"Are walk me through the way the running back position you think in this league is being evaluated right now. It just depends on it depends on that team, rich. It depends on the most important thing is for the players that you draft. The players that you acquire, whether you're talking about free agency or the draft, you have to have conviction on the players you're taking. And you have to have a clear vision for how you're going to utilize them. And so when we're together, again, you know, author Smith and the type of person he is and how he sees the game. And so we have a lot of smart people in this building. And when we sit down and go through it, we determine, okay, what's the vision for this player? Whoever it is, what's the vision? How are they going to be utilized and how are they going to fit into what we do? So that's why you have to go through everyone's draft board. Everybody's job for, you have 32 different graph boards because that team is going to take the best player for them. So when we discuss it, again, we don't put him in a running back box. We discuss them. No different than Drake. We didn't take Drake because he was the best available receiver. We took him because he was the best player for us and we had a clear vision of how we're going to use a much like Kyle Pitts a year ago. We're taking players who were not thinking about position. We're thinking about the impact they're going to have for us. And we have a clear vision in how we're going to utilize. Terry fontanel, general manager Atlanta Falcons here on the rich eisen show. Another way to help out a quarterback who's kind of new to the starting role as yours is in Desmond Ritter, get him a run game, get him protected, and again you use your second round choice on the offensive tackle Matthew bergeron out of Syracuse. But you also get him a tight end and you already have one of those and what a decision that was to take pits where you've taken him and you took a tight end top four and now you're taken a running back top 8 and a quarterback in the second round or you're given a shot here, is this walk me through your decision making on these being your tent pole guys and your expectation level here for the offense in year two for Desmond Ritter. Would it we do believe that you build a team front to back inside out. So you have to invest in the front. And that's always going to be the most important thing we are going to invest in the front. And so we're talking about players that we drafted in the top ten over the last three years, but we've also made major investments upfront when you talk about a couple of years ago. Extending our life cycle Jake Matthews and then extending Grady gear. Our defensive tackle a year ago and this year to be able to make Chris lynch from the high state garden league and to be able to extend Caleb and the investments we made with as we go through our defensive line with clay's Campbell, bud Dupree, David on yamada, bringing back Lorenzo Carter. So we believe that the most important thing is the front. We have to invest, whether it's draft capital, whether it's for a since, we need to invest because we believe the way you're in a really win game and have sustained success is establishing the line of we want to have tough violent physical front and we believe we believe in the identity that we have. And so we want to continue to add to that. But that being said, yes, when you can add offensive weapons that can help out because we believe in our team, we believe in Desmond because of the person he is, the leader he is, the way he works. We believe he's going to, he's going to get the most of his ability because of the person he is and the way he's going to work. And we believe in our team and it takes total team offensively defensively. You got to have balance. You have to be able to run the ball. You have to have playmakers. And you have to be able to rush the quarterback and take the ball away on defense and stop the run. So we believe we want to continue to make the total team better and that's going to help everyone. But what's Desmond river's expectation level then? What do you got for me for this fall? We want him to look my office actually faces are I can look right out my window and see the field and man whatever every time I turn around there's guys out there working and they're doing their best to get better and that's who that is and he's a worker and you look at he wasn't highly recruited coming out and all he did was once a Cincinnati and became one of the winningest quarterbacks in college football and no one will say that anything was given to him. He earned everything that he got and we expect the same with him here and he has that mindset. He's going to earn everything he gets and we love our team. We love the character and identity of our team that he sits right in there. So then let me ask you this this way then I mean you had so many options Arthur when he was on last month said, of course you guys talked about Lamar Jackson. You talk about everything and then you made your decision and then you kick the tires I'm sure on a ton of kids in this year's draft at the quarterback position had them in for visits and things of that nature. Why did you eventually land on Desmond Ritter as your guy? Yeah, it's about just what you said.

"Works. There's not a guy that's more comfortable in his own skin. I think he's a head coach than Mike vrabel. Maybe Mike mcdaniel. Yeah. So the other sort of tidbits that we teased running backs a little bit. And we had some thoughts on this after, I don't know. I'm vacillating, right? Because I think what we said on the last show and I agree with you with and you have a little bit more extra kind of good Intel from art Smith that I want to get to. I'll just reiterate, I think we're in a cover to league. I think that, you know, I've checked with a lot of coaches on how you beat this point and it is checked down. It's allowing running backs to soften up these zones, break it up so you can get the ball downfield. That's why I don't have a problem with bijan. I don't have a problem with Gibbs. I think that in this vacuum that we're in, you have to give teams an excuse or you have to give them a forgiveness, especially if there's an elite level prospect. But I really liked what I really like with art Smith told you about bijan too. Yeah, so there were some things like, you know, the day after the draft a couple days after the draft, I do, you know, some background work on what teams were thinking and kind of where they're at and one of the things when I was talking to falcons people about it and the discussion in their room was sort of, you know, where Arthur Smith has his vision for the offense and a big part of it and I thought this was so fascinating was Arthur connecting it to basketball. And he's a big fan of the 13 and 14 spurs and then of the current day warriors, right? And you know, the thing he likes about them is that they're positionless. And so they've got the flexibility to kind of create bad matchups against everybody. And part of the reason why is because they've got so many guys that are interchangeable. So they can move them around. And now you look at what they've built there with their first three first round picks. And I'm not normally a huge throw, throw everything at skill positions, guys, guy, but they do have like the offensive line mostly taken care of with Jake Matthews and Caleb mcgarry and Chris lidstrom and those guys, right? And so you look at what they've drafted the skill positions and it's Kyle Pitts and it's Drake London who are guys you can move around and now bijan Robinson who's as good a good enough receiver to line up in the slot. And so now if you're a defensive coach or a defensive player and you're looking at them at the huddle and they break the huddle and you don't know who's going where, that's a real problem, you know? And I think this even extends to like quarter old Patterson, one of the reasons why they really liked corridor all Patterson and why they've paid Corey Ralph Patterson is because he's another one of these guys who you can when you break the hollow, you don't know where the guy's going. And so I think it's sort of, it's like it's the idea of like looking at skill position players ambiguously and not as like in a box. Like this guy is just this. It's more how can we find guys who can do multiple things and threaten the defense in certain multiple ways. And I think Gibbs is the same thing. You know what I mean? Like Gibbs is a passing game weapon. Gibbs is not just a running back. Gives us a passing game weapon. And so if you don't think the receiver class is great, right? Why not take a running back first? And I think we get so caught up in like, well, there's the longevity and you can find Isaiah Pacheco in the 7th round, all that's true. But if you have this guy who can be a queen on the chessboard for you, you know, where you can move them around like however you like, well, then that's a problem for everyone. And then you take it to the second contract, which is the big question, right? Let me ask you this, Conner. Do you know what other players make? So Derek Henry makes 12 million a year. Joe Mixon makes 12 million a year. Nick Chubb makes 12 million a year. Joe also makes 12 million a year. Hunter Henry, Corey Davis, it's like these guys, these other positions where it's like, they're, they're okay. Right? But if you give a guy a second contract at running back, you're getting a guy at that price who is top of the league at that position, and you're probably only giving him a couple of guaranteed years. So you're going to be out of that after a couple of years anyway. So I just look at it and I'm like, have we gone so far with the devaluing running backs thing that now all of a sudden there are value. Yeah. You know? And it's not that crazy to think you can keep a guy on the field for 6 years if you manage him properly, you know? Like part of the problem with Zeke alley was the cowboys ran him into the ground, you know? And the cowboys, he had so much volume his first three years in the league got so beat up that eventually he was, I mean like, but you look at what Zeke Elliott did for dak Prescott and how much he meant for dak Prescott as a quarterback, right? And then look at like what Todd