"They're going to be there already so versatile the chief's offense, and I think it's even scarier with Libyan Bell, especially if he's healthy and energized. To be the bell we saw at the Pittsburgh Steelers in Denver coming off that great win. I think it's exactly what Vic Fangio needed against the New England Patriots. But I think I don't I don't think I know it's much tougher. I mean, now you have Patrick Mahomes on offensive shaman who played who came off a big win in a big matchup against Buffalo. In the Kansas City Chiefs are right where they want to be. But at least the Broncos have a nice feeling for a week, beating the Patriots. Now the Buffalo Bills did just that. They still lost the game to Kansas City on Monday, and now it's two in a row. They've kind of fallen down to Earth a little bit now, with their offense struggling. I guess the tonic for this is to take on the New York Jets, and that's what they'll be doing this week. The Jets, still the only winless team in the NFL at O N. Six. What are you seeing out of Buffalo right now, And is it something that needs to be fixed? Or is this just a little? I think it's a little bit of law that points in tough teams. We can say he's a good football team. That was a back and forth game early, and I think The bills. Really, I think offensively Look Josh Allen. Still, you obviously young player improving greatly. But you know, didn't have Ah, great game to say just very bluntly. He was very inaccurate. He missed some opportunities and he hits and he was hitting those opportunity Scott early in the year. And so when you miss plays that air there against really good teams. It's really hard to win, so I wouldn't panic of the bills and I got the Jets coming in. You said. It's the perfect tonic. I wouldn't say it's the magical pill that makes everything feel better. Whatever you whatever you want to say about it. It's exactly what the doctors ordered after two straight losses point a windless Jets team. It's funny because apparently there is tonic in New York, and that's exactly what the Philadelphia Eagles needed is our week seven kicked off on Thursday night. The New York Giants had him down in the fourth quarter, but Philly came back scoring not once but twice to come back and take the game. One receiver to the right. Two to the left went shotgun steps up went rifles. Right corner..

"If you're going to win football games that matter late, you have to be able to rely on your secondary weapon in the offensive game plan. Maybe carry you once or twice. As opposed to say, Hey, it's Josh Allen or bust this entire season, so I agree. They don't need to run the ball. Mohr. They need to be more effective in the times that they do decide to run it. So you know, and I think, Teo, there's going to be games and they're going to come up here shortly. And maybe this game that I'm thinking about is the Seattle Seahawks, where I would Maura Less rather see the bills try to slow down the the You know potency of the Seattle Seahawks offense by not letting them run all over the bills, but rather having the offense control the game by being effective on the ground and running the football with with efficiency and with balance and for me at the end of the year. I'm sort of hoping the bill sort of end up at like 62 65% tto 40 to 35% running the football. I think that's a good balance for them that but there's going to be games and there should be games. Where the bills run more than they pass. The problem is, I don't think right now, if they were in that position where they had to run the ball more, then they passed it that they could do it effectively enough. Some continue moving the change and and score enough points to win. And I think for me, John, where does that maybe blame go because I think there's only three people or three things You can blame. You can start with Brian Table and Brian David shouldered some of that blame this week when he was talking with the media, saying he's needs to call better place that allows these running backs to get open on DH and some openings in some more efficiency in the run game. You could blame the offensive line who I think right now shoulders. A majority of the blame of why this running offense just has not been able to take off. Or you could blame the running backs and I think for me, I've been underwhelmed by Zach Moss. I was expecting him to be more explosive be more powerful and through the 1st 1st 3 games. I have really yet to see any of the traits that AA lot of the people that were excited about Zach Ma's coming in the league were touting. I just have not seen them yet, And obviously we know about Singletary. He just hasn't been the same player been able to take advantage of a lot of these run looks that the bills were getting, and that's the thing, John This bill's offense is getting a ton of advantageous run looks, and they just have yet to take advantage. You're everything is right. I'm the one who asked Brian table what needs to be done. And he was just yes, you said Simple and straight to the point. I need to call better play period and didn't say anything else, and I was like, Okay, clearly, you know, that's that's his thing. And Evan Singletary when asked about he said, Yeah. I agree. There probably are in play calls that need be better. But we all need be better Executing. I would evenly distribute the blame, I would say. There are moments that Devin Singletary and Zach Boss have not hit the hole that they're supposed to head and just not been as effective runners as we've seen are expected to be. The offensive line has not gotten the push. That we expected that they would get in the running game. And, yeah, Brian Table has made him curious play calls The curious times and things like that. It's just going to be curious because to your point At what point are they going to really sink their teeth in a game and lead on the running game to maybe try to work their way out of this? I don't know. I don't expect it this week. But, yeah, I mean, it's critical down the stretch that you are able to run the football if anything, just to run the clock out. If you have a lead in the fourth quarter in a tight game to extend from Dr here on at this point, I don't know why you would have faith that they could do that. Yeah, I totally agree. And you know for me, John, and we really haven't even broached this conversation. So this is a good opportunity to bring this up. I was surprised about the Quentin Spain. Move on. I wonder where where your thoughts are on. You know, we heard this week The Brendan being came out and basically said, Well, there wasn't one thing that caused this. We just decided to move on from a player to give him an opportunity to sign on elsewhere. But I don't know. I'm just not buying that because you don't move on from a guy that started 16 games for you. The year before, was considered one of your best offensive lineman for him to fall out of favor as quickly as he did this year. There's definitely something at play. I'm just wondering what you believe gave them the confidence they could move on from a guy like that in the interior. When you've got Brian Winters and Cody Ford playing at the level they are Especially when they don't have Cody Ford. Yeah, and and that's that's where the most surprising thing is, is with the timing of it it It's not surprising that they moved on. I actually thought that He was likely someone they would maybe try to trade similar to a Wyatt teller. And while wine cellar's been great now, you would think you'd be able to get the higher value for Quinton, Spain after he didn't allow it back all of last season, albeit I'm coming with a larger price tag. But, yeah, Cody Ford is hurt. Brian Winters has been dealing with things You don't know about Jon Feliciano status, at least for this Sunday's Now you're talking about..

"And once again is the GM. Jo got a lot of guys get one shot of this right? You get one shot at this and you gotta take chances and you got you want the chance to build it your own way before it's too late, And I think that's how Joe Douglas is going to operate here. Bleacher report's kind of Rogers here on the West, her hotline. So before I let you go, I did want to get some of your thoughts on, you know, obviously had the opportunity to see what this bill's offense has evolved into an week one. And it's not to say that my next remark is saying they've devolved over the last two weeks. I just think they've played good teams over the last two weeks where what is your assessment of where this bill's team is, in particular the offense and Josh Alan and I are you at all surprised to see the early success you've we've seen from Joshua. And I mean right now, his second league in passing yards, I think second in passing touchdowns, one of I think he's one of three quarterbacks to ever start the first four weeks of the year with, like, 1111 100 yards and 12 touchdowns like he's a guy that's still playing really, really well, even though it hasn't been as pretty over the last two weeks. Yeah, I am surprised. I'm a little surprised to see how comfortable he looks right. That's always been the problem with Josh on like, When is he going to do something stupid that you just simply didn't need to take the chance on I think for the most part, he looks very poised. He's looked very comfortable. I think the offense around him has definitely lives up to the hype. Right. They have the receiving talent. They have what might be the hottest name and the coordinator world Fall in Brian's able a guy that I'll tell you right now and enjoy. Um, because I've heard multiple teams. They're all ready. Have him at the top of their list for this coaching search this offseason. He's going to get his interviews. I've done a great job with the bills, and I think with Josh Allen specifically, it's great to see him get comfortable, right? I remember when he was coming out of the draft that year. I had him. I think like 42nd or something like that 40th and I was like, listen, and there were people that didn't want to evaluate him and quarterback. There are people that like I always did a three pic. And then there were people that thought he was a top five player. So I was somewhere right in the middle of this guy's all the tools in the world to be a really special player. But once again, things need to slow down for him. He's stopped playing hero ball. He needs to dialling back in a little bit, and he needs to go to a place where he could quite simply be developed and Fortunately, all of those things that happened. The guy works really hard. He's a great athlete there getting him involved in the run game. And I think you're going to see a lot of that against the Jets this weekend because they have not contains mobile quarterbacks very well this year. Especially with loss of Jamal Adams. They just look like a different team when trying to stop that. And I think for Alan, it's been a really, really good start to this year. And just a great sign for his development that hey, you know, we were questioning before the year can this guy Not lose games. The bills Now you're looking at him say, why can't he be a top 12 Top 10 quarterback in the league? All right, Connor Before I let you go. I wanted to get a quick story line outside of bills and jets, and I'm interested in your thoughts. I don't know if you and Ah, you if you've been talking about this or had talked about this in your podcast yet, but the two head coaches that have been fired, you know, Dan Quinn. And Bill O'Brien. Do you expect either of them to see a second opportunity at head coach? I mean, Dan Quinn was several plays away from a Superbowl Bill O'Brien say what you will. I mean, he did have some success when he wasn't asked to be a general manager and listen a cz Muchas Bill O'Brien. It is Bill O'Brien's fault that we saw sort of Team B. I would say like a playoff FC contender to where they are right now. Ah, lot of that is because of Bill Brian, but Bill O'Brien, But it's Bill O'Brien the G M. Maybe not the coach. So do you expect a bolo Brian to get a second opportunity somewhere where he can have an established general manager in place that he could just focus on doing what you know. I think he's fairly decent at which is, you know, running a team and doing offense, at least calling plays offensively or in the same with Dan Quinn, a guy who has basically been known for his defense but has not really been able to put it together in the years. He wasn't Atlanta. I don't think it will be this year. Now. The one thing about both of these guys is I actually think they would have interest from multiple colleges to come in and be head coaches. I think both of them Would have success at the college level. When you look at Bill O'Brien, he's somebody that I would, you know, obviously be willing. I think to go back into the recruiting process, roster management and being the CEO of that kind of organization. I think with Dan Quinn, you know, people are always going to make the ties back to Florida. Anything ever change there if anything ever opened up there But I think I look at Dan Clinton go. Hey, there's going to be a couple of teams that that might like his work as a defensive coordinator, and I know Atlanta defense has been a mess, but I think when you focus on Soli coaching in defense of his opportunities in the NFL at that level, but I just don't think there will be a lot of calls for either of them to get it. It's not going to be an Adam gay situation, which was still a awful one that you just go from one job into the next. Even though you failed at the previous one. I think we're going to see a couple of college guys get called. I think we're going to see Brian's able Greg Roman, Don Martin, Vail, Eric. Be enemy. Those were the coordinator names that don't get interviews and Arthur Smith from Tennessee. And well, your Arthur Smith has earned it, man. And I mean there was a lot of There was a lot of questions over the first five weeks of 2019 when he took over his play caller with Marcus Mariota, but holy cow. I mean, it just It also goes to show you right in Tennessee that your coordinator can be highlighted and and be considered a great coordinator. If he gets just At least average quarterback plan, and that's not that's not a knock against handle. I think he's playing better than average. I think you could make the argument. Tannehill has earned MVP talk. I think he has, and there's no doubt that he's going to get Arthur isn't going to get credit for the turnaround that we've seen a town house career, But I also think it's an indictment of what they had in Marcus Mariota for them hanging on as long as they did, but like it, just to me, it's just so shows you how important quarterback play is..

