"That has changed Jimmy. Yeah hundred percent. Yeah, so it's it's. It's a win for everybody except for trump, apparently All right. The last one I here is Lamar. Jackson was on a bigger contract than Patrick Mahomes did today and I know you guys feel like with time. It's just a fact he has to. Because that's the way things go. The contract skipping are bigger, but do you think someone will actually get a bigger contract than this case mark? Jackson Fowler Nouvelle Jordan Foul I. Don't see any way that happens. Wow, even with even with the inflation and everything. Not Not not not depend mahomes as level I. Don't think so he because he I think. He signed the biggest contract in sports history as he beat out Mike Trout. So. I don't think there's any way that Lamar just because Lamar runner. Right like no one's GonNa sign him to a twelve year contract with a pretty good arm, but it's not. A. Play, until you're thirty six arm, right, it's it's just probably not going to happen. He may get you know two hundred million over six years or something like that, but he's not going to get four hundred eighty million dollars at at one time right I. Don't see that happening I mean the next guy who can maybe get it. Is Trevor Lawrence right if if he's as good as everyone thinks he could be? Maybe he gets more but I. Don't think Mark Jackson going to get more. Data Gotcha. Think I honestly think Lamar might end up having a career trajectory similar with Cam. Do Experience I'm hoping this case. In in regards to. How are it's viewed by the NFL? It's unfortunately not the same. That being said. Hat mahomes is deal is GONNA be largest because no one's getting ten years after this is not going to happen. I mean for a team to invest quarterback for ten years. That statement is insane. So! Do I think that somebody's going to be that? Confident a player? I just did. That's top one. I mean obviously like people are super excited about Trevor Lawrence. There's always that oscillated. The next few now comes out indefinitely can happen, but that being said like this is this isn't anomaly. Because of how many years it is not necessarily on money furrier, especially when you go down the line like there will come a time. Eight years down. The road were at owns is not highest quarterback back in the NFL. Gotcha and so like even to piggyback. That is two guys that maybe could at least from perspective is you look at what you guys think to Shawn? Watson is going to get, and then the other guy is calum Murray is what is his contract on a look like it's? He may be on that same trajectory by Watson. I don't know what he's going to get, but you know same drafter given production different team everything, but he's not getting even probably two hundred million, but I guess we'll see what you guys thing. I think I think Lamar's GonNa get it and I think that this is going to be the new. Structure of an NFL elite quarterback contracts, and I also would say that I I registered a little bit about this, and it sounds to me like towards the back end of that ten year span there were. A lot of like options like we we. We might not guarantee you this money, and in that case you have the right to do this, so I'm not sure it's like a hard ten years. It's interesting. It's interesting to see the way contracts devolve. Emmy is very obvious, isn't it? Continued to change, continue to get different and bigger and more drastic and. You know, and you know rightfully so man these guys every penny they can get, so we'll see I'm more worried about football plant being happened happening and happening this year so. I'll take whatever happens happens all right so that's for Fowler novell we do usually do closing with show. Intel has any PODCAST products music books? Philosophies advice anything that they want to share today Josh. Adam do either one. If you have anything, yeah, totally. Off No I I definitely do only because it randomly came up in conversation right before the podcast, and it's a callback to something that used to be a big fan of, but if Josh Newell. Don't know there's probably a lot of other people out there who don't as well. If you're a fan of sketch comedy at all. There was a sketch comedy group who had a TV series on IFC for five years called the whitest kids you know, and personally they're my favorite sketch comedy group, and almost all of their sketches can be found on youtube inner easily. Found and they're fantastic I enjoyed it. It was super nostalgic for makes college years, but yet a there's tons of players flips out there, and if you've never checked it out, I recommend. Nice Josh Jimmy thing. You know I might have brought this up before like it's mentioned in more than once that there's a an APP that I think it's pretty popular APP. It's calm, c. a. l.. And I use that quite a bit, and I really liked like I feel like it has improved quality of life. So, what does it do? I know he's talked about this before. That's hilarious that you don't remember it. I think it's awesome that you're bringing up again. Does it really does show these reducing really? I remember him I remember him bringing up a running out, but I don't remember. Maybe I'm this remembering, but I could've sworn. You brought it up for nonetheless go ahead. I use it for like guided meditation, and they're pretty quick usually like ten minutes. Nice I enjoyed. What if what if someone's never done meditation ever? Buy, that would be perfect perfect shelia. Try that out. Try that Oh, yeah, I've tried it. It's actually good it if you can embrace it like releasing into those thoughts it's. It's really good I've tried it before. You tried it, so you haven't stuck with Jordan. Couldn't couldn't stick with it, but it is good, though if you're like struggling to think about things or take a moment or whatever it is, it is really good for people and I've heard a lot of good things about it. Gotcha Gotcha. We won't let you knock it too much now. Give Josh some positive some point at some point. I've been all over them. You came on here with that intention..
