"About confident free agents Biz while. Tab Maroon is once again an unrestricted free agent after winning back to back cups and I think we should send it over to him for his unique perspective on winning cup. Let's do it tied Maroon folks. Joy. now come on now is just the third guy of the expansion era to go back to back Stanley Cup champions with two different teams. He wanted of course last year at Saint. Louis. And he wanted again on Monday with the Tampa. Bay Lightning. Any certainly appears to be having one hell of a time celebrating down in Tampa congratulations on Stanley Cup number two, and thanks for joining us on spitting chocolates. Patty Maroon. Extra I appreciate it. Thanks Boys Arrived what an intro it's been a crazy couple few days as you can tell through my voice but. I still can't believe it. I it. It's nice to see you shared on first off. I thought there was no chance. You weren't to keep that going for the pod going to take it off, take it off of start. It off right but. You're speaking to your body. I heard you were having a sumo wrestling way offs with Ovechkin in the fucking. What's happened there? Who who had their? known everyone had me and and. I mean it was it was honestly what tonight that was to like. Doing way off with Ob and you know said there. Now of other boys I, mean it was not man like the whole the whole time. So it's good to hang out with those guys and actually have a couple of drinks get their personalities. Just who would ever thought I mean yourself. Acoustic. Saint Louis and to bring a cop to your hometown, and then you're you're not resigned which I trip them the other day I said, what we signed this guy fucking signed for nine hundred Tampa right like Jesus Christ but I digress. But then you go over to Tampa you've new John Cooper fifteen years ago whenever it was like just take me through your thought process on everything that's happened. If you really not even had the time to sit back and think about how special this has been. I mean I've had time but as you guys know the last. Few Days I've been. Pardons grank it. I've been bamboo go myself a couple days. So no I mean I had time. I mean when Kook got the call and he? When he called me, I got the call from it was you know he was like, Hey, what are you thinking about coming to Tampa let me talk to joy on Jimmy. Call Conversation with some other teams in the work but until then I wanted to go to a team that I wanted to win on and. And I thought Tampa. What they went through last year was I thought I can help their locker room I'm not going to help them on the scoresheet every single night but I know I can help them stick out from their teammates they can play a little bigger you know like Kuch can play bigger Tyler Johnson Stammer, Polat they can all play bigger and feel comfortable they have no No someone that can protect them that knew that a group That one at all and and I know I had history with winning Kooks. So was just icing on the cake. So I think he needed is good luck charm to win that cup for. You're too modest about the scoresheet thing because you're picking off sauce in the final game a mid air in the neutral zone. How good that one feel That felt good. How? Those are some Sekhmet Sarah, you look like, Kucherov on every single fucking bad pass that goes around him. He's like he's like the video game. If you just put it in his vicinity, he's going to find a way to get it on a stick in order to make a play. That guy is ridiculous. Kucherov in when he's in warm ups. Going like sixty percent and then that's a game. percent. Sean areas give me a shout out to about my stick. So. I can't complain about that. Now I mean fuck I don't know I black out there they go ahead my hands up in their bitching at the bench is you're telling me to get off and I was. Still made the places like shut up I know how long should be here. This long enough best partners I thought Volkov. It his first game and I was going nuts. Now's like who scored that I go to the pilots Coleman I was like Oh shit maybe I should have changed. Unreal that we've talked to other guys about the day to day aspect of the bubble and obviously you guys one in a great view guys. But how challenging did a gift? Not necessarily you but just the daily day to day grind of every day the same thing over and over again. I'm in it was a grind for sure. Are I think the problem is like? I'm so used to. An old but I'm used to leave an anthony every single year obviously the year before stayed in St Louis but I always used to being away from family. And I know some guys were asking me questions you know what it's like and it's GonNa hit home for you when you're two weeks and then a month and in a bubble that. You're a month and a half man and your family you can't see your kids and. And then when you get into. Yourself closer to the Stanley. Cup or the conference finals here trying to get your family Americans can't come in, but the Canadians can. Kinda sucks, and but we came together as a group during that whole time Toronto. We had Polka Ball. We had We had tennis courts. We had a pool outdoor We had like five restaurants. We had the beam oldfield where you can go over and play Spike Ball. Soccer football play catch. You know there's kind of a bar outside there's a restaurant open there at five o'clock. So we had we had thanks to do and trial. Then when you got the advertisement was kind of. The we call it the prison yard, which it wasn't, but it was a cement concrete where you can tell why guys in Edmonton were struggling probably more than the guys who? got the free ice caps. So I heard. Horton's. Best the. A free double doubles in the front. And So yeah, I mean it was. It was tough at times for sure when you're sitting there grinding your way, but we're fortunate to have a good team. So we never felt like we were out of it and I know you guys touched on a bit like when the teams down three one, three two or you kinda thrown in the towel just to get home like we didn't have that feeling we had a feeling. We're like we were wedding every single game and we're never done in this series resides in Boston down beside besides Dallas and so we always knew we'd find a way so. We're going home mentality attitude we came together. You know obviously. You guys know hotels you you. You have a few drinks, but it's Kind of hanging out and you really don't have anyone Cannellino beside yourself and your body is at your part of the team. So you kind of have to make make ends meet and I thought we did a good job with that.
