Game on monday night no surprise there was kinda ineffective got in the end zone twice but only ten carries for thirty four years. Now a lot to ask you here because josh jacobs already ruled out for sunday's today I'm wondering how significant you think this injury might be. And i'm also kinda interested the nfl network Reports said that payton barbara is expected to quote. Handle some of the weed back duties against the pittsburgh steelers this week. So that kinda gums up. I was ready to walk so kenyan drake and a lot of my leagues now. I'm not so sure how that backfield is going to go so number one. How serious do you think this jacobs. Injury is and number two. How do you handle this jacobs or even if you don't and you have drake and or peyton barbara on your teams An ankle injury asser baited by a Turf toe in terms does only response to one thing.

"He's definitely comfortable around me. Comfortable around dressy then. He's hugging him joking with him. You know all that and those are all good songs for hopefully being able to give we. I wish everybody could catch one hundred balls. You know i really do but again. It's hard to take away from. Darren when he's been so productive and and good for us you know if darren had you know w r next to his name and the depth chart no one would care. You know the fact that it's a tight end. Why don't we get to you. Know that just is what it is. You know if if if henry can show when we put the pads on. And all that which i'm fully confident he will. Yeah absolutely. i could see that happening. Here's some thoughts as my takeaways. I wrap things up from training camp. It really interesting to start seeing how the nfl is dealing with cova protocols with players with media with staff how things are starting to come back to the norm that we're used to and i'm going to tell you it won't be one hundred percent everything that you're used to but as for me we're starting to see it returned to normalcy. We're starting to see that. We can be in the same rooms. As jon gruden derek carr booth came into. The room is the first time i hadn't been on zoom call since march twenty twenty which was pretty amazing being that we're now to look these guys in the eye. We're able to develop that report with them. And that's something that i've said all along is very important for reporters to do when we're trying to report and bring back facts to you about a team is when we can look somebody in the i. It's not just about the answer that they're giving it's about the body language it's about the presence that they have when they're answering it. You can tell if somebody liked or didn't like your question right off the bat so it's always a good thing to be able to see that return for us to be able to speak to all the players and the coaches and to have that accessibility again. It's really important for what we do. And i'm glad that i was able to see that as far as being on the field i tell you a lot of hungry readers out there. A lot of aggressive raiders out there a lot of readers that are listening and paying such close attention to the coaches and all that they have to offer as they get into training camp. You see so many fresh faces as well with the rookies and undrafted free agents. That were brought in this year. And i'm still looking for who is going to spark. I'm keeping my eyes out on jimmy morrissey on the offensive line. I'm keeping my eyes. Out on dylan's donor in the wide way. Receiver department dj. Turner's well. who. Jon gruden mentioned. And i'm looking courses see. What a lot of the defensive rookies that they brought in or going to do malcolm coons when divine diablo comes back. Maybe we can get more of a glimpse of him in the coming weeks. But i really can't wait for everything to play out. Especially as jon gruden mentioned earlier and you could hurt this on the i ten. Podcast if you subscribe to that. He talked about the secondary and in that secondary with tyree. Gillespie coming in with demon our net would nevin lawson with guys like casey hayward with trayvon molin And so many other names. That i could just go on and on and how they're going to shake out who is in what position. What a nickle package looks like. Who's going to be up there when they're playing three deep. It's one of these things that we don't know yet and we're going to have to wait and see how it all plays out in camp and so to me. That's the most exciting thing to be watching right. Now is the secondary and the cornerbacks and safeties. How everything will play out for them. Because i was going to be an area that really needs to improve for the raiders to make a push for the playoffs and the twenty twenty one season.

