"Sports sponsored by AutoZone also really interesting conversation and I think that both Nick Bosa had as well as JJ watt about the turf in about the grass. In college football, when I would travel, I've got so many stadiums where I'd be looking at the turf and taking this is just asking for an ACL spring, or blow out. And I think that the analog has got to be listening when you're hearing some of the biggest stars taking their time in a pulpit. To talk about the turf grass situation, I think you have to stop and listen. Yeah, I know these guys really want grass, but it's like, and I totally understand that. It makes sense, but then you look at some of the horrible grass turfs that are out there like Pittsburgh is notoriously bad, Washington, kind of saw that helped ruin Robert Griffin thirds. You know, knees back in the day. There is a way to go about it where, you know, you can switch to the field turf that's high quality, a 100%. Everyone goes with it, but I think Matt life announced today that they're going to switch their turf next year, so I know that was one of the stadiums that a lot of people had issues with and hopefully we can come to a compromise because like Nick Bosa said, you're making too much money to have your best athletes go down because of field issues. Maybe they need to hire Bill Murray and get him out there as the groundskeeper, right? All over right across the NFL. And the great thing about it is you could play 18 holes in a day and get stoned to be Jesus by the night. So that's pretty good. Not quite your Christopher Walken, but that's pretty good. I've been working on that for a while. You keep workshopping that, okay? I will. Okay. Start here at Augusta. I love that movie. That is a put the clicker down. We call it the remote drop. Anytime that's on. What's yours, felly? I actually still love Shawshank Redemption. I know. That's one of yours too. Fugitive. on yesterday? I don't remember. Who was it that said they hadn't seen was it Stephen Colbert who said he hadn't seen the show? Have you ever seen any of those movies? What's wrong with you, Stephen Colbert? It doesn't make sense that he hasn't seen caddy shit. Either of those I missed out that he didn't see Shawshank. I don't get it. What are you doing with your life? I'm disrespect is real. Disrespect is real. I guess sticking up writing jokes. I mean, since I have no shot of ever going on his show, I might as well say, what are you doing, Steven? Well, you know, you know what Mike Tomlin says though, Susie. What? You've never seen never. Oh. Never say never, but never. What's the best cliche for sports? What is it? Well, rich's favorite is I don't have a crystal ball. Right. You know, one day, I think one day at a time is good. It is what it is. It's one of my favorites. I think it is what it is. It kind of works for everything. Hey, it's snowing outside. You got any comment? I mean, it is. We gave a 100%. That's just the easiest thing. We thought they were. Then you add your percentage accordingly. They are who we thought they were. But that really wasn't a cliche. I think Denny green misspoke in a weird way. And then I just said what he goes to the bears are who we thought they were. And we let them off the hook. I like that one. I mean, I'm a little. I was supposed to be at that game and didn't go, man. What happened? My grandmother passed away. And so I organized a trip for like 6 of our friends to actually was like 9 of us. And then I ended up not going to that game. Because was that on a Thursday? That was a Monday, I believe. Where do we go after that one? I'm sorry. It's all good. I know where she's at. That's a while ago. Don't say it, Suzy. I was going to make a joke off of that. That's a tough, that's a tough joke. So I'm just going to sit on that one and say we're going to go to break. Every so often I can edit myself very rarely. That was just one of my sad, quick attempts to say. Don't say it. Back here on the rich eisen show Bill Belichick speaking today earlier at a press conference. So we always know when you ask Bill a question, you kind of take a deep breath. You hold your heart in your hands and you go for it. So he was asked earlier today about his excellent record coming off of a buy. This is today's Bill Belichick press conference moment. Today's Bill Belichick press conference moment. Holy prefer to win. Bill, historically, Europeans usually pretty good for 5. How important is it for you and your staff to get that extra work in for that week to make sure they're ready to go? Hope we're better than we were last year. What are you saying? So we have day by day and now and now we have year by year from Bill. I know it's Sean McDermott. Powered by hour for Josh Adam and doobie brothers are minute by minute. That's just brutal. You know? You gotta, you gotta dig deeper than that. It feels amazing. Remember when I said day by day was gonna be the Pinnacle though, I'm telling you that day by day it was pretty good. That was it. Sneaky good games, boys. We need sneaky good games. Yeah. Let's go, brockman. Let's go. Come

"Obviously this is not your first rodeo trying to go put him down on the turf, but in terms of the past and what you're seeing now, what is that challenge, JJ? Yeah, I mean, he obviously does a great job in their offense. And they're offense works as an entire unit collectively together and they do it very well. That's why they succeed. So for us, our whole game is just to try and make them uncomfortable. Put them in situations that they don't want to be in where they have to do things that they don't want to do. Now obviously that's what every team ever is trying to do. But that's our number one thing is trying to get them off schedule. And kind of try and allow ourselves to try and put them in situations they don't want to be in. I asked this question of another pass rusher colleague of yours you're going to be seeing down there in Mexico City and Nick Bosa. Do you have any two cents on the field turf and the playing on grass as opposed to many of the non natural surfaces? There's been a lot of conversation amongst boldface name players in the NFL. You're certainly one of them. Do you have any stance on this subject? JJ want? I can say something wild if you want me to give you a headline, but oh my God. I mean, I can speak honestly with John. I mean, if all conditions are equal in everything, it's a sunny 75° day. I want to play on grass. I want to play on good quality grass. I think everybody would choose good quality grass on a clear day. Now, once again, wet rainy games again to snowy games. That's when I personally as a pass roger rather have good quality footing and be on a good solid quality turf. I mean, I want to play on whatever the best possible conditions are to have a good clean game. There are some thirst that are better than others. And I definitely think there are terfs that could be better. I think there are a lot of tourists that could be better. But like I said, if all things are equal and it's a 75° sign day ten times out of ten I'd rather play on grass. JJ watt here on Monday Night Football, rich eisen show as well, getting ready for the week 11 finale against the San Francisco forty-niners. So before I let you go here, your belief in this team's ability to get in the playoffs right now from your current position and you haven't been on playoff teams before and what you're seeing in that locker room right now and we're all wondering if your quarterback's healthy enough to play on Monday night when we're recording this. I'm wondering what your two cents on that subject are, JJ. I'm always going to have belief in my team. I'm always going to have both of my team. I'm going to have belief in our guys. We're going out there. We're preparing we're practicing. Like every single game is a playoff game for us because that's what has to be. With the situation that we're in, we have to treat it like that. And that's what we're going to do. So it all starts Monday night in Mexico City. And we have to go out there and do whatever it takes to get a W okay. And you know, I never look for a headline from you. I always want you to speak straight from the heart. That's my wife. I mean, I did see the Germany game, and I did see their issues with the graphs out there. And there's definitely a difference between how a grass is prepared for soccer games. No question. And how grass is prepared for football games at 300 pound guys pushing on each other for an entire three hours. So they've had games in Mexico City before. Hopeful and confident that they will have a great grass for us and that it will be a good opportunity, but I'd be lying if I hadn't asked about it already. Okay. Sounds good. Well, that was my wind up actually for this pitch for the last question for you. At age 33, you got a little kid at home. Are you are you thinking about the end of your career right now? JJ? I'm thinking, I'm thinking about the San Francisco forty-niners in Mexico City on Monday night. Okay, brother. I'm glad to chat with you. I appreciate you taking the time. I really do. And let everyone know where you're registered. We'll fill up the wad household. I won't tell you because you're going to send some Michigan blue onesie and I don't need that in my house. Well, I was not going to even bring up this subject at all. You know, but I still drink out of the I wanted to give you a chance to grow when things are good. You should have your opportunity. Go ahead. We didn't even play Wisconsin this year. We didn't even play. I know. I know. It's probably right now. You guys got a big one coming up down the road. I'm actually looking forward to watching that game as you guys got coming up in a couple of weeks. Oh, I already spoke to Nick boasts about that one as well. I bet I'm talking with my chest right now. We're the ones going for the winning streak. A little coffee cup bet like you have with me. You know what? I don't believe I put anything on the line, like that one. I was a touch more confident with you a couple of years ago and that sits on my desk that holds rich eisen's tears that you sent me with you, by the way, you have a great photograph of you as a Wisconsin badger. That cup is dry right now. There's no liquid in it, as you know. Yeah, you don't have any. So hopefully for your sake, there are no more this year. I wish I appreciate it. And same to you in the endeavor on Monday Night Football, JJ watt. Bestie you and your family, thanks to the time brother. Thanks rich, how we going? All right, JJ, look at this. It's empty. There's no tears. No tears. Although I'm going home after this, so you never know. JJ also, other thing in case you're out there watching, you're worried about him sending you a onesie. I'm the one who does the shopping. That's a big mistake. Big one. Huge. Huge. What movie? Oh, that's pretty woman. Big mistake. Big one. Huge. Huge. I gotta say, I've done a one. One 80 on JJ watt. I used to be part of the members of the media. He used to kind of bag on JJ, because it seemed like everything he did was for the camera, you know, like, oh, I'm catching passes on the jugs machine on hard knocks because the cameras are rolling and I'm working out in my cabin that's got an elevator. You're just jealous. Come on, faith in people. Well, you know, maybe I don't know how you called yourself a member of the media. Are we members of the media? Influencers and content creators, but I'm an award winning journalist. I don't know what you are, but I'm a member. I have that on my to be a member of the media. But does that count me in though? Good point. Nothing counts. Anyway, I just want to say, I think JJ is awesome now. I really enjoyed what he's done the last few years. The things that he did with the hurricane relief in Houston and just going to Arizona. Now he's a father now. We have that in common in addition to being Jack's physical specimen. We'll also just watch this awesome. And I just my whole point is this I've done a one 80 on the guy. Right. Does JJ, if you're watching. Let's review. I'm the one who buys the gifts. And Chris thinks you're awesome. I think you're awesome. You know, I've been watching hard knocks. You know, catching up and just, you know, we heard the story, it didn't really make a lot of news outlets, but when they had to shock his heart back into rhythm. So that kind of happened over the last episode of hard knocks and you know, he got really choked up because his red is his son was being born and obviously whether you have kids or not, you understand that feeling just by sitting here and watching him go through that. And that was frightening and for the guy to come back and still play that week. Yeah, no doubt. That's crazy. Man.

