"We'll typically Nick your twelve personnel. What it does to the defense is you don't really have a strong side. He put tied in on both sides balls in the middle of the field. That's the reason why these oftens is very very effective against a defense. That's going to play multiples like New England. I like the fact that we're going to change personnel. But we're also going to change what we did. I'm gonna take it to another level. Okay. Twelve personnel. Too tight ends on the field. Also, I'm going and shotgun. They don't do a lot of running the football from shotgun. When Jared goff's in the shotgun. They throw the ball an awful lot. So twelve personnel that thinking run I put him in the shotgun. Where they thinking they're thinking pass. So now, I put a couple of your components in one equal Asian and then I run tied girly Todd Gurley. Besides being multi girl gotta get twenty touches. The Rams aren't going to win this game. And to me, they don't have to be in the traditional tailback spot. I would line him up out wide put him in motion. You know, what running speeds we New England hate. Now what they do. They do a great job with leverage. They do not want you to get around the outside. So what about put your best running back in a wide receiver spot in speeds, only outside and one thing? I know what Bill Belichick what he tries to do Manzini talks about all the time. He wants to fight in the phone booth. This has to be the most physical game that the Rams have played all season. They got a better offense of line. I go with two tight ends and the game. I believe that they're bigger and stronger than New England's interior. I believe they can have a huge advantage there and on the defensive. Side, man, you got a tackle in space the way they beat the Rams the greatest show on earth with bumping 'em and tackling. The Rams have to build a do that to New England gronk Eshelman James white, no matter when they get the football. You need them to be down within two to three yards. That's the way the Rams I believe Nick having a couple of components of what you like. And what coach like throw that at the patriots. The other thing that liked to the Rams do consistently. They weren't move the pocket place or boot or a dash to the offenses left and typically that doesn't happen and that's hard for back. Well, it's hard for right hand quarterback. But it's also hard for right handed defense. You're used to seeing those plays over and over come to your defenses left. Right. So you have this you call it a robot reaction, there's robot reactions to those routes because they're so traditional. The nation's you can route read them when he rolls out to the right? The middle. Linebacker turns and waits for the cross. Yeah. It's it's like a click world reaction to the guys and your program. Now, when it goes the other way, you're not used to fitting those routes with that group of personnel. So you may do ten reps of boots to your left versus one or two reps of boots. You're right and the Rams throughout the the year have done a good job of pressuring teams on that side of the ball. We started this segment talking about age you mentioned the difference between bergdahl check is. And where McVeigh's age even matter is there is there any part of the patriots game plan. That's going to be exposing Goffin McVeigh for their lack of experience in this game. More than any other golf more than McVeigh. I think they are going to try to explain the lack of NFL football and high leverage football. Golf's played like that is any as part of bull by trying to show them things that will surprise him by doing similar things to what they know what the Rams want to do and one of the reasons Bella check is teams of. Won eighteen straight games against quarterbacks twenty five and under is young quarterbacks. Even really good young quarterbacks. They played the best young quarterback last week. And they said, hey, the thing that you had the most success with Tigres kill we're taking it away..

"It was very, and this is where I think people can learn the lesson of even when things even when you're angry or things look bad scorching, the earth is not necessarily a good option because LeBron could made himself full after the fact LeBron could've after the trade happened could have said some things either on the record or off the record negative out. Carrie could've done one of those very passive aggressive Instagram things that he's known to do. Lebron always stayed above the fray on it. And then when the Celtics played the Cavs at first game of the year and kyri missed the potential game winner in the corner. Lebron slim went over game a Hegg hug patted him on the head maybe a little condescending. And he whenever he was asked about it. He always spoke good about the kid is he called him and that left the door open to if Kyrie wanted to reconcile. They could tant your question. How would it happen? Well, there's the very basic. He's a free agent. The Lakers could just sign him outright this off season. Even if they don't get Anthony Davis. The more interesting of the options is if the Lakers, execute a trade for Anthony Davis before the deadline, the right trade, and they leave the money open because there's been so much talk around the league about kyri Anthony Davis playing together everyone always assumed that would be in Boston. It's one of the reasons that Celtics were so thrilled to get Kyrie Irving. Those guys have such good relationship. Those guys being Anthony Davidson kyri, but I don't think those guys care where they play together. I do Anthony Davis and Kyrie would like to play together. It's one of the reasons why the trade request was made when it was to try to set. The second domino in motion to see if the third one can fall this summer to the Boston, south X. Yes. Last year, they were this was their path. It was bad young talent. Who were clearly on the rise. There was talk. I wanted to stay. He said he wanted to stay. And now, it seems like he wants to jump ship and they're losing guys. And they're not gonna get Anthony Davis. I mean, this is. Team that was up here that seems to be now trending downwards right now. No need to overreact. I love that. We got it. So I'm gonna give you try to give you some information that you won't have to decide to do with that. It's totally up to you this forty games, we still haven't gotten to the all star break. We don't know what's going to happen with Boston. Because if Boston's able to make it to the finals, this would have been a great year, and it changes. So I just don't overreact right now. Kyri was always owned the board that he could leave Boston. Now young players. They just assume oh, we went to we went to the Eastern Conference finals last year. I made a score thirteen points next year. I'm gonna get fifteen eighteen I made a play twenty two minutes. Now, I'm getting more minutes. It doesn't always work out. Like that. Kyri didn't come the training camp in great shape. And I didn't think the accolades people were giving brand Stevens, especially this guy. I wasn't in a rush to do that. Because I hadn't seen him. Coach great players, and I was concerned an MBA is different than Butler, and what they had last year with the injuries was like Butler when you get an MBA roster with egos and all that that's what they're experiencing now. So I don't see the greatness. I don't hear commentators saying. Oh Brad Stevens in great. Great endgame adjustment. No. They're struggling just like everyone else. So how will Brad Stevens do coaching elite talent the jury is still out on that? And I also don't think the sky is falling in Boston yet..

