"In the NFL this weekend. It's not an embarrassment of riches after having six last weekend, but we'll take weekend get. We got two on Saturday and two on Sunday. We're gonna talk about the Browns versus the Kansas City Chiefs. And let's start the Browns version of things. They beat Pittsburgh last week for the first playoff game in God knows how long Jake Trotter does a great job covering the ESPN NFL nation. Brown's report, he said, thanks to the Goodyear Hotline, Jake A lot of people look at the spread their 10 point. Underdog going on the road against Kansas City. But what is the temperature around this team with their belief that they can take down the Kansas City Chiefs? Yeah, they absolutely believe Freddie that they can go to Casey and win that game and that if they realized It's going to be tough. It's going to be a monumental challenge with Patrick the homes and The guys that they have on that team. You know, there's a top seed in the city for a reason, but I think Cleveland is demonstrated this year that they can play. Just about anybody when they're often tie They can score with anybody is well, so I think that they feel Very comfortable about their chances. And, you know, whatever the point spread. Is Cleveland gotten farther than they have in 18 years. I guess, 26 years considering they want to play off games, so they're not worried about that kind of stuff. Try to some things have not changed with me since you and our current college football together. The point spread. My brother is Brown's plus 10. So they're Ugo Health wise. How is this team? Whether it's health or Koven, How are they coming into this game? Yeah, This is the healthiest Closest to full strength. They have been In weeks, if not more than a month. You know they have had Oh, bit issues really dating back Toto that Jets game. In week 16. And it just seems like every day since then, up until this week. They had a new guy going on there, but no no positive tests. Knock on wood so far this week. They've gotten all their assistant coaches that to miss the Pittsburgh and it wasn't just happens to fancy. 45 assistant coaches that were out That game is well, they got joke. Tonio back the Pro Bowl left guard today. He practiced today, so they are gonna have their full complement of players and No. A lot of times lately, years you're trying to find bodies to plug holes. The Browns are getting you guys back, so they This is the best version of Lawsuit that they've had a long time. Jake Trotter comes the Browns of the ESPN. Brown's reporter for NFL Nation on Freddy and Fitz Simmons on ESPN Radio and XM Channel 80 Karim Hunt We used to play for the candidate achieves now part of the best back tandem in the NFL with him and Nick Chubb. He said. It was personal going into Can city chiefs How personal really isn't going to be, even though he was one that pushes somebody Kansas City because he could not keep his life together off the football field? Yeah. I mean, I think that that is a team that Some of it. Probably They want to win the game for him because you know that that that was where he used to play and it gets more so you're facing off in its former teammates. You know any time you play a former team, you know you want to play at your highest level more so than you know, they Wrong, be in any way that this is the things that I've got this week. So you know, I think you want to play well, they're gonna need him to play well. To win this game, but I don't think it's like the revenge scenario. If if that's what you're doing, Jake 30 seconds we saw how Devante Smith was just almost unguardable in college football for Alabama. Terry kills. Lot is, you know, kind of the same animal. So I called the cheetah right with Kansas City. How do you try and slow this guy down in your Cleveland even getting Denzel Ward back a corner. Yeah, I don't know. I mean, I e. I've gotten that question a lot this week, and I don't really have a good answer for it. I wondered about homes have a good answer for it as well. Because you know they've given up points and yards this year. It's a lot of different Offenses. I think that Blueprint for them is what you saw in Pittsburgh, and maybe you get five turnovers. But if you could get a big one or two Give your offense a chance to keep pace And one thing about this ground offense taken, scored a lot of different ways and beat you have an opportunity, give them to pull the upset.

Lake Erie's Revenge: The Cleveland Browns Date With AFC Destiny

"Thanks for joining me. Man going to be on with ov pablo jake. Trotter covers the cleveland browns for espn and before that you reported on the big twelve and followed baker mayfield's meteoric rise. So you live in cleveland. I live in cleveland. I live about five miles away from the browns training facility in berea. Ooh so listen you are right at the heart of everything you cover the browns. I want to understand what does winning this first. Playoff game. twenty six years doing it against is truly hated. Enemy in the pittsburgh steelers. What does it do for a city after two decades of being like generally humiliated. How would you describe the energy. Jake in cleveland right now. Yeah i would describe it as one of the greatest moments in the history of the city. And i'm not just talking about football. I'm talking about all moments. If you talk to people who grew up your they would say that sunday one of the happiest days of their lives sunday night after that win you could hear fireworks going off around cleveland. I don't know who has fireworks in the middle of january but people have them. Apparently people were driving up and down. Their streets warns it was a very exciting night. For cleveland and one that they've been waiting for for twenty six years and really forever considering how dominated they have been by the steelers over the years. Yes i'm looking at a list of things. Actually jake that happened in nineteen ninety four when the browns won their last playoff game. Turns out the number one on the billboard charts. Was the sign by ace of base. Is that all sound right to you. In terms of how did all of this has been feeling. Yeah i've been doing this all year checking what songs were number one at a time. The browns headache milestone. I know that when they were foreign one for the first time since nineteen ninety. Four when bill belichick was still the head coach. That boys to men actually had the number one song on the billboard. Hot one hundred. That kind of gives you a little context of how long it's been since the browns were at this point. I mean they're starting quarterback for example wasn't even alive to rewind to a little bit more recently the week leading up to this playoff win over the steelers it was. I don't even know how to explain it. Other than just like total chaos. Breaking news into i ate out of cleveland browns coach. Kevin stefanski has tested positive for covid. Nineteen according to our adam schefter to other coaches and players dealing with kobe related issues. They're closing their facilities fellas. They ultimately competed with kevin stefanski in his basement. Watching the game not on the sidelines. So what is this week been like as it relates to cove it. They had a practice on wednesday which was weird to see because they haven't had a practice or very many of them not even just last week for the last couple of weeks. I mean go back to the game in week. Sixteen when they traveled to play the jets. They had to delay their flight because they had a positive test from one of their players. Then they had to put their entire receiving core as high risk close contacts on the reserve covid nineteen list. They finally get to newark. They stay the night there. They were not able to do a walk through before leaving on saturday so they held a walk through on the fifth floor. The parking garage that morning adjacent to their hotel really from that moment until now it is been total. Chaos i mean they have had almost every single day since then. Something chaotic happen where they'd had to adjust. They went the entire week last week. Almost without a practice until getting one in friday they finally got kevin stefanski their head coach back in the building on thursday. It has been a bizarre couple of weeks. But to this team's credit into kevin's stefanski credit. They have never panicked. They have never felt sorry for themselves and they have been able to overcome it. Which is the most impressive thing. When this team given their lack of success in the past in the way as they've come together their ability to overcome different curve balls that have been thrown their way.

