"Posted the news on twitter. Now Bryant Pratt's finished its brief run. Ten episode run back in April. I watched all ten episodes. I'll give you my opinion after i. read a few of these quotes. Here's a quote. Quote just wanted to let you know some disappointing news before you hear it from anyone else. Briar Patch isn't returning for another season at USA. That was on the wall tweet. He tweeted again. Though I have known for months. It's still a bummer. We had an amazing story plan for season two and I was lucky enough to work with the most amazing writers and crew, all of whom were itching to get back to work. I think we were going to do something special end quote. Greenwald went on to hint that the series could potentially be revived elsewhere quote if enough people keep checking the show out on demand, anything is possible and quo. The first season was based on Ross Thomas. Name IF FOLLOWED ALLEGRA DEAL? That was Dawson's character, zero Dawson a dogged investigator returning to our border town Texas home after her sister was murdered. What begins as a search for killer turns into an all consuming fight to bring her corrupt hometown to. It's knees. The series also star Jay. R Ferguson of mad men fame. Brian Petrie received generally positive reviews, but failed to attract a substantial audience. At least on linear that means that people didn't watch it when it was aired. season, one average just under. Half a million live. Viewers Greenwald adopted brier. PATS for television and executive produced along with Mister Robot Creator Sam is male, the Male Corp and anonymous content, Chad Hamilton near the end of his statement Greenwald revealed that he has signed a new deal with the show's producer. You see pe-. In teas that he already has a bunch of pots on a number of murders and quote so. Greenwald's GonNa try to get this thing back up and running I thought the production was quite good. You could tell that Sam was involved with the production value at least I thought the scripting was the little spotty. And, because of the way it was paced, you had to have something else in there something to intrigue you to really get you to come back. The only reason I kept coming back because I love Rosario Dawson, and I like Samsara. Mel Show that and I'll bring up edge meal. Show that sort of reminded me up and that's why. I said you could tell his involvement with Mister robot now unlike Briar Patch I didn't wasn't really familiar with any of the actors are very few of the actors of the Christian slater, and frankly, I'm not going to tune into a show. Just because Christian slater's on it. I like him. He's a good. He's a decent actor, but he doesn't attract me as a personality so. Yet I was compelled to go back to mister robot every week. Because Mr about had that thing that intangible it. There was something that was very compelling. It makes the sauce up together. So you have the writing the acting the pacing, the direction everything worked and so used to tune in next week to see what was going to happen and Briar Patch just didn't have that. It didn't hit that stride. It looked like they had an idea of where they wanted to go, but it just didn't ring the bell so I. Hope this team. Andy Greenwald in Santa. and. Dolls particularly I hope they do something else they're able to get..

"Talking text Dan Feinberg TV critic for The Hollywood Reporter joins us every two weeks talk TV and a lot of people you know are watching a lot of TV because we're stuck inside so TV is is gonna be a big thing for us for everybody and are you following at the fine print F. R. I. E. N. okay then we got a couple texts here excellent bring all four seven area code says what did Dan think of Briar patch this is the show on USA with Rosario Dawson I thought it was carry it it was never never exactly one thing long enough I'm sure are you sick and what I understand but it wanted to be simultaneously AT work on Wall green peaks he kind of community type show and then also affected only strategic culture with the southwestern setting and to me it was nice and creepy and creepy and twenty three enough the war affected enough is a hard boiled mystery really like Jay R. Ferguson what a great starting I thought was ostensibly solid and thought it generally looks great I just wanted to be one thing or the other just a little bit better okay eight four seven area code since in Texas said will there be a fourth season of Ozark it has not been renewed yes so that is that is the first thing and that looks really doesn't or do you do when the things back glutes days so it's not surprising definitely no one should think it's worrisome also in the middle of our current situations they may be waiting until they have a better sense of when their actions you can write option again yeah so it has not been renewed but it is a show that is well enough she in general that has a certain amount of awards cachet and also without spoiling anything third season ends in a cliffhanger that I would be annoyed if they don't get apologies and that is it does our thing for me to say that someone was loudly critical of those circumstantially in its second season I thought you can have a real bonus and at times works fairly well take it as you will coming from someone who is not a ticket okay but but you know it's interesting that the questions that a lot of the questions that we get from listeners via via text or our phone calls are questions about when a show is going to return we should we should preface this by saying nobody knows because everything everything is shut down there's no production on anything you know that's the the I mean that's that's that that's that that's the reality of the situation we're not sure when anything is going to be back to pre production so on there are so many shows where I will you simply don't know you know even if they were closer to the way into production something like Fargo they were in the production on it but they were so deep that they were searched and there are a lot of shows that were in that situation with each they will probably an episode or two from finishing sultans and yeah they have to stop so another question here three one two same kind of question will big little lies on HBO have a third season that is what we're it has not been renewed and there was some question after the first season if it was a limited series which is where I wonder if the wards and what not or whether it had the potential to be an ongoing series on HBO with our domino's limited curation topics with a renewed at and then the second season it's going to be submitted for Emmy consideration as a trauma there's no choice you can't deliver it again so at least on the surface it is a continuing series it has not been renewed and it's just one of those things where there are so many doctors involved and they all have other things they were doing yeah what was the best seventeen TV show her right breast twelve TV shows zero street is Meryl Streep so someone at some point the site we've got a story probably would have to be deputy Kelly obviously and everybody was actually somehow available and thought it would be fun to do it again I'm sure each deal would say sure come back and do it again but it definitely if there's not an immediate plan to do it okay all right you know Dan tell us about broke on CDS well the first thing I can say about broke is that I really remembered X. yes and I definitely didn't review it and I probably didn't even hurt you not only go because it must premiered last week or something so that's all you need to grow up he gets to come and it is the latest in basically the spring trend of yes family members run out of money and have to move in with other family members in this case Pauley Perrette remains yes please a single mother and bartender and she her sister played by Natasha Lucero and brother in law played by Harvey Camille geraldi G. in the Persian Chris with their money and have to move back in with the family it is a lot of very very easy predictable jokes about this predicament unfortunately probably correct not really all that money in a multicam context hi making millions basically playing our affiliate in America click on Jane the virgin so very wonderfully character doesn't really work as well in this circumstance there are some moments of position to emotional hard in it which makes it better than something like in case you can get it which has a comparable plot and was really horrible this is just not very good and just kind of black should not inspire which is too bad so like a lot of the actors and but little to to recommend it other than that people have a lot of time on their hands yeah okay I happen to be a really big fan of Natasha Lucero so that was the that was the the reason why I was curious about it she feels pretty good here and it's you know it's one of those things where you look and you go to see her doing scenes with Holly Carr at and if you go okay one of these two people is an extraordinarily twenty inch comic and veteran who knows exactly what to do with he didn't win she flashes punch lines and she's gonna give everything she has interested to try to make her laugh on the other one is just you know an actor but not really a comic actor per se just doesn't know how to do the same things at the time she was here it's it's incredibly funny and incredibly talented and has one other striking lead not being used all that well over the years in most things down the Portuguese yeah yeah yeah I I agree I mean you know like as a stand up she's great and you know whenever she appears on talk shows or you know when she was on at midnight and things