Lyft beats revenue estimates but stock falls
"But let's begin with lift because shares are in the red after posting results for more would drove the quarter. Let's go to dear Bosa who's been listening into the conference call. And his more more with us now deirdre Brian. I have been listening in you know in the ride sharing space. We've moved from having a path to profitability to who can shorten that path by the most most uber of course upping the ante last week when it said it would be adjusted EBA profitable by the end of this year earlier than expected. Investors may be looking for lift to push up. It's time line as well from the expected. Late twenty twenty target that outlined previously. Now when I spoke to CFO. Brian Roberts earlier today. He said that they would be addressing that timeline on on the call but so far and we're about thirty minutes then we haven't heard anything we'll certainly let you know if that does happen. So far Logan Green has said that lift is simply making progress rests on that path to profitability. And how to get there have lesson. We expect to deliver continued strong. Top Line growth in twenty twenty well also making progress on our pastor profitability as we've discussed on prior calls their three key themes that we're focused on I is product innovation second is profitable growth grow and third is operating now cfo. Brian Roberts has been speaking on the call for about ten minutes already and still no mention of name any change to that profitability timeline. So despite beat on the top and bottom lines Brian as you noted shares are down more than four percent in the after hours. Remember it did rise on the back of Uber's burnings but it did move up. It's time line now. Another key question. That's likely to be asked during the Cuna. Portion is the impact of regulations while Uber has been making changes to its a platform. Lift is observing them. It says and focusing on a ballot initiative that could exempt them from the GIG economy law now is eighty five which could require the right turn. Companies to treat drivers as employees versus independent contractors. Roberts telling me earlier that the company's twenty twenty guidance assumes the status quo like. I said Brian that call also going. So we'll continue to monitor and bring you anything if it changes the direction of stock price and the after hours. Yeah industrious. Don't like it in the early reaction long way to go to your thank you very much. which kind of dumb luck about it? Okay so you've got the lift CEO talking up a couple of things. One of them is profitability. Wouldn't you like all three to be profitability profitiblity profitability and profitability and. They trust us so few quarters ago. Listen I think this was a very good quarter. I think the reason the stock is down. It's because it's gone from thirty eight and a half to fifty three and a half basically in a straight line and I think people are taking profits on the back of this if you look though terms of margins contribution margin fifty four percent at this time last year forty five and a half percent all the metrics are better and quite frankly scared people might be the full year guide but I think this is a stock that probably got ahead of it's skis in in terms of the stock price. Going back and fill and again. I've said this for a while. I don't think it's going back to that. Sixty three level that it failed at a while back but I think the high fifties absolutely absolutely in the cards. Well more focus on profitable rides whether it's airport drives and whatnot are certainly something to talk about but to to get away from structural profitability issues. That we thought were a a big part of this transportation as a service sector out of the gates. I is crazy to think that suddenly we could've gone from a place and the stocks representative up twenty four percent year today Up Twelve and a half percent into this print over the last five days. It's not a huge surprise when you don't get this renewed kind of fuel for the fire profitability to be clear. They were ahead of Uber to talk about profitability are ahead of Uber. They have a simpler business model but profitability and rationalization in terms of the competitive landscape between these two folks. I'm not sure is is here yet. You Know Karen Listen. They are domestic. Tim's point they do not have the food delivery business. They're trying to remain stable but you look the analysts community. There's thirty eight analysts have covered. This why I don't know but there's thirty. The high price forget the high price target is ninety. The lowest thirty five the median is sixty fifty five year. Analysts community has no visibility into fifty five dollar price difference in targets. That is interesting. I think when they're talking about profitability ability. I think they're getting to break even as the sort of I measure of profitability. And then I think talking about margins is how do they grow this business and grow the margins regions. I actually like lift. I agree with guy. Had it not been up so much into earnings. I think this would have been an okay of Eric Berry. Okay we'll see what he says on the call about. Does the timeline change any. That's going to be really important but I actually like it. For the reason do send it is a cleaner sort of story than Uber. Yeah I would just mention this though you know. Obviously it's a two horse race. As far as the product is concerned. I think the last thing you really WanNa do at this point this far away from profitability to see these companies tripping over each other to kind of get ahead ahead of their skis to kind of get too aggressive on their guidance because to your point about profitability and visibility and investor visibility and then obviously the analysts community. I mean at the end of the day you could. You could obviously Drive a truck through that sort of sentiment. Let's they've laid out there guidance when they're going to get adjusted adjusted whatever that means because that really doesn't mean profitability but I think investors want the path towards and. I'll just say kind of the last point here is that this stock broke out of that. Fifty levels been below there for five months or so I think investors are comfortable on how these guys are going to get to that twenty twenty twenty one guidance. I don't think you want to see them. Get too far ahead of it. It's weird world guy down because it is he's got this discussion. We talk about this company monitoring we gotta talk about Lift Tesla. It might have heard about sure mentioned a few times. Everybody talks in the bull. Case of Tesla's autonomous cars. They're going to drive US around. We won't need ridesharing during or if we do it will probably be in some sort of Tesla or tesla related. Maybe or maybe that's the existential risk to Ford and GM reason why those stocks traded at horribly over for the last six or seven years. I don't know I think you make a fair point. I don't think it's the death knell for the Uber's analysts. I think you have to decide which is better which is better situated. It has a better platform right now and I continue to say it's left now again. I think the run-up it's been such that. It makes sense. People are taking profits but you just look at the numbers. The numbers are improving. You're we're talking about thirty six percent revenue growth quarter over quarter and you over here something about twenty eight twenty nine percent. I think that's an interesting playwright here and again forty eight and a half this way you get back into name but we think about you. It's interesting you bring in Tesla Valuation. Because at least with Tesla there's all kinds of pie. In the sky you could incorporate in terms of their data terms of battery pack. This is ultimately. It's a service revenue dynamic for them to get to that Q.. Four twenty twenty one EBA positive they're gonNA have to grow trip growth by twenty percent. They're going to to grow our poo or average revenue per rider. So I changed it around a little bit by fifteen percent but that's pretty straightforward. It's not a case where you can take evaluation evaluation begin to start extrapolating all kinds of growth prospects. I don't think you can let me make one other point. We're talking about a company that you said yes. They went public at seventy two bucks is trading trading at fifty two bucks. They put three billion dollars in cash on their balance sheet so that actually preserve their ability to kind of get to whatever those targets are to get profitable and the the other thing. I'll just say you talk about data talk about an existential threat to the car makers so it's going to have to make the cars that are going to be autonomous on lifting Uber's network so so this company you know people talk about one was apple by Tesla this. This company will get bought by some day by a massive data company. It could be an apple it could be a google could matter what could be tesla who knows I'm just saying if you're looking at vertical integration. Just say at this market cap with that cash position if they can accelerate their profitability At some point this is not going to be a thirteen billion dollar enterprise company. I'm not sure if you're aware that this guy a dummy actually was working lift at some point guy. I wonder what the whole talk talk about. Employees actually being drivers under any thought about coming back to this quarterbacks. They've called me a number of times early drivers. Hopefully the crack staff halfback footage is wonderful. There you looked at me with the whites loves now. That's what we call white glove service. Bryant wouldn't genius. Sounds like you've just great but at the
Browns trade DE Ogbah to Chiefs for S Murray
"We got some breaking news. We've got a trade live on the Browns have traded. Emmanuel AGA do the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for safety. Eric Murray manual by nice nice pick up by the chiefs, a guy that took your line there. A guy that that PF effort instance, always loves Aqaba because he's very much a hurry not quarterbacks hits or sack guy. But he's going against the Ron and get some pressure. Like he's starting NFL player, and they need some of those on there. They were trying to move the Browns also cut Derek kindred the safety today because he started to cost too much for what he was because of some sort of contract stipulation. But I thought they were gonna go out and get Eric berry potentially. So they still might do. They might Dorsey burn the phone lines with his old with his old front office group here Eric Murray's played a lot too. So that's the guy I think that they need would not trade odd. But I wouldn't think unless it's for someone that they believe is going to get on the field for them. Because I like what was Murray's played a lot of snaps for a horrible second. I'm not saying he's great. I'm saying they probably see them as having a role that I didn't understand the the need to get rid of odd buds. Good to have with defensive