"Looks like two or something in his knee is he landed? You know, Myron, You hate that for the kid, But it's also an embarrassing way to get hurt. Unfortunately, Especially in social media. People are going to play that over and over again, but it is unfortunate it is unfortunate. Hopefully he'll be okay right now. The other bowl game old Miss Leeds, Indiana, 13 to 3 at halftime of the Outback Bowl. Jake Trotter is ESPN NFL reporter that covers the Browns, and he joins us on the Goodyear hotline. Your drink, Jake, that we We've talked a lot about the Browns over the last little bit and what's at stake, But you can tell us. Where are the Browns Right now. Going to the game. Who's out? The facility was closed for the third time in four days. How are they looking going into the Steelers game tomorrow? That's so huge. That's a great question. He really it will take me, probably 30 seconds. Theo. Rehash everything that happened this week, and they're going to be missing a legal genius. Literally just omitted the other team in an institute you without their offensive line coach bill to use you as an assistant to stop Peters. Who do you think you would have a three inch of assistance Sunday chattel Shade was already been rolled out to the game on Sunday, and that's just the coaching staff. Once we get to the players you're talking about in jail. Lord it was a pro bowler a couple years ago, a corner Andrus and Jae Ho. It's safety Harrison Bryant tight end You know they they are. They're gonna be down some guys against the team that's resting people. In the Steelers. So we're gonna see a lot of backups on the field Sunday. But in terms of the Browns, I mean, it has been an absolute oil wind last Seven days, going back the last Saturday when they were missing their entire receiving corps for that Jets loss. Jake obviously a unfortunate situation, but they might be playing a Pittsburgh team that doesn't have a lot to play for. My bigger question is what is this potentially mean if the Browns win and get into the playoffs if they end up having a Saturday playoff game next weekend? Probably means you're gonna be missing for guys on really. London Hearts is Jen's award. I mean, this is decent. Has been okay at times this year, but it has been powered by the stars. You know, Miles Garrett before he Contracted covert earlier this year, Wise in the running for NFL defensive player of the year and he was leading the league in sacks and forced fumbles. Then you know, then he went out with with Covad. Denzil Ward has been playing about as well as any other defender on the Browns on really look like the Pro Bowl or he was a zoo, a rookie 2018. And after those two guys, you know, they've been just trying toe put the damn basically with You know different combinations and that they had guys have some moments, but consistently it's 10, Miles Garrett Atkins awarded vials himself is still trying to get back to 100%. From Kobe, he said a couple of weeks ago after that Giants game on Sunday night, he had a coughing fit in the locker room, like just having a hard time catching his breath. And then you lose Denzel Ward, and if it's the Saturday game, it's hard to see how you would be able to play. Given the NFL 10 Day protocols brutal, positive test. So you got you got one of your two best players that potentially would be and then your other one who was still kind of working his way back. Obviously would not be ideal. But I can tell you that the Browns had he not been in the playoffs and 17 seasons. They're not looking ahead to any of that. They're just worried about getting in. You have a better any longer. Cleveland. He's getting this would be a huge win regardless of what would be ahead for this franchise. Jake Trotter, ESPN NFL reporter Joining us here on Game day looking not just at tomorrow, but beyond Baker Mayfield is set to conclude season number three, which means as a first round pick, he's going to be eligible for a contract extension this off season. How do you think the organization is going to proceed with Mayfield and the off season are they're going to get into talks with them, Or is this going to be something that kick the can down the road on? Yeah. I mean, I think that his really changed in the last couple of months with the way that Baker has played. I mean, since you know, from week week seven, the game that oh, no decent was heard off in in Cincinnati. On up until just game. It will throw that one out. You know, for personal reasons, even though dissident play well, but during that stretch There are only two other quarterbacks had a higher T B r in the NFL. One of them was Republican when the NDP issue here, watchers and then you had Patrick, the home, the other those the only two guys that had played better in Baker here is to keep you know during, you know that 10 weeks stretched so so You know, I think the first question you know, they're gonna pick up the fifth year option and I think that I think that has been decided. You know, I think that's very likely at this point. And I think the extension is a real possibility. I think they definitely will talk at this point. And, you know, listen. Baker hasn't been perfect this year, but you have to look at the contacts of Cleveland. This is a franchise that it started. Many different quarterbacks going back to 1999. This was a franchise that expended the number one overall pick in 2018. And if that player gets you into your first two playoff parents and 17 seasons It's just really difficult to not be tempted by making him your long term answer and And I think that all the moment, um will be in that direction, especially to the Browns win tomorrow and finally break the playoff drought. Jake Trotter here on Game day, ESPN Radio Matt Jones, Meyer, Metcalf and Joe 40 Baht. I'll get you out with this. What do you think happens tomorrow? I mean, I can't think of a game where I'm less sure, not just about results, but about who's gonna be on the field. How much each team cares. We know the Browns care, but how much Steelers care going into it. You're around these guys like what do you think's happening? Yeah, It's gonna be a really bizarre game. Because you know, like you said, the Steelers are gonna be resting guys. You know, Joe Hayden's out their outstanding corner duty. Oh, you know, covert issues as well. But they're going to try to win the game. I mean, that's my sense of it. And any time you get a rivalry like this, and nobody's gonna be laying down to the other team, and given everything that happened last year with Mason, Rudolph the piles, Garrett helmet swing and everything that Followed during the off season. You know the accusation. I think the Steelers would love to knock the Browns out of the playoffs with basic Rudolph in this setting, so I do not think this is going to be an easy game for Cleveland..