Gurley did for Jared Goff in LA and like that's what saquon was supposed to be for Daniel Jones and now they're able to keep saquon healthy for a year and what did that mean for Daniel Jones? There are so many levels to this that I think people just ignore and just, I think it's sort of lazy to look at it and stamp it as yep, running back bad pick, you know? Like to me, it's like, can you get them to the second contract? Can he do more than just run the ball? And can he help you develop a young quarterback? I think all these things can be factors for you. You know, and I just, I think that I just don't think people are creative enough looking at that position, you know? And it's sort of like the same thing as with the golf ball lineback. There's like Micah Parsons, a lot of the criticism of Michael Parsons was the off ball linebacker thing. Is that really just what he is? Right. Or is he more than that? That's why he fell to 12 one of the reasons he fell to 12. No, he's more than that, you know? And so I think that there are these people, these guys coming into the league now because of how the play games being played at the lower levels that are sort of stamped in a position when they're really kind of positioned with. I think Parsons is that guy on defense. You know, and I think on offense, you're starting to see more running backs coming in with that sort of skill set because they have to have that sort of skill set to survive at lower levels of the game. Or the 2013 spurs reference was solid and so I just Googled the 2013 spurs and it's so funny because I just sort of got back into the NBA because I have a friend who's a big Knicks fan and I've never liked the NBA. I've never really been into it and I just found out that Tim Duncan is not in the NFL or the NBA anymore. Like on the podcast live, I just found out that Tim Duncan was your reaction to that. Let's just say, you know, I mean, I like Tim Duncan. He's not like and he's not like now the head coach of the spurs. I just thought he would always just be with the spurs. I'd be like Bill Russell, where Bill Russell became the coach of the Celtics when he retired. Yeah, I don't know. Yeah. God. And there's nothing, there's nothing after 2020 on his personal life. So again, Wikipedia. He would push pop, Greg pop if it's just inside the same way Bill Russell kind of like moved right in our back into retirement. That would have been perfect. That's what would make sense to me. I mean, the big fundamental. What better way for art Smith to build a team than around you? I wonder who is Tim Duncan as a Kyle Pitts. I don't know. Yeah. So last thing that I have here, I think rich eisen had the stat and it was somewhere in the 5th round I wanted to say that more quarterbacks had been taken through the 5th round of this draft already than the entirety of the year before definitely the most in the top one 50 ever. It was I think the most in the top one 50 ever. And I think to me, that is, that's the Brock pretty effect. That is. And you and I have talked about this. The value of volume passers, the value of experience, the value of these guys, they can get better. They all get a lot better. Here's the thing. If your max dug in or your holt nailers. Clayton tune, any of these guys,

"I'm going to change the order here because I'm so excited to get to bijan. And so yeah, I did want to step on you there. No, no, no. This is good. So we'll get to the QBs at the end. We'll close it out with the QBs because I do want to talk about the QB order in general and how we felt that went. But favorite pick of round one, it was bijan. And so here's where I'm going to give myself a little bit of credit. I had bijon going to the Lions at 18. I thought that I did think that the Lions were in the running back market. I thought bijan was going to fall because I thought that Atlanta maybe needed a little bit more. But as I started thinking about this last night, I thought, how cool and smart this is because here's what you're doing. You've already put a little bit of gas in the motor behind Desmond Ritter. And you're already saying you're our guy for next year. We didn't go get Lamar Jackson. We didn't trade up to number one. And what is going to make, this is going to help him realize his potential. You're going to have a killer running game. You have a pretty decent offensive line. You have Drake London and Kyle Pitts who were two of the better skilled position players in the league. And now you have Tyler Tyler algier and bijan Robinson who are both just jackhammer running backs. I think you're investing in line we've invested in too. Don't forget about it. Jake Matthews. They paid Caleb Gary, like Mikael mcgarry. They've invested pretty deeply in the line too. Yeah. And so I think what you're doing is outside of the fact that I love the pick because if I was still playing Madden, if I had more than 6 seconds of my day to pick up a video game controller and I totally would.

"'cause boy, I wanna write about poop on the Internet even more than I already do. Can it be a Richard meal watch, by the way? Do you know what I'm talking about? No. Do you know, well, this is like, all right, I'm gonna try to time my segue here to less than 30 seconds. Odell Beckham kept wearing a reshard meal watch during practice. Do you remember this right when he got to the browns? Oh, vaguely. And Richard meal watches are cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. That was at minimum a $100,000 watch. And so I watched a lot of YouTube videos about Richard meal watches, read a lot about Richard meal watches, and I'm just saying it's really interesting. I don't know if I would spend a $100,000 on it, even if I had a $100,000 to spend on it, but okay. That's an expensive watch. All right, all right. A lot of Formula One guys like Richard meal. So, moving on from watches and poop. I think the deal with this team is they are, they are really bad. The thing that kind of shocks me and we didn't want to deep dive the offensive line too much and we are going to perhaps talk about another team that did not address their offensive lines efficiently. But the falcons have tried to build this offensive line and it's just bad. I didn't even know if the individual parked or that bad. They just didn't play well last year. I wonder if maybe the second year in the system, you get a little bit of a bump here, and then you can get something of a run game going behind Cordero Patterson, of course, and then, I don't know, maybe they over achieve a little bit. You can't really project anyone in this league to be like a two or three win team because there's just not that much separation and you're a couple of bounces away from being a 5 or 6 win team, but man, it is really difficult to find reason for optimism outside of we have Kyle Pitts and we have AG Terrell and eventually we're going to have better players around them. Yeah, the falcons were the poster child kind of for you and I did that story in October of last year. Basically about how every team is running this version of the same offense and the offensive line coach is a really important, but there's only like 7 of them that know how to do it. And so Atlanta was one of those teams that had to just find a guy and kind of work on it backwards, right? And sort of do things in a different way. So we'll see what happens there, right? I think this was always going to take a little bit longer. And some of the pieces were a little disjointed. I think we all knew that Chris lindstrom would be great in this kind of in this kind of an offense. Jake Matthews, to me, when he was drafted in 2014, I liked him a lot more than other people did during, you know, I think he had a really bad PFF season, but I thought he actually played pretty well. That first year, but he's a different kind of tackle.

"That. That is in no way an exaggeration. Of your plant? Yes. Yes. What you've endured at the heavens of the Twitter smear. How you doing, Sean? What an episode. All right. We really did it, guys. What? We got clay guida. It's fighting Leonard arl Santos. I don't know how. Can't fight this ever before. Can I tell you, I like clay guida. I've always liked clay guida. And just like, I like clay guida, when Blake we don't belong to the UFC fighter. I mean, I just think he's I don't know. But it's not like he's terrible. It's not like he's, you know, lost it. He's just, you know, of advanced stage for. If you like clay, you should meet his brother, Jason. He's even more like. Well, clay has a business where you can go hunting with him and Chad Mendes. What are you hunting? I don't like any of this. All right, so also, Matt Brown is starting Brian barbare. This should be a good fight. Both. Scrap, Cheyenne buys. She's a girl that beat up her entire high school. There was like a bunch of bullies picket on her, so she went in and we had like a karate fight 6 girls and then she got suspended for that. Shooting, but hand to hand combat. So it was like Cobra Kai season two finale. Okay. It was, except one person. Alonzo Mehta field. My boy Alonso, which line up are we looking at? I don't even know what you're talking about. December, a fourth at the year. Oh, the Oliveira Poirier? No, no. No, no, no. The week before that. Okay, the Aldo card. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Alonso, I'm not saying any of these fights on the card. It's that MMA junkie. Okay, I think they're wrong again, bro, I'm not saying, first of all, the UFC fight the prelims is down to two fights. So okay, so I guarantee, trust me, Alonso's fighting, William knight, who's another like knockout artist, huge black dude, just fucking jacked. It's always Alonso. That should be a good fight. Mickey gall is fighting Alex Moreno. Mickey guy. He's back. I love it. Louis smoker, I like his wife's battle rapper. Really? He didn't have enough fighting in his life. And then Jake Matthews, who was like, let's see what he was like 17 years old from Australia. He's fighting Jeremiah wells. This is actually a good card. Jimmy crute is fighting John Mahal hill, jamahal hill is like, he's that guy's really good. Nickname is sweet dreams. And he just knocks people out most of them. He lost to Paul Craig, but sweet dreams. All right. And then finally, quick predictions, Oliveira versus Poirier, December 11th, who.

