"Of USA Today's touchdown wire and author of the genius of Desperation schematic innovations that made the modern NFL. Doug Farrar Doug. How're you today? Good man? How are you good? Appreciate you being here. obviously the the big news in the NFL this week will we'll start with the NFL in general is is Cam Newton Vinik finding a home. Up in up in New England. What do you think of campus fit with the Patriots? You know it's interesting. You know you're a cook. You know what your heart. Perkins's and the Patriots to run it for twenty years and different iterations of changes, but it's you know there's a similar verbiage playbook. dissimilated from team to team. That's been checks primary thing for a long time, and it's I. Find It highly interesting and I wrote this. Because at twenty seventeen game where Cam just lit the Patriots Up Belichick, it said you know in that weekly up to the game. That Cam Newton is public enemy number one among mobile quarterbacks, and I kinda referred back that I thought well. You know you look. Carolina's concepts Beck and Cam was healthy, and in the first half of the twentieth eighteen season was healthy. Our use the top eight quarterback statistically. in the NFL that got hurt and they got hurt again. And so now the narrative is he's been washed up for five years. Which is true but. With you know three to four different. Coordinators Twenty twelve has been running. You Know He. You know three digit vert with North but they've had erhardt perkins concepts in their playbook since CAM second year in the League, so you know. When an checks referring to a specific type of play, the name of the plane may be different, but your second backside read the option route. He runs on Millfield closed. Middle of Logan might be the same thing right Ciller concept, so he's not coming from west coast. To erhardt Perkins and Correspondingly Josh mcdaniels doesn't have to. Flip the script and reinvent the wheel I. Don't know how closely aligned the overall concepts are but I think one of the reasons. This was really an amenable fit for ballot and mcdaniels. Is that cameras run some of these concepts before and how it is concepts, you can have the same passing game concept you know. BOOT flood is through flood whether your west, coast, digit or whatever? anything from traditional. West Coast spread. BOOT flood is boot flood, but if you're if the terminology is the same. It helps a lot I the destroy. Tell as I was talking to Russell Wilson his rookie year in. West Coast passing game capacity of North Carolina state in your into power Wisconsin and when he got to Seattle Seattle is a west coast passage to power, asked him about that like halfway through season, and he laughed and said yet even the terminology sustain its like I, went from college. Nfl I'm reading the same playbook so as far as scheme. I mean as far as health we don't know. We can assume. whatever one sat around Canada's use fine, and of course they're going to say that. If, he's fine. I the other thing I think you know bell? Check is the. Probably the foremost historian in the history of the NFL. his Jenny Rentis of s I did a thing on his library. Two three years ago got to see all the books in it. It's just insane. So, he's watched. You know. He was a defensive coordinator Randall Cunningham. was that in the NFL and fire not liking but eagles. So he's seen Randall Cunningham. He seemed Michael Vick seeing you know all the new wave of quarterbacks now. He is now in NFL. Were Devia way four, the five most of quarterbacks NFL black all. We're mobile. It's a different era. It's completely different time to coach and develop and benefit from the skills of a quarterback. You have to think that. After twenty years of a relatively stationary guy who granted Brady's product best in the pocket quarterback I've ever seen, but he's not going to run for thirty yards at least a lot so in Belgium mind. He has to be thinking. You know this is you know? Maybe, he's got years left Max. I don't know I. Don't know how much how much learning wants to coach, but you have to think he is fascinated by the idea of having a six foot, five two hundred sixty pound guy. His new quarterback is built like Gronk. And can run and can throw and have some mechanical uses is lower bodies. What we've been kind of weird inconsistent, but. You know I am. It's one of the reasons like come on everyone. We're maths. We Can Watch Cam Newton. Develop in the Patriots off s at once Sita's I think it's I think it's a more. Interesting and more hospitable fit than people might imagine the while they and you don't because you don't the perfect fit for the Patriots offense running west coast is whole, NFL. Different versions of. Why would he be if it? Can schematically as a better fit than pretty much. Any other quarterbacks gotten so I'm really interested UCLA goes. Yeah, we'll, it will definitely be interesting and I mean. We walked into a situation where. The Patriots once again, have the best quarterback by far. In Division th. There's everybody else has a young guy who who maybe it will be very good at some point but you know now the. They're back really in the driver's seat with that and. It bill checks never really out of it but back in the driver's seat with controlling position there. yeah, I'm definitely interesting I've heard some people talk about Cam and like Oh will. Just, his personality and The. Way He dresses and given football's two kids like which which? Definitely positive given football's to give stuff. In my particular Boston radio stations shall not be named yet. No Cam he's A. He's an unconventional guide. He is not A. Himself and for for reasons we can all infer Some people have a problem with that the other thing I'll say by the way the Patriots have one of the weakest receiver groups in the League in people well came what we will do that. Have you seen so the receiver groups? He's had to deal with. The F. Gettleman kicked you Smith out the door..

'Saturday Night Live': Why is Leslie Jones Leaving the Show?
