Drew Lock gets start at QB for Broncos vs. Dolphins
"In right now from Denver is Bruce Morton, where the Dolphins writing quite in a winning streak. And in Denver today to take out a Broncos team that should have drew locket quarterback is we check in with Bruce? Bruce, How are you? Hey, Pretty good act Drew lock is expected to start today despite an injured rib. Least they're hoping that he can start but that injured rib had something to do last week, with Locke throwing four interceptions. As for the Dolphins, they're looking for their first. Knicks game win streak since 2016 and if the Dolphins were to win today, Miami would be seven and three for the first time since 2001. Things are not quite as bright on the Denver side, not only of the Broncos three and six But they're looking down the barrel of a gun float over the next three weeks. Miami, New Orleans, then at Kansas City, so there's a very real possibility. These three and six Broncos two weeks from tonight could be three and 91 of the things they need to do today because they need to stop the ground attack of the opponent. The Broncos have allowed 200 yards or more of rushing into of their last three games. So That's that's pretty much the scene here. Skies are cleared, The high should be in the upper forties. In the stands, there will be 5700 fans at today's game. This At a time in which the city and county of Denver have raised their Covad restrictions and in line with those ramped up restrictions. This will be the last time in 2020, in which fans are allowed to attend Bronco home games. Wow
Las Vegas Raiders face 'daunting task' with COVID-19 issues ahead of game vs. Kansas City Chiefs
"Kid city chiefs at eight point favorite leg. I said we'll get to that in a second on the road against the vegas raiders on this game. Fifty six and a half. We will have. John cheering on later. I'm sure he'll be able to explain whether slightly above the market pain. i have to believe. That's all covid related to be quite honest. The raiders defense in the contact tracing protocol. We're not quite sure. If i'm going to have to get called up to play safety and let me tell you my foot speed not enough to slow down tyreek hill and open spaces really wouldn't say i mean i might try and slew coming off the line. That'd be my only shot. so listen. I the raiders offensive game plan back in week five was good. Obviously but the halftime adjustments that. Paul guenther in the raiders. Defensively really is what i think won them the game. It's really what gave the chiefs offense trouble. You really hadn't seen that from the chiefs offense before during this. Patty mahomes like run especially against the defense of that caliber. You go back to week. Five in the second half. Kansas city was successful. Only twenty one percent of their snaps. One point to carry twenty eight percent success rate through their moms is pressured. A ton the raiders. Were able to do something in that game. They hadn't been able to do most of the season which is get pressure vegas. Twenty six on the season pass rush win rate and then obviously after a few good games. Recently where the raiders have been able to apply some pressure to quarterbacks. They've surged to an average defense in pressuring the week. Five game if you look at some of these numbers. Mahomes was pressured on forty. Seven percent of total dropbacks specifically from eleven personnel. Were kansas city. Essentially lives seventy three percent of the time moms pressured on fifty seven percent of those three wide sets. I would envision off the bye with the little extra motivation of not. Just losing to the raiders but but kansas city not being really happy about gruden and the gang taken victory laps around the the stadium there drivers using using the loudspeaker thereafter the week. Five win that Andy reid is probably gonna come with a pretty good game plan here and you know past the success that andy. Reid is hat off the bye. You mentioned this. The raiders are are probably going to be without a few key defenders but You know another handful of defensive players are going to miss practice all week due to this contact tracing. It's probably isn't the offense that you wanna face short handed in in pissed off and not having practiced to four. I would think. I also believe we'll probably see a little more play action for mandatory. You know patty mahomes in the chiefs past game will probably fair little bit. Better here with play action. Especially if if the pressure starts to barrel down. I would also think that it's worth mentioning that three chiefs offensive lineman or on the cova the list it's believed to be contact tracing but we'll have to see this certainly make this game a little bit different. If if all three of those offensive lineman are out. You also expect sammy. Watkins to return in this game us a full practice participant on wednesday so he should be a full ghost that they're gonna have their their complement of weapons out there. The number in this thing is is really interesting. But i think that this tougher makes a lot of sense. I i just don't see. Kansas city's offense not bouncing back here in a major way talk. i mean. They're playing with a chip on their shoulder. Which is always dangerous to begin with. We've seen their passing offense. That was more a work in progress. Probably the nicest way to put it early on in the season and no doubt that was by design. Get on track with mahomes during for more than eight hundred yards the last two games when you look at the way. Mahomes performed against the raiders. Fifteen total touchdowns just two interceptions one of them of course coming earlier this year the chiefs loss as a double digit home favor and i think it's pretty staggering to know what costs kansas city. That game is the fact that hey look. They finished a net negative minus sixty four in terms of rushing yards. The raiders held the ball for nearly eleven minutes longer and kansas city knows that they can hit the home runs. That are widely available. If they keep mahomes operate i think. The raiders passing defenses. You mention it may trending in the right direction. There's no doubt a lot of optimism out here around the raiders especially on the defensive side of the ball. This is a different beast that they're going to try and counter and with sammy watkins back amongst others. I just don't know where the raiders consistently find a way to get off the field. I agree with that. And i get it. You have to young corners in trayvon mullin in our net and people are thinking to themselves like. Hey we're trending in the right direction. We're starting to get some pressure. Would you look you play at the browns. The total is suppressed because of weather and wind. You're at the chargers. It's likely a a lost game. If two guys can hold onto football on the back corner fate and then the broncos last week and drew lock was clearly injured after taking a hit in the second quarter but you could have been trailing at halftime in that game so listen. I think the raiders are better than we all expected. You look at who they've lost to. It's it's the bills box and patriots. All pretty good teams obviously bucks in bills being very good patriots. You know with bill tough spot. There is well off the monday night game traveling across the country. So i get the by of the raiders. I just need to see more defensively to believe it's real and so that that's kind of where i'm out on that unit. I fully expect kansas city to do some good things here. Offensively

