"War or 9 11 or many other things. And in this episode, which is really just a snippet, you'll have to go to his podcast feed if you want to listen to the entire episode. But in this episode, Josh speaks with the former principal of Columbine high school, Frank D'angelo. Frank and Josh discussed the events of the tragic shooting. What the police were doing at the time of the shooting, as well as the potential motivations of the two shooters, Eric Harris, and Dylan Klebold. They also discussed the infamous basement tapes, as well as seeing Klebold the previous week at prom. In addition to a lot more. So it's a tough thing to listen to. It's a sensitive topic, and it may not be for everyone. But if you are interested in learning more about what was happening on the ground by someone who was there right on the spot, I highly recommend that you check this out. Okay, that's it. So here is the episode. Let's jump right into it, Frank. Walk me through, please, then April 20th, 1999. Where were you and how did you find out there was something wrong? Yeah. Well, on April 20th, a beautiful, beautiful Colorado spring day, we have snow, but we have sunshine about 300 days out of the year, and it was one of those beautiful days. But I didn't start out at Columbine. I actually started out our students were future business leaders of America were receiving an award. So they invited me to be there to congratulate them. So I'm late getting back to Columbine. And when I got back, I was looking for a teacher, Kiki leba, whose student taught at Columbine, he was on a one year contract, and we had interviewed him the day before and it was a no brainer. We were going to hire this guy. He was fantastic. The kids loved him, just a great addition. But I couldn't find him. And all of a sudden, when he came to my office, it was right at the beginning of a lunch and we had two lunches, a lunch and B lunch. So I'm late getting downstairs for a lunch. While I'm sitting in my office and getting ready to talk to Kiki and to this day, I'm not sure if I ever offered the job. We kind of laugh about it now, but he still working at Columbine 23 years later. But the reason being is before I could offer him that the job and welcome to the Columbine family, rebels for life, were Columbine rebels in a secretary comes running towards the door and I remember it so vividly there was a little window just literally face planet there. And I knew something was wrong. James here, and now a brief word from our sponsors. And she opened the door and she said, Frank, there's been a report of gunfire, bombs exploding, and it's not registering. I mean, I had been there for 20 years. I could count on two hands the number of fistfights we had. And so the first thing I'm thinking, it has to be a senior prank. You know, we're about a month away from graduation. And so run out of my office and tell her to call police 9-1-1. And mind you, 23 years ago, the only girls we didn't Colorado were fire drills. And now you look at all the drills that the kids are learning from the time they enter elementary school. Run hide and fight drills, secure the perimeter line. We didn't ever had any of that. We did the best we could. So when I ran out of my office, Kiki went down one way, I went the other as soon as I came out to the office on my office doors, my worst nightmare became a reality because I encountered the gunman. And I remember it so vividly and everything just seemed to slow down and later what I learned was you go through something called fight, flight and freeze. And I went through and I thought I walked out very calmly, but I remember very distinctly what the gunman was wearing baseball cap turned backwards, white cutoff T-shirt, black vest, boots, and I just remember the shots being fired and glass breaking behind me. And all I kept thinking about, it just slowed down and all I kept thinking about what it was going to feel like to have a bullet pierced my body because I had never in my life encountered anything like that. And so I thought I walked very calmly, but I actually spread it towards a gunman. And I know when my secretary, Susan white and Kiki leiba saw me later outside, they were shocked because the last they saw me, I was spreading right towards the gunman. And I've had police officers say, Frank, why? You're unarmed. Why? And one reason one reason only my girls, I had some kids that were in trouble. And there were about 25 girls that were coming out of the locker room to go to a physical education class, and they were unaware of what was happening. And I got them there and I knew in my mind that if I got them into the gym and we'd be able to shut the door and then once I was able to check outside to see if it was safe because there was a report, a sniper is outside snipers on the building. I said, once I got him outside, we'd be in a safe place. Well, everything was known as planned. I'm keeping him calm, and then all of a sudden, I pull on the gym door and it's locked and we're in trouble. And the girls are screaming, girls start praying and literally the gunman is turning the corner. We hear the sounds of the shots getting closer, the boots on the ground. And I had about 35 keys on a key ring. And I was a principal that I work sued every day or sport code every day. I reached in my pocket and the first key I pulled out, I stuck in the door and it opened it on the first try. And it wasn't that this key was especially marked, and now when I go out and do presentations with people, I said, if you need to get to that key, if you need to get to that button, you need to be able to do it quickly. This key was not specially marked. It was just mingled in with all the others. And I was so fortunate to be able to do that on the first try because if I didn't more likely, I wouldn't be conducting this interview and those girls would have died. James here, and now a brief word from our sponsors. And it was several years ago Columbine girl softball team was playing in the state championship. And so at the game and all of a sudden, a young lady comes up to me and I recognize her. She was one of the girls with me on April 20th and she's crying. I'm crying pretty emotional and she spins me around. She said mister D do you see that girl there in right field? I said, yeah, she said, thank you for finding that key because that's my daughter. And if you didn't find that key, she wouldn't be playing in this game and got very emotional. And so it was from there, I immediately went outside and the thing that so disturbing in there's no one to blame, but it was a protocol at the time to secure the perimeter. Right. And we had a school resource officer that was exchanging gunfire. And he was being told that you can't go in until the S.W.A.T. team arrived and that was one of the most frustrating things and talking to the three or 400 people that were trapped in the building. They were being told, help is on the way and all of a sudden all these officers are arriving. Paramedics are arriving, but no one's coming in the building. And I got outside and I was actually helping the police officers draw floor plans at one point they were going to put a body armor on me to go into billing shut off the fire alarm because it was so loud that the police could not S.W.A.T. team could not communicate once they did arrive. And so by the time the S.W.A.T. team got there, it was about 58 minutes after the original shots were fired. And it's not the place's fault I have defended them to the very max because that was a protocol. And I even was on the street with many of the officers who were friends of mine and they said, you know, this is crazy. We've been sworn to protect and serve and we're standing outside. But that was a protocol at the time. Now you look at the protocol. First officers are immediately going in. Most of these events are over within three to 5 minutes. So that's what happened on that particular day. Thank you for listening to today's episode.

"Nickel and you got nick cross in the back at free safety. You had the best secondary in the conference. So they got talent now. Date database get hurt messes things up a little bit but targeted then moves over corner. Now you still got him run one. Which according to bennett running to and then they got talent. I am not as bleak as i would have been in past couple of years looking at the roster for talent wise. The recruiting as is evident. Right now i can see what he's done and it's it's coming to parisian so everything about lassie and his great recruiting and give them some time blah blah blah. Well he did it the talent here now. They just need to put the pieces with coaching and execution together. And they're gonna give anybody a problem i think. Is it there on on the offensive line. It has that's it's hard to determine because we have you know illinois in west. Virginia now west virginia had thought they still with talented d. Lineman and. I don't think johnny called his name. One time the whole game so credit there live for that the eric harris transfer his seemed to pay off. He solidified that center position and they've played better. They are probably the biggest question. Mark going into the season and so far. I can't say they've been an achilles heel. They've done well. They kept until you upright for the most part and they've been able to run the ball so that the jury fill out on them. I will be vika. Yeah i will will be i so i wanna come back to leah here before we talk about. What's coming He's not making the big mistake. He's not forcing the ball. He's not trying to do too much. That's so far you know in in the first three games He's he's clearly a playmaker..