"Jones is leaving saturday night life <hes>. She's been there for a little while. It's been therefore many <hes> there's no specifics yet about why but they just say that she has opted to depart. The series won't instead focus on her upcoming feature film projects and her netflix comedy special. I didn't realize she had a knife was comedy special coming up <hes> she's been on s._n._l. Since two two thousand fourteen okay so it's been a little while but opted to depart she's department is that what are you reading this hollywood reporter dot com so you know what's real right. I know i wasn't saying was fake news but i'm thinking of the language that's used it. Just spin is not sell celebrate story as it should be like usually folks leave them. We think about them. Moving on like oh snap they graduated from saturday night live and about to do some shit unless there was scandal tied to it like six year left or whatever there was some scandals like what why why isn't the p._r. Of this being framed as some type of celebratory. She's graduating from from that shit. I think she was probably given a contract or lagasse. You probably don't wanna signing in and it's like but that happens. Every day is positive because i because i think that maybe she might not have the right p._r. Team behind her to get in front of put it out because of s. and l.'s team put it out then. They're putting it out like oh. She's no longer going to be with us. Whatever whatever whatever and then whoever at the hollywood reporter is kind of figuring out like well. What does she have to do. You know what i mean like if it depends on who's controlling that story if i mean what happens with what have i everything you're saying understand totally makes sense. I have to the say it out loud because i feel like this is. This is what happens to black women. This is what happens to black people get further. This is what happens to black women. She had an amazing run on saturday night live. Why isn't the spin whoever is around webb isn't shot. Why and here's the let's pretend right and let's let's run with your theory that <hes> they want her to sign a contract. You don't want to sign whatever so now s._n._l. Perhaps is controlling the story right. We run with that what does s._n._l. Gain as the white powerhouse that it is is from spinning the story in a way that's not celebratory in a way that's not we loved having leslie jones with us because we love having black women and women of color on our team. We wish the best like well also as that so i i haven't i haven't looking. I haven't seen any like something official from s._n._l. Zero things that twitter and this is just all yeah. I put that shit and all this but the thing is like a comedian yet. I'm committing person so like. I have like a a a a a very weird perspective on it because i'm like i can z. s._n._l. Doing that but it's also like that p._r. Team has to be <hes>. I guess i don't wanna say like woke enough but like aware enough to to be like no. This is a celebratory thing because if s._n._l. They might take her not resigning as a slight and if they take it as a slight like what you're not gonna sign. What does it get. You know what we do here. That's supposed to be on t. o. Now you don't wanna be on the team okay. We're going to let the press known at you ain't gonna be on and we're not gonna make it a celebratory thing just because we will assaulting that could be what it is that literally can be just what it is and it's like it's unfortunate. If that is the case it could also be like leslie could've got right off the phone one of her friends and one of her friends another one her friend's taught to another one of her friends and then it got to hollywood reporter and s._n._l. And leslie don't want to come out like that. You know what i mean. It's it's a but i think if the only way i feel that way it should have been done correctly and it's also time is like whatever but if leslie knew that she wasn't going to come back to the was hard decision it up before the and i'm reading this from deadline now <hes> it was jones decision decision according to sources it was jones decision to depart before the n._f._l. Contract the standard s._n._l. Kasa she'll leaving seven years. The actors options are picked up. Every year and performance can also ask to be released early so that's that's another part of it too because remember when i don't know if you guys remember when like kristen wig left and it was just fireworks this this is her last show they brought tina backboard everybody back and it was a thing and we haven't really seen that and even for the other cast members when when when jay farrar left it wasn't the only piece when share leftovers name a white person who is like what like well <hes> jason davidson away but i i wouldn't even say really famous by that but also it was like even though he was like he wasn't like the the star he was part of the starting team team but he wasn't like the star and that starting team where leslie is a you know who is. She's a starter so it's like it's like if if if you have a team and you have like one of your biggest franchise players leaving utah. I think you should want to spin it because you're kind of like hey. This says we got her from like. You didn't even know who she was. You know and look at her stock and we can't wait because now we're actually looking to fill this void of of we need. We need a dope strong. Black woman like well to do again. I'll say these are not from s._n._l. Themselves or lessee's official sources deadline headline stuff but somebody found out that info and now it's everywhere lawyers get like that can get out any way but like in a sense of like the optics optics of it. I do look at things like that because it's like i have friends who work at us now and it's like oh. This is interesting might be some text later kind of don't care that much but as a comedian in the industry. You look at things like that just like man if that was me how i wanted to be played out. I would want it to be a thing where i'm ahead of. It and i'm talking about it and i'm. I'm big up the old house as i go into my own thing but i also think as an artist up the old yes they'll. Hey say gaza dope you guys. Were dope native language. Yeah you know what i mean. I'm on my way right but it's it's a as an artist. I can imagine that leslie might wanna do some other shit. She can't tour stand up wise like she's a standup. You know what i mean. She never wasn't s._n._l. Type of thing. She's a stand a person so for those five years. She had to be in new york to learn these things that are right these things she this is probably not the life she wants and especially when you see someone like kate mckinnon who actually renewed her contract renewed a contract. It's funny that you talk about framing because every single article when it gets to the point like it says says some other shit in the lead and then it says she opted not to renew and then it says comma semicolon wherever the fuck kate mckinnon renewed her contract and i'm like okay that's that's ask my regardless to what really happened the framing of it. It's problematic me. You know as

"Dominic Foxworth talking about the Rams offense in the first half of the sugar and talk about the patriots and focus on things from their side of the field today in second half of the show. I have moved to different hotel. Joining me from the media center in Atlanta, Georgia say freaking contribute to the show. This year old pal football ciders, Mr. dunk, Farrar, Doug. How are you? Good. It's always nice to have the two thousand six f o draft last back together again. That makes me feel very old. Right. So they're very scary. But yeah, no, it is really cool. I mean, obviously, you know, it has been a while certainly got a couple of things that are interesting this year, you wrote a book about the NFL early this year as well, which will get to again in the plugs. But I'm really fascinated by the matchup. We have from the patriots side of the ball. Let's start with the patriots on defense in terms of how they're going to cover the Rams because you'd think about of course, the famous game plan going back to two thousand one even before we write outsiders, the two thousand one to two I guess, technically. But the two thousand one season Super Bowl game plan against the Rams, which you know, has been feted shortly as but it Marshall Faulk over and over and over again and that will disrupt the Rams offense. I'm gonna ask me questions. I was number one. Do you think that is a fair presentation of of the patriots game plan in that game in two thousand one and number two. Do you think the patriots are inclined to follow that game plan against the Rams again? In here. Eighteen years later given that you'd figure they're going to have Todd Gurley or perhaps he'd Anderson as the focal point of that offense. Well, and of course, as far back as Bella Chet goes through so many different game plans, and so many different adjustments. Because of course, he doesn't do the same thing. We kept queuing. And it's you know, it's amazing the NFL, but he's Wyan is is the guy who all my God he actually game plants river opponent, which says more about the other guys that doesn't. To a very large degree there few things. I think to watch for I talked to Kurt Warner and Willie mcginest earlier this morning Warren brought up the point in week ten the Rams and patriots played in the two thousand one season close loss for the patriots won picked off twice. But the Rams wanted and Warner brought up the point. And I've watched the game and it does come up. And then in that first game the patriots tried to run track with the greatest show on earth brunch. Seventy levintv looks and when I was talking to begin if you said we knew at that point we could not run with the wind. So the idea was then to knock them off at the line of scrimmage the famous blows I game plan. And at this point that storyline goes about saying, well, if you if you wanna take the all twenty two of that Super Bowl and the all twenty two of the patriots chief if championship game. I think you feel a lot of very similar concepts against chief hilly atriums were maniacal about really really tight not just press and not just man, but hyper aggressive pressman, there, Stefan Gilmore was beating Sammy Watkins up over.

