Newton rust for a pair of touchdowns and 75 yards on a Patriots quarterback record. 15 carries It was great. It was what you were expected it to be. I'm just so blessed to have this opportunity to be affiliated with an organization. You know, knowing that in itself is a blessing to get a win. That's another added plus Jordan. Howard's one yard TD with 10 14 remaining brought Miami within three, but Sony Michelle's one yard TD and J. C. Jackson pick of Ryan Fitzpatrick in the end zone sealed

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
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.

"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..

"Like Jordan Howard running back for the Chicago Bears is joining us right now on the show. Jordan, welcome to the show. Jordan big game today in Minnesota divisional opponent, and it's a game where there really wasn't a whole lot to gain for for you guys. Once the savings were locked up. But how important was it for your team yet the conference to be able to go into the playoffs coming off a nice win? Carpet, we will up on the way back in the game. And it's always good to be arrive up. Often been in the playoffs. So there's definitely. Our twenty one carries one hundred and nine yards in the twenty four ten victory over the Vikings. And what was the key to getting their running game going today against the Vikings defensive front? Oh you game. Play. We go committed early. Second play of the game. Got like got a good game. Position and Peter make the play and then got a fear. What's the relationship like with your backfield? Make Tariq when you guys are so different as far as you're running styles when your power slash near the big workhorse. And he is the guy that does it in a variety of ways, what's your relationship? Like, what type of respect for the guy? Arlene, great respect for him. He's known to do so many things I wish I could just feed obvious. We're talking to Jordan Howard running back for the Chicago Bears. Jordan what were the expectations going into the season? Because I know a lot of people thought the Vikings were the Packers going to top the NFC north. For me entertained, whatever the NFC, nor everyone go to play off everywhere. We knew anybody a lot of people didn't really thing we could do it in overlook doesn't sell. But that's okay. 'cause underdog always come out on top. What's the what does Mitchell Trubisky brain to your team's young quarterback? I can do with his legs. He has a strong arm. It doesn't always have necessarily the biggest passing stats. Well, what does he bring to that offense? He just always points. He makes players especially when we did him. No matter who who's it a game or something like that is somebody who has a lot of spirit. He's on a trusted them to make a play by play. He just always. Something happen in Jordan lasts before. We let you go. A lot of people are talking about coach of the year candidates Matt night. He's up there with anybody. Give us your pitch on. Why you think he's so good? He's a he's a very competitive came in their fire and stuff like that. He had a plan for us in goals person. What is help achieve that? But yes. Motivator. Like goes all in and stuff like he doesn't. He's never companies. I was just very confident that we can beat anybody. Do anything. Jordan. Thanks for joining us on the show. Congrats on the win twenty four to ten over the Minnesota. Vikings luck and going into the playoffs this season. Thank you. You know, what I wanted to ask Jordan was now they're going to be playing the eagles. How does it feel to help? The eagles. You help the eagles get in the playoffs. Now, you have to play against them. Oh, yeah. A lot to do with who they're going to play. Whether it was the Vikings or the eagles Philly obviously needed to get that win. But you'll Minnesota they were found a way to beat them back to back. I don't know if that's something that the bears have been interested in. I I don't think that that's something any team is really interested in when you have to play somebody two weeks in a row, so not necessarily the best situation for Chicago. But now they get a chance to play the eagles. They've got a good run game. They have young talented quarterback. Eagles are a little bit nicked up and beat up to see exactly what's going to happen. But you know, their quarterback situation of foles will be healthy. Or if they'll try to slide Carson Wentz back in their award. If it could be the third stringer Nate subtle, but I like the Chicago Bears and what they bring to the table. Now, he's obviously very talented coach. And they've got a lot of good players on that offense. I think it's going to be a really good up coming into or that game against the Chicago Bears in the Philadelphia Eagles because you just can't keep count the eagles out. I bet the bears are going to be favored. But you just never know what they're going to do coming into it. And I'm assuming that Nick foles is going to be. Okay. And he'll be starting for the Philadelphia Eagles