"Tested positive this morning, Austin Schlachman And Damar. Dotson reportedly are two guys in close contact that were sent home, Vic Fangio said. Let's just do zoom today. Um and not, you know. Chance. It. And the Broncos have done As well as any team in the NFL. I mean, you have to give them that when it When has come to these protocols and Ah! Staying healthy and everything that Broncos have done one of the better jobs of any team in the league. But It goes back to what Vic Fangio said a couple weeks ago, going in the New England game, like just when the Broncos players were complaining. Be thankful. It's not you. And Here We are, with the Broncos now being the team that has a positive test. It's inevitable and you guys know what's going on in our state right now. You know that we're you know, going back down the level two or whatever. Now I have to. It's like the the the Terrorism colors like I gotta learn What all this Means for everything I could never remember. But, you know, we're backtracking here on capacities and restaurants and in public places and things like that. The the Health Department. Estimates that one out of every 200 people in the state right now have it. And when you're a roster of half 100 guys Ah, you know, Not to mention that you travel all across the country to collide with other guys for three hours on a Sunday It's inevitable. Inevitable that every team will be affected by this at some point. The good news is it's just one guy. Although you feel for Graham, Glasgow. He was very positive on Twitter earlier today. Said. He's feeling good, so that's good to know. Um Still waiting for the tweet from the guy saying that he's doing terribly Not that I'm looking forward to it, but it seems like These athletes, they're like. No, I'm good. But anyway, that's I don't mean to go down that road because that's a whole another subject for a different platform. But, um Doesn't look like the game's going to be altered. But again that is dependent on their not being mohr positive tests. And I think Vic Fangio made the right call in just saying, you know, forget it. It's just not Not have practice today and let's try to be as healthy as we can be. And Not Exacerbate potentially the problem and let's try toe get a game in on Sunday. So one positive test for the Chargers one for the Broncos. But contact tracing Being what it is. Guys were quarantined. Now they're good and, ah We should have Ah, game with a little bit of jockeying and lob it little bit of maneuvering. But ultimately two o'clock on Sunday it will come down to drew lock in Justin Herbert. That's What this game is is going to be and Ah, you wonder if Drew Locke is going to have some of the Problems that he had against Kansas City. In the sense of You know, constantly trying to throw deep. Let's say Justin Herbert and the Chargers jump out toe like 10. Nothing lead. Will we see Drew lock revert back to some of these habits. He's He's been asked to much this week about it because here's the thing after the New England game. People were quick to point out that guys were dropping passes. Yes, the offense wasn't spectacular, but in terms of drew lock The receivers were letting him down. To great extent against New England. Kansas City Drew locker was the biggest problem. So the focus and the blame has really been on drew lock this week, and I do think that he Will be more cognizant of where he's throwing the football and, well, maybe not be so dead set on bombing it downfield. Sternly think the Broncos Would hope that's the case. And I think that we'll get a little bit, But I just don't want the Broncos to lose their aggressiveness. Um Because they think that it gives them a slightly better chance to beat the The Chargers on Sunday, but it'll be interesting. Good measuring stick for Drew Ock for sure. But a good measuring stick for this Broncos team in total, because I think they and the Chargers are ah I think they're You know, they're the Mame of the two Spiderman pointing at each other. I think that For different reasons, but I think they're basically on the same level. Um And why, but we'll find out on Sunday. Try being interesting one. Story number two today. Still with football. I'm meant to bring this up. The Buffs have named their starting quarterback if you did not see Ah! They got their opener next weekend against And they have decided the name Sam Neuer, their starting quarterback for this season, and according to Brian, how friend of the program from the Boulder Daily camera, he says. That Neuer has been a little bit better operationally, then Tyler Lyttle. That said the competition's very close and he wants to give both of them some playing time, which That is just music to the ears of bus faints right or any team. Right when you say that you want to play both quarterbacks. Not usually a good thing and not that we were expecting. You know the quarterback position to be an area of strength for this Colorado Buffaloes team, But it will be Neuer Game the start against We'll see where we went. Where goes? Of course, CSU last night started there. Ah! Season, and it did not go well..

"Made Patrick Mahomes I. Think look look average. Now, I'm not now you're don't don't take my words out of context here. I'm not saying well, homes is average. He's the best player in the NFL. But this broncos defense played well, you had one half of your team playing well. And I don't think the offense I mean I don't think there is bad as they looked. On. Sunday. I think if lock not taking those chances. I think you're seeing much closer game. Are they winning that game? I mean after the Broncos got that fumble recovery? Seven nothing chiefs look like they're just gonNA run down the field all day Alexander Johnson forces that fumble. And you're thinking okay. Well, we just turned the tide. In this thing you score you missed the extra point. Brennan Mattis Does Not Miss Extra points. Yes the chiefs are better than the broncos. Maybe much better. Maybe I'm way off they are better I'll give you that nobody's arguing that. But you have to admit everything that could go wrong on the offensive side of the ball and special teams went wrong for Denver. How often is that going to happen? McLean says not to mention. John, Winfrey had no chance didn't we trade up to draft him elway should let me drive for. I don't know man. The draft has been A. mind. Boggling for a very long time for me. Dixon's sending the laugh the cry laugh emojis. Yeah. You're right. The scoreboard shows at forty three, sixteen you got it. But this is why you have to you. We're looking at the entire thing here and I know broncos country. Some of you were ready to write drew lock off some. Are you saying it's only games I'm not saying it's only eight games I want to know who this guy is but this this four week, this four weeks stretch here is gonNa tell us everything we need to know? If you fail this than the broncos need to be doing something else I think mentally you got to tweak something withdrew. that. That's up to Pat Shurmur that's up to this broncos. Offensive side to figure that out and I think they will I don't think you're going to see. Anything like you saw Sunday I. Think you're going to see drew lock Not playing so far outside of himself I think he wanted to put on a show. And he's not there yet thirty nine minutes after the hour. Colfax, let's get the latest on the local sports flash..
Fresh update on "drew lock" discussed on The Pat McAfee Show
"Sunday went the way it went. Now it's now it's all we've got to abandon that, and now it's you know, three yards and a cloud of dust. That's not going to get it done. Against the Chargers. I promise you running Run run run is not going to be the Ella Charger's not with Justin Herbert. Playing the way he is drew lock doesn't have to match him Throw for throw. But The Broncos have to take their shots, and this is a decimated secondary. No. Derwin James know Chris Harris. This is a team that you can exploit on the back end. Why would you take away one of your biggest advantages in this game? Just because Drew walk through a couple of interceptions against arguably the best team in football. Sunday to me is One of the most important games of the season, and Zach alluded to this stretch is going to be very interesting with Atlanta, Vegas and Miami and I think I think Vegas Has proven to me that there probably a step above the Broncos. But none of those other teams have convinced me that they are and we'll see what The Dolphins look like what to us. I love Teo and away. Justin Herbert and Joe Burro have come out and played. Maybe two will do the same thing and all the sun. The calculus changes on the Dolphins game and and the Dolphins are much bigger. Task than they were going in. But this this month I I agree with Zach that this was going to be a better gauge where the Broncos are, and also there. Relatively healthy. And now we just need to see what their offensive line looks like. And the charges were dealing with the same thing with having to shuffle some guys around so If you're ever looking to get some pressure on the quarterback, Maybe this is the weekend to do with both teams tryingto. Clog holds on that their respective offensive lines. If you want to react to anything that Zach said 5 to 29872. Let's talk about The higher the tiger's maid, shall we? I guess there was I said yesterday. I think there was another opening forgot Detroit. Make open. We'll talk about it after this.

"And solo the day. Well, of course I have you my main man. Jo Jo is visiting Mom, So we wish him and the family the best. Is it possible? I know you guys do to, um, what a great day we have here in Denver, Colorado. What a wonderful day. It is one of the most beautiful fall days. I think that we're going to get this year. I don't know if we're gonna have another Friday and we know in Colorado Fridays are fantastic. Fantastic Fridays are fantastic in Colorado. And I tell you what these are the days that I remember when I was a golden buffalo running behind Ralphie on days like today where it felt like This was the most magical place in the world. I remember being a teenager thinking you got to be kidding me. This is this is the kind of whether we get for kid. Like me from Houston. This has been the most unbelievable weather transformation that you can never ask for so days like today are not unusual. It's just I'm always thankful that I get him when I do because it could be nasty like it was last week and We know that those days are part of our mics here as well. But today we have today and and we're very, very, very happy about it. News out of the Denver Broncos. Pretty big news is that they have Um, some guys that are Part of the cove. It 19 list. The guy. That is the biggest question mark in my opinion. Is not Graham Glass cow who's going to be out? I don't think he has played well in particular this year. But the guy that I am most concerned about and we don't know how it's gonna work is the Mark Dotson. Who Um Have been sent home because they were in close contact. With Graham glossed glass cow Austin Sloman was also sent home. But let me tell you why. It's It's not Graham Glass cow. This week, the Denver Broncos take on the Los Angeles charges. Los Angeles charges have Ah, great defensive line, and it's led by a guy who's been all pro. Left defensive end. Can That position. I was looking at least neutralize with some help from Ah, tighty and oh, maybe running back in the obvious past situations. And right now, it seems that you know We're gonna have to give whoever starts over that the right tackle plenty help. If this is one of the most disappointing covert 19 case is that I can think of going into an important game where we're trying to get a real evaluation about Drew lock. This is a lot of heat. We're talking about a lot of heat coming from that left side, and I'm not really happy about it, and it's just the way it's going in 2020. That's just the way it's going. I I wish that I could say that it's it's it's one more. One more injury or one more covered 19 case that we have, and we could just look Teo and start player into this mix. This is terrible. The more dots and Um ah, Damar Dotson and Ah, bowls have played an excellent brand of football. I want to make sure that I say that every time I get a chance, they've played a brand of football that is a winning brand of football. If the quarterback has taken sex, it's not because of what's happening at the tackle positions. Those have been problem areas here in Denver for the longest we've had tackle after tackle after tackle play poorly. We even had Guys saying that way, said, shut down Bowls, Very bowls from last year, and certainly you know he was having a tough time. But it was all mental mistakes. It was It was bully mistake's pulling guys down and not understanding the the nuances of plan the left tackle. That was his problem, and the guy hadn't played enough snaps, not he's played the requisite snaps. To be considered a great left tackle. And I'm going to say that again. Ah, great Left tackle. He was the highest grade It left tackle in all of football, OK? I want you to hear that. Ronnie Stanley, the left tackle from the Baltimore Ravens. Just got a five year deal for $98 million. It was five years, right. Iraq wasn't five years of six years. Take it with five years in five years in $98 million, nearly $20 million a year. That's how expensive it's getting. What a Denver Broncos to re sign Garrett bows to a long term contract because once again, he's playing better than any left tackle in football. Do you believe that? I can't believe I'm saying that he's played better than every left tackle in football and the guy opposite him, Wass. Yeah. And and for all arguments sakes, the third tackle on this team, meaning that I was started was join James, who Phil's opt out because of covert 19 this year. Which gave us a larger Alexander. Liza workers. Excuse me, Elijah Wilkinson. Elijah were curson didn't play great if you ask me, OK, Damar Dotson was inserted a salty old NFL veteran over there on the right. Tackle position, and then he has been off the chain. He's been off the chain. He's the kind of find when you go back, and you re evaluate everything that you did in the off season. He is one of those top three kind of moves. That includes the draft the way that he's playing right now has just been outstanding. So to see him on that list were glass go. That that is. Ah, I'm hoping that we can get multiple tests today. Tomorrow and Sunday morning, clearing him because I can't wait to see that matchup. That's the matchup you want to see on Sunday, but if he's out, I'm telling you right now it's it's It's not the same. It's not the same game. It's not same game. So, um, I'm hoping to see Dotson and I'm hoping to see Bowles the risks of this year. If we can just lock that down. I feel so much better about the Denver Broncos on the offensive side of the ball, but we have to see what the test results come back over the next couple of days. We don't even know way don't know It could be a situation where we have to postpone this game. But one thing that we're not going to postpone is our.

