"And we're back on the alcohol. Podcast dave walker joined by gina. Kelly and we're going through your voicemails in reaction to the falcons loss in week. Two of the twenty twenty one. Nfl season against division rival the tampa bay buccaneers. We've gone through five of these. And yeah i it's about what i expected You're gonna love the last one. We're going to close out with a bang just for people believe me for those i previously so i know it's coming ahead of time that way like we're not getting like an infomercial in in the voice mail because it has happened before but Let's just jump into the next one. Let's see where this goes. What's going on this falcon here. Hey see potential name. That's something i couldn't say. We warn we gotta take the with around. Sometimes you know Talk about three phases. Though the puncher come on man you gotta give them something that put us behind. And i think that kinda hurt us when we got a little momentum you know they kind of gave it right back to so Kudos may feel this week. No he didn't get totally embarrassed. But let's talk about matt hennessy. I mean come on. I mean he. He's blocking dead. People like the kid who who knew that he grew up to become matt. Hennessy domain. no we got outmatched. We were outmatched but we weren't outplayed. I don't feel like a like you know. Playing probably one of the best teams ever could be you know from top to bottom and we gave them gave them fix and i mean mad some food and recessions at the end but i mean i i was impressed and i've seen the identity starting to know heads so let's just build off of that in the like doors michael as man gotta have face a first of all. I want this guy to please call back every single week. i think. I think that i need to hear that you know i mean what he said is correct. I definitely did see signs of what this team could be life. Keep saying like at least they had some fight in them So yeah. I really enjoyed hearing from that gentleman. That was nice uplifting message we get along those means days. I will do to say matt. Hennessy is the kid from the six sense has gotten that one has disrupted my week. Wait the most spectacular voicemail mail. I just absolutely loved it. Start to finish g. We've talked about this before. And i just wanted to reiterate this One of her friends on twitter. Betsy has said this before she. She intimated perfectly like falcons fans on twitter. Just have the best sense of humor and obviously in reaction to having to deal with this team but voicemails like that. I think sort of back that up you know where we just absolute comedy brilliance falcons loss. Also i my adopt the phrase. He got sometimes. You gotta take the lemon with the lime. yeah appropriate. i think for for a lot of things in life. Absolutely great voicemail. All right i think this is our first international voicemail coming up next Which is really cool. We have quite a few falcons fans in the uk but also in all of europe. Like we've got a really big contingent of falcons fans in germany and this fellow is calling a belief from The norwegian area. I won't be half dozen. Or so. European falcons stance. That's the pull another long story of unfortunate events which led to a fifteen year old norwegian kid watching his favorite team blow at twenty eight to three lead at six. Am now school now. It should be noted that before the year. I was not hopeful. The falcons of instilled a great deal of pessimism me over the years. And i have a sizable amount. Riding on the falcons to win under a seven and a half games as such. I wasn't a horrified by week..

"Just feel tired. A right hopes. Why rehiring arthur smith like. Let's be honest here. He's only reason why he was just as well as because we don't have a dare in back. There's no we don't we don't you don't have no type of gerakan back walls quarter of partisan did a thing but he's not their training was almost us. You know what i'm saying so no. I don't want to hear any houston's connects next week. Podcast about all matt ryan and the problem. Nope using the problems but not. He's not lucien anymore. He's not get rid of him. You and train them in washington traded and so team that deserves talking quarterback who obviously the team doesn't should've have. We should have dropped adjustment killed in. I in higher the kansas city offense coordinator perking we would have been able to keep julio jones and and have to rebuild and build the fucking defense and the offensive line. Come on what is what is. This is absolutely pitiful. I'm sick of it sick of it. Worse than the leading super bowl like come on. Oh we honestly. I think that he just made some of the best points. I've really heard put altogether like that about this team. You know and no. I don't think you know it's it's worse than the super bowl. But i do think a little more recent and i and i also think that what falcons fans are having a hard time with right now is so you know. Dan came and they saw a pretty quick turnarounds. I mean they were not as good as first season but in his second season he was able to take them to a super bowl but in his first year. Yes they did. And then they hit that six game skid and then you know. Same thing with mike smith i'm in. They went to the playoffs in his first year in a second year. They finally got back to back winning seasons for the first time since the team was founded might teen sixty and so i think that fans just we have had to sit through such terrible consider while for the past couple of years and i think that we just were hoping like. We don't have to do that every sunday anymore. And then all of a sudden it's like okay here you go except now. The team is actually worse. I see him. What the story acting so strongly I do just want to kind of touch on some of the things that he said about matt ryan and fields and i want to emphasize that he said matt ryan is not the problem. We agree with him on that. But i thought that. I'm i'm curious to know what you think about his take on Why it would be better to. Have you know if they would have gone ahead and drafted fields. they could've potentially kept. Julio you know a lotta things shake out differently. I'm just curious to hear your thoughts on that you. I talk for the draft. I said then that. I could understand any move including drafting justin fields. I wouldn't you know we. We were both. I think in the same camp which was we. We've been happy with drafting justin field. So i think some people have seen what i've said. The hurt will have said in think. I'm against justin fields. Not i would have been ecstatic with drafting him. I guess my point now is like we didn't so it's time to move on this is it's not going to help us at this point to talk about what we should have done. Yeah and i do appreciate what he was saying. You have matt. Ryan is not the answer. I still think matt ryan can be successful. But i i think from the standpoint of is he going to be able to lift up an offense with a terrible offensive line. No that's not the kind of quarterback he has. I think that is a very real reality for this team is that they're only going to be as successful as you offensive line allows them to be so i with all that but i want to say one thing he said arthur smith had a derrick henry and that was why he was successful and then advocated for hiring eric the enemy. I mean to to flip the card eric. The enemy had patrick mahomes so like it helps to have one in the most physically talented incredibly gifted passers in the nfl as offensive coordinator. So i think it goes back to a mutt. Ready to write off Arthur smith after two games. I think there's a lot to like about what he's trying to do. We're not there yet. But gee i'm curious what you think about that Well actually david. I'm been real focused on another part of of what that gentleman sir i like. That's what i was so excited waiting for you to be done. So that i could share this So i he said you know if you're gonna rebuild just if you're going to have to rebuild just rebuild like don't say it's not a rebuild when it's got to be or you're not going to be competitive and so that was the thing that i wanted to ask you about just i mean. I think that it's hard to look at the performance of this team and chills like the lack of depth. The end not think that are rebuild. Might be necessary before this team can be competitive than you know. Maybe they maybe they shake off the early. You know rough performances and look better going forward but they just look like they have a long way to go. That is certainly true. What's interesting is we've seen this a lot. We heard this a lot last week to on with the voicemails. It's i wish they wouldn't have made me believe that this was a retooling or the competitive this year I guess the first thing i'll say to that is there is no nfl team that is ever going to go into the season and essentially tell it spans. Hey guys we're gonna suck this year because our roster sucks and we're not going to be competitive like no team is going to do that And you know it would be refreshingly honest if a team but i have never once seen that happen But no they still have to sell tickets right customer team. That is gonna be tanking guys. Were taking come and watch a seven or eight games at mercedes-benz benz for two hundred fifty bucks a pop. Yeah that's that's gonna sell it now. The other thing is i think what you talk about the rebuil- there are different ways to do it. And i think there's been an assumption. That the falcons in order to rebuild they have to immediately draft a quarterback and my mindset is actually a little bit different. Because we've seen we've seen examples in the nfl when you draft a quarterback and don't surround him with talent. Sam darnold is a great example. I mean he he. He burned out in two years with the jets. David cars an older example with houston ages ago. But then look at an example where you bring a young quarterback young where you've got an established offensive line. You've got a really good running back. You've got receiving weapons and he can come in. And that was matt ryan in two thousand eight and he won rookie d. in large part because they had a lot of pieces waiting for him so for me. I do think the falcons do have to start thinking about the rebuild. But i would rather they start building up the young pieces on in an offensive line getting an elite weapon. Like a call pits. Who in two or three years cockpits pits will be twenty two twenty three years old and he'll be hitting his stride in the nfl all of a sudden you bring in a rookie quarterback who's going to inherit that kind of weapon. And i think that is a great way to rebuild where you draft a guy now. You have him running for his life every sunday. I don't think that's a great way to rebuild. That's my two cents. It's not gonna gives to rebuild. I think we have to talk about how we rebuild the roster like this..

