Analysis: New England Patriots vs. Philadelphia Eagles
"New England Beats Philadelphia. Seven hundred ten tight game. Your boy Ataman throws a touchdown pass What do we make of these teams right now? Well I mean I think the entire takeaway for Philly fans is predicated on what you think of New England if you think think. New England is the Super Bowl. Contending team which I think there are a super bowl. Contending Tamed Sound Down on now. Though it sounds like your your little awesome while you worry about the offense and she do I mean like how could you not and you worry about stopping the red eye. Eagles went away from a little bit. They were down Jordan. Howard I think if you look at it that outweigh it's not the worst? Lost Eagles had all season. But of course it's the biggest loss because it's the latest and now they're five hundred nece was like they put themselves in a position where losses to Atlanta and in Detroit and teams like that amounted up and made this a must win and of course in the NFC. Nothing's truly a must win but we mentioned the eagles struggles with Dallas earlier. Everybody has to over simplify things and make it a win thing and I just got actually got a tweet from A guy earlier one of the listeners owners definitely from Boston like Oh crooked. Cancel the pod Ryan at Ryan at Chris. Because he doesn't want to you know. Take the eagles offense to task. The offense was bad. Dude Carson didn't play take that twelve but like Carson Carson didn't play Great Lake but guess what you've been touting this patriots it's defense all year is the best of all time or in that in that and we have come down to earth bit but you gotTa pick one because Carson not having a perfect game against these guys with down the starting running back down to Sean Jackson down. Alshon Jeffery down both tackles at one point in the game by by the way when Lane Johnson leaves early early. That's a big deal. Carson was pressure twenty. Two out of forty eight snaps again. He holds the ball long too long sometimes so that stat his snapped releases relevant the longer longer you hold it the more. You're going to get pressured. But he had four incompletion role in that final drive. I didn't think he had agreed. Asli bag game but it was funny to me that in a game where the goat who still a really good player was all over the place. The first avenue set a record for incompletions and a half. It's the first game. He played an entire game. You didn't leave bleed. The Patriots and touchdown passes shutout Jules. I just think like are we going to be mad at Brady to a I. I know whence isn't the goat and he doesn't get that kind of slack but that's a team who offensively has to hurry up and figure some things out for the for the level of expectation in New England to be met and of course Romo Romo who I love every time Brady missed the throw is the wind. Every time went Smith stores like he missed another one there. And if this is the game you're GONNA TO GIVE UP ON WHENCE OVER I. You're giving up on Wednesday like as a franchise quarterback score on trees. I think you're you're you're shortsighted. Second this is not the game like he didn't didn't play that well but bro. That's the best defense in the league. Most people think right. That's what people think at this point Yeah they are San Francisco. You know San Francisco the team gave up fifty points to I mean Devi. Oh man done sound like rail exact science so I'm looking at it now. 'cause Devia was telling me these guys were both both the two thousand Ravens. Yeah now they are and I mean going into the week they still were way ahead of everybody else. I mean I was looking at the numbers this morning. They don't get updated Until until the Monday night or so we'll know more about inter you're right. I mean that San Francisco who in what last couple of weeks we're going. Oh wait a minute what what happened to these guys on Defense Pencil Not GonNa sit there and say then all of a sudden I still. I've always liked personnel better than New England's but New England's one holding a team down to ten after they gave up a bunch of yards to Lamar and those guys so I think the Brady thing it continues to be this thing. That's real his first half second half stuff it just felt like yesterday was just a grind. You know what I mean to grind for everybody. You know what I mean but you know how like if you have a buddy and you seem like walking somewhere and you're like what's wrong like just having a bad day. Yeah just arduous and soon as they got out of the house everything was a challenge and it just felt like the Brady and his movements. And maybe I'm doing too much here and maybe but I don't think I am. I think I'm right here. I really the the more I watch him this year. The more I think things just feel more challenging and I don't know if it's just because the offensive line I don't know it's because no gronk you know it could be all of these things collectively but I think even the biggest patriots fan has to admit and some private moment that you know. Maybe this is what it looks like for the end of Tom and then as soon as I say that out loud goes probably was so who knows. I'm not willing to do that because I'm not going to be the guy what I'm saying is though that poses the question to you. I mean you're forty two forty three years old. You'RE GONNA have I bad days where the ball is not just zip off your arm You know outside the Hashes Brady Brady is still going to have them in a position to compete for the whole thing at the end of the year even with the lack of Gronk with the lack of Devlin with the line problems with some of the drops he had yesterday. But I would ask you this. The Eagles secondary has been much maligned. The Patriots Defense has been called one of the best ever right. So why are we sitting here talking about and Tom didn't have a great game. You know who had about the same game as Tom Carson. They both they both had bad throws. But we're sitting here and I know that the go gets a lot more leash 'cause he's the goat and he's going to have his team where they need to be and I'm a huge fan. So don't don't mistake. This is a Tom Critique but people have not gray days Tom will tell you that Carson had not great day against one of the best defense of all time and if you look at these two these two offenses they both fallen awful lot. Since that's your boy. I think the Eagles Miss Frank Reich. I think they may they miss de Filippo. I think they had a lot of injuries but the pats have a lot of injuries and they've fallen on off a lot since that super bowl. Our defense in seventeen was much better than the not much better. It's better than the eagles defense right now. We have more pieces. They put up six hundred plus yards yards. Offensively on US yesterday was like you said a struggle and so I think there's concerns for both offenses here. One obviously has a much better cushion and a defense defense. That's GONNA keep me in every game.

"jordan howard" Discussed on The Fantasy Footballers - Fantasy Football Podcast
"I don't I do not eat I. I don't I mean Jordan Howard. This Jordan Howard is still good at what he does. He's not a very versatile back but sometimes you only need a light switch to do one thing right and so if he's good at being a running back he can get up the middle and still yards he's going to be used. Do we have a status update on what's going on with Darren sproles. I believe he is aging out of the League or right but I mean he you you know he is still a free agent to sign him. That's what has there been any buzz. Because last I heard he was going to retire and then he said we'll know maybe I'm GONNA come back. After that happened they went out and got Jordan Howard and miles sanders and I really doubt Darren sproles Tsk tags on Saturday would take him back though I there's a lot of Talk Mile Sanders to get on the field. You're going to have to pass protect as a rookie. You're going to have to be able to to play three down type role. You got to be able to pass protected. Catch the ball because he's his skill set is one that at Penn state and I believe it will translate to the N._F._l.. Is a great pass catching option but you gotta pass protect to do it. You GotTa Keep Carson Wentz Your Franchise Investment Upright until he proves he could do that. He's not going to earn the lion share of carries and work I in I had to to dynasty leagues in one. I drafted David Montgomery in the other. I drafted mile sand. You're the third spot in both declared spot in both leagues <hes> because I see just different things that are both the players mile. Sanders has the ability to potentially take you know third down. That's not something I think that Tarik Cohen needs to give up. He's great. Three Cohen is amazing at that so mile sanders..
