The Seattle Mariners give Zach Vinci the job with their California minor league ball club. Sports was for its ten and 40 after the hour, northwest news radio. The teacher, who was shot by a 6 year old student in a Virginia classroom earlier this month, intends to file a lawsuit against the school board, according to her lawyer. Here's ABC's Pierre Thomas. Teacher Abby zu Werner at home, trying to heal with a bullet steel launch in her chest, fired by that 6 year old student. The road to full recovery will be long. Two weeks after the attack that shocked the nation, the Newport News teacher is breaking her silence through an attorney, accusing the school of failing to stop the violence despite multiple warnings. Three times, school administration was warned by concerned teachers and employees that the boy had a gun on him at the school. But the administration could not be fathered. That attorney laying on a disturbing timeline, saying it was there Werner who first warned the school, the boy had threatened to beat up another child that morning. They didn't call security. They didn't remove the student from the classroom. After a tip about a gun, another teacher searched the boy's backpack at our later, but found nothing. But when the teacher warned an administrator, the gun could be in the pocket, her concerns were allegedly dismissed. The administrator downplayed the report from the teacher and the possibility of a gun saying and I quote. Well, he has little pockets. A half an hour later, it's a winner's attorney says a third teacher reported a student who was crying because the 6 year old had threatened him with the gun during recess. But again, no action. Finally, there were no claims another concern, staffer asked to search the boy, but was to died. Told, wait the situation out because the school day was almost over. I mean, this later police say the boy opened fire with a handgun, he brought from home. Female victims, she's been shot in the abdomen as well as a through and through into the hand. The parents of the 6 year old suspect say he suffers from an acute disability and claimed the shooting occurred during the first week, he attended class without a parent. But one parent of a child in the classroom tells ABC News, she's not aware of parent chaperones being allowed in class and one substitute teacher who led the same class back in the fall, says there were no parents marked present. There was not even a teacher's aide in the classroom. Overnight, a decisive move. The motion carries 5 to one. The school board voting to oust the superintendent. Sometimes out of tragedy, it comes opportunity for growth for change. In response to news of the lawsuit, the boy's family attorney has released a statement saying they continue to pray for the teacher and that they wish her a complete and full recovery. But that teacher is demanding answers and accountability. ABC's Pierre Thomas reporting, it's two 14.

Let's talk about the new coach in Carolina, shall we? His name is Frank Reich. He has taken over a Panthers organization that thought maybe they would go with Steve Wilkes as the headman, but Frank Reich is taking over after 5 years with the Indianapolis Colts. He was also the very first quarterback in Carolina Panthers franchise history started the first three games. Now that team does need a quarterback as he is taking over in Carolina the first head coach to be hired, and we'll see what happens from there. The jets, 70 offensive court entered Nathaniel Hackett, he is comes from Denver where he was fired by the Broncos this past season after just half a year as a head coach. He was with Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers in 2019 to 21, Aaron Rodgers may be on the trade market. We'll have to wait and see if he ends up with the jets, but that's just fuel some speculation as Hackett hired by the jets today. Capitals are home tonight, penguins in town, the two teams tied at 56 points atop the wild card standings, Tom Wilson, no go this morning, Nicholas Bach from TJ oshie did skate and Alex Ovechkin was back on Saturday after missing one game, a caps have lost two stray wizards off till Saturday.

I mean, some of the low earth satellites, including International Space Station, are about 350 miles up, but this is one of the most discovered asteroid approaches that we've ever had because there could be other asteroids that we never did discover that could be closer. But this is definitely definitely close. Now one particularly perhaps unnerving part of all this, this asteroid was only discovered

"I'd just go back to my buddy frank reich in indianapolis i think he had a couple of weeks ago yet a fourth and one on his own like thirty seven yard line on one for it and got it and you know and people are wondering now. Are those reckless ways of doing things. You know all the analytics tell you go for it. Go for gopher go for it especially when you have quality quarterbacks that you trust so i had aaron rodgers. That'd be going all the time to which made the decision not to go for a last year even that much more interesting. Yeah i mean. I think the situation towards the end of that game though too was just absolute made zero sense to antibody at the time but last night last night. Yeah i mean it was the same exact situation while not the same. They were closer to the goal on last night and You know again. They took so much heat for that. Afterwards you know there was no way he was doing it. And by the way the way aaron rodgers played that whole thing last year was was a little bit much little boy decision. Yeah well it's not my decision that whole thing and the politics of it all and all that crap. Well it wasn. Is this as you probably did want to go. They had three previous. I don't want to rehash this whole thing. But i just want to remind you. They had three previous plays where they asked him to throw the ball and all three wearing complete the art. So you're playing and again you're living in the moment so in your living in the moment a completely different circumstance. But i'm sure that matt leflore learn something from that issue. Last year that gave him the impetus the gulf war. It last night and look what happened. They didn't make it and they should have lost this game last night. Yeah no absolutely. You're right award for a complete total mental lapse. Then yes that's absolutely by the way you know. If if if you know if you don't throw the interception they're gonna kill all the type of game going overtime yeah. I know so by the way if a field goal would have been kicked last night the over would have happened either one of those times. That exact scenario is this scuttle butt comes from all over from yesterday from this morning. All right so i will tell you coming up next. There was huge scuttle but in the building a shouting match.

"Good news from indianapolis where quarterback carson wentz and guard quentin nelson will return to practice this week on a limited basis to nelson nelson both coming off foot surgery in early august holtz head coach. Frank reich had this to say about his quarterback last week in the perfect world. We have a really good idea after that third preseason game and carson would get to work two weeks going into the first game. That's the perfect world. The nets perfect world is the only gets the work of game week. I don't know if that's going to happen would be week to week. Three is still some mystery here regarding the timeline on carson wentz. What do we make of the recovery. Time line here. It seems to be going pretty well. Kimberly what are you hearing. In terms of carson wentz in the colts yeah it was somewhat surprising just because the initial time was five to twelve weeks and you know when i asked people around the league. Oh carson may be back in practice. Look at this. they're like. Oh is that an indictment on the other guys. I don't think that's the case. But i think india's a very delegates only because we've seen frank reich Gold took in my opinion go above and beyond in solidify this carson's team then and we. I love nick foles. But this is carson's team gotta hear this nicole stock and it just seemed a little extra and when you think about how carson has been described by people in league as far he needs to feel security needs to feel wanted. He needs to know that this is his team. The colts clearly are doing that. So this tie him being back at practice so soon you want you wanna make sure that he's not rushing himself back before he needs to be because this is a team that could go really far

"But it's the preseason two point of emphasis so we know every year those of us Including the fans who we all watch football we all love football and whatever form preseason regular season postseason and when the officials have appointive emphasis. And you even sniff that line in a preseason game especially the first preseason game they're gonna throw the flag and because it's a point of emphasis and it doesn't really it's not a regular season and they wanna put the league on notice put coaches and players on notice that guys we told you. We're gonna emphasize this. Hey maybe this was kinda questionable. Maybe it wasn't but we just wanna make a point here. I kinda get that i do. I agree with the call. It doesn't even matter whether i agree with the call or not. But i kind of get what they do. I've just seen it done for many years especially in the first preseason game. It's gonna happen. No exactly right. I was talking about that the other day. But do you. Then make it a point of emphasis to say exactly what you said to your team to say. Hey that's what that was in preseason week one let's make sure you know week one when it all matters in the win loss record for now. Eighteen week seventeen game regular game that we don't do that right or no. No i do without like you said. So here's what. Here's i'll tell you. This is one of those things. I can tell you exactly what i said that the team at least i got. We know this. Appoint appoint assist. Hey how we do things here. we don't wanna talk. We don't need to talk not we're not that that's not how we do things the way we do. Things is all this juice energy. We're directing towards our teammates and to the success that we're having and you know we don't need to talk now that was. I wasn't saying that against benny. 'cause i thought he was. I thought it was fine. But in general hey let. This is a point of emphasis. Let's not let this. We don't want a fifteen yard penalty. We all know that. Let's let's celebrate. Like i wanna appropriately celebrate each other and each other success as a team but the talk around league and i agree with this. I i really don't think there's room for taunting i don't wanna taunting by taunting. I mean i love. I love the fire of competition. I i wanna i want to dominate the opponent i mean i wanna dominate the opponent in every way physically mentally on the scoreboard. I wanna embarrass them. I've i want you know we wanna to destroy the opponent's we we wanna shut every opponent we wanna score fifty and and have them not score any but we don't have to taunt i just bad that's a taunting is as some people would say it's not it's it doesn't look good on anybody. I just. it's not a good look. It's not a good thing for young kids to see. I just don't think that's what this game is about coach.

"Different but the process will be the same and in terms of you know Head coaches in the nfl. Obviously you know everybody who's I've met Wants to control everything. Control freak is definitely the words that i use. Who who was the one explain to you that it's a five to twelve week timeframe and and walk you through that process coach. I appreciate that the stated like that. No i mean basically obviously as a team you know we. We actually don't want to over promise and under deliver naturally want to be vague vague in our answers. Everybody knows that but those are the. That's the range that the two guys in the country who've done thousands of these surgeries Had is fall in in that range so it is what it is In for us right to go into all the particulars of what makes a twelve week case. Or what makes a five week case. i'll continue to sap sat around here. I don't mind saying. I think. I hope we're closer to the front end in the better end of this range and With how surgery went and talking to the dock after the surgery and what he saw in the surgery very encouraged varying curve by talking to our trainers very encouraged talking to carson quentin so You know we'll just continue to go down. That road frank reich indianapolis head coach here on the rich eisen show. What else makes you very encouraged. Who else has been flashing. We're not talking about because we're so focused on the five to twelve weeks for your quarterback and your stellar offensive lineman. Who are we not talking about. I'll give you the floor on that. You know you can. You can talk about a lot of guys. Really you know on offense of a lot of buzz around here. As i'm sure you've heard his his rookie receiver mike strong. You know big man who is who can Can elevate who has really good hands. Run very good ralph's. Two games not too big for him. He's looked really good. That are whole receiving core right in this last night. I game or are young receiving core. They really all show themselves a bunch of plays down the field and And obviously both jacob. Nsm manager had had good games. And as a whole i thought our defence play very well in the first preseason game lot of lot of good things a lot of those young players stepped up and play good football. Pass my michigan man pay. I've been trying to hold off on just going straight back. Yeah he's back on the field you know. Unfortunately he sprained ankle. You know about a few days before this first game. But he's back on the practice field now happy to be there and You know before. He sprained his ankle. He was looking phenomenal We feel really good about his development has progress as a young player Feel like he's gonna mako an early impact force. And then just somebody who's in terms of impactful and a great story for those of us in in the media to talk about guys who who are not very well known when they drafted in the league and then they make the most their opportunity and then get paid is darius leonard. What can you give me a story about when you first were either you know introduced exposed to his heart and style and what he brings to all of that on your behalf and the organization's behalf and between the lines in the locker room. I just would love a good terrorist. Leonard story from you. You don't yeah so crop. Don't have one story but to me. It's a very easy answer. And that is it's the cute is the cumulative effect of how is all the time like when you see him when he might That's how he is all the time. I mean he it. It's never off. This guy is always on. He is guys so much juice and he brings so much energy to the practice field to the meeting room walking down the hall. He's he's just he's just a great leader. You know he he. He has a way of elevating whatever. Space he's occupying. If you're within striking distance you're going to feel his energy and what's not to like about that. Why who want love this guy and then oh yeah by the way. He's one of the best defensive players in the. Nfl makes play. He can do everything he can rush the passer he gets. He turns the ball over. He can get interceptions and then he's going to have a hundred some tackles every year. I mean what. A great draft. Pick by chris ballard I can't say enough about darius so happy that we were able to get his contract on and get an extended and That was a big deal for us and for the city. Does he remind you of anybody who played with or against in your day. Oh man how terrible question. sorry. But i'd love to know i'm just curious a combination of but but maybe nobody i can i can safely say. I've played with and coached guys. Who have a lot of juice and have a lot of energy and i i can say darius has more than anybody. I know. milk kid hands down. It's not it's just hands down. No i remember having a conversation. You were talking about philip rivers earlier. Yup and We were having a conversation. This all season. Just kinda reminiscent about last year and that was that was one of philip rivers talking points like man. I'm never gonna forget that. What an amazing what. A great team like great locker room and just talking about darius and the first time you met darius and then just how. He was As i just was taught him and just always liked that like he was waiting. He was waiting to see him. Tone it down. And that's just that moment next came. Neither is phillip. Sometimes you know. That's why why he appreciated they. They have a connection having an inability. Sometimes tone it down and speaking of tony down before i let you go So much being talked about that play in your preseason game with benny lemay getting a flag for staring down for just a split second One of the many people who are unable to tackle him and And is this is a concern for fans in a lot of players are a little pissed off to be honest with you because you know. Here's a kid who's who's trying to make your team right. He's trying to also prove prove point. And you might have lost it for a split nanosecond but the outcomes a flag because there's a new emphasis on on what the corner of the giants. John mero who's been in the league along time as part of the competition because he's sick of all of the talking and i wonder what you think of this and what you might have spoken your team about after that coach frank. Yeah i mean you're right. It was a nanosecond. But here's the thing i mean. I really don't think it's that big of a deal. I actually think i'm of glad people talking about it. I like. I like when people talked about our team..

