"That's all sports desk. Here's Brian D. Two wins away from the NBA Finals. That is what the Milwaukee Bucks wake up to this morning that after Chris Middleton scores 38 points 20 in the fourth quarter is the box beat. The Hawks won 13 102 in Game three. The box looking to commit take a commanding three games to one lead in Atlanta Tuesday night and in baseball bring on the Chicago Cubs. The Brewers completely sweep of the Rockies. Sunday's final five to nothing. The Brewers welcomed the Cubs to town for a three game series that starts tonight. Coverage here on WTMJ begins at 6 35. We're all excited to have fans back, especially just in time for the Cup series. We all know the importance of these games. I'm not only division but also bragging rights. Newly returned, kissed in her with a big Sunday Big series over the Rockies this past weekend. Can you keep it up against the comes? Let's bring in the Journal Sentinel's Tom had record his libraries. 3 60 on Wtmj, Tom Good to see Keston Swat the balls as well as he was. He was talking in the postgame about having to go for the high strike, knowing that that's how he's going to be pitched, he says. It's just a matter of me. Sorting out which of those high strikes I'm going to go after. Yeah, There's you know, high strikes in the zone or find matter of fact. Those are usually once you can drive, but, hey, straight, you know, high pictures above the zone. Those are the ones that they were getting him out on regularly. So, you know, he's just turned that you know, those are tough because You know, the Empire doesn't always call it like right, like you thinking market dealer so but but he seems to have figured it out. Having some success is huge because success breeds confidence. And then confidence. Make sure relax a little bit. You know that the kids had a lot of stress on him. Both in his personal life with his mom being at all and then starting off the season. So far, he's had a life going on. And so he just needs to relax. He's got a lot of talent, and the Brewers need him. You know, they need him. They they don't have enough of fitters going good that they can afford contestants to not be a contributor. Tom. What's up with all the run support for Eric Lower and Adrian Hauser? I got to feel like Brandon Woodruff and Corbyn Burns are sitting around the clubhouse going. What the heck is going on? They have filed complaints. No, you're not allowed to. That's the way it always is. There's always one guy that gets all the runs and always longer. He doesn't get any. No one's ever figured that out. One of the big mysteries of all but At least they're pitching continually keeps them in games. And, you know, the Rockies have been a bad team on the rest of the bruise. Did some what they used to do it and I slept on. And now now the cops come into town, and I believe the Brewers have a three game lead. Now, um you know, they've been hot in the clubs have Had a tough series and ally even though they didn't know hit him One game. Um, but there's no getting good for a team that struggled so much, obviously, and also a team that's had so many injuries. Tom. How is how important is this series? Do you think at this juncture for the bruise to maybe be able to stretch that three game lead to four or five? Potentially six with the All Star break? Just a couple of weeks away is Is it too early to place really huge emphasis on a series like this, Or does it carry a little extra weight? Yeah, well, division games always be more because it's almost like two games you can learn of. The inclusion can make a difference. So division games, you play more of them. And on and it's important. So you guys looking forward to the return of Cubs fans to Milwaukee? I was gonna ask you what the weekend I got. I mean, I went to two of the three games I missed Friday. But they hit Saturday and Sunday and I thought I would see more fans in the seats but then talking it through. We did this on the air about an hour and a half ago about the various factors involved. It's like this is going to be a slow build up. But then maybe that's going to accelerate with all those. You know what's coming from south of the border for the next couple three games. Yeah, I gotta believe it, And that's you know, they've been in the thirties because it's taken. Sometimes that generates some tickets selling momentum after being on hold for some, but I got to believe it's going to jump now, right because Cubs fans will be on their team has been on the road. This is a chance for them to come up and see him within driving distance. So I got to believe that 10 years old job even on a Monday, Tuesday and men's day, a lot of people on vacation now, so I think it will be on the typical bipartisan crowds. And that's okay. That's okay. You know, they'll they'll tell everything that they could sell right now, right? Yeah, for sure, but it what bothers me the most. When Cubs fans come up here, it's not necessarily than being in the stands. It's the traffic. It's the coffee shops and the restaurants and bars like Get out of here. You crazy people, damn them through anything. They want to eat and sleep and drink here, too. It's like the places there's what's wrong to them. You know, we are talking the other day about how we've had to get used to traffic into the ballpark again. You know, last year you just breathe right in 10 minutes before the game time got any parking spot you wanted so You know, life. Being back to normal is both very, very fine and also in the sense of times, right? Yeah, The line is back at the Nacho stand on the club level. That was That's what I knew we were back. There is a line at the nachos. That's why Gene seat was empty on Saturday. Tom take care will do it again next week. Okay. You guys have a good week.

"division games" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Hurt. Next year's they were this year, right? And they also going to get the benefit of this year, which is the last place schedule. So that means that you get your division. But you're also getting some dogs. I think they match up with the NFC East in the NFC South. So you know Cardinals Rams Seahawks, of course, but then home games next year. Green Bay, Minnesota. Texans Colts and then the road games. Obviously in the division, and then you have bears lions Jags. Titans eyes well, and I think it did is there to set everything I might be? One game in Cincinnati is a site to be determined. I'm looking at it from holer. Today. There's gonna be 17 games in the 21 season, so They're not sure about Cincinnati. That's the only game but you make it land on their schedule. Now, uh, Atlanta is on their schedule. So you don't know the homes with you got the division games. Obviously, then Green Bay, Minnesota, Houston. In Annapolis, Atlanta at home Road games again Division Plus Cincinnati. Detroit, Jacksonville, Tennessee Philadelphia. Those roads and in Cincinnati hasn't been determined. So 17 games. Next season, 2021 as you said, it's the last place schedule last place schedule and and you know, that makes it tougher to worst in the schedule. But look, the NFC West is tough in there. That's why all the decisions are so difficult. Seattle is consistent. The Rams made the playoffs. Arizona's on the verge, they lost. Today to the Rams with the backup quarterback is Murray got hurt, but they ate made. I mean, this is the hardest division in football. You gotta make a lot of decisions because you went from first to worst. You could go first again or you could sit somewhere in the middle. This is a tough division. It's funny. You know, you guys, you guys got to schedule in front and you're talking about the 2021 schedule already, and I guarantee the players don't want to hear anything about next season and what's gonna happen? We're already talking about it. Quality to you know, we're talking about all these quarterbacks and getting a quarterback and this and that, But I'll tell you one thing that I'd like to see the 40 understood. They really Miss Greenlaw today, even though I'll show you played well. Um, you know, just seems to me that man. When you're in division where you're getting your getting four games a year from Russell Wilson and Cuyler Murray, you better be able to break down and space and Make tackles, so that means I don't You watch any of that Notre Dame team this year, but they got that kid Korma Woo Suk or Amoah, who's an undersized linebacker who's chest so fast, so instinctive breaks down in space. So naturally so effortlessly and just is, it just reeks of a guy was gonna make, you know, double digit tackles at the next level, and I know they have other needs and linebackers, not one of them. But, man. If you're going to get four games against two of the fastest quarterbacks in football, it would be nice if you had some guys who could bring these guys down in the open field consistently. Coram. Oh, it's gonna be hard to pass. So just just the thought there But obviously, linebacker, you know, maybe the most one of the most loaded spots on this football team with Warner Greenland disease barely gets on the field. But, man, those those defenders who are athletic and space you can never have enough of them. Scott's hanging in camera and want to jump in here, guys. Hey, Scott. Urine can be our guy. I love the gold rap. Happy New Year, First of all. I can't. I can't even imagine what's going through John. Let's just mind right now. But I'll just I could go on go so many ways what their needs are, But I'm looking at this offensive line. I'm seeing Um the, uh to the draft here? I see Sam cause me Big 66. You know, Offensive taco I'm looking at if there were they decide to keep Jimmy G. Is this your family? Larry? That old on Uncle Bob? I'm sorry. Good good Alabama. Right? Yes. Beef up that line, maybe give Maggie extra protection. My dog he agreed. Does not like that pick doesn't talk to beef up the line here. Be mad when he heard beef up your beef. He's like hungry, right? So, um, where