That is really impressive and really generous and really great. Great way to find the NFL. So which is down and out, obviously, took the day off yesterday and today, but he wasn't so down and out that he didn't have a chance to catch up with the Cardinals defensive end JJ watt, here he is. Joining me here prior to Monday Night Football taking on the San Francisco forty-niners in a home game in Mexico City on Monday night is the three time defensive player of the year and perennial pro bowler JJ watt. How are you, sir? I'm well, how are you, sir? I'm hanging in there. Let's just jump into it. How is KJ watt doing? How's the little KJ watt doing? What are you doing? Good, man. He's doing really well. Loving it, loving life. So you are, what is he four weeks old now? Three and a half weeks old? Where are we? Yeah. You got it. Good job. You know, I come prepared. I come prepared. It's impressive. It's impressive every time. I appreciate that. I want to impress you, but in all seriousness, this is the first time you're playing football with fatherhood as well. I'm truly curious as to how that is working out for you. So far. It's great, man. It's awesome. I mean, obviously everybody always says gives you sense of purpose. It gives you some extra added meaning to life in general. But it also just after Minnesota, we lost. And it was a tough loss, we always tough on yourself after losses. But then when you walk in the door and that was my first game after having caught, you walk in the door and you get to hold your son and you get to feed them, everything kind of goes away for a little bit. And it's just the greatest thing in the world. And then this week, obviously, we win. We're in LA. We win. I get to come home and so when you're bad days are bad, you get to come home and he makes it all better. And when you're good days are good, you get to come home and he makes an even better. So it's awesome. And it balances things out. JJ, I just know that you're a dad that gets in there, man. You are on diaper duty, right? You're doing the right thing. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. I mean, my wife obviously doesn't unbelievable amount of the work while I'm here getting ready for games and on the road, but when I get home, I try and do my best to do the feeds diapers, things like that, trying to take some pressure off her and get some good quality time with the little man. I love it, man. That is so cool. I know, and congratulations to you and your wife on that. And in terms of the football season, you just mentioned a big win against the Los Angeles Rams in LA. How does one win just kind of change things and the mood around the team like that? JJ. You know, I mean, obviously it's we haven't had to start that we wanted. But when you get a win on the road against the division opponent, it's always a big and it gives you that boost that gives you that energy. You have a couple of losses and it's tough. The moods a little bit different, but then you win and all of a sudden everything is cured. And you're happy and practices are going well. And everything feels better. So it's very difficult to win this league. So when you do, you got cherish it, but you also have to try and build off it and continue that momentum. And that's what we have to do this week. And then, you know, this is your first of two games against San Francisco. So the division is still there. I mean, I know that you've already played Seattle twice, but San Francisco has an opportunity to take over this division this weekend, and you have a chance to just make sure that doesn't happen. And hold served. I'm wondering if this is something you guys are talking about in your locker room at all. I mean, we understand we understand the position that we're in right now. We understand that we put ourselves in a position that's not the most ideal where we want to be, but we also know that if we play good football, we take care of what we need to take care of. We have a chance to put ourselves in much better position. But we can only control we can control. And one week at a time, I'm going to see how many cliches I can fit in here. That was two of them. That was two of them. All we can do is go out there and when they roll the ball out, we play football. Do you know how to say it is what it is in Spanish, you might need that for this weekend. I've been working on my Spanish speakers. I can survive, but I'm not going to be fluent. Well, I mean, I could do that right now. I'm right in front of a computer to tell you about the it is what it is right now. Hold on, I'm typing it in. It's as slow KS, I think there you go. Slow KS. We're getting boy bueno. We're getting hooked on phonics right here. With JJ tried to Monday Night Football taking on the San Francisco forty-niners. And now obviously McCaffrey's in this mix, what are you seeing on film that he's added that now might ratchet up the degree of difficulty for you guys this weekend? Well, he can throw the ball pretty well, definitely. So I've learned that. But I mean, he's a weapon. And they have weapons. They have guys all over and one of the most impressive things about this team is how they break tackles. And he's another guy that they've added to that mix whose phenomenal breaking tackle. So you get them on open space. It's very difficult to get down. So it's going to be up to us to make sure that we put them in tough situations, but then when they do get the ball in their hands, we all have to swarm and try and tackle them and get them down because they've made some highlight reel plays on making guys miss. And in Jimmy G what are you, what's the plan of attack here?

"Your own. Admission can make it difficult for others to match in the karoo now. Jj this a susan. Sometime quote i love. She said never worry about being obsessive. Obsessive people make great. All you relate to that obsessive people make great place at the defensive line in the nfl. Yeah i think it goes back to the little bit of crazy that i was talking about. Somebody wants told me that if you expect everybody had the same level of obsession you do. You're going to be very disappointed. And that was something that had to learn early on. Is that everybody's wired differently. People have families that fating. There's tons of things in this world to care about is understandable. There were times. Couldn't understand why you wouldn't care about football at the same level. But now that i look back on do understand but i do believe that the obsessive nature and if you commit a hundred percent of everything you have into goal you're going to have a better rate of success than when you only go half ass even when you were already established one of the greatest to have ever played the game. What drives you. What leads you not close to satisfy a. I don't have drove. I want us to revolt trophy. That's number one in be if i'm going to play the game i'm going to try to be the best ever to play. That's just the simple goal. I'll never understand stepping on the field without the goal being the best one out there because the day that that is happening i need to get off the field by your own. For caravan kept.

