"jj watt" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"I just can't believe i've waited this long to ash. God's about the things that. Jj watt has been doing recently because j. j. watt very publicly cut a hole in the ice in the earth and then took photographs where he is descending into that ice and he is showing you how he cares for his body by getting into ice water and allowing the ice water to heal and make his blood circulate and allow all the healing. That comes with ice tubs. And i was just curious how you experienced all that. Because i heard you and saw you the other day wondering aloud how it is that. Jj watt was going to find the places to endear himself to the arizona audience and he took some pictures around the locker of pat. Tillman and that is something that is very close to the people of arizona. It's also something very polarizing to the people of arizona and he said that it was an honor to be in the sphere where pat tillman's jersey exists and. I'm certain it is an honor to be in that sphere. It should be an honor to. Jj watt to be in that sphere. But it's the most. Jj watt thing to do in the world right is to take a picture next. I'm not going to be cynical about that though. I understand anyone cynicism when it comes to. Jj watt and him giving off the athlete that you wish your athlete to be and i also understand. This is something we've been talking about for years. It is an excellent way in that sport where the bodies are disposable and all the quarterbacks are the only ones who are stars to make yourself a star is to be the white guy. Who's captain america. Who is selling all the things on defense that a defensive player of the year can sell an also is just maximum. One hundred percent feeding all the mythologies and you can question whether it's sincere or not houston until now did not question whether it was sincere or not. They might question it now because he is quote unquote betrayed houston or not been loyal to houston and so the fans will do what fans do and do you make us feel good. No you don't make us feel any the feel good anymore okay. We'll question your sincerity. But this is something that we've observed about. Jj watt for wild from a distance and stugatz has been maximum cynical about jj watt psalm. Asking is the first man to accuse him of not actually having a log cabin that is sparse and the log. Cabin has an elevator in the log. Cabin isn't actually a log cabin. How did you experience him descending into the earth after very publicly cutting up the ice so that he could descend and take pictures in the icy earth. The same way. I experienced everything. Jj watt just hop into an ice bath like without telling us. Just go do it because that's part of your job. That's part of recovering from your workout. So dan i cannot believe that we pay this much attention to a guy who does all these things during the off season and has deposed one of them it an effort to try to give off that. He's making himself better. He's working very very hard. And then he shows up first actual job which is sacking the quarterback and he never does it. So explain that to me. Why are we in namur. Jj watt and. why can't. Jj watt something as simple as izing body without telling the entire world why you know. He has a cold tub in that cabin. Did you see the sauna. Like on the fifth picture of that thing in fits the entire arizona cardinals if you wanted to put them in there. It's ridiculous you don't need to cut that hole into the middle of the ice do that. Also he wasn't cutting it. If you notice the pictures wasn't in the pictures of the people cutting he was taking the pictures of the people cutting and also jd. Watch strikes me as someone who would be offended if someone cut ice and hurt the earth. So i'm surprised that he's going out there hurting the earth cutting the is going down into the water and also also think about the deers end. The animals that run around there that now may fall into that ice water and die. Jj watt because of your selfishness because of your instagram picture. Get over yourself okay. So billy feels the same about. Jj watt are there. How could you not honestly. Yeah you feel any other way about him. I mean well. I think your guy. You guys have the minority opinion on. Jayjay what he did become a star. Somehow people are tired of. Jj watt overrated. Yeah put it on the poll. Guillermo are people tired of. Jj watt yesterday when you do the whole isis thing and you cut into the earth and you sit there and take pictures of yourself. It's fine when you have twenty one sacks when you have five and a half it becomes a joke. I mean seriously okay. But you're doing the move that we sort of marveled at the other day when who was it did the move. Was it you. That did the move. No it was Chris russo got confused because he got fooled by a tom. Izzo twitter account. That wasn't tom izzo. And so the first order of business was to try to rip. Tom is those record and then he realized wait a minute. Tommaso has been kind of good this year. so i can't rip the record. You ignore that. Jj watt wasn't it a couple of years ago that he had double digits sacks. Was that not a couple of years ago. Do i have that wrong. Let's play them as he's done for us late. Let's let's sixteen sacks. I think three years ago since that. It's been a complete disaster. Let let's play for the audience where it is courtesy of mad dog radio and sirius. Xm where it is that stugatz learned all the things he needed to learn about. Pivoting when you've been accused of something like farting on the air. I'm getting a little mileage out of this with the so-called fought yesterday On the air when i was doing our show on february twenty fifth that never goes way It was blowing my nose It wasn't a fought but tom. Izzo has just repeated. Just re tweeted. That and tom said it still could have been a fought so they go so. We're getting a little. Thank you funhouse Nice job by front house from that standpoint. We can use all the publicity we get from that so the The fart that wasn't is a big topic now. in michigan state michigan state's winning games. I was gonna kill thomas. How about one the ball games. They want something thinking mouth shut. Plus by kid wants to be a basketball coach. And he's run into is once it dries. I'm inside so i gotta be nice so they go from from that standpoint. Is this generational in terms of how young people tend to roll their eyes as. Jj watt feeds the machine on what old people want from their athletes. Because i don't believe the. Jj watt is polarizing. I believe there are some people. And they are the internet snarky people who have a distaste for. Jj watt but. Jj watt is pretty purposefully. Whether he's doing it consciously or not still got. You can't dispute that. He's feeding the things that sports fans like right that sports fans generally like their athlete to be pure and wholesome and believe in the right things and do charitable things. And if it's a little look at me it's okay. Hey look at me. Because he's doing good things in working hard and being about integrity and team right up until his team loses and then he flees the premises. Because he's mad at bill o'brien and everything that happened around his beloved texan. You know what. Sports fans like dan. They're like saks. They like winning. They like plays that help their team when they don't care about an ice bath in the winter of it results in no wind. They don't care they don't care if you do all the right things to get yourself ready for a season in which you're gonna play nine of the sixteen games have five sacks down. They stopped they stopped carrying right at that point when the production doesn't meet what he's doing on social media that's when they stop caring and start rolling their eyes. I'm telling you he's corny. He's not doing the right. These corn pox guy. Listen to me. Who cares what he did. In two thousand eighteen. You know who won the super bowl in february of two thousand eighteen the philadelphia eagles utah gang. How did.