"But they also they've given up some big play as well. And they play a lot of man coverage bump and run man coverage. You you beat them deep early and get them to back off. I think there are a lot. Let's effective. So I think with the McVeigh going into this game. I think they have to plan some shots. I'm gonna make sense. The saints are one of the worst teams in the league on deep passes in the eagles. We Nick foles not really his game. But they had a couple of shots early on that were successful before the saints. You know, changed her defense. And as Doug mentioned in the first half of the show went with more man coverage. Put Marshon Lattimore on all Sean Jeffrey than kind of slow things down. Are you re police what you saw from Gerry Goffin this game. I mean, obviously they had that late keeper to steal things up. But overall what's impressive performance against the Cowboys? I can't you to impress. I thought he missed there with a few passes. He just straight up miss, but he executes offense. Well, and he did hit some nice cross and patterns, but he left them opportunities in the field as well. So I if I were to give them a letter grade, I'd probably say be better than average. But he he wasn't lights out or anything against against Cowboys pictures gonna have to play a lot better against the saints. Do you think they can win with a b against the saints or he has to have an performance for them to win? Depends on a running game because I didn't expect I didn't expect that sorta running game against the Cowboys. They dominated on the ground against the saints be form. It's from golf would probably just be fine. Yeah. I think if they get two hundred seventy three yards on the ground against the saints and lose it's going to be a really fascinating game. I don't know what's going to happen to make that happen. But I will be happy to watch out if that's how it goes down. All right. Ted.

Now the way different guests via duck Farrar from USA today. Earlier on the show right now, we are joined by someone who was frequently requested from the listeners OB is show. Some of them one of my favorite guests is the athletics. Ted win. Ted. How are you? Bill. Well, I didn't know I was frequently requested. So thank you people that put in those requests. You are highly regarded, the always, you know, you give us information that I don't have. I'm not someone who is anywhere near as versed in the exits. And those of the sport as you. So I'm learning a lot about how teams win games. And I'm very intrigued to hear what you think about the Rams Cowboys game. You were an attendee you were attending as a member of the media on Saturday night for this Rams Cowboys game. And I wanted to figure out what you saw you know, watching the game afterwards. But also just what he saw from the sidelines. How? In terms of this game plan in terms of what happened with the Rams in this game. The story afterwards has been oh, well, the Rams got back to what they do best. They were physical. They were running teams. We're gonna Cowboys scrimmage, and they were very good running the football in this game. What what about their running game worked on Saturday night against the Cowboys? What will a couple of things when they struggled to run the ball against the eagles and bears and towards the end of the season. You know, our my coworker, Vincent, he just wrote a story on the athletes about how the coaching staff and the front office really made it a point that they want to fix his running game because they know that everything to do on offense is based on this running game and having success on the ground of so even against the cardinals and the Niners towards ended season. They could've they they felt like they could have passed to win the game. But they decided that they're going to really focus in and fixes running game. And yet it did go back to run in the ball. But they also broke a bunch of tendencies that they might have showed on film earlier in the season against the Cowboys. I think that really befuddled them, for example of the Rams almost never run the ball from shotgun. And immerse drive of the game. They ran a inside sewn from shotgun and popped off twelve yards. And before the. Snap the linebackers ready dropping back because they were expecting past. Because I think that was like they they they've passable from shotgun. Like ninety percent of the time. So there's just breaking a bunch of tendencies like that. And just the the blocking up frontal system. This is great from them. And I talked a little bit more about some technical changes. They made in the the blocking scheme in my article that I'm actually writing for that. But right now. Yeah, I mean, certainly if you're going to make changes, this is the time to make them and showing stuff against a good college defense that it's well coach, and it's going to recognize sort of what you've done film over the past few weeks and make sense. This is the time you change it. But I mean, they were also running the ball effectively in week sixteen in week seventeen at C J Anderson are you shocked?.

"Because there's so much more to process as opposed to. I mean, I think the world is Pete Carroll, but Pete Carroll has is, you know, I want to run the ball. I wanna play great defense. I wanna create shop plays off of that. And that's the way p curls always been as opposed to a Bill Belichick who will switch his defenses from three, four, two, four, three base every couple of years based on college talent and run completely different structures on offense based on his personnel. I think you know, and again. Hey, Pete Carroll brought my my hometown team, a Super Bowl. I think he's a great coach, I think would be a great coach era. I think twenty to twenty five years from now, there'll be far more Bella checks than there will be Carol's. I think it will be far more important and necessary to marry an altered your scheme to personnel me the way around. I think that it is the wave and it is. It's a great point you bring up. It will be because there's so much more information and so much more to process, but that'll be kind of the base Sean McVeigh won't be the guy who came in nowhere to do this amazing thing. Sean McVay will be the norm. And how scary is that? Scary for defensive coordinator, that's for sure. I mean, I'm thinking about the brand full circle. We thought about talking about Andy Reid earlier when I was researching radical on read, I saw a quote from Mike Holmgren talking about spread quarterbacks, and he said, you know, like they're very talented, but there's a huge adjustment period to to playing in the NFL and. And those guys have to get used to playing under center inlets gonna take some time and it's going to force them change the way they re read defenses and it's going to hurt them in print. Some of them I'm exactly chapel aiding in this part of the quote, but like it's going to cause them to struggle. And Andy Reid said, basically the helmet, let's just put battery homes in the shotgun all the time and we'll figure it out from there. I mean, I think it certainly, you know the guys who have all the coaches who you know who are open to changing things, they have the longer timespan and you have like maybe there were guys in the past who were able to get by. But I think like you said, it's going to be difficult for those people to adapt because I think this the, the access to information the rate of change is going to be so much faster in the years to come. So it's going to be a fun sport to cover, but might not be the most fun sport to coaching, especially if you are a defensive minded coach all in with it. One of my favorite. And I mean, we both love myth busting. It's something that you know a lot ciders forced us to do. Yes, absolutely. That was the big thing. One of the most fun things about the book was just putting a hammer to the the idea that Vince Lombardi was this old fogy who only ran three play calls, right? I mean, one of the place used to win the nineteen sixty six NFL championship game was a flood delay. He theorized in the mid nineteen sixties that against on defense, he would run any thought about this. And I think if he'd coach in the seventies, he would have done it. He was talking about running no hurry up. No huddle against zone defense is on every play. There's a quote in the book about him saying, I would run two minute against these guys every single play. Well, zone defense became the norm in the early seventies. Can you imagine Vince Lombardi being chip Kelly when chip Kelly was probably still in high school. It's crazy. Well, Mr. friar so much, we'll talk to you about NFL stuff. It is a delight to read this book. I really, really enjoyed it. I can't go into the genius of desperation. These schematic innovations that made them under NFL. People should by that of course, but where can they check out more of your work. At USA today. Touchdown wire sites got a bunch of stuff up there and you can get the book on Amazon dot com or a triumph books website. Awesome. Well, duck, it's pleasure..