you got? You got to? Well, our Oregon, you know, he's sick sticks. Just massive. I mean, what do you guys think? I mean, if they were to society, Triple U turn, Williams. That's right. Yeah, I agree with a left tackle and Look again. He might. You know you might have a good player there, but There's so many needs and there's so much unknown and we don't know the salary cap and all these different things, and we'll have an entire offseason to break down the draft and all these kind of things, But like there's just there's a lot of issues. It's who they're going to re sign. It's who they're gonna draft, but you know, I would hope that we're not talking about left tackles in tackles in general. For this team because they just took McGlinchy top 10. They just gave up a third round pick for Trent Williams, who was great this year despite his age, and I would I think that if you're gonna put it in order, it's figuring out what the quarterback is it Z looking at your defensive backfield and seeing where that is, it's a pass rusher opposite BOS It's It's looking into the secondary. Your safety's especially losing tart. Maybe more is that guy and you don't have to dress that. But Your interior offensive line. Who's your center? I mean, if you're looking at the offensive line, you probably have three positions that you may have to look at. If you can't re sign Williams, you're looking at center right guard and left tackle. So like there's a lot for this team to do. And in addition to that, it's making sure that you're not his injured. I mean, I look I like a guy like most, but he can't seem to stay healthy. So you gotta dress that position. Is a lot for this team to do. Yeah, and you know, and I said it before there before the game in the pregame show is that I would hate to be John Lynch. And I mean, it's a lot of tough decisions that have to be made and you don't have, And I think he said it in his interview that you know, in the past, they've had some money to kind of go out and do some things. And this is gonna be the first off season where they don't have any money, really money to go out and kind of fill some of these positions, so He's got to make some serious business decisions, but I think that tackle I think Sinan Trent Williams is huge. I mean, dependent. No, no matter what quarterback you have back there, you gotta have a new offensive line is going to protect him, and I think it starts return. Williams You know, it's funny if you could get the greatest quarterback, But if you're you know if the party's in the back field because you couldn't sign Trent Williams then then you know that quarterback who's his confidence and you're not getting the full You know, bang for your buck because they're losing confidence, and they're not playing well. So yet to me, it all starts up front. You look it offensive line win rate this year and who's right up there? The top of the list is the Buffalo Bills. And now they're saying you were watching their young quarterback develop. All was he developing because he's got now you know Stefan digs and he's got a line that can protect him. And so the 40 Niners have the receivers and I think they feel like they have the tackles. I know they're Niner fans going, though. McGlinchy I get it, but I think they feel they have the tackles. I don't think you're going to see them invest in an offensive tackle if they can re sign Trent Williams, But after the year the Williams had bust out your checkbook because he's going to command Top tier dollars and this is the peroxide, tough negotiator and it'll be very interesting to see if they can get him signed before the market opens. Because if not, Oh, my goodness, then Then suddenly that becomes your number one priority. You can't go anywhere without a left tackle. So I would say Sign re sign Trent, trying to figure out a way to reconfigure McGlinchey's body may be invested in interior offensive lineman. But that is not a high priority. I think the high priority has got to be the past rusher in the corner in the quarterback position. You've got to get those three things right first. That would be my assessment of it. Alright, guys. It is time for our call of the game, and it is brought to you by picking a pickle. Home of the best barbecue in the Bay Area. You have been to pick and pickle there in quarter. Madeira there in Emeryville, visit them online and picking a pickle dot com also called the game. Is brought to you by call..

"division games" Discussed on GSMC Fantasy Football Podcast
"Writing Second. Segment while still part of the birthday. You wasting. Lamar Jackson and Aaron Rodgers and we're just GONNA. Move on, continue talking about quarterback with pretty interesting matchups easy or tough. You know excuse me letting you guys do. What you want, with that information so One interesting thing about this. There are several top to your quarterback with not that difficult match, if need be paying attention to. The next one I want to talk about guys is Russell Wilson now it seems. Literally everyone sleeps on Russell Wilson I don't know if you know. He's just gotten the flack for throwing that ball on the goal line, but you know Russell Wilson's a great quarterback. He's definitely elite. He is clutch. He is dynamic. He's a playmaker and he needs to be on your radar. Now understand he's thirty one years old, but that means nothing He is going to be just as good as he was last season, and in several seasons prior. He is a very solid quarterback his. Playoff matchups for weeks fourteen, fifteen and sixteen, the New York jets. The Washington redskins in the La Rams. That's. Pretty, great, as we know, the La Rams really struggled last season to find their identity. The New York jets while their defense isn't horrible. Their offense is so bad that opposing offenses are constantly on the field, and Washington did not have a good defense whatsoever. They allowed a ton of touchdowns last season, and they're just I don't see them. Yesterday got chase young. Yes, he's going to help. Bolster that pass rush, but Russell, Wilson who can run around. Get away from the pass. Rush make plays outside the pocket. So pay attention to Russell Wilson guys now. The only problem Russell Wilson is he has a very tough division, but That could end up in very high scoring games. it doesn't matter if he wins or loses the Games and fantasy football, I mean. Of course you can have your own custom rules where we know. Wins and losses do certain things, but. If you, you know you're in a standard. Set up in your league these. Could you know his whole season? Playing the cardinals, playing the forty niners playing the rams. Those could all be very high scoring games constantly so. Russell Wilson, Guy I'm certainly going to be looking at also because he can scramble and get it done with his legs. So you know, that's always a plus in fancy football, and for the jets, the redskins and the Rams for those playoff matchups I'll take that for sure. Now of course You know during the season at midseason. We'll update these because you know. I'm sure you know there will be some defense that we defenses that we thought were going to be horrible. they're are GONNA, end up being great, possibly, even just solid and some defenses that are going to be severely underperforming. That will pay attention to so of course. Keep that in mind, but as of right now for you draft definitely pay attention to Russ. All right another. Now this. He has to easy match ups here, but the one I'm a little bit concerned about to Shawn Watson guys. He plays Chicago Bears Indianapolis Colts and the Cincinnati Bengals. Now Chicago. I know you guys might be saying what Chicago. But Chicago is not the defense that we knew it'd be just two years ago. they are nowhere near the used to be. they're not that crazy of a threat anymore. I used to think you know you could put. Chicago bears defense out against anyone. They're going to give you a ton of fantasy football points. Lock them up but some some key members have left that team, and now they are underperforming. Yes, it also has to do with their abysmal offense, not being able to stay on the field, but. That's another conversation. The Indianapolis Colts Bit Concerned About one because they're just such a well rounded team. I think they have one of the deepest rosters in the NFL and they're no slots on defenses well. No, they don't get a lot of attention. They have no one will. They did add to force buckner. Let's remember that I mean prior. They didn't have any hugh. Choose names with Justin Houston was a solid pass rusher. You're adding to force Buckner to that mix. Peer to. Peer Deceit solid cornerback they have a solid team, and not to mention the offense I've already spoken about it a bunch of bunch of times, but Philip rivers. That crazy offensive line. Nine hines pass catching back Jonathan Taylor Marlon. Mac was more than power. Running backs got T. Y. Hilton at wide receiver so they're a solid team all around. That's one's GonNa concern me, but that could end up. Being High Scoring affair is a division game We all know how Division Games can be pretty insane. Another L- Asking Week Sixteen. The Cincinnati Bengals give me that all day They were horrible last season of course They are probably going to win a maybe a couple more days under the leadership of Joe Borough, but he doesn't play defense so as of right now you can book that for a high scoring game for the Shawn Watson I really liked that matchup. now, of course you know. Could they end up doing a crazy one eighty kind of how the dolphins into the season last season shore, but again you know we're talking about as of right now so I guess I'll just say. Take it all with a grain of salt. All right the next quarterback. I WANNA talk about guys Tom Brady and This is an interesting one. Because you know, there's so much hype. Surrounding the Tampa, Bay buccaneers and Tom Brady, and it's kind of tough to make you know a sort of judgment. Call on him, but..