"So where do you look at teams you look at teams with a lot of cap space who can afford to maybe pay a little bit more for two years of an above average linebacker, and it's easy to look right through the Indianapolis Colts in Cleveland Browns because these teams with chiefs connections of who probably know just in Houston, and they have a lot of cap despair. Pete Sweeney of Arrowhead pride. Pete. Why wouldn't they just wait for the chiefs to release them? Do you really think there's a bidding war happening for Justin Houston? I think the trade happens. If one of these teams don't wanna take the chance of him going elsewhere. I mean, I think you know, I don't wanna look at Justin Houston say there's no value to him anymore. There certainly is it's just chief can't afford what he brings to the table for the amount that pay. So a team would trade him. If they say, it is, you know, this is just hypothetically fade is a race between the Browns and the colts, for example. Maybe you make the trade. So that John Dorsey doesn't get a shot at him. If if you're Indianapolis, and maybe that's worth a sixth round, pick fifth round pick to you. And you know, people look at these draft picks, and you know, the Chiesa hit on some fifth found picks hit late in the draft. I mean Termonde Smith last year became your your, ticker Turner. I mean, I know it's not a murder, but that's your ticket Turner and think he did a pretty good job. So these are there still value there. And and again, the value of these other teams is to send a pic. So he. Doesn't end up. Elsewhere. Let's get to what really gets Pete emotional. When you hear everything that we heard yesterday from Andy Reid about Eric berry. The fact that he is not going to get surgery was which absolutely makes zero sense to me if he's going to be on the team next year, and how that's going to be any different than what they dealt with last year because he had a lot of time off and he still had problems with the pain. What are you here? And what is your first thoughts? When you hear the fact that Eric berry is just not going to have surgery. I find that in this situation, and as it started out really unpopular and as time has gone on. It's it's it's come around come back around to me. I just think that Eric berry is in more control of the situation. People think like if a player doesn't want to have surgery the team could recommend it the doctors recommend it. If at the end of the day he doesn't want to have the surgery because he's not feeling comfortable about his body. He doesn't have to do. So I think that's what happens in the situation. He wants to rested more, and what's horrible about that. And what his is completely silly about that we've already tried this thing before I mean, we tried to it before you rested for more than one hundred days for mid August to mid December. And that didn't work and to go against what had to have been ordered. If you have anything going on with this has formerly like there was a clear problem that probably surgery could fix the go and say, okay, I'm not going to get the surgery. I'm going to be good. We're gonna try the same thing that didn't work last year. I mean that to me is a little bit. Selfish. Like, I I don't I don't and people people get me on Twitter. Like, oh, you hate Eric berry. I don't hate Eric berry. I hate the past that he gets in Kansas City for some for another part of his career that has nothing to do with this part..

