Or wherever you get your podcasts. You are listening to the Dan Patrick. Show on Fox sports radio program. It's hour one on this Wednesday. Dan and the DANETTES. Dan Patrick Show. I don't know how you celebrated Cinco two mile but you probably had more fun than I did. Welcome to the show. Last night I get home. My wife goes. We're going to do a virtual cooking class. What does that mean? Well you me and molly our daughter. We're going to take part in a virtual Cinco de Mayo cooking class and I said okay. What do I need to do? And she said well you can make the corn. I said all right and then she'll make shrimp tacos. My daughter was doing the Margaritas Guacamo- La and I said all right I can I can do like I said can I drink during the virtual tour the cooking class? She said Yeah but to a minimum and I said well what's a minimum she said. Well how about one Margarita? Well how long the cooking class? Oh it shouldn't take that long. It doesn't Take Long Cook. Shrimp tacos started at five gathering. All the ingredients got to six o'clock went up on the zoom. Had All these people there we go round the room. We had to tell them who you were. And what's your what's your favorite meal. And so I of course wasn't giving honest answers. Which by wife was very disappointed. I said I was a male model. And I'm holding my my Margarita. So we finally I mean the food was great and the woman who puts on the class. A great chef but it was. It was eight thirty. We started at six. We were at age thirty. Cinco de Mayo is almost open. I said I gotTA GO I. I got a half hour here before. I'm going to be in bed. And so we went. Rogue we hit mute went rogue another batch of Margaritas and we decided to start eating and then that was my Cinco de Mayo last nine. Throw in a beer and I'm a little wobbly. Today I will admit my my daughter made some mean Margaritas there and I did it again. Guys you have to understand. You gotTA take a couple of bullets occasionally all right because this allows you to have a little bit more freedom so when my wife says now tonight for dinner it's going to be probably something pretty simple but last night we were two and a half hours in. I was the good soldier my daughter and I kept cranking up the music and my wife was saying no stuck like we were LCD soundsystem daft. Punk is playing in my house. My House last night and wife was just GonNa Stop. Stop in my daughter and then we wanted to turn out the lights and make it a dance party. And that's how I that's how I roll. You WanNa roll with me. Baby Cinco de Mayo. Yes seton because now you don't even have the built in excuse. Ghana Games on. I gotta I gotTa Watch this. I can't do that cooking. I know you'll have any of that stuff when I say I got another episode of Better Call Saul that I gotTa Watch deb. I had no escape hatch here. Yes Paul did you get any questions? Because you're the Sports Guy Dan what do you think the? Nba's coming back. I don't think anybody had any idea who I was. That's a good thing except for the chef. She she she. She's met us before and and she has a little bit. I think husband's a big met fan but I didn't get any of that which was good because I hate. When do you think they're bringing sports back here? Would you go to a game and sit in the stand right now? Yes my usual response to like. Hey we're GONNA do a say online cooking classes. What do you mean we in? Why why would I be included? I said to my wife. We don't have to do anything extra. We don't minute it's good like it's conversation you know it's fun that we're together and then you do the virtual and then and then. I don't know if I'm on or not and then I realized I am on. And then when she's asking me a question. I realize I'm not on and then I'm talking and then she can't hear me and then I have to repeat two and a half hours and then we didn't even get to make I said to my wife. No we're not doing desert. Sorry Sorry Hon you can. Because I'M GONNA go smoke a cigar and then I got an episode better call Saul and that's it and I am unscathed so what you WANNA do here with. The Salon. Show is on a really nice and fine. Okay look at mice and then you know we had to compare knives. A it just became as you marinate shrimp think about where the shrimp came from and be one with the shrimp. It was And then I gotta find all the ingredients. I don't know where these ingredients are. I know where the staples are the basics are like there's a lime zest and then there's line juice and I go. What's the difference between lime zest in lime juice here? And she goes. How can I love you but once you out of the kitchen like your durable in your annoying? Where are you trying to get? Yes I was. I was doing my damnedest saw. Does anybody celebrate those say mile? Yes I don't hear anybody ever say and I'M GONNA kill it on safety. Yes I missed her Demayo. I think today's the day we all should order. Take out from a Mexican restaurant because they all got their business yesterday. Today is a down day and you'll stay with it. Don't be a quitter say semi. That's it yes seton it see if I was a company like like pepco Biz dismal or something. I would own safes Demayo because everybody went to town yesterday with like tacos and all kinds a. You're having Margaritas and all that stuff today you wake up and you're like man that's pepped up all right. Well welcome to the program we on the air and then my wife always says you can talk about this tomorrow and I go no would i. She goes okay. Don't don't do that. Just went these are my friends. Yeah I I know. I didn't disrespect anybody I just I like to eat. I grew up in a household that at six o'clock you ate every day. Six o'clock not six zero one nine five nine six o'clock you sat down six kids in the family. If you've got there late that was it my mom my mom. This is an Italian household. Where mom will cook more. This is an Irish household. Where that's what you got and if you get there late you get a baloney sandwich or an apple and I tell them I want you know. She's Italian eat around eight. No no we don't eat around eight Hun- and almost bedtime six o'clock is when we eat. We sit down. That's because I would be in a panic. I'd have to get there at six o'clock. Sometimes I get there and five fifty eight just to get my seat and so my wife could. I mean they're very loose. When we went to Italy I remember. We sat down. We eat at ten o'clock at night and I go hunt. No can't what's wrong with eating at six o'clock it should take a couple hours to eat. We ate as fast as we could. Because we didn't want somebody taking something off our plate and you wanted to make sure you got a full meal there. That's just the way it worked in the house. We had the same meal on every night of the week so spaghetti one night. Then he'd have grilled cheese and tomato soup tuna fish casserole The best we had it was the same meal we love. Yeah Hell Yeah Loaf. That was hit some of my wife very loose with this and it's an. It's an event to have a meal with us. It was survival. Sit there and go like eating is an enjoyable to me. It was like a means to an end and I had two older brothers and I was like man. I got a box amount here. Why wait one hundred and forty eight pounds? My senior year in high school six three one forty eight. All righty welcome to the program. Gang's all here ready to go. We'll talk some college football with Paul Finebaum Metta World. Peace will stop by a little bit later on. He's got some Michael Jordan stories. Maybe we'll tell the story when he broke Mike's ribs back in early two thousand. He'll join US coming up.

It started thinking about how fun these Games could be hopefully will be and I know. Espn and NFL network. Have set aside three hours for the schedule release. We already know what the match ups were going to be prior to this. You're not sure what those dates are. But they're not a lot of drama. Here you're GONNA have one team that's going to be in prime time. That hasn't been there in a while. The Tampa Bay buccaneers now. They don't play the Patriots which would have been great but Brady and brees head to head twice Brady Aaron Rodgers. Once Patrick Mahomes in Brady wants mahomes and the chiefs face the Ravens in the Mark Jackson a dual. Mbp's and if you're a cowboy fan or you root against the cowboys you got plenty of Primetime Games in a showdown with the forty niners but a lot more detail coming up tomorrow night and it feels like fantasy football at this point but still should be a lot of fun to look forward to the Juicy Games of twenty twenty. Here's another item. We had Mike Florio on yesterday. Love talking to Mike. He's always got some interesting things and he brought up the following green bay and Aaron Rodgers. You look at the salary. Restrictions the salary impact trade Aaron Rodgers. Now it's going to be a pretty big blow to the packers with their salary cap. But can you see Aaron Rodgers? After this season playing someplace else still has a lot of money coming his way. Now you're not gonna let Aaron Rodgers go in the division but then you know what go to the bears would be the one question and they're not going to allow that to happen. This is something I did not know when Brett Farve was traded to the jets the packers had a term escalating the price to three first round picks if the packers or if the jets traded him to either the Vikings bears or lions now he went to the packers likely would have sent him to a contender elsewhere in the conference. But this is what will probably be the case with. Aaron Rodgers is maybe landing with the forty. Niners is one that he brings up. The other one is Las Vegas. Raiders says make sense to look at the AFC. If you're PA- let's just say this happens. Let's just say or just hypothetically you're not going to let him go to the NFC are you? Unless you know that you're going to get something in return and he's not gonNA come back and haunt you so afc makes a Lotta Sense. And then as a Florio says sorry. Derek Carr the raiders. That's the one thing that stands out. Jon Gruden Aaron Rodgers. Silver and Black. Vegas makes too much sense not to happen other. Afc teams that could be interested the Patriots. What about the colts what about Jaguars? What about the Broncos? What about the browns? What if Sam Darnold doesn't do enough this year to cement his grip on the job florio rights? What if the jets opt for the same kind of all in move? They made twelve years ago when the jets acquired Brett Farr. I know it's just speculation. It feels well. I've said it read Forbes said it many people have said it. I just don't think Aaron Rodgers ends his career as a green bay packer and maybe Aaron Rogers says all right. You guys have a different system here. You WanNa be running the ball. You want to be more like the niners. Maybe this is going to be mutual. I think once Jordan love to camp. You're going to know exactly what the packers plans are for Aaron Rodgers because if Jordan love comes in and they go talented but or if they say oh my God. Because that's what happened with the Kansas City chiefs. You had a pro bowl quarterback who led you to the playoffs in Ugo all in on Patrick mahomes homes got to camp. That's when according to somebody who was there said. Oh my gosh. We've got a new quarterback that was their reaction of seeing mahomes when he got to camp. I don't know if Jordan love is going to be that kind of guy. What if he gets there and you go? Oh my God what did we do? What did we do Aaron? Come here let me give you a hug. Oh No I can't hug you can make you're just you're GONNA know right away. Because that's what happens with these guys when when these guys get there in front of you know your fellow competitors. It doesn't take long before they go. Oh my God you're going to want to know how sharp is does he process you know? Those are the big every they all have tools. But how good are you in getting that information kind of disseminating the information there in real time? That's that's the most important thing you have with these these players when they don't have to think it just becomes the norm. They react in you. Have that with Aaron Rodgers. I mean the great quarterbacks are able to do that I don't know Jordan. Love can play at the next level. He's got the talent to play. But if you've Aaron Rodgers GonNa know too because he's going to see how people react to Jordan love and if he sees this and I get you know the kind of falling in love with him the way they did with me when when they brought him in with Brett Farve. It took a little bit longer because they change some things mechanics wise with Aaron Rodgers. Then they realize what they had. That's when far became expendable. That was three years. I don't think Aaron Rodgers is waiting three years here all right mclovin. You've got a poll question for me. If you get in touch with the program you can eight. Seven seven three. Dp show email address GPS. Dan Patrick Dot com twitter handle at. Dp show good morning to our radio partners and of course those watching on its youtube. Isn't it Paulie Youtube?

It go around a little bit longer now. Like my mom. Did God rest her soul? She did the best she could. But I remember that we would get down to the bottom with our ketchup and my mom would put water in it and therefore it would go around a little bit longer. Yes todd were times that tough. I know you also shared a story if it came to a Baloney Sandwich. Only one piece of block would be between the bread there. I we didn't have any money I didn't. We didn't have any money until you saw people who had money and look. She did the best. My my parents did the best they could because we didn't know we didn't have any money. But yeah we got one slice of bloating and I swear to God if I held it I could see through the slice. It was that thin you got American cheese baloney some mustard on it and an apple. That was jozy.

A Solar Frank Gore at age. Thirty seven is going to join the New York jets. I like frank core but if I'm a jets fan I don't look at this and go. Yes yeah we got Frank Gore. He's thirty seven Bhagat Lady on Belle Frank Hall of Famer. And is he gonNA help you know? Show them how to. I don't know it's kind of a weird signing their point. I actually love this for the jets and this is what the jets should have done two years ago instead breaking the Bank for Levy on bell to not help your franchise get another running back and throw in there for one year and have them get you four point two yards a carry but you have levy on bell. You should cut him well. I would have rather had Frank Gore if we're the jets were where the jets are finding Frank Gore and. You're not going to cost me anything. I'd rather have him on. Bell is is he ever going to be what was with Pittsburgh? Probably not with the jets and the jets aren't going to be winning more than what six or seven games at the most this year. I Have Frank Gore and I put him in there like he would have made more sense. You know bringing him in on bell because the jets aren't going anywhere but a thirty seven year old running back Markus. Allen was thirty seven when he had he scored a lot of touchdowns with the chiefs. He didn't have a lot of yards. Four hundred yards or something that I remember. He had like eleven touchdowns at age. Thirty seven point. I have a Frank Gore related poll question. That's more about a concept than Franco specifically which running backs career. Would you rather have frank for fifteen years? And he was a good running back every year. He averaged about eleven hundred yards a year. You know he was never the best running back in the game. Never made a few pro bowls. He was a good running back for a long long time. Or you have the career of Terrell Davis formerly of the broncos. There was a three year. Run where he was clearly the best running back in the game. He was first team all pro for three years. Then he got injured. Injured never really played football again for three years. He was the best running back in the game. And let's assume both are going to the hall of fame so they are. Whose career would you want? I would rather be Terrell Davis because I'm I'm the best at what I did. But there's so much left undone. I want a couple of super bowls and I want an MVP. I know it's what could have been as fritzy shows me. His Terrell Davis Jersey that he has on today. Thank you todd. I would go terrell Davis just because he was the best at one point Frank Gore. Here's some numbers on Frank. Gore Franco needs to more touch. I think he's got ninety eight rushing touchdown. He's got one less than Berry Sanders does he has produced nineteen thousand scrimmage yards. That's fourth all time. He trails. Jerry Rice emmitt Smith and moulder Payton he has. He has gained eleven miles from scrimmage in his career. I don't think too many guys have a career where you're talking about. Oh how many miles did you gain? Eleven miles from scrimmage in his career. Yes todd when is it? Wow that's a lot of yards. And when is it a compiler some people look at it one way so people look at it as a negative wealthy stuck? Ran Away. Able to stay healthy enough to play that long. You should have a lot of yard. I don't look at him as a compiler because at that position you don't get to stay around long enough to be a compiler and what he's done. I mean it's truly remarkable. Had both knees surgically repaired? They didn't even know he could play in the NFL. I mean truly an amazing amazing athlete but frank never had. I can't remember a highlight. Reel where I go. Oh member that run that Franken. Franks the guy who shows up every single day. He's just a blue collar worker. I'm going to show up. I'M GONNA play. I'm going to give you a thousand yards. You can ease reliable. Is You know you never hear anything? Negative about him and you know he's going lady. Bell averaged three point two yards per carry last year second lowest in the NFL. I can find any running back to do that. I mean that's where the jets went out and got lazy on Bell. And if you're ready to win I certainly understand that signing given his track record and you're bringing him into New York and what are the expectations for you and the team and neither lived up to those expectations? And you're paying him a pretty penny. Yeah mclovin I mean. This is totally a player coach situation. Like he's there to help Levy Bell Act like a pro. The jets are. I mean he. Gordon average much more than bell last year. It's not on field thing is wait. Now you're going to teach levy on bell how to be a pro. I hope so. I mean it's Kinda like when they signed Al Horford to the sixers just to get Joel. Embiid like a pro in my mind. Okay is this like we're bringing in? We're GONNA draft Jordan love to send a message to Aaron Rodgers. I got it. There's no way Frank Gore has any impact on the jets playoff run and he didn't barely that anything the last few years. But what does Frank Gore do where lady on Bell Goes? So that's how your professional all? That's which you do Riley. That's what they say freight Gore's the ultimate professional guys solemn but I can't imagine that Leon Bell like now you're going to get through to him and he's not being professional that's true. How old is lady on Bell? The Twenty eight twenty eight okay. I'm guessing he's probably set in his ways. The Frank Gore comes to town and then later on bell unless he realizes that he could be cut if he doesn't get his act together. I mean that would send the message. I don't think Frank Gore sending a message at least I can't imagine that would leave you on bell but you got Frank Gore got a quality person in their quality running back in a future hall of Famer and good luck with that the s todd. And you're not doing it for financial reasons. It's not gonNA ticket sales. He doesn't have some great personality. It's not a big name when we even know when fans are GONNA be out to go into the seats anyway so it's not a revenue boost. Wake saying Frank Gore's member teen male. Terrell Davis had fifty two hundred yards almost fifty three hundred rushing yards between nineteen ninety six in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. That is the most yards most rushing yards in any three year period by any running back in NFL history. It was and that's why I was a big spokesperson proponent. For him getting into the hall of fame that position. I don't go can't compare you to Walter Payton and Emmitt Smith and Barry Sanders. It's hard to do that at that position. And now forget about it when you know the way we use running backs. You're not GonNa have anybody who comes close to these rushing totals but Terrell Davis those three years. They were the best team he was the best player. And you want a coup- couple of super bowls. Would you want longevity? You would but at that position. You don't normally get longevity. Paul Paulin Iowa joins us. Hey Ball what's on your mind. Adp Third Time Time. Five eleven and stop counting quarantine You know everybody's GonNa Take Terrell Davis. Because he has lanes ninety percent will make it a little more interesting put. Would you have? Would you rather have frank career or CJ TO K? They both have accolades in their own regard and neither one of them having Chris Johnson or Frank Gore Chris Johnson. Thanks for the phone. Call Chris Johnson. Had the two thousand yards. He had about hit about a five year. Run Chris Johnson where he was a top flight running back but he had one monsters he did and at the time the fastest player in the League. Would I rather have that blast of dominance? I think I would take frank. Gore's I just I. I think I would take Frank Gore because I got somebody who did it for a long sustainability there is sustained goodness not greatness but goodness there if Chris Johnson won a couple of super host to go along with the two thousand yards. Then it's different. He had won incredible year. Who was the ravens running back? Who had two thousand yards in a season? Lewis? Yeah so Jamal. Lewis had two thousand yards in a season mclovin. But there's also matter style you to be Chris Johnson. Bring those eighty are runs. Everybody wants to be a Jamal. Lewis or Frank Gore I get. You WanNA highlight reel it. It'd be tough to piece together. A highlight reel of Frank Gore. I'm guessing or Jamal Lewis. Although Jamal Lewis had felt like had a few more highlights in there. But you would want that but frank gourds go into the hall of fame and Chris Johnson is not the amick. I do agree with that car. The Terrell Davis is his two super bowl rings of part. Nfl history in a way that Gore is not. If I just said let's take the Super Bowl rings just the career he those big numbers you just the fact they had the best three year rushing total in the history of the NFL Janklow. And let's not forget that every other back after Terrell Davis in that illegal Coupla Away Gary Mike Anderson you know there was a little thing going on there. Yes Shanahan had a system there with the broncos and they didn't have great offensive lineman but they had skilled tacticians at dirty thirty. I'll say yeah. There are a few defensive Lineman who had choice words for mark. Slayeth some of those guys. Tim in Wisconsin. Hey Tim what's on your mind today but as a lifelong packer fan you know. I was really looking forward to the draft And this was a chance after all these years that we kind of wasted To help rodgers now. We get a chance Help out there and I see that we draft a quarterback and I was just thinking not cut it was it was just you know. I mean we wasted all these years. That guy showed the sad that he hasn't thrown to One first round draft pick and we actually get a chance. I think he's too much of a competitor though WanNa show people in Green Bay that you know. He's still got it. I just I can't see him leaving Green Bay anytime soon and they may just be naive that you know we just want him here so much and and we need them as a quarterback. It might not be his choice. But thank you tim. I if you're changing your system. Why do you need Aaron Rodgers and that would be my thought process? It's a very expensive quarterback who's going to be handing the ball off because if you're going to have him be Jimmy Garoppolo and you know you have matlock floor. Looks up to that forty-nine Offensive System Kyle Shanahan with what he's doing that's what they want to incorporate if I had the GM who wants the quarterback and drabs him. I got a coach. Who wants more of a running style? Why do I have Aaron Rodgers trading to an FC team gets some picks? Start the rebuild with the packers because and I truly believe that the front office realized they are not a thirteen and three team like they were last year. I thought they were a ten win team at best member. When they beat the bears opening game we looked at that as maybe an upset. I mean we thought all the bears man. They're going to be. They're going to the playoffs again. Bears had the coach of the year. Matt Nagy the year before and all of a sudden. Hey packers beat the bay. Wow that's a surprise. No no one but the packers weren't a great team last year. Good team not a great team. Look at the over under Vegas. It's nine I think nine for a team that won thirteen. How often does that happen? You win thirteen. And you're you're a over under on wins is now so you reduce it by four at San a little bit about what they have there. And if I'm Aaron Rodgers he may go the. Nfl was about wide open. Give me some weapons. Let's go. Everybody wants to follow the Kansas City chiefs here. Green Bay's going OPPO. Now we WANNA get back to Lombardi's packers here where Bart Starr throws only occasionally boy dollar. That's an interesting philosophy there if you have a great defense and you want to run the football. I'm all in. If that's your philosophy you can run the football and you have a great defense. I get it well. You gotTA talented running back. I don't think your defense is Great. And you're going to try to emulate the niners and they're still better than you because they have in elite defense and they ran the ball down your throat. You couldn't stop them other than that. Enjoy the season. Take a break play next. Thanks for listening to the Dan. Patrick Show podcast be sure to catch us.

Or wherever you get your podcasts. There've been a couple of times in my career where I've seen pitchers do something with a baseball that I had not seen. Before Kerry Wood's breaking ball. I don't know how many feed it broke but it. It defied logic. I you're just watching it and you're going. It feels like an optical illusion. The Astros had no chance that day and they will admit they had no chance now. I saw Dwight Gooden. When gooden was at his peak and he had an ability to he could bring heat and he had a great break in. Bulb Steve Carlton with that slider. That was always just died in the dirt. Guys still went after Randy Johnson. Another one like that. You see some of these pictures and you go. That is not normal. When clemens was with the red sox in his prime he had that ability to just rare back bring it guys who pound the strike zone. This was different with Carey. Would he had great velocity but he also had that break involved. It was just not fair when Nolan Ryan learned how to throw a change up that was representative of his breaking ball. He was that's where he started all. There's no hitters. Would he have seven no hitters probably could have had nineteen I think had twelve one hitters. He could have had nineteen no hitters. It's that breaking ball. These guys have you know everybody was throws ninety five plus Breaking Ball. And you deliver that with the same arm slot as you do your fastball. Not Fair not fair. That's our players today. Play of the day brought to you by one. Eight hundred flowers. They have limited delivery so it's important to lock in your order. You have to do it today. One eight hundred flowers beautiful mother's Day gifts in bouquets to order go to one eight hundred flowers dot com click on the radio icon. Enter the Promo Code Patrick. Now I'm leaving out. A lot of pitcher Clayton Kershaw had that ability to where you throw that twelve to six breaking ball. Vital blue was a guy that I just admired because he just pound the strike zone. But when you add that element of the breaking ball it just changes so much because now you're sitting on fastballs which is what these guys do. Unless you're the astros in you know what's coming. It's really hard to you know go. I'm sitting fastball. And he brings the break in ball. You have no chance none whatsoever. Yeah Paulie as watching. Mlb Network the other day and they were doing a thing on different pitchers cy young seasons. And they were showing highlights a Barry Zito when he was like twenty three twenty four years old with the Oakland A.'S. And he had a fastball. There was only about eight eighty nine but he was straight and then they were down his curveball and curb was big looper and I don't know who within analysts was. He goes the way he released it and held. It was exactly the same. So the headers are they're thinking it's either GonNa be eighty eight or sixty five and a big hook and they even said like one of the toughest. Bob pitchers hit time Johan. Santana of the twins had a run where he was arguably the best pitcher in baseball. And I go back to this because Harold Reynolds was doing baseball tonight with the mothership back then and I remember saying why can't they hit his changeup. Johan Santana he said I'm going to show you the arm angle. One is his fastball. And the other is his changer. You tell me which one's which and he put them side by side and I go. Oh my God goes exactly. He goes now. Imagine being at the plate and you see that arm angle and there's no difference when guys tip their pitches that's when hitters they tee off because now you've given them a little bit of a heads up there now. I'm looking at the release point. Guys who may lower their arm slot guys who hold their gloved differently for breaking ball or fastball. So many little things you're looking for and hitters are looking for that edge and the fact that you're looking and you don't see anything with Johan Santana. He was never the same after he threw a no hitter. But man you just watched him and you just said that's that's just not fair with it really wasn't guys who blow it. That's one thing. It's the guys who you know kind of a little bit. Maddox was the same way. Maddox used to throw in in the nineties mid nineties and then he stopped throwing that heart and he made you get yourself out but he was so good at throwing the ball where you needed to really unbelievable. Gregan'S CINCINNATI JOINS US Greg. What's on your mind today? Hey Dan how you doing goodson one to ten? Hey talking about you're talking about hall of Famer about the Hall of fame. It drives me crazy because I remember my days as a younger man when Kenny Riley and Kenny Anderson Had A good run and they've gotten no recognition for that I. I think that those guys have the kind of career that deserves to be in the hall of fame and I think you probably agree coming from this area. Well I don't have to be from that area to agree with you on that. But I- Kenny Anderson was. He's a borderline hall of Famer. My opinion had he beaten Joe Montana. The niners in the super bowl he would be thought of differently. It's unfortunate but that's that's the way the voters look at this. Not Me Kenny. Anderson is a borderline hall of Famer. I thought he was an elite elite. He he was one of those guys that was completing a high percentage before it was invoked like I think he had the record for maybe twenty consecutive completions. One time I keep just Kenny. Anderson came out of Augustan College in Indiana and he was a very good quarterback maybe not great but he was very good the hall of very good and Kenny. This snake Riley was a wonderful defensive. Back Wonderful defensive back now I don't know where he I mean you'd have to have people break this down. I know that the rattler I should say Conan Kenny snake. I'm talking about stabler. But but if you're playing super bowls winning super bowls that certainly helps Bengal talk here? How about this seven? No hitters for Nolan Ryan twelve one hitters eighteen to hitters. It could easily had twenty five. No hitters Paul Finebaum will join US coming up and Metta world peace final two hours coming up. Dan Patrick Show one more item in the first hour.

Phinsider Radio: The latest on Reshad Jones and Kenyan Drake while taking a hard look at the Miami Dolphins offense and defense

"What if all you're breaking news alerts had a voice what would that sound like it would sound like today? Explain its daily news podcast from vox. I'm Sean Ramos grim every day my team, and I take one essential news story, politics, two movies sports science, and we break it down into twenty minute episodes. Perfect for your ride home subscribed today. Explain on apple podcasts or wherever you listen from Stitcher, and the vox media podcast network. Com. Any nation network. Now, your hopes at you cannot joined by co-hosts, Josh and Aaron sign. Hello everybody and welcome to Finsider radio vicious, Matt cannot join my Aaron Sutton. Josh how to the Miami Dolphins coming off a thirteen to six victory over the New York Jets. Newman a five and four on the season jets fauna three and six Miami. Dolphins sweeping the jets this season. Just the third time in the last decade believe it or not but the dolphins now headed to Green Bay. We're not going to talk about the Packers in this episode. That's coming later this week. But we have a lot to talk about in terms of the recap from the jets game. Dolphins. Offense didn't play well at all dolphins defense played lights out. Or was it? The jets offense. What kind of dive into that Brock Osweiler fifteen of twenty four four hundred thirty nine yards. Frank gore. Getting the bulk of the carries twenty carries for fifty three yards. Kenyan Drake only three carries for nine yards. Guess what? You don't have as many carries. His Kenyan Drake did Brock Osweiler. And that is just a travesty all get into the white Kenyan Drake isn't getting the carries that we think he should be getting Danny amendola leading receiver five receptions, forty seven yards. But there you have a Kenyan Drake right behind him for receptions, twenty six yards, which is again another travesty considering Drake as a running back. Kenny stills next receiver in line one reception nineteen yards. Devante Parker one reception. Eight yards this offense as an absolute mess. TJ? Mcdonagh leading tackler eight tackles one assisted Kiko Alonzo four tackles one interception, adding interceptions. Your own Baker teaches McDonald while Achim four total on a day for the dolphins. Offense a lot to discuss a lot to go over. But the biggest storyline is Rashad at Jones, and the fact that he pulled himself out of the game against the New York Jets beginning with the third defensive series of the game, which is right about when the second quarter began. I was a credentialed member of the media. Thanks to the Miami. Dolphins Dorgan ization the Finsider radio dot com. Not Finsider radio dot com. Sorry, Finsider dot com. And mean, representing Finsider radio has had several opportunities this season go down to Miami to servers a credentialed media member of the game. And we're sitting in the press box. And we notice I noticed that Reshad Jones is not on the field. I get on my binoculars. I start scanning the sideline I certainly laying down to other people in the press box that Reshad Jones is not in the game. And that was the talk for the rest of the game. After the game was what's going on with her shod Jones? One of the reporters went to the dolphins PR team and asked as earning official injury update. Never shod. And they said, no, there's no in injury nothing. We don't have anything on it. We don't know. What's going on basically were trying to figure it out? Everyone at home was trying to figure out the CBS broadcast was saying that it was confirming that it was not injury related that he was pulled out of the game. Some are speculating bench summer speculating injury. I was scanning the silent with my binoculars looking at the interaction between Reshad Jones, and the coaches and the players I I noticed her shot talking head coach, Shawn Jefferson animated discussion there he then sat on the bench. Matt Burke came over they had a professional yet animated discussion. Nothing confrontational nothing. Crazy. No screaming. No yelling. Just Manson, man. Talking is seemed to end pretty well. Matt Burke, patted him on the shoulder pads. And then Matt Burke went on his way from there. Several players were talking over shot. Joe miss on the sideline. Andre branch Cameron wake and several others. And we're also trying to figure out what's going on. Yes. Some semi animated discussions happening. On Reshad Jones was talking. But here's the thing for Shaw Jones, wasn't pouting. He wasn't sitting in a corner by himself. He was always sitting with the defense whenever they came off the field to review what just happened during all the interceptions. He was the first one over to congratulate them at the game sealing interception. Sean Jones is all smiles on the sideline. I had my eyes on him the entire time. After the game we go down to the locker room. So when when your credential member of the media after the game it was over or once the game ends actually even before the game has beginnings and everyone starts rushing to the elevators because that's when it's time to go down. So you try to get into the first or second elevator. You get down there. You wait for the dolphins to open up the locker room for access. But here's the thing. While the locker room is open Adam gazes having his press conference at the same time. So you got to choose between the press conference with Adam gays or to stay in a lock them. What the players usually by. Then once you start hearing from the quarterback and Cameron wake who they bring to the podium every week. And you're able to get into the press conference room, listen to those guys speak, but for Adam gays, you got to choose either. Or so as I'm in a locker room, Abe's, we can get the transcript strips from gays afterwards. So as the locker room, talk and players a few other reporters are in the base press conference, obviously asking him about Reshad Jones. And that's all we got were before we started interviewing players before they came back from the shower that Reshad Jones pulled himself out of the game. So we knew right away that was going to be the topic that we were going to ask everybody all the reporters. We're all waiting for Rashaad Jones or shards was nowhere to be found. Teaching. Mcdonagh comes out of your shower gets dressed flooded. His locker is flooded questions. Coming abound about teaching McDonald's play. Yes. But then reverts to the shod Jones and his answer was I don't really know. What happens? They just knew he was out of the game. Jerome Baker same thing, except that when I asked him about Reshad Jones, he said that Russia Jones wouldn't pull himself out for no reason at all the he's a gamer. He's a. Player if he wants to play in the game he's going to play in the game. And he's just not going to pull himself out of the game. For no reason at all s about his post game press conference, basically said any conversations he had with Rashaad Jones with stay between him and Rashad. So the mystery continued to thicken we went back up to the top of the press box. We try to keep sorting out the pieces and then later on in the night. We started getting more and more David. Hi, tweeting out and reporting in his article that you know, Rashaad Jones wasn't always the greatest professional has been freelancing the past few weeks was planned to come out of the game at certain points. This part of the rotation Ming effects Patrick did confirm to locker room that he studied all the positions in the backfield. And basically his brain was fried on Friday from studying so called man's and everything else. So that leads us into Monday's press conference with Adam gates when he basically inferred that it was Matt Burks faults, or at least part of it that Reshad Jones was so upset. Gay said that Jones came up to his office late Sunday night and had a man-to-man talk with him and gay said he learned a few things it seems to imply that there are several things leading up during the week. The Reshad Jones is not happy about the Adam gates was unaware of an all came to a boil on Sunday. So that's where we stand right now. I've been trying to piece the puzzle together. I've been trying to sort everything out. And it's all led me to the conclusion that Matt Burke is on the hot seat. And what happens this weekend will go a long way to determining his future in Miami. And what happens even in his meeting with gays on Monday and Tuesday. We'll go a long way to determining his future in Miami. After the bye week. And you read it all you saw it all live. You saw. What happens you've been getting thoughts and reactions on Twitter? So we'll start with you. Your whole thoughts on this Reshad Jones situation. It's peculiar, and you think that the dolphins will probably try to keep this story in house as much as possible. But with something like this with one of the leaders on defense, one of the most tenured players on this team going through this with the coach. As as many weird things has happened to the dolphin sece's. Kind of a unique situation to me now as someone who, but it has with the coach when I played college basketball, and it was a very debilitating experience to have that kind of violation of trust with somebody on a team that's supposed to have your back. And yeah communication is a really big deal. So if Burke is communicating things in a disrespectful way to a veteran like Reshad Jones. Yeah. Those things can be kind of taken out. They can kind of they can kind of build like a snowball over time. So I'm hoping that this is something that two men can score away and put this behind and the story that I don't expect to go away anytime soon, I think like I said we're going to try to keep details and houses much as possible. But I wouldn't be surprised to see some things leak out just to see. Where where things went wrong here in Matthew, if you're correct here, and you're seeing that things are kind of airing on the side of Reshad and him taken himself out, which is such kind of a bizarre action for a player to do in game. If he ends up being right? What was it? The Burke said, or what was the communication style was at Stowe corrosive that could cause Rashad to take himself out of the game. I think that's what we have to get to the root to because if we're communicating in a way, that's denigrating some of the most accomplished people on this team than yeah. The we need to kind of look at ourselves and see what's going on there. Yeah. And if there was ever played on this roster that you would you know would be the last person you would think you would take himself out of game. It'd be Reshad Jones. And I don't know if you guys listen to gates his press conference today, but he backtracked from what he said yesterday. I think he went out and said, you know, he took himself out of the game. And it wasn't injury related. Then today he wouldn't rule out. An injury said him in Reseda conversation is gonna leave it internally. So it it's baffling what happened and you wonder what was said on the sideline. Let cannot said he saw a confrontation, but it wasn't anything too severe in Jones to take himself out of game. After only playing ten snaps. I mean, it was right after that Kiko Alonzo interception where Kikuko lit up on the Ceylon. And there was a video going around Twitter where Rashad is kind of looks at it and just walks away. And I mean, I don't know that's not the Reshad Jones that I know I would at least think he'd go out there and try to defend his teammates. I'm say, you don't know what it is. It has to be underlining issue and for the dolphins to take Rashaad Jones out of the game in favour. Mick fitzpatrick. I mean, we all wanted to see making. More snaps but in favor of Shah Jones. I don't think any of us all that. Come when we did think T J McDonald be the odd man out. You would have liked to see mink at free safety more so than strong safety but teaching mcdonagh had a good game. So you can't really say it was a bad decision. But it all comes down to whether or not this defense is that much better without shot in the lineup. Or if it was just because the jets are terrible. So a lot of these things are gonna come out in the next few days. We're gonna see how the dolphins perform against a good Green Bay team pissed off Green Bay team. I mean, they're what three four and woollen their seasons hanging on by threat and the dolphins he'd go to lambo and just put an end to their their hopes and dreams, but it's going to be interesting to see how things turn out and you got to tip your hat to the effort because he had ten days to prepare for the jets. He attendees to fix that defense and the run defense was much improved. An entire secondary much improved pass rush was air. I mean, they won on all aspects that game, and he got tip your hat to map Burke. Even if it came at the cost of Reshad Jones on this show. We talked about off the air before the trade deadline. Our trade deadline special show son, actually pose the question to US House. And again, it was off the air not recording at the time. What if the dolphins traded Reshad Jones and how it's you. And I both at the same time said absolutely not go away. What are you smoking? And then we put it on Twitter for some reaction. But for me house. I know you stay to your firm. No. And we were texting afterwards when we hung up with each other to and stop recording. I started coming around a little bit. I started seeing signs point of view on this. If you get good trade compensation for it. If you think that his contract is going to be crazy. The next few years if you think he's not going to be here past two years from now trade him see what you can get. And you see somebody like what happened on Sunday versa jets? And then you start thinking. Well, damn why didn't the dolphins try to trade him? Maybe they did. Maybe they didn't just couldn't get any good offers out there for him. Maybe they didn't. But things like this. Make you start. At wondering. But then Adam gates comes out on Monday and says, well, it's not really he didn't say this directly. But indirectly. It's not really Reshad Jones fault. It's Matt Burks fall. And then you're like, okay. So what's going on here? So we're still trying to piece the puzzle together. We have a good idea worth as headed. Just make sure you stay tuned to the fence, outer dot com and our Twitter feeds for more information. The next few days coordinator speak on Thursdays during the week. So we'll find out what MAC Burke has to say. And then of course, Adam gates speaks every day except Saturday which is before the game. So stay tuned for more information on that. But as you alluded to how it's and sign the defense played well. On Sunday versa. Jets and sign I'm going to toss this to you. I, but before we get there, you know, Sam darnold foreigners substance. Isaiah crowell. Health to forty nine yards on thirteen carries a lashing McGuire held to thirty yards on seven carries. There is you know, I believe less than two hundred passing yards for the jets. It was just a disaster day for the jets offense, which has not been good the past few weeks. But the dolphins defense hasn't been great either. So what was this force happening? Was it just a thing that was coming along where jets offenses terrible which made a dolphins defense. Look good or do the dolphins defense really clean up their stuff and make the jets offense look much worse than it actually is son. Go ahead. I was just going to throw out before we went to the overall defense just kinda mix in berry Jackson's article about Rashaad and something that I wasn't aware of at this time that and if you take this article at face value, then you're realizing that Reshad Jones is coming late to meetings going off script with with play calls something analogous to what Dhamma consumer was doing something that wore out of favor with the coaching staff. So we again a lot of details going to emerge on the story. I don't think the story is gonna go away anytime soon. But when you're looking at the overall defense and just this game in general. This really reminded me the titans game week one where it was a defensively controlled game. By both teams that the dolphins were just lucky enough to make a few plays off of the turnovers that we got one obviously directly led to a touchdown. Another one of the field goals that we got was off of Sam darnold four interceptions. So I. I think it was a combination of both. I really do think that we had a better plan for this game. And I think our players played. Well, I think Kiko played well again and the pick that he played I want to make sure I give him some credit because on the past. I've been pretty hard on Kiko and terms of plays that happened behind him. I really feel comfortable with Kiko with the place that happened and front of him where he's able to kind of use his eyes and diagnose things a little bit better when he was playing with plays behind them. I felt like things got a little out of hand for him. But this play that the the first pick that we got off Sam darnold Kiko, you know, they're driving. They're getting ready to score some points Kiko makes a big play there, and kinda shifts the trajectory that came so wanna make sure I give him some credit there. But I think it was a combination when we talked to our gangrene nation guy last week we had talked about just the lack of separation that the jets wide receivers were able to get versus Chicago Bears. And you saw that same story. Play out. It gets dolphins. Granted they are a little bit healthier at the wide receiver position. They did have Robbie Andersen. Back for that game. And who has made some plays against us in the past. But we were able to have a nice interplay with that pass rush and the and the coverage and when those two things are clicking. It's it's a really nice thing. Because and maybe the jets is the antidote for our pass rushing. Lack there. Just because two of our better pass rushing games have been against the jet. Senate just seem like we were pretty disciplined with our pass rushing angles. We weren't creating a stereotypical pocket. A lot we were doing some twists and stunts. We are bringing guys from different places. So I felt like we had a really good pass rush design. And then the the guy is on the secondary were doing their job despite Reshad not being out there. What you saw was making T T J McDonald as down as we've been on him the last few weeks. I thought he played a really good game the Sunday. So you saw save in play. Well, he saw by McCain make a few plays. We probably left another two or three interceptions on the field. Despite the fact that we got four there was a coupla opportunities to get a couple more there. So just making Sam darnold uncomfortable out there and one thing that I did like against Chicago when the jets played them Sam darnold as lack of separation that has why? Receivers would get I thought he moved around in the pocket pretty well. And against the dolphins on Sunday. I think we just made him consistently uncomfortable. And we dominated the trenches. And you see what happens when you get good trench play. You know, we'll get to the offense later. So it's kind of a vice versa affect there are trenches were not good on offense. But on defense four sacks four interceptions. It's really hard to complain about. The defense did. Yeah. And you're not going to know whether it was a bad jets team. Or if it was just, you know, a much improved dolphin's defense Sam darnold. He is a rookie quarterback. But he showed those glimpses of being, you know, the future in the NFL and the dolphins went out there. And he was just completely lost. He threw foreigner sections. You gotta tip your hat off to linebackers because that's been our he'll for couple of seasons their tear. They've been terrible or just very not good in coverage. And I mean Kiko Alonzo had a nice pick Jerome Baker had that pick six. I mean, both replays plays where they just they were in the right place at the right time. And sure the Kiko interception was just well time by him drone Baker. It looked like it was a little bit underthrown by Sam darnold, but nonetheless, those guys were in the right spot. And they were you know, they were shut down in coverage in Racal McMillan looks good against Iran. I mean, he's starting to come along. And then you got to pass rush. Something that's been nonexistent over the first few weeks of the season can wake at two sacks Akeem Spence had two sacks. I mean, it just seemed like the entire defense star. Click and as much as you don't wanna see Reshad Jones sitting out or take himself out of a game. T J McDonald play great. And I mean, I've been hard on T J McDonald. I always make fun of him and say that he's, you know, ally billion coverage as in my opinion, Reshad Jones is I think make Fitzpatrick's the best coverage safety on the team. And you saw a little bit of that this past Sunday. But TJ McDonald went out there and took care of business. So you kind of see you know, if Miami does move on from Shaw Jones, like Sutton product last week is kind of just thrown out there. I've looked it up you set to make about seventeen million next year that's his salary. So I mean, that's a lot of money for a guy who you know, you don't know why took himself out a game. But he's still did in. I mean, he's a leader of this ball ball team is some you don't wanna see. So who knows what the dolphins will do with him moving forward. But teaching mcdonagh look good Minka. Look good exuding. Howard was shut down by McCain started come back around. Not sure if they ever came out. So it was wrong with Robert Quinn. Did he come back in that game? I'm not really sure. Because last I saw he was hurt on the field. It was a pretty big blow to that dolphins pass rush. So overall, I think it's going to be more that the jets are not very good and the dolphins, you know, they made some some fixes in those ten days they had to pull things back together. But against an Rogers next weekend. I mean, I don't know how they're going to go out there and have the same kind of success because he's mad Aaron Rodgers is upset that entire Packers team is upset and they're going to lambo it it could be a bloodbath. You hope the dolphins go out there and do what they did this week. But I just don't see it happening. Robert Quinn did come back into the game. And I had my eyes on him during that last drive where Sam darnold was trying to tie the game up and his pass. Rush was absolutely ferocious on that. Last drive. Dude motor. It would not stop. He was just moving guys back disrupting the pocket and played a role in Sam darnold throwing the interception of he was flushed away from the bucket. So Robert Quinn had a good game yesterday. Cameron wake had a great game. Well defense as a whole had a very good game. But like as everyone saying, even adding gaze said Aaron Rodgers is not the same dude as Sam darnold towards Sam darnold is not the same duties Aaron Rodgers over what you wanna look at it. The dolphins. We'll have their hands full this coming Sunday at Lambeau Field. Let's switch to the other side of the ball. Let's go to the offense. But I wanna save the Kenyan Drake talk for the in our view segment. I want to dive into that. And kind of really just get our three opinions on then we could have done our view segment with Rashaad Jones or Kenyan Drake. But it seems the Reshad Jones issue will be resolved this week. It doesn't seem like the Kenyan Drake issues going to resolve anytime soon. So we're gonna say that for the end of the show offense has a whole again struggling the rain towards the bottom of the league in every major offense of Pata. Gory. Brock Osweiler has regressed to the mean, the dolphins receivers are not showing up there inconsistent. Kenny stills limited because of the. Injury looked right in pre-game warms watching run on his roots. While ESPN was reporting that he was going to be out. I'm sitting in the press box with Lisa Johnson of Archer football. And we're saying there's no way this dude is going to be out for the game. He is running his roots. Nice and crisp on the field. Sure. Enough. He was ruled active and played in the game. Devante Parker after having a huge game against the Texas where the dolphins said they specifically game plans for him. Didn't show up really one reception. Eight yard Shaquille. Grant didn't get a lot of run. Denia Madala your leading receiver Denia McCullough's possession receiver. Just like Jarvis Landry is not going to move your offense down the field down the field down the field. Mike ezekie, absent nickel Leary. Absent Brock Osweiler missing a wide open. Danny amendola for easy. Touchdown. This offense supposedly Adam gazes baby supposedly Adam gays the offensive mastermind. Don't know what's going on the offense was actually better under Joe Philbin than it is under Adam gates. So what I want to turn this question into. And this discussion about the offense is is it because Adam gazes being held back by the quarterback. And he just tailoring the offense to what they can. And can't do which I think may be the case or is Adam gays really not an offense and mastermind and pay in manning was the guy who made him look so good in Denver. And I know we all talked about it before on this show in terms of Adam gates, giving a play calling duties than I am still a firm believer that he should he goes over to Dowell loggains, even though Dowell loggains got a bad rapid Chicago. I think with Adam gates having inputs into both offense and defense will create a more balanced team moving forward. How's your thoughts on the offense as a whole remembering the receiving Kenyan Drake for the end of the show? They've been they've been terrible. I mean, you've wrote in Adam gates to be this quarterback whisper that you hear so much about a guy who can at least run a competent offense. And it just hasn't showed up. I mean his in game game planning has been atrocious. The first few plays of a game each and every week have been terrible. So it's hard to say whether or not he's trying to do too much on the offense of side of the football. Or maybe is trying to get his nose in with the defense in the special teams. And maybe that's why the offense is struggling. But I mean, you got Brock Osweiler out there. And we've said if before I mean, he's a he's done a pretty darn good job. I mean, no one expects a dolphins to be where they're at right now. And I mean, you gotta tip your hat to him for going out there limiting mistakes and run the offense away it should be. But it's just frustrating to see how an offensive guru a guy that you brought in here to beat. You know, Stephen Ross around a young Shula will he he's absolutely not a young show and his play calling in key situations. Personnel decisions. I mean, we'll talk about later, but it's just head-scratching. And you just don't know what it is. You don't know if it's just, you know, he's the first time head coaching does seem to have this ego thing to him. You know, he he has his guys who maybe don't agree with him. So he ships them off elsewhere despite them being star players, and it's just Adam gates. It's just who he is. He's it's his personality. And it's what the dolphins got when a when they decided to bring him in his head coach. But overall this offense needs do a lot better. If this team wants to be in the playoff hunt towards the end of the season. I think the dolphins would be much better off right now tannehill could get healthy. But I know report came out today. Still not looking very good. I mean, they're starting to say now that maybe even after the bye it's still in question. Whether or not he's gonna be ready. So it's it's frustrating. You have a year where you just head. Jay Cutler now year Brock Osweiler as your your quarterback. And somehow the dolphins are still five and four defense steps up when you all fence his terrible earlier in the year when the offense was lights out. And you know, they had all this creative play against Oakland. The defense was nowhere to be found. I mean, they just can't get on the same page in both sides of the football. All play. Well, I mean, I know engaged his press conference today he came out and said that he's going to have more of a say in the defense, and he's going to be more in that room. So you don't know of him getting away from that may be given a guy like Loggins a little bit more control. Maybe that will be better off moving forward. But I think they gotta go out there and the guy do something against Green Bay. You gotta see creative team more that Kaelin Balaj wildcat. I mean, you just gotta do things to throw them off because Green Bay despite what the record is there. One of the better teams have football on the dolphins. They can win that game. I mean, the head of the by six and four that's a lot different than being five and five. So I think I think going out there in lambo in a lease being competitive is all you can ask for from this offense, go out there and establish run. How that receiving core? Like you said it's banged up offensive lineman. We're waiting now for John James and Laremy Tunsil. Tune the better tackles and football to find out what their injury status is. I mean, it's just one injury after another. It's it's hard to say. I mean, I'm sitting here saying all these things about it. I'm guessing you look at all the injuries. That he's had to overcome in. It's starting to make me backpedal bit because what head coach in the NFL can battle through those different types of injuries. I mean, Josh sitting earlier near Kilgore, you're starting center the guards the tackles in now two games. I mean, many teams would just fold in dolphins right now are five and four. So I think you gotta look at that. As a you know, a glass half full kind of guy and kind of see no dolphins. They're still in this despite all the odds against them. So I think it's a little bit of both got engaged him to do someone's playcalling become more creative like we've seen and just overall get that team back on track. Because after the Green Bay game they got that by and that's going to be crucial for the end of the season. How to mention just the inability to get complete interdependent football team on a Sunday. We'll have games where the offense clicks, the defense doesn't. We'll have games for the defense. Clicks, the offense doesn't what games where neither one click and we've seen that play out. But we haven't seen a game. Where really all phases all three phases. Offense defense special teams working in combo with each other as terrible as the jets offense was on Sunday. They still had four point four yards per play. And we had just a hair over three. So our offense was pretty anemic. I don't think you can ignore. What's going on the offensive line? You kind of alluded to it house with Tunsil and James going out going out at different points of the game. But yeah, having Zack stare up who didn't have his hair up because he wasn't ready to play. He was low bit behind. Ted Larsen continues to play some. Par football were getting it was it was kind of opposite. Where the dolphins were able to get to the jets on the edge. The jets were able to penetrate penetrate in the middle and really expose our lack of guard play. And then once stay up came in. They were just kind of a grinding out sacks against him. He wasn't ready for anything. After a first move. He had no countermove ability. So all they did was was make one move may counter move, and they were at Brock Osweiler. So the offense was poor. We've talked about case in the play calling and stuff, you know. It's it's kinda hard to separate those variables in a game. Like this with so many different players playing. It's inconsistently on offense. It's one of those games where you wonder what is it that we could draw up and have it be effective? What I think was clear as that. The jets came in coming in wanting to make Miami one dimensional which they. Did we were very poor rushing? The ball. We weren't able to get anything going. No, we'll get to the Drake gore thing here in a minute. But it just seemed like we were kind of trying to force a square into a round hole and just couldn't get creative early enough. We mentioned the the Kaelin Bala JR. In the wildcat. And he had a good play in it up. Unfortunately, getting called back due to a penalty. But it looked like we did have some wrinkles there with that. We wanted to bring out do we just foreign able to time it up without making a penalty. So it looked like there was a at least some attempts to have a creative spark in that game plan there throughout the game. And just kind of adjusting to what the jets were showing us. But the jets came out heavy at the line of scripture, and they're saying, hey, Brock Osweiler beat us. And it almost worked for them. Now, I think where it's really limiting the playbook, and what's. Showing to be true over time as at Brock really does have a of tough time getting the ball down the field. His deep passes seemed to go way over the players heads more often than not that to me means that he's scared to throw the ball down the field. Because if you're throwing up that far in advance are really scared to make an interception. You just have to give your players chance to make a play on those balls. And it's not like they're just out of the outstretched hands of the wide receivers. They are sometimes five to ten yards beyond were the wide receivers route is going so you just you have to have better downfield production or teams are going to start teeing off on the east and west west coast, principles tour sort of things, and that's what you're seeing teams do is creeping up daring us to to pass the ball deep, and we're does not able to do it. No for our segment in our view. And for those who have not been really listening to the podcast for those tuning in recently. The in our view segment is really just a deep dive thoughts, and what we would do in this situation of whatever the topic may be and this week segment is going to feature Kenyan Drake and Frank gore and Adam gates ever since the Cincinnati Bengals game has been featuring gore as the main back with Drake coming into spell him. And you be basically the back out of the coming out to receive the passes. Great concept in theory, poor execution at least I think, and there's been a lot of back and forth on social media on articles all the reporters are talking about it. Adam gays continues to defend it in his press conference on Monday. He was asked again about the. Wide. Discrepancy of carries between gore and Drake gore. Getting twenty Drake getting three and why not happened and gaze said point Blake. Listen, we want to get Drake the ball more. But when we wanted to one is number was called the jets had the ideal coverage for it. So we have to check out of it and go somewhere else. When they wanted to get the ball on Drake's hands as a catcher, the jets again, had ideal coverage Andrea, and basically took him out of the game gay said that Drake understands this and is on board with the team's plan going forward and has been Frank gore. Meanwhile, is ageless thirty five years old. According to. He is an overall grade of seventy nine point eight this rink seventh. Among all running backs through nine weeks against the jets. Frank at fifty three yards rushing. Forty four of them came after contact for the season three hundred three of course. Four hundred thirty eight rushing yards have come after contact with a sixty nine percent. While Kenyan Drake has racked up. Fifty seven percent of his rushing yards after contact. So when you look at it in a vacuum like that is those stats Frank Gore's, obviously, the better running back. Frank gore. Thirty five years old one hundred four carries for four hundred thirty eight yards four point two yards per carry. You look at a guy like David Johnson. Twenty six years old one hundred twenty two carries for three hundred ninety four yards three point two yards per carry again. Frank gore ageless, Adam gates a few weeks ago said the reason why he likes scores because gore always seems to get positive yardage. And while he understands that Drake and hit a home run with that possibility. Also comes a big risk of losing yards. Because Drake does try to do. Too much at times. And tries to break it open. Frank gore on the other hand sees the whole crashes the whole and guess what he can and the dolphins are able to get positive yardage. Indeed. Almost every ten the Frank gore touches the ball he's getting three or four yards. And then it seems to falter with the quarterback position finding it open receiver or just a coverage being too tight on the receivers because they cannot get open. So you look at those stats you look at guesses explanation of and you're like, okay, I get it. But then you look at the often struggling so bad, and you're trying to say, well, how can we spoke this up prior to the game where Albert Wilson got hurt against the lions. You would say get it in Albert Wilson's hands. Make something happen that little spark. Right. It's almost like when coaches are stubborn to replace it starting quarterback. And when they do replace your starting quarterback that team gets a spark while that spark may not last over the next few games because everyone regresses to the mean eventually it may provide enough of a sparked for the offense. They got their wheels back on track. So to speak. So for me, if I'm head coach, Adam gays, and I'm looking at do something different. And even though we know gays probably won't be doing anything different. It's still tough for me. Because I see where he is coming from. But I also see the other side where you're trying to make something happen. I think it could hurt because I think the dolphins gained something like or only ran twelve plays in the second half or fourth quarter. Whatever it what it what it was. It was absolutely dreadful. I think the last three or four drives us three and outs. So it can't be cannot be any worse at all. I like to see Drake be the featured back starting Frank gore. Coming into spell him and Frank gore being short yardage guy. Three or four yards one yard to yards. Where Drake is coming out of the backfield on first and second down receiving rushing house. If you're out of gays if you're looking to make changes, what's your approach to this? This was kind of so upset after that game. I mean, the dolphins one. Yes. But the reason I was most upset is because you have a guy who's thirty five years old. Yes. He's been. Planning a hell of a season. He's done well for Miami. And he's kind of that change of pace back to a Drake is but twenty carries two three. That's just that's just an excusable and I get Adam gates came out. And you know, he said some of those plays that were designed for him to carry the football Kenyan Drake. It just wasn't there. Like you said, and they're trying to get them more involved in the passing game. I know is trying to take on that role left behind by our Wilson a little bit. But at the end of the Kenyan Drake is the most explosive player in that backfield. He might be the most explosive player own that all fence right now and to just give him seven touches and a game. I mean, that's that's an excusable in it all came in the first half. So I mean in that entire second half. Kenyan Drake did not touch football. And I get that. He was in there and help them with pass protection. I get that Frank. Or you know, he's the guy gets the positive yardage every time. But at the end, he was still only averaging two point seven yards per carry. So you had a guy you gave twenty carries to who. Only averaging two point seven yards in a game where you're all fence scored zero touchdowns. So something wasn't working there and for him to not sit there, and you know. Let's let's give Kenyan Drake a chance. Let's get him on the outside. Let him be speeded it to the outside. Get beat some of those defenders to the edge and uses legs use his speed to make a play. They just completely abandoned that they didn't give them the opportunities. And for me. That's it's frustrating. I was j guy when he was shipped away. I became a Kenyan Drake guy. And I do think that the offense goes through the run game. And I know the offensive line being banged up kind of skewed that a little bit. But to to give Frank or all those carries. I mean up until this point they were doing pretty well. I mean, they were both kind of getting the same amount. He was right. He was doing what he said he would do in kind of split down the middle. But I mean seven touches for Kenyan Drake Twenty-four-year-old Kenyan Drake. Again prior best player on offense. That's the reason. Dolphins offense didn't score touchdown in my opinion. And if they wanna Cav success against Green Bay or any of the teams on the remaining schedule, they need to get him more involved because there's just no reason to have a player with that skill set in that town just ride in the pine because you know. Francorchamps does everything that you asked him he's at vet. They've just doesn't age, and he's, you know, the blue collar guy the guy who you just want every player to evolve into, but he he's not the same Frank where he once was and he's going to go down as one of the greatest running backs in NFL history. But in two thousand eighteen Kenyan Drake, the better running back in my opinion. And you gotta find a way to give him the football seven touches. That's the reason dolphins zero touchdowns, and they got to do something about that. If they want to, you know, make playoff push late in the year. Yeah. This is a tricky phenomenon figure out because we really noticed the discrepancy and touches in the Cincinnati game. And ironically enough that was a game that can in Drake was targeted like ten fifteen times in the passing game. So I really do think what the plan was was to have can in Drake emerge as a pass catcher this year. And we've seen it in a few games. But in this game, I believe he had a four five catches and was targeted about nine times in the passing game. So in a game where the jets came and really tried to make us one dimensional enforce us to pass the ball. It's not terrible from game. Planning perspective to have Kenyan Drake with a depleted wide receiver. Coa really try to spruce things up there. The seven to one ratio and rushing attempts doesn't make much sense. It really doesn't. I wanted to throw a question out to you guys. And maybe this is just me. A crazy jaded cynical dolphins fan. But when you look at two thousand seventeen on the way Kenyan Drake emerge in the last part of the year. Arguably one of the best running backs in football from a production standpoint. And just a highlight reel standpoint as well. I mean, the guy was the real deal. Do you think there's any credibility any possibility that the dolphins coaching staff came into this year not really wanting to fully unveil Kenyan Drake until towards the end of the season. I mean, I think as a possibility you you mentioned he was one of the best running backs in football. If not the best from statistical standpoint towards the end the last season. So I mean, Adam gazes done dumber things. Right. I mean, it's if they meant to have success like they've been I mean, is it really that foolish to think that a Kenyan Drake healthy in the last, you know, four to six games or even after the bye when defenses are kind of worn down and injured. I mean, he'd go out there and. Do what you would expect him to have done last season at the same time. So I mean, it's it's not crazy. But to really dislike thinking of Kenyan Drake that the first half of the season really trying to get him into Alvin Kamara a true pass catching type running back role and with that focused towards the the first half of the season. And then with the understanding like, hey, we're gonna kinda grind Frank gore. The first half of the year, and then he's old. So hopefully, we're going to have this young buck really stop up towards the final half of the season. And really take over the running game. Now remains to be seen and some astute. People have been watching the all twenty two been watching the tape and noticing that can enjoy doesn't always take. What's there? So it might be a little bit of both things that might be a little bit. Hey, let's keep Kenyan Drake fresh till towards the end of the season. We're going to kind of make a playoff run, but it's also a Frank Gorda vet and he's got. Great vision that's been one of his things throughout his career. Frank Gore's, always had great vision. He's able to get those six to ten yard chunks for his team. So possibly can in Drake is behind on that front because he is still looking for the home run ball. But I didn't want to ignore the possibility of us kind of shelving him a little bit more from a rush attempt standpoint. I'm not ignoring the fact that he's been heavily involved in the passing game. But limiting some of the Carey's at least in the first half of the season to make sure that he's fresh because we've seen what a fresh can Drake can do at the end of the season. This conversation will not stop. It will go on the next few weeks perhaps the rest of the season. The dolphins. Offense was thriving. There'd be no talk about this. But the fact is the dolphins offense is not thriving not one bit. So there is a talk about let's try to change things up. But try to spike it up. Let's try to get Kenyan Drake. A playmaker of all. Because it seems like every. He touches the ball in space in whatever he seems to make a good play. Sometimes a game changing play. We'll see what they do moving forward against the Packers. Yes. The jets defense is good. Yes. It's division rival. So the games are always tougher, but we member also the dolphins will be going into the month of December soon and with that comes whether that's more suitable for running the football. They don't have many cold weather games. They got the Packers this weekend. They got the bills coming up in buffalo. They do have Minnesota, but that will be an dome Indianapolis is in a dome. Then they got the games on a Miami. So it's not like they have a ton of cold weather games coming up, but it's also better to start getting that running game moving with both gore Andrey because they want any shot of the playoffs. They're not going to be hosting a home game because they're not winning division. So they're going to be traveling on the road. And you know, looking at right now on his way to start talking playoffs. Dolphins have a lot of work to do blessed us for HAMAs. You know, look at the board, and you know, patriots. You're probably getting the ones Ede. The chiefs also in a hunt for the one sees. So they're going to get one and two then you're looking at either the Steelers the Bengals being division leader in the AFC north. You're looking at the AFC south. You're probably looking at the Texans which is a dome then you look at it the AFC west. Which would be their division leader, which would be the chief. So they get the by. So you might be going up to Cincinnati or Pittsburgh to play that first playoff game. And you're going to need to learn how to run the football. Dolphins need to figure it out. How to get them? Both carries. How to touches? And do it the right way. Anything else before we wrap up the special edition of insider radio house? Nominee just get together. Go out there, and at least be competitive against Green Bay. That's all we ask. I don't know if any of us think they're going to win this game. But you just don't want to go out there and do what they did against Houston. Coz that'd be very demoralizing head into the bye week. And it would give a lot of us. Do you know how awful Twitter and be for the next two weeks if they went out there and just got shit. Don't I'm not ready for that. Yeah. You know, the dolphins were weird. Everybody knows that anybody. That's followed this team for a while has known that the dolphins were super weird. One of the things we're known for is. We will beat a possible Super Bowl contender in them. We'll lose to the worst team in the NFL. And I've been in the stands at limbo watching a mediocre dolphins team. Go and beat the Packers at Lambeau the same year. They won the Super Bowl. So I've seen some weird things happen when you're looking at the rest of the season, basically, if we can sweep buffalo, then you're looking at can we go three and two in the five games involve at Green Bay facing at Indianapolis. After by then you have New England at home at Minnesota and home against Jacksonville. Can we go three and two in those games? It remains to be seen. I'm again, a jaded cynical. Dolphins fan. I'm going to assume. That we're headed for eight purgatory until told otherwise, but we're going to show up and cheer our butts off for this team. Just a few other notes going back to defense. Meek and Fitz. Patrick, I believe played just about one hundred percent of the snaps which is what needs to happen. And dude handle it. Like a pro I talked to him in a locker room after the game. I talked to him after the raiders game. The dude is an absolute pro you could not tell he was a rookie very mature for being a rookie in the NFL. And being so young very well spoken. Very smart. Very intelligent. He has a bright future ahead of him. Jerome Baker coming along nicely in this NFL in his rookie season. I asked him about all the draft. Knicks who said he may be too small to play in the NFL. He said, thanks for the motivation. And he had the game ball yesterday. The dude was holding it the entire post game. He would not let it go. He was an absolute joy to talk to Kiko Alonzo. Had a great game has having a great season in all pro season, in my opinion. Definitely a Pro Bowl sees at the very least interception coming right? Jim. I asked him about that interception. He said, you know, sometimes those are the hardest ones where it comes right to in Kiko said, basically, he couldn't believe that. It was coming right at him. He got laid. Out on the sideline. And I asked them what that felt like. And he said, you know, I got the knocked outta me. He goes, it was not fun. But he got up. He was smiling he continued to play at a high level, and he has been great this season as he is now trusting the guys around him to make the plays that there were science to make. Again, overall great day for the defense. Great day for special teams terrible day for the offense. But sometimes it happens in the NFL and you take a win win. He can get it. Even though I've seen people upset about the win that doesn't make sense to me. The NFL is hard. You're planning division rival, regardless of style points, regardless of whatever it is. There is no asterisk in the standings of this win. There is no asterik says the dolphins. Offense played terrible. There is no asterisk on the Rams record either saying they put up whatever it was thirty five points. I believe it was an loss in the shootout. A loss is a loss of win is a win. You take a win when he can get it in the NFL. We'll be back later this week with a preview of the Green Bay Packers game dolphins. Head of the lambofield. Temperatures expected to be in the low thirties high twenties great day for football with Brock Osweiler. Once again the starting quarterback of the Miami Dolphins.