NFL Power Rankings: Projected wins and playoff chances for top 6 picks
"So ESPN dot com today. They put out the twenty nineteen NFL power rankings. They project the wind totals and the playoff chances for each team in the NFL. They used ESPN's football power index. It's the FBI you see it all the time on sportscenter during the NFL and college football season F B I. So they go through and they project the amount of wins. And then they say the purchase the chances of percentage that you make the playoffs. Who do you think is the number one team in the national? Football league for projected wins and their chances to make the playoffs for this season. Well, Chris I'm not gonna lie the audience. I'm looking right at it. And it is the Kansas City Chiefs, you could just play along. They don't know looking at I don't act like you're smart truthful with our listeners Kansas City Chiefs, number one. I don't do bits FBI projects their win total the ten point three which I believe is under their win. Total in Vegas. I believe their windows at ten and a half. So they win ten point three games. That means you go under. Yeah. I mean, it's pretty close. So it's dead. It's dead on. It's kind of a you just say they win ten games. I would think but yeah, I think that they and the chiefs chances to make the playoffs at eighty percent per ESPN dot com. FBI who's number two number two the New Orleans Saints and the saints are projected to win ten point ten games. Seventy six point nine percent chance to make the playoffs. According to. FBI number three on the list. The Los Angeles Rams at ten point one wins tied with the saints. And they are for chances to make the playoffs. Seventy six point four for the Los Angeles Rams number four seed, they're not just going by the projected win total because number four they have the New England Patriots. And they have actually the highest projected win total at ten and a half they do. But who's number four in their power rankings? The New England Patriots. Go five. That's what I'm saying. They're not making them by. Wins giving them the powerful power. I index they're saying these are how are rankings are because the doing the patriots. They have rate fourth. But by the football power index. They have the highest amount of wins in Vegas, though. The the patriots are set at eleven wins because everybody's betting that over who's number five. That would be the Indianapolis Colts the young upstart Indianapolis Colts whose whose quarterback who's this young new quarterback. I had everything was like hold up. We we haven't gotten to the Chicago Bears. We're talking colts. Okay. So F FBI is saying nine point two wins for the colts. Yeah. Fifty seven point nine percent chance to make the playoffs. Indeed. And coming in at number six. This is your bears fans not the Chicago Bears. But they have less projected wins than the Chicago Bears. They have a lower chance to make the playoffs. Then the Chicago Bears, and those would be the hoity toity, Los Angeles chargers and with their west coast, avocado toast, what I don't know. Point eight wins. Forty nine point seven percent chance to make the playoffs. So they have in the power rankings. Chargers ahead of the Chicago Bears because the bears are seventh. Yes. Projected by FBI the projected win total and be nine point one which would be under the nine and a half and the chance to make the playoffs at fifty five point six percent. Yes. And they have listed where the team improved. It says obviously Jeff Dickerson wrote this bears reporter for ESPN dot com. He wrote running back, obviously, they improved at running back by signing. Mike Davis grafting, David Montgomery, more touches for Trico and get him more involved in the offense getting rid of Jordan Howard trading him to the eagles. He says that the most of the TV improved the most at the running back position. They basically revamped that entire running back room by getting rid of a lot of guys. I think take one as L. My also be a camp casualty? We'll see how their other running
NFL Draft: Eagles pick Andre Dillard, Miles Sanders, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside
"The NFL draft was completed on Saturday the three day extravaganza Thursday Friday into Saturday. I really liked days one and two as much day three. But I think they have some guys who can help them in certainly. I thought the Dillard drafting was a smart play for guy who was still there with that kind of value. I really liked the Sanders, vile Sanders, drafting and JJ Artega Whiteside. Why watched a lot at Stanford is a guy who will contribute to this team. And it may not be a huge role this year, but he will contribute to the steam. That's for sure let's go to Mike in Westchester wants a little NFL draft. What's going on my man? Mike been buddy. Hi, brother. How are you doing? Well, I say rob Sixers could blow out and thank goodness. We're going to new coach. Yeah. They're not going to be a lot of people ask me before the series. What do you think if they if they get eliminated is Brett Brown gone? And my answer was always we'll tell me how they're getting a limited. Right. If this if this goes seven games, and they lose an overtime Toronto. That's different. If they end up if this is four or five games, and for the most part these games look similar to last night. Then I think Brett could be in big trouble. Yeah. I think it's time how this tiling coaches incoming here that really I think they need it needs to kick in the. But that's just my opinion. I think it's the plight of the news. Well, Mike, real quick. It's a fascinating off-season is not only the if they go out the Brown question looming. You also have three guys who potentially walk on, you know, with with Butler and Harrison JJ Harrison back. That's my opinion. You see these guys don't have the intestinal or too close game Butler does. And that's why keeps his team. I don't think there. Let them go. I don't think he's going to get like three or four. You do wants to play. We started to. Yeah. I wouldn't max amount for sure. But yeah here, but I think he'll be back. Be better to stay niece. Anyway, you go west. It's it's you know, he's at all star in east east got I mean, he should stay east. And I don't think he's gonna liquors to fry come on. Flat out for I'm glad response on his face. He deserves I'll tell you try to get Anthony Davis. And that was that was camping, you know. Yeah. Well, if they don't and landing these big fish, the Anthony Davis is the world center. They don't end up landing one of those guys. And he stuck in that in that that mess for another year. My God, man. I love it. Love it. But anyway, I love the draft, man. Richie. Jota project man, you play the NFL. Not a project up only one sack. You know, who started boatload of games? Oh my God. Guys. And he said they said it's amazing healing at four holding penalties entire season. That's impressive. I mean, really the guy. You know, he's not like guys. It's a. You know, you look at look at his technique. He could be his a pro style offense to his advantage. He can learn under Jason Peters. The other line this year. It also shows that they don't have any at all competent of how they look if I tie a backup or maybe a guy who wasn't going to be here for the long haul. And I think that a lot of commodity as much as we all blown up. Yeah. I mean, I think as much as we all think it's a great story and all that the guys played professional football for one year. And when I say played he's been on team you it's not like he got reps other than training camp or preseason game. So I think he got a slow down a little bit on on the my Lada. So this picnics a lot of sense. From what the draft signify is eagles are all in on giving Carson much every opportunity to be everything he needs. Really? I mean, the running back in first time running back in that high shady, I mean, the irony. It was the exact same pick in the second round, number wise. Amazing. But no just look at the entire off season so far. So to Sean comes back, you have the speed threat. Right. Jordan howard. You add him as the running back. They from draft standpoint, you get an offensive lineman with an eye to the future mind you, but they get enough of linemen then they get a running back, then they get a wide receiver. They are doing everything they can deliver. Because it could may lose Nate Sud bells. Yes. Somebody can develop. I like that move a little bit later. Yeah. It was a good move. I'm not he's not looking to replace Wentz. This case you lose some that's the point of getting. That's what you have to continue to add guys like that. But I like what they did. I think Sanders is going to be tremendous. I I think that him and Tim talked about the air he thinks the college where he can't idiot coach like James Branko in you know, it's like it's only step up my pig. He's also a guy who isn't going to come in beat up. I mean, he saquon he's excellent after the point of contact that you more than four yards per carry. So I mean, there's there's a lot to like with this pick better running back anywhere with blunt, and John that's my. The running back position with Howard. And and now Sanders and then getting back night day from what it was when they go into the pit go on the sunset your been watching over. I think it's I don't think we're the one that surprised who was Chris long. I thought he would be back. I'm not so surprised. Carrie move kinda signified. He's not I think that moved told us that they don't think he's