"Inside the slant and gets it sounded a fifteen got halfway home only because I didn't wanna play the birkhead touchdown again. But that play Overbury and even when robo calls it out somebody said rebel did a great job of that all game. And I agree. But that that was like you just kind of at that point thought there. They're just not going to they're not going to be able to stop this. This this overtime Dr Tony Romo man crazy because everyone was so fascinated with them as a player great quarterback. But really he's almost better at being an analyst in the quarter. Was second. I don't wanna be this. I told you so guy. So I don't I'm not going to go too far down this road. But the Eric berry situation this year was a debacle. And that was a cap on your, you know, your negative proverbial cherry on just what has been a disaster this year. A handled by the team a disaster. Not revealing really anything if he goes and gets surgery now, I mean, we knew that he was injured what he started having these problems August eleventh, he wasn't himself. There's a case of even be made. You take him off the field in this game. And you might have a little bit of a different game plan and other players who have been turning it on maybe would have had more success in that situation. The chiefs released video and everyone's all excited, and I told you guys, let's wait and see what we have here before we get overexcited. I got killed for it. And guess what he should have never been on the field this year. And that's a fact it was a waste of a roster spot. And you talk about the mismanagement his team. This was a great point. But you a couple of weeks ago Kent Khalil McKenzie was a redshirt. They're turning him from a defensive player to an offensive player. Eric berry hate to say this was a waste of a roster spot. So you were dealing with a fifty one man roster spot all year because you had to protect Khalil MacKenzie. That's a disadvantage from the get go. Right. They were behind the eight ball when it came to personnel completely mismanaged. It will there's where's the disconnect? We're never going to know. We're never going to know what really happened on a behind the scenes with all that. But you know, the the chiefs Eric berry was good for one game for a half of one game. And they wound up losing that game. A wound up losing all three games that Eric berry played. So you know, they were thirteen into without Eric berry this year the first game the first half against the chargers was excellent in. You could see his different the difference. He made after that. It was bad where I'm going to want to say this but him being there and confusing and the day to day today today today, whatever the whole thing it's a distraction for a team. And I know that they'll never be a player that tells you that. But the fact that you we we might have this like you could hear it in voice when he's talking about it not to like defend Bob soda. I'm just telling you what happened. But even while we might have them we might not like, isn't that confusing even the players? It's like well Lucas you might be playing you're really playing well lately. But guess what? Now, Eric berry is going to be back. So you're probably going to be bench. Like a certain point, dude. Just get off the field. That's always been my take. And I take some heat for. But, but but in the grand scheme of things, you know, me, I don't just come on a year and spew hot takes. This is the only essential like equivalent to a hot take that. I have it's not hot. It's just a fact, and it was capped tonight. What he was unable to make the play on rob gronkowski. That was your slice of the game. Brought to you by home slice pizza and pints off fifteenth..

"Having run Parker's back Brown. Parker doesn't play special teams. Ron Parker has been a healthy scratch at in the Seattle game. So this isn't a situation where they cut a guy that was a significant contributor because they wanted this spot back four ill DT's purposefully. It was one of those situations. I cut a guy who wasn't seeing time and just wasn't getting on the field at all. So it made more sense. Even if him even if L BT's backup that he'd be on the roster instead of maybe Ron Parker. It took us thirty minutes to talk about Ron Parker's cut. But that's just crazy. Also, the idea of Andrew Wylie at left guard who that could. That could be fun. Just saying maybe maybe in the Super Bowl who knows. Next year while left guards. Are you go down? I mean, I mean or yeah, there's writer, I mean, Australia too. You know, he's on the restrooms. Well at Stacey Meyer at this point. I'm not sure I want Eric berry playing with the D finally getting it going without him. I'm afraid of the rest elements. What are your thoughts? It varies healthy if he's able to give one hundred percent for whatever amount of snaps that he can if he can go out there and play at whatever his best is right now the best that we saw a chargers game. I think he still better than Daniel Sorensen or even Jordan Lucas as much as I love him. The problem is I don't know if you could get that out of burying on snap is now basis whatever he was against Seattle. He wasn't tested a lot. But even the few times where he had a chance to come up and really make a play. He didn't seem necessarily timid. But he just was it selling out on like he didn't feel a hundred percent like he was trying to hold back because he didn't know he was unsure about he's coming up and putting everything on the line for that one play over and over again. So if you're gonna get that very that we saw Seattle, and again, he wasn't tested a lot. So for all I know he was just playing his job doing his role. Just I haven't seen berry been be that unim- Pac twelve and a football game ever as a Kansas City Chiefs. It just doesn't happen. There's not a game where he plays that many stabs literally makes one played entire game. So I feel like something had to be going on there. If you're getting that very again. Yeah. I'd rather have Jordan Lucas energy Daniel Sorensen's playing a little bit better. As is still don't love Sorenson as a starting safety. But he's out there. He looks a little more athletic. He's been playing better if I can get berry playing hard as third safety or just splitting snaps even with one of those other guys I could see us especially since the patriots who are really going to try to pound the rock try to use gronk out on the passing routes. I would like to have Barry for that only. If he's willing to give everything every plot. It all comes down to his effort level and his desire. I know we make we use the word spirit because Eric berry uses the word use the word spirit..