Freshwater Mussels Are Dying And No One Knows Why
"TALKING FRESHWATER MUSSELS. And the fact that they're dying off. Where should we start so I actually want to take you to South West Virginia right near the border with Tennessee? Mattie put on your waiters done okay because we're about to get into the waters of the clinch river so the clinch river flows at the feet of the southern Appalachian Mountains. The water is cold very clear and that is good news because freshwater mussels live on the bottom of rivers. They're kind of like sorta like the less edible version of their saltwater cousin they don't get the same love but they bury themselves in the sediment and among the rocks on the bottoms of rivers and I went out to find some of these muscles with Jordan Richard a biologist with the US fish and wildlife service who is obsessed with freshwater mussels and it did not take him long waiting out into the water for him to find what he did not want to see how long this is a matter of like. How long does it take until we see something that died very recently won? Shell was just laying there even say it's not buried. That's its footing Jordan. There he'd reached into the water and pulled out that muscle a pheasant shell. That's the species but should be buried in food. Not that's dead and this show is about the size of his palm. It's this beautiful. Golden Brown color But the Muslim side is usually a smooth. Pink is turning Greyish Brown and frayed around Sedgwick's Basically it's rotting in place. I saw that one took a few steps out and by the time I stopped right there at like five expecting not a good way which I'm pretty I'm pretty used to like coming out of your thing and I'm GonNa see just getting completely like bombed with the muscles but it's obsolete lousy you out there finding like dead muscle after dead muscle. Yeah I mean they were everywhere and you heard Jordan say but this is really not what he was expecting. It was not the time of year that they typically see a bunch of mortality You know he was just being nice and taking a reporter but biologists have been going at different sections of the clinch river since it was first noted in two thousand sixteen and in just one section of that river the US Fish and Wildlife Service estimates that the number of pheasant shell muscles that have died is in the hundreds of thousands knee. It sounded like I don't know just hearing his voice on the tape that he was super upset. Yeah I mean he was on the verge of tears when we were talking and then he tried to apologize about later. Which I didn't think was obviously not necessary but it was upset because he's so frustrated by what's happening they don't know what's causing this and there's this kind of feeling of helplessness. This guy is so passionate about freshwater ego systems. It's his entire life. I mean he actually said that he had three fish tanks house one by his bed one by the foot of his bed and one in the living room so yeah very understanding wife. Okay but let's talk a little bit more about why people are trying so hard to save these muscles. They play a really important role in freshwater ecosystems. Right totally so. They don't often get the attention they deserve. Here's someone who knows that all too well. People don't tend to get quite as excited about things that lack burns. Unfortunately that was emily blevins. She's a conservation biologist with Versi Society for Invertebrate Conservation. Which you know besides having a really cool name is a nonprofit that focuses on some of the world's more under loved Chrisny. I'LL SAY AT ONCE. I'LL SAY THOUSAND TIMES INVERTEBRATES. Don't get enough credit. I know I mean I think as vertebrates are a little biased but these muscles do deserve a ton of credit. There are filter feeders so that means that they filter water through them. While they're down they're just chilling on River Bottoms. There's research that shown they can remove pharmaceuticals from the water and pesticides and flame retardants and they remove E. coli from the water. They're like our little water filters exactly so a few of the biologists. I talked to really did say you can think of them. As nature's equivalent to a BRITTA filter cleaning up the water that we drink implant but they all sorts of cool stuff like reducing the size and impacts of dead zones. Those big nasty you know fishing life killing phenomena to keep occurring in the Gulf. They do that by filtering out. Sediment and agricultural runoff They sequester carbon phosphorus heavy metals in their shells. They reduce fecal bacteria from water. And you know like what's not to love about Madonna got it thank God. A single freshwater. Mussel can filter more than fifteen gallons of water in a day and besides that they provide habitat to tons of other species. One biologist described them as like the fresh water equivalent to a coral reef. So these muscles are clearly out here doing a lot of work. We don't have any idea what's causing these die-offs so no I mean