"No we gotta build this up. We're not there yet. When we know this is off with someone doing a good samaritan job like this. I took the a real. Mvp moment by the way. That's a real mvp moment but we're not there yet because we the build up to charles we have to to right okay. So thursday night. Football bucks beat the eagles. You know they got just enough. I saw some of that game. Tom brady having his way. Jalen hurts doing the best that he can with that eagles squad larry go We had already talked about the affirmation washington. Football team inspired by the chiefs. Those thirty one to thirteen the rams beating the giants in your genzer bad team. They spanked them thoroughly. Thirty eight to eleven larry. Go the colts you know. Put a hurting on the houston texans. Thirty one to three. The dolphins dolphins accidently skipped forward with regards by the miami dolphins watch. Why would you subject yourself to. Because i needed a good laugh. I'll man being me. And the that picked to attack evola over justin. Herb ideas see the team who decided pay will fuller a one year. Ten million dollar contract to go from there. I need to see a team. Who just overpaid xavien howard again at a renegotiation. And then you pay big money byron joe. He just missed that Just like the miami dolphins of agency and then how they utilize jalen waddell just Catch the shortest routes okay. I'm going to try and get through this as quickly as possible. Because i always go through the the the text me in doug san of course this. This happened in london so we exported terrible football over to the british but again by the way for tea party. Parts you baby. You ain't going to get the goods real classic football games. Yeah so Dolphins face the jaguars and send home game of the jaguars play over there. Doug did get up and watch that game. I could not care less. But he said that he couldn't leave the pain behind. And of course charles had sent something. I look the dolphins. You know what this is beautiful for me by the way i feel like i enjoy the dolphins sucking more than succeeding. It's become that. I almost you know in sort of Morbid type of way but yeah. Yeah i. I seem to enjoy more because guys. The dolphins are tanking in the worst way outward in the worst way because they don't even have their first round pick this year that belongs to the philadelphia eagles. so the dolphins have an inadvertent tank. The tank that they did not suspect would be constructed. They expected to compete for at least a wildcard spot this season and a lotta people. Expect that from the dolphins and yet here they are one of the worst teams and nfl. Losing to a team that had lost previously twenty games in a row the jacksonville jaguars urban meyer mr Grab your urban. Yeah you go there. You go losing to that man. Trevor lawrence losing to that man right so the dolphins have a tank that they cannot control. They have a tank that cannot control. The tank came in took over and his running wild and they don't know how to stop it and they do not want this tank to to happen because they get no benefit from this tank..

"You see the bucks. Just sorta ran away with this one i. It was sort of a game out of the first quarter. And then tom brady was. They took over. They have their almost full complement of weapons. But even without rob gronkowski. This is This is just a handful to deal with your even for a dolphin seem that has been pretty good. Defensively of late and Just just not in this one but Yeah miami has suddenly just a boy a whole lot of issues as they get ready to head over to london and play the jaguars. When the dolphins briefly had a first quarter lead. i was ready. For gary's i was right on jacoby set. This is the key. To the future of the franchise. It was all out for the game had ended at that point all it. After fifteen minutes jacoby reset was still. He's not the future of the franchise but he's still. I don't understand how anyone could watch his tape into his tape. And and say that berset has not been markedly in upgrade at this point even if you want to argue based on his draft status that a has the higher ceiling. Because i think if you're making that argument the only thing you're basing it on is the fact that two oh was drafted very high but That's the other here no there. We'll see what they do next week. Percent was playing on one like this week. You have a hamstring injury and He got it out and he played really well but If your defense is gonna give up forty five points that's the way it goes and that is my Session to yell about two percent. Truly sort of jack youngblood moment for jacoby cepa sweet. Gary definitely agreed with the the heroics were on par with that or maybe like the michael jordan of him. Yeah but I don't know i agree with you somewhat. I mean you know there is Some dropped touchdown passes some weird kinda like doing at the beginning of this game. That i feel like i think jalen waddell had a touchdown pass. That was dropped in You know they had to settle for a field goal. But i know i what i find weird about the semen generals that i thought that at least defensively they would be able to contend with the buccaneers given. Brian is expertise given the the capital. They've thrown at the defense in particular your bad offensive team. You're bad offense team. There's nothing you can do about that but i think especially after the patriots hung with them. So close the week before You could absorb the best of that game plan. And i was surprised that i think is so lopsided as lopsided is it was.

"Three strikes pool because one strike is not enough in our in our worlds We're in the three strikes deal How did you do this week. Who did you have what happened. I had carolina. Over the texans last week and it looked pretty sketchy at first. You know they get a touchdown. And then mccaffrey goes out j. C. goes down. And then texans finally get it going so i was squirming a little bit. I hate to thursday night. Game but the The panthers ended up rolling. And i had the weekend off so it was nice. Yes well i of course followed the standard Claim of displaying the jets this week. It was the broncos that were gifted a win that also was the most popular correct. Pick around a fantasy Survivor leagues out there. In the most of the most popular incorrect pick casey kansas city over the chargers who makes that pick come on dom as guy and the most popular picks heading into next week. Tops over. The jets team continues. I think i'm lacking the titans this week. Man case moving along to the fantasy go back starts to the week. This is where we go back in time in our imaginary time machines and we look back and see. What could we have done. If we have played a couple of different foods. Would we have had a different outcome. What happened for you. Well dave i was taken on the bolt action. And i thought it might be trouble. Entice tyson williams only got me a two point two. Had i played. Mike davis instead i would have gotten seven points and i used my waiver wire last year to get rondell more and that paid off with the point four so i could have gone with core davis instead. Four point one so not great numbers but day. That was plenty to beat bold action. Just my seventh straight win over the be as. How did you bro. Fell to one and two unfortunately to the dick sore holes who are technically undefeated and the number one team in our fantasy land casey. I could've made a couple of switches switching out cooper and robbie anderson in for rugs and jalen waddell that would have got me ten more points but still at a loss by four Just wasn't quite enough. A team has twenty guys are no shows. It's going around a lot. Dave will normally bring you guys the extra nominal fantasy show on fridays. We're going to be a little busy this week. So we thought we would get you an extra nominal fantasy segment dave. What's out there on the free agent wire. Go ahead and start with quarterback yes minnesota. It's kirk cousins dude. He gets a lot of you know. Not a lot of love. Really certainly from vikings fan from league round. But he's putting up solid numbers dude and he's available and Thirty eight percent of the league's out there so you need a plugin play guy. He's your man if you if you don't if he's not available in you are desperate sam..