"In the preseason has ever selling me this bill of goods about how he's christian. Mccaffrey stop it. You're christian mccaffrey doesn't exist. Let's keep moving here to a couple more takeaways from this game angry. Just a few more thoughts here. Just quickly sterling shepard nine catches again last night that you can pretty much make him a lineup block. Because it's clear. He is the best giants wide. Receiver could area's. Tony barely played and kenny. Golladay until further notice belongs outside your lineup matthew but you would expect much more out of a guy that got eighteen million dollars per year this off season. Yeah i mean listen. A lot was made of the conversation Quote unquote conversation that him and daniel jones had on the sidelines animated convent conversation. But i just thought from a health effective cantagalo. They looked better than i expected. And once again. I think i thought overall the giants offense look good like i. I saw a lot of people. Trashing jason on twitter. And i'm like man like did jason garrett in call perfect game but i thought he called a really good game and if if you if there's not a penalty on daniel jones's touchdown ron. There's if dairy and doesn't drop that ball. Laura doesn't paul you know doesn't come off. Sides misfield goal like. I think the narrative about this game is much different. I thought the giants offense looked pretty. Good candidate looked healthier than i thought he would again. I think next week against at home against atlanta is going to cure a lot of ills for the giants. Last thing. i want to bring up here about this game. Field can move on. Is daniel jones. Good guys game. I've seen him play. Look you know me. Like this is what i do is like. I predict the future right. That's a fantasy analyst right and usually it's at a week at a time two weeks pace right but then jones up to see your early euros a year early with my ride or die yes he was bad last year but no one could expect saquon to be hurt but now this is the danger. Jones does all in last year. Danny jones now has two different games of over twenty one fantasy point like and what was exciting for me if you were a daniel jones fantasy manager or he's available in your league because he's out there in a tunnel leagues is that all the designed runs really good to see that and he got robbed as you just mentioned of more points ticky tack at best hall. There are some bad officiating. A both sides last night. I though i listen as a washington was thrilled for that. Call but i agree with you very ticky tack chase young on roughing the roughing the passer call now. That was up to one like the worst one was jd. Mckissick not touched by anybody. They went to review and confirm that he was down before the third. We'll start anyway. I don't like to rip on too much but it was a tough night for the for the zebras thursday night. I'm just saying like. I think there's something there with daniel jones especially when you think about. Hey atlanta coming up next. I listen mobile quarterbacks. He looked good. He looked good against. I don't know if it was just the washing defense playing bad or just daniel jones maybe daniel jones living finally living up to with all the weapons that he has shared living to number six overall. Pick in the nfl draft. Let's get to the injuries and we turned us off a bell for all of those most importantly to find you a couple running-backs that have been dealing with a couple of different injuries. Let's start with josh jacobs in las vegas. yes yesterday. We talked about josh jacob sitting out wednesday. Well technically. The raiders didn't practice on wednesday and the other thing is just jacobs had said before. The season started that he anticipated resting a lot of wednesdays. And that would be the plan for him going forward. The surprise perhaps came in that he didn't practice on thursday either now. We don't know whether that's because they had a short week coming off a monday night game or whether this is something foreboding for this week but i would say friday practice. Obviously a very big deal to determine josh jacob status for the weekend dealing with toe and ankle issues coming out of that game miles sanders for the eagles rested on wednesday but full practice on thursday so no worries for him. Okay all good there for miles sanders. If josh does not play. I think we all believe the kenyan drake belongs as a lineup. Locked for you. Not just as a runner but also the passing upside which we saw in week one he had five catches feels like he feels like fade this week even if he's active again trying to pittsburgh marching josh shakeups. Josh feels like fade this week. Even if he's active on the road at pittsburgh very good defense just jacobs was not impressive on monday. Night we got two touchdown so you didn't mind but like that offensive line really really struggling. A lot of they've been banged up. They had a lot of losses in the off season. Here i mean. I think josh jacobs as a talented. Nfl runner but given that offensive. Line fact he's less less than one percent healthy even if he's active and going against the steelers looking for other options. If i have josh jacobs this week all right. Let's go to baltimore. They host the chiefs on sunday night. Hollywood brown obviously also played up monday night game so perhaps the been monitoring him on a short we do..

"So i'm your host candidate ruin felder and oh boy. Do we have a lot to discuss today. So starting with the show. We're going to recap the monday night. Game between the raiders and the ravens and the crazy things that happened in that game the fancy implications with that then. We are gonna talk about last night's game between the giants and the washington football team and the fantasy implications with that. Oh man that is going to be. That's going to be painful to recap as giants fan and then we are going to get into the one o'clock games. Talk about the fairway. Unfavorable matchups with those games fans implications with that in the second segment. And then we'll do the four o'clock games and the sunday night game and this will be in the third segment and then finally to conclude the show. I'll talk about the players that are trending up trending down fantasy. Some of the waiver wire pickups that i think you should consider and things like that so another jam packed show now that football is back and things are a lot easier to you know. A lot of topics are easier to come by now. The football is back. So let's get into the first segments. Let's start off by talking about the monday night. Game between the ravens and the raiders. So this game. I thought the ravens were gonna win and this