"And i can't imagine there are many season-long teams out. There excited the play. The new york giants skill position players championship game against the baltimore ravens. What about the ravens on the other side all of a sudden they're starting to put up a bunch of points. Yeah unfortunately they're run game. Lamar jackson Jk dobbins and gus edwards had killed you for months but now they're looking like the two thousand nineteen version of the baltimore ravens. Lamar jackson all of a sudden is right back to the top of the qb weeks ago. I was telling you how the guy wasn't even close to justifying the pick that he went with if you made it to this point with lamar jackson. He's putting up. Big numbers got Jk the mark ingram was a healthy scratch. They have given that backfield to jk. Dobbins gus edwards. Dobbins is an rb to gus. Edwards is a flex option in this game. Hollywood brown all of a sudden six for ninety eight back on the wide receiver three radar and mark. Andrews is a tight end that you must play five for sixty six touchdown last week against the jacksonville jaguars. So this raven offense right. Now is looking like the raven offense that we analyzed in august. When we were telling people you know. I like jk dobbins in the middle rounds mark. Ingram is a top three tight end option. You should be drafting Marquees brown is one of my favorite targets. It didn't work that way. All through the month of november we got to december and they seem to have figured something out. Unfortunately you might not have made it to this point by drafting those guys but now those guys are helping you in your fantasy playoffs. If maybe you pick somebody up. You swung trade. All kinds of situations could be happening but right now the baltimore ravens are helping you in a big way. Pretty unbelievable that the ravens are like the anti steelers. They're starting to get hot now feelers. They're currently out of the playoff one. They're not in right now so the ravens goes without saying they. They have to be full steam ahead. They have to win games right now. Okay so.

"Steelers wait so all right so the ravens the ravens have banned the big story and not just regular football but fantasy football as well and we will talk later in about half an hour about Lamar Jackson and just what you can use this season too how you can diagnose him as a fantasy player next year we'll get into that later in the show again three one two three three two three seven seven six DOT marking entries there all the key players for the ravens are not going to be playing mark Ingram mark marquees brown mark Andrews not expected to suit up for the ravens so again if you're using any of those ravens players that's probably not the best idea Robert Griffin the third will be under center for the ravens and Gus Edwards expected to tote the rock for the ravens in the backfield they the one thing that the rate is actually can achieve now I don't think this is something that they're going to be an heavy pursuit of what they can set the single season rushing record they can break the marks set by the nineteen seventy eight patriots without I just ninety three rushing yards now they may accumulate that total just in a normal game so but they I doubt they will be going out of their way to achieve that but it seems like something that that we as in certainly within reach so if you're looking at a possible daily fantasy play Robert Griffin the third who is extremely cheap might be a worthwhile gamble on some your cards and Gus Edwards looks like a decent play as well against the Steelers now the Steelers the Steelers are playing for their playoff lives they do need a little bit help they're going to need to win and they do need the Titans to lose so that's a tough one for them to work out but you never know what's going to happen the ravens again with all their key players on the bench not a surprise that still it would be expected I think that from my multi most folks the Steelers will take care of business any game that they must win but it is a rivalry game and you could see that the ravens would take a little bit of pleasure in keeping one of their fiercest rivals out of the playoffs so even though the back of the playing I think you're going to get a solid effort from the ravens from the back of the very least but it seems like the Steelers are in good position here to take advantage of a bunch of backups in the game for the ravens.

"This is not a guy who's going to just carry the load of and be like well. The Baltimore Ravens run the ball so much. We're going to give him the all the time I would would rather than the timeshare for the saints then for the Ravens Look. I know the Ravens want to run a lot but you know the touchdowns aren't going to be there for the ravens like they weren't for the saints. Most people were disappointed with Mark Ingram last year he had some good Games had some bad games. I think right now marking going at the back of the third round that is way too high. You've still got Gus Edwards on that team what it Gus Edwards do last year. Once Lamar Jackson took took over US A. B.. He was a he was on a sixteen game. Pace of fifteen hundred rushing yards not just going to be like all right. We'll Merkin Ramseyer. sit down these like good running. The Guy Making the decisions talks like that. I want and on that organization yes so I mean to me. I just think is like sure. That's whatever you said. It's be so I mean to me. It's the same situation with the same players behind him. I think we'll be disappointed. In the draft capital. I like I like earnings. Bendix is weird. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I'm not around the right Mark Ingram fan circles but it's shocking to me. He's going where he's going because I haven't. I heard people excited about. This is a team football at time but nobody's like Tuten like the ceiling for Mark Ingram. Everybody's like yeah. He's not that high right I. I don't know why he's backing justice. Hill a lot of people like justice. Here's the thing that worries me a bit about Mark Ingram said for Derek running backs who will also catch the ball so you're talking about east sharing time with Gus Edwards and yes to his family justice ills a good running back. Who's going to catch the ball is going to be used as a pass catcher erase?.