"Broncos canceled practice Friday after they had player test positive for Co vid nineteen offensive linemen. Graham glass cow is is what we're hearing at this point. Of course Mike Muntjac entered the COVID nineteen protocol last week he wasn't present at practice Wednesday or Thursday. They didn't name the player at first but now that is news all over twitter I guess I have the question. Why Why are we having this game and not move in which I'm not complaining? But why was the Patriots game moved around for a couple of players? But you're seeing that this game is not moved around chargers had one too so. Is. That patriots thing was that so that they could potentially get Cam Newton back. How about this Colfax. If peyton manning was here, he was the quarterback for the broncos and his lineman was down. Do you think the new think the NFL would find a way to? Move this game out I just don't think the broncos get that kind of respect. I know they're running out of time to reschedule things. They've already talked about moving the super bowl back by four three or four weeks. So that that's a little bit frustrates a little frustrating but the game is plan is planned to go ahead and like I said, I don't have a problem with that mine was the fact that we moved to the game and then basically just said Oh by the way guys your by week. Hope you had fun practicing. Weird I of a sex line three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine, our power to play sports poll question is available. It's broncos related today we we hit the rams. Pretty. Pretty heavily throughout the week. So we'll go broncos today. Think about this before the chargers game because this game us a lot. The broncos do you like the direction the broncos are heading. With Vic Fangio. Pat Shurmur. Drew Lock. This this defense the scheme. John. elway. Do you like the direction they're heading? Would you like to see it play out or? Are you ready to see this thing just torn completely open. Break it down from top to bottom by by elway by Fangio drew locks nutter guy we are trading off assets and here we go. Trade deadline's coming up reason I ask and obviously my deep thoughts from a wandering mind my quick take on the broncos in their lack of offensive identity. I talk a lot about elway's issues. That's really impacting the broncos. Colfax I make this comparison. I kind of feel like John Elway, have you ever been to the grocery store hungry you ever? You know they say not to do that, right? Don't go to the grocery store hungry because you're going to buy a lot of crap. You're never going to eat you see stuff and you're like, oh, definitely gonna eat those fish sticks I'm doing something like that. But I'm not. But you're not, you're not thinking health when you're hungry, right you're thinking about. All the junk food that you can buy. ELWAY's like that. He goes into the grocery store. He's starving Oh there's too wide receiver. Sweet. We don't really need them but you never know Oh there's Melvin Gordon. Let me get him. Let me sign him. We don't really need him but we're going to go rather than getting the things that are good for you like carrots and apples and all that good stuff right? Well Offensive Lineman. or a defensive back or linebacker that would have been the nutrients you need it in the draft and free agency but instead you went out with the sexy picks go Caja Hamblur in the second round. You get another tied in you draft tied in you and you and your sign you sign one in free agency. So I feel like always a lot like that and so that's the question. Do you think that that will get better? Or. Would you like to see this this organization just torn completely apart fifty one minutes after the hour we'll take a quick break when we come back wrap up our number one, it is football Friday. got a lot to talk about today we get into the Broncos chargers preview. I called it a must win if you want if you WANNA keep those playoffs. Actually. In front of you right.
Broncos running back Melvin Gordon cited for DUI
"Melvin Gordon just got a Dui did and the Patriots may or may not have cam. Newton. So good luck job go ahead. Yeah. Let's. Let's start with the broncos because the story for the broncos. A number one is we'll drew lock play that's number one but the story for the broncos. was going to be what would the rotation look like with Melvin Gordon and Philip Lindsey now, the question becomes is Vic Fangio going to discipline Melvin Gordon. Normally the NFL waits until the investigation is over to hand out discipline for things like that but that doesn't prevent the team from doing so so let's see if it does Melvin Gordon get benched as you know the old college coach thing he said a quarter you know does he sit a half does exhibit game I don't know that's something we're going to have to research this week so I would bump up personally Philip Lindsay on my personal depth chart if I had him just on the hunch that big could move on. And and. Put Melvin disciplined him. Somehow they're not gonNA cut him but like disciplined him somehow.

I think the broncos have. Had a nice path I just I just think they're makeup. They have less. That can go wrong. other than the quarterback, so I guess that is a huge thing, so.

Because, you did say that to me because I was in my brain is colts was the first name that came to my mind, but I'm just still trying to think there's a better answer for me. I mean it depends on Big Ben. Healers are really in the mix, obviously A. Defense that's going to keep them in it. Yeah, I mean bills bills. Bills Bills Colts would actually probably be my.

"I think he could be a useful player, but you know for his draft position. If you're taking a guy top ten, you kind of want to stud not as opposed to a nice role player. Yeah, so the upside case for the secondary is that you get finally? Get Jonathan Doberm- right. WHO LOST HIS SEASON? And then. They added Prince Amukamara. Who is an NFL player? Okay like he can play quarterback. A lot of Damon are net. Their first round draft pick was a bit of a reach at Ohio state. And then you bring Trayvon Mullen back. It's just it's not a strong group. Then like Laura's joyner keep playing in the slot, which is really weird because he was, he was a good safety man in l.. A. I. DON'T Really Play A. By sending college, too, he was like a dynamic safety time. Square peg round hole. Into Mary's Randall. Is You know I'll randall yeah? They kind of really went patrick I'm really curious Abram play that. Guy I know a lot of people were high on is supposed to be a really comfy tone, setter type guy so yeah, I'm really excited to watch him play. The you nailed print straight ahead. He's a player. You can start, you know. He's an NFL. He's an NFL players and Israel lacking big upgrade for them. I'm still surprised. They traded calmly last year. Dude, he was good for use in to the end I mentioned that when we talked about. Him I was surprised, he was banged up his rookie. Year is pretty hurt and but he just yeah I personally I i. he thought he looked the part I thought. That's chick corner right there. I'm still curious about that trade so I love this NFL Lingo. That's creeping tone center look. Great you can't. You can't stop it. Or is out of your mouth. All right I wish somebody would describe insider someday your. But it's more exciting a different tone yeah! Somebody's. So, chargers are like the other three teams I think very hard to predict. And it's usually because of the quarterback position so yet again we start their. Defense Kinda fascinating like they have the potential to be one of the top three or four defenses, in the NFL but there are also a few issues which we'll talk about. But the offense okay so. Last week I went on the. Bill Simmons podcast. And we talked about the CAM signing, and he mentioned two teams that you thought should of signed Cam the bears. Who Talk about next week and the chargers and I said well the that went out the window, the second the chargers decided they were gonNA draft. Justin harbor right because you're not bringing him into that building that you know how NFL teams work so. It's hard for me to gauge this team without knowing. What the plan is with Taylor tyrod, Taylor and Herbert like are they really willing to sit herbert for multiple games or an entire season? Normally I would say heck. No I've seen this movie too many times. The NFL and I know our second. He has like one hundred eighty yard game. The Fan base will revolt. And like Tara Taylor we'll talk about him in a moment, but he does things that drive in events. Such as not taking risks now the variable here is that Anthony Lynn I genuinely believe really likes him. And by the way they were extremely productive together in buffalo years ago four years ago right so. From your perspective and I know you're not inside there. You have no idea how they're approaching it. How do you think is the best way to approach this season from the quarterback position I? Think they just I like in the building. You just have to be honest especially with a quarterback psych. Hey, this is where we sit with you. Guys tyrod. We're expecting you to. Be The starter in Justin. You're learning from him, but I think Ozzy's the best thing if they're saying. Hey, tyrod, we want you to hand over the reins after the season or we this or they just stay in step in day WANNA go. Hey, this open competition, but I think transparency. You gotta treat him like grown men and treating them like bandits helps that out. Kind of helps everyone else fall in line knock on wood, but as far as scheme wise like. I have no idea because Greg was such a big influence on the bills offense. When Taylor's Anthony Win was there. You know and I'm really curious. It's new meeting of the minds with a new quarterback so I have no just as much as you do about how this might come out, but I think there are smart enough to know what he's good at Anthony. was there was there in Buffalo in and knows okay, so he's GonNa Movement throughout which can be expected. You know he's. He's a good athlete. He's got pretty good arm and. Smart enough to operate your offense I actually think just some of the. WEAPONS ARE GONNA take a little bit as offense style kind of changes I think Yeah, so it can now who is top tier route runner breaking guys off and Philip rivers strong him the ball right on time, right in the perfect spot. That's not going to happen as much anymore. There's GonNa be some of it, but it's not going to happen six seven times a game. It might have watched twice game because I don't think tyrod Taylor's dropback. Throw thing right on time. He can do it, but it's not as bread and butter is very much, won't. Yeah or you just want. An end that's leading to. Feel Yeah Yeah. Yeah I. Wish I own. Fantasy because he's going to eat. Actually Tony. Could have a big year, too by the way. I so here's what I think I've thought a lot about tyrod Taylor, who is by the way terrible in Cleveland in verse didn't Play Very Long. I'm convinced he was banged up for some of that so if he looks like he didn't Cleveland Justin playing three. Assuming though that you know this. Anthony Lynn can get something out of him. That approximates what he did when he was head coach. I think he is going to. RIP, so much out of the Ravens played. Be. I mean and by the way Greg Romantic lent read Roman coach with bills in two, thousand, fifteen and seventeen sixteen, and he knows Taylor, who also was with Baltimore before them, but those before, but anyways they have connections. Okay, and then Lynn was. Let's see. He was running backs coach right with Buffalo, and then he was elevated to the intern. So that they are. In Lockstep in my opinion, so I think we're going to see him in pistol a ton as you mentioned, you're going to see a ton of movement throws. You'RE GONNA see a ton of play action. It's funny. Who is good in that offense? That type of offense, just Nuremberg College. Yes exactly I. I don't even think I saw Justin Herman under center in College. Coach three this. kind of seeing you kind of make sense like like all right I see how this comes together. Now yesterday when I was going through this actually now that I'm thinking about the kind of that same kind of thing. Would just a filler? Yeah I think I. Think we'll look Taylor's insanely conservative, and that's what drives people crazy and is part of reason why is at a low interception rate, but coupled with an effective? Defense, which is is, we'll talk about in a second team that can win Games oh, by the way their offense lot better to Traded, for Awesome Sonning, yeah, that's one of the best signs off season I thought and then you got my county coming back center trae turn it right left sides bit of an issue, but. It's huge I think trae turns US slight over Silje overrated. Nationally, but he still a good starter, and they're the guy starting regular last year was like should have been on the field so going from awful two good. That's a huge upgrade. Nine going from awful, a body is is an upgrade so. Speaking awful. This defense was twentieth against the pass last year twenty fifth against the run twenty injustice justice at great but..

