"From Josh out on the bills are in control now. You know what? We've lost two basis university, but we're not gonna hit the panic button offensively. We're not very good right now. We're not playing good football and it starts with me. So you know, we all need to look in the mirror. Like I said, start to me and I understand that we all need to be better. Bills radio on the call Better off this burger after an ugly, ugly effort. Bills win 26 15 stealer side of things first. A bad situation of Pittsburgh because the offense isn't good enough to carry this team and this team needs to be carried right now, because defensively they've got a lot of injuries and they got gassed at times yesterday last night by the Bills. Obviously better off this burger is turning into a pumpkin to the end of the season after the season long injury and surgery that he suffered through last year. A 38 years old. Brought this Burger was very good early in the season kind of reminiscent of Peyton Manning's final year, where early in the year he was looking pretty good. And then later on in the year, it got worse and worse and worse to the point where In the playoff run. He basically had to get shot up with painkillers to get a couple of throws out early and then he would kind of freeze up in the second half and just hope that his defense could hold on. Now that Broncos defense did, but that Broncos defense was healthy. That Broncos defense was deep that Broncos defense was historically good. This dealer's defense dealt with a lot of injuries. And while they are very, very good, and they've got Pro Bowl caliber players almost every level. They can't pitch a shout out every single game and that's what they're being asked to do. Last night, Ben Roethlisberger was in no type of rhythm. Absolutely no rhythm. He threw for a couple of interceptions. He threw 37 times for Ah 100. 87 yards. It's hard to throw 37 times and throw for only 187 yards. It's all dink and dunk. It's all underneath. And the Steelers could not run the football. James Connor had 18 yards. Jalen Samuel said 15 yards, many still had 14 yards. They were awful on the ground, so the Steelers right now are shriveling up. This is now their third bad game in a row. The game against the Ravens on a Wednesday the game against the gets to Washington last Monday, and now this one. They're just getting worse at the worst possible time. Which means there's an opening right now the A F C for somebody to slip in there and be the team to challenge the Chiefs. And maybe that is the bills. Maybe that is the bills because last night was a big boy victory, even though the Steelers are playing well. But the bills just have a bit of the situation. It's an organization that's been on hard times for the better part of 20 years. They don't play on Sunday night football. They don't play against the best on Sunday night football. They don't have the world or at least the nation's eyes watching and they haven't won the division in 25 years. So to get the wind last night was huge. It was huge and once again Josh Allen is proving that he can be Part of a winner that he could be an important part of a winner. There was a couple of great throws last night. Stefan digs at 130 yards worth of worth of passing yards. And Zack lost it enough on the ground. And the Bills got it done. It wasn't beautiful. It wasn't a pull away. Beautiful win, but it was kind of like a workman like physical win by the bills, which is what who they kind of are And a couple of things bring to mind Number one. I have been a big time Josh Allen Doubter for a long time. I am turning my tune on that. I think he's been really good this season far more consistent in previous years and showed some real maturity a time this season where he knows as long as he doesn't screw it up. The bills are gonna be fine, and he's not screwing it up and make it a couple of big throws per game. Number two. Gosh, the bills hit a home run by trading for Stefan digs. That was critical of that as well. I was critical of that. So what are you doing? Traded away. Draft picks for malcontent likes to find digs in Minnesota. And for digs. What you think it's gonna be that much better going to Buffalo Number one, You're playing outdoors. The past. The game's gonna be grand a little. It's gonna be a little bit tougher than playing indoors in Minnesota Number two, You're going to a young quarterback who's completely erratic. You think Josh Alan's going to get you to the Pro Bowl? And yet I've been proven wrong. That trade has been phenomenal for them. It is given Alan the perfect target and security blanket. And a game breaker, the passing at the receiving position. And the bills have turned into a dual threat. Where They can. Run the football and they can make big plays. And so the bills create a difficult mismatch for a lot of their opponents. They're accountable. The professional they are Sean McDermott there. Sean McDermott Shadow Who McDermott Days is who this team is. They've taken on his personality, and they're 10 and three They're 10 and three and they just gotta win over what we thought was the second best team in the A. F. C. If the chief of the best human football, which I think that they are It bears asking the question now with three weeks to play. Are the Steelers still the second best team of the A. F. C. And that I don't know, because last night The two contenders played head to head. The bills beat the Steelers, and it wasn't necessarily close. It was an ugly first quarter. And not a pretty first half, but The bills found.

"But if he can do that, then you'll be that's for the next as for the next one case. And he he didn't he was slightly worse against top defenses. But not enough that I'm going to be concerned about it. He'll be so interesting in next year strength. I will be perfectly happy taping. Taking James Connor as a running back one. I agreed in Donio on on this team. Maybe the offense isn't as powerful. But I think that Big Ben will find a way he I mean, Pittsburgh has found a way without Antonio Brown. Being the number one guy with Big Ben like it was Hines ward. And then it was Mike Wallis juju can step up in my opinion and fill most of the offensive gap from Antonio Bryant at least for fantasy purposes. Only Zeke you'll Elliot had more games over one hundred and eighty yards from scrimmage than James Connor did Connor had three of those. Over one eighty those are week winning weeks. Honestly, the only concern for me for James Connor is Jalen Samuels, if they go a different, and they think Jalen Samuel is. They're going to spell him in far more as a pass catcher that wouldn't be Mike Tomlin style. But it's at least one of those check marks in the unknown. If you're going in on a first round pick for James corner Mellon, Gordon came in at number seven, but it's consistency. Ranking number three. Nobody's ninety two percent. Good forty-two percent, great. He was fantastic only tied Gurley as more total touchdowns over the last three seasons than Melvin Gordon who has thirty eight over that time. He's just unbelievable. If here's the truth. You want the truth on Melvin, Gordon, if he's healthy and active? He's one of the best three.
