"Want to move up there either, if the pingers want to move up, one of three things going to happen, they're going to move up. That are that are two things, they're either going to move out for that team. Just doesn't want to budge. They're not going to get outbid because they, they can put the best offer on the table outside of Denver, who I still think the quarterback talk is a little like I think cuz they were in the DeShaun Watson thing and I think that got people going like oh quarterback like dreadlocks still a good Young quarterback, I'm not sacrificing future assets to move on from Drew lock. Now it's John Watson and the guy who's proven yeah I would but I don't think they're in the space, we're moving up from 9 to six 9 to 7 and giving up a future first to move on from a twenty-four-year-old quarterback, for a guy who was a wild card. That just doesn't seem worth it to me. Yeah, so the Bears that you mentioned Kyle Trask and I feel like the Bears are an interesting spot for Kyle Trask because he's the type of pass or that I think needs to be and a quick West Coast type of system. Right. He's going to want to get the ball out. He's going to want to live with the decisions are made for him. Yeah. West coast-based scheme seems to be the best fit for Kyle Trask. So yep. Could see the Bears liking him a little bit. He's got the size you know he's got some of those things that you like in terms of West Coast scheme so maybe they go that direction in Chicago, the football team. Interesting one, you know I think that they're going to be a little bit aggressive at quarterback too. But the point I wanted to make is that honestly, I sort of feel like the quarterback conversation is now going to offer full circle. And this is where I feel like we're going to get next week on Thursday night as we taught. All these conversations about Mac Jones going number three, to San Francisco. I still don't think he's dead for the 49ers. I know that's what everybody in the media wants to say, and wants you to believe, but I still don't feel like Mac Jones has to pick for the Niners at 3, which makes me think that the most likely outcome..

"If the Patriots drafted somebody like a Darius Tony or shot Bateman or something and just got this big time playmaker at wide receiver but you can wait on wide receiver off these drafts and get somebody later on on day three that I think is still going to have starter level talent. That that's how deep this class. Is this year somebody on day three, in this draft might really be a fringe banking another draft. I think there's starter level talent, draftable talent and a 3 for a lot of rounds. Like I think you can maybe get somebody in the 5th of the 6th round that will be a starter home or upside type of player, maybe not right now, that's why he falls, but down the road, maybe you can develop him into somebody like that. And those are a few of those guys. There aren't, let's have this conversation. I need job. You want to talk running backs? Alex, so I will let you talk about running backs. The Patriots. I have said it more solid at not that kind of need, but okay. Yeah, I said, you don't have to necessarily talk about Niger Harrisburg, but we've talked about it multiple times, that the Patriots have kicked the tires on running backs, this offseason and free agency, they haven't made a move, it running back yet. I think that there's a running back coming now. I hope it's not early as I hope it's not a premium pick but I do think there is a running back coming. Where would you say is is a target that you would feel comfortable with? Cuz I think a first-round running back would be a disaster. Sure. Yeah. Not. Not as your hair like sneaky need. Absolutely. All agree with that. Not to the first round extent. They basically need So they they have they're too early down back to the Sony Michelle and Damien Harris. That's right. They like to carry to passing game box as well. James White comes back. That's one, but he's going to be thirty very few running backs. Produce the age of thirty and there's really nobody behind him shade retailers, kind of in this in-between space. He's actually an early down back because he's not a great pass-blocker and that James White role as important as it is to be touched the ball. You have to be able to pass block to JJ. Taylor's more that Dion Lewis where he's a change of pace early down back so given they don't play rookie running backs in James White's kind of right up against it. Off the Patriots need to look to to find the next guy. So he can Redshirt this year and then, you know, just like James White to go with Christine Perrine Perrine, took over for Woodhead, would head took over for Kevin. Faulk, Etc. So where do they find? That guy? The earliest to me, you're looking right outside the top 100 and it's Dimitra filtered from UCLA. They've met with your, he's a great fit, didn't physically test. Well, I'm not scared off by that. I don't know how long. Feel I trust what I've seen on tape. I think that that was an anomaly had a bad day. I don't know. He had something bad for lunch. Whatever it is, I don't think they need felt at 1:20. There's some other guys. We've talked about Kyle and.

"That is maybe an extra Z, but I think that that's someone that they're going to want to play a little bit more on the outside but I think that the conversation of do. They really need another inside receiver, as much as I would absolutely love having somebody else. That could create after the cash at the ball in their hands. How how much do they really need? Another inside receiver and what outside guys do we like? Because as somebody else brought up the Patriots, history of outside receivers is not so great. Right? You know, Chad Jackson Aaron Dobson, the kill Harry, you know, it's not a great run for them with the outside, guys. So which ones do you feel? Config, New England and maybe feel better about actually working out here? Yeah, well, we've talked about this, and I think there's a chance that they give both Myers and born a chance to pull the X. Yeah. To see what those guys can do. And maybe that's the answer. You can't draft a guy. So you go and get a guy who, you know, can play in the NFL and you try to see how we Works outside. If they're going to go into Iraq I think you go down and a 3 and you just try to find a guy to push and kill and camping then either stash on the practice squad or trade to kill her. If he's good enough I just feel like I've at that point I'm going home run Jonathan Adams. The jump all threat of red-zone threat. The way their offense is built right now. They really just need the ex guy to be a red zone, threat Nico, Collins certainly wouldn't be a bad option. Either way, I'm not like super into the idea of them taking a big receiver. I don't especially if they're going to keep nikhil and there's been some rumors that he's going to be traded but especially if they're going to keep them. I just I don't see a need to take a big outside receiver. Yeah. So I think that the need is there for Truex. I actually really like Nico Collins. I think that he's a player that could succeed here. He has that outside speed, and he also timed really, really well in the three-cone. So he does have some agility or lateral movement, I should call it. He's not a guy as a jitterbug, at the top of the route. But at the line of scrimmage, I did see some pretty good Nuance in 2000. They didn't play 20/20 in his release package. I think is released package at this point, is much better than to kill Harry's. I think that he's somebody that can really wrong. The line build up his speed and if you're going to be an outside guy that's going to win with possession and contested catches, you have to win at the line of scrimmage. You have to move guys off the their spots. Be able to blow past them at them to scrimmage and open up your strides get, guys on your back and adjust the balls in the air. That's how you win as a contested receiver. And the reason why nikhil Harry struggled so much is because he doesn't get that movement at the line of scrimmage. And it causes him to wear coverage down the field, right? And allows those guys to ride his hip pocket and being good position to play the ball. So I think the.