Gronk leaves his mark: Dent in Lombardi trophy
"It sounded like. That's the sound of Lombardi trophy instantly becoming vintage and gronk leaving one more. Mark literally on the patriots franchise that video by the way is now been viewed one point seven five million times since it was posted just last night. Well, then despite the time they spent together think yet another pitch. Use the trophy as a bat. They sort of have these testimonials from all of his teammates there. They're all. Like, we didn't think he'd actually do come on. This is. Bank. About the patriots, though, is that they have so many Lombardi trophies. They afford to have one just kind of like be there dirty one. Just the one that they beat up. Modal on on on weekends. Basically. They don't they don't have to be careful with it. I mean, if they have like a trophy procession like around the country to show patriots fans of AB scattered around the US, I've got six to choose from. If you're the jets like you got to carefully manage like which cities that one's going to be. Yeah. Lost or something big deal. We more than a handful. This is going to be the Lombardi dash grunk tro. Yes. Great story to tell about
2019 NFL Draft prospects
"We're about three weeks from the NFL draft. It's been an interesting off season. If you were bears fan last season. It was interesting the bears gone out and done a lot of things this off-season than to talk about that and much much more. We bring in our guy NFL writer, Eric at home. Nice enough to jump on and Eric tonight. Everything's good. Yeah. It was just thinking these last three weeks for the drafter get a feel like any turn into here that always does every single year seems like it takes a long time here in Chicago. We've always been interested in the draft. Because usually the bears were bad a high draft pick. And now they were smart last year and traded pigs got gotta Khalil Mack. And now they've not picking until the third round unless they make a move. But I mean, I think it seems like all their other moves have been in you know, in free agency and bringing. Players in. So it's not nearly the draft excitement here in Chicago. Like, it was when just imagine if the draft was here, and it was no bears draft pick for you know, for the first day and a half down. Admit what difficult I think it would be legal to do that. The office. Like, let's about this. The bears probably will make their selection around nine o'clock. I think on Friday night. So you settle in. You know, maybe, you know, get some food get something to eat whatever it's going to be a while. I don't think they'll be moving up. They don't have a lot of picks. So yeah, it's gotta be patience is virtue for bears fans outside of kicker because kickers not real answer. When you talk about to what's the biggest need for the bears. Hang into the draft. It's a great question. You know, I think it probably, you know, I think what they did themselves. A lot of a good favor by refunding airless, you know, and just you know for a one year deal. Right. We know he's the third outside guy. But still it just eliminated one spot that you have to kinda reach four and not reach four. But you know, have to hope that somebody is at that position waiting for you in the draft. So it probably slimmed down to two maybe three or four positions. I would think running back has to be on that list. You know, I personally would like to see. Them. Get more death on the offense of line. And I think the secondary either corner or safety would be a spot they can look at and their few defensive action, the strap that I think could play, you know, cover the flight and also places safety. So there's some versatile guys in this great year for either position a corner safety, but it's deep enough where they could possibly get somebody there. So I would just, you know, spit balling kinda Dr throwing I would say those it's likely that they could be picking one of those three spots that eighty seven toys have you ever seen as I'm asking the question. I know we've all seen it. But have you? I was gonna ask you if you've seen the situation where teams running back like Jordan Howard performed relatively well and was light by many people. And but basically the head coach had no use form at this point. And that's why they ended up moving them. Yeah. I mean, obviously, totally different situation from what happened with Levy on bell. You know, those are the exceptions to the rule, but you know, it is one of those. Position where if you're not one of the elite top, you know, five or six guys in the league at your spot. You know, there's only so much teams willing to kind of sink into that dishing. I know that there have been back strapped in the top. You know, five ten picks several years, it's not gonna have this year. But it's happened. A lot in recent history or often more often than I would've expected. I know Todd Gurley got his big deal. I know other people have gotten pretty good money. That's dishing bell sign this off season. But there's a drop off, you know. And so I think if you're not special, you know, that maybe are deemed expendable depending on the system. And so you know, I can see both sides why they moved on. And I think they feel like with Mike Davis Torri Cohen, they add one more the draft. You know, maybe Ryan dollars trading Kampe preseason hero again or something like that. But you know, we'll see I think they will try to add at least one more. And then maybe an underrated free agent to add on top of that. Daryl. Patterson is. Is an interesting guy. But he's been an interesting guys come into the league. Other people have found out ways to use them and the patriots even lined him up in the backfield as a running back. Do you expect Matt Nagy to do that? Also, not only just swing passes and give them in and around and things like that. And also given the ball out of the running back position. Yeah. It's a great option. I think you know, the patriots really the first team to really unlocked at running ability. I mean like you said when he was in Oakland, you know, other places he was running those kind of gadget runs and things like that. But I mean, they line them up as a tailback and got buffalo game was it was crazy to watch. He had twenty something carries. And so, yeah, it was it was a strange thing to think about you know, a six to two hundred twenty pound receiver who could run like the wind lining up kind of power back. But he can do it. I think that really added to the appeal. He's the perfect Matt Nagy player. They'll run kick off, you know, he could be a wide receiver if you need to. I don't think he's more than. A number four. But still, you know, having that deeper out option is important. And I think that's you know, that kinda speed if Taylor Gabriel is out there, they may not have that exact replica that so it's different version of speed. And then as you said we saw last year that he can be running back, you know, in cut a break glass in case for -mergency situation. Seahawks quarterback. Russell Wilson wants a new deal. He gave the Seahawks April fifteenth as a deadline to get that deal done. Do you think he gets done in what type of deal? Do you think Russell Wilson who get from the Seahawks? So here's my hypothetical question here. Like what they let's say if April sixteenth by parents diversity, by the way. Let's. Let's say April sixteenth. They offer him. The richest TV deal of all time. You're gonna say oh sorry. The deadline. Hey, understand that this thing happened in January. We didn't really hear about it until very recently. But meeting his, you know, giving them a deadline, but you know, it just doesn't make a lot of stints. It's not a if something magical happens on that calendar day, not as some kind of contract, you know, bonus kicks in or anything else that would prevent them from getting this thing done, or if there's some kind of you know, league deadline or something like that. It's not July fifteenth and the franchise player, so it's just one of those kind of subtle threats from the from the Wilson camp saying, hey, don't forget about me, baby. You know, I still want to get my deal. I still want to get this thing done. You know, there's an opportunity for him to really cash in. And also kind of hold them hostage a little bit. I suspect it there's a good chance that gets done. But for months now there have been whispers that you know, maybe the Seahawks aren't quite prepared to pay him. What what a lot of people think he's worth it would at least entertain the idea of. What could we get you know, trade for him? Just theoretically, what would he get you know, is worth three first Thursay? We're still talking about a thirty thirty one year old guy. And there's still a handful of teams that really badly need that franchise different speaking quarterback. So I I don't know. I still think it's gonna get done 'cause that's city loves them. Even if a lot of past teammates were the biggest Russell Wilson fan. They know how much he means for the team another couple minutes with NFL writer, Eric at home and Erica week or so ago, rob gronkowski decided to retire. A lot of people on Twitter and everywhere else going, okay. The best tight end. Maybe you'll ever play the game has retired. Who's the best tight end in the NFL? Now who do you like? Yeah. I mean, that's a great question. To kinda depends what you want. So if you guys can do with grunk did which is being impact players blocker, and as receiver, you know. And and think about all the calls that were made against gronk over the years. He was kinda like the Cam Newton of the tight end position like say what that's not interference. Though, he just, you know, even with that work in Gascony was so special. I love the fact that Travis Kelsey can be as dangerous, you know, the last couple of years he's actually been a better receiver than gronk. No question about it. But he's not nearly the blocker that he is. You know, we see some of these young pass catching tight. I mean, George Kittle out in San Francisco at times has flashed like he could be the best to way tight in the league because he blocks his tail off. He's got great receiving chops. And really the only thing that's kind of held them back injuries. I don't necessarily think you can have a long career. So this might be one of those debate that we kinda have for years. I don't think there's any one guy that fills that checked off all the boxes like like gronk did. And he had injury issues too. But still when he was out there. There's really no doubt. And I don't know that that that one guy even though there are some great blockers. It's about staying receivers you rarely see both. Do you think that Jason Witten can still be productive? I don't know man this. I wanted to I know Jason Witten the player, it was outstanding. He was just so consistent day in and day. I knew what you're going to get from. He was probably, you know, he was unsexy version of gronk and that he could block and catch fast but a year off his age. I know they say they're going to come in just and all that. His feeling this thing could kind of turn south, and we could see 'cause he looked slow by the end when he was out there last time. He just wasn't the same guy. Eric, we appreciate jumping for few minutes. We'll hopefully those go to slow the next couple of weeks. We'll talk to you soon. All right. Enjoy the run up to the draft guys. Thanks. They got home jumping on talking NFL. Like Whitten wasn't good at the end. Then like fancy players, look like, wait. Hold on. Really? Like, what is she some Witten really gonna bring to the Cowboys? Here's a guy wanted to bring up to you. Because this is a guy that I thought when he got to the NFL was going to have a bigger impact than he's head and OJ Howard at the tight end. Okay. Because what we saw in college. We thought. Okay. The when this guy gets here Dowd using is just because the quarterback situation and the problems have had do you think he can still become a dominant tight end in this league? Maybe because he did it in college. And you assume that that body type in his speed is is ability to get down field. And you know, James Winstons been not very good. No. And I think a lot of people misread what Tampa Bay is doing. I don't think he's there for the long haul. I think Tampa Bay if they could find someone else to be their quarterback. They would go with that person. Yeah. So whether or not it's trying to find a quarterback in this year's draft. Or or or planning for the future? Elsewhere. But like I don't trust him as Winston do.