like that always funny always very which is also the stars on shows I almost always find her appealing which equals that she's gotten to the most part she can start playing kind of bratty sister in a generic sitcom and I feel like she's probably done like fifteen of those over the years and it just never what she deserves she did have been open to comedy central the another period showed that she had a much better because she basically was to helping create at least during the show yeah in and I did not yeah but I wish more people could find better sport yeah she's always she's always great on you know the county central stuff that she does is that that's you know that's her that's her you know that's in that's in our wheelhouse and like me she's great I'm drunk I'm drunk history always really funny on that and and so it's always I I just I just think she's a delight that's all I just think she's great probably you can still skip class yeah I know I know and I just looked I I you know when I saw her in and I was like oh well that's cool but then I saw what it was about I was like oh and you know that was a CBS half hour sitcom and I was like aw man well we should get paid I guess you know to be solved if it only lasts you know the spring and I don't imagine at this point it's going to be back but who the heck knows not not that lucrative paycheck so why is there suddenly these shows the city comes about people losing money and moving in with the family how does that become a thing all right it's kind of it's somewhat bafflingly something because you figure that all the D. shows were put into development basically last spring last winter at the time at which are our president and other people were talking about how the economy was the best economy in history you have all the batch well obviously some writers do you have a sense that there was a weakness in the economy and a weakness that has I mean it's manifested itself in recent months obviously in classic conditions you know and so I think honestly the shows have somehow managed to look significantly more timely as a result of something nobody could have predicted then they possibly could have seen when they were all in development so you've got this you've got into it as I mentioned there's a BBC comedy that think it's coming out this summer with which will Sasso which also was not very good that has a somewhat comparable press the premise so that somebody can do something in Hollywood last spring or just got very very lucky yeah okay all right a three one nine area code says I think CBS's Monday comedies of the neighborhood and Bob hearts ever solar are really good network offerings any thoughts all rights okay I think it's I I don't know that it's quite as good as it starts to make it D. arm I I don't watch it regularly but when I choose and I find it okay ballpark average shola I watched six episodes and catching the show I wanted it to be around the edges and catching a topic combat at some point I will check back in on it won't a disaster as place for comedy it will be answered by a you know was hidden itself the year some Big Bang theory but I think the young Sheldon's we above average single can't family comedy I think it does a lot of things very well I continue to think that mom used the correct second show and that and in a restaurant at this point and it continues to every once in a while deliver an emotional episode that is just stunning FOR a multi camera comedy and obviously Allison Janney and alternates are always great so does have a mixed track record we have a lot of bad stuff to do some decent stuff to make it big stars because the potential CBS without money is very much a good thing okay all right Dan hang on Dan Feinberg is with us follow him on the the fine print F. I. E. N. we got more TV to talk about if you want to jump in three one two nine eight one seven two hundred for talking text I'm in John's house and I'm Tracy whiner or host apparently the podcast for absolutely average parents.

"Did and it was you know in that was sort of on everyone's mind is the hard part and all of a sudden we were through it and just just through it we were done seven and eight and now we're you you know we'll be done nine next week and onto the finale and it just goes and so i'm just trying to be president enjoyed and it does feel like there is a little summer camp vibe by people are feeling the end of it auto remember i'm sorry yeah now i was just gonna say real quick it just came back to me this memory of our my first day which was a shooting that seen from the second episode were walking down the street i mean on the series yeah and working with stephen our director brett for episode two and three and and ten and me you know wondering about the sky was was still grounded you know or not and i was telling him how i felt a little uncertain about it and i just wanted to give him the a. o. k. to at any time without hesitation committed remind me hey you need to bring down a little bit or you need to pump it up a little lead or whatever the case may be and i just basically let my guard down for a moment where you're just a few of us in the tent and i know you're in there and he said oh you're you're a little uncertain about that i said yeah you know it's got a little fear he said oh okay 'cause i'm fully confident you remember that i do remember and i remember in that moment confident in you or just like the whole thing yeah you know and in in that overwhelming sense like that bravado in that moment just really pumped me up and that's awesome because it's also worth noting that two or three days before we had the cast dinner and he arrives in these are producing directories here all season and you mistook him for a because he's very young looking like cats too so it's amazing jays now read stories like like this man this is roger staubach like figure who builds my confidence man so that's beautiful but it's true i and i and i'll just say this because i don't have the right perspective because it's the day after we wrap i'm going to be an edit through i've got other people have confidence for me it goes on and they were going to be seeing each other's ups and stuff which i can't wait to do january when the show premieres i can't wait for you to do press either but it's going to be it's going to be so fun but i just need to sima pal i is going to be doing a podcast from the press bay i'd be totally just busting balls the whole time i welcome that love that just i'll say that you know this is one of the things that i'm really proud of about the show and i'm excited about is that it is an anthology show so some some of these characters will not be back not just that's not a testament to their fate it's just that we're going to be telling a different story if we are so lucky to get another season and so i'm really excited about what what that's doing for the story because we're leaving it all out on the field so to speak to give these characters full arcs in the eighties played playing with a lacerated kidney or whatever whatever will though he came placate he came back i believe yes so in later season which may be something we should look to just just that resort he was is talking about this a lot in toronto just that it is kind of emotional because this is the full story for these people for the most part and the fact that and i felt this when i was writing the finale like oh i won't get to write funny jake spivey lines anymore it makes it better i think but it does make it a little bitter sweet j do i watch a lot of stuff while you're shooting like do you watch TV do you watch movies do you like detroit turn it off and just stick to sports and not sticks sports but it's like like do you watch like do you just like watch sportscenter trying to unplug from it you know unfortunately for me yeah unless there's an empty part of the year sports wise for me because for me it's all about golf and football you like off to golf and football fan you know i i think you guys should run from this point i've i've had enough ghost i'm still i'm still you know my allegiances there with baseball and the rangers and the dodgers i can't zhang really say the rangers and the dodgers on the rangers last second i raised my boys to be dodger fans 'cause they're all from LA so but in basketball certainly certainly the lakers but not -at's no no not the mavs the mavs were competing with saint mary's girls school when i was living gala so you know for me football and golf is what it's all about and so if i'm not in that season i am watching usually i usually shows about subsistence livers in the wilderness reality shows have to hunt for their food and you know make their own way in the wilderness that's what's been most entertaining air may stuff or more like no strain in it not alaskan bush people because that's weird but no more like like the last alaskans or the subzero living or a guide lisera earth jay loves to garden there's a chance of a jump from gardening to allow starts landing concerts fan i do love survival survivor and it's not thirty nine but for forty when all all the champs if that happens it would be over the moon to me the best season is still season twenty which is the first here versus villains len's it was just the best and it's never been ghost agassi but deanne and and you know i got a couple of little gold-mining shows that i like but other than that yeah i really don't give a shit about anything i can i did what what did i just watch did just try and watch them up oh i just started to get into this show game of thrones and among episode three three of season one no spoilers you gotta you gotta