ended up being arguably the game of the year and we're talking about thursday What we're talking about the first game between the bucks and the cowboys being that this could very well be a candidate for that as well. The raiders won an overtime thirty three to twenty seven and it was a like i said it was a great game and yeah and looking at you know the stats from this game. So let's sort of with the winning team. So derek carr thirty four fifty six four hundred thirty five passing yards two touchdowns and interception and i'm going off of Cbs so he had twenty seven points in that game. Roughly around there in that game and again depending on how many you know what kind of lead you playing in it. It's going to be different but twenty seven points year. A lot of fancy points there then. Josh jacobs ten are used for thirty four yards but he had two touchdowns. Yeah a lot of people very frustrated with josh jacobs and last year while especially because the last year and the kind of season that he had You know a lot of people. Were not very high on josh jacobs going into this year as opposed to last couple of years. And he's a guy that i actually traded for in one of my leagues because this is the league were. Jk dobbins stores acl. So i gave up joe mixon after. He had a really good game against the vikings. And i got josh. Jacobson daryl henderson now is that trade the greatest trade in the world now. I think you know the person that traded with. I think he may be one the trade in that but i think for this year. It's fair because darryl henderson is going to be the lead running back because sony. Michelle really didn't do anything and then josh jacobs. I feel a kenyan. Drake really isn't going to play a huge role in taking carries away from him. I feel like jacobs. Problem is the raiders. They don't run the ball as much as they should. They really need to run the ball. More because josh jacobs a talented running back now the offensive line is not the same for the raiders. Because they gave jackson. They lost rodney hudson and they lost trent brown. That's three fifths of their offensive lines. They have a new offensive. Line and the center for the raiders. Really got off to a rough start the alabama center that they got in the draft yet didn't get off to the best start and he better figure it out because you know he he could. Of course the raiders. The game i mean he had that the raiders had that botch snap early on in the game. Lucky that they got the ball back. Because you know again that could have been a game changer. In the game for them and they're lucky they're lucky that it didn't affect them but overall raiders got to run the football more. Okay and now that. I got josh jacobs. They definitely need to do that so then. Let's move on to the receiving statistics of darren waller targeted nineteen times. So if you have this guy on your team. And he's part of the big three. You should be very encouraged by that. They're going up against the steelers. So that might you know targets. You're definitely going to dip down. But if you have darren wall on your fantasy team you should be very encouraged by the amount of volume this guy gets and yet targeted. Nineteen times ten receptions. One hundred five yards and a touchdown Brian edwards definitely asleep over in a lot of leagues. If he is available to you maybe pick them up. Could be a flex. Play four receptions eighty one yards and he had the i actually that was jones Brian edwards had a big game now four sections eighty one yards. I thought he had the touch. He didn't a renfro. Had six receptions. Seventy yards kenyan. Drake at five receptions for fifty nine yards e. jones to receptions forty six yards had a game winning touchdown rugs to receptions for forty six yards. Yet they just kept force-feeding waller. I feel like they need to bring these guys involved edwards involved get renfro involved get rugs involved get some of these playmakers involved. You don't have to always keep targeting waller waller is great and we did have some drops in this game but get these other guys involved in the offense like i said i think rugs is going to have a big year edwards. Really impressed in camp and in the preseason. That's why they got rid of john. Brown get these guys more involved. I think these guys could be strong. Flex plays i really do. They gotta get targeted. You know. I think they got to do that. And run the football more. It can't it doesn't have to be you know derek thrown waller and that's the offense run the football sort of these other players. Okay but you know. Listen the raiders. One good for them. And there's definitely guys on this team. Like i said you know rugs and edwards they get targeted more. I think they're good flex plays i really do. So let's move onto now the ravens. So the ravens. They had a little bit of a rough time. But look at lamar jackson. Nineteen of thirty george. Thirty five yards touchdown. He did have two. Fumbles in the game which were very costly. And that's concerning and get to that. In a little bit rushed for eighty. Six yards did have a beautiful touchdown pass to marquees brown. That was a beautiful play and then he had that big sammy watkins during the game. That was his best over the night. I think i mean..

"He's gonna do it but i wonder what about april. They drafted all these safeties. He struggled last year. Is emma like lesbian. Progressives afford round pick but hey they think is a better fit for defense. And abram isn't getting it done isn't improving on his angles in and his coverage in his own field discipline. I can see a change. Happens will see. It's gonna take a while but we'll see you. Don't talk about kenyan. Drake and josh jacobs and that was top today. minicamp excited. I don't work. i work at at jacobs's one in any andre. This won't be i. Don't see him as a complete backup by. I see josh. Jacobs is a full time starter. There were talking about grooms playbook again and you can see them both. Stay super fresh. And in josh jacobs got banged up a lot last year endured carson. He's gonna be fresh every play. And so you're gonna see his carries go down and maybe that's concerned fancy football players but for raider football fans. He may get more bang for buck. It might be like wake max crosby. He may play with nagoya on the field but he may have impacted. He did last year so if if jacobs numbers are down. Carry numbers are down but his Averages up that's all good right so they go raise practicing ruin. It's hot seven thirty in the morning. And i think that's what you're going to see in training gabbana's quite dead early but it's gonna be early. You know Roy moore Graduations him pro football pro.