we have some hunches but you know Jordan. The biologists set it could be a million different things that is causing this There's a bunch of folks working on this from around. The country. University was constant is doing a lot of work and they've recently identified a virus and bacteria that they say are statistically associated with the dial keywords being you know statistically associated so not enough to say hey dingaling we found it but they're highly suspicious of a pathogenic cause and that is where their research is focused right now. What about the stuff like we? Humans are doing on climate. Change for example. Does that seem to be a contributor at all? Well I mean there's no doubt. The climate change is stressing river ecosystems as it is just about every system everywhere but it does not seem to be the driver of what's going on here as far as scientists can tell But I think it's important to note that there are other human components it sort of brought us to this place as I mentioned freshwater mussels or already on the brink and that is because of human activity fun fact before the Aplastic Freshwater Mussels were actually collected in cultivated by the millions to satisfy a commercial demand for buttons. Their shells were pearly white inside right. Thanks for Buttons Fresh Harman's But even more damaging was just you know the general destruction that was brought along by Human Development. So there was pollution from coal mining in the southern Appalachia Rivers dammed for power streams diverted for agriculture wetlands pay for housing and all of those things have brought freshwater mussels to the point where a mysterious die off can happen and it becomes so crucial to find out why fast because there's so little wiggle room left in the system all right eight. Your bumming me out. What's the plan? So there is a contingency plan all right and there always needs to be a contingency plan But like most contingency plans. It's one that nobody wants to use in this case it's a hatchery or nursery more or less for freshwater mussels one of our living screams So pheasant shells in here. That's the one that really dial so basically this place is like a last line of defense for some of these species they're going to breed them in captivity so at least they're not totally gone from planet earth. Exactly so tim and the other. Biologists are reproducing muscles. Here keeping them safe until they're mature enough to be brought back into the wild they're basically stock and when the recent die off started on the clinch river. They brought a bunch of muscles here from part of the river that wasn't affected And those muscles could not just be used as stock but they could also use a baseline a healthy sample to us as they search for the die-offs 'cause Worst case scenario they have to take some of those muscles and try to repopulate parts of the Clinch River. Where the muscles of Dino are going to stand idly by watching the way we're GonNa do the best we can to help them produce progeny. So of the species isn't going for Jordan Richard. The biologist remitted beginning also is helping with this effort and he says it you know he knows. That muscles aren't as photogenic as a rhinoceros or polar bears but freshwater mussels are crucial to the health of other species. So if they go. We're going to have a lot of problems is not sexy to care about the foundation of Your House and you could renovate your kitchen but he says if that foundation is crumbling and you ignore it by the time you notice a problem because you fall through the floor. It's too late to do anything about it. And then everything else including your fancy. New Kitchen is going to fall through to
Nature's 'Brita Filter' Is Dying And Nobody Knows Why
"We take certain parts of the natural world for granted right trees cleaning the air worms enriching soil bees pollinating crops but increasingly eating late. These natural systems that we rely on our failing. They're under attack from Climate Change Human Development and disease impairs Nathan. Rod Has the story of one critical all species. That's dying and the team racing to find out. Why slip into your waiters and slosh out into the knee? Deep waters of the clinch rip and South West Virginia agent the clinched lows at the feet of the age rounded southern Appalachian Mountain slowly descending towards Tennessee. It's water is sharp cold engine engine clear which is good because what we're looking for lives on the rock crusted river bottom on long and it's just a matter of like how long does a until we we see. Something died very recently. That is Jordan Richard A biologist with the US fish and Wildlife Service and. It doesn't take him long to find what he does is not one to see that one leads the peasants. Shell is just laying there even say it's not buried too. That's what should be buried in. But he pulls a palm sized object from the water. Not that's dead. Richard is holding a freshwater Mussel Less edible diversion of its saltwater. Cousin