"It's how you react. Right now, I think I'm reacting, okay. So Caitlyn Vieira versus Misha Tate. Kaylyn beer is coming off she coming off. He beat Jana, katana. She beats cigar Eubanks. She lost. I read out danya by knockout, but that girl I think has better striking than Misha Tate, just make sure doesn't have a grinder. Kind of an old school, Randy couture types, he gets you down and just lays on you and pounds you, not that you can't do it. But doesn't seem to have that one punch really pop. And sajara Eubanks does, but Cesar's jar Eubanks tires out quickly. And Jana has not really looked that well in her last couple fights. She lost she had knocked out by irina Donna. She beat Kaitlyn Vieira. She beat Bubba Wallace. She lost to ask them lab, I knock out in round three. So I'm saying, I think that Misha Tate wins his fight. I do. I think Misha Tate is a different fighter right now, and I think that she's fresh. She wants it. She came to my comedy show. She laughed. She seems to be at a happier place. Doesn't have all the stress on her. And I think she's a different fighter. I do. Michael chiesa versus Shawn Brady. This fight, you know, I think that I've been buying into the Sean Brady hype, which how can you not? The guy looks like a fucking monster. But you look at the guys he's fought. He Jake Matthews by triangle. That's awesome. Jake Matthews is a strong, strong guy. Tough guy from Australia. He'd be Christian or aguilera, he'd be court McGee. He beat his male nerdy up. All those guys are good guys, okay? They're all they're solid. But let's look at Michael chies resume. Vincente Luke, he lost. He beat Neil Magny bad. He beat how I felt dose anos bad. He beat Diego Sanchez bad. He beat Carlos Condit by Kimura. He lost Anthony Pettis. That was three years ago, actually over three years ago. He lost to Kevin Lee. That was a weird stop. Remember that? And that was just I think that was like the weekend after I got married. And then he beat Daniel Darius. And I was there for that. I was a weird fight. That was a very weird fight. I wasn't there for that, but he I couldn't believe it he'd be Darius. You see, like, submitted him. So look at level of opposition, and I think he has to take it, because, you know, Sean Brady is coming up, he's looking great, but he's looking great against guys on that be your sea level. Kiesa has this been in there with fucking monsters and has always come on the top, but experience is a bitch. And I don't think yes is ready yet. To say, you know, all right, you know, and also he also sometimes like, yeah, I think he's gonna win. Joanne calderwood. That girl, by the way, I took a leg kick from her because that was my pile, trained me to come do his, he was like, hey, man, let's do, you know, we could training and then he just, he started to pretend he knew it was a real fight. He's like, you got way in tomorrow, and you got the press conference. I'm like, dude. Fucking tired. In Vegas, I got shows all night, I'm not really a fighter. This is getting weird at the same time. I love the guy. Anyway, so he said, one of my payments to him was getting kicked in the leg by Joanne calderwood..

Very opportunistic that the Patriots defense, and they were again tonight in the 25 to nothing win over the Atlanta Falcons, Sean's patriots postgame show with Jim Murray Joe Murray Greg beard of Boston sports journal Boston sports journal dot com. What else pop for you, defensively tonight? You know, there was guys making plays today in that front 7 that you normally haven't been hearing in recent weeks or through the season like God show getting in on the action. He gets his first sack of the year. What were some of the defensive standout plays for you tonight Greg or anything that might have been even different? Yeah, I just think that there's a whole group of guys on that side of the ball that seemed to be playing their best game of the season. Some guys who, for a while, it was like, you know, you know, are they too old, have they lost a step in the case of like Kyle van noy is God shall, you know, gonna get the system. He was pretty good. Carl Davis has done a pretty good job this whole year. Run defense he came up with a couple of big plays, you know, Kyle duggar. I mean, look, this is a guy who, for a long time, most of his career end of the season we're like, well, is he going to start making plays? He seems to be in the right position. He doesn't seem to have a whole lot of mental errors, but does he have a knack for the ball and making plays? And now we've seen in consecutive weeks, that he's making plays. So all of that stuff, and he shut down Kyle Pitts. They largely just left pits to Kyle duggar and he largely shut them down. I mean, you know, let's be honest. I mean, it's not like there was much other many other weapons for the Patriots to pay attention to. So they were able to zero in on him a bit without a guy like Calvin Ridley being out and you know, quarter old Patterson and so, but, you know, Kyle duggar's done a nice job. And so I think that, you know, they have a lot of guys sort of peeking at the right time and that's good news for this defense. I mean, as far as plays, you have the Davis, you know, him shoving back the center. I thought the paper was just in general and I thought this was gonna happen after watching some falcons film this week. They just dominated that line. And that line really stinks outside of Chris lindstrom. Jake Matthews the left tackle is okay. He's the falcons have always played him at left tackle. I've never thought he's a real left tackle. I thought he's more of a right tackle. But the other three guys in that line are just awful in the Patriots, took advantage of them.
"jake matthews" Discussed on Patriots Beat
"Yeah, so I think that it's a pretty big mismatch for the Patriots defensive front against the falcons offensive line. But at least the falcons offensive line has some individual players that are pretty talented, right? Like crystal lindstrom's a talented guy. Hennessy, there's centers a good talented dude. They have some guys on their line that at least you can sit there and say, okay, like, you know, those guys are talented. Jake Matthews have left tackle..

"But hey we got we'll get an actual game to talk about fantastic and we got an eagles game too and i'm excited because at the end i have homework assignment for yourself. I think i know what the homework aside is going to be. I i saw somebody should okay. Okay okay okay again. Last night. I told michael kiss. I didn't know if he told you go. Mike lesson told the no do have some game action to get prepared for. The eagles are getting ready for their week. One game they're going to be going to atlanta to falcons And that is gonna be on the twelve or twelve so becoming very very quickly. And i guess we could take a look at both offense and defense like what should the eagles be prepare for. We know offensively. They have cow pits. The hudson that's where it starts starts with. This dude is like legit unicorn like a man that is should not move that well. I had one catching decrease or a simple little like our out but you see him like a vadim people before he even catches the ball catches the ball. The flat turns upfield on a diamond is just like outraged. People like this is somebody that was running like up out routes against kansas city. A kentucky cornerback last year. Just blow and buy them like going up against jc horn who was a first round draft. Pick at corner at just mawson him on a back shoulder. Throw i of all the players ever studied for the draft. Kyle pitches like up their terms which is like pure joy to watch somebody that look i. I don't feel like doing this today. I'll just watch kyle pits. 'cause it's fought certainly anytime you feel like as an organization you could trade. Julio joe's because of the rookie you just drafted that is technically still a tighthead. But you know you can use like use a tremendous talent We expect look arthur smith because a lot of play action bat ride offense. It will be pretty comfortable form so get us a lot of play action. Calvin ridley is still extremely good as well. I i don't know if atlanta's that team in the nfc the comes out of nowhere. But i think there's potential for them to be a little bit better than people think. What about you on this interesting. I think how this is. The knicks eat expectations over the latter height around him. And like you said he's a unicorn. I like this. So i think he's going to exceed expectations. I think a worried that i did have was. Julio don't because we know that he was such a a huge contributor and now that he's gone was like a worry but like you said they do have calvary really. They still tie a caucuses on a key contributor season of so maybe they'll be okay without him but now they have the backup huby competition also going on. That's a little bit of an interesting scenario. My biggest question about it leads it. Why can't i can't really come to terms with how i feel about. Are they rebuilding. Or they retool. Like that's the thing i understand the decision you're sitting there. Ford you draft kyle. For all the reasons we talked what is year gore generational. Whatever you wanna say about him but then he turned around and traded. Julio jumps it's like if you're gonna move on from julio that's a step towards rebuilding right so then maybe you draft justin fields at four like it. Seems like they're trying to be. You know trying to do both right. Rebuild retool at the same time is not gonna work or not like big question. I don't think the the move they made are enough. I think it's gonna take years. Yeah julio jones. Getting rid of him. Brennan cow pits. Yep great but i feel like that's not enough. I can road Ryan was a phenomenal quarterback last year. So i don't have high expectations for him. Going into the season anna concern. Is there often as well. I mean they're offensive line his a work in progress. They've made a ton of investments in it looked to first round picks in nineteen third round. Pick their centerman hennessy. Twenty jake matthews. They're left tackle is good but he was drafted in two thousand fourteen in the first round. Like you know there's some age there