"With your first deposit. Well, it's pretty easy to pick the undersized receivers in this draft, right? I mean, that's basically what ninety percent of the draft is. The other name is like, here's an interesting quite well. Give me your name and then there's an interesting question in regards to this conversation. Okay. So the other The name I wanted to mention that I don't think that gets nearly talked about enough in this wide receiver class as am on raasay Brown from USC. So he's the type of player to me that drives in New England, not necessarily the athlete that Kadarius Toney use or rondale Moore is or even jail and Darden. But he's just a technician and he's very very quick at the top of the route that translated to his three-cone time that he ran like a 681 month and the three-cone. And you see that quickness in his Ralph breaks the technical kind of Savvy. The ability to set up defensive backs, understanding of Leverage. I think he's the type of player that reminds me a little of Jacoby Meyers, but with the better athletic profile. And if I'm the Patriots, those are the types of guys that I'm targeting at the wide receiver position. I'm saying, no to terrorist Marshall. I'm saying no to die. Ami brown, black guys is prospects for other teams, but I want the guy that is going to be ready to go within the confines of this system. I think Amon-Ra st. Brown would run really Savvy routes instantly. Patriots, and would give you what your copy Myers does, but maybe with a little bit more athletic upside. So that's the other guy. I think it's not we we really haven't talked about him at all and I don't think he gets talked about it all terms of, you know, the conversation here in New England or in the Boston area and Right now, fair enough. I just think he and you kind of him. I think he's a little redundant Jacoby Myers and she's an upgrade over Jacoby Myers which is kind of why I would, you know, like even take him. I just I don't know that I'm using a Top fifty pick on just upgrading. I think somebody when there's probably be more in the second or third round conversation not necessarily the top 50 just because of the fact that wide receiver. That's what I'm saying. Their second round pick as forty six and then it's 96 and maybe they trade up but you know, especially we have Nelson. Agholor is going to be one receiver, you're really going to have only two receivers on the field. Voles the time you already have both Jacoby Myers and Kendrick Bourne who can play that role and I just, I don't like, I like the player. I think everything you said about the players, true, I just get in terms of roster construction management. I I don't maybe if they have a son can record, I'd be more excited about it..

"Cuz there was that story from I forget if it was Christopher price or Jim McBride was one of the globe guys that telling Mom has been texting with Josh McDaniels. He's been talking since the Senior Bowl so long if he's doing that, I think he's very involved and I think we know that he likes mon. It doesn't mean monsters favorite. He might be texting other guys and those guys just you know the stories not out there but yeah it's nice McDaniels is is very involved in in regards to the Tivo thing. I I I will touch on that and I get that hesitation and I certainly valid I'm not going to dissuade anyone from feeling that way. I just don't think there's a Tim Tebow in this. Well, there's a Tim Tebow in this draft but he's not. He doesn't have the same height train, it's Ian book. But our Ellinger. You know, both of those guys are kind of. I am Jared plays more like Tim Tebow right? Like an athlete playing quarterback. I think part of the well he books more like because they're both terrible quarterbacks but I think that the the draw with Tebow wasn't football skill. It was the leadership. It was that like Josh McDaniels thought he was getting a core like a captain. He thought he was going to get a guy to come and get ten fifteen year, captain in the football skills would be enough to justify it. That's what I think that pic was in that guy. I'm not saying none of these quarterbacks have leadership abilities but the guys are the best leaders in this draft are also the best quarterbacks, right? Whether it's Matt Jones with Justin feels like these guys could have made a locker room but they also don't have the throwing motion of a pitcher in the middle of Tommy John surgery. So I'm not too worried about the Tivo thing because I don't think in this specific case it's an issue off. If they take, if they take, Sam ehlinger Orion book in the third round, you can bring this clip back up and call me an idiot. That's fine. I just don't see it in this draft, right? And I think the question really was more also geared towards the fact that Josh McDaniels has in the past been kind of gravitated towards mobile. Quarterbacks outside of Tom Brady of course right in this guy's name that he is typically favored. At least in rumored wise favored, mobile QBs like a Tim Tebow like a Lamar Jackson Josh. McDaniels was apparently although they feel it's not Lamar Jackson, he is he can move around a little bit and the Patriots. Apparently really liked Baker Mayfield and that draft. So does that really matter? I mean I guess maybe in terms of the Mac Jones conversation, it could matter a little bit. But so many of these quarterbacks from fields to Lance to Monde. They're they're these guys are mobile. A lot of these guys are mobile home. I don't know if it's necessarily going to be a number one, sort of argument of Josh, McDaniels needs a mobile quarterback. But if he does want a mobile quarterback, there's plenty of them in this draft to pick from New Jersey and all from the first three or four rounds of the draft at some of those guys..

"Edition of the Patriot speed podcast Evan Lazar Alex Barth arrested box with Mark Schofield. And it's very deserving to have Mark on here with us. We are going to talk quarterbacks per usual whenever I have Mark on we usually Deep dive into the QB's. So obvious going to get into the draft QBs in the second. Justin Fields drive all the way down to Jaime Newman and Davis Mills and Kyle Trask and all those guys as well. But before we get into the nitty-gritty of it we did want to discuss quickly just the Jets trading of Sam darnold to the Carolina Panthers and this trade apparently came together when the Jets were like Justin Fields is pro day at Ohio State with Carolina there as well and I think Carolina took one. Look at Justin Fields is throwing session got his proteges. Like this guy's not making it to us at 8, right and and then they decided to make this move for Sam darnold. So that's where things stand right now. It's the Jets. I think we can basically shot in Zach Wilson at this point in New York and we can maybe get into that a little bit too. But just Mark your initial reaction to the Jets giving up on Sam darnold and be just shared Patriots fans. I don't want to use the word worried cuz I don't think anybody's ever truly worried about the Jets but does Zach Wilson moved the needle at all for you? Because to me it kind of feels like a trading Sam darnold for a younger Sam darnold at this point. Yeah. I mean, there's definitely some of that Evan. I mean I think with respect to this trade Carolina was looking at it like if we could sit at 8 and baby get Cuba four or five in this draft. We might not like that quarterback at all, you know potentially could before it could be Justin Fields as crazy as that sounds to me, but look a dog After again or Jeremiah or today saying that it's Matt Jones at 3. Which again? Okay. So Carolina was like look, we're not going to roll the dice that he's going to be there will take some sort of agency over this decision off and we'll go get a quarterback will get a year or two out of Sam darnold. We can build around him if he works out great. If not, we'll have to reset the quarterback decision two years from now and if anybody could sort of fix Save Arnold aside from just getting them all from Adam gase. Maybe he'll Brady can do it. So I understand it from Carolinas perspective. I think as far as Wilson to the Jets, um, it's a scheme fit, you know, you see the production company had from his sophomore junior year. It was in a lot of those outside Zone boot action will flourish and hand McVeigh system, which is going to be running. So the ski if it makes sense, I mean, you know, you say Sam darnold I say maybe there's some Baker to him. Yeah, either way..