NFL Schedule Released
"The NFL is prepared to be flexible. Based upon the Pandemic Commissioner Roger Goodell released a statement which read in part in preparing to play the season as scheduled. We will continue to make our decisions based on the latest medical and public health advice in compliance with government regulations and with appropriate safety protocols to protect the health of our fans players club and league personnel and our communities. We will be prepared to make adjustments as necessary. One is just nice for everyone to have something to look forward to but Dan tell us about the contingency is the just in case things in the schedule your Susan the NFL releases a schedule. That indicates that they hope and plan to start on time and play the full sixteen game schedule as usual and that remains their hope. They're optimistic that it'll be the case but as you mentioned and has Roger Goodell mentioned there is obviously a chance and circumstances dictate otherwise so look for early things in the schedule that would allow for adjustments season being delayed season being truncated in week to everyone who plays each other and to the same bye week later in the year as their opponents. So if if that were to get eradicated you'll be able to make it up during the appropriate by weeks. There are no division games in week three or week four so if you had to miss those two weeks you could. You could have a season where everybody plays their usual number of division games the Super Bowl can be slid back a couple of weeks every city that gets awarded a super bowl has to have a contingency planning case. The game has to be delayed and Tampa obviously has one of those so those are the kinds of things that are in there that allow the NFL. A little bit of flexibility. If as they hope does not happen they have to make adjustments to the schedule. What's interesting we always talking about contingencies in the abstract? What if what? If a couple of years ago we actually lived in Miami Hurricane Irma came in. It was a very unusual situation. Tampa Bay was supposed to come to us in Miami to play the opener. That game was postponed. We immediately went into a bi week. Situation both US in Tampa and since we had matching by week's game shifted to later on the season so it was very surreal situation where we went training camp by week. We were all their players. Were allowed to be dispersed all through the country and then we reconvened in Oxnard California and the rams and the cowboys were tremendously helpful. We went back into a training. Camp Mood St Ross. The owner of the dolphins was tremendous. He put up a whole organization support. Staff families and our opener was actually on the road. Week two in the chargers against the chargers and we played sixteen games straight. So I know we're saying these things happen more in the abstract but who teams just three years ago actually live this very scenario. You have to be prepared for the what if and we all know putting the schedule together is so complicated anyway without contingency plans but it really looks like Howard. Cats and his team did a solid job of trying to prepare for everything.
NFL plans full season, starting on time
"The big news yesterday in the NFL in terms of what happens going forward should the schedule B. as it's supposed to be about you again they say it's going to they're offering the promise never full regular season full post season the vote happened yesterday to basically that it was a rubber stamp as we was gonna happen to allow the two more playoff record about your team plans to use a seven seed in each conference which means they'll be three games a wildcard Saturday three games while card Sunday including one on Nickelodeon by the way summer Sanders this text me back she's all in team summer will get you in the mood for that game absolute done but then the question becomes is that the most significant change what happened yesterday or is what happens in the regular season the more significant thing because by adding that extra wild card they've eliminated the two seed and the benefits that go with it because now only one team gets the bite each conference the number one seed and remember Kansas city got a by by being the two seed last year and they got to host the AFC champs of game because the ravens lost right to the Tennessee Titans so in your opinion what's going to be more impactful the idea of a seven seed and maybe them find a way to get to the Super Bowl which hasn't happened since Super Bowl forty seven or the flight to make sure you hold that number one seed down the stretch without question extra team in the playoffs for me extra team in the playoffs because we see wild card teams win the Superbowl it can happen just get in you can't win the Super Bowl if you're not the playoffs yeah I I think it's it's much more likely on the other outlook while Khartoum island wild card teams as the league as presently constructed right hand women anymore I think when we the last time we saw it was really back before the new CBA taking it back in two thousand eleven two thousand twelve when the effects really started to seep in I don't think with the current constraints teams constructed like that having to deal with this can win a super walk I'm with you on this one so again well greeted they will fight tomorrow yes I am a hundred percent on this because not only that but it make sure that you have meaningful games played unless you have a four game lead right right right it does I know he's lost all seventeen games this season and eighteen weeks next year with a seventeen game season because again the seventeenth game with the new CBA won't start till twenty twenty one C. right price all have a regular sixteen game regular seasons over seventeen weeks the amount of such significant football that's going to be played down the stretch to make sure you hold on to that number one seed I think it's going to be buying a whack and it's still one of the great things that last week when you have all those division games in there but to me as I I again I speaking from a former player there is way more teams involved now they could have a chance to get into the playoffs and I'm all

"Well you're a member of the forty thousand yard club that's good and you're the fastest person to ever get there in NFL history that's good but it happened in a loss and that's not good and I know you well enough to know that it's probably the furthest thing from your mind your accomplishment yesterday and I know you were hoping for a different outcome yeah obviously you know want to come away with the wind it's a big you know division game you know game at home and we just didn't get it done the number you know make enough plays really in all three phases to to get it done I guess a really good team a team is playing with a bunch of confidence in the team that was you know executing at a high level so this morning they're not gonna win but you know get a get a move on from it and and you know got to attack this next one got a chance at home to get back on the right track normally when Minnesota is coming to town I always say we're gonna say a special prayer for you Matthew because usually it's a sack machine you now allows rubs opponent over the years yeah they're they're just tie them it's not just you Minnesota Minnesota just traditionally rough on the lions and they usually have a big pass rush I think one time last year I think it was out there they sacked you ten times that was not the problem yesterday you you you you you know you're barely got hit yeah I had time you had a great running off into scored thirty points I mean thirty points is usually enough to win most NFL games talk about why that happens and what you did right on well I mean I think we had a good game plan going into the game on how we wanted to attack come in and how we want to kind of change at the looks form and then we obviously when I'm executed I think our guys up front played you know really well you know both in the run game in the past came it takes everybody you know I think our receivers are doing a great job getting open on time and and you know we're having a ball off we're efficient and all of that plays into you know me stand upright in and the second numbers being down really you know some of those acts were were almost coverage sacks for I wish I would get the ball out you know there were very few times where I didn't have a chance on the play I feel like I had a chance on every play to you know to make a decision to make a throw and and a lot of times the pocket was really pretty so you know hats off to our guys up front for you know Hamlin a a really good defensive line is that how you do it pretty good pocket is that the is that yeah so it's a pretty pocket it's it's pretty to me when I was going to look at what it was like yeah did you feel you had the match to stop with us down because I think the one field goal today a touch down into the into the game that was pretty much the difference between the two teams and was a pressure that when they met you then they went ahead you have to match him back in the one right before I have to I mean I I don't wanna get field goals yeah I mean I think you know each game is kind of different on how it's playing out in an obviously this wasn't this was kind of heading in that direction but to tell you the truth we don't ever take the field as an offense and go well we don't need to score here yeah you know we'll just hang out and wait till the next month so you know every time we touch of all we're trying to score and we're trying to score sevens and and you know we did that IT decent clip on Sunday but just not at a at a good enough click to win the game and and that's disappointing Marvin Jones had an amazing game here's a few of the highlights Stafford road dust.