"Definitely excuse is that I think are are plausible for Baker Mayfield. He said. Four coaches in three years, he said at least three offenses he's been playing hurt the last couple of weeks. He got hammered. Against Pittsburgh last weekend. Yeah, Part of it is that he plays for the Browns. The Browns have a bad history with quarterbacks have a bad history in general over the last 20 years. Those are all legitimate. But with new quarterbacks This is still showing when you've had that many coaches when you've had that many problems. The schedule is going to be the most important thing. He's gone back to bad habits. He's gone back to playing nervous around teams that he knows he's supposed to be. That's not just any team over there. That's Pittsburgh. That's not just any team over there. That's Baltimore, and he knows that the national spotlights on him. He knows that Jim Nansen Tony Romo were in the booth last week. And it eats him up inside. He says he doesn't pay attention to the national media. I believe he tries all he wants, but he can't help it. He has to You are who you are, for better for worse. He's paying attention to it. Some of this no, I'm not going to say it's all his fault. I don't think they should have kept you Jackson after year, too. They probably should have put Baker Mayfield with a new general manager and a new head coach and started off in a new way. They went with Greg Williams for an interim head coaching spot. They put then Freddie Kitchens who's a glorified fan. In charge of that offense. Last year. It was an abomination. He looked over to the sidelines. He didn't trust the head coach. He didn't trust his teammates and the worst part about it even trust himself. He's a man who plays arrogantly. He has to trust himself, and you could see it on the field. When he doesn't it's sad. The schedule is the most important thing. There are other situations. Derek Carr Jared golf, They get different head coaches Jared Jared Goff having a renaissance right now. Derek Carr playing very, very well. Right now. There are situations where it doesn't work like that. But I look at Sam Darnold on the Jets thinking Well, you came in with a different head coach. They saddled you with this guy, and I don't look like you're very long for the Jets at all. Sean McDermott. Same coach, New quarterback Putting it together the right way taking care of each other. You could say hey, therefore into up in Buffalo and Josh Allen didn't look that good last week. You played against some pretty good opponents. They're good organization. It's a good coaching staff, and it looks like Josh on has a lot of town on that on that arm and has a lot of town in that body. At times, he's a wild stallion. Lamar Jackson taken out the back end of the first round. Well, we don't know what we want to make out of Lamar. Good coach. Good staff long standing together and you're seeing the fruits of the labor with Lamar Jackson. Josh Rosen, taken by terrible organization of that time with a terrible head coach didn't have a prayer. It matters. The way you raise a quarterback is still the same way you raise a child it matters. But now you've put Baker Mayfield in a position were every single one of these next 10 games is life and death for him if you lose any of them. Considering their schedules, one of the easiest in the NFL, you lose any of them. Everybody's gonna call for your head. You win any of them, with the exception of beating Pittsburgh and Tennessee in Baltimore, which are on that schedule. You don't get the credit.

Fresh "Josh allen's" from CBS Sports Radio
"Four games over 500, I'm rolling. Right now, so let's go with this week's NFL picks. He's crunch. The numbers. Used careful analysis and is now ready to lay down the dough. Here's Robin Lundberg with his gridiron pics of the week. You know, Sometimes you look at a number and you go is that to I and that's what I do with the bills minus 10.5 over the Jets. But when I see a number and I go, is that too high, I always have to self correct. And go well, it's that heifer and as much as in a division game with embarrassment after embarrassment, you think you know what? It's not going to get worse for the Jets. They're due for a close one. There. Do you know to be in one of these games and division games tend to take a identity of their own a mind of their own. Bills have been struggling to so this could be it. I have to go against those thoughts and go the opposite cause that never exist for a reason. I'll take the bills minus 10.5 over the Jets Jets are legitimately very bad, the worst team in the sport. And the Bills do need to course correct, right? And if you're going to course correct. What better way to do so then against the New York Jets, So instead of going in and saying that number's too high, and I'll leave with Jets against the Bills team that's not playing at their best. I'll go the other way and say This is a get right game for Josh Allen. And the Buffalo Bills and take the bills minus 10.5 over the Jets. I'll go with the chief minus seven half over the Broncos. If you're familiar with me, you've probably heard something similar to this before. In this segment. I almost always just pick the Chiefs. Regardless of what the number says, regardless of who they're playing. It's a rare week where the Chiefs are not amongst my picks. And if the chief there was that one game this year where they were actually underdogs, it was the Baltimore game and exit on these areas like, Well, if you're giving me points with the chief I'm taking him every single time. Dead. To be honest, you know? A number like that. 7.5 almost feels like giving the chief's points. They only have to win by a point more than a touchdown. I mean that half a point. There's a lot of work right there, right if it is a tight game, and they went by a touching and still lose. But.
Rested Bills melt down with mistakes in 42-16 loss to Titans
"Did you see this common? Did you see the titans rolling up a forty? Burger. On the bills who look they look like the team that had a cove nineteen nightmare with layoffs and close facilities and long stretches without play not the titans. I. Didn't see it coming. I mean I think that if you're someone that just observers football. How much do we know whether or not practice time? Is. A key indicator of success I? Mean I'm saying you never practiced but I think the bills having to split attention I'm talking like deep staff members, players studying tape between the titans and chiefs might have been a bigger factor. But when the game started tonight I mean this game to me is about mistakes by Josh Allen that we haven't really seen up to this point. They came home to roost tonight. The first interception was not on him. That was a deflected ball the second one though was and Ryan Tannehill? Kind of another notch in the belt of Sane for all of us on I'm included in that the question whether the off season and into this season would have been a path that showed us that Ryan Tannehill. Last year was an aberration from the rest of his career. He's not going to reach those typical heights, but he really fits in this offense. He is a tough minded quarterback and we see it with this runs. Tonight we see with him blasting for a first down that it didn't seal the game further sealed the game late late on his pinpoint passes play action attack under Arthur Smith you probably. Generated About Fifteen head coaching interviews during this game because it was on national TV because for some reason, Arthur Smith is still a little under the radar and I think it's about. The Smith the Arthur Smith. I mean you'll see that the future of offense I know it feels like. Like a paint company I get that it's not it's not something that sticks out but the bills defense. Week I. Think we came into the year thinking the titans defense might be the part of that team that kind of lax identity. Well, tonight, they really they put forward a great performance and caused havoc for the bills were the bills defense up the Middle Johnny Smith other guys just being victimized. I'd be real concerned about Buffalo's defense because teams are going to look at this and say, we're going to attack them this way.