"It is very traditional, and the now you throw Henry Rugs into the. and to me like with Derek Carr knowing what we know about him, and his sort of aversion to risks, you, you'd want to see. Henry rugs deployed creative fund ways to generate yards after the catch, but I'm not sure this offense is capable of. Like seeking to run, you know. Are we going to see him on like around and stuff like probably not going to be a lot of lance, and they're going to hope that he catches splits and catch US splits defenders and takes. The House is not going to be the taking the top off. Six hundred post routes I think they're going to ask him to do that in a maybe. Throw it, but that's not. Derek likes to throw anyways and Brad So. It's Kinda a Little Square peg round hole. It's like yes, offense does need the guy that burn it to blazes. Take the top off open everything up, but he got throw it. You know it's great you got. A guy runs six yards every play, but if He's going to have to run so many deep routes to clinical open up the offense. The run game. Going to be immeasurably frustrating. UNCORK IT and by the way I say this all the time. Derek Carr throws a beautiful depot you does. Way It's really annoying when he's in rhythm Heathrow's I mean yeah I mean I was watching the charges name yesterday and he made a couple of moving throw south. Amherst. there. He's got great arm town. You really does, and it's just. It's so funny. It's like he just doesn't use it and it's like. The charge great as he was doing. Quicken play actions and hitting low in breakers like a fenders, and that stuff was coming right out outright on time. It was really impressive. Those really fun to watch. It was kind of like Oh yeah, that's right Derek. Has that arm town? We just never it because he's throwing hitches and slants, and over, or you know crossers and balls of their out over and over or checking down over and over so a lot of lot of flyer routes, four tight ends do. RAISE FANS! You always point to like his. you know they used to air the ball out more. I guess it was twenty. Sixteen was Amari was that. Whatever but Yeah, like at this point. He's been the NFL for what he had lost here so. Three full seasons him. So we kind of know we I mean he's never lost a year he's. Here it. Wasn't. It was week sixteen on Christmas. Yeah, that was a fun. But the the noted, that's thing he is what he is really. Get where you're kind of leading into right. It's you know it's how many games until we're asking them to do that until this is kind of what I think, that's kind of it is what it is like. This is what he is. Maybe that's why Gruden is building this offense like that with I mean they have four legit label tied at. The. Why do you take? Jury duty man like I. Don't another receiver in a third I don't well, so the other receiver I do want to talk about him because they they've got some really fun. Pieces on this offense right like aside from car you had Darren Waller emerges I think one of the five or six best tight ends in the NFL last year. So you know you have him, you have a Lynn. Boden her about and I never. It's it's. Kind of voting. Junior. I think they're gonNA. Use a back. But obviously you can line them up. Well they have. What's the name? A little load man from Clinton? It was actually quite good last year. The Little Olga Rhonda Renfro. And the. Could. Any four, WHO, came Ryan Edwards who you mentioned? Who Does have true ex upside although I think they're hoping tyrel. Williams is no longer. He was really hurt last year. Men that was. That's the excuse me for cars that tyrone. Williams played through injury. They thought they'd have Antonio Brown which okay they didn't. But they, and then as we discussed, have Josh, shakeups is awesome, and then one of the better offense of lines in the NFL low key is in. A great position to succeed. I don't know when they pay Mario to. Seven million people are saying is a short leash for car, but I'm. He's not gonNA play bad enough for. Them and replacing with Marcus Mariota Rookie. Maybe but I don't see that happening and I kind of what you're saying, too. It's like is the pick of rugs like does that fit whether doing and short answer? No I mean fit the quarterback or the scheme that they've liked to do. Maybe they come out this year and they look like out Smith in two thousand seventeen. Awesome. He's chuck it all over the place. You, never know but. I get what you're saying and I thought honey. Ref, Oh, you just said he had a really good games. I think yeah I think I broke them down like he really came on like he was a legit plus player an asset. Wayne. Coach's kid winter. All that as it placed out meshes well with car. Truck group prefers routes under tenure. Arts is actually what I. What I wrote. I'm sorry. I called him an old man. He's just that he felt like in college. She was like Oh my. Are, you still? That's that's not. Why did I just WANNA establish I wasn't because of the appearance. It just felt like you played. A comes in for like four hundred years. How would this little stat? Tyrel Williams I can always liked him with the chargers. He actually ascended the better you play. You actually played pretty well, even though you're saying what he said, he was only one of three players last year to convert fifty percent or more of their targets in the first downs. Really Chris Godwin Calvin. Ridley Entira Williams, those are only. Unlike those players he did not have. Receiver diverting. Defensive attention. Yes, that's pretty wild. So! I actually think this could be a pretty good offense. I find that believable now. Defense is another story. I Don't know man I. Going down this depth chart looking at some of the editions. There's just so many holes I loved the core little signing. Let's start there on a positive note. linebackers been an issue for this team for a while. And obviously at perfect right and then to whitehead. So. They went out and they signed court littleton to be there will and he I think is one of the best cover linebackers in the NFL. Just incredibly under underrated undrafted. Linebacker for the rams. And, then they signed nick, quite quite Hausky, quite caskey shoot. That's a hard one. That's it. That's how the thought right from the barrel. To be there Mike. He's good, he's less. Small sample size. But it no matter what I. Think. It's pretty likely that positions and upgrade is when you start looking like I guess the other parts of the defense will be better because they really couldn't worse than they were last season. I mean his team ranked thirtieth against the past twenty-seven adjusted Sacree, twenty th and pass rush win rate. It's funny like the Khalil. Mack trade is totally defensible defensible based on like the players they drafted and sort of you know what the return I think the value. But it also completely cursed them. Pass rush referred I. Mean It's just. Now Fun thing. The hard Rod Marinelli. Forty thousand bringing that up. Well, let's go. Lover Coach Marinelli well in no, it probably was a big incentive to come to Vegas right is his daughter is a chef year she? You store on the stress. That inside Vegas. Coach his daughter. She opened up a place. Here called the stray gun suburbs in Summerlin. Actually been there a couple of times, but yeah coaches, kids. We're we always bond, but yeah I mean I. Remember now is one of the best the UN coaches that I know of period and they he's going to get the most whatever they do have and obviously some of Palmer players must love him. 'cause collins sign with them. and. Your goods that's. Just good solid signing. That's where they need. They need the need these solid. Disney, the patch it up. Solid because they're going from bad, there's to go bad to solid. They don't eat bad degrade. A marinole is awesome. You know match. Crosby was a nice fund player for them last year, you know. I, don't think he ever be maybe a true elite number. One Guy I'm not many are that's why it's elite, but I I mean that's a fourth round. Pick turning into a really good number. Two Guy is awesome and arden. Arden key is a pretty good rotational guy Rehearses a nice player, too at tackle, you know. He felt because of the heart condition, but you know they have some nice places up front, and then it kind of conversation. After that with the rest of the defense. It's it's GonNa be interesting well. Last year with feral. That was a disappointment for them. Four and a half sacks off eight hits I mean played them. Pretty! If you watch. Most people saw that as a reach when they took him and. I think he could still be like way early obviously..

"You know the cold try to do with Yeah I. DO I love Saturday eight Manning We had Matt Burke in Dhaka Colpepper I. Love when I know I love I. think that really helps. Those guys grow even Derek Carr Rodney, Hudson. I was just about to say. Dare cars, the best center in the NFL in mind or or runny hutto combine yeah. Combined it's like they worked together. Because then they could start speaking the same language earlier as opposed to get in the guy that maybe been with another team for years four and a offense esteem, and also now they're like. Oh, no recall that RON RECALL! RIP here. Okay, you know so just cuts out any fat. Learn it together. which I so I kinda. I've always been partial to that like if I were to. My by team draft quarterback, trying to get a real young center at the same time, the of will end up from Alabama not blinking on his name right now. He's really good, too. Yeah they did with him. They got him fairly early on to and I. I just like that kind of process, so yeah, we'll parcel that Ryan Kelly. I was like West's name would expire. It's really generic name. I what I also think. Defense is probably going to be better. In large part because it's the VIC Fangio's defense, right? But it's also a defense that again there. There were big injuries right with Bradley Losing Bradley Chubb. Like very early in the season as I recall last year now he will be obviously coming off of that Tornado, but you know what it was down near for Von as well. Still one of the better pass rushes in the NFL, I think but. I think it was an interesting year because they finished like about average in most metrics. But you saw like a lot of unheralded guys kind of emerge over the course of the season, so at one of the preseason games I worked with broncos game, and they're all these guys. I had never heard of like I. Dunno Alexander Johnson I. When I was doing my charts for the game, I was like okay. Alexander Johnson shore or just. Okay all right. Not Personnel. Played well! He played totally well, so that was GONNA be my point like yeah like per cell. Alexander Johnson really emerged again isn't surprising because it was like a linebacker God, right? But and you think ok well usually. He has his history of having these premier. Middle Linebackers linebackers, but there were it was just a very unsexy group coming into the season, and they had some injuries as well I. Think Josie, Joel. Probably isn't going to be started I. Don't know this year. It'll be interesting to see how the depth shakes out, but in any case. He got a lot of these guys who? Cream Jackson SORTA cream Jackson. Right like what the heck man I mean. He was a corner in Houston. He was okay he was awesome for Denver last year. Now you've got to play next adjusted. Simmons, who I think is arguably one of the best safety is in the NFL. He'd be tagged him right. He might have a deal by Donald podcast comes out and says you. Know Switch, week. Yes, so bryce Callahan got hurt. They signed DRO- Casey for. Nothing Aga so to me this defense that was average last year, but you saw vic getting a ton out of these unheralded players I wouldn't be surprised if they take another leap forward as some of those guys come back from intellectual. Bradley troubles the. Easy answer that yeah I mean I I. Actually I knew hit a good rookie year I didn't realize the knockers put up this gear. They were a little inflated. I remember that like when you look to the underlying statistics there were. There was a caveat it. I did I I was trying to call, and I was like man. Yeah, twelve sacks, and we don't even talk about that. But I. DO I think you're right I think maybe yet some. Garbage because the second sack, but you know what I mean. But. Yeah, but I mean that him coming back I mean that's. Is An ideal number to pass rusher in an. Casey is I. Mean a really good player, even if he's maybe not the top top top tier. He was for a couple of years I mean. He's still a good starter. They traded what for him like seven seconds. Yeah Harris's really good shelby Harrison I play with him at Wisconsin. Before he transferred. Yes, shelby, who they, but that's the thing shelby in the previous regime, trying to get used as a true three technique, or even a knows a no stack in those tackle men now they kind of pushed him outside to more before I sometimes three five, but the kind of you know they found a skill set that works for him, and what could happen got locked I think I. Think Fangio's like one of those good coaches that Kinda. Just you know knows what players are good at is like. How do you need? Shelley harassed by? The way deflected the most passes of any defensive Lineman last. Week that he didn't get a big. Didn't get your boy cut from the chargers. That blocked the way. WHO's kick? Oh my God I think I am fairly. That sounds right. That sounds right. I'm instantly on-site any NFL defensive player with the girl's name is. You have to be tough to get to that. Guy Be tough. This is like if I was A. GM at like the combine. Yeah I'd be like him him Ashley covering. Won't pick. THOUSAND PERCENT Yes, so there's law story short I. Can absolutely mean look was not good last year, but I could absolutely see this defense with these elite safeties in a very good pass rush rising into the top ten are easily agree. They're built up front there. They built it how you want to be bill. He built. They built the D. Line a legit two studs. NFL Bunch of Nice other pieces I mean that's pretty nice. They've depth with which people kill for and going off of what you said Aj. I mean watching Jalen Ramsey last year I don't think anyone looked good that Jaguars. Early on last year but but but again that's another by cheap. Hopefully, maybe you hit on it and get a good corner about for pretty not a bad price for fourth-rounder. I think they gave up. So you know if you can get a good starting corner for a fourth-round that you're playing with house money I. Think Steam playing with House money. Let's take a few questions from listeners. Guys some are so out there. We'll just have to work a little bit harder to make our summer. Moments happen of course. Light wants to be right there with you by making it easier to chill this summer.