"Coverage of the atlanta falcons on the finish. Podcast our gina. Your thoughts Like i said a couple of minutes ago a really disappointing search of the season I don't even know what to say beyond that lake. All of these negative reactions to the team are totally valid and totally justified. Based on what we've seen so far. So yeah i'm sure that a lot of fans will relate to that whole scenario This this next one is gonna think. Light up falcon spans. Because there is a i will say there is definitely a divide this year. Maybe more pronounced than in the past with a group of falcon spans. Who were ready to see the team draft justin fields as those who are ready to see matt ryan finally have a successful team again and this guy. Well i'll let you figure out what side of the fence season honestly like. This is crazy like we should have drafted just fields. And i don't care what you'd think. They know justin than anything behind his own line. Or whatever you probably right but the way online is blocking no no. I'd rather have fields thirty six year. Old matt ryan before trade matt ryan. Get them the fuck out her because she deserves better on desserts fucking better news bullshit every funky us our. I know i know looking personally. Anything but defense huq's trade. Julio fucking jones away book blue-collar pit on one cow is gonna be a great. Nfl but what are we doing. We're going to rebuild actually rebuild.

"And you really can't forget that the boxer probably the best team in the league steel still. I'm either the reigning super bowl. Chance i would say that they and the chiefs are like one. and well. i mean the chiefs who knows. They lost the ravens this week but So yeah i mean the bucks may be the very best and i think that you just have to have some patients especially after we saw the team. Look a little against the buccaneers. They did some better things and the offensive line. I thought played a little bit better against what was maybe an even more fierce defensive line this time around and i said this in our chat. Now i wanna put it out there into the internet. But i think you have to keep in the context. The bucks not only had extra days of rest because their first game was on the thursday mumbling. Were they playing at home. But this is a team that returned every starter from last year and the coaching staff. So they have zero turnover. They didn't have anybody that had to learn anything new in by contrast the falcons are in the exact opposite boat brand new coaching staff. Multiple new starters on the offense line in the defense. The defense was almost completely overhauled in the secondary minus one player. And that is. That's in the first few games of the season. You would expect a team like the bucks returns. All of its starters that won the super bowl has extra rests. It's playing at home. You would expect them to have a significant edge and they did. Yeah and at least falcon showed some fight but you know to the gentleman who left the message. I just want to say. I love the energy and you know i don't like i don't want to just dismiss your take out a hand. I understand the frustration and Yeah i mean it's been a really disappointing. I two weeks this season really disappointing. Second voicemail. here. We go every sunday. I wake up and put on my stupid little. You're the white done little team when it's all done quietly.

"You can may be deal with somebody who is a work in progress at one of those guards spots if you have a really experienced center white. If alex mack were still holding down the middle that line.

Hope you know game one but you know. It's kind of funny to think that i'm looking at next year's draft. Qb's over roy are writers the site that cover the the draft or probably already getting ready with their travel aches for twenty twenty two. Yeah and i mean part of being an.

How long matt ryan's performance. I mean he didn't have time to do a simple five five-step drop and so now that said the renzo performance was abysmal and ending that i had questions about play and i had questions about execution. I think that there is a lot of blame to go around. But i am also going to realistically acknowledge that matt ryan is making..