"Hey everybody. This is Evan Lazar and Alex Barnes and 98.5 on the Patriots beat podcast talking quarterbacks. We're going to talk a little bit about free agent wide receiver and targets as well Alex, but I wanted to pictures pass-catchers past text receivers pass cash. That's a good point where we're talking about has no keys right there. We saw today earlier today Daniel Jeremiah. He released his second mock draft and had the Patriots taking JC horn from South Carolina cornerback. And that made a lot of people unhappy. I think everybody in Patriot Nation is really a hundred percent focused. I would say on quarterbacks and pass catchers as as you like to call them and there's really interesting report that we want to discuss here on the Pod today from ESPN's Mike Reiss just came out yesterday saying that the Patriots would like to move on a quarterback sooner rather than And later and basically that the timing of the move to attract free agents is important to them and I think that's a really interesting point. Basically, what res is saying is that they would prefer a veteran quarterback that they can bring into the building to make other free agents want to come here other free-agent pass-catchers want to come here? I guess we can start with this in a lot of different directions, but I think the main place that we can start and I have also heard some Rumblings that the Patriots were not necessarily looking quarterback in the first round either. I think that's the most interesting part about the report is that given that he said he said that timing was so important to them that kind of doesn't sound like a Mac Jones or a quarterback trade up or something like that is necessarily what they're thinking about right now at least so I don't know the rules out a quarterback in the first round and I wrote about this yesterday and you can check it out on 98.5 The.

"That would be completely uncharacteristic of Steve Spagnola to give up 40 points to top right? You know, Tom Brady's high career high points that in those four games as 27 that was the wind and week week 10 of 2015 when Spanish went back to the Giants 2726. Game. I am feel like though wage and that she's offensive line injuries. This is a area where we should be talking about this because starting at left tackle probably for Kansas City on Sunday. It's going to be Mike remmers against Shaq Barrett in jpp, he's going to be a turnstile. He was a turnstile against Von Miller the 2015 Super Bowl when he's with Carolina starting at tackle there and Von Miller just absolutely hate him up that entire game who won Super Bowl MVP. P off that game I feel like that is something that we can discuss is kin this Kansas City team get away with the fact that their tackle play is not going to be good enough against this this box front. There's bugs front should dominate this, you know, very very banged up Chiefs offensive line, but what the Chiefs can do and what I think they will do is on first and second down they are going to bomb the crap out of the box and the Chiefs are very heavy RPO team and I'm not just throwing that out cuz it's a buzzword. They lead the league in RPO percentage. They do it more than any other team in the NFL and what it allows them to do is it allows them to get guys a vertical but it also allows the ball to get out of Patrick Mahomes his hands quickly and it holds those Defenders, right? Cuz they gotta sit there run gaps. It's a like a play-action pass. They have to sit in those bounds for an extra pause. So they're not getting after the quarterback and Kansas City is Playmakers, especially tired of killing Nicole Hardeman. They're so damn fast. They can still get up on a vertical even though they're going to get the ball out wage. Glee under two and a half seconds on the RPO action. They can still get vertical which is you know, unbelievable and Mahomes he reads in our most rpos. You read the backside linebacker. That's usually the guy of the corax reading if he comes in steps up into his Gap you throw it if you stay as bad in the passing Lane you hand it off but homes will read Corners. He'll read deep safeties in RPO options and the Bucks like to play those two deep-sea else and if those safety starting to creep into the box on those our POS and he's going to sing it right past them to to Tyreek Hill and I think that that's going to be the game within the game is what's Todd Bowles is it just need those RPO packages because that's where the Chiefs are going to go on first and second down, but I feel like you know, so what's his adjustment going to be it has to be to not list right. Now that bumper is what he's going to have to do right and you just said it but that's what he wants to do. And this is we did talk about this last.

"Six there's a top six months from from Lawrence to Trask and then mande think has established himself as as quarterback seven. Yeah, he's he's solidly in the second group. He's solidly in Not Dead. The top six but he's at the top of 7 plus. Yeah, and and it's actually a good set and I wish I had it right in front of me, but I believe it's in the last five Patriot quarterbacks that they have drafted have all been seen them and they've all been multi-year starters as well. So the majority of them have been SEC guys to that that's true too. But it's funny that a lot of these guys that the Patriots like to draft a position. They really emphasized experience, you know, it hasn't really important trait for them and a guy like a tray Lance is a one-year starter. Matt Jones is a one and a half, you know, almost two full years starter. So maybe Mac Jones checks that box enough for them but a guy that's a senior that's been around the block that's been in Jimbo Fisher system for a couple of years, which is an NFL pro style system. It's not like he's out there running air raid RPO type of Concepts all the time. This is a pro-style system that Jimbo runs with Texas A&M. He checks a lot of those mid-round Patriots boxes. So definitely be on the lookout for Kellen ma'am. In the veteran quarterback Market the follow-up from the Matthew Stafford trade. So I think what was really interesting about this trade and we were texting all day on Saturday when it's sort of felt like this trade was coming by the name of the weekend and we were talking about nobody was talking about the Rams first of all as and it sounds like the deal according to Albert Breer was done with the Carolina Panthers. And then the Rams swept in at the last second and up their offer and were able to steal away Matthew Stafford from the Carolina Panthers who were actually going to give number eight in the draft for Matthew Stafford. So I thought we talked about Carolina we talked about San Francisco. We talked about teams ahead of the Patriots. Which Optics I think what you realized is is that these trades are becoming more and more like basketball trades where the other team might not get an equal player back likes Matthew Stafford as clearly better than Jared Goff is the best player in the trade, but it's kind of like you trade quiet Leonard for DeMar DeRozan, right? You need to get somebody back to replace the game. That you're trading away and I think that's interesting for the Patriots because they don't have the quarterback on the.