"I'm just in combat. And you know what he just had chummy literally just said with Lsu arm, sorry with chiefs and going five, five, wide or Oregon eligible receivers out and just keeping five-man protection. That's what else use offense. And it's funny how this? Tie In. That's why borough was incredible because he was so smart, able to operate and pick. Your pick where he wants to go and Nice guys up. It's almost like a point guard operating point guard. Not every time is going to pass it to the same guy every time. Sometimes they do. If it's working point, guards can also. Throw down the post. He's GonNa take a shot. And when receiver you've got five receivers out, that's US you. You did so many times with RPO's to and C. H. comes in, and it's just GonNa. Be Like he's GonNa be I'm used to this. I'm used to running twenty routes a game. You know true route true game. It's GonNa. Walk Right in and they also got the Andre Washington from the raiders who who skillset is very similar, and it's it's funny. I think that's. That's what they're of going for their just go, but just all these types I shouldn't con- SCAP acts because I. Don't think are true real true scap anymore, but these kind of guys that can play all three downs, and we don't ask our backs to protect that much solicits create mismatches everywhere, so no matter what mahomes has five mismatch as mismatches as opposed to maybe just to the other creating just as many as possible and. Yeah. It's pretty cool actually. I mean it's like. You know vision mahomes being slightly worse someplace action I think like a man. He's like the best quarterback instead of the first or something. You know whatever, but like hey, guess, what happens when you play man and C. H.. I'm accepting that too is out there. He's you're going to get a linebacker against him. At some point, it's GonNa. Get ugly and I. Think Andy. Reid is salivating. At that possibility, which is a great visual. So, let's talk about those linebackers on these other teams. and. You know who are who are going to be victimized by by this offense. I mean okay. Let you know what I was going to Segue into the raiders 'cause I like the linebackers, but let me ask you this right now. Gun to your head. WHO's the second best team I know? We did this whole preamble in the beginning about how these three teams shake up anyway. Who Do right now is the second best team. I would actually go with the broncos. Okay, let's Talk Broncos not I'm not sure I agree I'm not sure. No I don't like any of these answers. I put you in a horrible position, but I think the Broncos are really interesting I think all these teams are interesting by the way but there. It was a fun forward to look out because there's so many question marks, and there's so many good players on each team. It's not like a bunch of. Where they want Stud. It's like no. They each have four out of yes good. Totally, yes, there's no. There's no I don't want. Call the Jaguars. I feel bad, but these are all interesting teams like we said. The teams, the broncos might be the most fascinating because They have this young quarterback who their fans are very high on I. Get so many tweets talk about drew lock truckload drew lock, so we are going to talk about drew lock. So I think I tweeted. Like a month ago or something? Hey, I'm gonNA. Watch some drew lock. What's his best game and everyone's like? Houston got a little bit of Detroit so I watched both. I throw the chiefs game. that. Was that was the? Mahomes Ragweed I. Think I had and that was thrown into snow, and that was that was ever. Impressive he's just throwing a wide open guys I'm like okay. Then watch the other side and watched the rookie quarterback. They're on the same. Appreciation okay so. So so, let me tell you. The things I liked about drew lock. He's very athletic. I liked the way he moved I. Think and I think we talk about this new broncos offense because they have a new coordinator in charmer. I. That is something that I think hope. Believe should factor very strongly to their offense. I think he's not a terrible decision maker. Actually he didn't do to me to my eye. He didn't do that. Many boneheaded things. I think probably should've been picked off a few more times than he was not in Texas game but. He's not an idiot. He and I and I think that's because come out of college. That was one of the things on him. Well, the decision making in. So I thought now look he didn't. You didn't see seem like going through progressions like I. Don't think saw him going off of this I read very often, but he also wasn't like. Do you make many horrible throws into traffic? The kind of things that are going to get killed. He's got a nice arm especially now. He didn't use it a lot. Last year, he didn't I think. Gosh I haven't seen with. Yeah, so okay so so! Six point nine ten air yards per town, which is the seventh lowest in the NFL? He was nine thousand expected completion. twenty-seventh is in completion. Percentage about expectation basically means he's running remedial offense. So. Those were the things I liked. Basically I feel like we didn't really learn a ton because he played such horrendous I. The Texas game is like. It's crazy. My biggest takeaway from that Broncos, fans for you get upset is that no fan is awesome. I feel like I was running early in the year. And, it was mean. But his name with can't so it just sets up some jokes I'm not sorry for. What he also was on my team. I know I know it's not my fault, but he was a boost in those final few games, so you're the better quarterback evaluator. Tell me what you got out of watching through I, mean they're. Kind of like read my notes, basically it. was you know with lock it was. I think. That's what a lot he just needs wraps. It was so much of it. He needs a lot more development than I think. Even broncos Fans WanNa tell themselves I think yeah I. Don't think he's Dahmer anything like you were saying. I think is just mental caucus slow at this moment, so we I shouldn't call people smarter whatever I just. I I, didn't think he was making terrible decisions. Complete agreement with you I I was I'm with. He's probably a very young man. They're all very know exactly. Yeah, no one is. But yet, he I just I really need to see. Stop come open and I think there's just a lot of these. NFL concepts I'm going through puberty if my my voice cracking. He goes through a lot of these newer plays. It seems like he knew one route on that play, was he? Would just Baba call the play and was like okay I think I have a go route on the outside here. I'm throwing it because they're times. He's looking at a route that there's no way. The coach told him to look at that right. I mean just no way I don't even need to know the exact being that meeting. Room I. could just I just know so? It's Kinda one of those things where I think his knees time he just needs wraps and it just, and that's why I can't make a definitive statement on him because he doesn't have nice things. That I'm not like Oh. Yes, shot. He and he's got an arm. Yeah, yeah, then and when he does know the play like I made the joke. They run spacing the past ten times a game is. is, because it's probably a play that he knows, and so the the the corner last year was trying to. You know always like feed him a little bit and get him gone a little bit, but it's Kinda one of those things where it's like i. just think he just needs a lot I think it's going to be another year before it may take a leap, and I'm or a half year I should say it might be ugly that first four or five weeks before he got new system. Yeah, to which is challenging because. So you know his prior coordinator was Rick Skin Gorilla, which was cow Shanahan influenced you know, play action heavy offense. Lot of bootlegs. There there's a lot of booting built into it, but to my..

"Goes back to the Russ Orchestra thing right like is it better to have an Ol- world defensive tackle F-, or two above average core, and that's a false choice. Right like sometimes when we criticise like a contract I'm Chris I'm like well. It could take that money and have to average Cornwell then you gotta find those above average quarterbacks. Scout them yeah so. Again it's your question is not. A or B plus speed. It's a sure thing versus I risk which is always. Guy Answered it out from there. I think it's some of the NBA mindset of just take the. Ideal, you have death, but it's I think if you have a star, you know. His personality is in House Pam. Make him happy. You WanNa, show your good players Hey. Guys we want you to be chief for twelve years for fifteen years and I think that's more of a chemistry thing to, and but also like you just said with the corners. It's hard to find good corners, and I think they having a a game changer a game record as some people call it at each level of the defense is huge, so they have three game records. True Gamers Chris Johns. Johns Frank. Clark and honey Badger and I think for them. They're just going with okay brilliant as solid starter. Once we get him back, we'll hold water. Probably they're probably GONNA BE PRETTY CRAZY first couple of weeks. If if with ruin out, but I think to them, they're more just like hey. We have three stars. Get him get him opportunities to make plays and patch up everything else then scheme. And we and we have a quarterback. who kind of makes all this irrelevant Just let the just. Keep it under thirty all. About that quarterback, like I said, do contracts, it's like it's a team friendly contract. It's frigging foreigner fifty million dollars at least like. Figured out what guaranteed mechanisms means it basically means they can't cut them so. The the scary thing about Mahomes, I've I've just been kind of thinking about like okay. What is there to say about him? The scary thing about there's a lot of scary things about him. Obviously but I. Think one of the scary things about him is that he was clearly playing hurt last year. And that's fricking insane. Obviously, he was held. But. Like it's just told. US that. You know he can be so much better outside the pocket next year so much better at extending place so much better on the Rani's already the best. Throw around the run and football right now. Yeah, and I think. There's your thing where he's like worse on play action the dummies and I talk about. Why is that from a quarterback perspective? Tried it try to explain that. His mahomes is so well first off. Probably just reps from what he's done in college. High School Plano Texas. Texas Tech high. School in Texas in College. But. I think some of it is. He likes to see everything, and he's such a quick triggerman that he wants everything in front of them. He wants a snap in manipulate, but this is get the ball out and do something with drop I think with the play action stuff, a lot of play actors stuff, not old eligible are out, Guy, staying protect. Man Sometimes if it's under center and you're doing play action. Turn it back to it I. think it takes away. Some of his out should take away. You don't really take away much from. But IF HE turns his back to it. I think some of it is more of okay why it's really hard for a quarterback to just stand there and time and time in timeout you go five finally protection five eligible out incomplete balls one after another mahomes makes it look so easy. We just keep going why every offense to that. Why is every offense? Why don't they have five five minutes same protection? It's because they can't Patrick Mahomes as the triggerman so I think play like you really need the play action stuff, 'cause he does everything else so well and so. So. It might not be as something that he can't do or he's not. He's limited that so rather than just the whole argument about him, turning his back to the defense and everything mahomes freak, so I'm sure he handles that fine. I think it's more which is lean into stuff were ridiculous. Good at knowing can stop anyways. There's no need to manufacturing thing like other than other than the Lincoln play. You know the famous leaks that we all Bob showing twitter. 'cause we know the name of it, so we all get really excited. with you know also because I. Work with a carrying. L. Lsu ran against Florida and they hit. The guy fell off into those like it's one. It's like one of one of one hundred selling of a hard time. So like so like as yeah, those are shop, wiser manufacturer shop place, but you don't need a manufacturer, anything but MAHOMES UNLESS! You get into a team that maybe they do have figured out that day. Not everyone has their fastball or as a coach scheme, wise or a player, and maybe that's when they are okay. We're getting. Our butts kicked Stanford protect, but we still need to get. Charts can't think doc so I think it's more mahomes a show good at the hard part. They're just screw. We don't need a play action. No West, we just. Really like this concept this week we'll get five five outlet mahomes interesting work. You know I i. think that's their thinking. Right? I mean this is like. That's like the issue with criticisms criticisms of him like. Bales little quickly sometimes right, he could move a little bit more inside the pocket. Yeah, but when he bails, he liked turns. Chicken you know chicken salad so I'm really going to criticize him for like not having subtle pocket full four drew brees, or whatever like this is like no stupid. All this. We can just skip that. A the Edwards layer thing is interesting I do. WanNa talk about that with you because. For those who have forgotten already I, don't blame you. It feels like another lifetime. The chiefs draft running back I. After. We spent the entire offseason praising them for being the past happiest team in the analytic starling of the NFL. And you can see. Setting aside the question of woke devalued been gotten us. Maybe maybe quarterback. He's going to be a monster in this offense right like both, both by the way both things can be true. I think yeah and I think he also is going to be a monster in a way that makes life even easier for Patrick, mahomes like there's this concern, nate. Because the team spent such a high draft. Pick on him. They're going to be pressure. They're gonNA feel pressure to run the ball. I Trust Andy Reid enough. That he's not going to do that. and Rather I think he's just going to use them as match up nightmare, I mean when you already have tyreek Hill and Travis Kelsey on the board. Defenses are doing everything they can to take one of them out the throw in this running back who runs routes like a wide receiver and your eft right so to me it just. It creates so match just so many problems for defenses and you know you gives you. Those like smaller chunk plays that I think sometimes she's offense has been lacking.