"I moved it is lots of balance trying to make sure you're fully evaluating everybody and making sure that you're retaining. The best is for your team and that does mean obviously like preseason impasse getting the guys down. The duct chart were playing time. But i really think you've got gotta have some playing time for starters. Yeah and i'll be surprised if it doesn't change at this point. I think we're gonna see something me all right. I think this one. This is a short voicemail but in much the same way that the first one Intimated thoughts on the game. I think this one intimates thoughts on being a falcon span on dead inside. Well more welcome to it. We are to ben for years from. That's the only reason we're still able to watch this team. If we had anything waft we would do something better with our time. I have to tell you One of the main things. I think we lean on as falcons fan especially those who are engaged in social media like we are is the humor that comes with being a falcons fan. There's so many people that on the day after a game like this that you'll iraq with them and they just find a way in darkness to to illicit humor and it's one in my mind it's one of the best part of being a falcon spam on twitter because there's just so many fans have a great sense of balance a great sense of humor even in the midst of a absolute stinker of a game like that they bring humor and i think that that helps alleviate some of the pain. It really does i. It's definitely a coping mechanism for all of us. Hurley is for years if you're going to make twenty eight to three jokes fine. But they probably won't be as funny as mine and that's really the only problem that i have with them like it really. Having a sense of humor is fundamental if he wants to survive pelicans spam or next one touches on the documentary series from secret. Mesa on the falcons. So this'll be interesting. I think about it. I just recently watched. The atlanta falcons dr in the history of manifested itself. Now we look back on that documentary. That just came out. You look at all parts of you. See how bad the southlands were in the seventies sixties babies so the nineties where they started to pick it up in the late nineties. And then there's it fell back down. It seems like history just repeating the so and after this game we're about to go down long continuing spiral down 'cause after the game like you don't have mojo sad. We look for the falcons as much want to win. And then we get heartbroken once again every sunday. Been like that every sunday since forgiven day. I mean he's not wrong on. Yeah it takes. I think a special type of person to stick it out with this team And i gotta say like if you were on falcon sweater. During the came on sunday the jokes were flying. And that does help me get through it. But it's also a lot of same old falcons you know. How many times has this team just got an utterly embarrassed in the stupidest ways and i felt like sunday's game was really full of those so it was kind of a peak falcons experienced a true falcon if you will and i actually got on twitter. Someone responded to one of my tweets and said hey. I'm i'm a new. A new falcons fan though. I love the podcast and my first thought was you picked a hell of a time to start rooting for the falcons. I mean anybody who joins the party after super bowl. Fifty one i. I don't know what's going on in your hud but you should maybe talk to somebody like i. Miss is a level of masochism. The i do not think healthy. Oh dear god. I have to say these voicemails have been fantastic. You guys have lines appointed all right. Let's get on to the next. One will make the most upset us. Believe off sleeping as one. The we got better defensive team without just live often shabby craig none of that. He saw none of uh. We saw the eagles doctors do anything was i. I'm sitting here my south jersey onlooker more. I talk so much so much. Trust that he would say we're gonna play this. We not tampa bay in that. That won't be oh and to to just last year. nothing. I dunno sixteen. I dunno all linus. Trust are even worse. How do you think the offensive line does well luck. Hope for the best so bad for all of us in your miserable and disappointed after that game lake. It is and we have had feel this way after so many games like i think what. I'm i think that the overall gist. That i'm getting from voicemails. That fans are really tired of the sunlight. It is such an exciting time when you get a new head coach and you know when you're looking toward a new era. I'm in this case nuke new head coach new. Gm we haven't had both of those since two thousand eight and so you know optimism. I mean it's kind of foreign concept falcons fans but that that is normally time when nfl theanswer optimistic and then hearing you know it's not going to be a rebuild and you know all of that. I think that there's reason to thank you know. Maybe they wouldn't go to the super bowl this year. But i mean. Am quantock there and his second year as head coach. And so you know. Maybe next year the following year they could be back in a position contend than i hear it in falcon stands voices on these messages. And it's just really hard after that game to believe that. That's possible. And so i guess too bad i would just say it is just one game and i really do think that you know. Not quite not. Playing starters in the preseason was a factor. I think that one game is not sufficient evidence to prove that. It's definitely a rebuild. The team can't content but they looked really bad. And so you know. I even as i say all about stuff like i completely understand why fans are feeling this way about it. Undoubtedly and i think for fans who've been in this for awhile for like if you look back. When mike smith came in expectations were low and and then they ended up finishing eleven. And five matt ryan got rookie of the year. So that season. And they've they literally matt ryan's i pass in the nfl was touchdown and that game felt like it. Set the tone for the season in even with dan. Quinn in two thousand fifteen. They started that season five and even though the eight they they started with the wind. Boy that that that should have given us some previews of of that Dan quinn era falling apart back but regardless they started with the win and i think that maybe has leaned against arthur smith. I think there almost this assumption that we would start with win especially against an opponent who in many people's minds was was not a strong opponent. Although i think that maybe was discounting the eagles too much because they do have talent on in the trenches especially but so i feel like we shouldn't keep underselling. The eagles Actually said the podcast. I feel like they're going to be a dark horse team to make the playoffs this year..

I think you'll probably agree with the cinnamon one art. Yes yeah that sounds about right. Also my recap of that game. That is that was the perfect. Recap of falcons eagles week. One twenty twenty. Nfl twenty-one nfl season voicemail is the offensive player of the game as someone who has to write those articles every week. I wish we had that ahead of time. I would have put that as the number one option for the offensive player of the week. Yup and i think that that would have gotten a hundred percent of the vote. So the win. Fantastic well kickoff. The are gonna jump into our second one. This is actually not a wet fart in. I think this guy goes into the lack of adjustments says somebody from omaha nebraska Quite honestly i think game came down to adjustments. I do not see arthur. Smith make adjustments during the game. I'm very concerned about his coaching. In the future Tell pits was terribly under utilized. Arthur smith should have done a better job with that I saw the notes to his credit. Arthur smith took a he. He basically blame this game on him. Yeah he did. And i have to say like i appreciate the candor but it's a little bit jarring to hear your new head coach. Say i didn't have the team prepared for this game. And i think that it wasn't just the team. I think the caller is correct. I mean. I think that the eagles stuck me made adjustments at the half and we saw that they were much more dominant against the run. Game where the falcons had really been able to get things going against them in the first half But i did not see. Yeah i really didn't see any adjustment from earth smith. I agree that kyle was under you why. I think that that may be in part. Because they're still working out some chemistry and timing issues between hemin ryan because they didn't play in the pre season. And i think that that's a big part of this too so yeah i totally agree about the adjustments. I you know. Have some level of concern about arthur smith. I'm not going to make a sweeping judgment after one game. I know that it's a big adjustment going from being a coordinator to a head coach. But the lack of adjustments that is concern. Oh definitely yeah. He think he everyone else in that building those they have to do better this week. Not saying they have to win but they absolutely have to do better than what that is on sunday speaking of adjustments or lack of preseason that make underscore addict or us. Call me out on that Mark three takeaways from his game is warning. Arcus smith probably feel dumb his health and not letting. Am stars played on the preview. He gave all the time. We only have two games and he gave all the time to guys who really make detaining..