that lines river bottoms across the country cleaning water and providing habitat to other species. It show is Gold Brown and glistening but the milky white muscle inside is turning a gray brown at its edges the color of decay. Biologists Rose Apple log brings over another muscle in similar condition. That smell alley. Yeah it's real real bad. So that's been dead maybe couple days tier two they find another dead muscle and another by the time I stopped at five and then more after that it standing mid river a bit later Richard Lifts his gaze from the water and looks upstream seemingly nothing in particular expecting. It's not a good way which I'm pretty used to. I'm pretty used to like coming out of your thing. I'm going to see just getting completely the bomb with the muscles but the US Fish and Wildlife Service estimates mates that hundreds of thousands of freshwater mussels have perished since the day off was I noticed in two thousand sixteen. Biologists and fishermen were finding finding fresh dead muscles week after week after week and not just here unexplained freshwater Mussel die-offs have since been documented in Oregon Washington Jason Wisconsin and Michigan. There's even been one in Spain and says a major concern for the future and for the future health of freshwater. Emily Blevins is a conservation. Biologist with Desert See Society for Invertebrate Conservation a nonprofit that focuses on some of the world's more let's say under loved critters and people belong to get quite as excited about but lack backbones unfortunately but many of those species are critically important to the natural world take freshwater mussels their filter feeders that remove algae sediment and heavy metals from passing water. There's research that's shown they can remove pharmaceuticals from the water and pesticides songs and flame retardants and remove E. coli from the water so think of them as nature's equivalent to Britta filter cleaning the water. We drink while also so providing suitable habitat to countless other species. The problem is freshwater. Mussels are also one of the most imperilled species on the planet dozens of muscle types have already gone extinct in north. America wiped out by Water Pollution Human Development and habitat loss. The current die off is just one more threat widespread and fast moving. And it's 'cause Richard The biologist says that's the challenge it could be a million things but because of limited time hi and resources we've had pick and choose what we think is the most likely things and start running them down and it takes years worth of effort a team at the University of Wisconsin. That's working with Richard and blevins has detected a virus and a bacteria that are statistically associated with the die off but they're not willing to call either the culprit it just yet climate change stressing ecosystems and threatening species around the world but it does not seem to be the driver here so with the clock. Ticking and cause is unknown. The team in Virginia has something of a contingency plan. A hatchery. Nursery more or less per freshwater mussels is one of our live live in screamed so pheasant. Shell is in here. That's the one that really dial Tim Lane is a muscle recovery coordinator with the Virginia Department of game and Inland Fisheries. He's walking through. What's essentially along shit mind with? PVC pipes trump's and dozens of shallow black buckets half filled with sand. These buckets are home to a WHO's who of endangered mussels species in here. Come away come. Show not to be confused with the endangered Cumberland monkey-face keep pace nearby over here. We have golden shell over here fifty. That's more than probably a wild that we haven't put out there. This facility ability is a last line of defense for some freshwater mussels species lane another. Biologists are reproducing them here and then keeping them safe until they're mature enough to to be brought back into the wild when the recent diop's started on the clinch they brought a bunch of pheasants shells here from an unaffected part of the river. The muscles could be used as a baseline a healthy sample to us as they search for the Diop's 'cause but in a worst case. Scenario with diaw continues unabated. They could also be used as stock going to stand idly by washing away. We're GONNA do the best we can. To help them produce progeny. So the species isn't going through inside the hatcheries attorney's office away from the troughs pumps lane and Richard say they know muscles aren't as photogenic as a rhinoceros or as easy to communicate as the plight apply to the polar bear but Richard says freshwater mussels and many other lesser known species are like the foundation of a house that everything lives in is not awesome to care about the foundation of your house. You could renovate your kitchen but if that foundation is crumbling and you ignore it by the time you notice a problem because you fall through the floor. It's too late to do anything about it.