"jj watt" Discussed on NFL Live
"The new orleans saints. The chicago bears in the las. Vegas raiders will start the cowboys. Don't see the cowboys being able to make a move for russell wilson. As much sense as it might make to some to do that they would have to get dak. Prescott traded to seattle and dak prescott would have to be willing to sign what we think will be franchise tender to make that trade possible. Why would dak prescott cooperate with the dallas cowboys and allow them to dictate where he's going to go in the future. He doesn't owe them at and so he's not going to do that. By being in the position he is now dak. Prescott has an unofficial no-trade clause because unless he signs his franchise tender they can trade them. They cannot so dak prescott controlling that situation. So it makes dallas illogical and improbable nothing in this leagues. Impossible though so you never know but in illogical and improbable new orleans saints. Interesting would make a lot of sense. What i would say here is that there's a lot of history between these two teams in terms of traits. Sean payton and mickey loomis new orleans. John schneider pete. Carol in seattle they had a trade once for jimmy. Graham that was a big deal they had a trade. Wants for. Max unger big deal. They've made deals and they are familiar with each other. Mickey lewis cheaper worked in seattle at one point time. But what can the saints realistically give back. That would fill the seahawks quarterback position hill. That's not gonna work not enough. And then they're pick is at the back end of the first round and they have cap problems so as great as russell. Wilson would fit new orleans. That is not an easy trade to make more likely in dallas but still very difficult to pull off but the saints are very creative if they could be creative to seattle willing that would be a spot that would be worth watching chicago now. The bears once made a blockbuster deal for khalil. Mack and they really don't have a quarterback that they are planning to build around going forward and matt nagy ryan pace or fighting for their jobs. So russell wilson would be a godsend a lifesaver. Somebody that they would want to bring in somebody. They'd have to bring in again. What would be the trade package in. Return to make that worthwhile. It's hard. this isn't the new york jets with pick two or the miami dolphins with pig three a team that could just a pig that would enable seattle to be able to take its quarterback of the future where chicago offer can't even offer l robinson hasn't signed his franchise tender and so two tough trade to pull off for chicago too but to me. They're they are desperate date. They have to get something done. And so i never discount desperation because that's always an interesting situation. And then the las vegas raiders. That is a team. I think that makes some sense now. The issue there is that the raiders like derek carr. They're not really looking to move on from derek carr. But if you get a guy like russell wilson that'll be tremendous but is it enough to make you want to give up your first round. Pick maybe future one end. Derek carr to get russell wilson. Are you willing to give up all that to get a new quarterback when you already like your quarterback your current quarterback..
"jj watt" Discussed on First Draft
"I was nervous kuyper aria. There's a lot of players still last night. I don't although he may make twenty two straight. Flights are twenty two lights in our roads. Follow them. you're working to grinding cop at. He's out having a ball so times. Enjoy hanging out the young all over the place doing a great job on when those go geoghegan's but hey while i'm working he's not. That's why it's catching up. No i'm not. I'm just i've just showing. How somehow you guys always make it. Look seamless scum the draft which is of course now less than two months away. We're going to get into a couple of takeaways from mock draft two point which came out last week. Todd has another mock draft coming out scheduled for this friday. That'd be mocked free point. Oh i wanted to start though with some big news yesterday in the nfl. That we think. I think has at least tangential tied to the draft as. Jj watt decided to sign with the arizona cardinals. He was in free agent for about a week or so and obviously could sign with someone because he had previously been cut. Todd i'll start with you. Were you surprised the. Jj watt picked the arizona cardinals a little bit to be honest. I i had heard. Cleveland is a strong possibility in some other places But it changes the landscape a little bit only because i last mock draft. I had them going with the defense vanden now with gregg russo. I think it was the event from miami. So now doesn't mean that they won't take a defensive end or or an edge rusher but it does you know put some other pressing needs in hand. Cornerback is is one of them and that on the offensive side. I think you can't get enough weapons around around your young star quarterback so we'll it'll be interesting to see but i did not expect. Jj watt to wind up in arizona. Would you think now little surprise. You look at this team. And you say okay. When they're trying to do with a sign on shammar jones coming back the quarterback position sixteen. I really think they tended. Maybe jay seahorn from south carolina son of joe warns so they can get that need their and todd mentioned the defensive line. There's not a guy that you're gonna be tempted. I don't think that early. Todd thought maybe rousseau and a little early for him yacht that he had that one year those fifteen saxon. Two thousand nine hundred eighty. I went back and looked at him. What's sort of sacks for coverage sack where my handle the ball to lockheed hustle and get in there he's got an anticipated snap count. Better work wants some faith. They checked it inside. It was very impressive. I like that aspect of his game. But i think the fact that there wasn't an appealing defensive. Lineman made i think. Jj watt war track to the arizona cardinals and he's going to be thirty two later this month mel. So does that mean. I mean if you thought defensive end was a need coming into this off season for the cardinals to signing a thirty two year old to a two year deal really mean that. It's no longer a need. Well this draft. I think is going to be interesting. It's not and i were talking about the lack of defensive. Pass rushers guys off. The i'm reading right here. It's gonna be able to basically parlay that into something good in terms of free agent market. But i think there's a guy of you thought about the ravens. It's time a model. With matthew judah on various smith yorinobu big couple of guys thought. I think have a chance. I'd be curious to see. Where do you think. Go chauncey golden iowa. I think when you look at a guy. Like victor cagey from duke nurse rump. The second also pretty good but a demarcation were barg want and ronnie perkins oklahoma with three is. I thought maybe you get a little later. That could turn out to be good. Pass rushers once during the disagree. I really like rough. And i think he's going to continue to bigger and stronger and he's athletic and he loves the game you know. He's is councilor good line. But a but i think rump of those guys to be a trump where you're going to get him makes sense. Yeah yeah i would say staffed somewhere in day to maybe least alleviates the need for the cardinals to potentially reach for a pass. Rusher early in the draft as jj watt Despite not being quite the same blair. He was earlier in his career to three time defensive player of the year still an incredibly impactful guy. We want to circle back to mel's mock last week. We tease the opening of it and got into a couple of trades. Because for the first time ever todd mel has introduced trades into his mock. What went through your head when you saw that. Mock draft live for the first time with three trades in the first round. Fifteen years of stubbornness finally just falling apart. That's what went through my mind. And i love you know i love now. We always talk about it. And he's been my biggest supporter but the one thing i couldn't understand and i finally broke the truce. He always says we had a handshake. I don't believe we had handshake broke the truce with him a year ago and i made some trades and he got all flustered and then he spun. They said this year was it. My christmas gift kuyper laid allowed to make some trades right. And now here we are. And he's making more trades in this first round box than i am in my first round. Wait till my three point. Oh comes around the back end of the first round middle early. I'm gonna have like sixty drapes. But i do think it'll be interesting to see when you come up with your three point zero one friday time. You're obviously going to project trades and we looked at now free agency beginning. And what seventies national really complicate matters insurgency needs where players go. What happens with the shawn watson. looks like he's traded. Where's he going to go. Yeah we think he might be traded. End up with shawn watson. We had jeremy our dory melchiot saturday guys of denver as possibilities. Who knows but a lot of impact from free agency and trades are going to have a direct effect on these not dress yet. That's and that's the frustrating part because free agencies later this year right and usually i have a mock four or five days before free agency started and then all of a sudden you know ten of the teams with the needs that i had projected were Off the off the table and so. It's it'll be really interesting especially with the quarterback and five potential quarterbacks. Going into the top fifteen to twenty six this year and all the veteran quarterbacks in the movement that we could see. That's what to me is going to be the most fascinating part alleged breakdown..