"Heireann welcome. The first thing Spurs all with you were here for the pep talk to flakes about thirty seconds ago. We are excited do this. Yeah. Have another sip. I'm general that's the hall of fame. Cris carter. This is Nick, right. You're happy. We got a lot of basketball. Your, Hoppy, we got a lot of football to talk about much more fallout from the Anthony Davis trade requests. I'm just happy that I'm here. You're just wanna make sure that he all know how happy I am that trade request affects the Lakers that affects the Knicks it affects the Celtics, but we are going to start with the big game coming up. This Sunday is called the Super Bowl Super Bowl media night. Pretty much a free for all for anyone credential than anyone holding a microphone if you've been there. You know, what I'm talking about every player will be asked to everything imaginable yesterday. The Rams and patriots were introduced to the media ahead of Super Bowl fifty three and it was Nicole Roby. Komen. Who may be biggest news Earl? Earlier in the day with his comments about Tom Brady. Coleman said this about arguably the greatest quarterback of all time age has definitely taken a toll for him to still be doing it. That's a great compliment for him. But I think that he's definitely not the same quarterback. He was now Coleman backtrack a bit. When asked about his comments on opening night. Great quarterback. I'm trying to say that bottom. Respect him. Ask the goat. His wisdom legis and. Got mistress rules. I'm not taking nothing away from his game. I can't take from his games. No. This is my first appearance. He'd been in place many times in this position. So I'm not gonna make a big this situation. Said words got taken out of context. I respect. Air on Sunday. Now, you interpret what we'll be Coleman said. You're walking back just a little bit RTC. Should the Rams be giving Tom Brady bulletin board? Material ahead of the Super Bowl given the chip already seemingly is carrying with him into this game. I don't think it's Bill bulletin board. Material. There's a lot of things that transpired during the game. Guys are gonna say worse to you during the game. So you don't get to the Super Bowl looking for extra motivation. So for me, Tom Brady, the reality. He is forty one. He's not as good as he was before. So it wasn't like he made up something. If Tom Brady goes out there. The guy is participated in the Super Bowl more than anyone else. Looking for one little thing to motivate him. No. You know what Tom Brady the biggest motivation? He's got he's trying not to leave it Lanta after nine Bill parents being five and four. That's the biggest thing he got time to be worrying about any by Trask talkin ain't got time to be worrying about all this other stuff that have nothing to do with Izzy. Going to build a win the game. No one has more experienced than him. No one has more experience in situations. Like this people think they don't talk trash the town Brady every single week. Yes. We just very seldom here, but every single we guys are gunning for the best player in pro football. And that's Tom Brady. So no, I don't expect this to be bulletin board. Material. I don't think Bill check will even mention it again. Now, Edman other people. Yeah, they might they might say something, but this is not motivation when you get to this level and your Tom Brady, this might sound odd. But if there is ever a situation where for a game and a player that anything you say is not going to have any impact whatsoever. It would be this game the Super Bowl and this player Tom Brady. We can't simultaneously say one of the things that makes Tom Brady goat is that he is as motivated as any player we've seen works as. Hard as any player we've seen that. He consistently tries to find the holes in his game. Two to shore them up state good at what he's always been great at and attacks each and every game each.

"It's made the referees less certain of what they're seeing what there is. Because they have the crutch of the replay Mark stick around. We're gonna we're gonna talk more football on the other side coming up who's the discord between Brady and Bella check overstated that's next on first things. First. Purse. Thunder.

Didn't go back to California didn't go play for the Lakers is stands small-market not too much different than the paces. It's amazing to see him grow his game with Russell Westbrook. Because now you can't say all it's Russia's fault. Now last broadcasts clear path to the rim takes off for the big Tomahawk timing. That's one of those angry vintage Russell Westbrook dunks. Where it looks like he injures the rim that Russ Russ was on one yesterday. Go get it and his we've been waiting to see at now that he's in year. Ten will the explosiveness start to trail off? You can go to every game. Inspect to see this so explosive die down a little bit. Yeah. You sometimes you get a sneak preview finally mass clippers Luca Danni change with nice behind the back move to split the D for the easy layup, and then the nice little lefty lay of. Go get it Luca. You know, Daryl Morey is going to be on the show later today. I wanna talk about Luca. I I have a good feeling. He's big fans. Luke as we are. But I don't know how much you can say because NBA silly tampering stuff. But he is having maybe you should ask him before he gets online going. He's not here yet. I got that handled. See onto the Dallas Cowboys. They won the NFC Stana playoff game for the first time since twenty fourteen but as expected wasn't all roses along the way, we're learning now that one of the players was unhappy with his role this season. And that was cold Beasley. He responded to a fan on twenty yesterday with a whole lot of raw truth said honestly, the front office pushes who they want to get the ball to. I haven't been a huge priority in that regard. Maybe that will change, but I'm not sure more boss, come my way in two minute drills. Where nothing as planned doesn't mean. I'm gonna I'll play anywhere where I can make more of an impact I would love for that to be Dallas or anywhere else. That will give me more pops to make an impact. I just wanna ball. It's hard with three to four opportunities. A game. See you shook your head a little bit while I was reading that. What was your reaction to this? They throw the Kobe's Leogane. Should they throw ten times soon? I mean, let's not lose perspective on who. You are. You you mentioned the rawal truth rawal, truth Tate. They no truth to this. Kobe has not been a priority because he hadn't been good enough. How about that? How about Kobe? You look in the mirror say, you know, something I've never been the best wide receiver owned Dow's. I've never been the best to top two. Why receivers on douse this year? He had opportunity in that opportunity. Dow's is often enter passing game was so bad. You know, what they had to do? Crisis alert break the glass train for Maury Kupa. Yes. So that's the reason. Why Kobe's you're very very limited. You're not a special teams player. You are only a slot receiver. You are not a deep threat..