"Harris touchdown by the way the final scores pittsburgh twenty-three buffalo sixteen mention the damian harris fumble late in that new england game does that mean new england would have won. No but they would have been in. The driver's seat would have been the drivers seat to cover. Miami ends up winning that game. Seventeen to sixteen on the road in new england is three and a half point dogs to now seven and three as a starter. I can already hear lombardi sleeping screaming at that number because yes perhaps there is some smoke and mirrors there but he's seven three straight up is the starter. He was sixteen of twenty seven. For two. to one touchdown. One pick was sacked twice. He did have a touchdown rushing as well. Devante parker four for eighty one jalen waddell four of sixty one with a touchdown again. All these rookies big days. Trait lands threw a touchdown pass on his first pass. We mentioned just in fields. I run was a touchdown in philadelphia. Devante smith touchdown on his first catch. Waddell had a touchdown for sixty two hundred fifty nine total yards. That's it though. For the dolphins they were out time of possession to thirty six forty three to twenty three seventeen. I again one week. I don't wanna go crazy. So i'm going to stay. Buffalo is still the favorite. And i'll say by a field goal on the road. Boy i'll tell you what we're going to sell out of those t shirts. I like your little better mind. Come to like two and a half buffalo of always. See three and a half. I'm probably going to open it three and a half because you know we do everything at eleven ten open three. It just opens the door for me. Something that i'm going to have to fight all week because when we go back and forth between three three and a half but i like three better i'm gonna open three and a half just strategic purposes but like the three a little bit better like i said and i really didn't downgrade buffalo off my original power ratings off yesterday's performance but i do think there's a team out there that has a chance to maybe disappoint us a little bit. I think it's the buffalo bills. Yeah and i lombardi says. But i'll tell you what that's another case where i think good. Coaching can make a player a particularly young quarterback better and poor coaching and make them a lot worse. I think this kids getting some pretty good coaching too. Yeah i mean listen. He taught by nick saban. Pretty good coach. I think this miami team is david floors. Remember two years ago they were talking about tanking for to instead. He should have been coach of the year. Remade this team good. I mean they have a good coaching staff and he's a good coach. Bryan floors was coach of the year. As i had a ticket on him. Yeah yeah well. I'll tell you what you had a pretty good beef air. Because i thought he did a hell of a job and i you know right now i think this team there's teams that play up to their potential and i think miami might be one of those teams play down to their potential. The bears look like they might be one of those teams. But i having miami's going to be pretty good this year. Oh by the way. Just gotta newsflash. Ryan fitzpatrick is out for thursday. Is out thursday short short week shortly and he is a little long in the tooth and heineke. I think he'll be just fine. But anyway i'm gonna open three and a half. Although i.

"Felt like that was sort of pretty obvious. Right and You know. I think it's going to be here absolutely nice value for anyone that drafted him. So i i know what my actual take away all. Talk about the rookies in just a minute but just one of the quickly say yesterday was a reminder. We don't talk about the stars all the time. Because was there to say christian. Mccaffrey and dr kelsey reminded you why they are the two biggest difference maker in fantasy football yup christian mccaffrey. Twenty russia's nine catches travis. Kelsey six for seventy six in two touchdowns. He was quiet early for the gs. He went off but my real takeaway. Is that the path for two former alabama. Wide receivers is clear to fantasy this season especially in philadelphia or devante. Smith had a great game. Six for seventy one on eight targets a touchdown for devante smith jalen waddell. Meanwhile at four catch a sixty one yard touchdown he had the only touchdown catch of the day for the miami. Dolphins will fuller was not playing yesterday preston williams and not playing yesterday so it wasn't all the usual suspects there for miami but these guys have a legit shot at a weekly roll inside your lineup to find. What was your big takeaway from yesterday though rookie. Quarterback's had a solid day. Even though it wasn't all wins for them across the board. It was a nice solid for three rookie. Quarterback's it was nice to see trevor lawrence. Obviously with some challenge. There got a lot of air yards mostly as a result of having to try to play. Catchup did three picks his first loss in the regular season. Ever heikal find your hold on though. It looks like your main topic is i. Can't believe the lions hovered. That's what's weird if you're watching the screen. It's a surprise me take away. I can't believe the line over blindsided by the graphics like enter. now i'm not even. I'm not even going to acknowledge it with remark. the i was just. Yeah the rug out from underneath me. And i got ever rooted for the lions is harder way watch and matthew was sitting next to me at the table mexico because we have to be socially distant god because i had to keep him arms link yelling rooting for the lions. Like four hundred. What a poor sport. Just because you're i suppose it depends on a great frenemies today for one day. Finally forget daniel. Tell me we're still wanna know and you're not. Hey i am the detroit lions for self. I'll get to my take away here real quickly and the show but the detroit lions first place detroit. Thank you very much. Did we score more points than anyone else in the nfc north by by chance to be the highest scoring team in that division. I got i got j. hopkinson. Listen i just want to point out. And it's gonna make you wanna make you feel badly daniel about gloating. Jason brett suffered a horrible injury. Did when he went out. The lions scored sixteen answered. Yes they did now. If you want to feel good about how you got your points. I feel good about tj hodgkinson's because he looked absolutely amazing. He's everything that i feel like. We talked about him. Being this off season with how bad this offense is jared. Goff is going to have to check it down to him. He somebody that they love in the red zone. I don't feel like they have anyone else really trust. He's a guy that if drafted him at tight end. I am all in like top three tight end from me right now. This season i think is going to. We're going to finish the year. Twenty five point seven famously pashtun three three then towards mark andrews. I'm going to say george kittles going to be out of my top three quarterback situation no longer bad blood between instant manifested during the portion of this podcast. I love by the way.