2019 NFL Draft prospects
"We're about three weeks from the NFL draft. It's been an interesting off season. If you were bears fan last season. It was interesting the bears gone out and done a lot of things this off-season than to talk about that and much much more. We bring in our guy NFL writer, Eric at home. Nice enough to jump on and Eric tonight. Everything's good. Yeah. It was just thinking these last three weeks for the drafter get a feel like any turn into here that always does every single year seems like it takes a long time here in Chicago. We've always been interested in the draft. Because usually the bears were bad a high draft pick. And now they were smart last year and traded pigs got gotta Khalil Mack. And now they've not picking until the third round unless they make a move. But I mean, I think it seems like all their other moves have been in you know, in free agency and bringing. Players in. So it's not nearly the draft excitement here in Chicago. Like, it was when just imagine if the draft was here, and it was no bears draft pick for you know, for the first day and a half down. Admit what difficult I think it would be legal to do that. The office. Like, let's about this. The bears probably will make their selection around nine o'clock. I think on Friday night. So you settle in. You know, maybe, you know, get some food get something to eat whatever it's going to be a while. I don't think they'll be moving up. They don't have a lot of picks. So yeah, it's gotta be patience is virtue for bears fans outside of kicker because kickers not real answer. When you talk about to what's the biggest need for the bears. Hang into the draft. It's a great question. You know, I think it probably, you know, I think what they did themselves. A lot of a good favor by refunding airless, you know, and just you know for a one year deal. Right. We know he's the third outside guy. But still it just eliminated one spot that you have to kinda reach four and not reach four. But you know, have to hope that somebody is at that position waiting for you in the draft. So it probably slimmed down to two maybe three or four positions. I would think running back has to be on that list. You know, I personally would like to see. Them. Get more death on the offense of line. And I think the secondary either corner or safety would be a spot they can look at and their few defensive action, the strap that I think could play, you know, cover the flight and also places safety. So there's some versatile guys in this great year for either position a corner safety, but it's deep enough where they could possibly get somebody there. So I would just, you know, spit balling kinda Dr throwing I would say those it's likely that they could be picking one of those three spots that eighty seven toys have you ever seen as I'm asking the question. I know we've all seen it. But have you? I was gonna ask you if you've seen the situation where teams running back like Jordan Howard performed relatively well and was light by many people. And but basically the head coach had no use form at this point. And that's why they ended up moving them. Yeah. I mean, obviously, totally different situation from what happened with Levy on bell. You know, those are the exceptions to the rule, but you know, it is one of those. Position where if you're not one of the elite top, you know, five or six guys in the league at your spot. You know, there's only so much teams willing to kind of sink into that dishing. I know that there have been back strapped in the top. You know, five ten picks several years, it's not gonna have this year. But it's happened. A lot in recent history or often more often than I would've expected. I know Todd Gurley got his big deal. I know other people have gotten pretty good money. That's dishing bell sign this off season. But there's a drop off, you know. And so I think if you're not special, you know, that maybe are deemed expendable depending on the system. And so you know, I can see both sides why they moved on. And I think they feel like with Mike Davis Torri Cohen, they add one more the draft. You know, maybe Ryan dollars trading Kampe preseason hero again or something like that. But you know, we'll see I think they will try to add at least one more. And then maybe an underrated free agent to add on top of that. Daryl. Patterson is. Is an interesting guy. But he's been an interesting guys come into the league. Other people have found out ways to use them and the patriots even lined him up in the backfield as a running back. Do you expect Matt Nagy to do that? Also, not only just swing passes and give them in and around and things like that. And also given the ball out of the running back position. Yeah. It's a great option. I think you know, the patriots really the first team to really unlocked at running ability. I mean like you said when he was in Oakland, you know, other places he was running those kind of gadget runs and things like that. But I mean, they line them up as a tailback and got buffalo game was it was crazy to watch. He had twenty something carries. And so, yeah, it was it was a strange thing to think about you know, a six to two hundred twenty pound receiver who could run like the wind lining up kind of power back. But he can do it. I think that really added to the appeal. He's the perfect Matt Nagy player. They'll run kick off, you know, he could be a wide receiver if you need to. I don't think he's more than. A number four. But still, you know, having that deeper out option is important. And I think that's you know, that kinda speed if Taylor Gabriel is out there, they may not have that exact replica that so it's different version of speed. And then as you said we saw last year that he can be running back, you know, in cut a break glass in case for -mergency situation. Seahawks quarterback. Russell Wilson wants a new deal. He gave the Seahawks April fifteenth as a deadline to get that deal done. Do you think he gets done in what type of deal? Do you think Russell Wilson who get from the Seahawks? So here's my hypothetical question here. Like what they let's say if April sixteenth by parents diversity, by the way. Let's. Let's say April sixteenth. They offer him. The richest TV deal of all time. You're gonna say oh sorry. The deadline. Hey, understand that this thing happened in January. We didn't really hear about it until very recently. But meeting his, you know, giving them a deadline, but you know, it just doesn't make a lot of stints. It's not a if something magical happens on that calendar day, not as some kind of contract, you know, bonus kicks in or anything else that would prevent them from getting this thing done, or if there's some kind of you know, league deadline or something like that. It's not July fifteenth and the franchise player, so it's just one of those kind of subtle threats from the from the Wilson camp saying, hey, don't forget about me, baby. You know, I still want to get my deal. I still want to get this thing done. You know, there's an opportunity for him to really