"No, other coaches that have coached with him. No people have played with Tom Brady. And there's not a lot of information on these relationships. So for me, a lot of this stuff is guessing a lot of the stuff it is gossip because there's not a lot of information out of that relationship. So I believe a lot of the media. Attention people add things to what happened. Ultimately, they had to make a decision on Jimmy Garoppolo if he was going to stay EFI was going to go now bell. Check might want it something else. But Tom Brady's ability to play at forty that changed the game chain him playing the MVP level at forty regardless of what Bella check believed in a right? It became evident Tom Brady one to finish his playing career with the New England Patriots. So for me. I don't think there was this much tension there as people would try to make us try to believe there was tension there compared to theirs automatically going to be tension in a work relationship. Specially when you can't control your exit, and that's the way it is with Tom Brady and New England what people like to do so often is pull them apart. We'll does one need the other who's more important who won that game. Who's responsible more for the titles? Who's responsible more for the success? But it appears to be them together are responsible for the success that they wouldn't be able to survive almost five or thrive if he will separate from each other. Why are even asking that question? I mean. Can you think of another relationship in sports that has we just talked about? In Green Bay with McCarthy and Rogers one or two seasons of Ambien a little upset and they had to separate the two. I'm sure that has gone over the years where there are times where Tom Brady's frustrated. But I can't imagine the two of them not being together and not being right? It's it's an it's a sports on known. And we'll never know it like, the what would Bella checks career have been like with the different quarterback. Brady's crew would have been like with the different coach. I do think there are there are paths to go down where for both of them. It doesn't end anywhere near greatest of all time discussion. But what what we know is what we know. Which is together they have accomplished unprecedented. And it's not just unprecedent would have been seemingly. I would've told you Chris. Or when you were retiring, would you retired the year after they won their first Super Bowl that? Hey, these guys are going to go to eight more of these things together. They're going to win four. More maybe five more. I don't think you would have believed. It was possible. I don't think anyone thought that it would I would put that in a bag of Nick, right? Hot takes. I mean, this is not going to hap- eight is more. When people say when LeBron went to the heat, and he was like, not six not seven that seemed outlandish, but it didn't seem impossible when people talk about the warriors. If they stay together. Could they win four in a row five and row? It seems outlandish but not impossible what the patriots have done seems impossible. The only reason it's believable is because we saw it happen. And obviously clearly doesn't happen without these two guys coming together at the exact moment, they did in the way they bell. Check can't coach the way he wants to coach unless he has a quarterback like Tom Brady. So for me, Bella check will always be more important his impact on the fifty three man roster..

"Your three hundred zero Tom Cruise that. Hey back to the NFL playoff, Tom Cruise. Just give away a little secret back in the playoffs where the Rams are heading to New Orleans to face the saints. These two teams played earlier in the season the saints handing the Rams their first loss in twenty eight teen Rams cornerback Marcus Peters has been waiting for the chance at revenge ever since some spicy things to say saints head coach Sean Payton after that week nine loss. Take a listen. Paying keep talking. We don't seem so fair enough because I like what he was saying on the sidelines to so tell you keep talking, and I hope you see some family, and then we'll have a good look nice love bowl of Gumbo together. So that was back in week nine. But on Monday Peters took to Twitter saying it's Gumbo week. Let's eight since been deleted. But see how does the Rams defense matchup with the saints offense? This time around I think they have the ability to to match out better than what we might have thought going into the season. Because if you look at the way, the Rams really concentrating on trying into eliminate Dallas from taking over in the running game in dominant sue Aaron Donald the rest of that interior. They made a conscious they're not going to run the football on the. So I do believe when people make up their mind at this. Something's not going to happen. And they have the talent to be able to do it. But it really boils down to the back end of this defense. What? Was the difference in the first meeting? The inability for the Rams Bill to get off the field and third down and inability to negate big place of the New Orleans Saints. So Marcus Peters. He concentrating on Twitter, you need to concentrate on coverage is because one reason there's several reasons why he is out of Kansas City number one is he's not dependable, right. And that's been on and off the field. You don't know what he's going to say. And he will freelance in guess in drop coverages we saw that last week's games. We saw that in the first meeting with the saints. That's one of the things about him. He is a gambler. So how Sean Payton and it will be a head game. Sean Payton, we'll talk trash on the sideline. So this will be a back and forth Marcus Peter need to concentrate on what I'm doing. Because a Mario Cooper is not the same thing as Michael Thomas. Michael Thomas being more physical and Marcus Peters wanting to play physical. That's Michael Thomas game. So be careful if if what you're trying to do. Doesn't play into the strong suit of what Michael Thomas and the saints and Sean Payton, or they will definitely run a couple double moves against Marcus Peters and try to take advantage of his aggressive. So there because you're totally right. That Peters is the ultimate boomer bus corner that his first couple years in Kansas City. He led the NFL and takeaways he burst onto the scene a rookie. But he also gave up some huge place this year. He's had less of the boom and more of the bus, but still some big place. But the other big difference in that football game is Marcus Peters was less healthy than he is now and keeps league wasn't there. And so now, you all of a sudden actually said it keeps leave is the biggest difference between the biggest I would I would expect to keep to lead to get most of the time on Michael Thomas. I know we'll talk about this later in the week. But to me keep to leave is better with a physical receiver than Marcus Peters, as I think it keeps leave that might be a better matchup, then you do worry about teddy Ginn speed Lynn who's. Going to deal with that. So there's there's there's pick how you wanna die sometimes against the saints offense. There's no great answer. But I thought coach me Jeanie and it pains me to say this made a really great point yesterday about the Rams defense, which is is it possible that indomitable sue and others were easing their way through the regular season to get to this moment..