"So i'll see you want to click the multiple positions button and that should solve the problem for those of you on. Cbs sports leagues. That can't put john gene as a titan. Johnson johnson. yes all right. That's that should be helpful for you. He should be tight end so good stuff takes them hill. Last year listed sunday saint team. If adam trump is going to get as many targets he did then go pick him up to sunday. It's week to another nfl on cbs. Double header in the early action. The raiders meet the steelers. The others are going to see a match up of rookie quarterback's when the patriots take on the jets. And then it's a showdown out west with two teams ready to light up the scoreboard. I cannot wait for this game. Justin herbert and the high octane chargers offense clash with dak and the cowboys coverage begins at noon eastern with j. b. And the guys on the nfl today this sunday the best games are on the nfl on cbs. Here's your stat of the week. No i'm not telling you to sit tyler lockett but i love this. Just let's have fun with it. Let's see what happens last week. Tyler lockett had exactly one hundred yards. That was his eleventh one hundred yard game in the previous ten games. He is followed up those one hundred yard games nine times fifty five or fewer yards and only three games with double digit fantasy points in his previous ten games after a one hundred yard game. Five or fewer pr fantasy points in half of those ten games it is wild and he's doomed a him but we'll see what happens and we'll have a nice laugh about it unless we have tyler lockett on our team if he struggles news and notes. Josh jacobs miss practices. They're real concern about him. Missing the game at pittsburgh and if so what would that do to kenyan drake and his ranking. I mean you should be concerned. You know he was hobbling around. We know this is a guy. That's add some injury concerns in the past in the raiders have been you go back to his rookie season with the Remember when they were out of the playoff race they sat down and then when they somehow found the way back in it they brought him back out there so they clearly you know. Use some kid gloves with him. I think he's Out than kenyan drake becomes a high inflex. It's not an easy match up by any stretch you know so you would love the passing down usage And what. I think Devon secretary terry went for about seventy yards rushing last week against the steelers so figure something along those lines but i wouldn't you know all of a sudden make kenyan drake a must start in my rankings. But if you have money team maybe be a lot more courage about zach earth's was limited in practice. He's got a good chance to play. I mean came back last week from the injury. But he's been limited you went from he went from. Dnp delimited which directors johnny smith was limited in practice. So if he does not play with hunter. Henry atop twelve tight. End for you against the jets..

"That's why he wants all these different pieces so just opens up his playbook. He's not free to have a deep and really a big playbook and he is good player car. casey hayward said i'm probably plan on the outside the inside. But i haven't played in the inside since i was in green bay and that was two thousand and fifteen his four years of guys bradley with the charges. Against of course with few raiders. Now we're on the outside so that's where he will probably play barring injuries. You know shane things talking about his rankings. I think pro. Football focus to derek carr was now is next gen stats excuse me. Nfl next gen stats. Excuse me on. A derek carr was ranked number the ninth best quarterback on the press true. Ask year and i find that in writing because a lot of people bang on him. And i don't know how many people say oh terrible peru and hasn't been the same since he was sacked and broke his leg against the colts on christmas eve. Two thousand sixteen now. I always thought that was a little kind of unfair narrative. people always. He's scared to get here knife under pressure indicates he's taken the he is. He's taking the heat. This sounds a guy. Like derek carr. You know what. I do your car. I've never been hard on him. I wanna talk about vaccination. There's reported razor among the league leaders and vaccination. Today there is report that four teams are really lagging behind. His cardinals. chargers and colts in there is another team involved to maybe the jaguars washington post op. But the fact is the raiders. Aren't in that group. And they're doing well and that's gonna make it easier for everybody to live a normal daily life and i'm not going to get in a political statement here at all but that's all we want is normalcy right now. We're getting there it's great. I don't get enough. I can't get enough of these stories. Stadiums being filled the nba players age players major league baseball and the barrier the asian giants ringing player in front of a four house in the twenty fifth and san francisco and usc ucla. I love all this stuff ours. We hell in joy this be safe. Do everything within your means. And in what makes you feel comfortable but enjoy this. This was a terrible in all of our lives moment frigging over a year so enjoy it last week. Gus bradley kinda raised some eyebrows on the interview. By saying jobs both safety positions were open competition. We assume that it was trayvon. More second round pick would start at free safety and johnathan stirred abraham would start at strong safety. So for the coaches say. Hey it's wide open one. I think adds kinda just coachspeak. That's what that's what coaches do. Also you don't want to hand merck merit a starting job three months before.