cash in. And also kind of hold them hostage a little bit. I suspect it there's a good chance that gets done. But for months now there have been whispers that you know, maybe the Seahawks aren't quite prepared to pay him. What what a lot of people think he's worth it would at least entertain the idea of. What could we get you know, trade for him? Just theoretically, what would he get you know, is worth three first Thursay? We're still talking about a thirty thirty one year old guy. And there's still a handful of teams that really badly need that franchise different speaking quarterback. So I I don't know. I still think it's gonna get done 'cause that's city loves them. Even if a lot of past teammates were the biggest Russell Wilson fan. They know how much he means for the team another couple minutes with NFL writer, Eric at home and Erica week or so ago, rob gronkowski decided to retire. A lot of people on Twitter and everywhere else going, okay. The best tight end. Maybe you'll ever play the game has retired. Who's the best tight end in the NFL? Now who do you like? Yeah. I mean, that's a great question. To kinda depends what you want. So if you guys can do with grunk did which is being impact players blocker, and as receiver, you know. And and think about all the calls that were made against gronk over the years. He was kinda like the Cam Newton of the tight end position like say what that's not interference. Though, he just, you know, even with that work in Gascony was so special. I love the fact that Travis Kelsey can be as dangerous, you know, the last couple of years he's actually been a better receiver than gronk. No question about it. But he's not nearly the blocker that he is. You know, we see some of these young pass catching tight. I mean, George Kittle out in San Francisco at times has flashed like he could be the best to way tight in the league because he blocks his tail off. He's got great receiving chops. And really the only thing that's kind of held them back injuries. I don't necessarily think you can have a long career. So this might be one of those debate that we kinda have for years. I don't think there's any one guy that fills that checked off all the boxes like like gronk did. And he had injury issues too. But still when he was out there. There's really no doubt. And I don't know that that that one guy even though there are some great blockers. It's about staying receivers you rarely see both. Do you think that Jason Witten can still be productive? I don't know man this. I wanted to I know Jason Witten the player, it was outstanding. He was just so consistent day in and day. I knew what you're going to get from. He was probably, you know, he was unsexy version of gronk and that he could block and catch fast but a year off his age. I know they say they're going to come in just and all that. His feeling this thing could kind of turn south, and we could see 'cause he looked slow by the end when he was out there last time. He just wasn't the same guy. Eric, we appreciate jumping for few minutes. We'll hopefully those go to slow the next couple of weeks. We'll talk to you soon. All right. Enjoy the run up to the draft guys. Thanks. They got home jumping on talking NFL. Like Whitten wasn't good at the end. Then like fancy players, look like, wait. Hold on. Really? Like, what is she some Witten really gonna bring to the Cowboys? Here's a guy wanted to bring up to you. Because this is a guy that I thought when he got to the NFL was going to have a bigger impact than he's head and OJ Howard at the tight end. Okay. Because what we saw in college. We thought. Okay. The when this guy gets here Dowd using is just because the quarterback situation and the problems have had do you think he can still become a dominant tight end in this league? Maybe because he did it in college. And you assume that that body type in his speed is is ability to get down field. And you know, James Winstons been not very good. No. And I think a lot of people misread what Tampa Bay is doing. I don't think he's there for the long haul. I think Tampa Bay if they could find someone else to be their quarterback. They would go with that person. Yeah. So whether or not it's trying to find a quarterback in this year's draft. Or or or planning for the future? Elsewhere. But like I don't trust him as Winston do.
"jordan howard" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"And dolphins are five wins. So that's about right? I'll take the under with the Carl's. We'll take the under a special and. I don't care if his Josh Rosen whoever's at a quarterback, I just think that that's going to be a struggle. I love Larry FitzGerald, by the way, I love Larry FitzGerald, because here's a man, they're just comfortable his own scandal. Zona right. You know, every good football fan knows like Larry get outta there. Larry like a movie like a bad b movie on Saturday night. But man, you're on a you're a good player on a bad team can out of their layers. Like, no, I like Arizona, it's warm and I'm comfortable in my house houses here. Yeah. But you can't notes, okay? And that's that's really strange. I tell you one thing of Larry FitzGerald an NBA player. The hell out of there. I know that for sure I saw this. And I get a chance to talk about that this weekend because we got so much March madness and everything going on with Jordan Howard, man, we have been talking about Jordan Howard a lot here. This winter didn't we we speculated and a question Mark about it and Jordan Howard, finally traded to Philadelphia, and I see on Twitter and a couple other places on it on social media from John Howard that he expected to be traded and that just trade to Philadelphia. Apparently, he had some kind of insight before the trade took place that he was going to Philly, and it's like, wow. And so we can end this. Now, the conundrum the question like what could you get for Jordan Howard? Well, you can get a six round pick rejoin Howard. That's the question. How many licks does it take to get to the middle of a Tootsie? Roll pop. How many it takes a six round pick to get to the middle. That's what it was. Because we kept hearing. Jordan the third. Nah, no, not third fourth. Sixth round pick. And I will tell you that that has nothing to do with Jordan Howard being bad not a bad player. He just didn't fit. What Nagy want it? But as I told you when the season ended with the bears, and I'll keep saying this until we get to bourbon and through bourbon a until we get to the first game against the Green Bay Packers. Do not out dumb the room when it comes to the running game because with Mitch Trubisky. If you have any question marks about Mitchell Trubisky, the one thing that you can take solace. In is a good running game to help them out units. We might team an offensive league that you throw vertically down. The field are good running game also helps to be able to balance all that Trubisky is having a hard time. At least you can have someone you could depend on to run the football. Join Howard traded. Okay. Figure it out. I don't know of indie. Former Indiana coach Mike Davis is the answer. And I know that three Cohen is not also not the answer. I'm pretty clear on that dad player. Nice player, but not down in and down out. But if you're looking for someone that could be able to catch the football and really not just be part of a play. But really be a difference maker back there. I hope that you find it. Hope it's the right person. Hope is exactly what you're looking for Davis or through the draft or do Johnson. As we come to find out. Do Johnson says he wants to Cleveland, which is interesting figured out. If you don't think that the Detroit the traditional way of running the football between the tackles some on offense. Like, this is good enough fine. Then find the right guy find someone better than Jordan Howard. And I'm gonna tell you right now that guys on the roster is not. It out. Otherwise, did why'd you trade him. That's the whole question are I don't forget. We've got three pairs of tickets to the UFC championship doubleheader on Saturday June eighth at the United Center. I'm going to give those tickets away this hour, eight o'clock hour nine o'clock hour, if you wanna go stay you're listening to bison how you can win those tickets.

