Jon Grudens Raiders and Tom Bradys Bucs: A Special Relationship
"Paul duty as I have a question for you where are you right now? I am in an RV at an RV park in Las Vegas and barring my mom and dad's RV while I'm here covering the now Las Vegas Raiders Paul Gutierrez not only covers the raiders for ESPN. He's written a book about Raiders Fandom and followed the team Vegas kind of living like. A little bit. Paul I of about fifty fall of questions about what life in that our views like. But it does feel like the ability to pick up and react to sudden schedule changes is especially important to covering the raiders these days starting with what's happening right now, we are talking on Thursday evening ahead of this highly anticipated raiders game, and there is a Kovic scenario that you've been covering in depth so. What do we know about the game schedule? What do we know about who's playing or who is not playing? Basically, what has happened is is right tackle. Trent Brown tested positive for covert. Now as part of the protocols here anybody who's deemed a high risk contact with him has to self isolate for at least five days plus one which would be the. Last point of contact, which was practice on Monday they are all there. They were all there together It's the raiders entire starting offensive line, plus let's just throw safety Jonathan Abram in there as well. So man, all of those guys were just placed on the covid nineteen list again doesn't mean any of them tested positive. I was actually told that none of them. But as part of the protocols they have to selfies late for five days. Another other source told me that they've been doing virtual preparation. In case they can indeed get cleared play against the buccaneers in the meanwhile, it was supposed to be a big Sunday night football game. Yes. The League wanted to make sure that that game actually happens. So they bumped the raiders out of their move Seattle in Arizona into that spot. So a game will happen well, guess what if you guys I just mentioned you consistently Test negative on their Cova test the rest of the week and then again Sunday. Morning will then they'll be cleared to play. But at what time? Sunday morning Oh. Yeah. kickoffs at one o'clock. So the backstory all that as well. I gotTA catch my breath here when I started figure this out understandably. Yeah. They on their fifty three man roster. They currently have five backup offensive lineman. That's WHO's been trodden. They've been trying out there in practice every day. That's who Derek Carr has been had protecting him. That's who Josh Jacobs has been trying to run holes through those five guys plus they also have two guys on the practice squad that they could suit up if need be. So as we sit here right now on on Thursday late afternoon the raiders starting offensive line is anchored by Andre James and if you need to know who that is I got a couple of media guides for you can look about. Paul Creek me. If I'm wrong here, but I believe this is the very first case of an entire position group being taken down by cove like I know that we've had players here and there. You put on this list but in terms of the magnitude of what the raiders are facing with the offensive line, this feels extreme. Yeah. An and it's part of the protocol. Really. Because only one guy really has tested positive but it's out of the abundance of caution which we've heard a lot of since since the pandemic hit right you've got to self isolate you gotta make sure you don't test positive or show any symptoms, and even if you don't show any symptoms, still self isolate because you could be symptomatic. It's just very bizarre. It's a strange world we're living in Derek Carr said this week that you know he's been with the team for seven years seen a lot of weird things. He's this is the weirdest thing he's ever seen and it's worth noting like weird is by no means foreign to this organization even within this context I mean, I still need help Paul disentangling what exactly happened for instance with Jon Gruden their head coach who took an approach to corona virus with the team earlier this year that had me confused the media confused, and then ultimately Jon Gruden himself pretty angry at everybody. Yeah. So beginning at Camp, we show up in a media member. We have to test every day just to get in I have fifty two on my belt. All negative so far, which is a good thing Jon gruden passes out t shirts to the media with there waiting for us as we walk in the media room that say crush the virus because I was going to be his mantra he took issue with the NFL network reporting that he faked having the virus but yet kind of just went away then on the home opener on. Monday night football when he later would get fine for not wearing his mask properly, he brings it up himself and says that he never faked the virus it as a matter of fact, he did have it. So he talked about just how it was not fun. It made him feel bad and this is all before training camp. When he said he he went through this and beat it in in that. He has the utmost respect for it and he still wants to crush it in beat it into the ground like it was some sort of opponent.
Fantasy Football Forecast: One BIG THING you should know for every Week 2 matchup
"I sit out the way New Orleans versus Las Vegas raters. We saw New Orleans showcase really really solid, really great defensive performance against Tom. Brady and the buccaneers They were pretty on disappointed as a team, lot of penalties on their defensive side of the front. The saints rebel to take advantage of that. La Raiders played against the Carolina Panthers last week and gave up thirty points. It's very possible that New Orleans doesn't look as Resi as they did against a really solid defensive front in Tampa. Bay and they might have their way with a raiders team that is still kind of pretty young and trying to get their footing and all this stuff. They don't they had an injury to majority of their wide receivers in the last game. So Dan, Waller seems to be their only solid option. At the receiving side of things that might mean there in Waller's uptick in target's share and my means, he gets an ends on this year or this week maybe something good happens for him I'm buying all the stock now I'm Kamara right now for this game, this should be Alvin Kamara. KAMERA's two touchdown, a hundred yards from scrimmage plus game. This is this is the one I wouldn't see why would be any otherwise and to be quite frank. I think that a lot of players on seem to have a really big game and this would be a really fun game to see trae Kwan Smith. I'm going to bring them up again. This'll be a fun game Trey Smith. Look to be a solid. Relieving game just for brevity and sake of saving saints, fans of fantasy fans alike, some worry as to what the saints offense can look like without Michael Thomas Soaking up a lot of the defensive pressure. All right. So Fancy implications all over the place you know Josh Jacobs. This could be a really good test to see just how much they believe in Josh Jacobs as a pass catcher because I don't know how much he's going to be able to do in the run game considering New Orleans is when had and still does on one of the better run defenses in all the football. I think the best game. Pound for pound this week has to be the night game on NBC, where New England is playing against Seattle that they're going to be playing in Seattle New England the we have a kind of banged up cam and she says it's the there's no hamstring issue but. Of Most people are saying that he does, Kinda. Have a little bit of a hamstring thing going on and we'll see how that affects him with all read option stuff and what we saw from last Sunday's performance maybe we started to see cam throw a little bit more, and then we can really see just what this doing his offense really has to offer for them sure that bill will have them ready for whatever and we saw sea hawks offense that basically let Russell Wilson do what people have been asking. Them to let Russell. Wilson do for basically the majority of the back half of the dense. You know twenty seventeen was to let Russ Cook and Cook did Russell Wilson? Do He only missed four passes? He had A. Great amount of yardage great touchdown passes de que look. Nice at times he did have some drops of course, Tyler Lockett looked really good. Chris Carson looked amazing. In the past game. We had some really good screens run in for touchdowns. They got tight ends involved the plethora tight ends at the seahawks own and their defense was literally flying around all over the place. Now, there are a lot of garbage time touchdown stuff in that Falcons game that I'm not GonNa hold against the defense when it mattered. Jamal Adams and of course. Everybody else in that defense just looked phenomenal. They just looked physical. They looked like they were flying around and making plays they look very formidable as team very formidable. So. That is a game as the May have a lot of implemented implications on things so KEEP IN MIND I think one of the better secondaries in the League is New England's granted they played against. The, dolphins but they did not allow that many receptions or receiving yards at all for either receiver on the dolphins and Tyler Lockett, and care very athletic fast guys but. It's going to be tough. Is GonNa be a tough about we'll see what happens. They may have to change up the strategy of leading Russ Cook for this game in particular and work through the old tried and true run the ball and try to make something happen later on in the game. But for US Russell Wilson owners like myself I hope they just let him throw the ball a little bit more that'd be nice. That would be fun I think we'd all like to enjoy that. So moving on towards another game I think the Baltimore Game at four, twenty, five eastern standard time on CBS is going to be a good one, Baltimore versus Houston. This game can go I think Houston is a team that kid look Jacqueline Hyde and they've been jekyll and Hyde ever since the Shawn Watson is come on that team and. Not Sage. It's the Sean played bad last Thursday. But he definitely did not look comfortable one hundred percent of the time and you just was trying to make plays. His offensive line wasn't there fully stout at all and when it was time to just throw throw throw things Kinda got out of hand for Houston Houston can't be a team that gets to behind too quickly or else it is going to be nightmarish for the offensive line. And it's going to be a bad day for Shawn Watson even though he can make miracles happen at will while Samour's in perfect position to take on a team that showcase bad tackling display. So this is a team. So if this is the time where you want to be like, okay JK Dobbins, he didn't have that many targets but hey, he got two touchdowns in is the time to test out the JK Dobbins is going to be. The album? Kamara. To Marketing Rooms Mark Ingram. So we'll see what happens here Lamar he this seem doesn't tackle well, Lamar could have himself a anywhere closer to forty to fifty yards rushing easily against this team if he wants it, and of course, Mark Andrews is a guy who I would think would eat very well against the Houston team that allowed drivers Kelsey to get like five catches in the first half with ease marched up and down the field with ease Look to see how David Johnson looks in his second bout. David Johnson had a nice surprise of a Comeback Week one performance that a lot of people were speculating was possible and he delivered for the most part. So that was encouraging for many people to go ahead and see so I wouldn't. Put it past him to do it once again. That's really really against the I think that Brandin cooks is still a bit. So that would not be. Great for folks owners. And I would be looking at anybody who has. Willie snead Willie snead was all over the place last week and it was almost to a shocking amount of how much willie snead was dependent on and I said Willie snead. That was not who I meant to say I meant to say will fuller will fuller will around the field for the Texans last week and I would like to see him continue that stretch because that would be. Pretty awesome to be completely honest. I. Would like to see a will fuller healthy and showcasing that he is here to stay in this league and thus it would not make me feel nearly as bad for short.