"When the first round of interviews came out and it was a lot of the names we expected Robert Saleh Eric be enemy who should be hired by the way in Buffalo, right like Friday, but thank you. It was like, where's McDaniels? He's back in New England where he should be like this. I'm not surprised. Raw this is to me. This is a great example of some guys are just meant to be coordinators. Some guys are just meant to be positioned coaches. Some guys are just meant to be coordinators the page a bunch of those guys in the past. Don't discard Nikia never wanted to climb up the ladder, you know, as happy as an offensive line coach was one of the best position coaches of all time in NFL history and live in New York. But at the same time he did not want to be an offensive coordinator. He had a great ton of say in sort of the big picture of especially in the Run game designs of how the Patriots ran their offense but never wanted to actually have the title offensive coordinate. Josh McDaniels has bigger aspirations. He wants to be a head coach. He told us as much before at the end of the season and his end-of-season press conference. He said I still have aspirations to them and Coach the problem that we're finding is that because of all the reasons that you mentioned with the Colts with the Broncos his leadership skills his ability to be the CEO of the football team. He hasn't been able to log Tell anybody on that Howie Roseman the general manager of the Philadelphia Eagles was ready to hire Josh McDaniels. Do you like to McDaniels? He enjoyed his time in the interview that they had with him that lasted all day. Last Sunday McDaniels was there for twelve thirteen hours or something like that, but the Eagles brass it was closed the person that pulled the, you know, the rug underneath it and didn't like it was Jeffrey Lurie the Eagles off because the Eagles owner kind of felt like wait a second, it's Abella Texas Eiffel. They haven't done very well, but Daniels has a lot of these issues as well of this kind of being a leader in being that CEO type of the organization. I'm not 100% sold on this let's continue to do our due diligence and look at some other guys and that's what ended up happening and here we are sitting and they didn't hire Josh McDaniels and I think this is going to be Josh McDaniels is Destiny to just be an offensive coordinator and I think he's a pretty good offensive ordinary. Then you gets a lot of flack for not having great talent the last couple of years. Is he the best place? Caller know sometimes the situation will play calling the second and long is the 3rd and Longs where he's calling screen passes when he's not really dying up anything creative. It gets frustrating..

"Song. Deebo Samuel one way at Emmanuel Sanders the other way to get an electric offensive line with Raheem most or behind it, right and he had a great great fullback. Let's not forget about Kyle use check in a great defense by a defensive coordinator who is now head coach of the New York Jets. That's the biggest reason why the 49ers in that getting to begin with the problem is is can the Patriots build the rest of the Ross or on defense and offense bound to be the quarterback. That is Jimmy Garoppolo. That is four cousins. That is that level of a pastor that isn't somebody that is going to really do something on his own. So to go back to what you said before right about how the Patriots have all these assets and they can go they can go get themselves in Allen Robinson if they want Hunter Henry potentially all this right away if you are going to do that. Is it Matt Jones the kind of quarterback you need isn't it worth it at that point to draft the Mac Jones and save those draft assets and build up your future and get guys behind all those players you sign so you can keep it going once those guys page out. The question is is which one would you rather? Would you rather have the quarterback that the All-Pro quarterback All-Pro caliber quarterback. I should say in terms of talent physical talent that you can then I use your mid round picks go use your cap space to add the guys around him or would you rather have like what you're suggesting a more complete draft? All right where everybody is sort of fitting in that plays and you keep all your pics and you're able to do all those things. That's I think a very good question. I want to get into this breaking news right now because we all about the bills and the Chiefs like Thursday. We do we pick the line is that over I didn't want to talk about it. I want to talk with that that out. Their Chiefs are going to the Superbowl. I think they're going to win that game, Philadelphia p Eagles we were going to talk about Josh McDaniels candidacy with the eagles. They have decided to hire Colts offensive coordinator. Nick, sir, sir, Romanian. I think it is. I've never heard that name for now. So I was hoping you knew it. I think if this makes all the sense in the world, I think it's actually hilarious in a lot of ways that the the Eagles cannot quit the Andy Reid coaching tree wage. Quit they can't quit it. So any read of course goes to Doug Peterson then from Doug Peterson, it goes to a Frank Reich disciple and experience. I can't say it took the offensive coordinator. That is really where we're at right now. Josh McDaniels riady. There you go. See reality. That's not that hard not going to Josh McDaniels will not be the next coach of the Eagles. What is the deal with Josh McDaniels? I know you're not as eye on them as I am. So why does nobody have any interest in this guy? Also, I do think it is interesting, but the Eagles went with Joe. It's Ronnie and instead of Vietnamese food on Siri like your phone by morning. This is why you should be hosted Sirianni that I think it is funny that they went with him instead of Andy Reid's guy and Eric Bana me. They went with Frank Reich Sky instead continuing a long line of offensive-minded coaches in Philadelphia. They are never going to hire a defensive coach as long as the owner of the Eagles, but.

"At a bargain price at a bargain price and a great price. So I'm all for the Stafford trade. I just I do think it would be Thursday. It's a good question of do you trade the farm so to speak for Violet Stafford or you do just trade the farm to move up to draft Trae lands, right? You know, right? Yep. It's kind of one way or another it's going to be the first couple of weeks in March right in right in a couple of days when they these unofficial trades happen, right? It's going crazy because some of the teams are going to be staffers might be on the market mind might be on the market Carson Wentz might be on a on a market you're saying it's gonna be crazy and there's other quarterbacks in the draft that everybody loves. So so you got you got four quarterbacks in the draft. Everybody loves you got wins. Ryan Staffing could potentially Jimmy G potentially probably a more of a long shot. But Dak Prescott, maybe. Oh no comes free. I know that one that would just be ridiculous. But basically you're going to have nine or ten quarterbacks when we know every single year. There's extremely high demand for quarterbacks across the League. This is a recipe for a spending spree. Like we've never seen at the quarterback position really dead. Adela race yeah, these guys now we have you ever seen before so that would be a lot of fun from an entertainment perspective the last free agent on the outside. I want to ask you about that going to go rapid fire with you to wrap up with some of the Patriots on free agents. Okay Hunter Henry everybody. I hate to make a plan on based on somebody being stupid. Okay, so the charges would have to be stupid not to tag him again and not to extend them when you have judged Herbert on your team. Correct? They could he become free. Yes, cuz the picture Den send them to a deal similar to Austin Hooper four years forty million two million dollars like 10 and 1/2 million dollars. Yes, they could then we'll people will say why they get ever give that money to drop Comcast from Kelsey's agent was an idiot assignment such a long-term deal. Yes, but I would not plan on having how to Henry on the thing because I I The child would have to be stupid. Right? I just tagged them already this year, but the tight end tag is so low that it was he's going to get a 20% raise right? It's not that big of a it's not that substantial solid getting a quarterback a second. No, no, no. No, so like so his tag number that you would be around 12 million dollars big. Right? Right, right. Exactly. So those are some of the big ones you mentioned Allen Robinson are already I think some of the other guys. Okay. Yes is if they want to go that direction, you know, Corey Davis and I'll say this about a wide receiver folks, especially you say, well the pictures won't spend that much money off a number one receiver will makes the Patriots better at five different positions. Your number one wide receiver. Number two wide receiver number three wide receivers number for wide receiver and number five wide receiver. So he think of that way if you improve your white wide receivers position at five different slots, that plan could be a bog and even if it's a 20 million dollar plus player..