"jj watt" Discussed on The Sean Salisbury Show
"If they well he could have gone to. Green bay could've gone here could have gone there teams that have been in the playoffs the last couple of years. But that doesn't mean you're still not chasing a ring and don't don't believe that you can be part of something that you think is getting better and improving and can at least have a shot at you know. We all know that only one team can win it every year and you know last season. The cardinals were six and three and everybody was looking at as obviously as a potential playoff team and perhaps who knows team that could make some noise in the postseason. If they got their season ended badly very disappointing and now the organization is trying to do. Make the move to continue improving figure out what happened last year and improve on that and so from. Jj watch them point. I'm sure that you know. Yeah it's no guarantee never is in the nfl. But i'm sure he's looking at this and saying hey. This is a team on the right path. I'm sure he likes the story that was told to him. And the way he was recruited in a sense by michael bidwell the owner and he gets very involved in these things the owner of the cardinals along with the general manager. Steve kind and with the andrei hopkins. There who i'm sure was You know a part of kind of quote the recruitment of him that he says. Hey this is a team that i can have a real impact on and help to get to that point where you are considered a possible championship contender and i would think this team went. Probably went harder after him. Then some of the other teams that have been mentioned not to say those other teams didn't want him but i'm sure the cardinals standpoint. They were trying to impress on. Jj watt the impact that he can make on this team. And i think sean how his presence can help other get other players tarazona. Maybe have some players who are on the brink on on the fence and saying hey my staying in my going to accept a little less to stay here in arizona that go out in the market that we all know is going to be a big unknown this year. I think that was that was part of the intangibles of this also. so anyway. that's my reaction to that comment that people make one of the great writers and covers sports and covers football for a long time publisher for all cardinals. Fan nation in one of the best in the business for a long time howard balls or joins us here on the sean sows ratio howard. How many players away on defense are they. Did they get a step closer with him. Well i think they definitely got a step closer. How how how many players are way. They are on defense. A lot depends on. And as i mentioned there. There's a lot of work that the cardinals have this offseason. They have corey peters. Who was a great nose. Tackle hurt his knee last year. Unrestricted free agent on radic stepped up in chandler. Jones's absence played had an amazing season. Unrestricted free agent Patrick peterson longtime corner. Not what it used to be but can still play pretty good football unrestricted free agent. So a lot depends on what happens with those guys. Are they back or not because they leave then all of a sudden that leaves you some more questions especially corner. I think corner is going to be one area that the cardinals are gonna look long and hard at weather's in free agency or the draft. They need a corner. Even if patrick peterson comes back if he doesn't then they probably need to and that though that's not going to be easily accomplished. And so like. I said a lot. A lot depends on how they deal with some of these guys that are we'll be at least are unsigned as of now. Marcus golden pretty good. Pass rusher who they acquired in trade last year loves being in the valley started. His career here went to the giants for a couple of years and then came back last year. He's been restricted Scheduled to be an unrestricted free as in. So all of those questions have to be answered before you can really look at this and say here's how far away they are. But there's no doubt. I don't think the. Jj watt helps them Shaun i've heard a lot of comments that oh man. Let's it'd be great the pair him now on the defensive line with chandler's young right here that i say hold it. They don't play on the defensive line. Chandler jones doesn't he's an outside linebacker three four yup and. Jj watt plays on the line in a three four which is what clayton houston and what of course the the cardinals play but he can help against the run which they really need help on the line and he can create some of that pressure which isn't easy to do and a three or four from a defensive linemen which can get pressure on the quarterback and helps the guys behind him and so i think all of those are the things that he can bring to this team with his ability on the field. Hey howard what are you are you. You've covered this long and interviewed players forever and watched it. Do you do subscribe and buy into a guy like j. J. watt and i do that when they walk into the building that the immediate respect and guys play on the practice field because they watched the way he works. Absolutely one hundred percent on that. And i'm sure you saw the rant Last night on one of the local tv stations. They played the rant. He had Headed into week. Seventeen about what you what you need to do is professional whether you're eleven and four or four and eleven going into the last game of the year yes that's definitely what he brings and it's an accountability and the cardinals have pretty good pretty good leadership on these on this team. A lot of the guys. I've mentioned have been that. And now you add another one to chandler jones. If patrick peterson's back larry fitzgerald is he going to play another year. I think he might be looking at it and saying. Hey you know what yeah. I put my body through it again because this team is serious about it and i wanna help the team get to the next level. And they have to re obviously a fair contract and he hasn't made a decision whether to play in other seasons. So yeah i. I don't think there's any doubt that a guy like that just at if the team doesn't have it he brings it over the team already has it. He's adds even more and sometimes from the inside when a comes from the outside and can bring that that's one of the great writers covering football that we have in the business and for a long time howard balls or jones is here on the sean south. Show do the cardinals in the fan base. Just the whole buzz about cliff. Kingsbury leash long or short howard. That's that's a real good. I think that you know there's a lot of people say all. He needs to hire an offensive coordinator. He needs to hire someone else. Well he's gonna call the plays for better or worse. That's what's that's what's going to happen. And of course when this offense was humming there it was as good as any offense in the nfl and when it did didn't it looked ugly. And that's what they have to find the the balance there and to make sure that those and it happens with all teams. It's not like every team doesn't have some even the great teams. Don't have three and outs at times. But we also saw what can happen. When you have one of the great quarterbacks in the nfl and patrick mahomes and when they don't when you're not protected in a game like he wasn't against tampa bay. What can happen and so. That's one thing the cardinals Have to do so. It's i. I always say on how you feel about it but you know the a team doesn't do well in a game on offense all of a sudden they don't look at the offensive line because most people don't have the ability to do that. They don't look here. They don't look there they just say. Oh the quarterback or the play caller. I asked why they lost. That's that's what the problem was. Well i think most of us realize it goes a lot deeper than that. And