"jordan richards" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"He's a big tall kid a little bit. Like Trent Murphy from a size perspective. And we'll see if he Henry Anderson. Yeah. Yeah. To get comparison. Can he as he made enough strides in the technique to become a good consistent player? We'll be the question. One of those previous safety studs, by the way back in town. Jordan Richards now at the raiders alright. Guys, throw this out to you. Because I've been wondering Todd you've been probably both of you guys have been more practices than I have defenses such a note emotional unit and Stanford. It has had leaders leaves between the hashes Ohka Ricky sort of stepped up last year healthier as well. They were they were playmakers, but you mentioned the safety. I mean. You know, read. Safety, and you mentioned rentals, Jordan Richardson, and those guys that were that were later they kind of got everybody else up. And I know is there is there a spiritual leader on this defense. Is there somebody that's going to be you know, upset when successive chunk laser are given up. I mean, I I'm for watching out here and trying to formulate my own views. I'm not sure it's been determined yet. You have thoughts on that leadership on that defense. I think it's been Casey to hill as the guy the fifth year senior who has played a lot who is a playmaker. I think they recognized talent. I think they do look to a depot recognize what he can do. He's not necessarily a vocal guy. But he is when he needs to be they looked to him to lead that I think that's a question. Mark the coaches have to who can be in their consistently who it has been. Okay, reiki. I think is the guy, but but can there be a playmaker on that defensive side who steps up when they need it? I think outside of two hill and deebo we'll find out who else. Can step up as a big play down the middle. The young tight end out of passing John Bosco cow mccombs. Yes, indeed. That was gonna come up the over under on that three. We're on pace and to John's point, you know, what I think this defense could really use is another guy like Ronnie hairs. Not the big the fastest. But that guy was the enemy of a leader. Right. Players respond to that. And and who is going to be that guy on the defensive side of the boss. That's that's a great question. One of many obviously heading into the season could be that could be that guy. I mean, we we just don't know there's some young guys we have had conversations with all these guys. So it's hard to tell who's got that charisma personality that you need in that sort of role K, we'll take another break here as the players are doing the same. They are hydrating. And perhaps when we come back. We'll see some live scrimmage football. So that's next year.

"Warning when you're about to run out of time. Okay. Okay. All right on you have sixty seconds to make your case that Sark indeed was when the big issues with offense this year. There's a reason why started bud is on fire the Hodzi right now. And that's because he is the main issue with the offense. Matt Ryan is having one of his career seasons. But I would argue that that's because of his own brilliance and Julio Jones is leading the league in receiving yards. I would argue that that's because of his own brilliance to the truth is Steve Sarkissian play calls have been very bland. They've been very vanilla. I still remember that game against the Philadelphia Eagles when everyone was completely healthy in Iran. The same exact of verts play. Call four times in a row with the game on the line. I still remember that fourth goal against the Cleveland Browns when he lined Matt Ryan up in the shotgun instead of going with the QB sneak wash weizer is held his own as a a replacement guard. Jake Matthews husband pro bowler offense of line has been great. But Steve are fusion downtown. He deserves a lot of his own blame. Because his play calling has not been though this year. I've. Excellent job on. All right, Eric, you have thirty seconds to make your rebuttal. Go is kind of hard to say that you know, his play calling has been mediocre at best. I mean is is hard to call plays in device games. When you're off of line is not blocking. And you run game is not producing at all again is easy for for defense to to to focus on things like that. So I mean, I love to see the route concepts being changed. But again, he's working with not a lot of favorable circumstances here. All right on you have thirty seconds of your final rebuttal, go. I see it as when our offense of line was healthy in the first few weeks. I still remember at their healthiest. They only put up twelve points against Philadelphia who had no linebackers. They put up seventeen against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Pittsburgh when everyone was relatively healthy. And I think the sample sizes. They're that Steve Sarkissian has not done the job. When all when everything was in place. All right. Excellent job both guys under the clock as opposed to David Matt who had no concept of time apparently couple of weeks ago. Cudi of you want me to start? You want me to go? Now, you want me to go. Now. Those those are great great list. Oh, yeah. I'm pretty sure they were both drinking pretty heavily. As was I as was I get on a call with Matt chambers. Anyhow, moving so focusing again number second topic for night is going to stay around these coordinators, and that's for good reason. Guys, if you go to the falcons dot com, you can read Oliver articles about the falcons, but some of the stuff you're going to see is the speculation that both the offensive and the defensive coordinator is could be replaced in the off season by the falcons. And of course, we've talked about Seve Sirkin the other name that is on the minds of Alkan fans is defensive coordinator Marquand Manuel the defense has been abysmal this year. They are bottom five unit yet again, they have given up on multiple occasions over thirty points per game. They are one of the worst typically ranked defenses in the league. Emmanuel obviously is on the hot seat as well. So odd Mon. You will go first with this one in your saying here that Marquand Manuel is not the main issue with the defense. You have one minute to make your case, sir. Go, of course, Marquand manual isn't the issue with the defenses defense, which is lost all of its stars. In the first three weeks of the season. The truth is the falcons defense was ninth in total defense Nathan scoring defense last season giving up less than twenty points per game under Mark Waugh manual. They shut down the number one Rams defense number on offense all of the playmakers. Dion Jones, gone Neil Ricardo L in God hurt within the first three weeks Grady Jarrett missed two games tack McKinley. Missed the two games. Keith Jordan Richards, excuse me, starting strong safety which is abysmal hybrid of Bill Belichick. Dick lebeau in Buddy, Ryan could not fix this defense, which has key players, like, big Beasley Duke Riley congratulating saints players for their success..