"Show on a Monday we were thinking about kwon Alexander with the forty Niners another good game for him yesterday and he always calls everything legendary I put down label on the on our next gas Dicks don George who was on the call for forty Niners rams are you are you are you comfortable with that Dick is it okay if I call you legendary yes it does all of them still around what were what were your impressions yesterday this was kind of approving game for many for the forty Niners and I I guess they proved it well I'm gonna be honest with you I I thought and I've been watching football for sixty years believe it or not I thought that going in this was the game that is that the rams needed now with everyone needs the win but the ramp really needed this game they lost two in a row they add up you know played badly in their in their you know game against Tampa Bay and they're playing the forty Niners who have yet to play a team with a winning record right so far so now they're home and you think well whatever it is they're going to you know get what needs to be done and I thought that if the forty Niners didn't win this game wouldn't hurt them at all I mean they're born one then the lose the division game of the role and so on and so forth and so it was really a stunning to me how impressed I was with the forty Niners that I look at those numbers and I see where you're in the top ten in up in defense and and all that but now you're not playing the bangles you're not playing the brown do not playing the Steelers without Ben Roethlisberger do not opening up the season against Tampa Bay you're playing the ram and I know what they're having trouble but they're the defending NFC champions the way the forty Niners dominated them on both sides of the ball and I made the comment during the game like kind of question eight if this were a fight they will be will be which they should stop yeah yeah well in in particular the way the game started to I think everything you just said and then add in that the rams take their first drive don't even have to throw the ball and go a hot knife through butter and the most impressive part of the game for me which isn't being discussed I think very much was with the way the forty Niners in Jamaica rob Lowe handled that next drive to respond to that I thought set the tone for the rest of the afternoon I totally agree I mean what would your hit with a haymaker which is what the rams did to you guys you know on that first drive everyone now they are now they are all geared up I'll be there now pumped up the ramp and now they're great the defense is coming on to the field which already stop you're on the first series you know and and I and I thought aren't Donald going to come up big and he did have a a sack early and he did have a tackle for loss later but again I thought the forty Niners would you consider playing with your you know fourth and fifth hackles up front against our Donald rockers in company okay think of that think of not having used check who's who's more than a pull back as we all know and not having that element I thought that it was tremendous and end up you know my partner is a big fan who believe my you know Marx leva played for Mike Shanahan Albert and any love tile and in tile is like the mad scientist as far as drawing up plays and he really knows what he's doing and we we took a look at that but but I think more than that I mean it look at the new was a two score game that seems like the pipe organ as the game was going on and I thought the forty Niners defense was fantastic still I know there's also been a whole lot of talk about what the stadium look like I know the seeds are red I know it it started to get due to be more of a forty dollar crowd as the game went because maybe rams fans got discouraged and left based on what you just said that it it felt like a bigger blow out and then maybe the scoreboard indicated what what what is your your honest assessment of of what the split was and what that means for for the rams and and football in LA yeah and you know what this reminds we were in love with the week before we did the raiders bears game there and it would that be bear crowd in that game you know when that of course the raiders flooded that but I was a little shocked and and that is going to be interesting going in to the new when you go to the new stadium you know you know in Inglewood is that we're going to be asked yeah you know what what what what it's going to mean for the ram van I don't know whether the fan think of the ramp of done a kind in one year and you know the fans of the rams have never been you know maybe because it's such a huge city melting pot city that you know it's not small but like you know campuses goes what it what that is a buffalo in Green Bay and so forth so I think you get the the you know you you get the other side and they're a lot especially when the stadium concede you know as much as eight hundred thousand fans al has an even larger problem there I mean I don't know if you got a chance to see last night down the road at the the soccer stadium but the Steelers fans as they're known to do I mean completely took over that building and it was a it was a tough walk I think for the NFL and and with the forty niner fans earlier in the day I mean you know there's a lot of talk today about where they really they really jumped the gun on on pushing these teams to LA went when maybe there weren't enough fans to to support it well you know that's a great point and and you know a couple years ago we did an eagles game you know Chargers game there and the with the one in which I remember one of the eagle defenders rate worked waving his arm to get the crowd to bother Philip rivers you're managing this site the charger game I always felt that I know the legal field the deli needs it needed a team I feel that when the rams left and then the raiders left I felt that the fans were getting the best games on television every single week that they could get and they were thinking to themselves I'm a football fan what's better than this you know because LA is a little bit like San Diego Miami if some of those risks you know areas where you could do a lot of other things then March to a football game or sporting event and so I thought that when you're in LA you don't have a team you're getting three great game you're getting the best you know that CBS and fox can offer any word get that anymore because they got to get your team all the time Stockton is with us he was on the call of course for forty Niners rams yesterday in the forty Niners moved to five and now Dick it's it's always funny to me how the the expectations and and the thoughts of a fan base will evolve at the beginning of the year any forty niner fan would've been thrilled with eight made now they're five and all and all of a sudden people are gone boy this is that the five in all this is great but Jimmy Garoppolo still doesn't work as consistent as you'd like him to work what was your perspective on on him just yesterday in in in general well you know what when Jim Baker apple has the defense he has you know that the great that's like having a double neck under your feet and the you know if your trap beat artist so we'd always he's gonna have that great defense and they have that incredible running game okay the best running game around they're going to be games this year when he took on a falter I mean it happens to everybody it happens to every quarterback and they're gonna be games that he's going to you know not not get it done and you know he had to you know had enough games he started what thirteen games correct right yeah I think he's I think he's up to fifteen if you count the two in New England as well as thirteen to as an NFL starter yeah so anyway fifteen games so you know the forty Niners you know they're in a Cup division and and I like rob Lowe a lot of he is a franchise quarterback if you're gonna be a championship quarterback and I think the jury is still out on that did you mention that you will be visiting us here in the bay area when the Carolina Panthers come in in just a couple of weeks and I think it's actually the Panthers next game I think they've got a bar because they were in London so any thoughts on who might be quarterbacking the Panthers when they get yeah Robert Baer at the top it did you you know it came Newton is okay because this guy's one quarter role and the team seems to play better you know what happens sometimes you're better off not having the ultimate guy who's going to it you know just have to run but run a Knoppix and I think what we're seeing is the quarterback that's running the optics and he's going to be tough to he's going to be tough to get out of there to be honest with you I think it's going to be really hard to make a change because now you make a change and you lose and it's gonna be a tough game for them to get the forty Niners now what do you do yeah I I mean I think it's a fair point is really hard to take guys out in the NFL when they're winning yeah because they you know boils down to that yeah I agree yeah Dick Stockton weather's deco wonderful to have you before you run your feature does can you do the big feathers with us all right I'm not sure what it is but I hope with the fate we keep it a mystery on purpose here we go Dick Stockton on the big finish.