"Thanks, snuck up on us last time the colts came in and we were thirteen and three two thousand and three Peyton Manning came in and won a shocking upset is one. No, you guys be or anted. Andrew luck be guys with Alex Smith. I believe that you. They had the greatest comeback in playoff history. The right. You see what I'm saying? So I'm not excited and right now of all the teams remaining in the playoffs the team that is catching their stride or peaking or lists. The hottest team right now are the colts which bums me out. Now, the only thing that's off setting. That is Andy Reid is great auto by week. Okay. He's great offer by his record coming off a bye week is crazy. It's unbelievable. So that's works in our favor. We do have home field advantage. And we have a really good team. So those things being said, I think it's going to be a very tough game. But I do think that sheafs can win. I think you guys can win for sure I agree that the colts are super hot right now. They're I mean like the eagles. The eagles are dislike I don't astroid. They're playing with house. Money or something. Like, I don't know what they should not have won that game. But like Nick foles is Nick foles in everywhere. Which right? He is just big dick nicking it and all at all places. Just slap and team silly. He's got the magic. He does have the magic dirt. Dig with say. He's got the. He was sing it just that good. Well, but I just feel like, you know, the chiefs secondary like you guys only seven interceptions all year. So I think the idea of turning the ball over is not incredibly high. And you're obviously, you're like you guys just been able to score more or our differences not is weak. It's by by a championship team standard. It's it's a little weak. Now, we have great linebackers. We have great defensive line. Our defensive backs are struggling. You know with coaching up with some preparation with some training. You know, hopefully, we can we can put put them into play a little better Eric berry, Eric berries back now in our safety position and his leadership and his motivation and holding those corners to, you know, a high standard, and I I hope he can do something to motivate that that defensive backfield. You guys are going to have to triple t y Hilton like that guy. I don't know. Yes. And then they're running back MAC. I think it is mar Marlin Mike something like that. He is he's been on a tear team. I mean, they're red hot. Yeah. Just red hot red. Hi, Andrew luck in his flip phone or just coming through. But I can't wait for the game. I think this weekend's games are going to be so exciting. I'm very excited about chargers pats because I definitely think the chargers can smoke them. And I hope they do, you know, look the chargers are not afraid to play on the road. Now there are other team because they lay on the road at home. They were there right now, they're eight and one they're eight and one on the road this season. Yes. That's unheard of. That's crazy talk. Yes. Remember, the ravens came in and beat the chargers here in LA. And then the chargers just made them look like dog shit in Baltimore. I mean, the fact that those and those two games were two weeks apart. Graphic halfway through that game. Where Baltimore complete a pass. And they put up a Chiron. It was three oh nine PM. And it said I completion since one oh seven seven PM. Yeah. In one hundred five minutes. Oh, my five minutes. Lamar jackson. I mean, the fact that they kept in Lamar didn't even think about will. Well. Choice. Now that seemed to be like a that seems like a very Carson Wentz esque choice like Philadelphia being like this is who we chose. And this is sue or starting even though had falls been in at the beginning of the year. Would they have had to win four straight and beat the Rams at home? I don't think so like the okay so Lamar Jackson is the future in Baltimore for. Sure. So that's and that's not to say the flacco doesn't have good years left in him..

"But looking at this inside a capsule here if any other player than Eric berry did what did this season they'd be getting crushed? They would get beginning absolutely obliterated. Now. I know that that that doesn't change the way that people should or will feel about Eric berry. But at the same time, he is the loudest voice on that defensive side of the ball. There's no question about that. He's been the loudest voice on that side of the ball for years and years and years and years, it's not Bob Sutton. It's not anybody on the coaching staff. It's not just in Houston. He's never taken on that role. It wasn't even Derek Johnson. It was always always always. Eric berry and those players with sitting there knowing that he's medically cleared knowing that it's a pain tolerance issue knowing that he could play if he so choose chose which he admitted I know Andy Reid has said, well, we've got him on a on a snap count. We've got him. You know, make sure that he doesn't overdo things. Eric berry admitted after the Los Angeles game that he could have played the week before. But he didn't feel it in his spirit that was his post-game quote, direct quote. So if the players in that locker room are sitting there looking at the loudest voice in the locker room, the guy that is their leader, the guy that is the heart and soul on that side of the ball. And he's not feeling it. How do they feel? I know that professional athletes should be able to get up for games, but we're seeing time and time again throughout the season that they're not. And I don't think that there's that much of a stretch to look at it and say Eric berry doesn't want to be on the field that much. Right now. So why aren't those those guys aren't getting up for games because their leader in the heart of the team isn't getting up for games either. Yeah. In for me. I guess too little bit different. I think leading up to his first game. I was kind of in the same boat as everybody else that are not everybody. But you guys here that he should be back on the field. It's a pain tolerance thing. I get it that probably sucks it probably hurts incredibly bad for him. But you gotta tough enough at this point in time. We're way too far in the season for you to keep sitting out because you don't feel good enough to play if it's not a bigger risk to injure, your no, your heal, your Keeleys, whatever it may be then the game came around. And I thought he was pretty good. I thought out Eric berry defense definitely looked worse last week. I thought he played a pretty good game. He had a little bit of energy when he was in there and all these bad feelings about what he had done up. This point. Does it matter anymore you show up on the field and start to care yet sucks? So late in the season. But when you show up and start to Carrigan play the high level that kind of goes away. Unfortunately this week rolls around. After those comments about his spirit not feeling like he wanted to play. And how he feels pretty good after this game. So he's going to give it a go. We get him making a play on the very first defensive staff at the game. And then literally the only other time I saw Eric berry was congratulating player after a tackle downfield or sitting on the sideline with his helmet off. Like, I get it that part of the scheme. He was designated as our single high guy will Dan play down in the box. We had him play deep allot the Seahawks. Rarely if every threw the ball downfield down the middle of the field where he's gonna be. So you're gonna have a minimal impact on the game. At that point. That's fine. I'm okay with that. But there's some place. They were Eric berry of old would fly downhill from that position. And make a tackle. There's ten fifteen yard runs in there. And I still don't see Eric berry coming onto my screen. I have to watch a little bit closer. What is he doing on these plays?.