"SportsCenter. Dreams on hold. I'm Chris Smith. Cleveland was looking for their first playoff berth since 2002, but they follow the Jets 23 16 and ESPN. Brown's reporter, Jake Trotter knows what it means for Baker Mayfield LEGACY It's beautiful. The brown back into the playoffs as a quarterback after the 30 different starting quarterbacks they've had contact in 1999. I mean, you basically I want to say, Submit your legacy, but you definitely Gonna be somebody that talked about for a long time in Cleveland and on the others, you know, on the other other side of it if you lose to the Steelers again in a game that matters You know that's going to be part of the resonate as well. This is a huge opportunity for Baker to put a pretty big explanation point on what has been, you know, a breakout sterling year for him. In season three. The Browns take on the 12 3 Steelers next Sunday in Emerald City behind a staff defense. Seattle held the Rams of just three field goals in a 29 win. Seahawks punch their first NFC West title since 2016 and the tribe mergers nab their first three game win streak by edging the Broncos 1960. Just in her repair speaker Mayfield for the most passing touchdowns by a rookie and also joins Pat Mahomes as the only players in NFL history with 4000 yards passing in their 1st 14 starts. One more records without Travis Kelsey becomes the first tight end with a pair of 100 yard catch seasons and sets the single season record for yards by a tight end as Casey survives the Falcons 17 14 They have the number one seed in the FC.

I I mean I respect Kingsbury saying that been self out there right we've done so many disparate views different views on Murray from people we really respect here on the show you just heard Jake Trotter who covered coloring college now covers enough areas beyond say he will underestimate his accuracy and his ability as a passing quarterback with the guys that are often pressing on the show cover the NFL for a living come on here and say what I think which is a kind of them or that they are Sean Connery it's gonna be really interesting obviously is the which way it goes always offer in yesterday. if you are a believer in Kyler Murray you can point to the fourth quarter and you can say there it is there's the calamari if you're a doubt or you can say you know what they were three quarters years during the headlights and it was against map Patricia sorry Detroit fans alliance team there was a. disaster in terms of the commander of the end of the game. all the kids excess will more tell the better the game is by using it interesting how divergent views are on marine how divergent he was as a player in that first three quarters stretch version is overtime in the fourth quarter regulation number two it was a great performance for cowboys quarterback dak Prescott yeah he's so good is so good the cowboys.

"What they did the off season trading, Adele bolstering the defensive line drafting green Williams, and then what has happened to the AFC north and, and those teams in chipped away against a little bit. So. Are they the favorite to win the north FBI thinks they are at thirty five point five percent? You know, even they haven't wanted division title since eighty nine which is, I think the longest active drought. It would have to be right. Nine wins feels like sort of the barometer for them. And I look at the schedule. It's not it's, it's, it's not it's not the most difficult in the NFL by any means it feels like they can get their to ten wins. I mean, I think that that is there for them because of who they play. In the division. But also, you know how much better this team is compared to what where it was two years ago. Yeah. I was gonna ask you. I mean I, I was gonna actually with that. But I'll just get to it now. In terms of fan base expectations. This is a team that was seven eight and one last year there year removed from being an Owen sixteen team. And then, before that, I wanted fifteen team, this is eighteen is I've had a winning record since two thousand seven and before that two thousand to do think that a nine seven record will be satisfying result for Browns fans, if they don't make the playoffs or is it really just playoffs or bust sort of satisfy expectations heading into the season? I think it's a disappointment if they don't make the playoffs. I don't I don't think so I have to win the division but if they're not in the playoffs. It's a disappointment given everything that they have done. And you know, it's interesting when you look at this franchise and just be new to the scene. There's this weird combination of like just bridled excitement about what this team could become with a sense of a heavy dose of it, like ominous fatalism. And I think that on paper if you. If this was just like a team vacuum. It wasn't Cleveland, you know, we'd be saying, okay, this is a team that has a chance to make a deep run in the playoffs. But because it's the Browns there's always a caveat that well they look good. And I can go through a bunch of different numbers, that would suggest that they have a chance to be top ten authencity defensively this year without that much difficulty. And yet, I think that because it's Cleveland people are waiting for it to maybe not work out something to happen with ode L Baker at a regress or whatever. But I mean I to me given what they have on this team if they don't make the playoffs a disappointment. I agree I agree with you. I think there's some element of which is Cleveland, I know a couple years ago, I wrote about the Browns and their one or fifteen. And I said, hey, the numbers say this is the most likely team in football to improve and they went and sixteen. And And then then I. I. You know, may babies just maybe it's Cleveland. And maybe I'm just the numbers can account for that. But then the never say they were going to improve last year. It's hard to get worse than on sixteen and they went seventy one so. There. It feels unfair. Right. Like Baker Mayfield has not been a member of the Cleveland Browns for twenty years Oto Beckham has been there for a matter of months. I mean, there's, there's nothing to stick these guys with that should have any sort of stigma. They have been successful players at the college level and at the professional level. So you would figure that, that there's nothing to really define extent. But it does feel like they're going to have to make the playoffs for that to go away. And once they do you would figure if they're competitive team this year if they win the north if they make the playoffs, they'll be in good shape going forward. They have Baker for two more years at a relatively cheap cap number. They have a very competent general manager. It looks like in John Dorsey. The only thing you might look towards might have questions about, I guess would be the.