"Five oh seven the game that I will I will be attending a nice crisp late afternoon start excited about that but there's a couple things are waiting on a New York sports one of which is the status the same Donald and I would be floored absolutely floored if we heard that he was going to play in the next couple of days of the jets made announced today Sam spleen has gone back to normal Sam is now running around same is lifting weights same is throwing the ball Sam's got his pads on we're hitting Sam a little bit in practice now I in if it happens great if it's some bits of miracle fine but I just I I don't see it happening it's one night we got the news a couple of days ago about how he was only doing some you know football activities non contact football drills and all that had just told me that it would be borderline impossible for him to play this week so it's just another one of the situations of the jets are gonna have no shot and and they're gonna have to find a way to make this season relevant that's all partner schedule because here they're very easily get lost staring at a one six in the face and it's just a with all the hype and excitement everything going into the season it doesn't mean that they can't be some good moments later on maybe they're going to run and get you back into a wild card discussion at some point but. it just feels like when six at this point now I didn't Sam goes back in so cal boys at home is that a winnable game cal boys didn't look that great against a good football team in the New Orleans Saints I don't know never say never we saw the Tampa Bay Buccaneers going to LA and dismantle the rams things are possible but you just don't want to seem to be one six well I I you know I understand it's a miserable situation and it is just absolutely unimaginable that what has happened to the jets the first three weeks of the season has happened yeah and it's not just the quarterback is the best defense supplier that they have in their team of the rookie defensive lineman I mean there's a lot of things going on here I I I certainly would not I personally would not put Sam out there I wouldn't I aid he needs another weekend is bodies got to be right he's got to get himself in football shape again he's got to be mentally tough and and I I know that he probably is feeling an unbelievable amount of pressure to be out on that your here and we are our own worst enemies as athletes and we will put ourselves at risk because we will be good for idiotic when it comes to that and I know that and that's why it has to be up to core heads over there to be realistic about what the situation is here I mean the last thing you want is anything worse to come out of this yeah and if they lose a game and they go to own for the got old for and they're they're going to really make it difficult for themselves known for team makes the playoffs we know that but you know they have a very soft schedule of eventually they'll be playing the schedule that the but the patriots are playing now and then the patriots later on in the year wall and applying tougher teams and I I just think that when you take a look at this. after the I I I would even take it to the Jaguars the seventh game of the season here Dennis the dolphins the giants the red skins the raiders the bangles the dolphins by that time the ravens I you know who knows what they're gonna look like the Steelers and not a great team even though they look good on Monday night against the the bangles and then they got at the bills again on twelve twenty nine so I'm it how could they could they end up going you know one in five four two one four maybe and then it's you know then all of a sudden is gonna be a mad dash to the finish you watching the whole season will flat because of who they're playing yeah I was listening to our our overnight crew with the G. Jane Feliks drive in in in in my sleep when brought up this point which is the sum and thought of let's say the the jets lose every game into that dolphins game right that means a be all one seven the dolphins of course are going to win the game from now until then they'd be a one seven the jets could be the first ever team in NFL history to be an all win seven road favorite. about that. always seven road a favorite enacted that'll never happen again in the history of the NFL thank you that because that's that's what would happen right Sam comes back division game dolphins are that bad crazy let's go to Dustin and Belle harbor what's going on dusting good morning. Greg this is Dustin moving in on the attorney for the teacher to the steel railing Dawson how are you good morning I am very well huge fans you got it wasn't every day usually left at four seven get the kids ready okay getting text messages from everybody telling me that you're shooting down my client's case I'm not shooting down a case I'm just trying to figure out I get knocked out with a teacher gone that's all I just have questions it doesn't mean that a case is a little extreme I got to my own questions Dustin we're in the process of first of all the my client is a Long Island guys suggestion before Long Island I always do I a listen you're making this too specific your dust and I'm not talking about you or your clients specifically I'm just talking about the mechanics of the gone and not get somebody out to our ads along island guy you got me on that one what else. okay so he's living in touch report was in right field as you know gotcha and he walked up to the whole standing there with his three kids there did not young kids but they were kind of you know they were having a good time I I know people making fun of a grown man trying to catch a teacher but they did he walked up to the front row so you standing basically right on the one track on the front row in right field and there are girls throwing to T. shirts into the stands as you know if you see in the right yeah they got what the guns and they got the girls to throw the teachers next correct the people with the people to throw them throw them into the stands and the guy with the gun shoots into the upper deck shoes are most almost straight up into the air gotcha the gun missed it misfired either it was a malfunction or was this misuse and instead of being aimed straight up in the air he aimed it at almost ninety degree ninety degrees into my clients face for about fifteen to twenty feet away so as he leads feet away wow fifteen to twenty feet away and this research on this and it's in the newspaper article Daily News article that he did a really nice job on it's estimated that that gun that particular gun with that splits the CO two canister on his on his back like on on the horns fires at half the speed of a nine millimeter bullet which is estimated it usually goes by speaker setting but if you if you transfer that into miles per hour it's about three hundred and fifty miles per hour which is three times as fast as maybe the fastest batted ball will be headed to stand by but maybe like a judge or a or a a polar bear you know so yeah okay all right so it's possible to get out of the way right now we know that all agree with that I guess the the thing that I'm trying to figure out that was he so you're telling me that your client was not out by this T. shirt like like a boxer punches in. I'm sorry but no he was like is because I I the way I was was told and and reading the was knocked unconscious by this thing. he was not the backwards by the teacher which hit him in the eye at at point blank range and then he hit his head on the concrete all right all right very good so that that see now I'm understanding this a little bit more see the way that I understood it for since my own not due diligence I thought it was knocked out by the tee shirt itself coming out of the gun now you tell me gets knocked back by it falls over hits his head now I can understand the at the store a little bit better there are right things Disney's out about a videotape right which is the step. Justin this is gonna be on videotape somewhere right. yes what moment that's a very good question so we've asked the myth that we've asked the Mets to preserve all video which they have not complied with at this point which I'm sure they will through through a court order the case is three or four months old which you know that's the usual time it takes for a lawsuit the queue to be drafted in prepared we got it out real quickly I we sent letters actually a previous attorney before actually took days sent letters to the field have the have the videos prism and sent which they haven't sent yet but I would hope that they would at least be preserved in ice and that they were and we will get them in your time now the another phrase that I've seen is nearly blinded now when you're nearly blind is I mean like you lost like sight in one eye what do you how do you swing nearly blind. well he's got a tremendous light sensitivity right now where he can't really open his eyes during the day or pretty much at all I mean you can but it's just he he describes it as somebody just starting a small clenched white it is a life from the lake a few feet away and it's a semi detached retina which which had to touch it anytime and he's been recommended by surgery and he's there's a possibility of total blindness which is just a just a really bad injury I mean and the concussion was significant also these he's got memory loss he banged the back of his head he was a really bad impact hi listen Dustin I'm glad you got your side of the story out that's what we do here it's fair right we read the thing we have our opinion on a you can come on in you can dispute whatever we say in our both sides are out there and good luck to both parties and may be the smartest man win and if you would deserve some compensation I hope you get it if you don't I hope you don't okay that sounds fair. thanks to get me on and I I figured that you would appreciate a guy from Smithtown was three boys that game this is this is going to be able to view your yeah you're right but this is gonna be you know thank you thank you Dustin I I hope it's not me because I would like to have my site and I'd like to not get hit in the face I'm sorry but I'm telling you again it's no joke out when I'm sitting at the garden in those T. shirts golf one over my head things are coming at you pretty good now if if a guy's ten to twenty feet away from I don't know how far it is I'm sure they do a video to see it but if if that guy you know that is shooting the gun off makes mistaken sure to directly at somebody I can I could definitely see this and the fact that the guy fell back in his head that makes more sense either well that all right so now that makes more sense to me the thing that I was disputing was that you could be flat out and knocked out by a teacher but that's the thing that's designed sound like it but when it comes out of one of those guns at the speed at which it comes out at right and the thing is the T. shirt as well as wound pretty tight and it usually has a very tight ball I go yeah well. it is only a rope around or something a piece of string around the hold it sure so I mean it's a great thing for fans and everything else but when you have a mistake like this that happens this this is the best while also type in like what is why don't get rid of the teacher gone yeah I love that you love the teacher con man we get ready for shooting that teacher con is going to be shooting at the right way cannot be plenty about somebody yeah I mean get or anything ever to kiss cam right that's the thing it's gotta go teacher gone does not need to go kids games ago but. now that I hear that he was fell backwards and knocked unconscious deck as we sat there ring side watched the on day one hour knocked out Dominic Brazil member that the power that punch. yes yeah that's not gonna man out you can not not command out like that power that points can not be duplicated via tee shirt it just can't yes sorry sorry again if the if well first of all you have to remember that punch is coming from six inches away and now this teacher comes coming from ten feet away and. fifty miles an hour damn straight he can knock somebody out NASA if it's an older person in the chest could probably kill them..