"I think Jerry and Stephen in the Dallas office there they've made up their mind. The Dak is going to be the quarterback of the future. It becomes very important. Nick what he thinks about his future. What's more important? Does he want to try to get in the Kurt cousins type range as far as money or does? He settle for something a little bit less. So that they can put other pieces around them. I've leave that the second is the better of the options because of the inconsistency. And if he's going to reaches potential they're going to need that cap space Bill to put some other players around. So my suggestion for the Cowboys is you need to be able to enhance your stars and Bill to protect your stars number one being deck. Prescott starts with Travis Frederick and that often of line. The left tackle we need to have some heart to heart conversation is he and elite player because he's not an elite player anymore. What typically happens I need to see some of that money that he's making 'cause I'm playing him to be paying him to be an elite player, he's not elite anymore. So I looked for them to ask him to take a pay cut Zeke is going to get an extension. They need to continue to tight imposition and add more speed to the offense. If you're able to do that with the tide in more speed you help back continue to Philip as quarterback, and you help Zeke Elliott limp in his career because you take some of that burden off of him on the offense of side defensively. You know, Lawrence is a star. You franchise him. He's earned the long term contract. But what you need to do. The other stars on that defense are their inside linebackers. They need a couple big defensive tackles. They'll need to spend a lot of money on it. But they need big. So that these linebackers can run and be utilized in space for me. That's the. That's the remedy to Cowboys of how they go forward. You have to protect your stars. You have to expect them to continue to get bit better. But how do you do that you put people in front of linebackers you put those defensive tackles? Dak you help him out with other speed guys on the outside and easy Q. Elliott you remove some of that burden that him carrying a ball four hundred times. Like is that necessary going forward a month ago when the Cowboys looked position to turn their season around going into that eagles game, which was if they want it? They were going to lock up the division for all intents and purposes, I said the Cowboys might look back through hindsight if they win this game and wish they had. And the reason I said it was I thought if they won that game and won the division. It was guaranteed. Dak was getting extension this offseason. Now to Dax credit. They won that game. They won the next couple games. They are they want to of the next three. I should say they wanna play off game Dak played. I thought a very good Dak Prescott game in that game. And he's not the reason they loss. The Rams he's getting the extension. You guys know my philosophy on if you pay a quarterback franchise money, and he is not a force multiplier the enormous deficit put your team into this is where no matter whether it's twenty million or twenty eight million the money, he gets this offseason. Whatever he can do to get himself to the next level as a player he does not have to be one of the five best quarterbacks in football. But he has to be in the argument as one of the six best quarterbacks in his conference. And so that's where he's got. We know breezes there, we know Rogers, they're winces in his division, but with health questions, and so he needs to come up at least one tick. If he does that then we know what the Cowboys blueprint is. And I agree with crystal heartedly this off season even with limited draft capital tight end and interior defensive line or the two spots that I think allow might other strengths to become even bigger strike. We have this conversation all the time. If he gets a little bit better..

"He had a funny quote. He says listen, I'm just a fat kid finding the right hold or run through. But he was another Gruden cast off by the way, he was enormous early in this football game to where they didn't have to use Todd Gurley that much and they took control and the Cowboys. We just showed the light man their identity. We're going to be tough. We're going to be physical fourth in one run it, right? Adam that was an enormous play in that football game. Where the Rams got off the field and allowed them to extend that lead we talked about how the only path to victory for the Cowboys is going to be short Zeke runs and other things have to happen. It was just assume the Zeke was going to get his carries and get his yard especially this run defense. But I know you touched on what was it that really kept him from being able to be successful. You could see in the playoffs that the teams that had the by. They did a great job of self scout in themselves. What have what haven't they done? Well. What do they do? Well, and trying to come up with the game plan all the teams that had the by came up with a substantial game plan to be able to, you know, something I was not great at this and the Rams in dominant sue in particular was phenomenal in this game. And it won't be by statute. You have to watch the game. He changed the line of scrimmage. He destroyed the center and the guards and Aaron Donald when he could because they had a heavy concentration of trying to double him, so interior wise, they dominated the Cowboys the Cowboys offense of line typically, we have not had question marks about them. But you left this game no-one that they had been the physical part of the game. They had lost that to the ram. So that was the best part of the Rams have in the by Wade Phillips self scouting themselves because they don't have great linebackers. So you would think that the Cowboys we're going to run on them. They weren't because of that front took control. They took it upon themselves and said the Cowboys are not going to run on us. And that was one of the things with some of these bad. Defenses, especially run defense that we saw with the Rams and the chiefs the things that even when the Cowboys weren't playing while early in the year where most reliable about this team zeke's production and their front seven defensively are the two things. I let them down in this game. They're front seven couldn't stop the run. And couldn't get any pressure whatsoever. Golf sack zero times only hit once the entire game. We've talked about how he was the twenty eighth ranked quarterback in the league when pressured they couldn't get that pressure. They couldn't establish their line of scrimmage, and so if you told me they were going to lose this game decisively, and they did they were down fifty two scores. A lot of the game. I said Dak didn't play. Well, tech played fine. Tech played well enough to get another playoff win the rest of the team did not do what they had been relying on them to do throughout the season. All right. Let's take a break. They're coming up. How are the saints able to pull off the comeback? That's next on first. We'll get to the Cowboys future in a minute. But first krislindahl rockets, Mike Conley Garrett temple throws down the dunk Watchet. Garrett temple has carved out for himself a really nice career. And it's impressive to me. Because I didn't see this coming from him early in his career this Celtics nets. Jalen brown. Driving down the lane delivers.