"It's it's really an if this and that thing you know, I come up with the, you know what when Paul Brown came in and he was widening the offense splits during that first NFL game with the eagles because he knew that the eagles defensive lineman always played to the blockers outside shoulders. So we just kept widening the line splits and eagles defend defensive lineman could do nothing but go out wide. And you know, all of a sudden there's the drop plate of Marion motley and. All these things and out of that team. I, the umbrella defense and then Tom Landers four, three. And then here comes to sit Gilman aerial attack. You know, we're gonna use all field and here comes the AFL defensive innovations, which was one of the more interesting things yes l. is emerging. Public is obviously known as the offensive league. They had more defensive innovations than nineteen sixties. Then the NFL did buy a fairly crushing margin. Wow. So here comes a west coast offense. We'll dick lebeau says, all right, hot stuff. I'm going to, you know do that with his own blitz. So I think it's if it's been, if this then that through NFL history, I think right now the preponderance of offenses innovation is compared to defensive. Innovation is fairly significant, and I think that's going to continue for a while because in college, and so many coaches are drawing from college ideas right now. There isn't a lot of defensive innovation. It's you're trying to hold back a damn, that's just about the burst, whereas on offense, you are, you are the the water force Burston the dam. And I think that's how the NFL is going to start to become, at least in the next few years. Yeah. I mean, do you do you think that we're going to see the sort of the next sort of dramatic shift is going to be something on the defensive side of the football or someone's going to come up with a way to sort of work on our PEOs or or someone's gonna come up with a way to sort of, you know, challenged right offenses, and you would imagine that's going to probably come at the high school or college level from a low level team that can't really compete with the bigger schools in their system and have to come up with a way to sort of challenge those now. Well, teams are nickel what sixty seventy percent or snaps now right? Anna, what dime is probably ten to fifteen. I think that it's not going to invert completely, but I think you're gonna see a lot more what I would call variable dime defenses. The eagles did us a ton last year and knock him Jenkins was kind of the Rover. He was kind of the the the moving chess piece because offenses have so many moving chess pieces right now, I think on defense, the only way to counter what indie redoes or certainly what Sean McVay does. We even talked about McVay my God that you know the only way to counter that you if you have a base defense now you're doing it wrong. You have to have about three and it sort of has to very proponent and precipitation. I'm gonna talking about suback edge. I'm talking about what what, how you line up on first and second down again to run team or a fairly equivalent run past team. I think you have to. I mean, we were talking about the chiefs in how Andy Reid really changed his offense. His passing philosophies in each of. The chiefs, I three games if you're facing that as an NFL defense and you say, we'll we're, we're gonna do. It was always done. I think you're dead before you hit the field. I think if you know, I've been watching and I've talked to Mark their DNV cannon, and I talked to sue Craven's watch film with him. These sort of dime linebackers. He's hybrid guys and they hit gaps like running backs, it gaps to stop running backs. So the defense develops offense philosophies to town or offenses. I think that's if you're going to see a defensive innovation, I would imagine more creative dime. Defenses would be the wave of the near future that when you've got Patrick Mahomes running second and soon to be third level or PEOs, you had better come up with something like that because otherwise it's just all over. Yeah. I mean, you're just sort of waiting to see what the offense doesn't hoping being tackled before they make it to the end zone. Is there..

"I mean, it's all been. I as a coach is a player. I we as a team are not good enough to be our opponent. We have to out think we have to introduce something new. So that was as well as the chronological arc which sort of took over the whole book and the decade decade thing. It was how many of these genius moments come about through desperation, and it was all of them right. I mean, even see that with, you know, with modern baseball, for example, you know, the the moneyball revolution in baseball happened because the Oakland a.'s could not compete with with other baseball teams in happy, find someone to innovate and of course it's harder to innovate schematically in baseball, those same things like shifts come up in recent years, but they innovated by using numbers. I mean, I, it's and the reason I think analytics revolution or whatever have not been in the NFL is because teams don't have to innovate in that way necessarily. And we're seeing with this, you know, we're seeing with the chiefs now were there. They were doing things. We Will Smith to to improve their offense as explosiveness that they couldn't have done. We saw with Nick foles in the Super Bowl that that the in the playoffs, the eagles had to turn to something. And so they went back some of the concepts that he'd run in college at Zona. It. It's really a fascinating thing, and it's fascinating to see sort of, you know, these coaches who even didn't have a lot successfully in their screw chip Kelly, as an example of a guy who was just a guy I before he figured out. Okay. Well, what if I played really fast is there, is there a trend you think to have innovation on one side of the ball or the other? I mean, do you think innovation is more like going to happen on the offense of side of the ball in the NFL as opposed to the defensive side of the ball? I think through the NFL and I learned this writing the book..