does seem like they're like you said like it doesn't seem like what they added was enough to sort of make a run this year and matt ryan is certainly would say on the back of his career and look we. We all saw the tweets this weekend like everybody made up their mind at the next quarterback classes going to be bad. Allow maybe makor growl on monday night. Save that but that if the next quarterback classes bad and we just gotta class we had five guys in the first round. Why not draft one. I it's just. I'm always fascinated by organizational decisions terms of roster construction. And this one just leaves me sort of scratching my head too. And i think one of the biggest things that i was looking at county matt ryan is yes getting older but also nowadays. You have to be athletic. And i don't think he's athletic. Never really has been less like something. Where side how. How much can you really do like. Think about the contracts between the two quarterbacks in this game right i if your gnp's the defensive coordinator for leads we're gonna get you in a second. You don't know exactly what jalen hurts. Is going to be to give plate right. I mean he throws from the pocket maybe they roll them out. Maybe he scrambles. It's i've always asked offensive coordinators about this like high school defensive coordinator college offensive board as and that's the stuff that keeps them up at night because you might draw the perfect fads and then somebody like jalen hurts just breaks it all down and there's nothing you can do but throw the clipboard and you know quit. I don't know how. But matt ryan you know exactly where he's going to be right. You said like he's not a super athletic guy thirty six. He's going to be seven yards deep by the center looking to throw. You're not taken a linebacker or safety at sait. Okay we need you to watch number two. Because i'm afraid that he's going to scramble and do something on third six. No you're not going to do that. And so i think like you said you know what matt ryan going be. He's not sue breath logic. We have seen this trend in the modern. Nfl you need athleticism at that position. He's offering that and so it's it's a more one dimensional passing game than what the eagles exactly one thing that's also gonna be. Interesting is both teams a new coaching staff. So i was look. I was looking at the interview from nickel pharaonic outlets bryant knicks. Air yanni. He was talking about how they are competitive advantage. Lookie on both ends because won't know what to prepare for. There's a lack of tape. there is that lack. I think what sort of works phillies favor. Is you kind of know somewhat of what to expect from. Gnp's like i said you. We talked about to collapse off. Air that i think we're gonna talk about her it but he'll do different beds. And he's one of these coaches this preseason. That didn't hide like he showed like this. What we're gonna do so we're a practice. I don't care if people figure it out but the eagles like you said like new coordinators new head coach like people that you don't really have a ton of film and tendency work on and i think a lot of week one in the nfl is all about like you know the coaching staffs themselves. Because you don't have film you don't have stuff to break down your tendency information. You don't always gonna look like how good are the coaching staffs had stolen the stuff. They want to run week one during training camp. And sometimes that's just difference. What team is just better prepared for week. One and the uncertainty like talk with the college game but the brasco my beloved cornhuskers got yoged by illinois and we zero at scott frost. Their coaches like. We weren't ready for what they were going to do. Which was just play man. It's like man if you can't figure that out and have an answer for that then you're going to be in trouble You would think a college head coach would have an answer for cover one but apparently not all. Okay though i'm really okay with it. I'm fine on not having a mental breakdown over that. That's not why i'm jay. Go buy some spies bartlett's already than once shots. This show is partly about copen. Richelle offer the listeners ways to cope. Yes that's what we're here to yesterday the saints. Oh my gosh. I was going to need to prepare for blitzes. Not that's one thing that i know that jalen hurts needs to be prepared for coming for him. Yeah and the other pieces really good. At first of all. I would strongly recommend anybody. That's curious about gene peas. My friend chris or at coach vast on twitter. He has a couple of different podcasts..

"In dallas wiles. I've seen that happen. A lot in basketball teams are opening night. They get their rings in and go out there and get clobbered all right. That's always a possibility. But i i'm not. I'm not giving it a possibility. I give the cowboys zero chance of winning this get zero. I think they're ready. They're ready to beat the giants. They're ready to play the eagles on over the night but they're not ready for the defendant super bowl champions and tom brady. Coach said he a week. After they won the super bowl he was working out and posting getting ready for ring number eight so i don't think he's going to let them be complacent i think they're gonna come out excited about the season ready to run it back so i don't think dallas is ready. Attacks i snap snap are not series. Not game snap since he broke his ankle. We'll be against one of the best. Defense is tender league. obviously zack. Martin is now out so their office of unit. Hasn't even played one series together or one snap together in the preseason so they got a lot to work. Outlook is not gonna ruin their season. That's the silver lining. Their their schedule gets a lot easier after week to Obviously nfc east bad division And zack martin will be back. Thankfully for the cowboys. So is nothing to get down on. If you're a cowboys fan win. They lose this game. And i would even say if they play bay. Close if it's thirty. A warling twenty four nick like legit close game. I get it the cowboys players. They can't get excited insane moral victory publicly but the fans feel good about it if they do the way the fans should good about it if they played tampa make us. It'll be a good barometer nick. On iran i agree with you. Actually i wasn't i was the moral victory thing wasn't sarcastic. Speaking of good feelings. Tom brady is going to be ensconced by good feelings. Because he's going to get to watch the banner drop and then shortly after that. I'm sure he's going to look over on. The cowboys sideline or maybe up into the cowboys. coaching box. And say oh my old friend. Dan quinn. I remember when i saw last when you were coaching. The falcons and i was putting together the greatest comeback in super bowl history. And i remember when i saw before that in a different super bowl against seattle where i played a perfect second half against your cover three defense that i figured out a decade ago and no one told you so so i don't think brady is going to look at the cowboys remained even to be like. Oh no like. I'm concerned about it. But i here's what i am concerned about. I'm concerned about jake matthews andrew. Whitworth so those left tackles for the falcons and the rams and you might say nick. Why are you concerned about them. We'll because evidently a rule was passed. And i wasn't told about it that the bucks are not allowed to play a team. Best offensive lineman bought to yari. Out of here chiefs entire offensive lineman out of here now. That martin days for the game out of your so jake. Matthews with the falcons careful buddy week one. Because i feel like there's going to be an ankle or something because god knows camp in. Tom need a few more breaks and fought and facing a fully functional. Offense of line can't ask him. Do it so. Zack martin out of your days before the game. Love to here. It's unbelievable says unbelievable. Coach is right days. The game kobe. Zack martin gone good to know. It's amazing to watch you find ways to try to take away from tom. Brady really is it. Now it's now it's because it's offensive line Problems or or some some pattern of of the football universe ruining offensive line so then the defense is able to rise up and save tom. Brady era fisher facts. I understand that is a is a issue. It's an issue and losing your ear guards. Not something that you want to have happen. But you didn't lose your starting quarterback in and and he at some point we gotta stop making excuses for why things happen and just realize that. He has the ability to overcome different situations in different problems and win on a consistent basis. Where some quarterbacks when their offense in line is a little bit banged up they lose some to see from and they win out taylor heineke. I agree everybody everybody. This caring for his seventh simple rank. I mean seven four multiple rating trying to run it back in the nfc funny guy coachman genie back with us for new game pick aside. We are talking knicks kansas city chiefs this morning. Their quest for perfect season begins on sunday when they host baker and the browns and individual round me met rematch. Here's a look at casey's full seventeen games scheduled. Lots of the afc condemned early. Got us thinking what is more likely to chiefs. Go twenty no were. They don't win a playoff game because side off. This is a tough one. Because i am being pulled by two incredibly powerful forces on one side. I have not only my love for my hometown. Kansas city and the chiefs also the logical side of my brain. That says this team isn't gonna lose. There's not a game on that schedule. That concerns me but pulling me in the other direction is the language of the gods and that is of course math math demand that i say not won a playoff. The fox bet odds on the chiefs going twenty at all is a hundred and fifty to one. The odds have been losing. The first playoff game is going to be about three to one so it should be an easy question but as they always tell you at gambling classes if it looks to easy look again. The engineers twenty america. Fine the law that gauntlet of afc playoff team. You mean the teams who the chiefs have kicked out of the playoffs repeatedly. Oh they're gonna.