Could a Stafford Pick Help Bring the Patriots a Super Bowl Victory?

"You mentioned Stafford a little bit know. I know you said on Twitter that you are no on Stafford because of the compensation that they would have to trade to Detroit. I think he's going to for a phone Pig So I think you know, how do you feel about it from just a cat perspective that perspective if you think he's the guy right kept expecting he's he led to get he's got low Captain the next two years you could do the whole those drafted quarterback this year next year and you can bring and he could be dead quarterback even with a highlight with a high relatively High cap number for the Patriots for the quarterback position. Is he worth that kind of at his deal is he I think he is. I I just don't think that the Patriots are going to be the one who comes out the highest offer, right? That's I think the biggest problem too is because they because they played their way into the number 15 overall pick. It's a good first round pick but it's not a high-end first-round pick any more and they're probably going to end up having to package multiple pics in the deal. Matthew Stafford, which is alive, but I think the only reason why I brought it up is because with Belichick he doesn't want to lose anymore. He's sixty-eight years old. If you can get a guy like Stafford office create another Superbowl window pretentious, right? Yeah. It's probably a three-year window with Stafford as your quarterback where you can add pieces around to bring, you know, have them bring Kenny golladay. I'm from Detroit or whatever you want to do and you can you know work with with fire now, right? We're not that you call you Bruce sets and the Jimmy G's of the world.

He was going to be or wanted him to be if you're a fan of his yeah same time. You know, how much Bill loves him the night or said? Well, we know almost he'd loved loved loved.

That's the thing people keep on saying that bill loves Gigi that's based on his actions from several years ago. We don't know he loves Jimmy Dean now. I am of the opinion that I don't know how built who's who keeps on saying availability is an ability can love Jimmy G. It's a great point and I think that the the other point that I wanted to ask you about obviously capitalised was home. At twenty-five million this until we won in twenty-five million in 2022.

How Do the Patriots Calculate Their Salary Cap Number?

"Do it like a first-year number is usually around 30% of the total deal and I want to go from Have my 13 219-222-2224 around those around that. All right, so that's what they do. So so let's say they sign off if you sign the player, let's say to a hundred million dollars. Huh? Allen Robinson. Allen Robinson is probably going to get twenty over. Let's say a hundred million dollars, you might get more than that, but five year at $1,000 if you sign with the Patriots, let's say let's do that 13% of that. Let's just like 13% of that. We thirteen million dollars would be his 2021 cap number. It wouldn't be twenty million dollars. So so that's how the pictures could sign several. Elite players to the deal if they continue with the structure. It's really up to how much cash the Patriots are willing to to allocate this year two thousand this year and I'll say this 2021 is the first year of the three of a the cash spending requirement. Right? Right. They know and I you know, I'm pretty sure they had they had to have met the 89% been requiring for last for the previous four years. Without the most expensive typically the most expensive player on their roster to QB right now is we difficult for the patience to get to that meet that need a spending requirement for the next three years without if they have a rookie deal with a rookie on a quarterback for a frown rookie such thing. So you want to so if they have let's say they exact trade up and get a rookie quarterback, right? He's still be on a rookie deal. Now that you guys still spend cash to read that cash that minimum. That's where you spend the money on on the other place.

My friend loved loved your work Evan you killing you're killing. Thank you. I appreciate that. And and for those that don't know the story the media have a float or a a duck boat. I should say wage in in the parade every single time the Patriots won the Superbowl and Miguel and I were lucky enough to be on the duck boat following the win over the Rams and Super Bowl 53 that's definitely wage to five favorite experience. Yes on the beat Miguel and I know that you were pumped to be on there too. I'm I'm I actually like a fan I was like acting like a fan. I was going crazy. I was I was so happy. I've never thought it was one of the best days of my life the be on a on the the the be in the duck boat parade right in front of the players is just awesome sauce. So many fans come out I must have took over. 300 pictures, you know that day. It's it's awesome. It was awesome. It's I've said this before I'm I thought I was I've been more than lucky to see one live is Super Bowl winner winner have them see six in my lifetime is is more than anyone suspected. I just leave it alone like that. I I I was eating breakfast my mother the other day and I could hear in the restaurant some guy saying it should have 1:10. I'm like, I I don't know what you're thinking but the pictures are made it look so easy to win Super Bowls that somebody actually could say that they should have one ten and and but I'm not happy with sex. I think that's a good place to be happy with and yeah, I remember the beginning part of the of the parade. I tried to keep my cool tried to sell reporting. Orion professional and every opinion and not lose my mind but by the end of the parade the atmosphere just kind of took you over and everybody I think was was into it in terms of life and everyone I think came out a little bit there as the parade kind of went along and it was a day that I will definitely never forget. Right. They're up there with covering the Super Bowl in person was probably the best day of my life. So I'll put that as as number two, but it was very close number two, but we're going to sit here and and hash out. Hopefully the next Super Bowl champ for the page. It's obviously coming off a seven and nine season. They will not make the postseason. We all know that but Miguel we are having you on because you are the perfect guy to tee off the entire offseason and I think that everybody wants to start where we always seem to start with the Patriots in the offseason and that's what the salary cap especially after Bill Belichick's comments over the last couple of months saying that they were really a month. By the cap this off this past off-season and with the 2020 team, I think that the cab now is more part of the conversation than ever with Belichick putting that sort of thing in there as well..

Is this what the Pats need to do to improve their defensive line?