"And I mean, you think about the personal archetypes they've had well, they had that sort of, you know, hybrid receiver, the guy who was was faster than any tight end, but bigger than the vast majority of wide receivers. They had Markey's Colston at first and they had Jimmy Graham. Now they have Michael Thomas. They have the guy in that role, the speed threat. It was every Henderson perhaps in years past Robert mitchum I guess for a stretch. Now it's Ted Ginn who has had an incredible second half of his career for someone who you know was really a return guy when he entered the NFL didn't really know what he was doing get sometimes you learn the catchable. Right? But I mean, like I remember writing about gin a decade ago and being like this guy's an obvious bust, you know, doesn't know his wrap up of a blah. He's had an incredible second half. Miss career for a guy who was, you know, everyone wrote off this myself included. That's a bust after he didn't turn into a star wide receiver. Miami's had a great career, Alvin Kamara. Compare this to Brady and Belichick again, all the receivers that went to New England and all of a sudden became amazing, right? Because the patriots didn't ask you as receiver to do more than you were able to do things you weren't able to do. They didn't ask you to cross your skill set because while my coach says I do it this way, they looked at you and said, okay, you can do these three things. We will have you do these three things saints are very similar. Yeah. I, I think the other thing that people really don't talk about as much as they should. It's just how good this offense line is. I mean, they hit on Armstead who turned into an excellent life tackle Ryan. Ramczyk was immediately ineffective right? Tackle last year. And then Andrea speed has been hurt for most of this year. It's only been in lineup here there, but maximum Larry warford. I mean, this is a line they've invested a lot of draft is that's a lot of money and and I think it's really helped that offense gets the next level. The defense is a different story. But yes, yes, the defense is a different story through three weeks, and that's maybe one of those seasons where it's not going to be the the lofty heights of last year where they had a good defense. And so it was a one of the best seasons in in breezes career when it came to we must record. But I mean, this is an offense that is still going to make a lot of things happen. And I guess I was thinking about this before the year, but I write about it and I remember I actually wrote about it or not, but is it crazy to think that drew Brees has never really even come close to winning an MVP award. Yes. Well, I'm thinking the Bill, James black type. He's he's led the NFL in so many relevant statistical categories so often and at a lower level of Matthew Stafford argument when when he doesn't have a run game, of course, he has to throw, but he's not throwing, you know, six hundred times for three thousand yards. He's, you know, he's led the NFL multiple times in all sorts of categories. Although, again titles till the story to a certain extent, and yeah, that that it is actually crazy. He's never won the MVP never, never. I think he got like twelve oats the year that he that the saints won the Super Bowl. I mean, this is a guy who slightly can passing yardage one, two, three, four, seven times four times in patent testing, touchdowns passer rating once during that year where they did win the Super Bowl. I mean, it's it's, you know, maybe he's been consistently the second or third best quarterback in football, but he's been that quarterback for. Twelve thirteen years now it's really staggering to see just how consistent and how efficient he's been again on a team that hasn't always had a great running game that's had a pretty bad defense for this asteroid about time..

"R. n. w. e. l. l. ZipRecruiter the smartest way to hire right back here on the Bill Barnwell show. I'm Bill Barnwell. ESPN I'm joined by ferrar of USA today me talking about his book. The genius of desperation, schematic innovations that made the modern NFL and let's talk about these New Orleans Saints who I, what I find so fascinating about the saints. And just thinking about when I was writing about Andy Reid and writing about how his offense has evolved over the course of the last ten years, they've brought him more spread concepts to work with the sort of the west coast offense that Reid had had. Had grown up as a coach. Mike Holmgren think about the saints. Any think about Sean Payton and drew Brees. Those guys have been together for eleven twelve years now, and they're consistently one of the three or four best offenses in all football year after year after year. And they were great yesterday, five hundred thirty four yards drew Brees threw for almost four hundred yards. Alvin Kamara had fifteen receptions on twenty targets against the falcons for hundred twenty four yards. Michael Thomas was ten of ten. I mean they they had excellent drive in overtime to deny the falcons, the ball and score that game winning touchdown. I mean, how is this offense sort of evolved over the years? I mean is it just that breezy and paid in her so good that they can make anything work? Or have there been sort of significant shifts in how that offense is worked. It's, you know, it's been interesting and I would compare the Peyton breeze relationship to what and because we've had different offense coordinator. I'll say, Bill Belichick Brady is kind of shorthand. And I, I wrote about this years ago, you know, Brady has it's been the same playbook, but he's had such different personnel. And then there's so many different ways. I mean in the late two, thousands, the saints offense was the one that essentially made Nikola base defense because they were flexing Reggie Bush into the slot like ten times a game, and that third linebacker was dying. He couldn't keep up right, and I maintain that Sean Payton switched the three, the three linebacker in four, three. He created the forty five is a base he made it not only possible but necessary to do that. So you had that and you had, you know, slow receivers to a point, and then you know a couple years back here. Remember people saying, well, researched have the same arm strength. Well. Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn I think is just flying. You know, they've gone through different interational of the offense. I think the philosophy is the same. I think breezes a short to intermediate level distributor of the ball with very few equals in NFL history. And now especially with Thomas he and he had this with Jimmy Graham before he's not found Jimmy grams equal in that offense. And I think they should reunite because Graham isn't any good anywhere else. I watch him in Seattle. It's like Mike, Ditka Buddy Ryan. Will you please put these guys back? It doesn't work anywhere else, you know. But Payton has such an understanding of his offense personnel and and he and breeze or so mind locked in that way that they'll adjust. And when they didn't have deep fritzy futures back, you know, Brees would attempt if you howitzers downfield and they misfire runs at always getting old. Deep arms, just fun. It's like Brady deep arm is just flying when he's got somebody can throw to, you know. So I, I would compare it to that in that it's it's changed over the years, but the principles are the same. I think the playbook is primarily the same. It's just it's, it's a brilliant example of adjusting scheme the personnel. Yeah..