"Yeah, because the Kennel. And admit a schwartz will be up and ultimately what you're looking at is a real stars in scrubs roster of the cowboys. Gosh this deal? Dak Prescott Mike. DAX contract might come out for his podcast so if it does. Here's an overarching statement. Good job. But. It's a very stars in scrubs Z. Roster. Jones interesting because he's like undeniably good like nobody disputes the fact that he's one of probably the best. Three to four interior defensive linemen, the NFL is does not bold, right. That's pretty widely. I wrote this last night. And I mean this is before the contract. came out I, said. Chris the best tackle, not name Aaron Donald. Yeah, if for you yeah! Okay so I think the question is okay, so you're already paying Clark a ton of money. And then you've got the mahomes contract so I guess to me the question is in. It's not as Chris Jones good, we know he's good. Obviously mostly is a pass rusher but. Is that you wanNA spend your money. You know what I mean, 'cause they're. They're going to have to cheat `bout in the secondary going forward and I guess linebacker as well which they kind of punted on generally. mean she's basically just don't care about run defense, which is pretty cool. Good leaning. So I guess yeah, they're leaning. They're fully leaning into. They're saying we are going to defend the pass. Last year. They finished six against pass twenty, nine th against Iran. Interestingly, you know pass rush, win rate, and some of the various pass rushing. Statistics weren't super impressive, but they were effective when it counted like. Do you agree with this decision from a broader team building standpoint? Yeah, absolutely we we as a whole just football journal. We always think pass rushers is the end outside linebacker edges. You know and Chris. Is that disruptive Interior Guy Not just getting sacked, also t.f els. He's actually really good at all down. which I always think is, it's a dooney knows. Yup, it's a it's a a I. I took it from a old basketball blog. Inches called do shit stats. I mean it's nothing fancy, but it's not just. It's not a sacks and everything that up. It's everything that's up. Guy Might only have eight sacks, but he might have fourteen t.f like five balls batted down like you know it's. It's wide JJ, Watt. College was so dynamic. Yeah, he is that numbers weren't great, but if you look at everything else, it was like Oh. Wow, this guy's pretty incredible. I think sometimes we hung up just on Sax and just on Edge Guys Chris Jones gets the sex, but he also does everything else, and it just comes from the inside which I actually think. It's harder to walk. You can slide the center over there. There are ways to avoid that with how you show the pressure and everything it yes, easier to get a guy out one because you can't help him, so it's actually kind of funny. It's so hard to find a true disruptive, three technique or Interior Guy Christians Johns plays everywhere, but I think it's well worth it because it is, that is harder to block first off. That's a unique talent skill. Set that you have to face. Face I think a lot of teams have one or two good edge guys, but not a ton of teams have a disruptive. Interior Guy so I think they found the money, but at five pay him what he wants. That is a guy you built around, because at no matter what you have that one core guy and your line and they have Frank Clark as well. Who's also very good, so I mean. I think right now this next three or window. It's great. Setup an at the library I'm just going to branch off, but like they drafted a the drafted a willygate junior in the second round at Linebacker, in which is so funny, because like chiefs I've inhaled. Analytics Guy is like the analytic starling in a draft running back in an awful linebacker in the first two routes, which just killed me. Yeah but his fun prospect. He's like rangy dynamic that he he's a more above a running typing a coverage type again. They're leaning into it. They don't need the thumper. They want they know. The Andy Reid is first teen I fifteen twenty plays. And they're all built on getting an early lead. It's blitz on basically not bullets like a Defense Boyd's but but supposing defenses with their offense with their scripted plays jump out to a lead in making play. Catch up the rest of the game. They leaning fully leaning into it, and it's just funny with spags, and he second half the year once I think he got a real feel for what he had, and they also got the the tackle off street. I'm blanking narrowed down. Oh Mike. Mike Banal they signed. Mike Panel Yeah. They also have a reclamation project in Taco Charlton. Which is another? Okay? Like one of those like there's a there's a whole list of guys were like when you look at like the P. Click. Oh. He's on this team now. I totally missed that entire. Charleston's definitely like in the they. They're attempting to buy cheap and hit a home. Run hit a double with a guy and then and. That's what they're going to try and do with.

"One of the hosts thinks the phrase tap mahomes foams is what happens to pops when they're good boys. That's Lenny. Get it pet mahomes I'm times and I am delighted to be joined by a second time guests, the outpour of demand. The cries from the streets I couldn't walk outside without people saying. When are you going to have an eight Thais on? When are you gonNA, have nate back and I said get away from me your warning. You know to close. I'm wearing a mask. You may have said something else NATO's welcome back to the show. For having me, I didn't know three tweets as an outpour. Three tweets two of them for family members. Probably, it was probably the the outcry that you got. I did see her dad's tweet and I appreciated it. My Dad's tweet. He's talking crap like. Hits in some. for? For. Those who don't know actually nate. Your background is actually pretty pertinent to this episode. Given that we are talking about the raiders who you worked for what year was that? She doesn't sixteen two thousand seventeen all right. How many times did you write? Oakland instead of Las Vegas while preparing for this I, cop out wrote Raiders so division is a killer between them and the chargers. It is not it's not fun. We'll go. Whilst West says reclaimed its title for the most two-word City names and and Alan Vision, so it used to be la raiders India charters can say chiefs Denver Broncos and now they took that title back once. The raiders moved to Vegas. So. This is the kind of analysis that made people clamoring to have you come back to the show, so we are talking about the AFC west. This Week and As always I'm Kinda Kinda? Sum Up my overarching perceptions before we get into the teams and. I think before I. Did this exercise? I always say exercise which I feel like makes it sound way more intense and rigorous than it actually is for me, but. Before. I started looking into these teams and thinking through what they look like this year. How much they've evolved I think I've felt the division was better. I mean. or at least I thought it was. Maybe potentially. COUPLE OF WILDCARD I duNno at least one wildcard team, which is totally definitely possible, but my new feeling is that after the chiefs, the other three teams could really finish any order which I tweeted, I. Don't think they all have strengths and weaknesses and I. Don't think any of them is markedly better than the other I completely agree with that like going through each one as soon as I started to like a team. It kind of started going. Okay well this, they don't have this. They don't have this well. This is a big question mark. That's another question mark, and then say oh. I like that piece, but it's like. Does that really fit? You know so mean just like every team. It's question marks everywhere, but I completely complete agreement with you there. It's like a wide range of outcomes to I could see any of those three teams going ten at six and three of them going forward twelve. You know it's like they're. On injuries depending on if a guy breaks out, depending on the guidance takes another mini leap. I mean there's there's a lot of variables with the other three quote unquote. Actually like last week when dominated the NFC west, we ultimately put them in the same order. There's still some various I think. The cardinals could finish with a wide variety of records for example, but we felt pretty strongly about the order I. Really Don't know what order you'd put these teams. You're right. It's so dependent on the quarterback situation. For Two of the teams I think the raiders defense is ton of question marks which we'll get to, but we are starting with the reigning Super Bowl Champs because they're in the news. And because while I was looking at the death, sharks chart while while the depth chart I was just struck by the fact that Bishop Bruin Bruin speaks are both on this team which I think of the Shenanigans. Berlin anytime. Someone said Bruins speaks name. I'd like not now. I'm busy. I'm sure that's what they get up to I'm sure NFL players. Puns in word. It's like one of those. What does that jeopardy category four just? Yeah that is, that's perfect, or there's a show ice on game. Show network called chain reaction, and that that game was amazing, so they'll give you the first word in the last word, and then you decided. Yeah, you gotta to go. One by John I used to watch every day four, three, hundred thirty, but. It was Yes incredible, incredible Bruin Speak Speak Evil Yada Yada. Each word would go buy one somewhere. Someone at ESPN is listening and thinking about the nfl live and just heard me say that in with your, why do we do? So the news is not that although it is to be, the news is well the latest news we didn't. Fox didn't really get into the MAHOMES contract too much. Because from a perspective, I didn't think there was a lot to talk about, but he did. Sign Chris Jones to a four year, which was you know? Enabled by the mahomes contract to a four year deal worth up to eighty four million dollars eighty-five million dollars. Tomato tomato so I thought. Perhaps we should start by talking about the defense, and what this means now I think there's. Interesting roster construction ramifications. They still Kelsey. As year left I believe. And many the issue I think it's actually yeah. I twenty out drinking. I actually did the. Only reason I do that was because I looked it up the other day. Someone tweeted about it like they should start negotiating. A bill. Bardwell is like they start renegotiating Kelsey next or something of that sort of the kettle..

"Cam Newton Cam. Newton's in a unique position because I think cam. Newton is certainly a starter in this league. I think teams view him as a star in this league and I think there's no rush so I think what you're going to see is teams that have question marks at the quarterback position, or maybe trying to play a rookie or a young player that will go through camp and I think you're GonNa wait for an either an injury to happen. Mike and Cam Newton will be signed as a starter or waiting for the failure of a young quarterback. Cam Newton. We'll be signed as a starter so I. Don't think Cam Newton I. think is just biding his time until he gets the right situation to come into an actually, you know and actually play. So he gets the opportunity to be a starter so and I think that's I think that's probably the right way for Cam Newton to play because you know somebody's getting hurt or somebody's not going to perform well, and then he'll roll win as the kind of quote unquote. Knight, in Shining Armor and takeover. Okay, so some more questions Let's see Here's one from Thomas. Can the broncos really tell what they have? And how much luck has grown if the line? Go South. Well. I think I think they'll be able to see how. The maturation how he has simulates another offense how good he is throwing the ball on time, and all those things I think they'll be opportunities to see what they have They'll know if they can't perform or they're not scoring a lot and they're giving up. You know three or four pressures in three or four sacks a game. They'll know that that's you know contributing to a lack of production so to. To speak so yeah, I think they'll be able to learn a lot if that offense of line doesn't perform, so there's a lot to look at right now because you're coming into the situation with a bus, young players on the outside that you're counting on being good, you're you're? There's a lot of different things that are happening right now. So that's what you're looking at all right? Here's one from Oni. With what is happening around the world with this pandemic, which team is most affected with the social distancing in having to do everything over Webcam. Well I think they're all I think. They're all affected pretty equally. I just I. Don't know which team is the most affected. Mike, but I just know this. If you have continuity and coaching, and you have continuity and players and you, you're coming back with a system that guys have contributed like. The chiefs are the Chiesa bringing back essentially their whole offense like they have a decided advantage. It's the teams that have new coaches and a new quarterback in a you know a bunch of new players that they're counting on. Those are the teams. which teams out all add onto onis question, which which is set back the most kind of prioritize it? It's the one with the new head coach, the one with a new coordinator, especially offense, coordinator, or the one with A. Young untested quarterback. I think it's I think young untested quarterback is going to be like is going to be hard because you need this opportunity to be together. So I think that's really hard. You can't get that over zoom meetings for crying out loud. Let's give it to a oni there. Okay, we'll go with ONI Thank you.