"Well, guess what? When you're doing that nine ten times on these systems. They had a drive that was I think it was sixteen plays it covered like nine minutes and it went like forty seven yards. It's like that's an every single snap is Lamar with that ball, and Gus Edwards gut, and he's pulling it out or his hand and up and guess what? They're a fumble it and they four times because that's a tough offense to run when you've got guys like Bosa and Melvin Ingram bearing down on. You've got to make that decision hell of a lot quicker than you do in college. And that's how that ball squirts out. I think they fumbled it four times and lost two of them. And Lamar Jackson was taking some shots. You know? Like as it was going along. And that's everything to me. If I if you're gonna try that kind of ball in the NFL, you're going to have a QB who just has that. I don't think it's intuition. But just has the instinct get down a split second before I take the smack and then other guys just never figure that out. And then there are three. Yeah. They're wildly taken. There. You have to be able to deflect contact and Lamar, you know, he's not he's not a big guy. But he's not a small guy either. I mean, I think he's he's plenty big enough. But man when you're running like that because you know, when you're running upright louder though, he's airy slight he's tall. But anyway, I liked that call I'll just round it out with this one Carson Wentz. I think Carson right one is is in some tough spot that the guy who has been his backup. Clearly, it escaped it escape jest. Hands in the stands or on social media. It exceeded it exceeded just local media Collins worth on national TV before the end of the first game with Nick foles, Wisconsin. Like, they just seem like they're running the offense a little bit better under foles and that word got out. And it's clear that the coaches in Philadelphia, we're saying that by January. Yeah, we get it. Carson Wentz is the more talented guy. But he fulls really just gets what we are trying to do here a little bit better. He has got so much pressure on him and the idea while you, but he's so talented. All right. Not everybody rises to it. I don't know of Carson Wentz. Will maybe he's that. It will stay healthy. Yeah. Another thing too that I mean, that's a legitimate other up in college. You know, lost a year in college lost extra games in college. Now, he's been injured every year and in in his pro career at least he's in Philadelphia. So very understanding they'll give him a break there. Yeah. I remember your your issue. Remember you were talking about how? They were booing him after he was picked. You're like what's wrong with you people? He's your quarterback, you don't boo him. Now. It's not like they can return them. Like, you know, what are fans don't like him. Let's let's give them back. No, you need to build confidence for this guy that just Bryce Harper in his first game in Philadelphia. Does that mean the tail wags the dog? They don't like that though when you mentioned like that was weird and out of bounds. Philadelphia sports fans. Like what everybody. All right. Well, there are a lot of incidents. You know? I don't know what you want me to tell you that. That's you then tell people to stop. I never did that. All right. But I think the reputation is kind of we get kind of earned it. Yeah. Anyway. All right enough about that good stuff overall. Thanks very much for maybe to be back for us as always Matt money Smith next time. Shame the devil. If handsome Hank is isn't seeded. Where is he? He's in China right now spreading the good word about pro football. What a joy, I know. Imagine him walking around China. He's six giant sick. If it will start and take photos with them. Oh my goodness. Yeah. Yeah. They will six four Whitey. They're going to around China come on. They're going gonna like me. Yeah. I'm here. To celebrate..

"Left Jackson. Tuck and run. He's got the first across the thirty lowers the shoulder and cats extra yard too long, the perimeter Jalil guy was there to greet him. He carried him for three more yards. And it's a gain of thirteen. This is where he is so dangerous everyone talks about the read option, which is a huge part of this offense. But you get in passing situations, and you better have a spy or someone paying attention. Because if he doesn't like what he sees the field. He's an he's those lakes take off. He's not sliding no one's gonna finish Ron Tony. He led the NFL in third down rushing. Not let all quarterbacks led the NFL in rushing yards on third down this season. I down four Baltimore from thirty nine play action. Jackson throws nobody home. He threw it into a crowd Willie Snead. The intended receiver with three defenders in the area. It's incomplete go downstairs check it with Ben Lieber on the sidelines. Ben. Yeah. Tony keeps talking about is. Puzzling. For Baltimore the approach they're taking in the run game with L A, not having a single true inside linebacker in playing seven defensive backs. They're not really run the ball downhill allow the runs our perimeter runs its at zone read. And then here on first down there electing to spread out their offense and try to throw the football with the running quarterback. I think they gotta get back to rain power football right in the interior in the teeth of this chargers defense. Yeah. No doubt. They're going against the grain right now. Morning. Morning works playcalling. Here's a running call up the middle. And there's nothing there. Gus Edwards behind the line of scrimmage. Darius Filon came firing through for L A, and it's a loss of a couple then they tried to run downhill here. It's the power game. And. File on just does a great job of replacing the pulling guard, and he does not he gets so much penetration. They can't block back on them. And he's in the back field before anything can get started. So that loss of one for Gus Edwards. He had one carry during the regular.