"Because that seems to enjoyable for both of you so have to have this verified. By by outside source by someone who has no note nothing to gain in this except my pain. So Josh One week one. Of the year but he did start the season right and he did it with Greg. Olsen which is impressive. I don't know if any of us can top that. I. Don't know if we could top that but because he is our winner from last week, we'll start for the not. So obvious lock of the week who do you have for week two Josh Well okay. I. I had Russell Gauge circled on my list this I'm thinking that's probably not allowed. I mean, anything is allowed. It's just how you know how do you WanNa be basically to the listeners right I feel like if I go with Russell gauge their I probably and dealing with some pretty high expectations. A. What about Zach Moss? Can I get away with asking? Moss. All right. 'cause months for we do. Okay. So you've taken Zach Moss. Adams yet. Just no explanation as to why we're just going to like throw a name out there and what is your ultimate reason for Zach loss? He number eleven running back expected points in week one and I just don't really I don't believe anything in. Devon Single Terry and also Josh Allen was way up there like all of the bills players just. Apparently, the numbers are telling me that this offense is going to be good. And you pleased he plays the dolphins next week. Yeah. So I'm okay with that Josh, moving away from tight end I don't know. Regrettable I. Kind of want to see if he could. You know repeat back to back some tight ends, but he wasn't out for that. That's good took. A Little Logan Thomas Action Maybe, you should do it Adam. I mean Logan Thomas is going to be phenomenal, but he's not going to be my lock of the week. that. That I'm saving for love that I've had much longer than low than Thomas, a man who Might not be a man at all. You might you might be a star child. Might. Be might be an alien a months. Sammy Watkins is no joke is and he you led the Kansas City chiefs in targets by fifty percent margin no less Scott's and he repeated as the week one hero of fantasy football as you wasn't twenty nineteen and. I think this time it might actually be here to stay guy me I'm crazy I might be I understand that but he looked healthy. He looked Chris he looked like he was running routes very efficiently and a Patrick mahomes offense. I always want pieces and Sammy Watkins is the piece that no one wants to touch and you know what Sami. I'll be your huckleberry and having there's so many wire receivers in Kansas City like demarcus Robinson has his moments. Hardman has his moments nine and talking about Tyreek Kale. All these other guys like us, both I I I, respect them. It's it's it's a good. It's a good office to get a piece of in the not so obvious lock of the week, and we know it's been a long term love for you. So this is not some you know bandwagon reaction from you. So I respected Josh thoughts on Him Picking Sammy Watkins. It's the only thing that speaks against it is just the Jamie Watkins does this you know and that's not a real thing. Any other player comes out and does this and we're we're all over him I like we're all on T. Logan. Thomas. For All and team Russell Gauge but Sammy Watkins does you know more and how it Sammy? Watkins maybe maybe Sammy Watkins should get a little bit of credit for being You know a new player on a new team. Last year. So. Are. You saying not enough people believing Sammy Watkins Josh. Well I don't really believe in Sammy Watkins. I applaud those to do. Okay. Respect respect to him. Respect. Your applause. I'm actually GONNA go with a long-term love of my own. except minds are running back. Can either one of you guessing my long-term love is who I have. One, hundred percent confidence and Who is Not Sure I'm not sure he wants to steal your thunder. Thunder all episode, I mean. Let me let go talking about Derek McInnes. Damn you damn you. Derby Canaan is back. He's back boys scored a touchdown last week he seemed to eat up to Jetson week to. This and I don't know how anyone can't be excited about Jerry McCain at this point like my guys a baller he's a baller he's back he's healthy. This offense and team believes in him they need them. Jerick McKinnon is my not so obvious lock of the Week Adam I dare you to say something negative. Say I mean it's the forty niners against the jets the forty niners. pissed after phasing the cardinals who really actually showed up on defense last week and only get to go against the worst of the NFL I mean they're going to roll. So yeah similar to how getting of the Kansas City offense is good any week getting the peace of began or getting a piece in the San Francisco offense going up against the jets is a great move and I mean from what we saw they do your McKinnon to be utilized I mean to me he's probably going to be a ten touch guy but ten touches against the jets is probably Venezuela. Hey listen I'm trying to take a week to victory. I need an early victory like Josh. I can't go weeks in a drought SR getting crazy and desperate and..

"Host of the clock dodgers podcast, and we wanted to bring you something different today for clock dodgers podcast. We're going to add this to the arsenal of other things we do besides our interviews with guests besides our our discussion than conversations and debates with each other I wanted to create these episodes that standalone on themselves. They're somewhat of a player profiler player projection player. Outlook however, you want to however you WanNa take you basically and what we'll do is we'll chop up a player each week and we'll do how they fared last year what's changed for this upcoming season and how we kind of project them out what I want to do with I want to start with a player who I don't WanNa? Say Divisive. But he's a player who's kind of but it's been questioned been had had a high expectation put on him and at the same time you don't feel like you'll hit those expectations and has Josh Jacobs He's talked about just as much this off season as he was last season when he was drafted as a rookie for the. Raiders at the time now, the Las Vegas raters which will we'll get into because I. believe variables matter that even are the ones that cannot be quantified or put into a data spreadsheet. I believe they do matter, and you know that's part of the difference here. I know not a lot of policies or the data analytics group agree or like. To bring those kinds of things into the equation when they can't really put it on a spreadsheet respect that at school is just not how I do things when I'm when I'm breaking down players kind of project mouth. So just Jacobs talk about really quick what he did last year to kind of create a foundation here Josh Jacobs last season had. One thousand one hundred fifty rushing yards almost five yard average four point eight to be accurate and seven touchdowns came out to he only played thirteen games last season due to injuries, and so we got this guy who you know he did pretty good right He was a rookie running back. So just from a perspective of how people felt the they they they were impressed with what he did but at the same time, a lot of people of other was underwhelming offer. Some people a kind of began that began to confirm AK. This is why you don't draft running backs in the first round they don't last that long. So they are valued doesn't carry very well, and then when you consider if they have under woman seasons or have injuries or anything like that, like, was he a difference maker to your team? How how how do you feel about that? If you washed Oakland's games last year if you wash the raiders games last year, you know Josh Jacobs was the difference maker was very, very apparent that he chains at entire offense and in terms of teams have to respect the backfield and as having a running back who could actually be productive actually a yards every time he touches the ball actually be a monster, right? So if you watch the game. And I. Know some people don't like to look at Games. Exactly. How players play they look at the numbers if you watch Josh Akers play, you know he's a talented writer back. There is no question about it right now what comes in you know for again for last year the raiders did not do so well as a team you know their. Record wasn't well, they didn't make the playoffs they dealt with injuries across the board You know most feel that just over all it wasn't a great season for Oakland. It wasn't a way for the team to to leave the city of Oakland. So I'm sure they didn't feel great about that Josh, Jacobs if you just look at him. By himself right. Seven touchdowns. That's a decent amount of touchdowns are running back in the season. He had good average. Know some don't care so much about an average for know per carry but he he had a pretty good one. You went over a thousand yards, which is always nice and any I like to mention that you know he played. Thirteen games last year. Now, what people are going to you know the main, the main concern that analysts hidden that fans hit with with Jacobs's he didn't catch the ball he didn't catch the ball enough He had twenty receptions last year for only one, hundred, sixty, six yards, zero touchdowns. So he hears this this is your major sticking point for Josh Jacobs. Most people believe in Josh Jacobs talent at the he's not too shabby. They liked team that he's on because they feel like you know he is the workhorse but then to put him in a category where I would like to see him for most Franken's they feel like, where's the receiving stats an elite back who especially PR scorn one of the elite backs where he's being drafted ADP you want a guy who can catch the Ball, and clearly the numbers dictate that he didn't catch