"jalen waddell" Discussed on New England Patriots Press Pass
"Jones but really behind. That is a lot of question marks. And now you're starting one of those question marks and we're talking about potentially starting jalen mills at the outside cornerback position which is totally miscast. With jesse jackson. Operating is your number one and what's funny is for a couple of years here. You had outstanding cornerback coverage in crap pass rush and that's how the patriots got things done is people would just be covered for longer. Now you're really gonna need that pass rush to step up because they are definitely thin to start here at the cornerback. And i don't even want to think about week four against Against brady and the patriots. All of those receivers what they're going to throw out there without without gilmore right. I mean week one against miami. You're going to be going on the park or jalen waddell. Mike sippy in really good. Miami dolphins skill position right. I mean they. They got tight ends. Got wide receivers down there. They got a young quarterback into of who they are. I on as well under rumors about to for healthy fuller is not healthy. He's also suspended. I i believe i was nervous. Wasn't for one or two right. So so i don't think he's going to be in the game but still jalen waddell and devante parker enough right to make off a defensive coordinator. Steve villigen bill jenkins may lose some sleep at night as they say right. So that's going to be a test week. Two against the jets is what it is but then you get into week three in week. Four against new orleans and against tampa bay. You're talking about some really good passing. Attacks rights teams that. Have some really good receivers. Obviously tampa bay has a pretty good quarterback that you might have heard of so. There's going to be a lot of tests for the secondary now. The good news is is that the pass rush has looked as good as advertised through the entire summer. Joshu j. match you don. Vanoy hightower certainly chased win abridge when he gets in there christian bar more dietrich wise on the defensive line as interior guys rushing the passer. Everybody has looked In that group rushing the vast writers got some issues baby against stopping the run with some of those individual players win if it's wise far more but in terms of the package when they actually go out there in their ears back. This is going to be a really ferocious pass rush. So that's how they're going to have to do it right. They're gonna have to disguise it. They're gonna have to cover some things up on the back and they're gonna have to really get after the quarterback and that's going to ultimately be this defense calling for the all the time deal more year could you see. Here's the other thing too is You know obviously a reasonable name out there still still looking for job. Richard sherman I don't see it but again You wonder Right now you will have. There's a couple of names released Out there as well Wouldn't be stunning if the patriots Snag one of the guys Who who gets let go and again you're talking about you know twenty five to thirty players per team about to get wacked today. There's going to be a pool of talent. There might be some surprises out there but again nothing that's going to be able to overcome Not having stefan gilmore for the first six weeks of the season of so that's gonna be Definitely tough anything else. You see here as far as the roster goes looking ahead have you changed your thinking In terms of some of the cut downs and who may now make it an who may not know. i mean. I had a feeling that they were going to carry..

"I'm just going to say that he has given six breakouts combined. And four of them are on the lions and the broncos. So that's interesting it out. It's a it's a. it's a little risky right. Some good teams jamie jabe. Chris godwin whose who you breakouts top. Three patrick mahomes thing. He's going to have a great year. i'm gonna go with mas gaskin. I think he's going to build up what he did last year. I'm still hopeful for people that drafted him ask. I can't because you got him at a discount. But i think from us says before we loved extrapolation game. How'd he played sixteen games based on what he did. In his ten games he would have had over eight hundred rushing yards over six hundred receiving yards. Only one other guy did that last year. And that was alvin kamara. So you know if he's in that range Or close to whatever. Alvin kamara can do In terms of his rushing production and his receiving production but anything close to fifteen hundred yards pretty impressive so gaskin will be one. I'll stay with a dolphin and go jalen waddell going to be miami's best receiver and i think he's going to push to be a top thirty receive. I don't know if it'll be much higher than that. Because there's going to be obviously a lot of will fuller and devante parker moments but if those guys miss an extended period of time i love the fact that they've been so creative moving him around if he stays healthy and he's going to be to his best receiver and i think he's going to have a season. Dave stole my tight end of tj. And do you want me to give maybe one commitment and so I'll go back to the terry mcauliffe I think he's just going to have a fantastic season with ryan fitzpatrick. I know we haven't seen it yet in the preseason bound care I wanna see four quarters of shits patrick in in mclaren. And what a stupid stupid report then announced that puts. Patrick was the starting quarterback nob- leap. He's the starter. And he's gonna love terry moran this year i dunno i thought taylor heineke out of a chance i left the breakout for you. Jamie i thought you'd say damian harris Mean you know you don't want to give a force breakout. I can continue to go. I mean i wrote about these guys on the site so yes pointing to read about breakouts. We have a lot more than nine breakouts so just go to. Cbs sports dot com slash fantasy..