Oh yeah and then me coming over and talking about being the fastest. Because i know that they knew when they felt you run. The here you gratin. Arcus mother coaches. Because i took a wrong. Took a misstep in their walk through and they know whenever you do eventually get to score you want. You're going to walk through and chirp everybody in the cafeteria. Who goes first fastest. We i honestly believe that. A like if you're a specialist training camp is like it's a big duty for you to just some sort of fo- energy everybody is dead. Everybody it is terrible. I don't know how you got now. Listen not the hardest job on earth. There's other jobs that are much more important. Much more serious. I get it but in. Nfl training camp. Why you see so many guys up camp go fucking doing this and retiring is because just that constant especially with like your livelihood on the line the pressure and every h is like so much install. Even if you're you're three or four or five years in you always have new coaches common different schemes. But even if you've been this scheme few years each day they keep putting more and more volume in like you have a meeting at nine o'clock at night or go till ten in though install what they're going to put in the next day what you're going to practice in the morning so you're like oh man. When my first time. I can even walk in just think like i'm not trying to get to a practice of her meeting. I gotta make get back to my room and figure out exactly what i'm doing because i show up we're gonna pads on and we're going to be doing what we talked about. But also you gotta get rehab in the night before and if you don't get rehab and you're cheating yourself getting find your team. Hey cheat yourself to team. We're getting fined for that. So that nine to ten o'clock install does the ten fifteen ten thirty if you're getting nicer bags or whatever then get back to your room. Ten forty five one. Say hello to somebody. Maybe there's eleven o'clock oh now you have to learn what you're gonna do at eight. Am tomorrow morning. And if you don't by the way you're going to get exposed it is going to be violent and it is going to be bad out there. That's why you know when. I was either booze in at night or smoking or whatever i always try to come in and lift the spirits atta all you guys go one on ones eight. Am the more all man all right. Hey you're gonna fucking kill it tomorrow. Dude get out of my fucking. I'll be out there more out your your man i will. It was i always. Have you know the best statesborough debating people. But i felt like you know eight to nine hundred ten. I'd get them going a little bit. But i think it's beneficial af. I was the head coach. I'd want to bring you in to to be that guy as annoyed as it might be. I think it's needed okay. There's a little bit of. There's people probably do act the way i act. That is knowing. And i understand that. There has been previous concerns from teammates of mine that was potentially going to act like somebody they had experienced in the past to call jackson. Just perfect to call jackson the perfect example of everything that i am as a team. The the miserable old cleveland brown linebacker had the old school. Like kevin greene type. Helmet probably seventy five concussions. At his position he joins our team. Smoking cigars old miserable vet basically came into our team though was instant leader instant guy. His locker was right next to mine literally. It was two down one time like six thirty. Am maybe day one of my right here. We go to best fucking day of all time today or whatever. Yeah it gives me fist-bump beliefs next morning. Guess what to. Hey well. I think we're going to be doing but today they're saying better than fucking yesterday. Let's go to kuala coach. So then i think it was like day three where i came in and he was looking down. I think i gave him like a little pop on the shoulder or something you know how we feel in his this every fucking day. That's what he said to me. Is this every fucking del everyday. Well i'm gonna be right here. All right we'll fucking right and we up and ever since then we've been good friends but that is the enemy of. I think whenever you just kick a ball you should also potentially add some other things that locker room mine was the ability to bury anybody in cornhole. And hopefully lighten the mood every once in a while. There was some bad days though i was not. Maybe necessarily degraded teammate. Out there but i tried my best. I think big training camp training camps thinks we have to remember that whenever we're getting quotes from anybody during training camp things that are said. Training camp stinks. But it's very very vital. I hope the fucking colts put a team together. Let's get to a break. aj quinton nelson. That scares me irreplaceable. Dude i think ryan kelly.

Does that kind of stuff just genuinely come to you or like you still have to go out and kind of like fine guys. Do you feel like at this point. Everyone's trying to fight in the ufc. Like is it a lot. Easier to to find guys like sugar. Sean guys who are going to become huge superstars. No so we still have. You know shows like you've ultimate fighter and Contender series and what it does really is introduced as so many people to these young up and coming stars these guys basically when they come off the shows are already you know stars in the making but we also go out and look at talent. We cultivate talent. Like if we see people in china or india or mexico or puerto rico or some of these different places that we think has potential we will fly them out to the united states. Put them in a really good camps and let them train with some of the best fighters in the world so that they can get to that next level. We've been doing that for like twelve years. Yeah i think the fights and the fighters are such good stories. I mean the stories that come in sugar sean is. He's come on our show a lot. We're big fans of he has that just swagger it seems like and that's the fight game right you guys. The fight game is in. That's i assume in that room. Do a lot of in the matchmaking. Do you take into accountability. Like all right. Here's some buzz. Here's a act. Think we cleanest bliss then it just got a bug you can send twice water. Ufc flyswatter. that'd be fantastic. When you're trying to put these cards together like knockout power you think about. Hey this one has a lot of history behind like how do you go about in. How much is like the promotion of part of it. Because i feel like the whole world gets invested whenever we're talking shit to each other whether the guys like to do it or not or the girls like to do or not. It feels like that is just good for business. Do you think about that. You guys promote that or is that just kind of how the business runs and eli's has no we don't we go based off skill Rankings and things like that. Listen if you get a guy like conor mcgregor who obviously can fight. He's got good punching power and things like that and if he has it back there to become a big star. That's just that's just a huge bonus but we don't. We don't really look at that when we're making bites how d. s. five rounds you you had to think i this guy who put we got. Es in phoenix. What he's asking fucking five around there. I mean that had. That was a home run. That was a home run fight. And i think you almost ended that thing exactly how everybody thought it was going to go there. Obviously i think the other diaz is getting back in there. How good for fighting back guy. Yeah no the diaz brothers are definitely fun and they have been bring a completely different fan base in when they fight. It's fascinating and people just love these guys and from their press conferences to the way into the fight itself People are fascinated by the brothers dropped marijuana testing for immediately after the press conference where picks timing just worked out on the ice. Good luck this week and good luck with all your fights and good luck with finding in congratulations finding like a blueprint for if the world ever stops. You got this own arena.

Having drinks at townhall. Yeah yeah yeah. What do you wanna talk about josh. Hey i just wanted to talk about carson. Wentz in this star people anomaly. We really think the call while. He's out for five to twelve weeks hey developmental. Anomalies with quinton thuc nelson. All right. it's not with carson wentz josh. Geez can you listen to frank right. This is giving incredible answers. Josh my bad my bad. I thought it was a good thing. Yeah it was. I guess he had a bone that popped out of nowhere that had been injured in highschool. And now they're getting removed. They said it was a clean surgery. They said he should be back well. Now who knows how accurate that is but he said normally earlier on the projections if the surgery goes clean which he reiterated like three to four times that it did so josh i think he's backed by the season. Thanks for the call over there in cleveland. Oh hi i believe around some issues with phones. People are on then they get hung up on. That is not me. i don't believe that's made. It seems like that is a tech issue. Okay speaking of issues. I'm just reading this now. I did not know. This was the case because i was in a couple of meetings today and then this morning i woke up to golf second round of the year. Not bad still one matt. Stafford hit his helmet at the end of practice and left. Oh yeah This via kevin modesto modesto's either rams got a scare when quarterback matthew stafford hit his throwing them on a helmet near the end of practice. Stafford left the field with some rap but holding his helmet with the hand. I don't know anything yet. Coach sean mcvay said. I think you'll be okay for the quarterback. What the hell is going on. That is one of the best quotes that you'll hear it most training camps you highlighted on hard knocks whenever the guy who taught haley and somebody got into it about the defense being close to the quarterback in todd. Haley said in the nfl. You don't go near the quarterback then corner hotel. Somebody's blocking i. Don't that is not what we're talking at the moment. That is a real thing too because look how much money they put the entire future of the franchise on the line for matthew stafford get moved out of detroit to la. Now they got rid of doff in a massive contract but also numerous first round draft picks. All you need is one person to say. Oh i would have made this sackler showcase this on film and one no look pass from matthew stafford in that bubble that ratio that barrier that you would hope that he's around every nfl quarterback but inevitably doesn't happen in every single play. Because that would be crazy to think that it would but it should In bangor what happens. He breaks right there so at least what six seven weeks three first rounders you gave up and everything done because guy is too close to the goddamn quarterback in that is what you hear offense approaches. Say basically in practice. But it's not as easy as you stay away for quarterback. There's obviously push people pushing on the back of defensive lineman somebody maybe trips and falls you get in there but that is of utmost important. Don't get anybody out here especially as our stars even though it seems like this is potentially happening around the league. Yeah you hope. He's okay but i think they're probably thinking. Hey we're gonna be alright if he is out six seven weeks. 'cause we got we got the wolf. Did we hadn't backup quarterback we've got the wolf. We we already saw what he did last year in the playoffs with her. Then you know the neckbrace and came back and damn near played the next week and then guys players star so yeah and i think they did trade away. All this first renders for matthew stafford de. Maybe if he doesn't start he can back up the wolf. Exactly jared goff. Wasn't that good of a backup. That's what they're saying. He was standing off all by himself. Get remember alaskan. Awful by himself wasn't really helping him out of here. I broken thumb for matthew. Stafford is basically paper. Il plays merely a flesh wound. Throwing hand though. That's tough. Stay away from the quarterback joining us now is a man who has taken.