"In. I really like adam butler like dietrich wise a little bit but at both these guys i think point to the fact that the patriots defensive line is not where it needs to be right now and they have a lot of work to do a front and i would add to this next guy john. Simon sort of into that equation as well as an edge defender as a place where they could really use an upgrade. I would similar to atom. Butler is john simon and the fact that in his in his role right. Now i don't know if he's fully capable of handling it last year when they had a lot more depth at the edge in the linebacker of hybrid position with calvin nolan Land roberts jamie collins. A johnson played less than fifty percent of the snaps this year. He's now playing about seventy sound snaps on defense in production. Hasn't gone up at all nowadays. Play a slip This is starting essentially starting edge player with four quarterback heads into saxon the year so the passwords progression. Just isn't there at all and you still on the film. He's not really getting off blocks at all. He's now pressuring the quarterback from the edge and on he's coverage player. He's he's he's a veteran. he's smart. But i think ultimately if your signing him to be a seventy percent seventy percent of the defensive snaps guy is he. He can be liability times as you reduce his role some to to the way they wanna use in butler ideally then he can be more effective so it really depends argue with finding upgrade in the draft. Is you taken a plane. More snaps on the edges chase. Winovich can not mysteriously disappear at times and be more full-time player on the edge. Then john fits better. But if you're not going to do that i don't really think he's worth bringing back. If he's going to be a fulltime star that position they want you to rush. Cover drop the coverage off the edge and at the edge of the defense. And that's what you're gonna do as seventy percent player at opposition. It's really tough. I mean that's not an easy thing to do. And i i think the john simon does one of those things as starter level or baby obama replacement level. I should say and that set the edge. The other two things rushing the passer dropping into coverage. Not so much for the problem that they've route into is that chase winovich. Joshu are not ready to be every dow players yet so you're sort of caught with a bunch of one dimensional guys. J. winovich ideal passing downs players. But john simon's better more before stouter at setting the edge. It's like if you combine those guys to one player than the aggregrate football player. That's not how it works. I think the agents run into problems this year with sort of constantly needing to mix and match right in in rotate guys in and out of. What's the situation. What's the down and distance and that can work and they've done that effectively in the past but more a lot more. This season is aided in years in the past teams have identified those types of players and said okay. We know we have signed out here. We know we have winovich john here and they've been able to take a little bit more advantage of those types of

What the Patriots can learn from the BIlls' QB strategy

"Talk About That quarterback position because I think you know alot of patriot sales again, and I keep saying this but they don't like it when we point out at the bills rebuilding strategy is working in that the Patriots could learn something from Buffalo. So what are we going to learn from Buffalo? You know, they haven't won anything in twenty years, right? It's like no no, no. No, this is a great case study by Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott M how to put a Young quarterback in the perfect situation to succeed. Especially Young quarterback and Josh Allen who let's face. It was a high ceiling, you know, low floor type of prospect at very high bus potential if it didn't go to the right direction in Buffalo. So I looked at back at that 2018 draft. They actually traded up twice for Josh Allen's pick at seventh overall from Twenty-One wage. Because they made that playoffs or Tyrod Taylor, right? Was that the year? Yeah, so they made the playoffs with Tyrod Taylor Sweet in as a wild-card team. Then they were picking 21st. They traded up from 21 to 12 and then 12 to sneak in to get their guide Josh Allen, but I actually think more so and we can talk a little bit about Allen's development to more so than Allen's individual development. Would McDermott and being did to you know, make sure the offensive line to add Cole Beasley and Stephon Diggs and put Josh Allen in this perfect kind of offense for his skill-set with Brian table. That's really I think as much about what we've seen from Josh Allen's growth is anything in that sort of speaks to the team building process of the whole thing.

Patriots at Dolphins: Times are changing and this stat proves it

"I thought it was crazy that the past thirteen dolphin matchups dolphin Pat's match up before this one the Patriots were the favorites. That streak is ending this week that the Dolphins are two point favorites. In fact, it's 33 the past 34 think about how crazy that is. And the only time that that wasn't a dolphin's wage favorites before before this week with in 2013. If you remember the Dolphins went 2420 with safety Michael Thomas five days after being signed off the 49ers practice squad intercept Tom Brady in the end zone to seal the win. So that's one of the things I wrote about 2 in the channels are facing a Bill Belichick defense or again. Everything and anything about the Dolphins this week and about this matchup will be on on the website all dolphins on the SI Network. I absolutely believe that and that's why I had Al-Anon because I knew he would deliver the goods and I really appreciate it now and then in terms of the Patriots not being favored in this game. It's a disappointing as a fan but it's obviously, you know justifiable as somebody in an objective Observer and did this game and it's interesting times here in New England to say the least. This is I think even maybe even worth and then some people expected it's even better than other people expected with you know, the year after Tom Brady, so it's kind of following exactly where I think it should fall, you know, when you lose a quarterback of that caliber and you kind of get the reset button on your

Patriots at Dolphins: Alain Poupart breaks down Miami's running game

"The Houston was really the only team I would say that actually through on the Patriots effectively this year and DeShaun Watson besides Russell Wilson all the way back in week two thousand. I am curious, you know, the Dolphins do they have a running game. Do you think that they can do that with because I don't see it, but I don't want to I don't want to be biased over here. Either way. I mean, there are 30 second in the league in rushing yards per attempt. They were missing their top three rushing leaders last Sunday against the Chiefs. What's a be perfectly blunt? None of them are impact players Matt breida came off the covid-19. Wednesday obviously he'll be back. When he hasn't made much of an impact after coming over from the 49ers in the in the trade Myles Gaskin is on the Cove in list and he's a nice story as a second-year seventh-round pick who laughs basically got a cup of coffee in terms of playing time this year and he basically became their feature back and he's got some ability. But in a in an Ideal World Cup gasket is your backup is now your future back in this is what the Dolphins are dealing with our offensive line. Also a good story much better than was last year. They're starting three rookies with Austin Jackson am handsome in kinloch. but when you start three rookies pretty much ninety-nine percent of the time you're going to go through some growing pains and their offensive line while again exponentially better than what last year is still not great. Let's say it's worked in like but they're not a whole lot of big old being open in the running game and you don't have running backs off will make a lot of things happen on their own. So there's a reason again there there are thirty-second in the NFL in rushing yards per attempt and complicating matters. This week is they have injury issue is that wide receiver position where they also have a lot of players but not a whole lot of impact players. So you mentioned might get sick you earlier I believe and now he's got a shoulder injury where we can't get any Clarity from Ryan Flores as to his status for this week. It's all we'll see is working on all that. But if you saw the injury really really hard to Envision him playing cards Devante Port Parker pulled a hamstring or had a hamstring injury against the Chiefs you came out in the first app did not return. He practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, so hopefully play it but then if he plays this carrying a hamstring injury. And then so who else do you have left after that now you're looking at your team Grant who is more of a return specialist and and then their shuttle pass receiver gadget Play type of player on offense. He's also got a hamstring injury that knocked him out of Chiefs game. And then the rest of the wide receiver Corps is rookie limbo Junior who played multiple positions at Kentucky. You have a Mack Hollins who want to sign as a special-teams standout, which he is. He's very going to special teams but more so than the receiver and then you have one of the guys being talked up being able to make a major contribution as Isaiah Ford who you may remember from his three weeks with the Patriots after the acquired immune to trade in his office. I knew he was he didn't play it down for the Patriots. I knew how long is not going to last year when he got up here and he said it is freezing. I need a winter coat, you know, what am I going to do? And I just said look, I'm sure he's a fine football player. I'm sure he could make an impact on the team that needs wide receiver help but this guy does not seem like he wants to be in New England right now. Well, no, but he plays at Virginia Tech. So I'm so he's not like dead. He's from Jacksonville plant in Virginia tag, so it's not like he's not he's never been the call before and the thing about Isaiah Ford and then it was often friends are thinking. Well, Isaiah Ford is going to come and rescue the the passing game and that like life. He's a really really really nice good. And he might be in the league for ten years because he's got a great attitude. He works hard doesn't see anything. He's not an impact player. And right now this is what they have their wide receiver Corps. If she doesn't play they have nobody who's going to really scare the Patriots defense and if you you throughout the city also doesn't play. I mean who makes things happen on this office on Sunday?