Mike Trout, Angels finalizing a record 12-year, roughly $430 million extension
"Today might trout sign. The biggest contract in American sports history. Twelve years four hundred and thirty million dollars. Not only does he get the most money over the course of his contract beating Bryce Harper. But he also surpasses that Grank for the highest average annual value. No. Just saying. Wow. Oh, hi. Thank you. I like. Yeah. I crazy. And you know, why that sixty eight dollars a minute for the next twelve years. Would anyone make over a dollar a minute? Plenty of people would. But I'm just saying like how like it's not a huge percentage of people that make a dollar a minute. Sixty bucks an hour. Think about sixty dollars an hour. That's a ton of money. Yeah. Gene. He's getting paid crazy. Second right insanity. He's like Joel Embiid in the Hulu commercial, Hulu has live sports. Then they just throw money at him who has live sport that. That's my trout just hand me the money as I'm walking down the street because I'm getting unbelievable. But you know, what as a player? He absolutely deserves it as a baseball player strictly. The most gifted baseball player we have seen. Since Ken Griffey junior was in his prime in Seattle, and many people would argue might trout is better. But it brings up an interesting. Discussion. This contract empowers Mike trout to continue to do nothing for the game of baseball in terms of promoting it might trout does very very very very little to promote the game of baseball. And this contract empowers them to continue to do the same thing. The question is is that the right thing. Like is it incumbent upon somebody like Mike trout to promote the game of baseball. Should he be promoting the game of baseball? Should he make more appearances? Should he tried to be more commercials? Should he try to be on sitcoms or whatever it is host Saturday Night, Live, whatever they it is should Mike trout. Be more of an ambassador for the game of baseball because he's not. Four hundred thirty million dollars mean that he doesn't have to because if he's still worth that much to an organization, then why should he have to go above and beyond to promote himself? The angels in baseball. Or is it like, okay, dude? Like. You're getting four hundred thirty million dollars. You think you could? You know appear on a few more talk shows. I know they can't make him do that. I'm talking about the just the the public opinion thing. Do you think that he should nowadays game paid four hundred thirty million dollars over the next twelve
2019 Super Bowl props: Halftime prop suggests Maroon 5 could play a ‘SpongeBob SquarePants’ song
"A football fan chances. Are you may? Place prop bets on Sunday Super Bowl like how long the national anthem will be. And how many times the announcers will say grunk? Here's another one gaining traction will maroon five sings sweet victory. That's the song that air during a two thousand one episode of SpongeBob squarepants in which some of the shows characters performed at halftime of the bubble ball game intended to mimic the Super Bowl as preposterous as that. Seems the betting odds right now are pretty strongly leaning towards. Yes, prophets are great.
"grunk" Discussed on Nickel Package
"It's not a bad thing that they are playing better now than they did during the regular season. But it does mean that it wasn't inaccurate for people to think they weren't the greatest team. These leads that always disappoints me when it seems like you have to defend yourself. I very rarely noticed Meena like jabbing with. Yeah. I was running errands. And I saw stop these idiots even text. I was like their port or something. Sometimes boredom can be very dangerous. I have done some weird things on Twitter when I'm Boorda things. I searched too. Other good hot takes out there that are being tweeted out. Let's take one from Mike Reese saying that Tom Brady says seeing gronk enjoying opening night was one of the highlights for him and gives them a good feeling. That's what he said. Obviously not the hottest of hot takes. But I'm always interesting you between the lines. Fritzy, saying Reese is locked in with the patriots. He's easily one of the best reporters we have covering that team. But I think his sentiments there were we were talking about earlier will I think we haven't really talked about the patriots offense. I actually think we might see a little more grunk than people expect especially if the Rams play, man. I mean there is no grunk matchup. There's no good. Even at this slightly deteriorated grump version, he's still a tough match-up. But I do find the the Brady grop relationship. Very interesting, especially in light of the Brady, Bella check relationship because you remember over the summer where we learned that apparently they're going to trade to to destroy and grunk said he's only playing for Brady essentially and showing some bit of loyalty to Brady then you have all the like rumored friction between Brady and Bella tick. I just liked to magin that gronk and Tom Brady go off in trash talk and trust ballot. Check. Oh. To sit around when we leave here. We're gonna go bad mouth bosses at at boots and Wagle's I'm going to do something more as like a hoe door brand relationship where around carrying radio on his shoulders and goes wrong. I think definitely hang out together. I think all the patriot friends all the guys on the team hang out together and definitely probably fill. Not me. I don't get it. JJ watt. This very odd. He said you should try spaghetti squash tastes, just like real spaghetti as an Italian person. He's nuts await actually wrote. Are you nuts? Have you ever? Even had real spaghetti. Oh, he's in my corner up JJ. Why? I think we can also we love spaghetti. That's not a very hot take. Delicious. All right. So fortunately, you guys have been very active on Twitter over the last five minutes has been an uptick because of you think general Laskey who's just sitting at home. Twitter searches though, I want to. Disclose at least one of those before the end of the show all down these holes where Mike why am I search ING this person or this tight topic? It's just very strange weird thing. I was looking cloudy today on Twitter. Yeah. Clown that had a Twitter handle. What is it clown tweet? That's. I'm glad you shared that. It. Our guys that is it for today. We are back it. I live from Atlanta back tomorrow at one thirty eastern mature check us out. We just tomorrow. Join us and Shergar thoughts. So we're gonna go check out the rest of Atlanta. But we'll be back tomorrow. You could..
"grunk" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"They are so diverse with their formation looks that they create a lot of. Problems for defenses. You know, I I don't recall them playing any better than they did against the chargers. I was shocked by their effectiveness. What what blew away on the film about New England's offense against what we consider to be excellent charger personnel. Well, I think that game was an odd game. Because of what the chargers chose to do the chargers essentially chose to play with six defensive backs as their base defense. So when the patriots lined up with a full back on the field and big people. They had Devlin grunk on the field charger. Still had sixty -fensive backs on the field, and they really got hurt with the run game. Yes. Through the first half. And again, that's what they chose to. Do. They spent all week taking that approach. They obviously thought it would be the best approach, but it hurt them. Let's go to Kansas City's offense. Tyree kills fastest player. Probably football. He gave he gave the patriots fit, and I can tell you. The patriots secondary Devin mccourty, Stefan Gilmore, generally, it's very well coached. Bella check has a history with DVD's. I think they have a pretty good secondary in my opinion. Maybe not as gifted like a chargers, but I didn't gilmore's terrific player. I mcchord is you know in his thirties. But he's a very good player. Tyreek hill ate him alive. Plaxico Burress was on my show, forty minutes ago. And he said nobody takes away the inside routes like Bella check, they use the sideline as defender. Do the patriots. They had no success against tyreek hill, and they generally take away your big receiving threat. Why is he such mayor for them? Keep us in mind in the first game they played and that was week six Bella checkmated decision the decision he made in that game. Was that he was going to take away Kelsey and not hill. Now, he may change that decision. Yeah. Because. One thing about the cheeses besides being very well schemed. They have very good personnel, and he'll presents different issue because of the pure speed. But they are there's certain defined tendencies that the chiefs have in certain formations. And if I know that Bill bell, check will know that. And I'll be very anxious to see what they do one tendency in particular when they go empty and the chiefs are very good out of empty is. They put tyreek hill in the inside slot to the trip side what we call three strong, and they tend to run him vertically from there. And you have you can't let him get over the top of you. So you're saying the chiefs are tad more predictable out of their sets every team is he that's the thing. People think that these games are wanting lost with cool stuff that no one for everybody is is predictable. Probably not the right word, everybody tendencies and teams know what the opponents tendencies, you don't win these games because you're. Tricking people and your fooling people. I'm gonna throw a guy's name out. I don't even know if we have tape for him that I think's going to be big this weekend. Chris Jones defensive alignment for the chiefs. He has emerged, and maybe I just wasn't paying attention. But it seems in the last two months he is a merged as a a real force a really difficult Guida block. My takeaway on this game. If New England struggles with him and has to double him. It could affect the run game. Just talk a little about Kansas City's defensive front. I think Chris, gee, I'm not saying Aaron, Donald or Fletcher Cox. But boy when I watched Kansas City play, Greg. He is hard to stay in front of. Well, this will be purely a function in my view, and this is not profound Colin, but it speaks to what you're saying of the patriots being able to stay relatively on schedule because when they're playing well. And then when you saw them last week, it seemed as if Brady got the ball out so quick, yes. They were rarely in long yard situations. There may be no more patient quarterback that I can remember than Tom Brady in willing to throw the ball five yards. And very often those five yard games become eight yard gains..

