Browns Make It Official
"We will start with the official news out of Cleveland Scavenge to ban skis hired by the browns. They announce officially on Monday. He's thirty seven. Spent fourteen seasons as an assistant in Minnesota but has never been a head coach at any level level his entire. NFL coaching career. As I mentioned has been with one organization the Minnesota Vikings Stansky took over play calling duties on offense late in the two thousand eighteen season. Minnesota ran the ball. Forty seven percent of the time with Danske asked the play caller. That's the second highest rate in that span trailing only the Baltimore Ravens was introduced at a press conference just a little while ago. I the foremost success starts with people and I know we'll talk a lot about culture but it is absolutely about the people and everybody knows the Harry Truman quote. It's amazing what you can accomplish when no one cares who gets. That's the credit and that's what I believe. We have in our building. We have great people. I know we're going to add to it will hire G. G. M. here in the next week can or two and we're going to add to this culture that that we're building here and we have the right people and again. I can't stress enough. How excited I am the be? Just a part of did you know to use a basketball terms to my dad can understand this. I want to be the point guard for this organization. I want to bring the ball up then I wanNA share the basketball and let so what else get an easy bucket though smiling over there. WE'RE NOT GONNA I'M NOT GONNA speak anything into existence right now I can. I promise you that we're GONNA work. I've already spoken to a few of our players already. And that's what I'm about I'm about working and I'm about putting a foundation together the other. We will be methodical about it. We will not skip. Step two two and three to get to four. We're GONNA start in the foundation and then we're going to reinforce foundation Shen said we can build upon it and when I'm talking about this I'm talking about schemes and technique will be diligent about working with our players so that they can develop into the the best versions of themselves and ultimately we're building a foundation for what we hope is a championship. Effort will have a culture of accountability. We'll have structures is in place the players will understand our rules. And what we're about and we're going to demanding and we're going to hold each player accountable. Because ultimately I know this about players they they May Not come out and ask you for that. But that's what they want. Well perhaps the tenth. TIME IS THE CHARM IN CLEVELAND. Stansky is the tenth full time head coach Wjr. The browns have hired since returning to the League in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine that is the most in the league over that span of the previous nine. None have posted a winning record. Heard and not a single one has lasted more than four seasons continuity and consistency has been a real issue in Cleveland. Victor certainly something they'd like to you see changes to fanciest step in the right direction. In your opinion will I believe he is and I think that consistency where it is important. And right because you put up that list of all the coaches and the coaches that they've they've pretty much funneled through throughout the years can you provide that level of stability that they've been seeking for almost a year in and year out. Can you provide that for their now. The thing I do like about Stansky a fan ski is that he has experience with creating plays for two star receivers and I think that's something that's going to have to translate over to the Cleveland. Browns obviously with Odell Beckham junior junior and Jarvis Landry and having that experience I'm sure enticed of that for an office inside bring him in and understanding that they got to get the best out of these players in the best out of all their play makers obviously nick included In the backfield now is he going to be a leader of men and he is he going to be able to handle. The Eagles and the different personalities is that are in that locker room. Desk the biggest question that still remains to be seen. It's defense gas interviewed with the browns. Before in fact it's believed that he was the first source of politics but Desta several seasons ago and and it didn't work out. Matt you spent time with him as part of that Minnesota Vikings Organization. What can you tell us right? He he was a young quarterback coach at the time. And so when I got there was actually a little bit older than he was which is an interesting dynamic but at the same time. He's been all around that building. You know he's an administrative assistant and when he started there then. He was a quarterback coach. He's I've been with the running backs he's been with the wide receivers so he's been in all the different elements of the offensive side of the ball. He's seen the ups and downs. He's seen how free agency can impact so he's got a great feel feel. He's a great leader. He's got a presence about himself in the other thing that I think that the Cleveland browns are probably drawn to is the simple fact that this is a very quarterback friendly offensive structure that he's presented presented in for a guy like Baker Mayfield that had had his struggles last year. And maybe some confidence issues. Maybe not though. Let's see the press conference the same time. It's a quarterback friendly. There's a lot of play action. There's a lot of movement of the pockets. A Lotta easy throws to be made screen. And then there's like you said that balance forty seven percent percent of the time the run the ball. There's great balance in that offensive structure in for a young quarterback and going into his third year after some struggles. I think this is a great fit for that organization Asian and going back to when they actually made this higher People in Cleveland were telling me that it was actually his run game because we see what he was able to do with Dowling Cook and how he was able to make become a good player to really a great one and he's a central part of that offense that we now see in Minnesota and that was a big part of it but in terms of now Cleveland going forward looking for GM the way it was explained to me is they really want these to head coach and gm to work as one. This is why they moved on. From John Dorsey Percy and Freddie Kitchens. They didn't feel like this was working together. So they're looking for someone who has the same vision and the analytics department obviously is of of crucial part of Cleveland. And what they're looking for a head coach and I think that's why Stefanski became that lead candidate because he's accepting of it. He wants to be part of that and You know I think I saw some reports out there about how Cleveland is demanding that their head coach presents the game plan to ownership and really the way it was explained to me. It's not so much that they want to see the game plan. They just want everyone to be in sync to go over to make sure they're all on the same page headed into the game. Well you can't blame him and and that is something that clearly was not the case. I think you make a great point. It's poor in that somebody come in and be able to work and mold Baker Mayfield but also be able to be the CEO and run this whole organization and have everybody else be accountable. I think Freddie Kitchens might have had one of those two things that went by the wayside outside the quarterback with the hiring in Cleveland. What it does mean? Is that every chair on the head. Coaching carousel is now accounted for. The browns were the fifth and final team to hire a new head coach in the off season. Three of the hires tires Stefanski as we just discussed Joe Judge with the giants and Matt Raw and Carolina our first time. NFL head coaches the other two quite the contrary contrary Mike McCarthy in Dallas Ron Rivera in Washington they will get a second chance or in some cases third or fourth various established. NFL head coaches of of all the five. Who Intrigues you? The most in their new spot intrigues me is Matt Rule. I WanNa see what really transpires here right. He seven years sixty million dollar contract. That's a big commitment big commitment. I mean we might need to think about going into coach. That's it has everything else that they're also saying that they're making a commitment to Cam Newton with the type of style and the offensive structured. That they've set up McCaffrey's there I mean they've got the pieces of the puzzle there now. It's interesting to see how that that offensive structure from college translates to the NFL. which is I mean? There's been guys like chip Kelly in the past right John Harbaugh's price guy. That's been the most successful but that was more of a pro style offense with the most the most recent Kingsbury in Arizona so cliff Kingsbury. Excuse me it's been a mixed bag. There's no question. Let me ask you this just circling back to something you said by hiring Matt rule it you believe this means a commitment to Cam Newton. Can you explain why why I just think that The Baylor and watching their offense of structure and the RPO that takes place that's run pass options and all the different things that they're well versed in and that the Baylor offense has been historically historically very successful with in terms of that offense of structure I just think that that Fits Cam Newton's game very well and so I believe that that's a statement saying look. We wanted to bring somebody in here that you're going to be comfortable in this type of offense of structure and go out and be able to put yourself in a position to have success extent to intrigue you for me. Is Joe Judge my beloved giants. I think well I just think because going into it. Once I saw the Vacancy Happen at the head coaching position I was all right. The giants are GonNa come in here and get either like a Ron Rivera type or even McCarthy and get a guy that will come in and commanding presence. Once he walks into the building and I think with the hiring of Joe Judge just left me like okay I. It felt like the same cycle almost felt like coach mcadoo a couple years ago when you give a guy a shot and bring him in if he can transcend The coaching position or the year. After that when you bring in Pat Shurmur and you try to bring take a chance on another guy. Felt like we're taking another chance on another guy but granted. I must say I loved after the press conference I loved his mannerisms I love. He literally embodied what the New York Giants Football Organization is all about when he stepped up there on that podium Liam so I say that with a grain of salt because I love the press conference and I think he's going to bring something different than the other two coaches did in the past. But I still left me scratching my head in terms of who was out there here in the type of guys that could've came in that building and commanded a present these guys by the way Matt Rule and Gioja Geno. It's not about winning the press coverage but they did rule who was must see TV. I was just watching. He's missing time with the giants. Who so I knew all about? He's got does I think you know obviously recruiting such a big part of being a head coach in college. You don't mean to recruit You know when you're in the NFL. Which is why? I'm an agreement with you. I think that is the most enticing match COPA or at least the situation of the coaches just because you just look at history and making that jump from college the NFL. It's not easy and there just hasn't been a high success rate there. I think obviously he spent a little time with a giant. So it's not like he's
Kevin Stefanski is the Browns' new head coach
"Melissa the Cleveland Browns were the last team that we're looking for a head coach and they have found one here said to hire Vikings offense of coordinator Kevin Stefanski as their new head coach the fancy was a finalist for the job last year it went to Freddie kitchens instead and he was fired after one season of what you went six and ten and I was defensive coordinator Robert Sala was up for that job but obviously he is staying in Santa

Browns Dismiss GM John Dorsey Days After Firing Head Coach Freddie Kitchens
"Let's get to it Sadly adly mark we gotta start with the browns. How did we get back here? We're back we're back to the bounds being the browns. They have fired yet. Another general manager her Cleveland parted ways with John Dorsey. After two years on the helm the team announced made that move official after it was reported in multiple places. The decision to move on from Dorsey comes just two days after the Brian Brown's fired head coach Freddie Kitchens at the conclusion of the regular season Dorsey had a meeting with. Jimmy has them the team owner earlier. Tuesday the two sides according to Tom Palacio We're talking about possible. Structural changes that would curb Dorsey authorities GM but when the two sides can come to an agreement it was over mark Feels like Cleveland. Even though the better roster is back to square one in terms of dysfunction and just in general question marks about the present and the future and I can't and even begin to understand how you must feel the frustration of well. I'm of two minds because the first is they're just more proof that the browns the constant mode is sort of developing farce. I mean whatever whenever you think that they've turned a corner. They're actually just going in a circle back to where they were before for. And there are a lot of disturbing reports and whispers coming out of Cleveland that the ownership and we know this is not not shocking. Can you think about it. But the but they continue to be very impatient with all their decisions and the people they hire and so the question now and I think that the I've never seen the fan base this deflated because of where they were a year ago at this time. Or let's say seven months ago to now but because it just doesn't seem to matter to most people who they hire and it's too it's too de energizing using to get excited about fill in the blank coach and the from the other side though I will say this had they kept John Dorsey. It would've narrowed the candidate list of who was gonNA come and work with that next team by a lot so I think if you're going to keep doing this but do you agree with that. Dorsey wasn't the guy to be leading the charge. Because everyone seems it to be an agreement that he was a guy that came in the obviously inherited. Sasha's bountiful gifts and had some hits has mrs but had some big hits to me it all feels a little premature to take him out of the equation but this organization has done. There wasn't a straight firing right. They just say couldn't get different visions on how they saw the football operation going full hundred percent. I think they wanted to keep them and they talked about how much they liked him. But John Dorsey is probably very prideful and not going to take what is it what is when you're changing title it also demotion what else is it and the thing is he he. It's hit. It was his decision number one to go with Freddie Kitchens and they they ignored Paul does recommendations of Kevin Stefanski DEEPA. Desta also wanted. Sean McDermott in the past. So I think what they were saying. Was We kind of trust. Paul Podesta's voice in in this at this time around and that's not something that again. It's kitchens fall. It's a soup of Dursey for hiring kitchens more recently. Stunning fall though we were at the owners meetings and at that point John Dorsey was the toast of the NFL. I read them in the top five of my GM rankings. no-one no-one said Oh that's that's too high. I mean like it was very recent who is five. Oh who's right behind him. Thomas demetre was five. Kevin Colbert over three but It is amazing how much talent he acquired in a short time and he's gone but I think they've gotten it wrong so many times of not having the GM and the coach align that act. I do like I like I think that needs to be on the same page. Yes at every time. So I'm fine with it. It's deflating to the point of heartbreak for for Browns fans that last year at this time this job was seen as one of the most coveted in the league with a young talented nucleus. And you're finally going to bring the winter to Cleveland and now it's senior reading reading stories that executives say that's the one place I would not go and you're right back to where you were if some of these coaching tree scenarios were cal Shanahan and has a number of people interviewing with the browns. He was there he's he. He demanded his way out of the building. You got you know the bill. BELICHICK's of the world are going to be telling these guys be careful because yes. It's great for you to go on and get a head coaching job. But the DNA here is that you won't be there. Four hundred as has made it clear in his press conference Thursday that the coach would be part of hiring the GM which sounds weird. But I know that's fine but it means that the coaches ultimately the GM's boss Asif you get hyper and that's fine as long as it's defined ahead of time if that helps them get mcdaniels fancier whoever it is that they want in the door. That's fine it it just makes makes it clear that it's the coach. That's in charge and function and dysfunction always starts at the top and sports and since the has them's joined there on their fifth took over team. They're on their fifth coaching search and seven years and John Dorsey is the fifth different person or group heading up the football operation in that same seven seven year that has to be unprecedented. I mean there are at least just third that work in at least the third that only had one year really which is why
"freddie kitchens" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"A be showing up with people just it's a lot lot. The browns disappointing season came to a quiet on yesterday. Losing to the Bengals thirty three to twenty three and following the loss. The browns fired Freddie Kitchens after his first full season as head coach so Shannon. How responsables kitchens for the browns six and ten record Kalay? Hi De que. More than one year skip look.