i'll tell you they were games last year. Especially in the losses were kylie. Murray was under siege. Almost as much as patrick mahomes was in the super bowl. And you can't operate a consistent offense when that's the case so they have to do some improvement on the offensive line and a lot of other things get a running game. That's better but it starts with the line and that's that's one area especially in the interior that the cardinals have to get better if that offense is going to be more consistent and take some of that heat off cliffs but the bottom line is he came in on a team that had the number one overall pick in the draft and they won five games. The first year improved the eight last year. And so obviously they have to keep ascending from that but at least for now. I don't think that he's in jeopardy. But obviously you need to. Everyone wants to see improvement including the front offices aside. Howard my final question to you is about about the quarterback now. I'm not influence in your decision. I'm just gonna you. How i felt about him coming out. I said on this show. And i said i said you had to trade. Get rid of. Josh rosen draft column. I think he. I could care less about the measurable guy wins and i think he's going to be spectacular. I believe he's a franchise quarterback. And i think in the next two or three years and we mentioned mahomes and watson and those guys that murray's names going to get mentioned in that group. He's not going to be mahomes but he's in that group. I think that they got. I think they've got a special quarterback. Am i right or wrong. I think he is special and has to be more consistently special and he has to learn how to throw in tight windows a little bit more and not get balls. Deflected of the line of scrimmage and. yeah i mean the measurable going to have an impact. I mean drew. Brees fought fought through it as his whole career but he he achieved You know tyler murray's five foot ten and so you have to figure out a way to To to avoid those you know bands part of the offensive line. Howard keeping their harleys down in a quick game two right now. That's you're absolutely one hundred percent right. And when he was when he was humming and the first nine games of the year. And you had eleven rushing touchdowns boy he made it almost impossible for teams to defend them then they started descending them better They they played better defenses. And we saw you know some of the some of those problems that occur and they and they have to improve it. We see also opposite the andre hopkins and like i said run the ball better way too. Many negative plays where they run. The ball i lose two yards and all of a sudden. You're in the whole right. To start fall starts which get you get you know. Get your team in the hall. So he he's exciting to watch. He's fun to watch. I will say this that. I wrote a story on on on the website yesterday and i said boom maybe maybe the cardinals should go all in and see if they can acquire shawn watson as much as i love tyler. Murray boy if you pull that one off then you'd really be. I think it might be impossible to do. But i just put it out there but but cuyler murray has shown all everything that you need in a guy to win. Now he just has to keep improving. And i think he is obviously crucial one for him and this team howard. You watch it down. Don't put it past this front office. They make some stupid decisions here so baby able to pull that off and listen as much as i love. Cuyler murray watson at this stage in the game is obviously an upgrade at a. If it's a possibility you gotta write about it because it could be a probability with this front office the way it goes publisher for all cardinals fan nation on the best. Nfl writers in the business and a good friend. And i always appreciate you coming on. Let's do it again soon. My man we'll see how that impact works with jj congratulations. I spent a lot of time.

"jj watt" Discussed on Mornings with Keyshawn, Jorge & LZ
"Is those six guys up front. Not five six because i have to include the tiny. Yeah and you could also make the argument and this is in the eye of the beholder that they might have the best guy to pull the trigger to get it done. I mean you know john. Lynch's done a great job. I think in many ways less need has done a good job but they regretted some of the moves they've made and then we'll have to wait to see exactly what happens with arizona. John schneider senate over the course of time and he's got that good simpatico with pete carroll's lodico houston protocol relationship. Connect turn on the sap this morning if you're listening on espn deportes with the symphonic. Go there but the bottom laurie. The bulk some of our listeners. If they have their dictionaries i didn't have. I didn't have ready to understand. But i'm on. I'm with these to say. I don't think that word is complicated as many people think it is. But i wouldn't say. I think the relationship between hate muddled on those listening to what region. I'm going to stand firm on them. A lot of people know what that means but that relationship between head coach and general manager stood the test of time. I'm not saying shanahan and lynch and great but carriage snyder gone through lots. Give and pete pete running the organization real question right. he's running. Yeah straight talk wireless no contract compromise. We're presented by progressive insurance all of our guests and the goodyear hotline this morning we're asking. Jj watt signing with the cardinals is fill in the blank. That's the toughest your most. Yeah give us your most awful creative answer. Let us know is it. Something with the andre hopkins.

"jj watt" Discussed on Mornings with Keyshawn, Jorge & LZ
"Shots not as fog anymore. That's pretty yeah right. There looks right there. Yeah that's new york. His speaking of pretty. If you're cardinals. Fan the most discussed now back on the marco had the last name what. What but this morning might be watt. What as in what. J. j. watt to the cardinals. Thirty one million dollars over two years twenty-three mill guaranteed and that is the biggest story in the nfl this morning before we jump into it fellas. How's everything going keyshawn. Jalen zubin presented by progressive insurance. It's good. I went to bed too early last night though. What's too early to probably was in a beer. Probably around eight thirty when you normally go to bed. I'm probably going to be around eleven. Ten eleven ten eleven. You get about five hours a night. Man i've been not so. That's what i do but i sleep all day too so i went to bed too early. I was up at one. Am so i've been up since one am. Zubin met a fan of yours yesterday. Who went to rutgers hospital in order to get my leg check out. My graph graph my left leg and my doctor literally was like man keyshawn. He's never wrong. He's never wrong. I feel like zubin always ties it all together. He's he's a great. And i was like look at that rutgers sticking up for rutgers i love that jersey pride. We'll take plenty of pride here for the cardinals because key. This was one of those where i think a lot of people are expecting like you said buffalo cleveland teams that appear to be near the super bowl a guy that could maybe get them over the top but you think the signing of arizona and by the way i gotta give. Jj watt credit because anyone controlling the process. He announced his release. He announced his signing. But you think the signing with this particular team actually means the market for jj which everybody thought was white hart or red hot. I got in the desert with the red sea. Maybe the market wasn't as flush with teams as we may have. Well you gotta think about these things though right when you hear the report first off. Everybody wants to sign. Jj what oh. My god yes at. What price though right buffalo was all