Should the Patriots replace Cam Newton with Jarrett Stidham?

"Think this is where we need to start because it's where everybody is starting when we talk about the Patriots and where we're at with Cam Newton right now in terms of the Patriots quarterback of the here-and-now home and also maybe even looking Beyond here and now to the 2021 season even and here in New England you turn on Boston sports radio, and I'm not trying to pick on those guys, but there are definitely talking a lot about Jarrett Stidham and the possibility of benching Cam Newton for Jarrett Stidham. I think they're crazy. But that that's a topic for another day. Mostly I want to focus on what are your opinions right knee about how cam is playing and how he can obviously improve from objectively. What was a very bad game on Sunday against the Cardinals whether you're a chemist and or a cam hater. Yeah, and it wasn't dead. A game against Arizona and Arizona. First of all, I think you have to remember that Arizona's defense is a lot different than Houston's defense. It's a lot different than Seattle's defense back in week to that Houston game. That's you know game those were two games with Jim actually got the passing game going and you felt hey maybe they could put together a passing game that could actually be effective Arizona see on their athletic. They fly all over the place Isaiah Simmons budda Baker. Like they have guys that can play they have some different things and they certainly they were putting an egg nine guys in the box of times. I'm sure having you saw that as well. I know you have from some of the work you've done they were basically dare in New England like go ahead. S game by throwing the football and it looked like they couldn't, you know, they got a couple breaks at the end with a missed field-goal and Isaiah Simmons penalty then put them in position to win, but they didn't win that game because of the passing game, but you know, that often said, I think we all have to sort of take a step back and realize a couple of things one. You mentioned I studied quarterbacks. Each week at USA Today. I have to do what we call a QB camp where I put up five of my quarterback videos of the most notable quarterback performances. There are some weeks friends. It's hard to find five good quarterback package, which is league-wide It's just tough. This is one of those weeks like you might get Baker Mayfield than that because there's just not great quarterback players Patriots fans were spoiled from two decades of Tom Brady where we took the best at the quarterback position weekend and week out but then when you take a step back and you don't have that and you see guys like, you know, Derek Carr and his high variance play or Baker Mayfield in his high variance player. Look at Carson waves, I mean talk about somebody that's regressed. He's regressed all the way back to his senior year at North Dakota State quarterback plays tough. And right now we have a quarterback. That's high variance. Well, that's one thing. I think we need to remember the other is this he came in late in a strange year in the midst of a pandemic with no training camp more minimal training camp. No minicamps. No OTAs, no prestige. James be tough complicated offense to run that has so many different moving parts. You've read The Playbook, you know, Evan every road has like six different variations. I'm trying to do is hard. There are some play books that are easy. It's like oh, yes, this makes sense Bruce Arians Playbook. It's kind of easy. Nothing really changes Josh McDaniels doing the Patriots Playbook. It's like quantum physics for me. Like I I can't figure it out. And so to try to do that in the midst of all this is difficult. So with that context, I think you know, if you want to get into the home Jared versus cam debate. I don't really think there is one because as you pointed out this week on Twitter Bill Belichick has seen Jarrett Stidham now for almost two years. He's seen him every day in practice if Jake was going to be the answer to what fixed to what else is Patriots passing game. Yes, he would play him but he's not so that tells you what you need to know about Jackson them. I was on Jarrett Stidham home. Right before they signed Camp. I remember I wrote the peace and said look Jack said it was a planet quarterback everybody and I'm so glad I snuck in at the ad. Well, look if they could get can do it for cheap short not be great. But Jarod said it was a planet like two weeks later. I signed Cam Newton Cam right now gives them the best chance to win games. Is it through the passing game most weeks? Probably not, you know this week might be a get right opportunity. But if I you know, if for the 2021 season, I still think canvas done enough to earn the chance to win this job with a full complement of training camp preseason, all that stuff of the engine needs to get better at Short of the mechanics break. Absolutely not do they matter. Sometimes they actually do but right now he's the best shot they've got week in and week out to win games.

All the great folks cover wind, Greg, of course, Aaron Eric Your whole team over there does fantastic work I almost want to become one of you guys just joined bills obvious that I can. You know break down tape with you guys all afternoon. That's that's sort of their thing dislike minds. Greg. Thank you so much for coming on. We're doing a little home in home series year as well. If you WANNA listen to this from the opposite perspective from last night me breaking down the Patriots for the bills fans. Yeah. No thank you have great for you to join us last night and I think they will get more into it today that this is a lot bigger game than five and two against two and four normally feels it's kinda crazy. How how much anxiety? There is certainly on the bills Mafia side and I think for slightly different reasons within Kinda the PATS fan group that it's going to be quite a game. That's interesting that you said that there's anxiety on the bills Mafia side because if I was a opponent looking at this patriots right now and I think this is sort of. Not. Only bills Mafia but the rest of the country Vegas I think is this Patriots Aura and bill belichick aura at still exists even though Tom Brady isn't here anymore because if you look at this team is an objective observer from the outside looking in I, would be afraid to play the Patriots at all right now but it doesn't sound like those mafias feeling that their store sort of self healing it's still Bella check. It's still agents. Yeah. I think that's it's funny I think that's part of it. I think that there's a a wounded dog mentality. I think there's Obviously. Twenty years of being beaten into submission by Bella check is hard to unlearn all at once but I think that's part of it is that. We're not used to having expectations were not used to being favored in a match up with the Patriots were not used to going into a game with the Patriots on a three game. Literally, there hasn't been a game with a three game losing streak because they never lose three in a row. So it's just weird that you combine you know what this could mean for division of leadership purposes you know. Three and four versus six. Five three is way different than six and two versus two and five with a game in hand. That kind of thing on top of the emotional element of will hey, if Sean McDermott is ever going to beat bill check, this certainly needs to be the start of it and all those things that go along with that on top of the fact that now we're kinda supposed to it just creates a lot of a lot more anxiety than just a week eight regular season game would normally ever have absolutely nuts it rub it in but the patriots earn what six no again Sean Mcdermott and the three years he has been the coach there in Buffalo. That's what you meant by finally getting over that you're buffalo I wanted to start off with the bills offense though, and just make our way to the other side of the ball eventually as well.