Niner Faithful Radio Niners jets Preview

"What's up Yasha boy faithful? How's everybody doing? Hope everyone is having a legendary week. Adam will be joining US shortly. I know some of Y'all tripping out like wait wait doing to episodes. That's right. We're we're trying to new a new show out this season. Or GonNa do some pretty view said we're doing breakdown niners justice today. Now A couple of quick notes, Akash, Shanahan went ahead and had a press conference I literally just washed it as I was waiting for. The. Show to start George Kendall. Is Out matter of fact here let me get. The injury. Report of course. I. Don't know where my phone is. Okay there is Lord everything's wonderful right. Okay. Here we go. I know that it was just recently shared on the nine or faithful radio facebook page. Here we go. Brennan how you? was a full participant today. It doesn't even have him listed as questionable anything. So I'm GonNa say that he's GonNa play. D. Ford missed practice. On both days at is listed as questionable ban garland was a full participant on Thursday and Friday, and he's not even listed. So I'm assuming he's playing. George Kendall is out and quarterback. Jason. VERITA. Is Out and a color witherspoon was a full participant in today's practice John Lynch came on came VR with morning and said that He is. A Go for Sunday. Yeah. Of course everybody say hello to my Mama. Hi Mama Yeah I know. Definitely I think that kittles not play because it's the jets and I believe that the team believes that he's better served staying in the bay area this weekend to go through some Rehab and some rest, and he will be meeting the team out in West Virginia. Next week in case anybody didn't know the niners will be continuing the tradition that was started by Jim Harbaugh. And they will be staying on the East Coast between. Their back to back east coast trips in the Greenbrier in West Virginia. We. Look. We all know what happened on Sunday we all know the disappointment that was in there but I know adamant I on Tuesday were very, very confident. At my confidence dates remains the same. look visit get right game, and if we don't walk out of here with the DUB. Big concerns as far as our super bowl aspirations I'm not necessarily so much like, oh, the season's. was. Up. Jason how you doing brother Bang Bang. It's Look as out this guy is volleying. It's just it's so hard to climb out of Owen to whole especially if all teams the division like they did. Last week than you know being down to. which is a good idea to keep their body caulking sync with the eastern time zone. Yes. Mama I really do think I mean honestly be surprised more west coast teams don't do it I mean to me it makes the biggest sense. Obviously, the travel is not fun. And obviously. I've come to find out. that. Now, I never had to get up at a particular time when I stayed on the east coast or I shouldn't say the east coast the eastern time zone. I never had to get up super early. So it isn't. A. Problem on fully no but let's be real. You have to get up at seven am. For for a ten o'clock game is them getting up at seven? Am Not getting up at ten am. So. Obviously. that. We are. Staying out there egg it our body Cox adjusted. Be The lack travel but also I think was not taking a being talked about this team really hasn't practice. I mean, let's Be Realistic Dad add fourteen padded practices. In training camp that that's clearly not enough to knock off the rest as we saw Harley the reason on for Sunday's loss. So I think it's going to be great benefit to have the team be able to have the ability to. Be Able there and get some practice get like a training camp type atmosphere, and so you're going to have another week. So we understand that it's not the full training camp practices but you know you're going to be able to have twenty one training camp. Practices hence. Most definitely. Looking thinking, that's an idea that's a great idea and. I could see within especially, if we go on this trip I, see a lot more teams eventually adopting it like Let's be real. No, I'd say eighty. percent of the NFL and and how things are done came from from the niners in the way that we did things especially under Bill Walsh. Just a little quick interesting little stats that I had on the game to prove while. I think I don't fully expect the offense to put up forty five points. I could see this being like a thirty, one to three. Twenty eight to nothing twenty, one, twenty, eight to ten type of game. I'm looking for the defense to dominant. I think the offense. If we dominate on the scoreboard and the the stat sheet I think it'll be directly linked linked to our defensive dominating and. Of course, we're not going to go over all the stats of last season 'cause that was last season in be. We're on to the new season, but also stats for that last week. Aren't that great but Since, Adam Gaze has taken over. The jets as head coach, they have scored on only twenty, four percent of their possessions worst. In the NFL they've gone three now on forty four percent of their possessions worse in the NFL and their average drive yardage is twenty three yards worse in the NFL. If that to me doesn't spell a get right game for the defense. Then let's be real game is going to be a game for the defense. We all know that Frank Gore frigging gangster stuff g, the inconvenience inconvenient truth frank the tank whatever you WanNa call him the goat. It I think that we could start calling him the goat now. He's I. Don't think the greatest ready back of all time, but he's definitely the greatest. Nine running back of all time. I don't even know the the abbreviations for great is nine are running back of all time of maybe somebody can figure that out, put it in the comments but. Let me see. We got adamant here yet nope no Adam. Something tells me that he's not going to He's not gonNA be coming today but anyway So. I think that. It's going to be I want to say a struggle pensively 'cause I just said I think that if offense does dominate, it'll be directly linked to. The defense putting in us in advertisers positions are I'm not appetizers a great positions but. The jets run D is pretty. legit. and. So a lot more of this will be on Jimmy shoulders. I'm going to hope that we run the ball and we'll get more into that during our keys to the game. Segment. But I think it definitely. We need to. Look at. Brand. Brandon I you know. I don't expect a too big of a game from him being is first game but you brandon your first round pick. in way I'm not expect to be Jerry, is not expecting you to do a Deebo Samuel did especially considering the depot didn't get off the world's greatest start but I am expecting him to come in and be productive. And to show that he is one of our best to receivers on the team. Mohamed Sanu I don't expect that twelve catches hundred yard game from him but you know I want him to be a security blanket for Jimmy I want him when things get When things go off track and Jimmy needs to get the ball out of his hand to avoid interception sack a fumble a hit whatever it is. I Want Mohamed Sydney. To be the player that he can throw the ball to. And rely on I. Don't think he'll be as productive as Emmanuel Sanders but almost like Emmanuel Sanders how you saw that immediately Jimmy looked at him as a safety blanket trusted him with his badge I think that's the type of role that we can see Muhammed. Sue. Play with the niners this season. A forty leave. Literally, we just hit the but. Last episode we as I literally looked down at my phone and saw that people were blowing me up trying to get me to make the announcement that Mama's new joined the niners. So I, think this is definitely get right game for the niners. We Love You Frankie Gee we're going to go ahead and give you are five keys game. key number one, these are in no particular order. Commit to the run. The. niners. I think you did a pretty decent job of running the football matter. Of fact, a pretty good job of running the football I just went away from it last week way too early especially considering that we let all be by only. One score majority of the game, but we will lead majority of the gay. So there was no reason to get away from the run game especially with some of the success that we had and keeping the Murray off the field. As we all know the best the best way to stop any offense is to simply just run the ball and keep them off the field. key number two third down. The niners, the cardinals were. Fourteen seven and fourteen last week fifty percent on on third down the niners were two of eleven. I. Don't know what percent is. That is that is horrible The defensive played Let's put it this way. I read a stat somewhere that I believe it was. The four games niners had lost all last season. The defense played at least I. Believe it was seventy snaps. So. So I don't think that's a coincidence UCR get tired. We need to run the ball to keep and and convert on third downs to keep the defense off the field and keep the offense on the field. So we can go ahead and grind out that clock I think the key to the this game is going to be a let's get up by two scores, maybe even three scores and take the air out of the football and get out of their healthy. Key number four. Key number four is stop Frank Gore. A I love you. Frankie Gates. You know you are one of my all time. Favorite niners. You're about, in fact, the only nine or player I actually have a poster of. Against you're the greatest daughter ready back TV. And I remember the day we drafted you. But I feel that. leading to our last key that will give away. But this is one of the only ways the niners can go. The niners can. Lose this game is if Frank. Gore goes off and the simply did not is just don't have enough possessions to be able to enough points to win this game so. We all know that Frank Gore can go off at any time. I watch this man go off for two, hundred, nine, believe it was twelve yards against the sheet. Cox. So Bright Gore is capable of it. I know he's thirty seven years old and played more games than any running back in NFL history but. The I don't ever question whatever twenty do. Key number five do not turn the ball over. That is going to be the only main reason the niners. That there could be scenarios refrain Gore goes off for the niners will win this game, but there is no scenario where the niners lose turnover battle and we win this game. I we just can't be giving the football away. That's how team stick around and this is the NFL. Any given Sunday as we saw with the cardinals, the Falcons. Many many. Times. You keep teams around. they can make plays and they can When Games it all it takes is if it's one score game, it only takes one score a fluke things happen all the time you know that football's oblong bounces weird ways. we're going to go ahead and end it right there. I like to appreciate everybody for listening to our first ever niners preview. Also, WANNA remind everybody to come. Check us out on facebook this week as we will be going live on facebook at.

GSMC Sports Podcast Episode 663: Live Sports Return to the US, Frank Gore's Longevity and The Greatest #5 In College Football History

"In this is your ultimate staffer. Everything sports the Golden state media concepts or podcast. Should I say more from the NFL MLB THE NBA MMA? It's all in here. Golden state media concepts sports podcast. Listen Dan any sports odd that presented by s MC podcast network mining's splayed and before. I get started today when I may remind you guys as always if you haven't already disregard to the podcast issue Nevis episode. Make sure always on top of the new drop related stuff. You could lose. Well gives faster rating rice interview. Vr appreciate it very helpful to has like Dislike you can improve all that fun stuff. And also if you're on social media social media so you can find us their twitter instagram facebook. Who can talk? We can chat. We can debate. You can discuss and finally at least in a condo sort of way. We absolutely sports talk about to a degree. it's not any American sports unfortunately but the Korean Baseball League Organization I should say is which is the highest ranking level. Baseball in South Korea is was at the beginning of schedule beginning season while today for me of course on Tuesday night but for you guys when you guys he has will be. Yesterday so is set to begin the season on Tuesday and making it one of the first professional leagues to restart and because they were so kind of us or guest. Spn worked out some sort of deal at night. Accu shore how this came about but they will be broadcast on ESPN two. I believe obviously the hours going to be a little weird because it's In Korea that the timing is operatives head of US so with that The thompsons time scheduled Like like I know the first the first game law I guess whatever the first game was. I guess it was like one o'clock in the morning like Tuesday came on one o'clock in the morning they have one. I think like they have games like five o'clock or five thirty in the morning. Eight o'clock in the morning or sporadically radically throughout the day dislike Throughout the morning and through the afternoon but yet it's just dead. There is finally at the very least something to watch in terms of lives for so great for ESPN to finally be would have something to show other than like Thirty for thirty unlike old documentaries in like old games whatever they finally have something live to show and then guess also gives more of these sports shows that are still kind of have to exist even in a world with little Snow News. I guess the only really thing that it makes sense or could continue having was like NFL lager. That was going to happen anyway. Is the off season. Granted would have had lake rookie. Minicamps or whatever. I'm sort of offseason. Work workout programs this this weekend or least not this weekend this week. But what isn't any of that but like everything Franz purposes it was gonna it was gonna be not that much different than it wasn't it wasn't a whole lot more news. We'll give you a whole lot more going on honestly for like the NBA. Like the show like the John for like get up or like I take that like officers talk by now because that is going to be dominated by basketball talk. Ready for the PLUG WILL NOT GETTING READY. Being in the midst of the play offs. Now and so you kind of are missing that but at the very least You now have green farming granted. I don't think everyone's going to be Going to be tuned in or near everything completely again because at the time the time draw off ninety. S It's more convenient for you like in the West Coast. But if I guess if you're one of the people that got laid off their jobs in like I said this Games during the day like in the afternoon so if you don't have to work you can watch some but then again it's like against Green Baseball's on round many People are really that into. It might be getting too now but I said we're here so for more specific guidelines on legacy deals reaching ESPN. In the Korean Baseball Organization that will allow the network to broadcast six games for week from the Abo those broadcast record like I said began Tuesday and ESPN will also broadcast the K B o Playoffs as well as its best of championships. Oh more content for them eastern personalities including Carr Ravage Jessica Mendoza Water Peres bug. Scabby encountered Peterson will call the games from their home studios. And there's a breakdown of how the first week of games will go so like said there's Tuesday there's one day at five thirty Thursday at five thirty so I guess by stuff during the week during the day that I was seeing on the guy for central Games we just like. Maybe it's just repeats Games which I mean in fairness the. Espn you gotta fill the time with something They said Thursday five thirty Friday five thirty Saturday at four. Am and Sunday at one. Am The breaking down like different people become different games? They can't be. I was hoping to get in a full one hundred forty four game season despite game starting six weeks later than usual Dan. We'll be watching as well as many as what's to see. Make our works and if it gives them a pillar of hope in which we'll get to a second. I'M A K B O. Take Place No fans and stadium obviously Empires wealth were more mass. Which a mega they normally do. But maybe different contracts and players will have their temperature taken before they enter the stadium Rates a little bit different than being. I'll be there only ten teams and a Blouse Archer is different on top of that you can expect to see plenty of offers Batting Average was point. Two six seven two thousand nineteen a number in the MLB point two five two. And maybe the most exciting part of this when the thing that excites me. The most outside of MEA founded fifteen is that they are known for their backflips now. I am a person that loves to watch agree. Play moved flip. I know I'm not alone out there but I know there's there's a bunch of weather. Emily players fans that are trying to like old rules of the game. People Blah Blah Blah. Like not that you can't have thumping like do it in a respectful manner that have the same respect for the game or whatever however that works. I am I net like look. If you don't want people flipping her bat after home runs then. Don't give up a pitch. That could get hit for a home run. It's it's seem like a very simple concept to knee and also in the baseball as a person who played baseball growing up through high school grades at like. I said it's not that high level I understand how difficult it actually is to hit a baseball especially like I said only the higher you get. The more difficult against guys are throwing faster. There are the commands better. They're Aussie pitches. Better like improved as you go up levels so I mean if it was hard enough doing it in house at the high school level of that was like that bad but again it's not an easy thing. No one very players hit like four or five hundred in high school. Unless you're like again you these targets. Those are the players you're talking going number one overall and mighty men on those guys though we have one guy in the Astros farm system shout to be lack Be mostly other guys on mobile. One guy went to against one. The guy went to a couple. Other guys Klay Small colleges but our team wasn't like that great so not we had all these great here so just again just an example of the fact that it's hard to baseball's my main point so like I said when you do you should be able to exude that excitement and like I say crane in cream baseball. I guess maybe it was this league But the Green Bay Organization in just over over seas known for their backflips. That'll invites hidden provide some exciting celebrations. So I know without I do need to learn more about basically pick my team. I'M GONNA fly say my did with the XFL Just like see like. Oh what players do you recognize? Any of these players are known these players De do these teams have cool. Uniform like La- Mascots Order Guy. No have like funny mascots sudden idea just like whatever helps you be able to pick your team to follow. Though I guess embarrassed most would just be following the file because I guess it's not really a whole lot going on but hey at least it's better than nothing at the verities. It is better than nothing. So yes just. If you're a sports fanatic something to be able to keep you. Keep your interest. Maybe worth reading up on the Korean base Balkanisation like I said. Find the player. You may like picking team and just like you said just giving yourself an outlet to watch something it's not Mba Playoffs. Not The it's not the NHL playoffs is that the NFL but it is better than nothing. So like I said you gotTa at this point. Bigger came grabby chooses we? Mike Liberals Whatever's last sport we can get and Mega said Green Baseball. There were stare worse things in terms of exciting that we could be getting almblad outside of that. This league should provide not only Lamar hope. But also kind of like a baseline guyland like how things could slash woodwork. If in when like sports dot back up again I do believe they're going to be without fans. That's already a one part Abbott than like. I said they're come to stadium. You take your temperature every day for two games is that something that teams like like sports at the NBA or the Mlb Nhl am alas NFL. Vega be willing to do that. Do the same thing like maybe. I'm assuming they gotta do similar. Things go to practice again. Viewing everybody making sure like I said the UMPIRES. Or the referees are outfitted with the proper mask or whatever the Mitchell. They're not spreading anything if they they happen to have it Does I said dislike? It can give you a guy nice guideline of what it would look like and how you should be handled assuming they handled successfully now if it happens on that in like a couple of weeks somebody catching nets at the only down. Then our than that of hobby a Downer. Because it'll just be another example of what could happen when the league start back up like like. I've been saying it's just with no no cure out there. It's going to be nearly impossible for no one in your league. No matter lead to catch it at some point once he wants a slice backup is one. That happens what do you do. Do do go the NBA route. Where you where you Shut the whole league down. You go like a where you like. Just quarantine Ma'am specifically the people around them. Maybe that team like how does like I said it's interesting to see how it will play out. Just how it all worked so then stabbed not a good case study in case. You don't want it to happen but if somebody in the Katya does catch the Rona what does the League do or how do they handle it? Luma said how they handle. That could be what to do or potentially what not to do so like I said I imagine all sports leaves commissioners owners executives. Players may be even good keeping an eye on the said it gives you hope that if we do what we have to do here as Americans which I mean. They are free of different over here than they are. Another part of the world. So that's why we've had these protests Against it and people are like fishing opens up backup and stuff is being back up. Whether it's divider longtime ago we'll find out soon enough. Maybe a couple of weeks once we see if there are the numbers spike up again. If it's kind of stay the same or even drops off which I mean as ozzy which would want but then sounds what's going to happen but you never know. No one really hasn't a whole idea of what can happen this disease. We yes so the main point is that with that dyslexia just gives you something to strive for. Just be like. Hey look if we do this. We can get here as well. That's all we want. Get the entity. Most of us just want to be able to get back to watching sports. I got the players. WanNa go back. Playing sports goes on. Get the coach. Sports on is want to get to making money and like I said it goes it starts with us as citizens and the American people doing we have to do in the corn team. They now's wants things open back up taking the proper precautions in order to make sure that it doesn't spread it. I mean there's goes right like it doesn't like there's not like a huge spike at numbers because that happens then we're going to go back. She everything everything shut down maybe even longer and then and then who knows when we'll be able to anything at all so as if you don't want that then if you're if allowed there's no way to stop it because again there's no cure but at least take the proper guidelines but Yes oh. I thought it was cool. out to use. Pin for brokering was deal in fairness if you're the KVIL and you're the only sports on Mazda get more viewers as many as you can though natural. Poppy is GONNA be over here because again like I said the timing's off of when the Games will be played over there. Just as opposed to when they can be watched And the different time zones in America but I seemed like it'd be replaying them throughout the day so at least you'll have time to Kofi cash at some point be Google them. Go you span forgiving. Us something new and like I said at the end today. We really can't be too picky. At this point we've been watching going through rewatch. Give another replaying I think it was the fail Mary. Game I think on Tuesday also saw an NFL network. They replay A Detroit that Jor game the KINDA got shafted with a couple that instead faced penalties on Monday night game against the packers earlier this season now the that osce the pack of winning. But I'm it was a debate on whether the packer should have won that game but a yes. That's what we've been this. All we've had is old games now. This is something new something fresh something when you don't know the outcome before the game starts said better than nothing so is the allegations and once I beam to learn more and being to watch more and begin to like pick and choose what Simona root former players I wanNA refer will check biking with fiscal like. I said it's got so this won't be the last time we talked about the caveat on these not from me on this podcast. Liam soft break on comeback. And we're going to switch gears to a sport that is hoping to come back eventually in the NBA. A player. That may be coming back once. That season starts back up again. They had been before so anti right hand about how coming back. He could have if they choose to play him talking about the team. Kinda of Mbeki Valentim. How could affect league as a whole olive himself? We will discuss rafters break so stay right there.

I was hoping that they abo works out so that they at least have a garden baseline to base their season. Awful whenever get started though different circumstances. You're starting this season the MBA was in the middle of their season for that. Shot it down near the end of the season regardless before had shut down so again. You're not you're not starting fresher starting in the mail but the Mac into these is going through. Try in some way shape or form to finish out the season get a championship. However that happens it happens. Are they going to try to figure out a way but I mean for these one team that that could mean end the addition of some key players so if anybody's been following in the NBA Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving signed with the nets in the off season argue standing governor signed and traded but regardless they both came to Brooklyn now. What happened Katie towards the Kelly's Playing in the finals against the raptors. Shouldn't I mean in my opinion men out there I need is what it is BIA. So he he was out the whole season. But now the season's been postponed. There's at least a discussion around. Will he or can he or should he come back and return and I know the nets. Gm Sean Mars GonNa commented on it Earlier I guess it was earlier today or no. This was on Saturday. Talked about it today. Back with the article or they were discussing today so March was talking to a New Zealand was Agassi's traumas from New Zealand. So he was back talking to a native New Zealand reporter or or news outlet. And he remarked. That's the one hundred ten mile questions lousy. That's the contract in all series. We tried to not talk about his time at a lot He's at about the he knows by better than anybody. Performance team training staff of DENNARD TREMENDOUS JOB. Getting him to this point. But I just don't know how coming out of this pandemic will affect anybody let alone Kevin durant longtime business partner partner. Rich climbing had opened the door to a late summer return by ten the Washington Post at the end of February that it was definitely possibility that there aren't would play. The Tokyo Olympics Games would have been scheduled to start in July but again out today. Respond have reclaimed. Also told you spend Golic and Wingo shortly the NBA season suspended. This standard spend the season in mid March. That hopes of draft playing juniors alive. Were not very likely you followed up with the grants on my vacation on April thirtieth On which he said his assumption is no that Katie will play this season else. Test Positive for cove nineteen saugus wealth to see how that if in Nathan Hale it affects them but as we know them be has no timetable. One's GONNA come back or how would come back? Or what have you in? The Nets currently would are in the seventy eight at thirty and thirty four despite Ozzy Katie. Not PLAYING IN THE CAIRO. Only playing twenty games Manche almost also mentioned that he. They've got a lot invested in a playoff Kevin going to push him to come back. When timing's right he'll be hundred when he gets on the court. I can tell you this. Before the pandemic he looked like Kevin Durant. And that's a good thing because I well he would know that and then also there was some clips of him. I like practice of doing different shootarounds of during workouts or whatever that hit the the the twitter timeline and he looked to be moving. Good now granted practice looking good game with gutter two completely different things. So that's fair to say whether or not he would be ready to play in a game right now but I mean in about a month or so it will be full. Ouaga's be pretty close full county year since mountains detours because whilst since he had the surgery so again that's not the save it automatically means. Oh we should be good to go blah blah like everybody. Everybody feels differently. Everybody reacts surgeries in to different treatments and everything differently so just because the timetable for such and such person this amount of time does not mean is going to be exact same for somebody else but at the very least he will be well. Removed from. The surgery is not yet the surgery sometime during this season. And we're talking about getting him back this. Is You know we had it last year? So He's been fair conversation to have now. Do I think he's going to come back? Probably not just because guess. It would depend aren't they could only come back if two things happened if one some car was good to go and. I don't think that's going to be the case so I mean I have to get pushed back really far north to be case and I don't think that'll happen Or they do where they don't go right into the plows because I don't feel like it's a good for Kevin or good for the nets as a whole to for him to be out there in the first game playing being game one of whatever plus against the Raptors or somebody that is like doesn't affair fair to him. It's not fair that the team they haven't played they start back up and like I said if they start back up right at the right at the plows don't really do have the practices and stuff but they don't have any like warm up games before then so then it will be well over three four five months before they played a game together as a team. So I said having a player has good Kevin Durant makes in theory makes things easy but also like I said it's a big presence. The big it's a big Not necessarily personality Bush. It's a big player to get back onto your team just like you gotTA. You don't really know how will be integrated in out all work so you want to get a few games tune that up before you get into the playoffs but like I said Dome Out. There are engaged one as an. I don't know every does for anybody as a whole because at like at things on go whether or not plan four game like did you really bring Katie back to play four games that that necessary but like I said if they decide to like do a little like tournament or like through some like finish out the regular season before whatever then as I alright than offensive decision is a little bit more reasonable to be like? Hey if you want to play the that's going to be the big thing it's like. How does he feel he? Is You can as a doctor as like a medical person or like an executive coach. Wherever you that you can think this person's ready to go. But they feel ready to go like you don't you can't you can't make anybody be ready to go if that makes sense. But it's because the stuff checks out like it's been They've they've done this amount of rehab there done that or or this thing or whatever This'll they've gone through does not necessarily mean they physically feel ready to be back in position. So that's where they're going to have to kind of decide how that's GonNa Work. Just because it's that doesn't seem fair to him over the team just stone back out there in the first game playoff game but at the various at this point it's at least a discussion because like you said they didn't know one would least maybe people couldn't predict us like December January but When the seasons on October no one could have expected a pandemic to shut down the season. Because no that was on anyone's list of possible things that have happened but said it's here now it's happened is the thing and with that. That again just gives a possibility. I wholeheartedly believe that had no poems. He ever come back this season even if they would somehow made Matica onto the finals like whatever he was comeback nearly like is than if he doesn't played the whole season He comes on the platinum seem. Very listen right to him or right to the team. Whatever they got that far there then they don't need him but they could definitely be alright without him per se so they would make any sense to me to do that but as I said. That's just me. I don't know if the decision was but like I said do the fact that that now at that time tables now off and we don't know what it's GonNa come back and it could be June Will skin not going to be like July August before the season starts back up again? That's well like I said as past year mark in my after that will not in my thing. That's that's actually visiting fizzy past the year mark of when When you would have had the surgery saw at least at least a possibility to save at least let like you never know but then also I think the interesting part of it was that along for what refinements that I know Brian. Moore's mentioned this the jump earlier today was that like his name was preliminary in the conversation to be on the Olympic team. So that may not sell. He was going to do it but if his name if he wasn't gonNA take his name off right now. I'm not doing it. But if he at least mentioned like it's as as possibility that means he thought he was going to be ready to play some Foam Organiz basketball in July August now playing Olympic basketball with ten eleven of the best players in the world against teams. That you're most likely more talented than not necessarily better but more towns than generally look different than coming back and playing in a tightly contested pressure-packed playoff series in Asia. I Games with the new team. You trying to like show off your time to make sure that the money that they paid you action was worth it trying to make a good impression on your team. Which on new fan trying to make a gun pressure on the League to be. Hey I'm not I'm still Kevin Durant like I'm not anything different than I was before I was injured. Something that's different than showing up on the world stage like I said you don't really you'll have to start that he would just come off the bench. You could play ten minutes a game something like that. That is not that serious. The team probably will be fine without you but I was against cooler. Have you Kinda thing? If that's what he wanted to do. Jump saying the fact that he at least was willing to inferior that not necessarily that he was going to put it in his head. That was an option. That would seem like it's a good time to be that he could be ready to do something in like July August whenever the the NBA Season Ward is our backup if it if it does Leeann just it'd be interesting to see how long the longer this plays out if if that's a legitimate discussion nets ended up having. I know they're having talks about it now but it was never really a thing that they thought could come up Just like would do we bring Katie back now and like I said only really makes sense to me if there's a regular season some sort of games before you get. The playoffs started because they're in the playoffs. Right now. They're probably I don't know I guess I could have to look at how far ahead they were from like the eighty nine. Tennessee's or whatever they're probably going to make the plows bugs that it doesn't it's not right. It's not fair to him. It's not fair to the team to destroy him back in there for playoff game. With all the money they have invested in him and then risk shouldn't Be Sea. She would think a year removed. But I never know With with With these type of injuries especially lower body you start having them then then kind of snowball In just a keep on common. But it's just be interesting. Seems thing monitor under susie? If he says anything specifically lousy all was all this speculation at this point of he either shut down or he it up even more and then also. I guess we'll just have to the today rumors waiting to see if there is any Basketball at all to look forward to In the coming months because that's the biggest thing. There's no season to come back to them. Then all this is a moot point but if there is a season coming back now it's when the discussion deputy ramps up. Can once you know that you will be able to do? They're going to do something and I feel like I said. I think they're going to try to play something but I'm not trying to get some of these young in some way shape or form bridges. You don't really know when and I guess the August we'll see how the reopening of stuff goes because once that happens and if the numbers stay pretty much the same or drop off then you probably get to go at least in terms like temps against worthwhile but if the numbers like I said in a couple of weeks they start spiking back up again then had like I said it it might be. It might be before sports for the foreseeable future. I mean I say that if we haven't already been without sports like two months we sit America like I said there are not the Korean. The creamed even leaves have tried to start back up his hasn't worked but in America it's been early March since the once the shutdown that we've been without sports it's unfortunate. What is what it is at this point so yeah I just thought it was interesting that the constitution around Kevin Durant just if he decided to come back to you if the necessary to bring him back out with all work and December then all predicated on actually having NBA Games. So you gotta get to that first baby steps here. We gotta go take steps if the game. I don't forget the Games back and art can start talking. We can ramp these discussions back up once again. Be so after this next break. Come back here and we're going to discuss in An older NFL player that assigned a one year deal with new team. And it just interesting. 'cause I think his best physical ability as Danna for running back has just been. Deputy is not as skilled people. Talk about an obsession like that. It's it's it's definitely an important skill to have so I guess Atlanta it's very important skill. So we'll talk about that Talk about the player with the team. What he could bring to the team his own jeopardy just like how What's happening with him? Could impact other guys down the line so discuss that after this break? Stay right there.

Sherman have one When you deal with the jets The Gore who turned thirty seven or will turn thirty seven in about a week. May Fourteenth is a thorough leading. Rusher gun for history reunited with coach. Adam Gates who coach Gore in Miami Twenty. Eighteen forgot about that they also will work together in two thousand eight in San Francisco. Woodgate's was a variable level officials at the time official assistant at the time was using a Gore's arrival at another layer to the death offense and especially the running by situation. I don't know how much you necessarily will add on the field but at least it seems like a good guy really been in complaints vitamin. I guess what this is. Having many years like sixteen. Seventeen season notaries. Anything bad about him and now gas had told us being the lead just last week they want to lessen. Libyan bells role who had thirty three hundred and eleven punches last season it most in the NFL nipping younger at the runways to create a real one two punch as obviously after getting with Gore because again thirty seven But again I guess they thought it would be a cool chance to at a veteran to the Locker Room. Guy Kind of News gays may help Media relation between him belks officer reports that they kind of had their own gripes or beefs or situations and Mike said gases had nothing to say about Gore. So maybe that'll help. Like I said like can help men that a little bit enough that I'm not good reason to sign a player but the main mega may be something needed some more veteran leadership Said this the jets team is pretty inexperienced at the quarterback position. ought to dislike around most a team like the outside like bell like CJ Moseley and a couple of guys here. Most of these guys have really done much one much anything like that so again. Bring a guy. That's been around. Laurent League for a while can be a nice calming presence in the Locker Room and again have bought. Sam Darnold will be owning his third year. Donald much video call on Tuesday that he's heard from bunch we blazer. He's a great guy with great worth with a great work ethic is really good leader Locker Room Guy. Looks like he can still play Debatable but Were thought to have my negotiators worked with him before. And he thinks highly of him as well as be Gore sixteen season. Okay sixteen or seventeen and he played last year with the bills. Benching with five hundred nine nine yards on three point six yards per carry both career lows. He did however pass Russian this ad in the season with fifteen thousand three hundred forty seven yards and trails only Emmett Smith and Walter Payton despite his modest number supposedly he was very good or very good mentor. Oregan influence as say on Rookie Devon Secretary with the bills who train with Gorda Florida before the season and maybe have a similar impact. Another draft Louis Michel Piron may have similar impact on him though. I know from a bills. Fan Perspective and a lot of them are especially indebted. Fancy people to were disappointed. Every time go got the ball because they could have been using dancing a little bit more news earlier in the season one was kind of obvious. That Gore wasn't going to give you that much on on the ground. Who would've thought it'd be better utilized so again from desert district probably not neces- happy but he's not mad that offering gone per se because again more touches for him Interesting interesting marriage there with the jets Biggest our need to do something with the backfield because obviously wasn't that great last year. They'll let you could argue. That might've been hand part of that. Might have been the quarterback situation with Donald kitchen the mono when catch mono And the office while not being that great when obviously coming from off the line with steelers during most of his time there so I was acquired adjustment but even getting still he was the numbers. Don't look great rushed for only seven hundred eighty nine yards and three point two yards per carry the lowest in franchise history who for minimum hunter. Sanjar Carey's so you might mentioned. They had him gates may have had their little rift. So maybe mortgage I can admit that is second year of his deal bellows that could potentially trade him. I don't really see that happening. I I I don't trade him and make Levian or not make Frank Gore the guy. That doesn't seem like a smart Front office move. Because I'm like he can't be the start on offense. Offense is not going to do anything and then like I said. You have Michael P Ryan. But he's a rookie running backs. Can't commend have impact? But he's not. He was like a first second round pick he was. He was a little bit later in the draft Round guys that you don't really expect those guys that come in be in Excellent Day One. You hope for but you don't expect it so that they can expect that. From Frank Gore I mean from the Michael Piron if they'd reduce your belt The main port talk offering Gore was His skill of long Javid Gore who only been selected to five pro bowls instance only but been selected. Fire pro bowls in Russia over thousand yards nine times and in his fifteen year English in fifteen of his seasons. He's had at least five hundred rushing yards which is the most wanted his three The neck is our Smith. Fourteen more to pay thirteen marks island with thirteen are all in the pro football thing. So there's an argument to be made about Frank Gore being in the hall of fame and allowed that Argument stems from his ability ability. I should say of availability And a Lotta people say like an Cliche Conway that your best ability is your ability. But there's no greater personification of that That might be word Or for that then Gore because he's going to be a guy that is like I said currently third on the all-time rushing this. I'm trying to see I'm trying to see how far the back of my Nolanda you'd have to play two more seasons or rush for fourteen hundred yards. Any of those things happen so he's probably going to finish third and like an in such on how good of a season he has. Or how much is utilized? Have a decent a lead on Barry Sanders who is currently in fourth place though I guess he's got AP on sale so we'll see about that But Yeah so. Frank has been a guy who's many could argue and. I think I have argued in the past on podcast. That isn't really like that. Great in terms of like his skill level like I've seen great seasons he starts. She says meaning the nine three thousand success but at what point in his career could do to save at like Frank. Gore's the best running back in the lead times during his career. Did you say from top five running back in the league? Very few but do-does availability him being around who's aim cumulate yards and keenly late stats and now at the Jimmy case for him being hallway. And I think that's a testament to him and test mentally. He's taking care of his body because Especially at the running back position. These guys don't last that long allow. These guys are out of the League by early Thirties. Maybe some some most of the Mona good amount. I'm even before that the kind of you laws you unusual especially nowadays your rookie contract. They don't pay you. Someone else goes and pay you. And then you kindest flameout basically. What the big apple this lease in recent years has been the DEMARCO Murray He was used the used up. The game all scares always carries around the Russian title Dallas. They let him walk. Went to the Eagles didn't really have that great of a season though. I mean that was the last ship. Call Your smartvestor chip Kelly thing Got To titans won decencies and he was the album who took when he was a tie. But yeah just like you said it's it just shows the greatness of Frank Gore in a way that we normally don't look at me. Look at them like Chris. Speed or their agility or they're catching ability or there Athleticism stuff like that. But that's just not what Frank Gore is going to be as he was out of his last year The Garment Margaret Margaret. That's in the. Nfl was twenty seventeen. And I at age twenty nine. Yeah I would leave by thirty. A Guy who is isis in Dallas had almost nineteen hundred yards and thirteen touchdowns averaged hundred and fifteen point three yards per game and added another fifty seven receptions over as three three hundred ninety Russia's fifty seven sections again over four touches. They gave him in his last season. Use Them Up. Had A great season didn't work out Fleming Lawson playoffs whatever And then there's like that was a well basically. They said he had one good year in two thousand sixteen. Titans had almost three hundred yards and nine touchdowns but then the after that had under seven hundred yards and man exactly so just I know I know when you look at Gordon dislike and you're GonNa see his name all timeless people gonna be so confused and unlike is just like I said his best ability. His best ability was his availabilty. And when you seen guys like him you can you can. Maybe I don't know if it's GONNA change the way people view the recognition per se because it's like art again not that he's like the greatest or he's been like that great. The last few seasons like he hasn't had two thousand yard season since two thousand sixteen in that happened with the colts at age. Thirty three he had not all been on one thousand years season you after that would not hundred sixty one yards at thirty four. So I wonder this. Going to recalibrate a recalculate. The way people think about their own reputation because normally you think all right you get the deal you There Available for the contract. You don't pay them and then you just find another guy to replace because If you have a good offense ally in a very messy one easiest the replace in the NFL because again a lot of it. A social run by can be mass behind good offensive line and they open up holes. I mean if you can just if you have enough business again if you're unfortunate for timers and he just couldn't read the holes right and that's why he without at least quick but if you got at least read a whole then you'll be fine binding it off into line doesn't really matter who you are BS. Bso Just they do that. Recalibrate the way people think of running backs off they can play until he's thirty seven? Ap's playing till guess. Old Agent Peterson. he is even with this up and he is currently. He is currently fair. Thirty five thirty five much and again east. Still missile going neighbor will be running back for Washington next next season. Nusa assuming guys fully ready to go on my latest like too worried about Madonna. But yes. I'm saying this guys that are going to be playing or happily into thirties. An eighty via two thousand dollars ANA thousand dollars. Two years ago it was for running backside process a little bit different but again vs this. These are situations the guys playing to their thirties. New Seen with quarterback without position. Goslett can play long but longer but as you run by with this. No people didn't think that's possible but neither of two guys in the same generation that have been able to maintain him by making a good enough skill level where they can play volunteer thirty that position where many people want twenty eight. You're basically shot so I wonder if it'll affect people in the future. No out of big running. Back on Zeke epide- Christian McCaffrey has got paid But there are cameras on the Franchise Tag For Nets Dingus. Fifty option picked up again. There's I mean again. Those who are different running backs than McCaffrey. In Zeke comparison trying to get a deal. Does it curious? I'm curious to see if there will be a switch in the way people viewed around mark. Let's just say the same way like? Hey look keeping while they're cheap and want to get too expensive. Just let him go or pay for then. You don't really reaping the benefits from it. Because like as he wants he is in. But they pay Zeke and then it got the main season even though he was still so. It's like is it really worth it at the end of day. So yeah those says Examine them look just kind of Kind of marvel at that a Guy. Who's amnesty great at one thing other than being able to to stick around and there's a skill in that in of itself to be a God. It's great alarm also good enough on the field to be able to keep getting jobs because if you were bad if we were tear. Wellness that aren't category was in the Locker Room. Not like backup quarterback. No one's bringing on a thirty five year old Brian by just because he's in the locker per se no they might but being a good guy locker room and being a good enough player can keep you around. Sh- suit to Frank Gore for that because many minority is not that he wasn't that great running back but a a lot of running backs that were better than him maybe career in Plato. Thirty seven so nice. There's something to that Just being able to just be out there and keep your body right in order to maintain and also maybe it'll be maybe with turns trainer and Mike Teach running by. Saad say healthy. 'cause I mean again. Not that he's make running like four threes out here anything but he's been able to maintain and play. Nfl football the age of thirty six. That's not that's not something. Most player that aim station can do let alone the ramp acquisition and I said if worst comes be personal trainer Train running back to be able to keep their body healthy for long periods of time. So it'd be agency ethics salute different goal and speaking of their bodies healthy Coach coach Tibbs Tom. Fidel Is is available here searching for jobs and apparently there's at least two to three teams that are looking into his services so we will assess those teams discuss. Maybe where he would best fit are where he eventually end up houses. No Russian these things 'cause the NBC's is not over yet but it's just inching fan of talk about at this time so I thought I would See and we'll discuss that rafters break stay right there.

Visit MC PODCASTS DOT COM for more INFO Old From the new era post Article but Tom. Tiptoe has quarantined in Connecticut unclear on his next move just like everyone else in the NBA. Obviously can only knows if anything's going to happen but since Being ousted in Minnesota and made his third season as Slash President Tivo as attended various. Nba says he has spent a Lotta time imbedded with the clippers warriors and Celtics among others trying to keep close game and while most storm hooked to pay him for next season There indication he he's itching to get back on the sideline in some capacity obviously prefer head coach. Air For the twenty and twenty twenty one season. Okay so I do remember this. On the new report in Newark Post reported in February that typically would be on the on Rosa's shortlist and those to be a favourite if the new team president chose not to bring back Mike Miller head coach. I believe I talked this Dan obviously since the season ended on. There hasn't really been any need to For anybody ready to go to a whole flon coaching search. You don't know if you're going search this year for next year it's just it's all kind of fusing so once the season ends maybe they'll be a more a search that is done with among many teams but While his overall reputation may have taken a hit with the failure in bringing in Jim Bowie to Minnesota and like how it all went down with the young guys. The post was told by their sources that the nets Houston will have strong interest to Houston's Mike Dean and Dantonio will be a free agent next year. I remember that It appears to bill would have interest in all three jobs but the Knicks will get first crack at the former assistant coach since they will be competing any potential playoffs which is as yet important caveat because is much the same thing like when. Nfo Coaches when you Where the you can you can go about hiring a head coach sooner than team that are in the president of moving off from the coach or like their G. R. Their Office Coordinator Defense Coordinator. Whoever they said you get first crack. And there's there's something to getting that first crack because if you get impression You can steal him away. If you will from the guys you won't have to worry about Anyone else getting interview him because new already and be on top of it and I'm in the nets pie will be shortly but the rockets could Respect to at least make when their first round series pinch make the second round so like I said. It's GonNa be a long time if he if you would want to wait on that job to be free and maybe he just won't feel doing that. So that is an important. Caveat Plus tibidow along with see the next thing I crack. Tim does a creative arts agency. Client has worked with rose And Rosen knows his old school ways players in like step toughness according to sources NBA. Our next the not as but not stars Kevin Durant Kyrie Irving each liking respect Timoteo. Who coached them as a team? Usa since that's important Kevin Tabatha Junkie. He loves him. Once and be source familiar with situation. Great players wants be coach is at the lazy ones if you think. The coach has a higher best walk within if they think the high the high walk with them. Then they're all in after his January. Six hundred thousand. Firing typical face claims. He's still intense on young players. And out of touch with millennials. Unfamiliar With Long are practices in the NBA load in the Load Management Mba. Air Recurrently in maybe going to heap blame on time. You have to give him credit as well said Brian butlers agent so often NBA teams. Play it safe and stay on the fence and don't want to be tied to actual results. Tom took a big risk that came with results that ultimately proved to not be sustainable. But it's was required at the time and detail. In second year with the Bulls broke their thirteen year. Playoffs drew Drought Gunda playoffs. He won seventy percent of his home games in the last two seasons established multiple franchise records including highest controversy efficiency but he had issues with carthy towns and and who the Knicks Co target. I mean live Knicks have been targeted people for the last ten years and gotten out it is like mellow so take with a grain of salt And the Andrew Wiggins the clashes with him as well and that he would let his departure Apparently Towns said that his his handler young praise was a disrespecting slap in the face to their development. While are meanwhile like ours. Didn't have those issues Costa. Before but again some maybe some of the things that he thought about the young players tip additives. That is muller thought as well Hanan. That's why they had their they ended up ended up having to ship. Butler out and typical also took the fallen Minnesota as he had lobbied to bring them by learn. Gave Up. Zac Levine and the rights of Lower Martin Miss Minnesota USA said tiptoe successful in bringing in former bulls do remember Brian. Dowdy Upton too. So that's kind of were thing but I think there's more stuff obviously with him being defensive Coach now not being a offense guide. No team that he's ever had is ranked higher than sixteenth in the League and three pointers per game. Which I mean caveat Kadian not going to happen you're GONNA you're GONNA have A lot of things but I said there's more on the article you can read it. It's on your poachers like Google tubes. In the next year you'll be able to find it. Leah so long story short with tips. I feel like the reason knicks. Not so much. I understand like the allure of the job but again it's just it's just putting him back in the position where he has his in before. Who's his biggest issue is being able to connect supposedly again. I don't know I wasn't in from Sodom knows for a fact but some reportedly his big issue is connected with the millennials. Now and just like the Kyle is his style. Coaching being dated for like I said the younger generation. Now maybe it's time away from the game. The kind of watching different teams work has has Got Him update his philosophies. But we don't know we won't know that until the time comes for the tax should be put into practice but if I'm the next and I know that he's had a bad track record for younger guy with with younger guys and I'm a team full of young or that's going to be full guys. I know have a lot of older guys in vet gas on like one or two year deals but looking to be the future. The future there are bare. It's Mitchell Robinson may be offered and frank ntilikina where they draft this year so those are GonNa be the future. That team is moaning of the young guys. Not The best that you have so if you can't connect to them then that's going to be a problem. They already know like big reports from cat over four and millions or from Levin or whoever the like Hey This is how he does things like an and they already get. They argue about taste in their mouth before they even start and then they they see that their worst fielder brought to light. Then she's like I said it's GonNa be a whole just like he's doing the same thing over and over expecting different results so have you seen. He's struggled in failed with younger players before connecting to them while Situation again and it doesn't make any sense to me if I'm the next Such I mean granted. Maybe they a think they'd there'd be able to get like on us or like somebody in free agency which may can but again we've been saying that for how long and hasn't Happy Adventures GonNa have to happen but it hasn't happened yet. People thought I was GONNA be last year with Katie and Kyrie manned of going to the next. I mean go into the nets so big. Their biggest frame. She's hunting was chose. Not The Jewish Is a terrible player. Somebody Katy Perry. Julius randle. Pretty big pretty sizable account wikipedia. The allure of the next job and the rockets job though the rockets things we because that'd be complete. Shift GOING FROM OFFENSE. Dantely to all defense and Sibito but that she would players like Ross and harden. They don't or won't give on defensive emulated that that's not that's not their game per game is more known there and it's more predicated on the opposite side of the ball so like how does that help with and again the rock. So team shoots a lot of threes. So how does that marriage work in granted. May this is mainly Dantonio thing? But it's just like that'd be a vast shift implausible to go from all offense to allow defense. That is just like that immigrants that I do think Daytonas bobby out of their borrowing winning a championship which I don't think up but yet urban up if Russia's if Ross is able to find a shop nettle just only hands the offense that much From what already was which was very good. Once they got rid of Capella considerably especially for Ross is very Russia's spaced operate and everything so I don't expect Antoni be around so I could see why you'd want that job creation veteran guys they are. You have guys that you WanNa win you guys. That may be will be able to deal with some of the old school mentality in ways that he has again if he's still stuck to that then also known another big things like that. He just kind of ran historic into the ground which probably doesn't win by Ross. As much as that. He lied his a lot of energy. So it doesn't really affect them again order so maybe it does but also the James Harden like his style of play has led to him quote unquote breaking down and having some poor performances in the playoffs. So now he's even more tired because now instead of laying. Ashi take that back. He was playing like. There's like he wasn't playing a lot of minutes. Would they Antoni that? He was actually doing more offensively than defensive. Banal Fiesta if he has to do the same things or a similar things Give negative not giving a given more. That's what tips does than like I said by penguins plows. His legs may be tired. Or whatever. All those we've be to step back threes. Don't don't don't hit like they did during the reason. That's kind of been his problem before this so I don't know if that'll help anything at all son of the rockets work and I mean four the nets. I could see it just because again if you have Experience Coaching Katie. And Kyrie. Duty Your Tomatino. So that helps. They'll release respect. You and I mean granted capable coming off of an serious injuries. You know run him into the ground and that's not not use to just enough presidents. They were beating teams by so much but is under years used by a lot of minutes. Both during the season on the playoffs Same with career is not a Charissa nebot again. Both those guys Encountered for different things not all leg. But he's had some injuries to and if I like I said you saw guys whether it was like Div Rose Ord Lou. Alday broke down earlier. Joking no broke down earlier that has Akwa being like got hurt. Them not not necessarily based on The way in which ran things. But you don't know and also you D rose never able to get it back together after he tore his. Acl has been fine other places. But now the Bulls Save. Maybe that that whole player's arteries four minutes. A game run them hard and practice. Do US ask yourself is not really built for the NBA? Narrow you guys GonNa need days are GonNa need. I said giving news the new load management Arabiya and need to adapt to the time that he was not going to do that. I don't know Agha's with the injury history of Korea Guy. Katie coming off of zero injury that that's like the best kinda coach but I said we don't know tips changes ways. Sophie changed his ways and he's more willing to adapt into adjust than to try to connect with the younger relaxed off of some of his offense philosophy and also like his car his hardware fluffy's then maybe a nets makes the most sense because again they have a more ready now team. I'm not going to be one another's religious without Babbio. Any Minnesota found him. I don't feel like doing that and also like I said from the rockets. It just seems as long as more. He's still there like I don't see how they that direction with more may not maybe more. We'll be gone to with Dan. Tony so if helium of men who knows but I think if I was going to pick out of those three teams if I'm Tibbs I'm probably going to pick the nets again due tomorrow. I mean they have the The best player in in Katie though not always going to be off the injury but to have the best player. Katie not that James Harden roster bad but the the best player of the three teams and said you have experienced with them though I guess he would have experience with. Russ in Horn to delay played on the team Just like the whole philosophy changes be a lot for me and Houston for that to make a whole lot of sense not said he can't Or complete like a complete one eighty and that does not seem like a bit much asserts of the nets they from guy that very well with the president was good with development. Maybe wasn't good at the next level to God that like I said that has been at that level and had teams have success in the League and maybe can be to help usher in the new era of the nets. Either that makes sense but again. Maybe he doesn't get past the Knicks because again he like school with rose and Get I up maybe News end up with next. And then we'll pray for our debates niece if that happens I guess we're kind of all. Steve says no Russian other stuff seniors. No idea when the season's GonNa Start back up but just to see if in one ever does start back up Like once it's over Harold soon or how quickly tips is back in the NBA. Seems like it's almost at the assuming he doesn't like bomb all the interviews. It seems like it's going to happen. Just like where's the real question at this point so well? I guess they'd will keep our eyes on that. Any sort of updates or anything. We'll have will miss discuss it. And the PODCAST listen But Yeah so. Abbas next break. We'll come back and we'll discuss so the one thing that we've really been able to looking forward to being able to talk about has been the last day in Sacramento and House. He has earned as we all notes ten ports so that got me to thinking of what other things could be ten part documentary Players would stories stuff like that? Could make for Tempur documentaries We're going to come back from this stat. The ones I think could also why Or maybe I feel like nothing's good enough for temporary documentary in that ten parks Should be reserved for only the best of the best motion. Just be making documentaries but anything so as we'll find my opinion right after the break so stay right there.

Bar US MC podcast network. So as we all know the last dance is taking place Episode Seven and eight are going to go down this Sunday so we haven't caught up. Don't know why but if you haven't no judgment I would rather do so before like I said before this Sunday and then OSCE next week will be the last two episodes nine and ten but I know I saw Monday in. We'll Washington touch on this as well. Some other new documentaries are GONNA go to coming out from ESPN Very soon bye. No one one. The idea that was floated out there was like Oh next. Espn MATT thirty. People should do a temporary thing on like I think it was like. Oh Nine Yankees or whatever and I was like first off. There are very few baseball stories if any at all that people would be interested enough to watch temper documentary and I think that's where people need to realize just how impressive you have to be not a ten part documentary. I was discussing this with my father and we were talking. We were talking through a bunch of different like thirty that happened in different athletes and things and they grew. The oil's been anywhere near this long as the Michael Jordan. Doc is the OJ. One and we. I mean if you know the story of Oj. Not not the the Jay Z. Song but like the like the the. Oj store. I guess you think the story Rozier Now OJ store. Then you know art you understand. Why is this was made into a A longer a three hundred thirty in also was adapted for a TV show like a true calm and I think it was American crime Lows the after the people were so jay was this show or the dock slummy them do Latif Pool versus OJ. Simpson was American American crime story season when I think they've done like The lake for Saatchi and like his murders unlike as they've been another couple to rosy yes amount. American crime story has done one on people. Were so deception. They won on Jesus Giovanni Sake The the largest failed manhunt. Us history. They done a bunch different things bs or the people vs day. Simpson was exciting. Ten years ten episodes and so you could argue ten parts But yet again this was I forget this was before or after the thirty for thirty came out but yeah I like I said though the story. That's good enough like they were. There have been even before then. There were those stories and stuff about if they're like army to deep dive into this and they did a very thorough in his very good so but but again with that. You need to have the story. Were-that parcel nine Yankees. I'll have a story with every most ethics on our story that worked at me. I think that's what people hopefully as help. You understand. That like Tampa documentaries are just going to grow on trees another doing a Docu are doing thirty for thirty on the I think I do want like lands on fern coming up soon. They're doing one of the called like long on summer. I believe the title of the Nineteen Ninety Eight home. Run Chase between mcgwire and SOSA COMING OUT IN JUNE. Which quick aside that's weird because a lot of people in baseball writers? Whoever that were fiene won't vote for Barry Bonds into the into the hall of fame but like ESPN is. The company will do like their thirty. All two guys that were like admittedly on steroids while it's happening now did not that. It wasn't entertaining. Why I'm not a big against their words person comes the. Abc made more entertaining Darling semi legal's legal but like if it wasn't But it's illegal sodas what it is of the ESPN will do that again. Like people that work for you. Span morning invoke Famous kind of kind backwards Yeah so it's like that's not worthy of ten parts like I said there's there are very few stories in sports are worthy of ten points and I hope people realize that like this. This thing again with Michael Jordan is a one time maybe two time thing I mean what Kinda got it with. Oj So this may be the second. Thank but like at. This isn't this doesn't just happen. Just make every story ten parts. I now everybody has had enough happy in their career to be worthy of having this much footage refer one being being offered entire season. Very few people are doing that again. Everything will social media has a little bit different The verdict people would have been chosen to do that. A. And then B. Tab enough backstory in different behalf Dr Career to be worthy of filling up the ten episodes who's not like just ten episodes on the ninety seven ninety eight season song it's From what has its purchase on Jordan suddenly supporting characters as that were part of the run like the fails on the Rodman's Scotties in some of the Opponents they went up being the bad boy. Pistons and Knicks cavs. There there are different characters involved here and those stories need to be interesting as well or Like I said the dock doesn't work it's not it's about M J but does not they just about your of delve into Sunday's other characters So like again there that the surrounding piece of needs to be Good enough to be worthy to be told is again told in is time for his most the third. There's a what like one like maybe two hours. They one half hour something around that. If you're if you're lucky and you're like Michael Vick who had an interesting enough story. Many because you want the jail which debatable if he should have. But we'RE NOT GONNA get into that People kill humans and get less jail time than That got so just Bigger so Yes he was a guy that is playing career college and improve in the pros warranted that but also again the jail things a big part of the story. You could get to separate the for two hours each on two separate weeks like you get that from him. You can probably get that out of Another time do documentary Kobe. Last season out. It was different. Because he's not here. Are I PICO Again like a lot of the contract and stuff kidding is aided and it. It's this join can add a lot. The documentary himself also. You won't have that. We're coach out to make it difficult. But even even if he were around again he's a smart guy he can talk a lot. He can explain things I don't if he's worthy of ten part on Lebron be worth a ten part dock. One of the biggest if not the debate athlete in the World Right now. I mean. He hadn't have enough going on. He does he have the you'd never tyrant he doesn't have like some of the the gambling scandals the the the turmoil between him in. Cranston the last blast the answering again. Have THAT NUKES GROSS? He has a lot of great moments in the memorable moments has done some great things off the court. But I mean what's the what's the turmoil the reason for his doctors because all more or less built up around that last season I was eating. It allows you to hire other things that happened but does the backup is just like everything. They went through that season. Obviously the bright onto a lot in his career. But does he have that some career back over you can do it on the case of his career. And if that's the case I mean is going to be multiple parts can be Ted. You don't does not have suffer ten poorest and that's that's okay that's fine like Aleka I think the two athletes currently you could do a ten part documentary on are probably Tiger Woods again. Just HIS RISE. His his peak. That was better than you could argue. Many people have ever been any sport as a whole in the history of the world when he was at the top. And it's like how dominic he was competitors peers than the drop off with all scandal and Gino's wife and breaking the car window like having to rehabilitate his image and all that stuff and then coming back from that and are seeking just winning the masters last year. Some Louise Beckwith Talk Again. Obviously with and then you before all the surgeries and injuries and stuff. He went through in order to even get back in order to be able to play golf. Aside from the whole personal side of things. Just be able to physically be able to play golf again like I said that's something and then I guess also maybe some of his family staffer on that something. I'd watch ten points on. I think you have enough material fourteen parts on if you wanted to do it though again. The they're aided in the fact they. This is temporary by all the exclusive footage they have of that last season specifically I helps and also I just the only other the only other person person for people that I would see like the the Williams sisters of being sense arena. This again dislike. What the how their dad prepared them for. Ferrari greatness as young people. Now see the success that they've had both together and separately in their careers announced the different things they'd gone through in order to reach that they've been to and have been able to say there for quite a quite a long period of time. James supposedly like Serena obscene. But I didn't it. You'd be remiss to leave US outside. Would so those bumps in Think about I want you all to think about different athletes. Different sports stories. That have happened the last twenty years. Which one of them do you think is interesting enough to you ten parts. Could we think about? It's really not that many thanks. Michael Vick is one of the more interesting. Sports Stories are sports careers of my lifetime at the very least and he could only get four hours and legal micah lay. They left this other. Nope it was like our uniform is good. It would have been too for two hours. Blake foreign way all right. That sounds like the right. Amount of time might brightly Buyers Brady No. They've maybe new Brady and Belichick even after the little dicey because doesn't really give that much at least now an episode. He won't and that kind of setting but like Jerry speaking very much and I mean Tom. Liberally like a big elaborate speaker. So how will that be Even then like people don't Wanna see success lay tied-in scandals in whatever But I mean the and brush aside at this point. People just remember championships. Like third are are is not just a success story. There's like a rise and fall and bumps in the road between like I mean what real bumps in the road? They had like the little scandals here on there been able to overcome and then when through make the biggest the biggest the worst thing happened to them is them losing after being eighteen season. Like realistically like all the other scandals. Or whatever like spy gate deflate gate and stuff like that that was bad but it was like He could come back and that kind of stuff and they have come back from people me and I remember that and how many ever years later apple neutral people really care. Maybe not so yeah. It's just like how many sports people can do. Ten parts is want people to remind her that. Like what we're watching is a once. Maybe twice in a lifetime kind of thing where you have the athlete that was big enough noteworthy enough and had to career enough to be able to discuss at length for this long and that's completely fine. People needed rather like one. Deborah argument is a lot sit down and wash like like watching ten hours on Michael Jordan. The Bulls and stuff is a lot again. I didn't I was not allowed near the time for me to learn and I knew something such as from being sports fan but was offering me to learn but just like as as a total sit down five separate weeks at for two hours at a time to watch the same person not necessarily same story because they're adding to the story every week by telling you things like the same general premise week after week after week is uncommon especially in terms of documentaries for sports. Mainly thirty usually one off. You may be like a two night thing. If you're lucky they mostly things are three four or five parts the OJ was like I. It was like four or five and then this one's internally four or five episodes aired episode slots I should say and the Germans like four or five episodes lasted ten ten parts. But it's like it's like five our box what I'm saying. I think the only things but again it made sense See just like when you think about that. Like oh look what's up. They could do look even Lance Armstrong. Do on him. He's not an naked. He's been to a lot in terms of his career. Our temperatures not even close. No one cares that much. That'd be given care about Steven case that much less temporary. I promise you I can promise you that. GonNa be really good if you don't know the future zone but if you do Shot to get Bso Just like when? I was like what things would. I WANNA watch. Temp- documentary on from the Sports World Second. There's not that many William Sisters debris might be a ten points late in now and that's completely fine. We can reserve ten parts. The exclusive for the stuff deserves To Force it on Yankee send now. You're just some not whole going on right now but nobody's GonNa Watch ten ten hours on that that yet. He's the Mike. I'm sorry good. Good team wanted one world series off on stuff but no not that much is i. Don't McDougal's follow? Like I said maybe I actually think about us of your warm. Welcome to reach out to us but Cameron under the PODCAST. The reach us on social media. Tell us what stories whereas in Athletic Negroes was FG athlete or a specific swore story. Whatever you think could or good enough for as neff information for ten dollars lower like I said I only thinks that many. Maybe I'm missing. Something am more have been wrong before I will. I will probably be wrong again. If you have an idea reach out to us that we would be happy here and we all would be happy to hear but have this last week or to come back and we're going to discuss something else as on twitter. This was the US always on Tuesday with the best number five in college football. I think it's mainly just like recently 'cause I was like gotta be some great number five some back in the day that I wouldn't know too much about but I think the picture that they thought they posted a tweet. It out was all recent guys so I will based on research Last like fifteen twenty years So yeah we'll talk about the grades on five hundred. Give my opinion who it is. It collect obvious but not everybody feels the same way so we will discuss it. Rafters break stay right there out build around the women from the UFC INVICTA Delatour won championship. We got the fights cover. It's the golden state media concepts women's MMA PODCAST. The latest news of coming flights discussions of previous matches joining us as we talked to about the biggest names in women's mixed martial arts past present and future when it's the women's fight game you know where to listen to the golden state media concepts women. Summa may podcast Our cat he network so from the official Fox. Football count on twitter. Tweet out this Throughout this picture Around like five. Pm on Tuesday and was like who was the best college who was the best player in corporate history to wear number five then the picture. I can't so I don't. I don't know that this Miami running back is. I don't think it wasn't McKay Or THEY PORTS MADE. You might have one of those do not censor what is like Donovan. Abb Christian McCaffrey. Lt Pat White shot to him he was God and old. Ncaa Games if you know you know The Football Games obviously Jamie's Reggie Bush. Mankato whatever I mean should have been Darren McFadden on this somewhere but I'll get passed it But yesterday got me thinking I got who would I take now? I feel like I know why we take. But that's just because he was one of if not my favorite player to watch in Gospel during childhood. So you know intended by but run through the steps just there just to be so I would go through Lt. I know he's little bit older. So Elsie had two solid seasons. Is I two years in a second than his junior senior year? Junior he had almost two thousand yards a little under two thousand yards twenty touchdowns and then his senior year. He came back with twenty one. Fifty eight twenty two touchdowns and he didn't we do receive kinda crazy. 'cause he did a lot receiving In the pros but he saw so he won. He was all American Senior Year Dog Walker Award winner for like the best running back senior year and won the whack off player of the year both his junior and his senior season he finished first in the NCAA rushing yards in in two thousand and was first in his conference Nineteen ninety nine I in rush attempts in two thousand and ninety nine in the whack into news also I in the NCAA rushing attempts yards from scrimmage. He was first his his senior year. For senior touchdown. Sponsors for he was first in the whack both Osias news third in the NCAA respectively both of those years So yeah just like I said great all around 'cause player nothing knock him for at all finished what he finished fourth in the NCAA. Voting UNITED THE HEISMAN. Voting that year I'm trying to see single season in college rushing leaders trying to see what the single season record. Oh while he wasn't even that close Is Way Way Way? Way Way down the list and I know Bryce love had gone to complete for our see whereas man I run. A lot of people ran for over his funny one so he's Temple Time. Tuesday not bad for single season. Recently the only guy was Williams at Boston College. What a what a name for. The history books of Mobile Gordon could argue the record for Barry Sanders yet over. Twenty six hundred yards which is absurd Especially during that five even more so now slowly after. Lt Do it. Roger Williams Jonathan Taylor from Wisconsin Derrick Henry or sharp penny was interesting one Kevin Smith of UCF forgot about him. That's another flashing a pastor. Melvin Gordon from Wisconsin to couple Wisconsin guys over visa Rushing yards all time season hard to argue with that but My argument could be for guys like I mean. Also James was great because he won a heisman trophy and the National Championship. But this day was Kinda short lived debris last that long and in my opinion so in terms of guys outside of him. You have a guy like my boy pat white. Who kind of showed you. What Oregon look like before Oregon was Oregon? Now I understand the the passing yards inspectors. That's aren't really that great. He only the most sessions through four twenty one. Which was a senior season enough. Kind of why you didn't make it on the Wasn't that good passer But I guess what what was the best year I be used wearing the second round so ties. Hasn't Brian was two thousand seven? We finished sixth Theon seventy had only the ball about two hundred times. Sixty seven percent of his passes pretty good for seventeen twenty four fourteen touchdowns foreign exceptions but on the ground added a whopping thirteen thirty five and fourteen touchdowns he also had twelve nineteen in eighteen touchdowns rushing as a sophomore to go along with thirteen touchdowns savings option so he was Alex. I'd use NCA football. God Him I think he was there he would like now. Tehran was awesome. No he was he. This was the I'm trying to see which which which team was. This was the Who was this was the SLEIGH and cicely Noel Devine teams? It was nice to back the day over with notable. What you said I mean Pat. Connor was the first quarterback. He's put West Virginia School presented. GonNa put whether junior on the map and kind of I mean. They've been kind of trying to catch a play relevancy but like he was the first guy to come like. I said to to kind of supplant that also be like the I mean. I don't that quarterback obviously but as far as this new spread generation. I I could argue again. I'm like I said I'm a little bit younger. Maybe Order Guy. That may not remember minute. Braxton too I don't he should not have been included at all. I mean that is what it is But I mean pat why he went four known bowl games to known. Bcs Bowl Games. Which was great again. Like I said his passing numbers weren't great but is rushing Yards were amazing. If our McCoy retrospective he can put the Big East on his back. came in West Virginia kind of put the bees on their back during that time period. And like I said. Connor initiated the zone. Read offense into into college and then again it's just continued to been replicated since then like I said he was. They were running with. Oregon runs now or organ county before Oreo was doing. They were kind of like the innovators are the four. Or five of it if you will and kind of made it a thing that people are doing today look got more Jackson other guys that have come come through the. They're doing a lot of those same concepts that wants to gain your counterpart popularized and made prominent football deep. Were not stealing or copying. But it's just like you see something you want to replicate Pat White and in his time which was the. I was kind of the pioneers. You could sack of that side of the football and like great at it. And he was great so he's another one on argument. I want to look up. Darren McFadden's numbers soup. Before I get to the gangway think should should be should be the guy to get to that to Darren McFadden Pretty good only lasted three years. Every European yards is due. He had eighteen thirty and sixteen touchdowns sophomore year at sixteen forty seven fourteen touchdowns during lunch receiving which is. Kinda weird because he he threw capacity having Jones together in back the wildcat before August. You call the wild boar time. Second heisman voting in two thousand six and in two thousand seven choice. Yes I forgot. He went and he lost ten people. So again to solid solid choices to say the least on hard argue against those yellows heismans precise especially at the time hit that. So the remember. Imagine Kevin Smith a couple years ago from. Ucf Gosh say the year he ran for over for two thousand five hundred six seven yards in twenty nine dusty. Finish in the highland running absurd via the coal brandon Tibo chase the time is what it is yes a Democrat. Another great guy ushered in the wildcat generally end up working but he did it. Well my guy the guy who arguably the most electrifying player in district football one of my all time great players none other than Reggie Bush his best ever. I mean his junior year. The on two hundred carries he had seventeen seventeen hundred forty yards eight yards per attempt. Sixteen touchdowns also caught three seven balls or four hundred. Seventy eight yards and two more touchdowns Let me see what what he did as a At a power touchdown senior year I mean had over four return touch during his career had over. I guess what so if you include. That had four at three head over forty two touchdowns with his night that much running back to get. He was WANNA heisman out at the reputation which is hard to do beat Ventiaan even though I guess because he had to give it back he went Osmond. I don't care what he wanted. You have to get a bag of you very whatever but beat up Vince. Young and beat out his own teammate. Line Readout Brady Quinn Who I mean Ashley. When this list names looking very shaky at the next level but eight is what it is. This isn't this isn't pros college. And I think what was the one game was a fresno state might believe that season where he had like five hundred yards of total offense or a five hundred dollar per show or something like that. They just absurd. I'm trying to find them. Initially a game remember October going to remember here so treasure state a late season the ran twenty three times. Two hundred ninety four yards two touchdowns had six yards receiving an had Seven kick returns for hundred and thirty five total yards and upon return. Sixteen just measure. I mean this week after five to six years grabbing at UCLA media one of the most. Let's find players remember The had ricotta hit the first ever seen so by somebody. Who's a down? The left sideline Juice the jukes baggy against smoking sub cuts fueled the lead in the third quarter. Kinda seal the game off One of my favorite players ever to watch some popular but he doesn't have the accumulation of of black stats is like said. Damn Fan slows. That's probably greater. Not they are greater but he also talked in the backfield so not necessarily his fault on and also like I said they had met line who won the highest like the year before I think the you before he wanted and they won two national championships during his on their loss in the in the championship. Game of the third one. Let me great career. I don't care if you have to get the house back you still want. You can't bet that counts on his resume amazing Us One piece of aware like the one white ours leaves the Allen Iverson had made it popular basketball but I remember he was in that game is somehow like his sleet like his arm. Like I guess he's running under armor Nike. Whatever and arms leave under. His Shirk? Must've been a little chilly Up there in some as California and he got ripped off running with one arm and I thought it was like the coolest thing ever as a kid and I remember. I used to wear my rubber addressees. I would wear them with one with only one sleeve. Down like out obviously So Exhibit Museum Despise. But I would. I would say that I put my money on. Reggie Bush being the best number five in conflict three because one winning the heisman winning two national championships making third They won't like thirty four straight games or whatever. It was While what did during his time Usc On legs at five hundred totally all-purpose our performance in Fresno state that great still impressive Like I said just one of like one of the guys when he got the ball in his hand you enemies lot of guys that that happens in College. Football like he was one was a two thousand five hundred sixty. It wasn't really like it's not like it's not now when you see guys like when the Mardasson had the ball a lot of other traffic who else even guys like Randy Issue Tuba Hubbard whenever you have to worry like. Oh we break one for the touchdown lead. There's been a lot of guys that have been electrifying allergy. I still contend that attempt. He was the best player in God. Football History Modern history. I can't like I said I'm going going back into in Kohl's office is hard to do. Want to is one of the sophomore one after ship to after tension say Andrews the jump pass to the game and had the great. I promise speech like he's done a lot But Reggie Bush is up there for me towards best college players. I've ever see the reason. Why number two running back? This is before people's ideas But still want. I'm to abroad that it was legitimate. Casey number one over memorial that year to the Texans everyone. Yeah no I. Completely get is the best player. God football right now. I got like I was the the most. He's also Beth very rarely. Does that do to things Mary? You've got to be the most fine but you're not at the best. You dislike. Arvin blogging your great so same thing more in Lamar Jackson a couple years. Oh He's the most electrifying and also the best then arguably again arte after the defense guide that was good or whatever but obviously there was no bios better than am I saying it was like a cool merited that like when the electrify the when electric playground also be skilled enough to be called the best angry. Bush was the first guy for that for me for my for my view he was like wow like i. Every time he touch the ball thought he was going to score. That's Jimmy especially at junior year is like you were shocked that he didn't he didn't he wasn't breaking this Ron Lake. It's grown on like twenty thirty yard. You're like how did that not break? Need any look. Cool doing enough that that adds to it. Look doing bass just like in my whole. You gotta literally here that you look good in your not just like Destin sports if you look at that person looks good as they do like mahomes looks great but also he has armed. Rmc of any other thing like lt looked looked. I was good. Well said let the dark visor like the you. Can we look doing it just adds to it? In my opinion it's not every not necessarily football on on the field day with Disley. The visual of it makes it look. That's I'm saying Alan Iverson. That's what ours even people do still have. Rmc Ted's days because Alison did it. It looked cool and he was also good so the guy that belongs Yvonne So Yeah You're you're more into debate. This I like I said there are definitely people that have a case and wanted case. Outside of Reggie Bush again Reggie. Bush gets my vote. Personally this for a team success for his own individuals says again. Don't carry at the House back. He wanted you. Can't you can't tell me. Did Not get across his name out on costs for references. It's it is. It's the gambling together back. They would have to come and take that out my house. I promise you Good for him. He's a good guy. But yeah now do for me here today on.