any but brandon beane. General manager of the buffalo bills was not going to spend thirty one million dollars with twenty three of a guarantee which essentially for the arizona. Cardinals is a one year deal at twenty three million dollars but they were not going to do that. So when you start to look at it you say well what was green bay the green bay where they really interested or do we try and tie it together. Because he's from the region or because shack barrett in the tampa bay buccaneers or going to be negotiating a long term deal and he may prices self. Ottawa tampa is willing to spend based on their finances in their cap issues in all the other guys that they want to sign so let's pill salim in tampa and so when you start to look at it's like okay with arizona. Why would you go to arizona because if it was about winning that championship arizona's not quite there yet. They've got a lot of proving to do. I was on the espn affiliate out in arizona. Yesterday we gamble and his crew and we were talking about the signing of jj watt and where arizona was at and how far they're away and when you think about yes defensively. The heat certainly gives them what they can use as a pass rusher. They went out and got to real suggs. Who was a little bit older. Obviously and at the end of his career he didn't get much out of that. But you got challenged jones on the other side and this could potentially form a tandem as two of the better pass. Rushers that we've seen in the national football league as a ten you'd think about guys like von miller and demarcus ware or you think about the white free in mathis when they were indianapolis so i could go on and on and on with a list of guys in that in that. Play the defensive side of the ball in pasha specialists but in the end to your question. How many real suitors were out there for. Jj watt that s me. Pick my key. He got twenty three million guaranteed. Yeah it's about. It's definitely about the money and here's what. I laughed at this when i saw the other day. Because word had a tweet that came out. And i read the tweet t aqui because this goes into your cute collar. Murray conversation that we've been having all year long right there. Let's you know that. Jj watt in my opinion. Sanford and money. Which i'm not mad about. Get your money money money but you know i thought he was chasing the ring. Well you know. Sometimes that narrative can be spun to to try to make it look like yeah well. It's about the bigger picture when we know it's really not right so edwards says i was told. Jj watt first criteria in choosing his team would be the quality of the quarterback so this seems to be an endorsement of k. One column kinda murray's great assistant jay. Great i i know i understand but i thought if you're trying to win the super bowl if this is an endorsement of the quarterback. Tom brady aaron rodgers. Josh allen but it lets you know that the market wasn't like that it proves your point that this was about the money and i'm glad it worked out and he wants to change us into a -dorsements calorie uri awesome. But that's still in a pretty hard division and there's still a long way for this team to go look. They want eight games last year and they were game away from potentially getting to the playoffs at the end of the season. What i would say is when you mentioned those other quarterbacks you gotta look at the defense side of the ball. Buffalo is willing to give him. I have no idea. I don't know if eating talk to tampa or talk to green bay. I have no idea at all. But i could probably bet that those numbers were not even close and what arizona was willing to do. This is a make or break year for cliff. Kingsbury in desert. Let's be honest with ourselves. Right steve wilks got fired. After two wins cliff kingsbury one. Five one eight. He needs to take another giant step. He can't go backwards and b. six and ten. He can't be a seven and nine he can't be eight. He's gotta take a giant step. Which means that. They're pushing all their chips to the middle of the middle of the deck in this is also a pivotal year for kyle. Murray murray gotta show that he's willing to take the next step in the national football league. It's so what you make a pro bowl. Everybody makes pro bowls this day and age. You win eight games you within a system that you've been running since high school. We all understand. And now it's consistently beating the san francisco. Forty nine is the los angeles rams in the seattle seahawks to take over that division in if they could take that next step by adding jj watt to it then they win and if not. It's a one year deal at twenty three million because a new coaching staff. That comes in their next year will certainly part ways with. Jj watt and wanna bring in in it all over the way that they want to plus. It's the year where there's a cardinals will have to make a decision. After the season on picking up the fifth year option of kyla. Mary so you got all those sorts of little. Subplots says going on in the desert. We're asking this morning. Jj watt signing with the cardinals is fill in the blank time during the week. But it's as simple as that. Jj signing with the cardinals is fill in the blank. Gives us the word. Tell us why eighty eight say. Espn eight eight.
Zion Williamson, Lonzo Ball, Pelicans Hold off Donovan Mitchell, Jazz for Win
"We are back on. Get up and jay. Williams made his way to take a look at the game of the night last night. A good one between the jazz. And the pelicans and this one was all about ziad. Look at him. Going right equity go back just constantly challenging rudy gobert. He gets his shot blocked more than any other player in the league. But it doesn't matter because it's going to finish at the rim. He had fifteen points in the third quarter. Zion did look at them continuing here and just taking a straw once again. He loves eternal right shoulder. That's his patented move. Twenty-six ten last night for zion who was really emerging clear in his second season. Well let's take you to where this game is decided thirty seconds ago jazz are down by one. And here's the big sequence. J. will often miss from donovan mitchell. Donovan mitchell mrs baruch. I don't know if i call that over to bat call rudy gobert. That just much taller. But since i did it take another look at it here. That's go bear. He does get called for over the bag. Zion would make too so the pelicans of a three point lead in. Here's the final shot. Not a great look that the utah jazz get off. Zion gets the rebound josh. Hart gets uncontested dunk. And that is all she wrote. The pelicans get the win. One twenty nine one twenty four and again as i on finishing with twenty six points. Ten boards five assists. Joining anthony davis as the only players in new orleans history with game with those numbers before turning twenty one years old. They will play again tomorrow night

It remains to be seen Pro football talk Sharee Williams says JJ might be willing to take a little bit less money from a contender to go elsewhere. Maybe he gives some team discount that he really wants to go to if he wants to win a Super Bowl there plenty of teams out there that are interesting. JJ Watt and JK will what will have his choice of several of those teams because we've heard the Titans around on Lee ones who publicly Admitted that they have interest in JJ Watt.

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. He was an MVP candidate playing under Frank Reich. He's reuniting with that guy that's going to be awesome to got a great relationship and EM the Colts have a great offensive line. They've got to get running game. They've got a great defense Carson Wentz is being put into a great situation. If he does not do well then there's no excuse. You can make he's got great great team around him good support good people. He's getting helped.
