Oh, you're going to like broadcast the game via text and by the time I look at my phone. There's going to be a giant hole like a play by play taxed of everything that happened. Man Happens to me. That seriously is a problem that is a problem. Thousands of people in this world struggle with every day, and that's what I'm GonNA fight. That's my big fight. There's a lot of big things going on in the world, but that's my fight. I feel like a lot of people just feel like they have to tell you're. Make sure you saw something related to sports all the time all the time and And, if I if I predict something on this show, I will get something on the text line or my messages or even taxed individually. Because I have people that have my my real number that listen to the show and they'll say hey. Like, I predicted the broncos to win down to nothing, and I'll get like forty tex a row. How about them Broncos and I'm like yeah. That's true still still early. I knew still early guy. But now like I'll get people. That I mean, I'll be I'll say hey and I'm just sitting down. I poured that beer I got the kid tucked in ready to go to sleep. My wife's like you know what I'm GonNa do this I'm gonNA listen to a book or go. Do something at listened to a book. That's the thing now. To go do that. Whatever so you enjoy, enjoy the show I'm like Oh. Wow all right. It's some me time poor that beer. Crack that I fear and you're here. We go get the heat up the pizza whatever I'm doing. Sit down. You got your emotes. You're ready to go you. Re Cli-. Turn that Tube and You I'm GonNa put my phone away Tuck it back and I get a text. It's like holy cow rockies. Twelve home runs and it's like. Really it's over just the Rockies web at you're happy now. Brady like man or the my own fault. Sometimes do it. I'll okay so go record the game. And I leave it on the channel. That I recorded. I'm recording it on because you can you know? You. You don't have to do that anymore. Colefax in record watching something right, but I'll forget so I'll go record it. Turn it off and then go about my business I got turned the TV off and I. Forget about that. That's happened to me more with basketball games and I'll turn it on, and I'm in the middle of the third period or something, and it's like a ten point game or something like I just. I've even done it worse world. Turn it on was like twenty seconds left. Drive me insane, but that's. Steve, that's the. That's the risk with great dvr power. Comes Great. Great Risk Plan a dangerous game with his very dangerous game in and I have I have. I have had more spoilers than I care to admit. You. Know End and I'll tell people I'm not watching it live. Oh, so sorry, forget what I just said. Okay. First advantage text line, three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine six. How about this one? WHO's career. Do you think our next power play sports poll question of the day which broncos qb will drew lock be more comparible to incur in terms of career success. I'm not before you're GONNA know he's more like Jake Plumber. He's weighed talent, wise skill wise. No I'm talking about career. So? When drew lock is all said and done. And we've gone through it. Maybe it's ten years from emanate. Maybe he gets a fancy ten year contract out of this. Whose career is he going to be more is going to be more comparable. Is he going to be the next John Elway? Are we going to say whoa because again? The odds of that happening are zero. Nobody's ever done it. Manning was manning before he came to Denver so you can't like if the broncos manning then yeah, you could have said wow. The broncos had to greatest quarterbacks of all time, but that's different. Manning was his own beast. But, do you see and I? Did throw up there. Because again. I- Colfax will tell you right now. I think Peyton Manning. Is the better quarterback between Peyton Manning John. Really I do athletically. Obviously, there's no contest John. elway. WAS HE I mean? He did whatever it it would. You never saw fainting goat with him and I mean he was doing the helicopter. He was doing all that stuff, but as far as knowing defenses and getting a football to a wide receiver, an open space and finding those spots, manning was better there. elway had the cannon. And he had that he could run I. mean he had that ability to move, and maybe he had more of A. You know more of a will to win. Because when you can run there, there is something that quarterbacks just can turn on a switch. Running quarterbacks will stop at nothing to get a first down. You know so. Peyton doesn't have that and he didn't have that. It was I got to find an open receiver if my first options out their second third fourth fainting, goat time. So there again. He doesn't have that ability. However, who had the better career paid manager John elway paid manning two super bowls. John had two super bowls, I think Oh. It went to five. Manning went to four. But Manning has all the records you know. He's over elway. He has the records over John elway. I guess we could debate that one all day, but depending on who you believe like whose whose career is going to be more has more of a John Elway, guy. You know where he's like a legend of Denver. John elway is the most popular sportsman in the state. No question, so do you see drew lock being that guy, or is he going to be like Peyton? Manning's is really really great. He's maybe one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time Nor Plumber. Jake plumber very solid for? The broncos very good. But. Nobody's saying that he's one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. He was just a I think it was unrated underappreciated while he was here. But is that going to be drew lock where he's kind of unslinging Kinda, got a little edge to him he does. He has a little. He's not cocky, but he hasn't edged to abuse the buzz. Light your thing. Like staff on as defined as an edge. Yeah, you're so cocky, you and your? Buzz light year antics toy story buzz light year. I love the market. You're so that cocky. You Know Kinda Fun. It's different. It's not like Cam. Newton. You know he's doing the superman thing, and he's audible ing by pointing up and doing all this crazy thing. Drew locks just doing buzz light year having fun. I don't have an issue with that too much. But is he gonNA be more like A. Going, to be just one of the forgettable cubeys, and that's what most teams have collectively. Most teams have more quarterbacks that are just kind of forgettable. Just fade off. Let's see. Thirty six percent, and maybe that's because the picture I used. Plummer drew lock thirty six percent. Say Plumber subliminal. It's probably cannot I. Can I like do an option like somewhere in between plumber and alway-? Maybe like I think it'll be a little better than plummer. In, maybe this is why it's because La meaning kind of confusing on there right because they're. So, far beyond, you could argue that. Both of them are like so I mean if you tell me that you always a better quarterback than manning, you're not gonNA get like this. Are you serious? You're going to say oh. Yeah I mean I can see why. You'RE NOT GONNA. Get too much of an argument for me on that, so those are tough. I mean you could go trump Yuka. INC seeing play and listen. I'm talking about super bowls. I'm talking about greatness I'm talking about guys that have done big things, and that's why when I say. Oh, way manning, elway, manning or your upper echelon. Greatness Jake plumber was good, not great. He did he was he. Came into the Bronco came the broncos as a free agent to. Kind of a you know he's not like. He built his career with Denver, but when he came here, he was, he was pretty solid. In the broncos were a playoff team while he was here. They got smoked by paid manning twice, but then his third year he was very good. It was like you know some people talk about him. Being the VP that that's how so you had that one great year, and then obviously Shanahan decides to go draft Jay. Cutler and that's that was the end of the plumber era pretty much. Jake started the next season, but He knew he was on the way out, and he didn't WanNa be there anymore. And hinchey and Hanworth denied I and it was bad. so you're saying between plumber. A little bit. There's not really anything between. I just think he'll stick around longer than plummer and maybe. Since he's a homegrown guy. Draft Pick. Because again, it's been easily away manning I. mean maybe it's rebuke then I mean. Should I put him up there? We'll do that during the break. Let's throw him up there. But I guess I should have. Maybe that's where we're going to go all right. We'll go do that. We'll edit that for you. Colefax that you have to have I have to have it fifteen minutes after are. Let's get Let's get Steve Fairchild on the program with us. Let's talk to Him we'll call him in a moment and see what he thinks about drew lock. There's a lot of hype. National Media's going all in on drew lock, is it? Is it warranted or should we be warned? Should we be a little worried? That drew lock might not live up to all the hype fifteen minutes after the hour live from the article is specialist studios. This is the whole show powered by energy. You're listening to the hall's show. Powered by PD energy and thirteen ten KFI Cayenne Brady will be back after the break. The Best UNC bears starting game coverage a lives on thirteen ten Kfi K.. Christopher DMC your nuggets insider from altitude sports, and you are listening to the whole show on thirteen ten KFI. Nineteen minutes after the hour. Welcome back to the show. The whole show powered by PD energy. Gavin some fun with this power to play sports poll question now, so we did. We added trip Yuka there to watch. Bronco's quarterback will drew lock be more comparable to in terms of career success, not like who they're going to be like. You might play more like Jake Plumber, but is he going to be like an Elway type success, story, plummer, manning or just one of the forgettable quarterbacks? You know when? When we draft to get excited about kind of fizzles joining me now on the program, a great friend of the show Steve Fair child's love, his website Fairchild qb training dot com, putting in the work training, some great quarterbacks at every level of course, Steve's resume goes on and on Nfl Coaching Experience College, Coaching Experience Steve, my friend. It's been a little while, but great to catch up with you man. Yeah thanks for having me on opioid opening. There's doing well we're. We're hanging in there. It's it's certainly a different story every single day, but how about you man I again following you on social media. I know you're rocking and rolling and and doing some big things still. Yeah trying to stay busy, but at the same time social distancing. Hand Sanitizer, and where my masking doors so You know this strange times, but they'll. They'll pass now. I'm with you there. My friend well. We're talking a lot about drew lock. And of course we carry the herd with Colin Cowherd here on the an-and KFTA and he's one of the national media. Guys just going all in, and there's a lot of for some reason you. You know now. We're really starting to hear it I. Don't know if coward started we as Broncos fans. We we saw drew lock. We were excited five games in pretty good numbers for and one a wanted to get you oughta day coach to to talk a bit about drew lock and first off over hyped right now at this stage on this twenty second day of July. I don't think there is such a thing with with an NFL quarterback because the hype at that position is. like the bar is so high. You're you're you're you're expecting greatness from everybody that steps out on the field every time, but I think there is reason for sincere optimism a based on the five games. He played in I know it's a small sample size, but he. He certainly played well I. I'm familiar with because I wrote him up coming out of Missouri for a number of teams in in media, people, and I really liked him coming out. I thought he had A. Definitely first round arm talent You know he's athletic. He's a guy and. you know there's a lot to like about him? He's a little bit streaky in college in get playing a spread offense, so you knew there's going to be. a little bit of a learning curve, but he was a four year starter, and yes, you see. That says a lot about anybody so you know. When when I saw him preseason I, thought the learning curve was GONNA. Be a while. You looked a little little uneasy in the preseason. Then he got hurt and busted, really grinded or just. Switch must've flipped on because I thought he played very well. The last five games and know certainly has talent so I think the you know the needle pointing up, and let's just see how good he can beat the broncos. Certainly, they're giving them all the tools here I mean. They went all in and the draft and we saw big free agent signings with you know offensive linemen and getting Melvin Gordon so when we were throwing a lot of weapons from your experience. Experience especially on that offense of coordinating side is there. Is there such thing as you know? Drew Your Young, but we're going all in. We're throwing all these weapons. Does that somehow put extra pressure on a quarterback, does it? Does it go from all right? We want to teach you how to drive, but now instead of that. We're giving you a jet to operate. What do you think of that kind of assessment is too much of a good thing in this case? No you, there's no such thing as having too many players so I'm sure drew very happy about it, and and that's the way you want it you you don't want to. you know somebody to go happy with you. Want you want them to commit to you? And through with good a talent as you can you know in Asia. They've done a nice job from a receiving core You know they're gonNA. They're GONNA put some people on the field and the tight end as well. Who I think's going to be a very good player for him He's been in the system a year, so he's GonNa have some guys to throw to. I don't know about the Mel, Gordon thing I don't know. You know they had to pretty good backs, but you know again. You can't have too many. Good players feel help. but I think their biggest concern. I was them would be. Up Front. Where are the left tackle and How's that group GonNa play and and You know if they can step up I think that he has all the pieces that he needs to be to be a very good quarterback. Now again you, you have more notes than a lot of the fans in the five games, because of your work guy in seeing him in college, and and following his career and really do going into some deep scouting of. Of Drew Lock what about those concerns? When you look at me, said a bit streaky at times, but are there concerns five games in the NFL. We saw a small sample size looked very good, but are there reasons you said optimistic, but what about being a bit cautious, other some of those reasons when you look at drew locks body of work that maybe fans should say okay. There's there's potential that he could have some of these issues in the future. You Know I. Don't see a real physical issue with the guy I think he can. He can make every throw. He's got good size. He's good athlete. when they did put him in there. which I thought was really good decision by the organization to go ahead and put them in and. And see what you got those last five games. It did not look too big for him. you know. He throws with people around him. you know he's GonNa like every quarterback. You the guys that play ten twelve years. They're better. You know the next year I, mean just it's A. It's a spot where experience helps He's not real experienced, but you know you're just GonNa have to live with some ups and downs with them initially, but I don't think anybody's that that looks at him and saying hey. I wish he had a better throws a better ball in this area or wish, you better athlete, or which this or that I you know he's got the tools. And, like I said he's got a great group of guys that throat, and so Yeah, I I think it looks bright. I really do and you know you just can't expect him to light it on fire. Every time is the second year in first year starter, but I think he's going to have a good career I. Think when it's all said and done they'll. They'll be really happy. Happy that they got him in the second round. We're talking to Steve. Fairchild owner of Fairchild quarterback training We'll talk to you. We'll give you some more information on that website here in a moment now when you were writing up information and going into a lot of his film study and things of that nature were you of the mindset that he he should have been a first round pick. You know I I was a complete I. When I wrote about by said he was the first round pick. I thought he was the second best quarterback in the draft behind. Ask and physically but. But having said that now you know I I only right what I see in in you know great on tape and a lot of this. You've got to get a feel for a guy in person with how you interact with his team mates, and watch him at a workout, and and talk to them and I I never did that, so you know when he fell the second round, I thought. Thought you know. Maybe there's you know. There's some teams didn't feel good about it. And sometimes it's just luck to its you know who's available to draft and who's drafting and what they need, but you know again I, thought we're the BRONCOS got him I. thought he was a steel based on what I knew. in and again it's there's definitely first round arm talent with the guy. Steve Is. Is there some times when okay you put that first round label on a quarterback and they get picked early in the first round i. mean that stays with you forever, so if you're anything other than great. A lot of people put that extra pressure on you to be better than that is there is there sense that you know if you get picked in the second round or beyond you Kinda. Go in playing with house money because if you don't have that first. Label Tat. I label attached to you. Maybe. There's a sense that there's not as much pressure on you as a career career. Well. I think I think that and I think the media. I think the the personnel department. I think the people in the organization, maybe the owner. You know when when you draft somebody in. You'RE GONNA financially. Commit to somebody in the first round it. You can't. You can't have him standing there on the sideline You're more apt to be a little slower like they were withdrew and I know the injury was factor, but you know you could. You could let them sit for a year. If you had to an and the pressure to put him out, there wasn't gonNA be. as great from the you know, the surrounding people so yeah I mean I'm sure he wanted to go in first round, and the money would be actually better, but you know it is what it is. He ended up in in a good spot. He's surrounded by the players You know he's proven that he can. He can do it in a short created time, and now hopefully he stays healthy and You know. He has a long and successful career I'm sure most of the where if not all the people that are broncos spans with would love to see. Steve, we, we've had a lot of these discussions. Like where are they going to be in ten years? Because we haven't had a lot of sports, talk about so we're bored. But if you look at. You know quarterbacks to compare him to. If you said Hey, when when drew locks done maybe five ten years, maybe beyond when he's all when it's all, said and done which Bronco's quarterback do you think he'll be more comparable to like in terms of success like an elway tie a plumber tra- Puka even, or or is he going to just fade and be one of the one of those names? One of those guys we remember, but maybe didn't. didn't move and shake a whole lot. Well, you know it's easier to kind of look around the NFL and say is. Is You know body types a little more like this? And this is who he reminds me out, but You know it's unfair to take anybody in in in. Take the words. John elway or Pay Manning and and say he's going to be like that I. mean those guys are generational type players and their their hall of fame type players so You know I would love to think he could do that, but that's that's a rarity but because he was drafted unlike. Plumber, who is a good player? You know he's you know. He's got a little more commitment from the organization, and really could sink in there to that next level quarterback and. You know have a good career. Maybe get them to the playoffs. Some who knows make run at Super Bowl, but I think the fact that he'll be here longer than some of those other guys you were talking about. maybe gives them a leg up, and and being maybe next level with conversation of quarterbacks play for the broncos. Exciting it'd be a fun ride for sure I mean hype will do one thing force. That'll get us excited either way, so we're looking forward to this season. Coach tells more that website pulled up to Fairchild qb training dot com like I, said I follow you on social media, and as always you, you're just always doing some great work. At quarterbacks of all ages, it seems like quarterbacks of all levels to yeah. Doing Youth football have some NFL guys and a lot fun I like working with them, and it's something I think you know I did for thirty four years as a full-time coach and hard to get that out of your system, so it's just got off the field. At two session this morning with a great group of kids, so really like doing it I think I help kids, and and again it's keeping me just the right amount of busy. Busy. I guess I've told you this before. We've heard a lot of great things for people even up here to that. That are familiar with what you're doing. And of course utilize your services as well so coach. Keep up the great work. We love being able to dial up the quarterback coach to give us some insight here, so we always appreciate it my friend. Yeah. There's a lot of fun I. Look Forward To doing it, so we'll talk again soon again. Wish everybody will you, too. My friend. That's Steve. Fairchild owner Fairchild quarterback training, he is, he's. He's a great guy of course coach for the Colorado. State Ramsey was an offensive coordinator for several years in the NFL, and he's developed quarterbacks, and he continues to develop quarterbacks at every single level, so he knows a lot about drew lock and listen he's. He said it's hard to find anything wrong with the GUY now. He's going back with his his time studying them up in Missouri. And what is ups offered? And he said Hey I'll. All admit it I mean he saying I'll admit I. I thought he was the first round. Guy I really did well. He's being talked about today after five games like he should have been a first round guy, you know the way we're treating him right now. The only guy that gets screwed out of that those drew lock. He's not making the money. The broncos don't care. That's perfect. If you can get a guy that you don't draft in the first round and you don't have to pay him that kind of money meaning you open it up to pay other guys around him for the first four years. Hey, that's that's great for Denver so drew lock someone who gets screwed up I still. Disagree with me. Guys I know a lot about football Steve Fairchild. So they know more than me, so whatever Mark Johnson, he knows more than me most. My insiders do Colefax except for. Those guys. All say the same things. You can't have too much of a good thing. I've still still holding on to this like hey, here's drew lock five games here's. Two wide receivers, we're GONNA. Go first and second round here you go. We got no last year we got now. Melvin Gordon, for you along with Gordon inside and we've got the better offensive line, and again I'm not so much complaining as all the weapons on the offensive side is, I, am the flat-out refusal to build upon a defense rather than just replace Fillon replaces what they did defensively offensively when all in. Who Wears the boggling to? There's a lot of weapons out there and I've continued. Ask that question. Where's the ball? Go into, and if it doesn't go to coralline Sutton and if it doesn't go to Melvin Gordon Veterans, now Sutton's veteran. Do we have complaints is they're going to be a pressure there so I I still wonder about that but you know you guys will take it from certainly take it from Steve. Fairchild to hey can't have too much of a good thing thirty three minutes after the hour. Let's see a couple of texts here at. the broncos lock in a different division for the next twelve years. It might be different. He might have some regular seasons success with the fact that he will probably be fighting for fifth-seeded best means playoff. Success may be tough. That's the thing I mean you do have to look at it, you know. elway ran the AFC west for the most part. Paid Manning ran the AFC west for the most part and even J. Plumber. When they were going to the playoffs they were they were doing well That is going to stand in front of drew lock success. That is going to keep him. That is going to make it harder for him to. It's already hard for him to become a manning elway typewriter. I mean that's already those of you. That are voting on that. I love you. But goodness you're you're. It's only. It's only Wednesday afternoon. And, what have you been drinking? That's my question. I. Put it up there. Because I like to see what happens. Twenty two percent of the whole are saying he's going to be more comparable to alway- when it's all said and done, nobody gets that. You're going to Puka only eleven percent or joining you. Twenty nine percent though I see I'm leaning. On leaning toward plumber now again if plummer would've been drafted by Denver. And you build build around him for ten years. Would plummer have been much much better than even some of the naysayers because I'm one of those guys, things. Plumber was tremendous I love Jake plumber I loved everything about the guy I loved his attitude, even though he flipped people off, I liked that I actually did. He had enough fans whereas if they were giving him a hard time, so did the whole hitching, but actually a big. You know what? And then he denied it, and then he admitted it. It was great. I know in an inside scoop on that story to a good friend of mine I won't say his name, but he worked within the BRONCOS ORGANIZATION AND He told me about that, they they. All kinda surrounded him and said Dude. Media's already got hold of this thing. This is before social media. Did you? Do you flip off the camera, did you? Did you flip some guy in the stands because the camera caught? You know what I. was that you my head? No, they go to the training room. They start like unwrapping the tape and all that stuff and then I guess jake kind of looks up goes. I did. I did flip them off I mean, but come on man. He was all over me wouldn't shut the hell up I got tired of it. So see and I liked that man I. don't want everybody to be like that but i. kind of have an I'm okay with that I can see drew lock pulling the bird out that somebody off. Thank! He's kind of Nice okay fine. Hey Man, not gonNA shake a fist. I could see that it makes little animator. A buzz light year would do. I'm leaning toward plumber and that's not. It's not like a slight. Because he? Four three years of being the you know. Unchallenged starting quarterback. He was a playoff quarterback. He led the Denver Broncos back to playoffs consistently when they'd missed out on consistent playoff berth since elway Brian Greasy brought him once maybe another time, but there was a drought for a while. And plummer was the guy that kind of brought the Broncos back up and hell they go to the AFC championship. He lost the steelers who went on to win the Super Bowl that year, two, thousand, five, six, whatever that was. Your thoughts thirty six minutes after the we'll take a quick break and get the latest on the local sports flash thirteen ten K. K. A. preps radio is northern. Colorado's home for the best highschool coverage. Start Your morning off right with your recommended daily intake of news, weather and traffic to get yourself up and running join. US Mornings, okay, all six to nine thirteen ten, KFI Windsor, mill tavern. Man, places great, you know. They got the the Bison Burger the bison steak, the Bison Tenderloin, wild game meat loaf game sausages. That that's that's the place Colefax. That's the place to go. Our listeners are starting to stop by their more and more kitchens open late. Well I guess for the for the last call thing. That's changed a little bit right now. We can't the last calls at ten o'clock for alcohol, they can still stay open past that and serve food. Okay, no booze, and after ten so their the reasoning for that I guess is that ambitions are down and people are. More likely to and stuff I. Guess Okay I guess my fear for that is. How well then if I'm sitting there nine thirty and I'm like yeah I could either go. And then the waitress comes over and says listen last calls at ten you want to. If you want another beer now. Okay fine. Yeah! Put another order so like no now suddenly am I. Am I slamming Beers, not me other people that are more responsible And a short amount of time, so I can fit it in at ten narrow or because again. Let's face it Sports Guy Colfax. There's a lot of baseball games. They're going to go past ten o'clock. There's a lot of Monday night. Football Games, and things like that are going to go past ten o'clock and I hear Denver I. Hear a lot like we were at the Blake Street travel last year. I think they're fighting it. mean. You're hurting your just continue to hurt. These bars in these restaurants and these brew. You just continue to stop on. Don't think about the unintended consequences of this Brady. It's tough man. It's not your place as a citizen to think about these things so bad form though it's crazy. Man Like the setting is very upsetting. So again, I last call his last. Is it like. Is it madness midnight? Yeah. So. I don't know, but liquor stores will be wide open. In House Party no problem. Yeah, that's what people are going to do. Man! Why not? It's just like when you said hey liquor store liquor, just shutting down what happened? Mass gatherings at liquor stores, and and yet I still have no response to this, but we have protests going and both sides. I saw I saw you have the black lives matter protests you have the blue lives matter protests. They're all going on, and we're not talking about that stuff. We're talking about small breweries and Taverns and Places that don't have more than twenty people at the bar and there were all social distancing. About you but I don't go to a bar and start running all over everybody now. Really I mean, and and again I I saw. This summer's party it's like yeah, but protesting and gathering thousands and mass numbers and is. Like I said man I want to respect everybody here, but you're disrespecting. Some of these hard hard working, are owners of restaurants and Taverns, and like friends over Windsor Mill Tavern. And I just hurts. Your makes me mad and I hurt for him. It's a terrible so. I wish you all the best to lock and I hope you guys. Can All figure this out and keep fighting the good fight on this, but that's a. that's frustrating that one's tough. You. You just keep setting these rules in place. It's really messing with restaurants. And taverns, and and that's what we do as a society. We go out. We like to go out. We like to go out and have a cocktail or two and. That's. Is that a crime apparently now it is. So. Tough tough stuff. I of Intersex Line, three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine six. We'll keep supporting you. Windsor Mill Tavern, no question about it. Which Bronco's quarterback will be more comparable to in terms of career success. Colfax is going all in on the trump, Yuka thing. Well I made you. Put that up there and then I actually voted for our. So you're saying that drew lock is to be the second. Coming is what they call it. You're going to be the next John Elway I. Think he at least has that? Potential that the cards are right. For that TAP. Are you looking at this vote now. Did it change thirty? One percent is now the majority. Of The forgettable QB's. You Got Hogan's now. Very confident in drew locks future that he's just going to be a regular guy. When I use the thinking part of my brain, and it's like odds. Just the straight up. Odds would say yes I. Bet on that on one of the forgettable I mean that's the most likely thing that's going to happen and some people are mad at that. All of them forgettable clear. These guys, but that's who they are. I mean I'll remember him, but a lot of people don't know who you know. Some of these guys, the Trevor Siemian are you gonNA, Remember that ten fifteen years some Wilson won't. Who has that one guy used quarterback for the Broncos? That one time that year yeah, that's exactly right. That's exactly who. The guy drafted right and. Brock osweiler something like that I mean. Those guys are all we remember it now, but you're thinking of Gus Farrah Steve. Beuerlein those kind of guys Danny Kanell. Those. Guys just listing again. We're talking. The there is a difference between drafted guys, but at the end of the day we're. We're seeing whose careers going to be comparable to and I tend to lean toward jake plumber and I. Think some people think that's a slight, but imagine if plummer was drafted by the broncos. And they built that offense completely around him from the get-go rather than picked him up as I think it was a free agent signing I could be wrong could be. It could have been a trade. But I don't know it's it's nuts. It's absolutely nuts when you think about what he could look like what what could be Hogan's are saying now. He's going to be one of the forgettable guys. Again we're talking about a ten year span here or more, and it's almost impossible to think about predict, but. Okay let's say Steve Fairchild was right that all these weapons that are in place for drew locks offense. He'll be able to utilize their fullest because he is. He'll have the mind to do that. Yeah, I mean hell of a solid first year and that's his first real. Year of success, and then it can only go up from there right. Yeah I mean. Who knows what that looks like well dicksons bringing up mahomes. Let me let me say this to you. I mean I'm saying. mahomes transcend is going to transcend the again. and. That could be one of the greatest quarterbacks we ever see. If drew lock finds a way to steal. A division or to championship from homes, and then uses and use that as a catapult to go win a title does that now make his name even greater because of the quarterback that stands in his way. Now. It's not just like he's going one on loan mahomes, but you're going to have to go blow for blow. You're going to have to go, Matt. Tit for tat. You'RE GONNA have to match him. And if you can do that. The maybe we're not talking about plummer. Maybe we're not even talking about away. Because the challenge furniture lock is far greater. Than maybe even. Manning who did many Evan the division to worry about Philip Rivers. Was it Alex Smith, majority of his time with the chiefs. Derek Carr Raiders Quarter forgettable quarterbacks. Manning didn't have a lot of other quarterbacks to have to go back and forth with. Forty eight minutes after the hour Colefax, take a quick break. We'll We'll get to what's on TV tonight. Yes, more more sports on the tube for you. We'll be right back. Know cone now. Weekdays at four northern Colorado's voice. Thirteen ten KFI K.. Catch her. Taste started right with today's news.

ESPN so you got New, York and Washington and you got. You Got US in West, Game San Francisco and the dodgers. Thursday night eight o'clock. Nine baseball there Thursday night of baseball cannot wait. Finally here it's going to be. It was strange last night. It's going to be strange. You know watching these games, but I was laughing and Dan. The Dan Patrick show yesterday they took a poll and they said twenty to thirty percent of the people voting said that you know if there's not going to fans in the stands. They don't even want sports to start at all. So you'd rather zero sports then. You. See that's at all or nothing mentality that I'm so frustrated with. You know you can't have. You can't get to all if you don't start somewhere and you know we get were getting. Those guy you know goes people on our facebook page. Colfax keep commenting. No sports until the economy starts well. This is part of that. This is how you started back. This is how you start it. Yes, if we could all just say virus, go away everything back to normal. We would all take that. I think a lot of us are wanting that right most of us are, but we can't. So we're going to take it and how they adjust this thing you know. The NBA has got to do a bubble. Baseball's gotTa do no fans in the stands. Football they're not? They're not doing a preseason. NHL's some similar right as as NBA so we. Were at this point. Where if you WANNA get to all? You gotTa start having a little bit of it. You know and that's that's where we are, and that's part of that economy that you're talking about. All right that's going to do it for us. What Fun Show today? Thanks to mark Johnson, the voice of the Colorado Buffaloes Steve Fairchild the coach talk and drew lock with us, and Colfax is saying maybe trump Yuka elway. For drew lock. He at least has the path to get. It's got the path so if he fails then he's going to be breezy. Up say a plumber. It's a safe pick, and that's the whole against their most going forgettable quarterback, so it's crazy. We'll be back out on a Thursday good night northern Colorado. KF K.

June 10 Hour 1 Broncos To Take AFC West? | Drew Lock League MVP?

"I. Clock our good afternoon Colorado. Colfax on the other side of the bulletproof glass. Getting set for another edition. Of the whole show. Live from the auto collision Specialist Studios I events text line, three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine six. Marquez law from the Denver Post shared a tweet moments ago, saying hey, those of you. Getting all worked up about baseball having a fifty game season sixty game season seventy game season. Clearly, you're taking things too seriously. In in this world we live in when it comes to corona virus. What's going on with George Floyd? I can't go there man. Faxes as sports guy. Isn't this what we sign up for to take this all so seriously? Now we all know deep down. It's not life or death. We get out of shape. We get irritated. We get frustrated. We get mad, but then we get up and we go to work and we do our things. Yes we're going to take it seriously because if you're gonNA, do it. To it right? If Major League baseball is just GONNA. Put together a forty game fifty game season. And we're we're supposed to just. Take that and get into it and then we have a champion. And then it's GonNa screw up and I don't know if baseball's wills much won't screw up the next season, but my point is with everything I mean if we're just going to squeeze everything together just so we can make something happen. Then we get to the point where. You're you're screwed up next season to don't do the double asterisk. That's all I ask. And it's okay to take it a little bit seriously. In a sports way, it's Colfax I. Say yesterday. Sports to me is the most important unimportant thing, and that makes it extremely important. We have to have it. We gotta have our outlets and this is one of those outlets for us. I venit text line, three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine six. Well Call cowards leading the brigade here you hear calling cow heard on thirteen ten K of k every single weekday. But we're talking about drew lock yesterday in all the hype. And what do you think most people kind of Said? I'm pretty skeptical. Most of the whole again. I'm pretty skeptical. MR, double, down on that take yesterday about drew lock and he basically thinks not only does he think drew locks the real deal he thinks the broncos are in for a heck of a season coming up, and the chiefs should be worried, so go to drew locks rookie year. Like Lamar Jackson doesn't get a chance until late. His numbers over a two to one touchdown interception ratio seventy three picks, sixty four percent completion rate better than homes, better than whence better than Jackson and his quarterback rating rounded up to ninety. He's got better stats. All of them and Denver because of smart drafting has two good running backs, three excellent receivers and I believe a pro bowl potential tight end and defensive coach keeps them in every game so I. I think drew lock at fifteen is outrageous i. think he's the pop guy in the league this year whence popped Lamar popped mahomes popped. I think it's him I. Think he's a huge talent. I don't disagree with everything that he's saying. Now. He's saying now. Let me just correct correct. Correct this Colfax, do I dare? Correct the heard, he said the run game is pretty solid. Due to the draft, none of their running backs top two were drafted by the Denver Broncos, so let me just say that Melvin. Gordon was signed as a free agent. Philip Lindsey was as we know undrafted so I just. Wanted to mention that, throw that out there now. There's been some decent drafting again. Filling up that offensive side broncos trying to correct being one of the worst offenses in the league last year. So they went all in. We'll find out if it works and if it works, I'll shut up about it. I would have just liked to see the second round. Pick go to a corner. That's it. Not much to ask. That would have been a nice addition to this defense. Are We. Are we getting a little too excited about Iraq? I mean yesterday I said. He's the franchise quarterback. I said that. But. Let's be fair. and He Dalton was a franchise quarterback for the bengals. Was Andy Dalton ever upper echelon with the ever top five. No, there is so you. Hooligans were texting yesterday. Saying Franchise quarterbacks to no, that's too much. You can't say yet. You don't don't kid yourself. You don't have to be top ten quarterback in the league. Or even special to be labeled as a franchise quarterback. Andy Dalton who was pretty good. But never really tops. Was a was labeled as the franchise quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals. So when I said yesterday the Yes the way the broncos are building around, and he showed me enough in five games. Go for it. He's the franchise quarterback. Let's go ahead and label. The guy gives gives him that label and away we go. But that doesn't mean I think he's going to be Patrick Mahomes Lamar Jackson. Pretty, lofty Colefax. I mean he's car. COWHERD is calling his shot and I love that. He's definitely getting US talking. But I think it's a little. A little premature. I, I'm one of those guys that Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes. Sa-, not only unique skill set, but. They're monsters in the league. Lamar Jackson has an ability that you know we. We haven't seen since Michael Vick and vic even said Lamar is GonNa, blow up, blow out what I did, and he's GonNa. Blow out, blow that out of the water. And I know I got texters already. Brady's on that Lavar Jackson Bandwagon I think the dude is absolutely special. And I know the question is. Can he stay healthy? He can't do this forever and that. Well, we'll see and when when if that ever happens, it happens. I have any text line three, one, nine, nine six. He believes that drew lock is going to storm onto the scenes seeing this year. He'll be the dark horse to win the MVP. I, just I. I'm excited about it. I think the broncos. I think again, the schedule lends itself to Denver they go eleven and five, but I think a lot of moving parts are contributing factors there he's. Did. He say one bad thing about this team Noa fat. He believes he has a chance to be a pro bowler. Three great right wide receivers who two of them? We haven't seen on an NFL football field. Or an NFL game. And he's talking with the running backs Melvin Gordon was. What did GIRAL Casey? Say. He was discarded by the chargers. He went out held out for a great deal. They didn't pay him and nobody else paid him. I am I know I'm sounding like negative guy. Right now I like Melvin Gordon. I think Melvin Gordon's unfortunately and fortunately Melvin. Gordon is going to force. Philip Lindsay out of town I. Truly believe that and I hate that. I'm rooting for the opposite. I want to be wrong on this one. Normally I want to be right about everything Colfax. But I want to be wrong on this one. So I like Melvin Gordon Jerry Judy I. Think's going to be really good. But I gotta give it a few games before we can get into that. They have three great wide receivers. They have a pro bowl caliber tied into no fan. That's a little too soon for me. To say especially on the no offense thing. He believes that. Drew Lock is going to storm onto the scene. Kind of like what we saw Patrick mahomes after his rookie year. You've got a couple of games and then boom. It gave over. He's the guy in the. He didn't say this in that clip. But. He also said he wouldn't be surprised if the Broncos beat the chiefs. And Win The division the AFC west this year. So. That's our power to play sports poll question. We've probably asked it before, but now it's in the national spotlight. Who's winning the AFC west? Whole against? You're excited I. Get it, but you're not drinking the KOOL aid that. That our beloved cowherd. Is is is is dealing out to you. More than fifty percent of the whole against the chiefs, and that's the way it should be. That's the way will be forty seven percent of the whole against saying the chiefs. Thirty two percent, saying the broncos eleven percent, saying the chargers and the raiders are coming in dead. Last Vegas isn't going to change their luck Colefax. Apparently they'll be stuck at. Got Five Point Eight. Was that you? Listen I like it. It's national media. Putting a highlight on. On the Broncos I love some of the Denver media to there, so you know what hurt. Oh, I've been saying drew locks going to be the greatest, and now just because heard, says well, because you have millions of people listening to your show. If. You have that then you don't have to worry. People are going to know what you say and they're gonNA. Hold you to it. It's Okay I've said some things to that I've heard from. Colin Coward but I'm like you know what that just reiterates my point. or it differs from opinion versus text line, three, one, nine, nine six. Is. Is! Drew Lock are. 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. Manning Gian territory I don't even know if I'm raised that he's going to be up and Jake Plumber territory. Well. I'll tell you what I wasn't a huge plummer fans. PLUMMER! No. No. Well. 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. That you know. After, he flipped him off. I, just Kinda just lost. Respect for the guy so laws are noted nobody flip the bird to the. Or you're done with them, right? You're done it. Might Flip. Bad. Double Flip, you might get them with the double bird. Yeah really. Yeah never that you don't WanNa see that one after that one. Are you voting for the Broncos to win AFC west? You know what I'm going to say, not yet They're Kinda. Show me what they can do, but I'll tell you. I'm excited for for for the season now. Yeah, Oh, definitely excited can't wait. 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 records. Healthy, pretty healthy. Mix in the Ritz crackers. I did yeah got to do that right? What can address it? Did you just go green and crackers, or did you? Did you throw some dressing on their? Through a little, little hot sauce into the hot sauce on the salad. lobster man. You come up with some stuff there. I like it though. Man Take Care of yourself and we'll talk to you soon. I'm ready for high school football. High, school football training camp coverage thirteen thirteen. Don't think loved ones on the docket yet, but I believe they are being considered at this stage chalance to do it what you gotta call the call. The higher ups man. Bang that drum let's get. Let's get love on the docket. Plus they're also doing some work on a football field to okay, what are they add in there like? ASTROTURF? Oh Sweet! That's that's even better. Appreciate you. Eight for sure eighteen minutes after the hour. Who's winning the AFC? You're going to go over. It's GonNa, be I mean we're well over fifty percent here, saying chiefs. It's not happening this year. So you can get excited and I. You know the season. We're all begging for football. We're all begging to start. See some of these storylines play out, but I I this. The chiefs might go ahead and double-whammy this thing they might go ahead. Win Back to back. I actually liked the chiefs in the buccaneers going to the Super Bowl Yeah. I believe I, believe in Tom Brady that much and this guy who's a part of our. Story of the day presented by. FM S. Bake. Making made simple, I am ready to see drunk. I missed grow. I forgot how much I missed wrong, but every time I see the guy play. See Clips I. Hear Him Talk. The World Needs Rob, Gronkowski and Tom Brady has back I am all in on the bucks on the NFL, on the NFC side of things. I think they're going to be a very good football team. Their defence was good last year by Guy Shack. Barrett's there. They upgraded that quarterback position even though Jameis Winston, said historically, he's the greatest quarterback. What does that mean? Historically I'm the greatest quarterback. No you can't just say historically. Historically Colefax is the best producer historically. Well. That's that's fact I. Guess, so, that's that is. It historically that in fact in his case, it might have been better. Say Like I. Plan on being the best quarterback. Something like this based on stats and his win loss record. His even historically, that's not accurate now, so no, I mean you can say historically John always the greatest quarterback to ever do this, but then okay. We're GONNA start comparing stats, but Jamie's. You don't have it meant. Do Gifted I think he's phenomenal, but he has an interception bug. And he and he has Brett. Farve had an interception bug, but he overcame that with everything else I mean. He was far better at everything else then he was throwing interceptions. James's a fifty fifty guy. He's GonNa. Throw, the best pass you've ever seen. He's gonNA throw terrible interception. Brett Farve is was a gunslinger. I mean he really started that whole thing. Anyway the good. News Tight End Rob Gronkowski course. He's just been a member of the buccaneers for a little more than a month. He's already making a huge impact. He got word that a fire broke out may sixteenth at Blake High, school in Tampa the fire destroyed an athletic storage shed filled with nearly all of the school's football equipment pads, field, markers, pylons, tackling dummies and other game day, equipment, or approximately eleven thousand dollars, according to Tampa Bay fire rescue, and the loss devastated the program Grog. Grog in the bucks found out about it, their foundation reached out to the school to see how they can help and they are going to replace everything Tampa. Bay. BUCCANEERS tweeted this out. Hey, Blake, high school! We heard about the fire that destroyed your storage shed full of football equipment. Guess what the GRONK Nation Youth, Foundation and the Bucks Foundation are replacing it all. Love that great story love to hear positive. Franc's thrown out the hair. He's got the beard he's got the gigantic nineteen eighty-four shades I love it. Everything about Gronk is special. He is going to do some special things coming back, watch out. I know you guys think I'm in love with Tom. Maybe you're right but Brady GRONK. It's it's it's Jordan and pippen. It's everything watch out. Tampa Bay is going to be lethal, great positive story there and please don't be that person comments on eleven. Thousand Dollars says that's all you're doing. They didn't have to do anything they. They're gonNA. Pay I mean it's not that much. Colefax but it's an amazing gesture. Can you believe that there are people that actually do this when you donate? It doesn't matter if it's eleven thousand if it's eleven million, there are always going to say what that's it. YOU'RE A billionaire. Frustrating! I believe there's people like that. They're they're. They're out there. They're called trolls. It's a sad thing, but this is a good store. Yeah, good job Gronk am I my. Cowherds going all in on the drew lock thing and I'm going all in on Tom Brady. TAP, Peyton manning did for the Broncos don't Oh new team. I mean I want to be there with you with Brady but. You've been brought before though he was on your fantasy team a few times. He went. For four weeks it was working. Killing and then kind of faded. Because mahomes came onto the scene. I don't think Brady's GONNA couple years ago. I don't think he's going to break records or anything but I think he's going to have a really good year. It's GONNA win game. Yes, and they have a defense. They have defense and they have some good skill set players so I. I liked Tampa Bay. Tampa Bay in Kansas, city is probably GonNa be the Super Bowl. You guys can go ahead and get your tickets ready and everything I. Don't know if you can go to the Games yet, but we'll see, but that's what I like. I I know upsets, broncos, fans, but But the West belongs to Kansas City at least one more year twenty three minutes after the hour on the rocks, liquor brings us our game game of the week. This one's from crabtree brewing in Greeley deerfield Strawberry Blonde. Ale pickup selections from crabtree or any other of your favorite. Oh beverages and use the drive through open until midnight. Their lobby is now open. Nine o'clock to nine PM. I believe again for your shopping pleasure. That's on the rocks liquor. Make your next celebration on the rocks. Telling, you heard about him right here on the whole show powered by energy all right when we come back. Cowherd, he's hyping. It drew lock. Are you guys buying it? We asked the question already. But we're in the national spotlight here with the Broncos and drew lock may be pulled off an upset chiefs fans Dixon I mean. Are you shaking your boots, or you say for one more year. We'll be right back. You're listening to the hall's show. Powered by PD energy and thirteen ten Kfi am brady will be back after the break catch catcher day studied right with up-to-date news, weather and sports mornings with Gail Six am to nine PM weekdays on thirteen ten Kfi K.. Jeff Lender head men's basketball coach at the University of Wyoming Cowboys and you're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten KFI. took. Works on sway. I down fifteen yard. That the fullback second eight locks. This. He puts down to Hamilton Again I. In. DENVER TOUCHDOWN Goes in motion block. Keeps it rolling right throwing. Drew, lock getting a lot of exposure the last couple of days we talked about him quite a bit yesterday. That was our power. Play sports poll question but you get this prediction from cowherd again we air the heard here weekdays starting at two o'clock right after this program gives you a different shared. A lot of people can't catch that program. We found in the morning, so we carry it in the afternoon. At two o'clock, so tune in. See what he's going to say, but he's high on the broncos. He has the broncos maybe pulled off the upset. They they win. The AFC west he thinks drew lock could be the dark horse MVP so he is very high on drew lock. It's very high on this broncos team right now. I tell you what I mean if he's right John More than saves his job, he turned it. All around finds a way you know. Hey, you upgrade your offense. It's interesting. Maybe he goes against his instinct. elway went goes against his instinct doesn't start filling up that defense and clearly. Whatever was was happening the last few years. Wasn't working. But how many times do we say it? Not a lot of things are going to work. You don't have that. quarterback position figured out and plain and simple Denver didn't have it figured out. Once Peyton. Manning left wants Peyton manning retired. They failed to do so now. They got their guy now. They're happy about him. He will be the franchise quarterback. That's my prediction, but then again. That doesn't mean he's breaking. Every record known to man that that doesn't mean he's even the top five or top ten. That just means he's. He's a formidable formidable quarterback for the next five plus seasons I mean what what are the franchise quarterback? What's the definition? I'm GONNA say guy. It gives you five plus seasons five or more. Maybe it tends too much to ask for. But if you're going five six seven seasons, and you're the you're clearly the starting quarterback, and you're helping you get to the playoffs and all that. Maybe you're not upper-echelon mature close, and he could be I'm not. Don't don't mistake. Here I'm not saying he won't be. But right now what I know is that he's a franchise quarterback. No way in Hell. Am I ready to say that this guy? He's not going to be an MVP next year. He's not that good yet. He is not as good as Patrick Mahomes, he is not as good Lamar Jackson there Russell Wilson Tom Brady. There are a lot of quarterbacks out there. That are better than drew lock and we'll talk about quarterbacks in the NFL coming up a little bit later. Let's start looking at the AFC west. I, mean, is there any reason to believe the chief? Scott worse than the broncos got better. In the off season I actually think the chiefs. They did something in the draft that they do or what Andy Reid never does. We'll talk about that. We'll talk about the chiefs and what? It's GonNa take. Is there any real legitimate reason to talk about the chargers and the raiders being competitive in this division, the chargers trying to kind of refined themselves thirty one minutes after the hour. We'll switch. Switch Gears, see you basketball. They were top fifteen team in the country. At one point last season they ended up losing the final six games now. ESPN still had them going to march madness because I think they won twenty one twenty two games actually one bracket expert had them beating Florida and the first one I joked with tad boyle about it when I talk to mark Johnson. What went wrong. And what do they need to have have happened next year to keep it from happening again. We'll talk to him, but first let's get the latest on the local sports flash. Thirteen ten KFI preps radio is northern Colorado's home for the past high school coverage. This is Matt Rave. America's first news. You're listening to the whole show with my Guy Brady Hall. Thirty six minutes after the hour. Welcome back to the show. The Eaten Country Club in you guessed it eaten. Their mission at the country. Club is to provide at a reasonable cost to its members and enjoyable golfing experience on a well-maintained course quality dining an opportunity for social exchange and a professional staff. Check about talk about becoming a member. I know we're trying to get the group. Trying to Colfax and maybe this is the first you're hearing of it, but were. We were talking this morning. Actually so it's not like it's you know these big plans were made without you, so don't worry. I wouldn't dare having you out there. Because you and I make each other look good. You gotta be out there with me, we're. We're talking about getting the getting the group out there pretty soon. I'm in yeah. Yeah I mean I guess I don't really like my reasoning for being there just to make you feel better. Well in fairness, I would probably make you feel better to. Some solitary. Yeah, that's. I'm not saying I'm looking for a bad golfer to be out. There I'm looking for a golfer. That's going to do about. Some some yeah, you're GONNA. Have some screw ups like me all right? You're going to skip that ball off the tee box once in a while, and that's okay, then you're gonNA. You'RE GONNA launch one a few times. Yes, that's what that's what I need out there. because. You also give me hope. Telling you last year I thought was a ringer. You know he's you're saying. I'm not very good I. Two or three holes your lighting it up and then, and then you know kind of fell apart. Thanks faded, but it's kind of how you were with bowling so I think if we can cut down. All the Games could be undefeated. I, so I guess so. Try to get out there. I got I gotTA gotTA. Get some new clubs because I don't have any. Borrow him. Last year I had a set years ago. And I just left him out at the farm. Where we're grew up and you know things. Dad moved out all the stuff happened and somewhere along the lines. They're just not. They're not around anymore so Austin the move. Probably Dad Dad probably pond him off. Golf Clubs of award winning whole show we got. We could just share my my yeah. Yeah that's fine. That's fine from like nineteen eighty six, but whatever euros born so it's a special year to me perfect. I'm fine with just giving just give me one club and I'll go around. Make that something that hit the ball with. Anything man sick. I will figure out something, but we're going to get out there that you can check out. Their website eaten C. C dot net eaten dot net. Text Line three, one, nine, nine, six, not able to get a hold of Mr Mark Johnson the voice of the Colorado Buffaloes. But. You. This was a weird thing man, I mean see. You had one of the strangest basketball seasons. To start the year. We thought they're going to be good. Keep this in mind though. A lot of insider said yeah, this year could be good, but next year is is where we want is where we think that this team is really gonNA. Make some noise, and that really depends on McKinley right to. got the, fairly new rule where you can, you can declare for the draft, but keep your eligibility. If you're still obviously eligible, you can declare for the draft to see where you might go or what? What not? Not? Necessarily that? Even just see what scouser saying, and then you learn enough about it at the combine and all that stuff where they say. The experts come up to you? Basically say e. you're not going to get drafted this year. You Go, give it another year and you might crack that second round. Or Hey Dude, you're game you got it. You're the mean you're going second for sure. But you probably GonNa go first, so that's more what he's doing. Odds are he'll be back. which is a big big component? You know that's a big if for this team. But you look at last season. I mean they start out the gates. They won the first eight games of the season. They beat tough teams I'm. They'd be Arezzo state on that first game they were in Shanghai. In. They lost to Kansas. They lost northern Iowa to decent teams though. But then they kind of progress. They be Oregon on national television. Oregon was a top ten team at that point, see wins. That was a fun game to watch. And then they found A. Big Games. They beat Dayton down the road. And so this was a good basketball team. No question about it. They were finding ways to win very difficult games. They Dayton in overtime. Of course, we know Dayton was it. They've finished the season I think at thirteen. So some great team. At the time they were thirteen and they finished higher than that, but. Then they hit this wall. That just destroyed their season. Would they do? They lost okay, so it was five I I, kept saying six Colfax wrong. They lost their last five games, but these were teams. That weren't great. You know they lose to UCLA. Cal Stanford they lost to Utah overtime in the last regular season game all games that most people said they're going to win and they couldn't do it then they get into the in the PAC twelve tournament. Obviously, they get to play one of their games. Before the pandemic breaks down which I think that they would have, they probably would have been okay with everything. Shut down before they get to that game. They lose badly eighty two to sixty eight. Know. I can't explain it. We were GONNA talk to mark a little bit about that, but. Mentally how do you? How do you beat? Oregon, and how do you beat? Dayton and then you lose five in row. Including losing to you know. Not a great PAC twelve team in the first round of Washington state. How do you lose five in a row and it just get booted out of that tournament like that? Even though again. They didn't finish the tournament. mean again spn the bracket tallest has for the most part. If you go, look it up. See you go into the. Getting into the first round and beating Florida, that was what a lot of the popular wiseguys thought was going to happen, so. I wasn't sure I wasn't sure this team was going to get. In twenty. One eleven was their record I've seen them win more games and not go. But you had the marquee victories did beat Oregon you did be Dayton. Maybe the Oregon game washes out. And they had organ on the ropes when they were at Oregon before Valentine's Day. But they just couldn't finish. And I don't know if mentally. That game kind of stuck out there for them. Because they they they got to this point where they would win big games. They couldn't follow it up. And then. Then! They just got to the point where they couldn't win any games. You know those games weren't necessarily big, but they couldn't. The couldn't They couldn't find find their way back. And we talked to Tad Boyle last week. About. What's you know there are some guys to get excited about to? keyshawn Barthelemy they're excited about him to see what he does. And we'll go ahead and try getting mark on a cellphone here in just a moment. See if we can get him on and see what is it? GonNa take. I see you to kind of bounce back. I mean that's a mental. That's a rough way to into season. I mean I have a lot of confidence in Tad. Boyle and I'm really hopeful that he can get. This thing turned around 'cause. There's GonNa. Be Some pressure on TAT. Certainly, First event is line three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine six. You look at the season I. Mean he's. He's always Tad's always expected I. believe it's kind of expected that he goes to March madness. I think anything less than that is considered a failure in. Is that unfair for Tad maybe so far, but he's he's that good of a coach. Where you know the better you are, the more pressure I mean you look around Colorado you look around even up into Wyoming with guy like jeff lender. There's not there's an expectation for Wyoming that's just. Let's put together some wins. There's an expectation at issue for Niko medved to compete in the conference. And maybe get into getting into the dance. It'd be awesome, but competing although after last season you maybe the. Maybe. The expectations are starting to rise up a little bit, but you are going to be losing. Niko, Carvalho. Yet so much talent though for Colorado state, but all that you know UNC. You're expected to compete in the sky. Suck going to be a failure if they don't go to the big dance. Tad Boyle one hundred percent expected to go, Danson. And, so there's going to be pressure on him to do this next year if he doesn't make it. Based on this roster. That supposed to be better. Because everybody's getting a year older. You gotTA. Wonder if this is this is. They. Love Tad so it's hard to say that, but. You're losing guys like Shane gallium and. Big to Tyler Bay I mean these are. These are decent players for sure forty five minutes after the hour. We're GONNA. Take a quick break. Can the buffs rebound after a rough into the season? Yeah, Time's going to tell, but again I root for Tad. Boyle. He is a great basketball. Mind truly does care about that program, and that's his dream job, so we'll see. They're supposed to be better next year. Then even this year. I got a twenty dollar gift certificate to give away for the Windsor.

Power Play Sports poll question of the day. Who's winning the AFC west? Chiefs Broncos. Raiders and chargers are really in this mix here. What's IT GONNA look like ultimately next year and you got. Yeah, we talked about it. Colin Cowherd, national, talking heads, starting to take stock into this team, but The chiefs still have those weapons. You have. Patrick, Mahomes, it starts there and you finishes with a whole lot of people I mean they are. This is a team. That's never out there that good. They were I mean they. They were down twenty four points against Houston. And just ended up winning that game like it was nothing. I would imagine they're going to jump right back out there. And looking at the running back side of things. I, mean they're. They're gonNA improved big time in that position. You know they. This running back situation saying hey, we want to get a little bit better there and you've got lsu's Clyde Edwards and I. think that that again is going to be something huge for this team. Here's a little note. On the night of the draft chiefs GM Bread Vich sent Patrick Mahomes a text message, asking who the quarterback wanted the team to spend their first pick on. That's when you have clout man. Mahomes was asked to send three names and the first he replied back was Lsu's Clyde Edwards layer the rookie running back showed his dynamic ability, and he was just one of those guys. He saw film that love he loved. And is working in the passing game to a guy out of the backfield that Mahomes GonNa love it. So three down back. Andy Reid said. Edwards is a better back then, Brian Westbrook. Who He knows well used to coach Brian Westbrook. Westbrook was kind of one of those running backs to that was a dual threat so I I look at that. That's just another weapon now. He, still have Damian Williams, still in the Backfield, so the rushing game should be improved. You gotTa love their wide receivers. tyreek Hill Sammy. Watkins you've got a young. Guy McColl Hartman. That position is going to be solid. Travis Kelsey at tight end I. mean the list goes on and on. This offense has weapons. And are. You try I've said this from the beginning. You want to beat the chiefs in the division. Do you hope you outrun them? Can You Outrun Patrick Mahomes and arguably the best tight end of the game, and arguably the best wide receiver. Maybe do oh, but certainly arguably the wide receiver, the game and Tyreek Hill, certainly the fastest. And I worry about your upgrade factor. You didn't upgrade your quarterback position you swapped Aj. You swapped Chris Harris for AJ. Essentially you didn't trade, but that's what it looks like. So you better hope, Colin cowherd is right. That drew lock. corleones Sutton Jerry Judy. Caja Hamster. Melvin Gordon Philip, Linzie and Noah Fan who another guy. That coward on can keep up. I mean if you just go pound for pound who you take, it Cortlandt Sutton or tyreek hill. Sammy Watkins maybe. Maybe I go with coralline Sutton. Running back Gimme. broncos, running backs, but everything else Patrick Patrick mahomes taken him tight end. Kansas City is way better than that position right now Travis Kelsey. I mean in the core right now. Wide receivers is probably better because it's you know Sammy. Watkins entire kill, and you're looking at coralline sudden. WHO's proven? Jerry Judy first round pick, but he still unproven. That's still that that's. That will be the rhetoric around him until we see it on the field. Now, defensively, like I've said a million times. Are, you did you build your defense to stop Patrick Mahomes. And the answer is no you kind of just reloaded it. You're filling it up again. You're getting. Bradley Chubb Back. which will be huge? But with von Miller, losing a step and He did he lost his step last year. As much as I like Vaughn as much as I think, he's a top five guy easily for the broncos. If not better, he'll go down in history as a hall of Famer will go down in history as One of if not the best defensive players the broncos have ever had. But he lost the step. So you WanNa talk about winning the division. You better hope right off the bat that drew lock and company can keep up with Kansas City. because. They're not gonNA. Stop Them. They couldn't stop him last year and you didn't do anything to really fix that. You swapped out Derek Casey he swapped out. Chris Harrison AJ boy. Eh, you drafted a couple of guys that may or may not be on the team may or may not make significant impact, so you didn't do anything necessarily better to try to slow the chiefs down, you basically said we trust rule lock. We're going to give him weapons. Let's keep up with the chiefs and I don't think this season that model works. Does that offense improve to the point where they can really start to put up some points and they're not. You know bottom five anymore whatever they were about him five out of ten. Yeah I believe that I think the the talent. Is there Noah Fatten withdrew lock showed us a much better I mean he was. He was starting to roll. Garrett Bowles was actually better. When drew lock was in think he does better with the faster mobile quarterback. Guy, that can really move up around the pocket you know Joe. FLACCO has got the statue thing going. Maybe Bulls just doesn't work there. But I'm still not buying into the whole. You know if you can't beat them. Join them, so let's let's build up that offense and just try to mimic and mirror what they do. We'll get into track. Meet with them. Does that work in two years. I guess we'll see. But I still fear the the lack of build on your defensive side. And if you don't build on the defensive side to keep up with this team. Don Don't know new says. What are we listening to Kansas chief am? Calmed down on the fan boy hitting me. Who won the Super Bowl last year new? If you want fake news, about the Broncos, then you got plenty of stations that just want to go and talk about a team. That's GONNA. Win The super bowl. That chiefs are the team you're supposed to be. Few. Don't want to talk about it then. You're not looking at the real issue. The real issue is the chief stand in front of the Broncos for the AFC west. You don't like it. Find a way to beat them and right now the Broncos are hoping that young offense can match the chiefs. That's just the facts. If you're scared of it, you should be. MAHOMES is legit. We'll be right back.

AP Laboratory - Chiefs-Broncos game preview (Ep. 99)

"What's up everybody? Thanks for joining us today. This is the AP laboratory it's eight-game preview edition addition getting you ready for chiefs broncos party to very excited to talk about this one here to help me talk about this game. I find him on twitter at chief in Carolina all the way from Carolina Matt Lane Polo. My friend how are you a good begging sure. I I do all my preparations. In just in case of the broncos wind and somehow shake up the entire division like coralline Sutton's telling us does does Cortlandt site and think that they can instill win the West. It's a big shakeup if you go from like third in the division to slightly less third in the division. That's what he's aiming for war but also with US Craig's out platinum on twitter barley hop than big. I'm doing fantastic. I saw a ESPN playoff machine that. Hey broncos fan had run earlier today that was explaining how they can make the playoffs at eight and the various scenarios that needed to happen guys. It's a very very long logic train. So that should tell you where the Broncos are with Cortlandt Sutton statements and what the fans are saying there they should just be grasping onto drew. Lock now and looking forward to next year but they're still living in the now so actually. The cheese crops told them hopefully. We can grasp on the drew lock. But we'll talk about the defense later. We got to talk about the offense. I just I just refer shake things up like the division. No rundown is locked and loaded so three story storylines on offense. We'll start with this chiefs had some success in the first half against the New England patriots. Matty can they build off that success. Yes certainly hope so. I think once you get rid of that kind of I drive where the Patriots came out and they look to really throw off. Patrick Mahomes a little bit. Just the way they were playing ignores Less man coverage than we've seen all year and we especially saw from the Patriots last year led to an easy interception for the Patriots from Patrick Mahomes but after after that the first half off into the look good. It looked a lot more similar to what we saw last year. There wasn't a huge big shots. Downfield the vertical shots and that's because the Patriots were tried to take it away but we got some good Andy Reid we got some more short passes we got some more passes that were getting into intermediate areas. It seemed like it was a game plan plan designed to help get some easy throws for Patrick Mahomes to build a little bit of rhythm and despite the fact that he's bailing out of pockets. The interior offensive line's out playing particularly. Well they were able to get some rhythm throws converts third downs. They're getting some help. That kind of went away in the second half trying to note the lead Patrick Mahomes hand was hurting them. A little bit he couldn't really grip ripple and rip it Downfield. So you just want to throw away the second half but you hope to build on that first half says the first time I think we saw chiefs offense. It seemed to be executing from the coaches is down to the players on the relatively consistent basis. Yeah I and we saw the the motion from tyreek Hill. I think it was like the second play of the game aim. We got to see that orbit motion kind of inter- it's way back into the chiefs lexicon again and I started a little excited because I expected. Good Andy Playbook now. There were some extenuating circumstances. That we're GONNA talk about here next. But I do feel like he called a good game plan. Honestly against the broncos in the first first matchup I felt like it was a pretty good game plan as well I. It wasn't very deep necessarily out of Patrick Mahomes. But he was ten for eleven for seventy six yards hours before he went out hurt after. This was the game that he went out. Hurt and Matt Moore finished but they moved the ball really really well. They got a touchdown a few goal they were within field goal range before Matt Moore came in. I think that Andy saw some stuff on tape that he could exploit out of VIC Fangio. I don't think that they really ran it. After Matt Moore came in the game very interested to see if we see maybe the playbook he was planning to use a little more of the first first time that they played against this team. I had a tweet saved up in my drafts. During that broncos game and it was basically something to the effect of mahomes is Alex better than Alex ever did during the Broncos game. Because it's true I mean he was Kinda just I mean he was just shooting the easy stuff sharp on the easy stuff and I think you kind of. I think you might see a little bit of that too especially considering the hand injury injury that we are about to talk about. You know it's been the most popular Nian Kansas City. It's been the most popular ankle in Kansas City. And now what's the most popular hand in Kansas City. Patrick mahomes his thirty injury of the season that we know of a bruised battered right hand. Apparently it was swollen all week up until yesterday when mom's finally was able to grip of football that's comforting is very apparent that mahomes was nursing in hand injury because there was some opportunities that he just flat out missed and I think is because he was timid to challenge down the field They were just trying to get out of dodge alive. Thank God the defense played the way they did this week against the Patriots. It's going to be you know it's going to be interesting to see how the cheese balance trying to have a rhythm flow To this offense you know getting a good rhythm do the things that you know that they can. They need to do to win a football game but also with with in the back of your mind. That Patrick Mahomes hand his bruising bruising pretty bad and and hopefully they can manage that mattie think like you said they were trying to get out of dodge they had the lead they were just trying to prolong or shorten the game ups. They get out of there as chief had to throw the ball. Union sold them have a little bit of success until the Travis Kelsey fumble. They were finding ways to make it work. which is something? I don't think you can say they'd done a really good job of the last couple weeks. Unfortunately this is the fourth maybe fifth game this year. We've talked about Andy Reid. The coaches just trying to get out out of dodge. Because they don't like how the game's going whether it's wind whether it's the field the leg this that there's a lot of games with the chiefs that we've kind of made excuses. That makes sense so so maybe even excuses that had a reason for why the chiefs or try not to play the real offense anymore and it just it is a fan and somebody that watches the team you would like to see them. Flex the real offense you would like to get to see the often show up at some level of consistency. Hopefully mahomes hand is good enough to do that. Against the broncos give us another half that just who says hey. We're still here. We're still top to your offense and we don't want to just see them trying to get through the game as quickly as possible running for two yards and nothing else they definitely have not touched that hand at all this week like they're. I'm sure that this is the lightest workload glowed that we've seen Outta Patrick mahomes since you know the knee that you know. They've ankle and all of that like they don't probably want him throw in too terribly much this week. I imagine that they are protecting that. And shielding it as much as possible. One thing just tag onto matty's comment here about how there's there's you know there's always something that's coming up got it's GonNa snow and reportedly it's GonNa be a decent amount of snow in Kansas City. We might be talking about the grip of Patrick Mahomes in the snow coming up here so he still recovering from and now field lose leaking already just chop this game out the window Eddie. Reid might come out of this game. AM saying yeah. The hand was bothering him a little bit. Plus it was cold so it was really tough for him to grip the ball. which is to say that? It's not an excuse. It very well might might be a reason behind it but there's yet another thing that could be going on this weekend. All the adversity all of it all of the the battle. I don't know what will they ever do. Third storyline is something that is finally starting to make its rounds. Sounds around the around here in Kansas City. And that's the pocket management of Patrick. Mahomes if you've been listening to this show for the last three weeks or so. You've probably heard US discussing it I I. It's it's it's something that's valid with what you're seeing with Patrick. Mahomes it's inconsistent season the drop inconsistencies navigating the pocket when the step up when to bail out when the backup all that Kinda stuff. He's just there's there's a lot of inconsistencies in what you're seeing. I think you Kinda saw. I think he kind of started to see it. Before you know I think you start to see a little bit of I don't want to call it Lazy Eh. But I think you kind of started to see his drops being a little inconsistent and and some of his footwork stepping into throws Before you really saw some of these more egregious mistakes navigating the pocket and I think it's kind of been a slow burn into this and you know it's something that it sounds like mahomes is very cognizant of because they're being outward it facing about it. They're being public about it You're seeing him admit that he's been a little bit off he's starting to you know fall off of his mechanic's a little bit in the back end of the season and I'm sure a lot of these injuries and a lot of things that he's dealing with dull help because you're thinking about other things in you know the mechanical breakdowns and those kind of things happen when you're tired or when you're you're dealing with some pain and stuff like that so I think that might be part of what you're seeing but you're mahomes has has got to be a little bit more consistent today or this week. He's got to be more consistent this week. It's gotta be working system moving forward a Alleviate some of the problems that they've experienced to this point offensively. Because like I you know we talk about the offense and they have a lot of issues but it's not like it's just play for play for play for play for play for play it's just it's just egregious regis in bad offense and bad play calling and all that stuff. There's always like you know there's a couple good place during the they just have been able to string things together and some consistency with some of the mechanics and stopping in some of the drops. And all that kind of thing with homes really could help them string together. More plays more consistent drives. Now what really focus on that for a second. Because I was talking a little negatively and being kind of out there with all the reasons for mahomes that she's often struggles Rosen while I do think they're getting played up a little bit much and it's probably more likely to cheese just simply are playing as good a football is they have last year. I think that's the bigger reason reason rather than the leg the win the dirt so on and so forth. It's not like the offense is bad. This is still a very good office this office silly top five ish offense in the NFL so it just lacks consistency and it seems to lack rhythm especially from drive to drive. A big part of. That is how Patrick Mahomes is handling the pocket and it's not all his fault. This interior offensive line is not good. It has not been good all year. There's been a few other guy. Are Few guys shuffled in out. That weren't starters. They don't have a lot of continuity together and even in places where they do you're simply not good L. D. T.. Not Good not good at all been saying for a couple of weeks now. He is not playing while while. Andrew Wylie took a step back from last year. Austin writers just not good enough at center to help cover for both of those guys or even one of those guys. He's just kind of their A placeholder so you don't have good interior offensive line. You get a quarterback that's taken a Lotta hits this year that's been under pressure. He's panicking a little bit. He's giving out of the pocket get he's getting the ball. Throwing it off. Platform key needs to trust them. He's admitted it. And it's not so it's GonNa fix overnight. They just got a slowly start working on that working on keeping him a little bit more the pocket help those tackles out a little bit. Because you're starting to see even fisher shorts. Give up a few more. What looked to be pressures? Patrick mahomes tries to retreat over a pocket. That's either collapsing lapsing or not. We're not even getting to see. It's you just hope to see improvement on that this week. I think got a little better last week but everyone can point to a couple of big issues that tyreek Hill in the end zone there was another one early in the game on a deeper pass to Travis. Kelsey where he was moving when he didn't need to be moving out of the pocket but it looks like it's getting a little better. You just WanNa keep seeing that continue as the season goes on. Yes he knows it he he said it basically unprompted this week like they asked him. You know yeah the offense. It's still score in and Kinda move on the ball but you know it's not as efficient as we've we've grown accustomed to it being at. He just unprompted prompted said. That's on me. which is Andy Reid Ism but then went into why you know discussed how old habits die hard fans up thrown off of his back foot just because that's kind of breakdown mechanics? He's not doing the little stuff right. He admitted all that wind all of that and then went forward to say that he trusts interior offensive line. which no definitely not? He doesn't play football he definitely doesn't and yeah it's because of writer Wiley and in L.. DT who apparently the entire Internet caught up this week and finally like focused on the interior offense of aligned with. Oh Wow he's he's been bad. You know so we. We got to kind of see a culmination of all of that. All of those issues compounded did the Broncos are going to try and take advantage that Vic Fangio was going to really trying to focus on bringing the heat in the interior especially so they've got to be not much better this week okay. Let's go with players to watch Craig while my player to watch this week is going to be Spencer ware. Spencer where got a lot got more run than I think that they were expecting Eric. B Enemy said that they they got or they weren't expecting him to get that kind of workload and that he just kept coming to the sidelines. Say No I'm good. I feel healthy. I'm ready to go. And they spoke to Darwin Thompson this week as well and talked about pass protection and the game speed up up slowly for him. I think that we're going to see plenty of Spencer where this week. Still even with Damian Williams returned so I would expect him to rotate Tade in a little bit. He just might have a little bit fresher legs than some of these guys who has been through a season long kind of workload and so they trust him enough to put them out there. Help protect Patrick Mahomes. I expect that we're going to see a little bit more Spencer where this week. Mike Mike I Watch is going to be tyreek Hill. I think we talked about it a little bit at the beginning here Craig did tire killed. They start using them emotional more. That's a good way to kind of identify. The coverage urged also get on the move harder for teams to send extra attention to him. Make things open up a little bit easier. A don't I like Vic Fangio as defensive coach. He's just not a bill belichick level. They are not going to be able to contain tyreek hill as well as the patient. Sit on those underneath passes since hills. Come back he hasn't connected on one of those deep eight bombs with Patrick Mahomes. I think they're gonNA find ways to get him in space underneath. They're gonNA find ways to attack vertically. I'm interested to see if the broncos are gonNA play a lot of zone coverage like they normally do or they're gonNA stick mostly demand coverage like they have the past against the chiefs biggest tyreek hill. Mu Seen tyreek hill. Beat Chris Harris before I imagine the the same thing would happen if Chris Harris Junior has all across the field in man coverage again as long as patrimony as a time to get the ball to him by guy is Laurent du Vernay Tardif He's a guy you know. I posted something earlier this week. Talking about potential candidates I think L.. DT's a potential essential cut candidate. He has played in sixty percent of the games that he's been eligible for since signings extension. And he hasn't been particularly good. I think I I'm I think he's kind of playing for his job. The back half of this back stretch of the season and you know if you have questions about L. D.. I think think just wash. Just try to watch him a little bit today or on Sunday and just see what you get out of them and and see if you think that he's playing to a level that That is earned him nine million dollars next season. He's going to be one of the more fascinating cases for this team to kind of navigate through when it comes to their roster decisions because they can save day five million dollars against the cat by releasing.