"You know, is it seems like he's actually giving effort from what I've seen. I Marcus Peters situation. He looked like he made a lot of business decisions. He wasn't always committed. So I don't know. That's a guy would sign. That's a guy would sign. Jon aims are guy palm eight gel hair, spray or natural. What's the secret? This question is for with the good hair, palm aid, buddy little wax, put a little wax. There's a palm it. I've used as a wax I use. But I don't spend a lot of money. I find the cheap ones. I'm stunting on a budget care second. I have seen with my own eyes. The hair care product cabinet like most people have a medicine cabinet with medicine. Now has this entire shelf or one full of just straight hair care products labeled like Monday, Tuesday, Tuesday, Wednesday night going out. It was crazy. When would you open? The cabinet does like a chorus of angels sing and bright light shine from behind the cabinet like like, you're blessed in the presence of this. This hair care products puts kid product was locked behind lock and key. So I couldn't actually open the cabinet say that just shows you how serious takes his hair. I believe it. I believe you missed out on the on the one I have labeled for humid days. So I mean, you didn't even see the full thing. Pull out. No, it was it was clear point his day. I just must be blind. I mean that that's my that's my go-to greater on earth happens when then when Qin wears a hat. I almost took all of his hats away. When I was there. Gosh. Okay. We'll go to something. Much more serious. Ed, probably something that's going to get us added on Twitter. Our guys silly football. Asks y'all think it's sad that the fan base is giving Eric berry a pass for quitting on this team. You stood there. Healthy and watched his team lose. I'm not gonna I'm not I'm going to soften this a little bit. But I do want to have this conversation. It's public knowledge that Eric berry has been medically cleared for ever was he ever not medically cleared. I'm not is that right? Sure. Win. We I heard that he was medically cleared. But it was a lot was while back. Yes. Yes. I think so we do need to have this. Eric berry conversation. I think it's I think it's probably time. And I think you guys probably have a lot of stuff to say about it as well. Eric berry is one of the most inspirational human beings you're ever gonna find. And he's beat cancer. He's been through a lot. He's been through hell and back, and he's been through a lot of things that are beyond football. And I think perspective changes when you go through things that your literally fighting for your life. Not just your your next contract, but your life. I think some things are different with Eric berry on his perspective. I think. There's things that are different with him on. On what he cares most about. I'm not saying he doesn't care about football. I think he cares about football. I think. I think you know, from a painful, we've we've heard forever. This is a pain tolerance issue. And he does not seem to have the same kind of motivation and passion for football to play through through to play through pain all of the time. Now, could that be that maybe he doesn't want to go through some of the medical, you know, some of the some of the pain medication that they manage that they use to manage some of these paints. Maybe he doesn't want to to throw a lot of that into his body because he knows the damages that it can cause in maybe part of his decisions around that could be trying to to deal with his his, you know, he's coming back from cancer. But it does I think aired Barry probably should have been on the field quicker. I do and I think it would have been nice to see him ramped up quicker and. To some degree. You can't blame them. But at the same time, he's also the highest paid safety and football, and he probably should have been on the field quicker than he was. It's a situation here where this dude has earned a little bit of pass from from everybody. Yes. Chief fan media things like that.

Lone Jack sworn I had to dump them. Doesn't mean he's done a true chief's fan. Well, he didn't understand the rules of the radio. Patrick, you're next up. What's patrick? Hey, guys. All right.

If if we knew about this February the full the full the full thing percent barber. Do you think you'd be a chief still today hundred and ten percent? I agree with you. I think he's still on the chiefs. All right. And how do you got? In the playoffs. Now, if they had a better running up, no. This guy ten and two we're gonna find out. They gotta get where right ready. They gotta get Eric berry back and see what they can do their close to being a Super Bowl contender. They have now four games left to figure out the kinks. All winnable get Eric berry back in the mix. Get you know, your your new running back by committee situated sure, some of these problems on defense, he hoped that berry Consol out of those kind of clean up the penalties a little bit things that are shooting yourself in the foot. And then hopefully, you have a by if along the way you can can string together some wins. You still control that you control your own destiny. Even though you have two losses, and then hopefully, also too you have it wrapped up by week seventeen. So we could finally see Chad Henny baby Henny given Sunday against the raiders week seven team. They better get berry back because they got nobody who can cover grunk if gronk even makes it to the postseason with his health gronk may have walk. Her by then still better than ninety percent of the Thais. Kelsey is so injury prone. He is he's a fifty five year old man wrapped up in that body. Unbelievable, patrick. Thanks, man. Jordan.

They give up their wanna teams that give up the most. I can look that up for you. Yes. Go ahead while I look that up. Go ahead with your point. Okay. Well, then what is our major malfunction what gonna take the put a five man line on Mr. Barbour? I mean, you just make a call. We'd go out front put five Gaza. I mean put five guys online take one out of the secondary, which we don't need. So. Always a little give and take. So if you wanna get more immediate pressure. Then you gotta you gotta you gotta give up some some underneath coverage over the top help. So right now, it seems like they're more comfortable with the foam rush trying to you You know. know, have seven in the secondary to try to cover. So. Guy picked poise and he wanted to try to get the quarterback release it earlier, do you? You know, you won't help on the back in Oakland. Thirty six sacks this year that is fifth worst in the National Football League. Dallas Tennessee the giants. Houston are worse. Green Bay is tied with Oakland for the most sacks give it up. So I I mean, they got a couple of them today. They got to they had a couple of strip Saxon there. They they got to car it seems and I'm not saying that defense looked at all good today. But it seems like the type of team in the playoffs..