"That happen right away. Like things could change a little bit. But he doesn't seem swayed in the slightest. It's okay part of the game. We'll be okay. These guys are going to be fine. Let's get to work. It's not over yet in him. And chris have a great relationship from what i've been told that chris and frank love each other. I don't know how you couldn't. They're both massive football dudes but still gwen nelson. Let's hope that that developmental anomaly is as clean as carson wentz his bone that hopped out of its little hibernation since high school. I guess it's just been gonna knock in there somewhere and then all of a sudden it just says you know what carson looks like. You're getting your life back together. Looks like you're having fun. Playing football looks like this team's going to go on a run for you This is a whole new world in that thing. That was just nestled somewhere in his foot since fucking high school. It's so many so many incredibly aggressive foot movement. Yeah ago as soon as he gets his life back together training camps. Remember me go in there and get it and they said it went clean but five weeks it sounds good to know for us though for preseason button that jacob recent and the boys are going to be out there for quite some time at least a half he said at least half jacobson war. Maybe we'll see. I mean after i might be live. Bet big alive. Kids doing yeah. We should a followed up. Maybe with how is jacob. But instead you ask the question that i wanted to ask or after you like you ask the question that was very much needed was what tells you the carson wentz is back even if he gets healthy and it was him saying like an or a basically you could see how maybe he had lost that in philadelphia where he lost his kind of mo-jo lost his mojo. And if he's coming out here just skipping around he said the guys had to felt it like the guys had to fill carson out there. That's huge for the team. I'm bummed. we're gonna miss it for at least two weeks. He's gonna lay down and watch. He's probably watching this show now. He's watching films course. Game plants go to josh.

"I've been around fights. Obviously i've seen flights but it felt like some teams are much more likely to fight than other teams. Is your team team that fights or no. I don't wanna team. I don't wanna fighting. You know like you're saying there's that whole school mentality that is not a true training camp and at least one brawl. Yes that's counted the air. That i you know i grew up in you know. You're kinda has generation behind what or maybe a fall generation beyond. But you know that that's kind of that's one mentality we had a little sperm show day. But what what. I've talked about with our players. Is i expect our leadership to our leadership to to really lead the way they're When things get heated let. Let's have that intensity we want the same intensity that's going on before the end of the play but when the play is over i expect yard leaders to be able to keep control of their position groups of things. Don't ask hey. I want to let you know that if jacobson some happens you now i'm not saying there. Well maybe just gets a little mental block or something. Third quarter approve season game. Or whatever just know that. I've been working on it and i still. Wha y looked at the art rights so yeah. I mean look at who you know what i'm saying if you're a guy you're done and you've always been one that put that on the ticker your guy your guy and you've always been one from head coach frank right as of you by the way sir. It's been an honor to watch you coach. Good luck with this team building it with the absences and still covert lingering. Around by the way. Happy to see your okay. Hey happy with everything. Lingering and everything happening good luck. Can't wait to watch The team that you put on the field on sundays. Mondays wednesdays thursdays saturdays. I can't wait to see the team. thanks for us. Meetings for us. Today got walked through. You get getting after it in the gym. What do you got the rest of the day. I think. I just got some meetings coming up time. I'll walk through this evening so a lot of work to do yet. All right good luck out there head coach. Franklin thank you joe. He's a man so the dealing cards thing so you know. I was the emergency quarterback like a lot of people think that was a joke but frank reich was the assistant quarterback coach. He my first couple of years had to come out with me. Go through the place. Basically get the quarterback center exchange center quarterback shane's thing right the ducks cycle thing in the handing off of the whole thing like he was the one that had to develop me. And then clyde christianson. Right i write this. What we're gonna do dice right right than go through the whole thing. So then i take the fundamentals that i learned from frank into try to apply it to like ten plays or whatever with quite christianson and i think those two were just. I don't want to say like practicing there. Think i think frank reich was practicing his coach. he's a. I'm not going to get the opportunity to coach. What is the equivalent of a seventh eighth grader. Never again because i'm gonna be so he was really like it was i think he was really invested. I feel like we put in very good. Fifteen twenty minutes after walk-throughs and everything like that. He finally broke through whenever he told me it was like dealing cards. You know he found out. I was a gambling person. He's like you know you like you know how like you you you probably do. But you know somebody. That's exactly the motion that you should be doing. My fucking okay. I can deal cards fucking deck. Like he's a good guy he was always a good guy. That's what i was excited when we got the head coaching gig. In if you recall at the press conference. I asked him about the josh mcdaniels. Strictly because of my relationship that i had with him that i could ask that but his answer was just like as perfect as you could ever imagine in. I mean there was a chance. I guess that could go a bad way or whatever They wanna use her clips. Yeah you can't by the way. I'm in the middle of my show. You know that you see that happening as you probably got an email us. The cliff's we're very lucky and thankful that frank stop by but whenever he answered and said like the backup role was always good for me. He had the biggest comeback. I think in college football history then. He got the biggest comeback in nfl history. Whenever he was with the bills. He's always just been that guy in the backup quarterbacks. We all see dan lobski now. And you'll you hear like most quarterbacks go on tv. They know all the offenses that's their job is to be another quarterback coach basically but they also have the confidence to have those conversations with the star order. It's a very. It's not an easy roll. You're like almost a diplomat as well as a potential teammate and coach and a set of eyes and exercise. It's a tough position normally those who get into the coaching ranks. Pretty well and i think that's why people are calling for lobski couple years ago or whatever. Dan said no i got to get on tv and say bad things about it sure. Yeah which teach their own. But it's it's interesting. Because i think if you're a colts fan like his temperament and everything like that he's the perfect guy for a situation like this because i feel like if you do have a coach who's like a little more emotional and everything and you have these three big injuries..

"Yeah i i think it will be back any day now. at we're good. I mean you know we talk about here. We got a little bit adversity early on. And you know the big thing that we talked about. Just don't overreact. Just don't overreact. And the way the way to not overreact is just to stay focused on the mission at hand and get better. Every day become become a team in training camp that puts the work in creates the substance right that the foundation to have a great season. And that's what we believe. We're doing i. Are you by the way incredible speechwriter. Nowhere just came out of nowhere. I think a big part of training camp franken. You backup quarterback. Tom in superstar so beloved by the locker room i think a big part of it is building that camaraderie. Like what type of team you're going to be like. How are you going to be you saying. Hey we're facing some adversity here. Earlier is obviously good for relationships. Everything like that is carson quentin and darius. Are they going to be around. Are they going to be like how. How is that whole process going to be. Are they still going to be felt as you build the framework of what this year's team's going to be about Like in both carson in clinton's case pat what happens is you know. I talked to carson's morning for thirty minutes on fallen we're talkin plays we're talking. He's won the game plan. He's wanting to game plan already He was in normal mental mode. So clinton will be the same way you know. There's a few days basically. It's two weeks of do nothing you know other than he'll and then start to react process but i mentioned this yesterday. Some of the guys like with both of these guys you know they should be doing walk-throughs in a few weeks so You know maybe two three four weeks so you know maybe if this ethic if everything goes perfect i mean. We don't know how it's going to go but we're optimistic around here. So if you know they they rest for two weeks they start the rehab process started. Doing walk-throughs guessing. Good mental wraps bone start. You know whether it's week one week to week three however it plays out. Were ready to go. Well i mean that is a great narrative a great mission and if the indianapolis colts fan saw carson wentz at walk through three weeks from now i think our guys go head coach. Obviously the stuff going on with carson stinks pretty optimistic about him. But what have you seen him so far. That kinda reminds you of the guy you had seen in thinking maybe like okay. Last year is just an anomaly. This guy is back. This is the guy no well. I'll tell you one thing that's several but to let me. i'll just point to two things one. Is you know in his second practice. You know yet phenomenal practice. Day to for him and you know it's just everyone saw everyone saw making plays downfield doing all kinds of crazy things. Good think during the easy thing tried to hard things right and making place but the other thing that is important to me. And when we signed him i remember. I was interviewed by somebody. And i said colts fans let me. Just say something when this guy walks on field you're gonna feel his energy but he has a different vibe about him when he walks on field like you just feel it and and and i know i know the gosh felt that i could feel that here and he's got the right mindset. He knows this all about the team. This is not all about carson wentz. This is all about the right five this team but but we need his energy we. He's got energy. I mean he's not only a great player but he's got leadership energy that you just look at it and feel our fans are gonna feel out telling you when you when pat when you see him. Walk out in the field in warm ups. You're gonna say he's he got. He didn't right here in the office. And as soon as literally as soon as i saw i was like how this is. He reminded me of luck almost with his stature. He is so large. I can't wait to see him. Come back another quarterback. You had history with and i'm not sure if he saw he cut a promo yesterday at a press conference. Nick foles made me want to run through a wall and obviously he had great things to say about you and about carson situation but he obviously reference You know you in carson and affiliate offense. That was kind of titled around him in obviously mortenson is reported. There's there's been. Nobody reach out to the senior veteran quarterback world including folds or anything like that. But when you hear something like that talk about how good of a coach you were and how you made. Somebody's life so much better. That has to feel better than the biggest comeback in the history of the nfl. That you lead. What two times or whatever is that. The type of that has to feel damn good to hear was coach. You know it's about is about. The relationship with the players and in this game is about the players. We everybody knows that and you know as a coach when you feel like you can just help a little bit. you know. We know it's ninety nine percent then but if you can just help a little bit. That can go a long way. So i got all the respect in the world for net. He is not only at one of their. I mean he's a clutch player now and a big time player. he's even better person He's a great teammate. And i've had like. I did see the clip off this evening clip. Someone showed it to and he's telling the truth when he said we haven't talked. We're friends will always be friends. And he's a chicago bear. We're focused here on the guys that we have and we're going to keep working to keep going down that road and We're excited with the guys we have. And i'll always be nick foles fan. I think i think he's a great player on a great person. When you both retired you can sit back and enjoy. What was a magical season from the sounds of it for nick. Foles last question here from a new england patriots fan coach. Go pats around. The guys thinks the guy stinks coach. Don't worry about it you never know around. The league has guys pads coming on. You know someone in carolina got hurt and then there's bras going on in new york. Is there like a blueprint to kind of be competitive while also keep the players safe for you. Just kind of hoping for the best. Yeah no i mean it's it's both there's a little bit of a feel but you do of you know. We're looking at the numbers more science. We got a million people analyzing data every day I looked at this printout every day after practice Sometime pad if you ever can bring me on the show. Maybe i in my career bring a can bring one of these crinoids review that it's an. It's an insane amount of information and About the players and this is about how to keep players health and there's all kinds of things that we look at. We're always analyzing that. But let me just say this. I mean i'm a little bit old school. In the fact at the end of the day you gotta practice. You gotta go hard. There's no substitute for that. We're gonna try to take care of the players the best we can I think our guys not. I think feola we adapt just as needed. But you know. Injuries are just part of the game. What about the fights. You guys have a lot of fights in your practices or now. There's some cultures that are it's much different. For instance i guess carolina. Panthers brawl was a big because there was a shot to the head and then for the giants. Daniel jones was at the bottom of a pile. That's your franchise and there's a full fight happening afterwards and everything like that..