"jalen samuel" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"On KABC are sixty sports leader. Very wonderful time of year. Of course. How many people are actually out there? Scrambling right now as I'm talking trying to get presence because last minute details before you have all the family over you have a family over friends that are you going somewhere? Both both you're doing split. Yep. Like four Christmases. Yep. Polar polar said his wife's out shopping. I gotta go out shopping tomorrow. Anyway, kmby are is the number coming up in just a few minutes. Mattie maiocco is going to hop on with us. We'll talk about the forty Niners matchup with the bears this weekend week sixteen on the schedule for the NFL and the one game that obviously with all the playoff implications going on. I'm very much interested to see what's happening in the AFC with both the chargers and the chiefs in there's a lot of scenarios that can happen. I mean, the patriots for the first time in what nine years getting a first round. Bye could absolutely miss that the Steelers why still don't really know who they are. I mean, they can get the AFC north with a win. And the Baltimore Ravens losing to the chargers on Saturday, which is absolutely a possibility. So we could see the Steelers when the AFC north. I mean, you look at the ravens they can get the AFC north if they have a better record than the Pittsburgh Steelers. That's the last couple of games in the way that they can do it is if they went out and Pittsburgh loses one of the next two games. Now, obviously, they've got a huge match of this weekend against the saints. I think the Steelers do lose that game. But then they got the Bengals the end of the week. So it really depends. I think on what the ravens do on was it Saturday against against the chargers. So it's going to be so so interesting right now, this is my favorite time of year in the NFL with all the playoff scenarios going on heading into wildcard week in which I just love. Yeah. You look at if they're able to run the ball little bit the Steelers. There. Okay. He just fine. They will be did Jacksonville game was the only one where they really ran poorly and won a game. And that was based on some stupid plays by Bortles and in the defense. Whatever man for twenty six yards that game seventy five against the Broncos in a loss sixty five versus the chargers in a loss forty versus the raiders in a loss. And then one fifty eight last week against the patriots. They win. Right. I mean, so if they put up some some yards on the ground during their six game win streak falcons Bengals Browns ravens Panthers. They went one thirty one one twelve one one thirteen one thirty eight that was a huge deal for them. If they could run if James Connor in now, Jalen Samuel, Jalen Samuels. I if they can, you know feed off each other and make this a two headed monster in the backfield for them. That was I mean what a clutch win for the Steelers against the patriots last week, and Jalen Sammy's had so much to do with that what he had one hundred and forty on the ground. Unbelievable. I mean unbelievable. You wonder what the pressures like for a kid like that twenty two years old? There's like there doesn't seem like it doesn't seem like it at all doesn't appear to be any pressure forms, very confident. I love the way that he's been talking about how you know. Steelers say Jan Jalen same. He sees himself as a true running back. He's not scared of the NFL the game's not too fast for him. I love the attitude. I mean with Connor and Samuel's the confidence that both of them have in the backfield is amazing again, I still don't know exactly who the Pittsburgh Steelers are the last couple of years has been kind of weird with the drama and Tomlin locker room, but as far as the running backs go there, they're solid. I agree with you one hundred percent if they could run the ball. They absolutely could take the north into the postseason and then from there. It's just dice roll for everybody. Yeah. I mean going back on it with. With the two of James, Connor, Jalen Samuels. Yeah. There really isn't pressure on them. And the reason why I say that is because you have Antonio Brown. You have you have juju Smith Schuster, you have Ben Rothlisberger. So it's not all on you. You know, you you don't have to worry about the the outside stuff. You worry about doing your job to your job. Okay. I hope in rely on my teammates to pick me up because I have legit players behind you. I think that is a big key in the whole thing with those young running backs. They don't have to do everything. Just play your butts off do your jobs if it doesn't take care of itself doing that. You have other guys to pick you up. It is not all on you where I feel like at times, you know, the Steelers in general relied so much on Levy on bell. Yes. That when it came down to it when when everything broke down, and he wasn't performing everything crumbled. Yeah. I'm with you a hundred. Ben was going all that stuff. That's what happened. I mean. You're you're right. That's exactly what happened what he crumbled. He was like he's like if you if you imagine if you mentioned a table, it seemed like lady on bell was two legs that table. And if he went down the whole thing was slide in decline, and it was it was an opposite ends is on the same sags. Exactly. Exactly. And it was it was really weird to see again, the the identity of the Steelers still remains a mystery to me even week sixteen. Let me ask you this question before we move onto Matt maiocco when it comes to the Houston Texans. Obviously they started out own three. Now, they have a chance to win the AFC south with a win or an Indianapolis Colts laws. No, the colts again who have a lot. I mean as far as the equations go for a lot of teams getting into the postseason for some reason. The Indianapolis Colts were always are always involved. They're playing the giants is weakened the colts are the Houston Texans. Do you think that they are forever? Taking on the eagles right now. The eagles are still fighting their way. And they still are not mathematically eliminated. But starting our own three then go and nine one the rest of the way. I mean this Texans team if they can create steam like they have going into the post season, they can be very dangerous in the AFC. That's what I think is so interesting about both conferences cab. I mean, you look at the regular season looks like the AFC was pretty much locked up. But we knew who was going to be good in the AFC and the NFC in the regular season is all jumbled. Now, it gets to the postseason. These AFC match of. I don't know who the hell is gonna come out on top. I think it all resides on. Lamar miller. I know it's not really that big of a take on that sex. But because he hurt his ankle the other day and Alfred blue he's been. Backfield. There's there's two constants on offense aside to Shawn Watson. Yup. India dre Hawkins because the one thing that we can't say that is definitive on the defensive side is they're going to get to the to the quarterback. They're gonna get to them with JJ watched avian cloudy. The guys inside they are phenomenal. They have. You know, maybe a yeah. I would think a Super Bowl defense. I'm with you on that. I mean, they're taking on a Philadelphia Eagles team. Like, I said that is not mathematically eliminated. I mean to get the NFC east think about this situation right now, the shrine to foles, I have Chris long swine, Nick foles guys are lighting candles in there. So great Chris long from the eagles has a shrine Nick foles in his locker. It's an eight by ten photo of Nick foles. And then an autograph copy of Nick foles book with a bunch of canned scandals around it guy. They love him in Philly. Don't they teammates love, Nick foles? They do because they know where where he stands, right? They know that even though he led them to..