avoided what happens in game of thrones throughout the last six years yeah don't pay attention and and i still mad i wanna see that and also i've still not seen the first three and a half seasons of madman i was going to ask you about that did you watch the ones that you want yes yes of course i watched from the time i was on but yeah there used to be a a little fun running gag with some of my friends over there how i didn't know what happened three or four they did they ever try to prank you talk about things they had done in early seasons to see if you believe i don't know they might kind of a moment's like that but they definitely used to bust my balls about about it because they expected me to do my research so i think it's time to unleash the dragons here because now i wanna know who's favorite golfer is but yeah we should probably talk about football because there's no way let's talk off that's a great segue into golf i'm gonna go for men i might i just want to set the scene here because now everybody's friends everybody's palling around here everybody's drinking sodas but a week or two ago i grabbed j. and he made a very brief appearance on on the show and then got pulled in by by paul the PA who introduced to christmas that i think i was on the show the other week and so then i went on the corner to talk to you about important things like katie couric's describe street diorite not realizing that jay had quickly finished as seen in run out onto the lawn because he had just so many sick burns it does he was so teed up and i denied him the opportunity to do this i mean basically i flew here so that you could you could tee off because i was talking to a lot of shit about zeke i don't think you think you're doing what do most people should do and i was so focused on a variety different things including just the eagles that i did not hear about this kellen moore thing and so for wash listeners were still with us on this podcast calamar is a young wonder kin former backup quarterback did not seem a lot of NFL time but used to play a boise state and has brought concepts from boise the state and from college football and from the spread to the cowboys now they did play the giants on sunday and the giants are uttered dog shit but the cowboys look fucking incredible i he's capable of i've just walking i was rowing this because i want the universes persson the universe has given me great gifts and constantly just gives me a little needling for example having my show accepted into the toronto film festival international international film festival and on my flight there for this premiere turning to another red jason seeing toronto raptors star peice kelsey outcome sitting on the same plane reminding ending me just by his mere presence that his team dispatched the sixers in the most vicious way possible which is a game i started seeing her and then on the way home wonderful weekend had such a great time so proud and excited about the show and i have a stopover in dallas texas where the only food the option available to me at nine in the morning was cowboy country grill where every dish every dish is named named after like moose johnson the leon lett expedite it's disgusting and i send take a picture of it and i send it to this man right here and he's it's just like you should eat there it's delicious but all around me was amazed all these you know perfectly kind people lovely lovely accent so it is a cowboys stadium to literally saying two distinct conversations in which the words eighteen in oh were set out loud with with straight faces of that that is absolutely blasphemy so i just want you go into that nor do i condone it nor would i encourage it and rejected so let me ask you this which NFC steam do you hate the most a big we've talked about this onset so it is it is a coin flip for me these days it was the giants for a long time i will say that they it went back and forth for for a long time certainly through the late nineties early offshoots it was philly and the mcnabb area era era i will say that my lasting impression of mcnabb was him doing the funky chicken air guitar boogie into cowboys stadium for a playoff game in which i believe you guys took a goose egg or maybe that was the week before in the last game of the season i using this gift he's texted me this gift and each time i report to HR either way the cowboys won that game and i love that is the the departing image of your beloved donovan mcnabb who you booed when he was driving went went on sunday and then we put thirty three unanswered points so and and listen while we're showering false praise on one another's teams as i will contribute and say that that was some game on sunday listen i had some redskin fans that i was all ready to hail to to the redskins boy and then that happened you know if there's anything that scares me about him it's DJ yeah it's not whence i can assure assure you that i am thrilled to see what josh mccown is gonna do with the team and i think that you have a lot of other pieces that will help him out and as far as my cowboys go i would pump the brakes on any assumptions and he's super bowl hopes i would remind my cowboy brothers and sisters out there to remember the past and know that as much as i i.
"jay r ferguson" Discussed on The Watch
"On the screen go in there and just hang out for like twenty minutes it's really fun and plus his attitude is so great and the attitude around this whole family is just fantastic you know everybody's having a great time and the vibe is really positive and i've always found that that's what you you know yields the best result in the end anyway i've been a part of a bunch of outfits that are not like that and the end result is usually not not that great and for good reason yeah and he is one of the key components of our team that that keeps it running smooth keeps the vibe light and and is just so good at what he does because he what you've worked on so much different stuff you've worked on sitcoms you've worked on weekly like sort of not procedural but you've i've been on like all this different networks stuff prestige stuff so it's really it must be really interesting to watch TV evolve in and i don't know i don't know if it's fair to say become more cinematic but it must be interesting to see the differences now say than ten years ago out certainly think that the choices have increased directors and now now you've got you know you've got little mini movies as a season yeah i did want to say services since we have you on the mike and i don't know how much we talked about this but it's been very gratifying to see i don't know if you know this jacobs j extremely not online but a character that you played recently stan rizzo so is quite popular in the fan base of madmen and there were a lot of questions that i would see people tweeting at me like protect the legacy protect the legacy cassia stanton we when when the treadmill when the trailer drops someone tweeted and i was very proud of the senate to you the legacy of standards though is in good hands with you and bring welcome they they put four stills sales of your behavior and pilot or in the trailer and so i think that we're going to be continuing the standards of really really really want you to have a beard right the the beard is a big deal so just that i think that in the world of twitter referring to you by a beloved character is really saying your legacy the that's a popular character you are you aware of that i probably am not but i certainly appreciate all the love 'cause there's been a lot of it without that love i don't think that character ever would have grown to what he became requisite guests yeah those roles that like like got bigger and bigger as as a kind of went on yeah wow yeah i was pretty you know i had been on kind of a upward swing for the last year or so before that happened after having a little bit of a slump in that kind of like you know pulled me up to work with some really talented people and which i always found only ups your game only makes you better in no matter what it is you do in your life you know and that gig sh- certainly helped to set the precedent for me on many different levels because everybody's throwing a hundred men myself at the time i was just very humbled to even have the opportunity to just be there you know and and then of course it ended up turning into this great thing for me and nino was a life changing career changing the situation that i never saw coming but i'm certainly very are grateful i don't want to blow up your spot here but there's something you told me about it that i feel like i would love if you would share with us on the microphone which was that on your f- is might be apocryphal but this this is where you told me on your first day on the madman set you predicted what would happen with this character you predicted the endgame of this character which wasn't wasn't well received immediately just off of your first few scenes you knew yeah well he was a i mean yes that is true as it turns out but i feel like in all fairness at the time there is no way that anybody could have ever anticipated that that was what was going to happen i just was purely looking at the dynamic hamic between the two characters this standing peggy a yes between stan and peggy and seeing how using my knowledge of history of you know television and how to characters that usually start out as polar opposites yes it inevitably seeded coming together just just like jane chris yeah we haven't even got into the part yet it's coming and so yeah i mean yeah i will say this and i know matt wouldn't care if i shared this with did you guys do he