"But what I see the up, and Cleveland's what I've seen that game here in Cleveland, and Baltimore the way they played up there at which we had down here in south, Florida. Hey, thanks for the call happy new year. Appreciate it. Let's get to Mark in Baltimore. Hello, mark. Welcome to the Jim Rome show. Happy new year to you. All right. I wanted to talk about how far that you real-. You realistically think that Baltimore can make in the playoff with the current formula. They have with Lamar Jackson and Gus Edwards and. They can they can win the AFC. They can win it and go to the Super Bowl, and the reason they can win it is because they have an excellent defense. And do I think a rookie quarterback playing away? Lamar jackson. Can do it. Not really. But but and I know I'm contradicting myself he's eventually going to have to make some throws to win games. And I'm not sure that he can do it. Although he has gotten better and better his athleticism and his running ability if he can stay healthy. But I go back to the defense Mark that defense who else in the AFC the chiefs defense, we know not very good. We know Andy Reid is not good in the postseason other than that is in everyone fairly equal. I'm sorry. Go ahead. Happy new year. I'm sorry to I'm sorry. You didn't hear what I said. It's all good. Mark have a good one. Again. I I asked if you look at the AFC. Kansas city. Seattle almost. I mean, look at what Seattle did right beat them. Chargers beat them. Do they not ram speed? And what's the one thing? You can do against Kansas City. You can move the ball up and down the field. If you had the right game plan, you can take and keep the ball away from Patrick Mahomes. What's the other thing that came city has going against them? Andy Reid in this playoff failures. She's fans know that better than anyone eagles fans know that. Kansas City's got the most to prove of any team in the playoffs this year. And yes, I understand. It's Patrick Mahomes. I try at the playoffs, but he's also the MVP not officially he's going to be the MVP. All right. He's going to be the MVP of the National Football League. But we've never seen him play in the postseason, right? I don't know how a guy's gonna react with that type of pressure. He hasn't really had a bad game this year. Does he do for a bad game? What happens if it comes in the playoffs? And that defense can't bail them out. You gotta keep that in there. Love this is the no mellow zone. Get out of here Anthony in San with that crazy mellow talk. The last time mellow was good was when he was a nugget. Well, that's a little unfair Ken in San Antonio. I assume essays San Antonio. But he was pretty good with the next for awhile. But that can do anything couldn't win my issue with mellow. I hate to end the show on a negative note. It's New Year's everybody's in a good mood. I hate to do it. He doesn't make anybody around a better. You don't win with Carmelo Anthony. When he's your best player. You don't win with Carmelo Anthony at this stage in his career. He wasn't the best player in. Okay. See didn't work out. Not the best player in Houston. Didn't work out. I love Robert does Mattie coming in getting the exercise today.

"I'm pumping the brakes on Baker for weeks seventeen matches. He's playing Baltimore in Baltimore. Lou. Is it all to more and Baltimore cares? Two Baltimore needs the win Baltimore needs. If Baltimore wins. They're they're locked up there. Good to go because Pittsburgh can only get in. I believe if Baltimore loses an Pittsburgh win so much to the chagrin of many fantasy owners Baltimore just showed what they can do the quarterback against Philip rivers. Right brooks. Oh, come on feel like hashtag. Right. Brooks is going to go through entire show. Once we get you a certain section. Oh, okay. The duds goes that the yeah. Yeah. All right. I'll jump in here. My pump the brakes. This was also a little bit dangerous because the production has been there for running back. Gus Edwards from the Baltimore Ravens. But we are in the fifth consecutive week of his his naps dropping down to thirty seven percent. I get it the no he was fine. If you started in this past week because he started the game with a forty yard run. And then after that was used spare. Langley. He's they have they have no equity in him. And this is not necessarily a Kenneth Dixon support over here. I'm not saying that the complete change is happening with Kenneth Kenneth Dixon. But you have time Montgomery there as well. It's just and it was a very positive game script for Gus Edwards. They could have just ran him. And ran him got him back to the twenty total Kerry Mark, but they did not. So I have my concerns for Gus Edwards moving forward. I mean, you have to look at that backfield as more than a two or three man rotation because of because March Jackson's apart right who so yes, interesting. Yeah. I I'll say this because I believe I love Gus Edwards. I'm not worrying I like we disagree on this on this pump. But that's why there's three voices here. My pump the brakes this week is is painful to my yard to do this on possibly the last game of. His career am I am a monster. But I don't wanna play Larry FitzGerald, Larry FitzGerald, had what a lot of people interpret as we we still don't know if he's going to play another year or retire. But he had his final home game of the twenty eighteen season. It was a great game. He performed admirably through an oldest wide receiver in history to throw a touchdown. Yes. They're only gonna break down to David Johnson. And the reality is that was his last home game. He gets up for home games. We've seen that. I've talked a lot this year about the home road splits for Larry the crowd fuels the old body. But he wrote asking Mike, I think he's back. You do. Absolutely. I hope you are correct. And and that could be true. Certainly. I mean, everybody thought it was his last game last year at one point and the year before right? He will never retire like the band kiss, just reunion tour and reunion tour. That's fine with me. The kiss part, but the Larry part, but he's going on the road in Seattle. And unfortunately, he does not have Baker Mayfield. He has Josh Rosen. So I'm not I'm not rolling with Larry FitzGerald in Seattle in my championship week. All right. That was pump the brakes with the Reilly auto parts better parts, better prices every day. Breaking news. How is that possible? This just in. Oh, yeah. This just in. We do we do have a show on Monday. We do have a Monday show. How could we doubt Brooks? I mean Brooks look so disgusted with me. When I when I questioned it. But then I realized that was just that his own team. And I don't hold it against him. Hashtag right Brooks. So next week. Goodness next week for let's say on the schedule Monday and Thursday, correct. Okay. We gotta Monday and Thursday night. Usually it's Tuesday Thursday, but next week because of the holiday we're gonna put it out on wasn't New Year's day. So Monday footing nominations Thursday footy awards settled. Weekly rewind. That settled hashtag right Brooks. Right. Good to go. You'll be here. All right. Marcus mariota didn't finish the game on Saturday due to a stinger injury. Singers are going around. It's like they're containing Ecuador had us then you to stop letting scorpions on the field. That's not what a singer is Mike. This is why not this is why we turn to medical professionals me that was actually just a a bad joke..