"So you don't know stay tuned, but keep an eye on. That. Okay. Good news right there for potentially good news for juju. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh likely to be without James counter. Matthew there James Jalen Samuel, probably catapult them to fifteen money back plate. Right. I'm as I've been twelve this week. So, you know, forty touches the last two week, you know, obviously had one hundred seventy two total yards last week against patriots. So Jalen Samuels has been nothing short of terrific in the last two weeks. So I think you know, just in terms of volume and that offense it's going to be a high scoring game the saints. And so, you know, involved the passing game. Didn't you know, a lot of people thought, oh, Ridley will get some work last week against the patriots, actually got less work. Right. So I mean, Jalen shambles proved he could be it. So just he's he's he's the guy and in a high scoring game. Yeah. I have missed the top twelve guy, and I will say this. If if you play on a site that allows Jalen famous to qualify at tight end. I mean, you know, I think Travis Kelsey is the only titan I would prefer over. Jalen Samuels this week again, if you play in a league that's going to affect a lot of championships get enough soapbox about that whole thing. But. Anyway, I it just because I know there are people that that that don't play at ESPN that listened to us. And so I'll just say that if you're wondering where I would rank Jalen Simmons was tight end this week. He would be my second number two tighten I know the saints have really struggled of late. But again guys remember when they played home they play early. Well, we talked about this on Tuesday. Start your Saint who are six and a half point favorites. I got the saints covering this game. They're so good at home. They really are. And yet, I still think Pittsburg Pittsburg shows up here. I don't think road Benz, I think I think the Steelers cover I don't think the saints beaten by a touchdown. Okay. The of SARS time game. I'm giving it to the saints. Daniel what do you think the saints as well? Okay. The chiefs go to Seattle on Sunday a place to be this real quickly. My first real quickly of the of the day. That's what you should have done aboard bet on its how many real quickly I've got I kind of like Vance McDonald's. A in this one, by the way. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Saint saints allow two hundred ninety four passing yards. Second most yards per tempt when they are at home because the saints are so good at home teams have to throw against them as well. He's got a touchdown or at least five targets in sixth the last seven games. And so he's going to get some opportunity in this one. Okay. So again, like just is so brutal. He's my number nine tight end this week chiefs at Seahawks. Chiefs are favored in this game. It's on Sunday night. You are starting Patrick Mahomes. You are starting Tari. Kill your starting Travis Kelsey to do we expect to see other Spencer where or Sammy Watkins sounds like I I don't think Samia Lakhan Spencer could be surprised, but I don't think so. And I think given the mount of mistime for Sammy Watkins hard to have any confidence there Spencer where limited in practice, but the hamstring issue. Remember he had to injuries. But the hamstring is the one Indy read has said has been the more problematic for him as often is for running backs. I think he has a shot to play. They don't make some determination after today. You don't feel great about it though. Because if he plays he's likely not at one hundred percent, just judging. From the fact that he hasn't been a full go yet in practice. Okay. We don't expect him business. Well, we'll see on Spencer where Matt to if he plays. We have them ahead of Damian Williams, if he doesn't play it makes things easier, you're playing Damien Williams. Oh, yeah. Hundred percent Damian wounds would be a very attractive play obviously expense, whereas outta Spencer. Whereas in like, I am it's running back twenty one. You know, I have to if they're going to put them out there, especially given their postseason aspirants..
"jalen samuel" Discussed on First Things First
"That's the reason why you had a lot of clutching and grabbing their overall defense being aggressive from the beginning. I thought was one of the huge difference in the game. No, you're absolutely right. The defensive front was able to not only disrupt Tom Brady and passing game. But dish what the running game and get them off schedule. But one of the things that's the prize me about Brady in this game. Is typically Tom Brady is able to manipulate the pocket. He's one of the best in the NFL in terms of movement within the pocket, but it was clear that that Pittsburgh Steelers defensive line. They made him uncomfortable getting that interior presser with Hargrave into that makes a difference. So Tom Brady he's been a lot of time off of his back foot. And what does that lead to turn overs? And so that's why that's in part. Why that offense struggled yesterday? Tom Brady, usually is able to bail them out when you have time to step up. He can be able to find those windows to get guys the ball tho- guys open. He wasn't able to do that yesterday. You can even say there's a good part of this patriots team that beat themselves with the penalties with missed opportunities. But the Steelers played a pretty good team, especially defensively, Nick defensively, they were great Jalen Samuels. He told Peter King last night. Peter King was less. One hundred yards rushing said never not even in high school never had nineteen nineteen carries in a game even in high school. So he played a game. No one could have in -ticipant did and they overcame some bad big bend mistakes, they overcame what I thought. What was I kick or gone had lost like when Boswell ever coming off a bad week missed a chip shot early? I thought he was done credit to Mike Tomlin. I wouldn't have done it. Where late in the game. I would have punted that ball away said Brady you got no timeouts. We're up for. I'm not risking Boswell. Missing this and giving you a short field to beat us. I'm gonna make good length field Tomlin, trusted, the kicker. They gave the extension to this off season. He nails that fifty yard which may be turned his mentality around and credit Mike Tomlin, he's been the coach there twelve years. They've now once again, guaranteed to not have a losing season becomes one of only five coaches NFL history.