"Lights must really bright in there for the retinas just to make sure that see what was the key. Do you think for the in Rams win over the Cowboys from him? There will roll philosophy. They were going to get back. It was nice Todd Gurley was healthy. But even beyond that with CJ Anderson being added to the roster. You don't think that they're going to take advantage of that Bill run on the Cowboys? We haven't seen anybody on the Cowboys like that this year and upfront. It was several teams that really transform their season by getting away from having a bad offense of line Seattle the colts and the LA Rams in the last two year. All these teams have revamped our offense of line have a different attitude. Offense line the Rams offense of line started all the games last year and started every game this season. So their overall continuity coming into this game healthy Andrew Whitworth to left tackle led by them that rushing attack was phenomenal. And when you can play that physical in a playoff game. It makes the game so much. Easier for the quarterback. We saw that in the Kansas City game. We saw that in this game where you're not reliant on the quarterback to try to lead you to win. It was an old style football that we hadn't seen all season. It was nice that the Rams were able to adopt that for this playoff win. And you mentioned we were talking about the chiefs that if you looked at told you Pat Mahomes settle on before and you said the chiefs would lose. Well, if you told me before the game Dak was going to throw for two sixty six no picks on ninety nine rating and golf is going to throw for one eighty and seventy four rating, I said all this worked out perfectly for the Cowboys. They must've been getting pressured a golf they were. No, they didn't. They didn't get to pressure to golf at all. I thought the one thing we knew was that against his bad. Rams. Rush defense. Zeke would have Dan Zeke got shut down twenty cares for forty seven yards. One big run the entire football game. And what the Rams were able to do to just amplify sees point. The Cowboys all year had allowed four guys to rush. For seventy yards. That's amazing. The Rams had two guys in the first half. Go for seventy yards. C J Anderson after the game..

But at the end of the day, we know who we we'll get the last last Saint Segel's. Marshon Lattimore climbs the ladder. Big interception in the second quarter. This we're about talk about it. This pride of the biggest play of the game. I know what happened early. But this came right after the Brees fumbled that they recovered, and this was I mean, the eagles could really put their foot on their throats. Lattimore had an outstanding game. And this got him going. Doug Peterson called a great play. Here Dade slip Zach ertz. Down the sideline you can see Nick foles feet. They were not clean. He couldn't step into the throat to build a flight in front of them. Throws it behind. Lattimore gets back into play makes a spectacular interception highpoint in the football right there. But huge play in the game. If Nick foles completes this ball. I think we got a different story lineup. And from that moment. Let's let's dive into these highlights sticking which you Brees the saints taken on red hot Nick foles and his magic carpet ride. Foles would open up the scoring in the first with a touchdown to Jordan Mathews. Eagles jump up fourteen nothing early everyone big excited, but the saints would crawl back third quarter down for breeze finds Michael Thomas in the end zone at one hundred and seventy one yards on the day.

"They ran so many plays. Because in the first half they had more first downs than the chargers had plays. And when you throw the ball forty four times, but seventeen of them are to James white when he has fifteen catches for ninety seven yards fifteen for ninety seven makes a lot of sense for running back running the ball like that. And so his production plus Sony was production. Those were all essentially rushing attempts. We'll talk about your chiefs in the second. But right now the patriots are on their way to their eighth straight AFC title game. How impressive is that? For Tom Brady after the season. He's had this year. I think it's the most impressive thing. Besides the five Super Bowls. I mean, there's nothing we've seen like this in sports. I've read about Bill Russell, I read about what he did read about John wooden. Noah 'bout the talented players, but I've never seen anything like this besides him. Having those five championships Bill to do this with the type of consistency at the age at in a salary cap free agency era is the most impressive stat that he as well, the stats that this matchup against the exact to that Chris mentioned. But the only reason those where he will happen when Russell was doing it. There were eight ten twelve teams in the entire NBA. If you made the playoffs you were in the conference finals, it just four of the eight made at the beginning of his run wooden 's wouldn't UCLA teams when they made all those final fours in a row had the winning streak. There was only sixteen teams in the tournament. Like so for the patriots to now Tom Brady and the stats going around everywhere in his seventeen full seasons has made a conference championship game thirteen times. So drew Brees this year. His completion percentage all time record Tom Brady makes a higher percentage of conference championships syndrome. Breeze completes a pass it. It is. I think thirteen conference championship appearances is as impressive as the five Super Bowls like pick. What you think the most like the five championships the eight trips the thirteen final fours, and they could add to those first two numbers again. Depending on how El do thing about is. We don't have to pick the parents show is we do have the super bowl's. Right. That's the way it's about championships. Yeah. The other numbers impressive. But if he happened to start off his career like Elway. And he had lost a lot of those. Those numbers are totally different compared to men. I also wanted five of the times. No, just the other thing of the weekend is man that by sure helps Z teams looked healthier teams looked more rested. Like the the by we set it before during the week teams with a by make the Super Bowl about forty percent of the time teams applying the wildcard around making. About six percent of the time. The patriots found their way into a by this year and made the most of there were a lot of doubters. And a lot of naysayers for Tom Brady. We'll talk about that in a little bit. You know, John even Livia I was on board too. But let's give Livia. Olivia coming up. How are the saints able to pull off the comeback? That's next. I can get to the saints win over the eagles in a second. But first chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins makes an impressive one handed catch yesterday to catch. I'm so glad that Sammy Watkins was on the and that was I've watched that report every week active inactive because now you talking about the dangerous football team Kansas City with Sammy Watkins his ability Bill to catch playing the slot. And also run some reverses man, it was great to see..