"The ability to set your mind to a challenge and make it. So what's the secret to perseverance. Belief and dana confidence. I think it's partially a little bit of craziness. I think that there's probably a little bit of insanity in there where you go through some situations where people would say. Maybe now's a good time to stop and you say now. I don't think it is whether it was some of the injuries. I've gone through with my back the broken leg or transferring schools in college. Whatever it is. There's always been some people that said this the right decision is this the right thing to do and for some reason or another way. My parents raised me. When i was a kid. The answer has always been absolutely a threat thing to do. You mentioned your parents and there's a story about your upbringing. There's many stories to be on this. There's a lot of myth around. Jj but the story. i love about yet. Add john who tell you any a two younger brothers. A profound singular piece of advice. He asked who. What did you have to say response. Somebody every single day before he went to school Act like we would say somebody. He didn't want us to be anybody he didn't want us to do. Is be going through the world and be anybody the average joey said i want you to act like somebody have a purpose. Have a reason for everything you do every day. The codes sir. Lsu dr recently admitted that the line itself was on the cribbed. From the andy griffith show but when he said that what did it say he don't settle stay humboldt but give every task temple attention and commitment. I mean when i was in second grade i don't think i fully grasp the philosophical content of what he was trying to say after a couple of weeks was like somebody but as you grow older as you understand what it is. It's that every person on the planet is a person you have an opportunity when you go out into the world to separate yourself in thrust at that time with schoolwork and it was practiced and it was doing things that can advance yourself and he just wanted us to know that we should be having purpose in drive every time we attack ago. Let's go to your people key. Highschool days go pirates. You developed mono your senior year. You weren't as widely recruited as you might have been. You ended up at central michigan university. Chippewas as a tight end. It wasn't a great fit. You wanted to play day. You were miserable left after a season. Can you describe this low to wish. Jj watt because these are the life experiences we all experienced but our response. It defines us. The whole thing wasn't working out. So i went to my parents and i said i want to transfer wisconsin now when you ever full scholarship to the division one school on your middle class family. You're taking a massive financial burden off your family. So when i went to ask them. If i could transfer back i immediately put a large financial burden right back on my parents and i'm thankful and grateful that they said yes and they told me that they had enough money saved up for one year of school so i got a job at pizza hut to help pay part of the bill. I went to a local community college for six months in in worked extremely hard every single day with the trainer. But if someone come to you in that moment the incredibly difficult decision making life movement and told you then. Jj wa- i am from the future. You will go on to become one of the nfl's greatest defensive ends oval time. Would you believe them now. But i would have believed that. I would start at the university of wisconsin. I didn't have the foresight to see years and years down the road to today. But i did believe wholeheartedly in myself that i was going to accomplish success in my next step. I'm a big believer in creating goals. That are bite sized goals as you can attack in handle and i had one hundred percent belief net next goal go to become a starter you achieve that you're walk on your first year no longer after you went on to become an all american but the night of the nfl draft again. Success is not a straight line people because you were drafted you name was called with the number eleven pick in the two thousand eleven draft. The normally hospitable texans fans they actually booed your selection declaring without playing a down a bust now most plans would find that experience. Cringe a memory to repress but you. jj believe kept a copy of that moment on your food. I saw opportunity means beautiful opportunity. People already have terrible expectation for what i was going to accomplish. It couldn't go much worse than what they already had in their head. So i said. I'm going to show up and i'm gonna make all of these people fans all i'm going to do. Every single day is work. Hard to be the best. I can be in turn all these people in the fans in just one day at a time so any day. I didn't feel like working in feel like getting up out of bed. I just take a look at the article fast. Forward ten seasons inury three-time nfl defensive player of the year.

Because they're the best record in the league. but they had not proven it to mean a player. That's why i just can't say they're going to do it. I don't think they are title. Contenders said i do not the tower thinners because they have not proven to me in the playoffs we have a lot of teams that play well in the regular season and they're not able to duplicate that success in the playoffs. I'm buying the playoff success argument. Both of you guys i. I'm not buying that per se. I just don't think they are because they're just not i think they're comparable to two teams in the last ten years the nba and making fall in one of these two categories the best case scenario the two thousand eighteen rockets that ended the season as the number one seed rate. Defense great offense. They're prepared to play the golden state warriors. They lost chris. Paul and the other team is twenty. Four two thousand fifteen atlanta hawks went sixteen twenty two rate record number one see but we knew they weren't legit. I think they're closer to that. Atlanta hawks team because they're not better than the of the denver nuggets out better than the both la teams so that it's going to be very tough for them to get to the conference championship game. A lot of lucky things to bounce away. And i mean avoiding certain teams right. But they're going to have to play the nuggets. The clippers or the lakers and i don't think they're favourite to win any of those series so i don't think they're even the question is are they finals contenders. I don't think they're western conference. Finals contenders so great season. They're gonna put up a great record but unfortunately they're just they don't have enough. They may need to do something at the trade deadline they go out and get like a guy like a. Pj tucker somebody who can really make a difference in the playoffs. You might happening sunday. So i mean you don't title contenders right. Oh absolutely not. Who'd you be surprised if they went to the conference championship shock. Oh they don't make a deal if they don't make a deal at the deadline is i mean what do you use. Ask better than nuggets user. Now this is my thing the nuggets. The nuggets came back against utah jazz team. They had a three one lead on him. Okay and i mentioned about the west before. The west is full of dangerous teams. You have the la lakers and the clippers who are on top of that western conference my Mountain they had the phoenix suns. Utah jazz yet. The denver nuggets. These are very very dangerous teams. I use that as before last year. Chris you didn't think both a. teams will make it to the finals. That's going to be. It's going to be either one l. a. team and one of these other teams that we just mentioned. Utah did have a lead in the denver nuggets in that role through and went to the conference finals. They had to tough it out in a game. Seven against utah. Tough out against the clippers to get all the way there and there's another team into western weakened for sure say is going to get there besides lakers if they have a healthy athlete davis by the way i hear what you're saying i agree with you but that was last season. I said that all year. I didn't think both la teams finding this season. And i feel we are. Most people thought that the clippers were win this series especially when they went up necessarily going be. La lakers in la clippers. And i still think that. I'm big on. If makes sense. I really am. I think that is a very dangerous team a very complete team. They're playing very well together so they can knock people out. And i don't necessarily think that. The phoenix suns overwhelming favourite against the utah jazz. Either i do. I would pick to win that series. But i don't think they're overwhelming favourite. Also you don't think the jazz are better than their sons. Well we mean. Low mentioned is as playoff playoff time. When it comes to play time you got the worst. And i think when it when it comes to play. They haven't proven anything to me. The barak same and going against an a series against the sons would favor the jazz witness series based on the team. You know based on chris paul and his you know his track record. He has led his teams to play. Off wins okay. It hasn't been the most greatest playoff. So i'm just saying based off the experience that the phoenix suns have and the winter playing right now as one dangerous teams. I wouldn't be surprised if they beat the utah jazz. Say that and i get that. I'm saying who you favorite in this series if they play right now but who will be favored necessaries its strength. I'm saying. I am going to ask a question chris but i'm telling you who will be favored essays would be the utah jazz but i would like the sun out. I would believe windsors our have it as upset as put out there. There will be. I would think you'll being upset because utah. We'll have homecourt advantage. They had the best home court record india. Nba right now. So it is. But they're all. Those teams are dangerous. They're not the lakers would healthy. The lakers are going to the conference by the jazz missing. L. i want to ask you this chris when you were you brought up the trade Possibility pick up. Pj tucker what are they missing for me. I think they're missing that. I don't know if necessarily need a transcendent superstar. But i don't think there are any necessarily any necessary stars on that team that kind of talent level that person that makes a difference. I think that's what they're missing for me. They closely remind me of last year's bubble the playoff bubble raptors teams. Whether you remind me of a little better defensively yeah. That's kind of just the way that they're building. No no it's not. It's not that it's just based on the way that they're built They're they're they're always. I mean for the last. How many years now. They've been playoff. They've been in the playoffs there consistently there s. No slouch right Just like when we talked about. But what level were they. Going to be the lakers in this series. What they didn't last year the clippers aren't very good this year to me so i think you know they are gripper. Well shock last year playoffs right. I mean it comes down to the Could they beat the sons of the sons. Make it. I think did of course right Who else we got In india we got it. Yes so you know. There's a lot of competition there in the west stack. But i think that that team missing that that super star type player you know that she's gonna turn it on and take over games and they don't have that so once again. it would come down to the playoffs. Let's get to a western conference championship. And let's see how far you guys go from there. If you go then. I think we can really you know. Take seriously. But i'm i'm not a pupil known them don't think they're a bad team. Just like you said there's no they're not no. This was noth another. There's no way let's say you're not. You're not trying to communicate but you are if me lower poop win on the utah jazz. They were pooped on. Everybody besides lakers. Because we know the lakers at cream acros. I'm going to okay. How example how about peyton manning up until he won the annapolis. I'm manny one. That first super bowl into indianapolis colts are are a great team. They're considering the playoffs but guess what they couldn't get past the patriots. They couldn't get past the baltimore ravens to get into the soup bone so they finally did so. It's not that that team didn't rank number one in offense. They then had a decent defensive. How great coach. Several well run organization. But it's the fact that there were missing something until they got their something. They finally got to that that that the that super bowl so that's where they are right. Now this is this is a team. That's top five in both categories when we're talking about the utah jazz top five in office a top five defense but what are you going to do and get out of the second round of the playoffs and that's what it comes down to let me say this. Let me this though. So other than the lakers. Who in the western conference has done anything..