"Okay yeah. I think there's some concern. I don't know just east coast. She'll be fine. I think if might released hopefully not i. I wouldn't mind enough light. But the kind of try somewhat trending in ops directions good matchup juliana rosa versus lauren. Murphy feels that with the win. Arose should get the laura murphy fights name was supposed to get originally. I liked that for loan jackson. versus cody. stayman that's a fine match up as well mccain versus. Jj aldrich who i don't believe is books she just wanted to. That's the most popular. When i saw from mccain i i also think what does the one that makes the most sense if i were if i had matched up mccann. I say this now because of course i'm stealing from listeners. Aldrich would have been. I think the pick a boy. We'll we'll end without and clear on this. This is one that i saw and social media bunch types clear roundtree versus eve night That's the big one. I got so many of those. Yeah that was around. Cheever determined was number two round versus number. One that's the one listeners. Wanna see. I think it'd be awesome behalf. There has to be like an amazing height disparity between the two right now. My crazy is william night taller. Than i think he is and he's all know. Check us out on kickoff. All right Alex jake matthews. Here's an interesting one. Patty bullet versus tony. Ferguson ak come on. I actually didn't see anything super extreme in my Nester so that. I thought nothing close to that Jillian arosa versus gavin tucker. That's my dog. He's he likes jillian. Rosa versus gavin. Tucker john ray Molly mccann versus the loser of macy barbara versus montana la rosa. Patty pimm versus joaquim. Silva that seems about right. Cla rowntree versus dylan danilo marquez Alex monrovia jared gooden. I think a little bit of headed jarred good. Good just got his first. Ufc win Darren versus brad. Virus ak yeah. That's that was a sensible. I'm surprised i didn't go with that. Actually think again. Because since i kept saying i wanna see him. Face someone a little more mid tier. That's pretty much where two is right now. so yeah. I actually almost like that one more than the pick. I went with more than holland. But i mean holland. Certainly the sellable bullfight. Jack shore versus davey grants. Yes i like it. That's fine english. English prime Nick egli let's see what we have here. Astronaut versus website. Rowntree is six foot one logistics. One night is five foot ten so not crazy like three inches and similar reach. Actually so that'd be fun to see that'd be fun. Seeing aspinall versus the winner. This from nick egli acid versus the winner of tie borer versus volkov marino versus. Tim means short. Nick lakes clover jacoby patty versus mason jones. I saw a lot of that because because there was like a chance of them crossing pass and cage warriors when they were both there. I don't think he's ever book. But i think there was an element of like if this guy wins this guy wins this fight they were probably gonna get booked so Yeah i love that. I think there's a lot of cage wars fans out there who are a little disappointed that they missed out on that originally. And why not do it the. Oc nick shadow. Casey as well for his awesome shirts. He's always wearing some great Shot our friend con whistle ninety one. Let's see if we have anything. New rowntree versus alonzo manifield. This is not this is like on the border from me aka. Give your thoughts on this. Patty pimlott bursa. Jim miller i saw that i saw one of those. I wonder who was this. Who said issue. This is shaun con whistle. Ninety-one different person. Yeah i don't. I someone so the person sent to me. I think explained it with like they wanna see him. Brought up slowly. And i'm like. Is that a slow. I get it. Jim miller is not a contender anymore. I understand that is that really considered a slow roll up. He's so he's so the kind of guy who would like spoil the pimlott hype train. Yeah it's eh this but at the same time any would be favored and also a win would move him up the rankings. Pretty quickly but that puts him in like the top thirty. If he beats jim miller. I think i would go. I wouldn't go any higher than that. Okay yeah i. I don't love it just because the big gap and series but but i i get it to the matchmakers. That doesn't matter as much really more. They compare overall record. So it's fine but even then and then again who has record like jamila we're gonna we're going to play cards so yeah not my favorite Kyle smith talked about the oblique kick How long are they going to be allowed. Probably forever he likes roundtree versus kennedy tchoukou or maybe another one really ipad batty. Throw joe celeski. Don't like that one that's dangerous fight. jamie monarchies fighting devante smith but he also said he wouldn't be mad to see patty pinball versus jeremy stevens. Jeremy steven wet love that he was. He was treated like mcgregor proxy and by the way people mcgregor timbaland almost like nothing in common other than they're both from the uk and northern. Oh i'm gonna. I'm gonna screw with other than they're both from europe. And they're both cocky guys. They're fighting someone like go like. Oh well i guess we're not gonna wanna walk match up with the grappler onto. He's a grappler people don't know he's a grappler. The standup is actually his weakness. He likes to throw like he's clearly power but like he's not a striker by any means so i found that funny that i think he's getting this kind of a level hypes that people assume he's like another mcgregor. He's a very very different fighter. Yes keen elliott likes aspinall versus the winner of shamila versus dacas. he suggested patty panel versus ofman. Zitar sure yeah. I don't know it's still too soon for that Drew hilty first-time submitter. Thank you very much welcomed drew. He likes the brunson versus cost of vittori winner. That's a new one. I didn't see that one. yeah. I'm okay with that. I think i saw that actually was i saw. At least a couple of people recommend that astronauts kind of kind of hard to book he suggested sakai pinball versus chris gritzmaker who might have a fight. But i'm not really sure couldn't find it anywhere Jack short versus highly barcellos from our friend drew all right. We head to italy. Our guy francesco by the way people technology to bear the most. they're the best database for having fights. That are reported official rumored. I don't want any excuses. But i couldn't find out if a fighter is booked all right that's i don't wanna hear it. We go to technology if they don't have it then it's either not a substantial rumor or or the fighter isn't booked. Francesco said brunson should wait asthma. Adverse derek lewis. I i saw. I recommend i thought at least two people recommend that i'm i'm very much against it if it happened. I think it'd be cool adds to obviously i'd i'd i'd i'd find a way to rationalize it. It's not what i would look. I wouldn't either morona versus miguel biza Pinball versus austin hubbard. That's kind of like the range like to see like that. I like that Mccain versus tracy cortez in jack shore versus song dong. I wouldn't mind that fight either. Oh right quartet. I almost take back. That's why why wouldn't have been the alderson. Because i think just like to see them. Re book aldrich and cortes dollars. Replace cortes no all. Just were supposed to play. Co-ord- yeah yeah. Of course it was one of my favorite matchups Yeah so i take back can't aldwych and mechanics called cortez other one another first-timer. This is moving. Twenty-one thank you Patty versus jeremy stevens and then another assegai rowntree versus entra teuku Yeah i mean to stevens. Yeah gosh. I don't know all right Dalton kanzi read his response on the show. Saying that we were right about darren till elbow slash not really knocked down thing Tristen gorgets are for interesting.

Build grand is a very dangerous guy. maybe someday couple more wins. We see we can start talking about that but no we can't do that Rowntree versus ahlberg. Don't mind that aspen also till versus your hall and then brunson versus cannon here. I have a feeling we're going to see a lot of those. So if i see that again. i probably won't read it again.