"NFL to win the Super Bowl, ask the Packers few years back after the after the two teams in Super Bowl, forty three, the Steelers and the cardinals who I believe by DVD measure had the thirty first and thirty seconds right attacks in the NFL. Do you need that? I don't know. Does this team needed? I don't think so. I think there is sort of a. Kind of a misty correlation between how good your is and how did you running game needs to be because something has to chew up clock and it either has to your defense or it has to be a run game because the this team's capacity for explosive plays is amazing, but explosive plays also burn a lot of fuel and from that perspective, that's where they could run into trouble because their defense is better than I thought it would be. But you know. I mean how many teams have won the Super Bowl by forcing other teams, you know, just building up a lead and turning on the gas it. It's hard to maintain that for entire season. Yeah. I mean, you might think about the offense. And I think there are certainly people who are gonna look there and say, well, Ryan Fitzpatrick has had these hot one or two games stretches in the past. He had success. You know here are there with Chan Gailey when he was running really a spread offense there in in buffalo in New York. I mean, do you do you think fits his decision making and his deep thorough ability or going to be able to keep up and half that sort of Boulter season, or do you think this is an offense that in the long run, they're going to have to go to Jameis Winston to sort of keep this up over the course of an entire season. I think it's Patrick is actually a better quarterback for this offense than Winston because Winston, I think Winston has a bit of the Jay Cutler curse where he believes too much in his arm and he will. I have seen him at times he will. He'll balk at the easy opening and try to make the hero through. And this offense does not require you to make the hero. Throw this offense requires you to simply wait for one of your outside receivers to demolish whatever pull cornerback he's, you know. Ju I refer back to Jackson seventy five zero touchdown where just turn mills into a piece of toast and all all Fitzpatrick was wait for you opening hit. You know, throw these guys then -ticipant bang you at this point, you need a point guard who can throw really far with Winston. I think. I don't use this as a criticism. I think it's common of quarterbacks. I think my home says an element of it where he will try to make the throw that nobody else can make. And that's not what you need, what you need an offense like this is what I mean, that attitude serves Russell Wilson. Well, because he's running for his life and maybe his receivers are open and maybe they're not in an offense. Like this. I mean, you, you take the profit and you move on and they got a lot of profit to be made is stain -able if everyone stays healthy. Yeah, and I would rather if it would mean if I were cutter, I'd stick with Fitzpatrick until I saw something that convinced me. Otherwise, I'm not sure Winston could convince me otherwise Fitzpatrick would have to do something that he's not doing now in a negative sense down in Fitzpatrick's interception rate before heading to the bucks was three point, four percent over the last two years, obviously limited time. So far over the course of five starts and two hundred twenty pass attempts. One point, seven percent. So I mean, he has not been three interceptions anywhere near as frequently during his time in Tampa Bay under dur- cutter and taught monk in. We're gonna hit a break. We're gonna come back with Doug talking about what are the saints, and then we're gonna talk about his book after the break.

"We have the tickets now back to the show. So you brought up the books and I wanted to talk about their offense because they have been just as effective as the chiefs have been through two games, and it's not as exciting of a story perhaps because it's on a new quarterback, but we're seeing Ryan Fitzpatrick suddenly play like he is Steve Young and I'm not. I'm not used to that. I was not expecting that from fits. So what are you seeing? I mean, obviously they've made some changes type Mahnken who was the former Mississippi State head coach is now play caller, but what's changed about the buck. Nears offense. That's unlocked what? What Patrick isn't able to do through two weeks. Why? I wasn't joking with the Bolger greatest show on turf you watch. I mean, I I have the ninety nine Rams OTA installed playbook, and there are a lot of similar concepts. What's different this year is Sean Jackson is healthy, and so now you have and you saw this again and they've done this twice. They will. They will apps. We're doing this before Monday night football, they will kill the Steelers with this. What they do is they do three by one sets and Evans on one side. Usually the three lights that Jackson Izzy excise. So on the other, they force the deep safety to run to the three side, right? And that's where it's it's the Sean one on one and asked Jalen mills how that works Sean. Leverages you on a quick post and you're just standing there going. I was covering him and now I'm not. So you different vein with Travis Kelsey, he's not a, he's not going to burn you div necessarily, but he's going to late against a cornerback out out muscle them for on Aslan or post. Well, what he does is you know the safety or the slot. The second slot, the senators after tyreek hill and Chelsea goes, oh, I'll just run a twelve yard angle round. Eat this up all day, right? He was I mean on Sunday. He was just so good with that. So with the buccaneers you start with Evans on one side and Jackson, the other Evans is you know what? Six, five, four, three, five speed. So he's own problem. So they're running if they're running vertical routes, done field that seventy five yard touchdown to OJ Howard you had Evans on one side outside. Yeah. Jackson Lee Jackson was eyeso- on the right side, and they both looked like they were running verts and they, I think they both ran in cuts and it just the entire eagles defence like. And and Nigel, Brad him was trying to cover the screen. And Nigel Brennan was trying to three guys at once and the guy wasn't covering was OJ Howard who ran the cross over his head and that was that. So even if you figure out how to cover both Evans and Jackson, which basically you have to run too high. You have to bracket both of them or they'll kill you. Then that leaves, oh, you know, all sorts of heck underneath. And that's, you know, Malkin has certainly has a history of this was he just wants to put so many stress points on your defense, and it's very Markian guild. Gilman did this. Coryell did this. But this aggressiveness reminds me most of Mike March. I'm gonna kill you with space. And so when I, if you go back and watch when in the early two, thousands, when. Mark Bolger is doing all these numbers. I think it's similar to that. I think it's take your two vertical guys and those are sort of the that's the frame of the picture. And the inside picture is all the stuff underneath and there is diverse offense in that there is a diverse vertical offense as I've ever seen in the NFL. It's really cool to watch. The one thing I would say that the the one concern maybe I would raise and I think this is not going to continue to be the case as that you would think, okay, if they're playing too high all the time, if they're they're threatening teams vertically, they should be able to run the football pretty well..
"farrar" Discussed on The Bill Barnwell Show
"Yeah, I mean, you'd figure that the simple the stuff that works on everything will work on this, which is if you get a great pass rush, you can pressure Mahomes and then the homes is efficiency will go down, but we saw yesterday. I mean he he just brand twenty yards backwards and then found Chris calmly in the back of the end zone for wide open touchdown. I mean, it's it's, there's not some simple thing I, it's not like there's something where you look at the numbers from from my perspective and say, okay, well, you know granted, yes, he's not gonna throw touchdowns ninety percent of the time in the red zone. That's probably not going to happen, but if he throws touchdowns sixty percent of the time in the red, so that still the best offense in football and he's playing a incredibly high level. And like you said, it seems like read, you know, we, we've seen. Gene spread concepts from him in the past with Alex Smith, and they had Brad Childress on staffer years. They had Chris old who developed the pistol at Nevada on staffer a couple years as well. I mean, clearly they spent years integrating the stuff with Smith and also waiting for this moment where they had someone who you know was a had Eric experience in college at spread experience in college, but also has the arm strength and the ability to do things that few quarterbacks on the planet are capable of doing, which is scary. I mean, you look at well, I know. They had this last year was Smith you only he didn't have with the ability to make those zip throws into really tight windows, right? But that offense made Smith the most prolific passer in the NFL and anyone who said they'd ever say that sentences. Why? Now it's like you put, you know, you put a hamming in that in that car. And that's what my homes is. He's next level because he's he's tougher to deal with in a running speed level and over and over. He's making these absolute stick through razors. But he also has touch and he has Arkansas has velocity, and he's in the perfect system. And I, you know, I hear people are see people on Twitter will, gosh, the bear should have gotten Mahomes. Can you imagine Patrick Mahomes in whatever that offense was in twenty seventeen, right? I dunno survived it. Yeah. Yeah. And I, you know, it's perfect, quarterback. Perfect weapons, perfect system, right? And I think it's easy to sit here and say, oh, well, you know. Maybe maybe that's the wrong way to put it. But I think there is going to be that thing. Oh, well, he ended up with Andy Reid and Andy Reid can make anybody could. I know I've said that in the past about quarterbacks when they go to Andy Reid, he's incredible at making quarterbacks getting the most out of quarterbacks who didn't have a lot of success elsewhere weren't as effective playing away from Andy Reid, and that's true. But at the same time Mahomes is, you know, he I don't think he would have necessarily succeeded everywhere, but I think like you said, it's the best possible combination of quarterback and coach, and they've been building up the situation for years, and I think they are well positioned to be able to do you know if not this level of offense all season, at least to be barring injury to Mahomes or to one of their their contributors to be the best offense in football over the rest of the season. Well, I think this, I think it's an Andy Reid is obviously one of the best guys. This Mike Homer as always great at this Bill Walsh, obviously. I think it's far easier to make an average quarterback good than it is to make a good quarterback. Great, because going from good to great requires so many more things you can put an average guy in there. I mean, you could argue that Ryan Fitzpatrick is average, and he's in a system where he's a sensually Mark Bolger running the greatest show on turf comparison. I want s. bucks actually. I mean, I think that's a really interesting thought really quickly. I think the things that make you going from average to good, you know, you run a few concepts you think can be covered three and you know how much arm strength this guy doesn't have. It's kind of like what wall stood in. You know, talk about this in the book with Virgil Carter when Greg cook got hurt, you know, he invented the west coast offense because he didn't.