You see the video him into it with a fan and the fan. Somebody wanted fourteen team with the by the beach. You come into my face. What else is new now now but it was like go okay? I still don't blame Freddie Kitchens as much as I blame John Dorsey for elevating because he was like a clown act. He wasn't remotely qualified for this job. It was doomed to fail from the start. He'd never been a head coach. He was only a coordinator for the first time. The back half of last quarterback recommended all right because he thought he was his big brother right and yet John Dorsey profootballtalk reported. He's not safe. Either I don't think he should be because this was a ridiculous move to start with their allows the problem. Because what if what if Cleveland has this to Mr has owned the team eleven head coach. Let's get you can't have this kind of turnover and hope for stability. You he doesn't he. Doesn't you coach a team. Stop trying to be. Everybody wants to be Jerry Jones Kim.

You won't let anybody having Mr -bility skip you gotta have stability to build something. I don't know I am not giving up on Baker Mayfield play. He showed you the first year he can play.

"freddie kitchens" Discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock
"And quite possibly put a dagger Agra and the browns postseason aspirations. Pittsburgh beat Cleveland Twenty to thirteen on Sunday. The biggest talking point after the game was Cleveland coach Freddie Kitchens choice t shirts on Friday. Kitchens was photographed. A movie theater wearing a Pittsburgh started. T. Shirt which is a reference to the myles Garrett Mason Rudolph may lay that marred marred the ending of the Pittsburgh Cleveland Game Two weeks earlier steelers players ripped kitchens after yesterday's game. Ramon foster called it unprofessional and said it was something steelers coach. Mike Tomlin would never do fellow offensive. Lineman Dave decastro labeled the t shirt stupid and bulletin board material. is the t shirt controversy. Much Ado about nothing I say. No the shirt is significant. It's an indication of mindset and unhealthy. One that is permeated the Cleveland Locker Room all season and the browns are victims. That's been my narrative on them. All Season Odell Beckham during your infected the Cleveland Organization where they losers victimhood mentality the stint stint. BJ's mindset stretches all the way to the owner's box last week browns owner D has them came to the game wearing a hat supporting miles gear. There's no accountability accountability. In Cleveland. Pittsburgh started it tells you everything you need to know about the culture in Cleveland. It's a culture for losers victims irresponsible and people controlled by emotions. That's poisonous football team a volleyball team a golf team or any team. We're responsible men and women work. There are no victims in sports. There're there're conquerors and those who have been conquered oh. BJ wakes up every day looking to prove the NFL or society has treated him unfairly every weekend. He found an excuse complain about this alleged persecution. The mentality has built him a great social media following but he's not a winner. Mike Tomlin is a winner as Tomlin blink blink. Once this season he lost been no problem. He Lost James Conner. No Problem Antonio Brown and Bell jumped ship. No problem title Marcel. Keyes pouncey suspended. No problem remember. When jets coach Adam Gates announced that Sam darnold would be out with mono case look like his dog and entire tire? Family have been lost in a plane crash victim. Loser jets are four and eight. The steelers are seven and five. You can't win in sports or in life where they loser's victim mentality the entire mainstream. Sports media is obsessed with imposing the victimhood mentality. One Athletes Colin Kaepernick is their God and Rachel grievances their religion. They love nothing more than to convert Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson but this dude has a winner mentality throughout the season. He has shown up to his postgame news conferences wearing a t shirt that reads. Nobody cares work harder yesterday after Ravens. beat the forty. Niners the Marcet. If you want to be the best gotta you got to work hard. At being the best if they're doubting you work harder it don't matter mindset matters the mind controls behavior and heavily influences outcomes Freddie Kitchens in the browns took the field with the wrong attitude and Pittsburgh finish them. Our guys myself starts out as Freddie Kitchens t-shirt a big deal. Yes it's a big deal. Now there are two realities at play for me. One is the reality of the impact of this t shirt on the football field. XS and OS has no impact. We know what that is. It's about what you're going to do an moment of truth. How prepared you are how urgent you are in those situations? But when you're you're talking about a head coach in terms of representation in terms of you being authority figure. This is just plain immature. This is a guy who doesn't have. This is directly focused on the prize. For whatever reason outside chatter has motivated him to a place that he will represent himself self which is representing this ball club in this fashion. I'm still a quote from an been Horowitz former Columbia alumni great vc up in Silicon Valley who who says about the game of football you have to find a way to sell trust through communication in the military ristic game. And he said the dead and he wasn't talking about football necessarily but talk about his world of of business and is so true coaches have to give you the perception they have to sell L. U. These perceptions so that you can form the reality and when you start putting this out there yeah understand that it's not gonNa make me score a touchdown but also so going to give me what Jason is a loon to the reactions and is going to give me the opportunities to not necessarily go all in. And that's what he did provided them climate a culture where they will have to be all asset they were not a franchise they were football team and I think one Brady Pinga was on the show when I say back yeah absolutely you said it. You gotta live with it guessing. I'll tell you that Freddie kitchen. Well this is why it's not a big deal. Because I wasn't guessing right we we I've known who they are. They're they're they're not what people have made them out to be with. The additions is that they have made. They are who they are I. It's interesting you didn't mention the benching of Mason Rudolph and you're whittling as well. You mentioned losing levy on bell the. ABC's situation Marquees gets suspended. You went to your third string quarterback and won that game with a young receiver receiver and your defense. When you're looking at the culture that has been built in Cleveland? And you show the owner having the Mouse Garrett support of of the hat on. You're talking to a spokesperson. They threw kitchens daughter under the bus. Ends daughters gave the shirt to kitchens and he wore the shirt to the movies. Not a big deal. I wore my jacket over the shirt. It's a very very interesting and telling L. Ing piece of information that says all that you need to know you got the home me as the head coach. The home is the head coach. You don't have have a leadership authoritative figure that can lead that group of men that they have in that locker you have the home and that became very evident when he rocked that t-shirt to a public place and to me. You get what you pay for. And they have what their results with. Both you guys. The only thing thing that I would say is that this t-shirt is the expression of a culture like Jason talked about how lack discipline they lack accountability which ultimately leads to on the field performance. It's because that's exactly how they've played this year. I mean the Cleveland Browns. You just look at raw physical talent. They are like most talented team or at least one of the most talented teams in the NFL. But why are they underwent lack of accountability lack of discipline. And you know the myles Garrett situation was like the tip of the spear that just demonstrating that. That's that's exactly what that culture was and all the sudden you got your head coach kind of making a joke about it. It shows. He doesn't care about accountability discipline. And that's why we see very talented team in the Cleveland. The browns under performing. I don't WanNA leave ownership off the hook here because ownership is responsible for everything the reason why the home as the head coach is because has ownership the reason why is because ownership in in rather than having some true dynamic vision of how they want their organization to run. They felt Oh. Baker Mayfield was hot last year. And he likes Freddie Hitches. Let's hire Freddie Kitchens. That's crazy and then not having the confidence away. Hey we're building a culture here and yes oh. BJ Is really talented but with our young quarterback and first year head coach do we really WanNa drop ob Bj into the middle of our situation. I might even. Ob Jay is. He is talented wide receiver but his attitude can be overwhelming. And when you drop it on a rookie quarterback and rookie head coach. I think that's a bit much particularly drivers Landry's Al.. They had the number one wide receiver drivers Landry's Anthony's playing well. They should have doubled down on what they had last year with Greg Williams as the interim coach and then when I see ownership show up when the League has has come down on your player and he's Club somebody over the head the matter how much sympathy you have for him. I wouldn't be wearing my sleeves. That's a private conversation between new and miles but when you show up with the number on your hat we did nothing wrong. They started it all trickles down from the top from ownership on now and no wonder wondered Freddie put on the t shirt and that was the point I was getting at I mean. I know I'm always being accused historically of pointing out ownership. But that's when I start my my statement. Is You have a football team. Not a franchise that does start with the leadership and ownership and and for me when I look at you wearing that shirt that says that says to me that ownership is okay with it and saying that you know what there's always going to be an excuse or reason as to why we come up short and that's a culture that has to be changed if you're going to. I don't care how much talent you have. That's a culture that you need need to change. If you're going to win well all of us. I believe you played it with the Redskins to where the owner is and gives you speak to that the best. Where if the owners his dabbling in football operations it just turns out to be a disaster because undermines that coach Undermines Jaji? In this case I don't think undermines head coach kind of enables the head coach points director. This is a dumb point because I'll be contradicted by record but I don't have a problem with ownership being and involve I. I liked the way Jerry Jones involved. And that's the stupid part because they haven't won a super bowl and blah blah blah. But I like Jerry. Jones has a clear vision of what he wants from the Dallas Cowboys. Robert Kraft I think has one for the New England patriots but ownership has to be involved in the the right way and has to be sure of itself and to me. I'm just tell you. I just feel like Freddie. Kitchens is mimicking the the culture and the mindset of ownership and it's easy to beat up on Freddie but maybe if he had better leadership come from up top maybe he'd be a better leader. Yeah to your point. It's easy for the viewing audience to understand. All players. Want the same thing out of their career. Not all players are thinking about a Lombardi. Ready Trophy listened to testify one. I never thought about Lombardi trophy. I was trying to get them checks. Okay and there are other guys who were like me. Point being is amazing. We understand understand it. All the players are equipped to be winners and all the players don't have the desire to be winners. They WanNa win individually now when we look at ownership somehow somehow someway we universally think that they all are equipped and they all have this desire to win and win but in reality some of them were just taking the gate and just what maybe ratings concessions licensing deals this. This is an example of someone who is not necessarily on the same prize as we ultimately the other point a lot of people at that level of wealth by football teams or sports teams as just so people know not not just so people will know who they are and.