"Move on and let's talk about an interesting piece of matchmaking that we haven't touched on yet i've wanted to but we've had some busy weeks in the world of combat sports. This is not the busiest week in combat. sports figure. Now is a good a time as any you have see to. Sixty four is a crazy looking car right now. We just saw the carlos. Condit is now on this car. And he's fighting. Max griffin of course. There's mcgregor three. There's wonderboy gilbert burns nego price versus michelle Ahead is on this car. The list goes on. And on. But i wanted to touch on one fight in particular. Wanted to touch on the return of the motown fee. Kevin lee his first fight. Since the submission loss to charles oliveira in march of last year. He's moving back up to one seventy he's dealt with a bunch of gnarly injuries along the way tore one. Acl and as he was ready to come back tears the other acl. The dude is has had a string of bad luck. That is just unbelievable. But he's moving up to one seventy in his opponents. The undefeated sean brady. This is an interesting booking. Jose do you dig this one. Is this the right. Fight to make for kevin lease return. I don't want to use the word right and wrong. Just because i like high level martial arts competitions regardless of whether it's a big money fight or high level main or whatever you wanna call it just want to see high level competition. I will never say kevin lee is ever looks for an easy way out is called Is la chevy in. Russia chose to fight. Charles oliver in brazil hauled out gregor last via to fight in his home city of new york city. So kevin lee is about that life. He'll fight whoever wherever whenever As long as of course he's in top fifteen Yeah awesome fight They both have wins. Over jake matthews. Oddly enough what i've sean brady beaten one. Two thousand twenty two thousand and nineteen pretty sure. Kevin did like all the way back in two thousand and sixteen when he's still cutting his teeth in the afc so We've obviously seen kevin lee welterweight before with the against rda which is basically just to lightweights just not cutting weight. Kevin lee in addition to adult head tattoo. I say dope Because i like any crazy head or face tattoo or neck tattoo in any sport because it's hilarious. Fantastic to me the fact that i did. A samurai half samurai helmet is just puzzling to me. And i love everything about it I love this fight in terms of the actual competition inside the cage. Tom brady said is undefeated Very underrated not underrated. Because that's kind of his brother. But i think what people's view sean brady They don't say oh that this man is a high level grappling eylau submission artist. He's very good at grappling. He's very good at choking people unconscious. You wanted to fight damian. Maya so again not gonna say sean braves ever looking for an easy either so I think it's a good fight for all of these. Men are in their career to sixty four. Which is obviously massive. Pay per view headlined by dust Verse conor mcgregor three So all eyes are on these two gentlemen a plus all around matchmaking. I know. Kevin lee wanted to fight mike perry which probably would have done more in terms of the trash in the up. All my face tattoos better than your head tattoo. And i'm here for that conversation. It's the gansters. Kevin lease had that too by the way. So but in terms of natural fistfight onto high level fighters kevin versus. Sean brady checks all of my boxes. i'm sure Sean brady's tattoo game is is pretty on point for jose young's as well he's trying he's laser and a lot of it off. Don't worry i got to the bottom of it. So i don't know what else he has. He has great tattoos. It's just not done yet. Fair enough what. Do you think jed jose saying a plus matchmaking. Do you agree with the sentiment. Kevin lee sean brady is. This is this a plus matchmaking. Be like the main problem here is everybody knows who kevin at nobody knows. Sean brady is like maybe it said he has a creative fighter name. And that's really tough to overcome like anthony. Smith bought for a title. And i'm still not sure anyone to the he is because that name s just hard when you google in there like in any given town america. They're probably tinge on. Brady's like small towns five hundred people biggest thing. They got a super walmart. They're going to be a couple of sean breeze as a really tough thing to overcome unless you're making stand performances and yeah grappler got a couple substance last few fights also into a decision record. Mcgee's that's not really a that's not put your name on the marquee super well. So that's that's the big problem here from an actual competitive standpoint. It's a great fight. You probably going to see really sick. Grapples and peer for that like from xs and os. Good fight but kevin lee is a name. Kevin lean peasant figured out. We'll wait. He wants to be a bit of a problem because he should make a choice But it's just like look at the mike. Parry fight is worse because my parents not as good a fighter. Sean brady whose name. I almost just screwed up. Because that's how it is as the name. It's terrible man. i'm very sorry for you. The dow was burned with you. And you wanted to be famous. That's really gonna hold you back. So yeah it's it's tough for me. Man kevin lease should be fighting. Somebody like mike perry because if he really does wanna make a welterweight run. Perry gives him kind of okay. People know this guy. Yeah he's maybe not that good but we know you're really good lightweight. Let's put you in and then let's put you in marquee. Matchups heavenly is a marquee fighter. And sean brady. Maybe he'll get there because he's thirteen or fourteen of the hell is obviously very talented. But he's not there yet so this feels like they're giving him a chance to maybe get a big win over kevin louis but i don't know that that's going to work out form and the downside of its substantial like you. You should be putting kevin lee against this look as a little too high after the inflation terribly. Woodley win but you should be putting him somewhere there on july of kevin lee. That's that's a pretty sick fight like heavily would do it because the one thing my opponent said that was not wrong as kevin about that life. So he's fighting marquis fighters. This feels like a bit of step back form honestly in that regard but from an xs and os standpoint. You can't knock a fight. They are both really really good at fighting. Yeah kevin lee has always had the makings of a big star. Means an action fighter..

"Has Seton pointed out there in the commercial break. Might be legal reasons why This hasn't been confirmed that the interview with Julio Jones and Fox Sports with Shannon Sharpe. Wasn't cleared beforehand because in California where that show is taped, you can't take somebody illegally. Um Springing. Albert Breer, senior NFL Reportedly content strategist for the money Morning. Quarterback. Do wanna let you know Albert that you are live on the show right now. Thanks for the heads. Okay? Priskos wouldn't let you Everything's nice and legal here. Yes, it is. Yes, it is. I think most members of the media don't really care about sort of these details behind the scenes that Julio Jones No, he was on the air. Not fans don't care. They just want to know what Where is he going to go here? So let me least touch on what happened here with Julio Jones and Shannon Sharpe. Do you think Julio knew He was on the air Live? I don't think you know, um, you know, just digging around a little bit yesterday. I really got the sense based on the way some things went down that that he didn't know. And honestly, I mean, without having inside knowledge of exactly the way that that went down between Shannon Julio, like we have 10 years of track record on Julio Dan. I mean, does that seem a little out of character like he is such a private guy? And I like the fact that they were able to keep this quiet for 2.5 months like I like. Why would you just blurt that out like it's just like the whole thing smelled funny when it happened, and the more I dig around the more it's sort of It just seems to have confirmed the fact that he didn't fully know that he was what he was saying was going out to a national television audience. And I think if you listen to the conversation, it sounds like casual conversation between a couple guys in the phones. I think we heard about there were whispers around the draft that Julio Jones could be traded. I think the night of the draft we thought that maybe there's a chance that he could be traded, But now you fast forward this to go. Okay. If you're the Falcon's eye view, this is a Matthew Stafford moment like, Hey, we're open for business He wants out. And if you want to make us an offer, we're not the bad guys moving on from Julio Jones. But I also go back to their draft strategy here. If if you're letting Julio go you're bringing in Kyle pitch, But you still have Matt Ryan. That's where I wondered. Why not just do a total reset and I know you still have Matt Ryan for a year. A to least but you could have drafted the quarterback, so there's a lot to kind of unpack here. Because I think that they feel like they're close enough where they can compete right now with the core players. They have even absent Julio. And if you look like I mean Dion Jones really good middle linebacker Jake Matthews, really good left tackle Calvin Ridley, potentially number one receiver. They poured a lot of first round picks into that offensive line. You know, I think you can see where the new guys in charge there. The GM Teri fought on the coach Arthur Smith, feel like We can win right now, and we can do Maybe what? Andy Reid didn't Kansas City where we can build around a veteran quarterback for the first few years be competitive year in and year out and then eventually pick our spot when there's a quarterback out there that we really like in the draft and get aggressive and going get him, But I do think job number one for them going into this offseason was cleaning up the salary cap, and that's This whole thing began. They really have five players. They've got gigantic contracts on the roster on DATs. You know Ryan, Julio Dion Jones, Jake Matthews and Grady Jarrett. And they've already restructured three of those guys. So