"But unfortunately that that move is made that the ship is sale. No Beckham is a member of the Cleveland Browns on the flip side of this, there certainly made a bunch of additions and most of them were pretty well known player. Sherwood Beckham's, your Sheldon, Richardson's, your VA Vernon's, is there, someone you think they added this off season whether was in free agency or in the draft that you think might have the opportunity to explode a little bit might have the opportunity to break out more than than Browns fans. Exactly right now, as I think about the roster and who might be oppressive for them this year. Well in order to acquire a deal they had to trade away first-round Ron pig. So they weren't able to draft anybody until the second round they moved up into greedy Williams out of LSU. And that was a guy that I think a lot of people felt like had a chance to go in the first round. I think he's a first round. Talent and he was one of the big storylines at minicamp. And you know, had to pick six in one situation and just made a lot of place was competitive, and I think they feel like within zone at one side in greedy on the other for that, for the next few years, they have a chance to have a formidable cornerback duo, which I think would really complement their defense align. Obviously very well. So I think really in the way that Denzel emerged for them early on last year. I think has the chance to do the same thing. And you know he's not a first round draft pick, but I think he has a chance to make that kind of impact for this team. I mean, you think about Cornerbacks and the NFL usually they do struggle as rookies even even your role Rivas guys who ended up being phenomenal players. They're pretty bad. Usually as rookies you look at Denzel award. He was excellent as a rookie cornerback. So you would hope that really Williams can deliver that, that same sort of impact, and then suddenly, you have to really impressive cornerback on the division where. You have wide receiver. So we're going to move around. You have your AJ grants. You have your Tyler Boyd Cincinnati. You have of course, Jewish Schuster nine Antonio Brown anymore, but juju over in Pittsburgh, who's going to be a player who can move around and sort of challenge you on both sides of the fields. I you know, you need to Cornerbacks went in the NFL at this point. And this was a team that they were getting by at the other corner facts about last year without Denzel award. But I think certainly the upside there and that's secondary is so much higher than it was even when year ago. It gives them more versatility to so they can they can play TJ Carey in nickel spot. They can play three corners feel confident and playing three corners more. So just having a guy like greedy at the other spot. I think will allow the overall unit to be better not just that particular one as well, urgent. Let's talk more about the Browns off season and their expectations for twenty nineteen in a moment. But first guys, finding a new job is a lot of work. And what if you had your own personal cruder to help.

"Third in Tennessee. Jacksonville was a division winner as recently as Yuriko almost a Super Bowl team out of the AFC. So the Texans finished anywhere from first to fourth, honestly, n. Any of those positions wouldn't shock me. And I think let me ask you this, if they do struggle, if they do finish third or fourth nece division, if they don't make the postseason new think they will be at least from the fans side of things there will be sort of a inquest towards moving on from Bill O'Brien and sort of blaming him for the issues with this ball team at don't have hired, Jim. Like, I don't know how many decisions he can actually make now in terms of who we can add the rest or just because where we are in the year. But if he's had what seven months of being in charge of personnel, and they don't win encountered near is now shown that maybe contracts don't really mattered him and you just want to win. I'm not saying that they will fire him to stay have a bad year, but certainly the fans that Houston will be calling for him. I think it's absolutely fair and the other issue that still has to be sort of decided this off season. That is the contracts that associating cloudy who. Franchise. I think that makes sense, given that they were not close to a long term deal someone you don't want to leave by any means. But there's been very little movement. It seems like in his contract negotiations this deal that I figured it'd be very tough to negotiate heading into this offseason and really has not looked any different over the course of last few months. Do you think they are any closer to a deal than they were two or three months ago and sort of what's the most likely outcome of the Geneva inclining situation, both in the short term for Houston in nine thousand nineteen and then in the long term. In fact, that they didn't regain Dreamin last year before the season, kind of tells me, how far apart decides her. I mean typically, that's when they extend guys, that's when you hook and got his big contract. Now, of course, Hopkinson very healthy and very consistent Connie hits of injury history beginning career. But he's missed his lung game in the past two seasons. So he's proven himself. He's proven how good he can be in the fact that they weren't ready to pay him, then tells me that key, perhaps wants more money than they're willing to give him now I'm sure that is for almost any contract negotiation. But, you know, he's probably looked at the number. That's who he'll MAC daughter earned that he wants that. Now, I don't believe he's the caliber, he's shown that purview those players, but they look at the money for, you know the year he was drafted in the position he plays. And then that's the number out there right now. If the Texans don't wanna play that I just I don't see this getting done certainly before the. July his kids up on everybody. Took this. You're on the franchise. I think a hold out for training camp. I don't think he'll miss regular season games and more than a million dollars a game. I think he'll be out there, especially if he wants to contract, and they'll have to cap space to franchise them again. Now he doesn't want to be here because he's frustrated about that. You know, maybe you try and trade them. I think they wanna the field more than they'd be willing. They want anyone for him. So I don't know. I, I just up this point signed it hard to believe that he'll sign a long term deal in Houston based on the negotiations offense afar. Absolutely. I mean, they think about even even beyond that sort of top tier of Cleal MAC and von Miller. Look at Trey flowers, a guy who know very underrated player with the patriots, someone who was very valuable in the playoffs..