"They win this game. They have a legitimately good shot at being the number one seat and having a buy week an auto win in round one. They lose this game. And they will most likely even though the record will be better than most of the league. They. They will not win the division. Meaning they won't have a home game. They will be on the road against other teams with worse record. So this is a this matchup matters a lot to the chargers. Which is why Keenan Allen will be out. There is a decoy. Yeah. Matters a lot to the ravens as well. And Lamar Jackson and company I'm excited for this game. Because of what's at stake for both of these teams. Lamar Jackson in fantasy of value has not finished blow. QB fifteen in any start thus far. We haven't at thirteen this week. He is only averaging one hundred hundred and forty six passing yards per start. And he's fumbling. At least once in every game, which is troubling. But look he does have a fairly high floor. Yeah. I think Lamar Jackson is is a safe play the running backs for Baltimore. No. That's a bigger question because Kenneth Dixon since returning. His snaps are increasing actually out snapped Gus Edwards. This. Past week. The game script was very positive though. Which allowed Gus Edwards to touch the ball. Basically every time he was he was in nineteen cares at a monster game less likely in this one. But if the game script gets out of control or flips to any kind of comeback, can you actually feel safe playing Gus Edwards this week? Safe. That's hard to say I haven't felt safe with gusts..

"I. The first thing you go to the first thing. Don't put it on this cake football. No, no, no. Talk to say you as a media per. With the rest of them there. Yacking? House or yappy jacket a tucked into this mess, and I talked about this scribes lows. Lows expert, Dan, I'm watching the ravens game. You know, they get the half. Halftime and all the all the Fers or. You know, the the ravens, you know, they were they need to get back to what they do best. And they need to run the football the second half. You know, they didn't do that enough in the first half. Comical. Just jumping another stat here yesterday. They they had seventy four plays on offense. But ravens did. And the buccaneers had forty seven plays on offense. Again, mathematics is not enough strong in a fabulous. But that's a lot of plays in in the morning here. We're the office and defensive coaches has come in till noon because they're only going to great forty seven. That had to be six o'clock in the morning to get the seventy four. And look at each other a little different flash sporting on whose beauty specially especially in the fourth quarter. You could you know, they were in total command and had had warned the opponent down. And and it was it was just just a matter of the. The seconds ticking off the clock is the ravens is Hank Schram would say matriculating the ball dog. And there's something about finding guys or guys stepping into roles as the season progresses. So we know the markets the moves into the starting role when Joe flacco goes down and Lamar's played really good football running and throwing the football. But the running back Gus Edwards. He's a guy that was undrafted and hadn't really played a whole lot. And all of a sudden, here's a guy that's getting a hundred yard games in powering up the middle. So don't love me. And I love the power football stuff. So I made I'm not with the rest of the guys try to let me in with ground and pound. I'm all about his feelings are a little bit hard. It was a. We're having breakfast with Roman yesterday before the game no report or moving over to the stadium. And and we were talking about ocean breath, or, you know, get into a game in sitting the press box for damn. Damn over the phone. You'll get gentlemen, it's time crying somebody which meant we're going to give put the ball of the ground and pound it down to throat, and I mentioned that the Greek Roman and in great realm came up with another great of word, and he said, but before you playing the like vote, did you have to tend to ride it? So what do you mean by that? You said when you just gotta keep token, Adam and poking and poking out of and you're getting a one yard gain. You're getting a two yard gain. And then then pretty soon it to four yard that's tend to rising preparing for the onslaught that the ravens put on the buccaneers in the fourth club of that game yesterday. Tenderizer? A lot of your games. Right. Because you know, the first half of the game here this season. You have some good runs in there. But then you would just pound it in the second half, which I give a lot of credit to you and coach Herbert as well with being right in the fourth quarter of games in seasons. But that's that's the recipe. You guys sat in pretty much everyone you had this year where pound that ball throughout the game in the fourth quarter. You see that difference? So does Jack said the runs that were two or three yards become seven and eight yards. And the ravens do seven plus minutes and take at the end then had to get the ball back. It's not a bad way. As Jack said, it's a beautiful thing. Wow. Let's get this document with with IRA here and the circle back. The w k. Kick. Not going to give me. As I said there there may be people in that room downstairs, when you have press conferences on Mondays that may say the things that you're saying, but you will not get me to go and cosign with most of that. Because nothing better than a great running game. Two pound that football and control that clock. Because what's the best best way to play defense? Have your defense on the sideline..