"Ravens of scored twenty plus points in nineteen th straight game so a lot of people are saying well Baltimore's offense can be stopped opt. Listen it's it's November December. You'RE NOT GONNA score thirty five. The weather's rough I still thought their offense. At least situationally was very good. They also are the best kicker in the world ruled which means they get closer to not matic three points and for the record. I thought Jimmy G. and the niners played very very well to go on the road. And and that bet game I thought thought Stanford Cisco Played Great First Half I've got no big hot. Take care if they meet for the Super Bowl. I'd be very happy. Titans colts out of luck and electoral. Good there one in four last. Five Games Jacoby percents. Fine one or fewer touchdown passes in five straight games. That's what a a great offensive line. Jacoby percents the starter in this league. But he's a lower end starter. Andrew luck the energy has left the building they have to play almost perfect football. The wind now and the Texans are GonNa win that division Brown steelers Pittsburgh finished it Freddie. Kitchens wore a shirt this week. That said Pittsburgh started referring referring that ugly browns-steelers May Pittsburgh seven and five now holds the second wildcard spot. I don't think Pittsburgh's a playoff team. I don't think buffalo is is and I think Tennessee feels like a playoff team This is not good enough. Freddie Kitchens probably a great guy I have a source within that said he was a fun loving loving high energy. Everybody love Freddie Kitchens as a position coach. Just feels like the Peter Principle. He was given a job way over his head jets bengals. It's it's not darnold. Sam was fine twenty-eight for forty eight two hundred forty yards no turnovers battle line must have had six drops. Sam darnold not the problem here. They had ten penalties The jets right now of the number I think nine pick in the NFL draft. I almost wonder if to trade down get more picks you cannot win consisted consistently in this league with a bottom five offensive line. Sam Darnold wasn't the problem. He's Fine Eagles Dolphins Punter Kicker Punter Matt Hack who touched down to kicker Jason Sanders in the history of the NFL. Well it happened back in nineteen seventy seven so it. It doesn't happen much first. Time ever known the Super Bowl by the way. It's the first kicker to catch a touchdown since seventy seven the first time ever in the Super Bowl era era upon her his throne yourselves to the team. Let's get the two most unathletic guys and you guys play catch near the end zone. The whole thing just looked like it was a disaster waiting to happen but it did before the snap. Yeah I loved it though Redskins Panthers. Good for Cam. Listen after a five and one start kyle is being exposed as a backup Ron Rivera. He May Clean House here but I feel like this morning joining. You may draft a quarterback but I think you you probably bring cam back for one. More year he's popular Kyle is a transitional guy and not a the great one Don't be shocked. Ron Rivera his name. If he gets flushed out Dallas cowboys to do worse than Ron Rivera. They could doers bucks jags. Nick Fool's gold nick. foles bench for Gardner Menchu four years. Eighty eight million. I like Nick Foles He caught not lightning in a bottle in Philadelphia. You know if you take out Philadelphia. He's like five and eleven as the starter. He's a backup. He's a really good backup and Tim. Tebow Mark Sanchez. Nick foles you can get lightning in a bottle. It happens You Know Stan Humphries got to a super bowl. Rex Grossman got to a super bowl. It happens.

"He's got the a yellow jacket. He's got the hall of Fame Ring. He's got all the things hall of famers have seventeen years in the. NFL Miss Two Games in his career. How are you look at you just bouncing around today? Yeah a little little nut bar whatever. Yeah I needed. After the holidays man I went after it did you now when I went for Gala Sugar Start Strahan's birthday and so. He had cakes on his morning show then. We had cake Thursday night show and I mean the guy so people send them anyway. That thanksgiving too much sugar and I totally get it. But I got all right so now Monday night football viking. Seahawk you made a bold prediction on the air as a former chief. The chiefs. Play the Vikings. You've been on a year on the Vikings all year. I'm not a kirk cousins. Fan Era Cousins Fan. What is it about Minnesota? You like. They play Seattle tonight. They got a complete team. I mean they have an Gr- great offence. I believe Dow Cook when the best running backs in the league guy gets the ball. And that's where it starts on the offensive side of the ball. That's what every quarterback in the NFL would would love to have because it sets the tone. So you got Alvin Cook. You Got Adam you've got digs. You got a good set of tight ends nerve Smith Smith and Rudolf. They're using him now in the red zone and then Grizzlies Kurt. I love. I love what he's doing to go along with that defense look at his numbers. There's this year you you look at the prime time. He's won two Primetime Games. That was the knock on him. He couldn't win in prime time. Then now this game tonight gone on Monday night football against somebody who else is supposed to be the MVP or the League which is Russell. What right now? Lamar Jackson is the MVP. But after that it's Russell Wilson Right. Yeah look look at the numbers that Kirk cousins putting up versus Russell Wilson's numbers this year. They're almost identical even a little bit better in some areas so I think this is a perfect opportunity. For Kirk go out out there and show the world and show himself like hey. I'm one of the best quarterbacks in the league. They paid me like that and they have a superbowl caliber team. Oh by the way. He's always been accurate that it's never been a question. He was a great college quarterback he was good in Washington. He's good in Miami. It's not that he can't play he's a little small doesn't stretch the defense and he tends to be a guy that needs Salaam around him well right now his reality is he's got a lot of that's his reality. By the way Alex Smith won a lot of games when had guys around him. So you tend to be a It's funny you said something to me the other day. That was fasting for those of you. That don't know Tony I I I kinda know Tony bears a great great very serious person and you do a lot of philosophy and you did not tell me the other day you said I wish I would have had as much fun as Gronk. You're a very serious committed pro athlete and you and you told me are there day. You're saying you know. Sometimes I wish I had more fun. I didn't. I wasn't a big fun guy. Yeah so when I saw the Freddie kitchen shirt. I'm thinking that wouldn't that's not you. Aw You would be if you were. If you saw your coach wearing that I mean my takeaway is not to be mean. It's just what I would do a jerk but but it's like that's not Mike Tomlin Bell. Check Sean Payton. That's not what they would do. Stupid stupid. Does I wouldn't have liked that. There's no way a specially as I got. Oh shoot even when I was younger. I wouldn't like this because all it does is start a fire. Main Pittsburgh finished it. You saw the t shirts. That came afterwards. Edgy I I I think as a head coach this is incredibly immature is if we're going to be nice about Dick for meal. Yeah different never have done something he. He was almost refined. He owns a wineries. He's as elder statesman very sophisticated guy. Yeah don't don't you think though that this is maybe he's trying to play right to the locker room. This is. The new age would never have seen any quarterback. I mean any any coach in the NFL. Do something like this. Just a sign of the time I I don't know if it is. Here's here's what I think it is when you're trying to teams made bad choices all year. I mean some of the play calling end of the first half of the play calling by Cleveland average which people make more poor choices. I think when you're trying to curry favor with people you reach now. There's a lot of young coaches like. Sean McVeigh wouldn't do this. Because Sean mcvay is secured. He's been to a super bowl. I think when you're insecure you reach. You Brag a little more you do stuff and I think he's a guy that deep down knows he's a little over his skis it's unraveling is trying to kind of reach out. I want you guys and you know what it is. He's it's it's not a head coach now position coach. I've had position coaches do stuff like this. They do it all the time. I had position defensive. Line coach that that would come through the locker room wearing shoulder pads he put on a Jersey and shoulder pads before the game and was hype. Everybody up cussing and yelling. And Yeah you like it you. I like the players loved it. That's what a position coats. Does a head coach is the CEO. He's the face of the organization. You can't do that you just can't you. Just can't do it dollars others to it. Let me ask you about this. So the franchise tag in the. NFL is the engagement ring of football. I don't want you to leave. Give me but I'm not ready to get married so if the cowboys the rumor is this morning is they wanna Franchise Tag Dak Woo so so let me ask you as a pro athlete so you come into the NFL you massively outperform your contract. You won on the division and then when it's payday they're like Tony we're going to franchise tag so we'll pay a big money for a year. My question is would doc resent that because he has been a bargain basement. He's won the division twice and he makes a Dallas. Dj Does would you and your business. Would you resent the organization a little absolutely. I would have deep resentment. They would hurt my feelings. You're very vulnerable would be. I would go home and complain to whoever wants to hear him. I would complain out loud. I would tell even the papers the the Beck Look. I don't understand I feel like I've performed. I've done everything in this relationship I've communicated I have worked hard. I've stayed late. I've showed up early and and and I've won games more importantly in if you now you know when it comes time to put the ring on the finger let's go. Let's walk the I l.. Let's do this. Let's let's get married. It's how do you feel feel about this joy. I think it's ridiculous. I don't even know. I don't understand why he hasn't signed it. He's a franchise quarterback he wins. He wins he was but but obviously he's great at the microphone. He's never in any trouble. He does everything they asked him to do. I mean what are you say. Don't try to be happier than happy. John says he does is everything but beat good teams. There was a time when he teams. There's always upsets Goulet. But they were like it's not like he hasn't won big games it does. I would say this maybe Dax more mature than me. What's the difference between Carson Wentz and Dak Prescott well because the feeling is carson Wentz was a number one or two pick? He's just a better player. More talent that differs the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas cowboys right. Now or or Dow's wins more. Jared Goff getting the contracts I mean quarterbacks have gotten these contr- I I think. I I gotta be honest with you if I was back. I think I'd have a little resent feelings would be hurt. We also let's let's let's You know I love putting the shoe on the other foot if I'm Jerry Jones in speaking of relationships it's like I you know. Sometimes you just know it's like I just don't know I I haven't given me the feeling in my heart thing about this Tom Brady. Everybody passed him for five rounds. This is a hard position to evaluate. Oh you wait DAX in the league for years and it still split. I talked to GM's or like not into he wins. He's not everybody says I like his intangibles. I don't love his tangible. So this is this is. The hardest position in Sports in Dallas is basically saying we're still trying to evaluate him. Now that will you know what what guy just got done. Kirk cousins right. I mean it's the same Washington you a lot. Better with Kirk cousins and they would look at them. Look look who's WHO's hurt now. Look look. WHO's hurting now? So I I would sign him. If I'M THE DALLAS COWBOYS I would sign this kid because first of all what else do you got. You'RE NOT GONNA YOU'RE GONNA go out and develop another another pick. I mean I don't think it's going to happen. I would go with this so new England last night concern at all. I think they're just missing a big time over the top top receiver but concern when Tom. Everybody's panicking I don't I'm not. We've haven't we seen this before though they've only got two loss. I know the schedule. It hasn't been that tough but I think we saw last year. We say I think they're going to figure it out. I'd everybody's wanting so bad for the Patriots to crumble And everybody's trying to predict it and even this. I would even say even if Tom Brady is not there. I don't respect bill belichick enough to say that these people on the greatest coach of all time. You'd probably call him that I'd put them up there. So why do we think that it's just going to be over. All of a sudden Martin with them especially in the middle of the teams would would kill to be tend to or all saw. We play Kansas City and Baltimore. They may only have to play one. It's like the NC NC double A.. Tournament you go all. They can't boom boom boom boom but sometimes do Kentucky Michigan State Syracuse. All get beat. Yeah so the bottom line is you may only have to play Baltimore or Kansas. The city of Kansas City goes to Baltimore I watched the chiefs yesterday. I don't think you want any part of that. What of Kansas City goes to Baltimore and they beat them enabled them so yeah? You'd have after beat you're going to get you're GonNa win the division. You're going to get a by. I gotTa tell you something. Don't be shocked if buffalo goes on the road with that staff and that defense and beat to Kansas City. You're Baltimore in wouldn't be shocking to me So maybe end up playing buffalo again..