"Falcons. Alright, Kindness gain? Well, it's an eight yard rush. And so it is 23 to 6. Now. Philadelphia leads the Falcons in Atlanta again. Philadelphia on top 23. 26 again. I don't think we knew what to make of this Eagles team heading into today. Jalen hurts 22 of 29 206 passing yards and two touchdowns. So he's having a pretty nice day. Miles Sanders, the leading Russia for Philadelphia, 11 carries for 79 yards and then Kenneth Game. Well, as I just mentioned has the touchdown the rushing touchdown on the day in Devante Smith. Has a receiving touchdown, as does Dallas Goedert and Devante Smith. First reception of his NFL career is a touchdown. We talked about that earlier and the Philadelphia Eagles looking good, so far 22 to 6 on top of the Falcons, but the Falcons not a lot of juice heading into this one. J. Well, The Falcons are supposed to be a high flying offense again this season when you added Kyle pits, and we haven't seen any of that, but we have seen is the Eagles. Maybe have a top five offensive line in football line that was banged up Holy last year, which was a trickle down effect. There was all types of issues and it started up front. Now they're healthy. They're and this team is playing confident football. The offensive side of things, and Jalen hurts his looking like a guy who can lead a franchise. Yes, Jalen hurts and weeks Weeks, 15 and 16 Last season, he became the first quarterback. To pass for 300 yards and run for 15 consecutive game since Michael Vick did it in weeks, four and five of 2011, and I don't know that Jalen hurts has gotten his due and what he's done so far for Philadelphia. Just because he kind of came in late last season, Things were falling apart in the locker room on the football field. They had injuries all over the place, especially on that offensive line. And he comes in, and he has the Philadelphia Eagles on top yet again, and so a minute to go in the third quarter there the Eagles on top of the Falcons, 22 to 6. A lot of these games now are coming down to the wires. We head into the fourth quarter. We're going to keep you posted on everything throughout the entirety of this Sunday, It's Game day on ESPN Radio Shane Jordan Cornette Washington forces. Another turnover against Justin Herbert will have the latest.

"But i think that's gonna be the logan ryan Little slot little safety bigeye. A physical tackler And and you know a lot of the times to they only see a place whereas all over did beat and you with corners. You have to watch them every play pathway least obviously but You know there's a lot of times they all playing pretty good coverage. There's but i think he's badly just over. Hated lightning rod. There's always gotta be one you know it was big beasley before that And i think in this new role. Because i i just don't see these but again on the outside any shows I think in this new role he's going to be really really good Well let me let me walk that back to us a little bit. I think he's going to be good. I think he's gonna be improved. And i think he'll still get a lotta. Hey you know a lot of hate Just because you know he's still got messed up every once in a while. There's no corn league. I think they get up zero percent. Completion percentage But you know i. I think he's going to be a lot more physical he's going to be able to Take a little bit of pressure off himself. And i think he's going to flourish in a new role with this. Yeah i think so and good kid interviewed him after one of the games. Just really down to earth Got a good shoulders. So i want to see him succeed. I think you. And i talked about him for I think a lot of the fact that he was a second round. Pick that some people had first route. You know potential first round pick. I think if for what he's given us if he were a fourth or fifth round pick you talked about the incredible value that we got him and i. It's unfortunate you player can't choose when they're drafted But right now he fits into that nickel role. That's probably gonna be a good fit for him all right now. Another thing we talked about. I think the and you talked about this. But it doesn't help that. Whenever the falcons in the second round but like they just got a draft. I mean all yes and you know he. He was the round talent. This is a great big. I can't believe he's still sitting in the fountain. Just got him. I don't think the help all nice fall And like yeah improviser. A lot of hype in absolutely that factors into it. And honestly you gotta evaluate these guys not on their draft position or the hype coming out you sit and you have to evaluate them by how they play and how they grow and how they develop and that's what we tried to do and and we try to balance out sort of a hot takes of guys trash. That's out so Let's be realistic folks. A zale offers knocking to light it up. But he's he is. He's got a role in. I think he can play that role fairly well all right behind him now. This is interesting. This is a player. I didn't even think would necessarily make the roster in it still remains to be seen. What the falcons ultimately do with him. But kendall sheffield who is going into his third year you know former fifth round pick. He had a terrible twenty twenty To be blunt they they essentially benched him at one. point the kiva so bad and he's got the capability. He has an athletic Kid he's someone that can make plays but he was just getting roasted on. The regular did not play at all. Preseason in he made the fifty three man roster I'm not entirely sure. Why the falcons. The the fifty three man roster is composed right. Now is very odd. They've got of levin defensive backs which normally most teams peak about ten. You know in It was interesting to see them. Carry a kindle sheffield the to drafted rookies did make it Darren hall and avery williams In my mind darren hall is someone that needs a little bit more seasoning. I think they're carrying him to redshirt him in the same way we mentioned earlier. He's a player. I think we'll probably start off. Inactive on game days every williams though came on pretty strong towards the back end of these preseason games Not even to mention the fact that he was really drafted we are punt returner and as a corner was beginning to show out at the back end of camps. Who how do you feel about these last three guys at the corner position. Yeah this this is where the great starts to tail off for me a little bit death. The death is absolutely concerning and my thing is You know. I understand aaron hall everywhere. Working progress know who really knows about kendall. Sheffield at this point where you know we talk about you. Know if you wanna make the roster you can contribute on special teams tackling is not exactly gonna sheffield forte. He's as a really good actually and he has the ball skills he's not a very physical guy Which is kind of widespread. I thought they were gonna keep chris williamson over here. I'm glad to get on the practice squad But the depth is definitely very concerning. I think they're all i. I gave them the demonte. The calm down to the same school that hybrid safety corner combo and i think he can be a contributor. One day. I don't think he's just immediately leave. Leave the exception. But i think they're going to be a solid contributor one day. I don't think it's right now I'm really trying to not get myself too. Excited over every williams Playing well in the preseason but hey if these guys gotta come into a game just stopped by fire. I think they're gonna. I think they're gonna play well on special teams. I think they'll vote definitely contributed a way there They you know this this. These are two guys that i think have long term potential but stepping in immediately. I you know they might see some problems. Yeah exactly and one hundred percent with you there. i do like the long term potential. I think every williams we of the two is going to be the one active on game days simply because the special teams component but over the long term. They could be you know guys that you go to for depth or maybe even eventually become contributors in nickel-and-dime sets on the regular. But yeah like if they're getting into games this year Consistently that's going to be a problem in kendall sheffield. I'm with you. i thought williamson was gonna push sheffield off the roster..