"gus edwards" Discussed on The MMQB: 10 Things
"That's the philosophical conversation is how long can we get by on this formula this year? There's no conversation about this being the the lifetime formula with Jack. Sohn he'll get hurt. And there's no quarterback in history who's made a career being so run oriented Cam Newton's closest thing and he's a really good pocket passer a lot of times. So it's a conversation of does this work for this year. Well, I mean, look this was. They almost had that game. One in Kansas City last week and the other four games played here. They controlled the ball for thirty eight minutes. Thirty four minutes almost forty minutes thirty seven today. So it's a nice compliment with what they have defensively here. And I just wanna say. I really enjoy Gus Edwards because I this'll sound somewhat insulting. But he's he's always like running back on autopilot. He just they hand the ball. And he just run straightforward. Like, let's say want. It's when the signs are winning. They want a guy that's going to run straightforward, right? The design calls for it's a robot of a running back, and he's two hundred forty pounds. So he's tough to tough to bring down a little bit too. So he's a he's doing some nice work. This is this is fun to watch at this point. And the lines playing better too. There was not a road drive. I've loved their offense of lying this season. But mostly for its past protection. It was not a road. Grading offense of line in the running game with designs. They have with Jackson and the structure of the play. And they do all this jet. Sweep stuff. I actually sent a really rude. Text one of their coaches saying how much I hate watching their film Baltimore now because it's just so hard to sort out the jet sweep and the ghost and all these moving receivers in the. Running game. What that's done is made the offense of lines job easier. Creates different angles for their blocks. And it makes the defense the defenders stand still longer. And so you hitting stationary targets more than moving targets. So better offense of line from the ravens, it's fun to watch this thing right now, I really eager to see how long it goes on how long it can go and they're going to go down swinging with the run game. They're not going down Jackson's arm it. It'll be interesting. I mean, look you get to January if they get to January, obviously have some some games to win left. Once you get to January the thought that you are going to. Basic control the game flow and play with the lead or or not fall behind significantly in four games against quality. Opponents. I I don't know. That's that's a that's a tough that stuff. They have the defense possibly do that. But we'll see take one game at a time. It's a good cliche. End on for this one the game. I was most excited about today colts always the colts. Just I mean, they are sending on both sides of the ball. The the one the one thing I'll note on this game is the Cowboys were without Zack Martin Connor Williams filling in for him, and you could tell there is a fourth and goal early on where where the Cowboys sort of stacked everyone on the right side of the line that they put a bunch of extra blockers over there, and they tried to do little misdirection and run to left side. And it was snuffed out the the colts read it stopped it. And that was it. Cowboys didn't have a great scoring chance after that. And this ends up being. Win for the colts. Who just I mean, they control this game. Both sides of the ball. Mattie. Reflector D coordinator retort about him on the podcast on Thursday going in. I think he deserves assistant coach of the year considerations. I think it's head coach Frank Reich deserves coach of the year consideration that colts defense. I cannot believe we're saying this at this point the they're just shut out a playoff bound likely playoff-bound team team. They're not overly familiar with would because even from probably he probably had them. Really? Well, scout about these players have not seen the Cowboys before themselves haven't faced in here. They go in and dominate them. And Indianapolis is building. That's that's a big deal these young defensive guys the colts, look so well coached every single week. It's simple scheme that they run..

And that's that's again trademark of a good team is when you have a situation in the backfield or among the receivers where one of your top guys are down an offense keeps rolling. I mean. Now for the ravens it's twice over. You've had a situation a QB one with wackos hip, and obviously they law. Lost their running back for the year. And they kept the train move in with Gus Edwards who came out of virtually nowhere. But he's keeping he's holding down. The fort best drive of the day. So far for the New York Giants here opening up in the second half as they've got a first and ten inside the titans thirty yard line seven nothing game. Tennessee leads this one. We'll check in on that. And Aaron Rodgers back on the field as well. Coming up next..