It could affect the run game. Just talk a little about Kansas City's defensive front. I think Chris I'm not saying Aaron, Donald or Fletcher Cox. But boy when I watch Kansas City play, Greg. He is hard to stay in front of. Well, this will be purely a function in my view, and this is not profound Colin, but it did speak toward you're saying of the patriots being able to stay relatively on schedule because when they're playing well. And then when you saw them last week, it seemed as if Brady got the ball out so quick, yes. They were rarely in wrong yard situations. There may be no more patient quarterback that I can remember than Tom Brady in willing to throw the ball five yards. And very often those five yard games become eight yard gains..
"grunk" Discussed on First Things First
"There's only been one game gronk had more than three catches all year long. Only had three touchdowns. They all these incentives in his contract. He didn't really get any Licken because he's does this year is not looked like. Forget the best tight in football. He hadn't looked like one of the five best tight ends and football. Does he have something he can tap into? Because if not Derwin James will erase him Derwin James would be the exact type of player you wanted to match up against prime grunk, much, less a lesser. So I think that is a key. And I think Chris's point of the page from yesterday thought it was such it's almost obvious, but I hadn't even considered it. So I guess it's not that obvious. They last week. They were playing the quarterback who had the least ability to audible at the line, the least freedom to look at what the defense is doing and change it. You said they call it run. It is what you're doing with Lamar. Yes. Now, they're playing the charges are playing the quarterback with the most freedom. The most ability to look at the defense as showing him and say, this is what's better for us. I've got the weight into five seconds before you reveal what type of front you're in. You don't move into Tom Brady points out the Mike everything else is smoking mirrors. If he don't point the Mike he has set the. Texan? He's always going to set his protection. But what San Diego does as unique. They're able to go to this NASCAR type Apax when you think about the giants and the trouble. The again, the offensive line is both a moving inside. Sometimes Melvin Ingram off the ball isolate against the this kid Walsum. Yes. Who allows them to be able to do that? And can't those guys get pressure up the gas because Tom Brady if he ever takes his eyes from downfield. It's only when he gets a gap pressure. So it's gonna be that you get interior pressure on time Brady because his grace e is he's one at least accurate quarterbacks on the move because he's got here's the rush in seize the Russ get to them early and get too often and get more ground. That's the most important part. Can they get to him with four? And if they go out there with these little guys with a wo- sue Bosa and Ingram, do they change the play play power football and make you pay. It's going to be a constant chess match all the I think the chess mass Chit chestnut. Ass is as important match is important between Gus Bradley and Josh mcdaniels what they're going to try to do believe Brady's ability to make plays down the field to punish this defense is a key to the game. But you know, you plan against the patriots defense. They're not giving up more than twenty points, especially at home. So my key of the game on offense of side of the ball for the LA charges. Man. You got to build scores from points. Philip rivers if he don't have four five soundbites talking about. Hi, Bella TEK that was a stupid blitz had all out like Mike dump after. Moments. He doesn't have a couple I down moments where he's fist pumping and things like that. And it becomes really important outside. The secondary of the patriots is really underrated. Can the y receivers and Ken the tight end Antonio gates. He's running slow motion can convert on third down because he's big on third down and the wild card in the game. Well hundred Henry's been a full goal week. When you talk about the guy who towers ACL in the off season training activities hasn't played all season long. He's now been a full go. And and I know fantasy football fans, I know people like all injuries back. He's activated..
"grunk" Discussed on GSMC Fantasy Football Podcast
"Welcome back. Everyone of the GMC fantasy football podcast. We just finished about quarterbacks receivers and running backs. Now, we're going onto the tight ends, which is probably the most cruel. It's it's pretty crucial. But people don't take as serious as it should. But who's your number one tied to get the most points? Kelsey kelsey. I know that some I know e- bronze up their Email lists. Well, again, you know, what's crazy? This is another good week for tight ends. Because last week there wasn't too many good options. There was no Kelsey. There is no gronk to even consider. It was just urge an E Bryan. Basically, it was almost grunk grunk is of question, Mark. But even still better than a lot of the absolutely. You could see gronk like having throwback type of game where he scores a touchdown or. Yeah. Like in the playoffs. It just a whole different scenario than regular season for sure I had to you. I gotta go Kelsey as well. But if I had to make someone different air Icke Brown. Yes. All polls for my most points, most points. I think Kelsey will have the most defense of the cool Kelly Kelsey is a whole different monster. Yeah. So you have Kelsey is the most points. Yeah. And Kelsey is the tallest guy there, and he's the toughest guy there. And no one's going to be able to cover him. Like, how can you stop that? And the answer is no one has been able to best value is Kelsey the best value or someone else. Seven Kelsey is at seven thousand in grunk, set forty six hundred so I might have to go I might have to go with gronk on this one for best price. Does it where you though that? He really hasn't. He's only had one big doesn't worry me. But forty six hundred like titan, you're going to be at Suzy go to like, and you're gonna be like low on money. Depressing stat. I don't know. What is it? These are gronkowski's season numbers. No, forty seven receptions. Oh, gosh. Six hundred eighty two yards and three touchdowns. Well, how many games did he play? He only missed three games. Why really weak? That's actually that's actually surprising. He had. Let's see one two. He only had four games where he hit his projection or better. Wow. Okay. But I agree that he he's really cheap forty six hundred is about as cheap as you're ever going to get rob gronkowski. Yeah. And if you're in if you're at the end of your money and says like, oh, you can only get like forty five hundred average left. You're gonna take advantage of that. So you have them as your best value. I will be Eric runs. Fifty five hundred Kelsey seven thousand I will though with them. The chargers secondary, especially during James Albro safety. He will be looks like he will be covering wrong. Oh, another tough day at the office. I'm I'm saying I'm not saying pick him. I'm saying he's going to be the probably the best the lowest price for most contributing. I think. Gonna say the best values Ibran five hundred still pretty good expensive, though, it is it is I was tempted to say that, but I was one hundred zero lot and groans only forty six expensive. But you know, for me, it was either him or to be honest with you hurts. Well, spoiler He's my stayaway. All right. All right. How many times an hour? Go ahead. Well, it just falls. That's not as Goto. That's winces Goto. That's true. And like, I know he's had a couple of good playoff runs. But honestly when it comes foles he would pass to all shows Jeffrey any day of the week over. Arts, and that's why I'm very hesitant to take him. He's had a good season. But it just like like I said that's went his guy not foles guy. And when you have a guy like, we know foles guys, Jeffrey, we know he's going to get the ball constantly. Yes. And even though we didn't talk about him our wide receivers. Like, he's obviously going to be showing people choose, and that's a smart move. My say ways grunk, actually..