Launchers been trying to connect with the show launched a man. What is happening? Hey, how you guys doing today doing okay. The broncos are in the national spotlight. Because of guy you here on this station every day. Colin cowherd. First off, are we that sold on drew, lock. In a I'm I'm I'm excited for him to see what he does.

He was with the Broncos Paul Kirk, and then he took the job with shoe and I have some insights. Scoops there about about that relationship to. It was very unique some some I opening stuff.

I have the broncos unfortunately losing to the chiefs twice I think the chiefs are going to be like a thirteen win team I'll go through their schedule a little bit later on I liked the broncos get back in the playoffs, but I don't have them being a superior team, they're not. They're good. Their schedules going to allow them to win eleven games, but that by no means. I'm not going to give them. You know a deep pass into the playoffs at least this stage I'd say. Maybe. Lots of what's for lunch today, man? I had I had to sell it and some risk.

"At call today talk about pre planning. It truly is an awesome gift that is mosier funeral and cremation service power play sports poll question how we feel about drew lock. Is he the franchise quarterback you today the ninth day of June because. We always get the whole against to answer this, and it's the easy way out. Stop taking these email well. We'll know more after this season. No we're asking today. We're asking you today on the Ninth Day of June, the prediction game. Is He gonNa be the Guy Do. You think that when it's all, said and done seven five seven ten years down the road we go back and say drew lock was our quarterback. He was sensational. He brought us to the playoffs. Maybe even helped. The broncos get a ring. Get that Fourth Fifth Super Bowl title. Or is right now. If you had to predict, you say to locks, he was the second round guy, and maybe he. Maybe he does okay for five years, but he's GonNa prove that he's just kind of okay, and the broncos will be in the market. For. A quarterback in five four five years. Because they're kind of like A. More of a five hundred team. Now. You look at. How did last year? Dating back to I, mean really December. That was his month. In those five games, he went four and one against the chargers. He was six. His completion completion percentage was really look that game against Houston and Detroit I mean eighty-one percent completion percentage, seventy six percent completion percentage against Detroit. In Five Games, he threw seven touchdowns and three interceptions. He was sacked five times. Here's rating was an eighty nine point seven. qbr Forty eight point two. Overall. Pretty solid numbers I mean we can sit here all day and say well. It was against the chargers. It was against the lines. It was against the raiders well. He's got to play the raiders twice next year. He's got to play the chargers twice next year. So based on drew lock's career against those two teams. There's four wins right there. which I do have the broncos winning now I'm just saying you can sit here all day and said that the last five games were easy save for the chiefs game. Okay well I. I think this neck. I think the schedule for the broncos. Is GonNa look a lot like those last five games. Going to have a couple of tough games, they're here and they're five of them. To be exact and I think the Broncos are going to be better than most of a lot of these teams I. Don't think I think. I think I have them. Do I have them beating one playoff team? Have them beating Buffalo Colfax? I have them. And I think that's it I think that that's the biggest win. I have I think for the broncos because the rest of the teams I. I don't have unbeaten steelers I. Don't think they're going to beat Tampa Bay. My wrong on that or do I. Have Losing that game. You haven't losing Tampa Bay I have losing Tampa do have them losing to Buffalo. That's correct. Yes, okay I do. I do you because I thought we were backwards. That's right. You have lost a Casey lost to Tampa. Both losses to Casey lost the Pittsburgh loss to Tampa. Where's some other loss in their? Orleans. Yeah. I still feel good about it those. The rest of the way through like I, said Tennessee's is a playoff team from last year and a lot of you're saying well. Their schedule is actually pretty difficult. I think it was like sixteenth fifteenth. Bright there in the middle, maybe even fourteenth. But, but you're assuming the titans are a playoff team Ryan Tannehill, not starting quarterback for the dolphins anymore for a reason, the fact of the titans re upped their very confusing to me, so no I don't think. This lasts. For Tennessee. But The schedule is going to help drew lock. It's it is and my biggest concern right now is too much too fast for this offense. Now most a lot of people say conventional wisdom, the more weapons you throw it a quarterback. The battery is going to do. That's not always the case I mean. In fact, that's rarely the case. Because when you have so many different options, you're going to be I mean this. This offense could be very complex. That's my biggest concern, however, I think defensively. And with the running back on this team with Melva Gordon and Philip Lindsey I think you're going to do enough to mask any early errors or any early issues with drew lock. Them starting at the gates like one one and two I think. So I mean it's not like I have this team rolling right through to begin the season. It'll be kind of. They're going to have to Kinda. Baby drew lock along. I hope that's the plan anyway. Again I would have liked to see. Denver filled up on the defensive end. More Jerry Judy was fine, but second round. That's my biggest issue is always go back to the second round. You know you had a lot of good corners. You COULDA went with in that second round. You COULDA went with a couple of safety there Christian folding. You COULDA went with him. or at the the DVD slash safety there. You could have done that side of it. I I liked that move But you didn't and that's my. That's one of my biggest issues with the draft that all being said. Excited to see Jerry Judy in court Sun Cagey Handler. I mean they're not bad. It's not going to be a bad thing necessarily. I you just gotTa hope that a young offense led by a young quarterback can lead a defense that you kinda just had a wash. You just kind of washed it this year. Like Brennan Casey. Great Move Steel for the Broncos no question about it. You you, you essentially lose. Derek Wolfe and you bring him. WHO's better? They've probably upgraded there. You may be downgraded with the quarterback position though from Chris Harris Stage boy, you downgraded there, so I'm going to call it a wash. You didn't do much. To help your defense out. And make them go from. Good to great, so Denver will be a top ten defense. No question about it. Top Five. Not this year. I don't I don't see it. I mean vons not exactly spring chicken anymore? I still believe in the guy still think.
"drew lock" Discussed on The Hull Show ? 1310 KFKA
"Colefax worse drew lock. What's he up to drew? Lock is working hard staying sharp during the lockdown. But before everything went down he was visiting to. He was visiting in Missouri staying with his parents hanging out and then everything hits so he just stood stood still. He stated his Parents House. It's just a funny headline because it's a Broncos. Drew Lock working hard to stay sharp during lockdown at Parents House. He's he's young. He is young man so of course he's visiting he stay in there but he's been hunkered down at his parents house and it's actually kind of kept him. I Dunno somewhat ready. He said you know what I'm around my parents. It's great where we're connecting and everything's awesome there but I'm not really thinking of the pressures necessarily. I'm just taking that time to to continue to learn to continue to grow and study up on. What's needed for this offense going forward? And that's that's the tough thing I mean. We've we've talked about this a lot. It always certainly giving drew. Lock the keys to this car keys this Lamborghini and he's giving them a lot of weapons and you got the new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. There's going to be a lot for drew. Lock to learn. So there's there's a part of me that looks at and says man. All the pressure is on drew. Lock because of the weapons. Because of what's expected of this offense now but there's also a sense of you gotta give them a little bit of a break. You know. Aaron Rodgers and Philip Rivers even Philip rivers learning new offense you. Those guys are veterans. They've been doing it for a long time. Locks only played five games so the tough part is when you put the we are going to put pressure on him. He can't be terrible you know. He can't even be below average she has to be average least But the tough part for him is the fact that he's young. And this goes for any quarterback this goes for any rookie or this goes for any guy that just started last year was just starting to get their feet underneath them in this league. That is going to be tough but especially a guy in drew lock where you're placing your offensive coordinator. You Bring Pat Shurmur. You have a lot of new weapons which sounds great on paper. But I'm still curious as to how this is all going to work out. You have a lot a lot of Saul tight ends now at least again on that proverbial paper. You have guys that should pack a little bit of a punch on the tight inside of it. You went and got. Melvin Gordon. You like what? Melvin Gordon is going to bring to this team but again I'm curious. How does that all work do you do? Do you look at it and say. Hey we're we're going to. We're going to add so many different bells and whistles this offense. You're never going to know where we're coming from. We might have to back set. We might have a tight to back set with two tight ends and then one wide receiver. We may have no wide receivers receiver again. You bring in a lot of tight ends. You know you have no a fan you picked one up and you picked up in the in the off season and then you drafted one so that to me says yeah we kind of like the tight end game here you picked you picked okay web on in the fourth round which is a kind of guy that I think. He's not that doesn't mean he's going to be an instant producer next year right. It just means he's going to be a nice add on to what we already have. With Noah Fan. So is it going to be? Are we going to see some heavy sets tight ends and running backs? Then you have Sutton and Jerry Judy and K J handler and it may be tyrod Cleveland seventh but still wide receiver you can convince certainly is going to see three or four wide receiver sets in there as well so again. I am pumped up. I think it's going to be fun. I Won't lie to you though. I'm definitely looking at it saying maybe. There's a reason to reserve your expectation of the Broncos scoring twenty seven points per game twenty twenty three points per game in in theory. That's GONNA work out but game one. Who's game one going to be against? We don't know yet. That's why you gotTa Watch. The three hour in fell schedule special tomorrow night. Cove exciting to watch the depart tonight. So you can figure out by watching a three hour special. What's going to be available three hours later? Just by googling it without the excitement. It's true you sometimes. I guess you do WanNa see here. Some of the the specialists talk about the bachelor ups and stuff but I mean I could go look up the plotline for the departed right now and that's true you can look. You could look at all the decent point saying you. You could go. Google all of it really. I would've last year. I'm not a big. Nfl Schedule Release Guy. Because you just get the schedule and then you piece it together as you go but yes tomorrow night. I will be watching that. I haven't watched one in a while. Now I've I've I'd say you know. Ever since they start. I think it was a one hour special. It started and then they started increasing. Its too and this year. You're like we're starving man. We need to do a lot more in this. You throw out three three hours for sure. So that's coming up tomorrow night. That'll be interesting. Our power to play sports. Poll question of the day was more of a nuggets. We talked a little nuggets last two nights or to last two days. Something Airshow night show is a call. Yokich true superstar and I'm GonNa give you my finishing thoughts on that when we come back forty seven minutes.
Denver Broncos build around Drew Lock in the NFL draft
"Drew lock and the Denver Broncos yet I mean there is arguably nobody that benefited more from the first two days of the draft and drew. Lock you a guy like Jerry Judy. In the first round. Who is probably the best route runner in this class? You know where he's going to be at all times he's incredibly reliable and then you can change a handler in the second round. He's a guy that's got a ton of speed you know he's going to be able to get open underneath all these other guys taking targets downfield. I mean this defenses are going to have to really respect what they can do passing the football. This is a team that you cannot stack the box. You're GONNA have to spread it out a little bit and that's that's GONNA lead to more opportunities for all of these guys that they drafted and then they got Lloyd cushenberry a little bit later and I thought that was pretty good value to With where they took in so I thought it was an overall good day for drew lot. That's why I think it's pretty safe to say he was. One of the winners
John Elway: 'Drew is the guy we are looking to'
"The Broncos heading into the upcoming season without a question a quarterback it's the first time that's been settled in some time GM John Elway spoke from the NFL combine about the quarterback drew lock working through the way that you know drew finished in a finished form one and I think that where we sit right now there's no question drew is the you know the guy that that we're looking to win so obviously want to be able to improve as a football team Broncos have nine picks and that upcoming NFL draft pictures to see what direction they go with the
Denver Broncos miss injured fullback Andy Janovich