Do they have a different quarterback different off sublime yourself. I'm always really take from them as the score more points than the other teams do. We're not doing that whether that's what they do. Or how do it at up to them but by focuses the broncos right now not the dolphins. Hey drew pat was saying the responsibility for adjusting protections. Pre-snap starts with quarterback in center. So how do you feel. You are at this compared with when you first started last year. And what are the things that can be done. Day-to-day to continue improving. Yeah definitely farther. Than when i was last year the thing that helped me a lot last year. Was you have a veteran guy. Guys play tackle played guard in. He's played center and this is his second year at center. Were used in the league. Prevent people we talk about our young skilled athletes but ottawa.

"Thursday broncos country and it it does feel like abbie thursday nice weather starting to almost feel like fall and broncos back on the practice field with a couple of faces. I think you want to see. Certainly noah fant back out there and limited capacity is a good thing demar dotson for the second day in a row. The full participant. I think there's going to be a decision. It's going to have to be made it right. Tackle you go back to the veteran. Or do you activate allies wilkinson and start him. I think you can activate them and not start him. Then those are maybe mutually exclusive but wilkinson get his job back or was dotson playing well enough that you keep the twelve year vet in. So that's a decision. And then what are you doing at quarterback. I wanted to wait until we heard from drew lock or if we were going to hear from drew lock and i thought we might and it turns out that we did so vic fangio prior to practice drew's gonna do a little bit more and we'll see where we're at but here is drew. Lock himself to. Here's entire press conference for the. I think he does a good job addressing a number of things including not only how he feels. I asked him about his ribs. And how do you recover from sewer ribs. Or how do you treat that compared to say a sprained ankle. Because he had mentioned a sprained ankle he talks about the interceptions a lot. He drew a bit of an open book. And i appreciate that because he doesn't shy from hard question hard questions. He doesn't goof around more than a twenty four year. Old kid might and so. I think that it's refreshing to have someone who's not a robot that that is honest. That is confident that can show a little emotion and so i wanted to wait until you heard from drew. Lock and brown ribbon talked as well. So you hear from that kitto Because i i like everything about him and continue to think that he has a place. Here as the broncos backup for i think a long time maybe behind roommate behind somebody else. But if i've are batman i would say that it's behind drew going into next year Of course a lot can happen between now. And.

I already know what you're about Seibu. Concur with you with Welfare quotes okay, but go on. Okay, but I keep saying. Plenty from Eurovision, because. That seem within the police office and they keep saying that CA I. Keep saying it Delaney in that welfare voice. One, because he's decided. Was the after the wreck of a performance. They have it everyone after the hamster wheel goes off and they just they. They continue. Sorry spoiled. A Will Ferrell comedy for everybody. So once they start doing. Hand motions when they're dancing and they're double trouble double double trouble in. They're doing like the choreographed dance with it. It just kills me like I just thought that was the funniest part of the whole movie, and then the Elf which is catchy as heck. Okay question, four. Sorry. I had trouble picking the third best team in the AFC. Who Do you think it is? So very obvious top two. But, then it's really difficult. I'm racking my brain. I panicked. I think I told you this I panicked and pick the colts on. Get up. There I think it has. And now I have to stand by that take. 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. Have a really easy opening schedule and I think we're GONNA. Be Really High undersupply on. All right. Last question is always comes from Lenny. UK. laughing. Right the question.

"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.

"One of the hosts thinks the phrase tap mahomes foams is what happens to pops when they're good boys. That's Lenny.

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.

We ready to say he's not only the again saying he's a franchise. quarterback is not saying he's the dark horse to win. The MVP those are two totally different things. 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. Before where we start really didn't do anything on this I. Think he's going to be good I. I don't know that I'm ready to say he's. He's going to be up in Peyton.

I'll tell you what turned me off about him and this is. The people and they slipped off the camera. Was that what? Made a lot of people the wrong way I actually knew the sports information guy. 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.

"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

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.

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.