in that playoff game. But on the other end, I know the Minnesota Vikings lost. And and I and I asked Jordan Howard. The question of a lot of people saw coming into the season. It was going to be the Minnesota Vikings or the Green Bay Packers that were going to top this division. But instead it is the Chicago Bears. And you know, if you're sitting at home if you're one of the Minnesota Vikings, I mean, Bobby where do you go from here? How do you what needs to be done to help them rebuild their team or get back to an NFC championship? Like they were just there last year. Talent. They do have the talent their offensive line struggled immensely this year. They lost. Tony speranza. Oh who was their offense of line coach before the season, you know, his unexpected unfortunate passing. You know, everybody acts like you just continue from last season. I do think that there is a point where you can build momentum. Like it was important for the Cleveland Browns, the finish strongly. I think that that was really important for them moving forward in their progression. Been great for them to get a win today. But the Minnesota Vikings went to the NFC AFC NFC championship last year. Loss to the eagles. It's crazy. He goes go win the Super Bowl all really needed. They thought was a quarterback. Well, the problem is like no two teams are like you may be wearing the same uniform. Same jersey the same helmet. A lot of the players may be the same and have the same names. But their relationships are going to be different. What you ask guy to do is going to be a little bit different in some usually get some breaks in some years. You don't. And so when those things start to happen like everybody actually gets just all through this quarterback in here. We're better deposition were the same everywhere else. We upgraded here there, and we're going to be good. You have injuries. Maybe you lose a game that you would have won the year before. And it's impossible to understand. How those things we're going to be going to react to them. It's such an organic process building a team, and it starts anew each and every season. So I know the Minnesota Vikings are disappointed they'll probably look back. And I don't think they're going to blow up this team by any stretch. They're gonna look at areas that they're deficient. How can they get better on most notably the offensive line because it's one that's not talked about unless it's not very good. They've got a lot of weapons around. Kirk cousins, I don't not dumping this loss all on his feet. I'm not saying that he's the reason he needed to be played better times they need help. And defensively. They're beat up Xavier Rhodes was up throughout the year. Everson griffen. Missed some time some personal issues. They've got to figure out what it is for them. And I think it starts with the offensive line. I think you said something really important because sometimes as fans we have this insatiable appetite where we do expect for you to be the exact same way that you were the last year, and we we we almost demanded of you, and it is very unfair. And I love what you said. It's just because you're wearing the same uniform doesn't mean you're the exact same team if you would have that gray suit on twenty nine. As. They can't see. Next year. You're going to be a different person than you are right now, your experiences going change, you you get a little bit older. You're never as young as you're going to be as you are right now race remember that that's the reality in life. This reality sports, Debbie Downer. Right. My goodness. Almost a new last show two thousand eighteen for us. We're dropping reality bombs on everybody. I need let everybody know. That's how it is. And I'm wearing well, let's shift the focus shift. The negativity onto something else. Did did, you know because let's let's talk quarterbacks is what they what the Vikings did do a replace case keenum after making it to the NFC champion JV ship with Kirk cousins who is one of the highest payed quarterbacks right now, if not the highest paid, I'm not quite sure. But here's a statistic, none of the six highest paid quarterbacks made the playoffs. That's Aaron Rodgers. Matt Ryan Kirk cousins, Jimmy G, Matt Stafford Derek Carr. I mean, maybe that's not the answer. Well, you need great quarterbacks. And you need great quarterback play to be able to have success. Like, that's the reality. A great quarterbacks aren't being paid. But aren't let's look at what I just said. Somehow drew Brees is on that list. I don't know how accurate that is. Maybe getting some bad information. Drew Brees is right there if he's not right on the outside. I'm not exactly sure what he's making. Here's the thing. Jared Goff on a rookie deal. Mitchell Trubisky on a rookie deal dot Prescott on a rookie deal. Carson Wentz on a rookie deal. Nick foles a backup fell starting. He's he's third string guy. You look at the AFC Kansas City. Pat Mahomes on a rookie deal. Tom Brady, historically took less money. So this team can always fill