listens it was my first day of work on madden and i was terrified to say the least and continued you'd terrified really for the duration of my time on the show but especially in those first few episodes i was extremely terrified ride and i knew that i was working with a lot of people that you know we're at the top of their game and i didn't necessarily consider sitter myself to be at the top of my game but i was trying to make the most of it so my first day at work but i seen matt would always come down when characters would be shooting their new characters would be shooting their first scenes and i thought that was really cool you know he did make it feel like he was there to make sure you were getting it writer and he yeah he was just you know he was just there for you but so that you know were bad shoot to rehearse this first scene and leading into the sea now no you should know for those fans is out there who you when you're a guest actor on a show like that that hold secrecy in the highest order they only give you the scenes that that you're doing for that episode they don't you don't you're not privy to like all the other shit going on and you know the dynamics between all the other characters here's now co onset are people like yeah and by the way like in three episodes from now this happens like is their internal dialogue about a you know what's interesting about that is no because even the series regulars on that show only knew as far as the episode they we're shooting okay with the exception of maybe jon hamm who probably knew what the game was at the beginning of every season everybody else was finding it out as we went week by week okay i pull matt aside we're about to rehearse this my first seen my first day at work and i pull him aside he's there he comes up to me is very excited for these very nice very loving and say hey you know i've just i've got i've got a few questions it's about this if you don't mind and he looks at me and he says really uh-huh he says really you shouldn't and guy writing so good or because no no because i really don't know what to think think may be the the show was such a juggernaut at the time when i came on but i never seen it and so i don't know with maybe some of it had to do with you know if i'd seen the show maybe i'd be a little bit more up to speed what was going on or whatever it's about advertising or the other possibility which is incredibly likely is that i'm just very slow on the uptake and that there were some obvious things there that i just wasn't picking up on okay nevertheless it made me feel even more more terrified because now feeling like oh shit well okay you know had these questions i thought they were legitimate questions but i don't know maybe they weren't in but we went on and did our thing that was fine i said to him right after he said you shouldn't have any questions i said well the first thing is is obviously these to end up together right and and he looked it laxity looked at me with the first of all the thing i realized that you never wanna start a sentence obviously yeah right and then the other thing was he looked at me with a look of just utter disgust and he said now and i thought okay all right i was off i've i've figured that's where this was going and i figured it would be happening within a couple of episodes the little did i know would be you know four and a half years for that whatever three and a half years or whatever it was but in his defense and he has told me as much and i believe him that at the time that was not the plant okay and that it just became the plan over time for whatever reason and that it was the way it worked out but but when i called him on that in the beginning that he was being sincere when he said that that was not the plan and he was being sincere with his disgust discussed too i really sincerely believe that because you know in the beginning i was a an asshole on the show stan stan was an ask and in this misogynistic jockey dickhead reith cake type guy and kind of timothy albouy albouy fan you could never imagine by the way for elite for my tough book he was originally supposed to be from like new jersey stan rizzo resume really and then after i got the gig and and matt learned that i was from dallas he he almost had him changed to to be a dallas without of corresponded with style back oh god i hope that would have been fantastic somehow thank linda was taken into consideration my football obsessions or but he was just taking into consideration my hometown which is kinda nice john is he a giants fan does he is he a football fan well he was really brought up in LA so i'm not sure i don't think he really gives a shit about football okay on us chargers i would say if he's a fan he's a fan of s. c. c. okay vic trojans guy what else do we wanna talk about man i mean i know you guys wanna totally one thing left really isn't i think so i mean how are you feeling about this like winding down oh it's very it's bittersweet i mean it's a real summer camp vibe here it's been interesting interesting i mean everyone people people have done this before and i have not and people i think new the road ahead in a way that i didn't know and it's that same thing where like if you go on a car ride to place you never been it takes forever and then when you come back and takes fifteen minutes i think people like exactly what we're talking about told me at the beginning he's done full seasons of TV before he was the dp CPI on the great who was shown the act and he was a dp on uni bomber show a couple years before and he was basically like on day thirty five the crew is going to bottom autumn out on day whatever like he knows what's ahead and so he was pacing himself i remember you telling me you were like i can't believe i wrote all these nights shoots or echo i made many mistakes i told him there's an eight hour seen in words who's going to be really bright it's going to be bright at breakfast scenes in a room on stage i was sitting zach and he's just had this like ten thousand yard stare never work with rookie show runner that was your mistake but but just watching like you do get through it and you learn you dab you find levels that you didn't know you had an all of a sudden it does feel like a minute ago we were still in the middle of this big block of five and six axes big episodes that were feeling like impossible in JD some outrageous things that he was incredible in and i can't wait for people to see but they were very terrified of doing on a daily basis races but he.

"Had just said like i don't like these choices please casting agent in LA please give me someone better for this part and it was looking through people and i was like this is the guy and i had open on my computer when i hear a familiar of your voice looming behind me and you're like why's my buddy on your computer screen and we'd already chosen him it was incredible like that that's been a lot of that in this product in a really wonderful way but yeah it's it's it's amazing i mean it's i think it's actually it's great for people to hear even if it's tough for you to live because you mean you're amazing in this part let me let me just save me i wanna make one thing clear right now there is nothing tough about living the life i'm living i wanna make you made audience that's what i mean just internally not being sure like you're out on a limb it's not tough it's a good life in your eye and you're having fun every day but the fact that on the outside you inhabiting during this part was as chris said like ec seen the pilot like it's it's a no brainer in it's so exciting that people are gonna see this soon in some people already have and recognized how good you are in the role it's interesting when you say that because it's like i think that i mean we would talk about briar patch andy wasn't making it like if we saw that coming up yeah it's very much in our wheelhouse and when you see movies are shows like this i think you're like man but that actors just like fuck yeah i finally get to play a guy like this like oh i i feel like i had that reaction into getting the opportunity for sure but i think that there's a difference between that excitement before you're on the day and you're actually do it and vineyard you've got a lot of self doubt creeping in and it's you know something you've never done before and really going into this last weekend with with the film festival there in toronto until i saw what some of those folks were feeling about it after they came out i honestly did not know even though i fully and wholeheartedly trust andy you know there are still a little part of me that that was uncertain and and so look as long as the people are buying it that's all i want for the whole show because it's we were talking about this a little bit earlier and so i'll just a little bit more praise real quick unbelievable flex randy again again back on going back to the cogs in the machine you know metaphor it another metaphor is we are a team you know and it is that too i know it is true you just got you might be on the outs you know life life like te'o and garcia you know what i mean back in the old wow you know i think we're like the brothers honestly but at least go point is that andy has been our quarterback throughout this secrecy there it is i set it and they're not taking it back that's neat if we can get producer qaida drops friday nights when he dropped some bombs than me yeah he's dropped some bombs i will last bit of blowing smoke up your ass which is deserved served which is this was and people have read the book new this and people who've read the book who've been commenting on the internet or