"And when I was writing about this for ESPN this morning, I happened to do some research and I found article by, oh, who do you know duck for our talking to Patrick Mahomes before the draft in two thousand seventeen strange weird. So you talk to Mahomes and he talked about sort of the difficulties that Arad quarterbacks and spread quarterbacks face at the NFL in the past. And you pointed out that Mahomes might stand out as a likely exception to the struggles of those quarterbacks. What did you think at the time about Mahomes and how is he sort of lived up to those expectations through his first four starts in the NFL? Yeah, over the last five years I've probably talked, I've done. I've watched tape with Acas twenty players issue Mahomes on the more. Impressive guys and you hear Erade offense. It's all you know, one would calls and cartoon, you know, plasterboard on the line and you know, check with me some of the time. And so I posted those questions to him and he's like, well, you know, in cliff kings kings, his offense. I and I have watched tape with Davis Webb. I've watched with Nick Schimanek. I've watched tape with three quarterbacks of worked under and they all said the same thing. Now it's all the same place. You know, ninety five means the same thing and what I I'm not sure how the chiefs are. Disseminating the information to Mahomes so he can call it. I don't imagine it's the usual twenty word west coast, play stuff that Gruden likes to brag about. You know nine in it's interesting kings offense. Ninety five showed the receipt. It was these are all the routes. These are all the block and concepts. Now the check with me from ninety five, which is, you know, that's if I was a run play. Ninety. Five is similar routes except you're not blocking you're running routes, and then you know this little blocking thing might change. You go to ninety six, but within that to number system, the entire offense is described. So you're not, you know, you're not saying one word is the blocking scheme and one weirdos let the x. does and one doesn't why under. So it's it's two numbers or very quick quick. But within that is a myriad of possibilities and Mahomes had full audible permission. And he told me about some of the play calls that when more advanced, you know, good, ten wordplay calls, but Kingsbury would package them into ninety. Five and ninety five was all you need this. No, what I learned from a homes and just watching the tape he was experienced with second. And third level reads, he was experienced with back door fades. He could make any throw. I remember talking about the Texas game where he through. I think three interceptions in could have thrown eight. I mean, he was swinging the ball downfield kind of irresponsibly, and I brought up the gunslinger word and he said, I'm never going to lose that. And that was my one concern about him. I wasn't worried about anything else. And when you went to the chiefs of the Andy Reid is just going to light it up at the sky because he Andy going back to the McNabb as as always loved the the west coast offense. But with a vertical almost Gilman Correal March three digit component to it, and he likes to merge those options. So now he has Tyree kill and the one thing I mean, I've been what I've seen all three games and the most interesting thing. Me is just the sh the smorgasbord of stuff. Right? And we just throwing it defenses week one against the chargers. It was, you know, two touchdowns to the four touchdowns we're little option pitches re trying to hide the mesh plant, and that was cool. And then he had a simple slant to tyreek hill often RPO red Denzil Perryman playing run. Bang. That's it. And Tiree killed to the rest. Second week he throws six touchdowns five or from the pocket accounted to three second or third level reads, that was the game where he just became a quarterback and he did it against the Steelers, but it's still impressive. And in the third game, it was more, you know, flip screens getting the running backs involved. He had a second level RPO for a big play. And I saw that I'm like, oh my gosh, they're running second and third level or PEOs which the Cowboys did last year, but not a lot of teams have really, you know where you're reading your reading the defender, and you may hand off, but if you don't hand off, you.