"Freddie Kitchen Jew played in the NFL for a lot of years in some teams over a decade Freddie Kitchens t-shirt research joy hated it. I'm I'm with joy. What did you make of it? you don't do that You just don't I mean that t shirts you wear if you cut in the yard and you're on your on your online more sitting with your buddies on your porch but you don't you don't do that because as a player you giving the team material and trust Russell fairly kitchen's not going to get hit he's not gonNA get tackled. He sent a call in place so I don't think I don't think you do that. I mean I mean as you would be ability to do that. I don't think he we know you could. You could hold him down. Put that on it. Okay let's talk about Jason Geared in the cowboys they're all one five against good teams back back to back weeks ballot. Check and Sean. McDermott appeared out coach. Jason Garrett we know we see their yards we know they have players and personnel. That's not the issue. Who would you go higher? Let's just bottom line it. If I'm going to hire a coach right yeah you know I would go higher urban Meyer. I mean that that's the guy would go after I mean. Look I look at Jerry Jones. He's fired two great Tom Landry and everybody thought Oh my gosh. If I if you do that you know anyone got Jimmy Johnson in College Guy College guy he was out call. I'll call urban. Meyer Jimmy Johnson. Two Point Zero you go hire a guy that is hot. HE DID IT AT UTAH. He did it boise. He did Ohio State House. Stay still winning and I think right now urban would be the perfect fit for the Dallas. I'm not a cowboy fan but I might even would have to like them just a little bit because the urban we'll know Jimmy's never been afraid to go to college. Route some owners. He did very switzer Jimmy Johnson and by the way Jerry played some college football so he loves Saturdays. You can tell Jerry you can tell. The cowboys organization loves SATURDAYS BECAUSE THEY DRAFT SO well. New England loves Sundays. They don't drag necessarily okay. Well so the cowboys know their college. Material their coaches their players. I WanNa talk about the saints. Be San Francisco Baltimore steals all the attention. A New Orleans drew breeze left for a while. They won all their games. And now they're back. You've liked the saints all year. And you for obvious. Reasons drew brees Sean Payton but when you in your era they were horrible aren't they. They were they were bad offensively. I mean they could move the ball table but boy would they hit you. I mean Rickey Jackson and Pat Swilling they had some linebackers the soul patrol. I remember that would hitch. So I'm GonNa tell you one thing about the saints the Saints. It's a very hard to beat in New Orleans in that stadium. I mean it's loud. It's tough to play there. I mean we played there twice last year and they got us the first first game and we got him the second game. You know what to call but we got the second game. But when I when I think about the saints the Saints did it with Teddy Bridgewater I like Teddy and now they have drew brees back. That team team plays very well on turf. If they stay at home you have to play them in in New Orleans. I don't think you can beat them. Well and they've had a break. ATLANTA'S AMASS CAMS CAMS gone Tampa Bay's influx. So they're piling up wins in their division and let's be honest about this. San Francisco's a good team. They they may end up being a five seed. I'll tell you this. I think my gut feeling this morning if I had to bet I would take the ravens against the seahawks and the Super Bowl all because I think Seattle schedule. They're going to end up. The niners are going to have to go up. MINNESOTA'S GONNA go have to go back I think Seattle is going to host the NFC championship being chip. What did you make of Baltimore yesterday? And San Francisco any any take on that thousands of very good football game You know when I think of you know what I'll Alexander mostly flip-flopped you know when you go back and think about two thousand thirteen to two thousand thirteen ravens against two thousand thirteen forty niners. Kelly Carlin cabinet played for the forty niners. Now that's Lamar Jackson place for the Ravens. You had flacco who played for Baltimore now. He plays for now. Greg Garoppolo is is flacco. North of pocket pocket GA The the the ravens that great defense the forty niners had a great defensive front. But you know I think the the the X. factor here is Greg Roman. You know who. Who's the Coordinator Ordination for Baltimore? Who had Colin Kaepernick and now look at Lamar Jackson? Who I think is a better quarterback even better athlete than calendar happening? Well he throws up first of all capture. Nick was talented but capper. Nick had no off speed pitch. You know even a screen pass was a dark dark Lamar's got a nice touch. Yep and so I think that's. That's the difference right. There you know with the Mar and you know what the teams if people say. NFL have time to figure it out too late now. Because you know it's playoff time almost and and you'll have time to figure it out you got you got to do a good on the move said this remember the wildcat so the wildcat offense was. We're going to hike the the ball to a running back. That worked for about three quarters of a season because the league was trying to catch up to it up to everybody and I think Baltimore reminds me of the Twenty Five Carolina Panthers so cam comes in and Kansas unique athlete and for about a year. The league's like okay. They got healthy at the end of the year they got hot. They played played with a lot of Swagger Baltimore's plan with a lot of confidence. They're a little trash talk and Carolina did and I do think go back to your years in the NFL. was there ever a team that got dot co Dot may have been the great show on turf and the League was playing catch up in season. I can tell you for sure but they never caught up the forty niners I mean seriously because plus they they they ran an offense that you really could not put your arms around the West Coast West Coast offense when you think you have it but you don't have it because that's the thing is they would throw short short short bone Jerry Rice Down the field so it was officiant and had the big component had the big plays in anything abounded bounded allocated Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens. Is they run. The football arena. Football is tough on the football team. You know the NFL is all about scoring. And what you to pass. The the ball ran. The football is not popular but it wears a defense down and they do such a good job of it. Well I can make the argument. The two best running teams when they're healthy. The Are San Francisco and Baltimore Ravens. You got for the record Seattle's running game with the the seventh rounder from Oklahoma State Carlson and penny any Chris Carson and the penny kid from San Diego State. Who's now played very well in the last few weeks so just a tip of the cap to the running backs? Nobody wants to play running back anymore. I see this but Baltimore and San Francisco to me yesterday. Felt like a heavyweight fight. Those are physical team is physical. They they were hitting their I mean like you say no one wants to run the football football you. That's how you win football game. You can run the football play defense and and they're going to have a quarterback. You just can't happen. Anybody backup quarterback you know you can win. You can win minute left half by the way. What do you make your rams dominating win solve everything? No I didn't solve everything you know is good win. I'm glad they won They beat a team. How you should be too bad team It's just a stepping stone. Lake they came back on good shellacking on Wedneday Nights. So Jared Goff look pretty good. He looked really good. If you give you some time you give them some time but you know the big thing is run the football with Todd Gurley. Todd is healthy. You know. Run the football and you'll see you'll see a different football team. Yeah when when when Jared Goff has time to throw he throws rose a beautiful football. He's not the kind of kid like Matt Ryan or Tom Brady. That you can put pressure on his feet..

Can we stop judging. Jim Harbaugh on this game. Jim Harbaugh has nine wins and when they go to a bowl and they'll probably be favored. They will win their tenth game. This will be the fourth time in five years. Jim Harbaugh is one ten games. This is not Ohio State Eight. This is Michigan Michigan. Historically wins nine games. He took over mass attire fire. Six and a half half win Brady hoke. He's now winning. On average nine point four games but call and pay him seven point five million who gives a rip all these guys make a lot of money. It doesn't matter what I make or what Jim makes. He had leverage. He has a good age it. He had been to a super bowl. He was going to make a bunch of money. The bottom line is he is absolutely doing. What is hard to do at Michigan? Same with Texas. Texas is not Oklahoma. The winningest coach in Texas. Football ever is Darrell Royal. His winning percentage is seventy seven percent. Oklahoma has four coaches. That have done better than that. Oklahoma's metal program. The winningest coach in Michigan verbal history is both Sham Boeckler.

"It again. Kevin rant bailed on Steph Curry for Kyrie Irving I've been watching the NBA for forty years. You'll get a guy in the lead. This happens all the time. There's always a couple of guys in the league great individual players. They're not good teammates. That's okay I mean you ever go to the YMCA and you're watching guy and you're like Oh my God is great. Nobody can stand him. Kyrie's difficult he does not make teams better. Lebron made him he bailed on the brawn. And that's what you got where Colin was raw. I predicted Bama and Clemson would play for a national title title. And that's not going to happen. Bam can't stop anybody. They couldn't stop Auburn in their freshman quarterback they couldn't stop Lsu last three times they face clemson. They can't stop them. I still still think it's a great program. But they've lost too many great assistance. They've lost too many players early. This is what happened to Pete Carroll. USC Mack Brown at Texas Alabama doesn't scare or anybody. Next year's offense is not going to be nearly as dynamic at running back quarterback or wide. Receiver you just can't keep losing great assistance like Kirby smart who who then goes to a rival and starts out recruiting you. They're not as good. They don't have as many good players. They'll still win ten games next year. But they're not a national Chan. They played good teams this year. They lost a both and couldn't stop. Either that's who they are. I was wrong where Colin was right. Nick foles got benched. Of course he nick foles goals listen. He hit lightning in a bottle on an unbelievable Philadelphia roster for a year and a half but now he's a four year eighty eight million dollar backup backup and that is the worst quarterback contract. you think kirk cousins contracts a problem this morning. It looks like a deal. This is a bad quarterback contract first three drives the turnovers. He's never been overly athletic. He's got a good arm not great. He's a backup who hit lightning in a bottle. By the way Tim Tebow won. Seven Straight Games. Mark Mark Sanchez got to an AFC championship a couple times. He's not an elite quarterback. He's not a twenty million dollar quarterback. He's a good kid who was going to retire a couple of years ago until he hid in Philadelphia with great offensive coaches. And now he's back to being. You Know Nick foles where Colin was raw. I predicted gus. Malzahn would be fired. Probably midseason at Auburn and he just beat Nick Sabin for the third time in his career. Gus Malzahn has been especially at home a big pain in the butt for neck. He outsmarted him on that final play of the game. What it put upon Iran and Nick was trying to rush people in? He's clever offensively. They recruit the heck out of the state and the region they got a ton of NFL guys. And Listen I. It's not easy when Alabama. Nick Sabin are in your state so they're not as good as Alabama but I didn't think he could withstand this year. They beat the Oregon ducks early. I thought that would be a problem. They beat Alabama. They had a de may have had the toughest schedule. That beat Texas am. I was wrong. I thought he was going to get rolled. I predicted predicted. It and I missed on that one so there you go. I got some stuff Jerry Jones last week I was asked about the Dak Prescott negotiation. And here's here's it's what Jerry said. Let me just say this. I think all of us including the fans want to win a damn football game. Okay now I know we've got a lot of other things to think about. Who's coach who's playing? Who's compared to another the player someplace asked about less winsome ballgames folks? We'd take at other stuff. I'm I'm not known as the guy who gets hand crabs. When I'm writing checks there are a lot of reports that the cowboys and they're good on this personnel thing are going to franchise tag doc? Basically pay a fortune but not for very long the franchise tag in the. NFL is the engagement ring of the NFL. I don't want you to leave me but it gives me about a year to you know. Hang out a little more. That's what it is. It's the engagement during the. NFL is that you don't want to leave yet. So you give her a ring and you're not quite sure yet so I'll give an expensive ring. But I'm not sure if I want to pay for the wedding in yet. And that's what the franchise tag is. It was created for. We like our quarterback. I just gotTa see more DAX Owen five this year against the best teams with a winning record. They played but further record. Kirk cousins got mad when they kept franchise tag him but kirk cousins. What nine and seven got to a playoff and couldn't win the big games right?