"I'm coaching again. Instead of handling all the other bullshit. Just like jason garrett going over the giants immediately become their offense coordinator excited you gotta be pumped about that now. Anthony leno get a chance to get back out there and do his thing. I wonder what it'll be like not being head coach anymore. And not having to deal with that bullshit. But i'm pumped for staley to get that chargers team going. Let's go to the houston. Texans onto shawn watson has been at training camp. Okay because it's a fifty thousand dollar a day fine if you do. Not the new. Cba makes it impossible to hold out basically financially. You're gonna lose way too much money if you don't go to training camp even if you're not fuck unhappy about whatever it could be the shawn watson showed up. He was listed as the fourth string quarterback. Today they want to patchy was seen on the sideline getting work or somewhere away from the field. This whole situation continues to confuse the hell out of me. They're still talking as if he's going to play this year. I have no idea how that happens with everything that's happening off the field but obviously him in houston is not going to be a thing. And that's pretty apparent. From what i've been reading thus far it makes no sense because is even out there. That's what i mean like doesn't wanna play for them. They can't really trade him right now. Like you think at this point. The teammates too like they know like okay. He's not going to be our quarterback in the nfl. Every is out there. All you do is get reminded of everything. That's going on outside like who wants that to happen the way it is. I guess maybe the texans do because they want him to stop showing up so then they can get money from i. I have no idea. Maybe that that by the way is probably not accurate at all. I have no idea who who is watching this going. Yeah this is what she'll be happening because if he sits out or whatever can't they like he he's not going to get paid right. I mean they they can just take his money anyway. So it's like at this point. Why does fifty getting fined. Fifty thousand dollars at training camp matter if you're already very vocal about hey i'm not gonna play for these guys this year. I'd rather sit out and lose this money. Like i want to be treated like. It makes no sense that he's still there. We did find out this morning. Though that the houston texans digits finish up a spacex like update on their locker rooms weight room. And jack easterby mr chris. Rock crip walk one fish. Two fish redfish bluefish for christ guy We have seen his work. Both as a pastor and as a leader of men don and houston heating he and mr mcnair and coach dave and caserio. They went ahead and put in a brand new locker. Danner here in houston. It's from the future okay. Now they said now that we got this handled as the coolest locker room of all time. Looks like they got a rocket like race car seats in every single locker. That's awesome that's gonna make you want to go play for the texans obviously Side from also getting a chance to operate alongside. Jackie speier on day to day basis. Now they can handle the shawn watson this what. They've been focused on us. What i my. My sources have been in the coolest part about that locker rooms easter. We actually comes down through the star in the texans head with communion for everybody. Handed out is pretty incredible. Yeah it's awesome. Because do we still. We don't have the video. Because the video i watched that whole thing actually just lowers down for music stars point. Yeah so you know how. Some popstars like jackie's become route. You know on the stage this one actually drops down and he didn't wanna come from. How coming from lord bingo and then go to the two photos the red kind of around the bottom there Then the white obvious importance. Yeah we know what's going on houston smart with show wants to be on the field. He has to be right if they're still trying to trade him because he's not done it's like well. Are they trying to train them. Allegedly they're not answering calls. People are calling there is conversations but is he playing this year. We don't know we know. Lisa friel did an investigation for the nfl. That led to this happening. So you have to. I mean there's a there's a never ending circle here of what the fuck is going. On with the shawn watson i have no idea and one of the ladies who has the alleged offence did an interview and it's not very good for the shop watching very much condemns him for sure. Okay and that happened. That happened so that's probably going to continue to happen right. We would shouldn't think so. So how i don't understand any of this but it continues to be said that he's playing. I don't know how good luck i hope. Justice is served either way in that particular.

I'd go in there and just try to listen to them in just guys that good day enough yeah got type of stuff big part of learning each other right. And i'm not saying that ryan kelly who i think is also injured by the way. I think i'm not sure if he's playing but whose name was on a tweet that was listing off all the bad things going on with the gold so i think he's potentially again a little something. I'm not sure it's surgery but they know each other but like that camaraderie that timing like carson with ty like all that stuff is you so important. I think and with a seventeen game season. Obviously they'll be able to build that as the time comes but in last year there was no as or no training camp and it seemed to work for a lot of people but there are some really good moments. I think that happened in the middle of misery of training camp whenever people kind of come together and that's what i worry about. Whenever you're superstars aren't there like superstars aren't there who set the standard who's guidemap that. There's a lot of leaders on this team. Those are not the only one. But that's what. I'm kind of bummed out about us frank about it though as your friend. I think it's time for you to put the colts to bed and you know. Come over to the dark side and root for the patriots off. It doesn't make sense for you to be miserable for the next twenty weeks. I'll put it to rest. Let it go. And if it's not the patriots maybe the packers maybe the steelers and the anything but the lions back. Cdc said pads coming on. We're gonna find out who wants to deliver plush if you saw them doing down upper but they were getting after they can't look for a couple of Maybe similar reactions as joe judge camp. Maybe for the lions camp if they don't you know downs. Golf underneath a pile getting scorched by. Everybody probably most likely going to happen. Yeah well then. Mc dc is gonna come flying in there in every other coach staff can also beat up. Probably anybody that's so there's gonna be a little bit of a war. But i'm cdc says we who can deliver punishment and who can take punishment which is also a big deal. Can you take a big hit bounce up still remain in the play in the period or do you need to go take a breather and come back later. I think by the time you get the nfl. We know who can take a hit who can't take your head but all mc dc saying this is a. It's a different time here in detroit. Can we give dan campbell. Little credit he played a lot in the years. He knows exactly how to keep his players bodies right talking about in the nfl. yeah lobby. here's a couple of words you we're excited to talk about. Mc cdc. i'm giving them credit. I haven't given them credit. Yeah i agree with that quote that he's saying now he probably said a much larger answer. That was probably much more profound in. This just happens to fit the narrative we will see who can deliver punishment who can take punishment is probably you know. That's very much painting. The character of motor city dan campbell. There's probably much but that's real. You never know why. It's hard for a lot of the veterans to take not a serious. It's very very difficult for a lot of the vets to take serious because you see some people who are absolute heroes in the spring and then all of a sudden you get an and it is a different game now. There are people who are not that great in the spring for whatever reason a little bit slower. Maybe or something like that. They're not able in as soon as pads. Come on it's like okay. We got a goddamn cement mixer. We got a guy now he might have got exposed them to spring a little bit when everything was wide open. You put some pads on this guy. He's off running. It's two different teams but much like everything just like. Not as i think it's when you're building the need he'd be like a circle. I mean amaze me no edges. You need to be tight unit. Let's continue to bounce around the nfl training camps. Justin herbert through seventy yards on the run the other day. He looks unbelievable. There's a lot pop off with the potential. Los angeles chargers being good at football this year. Very quiet conversation about them last year. Was it last year or two years ago. They were on hard knocks last year last year. The rally teams run last year. They're on hard knocks. a lot. more chatter about them. Obviously last year tyrod taylor gets hurt. Herbert goes in because of a golf tee too long. He has a great great run quarterback situationally though they lose in every game basically. They're either running out of bounds when they are should be wanting to keep the clock moving or not getting out of bounds whenever they need the clock stop. There's just a lot of like football. Iq airs. They're happening for the chargers thing. They should have won five to six more game. Definitely which is why. Whenever they fire the coaching staff after a helluva run now granted. The head coach did say that they were out of the playoffs before. They're actually out of the playoffs. So that is something that potentially could get brought up at one point but staley coming in there. There's been nothing but praise song about that man by people around the nfl. That i've chatted about. He's quarterback that defensive coordinator so he sees it from both. He might be the perfect guy for herbert in for that defense and for all the talent and if they can get situational football right charges could be a real fucking problem but they have a massive division. I liked seeing herbert. Chuck at seventy yards. It's also nice to see doesn't need surgery the next day because the last guy saw throw the ball seven yards and training camp needed foot surgery. The next day herbert's up an atom. Like obviously he's going to be very good like you mentioned. I think the biggest problem last year was obviously anthony. Lynn like we talked about it all year. How he just like there was just like a miscommunication there. He kinda just stunk down the stretch. Which is why lions fans feel great. Because he's their offensive coordinator. But you're right you know. I mean i think. The chargers a lot of people. Like i think they herbert takes that next step. I think they'll be a playoff team. I think so too. The chargers are going to be a good squad. Nobody's talking about it. Let's talk about anything. Lumbini offense okay. So it's not his job that situation football that's mc dc's marking anthony lens going to get back in the driver's seat and say hey..