"But then really in in the thirties and forties net range where you'll see the running backs wide receivers. Like, I said, I think potential backup quarterbacks. There's a lot of those guys this year. You know, you you. Look at Daniel Jones, mel's guy, and drew lock from Missouri will Greer from West Virginia Ryan Finley from NC state. There's there's about seven or eight quarterbacks that legitimately could work their way into that. Second third round range at wide receiver. You got AJ Brown in here, you got marquees Brown from Oklahoma Paris Campbell came in at thirty two out of Ohio State. There's some other guys like decay Metcalf could workout well, and you wanna see his ability coming out of coming out of that same ole miss program. So there's there's a handful of receivers I think Noah Fant is another one he's got two tight ends. And. Let's see TJ Hawkins said he's got going to Tennessee at nineteen coming out of Iowa fan is also from Iowa he's more of a receiver Hopkinson is more of a complete player or Smith. He's got for Mel Bama going twenty seven to the Oakland, Oakland Raiders. And after that like I mentioned fantas well, so there's tight ends. There's Damian Harris and Brandon Jacobs from Alabama at the running back position, Bryce love and some other back. So I think we're gonna see a bunch of those guys in that second third round range. Mel he was called as your guy Daniel Jones from you put him to New England at twenty nine. I know you're not trying to just start a fire here. But I mean, Mike Reese, I've talked to him about it. Everybody around that team says that you know, it's it makes plenty of sense for the New England Patriots to take a quarterback with this late first round pick or certainly in the second round with no offense intended for their ageless quarterback. I mean, they did it. A few years ago with Jimmy Garoppolo Brady just refuse to age that makes sense this year again, obviously, it does to you. It just fell that way. Daniel Jones quarterback. I thought made a lot of improvement. David cut cliffs at six quarterbacks move onto the NFL at of course, bite you lie and Peyton Manning. You think about his size Brady like his arm is compact release one hundred eighty five yards rushing in one game this year against North Carolina. So then you'll Jones a pretty good athlete and Daniel, very underrated athlete and his family, very athletic. He certainly has all the skills, and I think for New England and Tom Brady and before the to win next year begins. Yeah. At some point. Yeah. And it's been a while since Jimmy Garoppolo was that second round pick years a passi-. He was taken in the second round for. Yeah. Now, we're talking about a late first round pick almost the second round pick on Daniel Jones. So at some point Tom Brady is going to retire is going to happen when he's forty five fifty. We don't know, but it's going to happen. And I think Daniel Jones in the late first round would make sense considering his his skill set. Kind of I would say Tom Brady. Like, I think they'll be some things that they look at and say boy when their sizes compact release moves better than Brady did coming out of Michigan smart kid cut cliff factor. I look dunnock Daniel Jones up in the front. I don't love them and saying easy league. He's going to be a franchise quarterback. But I think when you get to that point then you'll Jones would make a lot of sense Josh points out that it's actually been five years since the patriots. Smartly drafted a an era. Parents Tom Brady. So he's just kind of outlasting them. Todd. Tell me a little bit about what happened with Ed Oliver who still projected as a top fifteen pick mel's got him number fourteen to the Atlanta Falcons. Hey, that's not bad. Here's ten million dollars. Go play football. But this was this is a guy that we talked about as a as a top three guy going into the season. What has happened to? I'm not saying he's even going to end up at this point. Who knows what could happen during the draft process? But. Obviously, you know, it's it's dipped a little bit for for at Oliver. Yeah. I think the first thing that's important note..

"I'm looking at mel's mock draft. I mean, I'm scanning here for twenty minutes before I see W R. I don't see any RB's. But is anybody mel's got AJ Brown out of miss as his first wide receiver off the board at number twenty two overall to the Baltimore Ravens? And I'm just wonder. Does anybody have a chance to crash the party? How fast is AJ half the run. How fast is Irv half. The run is is there anybody that's on your radar. That's going to go to Indy or pro day. It's really going to boost stock because it's not like some of these teams in the top ten don't need these weapons. It's not like Josh Allen doesn't need a great weapon in buffalo, or you know, or somebody like say the New York Jets. I mean, these there's obvious weapon deficiencies here. But I just don't know if the guy this. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, there's always a guy or two that pops up. But I think what's going to happen. This year is at these offensive skill positions. Even quarterback if really want to look at it. I think there's going to be a big run on day two. I think the talent is too good in the defensive front seven. I mean, look at these defensive tackles and edged players and they're just flooding. The first round Nick boasts of Ohio State. Josh Allen Kentucky their top two quitting Williams. At three you go down the list. It's it's pretty amazing research on Gary from Michigan Cleveland thorough from from Clemson at all over from Houston. Those are all in the top fourteen. And then Chicago polite at fifteen and Brian burns at sixteen. So it makes up more than half of your first half of the first round. Now to the point. I do think you're going to start seeing in the twenties..