"Edger Mason from the D. M. V. are the D. M. V. R. dot com wrote up a little bit about the struggles in the run game now it's no secret Benjamin that the Broncos miss sandy Janet **** they must channel they love genau when the general said to be all right they had twenty two of them now the numbers you you've got over this we got over those balls very quickly refresh everybody's memory about how good they are with channel first without Janel the Broncos averaging four point four yards per carry and one first down every five attempts when Janet was playing in the seven games in there without him the ones he's missed due to injury the average only three point eight yards per carry and their first down comes every five point five attempts to pretty big jet drop right we we talk about what the league average would you if you want to be a a good running team you want to average on league average of four point four in a box right right yeah and it's you know with with this team it it really is designed to run especially these running backs designed to run behind a row of a full back fill Lynsey if what he does is fine so small creases in when you get a gentle clear the way get an extra seal blockages makes such a difference so I he is sorely missed with what they do I like ager back as a receiving guy back feel but I haven't really been overly impressed with Lee blocking and yell a time you gotta you gotta soul run offense with it with a greatly Boker like Chad it you know you really miss him when he's out yeah I'm with Andrew back we we both like him as a receiver his route running all that and maybe he's gonna make a little bit easier for the Broncos to make some decisions are tied into the offseason as they've got did your fireman contract they have to deal with they have decision at the Macon Jake bites I mean he's still a rookie deal but maybe there's enough energy back to the they moved on in that direction same thing with the food the galley who's been okay for a me again for like a fifth round pick he's been what you sort of expect but he hasn't taken any huge leaps forward and maybe you still drafted other tight end you stay young in that room well yet you still got Austin for but after the training camp Darling who was was on injured reserve so you you've got some bodies back there tight and all the sudden you know you got too many bodies and not enough roster spots it's gonna be interesting to see next year how that shakes out I'm completely with you did you realize Benjamin and I didn't realize and I don't know if you saw this on our guy Andrews article but when the Broncos since two thousand sixteen when the Broncos rush for at least a hundred yards the average for a half per Kerry and they try they run the ball is twenty times their ten six Congo's committing to running get a hundred yards at least a hundred yards for have yards per carry which is an insane by any stretch and they have at least twenty attempts there ten six they are twenty one and thirty one when they don't meet those standards what is that yeah it tells me to some pretty definitive benchmark so what this offense needs to be where it needs to be ordered be successful I think this is a pretty pretty clear indicators I mean it seems that that way but honestly when it comes to the the running game it's it's a little bit of a tough thing because you you say well I want you to to run the ball let's just say they run run the ball twenty times in this game no matter what well the the brokers have I've kind of made a point of trying to take what the defense is giving them and they'll maybe maybe check out of things and they also seem to remember what happened in the Chargers game the second half when the Broncos opted to run the ball a lot in the fans kind of got a little restless about gridlock not throwing it well yeah I those fans who showed up for that game in the cold were there to see drew lock throw and I think that's that's kind of a part of that but you know they want to go conservative they didn't want to expose him I get it it makes life said I wish they would have done some more things with maybe throwing on first down to kind of keep the defense off balance but you know I overall that that game plan going could several like that which is to protect young quarterback I'd like to see them you know we talk about your lock and I think he's gonna get his of X. two games but I'd like to really see them right the run game I'd like to see some more outside zone I was really disappointed at the Broncos didn't seem to run much outside so to give kids a city in a game where people struggle with footing eight it why not string the run to the edge where Phil lives you can keep reading looking for that cut back lay that will creased as it through and and get you some yardage they just didn't do it and I understood some that's a function of get behind you know and and I have got to throw the ball but sometimes you gotta create those opportunities and you know I was a little disappointed that well really with this season the Broncos haven't gone as much outside so as I
"drew lock" Discussed on The Stinkin' Truth with Mark Schlereth
"Act that. Here's here's my take and I haven't heard anybody talk about this They're sick of. He's he's a good player. He does a lot of things. Well how many times have I played with the flu. How many times my teammates played with the flu? Hell go oh back. Through the Archives of of Sports in general we praise Michael Jordan. The flu game. It's like a whole documentary. The A flu games a documentary like you. You get your players away from team like I had flu really bad. I think we're playing in We're playing The lions I was with in wash it had a really bad like really really sick. Came in for meeting eating Saturday night in meetings and And I think we're playing them in the NFC championship game came Saturday. Night meetings got IV's just laden training room got put a bunch antibiotics emmy bunch of medicine right got a bunch of IV's missed. All their Saturday meetings then went to went to to the hotel Moun- room. I told me not to come to the meeting since I was so sick. No meanings none of that. Got Up the next morning. I want to the stadium and played. beat the did you still feel like as bad song morning as you felt Saturday night still felt I didn't feel as bad but I still was really really sick. But in the dispensing justice and we won that game like forty five to ten. You know to go to the Super Bowl like how many guys I was at that game. Were you at the covered that game you did. I know that the hero ISM. Yeah that was going on. I doubt on that field that I was just. It's it's one aware of. It's what I do I mean but not I'm just telling you the story. I know dozens it happens. It happens every week week every week. There's somebody sick so the fact that you would send him home like you'd send him home on Friday and go. Hey you're not we're already ruling you out for Sunday. That's a tell us that. Then that just say we don't really really want you around here anymore. You're just like you may not have done anything to be a distraction but you should only haven't ah elevated elevated rails play right not a force multiplier. Yeah from A- from a cultural standpoint and then you and then you have the I mean just the Paul's that dude must just have like that episode of South Park when they were willing the guys balls around the will burrow was. Yeah because you're getting. Oh I know what it was but they purposely gave themselves to stick your cancer the answer to they get marijuana so they get a prescription for marijuana. I think is what the the the whole premise of the show was. South Park is ridiculous. But Reza's randy was randy wheel nuts around in a wheelbarrow. That's the kind of nut sack. You have just a giant put borough colder yeah giant like. Yeah whatever I'm GONNA go bowling. I'm out of the game. They've already ruled me out to fifty one right well coming off the flu. The flu blue. I felt better. Wow let's get let's get to some of the The actual action on the field. Sometimes it takes A. It's not as interesting stuff going on off the field game of the year saints N- Orleans. Wow Yeah how how how about that I I didn't I didn't see the offense of explosion you know there's this there's this Kaseke remember what it's called it's a site like a twitter side That that deals with scores. That have never happened before. Okay I forget what it's called Score Gazza or something like that. It's like some some you know clever little super name but do you know that that particular score what was it. Forty eight forty six forty four six has for saying it the right way by the way forty or forty six has never happened in the history of the NFL. Forty eight forty six forty eight forty six never happens. That was the first game that that has ever happened in the NFL. So you know. They've got this whole the alert. I don't I don't think score gasm. But that's the first thing that popped into my head so I just said it an talent get orgasms on your mind and so I I you know I mean it was like to be able to go back and forth into battle that way. You know the interesting interesting thing to me is having done several niners games and talking to you know Kyle Shanahan. It's about you know he's always said this. Is it not be derogatory tortoise quarterback but he's like hey listen man you know. He makes two or three mistakes game and he goes. If we get one of these Games where you've got to throw it a bunch You know do those two or three mistakes become five or six or seven mistakes and because that's going to cost US game. Jimmy Garoppolo Goes Twenty Six twenty thirty five seventy four point three percent completion rate three hundred and forty nine yards fourteen and a pick sacked three times in a game where they didn't run it with frequency. They ran it well for yards. It's precare but didn't run up with frequency because they were in the score fast Jimmy Garoppolo was tremendous mean absolutely tremendous as was drew brees. So I I tell you what You look at you look at the League right now. Those two teams in the NFC got clearly be kind of the the class of the NFC. Seattle is no easy out. They're going to be great is a matter of fact that divisions probably GONNA come down to a game between the niners. There's and the Seahawks I think it's is it a week. Seventeen or sixteen games last week. The last week I've seen it's GONNA come down to that and remember. Seattle went to San Francisco earlier in season and beat them. So it's going to come down to that game for that division and probably the number one overall seed Mike as it's incredible and then you look at the AFC. I mean. New England seems to be reeling right. Now it's one of the reasons they're in Cincinnati taping or they're taping tape in Cincinnati sidelines. They seem to be really right now. Kansas City all of a sudden. Don't look now but all of a sudden can't see I'm not GonNa talk about their offense I'm talking about. Their defense is starting to play. Well really well so all of a sudden they're starting to play. Well the Baltimore. Ravens have clearly been the best team in the AFC. Oh see pretty much all season long. Mean this is th there are some teams that are starting to flex their chests a little bit. Yep Yep and it'd be curious. I'm curious to see what happens with Kansas City. Can they avoid the dreaded Patriot hangover. 'cause two weeks or last week You you had a Houston team coming off a big win over New England and never beaten you know the Patriots before where I had an obvious letdown. You know I'm not taking anything away. From what the Broncos did the broncos played very well we'll get to drew lock here in a second but you know they they clearly weren't. The same team hammered the Patriots the week before four. I'll be curious to see if Kansas City. You know what kind of emotional win. That was for them. Going up to Foxborough ending New England's twenty one game home winning streak. I mean that's a big deal. Do they suffer a letdown against the broncos this week and we interesting interesting to see as drew lock drew lock Missouri Zone drew lock homecoming. There's expected to be about forty to fifty friends and family. There is. Is this kid of all young quarterbacks that we've watch this year I mean where would you put his debut view. We'll hear some of these lines road. Debut was may stork. It was as good as it gets like you said historic His first I game he missed a bunch of throws There's five or six throws he just they were just really poor throws but he comes back. I mean he storms back he makes great throws now like I was a bit surprised at like Kansas City was so they were so fearful of court sun which is good. You know that you've got that kind of fear going but you're so fearful of course sudden. Beat you double teamed him pretty much the entire to the game you played man under a bunch and your guys just couldn't hold up in coverage whether it was you know running backs or whether it was the tide end or whoever over the case may be you blew a couple of those coverages and you couldn't hold up in coverage and that kid pick you apart plus you know some of the playcalling some getting him on the edge the BOOT keep game some of the things they did Email because of his athleticism it shows else like they have. They have opened up a few things a few wrinkles. If you will within their offense that have helped them because of the mobility and and the the arm talent of drew lock so that part is a good thing. they have. When was the last time? The broncos actually beat the cheese has been day in a row eight straight losses to the chiefs. I mean that's hell that's what this will be four. This'll be four. It's four and a half seasons seasons right yes. Four and a half seasons without beating the chiefs they seem to have their number and and they have been able in a defense that has been really good this season. The chiefs are just so flip in fast and talented Al on the offense of side of the ball the thing that they have done honestly the thing they've done really well is they have been able to hold up in what we like to call five. Oh protection menial five offensive linemen can hold up without whatever you whatever five. We're not afraid to go. Go One on one across the board with you and one of them is Mitchell Schwartz at right tackle has as had in my mind. He's pretty much had von on Miller's number one on one and then whether it's Fisher whoever else plays on the other side has done a good job of locking down that edge and they have been able will to go one on one with the Broncos and hold up and when you can do that what ends up happening to you is. You can't cover Travis Kelsey for more than two and a half seconds. You can't cover tyreek Hill for more than a second half you can't cover. They've got some other kids drafted that and I don't even know the name. Seventeen a couple of other kids that can just McColl Lard. Men's world get just flat wrong Sammy. Watkins still run Sammy Watkins. Yeah so they're the. The talent level for them is just so extreme. There's no question in my mind. I haven't haven't looked this up. There's no question they've got more forty yard touchdowns forty plus your touchdowns in any team in League League They strike from long distance to consistently do it. They did it to doing last week team. I didn't think it was going to give up a forty yard or they did. Yeah I think the one big forty plus Georgia first score so I just have a tough time. I think it's just a bad match up. I I just I you know. This defense of Kansas City is is actually league. Aim better yet matthews playing great. They got Chris Jones back from injury. That guy's been a game record against the Broncos the they've got a they just have a They have a team that matches up. I'll tell you what I I know. Lamar Jackson is is the rage right now in the ravens are doing the rage but Ken Cities Cities Gut enough personal experience going up against the reins and Lamar Jackson. That right now if I I I had to call my shot. I think the chiefs would be my pick to to win here. Yeah the chiefs Mike the chiefs there the chiefs. I know come on site. Oh I.
Broncos Rookie QB Drew Lock to Make 1st Career NFL Start vs. Chargers
"App the year of the backup and backup backup quarterback continues in the NFL we saw David Blau start on thanksgiving for the lions the bangles are going back to Andy Dalton the Steelers going back to doc Hodges and now mark the Denver Broncos are turning to drool lock as their starting quarterback another quarterback for the Broncos who can't seem to find their footing at that position and I'm wondering and a lot of people are wondering is this an indictment on