Carson Wentz Says Goodbye To Philadelphia Eagles, Welcomes Fresh Start With Indianapolis Colts
"Carson. Wentz officially introduced as a colts. Now that we're day into the new league year and went hoping for world. Class makeover in indy with frank reich. Who made a big bet on wins putting his career on the line bringing the quarterback. They were an excellent match before the colts. Well built around wins. So here's what went said today about his fresh start. You know you gotta just be intentional. One by one build those relationships and like you said respect is earned not giving so. I look forward to earning a lot of guys respect and You know i i. I'm confident that that will happen. Go trike. I'll never forget when i was working out in fargo north dakota before the draft. It was an instant that we just had this connection on how we see the game and how he challenge each other and ultimately make each other better super excited about getting to work with him again. Because i have the utmost respect for the man that he is also. The coach. study is as well guys here with you for the next hour as well as schefty didn't orlowski. Marcus spears matt miller will join us for a little draft talk later but let's get back to what we just heard from. Carson wentz introduced today. Dan alaska simply is this. How does he move. Forward was carson wentz's success this year. We'll start off the field. There are more questions than answers about him right now. So how is it going to turn the bad of last year into the good this year. What did you learn when it comes to relationships. How are you going to be better at relationships. How are you going to be better at leadership. How are you going to be better at handling the adversity off the field. I mean he just talked about earning the respect of his teammates and in the locker room. Think about this. He can go into that locker right now. This is what i would do if i was him. Sit down with those new coach teammates. How did philip rivers do it. Filled came from a different team and he came down year. What did he do. Endeared himself to you guys how did he earned your respect. What's what's stuff that that clicked with you guys because the reality is you don't have to sit here and say that you've got to be somebody or not. You can still be the genuine authentic person that you are but the reality is you should be ever changing. You should be ever-growing. And i liked the fact that he said. I've got to be intentional because the truth is this when september comes. No one cares about your excuses. Excuses or explanations you've got to figure out in the next five months in the midst of unique off season again how to earn. How do prove to your teammates that you're the guy proved to your teammates that you will take over this locker room and become part of it. That's his biggest challenge and once he realizes that off the field is equally if not more important on the field. That's when he can start to rebuild his career. Yeah no doubt. I think self awareness as well like the indianapolis colts need carson wentz to come and fix them as a football team he needs to. They need him to come. Add to what they already have going already building. And there's a amount of pressure on carson winston. He never felt in philly because of the situation. And he walks into. And they are frank reich as well like frank reich has attached is job to carson wentz internally him around and making him the quarterback that that can get team to where they think they can go but india set. They have a good offense around. Obviously they make moves at tackle. They have a good running back. Good receivers a defense that at the top level of the nfl last year. so carson winston is not coming into a bad situation this is a rehab for carson wins. This is not a rehab for the indianapolis colts. He needs to be aware aware of that as well. And look i wish and hope that carson wentz turns this thing around and has a lot of success. I'm just going to sit back and see how he handles the pressure. Because now you're on a playoff team. You're around got dairies. Linda put it out there right here to win. Don't care about what you have to say don't care about your past that these that transpired pencil tired about if you're going to come play for the indianapolis colts come to win. So there's a lot on the line of course a wins but there's also a lot on the line for the indianapolis colts football team as far as where they wanna go and a hell of a lot of framed right for sticking his neck out there to say i'm the guy that can get the carson that we saw in twenty seventeen. And if he is. The indianapolis colts are absolutely a legit super bowl contender.
Mornings with Keyshawn, Jorge & LZ
Eagles trade Carson Wentz to Indianapolis Colts
"You. What are your thoughts here on. The carson wentz listening to come and key overpaid underpaid. Who won the tree. There's just so many opinions out there. What's yours i mean my opinion is for carson wentz. This is best case scenario. I mean this time was up in philly. The the philadelphia fans didn't want him and he didn't want the philadelphia eagles anymore so he gets to move on to a place where he wants to go and he never made it public that he wanted to be an indianapolis colts. But this is the best place for him. Is frank reich. A guy that believes in them. You have a very good defense a good run game. Excellent offensive line some young weapons on the outside. But to me this is put up or shut up for carson. Wentz and frank right reich. You're staking your your career on this guy being what he was in two thousand and seventeen when you haven't had him and now if you're carson wentz you're in a perfect situation for yourself to resubmit yourself as one of the top tier quarterbacks in this league and if you don't do it i believe this is his last opportunity as a no brainer starter for any organization ryan. What's your reaction to the eagles having the six pick and potentially targeting a quarterback at the six spot. You know what i think. The eagles would be stupid to be messed up at quarterback again. Right you look at it last year carson. Wentz didn't play well. You drafted a guy in the second round so there were rumblings that people wanted to see him play and then he plays any outplays carson wentz and now you find yourself in this issue. Do you really want the do that. Couldn't read his press statement in his opening. Press conference to start to season the season with a quarterback controversy. And here's the other problem. Let's say. Trevor lawrence and anzac wilson go one two or go one three. And if you're picking where the philadelphia eagles are if you're not in love with the quarterback don't waste your pick. Don't put yourself in another bad position. And listen to you. Look at trae lance you look at justin feels and i know people are going to kind of compare these guys based on color but that's not it. I'm just talking about style of play. We're talking about two quarterbacks that extend plays the same way. that jalen hurts us. Two quarterbacks that can make all the throws but may read things a step through slow if you listen to some of the skull which. I don't believe about justin fields. Which are going to have quarterbacks. That are very similar at at very similar ages competing. And i don't necessarily know if that's the right thing for an organization starting over with the new coach when you have a guy that had some success in jalen hurts. Evaluate him seeing. If he's your quarterback of the future anythi is you don't waste at picking us to get better somewhere else.

"On the show is long time NFL writer See him and you read him as part of the goal. Long vertical joining us here on the program, one of the best in profiling all of the athletes and coaches around the league. Tyler done, Ty. Good morning. How you doing? Good morning, DEA. Thanks so much for having me back, man. Always great to hear your voice. My pleasure, buddy. Now, let's start with the big news on Thursday. That was Carson Wentz getting traded to the Colts. It looks like it's going to be a third rounder and then a conditional second rounder. That second rounder would become a first. If the Colts make the playoffs, and Carson Wentz is their starting quarterback to do so. So. We assumed that the Colts do end up making the postseason next year, which they did this past season. It's a one and a three for Carson Wentz. What do you think about the return of the Eagles got for him. I guess it's good that they got something for him because clearly Carson went Didn't want to be there clearly the route of contender clearly, Howie Roseman has screwed the situation up about as bad as any gmk unscrew it up. I mean, they because they won the Super Bowl. They've done just about everything wrong and I like the contractor went, I think went That 2017 m v p version. It's in there somewhere. They just did everything else so terribly. So I guess to cut your losses and get something. It's not terrible. But But I love this for Indianapolis. If anybody can kind of get that old went to bowl to resurfaces, Frank Reich and Frank, right, No doubt. Knows that this is a team that can win the Super Bowl of their quarterback away. Rivers was good, but I have a sense that you know, right? Hasn't for gotten that fourth and goal from before the end of the first half against Buffalo. When rivers past sales. Sure long. I mean, that's about as close as they were. They just do that. Is something different from juice out of that position. And I think once could give it to him. Tell me about how or why you think Howie Roseman has screwed everything up in Philadelphia? Since that 2017 see? So what Specifically? Do you see that he screwed up? Man. I mean, you know you could start with hanging on the hanging onto the wrong bet. You know, Al Shaun Geoffrey. That contract was just an albatross and, um, you know, and you know, probably like they probably should have paid up for a guy like Malcolm Jenkins. I mean, there's definitely some veterans that They sit in a black go others that they hung onto. They shouldn't have but beyond that, and then we could play the draft game, you know, with anybody, but you look at their drafts and Holy cow. I mean that the receivers that they missed on from DK Metcalf that Justin Jefferson just taken One being a bust one. We'll see what happens is Gregor, but he might be a bus to compared to Jefferson. One pick after another. I mean, it just they didn't do anything for once, Um, I get it like you pay a quarterback that money you kind of expect him to Raised the level of play of everybody around him. But I just think that there's such a lack of playmakers there and That offensive line that was inconsistent and a defense. Of it. It just It just got so bad so fast that I tend to want to get once the past. I mean, I think that a lot of it's mental to even you know, from the That Would say what you want. I mean, Jamie hurts. Something happened there with the ones where you got the yips, and he just wasn't himself and different quarterbacks reacted different situations. Different. Aaron Rodgers is the M V P And they draft his Replacement, Um, when they should have just kind of known what they had in him and how he would react to that. And clearly they didn't because clearly he was a different quarterback. Mm Tyler done joins us here on the D A show yesterday, Carson Wentz being traded to the Indianapolis Colts, And now we wonder about to Shawn wants it as well. Now that's a totally different situation. He would fetch a huge return where Wentz did not, but it seems like all signs keep pointing back to Jack Easterby. As a huge reason why to Shawn wants out. JJ Watt wanted his release and got it and that the Texas has just been overall mess. Can you point the finger? Do you have any inside knowledge off? What makes Jackie's to be a so So safe, so protected by comic there and be so despised. Mm. You know, I think that he definitely endeared himself to the ownership of their put pretty early on and they trust them. I mean, his power is pretty unquestioned at this point, and I can't speak to him specifically. And stole that went down. John Watson. No, no, It's the people in his inner circle, and this is somebody who basically feels light to you know, when he signed his contract extension, he was told Look when we have to make some big decisions. Whether it's a GM head coats and we wanted you to be at the tape. We want you to have a say because I remember when he signed that deal. I was like, you know, it probably had to see some red flags, right? Like your ink in that contract. You had to see. Why did you do it? Then? You know, eight months ago, whatever. It was not even 56 months ago, And I think that he liked that He was gonna have a say, and he basically feels life because when it comes And they do need to find a coach in the G. M. Um they don't really listen to him that it really include him. And now if they didn't tell him that he would have a boy's probably wouldn't have cared that much. But I think the fact that he did and they didn't and the team stinks. They got no defense. They have no running game. Alternatively, did he ever Hopkins. All of that kind of combined is why Duggan. I think he's okay, losing some money, too. I think that the shard of watch is really committed to this trade request, and it's kind of see it through for a long time, and it would move the Texans. Get something for him because you got needs everywhere. Tyler Don is the creator of Gold long, which is a football vertical, and it does some great deep dives in long form pieces on players around the NFL, and you just have an amazing one. Alan Robinson, the Bears wide receiver Now this is one of the best wide outs of the NFC. Bears offense stinks. And so you'd imagine that whatever he cost, they would easily happily pay because they need mortgage eyes like him. Not less guys like him. So what's the deal? I mean, you spoke to Alan Robinson, and I'm sure that he's gonna be scratching his head wondering what's the deal with this front office? I mean, you just nailed the D A. I think that he is still scratching his head. He was Unbelievably candid and our conversation both him and his agent Brandon Parker, you know, last year our 365 days ago, so they they initiated the conversations with the bears. They reached out. They extended that olive branch multiple times over the offseason. And The reaction they got was just kind of an awkward reaction from their front office. I mean, they didn't really want to talk. They want to have a serious conversation, and it went nowhere until right before the season like teams typically do right catch a player. Right when they're worried about, you know, suffering injury and they want Oh, yeah, That's what you want to get a guy to sign a contract, not not the best state negotiating..
Strong Opinion Sports
Philadelphia Eagles trade QB Carson Wentz to Indianapolis Colts for two draft picks
"Story of the day. The Eagles have traded quarterback Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts and oh my goodness. It made me very happy. I was so excited. There's a lot to unpack. I want to start though by mentioning a weird thing first. In the 2016 NFL draft the number and overall pick was Jared Goff. The number two overall pick was Carson Wentz. And both have been traded away from the teams. They were drafted by 19 days apart. Just a weird quick doesn't happen very often the guy a number and overall pick a number 2 overall pick gets traded away. Especially not the quarterback position. Let alone almost in just over two weeks apart from each other. That's crazy. Pretty wild now after the trade the Eagles have a 33.8 Million Dead money. Salary cap charge for the 2021 NFL season what that means I will get into that in a minute. First of all, that's actually by the way the most ever to have dead money cap. I guess charge or penalties by an NFL team. It's so much that I actually thought that might keep the Eagles from trading cars and stuff like that might be so much of a penalty. They're not even getting rid of the guy sounds like they did. I thought it's good for everybody Carson Wentz wanted out they I think we're you know, we'll talk about Jalen hurts in a minute, but I thought it was good to get Carson out of there. It is also kind of weird and interesting I talked about Jared Goff previously very briefly the other the the record for the most amount of dead money against the salary cap was Jared Goff. The Rams amount is 22.2 million dollars off. Beat 19 days later by the Carson Wentz trade what is dead money? You may ask it's basically all the guaranteed money the Eagles still owe Carson Wentz after the trade. So even though Carson is no longer on their team. He still creates a thirty three point eight million dollar cap hit for next year. So over thirty-three million dollars off of the salary cap has taken up for Philadelphia. They cannot use that money for other players. It's weird. It's interesting. It's never that's again the most ever pretty interesting. I was surprised that you know, they still trade off a given that but in the trade the Colts got Carson Wentz so the cold they get their quarterback that the replacement Philip Rivers the replacement for Andrew Luck. I'm happy for the Colts man. They've they've Way to make it work. They lost in Turlock. They had to scramble the Mage Jacoby Brissett work for a year. They made Philip Rivers work for a year. Now. They've got what they believe is their franchise guide Carson Wentz good for them. The Eagles got a 2001 third-round pick for the upcoming NFL draft and a conditional 2022 second-round pick and here's what's really cool. The condition. Is that if Carson Wentz plays 75% off Kohls offensive snaps for next year if it stays healthy place the whole year or you know, it's good enough to be the starter all years and get benched. Then that draft pick goes from a second round pick in 2022 to a first-round picks. Oh, wow. I like about that. People are saying the Eagles got a horrible trade. They got fleeced. It's terrible. Oh my goodness. You gotta realize this is probably the best trade they could possibly find the Eagles traded away Carson Wentz a guy who has an injury history has been injured repeatedly over the years. He's coming off of a horrible season where he was so bad the dude got benched for Jalen hurts a rookie quarterback Club. So the fact that Philadelphia made a trade where they have an opportunity to get a first-round pick that's impressive to me. I think people realize that's the best they were going to get so anybody criticizing Philadelphia you did not realize how I think how little value Carson Wentz really had on the market people like nobody really wants him. I think JJ Watts getting a ton of attention Carson Wentz people are very wary. And I think it's really what's really disappointed me. Is that the Bears didn't get him. What did the Bears did the Bears not want him? I don't understand. Maybe they're trying to John Watson feel like the Bears really lost here. They still got home key who Carson Wentz has problems I think is way better than Mitchell trubisky. So debate that all you want. I don't know how you go. Like. Oh the Bears they got a great quarterback still trubisky. I like it. I think another thing people got realize is that I love the trade for Carson Wentz. He's going to a way better team he gets to play for his former offensive coordinator Frank back in 2017 the best year Carson Wentz ever had in the NFL. He was a before he got hurt. He was an MVP candidate playing under Frank Reich. He's reuniting with that guy that's going to be awesome to got a great relationship and EM the Colts have a great offensive line. They've got to get running game. They've got a great defense Carson Wentz is being put into a great situation. If he does not do well then there's no excuse. You can make he's got great great team around him good support good people. He's getting helped.