the ball out last year and you know he didn't scoring touchdowns doing. So there wasn't a lot of yards there, and so it left a lot to be desired for Josh Jacobs as receiver out of the backfield. No question about it nobody would argue that nobody would disagree with that. The rookie had a tough. Time catching the ball whether again, a question of this being his fault. The team's fault is something for us to look at as far as how project out in what's changed and whatnot But I think for in my opinion for a rookie season, those are solid numbers If you watch the games, you know he's talented if you wash the games and you look. At the numbers here you know he's the workhorse back for Oakland So so last year pretty good not too bad of a rookie year Jon, gruden fell he should have rookie of the year I mean, that's how well he played for the raiders and of course I know it's his coach and everything but it it is true. He did really good for the raiders. Now. Okay we know what he's done. Right we know who he was. We know how he produced. We know what the the glaring witness was, which was the receiving. Let's talk about what's changed for Josh Jacobs. Just in this upcoming season alone we have the team move into Las Vegas. Again, a variable that I do not ignore because I do believe news new stadium, right monstrous stadium new, aura about yourselves, new city to represent in new fans other than the old fans are gone but you now you do add Las Vegas fans just is what is new fans a new place a new story line everything is new here everything is fresh. Fresh new locker room. You got all these leak in toilets and all this crap. You feel good when you walk into work everyday and that does matter anyone who's listening right now says where they walk into work everyday doesn't matter you're lying. So mental state definitely improved right now we got a guy second year in a system. The coaches have not changed So his second year system will get to further along his development in the system that matters. So now two years Jon Gruden, we have a new stadium new new city new energy His quarterback has stayed the same. That is important as well. His receivers have changed a lot a lot. The raiders for the most part last year did not have a wide receiver you cared about the much You just did it. There was just nothing there was very undesirable location for wide receivers last year. And this year they drafted Henry Rugs. they drafted Brian Edwards who if you're if you're paying any attention to training camp if you care at all about training camp if you care about the offseason talk, if you.

"It's interesting you know you talk about the move with the chargers and the rams and everything and I remember miles and I were at a game in Los Angeles with the chargers playing the raiders. And then you see this blimp flying overhead that has the scientists basically like Fu. You spanos arena. It didn't quite recall what it said but the words were not kind and you have to wonder like even talking about distractions like you for the players at a looking at this kind of stuff was the warming up and thinking. Wow these guys hate us. If only they would've put that kind of energy towards the vote rather than securing a blimp or whatever it was playing you know. Maybe they would have still had their team. I sorry about that but just to say it so when you look at over I mean. There's all kinds of things that can happen throughout the season obviously You know but I think right now for a lot of fans for the raiders have been in Los Angeles. This is kind of a good thing for them now. They're able to come a little bit closer to be able to see the raiders. Play in Las Vegas so I haven't heard quite as much backlash yet. I mean. Obviously there's going to be people who are in Oakland. Have still troubles dealing with the team? Come into Las Vegas. You know I don't see necessarily that there's GonNa be a hard transition that way. It's a it's Vegas as a destination city. I think a lot of people come to and there was a three year. Walk up to this show fans In in the bay area or or whoever was you know wanted them staying Oakland and are hurt but they're not had three years to absorb it in to deal with it and wrap their arms around it and and you know rectify Y You know as individuals whereas in Saint Louis was like boom. You're teams gone and see a letter. And and same thing in San Diego January twelfth twenty sixteen twenty seventeen. The chargers announced that they're moving and months later they're gone So that's a little bit different dynamic for those teams. Then is for the raiders who again had three years to say goodbye to Oakland and and And Yeah you're right. There's a lot of fans in Los Angeles and the southern California area that are going to support the raiders whether I season ticket holders. We've seen that. The numbers are pretty good in Los Angeles and Southern California For the season tickets same with Oakland moves. There's people that are remaining fans of the raiders. And they're gonNA make the trip to Las Vegas as you said. That's a great destination. Said we all know that So that certainly certainly helps. The San Diego thing was just weird because San Diego has always looked at or had a thing about Los Angeles. It's just it's not reverse like Los Angeles San Diego who doesn't WanNa go to San Diego with beaches everything it's a great city to go to whereas there's a thing with San Diego and Los Angeles so the charges probably couldn't have moved to a worst place if you're a San Diego Fan even though it's just a couple of hour drive but it's a place that people there's just this thing that goes on between San Diego and Los Angeles more from San Diego toward Los Angeles and so those fans just said nope not going to be a part of it and don't want to be a fan and and that's really hurt the charges loot seen that Whereas the raiders. I think are going to carry over a lot of Oakland fans. I would think I wouldn't WANNA be on. I fifteen on Sunday afternoons at like six o'clock. I think that's going to be a mess not to figure out our transportation by other means but we will still keep you posted here on everything happening at the NFL combine in Indianapolis the rest of this week.

NFL Week 8 Monday Night Football Betting Picks: Miami Dolphins at Pittsburgh Steelers
"Welcome in to the the board podcast powered by Fox bet week eight Monday night football edition dolphins steelers y'all are pretty excited for which would be a barn burner of a football game I'm your host firm joined by my colleague coast the one the only pain insider lots of enthusiasm I'm trying pain I'm not a premature whistle blower like we saw in Nashville but I still haven't positive mindsets get this thing going believe it you can achieve it and it wasn't the results were looking for either the college or professional football rain six but we persevere we continue to plow ahead and no we have a long season left in front of us so as we do every Monday we'll start the good the bad and the ugly we of course Dr Chow waiting in the wings to break down what the JJ watt injury means for the Houston Texans and he'll update us and some of our favorite quarterbacks the pain. Let's go glass half full what did you see this weekend that had you excited and brimming with optimism where do we start so much Scott the forty niners because I always leave things are more impressive when prior to the game it's not supposed to look that way so we a significant professional money come in on Carolina so it makes the win even more impressive to me personally because I just feel like they exceeded expectation and I managed and I think we both did here right to avoid this game now we dead value is certainly on Carolina like numbers wise right when you look at the number got six six and a half earlier in the week like Mason Rudolph was catching that same number in his first start ever on the road so value is I get it but I think we talked Thursday which is like a horrific matchup right Carolina doesn't have left tackle Bosa continues to like full-blown just eat out there I think he's got the highest pressure rate he's on pace to set the highest pressure rate for any rookie in NFL history right now kyle kind of talked about this the one above it average pass defense he played he struggled against earlier in the season which was Jacksonville the forty niners would obviously be even tougher than that he was the most inaccurate quarterback in terms of completion percentage expectation of sixteen percent below expectations the worst so far this week and we saw that at there wasn't very good can't stop the run we talked about that Cohen Short once he went out for the season and there was a big check mark there offensively from what I'm what I'm seeing from the forty niners is is Kyle Shanahan is just ahead of his time with what he's doing even though it's very basic right it's I think he's in this concerts jokingly kind of the real inventor of the exotic smashmouth right the ball is just like spread around there's all these interchangeable parts wide receivers are getting handoffs but like at its core it's very simple offense and I think the scary part here todd is like you look or seven and no right now in the NFC but they're without their left tackle there without the right tackle there without their versatile full-back call us check and I think I could wrong about this and it's probably not worth the money was paid but I feel like Jimmy G. has another gear that we haven't seen yet either which makes this forty-nine seem really scary well and I think some of that's got to be by design if you're Kyle Shanahan why reveal all your cards when you don't have to right now and then there's no doubt that Jimmy G. High profile passing