"jj watt" Discussed on Real_Sports: A Snapchat Sports Pod
"I heard he could maybe even gotten a third or fourth so in that sense like maybe but i do think it saves a lot of face. And if you're trying to rebuild your culture which is anything that can save face for the tech but that's the thing it's gotta start somewhere like you don't want to just keep piling on and what's the third or fourth round. Pick to where you'll never sign a legitimate free agent again if you just took a man who gave so much your franchise. Not only to the franchise. This man did more for that city than any athlete has ever done for city. I know you're gonna say lebron james in akron ohio but he i mean he reached forty million dollars in the middle of her. It was supposed to be like a five hundred k. Thing and he just didn't stop so it's bigger than just the football team. And i think it's the right move led him pick where he wants to go play with that being said. I don't know how true all the rumors are if it sounds like. He's open to eight different teams than i would have probably traded him and figure out where he wants to go but like i kind of assumed by asking is release. He just wanted to roll up to pittsburgh with his brother. Which i think would be cool and the final note on. Jj watt is. I know it's weird comparison. But like nick the tomb looked like you should never plan an nba game again. And then like kinda revitalized cross right paris. But but judy what you know. I don't know how dominant he was. I didn't watch Do you mentioned the four wins. No plier of of the outside defensive end can impact a team like that which is why he shouldn't be making that money at this point but can he be can revive his career. Like campbell came for the ravens and he was a beast right and people said he's trendy in the wrong direction so i think for that reason i wouldn't be shocked if watt became not to an mvp level but a very serviceable player. Here's a here's a little inside tip for The folks at home from a kid that works in a guy my kid guy guy. I'm not a man. I'm a guy. A man from a guy. Man kid that works in sports went through a quarter life crisis right there. I'm a guy man-kit from a from someone that works in sports gambling when these players are switching teams. And you wanna follow the odds. Don't just don't because those odds are totally around. The most recent article written by this beat writer has to make his quota for a month so he just writes up five hundred words of spew. That's what the odds of. Jj water focuses. I'm seeing like browns twitter yesterday going nuts because since steelers have since fallen back in the browns have shot up the charts and the browns may end up getting him. Don't get me wrong but that has nothing to do that. One boring beat reporter sitting on his ass on the couch reading an article coop. The browns could be interested in. Jj watt so. Just be careful kids. Yeah i mean it. Definitely got me to buy season tickets for the knicks or i saw katie minus one fifty later on some offshore of i. It's funny. I thought you were going to go a different route and say like even though we might disagree what he's going to be known his next team. It will not affect the season win. Total like it will be wouldn't even affect a line in a game if he was inner out would not. It would not move at a half point at this point. He likes someone. I don't know it might get bad power rating would alter on that. But i think whoever signs if it's jj watt goes to cincinnati. Cincinnati cleveland. A pittsburgh an indianapolis their win totals go up by half a game just because at the cloud thing. Not because of a football thing. It's like i said sportsbook would love for the window to go up because right like when the patriots signed cam newton sportsbooks. Yeah but that's different sports all my money. It's an impactful position. I told you. Kim newman wasn't good but it it he could have if he were good impacted. All right. let's take a quick break after the break. We're gonna talk about a real football league that the interest levels ten. We're going to talk about champions league top shots we're gonna rank some stuff. We have ranked in a little and maybe a little. what the what the hell internet graphic. We'll be right back..
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

J.J. Watt is leaving the Houston Texans
"Talk about it real quick here about the current state of the nfl. All right to shawn watson is going to be somebody that's talked about if this is the way the. Nfl becomes with high super caliber superstar quarterbacks wanting out of their russell wilson is somebody you would never think whatever asked to be traded or moved or anything other than go hawks matthew stafford we thought he was potential gonna die on a football field while wearing alliance jersey because he would never ever come out and say hey. This is not for me anymore. Okay i would like to potentially go on and have success somewhere because when legacies are talked about hall of fames or talked about. I just heard what happened. philip rivers. I would like that not to happen to me. But this is not the type of guy i am at all now got. Jj watt not that type guy at all by all accounts. He's going in saying. Get me out of here. That's when it gets interesting because now it's not you know because back in the day they would move somebody is they're labeled a distraction. Let's get out of here. Let's go do whatever now. It's like all of the biggest name players that you would never expect a walter payton man of the year potentially the greatest philanthropic person in the nfl is potentially saying you know what i mean a new landscape. I'm intrigued to see how this continues. How each of these situations gets talked about judge in how many of them actually happened. Because the seahawks without russ stink. The texans were out the shawn watson. Probably gonna stink now without. Jj watt not to jj watt winning. Them games good player. I mean he's a great player. He's gonna play well somewhere else. Wide jason ring. It's like all these teams are are potentially at the mercy of their big name
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
Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is ready for Thanksgiving game against Detroit Lions
"Days showdown with Lions in Detroit. JJ Watt says he's ready for his second career Thanksgiving game. You know, the whole country is watching. It's been a part of a tradition, obviously in my family and most families on Thanksgiving Day to watch the football games and growing up in Wisconsin, obviously having seen the Packers play against the lines, a bunch of times And what started the Texans Thanksgiving. One of the lines back in 2012 kickoff tomorrow from Ford Field is at 11:30 A.m. on Wall Street. It's been a
"jj watt" Discussed on Jalen and Jacoby
"Of the top teams but let's talk about some struggling teams. The houston texans seems like just just last season. They were winning playoff games against the bills. And going up against the chiefs and leading and now they only have one win. And jj watt. They're both leaders. Said he's not looking to rebuild. He's looking to go after a championship. Jalen what do you think about. jj's sentiments about his. It was all good just a week ago. And this is one of those things about being the player. You can say now that i'm looking for championships. But as an organization when we look at your productivity the first few years and then the latter few years based on the amount of money that we pay you in comparison other great defensive lineman like both in san francisco whose defense helped lead them to the super bowl basically last year or aaron. Donald who gives double team virtually on every play. Jj watt productivity earlier in his career versus what he's getting now is just tailed off and he's supposed to be the version of watson for the defense but that productivity has not been what it was to start his career. You take a look at the numbers. Jalen jj watt. Just isn't the same productive player that used to be. When you look at these numbers. What does that tell you tells me that. God is dealt with injury. And it's not elite at the position currently and that's what that squat was gonna need and bought away bill. O'brien man. He missed this roster up. Shouldn't they have clowney on the team to go with him. Like they had young players. They had the honey badger theron out the on not let him go. He went to casey won. A super wall became one of the leaders of their defense. So the decision. Making a law with watts productivity. Not being what it used to be one of the reasons why the houston texas. We'll be giving up their high picks this year to another squad like the miami dolphins. Well there is some good.
Bill O'Brien: Head coach fired by Houston Texans
"Coach Bill O'Brien has gone from the Houston Texans and nobody can say they're surprised last January. 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.