"Was just unacceptable and I just wanted to share that I went the other Johnson was such a heartwarming story early on who really a frustrating and disappointing story later on as a year continued and they made it into the playoffs. Now, let's talk about Baltimore. I gotta say I don't know how to feel about the Baltimore Ravens 2020 season. I'll be enough they went they had a great year. They went 11:00 and 5 but I actually walked away a bit disappointed. Now I did predict them to go twelve and four. They went eleven and five. I guess technically that's less than I predicted. But I was pretty close to a pretty good year. They got revenge. They beat the Titans member two years ago in 2019 with the Titans knocked them out of the playoffs. So they got revenge they beat Tennessee this year in Tennessee. They want a playoff game Lamar Jackson win is very first playoff game like on paper. It's a great year from Baltimore. I'm like, oh awesome 11:00 and 5 you made the playoffs. You want a playoff game. But after that I go was it really a year of progress like I mean maybe winning a playoff game was your progress but I felt like and this will make people mad. I know that but I would wonder if she even fans do agree to some degree without about to say I walked away from the 2020 NFL season feeling like the Ravens passing game did not take the big step forward that it needed to take. I was like, I was off cited Lamar Jackson win the NFL MVP last two years ago. I was like, okay this year in 2020 tomorrow is going to get even better which is a scary terrifying thought. And it didn't happen Lamar was good looks fade pieces awesome, right but it wasn't more efficient. You know, I think a little bit of that was the more I felt that at times the month was letting criticism get to his head where Lamar Jackson was trying to be Peyton Manning rather than just allying himself to use his legs and be a running quarterback and run around. I mean, he's got this incredible skill set. There are times where I thought Lamar should have ended the play and ran around rather than just trying to be a pocket quarterback forcing throws the guys who weren't necessarily open, but I think most of the blame needs to fall on the offensive coordinator of Baltimore Greg Roman. I want to see their scheme of all I want to see things grow and change. I'd like them to add another stud receiver. Maybe to help out Hollywood Brown the playoff game at Buffalo was very very rough because Buffalo shut down the Ravens running game and they could not throw the ball when they needed to now, I understand the weather was awful. It was a messy game Buffalo struggle to throw the football team. I don't I don't want to just be really harsh to Baltimore because there were times where I don't know how anybody plays in that game and then later Lamar Jackson did get a concussion..

"Other than that Pittsburgh just fell apart. It was very disappointing. I mean big been regressed. He went from a guy big dents arm did not look the same all year. He had to get the ball quickly was a short quick intermediate passing game trying to get a lot of his hands very quickly, which it worked for Big Ben. He was very efficient, but we needed a really make big plays downfield looked like he was in a zoo and you know, the the Steelers went on to lose five their last six games. It was not a good end of the season for Pittsburgh and it really all led to a very very embarrassing playoff game. Where do the Steelers lost to the Browns? 48-37 Big Ben had four interceptions. The Steelers had a total of five turnovers the Browns in fact LED 28 to nothing at one point. He was so disheartening for a team that started so well to fall so far at the end of the year now, they lost to Buffalo and Washington to play off to himself lost to Cleveland, but that was in a month. Where they didn't play their starters and after the 2020 season kind of the main question around Pittsburgh is what do they do at the quarterback position? I took a ton of questions about this on Patriot. I'm not going to read them all but I want to shout out to Logan Virgos Aiden Holden a couple other people a lot of people wrote in with questions about what does Pittsburgh need to do at quarterback moving cord is Big then the guy should Big Ben be their quarterback next year. What about Dwayne Haskins? Should they draft another quarterback? What should the Steelers do at quarterback next year? I'm going to tell you I would draft a quarterback in the first round, but it's tough because you can't force it. If there's a guy that you're not quite sure about you can't just you can't just Christian podmore Christian Ponder was the Vikings backup quarterback very badly. They wanted Christian Ponder to be the guy. He really quite wasn't the guy but they forced it they drafted and they over drafted him and he did not turn out to be their franchise quarterback so you can't overdraft But it just because you want to just to buy drafting a quarterback in the first round and really the biggest problem is if Big Ben should not be the Steelers quarterback next year..

"They are both safeties. It's also noteworthy that the Bengals traded away defensive and Carlos Dunlap before the trade deadline. I was hoping he'd be part of the rebuild. I was like, oh great. They got the defensive end figured out turns out rid of the guy I was disappointed but they got an offensive lineman BJ Finney and a seventh-round pick so it could be worse in Cincinnati. Now Jill Burrows season-ending injury for me was kind of like a dark cloud over there year. I loved watching Joe play. I was heartbroken when the guy got hurt. However, I'll bring up my favorite Cincinnati Bengals moment from twenty-twenty came. Well after Joe burrow had gotten hurt week 15 the Bengals upset the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night Football. It was glorious. It was awesome as a great win and even crazier they did it with a third string quarterback. They had Ryan Finley as they're starting quarterback in that game on what off okay, and then the fact that they want to watch a game. I remember watching live going like I cannot believe what I am watching. It was very odd game. The Steelers have three turnovers that led to 17 points for Cincinnati them balls and an interception. Ryan Finley had a very super quiet night. He only had 89 yards passing but he did run for a touchdown. And after the Steelers got stopped on a fourth-down the Bengals got another field goal ended up winning $27 Seventeen. It was awesome. I really thoroughly enjoyed that game and I just was like that was kind of the even though Joe Burrows gone. We still have one good thing at the end of our year-long. We beat our division rival. We embarrassed them on Monday Night Football is very very cool. I was happy for Cincinnati fans during that game. Now. I don't know if Joe burlas enough to completely turn around Cincinnati Bengals. They haven't won a playoff game since nineteen. Ninety one that's horrifying. That's a way too long of a time. So I think people are talking about consents analogy do this and that they need to have a good year after we talked about playoffs and really turning things around. I don't know again. He's a great quarterback. He makes Cincinnati fun to watch. I don't know that Jill Burrows good enough to completely turn them around. But what I will say, I guess in, New Jersey Ernest is that if any human being can get the Cincinnati Bengals to a playoff game and maybe win a playoff game? It is Joe burrow, Joe burrow has the leadership qualities. I believe that are required to turn around to franchise like Cincinnati and I look I give the guy a chance. He likes being there. It appears they love him and I'm really happy that Joe burrow. I wish you had gotten hurt. I hope he gets protection and future but I love watching the guy. It was such a blast to watch Joe burrow play football in 2020. All right, guys, I'm going to take a short break when I returned will do predictions versus reality for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens as well as ending with ask. My name is Zach shambler. I'm going to take a short break. I.