We examine how Jeff bezos turned a small online bookseller into one of the most powerful companies in the world. We start by exploring how Amazon prime became service with over one hundred million members and the main source of companies power.

The question is Amazon. Too Big you know and we just don't WanNa be the United United States have Amazon. We just really don't land of the giants has been recommended by the New York.

Now find out more and binging on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast APP okay. Let's talk doc about the defensive side of the football the strongest side of the ball just for this Kansas City. Chief team the defensive team now obviously really And I think we gotta start with drew. Lock drew lock is Is Making I believe his third start of these of his career local kids going to be really really cool story I. I'm sure it's going to mean a lot to drew lock but hopefully it doesn't mean a Wayne Craig. What have you seen from July? So far. We're we're all kind of got to see drew lock senior bowl last year and Missouri. Fans are very familiar with them. He's got arm talent. He's got mobility. He's got the ability to make the throws that they're asking them to do. They have not given him layups in his two games back. It's not like they're making things easy on him him. He's throwing a lot of contested balls thrown into windows. They're going downfield regularly and they're running a lot of to who back pistol all of the sudden and running read option throw in deep throws out of it like this is a completely different offense ends than the one that we saw the cheese play earlier. This season Joe flacco stood in the pocket as a statue. Drew Lock is not necessarily A. Hey great diagnosis of pressure blitzes and things like that which can come into play as far as the rush plan and everything like that for Spagnolo but he is a lot more mobile will he can get outside the pocket. He can avoid pressure and he can make throws down the field. That's going to give the chiefs a little bit more fits I think running this to back pistol. Who is going to give the chiefs a lot? More looks that they have to take you know. Keep accounting for and they also run a lot of heavy personnel Philip. Lindsey has been the biggest benefactor for drew. Lock being there. Because they've been able to keep that extra safety out of the box force guys deeper and you know this. This read option is really opened. Things up foreman. That's because lock is so good at running it. Thus far the thing with drew lock is he will look over easy stuff to try to biddable downfield into a tight window a turned out to make some highlight those doing so. He's also made some very ugly passes already in his young. NFL career. That I think have have been glossed over with some of his really decisions. Really poor throws of got glossed over just because he has a lot of highlight those. They've been winning he's his stat. Line hasn't looked terrible. He's made some really good highlights. If people have kind of glossed over some ugly interceptions and ugly throws I think the way the chiefs defense is playing right now. The Way Steve spangles dialing stuff up lately Ariza game where the NFL's going to catch the July a little bit He's going to see a lot of different looks. He's going to see a lot of different pressure. Think you're gonNA see some plays where the chiefs show pressure drop drop a Lotta guys in coverage they really challenge drew lots mental acuity here. If he's ready for it and I expect them to see look like a rookie quarterback that fell out of the first round this week. It so drew lock when you're when we were evaluating them back during draft season it's he. He's a very very polarizing game to game. So you know some games you would see. You'd see some things it'd be really impressed by what you were seeing. And you'd like this guy understand why people would want to take a chance on them and then and you would just see some games and it was just. It was really bad in it was a lot of you know not handling pressure well and trying to throw balls off your back foot and make hero ball all plays and there's a lot of that to his game where you know. There's some inconsistencies that I if you're getting a bad drew lock game. You're you're you're good shape I do think I think a lot of it fell on the mental side. If he wasn't seeing things clear he would get a little bit rattled back there. If he was facing pressure it wasn't always pretty wasn't finding his outlets. So there's I think there's some inconsistencies that you can attack and I I do agree. I think it's just GONNA be trying to try to mess with him on the mental side of things. Whether it's you know mixing looks up Showing pressure bailing out I I maybe trying to bring some you know some some blitzes from your secondary players. I think some of those kind of things you know. Just make him make him think through the game and you should have some success S.. I think and I think cease bag teams more than up for it. I think they continue to build off what they've been doing. In one of the things that they can do is affect the passer Asir and last time the chiefs played. This football team was one of the more enjoyable defensive performances. We've adults these and obviously it was. There was there's something there's a cloud hanging over the entire game that was Patrick Mahomes kneecap but I mean the defense. They got After Joe FLACCO Craig. Can they repeat that performance again. I don't think that they're going to end up with nine sacks again this week vomit insanity but yes they can kit kit map both alluded to it there. He does not handle pressure. Dr Drew Lock like the lock onto a guy particularly downfield. He will stare somebody down and he'll lock onto it downfield. He doesn't move through his progressions particularly well and win the pressure comes. He'll throw it anyway. He's not going to sit there and eat a sack. He's going to trust his arm to fit it into a window that maybe not there. They the interception through against the Texans where the safety rotate and early early early towards the receiver for an corner undercutting the receiver. He threw it anyway. Safety Jumps at easiest pick in the world for that safety. It's just. He makes a lot of questionable decisions because that pressure pressure was in his face and so he just tried to uncork it any way rather than eating the sack living to see another day I expect that the chiefs pass rush is is going to be able to dial some stuff up. SPAG knowle's going to bring some blitzes and things like that to really bring the right kind of pressure. The question mark is Frank Clark. If we're going to see him this week he's got a stomach issue of some kind. That won't go away enough for them to have to bring him to a specialist. Clark needs to show up Clark needs to be there because I feel like he wrecked that game against Denver he can wreck it again. And if we get the Alex before that we got against New England it's going to be very very long day for drew lock. So here's the thing about the Denver broncos offensive line Garrett Bowles is really really bad at football it may not be their worst offensive lineman so yet the pass rush should still be pretty good this week. I don't think you're going to get a repeat of nine tax. Joe FLACCO simply cannot move his feet I think once he drops back they get stuck in the ground. His cleats might be like four inches long or something. I'm not sure he doesn't move. Drew Walk will vote he will fade back and he will throw a ball off his back foot with absolutely no momentum in it and he will do that time and time again to try to get away from pressure sure. He's able to escape some saks. There's probably going to be some pressures that he gets away from a throw off. He is a little gutsy he can sit in there sometimes. Throw it but for the most part. He's going to shy highway from getting hit. He's GONNA rush throws he still gonNA try to squeeze men there you've got to put pressure on lock and you're GONNA get good results even if they aren't sacks. I think that he gets away for more Saxon. FLACCO did but the pass rush is going to be a problem. And I don't think it's just GONNA be your defensive line. But the way they've been blitzing their safeties their linebackers in But successes they had against the Broncos last time I would expect to see plenty of that again. I think it's still going to be a story. You just probably won't see you know nine sacks pop up all the statute again it will be nine sacks but I think the pressure can still do the same kind of job that you saw. I think there's there you know I. I don't think drew lock has seen enough in this league to be able to to to make enough decisions under pressure and if they can put more pressure on on him they're going to be just fine Courtroom Sutton is beyond besides guaranteeing a victory Against the Kansas City chiefs in Arrowhead did with a rookie quarterback against a team. That is finally starting to play a better especially defensively Besides guaranteeing those victories. He's playing football football. His Sophomore Year has really really come on strong. Having a really strong strong season he present some problems. He's a very good football player. Matty Colon Sutton's like the opposite of Garrett Bowles as in like he's good at not really really bad it football and with his size and he's he's he's not the most technical route runner but he understands how to use his size his a little bit of acceleration that he has to get positioning. He's really good attacking the ball near. I think if if drew lock is willing to test the chiefs quarters which he most likely will be if July can handle the pressure. That she's on coincides GonNa get some fifty fifty opportunities. He's GonNa get some chances to make plays over. Various Ward Shot Bruin Morris Claiborne. They should be able to attack him his size. His abilities at the catch point are going to be a problem. I don't think the chiefs are going to go out of their way to add specific extra helped Like they did Julie. Eshelman think on the outside. He's GonNa be isolated plenty plenty of times and if the chiefs can't figure out a way to stop them. That could make the game a little bit closer than it needs to be. He's just implying that. Go to football us kind of have to rely on your cornerbacks who've been playing better to make a couple of plays just make it look less appealing to keep throwing up. Fifty fifty balls of cortlandt sought missed. The game goes on the way that the broncos use cortlandt Portland Sutton. He's a very good player but they a lot of times. We'll go thirteen personnel and have Colin Sutton. beat the only dude on the outside side and I want to read you guys do. Do you guys happen to know who the other Denver broncos wide receivers are because Emmanuel Sanders was the other guy opposite of of him the first matchup and got plenty targets. Do you guys know any of the other. DENVER broncos receivers juwan Winfrey Day. Sean Ham say Bachand Hamilton. Tin Patrick yes. Actually three deontay Spencer Fred Brown or the other. I do know those. That's where I was that. Yeah no that's that's actually really good. That's randers right on rag Ted. Yeah that's not a murderer's ro of wide receivers. Though like they are not going to its own accountants. Those those are all almost all accounting's IT'S GONNA be a lot of Noah fant it's going to be a lot of Jeff your troika. Golly Andrew back there fullback is been a lot lot more integrated lately too. I but Portland Sutton is really the only guy on the outside other you know they line up out there but Portland sons the only the guy that they really have to worry about that can do damage in the air on the outside as a wide receiver and yet drew lock is GonNa throw him just as much as Joe. FLACCO ECHO did high volume guy so if he can get on the same page as drew lock he could wreck the game a little bit yeah. Why don't you talk to Fred Brown in and accounts payable okay? Let's go to players to watch All three players Craig who you watch it okay. I know we're not supposed to do this. But I'm watching tire and Matthew. He's the quarterback of the defense. We we said we weren't doing those anymore. tyronn Matthew is going going to get a pick this week. I feel very confident in that I. They have used Iron Matthew really well. He is playing some of the best football ball that we've seen out of a safety in years. I I mean every berry in his. Brian Fantastic. I'm not saying he's up to that level but tyronn Aaron Matthew is locked in. He's got everybody on the same page his attitude the impact that he's having on the game even though it may not seem like it like he's not post in the major stats. He's not post in these big picks and everything like that. He is absolutely blanketing guys out of the game. And they're using him as a major weapon and drew lock is going to have to diagnose these coverages try and find open guys because Spagnolo is going to drop these guys into exotic looks to confuse refuse him. He's GonNa get one he's GonNa give one right to tire and Matthew. I fully expect Matthew to have a big game both on the all. Twenty thirty two and in the box score like Craig said the broncos will use some thirteen personnel. They're gonNA use a lot of twelve personnel. They're going to get multiple tight ends out there. They're gonNA have running backs get out the routes so I'm looking at the cheese best coverage linebacker pretty closely and no now neiman starting weakside linebacker Damian Amien Wilson. Not The three down Mike. They Anthony Hitchens. But the Sam Reggie Ragland is GonNa see a lot more snaps this week than he normally gets with. That heavier heavier broncos personnel. He's obviously gonNA be relied on the run game. He was set a really hard edge against the Patriots like he had a phenomenal game. Vote against the run in the past. He said a good edge. He did a good job in pursuit. When they're letting be aggressive but more than anything else Reggie Ragland understands football in coverage he might not be in the lead athlete but he understands his coverage responsibilities responsibilities and he works through his progressions his keys? Real fast you WANNA try to hit the chiefs flats. That's fine. Just don't do it at Reggie Ragland because you can ask James White. How that goes you take a pretty good lick? Because he's closed on you fast. Reggie Ragland made splash plays in his tenure with the chiefs and coverage. I know we don't think of him as a coverage linebacker but he's made some really nice plays. I liked it. They're going to be forced to put him on the field in this game a little bit more because I think he really can have an impact Craig wild that tyrant. Massey's getting interception this week. So as Reggie. I think we're GONNA have to sweep it because it's crazy because one tornadoes getting an interception this week to oh I thought frank was getting another one now. May maybe one thornhill. I think he's really coming along Week to week. I think you're seeing him getting a little bit better. I think the communication you know as you saw the last time these. This team was at home You saw him make a big play I think he gets another big play against an AFC west West opponents you know. Two thousand eighteen wasn't and a great year for Brett. Vh But two thousand nineteen look pretty good for him tired. Matthew Frank Clark quite the haters want thornhill all these guys. I I really like what I'm seeing with. This group want thornhill. I'm expecting to have an interception this week to. Let's go the predictions Greg. Well apparently Oy Anita Justice and drew lock throwing eighteen interceptions on Sunday three youths just three. It's as good as eighteen. Two hundred zone. It's crazy readies. Returning his for a seventy five yard. Pick Sake oh you guys have no idea the kind of backflips that I'm going to be doing I ab- censoring that. Making making that family friendly there. Can we call Reggie big sexy. Can we motion motion to call him. Big Sexy moving forward. I mean we I have been. I don't know what you guys are talking about so predictions for the game. I I I do think that this is going to stay a little close early. I think the broncos GonNa pull out all the stops try and pull up bunch of misdirection get Philip Lindsay into space. I think that this game is maybe like a fourteen ten game midway through the second quarter and its back. Noah makes the adjustments US mints. The offense continues to click. I I've got this as a thirty five twenty game with the other ten of those points coming in garbage time for the broncos but but I do think that there will be the start of this game. It's going to be a big feeling out period with a new offense and then eventually this defense will takeover give the ball back to the offense. Allow them to put some points on the board I think the brokers come and they're going to give the chiefs their all. You've already seen it again chippiness now that they've got a new quarterback they're playing well. They're feeling themselves themselves a little bit. They've been talking this week up to the game. They're feeling it drew locks coming home so on and so forth I'd only cheap. They're going to get complacent after his patriots game. I don't think subtype leaders. They now have in the locker room. I think they're still going to be plenty hungry. They're going to want it just as bad and like we've been talking about this whole time. I think Steve Spangles in put a lot AGILA. He's going to give him a lot of a lot more to the chargers of the Texans did he's GonNa make him really work for it. I think it's going to be evident from the GEICO achieve. Jump about two a solid early lead. You see them throw the offense neutral like they like to do in the second half of coast to a double digit victory chiefs. Twenty seven Broncos. Thirteen eighteen team picks. Reggie pick six. We've called it already. But not close this week chiefs are gonNA dominate the broncos like they have in the past so the chiefs are going to start hot. What They're going to score two touchdowns early it's going to be fourteen to nothing After Awan Thornhill pick six two six six The offense that the the offense is gonNA score another another two touchdowns late in the game. The they're not going to score in the entire fourth quarter and the broncos are going to get a garbage time it's garbage time touchdown. Twenty eight seventeen. Kansas City chiefs get their tenth win of the season are. That's going to do it for the game preview episode this week for the AP laboratory we will be back later to Next week to so you Do Mail back this catch.

BK talks Kendall Hinton and Drew Lock with Susie Wargin

"Will be no deaths by inches. This is the broncos daily jazzed with brandon. Krisztal want everything all the meatballs and pasta happy hump day broncos country and it should be a happier day. You get your quarterbacks black quarterbacks pack on the practice field well two of the three blake bortles. Not practicing i think. The broncos are airing on the side of caution in case brett written or drew lock where to test positive or anyone else in the building by taking bortles completely away from the team other than as vic fangio put it wednesday to check in with his covid test and grab some food. It's allowing a little more insurance. Of course there's a chance that if blake bortles was close contact with jeff driscoll and no one really thinks they were. They think that they were in a room with driscoll and they did have their mass down at times but nobody thinks that they were closer than six feet or on top of each other. So odds are none of these. Quarterbacks are gonna come down with this at least not from being around driscoll doesn't mean they couldn't contract it on their own and yes cow shurmur in town but he has to go through six days of clearing testing protocol so by taking bortles away from the team they at least have a little more insurance if you will but it was weird. Because they didn't want to say that they were quarantining him They just said that he was taking it day by day and he was away today. I imagine that'll be the case the rest of the week. The report came out just a little while ago and the name that jumps out that would surprise you based on information that we had at least heading into practice. The league read didn't practice. He's shish trae marshall was already out phillip lindsay with the knee. We knew about and then demar dotson has been getting most wednesdays office says hand slash not injury so i guess it's like hands bothered him a little but also not injury laid jerry jeudy continues to be limited. Pj lock is limited as well and so me the one that we got to do some digging on to find out what the severity of it is. Then the news that hit the transaction. Wire philly wills coming home. We'll parks and i know that he's excited to be back in orange and blue. You won't get to. Where thirty four. He's saying bass he's got his jersey number. But i'm sure we'll find a a number that fits won't be able to play this week either. He'll have to go through kobe testing all week. And then we'll be eligible to play next week in carolina but i'm guessing part of it is. They're worried about trae marshall now yet. Pj lock in his shoulder. And i think they liked will here. He wanted to look at opportunities to play more elsewhere. It didn't work out in his hometown in philly. And i imagine he'll be beer for the final month of the season. I guess if the broncos catch lightning in a bottle then for the place as well also shelby harris back on the practice field in a limited capacity as he's been out for four games because of grown virus sell they're getting healthier at the right time safe for bryce callahan has headed. I are and vic fangio alluded to that earlier in the weeks that it could be some time with bryce with the foot said it's not the same is the same not the same injury as the reason he had the screw before. So now you have to deal with a rookie. Cornerbacks michael ojemudia and bassey playing a lot. More because you're taking callahan on the field and not the best week to do that. When you know that you're going against the chiefs in tyreek hill and sammy watkins. And maybe mccall hartman. I don't know where he is and his status. Plus travis kelsey taken your corner that had played the best off. The field isn't going to be great but it is the cards that they're dealt and kind of the story bryce callahan. Unfortunately well let's look at the positives and let's hear from drew lock know that the quarterback were fine and again. If you didn't hear vic fangio said that it was consistent with the fines for other covid violations and so here's drew lock talking about everything that's happened in the last three or four days going back to saturday and you can hear his honesty in here and i think i appreciate that. He's always wanted to face the music and not trying to make excuses and being the leader that the team needs and knows it. This will hopefully be a lesson learned and something clearly that you wouldn't think what happened again. So this is drew. Lock in his press conference with us today and susie wargin will be on the other side of that. But i want you to hear from broncos first off. Obviously this is a big big week and everything that went on. I've said the statements. What i said no minted. I'll own up. System state began this this team and everyone. It's been awesome. A great job with protocols we came in on that tuesday gaas meshwork gambino is here and we got to let this go with it ended up hurting us and it hurt this program and i apologize for letting that happen. Nowy couldn't there. That's that's the point of the matter gear needed to be perfect anywhere perfect and nobody got me better for far as not being surprised or whatnot so i think the timing was a little different obviously route. They're getting ready to practice. Not got pulled off the field so that came as surprised me but whatever the league doctors lawyers that what has to say about it follow what they say and follow their rules in told me leading you to stay home so on and then watching it. Sorry to question watching it was a gut wrenching. Feeling the whole time i it was Usually tough it wasn't something. I enjoy doing much other than out there on the field and helping my my teammates out her my heart my soul and you know it's time von and gets kansas city. Finally get out there and do what. I love football drew. What's the what's the process for you to move on. Do you have to discuss this. With your t bates. Do you stand in front of them. I mean what what is. What is your process for. Sort of working through this because you were. You were pretty vocal. In august saying you want it to be at the front of the line when it came to sort of making sure everybody was following the protocols and things like that so i'm just curious are work through with with the rest of the guys like the best thing for me to do is come out profound impact stuff into the guys for him Let's like there's been a lot said quite honestly to me in the seem ready to move on from it ready to get to kansas city being keep addressing it and keep dragging the song longer than it needs to be. But now we're going to do we know happened happened on sunday needs to happen this this sunday night and nothing. That's going to help us get ready for sunday night as to do with what happened last week. Come out your practice as well. Jeff folks on kansas city more having me forced to sit out the game and after the after the game coach. Question the leadership of the quarterbacks in the room and the fine that can reflect poorly on your leadership. Your decision making all of that. I know it upsets your mom. Does it upset you anything. Coach vic says it's not no not in my opportunity for my suit jurisdiction to really get upset him now. He's my boss. He's the leader of the team. Or whatever he says goes we. Were dating a little dealership on coming in and getting ready by ourselves and doing that By ourselves on a day where else at home so that shows leadership but again you know he didn't do the right thing didn't have on the whole time we were in there. That's just one of the matter is like it was off. Remind time to be able to keep side of the game. That's what it is daddy data because Suspending forward as you said these these last five weeks. He has a foreign seven. What is the what is the biggest thing that you guys can do. Five five final weeks to you. Know to go into this season with some positive momentum coming out in and practicing getting these wraps didn't rests in games and practice keep getting better keep move forward as a team as an offense defense special teams as full as a full unit coming out and play good football. Couldn't one play back to back to back to back off. Sounds of all bowlers. Doing our job at a high level and keep doing that. And keep proven that earning keep improving In our own specific jobs. i've seen star plans of all these last weeks drew kind of touched on it. And i remember back in two thousand eight lebron james yelling at his mom at celtics game to sit her. You know what down so when your mom takes to twitter. Are you embarrassed appreciative. Aggravated all the above moms will be moss. That's just that's just the fact you know they're going to back up their kid you're gonna stand up for their kid Regardless of the situation in my mom fire human. Never a game where i played. That wasn't more stereotype. Her than my dad so she's just always been that been that way you know it's gotten to this point now. She's talking about Bill a leading and she's always been firing so leave at that drew. You guys were in giving its the chiefs in the first half before a couple this turnovers. What can you take some limited success. You had against them. Compared to your first start last season you know we just turn the ball over it Knife through the case Turnball earlier in that game to keep the ball our hands and take what they give us. I think we have a better out. In this time and make the make the difference in in the scoreboard so Taking care of the ball this week. And i guess doing our job won't play time. It's time for a few more next on the yeah drew kind of follow up on that a little bit. I mean for this offense. Go back to even before you step in the lineup. Last year against the she. so what are they drove. What you guys Defensively the causes issues. And how do you adapt to that You know. I feel like they do a good job of bringing pressures as any really good defense. That causes problems Because problems beveren pressures that are unusable or make us hotter guys in. It's just what defense is do so they tried to do This is the chiefs. Do it. He's doing really well and it's our job big those pressures up. It's my job. Put us in rice situation and be able to take those up in. If we don't need all my hats. Are you know. get the ball. They do hit us up and take care of that drew. I just wanna to go back to sunday. You know how hard it is. Obviously to be an nfl quarterback. What is your brush of what kendall did and had to pull off in twenty two hours first off. There's a lot of words used to describe what kill went out. There did as far as i mean. The guy has steel. I mean gosh. He was out there back. Their nazi grabbed a quarterback play against one of the best Needs what else can you ask this guy to do. He went out there and you played his butt off a song the next morning. When i'm sitting in my car waiting to get my rabbit. Cova test results back. That were negative And car get my mask on and said you know can oh man. I'm so proud of you for going out there. It's a lot of guts. A lot of hearts go out there and do what you did in the circumstance that he said much respect for what you guys do now. Of course. I was really proud of him to be able to lead that team. That defense Showed a lot of heart me gain respect of pretty much this whole team to georgia. You just talked about kindle a little bit did you give him any advice before the game in. Did you even know who kindle was before the game yes. Of course. I knew kindle lists on. We thought i thought he did a great job. Back in training camp plays planet. Aggressive uniting is talked to him before the game we were dallas with this stuff. That game. So i knew i was able to get a chance to say some to massacre but knowing probably had thirty thousand people in his year before that game. You didn't need another one. Tell them what to do or how to play the game. Let him go through this instincts. Let the let the ball just cloudless rhino. The problems on third down up past few games played were precipitated by getting in third and longs part. What are you guys. Have to just the better on third down. And especially this sunday against the chiefs. Stay on the field like you said you know. We get into trouble ran. Those third longs in starts on first and second down being better being more efficient and we can do a better job on those downs to make easier for us on third down. And it's just made next play. When it comes to you on those third downs knows concentrates or downsize weakest plaque downs over off field as behind intensity high High focus on into those plays in needs to be iphone scientists. You starting this week are dump periods. And that's something that i'm gonna reiterate guys and keep this thing rolling in shock the world in his hometown and i'm just not sure that this broncos team has it's currently constructed. We'll be able to do that but we'll continue to look at how they're going to try on friday. Go behind enemy lines with my guys bob. Vesco and josh cleveland. From six tenths board. Josh is also the sideline reporter on the chiefs radio network. Is they now broadcast. The chiefs games are on sixteen but susie wargin sideline reporter here on. Koa and has been now for this is in the middle towards the end of the year number two now. The broadcast team hasn't traveled this year. But suzy's been a part of every home game well except for the first one. She was sick. And i filled in for and we did this earlier this morning before the press conference. Come down so you'll see me reference that in the middle before we get to susie own remind you about chug water. Chilly go to chuck water tilly. Dot com use promo code chug water.

Here is the great susie wargin. You can also here weekdays nine until three on the fox susie wargin on twitter. This is our chat following. What was a wild game. Sunday that she was part of the broadcast suzy. You've been to a lot of football games. You've covered a lot. You've been a sideline reporter for a lot. I can't imagine that you've ever been to one at any level where a wide receiver started at quarterback. Not even not even at the high school level. Maybe but how does that. An nfl game to see kendall hit and go out there and he didn't take the first snap twenty four snaps as a quarterback for the first time in his nfl career. That's where he goes to make his debut. I know no it was crazy and it's funny. You bring up a game. Because i think it was just having the atmosphere of nobody in the stands and it felt very And i don't mean this in a negative way very varsity. Jv ish. And i think it was just the you know. The broncos did the best they could with what they had I do think that Sean payton in the saints probably could've put much more on the broncos than they did. And i'm not saying that. They didn't play hard because they did play hard. I was watching in between plays. They're still looking at their microsoft surfaces. There's still They're getting yelled at by coaches. They're all you know trying to hype each other up. I see dalton. Reisner come over to kendall at one point he's like. Hey we got this here. we go. That was early in the game but it was just such a weird feel and you were there. You did sidelines for me. That first game when there were no fans in the stands that was bizarre. You know even just to have fifty seven hundred people around gave you the sense like you're kind of a game but to have nobody there and then to have the situation that it was just really it was kind of out of this world and and it fits in with dave logan's zombie apocalypse narrative that he's been using all year. It's one of those. That first game where i in for you. When you weren't feeling well. I i still have five hundred friends and family team behind me so i looked up. I would see people that. I knew that worked in the organization. That didn't have anything. Do on game day or or spouses of players that i had met or other people spouses of staff that i knew so that almost felt more like high school game because every time i looked there was somebody fifteen rows behind me give or take just like ranked you look all the way up and it was nothing but empty seats and cardboard fans photographer madman all over the place and women. Exactly you brought something up that i think's interesting sean. Payton and i guess takes him. Here's one that said it. But he said they scaled back the game plan and they they just made him a game manager and then we look at the defense. They did not get to exotic on kendall hint and maybe part of that is dumb. Lucky ends up beating. He ends up beating a blitz or whatever because he just uses his athleticism so you just play it straight up you play the gaps. And they're fast enough in athletic enough and smart enough that but they weren't there to embarrass vic fangio or the broncos because they knew that the nfl still a brotherhood. They weren't worried about losing the game. But i ain't gonna do them any good to win. Eighty two three because then everyone then you end up having negative flack for winning by too much true. Yeah and that would have made him look bad dude. Hey you know you knew what you were going up against. You didn't have to do it that way. So i mean kudos to him and there is that mutual respect and and it was interesting. You know one of my my favorite part of the games. But i love post game and watching guys interact with each other and so i stand down there. Usually if it's not what we're in right now. I'm trying to grab an interview and it's a little bit of madness and i don't get to see all guys interact like that you do sometimes on tv. If they stay on the field with a field shot but you know a lot of camaraderie between the two teams. And i could just tell that was. It was different than usual where i think probably saints is. Were like hey man that was. Do feel bad for you guys rough. I didn't hear anybody saying that. But you could just kinda get the feel that they're like men this this dunk you know and really they. There's no especially. I think after monday when we saw that the ravens and steelers get postponed again and now it's wednesday afternoon. Why they couldn't have done it for the broncos just to make it a little bit more of a competitive advantage. And i and i get it. They're trying to you know they've got their rules. They've got this. They've got that You know and depending on you know who store you want to hear him what you know what side you wanna take drew. Lock in the guys. We're going back into get more work. And they made a mistake by taking off their masks and eating and there are rules. I understand that. But i still think that you know their teams that have much bigger outbreaks in problems. And they're getting You a lot more. I don't know slack. Maybe lenience even the league or cooperation from the league and so to dwell on. Not that we can't. It's obviously the quarterbacks back at practice today and are taping this before will i think talked to drew lock today. So there's a chance that you know he'll have to defend them so that have to do. I'm sure he will well. Everyone listen as podcast already heard it. Because i will have dropped it in before but anyway When when you look at the game the other day the final thing on the game the the sense i got in the defense certainly did all. They could to keep them. Keep them in. These guys are going to come out and play hard. And so i'm setting us up to say when there's criticism vic fangio out there john clayton threw out there that if he ends up with ten losses or doesn't win another game that he could beyond on the hot seat and they could move on and someone's jason lockenfora said something to i saw it on twitter but didn't see his comments. I just think that. I think that this team continues to play heart vic hasn't lost them and even with a wide receiver at quarterback. They didn't mail it in. And so really the only thing you can take away from. The game is hey. We're still going to go out and bust our ass. Even in an unwinnable situation. I agree and you know what i can't remember now that you say that somebody and i think it was right after the game on sunday. That mentioned you know how much they love vic like man. I just love that guy. And you know i i. Gosh i can't remember who it was that said i read it as a quote somewhere. But you know you look at that and you have to think you have to put an asterix for sure on this last game. You've also got to look at things like no von miller. No courtland sutton no jurrell casey Mike priscilla goes out. Get elijah wilkinson back. But you know he goes in for half the game this last week He's been gone for a certain amount of time. So and now you know. Look bryce callahan. In phillip lindsay. Got a knee injury. And you know. Hopefully philip is back and fine but boy they miss blames six games. What yeah every team has injuries. But the broncos have had injuries to key key players and yet like you said they still go out. They still play hard. I mean that defense was was you know sacking and guy second. The quarterback again tastes mill. And and and getting after him and they weren't you know they're not slacking. Nobody was liking. The offense didn't go out and try had less than twenty four hours to put together a wildcat offense got phillip lindsay taken snaps. You got race freeman with no practice with no practice whatsoever. I mean i watched in pre game. And i see Kendall they're taking some some snaps and the coaches are talking to menendez. I saw him throw the throws he had in pre-game which i know pre-game his pre-game beautiful sure he can throw a football right. This isn't a running back trying to figure out. The kid grew up a quarterback. he could throw. Yeah and i. His first couple passes on like ooh. Wow yeah this moment is pretty big. You know when you look at social media and it can obviously be a vast wasteland of terrible terribleness city but when you have people that understand football or that understand the sport and they point out. Hey look for the people out there that think they can just walk off the street and play quarterback. This is a kid who played power. Five quarterback grew up playing quarterback played in the acc. I get that he's been working as a wide receiver but he has much more of an advantage and any high school heroes. That are out there. Guys play flag football or picked up in the park. That thing they can do this. And you just realize the level the gap that there is between the nfl stars nfl players and and good athletes trying to figure. It makes me about the gulf last week. With with peyton and steph and sir charles and phil mickelson. And i had read ballard on this podcast from draftkings and he. Pj nfl goes look when it comes to gambling on golf. I'm gonna put my money on the professional golfer. And i think all that right that it's one thing when peyton paired with tiger it's another thing when paired with steph and you need to make clutch putts clutch shots so i think the kennel hinton showed all of us that you can't just walk off the street and play quarterback not that he didn't give it a valiant effort. No and i completely agree. And i mentioned that on my. I did a brake on my talk show on monday and i said that i said there's a lot of monday morning. Quarterbacks out there that literally and we've heard him say that before and you see it on twitter. I could go out and throw better football. I could yeah you know what you could probably throw the ball better than how he threw it in the game. But what if you had four five guys coming at you the way twice what you do. And what if. I bet you couldn't throw jack crap if you ain't kim jordan face or the rest of that that defense that number three hundred fence and the nfl. They're coming actor. Let me see. Get one off this nice high and tight congra- to somebody with pro bowl corners. Marshon lattimore to none the less you to check down like two three times. See how much time you have. No kidding find one. I got forty four. Let you run. Never easy task. Play patrick mahomes and the chiefs. What do you see this weekend with at least knowing that the quarterback back. Yeah well. I mean that will be a huge help to know that they're back Have played one time. Of course they just continued to reinvent themselves and do new things and just got so many weapons and weapons at the broncos have all on i r right now i mean. We've we've got great weapons to they're just not playing. And so i think that's a big disadvantage. I hope i mean. I don't know if. I see the broncos winning in this game that would be massive surprise and just a fabulous thing if they could win it because i mean nobody in the world would expect that but hoping the defense can get to homes a little bit just like they've been doing the last couple of weeks and You know. hopefully we'll get our quarterbacks back in and get some things figured out on offense. Was you the best. I appreciate the time you had a great holiday. And maybe the broncos will shocked the world with an actual quarterback now with kendall hidden beyond any boat. All right thanks to talk to you all right. Good stuff there with suzy. We'll see what this broncos team has in store for the chief. We'll continue to talk about it tomorrow. Maybe we'll have rick lewis tomorrow. If not all certainly have somebody to talk to friday. We'll go behind enemy lines. Bop vesco and josh klingler so naptha boss. Still gonna be exciting. So i appreciate. Listen we'll see how the quarterbacks progress and what the plan is for philly will since the broncos went ahead and claimed in my other a bunch of teams that liked him at least that's according to sources close to two winners agent but anyway phil's coming back now and we'll see how they use them. Maybe he'll leaving stick around beyond this year. He's one of my favorites to cover and Was a heck of a player. Just didn't fit in philly which is ironic. Because he's affiliate guy. But i appreciate listen. We'll catch you next time. On the broncos daily podcast.

October 26 Hour 2 Best Teams In the NFL Breakdown | More Broncos Therapy

"Second foul on here. The whole show powered biped energy I'm brady whole joined by. One and only Colefax million back there on the other side of the bulletproof glass Susan and Cheryl handling the. Crowd duties. Big Cheer for Blue Monday. Blue Monday Colefax rough. Rough go today Sky's falling. But I will we had good news like in the real world, which is good. The snow. I I believe really put a dent in all those fires that was just devastating for so long and just see in pictures and hip around Grand Lake estes park the camera peak fire just it was awful. But I do think the the snow kind of hit at the right time and the right places. Crazy absolutely nuts. I took my kid out sledding. Yeah. Got Them. All decked. Dow Got Him in the you know the overalls and the coat, and he was like all ready to go stuff in his hands through the big coat ready to rock and roll and he wanted to go swing. We had swing in the backyard. So now instead I'm Dustin off the swing, it's freezing out there snows blowing all over us. My kids face just bright red he's having the time of his life because then we're finally at some point, we say we don't. We gotta go in gotTa go inside but I gotta try this lead a half try this lead Colfax at out. This kid's damn. dammit. This kid's GonNa like sledding. So I put him on the sled and he has his mittens on holding his hands up kind of like in Talladega nights and Ricky Bobby's holding his hands up like I I'm not sure to do my ends Gavin just holding his hands up he couldn't look more upset. He wasn't crying. He's fine whatever dad doing this for you bro, and pull him around the backyard. He has no emotion on his face. He was smiling singing everything on the swing here. This is weird. I why am I so close to the ground, there is snow flooding the sled I don't want to be here. So we did that for like three circles around our tiny little tree. And unloaded inside. It was a it was. We'll get there. We'll get there Colefax. But it was good. It was glad to see all the snow shoveling was was was a was I actually went outside this morning and I was shoveling I was happy because it's a good. We'd needed this. No, I love snow. But we really needed this and it was you know prayers were answered those I was awesome I really appreciate it. Eight minutes after the hour I text line three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine, six, fight dances I'm sorry Brady my time and small community service has pushed me towards the dim light of cynicism rather than hope. Thank you for at least painting an optimistic. Pitch Picture. It's nice to know there is still light within the darkness. There's always like my friend I still think that this team. I there's something good. We can take from yesterday I don't see I'm this is where we agree. I don't think that drew lock is going to do that a lot. Now I don't know that he has the effector. Sometimes to be a franchise quarterback, you don't have to have the factor. We've seen plenty of quarterback in this league play for a team five, six, seven years. Kind of be their franchise guy and then you kinda go do they really have that it factor like Matt Stafford. Matt. Ryan. Those guys have the it factor. I don't think so. They're good. But The it factor means you are superstar, your Patrick Mahomes, your Russell Wilson your drew brees Tom Brady your those guys. the I'd like Matt Ryan just because you're starting quarterback that puts up big numbers. Are, you constantly putting yourself in a position to win games are you and your team constant winning games and Falcon said that one beautiful year where they go and and maybe you can make a case more. So from Stafford's Great Stat Guy. But it factor no. So I don't know that drew lock has that. Kind of times I thought he has but. This season for sure I'm not there I. Know He's been out a lot. So it's a little unfair. But I will say that in that blowout. Everything went wrong for the broncos outside of the defensive performance. When you look at all these I mean everything that happened we have somebody comments. This defense was terrible. gave up forty three. Did you watch the game? Two of those touchdowns was a kick return for a touchdown. Awful. Kick. Return Coverage The pick six by drew lock but you had so many other things happen in this game. So the chiefs go down score touchdown right off the bat or the Broncos go three and now Chicote outscore touchdown. The broncos go out again and you're thinking. Oh boy and the chiefs are rolling right back down the field is going to be a long day or AJ Alexander. Johnson forces the fumble the broncos go down score a touchdown he's thinking. Well you know the dinosaurs just turn the tide here for Denver Brand McManus misses. The extra point never misses extra points I mean he was the hero of the day last week and then he misses the extra point. So fight herself down seventy six. So you at least in the game chiefs go down a field goal broncos fumble Melvin. Gordon. But the Denver. Defense. Hold up they force a punt then enter drew lock. In. Interception pick six. But, the broncos bounced back and drew lock had an okay drive. They worked their way down the field they got a field goal but then that's when the kick return touchdown happened. So. This defense was fighting every step of the way chiefs gets touched out broncos, Pont. He's Poe end of half and it's It's bad. It's twenty four to nine. But? You still feel like your one stop away and then you're one touchdown away for making this game. Well, what are they doing the at as we got into the second half they forced upon three and out. The broncos get it. That's the bad fumble. Gordon over the top. WHO. Then the chiefs answer with a field goal they had scored they had to get one yard. So there's another three points that the broncos defense really couldn't help. So seventeen right there. broncos turnover on downs sheepskin another field goal. I mean, this defense was fighting and pushing as hard as it could until finally, that last interception led to a fifty seven yard drive by the chiefs for a touchdown. That's that's when it was. Just the defense couldn't hold on anymore broncos go answer with a touchdown of their own. Made it three seven sixteen. But I. Don't feel like every games go that way. That was a weird game. Melvin Gordon on the pitch back to drew lock throws it over his head. What are the odds of that happening? Drew Lock throws the picnics. That was a bad throat bad. Throw kick return for touchdown on this day and age is so damn rare even with the bad kick return. Defense. A lot of bad things happen in this game Vic Fangio talked about the loss and you know just how disappointing it was and what's the next step it was disappointing. Obviously, we just didn't play well as a team to obviously the give us a chance to win the game there and you know the four turnovers kickoff return touchdown. You know you're not going to beat a team like Kansas City doing that and couple the other turnovers game good field position but our whole team just got beat today by them. They're really good and we weren't up to the challenge today. Now at first broncos defense, they were getting run all over the chiefs the first two possessions even though one of them ended in a fumble I still felt like the chiefs were having their way but the broncos defense settled down from that point after the fumble. It's kind of like that defense believed they could compete in this game. The. Problem was. You were running the ball well, but as soon as you call a play lock was going for the home run. And that ended more drives he was sacked too many times I mean especially when you know it didn't look like. Is Pocket presence just didn't didn't feel right didn't seem right for the most part I mean look at his third down efficiency for the chiefs Hofer Eight. That's phenomenal. The broncos were five fourteen. I mean that's that's crazy. This defense and I'm shocked by this because I thought the defense would be. I thought it would be a weakness and that the offense would be a little better I know I was the one who wasn't crazy about all the investments into the offense and pillow fight Dan on the text line. He brought up a point. He said Hey I. Think we're you and I are far off is that I never expected the Broncos to make the playoffs this year. So them going to and seven or three and six isn't a shock to me. They were always a six and ten team. Then why did you go out and pay a guy like Melvin Gordon, a two year contract aid, and then you go out and get ag boy I mean you were you were making. Draw Casey, WHO's out, but you still win and got him. You're making off season moves. That kinda felt like you thought you could get into the playoffs. And listen I I still think that's possible. I still think it's possible. I don't see that you're going to get in that position. Where drew lock is going for the home run I. Tell You what Colefax and if I'm wrong, there you go. But this guy is gonNA come out. Much differently Sunday I don't want him to avoid going deep. You know even talked to the media about that yesterday said, listen I. Just got to pick my spots and I was frank quite frankly going going for it all the time gotta get involved he admits it. Hopefully he learns from it. He actually learns from it's one thing to say it. It's another thing to learn from. McLean. Says we should have never gotten paid manning because now we're just expect good offense and that just doesn't happen. For the broncos. You were also Broncos, countries, kind of spoiled I. Unfortunately, I think you're starting to get used to it. You're starting to get used about offense. This two, thousand and twenty Colefax. Super Bowl was in two thousand fifteen. I'm not a math whiz. Never claimed but that's five years. No playoffs and you're getting worse almost every year nine and seven that was the good old days with Gary Kubiak, and they missed it by a game. Since then you haven't really sniffed it. You have a chance to revive. Revive. Those playoff chances. And and you know what? For a lot of times the broncos use link did it against the chargers last two years even though the Broncos ultimately ended up being knocked so far out of it, it didn't matter with four games left. The BRONCOS, they needed to get a win to stay relevant at least for three or four more weeks. They beat the chargers the last two years. Brady if you could change your eleven and five pick. What would it be now? Still going. If I could change it, I still think teams over five hundred. Honestly. Only to like normally do. Let me, look let me let's just break it down I. I. I I know we're supposed to get predictions on Friday but. I think the Broncos beat the chargers. I do I mean this. There's GonNa be a lot made up of this Justin Herbert. Drew Lock thing but I think the Broncos will out deedee. This defense is looking so much better than per cell being out as a big blow. I. Don't Know How many more of these you can sustain did science US William. So we'll see if he's ready take that next step. I mean, he had a big play last week. Added Lanta. GotTa think they're winning. Still. Feeling good about you know those games coming up Vegas is going to be tough Miami. So I think that it probably win three out of the four for sure. For sure but. That's where I go. But I I I give them a fighting chance against the raiders saints. I'm scared of chiefs I'm scared of. Scenario looking at, you know there's six losses. At Carolina now suddenly becomes a tough game. Home Against Buffalo's a tough game although the bill struggled with jets nine and seven. If I had to pick Redo it. I still see not I still see seven wins there. You know chargers Atlanta Miami. Boy All right I'll go eight name only be honest eight eight. Sticking by my monistic bye-bye Eleven and see how close I get. So far I've. Got It. Right say for the titans. I think. They're going to get a feel good win against this chargers team. Charges are an interesting team. I think they're probably below average team at this stage. They beat the jags thirty, nine, twenty nine. That was crazy game. But Yeah. I mean there's a lot to like about Herbert and the fact that they competed against the saints I, mean they have some good things going for him. But. I still like the broncos at least at this point now Herbert is playing. He's playing great, and this is why the pressure is on drew lock see this is what? You may not have the luxury pillow Dan you may not have the luxury. To sail, we're just GonNa, what else do we do we? This is our only option. You might you might tank. That's an option. You might go free agency again, not with case keenum go with the guy that's actually a proven decent free agent. I mean those are going to be your options because listen Patrick Mahomes isn't getting any worse. You draft an offense this last year. That is is is basically trying to keep up with the chiefs. So you're hoping that that can be relatively soon. You know you. You don't Ha-. You might not have the luxury lets you completely wanNA lose pace and be the worst team in the division. because. The raiders are at least content with Derek Carr. chargers very excited about their future and the chiefs have the best player in the NFL. Twenty minutes after the hour. Thank.

After the hour we'll take a short break here when we come back, let me get to the best and the rest of the NFL some other storylines playing out and some great games and crappy games got a good mix over the weekend we'll be right back. Football since your dial two K. F. K. here NFL Games all season long a northern Colorado's valois thirteen, ten KFI. Code now. Weekdays at four on northern Colorado's Thirteen ten KFI K.. Hi This is Earl Blake Plumber David. Nugget and you're listening to the whole show thirteen ten K. F. K. A.. Welcome back to the whole show we're live from the articles in specialist studios. Side from the Broncos game which I know it was It was the absolute worst case scenario lose forty three to sixteen. I. Think There's light at the end of the tunnel, but we'll see. The rest of the League did press on Colefax and it was kind of an up and down weekend for the most part. Let's take a look at. Some of these games, how about the Lions Falcons talking about Matthew, Stafford and maybe he doesn't have that it factor but. Late in that game, no time on the clock finds a way to get that last thing a touchdown. The Lions Win Twenty three twenty, two browns bengals. Joe Borough. Looking great and not not a great team around see. This is again. This. He's only played like six games and we know Joe Boroughs really really good I get his stock was way different than drew lock but. We know he's a stud they couldn't get the job done against the browns though the bengals were running things. Baker Mayfield had a good game solid game at the end came on strong. They lost bj though, Odell? Beckham. Junior. Adam schefter reports and Justin Anderson Report he is done for the season. So rough one there for the browns who sit at five and two though. For the bengals are one in five steelers titans this was a really fun game in the second half. steelers were up twenty four to seven at the half titans marched all the way back and made this thing. Interesting. Derrick, Henry had some great moments head some tough moments to the steelers stood him up a few times that steelers defense is really really good big. Ben's playing well James. Connors playing well a brown for the titans had a beautiful game, but ultimately, the steelers remain undefeated six zero. And looking like a top team in the NFL Panthers Saints, I said, Panthers, they've become kind of a dangerous team Teddy Bridgewater there now three and four though saints found away again to win four and to not the exact start that they wanted to say it's kind of a mixed bag at this stage drew brees was twenty nine of thirty, six, two, hundred, eighty, seven yards and two touchdowns the. Bills struggled mightily with the New York jets jets were actually up at the half ten to six but the bills put together twelve points in the second half kind of bills feeling type game isn't it? That's kind of how the bills win defend decent Defense Josh, Allen big things I mean he had sixty one yards rushing three hundred yards passing bills, win eighteen, ten cowboys and the Washington football team. Cowboys have some major issues. The biggest issue. Can you lose your two and five Andy? Dalton goes down he's hit ridiculously hard has A. Concussion Protocol on the field hurting walkabout field. No Dallas cowboys no member of of the team of the of the guys out on the field actually walk up to see how he's doing. Like I'm watching this play out nobody looks concerned. No one is your quarterback. Your quarterback goes down. Somebody's usually flag out somebody to come help and Andy Dalton lies there by himself cowboys have some major issues. And I don't see it getting fixed anytime soon, packers and the Texans Aaron Rodgers after losses usually, he's pretty scary. Pretty terrifying. Well, he's. Four touchdowns, no interceptions didn't get sacked cleaned jersey for Mister Rogers twenty, three, four, two, hundred, eighty, three yards. What are the Texans do now they're one in six. How they've had a really difficult schedule but even winnable games, they just can't get it done. Obviously had a coach firing in the middle of the season that usually means. You're in a very tough spot look for be enemy to be the next head coach of the Houston Texans, the buccaneers and the raiders box just did bucks things. Now man their defense is very solid and Tommy be is getting better. Colfax tell me tell me you played Tommy be in this one. You maybe Aaron Rodgers four touchdowns too. So either way I. Tommy be three, hundred, sixty, nine, yards, four touchdowns. He had a rushing touchdown to yeah I mean that's Tom. That's what he does just when you think. You've got him all figured out. He finds a way. Tom Brady is is that good? Yeah. The one rushing touchdown he accounted for five touchdowns Colfax. I don't know if you're doing quick math there but four passing touchdowns one rushing touchdowns five Tom Brady's there rob Gronkowski put together a good game. And they're climbing the ranks as far as quarterback duo quarterback receiver duo Bucks Win Forty Five, twenty I, get it. The raiders were in a weird spot their whole offensive line is in turmoil. But the bucks walked away and one that one pretty easily. Especially Fourth Quarter Twenty, one to three forty niners and the Patriots, Jimmy Garoppolo? Two, hundred seventy seven yards, two interceptions, but the Patriots just don't. Look. Right Cam Newton even admitted. I you know what? If something doesn't happen I'll be in jeopardy of losing my job. Suddenly the PATS are two and four and the bucks are five and two. Tom Brady five bill check to. WHO's better? The chicken or the egg I think the egg so far is better if you know what I mean. Jaguars, chargers, AFC West battle This was this was interesting. chargers were up charged up early in this one jags. March Right Back Charter score twenty points in the Third Justin Herbert Twenty, seven, forty, three, three, hundred, forty, seven yards, three touchdowns and chargers looking pretty good. They have their quarterback even losses they've looked okay. But there they finally figured out how to complete a football game. They get the win seahawks cardinals that game was back and forth. Cardinals are an underrated team. But they they need some respect. And I tell you cuyler Murray is so much fun to watch. He is a blast hits sixty seven yards rushing and a touchdown hit three hundred sixty yards passing three touchdowns in a pick cardinals win in overtime thirty, seven to thirty four Russell. Wilson comes back down. To Earth, he throws three interceptions versus three touchdowns. Russell was running away with the MVP race. That certainly pulled him back the thing that I wanNA point out in this game though he almost had a pick six decay metcalf is a freak of nature. He's ten plus yards behind and is able to run down the defender. It was absolutely insane. He chases him down saves pick six. But Seattle loses their first game and Arizona is now a force to be reckoned with. We'll see what happens tonight on Monday night football suddenly Colefax this game seems kind of interesting doesn't it? Yeah you're looking at. A bears team that. Replaced their quarterback a few weeks ago and rams team. You're wondering Oh man all that Super Bowl magic from a few years back or a couple years back is completely gone now not so fast the rams are foreign to the bears are five and one. Jared Goff is thrown for about sixteen hundred yards and ten touchdowns. So this actually has the makings of being pretty decent Monday night. So I'm excited about it. Some of the big things take away. Yeah that Andy Dalton thing was. That was just tough. I mean did they not like and they don't they don't care they don't care about the season. Okay. Right anything. Best Team in the NFL right now think about that whole against the Pittsburgh steelers, the chiefs. How how far away is Tampa Bay? And that side of things. I mean you gotta you gotTa think the. steelers are right there. Chiefs are there. Find. Ways to win packers pretty. They've got the one loss, but they're still really good. They bounced back scoring thirty five against the Texans. up the good. The great teams are finding ways to win. Even when they struggle on one week, they balanced right back and it's so far some of these teams we thought would be in the mix are are rising to the top thirty four minutes after the hour Colfax. Let's jump out of here and get the latest on the local sports flash. A party a northern Colorado's force thirteen. Ten KFI K., the Block Party Wednesdays from four to ten. PM.

Taylor in Greeley I finish text line three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine, six, crucial time coming up for drew lock and You, know a lot of a lot of texters and folks on social media are saying the same thing or some of you are saying the same thing like What's what's the alternative? What's the other? What's the plan here? What else are you? GonNa do it's it's you know it's drew lock. It's gotTa go you gotTa go the season here? I mean unless you unless you think Brett rippin somebody that we need to learn more about and I liked prepping. But I don't know that I'm ready ready to go. There you go. You go drew lock. Through the bulk of this season, and if you're to three games left and you're so far out of it then then maybe you see what he's got that's our power to play sports poll question though based on what you've seen I know it's eight games. Is drew lock the franchise quarterback go with your gut. Tell you I want to know do you really think that or you just are you just trying to be optimistic because the Broncos are here and you don't WanNa, see another quarterback and you want to see some patients here. Does. Your Gut tell you that he's Justin Herbert these Patrick. Mahomes and Derek Carr. Because that's the division your in AFC west likely. The Best Division in football. or at least darn close. You have to ask yourself that. Chris Chris Carter once said if you're not. Doing it to win the Super Bowl you're wasting your time I, get there young. But. You have to ask how how long take next year you're GONNA see USC strides being taken again, these next four games. We'll tell us a lot about the broncos. You'll tell us whether this team that has a fighting chance and should keep pressing on or whether this team may be should consider not trying their hardest. Don't that never happens. Trevor Lawrence, you're GonNa have to work really hard though tank underneath what the jets are doing. So you I mean that might not be. Already without Sam Donaldson. Jets already been here. So you don't want to become the jets. You don't WanNA become the brands I get that that's why I'm saying yes, I think he is. But. My mind could be changed on that in four weeks. Never has four weeks stranded stretch been so critical to a quarterback to a head coach to a general manager to a franchise. They could very well be in the thick of things in the playoff race in the AFC race. By the time we get out of these next this next month, the time we are around Thanksgiving. Benz. I don't think anyone can be a franchise anything. With Vic Fangio as the head coach. We've all talked about her frustrations with Fangio. There's no doubt he's building up a defense that's in my mind. I still think this defense over achieving which is. You know it's saying a lot about vic. You gotta boy back yesterday and. It took a little while, but the defense finally settled settled down after about two possessions. And they were the strength of that team yesterday everything else went went to Hell Kelly says elway couldn't read defenses in year two either. You gotTA. Be careful. With that. Got To be careful with the. Wasn't great in his first two years. John elway. I mean that that guy turned out to be the greatest and you know what the investment was great too as far as the draft. The pressure on John Elway to start his career was so ridiculous and and again drew lock didn't come in until late last year with no pressure. I of Intersex line three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine, six power to play sports poll question of the day. Is drew lock the franchise quarterback Keith Says Honestly Lock reminds me of Tommy Maddox all the physical skills, but not ready to lead an NFL team yet maybe a few years after just getting more experienced and decision making skills. Well, unfortunately for John Elway you don't really do you have. Do you have a few years and maybe broncos country does maybe you guys we all have that luxury Of waiting around and saying, okay, well, two years they'll be competitive. You're looking at. A seat Kubiak. Was the one. Vance Joseph was to vic fangio. This would be the fifth year and if you're saying a couple of years. So next year you're going to, you're looking at potentially a six to seven year playoff drought. That's bad business. Now, mayor talking about bad business broncos have never been in this position they've never been like this. That's why no matter what Broncos, Sunday, there's a study like ten years ago that you could tell when it was halftime in. Denver because all of the toilets flushing. Seriously that was the thing. Because everybody knows halftime, we're GONNA go to handle our business. That's because this team never has a strand of losing. You know they lose they have a bad year and then they're back they at least make the playoffs or they're a five hundred team. They're never awful. They're never the laughing stock they're never jets territory. But if you don't recover these four games, you're in that territory and what does that do? Ultimately, we could talk football and XS and Os and Oh, give him time. Give him time. Give him time. It is still a business. And you made some signings in the off season to me that didn't say that you're all about the rebuild your more about the retool and you think that you can win nine ten eleven games this season to get back into the playoffs you hired a sixty year old head coach. Times not necessarily on your side folks. I get it if you go for broke. And Okay and you say. There's two ways to go you go with an old coach with. A free agent quarterback this we're GONNA. Put it all. We're in a piece. This whole thing to get Joe FLACCO. That was the idea last year right? That was the idea we're GonNa get an old coach. We're GONNA get a quarterback Joe FLACCO. We're going to bring in Mike Bunch that off it's of line out and. Here we go wouldn't that didn't work. Okay. So we're going to keep the same head coach. We're going to go this route with a young guy. A lot of young guys in the draft. WE'RE GONNA go Jerry Judy, and that. which as a rookie? It's GonNa take time for him to develop but we thought he'd have a much better rookie year. Didn't we Jerry Judy future after guy in the first round? Don't you expect him to be a big part of your your team? I mean just ask the raiders and Henry Rose first advantage text line three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine, six. So, if you're going the route of all were young, then why didn't the Broncos go that route two years ago and hire a young coach Could grow with team that's what I'm saying is you don't have he would have five years. You're you're all say, Oh, well, it's GonNa take time. It's GonNa take two three years. Melvin Gordon won't be around Von Miller Gone Zo. What are you doing? With Kareem Jackson to three years what does that contract look like? Gear. Balls, you have a decision to make their to believe it or not. That becomes a big decision. So. No I don't. You might. Yeah you have the luxury of this year. This year is supposed to be the find out year. And, if you don't make the playoffs or and miss it by a significant amount of games. Think that's fair to say drew lock was a contributor in that. Do you have your question answered. True locks not the future. Or do you loaded up again next year and hope that everybody's healthy and covert free and all that stuff, and then you go in with a preseason. All admit preseason, the Broncos, but at Vance enough in the regular season where everybody's kind of caught up to everybody as far as. Knowing their playbook knowing their game plans. forty-eight minutes after the hour, we'll do a quick break here and we'll wrap up the show with closing thoughts. We're GONNA wrap up broncos chiefs time to move on. That was A. Blank show. But now it's time to move on. Get ready for the chargers because that game has a lot of meaning to it. Season could be on the line. Sunday. As a part of a big stretch of games in the month of November, we'll be right back. No Code now. Weekdays at for another Colorado's voice. Thirteen ten KFI K. here mornings with Gail Weekdays six to nine and northern Colorado's voice. Thirteen ten KFI. Hi. I'm Darren Don, Drek of ethics at the University of Northern Colorado and you're listening to the whole show thirteen ten K. s K. A. Colfax, it's time to turn the page. broncos chiefs was not what broncos country was really hoping for at least wanted to make that competitive. But it was a game I figured they'd lose anyway. It's now time to move on. You've got the Los Angeles chargers and the listen they're they're trying to fight and claw their way back into this AFC west. You know they see the raiders lose yesterday and they're trying to see if how close they can get second place and and your who knows. I mean I still think the chiefs are going to have to you know. Really, screw up to lose this division it seemed realistic Friday but. The chiefs? That's what great teams do even when their offense isn't firing on every cylinder, they recover in different ways defensively. Special teams they found ways to win. That's what great teams do and bad teams find ways to lose even when portion or a unit is playing well, and that's what the Broncos did right now the Broncos are a bad team. I had them around two and four, three and three depending on how you want to look at it with the schedule changes This is where the test comes for for me to be honest with you. This is where I thought. I said the broncos would recover. This coming weekend starting with the chargers and it was supposed to start with Miami are no Miami was inbetween excuse me was in between the chargers or the chiefs end up patriots game a lot to be told still about drew lock. Vic Fangio as a head coach. We. Don't have the whole story in front of us. That's why we have the whole show. Okay. Had to do it once Colfax how to do want span. All right. That's going to do it for us. We back at its top techs Tuesday sir. Charles. Is the only whole again, that could win the nuggets gift package tomorrow he's the only one. Rest of you good luck. Bring your best stuff I want this top- text Tuesday to shine good night northern Colorado.