"Another year, you know, with a new coaching situation. Don't these all look for sale to you? Do you see one situation where he said that seems should just get out of there? Maybe it's Oakland where they just need bodies should get out of there and add up picks. Yeah. They do. I think particularly number one. Because of where that's the team is right now. In terms of the quarterback position Rosen of all the young quarterbacks in the first one probably struggle the most. But that's because a lot of had to do with the team around him coaches. Now gone Kingsbury is in the Josh Allen pick. With Kentucky to the forty-ninth with jets kind of neat that guy the forty Niners need that education. That Armstead Buckner had a great year. Thomas has emerged three guys very similar yet. Buckner is the best of that group. Now, you bring the edge guy in the compliment that group and Allen the jets need exactly that kind of player there as well. It's like Alan is a kind of the hot guy. He's the kind of guy that both those teams need. So I would think they'll have to be a little leery of obviously given up the opportunity to get your Allen by moving out of there. So I think Josh Allen kind of complicates matters lose teams just a bit. Todd going back to Kyla real quick. You know, we brought up Baker Mayfield. But you know, one thing that gets forgotten Baker Mayfield obviously came in and week three when tyrod Taylor went down and then went on to break the rookie touchdown passing record. Couldn't you see a situation for either Haskins or Cuyler like the Cleveland Browns where that team goes out and gets tyrod Taylor. They get that bridge quarterback. Whether it's a Nick foles, whether it's a teddy Bridgewater that seemed to be the trend last year, the Buffalo Bills did it with a J McCarron. He obviously got hurt. The New York Jets kept Josh mccown around for a lot of money, even Arizona. Paid Sam Bradford like people tend to do before Rosen stepped in. So doesn't that seem like that's an obvious situation. Whether it's in Jacksonville with the giants depending on what happens with Eli with Miami. I mean, there's a couple of others out there. Yeah. I think what the giants ally is your bridge, and you can you could probably play one more season with them or or portion of the season as you're developing a young quarterback if it's Swain Haskins. I think Jacksonville can't bring in enough quarterbacks. I mean, they've just got they got a scrap down. I would bring in a veteran. And I would I would try to draft one as well. And that way, you're because let's face it any of those veterans that mentioned before do you feel confident in any of them that they are a long-term answer. No. I mean flacco can't even went out his job in in Baltimore. I mean, these got I just you know, I look at it foles. Maybe there's talk of falls maybe only wanted to play one or two more years. So I think if your quarterback needy team, you've got a you got to look at it and say, all right? What's the bridge for Jacksonville? I think if bring in one of those veterans, and then also I've got to be prepared that it's not gonna work out. Maybe we'll get a full season out of the sky. But if we're gonna spend the seventh overall pick or or even move up to go get one of these quarterbacks we've got to be prepared probably to play him as well. Because we say it every year and look at look at all the first round quarterbacks to play all five of them played all of the first round quarterbacks from year ago plate it's every single year. We say oh Lamar's too far away. He's going to need time. Well, he came in and lead lead. Baltimore the playoffs. It was unconventional. It looked ugly in the playoffs, and it may not be the long-term answer, but he played and he had some success is rookie season. So I I think you're gonna plan on playing the rookie at some point. But you want to have someone there in case it's not working out or to start the season. If your quarterback is not ready immediately as a rookie, a male among these top five teams that we just mentioned as potential trade bait situations..

"Try to lay the foundation for the next dynasty wavy birthday. This is first draft now alongside NFL draft insiders milk eyebrow junior and Todd mcshay Pierce, Chris Brown. Welcome back to another draft season of first draft. There's no better place to start a first draft that where we actually have a mock to break down. No Kuyper has a fresh one out. I'm Chris sprout joined by Mel Todd mcshay as also here before we get started real quick. Go to apple podcasts. Search first draft. Subscribe rates and review. Now, it's time to rate and review this mock draft, you feel confident never never not with the first one twenty-five trades bunch of forties all kinds of things to happen between now and then just real quick just to get people. The snapshot of the top five Nick Bosa goes number one to air Zona. Josh Allen pass rusher out of Kentucky goes to the Niners. Quinton Williams goes number three to the jets, greedy. Williams. The quarterback from LSU goes number four the Oakland Raiders, Tampa Bay bucks. Get Jona Williams. A blindside pass. Protect your out of Alabama number six. This is where it gets interesting. And we'll talk about it a lot over the next few months Dwayne Haskins quarterback of Ohio State goes number six to the New York football giants Todd surely a quarterback won't get to number six with those top five picks for sale. But this makes sense. What do you make of it? Well, I think this is the fascinating part of this this draft class. I mean, we're going to be talking about this for a few months, and I think the last few years we've seen just about every quarterback taken in the first round teams are moving up to go get those guys. And so with the giants sitting at six Jacksonville at seven Denver, ten Miami at thirteen all. What's to say that we're not going to see some some movement. Again, now Haskins may not have as high a grade is some of the other quarterbacks the last few years, but there's really in my opinion, only two first round quarterbacks in Haskins and Cuyler Murray, and the need is obvious there. So yeah, you look at the first five picks, and we can't project trades. Mel, so I totally I totally get what you're doing here. But I think the question could be asked if Cuyler Murray can go thirteen to Miami. Then why couldn't you go seven to Jacksonville? So that's to me that's going to be the real fascinating part of this as we lead up to the draft. And then figuring out of Tyler Murray, and we can get into this conversation is he legitimately all in in football. I mean, that's going to be another huge question. Or is this just a ploy by by Scott Boris, his agent who's a shark trying to get more money out of the Oakland as we're going to get a lot. It's going to be a lot of information and misinformation, I think over the next couple of months with this kind of Mercer tuition. Now, I'll put this in. Ear what did cliff Kingsbury the head? Coach of the Zona cardinal say about Cuyler Murray are taking I figure the draft. If I could I know he signed up to play baseball, but he is a dominant football player. And I would take the first pick. Do you think? Now that was October. I believe lift said that a little bit. He no. Was playing to don't exactly that was the gate where they put a lot of points on the board and collar Murray did as well. But that was October Aleksei little did he know that he would be coaching Zona cardinals. And they would have the number one pick in the draft. And it'd be having the fake that statement come true. And the Josh Rosen. I'll talk about trade Rosen draft Murray, if you're Kingsbury whatever. But I think when you look at what with Todd setback collar Murray is he all in also when you talk about the Jacksonville Jaguars. We have Joe flacco, Nick, foles teddy Bridgewater. There's other options for teams are kind of ready made for now and don't want essay, wait two three.