"Saints. Defense isn't as good as I thought. They're not playing clean football. A lot of penalties. Michael Thomas is doubtful. This has upset written all over it. I'm going to go drew brees, pulls it out twenty, eight, twenty, seven saints but I think this has massive potential for an upset keep your in Detroit playing with a lot of confidence now because of their win over Arizona I think it's the very, very close game. Saints are playing clean football that's what they're known for. Thank you joy Jordan Palmer now joining us. He's worked with Josh Allen, Joe Borough and Sam Darnold and The world is changing quickly with all these quarterbacks and he is joining us now quarterback coach cornerback seminary program that helps quarterbacks reach their potential playing the NFL for six years. I really want WanNa hit on Josh Allen you have been working with him for years. He grew up in a tiny tiny little town and our out of Fresno. You just told me off every loves buffalo. It's a perfect place for him I'm kind of shocked by. The jump in improvement you you probably are aren't I take it. I'm not shocked by the jumping improvement I will say he's kind of ahead of where I thought. He'd be Kinda stayed ahead of where I thought. He'd be you know coming out of college I remember on your show we were talking about Sam, Darnold and for the pre-draft and his Josh came up a lot of folks thought. They saw the inaccuracy they saw the completion percentage in College Wyoming and so it was very easy to label him a potential bus. He he did have all the ingredients but there's a thing that doesn't show up on tape that I've been fortunate to experience, and that is how. He is and here's the thing about coach ability coach abilities not about talking in your shirt and doing the right thing and say, you have to be athletic which he is among the best athletes in the league at this position, and you have to be all in on the right plan. Now, my name keeps getting attached to him, but that's just In the offseason Brian Cabell is a name that nobody's really talking about enough offense coordinator is dialing it up quarterback coaches, Ken Dorsey. So he's he's surrounded by a bunch of good people that are giving him good information and and dialing it up in the personnel adjustments, and they've had in the way that that brandon being general managers building and then. You get a talented coach guy in this situation numbers yet. quarterback coach quarterback summit Jordan Palmer leads that it's a fascinating program and he's worked with a lot of the good ones I wanNA. Talk I'll go to Joe Borough in a second who you've worked with but Russell Wilson I've loved him forever but he's playing at a level now where incompletions are rare what what is the light? What is what is the jump? What what what has he done in the last off season? We know he's grinder, but there's something going on here. He's playing at a level that's a notch above his level. Yeah I totally agree he's fun to watch his anybody right now and. We've never really said Blake if Russell wouldn't have made that play they would've won that game like for years. been the reason that they lost and I know we can circle super bowl but that's that's pretty specific I. Think the biggest jump for Russell. This is just my hypothesis here is this past off season Russell Wilson is typically one of the busiest quarterbacks in the league. He's married to a very famous person. He's got a clothing line. He's got a ton of marketing deals. He does a ton of his foundation they run camps, the country he's very philanthropic. This dude runs a million miles an hour and I think Kovic. Locked him down in San Diego. All he got to do was focus on football in working with his teammates as we saw instagram a little bit. But I think shutting him down this off season. gave him one thing to focus on and since getting drafted a few years ago this might be the first time in his career that he's a hundred percent only pay attention to football and I think we're seeing the results of that Lamar Jackson Monday night. He's now never won a game he's trailed at half. It sounds or feels like something I don't know exactly the how big it is but is there I said the other day is that whereas Mahomes is on an escalator going up, he's on a people mover at the airport Lamar. He's going forward faster than ever, but is he going up? Is there a ceiling with Lamar in your opinion? Well I. Don't know if there's a ceiling but I know that if nothing changes, he's probably at the ceiling in my opinion I think Lamar Kinda like you Maroon. Uber I came out yeah. You know in the beginning it was like you're trying to wrap your head around this like oh my gosh wait a second the APP I trust that they kick me up and so the the early adopters if people saw it They thought it was awesome and Lamar. Coming out we all saw it in college but then the second part of Buber was when he started to go do I trust this way? This is a stranger picking me up in my Car Right with it's like, but is it going to translate? He's so fast. Is it GONNA translate to the League and then it started to work and everyone was all went right to the point where he was MVP But you know calling you're you're a celebrity, you're you're wealthy guy you've had a driver before give somebody, pick you up and they're only working for you that night there's a difference between any of these ubers and having a driver and I just look at Lamar and I go it was awesome. It was hard to see if it was going to work and then it's work. But. Here's the difference in until he can throw people opening control the football even on completions is I think he's a little off little inside a little low little. Hi Mark Andrews makes more spectacular catch than people give him credit for yeah, and we saw it last year in the playoffs when he was a little high and that turned into a pick and it happened a couple of times and so until he improves accuracy these other guys, Patrick Russell, they're just going to be a gap ahead. I love. The Ron's I love the excitement I don't miss any Lamar Jackson Games, but until he gets that detailed accuracy. I think he's probably scratching the surface the ceiling will you told me? Joe Borough was going to be really good. He is I do worry joy and I talk about this. It's got an Andrew lock feel and he's not quite as big and thick as Andrew. He's just getting pummeled and I worry about the psychology of that and how long can you just take sec football's good it's not the NFL Do you worry about the psychology of getting? So he's on pace I think joy said this week to get sack seventy eight times. That's like double Andrew Luck do you worry about that the effect? Will. This feels like. David Carr actually, if you remember when he was the first thing Houston Texans, I think he broke some records in terms of Saxe. But here's the deal I I worry about. Joe. Physically like anybody. Worried about Sam darnold shoulder I'm worried about all kinds of things physically for these guys. I can just tell you right now I am not worried about anything that happens between the ears with Joe Borough this guy I've talked to you about it from a confidence standpoint and a maturity standpoint, and those are the two things that make you play well early whether it's college or pro. This is off the charts and so I don't see him having issues with hanging in there and take another shot. This is not that guy he's going to get off the canvas and one another round in. So I'm worried about him. Physically he is taking a beating, but he's also twenty four years old or whatever he is. So I think he's going to be fine and as they build this line, they've got some weapons and they've got a guy who's GonNa Compete for four quarters and throw people open. So I think the future is bright as it's been for Cincinnati by the way cams mechanics are better. It's noticeable. He's much tighter. I mean this is what you do. So you can use all the verbiage that you would use. But when I watch him play, he's more compact. The shoulders don't dip. Shocker his accuracy he's been really really good like I. Watch Cameron on like this is. This is the camera. Wish this Cam I'm totally into..
Bills rally to beat Rams 35-32 after blowing 25-point lead
"The bills. Blew a twenty five point lead on Sunday and lived to tell the tale. The bills happily received the gift of questionable Pi call on fourth down. Then won the game on a Josh Allen to Tyler. Crop Hook up with fifteen seconds to play final score thirty, five, thirty, two. Wow Greg the rams came this close to a comeback for the ages. Only let victory slip away. They left too much time on the clock. When you come back from twenty three, you got a time that final touchdown just to go to overtime and then win the coin flip, which is probably the only way. The Rams Defense was GONNA get a stop in a big moment here because Josh Allen. Did. It all in this game in terms of the rollercoaster, the the whole experience they had nine possession and they and they scored five touchdowns. So I don't want to hear anything about the bills offense being in any way let down now he helped set up the comeback with a couple of turnovers, one of which came on a very questionable call, but was also a terrible throw by Alan. So yeah, he was at some fall Aaron Donald took over the game as Donald Does but my big takeaway is that the bills are an offensive team you WANNA get on part of their team. For blowing the lead, get on the defense I I look at them more as a team. That's GonNa make mistakes offensively as we saw here and there but that had to third and twenty three situations with the game on the line and they wound up converting the both they got one into a four, thousand nine. They got that questionable call as you mentioned Dan and and if they didn't get it, we'd be talking about how they blew this game but I still. As. A global view. Take a look at this bills team in think this offense is really dangerous and Alan's going to have some ups and downs but the conversion that they've had into an offense that can score over thirty regularly is massive and they are gonna be a tough team to beat when that's the case One thing stuck out to me was the uproar over the the controversial call at the end of the game and to be honest I caught a lot of this game. The only reason the rams were in the game was because of a bad call in their favour in which there was a simultaneous possession interception, which was clearly caught by the offensive player, and then once they hit the ground was wrestled out of his hands by the defensive player was a horrible call and they tried to defend it afterwards, our river on did and. It didn't make any sense when he tried to defend it either terrible throw though two and they gave up four touchdowns in four possessions very quickly. I think it's giving the rams a little too little credit's saying that's the only reason. It was definitely a turning point but it was a bad decision by Alan and more more to the point the rams offense started cooking. In the third and fourth quarters I hated that call. It's funny. We just started this show talking about how referees are keeping the flags in their pockets that to me at the end of the game there and I I know L. River on got behind his boy there. But that seemed very ticky tack with the game on the line to call that. But you know at that happens ultimately I think if you're the rams. Yeah. You're smarting from that call but also there are two third in forever's that they had right the bill. And all you gotTa do is make stop and that was you know that was to opportunities they had and they and they let it go by the boards and that is a credit to Allen I didn't get a chance to see this game. So I can't really say too much about it other than. His ability to just move this team up and down the field for three straight weeks, he is passed for three hundred yards. In, three straight weeks and they are averaging I believe four hundred and thirty yards. Total yards per game and thirty one points per game through three weeks, which is obviously franchise records across the board. There's something special happening with his offer.

"Toppled the Texans. Texas. Martin. Jackson man. Well when you look at it, what are you? What do you think I mean you you start to talk about some of the things that he can't do but not the things that he does. So well, which is lead his team to victory. Now look when you look at the playoffs situation and you say to yourself okay. Lamar Jackson hasn't won in the playoffs, but let's talk about the other quarterback on the other side into Shawn Shawn Watson you thought with Larry Thome so being signed to a long term deal to protect. Him on the left side, he's taking care of business but the rest of that offense align is not giving him the protection he needs to find the receivers down the field. Yes. He does not have the de'andre happens, but he has capable NFL pro y receivers that can get open if they get the time for him to throw the ball, the Andre Hawkins was his main target. Last year exponentially more passes than anybody else on the field and that was always questioned. The question comes out to key can bill O'Brien be both can. Kenny be coach I never thought he could you agreeing with me now we finally on the same page, I never thought he should, but he is in, I think some of the moves that he made is questionable but you know as well as coaching some of his coaching is questionable people focus in on the front office. His coach is questionable as well. I will the Texas have won the division for the last five years. Key thinks that's the most empty stat and football every time I, bring that visa you gotta be kidding with that. So does Shawn and Texans fall to Owen to Lamar's to Patrick Mahomes is to know and again a week from tonight. One of the biggest Monday night football games. In recent memory, it'll be the ravens and the chiefs on ESPN's Monday night football a week from tonight France. Key I to overall picks in the two thousand, sixteen draft golf went one wince when to and right now that seems to be the hierarchy. That's right well, look I think when you talk about Jerry Gos- performance against Carson Winston some of the things Sean McVeigh did to that defense yesterday. You could tell that Sean McVeigh was cooking. He felt really good about their preparation coming from the west coast of the East Coast Indians getting after them from an office standpoint jared Goff spit that ball out all over the place Robert Woods Henderson Cooper Cup, they've higby they made the Philadelphia Eagles defence looked like nothing. I like Jared Goff Lot we the first game week one when they played against. Dallas people were talking about Dallas so much and one of the things our talking about behind the scenes as well. Maybe this is an indictment on how good the rams actually can be and looks like they're proven that point moving forward. That's a great point. People are so down on Dallas, maybe we should take a look at the reverse oh speaking of Dallas. Tanenbaum Front Office insider Mike Tannenbaum with the dolphins in the jets earlier this morning call this a one in a million the botched onside kick that I'm sure at this point everybody knows I don't know if there's one in a million I've seen other onside kicks were dude stood around and didn't just this one was glaring it was out in the open space and I don't. I have no idea why the Atlanta Falcons decided to just do that I'm shocked in Julio Jones was like right there. I just I don't know why he didn't. Dive. But as I continue to watch the video, I almost feel like they were hoping that it went out of bounds before got to the year mark, and then once it got to ten, your market was too late because they were boxed out by the cowboys cowboys fell on it and they went on this victory for Dallas could change their season completely, which means giving them positive outlooks moving ahead because they very well could have been owen to go into Seattle most likely drop out would go three and you're now you're looking at some different. You. There one in one or they won't know what I'm sitting there wondering what I'm trying to think. Philadelphia's only to wash is one and one John Too. So their first place. Watching, that onside kick was like watching a car accident in real time, but in slow motion. What so it was a catastrophe but I do want to give back his flowers I mean think about it spotted them. Twenty points overcame three turnovers overcame to failed. Fake punts threw for four hundred and fifty yards and ran for three days and you say give him his flowers there's no question he deserves flowers. But this is the debt. Prescott that many people wanted to see a guy that can lead his team from double digits back into a win Kala. Biggest question is how many bouquets can you buy for forty million dollars we're about to find out and Oh, by the way, let's sneak this one in. There was so much happened yesterday we gotta remember this guy was on the field. Grady, avoids in Oh in to start they get it done against Carolina. They'll be in Denver Sunday. I didn't ever think that they would go to a figure that they will get the offense figured out. Nick got going Brady at times. Look like Brady, and at times he still looked like he was trying to figure it out in Thomas Tommy knows what to do some of these plays that are in there like the flea flicker long past that was something that you saw in New England. Throwing up the sidelines Mike Evans on the back shoulder that was something that he may famous in New England were Randy Moss. So you start to see some of the New England principles creeping into the Tampa Bay buccaneers offense in. That's what you're GONNA get Outta Brady look was that was without crisci when as well not play. So we go back to week one everybody wants to jump on Tom Brady throwing those two iron tease Bruce Aaron comes on he says a couple of things just take it easy take it easy. Tom will work it out. Well, he wasn't flawless yesterday, but he certainly looked. Like, okay, I'm starting I'm starting to get it get it going and this is a marathon not a sprint indeed in the words of another great quarterback that's playing these days are e. l. a. x., and you sort of mentioned with Bruce Arians. It said I was a little surprised to see what we saw in week one in new. Orleans. They didn't give us anything or show US anything we weren't expecting tom was a little rusty. Tom. Put an end to all of the divisiveness whatever media divisiveness there was essentially saying, Hey, man dinner last didn't give love to Aaron Rodgers for MVP over Josh Allen. Still talking about the. We're GONNA talk about that in just a little bit because a lot of our callers are hot on. Want to remind you. If you've got anything, you WANNA talk about hit us up eighty eight say ESPN eight seven to nine, three, seven, six Mars. Donald and Sweater overweight if you want me to pick another quarterback, I can. Pick. Another, before you if you want me to pick another. Hit US up eight say ESPN Eight, eight, seven, nine, three, seven, seven, six year thoughts on anything real quick brady's thoughts on what was different this Sunday versus the previous one execution was a little bit better i. think we still are a long ways from where we need to be so. It was A. We have the ability to make plays I think consistency dependability are going to be things that we really need so. guide you back to work and a clock ticking next week so. Going to get folks on next week's game and try to be better next week. They will be in Denver next week. How `bout this quarterback match up. Ever. been bigger between two quarterbacks the likely Tom Brady and Jeff Driscoll key next Sunday play well though he did well, that's a good point. Jeff just go knock them. So many lives man coming from Florida when he was at University of Florida seemed like he played like three different colleges and he's been around for wow. No question. We'll see what he can do. Obviously, the Denver Defense won't have done. That's next for TB twelve next for US calls your calls eight, eight, eight, seven, two, nine, three, seven, seven, six, easier, eight, eight, say ESPN trevor.