"I feel like I'm like, let's give a kid a shoddy just started, but you're right. He has played a lot of football. He's played a lot more football than Sam darnold who I'm hiring. Is that crazy? I mean, just kind of wrap up this game. SAM's been inconsistent as well. I think he's in a much worse situation. I mean, in the last game he struggled. They didn't have a noon wa. I don't know if it's below Powell. Just got IRA to which is going to hurt a lot. I, I don't know though I kinda high on him last week. I, that he had shown me a couple of things against. Some some pretty bad defenses, but the jets defense is actually quite good in my opinion. So I don't know. Let me ask you this before to route this up. If you had to choose between Trubisky darnold at this point, would you go with. Don't use darnold just because right off the bat, you know, Donald has while he he's had some pretty bad games. I mean, last week is horrible game that great. You seen him put together games like where you think, okay, you know, we just give this time. This is a really, really young quarterback prospect made it. He's he's still only twenty one right. Even that has to give you some confidence like you've had, you've seen the good performances from such a young guy in business already. Twenty four. He's played in eighteen games in twenty touchdown passes. That's not very impressive in today's NFL issues, you know, I, I don't really know what the long-term upside is what you're Bisky, but with Arnold you've already seen them put together, complete games. It's just more in the do it versus some of the tougher defensively NFL I. So in lieu of the Thursday night Dame in lieu of, I know you guys want us to talk about patriots bills. I know everybody is extremely curious about that matchup but I'm going to skip it because we've got the biggest falcons fan. I know here I don't know that many falcons fans, but you are one of them. And I, I guess, I, you know, I can't do Jay Cutler voice, but I'm gonna try. Phuket's versus themselves. Segment. I'm sorry. I'm so good at impersonations. Thank you. I appreciate it. Look, falcons, eights. Eights. They're so injured that it's kinda hard to even talk about them like a real team or evaluate them if that makes sense on defense, obviously not on offense. So I wanna ask goes without saying that the season has been disappointing and before the season, I think we thought that I don't wanna say they would be a Super Bowl contender, but they were certainly in the mix in the NFC. Do you attribute all of this to injuries, or do you think it goes beyond that. Oh, I think on defense, a lot of it can be attributed injuries. I mean, losing Dion, Joan, Kiana, Neil, Ricardo alad, Neil an hour after the season. I think Jones probably the probably back like we hang or eleven. I. But the drop off, I think the biggest issues they didn't have much death behind them out side of the month. The keys has been great filling in for Ricardo, Alan at free safety. I mean, the drop off from Kennedy, Neil to Jordan Richards that then. I mean, really hard to watch just going from shirt tackler straw. Yeah, really bad. It's like Tian Neal was one of the best strong faces in the league in my opinion, just in terms of being a force of wrestling plaza playing against tight ends that aren't named Travis. Kelsey. I e he's been pretty great and never guard over the past years. And then you just get Jordan Richards who can't really do either that in gets run over consistently and doesn't make the right place and space and can't really tackle the soul. So those issues have read their head and also the drop Jones. Duke Riley has been a tremendous well, they've kinda or at least worth the giants. They kind of Rabl to fill the gap a little bit with Bruce Carter and they're six round rookie foyer, we will Kuhn. So vast kinda helped. But outside of those injuries that the biggest issue on the falcons defenses, then the regression of easily over the past years..