"Coronas big news. Today will fuller. Go to the dolphins kenyan. Drake going to the raiders. Adam jamie and he on fantasy football today. So cain drake it's a two year deal fuller a one year deal and he will serve a one game to start the season heath which is bigger news to you the drake signing the fuller signing. I thought i was coming on. A kyle rudolph podcast for I think the bigger news is a gas. It's probably i. The drake news is just bad. News all around. At least there's some positively to the fuller news. Yeah jamie you which is The rudolph news is he mentioned or the fuller news of the drake news. What's the biggest item here. Mitchell trubisky news. But he talked. Oh the bills. that's right. handcuff team time. I mean they. They both kind of stink to be honest with you Fuller does have more upside. But this is the best destination for him and drake stinks. This is terrible drake stinks. Here's no fantasy value. He has finished value but he loses fantasy value. I mean this was a bad for josh. jacobs is bad for drake. You know not drake. I think had many options to be a featured guy but he could have been now he's going to be in a in a fifty fifty split. That's what you think you think is going to be a fifty fifty split. Yeah i don't think this is going to be a backup. I think he's going into play. He's what are you. What are you going to project. i think he's going into play. I it does. Sound like the raiders. Want to use kenyan drake a lot in the passing game which is bad news for drake or jacobs who finally got forty five targets. Last year i wouldn't say fifty fifty but let's see there were hundred and fifteen carries and forty four targets that went to devante booker and jalen reagor last year. Scrubs i i would expect. He's gonna get a slightly more than that. Josh jacobs got the lion share of the work at two hundred and seventy three carries and fifteen games. Devante booker had ninety three carries. Sixteen of them came in one game without josh jacobs. So if we had two hundred and seventy three carries and fifteen games for jacob. How many are you thinking this year. Guys two hundred fifteen to twenty. If he's healthy. Yeah i think. I very i guess came out at two fifty two so not the under for sure. Okay but bor not. But you're not it's not fifty fifty i i. I didn't know what you meant. By fifty fifty fifty fifty in terms of their carries. They think it's fifty fifty in terms of what they're playing times going to be close to that. I mean you know. Drake is going to be on most fast down situations. Drake is going to get more carries than any of the other backups. That they had before. This is bad news for both these guy s. So josh jacobs stop twenty four pick or is the third guy now is a fourth round guy from guy okay. Heath oughta top twenty four pick. I think i'd probably still lean third round but i like fourth round. I think is they just lost their entire offense blind that's true they got incognito they just lost their entire offensive line is miles sanders over. Josh jacobs that's not even close. Jk dobbins not close for me. I will still probably take jacobs. Over dobbins dobbins and st and non jacobs. Mvp jamie who are you ranking jacobs with. I put them behind. Melvin gordon and so. He's ahead of david johnson tree. Okay let's talk about we'll fuller now. Where are we going to be ranking him. He's before the dolphins it's funny. I didn't hardly move him in my dynasty worksheet. I keep it up the projection for free agents. Just because i don't actually have a projection. And i'd put to ten in for him. And i think that I run i get up with his two hundred six fantasy point so i've got a wide receiver thirty three. There's upside beyond that but he's not gonna play week one. You probably can't count him playing fifteen games after that. He's a an upside boomer bus number three wide receiver respect. I tell you that. He's the best wide receiver in football. Where you live. You know it's gonna be great as it is hopefully a precursor trading shawn watson everything that would be the The keys to situation where. He's he's probably better than devante parker. But that doesn't mean he's going to get more targets than devante parker better production than parker and they're not done. They're going probably draft a receiver so this is not a great landing spot for him by any stretch and the quarterback as we saw last year has a lot of room to grow. I hope he does This is a big signing to help them get there. But this isn't the type of quarterback that's gonna make wolf fuller better. I was sort of hoping for juju. Smith schuster end up here a better fit for two. We're talking about lower than will fuller. Okay so would you guys rather have will fuller or let's say odell beckham fuller beckham for if beckham south. Y'all think back on how. 'bout curtis samuel or will fuller samuel. Yeah this is very productive waiting for the dominos to fall here are you. Are you getting excited about to. What's jamie if you expect them to add a wide receiver. Hey could be with the third overall. Pick or maybe trade back a little bit. But if they get one of those big three wide receivers then all of a sudden it looks like a pretty interesting receiving core. What do you think about to. Then he improve And i think he will. I think to has got a lot to show clearly. But it's not fair to compare him to burrow herbert mostly. Herbert he's gonna get a full off season. He's gonna hopefully get a guy that he potentially is familiar with if it's Or maybe waddell. So they've made two significant moves. Today they also got their center and the upgraded. Their you know so This is an offensive line. That will be better you know. I think they're going. Add the running back so that running game will be better so they're putting pieces around him you know. It's not like what. The bills did with josh allen quite yet but there was a building process to that started with john brown and cole beasley ended up with stefan. And you've seen the growth so can have those types rights. Maybe not to the same height but those type of improvements. I hope so You know so. I think to has got a chance to be in the streaming conversation. A guy that you'll take with the second. Pick a second quarterback if your roster deep enough to carry too but he's going to be a starting fantasy quarterback like i'm not moving ahead of ryan fitzpatrick for example. You know you wanna talk about guys. That i think i have more upside. I think fitzpatrick has upside but to is not going to be far behind. He's last question. What do you wanna see the cardinals do it running back and do you believe that chase edmonds could really be a worker says the as the cardinals i think it was called kingsbury said the i thought that he could be but i'm not sure that the evidence is there to say that he can. What do you want to see at running back. What do you think about edmonds. I think at this point what i might hope for. Is something like what the chargers are doing. Where you have. Austin ekeler is not going to be at three hundred touch guy maybe not the by definition a workhorse but you get edmonds in a situation where he could see for or five targets a game and maybe handle the ball ten ten to twelve times in the running game and they can add a plotter a short yardage back to go with him that that would be my preference but they could also go ataman. There's been a big rush to go. Add the other running back. So maybe chris carson or someone sees this and lowers their demand and in up in arizona. Teeth jamie of adam. Thanks for tuning in every body. Hopefully we'll have another bonus podcast for your suit.