"Or the dolphins I don't know if I could walk away saying, Josh Allen is looking like the MVP, right now after seeing Russell Slang for five TD's yesterday I don't think I don't think Dan meant MVP of the NFL but once you backed him into the corner, he stayed with the NFL I think he really meant AFC east. Okay. Is what he really was trying to say I. Think he's trying to say that Josh Allen is the MVP of the AFC. After to think that's what he was trying to our hope. So because I mean Russell Wilson has. It has eleven incompletions riot first of all, like he shredded the New England Patriots Secondary yesterday and then went on the road in Atlanta and took care of business a week ago walking again. So. Dan. Dan's just working damned. Jay. You gotta get back into the lighting. J will say, will he he? Dan has an observation about quarterback. Josh Allen is certainly playing at a superior level. He's gotten better every single year they went out and got him Stefan. Dicks to help him come better. I get it. There's nothing wrong with I just WanNa make her that and his style of play but again, they did play against. Jets. In. The dolphins. Make sure that I am not. It's blurry. It's been a long weekend US opened a lot of games going see east AFC east and he's in AFC east. MVP. Okay. So that was the literally. Walk away moment. Jay. You saw me I had to stop him in the middle of his answer and he gave me a look. I gave key a look. It's wanted to make sure I was hearing myself as soon as you said it I didn't mean to say that that's all. I asked him in he answered it the same way again, but he forgot. So I was like what happened moment and life what happened was he's Dan is smarter than that. is now plug back in. Can I just give you a couple of numbers since you guys did mention that Russell Wilson nine touchdowns just in defensive. Lobski and Josh. Allen. You mentioned the quality of Competition Russell Wilson's going Falcons pats and obviously you have for Josh Allen going jets and dolphins but here are the numbers in. Laughed while saying, it's two week one just throwing it out and these aren't as impressive as Russell's but week one, thirty, three for forty, six, three, hundred, twelve yards, two touchdowns no pickus. Yet. But listen to this one yesterday. This is the best game of his career statistically young career twenty, four for thirty, five, four, hundred, seventeen yards, four touchdowns no picks. That's a really great. No matter who you planning unjustly good I'm happy for him. I'm just not very on the VPN no damn lease after I two weeks. Russell Wilson is. Russell Wilson is man. Lay The sports center's women. You heard the man. Let's do it. Bidding the even the Western Conference Finals Rondo a two point one bounces it in Davis a three. Davis a buzzer Betty three pointer the Lakers still having lost a game in which they lead after three quarters. What five one three Lakers win they leave the Western finals, two games to. Players make big time play. That is Marquess to share and PJ. Carlesimo. You hear them call the NBA finals on ESPN radio and it's all anthony. Davis with the game winner with the clock running down wearing the Koby inspired Mamba Jerseys that Kobe held design. If you believe in Karma and Kismet, there was something last night game three.

"That's how big I am on Buffalo and if you in twelve games and you play good at quarterback yes you're in that conversation I don't know if he's GonNa have fifty total touch sounds like a Lamar or mahomes but I think you'll be. One of those guys getting love in those yard Barker Collins at the end of December Peter this is a twelve team. Now listen I the bills, my win the division, and you could talk to maybe eleven five twelve wins feels a little much. Maybe you could talk to eleven and five but Josh Allen for MVP the hype Train Begins Mike where do you get this like I mean I think Those guys. That's entertainment right I mean when you're talking about this, you're just you're you're trying to entertain the masses I mean, can we just put things in proper perspective even bills fans who don't want to hear it. Right? You know the guy is completed six passes in his NFL career over thirty arts. He's six, forty, nine in that area right? He's twenty seven for you know twenty, seven, four. One Forty Eight on over twenty arts like seriously like head he's thrown and when he throws the ball over twenty yards, he's got he's got nine. He's got nine interceptions. He's got nine touchdown passes like seriously tell me where you tell me where he's been anywhere where you think this could be mvp like like seriously you know when he said head really good when he's ahead average is seven point five yards per attempt his career it has thirteen losses he's at five six. Six Nine touchdowns thirteen perceptions like at some point, where's the data point other than you know I have this feeling feeling that he's GonNa play good like Josh Allen is the whole question mark there they know it I mean, they know it I mean the guy is yet to throw for fifty percent over sixty percent accuracy and his big arm his big army notice big armed brings you his big arm brings a six point six, one on a career in twenty eight games. You. Know. So then you say, well, he can run with the football. Okay. Great. All right. Great. That's wonderful. He can run with the ball like seriously like have you studied his rushing attempts. I mean like seriously like you know when you break down but yeah, he could take off and room but people know they need to spy on them. I mean I. Don't get it. I. Just don't understand like give me some facts. Tell me why this guy is going to be really good. You know when they're at shotgun. There's really there's really no time where you say, wow, he's really good. The best formation that he's in is when they're in two backs one tight end to backs to play devil's advocate. Mike. Maybe he's saying and you and I both agree Josh Allen a terrific athlete. We got it right great legs. He's fills the part. Okay. Fine. Maybe he's arguing with that athleticism and now the acquisition of a big guy big name instead on digs hell the next level but you're most salient point is why would you expect someone to be able to throw the ball deep when they've never proven consistently, they can do so I mean look I think tomorrow for the Daily coach this this where we're doing this podcast on Wednesday afternoon tomorrow in the daily coach to celebrate you know the opening a you know where I wanted to. Really I spent time with talking about Daniel Conham in the man who wrote thinking fast and slow. He's brilliant Israeli psychologists. He spent a lot of times on decision making any and he's kind of change. The way he thinks he's gone from from trying to emphasize how bias affects us which I think in this case, I think whenever you think Josh Allen is going to be the MVP. It's you like somebody like Josh Allen or you like a guy on their staff I mean typically I like you give me information. You like you know, and that's how it works. I think what we have to do. Is Divorce ourselves from those that liking and just look at the facts like you know give me data at councilman says, Look I, don't care what you think most times your decisions based on your instincts or raw if you can't find data to backup what you think then you're definitely rock and I'm trying to find data to support because look the bills have a lot at stake here they drafted Josh Allen over Lamar Jackson they traded up to get Josh our they got a lot at stake at and I am on record is liking everything about Sean Mcdermott and Brandon Bean like I think they've done a good job but I like Brian Day balls and offensive coach. But I think his hands become tied because when the reality of this player is when he has to when he has to play when the game is on the line and he's got a really be able to drill it down and win the game. You know when you look at that win wins and losses and you see such disparity between the winds ties and the losses you say to yourself will what's going on here well, he's planned each plan. Faster and when he plays faster, that becomes a problem that's the story when it comes to Josh L. Make Me Smarter Josh. I'm being MVP. There's the reasons why more than likely can't doesn't mean buffalo bills can't be a good team we'll.

"Tonight I think it's exciting to see what Newton can do a healthy Newton with Josh McDaniels and bill ballot check in this offense sieve juggernauts if you well and remember McDaniels they run a very innovative offense that Matt Werner ram mentioned it last hour in twenty ten they draft Gronk Aaron Hernandez they go to that too tight and sat before everybody else they have in the NFL did then it's copy cats city they hurried up shortly thereafter before chip Kelly was even hired by the eagles and now that's commonplace and this new read option type offense the Newton is a master of the patriots haven't done it given Tom Brady's obvious limitations in that category so this picture offense last year was a boring offense to watch it was a slog it was a struggle it wasn't exciting it was the first time where if you're a patriots fan you looked wistfully at the other teams and said why why can't we have Josh Allen yeah there is a ton of pics but always teases interesting to watch why why can't we have Lamar Jackson Pat Mahomes Ryan Tannehill why why can't we have to Shawn Watson why can't we have a quarterback who can move a little bit who can do more than the ball on the territory a five yard screen pass to a double covered Julian Edelman why well healthy cam Newton gives the patriots a more dynamic offensive attack I mean let's face it this was not a very good offense with Tom Brady especially in the second half of last season I think that there is that thirsty to try something new in belt check the is a really smart guy and smart people want new challenges and I think him new night I think introducing that element of offense which is going to come anyway because Jarrett Stidham is more mobile too so either way the patriots were gonna introduce more of that read option modern type NFL offense but and I think that excite spell check and probably excites McDaniels and in terms of where they're going as a running a running based offense Newton obviously is far more dynamic in that category the Brady too and if Sony Michelle returns to form a franchise and left guard this offseason me not to the patriots about their starting center David Andrews back healthy and they have three guys who can now play full back including two players who they drafted this year that's clearly the direction the patriots are moving find a really good and versatile defense and I Bella check as one league does this as the week goes this way Belichick is going that way and that you see that the roster construction of this team and I can even help