"Say that if the media wants to say that that's fine but you have to come out there and and take responsibility to pick sixes X.'s. There's the game I mean I don't WanNa that's that's the that's exactly what happened is what Auburn was trying to do. It's on you like and those situations is really about coaching. You have to have kids prepared for that. I don't WanNa hear that from Save Them. Jointly agree joy with the news. Well that's the news and thanks for stopping by third. I got a lot of thoughts on Jim. Harbaugh Doug Gottlieb ten minute. Top of the hour thirty minutes away. Colin Right Colin wrong so in the early early window. Ten o'clock if you live out West one o'clock if you live out east the game of the day in fact I thought it was really the game of the day The game of the weekend Ken to me was the sandwiches. Go Forty niners traveling to Baltimore to face the Ravens. I thought Baltimore would win. I just thought they would win it by more The Ravens of one one eight straight. And there's no hot take this morning. There's no contrarian point of view this was two heavyweights in the middle of the ring. Exchanging blows goes both head. Coaches are as both running games are as both offensive. LINES ARE B. Plus a both defenses are as special teams. Teams are excellent This was just great football for three and a half hours on Fox If I would love to see him match up again in the Super Ball I think Seattle and Baltimore in the Super Bowl depending on tonight my gut feeling that the Super Bowl because I think the forty niners schedule is brutal. And they'll have to go on the road if Seattle wins tonight and face the seahawks and the playoffs up in the North West. But these these were to super bowl teams. These were Incredibly Well oiled and they had all the components that super bowl. Winning teams have Excellent coaches great. Oh lines tough defenses. get a pass rush No quarterbacks are a little younger than historically teams that get to the Super Bowl but the NFL's Belan water on Baltimore and Lamar. They've they're they're trying to figure it out as the season season goes on and Jimmy G. once again made very crucial throws good enough to win this game. The only concern I have here. It's not an excuse. It's a reason I if you got t-bone drive into work. That's a reason for being late if your dog ate your homework that's an excuse. There's one thing about San Francisco. Oh and I think it really hurts in this matchup and I noticed that about four to six times this weekend watching with buddies the niners went and got in the off season. A linebacker named quon Alexander from Tampa. He is super athletic. He got hurt. He's done for the year. Kwan Alexander Against Lamar Jackson not an anecdote anecdote. It wouldn't solve everything he wouldn't be a magic elixir for Lamar Jackson. Buddy would help on about a half dozen plays and about four or five times in this game. Lamar Jackson went off. Running and that backup. LINEBACKER is a backup for a reason and Kwan Alexander's a star for a reason and I think that's the kind of player you can't can't lose if you're GONNA beat a Baltimore in a big game you gotTa have active linebackers pro bowl level guys. Who can if not chased him down get angles angles on him? And Without Quan. I thought it was noticeable for San Francisco. They're just not quite athletic. Enough to stop Lamar Jackson on that. Six to eight plays again. You're never gonNA stop all of them. Lamar is GONNA get bad about four or five times a game in a big third down could Kwan. Go in and make a tackle a little early yet. And that's the difference in the game like this but there's there's no contrary and take care. That was great football. Those are great teams. That was the best game yesterday. It was the best game maybe a month in the NFL. Well oiled machines. Well run well. Scouted both are ahead of the curve on wide receiver and quarterback play. They deserve to be in that game and we were lucky to have it and I thought it was just outstanding. NFL football that was as good as NFL. Football I got I got I got clever got fast. I got an athletic. I got good coaches. I got smart art. I got power. I got tough guys I got. I got low rainy weather kind of and I thought the rainy weather was GonNa Really Hurt San Francisco. I said it yesterday on Fox. NFL Kickoff. They kept showing pictures of rain. I'm like God this is built for Baltimore. This is an San Francisco. They came out and had they were ready to go. They were throwing blows at the center of the ring. So it was suggest Great Collin Collin Wrong in thirty minutes less than that.

"Taylor today. The dolphins and the steelers went. Let me talk about this so this morning all my Lord. Panicking Hanukkah New England super bowls over guy. Dour Brady shot really. Let's see first downs. New England had twice as many as Houston Houston third down efficiency. New England was over fifty percent. They pass for three hundred yards. They rush for three times as many yards as the Texans and dominated time of possession. No they just have a problem in New England. It's called Antonio Brown if he's on the team today they're favored the win. The Super Bowl folks football in America is changing. Kids are smart. I see it in California. High School recruiting the top one hundred players in California next year. Thirty your wide receivers ten or quarterbacks kids don't WanNa play running back because they can't get a second contract kids WanNa be wide receivers because they'll sign your early for a third third or fourth contract and New England does one thing not very well wide receiver. That's what they had to go. Get Josh Gordon and had to roll the dyson Antonio Brown Houston a lot of things wrong but they got the quarterback right and the wide receiver. Right I watched the Houston Texans on a weekly basis get outcoached out-schemed outsmarted and outplayed. But does Shawn Watson rolls out throws a flag football up in the air. You know flag football play. They diagram and One of their unbelievable wide receivers goes and catches it Minnesota Baltimore San Francisco Kansas Kansas City. You know Houston have a really good job to stay ahead of the curve and pay for wide receivers version scout wide receivers and go get wide receivers it allows you freebies. It allows you to get outcoached and outplayed and win. New England does not have an ace the pitching staff therefore forcing Julian Edelman. Who'd be a great number two to be their number one and Muhammed Su who be a great number three to be their number or to ask yourself this? If you think the season's over for New England are they good enough at head coach to win a super bowl. Yes are they good enough on on defense to win the Super Bowl. Yes are they good enough on special teams Super Bowl. Yes are they good enough for their coordinators offensive line when Israel. Yes are they good enough at running running back to win the Super Bowl. Yes are they good enough at quarterback to win the Super Bowl. Yes they are they did last year but they're not good enough at weapons therefore therefore forcing New England to have to be perfect. No penalties twelve played drives because they don't get any freebies over the top and they've done everything in well in New England for twenty years but I have been banging on them joy as my witness to. He is my witness Goulet as my witness. I've been saying this for about five years New England. They don't scout receiver. Well they'll draft it well they don't develop it very well. Julian Edelman. Who was a college quarterback? That's classic New England. We're not good at receiver receiver. We'll find somebody WHO's not a receiver make a receiver and radio. Make him great. It's not the end of anything. This organization does everything right but we have a changing football football world and it's really changing on the outside and New England doesn't do that well in my gut feeling is. They have a Hail Mary the Hail Mary are- is Antonio Brown gets if potentially cleared they give him a second chance and everything changes. Then you'd have to double Antonio elements great to so news on the remarkable three and then Phillip Door set in the Keel. Harry are terrific fours. But now everybody's gotta move up and it's just not good enough if you can out coach triple the Texans rushing better on third down more first downs better on more yes but does Shawn Watch and flings it up a couple of times we got receivers. We've figured that out and we win the game. That's the new. NFL You better not be lousy at wide receiver and New England. Now may not be lousy. But they're not very good still a very good football team. Tom Brady said afterwards. We're not to intend we're tending to. There's there's very high expectations and the expectations for our team often. Are you know a very very very high level and I understand that but at the same time I think there's really six expectations expectations with our circumstances and incorporating different elements and players injuries and again. We're just trying to do the best that we can do. I think think they're still in the super bowl picture but can no longer be a favorite unless they hail Mary to Antonio Brown develops for for the record Brady went to the owner and put up a massive fight to keep a b. for a reason he knew this would be the issue there. They're good enough everywhere else but get no freebies over the top now. Let's shift gears to Pittsburgh and Cleveland tip of the captain. Mike Tomlin coach of the year. Maybe get my vote. Great organizations overcome obstacles steelers lousy organizations create obstacles Cleveland the NFL has always been about structure and structure is boring NBA about stars. That's fun international soccer's about stars that's fun football's about structure owner. GM coach quarterback quarterback grownups High Q.. Totally focused kind of boring. The Cleveland Browns have been so chaotic for years. They're structured her so inept so mocked so poorly thought of in the league that Freddie Kitchens Get a head coaching job. Freddie Kitchens was a position coach for years and years he was known as sort of a funny likable southern. NFL position coach coach. Then because he's over his skis. He was given the big boy job in the corner table and he puffs his chest out and he just doesn't feel right and so now Baker Mayfield and I could hammer Baker all day today but I will not because I've said from the beginning. Baker is not talented enough to overcome a below low average head coach or general manager. John Dorsey who was run out of a better organization. Kansas City Freddie Kitchens did something and and this really sums it up. I've always said this about crimes. I understand some crimes. I understand crimes of passion. You walk in your wife's having an affair you take a baseball bat to a Guy Crime of passion your kids starving you walk into a seven eleven. You grab a loaf of bread and peanut butter your son's crying at home they're starving carving. It's a crime of desperation. Bank robbery is a special kind of dumb. You GotTa plan it. You GotTa call people you need help. It takes weeks no time goes. We're robbing a bank with security cameras. Not great this is Freddie Kitchens. I understand coaches in in the moment. Big Game Highly Leveraged. A lot of pressure make a play call. And you and I don't like it. I'll defend coaches on that. These games go fast. The clock is running seventy five thousand. The People it's a playoff game on the line. I make a call on third down. I go for it and I make a bad call defend you but to put a t shirt on knowing you are now mocking a violent event which embarrassed your franchise in the NFL and allow Fanta. Take a picture. Sure of it is a special kind of dumb. That's what a position coach does or a rookie player. Does that is not not what an NFL head coach does and he addressed it after the game and double down on it. Our T. shirt. I wore a jacket with it My daughter's won't mid where and I'd wear it again. I'll put a jacket own covered it up. I took a picture with van. That was as simple as that in O.. Ah Tee shirt. I mean t shirt didn't cause us to give up forty or passes and we were ready to play. That's the only thing people need to be concerned about. We were ready to play so you covered it up so you knew it wasn't a great idea when you put that T.. Shirt on you covered it up but my daughter thought it was a great idea my son thought farting in public was funny at six. I'm not GONNA do it. My son thinks or my daughter thinks I'm an adult a head coach seven-figure nfl coach and there was a violent act regardless of whose fault the NFL was embarrassed. Your owner was embarrassed. Your GM was embarrassed. The the League was embarrassed. And you mock it like Cleveland's done all year looking in the rear view Mirror on an event two weeks ago folks. Freddie Kitchens is what Cleveland ends ends up with Pittsburgh ends up with Mike. Tomlin Bill Cower and Chuck knoll great organizations have a job the opening and the very best everything rushes to sign up for it. Cleveland has a job opening and Freddie Freddie Kitchens is the best candidate great organizations Pittsburgh steelers on a third or fourth string quarterback overcome obstacles lousy organizations wearing a tee shirt to a game lousy organizations create.

"Argue the game of the year the NFL. The niners niners fifth touchdown pass to the season for Lamar Jackson. Touchdown for Lamar Jackson. Step Barbaro Sebastian. Touchdown tied fourteen fourth and one the ravens turnover on downs. The big game that lived up in every conceivable way. I'll sign up for that. The Super Bowl right now but it does bring us this question Rex Ryan. It's a true or false western. This year's Ravens would be the first team ever to average two hundred rushing yards per game. If they do Karenni I was GONNA say true regardless of the question. Because I'm so good at this game I'm saying how delightful because it's false the answer the nineteen. I'm I'm sorry it is true that's talking who's the man I'm thank you. That's great hamburglar other teams so. I assumed the answer was false. It was get the seventy eight patriots averaged one hundred ninety eight. I knew they average one hundred ninety the eight Sam Bam Cunningham Company. No you guys thoughts nine and two yard shy. I knew it well done score that one eight one. If you're keeping track at home immune well. Let's take you to the late game last night. We got the Patriots and the Texans in Houston and the members of this Texans Defense Rex. They showed up in style before the game and then they showed up in in style. Once it began to going to be picked off. They showed me everything with the pre-game outfit. They knew they were going to destroy this athletes New England Patriot offense and it shows up right that great play by Roby Texans with cash in off the turnover third quarter passer down fourteen three. They're going for it on fourth and inches has gotta catch the knew. What the heck back I think Giselle said it best? Tom Can't throw it and catch it. Exactly right and then last night the Shawn Watson could throw a and Kenny stills could catch it. How about this band? Yeah why not look at all. The weapons he had is at Hopkins is afoot. No pity stills. Now you see why they traded for them they're having fun in Houston and then just for good measure. They're running a crazy crazy flight at the finish. This is a reverse option. And it's Watson who takes it in for the easy to meet Greenie because they only had to Clemson Tigers play Clemson that option right there. In the works for a touchdown game was not as close as the final score would seem Texans. A huge win l.. Yeah.

"A team that no one is impressed with right now and that's the eagles. Eagles are knowing the division because they see starting with the dolphins. Pick US up here. Pat McAfee with arguably. The greatest specialties time arguing. I think a lot of people are saying this is the greatest greatest play in the history of the NFL. Mad Hack Athlete Shovel. Pass the Jason Sanders.

I don't know if that was necessary. But how many times times in this highlighter we're going to say. Hey Brian Fitzpatrick throws a high ball up the devante Parker. Mike is he gonNA make the play. We're going to say again. I hear what he had. No this was the story story of the game that not a single Eagle jalen mills or Ronald Darby would make a play on the football field. They may devante.