Are Raiders plotting to trade Derek Carr, pursue Deshaun Watson?
"According to a report out of las vegas. The raiders are taking calls on quarterback derek. Carr it's suggested in the report that it could potentially be the beginning of a three team trade to get to shawn watson in a raiders. Uniform shannon vegas. Try and trade for sean top. Five top seven quarterback. I think you should be in the running for watson. Skip there something that's been on my mind and the bother me last week. I called you the night before and told you that has some information about about jon. L. came on the show and they're about six thirty top of the show. I said to shawn watson my sources tell me shawn watson has ashby the texans for trade and this is not. This is just being broke but this could ask a couple of weeks ago now. Adam schefter reported twenty minutes out to me that show watson to ask for trade basically saying that he's breaking the news which at and i said what transpired that he wants to go to the jets. He have a fondness for robert solid. Everybody keeps saying jason this and that so what they're trying to do. They're trying to add egg pool pork to a hamburger. That i've already made is still a hamburger. Youth and economists tried to add to the story back to this absolutely skilled. I don't this report came from chris. Simms yes okay. What transpired skill. And you said this yesterday. When he was when he was talking to the press conference the player he said the player of the the new england syria away to new caserio said the player yes he must have realized how it sounded his head because he started saying shaw desha. It's too late. You everything off his thing and our to our for everything to my agent day google level but anyway skill yes they should skip. I just got always got the impression. That jon gruden wasn't as far the derek carr. I don't know what it is. I could be totally wrong but it. Just something about yeah. He's good but i don't really know if he can take me to where i need to go. I am making ten million dollars. The i do have one hundred dollar contract. And we haven't been to the play. So i'm as you can be viewed as a failure skill for thirty million dollars ain't got nothing to show for it. And there's a lot of have to do with his defense. They print his lands. Twenty fourth and thirtieth last three years are good bradley the off season he so you look at it. They're waller. it's a top three tight end. They got josh jacobs. Who made the pro bowl again. If i'm not mistaken hillary rodham. He nice receiving corps offensive. Line is solid. Yeah john was. It will be a major player for them. And in this offense again. It's the west coast system skip. It'd be foolish not to try

"New home for hip hop in standing up to racism and racial injustice in the black and Brown Immunity. Big boys named Luigi up in here. Bad play of the day. Liu Wei. What upper bad play the day Big. It is going to Raiders running back Josh Jacobs on Monday. Man it was reported was breaking news man in Las Vegas. The running back Josh Jacobs was in a single car crash and he was arrested for a d u I big. This was in the Around the McCarran Airport in Las Vegas, and I don't know if he was arriving there If he was going to the airport to leave somewhere, but whatever it was, he was in the accident, and when the cops got there, they saw that he was, you know, a little intoxicated, and they booked him. He has now released and he has court coming up in March. They said he's going to plead not guilty, but it's like it's already out there. It's not a good look for the team. You just came out for great win on Sunday. If your second year with the Raiders, you're a star running back like bro, That is just a bad move. Head of just getting somebody to come and drive your car or whatever it is, we get picked up. You decided about all that afterwards, though that's true. Outdated. Should hire somebody. You know, either he was picking up somebody he was leaving. They should. You know, I should have over to me and I should have. You know that's not there It is. That's the one thing I got on social media. A lot of people like mad He has enough money to do this. Yes, I was like, bro. To be honest with you. He's young. He has the money, like, think about what you would do in that situation like I've gotten behind the wheel when I was younger. I ain't gonna lie when I was, you know, thinking I was okay to drive before I'm going. I can admit that it was a bad thing to do. I don't do it anymore. But at that point, you gotta figure you've got the fame. You got the money. You think if you think you're okay. You think your physical you know, it's like paying a hell of a tuition into the school Various now, too, though. You know what I'm saying? Because now now he knows, And you gotta think you know the NFL. They're going to hit him. You don't know, saying the court system going to hit him the court of public opinion that's already hitting him. You know what I'm saying? So hopefully he learned from this? Yeah, I'm saying and not make another bad player today. But you know what? He's human and and only person is going to get hurt right now is him and probably, you know some of the loved ones, but no one was hurt. You know what I'm saying? The streets and crash into each other. So the only one person has hurt is him And he's gonna have to be be able to deal with his bad play today and hopefully not make another one. Yeah, man. When the news broke out, Jon Gruden was actually in a press conference, the coach for the Raiders, and he had this to say. Just aware of it. I will say that Josh is okay. And I'm not at liberty to comment on until I get more fax. But we do have word Josh is okay and we are looking into the matter. Yeah, man. So thank you for the exclusive. We give you said that ourselves. Let's go. No damn audio, He said Absolutely nothing. Exactly. That's right. Yeah, that was another bad player. Today. You'll stick around your radios. Big Boi's neighborhood so college girls, am I right so much.