"Who hasn't kissed or guy for a long time a great leader to build around and a team a person that dead. The roster in Philadelphia rallied around Jalen hurts. They like him. He's their guy he went over that locker room and I'm very very excited for the future of Gala hurts whether or not that coach works out. I don't know but if the coach page will not be because Jalen hurts is not the right guy to be your starting quarterback in Philadelphia. Okay. Let's shift gears. Let me drink some water real quick first. Now I am late to this news. I think it's totally fine. But a while back the Texans did release JJ Watt their defensive tackle. I was so happy for the guy the dude is getting out of home in thank goodness. Good for JJ Watt number. He's a three-time former NFL defensive player of the year. He tweeted recently free agency. It's wild thoughts and every team in the NFL has made an offer or try to contact the guy. I'm very excited to see where JJ Watt is going to go, you know, even if he's not the same player he was five years ago in 2015 or I guess six years ago. Now time has flown by JJ Watt is still a study is a great player at the minimum a good player. But he's also a great leader in your locker room is viewed as a helpful. You can be a positive leader and a positive presence for young guys in your locker room. That's very attractive for games like the Arizona Cardinals or the Buffalo Bills. They're like, yes, we will take them. Leadership happily plus is good player. A lot of teams want JJ Watt. Now. My number one assumption is and I guess I would love to see JJ Watt bulb with the Pittsburgh Steelers because his brother TJ watt is there whose brother Derek Waters? They're both of his brothers are the Steelers went to the playoffs last year. They are they got I think a mediocre quarterback Big Bend, that would be it would make me pause. If I was JJ Watt. I don't want to go to a team with a better quarterback in my opinion Hall of Fame had a great career the great career appears to be over four big then he's declining but again, the brothers gave it a likely fit that Pittsburgh is the place where JJ.

Philadelphia Eagles trade QB Carson Wentz to Indianapolis Colts for two draft picks

Philadelphia Eagles trade QB Carson Wentz to Indianapolis Colts for two draft picks

"Story of the day. The Eagles have traded quarterback Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts and oh my goodness. It made me very happy. I was so excited. There's a lot to unpack. I want to start though by mentioning a weird thing first. In the 2016 NFL draft the number and overall pick was Jared Goff. The number two overall pick was Carson Wentz. And both have been traded away from the teams. They were drafted by 19 days apart. Just a weird quick doesn't happen very often the guy a number and overall pick a number 2 overall pick gets traded away. Especially not the quarterback position. Let alone almost in just over two weeks apart from each other. That's crazy. Pretty wild now after the trade the Eagles have a 33.8 Million Dead money. Salary cap charge for the 2021 NFL season what that means I will get into that in a minute. First of all, that's actually by the way the most ever to have dead money cap. I guess charge or penalties by an NFL team. It's so much that I actually thought that might keep the Eagles from trading cars and stuff like that might be so much of a penalty. They're not even getting rid of the guy sounds like they did. I thought it's good for everybody Carson Wentz wanted out they I think we're you know, we'll talk about Jalen hurts in a minute, but I thought it was good to get Carson out of there. It is also kind of weird and interesting I talked about Jared Goff previously very briefly the other the the record for the most amount of dead money against the salary cap was Jared Goff. The Rams amount is 22.2 million dollars off. Beat 19 days later by the Carson Wentz trade what is dead money? You may ask it's basically all the guaranteed money the Eagles still owe Carson Wentz after the trade. So even though Carson is no longer on their team. He still creates a thirty three point eight million dollar cap hit for next year. So over thirty-three million dollars off of the salary cap has taken up for Philadelphia. They cannot use that money for other players. It's weird. It's interesting. It's never that's again the most ever pretty interesting. I was surprised that you know, they still trade off a given that but in the trade the Colts got Carson Wentz so the cold they get their quarterback that the replacement Philip Rivers the replacement for Andrew Luck. I'm happy for the Colts man. They've they've Way to make it work. They lost in Turlock. They had to scramble the Mage Jacoby Brissett work for a year. They made Philip Rivers work for a year. Now. They've got what they believe is their franchise guide Carson Wentz good for them. The Eagles got a 2001 third-round pick for the upcoming NFL draft and a conditional 2022 second-round pick and here's what's really cool. The condition. Is that if Carson Wentz plays 75% off Kohls offensive snaps for next year if it stays healthy place the whole year or you know, it's good enough to be the starter all years and get benched. Then that draft pick goes from a second round pick in 2022 to a first-round picks. Oh, wow. I like about that. People are saying the Eagles got a horrible trade. They got fleeced. It's terrible. Oh my goodness. You gotta realize this is probably the best trade they could possibly find the Eagles traded away Carson Wentz a guy who has an injury history has been injured repeatedly over the years. He's coming off of a horrible season where he was so bad the dude got benched for Jalen hurts a rookie quarterback Club. So the fact that Philadelphia made a trade where they have an opportunity to get a first-round pick that's impressive to me. I think people realize that's the best they were going to get so anybody criticizing Philadelphia you did not realize how I think how little value Carson Wentz really had on the market people like nobody really wants him. I think JJ Watts getting a ton of attention Carson Wentz people are very wary. And I think it's really what's really disappointed me. Is that the Bears didn't get him. What did the Bears did the Bears not want him? I don't understand. Maybe they're trying to John Watson feel like the Bears really lost here. They still got home key who Carson Wentz has problems I think is way better than Mitchell trubisky. So debate that all you want. I don't know how you go. Like. Oh the Bears they got a great quarterback still trubisky. I like it. I think another thing people got realize is that I love the trade for Carson Wentz. He's going to a way better team he gets to play for his former offensive coordinator Frank back in 2017 the best year Carson Wentz ever had in the NFL. He was a before he got hurt.

Report: J.J. Watt ‘seriously considering’ signing with the Browns

"The browns on the first teams to show interest in signing defensive end. Jj watt after. He was released by the texans on friday and it appears that the interest is mutual. Cleveland dot com reports that. What is seriously considering making his way to cleveland. To play for the browns due to the cap space they have available and a roster he thinks can potentially compete for the super bowl. Now we all know it's been a while since any big name free agent shows to sign with the browns. Do you think that. Jj watt is actually a realistic option for them. So i've left or swipe right. I think it's very realis- either. You put them next two miles. Gary that i mean yeah. That's really smart right here. Yeah that'd be a great acquisition. I immediately went to the rams as a possibility the idea of teaming two guys who are three time defensive players of the year would be an unbelievable option. Here's the issue. They probably do have room to work it out but it might be a question of. Jj watt or john johnson and leonard floyd in that scenario and that world do you go. Jj watt or do you go the other guys. I would go the other two guys but it's close really close. So does cleveland one. Sign what i said. Who don't want to sign what they're what i