BK Previews The Falcons Game with Ryan Edwards

"There will be no death by inches. This is the broncos daily podcast with brandon krisztal. I want everything. I want all the meatballs and pasta. Happy thursday broncos country that some fun football tonight here so i know folks excited about the border war wyoming can the ramseys snappy four game losing streak at last check draft kings. Were three and a half point. Dogs you've got the niners and the packers and editor super banged up. Yeah the packers have running back cova dish. She's but seventy one percent of the niners snaps. i believe. Seventy percent of their scrimmage yards will not be available so i went to draftkings and check that out seven and a half was what i got it at And i think you should do the same if you haven't used wrappings yet by the way use promo code. Bk this sunday. they're covering their ensuring of one hundred dollars in bet. So you can check that out on draftking sportsbook. But the broncos and falcons are on as scheduled yesterday after i posted the podcast with rick lewis. We found out in the afternoon. Shelby harris was added to the covid nineteen reserve list. Not because he's tested positive. In fact he test negative a here again today but someone close to him tested positive so he had to go into isolation and i believe by lee rule required to miss five days and if they count that going back to wednesday he will miss the game sunday if they can count it tuesday which is when i believe he told the team and and then went and i think just got a hotel somewhere from not mistaken is is a story. I heard Will that count. And can't he potentially get on the plane sunday and join his team. Never home going to be a lot easier to execute. So i don't really know the details there. They could be without without shelby harris as we can. Yeah that no might pursell at is a a tough a tough road to climb to try to slow down todd early on the ground and then we know how much he's mammal create. Pass rush pressure up the middle But the broncos back on the practice field and wednesday off Get going today. they'll practice at one. Thirty depends on when you you hear this But business as usual no new positive tests to to reports even though there's spikes all over the country and we're hitting all time highs in in colorado certainly training in the wrong direction. I think they have an eleven percent. Positivity rate i saw on twitter when they're trying to stay below five is is the target. Obviously zeros really targeted five is a realistic target. So things headed in the wrong direction here and really everywhere. But the broncos nonetheless we'll get ready to go to atlanta to take on the falcons on sunday and again that's an eleven o'clock kick if you look at the numbers. The falcons have one of the worst pass. Defenses and football. I think they're ranked thirty first so drew lock and company will have a chance to really get going at least in. Theory against the falcons now running. The ball may be a little harder. But somehow they're six against run but they should be able to sling it around the yard and that could make for a really fun game of course if know. Aj boy a if he's not concussion protocol then on the other side it could be a really long day for the broncos. Defense if the falcons offense is on the field plus know about the idea of early in the run game. I wanted you different. Do lock though. Because i think more drew lock the better doing a couple of days after the big comeback win so drew lock joined us for zoom conference. Call the before practice On thursday afternoon and the first question asked you'd expect was about the big win sunday. Does it take any load off his shoulders going going forward and he you know relieve any pressure we could definitely build off of it. I don't know if it takes me load off. Anybody shoulders exhibited does and nice your job. You're sixteen leads this joggers. You let your guard down a little relaxed when we come in not fair to well this week south economy like that but now we carried it this week us momentum. I feel proud extremely well last week. Practice wise guys doing it on their own. We had to operate from all for a day last week. So maybe just taking some of the ways that we went about the week last week into this week i think back out curious in this weekend. Then secondly has been weird season yet the whole off season of remote learning and then seems like every week. Now you're having to be at home doing your virtual meetings and his a covert and everything do you just kind of roll with those punches. You figure that now. This is kind of become the standard operating procedure. Yeah you have to know there. No other way to do it. It's obviously upsetting you guys especially after went. That's always fun. The next day in the locker room tell stories about the game. We all knew what happened in ireland. Sorta game hanging out but you know the home for a little bit signal The knowledge that comes out of that. It's a drew kitja hamler each week. However you as billy net record that you didn't get a chance to august. I see we're blown a lot. He's finally getting a lot of practice. Rests like you said which has been really big for us as a group in me and him united. oh chemistry's well hopefully keep that rolling in a game. I'm seeing start with practice today. Hopefully back smile on. Get a little bit of the walks in the next day so we keep on it. It's definitely more of a build. Their job progressive. Gyp mike klis skin. I go to school all the reload stuff. You've done over the past few months. Is there anything in your prep work. You might keep later on down the road when this isn't part of the plate. Yeah there's definitely some things they end up doing would only do in the league being facility. There's a little more time view to sit all There's a couple of things. I'll take from this but i do like being silly with everybody. Do enter from coaches one on denial. Do allow boxers. Talk about it through that kind of no. that was all be together on zoom drive. Today you lose some time here and there. But i feel like we're going to make the best of drew. I was wondering it looked like the not that the shutdown but the shorter pass was emphasized. Wasn't it and what did you think about. You know just looking shorter than You know you normally. That was in the first half looking shorter than you normally do with the passing game kind of had to do the deepens without we were facing plays to be there certain rules of their defense and that was kinda gained by there might have been a player to check dow maybe field but that was part of the game plan this week or last week wanted to wanted to get the ball. Our hands guys make plays vance it on his defense and played a little bit different elvis up a couple times forces off the field without any points than we adjusted. A half from tearing your. Thanks for joining us today. Congratulations on the win is a part of you. After fourteen. eighteen hundred fifty five and three totti's in the fourth quarter to go to at shurmur. And say let me. Let's let down and go to the air and more abuse. Did you notice you were criticized nationally for dancing. I know that's you. What did you think of that that your dance blake continues to be a topic opposition. You know i definitely got it. Sits me and truthfully feel like person if not you know. Other people are more than one but that person. This might not be able to dance as well as i do. So now i will be our that way to. We'll see. Hopefully i dance me get better in. The public eye is at officer. Ali not stop yes. So that's that but as far as me could shurmur. We have great relationship. Non scientists. you release week goes however attack A pretty good idea of what we wanted to get out off your practice today. S see what. Thanks stick in Things many little modifications location so zero end up going with this by sunday. Hey drew how much do things kind of changed for you. In terms of the feel when you guys decide to go up tempo. No huddle linda do you wanna see. Maybe that you boost row the game rather than just when you guys fall behind. There's good time to do. You know you're talking about pretty biased quarterback here that simple for think three four years in college. So i would definitely say do enjoy that and do that Best same time in in the nfl game. There is a time to do it and we balance balanced pretty well because of how much you've practiced it because of being able to do because of how he did it earlier in the year and even at the training camp that helps us in those two minute drills. You'll say it's second nature to us and we've done it quite a bit. I've got to forty here. Drew one. Would you like to see alberto and no out there together. A little bit more. I know was quick to say that they've been out there together. Some you only got three tight ends. And then how cool was it to be able to throw both alberto and keiji their first touchdowns and you're going to do anything special with the ball once they get the cool pain on it. You gotta sign that to form package with albert and is definitely a dangerous on there's definitely ways molded into a game offers germs on a good job of that with those guys especially since our night doesn't have games under his belt to see to do on the field before you know. He made a whole package. Hold it and i think it's making good a statement for himself to be on the field a little bit as far as recessions. Go that i thought it was pretty cool in three hours. I shout out with rooms for festival touchdown. he didn't have any sign. The college ball Have signed professional ball and jj we. Hopefully they got the ball back forum. Yeah in the excitement. Oh we didn't know where it went. Hopefully someone has it. When that you're actually fallback. Stevens eight drew do practice. The dance moves before. Is it just something that comes through on the field in the moment. now. I don't brag som- Thinking about me in the dance moves in celebrations might not have been a lot of history on me. Because i've been doing that for a long long time been. Doing that. probably started with the bag in college. Became the winningest college. In quite honestly it brings off together. We'll have undoing. It brings joy enjoyed talk about it. Even go back after winning. Watch you like what are you doing now. It's it's just unveiling all as part of the younger generation of football might have a little more fun as far as dancing goes using all hyphen ever few more. Excellent eric von drew. Have you seen jerry. Jeudy respond the last couple of weeks ago. You mentioned last week. He was kind of had a different tone in the huddle. I think a career high in yards. Or maybe where you see him. Growing the most in preparation it takes. It's a lot to ask another rookie. That got no preseason games to comment and know exactly and then have the guy tactically would be your mentor. Slash leader be hurt in mice on an island there by itself as far as figuring out how to really know prep for a week. And i think like i said no preseason games. You didn't get really judge yourself against non team until his live. Of course he took that first game really hard on salt. Ever since then. I saw get better and better each week and same with his play in my opinion in. Come out again this week especially with missing yesterday's practicing be ready to fired up to that to Co founder editor to kind of piggyback. Off of that when you're a quarterback who you're still young in your career you've got these wide receivers who are rookies the as you mentioned in the offseason training camp what is the biggest most challenging thing between yourself and these guys to connect on. Is it kind of the scramble. Plays in figuring out where you want guys to go. How how they wanna come back to you because it seemed like on that second downplay. Jerry was a little frustrated when right before he converted third. Sixteen that you guys weren't able to on that one. What's that part of the equation. Like yeah it was much as you can preach being game speed and practice. Everyone hits a little different. Strive to get onto a game feel and now. Just we're adding rats every single game. We go out there. Practice rep surveying gordon very valuable but realize gametime decisions plays needs to be made without a doubt. The must style thing you can ask for. And that's why hopefully this is a big step for us this last week and to be able to take into this weekend and just be confident. Offense often Line quarterback running the whole whole deal. That's what we're looking for us today in practice out. Firemen tally in taken into this week. And hopefully keep building on these live. Rupp's keep didn't mentioned relationship with pat shurmur obviously relationship between acute playcaller super important. How is that progress throughout the year deepened on on a personal level. trust level. And you guys do you guys do anything krona viruses. Make things weird but to to get to know each other more on a personal level. Yeah we we try to the beginning and then all the crackdowns of rules in asking for meaning outside of silly. We kind of try to stay away from that. We both want to be in the building as long as we can and getting a tell us a little probably not being gets worse. Being in the building are released. It was a lot like going into a tuesday on waiting to get the game plan Like i have a pretty good idea. What's gonna come my way after washington on monday of what the defense doesn't rebound play spurs weeks was a roll of dice for male. Wasn't exactly sure what we'd be calling her reminds. Ob internet game now going into this week. The ideal on what. We're gonna call what we're really liking and sure enough. I was. I was right on most of what came my way that makes you feel it just makes me a little more relaxed getting on the same age. That's exciting to see that this early into the season with us together as far as games that i've actually played and we're kind of all right. Let's get to ryan atteridgeville before we do. I wanna remind you about chug water. Chilly chilly dot com use. Promo code chug water. Be to save twenty five percent. Jaguar chile is the spice of western. Life you can also find him in the grocer near you but might as well say that twenty five percent again. Juggler chilly dot com slash. Chuck water be k. And i think there's some snow on the horizon here in the forecast at the end of the weekend in the next week so We know that snowy weather and chile make a nice combo so chug water chilly dot com promo code chug water be right edwards part of the award winning duo on broncos country tonight. They won a car broadcaster association award for best night's show at our edwards radio on twitter and then of course. Big part of the broncos pre-game festivities with fred opening line as well as koa fantasy football hour and then he owes our countdown to kickoff so without further ado. Here's my chat with ryan edwards. Right i want to look back at the last game. And also look ahead to the falcons but sort of like everything else in this country other than we know. The election is taking up people's space in their brain but corona virus hitting all time highs the broncos not immune to that we saw john elway. And joe ellis. It was announced contracted corona virus than we hear about. Darren paolo somebody close to shelby. Harris years. Still getting tested because you have to do. Tv stuff at the building. I haven't been getting tested. So i'm not in there as much. But the one thing i noticed from afar and i mentioned this on twitter is the fact that the broncos have had these handful of cases from curtis motzkin to mike in downtown covid protocols. We heard about somebody else in the organization as well and then now the ones in recent weeks with a recent days. I guess from glasgow through the other ones. I just mentioned the broncos should probably be applauded that unlike say the ravens where they had to throw seven guys on the code reserve list. That wants these all seem to be happening in a vacuum. So i guess. Do you share that. Same sentiment with me that that they should be congratulated. If you will and it's not so weird thing to say when people are contracting it but that it's not spreading that these all seem to be their own isolated incidents while i mean i guess i guess the way to look at this is they've done a really good job staying in the intensive protocols and they made that decision weeks ago to just go ahead and do that and i think under the circumstances of what's going on in denver right now what's going on in colorado. That was clearly the right call so you just think about if they would've not done the intensive protocols and they would have kind of kept things as some teams have where you know. You're doing the best you can. But you're not necessarily keeping guys away from each other. Maybe there's a little bit of lax on the masks even out on the practice field. Well then you might see more significant Situations like we're seeing with thursday night football where you have basically none of your wide receivers available the forty niners and then for the packers. They're going to be without several their top running backs. And so for the broncos. Yeah they miss graham glasgow last year our last game and there are some significant moments in that game where you wish you would have had him but at the same time you know you found a way to win and so far you've been able to do a good job mitigating things. Now if you're gonna be without shelby harris. That's that is going to be a bit of a problem but you know you haven't these guys you know be able to go home. You're not doing thirty too many bubbles so some teams are doing those many bubbles where they're having guys go to hotel but in this case you know the guys get to go home so under that circumstance. They're going to be situations. I mean i have my kids going to school and if they come in contact i have to go through you know through the contact tracing and multiple tests just to make sure that you know i didn't contract it and that's kind of what we have to do. Yeah and so. I just hope that they continue to stay diligent. There's no reason to think that they won't i guess and i'm not asking you to predict future but just kind of gut feeling. Do we think we'll see some bubbles because there hasn't been a lot of real talk about other than the idea that playoff bubble could happen at the same time. I don't know when a plant bubble would necessarily start because the one thing that feels inevitable to me as we eighteen of not even weeks eighteen and nineteen so. I know that they're taking it. But i think they want to wait until at least december or later than that later into december to actually try to enact these bubbles. Yup i don't think they're gonna do anything like that. But i. i understand the arguments for it. We've kind of come out again from our show from broncos country tonight most of the time talking about as the many bubbles each team trying to institute that but as far as a league wide bubble. You're right. I guess logistics of that. Just don't make a lot of sense. Based on the sheer volume of people that would have to be bubbled. Now when you get into playoffs shrink your entire field down to fourteen teams. You can sit. Spread those out because you're going to different conferences until you get to the super bowl so there's some logistics that they could work out but again you know. We're projecting onto what will be january. And at this point could be worse. It could be the same. Maybe there's a little bit of improvement. I mean i would assume not based on you know kind of the trends in the fact that we're in the coldest weather months and for the virus epidemiologist but for the virus. I'm told the cold months of the worst so Under those circumstances i could see there being a little bit more momentum for a bubble for the play offs. But i don't think we're gonna see anything like that short of the season on the brink. I don't think we're seeing anything like that with the teams in the regular season and so speaking of the playoffs. For about three quarters on sunday everyone thought that blouse where a pipe dream for the broncos or completely just an afterthought and it was is drew. Lock done pat shurmur going to be one and done and they'll be going to a six offensive coordinator in six years. Who could you trade. At the trade deadline corrine jackson potentially tradable as anyone else that you could move and get some value back on. And then lo and behold they have one of the great comeback said any of us have ever seen certainly in recent years and definitely the best ones since peyton manning that same charges franchise on monday night there and twenty twelve and so i guess before we specifically break down the game. And and look ahead to the falcons. What a difference a day makes what a difference a quartermaine really from that phillip lindsay touchdown on. Now you're talking about hey go into atlanta all of a sudden five hundred you can get that win and that six or seven blouse bot doesn't seem out of reach at all. It seems almost like ability but of real very realistic possibility. Well it kind of goes back to the any given sunday adage of you know it's a game of inches right that we always say it's gate what's also a game a seconds. In this case you score a touchdown with one second left on the the play clock and even if it had gone down. Zeros was defensive penalty. They would play either way. But you're right. I mean the whole perspective. I mean if cage hammer drops that pass. Let's just say hey. The rookie accidentally takes his focus offer. Second because there's a lot going on or maybe his cheek lands out of bounds. I mean there's so many things and the razor's edge they walk doing. Bryce callahan doesn't come down with the interception. There in the end zone with mike williams will that they get points out of that. They're going to get points out of that. And the broncos lose there's just so many things that happened in that game that were not not repeatable really. I mean you go nine times out of ten in. The chargers probably come away with a win there. But the broncos found away and you're one hundred percent right that the entire focus has changed. The entire perception of the team has changed. I don't think it really should change all that much though in my opinion because you know we've say oftentimes on broncos country tonight that whether it's win or loss you kinda have to talk about the game as close to the same way as you possibly can now. You can add the caveat. Clearly they found a way to win or they found a way to lose or you know. They weren't able to hold onto their their lead. Whatever it is. We've seen plenty of that. But for me i i still feel like okay why. I'm not going to ignore what happened in the first half. I'm not gonna ignore what happened into the third quarter until that phillip lindsay run. I think we have to talk about those things. Not necessarily as but at least part of the whole puzzle because the thing is you're gonna come back from down twenty one points very often the nfl if ever like. I don't think that's going to happen again the rest of the year so you can't make that part of who you are. It's great you did. But let's let's actually focusing on the things that you did well and let's focus on the things that you didn't and try to learn from it and move forward but you're one hundred percent right. I mean it was. They were absolute sellers. By everybody's opinion about the broncos up until that game and then all of a sudden you know on our show people are like. Oh maybe they should be out there you know being buyers and it's like well let's slow down here a little bit. They're not going to be buyers in part because of what the expectation of the salary cap is next year and the expectation that at this point they still wanna see with these young talent developmental year. A little bit what they can do. But yeah you're percent right the. Nfl is a week to week league. Isn't it yeah absolutely. And so two to the point. You made about the way you in ben talking about each game and break it down with without going quarter-by-quarter a play by play. What are a couple of things that you feel really good about that you saw and things that really can concern you. I'll tell you the one that concerns me. And i know you guys have talked about it this week. I think everybody has when not talking about the election. Or corona virus is microcells. Absence was very noticeable. And i think you can just look at the rushing numbers to to see that. So that's the one that stands out to me the most in terms of of all the things that seem fixable or unfixable. You're not getting mike back so that that to me is a problem. You're going to have to figure out how to mitigate and i don't know if that's more sylvester williams or what the answer is but that's the one that jumps out to me the most. Oh absolutely and we talked shelby harris earlier this week about that now. He said he wasn't that concern. He said they'll figure it out but he acknowledged. I think we all can a what a difference it makes to over. Two hundred ten yards rushing against you that that's a problem and the chargers by a lot of the stats lot. Metrics should have won that game and we know that too. So it's it's kind of a an interesting point you know in a win. You get a chance to work on those things in a loss become ono. This team is sunk and clearly. Were looking at this team in a very different perspective and very different light That that is concerning for sure. Because you're talking about you. Know the next several teams. There are teams. They can beat you on the ground and be really in the. Nfl of eighteen can beat you on the ground but the fact is if you allow them to have a running game. Let's say against the falcons. If they were able to get todd gurley going on the ground. Well all of a sudden matt ryan becomes more dangerous. And i don't and i'm not a huge matt ryan guy. But he's got a bevy of targets out there including a hall of famer. Julio jones that i mean you you just don't want to get him involved in the game if you're to focus so much attention on the run game but i mean yeah. I'd say that. I was a little concerned about how they were able to run the ball. The first half you two yards rushing. That just can't happen. I'm your whether your home road doesn't really matter you just. You just can't have that kind of output. You've got to be better again. That might be where graham glasgow was missed in part there. You don't you don't have a lot of athleticism already on the right side of the offensive line with dotson so when you miss graham glasgow who who is starting caliber offense garden. This league Uh sean is a backup guard in this league. It's going to take a hit there. But i wanna see more consistent production overall from the offense but immediately i wanna see consistent production from the run game it was great to phillip lindsay ripped off fifty five yard. But then you only a hundred yards beyond eight or something like that in the game and that's including a fifty five yard run in there so she's got to be more consistent. That's going to help drew lock. That's gonna help the entire offense okay so then beyond getting the win and exciting comeback. What things do you like. They did well or what. What do you think they did well the that they can continue to build on. Well i mean. I think you you look at that. Fourth quarter and they were able to keep drew lock upright. I mean it was interesting that the chargers decided to stop blitzing in the fourth quarter They only blissed in one time but he had almost three seconds to pass in the entire fourth quarter the chargers recast joey bosa to hurt so that changes things for them for sure. Gregg jarrett is gonna be a challenge up the middle So you know it's not like it's gonna you know again. It's not like it gets easier. You know you got the raiders. They've got plenty of pass rush out there. Miami's been playing really good defense. So i i mean i'm saying things to build on like you were able to somehow give drew lock time. How did you do that. Do you need to go more twelve personnel at two tight ends in there you know. Do you need to give more options in in the past with running backs out of the backfield more of do a little more chip and release with your tight ends or running backs. So there's certain things that have happened in the fourth quarter. The rhythm the uptempo. I think everybody's been talking about that Watching drew lock kinda get out there and just kind of play football. It seemed like that's something that maybe you can build on But you saw you saw your young playmaker making plays and you did all this without tim. Patrick and courtland sutton unique contested. Catch guys in this offense Albert okwuegbunam ken be one of those guys but he can't recreate what you're getting with tim. Patrick or what you get with courtland sutton. So there's certain things you absolutely can build on that fourth quarter. I looking forward to seeing what they use of that going forward. Maybe they discovered something or maybe they kind of go back to what they were doing. But i think you can. We can all very plainly see when you have what fifty three total offensive yards in the first half. I think we can very plainly see that what they were doing in the first half into the third quarter wasn't working whatsoever so that there needs to be a little bit of tweaking there and maybe they discovered something well in. What do you think it'll take an. I don't know if he's just waiting to unleash. And maybe fans ankles part of it but when will we see more if any. And i haven't tracked the snaps. Alberto and and noah fant together because i think that will certainly stresa hell out of the defense regardless of. Who's on the outside and if it is a healthy. Tim patrick or even. It's judy and hamler daesean hamilton. One of those guys but those two tight ends in the middle there a problem when they're out there on their own let alone they'd be out there at the same time. I would love to see more. I think a lot of people love to see more of it especially as we're talking about more twelve personnel. I mean it's just not something. Pat shurmur does a lot of we know he likes to go eleven. He likes to go three wide and i wonder if you know. His his marriage to the eleven personnel will slow that possibility. But you know with albert. Oh gosh sixteen snaps. He made a lot of those snaps. Drew two huge is got a touchdown. So i feel like just. His play is going to warrant his usage. His play is going to warrant more opportunities for him in the red zone more opportunities on the field and and i think we're all kind of excited to see what that looks like. It just seems to be kind of a slow build but the reminder comes back to me again now every team is dealing with this but the broncos really did miss those preseason games some of those things that we could have figured out in those games if albert okwuegbunam puts on a show in preseason undeniable at that point. You're going to put him on the field as much you can't. He didn't get a chance to play until the patriots game like that was his first game in his. Nfl career. as you know but it's one of those things like if you would have been a star in the preseason games well it would have been kind of tough to keep them off the field but they were able to keep off the field because you know he was still rehabbing a little bit and they didn't necessarily need them now. They need him. They do need him. And i think i'm with you man. I'd like to see more well and quickly because we don't need to buy this bogged down in jake butt talk but He heads to. I are looks like they're gonna bring in troy. Fema golly if he can get through all the cove protocols you have a guy familiar not only with everything you do in the building from a just a team philosophy standpoint he also obviously was part of your entire offseason and preseason program before the broncos decided to to not make him part of their fifty three and he chose to to look elsewhere for opportunities. It's a bummer. For jake but i. I've been told that he's going to do all. He can to to be backed by the saints game. And you know you wanna see the kid play a little and have some success right. He had a chance. Obviously in the opener against the titans. He got him in the hero if one play by by the titans defense but just on a personal level. It's it's a bummer. That that jake get on track here and now it's kinda like the trains leaving the station where albert owes headed. And what you have. In noah fant and the fact they still are going to keep using nick vannett. There's seems to be almost no opportunity. Barring outside of injuries for jake butt to get back on track when he's healthy. I mean it's just what the nfl is right. I mean you you have just whatever situations whatever scenarios a path to success in the nfl whether you're a an early draft pick or late traffic or not drafted at all you get a shot you. Everybody gets a shot and one of the nice things about the the nfl especially about the broncos. Is you know if you can play. They'll put you on the field. Jake butt hasn't had chance to stay on the field though to show he can play. We just know from college that he has that ability and he would have likely gone earlier in the draft. If it weren't for those unfortunate injuries he suffered in the ball game. I of course. Yeah for a personal level. You'd love to see more Opportunities for him. But you're right at this point. I mean they've transit back to back Drafts with tight ends. You know one. In the first round one of the fourth round and both of those guys are producing on the field right now and then they bring in another tight end in free agency as you mentioned nick vannett. It's it's just a tough to see the field Under those circumstances. I mean if i'm if i'm jake body from advising jake body say just sorta hanging there. That's all you can do. That's all he's been doing and ignore try to keep the writing mind mindset about this whole thing There's you can't control what which can't control at this point you can do is just be healthy. And if comes a little banged up at some point then you get a shot and then he gets to do something with it but until then unfortunately The depth charge pretty clear right now and those guys are all producing night. So you touched. On the falcons. Little bit with the the matchup headache that julio jones can be in in matt ryan getting going. Their offense isn't terrible and help they play the cowboys. Any any offensive stats. But they're six in yards per game. They're second in passing yards They haven't been intercepted very much. Or or put the ball on the ground Have todd gurley rushing the ball. I think better than we've seen. Maybe here since the super bowl or even leading up to this role not last stretch where it seemed like there was something wrong with his knee and yet you factor in all their sketches not just julio jones. But what's the the thing that that really concerns you. Most i guess would be the broncos key to success in slowing that down and stealing a win in. Murphy's been stadium on sunday. Well i mean. I think you have to point to their offense. I'm i'm not really all that impressed with their defense and made sure that they definitely have some ability there as image with gregg jarrett. They can get you up the middle but their offense as you mentioned. I mean we know how prolific it can be. You know. I mean they don't they don't really throw a lot of interceptions you know. They've only had four interceptions seven. Total giveaways their top ten in that. So it's not like there's going to be a ton of opportunities to get turnovers on falcons. The one thing that i do like the matchup and i think this one is is one that needs to be kinda hammered. Home here is. The falcons are one of the worst red zone offenses like for all they do as far as the numbers as you mentioned the the passing yards per game points per game. They're twenty six which pretty good. They're twenty seven th in the league and red zone and the broncos of course on defense our third there forty eight percent. they don't allow a lot of conversion. so what the rocco's kind of has to be here as it relates to the match up to watch at least. Here's where breaking down is. Can the broncos defense be the ben dope break defense that they've been and that's what they typically rs you look at the numbers if they can be that they can keep the falcons out of the red zone or keep them keeping kicking field goals. Then it's up to the office to play the complementary football and get it in the end zone. Because meanwhile the falcons defense gives up seventy four percent completion or sorry. Seventy four percent conversion in the red zone twenty nine in the nfl and they're also yards per play their dead last six point five six which is a huge turning factor so the broncos will be able to move the ball on the offensive side of the ball they just got to play complementary football in this one and they get they have to score the points when they get there and simultaneously. Not let the falcons with that high flying offense moved the ball into the end zone and and get conversions. But like i said matchups on here at least on paper. Do do get the broncos a shot in this one and we'll just see if they can play with the momentum that they gained off the chargers win then and the confidence for for those young guys. Four k j handler can jerry. Jeudy had his first. You know really consistently huge game. I guess it'd be the best way to to characterize it. Can alberto get going. Even more noah fant obviously be a big part of that. Because the falcons pass offense pass defense is terrible there rush events actually six in the league and they're still dead last in yards per play. Lets you know how bad their past events is. Somehow it's thirty first someone's worse i guess in better run. Defensive is gonna do the math on that. Because i'm not sure who's ranked thirty second in passing yards and i guess higher in rushing to to somehow be better than the them by one the broncos red zone offense is actually worse than the falcons at twenty nine th in the league. But as bad as a falcons red zone. Da's maybe the broncos can improve those numbers weekly away. The broncos red zone problems we y you know like explaining away matt ryan and julio jones at calvin ridley and hayden hearst and todd gurley explaining away and their offense of line is actually a pretty good offensive line explaining all of that and you're twenty seven and red zone like that that's and you. You scored still scored twenty six points per game. Like that's kind of a remarkable to score twenty six points per game be top thirteen in the league and yet your red zone is one of the worst i mean but like i said it basically just shows that they they moved. The ball will like the. They're going to move the ball. That's just that's just kind of what it is. You just have to get them into third down when you get the red zone. And they're probably not go. At least. the numbers supported it. Probably not going to convert. You gotta watch out for young way coup. Who has found a home found his footing so to speak there. So the broncos are anywhere from three and a half four point dogs. I think it's back down to three and a half that. I saw at least a little while ago. When i checked draftkings they were four. I think on tuesday How do you see how do you see it shaking out. I i like the broncos road dogs but we know there should be some fans there because georgia of course lets you know plenty of fans in the stands for college and pro games so what you see unfolding on sunday. I like the broncos of the money line here. I think that that is a good. I mean if you want the points. I think there's something wrong with that. An enemy the points are always weird thing especially with rogane but the nfl's weird this year you know. The road games aren't what they used to be. So it's kinda hard to because like if this game was at home. Let's just you know. Spend it that way is this game was at home. It would probably be a pick em pretty close to it. But roy teams are basically kind of like even with the home teams like this. You're as really shown to be a significant home advantage. I think the last time. I looked i think before this last weekend. It was fifty three fifty one in one so home home. Advantage is minuscule so it's just funny to me that we have these conversations about home versus road. I mean you have the travel. Sure that's that's an early game but at the same time it hasn't really shown to be a significant advantage to be home or away especially home in this case. So i mean i i i look at this game and say i'm going to help some bets out there on the money line. I might have a couple of bets in there just in the points to hedge hedge a little bit but i definitely like the matchups in this game and you know you're just took on a team that choke sore or has problems in the fourth quarter right. The chargers have historically had a lot of problems closing out games. And you're taking on the team that may be the worst in the league at it. Next in the falcons three three games this year or they had to ninety five percent chance to win in the fourth quarter and they lost those games. I mean that's one of those chargers. Yeah right right and you take it to them and you see what happens. And so that's the thing is could the broncos take it to them go after them. And then we'll the falcons buckle under the pressure of ono. Here we go again. Because that's what happened to. The chargers and broncos got the benefit of it all ryan. I appreciate the time. We'll be listening on broncos country tonight and then of course all the stuff you do on pre-game from the bet fred opening line to the fantasy football hour and then of course hosting countdown to kickoff to take right up to kick off in atlanta. This week i appreciate the time and now we'll catch up with him anytime about. That'll do it for us here. On the broncos daily podcast tomorrow football.

Well it's monday broncos country and we're certainly not going to call it a happy monday. Not when you lose thirty. Seven twelve in fashioning did not thirty seven twelve in any fashion which is not acceptable. And you'll hear dalton rising. Say that but you go to las vegas first trip there. To sin city is the nfl. Obviously now has a team there in your rival the raiders. And you lay that kind of goose egg. And what's frustrating is at the broncos had plenty of chances to take control that game or certainly stay in that game and quarterback drew lock and the rest of the offense as well as at times. The defense has let them down. the raiders. were begging the broncos to take advantage in the first half and whether it was the end of the half with the holding penalty on noah fant and the interception by drew lock the inability just to put points on the board. The defense came to play in that first half. It was ten six at halftime. It was thirteen six until that. Josh jacobs touchdown with thirty six seconds left in the third quarter but five turnovers no takeaways. And you're sitting here scratching your head now. You couldn't get anything going on the ground you had had to abandon it at some point and you really just couldn't sustain drives the broncos even though third down numbers weren't atrocious. They weren't efficient enough when they needed to be. There were seven fifteen which you'll take most weeks. Forty seven percent. Actually better than the raiders. The raiders came in as the second best team on third down nearly entire league. Whereas the broncos came in twenty ninth. I think our thirtieth on third down but too many three and outs too many more. Plays for the raiders. Dave logan on the broadcast said to start the second half. It was twenty three to three. Because the raiders dominating time of possession over all that that number ended up being thirty six minutes and thirty eight seconds at twenty three twenty two. And you can't turn the ball over five times not win the game. Vic fangio said as much dave logan. We'll hear from vic fangio. We'll hear from drew lot. Do locks not going anywhere. He is the quarterback until the end of the year. You know last week. I played had the conversation with big alan. You heard him say he's not worried about drew lock. I don't know if that's still the case. But he's more worried about the play calling and and the opportunity put drew lock in position to succeed. You'd have calvin anderson. Start your fifth different tackle on your depth chart fourth different to play there this year. Obviously john james opted out. But no jake rogers demar dotson was available but only in an emergency setting. So calvin anderson got his first start. The broncos didn't give up a lot of sacks. But i do want to go back and check the pressure numbers. I haven't seen those yet. Didn't do a lot of digging though. Either i ended up having to do post. Game broncos. react for man. Mike reiss who was battling a cold and losing his voice. So that kinda threw off my my normal post-game routine but drew lock was flush out of pocket. Plenty although it's one of the things we have to go back and look and say was he flushed because of pressure or did he just kind of sent something and bail more quickly than he needed to. So the the broncos now at three and six for the fourth straight season three and six through nine games. It's confounding and there's plenty of blame to go around vic fangio indicate here in just a second and you can start at the top visit. Joe ellis fault. Is it the bowl and families. Fault is it is it john. Elway's fault is vic fangio vault drew lock and the rest of the team. I think there's there's plenty of blame to go around. And now you get a good dolphins team coming in this weekend. So no rest for the weary after that it's the saints. Don't love drew brees or not so that would sort of change things when the saints come down but the saints have a really good really good team this year and and it'll be a challenge thanksgiving weekend but right now you gotta worry about a team. That's won five in a row. Then you've got to figure out how to get this thing turned around. So i could sit here and just keep talking at you. You'll hear my conversation with ryan edwards in just a little bit. But he and. I talked on broncos react. So we'll get thoughts from those broncos country night bullets here from the guys who were on the field vic. Fangio is ed coach. And then you live from drew. Lock bryce callahan. Really pissed off. Dalton reisner and josie joel. So we will get to drew's chat after vick's. We'll do vic. I vic with dave logan and the big zoom call. Because obviously there's more detail in zoom call at times is based on the time constraints. Dave has anywhere from two to three minutes. Typically and jim can go from five to ten depending on whether it was a winner a loss typically and sometimes for some of the players but for for vick and drew before we get to victim reminding about chug water chilly chug water chilies. Spicer western life go to chug water. Chilly dot com use my promo code chug. Water became save twenty five percent. You can find your local grocer but it is chilly weather here on the horizon. Although we gonna have a really nice week here in the mile high city it's going to be mild in the sixties and seventies here the next few days then it's gonna start getting colder but you're listening to me anywhere you got friends and family that you know love chili go to chug water shield dot com promo code chug water. Bk to save twenty five percent are. Here's vic fangio. Game with dave logan tough one for sure. I'm not even sure where to start with this one. But offensively you guys turn it over five times four interceptions in it. You don't need me to tell you that you just can't win a game. Turn the ball over that many times. Now that's pretty obvious. Seven artists ever been done. But i wish we have to do a better job of protecting the ball to do a better job of making first. Downs sustaining drives whether it be through the air or through the ground right now. We're struggling in both areas to be consistent there and we gotta get some more critical stops on third down on defense touch. Your defense honestly played pretty well in the first half Down ten to six and you throw an interception that could have you have a holding call on a play that would put you in the lead but then in the second half. I thought defensively you wore down. You're out there a long long time and the second half we were know the offensive struggles and some of that you know we gotta get them. Stop theirselves defense. So that's a two way street. That's a team step and we gotta do better in both areas less question you now. Three and six. You know you've got You've got seven games left after a game like this when it it just nothing seemingly works on offense as a head coach. What what what's your message to the team. How do you get them to to move forward into into play better. Well all of our fingerprints are on coaches players. Everybody involved in it and we've all got to take a good hard look at it. We have been doing that. Obviously we haven't found the right formula solutions but we're going to grind away at and get ready to play good miami team next week. Okay vic thanks thank you. Everyone fingerprints are on this offense defense. Certainly special teams got more people calling for tom. Mcmahon's job i'm not going to be one of those people may just happen or won't but the special teams continues to be an issue. The hunter renfrow punt return. The usual crack back block really had nothing to do with the return. So it's just more bad coverage and and that's a concern but the biggest concern is drew. Lock throwing four exceptions. So here's vic fangio on his postgame press conference on zoom in. That was where it began was how how bothered are you. How big of a concern is it. That drew lock went out and threw four interceptions especially so many in the fourth quarter. Well obviously it's a very much of a concern obviously four interceptions You can't win turning the ball over that much We've got a good job of evaluating why we've thrown these interceptions can do the help in our everybody's fingerprints on that performance coaches players and we all have to take a good hard look at it which we have been on a weekly basis but we haven't found the right formula yet to be consistent on offense or lock again you see has confidence shattered. And if so how do you rebuild it. 's only one way to rebuild. You gotta go back to work. And he's got his start experienced experiencing play We've got to devise are passing game at our offense are running game to where he can have be more successful. I see a lot of good throws by him. I see a lot of good catchy by receivers but we seem to have that Player to that You where we throw a pick or that stops a drive so we've got to be more consistent and more efficient select bus just glide in you pull lock when things were going so bad maybe you know earlier in the game when you still when your defense was still fighting hard and give ripping a shot. Well you know we're committed to drew. And the more. He complained the better. He'll be and he's got to fight through this. Like all most young quarterbacks do at some point in their career. And we're gonna continue to play a big burst that he expressed rusty. You had been hurt in the ribs in any way Drew i mean the the trainer sent out a little something but by no means did he think that drew or the trainers think. It wasn't wasn't anything that he couldn't play with. We didn't sam. I told it offense coaches to closely watch him and then he was laboring at all. We're favorite and then The sequence of plays right before the half. What impact did you think that. Add on the game. Overall the the nullify touchdown followed by. Obviously you know could have been thirteen. Ten our favorite half or ten nine their favourite half if we don't go in and scores so obviously it's a big swing there so this critical. What kind of impact position have like right from the start off that kickoff. You're starting back at the three and you had bad field position most the first half now. We didn't start well. There was a poor decision. On the return. there we ran it and Obviously feel position does play a big part in any game and that was a part of the game that obviously came out on the short end of the stick their dick twice in the red zone there on defense One one time you had. What nine or ten players undersea. On another time. You had a content with twelve players on the. Who's responsible for that. And how does that happen. Well the one for sure that you're allergic to you know we're we're in a personnel group that we play a lot down there. One of the guys just ran out that once ran off. Feel that once boasted. Then the other time the it was there was confusion as to what personnel they had on the field which was are affecting our call. And that's why we called the time out after a few more next with run d seeming. What was the key. Sarah or to the poor performance and then gashing especially in the second half good running team obviously And we didn't we just didn't play the run well enough you know particularly if you use your edge in a game it's gonna show up in the run defense more so than anywhere else in thinking that fourth quarter you know. We just weren't sharp as you need to be playing the run. Yeah vick with a tough stretch coming up. you know. Things are only going get more difficult. What is the mood in the locker room right now. Where do you think this team mentally moving forward. Well we'll see where they're at. We get back to work on the next tuesday and wednesday and see whether out. Obviously everybody's disappointed All of our fingerprints are on that game coaches and players. Then nobody's happy about it obviously fact. Everybody's probably did very disappointed disgusted by that. A ten six game at halftime can turn out like that. But turnovers will do that too and we've got to play better coach. What is your message to the team. After this game right now well i message was the second half was unacceptable. We didn't play or coach. Good enough in that second half to stay a game. That was a four point game at halftime. And all of our fingerprints out with got regroup as you guys to. We got another really good team that we gotta play against coming up here shortly and we've got to get regrouped refocused and get our energies in our motions pointed in the right direction on ride. Our much on in terms of pressuring car was that with there. Were black or was it him. Throwing quick our our pass rush You know overall on third downs in particular wasn't one quite good enough. We were rushing for. Because they're very good passing team. We're playing coverages there to help with their passing game and they're good group receivers and you're right to pass rush wasn't good enough there for the most part known historically derek carr gets rid of the ball really really fast yes. Von miller gotten too many talked about it last week but there didn't have to do too much. He did just enough. Sixteen twenty five no sacks not dis Hundred fifty four yards. But when you run for over two hundred yards on the ground you don't need that much from your qb. And josh jacobs. Those twenty one carries one hundred twelve yards two scores devante booker. Hey we were meant. Ram sixteen carries eighty one yards and two. Tv's as well here's drew lock postgame. I appreciate druze. Honesty and his confidence does seem to almost never a waiver. And you'll hear that. In the conversation with dave logan and then it is zoom. Post game. Presser her as well. But here's drew. Lock in a dave logan following this tough loss. Tough day at the At the job site. I guess you guys had some had some opportunities in the first half and just seemed to sorta short circuit. Just talk about what what happened in the first half that just sort of bogged you guys down a bit. Yeah it was just me. It's the same old song and dance. Just hurt ourselves on third down Anytime that you know. I mean we're below fifty percent on third downs. That's gonna be tough. You know that's gonna get you off the field and put put their car in a really good offense out there on the field. I thought defense in an awesome job. Today stop them weekly. Put them. I put them in some bad physicians in they out a couple of times the the playwright before halftime you score on the. I don't know if it's a zone read. You kept the ball. You waltz into the end zone. The holding cohen noah fant and then he come back the interception right before halftime. Tell me if you can't kind of what you saw that play. Yeah you know is the backer. Mike backer made sure he opened up and he did. And the whole defender. You know allowed me to sodium behind but it was a safety that drove on it since we were in the red zone. They don't have to worry about in beat over the top and he drove it and made the play on. It's a ball. I probably should thrown back on that play But i thought i had it knee undercut it drove on pretty well. Yup a dead horse but you have four picks today. How how do you mentally as a young player. I mean how. How do you go about or do you even know how you go about. Sort of battling through where you are right now and where this offense is right now. I know how. I've had some rough years of football in my life You know the only thing different about it is. It is professional football now. It's not college football where you know. She's a bunch of kids coming plates grown men with jobs and livelihoods in. I think that's one thing we've got to keep in mind. There's there's no quitting on this right now. there's no comment with your head down to work in our snow. United just pouting is a ton of people that would love the opportunity that we have right now. What we do and It's our job to represent the team in the state than we're doing and that can be done if we'd all come in and just keep working enough. Drew appreciate they so now. The question of do you believe drew. Lock your advantage of say that. He was going to be their quarterback. He's got at least thirty seven games and and hopefully more but i think consistency is something that you're going to need to see. And you'll hear ryan edwards talk about that. You hold your josie jewel talk about consistency as well drew. Lock postgame presser. I wasn't part of it because i was racing to the studio. And the last minute call to fill in for. Mike reiss and broncos. react But i have gone back and listen to the audio cuts out. So i added that part out for you But the first question was more detail on The interception to heath to end the first half yard. And talk to dave logan about it. But that's where drew started his postgame presser. As well you'll hear again a choppy at it. All i did was take away about a minute of them trying to figure out where the audio and video went so but this is drew lock beginning his postgame pressure on that first. Half interception down there. The game was tied. Set on that window to jerry In the middle backer open up the right lane. Dropped a little bit. Didn't drop enough to where i felt. It could be a problem on the thrill. But now the sake you drive on it may display on it but the back more pistola eric Did you get dinged up. And and what's your level frustration right now. Nothing i'm fine because you definitely frustrated after they like that self anita work on us opening you better at so pushing occupied accident wanted. The raiders. haven't had that kind of success. Intercepting passes today throw some looks at you that were different than was on the film going at this game not necessarily gave us pretty normal looks. We're expecting. I just didn't put the ball in their hands. There by a thought it out i keep your. Do you feel like you're making progress in certain areas and improving your game or center for interceptions but if tempted to talk about that but just holistically. Do you feel like you're taking steps forward in some areas. Yeah i do. There's a lot of areas of taking steps aboard on but not play. Nfl only played quarterback. There's a lot of areas that eventually pop up that weren't talked about in the week for even for just a lot of stuff like goes into play position. I got to keep learning. Keep balancing good place from bad place want somebody. There's a point there in the second half before the win. The game got out of hand there. That things were getting worse for you. What our you keeping yourself. Golden you know as far as going back out there for the next series while you know doesn't pay me this base doesn't steer us on for me to quench on anything allowed to carry me off the old firm. It's just that's just what it is and we play quarterback can have bad days. Good days it's going to limit the add on the bad tour to dr drew. Where does your stand. And how do you remain confident with the offense. Not getting the results. Clearly you guys and now seven games left is time. Do you believe to kind of get this thing back on the rails and and for both the offense and use specifically yeah. There's always time there's always time if you have a mindset that's good and that's positive obviously have a very real mindset. I realized that it's not very good today. And it hasn't been very good the past couple of weeks but you know doesn't get better if you dwell on it. Keep moving forward and you keep looking into next week and plant. Just keep pushing also from what you saw last week when you were looking at their game video where they more aggressive coming after you than they had been against other now. That was there that was that was their deal. You know they were gonna come get us and we had a good idea on what they're gonna do and you know it's crazy miss imas one or two You know i did see one or two to a place you know. It's my job to see that. Get us protected and you know when he missed a couple of those and game. They're gonna they're gonna get you there and you get to and it's going to be negative play in a better job of making them not that negative plays when when i do miss we do. Miss drew lock. Says all the right things in wins and losses. Now it's about doing the right things and you hear him talk about getting back to work and and his teammates are are echoing that maybe none louder than dalton reisner the wiggins colorado native knows all about the rivalry with the raiders and knows That this is not what broncos country needs to see your wants to see your expects to see and he was asked by andrew mason. How do you describe The this loss to the raiders. That was How he kicked off his zoom press conference and here's dalton answered it unacceptable we that was unacceptable performance today and we know that we're going to dwell on that but i don't care. What the reasoning is. We obviously have watched the film yet. We don't know what the reasoning was but that was unacceptable from office standpoint and we need to be better. Those claims simple. We got to be better fellows and we. We weren't good enough today. Our team win. Don't how do you guys as an offense kinda keep competence flint. When you haven't been able to score to the degree that you want to we're always gonna keep confidence all the faith in the world and my quarterback in my running backs and the elephants lined wide receivers this organization whenever it is. There's gonna come a day where we look back on right now today and we're gonna be smiling saying man. We're glad we went through those hard times. Now look at us. And i got all the faith in the world in the organization and my teammates in you where i get the conference. I get it from my teammates. We were. We were every single day together. I look up to so many guys on this football team. I'm so thankful to be a part of this team. I look around on my teammates and they pushed me. They gave me the confidence. I could name thirty forty plus guys that are out there today that they give me confidence that were be a great football team like i said the previous answer you know. It was unacceptable from an office standpoint marquette in time for one more after this dalton anger frustration analysis. Where where are you at your head right now. A little bit of all of them angry and frustrated for sure like you guys said you know grownup broncos country not only just grown up being a big bronco fan but being a part of this team working with these fellows like i said the words unacceptable man. We need to win. Football games like this new play better is an offense and i can't give you guys analysis right now. I can't tell you exactly what went wrong in that football game. I can tell you that. I think there were a lot of good things. That might be a shocker to you guys. But i really do think there was a lot of good things speaking on the offensive line but i think that there is also things that we got better at three or four players to mess up a whole football game. You guys know that a lot of emotions right now but but those emotions don't override. We're sticking together. Anyone can go away from this program. No insert giving up on us. Whatever it is. We don't want that. They can all the matters. But we do here internally. I can promise you ain't giving up. We're not giving up. Coaches are coached. Aren't giving up on us. We're not giving up on our fans. We're not giving up our city. We're going to give him up on each other. Also kind of went into that answer. My question dolphin. Where does that confidence come from his at the culture you guys created because the outside looking in is three and six it looks ugly today obviously was a mess or does your confidence come from that you guys can get straightened and show some improvement of its second half. It comes from each other. Exactly troy answered your question man. It comes from the culture that we've created come from the locker room at us being. You know each other's teammates you know we're not looking at each other pissed and point fingers and and saying this things over and looking at like somebody y'all might be looking at it and saying it's a mess you know of course. We know that we have to be better. But we're looking at each other and saying we love each other. We know that we can do this. We believe in each other. Screw being three and six. We were way better than that and saint kind of sounds like the same old record the same old thing. Same where better football team than this. But we are and we're gonna continue to believe that and we're gonna continue pushing each and every week. I heard drew answer earlier. We're not gonna so can we're going to continue to push and wanting to get more wins on the board or they're going to help from the other side of the ball as well. You'll hear frustration in both bryce callahan josie jewels voices We will listen to them. And then we will hear my chat with ryan edwards from broncos react on koa broncos radio networks. Bryce callahan i. He's not a man of many words he just doesn't give long answers i think he's a smart kid on a lot of dummies at rice So i'm not. I'm not saying that he just he's not very loquacious and he doesn't talk to is very often but he's playing at a pro level according to pro football focus and You know he and his teammates not their hands on the ball enough yesterday. That's for sure But here's bryce callahan. Missed last week's game with the ankle injury Back against the raiders. And he knows that this team has to be better than what they put out there on the field against vegas gotta do better planning simple liking. Go out there and put that on the field. We gotta go do better so next week. We gotta come together. We got to be focused now. Practices have got to be detailed notes. Gotta get the ship turned around. Bryce ten points a lot in the first half thirteen halfway through the third hole. How small is your margin for on defense right now with the offense like it is. I know as a defense know we we could get more turnovers and stuff and helped offense out there we just gotta we just play better because on you know the the run game. I know it's not like necessarily your forte but just as as a defense collectively the run game that have been issue. Yeah i mean. I can talk miss the tackle in the wrong game so you know just for me i know. Make the play attack on figuring. That's what i say for everybody else. Take any satisfaction in your season this year. We haven't really talk that you're playing well but you're just defensively for whatever reason you guys. Just it's been tough sledding slots four weeks i mean it'd be better for getting winds through then celebrated. We're losing. I mean i don't. I'm not trying to worry about my status from trying to actually win football games. That's what makes football fun. So that's also how big of a challenge is those two drives in the third quarter where they have the ball for about six minutes each time and just kinda move the ball slowly and steadily donna field was at the turning point in your mind. Yes that's kind of where things started to get out of hand. You know as a defense you know we just got to find those those ways to get off on third down and you know. Give offense a chance to for someone called. It's estimators will give second. Is there anything you guys have done. Better stock those drives in those feels bigger cashing loans. No i haven't looked at the tape. You just gone off the field of the game just getting on third downs sites this answer. All right and then finally josie jewel. Who was the second leading tackler for the second week in a row just behind alexander johnson. They might be battling for leading tackler but josie is going to have to have a big day. He had ten to to alexander's twelve. Justin simmons right behind him at nine but josie went into the game. Seven or eight tackles behind. So he's gonna have to have a twenty five from alexander johnson in order to catch him. But night josie joel. Post game was asked what happened with the defenses momentum. Ten six at halftime. Did you guys run out of steam or oh can you put a finger on our point. Two y the second half played out the way. Did i think details. I talk about details all the time but it really is. You look at the gap kings. We're in whether it'd even fire zones or whether we'd be displaying covered you know three or one and we just gotta be able to stay in our gaps and bills that keep that has seemed gone. We can't we can't run out so you know i think it was. Maybe may we lost energy in there somewhere. And i think we We didn't do our job specifically on every single play. Might we did first. Half which was nice. Josie you've been around for a couple of these three and six starts. What is what gives you hope that this team can turn it around. I mean you just look at look who we got. I mean we got. We got some players here And really disgusted positive. I mean we haven't had the best start but all we can do is is look through next game. All we can do is try to fix the problems we had here and there's really no room for negativity in why abbott when it's not gonna make you better plus kind of defeats what i was to ask because you know look like you guys are fighting hard clay in you know well and keeping the team in the game in the offense just kept given the ball disheartening for you guys and especially in that third quarter when he had only three plays basically you might a guy guest. You get a little demoralized when the offense can get it going. We try not to look and wash off. It's too much. I mean we're on the sidelines. Usually talking to each other about when you do better on the next series and stuff like that. I mean yeah you always want everybody to play better But really all we can do on the defense focus on ourselves and really focus on how we can better the team. We takeaways to you know. They've gave up a couple of times in a. We need to take the ball away from other people. Fumbles interceptions. so that's something when you stressed because you talk you talk about details. I think on a jacobs touchdown there in the third quarter. You guys said ten guys on the field and the next On you call time out with twelve guys on the shield. Has that happened. And who's responsible for that the players. I mean we just need to be able to know who's in there. We had a couple of different personalities that we put in this week for the personnel. So we just need to know who's on a field and when they're on the field. Somebody's hurt somebody else. Needs to step in And i think that was the problem. Was maybe somebody who's hurt somebody else to try to come there. And so it's just all on his players time for a few more next pounding rosie in terms of the run game. Obviously lots of turnover. But what are you alexander wrestle. Linebackers has to do with that with those front guys You know better cohesive and prevent times. Gashing raiders had my second half. I think it just comes down to whatever coach calls. We just got to be able to re ready to feed off each other. And sometimes don't trust the guy or sometimes if you're not sure which gathers supposed to be and you know maybe you're not gonna hit his hard and i think we say i saw a couple of those today were linebackers or somebody else in the back. as hard as we usually do And that made a soft in the run game a little bit. So i mean like i said it's going to be coming out of the details and really understanding what gap you got. Every single play no matter what fence we call com. Even if they're you know running plungers why off their guys power counter marquez. On follow up since i got one last one for you said go. Jordan mark dalton. Don was saying joking that he understands people on the outside are probably losing faith. Maybe not believing you guys have circle the wagons mentality. What is it about the culture of the locker room makes you guys make you specifically you guys get through this. Yeah i mean we've seen it before but also know the guys we got. We can be good. I mean it's just. I keep on talking about its execution doing small details and being kissing we. We've had a couple of great stops three and outs offense at a couple of drives and you see little momentum shifts where we can be really good and it's just that consistency of will do it the whole game and not just that second half now just the first half and run out of steam do throughout the whole game and i think we all see marcus apple as you. Well know a growing up. It's tough for young team to do in this league. How do you define success. The rest of this year just just to be able to see consistency on the field. I don't know if there's any i mean. Yeah you wanna have you wanna win out. You want to win every single game on the on the calendar but really. I think we'll all people are worried about his consistency as what we do. The rest of the year is being able to show. We can play Showing that we can be consistent and you a small. Thanks right Which man will get the win. So you know i think it just comes down to that and then at the end of the day that should produce win so it's really what we're looking forward to know cancel. How quickly can you turn. The page broncos are off on monday. It's always there off. Takes guys getting treatment. They'll be back in tuesday. Just a lift in get work done. They're actually meeting virtually say had been. I'm not sure they're gonna continue that. Maybe i'll ask vic fangio that when we talk to him later this morning or i guess just afternoon right edwards l. was nice enough to hop on the react. Show with me last night. I filled in for mike reiss. And so we'll just jump right into it. Skip all the pleasantries. you can catch him every weeknight. Though broncos country tonight and then big big part of our pre-game festivities from the bet. Fred opening line. Koa football out and then he hosts countdown to kickoff. That starts two hours before kickoff for two hundred twenty. Five minutes depending on the kickoff but Ryan of course does a great job and so here are his thoughts and our post game conversation sunday night following this stuff thirty seven. Twelve loss to the raiders. Certainly through the the first half into the third quarter There were times that you felt like the broncos were just so close. I mean even the interception before halftime. Just one of those like okay. You know they get that. And and who knows what the momentum but instead it's a complete swing on the other side and interception you get nothing out of it and it just really is kind of addicted of how this game went well so we could go a lot of different directions and i mentioned right before the break. That the raiders were doing all they could to let the broncos only stick around but take the lead and j t. The brick texted me. That i think dave said it on the on the broadcast. I imagine that's what you were seeing from your vantage point. That's what makes it even more frustrating. It's one thing when you get your teeth kicked in from the get-go it's another thing to be in it and make so many mistakes that you you cost yourself the game in so many different ways well exactly and that was so many times that the entire game was like that so we had the interception the jamarcus walker offsides. That gave the raiders new life. They ended up getting points on that drive. You had the sack ended up. I think you had a hold or something like that. Adam you just go ahead. Sorry sorry keep going. Okay so just i. It just seemed like the whole time that The broncos find themselves in situations. You know you had you the ball back and then Daesean hamilton fumbles it. And i i mean i was really close out his news down but if they called it down the price stayed with it but instead they decided to go that way so yeah i was just an overall kind of a upper strating. Fans are obviously upset. Think justifiably upset. But you know in the end and what we're gonna do on broncos country is what we always do. It's kind of trying to figure out. Okay what wrong. How can they fix it in time for the next game. Because that's really all this is and for the broncos they're gonna give drew lock the remaining seven gains and we're going to hear a lot of hyperbole over the next twenty four to forty eight hours from people about is he the guy isn't he the guy. Should they be thinking about quarterbacks in the off season none of that really matters what matters right now is you've got folks on the next game. You gotta dig out of it. You gotta find a way to dig out of it and that's really what the team is gonna start doing tomorrow into tuesday while and then you look over the horizon. Not that you want to look too ahead because you do want to at least dissect this and figure out what went wrong before you turn the page you get a team. That's won five in a row with a really good looking young quarterback into a two dunga by law and the dolphins come in you. You probably pencilled in as a win early in the year. I don't think anything pencil and as a win at this point. And so i guess before we look at miami specifically just. How do you go about doing that. Looking at figuring out what went wrong and what seems the most correctable in the short term. Well the turnovers is the most obvious thing when your mind is five Whether at home laura on the road doesn't really matter That's that's significant and special teams. Obviously put them in some some bad positions today. So you gotta fix Couple of those things on special teams. That's been a little bit of a problem throughout the course of the season. But i mean yeah. I mean drew. Lock him throwing four interceptions. That's an easy one. You know right and i mean you you just You can't i gotta go through and watch it tomorrow. I'm going to figure out what their average starting field position was. But i assume it was really really bad off the top and it was the to the seven. The to the twenty was like when the twenty. You're starting field position not great especially when only happens once. Well right exactly. We're talking about team with a pretty narrow margin for victory almost in any given week. And the raiders been playing pretty efficient football. We came into this game knowing what they going to try to do. You knew they're gonna try to run the ball. You knew that Derek carr who has been throwing a lot of interceptions was probably not going to give the ball up and the broncos basically base. i mean basically. This game played out in a lot of the ways that we mostly thought. It's just that the broncos offense couldn't capitalized and when they did get any kind of momentum and once again they put themselves in a bad position through mistake. Well let's go down and do just for a little bit. You mentioned that he's going to get these final seven games vic. Fangio talked about that in his postgame. Zoom press conference and i think we talked about it all weekend. You talked about on your show. What do you need to see. I mentioned the big al-said mountains. Anything rule out everything. I need to see. I'll be curious. A big allies backtracking on that a little. But i'll ask the question again to you. That was asked to me last week. What do we need to see her in these final seven games because drew lock. Certainly if there wasn't doubt before or not a lot of doubt it's growing the amount of data his groping. Well certainly i maintained that the thing i want to see the most is is consistency. I think a lot of people want to see that. I'd like to see him play a full sixty minute game. I want to see maybe even a few times. I mean to to know one way or the other you know at this point. He's played a few nice quarters in there. He's played a couple of decent half's of football. I mean you maybe even give them a couple of games. Replay three quarters. But i don't think i could find many games where i feel like. He's played the entirety of the game. You know like the detroit lions game last year again detroit. Lions were so bad but that was the closest thing to a complete game that he played in. The numbers were eye-popping by any stretch. So i mean yeah. I think this point you wanna see the upside meeting the consistency and do that for an entirety of the game. You know go wire-to-wire if you can but at this point it's a combination of of locks inconsistency and bad decision making it's the defense really not get you know they're not getting turnovers either. They're giving up over two hundred yards rushing into the last three games against special teams. Let me just start out. The game. Deontay spencer return and put yourself already in the shadow of your own goal. Line is just so many things to kind of fix unless saying they can fix all at one time to be able to beat miami but incrementally you gotta start doing something this week. My goal for them was to be better at third down. I gotta go over the percentage here but you know in the end. They were seven for fifteen. That's not good enough. You're going to have to be better. I do quick math. You're saying they were seven. Fifteen seven for fifteen. Our offense forty seven percent. Yeah then but then the raiders. Were one of the best teams on third down coming in second best six of thirteen so for a while. You're off to a good start. There are one of five. I think but at some point the the levee broke and the defense certainly can share some lame to your point not forcing turnovers and we know. They're undermanned upfront. But that's my thing. I have forty let you run is what do you want to see from the defense knowing that shelby may become back. I don't have the timing will allow them to be backed by the dolphins game just because of when he gets cleared and all that. But in general i mean even certainly brought the first avenue i think at some point it was pointed out that it was twenty three to three plays to start the third quarter at some point years going to run out of gas well. And that's right. I mean so time of possession you can obviously see you know we're talking about twenty three minutes versus thirty six minutes in that that also explains a little bit of the run game. I mean the the defense is is going to have to get off the field and third down. They're going to have to get the ball back to their offense. Play some complimentary football us to a token on my lower highest been. He has some turnovers and there. There've been relying on miami's defense to sometimes dig them out and you know what miami's defense has obliged but but the thing about it is your percent right. There are teams playing with a ton of confidence. Right now versus. What the broncos look like is a team that is mixed at best in their confidence level. They have of quarters here and there. They have momentum moments. And you think okay. Well maybe they can build on this but unfortunately it's just not consistent enough and that that's going to be a problem. There's not you mentioned it. They're not going to be favored against any opponent. The rest of the season justifiably. But was you really. Take a look at this team. The way they're playing right now and and think that they could beat anybody no but they will be teams. And why couldn't it be miami this week. Well guess that'll do it for this monday. Edition of the broncos daily podcast. Maybe we'll have some more answers as to what went wrong after talking to vic fangio today and depending on when you hear this if you hear it in time vic joins logan lewis every monday at ten thirty five than drew locks at eleven bradley chubb slightly after drew. Maybe at eleven thirty five so you can check all those out there. Also on the logan. And louis page on the koa website tomorrow hoping and talked to rick. Lewis usually do on tuesdays. A lot of it depends on his schedule but that is the plan and then we got a busy week. Getting ready for the dolphins course lew behind enemy lines. Find out how to on these. Dolphins are doing so well but right. Now it's about fixing the broncos. The one thing that i will say if you're looking for a silver lining injuries Think anyone's really banged up during the game. If they were it didn't last very long. Melvin gordon shaken up and drew lock certainly banged up a little But nobody really left the game with any issue. So there's that i guess and it's nice to come out of a game like that. Considering how many games you had to deal with guys on the shelf for the entire year so i appreciate listening and hopefully. It's a better day for you here in the mile high city. Or wherever. you're listening across broncos country and we'll catch you next time on the broncos daily podcast.