"I would still say that safety is the biggest need for the eagles. I would say that safety office of tackle running back on the three. Biggest needs edged linebacker going to be the needs following interior defensive line. I still not with you this whole into your office of line train thing. But different matter entirely. I really wanna talk about that, by the way. But go ahead. Yes, we which we will. But the eagles could go for one of six positions at the top of the draft, Johnny. I wouldn't be super shocked. And that's the way you want to be because it means if you have top fifteen grade on chancing, he's falling will then you can go up and get him knowing that you're not screwing yourself off tackle because Jason theaters for these home. That's the freedom that you have which is sick. The other the player that kind of become the titular target of this hypothetical. Freedom is at all over who. Ed, Oliver tested exactly as we expected him to his now, a top ten lakh when he wasn't before we knew he was super quick. But at all of the guy who if he's fallen eagles will love him will value him icepack that from the team. So we'll say I do believe that Jordan Howard eliminates round one running back that I do believe there was a chance at round one running back. There are people in the building who would like to see round running back, but with Howard. I don't think it happens. So I will say that. But Sunday how I on safety listened Sunday hope cost one one point three million and can be cut and you'll news hundred thousand so you'll paid five hundred thousand to maybe not draft around safety. That's honestly like very fair exchange. I mean, honestly when it comes to Sunday. Oh, if Sunday who is keeping you from drafting Gardner Johnson. Who is a round one grade and a top twenty player for me. I think you're going about the process wrong thing. He's he's not. There's no way. He is. He's anderson. I how exactly so when we come back. I actually want to get into this interior offensive line discussion made you can talk about some official visits that. The eagles have brought in to you to go on that train. That's next on the kissing Solex show episode eighty seven I believe is that what I said, I'm selling. We'll call it that Trump lead ingred nation. Get your brackets ready..

"And really you'd be hard pressed to find a single one where Howard breaks any contact before he hits the third level. And so all our is of runs it's because of the blocking before him now again doing good job hitting the holes. He has some Bill. Eighty to press the line of scrimmage to manipulate blockers. Well, it's hit or miss depending on the concept. He's good on vertical styles stuff wide zone. And traps. Some of the best place that I saw him run and those are place that Philadelphia's getting gift from him. When I say why zone specifically I'm talking about the ability to cut wide zone backup field Howard's not going to be following the wide zone track outside the way Jay Ajayi would. And that's an important thing to bring up Howard may take the Ajayi role being the primary ball carrier. But I cannot emphasize this enough charlatans believe JJ, Jordan Howard or similar players. It's not it's just not the case Ajayi and Howard can run similar concepts and have some similar traits, but aja is athleticism and ability to break tackles made him a remarkably different player than Jordan Howard, number one. He's just more dynamic. He's a better runner when the balls in his hand. He's more dangerous. He produces better number two on like Howard aja doesn't stupid stuff in the backyard. So nice because he has the athletic ability. Things can get away with it versus Howard very much. Just stick to the script player. And that's another part of the problem. Howard really struggles against penetration when things blow up in his primary. Read is in trouble Howard runs directly into contact a lot. He's kind of bright bulldoze put your head down. You can get don't get upset sort of runner. So again, a lot of stuff there that isn't bad. It isn't wrong. Like, it's very hard to poke clips for the article writing on him because so many of them are just vanilla. But there's very little that he brings that gets you excited. So you really like if Jordan Howard is gonna be a big part of the eagles offense number one. You don't really want it to big part of the eagles offense..

"A fun fact even over the past three years Howard is second in templates yard runs with Seventy-nine behind only Ezekiel Elliott with ninety five in pro football focuses allusive nece rating. Here's the bad news source to come in. He was fourteenth into thousand sixteen forty eighth in two thousand seventeen fifty ninth in two thousand eighteen his breakway percentage which measures how much of his production comes on runs of over fifteen yards or more takes a similar dip. This is kind of what I was talking about on Twitter last night in terms of Howard. I really pounded the table for him coming out of Indiana a loved his rookie season. I thought he was solid in sophomore campaign. And then last year he struggled and impart. He struggled because the offensive line, which is important context in two thousand eighteen for the bears ranked in the late twenties and just about every. Run blocking category per football outsiders, but he also struggled because he isn't really like a creator. He's more of a reliable decision maker gets to his landmark makes the correct read gets vertical doesn't really dance around in the backfield liked that aspect, but after that it really all depends on how well the defense executes on the run fits, and they're fills the going back to the positive side of the coin has protection a big bugaboo for the eagles backs last year. Howard had eighty three pass blocking snaps only two pressures allowed. That's the least for any back with over thirty pass blocking sap. So he was extremely capable in that area. Which is a good thing for us. Ben overall, when I saw the trade, I thought the value is right in terms of draft capital. The bears were obviously very willing to move on from him and look at different options and increased recons roll. The eagles are a good fit scheme wise to say I'm excited is a stretch. Yeah. I've followed Howard very closely over the years and know what he's capable of. But there are clear. Limitations on. Film that keep me from throwing parade. But overall, this is a solid issue to the backfield. Ben, how did you feel about the trade? Yes. So obviously, I had my impression of Howard eagles traded for him gone through a healthy portion of tape. I wanna get one or two more games in both seeing enough to know that he's just just Joe Jordan Howard. He's just Jordan Howard. And there's not much on his film. That's exciting. And that's not always bad. You know what I mean? Like Jordan Howard regularly goes where he supposed to go so already when those small would goodbye forever, right like, and that's that's the nature of the eagles running back room last year. Big, you know, Jordan Howard going where he's supposed to go means. He has already equal on the level of court commend Darren sproles as runners before like we've gotten to line of scrimmage in terms of what you've got off from Josh out what you got from window Smallwood. So there's that Jordan Howard lacks allusive traits. He's not a high tackle breaker, despite the fact that he's big powerful. He's much more likely to run through guy and get four yards instead of three three instead of. Two than he is to power over a guy keep his feet and keep going. And that's the thing is that Howard is a, you know, a six one two hundred twenty five back who runs a little bit upright. And so his contact balance. Isn't you know, what they always to twenty pounds? He can be taken down by safeties and corners decently regularly. He breaks tackles from corners. Absolutely. But safe these taken down with pretty notable regularity. Howard is not have a high degree contact balance. So he finishes Ron's. He can put his nose down and drive a pile. When like, you know, a defensive tackle trying to make that half arm tackle on him like your half engaged with the lion half. Tackling. How're can take him a ride for two or three yards? And that's good. That's objectively good. But that's the best. You're gonna see in terms of Howard getting more than what's blocked for him. I was ripping through Howard's ten plus yard runs from this year..