Tell me who the best number. Five is incontrovertible. If you don't think it's Reggie Bush like I said that's fair. There are many people with a worthy case you can tell me about what the enforcing most about the Korean baseball organization. Tom If you think he should come back and maybe I don't know everybody has their opinion also to like I said. Tell me what sports stories are happy. You think would you are the temp dot? Because I really think it's very few and I think people are the kind of bring these things up like ten parts a lot of there's to cut out to make it ten parts. Let the footage you leave it like. I think like what what story would be worthy of that much footage and is not because it does not that many there isn't but I'm more mucking here dot ones you guys.

Apparently, we need to do some regulate I've been told and he is the commission of this league. So let's bring in special guest. We've got a special regulators message from Matt from city outside of the jersey shore. Live with us. And he let him tell the story. And then I will regulate I talked a little smack about me off the air. Jamie's that right? And you say he said something he wa I thought he was going to tweet you actually. So I don't know if you actually did or did he just didn't respond. Oh, wow. Sorry. Did I want even before we get to that? What is what needs to be regulated coca? Okay. So I'm gonna dynasty league in ID dynasty league Adam's Adam's aware of this league. Because we share team together. We don't really coca get a little closer to the mic, my friend. All right. I'm up in the Mike. It's raining bowls. So I'm in this league on Wednesday, I propose the trade to Mr. heath comings, and the trade was Frank gore. Fourth round pick next year for Andy Dalton because he has three quarterbacks. I only Matt Ryan he's on a BI well on Thursday. I didn't get a notification about the trade actually going through. But it did go through. So Andy Dalton was on my bench. And I started Brock Osweiler. So please help me out here. When did you notice it coca this morning when I came into work? Okay. All right, guys. Heath. What are you going to do is bitch? Well, I went I went through and Schick to make sure that there were no bugs in the system. And I just went to my Email, and I searched yolo because the name of the league is the yellow dynasty league. And I saw that I received an Email at four fifty three pm yesterday saying that team coca and team Patrick is Mahomes had completed a trade. And yeah, the only regulation here is I'm sorry. You don't pay attention to your team. Yeah. Well, hold on. Hold on. What time did you start your work yester-? What time? What time yester- anytime you start today yesterday? I get to the office at four AM for him. So you leave working with them at one PM and you typically go to sleep one at eight pm. Okay. I thought usually asleep. Sorry, JV poke the hold your your theory. I I don't see more of a nap. Because Jamie knows that I'm a big Napper for the afternoon. I liked to nap I can't support produce the F F T show on CBS sports age queue. So I thought that out of the kindness of Heath's heart, which now I realize he doesn't have one. Actually, I usually agree with you. I think he's just using his brain on this. What I say no to coca Dave, Jamie. What do you think? I'd like to know Matt do you have the notifications for the league turned off or do you have a special spam? Folder that maybe his his aunt. I will guarantee you. I don't even know what Email those Goto because that's what I hear from so many people. No, it goes to my CVS. It would go to my CBS's mail. And I'm going to after I'm out of here. I'm gonna go check my Email to make sure that there is no notification there, and if there isn't then what hap- grow you gotta set your lineup before the game starts. I think I think the decision for this should come down to your opponent. And if your opponent decides that. I can't wait for the segments on Monday and Wednesday when he is back on F T. Now, this is going to be produced. All right. He lay it down lay down the law. What's the decision? Regulate. I made it clear when I started this league that this was this is gonna be ruled that iron fist and you're supposed to try it fantasy football. And you didn't try and so- Brock Osweiler will work. Oh, man. You should've started Danny amendola quarterback. When this because I'm in first place in that league. Well, then you don't need. It coca. Thank you for joining us. Matthew coca talks about the off the air? And now everything has been regulated. All right. Both prediction guys that. I don't really know if I believe it. But I wanna see if maybe you guys believe it. So here it is. It's Aaron Jones week believe it or not. All of us now made this bold prediction at one time or another made it two or. Made it two or we'd all love for it to be Jones week, and it is Jones week as soon as Mike McCarthy decides it's Jones week. But I don't know. I'd like to know the inside information you have that Mike McCarthy's going to to use running correctly. Oh, yeah. Simple. The lions did it after thereby. So the Packers are going to do it after there's. I like it. Yeah. Now, you actually might be the the Rams that's their opponent. They see the second fewest rush attempts per game in the NFL. It doesn't set up to be a game where they're running out the clock or anything like that. So maybe it's not Aaron Jones week. What do you guys think? How many carries does? He does. He get twelve carries. I'm gonna say, no. How many games does even have twelve carries? I don't think he's done it. Maybe one maybe zero believe love Mex. So where do we rank Aaron Jones this week? So I think I've got him thirty seven and non PBR and forty one and PR. Twenty-eight non PR nothing somewhere in the thirties in people. Yeah. I'm the high guy. I technically have met twenty four. I don't know why it's not it's it's partially because I just can't stand running back this week. And there's a lot of guys. Just don't feel good about starting. It's about it. There is an article though, that I read in the Wisconsin state journal that apparently the Packers want to try and get their running him going coming out of the bye. See toga and in the article that's specifically says it should mean. More carries for Aaron Jones. But it's only part of the equation already guys would be a little gutsy maybe but high upside play to start Aaron Jones in fan lineup fan dot com slash f f t joined that league about twelve hundred spots available. Well, we've got a few hundred that have already entered so not filling up but fan dot com slash f f t got time to enter make sure you listen to our Saturday mailbag winsor a bunch of your questions, and you can Email us, of course, fantasy football CBS.

Fantasy football Houston forty two and Miami Twenty-three didn't really look like a significant knee injury for willfuller. But they are fearing a torn ACL fuller has now caught eleven touchdowns in eleven career games with two Shawn Watson he had a great game. This. This actually was a borderline bonanza. Question qualified. But what hap- what is what happens? Shawn. Shawn Watson value. Pardon me. If fours out for the year. I don't know that it affects it too much long as Kikuchi gets back soon. They have Denver next week right at Denver at Denver to buy and then a buy so. Watson, of course with the big game. And he was started in seventy percent of leaks. So people did sit him. Any other takeaways? What do you think about Lamar Miller right now? I think he like watching his benefiting from a improving offense of line, and they're they're making just enough room for him to barrel through and pick up some decent yardage and the Texans. Want to be a team that certainly this will sound a little funny at least balanced or if not a little bit more run Centric as great of a game as Watson had you only attempted twenty passes in the game. And it was competitive for a while. I'm I'm I'm cautiously optimistic that Miller's going to continue to get a decent workload yet. And for Watson. I mean, it's three straight games with twenty four or fewer or twenty five or fewer pacits. That's not shown every four throws against Miami. Do you look at this game? Like, all right. They've played a team that just really struggles defensively and could be inflating the value of some Texans not named Hopkins. It's possible. I think I think it's pretty clear that the dolphins defense really is very bad. Yeah. I don't think you should let this game fixture. Long-term feelings about the Texans too much. Right. It's more about the dolphins. Your long-term feeling on the more Miller, you think you can rely on him. A no absolutely next week Denver's things. Let's see that didn't didn't work out last week. That's because they played Mike McCoy that is true. All right. How about Kenyan Drake? Twelve carries fifty yards and a touchdown. He caught a touchdown from Danny amendola. You can't really sit here and say you got a bench. Frank Gore's Frank was doing well, do you think Drake has a big second half in him? No good second-half not gonna. Yeah. Like, I feel like we got a little lucky with this game. I had them right to the top twenty four running back. I thought he'd be good. I didn't think he'd had multiple scores. Like this. I thought he'd catch the ball a lot more. He only two grabs the gave him the damn bowl. It's. It's crazy, but gore is running. Well, they both had twelve carries. Heath. Are you excited about devante Parker? Six catches one hundred thirty four yards on nine targets. Fifteen percent owned. Let's see what roster. He's on next week. There's definitely a case to be made. If stills remains out Wilson's going to be out that Parker could put up. Good numbers. Yes. He had what forty six yards or something on that deflected ball? But he also was wide open for what could have been a sixty six yard touchdown pass us wiler missile Hosoi. There was bad yesterday. So parker. I'm sure we'll be a waiver wire topic next week with the jets and then at Green Bay those those are their next two games. Those could be nice matchups amendola too. He had six targets five catches forty three yards. And you did get lucky with dole. The if you were one of the fourteen percent of our owners who started him twenty eight yard touchdown pass for him. All right. I think that's it Houston forty two Miami twenty three and we will hope for the best will fuller, but that really stinks. A lot of stuff to get today under own alert. I got some players that are under owned. I think anyway, you tell me if you agree the Redskins DST fifty five percent own top twelve for all of you top eight for two of you. They got the giants. You can use the Redskins in a pinch. Right. Definitely. Okay. Redskins DS's under on how about Rahim Oester. Fifty fifty-one percent owner see under owned way. Obviously look at the next three matchups this week at Arizona doesn't look like breed is gonna play Oakland. Then the giants. Yeah. Yeah. How about Ronald Jones? Forty six percent is he under owned? Yeah. Right. Not as much as most is eight and Barbara Becker practice yesterday. Right. Jones is back to being no better than a stash candidate. And how about Geronimo Alison sixty nine percent owned? That's one that needs to go up. Yeah. We did miss one thing from last night's game. Thomas de'andre Hopkins out beco-, gelling Odal. Yeah. I think they Adra Hopkins is the best in football at making tough catches. That was incredible course mad that. It didn't kill. Actually thought Howard did a pretty good job on him. I mean, the the I wasn't on Howard. Right. And the second touchdown. Was you know, what that's basically what he did to. Jalen Ramsey the week before only abuse Ramsey even worse than he did to Howard. So good job by xavien Howard. But there's only so much. Are you are you giving out participation trophies on the podcast? No, sure. It was nice of you. All right. So Toronto Alison sixty nine percent owned. He had sixty four to eighty yards in each game. He caught two touchdowns in those first four games. He only played four games sixty four to eight yards and he will face the Rams this week. Yeah. I think his own percentage is pretty close to it. Start percentage should be. Yeah. I news notes for you. The Jaguars will be without three Cornerbacks this week Ramsey will play but their depleted the secondary de move. Carson Wentz up this week. No, I'm already moved him in. He's still in my top twelve. So no Allen Robinson MS practice again with a groin injury. Do you think Robinson sits this week? We'll find out today. If he does sit the move Trubisky down. No, not really hasn't been a big part of the game. Right. It's come up with a couple of touchdowns. I think two of the three games Trubisky been hot. I. I four yard catch. And I was it wonder if you know how Dave feel like John Ross makes any Dalton better. Just by being on the field. Sure. Maybe it's I you know, I could see that being the case if Robinson doesn't play. Trubisky dumb. What's the drop off? And let's just be honest about it. What's the drop off from Allen Robinson to Kevin white now in fantasy? It's no one's gonna start. Kevin white. It's probably pretty, but as far as how you defend him. And how you defend the rest of this bears offense. Does it really change much? Yes. I think so you do you think? So I think it shifts more coverage the Anthony Miller and Gabriel in Britain. Maybe to Recode gets a little more involved, Royce Freeman as a chance to play at Kansas City and be surprised that Brita we expect him to sit right? Yes. All right. We got a new offense coordinator for Arizona. Byron left, which he says he wants to use David Johnson differently. Like Bruce Arians used to use him, and he wants to get Larry FitzGerald more involved. I I could have written those quotes before he said them. Let's see if Byron left which comes through. Don't know if Damon Harrison is going to play for the lions they have the worst run defense in the NFL. Arguably Harrison Harrison is scheduled to play seventeen games this season. Now since the lines already had their by. So they could sit him this week Marlin MAC did not practice. Do we think more of the MAC plays this week? Yeah. You got to look and see what the report says on Friday. Yeah. Because he was a partial practice, and then downgraded you don't like it. When guys move the wrong way. It's amazing. It's like last week. And yes, I shake my head. I'm so upset about this this like he's got a by next week. Then schedule gets tougher this sucks. This is a perfect time to play Marlin MAC, especially with running backs on by and rob gronkowski was limited in practice. So he's trending in the right direction. Do you expect these guys Chris Thompson at the giants? Yes. Leshan McCoy Monday. Yes. Paid-in Barbara at Cincinnati. Yes. Jack Doyle at Oakland. Yes. Okay. So let's go back to macro quick Naim high. Maybe could be good again. Okay. I think that's the go-to. I will look up if I don't have him. He's my top ten, but I'll move him up if Mackrell better for because I can't run without MAC. So as we've gotten through basically a week, we could save this to Saturday if you want, but I wanted your like final overall thoughts on the waiver wire running backs who stands out as the best one. Most are. Yeah. Chardon PR. Okay. I agree with both of those things and Kenyan Barnard too. And still potential Chris ivory, right? Seem like it though. I think that devante Booker underrated and PR. Okay. Here's a quick segment. People are worried about a few studs. And I wanna know if you guys share those concerns people are worried about Odal Beckham and to a lesser degree saquon Barkley it p. P if feels like he's going to get benched at some point. And I get the Beckham concerned concerns. How about you? The only thing I'd be worried about is does ally. Manning's replacement throw a poor past fifteen yards. Downfield manage replacement is Kyle leda who has very little arm strength. Apparently. He's a cerebral guy. He's not a big arm. I shouldn't say he has very little arm strength. But I think that's a weakness of his would would that quarterback change happen at the very end of the year, though. Are you worried about Becca? Leta wasn't ready in LA Letta. Didn't have that type of arm strength that could really threaten the teams that they play. I mean, instead of speculating, I just do you think that the Beckham owner should be looking to sell now? I don't I'm not selling Beckham or Barclay. I understand why anyone might want to. And I don't think it's unreasonable. I just you make sure that you're selling high like you couldn't be selling any higher Berkeley. Okay. And Todd Gurley people read about Todd Gurley. They think he's going to sit in the fantasy playoffs. I think the championship game is the only thing you have to worry about because their last two games against air Zona in San Francisco, and they could have a two game lead in the division. And we know Sean McVay has no issue. Resting guys. You want him chasing records. Yeah. I'm afraid. He could sit the second half of weeks teen. Do they have a two-game lead on the conference? Because that's the only thing you're hoping chasing records in Seattle's cheering for Green Bay. Sure. Yeah. New Orleans is five and one Rams are seven. No. There are some two loss teams in their Gooding Washington. Minnesota Green Bay. Yeah. I response is like no don't don't trade girly at that. With the thought of that happening to pick up, Malcolm Brown. Can you drop the Rams DST? They got the Packers this week at New Orleans then Seattle than at Kansas City. And then there by. For sure. All right. We got the start. Oh, meter for a few players in one of those games. That will preview later we got beat the waiver wire, then we'll get into the games, but he has been into the game.

Using the Lincoln the promo code provided in the episode description play now really fun game getting me back into video games. And in the spirit of a battle royale gonna talk about four quarterbacks that are ranked similarly who wins the battle royale guys, Andrew luck at Oakland Jared Goff against Green Bay Ben Rothlisberger against Cleveland or Andy Dalton against Tampa Bay. Who wins the better outlook Goff big banner? Dalton. Luck. I'll start by saying that they're all top ten quarterbacks. But luck is one. I liked even with Marla Mak playing Marlowe max out of love lock. I'll go with Big Ben against Cleveland to Lux, okay, thought, maybe more spread out. All right. Big Big Ben for heath to Lux. Where's luck for you? Heath in this ranking of four is currently last go been Andy, Gough luck. Okay. Start meters. Zero to ten how anxious are you to start? These guys. Euro is no way ten is must start in every league. Geronimo allison. Six six six Rehim Moster, satanic Nobrega eight. Seven six so you would you start most over Alison, yes. Not in PR, George Kittle. Ten ten eleven David Johnson ten nine. Eight and a half, Larry FitzGerald. For five three. Christian kirk. Five three who do you like better Kirker fits fits Kirk slightly? I have them back tobacco believe, and I would say Kirk, but just barely sneak preview at the stat of the game for AirAsia and San Francisco last game will preview today. Seven wide receivers have had eight or more targets against the forty Niners. Six of those seven have scored double digit fantasy points at non-pwi are the only exception being the miserable. Keenan Allen who now have on our team instead of T Y Hilton. Why is that significant because Larry Cheryl this head eight or more targets into streak apes? So hopefully, he can get to double digit fantasy points. All right. Let's beat the waiver wire with Remo Sturt being an absolute must most at. He's fifty one percent owned. He's good match-ups coming up including this week. I also would like to throw Cortlandt Sutton's name in there. Are you guys going to be looking to pick him up? No, I have him on a roster to already. Yeah. You know? Maybe it's like I'd like to have him on a on a roster to just in case. Alfred Morris guys is there any interested in him both this week and they've got a Thursday game against Oakland. Coming up. We go cert-. But what about Alf? He's gotta have on your bench. It's dependent point of having him on the bench. They this week. They come out. And it turns out they don't wanna give more than nine carries in a game. And L S fifteen is. There is a potential outcome to be completely honest. I would give a few more carries to mow and a few fewer carry. But like, I don't think this is going to be Moster as in every damn back by any stretch. I think they're going to split and alpha a goal line guy. But I think if you start him you're saying, all right. He's going to give me a touchdown and thirty forty yards and the ceiling is ten fantasy points. It's not the best beat the waiver wire. But Joe flacco against Pittsburgh. He's fifty three percent owned twenty-six fantasy points in the first meeting guys wouldn't mind. Could you take a look just tell me who who are which around buying week? I know it's tough. I need a one by NATO one. We've got Amazon AirAsia Jacksonville. Philadelphia. Really cincinnati. Indianapolis the giants. Those are the sec. Yeah. I saw one of my leagues, and I don't like it. But I like the matchup Alex Smith is available. He's seventy something percent on they get the falcons. He was the second guy was going. I was gonna say flacco against Pittsburgh and Alex Smith against Atlanta. Are there any Redskins wide receivers that you'd want their anyone's that are healthy, Paul Richardson? Baby. Geronimo Alison we talked about. And I think it's really tough to find a speculative DST if you look at next week's schedule because like the bills are playing Chicago everybody owns them Oakland at San Francisco is the Thursday night. Game about the jets jets for sure I don't think you wanna start. Differences with the jets that got the dolphins. Yeah. And then the bills of you on a two week window for the jets. It's not a bad speculative situation. Okay. I got a receiver. That's beat the waiver war guy who Martavis. And you know, you sit someone last week that I think it's still apply in Christian Kirk. He wasn't great last week by any means. But it wasn't terrible. No. He what six started. Sometimes the two jets running backs trend cannon Elisa McGuire again, they get Miami next week. If something happens to Crowell in this week's game canon could be a star. And Maguire may get activated to Kirk is out there in sixty percent of fantasy leagues. I haven't made this point yet I've been meaning to but this year, maybe I have made this point year of the handcuff these backup running back they're stepping in. And they have been outstanding. So it is time. If you've got a roster spot to play with handcuff Todd early handcuff Kareem hunt. I don't know about Zeke. But and I don't think Barclay you should handcuff James Connor with Levy on Bill. That'd be going hiccups been amazing this year. So, you know, could could help you win some leaks. Let's go to the games. Here we go. And at some point we'll pick a bonanza New Orleans is that Minnesota. I don't think this will be the one stat of the game the saints allow the second fewest fantasy points to running backs and two point eight yards per carry two running backs. We'll take Murray. Heavy third straight. Good game. Good. Yes. Great now. I think by default. He's number two fantasy running back toward the low end. And it's because of the touches that he's wanting to get in the potential to score touchdown. So would you start Moster over him? If breed is out. I would not. Feels risky. Yeah. There's probably a higher ceiling for him if everything works out, but it's a big literally back to back in my rankings. I've got Maria spot ahead. Who do you have a head Mark Ingram or the tavis Murray? Literally back to back in my rankings Ingram one spot ahead Murray from me Murray for me. All right. So Murray you can start. He's not a great start. There's anger, right? Certainly not strew. New Orleans has allowed thirty six or more receiving yards? Two four running backs in their last four games. I don't know if you're gonna get that from Murray. Why don't we go to the saints? I come back to Vikings. Drew brees. I went back and looked at his primetime road games. Each of the last four years. This. Let's say the last two seasons have been very good nineteen seventeen and twenty fantasy points in three primetime road games including last month last year, Monday night or at Minnesota scored seventeen fantasy points starter sit breeze. Is your roads? Playing and is Everson Griffen. Playing. Tell me give me the if they're in if they're out scenarios. I I am not expecting roads to play that obviously helps I don't know about Griffin. But he's their best pass rusher. And if he's not playing than Brees was going to have time to throw against a depleted defensive backfield. And I would love starting him in that situation. I've got Brees right in that range to where you can't really say stored in or sit him I sort him over wince Cam Wilson Stafford I would sit him for Andy, Winston luck Trubisky. I mean, he's just right in the middle. I wouldn't make a transaction to pick another quarterback. Where do you get off being on a first name basis with Andy Dalton me? Yeah. I've written many kind things you just traded him in my career. I just traded him to a first place team to give a chance to win a championship. You've made a break. Four nola. Start Brock Osweiler overhead the way that wasn't really a great trade. I have Patrick Mahomes, Kirk cousins in antidote really a fourth round will fourth round pick. I'm happy with that. No one's going to anything for dole. I could've just dropped him. All right so breeze. It's like we're not thrilled about starting him. But if Griffin and roads are out does Brees all of a sudden become like a great start. Yes. I probably won't move in very much. I am ten. This is so many great quarterbacks as we can. He's not throwing a lot so many true. Okay. Okay. So what do you got with Camerin Ingram guys? Chimeras gonna start in Ingram's of in that latavius Murray. Right now, the twenties I mean, just guys that should have the chance to get a decent workload. But not exactly a great situation. Great matchup. So a guy like to Rico, and you would start over him. Yes. Oh, yes. Obviously Philip Lindsay will start over with more than MAC plays stardom. Okay. And the restart over wide receivers any interest in people are going to start Michael Thomas. If roads plays than you know, might not be a great game for him. But you're starting Thomas what about trade on Smith or Meredith interest Smith the flyer? I mean, I think he can run pass. Trae Wayne's both see how that goes. Then Watson starter sit. Low and starter streamer. Yeah. Yeah. This is this team struggles against Ed seventh. Most fantasy points tight ends for Minnesota Cato had nine Graham had nine in non PR. They both at five or six catches Jason Croom. Caught a touchdown seals Jones had a solid game. At least for him. Chris Herndon had four five eight speaking beat the waiver. Go get Chris to know. Hurts actually forget about this week next week. Well, just because Michael Roberts, Julius Thomas. Justice Thomas less through to Jordan Thomas, Jesus the last two weeks and Julius Jonathan Taylor. Thomas. All right. Let's go to Kirk cousins starter sit cousins breeze. Make that decision for me. Cousins breeze. Dammit, I really wanna start cousins. I just told you to well, why do you love them? Well, I like better than Brees. The saints. They allow terrible against quarterbacks. Second most. It's. Look you'll get the quarterback. They played Ryan Fitzpatrick. Yeah. Okay. You're right. It's it's too huge games. Fitzpatrick. And Matt Ryan tyrod Taylor Eli manning Alex Smith Joe flacco. What a who's tear? Off your list? But I think I'm wrong about flacco. Because I put that he scored thirteen. Oh, yeah. He did score thirteen fantasy points. Right. No flacco had thirty. Against the saints last week. Yes. Hit thirty thirteen zero. Oh, three of them thirty thirty assing. Yeah. I knew it was a mistake there. Right. So if flacco can have thirty why why would cousins not able to light this team up? He could I don't think he's a bad start. But I don't think you should say the saints terrible against quarterbacks because it's it's really an inflated situation by one two games. What's I'm confused? Didn't they look at? Yeah. The quarterbacks they faced have played. They have to have played the easiest schedule against this year. They faced all bad quarterbacks almost entirely set. Matt Ryan except for Matt right? And. Okay. Joe flacco one hundred percent did not score thirty points last week. He scored twenty three Lamar Jackson had a rushing touchdown. So that score they scored twenty nine as a group. Flacco scored twenty three fantasy points last week, which is pretty damn good for him. Yeah. But home is usually good. Right. So. The point is a good start. I don't know if he's a great start. They just added another corner in Eli apple that should make their secondary better. That's true. Don't know if he's gonna play. But I assume he will. All right. So he's I'm gonna go with you. I'm going to start cousins over Brees. All right. Thank you. And let's do that have roads play on the you do that. Would you roads out? Yeah. I'm not gonna move him up cousins fifth and breach twelve th so, oh, yeah. Yeah. I mean, this is what cousins does like he has some bad gains yet, some huge games. He lately they've been he he had a great game against who. Is it where he really miss miss? Philly was thirty one of thirty seven passing three hundred yards touchtone. He's he's giving you unreal. Completion percentage. He's throwing the ball. Plenty the touchdowns. Just haven't quite been there. Like you'd like them to be right. And I think I think they'll come. Heath does to apparently starters, Stefan digs start. Okay. What you're going to start him starter sitcom off? He's all right. I prefer some of the other Johnny come lately tight ends like Howard. Joe? Cou he's on who's Allah Watson. That was my next question Watson or Rudolf. It's very close. Right. Yeah. I'd actually I think I'd go Rudolph in non and Watson pure the saints are actually very good against tight ends for fewest fantasy points. OJ Howard is the only tied in with more than thirty yards against the saints. Mark Andrews is the only one to score they faced Howard a joke. Hooper Jordan Reed, Mark Andrew.

I would happen. He missed the team flight because he didn't have his passport situation handled. So he had to take a commercial flight by himself who man he made. All right. Hope they had like entertainment. On the flight TV's or something stat of the game for Seattle and Detroit. Aaron Rodgers is the only quarterback with more than twenty two points against Detroit in six point for passing touchdown leaks. And he threw fifty two passes in that game. So players still throw on Detroit a lot. They see the second was passed tempts. No, sorry second. Yeah. Pass attempts per game matter with me, Russell Wilson starter sit. Okay. We'll sit them whence or Wilson. Whence wince. All right. Chris Carson is an interesting one starter sit Chris Carson. Start. You gotta start them. Yeah. How much would Harrison matter if he starts for if he plays for the lions the giants? I believe ranked second run something like that right around that. Twentieth. And fantasy points allowed their twenty twenty six four yards per carry in a running backs whereas the Mayans at six yards per carry. Right. So he won't be. So they go to five yards per carry. Okay. So Carson awesome start. No, no. He's not as awesome star. But he is a good start. I'm going to get away from NPR. I I would start short over. Would you start the tavis mayor Chris Carson Carson Carson latavius? Doug, Baldwin or Tyler Lockett who go on with Baldwin. Welcome. Welcome Dougie fresh. That's an easy one. So how much do you like Baldwin this week? I found myself liking him a lot. I'm going to. Yes. The slot has been a problem for the lines. No matter who they've had their slot corner. Derry slade. This is unrelated. He's obviously not gonna lineup much against Doug Baldwin. But he's giving up five touchdowns this year. Three in the last two weeks in Slade. He is this this past defense. Isn't that great? The pass rush hasn't been that. Great. I don't think Harrison's gonna change that much. If at all. It's one of the reasons why he won't I'm a little iffy on on Wilson being an outright set. I know that the numbers have been very odd for him. He's had three touchdowns despite twenty one pass attempts. I think the last two weeks we've seen the lions allow multiple passing touchdowns in all. But one game this season. I think he'll be okay. I think Baldwin really does benefit from from the match up from the targets that he seems to be set for after what we saw in their last game against the raiders. Yeah. They actually give up an average of twenty fantasy points per game two quarterbacks on the season. The lions yes. And their seventh worst in yards per attempt. But like I said they see the second fewest said who did what twenty two more than twenty two. I'm sorry. Yes. So over twenty two so you have four guys that got to twenty one or more right three in the last three games. And so I think that twenty point number is where Wilson will kind of settling your sitting lock it, right though. Not that interested as a fine flex. Yeah. I'd said Kenny golladay would he be the best wide receiver in this game? Yes, I prefer taking PR. Are you talking about of the lions or you talking overall would you rank Baldwin with I actually Baldwin right? Couple spots head of golladay, and I'm not a fan of this week. How come because I think the Seahawks pass defenses pretty good. I think they can cover them. Well, and we've seen now two straight games where the lions have been able to run the ball fairly effectively, and it's taken work away from gold Tate. The one thing that I knew all along was that he was extension of the run game which was previously not existent with the lions. Yeah. He's still got ten PR points last week. Oh, so Diddy we're talking like the last couple of weeks. Guys got hurt. The most last week was gonna go there. You only got through your gates. He's had a touchdown called back in two straight games. And Taylor has but. He's still so involved. Okay. So we're sitting Marvin Jones, I assume yes, take did have over ten fancy PR points. He had a thirty yard rush last. Very good. Is it ten? No, no. That's a way to justify starting somebody with a floor. As revenge game though that is bench games against them before and hasn't done. Well, kerryon Johnson starter. Sit gotta start him over. Chris Riddick is out. Again johnson. Carson. Don, I'll go kerryon Johnson. And Gary blunt, you're gonna sit. I think that's pretty much it for this game which star Carrie Johnson or Kenny golladay Johnson Johnson Johnson is completely forgot about Marvin Jones like the lines. No, I said which sitting I said. I've seen them at Dixon practicing full looks like he's gonna make his debut. Yes. And I had a stat about the lions against tight ends. I don't think anybody really cares. No. But he's somebody keep an eye on last position three games. The lions have allowed to touchdowns two tight ends and six catches for seventy six ers Jimmy Graham, I somebody to expose the lions pass defense. Maybe the Seahawks will be the one to do it throws a twenty two times game. Jets are the bears stat of the game. We talk about Isaiah Crowell and a tough match-up for him. But a good opportunity Frank Gore's the only running back with more than fifty seven rushing yards against the bears. And is the only running back or the only running back with double digit fantasy points. Non PR without a receiving touchdown. And of course, he did it in an overtime game starter sit Crowell. I'm starting flex at best. I I'm not excited about Crowell. Heath you'd start him. Would you start over Chris? Carson would you start him over latavius? Not carry on Johnson. I would not start him over Carrie Johnson. I would start him over the other guys stark rollover Carson. Yes. How come obviously Carson has a much better up. Of course, doesn't I currently projecting snacks is going to place that might change a little bit. If he doesn't play. I did downgrade Carson just a little bit because of that but left him in my top twenty running backs. I just think if you give crow krill sixteen. Two twenty touches. He's got a pretty decent chance of breaking a big play. I know the bears have not given up a rushing touchdown yet. I don't expect them to go the entire season without giving up a rushing touchdown. And if the jets score rushing touchdown Isaiah Crowell. Be the one who's worth. Do. You have a half yard away from giving up. Touchdown Kenyan Drake falls in the end zone that gaming Miami. That's you know, how many big Russia's. They've allowed twenty plus yard Russia's the bears of one. And it was Frank ore of all the people and bears. Linebacker got hurt on the play. So I would say the pretty good against the run. And well, I don't think he's going to dominate touches for the jets. I think they're still gonna use the second guy, and we're not really going to be super excited about Trenton cannon this week. But he might be someone you wanna put on your bench the bonus. That of the game was that the bears allow the second most pass plays of forty plus yards in the NFL only one team has allowed more and they played their eighth game of the season last night. That was the Miami Dolphins the bears do give big plays. That's kind of why I liked Robbie Anderson as a sleeper. On the waiver wire show any attend targets last week. But it's gonna be cold high of fifty four low of forty one. And there are already people who are saying why do we Dr Sam darnold? He can't play in the cold. So I don't do. You wanna start anyone in the jets passing game? No an inner since banged up to he is this is a day game. Right. Yes. So it's going to be the fifties. Last week was a day game at for the jets and darnold was terrible isn't darnold. Just not a great quarterback to begin with like very up and down doesn't complete a lot of his passes probably gonna need a better receiving core than what he has. Now, the Matthews taking it all back. We're not started. Getting these guys though problem Herndon if you're desperate at tight end because because he scored a touchdown each of the last two weeks targets haven't been bad. I just wish he'd play a little bit more. I was with you at him on the Robbie Anderson boom bust flexing. Yeah. He's still think he is. He's that every is that every game. But the bears are a good matchup for a player like him. They do give up passing place, which we're little warmer. Though Trubisky is seventh for everyone. You can definitely start Mitch Trubisky. The jets have just been dreadful against quarterbacks. Even though cousins really take advantage of that matchup last week bears running backs Howard or Cohen. I know it's easy and PR. It's coen. But what about a non PR? Yes. Coen? Still Cohen Howard crow L our crew cruel Howard. Who's the best bear this week like other than Trubisky is going to score the most points? Then burton. So how does to Bisky get his points? If we're not going to start any of his Michael vick's his Michael Taylor Gabriel's number three receiver. Right. You're not gonna give up on them. Just because he had allows lousy game last week. I'll more back into Robinson's out if Robinson plays. I don't love. And if Robinson plays you don't love Robinson either. Right. No. Like the jets are really bad against wide receivers. They've out nine or more fantasy points. Non PR big game to multiple receivers in the same game four times in seven games. Trae Burton's must start at this point. He's top eight. He's six seventh or eighth for everybody's actually ninth and PR for David heath. Actually, the jets have been worse against wide receivers in the habit against tight ends. I'll say that he's a wide receiver though, he is either on the only tight end with more than thirty six yards against the jets. But how can you get away from Burton which star pertinent Howard? Burton NPR Howard and on and the bears the t to bad games in a row with only one combined sec, but they are top two this week is they will get back to the positive side of things. I am going to tell you the bonanza and you can go to that game.

Knicks lose dolphins lose. Dolphins lose stewed. You're missing the team that I really want to win this week the dodgers. And they've already lost. You're missing it. Because they're not gonna win. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I went off on the Red Sox yesterday. I actually did that for the Red Sox fans. I thought you would be happy to know how pissed off. I am. I thought that would actually bring a smile to your face, by the way. Here we go. We got up an answer coming up. Those. It's dodgers Red Sox. Warmer weather. No, it's the Bengals I have faith it ended altered. And of course, the buccaneers. They're a big part of this too too bad defenses a lot of points a lot of fantasy production. I'd say a layup. Bengals books. Not this game. Baltimore carolina. Let's get to it. So which which players. Yeah. Because there's some bad bad players in that game. Okay. Both quarterbacks. Okay. Vixen? Okay. Green evans. Two other wide receivers. Boy, do I I take the Sean over Godwin j but they both might be good Howard. I'm a touch worried about him either. Howard or you will score. And forget about the running backs cares about the bugs running backs. You get those right. You're you're. I don't have to get all of them. Right. You know, a bonanza when you see what it was not one it won't be. Yes. It was it won't be Carolina. Where Baltimore and the Panthers are mingling stat of the game the Panthers. I dunno know, they're running. It's getting a little bit better. They had been terrible against running backs. But they were great against the eagles. And if you look at two of their last three games, the giants running backs woods just Barclay average three point two yards per carry. The eagles running backs two point six yards per carry. Do you have any faith in Alex Collins this week? No and Thomas Davis not to gains back MRs pension. So that's probably big factor would happen last week. I do not have any faith in one's. Yeah. I mean, we've talked about a lot of guys that you're starting over him right Murray. Ingram moster. Yeah. And we don't have faith in book. Alan. Flaco eighteenth for Jamie and heath fifteenth for day of I think we can go pretty quickly on Baltimore, which ravens wide receiver to prefer trombone. That's the one do you like love John Brown. I like I like love him like Malek just like him. Okay, starters Crabtree. I don't feel good about crime. I like him. He's a low in number three receiver twelve points. PR funchess Brown. I Brown retire. I believe they're so similar. I have ranked they touchdowns. Touchdowns touchdowns to be good Brown. Could do it on a couple of big plays? Baltimore secondary. There were some concerns earlier in the week that they might not be at full-strength car and Jimmy Smith, both practiced in full Smith has a look great this year. But even he should be able to kinda sorta contain funchess. I think funchess is going to be a little touchdown dependent. He's always dependent. Well, but he still gets you like six for seventy or something. You hope for sixty two that's pretty reasonable last week. Funchess had six for sixty two at the eagles. He's been between sivy on his fame bust five for sixty five to sixty to seventy seven yards four of his last five games. And Cam Newton starter sit. So hard to say to get away from Cam Newton when he's been playing so well, forget really really difficult match. But you have outside the top twelve. So how do we set it in forget it because it's not a top twelve anymore. Adam. It's a top thirty. What we say twelve because they're usually twelve teams in a league, which is very likely that somebody has a quarterback there. Also some teams in a league that have to the guys in the top. The key is no one that's ranked above Cam Newton is available in more than twenty five percents. I'm not telling anyone to pick up somebody on free eight free agency. But I have Dalton and camp start start on. Yeah. I think you should start Dalton. But you can't he has at least twenty seven fantasy points and four of his last five at least twenty seven. Yeah. Is worse game in that span. The game. He didn't have twenty seventy nineteen and the Braves a tough match-up. They allowed the second fewest points the quarterbacks. Newton is a matchup killer. But he you know, he is definitely a start. But you could start other guys with better match ups, which you give any thoughts of sitting Christian McCaffrey, non PR. I would for Torri Conan James white. What about for Jalen Rashard? PR no way what about Moster or McCaffrey, non PR? No. If you were if you were to say for sure he's getting eighty percent of touches. Yes. But as he said Alfred Morris is going to be there as well. Even if redesigned well, and I think the fear with the cafe said he doesn't even have ten carries and either his last two games. And now he's going up against Baltimore. But there are like seven running backs that you could legitimately have on your team with McCaffrey that. I'd start over them in non Connor. Fourteen for me claims white kerryon Johnson, Phillip Lindsey L Adrian Peterson more than Maccabi plays. So Jamie, you've McCaffrey fifteenth PBR, I think so right around there. Do you know, do you know what he averages in points per game like where he is imports per game in not PR fifteenth fifteenth fourteenth. Eliminate Mark Ingram. We talked about funchess. Greg Olsen starter. Sit. I'm sitting. I'd rather sit him, but it started over and Ingram. I would do that as well. But he's outside. I don't think he's even my top fifteen already Washington is at the giants stat of the game. They Redskins have allowed seventy or more yards to six wide receivers in their last three games. Three saints. Devin funchess Michael galloping? Alan her only one of those receivers had more than eighty one yards. But you know, the way we kind of like funchess. It's like a seventy yard guy. That's sort of what sterling shepherd had been without Evan Ingraham. And he's shepherd is probably the only tough call for the giants. You're getting away from your starting Barclay Beckham. And you're gonna try to sit Ingram starts at shepherd. I like much better than PR for obvious reasons. I am optimistic that he will continue to see a nice amount of work the Washington pass defense as predictable to figure out because they don't really move there guys around and be there. I it looks like they're going to be without one of their perimeter Cornerbacks. Their slack corner isn't gonna play at one hundred percent. I optimize about sterling shepherd this week. And he's a top thirty receiver say number three potentially number two, which you start over Alex Collins. Yes. Yes already. So. Yeah. I think we can skip the giants basically covered them Alex Smith any interest here. No. Actually like manning better than Smith. Right. Just for argument's sake. Hi, what do you think about the less than manning? The redskins. The Redskins running back skies. I mean Peterson's most star guy in Thompson will be Affleck's if he plays, especially. Yeah. I mean, you can't even look at what the giants have done against running backs because they just got a lot worse against running backs. They lost a very good run stuffer. So out of touch running back and every game. Yeah. And Thompson is tough recall if he plays. What do you do? At least the flex. I don't know how much work will get if they're receiving the game awful in three bibs. Capri bibs scored last week. So it's still Alex Smith is throwing the ball to because he doesn't have a lot of helping fast game. It's tight ends eleven. Thompson or shepherd. There's more upside shepherd. I'd probably take Thomson Thomson Peterson and PR fears Peterson. I don't think this is a seven catch game for Thomson Thomson or Crowell. Grew. I think I'd actually go curl. Yeah. He safer. Okay. Jordan Reed starter sit. I'm probably starting them. I would try not to I would try not to also but sportsline loves in this week and just you know, give credit credit stews. Forsling loved us on Watson this week. Do they had him second? I got this gut feeling about George Rivas a lot of it had to do with guys being out. But Paul Richardson is going to play right? He's on track. Maybe that's what he needs needs. Everybody back. Maybe the giants have actually Chris HOGAN, he needs more Kelly. Yeah. It could be the campy Green Bay at the Rams said of the game. Jared Goff is only one game with more than thirty three patents. And none with more than thirty six pacits this year and for Green Bay, they see the third fewest pass temps in the NFL. And Kirk cousins is the only quarterback has had a big game against the Packers more than twenty one point. So it's like golf is great. I don't think the Packers past even to special, but they don't get thrown on a lot and golf doesn't throw a lot. So do you like Jared Goff this week? I don't think that they get thrown on a lot thing is. A thing. I don't think that's a staple of a good fantasy defense played the bills who just don't throw a lot. They had the weird game against Deford with lions jumped up early. They didn't trust your biscuit week one. Okay. But but then but on the games were Alec off. Does not throw a lot that that. I know he mi- over the over under the highest for the week. So unless girly goes crazy which could. This game. I off the fact that Aaron Rodgers is a nine point underdogs ridiculous weight. Should should I change it. No you pick the right one. Okay. But I think the second highs total of the week. Okay. Bucks is bucks Bengals. Well, yeah. And I'm concerned about the Packers running backs. If people start them, the, you know being letdowns, what would you the buccaneers running backs? But you could just do a one-sided backfield. Yeah. Nobody cares. So. Rogers is must stop for his second for Jamie. And he's he's fourth Dave Goff is compared to Cam better. Go. Six point for passengers. Yeah. How about Dalton or golf Dalton? I think I've often entire than both doll named Cam. I'll go Dalton overall. Do you see yourself starting any Packers running backs? No, no. Do you see yourself starting any Packers wide receivers? Other than devante Adams. Alison, correct. I'll start Allison is a number three. If he if he plays. He's a great number three. And if you're in a pinch and number two you go with him provided he plays. It's gonna be okay. Just the one guy. We started Alison over shepherd. Okay. I don't think we have talked much about the Rams because we talked about off who's an okays fine. Start this week. It's top ten and Jimmy Graham, by the way, I like the matchup. They have not been good against tight ends. These good tight ends. And I was gonna use them at the third most expensive tight end. So I'm not sure I will. But Graham should be fine. And you should start him girl. Yes. Both Rams receivers. Yes. Anyone else for the Rams? No, okay. And you can get away from their DSP. Like, we said you can drop their Green Bay at the saints Seattle at Kansas City, and then a buy their next five weeks at our final game of the day is San Francisco at Amazon a- saving the best for last should be go on Olympia, man. What would it take for this to be a bonanza Beth 'Red Moster one of the forty Niners receivers George kit. We'd have to be Goodwin. Bettered Moster kiddle. Good win Johnson fits Kirk Kirk. Yeah. We could make this. Yeah. This is the bonanza I think that the guy that I think that the players that get started in this game are are going to be good. So is this the bonanza? No, of course, not already we already declared it we've already declared to bonanzas, Jamie. We can't have fake. David Johnson your favorite running back in this game. Yeah. Yes. Yes. I think he's gonna have a break starter. Sit Markey's Goodwin said definitely said. Yeah. Cardinals loud, sixty was fantasy points wide receiver start George kettle. I think he might be the only fully trustworthy forty-nine or you could go with this week. I could certainly see this being a breakout game for the cardinals in general. Their offense will be a little smarter. That'll help the defense. Stay a little fresher their defenses already been pretty good things considered. At least pass defense, maybe not the run defense. So which receiver do you like better Kirker fits I've got the answer her Kirk slightly, but they're both in the same range number three guys. I think fits I think fits and PR's the better one it's nice that left which is saying that they're going to feature a little bit more. And hopefully after what he did last week. We scored he's back to being close to one hundred percent healthy, especially with more time to get ready for this game fits or John Brown, brownie. Fits chris. We were talking about the cardinals receivers part of the season three years ago. Did we mention Michael Floyd, Chris Godwin? Godwin Godwin, and how much I may have fits higher. How much do you like the Zona D S T like a flag? Yeah. Like love like love. I like like him. We gotta go to cold stone. Now like it love it. Gotta have it. We are out of here. Mailbag? You gotta have what do you get a Colson? I don't going with this. But I mix it. Have a great weekend. Everybody actually what's talk the on the Saturday mail bag Saturday night radio show, and if t on Sunday from ten AM until one PM eastern, Dave he left to Phnom here. Oh, well, the do it. Oh.

Phinsider Radio: Carving the path to victory for the Miami Dolphins against the Indianapolis Colts

"Radio pogo dot com, any Espy nation network. And now your host at you cannot joined by co-hosts, Josh outs and air inside. Hello, everybody. And welcome to fit cider radio. This is Matt cannot joined by here inside in Joshua. How the by by dolphins headed to base? The Indianapolis Colts at Lucas oil stadium. Sunday colts holding a five and five record bowl teams in the thick of the playoff race for the American Football Conference. Both of them are in the hunt with plenty of other teams crowded in that pack the Miami Dolphins season, essentially begins and it can end on Sunday as well for twenty five eastern standard time on CBS. Greg Gumbel with the play by play Trent green doing the color analysis. We're joined by Bruce areas in the booth on the silent Melanie Collins dolphins again, five and five in the hunts. Tiebreaker loss to the Bengals if they lose on Sunday verse two colts, they will lose that tiebreaker as well. Which is why this game is so important in how Ryan tannehill is coming back Frank Gore's coming back to Indianapolis where he played for three seasons before we get into all of that your preliminary thoughts as we head into Sunday as we get ready for this addition of insider radio house, what do you got him in you touched it? We talked about that Cincinnati gamer in the year being kids. It was down the stretch. And I mean that game come back to haunt dolphins. This is the same thing if the dolphins can't go out there and be Indianapolis of their playoff hopes are pretty much dead and seasons offer not you hope Ryan comeback. And you know, do things that we saw in two thousand sixteen things that we saw the first three weeks of the season. But right now, Indianapolis wanna hottest teams football. So it's not an easy task as going to be interesting to see how this comes out after the by. Then you talk about shoulder injuries. And you look at the way Andrew luck spin playing football. You can only hope that Ryan tannehill responds in the same way will Stephanie see what happens on Sunday. One of the unheralded things that we may not get too much on this show. But one of the reasons that Indianapolis and playing good football because what they've been doing in the trenches. They've been doing a much better job than the typical. Indianapolis team is at stopping the run and they're also doing while running the balls, well, and and spurts so it's gonna be a tough game for us. They have great offensive line and they've been having timely defensive line play too. So it's going to be a it's going to be a really big test for us on all fronts. And one guy hoping to make a difference on Sunday as Frank Gore's. It mentioned the top of the show Frank or playing for the colts for three seasons back in two thousand fifteen two thousand sixteen two thousand seventeen previously with the San Francisco forty Niners from two thousand five to two thousand fourteen nine courses I season with Miami was crowns of the lead back heading into the Cincinnati Bengals game. It is not giving up that role ever since so far on the season. He has accumulated five hundred twenty eight yards on the ground in the air eighty yards yards per attempt rushing four point five compared to Kenyan Drake, which is a bit less. Kenyan drake. We've all talked about this on our show and all throughout every other podcasts on the internet for the dolphins. Or verse Drake who's better? What are the dolphins doing with that? But when you look at Frank gore, he is just ageless just recently in week nine against the jets. He moves into six place among the NFL's all time scrimmage yards. He now has eighteen thousand three. And a six scrimmage yards in his career. He trails ladainian Tomlinson by one hundred fifty one scrimmage fifth-place, God willing Frank course as healthy he's going to get into fifth place before the end of this season. Against the Packers. He achieved another milestone this one being an NFL record surpassed five hundred plus rushing yards for the fourteenth consecutive season. Every season in his NFL career. He was previously with hall of fame running back Emmitt Smith and running back Walter Payton with thirteen consecutive seasons. The five hundred plus rushing yards. He has played in one hundred twenty two consecutive games. Most by an active running back, but also the most by any active offense of skill player since twenty and fifteen he has three thousand four hundred eighty rushing orange eighty one rushing yards fifth in the NFL in that span. The only ones above him Todd Gurley. Shawn McCoy is equal Elliott's. And Melvin Gordon. Ironically, enough the one behind him in six place is Lamar Miller. Frank gore. The dolphins use him because he moves the chain. He keeps the offense on scripts, and I'm schedule as liked to say you come in with the game plan. You come up with the offense is script. You want to get about four or five yards on first down another few on second down. If you have to get the third you wanted to be two or three yards. No, more Nola or. Yes, less obviously, I deal. You don't wanna get the third of Frank gore keeps a dolphin dolphins trending in the right direction. He's rated I think in the top five by pro football, focus. I think maybe number two overall. You look at pro football, focus grades. This season is offense. Overall, great is eighty four point two is running grade is eighty one point six is run blocking grade is seventy point four compared to Kenyan Drake. Overall, sixty two point six. His running rate is sixty seven point seven is run blocking grade fifty six point six so huge difference there. Frank Gore's played one hundred twenty eight snaps in ten games again, averaging four point five yards per attempt seventeen I sound seven runs of ten plus or more total yards on the ground five hundred twenty eight once again, how when you look at Frank gore when you look at the age list wonder sign, how do you think he fits into Miami's game plan is they head to Indianapolis on Sunday. In terms of the novelty playing against the Annapolis colts. You know, it's kinda cool that he's playing against the team that used to play for. But for a player that's been in the league for thirty four years like Frank gore. He's probably played with every player in the NFL at some point during his career. So I think it's going to be kind of business as usual for him for the most part. I think you're going to see him be the primary back like we've seen for the last, you know, six seven games. So we're going to see him hopefully, establish the ground game for us because you know, I mentioned in the opening of the show about the colts improvements and their trench play. They've also been kind of inconsistent the run defense of either been really good or they've been not so good. So I'm hoping this is one of those games where gays stirring, the bye week has figured out. How we're going to be able to control the ball on the ground because I think Frank was gonna be a huge piece of this game. Because if you think about the fact that Ryan. Does come back from injury. And I know we'll get into this and a little bit. But I really think we're gonna have to bring them along slow guys. I think he's gonna be rusty. And I think we're gonna have to draw up some really, you know, those plaques bootleg titan outta flat sort of four five yard chunk plays and then really getting the ground game involved. So I'm hoping gays was able to identify something in the tape and be able to get the ground game going and we've seen the distribution carries and catches between gore and Drake. So you can only think that gore is gonna have a huge role and any Miami game plan on Sunday. And it's kind of funny because coming into this game. We're trying to save Frank oars, you know, revenge game in you look at when he played it with India. It was only three seasons in. I think we all kind of thought he was a little longer that spent ten years San Francisco like said, I mean, he's just wonder like you said, I mean, this guy's me of consistent running back. And he's anything that you know. No one of these young running backs looking up to coming into the league. That's who they wanna be. They want to be a Frank ore and someone who sat there and complained about the touches it can in Drake's been getting, you know, the snaps as balloons into Frank or you kinda starting to see why I mean Frank or just she goes out there and he's consistently running the football getting those four five yards. And that's what it is often team needs especially Ryan tannehill coming back. Kenyan Drake was banged up throughout the week. So I do think that's gonna play a factor in this Franco definitely see a bulk of the carries. And I do think my has a chance to go into Indian steel that victory in a meaningful way of seeing that could have playoff implications at the end of the year. I think that through on Franko. I mean, he's a asset in the passing game is just as consistent running the football. And I mean, he's going to be huge part of the offense. So I think they're gonna go out there, and you're gonna feed him early in Austin. And if they wanna have success in this game they win win this football game. It's gonna rely on Frank Orrin that running a game. Speaking of comebacks besides Frank gore and other guy coming back to the field is Ryan tannehill. And he. Has missed the past several games with shoulder injury. And we said this on our show earlier this week. And if you have not listened to that bestowed, please do so it's all about Ryan tannehill at Adam gates and their future Miami. But Ryan tannehill needs to come back this game the dolphins need him to come back. And he needs it for himself to come back because these six games will define his career moving forward. Will he be the quarterback moving forward in Miami? Or will he be bridge quarterback for the rest of his career in the NFL be? That's essentially what he most likely become if he comes back and the dolphins don't do much. The good news is that the dolphins are twelve and six and games that Ryan tannehill started and the gates era from twenty sixteen to present. In those eighteen games in half of them. Dolphins have connected on fifty plus yard passer. Nine of them. He averages seven point sixty six yards per attempt as ninety three point four quarterback rating in eighteen starts under Adam gazes seven point six yards per attempt since twenty six ten in the NFL in that span with the minimum three hundred attempts. Here's completed early seventy percent of his pass than seven his past ten games and he's supposed to quarterback rating of hundred twenty plus and five of his past nine games in his career under out. Engage. His first season. The best quarterback rating nine three point five yards per attempt. Seven point seven and his career and his ninety three point five passer rating at twenty sixty in the first year under gays was the fourth best in team history and the highest since two thousand eight we saw last Adam gates was so excited for Ryan tannehill. So said told everyone he was going to be a monster that season and unfortunately towards ACL and training camp. Gates, again, we're all excited Ryan will come back, and he struggle. Let's not let's not sure things it's easy. To forget the struggles he had the first weeks of the season. Wasn't for Albert Wilson, gene? Grant, making those huge splash plays might be looking at a different narrative. But then we saw Brock Osweiler for several weeks. We need Ryan Santa hill back and indeed the dolphins will get him back. You is taken off the injury report on Friday, which means no storage, which means he participated in one hundred percent of the reps probably light practice day. But nonetheless, still good news. When you look at Ryan tannehill in the colts defense and everything that they try to do to rattle quarterbacks. Dolphins won't be able to open up their offense a bit more with mobile Ryan tannehill. We all saw Brock Osweiler try to run, and it wasn't pretty I think I can run faster them rock when you look at the cold. So when you look at Ryan tannehill with the colts try to blitz Ryan tannehill. They're going to do pretty well for themselves because Ryan tannehill overall af grade one blitz is twenty six point four his passing greed is twenty six point seven likes to out of the pocket at that point sixty two point nine and seventeen point nine fumble rate in grade under no pressure. Her seventy five point five total grader, seventy three point five passing grade, sixty six point four rushing greed and a positive eighty five point four for the fumble rate. So the coach wanna rattle him they're going to want to blitz him. But the dolphins have short offense passing attack and perhaps Ryan tannehill sitting on the sideline. And once again a lot to digest Adam gates, his offense more, but the big question is Danny amendola leading receiver for the Miami Dolphins this season is questionable probably will play. But. He is very important to this offense. So far he has led the team in receptions with forty seven and receiving yards. Four hundred fifty six he's on pace elitist team in receptions, for the first time since two thousand twelve and Saint Louis when he caught sixty three passes, basically, he's the new Jarvis Landry. When you look at Ryan Santa hills passing chart, right? Pretty good intermediate. Obviously behind scrimmage dolphins like to run a lot of those screens with Albert Wilson, education grant, and so forth. They don't have either of them anymore. Up the middle in the middle of the hashes between the hash is up to middle. Two out of six two touchdowns to intercept outside left deep two touchdowns. No interceptions outside right deep. No touchdowns. One interception. He has no interceptions or no touchdowns when it's ten plus two twenty. Plus he has two touchdowns one interceptions. One zero to ten yards but outside left zero to ten yards. Twenty eight point nine PF grade, absolutely dreadful seventeen point nine total grade. His highest PF grade is behind the line of scrimmage on fortunately in the middle. And now, that's really doodles Albert Wilson screen passes the had against the Oakland Raiders. But after that zero to ten plus yards right in the middle of the field. One eighteen point four PF grade after that it's in the middle of field ten or twenty yards one fifteen point six so he likes to go in the middle of field as well outside. When you look at Ryan tannehill we talked about his long-term future. But in terms of this game on Sunday against the colts. Do we see him? Making a big impact. We see him coming out firing on all cylinders house. What do you say? Yes. Without question. I mean, we just suffered through rock Osweiler Cherie had those first few games where we looked pretty decent. And he could get the job done and do as little asked upon them. But I mean now we're getting Ryan tannehill back and whether or not you think he's a franchise quarterback the future Miami. He's definitely an upgrade over Brock Osweiler. So I do see him having a significant impact in this game. I mean, his arm strength is is accuracy everything. He does. The maybe you know, the pocket presence Ness of pre snap is significantly better than what fraud costs while brings to the table. So I do this offense going to open up a bit in my opinion. I know shoulders in issue, but his leg is not anymore. And I think the dolphin should use some of that repass option some of those give him small tunes run the ball move get on the outside throw on the run. I mean, that's kinda Ryan tannehill strong. See when he's outside the pocket when he's rolling does. Right. And he's making those easy throws to his receivers. I mean, he's got the weapons I think earlier in the week we touched on some of their weapons that they had. And I said it was depleted. Receiving core. It really isn't. When you look at your missing Albert Wilson missing Yuki grandpa than that, it looks like everyone's gonna go. Devante Parker de neom and dole the price Butler now Kenny stills, hopefully might seek you eventually steps up can Drake's make an impact in the passing game. So he definitely has the same weapons. I think the biggest thing for me is how the offensive line comes out there. And you know, John James gonna go. It sounds like you might. But it still seems to be up in the air. It sounds like we're gonna go to huge get for Miami. But that Indianapolis secondary than to defense overall is pretty good. So I think Ryan leads go out there. And you said it best he stuff, he's he's a liability when he's under pressure something that you didn't really see the pass from my nose PF grade in just overall statistically he would succeed in, you know, make those hard throws when he had pressured his face, but he just not doing it much this season. And I don't know if some that's because the knee issues because those injury concerns if it's all a mental thing. So you need to you can go out there and not crumble under pressure because the dolphins need him to go out there and play a near perfect. Game to win this. And I think I think he's going to have a pretty big impact. I'm looking at something like, you know, two touchdowns one interception and two hundred and fifty yards. I think he can go out there and do enough to get this team to victory. He decides to play a damn near perfect game. If he wants to do it. You know, I'm looking at the twenty one personnel group as something that I think we're going to have to be able to utilize so let me Lavery little bit further. So that Twenty-one personnel would be you know, two running backs in one tight end. So I'm looking at having gore and Drake on the field at the same time that why would I do that? So you have stills on one boundary, and you have Parker on the other case. So we have some deep play potential there. Now, Ryan's definitely going to have to make a place to make throw. And if you're in the Annapolis. Wouldn't you come up and challenge us and make Ryan tannehill though deep ball not a rhetorical question. What you guys answer me as that? What you? Do is in the Annapolis defense. Probably. Yeah. Yeah. You wanna test the shoulder you wanna test the rust especially early in the game. So if I'm in Annapolis. I'm aggressive. Why wouldn't you be? And and you see what happens there? So what you do is. You're gonna get Drake who am I paying still a positional mismatch for me against a linebacker or a safety? That's why he's been targeted so heavily and the receiving game. So when you have Drake and a guy like just sickie on the field at the same time. Despite the fact, we have not been able to get just sickie involved in any consistent way. What they do is. They offer information the way that you can put them in the formation or where you put them during the play. So what we're gonna try to do is get those players matched up with certain defenders. Whether that's Drake on a linebacker or Drake on a corner or possibly just sickie splitting out wide and whether or not a linebacker. Goes out with him or whether a safety is out with him. And so we're going to try to give Ryan hills much information before the play even starts, and I think that's one way to get a quarterback that's been out of the fold four. What was guys over a month? So we gotta get him involved in a certain way where he gets comfortable with the game. And the way we're going to be able to do that as to minimize the amount of information. He has dissect before the play. So this is all going to be on gays and staff. Okay. This is going to be all on gays being able to draw up these types of plays for Ryan especially early in the game to put him in a chance where he can can find a little rhythm early. Because I really do think that we're going to have to stick with this in the Annapolis offense in some way. I mean, I'm not suggesting that we need to score thirty five points to win this game. We may actually have to. But you know, we. We have to expect the defense to do a little bit. So we we can't immi- opinion win a shootout here. But I think our offense if we can respond especially early if an inapt could Sabaot I and comes down in scores are -bility to respond. I think is going to be a huge testament to how long we can stay in this game. And I think Ryan tannehill have in those minimal progressions earlier in the game. Make those easy throws get the ground game matriculated in there and have a balanced offense. I think that's our best recipe to to stick with Indianapolis and escape Lucas oil with a with a win turnovers notwithstanding. I mean, Indianapolis has had more than share of difficulties turning the ball over nano. We'll get to that here in a little bit. When we talk about Andrew luck and that offense, but I think Ryan being able to. Lead a balanced offense. It's going to be huge. Yeah. Going to the other side of the field for the colts. And staying on the quarterback position. You gotta in July. And the dude Missy entire twenty seventeen. Sees the shoulder injury has come back. This year has been on absolute fire. So first off the colts offense has the lowest sex allowed per pass attempt rate two point four percent in the NFL this season. They will out only ten sacks in two thousand eighteen that's the second fewest in the NFL only. One ahead of them is New Orleans with nine the offensive line. They've registered five consecutive games this season with zero secs allowed. That's a long as active streak and tied for the third longest streak in the NFL since nineteen eighty two this season. They lead the NFL at the most games with zero sacks allowed with five. They're all fence on third down. They've converted seventy one of one hundred thirty six third down past attempts. That's fifty two point two percent folks that doesn't sound like a lot. But this is the highest third down conversion rate in the NFL this season. The seventy one third down conversions are the most in the NFL. They're on fire. They have great coach offense of mine. Frank reich. Great, great, guests them. It's funny. Josh mcdaniels was there and then he walked away, and they get this guy. Frank, and he is doing wonders for this team. Andrew luck has thrown three more touchdown passes in seven consecutive games. That's longest active streak in the NFL. The second longest and colts history and tied for the third longest in NFL history. One more he'll Taipei in manning. Three more games. He'll type Tom Brady for one first place. Andrew luck one of four quarterbacks in the NFL history and throw a touchdown at twelve or more different targets in single season. That is this season. Crazy. He has thrown the twelve different targets. Matt Ryan leads with thirteen targets. This is all touchdowns. Andrew luck at least one touchdown pass and thirty three consecutive games again along a sector streak in the NFL, the eighth long as NFL history. His streak ranked second in colts team history. He's twenty nine touchdowns this season tied for the eighth most NFL history. The first eleven weeks of a single season. His completion percentage. He's established five of the highest single game. Completion percentages of his career this year in twenty eighteen. His also a salvage four of the highest single-game passer ratings of his career. I think you get the hint here. I think you get the point Andrew luck is a damn good football player, and he is playing at an elite level this season. He is playing like they number one draft pick any is playing like he was all expected to when he entered the league you look at his passenger from pro football, focus, you see all green with the exception of zero ten yards on the outside. Right. Other than that his deep ball phenomenal outside. Right. And that's why Hilton ninety six point nine grade across the board eighty three point one eighty seven point eight ninety six point on twenty plus yards. It's insane. If you try to blitz the guy, good luck. Here's an overall grade of ninety three point to a passer rating of ninety one point four or a passing grade. If you don't blitz him. He's still pretty good eighty point seven offensive grade seventy eight point nine here's how you beat him though. You don't blitz. But you gotta get pressure with your front four. You have to the dolphins needs to do is to win this game under pressure. He has an offensive great sixty one point passing grade of fifty nine point three the Dovaston pressure with a front four, which they haven't really shown the ability to do so this season, then they're going to have a chance now on the flip side before we get to use side. And how it's the dolphins defense is among the NFL's best force turnovers. They've ranked and they are ranked in the NFL's top have several statis-. Categories through the first half of the twenty eighteen season. Second interception with fifteen second. Interception percentage with four point six percent passes and tied for fifth in turnovers force with nineteen only one who has more interceptions. Others. You will bears. They're red zone defense. They've allowed points to be scored under seventy four point three percent of red zone possessions. That sounds like a lot. But it's actually the second best Mark in a league five I turn overs in the red zone, which leads the NFL in that category fifth in the NFL by allowing touch off. Just sixty percent gold eagle series. You got Kiko Alonzo playing all pro level. You got Minka Fitzpatrick playing a great level. The dolphins. Either defense to step up exerting. How're leads the NFL seven interceptions in his past fifteen gains. So it's going to be a force with Andrew luck coming forward against the dolphins defense, which has been steadily improving which forces a lot of turnovers. So and how do you see this shaking out Andrew lock versus dolphin's defense? I think this is absolutely one of those games for the defense is all about turnovers. That's not worried about how many yards that they give up because we're gonna give up yard matter. What we do out there. And Matt Burke, I, you know, I just don't think he's a defensive coordinator that's gonna come out and come up with some really exotic zone-blitz sort of thing to full Andrew luck. Okay. Other NFL teams are not getting pressure on Andrew luck. Because the offensive line has really improved for the NFL colts in. It's a recipe for disaster for us because we've already had our struggles getting to the quarterback. So how we get to him. That's a great question. I mean, luckily, we have guys like Reshad Jones and Jim McDonald who are good Blitzer 's from their safety position. So maybe were able to full him in in that way. But you'd like to be able to get that pressure with the front four. I'm just not sure that we're able to do that in a for not able to do that, Angie luck sitting back picking us apart. That's going to be really bad. So we really have to make them one dimensional. So we can't both have Andrew luck finding who he wants and the passing game and also giving up five and six yard chunks because then we are. Absolutely doomed. So we need to be able to to limit the the Marlin max in the nineteen Heinz. We have to be able to make them one dimensional. And then we can really allow came away can Robert Quinn to pin their ears back and came wake for years has gotten. So many sacks just with his ability to time the snap. So maybe you see some of that veteran come out and be able to make some timely plays and make a play on an offensive line. That hasn't given up a sack in like five games to have that right guys. I think it's five games or Angelo has not been sacked. Yep. Five-game? Yeah. So we we have definitely a tall task in front of us to be able to collapse that pocket. Make it uncomfortable for Andrew luck. But I think that is our ticket to be able to get outta Lucas oil with with a win. 'cause we're making Angie luck uncomfortable in some way, where they're they're turning. Of all over, and we are capitalizing those into point. So this is going to be a very similar recipe for me as the game one win that we had against Tennessee titans. Stay right there in the AFC south where we were able to generate some turnovers and turn those turnovers into points. And that ended up being the difference in the game. Yeah. This is absolutely. Would be a tough task. And I mean, it has the makeup of something that could end up being very ugly for the dolphins. I mean you guys both touched on to pass rush at times a season. It was non existent as well as that all fence of lines plan for Indianapolis. The key to this game's getting pressure on Angelo from those front four. Neither of you touched on the tight ends at the coal tab. I mean, they got Eric Ron and Jack in the dolphins defense has struggled with tight ends for what seems like all of our lives. So I mean that to me is the key match. I think that's where they're going to go out there and just have their way with the dolphins defense. I mean, they got receivers on the outside the chest Rogers, TY hill the Ryan grants. And then it got. Arguably the best quarterback in the NFL right now, Andrew luck playing out of his mind. He's just having his way with opposing defenses. And I it it's gonna be a tough task for the dolphins thankfully make. If it's Patrick it seems like Bobby McCain's coming back. Examing Howard is what he is hopefully shadows t y Hilton. But for me, I mean, so's tight ends. It's at great offensive line. It's insane quarterback. And then run game. I mean, you touch on Sutton Naim Hines, they got Jordan Wilkins, got morla MAC. I mean, they got three headed monster. There. Dolphins are bottom three in the NFL stopping the run. So they can beat us, and so many different ways, and they have to get their they have to be able to stop the run. They gotta be able to get to the past the they gotta be able to get Andrew lock. And it just got to be able to go out there in and dominate this game because they're not going to be a slowdown that offense they need to get turnovers. Like both of you said, and that's what's going to come down to how can that dolphin's defense? Capitalize those opportunities. He can't have the drop picks. You can't have those. You know, the force fumbles that they? They're bouncing around. And Indianapolis recovers immediate those plays. Gotta go out there. Make key plays in key situations. And that's what's going to be a difference in this game. I just think it's going to be a very tough task. I don't trust Matt for one bit given all the time. He had it. If I didn't it might come out and look worse. But I think my mascot there and play a near perfect game against one of the best offense NFL right now. And let me piggyback off that real quick penalties. That's going to be huge for us. And Ryan coming back were just hope and that the offense of timing still there. You know, the snaps are there, and we're not having so many pre snapped penalties trying to get things organized, so plain mistake free football. And then hopefully, you know, Indianapolis is getting some calls against them hard to do while they're playing at their at their stadium. But half the limit the penalties and the turnovers absolutely have to go away as well. It. All sounds good on paper, and we have the paths to victory on paper. But one of the biggest things and a lot of people don't understand this and don't realize this. But the dolphins home verse way have been. Day and night Jekyll and Hyde. However, you wanna put it let's just run through through stats here. They're passing splits at home and away. One fifty one to one fifty eight relatively even same with completion same percentage. But then it starts getting funky do yards per attempt at home eight point eight yards per attempt away. Six point one yards per game is even worse when you're passing two fifty point six at home. One sixty four point eight away home eleven touchdowns passing touchdowns at home. Only five away. For interceptions at home five interceptions away. That's pretty even your quarterback rating, though at home is one away point eight your quarterback rating away, seventy six point two. When you go to rushing, basically, even for attempts one twenty one nineteen yards per attempt home four point one yards per attempt to weigh four point eight pretty even ninety eight point six yards per game at home one thirteen point tomb away. So this makes sense, right? Because you want to keep the offense of team off the field when you're away you want to keep the crowd audit as much as you can you wanna control the clock and control the game in a temple of it. So that all makes sense of the dolphins and doing good in that category. When you look at receiving twelve point nine yards per reception, a home ten at home three yards difference. That can be the difference between a first down and a fourth down eleven touchdowns at home away five as you just stated for the passing. They're defensive splits at home. They have ten sacks away. They have seven secs. Interceptions. They have ten at home five away. When you're looking at, you know, tackles and fumbles four force fumbles at home for four somos away. So they're not that big of a difference. So it all comes down to the passing game. Right. And this could be skewed a little bit. When you look at the Miami. Dolphins schedule it opened up the season at home against Tennessee time with Ryan tannehill. And week two. They went and play the jets. Away. Then Ryan tannehill played the raiders at home. But then from there they went on the road to play the patriots play the Bengals Ryan tannehill. Started both games basically finished both games. Finished a bangles game came back home to play the bears. That's what Brock Osweiler started in the lions on the road against Texans home against the jets than away against the Packers. So it could be skewed there with passing rushing pretty much, even but it's still a big difference. When you look at the passing game. So we talked about Frank words beginning of the show, and we did that on purpose to kind of lead into this situation. And we talked about Ryan tannehill to lead until last conversation, it's openly up to the coaches to put these players in the best position to succeed. So we're looking at the final game. We kinda laid it all out in the past few segments. Now, let's put the pen to the paper. Let's make our final game plan your head coach Adam gates year defensive coordinator. Matt Burke, your offense coordinator Dowell loggains saw. So what are you doing to make this game successful the it Miami Dolphins Gimmie three bullet points on offense? And then how I'm gonna ask me three bullet points on defense. And that's how the dolphins will win this game. Go ahead. Sign on offense. We are if I'm Adam gave like I said earlier, we're getting in twenty one personnel. And we're getting information from Ryan tannehill before the play starts. So we're going to help him with his adjustment not playing for four or five weeks, however long. It's fin we're gonna get him the information he needs to make some place. So he's making easy progressions. He's making one read and then make an at rip. So, you know, so we're going to again have Drake gore in just sickie in the game at the same time. K? That's that's gonna be bullet point number one for me as twenty one personnel. Number two is we are eliminating pre snap. Penalties. We absolutely cannot overcome all the obstacles in this game. And also shoot ourselves in the foot by committing false starts and having. Tore exchanges between the center and quarterback. Because I can't imagine they've had that many. Granted they've have someone in practice recently. But throughout the season, you know, it's all about, you know, being able to cross something off in your mind and not even have to think about something and Brian's in a hill. Jake Brennan, they're still going to have to think about that exchange. I think so too is absolutely eliminating these pre snap penalties. And the number three is going to be keeping the ground game involved at all times. And we've seen. Opening scripts from Adam gays that get away from the running game when it's initially successful. And you want to be able to get that ground game established and maintain it because you're gonna be able to keep Andrew luck in that potent offense off the field. You're gonna be able to put our defense and a position where they can have longer time to figure out what they're going to do and their next stance. And it's it's just going to be good for interdependent football to be able to keep Angie luck off the field and give our offense a chance to establish time of possession and grind out victory. Because I think that's our best way to win is going to be grinding it out so defense my Panetta had get to the quarterback. And I know we talked about the front four. So you gotta have the Andre branch. The camera wakes Akeem, Spence devan God Shaw. Robert Quinn Cameron wake. Those guys to rotate you gotta keep those guys fresh, and you gotta find every way to get to the quarterback of whether that means you blitz. Bobby McCain an avian Howard Minka Fitzpatrick bring those linebackers down in the box to help stop the run. That's going to be the key for me get into the gin, dander, lock forcing into make mistakes and dropping down the box whether Shaw Jones, you know, teaching McDonnell maybe having roam around and drop down the box kinda add another linebacker presence up in that front seven. That's the way to stop the run. I said Eric Brown said Jack Doyle mean those guys who can go out there and beat us. I don't wanna see Kiko Alonzo on him. I don't wanna see Racal McMillan, but tedium McDonald's shot Jones cover the tight ends hope that they can stick to their men and and completely erased them from this game. Because that's how this game's going to be one. And then make Fitzpatrick do not take him off the field. Please God do not take him off the field. If he's going to be on the boundary. Let him play on the boundary if he's going to cover TY hill and Ryan grant, Chester Rogers, whoever may be. Move him around haven't play safety, do whatever it takes to get him on the field because he's probably best playmaker in that secondary. And this offense are they're going against women. They have yet to see this year my opinion and right now, they're playing the best football their career. So or the best football season. So go out there. Stop the run get to the path get to the quarterback and force Andrew to make mistakes in the past game. And that's how you out there win this one. There you have it our path to victory for the Miami Dolphins, Adam as if you're listening if you're game him any different than what we just said rip it up and get going on a new one just take our bullet points, put them into your script. And you will win the game. It's all easier said than done if you took a look at Peter king's column football morning in America. I think that's what it's called now. Or whatever it is. He had a behind the scenes talk with drew Brees and Shawn Payne, and some of the coaches, and it was just fascinating to see how they picked players to attack. And how they worked on these things in practice. For many weeks and many days and for many reps and some of it worked in a game and some of it failed tremendously. And that's what we see. We don't see how the sausage is made. We see the final product and sometimes things work out. Sometimes they don't we're all scratching our heads. But we don't really know. What's really going on behind the scenes, so yes, we can say here we can say these are the pats victory. But at the end of the day the players need to execute as well dolphins season. Again begins on Sunday as Adam gates said at six game season from here on out. But if with a loss that could very well end as well, we'll have your colts recap after the game most likely on Monday night or Tuesday morning. And then of course, our preview against the Buffalo Bills later next week. But I it's the Miami Dolphins.