you know, Ryan, Dion Jones and Jake Matthews are in for 2021. The question then becomes Where do you find space going forward? You want to keep pushing money forward, So what's already going to be a 22 in two problem becomes a 2023 problem. I just think when you add the fact that Julio quietly lodged that request through his agent in early March, you can kind of had things up. Where you say, OK, The Falcons were looking for capital E. Here's a guy who doesn't want out. The other guy's one in Let's build going forward is if we're gonna win right now, knowing that there's 12 big piece, the puzzle is probably going to come out who should call the Falcons today. Like I doesn't make all the sense in the world that this could be the all of branched Aaron Rodgers like I mean, it's just and their cap is an issue and everything else but like it's like, here's the thing with the Packers and Aaron, like I think they're in a little bit of a tough spot because I go out of this. I think we talked about this last week goes back to last year. The communication of the Jordan Love pick was poor between the team and Rogers that created hard feelings. I think the fact that the Packers have largely stood pat as far as veteran acquisitions this offseason, rubbed him the wrong way. He wants them to build the way that the box have built around Brady. Well, if you really want Aaron back in, you know, you figure it's tough to prove to him that you're gonna build a different way at this juncture in the off season, And now that opportunity's sitting there for you right now, maybe you mortgage a couple contracts. You do some things that you haven't done in the past to bring in a star player. And give Aaron Rodgers Julio Jones to play opposite Davante Adams like it just to me like if you if you're the Packers, and you really, really want Aaron Rodgers back in and you feel like you're in a two or three year window to compete for championships. What better heir All of friends? T get Aaron Rodgers back in, then to go acquire Julio Jones. How about this you trade Jordan love for Julio Jones. That's perfect, right? And then the Falcons into the Falcons have a guy they could develop on the roster, right? I mean, like, now, all the sudden this was easy, but we saw we saw this. This is we just solved a major problem. Julio Jones, the Packers Aaron Rodgers is back in the Falcons have their quarterback of the future. We just talked for five minutes and solved everything that we just talked about in 26 hours Easy. That was easy. What was the big takeaway from Aaron Rodgers Interview last night? That you have to decode everything, which I think you know, you know animal enough, Dan that you have to decode everything that, he says and I think when he says it's about the people, you know he's pointing back toe. Communication issues that there have been over the last year and a half and you know again, and I hate to keep harping. I don't think it's as much about the Jordan love pick itself as it is. The way it happened, how it caught him off guard how he found out about it While they're on the clock. I just think that could have been handled better. I think they're people the Packers organization that would concede that to you. Um, you know, and then I think going forward, you know, now is Radar's up, and it's okay..

The venus elsa versus a mandala moves. This is gonna be a pretty good fight man. Yeah a good really really good bye. I'm going to pick a man dilemma. Certain to win this site south that she she'd been on a tear. But i'm gonna go to go with demand. Sows alex thousand. There was sixteen against number nineteen. It's a good matchup Thousand only last cup fighters some real good. You know women that enter division. So it's a at one fifteen i mean. I think they're one of these ladies can come out as a contender right here Given with the record is where they bought nam. It's low on the card for what it is that the car to stack. But yeah i. I agree rob. This is going to be. It'd be a low key. Fight of the night raiders. Gillians going out. I'm gonna go sousa man my bad baby. If a finnish happens at some point i was enjoying a raspberry salad. I got the. I've got a some some type of finish happens here. This could be a night where we could see three finishes right off the gate nardin and back as it. Is we start out with finishes even with this late these ladies early on the prelims there. There's a very good possibility that could happen. Is yes sir. Yeah it's gonna be good scrap man of possibly like you said not not a unanimous decisions on the first day by fights prelims. It'd be good asking burning. I fight possible finishes in all of them. That's my nick on him. Yup you pick your pick alex. Yeah i got so k. Next up is possibly. We're gonna see another finish on these On this fight man. We got the sham. Brady vs jake matthews. Am i mean these guys have knocked out power. And they really do and jake matthews. She defeated Giggle sanchez. I mean not to allow him. Sean brady forever. Diego apoligise man. Can you exactly exactly he's alive. He's in one destroyed yego. That's exactly what. I can never root for this guy again. I here's you issue. John radi man. He's got some quality wins man. He got a win over court. Mcgee he guillotine choke christine aguilera. Super tough man. He's a handle billy. I believe you'll probably have paul felder new corner He has a great camp man. Jake matthews forever. The youngest guy prospect. In the i mean guys been fighting since nineteen years old in the. Us's but yeah this is a tough test man. I like brady. And the fight Jake batches proven that. He's tough and he's not really controlling the fight from start to finish in a decision. There's going to be problems. And i think brady's style credentials problems and makes it a war. I do like same here man. I think sean brady. He's that do the can kill ran. Low loki killers. A lot of people. Don't really have their eyes on him And it's twenty against twenty four as far as technology. rankings are. he's being number twenty. So this is kind of ships up the upper of united fifteen to twenty rankings. I think brady of make his mark there because yes asked us not an easy task but yeah i do like brady and i think yeah after man so tough guys is tough as nails man can ever county.

"To pass at that point, it really becomes a question of if he's not there. What do you do? I'm of the opinion that you started foreign trade backs because one offensive lineman not named Penny Shaw is not gonna fix that often. Climate. I'd much rather have to average Officer Lyman that one great one with the number five overall pick will help that their line was last year. Okay, So if if he's not there who's the next best option for them? I'm just wondering where they would look next because it doesn't look like there's a next best option is there Yeah, I think receiver is actually rather than respect off the next best option. Yes, In terms of talent level at that point, there are some exceptionally good receivers in this draft Last true number one type of guys that rare skill sets. That you might not find the second round. It's kind of like a J. Green back in the day. You're gonna find an easy agreed sitting there. You know the top of the second round when you're picking, so you gotta go get him right away. So I think that could be Where they go. I could also see linebacker Michael Parsons. Even though that's a little high for linebacker. We've seen just help. Bad their linebackers are and he's. He's up there with penny stool in terms of, you know, one of the better prospects as position over the past decade yourself, But I'm there. Next best option. An offensive line. I mean, e. You're there's a huge drop off between school and For example, why it Davis and Ohio State or ratio on Slater at Northwestern huge drop office or not? Yeah, I think there's a pretty significant drop off in terms of how comfortable you feel like that being a good Jacqueline the NFL. I think later could be a good guard in the NFL. And I think that I feel very happy about that. But starts not nearly as valuable tap a tree scene that was banged up, But you need good Jackal Play on then you can kind of you could find good guards elsewhere. You're not gonna find good tackles just sitting there as free agents off the street so Yeah, That's what I said. If if there is no penny school there, I'd much rather have to quality. You know, options on the office line, Trade back and get two guys just Get myself with one guy who might just who might you probably is good. You know, Rachel Slater would be a good player at the NFL level, but he's not going to like said Fix your offices line issues with how many holes you have, er Well, I mean, let's just do let's do the logical math on this. Jacksonville is going to take Trevor Laurence. I think that's a I mean, if you think Sewell is a no brainer five of available I mean, I don't know what they were doing. Jacksonville the fan base as limited as it may be hard for what they would do if they didn't take Trevor Laurence. He goes number one overall. You still believe that? I know that right? Yeah, okay. So the Jets I mean, they got Sam Donald so I can't believe that they would go for another quarterback can't believe that they would go from Their second overall pick. They're going to take Justin Fields where the Jets be a candidate for an offensive lineman. No, I would floor me if they took it off until I'm in it, too. I don't believe that they will. Okay. Well, then you get then you get to Miami. They have AH, pick from Houston. Their tenants. Their offensive line look pretty good last year. I can't believe Miami would do that. Would you? Yeah, that's the one where they might like they have. Two young jackals they drafted last year in the first round, and I believe the third round And both started. But neither were another. Without great. I'll say like they weren't there. Not gonna beep initial, like one of them probably better suited at guard anyway, So I think that's the most logical candidate for tackle. Come off the board. He doesn't there, though. I think he was the other board for the Bangles that stuff. Right because you have to figure Atlanta who's up next? I mean, they've got to do something. You know, there's some future