"We're trying to we're trying to score. Within score. Stay at one time. Great last question. You think ahead? You know, if you score was seventeen to ten so if they scored seventeen sixty are you thinking head you automatically throwing up the two fingers say we're going for to there or not. Thought it was a good fair question man, the same situation. The chargers went on Thursday. Exactly. Right. Anthony Lynn said I was going for to the whole time. Let's let's play the game that building. Let's assume that they score the touchdown. Do you think they kicked the extra point? Do you think they go for two? I mean based on their decision making earlier in that game. There was a spot where they could have gone for a score and ended up taking a field goal. So I feel like their MO was to play it safe in this game. I I don't think they would have I think they should have. I think in most most of those situations. I would rather you see go for it or not. I think you would have kicked it, which which you really I'm just spitting in the way because you don't know him he'll go for four on twenty yard line at one time. And then you know, kick a field goal another time when he's when you think he's going to go for it. So I think in the way they were I don't know, you know, then then there's part of me that says they were playing so poorly. Maybe you wanted to try and go one plan get the hell out of there. And I'd have to go anymore because what I say, Pittsburgh, boy, it doesn't matter who the running back is Samuels run for a one hundred forty seven yard forty two. I mean, who's running the ball? I mean, they were they were running all over to see the whole. You don't have eyelids. See? Point. There's no way. What see? But then that takes away from Pat Mahomes greatness because then you can't throw a no look pass. Wow. No eyelids. You can't throw a no look pass, and that would be problematic. I do think it's a sign of respect that. Bill Belichick didn't say shut up. He just said, let's the fact that he used Mike name. I get what you're going there. I I respect you as a professional. I'm just not going to. But I didn't answer is the first time, and I'm not gonna let you walk into an answer. The third time you'll get your chance out got. Exactly, right. You know, what the thing you just mentioned might be the most problematic thing, I think they gave up one hundred seventy eight rushing yards against the against the dolphins. The patriots did. And then you have Jalen Samuel's doing what he did. I mean, the patriots run defense that's going to be a problem going forward. And by the way, we don't have to wait any longer weaken crown that's next..

"All right bowlers, Stephen from verte park. Maryland love the show just wanted to ask about your outlook for Adrian Peterson. Do you think he's star play last two weeks of the playoffs? But nope. No. I think Adrian Peterson is a guy that you're going to have a really hard. Look, I realized Derrick Henry just destroyed. Jacksonville's rusty fence to the tune of all of the arts, and but that's the match up this week is Jacksonville. And it's in Jacksonville. So I don't think that defense is going to be rolling over Adrian Peterson. Look the offense is just not good right now with a third string quarterback in third string guards. It's not helpful to Adrian Peterson. Chris Thompson is back in the week. After you're on the road in Tennessee. I don't think you can play Adrian Peterson the rest of the year. Would you play? Way Derrick over and then yes, see if Peterson doesn't fall into the end zone. You're gonna be destroyed by that went probably the situation right now. And and the odds of him getting in there have been reduced with the quarterback and guard situation. Yeah. One hundred percent. And I realized he had a ninety yard run a couple of weeks ago Adrian Peterson can break something off. But I'm not willing to take that risk especially when you consider look two weeks ago. We had nine carries last week. He had ten carries. If the plan Chris Thompson over him both weeks, right? Because if the game gets out of control what you expect it to with what's happened to the injuries to Washington then Adrian Peterson's game scripted out. No, you can't you can't play him. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. Twitter question from. Chad johnson. I don't think it's the Ocho. I don't think is the oh, oh that'd be. Can we trust James Connor if he's active? You have to. If they activate James Connor I'm gonna have enough confidence that they're going to use James Connor. Yeah. I mean, it's it's one of those where it's going to depend on what's on your roster, but similar to the Melvin Gordon situation. You know, I would play James Connell. I'm not gonna play someone like Derrick Henry over James, Connor. But. Gus edwards. How would you feel about that Gus Edwards against Tampa Bay play James Connor if he's active? Yeah. I probably have two I have more confidence in Melvin Gordon coming out the injury because we four. Yeah. But yeah, I mean, trusting him. Yeah. I think you have to Hayes too. He's too high a priority for your team. I can't imagine you have somebody to pivot to that is much better. I mean, would you play James Connor if he's active or Sony, Michelle? I would play Connor. Yeah. Me too Instagram. Nick pretzel. Oh, sounds delicious. Oh, what am I to do with the pickup of the week? Justin Jackson have him on Thursday. Do I wait CONNER status? And then play Jalen. Yeah. This this is a situation where they they need to decide whether to start Justin Jackson, let's presume Gordon's out or do you wait to hear about Connor in play? Jalen Samuels if Connors out. No, this is one where you you've gotta take what you know, when you know it so on Thursday, if Melvin Gordon is out you're going to need to start Chuck's Justin Jackson, because you don't know what's going on with Connor versus Jalen, and I think we should weigh in on what we believe about James Connor to do we believe he'll actually end up active. I don't think so passive that. I'm putting on ninety ten he sits. And here's I mean, you can follow us up and say, okay, let's say we know let's say he's ruled out before Thursday's game. So, you know, Jalen Samuel Samuels is the is the the only guy there other than goal line voltron of Steven Ridley who would you rather start in that situation. Justin Jackson, or or Jalen. Yeah. Play. Justin Jackson me as well. Yeah. Yeah. Let's go to another voicemail question. What's up footballers? This is Al here.

Steelers fall to Raiders as Chris Boswell falls on game-tying field-goal attempt
"Go to Oakland and lose yesterday. Unbelievable. Twenty four to twenty one Chris Boswell missed an extra point. But the story of this game for a while was Ben Rothlisberger getting hurts volume. He stayed out until they started to lose. And then he goes back in. Yeah. We'll ribbon DRAM in the fact that he was back on the sidelines. Sounds like he was cleared to come in. Mike Tomlin said later that. It was the game flow that the game at the time did not allow for him to return. You know, what our interpreted the bottom line? He went into the locker room to get X.