"It's all very alabama it's all it's all easy gains to rights right if they're gonna give us gas no flat we're gonna take if you could make one guy mess. I down new downs. We don't need to. It'd be a hero when you to facilitate an offense that makes sense to him and that's the they've talked a lot. Eric students george ghazi costs about how this playbook is going to be deep. And it's going to be complex and that's good plays and we have smart quarterback. We're comfortable in that. But you do have to have your go. Get a buckets and this offense of look you know. They're not trying to show. Everything was very much to go get a bucket very much. The easy stop in and to is going to be able to do that all the way down the field. Especially if guys like waddell and gaskin or able to stay healthy because those guys playmakers the ballmer hands totally grows gonna mention the quick game to both gaskin and wanna I thought was interesting. The motion also impressed me. Ben yeah i was talking to. I did piece on the regular dot com on monday about kind of the last decade of football. And what it's meant in the two thousand eleven scoring boom and harvard chain. I was talking to adam. Zimmer who's the defensive coordinator the vikings and we were just talking about really you. Can't you cannot overemphasize how much motion has changed everything. And how the downhill runs and now become lateral runs and the defense is is never been more confusing and i use this as a way now. Obviously this is not anything that people have known for a couple of years now but if you're not using motion as much as possible. You're leaving Production on the table. And so i was. I was definitely impressed with that Ben if going back to the draft now and seeing this is. This is such a monday morning. Sort of question Waddle is the guy for two right. Yeah i think would win. They were moving around right and they went from free to twelve to six and there was that a media conversation of okay. Who do they feel like is is attention going to be there at six. But there's no chance as well and they had to make this move right out ahead to immediately get back up into the top seven eight. You're looking at two pleasure. Kyle pets and me jalen waddell because a player jomar chase Is going to be that outside. Vertical contested cats jump ball guy having parker and has never really going to be to his game. That's ryan fitzpatrick games. Not really to his game. and then devante smith makes sense right in terms of that that route running and that separation ability. But you're really looking for jack creation after the cat. Something we're devante is good especially for his frame but were waddell has clearly been better across. The course of his career hits also would have made sense. They played too tight. Enzo lot a durham. Smyth is going to be the employer. Offense which is like you know charlotte. Durham smyth But they play multiple times a lot. They wanna be a aggressive downhill running team. That's clearly important to brian florez. I don't think they're going to be that this year but it's really important to him and they wanna have those multiple tight end sets and so you see how pits would've made sense with a times. They moved their tight ends across formation and the times that they get them releasing into concert we might kosinski be decently featured in the offense and one of the preseason that would have been pets so i think pits waddell. Were those two guys that make sense offense that makes sense for two and i do think that as it looks now which obviously they did. Draft waddell basil. Now waddell is important. Waddell is like you said the guy they they used akeem grant as the water. Replacement once Water coming off the field and like it's kinda good is fun player. He's very natural the ball hands. But we've already seen takim grant in miami already know kind of with the ceiling on that as waddell gives you a lot. It's it's the simplicity of saying. If i throw the bubble this guy. I'm getting dissect them for and that's just such a win for my offense and keeps things so easy and it prevents from hero. Plays not only because he doesn't have the greatest deep ball or whatever but also that offensive line's still for all the good stuff that we saw against atlanta's overseen from when they have to take deep drops for two when they tried to run some of those alabama play action shots. It's not a good offense a by late but they had one where waddell got opened on a d. crosser and the often y couldn't hold out for more thumb it was it was They ran in twenty jones. Yeah and and waddle scored multiple touchdowns on that concept and is just the back to be protection. You didn't get a good luck. And then jessie davis right. Tackle mrs bloch. He's got no chance on. So yeah that that pass protection for that deeper. Stop needs to catch up. So you really want to stay ahead of the sticks and wattle is a great players out of the stakes Stephen let's go big picture here. I know this is insane. I know it's insane with the content game for two weeks in the preseason. We've seen it Does what we've seen over the past three weeks with the dolphins give you any any different visions of of the afc east hierarchy. Yeah i think it does because one we don't know i don't know what new england's going to look like like they added all these new pieces. I don't remember what that offense is gonna look like we can. We can guests and then buffalo seems to be due for a little regression. I don't think the offense is going to be fire of fire-breathing. I'm not going to bring up one. Eighty four minutes and fifty seconds. Into your ringer career you brought to pure.