out pieces around him to Shawn Watson on a rookie deal. Lamar Jackson on a rookie deal. And then you have to figure out obviously, Indianapolis in Tennessee, Tennessee has Marcus mariota on a rookie deal. Andrew luck gets paid pretty well. Philip rivers gets paid pretty well. But most. Those guys we talked about what did I keep saying on? Because you can pay a lot of other guys. And if you think you have the right guy, you go all in all in early. You saw him do it out in Los Angeles. You saw him doing Kansas City. They're doing it in Houston. I bet Cleveland's in that in that boat next year. No, yeah. You gotta cheat quarterback. We think he's pretty good flood him with talent. And we'll see if we can steal a Super Bowl. We'll worry about a roster when we have to pay them. What that looks like then? But let's try to do it while these guys are cheap now and just to answer what you said before drew Brees is the seventh highest paid. So you're right there. He was right on the cusp look at you, Bobby. All right coming up next. A more than just a pretty face. You said you're just a pretty face. Okay. So I get I get trashed for wearing the gray suit. But you get complimented for telling yourself are giving yourself the government of having a pretty face. Okay. Enough of you Bobby joining us right now on the shell Pennzoil performance line. We have Dante Fowler with us for them from the Los Angeles Rams. Hey, what's up? Congrats on the win. Today. Defense doing a good job there early. Obviously San Francisco getting on the board a little bit later in the game. How does your experience from last year's AFC Ron helped this help this young Rams defense? Oh, you know, just mentality is just you know, what we have to get done. You know to win games of like this week coast. Mcveigh did a really good job of emphasizing that most..

"It's not running into a wall life too. I saw in the eighties. Some of the ninety s he does not like that. But you know, that Jordan Howard is special. He's a very put Jordan Howard is a good football player mean he scratched a special joint. Howard is a good football player. And so as to recall when they're good football players that can be able to run outside and could be able to make plays. So we can look at it from from from that standpoint that those two should be able to run the football. And then, of course, Nagy said, well, why should we continue to run the football? We'll run it. When we want to some people are just in fantasy football fantasy football. It's about being able to utilize the most of your offense, especially if Trubisky can't get it down the field enough to help the team win just use everything you have at your disposal. The run game was at your disposal. Look at what the bears have been able to do with the running game the last three weeks. It's it's been pretty solid. They can utilize running game because it's their assault off into blind without Kyle long, by the way, I know his name has been mentioned past few weeks because a beer is able flourish without him. But man, I know the importance of Kyle long, and I have to give. The offensive line credit the ball. Sometimes does not get out quickly, which is still surveying the scene. Look inside the sign trying to figure out who the pass the ball to the offense of line is giving Trubisky time. And of course, the wide receivers as well. There is not one wide receiver that has emerged as a Sara Lee as this breakout guy, but I will say that from the Taylor Gabriel's and from Anthony Miller to Trey Burton to Allen Robinson. She heen. It's so good to see the these wide receiver staying patient and working with Trubisky because there's no one that stands out to me, but they're all working in concert together for the bears offense and once again a championship team. And a defense leads the way this has been my entire existence is a bears fan. The offense is not horrible. But they still didn't catch up to the defense because the impact players on the defensive bears we've illustrate those those defensive players in how could they have been. But I think that when you develop your own players and add something special to your team to be a playoff team cluele Max Bell availability puts his team in the playoffs you develop your own players as something special like Khalil Mack. And guess what? Now, you have a culture. And now you have a playoff team. So Felix open the phone lines at three one two three three two ESPN three three two three seven seven six our phone number. I want to hear from you. Because the question I have for you is very simple. If you're a bears fan listening to this show. I want to get your thoughts because my first time talking to you about the bears, and and as NFC north champions owes you tell me what stands out as the number one reason for you. Why the bears are the NFC north champions? Why are the bears in this position right now? I want to get your answers in here on our shelves. We get on the record because I'm gonna go. Through some things in the Facebook wall facebooKcom