October 22 Hour 2 CSU Head Mens Basketball Coach Niko Medved | TNS

"After the hour welcome back to the show the whole show power. By PDC energy we're live from the auto collision special studios don't forget. We have Thursday night football tonight here on Kfi this should be a great game. Between the giants and the Eagle, they're both pretty bad. But it is like for the division right now I think. So it'll be interesting. Joining me on our I advantage hotline coach Niko Medved Colorado Statements Men's head basketball coach coach, my producer, and I were talking your Vikings Fan. So I'm feeling I'm feeling a little a little sad for you at this point in the NFL season. Are you really. have to bring that up like. This I've been a lifelong bike. Has Been Great ahead. It's just painful I holy cow I. Do you know what do you do? It's part of being a fan. We're like, well, we're not anymore I mean everyone superbowl. Say Chicago. CUBS THE NFL but they've won one now I don't know. I. Feel. I thought it was strange with Kirk cousins coming out. He's like, Hey, I'm going to get better I'm GONNA get so mad I get benched either way I. Guess He's getting paid either way coach so. Yeah, it is. Eh they got a long way to get out of the Rut there in right now. Question Well Hey at least you get to keep yourself busy and you don't. You don't have to think about it too often getting this team ready to go and. Obviously we're getting a lot of fans wondering, what win will we get the rest of that schedule? We've got the conference schedule coach ready to break some news today. Do we have the rest of that? You want to come over and now. It is it's been a really. I mean I do use the word unprecedent I think that kind of explains obviously everything that's going on this year but we're still working on it Brady You know hopefully, we're we're making some strides here but again, like I said before you know you have all all those things Kinda just go up in flames they're not conference schedule and everybody kind of jockeying to figure out obviously the best opportunities to put together a quality scheduled and quite frankly just trying to figure out how you can give your guys the best. Opportunity to play as many games as possible I I think I think that's a huge deal to and so I'm confident we're going to play. It's going to be a You know a crazy year that way but hopefully, we're getting close to having some continuity here with with a non conference schedule. I think the one thing I've said for I can report and we're going to you know our plan is to play the front range schools. Obviously, we're GONNA, play. See You we're GONNA play. DENVER, we're GONNA play northern Colorado. So that's a good start. Yeah I know fans are really excited about that. Porsche lease coach. But how strange is this I mean you're getting practice you're getting ready for the season, but you don't have that again you've got some ideas as you're working on but usually. That date and you have that team and that's what you're talking about getting set for that game. How strange is that? It's strange but you know the the good news is. Due Date and art mindset has been Hey November twenty fifth we're GONNA play We don't know who or where yet but our job is to be ready then and you know at this time of year you know you have a schedule but you're still really focused on yourselves you know and really trying to get better and and improve. To the honest this. This time of year is my favorite time of the year where you really focused on practice but it's felt like the most normal thing we've done in such a long time is to be in that rhythm of practicing with your eyes and doing that so. Though it's been strange in a lot of ways. It's really felt like the most normal time Expanded a long time so that part's been good. And obviously, you don't have to worry about the games just yet as far as the scheduling but but you saw what happened with with the football side of things and that was so strange coach Adagio on Monday saying, Hey, every day is different. We have no idea what the next day old Tuesday boom no more game. When you hear that is that another thing where you're thinking man, we could be. A couple couple of days away from a game. Next thing you know it could be pulled the rug pulled out from underneath us. That's another hurdle you'll have to get through at some point maybe. A hundred percent I mean you almost have to have to plan for those things to happen and have yourself mentally prepared to. Continue to adjust yeah, I mean you look at what's going on out there it almost becomes inevitable that that will happen. You know whether it's because of you know something with your own team or like CFC's case you don't opponent and that's difficult. You know I I really really heard for those guys you really work your tail off your. So excited to finally get an opportunity to play, and then you know have the plug pulled like that is really tough but all you can do is move on and you know prepare but you know I'm sure we'll have to deal with the same thing this year and So just about every team in college basketball. I mean, you see it in every level too. I mean you're seeing the NFL they're talking about pushing the Super Bowl back a few weeks so that they can make up some games. So you almost have to count on it. Right coach. You almost have to say there's a good chance we might play a might not play a handful of those games on the schedule. Absolutely, I think you almost have to count on that and I think that. The most important thing this year it's GonNa be a strange year You know teams that are gonNA play different amounts of games and you know we can get all focused on that. But in my opinion, the most important thing is that we keep moving forward and we just try to create as many opportunities for these young men to play as possible. That's what they're here to do. That's healthy for all. Of Us, if we can do that in a safe manner and and just worry about what we can control, it's going to be a strange year like that and and but just to keep moving forward and and even if it's not equitable and different teams are playing different amounts of games and so on and so forth. That's just we just have to accept that that's going to be part of it But the most important thing is to try to create the best experience. We can for these guys and they WANNA play and they WANNA do it and coaches want to do it and we believe we can do that in a safe manner with the protocols we have in place and let's just no matter what happens we gotta keep moving forward. We're talking to Colorado State men's basketball head coach. Niko. Medved and coach. Obviously hearing that another year of eligibility is going to be granted. Everybody's talking about Colorado state especially because of the youth and the fact that this this group obviously, no Nico Carpaccio. But this group last year I mean you guys put together a heck of a regular season so fans here that news and they're like, wow, this team we're going to have another year with a lot of these guys so I mean. There's so many challenges and I get it. There's even challenges with that but initially that that's gotta be great news for you. Yeah it's it's really interesting. You know we haven't really spent much time talking about or thinking about it but yet you know you take a step back and we have no seniors on our roster right now and three juniors and and so yeah, it really kind of obviously in the president it's one thing but you look down the road and you're like man, this is kind of creates A. you know kind of a pretty cool set of circumstances and you know one thing that that I think is difficult though I do really feel for these high school kids that are in good to be in this graduating class, the next graduating class, and they've already really been up against it right with not having the opportunity to to to play and to get seen into visit campuses and you these guys getting. Another year of eligibility it's the right thing to do, but it's also really gonNA. Affect in my opinion opportunities for some of these young guys you know they wanna come and play at this level, and so there's just a lot of things to sort out with that. You know in the future, but but it's the right thing to do is to is to give these guys another the year of eligibility and. Really kind of takes the pressure off you know that way and for these guys just to move forward like I said this year just do the best. They can to play as many games as possible and have as much success as they can. Yeah I think that's a great point to there. There's a good and there's a bad side to it or a rough sides for those high school kids for sure. What are you look at as far as expectations now, last year I remember talking to you before the season started and. You know you excited about this group but so young, you said it you're I'm not gonNA know really until we get out and actually play a game with this groups made of. But. Now obviously, the the word is out on Colorado state and you guys had a great season. Defillo any sense of pressure or is this this year being way? It is with covert is this just about getting out there like you said given given your student athletes a great experience. How do you view this season? I mean you know it's it's I say it's just like every other season. It's obviously not I mean that that one but I think you know you have to approach it daily with your preparation and and and with the process of what you do is to just continue to try to get better and growing every time you step out on the Florida to be prepared and to try to go in the ball game and but we again, we know it's going to be different but I don't I never worry about pressure. I've said it before I mean, if you WanNa, be a great program and you want to be known that way there there are expectations to win to be good and obviously none are bigger than the ones that she you know have amongst yourselves. So you want to be in that boat you want your fans and your alumni and the people to to look at and respect your program and expect to be successful, and so I think that's the way you have to look at it and you know from our perspective, I mean we. We really believe in what we're doing. We really like our guys you know were it's Kinda unique in that. We're really really young but we've got a lot of guys coming back and played a lot of minutes and so I think that really gives us an opportunity to grow and get better and I think the upside is really good. You know it's going to be different this year but that's what we want and I really liked. This group I I think that we're going to continue to get better and I think big things are ahead. Yeah and I one hundred percent agree with you and other guy you know that stormed onto the scene for a lot of fans is that was as Stevens I mean, this guy is so much fun to watch and I man you gotta be pumped up to to see this next year what he's going to be able to do. Yeah, he's a he's a special young man. You know he just has. He has it all and he's just a just a great kid and is about the right things. Ultimate competitor has great instincts great talent and you know he plays the the point guard position, which is the most difficult position and like I always tell him. It's always his fault right? When something doesn't go doesn't go right. But he wants that you know I joke, he wants to smoke. You know he wants to be that guy and any is that guy and so he makes me a better coach I. Know that makes me look like a lot of things work better when you have a guy like him on your team and and again because he's such a great person and when your best players are great people. That's when it's really fun. Spin a great guys I mean you you gotta get used to this coaches or use this your place guys all the time you move on but Nico Carpaccio I know you guys you guys had a great relationship and I know the trash talks there with the giants and Vikings and all that how difficult is that to replace a guy that's not only great on the floor but I mean he he kind of took everybody under his wing last year and he also what I admired about him. He was kind of okay. Not always being the guy, all these young players just flourished around him. How difficult is it to a place? A Guy like that? Always is you know you and I don't think you do replace a guy like that. You know you you learn from from what he did and what you helping you and you kind of move on and the and the new team you know has to develop kind of their own identity that way. So I don't think that you that you replace it part of college athletics and guys move on and and so i. don't I. Don't know that that's the case and I'd go back to that. Vikings giants, they both of us better set up the biggest pillow fight in the history of. Football right there. So we got who have nothing. There I'll tell you that. It's going to be who who ends up winning the MO who gets to to. You know. But he he's in it. It's fun. You know he's he he's going to continue on with his career. Yeah but you know you leave a legacy that way and then it's our job to Kinda. You know continue to carry that forward and you know guys have to step up into their own leadership roles and you know new identity develops with different guys and that's all part of it coach. Did You I mean you're always thinking you're going to have a good season right? A coach goes into the season. Thinking are we got? We got the group here. We're going to do this, but you made such a huge leap from from. Twelve to twenty wins I mean did you realistically see that big of an improvement coming? I don't know I I. Thought, we would be better I could sense that thought we had the right group of guys i. knew he had growing pains to go through but you know what you you didn't know early is that the chemistry would be as good as it was with the young guys and the older guys, and you know that part of it really really gelled quickly and I thought our our our willingness to to buy in and to play for each other I thought really helped us I. I know it helped us kind. Of Do what we were able to do last year and so that's been huge I. feel the same way about this team I think the chemistry is really really good That way you know here's the reality I don't doesn't matter what the expectations are. They aren't one thing you know in every season you go into, there's going to be adversity you're going to have adversity. Something's not GonNa go your way whatever that is, and you really don't know what kind of team you have until you see what your responses to that. And when something doesn't go your way because you know that's going to happen and and so that's going to be our test I have a lot of confidence that will work through all those things in a positive way we'll get better from it. But, that's the that's the key. Right. Everybody's going into the season feeling great about their chances and then ultimately you're gonNA have a stretch of adversity whatever that is and it's your ability to work through those things grow through that which really determines You know the the the good teams from the great teams and who really has a chance to compete at the top and it's It should be very good conference this year too. So you know from a Fan's perspective coach I'm very excited to see what you guys can do in this conference is going to be some great basketball and we'll keep our eyes out for that that non conference schedule to. I hopefully it soon and I know if man I'd love to be. Done with that, but there's GonNa be a lot of changing in the schedule this year even if it's makeup games or you know so on and so forth. But hopefully, we'll have something you know solidified re fairly soon we can get that out to our fans and 'cause we're GONNA be tipping it off here before you know it. Yeah absolutely. Coach we wish you the best of luck love catching up with you on this program and we'll try to get you back on soon. Thanks Brady. Appreciate you have me on. All right. That's coach Niko Medved Colorado, state head men's basketball coach, and yeah no non conference schedule just yet. Now again, they probably have that idea for the most part of what they're gonNa do and as coach said yeah, we're going to front range teams they are going to play they're gonNA, play you. They're gonNA, play Du they're going to play you and see which is absolutely huge but just trying to figure out the rest of that coming up. So I pumped I don't know where they'll finish you know the the mountain West Conference. was maybe a little top heavy last year. You know the top two teams and then the rest were oak. Okay. Obviously see issue stormed onto the scene. But this year, I, think it's going to be pretty spread out i. mean like I said, I'm looking at fan site and they have they have you ranked sixth. But. That's not really a bad thing because it's it's going to be so tight with some of those top teams with the vs in Boise State's and San Diego State. Obviously one of the best teams in the country. It's GonNa be fun if we can get to it, that's the that's the question but great guy great coach. Always, if you missed any portion of that, you joined US late it'll be available for you at the whole show dot com or thirteen ten K. dot com for all of our podcasts are available for you. So you don't have to worry if you can't listen every day twelve to two twenty minutes after the hour, we're going to take a short break when we come back. Let's talk about drew lock? Yes. It's fun. He's Darth vader. Okay but. Does, he have what it takes to ultimately go toe to toe with a guy like Patrick Mahomes. Maybe not right now will he become that guy says, one of those tests and it's a meaningful game, a meaningful chiefs game for drew lock a big test for him personally coming up this Sunday. Thursday night football is on tonight till Miss Opening Kickoff while you drive home, keep it here on northern Colorado's voice thirteen ten KFI K. Code now. Weekdays at four northern Colorado's voice. Thirteen ten KFI K.. This is Brian. How call it a beat writer for the Buffs Zone and you're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten cafe. Drew Lock might have grew up in Missouri as a chief's Fan. Coming up on Sunday he is. He is ready to put all that fandom aside he said. I like it man I mean. He's entertaining Colfax, he connects with the youngsters to. But basically saying, yeah, I have no problem going into turn it into Darth vader basically he says it's cool. It's cool to be able to put the darth vader mask on steer away from the. And come to the side. So to say over here in. DENVER. So Denver is the dark side Wolf. Sky. Might you might feel that way? So I kind of like playing like that Guy DARTH. Vader I don't know. Hopefully I can be that guy and get a win this Sunday and start the rivalry a little bit. So is drew drew locks the last person. I'm GONNA say darth though right? He's easily. Come on the main character. Lose Luke skywalker. He's Luke Skywalker for sure. Yeah. Buzz light year. Or maybe he gives me Anikin. So. He's a kid darth vader kit right. Yes spoiler alert spoiler alert. Although a lot of people I think either no, or you don't buy this if you don't know then twenty years guys but people were rough on that kid that was that was an he was an actor in that the actor in that movie The kid really yeah, he's calling. Really Yeah Yeah they like he wasn't very good but. Nobody was good in that movie Liam Neeson Nielsen was in that Nissan Nissan. Nielsen. He's he was in that movie and he was bad at it and he's been a lot of movies so bad directing. Drew Lock he's had a lot of these lately. Colfax a lot of these little sayings last week. He's like, yeah. You're not mad and Melvin Gordon. He's just like your little brother you take them out for ice cream after. Melvin Gordon's like I don't know ten years old now I don't know if he's ten six seven years older than. This'll be interesting man. Can can you find a way to do it? So lock can become get this the second quarterback. To Defeat Bill Belichick and Andy Reid coach teams in back to back weeks prior to age twenty five who comes up with that staff who finds that stat. Ben. Rothlisberger. Did it at twenty two years old and two thousand, four he bill belichick and Andy. Reid. Back to back before turning twenty five. Who is that person I want to meet that person that found that stat? I don't even know where you go to do that. You GotTa go through and look at everybody was beat them back to back and then determine how old they were. But this is a huge game. I'll tell you. Know I don't really expect the Broncos to go in and win this game, but we're we're trying we're trying to find out if the broncos have their quarterback. That's what this season was supposed to be all about and we haven't really got to see. He wasn't that good last week against doing what he was. Okay. But he certainly had some bad moments to obviously the picks were bad. But I don't really like the play calling the play calling. I blame more than the pick. Like when I, when through that deep? I'm just thinking. Wow. Okay. It's going to get intercepted. Okay. It is. I'm not really disappointed and drew lock. They call a deep throw downfield. So I know that he was I mean again it's his first game back. So. He's kind of trying to shake the rust off a little bit. But yeah, I'm ready to get back into this Colefax to this evaluation mode and we started again last week and know based on that game. No, you would say, no. If every game we're asking the question is he your franchise quarterback? We're going to base it off of that game the no but again, he's twenty. What is he twenty? Two years? Old Twenty, three years old. And he's only had a few starts a few games. So you realistically can't. We don't know that answer yet. Why are we going to at the end of the season? We we still might not know hundred percent because could be okay, I don't think. I think you get your expectations way too high came into the season like Colin cowherd who you'll hear right after the show saying that drew like dark horse to be the MVP I don't know where he got that information. But I mean, those were your expectations coming into the season under lock than you're were going to be. Severely let now. My My expectations are I just want to see him in some big moments. You know maybe those moments are broncos are down four. And they got to do a game winning drive maybe getting. You know we're down three get. To kick a field goal to tie it in overtime or to throw a game winning touchdown. To to convert drive like that. Those are some of the moments I wanNA see decision making in really tough tough situations. And again, against the chiefs last year that was out in the snow that was the worst performance we've seen. Withdrew lock and it was a bad one. It was awful But you see you see to take that next step I think the Broncos are excited for that challenge they're gonNA have to get that run game going somehow. I the way too good of a running the both those guys Melvin Gordon, Philp? Linzie? Contracts aside. Do you is aside strep throat aside all that stuff aside. On paper their way too good to be the second worst rushing team in the. But we all know how this is transpired. Lindsey was out Gordon was out. Now we're going to say they've had to back to back one hundred yard rushers. So you can sit there and say, well, they're not really that good. Well, the last two games that they've won. They have ran Gordon ran for over one hundred, and then Lindsay ran for over one hundred. So, put those two guys together. Let's see what you can get done but that's what you're gonNA have to do run the ball so that you can open up something for drew lock. And maybe get a jerry. Judy going in this game, we have yet to really see him take off I events text line three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine, six, Colfax Thursday night. Magic happens and tonight it's. Oh, my goodness. Okay. Philadelphia is one four and one. The giants are one and five. This has a lot of meaning to it though Colefax because the winner of this game. Will I mean Dallas is two and four. And they're at the top of the NFC east who and four phillies one, four, one second place giants are one of five. The Washington football team is one and five. So the winner of tonight's game. Makes it. They get their second win and it's tie with the cowboys at the top. So there is a lot of meaning to this game. And Yeah Philadelphia. Carson Wentz he's had his ups and downs that sheer but. They seem like they're too good of a team to be this bad. The giants I expected to be a little bit better at this stage. But we'll find out too bad too bad record teams going at it tonight should be just great football thirty, four minutes after the Hour Kovacs let's get the latest on the local sports flash. Party a northern Colorado's force. Thirteen Ten KFI K the block party Wednesdays from four to ten PM. The side I the grimace the disgusted head shake body language expert Marianne currents weighs in on the presidential debate, Friday on mornings with Gail, join? US. For bag whether it's Thursday night I, knew we gone I turn all my radio course on prophecy fun. I. Hear an American Picker on Kfi the biggest game. Each week is his specialty I gotta get ready make the TANF the bomb because Thursday not special is going to be special than that. Are you ready Are you. Ready Ready. That's Thursday night. No special last week. Colefax love. Rock and Colefax. Started and this is going to be a good time. Tonight. Isn't it the battle in the NFC East? Oh, it's just it's intense. The bad teams Galore nobody is over five hundred in this division. In fact, the winner of tonight's game will will tie with Dallas at the top of the Kingdom. Giants one in five. Eagles one, four and one. Giants are four and a half point dogs in this one both teams are just. So so depleted with injuries. Carson Wentz and Jason Kelsey for Philadelphia. They're the only start like from the preseason starting depth chart they're the only ones. That are healthy. But they're supposed to get some guys back. And with the right tackle Lane John, I think is a game time decision. And you look at the Sean Jackson expected to return. But there without Mile Sanders tight end Zach Ertz. Giants coming off their first win under coach Joe Judge. Have not won in Philadelphia since two thousand and thirteen. They've lost seven straight in the series. But I mean, how do you pick this game both teams are bad both teams are struggling? Well what we talked a lot about Nico Carpaccio earlier. This is his team, the giants. So in honor of Niko, Carvalho good friend of the station. I'm going to go. First off given a prop bet I was asked to throw prop bet out. This does not count my winter loss. This is for you to make money on. Daniel Jones throws to touchdown. So that's that's it. I know it's nothing nothing sexy. That's just it. I Two touchdowns for Jones. I like the giants too, Windy. Show is child. It. Back the role. Honda. Gordon Garage that he's GonNa fight out. Out of it. Field. Doubt. Desert crazy. Charge. Lou. Same Time to. Recapture some of that Super Bowl magic. That we know and love from the New York giants. Oh, that's great. Greatness is on the line tonight on this Thursday night special giants eagles. Trying to try to stay close in this division. It's such a bad division. But that's not the Colfax has nothing on hang what noobs says that's not what do you mean nothing on hang that one hundred percent Colefax. Making that song like, yeah, I mean I. Over. I would to would take you over Hank your Thursday specials. Those tunes are legendary. Whole from across the world sing to those songs. They're excellent. Giants tonight I listen I. I'm not sure what the stores are going to be in this one. But you know you gotta start saying one of these teams I, mean I I think that that the eagles were too talented to be this bad. But like the broncos. Injuries have absolutely destroyed them. They're getting a few guys back tonight but I I kind of like the giants coming off of that win and you know maybe there's still a little bit better. They've been heard obviously, they lose their stud, they lose Barkley for the year. So that's been tough for them but. You know judge maybe maybe he's going to get something going there. With this team I events text line three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine, six. Joe's was twelve for nineteen for one, hundred, twelve yards and touchdown and an interception against Washington. I mean he didn't throw it a lot. Nineteen Times in this day and age. I mean, that's that's crazy. So we'll see if they open it up a little bit more for him. His wide receivers had five catches for sixty one yards. So. Yeah. I mean listen he's not been lighting it up at all I see the giants maybe open it up this playbook just a little bit but like the giants, not just to cover, I, like them to win tonight against the Philadelphia Eagles. There you go. That's my Thursday. Special Daniel Joe's if he has a monster game but I, think he finds a way to throw a couple touchdowns forty five minutes after the hour. Let's take a quick break. When we come back, we'll get to closing thoughts. You know more on the nuggets drew holiday idea is that something that you'd like to see if it's GonNa cost you.

Another game but just just seemed a little unrealistic this at this point in the week I finished text line three, one, nine, nine, six, Dixon texting in about The jrue holiday idea. He said holidays great defender making all the all defensive team, a couple of times and brings a little more offense table. So he would be an upgrade over Harris easy call. Easy Call Yes if you're picking between the two. But she first off, it's not going to be straight trade. You wouldn't trade the PELICANS would be foolish to just accept Gary Harris in trade out the also you also gotta be careful here because drew is he's got a player option at the end of this upcoming season. So you think you need to be sure he's GonNa. Stay with you. You are not a a team at the end or you know where. The windows smaller for your championship aspirations if you're the nuggets you are looking to continue to build on it because the window is wide open right. Now, you do need another piece but you're not looking at next season like. Championship or bust you. You're kind of looking at over the next five seasons. We need to be able to win a championship hopefully to. The nuggets I mean that's that's really what you're. Hopefully that's what you're thinking at the stage. So. Do. You ship off a guy like Gary Harrison I dunno will Barton and a draft pick. With over the Pelicans do now, the Pelicans will perhaps be interested in trading and because maybe they know something we don't maybe they know. Holiday who's been very loyal to them might be looking for a team that's you know championship ready and so they're therefore he'd play one more season and then go rather than just let him walk for nothing they'd be smart to do the Carmelo Anthony thing and trade him but you still he's a very good player nineteen points per game last year seven assists per game and he's great defensive player a great defensive guard So it's not going to be as easy as just here's Gary Harris we have jrue holiday. You also need to make sure he's going to be there for the long haul. Can Would, he agree agree in principle to to sign a long term deal with you and is that something the nuggets would y? Yes. Because you don't want to get rid of. Harris. For one year to bring, Andrew Holiday- holidays gone will now you're out? Harris and how to? Take more than that. You know they're gonNA WANNA guard, but they're gonNa want something else. They might even want a young player mean PJ. Dosier Bowl Dining we all Mobil's already a fan favorite. But it's GonNa take some youth guys that maybe they think they can. They can grow with as they're they're kind of rebuilding. So that to me is what's going to be interesting with this whole thing is. Are The nuggets whoever ends up getting through holiday? Are you going to be convinced that he's a? He's going to be with you for a few years or it something where you know he's He's going to be done with the after that last year. Andre Dollar did. So I think that portion is very interesting to me that the Pelicans were thirty and forty two. So without him. Yeah. They're definitely going to be kind of in that rebuild mode but what do you give for him? You know when you look at the the nuggets on their roster obviously, they got a lot of guys. You know people keep saying drives me nuts when people say this because it's what you're not looking trade. Package. Gary Harrison package. Package bills that will palmos up to free agent may may some free agent? Those guys are not currently with the nuggets right now So you're going to have to. You have to kind of aggressive yes. That that includes Harris. He's your best bargaining chip right now I would say. will Barton perhaps but. If the PELICANS are looking to scrap it and you know dump some salary Ha Harris is still pretty high up there. So you gotta be careful. All right. That's going to do it for us Thursday night football tonight Thursday night special calls for the G. Men The New York giants to win win tonight not just cover the four and a half points spread. But to win that's going to do for us. You can here Thursday night football right here on thirteen ten KFI. Good night northern Colorado.

#302 Justin Herbert vs Drew Lock, Mike Zimmers Win & The 49ers

"Oh my goodness. Good morning. Good afternoon. Whatever it is for you. I hope you're having a fantastic day. My name is Zach shomler. This is strong opinion Sports episode 302 again. I hope you're doing very very well. I this morning I walked up walked up. I woke up. I watched the Seahawks by the 49ers. I watched the Packers play the Vikings, but I want to start today by talking about two young quarterbacks. So in case you don't know on Sunday, the Denver Broncos beat the LA Chargers 31, 2:30 and a girl goes are now three and for the Chargers are now two and five. This was a really really fun game. You know, I would call it the Battle of two young quarterbacks Drew lock against Jersey in Herbert. Both guys are very talented, but they're also very young. They're still growing mistakes were made now the charges were up 24 to 3. And then the Broncos really powered back and got back into the game and Broncos quarterback Drew lock had three touchdowns. All of them were in the second half and Drew really got better as the game went on got more and more comfortable made some really good throws in the second half. And you know, I guess first of all Drew was far from perfect, you know, he had an interception that we'll talk about later. I'm going to compare an interception Drew lock had to an interception Justin Herbert iPad and talk about the Nuance of how not every interception is made equally but relaxed showed a lot of poison the second half and by the way when I say this was a great game that's really was truly off a great game. It literally came down to the final second first-and-goal. I'm not kidding 1 second left on the clock and Denver scored on the final play. They kicked the extra point Thursday, 1:31, 2:30, Denver needed some help. I guess, you know, there was a fourth and for where they got a pass interference call that helped them keep their Drive alive, but as a whole I walked away from this game feeling really good about Drew lock. And by the way, when I said when I praise Drew locked a lot of people struggle with this, I'm praising Drew lock doesn't take anything away from Justin Herbert people really strong. With just because I'm praising Drew lock. I'm not comparing them if they both did very well. I walked away feeling like man. We have the Chargers and the Broncos and they both have found their franchise quarterback. How good does that feel and I hope we get a lot of battles like this for years and years to come between the Chargers and the Broncos and they just trade winds and they traded touchdowns and blows and it's really really fun. And really that's interesting. Now. I also walked away from this game very very happy for the Broncos offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur if you remember he got fired by the young giant he was the Giants head coach and then the process of getting fired. He actually upgraded at quarterback. He upgraded from Daniel Jones to Drew lock who is you know, drug is more talented and Drew lock has this air of confidence and that's this I would call like a cool air of confidence where he just says chill he's relaxed. He's very poised. And it was interesting the Broncos got the ball, you know down six points First and Ten two minutes and 24 seconds left in the fourth quarter on your own 19-yard line. Meaning they had to drive 81 yards and 2 minutes and they needed a touchdown now Drew lock I would call that a high pressure situation. I don't know about you but Drew lock was totally fine. He was literally life doing this dance and dancing right before the drive started and I think it dancing like that is part of how Drew lock kept his nerves and check and kept himself calm his mind calm down that moment but no matter how he does it. I really love the Drew lock was poised and comfortable and calm at a high pressure situation. I also love the way that Drew lock was aggressively targeting Jerry jeudy the Broncos rookie receiver. Now the only connected four times Jerry jeudy had four catches for 73 yards, but he was targeted 10 times meeting get through the ball of the Jerry jeudy dead. 10 times I like that and in spite of the fact that you know, they only connected four times in this game. I think it's just kind of keep targeting Jerry jeudy keep feeding the Beast. I think he's actually in the conversation may be as the best rookie receiver in 2020. And I also walked away from this game feeling sad that Courtland sudden isn't healthy right now. Remember Courtland Sutton tore his ACL has other top receiver and it's sad because the Broncos are missing out on a year of building Chemistry Between Courtland Sutton and Drew lock. It's disappointing. It's too bad feels like a missed opportunity. Now I Want To Praise one more thing. Denver's offense did not do a lot in the first half. They really you know as 14 to 3 at halftime Denver. Only scored 3 points, but what I did like what was good is that in spite of the fact that they weren't scoring and they weren't there wasn't a lot happening at the very minimum. They also weren't turning the ball over and sometimes you just get beat. There are times where the defense wins and they make a good call or they make a good play found what you can't do as a recorder back in as an offense is compound a loss you get beat but don't compound the loss with a mistake and there's a moment. I loved where Drew lock, you know with mom threw the ball away and I went. Okay, like I knew that going into the game. I knew the score when I started watching the game. I knew the final score. So I knew that the Broncos were going to come back and I love seeing that in the process of You know this, you know really a whole first half of the Broncos kind of struggling an offense at the very minimum through like we still taking care of the ball playing a clean game and not having you know, not compounding that loss is a bad mistake. Now the Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert. Oh my gosh. I I've really enjoyed watching this guy play this year. He played so well and he keeps proving me wrong over and over and over again, and I've got no problem with that. He's playing very very well. He had three touchdowns on Sunday against Denver now, I will say I did think that some of the problems Justin had in college kind of popped up in this game, but there was a third and 12 where he had a bad interception that it just wasn't a great decision. There was nothing open Monday was a deep post and the safety was waiting to undercut the ball. That's a pick you can't make out throw. It's just not there. He was inaccurate a couple of times in quick game scenarios. There was like a slave Example he threw behind a receiver. There was a third and five where he led a receiver right into a Defender and that's an old habit. He has some college where he got his receivers killed in college throwing them contact and he's got to be more aware of where he's throwing and what situation his receiver is in but you know, honestly, I gotta say yeah, Justin Herbert had some mistakes in this game, but I have no worries either Justin as a Young quarterback. He's learning but based on how well he's played so far this year and even in this game off, Justin has earned some patients and some Grace for small mistakes because he's so so talented and I I've completely changed my tune on Justin Herbert. I got no problem saying that I'll put up with a couple of mistakes because he's also making some really really high level throws. Justin had this beautiful long touchdown down the right sideline. Just just a beautiful ball deep vertical put it up in the air had multiple throws downfield and I love watching Justin big big throw Seinfeld. That's a big deal. Not every quarterback can do that like, you know, for example Carter was got a limited arm. Daniel Jones has a limited arm and when you're more talented you're going to get more grace and more opportunities and Justin Herbert is very very very talented now. I do want to say There were some fans of the Chargers that said that you know, there were mad the Chargers allowed to come back and I got a lot of feedback from people saying that the Chargers coaching staff was too conservative on offense in the second half. And you know that conservative play-calling was a problem people literally said that to me. And I I just could not be further from the truth. I don't know what game you were watching. I completely disagree. Look I take very very detailed notes and I watch a game. I watched the tents and tense. What would you call it? Scrutiny? I'm always paying very close attention and the charges are scored 16 points in the second half and that's for scoring drives a touchdown and three field goals and off the Chargers as a team had 210 yards rushing, but the reality is The drives that the Chargers had in the second half that stalled early stalled when the Chargers were throwing the football in the second half. You know, how about this drive? There was a life where else are here first antenna 34-yard line to charge her up 21 at 3 in the third quarter and three straight incomplete passes killed the drive unforgotten ten. They got a messed-up RPO that happened on 2nd and 10. There was an incomplete pass on an out breaking route to Mike Williams and on 3rd and 10 Justin Herbert home and Guiton wide-open deep and miss the throw. So the Chargers had to settle for a field goal after 3 incomplete passes. I don't know that throwing a football vertically is what I would call conservative play-calling, you know, when the very next drive again, there were three great passes that led to a Chargers punt First and Ten was a trick play. They had Keenan Allen throw a pass. I would not call that conservative at all on 2nd and 10th. Justin did not see a linebacker floating outside throwing a swing route. That's a very dangerous pass got lucky. Nothing really bad happened. It just felt like complete that's actually very fortunate and on Thursday. There was a simple throw for 3 yards and the charges had to punt now later on 3rd and 6 again. Justin was not on the same page as a receiver. I just my point here is to say that Saying the Chargers lost this game and allowed the Broncos to come back because they're offensive play-calling was conservative is just totally inaccurate. I could not disagree more. I don't think it's not something you can disagree on it's just wrong and not true. And I think that people are starting to get a little bit too defensive about Justin Herbert. Like especially I don't know if I could stand or something. I'm allowed to say I'd actually don't fully know the meaning of it, but my my understanding of the word Stan is that you love somebody no matter what they do and I think people are becoming stands of Justin Herbert and Diving a little too deep into their act like you can do no wrong and it's okay to think critically thinking critically does not mean you're bad-mouthing somebody. And I think Jessa her fans are going a little bit overboard and I hope people realize he's not perfect and that's totally okay. He's a Young quarterback. He gets Grace. He makes mistakes that's totally fine. And it's kind of like people are afraid to say that, you know, if it's not the coaches fault for this loss then it must be Justin Herbert fault and that could never be it could never be Justin Herbert fault month. And so I would just encourage people stop looking for blame. This game was a loss. It sucks. So 2 and 5 every time the Chargers lose a game. It's actually good for them. By the way. They were never going to make the playoffs this year losing games actually helps them get a higher draft picks. I got no problem with that and I think people got to stop looking for people to blame and starts. Appreciate you got the right quarterback. I think you got the right coach that's allowed him to develop and get better rather than pointing blame at somebody just cuz you want somebody else to blame again. I don't think did anything wrong. The problem was not that the Chargers allowed that they had conservative play-calling a gnome. That's just a silly stupid thing and weird feedback note that I just did not agree with and isn't true at all. Now. I want to end this segment by comparing the two interceptions each quarterback add in the second half one from Drew lock one from Justin Herbert. They have been basically back-to-back like three plays. We're between the interceptions and the lesson here is that not all interceptions are made sure. It's all situational. So Drew lock had a bad interception where it was a double move down the right sideline Drew lock pump faked, but the safety is in position from the very beginning Drew lock kind of stairs this ball down and it was really one of the easier interceptions of Rashawn Jenkins career. It's a bad decision where he's forcing a throw to Jerry jeudy and he's not open. Now in contrast Justin Herbert second-half interception was actually what I would consider a good decision. Here's why it's a throw to the end zone Bryce Callahan picks it off, but you had a choice Bryce Callahan is five foot nine. He's guarding a 6-foot for Mike Williams. And Mike Williams is a jump ball monster. So I look at that and go off. That's a good matchup you throw that ball. It's you gotta a guy who's 5-9 guarding a guy six-foot-four who out gems people his own height. So you give credit to the defense. It's a matchup. You think you would normally win money cuz that's a good matchup. You take 10 out of 10 times and I guess my point here is that again? Not every interception is the same. It's okay to have nuanced. It's all situational and it's example of you can't just look at Stats and say this guy is good because of these numbers. So this guy's bad because of these numbers that's an interception. It looks like maybe a bathrobe isn't her but that's actually a really good job. Vision and a good ball. Well as a coach you go. Yeah, I agree with that decision. That's a matchup. You should win and we'll take that 10 out of 10 times. So by the way, I really think that Mike Williams and Keenan Allen are so perfect suited to play alongside a Justin Herbert with his skill-set. I don't know man. I walked away. I really love this game any time I get to watch a divisional game with two young quarterbacks and reminded me of Baker Mayfield was Joe burrow a couple of weeks ago in the end the Broncos won. But this is a matchup that I feel I just want to see this happen a lot as time goes on and I think for years to come I'm hoping We're going to have really good matchups between Justin Herbert and the Chargers and Drew lock and the Denver Broncos. All right, guys, I'm gonna take a short break when I return we're going to talk about some will do some NFL news and we'll talk about the Vikings beating the Packers and the Saints will the Saints. Oh my gosh. No, the Seattle Seahawks beating the 49ers. The Forty Niners are in bad shape tonight the Packers play the 49ers and I I didn't covid-19 have a big impact on the game. But you got to realize the San Francisco 49ers are just totally devoid of talent. Everybody's injured or hurt and it's really really bad. So I I cautioned you if you're watching the game tonight do not have high expectations for the San Francisco 49ers. If they win this game. It's just another example of how long of a genius or head coach Kyle Shanahan truly is guys. My name is Akshay Kumar. I'm take a short break. I will be right back. All right, we are back. I want to jump in by saying that in my opinion here the three best games in college football this weekend. Number one you have I guess number one Clemson game at Notre Dame. That's Clemson, but that Trevor Lawrence playing Notre Dame. This could be the two teams that play again in the ACC conference Championship. I'm really excited for that game the game and game. I'm excited to watch in college football this weekend number five, Georgia at number eight Florida that's in Jacksonville. What I'm excited about really is I I think George has got limitations at quarterback with Stetson Bennett. Nothing against him is a 5-11 guy, you know, I love short quarterbacks. I was a short not very talented quarterback myself, but what I'm really excited to watch is Florida's quarterback Kyle Trask against this Georgia defense. How does he do? I've been waiting for this game for weeks. It's going to be really really fun in Jacksonville. And then here's a game. I truly believe people are sleeping on this game is dead. Unranked Arizona at USC USC is 1/20 ranked team in the nation. I am telling you I think it's a lot closer than an unranked team playing a top twenty-five team think it's a good matchup. I think it's interesting Arizona State's really really building their program. It's a two best quarterbacks in the Pac-12. If there's a game you want to hear a joke. If it it's at 9 a.m. On East West Coast time 9 a.m. West Coast time is win. This game starts check in on it. I think it's going to be phenomenal and at the worst case scenario flipper TV to it check it out cuz I think it's going to be good or bad. Hey you can leave but I think you should check out this game Arizona State USC. I think it's going to be phenomenal in college football this weekend. Now, let's come into some NFL news. I want to talk about the NFL the 49ers cut receiver Dante Pettis where he's a former second-round pick out of Boise State Boise State. No, no think his brother was Boise State. I think he was actually at Washington someone correct me put in the comments page. Something the Giants have claimed Dante Pettis off of waivers. I thought it was interesting. They released him. There's more to this story than we know I want to do a follow-up to why they need a release Dante Pettis. I'm just giving you news. I don't exactly know why yet. I'm sure somebody's out there somewhere talked about it, but it's just interesting to me. Like, huh? They have a bunch of guys injured and on code page with covet the receiver spot, by the way. They also cut Dante Pettis. The Forty Niners are literally down to Trent Taylor like one guy to catch passes tonight on Thursday Night Football. I have no idea what to do. Now another big story line starting quarterback. Matthew Stafford has been put on the covid-19 reserve list. That's a big deal. He got covid-19 not good. I guess I don't know if you got covered but we least know that either he has covid-19 contact with somebody who does have Is actually closed the 49ers facility is I also read that the Bears have closed Halas Hall. The Bears have shut down their facility because of positive Cove interests. The Texans got a positive Covent test their facility shut down as well. Three players are out for Sunday's game. They're all linebackers. Meaning that the Texans defense is really really hampered and limited on Sunday. They're losing Whitney. Mercilus Dylan Cole and Jacob Martin and Jacob Martin actually did test positive for covid-19. Our facility in really good shape. He's ready to go. He's fit. He's been working out very hard says a lot about him and who he is that he he made sure he was prepared for this moment physically. Remember the Ravens sign Dez Bryant sounded like Dez Bryant was not in physical shape. How do you put on the practice squad? Just interesting now the Vikings there's a story that I missed and I apologize. I meant to talk about this while ago. I think it is. I don't have a lot to say about it. But the Vikings have traded defensive and Yannick ngakoue to the Baltimore Ravens the Vikings get a 2021 third-round pick and a 2022 second-round pick. Have you remember earlier in the year? The Vikings actually traded a second-round pick and a fifth-round pick to get Yannick ngakoue from the Jaguars they have now traded him away for a third-round pick and a fifth-round pick. So it's just interesting. They got instead of a second and a fifth. They got a third and fifth back, but and and hope I did say, you know fifth round pick that they traded for. So it's just interesting the Vikings basically borrowed Yannick ngakoue for a couple of weeks and said we suck. It's not working by will get more draft picks. Just interesting notable. We're talking about really briefly. All right, I wanna shift gears to something that I thought was really impressive this past weekend. On Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings beat the Green Bay Packers 28 22. This was a game in Green Bay outdoors in the cold and in the wind, so the Packers are now five and to the Vikings are now two and five. This was a very very impressive win for Minnesota. Here's why I actually want to start with some stats. I don't normally talk about statistics and numbers. But listen to this Kirk, the Vikings quarterback was eleven 414 passing. He had a hundred and sixty yards with one touchdown and the touchdown by the way is misleading because it was literally a simple screen pass to Dalvin cook. They're running back and cook took that past that little tiny dump off screen 50 yards for a touchdown weaving through Defenders. So Dalvin cook basically did all the work on that play No Doubt could also ran the ball berth times 463 yards and three touchdowns on Sunday. Dalvin cook was the entire Vikings offense. It was a Dalvin cook show the Vikings ran the ball for more yards than they through Thursday. They had more rushing yards than passing yards. They also ran the ball over twice as much as they threw the ball on Sunday Kirk Cousins was not asked to do, you know to do much of anything actually on Sunday. He was super efficient, but the Vikings had no turnovers. They played very efficient clean football and basically what I'm trying to get at is that This was the most Mike Zimmer game of all time. Mike Zimmer's the Vikings head coach. He's a defensive-minded coach. He loves to run the football. He really doesn't trust cornerbacks. This is exactly how Mike Zimmer wants the Vikings to play all year all the time every single game and actually this style if somehow Minnesota can keep it up. I could save Mike Zimmer job, cuz here's the thing. You're stuck with Kirk Cousins. You gotta make it work with Kirk. You can't trade him. He signed a gigantic guaranteed contract. Nobody wants that contract. So if you're in a win in Minnesota, you gotta do with Kirk Cousins. Mike. Zimmer doesn't trust quarterback. He especially does not trust her cuz he's he definitely doesn't buy what I've seen and I guess this game plan is interesting if this is their plan moving forward, I'm curious because if you don't ask you to do much of anything, you actually can't hide his problems now, that's not why you paid him you gave him a gigantic massive contract looks like a bad deal to me, but that's a problem for another day. I just think it's interesting and kind of cool that Mike Zimmer found a way to end Despite All Odds said I'm going to find a way to win this football game and we're just gonna will into existence. It was an impressive win by the Vikings. They were up Twenty Eight to fourteen going into the fourth quarter and the Vikings defense played very very well. This is interesting to me because it was funny in my home. Addiction for this game. I gave praise to the Vikings Offutt Vikings defense, excuse me, the Vikings defense and Vikings fans called me crazy. They said I know nothing about their team. Why would you appraise our defense? Well, I've watched every single Vikings game this year and I would question did you watch the second half because the Vikings defense got stopped after stop after stop. They forced the Packers to punt twice. That's Aaron Rodgers former MVP quarterback who's been rolling recently. They stopped the Packers on fourth down twice. Now. I've got a missed pass interference call probably gave them a stop on 4th and nine and there was one driver of the Packers punted because basically they had two holding penalties in a row leaving them with a fourth and twenty two month. But my point is that the Vikings defense looked very very well-coached early on Jeff glad we got beeped twice by Davante Adams four touchdowns, but in spite of that they bounced back Glad he did mounts back play better in the second half and I guess I'm simply curious whether or not the Vikings can keep that style of play going, you know, barely throw the football Pound The Rock run the ball at home and cook play clean football have no turnovers play solid defense. I don't think there is any way that can last forever. I mean at some point they're going to need Kirk Cousins took up and throw the football very well, but if somehow by some miracle Minnesota can keep doing this all year. They might have saved their coach's job, which is very interesting to me. I am fascinated by the game plan. The Vikings had to beat the Packers and the way they beat the Packers on Sunday now really, the only thing I have to say about Green Bay is that I just for me the highlight of this game was wow. Can you believe Minnesota, but there was a cool moment at the end. It didn't really matter, but I think it's worth talking about I guess obviously cuz I'm talking about it. The Packers lined up to spike the ball both literally 17 seconds left. And Aaron Rodgers had a moment of realization. Hey, oh my gosh. We're in a bad formation. And he said get on the line. You heard a lotta Bagels, you know the line he's yelling to his running back put his running back on the light outside the the right tackle kind of like a tight end because Aaron Rodgers realized hey, we're not in a legal formation. If we get a penalty here, it's a 10-second runoff and I just it ended up not mattering Aaron Rodgers on the next play tried to you know, extend a play and throw a Hail Mary got hit as he threw fumbled but it is worth pointing out that I think it's cool. Aaron Rodgers had this intense moment with you. A lot of stuff going on. His mind is called me said we're not on the right formation and I I don't think a lot of quarterbacks have the self-awareness even realize like yeah, we need a guy on the line of scrimmage covering up Thursday the right tackle. I just thought it was an interesting little moment where Aaron Rodgers despite chaos was totally calm and made it very smart intelligent important decision and if I ever met Aaron Rodgers, that's a moment. I'm going to point out and go. Do you remember that at all? Cuz it's just was impressive to me that Aaron totally was well aware of the situation and had a headache smart play now dead on Sunday. The Seattle Seahawks beat the San Francisco 49ers 3727 Seattle is now six and one after the win the 49ers after losing their four and four months and this game was interesting in the first half halftime Seattle's up 13-7, then in the second half and I guess in the third quarter really Seattle. I got back-to-back Downs when the Forty Niners fumbled a kick off and then right after that Jimmy Garoppolo actually got knocked out of the game. So Seattle LED 32-7 at one point. I want to give credit to DK Metcalf. He had a monster day. He had 12 catches. 461 yards two touchdowns. DK Metcalf is unbelievable Russell Wilson had four touchdowns and the 49ers walk away from this game just in bad shape where Jimmy Garoppolo was struggled all year. He's hurt. He's got a high ankle sprain and it's hard to tell I've always looked at Jimmy Garoppolo and Kong. He's got a very average maybe even limited arm, but he is struggling to throw the ball downfield. There was only one drive in this game. It was actually the 49ers touchdown drive that had Jimmy Garoppolo old with it, you know the end up with a running touchdown by Jerick McKinnon, but it was the best driver of the day where Jimmy was throwing a couple of good balls Midway through the second quarter. Other than that, He did not look good throwing the ball. There's moments where I go. Jimmy what's happening? And it's hard to tell whether or not the high ankle. Sprain is what's causing it. A lot of people say that it's the injury but also offer I'm watching Jimmy Garoppolo run around really well and they're he's making some throws really well. So he's hit or miss and I just I don't know if you have a high ankle sprain. Can you run as well as Jimmy Garoppolo did a couple of times I also wonder how much of it is just physical limitations. Jimmy Garoppolo has a very average arm now regardless of any of that right now currently the boss 49ers to the the best quarterback to Forty Niners have is Nick Mullens. He's a guy who's I have called them before the best back up maybe in the entire NFL and he's the best Forty Niners boss right now by a lot. He runs our offense very, well. I always talk about driving the car down the road. The Forty Niners offense is a high-performance sports car. You just need a guy who can drive it down the road to keep it on the road and not Chrome. Now, unfortunately, I love Nick Mullens. He's really a technically very good quarterback makes good decisions. He's on the ball. Well, I think he's actually got a slightly better armed than Jimmy G which I know was off limits, but it's true. Unfortunately though. I don't know that Nick Mullens is being put in a position to succeed other than the fact that he's obviously got a great head coach Kyle Shanahan in covet and injuries. Listen to this. There are just these are just some of the 49ers players that are out you have your missing Trent Williams a left tackle, you're missing George Kittle and Jordan Reed by the way. So both tight ends are George Kittle the best tight end in football. That's a big deal three receivers Brandon Devo Samuel and Kendrick Bourne. They're all out yet cut down on a pedestal receiver. I mean no joke all that's left for them to throw two is Trent Taylor at this point and like kind of use check your fullback. It's a big deal. It's not good and I'm really curious. You know tonight the Packers play the 49ers the Packers are dead. 49ers after get really really creative to move the ball at all against the 49ers given how few weapons they have. I am just I've been saying that's all year. Nobody has done a better coaching job than Kyle Shanahan and finding ways to win despite lots of limitations around you and if Kyle Shanahan can get through this next couple of weeks of games and have a good stretch. He's my coach of a year what Kyle Shanahan is done to this point and I think it might end tonight where Kyle Shannon I think might get blown out and embarrassed by the Green Bay Packers what Kyle Shanahan is done to this point is just incredible doing so much with a little and unfortunately, I think the luck has run out. There's too many injuries. There's too many guys missing and Nick Mullens despite being the best quarterback on the 49ers roster and I hope I'm wrong. I hope Nick Mullens is phenomenal. He beats the crackers and it's great. Unfortunately. I think he's being set up to fail because of how many people they're missing left tackle too tight ends three receivers. It's not good. And we'll see what happens, but I very little confidence and I'm honestly, I'm really very disappointed in the the really the bad luck the San Francisco 49ers have had this year. All right guys, that's all I have. Thank you so very much for tuning in a very short episode in and out. I love you. I appreciate you. I hope you have a great day. I will talk to you tomorrow. We'll talk about the Packers wage earners game will talk about will do ask Zack tomorrow. That'll be really fun to answer a lot of questions. Yeah. Love you. Have a great day, but I'm bum bam we are done.

October 26 Hour 1 Blue Monday | Zac Stevens of DNVR Broncos Calls In

"Good afternoon northern Colorado. With us here on this well. `Blow Monday some rough stay rough game for the broncos yesterday joining me now starting things off on a Monday Zach Stevens of Dean. VR Our broncos insider. Zach my friend. This was a really weird game. I mean, that's that's the best way I can describe it. I liked the defense for the most part, but everything else surrounding the defenses seemed to go wrong. Yeah offense with terrible special teams was terrible and you can't afford any mistakes when you play the Kansas City chiefs, the Super Bowl Champs and the broncos just continued to shoot themselves in the foot and it started with the quarterback drew lock was not good yesterday two weeks ago against the Patriots, he played much better than his stat line yesterday similar stat line is two weeks ago. He did not play a lick better than his stat line and this is, of course, this is. That season right Zach I mean this is supposed to be drew locks testing year I. Suppose if you WanNa call it that and obviously a lot of it he's been hurt. So that's been tough. So far Zach I mean the broncos are sitting at with with a two and four record six games in. Are we any closer to determining that? Are we feeling worse about that drew lock or is there still way too much season for us to even come close to making that determination? There's still way too much of the season left to make that determination. The good thing is that there is still way too much that season left because right now if the season ended and drew lock went down with that scare where we're at thought that he he may have had a big meal injury at first, but it just happened to be his brace getting broken I thought. Oh. No, this is the worst case scenario because now you're not going to know what drew lock is. So I'm thrilled that it was just that that he broke is his me brace that was that was the only reason that that he went back down and so it's Great that the Broncos have ten more games because Brady I'm not any further in my evaluation of drew lock than I was at the start of this season he's wanting to in his three starts this year, and that's what he had going for him last year but she was four and one. So we had the record passed the test in about one and a half games to me so far clearly did not pass the eye test, not pass stats tested not pass anything yesterday, and my biggest concern right now withdrew is the offensive production under him this year even when he's played, well, the offense is not been scoring points the first game against Tennessee fourteen point. Pittsburgh, he only played in the couple. It's not. So I'M NOT GONNA put that one on him, and then against the Patriots only eighteen points and then yesterday only sixteen points. He hasn't eclipse twenty points per game that scares me a lot. And I know there's been a lot of injuries and we've talked about that but it's kind of at this point now. Zach you look at the rest of the NFL. Everybody's dealing with it good quarterbacks find away even when their weapons are depleted I, tell you the next four games or so to me that seems like a really good stretch. We're GONNA find out a lot about your lock because. I know the chargers get a win and they're looking okay. No maybe that's a winnable game Atalanta maybe that's winnable. Vegas they kind of got torched by the bucks and then Miami. So there's four games and there's act where you could revive your playoff hopes and revived kind of the the hope surrounding drew lock. Yeah you absolutely can these next four games or huge in. Of course it's also drew lock against Justin Herbert Lock Against Matthew, Stafford who maybe in play to the Broncos quarterback next year if things don't go right in Atlanta and they don't go right and Denver as well as some interesting storylines there. But also with that I, think you hit it right on the head the. broncos could turn their season around there. Still in that I said weeks ago if the Broncos were two and four, they were still in it right now. Well, they're two and four. They've made their holding onto life night you can't lose many more games and still be in it but another thing about these next couple of games in the broncos four losses, their opponents have a record of twenty. Two and four in their in their two wins, their opponents have a record of to eleven. So that tells me obviously the Broncos can't beat the best teams in the League, but also tells me that the Broncos aren't the worst team in the League and can beat those bad teams. So what happens when they played average? We don't really know yet in these next four weeks the. broncos get to play some average seems chargers maybe a little below average falcons, little blow APPs, and then he get the raiders a little above average, and so now we'll see where the broncos are the Broncos, a foreign twelve team or they seven and nineteen. We'll really know that in these next couple weeks Zach I know you've gotTa bust out soon so I'll go through a couple of. Of Items. Here with you how about the blow up on the sidelines at the end Shelby Harris was kind of like I. Think Fellow I felt like he was going to ask everybody at that point. How are the Broncos? What are they saying about the blow up on the sidelines? No they're saying that they they've talked about it and that they're they're on good terms shelby Harris last night tweeted that he and Vic talked about it there on good terms vic frankly said I love what he said after after the game he said we can't have those penalties and that's not going to be allowed on my watch you. Know what Vic. Fangio is absolutely right. You can't have those penalties now. Did it really matter in the grand scheme of things broncos you know lose by thirty nine or they lose by forty three penalty costs four points no, it doesn't what happens if that happens next week against the chargers and you get a penalty like that and instead of kicking. The the game tying field goal that gives the charges, the opportunity to score a touchdown. So I love where Vic Fangio's at with that just saying that's not going to be accepted not backing down to that and not apologizing and the the the leaders really took a big role after the game saying we need to keep this season on track we. Have a good locker room and I think that that that's their focus. This week is kind of a big picture view of not letting the season get off the rails sack. How about the injury side of things Philip? Lindsey was having a monster game in that first half and then he goes down that's the one on everyone in everybody's mind today. And Philip Lindsey with a concussion yesterday, we'll find out a little more later today but obviously, like you said, he was huge not just because if he was averaging a first down every time, he touched the ball, but then his replacement Melvin Gordon comes in and has two fumbles. It's been a brutal couple weeks for him. A lot of that self inflicted of course, not taking anything away there. But now if you're without Philip, Lindsey to play the chargers now even more is on drew. Lock shoulders and drew lock admitted after the game that he's been pressing this season and clearly that hasn't that hasn't worked out. So drew lock needs to not press, and if he doesn't have his best running back on the field that may lead him to pressing more. So I think that's Philip injured there. Philip. Lindsey injury has huge ramifications not just for the running game, but for drew lock as well, and we did just find out some unfortunate news Brandon kristall breaking up first and. Mike pursell will be out this for the remainder of the season dealing with the lids frank injury, just a brutal injury and for a guy who was having a great year with the Bronx and of course, the Broncos just getting a three year extension as well. So this is something that with Liz. Frank. Those are brutal that could bleed into next year. Would you hate to say oh, man bad news gets a little bit worse today for for Broncos Countries Act my friend appreciates you what are you working on that? We can check out obviously I know you'll have some some more aftermath so to speak of broncos action. Exactly lot lot of aftermath today really covering all the injuries. You can catch me on twitter at Zach Stevens DM VR and then man really looking at this drew lock Justin Herbert Matchup right now it's not trending the way the broncos fans wanted, but this is the John. Elway quarterback full. Obviously he really liked drew lock but he really liked Justin Herbert the broncos we're really never in a position. To get him when he decided to come back to school but it's GonNa. Be Interesting to see how these to play. 'cause you're locked right now just off the last week, it's not trending in the right direction a man. Justin. Herbert looks like the truth no doubt about it my friends appreciate you hooking up with us on short notice and we'll look out for your work later this latest afternoon. I appreciate you haven't Brady Darmon that Zach Stevens dnv, our broncos excellent inside, or he's to try to get more insight. Coming up with VIC FANGIO and company our power to play sports poll. Question of the day is drew lock the franchise quarterback for the Broncos not giving you any room here. It's yes or no do not give me the I'm asking you to go with your gut I. Want To know what your gut tells. You today Oh you to dig deep broncos country I don't want any of this. Well, I got to see more I gotta see I listen if you if you had to predict the next four games because I think that x four games are going to be critical. If drew lock fails and he's x four games, which would also probably mean the broncos failed right and you're gonNA, miss out on the playoffs that's going to seal your fate. then. He's done I mean that's GonNa get. You're you'RE GONNA. You'RE GONNA find out pretty soon. If the broncos come out of this, what are the two and four four games left if they come out of this three and seven? then. They're toast. They're absolutely toast. So what do you feel? Is drew lock the franchise quarterback for the broncos he was going for the homerun yesterday so much. Wasn't look at underneath not getting a few to have much of a feel for the pocket. And again, it I got to the point where when Lindsay was in there in the first half. Why are you throwing it at all? Just. Rather well, Gordon was running. Okay he is not even close. To the runner that Melvin Gordon is and he has to fumble one of them. He just it's the you know throws a statue play boom and then he. Throws it over drew. Lock said. This was a rough game on offense defensively. I mean you you gave yourself a chance every time the broncos would get a stop. The broncos offense would swatter with a turnover or On special teams had to kick return fumbles like crazy led to field goals. But this broncos defense was hanging in there to the point where even in the third thought man, you still have a chance here. and. Then ultimately, you just you just couldn't overcome it but. I think the defense mentally you break down. You finally look at us there's we can't keep is the best offense in the NFL. and. Maybe they are the best team in the NFL. seahawks had a battle last night can stare Zona they lose an overtime but still think, I, think Arizona's of really good team but the chiefs hey, they did it and a lot of a lot of different ways yesterday and sometimes that's what great teams do. I events text line three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, six. What does your gut? Tell you about drew lock. Each side Chris Brady, my breakdown of the broncos yesterday we are the Charlie Brown's and Lucy just pull the ball away. It's Kinda what it felt like. Yeah. I'll give you that. Pillow fight Dan I feel like he's now played eight total games in his NFL career and everyone needs to. Okay But when do you start them? When do you start like? Is he getting better or worse because I'll tell you right now yesterday was worse than last week. And the last two games weren't very good compared to what he did last year, and again, we need to remember those for the most part those were against bad teams. And they didn't have a lot to play for. Think we gotta be real here. What does your gut tell you? Played eight total games in his NFL career. You can't tell you can tell a lot by somewhat after eight games especially. Let's. I don't like the whole while he's really essentially a rookie now. No, he was in NFL practices for a full year last year he was learning from NFL books for a full year last year. Drew Lock was not making the correct read yesterday when he did go deep, he was often way over the top I. Know it was snowing. But YOU'RE NOT GONNA get give a lot of great quarterbacks that excuse. Am I giving up under lock I'm. Not. Because there's four games left four games in this treacherous should say that will define the Bronco season. If, you can come out of this on the other side more than likely that's going to mean drew lock. Has Been Successful. Unless you're unless you're defense comes up with turnovers and pick six and Philip Lindsay's healthy and he's running for one hundred and fifty seven yards That's the thing we got. I. Got Four Games. I got four games if the broncos do not come out of this in a favorable way at the end of it. They're going to be toast for the season and then you're going to know. That you're GONNA know. How much better is he gonNa get if if he can't get right in these next four games which I believe are winnable have them winnable? I'm not hitting the panic button yet. But I didn't think the BRONCOS would lose that battle yesterday I didn't think drew lock would perform that badly. And also, it's also reminded me again. When will you pay Philip Lindsey? I know he gets hurt but The Guy has proven it. He is worth it. Is your best offensive weapon again. And it's not even close when he's on the field. He's running there's nobody better than him on that offense and I know that offensive line is pushing hard to plan playing well. Even. Fangio said Hey I thought the offensive line wasn't actually that bad. But it was you know drew lock just to navigate pocket presence. Pillow fight he I get where you're coming from it's played to eight games. Justin. Herbert's GonNa Outrun. You folks. Derek cars ahead of you. And Patrick Mahomes has lapped you. So I get that we and I get you I'm going four games here. But I don't know that it's as easy just to say always played eight games. Because mahomes play after Holmes Played Eight Games, we knew about him. Justin Herbert. How many games are we in six? I'll bet you you ask charger fan today and they know who their quarterback is. They know who their franchise quarterback is. Derek Carr is an interesting story. You knew who he was from the beginning he was pretty good. Any kind of had a weird time. Now he's back but. He's one of those interesting guys. I. I got four games. I got four games that I need to see something I need to see the Bronco because they've been putting these moments ever since they missed the super bowl or the playoffs for the first time after Super Bowl fifty. You keep having these tests and you keep failing them well. Now you look at the test coal facts and you look at the schedule chargers at home at Atlanta a bad team at Vegas little above average home against the dolphins not great. And a young quarterback. Who I'm also sure they know who their quarterback is. In fact, they pulled a guy that was playing pretty well. So, they can start their new quarterback regime. Let's get to the good the bad and the ugly presented by infamous bank banking made simple. All broncos related today. The good. Is My guy number thirty Philip Lindsey I. Know He got hurt missed the second half we need to keep to that guy. Healthy. But he is a blast to watch and he was busting it yet again. Lindsey got blocked by. Secondary brought by ward second data. Is. Get one from. Very goes. Secondary. There's no doubt when he's running the ball compared to what Gordon's doing I mean it's night and day. Love watching that guy run I hope he's okay the bad. How about this is the broncos losing it was A. Here's the kickoff. After the forty. He'll. Be taken out by battling Gringo. Defines a seamy breaks a tackle. Oud. Air We go. That was another bad spot kick return pick. Everything that could go wrong aside from the defense went wrong. The ugly for me at least for this game drew locks performance. Come. To. Pick. Six game. Rough go. Rough go for drew lock. Dixon texting and Brady, I hate to say it. But in that meaningless week seventeen game a few years ago and Mahomes came to Denver in one with all the backups playing. Cod Harrison leaves all said Mahomes was the real deal after one game you can. You can usually tell pretty quickly locked doesn't seem to have the it factor you need. I mean there's a lot of guys. You could tell I thought Justin Herbert what two weeks ago the chargers are still losing games you know. He had something though we still had some bad. There was also had some wild moments. Drew Lock hasn't had a lot of those. Wow moments at this stage. But saying Lindsay's in the concussion protocol you've got to have him back and that's that's the tough part. You know he again is carrying this offense and he was doing it yesterday they were running so well, even Gordon at times they were running so well. That I didn't want him to throw the ball all. I. Don't even throw it. 'cause you're running it so well. And then they threw it bad things happen. Philip Linzie was averaging colfax eight point eight yards per carry. That is a first down every two carries Colefax. Amazing. Gordon was averaging four yards carry. He had seventy yards on seventeen carries. They've they ran for one, hundred, seventy, seven yards. You read for run for one hundred, thirty yards. You're. GonNa do victory I knew the chiefs offense or defense again, stopping against the against the runs bad but. You should win games when you run the ball that well. Twenty four minutes after the hour. Let's take a quick break. I'll read more tax coming back I want your. Urine. Feedback I want your thoughts after that game our power to play sports poll question is GonNa be based off your gut. Don't give me the eight games thing. What do you see because the chief saw? After a game or to the chargers are already seeing it. The broncos aren't seeing it if it's not obvious. So how do you feel fifty three percent of the whole say no. He's not the franchise quarterback for the Broncos go vote at the whole show dot com your vote matters over. Catch inside the bears den presented by Chris, Musa Agency allstate insurance Tuesday nights, northern Colorado's voice thirteen ten Kfi K..

You don't have to go in there and there's like three types of wine. You know they have a great selection of of a little bit of everything for ya I event text line three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one. Nine nine six terrible news with pursell with Mike pursell being out for the season he was playing very very well. So injuries continue to be a big thing. For this team power play sports poll question is up is drew lock the franchise quarterback. Now I answered the question. Colfax. I answered it 'cause I'm not giving you in between them telling you to go with your gut your gut might be wrong and four weeks I am saying, yes, I'm saying, yes I still feel like he's the franchise quarterback for the broncos. But that could change in four weeks. Because, I do think that game that chiefs game he got stuck something mentally was telling them to go for the run. Is that PAT? Shurmur? I don't know is that eagerness to get out there after being gone for so long that Patriots game in this game? Just. Wanting to get back out there and force the issue. I not sure. He had a lot of wide open guys. I just can't think Colfax. Even average quarterbacks miss that. All the time. I do feel like he was going for the home run. I feel like he was pushing very very much. So and it led to some bad things led to a lot of bad things. The pick six was bad. The deep throws when he had no a fan there at least three times he had no offense underneath wide open fat looked frustrated. So. Those are all big issues I'm going to say, yes, I still feel. Like. He can be the franchise quarterback, but I'm telling you the test is here. I. Have the broncos winning these next four games. I know the schedule was jacked up and everything, but that's the way I have breaking down. And so I'm sticking with it Colefax I've only missed one game so far I don't know where you are. Thank you missed one or two maybe. Two I think too. So you're doing okay. Okay you're doing. Okay. I had them beating the titans and that's the only one I missed so far I had him. Of course, losing to the cheese. Now, the Miami game was supposed to be in between the PATS and the chiefs game I had the I have them beating, Miami, I, have them beating Atlanta I have them beating Vegas and I have them beating the chargers that would that would put you at a four game winning streak? And you'd be six and four. Suddenly you are a playoff team that's the test. Can you win these next four Games K. can kendrew do perform well even if you don't win them and something you know crazy things happen. And end up losing, and maybe you fizzle from the playoff race or maybe you win two of them and you'll and you're still kind of two. Under. Five hundred maybe you're still alive somewhat Drew can still come out of that and maybe test out at a B. or something. So but but for the most part I'm looking for wins and I'm looking for great quarterback play here coming up against teams not that are not the chiefs that are not the steelers that are not the titans that are not the buccaneers. I mean, those are four of your losses. Four of the best teams in the NFL steelers and the titans that was a great game titan almost came back and won that thing. I mean you're looking at the the steelers that are. Still are great team. They're just playing out of their minds. I mean, they gave up kind of. The titans kind came roaring back there on them but and you lose the steelers box. Chiefs. I mean, the titans of all four of those losses Colfax are are. Pretty good teams that should be deep into the playoffs this year. I events text line three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine, six. So I'm going to say I predict drew lock to come out of this next four games and put the broncos in a position to compete for the playoffs before they play the saints. On Eleven. Twenty nine November twenty ninth. And the saints. Their. An interesting team. You know we've seen them bleed a little bit here. We saw lose to the raiders but since then they've won three in a row being the panthers chargers and the Lions. All Pretty Close Games. So. Suddenly, maybe the saints aren't that terrifying I'm not saying the Broncos are going on a seven game winning streak, but these four games even though they were in a row as the original plan was. I have them winning. Failure to do that and maybe failure to win two of them. You yourself in a really tough spot and yeah, that conversation about. About drew? Lock. Really starts to heat. Up. Dixon Brady Lindsey will resign. With the Broncos, if elway now gives them a decent. re-signed with the Broncos, if elway now gives them a decent offer or do you think he's pretty mad and we'll go elsewhere I to be honest with you I I kind of get the feeling. That he feels like he's being looked over. You in Melvin Gordon. It's just in your face all day long. In this guy does not look like he wants to be out there nothing like what Philip Lindsay is. And I liked Melvin Gordon let me be clear about that. I liked following him in college. He does not look like he is even close to the running back perhaps even the man that Philip Lindsay is. East side Chris Thinking Gordon brought in for insurance pay the premium. Expect help when needed they find a way to say, sorry no coverage. Good way to look at it. I don't know what they're GonNa do with Gordon if if this Dui thing will give them out to in the next contract but I don't mind paying Gordon I just don't. Want. Do Mind is that you're you're not showing love to Lindsay. And you didn't have to but you didn't have to pay Chris Harris Junior last year three, million dollars on top of his contract. So you showed that guy, love Philip Lindsay wants to be a bronco or at least wanted to be this guy could be a legend in Denver make him one. New Bright. Now, this team doesn't have the mentality for forty winning streak and this is coming from a forty plus year fan. Yeah. Yesterday's a depleting loss man that loss whereas you out be Rad says you're dreaming. Probably. But, that's that's the pressure that I'm GonNa put on the broncos. That's the pressure that I'm going to put on lock. And don't get the injuries are tough. But offensively other than Philip Lindsey the injuries didn't keep drew lock from going underneath and picking up ten for first downs rather than going for thirty. The injuries didn't do that. The injuries didn't. Somehow. Destroy drew locks pocket awareness yesterday thirty six minutes after the hour.