"And i'm sure dean pees knows that he he's he's not new to this game So there will be some mix of trying to confuse. The offensive line is dean pees clarified. You're really trying to fuse. The guys in the trenches as to whether the arte you make sure you can get those blitz and make them effective in really for the quarterback. I think they're going to try to repeatedly get pressure on him without exposing themselves to the big run. And it's gonna be it's gonna be a tall ask and this is going to put a lot on both foyer and dion jones to be able to cover that space where hurts get out the space and do some damage with his legs but the weapons philadelphia has some good weapons as well at least weapons with potential. The tight end position in the very similar fashion. They've got two guys. That are quality. Tight ends zakar veteran. You know a little bit of a dip last year but man. This guy has been one of the best receiving tight ends for his time in league dallas. Who when they drafted him back in two thousand eighteen a lot of people five. Okay this is gonna be to take over for arts and a few years. It's kind of a lot of people thought the eagles we're gonna move on from this year. The fact that kept him. It's kind of surprising. You've gotta wonder if that makes irks. Dallas got a little bit. Who thought he was going to emerge as tight in one in two thousand twenty one. This will be his fourth season. This is a contract year for him and remains to be seen what they do you know the will they give a contract extension to erz who is gonna turn thirty one this year Or will they finally sort of commit to making the future at the tight end position regardless they have both of them right now. They're both really good weapons at the time that position. Now receiver the smith who is alabama we all know how good alabama sears tend to be their first round pick this year. We don't expect from him except that. Obviously he's incredibly talented a slight smaller guy as far as his stature. You know he's he's tall enough. But one hundred seventy five pounds. Six one he's Hopefully the wind doesn't blow him off the field but again another sort of really big investment for the eagles to try to build this offense. We'll see how that pans out and again rookie. Wide receiver tend to struggle in your one. Even julio jones didn't have a big season initially so this is something to watch what he can do his in his very first. Nfl game now on the other side of smith is yet another first round first round. Pardon me first. Round wide receiver in jalen regular. It was their first round. Pick from twenty twenty out of. Tcu funny enough. He's shorter but weighs more. He's five foot eleven hundred ninety five pounds Understandable he had a struggle as a rookie. I think they're expecting him to take a leap forward this year and again another fast receiver guy that could potentially stretch the falcons defense on sunday as long as these guys. Are you ready to go. And you know they've got. They've also got a quiz watkins at the slot. Who is again another fast receiver. A little bit slight. Six two hundred ninety pounds remains to be seen if he's ready to also take a step forwards he was drafted again in two thousand twenty so the eagles have three really fast receivers all of whom were drafted either last year this year. And if you're starting a offense with a new quarterback in your giving him weapons like this that could be a challenge in the first game you know. These guys don't have a lot of time on the field together. They don't have the timing down. In the way that matt ryan would with russel gauge with calvin ridley and that could cause some issues for their offense. Now you know these are fast guys so they could potentially just win on pure athleticism so if you look at a guy like aj terrell and fabien moreau on the outside and then isaiah oliver in the slot. Terrell everyone has big expectations for. I think he's going to play well in this game I think he's going up against a top notch receiver from a physical standpoint but terrell has shown he can do that. you know. Terrell has had to cover calvin ridley camping. That's going to have prepared him. Well monroe think is you know equality enough corner. We'll see how he matches up either. Against smith or against regular Or walk ins. in obviously isaiah. Oliver stands to be the the issue of the these three corners in could be the one. That's a little bit more concerning. So this is a matchup almost sees a push where there is some potential for the eagles Lot of people have these receivers sort of all go off as really young receivers with very little real game time with With hurts But you know this is where the first game can be very unpredictable. the the philadelphia eagles have running back mile sanders. And you know. He's he's a quality runner really struggled as a receiver The past several years. So he's not going to offer a ton in the receiving game son with the major concerns there and honestly pf has ingredient like fifty fourth of seventy so he's not like this absolutely dominant running back. He's he's decent enough and they've got some faith in him that he can take another step forward here in his third year in. Obviously you know you look at the back end of the balkans defense and you've got arguably the strongest position group on the defense is the the linebackers you know dion jones voyeur lucan and mike walker is a backup behind them. Think these guys are going to do really well against Players like sanders and maybe even coverage against some tight ends like erz goddard in the safety position drawn harmon. Eric harris their veterans. They've been here before. I think that will help. Neither guys actually like really super inspiring their decent enough players think harmon is the better of the two..

"But we still be able to assess where we think they stand after Go at the team. You know what. I'm saying like think about playing video games putting the settings on real hard If you don't get blown out then you know you kind of like okay. All right you know if you put up a fight you still lost. Maybe but if you put fry fight then kind of tells you where you stand right now tampa bay why are they ranked hartwell their national championships champions. Yeah but it's a little bit more than that. There's a reason they're national champions. And the thing is a lot of people didn't see it come in last year they are stacked okay. They bought back all twenty. Two starters from last season offense defense for at least one more year. And how could they possibly do that. Well known than the assistance of their leading quarterback tom brady. Obviously tom brady is back. He convince everybody. I'll get you another one. He has seven. He's got only guy in the league with anywhere near that many. Okay so you got him now. Though ronald jones is usually the one. I believe most people think Does most of the work. They actually have leonard fournette. Starting he has. Mike evans chris gowan antonio brown in his boy. Grunk okay now. This is the other receiving core that was ranked in the top. It wasn't one. It was too all right. That's another tough one but the real beauty of why these guys really have rings on finger. My opinion is because the defense you know they say defense wins championships. In when you have a defensive line made up of the dominant. Su vida via williams got shot and jp jason pierre paul. Well that's already a tough team to beat man that's a. That's a front four. That is going to just run through an offensive line quarterback oba. Wait there's help devon white levante. David an shaggy-haired aumont goodness people that just love wreaking havoc tackle running backs quarterbacks a shorter than they would like to They would like to get a lot further before you have to see those guys Yeah i know. And i just have to say these teams are going to make us proud tonight. I know i know they're going to show some good ball so some good game. That's why i believe this is going to be a high scoring game. Not because the defenses are gonna be lackluster. Trust believe is not going to be easy to get to these points but at the end of the game i believe the score will be forty two to thirty one tampa bay right now for your dallas fan in rebuttal. Shoot it why not. I don't mind next game. Philadelphia atlanta now. The first game. Like i said it's tonight The next few games of all gays minus one will be on sunday. Be sunday morning that'd be twelve. Pm central It'll be afternoon. Will i know to a. Pm isn't morning but work will be here. Makes it easier for me to say morning after the night. Okay asked the morning game. It's morning on the west coast Then you've got the three twenty five. Pm central time which is the afternoon games in then. We have one sunday night game Seven twenty pm central all right so let's do a philly atlanta Is is the game. I'm gonna watch. I might view a quarter or so but not gonna Definitely be too focused on this. One is a few other games like a little bit more interesting on my end But yeah we got jalen hurts. Who's almost Half the root for these guys. So that i can win my fantasy league so jalen hurts gonna have a great game I can't wait to see him. Could make with devante submit their first round pick out of alabama. Who won the heisman. let's not forget. Let's put respect on devante. Smith's name i don't care by size on care about. He was on a team. No with that look. He wouldn't to be the number one option and he won the heisman Jalen regular They have dallas godart on defense. Still got Name you have to respect okay But yeah this. This philly team is actually expected to be last in their division They did have a rough preseason. They ended up losing games in tied one with the jets But yeah i'm excited to see them. Get out there. Represent for the city. Really wanna see and i mean all jokes. Aside jalen hurts a talented individual. He did not get a full season last year. so this is his full. You know training camp in all at me no. Kobe really messed up a lot of things last season. But you know he got all of that stuff finally under his belt look he might surprise Out there now as being quiet. Coaching have been talking too much by the so i could be wrong. You know. it's a lot of guys out there that you know coach the asks have been raving about it. We've been hearing about jalen. Unfortunately is one of them. So it's gonna come out and make a statement. We will see they will be playing. The atlanta falcons. The atlanta falcons have been Dealing with their hiccups in the past year. Or so. and you know just trying to figure things out With coaching after a big embarrassment in the super bowl just being kind of ugly sensitive The app individuals such as julio jones who is louis c. should have a statue in atlanta But unfortunately he is now moved onto tennessee In the midst of they were able to have a top draft pick of skilled player. That i believe is going to be amazing long-term We got to see what he does. In his rookie season. That is being cow pits. Matt ryan is old guy. But i believe he's oh got still got it kinda like tom so he can still get done. Maybe not as mobile as usual but you can get it done. My davis solid running back. Calvin ridley very good receiver. Their offense is okay. We just hope that everything works out in their favor when it comes to their decided. Ball will Do you when you got the father junior. Eric harris at free.