attack is somewhere there I imagine as they can can you to build chemistry with Emmanuel Sanders able to get into the end zone and his forty niners debut it makes his team even scarier and I know pain we don't talk a lot about futures here because guys don't have access turn prices and you Never WanNa do hyperbole but right now when you look at the NFC or the forty niners the team to beat the more complete package outside of experience levels than the New Orleans saints tough to you obviously love with the saints are doing especially defensively that front seven has really taken another step I do feel like whoever gets home field advantage because the saints home field advantage so massive you'd give the you'd leaned that way with ever team had home field advantage certainly the games get a little bit tougher here in the next few weeks off for the forty niners so we'll see what they're made of but man ah X. still kind of leaned saints especially if they were the team that got home field advantage going to be interesting NFC playoff picture definitely a number of teams on their best day more than capable of putting up crooked numbers and more importantly getting stops on the defensive side but aside from the forty niners pain or are there any other teams and our individual performances that really stood out to you Daniel Jones right if you're a giants fan you have to pretty encouraged in whether you could've met seventeen or six I mean that's it's kind of a relevant at this point you know and I liked I saw accuracy wise again delivered a completion percentage five and a half percent greater than expectations four touchdowns no picks and I think that that last part there with the no picks is really impressive when you look at how aggressive he was six most aggressive quarterback in week eight so far obviously two games tonight but of all the quarterbacks that have played so far six most aggressive and the other thing is when you look at how he's doing it right now in general young quarterback he's been pressured a shit ton right forty six percent of its drawbacks pressured on the season most in the NFL among qualifying quarterbacks and he's this young young he hasn't flinched yet so I I really like I think you have to be happy for your giants fan of what the future could be with Daniel Jones so fantastic performance although in a loss did did get back door there so I know a lot of giants backers were happy that was the sharp side again closed five and a half some places so Daniel Jones got the pros money and look good again that he did one ill advised throw cost him dearly early in the game came back up the fumble yeah it was the fumble that probably could have gone I mean you it's a turnover no matter how you slice it but interception fumble just not sure he's doing it to throw but for anybody to watch that game was interesting there was a bad penalty at the tail end of the first half where the giants allegedly rough the ultimate leads the three for the lions and changed the dynamic a little bit in that context wonder if the giants would have actually had a chance to win that game outright if things had played differently but for alliance do nothing but bad luck I guess they wrote a break or two in that extra appointments made things a little wonky to some of the decision making it the nail to me how to chase a two and it's one of those things where you just start chasing points and you open that Pandora's box and if you don't convert things continue to create that downward spiral but a good performance from Daniel Jones you mentioned his second career game over three hundred yards four touchdowns then a nice job against a depleted lions secondary with the good I want to add one other into it of course it was in a losing effort Mike Evans yet again puts up Gargantuan numbers eleven catches hundred ninety eight yards and two touchdowns but one of those things that I'm not quite sure why the bucks don't look for Evans and crunch time when he was the stat stuffer all game long and the titans apparently had no answer in their secondary starting to get doubled a little bit dried movement of the slot to get them open and got doubled again so you know he had forty four percent of the buccaneers area are gesture die but obviously not enough however no you want to praise him and you probably didn't turn on the game quick enough but he did have the bad drop on the opening drive in the end zone the bucks were forced to settle for three instead of seven I did I did see that drop bring it up I do want to ask you about that when you throw through a little bit of congestion I know Matt Melons in your hands catch the ball all right so I wanted to find out so you your opinion is now well documented around Mike Evans if you're going to be elite God damn elite all right so that that's where I'm going with it was just really annoying game not going to complain right side wrong result and you go into halftime with the two hundred fifteen yards seventy one yard edge you trail that's a problem and then I thought we were gold right you fight your way back you blow you get up six late in the third quarter and then you know you hope officials can do their job good for Devon white by the way rookie did a fantastic job there sniff out fake laid to feel them out it was like a WWF and I believe they're wwe now but I'm old so wwf like a clothesline he just sent the snapper into orbit there in the all clearly comes out its return for a touchdown of course they blow their whistle so you can't you can't review it and it was a turnover on downs anyways because it was fourth down so said of a seven air when bucks up three with under Ford ago we were still down four in the problem is that you know you're not gonna your situation where it's four down territory or not kicking field goal to cover the spread for the good guys chase kicked to feel go forty eight yarder right through the UPRIGHTS two minutes to go get outta dodge with a one point loss single text bruce and eh lepers no team bet the board it's all about covering the number not winning games outraged good guy might have done it now if the good come the bad and this one is tough for me to kind of put down pain because I think they were very good for three quarters but it's the kind of game that you have to win on the road you're at the tail end of it's been a mammoth road trip the Oakland raiders finishing the game against Houston Texans were nearly two yards per play better as far as net is concerned and you look they did give up some penalty yards and everything else they had the football a lot less but they had an excellent chance to win the game on the road they outscored in the fourth quarter and to Shawn Watts and make some let real place to get the Texans the outright victory Deshaun Watson in Hopkins it's like the Russell Wilson Lockwood combination those two geysers like carrying goddamn franchise right now because Bill Brian is just continues to be a mess anyways I hate being singular play guy but you're one and you have a chance to kind of I don't WanNa say ice the game with your offense but certainly go up eight or if you decided to be a savage go for the to to put it up nine and there is a plan like second and six from the Houston twenty four in Gruden calls a run play and you'll lose a yard and now you're backed up to third wall and then you Veasley incomplete there and and you settle for a field goal only go for I love Josh Jacobs but the Texans Defense is superior against the run than it is pass in the Texans secondary isn't link absolute shambles with injuries right and they were down another starter who got injured in the game and as an offense you got tyrone Williams back and Jones who you trade four finally like kind of got into the fold now that he understands the offense after you were healthy as you've been at receiver like virtually all season attack the weakness man put it in the air instead then do that in that one specific drive could've put him up potentially two scores if they'd went for two and you rely on your defense against Watson and you got burn so to me there is some some mismanagement there was some playcalling late in that game as you kind of alluded to but they did blow sure well you mentioned mismanagement pain and it's funny you use such a word choice where do we want to go to Chicago bears and how they handled their performance against the chargers so I didn't watch the game because I couldn't dedicate enough time to it I'm GonNa go back and actually watch today it's one of those games that was really intriguing to me because guys that uh yeah I work with love the charger so much and they with the chargers plus four and a half and plus four I didn't see it so when there's games that's where my guys like adamant that this is the side and I don't see it myself on my I gotTa really pay close attention to this and because I have add I can't do that with like watching games so two one on and watch today but as I'm like tracking the play by play and now that I'm like looking at the data we just download it charges were not decide and we had this debate all week long and you may see something different but the charges were not decide but I'll let you share what you saw from the data I mean I'm just looking at just like two hundred and thirty one total yards of offense in the year two thousand nineteen on the road and you're only getting what would have been like three point two closing number I don it doesn't look like just by all the data that that was the right side