Chiefs defense will be getting a bit of a boost in the coming weeks safety. Eric berry returned to practice yesterday for the first time this season following his torn achilles tendon in last season's opener as well. As the heel injury. He's been dealing with since training camp head coach Andy said, quote, we'll just see how he's doing. There's no pressure there or any of that just see how he feels and take a play to play. I think he's just as curious as we are disease. How he feels. We're going to go easy with him. I mean, this is a huge huge thing for the Kansas City Chiefs. Eric berry is their heart and soul is so important what they do culturally in the locker room. He's a really good football player. It is not gonna make them the Rams overnight. It's not. But it's a really big piece. And I do think it's a reminder that this chief team the margin of error for Kansas City in every game is small, right. We talked with the Rams and the wrong side of it. Eric berry makes two or two or three ply. Big plays a big play in a game that could be the difference between us or bore. Not chiefs. Absolute contenders is a reminder they've got some reinforcements coming to number four. A lot of attention was on Baker Mayfield. And who Hugh Jackson following Sunday's game between the Browns and Bengals following Cleveland victory Mayfield and Hugh had an awkward moment on the field and may feel critical of his former coach for taking a job with the Bengals after being fired. Also called him a fake in a reply to an Instagram post. Well yesterday may feel didn't hold back from this criticism..

"So yet he's going to help a lot no matter what he comes back as this year. No matter what level is fully healthy. Eric berry for that game. I do a huge difference. I think like sixty percent of Eric berry is our best safety. So, you know, that's that's some shade. Lucas, but he's on the bench was safety that Bob will play. Yeah. Yeah. In bendy. And asks was that the best best game of the year for Chris? Conley. Yes. And Chris Conley's best ability in that game. I think was pretty much just a veil ability. Because I mean, I think anything that was really spectacular rewatching. It really good that he. Was able to finish that double catch on the drag route for the touchdown. Because if he drops that. Best game of Conley's career. I think is the correct phrase. And like Kim said, I don't even know what he did end. This is not to throw be a hater Chris Conley. Although I am well aware that I'm not his biggest fan. I'm not he's like a nineteen ninety five extra Seaver in the NFL, which isn't a position exists anymore. But regardless best Jon Gruden says differently. They also traded for joining Nelson who came into the league in about nineteen ninety-five. So however this game here. Oh, yeah. Ages one kiss kit. This is why we have long podcast you just keep egging on. And you're going to blame me for it. Chris conley? He did make the nice catch. I don't care if he'd double Kadett. He nice catch. He got Oprah. Another play man watching him wanting to the end zone. I still kid. You guys not. I'm never sure if Chris Conley Dimitrius Harris has the football. Yes. Insert Harish drop joke here. However, once they have the ball, I have to wait to see their numbers say who in is because they look like the same player out there with their level of what is so then take with a grain of salt. He got open because of the Rams paying attention to tie kill who was carving them up all game. Well, yeah, I do think that it was Conley's best game of his career. But I still don't think that he's necessarily a big factor going forward. He's a good guy to have on the team. He's a good guy to play out a rookie contract. But when it's up, I don't think you need to be floating a bunch of money his way to keep him on the roster. I think you can replace him with another guy cheaper guide later in the draft. Maybe go get him six touchdowns though this year. And then, you know, maybe. He'll he'll count on that compensatory formula kills. At David made a seven asks what goes on your leftover Turkey sandwich? Shibata bond lightly toasted, you get your Turkey on there. You get a block.

"Good question. I think that when you couple the Rams defense maybe having the slight edge over the Sikhs defense. Then I'd probably say the most well rounded team Watson spoke offenses are highly explosive. It would go to the Rams now I will say they have probably more explosive quarterback play or at least more versatility that aspect with Patrick Mahomes, which is playing well above yon whose years basically jerk off is on pace to have a tremendous season. But he's not the catalyst of offense. Like, I would say Patrick Mahomes. Yeah. Towards the end of the game the other. They thought the Fowler strip sack was just Houston. And you see that that fearsome front of the Rams maybe when they get to lead back. This defense can kinda round in shape, but you're correct right now. And so the same thing with with the Kansas City Chiefs, they're missing Eric berry. Once these two pivotal players in the secondary get back which team do you? Kinda give the edge going down the stretch. Yeah. You still have a passer us that's been system and from all different angles. Not only talent wise going to apply pressure. But they can Dow things up they can make it difficult on offense as well. I think when you're talking about the best back in the lead entirely who's who's definitely worth the price of admission. I mean, there's emigrate there that you just can't really afford to lose two. You don't want to get the ball back Jared Goff from that all the things you probably won't see. Taking your round the league with Brad Hopkins, the former oiler and titan offensive lineman. So let's focus on your old franchise, Tennessee, look, very good. And just about every phase of the game. Mike Gabel matching which with his old head coach, Bill Belichick. Titans. Beat the patriots today to go to five and four. We know that Mike mularkey change, the culture in Tennessee. It's a team that won a playoff game a year ago. But what dimension you think? Mike variables brought this club this year. I think that he's just basically created a structure here that was necessary to kind of cool wral the talented that has on this is a very young team therefore being very developmental and my Brady bowl and the system that he's trying to implement. I mean, are are just exactly what the doctor would've ordered in this situation. If you listen to even the respect he has for even going against his I would say mentor even more coach to him than than a staff member. Here's respect for the game. And he's actually teaching his players is. I mean, it's been and just think of how how top to bottom committed your players are wouldn't have that type of understanding what you're trying to accomplish. And also understanding that this guy comes from a tree of of success, you know, and and listen to the number of players that you know, that have had that experience of being in New England and experience in their culture. They all said the. Same thing. You know, it was like maybe mode. Ryan even said about you know, playing full sixty minutes against team because this team is just waiting for you to do something to give them advantage.