"Donna hightower on books already they have. Cam. Newton's incentives that probably are going to hit that cap. He's going to outplay his contract and so on and so forth. Still GonNa have a tiny cap space don't get me wrong those fifty sixty million dollars cap space. But at the same time, it's not just free monopoly money that everybody's making it out to be okay. When people ask me when these patriots about a week and a half ago started opting out and wanted the patriots no that the rest of the League didn't I was thinking well, it's veteran players they have a super bowl ring. There's no reason with you know newborns as is the case with Patrick Chung I believe dont`a hightower there's no reason or obviously the health history cancer history of Marcus Cannon there's no reason to risk yourself on its season like this but F and this may be a little bit conspiracy theory. But what if? The Patriots. Kind of hinted to these players? Hey, if you opt out this year. We save ourselves a little bit more in caps faced going into next year. Could. That be a factor at all Evan or am I just spitting in the wind? Will the question really is what's going on Bill Belichick said does he look at this roster and I know everybody in New England whenever you bring up word tanking New England near light that's not even. Games that's crazy. I'm not saying that I'm suggesting maybe bill belichick knows that this is not a superbowl winner this year this is not a true contender that's not saying that he's going to go out there and purposely lose games, but he's going to have to lock into a super bowl run here but happens and maybe looks dont`a hightower looks at Patrick Johnny looks like can't need says you know how much longer do you guys WanNa play you WanNa play for one more year. Okay. Let's reset this year get some of the younger guys some reps you know what? I think it is. That make sense wrapped it. In next year in twenty, twenty one, we'll have all this cap space, the Great Free Agency class, and they'll go out ahead absolutely load up in the Bat runningback or super bowl or it's camera jared system whoever is under center that there is some truth to that I. Truly believe that nobody can objectively look at this roster and think that it has as good of a chance to win a super bowl as we've seen here in New England and the past and the Bell Bill is Calm anything. But he's one of the best at evaluating his own team. If not the best evaluating and I guarantee Yuki knows this seem as maybe they get a few lucky balances and the end up swinging into AFC title game but odds are that this team is not going to super bowl. I would agree with that and I don't think anybody listening to that would argue the fact that this is not a team favored. You know so many years in in years past the Patriots were five to two seventy to sixty two favorites to go to the Super Bowl and represent the AFC in the NFL's biggest game I don't think this roster. Is that speaking with Evan Lazar, our expert columnist covering the Patriots and the NFL or seal on US Media Evan, I want to ask you now. About. Another. Product of the covert era in training camp, and that is the Patriots have decided to go with one eighty man training camp roster. They could have gone with to forty man a to forty five men rosters not cut from Ninety Patriots decided to cut ten players why? Well I..

"One eighty weight eight loss dot com back with Evan Lazar, talking about what maybe the next guy that will be made as an NFL coach, and you know what I mean by this right Evan. A hot name that gets talked about talked about and talked about until he becomes. Part of the NFL Mafia, if you will of of great up and coming coaches and that we're talking about Jed fish today. He was a former offensive assistant guru. Actually brought up his. His wikipedia page as I always do, and he has been to say well traveled would be a massive understatement, actually started out as a defensive coordinator. In gainesville Florida and then he moved on. To the University of Florida working as a graduate assistant there in the NFL. He has already worked for the Houston Texans Defensive Quality Control Baltimore Ravens as an offensive Assistant Denver broncos wide receivers coach Seattle Seahawks, which I think you mentioned earlier quarterbacks coach, their Jacksonville Jaguars as an offensive coordinator for two years and twenty, thirteen and fourteen, and as the obviously mentioned for the La Rams as a senior offensive assistant in twenty eighteen. He's been around the block already. I know and he's only forty four years old. That's already done right, so he was apart. Sort of an extension, but but I would say a part of that Shanahan. College Hand Sean McVeigh. Matt Leflore Redskins Sort of coaching staff with Mike Shanahan and the twilight years of Mike Shanahan's coaching career and Shanahan was really the one that brought jed fish to the NFL now he didn't really go coach for Shanahan right away, but that was sort of the guy that vouch for him, in the NFL and he's also coached for as you mentioned the seahawks and Brian, billick and a bunch of different, other, really bright offensive mind, coaches, billick and Mike Shanahan, certainly to the better offense of coaches in their kinda respective Ariza football. So I think that this guy really is. is been around the block for a younger guy. He can relate to young quarterbacks because he's worked with young quarterbacks, his footwork and his ability to coach footwork is supposed to be his calling card as well as throwing mechanics so I those are going to be some of the things that he's going to work with jared. Sit them on, and then hopefully from more of a big picture standpoint kind of a scheme game plan type of situation I, think that he's going to have a pretty big influence of bringing on the Shannahan mcvay coaching tree to Bella..

"Right and if you do that, and you run wide zone with the full back, then you are basically just aiming it. Out that outside of the tackle, but is not quite as much of a stretch for the running back to get there because he can get vertical right away because he have the lead blocker in the backfield. Making sure he's free to do that right, so he do it with a bit of his lower back, but certainly the best scheme, the best outside zone success that teams have had. If you look at the rams. If you look at the niners, it was todd Gurley in La is, he's obviously extremely fast. Fast and inexpensive runner when he was at his best and now most, who's the track star so that those guys are really what's best for that scheme but I do think that Sony's vision and Sony's initial burst is good enough to hold up in that type of scheme, and he has ran some wide zone stuff with the Patriots. They did us to do it more so with Rob Gronkowski when he was around in two thousand eighteen, but they have started to implement a little bit more outside zone stuff. Has Sort of evolved James, White. Not that Guy Right now not that guy. I mean he doesn't. I mean he just gets himself in great position. To catch passes and he runs where their space right. Is A, he's more jittery more of a Jitterbug type back, we think. Great cut scrape. elusiveness Yes dad, sort of thing, and not so much that straight line speed, speaking with Evan Lazar covering the Patriots the NFL for s Media Dot Com. When most people try to lose weight, they think exercise whether they actually start exercising or not. The results are normally the same either way I say the.