"Obviously it'll make it a lot harder to get things done. But the falcons, they're really stacked with talent on offense. I mean, it's kind of absurd. When you think about you having the luxury of guys like Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley and the way that cinemas played the season, you know, having all three of those receivers depth chart is it's an embarrassment of riches and Hooper really has come along. So I think that he'll see more targets. You've got to backs who both are capable receivers and Smith and Coleman. And then you know, we've seen guys like Russell Gaijin, Marvin hall stepping up making plays. So I feel much better about the next man up philosophy on offense because they just have so much talent. You know, the, I will say that with Ridley out and sununu out yet still fully on the field. It's not like when you're throwing Jordan Richards out there and stead of actual talented players. And so I think that the offense should. Be okay, and they've played exceptionally well at home. I mean, that's there's been a stark difference. The two games that have been terrible, have both been in Pennsylvania, and I say, boycott that bullshit state because obviously. Never play there. Again, Philadelphia was a shit show and so was Pittsburgh. So I say, we're never going back there. These are the roles, but they're at home and the friendly confines of the Mercedes Benz. And so I think that the offense will be okay without them, especially against the giants and eminently beatable team. I think when we look at what are wide receivers are going up against. So the newer giants are one in five on the season. They are not a great team in their secondary. They've got a generous Jenkins who at times has been a very capable of corner, but his not than having a good season so far and still even in at his best. I don't think he's someone you matched up when I'm one with Julio, and then on the other side is Eli, apple who is again from vehicle state university as Gina. I cut you off on that one. Look, you guys are you guys are doing all the of noxious things I usually do for me, but I can see him like a reasonable person on this podcast. That's really appreciate it. Gina in he'll apple his, you know, he was a first round pick for the giants. Arguably has not quite lived up to that draft billing just yet corner is a difficult position to transition to the NFL, but neither of those guys are guys that can single-handedly shutdown Julio. So to your point, Jana of you've regardless, he's still have Julio on the field going up against a secondary. That's, you know, struggled this year, and I would say Hooper has some really good matchups against these linebackers for the giants. We'll give into this a little bit. Black, I think even if you're missing, one of Sydney were Ridley. It still feels like there are good matchups you could take advantage of, let's just hope. I hope that one of the two of them can play if not, both, obviously, the the more of your best players you can have field. The better that said Ryan showed a couple years ago that he is more than capable of spreading ball around getting guys like Marvin hall involved in the offense. If it comes to that. So I I do believe that against a giants defense that has struggled in the passing game. There are still plenty of opportunities to be had. So that said, I did a little bit of research this week for the upcoming game, particularly the falcons offense going up against this giants defense, the giants. They have some talented players in Landon Collins is one of the better young safeties in the league. Harrison in the middle of defense, Damon Harrison is an absolute freak at nose tackle. He could single handedly shutdown the running game by himself, alleviate Vernon. As long as he plays is he's a little banged up a ribbon juries, sweet if he plays. He's a great pass rusher. But past that this joyous defense really has has been hit or miss..

"Brady is that they continue the dynasty while missing in one of the most important offseason events in all of sports and the patriots aren't outlier i think people have to accept that and you you said it perfectly they're having the greatest coach in greatest quarterback of all time allows you to miss it really does and it allows you to drop guys like cyrus jones in the second round in two thousand sixteen or to completely take guys that we would say are more like sub package players like remember they took jordan richards in the second round out of stanford yeah i don't know that he's actually played a snap and like they took gino gresham in the third round in two thousand fifteen out oklahoma as done anything but then they get trey flowers and it's like well damn that guys actually really good and you you pick him up in the fourth round so you're right it's like the bella check is really good at hit and when he hits it's huge but there are a lot of mrs man you can go to the draft history dot com and pull up the patriots drafts and you're going to see a lot more misses than hits i would say even compared to just a normal team but bella checks such a good coach and he's great at the low key free agent signing and brady's the best quarterback of all time so it it makes everything look pretty easy when you have those to work for you without a doubt and i think they i think they kinda hit a slam dunk this year with isaiah win at twenty three so maybe they start to reverse the trend when you have to because the window is tightening i mean you could never say that with belgium because the coach but the brady windows you know let's be realistic it's on the three year plan right now so you need the incident pack is and they went out and did that with win sony michelle back to back so it's just a fascinating like you said matt they're fascinating for us in the draft world because they are the.