Brave soul. As you are. But two I was and we'll talk they're saying because I'm not one of those guys that likes to live tweet during the game kind of redundant every. Day Twenty on your timeline twenty, million Gordon just fumbled but you're the only one yesterday I saw on on who gets it who understood it's not about Philip. Linzie. Orinova November. It's about being open bring because if you don't have both been performing, your running is not going to be successful. We've seen that so far with the broncos I mean unfortunately, they haven't both been right much at all at the same time. and. So we haven't seen them in tandem but. All these people are like. Griping on their own Gordon up. We saw why not Linda? He's a H-. I mean, I'm sorry buff fans but there's a reason he wasn't drafted. He's five, eight, buck ninety. He's not built to be durable workhorse running back in the NFL. He's just not soon get multiple the optimum. You've gotTa have. Cal Twelve Times a game and you got hill Gordon here and in Twelve fifteen times a game. That's how you get opt without all the fumbles because obviously that's. Indefensible I mean, they didn't give him credit for that pitch in call that fumble, but that's a fumble. My Book had three three so far killers all killers this year. Now, he's to get her but you don't get better by scientists give all the. Then you're going to have broken Philip Lindsey, which is what we got broken plans. How much do anybody? On that notice that the rest of them are all griping about Gordon play and that's just dumb. Yeah. And I'm a big. Philip. Lindsey. Guy And I'm looking I'm the I'll definitely say, hey, Lindsay is a hard to me. He's a harder runner but you're right. The to have a different style of running and Times that that I mean you're a pitcher bark it sometimes you throw up a different pitch and it throws up the defense up. So I, I never had a problem with bringing Gordon in as much as my problem was show Linzie. The love if it's not now give him some kind of like insurance. That's like K. at the end of this year you're getting paid. Maybe that happened I don't know but that was my biggest thing from the beginning but I agree with you for the most part unless your name's Derrick Henry. Not One. Guy Is going to be able to carry the load because Henry's also built like A. You know you know what I mean he's a monitor. Did you notice the chiefs have this solar? WHO's this young running back unless you who's leaving in yardage? Whatever. Time. On. Bell. Because you can't have just one guy. He's got to have two guys performing and Gordon Outweighs Lupins by twenty, five pounds of muscle. Built to run in between echoes more Lindsey I agree with you live electric when he's healthy as you gotta keep him healthy, you've got to be able to use them when you need him but you can't wear them out and there were I mean unfortunate because Gordon didn't play against. New England and Lindsey didn't play before that. You Really WanNa see them alternate or being tandem or anything like that so far and Gordon on. This not. Always, a talented running because then all pro twice. Pro Bowl. Twice, he got two guys running backs who are pro bowlers you need them both. So I just griping about Gordon's playing. Gripe Bella. Because that's legit gripes on being on the field is just dumb and Olympic get his money. It's Hilarious is. Right, now that's how it works in football. It's all about seniority. and. What does you'll get paid when he gets paid we? Get broken in half before that. Yeah I mean you look at you look at the even with Melvin Gordon, I think that a lot of people are taking the Dui and all that too and they're lumping it together with the performance yesterday and then the fact that Philip. Lindsay. That's just the way runs. Philip Lindsay is a one cut. Go Guy those guys always looked like they care more they and I do think Lindsay Loves Denver I think he loves the. One cut guys always look like they run harder. Guys like Melvin Gordon Yeah they don't look as I. It's usually look like they're trying to dance around and find the whole sometimes but there's a place for that too and I agree I think there's a place for both I think there are terrifying Combo if they're both healthy and they stay on the field Unfortunately, we just haven't got to see that much of it. Yeah, what's down the road but I think I think we we keep losing and keep losing mark there. In I get mark's point because yesterday twitter twitter world was all about. Lindsay run and harder and wanting it more and I think Lindsay wants it harder than most to be honest with you I think he wants a more. So than most NFL players that guy has been doubted his whole life so I think that comes with the territory. Gordon's of very gifted running back a very gifted athlete. And maybe his appreciation isn't there. I still think there's a place for Gordon but I WANNA make sure that Lindsay is treated. Treated the way the that he should be treated because somebody's going to do it. If if he can stay healthy now that's the big thing for Lindsay's he's got to stay healthy. concussions. That's that's a different kind of different type of injury though that's not one of those where you. Just, keeps tweaking the same knee tweaking the same ankle. They're trying to eliminate hits that give concussions right. So certainly a tough spot, their pillow fight day broncos could l. let's read your first Texaco there. I know I haven't seen lock really pop yet but what are we supposed to do start over Pick Matt Ryan or Matt Stafford this season we have a first year starter basically with his second NFL coordinator and four offensive. He's had four offensive coordinators in College Ron Brown's pace of removing QB's we need to be patient provide some consistency for the fifth youngest team in the entire NFL. And I'll look I I agree with that to an extent. If you? Okay. You also say broncos could easily lose the next three games. If you lose the next three games two and seven, you're in tank territory. So, do you start taking and you go for Trevor Lawrence? You just said Matt Ryan. Let me just tell you this. When's the last time? The broncos won a super bowl. We all know that Super Bowl fifty. When's the last time? The broncos were relevant when they went out and got a free agent quarterback could they recapture the same kind of deal with Matt Ryan Mass Stafford? Maybe so but you're going to learn a lot from July I don't think pillow fight Dan I. Don't think we're that far off from each other objects saying that these next four games. are going to give you a really good idea of who draw drew lock is assuming he's healthy. This was supposed to be the entire season. We were going to evaluate lock the entire season. Okay so we have to do that. Unfortunately. If you lose the next four games or you don't come out favorably on the other side, you're playoff hopes probably shot them what to the broncos do. I mean is it obviously it's still going to be A. Practice run for drew lock this season, but this is where I had them. I. Probably had about three three and then the chiefs game was coming up next. So I originally would have had them at three and four before their bye week. So I'll be real honest. This is about where I thought. They'd be I didn't see that chiefs performance taken hold are the broncos chiefs performance take hold quite like that. I. Event Text Line Three, one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine, six. I may be dreaming about these next four Games I. GET IT I get it. But this is where you are. You're saying, what else do you do it? Well, what else do you do? Now you got to go win games you have a shot. You have a shot right now to to become relevant in the NFL and it starts Sunday with the chargers. Nobody thought you were beating the chiefs I mean you were nine and a half point dogs and most most regards so. You take your lumps you take that loss you go learn from it and you come out and you beat an AFC west opponent on Sunday and you bring yourself back up. That's the only option here, and I think because I I know the broncos are young. But I think they expect more from themselves twelve fifty the time we'll get, we'll hear some VIC FANGIO's thoughts coming back ten minutes till top of the hour. Get to the best of the NFL and the second hour and some crucial games coming UP FOR DENVER. A quick glance issue should be playing on Thursday against Fresno State. We'll be right back.

Fresno State on the road first game of the season for the rams because of the Kovic related cancellation again, cancellation no postponement seven games for the rams. Best winning percentage will will compete for the title and there again, they're lump in the conference together. It's just one giant conference six teams on each now just lumped into twelve and we'll go best win percentage you gotta think more teams are going to maybe have a similar win I don't know we'll see how it. Plays Out Hawaii beat Fresno state thirty four to nineteen kind of a close game in that first half. But Hawaii scored seventeen points to Fresno six and in the second, and that's kind of what did him in. But what what are we going to learn about this rams team? I mean we're finally going to get a feel for what Steve Adagio and this offense is all about. The, they're going to be run by committee run, whoever has the hot hand, and then you hope guys like Dante ride trae McBride.

I'll be sitting in studio along with the voice of the bears. Jason alvian so should be a lot of fun as we break down the season coming up for for. Unc hoops But we're we're still very much in that football mode. And the broncos are still very much in that playoff discussion half there somehow. Some beating the chargers thirty one to thirty joining me on in on studio in studio. We're on the phone. Perseverance hotlines zak stevens. Dnv bronco oh goodness. They're happy after broncos win and zach. I know. I know we're all pretty happy. It's more fun to report on on. A w rather than tough loss like like last week against the chiefs. Oh there's no doubt about it. Brady and yeah you can tell. That was victory monday. Crowd right there with How happy they were. And you're absolutely right. I mean at halftime brady. Also were staring at a two and five record. They were staring at being in the cellar of the afc west and they were all staring being sellers at the trade deadline tomorrow. Now they're in the playoff on. It's crazy is that is there a game and a half out with plenty of games to go and now they don't have to sell any players at the trade deadline. This team has momentum going into next week against the team that has a losing record. Yeah i mean that. That's the key right is they. Don't have to make any big moves now. They're very much in that path of okay. We can make the plus. I think this is interesting. zach. I've been looking at the past two years for the broncos and it seems like there's always this point whether they're one in four or three and six they go up against the chargers they win that game to keep them afloat and obviously we know how those seasons ended but the chargers have always been the. You're not done yet The key i suppose now will be. How do you follow it up against a team. Like the falcons exactly. It's huge for drew. Lock as well. How does he follow it up. Because the first half was terrible for for the broncos entire team but specifically drew lock. It was awful the second half specifically the last quarter and a half that fourth quarter. He was amazing. How does drew follow it up and that will be the difference. If this broncos team is different than years past is if they have a quarterback and if drew lock says no i'm closer to the second half drew lock yesterday than i was the first half and so it'll be huge to see him how he responds next week. Because if we see a guy that comes out and looks like he. He looked in the first quarter the first half then yikes but if he comes out and doesn't obviously have to have three touchdowns and no interceptions like he had in the fourth quarter but if he comes in looks more like that and he pat shurmur on the same page. Then yeah you could very realistically be talking about a different broncos team than years past zach. Let's let's spend some time talking about drew here first off. Are we any closer did. Did he get any further and his evaluation because first half was terrible but he has a fourth quarter comeback. He has a couple of crazy drives and then a comeback. Are we closer. Are we still kind of a wash at this point. Yeah what was it yesterday. Just a great Picture of who druids and the people that like him point to the fourth quarter where he went fourteen of eighteen hundred and fifty five yards three touchdowns and of course throwing the game winning touchdown with no time left people. Who like to say yeah. That's the talent. He had that asks the ice that he hasn't it fame that he can do that. The confidence and swagger that he has in any has the tangible intangibles and i completely agree with that and people that don't like him say but look how bad that first half offense was sixty total yards and a half. It looked so bad. The interception that he had at the beginning of the second half was bad as well And he looked lost out there. So i don't think this game really moves the needle for anyone right now other than saying okay. Let's see what he can do next week because again if he comes out and looks bad people are going to say okay now with is many many weeks in a row where he hasn't looked good outside of one half of play but if he comes out and let's good then. It's very realistic That that things can be clicking now and that was drew message last night. Was we've been getting a lot of criticism toward us but look. This is a young offense we have. We played with three different quarterbacks. This year this is. This is now the time that we're starting to click okay drew. We'll go out go out and prove that. This is the time that you're starting to click. When i liked about him again this he has some swagger there. And i'll admit act last week it kind of rub me the wrong way a bit about the whole. You know people that criticize me. Don't they can't do what we do out here. My response is kind of like criticism is what makes the world go round. It's what makes sports go. People like us ac people like me. I mean we're talking about it all the time and it grows the sport so i of had an issue not that big of an issue but then you see them kind of danson before the before they get into the huddle for that final drive in a in a different way. It remind me of elway joking around with his teams back in the day before critical drives. Yeah and isn't that what you need. And i believe it was caja. Was it that drew state stayed cool and calm the whole time. And that's what we eat it and i absolutely. That's what the broncos need it and in fact at halftime drew stood up in front of the offense and said we need to man up. The defense was frustrated with the offense and instead of fighting back in the locker room through stayed cool and calm and said we need to do our job right now. We need to man up. We can still turn this thing around. And that was big that the offense could see from a twenty three year old young quarterback that he was still confident in them despite being down by eleven at halftime and then of course entering the fourth quarter being down twenty one point. Yeah and that's what's crazy. So i mean when you when you hear him when you hear talking to the halftime thinking all right this is the guy this is the swagger that you want. Maybe he's not going to say everything that you like all the time but neither does aaron rodgers. some of these other quarterbacks. Don't always do that so and again. I'm not there. i'm not comparing him just yet. But i like that attitude. But i tend to agree with zach. We don't know enough about this guy we keep seeing great and then we keep scratching our heads But in the second half it seemed like he settled down a bit more than state in the pocket to complete a big throws. Yeah really didn't especially on third down. That was key. That was something that the broncos not just in the first half of the broncos have not been good on third down for the past many weeks even when they were moving the ball against the patriots they had their drive stall on third down and yesterday in the third half drew was hitting those guys And vic today we just talk to him get gave the credit to the game in terms of turning it around was the third and eight. The drew completed today. John hamilton right. Before phillip lindsay fifty five yard touchdown run. Which of course is the play that everyone point but he said no no. No the play before that completion. Today sean That that really kept the game. Going in brought the broncos back and you had a playmakers in this one i and i agree with you sean. Hamilton that was a huge play. Then the long touchdown k. J. hamler with the huge touch. You know noticed something zack. Is this a record. For most touchdown catches landing on their backside. It's gotta be a record has to be in bidding for For team has jake butt on their team. Who is the best thing ever. I mean we need to be yes but overall yes huge moments huge plays. But you're right. A lot of people are talking about that. Phillip lindsay fifty five yard touchdown run bryce callahan's interception which one of those was the play in your mind of those twos. Zack you know. I i in the those are the two that jumped out of course and i would actually go with bryce callahan interception. Because here's the thing if price doesn't get the chargers are at least getting three points and if they get three points well the broncos weren't going to be able to come back that would have been just too much that would have been the needle that that just put it over For for the broncos not to be able to overcome. So i i would point to that one. Of course phillip. Lindsay run was absolutely huge. That's what really got the sideline juiced up And got the defense believing that they could come back but today vic fangio called that bryce callahan interception the best play of his career and vic seem every single play of his career could. These coached him Every single year of his career. So i mean that was huge. In just the fact that we're talking about a small nickel cornerback. Going up against the six four mike williams in the corner of an end zone and bryce callahan. Come down with that ball again. An incompletion there would have been better than allowing a touchdown. But it's still wouldn't have done the job because the chargers this would've kicked a field goal and the broncos wouldn't have been able to overcome all those points you're right and drew lock you know. After the phillip lindsay touchdown locked turns around throws or they get the stop. They need that I think this defense was pumped up then locked turns around throws interception. You're thinking well. There goes that vibe and then they get the interception so this defense even though there's thirty points on the score for the chargers defensively. I still was very impressed with this group. I mean they looked exhausted especially coming out in the second half. But i felt like they outplayed the chargers for the most part there were just stints in this game where they looked exhausted. Yeah it was really interesting. How the defence really played a great game and the per for most of the first half and then in the last quarter and a half they played another great game a defense despite giving up two hundred ten yards on the ground which which bic today pointed to just fundamental errors. So that's a little encouraging that that that is something that can change but out at the end of the first half of the beginning of the second half they gave up three. Seventy five yard touchdown drives. That's terrible but outside of that. They were really good and they came up with the place when they needed to be had. Because there's a chance that the broncos don't even have a shot at the end of the game of the broncos defense doesn't hold the chargers to a field goal there at the end and chargers were really driving but then chargers hurt themselves with the penalty and then denver's defense came up when they need a to hold him to that field goal. Now we look at albert okwuegbunam on and of course this tight end set suddenly looks pretty dangerous. With noah fant. I mean he put together a nice game. he had seven receptions. Forty seven yards. Didn't get the touchdown like albert. Oh did but man suddenly. You're you're starting to see these weapons work as you talked about daesean hamilton jerry. Jeudy was coming up with some big grabs caja handler with the big touchdown You're starting to see this offense and the weapons that they were accruing over the off season. Maybe start to work a little bit here as we approach the second half of the season. Yeah mrs why. There was so much optimism and excitement around this team and the dolphins. Everyone knew they were going to be young. If you had realistic expectations you knew. They were going to be highs and lows really until the second happy. Yesterday we hadn't seen the the highs and the potential consistently hit so yesterday. What was a great example for everyone to see okay. This is what this team can be now do. They continue to build off that they have a full game in the next couple of weeks where they have this or does it take four more weeks until you see another half of this. Well that inconsistency is probably not enough to believe that this offense is going in the right direction but can they can they quick. You know they're still going to have that game the rest of the season on offense but can they put up another thirty point game. This is the first time since peyton manning where the broncos have had multiple thirty plus point games in a season and now of course jurors only had one of those because brett rippin or bret ripping against the jets What was the other one this season. But you're right. These weapons coming coming out and outside drew lock. It's not like one of these guys was so fantastic so these guys haven't even reached their ceiling and show. Their potential noah. Fant was really good. Jerry jeudy was good obviously phillip lindsay was really good but he only had six receptions attempts which is criminal by the way he he he needs to have more. What happens when these guys are actually having huge games altogether. And maybe you'll see that. All click against the against the falcons coming up this weekend on the defensive side of the ball. kareem jackson. Are we expecting any kind of fines or anything there. And i don't wanna take anything away for his misplayed because this guy is terrifying. He has a nastiness to him. That i think the broncos defense sorely needs but there's still a couple of hits there including one on his own guy that you that you just wish man. I wish that head was up just a little bit. So he doesn't go head to head so much. Yeah exactly. And that's why. I wouldn't be surprised if we do see a fine there and man. That's that hit on. The chargers defender was so With such a huge hit and he was playing with its hair on fire. And you're absolutely right. That is something that the broncos defense needs on the field he was. He was going crazy during that last drive. Where the broncos at a big stop and that's something that they need that's something that keeps league talked about. He said all the dogs on this defense or gone kareem is a dog and he's proven it This past year and a half. Yeah no question about it. Well i see josie jewel making some plays. I mean he comes up with the big hit against herbert. They're trying to go for a first down. That was a big hit totally legal head my mind. You're seeing guys fly around a little bit more and you know even corners that are getting picked on you say so. Aj boy picked on. Michael ojemudia i still like the ability for a young player. A rookie player like oj media. Turn around instill battle through it. Because he's going to continue to get picked on. yeah. I loved it potential as well. Now he he'll hear this week about his tackling with the you know not wrapping up. But that's something that he's proven. He's a willing tackler something where where he needs to play better. So i'm i'm very encouraged with ojemudia is well and you know what boy did get picked on i. I was surprised and impressed with justin. Herbert to not be afraid of going. After the broncos best cornerback But boy i was there pretty much every single time. It was just a better throw than the coverage boy. The afc west though he looked at quarterbacks and if drew lock as we've talked about all season if he can pass the test this division is going to be just absolutely stacked. It's going to be hopefully a lot of fun to watch the future. Oh yeah it's going to be much fun if drew can pass that and obviously people pretty set that justin. Herbert's that guy and you know he looks really good yesterday anytime you put up thirty points. You should win even if you throw two interceptions like he did Now is drew lock. That guy is the second half was a really good start to that. Yeah we'll continue evaluating zach one more for get your game ball in this. When this was hard. I mean i. It's it's obvious with phillip lindsay. Then you start looking at the defensive plays and then obviously some of the offensive guys were on who get your game ball. yeah i. it's a really good question. The game ball to the entire team got kinda cheap out there so on defense on. I'll go with the guy that that i told you earlier. Had the play of the game. And that's bryce callahan again without him. You don't win and it. Also encapsulates i it. It takes into account everything. He's done this. He's been a tremendous for the broncos. Made the big play and on often. I'm gonna go day sean hamilton. Because this is a guy that has just been killed and broncos country the past few weeks and understandably so he he's that's that but he was out there more than any receiver yesterday. He was blocking really well. He did have a penalty He certainly made up for it at the end of the game. This is a guy that drew lock and k. Jay hammer went out of their way yesterday after the game and their press conferences to say you guys need to be talking about dejean more. He was so big in this game. Certainly seems like this group is gelling. Even though they had the fallout after the guard during that game against the chiefs last week man listening to them kind of step up for each other and blow each other up as far as compliments. I mean you love to see that. Now they know they can do it. Let's see if they put it all together against atlanta next week. You're exactly right zac. What are you working on for us. that we can check out in the next couple of days. Oh man i. I'm so curious to see how the team responded this weekend.

Yeah no question about it. Always appreciate you. My friend way too laid out for us and We'll catch up with you next week. Absolutely thanks for having me on brady really enjoy it.

This is the whole show powered by energy. No code now. Weekdays at four. Another in colorado's voice. Thirteen ten kfi. Hey this is mark. Johnson voice of the colorado buffaloes and you're listening to the hall show with my buddy brady hall. I'm thirteen ten. Kfi twenty seven minutes after the hour. That was mark. Johnson and in studios clark johnson as related. You're both tall. And you both have last johnson and your first names rhyme. He is the nicest guy. He's a great deal doesn't he has the biggest head of anyone. Cocky no no no to a large. He's got to be like six six. Yeah and he's just got a. Is that a compliment head. I don't know. I think i don't know if that's a compliment. Factual cents looking huge today. He's a massive man though. He has played college basketball. He looks like an athlete. He still looks like an athlete before before we say anymore. Bad things about your twin mark. Johnson clark johnson brings us the preps radio around presented by weld community credit union and only a couple of regular season. Weeks left already and you got two weeks left. Yeah this is crazy. it's it's such a sprint. I mean we just be getting to the middle of will not even the middle of the season yet. We'd be around the corner to be looking at the middle and two weeks we're already looking at. Rpi who's gonna make in this crazy four tier rpi. They've got going. There's really no way to figure out who's going to be in the playoffs. You can kind of guests. But more my. It's kind of a crazy thing. So we played in two weeks a lotta scoreboard watching yes. How about how about christian. I mean one hundred and eighty nine point two zero. Maybe get a test from university this weekend to and they just massacre. How so how many so. I don't know if you have. The rest are schedule in front of you. But they're gonna they're going to probably keep this pace lose. I mean they've got they've got berthod now. The questions are they going to allow point. Maybe not they've outscored their opponents. One hundred eighty nine zero insane to me and university of close to scoring on on saturday night so it was halloween and it was fun. Just their their quarterback to is junior. Ben roethlisberger will schroeder bar. Fourteen of twenty one. Seventy three is a big kid and you can hate him and he doesn't go down. It can still throw three touchdown passes. Eddie lima's five catches that dude. He catches the ball. He's got a chance to go to the house every time. And then the the big news is tanner appleby to more sacks for the senior he is two sacks away from the all time and colorado high school sack record so moving up on them but we'll see razz right now number one coaches poll number. One max perhaps number three in the packer number. Three rb is so They look like they will absolutely have a home. Game in the playoffs about the reds. They keep their playoffs playoff. Hope alive they take care of brush without brush might give them a run for their money and eating wins twenty eight. Nothing ethan. Flora's how about the junior big game for him to rushing touchdowns and led the club with nineteen tackles in the ball game. Scott agreeable throws a couple of touchdown passes the reds role against brush twenty-eight nothing reds kind of in the mix met five six seven eight nine ten area remember. They take the top eight so the reds battling playoff spot team team that we know pretty well that roosevelt rough rider team. They stay number one in the coaches poll. They're doing what they're supposed to do. Getting another big win over battle mountain gates a team that they don't have to rely on the rushing game the The ref riders. Don't elaine wachner. Steam with brick hearts can absolutely throw the football but they rushed for three. Oh three against battle mountain of their number one of the coaches poll number two imacs perhaps so Keenan sterkel again. That's their go to guy. Eight carries hundred fifteen yards and a touchdown brig hartson. In another two two more touchdown passes and brock cya. Two picks and a touchdown catch big effort for roosevelt. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy to washington cool dude. Now you've had you had a couple of lots over the weekend is has scary for one to talk about the next one. The second friday night windsor. Forty three to five. We come back the next night. Forty seven nothing so yeah yeah about a close one may yes or no. We'll get to the windsor windsor. Just run the ball all over the place. I mean it's what we know that team to do they They just they. Flat out can run the ball. Dax polka their junior. But twenty four carries a buck ninety. Five four more touchdowns. He has eight touchdowns in two weeks but look at the defense. They held silver creek to fifty total yards. Sal i mean windsor rushed alone. They didn't pass much but they rushed for three sixty six. You hold the other team to fifty and you get to a forty three to five. Blow out on a friday night in windsor. And it's funny we talked about last week to With windsor teams. Do they. They have their system. They don't care. If you're if you're john elway out there. They're they're going to run the ball they don't really care and since the day they'd get a throwing quarterback do they finally change. I always felt like they thought they had won about seven or eight years ago. Joseph sanger through it. He was great but only through price. Nobody ever knew it was coming. That's right. that's the still the thing about windsor. Quarterbacks is they'll throw four times but twice two touchdowns because he never does. Everybody sucks in to stop the run run boom. You can run the ball. It's the easiest thing to do it. It's the easiest way to win a game. If you can actually do it. How about okay. State softball news. That's kind of cool. You know i love to end it on this and real quickly Three coach of the year. Dale us from the reg. They win the title of more. What a deserved job. They've been knocking on the door for a while. And how about sadie ross. The freshman gets three a player of the year so Chasing after her sister. Pretty good stuff for sadie and then. Five congrats to fossil ridge. What a year for them. Another team that had been knocking on the door and they finally break down that door. Dave philip coach coach of the nikki. Mcgavin the junior is player of the year at the five eight level so congrats to both of those great coaches clubs and players for the rest of the schedule. Of course folks can go to thirteen ten. Kfi dot com. You've got four games left on. I was gonna look rundown rocky. Mountain of fossil ridge have a good one should be should be progression. Lavallee brush at platinum saturday. That could be interesting. Also brush coming off at twenty eight. Nothing lost to eaten. They'll be hunting for bear. Platte valley looks good to me this year. Just don't know how good can they match up with res-q and they match up with sterling. Already went into to kersey and beat the broncos. So that's the question but a couple of good ball games this week now and so around out that weekend and then after that it's roosevelt at northridge platte valley and eaten to finish it up and then the playoff right on. Can't wait for the playoffs to. It's going to be a huge year. And you're getting there clark it's It's gonna be fun. It should be exciting again. Folks keep it here on check out our website. We don't know what the basket ball. Schedules look like just yet. But we sure if there's high school basketball northern colorado we're going to broadcast it we haven't heard anything other than that just yet. But we know that the increase in covert and all. That is certainly cause for concern. So we haven't built those schedules. Just no doubt as soon as we know. We'll we'll get that down and hopefully gives us time to door thirteen days. Thirteen teams are training camp coverage for basketball coming up. But that's all you know. It's all at the hands of mr covance. Mrs kobe or whatever it is right. preps radio around presented by weld community credit union. Yeah we think we'll community credit union for all they do from gen-x degen's ian wright up to baby boomers. Everyone learn about personal finance. That's why weld community credit union is sponsoring zaubeko. An app where you can earn money while you learn about money down load and use the zogar at no cost with a code. Well w e l d. all of that coming to you from our great friends at weld community credit union. I love at clark. It's fun season. Man we'll look so hopefully some good games this weekend. Let's let's pray for that. Yeah we go to thirteen ten k dot com for the full schedule. All right clark thanksgiving thank you thirty five minutes after the hour. We'll take a short break. We'll come back. We'll wrap up. And i know clark aides to hear it but we'll wrap up. Broncos chargers chargers just can't is anthony lynn. I mean he's in trouble. I thought for sure. I'd hear something in the news today. They can't four streams like you have the talent closed. That's coaching dan. Quinn gets fired. He made a super bowl three years ago. So you gotta think the chargers be thinking about. I think so thirty five minutes after the hour. Let's get the latest on the local sports flash apart northern colorado's force thirteen ten kfi k. The block party wednesdays from four to ten pm. Don't forget we got a special every single monday leading up to leading up to that first week. Which again we're we're still waiting on that non conference schedule for the unc bears. I'm not quite sure you. Hopefully we'll be able to break that news for you when we get there of course but we're gonna have this program. The unc bears men's basketball schedule coming up every monday. Three to four o'clock in the ideas. It's every monday leading up to late november. So we're we're really excited about that. And then maybe by then we'll have some information on that non well throughout the next couple of weeks. Hopefully we have that information to so we'll get interviews for you. The voice of the bears. Jason alvin is out about collecting interviews. They're practicing three to five typically throughout the days so we wanted to get this program on. And then we'll collect those interviews and talk to the players and the coaches and also outside of the program. We're going to talk to radio voices and reporters outside in the big sky conference and get their thoughts on the teams. What they're thinking about the bears as well so should be a lot of fun as we put this program together for you once a week every single monday for the bears fans for the bears. Hoops fans thirteen ten. Kfi northern colorado's voice were live here from the audit collision specialist studios kind of putting a bow on this colfax and had to put the poll question up Power to play. Sports poll question whose play was bigger philip. Lindsay's fifty five yard touchdown run or bryce callahan's interception. Let's leave it to the whole against to decide on this. One goes to the whole show dot com sixty. Six percent of the whole organs are saying callahan's interception now i. It's hard to argue with either one. I'm leaning toward phillip lindsay. Fifty five yard touchdown run. I felt like that sparked everybody. It shows that the broncos could actually compete in this game. But you're right. If i mean zak stevens told us if you know of course if callahan doesn't get that interception charged going to get a field goal out of that thing unless they miss it but both are huge. Both now it's fifty fifty fifty fifty just like that so it was a big time for price callahan. Go vote at the whole show dot com. I wanna see where that one ends. We've done three different poll questions. The first one blew it up. You guys said phillip lindsay was your game ball yet. You're going with callahan's play so okay and then it was just in herbert that one the for the most part one who was the quarterback on the field yesterday and you guys are still saying that. It's just an herbert. Even though drew lock had the late game heroics herbert just looks better right now. I think herbert looks better Drew lock had some moments. I mean when he was when he was completing passes and he was doing staying in the pocket. He looked pretty good. You know he had some low passes there that were still cobb receivers and then go down to the ground and catch just a curate. Those were all pretty good deals Justin herbert looks to be the better of the two right now. That's not to say that's how it's gonna end But there's going to be some great showdowns right. I mean hopefully drew lock can get to that point where he's having showdowns with with. Patrick mahomes hopefully for chargers fans. Hopefully justin herber gets there. And you can have some great quarterback play derek carr. He's not he's not their homes and of course he's been a little bit longer so i don't know he he might be about as good as he's going get but you know at his best. He's still pretty good quarterback he's not a hall of fame type guy but at at his best. He's he solid. He win some football games for you. Are they going to be super bowl. Champs under a guy like car not so sure not so sure about that. Forty four minutes after the hour. I events text line. Three one nine nine six three one nine nine six. If you're new to the show texts k f k a three one nine nine six putting the finishing touches on this one Drew lock we. Haven't we have not answered much. We we keep going week after week. We're like well maybe has he. He has an answer. That question of is he the quarterback of the future. Because for most of that game i would imagine broncos country was saying the same thing i mean. I'm just being realistic. Yes colefax all right. Let's say the trend of his first half meltdown just continued throughout the entire game. The broncos lost thirty two three. What would we be saying. Then we'd be saying no. He's absolutely not. The corporate rippin is ripping time next week. Absolutely saying i thank you for the fact that he saved came out with a win even if they ll even if he came back in maybe like thirty to twenty years. If he wouldn't have completed that last touchdown pass and they just lose. Would we be moving on or would we be like you wouldn't be moving on. You'd still go drew lock. But you'd be you'd be holding his feet to the fire. The win a win is so it heals things. If you lose even though you're driving down there and you do and better things you look better the the would be. Where was that all game but because you got the win it's it's a w. it's w. and brands it over that game and you you know you shouldn't ignore what happened. The first half. But the w takes a lot of it away takes a lot of the pain waco facts. Yeah if you lose that game if you keep going down the path you were going in the second half then. Yeah we're we're talking about not only drew lock likely not the guy but do you just test brett rippin and see what you got in the guy for a for a length of the season i mean. That's maybe that doesn't come to it. But you're at least having that discussion today. But he passed in the second half and so here. You are And so. I asked the question. Was it last week. We said it's drew. Lock the franchise quarterback for this team and we still haven't really answered it. And i said we probably won't have the answer until we're out of this four-game stretch. We'll the chargers was test. One you got out of it but it was weird you know if the season were done and the broncos and make the playoffs and that's what we ended the last game on the season was what it was you. You wouldn't know you wouldn't know you'd say all right i guess. Do we got him under contract that we just give it another year and see rather than look for another guy. So it's gonna be very interesting to see how this unfolds falcons games huge the another big one coming up for denver chargers. I think the chargers are a decent team. And they they were battling a lot of injuries in that one This was weird to you'll garrett bowles another guy that were trying to pass a test right now for the broncos that was his worst game of the season he had a bad holding call he had a terrible clipping. Call blocking the back. Didn't it was unnecessary. And that's where garrett bowles is bad. It's like wait deluxe. About to go out of balance. Joey bosa is five yards away from him and shoves him in the back knocks him down. That's penalty and it was the drive killer so those are things that are bad. You gotta have everybody on the same page. It felt like something clicked in the second half. We got to see it. Now with falcons you know. That's the follow up. It's the test. And like i said the chargers. We've been here before two years last year. You beat them. You're one four. You saved your season two and four still not not out of the woods but you. You kept yourself alive for another day. We know how the season ended two years ago. You were three and six and then you beat the chargers you went four and sixty one. You're next to you put yourself on a five hundred record and gave yourself a shot and you know how that ended it. Ultimately ended up leading to vance. Joseph being fired. The broncos beat the chargers yesterday and now they have the falcons in front of them. They can get back to five hundred of suddenly. You're four and four football team. You're very much talking about the playoffs. This was where. I had the broncos recovering and it started yesterday. I did have them beating the charges that have been meeting with the chargers both times this year. I have the meeting the falcons. I have the meeting the dolphins which they won yesterday and then i haven't been the raiders. So dolphins seems a little bit more difficult. Raiders seems a little bit easier again every week in the nfl changes forty eight minutes after the hour on the rocks liquor game beer of the week. Brick from brekenridge brewing.

We'll right back at the whole show powered by energy here mornings with kale weekdays. Six to nine in northern colorado's voice thirteen ten kfi k. It's times like this. I'm really glad sports are rolling. We have football because colfax. The election is tomorrow. We're going to have gayle fallon. And i believe tanner schwinn doing a kind of a special for local politics as well kind of the election on the for the local side but also certainly talking about the national side. Apparently some guy named biden and president trump are running for president for the next four years. Something like that colfax. It's absolutely insane Everybody's like at each other's throats all the time. It's it's nuts to me. That's why you need the broncos talk about. I tweeted this yesterday. So the broncos need this win for more than just a win for win sake you know. It's great for the for the organization for these young guys for the fans But i'm telling you. Sports can be healing. This is why. I've always been a big fan of for the most part keeping it to sports doesn't mean i don't want athletes to go out and be themselves and speak about it and stuff. I've talked about this a lot before but for the most part it's fun marie consent our brains off for three to four hours and enjoy football game and maybe we can unite there in some way. We can talk about it so there you go election just beat me good each other. I don't know if it's gonna get as bad as everybody is saying after the election just to try to be okay with each other for crying out loud. That's that's all i ask. Broncos found a way to do it colfax. They beat the chargers and they are now three and four on the season looking to get back to five hundred. Cannon happen ken. They pull themselves back into this thing. We'll recap the rest of the nfl weekend. That was tomorrow and a top text. Tuesday that'll do it for us. Good night northern colorado avenue.

Episode 105 Feature Management with Andrew Lock

"Came uh-huh hello and welcome mid six figure develop podcast podcast where we talked about new and exciting technologies. Oh Jeez Professional Development Clean Code career advancement and more. I'm John Calloway. I'm Clayton Hunt and I'm John. Ash with us today is Andrew Drew Lock Andrews a fulltime developer working predominantly in full stack asap dot net development in Devon UK. He's a Microsoft MVP C. Sharp Lover Blogger focused on ESPN DOT net and author of ASPCA. Dot Net core in action. Welcome Andrew Hi. Thanks so before we get started would did you just Kinda. Give us a little bit of introduction to who you are. Maybe tell us a little bit about how you got started with computers. When sure yeah so I didn't really really stop programming till I went to university. I did a general engineering degree so it was an atomic civil mechanical a little bit of software and that's what I my taste for it and I said that was that was C. Plus plus than than I was doing that through the last couple of years degree and I went on doing that through autism. PhD and things just on the side. I stopped doing Cassock as p. v. script and things of that that sort of old school time and yes escalated slightly to V. Net windfarms eventually eventually. I realized that you could use sort of solid principles and exciting things like unit testing which I'd never heard before and yeah from that just carried on exploring over time and eventually got a job at a unit serum so What are you doing these days. I'm primarily temerity working Sp Cool Lena working for a company in London importing some old sort of Sp.. What if y'all stuff across state. S. Court running in Dhaka and Cuba Netease exciting things die that she's been actually surprisingly painless for the most part so no surprise you've been you've been getting lucky them. Yeah I think the key is we already using guitar and whether he is if you already firing the right paradigms as cool uses that is relatively painless and you also blog fairly regularly and tweet as well well one of the topics that they kind of caught. My eye was was in the realm of feature Flax Library. I saw on the SP DOT in a community stunned up where they had come a brisk. Jimmy Kimble came on talking about a new library that it's actually being developed by the ashes using feature flags as an abstraction in asked me don't just as a Finn Lehrer over the standard configuration system yeah so I just decided to dig into the courtesy how it works and started blogging about so what kind of caught your eye within the realm of feature flags and and those types of things or actually made me. Maybe we might WANNA start a little bit earlier that what is feature flag what is future flag in in. How are they useful. So in the simplest sense feature flags are pretty much used as if statements you can use them to hide or show bits of your user interface or you can enable different features in your application depending on how you how to work there's lots of in different ways you can use them. A common way is to have work in progress actually be released to production but hidden behind this this feature flag so uses when ever see work but you can still eat enabling on anti us a basis so you can test it or you can just have rolled out in the background so so you're constantly integrating into your source control so the feature management libraries essentially give you a way to manage all these different titles rules that you need to let if statements to be listened to reveal codes ice if you can centralize them all in one one service of some sort doc make it easier to manage okay. What's the it seems like you know littering those feature toggles all over the place might make some code more more messy may be but what what benefits would we actually have by either either learning this to do this well or or where's. Where's the value in implementing something like this? The real value comes from being able to to roll things out quickly even get things into user's hands false but you can just roll out to ten she just a few uses and you can use those as canaries to see if it's working you can use feature flags as sort of. Ab tests tests as well as a very similar idea which you can see you can sort of do a couple of prototypes two different options. You don't show how things work out you essentially use feature flags decide which one of those abled this slight variations on how you used that sort of thing and yet they're the main main in uses. I say so the feature flags that people would be making are they like turning on and off functionality analogy in an application or are they simply allowing someone to deploy whatever the next line of code is they they could be both you could use them to you can use them to switch between two different sorts of functionality. You could use them to enable an entire section. That's otherwise would not be enabled disable entire section which maybe haven't quite finished working at the code out and you've got to do in the exception as soon as you as you run. You probably got one night enabled introduction but you might want some of the associated bits around that to be enabled. Also you can test it gives you gives you options gives you that flexibility. You don't have to have these long running brunches while you finish off an entire huge feature potentially essentially yeah so it also gives you the ability to to to move quickly in the code and have more people sort of working off that central branch and not having huge integration later on right exactly yes so especially if you've got multiple teams you can have have you both we working on the tattooed and if you WanNa keep finishes I you can disable feature while the WTO. The team finishes off once enabled. You can enable the feature one okay well. It sounds like we're talking a little bit about the some of these libraries that the might enable you what I mean. What is the basic way that you could create. I mean you sort of loo to it. I guess a little bit an if statement but you know sort of what's what's the basic way to to sort of start working with feature flags and then what's the recommended way right to to do us so I mean the another unique. It's an if statement in most cases. It's a if some features enabled run this carrot so pretty much. All of the feature management libraries are some sort of abstraction management over that the key the most teach management batteries have is that you don't have to redeploy coat in order to switch between those branches so at some point. It's it's an external configuration setting without without an environment variable whether it's a flagon. Jason filed being read the as yet Cole has at this quite rich extensions configuration system so you can read configuration values from from a whole range of things you could read them from from a secret manager. You can meet environment variables you can read them from Jason. Files smashed down into this essentially dictionary of strings and so you can you can check that configuration menu can enable or disable various speeches in variety of different ways. That's the way I've I have seen it used is essentially. It's an environment variable. I've worked on older applications. Many years ago larger applications that would manage features of multiple other subsequent applications in there is a whole management dashboard that you could turn on and off features cheers in in various other applications and it just seems like that's a lot of overhead where you're writing application just to manage which features of other applications and that seems to me like you know that while a nifty idea. I'm not sure that's the approach I might take these days. It seems like just in a lot of complication in that I very much want to work towards simplicity I yeah I think it depends. There is a place for that. I think if you have got these if you have gotten very big systems big teams you'll managing flags across a whole range system said that Khun definitely make sense. It's just I wouldn't necessarily early. Say build application yourself as does this offers a service products which provide that Mike split and others which is essentially provide that service and so then instead of checking a just a configuration value. You'll cooling service to find out whether it is the same overall option a lot for you yeah. I'm kind of a of the opinion that if you have to write right a management application to manage your configuration than than you're probably doing something different yeah like you said there are companies that are devoted to this space like like a launch darkly for instance yet they volume huge numbers of extra configuration for your account number. General Maximus Maksim if it's not your business core competency. You should really be building it yourself so it makes sense to start. I think so much fun to billions yeah. It's true which is probably why I've always end up building my own systems. It's a small applications as well it. It's something like don't starkly is kind of overkill in that case just having things into figuration files or environment variables is tiffany reasonable. I think it just looking at at some of the new packages available these days at least some of the ones that are currently in preview like the the AZURE APP configuration. I'll just read here as your APP configuration isn't as your service allows users to manage configuration within the cloud users can create APP configuration stores to store our key value settings and consumed stored settings from within applications deployment pipelines release processes micro services and other azure resources. Those are the types of the things I'm excited about because I don't have to worry about rolling my own configuration management anymore. Exactly yeah it as coal configuration system hooks so into that so yeah you can get without any pain. It'll in that they're currently in preview. Have you had much ability or opportunity to work with. These types of things is are we. Are they production ready or is it something that we should be using currently so the the light drive looked specifically in my blog was much soft feature management and that that library is essentially just a thin rougher over configuration system full it kind of just standardizes the they approach us provides to the icy manager abstractions fractions and that kind of thing vides convenience convenience tilted so that you can do things like a naval features for a specific time window will only six users and and situations dot say as I look through the WHO who type played that at the scene. It's a thin enough abstraction that there's not a lot that can go wrong in other ways. I don't see a reason not to use. It doesn't invest initial using you know like I say don't darkly or a bigger system this a couple of libraries which are similar fashion perfectly reasonable to us. I think you should shoot is no reason don't take essentially so with. Let's say you're using launch darkly. Would you consider wrapping launch. darkly in the interface provided by the future managements enjoyments library just to kind of future-proof case you move off of launch darkly or would you just views launch darkly. I don't think so does that sentiment you certainly only could you could but Assad bikes and you can switch between the two but I generally shy away from that invests cases because I find find the it's just as easy to find him a place in a system as it is to soak abstraction and abstractions SORTA SORTA inevitably catalyze and he ended up finding Yukon Kim replace it anyway sorry I declined to just use one or the other and it looks like you've we've got a rather large series of blockbuster. six-part blog post series on adding feature flags. JSP Dot net core application. Is it really six. succe- blog posts worth of content. Would what's all involved. Maybe I'll just gone rights. We'll blow today.

DT Digi G. DOT CO slash six-figure developer and data dog will send you a free t shirt the this is predominantly looking at that much Safija management enjoyment library and it's just taking a different aspect in each in each at blocked Sir You can have simple flags where it's just too offals and then you can have flags where you time winter flag like you say that enables it feature for a specific time window say just Chris Missile for example and Italy's various aspects and you cannot these extra layers because you have to do things like with with the Maxwell Feature Management Library. You get folks. Intel core as well said as extra features also disabling whole controllers and things which will stuff you can write yourself over who was the code is out there and get up and you can just you write about our fate. Just takes away a bear the hassle so do you do have to sort of specify those things ahead of time when you're when you're like you're talking about the different kinds of being able to disable or switch between the time control or or maybe particular users or whatever is that something you have to kind of predetermined women like you're putting into coders the library basically handling most of that for you yeah the library you define in configuration so you can change in configuration files. You can switch between a time window you to just a straight on or off or either early. Particular uses at certain times. Come see this feature. That's all that's one hundred configuration in this library yeah. I don't know that this is basically that gets talked about a lot but what about just picking. How do you determine what feature and what features should be like wrapped around a particular switch. That's that's a tricky one for me on this phone it depends is the classic thing yeah he can't use them for lots of different ways and I think it depends how how you'll company use it. that is certainly if you'll just working on a feature and it's not readily but you want to. You'll you don't WanNa long-running branch. Just start has inherent difficulties. You can use a simple just keep my teacher all fun and you can only enable bullet locally in your development environment which will make your just your lifestyle development life easier for being able to make things more easily thinking. If you're speaking speaking out a new feature genetically you could try a couple of implementation stab perfectly reasonable approach to take and switch between the two on a some random random basis. That'd be a good option. It'll depends okay yeah and then the other question that I have with all these things you see plenty of applications that sort of exposed some of these things to the figuration being just just on the up the operations side but they may be exposed to the user where they say you would like to try new Beta front end or whatever is that baked into these libraries as well or or generally speaking. I think the most of these seem to be very very much aside or not necessarily service I sort of developer operations side internal facing switches as opposed to externally but then Seattle has no reason why you can build united an extra essentially two-set reset for a feature management systems for us to you then you'd have to have a feature management to turn that on and then Ah yeah when when we had Jeffrey player Mo on he was he was mentioning that you know this really separates released from deployment so we we can deploy the application application that may be contained features but they might not necessarily be enabled so we haven't released those features to the world and thinking about architectural ideas on keeping things clean like ash mentioned earlier that you know if if we're having all these these if conditions nations in these these feature flag conditions in the application are we littering the application so is do we need to maybe change our approach with with how we construct applications since that we can really determine that a feature is a slice through the system or that there are common components can we can. We think about that differently. I think that is a difficult one. As you get more features. You are almost inherently to have more of these if flags you can work around around it to an extent with things like the like the action filters are in Microsoft management and for example where it's an attribute decorated on a controller anti-thai controller is enable disabled based on this feature that from clarity of the purchase that can make it a bit easier easier to read and remove the imperatives but they are there to level. developing in feature slices is definitely going to help as you can enable it at a much higher level of the the application say that it's a tricky one. That's going to be some some elements always. GonNa be unfortunately well not nightly. That looks quite nicest. S Q not sure how to finance. Es Queue View Iowa. It's by as Zebra pulse as best system is very similar to myself each management library for they've got some. I should've devops integration as well so you can actually as part of your release proccessing actually devils you can have trickle out to two uses uses has to try and make sure is working okay and then have semantically complete the release by enabling the fearfully that looks. I haven't tried that but it looks so if your is your company is thinking about starting to use feature management. Where do you start with feature flags like what's what's a good kind of entry into it so that you can kind of test the waters. I think the easiest way is the using using configuration have the choice of whether feature is enabled or not decide. What is to be in the first place? What is the thing you want to enable or disable and then just put it behind a a configuration setting the so that you can change a about vacation that happened to do anything else. I that really from that the deliveries essentially Ashley dispelled abstractions around like you just tidy up but at the first stage that should be an external configuration is key point okay and then you just literally just a if statement somewhere in the code based on that configuration exactly that's that's the easiest that's easiest way to start obviously could get a bit message aspect. That's that's that's. The first one that is a that is a thing. I'm like you know if you keep building on that. when do you go and clean up. All those feature toggles like back. How do you know when it's time to remove a toggle that was just there so that you could release code when you want to yet at stotts pot of the driven development when it when it hits is when you get insulted if once you've got that level legal number of configuration settings you trying you're losing track of what's enabled and things that's when you should definitely looking at these other other options. I think things like don't start late that day will track this for you. They have metrics enabled and all of that jobs so they can see when someone is using it. I can see if breath. ABC Clear user got a disabled and so you can go through that and basically which features which of your features are now enabled were in a way you can delete statement from the code the this has been enabled since two thousand seventeen and exactly exactly as long as there's been able to twenty seventeen and not being errors every time details one of the things that we always have all the guests offer up is a little bit of advice. If you think back of when you got started you know what would you have liked someone to share with with you. What what kind of words of wisdom can you give. Someone who's just getting started trying to get a leg up. What might you say to them. I think one of the biggest benefits of me was when I I started blogging. I didn't really know what I was doing. I just start looking at in speed on that cool and I just decided to just basically blog about everything as I I was learning it and the great thing about if you'll just talk about what you're learning doesn't matter if you could get it wrong. People were correct you and most of the time all the time actually I don't go people have been very friendly and they'll list ulan away and I found that to be incredibly useful so even if you will begin try and just stop blogging and ironically at most if the place you're right when you're like a fresh beginning. That's when most people that that's the most popular my publicists I think it was the second post just about Jason binding in as Co 'cause it was slightly different and people will hit us over and over again and it's what you'll hit as a beginner which will be the most important things and it's a good reminder to yourself of what what what you've struggled with and what you need to need to have help in recalling like I've googled particular issues that I've have run into and ended up on my own blog or someone else's blog that I know of hit before so you know these days you don't necessarily have to have the recall of the the information you just have to know how to get to the information exactly yep okay so what what resources might you point people too so. I mean if you're if you're new to feature flags then look at night feet fly post on on my blog. I think I got various late to documentation and to some of the various risk options of services and things I think that'd be a good start all right and then if people want to save all you do you have any social media accounts or twitter or something like that they would chew on on twitter Andrew Lock Net and got my blogger android WLAC dot net You'll find me on link.

Victory Monday! BK Recaps the Dolphins Game with Ryan Edwards

"Lee began today as meditation with the few sipping exercises to remind us. A little treat can go a long way so pick up your mccafe. iced coffees. Close your eyes and deep seven and deep satisfaction out. Take a treat retreat at mcdonald's right now mcafee iced coffee and any size and any flavor for just ninety nine cents until eleven. Am price of participation may vary. We'll be no death by inches. This is the broncos daily podcast with brandon krisztal. I want everything. I want all the meatballs and pasta. Heavy victory monday broncos country. It's always happy when it's victory monday. The broncos taking care of business against the miami dolphins yesterday was just what the doctor ordered. Twenty two thirteen was called a complete team win by so many people starting with vic fangio and then working through the organization all of the players calling a team win. We'll hear from vic fangio here coming up whilst from a happy and relieved drew lock but the broncos dominate on defense six sacks the interception for justin simmons late in the game to seal the win ryan fitzpatrick in and relief at two of who had been knocked out and it was a bunch of people getting in on the act in terms of taxes. John williams with me read. It was bradley job. It was draymond jones. It was demarcus walker. They were all they were all in the mix so it was good to see a complete team effort yesterday. Special teams really. Good they neutralized yukimi grant the stud returner for miami and it kind of relations. You what you thought this team could be. I guess maybe reminds. Isn't the right word but indicate shows you what this team can be when everything comes together. I know that can be a big. If but coming off the effort against the raiders to come back home a team that six and three that had won five in a row to buy low playing great as a rookie and to completely baffle him. Stifle their offense. Just thirteen points are lone touchdown coming early on a really nice catch by devante parker but just a great great effort. And you're on the ground for one hundred eighty nine yards you. Get eighty four for melvin gordon. Plus two scores. Yes the fumbles. Concerning phillip lindsay make plays eighty two yards on sixteen carries. Actually were tied both at fifteen carries for eighty four yards until lindsey was dropped for a two yard loss late in the game and and that ended up being the the difference after the interception so At least in terms of their rush totals between each other that battle but drew lock bad early. Good if not really good late certainly good. Enough completing seventy five percent of his passes. After starting over six. He finishes eighteen thirty on the day. Two hundred seventy yards. Maybe would have been two. Oh nine the the throat to end the sixty yard tim patrick. I'm sure help some people's fantasy football leagues if they played tim patrick. Or if you played drew lock The over under which i saw was anywhere from thirty seven to forty two for passing yards drew. Well under two. Oh nine he ends up going over at two seventy but When when you get a team win That's really all that matters now. You welcome in the saints team that took it to atlanta tastes. Him hill played great in relief of drew. Brees out with the broken ribs. Their defense had eight sacks came jordan the five time pro bowler at three. So they're gonna come to town. It's not going to be easy but at least twenty four hours. They always talk about the twenty four hour rule. You relish this win. Here's vic fangio. Dave logan post game and you can hear the enthusiasm and his voice. Congratulations i thought. All three phases contributed to this thing today all team with. Yeah it was. I thought sam Did a great job. Putting brandon made his kicks. I thought we Neutralize their return game which they've really been hurting people within Their overall kicking game has really contributed to their winning. And i thought we did a good job there. Although i think we did dodge a bullet on a potential blocked punt that they could have gotten out of spillover. Our kicking game was better. Obviously we ran the ball a whole lot better than we have been. And when you do that you know it just changed the whole complexion of the game and you get some three and outs that we were getting on defense and you're running the ball and the whole complexion of the game is different and that was good and obviously we played good on defense. Got some rush. We you know had the hang on there at the end. I kind of felt all week. I kept talking to the players that fitzpatrick was gonna show show up in there and he did so but overall a great team win. I wish we didn't have to struggle at the end there you know. We fumbled going in. But hey we'll take it no doubt about that. You mentioned the running game. Thirty-three carries for one hundred eighty nine ers. That's five point seven per carry. I saw different things in the running game in this game in terms of the scheme that had seen this year. Yeah i think we had a couple of runs in there and that were game specific for their defense and a couple of them. Pop nicely thought. Our backs ran good. I thought i'd line tight ends. Did a good job blocking and you know when you have some success with it you can stay committed to any gives you a better mix of run past. It's like i've been saying all along you know what's wrong with the offense. I said if we just throw it a little bit better that will help the running game if we run a little bit better. That will help the passing game and we had some more of that today. You know you defense play. Great as you mentioned the at six sacks on miami quarterbacks and then even though they had the lay driving things got a little bit tense with that veteran quarterback as he. He understands and knows where to go with the ball. What a great play. Great jump on the ball by justin simmons for the interception. Yeah was he He was looking for that the whole way there. He was on the left side of the field. Eyeball what was going on on the right side keyed in that. A quarterback made a great play and made a great catch. You know there was a collision there and just thankfully hung onto. Yep congratulations victory win. Thank you dave and how about a little bit more from vic who not surprisingly really classy gesture they end up honoring little. Here's what vick settling sat down. He was asked. Did you think about sending a game ball to floyd to or to his family as as we find out. The broncos hall of famer is in hospice As he's dealing with cancer so he was vic fangio there into his postgame press conference. Yeah we talked about him. One on the all time greats and bronco history all number forty four. I remember magic kid growing up. He was wearing my house. An eagles fan growing up but from a fire was a fluid. Little fan too and we did get him one. We're gonna get it sent to him. Then can you talk about defensive effort especially after you have the early interception in the game. Kind of just staying with it. yeah. I thought her defense played. Well good for the most part. Even after we through the early interception you know they had the work real hard on that short field to get it in there and we had a bunch of three and outs. We had a good day on third down. I believe for the most part and we justin came up big there at the end. We had the six sacks lot of them were up kind of late meaning late in the down the where cutting our coverage was good and Just really proud of the entire team next okudah. Did you do any in particular because he was a rookie or just kind of stick with a more aggressive package over. Well you know we were thinking to be a little bit more aggressive than we actually work. We did pressure more but actually it me before the game i we i was planning on doing it even more than we did. Some of the situations then come up. They had they beat us in a few of them. So i had to go back a little bit and we were able to Still get some pressure and still get them stopped. Ronald congrats on the win. As always to four The running game today. What about filming of and a follow up. I mean it was big car to winning that game. Obviously i've always said the court quarterbacks two best friends are running game and a good defense for the most part. We had that going tonight. And i think reflected in drew's play after. He threw the early interception. I think it was pretty solid after that. Then you know it was a great team win. They've been doing a lot of things in the special teams to help them win. We ran with to not give up anything there. I thought sam did a great job on brand made his kicks and overall it was a great team. Went follow up. Did the pet run a lot of new run stuff today where there whether different angles you guys want to turn a couple of neurons in for them. Because of the title france that they play and a good game plan by the coaches. We had some success with those couple of pop nicely. I see we twenty art by philip. A twenty five yard by mao and You know just some big plays in. But we're able to stay with it too and that's you know. Part of the problem on the atlanta game. Anyway was too far behind. It's hard to run it when you're behind the raider game you know we had too. You know we run it but you're going out a bunch that cuts down on your opportunities so amazon success when it helped the early doubt game. Two congrats on the on the victory What was it that allowed Drew to settle down after that interception to pat. Saying you think tim to kind of get his head straight. I think the i think drew comes back from bad planes. I think that's one of good qualities. I'll think it he lets it longer and get has a hangover from it but again getting the running game gone. You know which helps the game and have the defense play well alongside that you know turns it to where it's not a game to where you gotta throw it every play and they can t off in the russian also. It just changes the whole complexion of the game for coach. Congratulations on the win. Had issues closing out at times but today you did in what it was. Different and justin has had a terrific year this kind of just an exclamation point of the season. He's having thousand a great play by him. He had one earlier in the game at the gate. It gesture great player and we love having him came close to some place earlier in the game to besides the one that lost to the day. I think it's justice that he was able to get the game winner inch single. I know you'll have to kind of go back and look at it to have a a real specific idea. This would you see from sean. Williams couple with was really active. Wasn't the only one on the in the front seven. Obviously but we're kind of your first impression. Yeah i mean. I can't comment his tame play but overall front had the work hard. We did get sick but they were hard to get meaning we had. They were a little bit later. In the down coverage was good we had to keep grind. We had a chance at a couple of other ones but to patrick. Elusive is the scramblers and just kudos to our front. For the way they fought time for more trying to get your thoughts as we can't go any integration. You guys had third and ten or more four times today. She converted three of them. What was going on on those third and longs and made it work today. Why we've actually pretty good job. We've had too many of but we've converted our fair share of him relative to the rest of the league and Joe can stick it in there and tight quarters you know we have some good routes the protection good and you know we don't give up on third ten you know. We think we still can get them up to marchers. Circle have coach alluding to some of the stuff you said earlier. How much easier game to play and coach when you have an early lead and to what extent was this the formula. You'd like to see for the rest of the year. Yeah i always would like early league. That's for damn sure but again it just goes back to what i said when you are running it decently and you're playing good defense. The complexion of a game is different. You know you. you're not feeling like offensively mad. If we don't score were troubled got throw it every play defensively you can kinda call the game way you to call it not feeling like you have to call it a certain way because the way things are going and allows you to mix things up and That's you know we definitely would like this. Play that style. Play both sides of the ball and Still would like to improve our finish. Their you know we obviously could add the ball. On the one yard touchdown there with melons run. You know those are things that we can't do. And we've got to eliminate that which i heard you tell dave logan that you thought you'd see. It's patrick and you're telling players this week. So how much did you prepare for. Maybe on this. I at least in your mind and when he went into the game did it sort of unfold the way he thought it might with his execution to to yeah. I kinda thought that way week that if we played good they would put him at and that came out we he to. It only played three games. So it's patrick. Ups that we watched and the film that we watched the night. I watched the myself on the side I just kind of had a feeling. We're gonna see him if we played good and then of course drew lock coming off. Those four interceptions wasn't great but didn't have to be great was good and i think you'll take good at this point. I will hear drew. Lock with dave and then we'll hear drew his press conference as well because you never get enough of the starting quarterback when he plays well right. So here's do locks. Dave logan post congratulations man. Gr great bounceback win for him. Thank you that was a big one. There sure Hats off to our off tonight man. Those guys came into play and let us through this today. Tell me how tough it was. You'll put it up and you throw a pick and they get the ball on the twenty two yard line. Then they score. What was your process mentally going back in that game at that point given sort of how things had gone. The last couple of weeks You know was just. I don't even know you can't really even put into words. It's just listen. You've got to be doing this with a profound word at the end of that statement It's time for you to step it up and you know that doesn't necessarily mean you know you have to make every single play. You don't have to throw five touchdown to this team to win. You don't have to force balls down the field. It's just doing your job and you know letting the pieces fall into play That's that's the that's the thing that you know. I i need to really put in. My brain is know you come from college and you gotta make every play that is it is what it is you know. You're the better player. The best player on that team and That's completely different in the nfl. You gotta get the ball in these guys hands. Trust around game. Czeslaw solvents of line. You know outcomes might be different. Yeah no doubt about that Really effective i guess. Effective would be an understatement. Thirty three runs for you guys today. Eight hundred and eighty nine yards. We were talking during the game. And i made the comment then asked vic about. This is well i. It sure looked like there were a couple of new wrinkles in that run game. runs that. From a schematic standpoint. That i i had not seen. Is that a fair assessment. Yeah that's fair We were dialed in for this week. you know. We knew what we wanted to check into against their zero when they brought everybody. And you know we. We had around that. We liked going into that. We had been quite a bit of stuff that we ran this week. Different formations that a dialed and Coccia coach shurmur says the best though. It's the players not the place you know those. Those aren't integrate. Looks all the time. But those guys are blocking their butts off. And melvin fill royce. We're we're doing their thing tonight. Absolutely congratulations man. Happy for wait. Abouts back and we'll talk later this week. Thank you so. I think withdrew. You hear more relief than overall exuberance and that's okay till he was a little bit looser and i got some smiles awesome smiles in the postgame. Zoom press conference will let you for from do here as well and the first question to drew was about his sore ribs and as well as the team's mentality going into this game Had they approach it and how come away. The this is a game that was pretty much chalked up for we played. It are a lot of people's is there's no way that we were gonna be able to pull this one off. And that's just typical. Nfl football man. You gotta take a week by week. And that's what. I figured out that was really hot. Dolphins team covenant if in scoring points on defense takeovers or turnovers. Taking the ball away from offense. I was extremely determined There's a lot of talk about playing this weaker. Not plans we can. There is nothing that nothing is going to stop me from. Playing games are definitely wasn't an easy. Be good practice. I through and even today a little bit but off landlocked advice house claims night. Nice game lori drew. I one of the renegade iota front row seats impress free with philip involvements work they're awesome awesome fill is almost these talks about in media. Shutdown deserves a whole lot of credit for this from game in this office The blaze on the field and in the locker room model from last year this year. It's completely different. So i've been extremely impressed with how east progress as a leader for this offense just as overall player in general second interception three and out how much of that third ten to hamler sort can calm down and get you in a group. Yeah it was. That was a big one. Knows one of those playcalls where you know. You're pushing the ball downfield sitting there. Take one if you have to now is the mindset going into it time to upgrade cages. A threat over the top. He's got a lot of speed when you mix that with you know really good ability to able to shut it down. Quick stop to guard. That's exactly what it was. Perfect timing for for both of us route. It words please. We gotta have these games. They're they're trusted tomatoes. That was one of the plays that maybe last week the week before. We don't make coming off visit different mile on the sidelines always progressing congratulations on the win. Today's you you had the early interception but last year. You didn't make a mistake. Seem to settle down calm down and then is this who this offense should be thirty thirty five forty or you know that balanced as you think maybe this is the secret sauce for without a doubt i mean about offense is always the best offense There's games where we start slow and we get down offense side. Scores guys were the baltimore. let's this is the game of football aren't it'd be ideal to be super balanced solid time attack And no mix things up on defense. Sometimes i say you down your throat more than than you'd like and Are run game tonight. Exploded too much shula. All the guys all of those guys playing their office plan going into this game plan a little monday tuesday carryover in a row this week. So i'm really proud of the guys for to adult and said that we need to ask you. Because i said that hug that he gave you after the first pick. He said maybe i know him asked drew. He's my guy. And then pasa tim patrick. It doesn't tend to be caught. That's the longest play from scrimmage yard. So doyle about the things you know. Dalton we've been like this since we got here First night in denver was knows with him. We would move in together. Suspend a whole training camp olivier's together. He knows better than anyone team him in riddle and i've been so appreciative of having those guys around helped me through some of these things now. I detest to them. I'm so proud of the way that they've helped me throughout the week on extremely appreciative and Know the last we did time since the jets ideal everyone knows the place ideal iota run out of you hold a little bit and then chuck it and gus appointed. Try to roll out. They brought the zero twenty off the edge. I believe it's tough to really get out. My main concern was you just got gotta thrill it. You gotta get it out Don't let this clock run outright year. At that moment. I knew it was either going to be right out of bounds or was gonna be tim down this time it. Actually you know. Make a play for some Something happens filmed. The object reset said earlier yet learn. This is a week to week business. So why would you mean by that You know pay cliche in line. You know Any given sunday ion says it. But it's very true. It's so true you'll look at the last games. These dolphins have had last games. We've had as an offense and knowing that. Come in here until you got around Definitely went in this game. No one's going to say that and and our locker room with our mindset and that's exactly what we were thinking regardless. How learn what you watching into from the last week and come into this week. Ready to go fired up. Take what you learned from week by week. And eventually this team's gonna have learned a lot and we're going to keep rolling and we're gonna end up in a team that's I wanted to watch out for. Lets you ever melvin gordon to. We don't hear from too much. Certainly not as much as we do from phillip lindsay but a big day the two touchdowns eighty four yards on fifteen carries. Here was number twenty five post game on on his day. You not to close job with scheming of the fries. Looks and being able to check out some great looks for that. Would it came down to a ouseley. Everyone execute on the line did a phenomenal job out. There being a bouncer. That he's really bulldozing guys over making a really great lengths sports and then we had to do a couple of guys miss. We did gracing. The secondly after a big of a relief was just the interception as heavy was happy sale. Man it's crazy 'cause Some work on You know every week some might think about some really caused to go to the game in pretty much score had know away from me. Like data sucks but You know these came through and We got the dog. So have you that droid. It's one thing to win. Melvin but when you do it where you control the line of scrimmage. How good did that feel. Because that's kind of the blueprint of how you and phil could work together right. Is it feel better. When you're able to win. At the line of scrimmage like that it definitely is you know you able to run the ball. Pass the ball Effectively on the game allow a lot more fun You know we can go after some fun with it. S what the game is about in balance are balanced. I think the biggest thing was this week. We weren't behind the chains You know shooting ourselves in convert. Not their douse Able to stay out there in kabul reckless It's kinda hard. We kinda shooting yourself in the foot third and long knock averted we were. We have good jobs teams execute Third-down burden Been keeping in filling on field arms to make to make explosive. Plays melvina drew took some heat this week when impressed you about how he responded today. Just like is a quarterback you know you have to be able to head at mindsets where not can get to you. You have to go out there and just make play when everyone is gets. You gotta understand and your teammates. Which and that's really the only pain that really matters. I'll sleep you know yukon weirdest sita. You probably ran across bangs. And you've probably heard something for good quarterback kinda kinda blocked at out and go out and do this needs to be done be noted like i said. I'll tell them all the time games winning by losing a win or lose his job especially at quarterback so For him to come here and be resilient dude you need to do to help. The team win lead after he took so much heat last week it just shows player he is good to see both gordon phillip lindsay get gone and something that we just haven't seen really to this point much almost two hundred yards rushing. I think I think broncos country will take that every week. let's go to the other side of the ball real quick before we get to ryan edwards from bradley chubb. He did have one of those six sacks. Is the best player in the defensive front without question. I think you make the case. Justice says the best player on the back end but bradley chubb came to play after a couple Obviously player week but after a couple of weeks without a sack was able to get one yesterday and will end was near till two bunch so He began his press conference by Answering the question. What did you guys do to to disrupt two as a game plan. We knew he was going to be on a decals off as knew he was gonna start to run game. Gladiator didn't have him with his big government. Wave moves around so we wanted to get some early rattling up. Barely feel like we. Did you You for the rest of the game. We kept him back there. So i was just to make sure we kept him in pocketing. Wants we did that on. Just his start adding up in the so. It was good for us Early the performance by the defensive front today is that something you hope to springboard and are are we starting to see maybe some more cohesion especially considering all the turnover in injuries up front for show a lot more cohesion. Those guys they play hard because they have to step up in roles were sheltered being now might be now so you just say guys that we had Starting to play starting play together with the defense and it's just fun to seize noodles guys were Plenty enough talented. It was just about opportunity for him now. having to sacks de walk the sack dre having second me and me both emi is crazy we sit back for sure fine. I can't wait to keep it rolling. You told me your last week barley. There's no quietness team. What is pushing these guys in daylight this you know because you got by and clearly but today like this give this team kind of that confidence it needs to finish the second half of the season for sure I feel like this was like ultimate team. Game are supposed to play amazing. Offer his split amazing on defense played. Amazing live we even when the office made a mistake or we made stay right there. We were right there to fix it up for them so it was one of the ultimate tango. Glad we had his game in. It should one of those Those games that pushes us words more wins than win. Okay that'll do. For zoom portion of this podcast. I want you to hear my conversation with ryan edwards from last night from broncos react Couple things real quick on the injury front Shelby harris don't know if he's gonna play this week. He started his workout yesterday. But vic fangio threw it out there that he may not be back in time for the saints game so not sure what's going on but he's supposed to have a workouts if he's on the practice field wednesday that's not a good sign I don't think it's my understanding. He's no longer positive for covid more to getting back into football shaper We will keep an eye on that situation. Graham glasgow vic fangio talked about his calf In his monday press conference as lower legs in the soreness air. He took himself out for the final ten plays. Let him play. I thought that was a better way to go. A mutual decision if you will sell Appreciate glasco being that. Selfless i guess to say. Hey we're better off here without hurting. This further led austin play. These final ten plays and they were up. I think at that point when he came out twenty two ten before we were reminded about chuck water. Chilly it's starting to get cold Snow in the forecast here in the denver metro. Go check water. Chile dot com use. Promo code chuck. Water be k. juggler. Chile's a spice of western life. Twenty five percent. When you use my promo code you also get your local grocers. Maybe after thanksgiving you'll make some turkey chili using similar great jaguar. Chili chili powder. So charlie dot com promo code chug water be k. right edwards from broncos country tonight and he joins us last night on broncos react like you always does so. Here's my chat with. I'm curious ryan when you in ben. We're talking this morning on. Bet fred opening line What betsy like. I'll tell you when. I light and hit pretty early phillip lindsay over right around twenty nine and a half depending on what you got. But that's where. I saw that. I love that and then my favorite stat of the night was drew. Lock depending on where. You're looking anywhere from two thirty seven to forty two. He was hitting two. Oh nine before that final heave. That wasn't necessarily intended to be caught. Tim patrick is he told his postgame. But that puts him over so some people were happy with that completion. And i'm sure some people were disappointed. Will yeah i mean you think about how many fantasy matchups swung on putting over one hundred yards. Obviously you have to one nineteen. So i know the league's i have tim. Patrick and i was pretty thrilled about that. But i i always think about those moments and you see like games were a running back will stop on the one yard line or go to balance the nick chubb last week as an example of that. And you know he's in every single lineup so those are always fascinating to me from a gambling and for a fantasy perspective. But now i mean we we the broncos in this one. I think we were. We were willing to take the points in this case but also you know bedford at a great boost. They had if you wanted to go on the money which obviously paid you get to plus one ninety on the broncos in this game so we ended up. Both of us took that bet this morning and now worked out nice. Yeah so when you look at the game and what a difference a week makes and we took one call from bill will take a bunch more but the aim starts. The first thing you get is a drew lock interception and it's like oh here we go again right and rises having them give them a hug on the sideline man are we gonna see brett rip and not that anyone saying that's happening immediately but what kind of game would have the broncos stayed with it. We saw more creativity from pat shurmur and his run design saw drew make some big throws and i think maybe the biggest of the game was at completion of k j. Hamler what what were some things that stood out to you. Well i mean you bring it up right there. He started owen six clothing interception and put the defense once again in a bad place. And it's just like what we keep saying over and over and over again this is what's killing the team. Is they out. These bad turnovers the leading the league turnovers and then putting their defense in a bad spot and this is the defense again. That's the number one red zone defense. Since last year so again that all sorts their stats to But but they always had an interception there with that was called back unfortunately but then he goes on so he started the whole game. He completed sixty percent of his passes. But if you go after the oem six start including that interception. He completed seventy five percent. And i slam the table. Of course because we got steve atwater shoutout but he completed seventy five percent of his passes after going over six so it was a complete one eighty from what he has been and what he had been all season to go into a really efficient thing and again you do the running game. I mean the running game. One hundred eighty nine rushing yards averaging five point. Seven and melvin. Gordon almost got an extra yard in there and extra touchdown. They would've had one hundred ninety and three touchdowns but of course he fumbled right there but overall mean you just have to be thrilled with the effort. It was a complete team win. And we really haven't seen very many of those and then make fangio said the second. He sat down. Dave he start talking about the special teams but they neutralized you came. Grant really good obviously brandon Makes his four kicks field goals and really good job. I san martin but the defense with six sacks. I say undermanned in some respects. You have to when you don't have your starting line. It's kind of by definition undermanned. Would you think of the defense. And the mixing it up to get to six times in basically knock him out of the game. I mean you have to love it right. We're taught you said a perfect. I mean you're talking about playing with your backup rotational defensive line and they got pressure up in his lap multiple times. The edge was getting their melik. Read obviously was a huge force early on bradley. Chubb may big plays. I mean you have. You had to be thrilled. And vic fangio characterized this really well a lot of those actually because of coverage because the kind of came late you know to his looking around looking around. he's just nothing coming open and then the pressure eventually got to him but that that for me again coming back to a complete team win all three really all three levels of the defense made place today there certainly things you want to clean up a little bit out there but mean th. They held him to that one. Touchdown couple field goal drives and the broncos really because just the way this thing was set up they really should have won by a lot more but it again. That's just the way it ultimately fell. They won the game. It felt like they were in control the whole time. And like i said this is definitely kind of momentum building moment for this team. So let's give question the bill in. La just asked me. Is this the team that we expect to see. Or is it a mirage. And i said that i can't answer that talk to me a week or two not not ready to say that mirage. But also you're gonna get this every week. I was just explaining that. I think it's a talented roster and you see what they can be what they're capable of. So how would you answer that question. A bill were call you up from l. a. Tomorrow night on broncos country nine ask you the same thing i mean i think that we we kinda hoped that if they started to be a little bit more efficient on offense and established the run and we knew this defense was was playing was a capable of playing better football than they had been so. There's just certain things about this team. And i think that's what's so frustrating over the last few weeks is because you just know that they are capable of so much more even with all of the injuries. There's a lot of depth and talent here but it's all very young and you just. There's something that needed to kind of unlock. And i don't mean that as upon necessarily but there's just something that needed to spark them and today's performance who knows i mean you know you thought. After they won against the chargers that would be a little bit of a spark but then they went to the atlanta falcons game. They were really decimated on the defensive side especially in the secondary missing both buoy and callahan. So they got in a big hole in that one. And then against the raiders. They just had a really bad game like just top to bottom a really bad game but that that game you heard guys like dalton riser ends. You heard Guys like even drew lock after the game saying that was a kind of an inspirational moment for them. The defense even said you know we can play better than this they. They knew they knew that performance. That happened in the third quarter. Where their offense only touched the ball four times. They knew that they can show better than that. And so maybe the loss more so than the win this week. The loss last week to the raiders. In the way they really lost in all three phases. Maybe that looks like the spark when we look back at this season ryan edwards broncos country tonight fame of course on sunday zero. Hear them all morning. Long than as part of the broncos. React as well from fred opening line to the koa fantasy football hour and then. Of course you're broncos countdown to kickoff final. One i have for you. You watch out of the corner. I'm sure the falcons and the saints. And we saw the falcons view weeks kind of have an idea who they are when they're great when they're not so great. You saw tatum hill. And the saints. What's the expectation. Because i haven't checked what. Fred has it but i saw someone tweet that it's around the broncos a five point home underdog to taste some hill and the saints had. He'd think this week's gonna shape up especially with thanksgiving in the middle. And now sean payton bringing the saints will the one constant i'd have between what they just saw to. A tongue of my law and tastes hill. Is they're both quarterbacks. To hold the ball really long time and tastes him hill. He is some hit some nine step drops in there and he comes swinging all the way back so we can see the entire field but that can also be a little bit dangerous. And the broncos. Pass rush i mean. I like the broncos pass rush in many ways especially if they get shelby horseback many ways. Better than what the falcons can throw out there without. The falcons are have all sorts of problems on the defensive side so today's performance was impressive in the sense that tastes them hill. Didn't look like an abject disaster out there and you know that he's going to be able to get some rushing opportunities. Michael thomas got finally got one hundred yard receiving game alvin. Kamara got a touchdown in the game. So you know the the regular guys were all gonna get touches and they're all gonna make plays but if they can get taste some hills to make some mistakes hold onto that ball too long you do like the broncos chances to get them behind the chains to get them behind schedule and if the broncos offense can play complementary and and put up some numbers like they did today. I really like their chances. All right hope. You enjoyed the victory. Monday broncos daily podcast tomorrow on tuesday. I will have a conversation with ian rapoport from nfl network as well as maliki read broncos outside linebacker. And we'll see what's going on on the broncos injury front as well.