Eagles trade Wentz to Colts for 2 picks
"This morning, Adam Schefter tweeted. Philadelphia has agreed to trade Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for a 2021 3rd round pick and a conditional 2022 2nd round pick that could turn into a first league sources tell at Mort Report and me and a tweet. There you have it. Carson Wentz is going to the courts. He's going to reunite with Frank Reich, and he's got a chance to turn his career around.
Carson Wentz would prefer to leave Philadelphia Eagles, but team is not looking to trade him, per report
"This is the saga that we've been covering forever right carson. Wentz coming off terrible year. You know that he got benched. You'll see all the numbers and it was just awful but when they made the choice to fire the coach and bring in frank. Reich's assistant nick serianni. We figured well at the end of that is coming back in philly. Adam schefter yesterday said maybe not so fast wants. Leave the franchise. That's why the trade still employ. This is a real and this was made up and just because he would like to be moved doesn't mean he will be if i had to guess i would guess he is traded. That'd be my guess. Okay at some point this off season but again. they're not just going to train them just. They're not looking to get rid of him. They're not shefty. I shefty speech. The world listens and dan. Orlovsky we've not had you on this yet today. What is your reaction to this idea that it seems at least from the outside like the eagles have probably done just about everything he might have wanted and he still wants out agree with them. Schefter i think carson wentz wants away from philadelphia for a long time. People thought well he wants away. From doug peterson i think he wants to wait from the city. I think he wants away. From the organization. Greenie do speak so loudly. I need not hear what you say. And we live in a time frame and society where it's the easiest time ever to make some form of statement and carson had two opportunities to do that his first head coach in the. Nfl was fired. He had the opportunity to post something on twitter. Post something on instagram. Saying you're my. I said coach ever in the nfl while it didn't work out the way we wanted to for the long run. I'm forever thankful for our time together. Well then we move on and they hire a head coach. Nick serianni another opportunity to make some form of statement some form of. I'm looking forward to the future. New new beginnings fresh start excited to work with you and nothing for those two reasons. I'm sitting back and going carson. Wentz doesn't want to be in philadelphia. Maybe it wasn't as tight to doug peterson and it is tied to the organization and what has transpired over the past couple of weeks past couple of months. I can tell you this. I had a coach call me last week and spend twenty minutes on the phone with me asking about what my thoughts were with carson. Wentz the good and the bad why. It went south this past season because they've got a high level of interest in them and i think two teams. That should be calling our indy in chicago. Both of them have a win. Now defenses and both of them have some form of a tie in the past with carson wentz being frank reich and indian john d. filipo in chicago so i agree with this Shefty i think it's more likely. He gets traded than not.
KNBR The Sports Leader
"frank reich" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"I was like, Whoa, whoa, whoa. You guys have done your homework like there's no ship First. There's no chance These teams are doing their homework like you don't like Nick Syriani or whatever his first name is. If you're doing your homework, right, like the Jags, that there was a rumor about urban Meyer, then he was out. It was like, maybe this is the guy like I get it. They went for the home run. They went for the big name. Who knows if it works, But at least the process appeared from the outside like it took a little bit of time. The other thing with this is they fired Doug Peterson, and he hasn't been brought up in like any conversation at all Hospitals is about to be Bobby Evans of the NFL like he's about tickets just go like three years with no job. And that's and that's what's absurd is this is a guy who I do like a Zafar is like the new wave of the way football games are coached in game with rolling the dice and going forward on fourth down. I think he was at the at the don't want to say, like the cutting edge of that, But he was definitely a guy who was at the forefront like I'm gonna take these risks like we're seeing it now with Mike Vrabel doesn't a lot. John Harbaugh doesn't lie. Teams that will go for it on fourth down because the analytics suggest that there is a situation you should do it. Well, we saw Sean McDermott basically, you know, kick himself field goal himself into oblivion Championship weekend with opportunity. Same sort of thing goes with that LaFleur not going forward on fourth down, but I also look back now at that post season. And when they were going forward on fourth down, and they kept getting it and you're running the Philly special in all this stuff. Do you think everything just kind of clicked right for one year for him like maybe maybe it also, he had Frank, right man, Frank Wright was clearly the mind the brains behind that offense. Yeah, There's no question in my mind if Frank Reich was able to get Nick Foles to play at that level. We have seen Nick Foles and like four different uniforms now. We know what kind of a quarterback he is. Frank Reich was clearly the brains there and so to go out and bring someone from the cold staff that Frank Reich had to try and fix. Carson Wentz. I get it, but is Carson went still in eagle after all of this? Where's Matt Ryan? Matt Stafford playing next year like Who's going to Who? What is going to be the biggest quarterback? Move this off season? What is going to shake up the NFL? In a way that we don't see coming. That's my big question. I think I think the number 11 has to be to Shawn Watson because he's the biggest name out there. But you're right in that, like the Matt Stafford moved the magnitude of that, and the other thing is in. This is your point, I think is that the dish on Watson thing could be a domino effect. Like if he ends up going to the New Orleans Saints or something, or he ends up with the You know what if he ends up in Atlanta, then just Atlanta, move that draft pick. Do they go acquire something else and look to fill a void elsewhere on that roster to this, Then they move. Matt Ryan and just Matt Ryan are matched effort, ending up with a team like the 40 Niners changed. The landscape of the NFL doesn't make them all that much better. Do the Patriots come up, had a huge name. That's a scary 12 May that's a scary one of me because Path. People forget this all the time. They had more opt outs on defense than any other team had in the NFL this year due to cope in 19. There were a lot of guys who took coronavirus really seriously and their roster is going to look very different next season so that they get the Shawn Watson and they get a first round receiver. All of a sudden, they're dangerous, but I think that actually the Dolphins are the best situation if they're able to keep the number three pick Drafted Vontae Smith pair him with Watson and then just say, Okay, we've got our offense with Watson, Parker Smith. And let's go because the defense under Brian Flores is going to be decent enough to keep them in postseason contention, even with the bills in that division Boy, the Devante Smith for the last week seeing him I saw the first time this week Todd McShay milk might of been Mel Kiper had him number two on his draft board was thinking, Boy. You think the Jets to take this guy was like, who's gonna throw this guy the fuck back? Don't you think it's solid and show up and be like, Give me that undersized kick returner. I want that guy. Yeah, we haven't even talked about Sam Donald, potentially moving on. He's got to be a 40 Niners target, too. If they miss out on, Stafford say, Stafford goes the Colts, Watson Ghost the Dolphins or someone else goes to the Patriots like that. I mean, you would have to put Sam Donaldson that like Kirk cousins, Matt Ryan, tier of maybe this is something that should be paid attention to. My fear with the 40 Niners and I'll leave it with this before we jump to our next topic on the other side will take a quick break and come back and talk a little baseball but with the 40 Niners, I guess my biggest fear is If you make the move away from Jimmy G. You have to know that it's a better move right like if they can get matched effort. I think that Stafford is an automatic. Yes, he's better than Jimmy Garoppolo. You have to take him based purely on the fact that he's gonna be on the field right. Like I think he's a better QB. But he's been more healthy just over the course of his career. In general, the other elements of this is if you don't get him, do you end up? With a situation where it's like, okay, maybe we move on from Jimmy G. But you end up with a Sam Donald and a Josh Rosen and like a Ah, third middle of the road, veteran quarterback fighting for a job. I don't think that does you any good? No, no, it like you said, demonstrably better than Jimmy Garoppolo. And that's not just on the field. That is his availability as well. You have to have someone with a track record of being healthy enough. It's the same a 16 game or 17 game NFL schedule in 2021, all right. On the other side, we're gonna talk more about its Hall of Fame Week. We've got to discuss that.

Philadelphia Eagles hire Nick Sirianni to replace Doug Pederson as head coach
"We're gonna talk about the new head coach. The eagles tired offense former offensive coordinator for the indianapolis colts. Under frank reich. Nick syrian of course This is a this is a guy who i don't think many of us of before the last couple of weeks so this is certainly certainly football. Guys know who. Nick serianni is people who are who are living breathing and and eat this stuff. No hixon's but for the casual fan. There was no reason to think he would be on anybody's shortlist. Of course eagles didn't have a shortlist. They had a long list and we're looking at seemingly every coordinator under the sun here over the last couple of weeks but just before we get into the details. What are your general impressions of nick. Serianni your i feel like It's gonna be hard to judge him early on because first off. He doesn't have head coaching experience. So he's going to be learning on the job and second he's coming into a situation where The idea of molding a quarterback is going to be tough. because he's gotta figure out who's his quarterback and Is this a question of are. Are you fixing the guy that looked like the cornerstone franchise quarterback. Are you putting out fires inside a locker room because of Are we are. We going to have factions inside that locker room that wanna see carson wentz or jalen hurts or there's so many unknowns on who's going to be the starter in september that this guy has to figure out but at the same time he has to figure out his way through the entire locker room so the stuff i've heard from guys that i trust in the nfl Guys that i i. I've been texting over the last You know six months but also especially during the last week in the coaching search. The coaches that they interviewed. Just show me that The person that they thought they were gonna have wasn't the guy more Things have changed on the quarterback situation. And you know when you when you see the connection that frank right has and the influence that he has with nick siri auntie and conversation with carson wentz. You start to connect the dots. Oh they'll this would naturally make sense but at the same time. I don't think he was on many people's radars and I feel i feel like you know. I have some optimism. But i come back to one thing and and i haven't been this way john while when it comes to the eagles and it's really depressing and i wanted to depress our audience and it doesn't matter who you have as a coach if the coach doesn't have any sense of power of putting together a staff if the coach doesn't have Any any say or strong influence on how to build the roster that is what kind of free-agent as well as we're kind of draft picks and that was a huge issue with doug and buying when you win the super bowl away. Doug won the super bowl. I think doug deserves a little more Room when it came to influence. And if that hasn't changed from above doug With the gm. Then what are we talked about. We're talking about an owner. Gm that's going to have more say more control and the same thing that we've seen before and i've said this before during the entire Coaching search. Why would a head coach with experience or reputation or the The hotshot innovative Guy that's coming in like lincoln riley. Why would they come into this situation. If they don't have a sense of control of power so. I think it's very predictable that we're seeing first time head coach Because it was the same thing we saw with. Doug it's it's the same track record and if you are going to follow the same stuff. You're gonna continue. Repeat the same mistakes over and over again above doug on who is making the picks right clearly clearly that has not been resolved yet or at least not publicly on understanding power. We figuring out the talent pool because what we're doing right now or what. The eagles have done right now has not worked. And when you look back at specially going back the last six seven years