It's a slow slow slow awful data. The like Tibo did to Marius just end it. Michael in Arkansas, let's get you on the phone line here on the rich Eisen show. It's Michael rich. How you doing things for taking my call? Sure. Making it listen you, and I had a conversation last year I've been healer fan for about fifty two years. What is going on here? I mean, you are utilized here that I was out of my mind or a Steeler fans out of our mind that. We wanted to get rid of Tom. We got rid of Haley last year thing he didn't even lasting cleave. One. We didn't do you think that it's time to. Do something with our heads. Something obviously is definitely wrong in Pittsburgh in the locker room the team. And roll over. There is something absolutely wrong with this team and is not. Is it not the head coach that's responsible for the it is true, Michael? But here's the scoop. Okay. Let's let's call it. Let's let's be really honest here. They could've used Levy on bell yesterday in the worst way. And Levy Levy on bell has not been able to answer the bell. If you will on a on a couple of September. But he's always been there in December. And he's been the difference maker. And he would have won that football game yesterday. He would have won that football game that they tied against Cleveland in week one. So it's time to maybe lay some blame at the feet of somebody who couldn't get them in period. And I don't know what's going on with Ben there. I mean, like, I keep telling you Michael that there's an iceberg. And we see just the tip. There's something going on there. I have no idea. What Tomlin's been dealing with and one other thing too? Thanks for the call, Michael. Antonio Brown needs to get more than five catches period end of story. And I know rob Berger loves juju Smith Schuster, and he is a number one ride wide receiver. They've got two ones. But when you don't have a guy to run the ball. Okay. Jalen Samuels and Steven Ridley scored a touchdown. But that's just not going to cut it. And you've got an all world quarterback. Ben rothlisberger. They should've thrown at ninety times yesterday. And just not just not even bothered running it. Well, his ribs were hurt. And then there's that when he was out, and I'm like, okay, Josh jobs and dubs made some nice throws. He was escaping and doing some good things. But when Ben's try to back out, I'm like, okay. It's the usual thing. I don't want. So Ben Rothlisberger. Have a high ankle sprain against the the Browns and Marshall FOX halftime. He's coming back. We're like why goes he's always hurt. And he's always coming back. And I'm like this is a high ankle sprain. Guess came back. And the fact that he came back and didn't go back in. Yeah. The quote from Todd what after the game he could have reentered the game suitor wasn't. He who's keeping him out. But I Tony LeBron's going to have more than five catches for thirty five yards. It was just one of three games of season. Would you score? Touchdown. And I'm sure he is behind the scenes right now a pill about it. And guess who's coming into town to just throw the dirt on top war? New England coming off of that loss. The way they lost. Again. I'm I'm telling you this dealers fans, Mike and Arkansas Michael markets on everybody else. Look putting a linebacker on. Keenan Allen was disaster that Tomlin should have seen come and mid game and made some sort of a judgment in didn't amount saying he's without fault. He is not a perfect coach. But what he is is in this day and age a guy who will get your team ready fired up ready to go. And I know they didn't look all that great yesterday.

Jalen Samuels for as long as you get him in Pittsburgh or Jeff Wilson junior. If I knew that all three were, you know, I if Jalen Samuels Jeff Wilson situation was not changing I would want both of those guys ahead of Damien Williams. All right, Joe mixing kept running hard twenty-six for one eleven and one great match up next week Oakland at home. Christian McCaffrey was great again, he should've had three touchdowns ended up with two. That's if you're really greedy, his twelve touchdowns in his last seven games twice. Christian mccaffrey. I'm really excited not to play him next week. Because I it looks like it's ver-. It looks like I'm not going to face him in our league record after the bye facing like what four times this year because he kept getting traded, right? Yeah. You kept getting traded to my opponent. And then he would just score a billion points against me. Well, it is. I I'm interested to see what happens next week because New Orleans has pretty much shut down the running back position, but Christian McCaffrey because he's utilized the way he is. I thought you were going to tell me they're going to trade McCaffrey the NFL ahead of next week's matchup after the deadline just two just because of anti hallways team. But that'll be interesting kind of you know, to he's just sources involved. He I involved wide receivers. Oh my goodness. All were hanging. I don't know what the dance was. I just did Sarah Amari coup. It wasn't really dance. I wasn't into it. And I was like let me see you. Go. Much better it worse Amari Couberton for to seventeen in three. What do you do? What do you do? I know you play him. Now, it's got Indianapolis Tampa coming up, but how good is the Markku per how consistent will he be on the Dallas Cowboys heading into next season, assuming it's the target since it's the targets that he I mean Hillhead in he'll get all the money in the world from Jerry Jones. And he probably should he there were three and five when they traded form they're eight and five dominating the division yet. If one every game since they've had him. He was clearly they were lacking a number one in the thing is that I like about Amari Cooper. It's his talent has always been there. He just disappeared in targets so often that's never going to happen with the Cowboys. It seems they're they're so committed to making him the one and involving him in offense almost building the passing offense around Amari Cooper that the talent has the opportunity to win out. Why you know? There's never been consistent. That's been the problem. He's had boom games and whole career. It's just. The consistent targets and being treated like the number one is the difference. You know, you heard those rumors from Gruden on the way into the season, right all the talk of Cooper. But the targets their cars consistency. Whatever it was didn't work out. What if what if what if one team had MAC and Cooper on it? That'd be a good ball. Amari Cooper in and Khalil Mack. Yeah. That'd be a powerful. Getting you could trade for both those guys who just imagine your future future would be bright really quick.