BK Talks Pats & Chiefs with Dr. Rick Lewis

"When four friends from Washington DC most elite prep school are hacked they're thrust into a global conspiracy that threatens to expose DC's influential families meet the daughters of DC listen to daughters of DC on the iheartradio APP or wherever you get your podcasts. We'll be no deaths by inches. This is the broncos daily podcast with Brandon Krisztal. I want everything. I want all the meatballs Apostol. Happy Wednesday broncos country even out her a few weeks at NYPD guys hanging and. The ring amid week. broncos daily podcast had a good chance to talk to my guy. Rick Lewis yesterday the color analysts on the broncos radio network and. Fun. Discussion at the end about Rick's desire to be a doctor or to get a doctorate you'll hear that not a lot going on a broncos country. Expectedly, they did move on from Timmy Jernigan. That's because at least one if not, both of those defensive lineman are going to be ready to come back and Dream Aunt, Joan's and Damarcus Walker. So appreciate Jernigan. Services, I'm sure the broncos somehow win the super bowl the way to send him a ring and then Brandon McManus in the least surprising news of the day or certainly of the week named AFC special teams player of the week for the second straight game. And I believe third time in his career. So even though there was a break in between because of the by week, he is now tied with. Justin Tucker who saw day for most multiple fifty yard field goals in a game with six twelve or thirteen this year he's made all eight of his. Forty four total points he has five fifty yard field goals through the seven weeks that's tied a career high for him and so. Good to see McManus for the second straight time. When the AFC. Special Teams Player of the week it's the. Twenty. Eight time that a broncos player has won it. And obviously the second street time for in the BRONCOS will be back to work today and they continue to get ready for the chiefs. No new positive test. So that's always good news. Drew. Lock. Will continue to get more comfortable back in there as the starter and Dalton Reisner I guess our last piece of news likely not gonNA. This week, that's the sense that I get talking to People Benjamin Albright put it out there and then rick and I talk about it as well because he talks to Dalton drew lock in Bradley Chubb Every Week So. It'll be kind of a bummer I. Don't know. Though there, there's not as huge a drop off with Austin Shelton as maybe some other spots potentially when you when you lose a starter and it looks like it'll only be for a game or so and then hopefully, if no offense back, you and Alberto together could be a pretty lethal combo that the chiefs. Will be having to account for their on the field together So fingers crossed all that happens before we get to chat with Rick Lewis on remind you about chuck, water chilly.

Conversation with the color analyst for the broncos radio network here six to nine every day on the Rick Lewis shown one, three, five of the Fox nine to noon on Logan and Louis on Koa, the one and only Lewis. Jack Jack. Jack we talk back to me. Thank. You. Okay go again. Sorry. One to check one two. Identical. Coming down. In three two. And one. Rick Pretty Exciting this past weekend Andrew Lock back in action and the Broncos go into a place where hardly anyone ever comes away with the road win and steel that I don't say still at win got and beat the Patriots in Foxborough. Yet was, in fact, drew lock was the youngest quarterback to ever win at Gillette Stadium. which seems hard to believe but that just tells you how great the Patriots have been in the Pella check era. Idiot was fun. So two games in a row, two wins in a row both on the road. of very unlikely win streak seventeen days apart, I don't know if that's ever happened in broncos history. You probably have to go back many many decades to see if that's ever happened in the national football league. But this is what it's like here in the Year of covert twenty. Twenty So I asked this to a couple of players in the Post Game Zoom and then I, brought it up I. Think I talked to Big Al Joe Joe I'm on vacation this week I'm stopped talking to those guys. But talk him on Monday I, use this comparison. I haven't use it on here in a while probably since talking about Peyton manning but I used to bring it up all the time from a million years ago I used to show with Kenny Smith when shack was playing with the with the heat and so that gives you an idea of how long ago it was. But what he said about shack and then I and I sold it and use the same thing about Peyton manning is that when you have Shaquille O'Neal on your team especially at that point of his career, he played his best ball he still. To whatever twelve years in still dominate, it just changed your confidence level of the entire team even games that he wasn't healthy and it was mostly young Dwayne Wade carrying them, and so just you know it's what John. Fox You say about PEYTON manning rising tide raises all boats right or a high tide raising. A. High tide raises all boats and so. Peyton obviously was that even. In twenty, fifteen where we know he wasn't what we thought and so drew lock as far from a finished product and he isn't Patrick Mahomes or Russell Wilson Aaron Rodgers any of these guys yet. But the difference this team, the difference in the way this team plays in looks when drew lock is just on the field, not that he's lighting it up is is so noticeable to me I gotta think it's noticeable to you and plenty of. People in broncos country and his broncos teammates. That's a good analogy if you were listening to the game and it's not, you should be on the radio. I mentioned that during the game that drew lock is the motor. And I'm also mentioned Philippians at these the spark plug. Those guys bring a lot of energy to this offense at that was missing. When they were both out there's no doubt about it. It's noticeable. You see it. You see on the field, you see it on the sideline. -joy that. Drew Lock. Brings just the joy of football that he brings to this team. It seems to lift everybody up. That's a fact. There's no doubt about that. We know he has all the skills. That you would ever want for your franchise quarterback. We know he has all the intangibles. In. Some of those we talked about for your franchise quarterback he's still a work in progress. He needs more time he needs more reps, he needs more experience, but I feel really good about drew lock. What does he play seven and a half games? Ten snaps. Yeah I mean, that's Really. Play a half a season yet take about that he's five and two in games in which he started and finished He looks like he's the guy and I feel good about him at quarterback for the Denver Broncos just needs to stay healthy needs to continue to develop. Let's hope he continues to do that this year by the time we get to the end of the football season I. Just hope it's really obvious to everybody that we've got our quarterback, but which you mentioned be K. is is very, very astute. You picked up on it and I picked up on it, and I'm sure other. Intelligent football fans or big broncos, fans that watch carefully picked up on it as well and so then you look at the rest of the offense and if I would have told you at the end of last season. That the broncos were going to sign a running back when you thought about all the needs ad and where everyone felt like Garrett Bowles? Wasn't his career you scratch your head but then Mallon Gordon come in and played his as well as advertised for what you saw from him when he was healthy with the chargers. Philip. Lindsey got banged up in the first half and you were kind of I'm sure there are plenty people man I wonder filled time here is not done but. Just kind of done you know for lack of a better way to put it then Gordon has the weird week that he has. It's probably pretty unique and a lot of a lot of different respects and Bill Lindsay goes out in for the time in his career one hundred yard game broncos are six. No when he does it and he reminds you that he runs differently than than Melvin does I'm not saying that he runs better he certainly faster and maybe touch quicker and. So now you'll have them both healthy at least for a little while you gotta hope if Gordon's back and ready to roll. But with Philip Lindsey to the broncos need to think about figuring out how to extend him and I. Don't say move on from Melvin Gordon right away but it's a two year deal you'll pay essentially thirteen million for this year. Because I guess five and the guarantee. Are you inclined to to want to go that way because playing people and Broncos country that are I didn't think I was one of them. But on Sunday I was you know it definitely opened my mind up to that possibility. I think I think they're great. One, Two Punch I. Think They Complement Each Other? Melvin. Gordon is what we thought. He was and what the broncos thought he was he's he's really a three down back. He does everything pretty well. and Philip Lindsey does some things better? But Melvin Gordon does something better than Philip Lindsay as well I think Melvin Gordon's a better pass blocker. Melvin Gordon certainly a better pass. Catcher. I think Melvin Gordon. Being bigger guy is a guy. You would want having the ball on the goal line. when it's you know Third Boehner. Certain goal or second goal from the one yard line I. Think that's the guy you probably want to be. Carrying the football and he's been that guy is entire NFL career. But I think they're a great one two punch and and I think you're going to need both of them. Look at you need them both right now you needed them both when Philip was hurt. Luckily. They have two backs of that caliber moving forward I I certainly think Philip Lindsey deserves a contract you deserve to get paid. I would love to see both of them stick around here because I do think they're the perfect complement for each other in. Let's face it running backs of a tough time. Stay unhealthy. It Philip. Lindsay you know that that's one thing maybe. Maybe I. Don't know but maybe the broncos look at his ability because of his size. and. He has been injured what three times. Since he started here in three years. Maybe they're looking at that going, well, you know, can we count on him? Being durable, enough, and healthy enough to play sixteen games season. Well. Let's hope. So because he's he's a heck of a player and he does bring a lot of excitement. He's he's a big play guy. He's a big play maker more than Melvin Gordon. He's the guy that can break one Melvin Gordon is not going to break one offer sixty yards for a touchdown Philip Lindsey will, and so I think it's a great compliment I'd like to see them, keep them both and pay Phil well, and so it'll be interesting to see because we didn't see it very much. I need to go back to week one and see how many snaps were Melvin and Philip on the field together and and Vic Fangio I think tank on Monday where he said that. Maybe we'll finally see the two of them on the field together some of the stuff that we had drawn up or envision. So almost kind of letting the cheese known as the chiefs are going to be surprised but hey, you're gonNA have to account for both of these guys and we're gonNA use them in different ways using together but they will be out there together at times because you're about to face a team that's maybe the best in the League at stressing defense. And putting lots of different looks and putting guys in different spots, they're gonNA, add levy on bell to the mix, which is kind of a scary thought but with tyreek Hill and Michael Hartman and obviously we know about Kelsey and you know that kind of running back by committee with a bunch of really good backs Williams and now the the rookie and like I said Bell. So I guess I'm excited to see what the offense to your point and so I'm I'm now making. Just, reinforcing your point getting the two of them together is exciting. I just don't know long term it makes a lot of sense. Well look at the chiefs you mentioned the chiefs do they need lake on bell? No. With. Hilar- That's a great one, two punch in a in a great complimentary backfield as well. Maybe pretty similar to which got with Gordon Philip. Linzie. In the we all know running backs have a hard time staying healthy and so I think it's good to have them both I'd like to have them both throughout the season next year to that means you're going to have to pay Philip. Every week you talked to dollarized Reisner Bradley Chubb and Drew Lock, and you've already done all those. What was essentially you got from I guess we'll go through one thing for me to one of them but from do lot coming off that win and where he is and his development and and then obviously you know he's getting play against his his childhood team fifteen minutes from from where he grew up is where they play their ball. You may not believe the stories that he dated the owner's daughter Instagram would certainly indicate that it seems like he did for. So how how was drew when you talk to him. He was great like he always is very upbeat, very accountable. He talked about the bad throws that he had in the game instead of the good throws that he had in the game I asked him about his former college teammate Elbert Okwu AAC Woon-ahm Yup I think that's close enough right now listen fact I asked him how do you pronounce his name? And he laughed and he pretty much just call him. Albert Oh for sure and I said, yeah that's what I did and I sit in fact at one point I just call them Alpert. That's an enemy scores a touchdown. Calling Prince Albert Right. Yeah and and you could tell he loves that guy and he said he. I'm paraphrasing delighted to have him on the same team. with him in the NFL he he thought when they parted ways at Missouri that would be it. and. You could see he's got chemistry with this guy and he did mention to on the show with Dave Logan that he said he's GonNa make those catches. He's GonNa catch those balls. To. Big. Drops. To to catchable balls in he said, he'll make those catches. So he's got a lot of confidence in the guy as he should. and. The Guy looks like he can play. But yeah, you do have to be able to make those catches in the national football league or you're not gonNA get enough playing time to to show anybody that you can play. So I I think it's going to be interesting became this weekend to get a healthy. No of fans. And Albert Okwu Egg Benham on the field at the same time talk about a a nightmare, a nightmare matchup. for a defenses and then maybe. You know you throw in a put up knowing Gordon and Philip Lindsey in there together. Where you don't know if they're going to throw the ball to Gordon out of the backfield or have Philip, Lindsay rip-off run you don't keep them on their toes a little bit. Yeah. It'll be nice to give the chiefs taste of their own medicine are Benjamin Albright and maybe more people that have had looked into this as well. said that it doesn't seem likely Dalton rising its plan that will end his Co. Mini ironman streak. He's only been in the league. For Whatnot Twenty one game sell. It wasn't. He wasn't coming in cl close to Manning's I. Think it's ally had it or Brother. Whoever had it? I? Think it's anyway. what's essentially got talking to him. When we talked to them I think it seemed pretty apparent. that. He's GonNa miss some time and he didn't say. I don't know when they plan on announcing his injury or the extent of his injury, but it seemed apparent that he didn't want to say but he was very upbeat. In basically said, don't worry you know. I'M GONNA be back soon, I'm going to be back soon. So what is that a game two games who knows hopefully hopefully, not very long Because they definitely need them. Yeah, and maybe we'll see in a tiny mucci dress and and I think a lot of people get in at some point of the Austin. I thought handled himself. Pretty well, in the team actually protected Patrick Morris this week for the first time, which makes me think Patrick Morris might leapfrogging tiny. Game Day call up, or they've got that extra linemen that they have to that they're allowed to dress. So why wouldn't you do it but yeah, I I'm I'm with you obscene Dalton last year Wednesday Thursday Friday. Towards the end of the year middle middle to the end of the year walking around in a walking boot in the locker room and then he played every week. So at least a couple times so. That was good to see, and then you talk about injuries and a guy that has clearly shaken the rust off Bradley Chubb, when Y'all talk to him I imagine because I get to talk to him every Friday for pre-game. His mood is certainly a upbeat as well and I. It seems like he's come in and maybe the healthy Bradley Chubb gets the less Vic Fangio has to designed crazy blitzes. Yeah, he's the ball and you know you watch him play with the intensity that he plays with. He's also one of the leaders of this team, not just on defense, but one of the leaders of the team in the guy is back in the Groove, it's fun to watch him a man. He's Norton Spit and Snot out there and really going after the quarterback putting a lot of pressure on the quarterback I I'm not sure if he's one hundred percent or not but it certainly looks like he's back in and it has made a difference and also the fact that Vic Fangio suddenly. became. Listen. Vic. Fangio. We hardly saw him blitz at all last year and the first couple of games this year but man is he turned up the heat. These last couple of games and it's really paid off they had four sacks in the first three games. This season ten sacks in the last two games. As he dialed that blit up. So you know we talked to him about that and he basically said it's situational. You know depending on. What he sees from kindergarten game offensively. But it certainly seems like It's GonNa be definitely in his toolbox. Here for a while because it's working for them and you don't want about Vic Fangio to be k. and I told him this. When he came on the show I, really feel like he's hit his groove as a head coach. I got the feeling last week. The way he handled the NFL moving the game. You know his attitude about it he is starting to emerge to me as. A real NFL head coach you know as you know in all football fans now there's a lot of great coordinators that are not very good head coaches. And he has proven. He's a great coordinator I think he is now proven that he's got the potential to be very good head coach as well, and and I think the the team believes in him they come to play every week with all the injuries they've had on this football team they show up every week and they put on a good effort and. That's a good sign that they're they're on the same page is their coach. Yeah. I I called the game in in. Foxborough. The Best Win of Vic Andrew Locks Bradley victim in a part of some great winds. He went to the Super Bowl with the niners as a as a coordinator but obviously, in his current role, I think anyone that knows. understands context understood. I was saying, and for drew lock yeah the win in. HOUSTON. He did more but to your point earlier to be the youngest to go in there and place where even really old veteran quarterbacks. Manny don't go in and win very often and I get Tom Brady was on the other side of that for two decades but. This team is it doesn't seem like they're slouches by any means. So it's good to see with all those guys and you touched on something 'cause I was trying to figure out the best way to get into it without a rough transition before we just look at this chiefs game real quickly and you mentioned all the things that happened last week well, like I mentioned because. The baby's here. Now I'm taking a couple of weeks off of my day to day stuff. I'm still obviously doing the podcast a little bit and and other pre-game stuff and all that. I got an email from the broncos. It said Hey, your status changed and to let people behind the curtain I've certainly talked about being tested every day and with a high risk pregnant wife, I was happy to be tested every day. No problem benefits is GONNA pay hundred thirty bucks for my tests. Every day I'll drive right over and get that Kobe test well, and they moved us twice in the last two weeks out of the main building media room into the practice facility. Then back into the main lobby was where the they moved us to last week. Now, I wasn't there because I was. At Sky Ridge waiting for our little girl discharged, and so I didn't get to set up a desk near all the trophies which would have been pretty cool although it's echoes hell and they're so my reports would have sounded like crap anyway. Now, the NFL because I did anything or anyone else has revoked all of our to instead it's not just me Jeff Bagwell, Mike Klis Ryan o'halloran, Arnie Stapleton, and the rest at every building in the League and so I'm saying all that to say. All right. This is one little change that the NFL's doing I hear that they were gonNA. Strip other people status as down to, and you might have personnel people that are normally in the. Building and other staffers that won't be in the building now until the end of the season. So one are you surprised to hear stuff like this and then to do you think because I I know I certainly going to get worse before it gets better I, I'll put worse than quotes. We're just GONNA more cases they're going to have to get tricky with the schedule. We'll see we eighteen and nineteen to that feel like an inevitability to you. It does unfortunately. And you know so far the the Denver broncos have managed it very well. and. Let's hope that continues through the rest of the year. They've done a great job with it and and here they are. You know they're trying to play. A contact sport, they're trying to play football during a pandemic. And so yeah, you're going to have to be flexible. I think there's GonNa be a week eighteen. I really do because you can only fill so many by weeks for these teams as we go along the Broncos, have already filled up thereby week. So that's not an option for them anymore and I and I think as we go along here, you're going to see. Other games, cancelled and other teams dealing with the covert outbreaks. That's just how it is I. Think they're doing a good job with it they're trying to do this in not in a bubble. You know the NBA NHL handled it amazingly in a bubble. You know and did incredible job. Baseball did a pretty good job with it to not in a bubble and the difference is this is a contact sport. and. It makes it a little more difficult but I I like the way they're figuring things out. they're managing it there mitigating the the problem and so far. So good. What are we in five games now for Denver? Six. Six for the League. Yeah, I think we can get there I. Think we'll get through. A sixteen game season for all the teams but it might take an extra week or two, and here's the thing I know that you will absolutely one hundred percent. Well, regardless of what weeks who were both Sunday occurs in you'll be sitting down like you do every year and watching the super bowl fingers crossed that we used to do it in in larger groups because we've turned a corner as it relates to corona virus but I'm I just watched Kobe. Kobe. Kobe. Team Lebron win a championship more than a year after they started the regular season. preseason training camp same with hockey more than a year. Later, we're watching baseball on essentially empty stadiums. They get nine thousand people that will see for the world series or whatever that number is down in Arlington. And I'm fine with it. I'm GonNa Watch the masters in November, and I certainly watch the super bowl a couple of weeks. Later, the NFL wants to be a slave to this calendar and I guess it doesn't do them any good to to keep saying, yeah we'll add week eighteen will week nineteen, sixty cross that bridge when you come to it but they have to have a million schedules written up at the League office ready to adjust on the fly and have Tampa on notice and maybe some other cities about doing playoff bubbles leading up to Tampa Dallas L. A.. Saying we're going to have the first few rounds of playoffs in those cities and I'm fine with it. I'm still going to watch every single game every of every game. Absolutely. Yeah. I will too. I don't care when they play the Super Bowl. I'm going to be watching it. To me, that's a testament to. American. Per. Perseverance. American ingenuity it makes me proud. It makes me proud when I see how we as a country are able to manage this it's still keep our lives going. It's still keep doing things that we like to do. And do it in a safe way. It. Does make me. It gives me a sense of pride. There's no doubt about it. And let's just keep this going man and you know we're learning more and more about this virus really almost data day. things that we know now we had no idea. When they started back in in March and that's why they completely shut everything down. Had to figure it out. Well, they're figuring it out. There's enough drugs that work. We know that through. There's a vaccine that should be out here soon at least for. Emergency workers than probably then essential workers. And then they'll get down to people like you and me that don't matter that much. But we're getting there man we're getting there and and it makes me proud to be an American absolutely speaking of the Super Bowl the super bowl champs are coming in and we don't need to dissect how good they are. But you've watched him some lose against the raiders to when we ended up with a plan by week. So do you think the Broncos have enough based on what you saw in New England where we know it'll be fifty, seven, hundred fans there That'll be the number through the rest of the year. At least that's what we've been told to this point will those fifty seven hundred fans be walking out of their least ones weren't broncos jerseys with a with a smile? Sunday. Does it like a realistic possibility knowing how good this team has been? Yes, and the chief team is very, very good. We all know about but sure look at the chiefs. Against the chargers. A few weeks back, charges hadn't beat. The chargers and what are they? One one four One. Five hundred forty, four, they had yeah. You're right. Did that game was one I mean it was all but one it looked like the broncos in so many Angelina recently where they are dead to rights and then. You know the visiting team or the again ends up stealing that win. With a rookie quarterback. Charlie. Zero fresh. So so yeah. When you look at that of course, they can beat the Kansas City chiefs probably not likely but it can be done and this would be a good test for the Denver Broncos to see how they stay how they fare against the World Champs and I'm sure they're they're licking their chops they're ready to go. THEY WANNA play the best now it would be you know obviously better if you had cortlandt sutton back and von Miller back and you could add in. Some. Of these guys that that have gotten injured along the way I would feel a lot better about it if we had. You know a healthy roster but. You know you got you got you play who you who you have on your roster and. And these some of these backups, these twos and threes that normally wouldn't get a chance to play at all. There's been a few of them that have shown that they belong in this league I'm taking Michael Ocho Moody and particular. A cornerback I if boy a doesn't get hurt. We probably don't see much of him at this point of the season. But he got thrown into the fire and every single week he's gotten better. You gotTa feel pretty good about him. Now, if boy comes back against the chiefs, which looks like that's a pretty good chance. Now, you've got this rookie that you can use in various packages as well and he's shown that he can play. Yeah, I think the future is bright because of the building blocks that this young team has and I it's so funny I raise ready to give on the season going into now this week and we'll see what happens. Well, we we know how good the chiefs are but their losses. I think. Are Two teams that are combined fourteen in in our all three leading their division. So Two undefeated teams, and then we know how good the bucks are the bucks maybe by the time it's all said and done the most complete team in football sell. Yeah. With you. Now before I, let you runnin and I've trick you again because you said, let's do a quick one and of course, I always steal more time than you your brain but it's because you love talking to me and love the great broncos daily podcast listeners. was there anything that you? Didn't get to use. Sunday that use it got a big laugh. I was listening to the broadcast as I. continue my twitter not dumb. tweeting slightly ahead of the TV and I'm beating the guys that are at the Game Live Rhino o'halloran Andrew Mason or at every road game and I'm getting INFO to that they're watching it. It's happening. It's got to be happening in. There is a split second before you dave say it but I'm able to pick a bunch of injuries and some other stuff. Thanks to you guys. So was there one or two things? Got The. We talked about I made a few comments again about the cardboard. Really cold in the stadium Sunday and they were all sleeveless. Over short. Sleeves. It's so I made some comments about how they were called and you know maybe that's why they weren't making much noise and they at the end when the game was in question, they were sitting at the edge of their seats, but we're just not getting enough out of those cardboard cutouts and David Hypo. Said, you know we need some new cardboard cutouts okay. Because these guys have let us down a little bit. They're just they're just too quiet their stoic they just sit there stare at you. I think I did hear that they. Did. Yeah Yeah one thing I also never got the chance to bring up. The mccourty brothers here I find very interesting. They. gave the commencement speech at Rutgers last year. And that's where they graduated from and then they got honorary doctorates from rutgers. Okay and I was hoping I could could've worked into the game somehow because number one I think that's really interesting and number two I was going to ask Dave if he could talk to see you about getting both David some honorary doctorates in fact, I brought it up today on a radio show on Koa and. We'll see if we get any traction with that. David Football Helmet today. Wow, because he doesn't have a football helmet. So the next step is to get the honorary doctorate from CEO. At the very least Metro, which is right there from where you guys call the game she's like Metro state could could send one over. I'll take an honorary doctorate from red rocks community common I don't care I. don't care where I'll just take. I'd like to get a whole wall full of honorary doctorates. Or the one that makes the most sense University of Phoenix Online right They've got a lovely online campus as pretty an online campus. He'll see you phoenix is your second home these days. So I'm going to push for that. Okay. Well, thank you. Yeah. Let's get this going. I wanted to put that out there Dr Recruits. We'll see if we get new bite. All right. Well, I'll just start calling you doctor and we'll see if it sticks and then. And then we can just tell everyone honorary degree. We tell you tell people that stuff that may or may not be true that you're not even. Sure whether it's true other than we know you're the first person to put a corona and lime at least in America and so we don't know if that's true. With the backwards that is. Trump saying of the other claims well. Sure but I'M GONNA start calling you doctor and then when we tell people that you have An honorary doctorate from University of Phoenix online or global which we know sponsored. Stuff on the broadcast maybe we can say that you've got an honorary doctorate from there. So Dr Lewis. Who certainly your doctor the world right I appreciate you let me steal more than we plan and I'll see you Sunday the stadium. DOC Louis Out. All right Dr Lewis at least Dr Radio Rick Lewis. Probably. Look all over the region deceiving and find someone give him an honorary doctorate or. Get honorary doctorates. So I'm pulling for for sure but he certainly a doctor a radio and I'll I'll remind him of that. So I appreciate you listen. We won't have one tomorrow GONNA talk to hopefully Kevin Harland. But definitely, my guys Josh Klingler Imbaba Vesco you get a preview of the chiefs on Friday I'm on vacation but you know podcasts must roll on so. Spacing out a little but wanted to make sure you guys could get the. Weekly dosage of Rick Lewis and keep the podcast.

The one and only colfax million. How are you man? I'm fantastic? How are you know too bad another day? Another dollar I. Suppose continuing to study updates. I suppose When when you're looking at these leagues and what's going to happen? I know Los Angeles. The Lakers at least have asked the city. You know if if they could open up their practice facility and start to get in and start getting the teams together. So you're seeing more of that now on this last day of April does that mean teams are going to start in the next week or so think about getting together getting together and practicing and getting something going I know the on the NHL side of things. They're they're having some serious discussions about what that's going to look like in the next month or so and then obviously we talked about baseball yesterday with a realignment of the Divisions Abbott the NHL hopes to reopen training facilities in late May. So what does that look like if training facilities in late? May Are. We're GONNA need to go the entire month then without hockey and then we and then take two weeks or so before you get so maybe June June might be the target for a lot of things going on so just we'll keep our eyes open our. It's our power play. Sports poll question of the day said we were GONNA do this. One win allowed to attend games again win. Will you do so go? Vote at the whole show dot com Colfax. There's four options in this today. Once there is a vaccine. You'll you'll go. Yes as soon as possible. You don't care you're just going to go. You're going to get in a car if it is deemed. Say or legal. I guess whatever I don't know what the term is you WANNA use but if it's deemed okay to go to a game. You're in the car you're buying a ticket you're going or not in two thousand twenty. You're basically saying you know what I'm not even going to look at it. I only went to a couple of games. Whatever I'm I'm not even gonNA look going to a game this year or if stadiums ensure proper proper safety precautions basically. Hey do you have to wear a mask? People are sitting more than six feet away from each other. We have you know. Instead of allowing seventy seven thousand people into the stadium were only allowing thirty thousand people into the stadium or or something like that enough a small enough amount where you can sit a far enough. Sit Away you know. Sit At least six ten feet away from each other so go vote on that one at the whole show dot com right now. The whole organs are saying thirty seven percent of the Hogan's are saying yes as soon as possible. You're ready to get in the car as soon as they say. It's okay to go. You're going which is you know if we're starting June. I can't imagine fans will be going for the first month or so. I mean if not more all right so let me read some of your comments on this one overall rick says as a CSU football and basketball season ticket holder. It will not only be very disappointing as a fan but could be financial disaster for C. issue and other universities Lindsay says. I Miss Basketball so much. I go to a game tonight. I missed my nuggets playing so many games and Kevin says yes absolutely your thoughts on this first advantage text line three one nine nine six three one nine nine six win. You're allowed to go to a game winner when are you? Are you hold off? Maybe there's a small group to Colfax it's like you know. I never went to games in the first place that much with the way. Tv was all the different camera angles. I mean I personally prefer you know now as a guy that covers a lot of sports so I constantly want to see what's going on. I have a two year old so i. I actually kind of prefer watching games at home but I do go to games during the football season. I'm going to a football game almost every weekend whether that's a shoe or on the side of things or even on the UNC side of things. I'm going to a game mostly again. Most of you know I go to a lot of sea issue games. We are the voice of the bear so we always have somebody on site at a bears game so we try to spread it out and then but drive into boulder to go to a see you game Colfax. My goodness takes forever takes forever to get out of there and you know me. I like to get good lost and you can. It's easy to do that. I'll tell you canvas. Stadium is so simple to get in on the media side. It's just the west side of the stadium is a media door. You go in it. You go up the top floor. The elevators open. There's the Meteo it's beautiful. I love the campus. I love the SA- Stadium and everything fulfills beautiful in boulder. But there's a lot more confusing for me to figure that out so I'm always I'm trying. I'm about eliminating confusion Colfax. That's that is my goal. But maybe you're you're the Kinda guy that didn't really go anyway. So it's like yeah you're voting on it's probably not even GonNa go in two thousand twenty Colfax. You're not gives you a few nuggets games this year though I did. Yeah and you can just starting maybe two or three games before the last game. Cain was you. Go TO CLIPPERS GAMES CLIPPERS. No Dang it it was given a one. Wasn't it did win. It was kind of in the midst of the struggles. They were having but they found a way to win. It was against a tough team. Miami Clippers game. Yeah Yeah so yeah for me personally I. I will go as soon as they let us. As soon as you you so you're GONNA go get a ticket here in a go to a game and see what happens now. I mean if I was a guy that went to games all the time that I had. I personally like if we have to wear masks okay. Whatever we'll do have to do but I if I went I I'd go. Yeah that's me. If they're saying all right we're having games and we're getting to the point where we're going to allow some fans to attend. I'M GONNA go. That's just now I mean I'll I'll be safe. I'M NOT GONNA. I'm GonNa Stop Sneezing on people. Apparently you shouldn't be apparently shouldn't be sneezing on people that some of the things I see on social media and even just when you go to the Cova nineteen updates. It's like put your make sure you're covering your you know your nose when you sneeze and stuff. I'm like you run around like my two year old and just go blah blah and everybody's face so I can't take all the credit for this but my girlfriends who's quite keen on things she's like. I think it's so weird that people are using their elbows to trying. You know social distance when the instead of a handshake and She's like I think that's ridiculous. Because most people will either sneeze or cough into their elbows and now everyone's just touching their elbows which have been. That's a good way of saying on the elbow thing. I mean well you would think your elbows might be pretty dirty too because like I wash my hands. Four hundred seventy five times a day off to clean. I never just wash my elbows. You ever watch her up and just in the shower. That's it. I mean elbows thing is way way less than your elbows. Always on a surface when you're sitting at a table. Think about a guy that your desk. That's a little crazy to me so I went to A. I had a checkup. Just A RANDOM CHECK UP WITH DR. Probably three or four weeks before everything happened. And even the doctor said I'M GONNA I'm GonNa do a little Madonna elbow hit with you instead so we didn't shake hands or any of that. I didn't do my usual hug but we did a little elbow thing. Hug Your doctors all the time you gotTa let them know that you care about the man. I mean help you they usually. I usually have to switch doctors a lot because after that it's over. Yeah he did the thing that's interesting. Isn't that weird? Well the other thing too. It's like they're saying it's a it's an airborne thing and it's coming out of your nose and you can get what is washing. What is washing the hands? Really do it. I guess if you don't want to if you have it on your hand maybe you don't WanNa touch your face but I don't know if that's pasta. I don't know but just wash your hands. You weren't washing them before so wash them now. That was the big push when this first started. Have you noticed that this thing has had its phases of trends? You know it was like slow the Kerr. I haven't been hearing that as much. That's kind of gone away. Wash the hands you. Google Corona virus. The third thing on the Google site is how to wash your hands properly and apparently I've been doing it wrong. Some artists that I kind of respect like on their spotify is they. They quarantined put out a bunch of new music during the quarantine and some of them were like. Wash your hands song. I'm like what what are you doing? Just wash it. Put it under the thing. Yeah put the soap on the thing. Wash it. You're done you're good. You go wash your hands. It's move on B Rad. Says I would definitely go with the family. I'm over this nice. You Know Colfax I tried to sell a a calloused guy but yes. I'm getting to the point where you know. We see what it's doing to these businesses in sports is listen. That's the entertainment side of it. But we have said this for years on this program any sports program when tragedy strikes when terrible things happen. We all the sports. We all do the cliche thing and just and say well we gotta remember what's really important really puts things into perspective. It should always be perspective first off you should when someone dies or an epidemic happens or something. That's we shouldn't take that to say. Oh Yeah I guess. Sports isn't the most important thing in the world. Now it's it's family. It's people relationships those things but we always say this and I am one hundred percent agree. Sports is amazing for us because it gives us a little bit of a relief a little bit of a release from what's going on and I keep saying this and I've said it several times on the show census happened Ray. Lewis was onto something. When he said there would be more murders. I mean again. Strange I know but he said there would be more murders. There would be more crime if there was no football and I think that was around the time the NFL almost went on and another lockdown or lockout. And he talked about that. There's truth to that. There's truth to the fact that people get stir crazy. They need their entertainment. And whether that's sports or music or Broadway. Whatever you do need it. I mean Colfax. I also step aside on Wednesdays and do the nerd show. They've halted like all production on on the new movies coming out and such so And I know these people are trying to zoom thing like parks and REC did zoom episode. Or whatever they're all zoom meeting if that works okay. You're trying to do something. If people can be entertained by fine I mean I'm not gonNA knock it. I'm not I'M NOT GONNA. I'm not into that sort of thing but I i WanNa Watch something to take me away from reality. I don't necessarily want to watch something. Says Wow can't even watch a TV show because they're living in that same world to know. I want you to be in your own World I want you to be at your parks and Rec World. Stuff like that. Yeah all right. So that's our power to play. Sports poll question of the day when they do lift things which I still don't have a date I don't know but we are hearing leagues are talking about this. They're starting to put together some plans for practice. And that's the first step we gotta get guys back together. Get teams back together or they can start practicing so go. Vote on that one. I want to see where this one ends up. I truly do. I'm actually going to be doing a good friend of mine. A company he's running guy lives I believe he lives in Hawaii. But he's he was a follower of the show when he in in Colorado and we're going to be He put together a a Webinar for his company and he has a CEO of a major company. I'm not going to give out his information and then I'm going to be joining it as well and we're GONNA be talking about fan experience how that's going to change or will it change In those of you. They're saying you're going to go. I. I'm curious ones. That aren't going to go. And how long does that last? Because I'm guessing the same ones that are saying they're going to go to sports. Games are going to have no problem going to a restaurant right off the bat and US being a local radio station that is supported by businesses Colfax. I know as soon as we're allowed to go to a restaurant you know when they say that it's okay to do that. I'm going to be going to a restaurant. I'm going to be going to the Windsor Mill Tavern. That's just that's the way it's going to be wants. Were allowed to do that. So and I I would consider that the same with games if I was a if I if I was a guy that went to a lot of games in me before this that I'm probably going to a lot of games after the situation so I want your thoughts on this when I events text. Line three one nine nine six three one nine nine six or you can go to our facebook page or follow me on twitter at. Bray whole one and follow along with our poll questions that we do. Throughout the day stories that were sharing some stories coming up about Andy. Dalton we're talking to Kelly lyles tonight see. She's got a good one. Everybody's doing classics. We are too. We've got Unc Big Sky Championship from two thousand eleven UNC. A Montana I believe tonight and then tomorrow will be resurrection Christian and Platte Valley sure which year what year that was but it was a couple of years ago so some great games that we're GONNA be playing back for you. See Issues played a pretty historic game. So we'll talk about that a little bit later on our a lot to talk about a lot to discuss today also. The Denver Post put together their greatest athlete bracket we all kind of knew John. Elway would end up there. Who's he going up against for the championship and who was thrown in this bracket that maybe maybe it didn't even know would be in that bracket at all so we'll discuss that. I think that's interesting. That's a lot of fun All that and more this is the whole show powered by PD ENERGY. Right here on thirteen ten. Kfi You're listening to the hall's show powered by PW energy and thirteen ten KFI K. Brady will be back after the break. The best to UNC bear starting game coverage lives on thirteen ten. Kfi H Dan Patrick. And you're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten K F K That'd be tough to go to like a rock concert. When you have the social distancing order you know when people like to do the What do you call in the front with her? Mosh pit stop. It would be tough to do that when you kind of have to do the fake like you're over there. Hey let's jump in the air and act like we kinda got hit. You know that kind of thing. It's no fun do you get into the mosh pit stuff? D? Do that when you're there because you've been to some rock concert. Oh Yeah and my younger days. You did the mind. I was never much of a mosh pit. Kinda Guy No. I'm a sit down in the back. Enjoy the music. Do a little head. Bob had not thing had a little bit. But that's about it. That's about it for me. Yeah that's where I'm at nowadays. You know years ago. Probably put all over. The place takes shirts off. Get All sweaty and stuff and you almost like your mission. Guys are intense out. Oh it's weird. It is Weird. Some of them were like looking around for people. They're gonNA run into well when I went to the flaw concert at the MOXIE. There's only like eight of us. There's a Wednesday night. It wasn't just one of those weird shows. There's people try to mosh pit. They're like do. There's five of us and you know none of us are drinking because it's Wednesday to go to work tomorrow. So we're having red bull's no it's not gonNA work man. It's not gonNA work. Yeah I don't know about that. Yeah a little crazy though. I just text line three one nine nine six E. Yeah I mean this. Is this so this poll question? I'm going to be using for this Webinar that I'm going to be a part of in a couple of weeks getting your thoughts on this because I want to hear what the whole against. Thank you know if you're not gonna go for a while. I mean go ahead and vote. You don't have to text in you have to do that The whole show dot com is where to vote. That's our power to play. Sports poll question of the day. Once we're able or allowed to go to games what are you what are you GonNa do. When will you go to a game? Thirty eight percent of the whole against say yes as soon as possible almost forty percent there twenty two percent. Say Once there's a vaccine. I'll go and another twenty percents. I'm out not in two thousand sixteen percent saying if stadiums insure proper safety precautions. I will go or maybe we could have put another option there too. If it's not like a professional college game where it's less than a couple of thousand. Maybe maybe you're considering going such as a high school game or something along those lines. I events text line. Three one nine nine six three one nine nine six the Cincinnati bengals. We all kind of saw this coming have said farewell to Andy Dalton. His long run with the Bengals is over. He was released now. Of course the Bengals have their quarterback of the future in. Lsu's Joe Borough. We knew this was coming. Dalton was set to earn seventeen point seven million dollars in the final season of a six year contract worth ninety six million dollars so the bengals trying to spend a lot of money outside of Dalton. Kinda SH A SHOPPING SPREE. If you will to make this team better. They obviously didn't have the salary cap to keep Dalton and it wouldn't make much sense they did try to trade him of earlier just a Anderson from ESPN did mention that said that dealt requested the opportunity to see what's out there but Tough one there Dalton was always kind of a middle of the road quarterback you know when he first started he was he well he took Carson Palmer's job right and that was that whole Carson Palmer thing was really strange with how he ended up leaving Cincinnati. They wouldn't let him leave for a while but Dalton was the guy that came in and took his job and he was pretty good. I mean they went to the playoffs. What five seasons could not get over that Hump in the wildcard spy? Marvin Lewis was pretty solid head coach but they just weren't there. And you know Chris Carter a quote. I like on the show as if you're not if you're not trying to find that quarterback that you truly believe is the quarterback of the future. Then you're wasting your time. So Andy Dalton clearly was not that guy and the bengals are moving on. He was a fine quarterback he just he was never one of those guys that you said. Yeah he's a he's going to be an elite Guy. He is now in that territory. This is what's crazy about quarterback play in the NFL. And it's it's it's amazing to see how how it works. You know. Two thousand eleven twelve. You're thinking Andy Dalton's right there in the mix of guys that could be an upper echelon quarterback but never took that step past the wild card you know. Let's in order to be considered. A great quarterback obviously got to have big numbers and he has some big numbers with the bengals. I mean he leads. The lease organization and touchdown passes an overall. He was he was solid. I mean he was fifty fifty twenty six and one. That's pretty solid. It's a pretty good record from two thousand eleven to two thousand fifteen but his last three seasons twenty thirty five and one so he's going up to this like two thousand fifteen pretty good and then what happened. We slowed the curve on Anti Dalton and he went down and he struggled ever since you know he missed more games in the last three years he had way less passing touchdowns as Qbr was a fifty four from eleven to fifteen and forty nine from sixteen to Nineteen so one hundred twenty four touchdowns in the first four years compared to eighty touchdowns in the final three. So I was. It was a tough go for Dalton. And you knew it was coming. He just never took that next step. And that's the question drew. Lock this. That's why this is going to be the year we drew lock is in his second year going in right. It's going to be his first full year ever but the I don't know that teams are going to do the whole two thousand eleven to two thousand nineteen thing anymore at core. They're GONNA go eight seasons of yeah. You're pretty good. But are you really good? And unless you have other things and this is what I've been harping on the defense like crazy with the broncos unless you have other things that's great if you don't have a great defense then you have to have a great quarterback if you have a great defense. Then maybe you can get by with a slightly above average quarterback which the broncos never had since peyton manning. Trevor Siemian was not there Paxton Lynch was not their case. Keenum was not there Joe. Flacco was not there. Drew Lock is right there on the average point on based on five games and so what will the what the window looked like for drew? Lock especially because you just ramped up the pressure. That's our whole minute video available. The whole show dot com. You you you went all in in free agency and in the draft to make drew lock better. So how how much? How much room do you give the Guy Now? If he's bad next year he's done right. If drew lock is bad. Meaning the Broncos win like six games. They missed the playoffs. He's throwing more interceptions than touchdowns maybe one maybe. He's throwing like twenty four touchdowns but like twenty eight interceptions. But he's not. He's just not winning games. He's not finding ways to win games. Is he done? Do you give up on him. That fast or D. say okay. We're going to give you two years next year is it's wide open. I don't know Colfax some of the moves they made on the defensive side Von Miller. He's not getting any younger. Aj boy is not necessarily a spring chicken so they're looking to get back into the playoffs next season. And if drew lock is not the Guy. Then what happens? That's the question. How much room do you give drew? Lock before you say. He's Andy Dalton. You know he's probably just going to be an okay quarterback for his career and I know it's it's crazy to talk about this. He's only played for five seasons for five games. But this is what I'm saying is what we saw with. Andy Dalton might be pretty rare. Now I mean that might be. Because we're we're looking for the new shiny and if a guy like Aaron Rodgers can have his his replacement already drafted. It just goes to show you coaches. Want their guys and they want to get their guys in and get them learning quickly. I'm curious what that window looks like now for most teams is it a two year window now. Some would argue and say no. I don't care what drew lock does next season. He's the quarterback for at least two more seasons. Because you have to commit you have to build around him. They have done that. There's still going to be question marks. There's a lot of young talent around him still too so it's not all on drew lock but there's a quite a bit that seems like man if he can't get you know and no offense. The idea of not taking the next step is realistic. And now you're just through some speedsters at him. That's that does put a lot of perhaps unnecessary pressure. It's like I've been saying instead of giving drew lock reliable vehicle to drive to college every day. You just gave him a jet and you're basically saying you need to figure this out or we're going to get somebody else to come in here and pilot this thing because tell you what Colfax Aaron Rodgers might not be a green bay packer for long. And so those kind of quarterbacks are that are you know on the end of their rope with certain teams. They're not going to be there in a year. They're going to win out because you don't draft Jordan love in the first round of move up to get him to set him on the bench for three seasons. So that's the point that puts more pressure even on a guy like drew locked. And we know the broncos are prone to going after big time free agents or guys that are going to be backups. Like Joe flacco thirty four minutes after the hour. We'll talk more about that. Carolina will join US talk a little Colorado State And and we're going to relive some rocky mountain showdown history a little bit tonight. If you choose to to check out. What's the issue is putting up on their website and their social media outlets thirty four minutes after the hour. Let's jump out and get the latest on the local sports flash thirteen ten. Kfi PREPS RADIO IS NORTHERN. Colorado's home for the best high school coverage. Hey is Mike Rowe art. You're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten. Kfi Back to the whole show powered by energy just thirty nine minutes after the hour. A lot of a lot of media outlets or even programs like college programs are putting together kind of their their versions of the classics or rebroadcast and such. I mean we're doing it here. We got some UNC game. You see action tonight. On Friday we're going to be playing. Some preps Games Platte Valley and Resurrection Christian Football. I believe so. Yeah we're you know like Mondays. We're going to have some of the old super bowls. I believe Super Bowl. Twenty three will be on Monday. Cincinnati and San Francisco. And now you're seeing course with Colorado state they're playing a good one the The two thousand and two win over the buffs or the the spike game face. Spike Kelly Lyle talking about that with us and that was that brings back a lot of memories for some really really big days for rams fans. Yeah I think that's probably one of the more right conic moments in Colorado State Football History. A lot of folks especially in recent history. I mean there were some. You know things that happened in many many years ago that Probably stand out certainly that Arizona win that they Broadcast two weeks ago was huge beating. you know Arizona in Tucson but this one dancer is right up there as far as any single play single thing. I think this Most CSU fans. I talked to this. Might be number one on the list. It's certainly in the top three as far as just an iconic play and something they'll always remember about Colorado state football so that moment that that you're right though it does stand up there because it isn't that what every rams fan wants to do the buffs that Kinda like stands like that's that's the big thing right. There basically broadcast it out. This is this is how rams fans feel during these games. Yeah I think I think that is a big part of it. Certainly. It's because it was against the you was on the biggest stage in the state. You Know You ebb. Sellout crowd at Mile High State. You know the old Mile High Stadium or maybe it was a new one by that and I forget the urine change. It was still the old one at that. Point Co two You had a sellout crowd. You had everybody watching national. Tv audience and Colorado was ranked number seven in the country and it was their opener and Colorado state was coming off a huge win the week earlier in one of these preseason games the national televised at Virginia so it was a huge statement. Game it ended up in Colorado State's third win in four years against the buffs. After a really you know in a series that was very very lopsided and still is in favor of the buffs so to have won. Three out of four in. That stretch was a real statement. You know you had See you players. Refer to see us you as their little brother. And you don't WanNa lose your little brother. And so for Bradlee van Pelt to do that and it was instinctive. It was not meant to be some in your face type thing which is literally what it ended up being you know but here he is crossing the goal. Line celebrating the winning touchdown in the U. Defender is hanging onto his face mask for what at least he felt was a little too long. Shouldn't have grabbed the facemask in the first place. No penalty was called but Roderick snead was holding grasping his face mask at the time. That van pelt started the motion to throw spike the football. Adam and I think that's why officials didn't call any penalties. Yeah Time Now. One hundred percent agree. Yeah that's it was wild for sure and Bradlee van Pelt. He just had that he had that charisma to people. Just really got behind it. Just such a fun player and then that that moment's GonNa live on forever. We're we're Kelly when you look at Bradley. Obviously it's a big moment. The Rams were pretty successful football program at that time to where does brand. Bradlee van pelt rank when it comes to greatest rams of all time you know. That's a hard one and I get people all the time. The Colorado State has had plenty of great football players over the years. I don't even know if Bradley Van Pelt the best quarterback and they've got a lot of great quarterback but the thing is is is a character as Persona Bradley impelled is right up there in the in the definite top three or four players ever Colorado state because of what he represented and the success. The Rams had during his time you know he was brash he was he was a little bit cocky. He was the ultimate competitor. He would just find a way to win his stats. Don't compare really when to like you know you look at Garrett Grayson or a Moses Moreno Bradley stats. Don't compare all that weld those guys but what he did and what he accomplished and what the rams did with him leading the way and that Brash. Personality is hard to duplicate and So I think that's why it's it's hard to say. He's not one of the greatest players of all time. Just because of that even if when you start parsing down you know completions touchdown passes rushing yards. Maybe some others look look look as good or better than him so I get that question every time when people are always You Know White Wise Bradley. Then you look at this so and so threw for more yards. It's like yes but look what this guy did. The entirety of what Colorado State Football Program did during his time here and really the statement they made and that win over. Colorado was huge in that regard. The Rams have one amount west title sense that year. And you're right. You have to take into account. What was it achieved at that point in time plus as you said the persona that that is a marketing tool to it gets people Even a little bit outside of the diehard Rams Rams world where people are getting into this team you can look at guys like Garrett Grayson Nick Stevens who recently put up some amazing numbers right for the rams but what their seasons were Garret. Had that really good year with mcelwain of course that last year they were getting better but as time went on. You still don't are they. As do they pack as much of a punch even though the numbers are there. What did those collective seasons look like and again what did the what was the persona like? Yeah I think so I think certainly You know what the rams were. And this isn't sending Lubick payday. You know. This was toward the tail. End of an amazing run in fifteen years under Sonny lubick where they were winning titles going to ball games and and really kind of arrived on the National College football map. This is when you know people that had no idea who colorado state was where it was. Kinda took notice went. Wow look at these these guys in the green and gold play some pretty good football out there you know they were playing those Thursday night. Espn Games and getting that much more. That national attention. The win over Virginia was in you know one of only a handful of games allowed by the NCAA to be played on that opening weekend so there were a lot of eyes on it a lot of attention. They had a win like that. Michigan State around that time to in one of those games There was just a lot of a lot of energy and And and positive energy and excitement and really Colorado State. Football program was elevated to a level so much higher than it had been people. Forget that you know in the late Eighties Colorado State. You know late seventies and eighties. They were in the bottom ten pretty much on a regular basis in sports illustrated's infamous bottom ten. The rams made made several appearances there now. All of a sudden here they are winning games beating nationally ranked opponents on the road in some cases and and getting the national rankings themselves and winning winning conference titles winning Ball Games it was a whole different world and really they haven't gotten back to that level since they came. You know the one season under mcelwain. The ten wins his last year. Twenty fourteen you can say you know. There were a lot of good things. They got a little bit of national attention but still nothing like what they had. When Sonny Lubick Adam going and when Bradlee van pelt was leading those teams quarterback and again just reading your article about the promotion of that of that game that they're getting on the air that's going to play and so I'm going through the numbers and all these quarterbacks and I guess there's a part of me to Kelly that's you know thinking of the. Oh who was that guy? That could finally be that next. Big Time quarterback for this team and I bet you a Lotta Ramsfield this way factor and it's called Hill. I mean he had all of the injuries that were mounting up and then obviously the way things went with coach. Bobo moving on now. He's in South Carolina. But wasn't he one of those guys that ramps going to talk about and say man? That guy had all the tools to be the next big time quarterback. Yeah I think possibly. We certainly thought when he was healthy he was pretty impressive. Unfortunately we never got to see him healthy long enough to really know what he might have accomplished. He could end up having a phenomenal. Your South Carolina this year Grad transfer. I don't know but you know we were sort of deprived of being able to see that. But yes I think ever since Bradlee van Pelt people have wanted. You know who's the next Great Colorado State quarterback 'cause Van Pelt came at the end of a long line of some pretty successful Colorado State quarterbacks Anthony Hill Moses Marino. You Know Caleb You had Some good quarterbacks in that mix Justin Hall and Caleb Caney guys that were pretty talented and everybody was looking for that. Next great quarterback and Certainly you know Garrett Grayson numbers he put up a nominal Nick Stevens the numbers. He put up a phenomenal. But I don't think either one of them ever had they didn't have that combination. The charisma good Bradlee van Pelt and some of those other guys had Anthony Hill. Was that way too. It was pretty brash. Moses Marina was a little bit that way but Bradley was much more. So but these guys you know they were the persona of that football team. And I don't think we've seen that from CS. You quarterback cents on a good successful team calling hill could have been it. You know. Maybe maybe there's somebody in the program now that'll become that guy who knows but I don't see it And that's what you really I think need to get the kind of attention. The rams got then was you need. Not just that great team but you need that player. That kind of personifies the team. Yeah no question about it. So Kelly where's the Harrington they're going to be on? It'll be on their the facebook page to is that correct. See US use facebook page. They did the one with Arizona two weeks ago if you just it's facebook dot com slash. Gs You rams and it should be. I was actually very impressed with the quality of the Arizona. One I was one of the five hundred or so people that one of the five hundred or so computers that was turned in. I should tuned in. I should say for that game I'm guessing a lot of them. Like the one of my household had more than one person watching and It's something they hope to keep doing that. You Know Kyle. Nieves told me they're going to try to do it with some Men's basketball women's basketball volleyball matches iconic once over the next few weeks. But what makes this one so cool? Is they caught up with a chance to talk to Bradley Pill Brian? Ross got the interview on Tuesday and talk to him about it and Bradley. Always been a little bit reclusive sentenced. Csu days he comes back and watching games and hides people don't even know he's there He's apparently been to this. You know campus stadium for Multiple Games but hardly anybody ever sees them. He kinda wears a baseball cap pulled down. He doesn't like to be recognized Adam and he just kind of casually watches and goes away So this is a real chance for RAM FANS. Kinda see Bradley and Gift Bradley to talk about what that era was like. 'cause it was pretty cool for rams fans yeah no doubt about it should be great to to kind of relive some of those moments to. Kelly appreciate always my friend and we'll catch up with you next week. All right sounds good. All right you too men Kelly from Fort Collins Colorado and yeah rallied pell. That was those were my highschool days too. I remember that one of my sisters I have three sisters was up in Fort Collins and actually new Bradlee van Pelt They they hung out sometimes. Yeah and it. Was You know my dad was a die? Hard Bradlee van Pelt and always gave him a hard time because I was like that. He's not GonNa make it in the NFL. Play for the Broncos for what a year right under Jake Plumber but my dad was a diehard Bradlee. Van Pelt Guy and again. He wasn't the most sound quarterback he wasn't the kind of guy that Geir Grayson's putting up the big numbers. I mean he he dominated Grayson I mean maybe dominate is not the right word. Because I don't think it'd be great if they had a really good team surrounding them but Grayson his career with the rams through for nine thousand yards and he did play the played four seasons so full seasons there. Nick Stevens was great. Their numbers are high. But you'RE GONNA be. I would imagine rams fans as time progresses are GONNA remember Bradley Van Pelts. Name more so than gear grace even know. Grayson spent more time in the NFL. All right going to wrap up the first hour of the program power of play. Sports poll question when we can winner. You going to games or are you not.