Broncos' Flacco: It's not my job to groom Lock
"Bronco's quarterback Joe flacco says it's not his job to groom rookie drew lock as successor. Flacco says his job is to learn Denver's new offense. Go win games himself. Wacko says it's the coach's job to teach the rookie. And it's up to lock to learn what he can by watching flacco do his
Joe Flacco Says His Job Is to Win Games for Broncos, Not Mentor Rookie Drew Lock
"So guys Joe flacco was kind of talking and was asked about mentoring. Drew lock in the newest quarterback to the room and vodka is said, look, I'm not here to be a mentor. I'm here to win football games. So already. There might be some some drama in a quarterback room. And Joe flacco knows a thing or two about that. Because last year when he was in Baltimore they drafted Lamar Jackson, and he was in a very similar situation. So I'm sure he's just a sick and tired of being asked about being a mentor when he personally probably feels like he's still got stuff left in the tank. Yeah. I think that that's I mean that answers probably a little okay? Guys enough's enough. I'm here to to win football games. I I'm here to be the guy and be the starter. And you know, I think he's price that a little bit of eggs to your point there shoot. He's probably tired of. Hey, this guy here you're gonna help them along the ropes. No, I'm here to win. I'm gonna get myself prepared if the guy asks questions and all answers questions, but in the meantime, I'm not going to be the quarterback coach I'm going to be the guy getting ready to go head when some flip ball games, the Denver Broncos. And I think he does have a lot left and take the be Joe flacco. They put some good pieces around him. Some receivers have guys that can protect him. I think he'll do very well for Denver rather get in the playoffs. Probably not at they'll
Broncos trade up to select Missouri QB Lock
"Lock to over as Mizzou's QB one after five games of his freshman season. He started the next forty six leaving school with ninety nine career touchdown passes. A traditional pocket passer law has a big arm a big frame at six four to twenty five and his sneaky, good athlete. No one is more confident than him. Although we can get in trouble, trusting his arm too much. All right. So drew lock goes to the Broncos Johnny how long before he's the starter week one. He beats out he won't be. He won't beat out flacco, I don't think. But Joe flacco is having draft draft day remember to sort of case keenum case keenum goes the quarterbacks drafted he's at the Rams draft here golf the Redskins. Now the draft Wayne has this kind of Steve Bergische flacco last year they draft Lamar Jackson and other draft. Drew lock. Yeah. So I had said all along that the Broncos the Broncos staff spent a lot a lot of time with you lock senior bowl a lot of time with him. So I wasn't. I was surprised when I heard the Broncos were very very hot heavy after July, but they decided to trade down no fan number twenty and the they'd drew lock waiter, and they were able to get him back to back picks with don't riser. So they could move there by John Elway to get through locking the second round. And the thing is if if. Hits. But Johnny why get flacco in the first place. Why that's that's why I'm not a big fan of Joe flacco. I mean, I've said all along that if I if I'm running an offense I wanna quarterback that's going to be able to make some place when things break down because I know my offensive line isn't going to be able to to hold up every single every single play. I look our experiences are now. Is the Sean that's our experience. Now like we see that. I mean, everything is sort of jaded with the line. Play will ask you but chunk still make something's happening. If you haven't slot play. Well in Denver the record done done. So drew lock in is a pretty good f-. He's a great basketball player. In fact, he thought he was going to go play basketball in college. So drew locks and athlete that can make some things happen. A couple years ago. We saw that too degree against Texas in the academy. Sports and outdoors texts. He had a cut one of the best does I've ever seen any of these quarterbacks. Make he threw for a touchdown against Texas. And I still I could see standing outside right in line with what he threw it. And it was like sixty yards is beautiful parabolas. Right. Enhance observes Seaver running it for touchdowns. Like, whoa. I mean, it was nice. That's when you realize this guy's got some serious armed talent. Like Denver's great spot for
1st round of the 2019 NFL draft is complete
"Us to the first round is in the books could show for the NFL last night. Just goes to show you the popularity of this league. And I I know I keep harping on this. But it's bears repeating there were a lot of people who made a lot of bones for themselves by predicting the death of this league, eventually real demise of this leak, but there were over one hundred thousand people if not close to two hundred thousand people that descended on natural last night that that went very very deep down Broadway. They were everywhere rooftop bars. They were coming out of windows. They were pouring off of bridges just to see this. It was let me make this clear. This was big. Business by the league. This could have been done behind closed doors. No one needs to watch the draft. No one needs to make it. You don't have. They don't even have to make a television show the sporting event that they do that has to be a television show that has to be for the public. That's how you make your money. The business side of this picking players that doesn't have to be a show that doesn't have to be on stage. That doesn't have to be a festival that could have been done in a in a bar in a ballroom in New York City like it used to years past, but because people want this product because the league wants so wants to connect with its fans make the fans this is why the big celebrations over the last couple of years they've taken this thing on the road. In essence, this is this is become the NFL's big party for the public a Super Bowl not so much because you're bringing in fan bases of two teams. Right. If you're a dolphins fan, you just don't go to the Super Bowl to hang out. But you can go to the drafting you can go to wherever city that the draft is having and you could hang out, and I saw jerseys from every team last night everywhere. It was awesome. It was my first draft was I loved it. But but the picks over the money is made for this the picks, or what is the talking point not the rain, not the band, not the Goodell booing, not the, you know, the colorful fans that came out in their costumes. What mattered was the picks and Kyla Murray going number one set this draft up to be normal. But then the raiders kind of made made a big move with the fourth pick. They took us lean Farrell at Clemson the edge rusher. Now, this was the surprise pick that John. Talked about now. Listen for Rosie good play. A really good players. A first team all American. You won the Ted Hendricks award for the best defensive end in college football. He played for a defense. That was one of the top defenses in college football for the top team in college football. Okay. But he could have been had in the twenties. They really liked him. Or at least wanted to make a statement that they were going to get him. But he wasn't projected to be a top five pick. Now, why the raiders made him a top five pick? When he wasn't projected. Who knows maybe the don't listen to mock draft guys all the time. Maybe it's because they don't listen the pundits. They are really they day. See something that they think other teams are going to see like they are. So they do their draft board. They watch him. They watch it. He's a beast. They watch him play. He's great. They want him at four. But they think other teams want him at six or seven or five or whatever. So they have to feel like they make the move. If this is the guy they really want. They get them. Now. Here's the thing. I can criticize the raiders you can criticize the raiders for making that pick early because they had two picks later on. But maybe the reality is that the two guys in the twenties, which we'll talk about later that they knew that they could get there. And those guys they really wanted to. So in essence, I can't fall to team forgetting who they want, but I can criticize where you get that player. And none bigger than what the giants. Did it six? This to me was the shocking move of the draft. This had everybody in the media Senegal. Daniel Jones of Duke getting picked in the six spot from the New York Giants who had the seventeenth pick in the draft and could have gotten them there. I thought need a huge mistake here. Jones. Is a David cut cliff product. He is a manning passing academy product the giants like the way he threw it pro day, but you don't make this move at six. There is defense of galore on the board. And you've got to go get Josh Allen is on the table. And you let him go you see how fast Jacksonville made their pick. When they took Daniel Jones. Josh Allen Kentucky was on the board for the giants. They could have gotten one of the best edge rusher in the draft. And they went quarterback a position right now. This very second. They don't need. They would probably have liked but don't need because the move you made. Here wasn't just getting a good old quarterback tobacco ally. Manning for couple years. This is going to be your franchise guy. Are you that Schorr Daniel Jones at Duke is your franchise guy? If you have manning plate next year, you could have set yourself up for getting Jalen hurts Jake from two tons of Loa any other quarterbacks. They you still can don't get me wrong. You could pull one Arezzo pulled and get your second quarterback. But normally that's not how it's done. I can see the New York media, and they're already started. Daniel Jones is the least popular draft pick. The giants have had in a long time. Hey, must've really fell in love with because I don't get this one at all. And I know I could be nice. Oh, he did really good at two key. He throws a good ball. He was accurate up above you. Just still don't make the play here. Dave Gettleman smarter than this. I praised the Gettleman higher coming from the Carolina Panthers to New York, but but can eat does. He know what he's doing with. Does. He have a plan for the for the New York Giants for this football team. Because I don't see it. And the other thing about about where the giants are going here. Is again, you just put ally manning on the clock. Now, I've been telling you, this is this is why I wouldn't have done this. If I was to get my my franchise quarterback with the sixth pick. If you wanna get a quarterback just to get a quarterback get him at seventeen or in around two or three. Now, drew lock is available for crying out loud. But by making the statement, you've put ally manning on the clock. Luckily for manning, this isn't a popular pick with giants fans. Because if it was a popular pick with giants fans, then Eli is gonna feel the pressure next season. And he's going to feel his career and his light on his career diminish after everything he's done for New York ending by being benched for this kid and never getting his job back. Luckily, this is not a popular pick. And maybe get him into saying this is the guy that has to learn and grow, but we like his long-term