tweeting at me once they found out it was you were psyched i i was most concerned about casting this part we had sorry oh and then and then other supporting roles we had some thoughts and things started to fall into place i had no idea how we were going to this as part because the part requires and again i can't wait for people to see it requires someone who can be charismatic and funny and physical and darris it even a little sexy ooh scary and all the gallant the all of these different things all at once and how they don't make actors like that anymore it's not a contemporary it's not all of those things things are not in the contemporary actors guide so when changed the recipe the old actor i'm serious but then when you were so gracious to come in for an audition and and we did this audition in like you had the part like on your fourth line but you seemed very unhappy to be there and i was like there's no question russian this guy's gonna do the part i think he hates me and i think you might be we've never i've never told you the story and i was like i think maybe he is he a mean guy i wasn't sure sure only later that i realised very vulnerable doing this stuff you know and you weren't sure how is coming across i mean i i assume that's what it was yet because i definitely was not in that space because then we had coffee and i was like oh this guy's great and then you told me you were cowboys fan and i was like game you backup joining because i don't think i can either i don't think i can donate initiate or commit to this or the rest of my life we go in a couple of scenes together and then they they saying he'd like to have lunch with yes of course and so we go and meet in and not i mean a couple of sentences in we hadn't even gotten atten into the meat and potatoes of the conversation i mean potatoes we ordered it was a war that is right yeah we i don't even think we even ordered a says listen there's something i gotta get out in the open right now and and we just need to have it out there and get on with our lives but i know you're dallas cowboys fan mocking wearing a uniform and you were in full pads for the meeting and i i may have i've had the pants on and so then he proceeded to tell me he was an eagles fan and and really at that point i gotta tell you there is not a better icebreaker really is there yeah well i mean in a professional setting we did go with something else to talk was yeah with our meeting i mean that was perfect because if we could get along ignoring matignon eh anything is possible through the best thing about sports is that you cannot somebody i talk to talk about a battery at me right frozen in a block of ice he'll throw that at me right and i'll go in i'll give him a hug cowboys albouy an eagles generations hugging that's what we do today's

feel like in a way we've only been talking about football i want i mean like i feel like i have more questions about like what you guys have your nice let's we want to talk more about that i ball right what i wanna know for you chris what surprised you did you have expectations about what that was like or what what is going to be like going on down here we've made a lot of video shorts at the rare so i kind of have a good understanding standing filmmaking christmas turn around and coverage now because that's what they did on me i don't know i told you i i think that the thing that surprised me most was was just the look you know like the look within when you when you're actually in video village and you see someone framed up like that you're in it it's like it doesn't matter that it's not on your your sixty samsung or you're not watching it as movie screen or something like that like that's transporting and when they have that framed up lake that you're just like oh man like this is a show like this is happening and these little like the seven takes of this sort of inbetween conversation that i'm watching are gonna wind up being eight seconds atkins or twelve seconds of the third or fifth or seventh episode or whatever and that was it i mean i think that was like the coolest thing about it was was just seeing the look in process access because i think about that stuff so much when i watch movies and i think about like why did they make that decision or god you know you see a paul thomas anderson moving like what an incredible composition and he's like that's amazing to be there in that moment when when the director's framing up and the director of photography got the actors like as a time time like go time and there's a little bit of energy there that that almost feels theatrical it's cool and also i think to see when you're on for the first timer visiting a set like the graciousness generosity of of everyone's supporting each other and even just for talking about acting like when we're close in on an actor and i won't say the names if we're looking at today let's listen analysis today the actress just say the other actors the scene are wedged behind the camera people delivering lines off camera you know we've done like their scenes when you've been on the phone with his character you know when you call in you know because you're you're there for your scene partner and you're there and it's it's small and i know it's not always some people don't wait is the way but i appreciate it so much that is another thing that makes our outfit special you know i do want to say you should take some time later tonight we're done with this and spend some time i am if you haven't already in zach stent it's true zach are brilliantly to director of photography who we are now in week thirteen or something you're fourteen described himself to me the other day as i'm this is a quote i am just tin cans and dust now like a goat would eat his job is hard its them out of the park all day long and nobody works harder than that dude right there and let me tell you if you wanna be amazed seized by what you're seeing.
"jay r ferguson" Discussed on The Watch
"Littlest things were like we have to get this we have to get this kind of coverage we were shooting and we can't give too much which way but we were shooting a scene with the fabulous alan coming in a few other terrific actors but i won't name them because i don't want to spoil the the characters yeah you're on stage and we were on the scene for four hours like we did a lot of interesting coverage a lot of cool stuff and then i really wanted to dazzle my buddy so i took him to a pre production concept meeting in the lunchbox for an hour and fifteen minutes you cut the air at a certain point yeah was like a power move fisher yeah i was like i wanna see you guys sweated sweat them out the meeting was going on too long yeah no i was gonna actually ask if there is a bit of a sadist of having in there it was it was very cold but but you know chris got to see firsthand just just like the minutia of what background how many background people do we need in seen fourteen be you got to see exactly how exciting his job is on a daily daily basically got to see was when they all are talking about it and then all twenty two heads turn to me and i'm like oh yeah oh yes definitely definitely yeah this is i want to ask his jane jacobs for san that i you know tough but fair is how i run the show oh man there fists there's a lot of the crew proved given them time shifting not like time travel but like chase character becomes unstuck in time like desmond and the loss no and you're answering answering questions about stuff like like in the past day and night sure but the thing that's fascinating is that so he and i have been talking for eight years almost eight years on this podcast yes yes about amazing the mechanics of storytelling the mechanics of television and like the overall trends that we see and then you get an experience like this and just even in one day i can see any show in any episode is just accumulate humilation of these little decisions right like these little little things where it's like do you want me to go over here like do you want me to gesture this way do you want me to step back or step forward and then all the little things that you guys are deciding in this like tin box in the middle of the desert chewy hang this here we're gonna bring this back with with the intention but i think that i've definitely i thought this lot we used to talk about this i used to write this criticism pieces but i think the best shows have a consistency of vision in the decision making and there's no decision that's too small you know someone who's style you compare me too often jay matt winer famously would like every ashtray right had to be exactly right every detail l. and that's what made that show the masterpiece well what i will say about our our dear friend here mister g is it is very reminiscent minister of that and what i love is a vision that starts and if you think about it like a pyramid and i'm gonna blow our boy up real big right now i it rips my whole out not so sure it's going to fit through the door after this but what i will tell you is that it's kind of visually like a pyramid and you've got the idea idea at the top right and all of the facilitators of that idea live below and they are equally and i know within andy will back this up as important to the idea coming to fruition and so everybody is a cog in the wheel everybody's has got to work in unison if one cog breaks down the machine breaks down yada yada yada but the idea has gotta start somewhere and it starts at the top and it trickles down and it is so fun to watch a jeez evolution and progression into this spot that he holds now and embracing it and excelling at it really and as a radical emotionally