"But to talk about Lamar he's he's revolutionize the offense. They went from a struggling rushing game where they weren't getting anything. Flacco is throwing fifty times a game. Alex Collins has been struggling in the trenches the run game hasn't done. Well, and fantasy owners specifically were furious after he had such an incredible year one and they're expecting that again. So I caught a lot of heat on on social media for that specifically, but he's revolutionize I run game. You know, he put over one hundred yards in his first game Gus Edwards put over one hundred yards in his first game. So they both went over one hundred yards against Bengals. The next week Gus Edwards notched another hundred yard game. All of a sudden they have their capable of of getting yards on the ground, which they were just incapable of doing with flacco on the field. So this has been the biggest change in revolution. To the to the ravens offense. And that's what Lamar brings. He can throw. It us capable throwing. I know everybody else. Complains whether he can or whether you can't. But when he makes mistakes, it's okay because he's a rookie and we've seen Joe make the same stakes that Lamar will make but he's been in the league for ten eleven years now. And that's where the fans of started to really turn into Lamar fans, and and getting compassi the debate and start transitioning to the Lamar Jackson side of things because flacco makes these these own headed plays when he throws those goal line interceptions. Like it occurred against the Browns when Heathrow to Nick boil forcing a pass all of a sudden, you know, it's okay. When Lamar would do that. It's growing pains rookies learned through their mistakes. But Joe's been in the league for decade, it you just can't keep watching right? More fans. Can't at watching it. So that's been the biggest chance. So. Do you feel like there's a consensus amongst fans? They're ready for Lamar Jackson's era to begin. I would agree with that. Yes. They see me. They it's about seventy thirty seventy five twenty five, you know. But everybody's still respects Joe. And in its whole thing of you can like both of them. Everybody thinks that you can only like one or the other. And I think both are very well beloved already everybody so excited for the Lamar Jackson era. Some people don't wanna let Joe flacco go quite yet. Because you won them a Super Bowl. He went to the playoffs five straight years when he was starting. But in the end everybody does seem to go for Lamar Jackson starting now as opposed to next year. So I just before an ingenious gotta do this. Because I know how our readers are in our listeners. Are they will light me up like a Christmas tree in Times Square? If I don't clarify this. I was mistaken. I've thought Jackson went to high school in Georgia have crossed up with someone else. He actually went to high school in Florida. So let me be clear, I got my information wrong. There is that was completely off. Basically, the only I guess we have Lamar Jackson this evening coached by Bobby portray. No in college, which we have that time with Patrizia that we don't wanna talk about. This is this is real rough like. The backpack the first part, and then you Lincoln to Bobby Bobby procuring up on social media the way now. Didn't call my life. I didn't call it. Go ahead. Go ahead. That's Wayne this and having to talk about how this falcons offensive line will hold up against this wave and. Defensive front. I think that we're all well at least two us will be singing sad Sarah McLaughlin songs by the end of this on. It's gonna be great to be great. I was gonna call you out on it. But I was like man he's got it right in front of him. Probably. I don't wanna say because I thought he I thought he was in Florida, but I wasn't certain. And so I feel like I don't wanna give burned on the first time. I hop on this on the host incorrectly. So all right. All right. I just need you know, what the fixes here. It's a very simple when I need alcohol. That's it. So I'm going to get a drink after this and figure out how the hell edit all this. Relieve relieve it at all, you know, that's that's always my solution. I look at the end of this. Well, just publish it. As is. So..
Will Lamar Jackson or Joe Flacco Start as Ravens QB?
"Jackson. Joe flacco. What do you do? Joe? Flacco has been terrible. Lamar Jackson is the future. But one game. We ran around a lot. That didn't seem very professional. Then the second game he didn't run around that much and they want against what do you do? They start him in Atlanta. And you win that game. And you keep starting I think flacco played his last game in Baltimore. I really do. And that and that, you know, if John Harbaugh's job is in fact on the line item on my show two weeks ago. He said he didn't feel that in the building. I think he would you know, be wise to keep writing Lamar Jackson here. And they've done a great job of completely retooling their playbook and making this aid. Lamar Jackson offense on the spot navy really had Alex Collins active, and they've had Gus Edwards from Rutgers gusts and Lamar show is gonna come to Atlanta. And I think he's going to he's going to do very, well, they'll be seven and five and and no matter how Flaco hip feels. I just they just can't they just can't go back there. I think that they're just going to finish up these four games. Lamar Jackson and see how it rod.