"jalen waddell" Discussed on Nickel Package
"I don't really. I have a lot of trouble predicting what the dolphins offense going to look like empire because the coaches the offensive coordinator. It's a co offensive coordinator situation. They've promoted from within. George godsey and eric st studentville. Hopefully i'm saying his name right. And i don't know i don't know if it's going to be a departure from what chan gailey did with two. I would love to hear your thoughts on what you think they should do with two tunga viola so last year. This is a team that won struggled to run the ball but when two people were there was some flashes. I think of what you saw. At alabama the accuracy play making some athleticism to but he did struggle especially throwing the ball deep ranked thirty first and qbr in fifteen yard plus passes and often looked hesitant to throw a deep or to take risk or throw into tight windows. I think that has a lot to do with the transition from bama open to nfl. Open which you alluded to with one mc mack jones and so the dolphins went out in added a bunch of super fast guys. I think hoping that they can use them to stretch the field both horizontally and vertically and get the kind of separation that makes to a comfortable throwing deep like. Let me. Just ask you this. Do you think he can take another. He can improve palm last season. Or do you think we saw last year. Like how would you feel the dolphins fan about your quarterback. Last year is his ceiling. I would feel horrible. But i don't think last year i don't think last year's has ceiling at all. I think you go back to doing what he was doing. When he was his most successful in use around him with guys who can make things happen after the catch. And that sounds that. Sounds like such a simple concept. But when you look at the the receivers on this roster you look at jalen waddell and you look at willfuller. Even lynn bowden whatever position. They've got him playing and in king grant even more of a returner but still shifty good vision gets full of guys who you can get. You can get them the ball you know. You can run jet sweeps. You can get a five yards. From the line of scrimmage and let them turn it into something and you can scheme these guys open. And i think once he you know in theory sees the boggled through the hoop a little bit complete some of those short passes then things are going to open up a little bit down the field and i think he's going to have the confidence to complete to a guy like devante parker who i don't personally think is the best wide receiver one for this team. I think it might be. It might end up being near model in the in the in the near future. But you know you've got guys when you doubled up tight ends by by drafting Hundred long out of. I want to say boston college right. You already got microseconds. So you've got your safety nets in place already. So i think that they're on the right track of doing what needs to be done to make to a as comfortable as possible and again. It's just it's hammering home. Hammering things home with the with the yet guys. And they did. Come out. And admit which i don't i don't know if it was smart to admit it or not but we'll see he admit that he he didn't really know the playbook last year he wasn't comfortable enough to when he knew a play wasn't gonna work to to change it at the scrimmage. I don't think that's so far. Fetched to think about for a rookie quarterback who didn't have a full offseason. But you would expect to see some of those changes some of that control. At the line of scrimmage now in year two. If i wanna feel good. If i'm a dolphins fan and wanna feel good about my quarterback situation one hundred percent and i just i think you nailed it really is about creating window. Not like they're not bam. Oh but look you have these incredibly explosive skill players and increasingly. I liked the waddell pick by the way. At first i was like mixed feelings about it. But i was thought about to unlike how he needs to develop in this offense. It started to make more sense to me. And you like it is all about designing plays where they can get yards after the catch and where to distribute because he he has a good decision maker and he is accurate but like he's he's he's not going to be aggressive or he wasn't aggressive first and you wanna get coq at aggression out of him in. It's a process again. I really can. You talked about jet sweeps. I really think it's important leg. It's not just hey jalen waddell go run go round like you want to use him horizontally as well and both these all these players will incredible man like he's he's a really good player my concern about this offense as item to being question mark which i'm really just wait and see mode with him is not the skill group or even the running backs. We're fine is the offensive line. Which i got a lot of crop last year for criticizing when i said i didn't think it was a good line. You saw that for two. And i said ryan fitzpatrick makes this line. Look better because he gets the ball out. So quickly and ryan fitzpatrick you know for all of his strengths and weaknesses. Like that is undeniably. Something he can do because he's been league millionaires. And the line. Like i don't know i d- office ever super-defensive of the line i wasn't i don't think like the worst in the nfl or anything. But you know they weren't good so i'm actually. I was looking at the depth chart. I'm actually not sure who's gonna play. Where and that's going to be interesting. Then keep an eye on because obviously they drafted austin jackson. Robert hunt pretty high pick as well but they did draft liam aiken berg out of notre dame this year who michael juniors really high on signed mascara to replace ted karras as a center. I think they might move hunt inside if i can get the starting job but like a lot of question marks in this unit overall agree. But i mean think they're clearly taking steps to to try to improve it for the long term like a like going after your left. Tackle the future nostril jackson regardless of his time. Away from the game Lovely and mike enberg. That was popular. you know. That was a fan favorite for the bills to go after. Either late in the in the first trading up to the early second to grab You know even got a dj fluker in there. Who can maybe figure something out if need. Be if you pick over for robert hunt but you know. I think they're. I think they're improved. I don't know if i don't know if if i'm looking at the running back depth chart i i don't really see any miles. Gaskin was decent of course last year considering his his draft position but I i don't know if there any more spectacular than dennis offensive line is so i think there is still some work to do in the backfield to you know to get to somebody who you know he can competently hand the ball off to. But i can't in the same breath say that the bills don't need to run the ball and say well. The dolphins have to run the ball really the dolphins gannon so is a reasonable critique. I have. I have malcolm brown whose gaskins backup on my fancy team. He's just like a good running back. Like i don't know if you remember with. The ramsey came in and like produce as well as todd. Gurley that one year. So i'm like sneakily thinking that at some point the rb one but yeah i i just think it kind of like the run game like much of this. It'll it'll live and die depending on how this line performs. So the dolphins like the patriots The strength team is widely seen as a defense and the defense is like the patriots in a lotta ways writes a primarily man defense. That what they do they blitz a lot more than the pats do because they have to..