"jj watt" Discussed on The Sean Salisbury Show
"Do he doesn't let emotion get into here. You can't sit here and say that it doesn't factor in any of let a guy, run a team based on emotion and he literally traded away a player. If they turned down a third if they were to turn down a third round pick for JJ Watt. Tell me sex. That's based strictly on lifetime achievement award not that he's not a good player, right? They would not trade him because you just can't handle the PR hit. Here's my question to anybody who says cannot trade him. He's JJ Wadis to important. Okay. So next year we all know if he's here next year this off season. What McNair Jack Easter beer going to do, they're going to go to him and say, okay, seventeen and a half million dollars. We can't afford that and we don't think you're quite worth that anymore. So. That can't both can't be true. You can't go to a guy and say you're so important we can't. We're not GONNA trade your we're going to you know we need you around then turn around and say you're not worth what you're getting paid. We need you to take a pay I guess is that every year that goes into the draft pick because last? Are you? visit cut in in retirement. That's your next go to him and offer him an extension to where you basically spread out that seventy and a half all. But but here's what you can't do remember we can't fit stuff like that. Yeah. Here according to cal we couldn't pay hopkins I know it's bigger but couldn't you done the same thing with him to pay put a band aid on it as he calls it. Just, it so that that's what I'm saying the the what's made the things that people in this city want championships every city does the things in New England that they've always had as championships things that we don't want is all the New England other guys other the Belgian cubby gear right the irony of it yet you want what you you. WanNa coach with that lack of emotion you want him to be tied in with players, but you also want to coach gentleman should know when it's time the question is, when is it time? Can you still get an asset for JJ? Yeah. I think so yes, and would it be on a good team that's on the cusp of winning super. Bowl. Let's say the Kansas City chiefs offered a third round pick because they want one more stood up from. Take it you have to with them I. Chief. Side trade a third ride. Jj One front with that team, I'd play Super Hard Ball and ask for the second because they're fixing be the end of the round you can try. But if someone offers you a third in my opinion, you take your run. If they offer you fourth, you have to seriously consider it if they won't budge nobody'll budget to a third. In my opinion, you take a four you don't take a fifth. Offered a second. The team that if you took the if you didn't, if you take it and laugh yes. If you're the Texans you. Take it and run fourth if you cannot budge anybody to a third in my opinion, you say, yes because you know what fixes fans and the disconnect and the team is winning you need assets on this team right now jj watt in my opinion is not going to be a big reason. You're winning super bowl in four years well. Even. When he was defence player of the year, he didn't win a super bowl, right so that's why impact guys are got the ball in his hand. You should be trying to sell off a ton of pieces for draft assets, one thing and I'm with Ya eggs or I would have to think twice. Is the PR hit bigger than the production of a fourth of fourth-rounder don't care about winning in my opinion To think twice. Is the PR hit bigger than the than the production of four of fourth-rounder you don't care about winning in my opinion. I mean. Draft S de let me ask you that you think. Maybe, they don't. The Guy upstairs that signs paychecks Right now is more important. The PR HIT WITH JJ water fourth round pick to him just depends on the price and if. You mentioned the that knows and I worked he will not take that pr hit for fourth round hit and I don't think I don't think it sitter I don't think they'd even. Take the fourth round pick they say call me back. If you want to give me a third, they would even take the phone call. If that's true, it's a guarantee. Organization has never winning this this organization. This year will never trade him for a fourth round pick. Hit. So bad would be crate third round pick you have to do and come back and just give you one thing like late at least they're not going to be picking up a pick and turning it down for a spot. Were there ever any good drafting because the third and a fourth round? They're usually terrible drafting but remember when you know you need. Those damned draft. This will be the most important with Watson here. This GM and quarterback higher will be the most important hires. This franchise ever had because of WHO's at quarterback and what matters if. They've never had this guy if you can land third fourth fifth S- for cooks or fuller. One of the two hour talking to different thing right what an all these guys can get something for these guys do do you called me up and offer me and fourth round pick for Kenny stills tomorrow the deals all of you it's nobody's. Not, GONNA stop..
"jj watt" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Know it hurts me I can't be helped my team. Lauren jogging is listed as doubtful for game for Mike Lee not going to be back he spoke as well about. Call it. It's to get to the finals and then not be healthy enough to play and contribute if Obama's back he's averaging seventeen point eight points per game ten. Point nine rebounds per game and four point six assists per game throughout the playoffs. He's obviously a huge factor for the heat I. do think that the Lakers are going to approach this game a bit more often than they were. Power. I. Think they're going right at the basket they're going to try to get Jimmy Butler and van plays in foul trouble they're gonNA go. They're going to be hyper aggressive and GonNa, feed the ball over and over and over. I think that's what the heat should do as well because. Getting in foul trouble is key. That's you're not gonNA get Lebron foul trouble obviously but getting in foul trouble and moving the ball around I really felt like their offense gets a little stagnant once they get into trouble like keep moving the ball around to your shooters interesting to see how this will go tonight finally, Daniel Jones gone off to a rocky start this year but joe judges. Shutting down any kind of talk we making a change at quarterback. He's if you're asking if Daniels our quarterback is our quarterback who were playing with we support him. We have a lot of confidence in him. We have faith in Him we can't sit around here and handcuff our quarterback by looking looking over his shoulder all the time and second guessing everything he does. The I feel like the the bottom of the NFL quickly separated from the top of the NFL. This season own four teams, obviously the giants, jets, Texans, and Falcons. Teams that had new stuff being introduced quarterback, her coach Atlanta's an exception. Well, the one win teams. Yes. The jets no Texans. No. But the one win seems obviously the the bengals. And the chargers now, they didn't expect it to be the hunters were. Good one win team there they they don't feel like the chargers don't feel like a one winnow Kansas City in Tampa gave bill does are winnable games in the second half fourth quarter. Now the broncos, Eagles, Washington cowboys, lions, even the Vikings are a little I think the vikings are. If, you look at the Vikings offensive personnel it's really good best running back Nice Tan and now that Justin Jefferson Star like vikings have all sorts of players. It's just that they used to be mostly on defense. It feels like last two years their offense usually the bottom of the nfl we just kind of forget about and right push off very quickly I'm just I think maybe it's just because Trevor Lawrence Justin fields. So interested to see who continues to just. Bulldoze their way. To the number one overall peg because of it's the giants or the jets. It's GonNa be fascinating to see what they do because then you'll Jones three in nine record as a starter last year obviously owned four this year. I mean if they end up with the number one overall pick do you stick with Daniel Jones I again, if I I, think it depends on the market but I just don't know how if you're like if it's the giants and the jets at the top, we'll top lose leading every division Josh Allen Patrick Mahomes I mean seriously. Ben. Rothlisberger like if you look at every division lead Patrick Mahal. Okay. So let's go Russell Wilson is a is a pretty obvious. Ballot check got fired without you. If you have Trevor Lawrence, and you don't have a flaw and he had never really a flaw, it Andrew Luck, you're nitpicking define Andrew luck they were like his arm is OK, you are Andrew. lucked you everything is arm was a problem like Trevor Lawrence is the same thing. You really got a nit pick define any problem, but you do then have to be immediately committed to building the rest of your team around him dolphins a line because that's what that's the situation with the bengals borough I just man if it's a New York team at the top of the draft what's going to be? Washington's got fight. It's GonNa. Be Negative to draft. Amazing this year Oh, my God quarterbacks and new. York teams top speed popcorn time will be a joy with the news. Well that's the news and thanks for stopping by. By the way, some thoughts on the Texans fired Bill O'Brien. So they have no draft picks coming up they have no cap space, what they have to do, and this is really uncomfortable for them is to trade jj watt because there's like four really good teams in the NFL Seattle Baltimore don't have a pass rush. And, he's about fifteen million dollars this year seventeen and a half million dollars next year he's wildly popular in Houston any will be forever but if you don't have draft picks and you don't have cap space going forward, you can get both moving one player. The two can't move for Houston. I'm not moving to Shawn Watson and Laremy Tunsil left tackle those aren't going anywhere those are. Those are premier top six in the league at their position outside of that I'd move. Jj Watt die. That's what I would do any popular and he's great but Seattle would oh my God he's perfect for Seattle. He's perfect for Baltimore actually the niners could use him. The Ravens could use them. There's a Lotta good teams in this league Pittsburgh's rare good team with a great pass rush. That's the colts. Now have a more pass rush most teams in this league in a salary cap era, get to the trading deadline and there's one thing they know they need. They just can't afford it. If you can afford a fifteen million dollar defensive LINEMAN JJ watt going to be available and you can get one or two draft picks and cap space cleared because you can't have all three you can have no picks. Paying your quarterback a fortune don't have a coach yet. No. You gotTA. Have something. You can solve a couple of your issues very quickly if you're Houston. Keep Laremy Tunsil you keep Shawn. Watson you moved. Jj. Watt, you can't tell me there's a market for jj what he feels like a Patriot he look could pick some a patriot uniform now he honestly he feels like he would be a great fit for the Ravens or the seahawks. seahawks would be top heavy, but that's Decay, Metcalfe's cost you nothing and he's a great players you can go with that.