"And that Redskins game is at noon that is the exact same way that the Cowboys started their season three years ago during back Prescott and golly, it's rookie season. They had the giants at home in the afternoon on Sunday. And they had the Redskins on the road. Sunday at noon to division games to start the season. I'm never a fan of that. I know that the giants and Redskins aren't anticipated to be solid or legitimate this season. But those are such important games. I don't like having to play a third of your most important games in the first two weeks of the season. You know, I agree with you. I think is maybe a personal preference. But I like the fact that it's to the vision gains off the bat, and it's two teams that really here's what I thought. I would do rather than pick them the win or lose. Because there's gonna be some games in here. I figured I'd rate it one to ten ten being the highest has a chance chance to win. Okay. Okay. So confidence in them one. I'm very confident my confidence level is ten but back to your point. I really think that is is a player it's hard to it's easier to get up for those games. In fact, that it represents Moore and fron because if you're if you went to division games in a row, that's a great way to start. Sure, you're building a little cushion there and your division. So I have no problem with that. I mean with that. I don't have a problem if you win them, obviously because. Yeah. I mean if the Cowboys come out that win the first game of the season. You're right. We're sitting here MandA to to run division, we already, but you know, to be I think there was twenty fifteen they want at home against the giants, and they went to Philadelphia, and they got that one. That was Tony Romo got hurt. And that kind of honestly kept them in the hunt all season long, even though Romo was gone..

"I think they will let him be a free agent and go on his way, at least, I hope so. I love Nick foles what he did. But should the eagles live in constant fear? The Nick it's going to be the back of all time and go to the giants and turn into Tom Brady. I get it. Everybody knows that they're thinking everyone's worried about their jobs, and it's like that is the worst case scenario Nick full, suddenly like search beating you up. Like this. I mean, he had an amazing playoff run. And he he was pretty good this year too. But to act like the eagles would never recover if you signed in the NFC east. I mean. Let's bring it down a little bit. And if there's a guy to give a little consideration too. I mean, Nick foles let a beach in a couple of division games over the over five years or something cares. Got to the bowl. Nobody calls it that Bardi people say he won you a Super Bowl. Anyway, let's do one more quick round. Because we got we got some birthday stuff to handle. That's more. Wow. Yeah. I'll be quick. I think the colts who have the most cap room in the league. And I know that under Chris Ballard, they've not really been big spenders. And there's a lot of reason to like the way that he's built the team through the draft. But maybe you gotta spend a little bit of money this time around work on that defense, which has largely been a no name defense. But overachieved how about you bring Dhamma consume in and have him playing like eight feet away from Darius Leonard and just blow people up week after week try running on that team. Well, my response that would be is indaba consume better than Margus hunt, this stage of their careers. I think so mortgage hit a much better year than Dhamma could suited this year. And we know he's a fit for abour flus defense. We don't give us, but they're basically playing the same position these days. I think hunt played a lot of nose tackle at the end of the year twos playoff. Fra definitely helps his value because I think in those two games. You in the in the NFC playoffs. You saw a real difference maker thing mortgage hut. More made more plays timber than made all year. Wes, let's stick with the colts. I was gonna say Landon Collins, you know, with the report that he's cleaning locker room, and the that's now being disputed are multiple New York papers, but the coldest beat writer just cleaning. That's all coats beat writers are all in unison that have Landon Collins makes it to the market the culture going after. But here's another guy. I really like Adam Humphreys, the bucks slot receivers agent. I like him a lot. I think talked about golden Tate, the similar to element. But Adam Humphreys toughness and run after catch ability is like Eshelman light. And I think he'd be a great fit for the colts chain mover in the middle of the field. They really needed a slot receiver last year. And didn't have a good one. James Winston loves that guy like design Jackson has always pissed because whenever he come. Whenever James is playing. It's like he doesn't get any targets. Adam Humphreys, gets them freezes incredibly tough and he's good. After the catch. He's like a punt returner into the catch. I think he's going to be a big pickup for somebody. Teddy Bridgewater feel like we talked about this last week as little as buzz around him. And is it because of one game in week seventeen didn't matter. Maybe I don't know. But I'm still excited about the possibility of him having a team again. And so why not send him to hell don't know Washington a place where he won't have to. He won't have the battle for job..

Because I don't believe it's one of the worst jobs that were opened in the National Football League. You've got a patient owner you've got out several outstanding players you just gotta keep adding to that Ed to the offensive line. And you know, Rick I can live with Devon white because I mean every mock draft see has LSU linebacker Devon white six one to forty. He's an absolute stud going to the Bengals at number eleven my feeling is. And I like the Bengals quarterback. Andy Dalton the red rifle. I think he can get you to the playoffs. I don't thinking he can win you a Super Bowl and a guy. Can I believe is Dwayne Haskins some day, and I like the Bengals to draft a quarterback into Wayne Haskins. He probably won't last two eleven. So you might have to go up trade up and get him. Okay. He's probably gonna go to the New York Jets or giants at six. Okay. And what what I'm afraid of is it the Pittsburgh Steelers knowing that Ben Rothlisberger is on the eighteenth tee of his career what one year max to me probably next year. Really should be it for Ben. They could definitely trade Antonio Brown because he is absolutely fallen out of favor with that franchise. Get a first round pick for him and use those picks to move up and take twain Haskins and. A whole bunch of Buckeye fans will become Steeler fans. No doubt. If that happens. So Ricky, and I know you're looking forward to baseball season, brother. So am I we're gonna talk who's going to be the reds center fielder? You got any predictions for me? Right now. Right. Well, I'm gonna put my chips to the middle of the table. And I'm gonna take Philip Ervin. Let's give him a chance and brother, we will talk soon. Appreciate the call from Valparaiso, Indiana, man. You are the man. Thanks so much Rik in Valparaiso Brandon's in Indianapolis, Brandon. What is going on paychecks for a little bit disappointed with I'm disappointed with the I like the Bengals stupid. I'm a colts fan. And what? Yeah. That was disappointing. They just couldn't generate anything and this this could be at for Adam venit, Terry. It is. I think it is what he's had a great career. You know? But I I don't know if it's the weather had an impact, you know. But I think Kansas City now takes I mean, I don't know if they can beat nor I could be wrong. You don't want everyone account New England out. But I thought we had a chance trickster, and I think a lot of people giving the colts a chance because. Defense is effective. But today, I think they just showed what they are about. You know, I think whoever has to go there. It's going to be hard for if it is New England or the chargers, but you never wanna Brady out. But I don't know. I think this year the chiefs get that stick it to them just kind of a morbid sense of if the New England wins tomorrow to have them get run out of the gym at Arrowhead. I would love it. Sorry. New England Patriots fans, but van I am tired of them in the in the AFC title game. I I am to see it as far as as far as the Bengals go. I I hope I hope they get the right coach. You know? I, you know, I mean, you know, the the Rams seasons. Don't go one. In hope. I wish the best for Marvin. I think he was a nice guy and all time for a change. But with the quarterback situation you were talking about Dwayne Haskins if the Bengals could draft him somehow cut me, they tried the read rightful or. Kind of like an AJ McCarron type deal if he would he would tutor Dwayne Haskins for a year and then Andy move on and make bigger dollars. Elsewhere. He would be trae trading. Yeah. He could he's like Alex Smith he could make a bunch of money elsewhere. But but the, but but groom Dwayne Haskins free year Dwayne takes over and twenty twenty. Andy Dalton moves on. I don't want to hear about what you're saying. Is you don't think doll the guy that can get you over the hump and away? Correct. Yeah. I think it probably win you a playoff game. I don't think you can get you to a Super Bowl and other that great guy. He's a good career. He's a good player. But I need an impact player taking snaps. As far as you say real quick. I know you won't get so much time as far as you see. Because were going on. 'cause I mean with not follow Butler, and because I'm from here. But. Did listen to you? See I don't think there's good as last year with oh, look who all you lost. But obviously football game tonight. But I did hear Macron's comment. He was not happy. But I think they're going to be okay. I guess against they're still NCWA. You probably know more about fourteen in three, and this is a very balanced deeper American athletic conference, and I'm loving the fact that Wichita states in there, and it's bringing back memories of the old Missouri valley when I was a kid, and that was the best conference in the land. And Brandon I gotta run man. Thanks. Yeah. Baby. I mean, I think so I really do. Yeah. They're starting to find themselves in just a huge boost to beat to beat Georgetown into comeback. Like they did. Thanks so much. I appreciate it. And I want to talk a little Cincinnati Reds when we return who is going to play center field for this club. And I wanna talk a little bit of the lineup one through eight man. Yeah. When we return