"I'm joined by jay gordon. We're talking about the falcons. Defense our grades for them going into the twenty twenty one season. Obviously take all of this with grain of salt folks. We're talking about you know guys before. The games are even played But these are sort of initial impressions of the players the quality of the players. What we've seen from them. We've talked about the defensive line that linebackers. Let's talk about the back end of this defense. Because in the past especially in recent years this has been a unit that has been at times problematic. A lot of that has been due to injuries. We've we've seen guys like kiana. Neil ricardo allen demonte casey all go down with season ending injuries over the past several years so some of that is not just simply the nature of the nfl but some of it has been talented issues. I am of the mind that some of that is hopefully knock on wood in the past I want to start with the safeties. Because i wanna finish up with what we've got corner. They brought in to veterans to anchor the safety position for now. They're both on one. Year deals eric harris doron harmon and behind them are what i think are two really promising players. I think next year. Probably going to be our starters at safety second round. Pick richie grant and fourth round. Pick from last year. Jalen hawkins who. I think you could argue that one of the best pre-seasons of any defender on this roster. So let's start with the the two presumed starter for now. What do you feel about harrison in harmon and after that talk about the potential of hawkins grant. Yeah you know. I can catch a lot of las vegas raiders football because i tend to value my time. I but i know right but it you know. Hey of i think they know but you know you look at a guy like eric. Air from all accounts super high character. Guy You know solid run support. can step up in the box and make some plays there can get touched up in coverage a little bit That could be a product of the raiders secondary as a whole which is not exactly like he's coming over to the the twenty thirteen e hawks From the raiders. But i think it'd be decent and run support You may have to get him out of there on nickel and bringing a jalen hopkins or grant. But i think doron. And he's just he was made de defense. You know all the time you spent. I don't know if there was any overlap between these new england. But you know that's switch ability That ability to move around and by all accounts is another guy. he's just super high character. Guy observer You know very very Very much in a leader role which is which is good to have it out of a safety And so i like those guys. I think armand will earn a second contract. I don't know about harris But i think harmon. I think he's gonna fit right in. I think he's gonna make a lot of good places now. Think about can give them an extension. But that's putting the car before the horse so Yeah i it's on the two guys. I don't know if they're gonna be the savior for every single little problem that we have. But when you talk about going from ricardo allen and guys who have been there forever It's it's definitely a different look. It is and it's i'm with you. Eric harris i think is he's decent enough. He's got issues that we're going to have to work around You know when you're signing. You know veterans like this to be essentially stopgaps He's i think he's good as you get for sort of that price range. You know so when you're shopping at dollar tree you're not getting top notch target up flirts and we got the best of the dollar tree brand. I you know. I think harris is better than dollar trade. Let's be very clear But i'm with you drawn harmon has. He's he's thirty years old he's been league for wall. I think his mentorship of grant hawkins is very notable. As you mentioned he is someone who has taken both those guys Under his wing. In particular richie grant and that i think is going to pay dividends over long term and i really love. The falcons have brought guys like that. That are mentors. Now hawkins in grant again last year hawkins was able to play a little bit until he got injured in in sort of missed out on the last several games of the season when he was in there I thought he played fairly well. I did not anticipate sort of the jump that he would make from last year to what we saw this. Preseason his individual play preseason looked really a big leap forward. Richie grant i think fans need to understand. Dean pees asks a lot of the players in his second year. He expects all of these guys to know every position in the responsibilities of those positions. And that's gonna put a lot of pressure on those safeties on the linebackers and you know grant is probably gonna need some time to get used to all of those responsibilities. He can't just learn being a safety. He has to know what it's like to be a corner. He has to know what it's like to be linebacker. That is a big ask and for any rookie to come in. It's gonna take time and if he's not on the field up immediately that does not mean he's bust. The talent is there. I think he's going to be fine. I'm really bullish on what he is going to do. On the back half of this year and in the twenty twenty two. So what do you feel about hawkins grant in their long term potential. Yeah and you're totally right about the days. And i think that's why we saw the falcons make a lot of the choices. We did in the draft saying anything groundbreaking. It's been a hundred times a day. Targeted intelligent guys An older guy seniors captains guys who appeared to have their head on their shoulders. The defense is not easy to learn. There's a lot going on But that was that was one that was my that was my own hocken. Felt like hey you know. He looks like he's really developing. I think that's something. A lot of people were banking on to start season And that's very encouraging. Besides i gotta shot him out. When i was out and breakfast got absolutely lost. Our trust i mean i remember. I was like somebody's house. Because i didn't know parker has to. Whoever you to you know one of the fifty tight end behind had out there like somebody just got eight up august. You know he. We saw i make a couple of good plays during the free stephen shoring up that back in play in that centerfield role and i think he's i think he's gonna see a lot of wing-pong especially in nickel and i trust the. I think he's gonna be okay back there. I'm not really worried. About and Yeah richie granted. Didn't look spectacular. But the thing is he's a rookie. you'd like you said there's a lot to learn a decent and i think the guys ahead of him i will allow him to come on and spots and kind of get get some feel for the game. Get some of that game sets. He has great instincts he had things. Ucf that's obviously a big jump in competition. And and and i think he will grow into. I think by you the season we're going to be feeling a lot. Better about rich brent. Yeah hundred percents Do want to note. The falcons have tj green listed as a safety. He's probably going to be more of a quote unquote. Db where he is going to see. Time both at safety and a corner He's a bigger player. I think he's like six foot three but he's a player that i think is well is he's gonna be more of a backup anyways but he's going to be deployed by ps sort of all over the field when he does come in so another player that i'll just mention him. But how do you feel about the safeties and what. What kind of grade would you give this unit. You know this. This is one that. I wrestled with By the way shut off. Cj green good for many or that's body played really well.