"And the entire last year You know just just an incredible very instinctive you know and you just don't expect that from a guy out of fresno state a fifth round pick You just don't expect those type of instincts and that type of game since already and now bodies coming along a little bit you know. He's he's kind of growing into that role and it's going to be hard to keep them off the field. I think we could see him. Rotate into the pass. Russia times And you know in nickel packages you'll be extremely valuable to if you got a two tight end set or something. yeah dory dory threats really liked look nice in the preseason you know that thumper See ball get ball had recycled for a loss against the and by things. And i i think it's a strong unit. I will say. I was a little surprised bouncing Did make the practice squad. 'cause i liked a little bit of what i saw him to. You know what. I mean those those those are the guys i mean that no question but that was those guys in the year. Yeah and i'll tell ya. The the the league has shifted. Used to be that you needed the curtis lofton type of linebacker in the middle. You know the guy that you can count on for those second level tackles and that could come downfield and but these days every single team in the nfl except for like dirt cutter on offense uses. They're running backs out of the backfield as receivers and you have to have linebackers that can keep pace with these running backs Offensive coordinators are getting more and more creative in how they use tight ends. How these vacs cer- guys like jones walker lewis cohen. They are the new prototype. And i feel like the falcons have three legitimate linebackers. That are all at minimum just good and coverage and then you talk about jones whose elite and coverage like. That's that is rare. It's hard to find by backers like this. And then you add on as you mentioned not the capabilities of to go in there and forced fumbles. I mean that that he didn't dallas is a crime in like thirty five states now remember. How many fumbled before. Because i refuse to watch that game get. I think it was three. I think it legitimate three in the same game or in the first quarter and he'll he didn't even finish that game. He got injured in that game so it was like in the first half of the game where he forced three fumbles and yet they lost. Anyhow what do you feel about this group What kind of are you get them. I will say the addition of dory at the bridge and the ability to be like that bumper potentially in leading dion. Be more of that will something. That's really enticing to me. I think he really completes this unit. I'm giving him a The a plus. I don't know if i can label any part of the defense today. Plus i can't. I can't label many units in the nfl. And i'm giving them a. That's really the highest rate. I could probably give anybody And i think they're gonna. I think they're gonna turn a lot of heads this year. I think people are going to start really paying attention to them and start putting them up there with you. Know the tampa bay san francisco. You know maybe even like in indianapolis those upper tier linebacker unit. Yeah yeah. I am really bullish on these four guys. Obviously ethridge is sort of as you mentioned. He's i'll be surprised if he's always active on game day. But we'll see we'll play you but jones kind of a walker. I really really love. What the falcons have done here. They're drafting you know. I don't want to give dimitrov too much credit but the drafting none of these guys are first round. Picks jones was taken the second round for you. The six michael walker believe in the fourth or fifth as you mentioned Yeah i'm going with a this. Feels like a really top notch unit again. I just can't get over the fact that teams look at alvin kamara. And they're like hey. This guy is amazing in indiana jones regularly. Shut him down and it just people just dismiss it and it's the my mind it's like come on. I'll never to with christian mccaffrey. I mean we haven't even talked back from this year. Yeah and having having these guys is critical to be able to counter the players like that. So yeah. I'm with you really bullish on this unit and i think it's gonna be fun to watch this year all right. We're going to talk about the back end of this defense. Safeties the corners. You may be surprised but what we feel about these guys But before we do that we're going to take a quick break..

"Definitely move there of. Oh a kind of to hold on. Yeah you're like breaking up. Shen deliver his hottest take and the internet broke little his gun away clear. Yeah you're coming in now okay I actually like this. Great of an incomplete. Because i don't know. I think i right about this ago. We really have no idea what to expect a roster as we've discussed not great A lot of issues. And i think that there are. There is a way that they can make this offense effective. But i don't. I don't know if that's what's in the cards for right now on. It's it's so hard to tell. It's so early. If i was giving grade would it be good but i still have Like i said a little bit of that. Cautious optimism Somewhere deep down decided the these Completely beaten out of me. quite incomplete. sound sounds right and You know. I think it'd be a couple of weeks before we even really have a good grasp on what does offenses at. That's fair. i'm going to go the optimistic route. And i'm going to say this is a b plus unit with the caveat as long as stay healthy because i think the depth is problematic. We we already. We went through the position groups and like the only position where we feel. Good about the depth where there's only three players to begin with the tight end Which is numerically. There's pretty good odds it's gonna work out. But yeah i feel like a b. plus unit and i feel like for what arthur smith can do is play caller. They could do a lot of good things so long. As the starter stay mostly healthy for the entirety of the season. And that's the question mark. And honestly i think when we talk about roster construction fans probably just really having a hard time with the falcons depth being this bad and look. There was no circumstance under which terry no was going to come in and build out quality depth in one season. It just wasn't going to happen and especially with the salary cap issues that he inherited there was no way he was going to flesh out every single position from a depth standpoint and that includes on the offense like with what. We're seeing here where there's a lot of question marks. They've got some good top line. Starters guys like calvin ridley matt ryan You know they give me a lot confidence that this team can do something on offense this year but for those who are sort of you know trashing this team. The they're going to take a couple years to rebuild the debt on this roster in it's gonna be through smart signings getting salary cap under control and some good draft picks and honestly. There's no other way to do it. And it's gonna take time so those complain about the depth roster this this frankly is part of the mess that thomas to left this team with and i'm glad he's gone so not gina. Any final thoughts for rapid this podcast. I just hope that this is not a miserable season. Macos where i am right now like. We all deserve a little bit of joy. In our lives from the falcons we have been through it over the past year and a half with everything going on in the world and then obviously the last. Several years with the falcons. We deserve a good on field product this year so members crossed that. That's what we get agreed. matt funds. Lots my thoughts are. We are most likely not seeing that man. How can i follow that up all right. So the men. No matt tiller listeners where they can find your way have gone on. You can always find my articles over it. The falcon i think i am Why is this the one question. I'm not prepare for me on. Twitter at buckle. Hollick matt's usually with some stupid tweets usually like that's your whole thing. Man is the stupid tweets. I had a joke yesterday. That i had i had to delete. I forgot how a nuance catchy convenient. But but you know it's kind of funny because we're still paying.