"Can take care the player available exactly so i'm looking at best player available right now. The running backs are pretty gross. We have row. He most kenyan. Drake david johnson ronald jones etc. The wide receivers. We have jalen waddell. Who could be a big time. Prospect for miami chase. Claypool brandin cooks who. I am not high on it. All hollywood brown jerry jeudy so a lot of players that are in the similar tears for me. So what do you do at that point in your draft. There's a plethora of players in the same tier for you as a great question. And that's what. I'm trying to figure out right now. I think what. I'm gonna do here since i shouldn't be needing a running back for the first couple of weeks is lockup brahim oester and simply hope that he comes back from his injury healthy espec- because i won't need him until either one of new orleans or cincinnati's by securely upside pick. I don't hate it. Especially for the beginning of the season he could come out. Be the starter and be phenomenal. Or he could give up his spot relatively quickly and we don't know but like you said you don't need him like you weren't in the same spot i was so i like the most or pick for you. Yeah if i only have one running back absolutely not taking moster because that is a guy that i'm going to need early in the season and it's very possible that most misses some games all right after most calms off david johnson and even know he was still playing traded for deondraye hopkins and has mark ingram and phillip lindsay in his backfield. Now jalen waddell. Trevor lawrence roggio ronald jones and kenyan drake kenyan drake going full three rounds after four rounds after josh jacobs could be some sneaky value. There it's going about six rounds later than last year to sprays definitely definitely one of those guys draft and drake early that goes back to talking about the impact that offseason moves makes of course so pay close attention to where players have gone and what the competition is like kenyan. Drake has lost a ton of value this year. All right so my team right now. I'm like in the team. Zeke aaron jones and david montgomery as my running backs stacked at running back josh allen as my qb mark andrews has my tight end and then the old wide receivers are a little lacking with dj. More byan my wide receiver one so definitely thought process. Here is wide receivers Wide receivers on the board chase claypool. brennan who met won't touch Malcolm brown still jerry jeudy so a lot of good options especially Based on on my projections here with you already having some really released safe floor. Running backs like elliot. Aaron jones and david montgomery does a player. Like willfuller who has a lot of boomer bust attract you or are you avoiding that still one hundred percent. Avoid in right here With his injury status. He's just not gonna play enough games. If i could have a boomer box that played every game absolutely. But i don't know if. I have will fuller in my top thirty six and i still have some wide receivers here who are in my Wide receiver to range so thirteen to twenty four and two of them are actually here. So we'll go ahead and napa both of them Jerry jeudy and as much as i hate the team. I'd love taken wide receiver ones on bad football teams..

"He has not played snapping a regular season game since 2012. How realistic is it that he might actually make the roster and I can't help but think that there's gonna be guys in that locker room? They're gonna ask. Why is Tebow getting the shot when other guys aren't Anyway. Really? Really. I'll tell you what I want. What I really, really want is not have 30 minutes of Tim Tebow talk. I will say this. I loved him is a individual. I love him as a co worker here, But I do, Val here on this fine. Sunday morning. Um, that Amber, I will not go 30 minutes on Tim Tebow in whether he makes the Jags roster. I thought her neighbor Wilson contracts had to. I thought you had to do Tim Tebow talk it. Is It's part of our negotiations as we're going through right now. I don't know if article 14.2 Dash A. The Tebow by law is in there, but I do find it somewhat interesting about the Jacksonville Jaguars and has really nothing to do with him. Tebow. This segment brought to you by Good year helping you discover the road ahead. Goodyear. More driven as we get closer and closer NFL off season The mini camps were happening and people lose their mind, Right. Like people, you know, they get overly excited. Oh, my gosh. I saw Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears yesterday. You look great. You know, it was unbelievable. And then Elijah Moore and And sack Wilson look great in the Jets, and I'm like broke. They don't even have pads on yet. Like your if you can't beat anybody against air, you got an issue, okay? Um, but I do think there's something cooking with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Bear with me, because, um, I want to hear what urban Meyer had to say in his pressure yesterday about Trevor Laurence and how he's quote unquote looked the past two days. Yeah, He's looked rate been great in meetings. Uh, you know, no huddle. Quarterbacks have a tendency to struggle little bit with Burbage and Colin plays and getting used to a coordinator, calling it in your helmet. He's really adapted well to that. He's on a 30 to 40 pitch count right now, And that's just our physical therapist for watching that we're being very cautious could probably go a little bit more. But, you know, we just wanna be very smart about everything. And this is why you have to be smart and not pay attention to everything that Twitter says Okay, because earlier this week There is a quote after one of the many camp practices that urban Meyer said that travesty TN the running back out of clubs and who was a late first round draft, pick a running back. Was going to take the majority of his snaps as a wide receiver. Twitter lost their ever living mind. It was like, what is urban doing? This is not college. You just why did you waste a draft pick? But when you hear what urban had to say about how they're managing Trevor Lords who's coming off the soldier shoulder surgery to make sure he's 100% One of the things they're being very cautious about is they don't want him handing the ball off a ton just in case Listen, there's a miscommunication. Somebody bangs them up