Stats & Eggs, 9/24: Nick Mullens is ready to go in Week 3

"Good Morning I'm rob. Stats Carreira today is Thursday September. Twenty Fourth Two thousand twenty here's what's happening with your San Francisco Forty niners. The niners returned to practice yesterday for the first time since the disaster that was the jets game on Sunday nothing too surprising to report on the injury front today Jimmy G. D. Four, Kevin Coleman and Rahim mustard all missed practice dre greenlaw and George. kitto were limited and Jason. VERITA was full go for the first time since week one because of all the injuries. At the running back spot. Jerick McKinnon will likely make his first start as a forty niner since signing his four year thirty million dollar deal in two thousand eighteen kyle. Shanahan. How confident are you that Jerick McKinnon can handle that workload with his injury history? I'm very confident he he's done a great job and all the recipes gone in these two weeks every time he's gone opportunities came through for us. Obviously, those two guys being outed should get more opportunities this weekend he deserves it. I know he's excited for and we're excited seem in case you're wondering McKinnon hasn't rushed for one hundred yards in a game since two thousand fourteen but he also has that twenty carries in a game just once it is entire career. Ni- mentioned that Jimmy Garoppolo is not practicing that sets the stage for Nick Mullins to take the reins at quarterback Trent. William. Says, mullins has been all business this week lockdown. Mom you can tell that they get out of quarterback install meaner you Sam going over the game plan have maybe have script she is just like he has a ton of video see anybody on walk past the time. You. Know see him going over in his head. Don't even notice me don't even speak. Is Kinda. The same thing I used to see who kirk cousins a long time ago on countless Munir same mind frame when I see him how serious he takes game. As an offense. Lami love to see it. Oh Trent I was with you right up until the end. Hopefully he plays better than kirk cousins. He's been terrible this year. Mullins hasn't started since twenty eighteen when he got the nod for eight games and he threw thirteen touchdowns, ten interceptions and two hundred and eighty four yards per game. Regardless, of WHO's under center the field underfoot has certainly been a big topic of conversation this week the NFL has said things are all good but that won't exactly put the players minds at ease Bolanos tell you the week we're not gonNA think about it now go across in mind but when you got a three hundred pound, I'm in front of you as trying to please you back I think deserve is kind of falls to on the back burner and. I think for me. That's what it's GonNa be I'd hate to see what happened if anybody else goes down on Sunday but at this point who's left to get hurt We always give you something to read something to watch and something you might have missed something to read on this Thursday is Matt Barrow Story in the Athletic about former forty niners tight and Greg Clark who back in the day suffered an injury similar to what tyrod Taylor of the chargers is going through. Now, a team doctor accidentally punctured a lung while. Giving a painkilling injection in the ribs now unlike Taylor Clark actually played the entire game after that. But what happened after the game is even crazier go check it out something to watch. Okay. This isn't exactly forty niners related, but I did see it because Jennifer Lee Chen of NBC Sports, Bay area posted a video of it on twitter thirty-three-year-old Maya Gabeira. A seventy three and a half foot wave. It is the biggest wave surfed by anyone during the twenty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty, winter season, and the video of it is awesome. something. You may have missed the forty nine or spent the week at the greenbrier resort in West Virginia. To avoid the cross country flights between Games at METLIFE stadium. The resort is located in White Sulphur Springs which apparently was known for its healing waters about two hundred years ago. Shanahan what do you think about that? When did not know that about the the healing powers of the water so I'll stop with a bottle of water and get right to that for players and could use are. Now that's going to do it for this edition of stats and eggs stay tuned for the gold standard. Parkas where Levin, black and I talked with former forty niners quarterback j t O'Sullivan, he tells us what's up with Jimmy G., what he can do going forward and how amazed the is that former teammate Frank Gore is still playing in the national football league.

Week 13 Waivers + Full Stream Ahead, Wanna Play a Game? - Fantasy Football Podcast for 12/1

"Welcome to the fantasy. Footballers podcast with your host. Andy holloway moore and mike. Reid alkyl men we did it. We made to december. Oh man i tell you just say we made it through the game that too. I mean now is its own. Who endeavor ernie venture i. I did hear some rumors that the eagles were pursuing kindle hinton after the game there some interest on both sides for an acquisition. I think based on what we saw this last week. Kindle hidden is a clear upgrade four man and you also have the fact that he comes very cheap. he's a practice squad wide receiver very affordable and considering that even next year in the twenty twenty one season carson wentz carries a dead cap of fifty nine million dollars. The ooh sorry. Eagles fans last night was to me when i watched that game. I know it's many things that i want to hear your thoughts. It was a game plan built for a fledgling rookie quarterback that needs to be protected from himself. And i believe there were seventeen. Pass completions to non wide receivers in that game. Maybe more boston. Scott dallas goddard richard rodgers miles sanders. I believe full had two catches and led the wide receiving core. I i yeah. I mean i have to imagine that. What carson wentz was saying to himself or what. The coaches were saying to wins was. Don't throw it anywhere. Cornerback is 'cause you're ball so bad only throw it against linebackers. They've know about you. I mean goodness he look i you know mike is always been the i. I don't really believe in cars. I've been on the other side. I've i've many times in the past thought genuinely carson wentz was a great quarterback. I mean he. He was an mvp candidate and took his team to the super bowl. Granted you know did not play in the super bowl but i. I don't know what's happened but it's clearly like we said it's an above the beard injury where he is shell shocked and fearful and you just hope that maybe with an off season upcoming. He can come back next year. Less fretful in the pocket. While i think part of the above the beard problem is his coach has lined his cap with mercury and he's become a mad hatter. I don't know what the crab doug peterson is doing. Like you said andy game plan meet your miles. Sanders might be their best player. And you're giving him six carries. You're giving him just to. He's gonna had two receptions. I mean i. I don't know what that was all about. You had all the whispers of they're going to use jalen hurts. They've got drives lined up for jalen hurts then they force hurts into the game. There's a false start. he throws a pass. it's completed and then they take her herself field. What what's the point of that. What did that accomplish it. Absolutely nothing as one of the weirdest things. I had seen him because they took off the field for that for the first time this season it was like this is now. We're gonna see what hurts can do. And to that point in the game when said. I don't believe even completed a pass. They hadn't got houses yardage at all and all of a sudden you know his first pass jalen hurts completes it. They moved the ball. That's the spark. We need to get back in there to take that sac which he did on the following. Play seahawks won the game. Twenty three to seventeen Chris carson made the return only eight carries but ended up with a touchdown probably managing his workload a little bit. Yeah carlos was actually the primary running back carries and then decay metcalf. I mean this is a conversation to call. Cap was ten for one. seventy seven. He just missed a touchdown on his fifty yard catch. But here we are with you. Know shenanigans from russell wilson anti tyler lockett for back to back years here where looked lock. It has not been reliable or consistent since that. Hot start are you. Do you have any reaction to that. I mean is he just locked in rest of season no matter what high. I can't imagine not starting him. But i totally understand me. You know you look at the last two previous games to this one. He had nine targets in each of those games. Use a wide receiver one last week. You you have to play him in order to get the big games and there's just not many players out there that have the potential to be the number one wide receiver on the week. He's done it twice this year. So i totally agree and i mean i would never continue to fight that lock. It is the one. Dj metcalf is the one on this team and he is a dominant force That you know the the nfl will be trying to reckon with for years but at the same time lock. It is an integral part remember. He was he was also a little bit. Banged up this. Last week in practice you know somewhat questionable for this game so the fact that his utilization he wasn't really You know the ball wasn't going his way as often as as usual david more involved I think you'll see see better days for it ahead. It's like it's it's dj. More tyler. Lockett is having dj morris season except he started really hot so you had that false sense of confidence that oh these first three games. This is tie the lock at this is what the seattle seahawks are going to be for. The remainder of the year russ is going to be a gourmet chef. Cooking the entire season and forced. That is not the case. But i'm jason that you you play him on a weekend and week out basis. You just have to if you haven't already adjusted what you believe. Tyler lockett is for your team heading into the playoffs. You might want to make those Those those mental adjustments weeks one through a russell. Wilson's averaging was averaging three hundred and seven passing yards per game three point seven touchdowns weeks nine through twelve. He's averaging two sixty six and one point three. So you're not getting cooking. Russell wilson yet either. And then with carlos hyde fifteen for twenty two by the way primary ball carrier fifth row for twenty two carson was eight for forty one had the touchdown his workload should increase. What do you do as a fantasy football player with any bit of this eagles offense will leave it there you play him i'm playing chris carson moving forward i to me this was a workload management thing but you're just just eagles side mike eagles. I'm sorry i i heard seahawks. I heard a bird and then we'll move forward from close enough but what about like miles sanders in the fact that he's gone down every week in any of the wide receiving corps the wire you gotta abandoned abandoned ship. Go ahead i keep. I keep waiting for talent to win out. Wide receiver core. It's not going to happen because they've got a genuine and major quarterback problem obviously god. It's been great these last couple of weeks miles sanders. though you you're gonna you're gonna continue to play. He is to talented. And i don't expect him to get six carries next week. Just because he got six carries this week he's he's still involved and gets the dump offs so i you know you're gonna continue with the addition of carlos dunlap to this seattle seahawks defense like we haven't really highlighted him on the on this podcast because you know we. We don't often talk about defenders like that but seattle. There they've improved. They have improved on the defensive side of the ball a lot. They're they're actually able to generate pressure and get to the quarterback now and look mandates. Seattle's the schedule for the dsp. Moving into the fantasy playoffs has been juicy. And you just thought. There's no way i could play this defense in in those type of matchups but i think you have to consider it now. Wha- two weeks go ahead jason. They've had two good weeks in a row. nope touchdown. Dsp scoring but but solid weeks against arizona and philadelphia. Now you've got the giants with the backup quarterback the jets with a backup team and the washington football team As ask three matchups. I i agree. I think you can continue to stream seattle and i. I'm gonna say this. Just my opinion i don't think miles. Sanders is a guaranteed start. I think if you do that you are. You're doing it on the basis of what you hoped he would be this year not on the basis of reality right now. I think if you have other options for miles sanders it that you don't need to feel guilty putting him on your bench. A lot of the connection is between you know. This is a running back sharing some of the backfield snaps on an offense. That is as inept as any football. I think they had gone something. Like twenty drives in scored one touchdown at some point in time and then just lowers your probability of success at the position. And i think that there are some players Right now where. I've seen the reaction on twitter. Some people feel more confident putting frank gore into their lineup than miles sanders. Who's put up seven points in five points. I just don't think it's outlandish because it's not a good offense right now. And you've got green bay new orleans these next to. Yeah exactly you have green bay. I know phenomenal new orleans. Not so much. I think it's just a matter of what you have. When i say you're going to start him. It's because i assume that he's you know there's not a better option out there if you're you know if you're looking at your last running backs spot and you're between miles sanders and a cream hunt. Sure yeah you. Can you can pivot because of the bad offense but like for instance as waiver wire show. I don't think there's a waiver wire running back out there That i would put in my lineup over the hope in miles sanders jamaal williams or damian. Harris latavius murray. Some of the people will be talking about james white. Those are those are who you're going to be deciding. And i would end up on the miles sanders side of the. Yeah i would agree with that. And i think it's more players like david montgomery or assure you know kenyan drake been benched by people in the past stuff like that. Yeah twenty opportunities. Averaging twenty opportunities the previous two games another snaps say. They're going down but his opportunity is still sky. High except for the game against seattle. All right let's talk news news and notes from around the league all right the ever. Do we ended up all my goodness. We have ravens steelers wednesday night football. It's been again Now apparently both jk dobbins mark ingram are eligible to play. The team is not officially reported. But this could throw a wrench in anybody who i mean. Imagine you picked up. Gus edwards to play him last thursday. The game has now been moved to wednesday of this week. Which is in the face a trickle down effect of and at this point like a lot of leagues put into effect covid stipulations. Where if this doesn't happen you can give it to this player but the game's probably going to happen. And if you put gusts in there and you affected him to be running back you have to live with gusts now. We don't have a unless you can go get benny snell or you. Can i mean are you playing. Anthony mcfarland over gus edwards with all three of them. They're probably but maybe you do i. Maybe i don't know. Yeah i i think you might against this steelers front but yeah it's very interesting in the game is not in primetime. It is in the afternoon old noon. Football dot com. That's right wednesday afternoon. Football dot com is win. This game is played. we don't we. Don't have that domain yet do we. We do have quite a foot clan. Member came through got it and forwarded it to waste wednesday afternoon. Football dot com. Maybe they did purses name. I would shut him lived. Oh my goodness that is hilarious. And it had a trickle down effect. Steelers washington moved to monday of next week. Ravens cowboys moved to tuesday. So we do get tuesday. Nfl dot com next week. And i think the game domain showed shoulder to nick nick. Nick handled thanks to go. Yeah i did forget a couple of announcements at the top. I'll get back into the news but we did pick our Hashtag mega done winner. Which thank you everybody. Who tweeted that hashtag. That made it through don. All of the feedback on the mega. Don was amazing as always. I'm glad you guys look forward to it and bo bo. L. one The gift card for megaton and then we also picked our. Kenny golladay signed jersey winner. Justin h justin h congratulations. Like h h johnson. An h yes. Yeah that's his name. His parents went with that Single digit name. So it's like brooks barbara's middle name. Oh yeah what is your middle name again brooks the latter. See okay jones. Do you see you pronounce back or do you or do you go like right. Approx learn how many people ask you what the stands for. Is the sea silence a lot of times a lot of time. I might have made it easier on you all right. This was huge news. yesterday. I am devastated by news. It does it just seems like we've got enough going on. Why would this have to take place. The flying v himself will fuller pilfering. There has been suspended. Oh over he d violation and let me let me let me tell you he did it. He's not innocent Because if you're innocent you you go ahead and appeal a six game suspension. You don't take responsibility instantly on social media and now we'll fuller is out We spent forever on yesterday's show talking about what he means to deshaun watson will fuller is the wide receiver. Four on the year. he was My sweet sweet darling in my dynasty league and now heading into the playoffs he is done for the season. Does what the report does man. Oh so yesterday. I was with my son in so my my son's playing fantasy football for the first time this year. I'm co managing with. Our team is dominating. We have the most points. In our footballers family league. We have locked up the bye week and he is huffing and puffing his chest about how we got the bi week. We're winning the championship. I'm mike dude. We are a long way. Stay home she just just pump the brakes and then a couple of hours later we lose will fuller on my dude member when i told you to take it easy. We've got a big problem now. Yeah you never presume the future and fantasy that's for sure and now we'll fuller is out Implications here for fantasy through this. I mean obviously brandin cooks the wide receiver one for this team moving forward and his a locked and loaded every week. Start beyond that. You now have the reemergence of kiki. Qt as kind of the second option in this offense. but i know shawn watson. i've watched him play football for a long time. In one thing he really is comfortable doing is leaning on the tight end position as well. So george jerkins is somebody that i'm looking at at. He's at the top of the list. I know we've had. Darren fells weeks earlier in the season. He's kind of trickled down the the depth chart I'm looking jordan akins Certainly and you know at this point in time you know you have ran akaba hurt and we're moving forward without well fuller so it takes the ceiling down for deshaun watson unfortunately not just the ceiling. I mean we already in our playoff primer you. The texans were highlighted. And it was. What do you do with the shawn watson Worrying about the playoffs. Now dan since we were talking about that will fuller really caught fire. Brandin cooks jumped in those flames as well so it was. Oh well. we're not gonna worry about shawn watson but on the road against chicago. That's the playoffs week. One in week. Fourteen then on the road against the colts the next week. That's data this. Man this sucks a lot and no hopkins. That's not good. Yeah and i do think aitken's is going to be the biggest beneficiary genuinely he had to. It's kind of a one of the things you don't see if you look at the stats but if you watch that game he had to end zone. Opportunities he dropped touchdown he had one ball. That was just barely missed thrown but he had a chance for two touchdowns in that game. They're gonna have to throw the ball somewhere and you know i think some would love to say okay now. Do johnson's going to get involved with david. Johnson and that might be true. Johnson gets back from the concussion. He could be a beneficiary in the past code as well but unfortunate breaking news. It's essentially a season ending injury of sorts for your team in the game next year. Yeah so i mean. He's going into the the off season looking for a contract knowing that he will miss week one. Yeah but there is better news. It's not all bad news. Continue on and we've got a run of good news. Yes dalvin cook not expected to miss anytime. Do the ankle injury suffered on sunday. I'll write right. Josh jacobs confident. He can play on sunday. Okay all right all right. Panthers coach matt rhule's said dj. Moore's ankle x rays. Were negative idea how that's possible. That's they didn't x ray. The need they needed to x-ray the neat. I did the wrong body part. I tell you man. I've watched this plan. I don't understand how his ankle got her. It's all been the knee but hey guys are negative. They're on their by week. Maybe he's back right away. That could be big news. And then julian edelman. Oh this isn't good news talk. We're done with the good news. Serve covid list. Not anybody could have played him when he came back. So he's on. He's on reserved lists now mr reservation here on our pelvic. What do the the. The injuries just stacked up in the age. And all of that. I i think atamans fantasy relevant days are gone And then the broncos. Hey good news they got. They have their quarterback's back. The quarterback room has been returned drew. Lock right rippin They all tested negative. Been cleared to return to the team They will now all be staying in separate bubbles from one another after that experience so Any other news that we need to get into here now. I think that's going to do it before we get into the waiver. Wire this episode of the fantasy. Football is brought to you by head and shoulders available at walmart this year. We're doing a new segment every thursday. We're going to be picking up. Our are picking our up to one hundred players of the week where we're trying to dive a little bit deeper. Maybe you're desperate for a flex play we're looking for guys. I might be on your waiver. Wire it's tough and it's tough to take your shots on here but when you when you get that player who goes up to one hundred. It is a sweet sweet victory this past week. I had cole beasley. Who bailed me. When he threw a touchdown. Pass and cole beasley. I like moving forward. I think that it was that was kind of a strange game but with john brown. I are. kobe's is going to get more targets but gabe davis in buffalo is. We'll be talking about him as well in the waiver. Wire but if you want to try and take your hair up to one hundred cole. Beasley my man did. When he threw a touchdown pass. You could take your hair up to one hundred with head and shoulders available at walmart. Pick up today and check out.

Simulcast is subject to change it presented by bud light platinum coach. All right waiver time and we do have by weeks this week. They're back the buccaneers in the panthers. What they doing manning to the week third and you know just a little knife twist is losing well fuller. I'm looking at my dynasty team. And i while i'll just put robby anderson into that wide receiver study fun and we've got a buy week this week Same goes for any of those buccaneers wide. Receivers that you've been taking your shots but that's you face in brooks a divisional winner gets the division in the bye week by week. Yeah yeah so. I'm i think in this. Pd thing is directly. Correlated to brooks brooks. Did something Exchanged some of that. Gold bouillon he exciting away in in an effort to maybe. Have you been sending supplements to will fuller on. I do not appreciate these accusations. Okay the not deny them. The judge is above board. Hey try this try this. It's approved but yeah brooks wide receiver. That i certainly won't be starting against you. Brooks is one of the top drop candidates from twitter and instagram travis full We just talked about it. But fogel you can You can move on. You don't need him into your lineup. And then tyler boyd is another drop candidate I don't know if i dropped either. Boy is he is like sterling shepherd or something where you can kind of. Keep him on your bench. If it's an emergency like i don't know the wide receiver four goes out for the year. You can slide them in there. And i feel more confident with boyd than any of the eagles wide receivers i. I would agree there. But i mean this is where we take a look at say. Are there players on the waiver wires that are available that you would be willing to drop boyd. Four for instance samuel is out there and available. He's available and about half of leagues right now. obviously was very involved this past week in and every week then manufacturer touches for these wide receivers who are hybrid wide. Receiver running back options. Would you drop tyler boyd. For one hundred percent below last ad yeah was a must add. Divas must start from me. Emmy he's gonna take on buffalo and In in the playoffs depot will be playing washington dallas arizona and the way that they use depot kinda highlighted. This yesterday the match ups don't concern because they just do tap passes. They do handoffs. They don't try to get depot down the field before letting nick mullins get on the ball. Yeah he's he's just so heavily involved in this offense when he's healthy and he was immediately the wide receiver nine on the week. He is a spin legitimately. If you have a need to start to be. I would spend all the fab. I have to acquire. Deebo samuel agreed. I do not feel that way about a couple of other rookies. That are candidates for pickup. Mike mentioned one earlier. Gabriel davis and. Then there's michael pittman i do. Like gabriel davis. He's made plays this year. But we have seen this team without john brown at times this past week. Gabriel davis had a nice week. four targets. Three for seventy nine and a touchdown that being said the touchdown did come from cole beasley and he will be involved. I am not as enthusiastic to spend up on pittman. And gabriel davis. Just because i don't think i can rely on their The way that the team is focusing their offense i think. Gabriel davis can be a product of a. You know a second or third read a big play. But i don't think is building around davis or pittman and that concerns me. I'd much rather go with cole beasley again. Even though he didn't have a huge game. Yeah i agree. I would rather have whole then. Gabriel davis. a nice thing is. If you're going after davis at someone that you can start that you don't have to spend up for. Maybe maybe you've already spent all of your money and you're looking at who will go through the waivers named and i can get for free at i think. Gabriel davis is probably the most realistic unclaimed him and tim. Patrick are the two that i think can go through. Waivers completely unclaimed and you could get them for free. Gave davis the thing to highlight is in the three games without john brown. Averaging over five targets the game nearly fifty yards in those matchups and john brown won't be back jumbo on. I are yeah absolutely and like. I said i he. He could have a good game. Because michael pittman is gonna have another good game or two over the course of the year heading into the playoffs. They just feel. I feel nervous about Sliding him into my line up. When i have other options. I'd rather play like jason said tim. Patrick now that quarterbacks are a part of the denver offense again allen lazard is what interesting what. Let's talk about lazard. Because i i remember. He got hurt that game watching that game. It looked very serious. But i tried to find something on it and i couldn't find anything came back in. Yeah he cleared to come back. Worry about that. Hit was that lazard had missed time. 'cause he had surgery on his core like he had and he took a shot right to the middle of his body court. Yeah exactly but he. He was able to come back in and the the playoffs for the green bay. Packers are so delightful that allen lazard if he's still is that guy that if if you don't need to plug him in immediately i think lazard is a fantastic player to just have on your bench and watch for the next couple of games and and see if those snap percentages. Get back up into the eighties. I think i think you can start him. I i do i mean. He had six targets in in limited snaps and missed whatever. Chunky did miss In the game you're just throwing him right back or thrown him in. Yeah i mean you're talking about detroit as the next week. So i i would be willing to start allen lazard against detroit. When i watched the game before that injury. He looked like the clear number. Two to me Couple of other rookies to talk about. I just want to bring them up. Because of target totals. I feel pretty much the same about them as i do Gabriel davis and michael pittman. And you guys can weigh in denzel. Moms you guys know. I loved him coming into the league. La members your ends on mems are men's on men's dan rea street games of eight targets so so denzo. I know that it's the jets. It's there's us stink stank about the new york jets. But he has played five games as a professional in the nfl and he has seen seven or more targets. Four of them. He just his second game against kansas city chiefs three targets but other than that seven eight but not all targets are made this. I was gonna save the literal same thing as jason. I love denzel. Mims but i would rather play perryman than denzel men so that tells me. I don't wanna play the number two jets wide receiver. Who might be the number three with with crowder. Now you know now. The darnold is back. i like them a lot. I just don't like the situation if you want to grab him hoping that this is the week that you know. They fire adam gays. Because the week after men's i'm sure we'll catch fire that's what players do when they're Free to be whole. But i'm guessing that he gets fired in the offseason. They would've already let him go by now if i don't think he's getting fired. He's part of the their plan to not win. Games the down plan but three straight games of eight targets. Three straight games of over sixty yards. I'm not saying he's coming in and he's a league winning type of player but he is he. He's in he won't order. He won't score any points. i like. He won't score touchdowns that's the one thing. That's the problem with that. Offense is there. I mean you're talking about seattle's defense and in the rams in cleveland Mike though you are in a situation. Let's say dj more with his ankle knee right. Misses a game. You're looking at all these wide. Receiver options depot is not an option in our lady's probably not an option in a highly competitive league. He's been picked up. So when when you bring up all of these names and there are some others that we could talk about sammy. Watkins made his way out onto the field again. kiki qt brought him up. You don't have kenny kenny. Bill's gone willfuller is gone randall. Cobb has gone right davis. If he's out there corey davis vs other all of these. And the ones we've named before. Who are you targeting You looking for spots a if you're looking for spots star so i would. I would prioritize. Kiki just based off of There there was that i look. I'm old enough to remember when there was hype for kiki. Qt coming into a fantasy season and his quarterback is great. so i i would prioritize him then. I would go corey. Davis and i mean th then it comes in the third option would be is. Do i go sammy. Watkins or do i go Go with denzel mims and so some is is up there for me but kiki will be the number one of those kind of remaining remaining guys. Okay i want to talk about some wide running back options here on the waiver wire. Are you dropping. Jd mckissic at this point or are you holding onto him In a james white esq kind of hope. Where if you catch the hines game. If you catch the passing game mckissic will be the beneficiary. There are moving on. I think you can move on i. It would depend i. He's not he's not an auto drop but he is someone that there's a better option mckissic or frank gore. I'd rather have gore. I'd rather have frank gore. i think i'd rather have mckissic gore. Somebody gonna talk about for sure momentarily. darrell henderson land. Four games running back thirty eight twenty four fifty seven sixty one. The ship has sailed on. Darrell henderson this point are we. Are we moving on your. It's the the rams are tough because cam akers looked looked. Fantastic cam akers. You know only nine opportunities but turned into the running back. Fourteen on the week against san francisco so at this point you gotta start calling your shots for future games and i would. I'd rather have acres at this point. Yeah you expect that what he didn't let it deals a crap shoot man. We'll get him more time because they you know the they weren't able to move the ball as a team they were. They were struggling a little bit and then here comes then they give it to cam. Akers he bus off a sixty one yard run than they let him try to get into the end zone he succeeds. There had a really good game. So i would expect it to be even more of timeshare if not a flipped timeshare acres favor. But i don't really think you can rely on either. I think both could be rostered. But i would not start either. One there are. There are some Big additions to the running back spot. Potentially if you need to start there are players that are out there and let's talk about the one that you just brought up though and let's play a game. Let's play games. Yeah you might not want his over. Let's play a game called frank gore or jonathan. Taylor you wanna play. I wanna play this. I don't wanna play this bid to be so selective from weeks from from the bad weeks on okay. Go on no no no. Let's just go here. Frank gore a jonathan taylor total snaps total snaps on the year. Who do you think has more smith frank frank gore jonathan taylor. I would guess frank gore. Yeah no i'm sorry. It's jonathan taylor. Three three ten to two ninety. And what about more touches on the year frank gore. Jonathan taylor who's got more touches jiji. Yeah this is a setup. One sixty one to one fifty four total touches so inevitably more rushing yards. Who's got more rushing yards on the. Please buddy jonathan taylor. Oh it's not five. Twenty one to five eighteen. Frank gore more rushing yards to jonathan taylor. But but let's let's temper. That moore who has more forced missed tackles on rushing attemps. Oh maher who more missed tackles. I mean you know. That's not o no. I'm gonna go. Frank gore yeah frank gore eighteen. Jonathan taylor just twelve forced ms. And here's your selective stat jason. Last four games played fantasy points per game. Who's higher that one. I i i know. It's frank gore. Yeah it's frank gore Frank gore is facing las vegas this week who i believe it. Twenty ninth in the league against the run. Been seattle los angeles cleveland last week. Eighteen for seventy four on the ground last two weeks rb eleven eighteen. Frank gore is not special at all. We know that in terms of fantasy production. He will be a one hundred percent floor. Play for your team. You are not going to get burned. Starting frank gore this week. Where you you could get burned with latavius. Murray you could burn damian harris. You could get burned with james light. Who by the way like no passes happen to run the ball into the end zone twice. So i agree that you won't get burned. But it's going to take the touchdown but it's not gonna cook your meal either right. Exactly that's said. Mike is not gonna burn. It is not going to cook. And i would rather your meal against las vegas this week. Eighteen carries. I'm in man. I'm frank gore is in play for. He's in my one of my lineup's. Because i just need points know all right. Let's i need ten points. Let's do a water bet for this week. Jonathan taylor frank gore. What is the matchup for indianapolis. Was that wind them for al. I may have double tap the button trying to trying to get a good deal. He plays trying to make the connection with the indianapolis colts. Play against the houston. Texans oh yeah yeah. Make the bet. Johnny taylor sees a. That's tough because touchdown probability seems higher for jonathan taylor but i'll make the back because it's entertainment waterbed. I would've done anything for the fifty five right there. I was hoping he hit it again. I know the problem with this bet is that we're saying you could go get frank gore right now off the waiver wire. Jonathan taylor is not on your waiver. Wire exactly exactly frank. Gore is the top of the list for me. I know that some people probably wanna roll latavius out there. that's fine. i don't think you're gonna get. I mean he's he's foreplay to right. I mean he's going to have opportunities against yeah he will against atlanta Those two guys are. I think they have to be near the top of the list of you need somebody. Right now. Benny snell. I mean we'll see. We'll get to see on wednesday. How much. Benny snell has evolved with james conner on the covert list. We don't know how long that james conner is going to there. Snell is a must add. If he's out there must add because we're in that time of year that you need to have these backups on on the bench in case a starter. Mrs. time like james conner conner's not gonna play next week either right. I mean monday night. It made me improbable. It moved to tuesday. I don't so days as the day. And i know they're. They're monday there monday. The the raiders. Game got moved to tuesday but the steelers are moved from sunday to monday. I don't know exactly what day he went on. Okay or test positive but it's it is. I think it's possible. Connor could be back next week but the bell would be the highest at if we knew he was starting next week though right Yeah i gore over anybody else. I mean he may be an awful. Oh buffalo next. Monday is grab snow. We don't know who it will. We'll find out tomorrow. How much does anthony mcfarland. Actually get to play the rookie running back. Benny snell has not explosive. But the player i want to highlight here who he's available about half of. Espn leagues a little bit less on yahoo but jk dobbins is on some waiver wires and we it looked like the transformation had happened a couple weeks ago. I know in in in. Nfl football time and fantasy football time. That's ages ago but jk dobbins was the leader the last time we saw the baltimore ravens leader of the backfield and the schedule for them if they actually make that transition. Anyone who's watched the team would say. Yeah you should move over to. Jk dobbins being the primary runner dallas next week in the playoffs. Cleveland jacksonville and the giants. Dobbins could be a guy who turns into a playoff superstar. Yeah if they commit to one. Back elliott huge. yeah And then you know the to patriots running backs if you really if you wanna get like real nervous in your in your Gi area that damian harris james wight. They both seem real sketch. I will take them out. I would take james out of those too. Yeah i agree that they're both a little sketchy but here's near the goal line. You know you saw it with rex. Burke and james white has that role and even though we only had one target this past week. You know that. James i mean. He's had games even with cam where he's evolved in the past game to set up those great screens at gopher thirty forty yards James white would be the one because of the pr baseline. And i think. Ironically the the the touchdown upside over harris But one other name. That that i would bring up. I know we talked about good. News with josh jacobs But devante booker. Yes is if josh jacobs were to be out of the game which is still in play if he goes out there. he's tested his ankles ankle. Isn't they're hopeful. He's he's here but if he's out devante booker who has been pretty good very good gets to play against the jets as the only show in town for the rare for the raiders. I would. I would certainly be taking shot on booker for the upside. Yeah we We will learn a lot with the benny snell situation. And some of these injuries there. There are a number of players that are in that category of you should put them on your bench because what if something happens. A snell has the double effect there because connor is injury. Prone is already on the cova list. Snails should be on rosters. Tony pollard should be on rosters. Jamaal williams should be on. Rosters jamaal williams. I mean i. It's that's gonna feel speaking of an irritated. gi tracks. Like i think all williams might be he might just be a flex player moving forward and so he would have more value than than twenty police at this point. Yeah it is possible and there was to the snell confidence. We'll see it on the field tomorrow but yeah there were talks about getting more involved from the team saying he deserves more carries ahead of the injury so he will have an opportunity. Mcfarland is not a player. I think that they would make any sort of belco but it will be interesting to see the breakdown that will be one of many things. Were watching on the field tomorrow night. And i do think the game will happen so that will be good for the nfl schedule if it can happen Anything else at the running back position. We should touch on do you. Do you look at moscow with his. Snap count going up or just ignore him because yeah that's that's where i am ignoring him. His upside it would be only in the case of an injury. And then you still worry about the offense alexander madison throw him out there with the tony pollard. And the guy that just should be. This is the time of year where yes. You don't want them sitting on waiver wires. I guys i need you to do me a favor. It's a simple favor. It's easy helps everybody and The falkland needs so. I need you to just conveniently offer up a league winning tight end in waiver shell tight end position. Easy to find talent. Easy to find consistency. So this should not be a challenge for you. Okay well guys who are available i. It was a disappointment this past week. But jordan reed ran twenty five routes. He was the primary tight end and six targets. It's hard to find a tight end. That's going to see that on a regular basis. Granted last week really sucked. So i'm i'm not out on jordan reed yet. Robert onion is of. What was that jay. I'm the same. I i didn't say it because obviously i told you i was last week. And he was my start of the weekend. It was a complete and utter failure. But i'm not off jordan. You've got to you know we know this. With fantasy football. Every player has a good games. Bad games in you know. If if he had been hit across the middle that one time he would have been. Yes adly fine When i look at the names of everybody out there logan logo. Thomas had a good game. But he's got pittsburgh coming up. It would basically be jordan reed robert tanya and and Trey burton but in all of them. This speculative ad. I'm with handy the johnsons. You put them on your bench and see what happens. i archer. yeah. I i put them in a different order. I don't have that level of confidence in jordan reed. Because of the snaps dwelling gets in and he he ran ten routes. I would go far and away number one on this list. Ten has the You know jordan reed leans on mullins. There's a reason i know we say. If he got hit across the middle he would have had a good game right. We're we're going to say that type of thing unfortunately due to You know this would be like saying prescribing. Richard rodgers to people. I think it would be a little bit. Troubling due to the quarterback tanya is getting deep shots. Every single game doesn't always connect. But i love that. I love the week winning ability of that type of play. He would be number one if he's not roster to me and then all the rest are kind of in the same category. I do think aitken's is the clear number one on that. Pass catching list for watson but that is not somebody that look if you if you have no confidence there. I don't blame you. He hasn't done it yet so i think it's tagnon then. I'd probably go read. I guess on with you guys there and then it's burden aitken's and everybody else yup. Yeah i i. I'm totally fine with that. All right what are some defensive options for this upcoming week and the future. this is the time of year. Where if you don't have you know like i have an league record. The steelers are logged in. And i'm just gonna player you know. This is the time of year where. I'm loading up my bench right if if you have. If you're set up this is the time of year. Where i've got to to defenses on my bench potentially setting up my playoff weeks. Who do you like this week. And moving forward. Yeah i mean. There's there's a lot of good options The bears are out there and about half of leagues right because of their bad match up this last week going forward. They've got detroit and then houston. We'll have a week to see what happens with shawn watson without fuller To see maybe you would start in there but the nice thing is whenever you can find a a defense that is actually good In a good match up. That's that's the best case situation because then you look at longevity of being able to play them a future week for instance. We've talked a lot about the seahawks. i would pick them up. I'd play him. They've got a good schedule but seahawks are not as talented as as the bears on the defense side of the ball. Yeah i'm with j. The the bears are at the top of my list. The and then it's probably the the seahawks next but maybe maybe even the out consider the forty niners. I know that the matchup against josh allen always that's not necessarily what you want to attack but the forty niners defense there. They are a good defense they they can get things done a buffalo this week and then in the playoffs. Washington in dallas are their first two dozen gray and they're getting healthier with sherman. Yeah the forty niners are definitely a defense. I am looking to acquire but not for this week they i. I wouldn't want to play them against buffalo. But i am actively picking them up of already picked them up in one of my leagues because of the washington dallas and and i expect them to be a very good defense and the fact that they want against the rams means that they are playing for something. It's they're still in the playoff hunt which is also good news for george kittle. Throw that name out there as the weeks go on i don't remember what we he is. Eligible comeback but. He would only come back. i think if they're in a playoff hunt. And maybe you've you know you sneak into that semifinals or the championship. With a bad tight end. i'm not i'm not. Diametrically opposed the playing them against buffalo. This week either. This offense Unfortunately without john brown has not been as prolific agrout with two week. I mean they don't have a great running game. They don't have options outside of digs. This past week wasn't that Spectacular so not opposed to it. Cardinals have very nice Fantasy playoffs of the giants philadelphia and san francisco There's a chance you're literally facing backup quarterbacks. In all three of those games if daniel jones doesn't make it back by week fourteen He's kind of a backup in his own right and then the eagles could have moved onto. Hurts that point or else. You're getting winston mullins so somewhat interesting. They're they're a playmaking defense. You see as acm getting more work on that defense to. There's a chance you get some big plays from them kind of interesting so Another team you can look at. Yeah i agree. I think that the cardinals are a very good option For the for the fantasy playoffs and the fact that they've been kind of struggling on offense. Sometimes that can actually help the defense step up all right anybody else. You wanna bring up here Nope all right. Who plays the eagles. That's just throwing that out there because They're looking very bad. Yeah no doubt. Full stream ahead. All right Everybody to your mouse or your your track pad and i want you to Go click on. Derek carr and don do you have it up on your screen and then everybody on account of three. I want you to drop him one. Two three we dropped so. And i know it's not you know it's not a strategic as kind of doing the waiver wire exchange but it feels better to just let him go right now and then signed a new streaming quarterbacks man i cannot imagine the anguish inside of you right now and be happy having to do all of this with derek carr. Yeah i mean this is a trust trust situation here. I mean they had broken. Yeah yeah i mean you you go out on a limb for a guy. Who's having a statistically pretty good year and he he's going to destroy the jets and we all know that do not play him but know that he's going that it's going to happen. He's going to have a great week against the jets. I just thought that that fac- made at the end of the chiefs game meant something and it clearly meant. Watch watch what's gonna happen. Look the same face. When i got poop and guess maybe that's all it was. Maybe it was some bad Hotly mic screen quarterback option for week. Thirteen i'm gome with kirk cousins. The matchup against the jacksonville jaguars is not scary in the slightest and kurt. Cousins has been a scintillating. He has been a pretty good quarterback of the vikings mean. What's wild is the vikings one one. They won one game in the first six weeks. That was it like. They looked like a dumpster fire of a team and since then they have crawled back into the wild card competition and a lot of that has to do with the the way that the offense is playing with. Dalvin cook and kurt cousins. Who is the quarterback twelve right now on the sin and just yet justin jefferson. He got it done. Kirk got it done last week without adams eland. He was the qb three on the week. Throwing for three hundred and three against the carolina. Panthers gets the jags he cousins. Because this is like the these streaming guy where he usually he has a good game sometimes. He has some bad games. Why he's not just a weekly start and he's more of a streamer but this this is a good week and this would make he is on fire. Nba jam rules. Say the kirk cousins is on fire right now when you have. Elite wide receiving options like he has and you know they. They're well coached they. They're a team after that start. That is turned it around. The defense is not great but they've figured some things out it seems like that's the identifier of a good or a well. Coached team is good. I stand always for kirk cousins. I think he's a good quarterback. Oh great you do stand always forum. Just yes hopefully doesn't derek carr you this week. No i like cousins because cousins. It kinda reminds me of old school. Philip rivers in in terms of fantasy where it was like. You know you you more often than not. He gave you a good game when you saw him. Opposing you in fantasy. You're like oh cool. I'll get a play kirk. Cousins ochoa to play philip rivers. And then they'd have their big game against you so I it's a good name to bring up and you're right. They're five and six now. they're they're Above the bears in that division What a turnaround that's crazy. I look for my streaming quarterback of the week. I'm going to take a shot on ryan fitzpatrick being already s this. I love against cincinnati. If he is out there as the quarterback then i you have what i believe is a locked and loaded quarterback one. It's a great matchup and pretty much the entire year while he well ryan fitzpatrick's been the starter. He was a quarterback one you know when he was a starter weeks. Two through five quarterback one every single week comes back. This last week quarterback one. He was the quarterback seven. He's just been really really great now. There's a chance to a place when the injury i happened. It was said that to a couple weeks. And i'm gonna take the shot i would. I would be willing to take fitzpatrick. Might have to pay later in the week. But i i would pick them up because i i think. The upside is there in a match against cincinnati. And i'm going to go with ryan tannehill a bit of a four-game stretch where he was not spectacular. Didn't do a lot for fantasy players. And then you're like well. He gets to play in baltimore. And in indianapolis those are going to be tough match ups and yet he delivered top ten fantasy weeks in both of them this week. He gets a matchup against cleveland. That is in the bottom third against opposing fantasy wide receiver or a quarterbacks and the nice thing about tannehill is he has one tank wide receiver away from a big play at any moment You know in. Aj brown is just incredible. Big play potential at any at any moment in time. So i i like tannehill to make it a three straight top ten. Finish week if santa hill is out there he must be picked up i i i would play him over. Its if there. If it's magic is active and playing and tannahill is obviously playing. I i would. I would play tannehill all right. And i think that's gonna do it now. There are some different waiver situations out there this week right some leagues are processing. Waivers Friday morning or thursday morning after this wednesday night game. Do we know If that's going to have any implications on these leagues or we're going to need to follow up here with the waivers. I would just say. Make sure you are checking on your league. Pay attention know what is going to happen. Who is processing Waivers and trades friday morning instead of the normal week win. Just just be aware of what's happening in and if you're listening to the show the only thing that's going to change from now to then other than the winds night game we'll just be breaking news and we'll we'll cover that on every episode right we wanna thank pristine auction for supporting the podcast.

New Waiver Wire Order, Ravens-Steelers Recap (12/03 Fantasy Football Podcast)

"Recapping the pittsburgh baltimore game giving an update on the waiver. Wire if you still have time to make some changes this is fantasy football today and five. Let's get started. Dave richardneer good evening hearing this night. We're going to publish this a little bit early. Just in case you still have time to change your waiver. Wire or dave no pleasantries. I'm sure you're doing great. Let's talk about pittsburgh and baltimore here. what we were takeaways from five point win by this teams was not a five star game really frustrating rating. How slow it took the steelers or how slow the steelers were to get going and so many drops in the game for crying out loud. I've got claypool ebron with to juju. with one. uncharacteristic rothlisberger should have had a bigger game. Benny snell was okay. I guess ninety three total yards. I think it's just okay and then for the ravens. Look they were shorthanded. Begin with rg. Three got hurt trace. Mcsorley came in. Who knew it would take trace mcsorley to get marquees brown going on the deep ball. That was a crazy play. I wouldn't count on that. I don't think you can get anything out of the ravens side of this Did like the effort from their defense. Steelers should bounce back and play bigger against washington in week. Thirteen all right so we're publishing this early because we want people to have a chance to make some changes to their waiver wire order if necessary here and maybe benny snell moves up or down. We don't know about james conner for next week. But snell has forty eight percent roster. He had almost all of the carries for the steelers. And markey's brown is seventy two percent roster. He had a pretty lucky catch. And run for a touchdown and how lucky was but not something. Reliant is david. let's get your new waiver. Wire order as josh jacobs missed practice a to a might be back this week. Which means that ryan fitzpatrick probably hands off. You shouldn't go after him if you do. Don't make them a high priority. If you are streaming the quarterback position i do think devante booker is worth prioritizing at this point. I know that there's talk. That josh jacobs should play optimistic. He didn't practice on wednesday. A this isn't a better safe than sorry. This is a risk thing. But i think that there is a chance that even if jacobs plays he won't be on a hundred percent and it's a great matchup against the jets. So booker is someone that. I go after i smell would be somebody that i go after although i would agree that if james conner is back next week snell's meaningless. Deebo samuel obviously should be somebody he's the safest guy go and pick up. If you can find him off the waiver wire and i think frank gore is probably the next best guy if you need a running back in week thirteen as a matter of fact if you need a running back and you don't want chance fab dollars or waiver priority on booker on snell because they could fall out not be the lead guy you know frank gore will be and should be at least decent as a number two fantasy running back and we talked about this on the pot earlier this week. Cam akers fantastic stash. Your team is headed to the playoffs. And cam akers on your waiver. Wire go get him. Pick them up but under bench. See what happens. I do think he does have a chance to be a difference maker for your fantasy team. What about kyle. Rudolph irv smith did not practice but adam ceiling is expected back. I think rudolph is okay. I had a tough time in a couple of weeks zach. Ertz was on the waiver. Wire ch- choosing between him and root off. And i went with ertz just thinking okay. If he's healthy he'll be back in the swing of things and we know that tight. End your big part of what. Philadelphia's offense is now. But i don't mind going after kyle rudolph if you need a tight end who you know is going to play. And there's another sleeper out there. Tyler effort who had a touchdown he released about two touchdowns last week. Decent matchup in week number. Thirteen don't have to spend a lot of fat form. A lot of people are looking for him. But i think he's got a chance to come through again as they touched on her bus tight. End if you're desperate if you need a tight and you can put them last on your priority at that position you know. The texans have played eleven games and in ten of them to pass catchers heavy. They're caught a touchdown or had ninety yards. So there's a vacancy there so keep an eye on qt. I know he's available. Almost every league jordan akins could be another one who steps. Let me let me give you one more isaiah. Coulter who's a rookie for them. Should get an opportunity to play Obviously in dynasty leagues there's one dynasty in. I'm putting a trying to figure out a five percent to try and get coulter on my bench just to see what happens for the next week or two. Okay dave let me ask you about savant. Myles gaskin what you think. About the dolphins backfield's they get ready for. Cincinnati comment was limited in practice. And hopefully gaskin back this week. I think it's going to be a rotation between the two of them. I would imagine that the coaching staff in miami has more trust in gaskin than med and gaskin has been a little more proven in passing situations and the washington didn't practice so this is a merry go round. Running back for the dolphins could be as many as three heads in that backfield. Include patrick laird but if all three of those guys are healthy i think gaskin is the best one. We could be getting the andre swift back. Darrell babbel's optimistic there. We could. We should be getting jonathan taylor back. We expect him to play and todd. Gurley was limited in practice so we could be getting him back as well and are those three running backs starts if they are playing a swift taylor and todd gurley they starts. I think they all are just by nature of the beast of the position. Gurley is the one. I'd be most scared to start. He'd be a low and number two option swift. I don't care if he's playing the bears or not. I came hicks in practice on wednesday for chicago. And that would make the matchup even better for swift. And and taylor. You've gotta figure against texans could get a lot of work do well with it all right. That's it for fantasy football today in five. Make sure you follow us. Three months on spotify leave us a nice five star of unit good comment and we'll answer your questions on sunday for dave richard. I'm adam as or thanks for listening. We'll talk to you on friday morning. I'm all thrown off with this. Nfl schedule on friday.

Sooner Than Expected?

Around the Horn

Sooner Than Expected?

"It around the whole Jackie macmullan Sarah Spain and Frank Guy Solo. The first word Kevin's arranged. And how real? The possibility is that he can come back and play resumed NBA season. This mom is eleven since his Achilles tear he also had to deal with corona virus. These one month has that nets. General Manager Sean Marks publicly commenting on the possibility. Though says he doesn't anybody's time line after this layoff but anything's possible. The Nets were the seven seat when the Season Stop Frank Solo you've covered the NBA for us. If you also do pre and post game for the Yes network on these Brooklyn Nets. What are you hearing? And how do you think durant should be approaching this? It's a real possible. I believe the plan all along with them. Both kyrie Irving Kevin Durant guys coming off of surgery to play together in the playoffs. I do not believe that one guy will return without the other couple of things. Tony Sean Marks. Who's from New Zealand sent to New Zealand media outlet? He's not going down this road unless there's a chance that Kevin Durant could play and remember this to that. I could Toronto. I know that I could have probably be playing Toronto. But that was the scene of the crime where he made worry suffered that injury. But I believe he'll play. And you think the likelihood is it would be durant end because we haven't heard anything about Kyrie. Irving you never hear anything about recovery from the injury but okay Sarah Spain. Where are you on the nets and durant coming back this season? I think it's super realistic. There's no reason to treat his return based on season rather than length of time so if he has gotten to the point in his recovery where he would otherwise be competing in practice or if it was technically the off season and he was working his way back then then they should treat it like that. I think they're very smart in saying when you have a guy like Kevin Durant and you know what his history is. You don't rush him back so if there's any question he's GonNa sit. Jackie MAC in here. What are you hearing? And what should the nets in durant be thinking going into this? Well the one thing that I've heard consistently Tony from coaches and GM's if in fact the NBA comes back. They're going to insist on a four week training camp so think about that for training camp for a guy who's coming off an injury to get to practice with his team and work his way back in. That sounds to me like a scenario. That's actually workable and actually possible. But I will tell you this sean marks one of the most careful close to the vest. Gm's I know when. I think frank will concur. He's not gonNA take one single chance if he thinks that's what it is a chance. It'd have to be certain that durant is back at bill. You just get a whole new team for the postseason run your that include how to the best players in the NBA. I was worried. Frank would be too far in the forest to see the trees. But you want me over. I here's your point will move on by yourself. It's put off for shutout. Who said it? Joe Thomas the best Cleveland Brown and he's talking about Baker Mayfield on Golick and Wingo. And Tha that Odell Beckham. He's talking about and he wants Odell Beckham on his Youtube Channel. Predicting it'd be one of his best years Sarahspain by herself Wall Brooklyn. I agree with Joe Thomas particularly with Baker because the shut up part comes as much with you. Only get to talk if you show up. And he hasn't Recently I'm more interested in LBJ. Because the way his season went last year. I think we would have heard about all these injuries. Now I'm not accusing them of not being real. I'm just curious as to why when he was struggling or wasn't performing the way we expected. We didn't hear this as the reason why until now. I'd be very interested to hear what whether that says decision or the team back you buy or sell these bold Brown proclamations well. I'm going to sell them because they're both somewhat self evident to me Odell Beckham. These injuries sounded pretty serious. So if in fact that's what was going on with him then fine comeback. Let's see what you can do and Baker Mayfield. I just feel like every time we're saying. Hey man time for you to do it so no news there by herself. These brown pronounce out. I want to get a comment from little wayne before I say anything. Here's the thing about Odell. Just go out and play. You do too much talking Jerry. Rice in talk about having a great season. You just would go out and do it. But last year this puts a lot of pressure. Baker Mayfield there. He only completed four touchdown passes to Odell. Odell is too good of a talent to only get seventy catches in a season. Jackie how did you say this is self evident? We hold this sale to be self evident. Point goes but we have more time. Sarah don't run away. Biron sell to here. We go this video of to. What do we look at this? This fifty three planning on stepping back into the question marks. Jackie Mac by yourself. Eight Tyson comeback in his mid fifties okay. I'm going to buy that video because it absolutely terrifies me. But if it was a few rounds longer I might be interested in talk about a comeback for now. Let's just say he's a really strong guy even as fifties and leave it at that broncos. Sola you by herself this idea of a comeback for Tyson buying. We love the the nineties. It's Michael Jordan. It's Mike Tyson. If you can survive one round against Tyson maybe you got a chance. But those first two minutes. Ooh Watchout Sarah Spain. I agree with Jackie durability and being able to carry that over several rounds is the question. More importantly we're all making sour dough and tick tock dancing. And he's the shape of his recent life. It's making me feel guilty to be honest with you. Maybe as you go the way Sarah Spain your answer said I agree with Jackie. You needed the port over her. You just gave it to her. I guess you have a chance now for some salary and watching showdown Frank Solman Jackie macmullan. Here's question about returning running backs a matchup. For All Time Sake Frank Gore versus marshawn Lynch already Gore signing with the jets today. He's thirty six this year. Sixteen and Lynch and the seal their talks again again because they've done this a couple times but it seems like lynching just driving car until he makes a decision. I think who got more in the tank? Jackie MEC Mon Gore or Lynch. Well I'm not sure how much either of them have burt. I saw a little bit of Lynch last year. I know is numbers. Weren't crazy but he did join the team like five minutes before the game started. So I'll take marshawn Lynch Right Guy. Still. It's Frank Gorge junior reunited with his old coach for Miami. What I love about it. All we hear is that running back. You know the short shelf life and here are these. Two old guys still going strong. God bless both of them in the tank. Lynch maybe running out of the tank because he's been driving the car doing that interview with Scott Pelley. We'll give the Frank Gore only because we wanted to see him play with his son who just enrolling college that would be amazing in the NFL. Right Guy Solo. Thirty seconds of facetime. There's another Franken town. Listen Isaiah Thomas should absolutely be on the Dream Team but now when I hear Michael Jordan and magic basically both come out and say listen. It's kind of a two month vacation. I don't know if everyone get along. I start thinking you know what I have some family members and friends could I spend a weekend with them? Yes two months traveling vacation in Europe. I kind of understand so I'm going to give magic and Michael a little bit of a break on this one. That's a long time. Two months three months traveling in Europe. How about two months in quarantine with family members that would that last story about Franken and his son now enrolling in college no. Nfl Father Son? Combo is ever played at the same time same team. We've seen it in baseball with the Griffey's although this destructive these baddies moss being picked up by Washington he's playing with Adrian Peterson. Who was a teammate of his father? Ramey decay that same scenario in Seattle this year with Greg through play. I mean this is happening in football. That is incomprehensible forty three hour. Fifty minute break backs sports.