"Whether or not the falcons would keep a fourth guy back there. And it's during ethridge. Who played a fantastic game in that first. Preseason ended up arguably being a little bit more consistent than some of the guys. He was competing with. He has made the initial fifty three man roster. I feel like this is a position that it's going to be relatively stable. Enroll thompson was one of the guys. That was in competition here. I could see him. Potentially going to the practice squad for this team really liked what he did as well in this preseason but right now during ethridge the only other undrafted free agent other than philippi. Franks to make the fifty three man roster. I think he's relatively safe. I think we can run with this now as we get into the defensive backfield. This is where things get interesting. The falcons are going to be running running with eleven total defensive backs now. I think most people thought the max number for the defensive backs it was going to be around ten. So they're they're running one heavier than what most people projected really with that being sort of four safeties five corners and in that that tenth player being sort of a hybrid player that can play both safety and corner. Let's start with the safeties obviously drawn harmon. Eric. harris or the to presumed starters the veteran starters the one year rentals at the safety position and then of course. You've got At the the the backups. For those guys Richie grant who our second round draft pick and then jalen hawkins arguably one of the most improved players from last year to this year Who we think also is going to see a lot of playing time now. The corner position. This is where. I think things are a little bit interesting obviously. Aj terrell fabien moreau or the to pencil in starters. They've looked good from what we've seen from them. In camp in limited playing time in the preseason and then behind them. you've got isaiah. Oliver who is the presumed nickel corner. Who has actually played pretty well. I think he played pretty well in the back. Half of last year in this revised position for him. And then darren hall and avery williams the to drafted corners. They have made the roster. Darren hall maybe a little bit more surprised but again. I don't think the team wants to walk away from any of their drafted rookies. The they wanna hang on to these guys whether they play him or not so hall could be someone that In the very similar way kept inactive on game days and they're keeping him to pull him into the twenty twenty two season unless injuries of course happened. The head of him every williams. Clearly i think is going to be the punt returner of choice for the team going forward. Tj green who. I feel like really had a very very strong season in the last couple of preseason games that last one may have played him onto the roster his player. It's got some size. He's one of the guys. I think that can sorta platoon. Between safety and corner. He has made the roster so kudos to him and kendall. Sheffield is currently on the roster. Here's a guy that i felt was on the bubble. He did not play at all in the preseason. He is barely practice in fact. I don't know that. He is practiced once many of us thought he would either be put on the pup list or put on injured reserve. This could be something where he could be returning in the very near future. And the falcons just are not willing to move on from him yet. But he has for now made the roster. I will say this. I do feel like this is a position. Where if they're going to add another offensive lineman or even potential another running back. I like one of these defensive backs could be the guy to go and honestly. I still think i'm going to continue to say that. I think kendall sheffield's going to be that guy simply because his second season was such a downturn of performance the injuries this year i could see them trying to stash him on the pup list and obviously that would be six weeks before you would be able to see him again. I feel like there's maybe an additional change coming for the defensive back so this is definitely wanted to keep an eye on but right now sheffield has made the roster and of course the the specialist. Josh harris long snapper young way coup. For the kicker and cameron is lack has made it as the punter The former holder or former teammate of young way coup is also now made the roster as well so kudos to those guys As i mentioned before this is and you're going to see a lot of people saying this and it bears repeating. This is the initial roster. I think we're going to see more moves made even possibly today or tomorrow as these other guys are cut. The falcons are pretty high in the the chain for claiming guys off waivers because of the record last year so if they go and claim a guy there's a good chance that they'll get him likewise if a veteran this cut a specially again i think on the offensive line because of the lack of depth there. I think that is a position. They can look to address. End some of the guys. I think even though right now they're on the roster who are are not necessarily on sure footing. If you asked me to put that down to a list i would say number one. Felipe a franks do think. They'll try to put him on the practice squad at some point. But i just don't see them trying to carry three quarterbacks all year long Josh rosen again. I think this is more about the team wanting to give him a longer. Look but i don't think he's unsure for either. I think the team could still look for another veteran quarterback to be the true. Backup to matt ryan this year. So the two quarterbacks behind matt ryan or on my list for a.

"With him. When i was doing some research. I i was kinda surprised. I guess i shouldn't have been. But i was surprised. He's only been a sixteen game starter once in his career and now last year in detroit right. He's he's spent the duration of his career prior to that in a platoon in three Safety system with the new england. Patriots alongside patrick chung and devin mccourty. So it ideally. That's the role he's gonna play in atlanta like he'll start out as the defacto like free safety starter. But you know if all goes according to plan your mixing richie grant in their year. Even maybe mixing jalen hawkins in there. And he's continuing to thrive in the role that he's thrived his entire career. And that's a three safety looks. So that's kinda my outlook I guess to throw in one. More name You know it seems like this is a five person race Tj green has has been one of the surprise standouts. A guy that came over to the team last year former second round. Pick of the colts in two thousand sixteen has bounced around indianapolis seattle new orleans in in private atlanta. He spent some time in carolina Very good athletic. Testing a six two and a half two hundred nine pounds ran a four three four which is really impressive for guy that size Thirty nine and a half inch for ten foot nine inch broad so guy that has the athletic profile that you look for from db in there is a connection as well. The falcons on offense Outside linebacker coach ted monitor. Chino was defensive coordinator indianapolis. Oh i don't know if that has anything to do with You know him getting a real hard look and you know knowing what they have in the building in him. And then also terry fought. No you know. I mentioned he. Greenspan a season in new orleans dairy no ran the pro personnel department there. So i'm sure he had a huge hand and bringing him there for a season so he's wanting to watch he's been cross training. Not only at safety net. Cornerback owner those with kennel. Sheffield being out so certainly intriguing. Name that again depending on how the development of which grant goes which. I'm sure we'll get into in a little bit. You could see some significant time. Early on as richie acclimates and south to the nfl. Yeah absolutely. I think same pages you. Eric harris formerly undrafted. He's thirty one years old Obviously I think they're really hoping that one whether the young guys whether it's tj green or you know even preferably Richie grant ultimately leapfrogs harris. I think they would be pleased if that happened. But he fits the profile. He's a guy that you know. He's got the size He can move around well enough You know looking at this. Pf grades a his best. Year was a couple years ago when he was in the mid seventies which is not bad for a for a guy his draft capital just to say none and to add on that that mid seventies grade came when he was kind of a a rotational player. So again and you can. You can say the same thing about their on. Harman i you know. His best grades came when he was in that platoon. So that's that's where. I think the falcons wanna get. These guys is not playing significant snack. When they do things could maybe get a little bit dicey there back there. So that's where we see exactly. It's the right when they started getting more snaps their scores start dropping now in fairness that could be you know when i look at harmon in you. You realize okay you know. He was in there in the world. That's where he had his best grades. Or i'm sorry not new orleans new england and he finally did get Over a thousand snaps with detroit. He was still decent of his. You know we're looking at his. Pf grade who was in the mid sixties which sounds bad. But it's not like a high school grading score that's sort of an average. Nfl player by their by their metrics prior to that he had several seasons in the mid the high seventies. so harman's got the capability to be a good a part time starter and a guy like you said who is part of a platoon and not necessarily carrying every single snap at position In again for the fact that these two veterans they've been in the league for a while. I think the the intention here was instead of just turning over the safety position which is very important in. Dp's defense instead of turning it over to a bunch of young guys that are unproven. That have never started in the nfl before it made sense to bring these guys in in my feeling. Is the minute the minute. One of the young guys is ready to take on significant snaps. They will supplant eric harris or harmon or both at some point during the season if they are not ready. Then you've got these two veterans on your rental deals and no harm no foul so it. It was a smart move in my mind from tariff on note to bring these two guys on it. This is the kind of signing. it doesn't get you a lot of a fancy points with the fans. People they wanna see. Richie grant out there. Because he's the second round pick they wanna see him jalen hawkins because he was a draft pick from last year but really to stabilize the center of that defense Having news These guys out there. Even if they're not necessarily going to be top tier players. They should be decent enough. And i can already hear fans complaining about. Oh we should want decent players. Well honestly decent players are what you need to help you transition to the next tier of guys to bring up the young guys. These are the kind of guys that help you. Bring along richie grant at the proper speed instead of You know we talked about on your podcast this week. You throw richie grant to the wolves that could absolutely decimate his confidence You have those veterans walking him to the process the available to him to answer questions to.