"Further proven otherwise can't noon is now the best quarterback in his division right I mean he's the best quarterback in the division right now I mean he's won a lot of games and he's thrown a lot of touchdowns and he's big and he's strong and he's good mostly like arm he's good yeah and Alan and Donna are unproven they are and could that change after four weeks this year yeah that could change like cam Newton could end up getting benched for ineffective play and can't and and Josh Allen and Sam Darnold both look hot out of the gates and both are leading football in passing state statistic that could totally happen and I could you know eat my words I don't want to say I don't expect that to happen I sure hope it happens but as it stands right now to day and this is a criticism I have of people who are like Nate you said cam Newton could be better than Tom Brady this year are you crazy Tom Brady from five years ago and I just want to stop you there because this is a top twenty from five years ago this is Tom Brady from right now and Tom Brady right now is not the Tom Brady of even four or five months ago he is forty something I'm almost thirty and I can barely play thirty six holes of golf without needing a jacuzzi tub in a backrub so don't give up right now I know Tom Brady's in slightly better shape than me I will concede that he likely has a slightly more rigorous workout regimen I get it he might be paying slightly more money to you know trainers and consultants slightly more I will concede that but the idea that we can't say cam Newton to day right now side by side with Tom Brady and cam Newton if you're going to tell me that he is better I I I don't I don't know about that I I just I think if you got a look at it from a non biased lands in say yes Tom Brady has warped and walloped this team for twenty years I respect the hell out of Tom Brady and if you don't I don't know what you've been watching but what I'll say is if you compare the two two day not you can't cherry pick this you can't say Tom Brady from two years ago in cam Newton from six years ago like add up but that's that's not what we can do here in this in this argument so I don't know I think it's really interesting I think we're going to figure out what you have in cam Newton pretty early on but it can't do is healthy pestilence seven wins at least for the new in the pictures I don't know what you could have penciled in you know yesterday Saturday before cam Newton came out like that I don't know what you can pencil maybe you maybe you're thinking with Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer whatever combination into going with their maybe you think therefore when football team I think that's crazy to think that with that defense yeah the news Kyle van Noy there was a couple other pieces but like that's again a defense that was literally last year considered maybe from a from an actual roster district and advanced analytics they appoint the best defense ever in terms of scoring and yardage output the fact that they're gonna lose one two players from a defense return everybody else that they're just gonna take this big dry I don't know
2020 AFC Win Totals
"Let's dive into the AFC after we hit the NFC last week and the Baltimore. Ravens are the first team up. Eleven Wayne Steve. Eleven for the Ravens. Weapons a big number. Baltimore was truly incredible. Astro you forget about how well this team really played so really. You're handicapping is Jackson going to be able stay healthy for the entire year. And that's too big of a question mark for me to be able to play over so I will pass on eleven. Y'All think that number is exactly right. If I had to pick I would pick the under if I had to lean one way or the other you know. They stayed very healthy last year. Matt Scott was sort of the only injury they had at center out. Expect them to have more injuries. This year I think defense is will have a much better plan for Lamar Jackson and Greg. Roman after they sort of go to option school. If you will talking with defensive coordinators in college this off season I also think you know at some point. Lamar Jackson is going to get dinged up and miss a few games. At least I'm not saying serious but he's going to miss them games I don't think. Rg Threes at great backup. So I would lean under on the eleven wins there for the Ravens. They might even lose jude on. And they don't have any pass rushers if they lose him in free agency. So I'd be under there. What about the Buffalo Bills? Their numbers only eight and a half. Steve Looks about right to me. Josh Allen played much better I'm sorry then What I expected and Alan having mobility in his legs really Made him a very capable quarterback. I just go back to Buffalo. I have a bias. Ross Against Buffalo New Love Buffalo. So we should talk about this. I never feel that Buffalo or Detroit or Cleveland can field a PL- a playoff team because there's no real Recent history of success and they're just cities that no one would wanna live in. So I think they have to pay through the nose to get free agents so I just don't see success continued success being possible. Absent a all star quarterback. How do you feel about that crazy theory? Well I think what's crazy about it is. I don't think that they need to pay through the nose. They just have to be the highest. But I'm not sure that that's that much different than the other teams. I mean when I was there. They signed free agents like London Fletcher. Takeo spikes lawyer Malloy Sam Adams I mean they signed a bunch of dudes so it wasn't like and they haven't made the playoffs in a long time now they. They made the playoffs last year and they should have won a playoff game. And so I. I don't agree with that. I think there's a lot of people that believe that I like the over for the bills. And yes maybe I'm biased. But I don't know what they won. Ten Games last year could have been more. I think that they're a pretty darn good team. I don't think Josh Allen is going to get worse. I think they know what they are and who they are. Yeah I I would take the over. I'm I'm surprised by the eight and a half number especially when you consider that New England. There's a lot of uncertainty there. I mean what a Brady doesn't go back to New England. Yeah that's a great point and and bottomline. Mcdermott is probably a top ten coach. The top ten coach. No one would ever put on their top ten list. He really does a great job. Yeah I'm surprised by that number that would that would be one of the ones I would feel strongly about at this point and I don't think that is just my bias showing again. These numbers
Four Ups, Four Downs From Patriots’ Division-Clinching Win Over Bills
"Earlier the patriots clinched an eleventh consecutive AFC east title twenty four seventeen they beat the bills Buffalo job inside the bats ten yard line inside the two minute warning but a fourth down desperation heave from Josh Allen fell
Buffalo Clinches Playoff Birth
"Your namesake team is in in the play offs. The bills I mean. I don't WanNa Brag Bill. Barnwell is a senior football writer at. ESPN he has consulted with NFL teams. But the bills are not in fact named after him. So tonight the buffalo bills beat the Pittsburgh steelers seventy ten clinching a spot in the postseason and bill. What's amazing about this team? Aside from being named after you Is that for most of the two thousands. They didn't even have a winning record but but now they have made the playoffs in two of the last three years during this rebuilding process. Where does this recent success begin in your mind? I think the simplest place for it to start is just hiring Sean McDermott. This is a coach. Who really seems at odds with with a lot of what? NFL Teens tend to do when they have head coaching opportunity. Pop Up Sean. mcdumber forty two wasn't like he was old but let's face face it every coaching opportunity. That's popped up over. The last three years has basically been. Let's try and get a offensive minded coach or someone who is particularly close to. Sean McVeigh and correct defensive minded coach the panthers weren't even coming off a good season they were six and ten and ranked twenty six points allowed the year before so the bills really took a shot on shark dermott top of that. The bills gave McDermott some level of personnel control. which teams are really it? Really Loath to do it. First Year head coaches but it worked. The bills had an excellent free agent period in two thousand seventeen and they earned their draft totally differently that year their previous previous GM Doug Whaley had repeatedly traded up in years past regrettable move. Sammy Watkins. Being the most notable one but damage first move was to trade down and and the first player he drafted was Davis White. WHO had a big game against the steelers? Last night tonight again squirts out of bounds around the twenty yard long. So why headed early picked in fact. We'll before McDermott joined the team in two thousand sixteen they had the twenty seventh best defense in the NFL according to football outsiders after that they started taking up up in now bill. It's one of the best units in the League. How did this defense gets so good so quickly? I mean just to keep it simple. They got rid of everybody pretty much. I mean. The fifty three players were on their roster for the final game in two thousand sixteen before Mcdermott arrived. There's three guys left in the Renzo Alexander Jerry News and Shack Lawson all front seven pieces. I mean everyone else. Fifty other players on this roster Aurora ellsworth point and the bills have drafted well. But I think what makes this team so interesting as they really go out of their way to get veterans from other rosters and saw seemed to get more out of those players in their previous teams games in their first free agent period Jordan play Mike Hide Jordan Philips for example comes to mind in recent years where he was a second round. Pick washout of Miami. The bills brought him in. He has nine and a half sacks this season as defensive tackle. That's really impressive. There's just a lot of players on this roster who either were good somewhere and have become great in buffalo or who really weren't playing very well at all or almost out of the League who have become regulars on this really talented bills defense so last year the bills. Roll the dyson Josh Allen in the draft trading up to take him seventh overall despite his lack of college production in his rookie season was pretty underwhelming warming. Bill Fifty two point eight percent. Completion percentage just five point four adjusted guards per attempt. It seemed to me that they approached this off season with a really concerted strategy to build around him in free agency. Signings worked out for the team. It's been really good. I mean it's really the same philosophy sophy we saw on the defensive side of the ball. Those have had fifteen players. I not on offense for at least twenty percents of the snaps. Twelve of those guys are new into the roster. It's both running backs. All three of their tight ends five of their six top offensive. Lineman you know in a League where so many times you hear here that a team should sign a player or they actually do sign a player because they know the system quote unquote the bills. Sort of realized. Hey we have coaches who we pay to teach each player's the system. We should just go get those guys instead and so many of those players are playing in a high level and I think. It's really been perfect for Josh Allen Alan who even going back to Wyoming. He had to play hero ball. He had to sort of make big plays for his team to win. And we've seen a totally different quarterback this shear. I wouldn't argue. Allen is finished product but he's been productive quarterback this year a using his legs to create opportunities. He's hitting a lot of intermediate passes when he didn't do that last year. And he's avoiding turnovers man after throwing four interceptions in that really frustrating loss the Patriots week for this offense. Turn the ball over four. We're times in nine games. That's incredible for an offense that really just turn the ball over at will last season and they turn the ball over twice against the steelers last last night but they still did enough on offense to victory the snap just gonNa keep it off. He will sail. into the end zone touchdown touchdown buffalo. Josh Allen from one yard out and the bills are on the scoreboard early in the second quarter. Do you think there are any lessons. That other teams can take from the bills rebuilding process. Yeah I I do think so and I'm GonNa make a comparison that I'm sure. Bills fans are not really gonNA love but there's a lot of patriots in what the bills have done in their philosophy. The bills have been great at Pro Scouting and they've really found a way to bringing those players like I said who were struggling elsewhere. who were just guys elsewhere and turn them into much better contributors with Buffalo? They've done great work with undrafted. Free Agency have a couple starters in their secondary from there as well. They built their scheme scheme to really accommodate their players. And that's not just the Patriots thing but also way ravens thing where we're seeing that with Lamar Jackson and all the great stuff they've done on offense The bills don't have a scheme that throws the ball up fifteen times a game downfield. Just because Josh Allen has a strong arm they create better throws for him that that play to his arm strength as opposed to just trying to hit a big play because Josh Allen has in his arsenal I think in the big picture. There's just this idea that you shouldn't blindly follow what the NFL does with their trans so the bills are in the playoffs. Most likely as a wildcard team and bill while the defense is he's one of the best in the league offense has been up and down they really didn't produce very much against Pittsburgh. Do you think that that's a formula that can and work in January. I do not. I think they're a team. Nobody's GONNA WANNA play this postseason. It's very different from twenty seventeen eighteen where I don't think it's fair to say. The bills sort of meant the playoffs by accident that year. When they benched tyrod Taylor Nathan Peterman in mid season and kind of just rent a hot streak into the playoffs over the final month of the year? This team is way better on defense. They have more faith than Allen and I think the playoffs actually line up pretty well for for them as a five seat which is most likely where they're gonNA fall. They're terrible matchup for the Texans who they really really gave a tough game. Two in two thousand eighteen only for Nathan Peterman the throw too late interceptions to hand the texts victory and then they gave them our tax and Fitz. When they played last Sunday? I don't think this is going to be the last time the bills are going to be in the playoffs with this court. They're really opposition to be the best team in the AFC east. If the Patriots slip any further. And I am. I don't think I think it's too far to say that I'd be the best team in the AFC east right now
Is Homefield Advantage Dead?
"WANNA start here eight and I think this allows us to get in week fifteen you mailed me some stats last week And now we saw again today. Road teams were nine and six against the spread. The road teams won all nine of those games outright for the season road teams against the spread. One twenty five ninety three three and five there thirty two games over five hundred while home favorites Through fifteen weeks or fifty seven eighty one in five twenty four games. That's amazing right there. And we have had over and over again these double digit losses. We just had it today again with San Francisco cousin. Sal I ask you this homefield advantage dead. It might be there might be. I think you said you said it in basketball you were saying was dead. It's funny yesterday on text exchange. But yeah if you're looking through your pools and you have to pick sixteen games a week if there are no bison. You're going six and ten every week it's because you're taking home favorites. I know I know it's hard hard. I know when the better team is laying six at home. It's hard to not circle the left side but stay away. It's very bizarre an extremely bizarre week. The raiders was ending that Falcons ending the Vikings first half cost people money the way that ended obviously the Redskins Eagles. That might have been the worst ending if you had if you had the redskins the plus points Or if you're going against Cooper cop in your honesty semi funky you hold. That thought we were talking about that. I think what's interesting to me. I I remember I wrote about this at the end of last decade ironic. I think Oh eight zero nine I wrote about this trend with with the NFL where it didn't see my homefield matter the way it did and then we had settled into this eight nine year run. We're homefield still mattered. But not like a date when we were growing up where it was like. If you went into somebody else's house also really hard to win and then you get to this year and I think we're seeing it with basketball to serves texting boat this weekend. I think there's three reasons I think the first reason is the secondary market. And the fact that you just don't have stadiums anymore words just completely fans for the home team yet so it it always seems to be more splintered than it used to be. The tickets have gotten way more expensive so I think that's that's Priced out some of the crazies. You know like some of the friends wrens. You had grown up some of the friends that I had back in Boston. It's just harder for them to for tickets and then I think the third thing. There's been so much talk about civility ability at games and you know fan behaviors. Just been a huge spotlight on how people behave and what they're allowed to do and yell. Oh and all that stuff and the crowds just seem Tamer and we saw today with the raiders. Blew a game late to Jacksonville Euro and this was the last I Oklahoma Game. It was on those on that. They're not gonNA lose their last home game and frigging g Menchu when right down the field out and then we saw it again today with Buffalo. It's like Ow Josh. Challenge when push comes to Shove Jiaxuan is not GonNa be able to get points in Pittsburgh. The crowd will take him out of it their defense no Josh Allen right down and scored. I don't know who has the great home field advantage anymore. So we'll Josh Allen didn't have a great game no thirteen completions. That was just an. I'm sorry I Pittsburgh Burke might still make the playoffs and I pray that they do because I have. They're the only team I could see betting against in that first round like I have a feeling on any other first round match unless Pittsburgh goes to Kansas City. I mean they've they've got in the last five games in which the supposedly hot they scored fifteen points a game. It's just Mike. Tomlin did as much much as he could. He can't do what you can do for this offense. You can't fake punt from his own twenty eight every week. I'm sorry but I think you're right. I think it's all the things you said. I also I think. Road teams coaches management has figured out the exact amount of time a team should spend in the opposing city. You know it's easier to travel now all that kind of stuff so there's not that much The jet lag isn't as big a concern. But you're right. We used to see division winners at seven and one eight eight. No now aside unless you like the packers this cowboys eagles four and three Kansas City foreign three at home like even the really good teams. You know Houston only five and two at home. Buffalo's GonNa make the playoffs only four and three at home i. I don't know what the reason is but trust us. These home teams are not. They're not better than they were five ten years ago. Yeah and I think that Tennessee Games are good example right. Yep didn't really seem like it mattered. Where that game was played and I don't think it's GonNa Matter Week? Seventeen either right now. The crowd was was good. They were into it but it wasn't like wasn't like the Shawn Watson was going to be affected by the crowd. We left out another reason that I think matters maybe Charles back to our childhoods. But you know the headsets the head facing the helmets and the and the QB being able to hear the offensive coordinator being able to move faster and the the even somebody like trubisky you know they were in that game that I know the packers won by eight. And if he didn't see the game you just assume The packers they were up double digit second half but the bears were lingering in that game and there were a couple of moments era when it seemed like they had a chance maybe to force overtime and I didn't think h Bisky who I don't think is good then look scared but he. He certainly wasn't rattled by playing in Lambo. So I stopped when when you know the we've been doing million dollar pegs you and I have been. We've been betting all season. I've really stopped looking at home field. They're very very few times. Do I say to myself. Oh my God that teams home. I really really love having the home team here even even tonight I bet on Buffalo. Hello at Pittsburgh. And as you said Josh Allen wasn't great but they were still able to move the ball and they needed to and their defense certainly traveled. It didn't seem to matter to them where they were playing. And I just think we throw homefield out. I don't know where it really matters anymore. Well if we go into the playoffs saying I just can't see so and so winning at ax EXC. There's not that many of those anymore right right. Then probably win their game at home and you know the niners or or or award seahawks over wax or they'll have a by but you know those some of those row teams near Green Bay will probably win at home but you can't say unless it's dot co dot com is going to Kansas City. I can't really say Buffalo. There's no way they're winning in Houston right or anything like that especially when you get to the one to three seeds when they match up so do you think is Seattle place that you feel like homefield battered team in the playoffs That's probably top three but not as much Chisato did eight years ago when Tony Romo had to go there or something like that. I don't think it's slow because think about what are they foreign to Yeah about about their last couple of games whether seven and one on the road I mean it is scary arose team right there. Last couple of games Minnesota went in there and put thirty autumn atom. Yep and then the game before that James Put thirty four on them in that game went to overtime I don't know I I wanted to start. The season isn't yeah. It's not the
Allen's fourth-quarter TD clinches playoff spot for Bills
"The Buffalo Bills forced five turnovers and Josh Allen threw a touchdown to Tyler Kroft with under eight minutes to play giving the bills a seventeen ten win over the Pittsburgh Steelers Alan passed for one hundred thirty nine yards to score and interception all running for another touchdown the win moved the bills to ten and for their most wins since nineteen ninety nine and clinched a playoff berth for Allen's team the goal is to get yourself in a position to have shot at the Super Bowl next to get to the playoffs so we've done that I see we know we have two more games in two more crucial games that could you know really dictate the outcome of where we're out more receded so it's a good position to be in John Brown hauled in seven passes for ninety nine yards for Pittsburgh Devon Hodges was intercepted four times passing for two hundred two yards and a touchdown to James Connor the Steelers are now eight and six Josh foundry Pittsburgh