Walker Sands - Secrets of an Award Winning Tech PR Agency
"Everyday on this podcast. I try to look at how technology is transforming a different industry and today I wanted to explore the world of tech PR and marketing, and maybe just maybe post a few minutes along the way, for example. Today's guest is responsible for Greg. Walker sounds well established mid western b2b tech expertise all the way to Seattle which incidentally is one of the fastest growing tech hubs in the anti US. This kind of got me thinking founders in the emerald city and the windy city any different. So I'm at any Google senior account director and partner at Walker. Sounds onto show today to find out more so book hold on tight as I beam your. So is all the way to Seattle. So we can speak with any senior director and partner Waqar sense to talk about a variety of topics around PR digital marketing technology and text onto. So massive warm. Welcome to the show, and he can you tell them they is about who you are. And what you do. Of course. Hi, my name's Amy cooder, and I must senior account director in a partner out Walker sands communications. So where a PR indigent marketing agency, specializing in BB technology. So I've been with the firm for about seven years. Now, I started in our Chicago offense worked there for a couple of years and then moved out to the west coast to help expand Walker sans presence in San Francisco and Seattle. So that's kind of what I've been tackling the best couple of years. I'm glad you. But you know, because you've been credited with affectively bringing woke Assange well established midwest b2b tech experts. He's all the way to see. Oh, so tell me a little bit about your career and your role walk assertions. Yeah. Of course. Yes. So I will say I'm originally from the midwest. Born and raised there went to school there worked there for a long time. So I would definitely describe myself as a true midwestern. So I think that's unique in how how the different in terms of how we approach digital marketing and PR in the west coast and a lot of the companies out here. We definitely have that mid western hard working out work ethic. I would say we definitely bring a humbleness about us to ourselves. Noah's coast says if you read a lot of the news at Steph linked talked a lot about being especially San Francisco city of a lot of egos. So we like to bring our mid western approach to things and instead focus more on driving the best results that we can possibly drive in kind of block out all of the other note noise and really focused on working with our clients drive resolves in deliver the best PR and digital. Marketing programs that we possibly can. But it is incredible achievement. I'll be what do you think the secret to that is about humble side? But coming from the west is that what it as do. You think is it much more than that? I mean, it definitely is a part in it. It's really walkers. The ends a great agency nothing can be credited to one individual. And I think that's something. That's unique about our agency is were while myself, and my colleague well cruise Grank ventured out to the west coast. We had the full backing of our Chicago office helping us make this successful. So I think that's definitely something that you get in the midwest and just as part of Walker the end that's one team mentality. And so that's really allowed us to be incredibly successful on the west coast. But then also with that we do have a very unique approach to the how we approach marketing and PR on so by combining a kind of the support system that we have from our Chicago team in all talented people. We have there with. Our unique approach that we've been able to bring to the west coast. That definitely seems to be definitely our value prop out here in very different than other firms that we I'm across and that definitely seems to be resonating with companies out there that's been allow us. That's been allowing us to grow at the rapid pace that we've been growing at for the past two years. Not
"grunk" Discussed on Arrowhead Pride
"That's the only player I can I can think at least in the secondary that can deal with tight end the stature of a grunk to me in my opinion. And you're gonna see grunk potentially. If you know if she's in six weeks, maybe if gronk is convey if grunk and make it to the AMC title game, or whatever who knows. But is that the only guy barber is at the only guy you see on this chiefs roster that can cover a tight end. No other guys got ability to do is just you got to be very consistent your technique. You got to kind of be the whole you leverage in and know what angles taken no win where you got help. When you do have help you can't feel comfortable right now at Eric Murray and Ron Parker. I. Hitch. Well, I mean, I'm talking about the safety position. That's kind of what I highlighted at the beginning hitches another story. Anybody tight end he seems to struggle if he has a few weeks off yet mean he had the problem with the ribs. And so he was kind of out of practice for a little bit in it. You know, I it seemed like he was kind of at a sink so not to give him excuses. But if you know that could potentially be a problem. I'm just talking about we see the same thing from Ron Parker, and Eric marina it eight. It's it's below. It's just below average. Terrible. It's not good. But I I don't know if you wanna be Z, minus quality. I don't know if you wanna be relying on Eric Murray and a FC playoffs when you have this caliber offense. That's a question for you as chief fans are you at a good mood right now, a forty thirty three win is still another win divisional in it's AFC win. But a forty thirty three win over this team. I know it's Reiter week barber. But are people that good mood today? Yeah. I think so it's not as long as we stay first place in the AFC west. I seat overall in the play offs. I don't I don't think it's any. I don't care is a one point win. I don't think it's any margin of victory does go. Make anybody unhappy as long as you continue to whole your own destiny. Control your destiny, and you expect in the playoffs. They have to come to Kansas City has come through to see of Ray had come through the kingdom. That's that's the go. I not about the points per game. Is that about who you who you play weekend and week out is maintaining that edge that average coming coming postseason. I think at this game. And again, I'm using this word kind of I understand there's more important. There's more important things in life than football and your favorite football team winning a game. But I mean, this is as much of a crisis as you get for a teacher. Right. So you able to manage victory through crisis mode. We don't know the details of the locker room we can only look from afar. We don't know who was boys with Kareem hunt and was mentally affected by this. I mean, it seemed like tyreek hill was he's had three drafts all year. And it seemed like he had a troubled passing or. Sorry, catching footballs today. Do you were in crisis mode, and you still manage but a forty points in the raiders defense? Didn't look great for. Sure. But again, you can lose to anyone on any given Sunday National Football League. We saw it with the Green Bay Packers. And the Arizona Cardinals today who were big favorites at home. You mentioned it off the air, and you still got the win..