Blame Jon Gruden for the Raiders’ loss to the Dolphins... but do it for the right reason
"Raiders lost to miami. Las vegas raiders are now seven and eight. They missed the playoffs again. This year and the blame has got to go on. Jon gruden their head. Coach I i like jon gruden. I think there have been moments where he's done a good job preparing his team to play. I thought the highlight of the year for las vegas. Raiders was beating the kansas city chiefs. They looked very well prepared. That a great game plan But again this loss to miami coach. The recent failures by the raiders has to go on. Jon gruden you're gonna blame jon gruden for the loss. Make sure you do it for the right reason. So all the attention after this game has gone onto john. Gruden's late dame decision making against miami. Where the raiders had the ball first and goal on the eight yard line with a minute and fifty five seconds left. And the raiders chose to not score a touchdown they had. I mean they first of all they had the running back. Josh jacobs literally taking the other one yard line that he slid down to avoid scoring and did not want a touchdown would have given them a six point lead because they had they were down gas. Were down twenty four twenty five so they didn't want to have a six point lead. They wanted to take as much time off the clock as possible then on third and goal derek carr literally kneeled to continue to run the clock down and they kicked field goal. Giving them a twenty five to twenty three lead with nineteen seconds. Left in the game and people are critical. The strategy like you should have done other stuff. You should've taken the touchdown you should've done. Whatever coulda woulda should say whatever you want to say. I don't think this is the reason to criticize john. Gruden every once in a while you have a strategy. That is a good strategy. That simply doesn't work. I play video. What is it not a tabletop. Game like a board game called settlers of catan a giant nerd and my family. We all play during christmas. And i had a great strategy of putting my game pieces on the the number eight. Meaning that if you have to you have a high percentage chance of rolling in eight like you would think yeah. It's literally six and eight or two of the highest six eight and seven like the highest possible. Things could roll when you're rolling. Two dice and eighths just never got role but i waited and waited my whole strategy revolves around rolling eight with these two dice. And it didn't happen. And i don't know this the probability or whatever. I just know that on paper. That's a good strategy. Like eight gets rolled all the time and this game. It was an anomaly. It didn't happen and that happens sometimes every once in a while you good strategy that for one reason or another. There's an anomaly. And it doesn't work out
Families of Negro Leaguers rejoice in MLB's decision to recognize league
"On wednesday. Mlb announced that it was quote unquote elevating negro leaguers. Two major league status within its official historical record which helps explain why google searches for the name. Josh gibson suddenly started spiking. Baseball says it's figuring out how to include negro leagues statistics into its canon of sacred numbers. And there is no resume quite as legendary or as mythical as that of the late josh gibson. The catcher that satchel page once unambiguously deemed the greatest hitter. Who ever lived. So i called up shawn gibson. Josh's great grandson and the executive director of the josh gibson foundation to understand what mlb's decision to elevate his great grandfather means to him. Well first of all. I don't like the word elevating. I think it should be more of a merger because niggly baseball player or major league players as well. So that's first and foremost this. And i want to bid tuesday night as josh gibson's greg grants and i woke up as josh jacobs. His grandson asher to cerebral calls questions about this happened. Literally when people say happen literally overnight it literally happened overnight and to wake up and see that in lobby made the announcement and josh gibson. Now what we consider not just one greatest league baseball players he. He'll be considered one of the greatest baseball players of all time and so for us in our family. It's a great honor. Ona understand josh. What you heard growing up from family from friends about how your great grandfather considered his own career compared to those who had the opportunity who were afforded that opportunity to play in the majors for jars. You know and the other great negro baseball players you know. They knew they were great players. They didn't even know by to tell him that it was just a decision At that time it was in that era. that kennesaw mountain land is denied the opportunity to play in the majors but did not stop him. They barnstorm against a lot of white baseball players. And you know as well as we know. I know is that a lotta times. They beat the white ball players in. So that's something right there. And so when i totally stories just in our family. There's we call josh gibson big josh. 