#296 NFL Week 6 - Predictions vs Reality

"Oh my goodness. Good morning. Good afternoon. Whatever it is for you. I hope you're having a fantastic day. My name is Zach shomler. This is strong opinion Sports. I said I'm going to call this episode 296. It's an unusual episode. I've never done one like this before first of all, I guess I gotta say though that by the time this gets recorded and edited and put out. I'm watching the Giants game a little bit. But this will come out after the Giants and Eagles game on Thursday Night Football. I don't really know who's going to win. The neither team is very good. And I guess that means that technically an episode about NFL week 6 is going to overlap into NFL week 7 if that bothers you hey, no problem. You can skip this episode. Hope you have a great day. We'll see you in June 97 and I appreciate you leaving clicking on this at all. You're awesome. Hope you have a great day if you don't want to watch it or listen to it, no problem, but this is an unusual episode of strong opinion Sports because I want to do Predictions versus reality for NFL week 6 revisit my predictions of actually never done that midweek before I've always I do usually predictions versus reality for my full season long predictions. How's the team do like, I predict the Cardinals go 12 and 4 and then in February or March we do a video. Hey what happened with my prediction versus the reality of what went on? I've never bought a mid-year. And so I honestly cannot tell is this going to be a really long episode is this going to be a really short episode? I have no idea. I hope you enjoy it. I just wanted to do it and I am I talking about not just what I get. Right like sure when I get right is interesting, but I love diving into the things I get wrong and talking about what happened. Like, how was I wrong? Why was I wrong? It's wild an interesting to me for like, for example, I was very very wrong about the Patriots and the Broncos game and I want to I want to dive into that kind of stuff. So it took me a while to watch all the n f o x games that's a lot of football to watch but as a result, we can have a fun time diving into the you know, my predictions and comparing them to the reality of what happened and I just thought I might have a good time. I really hope you enjoy it. I've never done one like this. I normally would probably if this is really really short I apologize if it's really short then maybe next week. I'll try to Fitted in that's just a topic on a bigger episode, but I post I just honestly don't know what to expect your so we'll see how it goes. I want to jump into the Steelers and the Browns. Now going into the Steelers Browns game. I was pretty non-committal. I didn't know what to make of it. You know, there were three games last weekend where I just was like, well, you know what we're going to learn a lot. We'll see what happens. So this was the number one game for me where I said, we're going to learn a lot about the Steelers and who they are as a football team and we're going to learn a lot about the Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield. Who is he as a quarterback? And the question for me was Kim Baker Mayfield the Browns quarterback go toe-to-toe with Big Ben the Steelers quarterback. And in case you don't know the Steelers won this game 38 to 7, and I guess what we really learned for me is that wow, the Steelers are a playoff team. They are not really they rolled through the Browns. I mean the Browns were limited to seventy-five yards rushing a part of that's because they were down when you're losing by a lot you tend to abandon the rain you gotta throw the ball to try to come back but Pittsburgh dominated on both sides of the ball on offense and defense the Steelers. They ran 429 yards, you know, they're running back at 101 yards rushing big band as a quarterback is awesome. And I feel very very good about Pittsburgh this game for me solidified. Yeah. The Steelers are legit. They showed up big time on Sunday and for me in case I'm kind of my big problem with the Browns right now, and I know that and I did a whole topic about the Browns earlier so I don't I don't want to talk too much about this but Baker Mayfield. Yes, you had a rib injury on Sunday. He had a game. Again, he got pulled in the third quarter when they were losing by a lot. But regardless of Baker Mayfield's injury. Decision making has been a problem for Baker Mayfield and really it's the lack of consistency from a decision making stand point where the browns are. I actually compared them to a a dog. I perform at sports car. The Browns have a great head coach calling plays. They got a bunch of Playmakers. They just need a race car driver to keep the car on the track. Just drive it in a straight line and don't crash and for the love of God, please don't make horrible mistakes and Baker continues to make really bad mistake after mistake after mistake Baker Mayfield is becoming the law limiting factor for the Browns offense and that's not good. He's running out of time. And if Baker doesn't play better moving forward at some point, they're going to say we got a pinch you dude. You're just not efficient enough, you're throwing bad interceptions. And you know, the Browns have a new head coach and a new general manager. Neither of which is tied to Baker Mayfield Baker Mayfield was not safe. He might feel safe. You might feel like I was a number one overall pick they're going to like me back. Be with me but that's just not true. And if Baker doesn't deliver the Browns are going to move on Kevin's Advance is going to say we need to find a new quarterback and even me I'm a guy who I'm one of like the last home and beings on planet Earth defending and rooting for and wanting to see Baker Mayfield succeed. A lot of people already bailed long time ago. And even I a person who wage, I see a lot of humanity and Baker Mayfield He's a flawed person. I literally do a podcast with my girlfriend called flawed humans, like I understand when people you are successful and you're a human being and it's hard to be called out and you want to make money and there's a lot of stuff going on. So I I understand Humanity Baker Mayfield, but even I a person who I want to see Baker succeed in life it succeed as a quarterback. I'm losing patience with him. And I know that if I'm losing page is Baker Mayfield, that's a bad sign cuz I feel like I'm one of the last people on planet Earth defending the guy and I guess defending the guys the wrong word, but holding out hope that Baker Mayfield's going to work out. It's a baker Mayfield is kind of figure things out and play better moving forward for the Browns and he is in danger of losing his job in Cleveland. Now the Bears and the Panthers Carolina was three and two going into this game and their fan base kept telling me the Carolina Panthers were a playoff team. We got Teddy Bridgewater a new Coach Joe Brady wage. Oh, yeah the Panthers they're so great. I was skeptical I went well, let's see what's happening. We'll see this kind of prove it game for the Panthers if they're really legit. They're going to beat the Chicago Bears and I saw this game is being an interesting close game that the Bears would win. And honestly this game when exactly like I said, it would the Chicago Bears 123 to 16 K Bridgewater had an interception early on in this game on the very first drive. That one's debatable. It was a contested past kept up in the air we can say that's on his fault. But on the final drive for Carolina said he had a second interception with a minute left in the game. And that was an opportunity to put together a game-winning drive that I've failed because of Teddy Bridgewater that can't happen. That's not good. I liked Eddie. I've been saying for a while that he's very good for now. He's a duck tape quarterback. I thought he kind of proved that on Sunday against the Bears the Bears quarterback. Nick Foles was fine good enough to win. He's not outstanding and it's definitely not always pretty with Nick Foles wage, but his teammates like him. He's the right guy in Chicago this game. I don't have a lot to say here because he came kind of went exactly like I thought it would again the Bears got a close win and the Panthers A team out was skeptical of was not dead. Enough to beat Chicago Chicago's 5 and 1 and Carolinas 3 and 3. That sounds about right to me based on what I saw like going into the game. Now the Dolphins and the Jets this game barely worth talking about I said, you know quote the Miami Dolphins should wreck the New York Jets on Sunday. They did the Dolphins beat the Jets 24 to nothing the Jets quarterback, Sam darnold, didn't it? All he's hurt and the Dolphins are a legit football team. They need to start getting the respect. They deserve Ryan Flores the head coach of Miami is doing some really really good stuff. It's hectic with Ryan Flores did because Brian Flores unlike a lot of he's a Bill Belichick understudy head coach one of the the head coaches from Bill Belichick's coaching tree and a lot of quarterbacks that a lot of assume you a lot of head coaches who coach under Bill Belichick then go do their own thing later. We're talking about Bill O'Brien that guy what's his name? He coached for the Browns and the Jets. He was really bad. I am talking about Matt Patricia a lot of people who coach on our Bill Belichick then go coach on their own as head coach. They tried to be clones of Bill Belichick and the problem is when you're not Bill Belichick, you don't have the cachet to get away with the things bill can do Bill you can't be as cold and as as calculated at the way that Bill Belichick is he's very cold. He's very cut off a little bit with his Players He'll cut you on in a heartbeat that doesn't exactly work unless your Bill Belichick with his resume and the superbowls. He's one. So Brian Flores what I love is he has taken Bill Belichick Years and its formula and the lessons he learned from him and then put his own spin on it and the players in Miami have really really responded to that. They love Brian Flores they fight for him. The best thing he does is expectations are very very clear Bill Belichick. Does that very well Ryan Flores? Does that very very well people in the building like him. I know some people there the duck very highly of him and there are two teams. I strongly believe are headed in the right direction. That's Carolina with Matt rhule and the Miami Dolphins with Brian Flores. He's a great head coach. He deserves to get some credit. Nobody seems to want to give birth Ryan Flores the credit he deserves for what he's doing in Miami and it starts with a head coach. I really like what Carolina has like what Miami has Miami has their quarterback to he's starting in two weeks in NFL Week 8 2 I got in the game against the Jets you had to you know to passing plays was two for two. And got shortly named the starting quarterback right after that. So I am very excited about Miami. I can't believe I talked to that long about them. But this game is a whole was hey, the Jets are often. They just a gigantic mess. And by the way, the Dolphins need to start getting some recognition for what they're doing. A great team is supposed to be the Jets by a lot. That's what they did. They beat the 49ers handily too long ago. You better start paying attention and giving the Dolphins the respect that they deserve and I just want to see that happen for them now the Rams and 49ers game. Going and I felt very strongly that the Rams would win this game. You know, the Forty Niners were dealing with injuries Janeane Garofalo. The 49ers quarterback has not played very well recently and the rack Rams offense to this point Jared Goff Sean McVay. They've been rolling man and I just gotta say I got this one very very wrong. I I thought the Rams one would win by two touchdowns maybe pulling away and in fact the 49ers 124 to 16 and a lot of happened to a lot of stuff went on to cause this to happen number one. Is that the 49ers did a really good job managing their Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. So I don't feel great about Jimmy garoppolo's arm talent and I am still very concerned that we even saw this against Miami Dolphins when Jimmy Garoppolo has to throw downfield and wind blowing about vertically. I don't know that he can but the 49ers did not ask a lot of them against L A that a Time screen passes through the ball behind the line of scrimmage a lot and the 49ers head coach. Kyle Shanahan deserves. A lot of credit. The Forty Niners are really banged up have a lot of injuries and they still found a way to beat the Rams. That's a big deal the Rams offense. I guess the Rams defense, excuse me. LS defense never forced Jimmy Garoppolo have to throw the ball vertically down field. And because the Rams also didn't get a single cycle game part of that is because the Forty Niners were getting very quickly thrown a lot of screens. They didn't have a sack all day. Aaron Donald had no sacks the Rams that did not have a single sack the entire game that speaks to the 49ers game plan that also speaks to the fact Rams did never Force Jimmy G to hold on the ball or work to his fourth or fifth reading the progression. And so I was surprised about that. I was also very very surprised that page Jared Goff the Rams quarterbacks struggled the way he did Cooper kupp that kind of the security blanket for Jared Goff was targeted nine times in this game. He only had three catches for 11 yards. That's very very surprising because Not once not twice multiple times Cooper kupp was open vertically or downfield and Jared Goff simply missed him and I go how was that possible your favorite receiver. Like I you know, it's just you couldn't connect with downfield multiple times. And that's I just was very surprised. How often Jared Goff missed Cooper kupp open downfield and it's also worth noting that 49ers cornerback. Will Mosley was back from an injury. He played great. He made a big impact on the game. And I guess the final thing I want to say about the 49ers is that despite the fact that they put together really good game plan. They found a way to win against the Rams. I thought the guy that deserves the most credit here was Kyle Shanahan the head coach of the 49ers like finding a way to win despite all the problems on your roster and the injuries going off a big deal, but I am still very very skeptical Jimmy Garoppolo the 49ers quarterback because he struggles to throw the ball vertically when he's forced to so, I don't know that wage. At some point the 49ers going to play defense. It takes away the running game and limits screens and you know sort stuff underneath and when you make Jimmy Garoppolo have to throw to his fourth or fifth or maybe in third read that's going to be a problem for the 49ers and I foresee that being an issue later down the road now the page rates and the Bronco. This is another game. I was very very wrong about and I was certain that been doing a patriot certain win this football game. I was nervous for the Broncos Young quarterback Drew lock. I kept having a vision of Sam darnold against the Patriots. Remember that game where Sam darnold was called seeing ghosts and I thought man A Young quarterback against this Patriots defense that feels like a recipe for disaster. Now the Broncos beat the Patriots 18 to 12. I was dead wrong here. Brandon McManus hit six field goals. What I love to hear was the Broncos game plan on offense. They were all attack attack attack. They kept attacking vertically and whether I don't know I felt like Drew lock has a lot on the table to be desired. But what I really loved that he was not afraid. He kept launching deep ball after deep ball going after the page was secondary and you just do not see that very often from a Young quarterback playing against doing a Patriots. And normally when that happens you see a lot of interceptions really bad problems. He kept throwing vertically throw after throw. There was a Broncos 3rd and 21 play where Drew lock through a long 35,000 bomb down the right sideline at 10 Patrick and I went. Oh, wow, this is just not at all how I thought the game was going to go and I know Denver wants a lot of credit here. And we'll talk about Denver and kind of the credit they deserve but I also got to say that this is honestly the worst game I've ever seen New England play in my entire life watching them at least in the Bill Belichick era where I thought it was sloppy. They were awful. I blame covid-19. They haven't practiced very much. They looked disorganized their game plan was very weird like kind of thrown together now cam did have a huge run off when you're not very well prepared. It kind of comes down to who has better athletes. The Broncos definitely do have better athletes and I thought cam for his credit can't did what he could he had this long run where it looked like nobody watching tackle him and I just had to start I went man. It's really disappointing that we're never ever going to see Cam Newton play in the same backfield as Derrick Henry if someone ever said hey Zach, you know Genie in a Bottle you get to pick anything for the NFL. What would you want to see? I actually think the thing I'd most want to see just from a it'd be fun and interesting to watch would be Cam Newton running the zone-read wage. Derrick Henry, nobody would want to tackle anybody on defense maybe like yeah, I don't want to touch Cam Newton now don't wanna get run over by Derrick Henry. So I just think that'd be really fun to watch. Now the page towards had a chance to win this football game Drew lock through back-to-back interceptions down the stretch in this game. And so the Patriots out the ball First and Ten three minutes to go down 6 and they couldn't finish Drive. I mean Camden took a sack that was kind of the the nail in the coffin they were in fourth and long and they couldn't finish the drive. This was an ugly game. Both teams were depleted because of covid-19 cuz of injuries, but Denver one, I mean Denver one in a weird way. It's not very often. You have a team score 18 points with six field goals. It's just kind of an a showing of bad football Drew lock wasn't perfect. Either do like a 250 is just kind of was I like I thought what my favorite thing about Drew lock was not that he was incredibly efficient or that he really shredded the Patriots when I was a confidence. He was just not afraid at all of the Patriots defense. He kept recognizing matchups doing a great job whether he succeeded or not throwing completions. He was just attacking vertically and I really liked that attitude and I think as time goes on and Drew lock gets better and the people around him get healthy and Courtland Sutton comes back and KJ hamler comes back and Noah Fant comes back and he's got two great running backs off. I am telling people drew lock is going to be a terrifying Force when he figures things out and the team around him is at 100% and really healthy. The Broncos are going to be a problem next year because Drew lock I've never seen a Young quarterback stand up to the Patriots the way Drew lock did I was totally wrong about this game Denver one, and it was fun and exciting to watch for me. Now the Ravens and the Eagles I said that the Ravens would win this game very easily. They have a better roster not to mention that Carson Wentz Eagles quarterback had been really struggling with I can get them depressingly inconsistent to that point in the year with the Ravens did win. They 132 28, but the Ravens did not win as easily as I expected them to do more was up Seventeen to nothing at halftime and it's worth noting that the Eagles for six drives. They had five three-and-outs and a fumble at the Eagles did not start this game well at all, but I want to give credit to cash and credit to Carson Wentz because they thought back man the Eagles were in this game. It was closed. It was interesting. It was in tents and I really want to give them credit man the Eagles thought all the way back now. Travis fogam is a name you might not have heard of he is a former sixth-round pick. He had another good game for Philadelphia. I'm starting to go. Yeah, Travis told him I wasn't sure if she got let's wait and see I've never heard of them before I want to do some research Travis full game. Looks like the real deal. He might be the most exciting Eagles receiver. He had six catches on Sunday seventy-five yards and another touchdown and it's kind of sad that Travis full of former sixth-round pick is the most exciting receiver for Philadelphia instead of you know, their top picks recently. They had you know off JJ arcega-whiteside. They had Jalen reagor were not I'm not really excited about either one of those guys so far this year. The guy am excited about is Travis fogam, that's weird and sad and honestly incredibly disappointing when it comes down to the pics the Eagles have made recently at receiver. I was excited. Why is Jalen reagor? He's been injured a lot and even when he wasn't injured, he's been like a like kind of inconsistency. So I also want to say that down Seventeen to nothing Philadelphia made a decision. I didn't agree with they on fourth-and-one at the 20 yard-line Doug Peterson decided to go for it on fourth-and-one rather than kick the easy field goal. And there were that moment along with a couple other moments of kind of weird what I would call mismanaged it where I thought you know, first of all the the Eagles left three points on the board there that would really help them know would have gave them the lead now. We I think also the Ravens would have played things differently if he had three more points in the board. Maybe they would have called different plays down the stretch, but regardless, I just feel like Doug Peterson has been mismanaging a couple of moments so far this year and I go he's won a Superbowl he gets the benefit of the doubt for sure, but I'm not that impressed with Doug Peterson so far this year in 2020. Now the Ravens won sure. Congratulations Baltimore well done for you, but they did not As easily as I thought it was kind of an ugly game for them. And my number one takeaway for the Baltimore Ravens is that this team needs to work on the scramble drill down Lamar Jackson is outside of the pocket extending a play. His receivers are stagnant. They're just not really moving. They're not really looking for the ball very much. They need to come back for the ball. They need to start working on. Hey, if the more rolls right you gotta get rolling to the right sideline one of them vertical when he comes back when he goes to the sideline. They need to have these rules figured out and have that start happen because multiple times have watched the Ravens their receivers to start doing nothing as long as extending a plane rolling to the right or left and I just Baltimore needs to work on The Scrambled will also I'm not that impressed with Lamar Jackson so far this year throwing the football. He looks great running. He was great again against Philadelphia got a long touchdown on but throwing the ball, he still been incredibly inconsistent. That's disappointing and I really expected more from the mar this year. I thought I thought he's going to take another step forward throwing the football. I just haven't seen it so far this year from from the large Axe and and I maybe we will as time goes on but so far. I've been kind of like a Lamar. I want to see more I want to see more consistency should just not from our Jackson. Now the Colts and the Bengals. Oh my gosh, I was torn about this game. I said that on paper the Colt should win this game easily, but the problem is their quarterback Philip Rivers never makes things easy and Joe burrow a young phenomenal upcoming quarterback against the Colts defense is going to be a surprisingly interesting matchup. Now, here's what happened the Colts won the game 31-27, but I was actually like I said, they were surprisingly interesting the Bengals had a 21 to nothing lead early on in this game. They were helped out by a the Colts fumbled on their first drive like things went really really well for the for the Bangles. But like I say man, I am all in on the Bengals Young quarterback, Joe burrow. He looks really really good. And for me what I like is and he had a I guess it's just the elephant in the room. So Joe burrow had one really bad costly mistake in this game. He had an interception on the final play, I guess on the final drive with like forty six seconds left that house kind of ruined the Bengals come back where they the Bengals had an opportunity to go down the field when the game Joe burrow did not see the backside safety. The guy came got an interception Joe Pearl had that one back a all game and that's it's frustrating when you say Young quarterback do that in that moment. But I also gotta say that Joe burrow. Other than that one moment. His attention to detail was incredible. I just I keep going. Oh my God, he's recognizing the recognizing when Blitz is coming is recognizing covers is really well. If you Blitz and leave one on one coverage outside, he'll find that it along towards home. And I went dang that's a really great read and I gotta say Joe burrow is the best Young quarterback in the NFL. Yeah, I addressed the interception that was frustrating. But other than that man, he looks phenomenal. He leapfrogged every other Young quarterback in the NFL. I would take Joe burrow over Kyler Murray Lamar Jackson Josh Allen everybody Jonesboro. He's making great decisions making veteran level read seeing the field incredibly. Well, he's extending the play well and most importantly is that Joe burrow is on a team that really is not as good as players like the more Jackson's got a great roster of Baltimore and Kyler Murray has incredible receivers like moss asked DeAndre Hopkins and Josh Allen's got this great defense in a really good team around in the buffalo. Joe burrow has the Cincinnati Bengals a team. That was awful. They earned the number one overall pick last year and Joe burrow is elevating the team around it from his attitude from his leadership from his attention to detail his play literally on the field Joe burrow is the best Young quarterback in the NFL and I will say that and I will not back down I will die on that Hill Joe Burrows phenomenal Now by halftime things did even out the Colts were only losing by three points the Bengals had a 24-21 lead the Colts fought back. And so and you're like were you talking about Joe burrow the Colts? Yeah. We're still talking about the Colts Bengals game. Philip Rivers had a bad interception as he always does but it still gotta say that this was the best game of ever seen Philip Rivers play in a Colts uniform the cold spot back home. So I thought that it was disappointing the Bengals had an opportunity missed a field goal, which would have been the go-ahead field goal. But he gotta give the coast a lot of credit Philip Rivers fought back. He really did. A great job leading his team back to Victory and I just I I was fired up. Yeah Philip Rivers great job. I thought that the early really big lead by the bank was less about the Colts being bad and more about the Bengals getting a couple early Brakes Plus Joe burrow making some really good plays. So I don't think it's an indictment against the Colts and what's really cool is that Indianapolis showed a lot of adversity and they fought back and finally finally finally I watched the Colts game and what yeah, Philip Rivers looks really good like the way I thought he would play all year. So maybe this is the start of something really really good Philip Rivers moving forward where he's going to LeapFrog off of this moment and play phenomenal the rest of the year. I don't know but I think it's possible Philip Rivers, you know, use this game as a stepping stone to play really good the rest of the year. Now the Giants and Washington, I thought Washington was going to win this game. I believe Kyle and their quarterback was going to play a really clean game and I thought that Washington was going to have a number of sacks on the Giants quarterback Daniel Jones. I was flat-out wrong about this game just wrong. There's nothing both things that are going to happen for Washington failed the Giants 1-22-19 the Giants got their first one of the year. I was happy for them and Kyle Allen made some good plays for Washington home, but he also had to really costly turnovers turnovers that cannot happen turnovers that I am sure head coach Ron Rivera looked at it went. You can't throw that interception or you can't fumble that ball. You got to get rid of it and throw the ball away. So there are little things that Kyle Island even a kylin the quote. I think the best quarterback for Washington needs to do better off and the game came down to it was really fun to watch. It came down to a two point conversion for Washington with literally seconds left in the game. They did not get at the Giants won. But I think most surprising this game was that Washington only had one sack the entire game the the team in Washington and I I wish that a name. I hate calling them Washington. They have five first-round picks on defensive line. They have a lot of Talent on their defense of line and I was like man Chase young is gonna go off. And it didn't happen Daniel Jones got sacked one time on Sunday. That's just I thought that man washing it didn't show up the way I thought they would change defense Daniel Jones is I don't know. I I need to watch the Thursday night game and watch that game that games happening in a couple of minutes, but I I'm excited to watch the Giants. I think Daniel Jones. I don't know I did a whole topic about it, but I was really surprised at Washington did not have a quarterback play a clean game and they did not get only they only got one sack of Daniel Jones the entire game. That's a surprise to me. And that is how the Giants got their first win. Now the Falcons and the Vikings this was an ugly game. There's two bad teams the Vikings. I thought it had a better roster going in but the Falcons remember the Falcons coach Dan Quinn was fired and I said maybe Atlanta will feel liberated and maybe Atlanta will be out to prove that he was the coaches fault not our fault. The players two players are good. Our coach was a problem and the Falcons won this game 4223. Now they are one and five. It was just an ugly not a great game, but this felt like the low point for Minnesota so far this year where their defense got shredded by Atlanta and not remember Mike Zimmer the head coach of the Vikings is supposed to be a defensive-minded coach. They got embarrassed and Kirk Cousins was also incredibly embarrassing. He was awful and I know that the statistics won't show Kirk Cousins like yeah, he got three touchdowns, but he did it in garbage time down by a bunch and when it mattered most in the first half Kirk Cousins had three interceptions, he played really badly. And the stats are misleading but Kirk was terrible in this game. This was the low point for the Kirk Cousins era in Minnesota there one in five. The Vikings are off the coach might get fired. I think Kirk Cousins might get I mean, they can't he's got a contract. I don't know what to do there. It's a guaranteed contract. So the Vikings are in trouble and I don't know that they have the answers to solve their problems. Unless they get a new head coach who's just really a genius on offense. I don't know what they're going to do. So I the Vikings are in really really big trouble after losing this game to Atlanta. Now the Texans and the Titans I felt like the bills kind of got a they got handed a victory two weeks ago against Buffalo where page one of the Titans got handed a victory by Buffalo two weeks ago. If you watch that tightens Bills game on that Tuesday night the bills were terrible and I thought after that game people went. Oh my gosh, the Tennessee Titans Georgia void the Buffalo Bills and I go did you watch the game? Like, yeah, the stats were were interesting like the numbers like the final score. Wow, the Titans destroyed the bills but actually went kind of like I watch the game. Tennessee got break after break after break and I just was not all in on the Titans as dominant Juggernaut team. So I believe in this game against Houston that Tennessee was going to win the game, but it's going to be closed and was going to be interesting and competitive and so I'm not going to act like some genius here because this game went to overtime so really either team could one but I did get it right where I said it was going to be closed down buttons were going to win the Titans beat the Texans 40 to 2:36 in overtime and took over time to figure out the winner of this game Derrick Henry had 212 yards rushing for telling see the tight the Houston Texans quarterback. DeShaun Watson was outstanding though. He was twenty-eight for 37 passing 335 yards for touchdowns off and yet Tennessee is a playoff team. I think they look really really good. I think what's most cool about The Titans is the way that they have found ways to overcome a lot of adversity this year. But Tennessee is not some Juggernaut. They're not some. Oh my gosh, Tennessee. They're destroying playoff teams. I don't know. I was watching this game literally in my head thinking I can't wait to watch the Titans play against the Pittsburgh Steelers a team that plays really really good defense. Tennessee is good running game against the Steelers really good run defense would be really interesting to look at the schedule and oh my gosh. Guess what and if a week 7 this upcoming Sunday, we're going to see Tennessee play against Pittsburgh will see the Titans versus the Steelers going to be really fun really interesting and that's a game that I feel like it's a it's a playoff game in the making they might play once a week 7 and then again in the playoffs. So keep your eye on that game Steelers tight on Sunday. I the match up up front is going to be really interesting do the Steelers dominate up front on defense or do the Titans run the ball. Well, or does the answer somewhere light in the middle? I don't know but I am not all in on tendency the way a lot of other people are and I thought that this tendency Texans game kind of prove that to some degree. Now the Jaguars and the Lions I said going and I was worried about the Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew. And I was right to some degree the Lions won this game 34 to 16. Gardner Minshew had a really bad interception throwing deep down the left sideline to DJ Chark where the ball hung in the air too long, and the question was Gardner Minshew right now. His arm talent. I watch that interception a DJ Chark. Can I went you know what Trevor Lawrence would make that throw? And garden of our two turnovers had a fumble had an interception the lions are a solid and that football team that if you give them opportunities they're going to beat you. And for me the store is a gardener had a number of mrs. That you just cannot miss. He had to throw where he he did get his he threw but he had a DJ Chark open in the end zone. And again, he missed the throw into the end zone and you just can't miss those throws and so gardeners gotta play better or else he's going to get himself replaced in Jacksonville. And so again decision-making is not the problem for God to make sure the problem is arm Talent. He's missing throws that you just like the accuracy and the verdict the vertical ability to throw the football. It's got to be better and I don't know if that's the thing you can fix mid-year so long. I am afraid that if the Jaguars get in fact, I know this for a fact if the Jaguars have a high enough draft pick where they can replace starter men shoe. They're going to do it. And that's that's this game confirms that for me. I went yeah Gardner. I love him. He's as great do great personality. We actually went to college together and not like we weren't in class together, but I was the moment when he was at Washington State. I was on the sidelines for those games. It was really fun. I feel it's emotional connection and Gardner Minshew, but unfortunately, he's not justifying his spot on the roster right now, and I think he's good at a solid. He's a definitely a good backup of nothing else, but I think gardeners gotta play better down the road if he wants to keep his job in Jacksonville, and I guess there's a feeling of complacency with Jacksonville where if they have a chance a shot at Trevor Lawrence, they're going to take it. If not, they're fine with governments you for now, but Gardner Minshew is unfortunately proving that he's done a rather than the long-term answer and I just wanted to see more to wanted to see better. From Gardner Minshew this year. Now the Packers and the Buccaneers Tom Brady vs. Aaron Rodgers. Oh my goodness. I was excited for this game. And I was expecting this great Phenom game to play off teams new trading blows. Oh my gosh. It's going to be fun and I was even confident that the Packers were going to win this game. I went man the Packers had the bye week to prepare off Packers at two weeks to think about and strategize for this game. And guess what the Buccaneers dominated the Buccaneers won this game thirty eight to ten. Are you who I just did not see that telling I was shocked. So the Tom Brady Rob Gronkowski connection was on full display. They looked the same way. They did in New England a couple of years ago, and I was shocked at how bad Aaron Rodgers the Packers quarterback played. He had two interceptions. You should have had three Antoine Winfield Jr. Dropped a pic later in the game a road. Also missed Mercedes Lewis wide open on a second and ten where there's no jobs and mm Mercedes Lewis was literally wide open over the middle. I've never seen Aaron Rodgers miss the guy wide open like that almost like it's almost like Aaron Rodgers was just overthinking throw and not content or something was down there. He also wants lost track of the play clock and took a delay-of-game penalty. Aaron Rodgers was not as typical self in this game and it's really the worst of ever seeing Aaron Rodgers play in a football game. And I guess to take away from this game is that we learn what the Buccaneers are capable of When they play penalty-free football, so the Buccaneers have their problem all year has been yeah, they're really good at times. They play good defense. They've got exciting receivers. They got Tom Brady, but they're not disciplined. They really really against the Bears for example that a ton of penalties and costs themselves multiple times where I said this team is not good enough to win the Superbowl and it's the problem is discipline. So big key in this game. The Buccaneers defense is awesome. Tom Brady's the star the defense deserves the credit here and there that the defense of the the Buccaneers what really needs the eyeballs did the key to their Victory but another key to the victories, they gotta be disciplined when they're disciplined. Oh my gosh, the Buccaneers look like a Super Bowl team that zero penalties and Sunday. That's a big deal. And I also I don't think we're ever going to be another. Green Bay Packers game where they might lose again that badly they lost really badly to the 49ers last year. But I don't think we're ever going to see another Packers game where Aaron Rodgers plays quite that badly ever again in your lifetime unless he's like forty eight years old and hobbled and can barely run and it's just falling apart mentally and emotionally and everything. So I just I thought it was uncharacteristically bad game for Aaron Rodgers and kind of the ceiling for the Buccaneers where they played an incredibly almost mistake-free football game, which when you do that they're going to win by a lot of points and the Buccaneers did on Sunday now the Cardinals and the Dallas Cowboys game was a home game for Dallas technically in Arlington, Texas. I was right about this game. I have said that the Cowboys were going to get blown out by the Arizona Cardinals. I've been saying that since my NFL prediction episode for the Cardinals where I said they were going to 12 and 4. I've been saying this since September or even August Andy Dalton the Dallas Cowboys quarterback, you know the replacement for Dak Prescott had two interceptions Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys running back had back-to-back fumbles that led to a two-car touchdowns. So the Cardinals won the game 38 to 10:00 and might take away here is that I thought the Cardinals didn't even play that great of a football game. The Cowboys are just awful. Defense is terrible. They need a defensive tackle badly. They need a new safety the Cardinals ran for 261 yards. You remember cuz Kingsbury the Cardinals coach runs a court Air Raid Offense. So the fact that you gave up two hundred over 250 yards rushing to Arizona. The Cowboys defense is a mess. They're awful. They're terrible. They need help. There are big problem. And I just this is a loss. I saw I saw this in the works for a long long time with the Cowboys and thought this was rather obvious for a long long time time now. The final game want to talk about and by the way, there was no Thursday night football game. So there last week in week six. So totally find their the Thursday night game was supposed to be Kansas City and buffalo. So let's talk about that game happened on Monday instead the Chiefs and the bills. My theory was that Kansas City was going to pull away in this game and you know taking a pull away late and I wanted a hyper-competitive football game where the bills and the Chiefs kind of came down to the final play that did not happen, Kansas City 126 to 17. And I let the story here. Was it Kansas City with a bunch of replacement kind of a lot of shuffling around on the offensive line, you know a bunch of backups basically three players, but we're not playing where they normally would play on the Kansas City offensive line in spite of that. The Chiefs offensive line dominated up front like the bills got embarrassed physically Clyde edwards-helaire the running back for Kansas City ran for a hundred and sixty-one yards that cannot happen with Patrick Mahomes was incredibly efficient and I guess really might take away here is that I want to see Buffalo be willing to commit to the running game a little bit more. They they keep going away from the running game. And I mean they had multiple towns where three-and-outs where Buffalo would throw the ball, you know, first and 10-second and 10/3 and 10 three incompletions then punt the ball weights like run the football. You got a good call back. What are you doing? I don't understand and so the bills have been sloppy now two weeks in a row. They've lost two games in a row as a result of that. Buffalo has got a clean things up this feels like the year. Hello. We're gonna win their division. They're going to overtake the Patriots. Buffalo plays the Jets this weekend in two weeks. They play the New England Patriots and buffalo has got a clean things up if they want to achieve their goals later on this year. No guys, that's all I have. That is my entire. So my my counter says 49 minutes and 40 seconds. It'll probably be about 45 minutes or something like that. I had to cut out a couple of moments early on I also did do the intro like three times for whatever reason I just was like really nervous for this episode. I hope you enjoyed it though. I really I think it is. Maybe worthy of being its own stand-alone episode the predictions versus reality week-to-week if it makes sense, I'll do it next week to I think it'd be really fun. The NFL is kind of a mess right now. We're Coba. Causing teams to cancel practice teams are playing way more messy than I've ever seen before because there's not a lot of preparation going on. It feels like it feels like teams are it's one thing in a zoo may need to talk about this is our game plan. But if you aren't wrapping things out you can draw something up and if you draw something up that's a great idea. But if you don't do a walk-through and run through it a couple of times full speed. It may be a problem. So, I don't know. I think the NFL is on a weird spot right now, and I don't see a way to fix it. Cuz it covid-19 doing the best you can week-to-week and it's a 2020 is a crazy weird here in the NFL now. I am excited to watch the Giants and Eagles right after this and I just I hope you're doing well. I hope you enjoyed that. I've never done a prediction versus reality for a mid-season week of them ever before but it was fun. I enjoyed it. Hope you did too. Hope you have a great day. That's all I have but bam we are done.

Freedom is at stake. It's important followed by a new episode of monday at nine. Eight central on cbs. Today's episode is brought to you by clorox when it counts. Trust clorox the same way.

It's important to share with loved ones and the public in general how they can give the most care for their loved ones especially during times like these. I mean with the pandemic going on with kobe. Going on it's just great to be extra sanitary with all the items that are around you caring for others and you know just wiping down the door handle after. Use the bathroom or wiping shadow important. This toilet the toilet handle. Don't toilet handle so remember. When accounts trust clorox are couple of things from our opening segment. I want to clear up. A lot of people on twitter. Pointing out of the manual quickly was an end of first round. Pick not a second round. Pick and i said he was a second round ellison episode. I never said he was the second round pick city was in the first round pick said it was a second round pick. Didn't say that. Actually i did say that. I screwed up. He was in the first round. Pick made that mistake so there you go correct that no thing. Couple of trevor's that we threw out there actually traded up to get him annual quickly. The what was the the other trevor's that we had the that you threw out there. You gave me two famous. Trevor's there and you down your god. That was your whole your whole point. Here was the say the andes two more. Trevor's i did i did. I had i got trevor rees river reason. That's right trevor. Howard okay there. One more trevor berbick trevor. Simian was the trevor simian. So the point still holds. Trevor lawrence could be the most famous river. Ever everything works out with in the history of the human race. So i did i did. I did put in famous people named boomer. I came up first and for a couple of people on twitter. That say that. Chris berman is more famous than boomer sizing. Get out of town please. That's the stf you on that one hashtag. You could say that. I don't i don't care we should. I mean you're looking up your name on every list. I think you do. I just wanted to say. I just to see where it landed. You know. you never know. Chris berman's not more famous than palmer science in and by the way you names boomer assize and his name is boomer burman they just call him boomer. Stupid chris lopresti is here yes. He's got an update he's not stupid. No he's not. I listened to the clip the earning mcnuggets cliffs and see low had like a sneaky like funny thing in there when he said that ernie mcchicken was gonna show up but als door and say hey how ernie mcnuggets. In the way you said it. I just pick. I could see it in my mind. Earning make chugging shaking hand yesterday so see low is back. I believe we get jerry back tomorrow. Correct yes we have another day of ceelo. What's going on chris. I forgot to ask our on the warm up. Show terrible job. I me mr mc chugging stopped by to say hello yesterday i've not met Mr mac is yeah that's disappointing. I was hoping that there would've been some sort of grand moment between the two of you yesterday. Perhaps that's still to come. Are you guys covered the mets signing quite a bit there in the open trevor. Jeez god reliever. Trevor may solid numbers. The last few years a two year deal now reportedly worth fifteen million today is also the day for teams to ten. Contracts unsigned players. Stephen matt's certainly the name to keep an eye on as far as the mets. Go all right. Well this wednesday. Nfl matinee is still on the ravens. Flew to pittsburgh last night to face the steelers today at three forty despite to more positive coronavirus test before departing safety. Gino's stone is rookie seventh. Rounder that's played in a couple of games for this year and equipment manager also on the staff reportedly came back positive baltimore yesterday. Activating skies were on the plane. No they were not they got those results before they left. And then i guess people were saying well if they're still having positives is really all that smart to get on the plane and go but they did. You know so. I saw a couple of different theories on this. I guess one was that the ravens thought that these guys were presumptive positives already. Yes the league. Did as well shock. No and then there was the other side of the people that are like she should never played. It never happened. you never know. They were saying. Look to cancel the game so to me. It seemed like that this wasn't a surprise that these two guys all right. So don understand what happened in denver drew lock never got covid. Nineteen neither did the other guy right but they were around. Drift jeff driscoll quarterback who did have it and contact tracing says look we gotta be careful and we have to have a certain amount of time before we let these guys actually back on the field test us test right exactly so and as drew locks mother unbelievable what out there and i love this. W know it's so twenty twenty right. It's his mom came out and just came to his defense. Mommy mommy can do defense and and made a very good point like what. My son doesn't have covid. Nineteen and the only reason that they put themselves in this position was because as a group they wanted to study more tape on the upcoming opponent and they wanted to put extra time and effort into it and they made they made a mistake. And i guess you know in her world her baby. Her babies being criticized on social media by the head coach. By the way. It's i'm sure it's also coming from the fans and everybody else. And she says she wants an investigation on guys who are actually testing positive. And what are they doing away once. She's calling for an investor wanted investigation. Yes the bottom of her baby. Her baby was just trying to get better down trying to be better next time. Mom call your friend and bitch to her about it. Don't go to twitter because it just looks bad. Does you know no fat listen. You don't win that battle you don't. I know you don't win that about. Here's one thing i will. i will always always Backup and that's mom protecting her kids will put yourself out. There and makes wife is a different story. You know another family member brothers at different story but when a mom is going all in protect her turkey. I don't you can protect your kid without going dude headfirst into the cesspool of social media idaho. So you've been a dad for two years now. Yeah it's going to be three notice but you've been to that for two years You understand the unconditional love. That comes along with being the dad of sabrina. The greatest thing in the world. Of course so you will do everything in your power to protect her and make sure everything goes well for her in her life and you'll be involved in all that other stuff right. Yeah but i also tell her when she gets that age that this social media thing is a battle that you don't win and there's no point in even engaged. Yeah but the truman. At mom's house wanted to tell her i would say if i know the truth. And you know the truth and the people that you care about. Know the truth then ted. Four six seven two nine five eight six. Who called you. Ah jackass doesn't matter what that would be my lesson as poppy till sabrina obvious telling you though moms always win the argument. I don't care what you say and if you don't do. They're going to protect their drew. Lock as a young men making millions of dollars. I understand but in her eyes. That's the baby. She birth man. I go to protect him no matter what. Just don't think it's smart. Sorry that's just the way it is. Yeah i just don't think it's smart. Well look i. I'm telling you dad's a little bit different. We'll let them linger a little bit. We'll let them hurt a little bit. I'm just being general here. Thanks very much thank. Go to boomers point. My mother just texted me boomer. I'll how i love that man. Because he's sticking up for the moms say all right but what would you. Do you feel if your mom defended right. And that's what i wanna know. Now ask this. Do we think she ran this by drew. There's no chance right. There's no way he would have played. She's a teacher. I'm very but there's no way he would have okayed this. She's not like she went to him and said. Hey here's what. I want to put out there and says yeah go for it no way right now in my point is yeah you defend your kid no matter what. I'm not disagreeing with that. I'm just saying that when you go to twitter. You're not open. You can't win that. I not hyper. You're totally understand. It and i had no problem with it. I i don't know maybe it's my i. I don't want to call it a stereotype. But i just think it's my my way of thinking a way to stereotype all the mothers back grown up all right so you know that the news all right all right. I'm just telling you you can't fight you fight moms. Every mom feels the same way. Yeah that's the thing. I'm not saying. I reminded that i agree with that sentiment. I one hundred percent loves you. I know that that same. But it's like one of with france esa was your mom like all like all up now. Actually we didn't really talk about it. No come on no. We didn't really talk about the addis mother effort. I'm not listen. I know that. But i know that already see the thing for me. I know how the people in my inner circle feel about me. I don't need them to go. And try to play whack a mole on twitter. I is a bad idea. It just is obviously your mom's not on twitter right if she were and she saw some of the unkind comments. Some have thrown your way. I would tell her. Don't even look at the stay deriding a quilt group. And don't get involved in this right. I saw hit tell like yes. You can no no no because an. Nfl quarterback is so high profile and so many people are coming atom. Okay in so many ways. I mean look at what happened and mark eastbound as scaling. Okay after very fumbles. The ball gets. Indianapolis is receiving death threats. And but those weren't real they're not real. I'm sorry about this like this whole death threat thing. It's not. Did the fbi investigate those death threats or was it. Just some schmuck. Kill you if you drop the ball. Again he goes. I got people wanting to kill me. I'm sorry this is not real. It's this death threats in his death threats. There's twitter death threats in israel. Death there the fbi is busy doing okay death. But i'm sorry it's not a it's not gonna say the mob by bump say valdes scantling mama's and i know but i'm assuming that she probably had a few choice words to say to some people i yeah i just when you hair that deeply about the opinions. That really don't matter. That's a problem here. Mothers but cheeks hanging out. Okay come on al conversation here. Yeah you just had to ruin with that all right. Well drew lock. We'll be back at practice about the way. Did you catch. Doug peterson zoom call yesterday. So after of course reviewing the eagles performance against the seahawks the carson wentz is going to remain the starter and peterson's going to keep calling the plays but the takeaway here was because nfl facilities were closed yesterday. He did his zoom press conference from his home office and very prominently displayed. Just over his right shoulder was the lombardi. Trophy is which. I'm was not asking us sending a message. That's right that's right. Doug peterson bomb off. My son The giants get back to work today. We'll see about the status of january jones in the hamstring strain whether it's dj or colt. Mccoy logan ryan in the defence have to get themselves ready for russell wilson and the seahawks is. We've got to go out and put out the fires so four firefighters no matter over the turnover. If someone got hurt on offense we had saquon barkley out this year. We gotta go play great defense. It's been a vastly improved unit. So is the special teams for the most part but not so much last week against the bengals. Here's ryan on joe. Judge moved during this week's special teams film review efforts and members fers and stuff and you know and That's it. I mean didn't didn't do too great in that but have made great plays all year long this this joe judge is a disciple of the great bill parcells. No doubt i'm telling you. He is coming right off at tree and he is running the running. The team just like ballot check runs the team up there new england just like sabin runs a team down there in atlanta alabama. And the same way that bill parcells random team ryan with moose and maggie are here on the fan yesterday. Giants also putting Starting outside linebacker. Kyle fat girl on. I r with a calf injury. So who missed the next three games against teams with winning records leaves them short handed at a key spot. They also brought in quarterback joe webb for a workout. He knows dave gettleman from his time with the panthers. Let's do little. Nba training camps open underway media day. Yesterday the knicks left off the christmas day schedule. The nets will visit the celtics. Obviously there'll be a lot of is on kevin durant this year making his much anticipated brooklyn debut durant with the media yesterday wanted no part of being connected to any rumors connecting james harden to the nets. Were you making these stories up. That mean james talked about it. is that a workout. Like oh that came from changes the friend of mine but i let the front office handle all of that stuff because of those rumor cast somewhere probably. Yeah because james harden just out of nowhere trade me to the nets never had a conversation with kevin durant please like they might not have happened at a workout and it might have been a text message or something but of course they talked to you realize how long kevin durant has not played in a professional basketball. It'd be close to two years right. Seventeen months i mean he was. He was in close to two years. It was in the finals. Earning ended up tearing. But everything's been pushed back as well because you're seventeen months okay so year and a half by the time they tip off on opening day was just wanted to shame. Ceelo i guess because we're in december what would you have been by. The way would not have been anywhere near a round number of one or two years. Because i know it was. The finals are probably would have said. I don't know sixteen seventeen months interesting. Still thought impoundment was fine. That's fine is your mom upset that he's she's gonna she's going to tweet about it in about five minutes when i'm done with the update here. Geo here's your boy. Sean marks because of the rumors other players on the nets roster have been mentioned as possibly going other way going to other team. So he's got to deal with that as part of his name's costly going to be floated out in the media and there's no way or no way around it really but you just have to be honest with them and say look. This is what's happening. This is what's not happening. Let me play a little nicks before. I go tom. Tobacco pleased with what he has seen from. Obi top and in the very early going took it to another level phasing. Elise young guy be coming into defensively. He's got to learn grow as most young guys to overall outlook for this team. This season feels the knick fans will be patient as long as. They're playing the right way. she a team. That's out there working as hard as they can playing smart and playing together though we recognized. And if we're taking care of all the little things. I think the big saints will end up taking care of them so long way to go quickly. College hoops state farm champions classic michigan state beat duke at an empty cameron. Indoor seventy five sixty nine. They had kansas over kentucky in the nightcap. Five sixty two. That game was in indianapolis saint. John's byu this evening. Five o'clock tip from mohegan. You've also got seton hall at rhode island at. It'll be a seven o'clock start. Speaking of college football real quick. I don't know. Did you see that kerr. Her occurred street stepped into into it. I did. I saw the whole thing. And i saw his apology and everything else. I suspect they did something to it when you think about it. But i can't believe that the big ten would allow mishkin to not play ohio state to keep them out of the big ten championship game and the college football playoff this. We will break the whole thing down kind of outbreak whole thing now. I just thought just go to break. I got some thoughts on it. Coming up next is a topic. And we'll give you those thoughts live from the built. Ford tough studio you remember. He was the one who said that there would not be college football and helped monday. It's a new episode of all rise. The legal trauma where one judge shaking up the system. When i take the bench. I'm taking a vow to fight for justice one case at a time. Your honor. we're going to trial. This is judge. Lola carmichael everything is different. A new episode of all rise. Freedom is at stake.

November 16 Hour 2 More Broncos/Raiders and The Remaining Season |

"The second and final hour of today's show kicking off the right way with zak. Stevens of dnv are broncos. Our broncos insider here zach ho boy where where do we want to start in this one. I know i know everybody's going drew. Lock i but i am. I am just appalled at the way. The broncos are using phillip lindsay. Reasonable thing. i can go in my brain is. He's still banged up. What what's going on there. Yeah well vic fangio. Today did not give him that excuse. He said that filipino. Probably isn't one hundred percent but he he's plenty fine enough to play but you're one hundred percent right brady Inexcusable is a good word for that phillip lindsay had four carries on the game. And maybe if this outcome was thirty seven to twelve and a lot of that damage happened in the first quarter. Be explainable would understand that. Let's say the bronco get down twenty four zero at the end of the first then. Well you're probably not going to run the ball and you put yourself in a really tough position but that's what it would be. You were down four points at halftime. You're within a touchdown near the end of the third quarter. This was not a game where you should have abandoned the run game and again i. It's the same story different week. Last week drew lock. Drop back more than fifty times and the running backs at fourteen combined carries this week drew. Lock drop back fifty one time and you're three running backs had a combined seventeen carries you can not have that be successful and by the way. That is only going to hurt. Drew lock which it literally did her drew. Lock both physically where he's dealing with a rib injury now and mentally where he's coming off. The worst game of his performance and a lot of people are jumping on that black understandably. So yeah no question about it when you see when this team is supposed to. You know they go out. They get melvin gordon to complement phillip lindsay. That's all we heard right his. Oh this isn't. This isn't a replacement on the depth chart. They're both ones. This is getting especially zach after hearing pat shurmur especially in press conferences. Say yeah we got a. We got a focus. More on running we got to commit to it. We have to. We have to scheme better for it. Gordon at eleven carries so they clearly didn't commit to running the football in any conceivable way. I is absolutely insane to me. Yeah it it is insane end. There's really no explanation behind it. Especially because the game was within reach really until the end of the third quarter. And then i do understand you pretty much abandoning the run. But you can't do that. The first three quarters of the game. This will happen every single week. If that's the approach you take and in terms of phil yesterday. Melvin gordon it. Probably had his best game as bronco he. He looks pretty good now. Obviously the stats wouldn't back that up. But he did look good but still phillip lindsay. Is your best player right now. The fact that he got three touches for negative two yards in the first tap is not good. It's not good for phillips. Not good for the offensive line is not good for drew. Lock not on anyone. And i'm at the point where brady a lot of people ask me what phillip future in denver are. They gonna sign to a long term deal. It's hard for me to say that. He has a future in denver. Maybe he has one more year. Because the broncos can Put a second round tender on him or a first round tender. Whatever they want to do they have control of him. But after this still has to feel disrespected only getting four russia's and we've seen from john elway that he brought in melvin. Gordon was willing to pay him on. The money. did not pay phillip lindsay the money this year and now we're also seeing what the coaching staff things to phillip lindsay by only using four times in that game and on top of that this entire season he only has one game where he has double digit. Carey's especially coming off of that oil two weeks later. I suppose that chargers game we could. We could argue all day phillip lindsay. Bryce callahan what was the game changer. We use we talked about this. Just simmons on the defensive side. They're excited because watching phillip lindsay score. They said oh. Wow we're in this game. We have a shot. I've never seen anything quite like this. The the obvious display of disrespect. Some people argue that. But i don't think there's any argument now that they're flat out disrespecting their most consistent offensive player for the last two years yeah was on the field for thirty percent thirty percent of the offensive players. And i understand that you know. You're paying melvin gordon. Eight billion dollars. You wanna feature him. He's having his best game. But maybe that's when. Melvin gordon is on the field fifty five percent and phillip lindsay is on the field forty five percent or they're both on the field for ten percent of the time so phillip lindsay. I think he has to be on the field half the time. And if you go gordon on the field half the time as well that's great there should also be some overlap between the two on the field. That's what we heard We were going to see this year. We saw in the very first quarter of the first game but once still got got her and it's come back. We have not seen that sense. It's it's pretty mind boggling. What with what's going on there now. Have you talked to phillip. Lindsay is made available. Have you have you heard anything about his thoughts. How he's feeling today have not talked to him. after the game and and honestly with only get four carries. I'd be scribe from not doing this week. Well that's tough all right well. Who knows what's going to happen there. But i think you and i both felt optimistic about his future with denver at the beginning of the season. Yeah it's tough to see a future there at least much past next season onto drew lock. He was twenty three for forty seven through forty seven times as you alluded to two hundred. Fifty seven yards the four interceptions. That's the big one and sometimes you can see interception. It's all right you know. That's just the way it goes sometimes but these interceptions at least most of them obviously very costly but just absolutely terrible throws yeah terrible throws in there. There's two ways that. I can summarize this game from the offense side. It's drew lock throwing an interception back foot to a defensive lineman and the on the on the other side for the broncos defense. It's devante booker scoring as many points as the broncos having more touchdowns than the broncos and having more rushing yards than the entire broncos but sticking through that i mean it it was as bad as it could be. And there's no excuses you know you can throw in the broncos. Run the ball. That didn't help them. That's true the offensive line didn't help him. Yeah that's true as well but drew lock was making some terrible terrible decisions at crucial points. I mean brady. It's not crazy to say we could be talking about broncos win if drew lock doesn't throw that touchdown right before halftime tend the broncos go into half with with the lead there. Then maybe we see phillip lindsay. Have i don't know fourteen carries the heck. Maybe he gets ten carries again But that that interception was absolutely killer. Throwing it to defensive. Lineman is absolutely killer And this this was a game where you're seeing. A lot of people jump off through locks bandwagon and i certainly understand that he did play hurt credit to him for that but this was something where drew lock said he was fine. The trainer said he was fine. So you can't really use that as an excuse other than just saying man he really is tough them. Like vic fangio said. I don't think anyone questioning his toughness. Now people are just questioning whether he's a long-term starter in the nfl. Zak stevens joining us from denver. Broncos yeah well that's the tough part two is you're looking around the rest of the nfl and this isn't just on drew lock. You're seeing teams that okay. They tore it all down at one point. The arizona's of the world the buffalo bills of the world. They started with the plan. They started with an identity. And then you see this crazy game. Take place yesterday. You're seeing some great young quarterback play. Look at miami. But the broncos again and again it can go all the way back to paxton lynch trevor. Simian whatever you wanna do there but it keeps pointing to this lack of identity and seeing teams that maybe struggled three years ago right. They're putting the plan together. The broncos are no further than they were the year after the super bowl. No they they really are. And what is really unfortunate is this. This isn't the the john elway as the peyton manning days where john elway getting benched throughout his rookie. Season golden one. Where peyton many leads. The league and interceptions and quarterbacks just need time to develop that is definitely the exception. Now more than the rule. You know in quarterbacks first few starts certainly within their first year if they're the truth is the guys come onto the scene and take a look at the broncos next opponent to. He looks like the truth. He's balling out in his first. Three games you see. Joe burrow truth murray looking really really good. These guys have success. That is not four into this game right now and drew lock just isn't having that so There is An understanding what people say. Well you need patients. You need patients yet. That is more of the old school way of thinking about it. Right now And so it certainly is frustrating for the broncos and now the best thing for the broncos this for drew lock to turn it around in these final seven games and be v. quarterback. Everyone should be cheering for that. Because if that happens. Then that's without a doubt the best thing for the broncos but if that doesn't happen then losing maybe the best thing because then they'll get them closer to the top of the draft Where where. There's a very exciting bunch of quarterback and just outside of the top two quarterbacks as well but it really is crazy that in with seven games left. That is a realistic conversation. That were happening. And you mentioned it with all these quarter all those quarterbacks you just mentioned the rules kinda lend itself. of course. I'm not trying to take away from some of these quarterbacks but the rules do lend itself or if you're not throwing for at least two fifty and and we're seeing less interceptions. Now i mean quarterbacks great quarterbacks throat a lot are throwing less picks You're you're you're not getting a piece of that pie so you can see where the urgency especially when you look at your own division. When i can say derek cars one of the worst quarterbacks in that division. That's a tough thing. Yeah exactly. I mean you you have derek carr who entering yesterday at sixteen towns to win receptions. Have patrick mahomes. I think he was something crazy. Like twenty five to one. And then you have justin herbert who has not had more interceptions than touchdowns in the game Entering yesterday and he he's the guy where he's thrown entering yesterday. He had thrown for either three touchdowns or three hundred yards in every single game of his young rookie season which is just crazy and then to on the other hand he had a game where he threw ninety three yards. He had a game where he threw one hundred fifty yards. He also had a game where he threw two hundred and fifty yards but he has not thrown an interception yet. So you're absolutely right. This is a game. That really favors the quarterback and good quarterbacks now they can still put up the crazy stat. They're just not putting up crazy. Touchdowns and drew lock has had multiple and multiple multiple interceptions thrown in the game. And then yesterday he has Four which is unacceptable. No matter who what quarterback you are and thinking of a falco and replacements quicksand it just feels like drew lock is in that quicksand for the last three games. It's not getting any better a lot of questions about this team. Zach right now if you had to play the prediction game because last week. I'm kind of doing the whole. Maybe we need some consistency no matter how bad it gets. Maybe it's time to just leave vic fangio alone. Leave pat shurmur. Leave drew lock alone. Give it some time. But it's getting worse. So what's your prediction. Are we the of those three guys. Let's throw elway in that. Mix of those four guys. Are they all back next year. We just load this thing up again and again. I know there's more season but it's a prediction game. Yeah well and and Andy reid designed a long term extension. So does go to brett beach with the kansas city chiefs And that's being talked about is long term continuity and stability and that is just something that the broncos have not had and i don't think they're going to have just with the way this thing is going up those four guys you pension brady john elway back next year. He's not firing itself and a lack of ownership is certainly not going to fire john. Wait so he's back now. Let's see how these next seven games play out and brady right now. It's not looking good for at least two of those guys right now. I'm on given the edge given the nod to vic fangio that he's back book for the other two. It's really really hard to say that. They have a bright future here. Even though there is a huge argument for stability and continuity but brady where we're looking at a game or the rest of the season with the broncos aren't going to be favored in a single game but the rest of the season in fact all year and so there's a realistic chance that the broncos win one game of their remaining seven no games of their remaining seven bad as it would conversation to have and the broncos though three and thirteen. You can't stick with those same for guys. You have to change something up and and it'll start with tom mcmahon. I don't believe he'll be back at special teams. Then you gotta do more than just that if you're three and thirteen or four and twelve so then you go down. I if the broncos don't win another game don't win a couple more games. Drew lock has not shown us that. He's the guy so there'll be a new quarterback and then at that point what it might as well bring in a new offense and so that that's what you're looking at and if it really does go three and thirteen bat foreign twelfth that then that's when it moved up to the next level of vic fangio as well it's hidden. It's getting rough. I mean we've been here before. Feels like but boy you get tired of. I guess you get tired of talking about exactly. I wanted to get your thoughts on this. You being in the media dealing with so many of these players and coaches on on a daily basis. I'm following my pursell on twitter. I'm seeing obviously drew. Lock statements the last couple of weeks. And hey you know a lotta guys that criticize us have never have never so may as if maybe pointing out that. Maybe their criticism isn't worthy. You're seeing tweet out things like hey we're not. We're not animals in a cage where we have feeling to. It almost feels to me like players now. Some these players on twitter don't want criticism so they're saying hey you didn't play. Stop criticizing and treat us like human beings i am. I reading that the wrong way kind of ruffled feathers a little bit over the weekend. Yeah and and i totally understand why that would roughly feathers and get under fan nerves as well. You're right but we didn't. We didn't play the game at the nfl level What we also didn't get paid that type of money at the nfl level. I do think if it gets to where you're taking personal insults and personal shots at people that that's unacceptable vans but if you're properly calling a game how you see employers performances how you see it. I mean that comes with being part of the game with coming with that huge paycheck with coming with the fame and brady i. It does rubbed me the wrong way. Because they knew that's what they signed up for that win they're great. They are going to be praised. And that's all they have to do if they want to be. Talked about in a better light. It may have to play better. And no one wants to cheer harder for the broncos in denver colorado and broncos country. Are you kidding me. This isn't new york. Where if they're winning. Everything's going to be negative against them. Know everyone's going to jump on their bandwagon and be pulling so hard for them but it's been rough that this is the worst broncos football that we've seen in decades. This is the first time. The broncos have given up thirty points in four straight games since nineteen sixty eight this. Is you know. The broncos can't find a quarterback and it looks like they're trending on another quarterback to go along with their quarterback carousel right now maybe new offense coordinator maybe new head coach. I'm right there with you. I don't like when the messages on fans and media. Now we're just doing our job here and one of the things that that my friend choi rank says it when players say that sort of thing like you didn't play so you don't know don't judge me troy says we've never written a thousand words at the end of a game and ten minutes to meet deadline either. We're doing our job here. You guys do your job here and if you do your job right then we're gonna be saying a lot of good things about you and then a love that point to i. It's also criticism makes it. We're talking about you. it's popular right. If the media cited movies you know you don't have to be an actor to be to be a movie critic you can talk about it. And that's what makes movies rock. That's what makes sports go and it just. I hope this isn't the trend here that we see again to me. It kind of started with drew. Lock a couple of weeks ago. I'm thinking man. Don't want to silence that criticism because people like you that that are writing those articles that are talking about storylines lineup each and every week. That's what we get into. That's why the nfl's king because we have a week to talk and write about it So hopefully players can kind of can kind of start to understand that but again social media gives us a voice that maybe you know. We're we're all still getting used to. Yeah exactly and and the worst thing for players and for media and for the sport is advocacy by fans and. That's just fan not caring so at least criticism. They're still carrying. They're still tuned in because at the end of the day. If there's no fan than those big paychecks aren't cashing and Especially in broncos country. That's something that we haven't seen yet because the team has been bad for five years but there's some things that have been bad for decades and at that point they do lose fans and that is not what you want. I don't think the broncos are there yet but having fans still paying attention in criticizing not the worst thing. Yeah no. I agree with you. A hundred percent. Zac appreciate you may. Hey what are you working on for us that we can check out. Hopefully it's not too critical. Well this week is all about drew. Lock in many phases and the most important one right now. There's a chance brady. He may not play this coming week. Not because he's been benched although some people are calling for that the broncos aren't going to bench him but his rib injury that he suffered yesterday still being evaluated right now. He's questionable the practice on wednesday and his status for the game. This coming weekend is up in the air. So that's certainly will be following and that would be the worst thing for the broncos. It's the half drew. Lock miss a game or two because the rest of the season is finding out. If he's the guy or not yeah. I'm looking forward to that. Zac appreciate you as always my friend and we'll look forward to catching up with later. Down the road. Thanks for having me on brady armament zak stevens of dnv broncos. Yeah it's a. It's a tough situation for sure. But you know you see. I saw mike pursell and listen. He is he mike. Pursell one hundred percent right on a few things you know. He's saying hey treat us with respect still. We don't want to get to this point where you know you're you're calling the personal attacks and i totally agree with that. If you're getting on twitter calling guys bombs and saying you know just absolutely personal things. Yeah they read that stuff. Their kids read this stuff. So i get that. But if you're calling a guy out saying hey drew lock shouldn't be the quarterback for the broncos anymore. That's that's part of it. That's part of this game. That's part of the growth of sports. Is you want fans and fans are not always gonna be. It's all puppies and kittens. They're going to be critical of the game. I never. I'm not one of those guys that says. Hey you shouldn't make this amount of money. That's too much money. No you met you earn you. Bust your hump. You work extremely hard to be a professional football player. There's no doubt about it man in so you earn every penny of it in my opinion. But you're also doing something that you love. You love the game of football most of us when we hit that age right or we just never even got close. We don't get to extend our football careers pass junior high or high school or college those. Nfl do so with that okay. You're getting paid a lot to do something that you love so great. That's awesome but now you're in the limelight and part of that is yeah. You're you're going to be criticized. I'm not saying you have to be okay with every single thing that comes your way but maybe do the aaron rodgers relax thing once in a while rather than going off i guess i i like my pursell. I follow him on twitter. I agree with ninety percent of the things. He's he posted but he was defensive for his teammates over the weekend in one end you like that But again you go to the next thing with drew lock and it's well guys. Criticizing me never played before. Well then that wipes out most of the media. They're not writing about you then. The zacks writing an article now drew lock. Wipe out. everybody never played. And nobody's talking about you. Your favorite radio hosts aren't talking about you. Your favourite tv personalities aren't talking about you so There's gotta be respect on both ends. I get it. You gotta be a respectful person. Those i don't boo games. I don't but i don't blame fans for doing it. It's your experience. It's a game it's fun anyway. There's my ran twenty six minutes after the hour. We'll take a quick break here. High school football. I don't know where we are on on on a daily basis here but we do have playoffs coming up this week and you'll hear it on. Kfi k. a But what exactly will we hear. We'll talk about that next. It's the whole show powered by pd energy. It's a party. Northern colorado's voice thirteen ten. Kfi k. the block party wednesdays from four to ten pm cone now. Weekdays at four northern colorado's voice. Thirteen ten kfi k. Hey it's dan patrick. You're listening to my pal brady hall. Check out the whole show on northern colorado's football station. Thirteen ten k f k thirty one minutes after the hour. I mean we're we're bust through this show today. It's just it's flying by so we'll have plenty of more play. More broncos raiders aftermath tomorrow. Where do we go from here with denver. Power play sports. Poll question are the broncos going to be shopping for new quarterback next year. And they later it. Certain certainly feels like clark johnson. I have a lot of questions for you clark. Numbers johnson of preps. Radio is this right. Mead great high school football team they essentially have to forfeit their game. They have to forfeit their game because of Cova but also the contact tracing and all that. Yeah and we don't know what it is whether players came down with it or you know what happened. Eat and the teacher comes down with it and so by connie. Just say everybody. That's been in there. You gotta go you gotta go. Quarantine also the great thing for the reds is. They'll have their players back thursday so for them going forward fine but for made the numbers must have been so big that they said. Hey jason cloud probably said hey. We can't we can't play which is huge because that's a team. It always goes deep. You know i'll that's tough. Yeah i mean that and now that makes you start. Every year during the playoffs would go. Okay let's talk about injuries. It's not injuries this year. Can you make it three weeks without contact tracing or covert hit in your school and and make it through the through the playoffs but for the most part unless it's a specific team you'll playoffs are ago. Were scheduled to have playoffs playing football for those teams that have qualified of course to them. And you know we we hear about cases and then there's vaccines all that stuff. But i'm guessing neither one of those right now has really a real impact where we're set to have football this week and she also wants to finish this thing. Do not want to stop like they didn't basketball last year. You know as we get to the championship games or or semifinals. They want to get this done so unless a completely bolos up. I think you just have maybe a team or two that. Say eight can't do this. Yeah all right so let's go through it what we know at this point. Let's start at the one. A side of things highland missed out. Is that correct. They ended up number nine. And and that's tougher steamed. I mean they lost their opening two. They won the next four years. Four and two but here is the first casualty of any university. Could say this too on the two aside being number nine number ten at the end of the year. Normally you'd be gonna postseason here. We are in kobe. You're you're out on the outside looking in now. It's a stranger. I would imagine most teams kinda get that and just say it is what it is. I suppose how about resurrection christian at this point in time. What are we looking like. They're get the number one seed. Blew everybody out. All season gets gored upon two hundred and thirty one to nothing question for them. They didn't really play. I mean they've they've beat university and they hard them. Forty-seven nothing but other than they didn't play anybody so and you can only play. Who's in front of you like. my test. says that are the best team in the state. But how does that change. When you get into the semi-finals they might play. Eating in the semifinals of eaten can win at pagosa. That's that's way harder than any football team. They played this year. So how do they do when they get first. Bid of adversity. Or i i push in the playoffs. How are they going to get through that off. County should be able to breathe that they have seven players out. Moffitt does how but will still play the game at least for now. They're shopping for a place to play. We're supposed to play saturday at one o'clock at windsor highs saturday. One o'clock a windsor. Windsor wants to do what some of the high schools are doing. Who missed the playoffs. They're trying to get with another team that another school. That missed the playoffs and have a seventh game. That really doesn't mean anything. Say the kids get to play another game that but winter saying now to res- would not so fast my friend. We wanna play saturday at one. So jeff van winkle and resurrection christian looking for a home site to play at times. I'm glad it's hard enough to chase these reschedule games. Those decisions a game that's going to be on. Koa will have which one we we're gonna have platte valley delta on saturday one so that's it came mcdaniel just blowing up at the end of the year here. The senior had another great ballgame. A what a finish we had on preps radio is an amazing game for basically who wins. That game is going to be at home. That's platte valley. Eden has to go to pagosa springs and i six hour drive eight and i got a hand saw heads Just complete hats off to what they did. Though without seven starters the reds go toe to toe with flat belly on saturday and broncos and cade mcdaniel win with thirty two seconds to go mcdaniel hits west and meyer for a sixty yard touchdown pass and the platte valley win so we'll have platte valley on the radio one o'clock against delta on saturday that should now what an exciting game for sure right here on thirteen ten. Kfi how about roosevelt. They get the top seed. They'll host fort morgan on saturday. Absolutely roosevelt looks like the best team. I mean it's gonna be fun. This is a balanced roosevelt offense. Not just that run. Happy team the they normally have and their defense is outstanding. This is a game against fort morgan. That was scheduled there in the from the same conference game that was scheduled a few weeks ago and fort. Morgan couldn't play because of covid. And so and and that almost cost for morgan a seating. They got the eighth seed but guess who they get. They get roosevelt. So we'll see that game what that looks like They'll play saturday at one as well. How about this. We'll have a friday night game for free. I playoff game. I love that yes. I do think that we should do this in a normal time is just have night game. They play at night most of the time all season and then all of a sudden they play six in the morning. everybody Four seeded love one to host this broomfield team on friday night. That'll be here on thirteen ten k now. This is probably the best match up of the first round of any of the games. I've seen Loveland got the four bloomfield's the five. They've split the last eight meetings for a piece. The last time these two teams met in the playoffs was two thousand seventeen in this same spot in the quarterfinal game. Broomfield one that one. Twenty eight twenty seven in overtime So i expect a much more of the same here The big variable besides kobe Is this weekend rain showers. Sixty percents supposed to be friday night and then here comes the snow. All i see our snow showers and about thirty degrees on saturday. So a good luck to us. Those earmuffs going in and the the box on saturday at platte valley. But we'll see how that works but friday night. We'll be gotta bring our baggies because we'll be in a rain on. Manuel provides our old days. And you gotta jump in with. Maybe we had some winter. I'd i don't wanna i don't wanna make you feel bad here. I will be in a press box for the sea issue. Unlv the all warm. I will be a warm. We're at chick fillet in the area was but you gotta sit away from everybody. You just kinda lonely but You here's the interesting thing for sports. I heard chick-fil-a made a big deal with with one of the nfl teams to be in in stadium. Rest how interesting. They're not open on sundays. They're going to open on sunday. No no they will really geico against what they believe so just shut. I'm hearing is boy. Is that the dumbest thing you've ever done is to get with. Maybe they will get it. A loophole may not actually a store. Who make that deal. If you're if you're a sunday is the nfl right. Unless they're just they're gonna go there on thursday night. yeah just through their thursday night. Monday night games. That's it they'll just do. Those while heavily. Should be a fun weekend. Clark or you hear anything on the basketball front. I know we're preparing our thirteen days. Thirteen teams high school training camp coverage for basketball. That'll be later in the month of november kind of bleeding over december. As of right now expecting ago everything sounds like it's a go. The big thing to me is and they've already done. This implemented this at power to play sports. We have to wear a mask while you play. And i'm thinking wow i'm an old man. I can't get through shopping at the store with a mask on. How do they play a whole game while their kids they can get there I heard that once they stopped you know everybody does it once and complains. It's not that bad you can get through it. So but that's that might be. What we see is at referees and players on the court wearing masks during basketball but And then probably limited if any people in the stands for now for maybe the maybe maybe this season who has what it might look like. I know you see on the on the college basketball side of things they announced december at least would have no fans available. Clark tell us a little bit about weld community credit union. Yeah i love these guys. No doubt about it. They've got this great new app. They're working with the zaubeko. The financial literacy app developed by duke university's behavioral scientists.