"We'll talk with the deal from the fantasy doctors coming up in the next segment, but because we're in week one of the fantasy football playoffs. I got a lot of questions, and I've got a few questions that people have been asking me and Jose. I think you've got a few questions as well. Do you not? I do have some you ready to go. Let's go. Let's do it. All right. We talked a little bit about. The injuries. The Steelers have been dealing with what's going on with the running backs. Well, I think that it's going to be Jalen Samuels backfield. I think he's still going to get seventy percent of the touches. I think most of it's gonna come on those passing dons and potentially at the goal line. You'll Stephen ridley's going to get some touches maybe even early downs. The Steelers generally don't use a running back by committee. And they say that they're going to a Samuels is never been a workhorse back at any level. So you could be looking at maybe even a sixty forty split. I do expect Samuels he should be the main bulk carrier for the Pittsburgh Steelers. And he could give you maybe some top twenty top twenty twenty-five value in any PR leagues. All right. How much hope do you have for Mark his as Caitlyn? I don't have any idea. What happened Green Bay? I I really don't. I mean, you figure the number two receiving option in an Aaron Rodgers lead passing offense should be putting up really good numbers on a weekly basis. But he's just not getting it done. Now. It's not about the snap count. Because a lot of it. I'd like to look at the snap county. And if somebody's going to be out there regular basis. He's darn near gone route for route with Davante Adams since week five. But his receptions have dropped big time over the last three weeks one one and two. Now does the Packers coaching staff. They know what to do to turn this offense around to me Aaron Rodgers. I think he's gonna come out and he's gonna play with his hair on fire. He's going to be incredibly upset, but I don't wanna roll with Marquez vault scant scheduling in the fantasy playoffs. I'm just maybe next year. But for this year, I'm not so high on them anymore. All right. This one's gonna hit a little close to home. Chris Detroit's your boy is your boy cousins. I do. I just feel like I if he asked me to marry him. I do I do trust her cousins. Ask you to marry him. Would you? I do. But. I ain't judging thing. The cousin leagues the league incompletions with three hundred fifty the Vikings need to run the ball. Throwing the ball always times in reading the league incompletions, according to ESPN total QBR total quarterback rating he still ranked as the fourteenth most valuable passer in the NFL. But if you look at pro football focus, they list cousins as ninth best quarterback in the league. Now, you take your personal feelings aside. I'm gonna look at what the Seahawks have done over the past month. You look at the past four weeks every quarterback. And this includes Nick Mullins last week with three fifty five or two scores. Every quarterback has tossed at least two touchdowns against that Seattle secondary. Again, Nick Mullins had three fifty five into last week in Seattle. Plus Zimmer is pissed at flip for not running the football. So if you run the football that's opens things up a little bit more Adam feeling it's defined digs. But yes, I do trust her cuts. All right. His dad's. Is really good at sending the runner. Should you? Send Dante Pettis to you're starting lineup. Oh, you know, what I was a big carry Pettus fan growing up. I love Gary Pettus to this day may third base. Coach Gary Pettus man when he was playing all I love Gary Pettus when I was a kid, but we're talking about Dante Pettis at this point. To quote, the Kool aid, man. Oh, yeah. Pierre sons that out because of a knee injury since week ten marquees Goodwin has been tending to a personal matter. Look what Dante Patterson's done. Dick Mullins is targeted him twenty times over the last three games. And he's caught thirteen of those for two hundred eighteen yards three touchdowns. Now, Nick Mullins has got a one hundred twenty point four passer rating on those downs. Now, if you're looking for somebody that is going to be a part of the offense and somebody that's going to be looked at. Absolutely. I like Dante Pettis. I don't think that Markey's Goodwin. Coming back is going to hurt him. At all matter of fact, I think it's actually going to help him. Now. One of those catches metro was a seventy five yard touch last week against Seattle. Jeff Wilson, Dante Pettis. I do like Dante Pettis. Absolutely. He's a must start. He won't give wide receiver one numbers wide receiver to numbers. But he is definitely somebody that I'm putting into my lineup. All right doesn't x one was a little bit of a hypocrite for me because of how good of a seat. Season. He's had they suffered an awful loss to the Jaguars. What the hell happened with Andrew lucked last week? I don't know. I don't think anybody knows what happened. The Indianapolis Colts couldn't score a single point think about that. Think about that a team that gave up a ninety nine yard run to Derrick Henry on Thursday night did not allow a single point to the Indianapolis Colts. Now luck rolled Houston a week four forty four sixty two four hundred sixty four yards four touchdowns and no interceptions. But I will say right now if you take a look at that Houston, Texas defense, they are fourth best in the NFL. Andrew luck last week. The numbers were not great. They weren't bad. Thirty three fifty to two hundred forty eight yards and an interception, but he didn't have a touchdown and that broke his streak of three consecutive weeks with three touchdown passes. Jacksonville. Previously dead defense came alive. What took three sacks? He was hit nine times. He entered that game matching with three or four passing touchdowns in eight straight games. I do think he does get back on track this week at Houston that being said, I don't have a dog in the fight. I think we're looking at Houston Texans winning ten in a row jank's too. I do have to say. Do I have to say, you jinxed, it, you know, was don't mention it. Mention you don't mention a no hitter in baseball. You don't miss undefeated. It's not like they're going undefeated. You ruined it coming for you, Monday morning, buddy. You know what? Yeah. Houston texans. They're gonna go thirteen and three. That's right. What all the way, you know, what I'm push all my chips to the middle of the table. That's right. All right. It's one of the parts of the of the show that I love it's time for the tubs e prints player of the week. It's time for.