NFL playoff picture: Chiefs’ loss against the Rams helps the Patriots in the race for the AFC’s top seed
"So Nick after you saw what you saw from both teams offensively last night in the Rams and the chiefs can the patriots keep pace with that type of offense St. think not the patriots we've seen through ten weeks now with the patriots won't turn the ball over the way both teams Dade yesterday. They won't commit a dozen first-half penalties or close to it. The way the chiefs did yesterday, they're not going to beat themselves. But you looked at just the overwhelming offense of talent take the quarterbacks out of it and Brady last month hadn't been great take him out. Let's Brady come the playoffs going to be awesome with lesser grunk with Josh Gordon that still is not yet seemingly fully on the same page with Brady you look at what the saints have what the Rams have what the chiefs have what the Steelers have even and you say as far as talent. Perspective. The patriots are playing Tom Brady's stacked deck against him. And so I mean, I wouldn't count the patriots out in any scenario because they're so good at the details. But as far as trying to win a shootout, I know they did against cancer the earlier in the year. I was with gronk little healthier that was with the team playing a little bit better. I don't think they can keep up with the top flight offenses in the league as we're seeing them right now, we always do this in football is not a tale of the take. You look at the pats. How they play you watch the game last night. You'll be like, wow. How are they going to keep up this going to do the pets have started seven and three in the last ten years? They've done that half the time, but they've only made it to the Super Bowl with a by. So if they were to play one of these teams, and they had a bye, you're not gonna see Tareq you'll have two hundred yards that does not going to happen to a Bill Belichick team. So they might go score some points. They might build move the ball. But you're not gonna have one guy Bill to dominate the game. So in seeing this what? Say it's not about the offense. Do Bill Chitwood do something about Kansas City, entire healed. Now would Kelsey heard him would a healthy. Sammy Watkins Bill to hurt them. They have so many talented players on both side the way the Rams played patients. Couldn't do anything with that Jared Goff played that way in the Super Bowl. The patriots wooden goes, Tom because there's not one thing that they would build a take away from them was Bill bell. Check is going to try to do. The thing about is. It's not a matter who's the best right now. We know the patriots are going to get better. It's predictable. They're always better as the season goes on. So now in these last six games will they go five and one will they go six to build a get either that number two seater that number one seat that is the key to them. They will keep evolving keep getting better. Let's see how the Rams how they respond to this by a right? It's still a very very young team. I do like how they responded after the law. Us to New Orleans how they've come back and how Sean McVeigh has replaced the overall productivity of Cooper Cup. So those things I think are very very positive going forward. But the patriots they will not be the same team in January that they are today..
How Likely Is Rob Gronkowski Vs. Jalen Ramsey Matchup In Patriots-Jaguars Read more at: https://nesn.com/2018/09/how-likely-is-rob-gronkowski-vs-jalen-ramsey-matchup-in-patriots-jaguars/
"A rematch of last year's AFC championship game between the patriots and the Jaguars. But this one with a hair more fireworks last year, Jacksonville, almost upset the pets before Tom Brady lit it up this here. Jalen Ramsey spent his off season criticizing players. He deemed overrated. He mentioned grunk. Interesting. Also, interesting. Jalen Ramsey seems confident heading into this week's matchup. Listen to this. Defensive coordinator. If someone says rob gronkowski is overrated, what would you say to that person? Said, he's crazy. Might be crazy. I don't care. Call him about staffer. You're, you're, you're, you're saying, you think good good now, get it supposed to eat good. But like you say, this to me is supposed to bring fear. I, I fear, no man period is good. His face all year. They got an incredible rush. Great, linebackers, great secondary. It's going to be very, very challenging, tough environment. We'll see what made up. He doesn't care any man, Chris, Kenny Noman even though it's quite a little bit of different tune than he was singing in the off season when he talked about gronk. All right, who's got the edge in this rematch the pats offense or this Jaguars defense? Can he says the pets offense just because we know what they are, the patriots gonna score points. That's just what it is. It's going to be somewhere between twenty one and twenty eight points. I think the average twenty eight point Sogame last year you saw what they did this year opening game against Texas, so we know what the patriots are. So I think this is going to be up to the Jaguars offense to be able to match points so defensively, I know that the Jaguars they're going to try to take away rob gronkowski. You saw at AFC title game. You only had one catch before you got knocked out with that concussion. But I mean they're going to have a plan to deal with rob gronkowski. It's about the other guys in Tom Brady always finds a way because that's just what he and Bill Bill to check do. But looking at the Jacksonville Jaguars, they're gonna have to find a way to be able to move the football. You saw it in that giant's game after mid. Ways that second quarter we're Linda four net got knocked out. They struggled to move the football. They had one scoring drive where they got the ball at midfield, but other than that, they weren't able to move the ball only four first downs after that drive. So I mean, that's a struggle for this Jaguars team offensively than four nets banged up. I think TJ Yeldan is a service of running back, but he's not the difference maker that four net is for that offense. So I'm going to say that the patriots have the advantage in this matchup because I don't know that the Jags offense is going to be able to match points with Tom Brady. Yeah, pats offense definitely do have the advantage, New England. They don't listen to any of the interviews that other teams do. But what I've seen through the years, especially from any defensive back that makes any type of comment about New England if they were cheating, anything that they say that might be shot at New England in the game plan. During the game. Bill Bill check will either run at that person with big Lyman are someone like gronk or they run the double move our account. Move a trick play look Bill to take advantage and make somebody look real real bad. So I expect them Jalen is going to guard gras. I expect in some of those situations. They're going to get gronk the football, but also I would spec them to run at grunk so could blonde Jalen and that's not something you don't have to be afraid, but that's something that Jalen does not want to see. He doesn't have the. I discipline was I disciplined how they see the ball, how they see elephants is in Jalen used to being outside, and he's not used to having the action in front of him, but linebacker. See, that's why when Bart Scott was here, he was talking about if you try to travel with grunk, Bella check will do some things that take advantage of thing that you're not used to seeing so huge advantage to pats offense going against a very good Jags d, Chris, to your point about if you chirp during the week, they might have a special play for you in the game plan famously I'll just go back a decade because happened to a buddy of mine. Anthony Smith.
"grunk" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"It won't get any easier this Sunday against rob gronkowski. The last time gronk saw Ramsey was in last year's AFC championship game. Gronk only had one catch and then had to leave the game in the second quarter with a head injury before the season started Ramsey told ESPN the magazine that he didn't think rock was good yesterday, grunk responded. Take a listen. There can always be talking going back and forth is get heated up and everything. He's got. Keep your cool. And I mean, I don't see any benefit. To get a fifteen year apparently on the field because you lose your cool and so you've got to keep your cool and keep your head on straight Shannon who will win this matchup. I think I'm gonna take Ramsey, but a lot is predicated on that front for a lot of time. When you see a one on one match ups we automatically think is, is just between those two guys, but one guy's offensive line. The other guys defensive line need to do their job in order for you to do your job. The thing is you can't give gronk a steady diet of anything. You can't say. I'm just going to press him the entire game. Gives me, you need to press him. Some you need to play off. Some. You can't play off all the time because Tom Brady just raise up throwing the ball, and then you got heck on your hands. Trying to bring that big guy down, we we could fail or what we call shadowing land up in a press position. It just don't let him get get his hands on you. So he can grab you and throw you around, but just shadowy, you know, every once in a while have the lab backer run up underneath thing doubling doubly, double him up. But if you give Tom Brady a steady diet of, okay, this is the way they don't play grunk. He'll pick your part. So you have to do a lot of different things. And the thing we think wrong loses. Cool. We thought against buffalo scale, the guy held it gathered interception gronk didn't like it because he felt he had been being hailed all the time officials weren't calling it and he lashed out hit the guy ended up getting suspended. And what position did that guy play corner? Travis white yet. First-round pick late first round so shoe. The thing is what? Grop. I don't think. Gronk is much of a talker. And this is what always tell guys, you got to be true to who you are. If you keep it going, if you don't don't get into a ballgame, will they talker and feel you've got to try out, talk him. His game is predicated on that some guys complaining talk. Some gas can just talk. Some guys just played, pick your lane, staying there. Keep keeping moving. And if gronk this is not who you are talking back and forth. You don't talk back and forth. Don't get caught up in with Jalen, Ramsey sinker. Jalen go talk. That's what the guys Florida state lottery got Florida state. That's what they do. Not time wasn't much of a talker, but what is true? He didn't talk, but nobody was talking to him. 'cause you'd already going down you, you won't these problems that smoke. So for me, I think Jane Randall will get the better this matchup and plus we get to see his theory put to the test. He says the analytic show. That's what he said. When the corners cover rob gronkowski. He's next to nothing. He said he has quote unquote a very bad game. Now, Jalen Ramsey thanks. He's one of the top two or three corners and all of the ball. He gives to go against rob gronkowski guy that he said that when you put a court, a cornerback on him doesn't do very much. So we gotta top three corner going against the best tied in and all of football, we get an opportunity. You get to put the data to the test Jalen. I won't be watching watching that game world will be. I gotta watch that gay real. You know, one guy plays the position that I played. I knew that potential bear where interesting. So I'm going to give at least on Thursday Jalen Ramsey the edge in this because I have nothing but respect for him as a football player because he just might be the best corner in pro football. He's big strong fast. He bigger than Dion. Oh, yeah. And he is capable of backing his his trash, talk up case..