until you call I've laid out both sides of the football. And are now I want to hear what you think. Because what are you talk about this together? So the number one reason in your mind that the beards are in this position right now three one two three three two ESPN is our phone number so looking onto Facebook while facebooKcom I'll just give you a little flavor. And then we'll get to the phone lines here from you here on our beer down Tuesday's as they'd have a show yesterday. So Davis Gerald says this he says the combination of really good coaching some experience like Fangio some newer like Nagy, but talented plus players who really have a passion desire to excel the tradition of prior hall of fame level players for the beer seems to have an impact on the current generation. So interesting thoughts there from Dan FitzGerald. Some other things here on the Facebook wall. Jamie Baker talks about the BU you mentality of the team. Now, the b you thing B Y O U two words on the play card the play sheet for Matt Nagy? If you watch the bears game you've seen this backwards, of course. But you've seen this right where it's almost reminded to him. Because Nagy's kid says you just be yourself be yourself. Right. So the and tally of the team that comes from Nagy being himself. Yes. And his personality that we've seen so far is to be able to as I mentioned earlier, essentially, at the positives and negatives with his offense because if we're honest you, and I were always honest with each other. You know that the bears offense that looked like New Orleans offense. A look like Kansas City's officers. Look like the Rams when they were good offense. It doesn't look the same. Because I think that Nagy sees what we all see in that the offense is still trying to develop. It's not a an offense in which is just this madman type thing where you just hit. You know? When you hit hail Mary and then have four receivers down the down the field, and let them keep going every time. You had hail Mary that you try to throw it to receive on the left side right side. It's really a lotta razzle dazzle a lot of short passing games and trying to get a run after the catch. So the BU mentality is Nagy doing a good job of trying to get Trubisky. More and more coupled with the offense every single time he says these dudes aren't afraid to play the game their way, and it seems to give them more confident. That's from Jimmy Baker on Facebook. Facebook dot com. Len Ackerman longtime media guy here in Chicago says they were in the right place at the right time. Everyone must stay healthy and momentum must be hot. This is the formula to win from my buddy. Lynn who. Does a great job coverage. Saga sports for a long time here. Dan radius says that the bears have made some great additions to the team via drafting free agency and trades that have helped get this defense back to being dominant and the offense under control of someone. Who knows what he's doing? He's talking about Matt. Now, you there as I mentioned, the defense is all I thought always been pretty solid. But I think that when Khalil max, they're requiring a double team have have you isolated. Have you watched some of Khalil Mack just one on one all Khalil Mack? So great. Khalil mack. Sometimes whether it's a double team men. I mean, he just wants swim move. He backed into a sack on Sunday against Rochester. Crazy. That's how good he is. So I just will never understand what the raiders are thinking right there. I'm sorry. What Jon Gruden was thanking all that time the Monday night booth and couldn't see the talent of Khalil Mack. All right. Then. Airbus says he says I really love the play of the defense. And he Jackson was a steel in the draft as quickly becoming one of the best. If not the best safety in the league, he is play affords the defense to take chances without fear of failure. That's from Aaron Boston. That's a great point big Eddie Jackson fan, and then actually get a chance to meet it for the first time football night in Chicago show. Great to talk to him. A young man with a very bright future. Opportunistic is the ultimate opportunist on this football team without question. Enrico Gonzales says that the defense Khalil Mack. The one trade Ryan pace bears fans will remember for a long time. If they win the Super Bowl is is Khalil Mack. And he says oh and nagging the offense. I mean, here's the thing. Max stands out more. So than anything else when that Trey took place you saw the best player on the team. And then when MAC was not part of the bears, you still trying to figure out is Aleki Hicks is that any Jackson who was the best player on the beers before MAC out here so open the phone lines Felix three one two three three two ESPN three three two three seven seven six our phone number. You tell me we've already got some submissions of Facebook. Now, we'll get the lines going here by asking you what stands out as number one reason why the AFC north champions get your phone calls coming up after this. You're listening to under the hood..