"It's an interesting weekend ahead in the NFL, Adam Schefter, seventeen Kinch the clinch playoff spots in the AFC, including Kansas City. They can clinch with a win or a dolphins colts and titans loss or tie. Patriots. A lot simpler win against the dolphins and they clinched the AFC east for the one millions consecutive year. It's ten, but it feels like two hundred they already have the record for most consecutive division titles. And it's never gonna end Texans cleanse the AFC south with a win against the colts. If the titans lose to the Jaguars tonight. It would be there third division title in the last four years and the simplest way the chargers can can clinch a playoff spot would be by beating the Bengals and the dolphins. Broncos titans and colts all losing or tying. So the circumstances are a little bit confusing in there, but is really get the point. We're at that time of year. But at the time of year, we're figuring out clinching scenarios and things like that. We also have some significant injury news around some big names in the AFC start me with Melvin Gordon. Well didn't practice yesterday? And I think the charges were hopeful that he could come back fairly soon. I think getting next week one week from today Thursday night game against the Kansas City Chiefs. But the only signs all right now being that he didn't practice yesterday that Logan Gordon will not wind up playing this week it they'll have to rely once again on Austin echo in your breakout from last week. Justin Jackson Jackson getting it done northwest exact, greedy. And then as for another one that gives you already know the James Connor is not going to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers. So for that ankle injury last week against the April mentioned shortages Connor is gonna be out this week. So the question becomes who is doing to place him and yesterday. Jalen Samuel said that the way that they're gonna work is it Samuel is going to rotate your Steven Ridley, those split time Samuel's start then Ridley then back to Sanyo's again in Newark, Cayenne and how about this. And this was crushing to the Denver Broncos yesterday during practice wide receiver catching passes against nobody gets air in a manual Sanders. Those down Brad his left ankle four. Achilles. The Broncos place in an IRA. And that's how quick it can happen that a player's season. End his career can change a teams outlook can become bleaker because they had traded away. Damaris thomas. Yep. At the trade deadline to Houston. And now they lose their other starting wide receiver, Emmanuel Sanders. And so they're gonna have to rely now going forward against the forty Niners. Somebody and as this team makes an unlikely playoff push on Cortlandt Sutton, a rookie second round pick the Sean Hamilton a rookie fourth round pick and the rookie wide receivers against to bail out the Denver Broncos. Yeah. This is a team that has made exactly that I sort of an unlikely push for the playoffs, and they have a pretty easy schedule. The rest of the way, let me show you some of the things in turn around if one three straight all without scoring twenty five points in any of them. They're the only team to win back to back games this year without scoring twenty five for the doing it with a lot of defense. They're also taking care of the football. They're forcing turnovers plus eight turnover margin since weeks eleven at part of that they were even so the. Best margin in the league turning teams over and von Miller has been sensational all year second in the league in sacks as at least half a second career, high seven straight games in speaking of on Miller, I had a chance to chat with him yesterday before the Sanders injury. Here's that conversation. I believe the operative word for the Denver Broncos is resurgent. They are back from seemingly the debt and their best player. Von Miller is with us. I'm get up this morning on. Thank you so much for doing this high feeling today. Pretty good. Thank you for having me. You gotta be feeling a lot better with the way your team has played of late. I'll admit it. You guys lost six out of seven. And I thought it was done in Denver this year. Now, you've turned it around with three consecutive wins.

"Steelers running back James Connor left Sunday night's game against the charges. It looked like he had not insignificant injury. It was downplayed by reports as a contusion to the leg. Instead, it's an ankle injury. That already has him ruled out for this weekend at Oakland. Meaning that the starting tailback will be Jalen Samuels or Steven Ridley they picked up Trey Edmunds to the active roster on Tuesday. And that's not going to be good. It's especially not going to be good. If he can't make it back by week fifteen when they have their annual showdown with the New England Patriots. Meanwhile, Ben Rothlisberger is defending the decision to throw the ball more than they run the ball. And they're probably going to be throwing it even more. Now, Chris than they've been running it. Let's hear what Ben had to say yesterday. And then we'll break this down. He was asked what he says to people who thinks that the Steelers throw the ball too much 93.7 the fan in Pittsburgh. Don't think that there's any, you know. People for a reason for people to get worked up over the roads compared to passes people are always gonna get worked up over the numbers when you lose especially I don't know people look at it worked up to one the game. So that's why Randy's calls the place for us. And I think we're all we're all just fine with with the run pass ratio. We just wanna win. Chris your thoughts on that. Well, they are a little imbalanced this year as compared to years past. I mean, the the numbers bear that out. And I would like to see them be a little bit more. You know, there's a little more run game issue. I think it helps out their offense in general. It's going to help out the big place to a juju. Smith Schuster Antonio Brown off of play action. They have an extremely good offensive line. As is. So I do think there's been moments especially recently, where I've said man, it's it's they've gone two or three series here without actually running the ball downhill or doing anything like that. Now, they do have a short passing game that they substitute for that. And I get that they're very good at wide receiver screens and those quick type of throws. But I do think that if they want to beat some of the better teams and better defenses and football that they can't be so one dimensional at times. Like, we've seen them over the last few weeks and Ben Rothlisberger is not necessarily the best guy to be defending the skewing of the numbers toward passing because he's the one that wants to pass it this one of the reasons why they got rid of Bruce Arians all those years ago because there was a belief that areas was working too hard to showcase Ben Rothlisberger at the expense of. Of the overall offense. And yeah, we're office. Burgers, wanna throw the ball. Throw the ball. Throw the ball add to his legacy. Make those big plays win games with his arm. You know quarterback can't take a whole lot of pride in winning the game by having the ability to turn around and hand the ball to the running back. So I can see why rothlisburger would be saying that. But as the weather turns, and it's definitely turning. I'm one hundred miles south of Pittsburgh. I can tell you it is turning you better be able to grind the ball out. Like the Steelers have done in the past. And they're going to need James Connor back ASAP because it is the patriots in only eleven days coming to Pittsburgh in that game's going to go a long way toward determining whether or not the Steelers have a shot at a by. Yeah. Exactly. Right. I mean and the patriots of the perfect example if you become one to one dimensional against a team like the patriots. Well, you saw your Vikings last week become one dimensional against the patriots had that workout Mike. Yeah. Not very good all ten points of that one dimensional this. So that's the point right there. It's not about I by the Vikings that I missed the now. I know you, and I agree that they don't run the ball enough either. And it makes it easier to defend especially the good defenses in football. So that's where I look at it. I'll say this much about Pittsburgh, though. And you might have heard me, or at least remember me in the summer talking about this. Jalen Samuel, the kid that came in at a North Carolina State the other night and turned the corner and got the touchdown on the short little pass. He is an impressive player. I liked him. A lot of NC state when they played Notre Dame last year. I think he's every bit as talented as a as a Connor. I really do. I think he will not be a big letdown. But let's just see if they use them or did they decided to just go with the air show and keep throwing it to ju ju and Antonio Brown. I I remember vividly you pumping up. Jalen samuels? When it looked like Bel wasn't going to be there. He hasn't had many opportunities this season. He's only got thirty one rushing yards has got fifty four receiving. But but he has scored a couple of.