He's he's as Auto Matt Tuck Of course we'd like to finish that. Get them closer. But I know he'd be money with it. I know you're GONNA be money. I know he gonNA come through. That's what he does best ever to do it automatic Tomac fourteen minutes ago. I got this email from our gambling expert. Expert the Baltimore. Ravens are now consensus Super Bowl favorites multiple sports books including Caesar's. Do you buy Rex Ryan absolutely in in. I think what separates we thought yesterday the two best teams going at it. In my opinion the difference is you talked about a short yardage situations. The the forty niners don't have a quarterback that can run. They obviously with the Ravens. They do red zone. It makes a difference makes a difference in short yardage. I think that gives them an edgy over the niners. What about you well for me? I don't know if the niners are the best team in the NFC. I think they're a great team. They had to travel the East Coast at ten. AM game yesterday. Playing against Lamar Jackson is very very difficult. But I think the SEAHAWKS are getting hot. Saints are going to be difficult. Obviously but for me the ravens. I love what they're doing. And everybody said Lamar Jackson stay healthy. If Lamar Jackson could stay healthy the I think he's proving that he can in for me. All three phases are very very good right now Sam Cooke rarely punts. He's one of the best in the game. Justin Tucker.

I don't think it's going to come down to it but the I think the bills are gonNA lose this week. That the Raven so to me we. We'll we'll find out. Look they have to win the division and they have to have a bye. Let's talk about the Raven who well yesterday had their showdown game with the best in the NFC. On a rainy day in Baltimore and early the Ravens were down seven. Nothing and the Mark Jackson was looking for his favorite target. The big tight marc-andre Sandra's those tight ends again. They're my for offensive player of the year. All three of them in the NFL Beautiful Ball by Lamar Secondary Them. Oh play the flag. where the flag and Lamar Jackson Pat McAfee? Just explain this move. You're going to see it twice. It's ridiculous call is only one human on earth can do that right now especially into a debate. WHO's supposed to be quick? You stare down. The eyes of a shark gets shocked. Like Lamar Jackson. A borderline unfair later in the same drive on a third goal from the one Lamar again calling his own number. That was the story of the first half the defense events for San Francisco. Continue to drive down on the tailback. Lamar kept early on some big runs third a game of the year in which he's throwing one and run for one here he is running again but this doesn't end. Well well. This is a great play by the corner make no bones about it. Like Lamar is going to get a little bit of a senior. He hasn't lost a fumble all year but he just gets his full hand all the football and is able to rip it out from the Mark Jackson's grasp and it's really a big turnover. This defense count ability though that was was on me. Yeah Yeah I love that like hey real quick. That was on me. Kick a field goal. So we're tired at seventeen six and a half minutes ago when the Game San Francisco on a fourth and one and what do you think of the play. I hate the play. I hate it fourth down your territory. Run the football get underneath center and run the football. What you've done well all day? They didn't and so they give it back with six twenty eight when they would never get the ball back with more on a fourth them but another example of why the Marceau smart like that drift on that quarterback sneak in and really this arming of dumped off. The Hayden was massive. Play on first and fifteen a big play in a couple of plays later on a third one at the thirty. The niners are out of timeouts so a first I down is going to change the complexion of the game. They do it so it's a first down there that can down to three seconds. Justin Tucker from forty nine yards pat since he walked on the field mark. Ingram said it ought Tomaso talk. Justin suckers appears ball-striker. I've ever seen absolute stunt good operation. Morgan Cox Sam Cooke Justin Tucker. He gives of the game interview. It'd be to.

NFL analyst Mark slayer and James Harrison Marcel saw starwood. You are Lamar Jackson's Ravens a bad match up for the undefeated patriots no not at all they gonNA fall right into Bella checks hands right into his Game Plan every single defense I've been on including the number one ranked defense coach will always come in front of us as a defensive coordinator say I challenge that team gene to March down the field on US consistently think about what that means every single coach out there wants you to say try and go out there and go four yards in the cloud of dust and choke on your own cloud of dust because we don't want to allow is the art of Big Plays Chuck yardages say so belichick is GonNa Watch team come out there and try to be methodical in their running game against the defense that only gives up four point one yards per play so you're going to go out there and say we're GonNa just methodically move football all the way down the field with a young quarterback who is tremendous tremendous but when you talk about young quarterback I bel- check is undefeated against him twenty one zero against first and second year quarterbacks more importantly the wherewithal the understandings of the game the patients penalties turnovers all come into play when you try to Dodig -ly beat a team by just running the football consistently it won't work against the Patriots and it won't work because Belichick's says bring that on is it a bad match up yeah hell yeah it's bad matchup it's a terrible match up because it's one of one they're the only team in the league that runs the the style of offense and what they do you like you tell me how you're supposed to prepare in a league where we have limited contact legislative contact out of the game the football and in practice you all the sudden are going to practice walk throughs and practice one nine on several where maybe you're in pads for six or seven plays against that what I call a heavy spread offense and their tight ends or beastly they're running backs or beasley they are one of the toughest teams washed to defend in the running game they're ridiculous and what they do split the game split the ball in half split the field in half right you've got going to pick a side right you're gonNa have essentially six guys on one side and five guys on the other there's eleven there's eleven defenders right they ended up getting a tight end from the backside receiver from the backside and what makes them unique is the tailback becomes a blocker so would they end up doing is getting all these guys on one side where you have six and now all sitting there on this side and it's a it's a seven on five matchup it's a six on five matchup because a quarterback is carrying the ball they are the most unique the football team now I'm not saying they're going to beat the Patriots but are they a bad match up hell yeah they're a bad batch they're bad metric for anybody because nobody else runs it the or one of one league that runs this style of offense and I don't know how you prepare in one week to defend that J I totally I totally agree with them it is a bad match up but I still don't see them winning you know when we had to prepare for quarterbacks like that we would actually have twelve is on offense and you put a guy that would actually if he was going to run this guy would actually run the actual run and if he was going to pass then the quarterback would actually pass it so you didn't have a guy in near on one play where you knew all right it's GONNA be run or it's going to be a pass so the preparation for hi that can actually run the ball like running back and still pass the ball effectively as he can do it's bad matchup no way any nobody's willing to step out on this limb with me that and I really don't think as much of a limb ravens at home with this running game and what I just saw Cleveland if Nick Chubb holds onto the one in Oh against first and second year quarterback what are we talking about if you keep betting against them at some point in time you're going to be right because everything fails one point but you're gonNA lose a lot of money to your bookie betting against him before you get that one that's right your argument is making the point that we're saying in the defense assume think about a long consistent drives nick job was averaging six yards a carry so let's get the ball on the twenty eight yard was at thirteen thirteen nine seven minutes ride on her team in thirteen and tips you know what's going to happen a penalty here of turnover there negative interest here's what here's what happens and you can take that six point whatever yards per carry and you can you can scrap all that because bellichik will will basically say going into and James has been there basically say hey they're not going to beat US Cleveland running the ball right we've got to take away Odell Beckham junior get five he gets five landry gets five catches and they both get about fifty yards or whatever it is they're like that's not that's what we'll beat us big junkyards in that passing game we'll beat us will let against the Patriots offense is not great in my opinion it's not great so I don't see this as a high scoring game regardless of what happens and then on the other side I'm telling you mccorvey and Stefan Gilmore make that defense go they shut down wide receivers they make that defense go the rest of the doc in the rest of the Jamie Collins Malloy D- good players but they can be one on particular by this team with this quarterback and marking and just their commitment and were they've had a week off Havana do that he's going to make them beat him the way that they don't want to they run a ball and they run the ball effectively Dick Lebeau great defense corner asking abroad they beat us but they're not going to beat us running the ball doing what they do effectively they're going to have to beat us with what they don't do Great Greg Roman Dolphins a quarter a day for Baltimore to Colin Cabinet to Foxborough and beat Bill Belichick and the Patriots off a bye week as well I think Lamar Jackson's better than Colin Kaepernick and I know at one point Colin Kaepernick I I was all but just as they honor and I think as a more consistent player Lamar Jackson is better I think Baltimore's defense is certainly good enough to limited the Patriots offense I just think it's come if they were coming off a bye I would be less sure about my conviction here but really do believe they're going to get the Patriots this weekend you can't as Marx it it's tough to prepare for this office that kind of physicality people just don't play this what so talking to John Harbaugh this I I did a Baltimore game a week ago and so they call a Baltimore they call it Revolution Baltimore and John it was really interesting because John says to me he goes listen there hasn't been a new passing concept misleading twenty years is that mine has been mind hasn't happened he goes we are creating a running game that nobody seemed before and we've got concept stacked upon concepts that we like were Releasing them week by week so absolutely it's incredibly difficult to prepare for there's the other side of the ball as well you look at what Wink Martin Dell's doing on the defensive side of the ball they don't rush the passer very effectively they've had some injuries what they end up doing is anytime there's a critical situation this is their philosophical approach and and I talked to Earl Thomas about it we're GONNA get zero and we're bringing the house and listen can you Tom Brady before he