This is the broncos daily jest with brandon krisztal. I want everything. I want all the meatballs and the pasta. Have you broncos country. Happy certainly isn't for our okwuegbunam. The broncos rookie tight end announce yesterday that he tore his. Acl is done for the year. Here's vic fangio trying to find a silver lining on the news that the promising youngster is gonna be on the shelf for awhile albert that. Get an acl injury. And he will miss the rest of the season. Fortunate thing i was. It's just the acl. The acl only many times when get an acl. It's awesome other ligaments. So his rehab repair should go clean and he should be back as good as new next season. So eleven catches one hundred twenty one yards that one score should have been more heady of hauled in one or both of those. Td passes that his college qb drew. Lock him with in new england and locked. Join logan and louis like he does every monday and it was pretty shortly after. The news out about alberto here was his reaction to losing his favorite target missouri. They had seventeen catches and eighteen game seventeen touchdowns and eighteen games and into one of his more reliable and clearly favorite targets here at the pro level. Yeah you know just being really really close to albert it. It hurts you know. I don't know it's upsetting for him as sure. I don't really know if he's had to deal with any big injuries yet. you know but i'll be there for them We live pretty close together. So i know he's he's by himself right now and try to fake his life as possible if i can when i can but it is upsetting and then a little bit after that drew on. They talked bradley. Chubb every monday as well. He's no stranger to an acl tear. And you know he has continued to say that it was a great thing for him that he tore his. Acl you talking about turning a negative into a positive. He tells me that he told me that. A bunch early because we talk every week for broncos pre game That and he said it publicly a lot that it allowed him to Kind of refocus and and and understand what's important and play every snap like it could be his last so here bradley job to dave and rick on here in the news about alberto. Turn his acl him. Working in the way your own truck camper and see his work at a lot of those guys that. I ended auto same work same the day. I wanna get back fast. And also his especially albert. And i'm excited to see how he deals off. Hopefully he matures and and like mature like for me last year. Not in the game from an outside perspective for Probably hasn't had that for a while. He's been playing along and from our perspective and in really appreciate and come back to your hundred feet. I on the recovery russia's so we're the broncos go from here a while they're down to two healthy tight end sort of healthy. Nick vannett that on through foot stuff we know. No offense ankle can't be one hundred percent. We saw him limping on sunday. But he's gonna continue to fight through that. Andrew beck is expected back for the dolphins game. Jake butt expected back for the saints game. It's my understanding that he's already ready to go and wishes that he wasn't on. I r but that is the way it goes the broncos at brought introit who mugabe last week to go through the six days of covid nineteen testing. He's going to be added to the practice squad. He'll be elevated very likely the next two weeks of the former bronco's fourth rounder will get to play for the team that drafted him back in two thousand eighteen. He of course was cut at the end of training camp. He'd been with houston on their practice squad and they let him go october. Twenty seventh broncos also gonna sign jon jalapeno to their practice squad. He played with pat shurmur last couple of years in new york and started. I think fifteen games form center so we'll see lap you being a game day call up or if he has shot to get any real run. I think they're going to continue to push. Lloyd cushenberry and vic fangio did announce that both shelby harrison. Graham glasgow be back this week. At least that's the plan was shelby. Grass began his three days of mandatory training at the training center. began sunday. So he'll be ready to go when they hit the practice field tomorrow shelby. Not sure if he's got an all clear but victim to think that he would be ready to go wednesday again. He tested negative but had close contact with someone who had tested positive so he'd been in isolation since last tuesday not sure if he's still in isolation or not a but he should be back this week and ready to go against his former team and the raiders they were the team signed him out of illinois state and i think he played four games for maybe at one sack from not mistaken. But so it'll be good to get shelby and graham glasgow back if flown under the radar mark barron. his i. our window opened. The speedy linebacker has been hurt since the final practice of the preseason that friday night practice they had at empower field at mile high pulled a hamstring. And when you're in your mid thirties. Sometimes that easy to get back from a hamstring. As for other broncos injuries demar dotson the latest on fant. Both of those mcvay wasn't that worried about but didn't have a good update for us on monday. And then both aj boy and bryce callahan who they desperately need to corners. He said he expects to see both of them back this week. So boy must have progressed in concussion protocol and i guess he's not that worried about callahan's ankles that's where it stands on the injury front. The broncos will meet virtually. today. I did vic fangio. Will they continue to meet virtually this week. You didn't have a good answer as to how it relates to the team. He said the coaches are are in the building and that was all he new to. This point I guess i could find out a little later if the players are going to be in the building or working virtually so I guess is they'll continue to work. Virtually especially on a tuesday wanted just film study. And i don't know if that means guys will come in and lift on their own Or how that works. That's usually what tuesday lifting and going over film with your position group so we'll see how that plays out. We're going to get to rick lewis here. In one second remind you about chug water. Chilly go to chug water. Chilly dot com promo code chug water be k. To save twenty five percent up at a grocer near you of course. But water chillier spicer western. Life had some chug water Julia the other night. And i know we're gonna have again this week because my wife went to the store because i don't know how to do that. I'm an idiot. I mean. I had to go to the store. I just don't know any of the stuff that she needs. But it's it was obvious when she returned from picking up the pre Arranged groceries From walmart that we are going to have some water. Chilly here in the very near future with the cold weather outside it's no better time than the checkout chug water cell really dot com promo code water. Bk all right. Let's get to dr. Rick lewis the radio doctors. I like to call them. Six everyday on three five the fox nine to noon with Dave logan logan and louis on and nice up to join me every week. Here's the one. And only rick lewis rick before we get into the specifics of the game. And maybe it's because when you lose the way they did now wasn't as embarrassing say the chiefs loss even with the fun comeback. I don't know if anybody really thought they were going to do it. Two weeks in a row based on how. That game unfolded so. It's not that we can't break down some things that happen in that game and maybe we'll talk about the young corners. But i did the post game. Show the broncos. React over time as i like to call it. Because broncos react belongs to. Mike reiss even on what roaches intro. Says we threw it out there. Somebody texted us. What does drew lot need to show. Let's start there. What is your lock to show in these final. Eight games is dave. This question on colorado's morning news on monday after the game. What does the show these last eight games to say not that he's the guy for a decade. That's its own thing that he's the guy next year that they're not trying to draft a quarterback not trying to trade for sam darnold or acquire a vet or anything like that. You know what. I just got you so damn it. I don't know what's going on. I'll decline still got you okay. What's now on speakerphone. Might might ear is just touch a button and it. Just god okay. I'm just go to speakerphone. Because the phone equalities the quality's not noticeable so all right now house speaker phones. Yeah it's fine. That's what i'm saying. Is if if i if you were in the car. It's very obvious but right now. Okay quiet i can't okay. Start over sorry well. So i'm not gonna. I did a lot of talk. And but basically what you to show you in the final eight games to show you that. He's the man going into next year. Well became first of all. I want to say. I think it's it's too early to determine if drew lock is the guy or not a love to see him. Stay healthy to play the final eight games of the season. I want to see him get more consistent. I would love to see him and the offense get off to a faster start. We're watching at least the last couple of weeks. The team getting buried in the first half and then trying to come back in the second half. I'd love to see them. Convert more third downs that that seems to be a big problem with this football team. It really you can go back the last couple of years no matter who's play quarterback that's been a big problem for this football team. It's just a matter of being more consistent and drew. Lock is one of those guys that Young quarterbacks he flashes he might slash for a quarter and then he doesn't look good for a quarter or two. And that's pretty much what we've seen from drew lock here so far in twenty twenty you know when you look at his stat line in the last two games in the fourth quarter. It's phenomenal. he's twenty five to thirty nine. Three hundred six yards five touchdowns and then one rushing touchdown as well so six touchdowns in one hundred seventeen point one passer rating. I mean anybody would take those numbers if you could get drew. Lock playing like that early in the game. Or the broncos could get up you know if the broncos could go up twenty one to three twenty four to seven and let the other other team try to claw their way back into the game in the fourth quarter. I think we'd have a lot more wins on the board that we're getting right now know and as you were giving that answer i was trying to figure out what his fourth quarter. Qbr is espn has broken down in their in their stats deeper. His total qbr. Right now is twenty ninth in the league out of thirty one. Qb's dwayne haskins is thirty. I i don't know why. There's not a thirty second quarterback dwayne haskins thirty one. Sam darnold thirtieth drew lock. Twenty ninth in total. Qbr for the entire season. You know fourth quarter. Notwithstanding and i and i can't find that answer so to your point about them getting started sooner. I guess the question is do you. Put the blame on. Drew lock or on pat shurmur and offensive staff or equal blame. Like if you're going to assign a percentage is it a little more on the coaches or a little more on drew lock and the players because look there were times yesterday and dave talked about a lot. You guys brought up on the broadcast. He'll brought her up again on your show on monday. Talked about the free runners. You know grady. Jarrett's the best defensive lineman interior linemen this side of aaron donald and when lloyd cushenberry goes left show up and he goes right. Grady jarrett to run it drew lock. That's not an ideal situation and that's one hundred percent not do locks vault there unless he told each of them to go a different way which i'm sure he did well until you this calling the game in real time and i haven't had a chance to go back in in re watch it. I didn't see anybody open especially in that first. Half and i'm looking in these. Were things dave. And i talk about. If not on the we'll talk about during the break you know he might ask me it. Anybody open downfield. And and i might even ask him if you do. You see anybody open and the answer is no these guys. These young receivers are still trying to figure out the game as well. So there's a couple of things working against drew lock number one drew. Lock being a young quarterback trying to get more consistent number two. You've got young receivers. That are that are having a tough time. Getting open Now the second half things changed up a bit and suddenly Judy hamblur were getting open. You know these guys are still learning as well in a big problem for drew yesterday was he didn't have any time to throw man that that offensive line was just getting blown up. It seemed like just about every every pass play. You know every third down play you know people say they wanna see drew. Lock throw more from the pocket. What pocket he doesn't he doesn't have a pocket and yesterday especially with demar dotson went out man. It was a mess out there. You got a rookie center. You've got a backup right guard and you've got a backup right. Tackle back by the way four. Basically jake rogers is your fourth right. Tackle count on james in them in your three or forty exactly. I was about to say that he is really tackled number. Four and so. You're really asking a lot of any quarterback. Bk let alone a young inexperienced quarterback who's played about eight or nine games to be able to make throws under those conditions. Now i'm not giving him a full pass on this. You know but but when you look at all of the challenges that he has to deal with man he's got he's got a full plate well so we make comparisons in sports and certainly at that position More than others before. Before i get into the comparison of paul klee threw out there on the broncos post game show with me sunday night and then who someone else out there that i like. Maybe a little bit more when when you kind of break down the numbers and style of play You guys talked to do lock every monday. And so you'll talk to him. After this falcons game. And what. I appreciate you do the same with dave when he wasn't gonna throws a line under the bus even though you know. I just pointed out a very obvious play. That wasn't his fault. And then i asked him about taking too much responsibility. Basically kind of piggybacking on dave's question even though it happened in the zoom press conference i said hey i heard you not wanna throw line under the bus with dave but at what point are you taking on too much responsibility. And he said hey. I'm the quarterback. I'm always going to do this. Any quarterback worth their salt. I'm paraphrasing is always going to take all the responsibility so i'm saying all that to say he. He has the leadership qualities you want. And he has all of the intangibles. I like to compare not him to mark sanchez. but like jarrett. Stidham coming out. You heard all about the intangibles mark. sanchez house. All the intangibles. They didn't have enough tangible. The difference with drew lock. Because i think he has those intangibles but he has more than enough tangible traits to be good. And we're just not seeing it consistently which is kind of where you started. When i said what do you want to see you said consistency but you get that sense talking to him every week right. He's he's not just giving you lip service. This is the way he's wired. I totally agree. and yes. he's got the tangible handy's got the intangibles to he's got it all. he's first round talent that dropped to the second round. And if you remember the knock on lock was that he was a bit inconsistent in college as well. Now this guy through ninety nine touchdown passes in college so he had great success in college. Completion rate wasn't very good at missouri. And i believe that's probably why he dropped down to the second round so he's got all the talent. He's got elite talent and he does some things really really well May maybe at this point. It's more of a mental game from for him and he really just has to play through this. He's not going to get better on the bench. He's not going to get better. Learning behind a veteran quarterback at this point i mean he just has to play and just get more reps and if he can get through the season and we see progress from week to week and in this case. Eight games to go. I think we'll know by the end of the season if drew lock. Is the guy moving forward or not. And i think the broncos will know the same thing you know another thing that we we didn't really talk about regarding the young wide receivers is the denver broncos lead the league in dropping catchable passes. I mean that's that's a major factor right there and we've seen it from game one. You know when they really need to get a third down the if they really need to to To hang onto the ball so they don't have to pawn it back so a team can go down the field on them. In score game winning touchdown or field goal. They dropped passes it. We saw it happen again yesterday. Well drops from lindsey a couple of drops from hamler. You know this is a this is a big problem. Another big problem for a young quarterback tab well and dave will talk about wide receiver being dependent position. But how many times have great wide receivers made of quarterbacks. Look better whether it's peyton manning getting to throw to reggie wayne and marvin harrison all those years or deandre hopkins year after year in houston where it was a revolving door of quarterbacks still making it to the pro bowl and having a hundred catches clearly making subpar. Qb's look good and there's just a couple of examples. But i look back at the patriots game where he puts to on the money to albert one today shot hamilton. All three of those should have been scoring. Both of our rose were in the end zone. At some point. You can only do so much and to your point. It's one thing when you talk about targets there's nothing about catchable passes and there was one that both you dave commented on in the second half where it was that same kind of role right crosser to jerry jeudy where you both acknowledge he you know had had some zip on it. Maybe a little. A little more than judy was expecting but he's got to come down with that. The past tim. Patrick maybe they missed a pass interference the one on the left side. His arm was held on. Both of those would be touchdowns but drew put it in his left. Hand a catchable ball that we've seen some guys make one handed catch. I'm not picking tim patrick. So at some point you do need to help not just with the online but you need your your pass catchers when you're hitting them in stride or hitting them on on the money or catchable ball to holiday in there's no doubt in it. Sounds like we're making excuses for drew. Lock in and i guess we are but something like there are s- right right involved in this whether it's injured players or his team not helping him out. It's one thing if he's just throwing pick after pick after pick or missing receivers that are wide open all the time. Overthrowing him under throwing them. That's not the case here. And when you look at just herbert for the chargers and that's a guy that drew lock Has been getting a lot of comparisons with here recently. Just in herbert has a pro bowl caliber wide receiver and keenan allen. That's the guy that's gonna make all of those catches in a guy that he can count on. He's got hunter henry another really good Receiver up there. Some veteran guys. Mike williams the first round. Pick mike williams. Yeah and they're still losing football games. We we should also mention that. They have a worse record than the denver. Broncos do in the broncos beat them but it's it really helps. The point is when you're a young quarterback trying to figure things out you have to when you make good throws your guys have to catch it and you guys have to get open. And so that's that's that's a big problem here. Judy had a breakout game. an hamler might say handler did as well yesterday but was all in the second half they. These guys need to get off to a faster. Start and start playing with a lead for a change in know start. Start getting more. You know third down in twos. Is that if third down in nine. You know Lately they can't run the ball. Well why do you think that is the offensive line is decimated right now with with glasgow out And and you got a young center. Cushenberry who i think is getting better from week to week but The offensive line has been an issue the last couple of games. Well so i mentioned comparison. So paulk lee wanted to compare drew lock. He called him a nice jay cutler. Just meaning you know. His teammates love him. Good guy but kind of the same same guy. That's going to rely on his arm. Maybe more than than his head even though they're both smart guys right. Jay is no dummy. You don't dummies at vanderbilt andrews. Not a dummy by any means but rely on their talent before maybe dissecting exactly what you should be doing on on a given play i had somebody carson wentz and then i went and looked at carson wentz's numbers and carson runs a little more than he should and i think that's why he's gotten banged up a lot carson's had teams decimated by injury all the time but he played in. Mvp level of the year. They won the super bowl until he got hurt. And so carson a little bigger. He's six five and drew six four. There drew the little faster carmen. Four seven seven four six nine. I certainly am more excited. About the comparison to win then cutler cutler had a nice career that ninety five percent of not hire. Nfl quarterbacks would take jay cutler's career two hundred and twenty seven touchdowns. I think one hundred and fifty picture so one pro bowl right. There are plenty. Who would take that. But if you're building a franchise you're not saying jay cutler is is your goal. I don't think right. You're certainly not saying i want my to be jay cutler like to start for many years but you want him to have more success. Either of those. That's funny yeah. And i've heard jay cutler comparison with drew lock. I can kind of see it. And you could certainly do a lot worse than jay cutler as your quarterback over the next ten years carson wentz of course A different story and keeping my both those guys were first round picks you know. Don't forget that drew lock was taken in the second round drew lock certainly as first round talent and just the way. The draft played out that year. He dropped to two round number two. I don't know you know you make a really good point. You're not ever going to draft a quarterback and go. Hey this is the next jay cutler excited about it right but think about it. Say he he ends up. As good as jay cutler lot worse you could build a team around that in win. We saw it happen when he was certainly in chicago. He had a really good though. I believe the pro bowl that year. He should've one. Pro bowl came here. Last year was denver. But you're you're right and they had him in. Nfc championship game. Then he gets hurt and hang out to dry on the injury report in our guy from to come in. Because what tod collins didn't remember any of the place i think i'm trying to remember the qb from kale One that his name kale something anyway. Yeah but but you know what. I in other words. You can do a lot worse than both of those guys. You can win with those guys. You can build a team around those guys. And let's face it. Both those guys cutler was a franchise quarterback and carson wentz is is a franchise. Here's numbers. I mentioned the one pro bowl in from six to seventeen so ten eleven year. Eleven twelve years wherever that is two hundred twenty seven thousand one hundred sixty six completed sixty two percent of his passes so not that magical sixty five number sixty to seventy four and seventy nine career record overall in all those years in the one pro carson has started sixty four games. He's thirty five twenty eight and one obviously that eleven two year when they won the super bowl his second year. Hundred thousand nine hundred forty seven. I t so both those guys. You're looking at two to one. And jay's case a little less than two to one and that's kind of ordinary lock is now i think he's thirteen to nine touchdowns two interceptions. You need to clean that up a little. But that's not three to one which is what what you'd like. I guess it's not that we're going to make excuses. I'm gonna continue to give him the benefit of the doubt until he has a game where he has four interceptions. He threw that one yesterday and does that game over game. He showing me enough each week to think man these couple things tweaked if his a line was healthier if they weren't you know playing from behind the whole time that maybe we'd see what we saw houston game last year and how good would drew lock. Look if he was on some of those teams that cutler played for or the philadelphia eagles super bowl team. You think drew lock would look better or a lot better yeah. This is a struggling team and it has been since they won the super bowl. You know it. So that's another factor and just another thing that that drew lock is dealing with. This is struggling football team. And now they've got. I think a really talented set of young receivers both both tight ends. I love i love fans. I love alberto to bed. What happened with the acl tear. And you gotta love judy. Hamler looks like he's the player. You get courtland sutton back next year. How how much better would he be of. Courtland sutton was playing right now. Yeah how much better when everybody because of the attention courtland would would. Yes yes a reliable true number one wide receiver pro bowl wide receiver. It makes a big difference. I think drew it look a whole lot better so i know. We've made a lot of excuses for him. But but i think they're legit. My final drew lock question for you then will drew lock starting next year. I'm not gonna hold your feet to the fire and say hey remember on november ninth november tenth. You said yes he would or no. He wouldn't but if you were go to which of your favorite gambling site and they would let you bet or draftkings my favorite gambling site and they would let you bet is drew. Lock the starter in two thousand and twenty one for the broncos. What would you bet so. I'm going to be nostra. Dhamma snow and predict future with eight games to go. I would if i. If i had to bet i would say drew. Lock would be the quarterback next year. How about you. I would as well i would go make that bet right now at draft kings or fan duel but draftkings. Because they give me money and i i would make that. I would make that bet. I think he's going to be the quarterback. 'cause i think sometimes it's hard to see the four search trees and maybe this is a bigger broncos conversation when you're a fan and the best example is your dad with the detroit lions. He goes into every year thinking. Man i'd love to make the playoffs right. Just be nice but they're not thinking about championships enough in detroit and then the game starts and the lions are beating xyz team even when it's the packers and they're really good or beating. Tom brady and the patriots me or whatever it may be right there beating them and your dad get sucked in it's like al pacino and godfather three so broncos fans you can ask all the broncos country right now no one's telling you they're winning the super bowl this year. We're expecting them to with the rash of injuries and just where they are as a team but then the game starts. And you're like wait. Why are they playing so bad. Let's get rid of this guy. Let's get to that guy. Let's trade him with fire him. Why do they suck so bad. And then you have to remind yourself where their roster is. you're missing you're starting corners. Your plan rookies there. The we've touched on a lot. And so it's it's about taking a step forward and building in all these spots with all these young guys and windsor. Nice but lost his actually. Help your draft position if you're not going to be a playoff team. They're not ready to concede that but to me. That's the hardest thing for broncos country realized because it's been so many years now without playoffs something. They're not used to this year. Isn't about winning super bowl. It's about taking a step forward in all the spots where these young guys need to. Just play your the lions. That's a great analogy. And that's that's i was born and raised in detroit and have been watching losing lions teams my entire life by the way And denver broncos fans have been spoiled. There's no doubt about it. And i tell my dad that all the time you know a he. He's optimistic every year. That this is going to be the lions year. And he he. He's stays with that team year after year. And my dad is lived so many places around the country as you know. I've moved around a lot as a kit right. Yeah and i told my dad recently. I said you know that. If you would've just taken some interest in the teams where we along the way you know. How many super bowls you've missed me for real. He missed the rams. He missed the bengals going to the super bowl. He missed the bears going to the super bowl. He missed the broncos. He lived here when the broncos were on their super bowl run and he was still alliance fan and he said. I don't care. He said that's my team. You know so. That's a loyal fans here. But the broncos set the bar so high you know in in the compliment. I'm giving them a compliment. When i say that that broncos fans they expect to win every year and that's the expectation from this organization and now it's been four years. It's been this year number. What four or five one thousand five hundred sixty s. seventeen eighteen nineteen. This is the fifth season that at this point. You're looking now. You beat the raiders. You beat the dolphins and those are the teams directly ahead of you right now for playoff spots. It's a different conversation. It's not that i don't think they can. And we're gonna go into these games looking at the match ups and saying okay. Slow the raiders. Run game down you make a couple of plays. They're not gonna kill you in their passing game. Why can't you beat the raiders. And then the dolphins you say hey to a rookie. Qb yesterday playing better but in denver. Why can't you so. That's we're still going to do it. The next couple sundays. It's just the way we're wired. But then after that they get the cheese and then they get the bills on the horizon. It's there's there's not much for the weary around here. Yeah then dates after that. Yeah these next. Two games are critical and these are two teams that they can't beat if they play. Well they'll get boy back. Hopefully they'll get kellyanne back. Shelby harris back hopefully is okay. Glasgow comes back. Yeah so yeah. I mean opt this. I'm optimistic just about every week. Because when you look at the breakdown and you look at the nfl the parody in this league look with the cowboys did yesterday against the steelers. Who saw that comes at time. This season the cowboys have two wins. Seven losses this is only the second time this season i pick against the cowboys in our pro. Football pimm challenge that we do on. Koa in the afternoon. And and i'm watching the game. As i'm getting ready to go into the studios i'm doing on my post game stuff and then i gotta go do the post game show and i'm like this is finally pick against the cowboys which goes against the way i was raised. Right when you're born in certain places are probably going to pick a team more than you. Otherwise would and so i picked was every week last week. I didn't against philli. They hung in that game. A half and then benvenuti turned independent nucci. Whoever that guy is and same thing yesterday they have the steelers dead to rights. And so i think that it's it's a crazy league right and every week these guys get paid. Just i'll tell you one other thing too as it relates to gambling or in this case fantasy you're affiliated with vandeweghe of a million dollar game every week so does draftkings so i put twenty bucks in because i want some money on the packers on thursday. I put twenty bucks in made a million dollar lineup right. I went matt ryan when i found out. Callahan wasn't in already. Knowing boy wasn't in no show. Bears put matt ryan. Julio jones and todd gurley. Well they had a nice games. I found out today that the millionaire maker the guy that won a million so they called the millionaire maker had drew. Lock jerry jeudy in his lineup. So you know it's one of those things where you want to you over. Think it but to your point on any given sunday the that game and the raiders is a rivalry game. I there's a good chance. I'm going to pick them to bounce back. Depending on where their health is and if fans plan and stuff like that i think they got a legit shot of winning this game against the raiders and the dolphins coming up. Yeah and so that. That was where i was going to end it now. You didn't really get to get any fun things in on the broadcast because of the nature of of the way. The game unfolded last week. But you had the note about bruce matthews. Be jake matthews dad. That's a pretty straightforward. Jake's made one pro bowl bruce's made fourteen and then did you know because i didn't know this to a couple of weeks ago that jessie tuggle the falcons great the linebacker. The plane eighties and nineties was grady. Jarrett's i had no idea and i stumbled across a couple of weeks ago. He went to five pro bowls in atlanta. Did you know that. I didn't know it until i did the game. Prep last week. I did know what. I never got to use that. During the game jake matthews. How often do you call a tackles name in a game. I happened to happen to call his name early and was able to get that little tidbit in and also interesting that That dave logan played with His brother clay sure. Who is jake. Matthews uncle yeah claiming the second reward. Elaine hall of famer. Yeah a great a great tidbit when games are going like that Try to make it as fun as you could make it. And i think that's one of the things about our broadcast that we do. Keep it entertaining even when your team is getting blown out in the first half. But there's just some things that you just gotta layoff you know because it's just not appropriate at the time. I just can't imagine if i if i could have been the color. Commentator during the broncos super bowl runs how much fun with that. Yeah you sound like scott zolak when you hear him yelling on those patriot lights. Those years right. That's the same thing you do. Find one the coolest note actually and it was only mentioned once. I think and i don't know if you don't feel comfortable bringing it up but i know you don't talk today very much on air on your show about him. Coaching jaden graham. Who i remember seeing them. The john lynch scholarship luncheon one. One of those. He played at cherry creek for dave went and played at. Yale is a backup tight. End for the falcons had a couple of tackles on kickoff coverage. And i know dave mentioned he said. I had the pleasure to coach jaden in in highschool at cherry creek. I just thought that that was really cool. Jk scott to another player last year for the packers. That dave coates. It's pretty wild. That dave does a good job of downplaying. And a lotta times. When it's someone that played against him like big mike panel for the for the chiefs. Who used to be with the jets. He mentioned what a good player he was at. Grandview things like that but it is cool when guys. Dave coach are on the field in a game and make a play that seems to happen. You know every couple of games are so there'll be somebody that makes a play that dave either coached or coached against it. And i love that. I love to be able to bring that up in a football game and it really also brings a real local connection to the broadcast because some people may not remember mike pinelli you know guys like that actually played at. I think grandview mike. I think key trail one of those kinds of underrates like that. That was a couple of weeks ago. But yeah it a great connection for fans to to hear that type of thing and i try to work in local connections whenever i can so i'll give you one. This is just a freebie so just free planning purposes week fourteen. They play december thirteenth day. Play game in carolina. There's a running back for the panthers. Not my davis. The kid that came back this week. His name's christian mccaffrey. He played his high school ball at valor and was pretty good here. His dad played receiver for the broncos. And then believe it or not actually sat in the chair that you sit in as the color analyst on the broncos radio network before you took over that job ed mccaffrey if you remember that name. So that's a good one. I worked aware of that. yeah week. Fourteen gershon mccaffrey worth noting local good local ties there. That could come up in the broadcast. I think ed is the coach at unc right now. So there's that yeah. I'm sure that will get worked in very pretty easily. Like captain obvious right. I would hope it would be like what's the point of even bringing that up. It would be funny if you if you do the game in. Don't mention it at all. Just treat them like another player. Everybody listening to dumb dave christians. Dad played for the denver broncos eight whenever him one more thing about the broadcast. Are kevin harlan's on on the tv call again this week and at least the afternoon shows isolated this and then i sent it around to everybody but albert alberto right after. He was drafted pronounced his name. The way you know someone asks hey. How do you pronounce your name. So we have it from zoom gall. I know they've played in the afternoon. Show because kevin in so many other announcers have been butchering it. Kevin came into the booth and asked you guys how to pronounce it. And i hadn't listened to the tv call. I heard he still butchered at that game the second week i guess i was the chiefs game so i was going to texted her. Email it to kevin this week and now without getting hurt. I guess i don't have to worry about that but That was gonna be my plan with with harlan this week on on the game to get that name right but yeah that was strange. I and i love kevin harlan east. Great what he does. He came into our booth Pre-game and he goes. Okay guys all right listen. How do you pronounce this guy's name. And i told him. I said well. This is how he pronounced way boone up and he went okay oak way. Bernama said yes. I said that's how he pronounces his name and he says okay. Okay okay buna yes okwuegbunam okay. And he walks out and then i heard he did during the game. He put his name again. So you know. He's he's not going to have to worry about that again. The rest of the season unfortunately for albert. I wonder. I wonder 'cause i'm going to try to talk to them later in the week. I wonder maybe. I will send it to him just to have it for posterity if he works it in about when they go through the injuries. Justin nail it. So that broncos all right kevin finally got it and he can redeem himself. You know he lived in kansas city for so many years. He lives north of green bay. Now i think ninety nine percent of the time had he stayed in kc in recent years he would have heard them talking about albert alvarado on the radio because he played his college ball at mizzou. So i'm gonna let you run. Because i already so away more your time though it gets dark early and you can't ride your bike in snowstorm sell. You're the best. And i will track you down next week.

Maybe university of phoenix global won't give him an honorary doctorate. All right tomorrow hoping to track down big al later in the week fingers crossed will go behind enemy lines with j t the brick usually get that done on reiter week and maybe kevin. Harlan will finally quit ducking me. Now i'm just kidding with kevin harlan during the game this weekend so It'll be good to talk to a fellow.

Imagine the gossips choza wearing turnips Willamette as you make yet another triumphant draft selection, imagine their tears forming a formidable pedal as you assemble an Unstoppable Force. The ultimate draft kit comes busting at the seams with fantasy. Goodness. When you enter the draft room, you'll feel as if you were a monstrous Beast let loose in a chicken coop walk over to automatic draft kent.com today. Welcome to the fantasy footballers podcast with you were home Andy Holloway Jason Moore and my cry from the food on the Run. Ladies and gentlemen boys and girls, welcome to the podcast the fantasy footballers podcast. If you are nasty, I am your host with the most. Of course. Mike the fantasy Hitman, right? Welcome into the podcast. This is quite possibly the strangest recording of this show that we have ever had as you may have noticed. I am hosting which means that Andy Holloway our fearless Captain is out for the day. His wife was came down with some migraine stuff wage and at these times kids are at home. That means home schooling needs to be done. So Andy is papa bear at home right now Jason on the other hand. He had to take care of another family members kids. So we are being as cautious as we can with everything that's going on. So he's at home. So I'm I'm at the table all by myself in the studio Jason more well, Into the show Welcome to the weirdness, you know, it's been weird even from my side but I did not really make the connection that you are literally at the page to see footballers Studio set table by yourself for the first time ever. That one person has yet there for a main show. I'm I'm glad I'm not you but you've got the you got Brooks you got Jeremy you got you got the producers extraordinary. I've got the support over here that I need. So everything will be 100 on this episode. I'm just letting everyone know that I'm free cone now and it's really really bizarre. You heard our great friend of the show David Attenborough gray front of the show letting everybody know about the ultimate draft kit. This thing is get updated. Look you're going to be drafting soon like a piece chicken ultimate draft kit. Com and do not forget a dollar from every utk goes to Saint Jude Children's Research Hospital. Jason we're going to get right into the quick question. Over the weekend there was a signing and this signing went to the Las Vegas Raiders pass-catching specialist at the running back position. Theo Riddick was bound by the Raiders. It gave me great. Joy because I was able to launch directly into a full troll campaign against Andy who had just made Josh Jacobs wage is my guy which a lot of the reason for being in all and Josh Jacobs is that his pass-catching should go up. So but we need to talk about this. It's very easy to say I'm going to ignore Theo Riddick completely. He has no impact but here's the thing. This is just another signing. This isn't the first so on this team. So they all took Josh Jacobs. They drafted Lynn Bowden Junior who was a converted wide receiver which to me says that guy's got decent hands for a running back. They re-signed Jalen Richard. If you don't remember this they had already added devontae Booker who has been used as a pass-catching specialist. They add Theo Riddick Jason. Are you shook off at all? Do you have any trembling going on for Josh Jacobs? I am not Chuck. I am not you're not rattle Riddick. And the reality is this what you just described says that they definitely want to in my opinion. I believe they want to get their running back more involved in the passing game. They're bringing in passing down back. Now the question is if that's true. Who is it? Is it Josh Jacobs or is it this hodgepodge of third-down Specialists? And that is obviously to be determined but I you know, if I had to bet if you said hey, here's a Benjamin. It's yours. You can double it or lose it. You've got a bet on does Theo Riddick make the roster for Week 1 I probably bet against her. I mean maybe but it's closed. My point is this is just a signing that worries people from pass-catching side. Josh Jacobs is a better pass-catching back than whoever is on the roster. I mean theoretically been great but he's twenty-nine years old. We haven't seen him since 2018 and when we did see him he seems like he had large step in so my my take on it is I don't think you can completely ignore the fact that the Raiders have added a bunch of depth now for pass-catching running backs not all of these guys are going to make the team. They won't all be on the roster when when the kickoff actually happens. I don't know who will be. I do side more on that. Josh Jacobs should be drafted where you are drafting him. It's not changing that out for me. But you gotta pay attention pay attention to Camp. Yeah, we can't forget though. You know you talk about okay, they Adeline bonjr but you know, he's a rookie they bring in theoretical hasn't done anything in the last couple of years, but they also lost DeAndre Washington who was a forty Target back glass, right? So it's not it's not just last year plus a bunch of running backs - nobody so, if we're if we're talking about the theoretical we gotta talk about the DeAndre Washington's sure you can follow the show on Twitter at the ffballers. You can follow Jason there at Jason FL I am dead. F f Hickman Andy is at Andy Holloway Instagram. Our personals are exactly the same but over on Instagram. It's instagram.com fantasy footballers. And on the YouTube if you want to watch the witness that is taking place right now. Well Jason quite ironically drinks out of his weirdo mug because this is the life we're living in youtube.com the fantasy footballers, Please Subscribe over there. Click the Bell. We got a lot of news and notes. So let's get into it news and notes from around the league off. All right. It's training camp time, which means that most of this news will not be of the positive nature because it's going to be injury-related but we will do our best to maintain a cheery disposition and figure out what to do with this information. Yeah, you should really give every note here as just real great news off. I'm not pretending it's good. I just I don't want but a cheery disposition, I guess what guess what Lions rookie D'Andre Swift suffered a leg injury at Thursday's practice man. Cheery disposition. Well, the lions running back situation is very bizarre There Was You know, the note that kerryon Johnson when he came back he was wearing the knee brace we have since been updated on that information and it's kerryon Johnson is making the decision to play in the brace now which to me is like this is perfectly fine. We've seen players decide wage. To wear a brace you have players who who say I need to get out of this thing immediately. It's it's hampering me but if kerryon Johnson Actually feels more secure in his knee with the knee brace on. I think it's a positive thing when that first report came out. I had already known at that. I did not know that he needed to come back out and re clarify but I when when I first saw that he was in the brace, it was somewhat common knowledge that. He is choosing to where the brake he's not injured. He's choosing to wear the brace and will continue to offer that's just how he wants to be and I don't know that that's great news from a mental standpoint that a player feels more comfortable wearing the brace than without but it is great news in the sense that he's not injured. He's not wearing a brace because of an injury. He's I mean, he's wearing a bright former injury, but not because of a current injury and we have seen that before Dallas Goddard Eagles tight end seconds back starting tight end. Who knows what Dallas got these days. He suffered a hairline fracture in one of his thumbs. So you'll have to monitor that situation the Eagles pass-catching options. Ping pong in all over where it was reported. Greg Ward is the current Target leader. Then the Jalen reagor hype was jumping on the back of a drag and yet again J. Do you have have you made any move to the Eagles pass-catchers? I have been rising in before this news. I've been rising on Zach ertz. Just realizing that every year he is undervalued and every year we said, well, it's got to take this that or the other for him to have that many targets again and every year it this that or the other happens, he's the new depth chart assassin know, you know o d g x goes down out Sean's not ready. Now now Dallas got hurt has you know, we don't know if he's going to have surgery. I don't I think he's going to be able to avoid it. But yeah, I mean I do I am more confident as we approach draft season in taking Zach ertz right next to mark. All right 49ers rookie wide receivers rookie rookie. Wide receiver. It's a tough one. Brandon. I uke are you looking left practice early suffering in a parent hamstring injury the tone when this came through was not positive. It was showing great concern for the rookie. Who was it sounded like you was taking over Camp. He was establishing himself as the man for the 49ers game are already dealing with a with an injury to last year's breakout. Rookie, Deebo Samuel the depth chart for the wide receiver position is now wide open if I you is I'm going to miss time my take on this is Kendrick Bourne is a player who is not named very frequently for Fantasy purposes, but he is not one to watch the wide receiver position. Of course George Kittle is the man in San Francisco. But if you're looking for now, we're a late-round chance dead. From the San Francisco wide receivers to me. It's Kendrick Bourne j d o r r u in on that at all or is it just I'm not going to draft anybody from there. I'm not really in on that. I don't know if it's I'm not driving anybody, you know if I'm late in the draft and I'm looking for some kind of PPR reliable depth. I do think Trent Taylor is someone that can be involved but I mean if we joked about this on slack, but if the world of twenty-twenty continues we could see Dante Pettis be the oh my goodness lies guy. So because there's Pettis and born and grew up Taylor. I'm pretty much not looking for any of them and don't forget. I know this is another crazy name to throw out there, but they did also sign Jordan Reed and I think we're pulling off it would have taken a loss of a few receiving options for him to actually get put into the scheme, but they have lost a few receiving options. So this is George Kittle and boss. To me. I like to Jordan Reed take Rams head coach, of course, of course you do. Oh did you say something good about Jordan Reed. I'm in that's on brand. Mike wage. He's good man. When he saw the feelings good royalties out of the Rams running back. Darryl Henderson suffered a mild hamstring injury the team hopes to have them back from week one. But this this is this is interesting because it Burger gives cam Akers just that more much more opportunity to establish himself as the number one running back in this offense. I believe we all were on the side leaning that Acres would take over the job after they they spent a day to pick on him. Are you what are your what are the birds telling you Jason? Are you looking at Akers. Did you move them up a couple of spots Malcolm Brown has he has been getting some play with the ones as well. Do you have any Clarity on the Rams backfield? Well first Malcolm Brown is so incredibly disrespected by fantasy. I mean, he's under threat you can go off 25 round leagues is undrafted which makes no sense cuz he will touch the ball. He won't be in the offense, but I I get it we're looking for the upside. We're looking for the The League winner or at least the weekly starter and this is great news for sneakers. You know, sometimes it takes an injury ahead of you to give confidence for Fantasy purposes that you are going to as a rookie get first-team reps and get in. You know through training camp that's what happened for Clyde edwards-helaire to Vault so high and if Cam Akers is now soaking up first-team reps and getting that experience. It just means that if he were to take over as the main guy in this backfield, it could happen much earlier. In fact, if if Henderson isn't ready for week, right you could see something big that doesn't go away song and we're all big fans of Cam Akers Talent. He was, you know, after Clyde edwards-helaire. He was actually the higher running back for my rookies ahead of Jonathan Taylor when I initially made my rankings and and this I think could put him back in that spot Chargers wide receiver. Mike Williams has been diagnosed with a shoulder sprain. He is considered week-to-week. This is actually positive news because that's when the injury initially happened. There was great concern that his collar bone would be broken. The reports are that it is intact. So we'll see what happens with Mike Williams is this song Anything for you Jay for early-season does Keenan Allen get more targets? Are you more comfortable going in on Hunter Henry as one of the mid-to-late UR mid-to-late round tight and pics off. I mean look if Mike Williams is not there Week 1 this is going to mean more targets for Keenan Allen and Hunter Henry. I'm not changing my draft strategy tho outside of saying I am no longer drafting Mike Williams because there's a a very realistic chance. It's not there Week 1 and I'm not going to draft a Mike Williams that I can't even find out week want to if he breaks out unless it's a basketball league. He's off my board, but I'm not adjusting the other two, even though they could have a small bump for a week or two some good news here Andy Reid head coach for the Kansas City Chiefs to get confirmed that Tyreek Hill will return practice in a few days. Sammy Watkins the Lizard King himself. He also turned to practice from the groin injury and Nick Chubb running back for the Cleveland Browns game. Has cleared the concussion protocol he will return to practice Melvin Gordon also returned to practice. So look we found it. We were on a stretch here, but then we got to bring this one up cold side in Jack Doyle. He has been sidelined with a neck injury wolf. We'll see about that. I have been I have been you you know what I have been 1,000% out on the possibility of Trey Burton like a dummy making in Iraq. I don't know why's for this offense. But I throw a matter of happenstance Trey Burton has been taking the reps with the ones because I'm a Colts. They did just reactivate Mo alie-cox Gigantor from the active p u p list but Trey Burton might be a thing. He he might be a thing. I don't know. He could be a top-10 tight end. I mean, oh no because it takes because it's right if he ends up with six touchdowns. He could have that but I do think he is going to be utilized in that pass-catching roll. He's been with Frank right before he is healthy. I mean, that's the thing is it was like, well, he wasn't even healthy when he signed and so he's injured. He's just a backup guy. That's not going to be used he's dead. None of that makes sense. He's actually a healthy human being playing football for this team running with ones. He has a history with the head coach the you know, all the Jack Doyle love because of Philip Rivers also applies to trade Burton. I still have Jack Doyle had I haven't I haven't changed anything in my rankings based on this current Jack Doyle injury, but I still have Jack Doyle and trade birth only four spots away from each other in my rankings. I think most people are a part that is ridiculous. There is a little bit of hype here for running back and running back Bryce love look, you know that I'm going to how does that make even an Antonio Gibson truther but I am also a fair journalistic reporter bringing you the news head coach Ron Rivera gushing that Bryce love can be an every-down back. I will say I was following Washington's birthday. reporters at Washington of talking about practice today I didn't see anything about price love in there. They were talking about Antonio Gibson's running with the ones are getting sharing time with the ones that he's he's not the only guy they're talking about is JD mckissic and Antonio Gibson on the field at the exact same time for Washington. So it's wild you can take your shot here who you think is going to break out from Washington. I think it's dead. I do believe it is a smart decision for Fantasy to grab one of these players. It's going to be Antonio Gibson for me. I don't mind at all if you want to take the chance on Brice love God love is is the draft the draft cost is much much lower on Brice Love J. Do you have an inkling which way you're going if you're if you're taking one of the guys from Washington, yeah, I I do completely agree with you that it is worth taking someone here. If you're looking for a home run pick, I believe the chances are still on the Antonio Gibson side to actually succeed. That's the guy off. That this regime drafted and that's the guy who when you when you're not talking about Coach speak, but what happened during training camp as far as beat reporters saying this guy did X Y or Z. You keep hearing about Gibson busting off touchdown runs in Camp. I haven't heard anybody saying Bryce loves just been electric, but the coach is saying he could I mean I will I will see us on the beat reporter side Bryce love is, you know, often running ahead of of Gibson. So I have no problem if someone wants to take a shot very late. It costs you nothing Bryce love is pretty much undrafted right now, you know, that's that's fine. Here's one who I'm not taking. I'm not taking the presumed starter. I'm not drafting Adrian Peterson who I think if we had to push rods on who has the most fantasy points at the end of the year from this group. The highest odds is Adrian Peterson, but that doesn't really matter for Fantasy if you know if it's a guy wage Is every week the running back eighteen nineteen and by the end of the season ends up with a good total but didn't really help you on a week twice right off. So I would avoid personally I would avoid Adrian Peterson. But if you want a plotting guy who's going to get a lot of touches then he's your he might I mean that needs to be seen of the way that Rivera and Scott Turner have ran an offense in recent history that we'll see how many carries Adrian Peterson can actually get if they're throwing the ball more. But like we said nebulous situation, but that's where you want to take your chances because that's where a breakout running back and come from before we get into the mailbag this episode of the fantasy footballers is brought to you by head and shoulders and Walmart when guys are confident they don't settle for anything less than a hundred Jason.

I like it. All right, let's get into a voicemail. What's going on? Fantasy footballers my big fan 7 overall pick for p p r Davante Adams or Derrick Henry. Appreciate you. All right one thousand yard. All PPR. Do you take the the hook the outlier Derrick Henry the man who gets it done for Fantasy purposes without a huge pass-catching resume or do you lean in to point everytime Davante Adams catches the ball because it's going to be a lot off season J. You're on the clock 107 PPR. Who are you drafting? See, I'm I know who I'm drafting but I feel bad about it. I think that that's strange. You should feel bad about your first round pick. Well, I feel bad about my answer to the question. I don't feel bad about my first round selection. My point is in a full PPR Davante Adams. I mean he could he could very like the name of Sir Dreher, you know, almost never happened before type of two hundred targets right in a season that kind of an outlandish number that would be fantasy goal isn't good enough that would be whatever they were mine on on Pandora in Avatar. That's the substance that 200 targets brings home. But the reality is people remember Avatar. Well, yeah, I mean, I know there's like a thousand sequels coming out, but people remember well, apparently, yep. You could have gone with like vibranium and then I would have been all over it. But like I don't know what they're mining in Avatar. Okay, so it's a little bit all reference. But just wait a couple years and when when all of the Avatar movies are come back out and be like damn references even though I don't remember the name of the mineral anyways, my point is Adams has grown now, but I've talked about this a lot. I really love the wide receivers that are available in the 3rd 4th 5th 6th round and I hate the running backs there and I I believe that Derrick Henry is phenomenal. He's worthy of a topic. He you know, sure maybe he needs 18 total touchdowns to be a star but I am very well could have 18 plus total touchdowns. So I'm going to take the running back there if it's my team, but I do feel like The safest pick is Davante Adams. Where do you if you're in a full bar and you're on the clock and those are the two players are choosing between which way do you guy I believe I'm going wage if those are the two players. I'm choosing between I do believe that I'm going to go with Davante Adams because in PPR he is Elite. He he's he's top-tier for me and I'm gonna get a I'm still going to get a great running back on the on the way back who he may not be in the class of Derrick Henry, but I believe that the point separation of starting with Davante Adams is where I am actually go we have an update Jason. Oh it was in fact called unobtainium. I forgot you how my God want to know. I did remember I will say this what I remembered about. It was that it was a really stupid mayor. It's unobtanium, Cameron. This mineral is week. It's unobtainable. What should we call it? Yes, exactly unobtanium. It says how difficult it is to collect as many like give you a back story with with no Exposition. Look, you know, the value is set immediately. This is not zinc what's enquiries? I don't know unobtanium. Holy crap. That's valuable. All right moving on this questions from Instagram from piano Paul. Would you trade Chimera for Club Edwards a layer and a half Point Dynasty Saints running back Camara brand new rookie Chiefs running back Clyde edwards-helaire. Who'd would you rather have? Well my answer changed with the last word because I'm you know, I've been in drafts. I'm taking Alvin Kamara ahead of Clyde edwards-helaire. But not in a dynasty cuz this is a dynasty League where you can I mean if in a redraft you can make the argument that you can take or you should take quite Edwards a layer over album Khmer. I don't think you should I'm taking Chimera but the argument at least exists the floor and the ceiling are very similar for both of these players. I trust wage Camaro has already shown in the NFL and I trust his touchdown prowess. But now if you're talking about okay, Alvin Kamara is going to be a free agent here. Where where is he playing is he played for the Saints is Breeze there. Is he changing teams as he do they have to bring someone else in I mean, I don't know but here's what I do know quite Edwards a layer is on the best offense for the next month. I'm going to say ten years because that's how long Pat my home is under contract and that doesn't mean Glen Edwards layers going to be great for today Clyde Edwards. It was a first-round pick. So you're talking. Five years is the expectation from the team. Yeah, I'm certainly getting quite a quite Edwardsville are all right off of Instagram. Keeper League. This is from Hunter saffell. Keeper League Jason Kyler Murray in the 13th or DJ Chark shark Wing duck in the seventh month. So tremendous tremendous value on Kyler Murray mom or also on DJ Chark, but Kyler Murray, we are in everyone should know if Oakland we have a big lineup of shows this week. We're going to be talking breakouts boss value sleepers all those really fun to talk about players. And in the breakouts. These are two guys that could be discussed Kyler Murray DJ Chark. They're awesome. I think Kyler Murray does break out but DJ Chark in the seventh that's not a huge value on him. It's you know, it's around maybe by the time draft season comes if we've pushed his value up higher. Maybe it's two rounds of value. Not near what the value is on calamari, but I'm still going to take the wide receiver over the quarterback. All right, because I can replace Kyler. Are you doing the same or are you taking the immense value on college is rough, but my belief and Kyler Murray breaking out I even projected as my number three quarterback all the signs are there for for him to take the next step? It is awful. It is very difficult to pass on the last two years fantasy, you know, if you've gotten the late-round super yes quarterback, it's been awesome. Yeah, which is and you can't do that with Tyler cuz he's not a later on course. I was going to say this is the bizarre scenario where you actually can draft Kyler Murray where people were able to draft Lamar Jackson last year. She man, I'm probably still going to stick with DJ. I'm switching you're going to know I I am switching and we we talked ourselves to the reality that you could take the chance on wage. Or if you want DJ Chark instead of getting them for the six draft draft them in the you're in the seventh draft em in the 6th pull the trigger a little early if if you really want him. You can't even though they you can find plenty of other quarterbacks of the 13th round that are fine for your team. You can't really find a quarterback in that range that has the probability of the massive step forward. I mean, you could hope that if you're taking Matthew Stafford, he does right did the first half of last year but I mean we've seen Matthew Stafford for many many many years and he's never had a season that was just sixteen games of the first half of last year. I don't know why we would think that would happen and you know, whatever. This is your seven your eight. Next question is off of the website. Jason the guy that you were obsessed with Miles Sanders PPR running back Rusty wants to know I can keep either miles Sanders or Aaron Jones. Now you've talked about being risk-adverse with Miles Sanders simply because the other running backs in that range are fantastic and we're not sure what's going on with the miles Sanders injury. I don't I don't have any updates perhaps you have an update on Miles. But you know, I have tempered on Aaron Jones. So which guy are you going to keep? Yeah, I haven't seen an update. I don't think we'll get an update until he's back out there. We just know he's week to week and nobody seems concerned. You've brought along they're not making any transactions. It seemed really truly does not seem concerned. I would I would a red flag would go up if they go and sign another running back right now, which I have not done. This is an easy miles Sanders picked. Okay while I I do love Aaron Jones Has Talent, he's a he's a tier below. So I'm not you know, if if I'm looking at Miles Sanders or or Kenyan Drake mm that I love that are going near each other in a draft. I'm going to go with Drake but there are too many worries with Aaron Jones on the touchdown regression on AJ Dillon AKA AJ villain off that. Thank you. That concerned me so I'm taking miles Sanders here I'm taking Miles Sanders. I think I'm very often because I'm I don't know what to do with Aaron Jones. I was so confident for so long and then the bulb it's in the hamstrings in the quad start infecting me Jason and I don't know what to do about it. Yeah. I mean here's here's the thing. The Green Bay Packers offense could sputter just in general. I mean, we we saw the Warriors when Davante Adams went down to Children's good. He's so good. Yes, Aaron Jones is good. But if the offense as a whole is dead average and they're not scoring just as a team as many touchdowns as they were before and the 5-yard in goal-line Opportunities. Go to villain then it's you know, it's going to be because it took us up on a recent show. I think maybe it was our live event on Friday the fact that Aaron Jones was, you know, a top 3 running back last year and had the was it 18 19 touchdown? It was unbelievable and with all of that. He had so many Bus games that hurt you in Venice. Sure. He had complete Disappearing Acts that you don't usually see from a top-six fantasy brought back. Now if you dial some of that other stuff back, but you still have the volatility. I want a guy in Miles Sanders who has the chance to get 320 touches and just be consistent in his bad weeks for my fantasy roster. Yeah that they're finally got four balls blink point point point and you know had enough yards. It just was many's you know, the running back 16 on his down week versus running back 50 on his down week. I checked with the computer because I couldn't do it myself and you are correct. We're going with Miles Sanders from YouTube. Brian wants to know how do you guys feel about running back Chris Thompson? I think he has a chance to return some odd fantasy value in Jacksonville, especially as the team passing Downs back J. What's your temperature check on Chris Thompson right now? Chris Thompson is a is a wonderful super late last round pick especially not especially only in PPR or half PPR leagues. He has bought never been able to stay healthy, but when he's been out there, he has been a valuable fantasy asset, you know, A, lot's been made about how much Leonard fournette caught the bulb last year or I guess better to be said how much he was targeted. Sure not well, he got a constable. Yeah, but he was so inefficient with his receiving work. But the point is that the Jaguars and Gardner Minshew threw the ball to the running back. So there I mean that's going to happen this year. They're not going to abandon that they're going to keep throwing the ball and checking it down now, maybe it's all Leonard fournette again, but maybe Joe Gruden who brought over his favorite pass-catching back as going to I don't know use the guy he brought over so it's who is super efficient at that? Yes. Chris Thompson is a incredible pass-catching running back wage. Jason over his time in Washington sent, you know his third year. That's when he actually really started to place since then he has averaged. Oh fifty five targets, even with all those games missed 55 targets. Yes, I agree with Jason that I think the Chris Thompson is until a late-round PPR running back. And if he is the to me, I know it's wild but he is the biggest pause for Leonard drafting Leonard fournette off early because Leonard fournette needs those targets May needs the opportunity. All right. This next question is from Ella off of YouTube who is more likely to finish as a top-10 quarterback Drew lock or Joe burrow. Oh, this is interesting. Yes, man. What a what a what a fascinating question. So I'm glad this question was brought up. If you follow me on Twitter have seen me talk about this this weekend. I'm not sure if you're aware my I believe I know what you're talking about of I was I was calling you out on Jerry jeudy in the office of you saying I you believe in Jerry jeudy, you fully believe in the town and I have no problem with that take at all and your you feel like he is going to be excellent in the NFL and I said, okay. Well, let's do this algebra here Jerry jeudy, if you believe that he is going to be great in the NFL add that to Courtland Sutton who is great in the NFL. He is home. He broke out last year. A+ bead now now now it's not just a quarterback sustaining one, excellent fantasy wide receiver. He is sustaining to giving him some intrinsic value. What what are the results from your Drew lock Deep dive? Yeah. So I went this weekend. I watched the film because I'll be honest. I didn't really remember, you know that it was the end of the season he played only five games and we're watching all these games at once and so I don't feel like I hear the winner Jason that's what he was. Yes foreign one. I'm aware of that ties the franchise record for most wage by a rookie quarterback. Oh, I didn't know that's what John Elway I did not know that as well until I was watching the film in the commentators were talking about it, but I was impressed. I was impressed by Drew lock them in a way that I said what a star but definitely in a way where I said this guy's capable of getting great weapons the ball he is absolutely he's got he's got a rocket arm. Not afraid to go for you know the go for a really big play and he's mobile you can get out of the pocket now to Circle back to the original question though about him versus Joe burrow and who is more likely to finish as a top ten quarterback. I see Drew lock as someone who is still not going to be a little bit least. He will be utilized to get his great weapons the ball. I think he'll succeed. They're you know, I've got him over 4,000 yards and 25 touchdowns. That's a solid season but to get to be top ten you have to dominate you have to truly go out there and have a ton of rushing yards or a ton of touchdowns easy. And if I had to pick one the film on Joe burrow, they both have both of these quarterbacks have great weapons, but the Russian nobility while Drew lock does have some I think people really severely underestimate wage. How much Joe burrow ran the ball in college how much was designed and when she picked up on each run his rushing ability is is even better than Drew locks. So I'm going to take Joe burrow wage as far as who has the higher ceiling for a true breakout even even in his rookie season, I would take goodness gracious. I will take I'll take Drew lock here. AJ Green not practicing again still not practicing and when you say again Mike. Are you saying like this year as well as last year's just pour it on board on the old man ridiculous. I hope you're listening very important question from Jared on the website. Would you be able to accept any of your kids becoming fans of a football team not named the Arizona Cardinals? Well, yes, and no I looked I mean we we dealt with this this last year. My my youngest Isaac for some reason said he is a 49ers fan and then the some reason it's probably because they went to the Superbowl and you know, you get a lot of publicity 9 or no. And so what I what I have concluded what I've told my children is often. Well, they do not have to love the Arizona Cardinals. That's that's their their own man. They're going to grow up and they're going to make their own choices. I'll try to guide them to good decisions But ultimately they're going to have to always being brought up in a good decision exactly. I'm going to want to teach them how to make good decisions, but they can come up with the answers in their life. So I told them they can they don't have to be a Cardinals fan. They could be a fan of am not in the NFC West. Yeah, but I will not stand for them to pick the Niners or the Seahawks or the rims. That's just illegal. Yeah, I've got about I've dealt with it as well my dog. He was into football. He picked up on the he was a big Broncos fan for a while. Oh, what a great. What a great conference. That is yes. I mean, I I allowed it to happen. We're took him there. I think we are getting in there. But unfortunately the people loves Lamar Jackson like he's all in on the barge acts of which it's not unfortunate to be in on him, but he's now dead of a massive Ravens fan. So hey, that's great. You gotta have you gotta have a fan in each conference the issue with our children being Arizona Cardinals fans and why that's why both of us have the experience of them picking other teams is because they're young and the last few years the Arizona Cardinals have just fair hard to root fair fair fair. Just a couple more questions before we wrap up the show from YouTube. Yo yo yo yo, yo, yo trade cut Alexander Madison, Tony Pollard, Boston Scott noun Let's go. I think this is a interesting place to jump in with this information because I I wasn't sure how to take it Adam schefter. Said if this is just him speaking personally if Dalvin cook doesn't have a contract before the season starts a new contract extension schefter issue is saying he will have hesitation to draft him in fantasy football schefter's a big fantasy football player. He's also a big time big wig reporter getting all the news. Do you does this this face? Go ahead you this this is based on the new CBA. There were all the reports of Dalvin cook was going to hold out that he was dead is not true. Well sure but there were a lot of people around him near him saying that he was going to hold out now he didn't but then this CBA makes it off where you can't really hold out a camp or you're going to lose so much money, then it's not worth. I mean, the only reason you're holding out is to get more money. So if now it guarantees you less money you don't do that job. But the change here and I do think we will see this. I don't think it's going to come from Dalvin cook, but I do think we will see a player in the future as as players are adapting to this new CBA off the the power goes back to the players soon as the season kicks off so they could be there for camp and then hold out from the actual games just like they used to be able to hold out and I think that is what schefter's based on his fear on is that the power goes back to the player as soon as the ball is kicked if they want to hold out that's when they'll do it. And so he has worried because I you have the ability to do it then but now and cook has been talking about week one Le'Veon Bell talked about it too. Sure. But let me on bail was not talking about Iraq while he was in Camp in. Okay, so that's that's a wide difference to me. Le'Veon Bell was you know saying all the things he could get his contract wage. And they've broken off contract negotiations. And Alvin is still there. Still saying he's focused on week one. So back to the question Madison don't Boston Scott Tony Perez keep trade cut off. So you've got two guys here that presumably are not going to do much without an injury to the starter in Alexander Madison with Alvin cook and Tony Pollard behind Ezekiel Elliott, Boston Scott seems like a low upside but High floor PPR guy who will be involved in the offense no matter what But I'm going to cut it. Sorry Boston. I I think you're low upside. I would rather have Madison or Pollard and I think you've gotta go Madison due to not just a contract issue but also the injury history of Dalvin cook and the higher probability that Madison has to start games over Tony. So, I'm going to trade Pollock. I see I see at the exact same way. Alexander Madison is the long-term hold here. You just we don't know we don't often cook is going to be back or not. But if Dalvin cook moves on to a different team Alexander Madison will be the starter for the Minnesota Vikings and will it'll be fun to talk about him next off-season. All right, Jim. We're going to get you out of here on this one. This is a this is brutal. This is absolutely brutal for me here because this is off of YouTube. We have a half Point PPR question Terry McLaurin or DJ Chark greetings from Brazil. Wow, the I see what it's brutal for you. These are these are my guys. All right, DJ Chark or Terry McLaurin long argued data back. Okay. Well, let me tell you who you should draft between those two guys is DJ Chark. We've seen a little bit more on the NFL field from charge than a McLaren. I believe that the Jaguars will score more points than the Washington football team this year. I think Gardner Minshew is a better quarterback at least for Fantasy purposes than Dwayne Haskins and we saw shark be a top 10 wide receiver before his injury last season is coming into year three. I mean look, obviously we all like both of these players, but I'm going to take charcoal ahead of McLaren. I don't know man getting both. That's my my recommendation is they are both excellent candidates for massive breakouts this year want to thank pristine auction wage. Look pristine auction, That's where we get. All our sports memorabilia and got a feature look they have they have things for everybody for every budget. You want to get a Blake. Jarwin Jersey for like twenty bucks.