withholding that is amazing when you yell l. people loud enough which you get what they will do for you it is i'm going to interrupt compliments go ahead stand it is i know it's coming at the end of it but that is the beauty of it and you've got chris got see today which is that we have so many people here are so good at their jobs and their jobs are things that i don't even understand how they do it and i mean i was joking with our operator raider matt today i pointed the camera and i said i'm sorry what's that again but it's really not too far off from the truth the getting everyone who's so incredible that they're tasked to buy into the larger thing is the hardest part and the biggest challenge and the biggest responsibility i don't take it lightly and i appreciate it but i also love memories now were almost done we started shooting the pilot a year ago almost under the season we have two and a half weeks left just how much of the pilot was UJA and rosario and brian garrity elbowing each other and giggling and pointing at me as baby took his first steps ah because you knew especially you because you've been on a series for a long time so you knew all the things that were about to crush me well crush you and lift you up so and new positions that you maybe had never considered yourself being eligible for that you were very eligible for that you were forced to take you know what i mean and that can be really a tough adjustment for people you know it can be yeah how is this changed and we haven't really talked about this explicitly but how is this changed the way you i know you don't watch TV the anymore but if you did not a fan now change the way you've been watching this same thing goes for you as somebody who makes it somebody who's on it like when you watch minehunter when you watch game of thrones and when you watch anything you watch like how much of it is i can just enjoy this is something that's all my screen and how much of it is like fuck that that was really tough what they just pulled off there that is a piece it now understanding i think just the difficulty that goes into other driving or they're filming this at magic hour at dusk like all the headaches went into engines of magic hour no spoilers oilers may appear in briar liked to tease one of our first eighties bob that i'm writing a new scene which is a dinner party of children at midnight which is like the combination of impossible things to do but i think it's along the same lines it's the idea that there are no easy shots there are no throwaway away moments that every single moment in a scene is the culmination of all those people working right and was multiple takes multiple different coverage and then it was scored than it was edited and every every second of every frame is a decision in a actually quite a number of decisions so i think it would be very hard to go back to being just a casual watcher critic that's great news for the pozo no i mean so this is my i'm announcing japan critic d for the moment he does do it and then really like what because like what's interesting is now that you have a ton of time nine yeah you save your time for the stuff that's like purely enjoyable like you'll go watch it's you go watch vendors or succession which which was which i can watch both too impressed by or that it's just i find it like it's joyful ed just love it but yeah i think that i mean you've been on yeah it's an easy answer for me i mean i just completely dissociate myself when i watched stuff see don't think about like whatever process everybody else is is gone through i i mean i certainly appreciate great performances with actors and usually elite those performances or that appreciation for those performances is coupled with my acknowledgment that i am completely incapable all of producing such a performance and therefore having another reason to kind of kick myself down a notch example of a performance like that were like i couldn't do that like you're watching it and you're just like and don't like not like my left foot but like something where you're just like oh christ that guy or that one really just pulled something off off there i'll tell you this is a weird choice but it's funny because actually resign and i were talking about it the other day when we both kevin appreciation for this performance just popped into my head when you said that but vincent enough frio as alien alien in men in black wow now now this guy right great answer he's got he's got a fucking laundry injury why are we allowed to constantly he's got a laundry list of great characters that he's played right well yeah of course and you could love those would be the normal go to's i think but for me at least as i've gotten older what i've come to appreciate more are not not just the actors that when the camera is here just up in their faces they say the words really awesome but it's when their whole body body is exposed and they're using their entire body because a great who i consider to be my yoda this guy's name is glue ziskin wonderful director from brazil taught me a long time ago that the the actors body is greatest tool and that so often film acting that tool is abandoned for the sake of the close up you know and so would i i really have come to appreciate his full-body acting you know where it's not just the voice that's actor yes the fingertips toes it's the knees it's the the neck it's the everything i was going to say that also there was it's been finding i've learned so much more about acting from working with so many great actors all of whom declined to appear on this podcast the we can talk about it but it was for example we had a great time making the pilot and everybody got along wonderfully and then when word started to trickle out that that allen who i'm just thinking because he was working today was joining the cast everyone got a little excited and it was kind of cool to think of it that way because everyone was excited i'm going to get a scene with him it kind of raised everybody's game in a way because you know when you there's someone that you guys admire i can speak i mean because this conversation many times over after allen to as we kept having these wonderful actors come on board a phrase moore's question so like you were excited is it a challenge is it sort of a spark is it the opportunity to learn i think that if i were my younger self i would have said it's the opportunity indeed challenge but as my older self i would say it's the ability to learn do you remember when that change the prior eight hours ago no i would say cotton actually talking a little bit about this on the plane out here probably when i started to have family yeah that's i mean that's a pretty common and like i think that's a pretty common turning point like any profession in anybody's life that that just changes your perspective as a childless man i'm just i'm still going forward but it's okay i think going up to the biggest podcast in the punched him in the nose the need for speed still take you live your life it's really okay i can we talk a little bit about the material without getting too into the plot yeah okay reviews out they're now they wanted to reviewed in variety of traces because it was premiered at toronto but JV done something like like this before like a new orleans this no way this is a breaking of ground in in many different respects for me and that that is because i feel like most of my time in this business has been spent playing characters that in some way or another other weather directly specifically or loosely are connected to me in some personal way you know there's some personal experience that i can lend to that character's experience and this is the first time that i've played a character where sure i genuinely can say that like there's really nothing on a personal level outside of maybe tiny little things that i could relate to and so it was very scary and it's still scary on a daily basis you know i have leaned on andy cindy constantly because i've needed some sort of barometer to make sure that we're not going too far into the land end of cartoonish but it's such a broad borderline farcical character that it's a fine line to walk and and so so it's been very terrifying and you know it's interesting again something cat and i were discussing earlier which is the you know we were just talking about how like you hear a lot as an actor about older people you might respect that talk about how they always try to do what they were most afraid of and what's what's you know would there most intimidated by and i don't know that i've ever taken that leap before this and i don't know that i could ever ever say genuinely that i had really crossed over that line before where every day when i'm going home i have have no idea really if it wasn't just when you told me that he was gonna play jake is like hell yeah i mean this part jake spivey is a former military guy military intelligence was the poorest kid in town has come back as the richest person in town iraq and tour a very very glib person i would say broad broad strokes sometimes but deep emotions running underneath at all in your your brilliant in this role and it's really true and we know you're acting because you have to play people who loathes each other which is fantastic it's exciting and that's not that's not ladies gentleman by the way my friend cat here an and i have known each other's through in high school best friends since high school have never worked together professionally than serendipitous ed asli cat was cast as one of my adversaries which was amazing because we were sitting in the house that doubles as jake house and i.