GSMC Fantasy Football Podcast Episode 218: Best Budget QBs, Bold Predictions

"Golden state media concepts fantasy football. Podcast is your one stop shop for Fetisov. Football News and advice decided who to draft first round cowing Gaga? And how a lot of your team got you covered. Additionally Dynasty of leaks he arly. I DP DP lead even daily Fed to see football league Joanna's as we break down all the questions of fantasy football. It's the golden state media concepts fantasy football. Podcast Was going on. Gs MC FANTASY. Football podcast on GMC. Podcast network yes. We're back again Friday here even gin me either. I'm here again Friday afternoon evening morning night. I'm here for the GMC Day to day. Everyone's having a fantastic go round while you're listening to this and if not you know life will get better because tends to more than not but we have the day about here very few key points and talk about the Patriots offense here in a second but later on. We got some budget quarterback stuff so many staff with the cowboys. Are they getting through all this? Frank Gore is back again. Like you can't go away from camp stuff and do some camp stuff as well but I wanted to talk about the New England. Patriots offense heading into next season as it's starting to feel like we are getting a glimpse of what they're going to be going with for the upcoming year and along with. That comes a lot of decision making that has done for us in fantasy as you know. Last year the Patriots had not the best offense they could ever possibly had last year and due to that is because they just don't have the weapons or they didn't have the weapons back then. Still only have the weapons now. So what can you really expect from them? They went eight there. Eighteen ranked in offense last year and their two best often of weapons. One barely had a thousand yards in only six touchdowns in Julian. Edelman the next guy who had just fewer touchdowns where there too but Philip Dorsett End James White and James. White had seventy two receptions last year. So I'm pretty sure James White was the second leader in receptions and he was there running back so you can see how he works in their system he had the fourth most fantasy points on their team and James White and element of course had the second. Most Tom Brady had I. That's not even a question really. If you remove quarterback of course Julian is the first next. Is Sony Michelle? And then it's James White so we still have elements started James White. I believe and I still believe that. Actually let me double check. That white is still there before I speak out of turn here. Man James White is still there so James White still there and of course only. It's still there so the one to the aren't we? WanNa call it a one two punch between Saudi Michelle and James Wade because they definitely do different things for that offense. They don't expect even show to go out. There catching passes passes caught last year. Twelve twelve receptions ninety four yards. He's not a pass catching back but he was scouted as such coming out of college that he would be great as pass catching back and he'd be amazing in space and be able to make some things work and he'd be modern day running back like I'm Kamara. Let Chris McCaffrey. The likes as worked out like that. So far right. So who do you look into drafting? If you have to drag some patriots is still might have to Rockwood Sony Michelle James White and Angelina element because the only guys can really trust on offense. You know mom. It's got traded midway through the season. He did have fifty nine catches for five yards. When you only had two touchdowns when he did play didn't look the best maybe it was just because he wasn't acclimated properly. Maybe a full season will look better. But I wouldn't put my money where my mouth unless you're in such a deep league to wear Muhammad's the new was making or breaking roster now so I would try and look at it from a perspective of if you're in a situation where you're needing more bang for your buck you're probably GonNa go with James White over the other two and here's why I feel like James. White is the guy who between any bill? Bell TECH IS GONNA find a way to utilize him to his best abilities. He doesn't have to worry about throwing him the ball because he's a flat route guy. It's not that hard to get a volunteer. The flats a lot of guys were successful like that and play a lot of different quarterbacks who are able to basically be the third down back we the guy that comes in during the past schemes and able to make some make some noise. He's kind of like they're tied in right now when it comes to touches because they don't really have a tight in per se because Benyamin Watson's done and the one. They just drafted a rookie. After of course they're they're tied in the cost or the coast only thirteen passes. And it's not lay. Benjamin Watson was out here tilting. The Rock you only had fifteen or seventeen after the suspension. So we're really not seeing that much. That was production from that position. Anyway and you know. They drafted one in the draft this year. So we just have to see that but from pure numbers and just what we've seen and how they might use them. I would have to assume that you have to take you have to choose the two running backs before you choose Edelman. We don't know what shape element is going to come in to these two guys and James White and Sony. Michelle seem to have found the niche of what they're GONNA do now Sony. Michelle might be more disappointing and I'm sure he was very disappointing to finish owners last year because they thought that he would take a leap which in fact he did not even though he did end up with almost thousand yards and seven touchdowns. That's just not enough for I. Guess what you're probably took running back in fantasy. I would assume 'cause I'm sure he went within the first three rounds and there could netted you really really quality players when you expected production. That just didn't get there so what I'm trying to say is you can't really expect too much out of the Patriots offense. When most of it was predicated around. Tom Brady and with Tom. Not being there. They have to rebuild their whole offensive persona. Tom Covered a lot of weaknesses as much as Tom had a lot of struggles himself last year. But it's undoubtedly you can doubt the fact that he came out and he helped that team look better than what it was and. That's the greatness of Tom Brady. And we're probably going to see a lot of that this coming year that we didn't notice because Tom was so good. And that's the thing we take for granted all the Times that we have these great quarterbacks coming league they make people look so much better than what they really are and changes your whole outlook on what what is what is quality football team and I mean that to say the Patriots would be nothing without Tom. Brady when I'm saying is some of these guys like just forget how important. Sometimes the quarterback position is especially when a quarterback of time rees caliber has been on one team for so long in the League for so long. But you never seen the Patriots struggle especially at the quarterback position really ever besides a few distinct problems and one was suspension. When was the injury? Both Tom Brady so we haven't really seen them. Struggle with quarterback problem since in the bill belichick era not to say that and even when they did have quarterback problems. They still found a way to compete. Now maybe you can say oh. Well they're division has been weak for X. amount of years which is very very true and a lot of people like to go to that ideology when it comes to the Patriots in general but right now the division is very strong at least on paper on paper to division is very strong and it's only looking to get better and better in the Patriots of come into a time where if they want to compete for years to come they going to have to make some. They're putting a lot of faith. Why wouldn't say they put in a lot of faith? They're putting some faith instead of right now. Of course things work out. Just move on. But I've never seen them really struggled to find a guy. Help them keep afloat and we have to give people a Bill. Belichick the benefit of the doubt. He can keep this thing afloat. Because in all other cases he's proven that that is what he can and we'll strive to do doesn't mean that they're going to be super bowl. Contenders year in year out for the remainder of this timeframe really know bill. Belichick will return to coach right. If he's going to keep coaching but at the end of the day we do know that if he is coaching going to go out there and try to compete at the highest level. It doesn't matter who he puts out there. You have to respect it. Because somehow bill bell check knows better than we all do when it comes to this scouting and this well let me not say scouting. Let me say he knows better when he puts guys on the field? What they're capable of we made ever do. And you can put out a testament to Jacoby for said you can put out a testament to Garoppolo to an extent. He knew and we didn't and that's why he's the guy that a lot of people think is probably the best head coach of all time. All right we're GONNA take a break here and then we're GONNA get into some more quarterback stuff preferably about Cam Newton.

Maybe not the right word to use. But it's very very is very interesting. It's very sad to me. I suppose I think Cameroon deserves to be a starter in this league. Only because I feel like we haven't really seen what cam has is right now. We don't know who came is and I don't mean that as a philosophical question who is Cam Newton. Why does he wear these crazy close? Why's his hair? Why is he doing the free form thing right now? And why CAN'T PEOPLE UNDERSTAND. What free form dreads. Or I don't know but I do know that we don't know cam the player right now. We haven't seen came the player really at all in the past two years. You can't really give that. He did start a few. Maybe we haven't really seen him play in a legitimate five game stretch in a long time and it hasn't looked good. He doesn't look healthy and now of course he's a free agent still and before he was very adamant it seemed like confiding his starting job but in recent changes have occurred in the national football league as far as a quarterback situations. Now he's open to taking a backup role with the right team so with everybody adjusting to a new normal cam. Newton has started to realize that a starting job at a new home may not be in the car for him at least not immediately. So Cam Newton is still waiting for the right. Landing spot to open up and re reality has had ample time to set in and made Newton realize that it's time to find another route for employment and after Football League IRAP report Reports that Is a significant change in communication from Newton's camp and has had maintained. He wanted a legitimate chance to start wherever he signed the problem with that. There are really only one team with a series opening on their roster. And that's New England which has demonstrated both in free agency and in activity in a drive which the Patriots doom slide quarterback that it was proceeding forward with Jarrett. Stidham Brian. Hoyer so with that said we'd like to see back roles might help out a bit because then you might look at the steelers and St might be somewhere else. You need to look into because we know what Mason Rudolph can become or Mr. Doug. Hodges just don't know and then there might be a fit in before Justin Herbert went there now. Jacksonville might be a fit. Maybe Leonard Fournette getting involved but then again Leonard. Fournette was the guy who was late. Let's get Cam Newton. And now he's on trade block or they didn't pick up his option but I don't think that was the icing on the cake for not picking up his option. So this is where this is where we are right now. With Cam Newton. He is a free agent until we see otherwise. I don't know where he didn't sign up in the back of role. I don't know where he's going to go what I do know is. I like to see I. The season get started and going. It's tough man like they just released a schedule which was nice. And they've done some creative videos. That's all the panthers won and it was really really creative like the panthers Creative team very much so and they made this really interesting video using all these Internet pop culture references and it was all based in idea of staying home In this one guy staying home around and doing what he does at housing looking up getting like has like the schedule is getting put on different. Things even objects is really really creative interesting and I wish cam was still there to be a part of something like that using the brand cam. Newton in that instance would have been awesome. But of course he's not what the team anymore and that's a little bit sad as the end of an era over there Carolina in start of a new one so to speak on that here we are what is Carolina's new era. Look like it's probably an era of filled with DJ more Christian. Mccaffrey feasting around. I think those two are going to be feasting. These more is going to be underrated. Receiving Threat Infancy Harry. Here right now. These anymore is going to be a quality guy. He caught passes from Kyle. Hallin of all things and he was one of their best receivers on that team outside of Christian McCaffrey. He might be the best one and you can only get better. It's not like teddy is worse than Kyle Allen so. I think that they can really find some chemistry along with the added edition of a even more potent offense of weapons. I mean the defense offense. They feel pretty often in the offense I would assume or at least that's what it's looking like it with Matt rule in those guys over there and Carolina. They must be confident that their offense they have now is good enough to get right now. Dc Moore was the first round pick a few years ago and it only makes sense that this is going to be. This is going to be how they're GONNA move forward. They didn't make any rash move. That didn't make any reaches. They got who the guy in the draft free agency. They pay who you pay. And of course she saw a Christian. Mccaffrey got paid. Got Big time paid so. I think that's going to help. Bolster the outlook on this team. Because of course not mention. They signed a quarterback street and see. That's a big time move. What are we going to see from? Dj More. I guess the way I look at it is we have to look at the stats right and DJ more last year. Thousand YARD RECEIVER THOUSAND ONE. Hundred seventy five yards only four touchdowns though we had seven receptions the year prior he had fifty five seven hundred eighty eight and had two touchdowns so and his career. He has only had six touchdowns. But I would not say you. GotTa you gotTa believe that. Those touchdowns didn't come his way primarily because Christian McCaffrey he just. He ate them all up right. His surgery he had fifteen fifteen touchdown rushing rushing yard touchdown. He had a hundred in sixteen receptions. Two hundred eighty seven rushing attempts. Are you kidding me? That's that's enough for two people to different people that got these statistics absolutely sanity insanity. Look at this now. Look at this. He only had four receiving touchdowns with is the fact that this Guy Christian McCaffrey had who thousand two thousand total yards from. Scrimmage last year two thousand total yards. He is the best. He's the best office weapon in for doll. Not naming a quarterback. He's the best offerings weapon in fantasy not named the quarterback and it's not even close and fantasy. It's not close. It's not close close. He's competing with guys like Patrick. Mahomes and Lamar Jackson. Patrick Mahomes Bill. Lamar Jackson that is it. Everybody else is on a different tier. Michael Thomas is on a different year. He's a tier below. And then everybody else so Chris. Mccaffrey is powerful pound. The best non quarterback offensive weapon football wise. And he's one of the best weapons in football wise not named quarterback. Anyway he was in the MVP race for like a hot second. When the panthers still had a chance of doing something in the playoffs. It's unreal. Now you have somebody that actually you can depend on the throw him the football not to say that you know. Kyle is some some super scrub? It just wasn't it and now he has somebody who has talent and can really get going and he can get his other teammates involved. This Carolina is looking to have a rebound year Matt Rule. And it's GonNa be crazy the NFC south is going to be a war zone of town is going to be a warzone warzone. Okala duty is going to be a lot of bang. In and a lot of a lot of contingent matter is going to be competing out there as well as MJ was a lot of competition. Lot of compete compete compete. Go to the NFC south where the big with the bigwigs. Roll the dice. It's GONNA be crazy. Man Like offensive team is is is set to do some things that I would say so. Dj More is. I wouldn't say he's a sleeper. He's definitely somebody that if you could get as your second overall receiver. That's a good pickup. Of course Christian. Mccaffrey is going top three. It's no question about it and you may want to look at other guys on that list. Man Are the guys on that Panthers Lofton's that might start to pop off? I would start to monitor. Some things and roots are looking at what they're saying out of the camps when the season does start all right. Let's take another break and we'll get into some more fantasy news or should I the NFL news. Now it's more. Nfl News and fantasy. But you you catch my drift man. You really can't underestimate the importance of having the right creative work for your brand or your product whether it's a logo a website of book cover or an Ad Campaign. You really need a quality designed to make that big difference pop and deliver your overall engagement and success in a competitive market. Where design crowd comes in design?

Frankie Yankee Break Big Time Frank Gore the man that just never quits on turning his legs probably a no doubt hall of fame just on Longevity alone sixteen years in the NFL and he just keeps on going man. So Frank Gore last year. He was a guy that was not a big fan a- personally. I felt that he was stifling. A man that I had on my roster events don't get decided out of proportion here like Frank Gore. The runner in the person but as far as fantasy wise he was hurting me. He was hurting me bad. So Frank Gore. Last year in Buffalo five hundred ninety nine yards rushing on one hundred sixty six attempts to. Tv's had His longest run. I believe with forty one yards and he averaged three point six yards per carry in eight games. He started so he started eight games. He played all sixteen and as far as receiving he didn't do a lot of that he only was targeted. Thirteen Times. Or your targeted sixteen may thirteen catches one hundred yards and no touchdowns and that was regular season last year as you know. Delve and single terry had a spectacular rookie season despite his numbers. Kind of being weird with having to deal with the Frank Gore starting stuff going on and the till no the Rock. They really occurred. But this is all GonNa Change now for Mr Double single terrorist. Single Terry stock is up man. It is moving on up and I'm a fan of it so as moving up because Frank Gore is no longer buffalo bill well he was creation. I believe and he's signing a one year deal with the New York jets jets jet so another. Afc North or yeah AFC north team once again or I'm sorry AFC east and keeping it sometimes it switches in my head AFC east. The jets are signing veteran Frank Gore. So they're signing the future hall of fame running back to when you deal according to Asian Drew Rosenhaus and that's who was told by Ian Rapoport so apparently. Nfl Network Defensive Quarter. Greg Williams is absolutely in love that they signed him. His leadership will be huge for them in. He has tremendous respect for him as a player in competitor. He's been one of the best. He's had the game plan against so GORE IS GONNA turn thirty seven nine days and he enters sixteen season. Nfl with his fifth different organization after spending last two years a what the dolphins in with the bills and now in New York Gore will reunite with Adam gays who coached the running back in Miami between eighteen and led his team rushing attempts and yardage. This has to be we look at this for what lay beyond Bell News. Because we know who's supposed be the bell cow quote unquote in that Organization for running for running purposes. But recently they were looking to lighten his load not make everything on. Lake on bell all the time. This was a quote from Adam case a little bit over a week ago that he was this is something actively that organization is trying to do to limit his role because leaving on Bell even though he still twenty eight. He's not getting any younger and he has a lot tread on his tires. So when we saw what was the result of him having really do everything behind old line that was not the best offense was completely horrible. Offense was ranked thirty first in the League and it was just not quality and they were ranked thirty four were thirty first and scoring offense and three hundred in rushing so you can just see. This was not going to work out in without stable line and no viable backup Injuries or just going to be crazy and not to mention what went down with Sam Darnold in the mono and that just really derail their season so we don't really know they can look like now. But if Frank Gore can get eight thousand three hundred eighty rushing yards he will pass Walter Payton for second all time and he passed Barry Sanders for third all time last November whilst and likely go will pass them twenty twenty Gore will surely be the number two barring any injury to bell and he hasn't tallied that many yards in a season since two thousand six. So it's very it's it you know it will take. Maybe two three seasons worth to get to this. This mark of Second. All time rushing. You know his son is starting his college career. You know that that's insane. He's still playing football and still playing on a level. That's that's credible. He's still playing credible level granted. He had his lowest carrying yard average. This but it wasn't really anything crazy. When he was in Indianapolis he still only. You only carried the volley three or yard. Average was three point in the high threes. Same thing here clash year In Miami had a four point six yard average and but he had more yardage and he only played fourteen games back then so as we can see. He hasn't been a consistent. He hasn't had a supreme rushing yard performance. Emily basis since two thousand six his second year in the League after a rookie season of six hundred yards three touchdowns you know but he only started one game and he had three hundred touches on that point in time and he never got he got nowhere he only got near three hundred touches again. in twenty eleven with San Francisco so other than that and then another year until thirteen. He was at two seventy six so he hasn't really been near three hundred touches since then and of course he's been way way down since twenty seventeen he's been limited to about one fifty one sixty touches per per attempts per year and that seems to be worth Frank. Gordon's be now. Should you be worried that Frank Gore is on the jets roster? Maybe I mean maybe by. It's not like we need to know what are capable of when he gets going like. We need to know with Delvin single Terry because I'm single terriers rookie. And we didn't know how he was. GonNa be acclimated into offense. We know just where the where the focal point of the offense art which lady on which is their new draft receiver which is an SAM. Darnold is in there as well so we know where the focal points are. Frank Gore is not going to steal the show with frank is going to eat into some carries. Frank Gore is going to take some attempts away from Levy on Bud. But but this might mean a fresher leaving on May mean later on in Fewer ges rushing attempts. That are going to be pointless anyway. And maybe the more meaningful yardage to be made up in the passing game woods. Leon is been missed by a lot of guys in fancy around. We miss the lady on flat rows of on screens. Maybe we can see some more of those start appearing up and see him us like he used to be used in the steelers camp in Pittsburgh so I think that's what a lot of people wanna see. Labianca back to is being more of the all purpose all pro back that he was when he was literally dominating From yards scrimmage. It was like Christian. Mccaffrey before Christian. Mccaffrey McCaffrey's on a whole `nother stratosphere like I said earlier but it's the same purpose it's the same ideology. You Wanna be able to use your players to their best ability in guys that can do so many things with football in the sands he can catch. You can run. And he's very patient with the ball. But if you're just GONNA keep running up and down the middle of the field and you're not gonNA run him. You know off tackle or get them out in space. You really really limiting his ability to do what he does. Best and I don't believe that is what Adam Gates or the jets really want to do especially with a guy paid that money for that at the time we thought he'd get more and the more you look at it deal it's Been it's not as favourable as you like it to be but it's definitely more realistic now to compare what he got now. What we're seeing. Everybody else is getting in the league and just worth the the running back market is but to wrap up this segment. I would like to say that For one frank or congratulations you still in the league again and to Leon might have dropped a little bit in draft stock with it. Shouldn't really worry too much in my opinion just because Libyan probably can get the ball in other ways now more efficiently all right. We'll take another break here and coming back. We're going to be talking about how Andy Dalton is going to be the peace that a lot for the cowboys coming season out this show built around the women of 'em man from the UFC two extreme cage. Fighting we got the fights covered this. It's the golden state media concepts women's MMA podcast. The latest news of upcoming discussions of previous matches join us as we talked to in about the biggest names in women's mixed martial arts past present and future when it's the women's game you know where to listen to the golden state media concepts women's MMA podcast real. Quick before we get into Dak Prescott. The Jerry Jones stuff. I wanted to get into what I just thought in my head. Because I've been having allergy problems recently and not to say that. I've never had allergies before in my life of grown up allergies my whole time. But it's been a little bit challenging to deal with being a podcast to talking time and dealing with allergies because they're so unpredictable. Sometimes you never know when you're going to have a really bad day for just kinda bad day or anything like that. So this is a quick shout out to whoever create allergy medication. They did the job man. Let me tell you something if I can't imagine a world where. There's no allergy medication in. I think I would die. That would be that would be for me. I would be out of here real quick in a hurry without allergy medication because some days it really does suck. Man Has the worst. And if you skip a day on your allergy medication man you're messing with your messing with the dice game right there and I really the roll the dice. Too much now is they. Don't WanNa get a quick end right there because I feel that. My voice is a bit raspy today due to the high pollen. Count here in the Great Peach State of Georgia. That's where I'm at a bunch of pollen and pollen and Pine Trees Pine cones. That's what we got down here but let's get right into the actual segment years about any Dalton signing with the cowboys you know it's a believe a one year three million dollars baseline deal which can go up to seven million with incentives. If you know he gets on the field so you know what this is right. This is a play. This is the Jerry Jones. Playbook and he is he is he's using it man. It's getting out there. And he is doing what he needs to do to make sure that doc deal gets finished at a time frame that he enjoys one he wants to get the deal done to. He wants to know that if the dealer doesn't get done he has security and it's been it's probably the smartest move. He's done outside of the draft where he did the right thing and drafted Cd Lamb to tight along with Amari cooper out there so now. You don't have to worry about this because this team. The cowboys are a good team on paper. They were good team on paper last year. The underachieved by all different stretches of the word underachieved the cowboys underachieved and they had a talented roster last year now the roster is very talented granted they laws Byron Jones. But that's okay they'll make up for it and their offense make up for it for sure if they can get the ball rolling and stand. That back is a big part of their offense. I think most people understand Dakhla big part of their offense but if Dak is going to be in this contract in contract dispute or anything like that here we are. It's going to be closer. To preseason or whatever's going to happen right and it may not be signed or he may not be sure enough to camp for money reasons and Jerry Jones is not going to have that. We're in an unimpressive amount of time. Where we don't know what our season's GonNa look like and we don't know how many games are GONNA get postponed or delayed or how the play how plays even going to be like and Jerry Jones is like this is the best. Rosser we've really had in a long time since maybe twenty fourteen and you're going to tell me that I have to that this whole thing lives or dies with the fact that Dak Prescott may not want play without getting paid which I mean does Dax right and I fully support deck doing whatever it is to get his money but also support Jerry Jones being a businessman in this sort of situation and being. Hey if that's how you WANNA play it. That's what we're going to do. I'M NOT GONNA sit here in essentially cost us a beginning of season or however long if the whole out does happen when I can just go get a quarterback right now in the market that can at least hold onto the ship. That may not lose you games. He's going to do that. Jerry this the right move if you have got Cam Newton. I would've said Oh. This might be a little dangerous because I think cam more the tank right now than any dog as far as upside but at the same time. You can't be mad at this role we're not gonNA sit here and Villa old man it all going to be there guy. I no one's thinking if you bring in Cam now's the whole different or the firestorm. But you bring Andy Dalton do that were okay you understand. He's he's your bridge guy until the stack thing get settled and this insurance is insurance really if DAX does not come out and play you have a guy that you can trust behind for a little bit a guy who you know. Considering the football he may not be the best decision maker and he may play a little bit safe sometimes but you know he can at least throw the football fairly well and on his best day. He's a pretty good quarterback on the best day. He's starting quarterback. So that's what Jerry Jones did he made. He made the safe play. This is Os. This was an ozark level signing for Jerry Jones. This is this. Is Jerry once again as I said on the GMC. Fat or the football podcast. Bryce Yard Jerry has been making a lot of quality moves that I just have. I can't do. I can't say anything but good job Jerry. You're doing it you figuring out this thing here on making decisions based on team needed team potential and what you've learned. Was that a little bit over another summer ago. You had a similar situation with a running back and you had the cough up a lot of money. A lot of Mulata change the ceremony back and he came back. Sluggish and granted did not ruin. Your season did not ruin your season. That Zeke Elliott came out of his vacation or out of hold out a bit. He would not in shape right. Didn't ruin the season because you started off well anyway but by the time he worked himself into shape it was kind of the season. Just didn't work out the way you would like it to. Maybe we just were over. We were reading the cowboys too high early on like we always do when they have a little baby schedule but this has to be. This has to have been really really. Must've been a revelation for for Jerry. Jerry Ken mess around with this run because he probably doesn't know how long you've got. I would have to imagine I would have to imagine. I don't know how much longer I'm going to be able to keep doing this thing so I got to be able to do this right. So that way. He gives his team and his organization's franchise the best chance of going out there with a with a ring or getting playoff contention at least make the AFC championship game. They have been there and God knows how long so here we are once again. Jerry Jones is trying to. He's not really trying to steal the show he's not trying to say show. Who's boss. He's saying okay? If you're going to hold out come try and get your money but just know that I'm prepared for your hold out. You're not stifling. My team to the point to where it's crippling us. You're hurting us with your hold out because I can't have that again. I can't have that right now because this team is good and I believe in your deck. I believe in you but you gotta work with me and if you can't work with me in the sense of coming to Camp Plan while the negotiations happen then. I'm sorry we're going to have to start any and you can't be mad at Jerry Jones for doing something like that just like you can't be mad at that. Prescott for sitting down or potentially sitting down for contract disputes. Because he wants more money. Every quarterback has done it. Every quarterback has sat through instead. Okay I WANNA make more money from my next contract and this is not what I'm looking like. I don't want this franchise tag and I'm going to figure out a way to get the money that I deserve. And that's what they're gonNA do. That's what doc is GonNa do. That's what makes sense in the type of moment and you know what doc wants doesn't want the super long term deal. He wants a shorter deal around three years. So that way he can renegotiate for a beer contract down the line. And that's what a smart person would do game the system that has been gaming him his whole life. It's all right. Take another break coming back. It'll be talking about the best budget quarterbacks for this year's fantasy season. Are you looking to get your college football? Beck's looking to get the latest news on your favorite Schools Dean. They Diaz Mc College football. Podcast is your ticket to all things college football to join us as we talk college football from the National Championship.

Acc and everything in between download the GMC College Football podcast on Itunes stitcher soundcloud Google. Play or anywhere you find. Podcast just tied. Tsmc in the search bar. Okay so this segment is going to be a lot of fun like ideal finding out eventually once you can get in small amounts of oxygen job so of money and or rounds around the draft. Hold off wait even pick up on the waivers so this is where you need to really think about your strategies and things like that but without further ado go. So I on the list of budget quarterbacks you probably should look into is Matt Ryan. I think Matt Ryan Stack Maryland. Stack Matt Ryan. Stock might have fallen a little bit from last season. As you know the offensive weaponry on his team has not changed too much. He's lost more weapons that he's gained. Julio he still has Calvin really doesn't have Austin Hooper anymore but he does get Jane hearst far as exchanging exchanging. He loses devante Freeman. But he wasn't that big of a offense weapon for them in late anyway and then they get of course todd. Gurley in free agency after he was let go by the rams so they have some weapons. It's Kinda interesting. How as far as we know there were. Why receivers are pretty good. They have a good Tan of who he owes one of the top five receiver really since the second year in the League. And then he's been he's you know. He's been teamed up with an Alabama Lama or Alabama player himself and Calvin really who we really haven't seen have the year yet but it could be coming out. Can we come in soon? So maybe this is. The year cow release time has finally arrived as a as a playmaker wide. Receiver out there. Because I think he has a lot of potential to be and maybe playing next to Julio has been more of a a stunted his growth as of recent and rather than something that has really helped him flourish immature. But I say Matt Ryan is somebody who you know what you're GONNA get. He's equality starter quarterback. He's one of the better ones in the league but he doesn't always let it up in fantasy sometimes. It can be kind of wishy washy depending on what the schedule looking at. Who's playing against what's happening with the offensive line? And he hasn't been super hot fire since of course the super bowl run. That's that's really it? You don't know what you're going to get for Matt Ryan all the time but you do know his floor in his floor is basically what he gets in your your out and you only get him sometime like you're probably banking more. So the fact that he'll he'll get to his floor which is about eighteen twenty a game fancy points wise and you just hope that who have A better game than that. But you can always count on that twenty to come through the sort of the same thing with drew brees but drew brees has a more consistent level but in recent time drew brees gets the ball down the feel but the running game has has really taken a take New Orleans by storm as far as touchdowns giving and there wasn't he hasn't necessarily lived up the passing game in a long time. Touchdowns are concerned and big fantasy. Numbers are concerned as well so I would say I wouldn't. I'd say those two are probably budget right now. Those are not going to be hot commodity quarterbacks coming out of the gate I would say in similar fashion we have to look at People Matthew Stafford we have to look at guys like of course our favorite purple boy out there kirk cousins. So there's a thing about kirk cousins as I'M GONNA probably go off on this forbid Kirk cousins has had some of the better wide receiver tandems plus a really quality. Since he's been there he loses defined digs. Because it seems to be found digs is not a big fan of kirk cousins in the ended up drafting another wide receiver another purple at Lsu in Justin Jefferson. If they can figure something out. That's a pretty electric Combo. But you know there are a run first offense anyway so without Galvin Cook. We don't really know where they're often is going to be whether Donald can stay healthy and they can keep going and they can play action going and then you can see dealer still gets his numbers and I can only imagine that Justin Jefferson will get his numbers to their really good team really solid team. I would not be afraid of getting. You know I wouldn't be afraid of drafting kirk cousins especially for a cheaper side not looking for upside but looking for a quarterback if you really you're desperate in quarterback who's GonNa Start be decent enough to not sell you out. You're not gonna get fifteen or something like that but you'll get you eighteen. You'll get you nineteen. Get Your twenty three on quality day but if he wants to start playing quarterback for real and not mistake free football. Actually you know be a quarterback. He can get you there and I wouldn't have a problem with taking him like maybe seven dollars or eight dollars even I would. I'd get him there that type of that type of range. I get them there so now moving to tear up because I was more of a kind of the baseline drafting tear everything underneath. That is probably somebody you can pick up on waivers anyway. So let's look at it from this perspective Tear up would be the Josh Allens. The you may have some tear two guys up there so Sorry Not Tier. Two Year to Aso. Maybe Mary might be out there. But now everybody's thinking Calamari is GonNa be this new Lamar Jackson with weapons. Newly a newly added to his arsenault. So we do have to keep that in mind but guys a Baker Mayfield or probably in that next year where you're gonna be able to see where the potential is to to take a leap in their game. Right they have the roster they have the personnel but do they have the the skill to really bring it out in really flourish with these new weapons and really make big push in the quarterback and the quarterback room I would say Carson Wentz is probably in this tier as well but the thing about Carson. Wentz is the health thing right really. It's the health thing unfortunately we don't really know Carson Wentz can stay on the field for a whole season. He hasn't done it since his rookie season in the in the league. So you really don't know just what we're getting out of him physically and that's always going to be issued until we see otherwise but those guys are probably going to lay. Their rosters are talented enough to get it done. And if you WANNA take I wouldn't say it's a risk is probably more calculated than that especially with everybody else besides Carson if you're looking for a guy with more upside potential and especially someone like Josh Allen who still makes a lot of his points of running the ball It's probably a good investment to make and then there's the the rookies we have to get to the rookies real quick. I think Joe Borough is a guy of course who probably has most upside but will it's upside potential as far as being breakout guy. I don't mean as being quality starter because I think that Herbert may also have a chance of being a really good quality starter and I think that too depending on how good the offensive line really is has a chance to. And that's the same thing with Joe. Borough Joe Borough has the intangibles to really really shine in a system like Cincinnati. Where not everything is perfect but he has to really really talented. Why receivers one. Who's season veteran? Who THEY DRAFTED INTO HIGGINS? So I'd have to believe that Joe. Bro Has really really good. Shot of making a big splash. At some point in the season it may not be starting off right away but the same thing with Colin Murray married. Start off the best last season but he really really caught fire near the tail end. And that's why a lot of people are really looking at him as a guy who can who can take another step next year or this coming season. Nba able to really really show growth in really explode. Like a Lamar Jackson. Did I don't know if it'll be as big because we've never saw an explosion like Lamar before really ever in her. Life isn't fantasy wise. So THAT'S A. That's IT Justin Herbert. He might be good. Justin herber might be a guy you have to look at and be okay. If he starts day one. You may not want to start Justin Harvard Day one but if he starts you know like week four that you may want to take a flyer out there on him. Because you never really know what scheming you might get a Daniel Jones situation. Daniel is put in had himself a hell of a game and then You know the rest is history. But that's just kind of house the. Nfl works not everybody scouts the same way but take our final break and then we're a comeback is your ultimate staffer. Everything sports the Golden state media concepts sports podcasts. Should I say more from the NFL MLB THE NBA MMA? It's all in here. Golden state media concepts sports podcast. Listen up okay so I wanted to. The podcast. Aren't doing some a little bit of bold for Dick Jones bold predictions. I don't really do often because I don't like wrong. I don't really like being wrong too much but I wanNA have some fun. You know new one life newly once Noel. Figure things out and take some risk. The Diet that seems to been the the PODCAST motif reason. Roll the dice to. We're going to start rolling some day so first bold prediction. I'm going to say for the season and probably fantasy here. We go the best rookie offensively. Let's keep this in mind offensive rookie. The best offensive rookie. This season will not be a quarterback. I think that the potential of seeing CD lamb with the cowboys offerings already. As potent as it is already established knows his identity. I think this is this is this is the case. This is the one where you look at it and say instant impact immediately at the start tremendous talent offensively tremendous running. This is not. I don't think anybody makes mistakes on his wide receiver stuff when it comes to knowing when somebody's ready to come in and play like Odell fell. Odell didn't really spark off until the catch. Because live you know but I knew Odell coming out of the League. He will going to be somebody. That was really talented but no one knew of all the time would come together. Well did come together for. Oh down I think. Cd Lamb in similar respects is a guy who everybody knows his talents and we just didn't know where he was going to end up. We'd have quarterback to be there in his as to be able to guide him in a way that he will grow with and be able to really learn from so getting drafted by. The cowboys changed the whole trajectory of his first season. He could really come in. And if we can see something like you know de que metcalf coming in in catching like I don't know sixty balls in malls and he had like a thousand dollars year. He had really close had some numbers up the season. I'm sorry you didn't have a thousand yards. I'm pretty sure you had like seven seven hundred. He was very close and he really had a bigger impact later on down the season anyway and in the playoffs of course we saw his impact on first hand if CD lamb if decay can do this and he was unlimited route running now granted. They're different team for makeup. But I would believe dad with Ezekiel Elliott with Amari Cooper already. Their offense coordinator still there. I just read. Their offense line is really good. Cd's in a perfect position to have one of probably a real one of the better rookie seasons out of a often play. We've ever seen and I don't want to feel like I'm overstating it. I really do believe that. Cd has the talent to do that. And he's pro. He's one of the best wherever she was in the class arguably bats and he's in the best situation of any virus really in the class as of right now that came on the first round. So that's number one prediction number two. Okay you ready for this. I'm Kamara through. Ten Games will have eight or more touchdowns had a really really down year as far as touchdowns numbers concerned because there's so many factors that went on with saints offense. The the disc emerged the emergence of Tatum Hill. Being this real do it all guy when he really came from you know win scout team. And then he was on the kick off and then he was doing the punt. The punt defenses in blocking on punt returns and all this stuff so it was a whole different stratosphere of change when he really got more integrated he started running. More tight end stuff. Started doing more. You know wildcat offense oriented stuff because we really didn't see him throw the ball too much last year. Anyway here we are take. Some hill is a second quarterback on the roster for his depth chart. He's concerned but they still want to taste them hill. The same way they have been creatively in the past but I have to believe that they realize tatum pill is not somebody. They're going to try and run through the ground with these creative offensive sets because if they really truly believe Tastes Hill is the guy to bridge them over after the jewelries era they gotta protect them. Somehow they already made one way of protecting and that was getting James Winston to be their their backup. Backup so to speak and another thing. Is that for this album? Kamara sake we have to make sure you remember that drew brees did go down for quite significant amount of time and they Kinda Latavius Mary. Eight more during that time. The novel Kamara did because their offense had the change their scheme had change to fit teddy bridgewater. And that meant that Alvin Kamara with not really getting out in space out in traffic as much as he did. The season prior in Wendy responding came back. It was still kind of more of the same. Wasn't not much change. He wasn't getting into the end zone very much and it wasn't really the fact that he wasn't getting them to the end zone. It was that guys. Like take some pill guys like You know new emerges in our new -mergency in offense discarded to come around where we started to feed tight ends like Jerry. Cook and things like that so they started to really eat up back. Half of the season and Alvin Kamara was more of a utility but he was the guy that was not in the same sort of super attack mode down the field guy that we saw him flourish in the first two years of his career. So I'd like to see him return to that and be the guy that we know that he can be. And I'm predicting that he will because I think the saints realize that their offense desperately really needs album commodity as creative in as structurally free as possible comparative to what happened last year. And the circumstances didn't help either in that regard all right. So that's that's another one. I think the last one here. We're going to go and look at the. Afc because we do not we only have one king an NFL chiefs. They won their the kings. They are titled Defenders for the next year and of course we know the Ravens. Are there as well. Who are knocking on their door. Ever so slightly. Who's next up? Who is the very team in the? Afc I've been doing some thinking and been looking around trying to feel some things out. I think the next logical team in the AFC has to be has to be tightened. And that's just based off of their their prowess and record of last year. They didn't lose anybody. They bring back the thing that worked. The defense is still pretty good. And if they're nobody can stop Derrick Henry GonNa keep winning games and I was GONNA. It was really depending on how I felt about the steelers because I think the steelers defense is really really outstanding is the problem is they're offenses so abysmal or was so abysmal last year. That you can't even think about the steelers really competing but you got married. Steelers only missed the playoffs. By the fact that you know circumstantial. They didn't have a positive record. Isn't the negative record day? It's a miracle the record. They got last year competing considering what they had out there on the field anyway but I think the titans are probably the third best team and everything else is really wide open. All right that is going to be it for the GMC fantasy football podcast hosted on GMC podcast.

Question is an interesting one based on a couple of news items Frank Gore. Each thirty six still running still running at age thirty six six years past apparently is expiration date as all running backs hit the age of thirty their usefulness or their experience no longer required or expected to be required. Frank Gore is a New York. Jack Yes yes. The New York jets. So add to the list of Curtis Martin. John Regan's don't forget everybody before he was doing what he did for. Fighting for. All DC riggins had a Mohawk Bro. He did look it up. John Riggins pro football hall of fame running backs to have worn the jet green everybody Blair. Thomas Duncan look listen. Excuse me. Excuse me fan root for them. I'm all an unsteady okay. Year-by-year Sir Brigands Point. Five years. The Gen brother. Did you not know that? No because there's no last dance documentary about this. Yes for you to learn history. Seventy five jets. There's there's one dance was one dance. It's funny you got that photograph of me and Joe. Namath That that we snapped from. Nfl honors that my good friend Julie Frameworks for sports net. New York had autograph for my Fiftieth Birthday. It's up there in my office right. And so we're watching. Family feud a lot in my household locally. So there's all these commercials of Joe Name Coming on or something and my kids are just looking at the guy talking about insurance than they look over their shoulder and they see on the wall my keys a great quarterback. He's not an insurance salesman okay. He's a great quarterback hall of famers. Joe frigging name. I don't say the frigging but at any rate Frank Gore New York jet and I love it I think it's great signing great signing bell needs a break from run behind McCoy. Becton here comes Frank Gore h thirty six and now that he's toiling in New Jersey. I think we a call them. Francis Albert Gore. What do you say Mike Del? Tufo Francis Albert Gore one hundred percent and needs live in hoboken used to live in hoboken. It'd be called Francis Albert. I don't even know what his middle name is. I don't care hundred percent right so There's that bit of news and then the news that marshawn. Lynch said on a television show. That's how is that supposed to courtesy it. Television Show Radio Radio Television shows right said. Tv shows it on a professional who courtesies people Scott Van Pelt marshawn Lynch on on his TV show on his TV show record. Gordon no middle name. Are you serious? So her case in Gore Franklin about Frank Gore. I love it you notice. Middle Name is Albert now is Francis Albert. Tell them hey rich. Eisen says your middle name our Nobili. What MARSHAWN LYNCH? Apparently is not ready to be done with his all chicken carry-on shaking. He's still there's more chicken there's more chicken in the in the pipeline. I what I I love this too man so the League is so much better when marshawn Lynch is in it. How great how I would love to have seen the look on Fred. Goodell the producer of Sunday night. Football's faced some of the. Hey Hey hey fred Week Seventeen seahawks niners. That's GonNa be on your air. Guess WHO's coming back for that. Marshawn Lynch what. Oh yeah the League is so much better when marshawn Lynch is in it and Chris Carson and Marshawn Lynch together yet another reason why we need the NFL in the worst way we gotta get it all sixteen game seventeen weeks hopefully starting on time life does not appear to be the way that we're living at right now we're seeing it right now and reading all the headlines about it right now does not appear to be what we're we're going to get on time but that said knock. What if you were me? We're going to get a schedule we are. It's happening eight eastern time. Nfl Network the schedule release. Show twenty twenty. I will be at Home Office. Desk left position. Okay studio to right near the Joe Nemeth photos. I put behind a hundred percent. Put the Joe talking about. You can take down the art. That kids may end right and you can replace. Excuse me Chris that studio one desk right position. That's okay. I know it's difficult to keep track of all my studio positions sides of my desks. You've got so much vast room. They're working on studio three other really yes. I didn't know that my house it's a reverse shattner shot but all I know is there will be. No family feud watching my in my office on Thursday night. Because I'll be sitting there between eight and eleven eastern time. I love the schedule show. You know what? And here's what when you don't pay. I have no idea who's with me before I think it's all hands on. We'll ask Michael Irvin and twelve minutes. I bet you he'll be sitting there and his home. Of course he'll be talking about the Dallas cowboys schedule. No doubt all those games that are going to be on on national television because their the dallas cowboys and everybody wants to see Andy Dalton. Play Right Chris. Everybody wants to see how he's going to be the starter because the stock is GonNa to the contract is going to go out of trail and he's GonNa created all of the Split Screen Hashtag shows that are conversing about his Dalton. Now the starter. Because he's there and does this mean that Jerry's GonNa you know Undercut Deck Jerry's GonNa Sign Dak or Dach- GonNa sign not going to sit at home. He's not going to Kabul San Lucas. Like what like what Zeke did. I don't see that coming but dolphins an excellent signing. Is You know I said here yesterday? I think it was a grand slam home. Run one year one year. Three million up to seven in case that gets hurt or I guess there's a slim chance would be up to say that there's a slim chance of a small dumb and dumber possibility. That DAK SAYS ON NOT COMMON CHANCE. No way no it would make sense for. Dak sign the franchise tag play next year. Get his thirty. Whatever million and then when the salary cap goes up he's now looking at a forty million dollar deal nonetheless. The cowboys are going to be all over national television because of the Dallas Cowboys Oh urban I'm sure it's GonNa be part of that that show I just. I remember the first time we did. The schedule released show on NFL network. I think we did it the first year. I'm not I don't hold me to it. I think we might have done it in two thousand four. We come on the air in the middle of two thousand three. We finished the season. I don't even go to the combine. I think Paul burmeister went to the combine with Dick for meal. Might have been sitting there with folding chair couple. I I don't know honestly and then the first thing we did we might have covered free agency just like any old studio show. I don't think we did some sort of live television over. Don't believe we did that. I don't recall it but I do recall the first big event that we did was in two thousand and four non playing season as we called it because we were all about the season never ends. That was our phrase when we first went on NFL network. This season never ends and that kicked off with the Super Bowl commercial that we put together at halftime that aired at halftime or that Super Bowl. With then at the time cowboys coach. Jerry Seib Bill parcells with Jerry. Jones started the commercial with the song. Tomorrow from Annie because tomorrow the next day the day after the super bowl everyone's Owen. Oh again that's the song that we played and then all the sports stars of the day the stars the day with was warrant sat. Te'o everyone was singing tomorrow because the season never ends. We did a show about the schedule and again every year. You know who plays who and you know who plays who wear. That's determined the minute. The season is over. You know which division plays which other division and conference in which other division out of conference that's rotated that's a rotational things. You know that the only thing you don't know about your team schedule is who you play that finished in the same spot you in your conference. That's how a schedule gets made up in terms of who played. Who and who plays who wear. That's totally predetermined. You just don't know who plays who when and on what channel to use an old school phrase since there's now things that are games that will be streaming Amazon prime as a streaming game exclusively on a Saturday. We got so much crap for doing a show. That was a schedule show so much grief and garbage about US doing a show technically about paperwork. Hey we figured out the papers we slaughtered it right. Hey everybody the NFL slotted the Games we got so much crap now. Espn does it to nuts. It's great this year. It'll feel it'll it'll just again to have a feeling of like how real is this and obviously. Nfl has no control over that. It's all about the virus and how the virus handles all of us. Then how we handle it. I guess too but that'll be happening on on on Thursday night by the way we booked Friday. I guessed up at this very time. Al Michaels will be joining us. Michaels will be on Friday show and we'll have a lot of fun about schedule when it all comes out but Michael Irvin will be joining us. Chase Elliott will purdue from the last dance. I three seasons of the idea. I three championship seasons of the last dance. And he was there for all of it man. He was there for the first three championship. Seasons was also on the Spurs. The year after the last dance was over correct correct. He was on the ninety nine spurs champion so the first the first team to win it after the last dance correct. Yes was his. I guess his first team that he was on with her correct. Yes and then the very funny Thomas Lennon will be on the program and Man This guy just cracks me up everything. He does cracks me up. Reno nine one one is back and it's on Qube. Which is the new service of to watch Tv shows in other Videos that are less than ten minutes.

Yeah we were talking about Frank Franko or signing with the jets and marshawn lynch rumored to maybe be coming back to the SEAHAWKS. This is your idea. Who's more of a hall of Famer? Frank Gore marshawn Lynch at richeisenshow Frank Gore number three overall on the all time rushing list. Joe Staley who blocked for him and said he was one of the most influential players and teammates. He's ever had didn't stutter when I asked him if he was a hall of. Famer I think he's all famer. You're you're like a what do we call you a Frank Gore non truth or or what are you know it because you were there? But there's a lot of you out. There acknowledged that he's compiled that. He is going to make the hall of fame. But if it were up to me he would not get my vote and marshawn would and marshon would marshawn. Hasn't more of an impact on the history of the National Football League and Franco Frank Gore. Who ran for over one yards and scored a touchdown in the super bowl in the super dome and would have been a champion. They if if if somehow cabinet could've gotten the team in the end zone and the red zone. A lot of people are one of the doors. A penalty on Michael Crabtree. Instead perhaps marshawn Lynch one of the most iconic runs in playoff history beast mode B.'s. Quick and on both ends of two of the most historic plays in Super Bowl history. Yeah and also also on the the wrong end of the worst nonren- insuperable is involved in all kinds of greatness. Can't tell the story without him. Pro Football Hall of Famer my compadres from NFL.

He's been on since we've been on NBC ESN so to that audience that might have somehow just never watched us in our five plus years on the show or ever heard me talk about this guy. Michael Irvin was at my wedding. Because Suzy worked with him at Fox sports for so many years ran into him in New York City. Back in two thousand three asked him if he had a an electric blue Tuxedos. Why asked if he had a Tuxedo in town he said yes. Where can I show up? He showed up to the wedding wearing an electric blue Tuxedo. And then when my daughter was born now six years ago and she was born. God bless Susie. We induced to avoid the opening of the NFL season. This is a fact back in two thousand and thirteen so we had a baby naming on a Saturday right before football Sunday and the Rabbi. She says to us we have a sort of a speaker's role in my service anybody could speak to the group. Who Do you have and I said Michael Irvin and Suzy's just like a million percent with a stroke of genius the winter stroke of genius wrong so when I say I this man it's got more than just to do with the fact that I love working with him on? Nfl Network and looking at him on NFL game. They morning across the way and giving him so much grief cowboys as much as I love to. Michael Irvin how are you sir? They're barely hear you. But I did hear that law that you just talked fact my way and I appreciate it and I want to say hello to your NBC audience. Date never heard fine work. You do just stay tuned and they will be blessed Barich yes. It was a great moment rich to walk through Central Park. That's right search apart in an electric blue suit. That was soon after I retired so so through enemy territory beating up all giant all year and electric loose too. So that was. It was quite fun and it was great. All my friends were like saying me. So why was Michael Irvin in your wedding? What why would he? Why was he there? And I'm like that's my wife. That's part of the reason why I married her. Because he's just you never know you never know who susie knows. So and you're you you were. You were there for the most important day in my life so clearly. That's amazing then. You spoke with my baby naming my daughter's baby nine about the beauty of family in the importance of family which it's obviously time like now is is important messages ever it is written and let me let me share it with people because you know me being an African American and you know you made a spiritual man you Jewish guy and my last name. Urban people always call your team. Righty joked about that. But what I what? I don't people midst to cook so what I talked about in I love. I mean I and I got emotional talking about it because it's true. You know one of the things that I often talk. A- talk about wondering peppy's or fatherless-ness issues that we have in this country and I I tell people all the time. We're thirty percents Caucasian. American Fifty Percent Hispanic America's seventy three percent African American women having babies out of wedlock fathers. Not being on their post so at their talk about that at that setting a baby naming ceremony then later on in the Jewish Jewish community. You have a Missiles that these are moment that kids look back on in connect to who they are supposed to be baby naming ceremony. Everybody's there talk about what the name me ask Babe scope. I get so I won't upset 'CAUSE I don't African American people mad. I just feel that we can be more directed. We spend the same money we call it a baby shower sweet sixteen but it doesn't. How couldn't activity to the kids? Life is just a moment of spending money. What what what what. What Jewish community do we need to do in every community some things we need to steal from other people in? This is one that I hope advocate. Americans was still from the Jewish community. And believe it'll bring that number down from seventy three down down down which I think will make it all about a world. I'm sorry I know I just love your passion and your dedication but it's called sampling. It sent let. Let's not use stealing. It's okay to sample from the Jewish faith. That's fine that's no problem okay. Portions portions talking about Michael. Irvin here on the rich Eisen show. Let's get into the the cowboys of at all. The signing of Andy Dalton means what what does it mean? What do you think I'm sorry? Man Me got to save good money. I mean that that's what it mean. And they got a good backup. Because they only had cooper as the backup in and you get a veteran. Like dawn is a smart decision when you can do would for a base Ah Guarantee or three million. I note a report in up to seven million. But that's that's when you got a guarantee at three million you so many people to pay so getting into the dog as an insurance policy. That number is a good cripe but is not anything that I'm going to jump over moon about. You know what I mean. Jump Over the Moon is Oh my God we got into down but but but it is a good city is good. Situational Price For the cowboys in a backup for that but he is backup and please. Don't nobody getting it is talking about. This is the fourth that pain in any way of any kind of reflection on that. Because it's not that at all. This is that Chris Gust team but every team needs a of just thinking. So you're you're already hearing it and I saw two That that they're you know docks not going to Kabo this hour. I mean like he's we're we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA see him one way or another signing tender or long-term deal right. I hope so I thirty three. It's one thing if you're making three million dollars and you say you know what I'm going to sit out and wait on a long term deal. It's another thing when you've got that at three four million dollars staring at you you you can make cut three meals somewhere. You came make got thirty four nowhere. You see them seeing no so I I believe that whatever scenario he has planned out non will require and I don't think anyone have him leaving. Oh million dollars on the table. Thirty four million million. He was a fourth round draft. Pick who made two million dollars last year. No he'll be on that football field. It's just a matter of when they get him on the football field and how long they have them on the football field but we will get that Prescott on the football field. He's a smart man. He's not GonNa let Michael Irvin here on. The Rich Eisen show looks like Dak or Dalton. If should he get in the game? It's going to have an eighty eight to throw to Earth Walk me through lamb getting this number on your thoughts on the subject so interesting. You know 'cause you know I I like to reach out to young guys that are coming Fishermen wide receivers And and not to see lambs had issues a Jew ish but especially if they had an issue. 'cause you know in in college anything. I wanted just reach out and let them know. Hey I use me as a resource in any way. Certainly my track record Hadn't been spot list so you know when you want to. If you have some setbacks you WanNa talk to me about trying to come back from that set-back I'm here. I and I reached out to and he talk. Julian almost got I have. I did not reach out to CD. Lamb I was about to but he called me and he called me talking about the Ada you know he was saying Michael. You know talking about eighty you know I know I said I wanNA wear number ten and he said I wanna I wanNA wear number ten I. I'm seeing that out of honor for you and respect for all you've done you made eighty eight. You've earned the right to have that as your number. He says you know. I I WANNA go in car up my own. I said that's great man. I whatever makes you get up in the morning and attacked the day to copious winter. That's what you do you know for me. When Eighty eight Igor Comfort more and still drew Pearson. I told the first guy to interview when I got the Dallas. He takes all time leading receiver. I'd say yes he said. Okay I I know I say I know what better be when by the time my career why they drafted me. That's why they drafted me. So I I I did that. I made that mark every morning. I woke up rich eight thought about Drew Pearson. Every time walk in a stadium I looked at the guys in the ring of honor and said I would not disrespect you today. You know so so for him if eight eight was to pull something out of him. That's great. He said he wanted to wear the number ten. I'd say that's Great. If that's what I WANNA make my own mark that's great. Whatever pool is your hair out but I want him up this before I let them. Oh that fall I let you this? I said they made you about this whole about wearing eight eight called Jerry Jones very persuasive. About what you said. He's GonNa tear you all kinds of story but he's going to try to get you to see it his way so when I heard he was going to wear eight Aretha Act. I told them I said. Hey Hey did I tell you? He was persuasive. Or what you know so we were laughing about that. I'll let him tell everybody. Whatever he's dealing with Jerry but I love it I absolutely love it and and the way you have to be born that needs drafted or signed by the cowboys. Only cowboy gray hit as a cowboy. Play a born here. I'll bread here and I bawled here and he will meet all those criteria that was the receiver in the draft and the best pickup Dallas. Because of what he does in the positions he can play. He gets paid a slot and outside and right now. Dallas has no production from the slot on the spot on the roster right now. Because that's going to Houston Texas Rambo. Call so I mean when it all comes down to it though it does appear. That aid is now going to be a number that is given out to somebody that that I guess Jerry Jones feels special. I mean you know And you're the one You know obviously others did wear it but from Pearson to you today when Tony. O'brien added a couple years. Obviously After you but You know this is. This is what it's turned into As opposed to just being set aside you. You're fine with that right now. I'm just I I know the answer to it. I know the answer to I. I know others might not when they hear about this. Let me tell them why. Okay with me tell them why. And I don't know why I seem to be the only person to see it this way when they retire your number and they put that number in. They don't look that they don't they don't look they. Don't talk about that number onto you. Lead time and go to a tiny a for during the middle of the game as well. We Lost Mike Oregon today and showed a number. I saw four family. Let's get back to the game. Three seconds left you hanging up. But when they put it on a receivers back where at the time he makes a play on Sunday they said Oh look Michael Irvin if he has a path is oh Michael. Irvin wouldn't the drop that you see what I'm seeing. I don't wait to gotTa Get my cloud. I get my row with Averitt. Nfl Sunday that you on the field. And I want my flowers while Michael. Irvin everybody here on the rich Eisen show. I knew that question would elicit an answer. That was worth asking the question. So let's talk about does why is he not playing right now? Can you give me an update on him? I constantly hit him with direct messages. Saying come on come on the show and let's talk But he's he's elusive. What's going on with him? Can YOU UPDATE IRV? Yeah yeah and that's a good work. You elusive talk about dance. But but I don't see that blows my mind and what I believe happened and I know I know some of it And I'll share a little bit here When I got released by the cowboys it was like divorce. Then you really did want and he he just out in the pain of it solid in the paint. I know this because at the time teams call and trying to bring days in had offered this twenty five thirty million dollars. Something like that for two three for three year. Baltimore and and Cleveland was ready to not even go in and meet with some of the teams they really look for and they called me looking for him because he really was hoping the cowboys will reconsider And bring him back. I think the Oh the pain and not being a cowboy was so great. They never said his mind back. Plan on playing football for someone else and then time went on you know he signed with New Orleans hurt his Achilles and and people just I guess just turned away from it and you know you just lost those opportunities but blows my mind with with with with with the talent that is has had still had an ability to play football. Said he has not been on a football team since since he got released from the cowboys. And then we'll talk that he get back on the cowboys this year. But maybe drafting CD lamb and giving him number eighty eight Signal the end of that. So so let's let's hope and pray that that is. I hope he gets an opportunity and I hope he takes it opportunity and make up so we don't know for sure if he wants to continue playing football like we can't. He wanted to continue playing with the Dallas cowboys. I just don't know if he's ready to go play with someone else in. And that's that's that's that I don't even know how to say what that is. You know what I mean. You're young man. You still had opportunity to play football and and you just want the cowboys so much. You didn't want to go play with well and you left twenty five or thirty million dollars on the table at. That's pretty amazing. Healthy can you. Do you know that for short fees back? Yeah he he's pretty healthy pretty healthy and you know you see them. I came on doing his workouts and everything on instagram. Sometimes but yeah so. I know he's healthy. He talked about being healthy and talked about on the air around here but but just not it just blows my mind just not getting off or Tunisia. Hopefully hopefully he will take those opportunities last one for you. Michael Irvin We had Brett Farve On this show last week and he believes that Aaron Rodgers will finishes career elsewhere because the Jordan love. Drafting says so much of the writing on the wall. Would you agree with that rich man? I you know. I started to call you last week when I saw you. Stern all that show owner retired every stirring stirring up stirring it up. I ask questions. People answer them and I'll listen to with the proper questions. Michael That's the way I would determine instead of stirring it up. That's what they call third on. That was that was. It was a great question and it was so apple coke trip for talking about fishing. Exactly the person to act exactly the perfect person to ask it was Deja boom all over a key with that scenario and an absolutely man absolutely I think even more so now that bread is put it out there that that if even more apt to happen with Aaron Rodgers finishing his career elsewhere. And and honestly honestly. We're getting to the time when it's not a big deal anymore. You know the days I I think. The days of people finishing their career went team. But I did What's John Elway guys like? Those days are gone. It'd be limited those days are on. You're on. You're not going to see more of those days especially after Tom Brady. Did it. You got guys like Lebron James who makes bouncing around you know a plausible you kind of thing. So we want to start his career one team and finished his career with one teen. That's going to be the anomaly. Not the norm not finishing with the same team is going to be the north. So even if it's the norm or not or do you think this is the case Obviously rod absolute air typically. Let's let's breakdown. Rick Bear obviously in a white. You know you read report where they say it. Kinda TIRED OF BEING Roy Rogers. Stuff and all so obviously. They're in a fight. They're going to be in a fight so even when they tell Aaron Rogers they think is time for him to walk away. Why do you think he's going to agree with him? He's fighting yeah that's the whole idea of the. They're obviously in a fight so no matter how great the the work relationship is well watching a documentary where it couldn't have been better than what we're watching the bulls and they broke that up because of fighting in house fighting. You see what I'm saying so you know the one thing and and and and it's funny. The Bible says that vanity is the greatest scene and co inside of all of this is rupe sanity. Everybody wants the credit for doing what's happening on the field instead of everybody's saying well we all are doing. Everybody wants to say I'm the one that's doing. It vanity is craziness seeing and vanity will have them elsewhere. All right Michael Here's a deal. Let's put pin in that because when the last dance is over in a couple weeks. I'm going to have you back on. I WANNA get your two cents on that. 'cause I know you're tight with Mitch Richmond. You must have Jordan stories.