"division games" Discussed on RJ Bell's Dream Preview
"Seven point difference on a neutral. Oh, wow. So you're saying like this is cheap. Then. Yes. I don't think it's that expensive either. I think there are whole bunch of situational handicaps that all land you on the Browns here. I agree there. Playing with a fever pitch. I just got wonder doesn't the division game make the Bengals one. Like, I just don't understand why the Bengals would be out for the raiders. But not up for the Browns. You always play better at home with the team with nothing to play for in the road, period. That's always a better motivational spot. Was again, it was week twelve when two thousand ten the Panthers laying nine who did they play the first week of the season? The browns. I looked at six point spreads and then this year. No, no. I was talking to two thousand ten I was trying to remember what I was hoping. I was right about that year. Because I remember that line I froze so idiot Eric like six weeks of the season. I was laying six the Brown, right? Next game. Steve pheasants Rams favored by how much here fourteen against Arabs ONA. Fez, you got the Rams as the best team in the NFL. Right. I did previously. No longer. The Rams are currently the fourth best team in the NFL tied with the New England Patriots on my power innings. So all joking aside, though, where are you at with the Rams because you are defending them like like like you own stock in the ramps? I guess you do in a way because you made the bat with me what's the current future? Super Bowl odds for the Rams. I last time I checked I saw Rams were right around six to one. I believe what I'd. Them against you. We had a that. And then it went to to to one he was talking about it so much now, I haven't heard a peep in fact that tax them, and he didn't respond. Yes. Not not looking good. And I'm looking anybody who wants Rams out there, by the way at six to one little swapping. Absolutely. I'm looking to dump my Rams what's wrong with the Rams a bunch of things obviously quarterback play has gone completely south. And I think part of that is that they're missing their wide receiver Cup. I think the girly has been injured. So they can't just rely on the workhorse back to keep moving the chains. And I'm frankly, I'm more. This just tired team. This is their eighth travel that they've had to do since October seventh by I defined travel by having to leave their home city. So I can't that week that they had to go to Colorado as a travel week. That's a whole lot of travel versus three routine home weeks where they stay home and play at home. The November fires in Los Angeles. I think was a big distraction for this team. So with the injuries along with the distractions along with the bad travel. This team is really regressed. Maddie thoughts on the ramp. And some of it might be a little bit of complacency as well, as you know, your they they were so far ahead. The Rams and the saints of everybody that oh at least gonna get that. I you know that home that first row by in that home game. And I feel like they you know, they pulled it off a little bit. You know, they started to you know, not play quite as hard. And let's face it that Marcus Peters injury excuse that we were making up so long come to leave repeaters Peter's that Marcus Peters injury. You know, we're seeing always banged up. That's why he's playing so bad. I think he's just may be gun to that point. They Cornerbacks get to where he's just not an elite level cornerback. He's still in his rookie deal though. I. Sometimes these guys few injuries. And suddenly, you're never this. We see Cornerbacks have amazing two year runs. And then all of a sudden can't, you know? I'd injury comes. They can't play a lick. Its fez is this your favorite total. I it's one of them. Let's go. Let's make this one your total Basma. In fact, listen we can't go show without this. Let's do it..

"division games" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"We have we weren't as you saw tonight. We're throwing punches and we weren't covering up. We're coming out fighting and it happened early. Mr. third-down gay goes for it on fourth down. We're just we're just Adam the whole time. So we're not gonna stop regardless of the record. We're we're moving forward. We've got a great team as always said. With the character of this team. We're down we're down to games it wouldn't over for us. We know that the people we have the team we have steady move and everything that we do. It was absolutely mandatory win got this way. You know, if we wanted to keep our hopes for one is division and making or in making the playoffs. So I mean, we had to go out there and wanted to skip wait on this. One Shannon surprise the Cowboys won. I wasn't really surprised for the simple. Fact this division game Philly not the Philly of last year and the Cowboys that they put the when they play when they run the ball with Ezekiel Elliott because defense with fundamentally sound they can get up your quarterback that can stop the run. So we know what they're capable of on offense. The thing is that Zeke got going last night, which means instead of throwing the windows that was throwing open doors. And when you let z go for thirty five thirty two eighteen fifteen thirteen he's over one hundred yards on five carries. Well, it makes it very difficult for you to. Play the past. Because now the safeties must jump down lab backer. The binding on all all fakes whether you hand him the ball. They got they got to honor because they got to try to shut out a z. And that I thought he missed some throws early, but they still with in when you can run the ball, and they were getting what twenty eight rush attempts one hundred and seventy one yards six point one yard carry. But that we needed to make throws he came up. If you look at right before the half Bill, they're going to be able to get the ball back that use timeouts and that hit him with two big throws that really kind of broke the game open and gave them some breathing room. Because I feel that they wanted that ball there. I think the eagles wouldn't go down. And it worst case scenario get a field goal, but give the Cowboys credit offense line looked as good as they've looked all year defensively they were flying around to the football. Even though they only sack cartoon what price they put a lot of pressure on him and give cards and credit for standing in there. But I don't think in the first half he with his sharp. It's I've seen him. I know he can play better than that. And he kind of picked it up and even as he picked it up late in the game two thirty and fourth quarters skip. He's still through some balls that behind the receiver guys may tough Vega catcher for him. But the Cowboys credit. That Jalen Smith. Now, the tackling documents using see all of a sudden, you live the tackle the document. But I turn. No k but the spearhead the guy that gets that Jalen Smith when you look for middle linebacker, you look for two things in the middle linebacker is a sudden and violent those are two things that you won't you look at all the great middle linebacker the Ray Lewis. The buckets is in the single Terry. All these guys get their sudden. And they're violent this young, man. He's coming down. He'll he's bumping people DeMarcus Lawrence. He's good a lot of money giving you wanna keep that young, man. So give them credit the Cowboys. And you heard zeke's in order for us to contain the have any glimmer of hope that we can win this division that we can get into the playoffs and having home playoff game. This was a mandatory they went to Philly. They took care of business. Now, they have hope I actually glad they want because there's nothing like to see excitement when you think something is going to happen. And then have it snatched away from you? But I want you to have that intensive that you came out. We're where today all that fellow Briton and look it up. I would have we have that on Monday. I hope so. Yeah. Hope so too so Jenny. Could you ask me the question? You ask him like what ten minutes ago some tries all of sleep over here..