"Jin. How do you feel about a. I think a really well rounded group. I think that they cover all the basil's that they need from this tight ends group I love it You brought up the patriots ten years ago. Think this duo has the potential can say they're one hundred percent reach this but i think they have that same kind of potential to be that one two punch at tight end that could just absolutely frustrated defensive coordinator all year long and Yeah it's for me. It's a plus in that high range but really really excited about this group. Okay we're gonna talk about wide receivers. We're gonna talk about offensive line because what's interesting here is feel like there's some really good things to say and in some really not so great things to say but before we do that. We're going to take a quick break. We'll be right back and we're back on alcoholic. Podcast is david walker. i'm joined by gina. Kelly matt chambers. We're talking about the falcons offense fifty three man roster our grades for this unit overall going into the season. We've talked about quarterback running back tight end. Let's talk about the wide receivers gina our top two guys Who jones has gone. I don't want to talk about the anymore. That is a a topic. Been beating the death. We still have the amazing. Calvin ridley and russel gage as our two starters and i do want to point out. This is something. I think that holds some weight. The falcons depth chart shows that they will be starting season in a twelve formation. So one running back to tight ends as their starters Dirk cutter last year. Had three wide receivers as the starting offense so this is a bit of a change. I think this is indicative of what we're going to see from arthur smith. He was no coach. Ran the twelve formation more than he did last year in the. Nfl looks like he's going to bring that to atlanta which we all suspect he would. But right now to starters calvin bradley russell gauge how they feel about these two guys. I feel great about these. two guys. you know i don't want to belabor the julio thing either but there's just no real replacing and i emphasise caliber but i still don't feel terrible about these starters Allama days achille's. He is a guy who can make some plays You know kirsten blade has certainly potential to be decent coming off the bench. I love rank darby so far the as far as starters. I feel pretty good about them. Met tell ridley russell gauge are you. You mentioned you. You actually mentioned. Julio jones earlier. And i think the this really becomes more of a conversation the depth but now that gauges sort of stepping into that wide receiver to roll. How do you feel about those two guys in what they are going to offer the team this year. Well i did feel a lot better about the wide receivers last year the ornaments julio thing so i still feel i still pretty good i. I know that our own La sorry ellen sturt. It's turk start. We can edit. This sturt did a heated. A film review that i just posted on friday on kind of looking at his development because he did start off as kind of a gadget player. Like i think he was. I think he was the six round. Pick like he He played like a couple of positions or something in atlanta stuck humane wide receiver. And and he i. I've been quite with him as a player of really kind of piggybacking off posters article. He's developed really really well and my my only question there is. If he can stay healthy he has all these like crazy acrobatic catches where you're like i can't believe he cut that and then usually landing like little on his back buddy or something and the miss miss two games or something like that hoe medicinal conditioning. Or something we'll we'll help that we probably don't need to talk about calvin really he's he's legit definitely the best reverend In the in the nfl green red zone target like you great player. You can jump very high or anything. But outside of that. I think he's got like seventy years old nine years old. It's amazing what he can what he can do as geriatric wide receiver. I think that's fair. Like i mean my thirties. My back for so i can't i can't imagine his needs like he probably sees the ball and he's like i'm not it's not worth it to jump for that and you know a fair or not but i mean you really obviously like that is a number one wide receiver. I think gauge gave fifth. Well is knowing your standard wide receiver to like he. He can be pretty good. Maybe we're going to be on seventeen games but You know. I think he could probably flirt with close to a thousand yards receiving if he stays healthy. Yeah and that's a the seventeen game. Point is actually really important because it does sort of make you look at the depth in wonder. Okay if over a longer season Can you keep both these guys helping healthy four seventeen games and if not who steps up in their place and jin mention the names of as a kiss who i think is actually like. He's he's looked good. The past you know the past year he looks like a player then great. Some separation runs good routes christian blake. I mean like if i could say some good things. If you're forced me to tasha sharp like this is where. I think the the depth really falls off a bit. I didn't even realize shirt made the roster. Wow surprised to me too. When i was for our got. Okay okay okay. Good ties as start. Frank darby i. i'll be honest. I think with frank darby. I think the team just didn't wanna move on from a player that they drafted. I think they're stashing him on the fifty three man roster. I will be surprised if he's even active on game days because he he was very limited in what he could do in the pre season and appears to have very little special teams values. So that's going to be a problem as well. So yeah after a really engaged like first of all rid league. I think he showed in the joint practices in miami that he is going to be an absolute stud this year like. He's he deserves to be drafted in the top five in the league. He's going to be out. He's always been good in the red zone And it like last year a thirteen fourteen hundred yards close to that as you know..