besides Julio Jones, so my guess is they would take your mark chase, right? Yes, they have. You know Jake Matthews. They signed his own long terms Your left just after one of the first round a couple of years ago on cable, but they're so they wouldn't be in shape to tackle sounded like it's going to be sore. Chatting with mike rinder profootballfocus dot com. His draft guide or pro football focuses draft guide under his tutelage. Is now out on available for you on Pff dot com. Alright, any draft of any success for any team? Largely predicated by what you doing around one. You have to have someone who can come in and contribute immediately. But we, you and I both know Rounds 23 and four is where Championship teams were built. Let's just say for the moment and for argument's sake that pin a soul is there at five in the Bangles, Take him. Where would you anticipate them going in rounds two and three, and who would be Likely candidates for them at that position. I think you could see them Go wide receiver. Then around two. It is yet again of very deep wires. Your class I'd put it may be better than last year's in terms of just overall talent. I think they could get a guy like Uh, you know, Elijah more in the second round. Who's got some speed necklaces and kind of what kind What they wanted John Ross to be if you ever you know, was able to run the correct route. That that would be kind of like a lifetime. Or he's got that sort of still sense. I'm just speed athleticism, but a lot better. What? Tougher at the catch point, So I think that could be somewhere that definitely need some speed and that receiving fork style. Avoid. See Higgins both great receivers. Neither is gonna take the top off defense That was going to scare too many guys about going deep, so I think that's where I would go. Our the Bangles at that point to speed, usually Yeah. You said to load a wide receiver class. I think some guys will get pushed down because of that. But speed still doesn't last long and hard to find guys that run in the fourth reason the 4th 3rd 4th round So we're saying Devante Smith obviously is gone. Jalen Watto gone. What about somebody like was shot, Bateman. 62 to 10. That's not bad size. Is he gone? You think before they pick I don't think he will be. But he's almost the exact same mole than tea. Higgins and that, like I said, you got you'll have three receivers, then that probably all run about a 46 40. But you're just not gonna scare teams about going down the field we kind of saw with girl last year. No, not having much deep success just because they didn't have many deeper series. They have guys who could get open at that level the field, so I think if you're gonna go any route you want Add just a little influx of explosiveness into that office. Yeah, Yeah, I was talking about this in the last half hour in anticipation of you coming on No team in the situation. The Bangles. Aaron is going to get better overnight with one draft, just It doesn't happen. You've gotta spend money in free agency. And although I know you're all in on the draft, I think they've got to go outside and find somebody on that offensive line. That could come in, settle things down and allow players Like Jonah Williams can continue to develop and I'm looking again on pro football focused calm the best offensive lineman available in.
Falcons could field an offense with 11 first-round draft picks
"So we had a truck a couple of signings by the Atlanta Falcons over the weekend right to pick up tight end Hayden Hurst from the Baltimore Ravens and they also acquired look Kwan Treadwell a former number one pick for the Minnesota Vikings yeah as the Atlanta falcons roster currently stands right now on offense alone just on offense they have a Levin former first round picks all of these former first round picks quarterback Matt Ryan first round pick Todd Gurley who sign when he was released first round pick Julio Jones first round pick Calvin Ridley first round pick the Quantrill first round pick Hayden Hurst first round pick left tackle Jake Matthews first round pick left guard James carpenter first round pick center Alex Mack former first round pick Chris Lindstrom the right guard former first round pick and right tackle Caleb McGary also that he first started his first round eleven is incredible let them all eleven of them a former first round pick I mean there's no way that's ever happened before right I can't believe that what ever but here's the real question if you had to redraft everyone of these players how many would be former first rounder this okay because I think this is fair Lidstrom McGarry and carpenter I've always been really what one or two years no it's been really since two thousand eleven okay yeah so let's remind me Gerry I think you were taken off or taken them out yeah okay so all of the other nine how many would be redrafted as a first round what's what's going on it's not right absolutely no question that runs for Todd Gurley no yeah I I would say no I would sit well I would say no one quite frankly his a conversation about the value of the position in general could also affect the new with him that was the thing coming out of college yes I look he has fifty eight rushing touchdowns over his first whatever seasons and all the other ones are either in the hall of Famer going let me just say six are we saying first rounder today or go back to the beginning again it would re drawing back to the beginning again because I'm currently the way Todd Gurley came out I mean would you not still take him in the first one that's the question now right are you going to pay for that kind of production from a running back anymore we saw Christian McCaffrey Leonard for net like there's been plenty examples of even a legal or not re signing a big second contract drafting a great one of the first round can still benefit you a lot okay I'm just trying to get to it you know is that what they've done in their right career does that mean where are the first roll worthy to me the girly thing is to your point he had a knee injury coming out of college and right when they signed with the red sign that long term deal with they're trying they got out of now then he was going to be chronic so to me the top group member he was the first one that airports reset the market for running backs and it turned out no he just re establish the old line of thinking but that first three years of production would you that would you spend a first round pick on that because we saw that rand's office how much in common now it always goes like this with the running game but in combination with an offense of line that did really well what you brought into what worth over would you pay for that as the foundation of your off I'm beginning to go the Melkite around here that I'm not sure running back as well because Melvin Gordon was in that same draft and Melvin Gordon is on his team I got an extreme I think that's the biggest conversation we could take out of this is the running back position record number mellow one point eighty never take a running back in the first Rana I wonder for we're slowly but surely going back to it I mean there was a contract a couple years ago with the first running back off the board was late second round out of Tennessee and I think we're going back to that after a bevy running backs being taken so we were definitely in on Matt Ryan yes we're out on Todd Gurley a legit is amazing looking back at Todd Gurley's draft class there's not a lot of got like if you're talking about reworking the top ten Todd Gurley might be the most wealthy in that group maybe outside of Amari Cooper yeah we can we can have that discussion later because that's in it read graphic I think is always fast and you have to wait a certain amount of time Julio Jones know quite well right Calvin Ridley first round too early again I think it's too early last year what he had sixty three receptions okay just under nine hundred okay seven touchdowns I would mean he also can't account for how bad that team ask me yes or no right now I'd say yes but I still think it might be too early Hayden Hurst no not because look they they took marketers later in the draft in the third round he clearly became the tight end of Baltimore which made Hayden Hurst by the way has taken in the first row before Lamar Jackson R. Jackson for Lamar starting you know tight on that team right now marketers you said right Hayden Hurst also dealt with some injuries and stuff there too that's okay in perfect sample size and when you have a guy come on like marquetry who could predict that the way that offense ended up of what he was the Mackey award winner a what he was coming home with one truck will no no Jake Matthews yes I think so I think so I think so do not I meet yeah yeah I mean yes he's been there he's been there is a second contract I also wrote a like doesn't miss a lot of games he's he's dependable yeah I think that's what it our printer are probably not I mean he's he's been a guy that's been in the league for nine years now dependable guy but we're talking about first round right you know I mean when you're twenty four we'll talk about for sure we're talking about top ten picks like a lot yeah yeah yeah I I'd probably lean toward no on that as well yeah yeah Alex Mack yeah absolutely yeah yeah and then the other than what we remember and I think Lidstrom would be headed in that direction yeah kill the guy who's more reach last year get killed the one I have questions about obviously we know the health concerns that existed before the draft earning a hard issue that he had had to deal with early in this time oxygen so there's a lot to hash out with those two but just I mean blows off the page when you just read that number the every single hundred dinners with that crew yeah what eleven Ryan still got its still on that ride to reach for the paycheck first but everyone else has to at least go for their wallets and act like there's also a common I do with you know with my dad so you got rid you got Ridley help you got got this R. Ridley Hearst links from a Gerry all still on their rookie deals you know wrecked yeah everybody else is is all for them yeah if I'm looking at yes correct so yeah they're all fascinating eleven a former first rounders on