"I think that what we want to talk about our vise lows the NFL season so far and highs at this point are the Sansko forty niners it's the New England patriots to undefeated teams and then we want to get into Adam gays who want to get into Freddie Kitchens in WanNa get into the Chicago bears those I probably don't need to say are the lows of the nfl let's start with the great teams the teams that are that are undefeated mic Bosa and San Francisco Forty niners so this was so we talked about this last week where essentially both of the undefeated teams have been dogged by this Weirdo they haven't played anybody and eventually as maze I talked about last week eventually you know this is just the NFL they're beating up on these bad teams because there's just too many bad NFL team that's sort of the way things are going right now there's like five good teams that are quote unquote nice schedule winds and then there's twenty-seven teams who are who everyone considers inferior one AA competition Ravin said that the forty niners host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday they win fifty one to thirteen the panthers where the fifth ranked offense in the NFL all fifteen th ranked defense Nick Bosa three sacks three tackles for loss one pass break up and one interception return for forty six yards the forty niners I I I don't feel the need to say there will jit because we already knew their religion you've written about this this was the type of win that I August isn't very analytical this shuts people up oh yeah I mean this is this is what they call a statement when I think the most points they've scored since ninety three or something like that I saw that today Yup yeah type of win where if there was college they would get like twenty more first place votes this week exactly kind of win they wouldn't jump over the Patriots but it'd be getting close yeah I mean this what stood out to you when you just looked at I mean it was as complete performance you can get it turning that stood out that maybe I mentioned already I mean yeah obviously the defense I think has been the foundation that they've been operating on this year they've -pletely remade that front seven I should say the front the Front Line Nick Bosa you know changes everything default has been good deforest buckner is just playing out in elite level still Eric Armstead has been playing really really well as you know two and then I actually saw Solomon Thomas make a really good play today too I mean they've got guys they've got it reminds me a little bit of the rams of old in one sense that they spent several years of like accumulating talent and it's finding all starting to kind of click together her and their defense is looks like a juggernaut and then on the other side of the ball run game is just so dominant You know we saw we saw what they could do today. Seven Coleman really really good they've got like woman baby yeah they've got like four backs that could that could be their starter yeah they're just really really good so they they control the clock they it's such an old school method in you know it's it's funny because in the in the stage when passing is so much more efficient they're kind of breaking that rule that passing more efficient because when you can run with that level of efficiency in that level of explosiveness I mean it just you don't Oh you don't actually really need to pass that much because they've just been doing it sufficiently my favorite maybe event of twenty nineteen so far is field yates tweeted out most pass attempts prior to first career interception history number one is Dak Prescott number three was Kyle Allen after the game yeah Richard Sherman Seen this yet Richard Sherman quote tweeted that tweet which is I'm so happy to have Richard Sherman back in our lives I talked with a couple of weeks ago but just like the thing where he may be made up that thing with Baker Mayfield I'm fine with it leveraged do whatever he wants he's back in the spotlight he's GonNa Talk unquote tweet field Yates tweets about say element Mayo hundred percent on the rich German experience back to hit a piano yeah I know this is a pro Richard Sherman podcast now I think it's really interesting what happens now in the NFC obviously the Green Bay packers won tonight there are no drew breeze comes back with the saints and they look like they didn't miss a beat obviously you know teddy bridgewater is a very good quarterback while he was aperture breezes he's wearing your mind is the pecking order in the NFC and are the niners significantly above those other two teams man that's such a good question I really like The saints still I think the fact that they were able to do what they did go five zero at bridgewater and just Kinda keep going you know keep them momentum going forward I think they are still one of the favorites I would say you know it San Francisco New Orleans one and the packers just slightly below that but with the way that Aaron Rodgers has been playing last couple of weeks there certainly scary I think their defense has taken a little bit of a step back so there may be not quite as balanced as we thought they were but yeah I mean I think those are clear top three teams there's no question about that and then you could you know make arguments for the vikings or whoever but yeah I think those are like the like the cream of the crop for share in then there's a bunch of other teams speaking of the cream of the Crop New England patriots okay so the stats from the NFL the browns I can barely get throughout the browns had turnovers on three consecutive offensive plays against the Patriots that is the first time any team has done so since week one twenty twelve only the seventh time it's been done since two thousand this is not good if you're the browns we're GonNa get to the browns and are very robust stocks downs section a little bit but this patriots team unfortunately this is not kind of the schedule will win that we thought it was going to be you know the niners get there's the browns are not as good as the panthers the browns have been kind of a disaster but this was just another performance Devin mccourty looks like maybe defensive player of the year candidate the defense he just unbelievable in Baker Mayfield after the game said that the Patriots didn't do anything confuse them they were just playing really well yeah and you you kinda wonder like isn't that the worst case scenario for a team is the they're not doing anything new there just being the crap out of you I mean it was amazing when you think about this patriots defense what comes to mind yeah I think a couple of things going to mind number one discipline that's kind of a hallmark of the belichick teams is just being really disciplined like you know obviously Cliche do your job or whatever that's the first thing versatility you know they're able to play it's
Did Raven choke OBJ?
"That are you Cleveland played Baltimore on Sunday and to be an NFL dot com. the Cleveland coach pretty kitchens he was fuming about what he saw in the game apparently Marlon Humphrey he thought Marlon Humphrey was choking Odell Beckham junior and so he said I'm going to talk to the league about this this is. rounds at the head coach for the kitchen right so on Tuesday today the ravens website posted a story titled Marlon Humphrey didn't choke Odell Beckham junior which included a video of it and then Freddie kitchens in this press conference was asked about the story which made him even more mad and I thought ray that's probably. Marc vandermeer DO if we wrote a story that made the opposing coach really angry any any other questions about it. I think he already played that could have been even the owner saying I want their store the what ifs well the ravens website they they push the when and I mean they don't they don't just push the envelope they like rip it open so they've they've done some stuff in the past that I don't think a lot of teams do yeah liberties I think with ray rice steaks it was the head of their PR department the P. R. director after the ray rice step wrote an entire editorial about. ray rice and what a great guy he was and I've worked with him any basically vouch for him and I thought you you know you might wanna wait until all the facts are out there because a there's a video and be this is gonna be a really bad look on you if if you turn the other way which it did but you know he just he just put himself for the pier to form do that is it is a little strange it wasn't a writer but as far as team well that was the ravens of the most out there of all of them but the title marlin I mean I'm the owner of the cliques they got from that.
Are Freddie Kitchens and Baker Mayfield Holding Back the Cleveland Browns?
"GonNa go right to the fourth quarter quarter with the browns so they're down for points and Baker Mayfield and the browns run a draw play on fourth and nine and not surprisingly they came up short short then late in the fourth Cleveland at another opportunity with the first and goal from the four yard line the browns called four straight past plays with the last one resulting in an interception from Baker. That is the game for the rams after the game coach Freddie Kitchen said he regretted the play calling late in the game but Baker said it was more than that take a listen. If you're looking blame somebody blame me. Don't blame me of our players. Don't blame any of our other coaches. Just blame me because I can take it all right. So you know just blindly go go rach article and say I must have game up. Go article and say smile faulted. Things not looking like it did last year because it is. I know what you guys are. GonNa try and do is talk about the playcalling they call him but I said executions the most important thing you know whatever whenever we have called we gotta do our job all right Shannon how much blame that does Freddie Kitchens deserve here. There's a lot of the blame because give the office coordinated the coach and he's the play caller. I Guess Bakersfield Dangerous yesterday. Did you wake feeling dangerous. Gear Alexa dangerous lately. He needs to feel the need to wake up feeling danger. Tennessee woke up feeling real dangerous and that they did. Did you know what skipped look. Freddie is learning that that's to wear two hats in the NFL gets a really hard job. That's why a lot of a lot of guys. Just give that up they either just keep the headset on so they can hear everything or they call you like Andy. Reid is very unique cow Shanahan and guys like that a very unique skipped dream to be able to call the plays and be a head cold but Freddie the the thing that's hurting frady is expectations afraid of the head coach last year if they didn't have these expectations but because of the way they played the close out the season yeah and now they add dale they will add alleviate Vernon they they get they get agreement. We've the draft you like who the brow and you see the subtractions in Pittsburgh. Maybe is no longer there. ABC's no longer there yeah yeah and then what week two bengals out so now that really ratcheted up taste so now everybody expecting the browns to be really really good look doc. That's why I say each year in of itself because last year has no bearing on this year and I think the browns players and and fans are starting to realize that Freddie is starting to realize the expectation that comes along with expectations. I'm the head coach because he didn't have a whole lot of experience calling rolling blades. He's never been a head coach so now he's the head coach which means he's the CEO of the operation but by the same token. He's got a call all the plays now. I don't know what the hell call now. If I didn't no but elsewhere Freddie Buffalo Wild Wings Buffalo Wild Wings coat the fourth and now you can't what the hell is that draw draw play on Yahoo. They were GONNA try to fool Agassi's pass. It got eight yards do remedy it was he ended up seven yards short. I was wondering if I was missing something watching. I'm like wait. Am I getting the goal. You got shows. You got nick. You don't give you one. Kerry now was a live. Let's put back and let's run. It is so you go so you got nick who you save or. I'M GONNA keep everybody happy. I'M GONNA get down. Here's Kevin Jarvis if Catcher Chila. It'll be thirty okay. You give make sure one crack please. okay okay scared. We're told you you keep trying to keep everybody happy to win. Games in everybody's going to be saying 'cause everybody because everybody's GonNa be safe because they nobody's gonna be getting their catches and you'll be losing games and you're going to be in a lose lose situation wages and you're going to be a part of their now that Jimmy and de Havilland. They look like hold on Okay John Dorsey now. We gave you everything everything that you want it. You got a quarterback overall. You got all these weapons. Jarvis Landry got a you got Joel hurt him but here's the things when you you made that trade y'all trash because you got the ninety nine deflategate boy human too. We're talking about the guy who had zero Saxon three the playoff games and it has zero sacks against the cowboys and the Guy who took the Cleveland browns cannot protect Baker Mayfield. They haven't for free games and the Rams took full advantage of that last night. What did I say Friday. Baker Mayfield is about to be in the wrong place at the wrong time against Wade Phillips defense offense that Cap Tom Brady and check for almost the entire super bowl. Am I right about you. Skip in another thing before I let you go. They traded their bust of Islam lobby. Get Out I'll be at the end of the day. You can have all the shiny pieces. You won't skill all these cashier that look nice. You better have a guard or to guard the money now. The money right now is six Baker Mayfield. You got a bunch of predate cashiers. You Got Jarvis and he got dale. You've got all that stuff. I did pillows but nobody protecting the money in his sketches for fifty six yards really the impact the game. Do you remember any of Nope. NOPE nope nope no so given that that was Wade Phillips Defense and right now. I think that defense is even a little better than then. Bill checks defense. That's how good it is because it has more star power to it because to leave did a number on Odell last night. I don't care what you say. You know. They'll get loose down on the field one time he had a nineteen yard catch. It didn't do much okay now back to Freddie Kitchens. I'm not sure he's going to last a whole year. I'm just not sure because bag years kept finding coach in the middle of the how I think it's it's just getting a little darker and darker in Cleveland because remember they have to go go to Baltimore next Sunday Baltimore better than everybody thought in there I think five point underdog there are five and a half actually five and a half point underdog so that the game you better believe believe it or the forty niners three and Oh yes they beffa movie bouquet. The next game is a Monday night game in Santa Clara against against the forty nine. It's Elizabeth game and then the seahawks visit. Seok student looked great yesterday but they did go to Pittsburgh while Rothlisberger played the first half right. They're capable of beating the browns right now because the browns aren't very good right now what if they lose those games and fall to one in six what's Jimmy Haslem going to do with the expectations -tations through the roof of them. He already got one coach. That's still on the pay. Roll can still play a huge. I I know you have another guy on the payroll. Just bring somebody else hears Freddie's problem after the game. He's adopted this new. Oh poor pitiful pitiful me philosophy where he just says you. I'll take it all you know. Get the lay it on me. Don't blame the players blame. Oh Freddie doesn't really look like a football coach. Does he looks more like an offensive line coach so he he doesn't look like the head coach doesn't look like he's in charge and after the Games he's kind of admitting yes screwed that one up and I screwed that go ahead just say well. If you invite the media to run through that door trust me they're going to run through it and trample on you because he is now the easiest target in the national football league. You WANNA blame Baker. Can you not really do you want to blame Odell. No not really how Jarvis no hell out him yes. Yes you know who I want to be right now. I build Danny Jones. That'd be real petty. Okay believe anything you say I'm just saying I can't believe that guy number one he could do that. I don't think he's built. He's built wake ain't skill but you know what I think. Cleveland's defense is really good remember that they had four subs playing in the defensive backfield last night. All four starters were out in hung in and did that I mean I guess why they did it to me. Jared Goff's overrated scale. He's overweight did everything he could. CLEVELAND WON'T DARWIN THIS GAME. How many times do you go on the road and turn it over three times and win the football game you tell me it was three to one and turnovers with l. A. Three to Braley won the Dow many times. Do you get away with them. That's the recipe you want. The best recipe the loser role game yeah. Turn it over thank you. They did that and they still won. One hundred ten million guaranteed right Jared Goff my money yup lots of money so back to quarterback. I love Baker Mayfield old. I'm sorry I got to tell the truth is having a hard time. He's starting to lose a little bit of nerve because he Bolton Fast Komo News. I gotta get out of here. I gotTA get out here. He needed to stand in especially on the goal line and just make one of those rows without looking over his shoulder. It's the Ford downplay. He bolts pockets so fast. I know the play hard off the right. I think yeah I think that's probably a dollar and that was that was ended up being a clay that end up being getting away with the thing is is that sometimes these quarterbacks they look in the bubble instead of stepping up. They look into get outside up that skill once you get outside. Guess what you're doing you telling the defense. Basically I got from the Hash to the side attitude rolling to the every once in a while. We'll talk about Lamar Jackson. You'll get away with a bail out with Obama did you. Did you know you don't make that. You'll go broke doing that. I would agree but Baker. Hey sometimes you gotta you gotTa Take

"He got into power shrug with cloudy that he lost so the texans a ah my friend colin cowherd made the point and he's right but i don't think it's the whole story which is the texans are of course better this year than otherwise because this year those draft picks they would not use this year because their future draft picks but the price they paid was enormous and yet puts pressure on everyone in the organization. I think in the short-term chris it makes to show him watson better. Laremy tunsil will make the entire offensive line better but the cost was so enormous that i think to show him watson some will benefit from it in two thousand nine hundred and pay the price for it. Maybe in twenty twenty two and twenty twenty three when the team is less talented around you're hoping is that the shawn watson will be able to to mitigate those deficiencies that you're gonna have in other areas of your team because you don't have that draft capital now. Give it up two first round draft picks and a second round draft pick. That's a steep price to pay but what when you look at what happened in your division with the indianapolis colts in health especially early on with andrew luck which led to his early retirement you recognize okay. It's important to make sure that we protect check our franchise quarterback. You can't have the shawn watson and taking a bus to a road game because he can't fly with the team due to a partially collapsed lung. I mean getting sexy two times. That's not sustainable so i think that bill o'brien made the right decision in terms of addressing an area of need you just don't like the price that he paid but that's the problem when you had that inherent conflict between wean the general manager's responsibilities and coaches responsibilities head coach is trying to win for today. The general manager's responsibility is make sure that to have sustainability and you can win tomorrow but because bill o'brien is on the hot seat he's going to mortgage the future of the franchise with the draft picks in order. Give himself the the best opportunity to have success but the fact that they did address that area of need with this move and some of the moves that they made in the off season. You have to feel good about the texans especially with andrew luck retiring in the a._f._c. south. I mean they clearly have the best quarterback within a division. If you had the best quarterback that's going to be. It's going to lend itself to you having a really good chance to win. Individual the best quarterback in the division and they have the best wide receiver in the division. Some people think the best wide receiver and all of football but i don't. I don't think the texans got dramatically better than they were last season. They got better in one spot left tackle. They got worse on the defensive side of the ball. You get worse when you lose your clown. Yes people can say ah you didn't live up to the hype of number one overall pick. They got worse. They they lost iran matthew. I understand tyrod matthew. Some people say he's not the all pro that he once was early in his career with arizona. Ever since he blew out his knee he's still a valuable good defensive player and for the texans this season i. This is my issue with any team it. Who's my issue with the giants even if i don't agree with your philosophy..