and and a hand off and all of a sudden he kind of just tweaks that arm that he's injured, okay? That's one of the reasons why Travis see Tien is working out as a wide receiver and not as a running back and I love this for a couple different reasons. Urban went to Travis eat again and said we're gonna make. We're gonna work it out as a wide receiver. I know you're running back, but take the reps because they were not gonna be going to a bunch of reps for running backs here because it Trevor's arm. Um and oh, by the way. Lady on Belle had a pretty damn good, successful career. Catching the ball out of the backfield is well, too. That's what they want. Travis Et en to be is kind of that Levy on Belle. Catch 60 70 balls out of the backfield and be that little third down back. And if I'm Travis et en. I've gotta love this because guess what? Running backs don't get paid period. Liam's any longer you can catch the ball out of the backfield is, you know you're gonna make a pole boatload of money, So it's great for E. T. M. It's great for the Jags. And, more importantly, it's great for the NFL. Because now the buzz factor is even once again over. Jacksonville has nothing to do with a young Tim Tebow. You're absolutely right. It's great for the Jags. I mean, they have been in the news nonstop for the last two weeks, and none of it has even had anything yet to do with the number one pick in this draft, which is amazing. None of us are talking about Trevor Laurence. We're all talking about Travis Et en. We're all talking about Tim Tebow. And I do think when it's an organization like the Jags that is so often overlooked that it is super helpful to that organization to be in the news cycle, even for whatever reason, even though it's a lot of people getting worked up. Over, frankly stuff that doesn't matter. We're still so many months away from the NFL season. Who cares what's happening here in terms of Travis Et en, taking reps and trying to broaden his skill base, But you are right, Peter, that running backs in today's NFL. That position has been diminished. I was surprised that he went in the first round. I was surprised. I'm always surprised any running backs go in the first round, frankly, in today's NFL, and that's not to say that I wouldn't have taken him and at the 25th pick I think Travis Et en is a very bright future ahead of him. It's just that a diminishment of that running back position generally, you do typically want to get what you can out of them on their rookie contract. The longevity of the running back position is not at all what it used to be. So if Travis Ctn here can add to his game, I'm with you. I think that it actually really benefits him. So why not try when you're in a situation like you said, where they're not trying to? They're trying to preserve Rubber warrants and terms of handoffs, and also, by the way, they don't need a running back right now. So that Zamboni that's right, of course, so I think that's a huge component of this that nobody is talking about. So why not kind of bring him in? You try and maybe think he's got the athleticism and I think, And it sounds like at least according to urban that that's one of the reasons that they drafted him is because they feel like maybe they can brought in his skill set and that only goes to serve ET ends career. What they were looking for. She's Amber Wilson and Peter Burns here in best week ever on ESPN radio. What they're looking for is the guy that they did. They missed out on the draft. He desperately wanted to draft Darius Tony the playmaker out of Florida who's kind of a Percy Harvin Jack of All Trades guy. And when they looked at it, it wasn't so much is a position in Travis Et en going. Oh, we need a running back. Give me a running back. That doesn't make sense. Right? When you have Robinson there, you're in the first round. You're not. The Chiefs who could take had the luxury of going after Clyde Edwards a layer the year prior because, Hey, they were stacked else everywhere else. Why not take a running back? But for them they looked at is like this is a position guy that I could put. I could move in a bunch of different spots. Put him in in in motion. Put him out of the backfield. Using is the third down back if I want to have a mismatch. Traditionally, we look in the NFL is the tight end being the mismatch. But if you've got a running back that can play like a wide receiver right now, that's a monster mismatch. And there was a great part of Travis Et en in the connection with Trevor Laurence. How better to make the number one pick of your draft, The future your franchise film or at home than a guy that he stared at and had countless hours in practice, And I love that trend. Amber. We saw a lot of that right with two and Jalen Waddell. We saw that now with Hertz in Devante Smith, Joe Burrow getting Jamaar chase like I think this was good that front offices are starting to make these matches not imagine in Miami..

Let's stick with alabama with the twelfth. Pick pat 'certain junior pertain. The second the second or junior. I always get that i always do that. Up the second the second patch retain the second so going to the eagles. The eagles play that beautifully. They trade out from six to twelve. They still get the top corner in the draft 'certain than thirteen a little mini run on corners here. The chargers the assumption offensive. Line up. man. They need corner as well. Jc horn Premier premiere talent. He goes at thirteen to the chargers. Jalen phillips fourteen to the minnesota. Vikings and fifteen mike parsons.

Someone who was skewed route runner. And we've seen it. He gets open versus everybody. Giving them a bit open. Specialists were certainly helped daniel jones and the other pick jalen phillips going fourteen to the minnesota vikings minnesota vikings need another pass rusher. Look they were hamstrung because they didn't have. Anthony barr some of the other defensive weapons you now give phillips who was a technician at the point of attack helps them a teammate. A playmate opposite of danielle hunter on the other side. Those guys go hunt together Sixteen through twenty. I'll rip them off. Just give me one that stands out. I've got jalen waddell going to the arizona cardinals met. It'd be fun to watch him there. Seventeen the raiders. Go to linebacker jeremiah. We'll core amoah from notre dame.