"I saw the price exactly to be fair. I just saw that. I follow text messages and slack channel is like Jordan Howard. And I was like, okay. That's all right. Yeah. They needed to do something. And I'm glad they did that. But once I saw the cost. Okay. Philo bit better. So start out the pros. He's only twenty four. That's very good. He's young. He is clearly a productive volume player. And I think that's kind of important to note here because you can look at counting stats and people do that a lot especially in the NBA or the NFL whatever. And there's value in that in being volume player is clearly not anyone not just anyone can do that like dance Bowles. Can't you couldn't give him the work that Jordan is not gonna hold up? He's not gonna last even Darren sproles in his primates. Does not that kind of player. Now, there's volume there's value in that. But I also think like you have to be officiant too. So Jordan Howard. You know, he's having hit a tiny yards last year, but he only at three point seven yards per carry. So that's not as great another thing. I did like is he s created out. Well in pass protection by pro football, focus on have to go back to that closer myself. But just for now, I take that as a positive sign, obviously the Olsen you up. To get him. It's another pro he's relatively durable. Just kinda surprising, given his physical running style. But he's only missed one game in his past three seasons here in the NFL. So that's I think that's a good thing. I think when you look at this move from a compact perspective, obviously that you will didn't do anything to cost themselves a compact of the give a pick next year, which you know, kind of you have to factor that in. But yeah, you can get a Compaq for Jordan Howard. Now, if you don't resign him after the season if he has a good year, and you don't wanna pay him big money, which I think is very possible than all of a sudden another team signs him and you discussed a draft pick. That's potentially better than what the bears gave you. So there you go you're getting some euro to getting some kind of return potentially if he leaves? So that's a good thing to keep in mind. He's Tepe John. He's only two million in base salary this year. So you're not really eating into the cap space too much menu. Checking off all a Howie Roseman boxes here man Dey what young cheat? Cami. He's big he's to thirty. So I think this is John talked about wanting league Arab back last year. You wanted that that running back? This is him. This is like this is like the new lira blunt in this offense. He's big he's good in short yardage. That's something. I think that's honestly, one of the big one of the bigger selling points of the straight. Heels were terrible in short yardage last year when it came to at least running back production like Josh Adams was some kind of crazy bad numbers which was surprising on the surface because you look at Josh Adams in you're like, wow. That guys big you should be able to punch forward in get you a first down on fourth shirt third in short. But he couldn't in seven carries on third or fourth down in one or two last year. Josh Adams had negative eight yards in no I down. So he was horrible. And that that comes from Jimmy Campsie. So you bring in Jordan Howard. And all of a sudden you have someone who is more effective in short yardage because as David era. Noted he has twenty one of thirty one conversions on third and fourth of two or fewer yards in eighteen. So it's a seventy four percent convert rate for perspective as Elliot converted seventy six. So if you wanna put that mine. Yes. So I just got someone who can help you out in short yardage. You got someone who checks the boxes and all the categories..

So that's what we did today. Facing the defending Super Bowl champion the Philadelphia Eagles in the wild card round. Why should the eagles and the rest of the teams in this playoff scenario be concerned about the Chicago Bears? Well, we have a dominant defense number one. But all due respect to everything that we're going to play going forward. But I feel like we're the better team in in every scenario we step on the field. And so it won't change the playoffs. You guys have twelve regular season wins. The last time you had this many wins in a season. It was two thousand six when the Chicago Bears went to the Super Bowl. I wasn't here.

"To go back a couple of weeks to grab a Jordan Howard touchdown run. And a lot of fantasy owners want to know what do they do here? Because Torri Cohen obviously saw the majority of the touch is out of the backfield for the bears, but will points outs. That's a large portion of those came through the passing game. And that's exactly what you should expect going forward from Matt Nagy in is usage of tweet. Cohen don't think that three Cohen has all of a sudden usurped Jordan Howard and the bears backfield. And no there was some discussion about the idea that the bears could actually entertain trade talks for Jordan Howard. And I'm here to tell you that's nonsense. The bears are three and one. Trending upward fully invested this year as they've traded to fruit future. First round picks. Four Khalil Mack. They are not trading. Jordan Howard anytime soon. I promise you that. If anything that's something a notion they could entertain in the off season. I would be absolutely stunned. If the bears traded, Jordan Howard and also as the weather gets colder here, by the way. It's you know, we're in the mid forties here on Sunday October fourteenth in Chicago. Obviously they're playing in Miami. But guess what it's not getting any warmer in Chicago as we as the winter approaches Jordan Howard will get his fair share of the workload in the bears backfield. And if you have a fantasy owner in your league who's a bit anxious because Jordan Howard is saw a little bit of a reduced role against the bucks a couple of weeks ago. And maybe they're willing to sell Jordan Howard at a discount. Go all in go ahead and make that deal because Jordan Howard, isn't luck. He's not an elite fantasy football running back. But for your purposes, he would slot in nicely as your second running back. So if you have an anxious Jordan Howard owner in your league, go ahead and trade for him. Because I guarantee you the what we saw against the bucks is not going to be a consistent feature in the bears offense, Jordan Howard. We'll see his workload. Colts.