"Moose Johnston later today with reaction. My old buddy Sean Salsbury in Houston for the timing of that couldn't have worked out better. He's going to join us coming up The list. Today is Valentine's Day related and it's fun. We'll take your calls a little later on the most important issue in football. Hambo was here. Bubba is here. Let's go, but we're going to begin in the only place that we possibly can. Yeah, go. Only one place to start. All right in the one place to start is with the breaking news and it was just moments ago. Breaking news from Houston. J. J. Watt has been released by the Houston Texans. What announced this himself on Twitter. He put a video up on Twitter, he wrote above it. I wanted you to hear this from me. And then he recorded a video that he put up on Twitter. I have not been able to hear it because I was live on television. But Adam Schefter paraphrased it, saying that JJ Watt asked for his release he wanted out of Houston. He wants it and he Andre, That's he received his release, and he says that he still wants to play. He's 31 years old. He is the most famous player in Houston Texans history by a wide margin. Andre Johnson is a great player who played there. DeAndre Hopkins is a great player who played there to Shawn Watson, of course, is a great player who, at least currently is playing there. But if you were to describe someone as being the face of the Houston Texans, it is obviously JJ Watt. Who, among other things, raised $37 million after Hurricane Harvey in Houston became legendary for that one, the Walter Payton, Man of the Year award and an easy choice for doing that. He's one of the great defensive players the league has seen in recent memory has defensive player of the year multiple times. I have hambo here, throw some of those in as you can, as you were typing things up there it is three defensive player of the Year Awards. He's one of only three players to do that. The three players who've been named defensive player of the year three times. Lawrence Taylor, Aaron Donald and JJ Watt. That's how good J J has been over the years. He's now 31 years old. He has made $101 million in his career. So let's get the straight talk brought to you by straight talk Wireless. The next step for JJ is not the most interesting part of the story today. Obviously he's a very big name, and Bart Scott just said to me on television. He's still and it could be an effective players. A situational pass rusher. Maybe he will want to go down to Pittsburgh and play with his brothers. With his brothers, who had three of them are very close are on the Steelers right now. One of them T. J might very well be the best defensive player on the sport could have one defensive player of the year this year is absolutely brilliant player. So maybe he wants up in Pittsburgh. We'll see where JJ Watt winds up with older respect to him, and he is an all time great is not the most interesting thing. Most interesting thing is what in the world is going on in Houston, There's just continues. Jeremy Fowler with the straight talk straight talk Wireless. No contract. No compromise. My NFL insider, Jeremy, who was just on TV with me for two hours, joins me on the Goodyear hotline. I mean, Jeremy, what? What should we read into this? I feel like we sit here every single day and I'm going to go live to Houston in about 15 minutes to get an answer to this as best we can We sit here every day and say, Why is everyone racing out of Houston? They're not the only bad team in the league. What is going on down there, Jeremy? Well, if you have a green have a young owner, Cal McNair took over all the super. His father, um, who is considered an experienced and a lot of people believe that Jack Easterby, who is the executive vice president of football operations. Has wielded a lot of power from Cal in town has let him do that on day. So you know this song Lawson's issue is with ownership because he's the one making that call. And, of course, you know, often had his issue with not having say, and the personnel decisions with the GM and their coach hiring even though he was promised that You know, sort of felt live, too, But I think it comes down to just the culture fit and the franchise. It's going in the wrong direction doesn't have a lot of talent doesn't seem to really know. How to get the right pieces in place. Even though Julia and make it 30 is considered very good. I think he's a good hire. But these players were just sort of seeing you know, just the writing on the wall here said you wanted one year left. It made sense to cut him. He knew he was asking for something that the Texans were willing to give him right. And so this is a there's that piece of it. There's the JJ watt piece of it, and I want to give him his due because his tenure in Houston I just mentioned that he's one of only three players ever to win Defensive player of the year three times. He's been a great player. All roads lead to to Sean with this, And you tell this on television today that you have seen at least a partial list of places he's interested in going for those who are not with us on TV this morning, Jeremy run through what you know about to Shawn's wish list. Yes, He's got a list of teams that even least intrigued by, you know, I'm told that Denver, San Francisco Miami or among some of those teams, you know, he's pretty open minded wants to go to a winner, but he's got to wait this out. He's you know, he's dug in, and he's willing to wait. But Texas GM Mika Syria has made very clear to any teams calling, but he's not going to do a deal. And those people believed him at least right now because it comes from the Patriots tree where you don't let players dictate decisions and you know you hold the power and so this is one situation to both sides. Are dug in and this could very well bleed into the offseason. You know, I think teams they're just hoping that eventually they could get up off of that Makes them move on it Now this is Jeremy. Follow with me with school. The school. You mentioned three teams Denver, San Francisco, Miami As places he'd be interested in going, there's one that you left off somewhat, notably, at least as far as I'm concerned. What can you tell me about that? Well, you do the New York Jets, of course, which have a beautiful location in New Jersey, and lots of good draft picks to offer Ah young, energetic coaching staff. They've got it all right on by, you know from what I'm told to Shawn Watson doesn't have them high on his list. You know, when I talked to a source the way I asked, it is, well, Miami and New York have the most draft capital to make something happen and said, we'll get Miami would probably the favorite in that case, but I think the.

"Here at the Texas Please. Because I've had to survive. I got Romeo Cornell coaching me. And I survived Bill O'Brien. Can I get some help? So Yesterday. On the Robin Lundberg Show. John McClane, not the guy from die hard. The guy who covers the Texans. Who you talking about a guy that's like Really connected to what's going on with the team. I don't know if you're gonna find any beat reporter who's is connected. His John McClane is John McClane told Robin yesterday that Houston vans shouldn't be worried that the Shawn is going anywhere. There's no possible fallout Shod Watson will not be traded under any circumstances. I know there's been conjecture for the last two days, Watson has said. Not of this. It's all being late anonymously to national media people that he's unhappy because he thinks the older coming there told him he would run the general manager Hiring by M. And did not and the head coach hiring. Of course, they haven't done that yet. And I'll say there's Robin in my 45 years covering it up, though I've never heard of a team running at GM are by player But the sources quote unquote Cezanne and because Tom McNair told me do it didn't do it and make ma'am at lunch with him and has talked to him two or three times. And Watson has wanted to communicate. And I'm pretty sure neck osario, the new GM, who said he was going to reach out to watch in when he gets back from vacation, and Kabo, and he'll talk to JJ Watt and then because there's two stars in the two team leaders, and he'll talk to other players. Co stereo's really good talker. We saw that yesterday out in under the Patriot umbrella. He was terrific in his own with us, but nothing's coming of Watson in March of last year, everybody Said the same thing that traders with savory wants out. He wants to be traded. He'll play out his contract on cold people. There's nothing to it then, and it's nothing. Who would now he will be back. I tend to agree with John, but I do think that he is kind of pushing off that it's a cascade effect. It's not just one thing like like to me. All of those things are connected. Where and remember there was a tweet from to Shawn Watson has since been deleted. Where he said, you know nothing changes. With the way that I guess we're all the conjecture part is that we all think that he's talking about the way that the Texans could be running. He could be talking about his favorite breakfast place, not Putting something menu back on the item item back on the menu, but he could be talking about that. I ran across this piece. A couple guys that I know and really, really like for pro football focus. Put together a list. Brad Spiel Burger and Kevin Cole. They put together a list, saying Yeah, it's probably unlikely that he gets traded. But if you were going to trade him, you would need to send him to a place that could offer you a quarterback back. And has the necessary capital to send back to the Texans, Ford to Shawn Watson, and they need cap space to be able to pull off a trade. So here are the four places where they could, from a cap flexibility and capital standpoint. Pull it off. So listen up because maybe this affects you. Number one they had the Miami Dolphins. And they're saying the number three pick the number 18 pick and two up. That that would be the where you would start and that you would have enough draft capital to do that, and you have enough cap space to make the play at some point. Anthony put this on the list of things that were going to do at some point this this winner at some point we need to have a discussion about two. In Miami. That's That's later hypothetical. Trade number two The Jets number two number 27 Sam Darnel. That solves your quarterback problem, doesn't it? If you are the New York Jets. And they have some cap flexibility as well. They will be able to run out there. Number three the Jacksonville Jaguars. What would you trade the number one. In other words, Trevor Laurence. Number 21 number 33. So two ones and a two And the Texas will be getting the opportunity to draft Trevor Lawrence back. So that's that number four. The 40 Niners. Hypothetically. Number 12 number 43. 20,022 1st and in 2023, 1st and Jimmy Garoppolo. So they're a couple other place they mentioned. The Bears who shot Watson has been connected to don't tell Bears fans. They will get furious. The Patriots no one wants that to happen. And the Washington football team. For me. It's pretty simple, though. For me. Do what you need to do to make this guy happy. It's not that difficult. All he wants is to be invested in the process. And players like that. Are usually Invested in the process. It doesn't mean that you're turning over control of your franchise. To him. It just means He's got an opportunity Tol make you better and he wants to feel like he is being treated like a franchise quarterback. I'm going to talk about that.