"division games" Discussed on Mornings with Keyshawn, Jorge & LZ
"Chip on a shoulder that he that he thinks he's been disrespected, even if he wasn't intentionally disrespected in his world and his mind he was his respected, and he's going to go out there and try to to write that right now. The Ramsey take care of business on Sunday. They've got Seahawks. And I don't think the Seahawks are great team. But I also don't Keyshawn, but they're not a bad team. Either. All Keyshawn stuff aside, the Seahawks aren't good. But they don't stink. Either clay poorly. You can. To them take it this way, put his way, you talked about Marcus, Peter when he's disrespected when he feels his back since corner. Chip chip on her shoulder is gonna come out. I think the Seahawks that way about the Rams Rams, even when they were bad did well against them, and they kind of had their number. I'd even wouldn't Jeff Fisher was here blessed. But when he was here, they still did well against Seattle. That's why I think it's a tough game. Not that they're they're very good team. But against you know, they look at the Rams kind of glitz and and surf and turf. And let's stick to them. And that's a tough game. I don't think this is one you can just overlook. No, no to number one. It's division game. Which your point? It's always difficult to they got Russell Wilson. I if Russell Wilson's on the other side, we saw up in Seattle when they played each other. What was it a month ago or so that Russell Wilson kept them in that game? Seattle isn't as good as the Rams and the Rams had to go for it on that fourth down play to basically ice that game. Not because they love the opportunity to go for it and close the game out. But they decided to do what they did. Specifically keep the ball at a Russell Wilson's hands. This. This was an opportunity not to just win the game with your offense on the field. But more to the point to not let Russell Wilson do what he does. Because he's one of those guys in there in the middle of that run. This is the second half of that four quarterback run you go back to play there Rogers. They beat him. They had to go to New Orleans and deal with drew Brees. They get their first loss of the season. Now, you got to coming up right now. Russell Wilson at home and then Patrick Mahomes, Monday night football in Mexico City. This is the middle of that. If they get through this with three wins. They probably get to the end of the line with fourteen or fifteen wins. And all of a sudden you're looking at the number one seat and New Orleans has to come out here to play that game. How critical is it for the rows to have home field. And it's great question, Raj. I don't think it matters as much to them as it might to somebody else. I think that if you're the Packers or if your Pittsburgh, or you're one of these teams that is is has a distinct field advantage that where there's weather and there's things like that. It makes a big deal. The Rams first of all there's not really weather out here. So there's no. Built in advantage the way that if you have to go to play New Yorker Green Bay or something like that number to the Rams while they're gaining fans. They don't have that passionate fan base, or at least one hundred thousand of them to fill that place the way that other places might and the other thing the Rams of lost twice on the road under their roadways. They've lost a Minnesota the loss to New Orleans to really good teams that were playing at a very high level in both of those games were close. It's not like they've gone on the road and gotten smoked by those chance to win both of those games. They didn't. But you're talking Sean McVeigh's in the middle of a second year. They've lost to road games. I don't think it matters if their home away, that's not bad at all letting matters for the saints more. That's what that's what. Because I don't see the saints coming out here. We're looking ahead at like Peterson. We're going to see you again. I think it matters more for the saints in it does because you mentioned that road record. What is that can lead into or ten and two now something into however, many they've played into..

"division games" Discussed on Championship Drive
"That was that was like an African toucan. Like I feel like that's the one game that comes in cannot lose because then it's an Atlantic Division game. It puts them behind NC state then has to lose twice which is possible in order for Clemson to get back in it. But I feel like Clemson can go lose to South Carolina and win the ACC and they would still be okay. But if they lose that game NC state, I feel like they're in. They're in big trouble. Be okay meeting they'd be in the conversation club, right? Yeah, not not not a shoo-in, but but not sure. Can we agree? We always talk about college football, playoff, expanding that Clemson North Carolina State game is in essence, a college football, playoff or playoff elimination game. I think in in the middle of the season like we talk about, we're always program that college football playoffs happen. You know, at the end of the year four, five weeks after the last regular season game is played. I like playoff games in the middle of the season and that North Carolina State and Clemson game is a playoff game in the middle of the season. When people are expected to be at their best in the middle of the season Peter, here's your, here's your final. Nobody should ever again, pick Wisconsin to make the playoff, let alone win the national championship. That's fair. My deal with those continous. How many times can you get left at the altar? I deal with this with am fans all the time of going, hey, we're five and six zero and under Kevin sullen, we knew it was going to end right? We just knew the shoe. The other shoe was going to fall four, Wisconsin. I don't know if they can find the game changing dynamic, quarterback that changes everything, the twain Haskins guy, right? They're gonna find good quarterbacks in in in Peter. Joe borough that for a stretch doesn't turn the ball over because their defense should be good enough in their run games should be strong enough to sustain right, but it. But in order to win that conference met, you have to have. I think, dynamic quarterback. You have to have a game changing quarterback because guess what? The Ohio states of the world, the Michigan's other world, Michigan state, even the Iowa's. Okay. When they're playing well, they too can run the ball and they can stop the run that that is traditional big, ten football. We've seen. What we see now since urban got into this league is you have to have a game changing quarterback to win that conference. And I don't think that they've had that it was kansin nor do I think Paul, Chris offense leads itself to recruiting a Tula or Dwayne Haskins that that's the right fit or opening it up that offense that way you're more schedule reliant without that quarterback in terms of your margin. All right. Have their last one for you and you got ten seconds since the team with the nation's longest, active win streak has no shot at making the plow. It's obvious. Are playoff system needs to change? Ten. Oh, nine. Now. And his story. Live by. I have three kids a lot to do. The creek. Oh, that's killing me. That's how she should.

"division games" Discussed on PTI
"But I'm Mike low abundance national positive thinking day Tony. What are you currently positive about? I'm Tony Kornheiser. Good hair day. Don't you? Thank you. Good hair. Go back to the John. So what's the weather like in Chicago, no clouds in the sky seventy-one down here. You're lake that did you? Did you go out and play nine this morning? Now. Really, I don't believe you got a hurricane bearing down on, you know, that's south of us. We hope everybody is. All right. And we hope it's hope every Caroline is. Absolutely. We're gonna PTI boys and girls. In today's episode Yonki struggling. Triple g goes after canal. Oh, and Steve Young joins us for five really good minutes. But we begin today with the Thursday night football game, Baltimore, Cincinnati in a division game, both teams one on Sunday, but the ravens won very bigly. They put forty seven points on the bills. Joe flacco threw for three touchdowns without an interception. We'll Bundy expect to see these same dominant ravens that we saw on Sunday. Of course, not the ravens were playing a completely toothless hapless team, Buffalo Bills. No, and I don't care if the bills in the playoffs last year. Right. Like the Cleveland Browns of last year so far this year. So no, I don't expect to see that. I don't think the ravens a put up forty, seven or forty nine or whatever the hell it was. I don't know. Expect them to just trounce the Bengals. Look, the Bengals often undermine themselves by doing the dumbest things in the league, but the bingles can play. They can move the ball. They did last week scored their own points. They went on the road, so I expect a close division game. What about you? Well, my thinking is the same as yours. These are essentially to defensive clubs more than offense of clubs. So I don't think we're going to see all that amount of points. What I do find interesting is this is that on both these teams, there is a quarterback who's time may be running out in that particular city in Joe flacco and Baltimore, and Andy, Dalton and Cincinnati after playoff blunders, by Andy, Dalton in recent years. So they're almost fighting for their jobs and their two terrible numbers that I wanna point out to you. And one of them is flacco in Cincinnati in his career is three and six with six, six touchdown passes and thirteen picks, and he's never in his career, thrown consecutive games with three touchdown passes and Andy, Dalton in prime. Time is five and thirteen. He's all. I mean if we saw two very big offense as last week, we could regress to the mean this week and it won't be that good. Yeah, I think Dalton should be and maybe will be a little bit better in prime time, but that's about what the ravens and flacco ought to be in Cincinnati. That's what they should be three. Six..