Now there is a quarterback away from three quarterback away from three and a one. Let's see here we text line coming in or trade Trubisky from three one to two Green Bay for a bag of practice balls and a case of spotted cow. Would we get the spotted cow? That's my question. I don't think so. But I think he could you know, maybe a solid light beer. Probably. Right. I mean, I think maybe you could get a Miller lite. No disrespect but spotted cows a premium bureau be that's a good case right there. I don't know if you're getting that. All right three one nine eight one seventy two hundred. Let's go to Tony who's been the most patient at this point. Tony, welcome WGN. Hey, great listening to you guys. I hate to. Practically doom and get all up at various. But what bothered me today was was fourteen to not the bears ran a two yard line and second and third down. They throw the stupid pass the second touchdown. Of course, they ran the ball with our and he scored so why didn't they run the ball with Howard when they were down fourteen and a two yard line explained that to be fair question because he he wants to go opposite. And that's part of growing up as a head football coach in the National Football League. He's trying to be that cutesy fancy offensive guru instead of saying sometimes you're down there just smash mouth in and get a touchdown. That's up. It's pretty simple. I mean, it was asking you obey. I mean is there any rationale for this? You know, shiny objects offensive game plan of ours to refuse to do. What's logical and hand it to your best player on offense and let him score. Well, Tony what happened? What it goes a little bit beyond that? We go out there. And I said we played probably the worst team in the National Football League offensively. They're dead. Bottom eaters. Every statistic there on the bottom, and we struggle and get the lucky break calls from the referees. And it's the same thing. You just watch. When Trubisky throws the ball just watch where it goes. The guy has the most difficult difficult time with accuracy. And what Dan said all this guy would his trickery his his lineups. He had four out wide in a diamond lineup. And he throws the pass to the guy and the outside, and he was covered this. I'm sorry, folks. I you sit there and you're trying to be negative about this. But how? When you score four touchdowns in three games. Excuse me with a quarterback that you gave up everything I'm planning to do. And for absolutely no reason, there's a million more things I could say, but the only good thing I could say we won the game. But the rest of it if you're sought it was not good. Not good is not good enough. When you play a quality team or a good team. And like I said next week we got Tampa Bay and laugh if you want they went in and beat New Orleans, and then they beat the defending Super Bowl champions at home. I got to play Pittsburgh tomorrow night. We'll we'll find out more about it. But here's one other thing. And we're going to get back to the callers, please hold on part of this offense, and the and its ineffectiveness is the RPO we all here. RPO RPO. Everybody goes on the run pass option. Okay. That's that means a quarterback has the option of handing it off. To the back taking it and running himself are being able to pull it out. And then raise up and hit somebody on a slant on it. There's a triple option there, and we refuse we refuse to do anything other than run it and headed off to the Divac, which is Jordan Howard. But what do you do that? You've got two guys that are not involved in blocking and do the math. That's what what seven guys balking instead of nine when he kept a quarterback in the running back. So at the end of the day all this little RPO Bs is doing is keeping our offense stride and out of balance. So said the last several years we've had a defense that you can win a Super Bowl with. Okay. A defense that you could win every year is basically offense that's gone on offense. We know he at the throw the ball. We know we have to get a quarterback. It's year after year. We Cutler we bring this guy and that guy, and we have Mike Glennon last year eighteen and a half million for one year guaranteed. He couldn't hit up. He he couldn't get anything. Okay. A year they go out to fix this offense new cultures new head coaches new coordinator's office and look at us year after year after year, we look like fools out there defensively, we looked like champs. So they actually have and the defense has been fine. The last couple, but now they have an impact championship defense. And you've got a second year quarterback in the first year head coach, I I'm curious from what you've seen so far you're sitting here with the first base first place team. Now, it's three weeks in we have a light years to go. But like, how do you if you're the bears go forward with what you've seen from Mitchell Trubisky? So far are you going to let him actually grow and having? Throw the football thirty thirty five times a game. Or are you going to sit there and try to run it and be as conservative as possible and just try to win their right ready being conservative as possible and managing around their quarterback. Tire draft to get a quarterback the hand the damn football off. Let's be realistic about this. We got we tried everything to get a quarterback that's a legitimate passer in this league. Because that's how you win. But he's not done for two years. But it doesn't matter. What you do? Now. You gotta go forward. What you did? And and they're trying to win. So their game plan is we're going to try to win while hiding the quarterbacks right fishing much. And you know, what he there has to be a way to break through and you teach him how to go to the next level because he's regressing say it is what it is. He's regressing. Let's get back to the calls. Three one nine eight one. Seventy two hundred is the phone number here. Let's Jason in Florida. Thank you for calling will be with Gaza and seven twenty WGN. Go ahead. Jason. Hey, what's up guys talk to you? I'm trying to figure out negative flossy here. It looked like he was trying to run to set up the past there in the beginning of this game. And it did. Okay. But they're not learn the right of formations to do that with ever seen one. I formation in the last three games mean they came out of the first play the game. Green Bay read a t formation and they're just not doing. I can't figure out his philosophy. Fangio's coverage schemes are like porous at times. It's got the Russian. We got McIntyre because we'd be getting just take the part wasn't for that rush. Right. Okay. I'll tell you. Right. Quick might my sister-in-law in or second. Love is you give a shot out more similar serenaded embarrassed her, but you're her second love of her life, the checks in the mail. Thanks, pal. Hey, you know. And here's the other thing everybody. I'm at a golf tournament. Oh, wow. This defense is like the eighty five we want him to demolish people. But let me tell you something the reality is that that inbred offense cardinals was driving. Honestly, only reason we got him stopped. We're four turnovers three of those were just a magnificent individual efforts. But I mean, we weren't stopping him. I mean think about it. I mean those interceptions came down coast to the red zone. Passer penalties. Well that was their defense. I've just saying, but who can cook the officials helped us for offense to get their measly one touchdown and on defense three individual place where we stripped the ball and those too early pigs. They were the difference in the ballgame. Thank goodness. We had players that were able to make that Jackson Jackson hasn't really flashed the first two games. That was a big league interception. It was ninety percent of their safeties. Don't make that play. I'm telling you. He's a keep. Yeah. He's a good on three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred I want to get back to what you were saying about Trubisky OB in a second. But first, let's let us serve Jeffrey in Des Moines wants to talk about Leonard Floyd. Go ahead. Jeffrey. Yeah. Forget that pace traded up into the top ten to draft Leonard Floyd. And I was.