"I had to bring on guests. Because we've had this conversation just recently. In fact he is. The host of the talking birdie podcast. I'm talking about matt corolla. Matt Dwi thanks again for having me talk. The last time i was on. We're talking. twenty. Twelve draft class probably As depressing as low as a topic darkens phantom over the last decade has it can. I don't think it'll be reached those levels with the safeties. But it's certainly not the strongest position. I'd say on the depth chart. Yeah this one is going to have i think. A lot of question marks Honestly probably one of the ones where it may be better than what. I think we anticipated. It would be going into the season So let's sort of set the backdrop last year with the twenty twenty season. We lost demonte. Akc to an achilles injury which was just absolutely dreadful. Luck because of the fact that both ricardo allen and kiani will also suffered the achilles injury and then of course count and they also had a tornado. Yells years back So devastating injury to casey in the year where they were running. A lot of three safety looks kiani. Looked like he was a little bit better than the at been. Ricardo fell off a cliff. And of course going to this off season we had. We started a defense with three starting safeties. None of them are returning. Ricardo allen was cut primarily for cap reasons. But i i would say his performance fell off a little bit as well On the they opted not to try to retain him Probably because of the injury history. Of course he ended up signing with dallas and then k z also signed with dallas both Chasing after former. Head coach of falcons dan quinn. Who is now the offensive coordinator with the cowboys So that has set up the team to where they basically had to restock the position Almost entirely the only real carryover to this point is a player. We'll talk about a little. Bit jalen hawkins but matt right now. We're looking at the depth chart. You and i talked a little bit earlier this week. I was on your podcast. Which was fun we did. We talked about safeties. We talked about Richard grant the player that draft in the second room. But what's interesting to me is right now. If we look at the depth chart the two names at the top are the two veterans air karras and doron harmon. These guys are obviously intended to be stopgaps. they're both on a one year deal Neither guy is is the kind of guy that you're planning to build the future the position around but there should be serviceable starters drawn harmony. Think is Had some good seasons as well So what are your thoughts on. Eric harris drawn harmon. What they offer to the falcons this year. And what you think. Their potential for starting the entire year is going to be. I think you hit the nail on the head when you said there stopgaps. That's what they were brought in for. You want veteran presences in the building. Because you knew you were gonna overhaul the position. You knew you're going to get younger there. Which is what they did. When they drafted reggie grant fortieth overall. And then you know as you mentioned they retained jalen hawkins who the twenty twenty draft pick so again not sure hawkins if he's a long-term answer there the early reports at a camper promising now that he's he's made an impact to he's made plays on the ball so i am intrigued to see what he can bring. And you know what. I would say that hawkins before i get into some of the others. I think he's a better fit in dean pees defense and he would have been had dan quinn in the long-term head coach in. And i say that. Because i think hawkins is a bit of a twitter like he didn't fall into that prototypical strong safety dan. Quinn looks for allah kiana neil. And he's not really you know the cover one rangy free safety that you look for in say you know the prototype narrow thomas. He's more of a guy that again can do both things ten play. Closer to the line of scrimmage but he can also drop deep. You don't want him playing that cover one has said Would rather be covered to split safety. Look which again fits right into. What ps two. He runs more covered to than you know. Cover warner covers three. So i think there could be something there with him You know we'll see what the future holds. But i am more intrigued and we're optimistic about his fit enroll in impedes off a defense long-term. Then i would have been in dan. Quayle now looking at the veterans again. Eric would have never guessed he'd be the first free agent signing in the arthur smith terry gano era. But you know here. We are A guy that they prioritized in you know. I guess terry did have a connection to Being that eric harris started his career in the nfl. With the new orleans saints so a guy that he knows a lot about and again someone that Is is a great locker room presence going to be a great mentor already has shown already to be a great mentor. Richie grant as those to train together in the off season even prior to grant even becoming a falcon. So i thought that was pretty interesting and again i i do. Expect him to get a lotta run. I mean he was. He was a two year starter. The last couple years With the raiders again. I consider him a competent level player. He is not someone you want long-term but certainly can get the job done And you know hopefully it's more in a limited role and they and they work in the younger guys now withdrawn harmon similar.