"So even without making any moves what you're doing is trading and wait to future for something that you think is going to bring you present day success when you might already got it team. I already good enough to go win. You can't say that about this chiefs defense, I'm say that twenty first in points is about points talked me about no yardage one. Hey about those. I don't wanna hear about anything except for the points on that scoreboard. Twenty first ranked twenty first. Chiefs though. And you've you've seen the defense. I mean, it was bad at the beginning of the year. They've admitted that the tackling was bad, but you've seen the past few weeks. It's been good performances against the Jags. And the Bengals I thought you had a passable performance against the Broncos. You're thinking about the future on deadline day. If they I mean, I think the chiefs must've thought where a player away in that players Eric berry what they had to have thought. That could that could have been in somebody's mind. I think it just comes down to if you like the guys in the locker room while you're gonna mess with the chemistry. I like the guys I'm going to work with the Gaza coaching up. I like the guys that I see take the feel and where are chief uniforms and go play hard as they can to get us to the point. We all right now. Why do I want to bring in a Jacksonville Jaguars Dante Fowler who off? How do I want to bring in anybody to commence up the chemistry? We already have for what it's worth. Andy Reid is said since the beginning of this these guys play together, and they've stuck with that. They didn't go and get somebody. The disconnect for me though, Sean is two three weeks ago. Whatever was a month ago, you were ready to go. You're ready to go and get somebody. And then these performances over the past few weeks change that in your mind or was it a phantom Eric report that okay, he's going to be reading a few weeks? I mean, we don't really know what it was. But what changed from when you're ready to go and get Earl Thomas today? I didn't want Earl Thomas, so your price. They wanted second round pick. I didn't want. No, I say I will give you threes and fours to get rid of to give it some some depreciate values depreciate athletes doing later. Anyway, let them do and you see the Seahawks and turn things around. Now they start running body play a little defense. There aren't they doing? I right now. So you know, them getting rid of Earl Thomas a little bit of a dish. Subtraction. Maybe the team actually got better starts tonight and realize without Earl Earl Thomas, and all his everything me me me me. Shaken hands. But how you but I am not ready on this program on a nice day on a Tuesday night to go down. The addition by subtraction road dish achieves fat program. John the elephant in the room talking about it tonight. Clark hunt spoke to the media yesterday. And speaking of Eric berry, I was wondering you know, what have we heard from the chiefs is Eric berries literally day to day. He's he's literally day-to-day. So I said, you know, what I'm gonna go ask the owner. What is your interpretation of this because we haven't gotten anything literally day to day, sir? It's been seventy nine days. Well, it's no different than what you heard from Andy or Rick burkholder literally as day to I do know that nobody's working harder rehab, the New York or young man who loves the game of a ball in wants to be out there on the field. And as soon as he feels he's ready. He's gonna be out there. Literally day to day today literally is day to day. Don't be playing audio chicks and stuff. Let them say he said he says day-to-day Andy's leave the word literally today. Literally no-no doesn't mean just been data day. It's been literally day to day. It's been the longest day to day stretch in the history of the NFL. It has to be and literally is is on the index card. That's handed to these guys..