But I would think you know if I'm looking at that offense, you know, you're not going to dominate without concepts. They may just have to go quick quick like they did a few years ago. Yeah, new even saw that in the Super Bowl where they lost Brandin cooks early in that game to a concussion, and they're able to move the ball well. But what they did was they went very fast with tempo for most let game didn't allow the eagles substitute. Those defensive lineman try to slow down the pass, rush that way. It seems like they're struggling with getting guys open. It seems like they're struggling to integrate Sony Michelle into the offense. And I think we saw, you know, we saw a bunch of third and one's yesterday where we saw an offense. That for years has basically run the same play on there. One at their insured in fourth and short and about the goal line really run that sort of quick tempo outside zone. And we saw Matt Patricia who was very comfortable slanting his defense right into it, and handsome success at stopping it. So, I mean, do you think are, are you concerned about their ability to play sort of off their their prior. There prior is not you to their offense has been figured out because this is not exactly a new offense. But I mean, do you think they have to make sort of more wholesale changes to the offensive scheme to try and create opportunities for the guys they do have. Well, it depends on what they wanna do. They haven't had like an every down water carrier since Corey Dillon, and that was a decade ago, Lear at blunt was a really prolific goal line guy. And they, you know, they'll bring in James white who they love. I think as far as inside zone outside zone, unfortunately, for the patriots. The ideal rookie running back for that was on the other team last night and Carrie Johnson. Michelle is versatile guy. He does a lot of things well, but again, it's, you know, it I, I don't think the offensive line is. It's it's developing, right? You know this, this may be one of those seasons. I remember watching the Bill chick football life from two thousand nine and about week twelve or thirteen. You could see him on the sidelines, and I think you said we don't have it this year and that just made it may be one of those years for them where they go ten and six and losing the first round and load up for next year and destroy everybody. But right now, as it stands on offense and defense, I don't see, you know what you're expected to see from the patriots because you're seeing a lot of blown assignments. You're seeing a lot of guys getting opened on. I mean, I talked to you in col- for like five minutes after the Jaguars patriots game, and he was talking about the incredible one handed catch and the Fayed touchdown from Bortles and you said I was doing was running in a straight line and getting open and you're not supposed to. That's literally what he's an and you watch the tape and that's what it was. Right? You're not supposed to be able to do that against Bella check defense. So they've got, you know, beyond the injuries and trae flowers was out, Eric Rowe was up. Some people might say, rose out is an improvement on coverage, but certainly flowers out is a ban problem after Charles t. Yeah, they're a team in transition on both sides of the ball and Brady has covered up so many of those issues in the past. I think they'll find ways for him to do that. But and people talk about the September swoon and Brady's. You know this against that. We'll see right now as it stands and I wanna see what that offense looks like. If gronk is healthy and Gordon is in there and element is back..

"Manhattan, New York. It's Monday, September twenty four. Two thousand eighteen had a very interesting week three to talk about. Also read a very interesting book this weekend, James of desperation. These schematic innovations that made the modern NFL by a former colleague of mind, pal of mine, someone who has a ton of knowledge when it comes to be passed the NFL, the Xs and those the NFL and someone who were having on say to talk about week three and talk about that book. It is the national NFL writer for USA today. It's Mr. Doug Farrar Doug. How are you. Mean we were way back. We were drafted by Aaron shots in the two thousand six football outsiders draft class. Fortunately, I guess that when really old, that's the thing, it's been a long time like it feels like I've been writing on the internet for room for five years and turns out it's been twelve twelve years. That is it's an it's longer than the vast majority of NFL careers. But here we are. We are still writing about football and you have an awesome book. We're going to get to that bit, but I'm excited stuck about week three with you and talk about interesting situations that are happening on the NFL and let's start, I think with what we saw last night in the Sunday night game from the New England Patriots where you sorta figured, okay, well, patriots lost to the Jags. Jake's. I have a great defense. Patriots are going to be angry. They are going to want revenge, Tom Brady as whatever record after a loss. All this work. It's the worst because they really, it's not deliver much against the lions last night, a team that is not looked very good this season whatsoever. We saw in offense that seems stagnant that wasn't getting receivers open and I want to know what do you think about the patriots offense through through and what do you think is causing their troubles to to move the ball? Well, I think right now the the main issue is that it's rob gronkowski in the pips and winning again. Out until week five. They didn't activate Gordon and I maintain that the way the Jaguars specifically safety to Shawn Gibson handled gronkowski and week to was sort of the the focal point for, okay, we need to go out and get a Josh Gordon. We need to get another weapon because everyone's just mugging gronkowski to death. And there's no one else right now who has the capacity to be that ultimate weapon. And you know, we, we talk about the complexity of New England's offense and one of the interior complexities. And I go into this in the book is their use of option. They have the biggest option route playbook in the NFL may have for over a decade and they've sort of tried to make Chris HOGAN, that guy, but it's really Eshelman and and gronkowski understands the option routes. Although his main thing is just being gronk and you know, body ING everyone out and jumping over everyone. But if you don't have that sort of option route, epicenter, which is one Welker was what element has been. Come you're kind of taking about half of Brady's passing game away from him. You know, Dorsett is still learning the offense. HOGAN is kind of a betwixt and between possession guys, speed guy, he can do both, but not at what you would call an elite level, right? And even when Gordon gets on the field, then they're going to have to guys in Corredor. Patterson include himself who are both physical weapons, but don't really understand route concept. So you know, it's it's not. It's not something I in their current offense. I don't know if their receivers have the capacity to run it and I, I will be interested to see as the season goes on few years back when Bella check was talking with chip Kelly lot, and they set a, I'm trying to remember season. It was twenty four hundred twenty fifteen. They set the record for snap off into snaps in a season, and they were just going quick quick quick and one word play calls and things like that. They may have to sort of revert to that ideal to get their offense going because I. Just don't know if they have the, you know, and I'm not calling any of these guys dumb. You don't play receiver in the NFL dumb for the most part. But I don't know if there is the current mental acuity to run the system, one hundred percent as it's supposed to be..
There are more suicides in US and Mexico when the temperature rises
"Policy might help Sanchez especially if Democrats failed to take back the house November the job opened up after the current caucus. Chair congressman Joe Crowley from New York lost to a twenty eight year old, Latino activists in. A primary. Election upset last, month for the California report I'm Scott Schafer the warming climate make, Harry a, snow Leaky effect on mental health that's according to researchers at two bay, area universities who. Say hotter temperatures raise the risk of suicide here's QB's Molly Peterson going back to the eighteen hundred scientists sociologists and. Poets all noticed, more people die by suicide in spring that's caused other researchers to wonder if. Warmer. Temperatures are the reason why Stanford's Marshall Burke studies earth system sciences he and colleagues. At UC Berkeley mast decades of temperature records and death records for the US and Mexico they found that when temperatures rose about two degrees Fahrenheit deaths by suicide rose by about one percent even a one percent. Effective multiplied across many people, in in the United States implies a very large, additional health burden from increasing temperature the study doesn't suggest, that, hot temperatures cause people to harm themselves and Burke stresses that suicide, has other larger and well documented risk factors but based on this data. And on global models this team projects that of climate Change continues unchecked until the middle of this century hotter temperatures, could cause at least twenty thousand additional deaths, that sounds like an abstract. Statistic but which you think of that as. Individuals in individual, families that are going to be fundamentally. Affected by this if, temperatures increase Burke says air conditioning and, wealth don't seem to limit the link between hotter temperatures and suicide. So as climate changes he expects the risks of heat to human health will keep rising for the California report I'm Molly Peterson let's continue to consider heat but look at someone who thrives in it last night fifty.