I'm excited that you know we're going to be back on TV and give our fans you know something to watch You know part of me. I hate that we're even in the situation that we're in but I think silver lining is that You know we're going to be able to offer something to our viewers on TV and You know at least we're know we're back race and in some capacity no doubt but if you don't mind I'd love to get into some more questions about how this is going to work because you know this could be a model potentially for other sports that certainly so many people are close in proximity to each other and so As your crew the rest of your crew and your team currently quarantined right now to make sure that everybody is Cova. Negative being tested before Darlington. Chase yeah I think that's currently all being all being worked out right now Nascar is going to have a procedure of of some sort I don't really have any details to share. Unfortunately then You know that there's GonNa be some type of some type of procedure that we all have to go to Go through to basically get approved. I'm assuming You know at the very least so I You know I look forward to you know. Just getting into the shock. I look forward to learning more about it. You know I really don't know It's all very fluid. I think things are changing daily and you know I think the bottom line is they you know as a as a sanctioning body see an opportunity for us to be able to go back racing in a manner For for all of us and I think if you know we can Procedurally cover all the you know all the corners of of everything. We need to do to make sure everybody stay safe. I think we can do it. And and and do it successfully so Do you feel safe. Does feel safe to you or not. Just I'm not just talking about covert you mentioned how You're not gonNA spend any time in the car before before racing so I mean. Do you feel safe all this chase. I do I do you know. I think that they're going about it in a in a manner that is Is Cost you know cautious enough that I feel I feel fine. you know from the from the racing side of things guy you know. Think that from from my standpoint you know. We've we've run five aces this year. Yeah yes it is going to be odd to just back in the car But you know the majority of the guys in the field have already run those five races so you do have a little time. I know it's been a couple of months but I think after you after a period of time in the race I think everybody will be back into into form and then Certainly by you know that second third race I think everybody will be be up to speed chase Elliott right here on the rich. Eisen show getting set for for two and then getting set for Charlotte after that. And what are you being told about after all that should Everything go according to plan and everybody has some safe races and and nobody tests positive and I guess you know what I mean like. So what are you being told about if you will over the steering wheel chase honestly? That's that's so far above me. I don't even bother askin You know I think I think you know. Plans and things for Darlington are changing Rapidly so I'm not even sure how it's even fair to to ask an executive know what their plan is beyond Charlotte and and so forth so You know they're in the position. They're in You know at Nascar is You know companies across you know across our sport that make those decisions and You know I'm GonNa do is I'm told me you're going to get behind a wheel and you're gonNA race you're GONNA make some left turns so in that regard as well When when you said that that things are changing for Darlington. Can you give me an example? About how things are changing where you're like. Okay I've got this plan but now you might have to have a different plan literally in just the way that you do anything protocol wise just because of safety reasons. I think that's you know that's exactly it. I think they're just trying to you. Know make sure that procedurally you know travel and and US going into the race track and how people interact with each other. I mean I think all those things are still being ironed out around and you know. I think they're right at the tail end of of having it all done You know luckily we still have a couple of weeks almost a couple of weeks so I think they've done a really good job and and getting a set plan and doing it properly and Get a distributed with with plenty of time. Yeah I think most every team was well everything was prepared to go race at Atlanta. You know we we were. We were all headed to the racetrack on Friday morning. And when when all this happened so You know cars were in a position to already go to the race track. So I think you know everybody's had plenty of time to prep for this and You know I think that I think it'll be interesting like I said. I'm I'm just looking forward to to get back to racing now. This may be a stupid question chase which is a great way to set up a question in my business Bali I mean. Have you been doing any simulating any video games? Anything just keep keep sharp in any way shape or form. Yeah then racing. Yeah been doing a lot of and over the past month month and a half. Now so yeah. There's a lot of that going on. Close is it is it. Is it feel like the real thing. It's not bad honestly it's You know they. They've done a really good job with that. It's been you know the past. Don't feel like ten years or so. They've they've advanced a lot and And that in that simulator simulation and the cars driving and things so yeah. I don't think it hurts you. You know to mess with some You know I think that you know it's obviously different in some aspects from the real thing but you know keeping sharp and and And things of that nature From a you know reflects I guess trainer. Type thing is not a Not a bad thing. So then how would you term yourself last one for you here chase by the way? I appreciate the time and again that you know there's so much obviously real life conversation involved in what we are all hoping is a live sporting event that we can enjoy Feel normal and you are safe doing it and we could keep seeing that it's repeatable but you're the one who's behind the wheel. You're the one who's got to deal with this. You're the one who's got also being a leadership role for your for your team for your crew. How do you feel about all this? Yeah you know I think it's Kind of one of those things that I really don't have a good answer report until we until we get there and Kinda give it a go I think there's just a lot of there's just a lot of unknowns you know still and and how you know how it's GonNa feel without having any people there you know. It is a sporting event and you know it. Odd to be at a sporting event without spectators. I mean that's that's part of it Always has been so just nowadays with with the way society is and things being things revolving around television and and you know these streaming apps and things we are you know capable to capable of delivering our product in different ways and at least distribute it to people to where they can see it I to be sitting there and put themselves in a in a safety risk to watch it so I think it's You know if unique but it's something that technology has provided for us to do and Like I said I'm looking forward to looking forward racing. I guess once you're in behind the wheel of the car and the protocols are set up for for the rest of your team to stay safe. I guess it's just a race right when it comes down to just with nobody There in person to walk to be put don't be a It's GonNa be a different VIBE for sure but there'll be a lot of people sitting at home watching chase. There's no question about that. You know I would have to think so. I'm excited about that partner. Okay and you excited about Todd Gurley come into play for the Falcons. I mean I. I think that he hits all your touch points Sports was right. Yeah definitely You Know Georgia Guy Coming BACK TO ATLANTA. So I think any any fan of the bulldogs are. GonNa be excited about that mood. So I'm looking forward to seeing how does I know he's you know You know had a had a tough year last year. Whatever but I think he's Plenty capable of of doing some good things. So look forward to watch him chase. Thank you for the time be safe. Stay safe stay healthy and And have a good have a good eleven days and and I hope it goes exactly the way you and the rest of your the rest of the sport wanted and and we get to. We get to see this people a little bit of a break. Yeah absolutely appreciate it. Thanks for having me you chase elliott at chase elliott on twitter at chase Elliott nine on instagram. That's GONNA be weird for a lot of people can be weird for a lot of people but if they can pull it off. Maybe this could be a template in a way. I obviously it's different when you're an individual behind a wheel but you do have a team that's around you. There's a ton of logistics that's involves people having to be in close proximity mean but if they can figure out how to do this for eleven days. Maybe it's something or other. Sports can take a look at up. So we'll purdue will join us at the top of the next hour. Nbc Sports Chicago Bulls Studio analysts also known as a three times Chicago bowl champion with Michael Jordan.

Le'Veon Bell Released! (10/14 Fantasy Football Podcast)

"Photos Bond Fantasy football today we're GONNA talk about tomorrow morning of course. But right now it's Tuesday night. Change anything for the waiver wire Levy on bell is released atom as MASER Jamie Eisenberg Jeff this is not going to be good news for some back. I'm so nervous. I'm afraid that Latvian. Belle's comment and wreck backfield Kansas? City, makes some sense dad levy on bell. Chicago make some sense that Levian Bell I could see a situation where maybe even Cleveland looking to replace Nick Job at Levian Bell Man there's GonNa be a backfield that gets destroyed by this it's going to be very very frustrating. Are you going to drop? Levy On, bell tonight for you know Chase Klay Pool or or something like that. Well Adam, you were speaking to somebody who only has levy on belt in one league and it was because he was dropped and I had I are spot to stash them on. It's a ten team league with deep roster so I will not be dropping him for two reasons one. Waivers don't run for Wednesday. Okay to. I'd like to see where he ends up I. Mean I don't know why anybody would be dropping him at this point because maybe he has a improvements leaving Adam Gates look what happens every play relieved that him gaze that's right. Get. Better Yeah. So who's going to get better now in that Backfield, Frank Gore going to get all the work what do you think? I mean frank makes the most sense because of what he's been doing in the Levian Bell absence but. This is the time if you're just start to see what you have and will Michael Ryan may not be a starting running back in the NFL you may not be a great fantasy option, the jets, the jets, but I'm not going to go pick up frank for you know I just don't see a lot of upside with him and so I I'd rather just kind of take the chance on what's No Michael might be now if you need somebody to get you five or six points and nine pr and maybe six or seven points and then you go get your Michael Preston anything. Then I'd spend a one dollar bid on him tonight just to see what happens. Well, man, this just kills Joe flacco Value Jamie. This is devastating for my fantasy teams. Really does. Like if you're the jets at this point, you you bring Sam Darnold back anytime. Soon. Lady. He wants to play like my God. This is just a disaster of franchise. All right. You know what? Honestly? Like we don't usually do three minute podcast, but I don't know that there's much else to say Michael P Ryan is the guy that Jamie is going to be going after I'm sure you would still pick up like jd mckissick over him, right? Oh. Yeah. I mean this is one of those. You know I guess you got to determine like if I'm by still holding Carlos Hyde if I'm still holding Jordan Howard if I'm still holding. You know trae. Kwan. Smith, if I'm still holding on guys that had no value to me, I'm going to drop those guys for. For somebody like Michael P. Ryan like we play ninety, twenty, seven roster spots. You know you you pick up you know if you're in a fourteen league and you have a dead roster spot, you pick up with Michael. It even if he's the guy for the jets. Wasn't going, GonNa? Be. A right yeah. So it's not a good situation. It's the right now the lowest scoring team in the NFL. I. Believe. So they're not gonNA get any better without living on I suppose. But hopefully, Levy on bell we'll get better without the New York jets we will find out where. You can go right on your mind for him or for a starting fantasy running back I for him. For Him. Man the giants like I don't think there's any chance but that's the other scenario that's like Oh God. They're bad. Offensive Line's thinks they have other players their side say the giants. That's the first team that came provide Ravens Ravens would be really. Terrible Mailers thing the Bengals bagels are interesting and then for like someone else I think that chiefs chiefs, it really bothered me I do think Clyde ever dealers a workhorse right now if they sign levy on bell, I, think it would be kind of like Damian Williams after the Lucia McCoy less lesser extent, he wouldn't get the same work as but it would be enough to be annoying. What do you think? Yeah, I mean. This is the thing that's going to be frustrating. Well, first off look if he goes somewhere Don't automatically downgraded starter so he goes to Kansas City. Don't Ob- sons think quite things don't all decide if he goes to Chicago thank Dave Montgomery stinks. I'm trying to think it's got to be a situation that he goes to like Seattle. Seattle makes sense because Chris Carson. has already been banged up a little bit You know he came into the season with A. Concussion situation. I'm sorry with the hip situation and then he got his knee twisted so. They reside pending who knows when he's coming back. The rest of the backup stinks no Carlos Hyde is is is not a difference maker Levy on might be. So that's one I also think Arizona to you know they they were aggressive with their back the last year. Remember they bring in Kenyan Drake when they still had David John was coming back from his injury and. Chase Edmunds is is serviceable. But they don't have a third guy. Yeah well, we'll find out hopefully hopefully soon hopefully doesn't take. A place to sit in suspense, and we'll keep you updated on the fantasy football today podcast. Thanks a lot for listening everybody anatomies for Jimmy. Eisenberg with his bonus Bob called young.

2x Super Bowl Champion, 5x Pro Bowler, Steelers Legend James Harrison

"Going deep podcast got super bowl. Champion with flo going on everybody. I am Stephen Che. Very fun episode this week. We've got two thousand eight defensive player of the year my James Harrison deebo Willy's former teammate. With the steelers a steelers great very very fun interview some way to do more to happy. Happy Belated Birthday James Harrison. His birthday was on US star. Wars they may may the fourth be with you but very very fun episode there we Gotta. Start with a couple events that happened this week in the NFL. Some very interesting move so the Dallas Cowboys signed Andy Dalton to a one year deal. Now they've got DAK Prescott waiting in the wings they've franchise him the they have been trying to work out a long term deal but willie is there any additional pressure on back now that the cowboys have signed at least competent backup. Who could you know? Certainly take the reins if needed while they added key word reason why signed because he's competent. Right you talk about a guy who's played enough football blitz bend to the playoffs Not succeeded but at least been there And at this point for whatever reason that attacked those rogue you have a solid number two Taking over the reins and keep pushing this team. You know Jerry wants to win. And he's doing he's he's lost Travis Federick Taco has gone he. He's trying to make sure as these holes keep popping up on a ship. He's plug in a mill and one thing he has to do is get a solid extremely fortunate to be in. Pittsburgh when been went through his woes as far as from injury standpoint of having guy by the man bomber left which end Charlie batch who were very competent. Both guys who you know from outside and we'll get caused to be started on other teams. But because you know new type team we had organization which they were playing with. It was important for them to. Hey you know we we know I rose will be number two number. Three number one will be running a number. Two quarterback is extremely. I WANNA say is probably one of the most lease value but yet most important position on a football team because not only is he. Your eyes and ears for the quarterback. That's he's the guy that the momentum's hot with a team I say number one against Dane happens all over the NFL. He's guy that says we're let's keep winning but if you don't have that guy that has confidence that has the poise that has experienced. You have to. That's such team back in India. Really trying to get this guy caught up because he doesn't have the experience in two. He has earned the the respect from a team. That's a whole nother. Different sense of you know that's hold another way of going about it. So antidotes Walkerton locker room being respected. Because they know who he is that he's capable of whatever happens that he can stop it and get it done and you know. I don't know if you register this team. But if for him to get the four million guaranteed cowboys have to go to the Super Bowl. So you know this guy is gonNA walk into the locker all in you know. He won't be looking. He won't be looking to go elsewhere. He will be looking at helped the cowboys win this year. Yeah I think it's an interesting move. I don't think that antidote necessarily presents a big threat to Dak Prescott but it is like A. Hey let's get in line. We do have alternatives. Here Beck Prescott. Is going to be very expensive quarterback. I mean we're talking mid thirties to forty million dollars per year. I mean they signed Andy Dalton to a three million dollar deal that hasn't sent those can get seven million dollars. I mean any doll is not a guy that you're going to feel great about going to going to winning the bowl with but when you're talking about value is he you know twenty percent as good as deck. Prescott absolutely grasso. It'll be interesting to see kind of how this plays out. I do really like the move backup. Quarterbacks as you as you said are a very important position I mean we just saw the Philadelphia. Eagles spend a second round. Pick kind of backup quarterback. Yeah a guy who has no chance of starting and his role from the beginning is a backup quarterback so well I mean I mean he'll start if Carson Wentz gets hurts for sure right A. Carson. Deal with concussion issues. He's been banged up ever since he's been in. The Eagles omit anything about is he has time to really digest because he played in Texas right. So He's it's comfort is is easier become pool there so he's really going to be on him and I could see him really digging its claws in to wanting to remain there because listen dachshund have been injured right DAX always. He's pretty solid. Never been injured but just in case Beckenham Blood Soda Brady Situation Happens Way. You know blood so guy. Her head comes Brady. I'm not calling Andy Dalton Brady by chances by no chance but I've been a guy thirty two years old. Do Two hundred and four touchdowns he's quarterback that can sometimes get that team that spark they need because he's new he's familiar. He's confident his swag. Everybody know what that can do but he just hasn't jumped over home if I if any could do that. That's headline news man as big time right if that holds out or it gets hurt forever isn't misses time. They're not going to miss a beat with ended up and they're not going to modify their playbook at all. Andy Dalton absolutely can get the job. Done Kenny win a super bowl. I I tend to think not he if you look around the league. All the backups. He's gotTa be the best backup in the League facts. Well this still came new nother. We'll see where he lands Let's talk about one more thing. So the Frank Gore just signed with your New York jets thirty seven year old Frank Gore also. There are reports that thirty four year old. Marshawn Lynch is contemplating a comeback with the Seahawks full-time recall. He signed a week. Seventeen last year and played in the playoffs. So Willie I mean as a guy who played in the League if you see. I mean typically running backs. They're the wheels fall off about thirty years. Old Twenty nine thirty dollars off Demarco Murray. Who is probably the best case of that? After leading the League in rushing just kind of fell off a cliff. What does this do? If you're a player in the jets or a player on the seahawks and you see a guy essentially I want to say a Walker wheelchair but a much older guy. Come in to take carrots off from Frank. Gore makes a Lotta Sense. He played underneath Adam. Gates down to Miami Together Frank is probably probably one of the most undervalued under estimated backs that ever played a position heard. He's always done the right. Things always done it the right way. He's always been a hard nose back. What happens now with a guy like that particularly late on the jets? You understand for the jets standpoint. They have a locker room. That's trying to figure out its identity right and when you try to figure out your identity standpoint you're you're in the mix of our. Who Do we call to when things go wrong when go bed? Who Do we lean on to? You know trying to get the guys moving in the right direction. I was one of those guys. Nick Mangold Guys David Harris so we had a couple of guys who can really shift a culture shift the temperature of the locker room. And what happens when when you're one of those guys that the coach Front Office people lean on your trying to pull the team out of a A rough stretch losing streak or if you're on a winning streak trying to keep the focus on continue to win being consistent. Frank Frank Gore has played enough football. It has that ability to do both Jamal Adams. A lot from he wants a big deal right. He may go south on jets if he doesn't get a big deal and all it is always talks about him. Being trader not trading markets may have been injured. So what happened Marcus? May He may be gone. Maybe ship at him out. You got the big left tackle that drafted. He's a big guy who can have a midst presence on organization if he's raised right. What was one way to raise it? A big tackle like that. I haven't a veteran savvy running back. Who knows how to talk to guys who by all watch? Frank bores resume. He seemed to old school to the new school. So he's able to relate. He's played in different. He's played different on different teams and played for different organizations. So he's seen a lot of football. There's extreme value to that to a team that really trying to get on the right path so I like it. He still running hard. He things you need him to do his position. I think he's a great pickup by a Joe. Douglas in it I think Jodi probably after probably he's off to offer it start. I think that the I love Frank Gore pickup for the jets so a big reason as you alluded to was that he played for Adam gifts in Miami. Actually I'm not a huge numbers cabinet. Do think they can help you know. He's obviously known for his career in San Francisco. He was there for ten years. He hasn't averaged four yards a carry or more since he left San Francisco except one year and that was in Miami. So if you look at it's bells to their right and you know it's not going to be the starbucks but I think you know he hasn't been the starter anywhere. He's gone since Darren Cisco. But he's a little bit in Indy. But he's going to be like a good change of pace back good guy. Who can you know in in the in the running back room? He's GonNa you know show guys blitz. Not that lady on bell needs to help with that But he's going to be a good guy you can rely on gates obviously has a whipped but just looking at his numbers twenty fifteen twenty sixteen twenty seventeen in indy average between three point seven three point nine years a carry so huge spike to four point six hundred carry with Miami at age thirty five last year down three point six which was a huge drafts. So you're hoping if you're Frank Gore you can kind of get back to that four plus yards per tearing ineffective contributor on team that I wouldn't expect to have him the ball too much but Certainly will be a player that can get some numbers marshawn. Sorry good now saying the to your point he for Adam Gates. He's meet a bridge into the locker room for office a line. That's really trying to find their identity as well on top of being inefficient office ally. One thing that helps you run back knows what to do and how to go about it. That's Frank Gore so Once again great big up by Joe Douglas. Yeah as far as the marshawn Lynch pick up. I'm a little bit less high on that. He hasn't had a good season since twenty fourteen. I mean he Two thousand fourteen the rebel and Twenty fifteen. He was injured only played seven games at four hundred seventeen yards that he was retired. Came at retirements play for for two years and then played one game at one regular season game last year in the playoffs scored four last his yards per carry is mall so he's not a guy that I'm super excited but I mean as a seat if I were a seahawks fan motors always going to be a spin off the beast quake skittles super bowl run. But he's not like a productive player at this point in his career definitely a cool nostalgia feel about him but he's not a guy would be a restricted. It's getting tears but when you talk about marshawn. Lynch is his presence makes team and it's swagger added swagger confidence you know he's GonNa have one or two piece mold. Light plays a game a he may not be the future back but the fact when he stepped sorta field he's a threat and people still respect his ability and what he can do the football for Seattle seahawks. That's enough you know and so i. I don't minded marshawn product. Realizes that he'd probably can't play for anybody else they don't WanNA stand him in goes about his business only place that he could probably play for for long he decides to play for is Seattle seahawks and so in listen. They're going to be in the playoffs. So it's a win win. Why NOT OUR SEAN LYNCH? Also enacting I don't know if you watch westworld but he watched the jerk. I would say it's a good show. It's not all right. Let's get into our interview with two thousand eight defensive player of the year James Harrison. This interviews is brought to you by death.

Graham podcast we've got two thousand eight defensive player of the year five time Pro Bowler Super Bowl champion to champion James Harrison. Welcome to the program James. How you doing Yoga Anthony Heard the the excite me go down in your voice ten notches when we started getting you and former teammates before before we got on air on this podcast so talk about your Akron kid one of fourteen kids and you want to be a veterinarian day. I wanted to be that was. That was my. That was a recent quote density still to do that is true not anymore. I want to get into acting. I'm actually into it but we'll get into that too. So so james you'd been with Pittsburgh since two thousand two Willie got there. No six you guys. Were coming off the Super Bowl. No five but what were your first impressions of a Young? Willie Cologne at a hopscotch. Know so crazy. Is that It was an incident. Where Where the offers a defense was fighting right in the RC. Hit not our own. Rc hit but willie goes and grabs grabs. He's not here. I'm like all right. This is about to be William bag down. But he ain't giving thing he wanted to give you do I Gore. Don't go back down. I think Joey fuck important. I have no money I do fuck around fucking money on new and I fight even talking about was the spring training. He You GotTa Understand Stephen. Like Deebo Battalion. And he's honesty's icon of figuring Pittsburgh he forever go down in the books but that. Oh five defenseman They were such. I can't It's I think it's hard. It's hard because being from the outside stepping into I tried to tell depot. I tell them I had had champagne issues as a rookie record. You guys had just wanted. It was buses last game ended. That defense was so fucking iconic because Peasley parts you got foot you just a special teams but but but you you play and use a gangbusters and walking into that. Dita's I remember with my one of my first time around. You guys just being like deebo turnoff. Just fucking somebody. Let Their rottweiler loose. You got peasy who's rocked up shit man to blame that on me Clark. Hangs these guys represented like Maltese? Mo- Masculinity I'M GONNA kick your ass the steelers so to see them as a whole as a group and not one of them break as much as everybody is and rightfully. So I mean Larry footed kick your ass if you had to too goddamn towns to Ike Taylor for damn sure it was. It was a bunch of man who believed in each other who just want a super bowl and you could tell the exude confidence at all. I mean if they were playing cards to on the field to in the lunchroom it was just like wait. A Badass motherfuckers was walking around. We say so and it was. I mean it was it was. I wish more people could have experienced it. They probably right to when I was fortunate but these guys met. I don't think you guys. They fought each other. They was selfless and it was competitive. All you guys do not GonNa get any more do is is guys that are actually out there playing for each other and not playing for likes in popularity and how many followers on the Gid and all that it was like dude like I literally I literally spent more time with the cats play ball with off the field than I did with my actual family like run especially back then like it was when after as he left deal in. It was just me. Proc- footnote it was due. Two thousand was like twelve. It was days dude. I didn't even I. Didn't we get to Saturday morning when Thursday? I don't want to go too far because I want you to talk about that. Oh five season you gotta go to say you didn't Start an defense but you ensure played and you made a big impact on special teams. What made that year special outside of Jerome? Bettis being a sixty going. This bill our went. What was the extra the extra thing that I think that really pressed for everybody is Bussey? Wanted to retired previous year. Really in in in guys like do this. You know you're talking like we'll we'll get terrorist will be in. Detroit know be everything is GonNa be the stories the fairy tales about the fall in place. We will make it fall into place and I think that's really Push the whole team. You know to have that type of mentality. Put the effort into what it was. We were trying to get a copy of plus your plan what he bent office. Bur what was the confidence with him as far as him doing his job. I know yet to be honest with you man. We weren't we weren't looking for Ben to really come out in and win a game to go out there and and you know drop back forty fifty times man. We need to go out there and ball off get us. Let's get three or four yards a cloud of dust and when they go ahead and they wanna do something goofy in in crowd box or whatever. Let him do it. He do and a lot of the. Times back then. A Lotta the band's biggest plays were scrambling Improv. We yeah we had. I think he averaged. Maybe twenty two twenty three passes a game his first three or four years. You know when we had office that you know it was ground and pound and we get a by three. That's like fourteen. You know what I'm saying we go. We go go ahead and we go brown and founding and run. I thought out in. If you get a chance to go for the defense back out there and say you know what the So I heard something about you very early in your career. You get frustrated a lot. If you didn't know the plane you'd ask start rookie on a play and ask the coach. Take you out my rookie year. So we get in there and like the they did none of the like so in Whiz offense like they would motion light crazy. Yeah so we get out there and practice and we're just going against like what we're looking at on the paper just regular they go out there and with the Dick Lebeau defense. They don't they don't what we call. Dung was to dominate defense. Now to to wear it is very very simple. A Real Dick Lebeau. Fires around defense has so many moving parts that if one person goes wrong they can strike the ban on just from one person reading the wrong thing. Spitting the wrong way. Whatever may be. So that's why when he first came in like big boat. You didn't have rookie. Starting in defense is too hard to learn correct and I think the only person that we had way back into. Gene when I was there was Kendra bell he started as a rookie but what they did is they made a lot of gap costs a lot of. Matcah so as Mac nights or whatever it may be explained though is a is a MAC decent. So what they're doing is they're saying Mac whatever the coverages and they're given a gun cost sort costs done call basically is telling them Mac exactly where to go so he has no. He got thinking about nothing. He hit baby C D. On a right or left and everybody else. Oh sit where he would cover and just let him run. Its kindle run-through Gruntal lyman in literally lift him? We're one hand like it was amazing to be able to start defense as a rookie. It was literally in possible so with Dick Defense while it's not same. Now it's Mike Status is Is done down but man that that defense when play exactly it's nothing. It's nothing like it in. That comes with the understanding the time that you need to be to build you know communications like you got troy. You know at times. He's sitting on your and get Troy Troy Won. I'm telling Honest Guy Truth few days where you see troy bliss and Guy Jumping grabbing. The quarterback troy got beat her. We'll do that. Mean that means that got third now they got D two-thirds like you cover for each other like literally. It was plays where we would we would do like a corner blit so if it was a certain formation we do corner late so I suppose come off than you blitz. I'll cover with it. You know. I'm I'm a dude at but it's Petillo points of communication trust and selflessness right. That's that's that's what is tough. I think it's if you look at. I don't want to rock set with the differences today. Pittsburgh what are the guys who I play with yourself? You guys move together like a string like one part moved other and it showed and a lot of time for people look at the big plays that have. That doesn't happen to other people doing exact thing they're all to do. You know that's the thing like you gotTa have ten. It Ain't you can't have eleven you gotTa have eleven people in a at the end of the day. If we're doing that Max blitz in that one guy don't do his job to get dude that's supposed to be. Free Free Eco. Hold onto the ball now the corner that was sitting up here like you know what His I cut them jumping now he jumped at. I do got time to readjust. China hold onto the get rid of her so James to ask. We talked to Ryan Clark many months ago right before the season started about that. Oh five team. And they're partying habits. He said that you guys would go to places as far as Vegas during the week. I'll you're not part of the part of this role angle lie. I'm like I brought him up. I like three or four years from two thousand to probably about two thousand in fix may wasn't a night that I wasn't out. I'm telling you it was like real talk in. The thing is like we was burned it from both ends the show we soar with the eagles. We go we`ll. We'll go out with the aisles. I but we go the eagles I in the mornings many nights where I've left the after our at five thirty win a breakfast and went straight in the workout in a people are yet dues in Jim getting it in three nearby joy. Puerto Davis. It's not gonNA skip skipping something you're not. GonNa do not get to where you're not going to let you know not let the night light mess. We're trying to do here and you can do both. You've got to give up the nightlife and that's an Goddamn medieval. Thank you for saying out. Because that's the coach House Burr. Birth into here so many times I would be out partying with other by. Just be in the same club having a good time and literally terrified. It wasn't that I was thinking about missing practice. I was terrified to MS practice. And I remember sleeping in the parking lot and a security built fargo a showtime the doors. Open running in shower and steam. Going in and be on for meetings. It's UN- bothers. It bothers me that these guys have excused. I well may night got away from me. The night can never get away from it. Just it just doesn't happen. And what are was up here. He was he was talking about one of the big things that happened that Oh five year which is as far as even had we had. Id on here when especially it can speak first hand. Because he was a part of that defense is that you. Is You guys party together? But it also loosened you guys up allowed you guys to play free because realize one everybody's accountable like I talk about on the flipside. I I was dimity pack while Dogs Coup Football First Party second but we need to do both. It can't just be all football and again. Just be all party like party year. Was Football Party football party but the party and never overseas the football. Yeah yeah it never did and like you said that was something that like? I said. That's what I stepped into a weekend but we go. We go get it in like we go. We go we go. We'll get it in here. We go get it in there but if at any point in time nightlife messing up. What we're doing here you got to cut it. It got to go. It's it's not happening and to be honest with you all the way up until about like I said about two thousand two thousand five thousand six two thousand six. I stopped. I stopped drinking during the week in everybody. Like come on man. Da and I'm like dude I'm like I can't I can't do this. I'm like I'm like I don't want to do this in us. Came to a realization. I was I was it was two thousand. Two thousand six. Just want us to go in our gear. Yeah I I say check. It was but in so minister. And He's checks two hundred twenty three thousand dollars. You may my whole pay. I said I am doing something right. I said I gotta get to wear yet. I'm like you know what I need my body to do what it is doing. So that's why I stopped drinking in a a season. I wasn't eating right man but I ended up meeting. Lisa Next year leases acupuncture. She's she's well known throughout the League so I started using Lisa in two thousand seven and she was like you eat like shit. I don't know how you do. What what you're doing like like sitting on how you do it. I'm like well what can you do? You need like this. Do this do that. So she basically became nutritionists. You know what I'm saying on everything was supposed to eat. So when the two thousand seven season K. in I'll stop drinking in season altogether. I didn't even do it after the games anymore. And obviously that was the year that I ended up Making clarity year yet taken off all that. So I'm like this is. This is where it's at in. You know all the way from that six point today leading up to that era by dog come on like dude. I need my body like right now. I'm like young. Yeah I could burn both ends right now. I said but for guide is trying to play. I'm trying you know I was at the time I was trying to play in the east until I was thirty. Thought that was all right. Rhino Damn their playoffs forty. But I'm like I'm like I'm trying to play this game as long as I can't. I'm like I've got a short window right here man to make a whole lot of money in all. I gotTa do a sacrifice I said if I got a sacrifice for ten fifteen years whatever it may be the money could make that time can do whatever I want to do. I could generate generation of wealth for me my kids. You know my family. Whatever so like that's when I was like you know what I'm I'm done I started. I started doing all alternative the Albert Chambers stuff and everything else so I gotta ask about one question about like acupuncturist. I read that. And this was a pretty Circulated quote whenever it happened that in a given year you would spend between four and six hundred thousand dollars a year on massages and we get to of more on hours of Messiah or sorry bodywork. Yeah so what Please clarify what that is and then a waste like when that will not laws is going up like no no no. So what happens is on their their body were. I'm throwing it into body maintenance so everything so I'm talking about my trainer. I'm talking about my chiropractors Mama. Sewers while Masseuse acupunctures You Know Mama. Person Does driving in my person that does regular like I have a person actually just must at the time just massage my lower body for two and a half hours like from my waist down to Michael Murphy does because that's what they were good at in when you have went through as many body workers as I have been you come to realize like the first person that you've ever had there were probably garbage like to be honest with you and then you want a forty or fifty sixty dollars massage in. That's what you get. You get a forty or fifty dollar massage. Because that person doesn't have the skills that it takes to be able to demand more and I'm not saying you should pay more massages because they charge more but I've come to find out when it costs more as a reason that it costs more so from auto body works that I had. I ended up getting different person. You know this year I get person net year in like I say I could probably went through probably thirty to forty. Different people saucers in our chat four because he was only four. That was good enough to maintain. I WANNA I WANNA. I want to go back to the field man because I think it's so you talk about your coming of age in two thousand seventeen you said. He wasn't on dropping the nightlife from time for me to get it. I gotta go get it starts with me As we mentioned Joey Porter that Tom want you to talk about that. Long back Romanoff's so we're going to get into the championship. Your your magical your our magical year but talk about that linebacker room. Because it's it's it's you joey. Porter Potsy Foot Archaic. Will you hold game? I got there was Jason giving them to so guild too but I i WanNa talk the reason I want to focus on you. Because peasy leaves right and he leaves or they That was that was Mike when he right right so when my time comes because I know you really should be seeing might Tommy gets their peasy leaves what did I. What did that signify for you? Was it you know what this is? This another part where I had another chip on my shoulder to be honest with you in in every time dude it was. It was more and more like so and people don't know why I love Dick Lebeau. You know just just talking about adding makes me motion run. And that's that's because he really had left we you know he really cared about you as a person you know what? I'm saying and he would back you no matter what rather you were there. Not and that's that's another reason why I really trust in love this man because I know what he did when I wasn't there when I wasn't near to to be able to have my back. He did so Getting back to the the the room so to speak you had like you said Was Wound think whiteboards? Let's just go back to two thousand seven. Let me of hold on. Let me tell you about the question. 'cause I don't want I don't want you to dismiss it. Get a room. I want you to hit on that. The characters that ROAM MPG leaves. What does that mean for James Arizona for me thought that man I'm stepping in? I thought you know they had the the confidence in me to want to be able to go out there and do it. So I'm like cool. The draft come and they drive wanted to outside linebacker right. Yes Lawrence. Tim is one. They draft Lemar. Wooley to yes all of a sudden I'm in training OTA's and I'm splitting time with lors terms. Okay so right then and there chip on my shoulder so heavy you couldn't you couldn't stand wall and so we we know we're going. We're going through it back and forth going through practice everything Lawrence hurts his growing and he has to like sit out for like three or four weeks of a of a our actual training camp. Then getting rub so I start taking off. You know they see in it a recognized in so when Norris comes back they actually move into inside so for from day one as soon as he went one two on knew. This wasn't for me like he ain't for me. He tried to come in here and fill the heir apparent because he don't think I'll be able to hold up to a peasy was correct. That's the only way I wanted to outsides. So from that point right there like it was immediate like okay. This is a business trip as business in everything. I do anybody any time they brought somebody in. It was like okay. That's why do you think was del. Doubt came honestly have no clue. Where were you now man? Oh dicky handle down me but at the end of the day like you know When you when you coordinator you don't you don't have those powers you know. That's up to the to Edna Jim and say soon as you did that like you don't go. You don't go one or two if if you supposed to be the heir apparent at one before what. I'm seeing twenty twenty six twenty whatever it is. That's not that's not that's not the route that's like San okay. We got We got our two tackles there here and now we're going to go one or two I could. I could understood one because at the time they were thinking. We're trying to work Clark on trying to get his contract and they weren't come to the right they WANNA come. They won't be able to come to terms like okay but when they went one and two so that got what it was and what ended up happening as they moved of Tennessee inside and then I think later the next. We'll do this Lamar on outside chewed and Lt Right. And then they got their car ended up going and sharing time for a second. We're would then would ended up in same thing tim today inside. They got foot. Think I went to Detroit. Yeah he's an excellent linebackers coach for the Becca. Nears Foot Foot for good So let's talk about the year. Two Thousand Eight obviously defensive player of the year. You guys win the Super Bowl and you got you have been voted the number seven. Play all time in. Nfl history with one hundred yard. Return talk about that year. First of all and kind of You know obviously you got your body work and everything straightened out your diet straightened out. Everything fully focused on football. You're thirty years old at this time. What was specifically about that year? That let you excel so much You know what man to be honest with you. It was just a greater understanding of the defense You know so when you say getting in there is hard to learn so literally Ma. You know first year of actually starting. I was really starting to try to figure out. Like what is my. What is what is my next to me. What is my corner during next to me so that I can better help me and help him. Which will help defense and really man I think aimed down to like. I said a group of guys that truly cared about each other in wanted to go out there and get the job done excel. Get that Lombardi. You know like I could. I could take may times where you know. They they were trying to talk about Dick Lebeau defense. Because we've been messed something up you know what I'm saying. That's the only time something goes back in time where we'd have to be like. Yo Get I. What's going on reported talking bad about? Dick like we gotta grab because he bought the take off under literature. And that's something real talk. That's something we was like go. Is Dick Lebeau stay GNAWING Shit wrong defenseman? We messed up wrong with this defense. It's what's crazy about that in particular is talk about the conference. You talk about wanting to know five here. We are in a dogfight with the steelers. Have the number one defense in Baltimore has a number two devers that talk about that rivalry. 'cause I I've I've talked about. You've talked about it immensely in a comes to a point where that's truly night. Then we talk about like I won't say is hey but it's it's definitely like animosity jealousy from different sizes for different people for different things You know but tell them. Can you talk about what I know? You were you there when We a the bus. Ray Lewis. Would you live for that one right there? But yeah people details about that stored though that was when pc was still yes and bring this up because that that now what stories about tells. Steven Shay from there is a big nights part of the reason. Not It's not all of it but it just adds to the threat of why the Baltimore Pittsburgh robberies so fiqh go ahead are so I don't I don't know the whole story leading up to it but basically I'm going to get to to the main. Just where he wants to me to say so so plex in another. Db They got into a during the game so they just see me in a tunnel on the way out we all go through the same we all to be signing tunnel right so as you get to where everybody will be in the same area. They John like you know what's going on. Let's do this together popping. So as they think they bought to get it popping already run off the bus reynolds that is so so so ray comes off the bus and I'm just GONNA say. Peace gator mask from choice words and was like it's about to go down if you basically get back on that. So he he he told you. I'm GonNa pray for you. And he got her and then leaves me to championship. Run mad the trash talking the persona. You have big bad movers. You understand rate it's ray Lewis et ry Barscott daily a daily Est. I don't think it was on a team. He's gone by Jerry. Johnson Loading Outta. There is there as as quick as nasty as ferocious. They had their leader. We had Choi polly James Harrison. Ham Egg Ferrier so. We're pretty leveled out. I want you to deep. I want you to tell the people how it really as much as people WanNa talk about the hard hidden. They don't we don't talk enough. About how much game plan it went into that game because we saw each other twice a year and then we had to win a division on top of that and plus even talk about the anxiety and the mental folks took to go. You know what for for us on the defensive end it was Dick Lebeau. We call him the wizard the wizard. He's the reason and he would come up with just a little twist on everything not everything at least five to sixty Fisa week. That would be something that a guy can look at the film. Assey and be like okay. This is what they're about to do step for that one person in Detroit probably picking something off or linebacker does supposed to drop. He actually rushing. Listen someday they had a lot of trouble with across cross dog lick. They had a lot of that. But to be honest with you man when it got down to that game other than that it was just demand in front of you own like do your job better than he doing. He is in everything else will fall in place if we do. All we gotta do is our job. We do our job. We can't lose fans John. We can't lose and then you know we gotta do. We gotta put some points on the board and that's how we felt what was funny about that year man because us on such a tear. You know you're lifting left tackles up on a sat one of my favorite sachs is you aerosmith Brett. Kiesel Down Tents Tennessee. I'm the only one guy find. No listen listen. So they didn't try to make me a poster boy anyway so we go in a sack were eventually on right so I got him. Kiesel and ambig- a guiding airsmith. I'm on the bottom so I grab his legs and I'm trying to pull his legs in to just making fall. Well he ain't falling so I'm like I'm a dumping go to picking up like that but at the same time go to peaky Mug Kiesel missing this way. Inner slaps his chest that way so odd job actually in the air come down with him. They walk away. Everybody walks away. No flag do com they. I'm the only one with a fine him a locker and you know what I want to say it but I think it was someone on their other. Two guys weren't like me was crazy about that. You can pull it up. Because it's hard on a stylized satellite go broke his way like something broke crap. It was like a crackdown echoed in the air. And I remember was like remember. If you look at the end the plate you go to grab his hand. Help him up that man. Let's help me able to scare you. Why he thought he had really they really. They really craft something on have been Jim. Thank God he got up so if you go in you look at the replay of it. They watched me as I'm walking off the field in walking next to woody right and I'm talking to would like would look back. I don't WanNa look like the dictator flag.

Your ball out of your mind we get into the playoffs rebounding out We beat San Diego. We Go to Baltimore AFC CHAMPIONSHIP. I just want to talk about the AFC championship that year. At and we'll get into super bowl. I Love Stephen. Show taken from their championship. What in the reason. I'm asking you that because I know from the office from a standpoint you're talking about I mean yes the year choice. Pick out and talk about that game. No no no no no those are two different gangs the AFC championship use Baltimore before the Super Bowl Ryan Clark the Ryan Clark hit on the big ten know that as your super bowl year. That was that was before temple. Oh Choi picked him at the end running back the talk about that again. Yeah so Man Like it was you know like I said it's just it's just a total total hatred for the hatred dislike hatred time. We hated the motherfuckers lie. Hatred is now like like. Hey I just I dislike can strongly but at the end of the day. I'M NOT GONNA say I'd be respecting. Felt like that was never neutral. You know respect special you know at the end of the game. We wanted to try and tell you tear each other as off during that process. That'S NO S. No question about it. I won't to try and put you to sleep and everything else but You know at the end of the game means respect in just leading into that you know in today's game do it was honestly. We just felt like it was nothing that we could do that. They could combat to beat us. You had you had one of the big players because you're sack shrimp while you're hit leads to the biggest interception thinking got them still a history. Choi Takes Yard. Oh yeah he couldn't he couldn't. He couldn't do what he was wanting to do with the ball. We had pressure on man. Let us cry. Described as setup. Because you're going. I mean you're the reason that happened. Well I'm just trying to whip the tackle to be honest which man and I'm like you know what it's I think we're up by. What two or three yes. I'm like the soul you know I'm like I'm trying to strip sack to be honest with Jim. Like I get a strip sack would pick it out. We'll be alright anything. Be Good and dude on the big honest with you. I was so pissed as Assad went down with him. A look to see you know you look to see if they got the ball through the body and I hear the crowd had something. I'll turn around. I'm running back and I'm so tired at the time. I can't even blot. Nobody Sam trying to block somebody with troy giving him the zigzag everybody's talking about no. I'm going to the House. So let's talk about that Super Bowl. You know the next game. The hundred interception return. I read that you actually were not so you're supposed to blitz on that play. Did it talk about that? Play and talk about Antra role trying to get the ball from you right after the US will It wasn't a sorry sorry towns to shake so God did I literally that whole first half man. It felt like not feel like like we were step behind like just step off. He was getting rid of the ball. Just a half step where step before we got there and you know or he wasn't holding a long enough. There's a lot of quick quick quick passing stuff like that so we get down there. It's like a two seconds left and he don't call it all out big on call all out. Mex- Bliss saw like even if I'll bliss Kurt SCO see me he get rid of all. I'm we'll get there But I'm like I know Norris. Tim Is is bliss on my inside. So he's basically going to be the guy that'll be free so get down free. I'm have to get this tackle to step at me so I said I'm a fake bliss. I'm a step at the tackle. He go respect that he goes to step out to me. That open the whole wide enough for ten minutes to get through between the garden at Taco and I'm a drop in coverage Animal Pele sort of quick slant in is I was closest thing to me and I'm like I'm I'm a gamble like right. Now is the time nobody got. No time outs shoot for the end zone so again went on a quick slant in as I dropped looking at it in looked like looking at me and I'm like dude. I'm telling you I'm looking at him like he's not throw this ball his arm. Go up all the city but he throws ball now night he just through the buy side Oughta subduing. I'm telling you this like all this on a slow Muslim and I'm surprised that he threw the boss. I kind of catch it like like this. I'm like just go to ball like I'm talking to myself the whole time. So as he throws the ball in a hit it catching I look up and I'm like I'm gone. It ain't nobody in front of me going out get through fighting with Shay in this like sit team. People like trying to grab the ball. I'm like no man gone just blocking somebody. You're getting this as I look man. It seemed like they had fifteen people on the field. Now seeing the ORIG- Everywhere so shave finally goes in Block. Staw blocks skirt Blocks Kurt we kind of stumbled through on. I think I was behind me. And I think the tidy and tried to these K- runner. So we finally breakthrough that little cluster in a tackle common kiesel hits him to slow him down. And I'm like you know what I'm GonNa make it as I say that is a running back now and that's the guy that Willie ends up blocking in almost trip over. Would 'cause I gotta jump over him jump over wood. I'm like man like I got it. Make time to had run off. Co Seconds did asked. I'm running for thirty seconds jumper. Would I looked to my left like it's another line? I'm like man lately. Carl Lewis Lymon stole as I get through there are see thing dover him but like I'm going in and carrying a ball like a loaf of bread it's like this nom de I'm out of it in fits comes in from all right and what happened. Is He went to strip the ball but what he did is he hit my choice when he hit my tests. It made me aware he was there in the gave me time to cover the ball so he actually hooked the ball with his hand so when he hooked the ball with his hand he tries to dig is feeding so that. I don't fall But what happens is breast in his me from behind and we knock enroll all the way in so if he had better hang. Yeah it wouldn't. It took no more than this right rugby. Gone and Larry Fitzgerald actually went back when you see the very far zoomed out version. He runs into his teammate. Entre role on the sideline used He. I saw him talking about how if he doesn't role he would have been. The hero of the Super Bowl saved. Well he went and got a chance to be the hero the super bowl if they hadn't called that felonious home right bottom line right on back on that game. The big question from that game as the steelers official handled just tweeted out. Willy's out for from pre-game the brown suit with the hat. Dookie Brown sleeveless with the hard part relates Yes what did you guys all. Think of that as his teammates who was fly back then right I thank you yes right now right. Yeah Steve Harvey back they read. We WanNA put forward because I think what people know of James Harrison past the Super Bowl. Pass away as you said we. We lost we go to Dallas Losing Green Bay You on terrier still one of the hardest things in the league at that time and then absolutely we get passed by two thousand twelve men. The culture starts changing and plus birth. You've been very vocal about it I by the time I leave the team. I'M GONNA get released in two thousand thirteen. A good portion of the team is still fairly together. Because the guys who you grew to love and start trickling out however I can in Tps till China around as a steeler as a guy who's in grain in Fatimid threat the history of the Pittsburgh steeler organization. What was a change? What what really made you start a a change that maybe this thing is it. You know this is it the Antonio Brown starting to come along what's starts starts. Really change in your your. I guess your impression of what the steeler family and what we grew in what we built is starting to change. I think it's the emergence of a lot of individuality instead of teaching and the acceptance in allowing of that process with in that today or actually you know feeding into that. You know You know nowadays. All the team organization coaches no I think I think that's that's that's that's the process of what it is. Of course as a you know whoever to hit mayonnaise and then what your team the players you know what they project what they You know people at the end of the day. Tonight's what she is the head man except whatever. How can you not be as is not will be a repercussion? Were consequence for it because before this I'm just trying to build a bridge here. You know you talked about a something of individuality after superbowl they. They let go out super bowl. Vpn San Antonio home so the law is already set light. Listen not one man is. GonNa make a breaker team. We should sweet. We just sit in San Antonio homes to and see. That was something that as a player we like. Oh okay well. Maybe it's not going direction. We think it's gone. You're not saying Maybe you know maybe they ran in this back in. You know. I'm going to be to be totally honest. It wasn't like it. Wasn't you know things there that you know was a reason for you? Know Ambient Lego even though he wasn't phenomenal player. Where you know so that was something. We may be but Like I said as the process went you know went on and on it got less and less restricted. Seems like we're walking on eggshells there in terms of being very careful with our words but From a fan perspective now no back end working of all this would seem to lead like there were some deep if superstars or more me personalities which base the timeframe points a little bit of Antonio Brown and some others but the headman referred to has to be I would think Mike. Tomlin less there is a problem with the GM Kevin over your head. Coach obviously has to has to spearhead a lot of things. But you know like I said at the end of the day even when I was in New England. You know at a talk with You know Actually craft On on you know we had a conversation in in basically you know he wanted to know what would made it so different between here near is now so in you know in awe said beyond what you made your your bill. Say He's not taken nothing from nobody for nothing acts as a B. B. in it don't matter if you know that if his time or or or if it's a this isn't A rookie. It's a so you were in New England for a pretty short time you were released by the pads by the steelers on December twenty third twenty seventeen and signed by something else too though people say that it's No Fun. New England is not. You know it's it's you can't do anything. No fine will. How many jobs are you paid to go and have fun? You pay to go there and do a job. The people that say New England is this is that it's people that aren't used to being told what to do in having to do it is people aren't used to discipline a structure Tell you that right now. That's it I'm not GONNA lie ahead. No problems there blaming it was disciplined and was structured. You personally have a problem with that. You WanNa do what you WanNa do you like it there especially for you know year in and year out. It's We got one more difficult. You know sorry I wanna I WANNA get into WANNA stay in Pittsburgh for a little bit. let's talk about your relationship. Where Might Armand especially back in your career. Because I think it's important for Uday slated people what what. What was that like as far as what you call to be a miniature or would you call it to be a guy who I was. Never I was never called to be a mentor. Never never do when I when I came back the whole emphasis on me. Come back from Cincinnati I came back with when I came out of retirement. Was You wanted me to come in and play this game so the crazy thing is the game rooms. I we'll get like ten to twelve snaps fifteen snaps. Whatever they ended up like thirty or forty snaps. I was like okay. I don't know about this body was dead. You know what I'm saying. 'cause you came from. Macau check this point right. I can't straight from college so That like I said I wasn't wasn't tripping night it is release and that's why you call me back now leading into the other years they want They WANNA Jarvis Jones to start. And so would they were doing. They were splitting time with us. And all that so. If you go back you'll see in two thousand thirty two fifteen to two thousand fifteen yards from started in. I think went to through a streak of where we drop three or four games. You can look this up to you if you're killing so we dropped those three or four games. Nakasone says your start your planet out. Just you know you tired. Let me know whatever so we run out until we get to. WanNa say it was Baltimore Wind Up Losing Baltimore the next year Ada Anything. He starts As TJ understood. No didn't come to seventeen Comes in seventeen but so in sixteen we drop maybe maybe another two in a row maybe three and a you're starting in Bo. I started out We go in. We ended up moving to New England. They signed me back for seventeen percent saying they ended up drafted. Tj Cool whatever. So still don't talk of you being like themselves. I'm already I'm already I'm already. I'm already expected. At least forty percents of the snaps. Like forty to sixty percents. Would it was okay so we get into? Ota's and like. I got a practitioner. That'd be done okay. So we get to training. Camp is you ain't got a practice during do nine. Okay then I find out week three of training camp that but in TJ are two starters they beat me out. They beat meow. But I didn't practice okay. I'll see what you doing. So WE PLAY FIRST GAME IN CLEVELAND. Who is coming from the saying that? You don't have to do anything that from this time Tom. So we go to in Willie knows. I'm a practice practice every day. No matter what harder percent you know I don't. I don't take days off even when I'm hurt practice to pursue so we get to a Cleveland the first year and I think I get like two or three snaps. Whatever it is I tell them right in there until Mike I tell Kevin released me. I said I see what you're doing. Play young guys. I ain't got no problem with that but we'll see here and I said that's not what I came here for. Just released asked him for release. I think it was My agent call them every week asked him to release me for late like five weeks or whatever it was so we get to Five or six weeks. Whatever it was we get to Kansas City addressing me for Kansas City about fifteen snaps. Go Out There. I get pretty decent stats. If not better than you know. Both starters I see another GonNa see another snap after that. I don't get another player again. Released me let me fear of pain. You know he said he he quote his words with. Ibm I said I'd be dumb ass to release you in one of these news get hurt go down. I'm sorry that's what you WANNA do. I said well I'll tell you this right here right now. I said Fine Plan I mean as the game came in. He didn't have me dress to play. I less the lock. I was trying. Yes I went home so I was trying to do whatever I can to try. And make him release them. I would like literally like so AB- like I didn't really show up late to shit but I would try not even. Dna is the honest with you. I would I would try and do whatever I could like like practice. I wouldn't nine the practice be like dying during an hurt so I started doing the my backer. I'm hurt dangling weight room squash five six hundred. Don't practice so. I'm doing this so before they leave to go the US plan Houston right so say say why. Don't you just let me stay home on knocking? Do that was like the twenty third Twenty Four Twenty Four for twenty fifth. He releases A Who are so that night or the evening. I get a call from a from Bill Belgium. Yeah I get a call from bill in saying he wants me to come up with everybody adopt right so I call our call. Somebody on steelers organization. I'm like a give me a call. I said that like I'm know I'M GONNA up here of Daniel Resign. Your whatever download appear in. I'm probably signed with them. You know whatever like I gave them that you know he said none. Just do you. GotTa do whatever who. And it's still being loyal. This is still being loyal Right at the end of the day and you know crazy is at the end of the day at the sat back. I was like us it. I said I go back to Pittsburgh and I'm a New England now and I'm thinking I'm like I'll go back to Pittsburgh and I'm sitting there. I'm I'm stolen on. Sign the contract and all this other stuff you know. Whatever in the clarification CANCEMI's like you sit here play here. You get an opportunity to get claims. That's what you WANNA do or you go back to Pittsburgh and you sit in go through the same bullshit. And I'm like you know what I got no choice like I'm here. Yeah so we get there He tells me bill. Listen on the what happened to Pittsburgh on care about. Won't let you know like you know what we do here. Almost shoots you straight and best when it's going to be. He said you learn these different zero. He said you learn Os will say you'll be put on more stuff and like I said as we went through Ended up having to where no I was. Basically almost all. But maybe six seven snaps Subaru. Wasn't anything familiar from their deepest audience was allowed familiar. It was all different. Do you know he is he. He can adjust he will. He will get his talent in the positions that they play like. I was playing denying an linebacker. So defenses. I was planning in where I was switched to left and right but that was only I think as a linebacker for that defense so he made it to where I was able to play in my normal right position. He just made it so that I was either D. Lineman or linebacker dependent on what the defense call for on the right side like he can adjust he can he can he can. He can make his talent fit. What it is they can do and he can adjust to. What's being done to him or what he's saying. We'll be Like I'll believe he goes into a game with two games. He goes to game plan with the game plan. He wants to and when he sits back. Looks and says okay. They're going to adjust in. This is what they're gonNA do. I'll just to firefly yours get like that. You know I think that's That's a big women. You can adjust on like Dick. Lebeau could sit out there. Gigabit didn't even carry a call sheet. He didn't even care. You know your bike to 'cause Dickey didn't even care costs and he say we'll run every day. He caught her office head just from looking. Is He gonNA just like that? It would have broke my heart to see you want Super Bowl New England but I understood decided it. Would you question you would have been state coming to coming back to you? Know you know man like I say every everything happens for a reason because when you look at it would've gave him six and then the other one would have to be honest with you do if I got about that no do if I got that one dude. I would've came back to another in. It would have been actually New England. Yeah it would have been out of spite Wow So do you still hold a grudge to Mike Tomlin to this day? I don't I don't hold like a like a grudge. What I'm saying. I've seen in talk to him but I've seen Talked TO HIM. But my my thing is this as a man. You should have been man enough because you always say that you know. Don't ask hard questions. Let's you won't hard innocence. While I was asking hard questions. I was trying to get you to give me heart answer but she wanted to wait until I was sixteen gangs deep into the season to to to do that and then probably thinking nobody would pick me and to be honest with you. If he gave me what I wanted week one I probably would never been in New England. Believe that a hundred percent. That's all I've got one more question for on the field now you did spend a year in Cincinnati guy who's revered in Pittsburgh is linebacker. Vont has perfect now. You shared a room with him a linebacker room for a season. What are your impressions? Avant as perfect as a guy and as a player slash opponent Nevada is. Is He a cool dude? I'M NOT GONNA lie. He he's not. You know not not able unlike that in no I think he just like he wasn't like that really when I was there. As far as what? You're you're starting to see now but on you know he had like old school mentality light. You know what I'm saying like coming out here to archie satellite. I played the game to hurt. I didn't play the engine you. I played to hurt you to make sure that you knew you was in a football game and at that point time back. Then that's really you know how he was. You Know Planet. I felt like but you know the stuff that you know. He has done. Recently in with the rule changes to be honest with you a lot of it with the rule. Changes is is not legal anymore back in G. That wouldn't even get a. I'm were like can't even come and clean up a guy on the Powell like you. I wanted to ask you that. Because you can't oppose the boy of lead chains. You seem by Roger Powers of Park Avenue. Put you on the pulse aboard. This is old. Nfl This the new NFL and they had your face smacked up against all GONNA fill one. Tell the people how much she was fine during a time when when he was trying to make the transition from helmets. Thomas two did you feel like the. Nfl was targeting. You as someone who didn't respect the new age the new ways of the NFL. I felt like they were trying. They were trying to make an example at me but they picked the wrong person make example because I will sit there quietly. Take it Understood what they were trying to do but at the same point in time it to the point to where we would be on the sideline in them ref would blurt somebody would be talking to the rest light. Just start talking goofy in. They lert some light a told us to call everything who is they. Who is they? They told you to call everything getting you know. Questionable calls that nobody would get called card. You know you were getting calls US getting you will grab it on Youtube listening real talk. Probably fifty percent of the time somebody was holding me around my neck period. And now if that's not a whole. I don't know what it is like if I can block you by putting my arm around your neck then I mean I don't I don't understand it. How are you fine? I was I was flying? Probably about two hundred twenty five thousand dollars. The most you've ever been finding one game. One game was seventy five. Is that the mass aquatic dude. How you GonNa Find Me Sir? Do listen listen. Listen listen on listening everything. I love on my dad's great man without backs fifty percent of what I had. I just hitting because I want him Lucille Ball. If I had new things will find me. Seventy five thousand. I would have tried to kill it telling you right seventy five and people to lie to you but I happen right in Jesus thing might on every day. We'll say what he had to be. Look at today but but this is a hideous mess caused. That was crazy. Is You also smackdown on on Josh? Cribs DAG legal. That's legal but did you feel like since it happened in the say happened in the same game. It was like almost back to back right right right right. Point is see what happened. I was looking to put him to sleep does. Because that's my homeboy. GotTa Talk Greasy. Two so I was looking to put him to sleep so I wasn't looking to put Mascara at asleep but he just went to sleep. What happened is those two hits happen and Dan Remember it. It was like two more hits across the league so I was watching the game day where they go back and forth Bam Bam Bam Bam Bam we all got taxed but they tried to rip my head it off with it but people was crazy about that game was I remember after we after we worked on. It looked like you just a madman. Like you just out there waterboard waterboy and people like you would just outdid knocked out coverage not the massacre Mass Qua- and then people were saying like man. If you see bullet see depot just duck you became. That's when the is starting to kick ass but it started taking on demand had That's telling about the magazine cover. That's like out that life there. Yeah so I was so what I what I would do is like I'm like listen. That's when I started hitting people low so are Denver Yeah Agriculture and almost tours. Acl But it just slew. You don't you will open done for the season after. Yeah Yeah Yeah. It just sprained his a his. Acl like literally. It was receivers island point. Nobody Abbas we savers. Nihay dot on me like I'm like listening you go pay my fine. I hit you. Hi I got your fine right. Yeah so it was like literally it was like three receivers. I had a cold. I'll hit you high. You know what's crazy because I remember? I remember US Game Tag. The locker use pissed off. And then the big hit on Eric Decker. Fuck this was crazy. I remember I remember you saying to yourself. I remember you talking to you about it. Like a game he was like. What are they want me to do? Like I can't hit him. I can't hit him. Lo Mas will star flag football. And I remember looking at you like. He's got a fucking point. This is a moving target with the best athletes. In the whole genome. How do you? How do you see this man to do his job on top of worrying about where he's GonNa hit like it's impossible? You can't have where my head and then you gotta realize last audits helmet-to-helmet they're doing any part of the helmet ado running a ball as I'm coming to tackle him. He's not GONNA stay here. He's going to go here. I'm already here. You want me to duck even further to get out of the way his hidden mine so I told him I never forget this so they had me come down to New York a semi would Kevin Kogo right. What I know is Kevin Cobra was an assassin okay. He don't liked me either down. That don't like nobody. We get shit done. It's already fucked up right. I know it though. I've got somebody that was help me win. We get down there. And he's trying to play like you know he's team sit saying that. They OUGHTA questioning psalms as Rog hat. Yeah so I'm guessing. Whatever Colbert Gasson? Whatever so finally he starts talking. I'm like so listen so you're telling me if I go to tackle Agai. Acid died that his ankles. I said the last second he drops his head puts it at his ankles and hit helmet-to-helmet. That's what me yes. You will be fine while I said okay. So you're telling me I can't win. I'm GonNa do what I do. You do what you dislike. The last thing I wanted to ask is that We had Ike Taylor on the program Couple of months back east so that you gave some advice to his son. Ivan about laying football and I both have very very young sons. Maybe one day we'll all but what would that advice be to youngsters out there They're looking to make a tackle well. He got two young young bulldog themselves. Stephen Choice so I'm not looking well. Mark my kids they Accuse nothing Oh my vice to him. At that time he might have been asking me something that needed this answer though normally is when be by what. I've told him he gotta take the soul out. Boys you gotta hit him so hard they sold only wanNA play this game. No one knows To quadros one. What do you take away from your career crisper and to do at this point year career? And I know you transitioned into the movies in and all this other stuff. Could we ever see you? Join A fucking world's strongest man. 'cause of the. Shit you through open.