Fun fact, Amy and I weren't even born yet. That's more amazing fun. Right no choice. Oh, yeah. I mean fun fact number to Pete Carroll is 34 years and 131 days older than Sean McVay. So Seattle plays the Rams this coming weekend right? I know a dead. All right, so Pete Carroll 34 years and 131 days older than Sean McVeigh which sets the record for the largest age differential between opposing head coaches in a playoff game in NFL history. This is so dorky. I'm pretty convinced Joey said you that one because she's been walking around feeding me stats from the 2013 Seahawks season. Shoot me fucking shoot me dead. Yeah, so I didn't realize that a baby shot McVeigh is but he totally is again, we've been like, oh my gosh, like cradle-robbing with him. Yeah. He's younger than I am fuck off. Okay, I don't want let's not talk about it. All right moving on the one thing real quick remove on cuz you're talking about the Seahawks because of the masks. I miss Pete Carroll chewing like a maniac I miss seeing them come with you can't see it under his mask know remember when he'd see his mouth like this like I'm doing a search. Yeah.

First Things First
Wentz benched for Hurts; no verdict on starter
"Green bay now carson wentz was benched for jalen hurts midway through the third quarter. Yesterday hurts play. The eagles back into the game hurts so good with jalen in there. I've been waiting to say probably should have waited a little longer brandon. Getting benched for hurts blank you had to answer is much needed Put myself in his shoes. A lot of people don't understand how toxic of in oven environment it is when you're losing and you walk into. Nfl locker room organization. This is a billion dollar industry with multimillion dollar athletes. They accountability the type of pressure. That you face every single day to perform at a high level is out of this world so for carson wentz. This is the best thing that could potentially happen when you don't have to deal with that anymore walking into the organization and basing your teammates base in the media that's hard when you're playing this bet your teams playing this bed. There's nowhere to high so when you get bitch. Now it's time for him to take a deep breath and focus on the future now. I think i'm one that will stay on the table to think that you know just a little bit of time. Time could potentially fix these issues with the right type of pieces around him. I don't think it's time to move on. I just think they need to regroup. So i think it's intriguing for frank right frank reich. The head coach of indianapolis colts is the offensive coordinator in philadelphia. And twenty seventeen the only year carson wentz has looked like a franchise quarterback as soon as frank reich left seemingly soda carson winston ability to lead a team deep into the playoffs or einstein. He got hurt that year but the double digit wins. The colts got a thirty eight year. Old bolo tie wearing interception machine at quarterback who can't wait to get down to i think it's florida's offense coordinated bryce school next year. They know they're going to be in the markets on quarterback they also know their too good to draft one. And they don't trust your koby perset. Free agent marketplace isn't going to be right with starting quarterbacks and philly is going to have to trade carson if they want to move on from they can't cut it so i think frank reich is watching carson wentz struggles and saying to chris ballard and folks in indy guys. I think we can get him for a conditional seventh round pick. They just want to get off the contractor replays. Well so i think frank reich is watching this and saying you know what that could be starting quarterback next year.

It's or Crypto will. Now it's crypto twitter's the word but you see all the social media it's a Sort of a wild environment and it was eye opening for me to jump from traditional tack and business and Fintech into the system. It's two years later from when I originally met you. I feel about twice as old twice as have have no kidding. So so it's been a while couple of years but to your question so entered the space to fulltime as described right when things were rushing up an Krisha knowing But I've been bitcoin owner since two thousand thirteen fall. Hackers out there. You're welcome like Ryan. I enjoyed talking about you.

And I think we're still seeing this. Continue today with every Cinta company out there seemingly having the aspiration perhaps other than Stripe Square and Shop Affi- which is sort of Fintech e adjacent to sell to big bank or financial institution your I wanted to actually work on. What would hopefully be disrupting financial institutions in the way that we describe them and you know the regulated by the US government and other governments over the next few decades And discovering bitcoin in two thousand thirteen participating and being on the outskirts but seeing it from a formal industry perspective. You got me excited about the potential slightly aware of the risks the personalities the complexity. And then when I decided to jump in full-time Holy Shit. It was like awesome terrifying confusing and just a trigger for all of my good bad side as well as seemingly everybody else who is participating and I probably monologues provide house all stop here but looking at this confusing volatile space. At a time when it was you know growing seemingly exponentially was was simultaneously amazing scary and and just saw like I think what you saw around. I mean you've you've been full time for a long time but A darth of reliable real credible information that led people to do really stupid things and inaccurate. Gets us to the core of what the block is. I I don't WanNa go out on a limb and describe the block because I know that you're just gonNa correct me with some ostentatious vision and my best not everything of everything that That the two more people look at the block. They see a a media outlet. That's competing with coin desk. I think you yourself has Have have been vocal about winning business away from Clinton to ask and in growing the audience. You've obviously got a very strong team of researchers that are on percents On on twitter in a good way a lot a lot of the content has been exceptional. What's how do you describe the block? And and where are we now in terms of its evolution? Because I'll have Frank Frank Reich went for a run which typically twelve minute pace half walkout by their which is bad news. So maybe you can think about the block in terms of caricatures. Franken the media elements and then there folks being the research but how does how does this business align with your original vision to improve information in the industry? And and where do you think you are now versus where you want to be? So the original tagline was crypto simplified. While we strive to do that I. It doesn't describe you know what what we do in its entirety. We've expanded that into the first and final word and digital assets and what that means really as you were not just simplifying things so you can understand them. But we'd like to be the first place you look to figure out what the heck's going on this space and we define the space pretty broadly so it's not just covering public blockchain's and cryptocurrencies than I just covering bitcoin Theorem Ripples and Be Gash Etcetera. It's covering central. Bank digital currencies is covering distributed ledger technology and stuff that is adjacent. So companies that are using technology and governments that are thinking about money in new ways The original idea and concept was again crypto simplified and it was hatched time when there was a lot more momentum behind. Lucia say everyday people's interest in learning more and going really deep in the technology What happened? Is you in two thousand eighteen as we started to form the brand and launched the brand. We realized we had incredible talent Stephen Frank Larry editorial talent that was super experienced had experience in various aspects of currency and blockchain Inventec analysis research and so we launched you. Know Not really a crypto. Simplify brand one. That had insider knowledge people gravitated towards our all of our contact with free in two thousand eighteen and that was the original vision for the business was young in two thousand eighteen. Hundreds of millions of people will be interested in this You know imminent revolution. That's happening today. What has clearly happened as everybody took a deep breath. Certainly we did and said Hey. This is going to be a multi year multi decade evolution with a incredible things happening up stones and everything in between just like I think a lot of technology and a lot of you know financial markets over yet throughout history. So where we've come out is. We are focused on instead of blockchain. One one Call it somewhere between Crypto blockchain to one and above. And it's enough that if you're if you're somebody who's aware of what's going on you can kind of start with our news and journalism that's our top of funnel that's where most people are aware of the block the news and journalism brand. And then you we will through as you mentioned our social counts and through our personal accounts. We you know. Basically tighten the funnel and connect to the folks who are actually participating fully in the market. And then we sell solutions as including research information.

Dr. David Chao talks injuries
"Dr Child always good to have you aboard for the show. Thanks for having me. So when we look at some of the injuries that kind of flakes of the skill position talents We had a big one again in Tampa and it seems to be history repeating itself last week we talked about Mike Evans. His hamstring hamstring the season ending scenario. That played out there. Lo and behold Chris Godwin goes down with what looked like a similar injury last. We saw him carted off in the tunnel in Detroit. Coincidence there is there something going on in Tampa as it pertains to their wideouts in their hamstrings as we get into the tail end of the season they run them ragged and they throw the ball lot. That's probably the only Only Lincoln Yeah and if you really WANNA go conspiracy theory Mike Evans last week. You Scott Miller Another wide receiver earlier in the game in Chris Godwin in early in the season Perriman had a hamstring issue. So if you really trying to go that way but I think it's just coincidence and maybe some of it is They're still slinging the ball around quite a bit Four hundred fifty yards for James Winston This week so so they were running a lot of routes and so forth as we talked about Mike Evans Hamstring with significant and with only three games left. We thought you and I are candidate. I think the same something's GonNa fall for for Chris Godwin here. You know there's only two weeks left there the bucks out of it The hamstring is probably going to be longer than that and he's probably headed into reserve so What does that mean I mean? Had you know from a fantasy site look for paramount. Because Winston's going to have to you. Who else is left? That's a blow. Be still my heart God. What has been the Horse Dr John? That's gotten me in the fantasy. Football finals beat up on her. Dear friend Clay Travis this past past week and in a massive showdown GonNa help that somebody else on my rosters able to step up and fill that void pain savior jokes. Because I know you're gonNA take cheap shots I'm not at all I'm not at all actually gonNA transition to another wide receiver with Adam Phelan. There was talks that he wasn't going to return until he was one hundred percent. Healthy Limited. Snap count this past against the chargers. What do you think that was maybe score or Israel setback therefore Adam feeling well? I think it's a original part of the plan in preparation. Maybe the seven snaps were only because of because of the score but he was never gonNA play fifty Think about it this way first of all if you look Ah. The history of what happened with Phelan was supposed to be a minor hamstring. You played it. Two weeks aggravated missed. Many more weeks. Try to come back to fast in in Practice aggravated again. So they've been burned twice with aggravation. Do you think they were GonNa be burned a third time when next week. They have the Monday night game against against the packers which is for the division and then even the week seventeen game against the division rival bears. This were the LA chargers not that you look past with them. But I don't care who it was only made medical sense to bring him back a little more slowly this type give them a few game raps so that he can and be good to go for the packers. I think you'll see. EEOC normal reps against the packers next week but there was no way he's going to see normal routes this week and so even when Schefter after said he was going to play and be fine. I never thought he would. But you know we all know coachspeak right. It's just another example of coachspeak another guy that's critical to the Vikings offensive successes. Delvin Cook suffered another shoulder. Injury couldn't return against the chargers. Obviously you mentioned the importance of the Monday night. Game against the packers will Delvin Cook play and if so how effective can you be. Well here's a good news. Bad News Bad news is he got hurt again and you didn't finish the game the bad news. It's actually a new injury and that's also the good news it's a new injury if it were the SC join again the right Septa. You'd have to say. Even when he plays against the packers he's one hit one play from being out against. This seems to be something to his left shoulder by video. I can't tell you exactly what it is. There's which sometimes good news because if he dislocated I could tell you. I don't think that's the case. I can't tell you exactly what he has. But it's new to the left shoulder and I think there is okay. Good chance I would expect that he will play and be good to go against the packers And I think that's part of where they said Look L.. Let us live to fight another day Dalvin and rest the rest of the game here in terms of feeling like they have a game in hand out in Los Angeles makes percents with a capable fill in like Mike. Boone had two touchdowns he actually had the second highest sparks score among running backs in two thousand eighteen draft only behind saquon so hard running running in athletic last Vikings Guy One ask you about. That's crucial to the defense's cornerback. Xavier Rhodes went into the chargers game with an ankle. Injury already played through it left left with what appeared to be a calf injury. Does he have a shot to play against Green Bay it's GonNa be hard Calf injuries linger CT Way Hilton. And uh-huh this even though he was GonNa want to at the quarterback position. It's pretty hard to break in driving the ball. If you don't have your staff there then you add the lingering ankle. I mean when you talk about multiple injuries and one of them being calf especially the positioning place as optimistic as I am on Dow Cook able to go. I'm not pessimistic and league's exist your roads being able to go last one. I want to ask you about beforehand it back to todd. The timeline probably doesn't work if it's a high ankle sprain but The seasons on the Line Right Philadelphia Dallas does lane. Johnson have a chance to play this week. I think he does first of all learning clean. Johnson Yasser Heikal Spring He might get some pre-game quote acupuncture to play area. I mean it's it's that big give a game and the other thing is he. You know Yes he's a tackle so he's a little more in space and I can guard. But but certainly it's easier to for a Lineman Wiedeman an offensive lineman to play through high ankle than some other skill position. So I think he's GonNa try everything you can to go. The question is If he can royal factor if you will be I think you're GONNA try all hands on deck type game coming up Sunday for the division and I know a lot of our board listeners Dr Chow who have been writing this Eagles Eagles train with the division future since the beginning of the season. So we'll all sit with wait and wait with bated breath as they go into that one against maybe resurgent cowboys team is short home underdogs but but before we get there. We do have a Monday night. Football game and clearly. The biggest injury around this contest is with. Ty held a lot of optimism through colts camp but you look through some of the lingering signs for T. Y.. Hilton this calf injury. Do you expect him to be able to give it a go tonight. And if if even tries how effective do you believe. He can be out there as a viable deep throat against the Saints Defense. Well you know. There's there's there's two two thoughts here the he will play thought and he won't play thought if you go by what the head coach says and very fulmer to him. Even Situation Frank Reich is if he plays on Monday. We'll be at one hundred percent. I E not playing short of a hundred percent. Well if that is actually true. He's not playing period. There's no way that cafeteria one hundred percent is lingered this long another couple of days. He's been full practice all all week and other days isn't GonNa Change Anything. There's no way he's hundred hundred percent for tonight's game. So we're going to stick to what Frank Reich really sad. Ty He's already told US T Y Hilton's not playing but we all know coachspeak and we all know this is. The colts is kind of last chance. They kind of have to win to stay in it to have any chance to stay in it so That may push what t y Hilton does and you may try. Try and go always interesting to see these guys and who's able to gut it out. As it becomes a war of attrition at this point in the season especially with playoff berths hanging in the balance team saw hang on for dear life in their respective conferences.