What do you make? I actually I went to Gastropod on. I actually like prediction is. I think Carson Wentz is going to be coming back week five against the Vikings at home. Thing clear for God's. I you know, they're gonna find out on a home game awakening. I don't I do not assume that you don't think. So. No. I mean, what's the difference? I mean Carson Wentz. A pro he's a sort of a vet like what part of being on the road. Can't he handle? That's there's no issue. Hey. Okay crowd. So fired up. His first time back is a home game. Okay. Kevin. Let me ask you this. If you feel he's ready to go week four, you really believe that. And you're on the road in Tennessee. Are you telling me, you're not gonna play them? So that the crowd week five at twelve fifty nine is quote, so fired up. And that doesn't make any sense. I know what you mean. I just think it'd be better, especially if I don't know. Oh, yeah. Next two games. Why not keep him in? But I've kind of Kevin. Having a camera when he's ready, and I think he's gonna be ready st-. We agree. I think there there's no reason to hold them back. Kevin best movie about a real life person. What is it? Gosh, I ask you a quick question. And then okay, my answer. Of course. This is mainly for Joe mean, John and Jamie because John no you pick like fourteen tight end. So don't have like the best opinion. One. Hammer, you're talking to go ahead. All right. So I have Jordan Howard Adrian Peterson. And my mom. No. I need to out of their three starting so Jonah day meeting answer when I hang up we're gonna we're gonna give you that answer. Kevin giving the movie based on a person who is obviously. I I would say for chew story like van stadium apply. Ryan I love giving private Ryan Kevin. You gotta make good here from you. And we'll get you to the Phillies game next year. All right. Those three players Richie. I'd have to look at their matchups. I mean, I mean, I think Jordan Howard lock going up against Seattle and Lamar Miller he gets all. Well, actually, Alfred blue vulture him last week still. That's down. But I think Lamar Miller. Peterson against Indy. That's a nice match up there too. I mean, they're all good options. I think yours. Jordan Howard, certainly. Again, the matchups dictate everything I think all three are really viable, certainly AJ. Power to Miller is what I would do. I'm with you Adrian Peterson. Do you think he takes a step back? I mean, I don't I think early in the season he's going to continue to have success again. Maybe later in the week. We can get to that. When I actually have time to look at who they're playing get there. Let's talk to Ted in hat borough. Ted what's going on, man? What's going on guys? How you doing John? Joe? Great ted. I got last caller just up my movie show. I'm shout out to the hard rock me. And my wife, my wife, and I just spent three nights down there. Awesome place. It really is. I mean, this is Vegas is Vegas here in Atlantic City. It's beautiful. It's it's a wonderful place. We're really impressed. We were really everything looks new. And of course, it is new. Now.

Then awesome. Hi, pal. Appreciate the phone. Call ted. I was thinking as he was talking there. Johnny wanted to go saving private Ryan. He did not go Shakespeare law, which is not a movie truly based on. It's based on experience stood. It's not it's not. It's your store not your store. So it would not qualify as an answer. Let me ask you James, and John did it bug you kiss? It did not bug me. But I know a lot of people particularly a lot of guys were not happy that Shakespeare in love won the best picture instead of saving private Ryan. Now, you got to interesting concepts. Here you got war, which is a huge part of humanity. Unfortunately, and you have love which is a huge part of humanity. Shake Shakespeare in law versus saving private Ryan. John Ritchie, which ones should have one. I was absolutely overwhelmed. When I went and saw saving private Ryan. Yep. I was not overwhelmed when I went and saw Shakespeare I was actually in private, well, listen, my here's a good move. Here's. Here's my private Ryan. Right. Well, it's not the it's not the what the movies are about. It's just in my mind, David Bryant, right? Was a better movie. Well, here's my here's the one problem. I had was saving private Ryan. And it's a great movie. No question. My problem was the first twenty minutes was which was the most unbelievable war action movies sequence that to that point. And I'd say to this day still ever been made which was just mind blowing home remarkable it was to me the next two hours or however long it lasted couldn't live up to the first twenty to thirty minutes. Like, I felt like the movie climaxed in the first twenty minutes and the kind of. Kind of you know, kind of bug me a little bit. It was amazing. Don't get me wrong. But I I thought Shakespeare in love was great. I know a lot of people won't agree with that. But you know. That's where I'm down. That's where I'm at. It's got to Robin Roberts up on your why? Rob was the wire. Can come over tonight. Oh, we're gonna put you on hold because we don't we don't wanna d thirty. We don't know what's going on back. There. We probably we probably don't wanna know.

"Going to be the guy. He's the number two on the depth chart right now that doesn't matter. Yeah, it'd be it means a lot more now than it did we too, but they can still play Christian kurkin three receiver sets. He's the better of the two. It's possible. I cut him in the Scott fish bowl, so I would have to run the most routes besides layer for Chiro. We don't really like the Arizona. Dave has seventh, but Jamie and heath fifteenth nineteenth cardinals GST and Bradford. Yup. Starting to think maybe I wanna fan to a lineup with Bradford ended his last three games that he started and finished thirty one twenty eight and thirty one fantasy points. Of course, two of them were in two thousand sixteen, but starting to think maybe it's not a bad idea against the I put together the guys that I was playing on planning on playing this weekend and fan duel. He is definitely one of the six or seven quarterbacks. Chicago is at Green Bay stat of the game. They were seventeen wide receivers with seven more targets against Green Bay last year. Seven or more targets seventeen wide receivers. They averaged. Eleven and a half fantasy points non PR. That is huge. I brought this up. I think yesterday, but I, you know, I said at the time I feel like Robinson is tough to gauge, and I'm gonna ask you, do you feel comfortable starting anyone other than Trey Burton in this game for the guests for the bears for the bears Jordan Howard, for sure. Jordan Howard, and I'm okay with Alan Robinson as a number two receiver. Yeah, I think that's fair. Given where you drafted him and what the the matchup should be. It's gonna be interesting how these backers corners because they're all brand new. Yeah, they're old but new, right, and it's a new defensive coordinator. There's a lot of youth back there. I think they'll be much better than they were last year. I don't know if they will be in week one cracked. That's that's like the best way to put it. He thank you. Thank you. You're welcome. Are we got to wrap it up. So we start Rogers, situ Bisky starting. Okay, Adams? Yes. What about Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison. Thank you. Yep. Let's see what they do. It is like Aaron Rodgers Sunday night at home. So we like he, he could throw five touchdowns onto Adams, Jimmy grow, k Williams, outback. Backfield. All right. So I think this is a bit of a wait and see game and to Rico in any interest there. There were actually Green Bay was terrible against pass. Catching running backs. Last year, there were seven running back so at either fifty yards or touchdown against the Packers receiving, I wouldn't be surprised to be maxed out at six inches in the game. Okay. But let's PR. Sorry, last question. Do you have concerns that Jordan Howard has a bad game 'cause they're getting blown out. A little bit, but not enough to sit him. I I, yeah. The nice thing about that is if if the bind by two or three swerves we'll get to see of Nagy was being honest when he said that Jordan reads not coming on passing place. That's a good call. Also the inside linebackers for the Packers are not so hot right now, couple injuries that they're dealing with and that'll help the interior of the bears line is good. Okay. So just sorry for the correction said, Jordan Reed, mentor, John Howard, not coming off the field and he's at I, we'll be doing a mailbag in just a few hours. You'll hear it on Saturday. Thank you listening to the NFC whole gamespot guests to lamps. Out of here. Boom. Bye. Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom..