With us no Frank Gore's the best running back in the league. I know Dr he can't get Curtis Martin's in right. Yeah that's different. He's in New York. I told you to New York rule. You do your Thang in New York. You'RE GONNA get in yeah man is. GonNa be like a unanimous hall of fame. Voter Nemeth is in the hall of Fame Joe. Have you ever looked at Joe. Namus numbers record Joe Nemeth was not a good player. That's just a fact of Jillian interceptions or close to touch until he had in Konic moment in not just in sports or the N._F._l.. But in all sports running off the finger or running off the field with his finger in the air number one they were the first A._F._l.. Team to beat an N._F._l.. Team in the Super Bowl that he was the you know the for our coach super super famous Joe Namus numbers really super highly mediocre. He was in playgirl magazine raw was last man standing is driven by Keys Automotive Group visit keys cars dot com. I can't believe during the summer of O._J.. You mentioned Marcus. Allen Travis got a little given even come on well with American cool by the way I can't believe you. Oh yeah go back to the voice. I'd like to Marcus Allen was good football player. Yeah until Al Davis Buried right him on the bench. I got sidetracked by the California thing. I don't think the chargers as part of our culture here so I just I just kind of move passed in California. I know it is but I was thinking forty niners raiders. I was thinking rams. I was not thank you Charlie. No No of course not on the list now yeah I told him Adrian Peterson like three days after Adrian Peterson gun trouble that didn't go well to his face. Yeah we're at the Super Bowl you know they bring people people through all the time and did the whole interview Lt Lt Lt. Thank you thank you thank you and then rising city all right thanks Adrian Peterson. He looked at me like what what the hell you talking about and everybody at the desk looks to me like what did you and I'm looking looking like what I didn't even know. I did it producer mayor goes you. Just call them Adrian Peterson. Oh Yeah No <hes> thank you lt my bad. It was like the day after Adrian peers who got in trouble for kids yeah now my finest moment black. They look so far apart now you guys are making me though this wasn't that it was that Adrian Peterson was in the news over and over again I had eater Peterson on my brain. That's why blackened well. I mean I guess but that's not why did it height difference Z.. I said it wasn't good the same hugh. I said it wasn't good. What do you want from for me? I don't know this is a good bit. I'M GONNA ride sure you'll grab. You watched a bit of traffic. Oh this weekend I did and then slot. John is Latin and that was the end of that. Oh yeah well okay. He was right. I have you ever met him. As Lon- yes I haven't had the pleasure giant is he looks big. His calves are the size of like my my like. I I have no body part. That's the size of his like. He's a massive mad. How does he likes five? He's like six five. He's and he's he's so statuesque. You wonder if you like going. Did you around sport because you look like you belong to the N._B._A.. That's how big he is so when you look at that have particularly I I go and how he looked like he was a man amongst boys. No we have grown as men on L. A. F. C. Squad but their soccer players. We don't have any power forward. Go running around like our biggest guy might be deal right. <unk> deals like a big guy for soccer player Zoltan is what would you say rise like. He's he's just massive. He he stands out on the field. Even when you're betting you just look at the pitch and you see everyone does that guy stands out in terms of his side well what he did was exactly what grades do is they call their shot and they go out there and they do it and not and it this leading up to it was all about Zoltan and what he said in his lifetime saying and kind of throwing and some serious shade at the entire League and saying like I get that I'm here but of course on the bus player here because I was the best player over there in the real league right and now I'm over here so don't don't bring me this. Is this guy better than yours acai better than you because it's it's silly I was. I wasn't even in this. This is a retirement job for me and then he went out there and did what he did and put an end of the conversation sort of because you can't help but wonder if you can go out and just give a hat trick at will the warranty trick in all the hats so all the time and helping your team be more successful. Can I try and I'm because he doesn't give a damn because this is an important to him. Then why then why talk smack if it's not important to you because somebody offended his sensibilities by by suggesting that he would like he's just floating around around like it's one of these things to use the unlike Lebron decides at the end of his life that there's an Italian league team that says we're GonNa pay you two hundred million dollars a year to come here and play a couple of seasons any life fine. I'M GONNA go play at the end of my playing. They're floating through and you're getting twenty nights or whatever twenty twenty twenty and then some Italian league players really really good and somebody goes up to you and said hey you know for breezy over there. Is He better than you come on man. She'll really come on man I'm going. Go over here. Wh why Steffi Watch this stuff is out there and puts eighty on the board will visit board will then when he does that and then you look up and you go okay. What if you are capable of doing that then? Why is your team nine points behind Elliott? We'll see if you're that good then then you you don't have to go full time but just be full enough so that your teams the number one at least in the conference but that's not the case and so I can't help but wonder if you can just go oh out and get a hat trick is the best team in the league then. Why aren't you perform at that level because I'm pretty sure they're paying a hefty salary? That's galaxies problem. I I mean I look I mean David Beckham tried like Beck's was out not at less than the tank then this guy you have to take great here though cancer man God though later on that night after no we stay down there props L. A._F._C.. They provide like seven buses partied your carbon footprint right now but fly on private jets for zone the solar power after it was about. I don't know one in the morning with the King Taco Dear Old Town Pasadena Andre Blessings. He was in error Audrey blessing chief. Yes I'm looking at this through something I saw something blessings. It was in near <hes> enjoying a TACO with a couple of friends and so it was fun we loss of course but the fans showed up they tried to damper us. Put these rubber mats on air which we tore out at a stadium and but we had some nice chance like we can't hear you you know to their support assess <hes> section which is far inferior to ours A._F._c. but it was fun. It was a good time but do bad to put the hat trick on us and just gotTa give them respect. GotTa gotTa give it up man. He talked it and he went out and back it up and I got no problem with that to give you an example of the distance since Travis we have forty six points. The next closest is thirty nine and that's the other conference so I mean we're the dodgers right now of this league and essentially might trust talking smack and he goes on get nineteen home runs ends one game and beat the dodgers goes back down and you know he gets one before and then he looks at pools like I'm doing my own. I'm supposed to do that. That's what I mean like. I get it that that galaxies not having a great season and that L. A._F._C. is the best team in the league. I get all of that but but with the conversation was who's the best player in the League's Latin or Villa Ins locked-on went out there and did work Joe Fellas. They're a very important question to ask you travis and I were just discussing. We want to get your opinion as well. Yes boxers or just boxers are we are still buying the boxer briefs for years. I need a little compression now. The direct brand boxer briefs. Why are we still making them? Has Anybody ever had had a pair of boxer shorts. That were comfortable. They gathered they gather insurance that you don't want it together. Yeah who signed off on that. I think they're still popular in Nevada. You yeah his what's up <music> out a pretty sure that's social. Media Shaggy looks like a boxer Guy Shaggy well. I think it helps with his condition. Condition was parents chose not to have this procedure when he was born sweat. That'd be perfect. He sweat fifty eight gets another key sweat concert not for the music but for the people won't she go as a show well we should we should broadcast live McKee connects with you will see week yeah well. That's coming up to Elsie because once you go all the way one way you gotta swing a key sweat will make it swing thing. I'm kind of worried about this O._C.. Week thing I can't wait to go but I'm worried about myself like I know myself and Super Bowl Week. I know how to do all that. You know that got pretty crazy as you can see. I think this might get a bit out of control so we're going to live in a house altogether for a week the week of August fifth down in Orange County. We're GONNA be doing events all over the city go to our social media. They don't like to wish keyshawn happy birthday but we do have E._S._p._N.. E._S._P._N.. Schedule up joy all week long. We're GONNA be all of the city. It's going to be great. It's going to be a week to remember mainly because Roger I might get arrested or worse. That sounds like a Y P. Whatever as long as your your problem that's right Rob Laguna beach see it's still got that vibe of heard about it does it does I've been might be joining them in trouble well? I I got some spots for you down there. Why do you have spots down there? Nice place to have a drink. Look at the ocean hanging out okay. What's wrong with that okay not? I knew I wasn't even talking about that. We're all talking about that. You were Odell Beckham Junior's on the cover of G. Q. This Week and he says that he felt disrespected by the giants because they didn't tell them face what was going on. He also said that the main reason that the giants and their brand stayed alive was because he was the one that was the center of attention <hes> we can get into the giants piece of that and whether or not they're disrespecting them. Whatever guys get traded guys get sat down? I don't really have a ton. Interesting now what I do have interested in is the fact that the Cleveland browns are on the cover of G. Q.. The Cleveland browns are getting a ton of attention from a lot of people. Here's Jake Trotter talking about the expectations that the browns have on them for this upcoming season. People asked me if this would be a disappointment if they didn't make the playoffs and I would I would say yes just just based on the expectations and the talent level this team has I don't know that I would call them the Super Bowl contender because they just haven't been in the fire yet and typically typically. You need to be in that situation a couple times for your ready to win a super bowl but I mean I think that they to me are the slight favorite to win the division. I think the expectation is that they should make the playoffs and like hey if you win a game or two <hes> you know who knows this is what I'm talking talking about. This is a team that hasn't made the playoffs in. I don't know how many years spend a minute dozens okay. They're not good. They weren't only not good. They were legitimately terrible really since they've been resurrected selected after the Ravens went to Baltimore that one decent season in there and since then they've been anywhere between pretty lousy to historically terrible the way they were up until last season and all of a sudden they have one season that was okay seven eight one yep to hey if they don't win a couple of games in the playoffs if they don't win the division if they're not this if they're on the cover G. Q. Baker Mayfield telling his teammates to get either the trains leaving the station. Get on get off. This is a lot of noise coming from a team that has accomplished exactly zero. Thanks yeah you know it's but what this is. What the media does you know? We'd like new toys. What do you WANNA see Tom? Brady shirt isn't a cover G.. Q. Magazine again holding a goat hard pass yeah so he's he's the Academy of Excellence and has been for two decades well. We can't have just him be the focus for two decades so we live in a nice new shiny toy Baker Mayfield last. We had a fantastic story written by Meena kinds. He's GonNa Cover of E._S._P._N.. The magazine to get Odell uh-huh Beckham junior cover G. Q. as you pointed out <hes> this is just the new toy right now and the question is whether or not they're going to be worthy of the attention or more importantly will the attention make them not worthy of reaching their full potential where they get distracted to buy this. I think they're gonNA finish nine seven and I think they're gonna hit a little scared and that scare is going to cause them to become ninety. Seven in other words they'll have a great start. They may get like five and two and then going there for real for real and then they hit us scared and then settled somewhere like nine seven which would be a very successful season based upon their history what they don't have in what they did have last season is they do not have the benefit of people not taking them seriously and I know that it's professional professional sports in everybody's good and the talent level between the worst team in the League and the best team in the League is pretty small. I get it I get it but I I also understand that the N._F._l.. And is played by human beings and when you're GONNA go play a team that had won three three games in three years. You're not taking that team the same way that you're getting ready to play the rams or the Patriots or the packers with Aaron Rodgers or whoever happens to be the hot team at the time the browns were terrible forever and there's a certain thing that you get when you go to play those teams. You know they're gonNA make a mistake. You know. They're gonNA give you one or two. You know that they're going to let it get away from them and that happened through a lot of the season last year because it was happening you go back to the beginning of the season. They should've beat Pittsburgh. I didn't know how to cash it in. They're going to get everybody's attention different. Now he is is to coach is different. He is but so's everybody else's attention when they go to play the browns. They're not going to get the benefit of the team coming in there and thinking. They're ready to go when they're really not the way that you're ready to go. When you play the Patriots you play the rams or you play the chargers the chiefs you better that'd be ready to go from that kickoff or you're GONNA get stomped? The browns didn't have that. They're going to have it this year. You know what else to have though better expectations for themselves they pry into game against Pittsburgh thinking I would probably going to lose and they looked like going Whoa we're still in it so just as the expectations of other teams has them expectation to have themselves have also shifted and regarded Odell Beckham Genius statement about keeping their franchise alive. I just did a quick look through of the E._S._p._N.. One hundred most famous athletes in the world the first football a player on this list is Odell Beckham junior now. I know you think that Oh why not Tom Brady. This is the world you know Tom. Brady is famous in the United States. Aaron Rodgers finished United States but this is about global appeal Odell Beckham Genius First on the list of the N._F._l.. So he's not altogether wrong in a sense of his popularity has contained to make the giants more than just a laughing stock doesn't mean that he's the one that he's the only reason why you care about the giants because the the fans and the history is going to be what it is but for intensive purposes whenever you brought up the giants his name was soon mentioned yet that falls into the category of there's no such thing as bad publicity right because for the vast majority thirty of Odell Beckham run that we've seen it hasn't been about football for the last several times we've brought up his name. It was about everything else we go back to originally when we start paying attention to him because of the football and then it was because he was kicking the net near Josh Norman and crying. Crying going crazy and pictures on instagram and all this stuff and it hasn't been about the football and while so while it's good for his cue rating that we're talking about Odell I understand we talk about Odell a lot but we didn't talk about Odell. The football player in New Yorkers Odell was unhappy in New New York Odell wanted out it was about all the things around him that had very little do with his play on the field a lot of it has to do with the guy throwing him to football didn't help either prematurely coming out no no no breaking news Dabur keyshawn birthday and shaggy just shows ignore it. Social Media Shaggy drew three hours twenty four minutes after the entire zoar The New York jets wish them happy birthday as they play their twenty years n._F._l.. Films Keyshawn Happy Birthday but he e._S._p._N.. Los Angeles it took three hours twenty four minutes in the in the on his own radio show and he put up a picture. It looks like Jeff Passan. There's a million pictures of keyshawn and all of us together other keyshawn with his crew. His boys know we get a picture of keyshawn from nineteen ninety eight like his first year doing television Jeff Passan suit some animated balloons shaggy Jan much better. Oh Man Nick foles you leave Jeff. What am I great movie revenge of the nerds thirty five years ago? It was a great movie it. It was hilarious. Yes it's also one of those movies that in light of recent Patty wants I say this. I know there's a lot of stuff that movie. That's not okay anymore. Oh absolutely there's there's a lot of stuff in that movie. That was probably not okay then but we just kind of whatever ooh man this is. This is creepy creepy. This is American pie before American pie some of that in our no about the same time as weird science. I think the same summer because we used to go to the theater at the man's theater remember that in my sure Oh sure can they're all the time watching this over and over again betty. I don't think I'll ever seen it. Have you never seen a nosy. I saw a half of it once. How okay when did you was it like in the last ten or fifteen years I mean when it came out okay so even then it didn't hit you right? <hes> I can see why wasn't Wurmser and Lamar and Lamar was next to the Olympics and Lamar Javelin slowdown it didn't he had a big Jab Linzie. Oh well like I said a lot of that movie that at the time okay now another thing L Z missed yeah that was my choice dropped. Just gotTa take it just happened just avoided. It wasn't my newest member of the New York jets Levy on bell did not like that he was receiving a little criticism for doing things is that were not football related. He took to <hes> instagram to let everybody know how displeased he was tired of me. You'LL YOU WANNA make music basketball. He everything football talking. y'All got a favorite person. Happy Your Mom Your Dad wherever you don't do you think when they work from the nine to five they go home and only doing worry about themselves. Worry about with serial numbers coming up you think waking up he had Taco Tuesdays days. I'll be swoop may not be seeing all day. She'll go to the do nothing or kids. Billy Wade senior so nothing is legitimate for me this. I will be airport on escalated. I really I want to be wanted this working out first of all. I don't know if he's going to get any target endorsements anytime soon shade at the target where he's one hundred percent right yes. He's a hundred percent right. He's right. I mean I mean listen levy on builds. A lot of things stoop is not one of them beyond say does not seeing all day right she axe she has like sneakers and stuff. <hes> she's a mom. She's a wife. She's fierce <hes>. She's got going on Travis when you leave the radio station. Are you thinking about Chris. Thank goodness no WHOA WHOA by the way I texted Travis on Friday. There's still and you're the only one by the so thank you Chris. <hes> no look. I don't care what you do for a living and no matter. How will you do it? They're going to be times where you just doing some just because you like it or you're doing nothing because sometimes you need to do nothing right sometimes. Sometimes sitting on the couch and watching T._v. and flipping through the channels is perfectly fine. I it's okay levy on this thing but athletes are exclusive in there well. Why isn't he in the gym? Why isn't he in the batting cage? Why isn't he lifting weights because because he already did that today because he's already done his work? I don't care what line of work it is. It's not twenty four seven. You have downtime. You have hobbies you have interests and sometimes you just WanNa do nothing and there's also just a simple science science of it all that in order to probably build muscle you have to rest. I mean you can't just keep lifting weights every single day. Non Stop you need a break day because your cells need to generate so even if he was just thinking about just being an athlete twenty four seven the pure your science requires as down rest so let them live let him live that the other athletes live were will serial numbers coming up the the only time that was vicious uncalled for the only thing that I think you can really when that topic comes up when it's fair is when it's an Ezekiel Elliot situation is one. It's Zion Williamson situation and all of a sudden like e carrying extra weight buddy if that's going on then it's. What else are you doing with your time? If Ezekiel Elliott is showing up with his crop top on and he's got a belly underneath it then it's fair to say the hell. Are You doing in Vegas. And what the Hell you doing over here or there. You do not look like you're ready to play. Zion Williamson comes in huffing and puffing after nine minutes of a summer league and he's out of shape and he admits he's out of shape then it's okay hey look there's time to go do whatever it is you like to do and then there's time to get right and now's the time to get right but short SORTA levy on Bell's not heavy levy on bills not overweight the Lonzo ball during his music or whatever that these are things that are interests of them. It's not full-time jobs at something they do in their downtime the same thing everybody else does and there's or an escalator. Yes you forgot about yeah. It's national rat catchers day you ever hear this song U._B.. Forty writes in the kitchen the remix Donald's into kitchen <music> slender that man's name yeah you got to throw out the first pitch next Wednesday at Angel Stadium Yeah so who gets the mound. There's only to me. What are you talking about? who gets the mound? You're not gonNA pitch from the rubber. They don't let whatever they let us do. I'll do they let I pitched from the rubber big. They wouldn't let me pitch from the Rubber in Detroit. Maybe they will in Anaheim pitcher from the rubber awhile ago. It explains a lot Shane lowry. Is Your British Open champion. Jose did not watch it as little as I did. I didn't watch tiger wins. Watch Calorie win. This is how Shane also the basketball player Larry. I'm a golfer. <hes> love the play. I like to watch it on television but this was a perfect storm of Nah. I'm out what you know. The thing is is that I I am a fan of history and so I do think it's cool when someone from region wins like the it was in Ireland you know so I do think that's cool and he's a ginger. Is Larry Irishman like me. He's from the Republic of Ireland the tournament it was played in Northern Ireland which are really gnarly Marcel flat. Do they have a wallet stuff. No it's not the whole religious conflict they have their Protestants and the Catholics sill they settle that with like some Jameson in some potatoes and call the today. Don't think that's how it came yeah but yeah so congratulations to him. I'm also Tatyana one on Saturday night. Live four zero yeah he <hes> knocked down in with a right in the first first round and a dominated the first three or four rounds into thermo came back uses size and started hitting Paki outbid when the middle rounds and then close it was a split decision. Was it entertaining yes wasn't what is that a forty year old five seventy I still winning by Israel and his best day manny Pacquiao not five seven no height still. I'm still annoyed about that. Don't get me started short short when you yes it may rather made sure he was ringside. If not to maybe get ready for another fight but just at least have people talking about it was the forty year olds yeah prizren. Manny Pacquiao could be fighting for free at L._A.. Live at in ten minutes and I wanted to go watch it I would. He said Free Yeah do that no why because many pack yeah right but he's ancient if you're it's still good to know he's not if you just because he wanted to fight against some other guy that other guys bomb to know not I went to the Bronner Fight Agent Brunner in Vegas and PAC l.. Look good there. The problem is when you're this age and you know this Travis when you start getting Jim Boxing.

Consistency charts hundred plus player profile videos. Sometimes people message me on twitter and they say, my draft is tomorrow. Do I have time to really get up to speed with the ultimate draft kit and I? Think the answer is yes. Because not only do you have time to cram but there are tools for the active draft you have APP, and you can mark players as drafted. You have the printable cheats that you can bring and give you an advantage at the draft I was I was GONNA say. It's nice to get early where you can do the prep and look at all of the stuff. But the truth is if you're draft is about two minutes from now, that's when that's when you're gonNA, use it the most you know look at the tears look at the rankings, the cheat sheet that's my number one too. So this week and should be the biggest draft weekend of the year. Possible it's it is. What else is going on? You guys doing all right today. Yeah. Great. I holding up the WE'RE GONNA have his best. You can do in twenty twenty. Yeah. Hold on just hold on just hold on I went. We've been very busy a lot of these days. We have multiple shows. Like today we're on Sirius Xm later this afternoon. I haven't had a lot of time for chores around the house and it's been very dare I. Say warm. In, Arizona Dope that's fair. I walked around my backyard last night nude no no, no have closed on. But thank you for adding some. Flavor that story But I'm telling you like. At least a quarter of the plants in my yard arches dead. They gave up. They let go I have a tree in my front yard. That's just like I'm out of here I mean they're just crumbling into this is like the scene from as a terminator. All the blows through the. Dream Oh. Yeah. You mean it's over they gave up like we were supposed to get rain. We've had thirty four days so far this year with over one hundred and ten degrees How do you know stats about that? Google. Just googling. On my screen. Okay. I'm following I'm adding to your story. Calendar. Over here just plans that are have given up on any rain anymore. So but I thought it was like a little bit of A. Metaphor for Twenty Twenty S. we're just holding on the plans in the backyard are holding on on hold. We do have a season and how how many days away is the season now brooks think we're two weeks two weeks away. Let's Talk News. News and notes from around the League. All right. Just after the show release yesterday. We had the startling news the David Montgomery was out for the season and it was. It was rough. That's how it seemed a day after I forgave him for last year Yeah Reaper non-contact injury carted off. That was the initial thing said. And then it wasn't quite so true. He was able to limp off and then taken. Back on the card, and then it comes out that it was not his knee as it was first reported. mcgrane. He he hurt his groin and thankfully, it does not appear to be a super long term injury. He's not going to miss the season. In fact right now it's being reported two to four weeks. You ever heard your growing. I have not I have heard a groin. Is Unpleasant uncomfortable I. Think we have the audio from when that happened. There is. For weeks, he does have a chance of being available for the opener against the Lions we will. We thought about like what kind of analysis We WanNa bring something to the table here but we are still kind of. Learning what they're going to be doing depth chart. Wise. They don't have anything traditional behind David Montgomery in the running back room you have three Cohen and that is the instant kind of fantasy football reaction is. But but the truth is three Cohen is not been a very good runner. for He's a satellite back, he's the. Guy He's like like Darren sproles. Yeah. He'll get some carries but. You can't give to Cohen. Two hundred carries someone else has to step into that role and right now it seems like that's going to be Cordeiro Patterson who Was a wide receiver and is now converting to running back what he saw great success in the rushing game. Will they add a veteran? I. I would put the probability as they will add somebody. Now, what happens with David Montgomery in the draft we I'm citing that David Montgomery is GONNA be out for up to four weeks on top of that you have the Risk of re injury here if he comes back to quickly just throughout the season, it is something you're going to have to worry. So do you take the draft dip because he's not going to be won't be a fourth round pick anymore guy if you're not even having sure he's going to be ready for week one he's going to drop down to what what would you guess round Maybe. Even eight if he has a chance for being available at the opener, look today's show is values. I had a paragraph and a half. Written up on David Montgomery he was my value pit coming into the show he is not my value picked today. But when you have a player that has a high probability of two hundred and seventy five plus touches in an offense as a chance of being back in week one. And you can get that in the seventh eighth round. So you're you're you'RE GONNA buy injury dip I I would consider it. Yeah. I mean because he could be back in week one and two, hundred, seventy five carries this year and not as a price that you know. Who are you grabbing in that realm? Are you going to take carry on Johnson in your draft ahead of David, Montgomery Right now That's that's a good name to throw out there because obviously one is the presumed starter and one is the presumed. Fifty fifty guy in the backfield and and you know the thing with me is I have not been in on on David Montgomery. I just think his. Ceiling is basically a repeat of what we saw last year with an extra touchdown or to. That being said, if he does drop into the eighth ninth round where I'm not relying on him as a starter at all, I'm just grabbing a guy for my bench. I don't think that you know I don't think you're going to find a better bench guy for depth. That in that's hard aircraft. Here's a great question for you. Are you taking David Montgomery, if you drafted today over three Cohen. Oh. That is a good question. because. That realm of Kerryon. Johnson, there's James White. There's only Michelle there's Philip Lindsey. There's Tariq Cohen in that in that range. It because of where that is in in the range of roster construction, I would probably take David. Montgomery. I'm not relying I unless I'm going zero R B them going zero R B then I'm GonNa take the the pass catching higher upside I'm GonNa need this guy to start for my team this might be one of my first two running backs I'm selecting which I'd go to Rico and otherwise the way that I can struck my roster. I. Would I would be taking David, Montgomery in that range. All right. We'll keep you up to date on whether the bears out another body. They have Ryan all as well with his career of two carries for eight yards. On the depth chart. All Right Joe Mixon has not been at practice. The report this morning. was that due to migrants. Now Melvin Ingram on hard knocks has set a precedent for what we might start seeing, which is the holding not the whole down and you've had doubts about Dalvin cook coming to the surface owes delve book. You Know Adam Schefter came out and talked about our if he doesn't have a new contract I'd be worried about Delvin Cook Joe Mixing, another player that's been pining for a new contract. Some concerns about a hold in. But now this report of Migraines. So do you believe that I mean? Is this a situation that you're just monitoring? You can't really make any distinct call on whether he has migraines whether he is. Doing this as contract. Negotiation you know piece what you do need to be aware of is that he is in a contract year does want to have a bigger contract and there's at least some risk. Of. That boiling over I don't expect him to miss any games but you know when you're on the clock and you're drafting in that round in that range and you're looking at Joe Mixon or someone else you at least need to be aware of it when you make your decision and he's one of your my guys. There's a give you any pause when you're on the clock, you know we just had our family league right and you went back to back my guys with Josh. Jacobson. Joe Mixon. Is there any chance you would not have taken Joe Mixing if this was importantly to that was starting today with these. Conversation pieces. Until the MIGRAINE. report from NFL never came through this morning it terrified me like the fires of more door. Hey I mean, it's it's not something you want to hear I was GonNa ask you the question do you think he will consider you know Me In this whole equation. The way I went out on a limb for Joe Mixon. Do you think that I will be part of the bridge to a new contract thoughts I from Cincinnati? We weren't going to do it and we heard the confidence of Mike Guy Thing and I'm not taking a back again. So yeah, I think you I think you are the glue in this situation here Andy. So you you should give confidence to draft him. It's not a good. Day For me. They've already on and argue it's a really good report, Dave? Just a matter of. Tomato situation strongpoint I don't think Joe Mixon is GonNa Miss Games yeah Oh that's good. Mike. Thank you. seahawks head coach Pete Carroll. said he he had seen. Adam gays talking about Frank Gore and he said I can I can do that. Pete Carroll says Carlos Hyde will quote. Be a big factor for us. Yes. Pete Carroll talk about. His players before and here's what they are during credible. They are in great shape there ahead of schedule, they're going to be a giant piece of every play. Yeah. Do ahead of schedule. So that's a comet in favor of Chris Carson, but then Carlos Hyde in a big factor F- being a big factor for us is against Chris Carson. So do they cancel now? All Pete Carroll comments cancel each other out all of them yes you there's certain coaches you just here's here's actual truth win Pete. Carroll says, something negative about a player that's when the alarm you that's when you go. Okay. Problem Different Angle though two hundred sixty one opportunities for callers hide last year. Here's the thing though it a big opportunity to me is he will be on the field. He Carlos is going to get touches because Rashaad penny was a factor as well. Now, for fantasy purposes, Carlos is going to have. A ten opportunities a week, which is more thorn in the butt cheeks if your rostering. Chris. Carson and not so much a you can play Carlos Hyde unless he happens to get the ten carries for forty yards and the touchdown, and then so I'm not drafting Carlos side but he is. He's the backup he he is the the backup if you are trying to you know. If, you want lock up the entire Seattle Backfield I don't just but maybe someone out there does is it's going to be Carlos I this. This to me is more of a indictment of Rashad Penny. Is is not ready to go and we don't know when he's going to be ready to go. We. Don't know if we considered it, we need a thorn in the buttocks episode. Okay Yeah. Because there are I mean there are a number of play that exists only bring you pain. Yeah. They're not going to provide anything good for your fantasy, but they're going to ruin I mean. Rose in the backyard, the void does the Thorn Thornton the budget. Yeah you don't want that. You're backed into a Rose Garden Hall. Back. Growing. This show gone, great? Let's compound that. Jordan love has quote yet to provide even a glimpse of why the packers traded up to him. That is the camp report from the Athletics Mashed Neiderman. Now here's the thing quarterback, your AC-, issues quarterbacks quote was actually from Aaron Rodgers. Yeah That'd be great. quarterbacks take along. Hey printed you know to to develop in certain situations and the glimpse for why they drafted him could be. You know. Down the road a year or two down the road. But why they traded up to draft a guy no one was clamoring for. makes. Not I guess I could have saved that piece of news for once we start the bus segment maybe. Maybe we'll give it a year to. This report. and. Rodgers not being threatened by Jordan loves loves the progress of all right. That is it for news and notes unless Brooks has something for US Brooke St. Avenue Anything Breaking. nope. This is the time of year you got to pay attention to that even ever recording. So we'll we've got a breaking news trump. We're we're we're equipped. All right.

I'm GONNA bring those names up again see if you are still on board and then we'll bring you a new name today Mike back in the middle of June you said Stefan Dick's you think he could be a bust fantasy football players are you still on board at that take? I am still on board with the the take Stefan digs is going to be he will still be hot and cold I think evil even more extreme with Josh Allen instead kirk cousins the. The where he's being drafted has altered me me saying you know just banging the table saying I've never drafting Stefan digs but he is a guy that years I as much as I love Stefan digs I don't want to draft him on my fantasy team this year. All right Jason. You know part of this show, we were staying water. Yeah. Jason and we don't just bring you the analytical. We bring you the holistic view. You said Austin actor in middle of June was a now is that awesome Ecuador or Austin excellent I don't. I don't remember why. Excellent. Superlative. But are you still on board with Ecuador being potential bust for fantasy football players? So. When I said that he was being drafted as a running back one in June. He was near that you know early second round pick he's dropped quite mike or by other people know by ADP but he's he's dropped quite a bit and now he's According to what I'm looking at the twenty four, th playoff, the board he's at that two three turn and I have a hard time to life I would not label him a bust, their I do my point in that was that I think you're going to see a major downturn in his receptions. That's where his real fantasy value came from I stick to that. But if he's being drafted outside the top twelve running backs, he should he should return on that. So he in essence should not avoid P. River because that provided him with the volume in the passing Oh. Yeah. If you're a pass catching running back, that's a delightful trunks. We will talk about that later I brought up Tyler Boyd at the time in June I have no different feelings about Tyler Boyd. there's just a lot of pass catching options. They're aged green mercifully back at practice t higgins showing out, you've got John Ross involved tie the very reliable I just don't get excited about him in drafts I haven't really. I. Know I haven't taken him anywhere so. This kind of. May on tyler boy thinks reliable number two receiver. The on your team like. Number two on an NFL team. Yeah. The reality is he had so many targets last year and was okay I mean I if that's his. If. He's just okay when you have that level of volume and now the volume goes away. He's not someone I'm excited to have I wouldn't imagine drafting. All right I'm GonNa let Jason Kickoff. Our bust picks on today's show because his is a perfect transition from the news there. There has been a lot of talk in jets camp. So I'll let you have the floor. All right. My Bus candidate for twenty twenty is levy on bell and last year he was running back seventeen which was. In and of itself, a bust from where he was being drafted but nowhere to go. But up, right. Lateral. I think. I'd go down just nowhere to go. I think we have a number two problem of number two but here's the thing I'm not just talking about Mr be whole Adam Gates. I'm talking about the number two running back on the team is a problem. Last year allow Powell path was the number two running back in carries he had fifty nine total carries on the season. But wait pal had nineteen carries week fourteen when Levy mbelle wasn't there. So when love EON bell was out, there were forty total carries on the season that went to the backup. Love got everything. You know outside of Christian McCaffrey Levy on bell was pretty much the next most used guy. And if you remember on our recent, my guys episode, which if you haven't listened to please go back, it was excellent. I talked about how that's what the people are saying that is because the people are smart. The people was excellent. It was it was an awesome show it's still is. But you'll remember when I was talking about as well. In 2017, an awesome Kenyan drake was on pace for over fifteen hundred yards in the final nine games, and then Adam Geese brought in a thirty five year old old school type of running back, Frank Gore and he gave him a hundred and fifty six carries name might think well, yeah. One hundred six carries in twenty eighteen. To leave. That you weren't wrong about his age at the time. I know right you said that in the very first thing I did was did Jason Right Down Frank Gore's current H. that's what I thought. You know thirty seven now Thirty Five Year Old Frank Warren gave one, hundred, fifty, six carries now you say, well, that's old school frank or he's he's past his prime last I don't know if you know this, he had ten more he had one hundred and sixty six carries last season. What is infinite but the thing is he's eternal he is all he. I Adam Gates realizes now that freight Gore's passes prime. He's old he's busted. Well, wait. What's that? We have audio from literally yesterday this is let's hear what Adam Gates had to say yesterday on Frank Gore looks the same as you did twelve years ago. It's I can't explain. It's unbelievable how I watch him I'm Flash Makati doesn't. Looks the same. I I don't know how. Does, doesn't make sense. Frank has been one that refuses to listen to what anybody else says. And he goes out there is A. Old School. Footballer. And he looks good is burst. Looks Good. Decision is Never GonNa change is just that's it's GonNa be like that when he's sixty. And? Frank is frank special under the reason why he is they're all time. That's not a guy you bring. You already heard that clip and I hit me fresh today I heard that yesterday it it's. He's just as insane today. He's not getting forty carries like Blau Powell got the course of the season when love bells out there and the narrative is well if I if love. Bell. Has. Enough workload just volume. He gets a thousand on the ground five hundred through the air. He's he's going to be a top fifteen back. There's just no other way but I mean, he didn't do it last year. He didn't even have eight hundred rushing yards last year you. To carry. So I just think love bell is not someone I want on my roster but I want to make this distinct point because if you look at where he's being drafted right now, he is actually being drafted after I have him ranked in my running back ranks I have him ranked I think running back eighteen or nineteen right now he's being drafted is like the runningback twenty one so you say, well, how? Could that be a bust? Here's how that could be a bus for fantasy right now he is being sandwiched in between to my guys in the draft you can grab. Cooper, Cup and Tyler Lockett Right. Where Levy on bells going if levy on bell is the running back twenty and beats adp he is not going to really help your team the way you need him to So to me, I can't imagine taking love. Here. I am concerned. The, the argument I will say this argument for the bells. Improved efficiency improved offensive line improved pass catching. It's and the touchdown totals other than Leonard Fournette he was the most anomalous in terms of opportunities. Two touchdowns. Those things can fill in the gap to maybe get back to last year better. I'm concerned because Levian bells about this. I'm I'm not concerned about a be holes press conference. First, time, ever. Never said that before I'm concerned about. and the story for Frank. Gore. Last year was he actually started the year he had he had three finishes inside the top twenty four in to start the year with. High volume in Buffalo. He basically disappeared over the back half of the year, which is something that. We've seen happen time and time and time and time again with running backs, you fade in the second half that can happen to but love bells posting about this. You have this tension. There's ribbon of tension in jets camp for two years. I didn't really want him here. That's what Adam gays began. This whole journey pay more money than anybody. I didn't really want him here. then. Give 'em all this work and he's not that good. Then it's all were just give a little rest and then love bells coming out yesterday and saying boy I'm I'm twiddling thumbs I. Don't really know what I'm going to be doing I don't know I'm on the sideline I'm used to room in you know. Did he say I'm. Through and he used emojis to show like the running couple of. SMOKE COMING BEHIND HIM Here's what. I'm used to the room room will not happy. He'll get the work as others now. Him Down I mean I was an advocate for him two weeks ago we are paying attention to camp he's been moved down in my rankings he's not in my top ten not in my top twelve. I still think like I. said I made arguments at the beginning I think there's an opportunity but I don't blame you one bit for putting him. In as your bust. All right. I didn't like that quote I'm going to jump in here and this is dicey. This is dangerous. and. I'll. I'll get it off my chest. Look my fantasy bust keyword being fantasy. It's wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals. De'andre Hopkins Oh. Okay. Let me start. Let me start here. He is elite. He's. Big You the that's that's is how I feel. Let me cover my shirt. This is how I feel having to bear my soul to the fantasy community. Put myself out there because this is not this is not an easy man to take a fantasy standing gets he is elite. He is one of the top three wide receivers in the NFL. He's still gonNa be good for fantasy. And he's on my favorite team. He's being drafted as the fifth overall wide receiver off the board. That's the problem for Hopkins over the last five years top five wide receivers have averaged a hundred and fifty six targets. That's the that's the volume on average that you have to get. Now, some guys don't do that because you they have like a huge touchdown year. Last year Hopkins had one hundred and fifty targets. He barely snuck into the top five. Games played last year with the Shawn Watson the quarterback who he's played with for years and years. Now, he was pulling in thirty one percent of the targets while he was on the field that was the second highest number behind only Michael Thomas last year on the Arizona Cardinals. Christian Kirk had the highest target's share when he was on the field. Christian Kirk came in at twenty four percents of the targets that as a very large gap to go from the number one guy getting twenty four percent all the way up to thirty one percent through the first five weeks. Arizona was running the actual air rate system that cliff Kingsbury wants to run before the personnel kind of crapped out and cliff realized he couldn't do that. But for through the first five weeks over fifty percent of the plays, four different wide receivers were on the field. Now, if you want some context for how insane that number is. Through that same time period, Washington was second in using four wide receivers on the on the field. The same time eleven percents people don't use this. This was this is why people are so excited for cliff bringing in the air rates system. What's going to do? How will it work out in the NFL? An elite wide receivers we've them change teams a few times, and it's just been such a poor hit rate for people going all in on fantasy on someone changing team. The office just spreads the ball out too much for me to to truly believe in project that Hopkins will be in that one hundred and fifty six target clinging drake Larry Fitzgerald Christian Kirk Dan Arnold Andy Isabella Keen Butler keyshawn Johnson right and I mean I don't WanNa get into a whole bunch of math but you can break down the numbers of. Seventy percent of the targets went too wide receivers for Arizona, which is by far the most in the league. But still when you break down the targets and you try to give the Andre Hopkins, the one, hundred, fifty, five, four, hundred, fifty, six targets. It leaves. Absolutely nothing for Larry and Christopher Kirk, who are going to get targeted can ask you a question. Yes. Because I feel like you know sometimes you know people know were from Arizona they. Know. Cardinal. Fans. Sometimes we get accused for, Oh, you're calling for the breakout. Kyle is going to be good. That's because your home found. I've like we've been in a different bubble with the de'andre Hopkins draft price. It's been in the like I I don't even. We haven't been anywhere where were drafting him in that what is even five range? But when you make this argument, how do you see it playing out because he's an elite hall of Fame Caliber Wide Receiver? Do you see it playing out in terms of. Purely consistency issues in Arizona where hobbies I I don't think any of US would deny gonNA have monstrous gain. Yeah. That's what I'm saying I've starting this argument with he is elite. He's GonNa be great for fantasy but if you're drafting him as the wide receiver five, I, don't think you're going to. I don't think you're going to get the the the level of consistency that you want from the wide receiver five I. Don't think you're going to get the final fantasy finish that you want. When you're drafting a guy is the wide receiver five he should. I have him outside of my top ten in my projections, but that's like by. Just a small margin of points I expect him to be a wide receiver one. But when you draft the guy wide receiver five and you're in the ends up in the ten to twelve range, it's disappointing. I have him as my wide receiver five, my projection you've been in that camp I think the pace of play of so much faster for Arizona and the total volume won't need to hit thirty percent of target market share in order to have targets like he's seeing back in Houston, they didn't throw the ball as much as Arizona does. So I actually do think he has a good season, but I still wouldn't draft him at five because when I'm in those first two rounds and I'm looking at I, mean I've I've said this before in those rounds, I am risk adverse. Because everybody's great everybody's ceiling in the first two rounds down, maybe they could be the number one at their position. Hopkins maybe he could. But he changing teams all the variables that are here say that there's a larger percentage chance that I'm wrong on my projection than I liked to have when I take a look invest that kind of got. Yeah, he may have more of like from a impact to an offense. He may be number one in football on moving Arizona and the impact he has on that offense, but that might not translate fantasy. You talk about risk aversion, my bus pick. Juju Smith Schuster has been drafted ahead a DJ more. He's being drafted ahead AJ brownies being drafted ahead of Cooper copies being drafted Calvin Ridley. The metaphor that I have in my mind. For Juju Smith Schuster. You know how? When they release a new television show, they like to have it be right around the biggest hit on the network at the primetime. Slot. Yeah Yeah. So they can pick up. You'd like right afterwards right after friends that was the magic slot looked at primetime. Primetime show was Antonio Brown that debut. So was Juju Smith Schuster. Right after man had a great first season. I two seasons yeah. I to even better. Second season but you have now removed that that that benefit of the doubt that and he's still riding the coattails of that number one hit. and. The price that you're paying and fantasy drafts is a result of still thinking about that sophomore season that he had, and then a tendency for us to want to forgive throw away. Last season in its entirety. It's hard not to. Trash and you the things you do with the trash you throw it away. Yeah. The. Types of targets that they were getting in Pittsburgh from the variety of duck hodges and Mason Rudolph. They weren't very good targets, but it's twenty twenty guys. We have the technology to look at. I don't think I said that words very. Solid. We've got it. We can go look and see. Was He really bad on catchable targets last year and the answer is, yes he was really bad. He was fifty eight than football in terms of catch rate on actual catchable targets win his own teammate Deontay Johnson was sixteenth in football at the exact same yards per target. These were the same types of targets and Juju was actually worse. He was act. He actually took a step back I don't think you're going to get. What you've got in that sophomore year ever again and one thing that I haven't brought up very much or we haven't talked about in the context of Juju is. This is a contract season. For Juju Smith Schuster. There was preseason discussion already about the seems not going to extend Juju. They. Go Out. What do they do? We say pay attention to what the team does go get chased Klay Pool in the drought. The argument for Juju as well. Maybe that volume from AB years goes down but maybe the touchdowns come up. Chase Klay polls kind of a big guy. They brought in Eric Brown a red zone monster variables around big been. Yes. He may be back. He may be the same Big Ben maybe he's not maybe he is with the volume isn't there because this defense is so exceptional they still have deontay Johnson and James Washington, and other weapons in this offense. So again, all busts are in the context of what it costs you in the draft to acquire the player. I am always shocked at where Juju is going I have no other explanation for it. Then it is riding the coattails of these great season's gone by throwing out last year I'm not willing to do it. I WANT AJ WANT AJ Brown I want Dj more I want Cooper Cup I want Calvin Ridley. So. I'm not going to take to do at in the third round. Yeah it's. It's upsetting because I do believe he is all segment is upsetting why do we? Buster So said I do you is exceptionally talented and while there's been reports out of Camp I, was gonna say that's one thing ever mentioned the that you know he had an exceptional camp last year and has disappeared this year. He's nowhere to be found maybe then we get through reverse of Dune seas well. Let me ask you. said that the key to a great season as a bad camp is that what I heard for? I I will say the way I read into that report this morning of from the athletic saying you know it's Hard to find his reps are limited I think they're trying to keep their number one wide receiver from being hurt and do you think they re him though because the money that Juju will want being the age that? It doesn't seem compatible with the steelers like historical philosophy on signing players I, mean to some beat. Reports from beat some beats. I've listened to some beat reporters talk about how they think that there is a a decent chance that they end up franchise tagging Juju okay. Yeah. I. Would say the IT comes down to do a good year. Does, he have a good and I fully believe that Juju Smith Schuster can and just a reminder to to last year on top of the quarterback problems. Juju did have. He hurt his foot an injury. It's always funny to say, well, Guy had a toe injury but if you've ever had a toe injury and then tried to run, when did he get the Toe Injury Mike Week one that is correct it. So he was hurt right away then he had. The knee sprain and the concussion towards the end of the year it was just. That's what I'm saying it was a trash year for everyone in Pittsburgh and you're just you're crumpling it up. I'm forgetting that it ever happened and I'm moving forward. All right. I have two final questions on this for you. Andy last year in the sleeper bowl league with do did we draft Juju in the first round? To trawl Juju. Yes they answer I'm sorry I missed because of all the extra words. Did we draft him in the first round? Yes, and did we win the championship? Yes. Oh, well I don't ally. Is the. So you heard it here first bad camp first round pick. That's what I've got from Jason. There's a reason we didn't just do bus on this show. We don't want to bring in all down to a screeching halt. We WanNa bring you something. A little bit more value a little bit more upbeat. Values. Are, early, values show I'll make it quick back in June Mike you said to Sean Jackson is he still a value to you? One hundred percent Jason You said Robert Woods. Is he still a value to you on one hundred percent he's he was almost going to be my value for this show. Okay. He's all right. You want to know who's going to be value next year Robert, woods, I said Ronald Jones back in June I completely believe Ronald Jones the value maybe even more so now today we're bringing you one more value pick each. I'll just get mine out of the way here. Yep. He's being drafted as the running back fifty six. Donnie. So close late thirteenth round. And it's Naim Hines Yeah of the Indianapolis Colts you can go back. You can play my audio clips on the breakout show which I think was what Monday when he talked about the value of Philip rivers is your quarterback. If you were a running back and catch the football if you're even capable, you're going to get it doesn't matter if you're capable the ball is coming your way as a running back because when it's almost like a yeah and then it's out of his hands toward the running back. The most check down completions in the NFL since twenty seventeen. Number One Philip Rivers hundred twenty four check down completion since twenty seventeen, that is what he likes to do. He likes to take what the defense gives you most often the defense is going to give you some opportunities underneath. And we have all the debates and the merits of visa going to be Marlon Mac for the first part of the is going to be Jonathan Taylor, these guys are to split some carries. Look regardless of who gets the first and second down work. There's going to be a ton of Naim Heinz I. Truly believe it he graded out as one of the better most efficient pass blockers at the running back position kind of important when you're a third down back, kind of important when you have Philip rivers and his two feet in the cement. And He's. He's great. He's a speed demon. He's ninety, nine, th percentile four, three, eight given the ball in some say. That best that. Philip rivers mold we just talked about awesome Mesler. And all the camp reports on name Hines is that he is not just a little bit part of the he's essential. He's essential to this team MARLA MAC pass catching. Wise. He's never done it Jonathan Taylor at a minimum inexperienced in the NFL and that type of a role for I. Think you're going to have I just the dynamic. Weapon in the Backfield and I name hines throughout the season high volume situation signal and bloom came out and he tweeted a quote that came from the athletic those watching colts camp. So there's been two straight weeks colts camp hinds has been everywhere. He said he's never seen hines more active in this offense. Maybe talk of him having seventy five catches isn't that insane? That's the Austin resuppy. So an echo was like a six round pick last year where we kind of said, okay this could be a big year. Mike was Super in on him credit to Mike sought from the from the. Outset and hines is not gonNA have a lot of first and second down work. Ecuador had that. To open the year. You don't expect that kind of a year but rb fifty six, a free player at the back of your draft. Full Pr League he's he's a really safe late guy that you can just watch the screen and get to go point. Yeah. So I I really like him I think he's a great value draft he's somebody I'm going to be trying to pick up. Here's a player I have been getting often draft I find you know when it when it comes to the Robert, woods types this is someone who's just undervalued and Mike just brought him up on fantasy time machine. We should talk about some more though, but the point is you brought him up as a Calvin Ridley. Possible breakout I'm saying that without that breakout happening, Michael Gallup is still a value. He is a value for where he is being drafted right now he's the wide receiver thirty one and last year he was wide receiver twenty, two in fourteen games. So I have a game to play. I. Game. Gentlemen who had more fantasy points per game, Michael, Gallup or second year breakout Calvin Ridley. Michael Gallup. Yeah. That is correct. Okay. On other. All Don with this game is this is this really a game or is this just your highlighting Michael Gallup had more points than all of these players that you're going to bring up we're GONNA find out. That's the game. who had more fantasy points as always wins on a per game basis last year Michael Gallup or second year breakout wide receiver Portland Sutton. Oh. Well, let's go with Michael Gallup yeah that is correct. All right. Let's get a little harder now how about Michael Gallup versus DJ? who had more fantasy points per game last year Michael. Gala, that is correct and the final one DJ more superstar wide receiver to break out. Also Miss Games who had more fantasy points per game Dj. More Michael Gallup it's Michael. Gallup? Before you don't feel good about myself when I also. because. Dj More technically played in his final game where he got knocked down on the first play. But my point dirty because I brought this up before my gallbladder three touchdown week seventeen didn't matter for. Seventeen out take weeks every eight touchdowns on the year through through week sixteen he was wide receiver thirty and that was while missing two games. He's being drafted after that. My point is he's value and the reason he's value is CD. Lamb. CD LLAMAS COMING IN and everybody's worried that the Gallup's not going to be able to repeat the truth is. CD Lamb could make this offense better and be a good thing for Michael Gallup. Randall COBB. Left and he had eighty-three targets as a starter. Now, CD lamb comes into that role. Here are some rookies who had around eighty-three targets. tyree kills rookie year eighty, three targets, DJ Moore's rookie or eighty two targets AJ Brown last year superstar. Targets Juju. Smith Schuster great rookie year seventy, nine targets, Allen, Robinson eighty-one or Dez Bryant. The man he's kind of wearing the number I've had seventy three targets CD LAMBS GONNA come in and have about the same targets that left from the Randall Cobb. Michael. Gallup. Last year was the wide receiver twenty two in fourteen games and he's being drafted where a I I take him almost every time on. The clock where where he's fallen to I'm not I'm never reaching for Gallup. I'm trying to say that he's a guaranteed top fifteen wide receiver but this is about where can you get value and the last point I wanNA make before Andy's grimacing faces get in here is this when I was thinking about what type of player I wanNA value and fantasy football Julian Ataman is a value. Yes added. Way Way later then he will finish, but the thing is is he's not gonNa Finish as good as he did last year and he doesn't have this. He doesn't have this ability or some some thing that could happen on the field that will take him to the next level whereas Michael Gallup what I'm talking about as as just a gentle value he's GonNa Return More than you draft him on. Until value I like like he's. Just. Not a breakout. You see it's a, it's A. Harsh, a gentle badge, not an aggressive. Now, slight value. You're going to get a quality wide receiver above thirty one above thirty one but that is his four and he has ways to break. He's coming into his third year the touch. Four touchdowns are the most significant one. Yeah touchdowns. TOUCHDOWNS and sixteen weeks. It's injured again I mean, there's there are so many ways where he could be much better than a gentle value. Okay and you'd have as a gentle value. Though, are you willing to put Michael Galvin Beer lineup instantaneously? Is he your wide receiver to with no discomfort? I will start him week one as my wide receiver to with zero discomfort. All right and then because because it's gentle right I mean yes. Exactly. Usually things are gentle. There's no there's a lot of comfort. Yeah. Now you said weeks one through sixteen he was the wide receiver thirty last year he's being drafted at thirty one missing two games. Yes. Okay. All right. I'm GONNA bring up a quarterback here. I think he is a tremendous value quarterback at the end of drafts. Let's say you are playing the late round quarterback game. And other guys just like I was going to target Cam. Newton was gonNA target these other players and then he seems like your plan has has gone to pieces just left in shambles fear not my friends because Jared Goff the quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams he is still there he is a value he is being drafted as the nineteenth quarterback off the board. His first two years with McVeigh he averaged this is averages over a sixty three percent completion passer. Forty two, hundred yards, thirty touchdowns, and he averaged those touchdowns with a five point eight touchdown. Jerry Jerry girth announcing the a five point eight touchdown percent, which is a completely rip. It's repeatable for Sean mcvay system and Jared Goff. Last year, he still had the yards forty, six, hundred yards. You know one of the they're throwing the ball an absolute ton but you saw the touchdown rate drop from that average of five point eight percent down to three and a half percent. He. Only through twenty two touchdowns and that was the difference between Jared Goff being just outside of the qb one rains and the difference between him being a weekly starter that you are very happy about if you give him simply the league average. Of throwing a touchdown on every four and a half percent of your attempts. That puts them at twenty eight touchdowns. That would've been the QB six on the year. So Dan. So close jared Goff was. Just him playing everage with with the volume, the yards. And the touchdown call just average he would've jumped up to the cube six. Had he been able to sustain his five point eight percent? He would have jumped all the way up to the QB. Now I don't think he really could have done that the reason for the huge volume increase was because the efficiencies did go down my point is simply you make jared goff average again and he's easily in the top ten look. At the weapons that are being drafted for Jared Gov he is too wide receivers being drafted in the top twenty. He has a tight end being drafted in the top ten km makers is just outside the top twenty four at the running back position probably by next week or so can makers is going to slip inside there? Why would you not want the the quarterback who has has makers is going to slip and slide there. Who Doesn't love a good slip and slide. The Jared Goff is being completely overlooked because he he burned me last year he burned games are really bad bad games were really turn the ball over twenty six times last year. Yes and but the the the actual output changing him from what he was last year to being right back in the range of of a weekly starter is very small. Yeah. The touchdowns are. A huge deal here because if you think about how much has been said about the outlandish touchdown number, the Todd Gurley had last year the Rams had won rushing touchdowns last year right right now without dog group that's not happening. That's part of why Jared Goff only had twenty two passing touchdowns you can't pass a touchdown on the drive that it's rushed in and I. Just a fact and so I if if some of that regresses to the mean, you're going to have more more touch on opportunity the the one downside was that I did watch hard knocks and I saw how now granted it was Aaron. Donald. But my goodness he was just like sack sack is firing back. That was pretty funny. You know I don't know. If maybe some of the interception 'cause interceptions went up last year to sixteen I. Don't know if some of that was he gets a little shell shocked from taking early in the game that concerned the pressure and he gets rid of the ball to sue his sax went down last year from the year before even though it's shock but the interceptions went up. Still. Still double digit fumbles did you see they got in? Did. you see that they gave Aaron Donald a veteran day off and did you see? Well, he's still got a few because you well, McVeigh set about it. No, it wasn't. I don't think it was to give. Aaron Donald the up he was giving. Some light a break. He's like we gotta let off. It's of line have a couple of good days comparing anybody else to Hawk over Aaron Donald. Is Unfair. That dude is he is. Aaronow next Taylor he's a bad man. It's just Aaron no body fat at all like I don't know how you can way what he weighs and have nobody fab but he pulled off. All right. That is it for values WANNA.

Mike Wright of the Fantasy Footballers Talks Le'Veon Bell, Rookies and More (05/05 Fantasy Football Podcast)