"Like, I don't think I think most people think like corners corners safeties safeties free. Can't be strong a cover corna can't be a deep zone. They're all Xs and os, you need five or six Xs and os back there in the secondary to cover different areas that feel they all have to be good players. They all have to be solid football players. If you give me two Eric berries out on the field. I guarantee you the defense will be if you give me two Dion. If you can meet two of anything is good has anyone thought of maybe just clone? These guys closets. You get your new Eric berry over there, the -sition as far as the defenses are right now is just not as Bonilla as it used to be where the same guy always played the deep in the same guy always rolled into the box. I think back when you know when I play for the rare skin that was a defense Brian Dawkins. Was the box safety. He was the guy the heavy hitter the blizzard, and then they let any other safety. Join the team be the the free to play the deep side and stuff like that. But I think the way defenses have start going down. Bob sends defense you have to be able to do both. You gotta be able to rock and roll to safeties with the mount of shifts emotions if you always bring in the same down, and they can tell which defense you're in because you're always bringing your strong safety to five yards off the box or two yards outside the hash anything like that tells the quarterback a little tip tip about what defender in you're doing yourself a disservice. So it's just ELS. Everybody has to play and play almost every position. So in your eyes. A world of Daniel Sorensen who I expect either this week or next week Eric berry who the chiefs expect back. I don't want to say I expect back because I have no idea what's going on with that situation and Clinton Dix would have worked out. So maybe you you you send Jordan Lucas packing. Then you have that package Eric Murray, and maybe Ron Parker still in the team, and that could have worked you think for the chiefs and that could have been a better defense than they have. Now, I like Lucas, I wouldn't have Lucas who's that odd man out you tell me, and you you mentioned it has to be it have to be Ron Barker or an Eric Murray at that point. I know after this week a lot of people become for park. You said in that me. They saying I tend to agree that I think you bring on the town if you don't feel you have that. I think the chiefs would they we've been kind of repeating it all weekend and so on and so forth. You probably heard quite a bit on this radio station earlier today. I just think they believe that Eric berry is their midseason acquisition. That's why they weren't willing to give away that future capital. I wanna move onto the final big move of the day though, Sean and that was for defensive end Dante valor junior traded from the Jacksonville Jaguars to the Los Angeles Rams for a two thousand and nineteen third rounder H one twenty fifth round pick richest deal when it came to draft picks today. What did you make this move man, Dante fell as the beast? He's a guy that it covers a lot of ground. He's intense hitter. He's impact player pass run plays all day owns. I mean, just just a very high level elite linebacker league right now with a moment hitman fit five three going out with the ribs. You could see that being..
"eric berry" Discussed on You're Wrong... And Here's Why
"So I'm glad that you pointed these things out because it just so happens serendipitous -ly that I'm prepared to argue both of them. What the you talk about? How potent the posing offenses have been so far? I would make the argument that they've been so potent because they've gone up against this terrible chiefs defense, and that's allow them to inflate their overall rankings and their overall success for the season. And I want to talk about the injuries. Yes, you're right. Just the berries out Justin berry. That's a combination of Eric berry and Justin Houston Justin Houston's out Eric berries out. And I think it's easy to fall into the trap of believing that the record numbers for the chiefs currently that they're currently allowing on defense or nothing more than that natural byproduct of the offenses like their offense is dropping out huge leads, and that's forcing teams to take more and more risks and look for more and more chunk place. And that these these injuries are playing a huge part. I think it's very easy to say look. Oh, Justin Houston's not there. Eric berry is not there as the reason for their is Tanisha poor play. But but listeners would you be surprised to hear that since two thousand fifteen the chiefs are eleven and nine with both Justin Houston, and Eric berry healthy together in the lineup there twenty three and nine without them together in the lineup. Now is that more of an interesting happenstance than a damning Trent probably, but it also speaks to the fact that the team doesn't need those together in the lineup to win games. And that maybe their absences not as big a deal as you would think. So Pat, Mahomes, tyreek hill and the Kansas City. Chiefs offense are doing their job. But right now, they're being let down by the poor play on the defensive side of the ball that we saw this week against great teams. Whether or not the patriots are great team to be determined. But against great teams. They simply aren't good enough right now. Yeah. To be determined because I'm pretty sure somebody on the phone said that the patriots weren't exactly dead and buried a few weeks ago. I don't remember who that was. But we'll let let everybody out there listening recall that I mean, honestly, of course, the chiefs defense is under performed, but you have to remember they still have a lot of guys who can certainly add. And play a lot better than what they've done. I mean, everybody when the chiefs traded Alex Smith and the Redskins essentially through and KENDALL fuller that was a big deal people acted like the chiefs head essentially swindled the Redskins for KENDALL fuller. I mean, he's a guy who hasn't performed super well yet. But you're also a guy who's now only six games into a new scheme and new team that sort of thing he's going to get more and more comfortable as he's out there. You can't forget about a guy like Reggie Ragland and even for those linebackers. They're they're not they're not subpar linebackers. It's just a matter of getting everybody in sync. And also because they're getting out that lead. Like, you mentioned teams are just constantly having to throw the ball on them, which is going to tire defense out more in my opinion than just hard pounding brushing as far as the entire defensive teams. Just running the ball. Most of the time. Obviously the D lineman are going to get more and more tired same with the linebackers. But when you're stretching out those corners, no safeties with constant route running and route protection it can be a real problem for defense. Andy Reid is a coach, obviously as offensive minded I and that's always been what he's focused on. But this guy's always brought in guys as far as coaches and coordinators to to really coach a defense. And excel I mean, if you remember his tenure in Philadelphia, they had some of the betas defenses betas in mess defenses. That the NFL had to offer. And I just I just have a feeling that there's tweaks and.

What I feel like we really need to be looking at right now is is leadership on the field.

I really feel like that right now. We're feeling the loss of the guy like Derek Johnson who had seen every single play in the heart and soul in the middle of dependent, not have an Eric berry on the field is only Tom top that problem.

I started off in started off in PHP and what the job and then and then ruby is where I was introduced to the whole open source world and his back in two thousand and eight since then I've pretty much clamped down on ruby for very long time, and anybody who's listening knows that the ruby communities pretty remarkable owner comes to when it comes to open source and and helping build tools for each other. And so I grew up. Professionally in this atmosphere where we're all giving each other. I had my heroes back then Remmy sharp. Of course. There's Tom Dale and and and you cats and and d. h. h of course, and a lot of people who are doing massive contributions to the community, and it was so fascinating to watch every single time that happened. It was just another tool in my tool belt, right? And and so I became very calm. Maybe comfortable is probably the right word. I became comfortable with with utilizing open source for my for my personal career growth. And I've been doing so for for very long time. And so back in July of last year I was working for a company. I wasn't too thrilled working there and I wanted to be able to start something on the side. And when I did that, I, I asked myself, what can I possibly provide? That's not out there. And and I, we had some ideas that might work might not work, but I thought about what what am I passionate about? And I'm passionate about open source and I have a background in marketing, so so the the whole idea kind of came out of it was I remember that I remember the day I was driving to work and it just hit me. I think I can marry the two and help open source continue to grow through through marketing and advertising, and once that idea clicked it, everything stems from that kind of fell right into place. My mind. It's interesting to two for one, of course, Romy sharp, huge influence remind DJ definitely, Tom del you..

"Helping i'm sure teams practice at playing two on one favoring the defense on jump balls all right let's see no number where we seven that is keen o'neil number six is eric berry coming off the achilles drop down the list a little bit and number five devin mccourty neal is the guy that you've cited as sort of the counter to the chess piece approach that that some of these teams are using as far as splitting out tight ends or fullbacks to kind of tip coverages neal is a guy the falcons have put out there at cornerback sometimes and sort of decided he could in spots hold up at at cornerback will because what they did with him so a lot teams will put their safety out at corner against a detached or split wide tight end and play man to man and that's the safeties job but the falcons have started to play zone with that safety others so he's a cover three corner and that's what's different it's hard to play zone coverage at a different position because in mantoman it's how you've always plays how you played football when you're eight years old it's just you got him yup follow him around i mean in the simplest crudest terms in zone you've got this area relative to him relative to that other guy relative the formation relative to the other defender around you that's a lot more to figure out and play to and that's a different technique it's more refined it's harder to do and so most safeties cannot just jaunt over the corner and then play zone coverage kiana neil has started to and i think we'll see more of that this season.