"I'll come back to the Cowboys and Seahawks MS second first Zion. Williamson continues to defy gravity the three sixty dunk the one he gave a seven out of ten I was going to mention that. If this is a seven out of ten and in game. Three sixty with his head above the rim. Then what is it ten? The reason why because he could see his body is turned about a quarter before even takes Saul watches body. He'll be facing towards the silent. You see that? All it's only seventy six somebody do to man. I just did. He knows he knows what he's gotta do. If he wanted three's going to full three sixty face a buck, and then do Nick foles with the past two golden tainting dislike Chet. Eagles are happy. They traded for him yesterday. A lot of noise surrounding golden tape prior to this game that he hadn't been as productive that this was one of the midseason acquisition where it looked like maybe the teen trading. The player away knew something the team getting and didn't know he had two of the biggest plays including these single. Biggest play of the Game Boy Seahawks. Check out the stiff arm from Zeke and see I know you love this the Hetty play. This happened about three and a half minutes left. Easily could have gone out of bounds. Cuts back inbounds to get another forty seconds off the clock here with the Cowboys up three at the time Zeke flee degree all round game. Not only running the balls pass receiver, but one that hidden gyms when he was coming out of college was his ability to block, and you could see a couple times they ran a quarterback Zeke was one to lead blockers getting his guy on the ground. Physical game by Zeke guy wants a new contract Owen. He he earned one same game. Cowboys threatening K J right makes great. Interception in the end zone for Seattle RC. I saw you tweeting about this is this one of those sixty percent interceptions on the receiver. Notice. A quarterbacks fault quarterback had plenty of space. He wasn't getting rushed. He should've let him so he can run away from the linebacker. It also should have been passed appearance. Now, a great recovery for an interception by one good linebackers that we have playing this game. But a number things went, but it starts with the quarterback leading into space wide open. He'll right went from that line. I let's get full highlights from this game. Dallas seattle. There's Dak everyone expecting a lot out of him. Cowboys down four in the fourth deck Prescott. With a nice pass to Amari Cooper. It's a thirty four yard gain for Dak long longest pass of the day. Four plays later. Zeke runs in the one yard score Dallas up three fast-forward less than three minutes to go. This is third and fourteen. This is Dak being on mobile and everything runs for the first down. All. The way to the one next play would run it in for the score. And there it is. Jerry Jones super fired up. Cowboys pull out the twenty four twenty two win. Here is dot Prescott. After his first playoff win. This. We have so much confidence in the game and communism as we played great great Seattle team. But just as. I mean, just all about the way we the way we compete success versity thought about us. We talk about the way this guy fought on third down running it for sixteen yards to get the first down. And then set up the touchdown. I mean, what were you thinking when you saw takeoff simple ago, man? That's what it is played today. He led us at his win. I see a bunch of happy guys right there. What was the key to the Cowboys beating Seattle? I gotta say deck to run the ball in the fourth quarter. Because to me that was the when they had that third down and extremely long a lot of bad things can happen. The defense man, you're playing into their hands. It got less space to defend. They're not worried about you running the ball. They actually hope you run it. So then you kicked a field goal on fourth down. This is not a first down play brilliant. Call by them. But it was to try to get the ball for easy chip shot. If they get to easy chip shot compared to a touchdown, then Dow's could very easily lose this game that touchdown drive in converting, right?.

"But when we use the word, and we laugh when we say when we use the word magical in fulls things like what happened with Cody parkey that folds into this whatever is surrounding Nick foles and his ability to get the team to play and to win. So I do have to ask what you thought of the way Nick foles played on. What this now means moving thought this was Nick foles individually his worst game of this run. This worst name of the must win games. They've now won seven consecutive elimination games for the polls of the quarterback. This was clearly as worse game. Now. It was also clearly against the toughest defense. He's faced the only thing that'd be closely. The Vikings defense in the NFC championship game last year that Vikings defense hadn't been playing as well as of late as bears team had. I don't assign. The Cody parkey miss anything with Nick foles magic. I do. I will say the offensive line continues to play its. Football. This last month. You see the eagles secondary which had been terrible throughout the first three months of the season. I thought played an outstanding game yesterday aside from some dropped interceptions. That could have made this game a more substantial wince and play defense. And so I don't assign much to the Nick foles magic as far as how the game ended. But I I mean, they now have an opportunity to go into New Orleans a place that under with Carson Wentz. This eagles seem loss forty eight to seven in a game that we thought ended their season. It dropped them two four and six and they were written off for dead. We'll see what if it can continue next week. I believe in Santa Claus the Easter bunny and even will put out money for the tooth fairy. Mr. tickles even likes. As far as believe in. The Nick foles is on some magic carpet ride. That's what got them through Chicago. No. I'd be a fool to believe it. I've been on too many football teams. It's a team sport. And this is what happened the team supported their quarterback. He threw a number of balls. That should have gotten intercepted the interception in the red zone. He shouldn't throw that ball. Throw it out of bounds. Now, the dumb defender got a little bit on his hand. So the ball came up a little bit short. They they react because they was reading his is the young linebacker row Han wants Monroe count Smith. He reacts and jumps on one of his check downs intercepts that so when you throw to intercept, you know, magic carpet, right? You got to be supported by your team. And that's what this offense of line. Did that's what the defense did their second airing played amazing the Philadelphia linebackers play their best game of the season. So when you talk about a man, Nick foles his performance. Thank god. He had that defense. Thank god. They get that deflections last. Kick that take a little bit off that kick. So it hits the post twice. So I believe in team. And that's what the Philadelphia team. Did they supported their quarterback? I know we'll give the quarterback all the credit all week, but I'll try to bounce it. And this is where the unfairness of one game samples and single limitation plays out. Like, there is no rhyme or reason that the kick the kid missed was the one that counted. And the key made the was the one with. There was a time out like that's a that's a coin flip. There are so many things that are just absolute coin flips and this one once again, it came up heads for the eagles as it has seemingly every time during this run. I felt eagles when the wildcard matchup. They now move on to face New Orleans next weekend. Take a break coming up. What was the key to the Cowboys taken down the Seahawks? We'll talk about that next. This is first things first there's something about auctions that makes shopping so much more fun for sports fans. It probably is something to do with the competition in suspense that auctions provide. But who wants to spend time researching where their nearest auction houses? And then make the truck all the way there. I.