"Dot com. All right we're back. Just walk around. The alcohol podcast. So we're talking about what to look forward tonight in the falcons. First preseason game going up against the titans in atlanta. We talked about the offense in the first half top defense. I want to start in the trenches guys like grady jarrett tyler. Davidson highly unlikely. They're gonna play again if they play. It's going to be one series at most. The guys i think are going to be really getting some significant opportunities in this game number. One player that i think last year many of us were hoping he would have a bigger role but injuries and covert and and all of that sort of contributed to a lackluster rookie season. That's marlon davidson. All signs are that this guy is coming to camp in great shape He looks like he's ready to take on a bigger role in his second year I expect to see him. Play a significant number snaps in this game So definitely look for him as one of the key players to watch in that defensive line rotation likewise sort of one of the guys in this draft classic keeps getting forgotten about to quan graham. I think he's also going to get some opportunities. Maybe more in the second half of the game to show what he's capable of haven't heard much about him in camp again you know. He's he's a day three rookie. So i think expectations going in. We're load begin with but he's a player that's got again. This long wingspan. Some potential for growth in upside down the road Be interested to see how he performs in this game. Probably again in the second. Half john kaminsky who contributed to good bit last year. I think we'll see some of him as well on that defensive line and then a name that's been flashing a lot and camp. Jonathan bullard so definitely pay attention. See if he get some snaps some opportunities and whether he's playing earlier later in the game now outside linebackers it seems unlikely that dante fowler who just recently came back in the same timeframe. Kaelin mcgarry did. He is unlikely to play so the big name here for the assad linebackers to pay attention to is add a ogan digi. He is the the one that's recently be sort of been rising up the the the the depth charts at outside linebacker. For the falcons getting some run with the ones When guys like stephen means in jacob to yo to mariner have been getting some rest ogan deja has been getting in there and apparently has been impressive. now. I don't think we can pence a starter just yet. He is a day three rookie but he is definitely named to pay attention to. And if honestly this is probably the weakest position group. On this falcons defense this pass rush is going to anchor off guys like this. So hopefully ogan deja has something he can offer more. So than like stephen means and two to t mariner because i love what those guys can as rotational pieces. But as starters. I just don't think the quality is there so hopefully ogundipe can surprise us definitely named that. I'm going to be keyed in on linebacker. Dion jones lucon probably again as as veterans. Not gonna play a ton of snaps. Michael walker the rookie from last year. I think he's going to see a lot of action. He had a promising rookie season with limited snaps. He played about one third. The snaps of what dion jones did during the season but walker is someone that i think has got some upside. Sounds like he's had a good training camp. He will probably get a lot of snaps in tonight's game and then passed him during ethridge and rural thompson again to other names to pay attention to that linebacker spot. Now the corners. Aj rail has been tearing up camp. Will we see much of him tonight. I don't know you know. He played an entire season last year. He's not yet quote unquote a veteran. This is only his second year. I think we will see him out there somewhat but maybe not as much as some of the other younger guys so probably see a series or two with aj trail out there Fabien moreau probably not gonna play. I think really the guys. We're going to get a really good long. Look at chris williamson. darren hall avery. Williams williams is also in competition for that punt returner spot. So we're probably going to see a good bit of him on special teams as well Williamson has been a guy. That's flashed a lot in camp. Let's see if that carries over to an actual game. He is a definite name to pay attention to that. Could be part of the rotation if he can keep it up and again you know. This is really the first opportunity for many of these guys who've made a name for themselves in count show that translates into the game and williamson is one name that has really popped recently. Now the to starting safeties. Eric harris drawn harmon both veterans again. Maybe you see him for a series. But i think this is the perfect opportunity to get guys like jalen hawkins last year's rookie Safety in the only carryover safety from the dan quinn era. We lost three of our safeties. As you remember. Richie grant our second round draft pick. This year is probably going to see a ton of playing time in this game Tj green who has been getting snaps and both safety and a quarter. He is someone to pay attention to hear. I think he's one of those players that this coaching staff loves. They love the versatility of him being able to move from safety to corner. So let's see how he does with that in the game so definitely at the safety position. Pay attention to the jail. Hawkins richie grant and even some of the guys behind them and whether or not they can make a case for themselves but right now it seems like the two primary names because they could legitimately get some snaps during the season and significant. Ones are grant hawkins. Pass that to finish off. you know. We talked about special teams the kick returner. Spot is clearly oro. patterson's. I don't think there's going to be any competition there. We know he's he's a dynamic returner and kick returns but from a return standpoint It sounds like it's down the chris rowland and every williams and williams in college was just explosive at the position. So definitely something to pay.

"Fifth in it wasn't like oh us doing a mock drought like our. Let's get this over with. Yeah so i mean it. It's it's interesting but yeah. I mean pretty clearly all listed as ahead of the pack there and i like hawkins is really hit. Some impressive place today to Even with the pads on. I mean i think you know it's it's hard to tell sometimes With these runs. Because there's no full tackling but guys will grab stop you and Hawkins didn't get stopped. You know it's kind of lost sivan behind the pile. But he kind of made some nifty moves and and got out there in space and score another touchdown and it's like full contact. I don't know if he would have escaped or not but still impressive to. He's shifty and he's really damn fast when he gets out in the open field i mean he. He made oliver look silly. is all. I think oliver was at the backside. Contain on that he just kind of out raynham to the end zone there And please don't use this as an excuse to dunk on oliver. Oliver has been mostly fine. Just you know just to winning out that he be a starting caliber corner there But speaking of the defense it's worth talking about the defense. Because i think the defense was very impressive The defense is going to have an advantage early on because it's a new offense new install. Everyone's kind of get used to it but we did see a couple. More turnovers today Eric harris the safety had very nice. Pick where he read the play. The whole way broke on the ball. Who's able to kind of pick it off in jumping from the past And then foyer awoken. Also oluwole concerns me Was able to rip out a ball on a run play and get the force fumble and recovery himself which of course he was great at last year so it seems like that trans continuing but what do you think about the defense really seeming to emphasize creating turnovers this year. And how important is not gonna be for a unit that may be is going to rely on that a little bit more than you'd want to on enemy became changes for the defense. And it's it's really nice to see that they're you know doing this in camp because again the defense is supposed to have the advantage early on in camp. That doesn't always mean that it's going to translate like that so you know it's really nice to see that's happening and you know you said at the defense it's they're gonna force a lot of turnovers this season just because this unit isn't very talented you know relatively speaking when you look at the other defensive units around the nfl. I'd say that this would probably be a bottom ten defense in the league when it comes to your talent But probably a bit better with coaching. Because we've seen what dean pees has been able to do with defenses whose talent levels weren't really all there we Couple of years ago so definitely if the defense can be a plus unit when it comes to force turnovers and they were not that last year. They weren't that last season than you know..
"eric harris" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"High school so i was a match for every five. I had to go against at lincoln because they didn't know how defend that at the time Meanwhile like you're playing with staffs and steph was the guy that year he became the like. Everyone knew news new staff book. What was your relationship like while you were getting better and become an your own right. And he was on this kind of superstardom path. Oh but i mean steph was like in high school. I was saying highschool one hundred percent supportive. Like you know especially like my first year when i was coming on my show so I was playing with a new team. Called the broncos. The new york city broncos. So that's like the b or c division of a youth programs. And you know in new york. So i had a couple of tournaments our in Ohio and i had a tournament out in virginia. And that was the first time i saw a and i was like this did so i. I had good towards out there. So we're was getting back at you. Know the yoda's kid like djamil. Your cousin is killing. So when steph heard that like him in my coach got together and they said no. You're not playing with the broncos mall you come with us to the bills so ever since then. I started playing with the galileo with steph. Like he was like you know he was bringing me along with him so every big time tournament that he played in in new york go to hoops or whatever i was right with them five star. You know what. I'm saying right there with him right there with them like you know he was he was. He was really supportive at that time. You know for my development lookout Who's on the couch is senior year. Shammgod guard talking clock Eric harris steph She move evans gary saunders. Oh larry larry. Abney larry adnia. He's with a. He's assistant coach with the clippers. Now I think my blunt played played a few games with us like we had a squad. We haven't lose to malone go alone. Didn't you guys lose. Till i. I must say like the dallas team or something in vegas. I just remember that there. There was like no way anyone who's going to beat you and you guys played like an early morning game against the dallas got. Beat yes yes. And that was makes you a bassin's team right. Yes yes we call them plastic man. That was team meal. I'll give you the other side to it right. Here's an everyday said about new about about like takao jets. Don't play them at night. If you can play them in the morning you play the night. Got no shot. Yeah we were. Yeah you well. Doug i'm five on the only person that got some rest was probably steph. Here's here's the only professional that was on the team value. Why did you choose providence. After that game against when we played against dallas. Yeah that's when Bobby gonzalez recruited me. That's when he was like that's when they gave me the offer. Because sometimes like like i can hang out late in do whatever at night and i can wake up because my body was kind of accustomed to it right so that game i just i was. I was doing the same thing. Like like rebound bringing the ball court and making certain passes in certain sites. Like i've played a totally different way with the gauchos. Then that lincoln. I'll play more like a small forward power forward with the gauchos and lincoln. I would just stuck to the five. 'cause i was the biggest guy there and yeah but The reason why i chose providence is because you know every school in a country that was including steph to get staff there was gonna including the packers though i'm talking about syracuse georgia tech. Ucla every school. It was like well. We're him in there too. If you come you know basically yes. So that wasn't gonna work right Steph stuff pops was like no you need to get out of steph shadow and do your own thing and you know my parents the brahmins. Everybody felt the same way. So it boiled down to two schools right. I had you wanna recruit me. They wouldn't want to be Take monroe spot and then my coach like no. He's not a for five. He's just forced to play this position at lincoln. He's he's he's he's a legit small forward. So and i think that's when calipari was in Jim beano Jen i know what's name building. Oh yeah bill bain. Oh yeah yeah. So there were there so that didn't work out and then narrowed down to school was right so rutgers university in providence college so i went on my college visits so my first college visit was Add official college visit at rutgers university. And you know my parents you know. They were heavily involved Province heavily involved so my host was charles jones. So we you know we brooklyn guys. You know what we like to do. So he He was my host And i went talk couple. I went to a practice i went. I sorta facility. And then at night he said five. I got you then. He showed me around campus. And then i just had a ball for like that. I just i had a great khan. I thought i was in coney island with a bunch of intellectual people so And when i get home to my my parent's house the brabham is they said how visit. Oh my god it was great. I had the best time i like. I'm going to rutgers university. There's like oh okay all right. That's fun but we don't want to make a decision yet. Let's let's let's try providence. This picture officials they didn't know the official providence. It's free you've you're flying air so i was like all right.