"grunk" Discussed on Get Up!
"Grunk is overrated. Sunday gronk has a chance to prove his I in what he breaking down week to matchups. I'm get up right now. There is a man who is really into things run pass option. You're a purist, it's not the game. We could've played Mary Poppins The big big leagues. leagues, You you know. know, get all. And welcome to get up presented by Genesis. The official jury vehicle of the NFL McColl Briscoe has joined us this morning in advance a little trip to Mexico, which I know you're not that I'm excited about very excited and Jay, is there another high profile athlete who has a burner account on Twitter? I just don't understand I. It was Kevin Durant. Now is dad's brand. You have hundreds of thousands of people following you on your normal account. Yet you create a burner account has five people following events to try to. We're going to get into that as we continue this hour Damien. Woody will be here in just a minute breaking down all the big week. Two matchups TIMMY Kirch in in a moment on the Boston. Red Sox did it last night. They are the first team to officially clinch a playoff berth in the baseball season, and it was on the night. They brought Chris sale back making his first start since August twelfth, they figured he'd throw about forty pitches over two innings while they gave up a leadoff double at any settled, and he's got a couple of strikeouts getting Devon, Travis and Justin. Smoke on sliders and then after hitting, Kendra, Morales, Devin won't decimal. He gets Randall Grischuk to pop up to end the inning. So we allow one hit got to strikeouts on twenty-six pitches in the first. Then he went to the bullpen and through pitches there. So his night was done. Bottom of seven. Meanwhile is the game played out. It's the Red Sox down to one. It's Mitch Moreland and the circle of pinches. They call him back. They send out Brock hold. Alex Cora, talk over and then Bronco makes them look like a genius with first and third and two main out. That's eight pinch hit. Three run shot for the Red Sox are four to two top nine. It's a seven to two game and watch here. Dwight Smith junior, he's going in the opposite direction. Back to the monster goes Andrew Benintendi and he's getting up. Just watch the camera angle, right? You can see the camera. No one's got a better view of that. Then bad dude in the camera. Well, and there is the camera that's the look that you have if you have that spot at Fenway park ribs onto win at seventy two. The first team in the majors to clinch a playoff spot this season, but do not celebrate quite so fast in Boston in the wildcard era, allies reports only five of the twenty five teams that were the first to clinch a postseason berth went on to win the World Series in two of those were the Red Sox that was seven and in two thousand thirteen and it was a muted celebration in the Red Sox clubhouse they have bigger ones to fry. But you see it here on picture in Steven Wright posted this. You see the team raising glasses of champagne, but they did not require goggles or anything like that. The big day or is that because of they expect more. I think that they have other celebrations at head of the, meanwhile, let's bring in TIMMY coaching here for a couple of thoughts. So the Red Sox clinch a playoff spot with. They're going to get past teams like Cleveland and Houston, and everybody else they need Chris sale through the one inning last night. What is the outlook for him going forward? Well, I think it's good, but I there has to be a concern that the best pitcher in the American League is on a forty pitch limit because of a sore shoulder three weeks before the playoffs. Again. However, what the Red Sox are doing here I think is the right thing. They're being extra cautious with their best pitcher, so he can be at one hundred percent strength when Tober comes which he wasn't last year and despite two trips to the disabled list and the sore shoulder, he's got twenty eight scoreless innings streak going. And his last nine starts. He's got seven walks and ninety two strikeouts..
"grunk" Discussed on The Fantasy Footballers - Fantasy Football Podcast
"Catching work. Yeah, this is this is a grunk special. I mean, he, he's just he is so incredibly important for this game. They're going to have to get the ball out and be creative against that defensive line grunk. I mean, we don't really need time it. He's the number one tight end. Yeah, we're gonna drafted him. You play him. I was just gonna say the like deandre Hopkins for all the people out there. Why is it talking about Hopkins 'cause you don't need to? Yeah, we're here trying to help me make a decision off to tell you the obvious. The way did you know rob gronkowski has never spent a dime of his contract money? Did you know that? What's he's never spent one dollar from his salary, just sponsors all endorsement money. That's it. And he seems like he's, he's one of those guys is really concerned with the incentives in his contract. So that's why this last contract where they bumped it all up like he wants to hit those incentives because he spends that money, he doesn't spend his contract month. Oh, I see.

Nine, whatever you gonna play when he gets blasted over the middle, is he gonna come back to the bra, took you seem stitching. His nose play with a mass drop sixty one on on on on the Hornets as broken. No, but he. Loved asked, and he'd be going around with a different mentality. That's a whole different ball football and basketball player. The why differently? Enough, realize it always comes back to this guy at some point. Thank you for being here. It's always good to get. Tom Brady is wide receiver group seems to constantly change and the patriots Jordan Mathews yesterday after he signed a one year deal this off season, but he reportedly suffered a significant hamstring injury on Sunday, the patriots maybe adding former titans wide receiver, Eric decker who worked out for the team this week. And yes, remember they will be without Jillian men for the first four games of the season. Shannon, what does this tell you. Kills me that a coach Bela checks. You gonna pull some weight or you guys to go. He was, I guess he was practicing whale playing well, and then he got Nick hamstring and coach Bela check says, you know what? You're not going to be doing this any good rehabbing on our dime. So we'll let you go ahead and go bring air Dicker and it looks like they're gonna sign deck, Jordan Mathews skip. I mean he really hasn't played well since he's left chip Kelly. I mean close to nine hundred yards. I two years, but he's always had this injury almost half thousand. Yeah, he's always had this injury bug that just popped up and I'm sure that factor the coach Bela checks decision of, yeah, you know, I was kinda hoping you're over this bug. Now, the last couple years deck has also suffered the injury bug, but I do believe that Eric decker is an upgrade over Jordan Mathews. He had his best years playing who skip pate, Manny. So you have a guy in Tom Brady that knows what he's doing with the football knows where to go with the ball is in complete command of this offense. And so I expect him to is big debt comes in this offense. I can see him catching. Forty fifty balls especially with Ellerman being the first the first four gay. Hell gronk it's still there not. He's still look at Tom Brady, Tom Brady can win without grunk, but you look at his numbers when gronk on the field. And you look at his numbers when gronk and on the field, this ubstantially different and plus decades. The mole grant Etima you know, they got Gatica got all all the Gallic, a guy.