Frank Gore passes Barry Sanders, hits No. 3 spot on NFL's all-time rushing list
"I'd like to talk about a player on the bills. Offense the man they call the inconvenient truth Mr Franklin Gore now I understand that people who watch the NFL are generally loyal to teams and not players and that everyone has different allegiances. But the fact of the matter is if you don't root for Frank Gore at this point you're just wrong I'm sorry but those are the rules. Gore has been in in this league for fifteen years and on Sunday he passed Barry Sanders to move up to third on the all time rushing list another gift decor by drew over the left side. He gets closer. The first down is down at the forty one yard line. That's a gain of seven and that is enough record is now the third all time leading rusher in NFL history. How about that? You saw it here today folks along with Emmett Smith. He's one of just two running backs to start in over two hundred games with remarkable. Not only because he's thirty six years old when he began colleges quarterback Josh Allen was five but because he's conquered so much for those who are unfamiliar with his life. The story. Here are the broad strokes core grew up in poverty and his mother suffered from addiction. He overcame severe learning disability to get to college and once he got out there he tore his ACL twice and yet fifteen thousand two hundred eighty nine yards later. He still here about a year your ago. I was asked to participate in an NFL insiders panel where we argued why various player should get into the hall of fame. I made the case for Gore. Are The reason why he isn't a shoo-in is that despite his longevity he's never really achieve dominance at his position which I understand but even if he was was never the best he has always been great historic matters deeply to the league into everyone. WHO's been fortunate enough to watch him play? So here's hoping he makes it to sixteen thousand yards.
"josh allen" Discussed on The Stinkin' Truth with Mark Schlereth
"I will tell you this though on Thanksgiving Day and it'll be interesting like if the the bills go into Dallas on Thanksgiving Day and beat the Dallas Cowboys one Jerry Jones in that in his in his suite his head might just fly fly off like he just explode and then obviously have we ever had a coach. Get fired on Thanksgiving Day because I think it might happen like if that were to happen. Let me tell you the buffalo bills on the defensive side of the ball. Their top three as far as yards are concerned sir. non-defense there are top three scoring team against I. I think they have a legitimate defense. Now I know your counter senator. That is yeah but who they played I get it but they do have a really good defense. And I'm impressed with Josh Allen. I'm impressed with some decisions. He has made where he has not forced to ball where he's put the ball on target to crossing receivers on third down long underneath and they've been able to convert art and that he's converted third downs with his feet. He's a big strong kid. He's got a big time arm. Still make some mistakes along the way but and he is managing the game based upon his skill set and based upon what they have on the offensive side of the ball their physical group group up front. They'll run the football hill converts and plays on third down both arm wise and Legua. They're intriguing team to me and I think this is going to be for many of us is going to be the first look. We really get it. The bills of what they are and for the bills. I think this has got to be an important like this has got to be kind kind of their coming out party because all they have gotten all they have heard all bills mafias out there right now one of the great fan bases in all of the national football league and all they have heard is You know you guys haven't beating you beat Cincinnati in the jets. You know and Broncos and you know the Redskins and Whoop de Doo Basil. Who who gives a crap right? That's where they all right now so. I think this is a coming out party for the buffalo bills and I think as an organization as a team you have to understand. Matt you've gotTa come ready to roll ready to get that done. Yep as far as the other Games Chicago Detroit. You've done a couple of Chicago Games. Are they when you talk about the most disappointing teams in the NFL this year. Chicago's got to be in the top. Three right yeah there were so many rams or number one yeah they are. The Rams are incredibly disappointing Chicago's got to be right there just because you had expectations and you thought what you what you knew about. The the Chicago bears were hey young coach innovative offensive mind. Young quarterback should be continuing to ascend. Play better but we know one thing we can lean on Wigan lean on this stellar defense. Might this defense got pushed around. Midday mandate got now they lost. They lost Hicks And Hicks is an outstanding football player. They lost him in a game that I was calling early early. In London against the raiders. And then the raiders just absolutely punched him in the lips. I mean it was. It was ugly. How physically soclean physically? They beat them down and then a lot of teams got. Oh you can double team this guy and you can double team this guy and you can run inside. And and that's what teams have done discography bearer so. That part is really disappointing. Because they haven't been able to get off the field they haven't they haven't been able to be Dominant defensively so you. It's something you thought you could count on But it really comes down to for for the bears Mitch. Trubisky I mean. I've met with him several times. Just feels like when you it feels like you know the classic. I say the right things and I try to act confident but bottom bottom line is you know that is like There's a lot of false bravado. Their use watch him on the field and it doesn't feel like it translates that way so so the interesting time for the Chicago bears. Mitch trubisky because are you willing to make a mistake or are you willing to make an admission that you made a mistake or is it a mistake. Is it just a young guy. Hi that you only played thirteen games in college. I think he had thirteen starts in college. You knows it just a young guy that people have adjusted to. That needs more time. I I don't I don't know the answer that question but on the surface it certainly looks like it might have been a mistake. Is Matt Patricia. A steak yet. Another bill belichick disciple that leaves the cocoon of Foxborough. And just isn't the same. I just listen. I think that the mistake that most of these guys make is. They tried to bring the Patriot Way with them. There's the Patriot way guys in this hour. We're going to do it and the Patriot way this and the Patriot way. This and Bill Bell check did this and we're going to do it this way. We're GONNA and I think players just get to the point where they tune you out. Because does what you need to bring is your way but has it. Been That Way with Patricia. Me We saw here with Josh mcdaniels. It was ridiculous. How much He? He tried to be the little hoodie. But what have you got. Patricia is the same way. Absolutely ABS- yeah. I mean I. I've talked to a couple of guys that were just like displaced no On guys that have kind of forced their way out So now those guys obviously have their perspective right. Yeah but yeah I get that I get Matt Good Dude Man. I like mad a lot but I just think it's really hard to come from an organization that has that kind of domineering domineering perspective on everything and then they have the quarterback that will allow that to continue to happen. And you come in and try to recreate that and your players have never been exposed to it. I mean that's just straight up culture shock and I've said this forever. I really believe this if you're not authentic if players don't look at you like your authentic like it's your idea if everything comes from Geico when we were over here. We did this like when when that's your whole mantra when that's all players here you're like Dude W hat I dunno one original idea anything yours and I just think I think that just rubs players around what they want authenticity they WANNA guy. That's real they want a guy and I understand that you're GONNA you're GonNa Bring your experiences and that's what creates kind of your experiences in in your journey. That's what creates kind of your belief system and stuff but you know at at some point. It can't be all about the Patriot. Way This and the Patriot way that you know at some point you gotTa have your own way you gotta find your own way the saints. You know we look at this. NFC Picture and it's it's GonNa be fun man the NFC. Plows are going to be a blast. But I don't know it's just something something missing right now with the saints we ever since and I'm not saying it's a cause and effect. Can I think it's just a coincidence. But ever since drew brees has come back they just don't seem like the same team I know they're still winning right but it. It's funny they got brees and camera back and it. The defense isn't as it was earlier this year. And the offense. We're just so accustomed to the offense being you know Bam. It seems like it's a a whole lot of Michael Thomas and that's about it. Yeah and The they got their tight end back end. Got Camera Back. And they've had a couple of injuries up and down the office of line and a couple of key positions. I think armistead is going to be out for a while now so May Have had some issues. You know what I would say Mike I would say you get drew brees back and everybody just breezed us. I've relief like he comes back. And you're like who and say liftings is done. Yeah so I think there's a lot of hey guys we gotta rally round Teddy Bridgewater. We gotta go out here and Win Games. We got out go out now. Physical people people we gotta go out and do and so you have this five or six week where you're just you're focuses. Absolutely I mean just pointed right right and just laser type focus and then all of a sudden you get your leader back get your guy. WHO's in control bag? And everybody just Kinda Breathe Society Relief. You know you and I have talked about it here in Denver about just leadership in general and once Peyton manning retired like. We're like well. Where are the guys who played with Peyton Manning? We're the guys who played with demarcus. Ware were why aren't aren't those guys stepping up and taking the leadership role taking kind of the bull by the horns and I think everybody just goes. Oh there's our guy we can relax our guys here you know and nobody nobody really develops so all of a sudden peyton manning retires and you're like Oh what are we gonNA do now. I think exactly the reverse is true here in this case is you got drew brees baggy you like thank goodness. That's our guys back. Yeah you know we can all relax a little bit. It's been a intense six weeks as we. You know went undefeated during during his time away and here we go and I think there's I think there's something to that. I think what you're going to see here is Lena. Think you're GONNA see a little bit of a renewed focus down the stretch because I think the saints are damned good football team So I think you'll see some of that. I do have to ask you this. How about the Wayne Haskins getting his first? NFL Victory and missing the kneel down snap because he's taking a Selfie. Well you know. Oh I'd like to go off on that. But then I'm going to get the tweets that say okay boom. You're yeah exactly boomer okay. boomer didn't do do the new way of doing things once you relax. GRANDPA get off my lawn right so you know how I feel awful but God the risk of The boomer assault. Hey we by the way. We'd be remiss if we I I got to get your thoughts on Lamar Jackson. Oh my God would. I bet we do this every week. And you know a couple of weeks ago I said Russell Wilson was my mvp. You didn't really argue with me. But after after. Not only that. But what what. He's done the last well. What the the ravens done last three weeks? They've scored over one hundred points in the last three weeks eighty-six in the last two weeks and he's thrown. What ten touchdowns in in three weeks twelve twelve touchdown? Excuse me twelve touchdowns in three weeks. What they you did the rams the other day I know the rams are not the rams from last year but still that was a beat down they are the Baltimore? Ravens are the best football team in the national chauvel bullying Now the way they had built like I give a lot of Kudos to John Harbaugh the way they have built that football team Mike One. I sat in a meeting with John Harbaugh several weeks ago before before they played the Seattle seahawks and John told me. Listen Man. We're about ready to break. Akao he goes. We're GONNA win..
Quick-hit thoughts on the Patriots' win over the Bills
"Patriots sixteen to ten win over the bills in Orchard Park. The bills made this a game after a very slow start but there would be no magic when Barkley Barkley replaced an injured Josh Allen Greg who bravely locked up the Patriots in this kind of didn't see a lot of offense on display in Buffalo. No you asked you know going into this game. The bills make a statement or did the Patriots do Patriot. I guess it's both because the bills made a statement they made Tom Brady look worse than any has in in a long time. This was his lowest passer rating since two thousand six in a game. It's the most passes he's ever thrown in a game without getting to two hundred yards didn't even get close closely at one fifty. He was under fifty percent completion. They had seven drives where they went three and out they had only a couple apple more where where they got one first down they did nothing offensively and late in the game they were inside the five yard line with a chance to go up to scores and and they smartly kicked a field goal and I thought that was bill belichick saying this bills defense is is too good for us. We need to just go up six points. That's the kind of defense buffalo played but they get a special teams touchdown they knockout Josh Allen in the fourth quarter and they do a lot of things defensively on their own to get the Stop ATM in my tracks the decision fourth and goal to go for it because it feels like a patriots thing that they would go for it and since the moment but you're right they had that much faith the defense which they should be doing defense is incredible and the bills just weren't moving the ball. I mean you locked up New England but if someone had told me that you would have held Tom Brady eighty two three point eight yards per attend sub Gabbard so if you would have given up only sixteen points to this offense and if Frank Gore would have run for one hundred and nine yards at six point four yards spur Kerry I would have plucked up the bills. I would've thought they're going to find a way to they're not an explosive offense but find a way to get seventeen points. I mean the difference was the punt return touchdown. The Patriots scored the Patriots offense only scored ten bills offense scored ten and the Patriots Defense was very lucky to hold the bills to only ten because the bills did do a better job especially in the second half moving up and down the field but the situational defense that the Patriots have especially in the red zone with Jamie Collins and Kyle Van Noy and everything that they can do was really special today. You're tipping your tap. Your tipping your cap to a good bills defense and a well coached team. But how much of this does it raise any red flags for are you on the Patriots offense. It's a long season. I said going into this game. I didn't think their offense was nearly up to speed their offensive line. got pushed around. I think this the bills defense had a great plan for them. I mean yeah they have to be. They're going to be a different team in December one way or another whether they're better or worse. They're going to be totally different the fact that they we're able to sneak out a win was
Jets' Sam Darnold out with mono, could miss weeks
"Is the jets season already over. That's number four it. It feels like it. It certainly feels like it from the jets fans that I know who have already just like Oh my God. It's not even mid-september yet so that's how it felt just after game one right before mono for the seventy and sixteen loss to the bill seventeen unanswered points and and even by the instant jets Adam Gay standard a really astonishing press conference to explain or really not explain anything anything that had happened in the game where he said in a quote. That's the beauty part being a head coach. I can basically do what I want. That was in response to someone asking about apptime Montgomery snap count leave. That's response to talking about time Montgomery that how are you GonNa talk about Sam Darnold having mono or Levian bell getting an MRI on his shoulder anything actually consequential. When do we think Sam Darnold had mono because they got the ball back with like a little less than three minutes left down one? They only had two forty yards at home for riphil goal and they looked like an absolute shit show. I don't know I think that's that's a question after today's announcement because he's it sounds like he's GonNa miss a Lotta time unclear how much the things that they said is that he lost a ton of weight so then you wonder about his physical readiness CBS last week even to play like what was his conditioning. What was his stamina? Maybe that did have some sort of a fact act. I don't know but I think it's one of these jets stories where the instant reaction on twitter and on the Internet was like low mono and it's like you're saying it's actually not funny. It's a serious illness and yeah yeah. It is terrible way to derail the beginning of Sam Darnold Sophomore Season boot because it's the jets the impulse to say oh my God like how many things are gonNA happen to the jets only heading into week two and they have their Monday night football. They have the browns game on Monday night. The browns Ashley also coming off a disappointing week. One is kind of like instantly feels like a must-win game for both of these teams you look at the schedule. There's a real chance especially with donald out that they can start cr Owen sex like a real chant what happened to the line today. After the motto announcement the Browns went from minus three to minus seven yeah I mean that seems reasonable right. Ever seen is going to play quarterback as reasonable. If you actually watch Sam Darnold last weekend but go ahead of schedule the schedule is browns this week loss New England and week three loss by and week for a very very fortuitous bye week placement. They're good for the jets fans just emotionally they get they get a brief reprieve early in the season and then it's Philly Dallas in New England again brutal brutal that's L. draft picks Levian who by the way they might be injured when rusher but him but he would have to go nuts and one of those games levy on bell unclear what the severity he is. He's got soreness in his shoulder getting an MRI CJ Moseley. They're big ticket from Raven. One of my one of my favorite is good in the first half of the jets. He looked fabulous to give him a huge contract. He's hurt art sounds like he's progressing well but it's unclear when exactly he'll be back the already loss quincy for the entire season first round draft pick from the past draft when Williams it's not practicing right now ankle injury. If a lot of injuries mounting they had to they had to elevate Luke faulk Washington state talk on this podcast yeah so far I was not expecting us yeah from the practice squad to get ready to be the backup quarterback for Monday night football game that is now the place you WanNa be in week a two and then geese all of this get off his his announcement today of the Darnold mono illness was so bizarre like even by hi. The Adam Gates bizarreness scale standard. Here's what he said. Fourteen has mono and we'll be out for this game. You can't say you're starting quarterback's name name fourteen. He then continues so trevor will be starting okay big for all of our trevor say like nine starting. It's strange and then you can use in Luke. Falk will get elevated at some point. It'd be the backup so that would be that that he concluded then then the other thing that happened this week is that manish head report and the Daily News that way in case was still at the dolphins he broke the story SARCI prefer he was in love with one quack fell in love with the tape that he was crunching the film that he was studying. Oh it's Baker Mayfield okay sign like probably a lot of NFL front offices and coaches thought Baker Mayfield was the best quarterback in the draft. That's fine. Here's here's ears this Zinger bill he reportedly also preferred Josh Allen to Sam Darnold and did not quote didn't believe that Darnold had star potential so that's the thing that's now out in the world and even though he wasn't the jets doesn't matter it's like the thing that people are talking about is that Adam could would be made up sure I mean it could be somebody just league in that too mannish just to screw a random guess. It's definitely possible is just like the general tenor around Jason. The team makes it kind of hard. Doubt anything you here. It's one of those situations pretty pretty quickly gotten to that place like again you back to the way he was talking. After after the bills loss in just like the line played like shit the receivers played like shit the DB's played like shit you know he wasn't actually using foul language processing but he was pretty willingly throwing hired knitting them right because he's a Dick and Peyton manning is a hall of Famer of all time WHO's like show I kinda I like this Dick. He just says his mind Cher and he can handle it but if you put somebody like that with a young team in young quarterback in the big city might not be here I I am. I made excuses for news of Miami because the roster they did so many weird things for that. It was even hard to evaluate fused coach but I don't like anything he's done so far at the jets. He just seems kind of like a jerk. Never forgot that this is a man who said that the Internet and social media are pollution of the brain while he might not be wrong in that. I just want to say one thing on mono. Yeah 'cause I do think people underrate it and I think think it all stems back to a famous Brady Bunch episode seventies where it became you know it's a sitcom that was one of the formative shows has the seventies everybody under the age of I would say thirty five in every brady bunch probably right kyle over thirty five nine hundred thirty five kiling once I had had monitor just didn't watch other Brady thirty five over I would say at least knows all the brady bunch episodes right and that kind of made light of motto and it's like Yeah you can actually he died from on how you can get on school and not come back for two months right. It's like making kissing jokes but it's weird. It'd be like Kazan. darnold might have leukemia but models like really bad. It's it's it's terrible for Sam. I feel bad for my feel bad for jets fans and I wish that it's not realistic to wish for the fans to be able to enjoy a winning football team. I think the DADS fans host winning post football ball enjoyment. I wish now post apocalypse for the jets