"AM G driving performance top of the hour. I got some interesting information about USC. They need an athletic director. Maybe they'll need the head coach now. Try to connect the dots here a little bit from some information. I got yesterday also the NFL in negotiations right now the contract contract the TV contract got information on that. You know that seventeen game schedule. Maybe it's more of a possibility than we think think he's yes. I have that for you and I found out yesterday that Antonio Brown is not going to be put on the Commissioner's exempt list for this game coming up this weekend officially or well source source told me that he's not going to be on the commissioner's exempt list unless something comes up you the situation as as we stand now that he will be playing against well. I don't know if he's going to be playing. He's expected to play. He's going to be eligible to play from what I was told old last night that he's not going to be put on the Commissioner's exempt list all right Cam Newton last night after the loss and you know he he's a fashion icon in the NFL. He's wearing things that maybe we'll be wearing a couple years down the road but fritzy had an interesting take on Cam Newton's post game press conference wardrobe and Fritzy. If you'd like to share that and then we can discuss okay. I'll preface it by saying I'm a Cam Newton Fan however now now now. We don't want to do just so. It's not taking personal but then you then you. He doesn't care he doesn't care. I think it will get back to them and said he'd what what did he. What fritzy said that Oh my instinct when I when I when I see him all dressed up we always ruin. Our point won't be say hey. I'm a huge fan of but okay and then you're gonna rip but that if you go the the other way because you don't like them. That's why you're saying no way either way. No you're fine with him because the broncos crushed him in the Super Bowl so you don't care did help now. He beat the broncos. Then people might say yeah. You don't like him because you beat the Broncos. Is He still doing the dad because that's kind of old. Ari Go ahead when I see someone camera dressed up after game in a kind of flamboyant clothes whereas a fancy Hatton who knows how expensive that scarf was my instinct fair or not as you know we wanted to worry about more about winning than how you're looking and that was just when I saw the press conference I found myself less listening to say more like really is still going to wear that that wild stuff in a loss. That's just Emma saying fair or not. That's the first thing entered my mind but you think in those fifteen minutes took him to pick out those clothes I think even if even if it means packing and extra bag or stuffing nothing some extra things. Oh you think he should be a winning outfit in a losing that would be a lot more appropriate what he wore if the panthers had one and if he was in the losing effort I dial it down. Paulie has question so you're bothered that he would take time to think about his outfit but you want him to spend more time to think about a second outfit and the second outfit is around losing the a game which means I'm GonNa plan to both win and lose this game as I'm packing my bag is. That's what you're suggesting well. It was a home game so he could have had enough to karat anyway he and his lock. Let's go back to my the point you you're saying he should think about the possibility of losing the game and what to wear and Casey loses is what you're saying is that I think if he's thinking about you know being flamboyant and one everyone to check out his his wild looking clothes he could take a second to be like how would this be perceived. You know for me to be wearing all this loud stuff after a loss to take a second would not. It'd be a troubling thing for him to do yes boy. Do you not like what he wore because it's not appealing to you fashion wise and it's not really in our demographic your demographic if Tom Brady put on a seven thousand dollars suit and a seven thousand dollar pair of sunglasses would you and they lost the game. Would you critique Tom. Brady for his high end fashion choices for me. It's not the High Ryan faster and it's not the cost of the suits to me is different than you know rainbow colored hats and so it's the fashion choices yeah but but again if I have no problem with they want I can wink at that for some reason it it done by a little bit in a in a losing effort to maybe just take it away from you know what you're wearing but are you bothered by how how it looks not how much it costs but just as it look outlandish and you just lost a game. Is that it. It looks outlandish. It bothers me because they lost. I teach their own with what they what they want to wear. I didn't care but one you're okay with him wearing yeah because stretchy stuff a little bit he's threatened his feathers like a peacock one and it's just the fact that he's wearing something think still that loud and wild in a loss and I just I kinda tuned out what he was saying and yes and he took it upon himself that they lost. It was like really going to go all mclovin. Am I imagine imagine I feel like Brady has rushed out in sweatshirt after a loss before and kept his nice outfit on the sideline I could be or maybe even got out in uniform. I wonder if Brady's ever alternated with a win loss. I understand it but I don't think you. WanNa have a losing outfit like I. I don't think you go. That's my winning outfit. That's my losing of it. That's not a way to go into the locker room prior to again. What if you're playing at Arrowhead or something like this looks bad beer. I I'm with Fritzy like I. I don't think thank you lost. You want to wear your highest fashion out. There are times when I was on football night in America and Tony Dungy would look at Cam Newton and hopefully. I'm not speaking out of school too much here but he'd you'd go. You can't dress like that. After a performance like that like you kind of go in and you you know you just WanNa get through the you know the tedious tedious this nature of those press conference just get out without it being like he's talking about losing or not playing well and this is how he's dressed so I understand you know the optics optics of this but I don't think you can have a winning outfit and losing outfit. Yalcin is this serious when he was really a topic. Don't look so you can't look good after loss. You have to look bad. Oh No it's flamboyant. If your definition or or not you but like people's definition of flamboyant it's all subjective like he just looks good. There are times when there are things that he has on like. You'll have a hat his fedora. I get looks looks. It looks out of context of you just lost a game in the way he looks in there so I think it's just I understand what fritzy saying but not even saying that what Campbell I like how he dresses i. He's bowled his personal. It's like Russell Westbrook same thing but I think when you lose news and you're saying those things dress like that then it kind of stands out efforts and I'm not even saying an entirely different outfit with picking out a losing outfit you know you don't want to have that in in your psyche but maybe for the scarf in Edison questions and ten minutes ago. You said you should have two outfits one for winning and not enough uh. I think there's something about the scarf. Maybe that was much. I'm not saying you have to have head to toe a completely different losers outfit to where but for a second if I'm him like before I go aalto closet. He should come out in Zubaydah's pants then and look like a winner. I don't think it's that extreme saying we're where everything you're wearing but maybe lose the scar. That's I'm saying you can't help but notice what his outfits are social media phenomenon and I think he loves it like everybody lives making jokes like he looked like Susan Sarandon in the last scene when she drives off the car last night Thelma and Louise Louise Yeah that was like the big viral more endings to share the same. He definitely is is outfits. I I know faster but he's so they're very interesting and but he has so much faith. Their outfits are certainly far more interesting when you win yes I. It's not the time to have fun with your into and twelve percent of teams startling to end. They lost both games at home. Don't make the playoffs so you know maybe the other six because as you got plenty of time to run around wearing flamboyant but I don't I I wa there's holes in your logic here where you said have a winning outfit and losing one and I'd rather he was spending more time on the football game than picking on his Panthers Fan and I see that I'm like you know. I wouldn't worry about the game we're into and we have almost no chance. What would you say the same exact thing thing about. Tom Brady's outfit which looks like he's on the cover of G. Q. Almost every Sunday or after the post game he has his Alpha probably cost fifty thousand dollars camps but it's it's a more traditional style. Is Tom. Brady not focused. I think Andrew of brought up I think there have been times on the rare occasion that the Patriots those that'll do. He's been a little disheveled in a Laura. I'm talking about if you lose how you should spending time thinking about your outfit Michael. Jordan spent a lot of time thinking about his outfits. He was well dressed arrest. He dressed like a million dollars literally sometimes after games. I don't think he got critiqued. I'm talking about what you're wearing after a loss especially in a situation where there's a good chance you're not making the playoffs with fourteen games still to play so maybe just dress like Joe FLACCO or case keenum same thing about any bronco after a lot. I don't need to see your how cool your clothes are. You lost. You should look a little disheveled. The broncos always bring two outfits in case they win in the way Odell. Beckham says he's not talking about as watch anymore..