"Be honest with the i know it. It like riles people up. And i didn't have making the roster and he's not. I don't think he's necessarily like not going to make the roster. But i think it's certainly something that should be on people's radar thing. Yeah i don't think what no offense. No great great athlete. I think he deserves to be on a roster but all all he does is run very does run extremely fast. That's what he has. He has good sized too. I mean i think he plays her two hundred so he's got to see. Has it helped. The graham statler techniques need still need some polish Niessen polish heating bala tracking abilities still needs some polish again. The only league thing do very well is he can run as it sounds like a special team has sound like a key guy. You're cornerback rotation. So i think he'd really is fighting force. Flatman is not a guaranteed. Unless you're things yeah. So yeah. So i i like that. We are also hearing. Is oliver getting the first chance in the slot. Play a lot better there. Yeah so you know. That's that's cool. avery. Williams and darren hall. I don't you're the one that's watch holiday. You think he's more of an outsider slot guy in the nfl. I think hall was more of a balaji corner hall is is going to be the one that's gonna give sheffield a fight for that russia spot. I think halls gonna make the roster. It'd be now he's you know he's gonna saying like if if sheffield wants to stay on the roster he's gone best that's one guy that he's going to have to be better than and i'm not quite sure he will be to be honest with you. darren hall is the what darren hall has that jeff doesn't show is this stakes are gonna stand out or did he ever harbor interception already at some point otas rookie navy. Maybe that yeah. I think he was the one that did come down with something like his first. The first or second Rookie minicamp so it was like this right there. He's already showing went as better than kenosha. Yeah that's the thing like an indian. Ps defense you just gotta be opportunistic. And like i think. Ship dan quinn. You know. Valued athletes at corner a lot. More and i think we've seen from the two picks the falcons had they went after guys. Who were ball hawks. Some guys that are opportunistic. Because i think the fa- dp and the facts understand like look. We're not going to out talent. He went on defense especially this year. So like we just need to come up with like a turn if we can average like one turnover a game better like that might be enough for our offense like if our offense is what we think it can be and we can run the ball a bit better like we might not need to be a great defense. We just need to create a turnover to shorten the game a little bit and then we could get by with blitzing and kind of covering up in papering over the weaknesses on this defense by being aggressive. And look. we're gonna make mistakes too. But i think that's the best strategy so we said that after the draft we pointed out the fact that what they have in the secondary right now are are a number of guys that are able to capitalize on turnovers because of their ball skills. This is going to be a. We may not see a guy that has the visit sax this year. I'm willing to bet that. But i think we'll ps is going to try to incorporate. Is that aggressive front. Seven and a back in a secondary that is able to make those plays. Because again you're going to see you wanna see some rush throws you're going to see some overthrows piracy's and tip passes. You're gonna see some some quarterbacks that are fluster trying to make a play and on backing unique guys that can turn into receivers with the ball near. And that's what they did with darren hall and enrichment so yeah. Yeah so it's yeah. I think the secondary is kind of coming together a little bit. I mean. I think it's gonna be great. But you know as opposed to where we stood after they cut ricardo allen. And let walk. And let davante as you walk like. It's doron harmon. Richie grant eric harris eight. That's decent three safety group. Like i mean it's not maybe the highest end group in the nfl but it's very versatile. All three of those guys can play in the box poor deep or cover to look so they can move around like the. Mp's likes you know. I think the corner group is not great. I mean we'll have to see how the rookies do. And i do think they make another addition cornerback or a linebacker. Probably the two most likely spots that are maybe edge on defense but like like. Jc jackson would be perfect like that. I think would really take this over the edge. You don't have to force fabian. Moreau to star outside. But i think they'd be moreau's probably better as like your corner three your primary backup and then you. Can you have oliver in the slot or whoever but more rose. I think i think so. Too honestly. like marc mckee's farm jesse jackson. But yeah right is. He's not he's not. You know a special type of talent but you know. He's i think he's gonna be just fine out there he. He played very well at times in washington on edge it was it was the slap where they try and the washington try to make him be a slot corner in s mathis day. And and that's where he that's why he went awry I think a like a monday or manage. Yeah yeah. I liked that a lot better to see. We'll see what darren hall and avery williams. Like i don't know if he's going to get a lot of run on defense this year but i think they're going to see what they have and see if they can trust him to play the slot in the future. Maybe he's a guy that just needs more experience. I think but. I think his freshman and sophomore year. She had eight and nine pass deflections in each year. So he's a guy that can get his hands on. The football size is really his thing. So we'll see if We'll see if he can carve out a role too. But yeah i mean williams's path will be special teams and we haven't heard too much about how that competition between him enroll into going. But i think darren hall. Probably pretty safe kendall sheffield. Is someone who we talked about. Probably going to have to show something in camp. Unless he's banking on them keeping six corners which we know dean pees likes to run a lot of three safety stuff so you know them. Keeping six is not a guarantee they might want to keep five safeties. Tj green guy. A lot of people don't know he did. Green is a good player. Like he's he's a decent. You know extra safety and they still jalen hawkins too so they might want to keep five safeties. I think a lot of that also is going to depend on. And we got. We just got done with this. What is not the result of a. Julio trade is far as clearing that castaways because they get the cap space that they're looking for they're going to have some extra cash to to bring in some free agents all season and you're still a couple of guys at there on on the market as safety that i think you know the team may give a look me cooker is one guy that comes to mind Often injured but you know if he's healthy and he's he's able to incorporate those ball skills as well right. He's going to be a nice pickup for this offense secondary month. Yeah i agree. I agree so all right next. Topic left guard battle. One of the most interesting battles most important battles of training camp so far it looks like josh andrews is leading the competition which is surprising because like we said like twitter. He's a veteran. he's probably going to get the first crack just because of experience but Evan i'll let you get a word in here we just been talking. But what do you think about the left guard battle so far..