What you need to know: Detroit Lions vs Houston Texans on Thanksgiving Day

"Let's go into tomorrow's games. The first game is the houston texans at the detroit lions detroit. Lions are plus three Let me check the money real quick here. The fifty nine percent of the bets are on the texans and percent of the money is on the texans. The line just got shut out. Texans had a big win against patriots. started you michael. What do you think well. I think i got the injury report for houston for the for the alliance because they weren't the same team. My mouth stafford was healthy in that game. I'm not saying there are good tv. You know there are three and three the last six games but i think that they weren't healthy. They didn't have golladay staffer. It wasn't healthy swift. Didn't play if those guys are playing and healthy. You know that you've gotta take that into consideration especially against a bat houston defense which you play run defense really well as we gave up a tiny arts but they were able to shut down the patriots from running the football. And you know and you look at it they. They've allowed one hundred thirty two points to houston in the last five games and only have created three turnovers houston doesn't create turnovers and allow points and mvp and the shawn watson is having an mvp type season. He's averaging over eight point five yards per attempt. He's only had one one point five interceptions. I mean percentage wise. I think he's been really good. The game doesn't set up good for detroit because houston's too fast on offense detroit too slow on defense the concern you have if you wanna play this game is is what good can use to do against the the lions defensively because if there if the lions aren't healthy they can play well so i think that's the concern is where is the lions helped the factor in this way is i think from talking to people around the league you know. I think it would have been other week. Besides thanksgiving patricia lost his job on after the after the carolina he may lose after this game. If they don't win. I mean i think that's how that's how tight it is. I'm not saying he's fired on friday. I'm not sick. Predicted sanders a lot of conversation about that. Yeah i mean that is obviously worried for the lines is as are they going to show up and play Away from texas. I saw cooks out Potentially i believe i still. Kenny stills has also out galled as probably going to be out for The lines it seems like jonah swift is going to be back who he played very very well the weekend before and the Houston texans are number thirty. Two in the league versus rush. That is my only reservation. Though for taking the texans talked about earlier like. Jj watt probably gonna wanna show up to sean lock. Primetime time game might be the last one you know. We'll fuller's ver- contract after the season potentially looking at shop and everybody's watching you know. Yep but look they had a big lead on you know a detroit out a big lead on on washington they left. Detroit is slow there to the worst two-minute defense at all football. According to the kid that they drafted the third overall pick played only twenty four plays last week. Why i don't know i think. The biggest indictment of matt patricia. Coaching staff is when adrian peterson comes out and says i don't know why he didn't meet three weeks ago. That kids me

He had his team up twenty four nothing over the chiefs in the playoffs then got outscored fifty one to seven. But as a coach O'Brien can at least say he won four division champions in six years. It's as a GM that he made. You scratch your head in one year he traded former number one picture Davey clowney to Seattle he traded two first round picks a second round pick for Laremy Tunsil and Kenny stills and the whopper of the mall. He traded the Andre Hopkins to Arizona for running back David Johnson as of now. Johnson is thirty seventh in the League in rushing and Hopkins leads the NFL in receiving. Yeah. That'll get you fired but not as fast as an oh four start despite having to Shawn Watson and Jj Watt on your team a heated argument with what may have been the last straw for O'Brien. Then again, have you ever stood next to Jj watt they can't say O'Brien doesn't have courage. He just doesn't have a job anymore.

J. watt in Houston and Baker Mayfield in Cleveland both of them at one point said you know to a fan you know that the fans and to them that I know that Baker Mayfield will be one of those guys kneeling or J. J. watt will be kneeling during the national anthem and they both said yeah you better believe we are we're going to show support for people who understand and feel like they have been wronged in all of this and they want to bring attention to this and both J. J. watt and Baker Mayfield shut down those Twitter followers that no no no that's not what this is about and we respect what they're going to do yeah and so to be clear and all this in differentiating them Baker's basically said he's absolutely going to Neil yes JJ said you don't speak for me and if you think that kneeling is about disrespecting the flag yes you have been listening so J. J. watt didn't commit to kneeling which it is is something that could sound like a headline but still J. J. watt speaking out about this all would have been one of my more unlikely bets going into this just because J. J. watt is never been a guy that's really straight about half one way or another he's been a guy that's gone out there to play football certainly been very charitable we know others a lot of the things that have been a part of his past and some of the relief efforts he's helped with in Houston but straining out in this way and offering an opinion on this wasn't something I expected from the three time defensive player of the soul again actually what they said was for Baker Mayfield that someone you know posting about in answering a post from a fan on his Instagram about Saturday that pleaded for him not to kneel Mayfield responded pull your head out I absolutely am and in response to a person treating tweeting at JJ watt pretty sure JJ what would not be taking a knee during the national anthem J.

NFL Week 8 Monday Night Football Betting Picks: Miami Dolphins at Pittsburgh Steelers