"Better fit for him overall then whatever the hell that was cut around here the past few years wait for everybody tweet us that they should have just rapid justin field. Because i. that's that's my other prediction around ryan that we will get a lot of those tweets early inevitable inevitable or god forbid. I don't know if we'll see people saying we should have drafted mack jones but that that could be an issue like if that one happens. I'm going to have. I'm going to have a little bit of conniption that bit on the internet before that's going to happen happen. Feels like two big passes in a row. You're you're going to see that on twitter and to be fair Someone did tweet me literally. Today's saying that. Josh rosen is better quarterback so we're already need surprisingly was not but we're already scraping bottom of the barrel and we haven't even got do the regular season yet. Though this are are the people who follow us listen to us. Read our stuff. They never failed to disappoint. In that regard backup quarterbacks the two headed weird is hell monster of philippi. Franks in josh rosen. Gino i We all know if matt ryan goes down like it's the problems are ahead. But where do you stand on her back up quarterback situation where i stay on the is doing everything in my power to make sure to well matt ryan to stay healthy because this is a complete disaster. I'm really glad that. The falcons hit one hundred percent vaccination rate because i know that one of the concerns for teams ram leagues. What if you're serving quarterback isn't vaccinated hall kirk cousins when looking at you guys You've got to make sure that you having viable backups. Falcons do not have that on the roster of philippi. franks. I think has a lot of potential. I love the what he can do with his legs but his passing leads lots desired. And and the nfl. That's kind of a big deal. josh rosen. I actually probably a little bit more bullish than than mental of people are. I think that he's you know. Had some pretty raw deals and his initial the initial part of his career. I don't think he's really had a chance to six six someplace with a coaching staff. That's invested in helping him develop Hopefully he's landed in a place where that will be the case and you can look at the success. That arthur smith had with ryan. Nfl and at least have some hope for rosen to improve to be a viable backup But all in all. And yeah the other thing. I do want to add us that felipe. Franks and josh rosen are both better options than aj. Mccarron i've wished him leviathan has recovery. I hope that gets well. I hope that he never takes another snap. Preseason or otherwise for the atlanta fault but yes so this is. It's just kind of a hot mess. I guess what. I'm saying situation leaves some things to be desired. Yeah i can already feel. Were that greatest heading matt. Are you feeling wonderful about the quarterbacks. Well david. I'll i'll tell you the truth. If you told me a year ago i would be discussing. Aj mccarron in josh rosen. I would have just quit the site in softball team decision. Oh yeah this. I i really can't i i can't see any. I can't see any way where i can find like the positive aspects of this Aj mccarron bad. So maybe we've dodged that bullet good luck to him with You know whoa his future. Whatever but if philippi franks he can't pass the ball like we who we saw it. He's he's not ready yet. The practice squad guy Right now that. That would be trouble. And as much as i want to say like josh. Rosen didn't look terrible in preseason. we've seen a lot of josh rosen in the nfl. The bad it's always been bad and it's not like it's not like a little bad where you're like navy. You can kind of work through some things. This is not like rained a hill. A rehabilitation project. Josh rosen is had quarterback like they're like i want to get dragged in and be like. Oh well you know what maybe order. Smith can kind of fix them i. It's i i just can't this. This is a terrible terrible situation and we have to hope. The rain stays healthy or room. Or i don't know we you know we can be drought drafting in the top three or something if if yes that's i i guess that's positive there's been on it bill. I think that the backup plan might have matt ryan doesn't stay healthy is to just hope for the heat death of the universe to come soon. We don't have to be exposed to whatever terrible. Football takes place after that. That's sort of what i'm hoping for anyways. But that's neither here nor there matt your grade. Great these backup quarterbacks. Oh this is a hard f- hard hard l. There's no i i can't. I can't believe anything positive out of this. But maybe we'll be talking about some of these other top quarterbacks in the draft if matt ryan goes down so we we do have that look forward to f for fair gina. Great go i'm gonna go with f. Also confident about these guys. I don't think either one is really prepared to take over. If matt ryan what happened to get hurt which i hope to. Everything does not happen so yeah harder for me to what's great is. I've heard from people over the years that were way to the alchoholic giving you the like. I don't even if the problem anymore. I is an issue anymore Been a problem since two thousand sixteen. Because i feel like much match broken. We could probably put a very specific date. Didn't even time on that more than likely a without a doubt. All right so matt ryan be ish in the grade. Backups incredibly problematic With an f. Again i think arthur smith has said. He feels good about the quarterbacks but they could still make a move at a position It would not surprise me if both of these guys are not on the fifty three man roster at some point during season. So we'll see how this one plays out all right running back. I wanna move to this position next. This one just saw a recent shakeup Quadrille listen has been shipped off at this point. I haven't seen that. He's been signed and any other team. The falcons not put him on their practice squad. I don't know that it means there permanently dealt with him. 'cause you know brian hill comes to mind. Someone who sort of bounced back after a period of time but right now on the falcons are moving forward with mike davis quarter. O- patterson keith smith at fullback and their new signing running back wayne goldman so no running backs on this roster were here in twenty twenty a complete turnover the position which is really interesting. You don't see that usually year to year not not to this extent So gina just. Because i feel like this is going to be a position where it's going to be sort of by committee Gimme your general. Feel for the entire group and you know you can talk to the specifics of each player. In how you feel. But the the group in general as it stands. I don't hate it. I absolutely love the. Mike davis signing. I think that has just been an excellent addition of the team. I love his energy I played them a few times last year..

Niners wide receiver Jerry Rice catches two touchdown passes and runs for another score in the Niners 44 to 14 route of the race. Years. He surpasses Jim Brown as the NFL's career touchdown leader with 127 label Today in 2000 and five Florida's Jeremy Hermida becomes the first player and more than a century and the second to hit a grand slam in his first major league get that connecting in the seventh inning of ST Louis Cardinals Al Reyes and this week in 2013 Peyton Manning
Sports Betting in the U.S. South
"Very curious. Sports books in the south is nc double a. Betting better than nfl betting down there in terms of revenue or is just. Everything is so rich for the sports books while it's a good question at and i think it's one that we probably don't have much to add on yet because As far as i can think of tennessee was the first the first state in the south In in the old south i guess to legalize an put operational online sports betting and that was just in november of last year. The college season was already kind of winding down at that point. And so we probably don't have a ton of data on that yet out. Mississippi has had sports books for a couple of years but that is impersonal nature or mobile on premises. So it's not statewide mobile for that. Being said i think is a lot of logic to what you're saying I can just tell you from personal experience. Living georgia that People around here don't care that much about professional sports. I always say that. I think the atlanta united of the most popular professional sports team in atlanta ever since They've come into existence about three years ago You see a lot of people wearing atlanta united ear all around the city in metro area but The braves and the a falcons hawks are of only marginally popular sports teams here compared to people's fanaticism about university of georgia and clemson and alabama for those who went somewhere like that or south carolina florida. It just seems like their flags everywhere in my neighborhood which is pretty suburban low key place on any given saturday. See cars driving around with flags for any of those schools and others. And so i have to believe that betting would be more intense on college football here compared to nfl. At least You know in proportion compared to what it would be up in the north

Julio Jones to the Patriots: Smoke or Fire?
"About Julio Greg. Chris Simms comes out yesterday and listening cross. Sims has a checkered past when it comes to breaking news. But Simms comes out and says, Julio wants Tennessee, or New England. We've heard rumors about Julio. Wants a play with Cam. What are you hearing about Julio Jones? Well, the first thing as far as potential trade or where the Patriots are, what I've heard too. This point is that they are still sort of kicking the tires on it. I don't think they pursued it in any way. Really with the Falcons they might have had a conversation or two but really, I don't think it's gone very far. I think I might have heard what the initial asking price was, which was, you know, maybe a first-round pick, maybe a second round pick. I think that that too rich for the Patriots blood, plus, they probably want something done about Julio's money. Like the Americans paying half of the first year or something like that. So I don't think And when people also have to remember is that I think June 2nd is the is the is the date this year. We're basically the Falcons have to wait till after June 1st to trade or release Julio Jones because of the way the cap rules are that they get credit. Once it gets to June 2nd, then you could put half on Thursday or half on the following year. So that makes digesting some of those really large contracts. A lot more palatable for teens and the Falcons are just so screwed with their cap. They have to do that. So we are now what day is today, it's the 26th, so there's still time and deadlines spur action. I think right now a bunch of teams including the Patriots or just sort of looking at this and I'm kicking the tires and seeing what kind of deal can be there. So I don't think anything is imminent even though this is all people can talk about and oh the Patriots are the betting odds. Favorite to to DeLand Julio Jones
"falcons" Discussed on The PewterCast : A Tampa Bay Bucs Fan Podcast, Buccaneers
"They normally wouldn't if this was a regular season game or you know had some sort of playoff implications you know. They had they they had some fumbles bounce right back to them You know so. Like i said at the beginning you know there at the beginning of the fourth quarter conic man like we feel like we should be more control this game. But it was. More of like the falcons. Like scratching and clawing just to stay within ten points of the buccaneers. And you know just like just matter time. The pipe bursts man. Just just just just. Just wait this dissuade and finally did so yeah. This was a game that might actually show the difference between because there's a part of me that feels like you're going to say didn't give a crap about that. I found myself carrying and being more concerned about things that the game really didn't have anything to do with then the game itself like that's how comfortable i was throughout the course of this game. I was more concerned about mike evans record. I was more concerned about what. We're gonna do without mike evans in the know about the injury to mike evans. And what's gonna happen. I was more concerned about roadshow. Getting his thousand yards on the season. Then i was about what was actually happening in the game at some points. Because that's how like comfortable. I was in the in this game Real quick for that craig. Thank you so much craig. Craig has been a long longtime listener of the show. A longtime friend. Every time we say as well to that as a nod to him pregnant. Vegas and craig i tell you. It has perforated into every single other podcasts.