morning because that's such a relief from i just wanna know oh how your day's been so far because we've been together for hours but i feel like we haven't checked in so i definitely felt like i was gonna die on the flight in terrible turbulence coming in and i actually went through this whole process of trying to choose which podcast i would be listening to upon death like listening to bill do i watch a little secret shouldn't be listening to a friend or your boss you're listening and it has shifted i be recording my last will and testament uploading it to the cloud you should have been listening to audio radio pulled out of gravity's rainbow play mode oh well i think you could do the voice memo and i just hope that it makes it through right they're doing great things with these blocks reporter cameras yeah so i will never make fun of andy's fear of flying again i'm not fess corinna flying but i do think that it was in jeopardy but the whole days been incredible it's been incredible education i i've been on a couple of sets but never the intimacy of this one have you ever been to albuquerque briefly on my way to santa fe and i i feel like my my opinion of albuquerque not precedes me a little bit i've been a little bit critical about podcast it's gotten around great city great to have you guys like albuquerque i love i lived here before before we did the show i lived here about ten eleven years ago and no show was it and it was a show called easy money and it was a very short-lived show but incredible opportunity the time in my life our ki- our first child had just been born we were completely broke you know it was is really a gift from the heavens and came out here ended up meeting people that would go onto become some of our closest friends and had never really spent time in albuquerque and and so i was i was pretty excited to come back and now we've got three kids and they all got to come out here and spend the summer and he he's a big booster i'll say this when we first met you were saying you were excited about coming down here and you tell me about some spots and got the vibes going in a positive direction i gotta say i think there's something to it where depending on where you are b grew up right so if you mean andy from the northeast you're from texas you from california originally from chicago born in chicago and calix albuquerque's this is not a full through it's not perfect theory but i think that you're route like regional orientation changes a little bit because it's like i know people who think baltimore's terrible president i was gonna say that and then like boss vass people don't like boston or people don't like DC but i love those cities because i'm from the northeast mainly it's familiar so is this familiar for you for as a texan yes i think that that is definitely part of it it starts to geographically kind of feed into that sense of home that i have and then also the people you know there's a lot of cowboy fans out here so gross and you know god love him i mean the they're americans seem so it's it's like what are you gonna do but i mean does that surprise as far as proximity is concerned that that should be the team that they're bullet for that of the cardinals aren't going to do this yet but i will just say hey that all before the pile during the pilots as like there's this great brunch spots my favorite spy you gotta come with you gotta come with a certain point we had a free weekend we were we were all here during the pilot j generously says let's go we're going to go do this and he grabs me and he grabs eddie who's also in our casts and we've got to brunch and we walk in place beautiful place l. pinto jay says table for for like nitrate looks there's only three of us so they lead us out to the courtyard beautiful table for four exits down jason down i sit down to fourth spot is for his tough huff book that he opens up to red zone oh my god if i if i'm not mistaken it was the first sunday of can we see was zero dark thirty and they look in my mind that's what it was well and then he ordered they said can we bring you the complementary mimosas and he's just like that's a rookie move bro like just keep the orange juice breath bring the bottle you bring the bottle and you get a side of OJ and then just so you know though like we are out on the patio people are having very different experiences they may or may not be watching the games james or as intimately as we are there were one or two people in plus size wooden jerseys or whatever j. as the man of the people that he is dove into the crowd diners diners greeted each one of them with a very convivial how about them boys and i do feel like it was a setup it wasn't as vicious as the time he came to the APR session wearing a cowboys snuggie no that was intentional fraud no the thing at the at the restaurant was you know just purely the the situation at the time the facts on the ground that just happened to always be the situation anywhere you go in america when you're a fan of america's america's team since i digress guys guy let's just ask you this wanna just wanna just go somewhere with

There is a multitude of threats there are national security the threats that pertain to terrorism that are evolved from the ones that we faced many years ago but there also are additional threats and so it's not that the old ones have gone away but they have been compounded by new ones and what has changed in terms of the apparatus and tools to respond to those threats and prevent anthem from being actual attacks in the US Congress acted since nine eleven to create entire bureaucracies to do a better job to protect the country so that include clued the creation of the director of National Intelligence.

Is that the leadership Russian of those organisations has been so in stable under this administration and leadership matters when it comes to making sure that agencies are are doing the job as thoroughly as they can now. I want to go back to the Department of Homeland Security and just looking at it. Did you see the creation of that department department eighteen years on do you give that a thumbs up or thumbs down in terms of the decision to create it. There's a lot that has changed and so one of the areas with the Department of Homeland Security that we need to pay attention to is the original mandate it was given which the majority of its original main authorities it was given pertained to counter terrorism awesome over time the department priorities have grown and so they're not just devoted to counter terrorism they also obviously have significant border and immigration it.

"Zach opponent preview time looking at this Michigan Wisconsin game looking at Wisconsin. Specifically and the line started off, I think it's seven points. And now it's moved to nine and a half, and then your research and watching the badgers is there. A good reason why people are betting on Michigan to not only cover but to move that spread a little bit. Yeah. I think I think there's been more positive news. The reason these things moved by a couple of points is probably more this this this line. I think was right. I just think the injury stories of each team are. Going in different directions. Michigan you feel pretty confident resigned. Gary is gonna come back. There was talk yesterday that Chris Evans should be good to go there. You know, seems like you're probably gonna get maybe one of the three defensive tackles back. So in that regard. You know, you're doing you're doing a nice job, Wisconsin. It has been a different story. Just even just today. Isaiah louder milk, which is one heck of Wisconsin name. I they allowed or milk only defensive end last year that was still on this year's team that played last year crap. He's out for the game. And and so, you know, and there's other ones Scott Nelson. They're they're starting free safety. He's gonna miss half the game due to targeting. And so I don't know if there's another one that I would consider a major injury van winkle. I think is questionable. He still working through stuff position is linebacker star linebacker at double tat one of their three returning linebackers with double digit tackles for loss last year. He's he's kind of interesting Gary boat. I think where I think he'll play, but he might not be able to play every single snap. So, you know, I think I think the louder milk one is is a big one. And I also wonder if people that are betting are just big on Michigan in the more. They think about the more they can. Can see the wolverines pulling away with this game. I would probably still take around seven. Well, one of the things that stands out to me looking at Jonathan Taylor who you're talking about living the break how good he has been through the course of his career one hundred and forty one yards rushing. He's averaged in his in his nut game career. Well, yeah. I mean, I'm gonna throw this stat up on the Twitter later today. But he if he gets one hundred seventy four rushing yards on Saturday. He'll have hit three thousand yard rushing Mark for his career by for context. Koran Higdon hit two thousand two weeks ago. Jonathan taylor. He's he's only played fourteen games and he has over twenty eight hundred rushing yards. I mean, he's just. You know in in in. Yes. Wisconsin runs the ball more than anybody else in. Yes. Jonathan taylor. Takes the Baltic bulk of that carries. He's he not only is he among the nation's top five over the past year and a half in rushing yards. He's also among the nation's top five in Kerry's, but he's also averaging six point seven yards per carry. He's a he's a force. He's able to break it free. He's able to find the whole I think the the phrase that Devon Bush Devon Gill. Jasmine, tell us all use this week, which means Michigan really believes. This is true is about Taylor's patients, he's able to wait for you know, he's he's a very NFL savvy running back, whereas some some teams have really fast running back. Some teams have like really strong running back. Some teams just have like really agile. He's everything he's the total package just adopt dominant force. And my goodness. Could you imagine if he'd stuck with his commitment and gone to Rutgers? You gonna Rutgers no won't even know about them right now. Well, I mean, they might but he'd be like that good back on a bad team. You know, kind of Boston College has had that San Diego State has had that where their teams like maybe six and six or five and seven or whatever. And then, but they have this running back. It's gonna run for two thousand yards. But it wouldn't be the same kind of thing. And yeah, I mean so so Wisconsin's running game. I think you're just trying to slow it down. You're not gonna you know, they have five returning offensive lineman starting last year. Yeah. They've been how the offensive line Don relative to expectations on what they had a little bit of change early on in the season with with some of those guys. But this is a group that I mean, they talk about having three potential first round draft picks. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. And and they have three that were in the CBS sports. They do a mock, you know, big board top one hundred prospects three of them were in the top sixty. And then the the. The center who was not one of those three because he's younger. He was thirteen. All big ten is a freshman last year, you know, and they they all it's it's almost like Wisconsin over the years has built a offense of line creation machine because they they are all within three hundred nineteen and three hundred twenty six pounds. Wow. Five offense of lineman ranging within seven pounds of each other. And and both the guards are six six tackles are six seven and the center six three. It's like they just created this perfect offense of line in. So so it's very good as far as how they performed expectations. It's probably impossible to meet the expectations that were laid out for them. This is a unit. That's that's really going to challenge Michigan's defensive front in part away. Alex Hornibrook we talked about it is interception rate is down. His completion percentage is up his yards per attempt is up he's targeting deeper. Even with a couple of his starting receivers having missed some time due to suspensions. I mean, it's you know, he's able to be efficient. They're able to wait for those routes to develop because they're getting so much time. Well, looking at it, the the thing that stands out to me is you know, they have been surprisingly a offense that's been capable of the big play through the air. Which is now what you generally think of of Wisconsin, you think about it the team that the grinds? And then when they, you know, they're they're beating you down and all of a sudden, there's an opportunity pasta, but they actually have more twenty yard plays through the air than they do through the ground. Although most of those against most of those against Nebraska's past week. We're running plays. I will pretty consistently. Put some o- some big plays up, but they have some weapons at at the wide receiver position. Besides having a good tight on. Yes. Yeah. And Jay Jay Ferguson's, a very good tight. And he's a redshirt freshman. He's come onto the scene. But AJ Taylor. You know, he's he's a good capital. G good football player. You know, he was supposed like a lower case g do you? Not know that freeze. Not okay. You're just being a but in the middle of my sentence for no reason. Yeah, I see. Yeah. Anyway. No Taylor Taylor's, pretty good. And they have experienced the entire offense. You lose. You lose a couple players here and there on offense, but their offense is so experience. And that's that's such a such a help for them. You know, they're just able to take what they did last year and build honest. Yeah. AJ taylor. He is averaging who nineteen point seven yards per per catch. That's that's pretty good. And and then now they have been in a little bit of a situation because quintiles contests. Had the sexual assault charges. Brought to him. He's been suspended. Dany? Davis was tied to it. He was not charged with anything. He was tied to that situation. So he missed a couple of games and he's been kinda slow coming back. Eight catches ninety yards in three games. But you know, again, if you're able to have time for some of these complicated routes to develop, you know, someone like Eric Groesbeck who's kind of a running back receiver type of player. He's able to make some plays Kendrick prior nine catches one hundred three yards. I mean, it's just the offense is I don't think it's like this machine. Like, Ohio State. This is going to rack up forty points. But they're able to do a lot of the things that they want to do and a lot of ways that's the key to football. How many times do you have breakdowns often dictates whether or not you win or lose a football game? Right. Yeah. Do all eleven people. Do what you're supposed what they're supposed to do. The percentage of times that happens is directly correlated. So that your success on the field. So yeah, I mean, you know. Hornet broke. I wouldn't put him as top three quarterback in the big time. He's probably fourth in my book, but he's more efficient. He's able to complete some downfield passes and the offensive line is able to do its job. I mean, I think this is a game. When you look at it. You know, it was kansin is. And they've been the same type of thing for a long time. They have one of their better quarterbacks. If you go through Wisconsin history. He'd probably be the other than Russell Wilson. He'd probably be the best. I've in this little run of fifteen twenty. Yeah. I mean, so he's one of their better quarterbacks. They have a weapon on the outside. Nj taylor. They have another good. Good titan. Ferguson. They can run the football. They're going to be. There are certainly going to get a Cup opportunities against Michigan's defense. Michigan's defense hasn't really faced a challenge this season yet like this even Notre Dame with as good as their offense. Align was was a sprite team. This is not what this is going to be. How does Mr.? Begins front seven holed up where it's the big the big guys that was always one of the, you know, the Knox in the past. I mean, they've had some pretty good success. In fact, Jonathan Taylor did not get loose until late in that game a year ago against Michigan. And so that is you know, when you're going up against large offensive lineman. Every time you take a hit it wears you down a little bit more than it wouldn't a typical game. So it's gonna be I expect Wisconsin to have some success offensively. If you're you're looking at Michigan go, well, they're gonna you know, what is Michigan's give up seventeen points or less. I don't know. If that's the case this week. It'll come down to does Michigan's offense get turned loose have a very good chance. Well, here's the thing. That stood out to me is you know, I'm a big fan of the idea of like the twenty yard plays. Because our the big plays that happened against an offense or defense because Michigan has relied a lot on those big plays offensively. Lot of chronic Higgins touchdowns. You know, he is he is one of the top five players in college football with six Russia's of thirty yards or more. You look at Nico Collins who. They've developed as a consistent downfield threat. Donald people's Jones has had a lot of big plays in the passing game. A lot of Michigan success has been there big play potential, and when you look at Wisconsin, and you talked about the losing one of the savings for the first half of that game against Nebraska. They gave up five plays of twenty five yards or more in the passing game. They gave up five plays of twenty yards or more against Iowa in the passing game. This is a this is a second. And I was not a this is a secondary that has been giving up the big play in that fits right into what Michigan likes to do. Well, here's here's why they lost. All they lost their first string Cornerbacks from last year. And they lost their second-string Cornerbacks from last year. Eight you know, it's very very hard to lose four Cornerbacks in one off season. The only four that played, and you know, kind of turn around and replicate that and on top of that the two of their Cornerbacks their names escape meet at have to look it up while you talk to other quarterbacks are also questionable gametime decisions, injury wise, more more injuries that that Wisconsin's undergoing. And so it is it is I would assume Michigan's receivers have the advantage over Wisconsin's quarterbacks and then safeties Dakota Dixon fantastic football player. Scott Nelson is also pretty good. But he's out for a half, you know. But it's it's just the it's by and large other than Dixon. It's a completely new secondary. From last extremely young. I mean, you're talking about out of their out of their threat or four stars in their second year less. Yeah. And then all four their backups are on their second year less. Right. So I mean, it's extremely young. That's what they're defensive ends are like two like three redshirt freshman and a guy who had never played before because of injuries flour milk out. I mean that that takes a that. We'll say all of Sega polo. I hope I say his name close to right? He's very good. He's he's pretty good. He was double digit tackles for loss last year to me. That's like a threshold for like where are you an effective pass rusher? Reinfected in the backfield and their linebackers are great. I mean TJ Edwards probably first round pick. He's he's pretty phenomenal. Ryan Connolly is. Just mean, he's kind of like maybe isn't quite fair play Saint position. He's kind of like chase win avenged where he's never seen is like the best player in that group..