"Welcome in to the the board podcast powered by Fox bet week eight Monday night football edition dolphins steelers y'all are pretty excited for which would be a barn burner of a football game I'm your host firm joined by my colleague coast the one the only pain insider lots of enthusiasm I'm trying pain I'm not a premature whistle blower like we saw in Nashville but I still haven't positive mindsets get this thing going believe it you can achieve it and it wasn't the results were looking for either the college or professional football rain six but we persevere we continue to plow ahead and no we have a long season left in front of us so as we do every Monday we'll start the good the bad and the ugly we of course Dr Chow waiting in the wings to break down what the JJ watt injury means for the Houston Texans and he'll update us and some of our favorite quarterbacks the pain. Let's go glass half full what did you see this weekend that had you excited and brimming with optimism where do we start so much Scott the forty niners because I always leave things are more impressive when prior to the game it's not supposed to look that way so we a significant professional money come in on Carolina so it makes the win even more impressive to me personally because I just feel like they exceeded expectation and I managed and I think we both did here right to avoid this game now we dead value is certainly on Carolina like numbers wise right when you look at the number got six six and a half earlier in the week like Mason Rudolph was catching that same number in his first start ever on the road so value is I get it but I think we talked Thursday which is like a horrific matchup right Carolina doesn't have left tackle Bosa continues to like full-blown just eat out there I think he's got the highest pressure rate he's on pace to set the highest pressure rate for any rookie in NFL history right now kyle kind of talked about this the one above it average pass defense he played he struggled against earlier in the season which was Jacksonville the forty niners would obviously be even tougher than that he was the most inaccurate quarterback in terms of completion percentage expectation of sixteen percent below expectations the worst so far this week and we saw that at there wasn't very good can't stop the run we talked about that Cohen Short once he went out for the season and there was a big check mark there offensively from what I'm what I'm seeing from the forty niners is is Kyle Shanahan is just ahead of his time with what he's doing even though it's very basic right it's I think he's in this concerts jokingly kind of the real inventor of the exotic smashmouth right the ball is just like spread around there's all these interchangeable parts wide receivers are getting handoffs but like at its core it's very simple offense and I think the scary part here todd is like you look or seven and no right now in the NFC but they're without their left tackle there without the right tackle there without their versatile full-back call us check and I think I could wrong about this and it's probably not worth the money was paid but I feel like Jimmy G. has another gear that we haven't seen yet either which makes this forty-nine seem really scary well and I think some of that's got to be by design if you're Kyle Shanahan why reveal all your cards when you don't have to right now and then there's no doubt that Jimmy G. High profile passing attack is somewhere there I imagine as they can can you to build chemistry with Emmanuel Sanders able to get into the end zone and his forty niners debut it makes his team even scarier and I know pain we don't talk a lot about futures here because guys don't have access turn prices and you Never WanNa do hyperbole but right now when you look at the NFC or the forty niners the team to beat the more complete package outside of experience levels than the New Orleans saints tough to you obviously love with the saints are doing especially defensively that front seven has really taken another step I do feel like whoever gets home field advantage because the saints home field advantage so massive you'd give the you'd leaned that way with ever team had home field advantage certainly the games get a little bit tougher here in the next few weeks off for the forty niners so we'll see what they're made of but man ah X. still kind of leaned saints especially if they were the team that got home field advantage going to be interesting NFC playoff picture definitely a number of teams on their best day more than capable of putting up crooked numbers and more importantly getting stops on the defensive side but aside from the forty niners pain or are there any other teams and our individual performances that really stood out to you Daniel Jones right if you're a giants fan you have to pretty encouraged in whether you could've met seventeen or six I mean that's it's kind of a relevant at this point you know and I liked I saw accuracy wise again delivered a completion percentage five and a half percent greater than expectations four touchdowns no picks and I think that that last part there with the no picks is really impressive when you look at how aggressive he was six most aggressive quarterback in week eight so far obviously two games tonight but of all the quarterbacks that have played so far six most aggressive and the other thing is when you look at how he's doing it right now in general young quarterback he's been pressured a shit ton right forty six percent of its drawbacks pressured on the season most in the NFL among qualifying quarterbacks and he's this young young he hasn't flinched yet so I I really like I think you have to be happy for your giants fan of what the future could be with Daniel Jones so fantastic performance although in a loss did did get back door there so I know a lot of giants backers were happy that was the sharp side again closed five and a half some places so Daniel Jones got the pros money and look good again that he did one ill advised throw cost him dearly early in the game came back up the fumble yeah it was the fumble that probably could have gone I mean you it's a turnover no matter how you slice it but interception fumble just not sure he's doing it to throw but for anybody to watch that game was interesting there was a bad penalty at the tail end of the first half where the giants allegedly rough the ultimate leads the three for the lions and changed the dynamic a little bit in that context wonder if the giants would have actually had a chance to win that game outright if things had played differently but for alliance do nothing but bad luck I guess they wrote a break or two in that extra appointments made things a little wonky to some of the decision making it the nail to me how to chase a two and it's one of those things where you just start chasing points and you open that Pandora's box and if you don't convert things continue to create that downward spiral but a good performance from Daniel Jones you mentioned his second career game over three hundred yards four touchdowns then a nice job against a depleted lions secondary with the good I want to add one other into it of course it was in a losing effort Mike Evans yet again puts up Gargantuan numbers eleven catches hundred ninety eight yards and two touchdowns but one of those things that I'm not quite sure why the bucks don't look for Evans and crunch time when he was the stat stuffer all game long and the titans apparently had no answer in their secondary starting to get doubled a little bit dried movement of the slot to get them open and got doubled again so you know he had forty four percent of the buccaneers area are gesture die but obviously not enough however no you want to praise him and you probably didn't turn on the game quick enough but he did have the bad drop on the opening drive in the end zone the bucks were forced to settle for three instead of seven I did I did see that drop bring it up I do want to ask you about that when you throw through a little bit of congestion I know Matt Melons in your hands catch the ball all right so I wanted to find out so you your opinion is now well documented around Mike Evans if you're going to be elite God damn elite all right so that that's where I'm going with it was just really annoying game not going to complain right side wrong result and you go into halftime with the two hundred fifteen yards seventy one yard edge you trail that's a problem and then I thought we were gold right you fight your way back you blow you get up six late in the third quarter and then you know you hope officials can do their job good for Devon white by the way rookie did a fantastic job there sniff out fake laid to feel them out it was like a WWF and I believe they're wwe now but I'm old so wwf like a clothesline he just sent the snapper into orbit there in the all clearly comes out its return for a touchdown of course they blow their whistle so you can't you can't review it and it was a turnover on downs anyways because it was fourth down so said of a seven air when bucks up three with under Ford ago we were still down four in the problem is that you know you're not gonna your situation where it's four down territory or not kicking field goal to cover the spread for the good guys chase kicked to feel go forty eight yarder right through the UPRIGHTS two minutes to go get outta dodge with a one point loss single text bruce and eh lepers no team bet the board it's all about covering the number not winning games outraged good guy might have done it now if the good come the bad and this one is tough for me to kind of put down pain because I think they were very good for three quarters but it's the kind of game that you have to win on the road you're at the tail end of it's been a mammoth road trip the Oakland raiders finishing the game against Houston Texans were nearly two yards per play better as far as net is concerned and you look they did give up some penalty yards and everything else they had the football a lot less but they had an excellent chance to win the game on the road they outscored in the fourth quarter and to Shawn Watts and make some let real place to get the Texans the outright victory Deshaun Watson in Hopkins it's like the Russell Wilson Lockwood combination those two geysers like carrying goddamn franchise right now because Bill Brian is just continues to be a mess anyways I hate being singular play guy but you're one and you have a chance to kind of I don't WanNa say ice the game with your offense but certainly go up eight or if you decided to be a savage go for the to to put it up nine and there is a plan like second and six from the Houston twenty four in Gruden calls a run play and you'll lose a yard and now you're backed up to third wall and then you Veasley incomplete there and and you settle for a field goal only go for I love Josh Jacobs but the Texans Defense is superior against the run than it is pass in the Texans secondary isn't link absolute shambles with injuries right and they were down another starter who got injured in the game and as an offense you got tyrone Williams back and Jones who you trade four finally like kind of got into the fold now that he understands the offense after you were healthy as you've been at receiver like virtually all season attack the weakness man put it in the air instead then do that in that one specific drive could've put him up potentially two scores if they'd went for two and you rely on your defense against Watson and you got burn so to me there is some some mismanagement there was some playcalling late in that game as you kind of alluded to but they did blow sure well you mentioned mismanagement pain and it's funny you use such a word choice where do we want to go to Chicago bears and how they handled their performance against the chargers so I didn't watch the game because I couldn't dedicate enough time to it I'm GonNa go back and actually watch today it's one of those games that was really intriguing to me because guys that uh yeah I work with love the charger so much and they with the chargers plus four and a half and plus four I didn't see it so when there's games that's where my guys like adamant that this is the side and I don't see it myself on my I gotTa really pay close attention to this and because I have add I can't do that with like watching games so two one on and watch today but as I'm like tracking the play by play and now that I'm like looking at the data we just download it charges were not decide and we had this debate all week long and you may see something different but the charges were not decide but I'll let you share what you saw from the data I mean I'm just looking at just like two hundred and thirty one total yards of offense in the year two thousand nineteen on the road and you're only getting what would have been like three point two closing number I don it doesn't look like just by all the data that that was the right side