"I. I believe that they're better set for run then. They were two years ago when they upset new england with the great super bowl win and the home field advantage part is so critical and this is where since you're you're not here. You can't snaps the schedule away from me. I can go through it just quickly. They have to lucky breaks on their schedule c. One is shared by the entire division. Which which is the n._f._c. This year plays the a._f._c. so you've got the bills the dolphins and the jets on your schedule but the other part of their schedule that i think bodes bodes really well for a team to be hot going into the playoffs is their final month of football is miami giants washington dallas giants again and so the side when that home game against dallas in that final live games you should be playing three games against rookie quarterback's one game against the dolphins were restarting rose ner fitzpatrick and then a home game against the cowboys even if they don't start great even if they're six and five they could real five straight me. One of the hottest teams going into to the playoffs with those five games to end the year. I think that works incredibly in their favor. If you're a team that thinks we're just trying to make the playoffs. You want the soft part of your schedule the early so you can get off to a good start of the season. If you're a team that's trying to win a championship having those games late so you can go into the playoffs hot. I think is a huge edge. The scheduled agile to me to my i fell very favorably for them this year and if dallas is not worth amari cooper and zeke is slow going in the first couple of games then they could really take control all the n._f._c. see. Yes someone must fed that scheduled thing to you because typically n._f._l. Players we don't look at that schedule. We do look at the opposition opposition but nick you make a great point. As far as who were their opposition how many teams they have rebounded. They're going to get the meat of their schedule early and if they can get off to a great start you're talking about having one of those special special type years in home field advantage in the n._f._c. It becomes important because nick you've been talking about. The n._f._c. is stacked and philadelphia if they can get through those first two months of the season they are set up because of the schedule washington is rebuilding the giants sir doing giant type of things that a._f._c..

"I didn't hear jarvis all of a sudden whining about it because jarvis and odell also already gotten paid so. I don't think this is going going to be a problem. Is there an understanding though that now that odell zero dell's your number one receiver and jarvis isn't does does the variants of pecking order sort of trickled down to the players and that accepted. We'll definitely does change but the fact that odell jarvis do have a prior relationship and they played together in college. You would think that you'd be able to smooth that over because the reality is when defenses go into game plan for the cleveland browns and a weekend week out basis odell beckham joined going to be the guy that you have to stop. He's the one that's going. Addictive front and coverage and jarvis landry will fall to your number two or number three option within an offense. All i'm saying is when you have those guys taken away from the opposing defense. Are they going to be satisfied even if the team does win. Are they going to be satisfied with not necessarily getting the numbers that they're accustomed to and that would if they're winning and either anyway. He's guys complained. That would surprise me. Now your point that when you wouldn't surprise you it would if they're winning listen. I i know dell's and i don't think think i'm biased on this but maybe i am. I believe that odell biggest issue has been a lack of winning now as far as his attitude. If you were his sideline headline antics there weren't a lot of clips of the giants up thirty five fourteen but odell has two catches for seven yards and he's throwing a fit. It's win. Its it's third and six. He was open. He doesn't get the ball they ended up punting and then he threw a fit on the sideline. I would be surprised if the browns are eight and four and the storyline is odell beckham junior or jarvis landry are upset because they're not being featured more and as far as the decided hierarchy odell was the number one receiver in college odell went higher in the draft and jarvis so dell's had a better career than jarvis jarvis understands. He is a really really good receiver. We're in this league. He's not odell beckham junior. Here's the one thing i say i mean you can't make it a given. That odell is going to be a good soldier for freddie kitchens in the cleveland browns when he's he's proven that he hasn't when he was with the new york giants i mean odell was working on his third head coach by the time they decided that the disruptions that brought to the table weren't worth the production that they were getting on the field so i mean we still have to take a wait and see approach. As far as that goes now he is probably playing with a more talented quarterback at this stage of his career and baker mayfield and he was with the new york giants. What's an ally manning but as far as cleveland browns experiment is concern. I mean there has to be some winning to support all of the things that freddie kitchen has been preaching all season long in terms. I'm trying to turn the page with the culture of the team trying to get to a stage where they're consistently competitive so i. I think that this is one of those situations. That's volatile. It can go either way. I think of this team gets off to a fast start. It will probably lend itself to these guys being able to managed a little better by the coaching staff and the hierarchy in the organization. I think that's why i've i've been a lot of people have been hesitant to go ahead and put them in the playoffs already just because i'd love to see what they do. We know what they can do on paper. I'd love to see let them win. A couple of games mixed step. Is this team being able to compete for the playoffs. They came to about as close as you can. Get being a five hundred team without being a five hundred team last year so i think now this cleveland browns teams should that'd be focused on trying to win division or get a wild card and get into the postseason..
Ready Freddie: Kitchens hired by Browns after offensive run
"Of it. He's not saying, I don't like, Freddie kitchens. I'm not. I'm just saying I don't think he's ready to be a head coach. Because I don't think the resume has kind of allowed me to believe that he'd be ready to be the head coach at this point. That's the issue that I have here. Claire, yes. Yeah. And I mean, that's a legitimate point. But sometimes you just have to learn on the fly, man. And I think for them flying under the radar and look at look within their division. You've got the Pittsburgh Steelers. I mean, they're all over the place. You know what I'm saying? They're trying to work out a contract with been will they trade Antonio Brown. They got a lot of stuff going on. They need to get rid of the defensive coordinator. You look at Baltimore. They're transitioning in terms of their quarterback and their quarterback. What does he do seventy percent of the time? He runs the football will be able to last. So this is a division to my whole point is this is a division and Cincinnati stinks. This is a division that's up in the air. And if you're talking about a team trending upward a team that wants to keep the same momentum going into the off season right into the regular season to the preseason. Well, you don't wanna have a lot of moving parts. You don't wanna hear a different voice a lot of times. And I like the fact that, you know, the players respect him, and they say he hold you accountable, and it's just a different energy up in here. And he. Brings that. And maybe this guy he's going to work extra hard because he doesn't have the big name. He doesn't have the accolades, and he said he says, I'm you know, I don't have the big name. I had to do it the old fashioned way. And that's one of the reasons why he's so motivated, so I like the movement. Freddie kitchens is my guy. He is your guy you love the warriors. You'll have this and you'll love Freddie kitchens as an NFL head coach safety blades. Rodney Harrison Dan Schwartzman. NBC sports radio. Are you a little conflicted on this one? Looking Vic Fangio has been around the NFL for thirty two years is insistent coach defensive-minded a great job. Look, I give him more credit than I give Matt Nagy Nagy by the way for the bears because I never thought the bears Nike Nagy, right? I. Nagy right. No, listen. Listen, listen to me like Eggy Nagy Nagy, man. Right. That's he corrected. Chris Collins worth and all the guys up a it's like Eggy Nagy, Matt Nagy. Thank you producer. Thank you. Professor. So Matt Nagy gets all the credit and to me it should be Vic Fangio because his defense was a calling card for the for the Chicago now. Oh, come on. Do he's sitting get all the credit and all, but it does not get all the credit. He gets a bunch of credit for turning Mitchell Trubisky around think about and I'm from Chicago. And I get the text messages. I get the phone calls. They thought Mitchell Trubisky was going to be an absolute bused everybody in Chicago was nervous guys come in. You saw the potential Mitchell Trubisky saw the improvement. You saw the offense. Make a lot of plays and just become a different level of offense that they've had in the past. Yes, I mean like and this is no disrespect to Vic Fangio. But then could you call a couple of coverages and defenses with all that talent have on the defensive side of the ball. You got Khalil Mack. You gotta Keam Hicks having his best season. As a pro. You got two young stud. Danny's treve. You got roquan Smith. You got to all pros in the secondary prince amukamara he's playing well Adrian ammos like I should be the defense coordinator of the Chicago Bears. Trust me. It'd be freaking good to all right. But wait a minute. Wait a minute Mr. Chicago here, and you can tell your friends give them a call, text and whatever Mitchell Trubisky every
Three NFL Teams Hire Head Coaches
"Gays who'd been the dolphins head coach the last three years made the playoffs once and gets fired after back to back losing seasons. The Browns also have a coach they promote Freddie kitchens to the head job. He became the Browns offensive coordinator this year after the firings of Hugh Jackson and Todd Haley, and candidly, they were just great after he took over the offense and the Broncos higher Vic Fangio the only coaching higher. So far this cycle with a defensive background nineteen years as an NFL defensive coordinator, the last four very highly regarded in Chicago putting together that defense, and of course, Adam Schefter is still working the phone here because we have all their moves other dominoes that are still

Browns fire coach Hue Jackson ahead of trade deadline
"General manager with their old. Hey, coach, hue Jackson. It was destined to fail. And it did finally on Monday when the Browns released Hugh Jackson with time left on his contract this season and next season. So the Browns will be paying him through two thousand nineteen but it will give John Dorsey and Alonzo Highsmith and Elliott Wolff in the Browns for an office the chance to go hire their own head coach, they are I in the pool this year. They get the start looking for an interviewing coaching candidates right now, if they want to go talk to Lincoln Riley at Oklahoma taking go do that. If they want to go talk to any other college coach, they can go do that. They don't have to hide behind anything right now. The Browns are the first out for a coaching search. And then of course, they make the change in offense coordinator firing Todd Haley and bringing in Freddie kitchens who doesn't have extensive experience running an NFL offense. So it'll be interesting to see how kitchens calls play. Days starting Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. And so the Cleveland Browns the first team to overhaul their coaching staff, but the real changes came Tuesday with a flurry of moves that made this one of the busiest trade deadline days in NFL history. Last year was very busy. Because at the last moment in the twenty four hours leading up to the deadline. We saw Jimmy Garoppolo traded from New England to San Francisco j Gye traded from Miami to Philadelphia Dwayne Brown from Houston to Seattle. Marcel Darius from buffalo to Jacksonville and Kelvin Benjamin going from Carolina to buffalo end the almost trade of AJ McCarron from Cincinnati to Cleveland, the got foiled when the Browns could not get the deal done in time by the four o'clock deadline by the four o'clock deadline this year. There was no such thing. Holding back a flurry of moves. We saw de. Ver- trade Pro Bowl wide receiver. Damaris Thomas and a seventh round pick to the Houston. Texans for a fourth and seventh round pick. As will the interesting part of that trade is that Thomas is first game with the Texans will come Sunday in Denver against the Broncos team. That just traded him. Thomas was the longest tenure Bronco and get the Broncos say goodbye to him because really they weren't going to keep his fourteen million dollars salary around next season in my mind. The most surprising move right before the deadline. Came win Detroit traded golden Tate to Philadelphia for a third round pick. So many teams had made so many inquiries to the lions about golden Tate. But they had resisted all overtures for him. But finally, they broke down and dealt Tate to the eagles who for the second straight year made a trade right at the deadline last year Gye this year Tate, as they look to try to keep up with the rest of the NFC east another team in the NFC making.