Bella check can get away with near murder when it comes to the white outs this because it just doesn't matter. He has the greatest quarterback in the history of pro football who's also to use your term the greatest makeup artist ever because he can just cover up all the blemishes. It just doesn't matter. Just giving that guy, Joe Smith investors. Investors as the greatest ever. You know what Joe said that under. So. Look what just happened. Jordan Mathews was sort of the off season Saini by the New England Patriots because June Matty's dot, some ability. He played at my school Vanderbilt, and he is still the SEC all time career leader in catches and yards caught. That's pretty great, Nancy. See, it's a pretty good. It's right. And he's still the all time. Career leader is Jordan. Mathews those three years in Philadelphia were they were great, but they were pretty good, right. And guess who fell in love with Jordan Mathews who loved him like a brother was walk into your got Carson Wentz. He loved him some Jordan Mathews and they traded Jordan Mathews straight up for Ronald Darby who's a really good player so that that shows you that buffalo really valued Jordan Mathews that he He was. was. That's that's pretty. That's eighty. Trae they needed receiver they had let wilder would grow in said, we walk and go market Goodwin was gong. Yeah, so they need. They need Darby's a first round talent. Yeah, he's a, he's a playmaking top to your cornerback and so they value Jordan. He's in buffalo, right?

"And then every time we have to list the number of teams that we think are gonna make the Super Bowl, especially in the AFC if we get past New England in Pittsburgh, we're all stumped as to who even could be strong third behind those two. But you have rothlisburger who said the same running back and wide receiver for a couple of years and nothing really to show for it. Here's Brady that are just interchangeable parts. Now you. I mean, they went to the Super Bowl without grunk. Now Eshelman out. They went to the Super Bowl without Alan. I mean, it's pretty amazing that you have these guys that you think are very good or great players. You know, it's coaching and Brady. Now there's a, there's a combination there, but the defense is what's that that cost him the Super Bowl, the patriots don't punt Brady throws over five hundred yards and you lose again. That's it. There was a strip sack, Brendan Graham, that's it. How could you lose the Super Bowl where you don't punt where you say, hey, my quarterback threw for five hundred yards. Apple mclovin, but to be fair, he did not catch the ball when he showed up, right? If he was a better receiver. Isn't his Madden skills at pest pass, catching better. The Nick foles. I believe I somebody told me that because I don't play Madden, but somebody said, you know, Brady's pass. Catching skills are better. The Nick foles I go. How is that possible? Brady was horrible. He set us back like Tom just catch up. In Nick foles was able to catch the touchdown pass. I still following this with Hugh Jackson with the Browns. He is definitely going with tyrod Taylor. He's praising Baker Mayfield, junior the third, but it feels like. He should probably stop. You know, pricing Baker Mayfield because eventually somebody's going to say, why are you going to start him? And then he's going to know I'm starting tyrod Taylor and that's he should start tyrod Taylor because I think if he wants to keep his job, he's going to have to have tyrod Taylor win some games for him. And then eventually they put in Baker Mayfield junior, the third, and if there's some kind of relationship there and they wanna keep Hugh Jackson because he's a quarterback whispered. You got Baker Mayfield, then he keeps his job. But you know, he might be one and done this year fritzy. Would you learn? Chris Harrison would love to see rob gronkowski beyond bachelor in paradise at some point I how about Jared Goff throw him into the hopper. They're mclovin. Would you learn Steve Levy said that he thought he was going to get fired after the bulging mishap? Yeah, Seton O'Connor. Would you learn today if you're a young broadcaster, you should slow down when words get tricky? Yeah. Say bulging. Pause this? Yes. Bully new presentation from DP show films, bulging disc.

I believe in Joe, they'll always be there. Yeah, joking, sling joke and get back to being the Super Bowl MVP those two. And it's only two guys, but they'll always be there on the porch sipping some Gatorade and vice the add some lemonade, and they'll, you know, talking about the good old days with Joe. Joe says, he won't have to answer questions about the mar- Jackson because they'll be winning. Joe. Adorable. I just don't know if you're the Baltimore Ravens, and that's what you have at quarterback. I don't know how you're not in your front office just openly hoping for Lamar Jackson, steal Steelers, John. You know what I mean? Because they can probably because it's not how old is Joe flacco at this point and you've seen how Ben Rothlisberger here. Late in life always looks the way he runs like a skyscraper. You know, with legs, he's thirty three. It feels like Joe flacco is older than that. Does it not? Absolutely not. And is it just because he slow footed, like is it? Is it because he's gangly like it seems like Joe flacco is is well past his prime and thirty three is no longer well past your prime for the quarterback. Like when he's running even walking, it looks so painful when he picks his foot up off the ground. Hello? We've said before baby, giraffe, like just right, fresh out of the womb.

"grunk" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"I looked rob gronkowski is still a patriot but that might not be the case when the season starts grunk is reportedly working on a new deal in new england but an anonymous afc executive said quote until that's done i still think he's available pro football talk reported that the patriots were calling teams for a trade for grunk leading up to the draft and grants contract was believed to be the reason he missed some of the patriots off season rogue rim shannon how surprised are you that grunk is still available on surprise considering skip there were two weeks away from most teams being beheading training camp i would have thought this was something that would have happened if it was going to happen it would happen started free agency or at least by the draft coach avella check normally wheels and deal he liked draft picks he could have got something for still doesn't mean it couldn't happen but i'm surprised that we're still talking about grunk possibly being trade blocs inskip i've always felt that this was a ploy in order to get his contract redone i believe has outperformed his contract so he should have should have renegotiated because i'm of the belief if you underperform and a team can release you if you over perform that contract they should fairly re compensate you for that i believe that skip coach bela check from the old school he believed once a player starts talking about retirement will mentally they're retired and coach bela check doesn't like to be called or left holding the bag he normally gets the drop on player he normally moves on from them before they're able to move on from him and when when gronk put this series of emotion well i don't know they ask him after like i don't know about you know my body talking about family oh about retiring so that put a series of the chain of events in motion in coach bela checks mind well i need you know you're not gonna tell me how you get anything or you i can move you believe this is a ploy on on gronk spar to get a contract extension but it's also he's pushing back scale he's upset that this all came to a head coach bela check took away some of the the privileges of the trainer alec who worked with tom brady also now works regarding this darty the series of events that led us to where we are right now all that started with that and then obviously the jimmy garoppolo so forth the soul but i'm shot skip that we're having this conversation two weeks before training camp about grunk potentially still being on the trading block i'm stunned by this and i also believe that this trade is still on the front burner not on the back burner but on the front and i'm going to remind you about a month ago there was a report up in new england which was shot down by the patriots pr staff but it said that there were offers on the table for gronkowski from the titans and the forty niners teams with connections dibella check out this link and that when tom brady got wind of those offers on the front burner he went to mr craft and he threatened to retire if bill belichick was allowed to trade rob gronkowski now again that was shot down completely by the pr staff but i believe there are some if not a whole lot of truth to that in here we go again we have ballot check versus brady and ultimately versus craft threat and once again we know what happened at the trade deadline mr craft intervene for the first time ever put down he did and he slapped bill bill check on the wrist and said nope i'm sorry i'm making this football decision this time you will trade jimmy g you will not go forward with jimmy g next year as your jimmy garoppolo is you're starting quarterback in place of tom brady you will not force tom brady into the sunset and out the back door and brady won that round right and it feels like brady is being threatened again with this trade and so now we got the power struggle between vela check and bob kraft who's going to win this one well it sounds like he he lost the.