"This is fantasy football today from CBS. Sports got email us at fantasy football. Ed CBS. I DOT COM. It's time to dominate your fantasy league. Cheney was with this fantasy football today podcast they will talk about Mile Sanders a little bit too high builders rankings about some really old running backs is frank. Or we're going to ruin levy on Belvedere or GONNA move beyond this year. Welcome to the show. I'm Adam with Jamie and heath we got a special guest. Mike right in a fantasy. Footballers is here. Check them out at fantasy. Football dot com of course fantasy. Football is podcast which is awesome on twitter. He's at F- F Hitman and welcome to the show Mike Walker and fantasy football today man. This is fantastic. This like this is really a treat for for me to be here. I've met most of you guys in person and have told you each individually that the the you guys at. Cbs really set a standard. I in in my opinion for podcasting. Where a huge part of of my life and the way we ended up shaping the Fancy footballer so thank You Again. This really really is awesome for me to be on the show with you guys. Have you met Heath in person? Yes Oh wow. How'd that go heath? Is that you know. We met several times over the course of like two or three span and several of those came around Ping Pong table And there were probably more meetings than I recall there enough by the way you can. Listen to the footballers podcast throughout the offseason. Get their alternate draft Kit Dynasty and rookie rankings. All at fantasy footballers DOT COM so. Yeah before we get into a Mike. How's everything going? How's Quarantine? How's the salvation would survive in the the honestly the really the only hard part for this is is the kids and the home schooling. I am a homebody. I'm happy to stay. You're the only thing that I miss going out for is food which I because still get the old door dash and post made so I'm not missing a ton. Of course besides going into the office and being with the guy is in that comraderie but other than that. I'm hanging in there like I got a text message from Adam. Say Adam has a little boy and he's expecting a second and I have three young children young boys And he goes. I don't know how the hell you're doing. I can't I just I don't get it. I don't understand how you guys are doing this. One Kid is just wearing me out completely by the way Jamie. Thank you for the for the announcement there. That was supposed to be a secret. But that's fine. We'll let the audience. I have told the audience. You know that you have now. I have another one way very sued. Congratulations in the way you do. It is you. Just try and make it to the nighttime so that you can get some semblance of sleep but yeah I've I've got three kids as well and Like I said that's the hardest part. I don't have to worry about the home schooling yet. That would make things even more challenging. All right let's talk about mile sanders our email the day fantasy football at CBS. Dot Com comes from Travis. And when he sent this in but last week we were debating mile sanders versus developed a atoms in the first round of a PR draft. Thank you Mike Thank you. I wish everybody could see Mike Space. Thank you that was a completely involuntary reaction to. I didn't know my face was doing something you like. Like the face of somebody that just walked past somebody forwarded yes pretty good reaction but yeah I pretty High Mile Saito. Some of US would take him seventh overall. But here's the deal. I feel like the Mile Sanders hype. Train is getting a little out of hand. While he was on his late season tear. He played the dolphins redskins giants twice. And the cowboys not real world leaders on defense not to mention the health of their wide receivers and Corey. Clement was hurt as well. So the catches feel far from certain. I just think he's much more of a gamble that you guys are making him out to be at this point. He was firmly behind Jordan Howard until his shoulder had the nervous. You anyway just wanted to hear your thoughts on this all right well Mike sorry for farting so when you think about good what do you think about a Mile Sanders? When would you take him? Man I I feel like I'd be okay taking him as of right now. Maybe the third will take the gamble on him. He is such a confusing player. The third round or the third overall pick the third overall pick. Yes yes sure. Let's let's just get out of control with the hype. He's such a confusing player. Not Because of his talent he. He's a he's an amazingly talented player His his yards per reception was absolutely insane like last year. There was only three running backs ahead forty or more targets and had yards per reception over ten miles sanders neck learned David Johnson. The only three guys that do that so smashing efficiency through the air. But what we've seen from Peterson in the eagles. Like that's that's what we have to go off of and it's which story are you going to buy into for Miles Sanders? Are you going to buy into the talents of Sanders? The fact that he was a second round pick and Peterson had not done that yet. And then the end of season that that monstrous workload where he became an absolute league winner. If you scoop them up in the second half or did you. Do you buy in two years and years and years of Peterson. Three sometimes four running backs we just. We don't have. We don't have proof except for the second half of last year. Where where Doug Peterson was forced into it as hand was forced and it would but our top of that like if you remember at the beginning of the year Mile Sanders actually had the job like he just. He was really really inefficient. And then Jordan Howard took the job from miles sanders so they did want miles to be that guy the beginning of the year so I'm trying to temper expectations. I do have him ranked as a top twelve running back and finish finishing up all my statistical projections. And he's he's sitting there right now but it's it is an inner battle for me to decide which side of that narrative. I'm really going to buy into over the off. Season Jamie Heath. So I I know you guys aren't as High Mile. Sanders is Dave and I are but do you think he's a first round pick. No I think he's. He's in the conversation if it's just a heavy heavy first round on running backs that's kind of the way I come out on it but I would much rather get him in round two. I think the one thing that Mike said is the Doug Peterson narrative. He's tried to use a guy. The Jay Ajayi Trade. The Josh Adam Stretch What we saw last year from Sanders He's ever had a guy sure so. I think that he's GONNA use Boston. Scott but I think that's kind of the positive that we're looking at mouth sanders now is they. Added nothing if you told me. Corey comment is the threat. Then I'm excited beyond belief about Mile Sanders if they still go out and maybe signed him on the freemen if they make a trade. If we've see LaSalle McCoy and says he wants to finish his career there as old and decrepit AC- as compared to the guys. We're GONNA talk about as well If they bring in somebody else then that then that makes it a little bit more of A. Oh no here we go again but I think that what sanders showed last year. What he's looking at it from a competition standpoint that there's reason to be excited about it but I think we have driven the train a little bit too far off track expe- king of Farts make everyone WanNa leave their like. Jamie mentioned devante Freeman. But there's still like four of those guys colonel. Their moral or any of those guys are right and so I don't if you told me we were. At opening week and it was depth chart was Mile Sanders Boston. Scott and Corey Clement. Was number three. I would feel like I might take sanders in the first half of the second round. I just I can't take him over Nick Job. I can't take him was his second. Half better than Kenyan Drake's yes wasn't for a longer stretch. I mean the second half wasn't your little six game stretch where we take out the games that we don't like no we take out one we got we. We take out week seventeen because he left with an injury but other than that it was it was after the Jordan Howard Injury. I think I think was better than mile centers that six games or eight games. You look at six games mile. Sanders was the number three running back in but not counting the last game because he left with an injury. You want me to that game. Heath so Kenyan drake second half was better than Mile Sanders and we've seen it from him before and he doesn't have any competition either. So I would like the best that I could get to would be mile. Sanders is my number ten running back and that doesn't make you a first round pick. There's probably four to five wide receivers go in the first round. I want you to tell me that that I should. I admit that I should not include week. Seventeen and we can move onto the next topic. No if you're trying to make the point that mile standard is worth the seven overall. Pick you better not include week seventeen. That'd be ridiculous I would. I left with an injury. All right you gotTa pick like this seven best games of the season and give me a sixteen game pays all right let's let's move on so we're streaming. We're recording this on Tuesday with Mike Cinco two mile so I hope that door ashes is going to be delivering Mexican food to Mike Tonight. But you're going to hear this on Wednesday so with that being said we're streaming tonight. Wednesday may sixth at seven PM. Join US eastern join us for a live mock draft that's on twitch twitch dot com slash F F today follow us and you'll see our stream on twitch twitch dot com slash F F. Today and next week is fantasy football yesterday five episodes on the podcast on. Cbs Sports HQ. We're going back in time. We're looking at things like the biggest one. Hit wonders like Justin poore set the biggest busts of all time like Monty ball and the greatest fantasy teams of all time. We're doing a draft for that as we speak. So that's GonNa be fun kind of look back a little bit obviously catch up on everything that's going on in the current world fantasy like these two news items the jets are signing Frank Gore to a one year deal they also drafted Michael p Ryan in the fourth round and marshawn Lynch has been discussing return to Seattle. So I'm going to start with Syracus. I feel like he's been higher on on Levy on bell but does this change things for you with them. Bringing in frank were it should. I'm going to be stubborn. Just I say no. I don't want to change my mind because this shouldn't change anything but the last time we saw Frank Gore and Adam Gay from the same city Gore was getting more carries than Kenyan drake. So I I have to acknowledge this. Probably changes things a little bit. I still like I started at a higher place on lady on Bell. Then I think anybody else in the POD so I'm probably even after this news going to be at a higher place eleven belden anyone else. Npr still think he's a high end number two running back and non. He's more of a guy you settle for a low in number two but I would still like. I don't think Frank Gore's coming in and catch any passes. I still think live on bells going to catch sixty to seventy passive year. I don't think there's any way he has the touchdown problems they did last year. And he's probably GONNA average like three point six yards per carry instead of three point two or whatever so he's going to be better than he was last year. But this this hurts the touchdown upside because Adam Date Adam Gates makes decisions. I'll just be nice so he had bell was twelfth and the NFL in carries per game but gore comes in one hundred sixty carries basically to the last two seasons. Nobody on the jets got any below. Powell had fifty nine carries but nineteen of them. Came IN WEEK. Fourteen with bell out so you wonder what the workload is. GonNa look like Mike. What's your take on the jets backfield right now. I'm actually so I pulled on my projections here. I cited more with with heath at. I had lev standard out. Pretty optimistically like he was sitting out about running back twelve for me. And we do we do a half point scoring for our projection. So I the work was just too much the Frank Gore news though for for everything laid out heath it's like you. Have you have a connection already that these these two have worked together? Frank Gore Adam gays I you you were brain draining me. Actually giving all of your your thoughts and responses. They were Adam. Gays makes stay. He seems like he makes emotionally rash decisions sometimes to put it in a kind way kinder. I treat him on my podcast which I won't bring that negativity over to you guys. So it is very possible that frank or somehow comes in gets over a hundred carries and takes away. The one thing. That left bell is good at it for New York was just he touches the ball more more than anybody else and he just you through sheer volume and that will that's how he becomes a good fantasy player so it he's outlook definitely worse today than it was yesterday. Alright Jamie you've levy on bell seventeenth right now. I think that's a non-pwi are actually and I don't know if that's updated since the Gore news is going to be a top twenty running back through. He's fourteenth the BP are still. You know it's hard to still drop I think like I'm looking at my rankings. Now is there a big difference aside from offense but in terms situation we Damon James Connor. Who you know. The steelers are trying to lower his workload. I don't the guy can put levy on Bell Behind the three rookies not named Clyde Edwards. Allaire I'd still take him ahead of Jonathan Taylor and Cam Makers Andrea Swift right now. So that's that's where he is non PR Half VP PR. He's obviously got to be higher because I think he said it he's GonNa catch the ball. I'm sure Mike would agree And the offensive line is going to be better. The offense is going to be better because we don't know I've said this time and again how healthy Sam Darnold was coming back from. Mono point did he get to one hundred percent. I think the receiving core as a whole with Chris and back and Perryman and mims or better than what they had a year ago. So everything around. This offense is better. It's just a matter of not only is it just Gore. I think there were gonNA use the Michael P Ryan in some roll. Anyway you know because I don't think Adam Gates wants to give a guy the amount of work that he gave Levy on bell. He made that clear last year when the whole fallout with cannon McKenna hand whatever his name is the GM that we can go and McCartney whatever and you know The signing they don't like he doesn't like what does he like. Lebanon belt. There's there's NO JOE bottoming out scenario here. Though for Lebanon Bell. He has not played well for two stroke. They'll trade opposite he could he could just be. He was pretty bad last year. He was a bad player. He just got so many touches if he doesn't get those touches and by the way Frank Gore had four more carries inside the five yard line. Then the entire jets team did last year so maybe he won't be as unlucky near the goal. I but maybe he won't be the goal line guy. Maybe Frank gorgets that will. There's a lot of downside with Lebanon Bell now. I don't think you should draft him in non-pwi Pr Leagues or maybe even half PBR. P R before the middle to the end around four and then NPR. I think he's gone from around three pick to I think around four pick and if you wanna just take upside that you take those other rookie like if anybody was the battle know where you came out on Mike and Heath Like Edwards layer like. I'm I'm through the moon for him. you know so. I would have taken him over bell without a question. Any format But I don't think there's a question I don't think you can justify taking the downside of bell versus the upside of Yeah I Edwards Zillur higher than than Levy on bell right now. And what's funny? Though attitude speak a little further to your frank that he did have a lemon carries for a grand total of zero. Your bad he was really bad and they still trust. Devon single weird and frustrating. All right so I don't think let's talk about marshawn Lynch. Let's let's get to more interesting stuff here. I gave Some topics the MIC before the show. Hope you did your homework here. We go ready all right rank your top five rookie running backs you want me to jump in I. Yeah Yeah it's this I'll just let you give the rankings David or note Jamie and heath my bad. We'll react to call Dave. Dave is the only person I've ever met and he's not here. Dad that will call Dave. Yeah we weren't going to tell you he hates you. He said of Jason Andy Iran. He was in for sure but I. I see how it is Well number one. I will shock everyone. Clyde Edwards layer is my number one guy The situation is just too fantastic. And then I have Jonathan Taylor at number two. So I'm not breaking with the consensus at all and honestly if if you feel so strongly about your evaluation of Taylor that he's GonNa be your number one guy. That's fine that that honestly is fine with me knowing that it will. You're still about a year away from Jonathan Taylor. Really being the guy I have. I Have Dobbins as my number three guy because we're we're not talking for this year are we. We're we're talking rookie drafts rankings. I'm giving you a fine. I didn't specify so it's real time man that was going to i. Was You know? Leave that up to you. I guess so. Yes sure rookie rookie drafts okay. Well I'm sure we can figure it out on the fly. I would take him so I got Dobbins. Then I have It it's tough man stuff how I lineup. Henry swift and camakers Acre. Seems like he's in such a good situation but because he's lined up to take the todd Gurley role but does the talk. Early role actually exists anymore for mcvay in the in the rams or did they learn a really tough lesson and they learned it like the way that Ruin Todd girlies career essentially wore out. Do they throw a third round pick from last year? Just INTO THE GARBAGE MALCOLM. Brown clearly has a ton of trust built up with this team with everything that happened last year with He went out and got an option from. I think it was from Detroit in the ramp said no you we we have to keep you and he ended up being playing in front of Henderson. So that's where it's really tough for me to put that trust into acres. I WANNA buy in I- fantasy I hope he becomes that guy because we all want super star running backs. I just have a hard time going all in on that theory and Saint Andrea Swift to like carry on Johnson's not just GonNa Vanish into thin air. Deandre swift would he was gonna be in a timeshare. Now they're coming out essentially stating verbatim. It's GonNa be a timeshare so I like those three guys a lot more than I like. Swift and acres by swift his four for you and then acres five at depends on the day. Yeah right now you get a five minutes. We'll figure it out Guys I we did. A startup dynasty draft just just a few hours ago. I had been saying that was going to tailor over Edwards e layer but this was PR push game. Shelve and I had the choice. And I took Clyde Brasileira so our yeah I you know what I think if I it were non PR. I would have gone with Jonathan Taylor but half full. I'm GonNa go with quite ever dealer but any any comments there Jamie and heath no I think I think he made the right choice. Taylor went I think early second round so not too far. I met comments on Mike top-five not I'm Mike Stop Five. Is I think this is the dilemma. A lot of people have it's The top three I think are locked in guys are locked in at number three. I do. I think if you're looking for next year He's GonNa be the starter for the Ravens and that may happen by the end of this season. Depending how Mark Ingram holds up at thirty one B. I think you're you're looking at You could probably make an argument for Dobbins over Taylor to if you're just looking at situation for next year it's a IT'S A. It's a stretch. But I think you know at Dobbins to me is third and then Same thing Flipflop on on the final two I think acres is an underrated talent Just based on what he did it for two state behind a terrible offense aligned terrible quarterback this terrible everything for them but swift is clearly the better talents a better prospect and he just may have a little bit longer to wait to be the feature guy whereas acres has a clearer path at least for twenty twenty and beyond so. How much do you like Clyde Edwards dealer? This year Mike I. I like him a lot. I think by the end of the year. He will be the guy but this is a situation where his his. Adp WAS GOING. GonNa get out of control. He'll probably be at least a third round pick. He might sneak into the second and I don't think he will be the guy right away. I think that Damian Williams has kind of earned the nominal starting role. It'll take some time for la or to to beat him out glee that the situation that people WanNa look to is the Kareem Hunt Year. Where Hunt was the rookie. Had the major breakout. The problem with that situation is Spencer. Where was the starter? He was GONNA be the starter for at least half. The year goes out with a catastrophic injury. Agreement is to the beginning. So as long as Damien Williams is on the roster. I think it will take you know. Twenty five to thirty percent of the season for alert to establish himself. Especially what is what a training camps. Look like in this world that we're all living in how. How much time do they actually get to prepare the NFL? Season I feel confidence going off. And maybe it's delayed a week or two but they're going to make that happen but what do they allow to happen for? Training camp can get Edwards come in and established that so but once he gets the job. Then it's absolute wheels up like they clearly don't trust Damien Williams as much on the ground like he'd never got the totals cream hunts receive when he was the feature back. But I you don't you don't spend a first round. Pick on a running back to have him not become your feet. Guy Eventually. Of course. Unless you're you're Pete Carroll then you just throw first round picks away are GonNa go around the room. I'll go heath Jamie and Mike Mile Sanders or Clyde resilient he's Oh Mile Sanders Jamie. I'll still take sanders for now. Oh Yeah Preston Sanders for now by a little bit all right and I've been told that you also like Schon von quite a bit. Oh Man yes I do keys keystone von but part of that is that was. That's the the narrative or the my evaluation coming to fruition. Where talking about him on tape with with Jason specifically. He's I always like I love this guy. I think he's a fantastic player. Extremely well rounded. I felt the way I I do about von felt about Alexander Madison last year coming into the draft and it seemed like no one would. I don't know if anyone's going to spend the draft capital on Vaughn. I don't know if the NFL season the way I do. But then freaking Bruce Arians Sake Sean. Von The way that we saw him. And so like Vaughn for me. If you're doing rookie drafts. He'd sneak into the back of the first round for me. It's a tougher road for a rookie. Running back to really breakthrough for Bruce Arians. He's he is notoriously. Tough on his rookies when they make a mistake. They go to the bench. Sometimes I go to the bench for Multiple Games. The competition in front of them with Ronald Jones Ronald Jones is just not he's not an actual pass catcher. Tom Brady needs a natural pass. Catcher at the running back position does that. Force Bruce to get Keyshawn von in sooner than later the these are things that. I don't have the answers to but you can project a a Caesar where Keyshawn von ends up as a as a top fifteen running back in the in the realm of possibilities for me. Anyway putting a Vaughn in your in redraft. Is he still six amongst the rookies or is he had to some of these guys? Know he'll he'll still be in the back until we get any positive movement From Tampa Bay's camp we. I'm in Arizona. I'm a diehard Cardinals Fan. So we watch the rookie season of David Johnson and and how frustrating it was to see this. The rookies the best running back on the team by Chris. Johnson was ahead of him. Andre Ellington was ahead of him. We didn't get that playoff. Run the fantasy playoff run until both those guys were hurt. Even though Dave John was doing magical things in like being fantasy relevant on one or two players a week so that that's that's the downside of keyshawn bond but the upside is is so spectacular. I think the difference though is Chris. Johnson has a resume. Ronald has resume. You know so you know they can. They can force the okay. We can play the veteran because he's done something in the past. I mean you said it. Best they're frustrated with Ronald Jones. He doesn't do the things that Bruce Arians really wants to see. I think the one thing about rookie drafts. I think you're right Novon. I don't think he's going to sneak into the first one. I think he is a first. Rounder just depends on how many people take those wide receivers ahead of him but he's going to be a guy. Think that two three years from now we could say man. Why not take him over a? Why didn't I take him over? Swift Sir Sir You know if if he clicks to the level of what he could be so he's he's a little bit of wildcard in what his upside could be because I don't think there's that much downside you know. You've you're taking the back into the first round of a rookie draft again. You're comparing him to and I'm I'm putting him behind guys like rugs and Jefferson and those guys comparing him to mims and Pitman and Klay Pool know wherever you want to throw up there in that conversation. Chenault all those guys but You know so if if you if you with on on him and those guys at you may regret it but If he does it man you could be. You could be set for few years with a pretty nice prospect all right. Let's go to the wide receivers then rank your top five rookie wide receivers Mike. Oh man that was. That was a frustrating night watching the draft unfold. Because we've all been very excited for the twenty twenty wide receiver class but the way I have them ranked I got. I'm sticking with CD LAMB at number one the landing spot in ideal but honestly. I don't know that any of them hit in ideal spot so I'm Gonna. I'm still buying into the talent of CD lamb of you're looking at long-term at least the way. His Contract Works Amari. Cooper could be out in a couple of years. I'm not saying for sure that's going to happen. But it's one of those one of those things that you have to balance when you're looking at a long term situation so I got lamb I. I got judy seconds. I have I've got a kind of go back and forth with regular and and Jefferson like the way that I look at camakers running back situation. You know it it's I. It should be raised. It should be because his his spot is a little bit better than Jefferson. Where you're talking about it offense that they will throw the ball six hundred times if they have to. He has a really clear path to being the number one guy student and later and just Jefferson's in a low pass. He's in a low pass up. He's clearly the number two guy at best while Adam feeling is so. That's why I mean it's it should be regular but I like Justin Jefferson the player more than I liked. Jalen raker so I I. It's a struggle with those guys. And then somehow the first running first wide receiver in the draft rugs. He's my guy 'cause I just. I don't know what to do with the player who was third on his own teen. Seems like his speed is the calling card in the raiders. Just continue to be obsessed with speed but can he really turn into a number one or is he Jonas? Air Like Sean Jackson where? He's extremely valuable very helpful to your NFL franchise but you're not counting on D. Jax for for fantasy purposes. He he's had a couple of seasons here and there but he's he has like never turned into a superstar number one wide receiver. And I fear that could be the path for Henry Rugs. Now it's funny. He keeps saying it should be Jefferson. You're right it should be Jefferson. Talking deficit man. We we had A. We do a competition every year. On the footballers where we pick. Who's who's WHO's going. Where and I had Jefferson. Going to the eagles everything was lined up for me and then they just kicked me right in the groin. I think only twice in the last ten years has the first. This is not so much dynasty discussion but the first wide receiver selected finished as the top rookie wide receiver in that first year. Right so interesting. Amari Cooper in two thousand fifteen and Calvin Ridley in two thousand eighteen now recently since two thousand fourteen. It's been Beckham Cooper Michael Thomas. Juju Smith Schuster Alvin Ridley and AJ Brown. Those have been your highest finishing rookie wide receivers. They were selected third. I sixth six I fourth person for they So all top six four of them top four and that would mean that if they're all top six there were six wide receiver selected around one. If you actually go back before that the two thousand ten Mike Williams was the fifteenth wide receiver drafted. He was number one that year. Victor Cruz was an undrafted. Free agent. T. Y. Hilton was the thirteenth wide receiver drafted and Keenan. Allen was the so. It seems like they've gotten better drafting wide receivers in the NFL. But I think like high rose went pretty late in in the dynasty star that we did today and it just seems like is people. Don't care who the first wide receiver drafted. That just doesn't seem to matter all that much not as much as running back. I'd say that he would. You agree with that premise. Based on it's based on what we've seen in recent history. I think it really depends on who. You're drafting with I I know that there are some people and I've seen them on twitter that have rugs as still the as the best wide receiver but partially because they liked him like almost equally. Am and judy and partially because rugs went I and like even if they're not the best wide receiver there's a pretty decent history of the first wide receiver getting a lot of opportunity in year. One at the very least it's going to be so I just don't know with rugs how they're going to use him. If the plan is we're going to use outside opposite tyrone Williams we're GonNa have renfro and waller running the short areas targets and rugs and going deep that I hate rooks but if the plan is one hundred Info just a guy and he's already past his prime anyway we're put rugs in the slot and have him do things. Is that Renfro Age joke. It was thank you for at Then I think that rugs could be phenomenal. He could be like tyree kills rookie year where he didn't really run very many routes. He just did a lot of stuff. Around the scrimmage and then we'll go deep occasionally and it works really well night doesn't have Andy Reed's didn't have that good of a rookie year. If you take away rushing stats right well. I would presume that they were like they're going to give in rugs. Some jet sweeps right. If they're gonNA use them the way possible. Yes yeah he'll had five hundred ninety three receiving yards six touchdowns two hundred sixty seven guards. That's a ton and three touchdowns you don't see that very often but if you were going to do like yeah you're GonNa you're gonNA draft use a right right so I think that for wide receiver heath season versus redraw seasonal versus dynasty. Re Jefferson is. He's very different conversation right. So who's who's your favorite rookie wide receiver just for this year. It's actually the same. It is different but it's the same guy for me for this year. It's Judy I had judy. And Lamb really really close before the draft. I liked lamb slightly more. I think the landing spot might be slightly better for Judy. And that was enough to tip it and his favor and dynasty is still going back to back But Judy's my favorite now. There are some guys that we haven't mentioned yet that I think have a chance to be best rookie in redraft Louise's cushion ALZ and Denzel. Mims both have an opportunity. I think to be the best rookie this year. But don't have anywhere close to in my opinion the same upside as or judy. Does anybody like Brandon. I you see forty. Niners do loves him. They're they're great on him and I heard from somebody who's connected to the organization that day they were taking in order At their pick was thirty Down forget whether they had four they ended up with fifteen traded down for you and then once the bucks right so they were taking kin. Law One lamb to know Kim on one to one land went after they said that I was the guy they would've taken if they didn't take in law there and lamb had had not been taken. I think it was it was it was kin. Law Lamb was the order that they wanna they took. That pretty clearly tells us that you can have like a six week stretch as the top twelve wide receiver and then completely disappeared from the face of the earth after his rookie year. And I will take that six game stretch next year. I will say he was the number eight wide receiver. I already looks. I think we moved down from thirteen to fourteen and moved down from thirteen to fourteen because the bucks moved up one spot and then they moved back into the no. They're picking the first round was their original but they got from traitor Toda. They did trade up though to two twenty five to take whatever first round picks you they wanted lamb if I if I heard I think. They traded back from thirteen to fourteen up from thirty one to twenty five and yeah. Let's let's just go with that all right so we've talked a lot about the veteran players who were affected by the NFL draft. And I think the one we've talked the most about is Amari Cooper and You know well I'll just ask you where you where you on. Amari Cooper they added. Cd-rom how do you feel about him? Right Main Amari Cooper of had a varia storied past. Where I I just can't buy into Amari Cooper like he will be great for half the year and he will be yes like how many years in a row do. We have to see it happen. How many excuses do we have to give Amari Cooper like yeah I get it? He started out really hot. And then okay. I guess he was playing with an injury like but that was this year what we give him an excuse and a pass every single year. Clearly the talent is there. And that's what's so bizarre about Amari Cooper is I have no idea. I have no idea why he how he vanishes for. He was still top ten. I mean he's still finished eighth tenth of PR. That's the problem though is at the end of the year. When you're trying to remember what happened. Okay let's go. Look at the final standings Mark Cooper top twelve. Oh Yeah Mayo. He doesn't include the Again and and but and then your memory starts going up. Oh may remember great. He was at the beginning of the year. Imagine imagine if he did that the entire season. And we've done that five years in a row now for Amari Cooper. So yeah. Guess what Amari Cooper is going to finish as a top fifteen probably as the top twelve wide receiver. But he won't be on any of my teams because I've been fooled for the fifth time of buying into Marc Cooper as he can really get it done now and Michael Gallup was pacing. Just behind Amari Cooper in I think Gallup played fourteen games by remember correct off the time had they averaged almost the same amount of fantasy points per game in pr almost identical. Yeah and you can get Gallup way later. Gallup's even GONNA move down. I imagine a bit. Adp because of the fears of CD lamb. Which I'm not concerned for for Michael Gallup. The GALP who is still going to be great but a marker he will he will finish really really high and he will disappoint you a whole bunch of times which one hundred million dollar wide receiver should not be doing that. And I don't know why he does. Okay Rex Ryan. I know what you guys I know you. Would he through talking about the Ping Pong table? So let's play. Let's play this little game here. We had a A three wide receiver. Pr draft with a flex so pretty wide receiver heavy last week who are first draft since the NFL draft. Amari Cooper went thirty sixth overall last pick of round. Three Michael Gallup went in the middle of raw toward the end of round six so about seventieth and let's see where. Cd LAMB WET round. Eight two rounds after Michael Gallup. So you're talking three or four. Turn for Cooper round six for Gallup around eight for lamb. What's your favorite value? There I would take Michael Gallup. They're like I. I don't. I generally don't draft rookie wide receivers and redraft. I target them halfway through the season once they really start to break out just with with all my experience and research. That's to me. That is my. That's my optimal strategy of how to deal with rookie wide receivers and like I said Amari Cooper is not going to be on any of by teams at the end of the third round. That's actually that's not terrible for a guy who can. Who Will he will win you a couple of weeks. He will cost you a couple of weeks. So that's the balance of the young. They're Gimme Michael Gallup at the end of the sixth round. I think something you said there for me is going to apply to all rookies. I'm not sure like once we get down to like August with where I expect. Eighty ps to be even for the running backs the very top of this class. I expect most of this rookie class is going to be worse than ADP for the first month of the season because they're not getting the same exposure to nfl practice that they normally do over the offseason. So I don't know that I'm going to draft any rookies but I'm going to be making a Lotta trade offers for them in October. Well we we keep saying you know. I'm I'm with you on this but remember. They haven't fully cancelled anything yet. Well I can't tell rookie. Ota's off season. This is all virtual now. Yes but there. I think as long as we have a normal training camp. That's really what's going to matter the most so if we do have a normal training camp and I think they still have a shot to be fine and I think it really more applies to the quarterback probably a little bit the wide receivers. But I think it's the quarterback taking in all the knowledge that is really going to impact the most. I think though that even if everything were normal you had the rookie minicamp. She had training camps. Most likely a good strategy would be to not draft them and try to buy low on them. Because set over and over again these rookie running backs. Don't get immediate work. Typically unless their first round picks And then we haven't really had an example where somebody's been the last pick of the first round and rookie wide receivers typically don't have that big of an impact so it could. It could apply regardless of the situation. It's not a bad idea. But he he said something earlier that. I think applies to this as well as that. You know that mims somebody who for this year could be the Best Guy Pittman as the potential starter opposite t y Hilton could be the best guy you know. I mean Chenault could be the best you feel like you got to get a piece of this receiver class let somebody else chase lamb and judy or rugs. Jefferson or whoever regular You know and then you still can get some pretty good players much much cheaper like I. I'M GONNA take Antonio Gandhi golden every draft. Yeah he's he's good man he a good and it's it's you know. Kinda like you were saying about People not even. Nfl Wise may be falling in love with Madison. Or falling. In love with Vaughn. He went to liberty. You know people don't don't spend a lot of time watching liberty fantasy players time watching liberty. How Jamie he can be the starter in Washington Liberty you? You're a liar though because you didn't take them in this draft. You took hunter. Renfro with your last pick instead of its own instead of Gingrich stress in this three receiver. Pr draft that we did last week grafting for like five people. You probably left to go. Do a baseball podcast. I did this. I think this was the draft. You did for me actually. Yeah it was all right. You are forgiven you ever given. This is what I get Mike. This is why we do these drafts and I get everybody's I sent once. They were doing one on Thursday. Fourteen people they all said yes they all said yes so now. I gotTA kick somebody out because we're only doing twelve teams or people then what will happen is we get to the day of the draft. I always did this two days in advance. So get gets it. Thursday. I'm going to get four people saying Hey Can you make the I two picks me? I'm going to be doing this or I'm not gonNA be able to finish the draft. Can you finish it off for me? I ended up drafting for five people. I don't know which team is mine whether you could address the golden for what had five opportunities do it. I I got three kids running around. I got a good you as a child. Yes able to doing a podcast and making a bike before we. I am going to ask you personal questions at the end of the show. Oh yeah before we do that or any other any other any other Mike. Knowledge you WanNa drop drop the MIC knowledge. I got there there. You got there is love. Love to get your guys as temperature on Antonio Gibson for from Washington because he was a player that I like scouting him. He's fantastic when you throw on his highlight tape. You go like Holy Crap. Then you look at his actual measurable of of of how big and fast he is like. Wow this is he. He's a very intriguing player and widen. He get to play. Then you have to figure out the back story for Gibson. He gets some trouble with his grades so he was unable to get to a D. One school was able to finally transfer and then and then he's playing behind. You know was Henderson Paul. Allard I think the guys in front of him like two. Nfl running backs so once he finally got his chance to shine. He's raised a human highlight. Reel had I found myself really falling in love with Gibson in our footballers dynasty league. I took them in the middle of the second round even with having picks after that. Because I didn't WanNa take the chance that I wasn't going to get Antonio Gibson on my squad because I think the upside is tremendous. I want to see. How are you guys feeling about him? And what position is he going to play? I think he's GonNa play running back from Washington and you know they're starting to talk which is gonNA drive. Adp up of all the next Christian. Mccaffrey Because of Ron Rivera and the staff there I'll give you another example of a dynasty draft so heath and I are in a rookie only draft right now Adam I put him on the team. You'll like this like the prank. Adam I put him on the team because he needed to see the results so as a result of that he gets all the alerts and the emails from the League he has no no part whatsoever so every and then the name. I named my team somebody else in the league. We'll Brinson if you know him one of our. Nfl You so people send will trade offers thinking it's will and then they say oh should we talked to Adam as well loop amon atom has no part of the team's not even will seem so i. I have a lot of fun with that. But in any event so Jamie has willing me making traits for essentially yes I I. I had three picks in the second round the fourth pick and then thirteen fourteen fourteen league. I thought okay. I'M GONNA get one of Moss or Dylan at the four spot. I took Moss and then I'm like okay. They're six other guys. I WANNA get two of them Somebody dropped right ball. Armstead don't know why but Gibson was one. Mcfarland was one Darren Evans who I like and Josh Kelley I was hoping I'll get to those they all went and when I was like man I just that was the one guy was. I don't know fall. I tried to make a trade up to you to get it get a piece of I'm with you. I keep getting more and more excited about it. I think he's GonNa be fun. The problem is there's so many guys in the Backfield is your so many guys. They're the one that I'm actually. The most concerned about for Gibson is mckissick. Because I do think that they can use them in. Pass catching your own. I think that's Gibson has the best chance to shine as a rookie. I've been a closet mckissick guy for a couple of years but like I just think the problem with Gibson is like in our draft where he went mostly towards the end of that run or right in the middle of it. That's okay but even today as the news was coming out that Ron Rivera said he had the skill set of Christian McCaffrey. I would be very surprised if in the next month his rookie. Adp's not the first four or five picks in the second round. I wouldn't be surprised if it's like two point one to point two and I think that's too risky. There's still he can't start going ahead of that tier of receivers for me. At least where meme Chenault Pittman. Those guys are if he's going at the very start of the running back. Run after those receivers I I'd be more okay with it. Yeah I totally agree with that. I- mims and Pittman were off the board that's who I was targeting with my picks and if if people are just hearing the McCaffrey comps people after the NFL draft. You need to go watch tape of the way that these coaches. Gm's are talking about the players because McKay has Rivera made that McCaffrey. Comp like right after the draft. It's weird that it's just coming out today but I'd be lying if I didn't say that. I got a little hyped when I when I heard him say that I like display. You want to call them Christian. Mccaffrey great because on my team. It's like Andy Reid and bread veep saying what what. Oh okay. Yeah so. Who would you guys? Let's say you're in a dynasty league. Would you rather have Darius guys Antonio Gibson guys guys but still you still believe you can turn it around. I think if they both hit so what they could be guys will be better. I I agree with that. It's just will geisler Gibson's Christmas. I don't think he's GonNa be Christmas. Redskins would fight away. This group McCaffrey. All right. Let's get let's get personal with Mike Right. We have two options for the for the name of the segment. Either the right questions or hot mic or would you prefer Oh hot. My is pretty easy all right so I know you're a big video game guy. What are your top three video games of all time? Ooh alright my top video against of all time legends Zelda Link to the past the Super Nintendo one is the the greatest video game ever created then will have to go super smash brothers sixty four which I whenever it comes up. The topic comes up of smashed. Sixty four let. Everyone know that I was the greatest player of all time. I I'm willing to back it up anytime anywhere and I will destroy your soul and then third I was a really big lucas arts graphic adventure nerd. I don't know if you guys have any idea what those games are But I'll go with I'll say the secret of monkey island. I'll author that one house number three played none of those. Oh man you missed out. You missed out those games. Were fantastic smash brothers. I mean I've played I place mash mothers. I don't know but Zelda on the original nintendo is impossible I can't get I I. I'd like thirty seconds so hard. Yeah you're just you're just bad so I wouldn't have you played smash Bros on the switch. I have not the last one I played was the we and not even the U. I before this whole thing I would have groups of teenagers over here playing smash brothers on the on the switch if you pass put out of Craigslist I. I'm sure it's like even going from the sixty four version to the GAMECUBE Berge. There was really really big differences. I heath and I are are unified. J. video game video game. Yeah yeah mostly sports heath and I would say that. Golden I should be on anybody's top three but see. The is Goldeneye socks compared to perfect dark. We're just got to take your word for that. I have a question when because I was listening to our interview. Would YOU MR at the Super Bowl when you ask them about Goldeneye? You Qualify Smith Schuster. Because they're so well after he's comment. I think we have the call for everything. Did he agree with you about golden eye when you ask them did? I did agree with me. I fast forward through is. I didn't listen to you. Heard of it. Yeah I was too young I think was so so my we talked to Juju Smith Schuster. At on radio row and that night he was playing was a grump in fort was point four nine now he was playing a pro always playing a pro for right so adams like I want to ask him about video games. I thought this is where he was going with you. The same thing And so yes gold nine. Oh yeah sure. Yeah Julia guys. I don't know we're all our next question. What shows are you watching right now? Oh the problem with shows is I am A. I'm a movie Guy. Just it's hard for me to get into shows like I. I guess maybe the commitment and then I miss out analysis on. There's three seasons that I'm supposed to catch up with so I I'd like moves. I mean for three years at a time that you're missing out on three seasons of a show not watching shows man I'm watching the Jordan docked that that thing I just inject that right into my veins it. It's so fantastic so that that would be the only thing. I'm watching regularly right now. I just went through all the marvel movies in chronological order and it was fantastic if I know I've seen them all but like now. They're all on Disney plus and available or here and there was just it was there's tons tons of of small little pieces that you don't remember from Ironman to what you saw you know ten years ago so the the congruency that they've worked in there is actually pretty interesting. Let's go back to video games. Yes ever did you ever get good at four-night or were you just old? I have never played fortnight ever. It's why there was a time when it was like when it was really breaking out a couple of years ago this is a you know. Pub- G player player known around so there was a few of us playing that and I just. I couldn't handle that game it was. It was too slow infuriating. All you did was collect stuff and then the if you then you would just die immediately. I just wasted fifteen minutes so fortnight kind of broke out right after that I kept saying I'm GONNA get into it but I just never did the US apart from Smash Bros there was. There was appeared in my life when I when I was going to school in College. And I got really into the fighting game community back when Streetfighter four had kind of just come out so I I would. I would travel around the state go to earn amounts. And there's there's a big tournament in Las Vegas. Every single year called. Yvo that I went to and I did okay. A couple of times there So when it comes competing it's apparently is fighting games. As is what I like to go with I was GONNA ask you about game of thrones but I I guess you haven't seen I've seen. Oh yeah the the big ones? I've seen thrones breaking bad But things like like the office I think I made four seasons in then. I just got overwhelmed and so I've never seen the whole office. People get really really mad when you say you have seen the office. Oh Yeah it's great but like Jamie's never seen the office but he uses all the office shifts all the time. It drives me crazy. I think it says drive you crazy jet. Ju just say Jif Yeah. That's shifts right. Oh wait don't disagree with the only take Adams ever head didn't jabs the guy said it's I don't care what the Guy Said. What's the what is the first word in that? Acronym stand for. Let's GRA graphic Jurat geographics. That doesn't even make. I respect the guy who created it though I feel like you have to respect a no. I mean he doesn't respect the English language. I get all right. I'll ask you a question. Favorite movie diehard. Oh Yes is Jerry Maguire sports movie. Yeah Jerry Maguire. Not a sport. This sport is hardly any sports. It think about it. But it's about nightline it's not about sports a love story about a guy whose life involves sports so it's about love. It's this love story. It's not a sports story. Mike Listen forget everybody else. All right doesn't mean you listen. I can't I can't make the offer but if things don't work out at the Footballer and we need to replace a host again I can't make an offer all right but we we're on the same page with a lot of stuff here. So you we. We would love to have you just. There's still an audio production background so responsibilities I your favorite fantasy league format is what so to Qb Ppo what would be your favorite leak format. I like three keepers. My favorite format is is three keepers. And it's a half PR ONE FLEX LEAGUE NO SUPER FLEX. Now I mean it's I like the concept of Super Flex of how were you know restoring balance to the Gore back position? But I don't think you need to a our game is fantasy. Football game is not the NFL. And I will take all the loopholes in it's the quarterback streaming situation is just. It's very fun to me like I'm going to the waiver wire. I'm putting it all on the line right now saying that Daniel Jones is about to go up against the Tampa Bay buccaneers and nobody wants him scuba them up. I'm throwing my lineup. Which you can't do that nearly as much when you're in the Super Flex Heathen Jamie of I have one more question but I'll let you guys go for it. If you have anything now I think you guys are big into football correct. Yes Oh we are. The fantasy footballers are big into all table and Rick Games. So I if you want to get destroyed at foods ball or shuffle shuffleboard. We're over here at look up. It would be to be worse at anything that I am. Zelda but truth ball might be that bad. It's it's impossible. It's so hard I'd die like a like you in fort night or whatever whatever you were saying pub G it's just fifteen minutes thirty seconds for me. I'm just like screw this. I'm playing punch out like the very best thing we could do for. Twitches just stopped doing these things where we talk to each other at fantasy football and you just stream dream getting your ass kicked. Zelda over and over again. I'm having to do it. I could set that up. I last thing then regularly leave out the first thirty seconds the only council thirty seconds there are no next thirty seconds and try to explain rank.

Tell your kids twitter at the F. ballers. Mike is at F- HITMAN JASON IS AT JASON NFL I'm Andy Holloway and I did post a picture of the car thermometer showing a sweet one sixteen here in Arizona yesterday Nice so you know that it's real. All right quick question of the day on today's show. This comes in from Stephen in New Jersey. He says he won the loser's bracket of teams. That didn't make the playoffs, so he gets to choose his draft position as a consolation. What spot should I pick from? And what factors should I consider when selecting my draft spot? K. K. I. Mean there is no right answer. You can win from anywhere out. There I would save. The right answer well. If I'm picking the spot. It's going to be one or two. I want Christian. McCaffrey, or I want one of these studs. So Zeke is a big to for you this year. For me to my favorite spots, the number two. Yeah I want I want one of those two. I would probably pick the number one pick. Just get McCaffrey. Get it out of the way deal with the fact that my second round is a little weaker because he's so much better if he retains that same work, workhorse role, but let's say you're in one of those leagues. Where you know you you. You do get an order to who picks, but those top spots are gone. That's where this year I like. The eleven spot I liked the eleven because one. It's very strategic to be one spot off of the turn. You can play the look at one other. After look at their roster say they need to go this position so I'm going to go that position I then they're gonNA. Take two of those I'll get the other guy want love being one spot away from the turn, which Andy as you said you liked the number two spot that would be the same thing, and the other reason is because this year. I'm all in on Kenyan. Drake I think he is a top back. He be there at eleven spot I'm. I'm right now. I'm in an industry mock draft with a bunch of Jake Sealy and Loza. Brad, Evans Bunch Bunch of people, great people and I'm at the eleven and I started with Dalvin Cook. Who fell there and it around withdraws Jacobs. So you know to me if you can start with to start running backs at the end of the I I'm just as happy with that as I would be getting, you know one of those top two guys. Mike. I'm Zeke is still in the top tier for me, so I'm I'm fine with the top three pick, but. If you have your choice, you and you really favor one of those running backs and just take the first pick. It really, but to your point. If you think there are three guys in that category, then go with the lowest. If you think there's five guys in their category, go with the lowest so that you can turn around in the second round with the best odds of getting a high value player I got a DM somebody asking us you know. Why why project, a player like Michael Thomas at number, one at the wide receiver position when historically players that finish number one at any of the positions don't generally repeat. The finish. And so I thought that was an interesting question to bring up to in the context of maybe this McCaffrey or McCaffrey, saquon. Zeke choice. The reason players are projected. That way is not because you're guaranteed. Have that player repeat? It's all based on. Probability of a player putting up a great season, so even if Micheal Thomas is unlikely to be the number one. He is still the most likely. In terms of who you could select to end up there does that make sense? After I mean. For me like Micheal. Thomas Volume is going to repeat Christian McCaffrey does have the red flag of he's got you new people calling the shots, but he. Most likely to repeat at the position then I think for McCaffrey is Reggie Bonifant. Because that's sure who's sharing the work, there's just nobody else on phone. Yeah, there's some there's nobody else to share the load with. Reverence the super bombed Reverend's. That was a super on reference for bomb bonds. Oh Man I I thought that was just for the people i. I enjoyed it was subtle, but. Ninety s alternate so. Yeah I mean, and the thing is is if you put those players, you know if you charted all the, let's see the top players. Maybe Michael. Thomas has a thirty percent chance to repeat. Maybe you think. Julio Jones has a twenty five percent chance to be the number one receiver. That's how I think of it mentally as each of these players has a percentage chance of being the top guy. Some of them have a higher chance of being a guaranteed top five player, and that's kind of how you look at it if you want to take the shot. Shot that's why, like being number, two I, think Saquon, because of who he is, the talent, the ability what he did at the back half of the year after the injury, and you combine that with what McCaffrey like you brought up different offense, some variables different quarterback I put them very similar in terms of their odds of tradition in number one so I choose to number two there and be a pick earlier later, but. That's kind of the thought process behind those I want to encourage everybody to check out. For Clan Vote Dot com, you can nominate the podcasts for the podcast awards. We are nominated in the people's choice and the sports category.

You have a reputation to uphold here so true no pressure but. You know. Symbol. SANSOM's in in the news. They're judge the Amati anything. For us to discuss the NFL's released a picture of new helmet. Is that news. It is now now that you brought it up. I like It's an interesting time because training camp. We don't know if it's GONNA start on time every day. There's a piece of news positive or negative in in the endeavor for the NFL in the NFL PA to get at twenty twenty season together. I you know this falls in the cool. They're doing more things to try to help. The players category. I thought it was interesting. three teams are have expressed interest in free agent Jordan Reed. Incredible we should've. We could've taken him with our last pick in the. Visual, but got a Guy Rodney Anderson. What's? Dismembered your Michael Finley. Remember when there was some interest at the end of his career, and we're all kind of just saying listen. Yeah, but I think he just. Like, didn't he have a full on insurance policy on himself? Where if he didn't go back to football that he got this huge pay day so I mean it was one. He didn't have to risk his body by by going back into. He's still made the money, so Jordan reads career. Earnings are twenty five point zero two million dollars. It's not bad. That's not bad. Stay safe. My friend stacy saved. He's such a great talent that you would love to see that resurgence. If Possible I. Just read off reads injuries. Are they suck so bad man what he could have been. Yeah. Yeah, all right. If we don't want to talk about any other there's no other news to talk about. Let's get division. Let's get divisional. Are I were in the AFC east. If you wanted to apprise herself of the previous. What is it to episodes? That's when we began the divisional breakdowns. Yes so we? We are releasing shows three times a week right now. Tuesday Thursday Saturday, so he released a Saturday episode this past week. You can check out as well mine I. Just recommend you do check them out because they are excellent of. Not It's one of those things where I love going through this process. Because all three of us, we do our own research. We prep for these shows. Then we come in. We're all land out our beliefs and a Lotta Times. Hearing all three of our opinions changes. My own rankings I've got my rakes pulled up. You know going through and I, it's just really valuable to have the big snapshot of a team at a time it's really the only time of the year that we take a holistic look at one team, and so you want to get all the divisional breakdowns for sure, so if you missed the last two congratulations, you have more footballers. To today's AFC ease were doing AFC west on Thursday. Then we're coming back with a mock draft episode on Saturday and then we'll go back through divisions after that. The New England. Patriots twelve and four. They're the team will start this discussion around. No more Tom, Brady. That's been the headline of the entire off season last year. They were eighteenth in the NFL in rushing yards per game passing yards per game. They were up at number eight. This was not the same old patriots offense. We know that their defense played such a huge role last year in what they were able to accomplish twelve and four they ranked twenty third in yards per offensive play, and that went down. From week seven seventeen, so they were even less productive over the back half of the year, just four point nine yards per offensive play twenty fifth in football that has the fewest yards per play, since two thousand and six for a patriots team, which I thought was very interesting. When you look holistically at this team and what you would expect them to be able to do this year, there's a lot of kind of like high level perception that. Tom Brady's gone. This team can only exist in the framework of a great defense and kind of figuring out the offense bit by bit, but now cam, Newton's been signed. And, they weren't that great on offense last year, despite going twelve and four, Mike. I know that you believe. In ballot check more than just about anybody so. Is it a rosier view at this point when you when you see that the offense wasn't great. Last year there were still twelve and four. You've got Cam Newton coming in now. It thought what my thoughts are. It's. It's really interesting because this won't be the first time that Bill Belichick has. Shuffled up his entire offense and this these are offense. That had Tom Brady he he's been run heavy. He's been tied in heavy. He's been. He's had two tight end sets. He's had elite wide receiver numbers with like Randy Moss the slot receivers kind of a A common factor that he always has that, but other than that like he bill belichick changes things all the time. He tries to stay one to two steps ahead of what the NFL is doing to catch up when his offense has become prolific, so I'm very excited to see what he can do with with Cam Newton on Projecting Cam Newton as a starter, but I'll say. I still believed in this team when we thought it was going to be Jarret Stidham. I think that bill will figure it out and they'll be guys with fantasy value on this team still. One of the things. That's interesting as you. You brought up there tight in. The ROB Gronkowski Aaron Hernandez era of Patriots. Offense football, and then you look to last year where they were literally dead last in the national, Football League, in terms of targets the tight end position. They didn't have one, so they don't throw them right. And that's good coaching rather than informing targets to positions and players that don't have the ability to produce. We keep trying to as the fantasy community a large year after year fit. Our expectations onto bill belichick as opposed to the other way around at times. And then you end up with that situation where they're not targeting the tight end, and yeah, you sure you pick the right patriots site in their dead last in league and targets. Jason, what what are your thoughts on this offense as a whole when it comes to fantasy and potential opportunities that maybe the fancy community isn't seeing. Yeah, I think everything changed when they got Cam Newton This offense was one. I didn't want any part of and changed a little bit when they brought in Cam Newton specifically. The running game I think things are going to open up for Sony Michelle a lot last year. He was not good I. Don't know that he's really ever been good I wasn't a huge fan of him coming out of college. Can I shoot a stat at you J. to highlight that? Yes, I've got my bulletproof vest on. Sony Michelle. Has Five that's he has five running back. One scoring weeks in twenty nine regular season games with naive teen weeks is an RB three or lower. Yes, and they'd. He doesn't get the goal line now. I am news five times. Yeah, which? Has Been Good News when when you when you didn't believe in the player, but I also think that you know when when Tom Brady's obviously Tom Brady's goat. He's great, but when. They didn't do what you would expect them to do of of like masking when they're gonNA run. Just bring in, say we're running the ball and a heavyset and I. think that it's only isn't good enough to get it done, but here's the thing that changes when Cam Newton is on the field against stacked boxes. This is according to Warren Sharp. Cam Newton in the panthers against stacked boxes. Running backs were able to. have a great yards per carry a great positive result, and as soon as cam left. They didn't and that's the same running back so. You, have to. It's very similar what you see in Baltimore if you have a true mobile quarterback and I think Bill Belichick is going to run Cam Newton like crazy. It's a one year contract. He's going to see if he can create a great offense around Cam. Newton strengths and I think that will open up rushing lanes for Sony Michelle so the goal line. might be bolted a little bit, but I do. Do think if Sony does not land on the PUP. He's such a value dress right now because you can get late not mid rounds late rounds, and that's where it's like. He's one of the last starters left. So Cam helps me believing that, and and I also believe in Cam Newton. I think he's going to be pretty good for fantasy. He has never not been good for fantasy when he's on the field. Do you agree with the assessment of Sony Michelle Mike I. Find Myself while he is a great value, late and drafts perceptually. I just. I just don't know if we're GONNA get it when we need it. Yeah. That's very fair, but I'm fine with his draft price because he just building in building in the margin. For Sony Michelle to hit some type of a ceiling at running back thirty seven right now in best ball. The that's that's absolutely outstanding value now his counterpoint. counterpart I should say of James, White who has averaged ninety four targets over the last four years. How do you guys feel about James White? As just a late around P P are running back. Who's had great fantasy success also been kind of man and the we saw enough of the. Cam Newton doesn't throw the running back narrative like Christian McCaffrey blew that up, so if James White is there in an in a Patriot system and Cam Newton's the quarterback white, still going to see targets, but do you. Do you want James? White any teams I. I don't think I've even consider drafting James. White, at any point of this off season I. Think a lot of it to me has to do with. Whether to kill, Harry is a viable targeted in this offense on a regular basis and whether this. Absolute atrocious trade for Mohamed Sanu ends up being a horrible buster, not I mean Mohammed so new in. Atlanta was a slot dominator. And here you have Julian Ataman that spot in this offense, and did nothing if he harry so new and are the primary targets in this offense than James. What's going to be one of those players that in a pinch? Yeah, you can start him, but it's not a reliable week to week type of player. A. Lot of what Cam Newton did successfully the last time we saw him healthy on the field. Was Attributed to essentially short passing putting him in a position where he could succeed in on the underneath route, which is complimentary for James Right if he lines up in the slot and runs some of those underneath high percentage throws for Cam Newton in this offense, then maybe but I. You're right I. It's a weird dynamic where James White. Doesn't really fit into the narrative fantasy. Wise for this team and I don't know if that's a mistake or not. I think it's just because we can't have our. Heads around this offense. Well, you're. You're certainly going to pass the ball less with Cam Newton than you did with Tom. Brady Cam Newton's never been anywhere near the passing volume that Brady had last year. part of that is because he scrambles from time to time, and those are the plays that take away from the pass catching running back. I'M GONNA. Say something that I think we'll surprise a lot of people james why? Is Not Christian McCaffrey when? When, they brought in Chris McCaffrey. Yes Cam Newton through the bars. Who Him because he's Christian McCaffrey. To? Yes, thank you. I mean shocking. But the reality is I think a lot of the dump off. The timing routes the pockets collapsing to check down guy from Brady. Those are gone with Cam Newton. Now it's scramble by time. Find something. Throw the ball downfield or pick it up with my leg, so he'll be involved in PR league. Maybe you can. Have you know a borderline flex player, but he's not a guy that I'm interested in. Jillian Ataman is the wide receiver thirty three right now and drafts Nikiel Harry's the wide receivers sixty five in drafts. The white outs I was like Julian Ataman I'm still. I'm confident with Julian. especially at this draft cost wide receiver thirty-three currently in Best Ball. He's coming off the best year of his career like Julian annulment. He's he. He's already an outlier in terms of age in production, so I'm still willing to draft the wide receiver ten half. I'm willing to give him a shot in the wide receiver thirties. What I wanted to bring up. I took a deeper look at Nikiel. Hairy and comparable drafted players, so I went, and I looked because Harry was a bust. And what kind of hope should we have for a player of his draft pedigree to? Break out so over the last ten years I looked at first first and second round, wide receivers who were drafted who put up under thirty perceptions in their rookie season. We have twenty seven wide receivers who have next year data. So across these players again these. Kind of an arbitrary number, but I wanted a really low number to see if these players succeeded or not. Of the twenty-seven players, the average receptions for their rookie seasons, sixteen receptions the average increase. To the next year. About sixteen receptions so really not anything that you were with can ask you a question for clarity there though because. You didn't see a snap that week eleven is that include players that are this? This is injured. It doesn't remember. I did not remove players for any reason of Some guys were hurt. Some guys just didn't produce. He was a little bit of both because he was hurt for the majority of the season, but then really didn't come in correct and splash at all. There were twelve receptions on the entire years. Yeah, there were three players who made a big jump that you were happy with. That would have been randall Cobb who went up fifty five receptions. He went fifty five. And we're remote today. Mike Insect DJ Shark went up fifty nine receptions and now Sean Jeffrey went up sixty five perceptions now. There are some notable players in this group. That took a few years to. kind of become something like Golden. Tate married Thomas Davonte devante Parker is in that group now and Mike Williams. I kinda put him in that bunch of. He's he's. He's a fine fantasy player now but. If you're just going on historical comps. It's not. Positive News for Nicole Harry Yeah. My my initial thought was the same as Andy's was that he missed so much the season due to injury that you can't really tell just hard to hold twelve receptions against the guy that didn't play until week eleven. Yeah, I mean that, but that is the thing right. He played in seven games and you know would have his sixteen game pace in those seven was twenty seven receptions so that that's. Not Good. I apologize for him I. HE I have no qualms with taking a shot at him. I think he's got equal odds of being the number one seaver on that team and you're paying nothing for him. He did have more rushing attempts. Then their third round running back selection. The whole season in Daming Harris so that's incredible. Is that true. That is funny set. I like a shot on one of these players if you look at the team as a whole as we move onto. To Buffalo. I, feel like every single player on this entire team has been adjusted down in ADP due to the ambiguity of this off season and losing Tom Brady there is. You know if if there's a proportionate brady bump in on the Tampa side, there is a what's the opposite of what's opposite of a bump. How do you go down a deputy? Yeah, there. There's a brady dip in all. ADP's on this team. So whether Sony Michelle James Wine and kill Harry Julia Elman. If. You have a beat on this team. If you have a player, you like. You're getting them cheaper than their finish. In the ironic part is, we could very easily look back and say that. Cam this coming year was better than Brady was last year and that Brady this coming year was worse for fantasy purposes than James Winston was last year I. It. It's possible that you should be getting a Brady dip in Tampa. Chur and and it's. It's gross but I want to throw it out. If you have to. If you're in a really deep league and you've got to grab one of these tight ends of matlock hosue was on the team last year. Did nothing and then you have the rookies Naasi, oil, or adult and Keane. Who are you pick? You have to take one. Don't tell me you've not taken when you have to gross. I, we'll say okay my answer if I'm on the clock and I have to take one is Jordan Reed and I'm not joking. I would rather have Jordan Reed on my roster right now. Hoping he could signed somewhere then one of those guys. I guess it's Ozzie Ozzie, but he's a rookie tight end with under eight hundred collegiate receiving yards in his career so. Let's be honest answer. The gross question might welcome, and let's be honest ahead of Jordan Reed would obviously be Dan Arnold the Palestinians who will dominate. Why you bring up Dan art and we're trying to talk about the Patriots. We're talking titans that don't matter. How dare you say the Postman doesn't matter? Just statistically Mike Not in actuality. Thank you not in your life. All right before we get onto the buffalo bills want to today's sponsor Omaha steaks. La Omaha has been making me into a master chef I'm a chef.

STEAKS DOT COM type footballers in the search bar. Are Let's talk about the buffalo bills. Last year they went ten and six big additions. This off seasons to fund digs third round rookie running back Zac Moss they lost Frank Griffin. Although Gordon not retire. Don't be silly. Of course and Josh Allen last year made some strides. This team was. You know we talk a lot about wanting to have an identity in terms of. Running the football. which I think is important for Josh. Allen to have success at the NFL level. You need to be able to run the ball. Because he was a very successful play action quarterback, he was not a successful quarterback outside of the play action, but they didn't run the ball disproportionately last year. They were willing to put the ball in Josh. Allens hands. Especially over the back half of the season and I think there are a lot of high fantasy expectations for this team this year. Lot of players that are just likable in terms of you know Josh Allen being that later round quarterback that we all think. Could you know win when you a week? Because of his rushing prowess or even end up top five on the year? Devon Single Terry is getting. There are question marks around his role in the offense and this defined digs. Digs is so difficult. I found this out last year. He was the. Fourth player since Nineteen Ninety two to have eleven hundred yards on fewer than one hundred targets. He's Angie's very good. I'm mean for is ridiculous, and honestly I could see that exact recipe working for fun digs in this offense again this year where? No the targets aren't what a number one wide receiver demands once should receive the kind of things that makes made the findings unhappy in Minnesota and yet the production could still end up there in terms of total yardage. He's been drafted at the wide receiver twenty six right now. I think I'm just comfortable with him right there. Yeah I think he's a value. There We've talked about this earlier. In the off season. A Lot I was much higher on digs and youtube were, but when push came to shove, I didn't see him as a top fifteen wide receiver, but I do see him as a wide receiver to I think he gets north of one hundred twenty five targets when I look at how this team's GonNa break it up, and and how they're going to play their pace of play at the end of last season picked up dramatically. Huddle a lot of no huddle all of a sudden. They weren't this low volume team. They were a high team and I. Think Look Getting Stefan Digs only helps that you've got personnel to stay out there on the field with three really good wide receivers, and just keep the defense without being able to substitute marched down the field I'm. I'm really excited for what this offense could do and I do think digs will be efficient. And having a volume to be a locked and loaded wide receiver to for me, so at twenty six, I think a slight value, not a huge value, and when it comes to Josh Allen. But he's not the best real life quarterback, but he is a very good fantasy quarterback the, but it's going to be a tale of two halves I. Worry because you start the season I like drafting him. The jets, the dolphins, the rams, the raiders You know it's not. It's not the worst scheduled there, but on the course of the season the bills played the eighth easier schedule of past defenses last year, and they play the eighth toughest in twenty twenty. No offense faces tougher increase in caliber of pass defenses according to Warren Sharp, who that's the one that I trust when it comes to actually looking and strength of schedule because. It goes much much. Deeper includes free agency and things like that so. The course of the season Josh Allen is he's either going to take a major step forward as an nfl passer. Or is is going to be in for some trouble. Mike. Did you want to contribute any thoughts on this? Divine digs discussion. Almost fund digs. Comments are always related to Josh Allens inaccuracy, going down the field, he could throw the ball very very far. Just not seen it be accurate. Last year, on on deep passes. He was the twenty ninth quarterback, which is one spot ahead of Mitchell trubisky? It's also two spots behind David Blau. So David Blau more accurate going down the field, then Josh. Allen debt. That's because when David Blau went down. The Field Kenny, gall was reaching. He's avenue thinks. This adjusted completion percentage, so it's offices out like if it's if the receiver drop the ball that gets knocked out of this. One of the problems that Devon single. Terry may face as the running back here in buffalo is the same situation. We have a Sony Michelle where Voltairian goal line opportunities very easy to have happened to you with Cam Newton Josh Allen. Last year even get him. That's it I mean he didn't get them last year. He didn't. You may not be on the field to get them last year. Devon Single Terry had three carries inside of the ten, and they all came in one game now. He scored like I. Don't know why they decided to go away from him. Meanwhile, Frank Gore last year eighteen carries inside the ten and produced two rushing touchdowns from there. On those those carries, but they just kept going to front door, so I think that's that will be a problem for Devon Single Terry and his ceiling. Because Zach Moss. He can play that role. Allies being set of the bills want. Zach Moss to play the Frank Gore. Role and the way I read into that more. Is that Zach? Moss will be the goal line running back. Single Terry is. He's one of those players that might be really annoying to own. Philip Lindsey Yeah. There's there's a category of place where they're on the field, and it's like first and ten from eighteen, and you know if single Terry doesn't score. On this next run, he may be off the field, and unfortunately that is just you know for a fourth round. Pick right now. He's RB twenty three. They say the one involving the passing game more, but that can be a really annoying fantasy player. Yeah, I, look. If they gave him the opportunities, he would score I remember scouting in college and I I wrote down that. That I think, he'd be an awesome goal line back, which is so weird because he's a tiny undersized two hundred pound guy, but I was I wrote down men I'm GONNA draft him super high, if he goes to the saints or the Patriots a team that will see that and utilize them there. I think if he gets the opportunity, he'll crush, so there is upside there. I think all three of US project him to not get the opportunity, and so if you're not really a pass catching back, and you're not getting goal line. It doesn't matter how good you are. He's going to be great between the twenties and at the end of the day going to disappoint your fantasy roster unless they give him the goal line. He deserves and I. Don't think Zach mosses good enough to. Have that role, and if you're in on Zach, Moss just so you have. Context Games with Devon Single Terry Frank Gore averaged about eleven opportunities per game, so if you're if he is in that role. That's maybe. If you throw in the goal line. The maybe Zach Moss has value, but I. Think he's going to be a running back that if you don't get a touchdown to really bad fancy day, the top part about Buffalo's I think they're gonNA. Be really good team. I think they're a top ten NFL team in here. You have their number. You know the highest running back in fancy dress going at rb twenty three. And so there is to Jason's point. There is upside if things go the right way if they do involve single Terry in the passing game more if he gets to split those goal line opportunities with Zach Moss to keep defenses on their toes. That would be you know you're going to have a guy that finishes above rb twenty three. But there's just more risk. I like running backs on great teams. I like running backs on teams that are gonNA move the football now, are we? New, Jersey my arm. Sorry New York Miami. The Rams in Las Vegas to start the years well, are we overlooking John Brown, who was the number one wide receiver on this team? Last year was pretty solid for fancy full by no Estefan digs is there but in the range of outcomes? A yard you see no positive signs for Brian J Stefan Diggs is eliminated him. Yeah, Best Ball Best Ball. Sure he'll, he'll catch deep pass tickets to a touchdown. That's fine, but the volume is going to shift over to digs. You didn't trade the world. Pay The man as much as you did. He's been working with Josh. Allen. Already I mean this is digs. DIG will have a target market. Share of the team that renders the other is pretty much useless. If you are trying to predict which weeks to start them, I mean call Beasley and John Brown. They'll be on the field. They'll get receptions. They'll have some touchdown, so there'll be a couple of games that are fine, but you're not going to be able to start them on a regular basis. There's only four games last year that John Brown ended up inside the top twenty four. And, that was without the fundings. Beasley demands a Lotta. Targets I. Don't think it'll be easy. He's a player that you could roll out there and hope that's no question about that, but. I think a talented military type of wide receiver yeah. All right. Let's talk about the New York jets somehow shocking to me I know that we watch football, but it was still a surprise to see them in seven nine couldn't believe it myself I mean they came off. I believe a foreign twelve year with todd. Els Wave what the jets were seventy nine. This is saying there's A. There's a certain small I know I know they really were Mike. I'm quadruple. Checking this you can check. Please do because all three in your mind. When one seven jets our own sixteen I believe no. Seven seven and nine. They had to start the season with what Luke Falk back for three games. Was that the? The hand that Adam Gays dealt and yet this team did not show signs statistically of being an improved offense at all they just. Weasel their way to seven and nine. It's a make or break year for Sam. darnold. Yet He is twenty three years old, which is younger than Joe Borough. Is he younger I think you'll know turns twenty-three later this year. I believe that Sam Darnold is younger than Joe I. Will Fact Check Myself? Oh Joe Bureau is twenty three right now. Yeah, December tenth, so yeah it regardless the point. We just turned twenty three there you go, so he is yogurt and so darnold is in a position where we knew that coming out how young he was. Hasn't been great, but this is a player that last year was under pressure. Forty two percent of the time he was dropping back, and he had Jamison crowder to throw the football to Chris Herndon. Wasn't there not a lot of options. Robbie Anderson up and down. These are my excuses. Transpires? Man He was I. Know One hundred with. When. Line thirty first in rushing yards pregame. Thirty first in rushing touchdowns twenty ninth in passing yards per game, twenty seven passing touchdowns, their defense was pretty good I. Have I have wrongly? When I've been looking other players and saying oh. They've got this team. This team and the jets out there that they're playing. The jets defense was was pretty legit. So I think they deserve a lot of the credit and the office of line changes this year. I mean that could change everything for this team if they replaced their head coach why? It could also change nothing. I mean these are still you've made a couple of strides on online, but we haven't seen it carried out, and you're in a tough division in your. You were a really really bad offense last year, and if we're talking about adding Denzel Mims the solution for your offense, while you lose Robbie, Anderson or AIRMAN YEAH! I mean in Frank Gore Barium and Frank Gore have been added to save an offense that finished. You know basically dead last in a ton of off so this they're like. We've seen enough of of Adam as that. He has earned his nickname. But if we seriously see frank, Gore, who I love I love Franco but last year frank or over the second half of the year was two point six a carry in eighty attempts. If we seriously see Frank Gore, displacing levy on bell on the field that to me that will be a new a new low for Adam. Gays unfortunately any fantasy football bet on a New York jet involves the variable of. Stupidity Historical Stupidity This is look. I love your choice of adjectives there I mean. because. I wanted to say idiocy fully accepts stupidity. What dum dum. Just as a coach. Junior sure. There's not a lot of can statistical reasons to counterpoint that dumb is not necessarily the same level of adjective that I used, but it's still appropriate from like projecting these players I. Mean I believe Jamison. crowder was their leading receiver in both in yards, receptions and touchdowns. Chris Herndon a lot I'm taking him late in drafts. We took him in Scotty Fish. I think he will be a player that. You know maybe of all of the offense of pass schedules on this team offers. AC- owner, the best actual. Valter yeah. Like Denzel Men's, but a second round pick okay I'm look man James. Then crowder is. It's a boring pick. I get it. It's not a ceiling pick at all, but one hundred twenty two targets, eight hundred thirty yards six touchdowns. He's not a top twenty four wide receiver for your squad, but you're not drafting in now that he's, he is a very. that he doesn't have the ceiling but I think that his floor is very sturdy and he can be foundational like wide rece. Wide Receiver three for your team I would I would put in Mims into the last pick of the draft category though. For fantasy owners because he could start. From Day One and if you have that guy, say like at the very end address, take a player that you might get. To find out something in week. One I think is in that category of like Remember Wind Marcus Colston was drafted the backdraughts and game one in the NFL. He comes out explodes. In his season, Terry maclaurin, he was, we talked about as low as a last pick, or even after drafts grab. Terry Maclaurin, just in case now interestingly enough. Would you put Perriman there as a last pick in the draft I, mean because you're you're making that. Bet Right. Is it men's? Bouchard Perryman, who starts in that role you? You can do that, but you're talking about Perryman on his fourth NFL team I believe and like. Ceiling wise I would rather take the chance on the guy that was. Number one in college football and contested catches second round draft pick meant to be the future of the franchise. If you WANNA, go Perriman than though Jay that would be very good at the game in James Yeah. It's just do. Are they building the offense around him? It's Jamison crowder. His floor and a ceiling are identical. Things, is it? It's not there's no room to move is just right there? And I just talked about Levy unveil in the bounceback, show his price tag for a a running back that it's going to get that volume and the targets I I'm I'm back in on Levy on Bell I don't think he's going to jump all the way back to being a top eight like a superstar, but he's going to be real solid. The problem with level is again what we brought up with the variables. Gays like I said he could. Low. Like the you know. He looks like he's the delicious like potato salad out on the table and then. There's a fly in it and you didn't know it, and it just looks like the greatest thing and Adam gays he he felt it with flies and it doesn't work out. Of Nowhere Chicago's at all it's. Doesn't like live bell. You doesn't. He didn't WanNa on loves Frank Gore and that scares the crap out of me, but you're right. Value is if things go according to plan love bells such a better runner. Please let saner heads prevail here. Yeah I I would I would still go with the the Melvin Gordon David Johnson of that kind of you. X. Great running back group over Love Bell, but he is. He is a value where he's being drafted. Any other jets related topics. You guys want to get into before we move on. Thank fantasy, wise darnold. The only the only question is is darnold a guy who could who could break out I mean he was. Zik, he's young. You don't believe so I don't know I. Don't believe that they have made enough. They've equipped them with enough weapons to me. I think as possible I think. He, he doesn't have. Like on paper. It doesn't look like elite. Elite skill players around him, but eleven bell still very very capable guy, crowder, safe reception guy, and then the upside of mims plus per Shard, Perryman well lane. It's it's a budget version of a high flying offense, but I can. I can see what Jason talking about. Because I didn't hear him. Say they'll. The one says I can see it. I'm not betting on it. I'm just asking the question, and at the end of all of this all jokes aside because we love to joke about Adam Gates. He's the be whole he, but at the end of the day. All of the questionable options on this team are going to be relying upon Adam gays doing a good job if they want to break out and fantasy, so I'm not GonNa take the shot on darnold. Take the Shah on Mims or pyramid, and I'm not gonNA take the shot on Herndon as my single late round I, mean you know in Scotty fish where you're drafting a bunch of tight ends, and you're going twenty two round sure. I'm not going to bet on these jets. That's my final answer. I definitely came through not betting on the jets drew lock or Sam Darnold for that opportunity. Jimmy G. OR DARNOLD? I would definitely go Jimmy G. OVER SAM darnold Teddy. Bridgewater Sam Darnold. Times down to it yeah. Yeah for those reasons I'm out shark. Tank Miami Dolphins. Five and eleven last year. I believe. They ended the year five and four. Over the last nine games, the really a big turnaround. They tried to not be able to draft to that. They tried their best. It was. A four game with with the bengals where it was like basically, this is. The winner of visit number one bit. Yeah. The loser of this game gets the number. One pick at the dolphins had to like. Come all the way back. The game went into overtime. What. Why are you doing this I? DOUBT IT worked out. They have added so many choices and I. We we need to be careful as fantasy players to not view the Miami Dolphins Defense as a great matchup as plus match I. Don't think it is necessarily, will we? I mean so many teams. You don't really know until the season's going, but they went from a super, young, inexperienced and poor talent a defense to a really high caliber tons of great players all over the place Two hundred and thirty seven million dollars in free agency that's insane and they had so many picks an I thought they had agreed draft. That was one hundred million dollars more than the next highest free agent spending, which was the lions. This is not the team and defense that they had last year. That doesn't mean that that will congealed into a great division challenging defense in year one but it Jason's point. Point is probably the most fantasy relevant one you can make. Don't view the dolphins defense as a match up in the same way that you might have looked at them last year when they finished twenty seventh against the run twenty-sixth against the pass in terms of yards given up to, both it might not be that way this year. What Byron Jones some big pieces Shack Lawson from Buffalo. Vinoy from New England, so they're just sniping people out of their division on top of that and so very interesting this year, a lot of people. Like Brian Florez. I think he's a pretty good head coach. Chan. Daley is taking over an offensive coordinator. This is where things get very interesting for me with Chan Gailey one I mean. It's the reunion, so that's that's always fun of John Galea's back with Ryan Fitzpatrick. And just taking a look back at the history of Chan Gailey with with Ryan. Fitzpatrick 'cause. You've got three years in Buffalo. Where he was the head coach, you got two years in. It at what the jets were Chan, Gailey was the OC and you have like big time, fantasy producers, and you see some tendencies of. Like in Buffalo Remember Stevie Johnson. Remember how good that dude was TV. Yeah Man. Weird out runner right in those three years. Stevie, Johnson with Fitzpatrick averaged one, hundred, forty. One targets the two years. In New York with Fitzpatrick Brandon Marshall averaged one hundred fifty targets last year Devante Parker did what he did on one, hundred, twenty eight, so. There is room for Growth Devante Parker, and then you have the running backs like the buffalo and the jets days there was always a running back over fifty targets. The running back position as a whole was always seen over a hundred targets. There's no Jordan. Howard is not getting that I I know where stories that opportunity target wise then in the Miami back. I don't know honestly it's funny. As Jordan Howard his rookie, year saw fifty targets he he has plummeted since I was learning. That was the learning process. The ordinary targets map. Rita has never seen more than thirty six targets in a year. Year but I'm my point is we have years of evidence of tendencies of play calling from Chan Gailey and there is famous goodness to be had from it, is it? I think the biggest question that if we could answer with one hundred percent clarity, changes everything that changes everything which is who's going to be the starting quarterback, and for how many weeks? Everybody I mean it's definitely going to be Ryan Fitzpatrick to start the season with the shortened offseason, and all that they're going to have a little bit more time. I'd be shocked if week one he is, but I'm starting to think more more. That could end up taking. A Reggie season because if the defense is actually good enough, and the dolphins can win some games. You Know Ryan Fitzpatrick when he came in. You know I remember started with Josh Rosen. And then he came in and relief. They had a week five by, and then he basically was the started from week six on do do you guys know I? Mean this is fantasy and they had a terrible defense won't be the same, but you know where Ryan Fitzpatrick was from week six on for fantasy I. Don't I very excited to hear though he's the quarterback to behind Lamar Jackson. Six on. Yeah, he was no, he was just guns. and. You know obviously. I'm a wet blanket on this quickly, okay? If, this office of line doesn't improve to is taking over due to injury before he'll take over due to skill. You Got Theater fits. You certainly can injure fits magic. He's been heard before, and he can get hurt again that that is the other reality of the situation is that to a might not just take over because of a struggling record? He may take over because he has to. That's the real number Mike Number. That is the real number because I, he he was awesome, or he was in the twenty s, which was pretty rough, so oh Jason. Go. Four guys we also. On Yeah Right. Yeah, and you know what? That movie was Ryan Fitzpatrick on the jets with Chan Gailey all around one good year. One bad you sure, and that's all I'm saying is you do have you have Ryan Fitzpatrick? How many teams he played for. I believe it's Tony Eight. He is coming. For Josh mccown. I'll I'm just throwing the wet blanket on the every time. You expect something from Ryan Fitzpatrick in his entire careers every tire he lets you down that is. A good at surprising, he's not good at delivering on a promise right. I would agree and and you know the thing is, and this is where I was saying. This question affects the rest of the dolphins when I look at Devante Parker. I would be excited about him with Ryan. Fitzpatrick I know that they will throw it whether he's open or not, and give him the chance to make that contested catch I. Don't know that with two would be excited for Preston Williams. Who was actually you know leading the team as a undrafted rookie? Before he got into ob excited about sixty, who was a top tight end over the final part of the year, but as soon as to a makes that switchover. I'm I feel like I'm out across the board on these options for rookie year, too, so in the beginning of the season Maybe you'll feel good about your picks if you go after some of these dolphins, but I worry about the longevity, and the beginning of the season is at New England and then Buffalo, so lou I mean, and then they play. In Week four I at New England where Ryan Fitzpatrick was quarterback number four to finish up the year. Yeah, in Devante, Parker torched who is a gilmore. Perhaps you were talking about week seven, when at Buffalo Ryan Fitzpatrick was the number seven fancy quarterback on the week. Yeah but their defense. And so they had they had to sling around I know it was the dolphins were a lot of fun last year for fantasy this season. You are taking a very dangerous approach to draft these pastures. Let me illustrate something that took place just so that might doesn't move him to number. One right now Fitzpatrick member of the year member before the the is here. When he started the year, and was just absolutely on fire finish amber the Tampa Bay area was number one in week, one number six week to number four in week three, so he's more than capable of that. When he came back and took over the job in week eight through eleven fourteen. Five hundred twenty one. Dang, that's still not better. I Ryan. Fitzpatrick season. I will say this Jason I think it's a little bit difficult to say that every player's going to take a nosedive if they determine to, it should take over because we're sitting here. We've we've talked about the bengals already on his no breakdowns. We've talked about what the what Joe Borough could provide. Rookie, quarterbacks do a little bit more than they've done in the past. Nowadays, if two is capable of taking over, he's a very accurate quarterback. He is a very capable quarterback. He's number five pick in the draft. Those projected to be the number one so but having zero like expectations with with two if he's healthy. Not unreasonable passer, I and millions would believe is a better passer than Joe Borough. I agree that it look he's still going to you. Know Tear. maclaurin was fine last year. Even with Dwayne Haskins so players can overcome that, but I think the difference. Here is the illustration between last year having Andy Dalton in his worst season ever that is when he wasn't benched. Going to Joe Borough versus we had a very good friend Hatrick stretch going to so one is going up. One is going down for these weapons and all of the projections when we're looking at. You know when we're looking at devante Parker breakout. Of the year breakout, all of those things required that Fitzpatrick. Gunslinger mentality. So you know I'm not. I'm not crazy about any of these options, but I do think if I had if if I'm taking a quarterback in a three quarterback league, right? You're to quarterback. You're playing superfly. I'm grandma third. I think almost everybody will draft tour ahead of fits magic. Assuming that, he'll get the start at some. I would actually draft. Ryan Fitzpatrick I in the hope that he gets to continue playing at the level. He played last year while to a learns. Shot are you taking it on Jordan Howard, or are you taking it on Brita? If I, have to have one I would go Howard I. Find Myself Less and less inclined. Talked about he's basically the last starting running back in the the ADP, but then when I get there I'm like I don't want that. The thing I like about taking Howard over Breda is if you look historically Kyle Shanahan's success with the plug and play running back after running back after running back after running I. Mean This was a guy that cal and turned Ryan terrain into a great player. Okay? Breeders leaving that plug and play system in most players leave it. Don't succeed Jordan Howard. Already left Chicago to succeed in Philadelphia at least kind of from A. Team switching standing. We've seen Jordan Howard. That's why lean that direction. Do we finally get Jordan Howard with forty receptions. Chan Gailey, on three, hundred, sixty five. I would I would take Howard as well. Yeah, I think that the. Jordan, Howard, or Sony Michelle late drafts. I would go Sony. Yeah. Probably Sony but I don't I. Don't know how the Backfield is GonNa. Break Down Between Howard Breda. There's some talk about Breda extension. then. They decided to delay it in Miami so that could change my. View of the situation, but right now I kind of like Howard. So tough scheduled to start the year though I mean. Jordan Howard gets to go to New England and then face Buffalo, and then face Jacksonville and Seattle so Jacksonville's Nice Yeah Yeah Yeah. There's one. In Jacksonville though all right any other thoughts on the dolphins I think it's going to be. A better year for them, but that might equate six ten in this division. Who Do you have winning this division? Let's close it out with Patriots. I have the Patriots winning I really WanNa to go buffalo but I'll take buffalo. I think with Cam. The Patriots will win, but buffalo is right there with them I think there's two really good teams in this division in to. Not So really good team so I I think we should actually go back. We didn't really talk about my Kosinski very much. Who is a guest shirts? He's athletic monster. He's one of. Mine and Andy's favorite later round guys to really break out. Jason I can't remember. I'm there with you I? Just worry about the quarterback. and. He had a lot better numbers. Sorry, go ahead. Mike he's he lines up in the slot and he fits so many of the of the check boxes that you want from a late around tight end of. Draft capital. A very very athletic lines up in the slot like they he kinda already had many breakout and and people are still drafting him like that didn't happen or they're just afraid of. Preston Williams because the Mike breakout did align very noticeably with when Preston Williams? Left the year with an ACO yeah, Jack Nine on when pressing Williams was out of the way Mike Koseki last year was the titans seven? He was very good, and so I I do think with the lack of pass catching running backs. I think those three options. If if it's magic, is the quarterback. Will all be able to be good enough? I just worry about win to comes in. All right that'll do it for today's show when I think pristine auction.