"But there's a reason that everyone else has general manager now, if because here goes your guy, and you believe that you can get him after the season. And there's no point in hiring temporary Jenner voter. Can't do anything really until tan cuff in the writings on the wall that they would then if because hero became available. They would then try and hire him in fire this temporary higher. So right now, looks like going garden to be in charge of personnel. Jack Easterby who came over from New England so season he charged football operations Chris Olsen was doing contracts, which are does now. And then, and that's an error all our McNair. But to me, what's interesting does that the day, the. The first press conference we had after dragging was fired. We talked to build bone, and he said, someone asked him about, like, do you feel like you're going to get more time out of the situation, basically? And he said, I don't even think about power, but you look at this Bill O'Brien is in charge of all of the personnel. I mean essentially use the general manager right? I mean in all practical matters, it seems like he would be the general manager in that situation. And I, I will just say, I find it hard to believe that Bill O'Brien has not thought about power when it comes to the football operations of an NFL team, let alone this very particular NFL team. I mean, do you think. It seems like there has been some criticism levied towards Brian that he may be difficult to work with. Do you think that's fair, given what's happened over the past few years in Houston, or is he just someone who you know, maybe demands a lot out of the people he works with? I probably, you know, everyone looks differently with other people now someone asks them about that. And he said, I mean depends who you ask right? Like I try and be, you know, to work with but I know on demanding sensually, and he said that when thing he feels like he needs to work on his communication. So if you read between the lines there, maybe you know, he feigned didn't have a great relationship didn't communicate well towards the end. Maybe that's reason why. They felt like each other were difficult to work with. But yeah, I like you don't believe that he has never thought power and thinking about the only other team in the league, I believe right now that has the head coach of the general federal managers came person. They'll check in New England. And certainly it seems like Bill. Bell track is someone who over the years is sort of earned that, right? Right. Like, like you can't really argue with Bill Bill check success, but Bill O'Brien. They've been successful franchise, while he's been there, generally, but not necessarily the best with personnel and not necessarily a team that has been quite as successful as the patriots have been burnt, Sarah. Let's talk about the rest of the Texans off season, the and clowney contract situation in a moment, but first guys, they say a great offense starts with a great defense, and that's especially.

"NFL teams in the midst of mini camps, there's work to be done in Cleveland, because the bar is now set high Browns running back to Johnson declining to back off his request for a trade Baker Mayfield was asked about Johnson situation. That's something that we've been dealing with for a while. We have guys that want to be here. They'll show that voice that obviously, you know, he's gonna handle his stuff how he wants, but they're either on this trainer, you're not it's moving. You can get out the way or you can join us, so it is what it is Baker Mayfield. Putting it right out there earlier on ESPN radio. ESPN Brown's reporter Jake Trotter. I don't think that they were surprised they know Baker like we do. And you gotta give Baker credit in that. Can ever been afraid of competition in? So if you guys on his team, maybe maybe Siwei wanna go to different situation because, you know, they brought it another player take issue with that. He said something interesting today, you know, last year, he was rookie. He wasn't the starter out of camp. I don't think he felt like he could be himself all the way. Eight field LA. Now, this at the same Baker, we thought Oklahoma, who is planting the flag at the shoe and a high state, and this is quickly becoming in and like you said today, whether it was Gerald McCoy former fellow sooner or Duke Johnson, you'd better get on the train because it's moving either way with and that was his quote today. We know those expectations are what the Browns of wonderful long. When you've been irrelevant in the National Football League. The fact that people talking about them as this team going into the season, you know, a lot of Cleveland Browns fans feeling that but how has it been hearing that from the Browns players that these expectations are going to be there and they fall short of that is going to be the same old Browns that people wanna talk about once again? I think that feels that the team may be Asians. The pressure on day today credit, I had a chance that, you know, just talk to them on the side before he spoke to the general media. We haven't done anything yet. They went they want last year at everybody thinks that they almost won the Super Bowl last season. Cleveland because like you said, Freddie, they hadn't won anything in the eighties. So I, but I do think that, that the expectations are real the pressure's gonna be real on paper, guys team on paper, it about talent that get at least an air division. So I think they have a chance, Pittsburgh and maybe some other teams you know, having some interesting off season. I think there's a window for them to do something. They haven't done it a long time. And so they're going to feel that it'll lose and week greeted upset or. There's a turnover late game and they lose again they, they, they, they probably should win. It's gonna be interesting to see how this team respond to because they're gonna be a ton of focus on them. When those moments come out, Freddie kitchens, doing with all of this. I think you've got a good personality for this team. You know, Freddie is, is down to earth. He's low key, you know, he's not gonna get worked up there. You know, specially in, in, in media, daddy, I think that. From my perspective. His personality is a good for the dominant personality player personalities that they have on this team. So I mean there's a lot of pressure on him for rookie head goats. You don't usually feed that, but they have the talent to do some damage. So there's gonna be a lot of pressure on him to, to Nash this all together and, and, and get this team going, and if they struggle early again, it'll be. You know what the what the blowback will be on him, but I think that you the chance to be a really good fit for this team in his personality.

Because I wanna make sure my body only make sure I'm getting back light. I wanna give me a little understandably because ball. A ball from NFL quarterback in over a year.