"The raiders rookie running back. Josh Jacobs coming up here in a moment. Paulie said he had a mind blowing not literally no okay mind-blowing Stat off last night's Game Cam Newton. We're talking about four th and one last night Cam Newton. His career was fourteen of seventeen in fourth and one rushing attempts in his career eighty two two percent. That's the best in the League the best including Tom Brady if you include third and one and fourth in one Cam Newton his career is eighty two of ninety two attemps uh-huh eighty nine point one percent that's by far the best of anybody in the NFL including running backs like Zeke Elliott in Adrian and Peterson. Tom Brady is eighty three percent on third and one fourth and one camnews eighty nine percent he is the single best fourth down and one third down in one running back in the NFL L. including running back or quarterback in the NFL. I know that we are results oriented business and and we looked at Christian McCaffrey running out of bounds on that play a you know he's GonNa look at that tape and he's going to go. I should have just cut. I could've cut back. He I think he made it and he was trying to outrun Tampa's defense instead of looking at what they were giving him and could have scored a touchdown. They're a lot easier than trying to beat everybody because you know what out of balance is. Is You know that's your friend if you're Tampa's defense if I push him to out of bounds then cut him off and I've got the angle on him but if he cuts up he scores a touchdown I. I still thought that Cam was going to get the ball I did. I this guy got the ball in the first week of the season scored a couple of touchdowns. He's Josh Jacobs Raiders running back back Josh Good Morning. How are you the morning I'm good. How are you did you get the game bowl I wouldn't necessarily say that Checkbook Oscar. Oh Okay so you got the game balls all right What did you think of your debut. I think I did all right a lot of yards on the table so it's a lot of things that I came into this week's practice with my set wise. It's a week now you played it Alabama so you're playing against guys who were future. NFL players but what was the big difference that you've found playing in the NFL NFL in your first week as opposed to plan in a big game with Alabama just that people are a lot smarter. speed is a little bit faster but it's really just a smart the guys in the NFL who surprised you the most. I always say von Miller what what surprised you about von Miller a lot of moves that he likes to the low-key fast fast as you know about that one okay all right. Did he talk. Do you yeah he was talking a little bit. He'll talk transporter so well. Did you say anything back not as laugh uh-huh. I just laugh funny to me when I watched hard knocks I. How did I not see on hard knocks very much. was that on purpose yeah actually as a Mike to not put me on so why am I really. I really didn't want any of the tension. I felt like it was a lot to me. just come in and just focus on one thing that's playing football learning my playbook fundamentals and all of that kind of stuff so. I just wanted to keep the main anything the main thing I guess as to not be on so that's how would you sum up the Antonio Brown situation with the raiders. If you were telling your buddies what would you tell them. I mean I would just tell them. I guess I mean. I don't know if it's a very complicated situation but it was crazy Josh every day you show up and something new right. I mean and we didn't really notice it on and so you what's like your phone or something you see me like we didn't really notice all the things that was happening while we can't lose focusing on get better as a team biggest difference between Nick Sabin and Jon Gruden is what Dr Don more funny it says but there's a lot of similarities of the way they like preparing. Oh and to certain so I'll probably say that's the biggest thing what's your favorite Nick Sabin Story. ooh See he could say now because you're not there he can't it can't punish you. Save this like he likes to do a lot of like these US jokes. It's funny because like you I haven't heard one of them since like middle school and then saving when I went to college to do a lot wait wait. Wait wait. What give me one here all right so one day I was testing. I caught five passes in a row. He was like he hey josh. If you WANNA hold out balk a hose es. I'll say this I sat back and I was like really wait. He was doing dis nuts to you. uh-huh yeah. I was like I ain't heard this. That's one of the great stories about Sabin. I've ever I heard wow dude. It's actually funnier than you did. He Yell at you he only other one on my whole my whole time there and what and why was that I got a slack Tony. Oh miss game and he got in your face yeah he he got up and Oh man we're talking to Josh Jacobs the raiders rookie running back. You know your life story is hard to tell in a a couple of minutes here but it's pretty amazing. Are They GonNa make a movie on your life. Have you heard anything about what I've been approached by a few people about doing it. I really haven't made up my mom. I WanNa do it so right now. Know How would you sum that up and I know it's not fair to you to just just give me kind of a cliff notes version of it but it's pretty amazing. Josh what you grew up and and you know the the man became and here you are in the NFL that those odds if you probably didn't think when you're sleeping in the car with your rest of your family and your dad that you're gonNA end up in the NFL. I'm guessing I mean yeah most definitely. I mean like I was telling him. I never thought really the NFL was go honestly getting my college was the biggest thing for me and so just being with opportunities to go without having like really any looks or anything like that and so two weeks before Sandra Day I mean this is just it's a blessing but how would you sum up what your life was like for. Somebody who is just being introduced to you. I was saying my life hi. This is a very hard growing up being kids and a single parent home just struggling the some bit sometimes you know saying struggled to get things. I mean and then at that being under recruited I mean it's just like every time every time you wanted to take a step down so I'd say that's probably just the biggest thing growing up you just the AH lifestyle that kind of thing into fill in some of the gray area here that Josh and I and I know you're humble and maybe you don't WanNa talk tired of talking about it but you know you're you're there with your dad and I think a chevy suburban and he's got a gun. That's on his lap as you guys sleep. You never saw your dad eight beat. You weren't sure when you were eating how you're eating. Does that kind of a fair assessment of of what was going on. I mean yeah. I'm The all autumn things type and it's a lot more stuff there. I didn't even include their weight on and that was just like aspect of our lifestyle. He's moved hotels tails motels and and won't bear so definitely a difficult if I told you one of those days hey hey you're going to be the starting running back for the Oakland raiders. What would you have said to me. I probably would look at you laugh. Who did you grow up rooting for. I didn't have a favorite team. I I never had a favorite team. I was just kind of life. God their favorite players well. It's a great story and you know whether you WanNa make a movie or not. I'm sure you're going to get you know. People are going to look at this as you know. The blindside was certainly moving and emotional but I think this might be something even bigger than that so and you might hear from coach. Saban after the these nuts story. They're just I'm just saying saying Josh. He might have coach go josh. Let's don't do g's nuncio anymore. I good luck against Kansas City and all oh and by the way the last time he ever have to run on that godforsaken field there the Oakland Coliseum right yeah no yeah that's such a bad field. Oh Man I can't imagine what does that feel like when you get tackled on that field feel like rock it might be. Josh might be running on rocks. Hey you're a great story to root for and we'll certainly keep an eye on on this rookie season. Thank you for joining US thank you that's Josh Jacobs Raiders Rookie running back round of applause for Josh Jacobs that is just okay when he when when he said dis nuts I didn't hear it and then I thought man it sounds like he said these nuts and then Paulie said in my ear. I said he's nuts. We all looked at each each other because he the way he dropped it. In what kind of guys Nick Saban's he funny right yeah well Excuse you great excuse me yeah like he says a desk to hold onto all the balls. Don't you hold onto these Nick Sabin. I know Yes for you know. I'm GonNa win the Emmy this year but I got the submission reading yeah. I think that should do it yeah. Uh The now I have coach Sabin on and say coach. Could you give me a decent not stroke. Keep confirmed that story tough transition by you going from Nick Sabin in these nuts to tell me about living in your call. I know nobody Yup. That's me I mean I think there's a whole lot more to his life growing up and even when he got to Alabama he the first couple of months. He slept on the floor. He had a bed obviously in the dorm but he slept slept on the floor. He was more comfortable doing that because that's what he had been doing all of his life and the fact that his dad he said he never saw his daddy and he said maybe you you know he was just making sure that the family eight in the back that they would sleep in a car and his dad would have a gun with him on his lap as they slept throughout the night but nobody wanted him and they wanted to make him a defensive back. TCU said we'll we'll bring you in and make you a cornerback and he said Said No. I WanNa be I WANNA be a running back and one of the assistant coaches said there were one thousand other players that they recruit that were just like him and then Nick Sabin kept going. Why isn't anybody recruiting this guy and then they went and saw him and then they decided to give him a scholarship. Then he bumped up to a three star he we had he had no stars say no star recruit and then they bumped him up to a three star recruit because Alabama was recruiting him so good for him in hopefully has a successful career. We'll take a break. We got our play the day coming up and stat of the day as well. We'll settle on a poll question so a lot out of things to get to right after this and the Damn Patrick Show every car comes with its share stories right that Ding and.