But I'm just saying there's sometimes I feel like what did they say? The quickest way between two points is a straight line, right? Sometimes Nagy likes to yours. Yeah. See I love that. He he's a riverboat gambler. He takes chances. How would people have felt if like when Tariq Colin through that foot? It went underneath. That ball actually hit that guys are. Yeah. Do you think would have been forgiving? They just would've said, hey, you know, what listen I love the design of the play was grass ever. Do you think people would have exercised outcome bias and said, why are you being so I- cares? I mean, he said. Finish fan. What what do you say? When that's one play. No time on the clock. You have to score run your best, and they had confidence in that. They installed that for the patriots game. I would have been good. Even like that. I don't think was too cute. I think he took out a play that he knew worked and he got you the touchdown. I'm okay with. I mean is it not too cute and it worked again? But like when the eagles ran that play. It wasn't last play the game to tie things up. There was some some comfort room in there for that. So if you're telling me your best play is treat Cohen throwing the football. Okay. He was asked is there? Anybody at Halas hall who has the authority to say, you're being too cute. Somebody might eventually say something to him. Have a guy. He said Sylvie that he has somebody that makes make sure he's not being predictable. He's got guys whose I he's got a self Scott who scouts him. So there's a scout on staff whose Scott Nagy to tell if he's falling into any sort of a pattern that can be like a dressed by another team. And then he's got three guys one one of them's stayed tobe son who scans college scans the pro for a play that they could put in to their offense. Right. It's great to have the self scout. Because you do you know you've got the blinders on as a head coach, especially if you're basically the offensive coordinator as well. And you just start getting a little crazy. It's tough too. Because listen he's he's focused on column plays. And he's also now going to be cognizant of timeouts and the time and ED's bitten him once or twice this year. We all come to the same conclusion though, regardless first of all Andy Reid mix. Mistakes. Bill valid chuckle. Make a mistake. I don't think anyone's Bill Belichick ever made a mistake. I think he has gone pain. Yeah. I mean, this guy is hitting pretty much complicated in the pressures on. There's so many distractions. Yeah, it's not easy to do. It's not easy to do. By the way. I heard Carmen going off today on you know, you guys are overplaying the Sean McVeigh thing where he can name every opponent. I agree with defense. And you know, every coach should know that I contend that. There are a lot of coaches, especially old school guys that sort of basically have the overview, and no, but they can't rattle off Dame's in history. Was very brief history kinks. He's he's been doing it. A long mentioned it came exit. Did I if he didn't have anything specific you said he's been doing it a long time. But you know, it was like forty five seconds. I could've played that without editing. It. Yeah. I mean, listen, I think he's a great coach. But there was nothing earth-shattering weekend. There's a business. There are a lot of unqualified lazy people who continue to hang around and war right name. So I think there are a lot of coaches credit like Waddell says for knowing the okay, I'll go with that. But the photographic memory and being able to recall plays from two three years ago. Yeah. Exceptional. I is fantastic. Yeah. I've got a stat that may blow your mind, and it's about your favorite my mind. It's coming up next. We're with marquee. It's the weekend and waddled tell us about northwest. I'd love to don't miss your chance to watch. Northwestern..

"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.

"The forecast from the WGN Chicago weather center rest of the overnight mostly clear with a low around fifty six temperatures around the area sixty seven at O'Hare and midway sixty eight in Glen ellyn, sixty four along the lakefront Lake Michigan water chapter at seventy two wins out of the east Easter ten. I'm Roger badesch WGN newsroom ready to join the conversation. Whenever a story changes on Chicago's very own seven twenty WGN. Here's Jordan Howard. The bears. Seven twenty WGN, OB Kaz. We are presented by your Chicagoland was Indiana Chevy dealers a chevydriveschicago dot com bears. The cardinals sixteen fourteen the bears are two and one in first place in the NFC north first place in the NFC north. 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.