"I'll more confidence in an. Upset if he's playing in that game. And not Joe flacco, you know, what? I mean. I I hope he gets a shot to be crazy. Looks for Kansas City. We all over them, and it could be him and Gus Edwards flashing for the ravens against Kansas. I'd be intrigued to see Jackson play at at the chiefs. But if it's flacco it just like, you know, you're gonna win right? It's sort of dog would be dollars. Joe flacco starting but it speaks to just the power of Lamar Jackson right now that he has become kind of must see television for NFL purposes him and Patrick Mahomes and other players obviously in that mix as well. But Jackson guy with two starts talking about being talked about in that vein, which is pretty neat there. The saints play on Thursday, and it's a little bit goofy to assess their their practice schedule because they began practice over the weekend. And you're not really paying attention to practice schedules. When you've got games, you're watching, but he was limited in practice on Tuesdays to find your he plays tomorrow to the saints and trae Kwan Smith to have any lean on whether and he'll be available for that gaming. It's the Cowboys. I do think he will be. If you look at what happened with the schedule. So after he was originally injured his foot that game. He was available to reporters wasn't like there was big injury news after the game. Remember, we just saw that. He was limited during the week being short week with thanksgiving in practice, but he was never seen in the locker room having his foot wrapped or in a boot or heavily taped. It this feels like maybe he wasn't quite ready for short weeks worth of play with the saints. Having postseason aspirations, obviously, you wanna be wise with with a with a receiver who so valuable. So now limited this week doesn't surprise me. I think if everything goes, well, there's no setbacks I fully expect him to play. Okay. That will be good news for the saints. I'll take this is early need him. They just continue to steamroll everybody in their way. But more for those that added trick once with after the ten catch game. Mike will be great news could be a potential maybe a flex player wide receiver three or four. Yeah. I would certainly say he's a flexible, I remember all thirty two teams are playing now. So the positions are as deep as. Been for what like six seven eight week season. You have a lot of options. But the last time we saw him he handled the forty one percent target share in arguably the best offense in the NFL. You certainly cannot ignore that. Of course, the week before you zero target. So it's certainly a little bit tricky. But you know, he has that massive upside, and I really like him as a player big fast downfield target in this saints often. So certainly Affleck's option less than a month and a half from right now trae Smith will turn twenty three time now for two fun. You tell us about twenty three in may. Well, then it is. I like me did with the numbers there.

"So even the guys who aren't benefiting individually are are taking note of the switch seventy six combine yard for John Brown. My Crabtree in two games. Lamar Jackson as the quarterback that being said crap did score against his old team yesterday. And Gus Edwards was awesome. Again, Twenty-three Russia's one hundred eighteen yards eleven point eight fantasy points, not massive. But Stefan, you Alex. Counts. Miss this game yesterday. Alex Collins just one last point on Lamar Jackson. I just want to say real quickly here field, which is that. I don't know if you caught this. But I thought I quote from John Harbaugh that said something about Joe flacco just saying like, well, we always initially thought it was going to be a three to four week injury. Which is the first time I've heard a timeline on him. And at like that was horrible buying himself. Some more time Lamar Jackson. They actually said when it very first happened. I think they're something that was floated around like that. But then there was like, hey, he's doing well. And so we'll see. Yeah. So so back to your Alex Collins comment field, obviously the foot injury. It was surprising. Because what happened was he was limited earlier in the week turns in a full practice, fry this usually think okay guys trending upward and then supposedly has a game workout and they make the decision not to plan. Now, we don't know exactly what happened during that period of time. But there's no doubt that Gus Edwards is certainly beneficiary with him out and it's questionable. Whether he might even still be the beneficiary of Lamar Jackson quarterback. If it went Alex Collins returns, if that happens this week, we don't yet know we will see what happens next for the ravens who are now as Matthew said right back in that number two wildcard spot in the AFC. Let's move along to the Sunday night game the Packers and the Vikings backers fall short twenty four to seventeen Aaron Jones was good again. What a surprise. They are found the end zone eighteen point three fantasy points. Devante Adams went five or six and nine with a touchdown. The way he catches the buffet have been to that route that he put on bureaus Aaron Rodgers just missed them in a very uncharacteristic day five for sixty nine with touchdown there. But I think the question is probably this Aaron Rodgers where we at with Aaron Rodgers right now if you are starting him are you feeling confident about doing so every single week going forward. The Packers have great final stretch of the season schedule. Matthew is the key one the rest of the way, of course. And course is I guess I'll tell you why. Because the schedule that you just said look so did did he have a great game this one. No we did. And under twelve fantasy points on the road at Minnesota. I think though somewhat to be expected, you know, he has traditionally struggled against Mike Zimmer defense, certainly when the game is in Minnesota head Demonte atoms wide open, just miss it. That's throw that normally nine times out of ten ninety nine times out of a hundred Aaron Rodgers hits. So and I think if he does like I think the narrative around him in this game changes a little bit here..