"That performance or lack thereof by Christian McCaffrey last night certainly calmed down the best running running back in football talk. That didn't take long. You know the field conditions that didn't help either and you had the camera issues social media. It was all over Fox but you know I. I thought I heard Joe Block. Say Look because of lightning. We can't have our camera guys out there. I thought he was saying that early and and I thought that that was evident early. In the game prior to the game of the you know the conditions out there and then you got the all twenty two and then you've got the one on from behind the quarterback and I like I was okay with it. I was waiting for that other. You know there's always another camera angle. That's a little bit tighter up above and I was he's waiting for that but people went crazy and then Joe Buck came back on and basically said hey twitter calmed down. We can't put people out there. If there's going to be lightning these conditions yeah Paulie well. I think a lot of people when Joe Buck I got there said yeah our camera. People couldn't be out there because of the weather. I don't think he was clear enough where you said there's only two cameras cameras for this game initially so when those first two cameras are the only shots people is this is this new experiment. NFL Network what are you doing and you know what's interesting after what happened last week with ESPN and they're yellow down in distance marker people were trying to wag the dog saying I hope NFL looking at this make a change right now before four jokes playing that it was a weather issued only to Availa camera people just wait to rip Joe Buck. They're just waiting for a reason like what what's the reason we can rip Joe Buck I'M GONNA blame Joe for the weather by the way troy. Aikman didn't mince words last night when the CAM under through his wide receiver now he now he hit him but you know Curtis Samuel he hit him but he under through him and the camera angle didn't show that that you know properly operative therefore you're going. Oh he hit his wide rece or you know whatever you're calling you know samuels but he he hit the target but he that would have been a touchdown aikman goes. Oh that would have been six if he actually threw it correctly and I don't know I don't know what cam is feeling when he's there. I don't know if you'll ever be one hundred under percent not with the shoulder other parts you can be one hundred percent or close to it with a shoulder man. That's tricky. It's really really really tricky. Poll question mclovin. What do you have for me today. Okay if I give you every number one overall pick quarterback. WHO's currently in the NFL who right now is the best quarterback now this starts in two thousand nine with Stafford two thousand ten Bradford is out of the game right now. Cam Newton luck is out of the Game Winston Goff Baker Mayfield Ocala Murray so who out of that group Stafford Stafford. It's now Goff you would take golf over Stafford right if you had one I mean Goff's numbers are way bigger than yeah. No no no no no now yeah see now. You don't get your coach. We're just talking about talent while then if you're looking at talent you're saying a hell not right now. I don't know if you'll be healthy Baker. I I don't know yet I don't know yet. That's a good one. I mean Stanford is probably going to the hall of fame. People are so confused on Stafford. How good is that staffer feel after ten years. We still don't know well aw he's one of those guys that we probably won't know from the standpoint of. He's played on bad teams now. If you gave me Sean mcvay with Stafford then we might have a different conversation but Matt Patricia with Matthew Stafford and all the other coaches that he's had over the years I would say stafford is still uh he would be the best he would be the best quarterback. I don't know about Kyle Mary Baker Mayfield. I think I know Cam nine as we move forward unsold on that yeah. I'm GONNA preface with a scene O'Connor. No Offense Matt Stafford is not going to the hall of fame. You don't think so as of right now no he. He is UH has a losing record as a quarterback and you get tagged for that. You get if it's a winning record. You get credit. He's sixty six and seventy five star. I know it's the browns but he might put up such huge numbers yeah but that's the only ways making it right but his numbers are great but there's a lot of guys now with his numbers. He's averaging the past four years twenty. Johnny Five Twenty seven touchdown passes year twenty seven touchdown passes year is in great anymore and the last great year he had he had thirty two touchdown passes in two thousand fifteen to you had forty one that was nine years ago eight years ago. He is also and three in the playoffs as of right now. Let's say he retired two years from now on this cartoon years from now no no but if he plays five more years but like let's say finish with sixty thousand. We're not GONNA make a big deal of six. I I'm just saying right now. I think the pace is off for him. I I think the lions are going to look at this and say what a lost opportunity that you had a really good quarterback or put potential. It's like the quarterbacking version of Calvin Johnson where you go gosh this guy. He looked like he he was everything. You want a franchise quarterback they just they didn't surrounding with anything yet. mclovin Jared Goff's only twenty four been to a super bowl already was in the MVP. I know he's had a couple couple of great years. He's in a crate situation satellite. Get Sean McVeigh the Rams Offensive Line and all of those weapons. I totally know what you're saying but I've Ibom. I bomb like wait. Are we disrespecting off and yeah. I think people are gonNA vote Baker. Do I'm not disrespecting him but I have to look at his situation. It's like Patrick Mahomes if you if you put him with Detroit. Are we talking about him. Have we switched seats. That's my system argument the justice system QB argument. Are you know you know what I am a system with talent if you have a system with talent and then I understand that okay okay by your said if mahomes is in Detroit. Are we talking about no. We're not because he's not surrounded by so he has talent and coaching so the system this to me as well. Let's draft some good players and have a good coach who knows how to make a quarterback better. Wow what a novel approach here yeah exactly with Kansas City. He's not putting up. Yes that's exactly what I think. I think if Joe Montana been drafted by the cardinals he wouldn't have been Chit. I think the Tom Brady set himself. If I was drafted by Arizona my career might have gone a totally different way. It's it's it's tough all right so what's poll question washed and we're. GonNa get that number one overall another question I had by the way and this is kind of snarky mean whose future when you buy in the AFC East if you took the patriots out. Would you buy the jets future. The bill's future the dolphins future who gets to a super bowl. I had at that trio. One team is cursed. The jets yes one team is all time tanking the dolphins and then then they're the bills which I'm not sure what to make. What feels like the bills are the best of those three but that's like saying much yeah but are are. They good enough to get great now. That's really the the key in Miami now. Minka Fitz Patrick is been given granted permission to seek trade and I I know I mean he was drafted eleventh overall. You're not going to get the same value in return but Miami's if if they were unofficially tanking their officially tanking now if you get rid of Fitzpatrick and maybe he's not a great player but on Miami he is and here's another thing you're gonNA have have. I'm looking at all these draft picks. Let me see what we got with Miami. So you have the dolphins twenty twenty draft picks they they have their own first round and the Texans a second their own in the saints third their own and projected compensatory pick their fourth their own and the titans another compensatory pick fifth round and then their own and cowboys pick they also have the Texans first and second round picks in twenty twenty one and as I pointed out many times on this show you can have a lot of draft picks but if you don't know how to draft raft then it doesn't matter and I look at the dolphins and say if I'm to talk. I don't WanNa go to Miami. You just got rid of Mike Mike Tackle Laremy Tunsil and now fitzpatrick so young players and you're letting them go in and now you want me to come in and be your savior. I if I'm I'm going you know tank for somebody else. Don't tank for me stated Bama mortality. Maybe all of you know get my degree in transfers for some place but and why would you WanNa go to Miami and in. How long does IT TAKE FOR MIAMI. D be good could get crushed in the first couple of years there but I you know makeup. Fitzpatrick is and I guess he can't find a position where he wants to play a position. They keep moving moving around and he's he's a good defensive back. Yeah mclovin is this the same as the process with the sixers feel similar okay. If I'm a Miami me Fan. I don't show up. I mean I might show up just to see the Patriots to tell my grandkids. Hey I got to see Tom. Brady but I would take the a year off if I am a dolphins fan if the dolphins are taking the year off. I'm taking the year off. How about that go to a sports bar. Yanks still fly your colors. Watch the red zone at home but I would not support a team. That doesn't care about me and they're going to tell you hey. We're trying to build something special here okay. It's been a while since you build something special here. This is a team that won seven games last year and you might go okay and maybe that was the ceiling for them. Seven was as good as they were going to get because they brought in a new coach so it wasn't good enough to keep coach. You're not sure who your quarterback is and now you're GONNA tank. Hey come on out and watch the dog. How do you promote the dolphins locally. How do you say hey we're eighteen point underdogs against the Patriots. If we cover the spread come on out I'd take.

"Newton struggled Winston just a little bit better. Tampa's defense was really good now. It seems like both quarterbacks are at a crossroads. Jameis Winston Winston is future you brought in Bruce Arians. He's the quarterback whisper. Can he see enough out of Jameis Winston where they decide to give him a long term. Contract as Forest Cam Goes Kenny reclaim that MVP form that he had in two thousand fifteen and the jury is certainly out and you'd probably be a little sceptical if he's able got to do something like that doesn't look like he's completely healthy. I did talk to somebody a source last night. WHO said that CAM is healthier than people think he's not as confident as people think and I went confidence. You don't get put on the injury list with confidence there so that's where I was like okay seems like Cam is always always competent overly confident but eric couple of passes last night that he under through some receivers. I still look at that shoulder the ankle injury injury. We're reminded there's no sure thing when it comes to quarterbacks number one overall picks in general Andrew Luck retired Baker Mayfield great as a rookie struggled in week. One against Tennessee Jared Goff can look great and then he can look average. I don't know if the experts are sold on these number one quarterbacks. All all of these guys are a subtle reminder takes more than talent to be consistent at that position and it's a brutal league lessen. The top picks have learned in recent years. There was a moment there late in the game where I thought Cam was going to get the ball. He's the biggest guy on the field and they decided that they were going to lineup lineup on the wildcat formation with Christian McCaffrey who was shut down the entire game here is Ron Rivera they head coach of the panthers on why the quarterback sneak wasn't the first option the reasoning the.