"falcons" Discussed on The Falcoholic
"I am DWI. And as always I'm joined by my co host the June Pedder dogs first of her name that didn't tar Gary in the falcons toward through the quick draw McGraw Facebook messenger. The trash talker supreme the one and only touchdown balls. She will not be bossed, gene, online Thomas. You know? Are you doing I'm doing great, David? Thank you for asking. How are you? I am good. It's a new year. I'm excited. We've got all sorts of changes in the air all types of changes across the board. And that's what we're going to talk about. So it's gonna be fun. At is. Let's go. Joining us is the one the only the the man who started it all for better or worse. You can blame him depending on what you think of the site. And what we do is Dave show the alcohol can sell Dave. How you doing man good? But who imme- for creating the best source of falcons news and analysis from the internet. That's a fair question. Well, I I think they're a lot of people who have hot takes out there these days. So I'm sure we can find a few of them that have have a beef with you. I mean, if you're Mike malarkey, you're probably not happy with our coverage right now. So. Speaking of we're going to spend today's podcast talking about all of the changes that have come down. Gosh, it feels like everything hit at once. This news did not get spread out at all. So obviously the falcons finishing up a disappointing seventy nine season in which injuries really set them behind early in the season. But if we're being honest, it was a five game skid after they were formed four that really sort of put them into a negative spot with fans with front office and with head coach, Dan Quinn, and ultimately that resulted in the firing of not one not two but three coordinators on the team offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian, gone defensive coordinator, Mark lawn. Annual gone special teams, coordinator key, Keith Armstrong. I guess he wasn't good enough. An asshole to stay round either. Because he is gone. And I know, yeah, we're we're hearkening back. That's was that low was at a low shot. I think it's fair advocate approve. So genome to start with you first when you saw the news because you know, differ little little behind the scenes. For our listeners, we often try to be ahead of the curve and prepare for things that we think may happen with the team in with players with coaches. So we were somewhat prepared for this. But were you surprised that all three guys got the axe? And in all happened at once I was surprised than like, you were saying we were prepared, and I basically boss everybody around until we had highlights for all three hundred Nader's..
"falcons" Discussed on The Falcoholic
"Nell swear up in San Francisco to everyone McKinnon guts, I know they gave McKinnon a contract, but you know, familiarity with Cal Shanahan in McKinnon little injury there. You know, I think he'll go somewhere in definitely be good. I think the falcons will miss him less than they miss. Like you were mentioning clayborn. I think left the bigger hole in the falcons expected where Coleman leaving. I think the falcons will be fine. I don't see that. As a big issue. Getting Freeman back as long as healthy. Yeah. I think that's the best way to see. He's he he will have a good career elsewhere. If he is used properly, I think if you want him to be a guy that just runs between the tackles every single game. You're not using improperly. You know, getting him out in space getting him involved in the passing game. Like he has certain things about him. That are really really really good. But he also has limitations. I think if you don't try to coach around those limitations, you're not gonna get the best player out of him. But we'll see where does obviously team has some decisions to make some other guys. And we may have seen some final games without can uniforms. But I think we'll have some returns like, Bruce. And I think he'll be back at think that they'll be back. Yeah. He does. He really well down the stretch in house one exact guys in in the league. And you're probably going to get him. We talked about this last week where he he's been productive even with his age. He's been productive. You could argue he's been maybe the silent darkhorse MPP on the defensive line. Just because you know, I'm a big Jack. Offered fan. So he's already wanted in. My is obviously, but grew servants, you know, he he didn't really need a learning curve when he stepped in. 'cause he hasn't been with the falcons all season the raiders cut him. And then he ended up with the falcons, and he took I I can't remember who it was he passed on. I think it was the patriots. And I don't know I wanna say like the eagles, but that's probably wrong. But he took he he went to Atlanta because he he's he took the hometown discount pretty much. He wanted to go home. And he finally is in he's used to Dan Quinn. I don't imagine. He's gonna want, you know, buco bucks to remain falcon, I think they'd get a pretty friendly deal with them. So I would be he would be the free agent where I'd be. I mean, taking Grady Jared out of the question. I would be shocked if Irvine's not back with the team. Yeah. I think that's the most likely spot for him to land. I mean, he succeeded here. He's back. I don't think he's gonna wanna. Try to find a whole nother team. And I think the team will give him a fair deal. I think there's plenty of money to bring preserving that guy. I'm not really I don't think he'll get more than five million on the open market. And I imagined the Brooks read is going to be a cap casualty. That's one early prediction making who they'll try to take some of Reed's money and give it to urban to make sure these back. So I imagine that's where that's going to go. But we'll have much more later in the season about what they'll do with these offseason moves, but you know, one last thought I'll have about the Tampa Bay game. So we get into the coaching things that have been made at I think that it showed the steam still believes in the culture in still believes in the brotherhood mentality. The Quintas put in place because if I'm being very blunt here this team had nothing to play for them to come out and have such a comeback. Like, this means that they trust our coach. And I think this team has been very open vocal about their belief in Dan Quinn that they realized amp quince belief in them. I think sometimes I get Quint peg it's. Trouble when he puts way too much faith in a guy that doesn't need to be out there. And I think that's something Quinn is gonna learn more into his career as a head coaches at. That's not always the best way to do it. But you know, I really I believe in Dan Clinton. Always will. I think he's a wonderful head coach. I think he has limitations like any head coach does than I imagined that you know there..