Analysis: New England Patriots vs. Philadelphia Eagles
"New England Beats Philadelphia. Seven hundred ten tight game. Your boy Ataman throws a touchdown pass What do we make of these teams right now? Well I mean I think the entire takeaway for Philly fans is predicated on what you think of New England if you think think. New England is the Super Bowl. Contending team which I think there are a super bowl. Contending Tamed Sound Down on now. Though it sounds like your your little awesome while you worry about the offense and she do I mean like how could you not and you worry about stopping the red eye. Eagles went away from a little bit. They were down Jordan. Howard I think if you look at it that outweigh it's not the worst? Lost Eagles had all season. But of course it's the biggest loss because it's the latest and now they're five hundred nece was like they put themselves in a position where losses to Atlanta and in Detroit and teams like that amounted up and made this a must win and of course in the NFC. Nothing's truly a must win but we mentioned the eagles struggles with Dallas earlier. Everybody has to over simplify things and make it a win thing and I just got actually got a tweet from A guy earlier one of the listeners owners definitely from Boston like Oh crooked. Cancel the pod Ryan at Ryan at Chris. Because he doesn't want to you know. Take the eagles offense to task. The offense was bad. Dude Carson didn't play take that twelve but like Carson Carson didn't play Great Lake but guess what you've been touting this patriots it's defense all year is the best of all time or in that in that and we have come down to earth bit but you gotTa pick one because Carson not having a perfect game against these guys with down the starting running back down to Sean Jackson down. Alshon Jeffery down both tackles at one point in the game by by the way when Lane Johnson leaves early early. That's a big deal. Carson was pressure twenty. Two out of forty eight snaps again. He holds the ball long too long sometimes so that stat his snapped releases relevant the longer longer you hold it the more. You're going to get pressured. But he had four incompletion role in that final drive. I didn't think he had agreed. Asli bag game but it was funny to me that in a game where the goat who still a really good player was all over the place. The first avenue set a record for incompletions and a half. It's the first game. He played an entire game. You didn't leave bleed. The Patriots and touchdown passes shutout Jules. I just think like are we going to be mad at Brady to a I. I know whence isn't the goat and he doesn't get that kind of slack but that's a team who offensively has to hurry up and figure some things out for the for the level of expectation in New England to be met and of course Romo Romo who I love every time Brady missed the throw is the wind. Every time went Smith stores like he missed another one there. And if this is the game you're GONNA TO GIVE UP ON WHENCE OVER I. You're giving up on Wednesday like as a franchise quarterback score on trees. I think you're you're you're shortsighted. Second this is not the game like he didn't didn't play that well but bro. That's the best defense in the league. Most people think right. That's what people think at this point Yeah they are San Francisco. You know San Francisco the team gave up fifty points to I mean Devi. Oh man done sound like rail exact science so I'm looking at it now. 'cause Devia was telling me these guys were both both the two thousand Ravens. Yeah now they are and I mean going into the week they still were way ahead of everybody else. I mean I was looking at the numbers this morning. They don't get updated Until until the Monday night or so we'll know more about inter you're right. I mean that San Francisco who in what last couple of weeks we're going. Oh wait a minute what what happened to these guys on Defense Pencil Not GonNa sit there and say then all of a sudden I still. I've always liked personnel better than New England's but New England's one holding a team down to ten after they gave up a bunch of yards to Lamar and those guys so I think the Brady thing it continues to be this thing. That's real his first half second half stuff it just felt like yesterday was just a grind. You know what I mean to grind for everybody. You know what I mean but you know how like if you have a buddy and you seem like walking somewhere and you're like what's wrong like just having a bad day. Yeah just arduous and soon as they got out of the house everything was a challenge and it just felt like the Brady and his movements. And maybe I'm doing too much here and maybe but I don't think I am. I think I'm right here. I really the the more I watch him this year. The more I think things just feel more challenging and I don't know if it's just because the offensive line I don't know it's because no gronk you know it could be all of these things collectively but I think even the biggest patriots fan has to admit and some private moment that you know. Maybe this is what it looks like for the end of Tom and then as soon as I say that out loud goes probably was so who knows. I'm not willing to do that because I'm not going to be the guy what I'm saying is though that poses the question to you. I mean you're forty two forty three years old. You'RE GONNA have I bad days where the ball is not just zip off your arm You know outside the Hashes Brady Brady is still going to have them in a position to compete for the whole thing at the end of the year even with the lack of Gronk with the lack of Devlin with the line problems with some of the drops he had yesterday. But I would ask you this. The Eagles secondary has been much maligned. The Patriots Defense has been called one of the best ever right. So why are we sitting here talking about and Tom didn't have a great game. You know who had about the same game as Tom Carson. They both they both had bad throws. But we're sitting here and I know that the go gets a lot more leash 'cause he's the goat and he's going to have his team where they need to be and I'm a huge fan. So don't don't mistake. This is a Tom Critique but people have not gray days Tom will tell you that Carson had not great day against one of the best defense of all time and if you look at these two these two offenses they both fallen awful lot. Since that's your boy. I think the Eagles Miss Frank Reich. I think they may they miss de Filippo. I think they had a lot of injuries but the pats have a lot of injuries and they've fallen on off a lot since that super bowl. Our defense in seventeen was much better than the not much better. It's better than the eagles defense right now. We have more pieces. They put up six hundred plus yards yards. Offensively on US yesterday was like you said a struggle and so I think there's concerns for both offenses here. One obviously has a much better cushion and a defense defense. That's GONNA keep me in every game.

"Let's get into the Games for Sunday pain we can start at Lucas oil stadium we're we're looking at Indianapolis a modest one point home favourite total in this game forty seven at Fox but of course to Houston Texans have been dynamic of late F one four out of their last five covered the last four have a little bit of playoff revenge on their minds for a game that they were dominated by Andrew Luck in company to the tune of twenty one seven season ago and in a unique scheduling quirk or call it what you will both teams actually enter Sunday's game fresh off a victory against the Kansas City chiefs interesting did not know that why Chins I didn't know I didn't really realize that listen I think when we look at this matchup we look at this game we're starting to see what the Texans offense has the potential to be right with a little help up front we've kind of seen flashes the last few seasons of you know in the lead offense when it's healthy Wendy Shawn Watson has it rolling and he's confident is a passer which you look the last two weeks Houston's had the best pass protection in the Watson air and I think that's pretty important moving forward the ground game has also been on fire something that the Houston Texans could not do last year was run the ball consistently would fizzle out constantly in the red zone and it's because I think they found some consistency upfront finally right you found your five guys as the talent is playing spots I think that suit them best in you're looking through the last two weeks eight pressures fifty six percent of runs of grades so now let's see if that continues because it's it's it's a two-game sample it's a byproduct of probably facing the chiefs and Falcons defenses and I think also the right is Howard injury at right tackle could shake up some of that piece of this that I've kind of been alluding to their other thing in this match up that's kind of caught my attention and it kind of is a a broader point a topic that we've discussed Ad Nauseam ruin knows at this point we liked the coach's coaching staff of the colts were not fond of it for the Houston Texans and I think coaching tends to matter when the opponent is familiar and everybody kind of knows what each other wants to do and it's the coaching staff that comes out and has the power Henschel or ability to make adjustments and make changes and I think the team that does that rise probably the colts and you look last season these guys play each other three times in the I meeting which was the first time Frank Reich saw this team Shawn Watson has seven point one yards per pass in week four that number tumbles to five point three per pass in week fourteen and then you had the quick turnaround Wildcard Game Watson was held a four point two yard pass at home and I think that's interesting it's something that you have to talk about here there's another element play and it's one we've talked about I think we talked about it on the Monday night breakdown of the new CBA about home teams coming off the bye and they generally haven't performed overly well it's you know about forty one percent of the time they're covering think it's positive if you've done some reading this week Frank Reich iterative that this was not a time to vacation that this was rest recover and mentally focused on the bye week there was no vacation time no one was allowed to travel so it would make me nervous in a pick em game choosing bill over Frank Reich and you know it just it that becomes magnified when you have two weeks the game plan