"At that matchup if you can get there that you're thinking you could win if you have a week sixteen so stunned might surprise you. But I thought he did well engine Peterson can't touchdowns in that game. Yeah. He did. Good. Yeah. I mean, all helium fifty one rushing granted. But two touchdowns gave him seventeen fantasy points which could have helped your team win. Absolutely. And I think we need to talk about this newcomer Gus Edwards running back the ravens undrafted layer. Yeah. He had seventeen carries in that new read option offense with the with the ravens him and Lamar Jackson. We gotta talk about Marge axel bit in the show, but running back wise Gusaid where it's seventeen carries one hundred fifteen touchdown. And you know, what the raven Keefe to that is on the first drive of the game. Lamar Jackson didn't throw a pass and a twenty seven Tim total Edwards did seventeen. So yes, they were two yards apart each touch but touchdown for Edwards. Yeah. In you know, what this offense? The ravens offense, Alex Collins buck Allen, those aren't guys that are so good that Gus over can't still some time. And I think yesterday he proved that he could be used as a weapon he's gotta keep your eye on. So a big game for him as well. So do you wanna do another running back? Or would you go? Let's go. Let's go out receiver. I'll let you go. I I know there's a lot of good receivers yesterday. A lot of big games. I'll go first I'll talk about it because he was another that I had a really strong opinion on doing. Well, this week that was t y Hilton T Y Hilton. I don't know what it is about the titans, but he seems to own them. Andrew luck. Actually, he's now ten Inoguchi titans in his career, but TY he'll always shows up against the titans thirty six fancy poise. He had nine catches one hundred fifty five yards two touchdowns. Dory. Jackson just has his handful has it hands full with this guy. I mean in a door Jackson is a phenomenal sprinter athlete and TY bows. By all the time. There's just sometimes guy has the other guys number. He really does he really has his number. So for me to why Hilton? I mean, he seems to have these games every once in a while. This was the first game this year that he had over. Eighteen fantasy points. But he doesn't in a big way with thirty six. So if you stuck with them, you were warded, although he had some games where in the before that made you think maybe I shouldn't play him. So. You know, unfortunately, some people out there probably didn't start them, which is sad..

"He's been practicing. Really? Well, when those young guys start practicing well for weeks after weeks, we want to get them out there. Here did great on special teams. There's six hundred thirty thousand reasons why this was coming. We talked about it in the offseason. That's how much money they Alice cons making this season. The loyalty built into his contract meant that. He could be supplanted at any time for any reason whatsoever. I'm not saying he's irrelevant. But. This is why you couldn't trust. A season of guaranteed volume from Alice Collins is because this team is more loyal to production than the money invested in the position. Yeah. I mean, this was what else Collins did last year when he broke out late and they've got the work. And this is what harbor finished he said to give us that type of back is very important. He gives us that back. We probably didn't have earlier. Oh what? But here's the problem bodies calling. I don't mind you making star because he deserves it it'll be on the waiver show tomorrow. But this is still gonna be our BBC situation. He also said in the same quote that there's four Baxter. Give them different skills time. Montgomery had no touches we've got four different guys who have different styles. I think that's a plus for us that four the number four is not a plus for us the fantasy owners it's not a plus for Gus either. So key does he do it again. Maybe he looked if Joe flacco comes back next week. I will say. Pause. Yes. I would pause. I'm not starting Gus Edwards breaks during the same week. He's your rising star could be if if Joe flacco was back Joe flacco is not going be back. Lamar Jackson will be out there. And I think Gus Edwards will be an okay play. He's a seventy eight th percentile athlete in the weight adjusted speed which for running backs is one of the things I look at the most you got into it on the field. And he conned the pain as they say as Jason says, Mike, you've you're going in different direction here. Yeah, I'm going. My rising star is actually didn't have a ton of production. But it's Josh Adams running back for the Philadelphia Eagles. Here's why he is my rising star Corey Clement played on twenty seven and a half percent of the snaps Wendell Smallwood the perceived pass catching running back for the eagles played on seven point eight percent of the snaps. I do if I need to remind you the game script was very fair. Ver- of a pass catching running back. And it seems like okay we'll Josh Adams. We'll be scripted out except he played on fifty five percent of the snaps. That's nice. Look the game script was out of control. But Josh atas was still the primary running back. He only had seven carries. Because of of course, the game script, but a reminder of the past four weeks. He's running at a clip of six point six yards per carry. He's their best running back. He got six targets. Yeah. Yesterday. That's that's why this is okay. Josh Adams was moving from interesting rookie undrafted guy, climbing up the depth chart getting some time he looks like the best guy in the field to he was the man in a really terrible game script for him. And I think that Josh Adams can be flexed with confidence. Doug Peterson has eyeballs. This one of his greatest features. Yeah. He's not an idiot want. You all you have to do is watch Davis is over the last three or four weeks. This is a carry on Johnson circumstance exactly the same thing. Where you watch a player. He offers.