"Fence when he plays on defense bad things happen it happened in the opener though bell check had him out there in sort of a hybrid linebacker role against chiefs he couldn't do the job they ran all over it they put up big plays and they won the game well this is a similar eagles chiefs offense doug peterson coming from india read when i saw jordan richards out there to start the game or or early on in that game i didn't like it i thought that was immediately over thinking in a wrinkle that wasn't going to work so that was my first glue but the bigger cluele would be the inability to tackle the inability to covering the off the field on third down and that's what all the players talked about post game whether it was doron harmon devin mccourty you know they couldn't get off the field they couldn't make a play when they needed to and late in the game he goes did make the play they needed to to swing the momentum and change the game chatting with any hard patriots dot com radio india last one for me out the offseasons officially underway what are the main priorities for the patriots moving forward finding certainly the first will be the coaching staff settling this in um so josni daniels is back we're now assuming bill bellichik is back tom brady's back okay offensively you have some continuity i still have questions about dante scar nekia seventy year old offensive line coach and ivan's here's the running backs coach both in my opinion could decide to retired anytime i'm still waiting to see what they decide to do and then defensively does brian florida's just get promoted to two defensive coordinator is he going to call the plays on defense linebackers coach who actually interviewed for head coaching job this off season you know there was some rumors talk of greg xiang auto coming in he's decide to stay at ohio state so i think first and foremost you need to figure out the coaching staff and that continuity before you begin all the the draft process and then i think you go to rob drunk housekey i mean if this is a legitimate issue.

"Then embarrassing performance by the patriots entire defense especially their secondary i believe that was devin mccourty court are you got burnt on that play they pro football focus head a tweet at halftime that they have missed more tackles in the first half than any game they played since two thousand six when they started tracking miss tackles it was just an awfully coached game i thought they'd hatreds were disappointing in their lack of fundamentals all around that's why i do want to hear more and more about the malcolm butler situation because when whether or not he whatever he did your ticketing hint to start this game and suddenly the other players say after that it was not the plan for him not to beyond their that pros things out of the loop and suddenly one of us vanished today in wasn't doing the show in wasn't doing their job it's like a kind of changes the whole afternoon the biggest compliment i can give the eagles is that there are so well coach that by the time you get to the end of this season with nick full center center this drive encapsulated that they looked no different to me they went carson winds was the quarterback that's good coaching in in i don't know if some of it was coaching certainly i think eric row for instance ended up playing pretty well patrick cheung goes out with an injury in her crowded now a really good second half i do the first half matters right he got picked on i think overall he he made plays in jeffrey made a couple of plays against him too but batum oh see in jordan richards in you had certain matchup like marquees flowers on cory clement and different matchups at the eagle's offense was able to orchestrate was a great job by the coaches but to me it comes down to players we talk about coaches so much those miss tackles are kind of on the patriots players in a lot of these plays as much as the match up was great falls on that drive was so gray and especially that fourthdown play i really stands out to me i think that it's gotten overlooked just in the immediate aftermath that took a lot of guts they went for fourth into at their own 45 with five fifty orleans more onion maybe.

"Quarter touched on in the first quarter of a super bowl and i don't think that you can take a a team in 2017 seventeen and compared to its in the two thousand one but there is a pattern here with the pictures of never got out to a hot start in the super bowl and that might need to change a little bit in this game yeah absolutely possible in their team of course we know they wanna almost always defer if they win the toss so uh they are going to be teen it's probably gonna get the ball a little more frequently in the second half but absolutely they've got enough soast arts even even thinking about them on a on a trap i try basis and of course last year a classic example of that in terms of the patriots coverage responsibilities in this game you'd figure look at the eagle's offense look at their weapons the biggest threat is probably zachert s uh how do you how do you think the patriots are going to cover urged will uncover philadelphia's receivers in general in this game keep your question i am i'm all aboard drive aimed at the patrick cheung bandwagon i think that no i think it he's the answer in the patriots defense for is accurate say matchup in 2015 in patrick cheung did do a really good job against him or it's only had two catches for nine yards in that game we did have a touchdown but that was ball going up against devin mccourty so patrick drunk throughout the years has kind has been a tight end killer and cove in noise even straight upset at the someone asked him today during the availability howery i was gonna handle that growth and you're basically like yeah petra turns out that covered and obviously is it's it's that's simplifying the matter just to say the chung we'll go out there because trump a lot of things in defense he might be all sought receiver at one point you might be different guide and let the entree burton so i think that if it's not shown on earth and they might try to double him with probably you know all linebacker and devin mccourty whiz with mccourty and doron harm in with jordan richards and mccourty but for the most part i do expect to see chung lined up against or it's i think that you know.