"I saw that A team that made this list where the denver broncos and i'm going to have to disagree. They got patrick. Sir tan in the first round and they traded up to get to devante williams in a second round. They got in my mind the best corner in the draft and they got what some people thought was the best running back in a draft. Why is that bad. I don't i don't don't really get it and it's like well. You're already paying. Melvin gordon. Melvin gordon what is he my age. There's nothing wrong with the donkey's draft. There i wish there was but there wasn't The colts they got thrown into the. What are you doing category along with my race and Quit e pay. Look i would have taken quickly pay at seventeen. He was there that's not a bad first round. Pick and then you think about You odhiambo the defensive end. Sean davis the safety. The only thing that the colts got thrown into this was that they really needed some tackles and they didn't address remember. They took sam etlinger in the six round. Just a little fun little thing for carson wentz to think about As i said with my my raiders if they had taken trayvon marriage in the first round and alex leatherwood in the second round. I would have thought job now. The whole thing about. Are they gonna move. Jonathan abram look First of all eric harris has gone thankfully he signed with atlanta. He had one great game with to pick sixes other than that. He didn't know how to cover him but they they signed Carl joseph back who actually had a good year with cleveland. The guy the I didn't want to correct Sycamore on the air. But the guy diablo. They drafted out of west. Virginia he he or vodka. I think he's actually being moved to linebackers. That's not another safety but Jonathan abram has trouble staying on the field because he's injury prone and also he won't shut up and the late hits. I mean how old are you. I knew guys in high school that would do late. Hits and then they would get penalized and benched in yelled at punished and then they learned their lesson. The schedule hasn't learned it. It's like when draymond keeps talking keeps talking gets teed up keeps talking. Don't do it don't do it. Shut up shut up your thrown out the saints now. I thought getting paulsen day go. In the third round was great value. He was one of the best cornerbacks in the pac twelve at stanford but the defensive end peyton turner. Some people don't like him Pete werner the the linebacker some people thought was a bit of a reach in the second round. And i'm not an ian book guy. I don't know why you would draft ian book in the fourth round when you're already paying a chunk of money for tastes them hill and jameis. Winston is there if listen if if anybody's in the seventh round i will never criticize seventh round. Pick unless that pick is for jerry burke. I'm never going to criticize it if he in book is still sitting there in the seventh round go ahead and bring them in the fourth round so as i say we judge these a lot of people like to give letter grades you know. How did you do not do in the end. We won't really know for a while so to say winners. And losers i think is the is the bad Is the bad call. Now remember when kyle shanahan was asked about Will jimmy garoppolo beyond the roster on sunday and his quote was. I can't guarantee that anybody in the world will be alive on sunday. So i can't guarantee who will be on our roster on sunday so that goes for all of us remember what he said that and by the way shanahan politized to garoppolo for that he said. I totally bombed that on monday. I hated how that came off. I talk to jimmy about it right away. I didn't realize that. When i did it a person i have a relationship with who sometimes when he asked me what i think is silly questions. Sometimes i mess with him back. And that's kind of what i was doing. That was between me and that guy. That has nothing to do with jimmy. When i said. I don't know if we'd be alive on sunday. I was just trying to get not get my typical answer of guys. Anybody can be traded if you get a bunch of ones john trade. Me and i shouldn't be here on. Sunday. that's the answer for every person on our team but jimmy situation is if he isn't here on sunday i would be disappointed because jimmy is a quarterback who has played one year full year and took us to a super bowl played at a high level. He said some unfortunate injuries. But i do believe in jimmy as a person and he's shown what he can do on tape all right now. Microsoft low. The nfl network says that several forty niners players. Including george kittle and others called. Kyle on sunday and said coach. I'm alive. I just wanted to let you know. So they're throwing that.

A Decade Of Watching Black People Die
"Family of Kentucky Woman, shot and killed by police is demanding answers. The former, his son both white are accused of killing the unarmed black man again with the breaking news for Minneapolis violent protests raged for a second straight night, following the death of George Floyd after being arrested by a Minneapolis police officer last night, protesters turned their attention to the city's. The last few weeks have been filled with devastating news stories about police killing black people. And what is sick is that these stories have become the kind of news that we in the business call evergreen their stories that are always relevant and always in season, these calamities are so familiar. This point they're details have begun to echo each other July. Twenty fourteen, a cell phone video captured some of Eric Garner's final words as New York City Police officers sat on his head and pinned him to the ground on a city sidewalk. I can't breathe. Or May twenty fifth of this year those same words were spoken by George Floyd. Just before he died, he pleaded for release, as an officer kneeled on his neck in pins of the ground on a Minneapolis City Street, so we're at the point with verbiage, people used to plead for their lives can be re purposed as shorthand for completely different stories and part of our job here coast, which is to conceptualize and make sense of news like this. But genus is hard to come up with something new to say you know things we haven't already said or things we have already recorded protesters saying when we were both in Ferguson in August of twenty fourteen after Michael. Brown was killed by the police or when we were in Baltimore after Freddie Gray's death. I spent the day with junior. High school kids in West. Baltimore where Freddie Gray was from on the first day. Let kids return to school after all the protests and I will never forget the eighth grade boy who raised his hand to ask. Why have white people been killing us in slavery and they're still killing us. He said that on Wednesday April Twenty Ninth Twenty fifteen. Since it's so hard to come up with any fresh insights about this phenomenon. We thought we would look back to another time. When the nation turned collective attention to this perpetual problem. Jamile Smith Senior Writer for Rolling Stone magazine. In when I was at the new republic. wrote an article entitled. What does seeing black men die? Do for you. It was published on April Thirteenth Two Thousand Fifteen. We get to see black men tortured or killed by police a lot more often these days. So, it's worth recalling why a generation ago. It mattered so much to see what happened to Rodney King. Now the story that might never have surfaced if someone hadn't picked up his home video camera. We've all seen. We have certainly seen the black and white photographs and videos depicting police abuse of African Americans. And we'd seen the grainy images of lynchings passed. But the conventional ignorance was that this wasn't the America. We lived in now. Officers beating a man they had just pulled over. This was the early nineties after all. This was in America that viewed law enforcement in the context of the popular reality, show cops, and were Morton Downey Junior tabloid television style made uncensored aggression a form of entertainment. But when George Holidays video surface chuck him with batons of between fifty three and fifty six times signal to a lot of citizens, just how bad police violence visited upon marginalized communities, actually was six kicks and one officer one kick people either didn't know what was happening. or willfully ignorant of it. They needed to wake up. Say The Los. Angeles Police Department has a history of brutality and misconduct that goes back a quarter of a century day. We are not sure that the police is there to protect us. The fear of becoming the next Rodney King is still here. But what has changed is how often we are viewing that fear being realized. Jamal goes on to write that the ubiquity of cell phone cameras and dashboard cameras means this uncensored horror has become available on demand. He says he watched twenty two year old Oscar grant get shot and killed by a police officer on Youtube before it made it to broadcast news. That happened in Oakland in two thousand, nine on New Year's Day. And it really marked the beginning of this grim genre, in which the slain become memorialized as Hashtags Hashtag justice for Oscar grant and remember Walters Gun Eric Harris, Jomo rights videos of them, being killed became public almost back to back in two thousand fifteen. Both men were running away when the shots were fired. Walter Scott Fifty was trying to escape North Charleston police officer Michael slager. Who Shot him eight times in the back? Before planning evidence near his body to support a false account of the incident. Eric Harris was running from a team of Tulsa County deputies when Elderly Insurance Executive Robert Bates.