Mayfield "absolutely" will kneel during national anthem
"Ends up so the PGA tour is back the NBA we believe is heading back Major League Baseball will be shut down the players throats to get back right and then we have the NFL again having the longest runway to get this thing going but while we're waiting for training camp to start at the end of next month and waiting so for some players to sign contracts we're seeing how so many players specifically so many white players are are joining their brothers in arms in terms of their teammates and fighting for the causes that they believe in and two stars over the weekend had some very interesting responses some of their followers on Twitter both J. 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. J. said if you still think it's about disrespecting the flag or military you clearly haven't been listening that's it

Toss them play catch with fans I mean just trying to create a memory you know. I was a kid once grew up in Wisconsin and couldn't even imagine catching a pass from guy like farve. Farber Reggie White, so just trying to go around and make some memories before the game and hopefully creates fence I do well. They left a nice memory with me. I thought that was so cool. Man So cool how you been holding up during quarantine. Problem, doing well I'm fortunate to be in a situation where avid gym to train at yield on on It's been good.

You got to gets thrown in about ten years deep where you're just stuck with each other now and. We figured out quickly. WHO's in charge and dishes? WHO's in charge of laundry, right?

It sounds like so much fun Tell me about it. Yeah, it's a blast. You know what I mean. It's basically a concept that everybody knows. Everybody Played Tag on whether it was the backyard. The school yards park and what we've done is we just took it to the ultimate level? I mean we basically lent our kid brain. Take over, and we created these crazy obstacle courses with these elite professional taggers and. We have people come on and compete and try and beat them. There's professional tekkers. Yeah, he doesn't that sound like the best job description of all time. How can one become a professional tag? Clearly, we chose the wrong profession. We're all we're all doing it wrong. They are some of the best athletes I've ever seen. Parker experts. We have some cross fit legends. We have everything in between, and they make some of these obstacle courses look like nod, and it's incredible. Not for nothing, but I think I would be a hell of a tagger I must say I'm serious.

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

Was you actually wearing jersey? Yeah. No. It was real. I mean that whole story was real see that's the thing.

During that time. I was like as I was reading like this is so pointless because I'm this is one hundred percent true. And it's like a legit story.

Then we'll be joined by Panthers linebacker. Thomas Davis who has dealt with adversity all season long from the death of his father, Tim returning from his four game suspension and ESPN NFL researcher, Evan Kaplan will join us to give us the latest insight in preview on week seven, but first JJ watt JJ. Thanks very much for doing this. I appreciate it. No problem. Thanks for having me. I'm watching the game on Sunday and I'm watching what you did, and I'm watching your postgame comments and your furred to the critics who the people who say you lost it, who, who said you had lost JJ. You know, we are, you know, we always y'all negative comments this your and whatnot. But I mean, I don't blame anybody that that said that. I mean, I don't. I don't blame anybody at all this last two seasons. So they have they have a right to believe that it was. It was possibly over that I could never come back and be the same. So I don't believe any. I don't blame anybody that had those thoughts, but it doesn't mean they can't use it as a little bit of motivation. Did you hear that though? I mean, did you hear people say you would never come back? You would never be the same. Oh, yeah, plenty. Plenty of people. I mean, all over whether it was just social media or whether it was media or whatever it was, but and that's, I mean, I, like I said, I don't blame him because I mean, right after my surgery, I had those doubts myself. I mean, I had, you know, after you break your leg back through the year before you're like, you know this late one was was worse than the back and my I mean, my leg and my girlfriend didn't didn't even tell me this until recently. She said that the doctors after surgery weren't even sure if I was going to be able to play again or not. So I mean, but nobody nobody ever told me that. I'm glad, but you know, this is you always have those questions in those doubts. I mean, you're human, you know you, you wonder if it'll be possible, but then one day just make a decision. So right. We're gonna take one day at a time. We're gonna work as hard as we can see. See we can make a bit when we're those doubts most real for you your own mind. Right after surgery. I mean, right after my surgery when you're in the hospital bed, when you can't walk for two months, you know you're laying on the couch, you can't do anything. You can't. You can't really do any rehab. You can't really do anything to work towards your goal. And I think that's the that's the time that you're doubting the most when you're literally just resting laying on the couch with your thoughts. Because all you have to do is sit there and thinking you try and watch TV and take your mind off it. But here mind inevitably goes to what what now? And I'm very lucky. I have a great girlfriend k. a. who who just went through ACL surgery herself before my leg. And she picked me up help keep me motivated. She help keep me positive through it. All. I have great parents. I have brothers who both been through injuries would always keep me help me pick pick me up in my teammates and coaches. So I'm just lucky to have a lot of great people around to all those people who doubted you JJ you now. Or Todd, the league lead and Saxon. Seven. Yeah. No, it's pretty crazy. You know, I mean, I love being out there with the guys. I just love being back on the field doing what I love. It's it's so much fun. I mean, just just playing football. You know you take it for granted..