"And Manny Diaz and bunch of the players down there to get a feel for what's going on there. Dan, Enos is under a lot of pressure already right out of the gate because quarterback has been the quintessential issue at Miami. The way that it has been at Florida in when you look at the players that are on the roster right now Tate Martell. He's got his eligibility. Got his waiver transferring from Ohio State Nicosea Perry is still there. Dan, Enos really hasn't been thrilled with what he's seen out of his quarterbacks yet this spring. I think they're still trying to figure out and get a grasp for the type of offense. They're going to be running completely different from what they did under Mark richt. When he was there running the plays a lot more tempo. Lot more spread. And those are the types of things that Miami should be doing considering the playmakers that they have on that team. So there is optimism with Manny Diaz now taking over. But we don't know what that quarterback situation is going to look like, and I don't necessarily. Know that we'll have a whole lot of answers after their spring game. It's next Saturday. It's Hyun Orlando. They wanna cut and get a walk-through going in the stadium where they're going to be opening the season up against Florida. And we'll see what happens to me the question for Miami. Just the way it is at Florida state and Florida stability at quarterback, and whether that's going to be enough to get this team to compete for championships. Neuter. Thank you as always a fun to have you on totally. We are talking about the college football season. All ready a great to have Andrea with this. You're listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Jalen hurts. Why why is this interesting? Another other string talking about Jalen, hurts course, he is in Oklahoma now, and we welcome in Jake Trotter who's written about Jalen hurts unprecedented. Spring in Norman just never gets old talking about this young. Then Jake, thank you very much for joining us. We knew this would be a big deal. But it seems like it's even a bigger deal than we originally thought. Good afternoon. Hey, Paul how you doing? Yeah. It's so different than the Baker Mayfield. Are Kyla Marie transfers in that when Baker got here, he was still an unknown. He was the big twelve freshman of the year. But he was at Texas Tech. He lost the starting job. Nobody thought he was going to come to Oklahoma and beat out Trevor Knight and win. Tyler Marie arrived as ballyhoo to recruit as he was coming out of Allen, Texas. You know, he sat behind Mayfield for two years the difference between those two guys one is bins. And Jalen hurts is that Jalen is the center of attention already. He's been here. A few weeks and already he's the guy that some of the younger players already looking to which is why use the word unprecedented at Oklahoma powerhouses like Oklahoma, Alabama. Clemson you don't have a new guy show up and be the face of the team..

The lady vols program has many responsibilities to this university to this community to the state and to be quite honest with you to all of women's basketball. We also have a responsibility to our alumni, I want our lumps to be proud of who we are. I want them to be involved in continue to support this team. We're going to do that. We're going to do that.

It's indescribable. And extremely special. I'm ready to get to work. Thank you guys. Well, we have been listening to very interesting an uplifting press conference from Knoxville coach Fulmer introducing Kelly, and we will take a break. Get your reaction to all of this right here on a Wednesday afternoon. Listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Welcome back here. And let's continue very interesting conversation up there in Knoxville, but we are going to change gears to Jalen hurts. Why why was this interesting and other spring talking about Jalen, hurts course, he is an Oklahoma now, and we welcome in Jake Trotter who's written about Jalen hurts unprecedented. Spring in Norman, it just never gets old talking about this young. Then Jake, thank you very much for joining us. We knew this would be a big deal. But it seems like it's even a bigger deal than we originally thought. Good afternoon. Hey, Paul how you doing? Yeah. It's so different than the Baker Mayfield are Kayla. Marie transfers in that when Baker got here, he was still an unknown. He was the big twelve freshman of the year. But he was at Texas Tech. He lost the starting job. Nobody thought he was going to come to Oklahoma n beat out Trevor Knight and win. Tyler Marie arrived as ballyhooed of a recruit as he was coming out of Allen, Texas. He sat behind Mayfield for two years the difference between those two guys one is men's and Jalen hurts is that Jalen is the center of attention already. He's been here. A few weeks in already. He's the guy that some of the younger players are already looking to which is why use the word unprecedented at Oklahoma powerhouses like Oklahoma, Alabama. Clemson you don't have a new guy show up and be the face of the team. But that's the case in Norman right now. I mean that is so strange. But then again, Jalen hurts has been the leader of the crimson tide leading them to lofty ranking. So he's prepared for it. But. You and I both watched a number of players moving into new positions, especially from a graduate transfer. And they have a difficult time adjusting, especially from chemistry standpoint. What has allowed Jalen to stand out? Well, I mean, you go twenty-six into at Alabama as a starter that commands respect, I think the way that Jalen handled himself in the national championship game the way he handled himself last season losing the job to two and then coming back in rescuing the tide in that SEC championship game. I think all of that Shane beamer, the former assistant at Georgia..