AB reacts to fines from Raiders, has new helmet
"We have to address a couple more here. We're gonna start in with exactly what is going on in oakland oakland with antonio brown's so many things have happened. It's hard to keep track of and hard knocks being there to help the situation for the raiders in dealing with their star wide receiver and the various antics surrounding him the helmet issue has been well documented for some time for those who don't know antonio browns helmet that he has used his entire career was deemed illegal by the n._f._l. It wasn't safe enough for antonio so he decided to filed a suit saying that he wasn't enough time to adequately find a helmet. He likes to wear for the games. He filed two different grievances. Both it did not fly with the n._f._l. And he lost both of them so he has had to find a helmet he has reported to camp the newest thing being he has has been fined by mike mayock general manager for missing so much time with the team. Antonio brown has stated how upset he is about these fines being levied on on him but frankly i love antonio brown's charisma. I love the way he uses the media to help him and you got to think about the raiders in with hard knocks with everything around their team right now media wise. There's a lot of scrutiny jon gruden being signed that ten year one hundred million dollar contract trading khalil mack trading amari cooper everyone in the n._f._l. Media is trying to keep tabs on what's going on in oakland and antonio brown by taking taking so much of that media heat. He has really made it easier for guys like p._j. Hall arden key cleveland feral jonathan abrams josh jacobs all these rookies and second year players that really have some potential have not had to deal with this media blitz because antonio has been there to kinda shield them from that and on that side i think that the raiders as an organization as a fan base need to thank antonio brown for taking that heat off of their other players so they can develop and really dig into the system not having to worry about media relations however now with this new grievance hopefully it's nothing between antonio brown and mike mayock. They can just move past. It's obvious that he had to get fined for missing so much time with the

"Again. It's you know a lot of it is depending on where you draft because if you go receiver receiver you're going into back into the third round. You know that that's a good spot to take Jacob's as as one of your first you guys but it's you know if you're comparing him to some of the receivers in that range like I. I don't want to speak for you but I know you take brandin cooks over him. Oh for sure robber woods over yeah formats. Obviously you know dependent here but you know it just depends on how you want to build your team. It's just a matter of how much you invest in those you know second or third. Wherever you WANNA put career wise you know those running backs <hes> especially somebody like Jacobs whose unproven both at the collegiate level to a certain extent and obviously at the N._F._l.? devante Freeman or Josh Jacobs Freeman Freeman Josh Jacobs Philip Lindsay Dick Jacobs just barely but I think they should both be at the end of the fourth that it was a pretty good heat side. They're not quite clip worthy email the day number two is a fun one is from Jordan. Hey Tie Asante Devon Malcolm. Those are patriots quarterbacks or defensive backs right now. I have to be yes.

"That's how would feel to me if I pass on her. Another running back here door two and half to make Kenyan Drake of the Miami Dolphins in my running back once stored good. Yeah. I won't do it. You can just I was kill me. All right. I would take Jacobs here. Yeah. We good because I'm with you. Well. Ranking Mahomes right after Josh Jacobs, AJ greens, fund digs, Derrick Henry, this is where I think a tough decision comes. For me for us now. You. It's not for you because you wanna say Julia element is one hundred percent. Correct. You want to go three out of the I four at. Wide receiver position. Yeah. At this point for running backs I'm looking for guys who they're going to catch the ball. So why Julian adamant over the likes of Robert woods? Jillian Ataman folks, let me I could pull up the exact where he was. But Julian Eshelman was after he had returned from his suspension last year was the wide receiver eight and he, he's he is the awfully extended yet, newly extended this, this is not. They think that so much taller. Now they pulled him they extended him out what six four now. Is that right? They got the San Francisco taffy machine that that really works out. Those muscles, just Paul just Balsam. Yeah. He was the wide receiver eight in this offense. It's still going to run through Jillian. They don't they do not think that he is washed and they're not moving on from a reliability standpoint. Someone might say, look robber. Woods is a better selection here. Great offense. Jason, you love Robert woods. If you stare down Elman in woods, do you take out, man in a full p p r I think I do take Ataman. I mean, Robert woods is a handwriting full in my half PR rankings. But I think that the consistency the fact that you had half of last year without coober Cup. I like both guys I would be fine with either and I agree that in a three wide receiver flex league. I would go with a third wide receiver here because you're, you're looking at going. Okay. Do we take the running back because we feel we need a running back because, you know, we do we've got one in his rookie. But the running back is far less talented that we're going to be taking here, if it's Kenyan Drake or someone like that versus a top, you know, a wide receiver one quality player as our third wide receiver starter. I think is part of me that is just curious. What are running back core is gonna look like later in the draft with such commitment, and it'll be von PR. So we'll go with Ataman. That's fine Julio Jones, juju Smith Schuster. And Julian Ataman is ridiculous. If Joe ma'am very happy. Joe mixing could have slipped three picks. And we could have had him as Rb one instead of Josh Jacobs. He only needed to slip one really. He was picked. Right. But then we went have juju. No, I said, if he slipped into the third round he went one after juju. But if one before June, the second, I believe he went, you're lucky, I'm so I was looking the wrong direction. You're absolutely right. Makes sense. Follow the snake. Yeah, it is. So we took Julian Ataman. Robert woods went to picks later golladay off the board. Some other highlights of this round Brandin cooks went at the eighth pick Kenyan Drake. See later four oh nine ahead of Philip Lindsay ahead of David Montgomery. So Jason other owners thinking like you did incorrectly Cooper dirty going. Andrew luck ornery today. Lockett's burying 'cause I don't like Drake. Yeah burying Drake. I look, I think he's a talented musician. I think he can call me on the cell. Cell phone joke. Anything? The only the only Drake reference, he can pull out. All right to recon. Interesting PR player for sure. Probably value there at five oh to Andrew luck. And Aaron Rodgers go off the board in this round and then some of the most difficult players to draft in a PR league win..

"Four of Oklahoma on the ground a Harris, he'll pick up a couple more. Now, the time out to be called. It's a third, and let's say a long three for Alabama upcoming clock stopped at two forty six left. And Oklahoma will be able to stop the clock. One more time trailing by. Well, this game started out twenty eight nothing, and I think Oklahoma showed a lot coming back. I mean this team taking on the personality of their head coach Lincoln Riley. But they didn't go quietly. They could have very easily got blown out of the stadium. But they continue to battle to fight and looks like they're gonna come up short. But outstanding season for Oklahoma. I confess to not knowing everything about the quarterback rating to it's under by lowest quarterback rating. Get to thirty six point seven. I know that's excellent. That's really good. When that's rated against the big twelve defensive like one hundred and fifty. That you have after thirty six anything. No, no. I may have total rushing yards in my career. When you add it up. Two fifty left here. Third down in three. It's Tunga by low and keep it he'll cross the first down yardage necessary. And take a seat. And I think Oklahoma will stop the clock. I doubt it will stop the clock change still have that one time out their pocket. They wanted us to forty three left. And now the clock is widening very heady play by Taco Bell. Oh, I don't think that Oklahoma was anti disciplining him with that hobbled wheel running in this situation. That's why was the perfect called by Mike locks. Loxley on his way to Maryland, whatever Alabama season ends like the loved one more game to play all the ground Damian Harris, he'll pick up a couple two fifteen left. And now the clock will stop Oklahoma will use that last time out to fourteen left. There'll be a second out. We're going to find out if the bold move Dabo Sweeney of of making the move from Kelly Bryant Trevor Lawrence is gonna pay off as was certainly good in the game today against Notre Dame. But he hasn't faced a defense like Alabama either. But the lights went out to bright for that. True freshman. No, I think the difference between clemson's offense, and what we've seen tonight from Oklahoma given Markey's browse not healthy. But t Higgins is a superstar, and Alabama's gonna have issues dealing with him. You mentioned it not enough credit goes to the Alabama defense. They held this Oklahoma unit to thirty four. That's still a couple touchdowns under their season average. Bama just went over five hundred yards in total offense for the game. So it's all good for the top ranked crimson tide. Second down and eight ball thirty-five. Clemson all the ground is Josh Jacobs. Who's carried the mail, but the most part he has a first down and that could end this game. Oklahoma cannot stop the clock again. No, number one seed has won the college football championship in the first four years of the playoff. Alibaba looked fix that as well. Hooked up with Clemson on the seventh of January Santa Clara. I think we can put the rest who's the best offense in college football this year too. Based on what's happened here in this game. It's it's clearly Alabama crimson tide. And you know, they wanted that on their mantle. Yes, that was that was definitely an issue. All the ground. Josh jacobs. Still rotted taken out of the six yard line. I'm nineteen on the play. He didn't want to just sit down. Two more yards. Why not? You think they're going deal on it? I know some are more interested in that than others. Be as friends like say a significant touchdown to some. Sixty five seconds left the game. It's first down and goal. I think they're gonna remember the six yard line. Taking a lot of time in the in the huddle here. I think they're going to kneel on Brian Robinson has just checked in Greece. Victory formation.