"Deontay thomson. They got these players that no one's ever heard of that is one of the worst offenses in the NFL. So when you name off these stats completion percentage, I get it because they have no one they've no offensive weapons. But for me it comes down to what can Josh Allen being crucified on Twitter again for going out there. And you know, I said Ryan sturdy one years old it took seven season this year, Orion analysts and people are out here. Bashing Josh Allen after seven stars in the NFL. Again, I was not high on them coming out of this draft class. Maybe that's why thought he had potential and and saw something yesterday. But for me, I would much rather have Buffalo's future quarterback than Ryan tannehill. Because at the end of the day. We all know what Ryan's handle is. He's an above average quarterback. He's not going to get better than what we saw on Sunday. He had what three touchdowns a less passing yards. Josh Allen had on the ground. So I mean Ryan channel. Is what he is above average quarterback. That's gonna go out there. And when you eight nine games a season going to be heard for another three or four. But for me, it comes down to potential and I see potential and Josh Allen. It burns me inside a senior and go out on a limb for a Buffalo Bills player because that is the worst fan base in the NFL. I absolutely hate the Buffalo Bills will never go back to that stadium. Because they are trashed everything about that franchise is trash, but when you look at Josh Allen is and what he has the potential to be. I mean, we can all stay and talk about his arm. There's not a strongarm the NFL. You could argue then Josh Allen. We saw what he could do on the ground. He's not going to be able to continue to do that because again defenses Kiko Alonzo. They don't have a Ray McMillan. They don't defensive ends that look lost at times. So he's not gonna continue on the ground. If he does he's gonna end up in a body bag like Marcus mariota did earlier in the year until the one like those guys end up and bodybags. But for me, I saw enough potential. I saw the strong arm. I saw him move around the pocket better than I ever have seen Ryan tale. Around the pocket, but what it comes down to is accuracy. And that's the biggest flaw, Josh Allens gain. That's something that he was pretty much destroyed four and kind wise draft value start to fall on his year before he came out. I think down sixteen was arguably the number one quarterback in college football, and everyone was hyping them up. Then he had that off season in two thousand seventeen which ended up leading to coming out and being drafted by the Buffalo Bills. But his accuracy is definitely an issue Saul time and time again, even when Charles clay pass. I mean, he rushed around he looked like Brett farve running around. And then you just drew up this duck, and it came shortly Charles clay chocolate should caught it, but I was a bad throat football. So I see potential Josh Allen. My only argument is that you have this young guy. Twenty two years old who you do not know what his ceiling is. And then you have Ryan tannehill. Who you absolutely have all the all the evidence of what he can become. So that's the only reason I went out there and said, I think Buffalo's a better quarterback for the future. Because Ryan tannehill is not the future. It is what it is the verdict. Still Josh Allen. And as a dolphins fan. Let's just hope he turns into a Ryan. Let's just hope he's the next, you know, Matt Moore or some guy that's just going to be a career backup Brock Osweiler. That is what we hope Josh Allen becomes. But for me what he showed on Sunday leads me to believe that he can be a top fifteen quarterback and lead the bills still playoff victory sooner than later. I believe somewhere in the expose Josh house, just drop the term cheeseburger, walrus just for everybody at home. But anyway, you know, look, Josh Allen. He had an elite grade on pro football, focus. I believe he had the number one grade this week which when I looked at the game..