"I did Greg McElroy radio show a couple of days ago. And he had a really interesting point about this. And he said, you know, if I'm Jalen hurts the yet he knows Mike Loxley at Maryland. And yet he knows he no set Alabama. Remember, those guys didn't give him didn't name him the starter. I wonder if there's any any little not animosity but a little bit. Also, you going someplace else, and so maybe the familiarity breeds content part factored into that. I don't I don't know if it did at all. But that was an interesting point. He brought up. Yeah. I mean, I think it's just you're right. It makes total sense. Why wouldn't you wanna go? Learn from a coach who's who's coached the past two. Highs winner's score a lot of points contend for national championship. But I will say that the bar now is awfully high for him. Right. You know, people are now expecting Jalen hurts to go. I saw his Heisman. Odds are already extremely high. He could he goes to like Miami. And leaves them to ten wins next year. He's kind of a conquering hero. The only way. I think that his one year we considered a. Success is to at the very least nothing has to win the Isan, but he probably have to go to New York or else. He's not on the same level as Baker and Cuyler and he's got to get them back to the playoffs. If he doesn't then that's a step down. Yeah. Yeah. That's going to be fun to watch. It really will. Because of just how dynamic player was remember? He was the SEC offense player of the year as of true freshman, and he played some really good defenses. What's he gonna do against the big twelve? Yeah. I think he gets a bad rap because of the way he got you couldn't get more of a humbling emotion than to be ventured halftime of the national championship game. So I think he got retroactively characterizes a not that agree a quarterback? He's very he's very he was a very good college quarterback as a freshman sophomore by the time. He and by the time he suits up opening week next year it'll been another year and a half since that game of development now in Lincoln Riley system, and we even saw a little bit. Obviously, the SEC championship games it's entirely possible that he is a much better passer now than when we last saw him as the regular starter. Yeah. Like, I said, I think it's going to be fun to watch Stu. There's an interesting subplot to me for this, especially with Oklahoma and the. Bac situation little plug for my own game. If you're around Saturday wanna watch some college football guys might crew at f s one is doing NFL PA bowl sit as a game probably for late round picks and free agents. UNC Jake Browning from Washington the handful other guys recognize, but I said that to get to this. So I was out at the Rose Bowl for for practice at mid week. And in the morning. I'd seen Jake Trotter from dot com had reported that Oklahoma was blocked gang. Austin KENDALL from transferring as grad transfer within conference there was interest with him at West Virginia. And I as soon as I saw that I was like this is not gonna end. Well, it's gonna look bad for Lincoln, Riley, coaches and schools who blocked especially at grad transfer. You know, it's only a matter of time before they relent once it gets out on on social media, and they start taking publicity beating and I don't know by the time. I got home. I wanna say it was like maybe three o'clock in the afternoon. I'd see or. For enjoyment? Schroder report that Oklahoma had released him, and he was free to go. And you know, I I mean, I don't know. I just think coaches have to eat no matter how much the situation awkward for them. Whether they play the school or not, and they gotta realize the different age. This is a particularly infuriating one for so many reasons the whole the whole NCAA rule change that brought about a transfer portal was intended specifically to to be done with this..

"Whether you read what he says or hear what he says or just how he conducted himself and Alabama. This is good for Spencer rattler the high school quarterback signed by Oklahoma. He was ruled ineligible for the last month of his high school season for violating school policy. Rattler could use a mentor like Jalen hurts and some of that personality and character rubbing off on a young quarterback is a very good thing. So I think it serves a lot of purposes there, the other portion of this transfer with Jalen hurts came on the other side from the Oklahoma side where you had Austin KENDALL who sat behind transfer Baker Mayfield sappy hind transfer. Kyle Murray had a redshirt season mixed in there, and he decided he wanted to transfer after he graduated because get this. He wants to play. It's so weird. But being a being a grad transfer he could leave him play right away while the. A big twelve schools can prevent interconference transfers from being eligible right away. So they did that initially with Austin KENDALL. Jake Trotter had the had the story yesterday. And then eventually they some social media pressure, and and they relented and now he can go to West Virginia and Jake Trotta reports he's expected to be there by the end of the week. But I haven't what was your reaction to that side of that story with quarterback? Austin kendall. Why I was struck by exactly what you said you cannot do that anymore. I think the pendulum has swung so sharply toward the the most benefits for student athletes coaches in administrations can't get away with that anymore. It was always always blocked those kind of transfers because they could and and say has loosened the rules in favor of the players. The public has come around to firmly behind the players and make Oklahoma found out pretty quickly. That wasn't a good thing for them to do. George Schroeder USA today was the first to break the story yesterday saying that they had relented said the school worked through its concerns over a transfer within the big twelve to arrive at its decision essentially saying, yeah, they did that on their own. Yeah. I would've I would've taken out the trash if my wife had asked me to. I mean, you need some social media pressure here, and they got it. And I just wonder why these schools continue to do this. Yeah. It's like I said they did it for years because they could. But the look of you blocking a quarterback from leaving who you've basically said, we don't want. You know, we don't want you because we're bringing in Jalen hurts and we brought in Kyla Murray. And we've brought in Baker Mayfield and on the same day. Jalen hurts announces he's committing to Oklahoma. We're going to play their you're blocking Austin KENDALL from chance to play. It's a horrible. Look glad they corrected it. But here's what I tweeted last night. If you're not gonna pay the players and in these schools, and they presidents are digging in on that. And I don't know how much longer they can dig it on that. You can't go near the transfer restrictions or or try to play that card. The transfer restrictions are getting looser and looser, and we're gonna talk about Justin fields in a minute. And some of these others and the the schools waiting into that water is very dangerous now because. If you don't wanna pay the players, I get it. And it's been that way for a long time. But you can also dig in on this restrictive transfer issue because you're going to lose if you're not gonna lose from a rules perspective. You're certainly gonna lose a perception perspective. And that's what happened with Oklahoma. So I'm glad Austin KENDALL a to move on and looking forward to the West Virginia trip to Oklahoma this year. Yes, go ahead. You brought up social media pressure. And and take out the trash as your wife tweet at you. And she wants you to take the trash out. It's funny. She has a when we were when I was kind of neck deep and Twitter, maybe a year ago. She did send me a direct message on Twitter to to do something because she knew she could. Tax me through that. And that was what I really need to put this down. I've cut back my tweets..

That's certainly along the biggest stories if not well, it's the biggest story. What's not quite not quite a find another one bigger? Jalen hurts has been that Goto off season story who and where would he end up, and we know now, so we'll certainly talk about that.