"Title things. There's a direct correlation between dogs and lightning. Thank you for that and Welcome back to the show if we get our guests. Throw them on the air and it's going to hurt one eight hundred eight seven. I play you know talking about the crazy. Huge move that the forty niners made. Is there a possibility that the philadelphia eagles had something to do with this all. Well what does this mean. The domino's a very interesting remember minutes after the dolphins traded down from three to twelve and got a couple of first round picks philadelphia traded spots twelve for a pick in twenty twenty two. Miami's own pick. Now they'll just have san francisco and by the way. Here's the thing for miami with laremy tunsil. If people think he was kind of a bus for where they drafted him they turned laremy. Tunsil into four first round picks. Now i said they just traded one back but still the laremy tunsil trade. They cachet into four first round picks. Now would they have rather had a shot. The super bowl of course and these picks might stink. But that's not too bad anyway. So why would philadelphia trade back six spots on. Everyone had them taking one of the top three wide receivers on the draft. Tomorrow chase devante smith or jalen waddell or maybe even tight end kyle pits. Well sl had a story about why. The eagles went back from six. Apparently cincinnati bengals are going to be drafting tamar chase at five. This is a guy that joe burrow is openly campaigning for. They have a connection through their college success and as much as they want to take peninsula to protect joe burrow their thinking montana to rise to plano. We who right here or at the very least maybe a peyton manning to marvin harrison. Just something that they can do for a decade. and so brera. Albert borough sl is convinced as is howie roseman. Joel manager of philadelphia that cincinnati. Take shape now. Apparently they're not as high. The eagles are apparently on jalen. Waddell devante smith or they realize devante. Smith jalen waddell and kyle pits. One of those three will be there at twelve. So this is what you have to look at. And this is why when dominic said that maybe robert sala at told the forty niners look. I'm not taking quarterback all right. Well that's the other thing to let. Let's say robert sala is not taken a quarterback. What are they doing to them are they. Are they getting jim. March chase to a run around for sam darnold. Are they getting tonight. Sewell to protect sam darnold. Because if you look in the draft you gotta get past basically seven eight. Maybe even two nine before you start talking about the first defensive player being taken and that's either going to be mike. Parsons patrick 'certain somebody like that. There's a lot of offense on the board early. So i understand the commitment and the money they put into sam darnold but i also understand that he stinks. I still think despite the rumors that robert sala didn't say anything to the forty niners. I'm convinced that he's doing what he's supposed to be doing. And not to the forty niners. I'm convinced that he's doing what he's supposed to be doing. And not giving away a government secrets. I think they are taking zach wells especially when he had a lights out gaga. Oh my gosh did you see that. Wow pro day. i think they do. Take zack wilson. I think that kyle shanahan really really likes either just fields or trey lance. That's all it is and this whole thing about match I saw mack. Jones play the national championship. He is about as stiff as they come. He is eight drop back passer and if you block for him he's really good now. Some people will point to a staff that said. Hey if you look at completions against the Blitzes and that his numbers are really high. He had alabama's offensive line. Formula the heisman trophy winner to throw to he had dodgy harris the best running back in the draft as well. Now that's no knock on him back. Jones is gonna get drafted and he deserves to get drafted but this was a guy we were talking..

"To forget. Like how are you like how good he really really was. And then you remove him. And in devante smith takes over and so you like wow like both of these guys are really good but it was clear early in the year that i think viewed him as the number one option and may have been one a and one b but i felt like it was very catered to jalen water. And i don't think you guys can do what he does with the ball. He used to richard watson's art. So that's a good teaser. That's a good teaser. So he number two then he is number two. Okay the good. That's good 'cause. I wanna give my teaser on the mock draft and i'll pull it. I got my little yellow pad here by the way which i don't know how you you are buck but mock drafts. I still to put it on the bed. The legal pad. Yeah hammet legal pad guy and then he transferred over the computer but so i had a wattle as the second receiver to go in the mock draft. Do it was an interesting team fit because again we have free agency. We'll see what these teams can do. Free agency i know. The chargers must address the offensive line elephant in the room. Obviously right they've got to get better upfront but let's assume for a second date can do that in free agency bring in a couple of guys and jalen waddell were to be there when the chargers were on the board. And you've got keenan allen. Who's the route runner. You've got mike williams who's the physical red zone guy. They don't have that that element. That's speed element. That waddell brings man just her have a lot of fun with him. Well i mean that's what's missing. Indeed you think from philosophical standpoint. It will be interesting because we've seen this happen a couple of different places year. One is figuring out how you quarterback plays year two is. Okay what can we put around him to help him become an even better player. Well we can talk about the offense latin and it certainly is important based on how we saw it. Play out in the super bowl but man. We've we we watch the buffalo bills put. Why receives around josh allen and win they upgraded the talent around him. His game shot through the roof..

Recently potential patriot targets guys like monty smith jalen waddell and kyle picks receivers tight end quarterback snack jones contrast while atop quarterback so you can see a lot of learning a lot about their skill set because hopefully one of them is a future patriot. Be nice. I would definitely love to see the patriots actually recognize the fact that they are so lacking ask catchers in the past getting department and they actually go out there and get a legitimate and tile pets jalen waddell type of guy because i. It's as clear as day when you watch football. And they bite on monday night this past week so i watched all the games on thursday and friday sunday saturday or whatever this schedule was i forget and you just watch across the a much more explosive and more threatening and just better. All of these receivers are these other teams. You just scratch your head and you're like how did the patriots not have at least one of these guys on their roster i. It's really kind of remarkable not is looking at the draft misses and stuff like that but just remarkable. They haven't just stumbled in to one of these guys. You know tim patrick. For example like how did they not just kind of find one of those dudes. Maybe jakobi meyers guy. They did find a. But i'm talking about somebody that can actually threaten the defense down the seal a not a possession intermediate guy. It's the bucks was like was great. See brady and gronk on the same page but at the same time. It's like mike. Evans is making plays chris making plays. Antonio brown's making plays cronk may apply are running games making plays. It's like like literally. Just give give the patriots. One of these guys. Not even tom but like one of the weapons. They don't have at like they. They have the the bugs have four. Like the fifth best weapon would be the patriots number. One top dot right just can't happen on. Nfl gene door teams. Have four or five weapons are than your best one. You never gonna be able to of them right. I watched that Vikings books game a few weeks ago. And i was like if you're gonna draft these two teams wide receivers in the patriots. Those three teams. How many receivers. The go through on the bucks in the vikings before you get to the first patriots guy like eight nine so something like that..