"And it turns out there are two separate truths. Number one is Nathan Peterman really was. You know, on track and earning the starting job. And the second thing isn't Nathan. Peterman was still Nathan Peterman. So that teaches us a lot about everybody else in quarterback competition. I think less of AJ McCarron and I don't know what to think about Josh Allen is this where they really just going to try to read sure, Josh Allen and try to throw Peterman hoping that he wouldn't be a complete disaster. In that case, I don't know why you don't go McCarron unless he's an absolute disaster. And so. Eight. I don't know what to expect from Josh Allen, except we keep going back to it. It's the Nathan for you thing where maybe Nathan Peterman is a is a elaborate setup to make Josh Allen look, absolutely competent, Josh Allen came in, and I'm not saying that he did anything good, but he was the only quarterback last week he who through deeper passes than Patrick Mahomes. He threw fifteen yard passes and Patrick Mahomes fourteen point six. So Josh Allens gonna, throw. Deep passes is gonna go for it is going to do a lot of things we're not used to seeing from the bills. And I think that you just bills fans are going to have to learn to know. This can be a lot of adjustment and it's going to feel a lot better because they just on him Peterman throw seven or sections into games. Unfortunately, those deep passes are going to the likes of Kelvin Benjamin and zeta-jones in front of the worst offense of wine in the NFL. It would have been hilarious if they had tried Nathan Peterman out against the chargers. Again. I would have so much and thank God for Josh Allen. That Joey Bosa is not playing this game because I have no idea which we both said would look like against that offensive line there. Josh l. let's career. Would it be over before it started? Yeah. They still have guys like Derwin James who are ready to screw up, Josh Allens career? Yeah, it plenty of guys. Let me be clear. It's still going to go really bad against the chargers. The chargers defense still has actual players. Here's my question. If they went Peterman if you looked at the tape and they went Peterman again at some point, does the league step in it's almost like the Chris Paul trade. Is there a competitive thing where it's just like, no, you just can't do this anymore. Here's my issue with the whole thing. And I, I believe we mentioned this on Sunday night. I don't understand the logic of the plan. Like if you thought our infrastructure is so garbage that it's not where trotting out a top ten pick in that offense behind that offensive line three into those receivers, fine. I completely understand that thought process, but how are you going to abandon that plan within a half? What is the thought there? How do you possibly reach that conclusion? If you thought? No, no. He's now. Ready. Let's not ruin him that first two quarters showed you something different. I just don't get how they're going about this and why. And maybe Josh Allen for the bills right now is going to be a better quarterback than eighth and Peterman, but I don't get how this is the smart decision long term. And we talked about this with a couple of different quarterbacks. I remember talking to Greg Olsen about it in regard to Jared Goff. His rookie year with Greg Olsen sets me was he felt like the eight games or seven games at golf played were perfect because it wasn't long enough to develop actual scar tissue in a really bad situation. Josh Allen starts fifteen games in this offense. That's plenty of time to develop some scar tissue. I had a line that actually came to regret because I thought it was a little too harsh around the draft, which was I said that whoever whichever GM picks Josh Allen will in five years, be leading an NFL network panel. Call it what I got wrong about Josh on. Five years? No. And what I'm saying is I immediately Kyle is like us kind of mean, and now I'm I realize that. A five years too long and be I've seen nothing in this plan..

"I feel like that's a waste that spot at that point. But obviously this isn't about Peterman. Now we move on from that and we move onto Josh Allen. What do I think is move as a bad one? It's a terrible move. Josh Allen shouldn't be playing at all the season, not because I think Josh Allen is a bad quarterback or anything like that. Going into the draft. I was pretty low on him preseason. I saw some throws that he made thought he was a decent quarterback. Obviously, still gotta develop. He's not a good quarterback right now, I'd say, but he can develop into being a good one. And I. I didn't think they need to play them all year. If it was me, I would've took whatever the win win season to win season that they're going to have with Peterman and just enjoyed that high draft pick, but the bills felt that wasn't the right thing to do. And it's kind of reminds me last year we had Tom savage into Shawn Watson over in Houston. I mean, Bill Brian really had no business starting Tom savage to begin with. I mean, we saw them in the preseason, Tom savage wasn't great or anything like that. At least this one was a bit different because Peterman was playing well against the second and third stringers. But either way, looking back Houston, Tom, savage played about as poorly as you couldn't week. One male Brian cuts them off says the Watsons are starting quarterback. Obviously, Shawn Watson comes in plays well blows out his knee, and now we're waiting to see what he can do in the near future. But I think this is a different situation to Shawn. Watson had the Andre Hopkins, Lamar Miller in the backfield will fuller who I mean runs a nice goal route and associations of line at least what's better than credits currently in buffalo. Buffalo as Kelvin Benjamin as their number one receiver. Which is awful. You lost two out of your five starting lineman from last year. Also very important players to your team and you let Shawn McCoy back there who? Yes is one of the best running backs in the league, but won't be doing much to season because all evens. They're going to do a stack, the box. They're gonna force, Josh Allen to beat them and let us not forget. Josh Allen has accuracy issues. Josh Allen is not a, he's not starting material. At this point, the bills are doing him a disservice..

"He just wasn't a very good player in terms of like. Hadn't dominated a small level competition like Josh Allen. The problem was Josh Allen to me, had a fundamental flaw. He just couldn't complete pass this. Well, I had a buddy when I went to the scouting, combine kicked off this podcast when out to dinner all the nights, it's basically drunk fest hanging out with my friends in the league and a couple of them. One really close buddy was just telling me, I think the guy's going to be a big time player. He's he's high character guy. He's really smart. He hasn't even scratched the surface really liked, and this guy's doesn't missile many players since I've known him. So I always in the back of my mind, like, you know, maybe I shouldn't go all in, but I was already all in just wrote it. Not that I, I don't regret it, but I'll say, sometimes, you know, right away. And this is where doesn't necessarily parallel Paul. George Paul, George had a rough first couple years wasn't I think to like the end of your two or your three to kind of clicked. And then he ended up taking jump. Never looked back in the second preseason game. I take away. It was, oh my God, Josh Allen looks at Carson Wentz, and I've never been afraid to say I was wrong. I think that's why Colin likes me. Mike. I'm not afraid to have strong opinions, say something, especially when it comes to players. I mean, we're just talking about sports here is national security, but I also don't say things if I don't believe it, I truly would not have drafted, Josh Allen well, and I'm trying not to overreact a preseason, but listen, I've been, I did this for three years in the league and ever since I've been in the media, I've been around the Niners raiders very closely. So just watching all their first rounders and watching the teams are playing. I got a pretty good idea of what something looks like in win is like, you know, I'm might be wrong on this one..

"So one thing that i told you i was dry i took my son to school this morning and that's an hour and a half round trip thing protests pro divorces fun so on thinking the whole way you know what the show today and i was remembering all the conversations that the me you and mellow had over the summer about this quarterback class and how great it was going to be of josh allen sam darnold josh rosen and those were the three dudes that we talked about all summer comparing them to maybe that two thousand four great class and then the season started week one we go to scout josh allen verse iowa sam darnold has twenty two turnovers josh rosen rubs people the wrong way also turns the ball over decent amount and then we see guys like baker mayfield and lamar jackson rise while maybe the top guys fall and one thing i wanted to like i told you i don't wanna get too high horsey here because we're all on the shit together but we have gone full circle with these quarterbacks now man of in june july august these guys are great they're going to go one two three quarterbacks coming up the board super early september to december everybody's like you guys were fucking wrong they suck i don't want to have a quarterback now it's april we might see five of these dudes go in the first round four probably going to top five that's what's crazy about it and i remember over summer we talked about how like hey the manning might be josh rosen and the philip river you know philip rivers we have sam darnold the philip rivers and maybe josh allen is the big ben and then baker mayfield and lamar jackson put themselves into this equation you have mason rudolph on the outside looking in but still probably going to find his way into the top fifty this quarterback class is absolutely insane and like you said matt from everything we hear it's expected that forego in the top five picks of this draft which is just it shows the demand for the position but it also shows that there is a lot of talent at the position this year.