"jalen samuel" Discussed on NFL Talking Heads
"So you just never know in this situation question for you too. So I didn't I didn't put this player down on my running backs list. But an interesting thought though, what do you make Jalen Samuels for the Steelers now James CONNER? No Levy on the rest of the year. So we got that out of the way James Connor left the Thursday night game against Carolina with a concussion. We know how these concussions are the Steelers are competent. He's going to be back for the game on Sunday against the Jaguars. But it's crazy with these Pittsburgh running back to Jalen Samuel steps right in and granted Carolina was Latin. Pittsburgh, do whatever they wanted to him. But three catches twenty two yards and touchdown for j. It's unreal. What the Steelers running back to whoever's in there produces? What are where do you where do you fall on maybe grabbing Jalen Samuels, especially if you have James Connor, especially if you have James Connor, I think he's an absolute must at this point. 'cause you're basically securing yourself in Rb one, even if you don't have James Connor, I think you've if you have the room on your bench to put him there. I think that you should highly consider it for the obvious reasons of James Connor going down. But for the other reasons too that we heard them talk a little bit about during especially during the early mid part of the season of, you know, I don't I don't know if they knew or what their thoughts were in terms of bell coming back, but they were driving James car into the ground and using him as should. And there was in several reports that they liked to Samuel's person, but Connor was playing so well, there was no point in getting seals out there. Plus Samuels, I believe is rookie if I'm if I'm correct so. I think down the stretch here. They've made they've alluded to it where they want to even light in Connor's workload. And now, I think that with Connick being guaranteed being the one a for sure. It could be a scenario of kind of like an awesome Ecuador, or you know, you might think of a couple of other examples there where he he's almost as he's almost ten point player, even as the backup just because of the catches and the way that Pittsburgh runs the running backs, and we've seen how valuable pitzer running backs are that the upside is just so great that I think it's even if you know there's like a ninety ninety percent chance you're probably never gonna be able to start him. It's worth taking that chance. Because what happens if James Connor goes down or gets another concussion? He misses a couple of games. Jalen Samuels could win you a couple. He could be the difference in you making the playoffs or not making the playoffs like he could be a game changer. So I'm talking myself in Jalen Samuels. I mean, I brought him up kind of after the fact is like, you know, what do you think about him? But I think James Jalen Samuels is as sneaky as they come. And again, if they just lighten up Connors workload a little bit the same way that they do out in LA. In the chargers, then just like awesome. That cler he has a potential to be ten point player himself, which I know it's not super ideal. But just you know, the fact that you've event that you know, he's going to get touches is is is a lot easier swallow when you have someone on your bench..

He might be a player that you're looking to staff. So you're not saying like you need him right now, you're saying like if you have room take them. Yeah. Because we're seeing this team. We're seeing the the Browns get better as the season go on goes on. And you know, they get to play the Bengals when they come back from the by week. And we saw drew Brees is due to that bingles defense and the Bengals defense is one of the worst in the NFL. So Baker Mayfield might be a nice play in week twelve. So it's weird commenting Browns team. Isn't it? But you know, what I'll do that they have some talent. So it's just a matter of time. And it looks like the time might be now. Yeah. Maybe running backs or do you have another quarterback? Yeah. Running back. So let's do it. Thirteen percent on ESPN Reshad penny. Yes. And that brings up an interesting conversation. Why should people go after him? Well, yeah. One hundred rushing yards one touchdown against the the a relatively decent defensive the Rams. And you know, what they think they're going to trust him more with the running. I think they're going to say, okay. This guy had a good game. Let's see how he goes. And he and the momentum going to keep picking up for penny. He was the first round pick in this year's draft. And why not trust them? Okay. Good flex player. I'll tell you why. Because Chris Carson didn't play yesterday. He's her starter. He's had some really good games this here. Mike Davis is also had some good games sear. So now, you kind of have Rishaad penny as the third wheel in a three running back set that they that they use all three running backs. If Carson is healthy, which you know, he was a game time decision yesterday. So he should be back. This week is penny. Somebody that you still consider picking up. Yes. Because I think they still are been out the. The rushing use in option passes pretty well against those three. And I think my Davis is going to get less snaps in shop parent is going to get more snaps. Yeah. He had twelve carries penny twelve carries yesterday. So I mean. He got the work, but he can only he can only improve my him. Yeah. I mean. Yeah. Either. I would say more of a lines of like, but are you worried that he could actually go this week without getting more than three or four carries? Because I mean, it's possible, right? Like if Carson and Davis are healthy. There's a scenario where maybe he has three or four carries for fifteen yards. Right. And it is true. But I don't know. I just I have a gut feeling about this. I know. Everyone's like, oh, I got a good feeling. Everyone has good feeling. But we're penny is something specially with some specialists in ego state. He's showing a bit with that flash. Was Seattle against the Rams. And you know, what one just take a shower with him? I think he really gonna flex player for you. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. So I haven't running back who is less than one percent owned that might be somebody who you want to keep your eye on. That's Jalen Samuels. Ooh. Say John Cleese Rogers. But okay, Jalen Samuel, Dino. Jalen Samuels, I believe he plays for. I don't know. He is a Steelers running back. Oh, so he's a backup to Connor. Yes. If the if living I'm Bill doesn't facts at the. The rest of the season. Jalen Samuels is now the backup running back for the rest of the season in Pittsburgh. And James Kearns coming off a concussion. So what does this mean? Jeff, I'll tell you. I see what you're kidding. Yeah. Whatever. Meals, a very good player that I don't know. But I would probably say probably not, however, if you have the running back in the Pittsburgh offense, you'd be a happy, man. Whether it's you me or Jalen Samuel..