He is a former chief of staff of the army. They will join the college football playoff selection committee. We'll talk to our see a little bit later on Martel Tate. Martell appeals to the NC double A for nineteen eligibility. Trying to go to Miami. From Ohio State wants the top player in the country top quarterback. Meanwhile, wide receiver Jeff Thomas decides against transfer after the coaching change. He is staying at Miami. We think. You are all over in the SEC. Rig Barnes does it again blows at Arkansas second-half last night at Thomson bowling. And of course, of course, Barnes wasn't happy. One hundred six eighty seven found a lot of fall to find this team is unbelievable watch the good bit of that game. And I realized Virginia will stay claim and Duke and Michigan but hard to find a better team right now. Then the university of Tennessee. We'll talk a lot about the Jalen hurts situation today. Kosher phone calls at eight five five four to seven to eight five. Jake Trotter covers that part of the region part of the country for ESPN. And we welcome Jake to the program. It's going to be a busy afternoon in Norman, Jake. Thank you so much. So give us the skinny had Jalen hurts decide to end up, a sooner. Yeah. Paul, you know, he visited Oklahoma last week in inbetween visits to Maryland in Miami. And I think really at the end of the day. Oklahoma offered him something that Miami. And Maryland couldn't which is shot to get to the playoff shot potentially to play Alabama in the playoff in relationships, obviously with Loxley Maryland and at Miami as well with Dan. But I think the opportunity to be back on the national stage at Oklahoma. And then just the track record that Lincoln Riley has had not only with quarterbacks but with transfer quarterbacks you remember Cuyler Murray and Baker Mayfield. We're both transfers with what Oklahoma has coming back with hearts now running the show the Sooners having a legitimate chance to be right back in the playoff for the fourth time in five years, Jake. We've seen. Jalen lose his starting position to to. We we've seen him look at other scenarios. What is the situation right now depth, chart wise at OU? Well has of last week Austin kindle, who's going to be a fourth year junior would have been the projected starter. But once kindle found out that hurts and Oklahoma were interested in one another kindle in enter the transfer portal, actually visited Auburn this week. A West Virginia is at the top of his list. But right now, ironically, Oklahoma, while pursuing a graduates for quarterback has blocked kindle from being eligible immediately for the twenty one thousand nine season kindle could still transfer there. But he'd have to sit out the year focal home didn't release him. And then he would play his last year in twenty twenty but other than that, it's wide open and really hurts offers Oklahoma perfect bridge quarterback but Sweeney Mayfield and Murray Murray eras and Spencer rattler who's the top quarterback recruit in the country coming in. He doesn't arrive until the summer. So it would have been really difficult for him to step in and be the starter right away. Now with hurts. There for a season rattler can learn Riley system for a year, they can be patient with him. And then in twenty twenty he conceivably would have a chance to take over for hurts and Oklahoma just right down. The line would be a pretty talented at quarterback. Why is Lincoln rally trying to block kindle from going? Elsewhere..

"jake trotter" Discussed on Championship Drive

"This is campus conversation now, here's your host, Ivan Mazel. Hey there. Welcome back to campus conversation Wednesday, January ninth twenty nineteen. I've in MS L. Here's the man just said this is our season ending show. We're going to put a bow on the twenty eighteen season. Look back at our favorite moments. We'll catch up on the news that we have ignored while we were gushing over Clemson and Alabama in that order over the last few days. We'll look back fondly at the cliff Kingsbury era at USC. And joining me to do that crisslow. How're you doing see low? I haven't a great good to be with you guys. You guys would include Jake Trotter. How're you doing Jake didn't? Well, I've and by the way, here's like to me. I don't know what you think Ryan. But the podcast today team was yesterday. Just looking at the rosters. I'm gonna agree with I guess, I'm a to platoon guy. Then as both shows that's Ryan McGee. So as as we love to say, we have a slow talking show for you a lot to get to. We are going to take a long look at the twenty eighteen season. Give you our best moments of the year in various forms, but first let's get out of the tunnel. Time to come out of the tunnel on campus conversation. So what we missed while we were focused on Santa Clara. Let's take it. A lot of Sistan coaching news cliff Kingsbury who had been at USC has offensive coordinator for a matter of days takes the Arizona Cardinals head coaching job. If I were a better reporter, I would be able to tell you the last. F B S head coach to be fired with a losing record to be hired as an NFL head coach after the same season, nothing immediately springs to mind, but. Jake. I'm I mean, you've watched Clint you keep an eye on the big twelve you. You've watched cliff at Texas Tech. We all like cliff we all recognize he's a talented offensive coach. He he did wonders at Houston. Texas Tech certainly scored a lot of points thought the object was to win games. I don't know. What what do you make of this? Well, he's the first coach from the college ranks to be hired by fell franchise. It's twenty fourteen Bill Brian would from Penn State to the Texans. You know, I think the key is going to be candidate pair him with a Wade Phillips type similar to McVay with the Rams, you know, he's going to need, you know, that type of defensive mind the fence of coordinator to just kinda run the defense, but cliffs development, and I for quarterbacks is undeniable they're five guys in the NFL that that he he coached. I mean, remember case keenum, Houston, I know Johnny Manziel fleet flamed out. But he was a first round draft pick of the Browns. Baker Mayfield was there for a year. And then I mean, people forget you Patrick Mahomes, only to college offers other than Texas Tech. We're from Houston and rice, it's not like this guy was a big time prospect coming out of White House, Texas, but cliff understood in recognize the. The potential and talent that Mahomes had in. Now, he might be one of the two or three or four best quarterbacks in the entire fell. So I did with Josh Rosen there Zona that has a chance to be. I think a chance to be a really good pairing. If they can find the right guy to to to handle and take care of the defense. Adam schefter. I'm sorry for minute. I thought we were doing an NFL podcast. But but I I asked the question and Jake David very good answer. The other and Klay Hilton. Now is of course in the market for an offense coordinator again cliff had been a really good higher for him to address what else the Trojans? And and now he's got to start looking all over again. The other big assistant coaching news ceelo is over the last few days. Not only have we seen guys leaving Michigan. But now Georgia. With. Jim Chaney going to Tennessee offense coordinator, that means Karbi smart must replace both coordinators since Mel Tucker is now the head coach, Colorado..