'cause josh gibson junior of course is the sense that you can't say jockey get confused. I wanted to ask you about one of big joshes more famous nicknames. He was called very famously. The black babe. When you hear that sean about your great grandfather how does that make you feel you know. Let's say this bridge. Stevens bakers great grandson. He's one of my good friends. We go back and forth back and forth on this all the time. I didn't know that okay. Tell me about your relationship with him. And what you guys talk about on this regard. That's great so burn. Stevens is bait roof. Great grandson and so we always talked about. You know josh gibson's compared to my grandfather. And i'm like well that's what you but if you ask me about. Bay roof is a white josh gibson. So we go back and forth. Is we always say our people always say Yankee stadium was called the house. Ruth bill in ice t's brent are okay but who hit the furthest home running stadio i give them on that one. Well i mean. I want to even push that. Story further sean. Because i grew up going yankee stadium. He's the only human being to ever hit a fair ball out of the park out of the house. That babe ruth ledley built. I don't want to rub it in his face to. I don't go that far. I just say the furthest rebel. We all know he headed out. The ballpark. we know is over near babe. Ruth kane close no all seriously. I've heard several stories two different stories. I heard it. It's out of the ballpark. Been a heard from some players that hit like the top tier of moammar. So you wrote a piece of the undefeated in august about your grandfather's name being on the mvp trophy. And that may have been unthinkable at one point but now it does feel like there could be momentum towards that. Why is this important to you and your family. Then the peak kinda fell on our lap on. This happened to read an article about terry pendleton barry. Larkin and mike schmidt. Making a case to remove kennesaw Mountains landers name off the mvp award and it gets to okay. Well here at a names that they're considering replacing the name with in his frank robinson branch rickey and go shoot josh gifts literally again on the phone with my board directors. I said listen. We just found herself in a race. Let's see how we can win it so for us. I'm hoping that the vwa taking consideration of this and really think twice when they make a decision to rename this after josh gibson but this mvp war if this may not. The jaw is just about josh gibson. This will carry on the legacy of all the other great players as well. Who were denied the opportunity. So josh gibson is carrying several thousand players on his shoulders but his vp award the page. Family the buck leonard. Cool up a bail family. Turkey stars fan oscar charleston. Family all great players will all celebrate. It'll be named after josh. But every time i speak about this i'll make sure represent all the family members who were denied the opportunity

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.
"josh jacobs" Discussed on Clock Dodgers Podcast - Motivation | Fantasy Football | Comedy | Pop Culture
"NPR Josh Jacobs was be ranked twenty one. All these running backs? So there's no way he goes less than that for me. Okay. Now you're saying well at twenty one that really doesn't bode so great like that's not that awesome I mean almost the twenty is good but it's not what you're looking for Josh goes I agree with you I believe do better than that where he landed last year if we just say you have to look at everybody. When we're looking at Alex here, we have to say this guy's GonNa play a full season. We can't mess around and say, well, what if he doesn't stay healthy like I can't look at it that way it just doesn't work for me. So I'M GONNA assume Josh Jacobs is healthy if I just assumed Josh Jacob is healthy he he bumps up this list dramatically just off of the extra three green three games. So. Just the extra three games. He's easily for me top fifteen. If we say. Plays complete season so that for that for just off of last year's production, no nothing increase in just lashes production a production and a full slate of games. He's easily top fifteen running back for me now takes them out of the top twenty one right that's a big jump. Now, I do believe if you've seen reports, Josh Jacobs is focused on his running his his pass catching ability this year he has mentioned himself. He has mentioned that he was you know pretty happy with his results on running the ball, but he wants to score more touchdowns that way but. Pass catching his where he wants to improve the most this year he's been working on a ton and he's not doing it for nothing right? Like he knows this is an part of his game, the raiders no, it needs to be important part of his game and for those who hate coachspeak Jon Gruden himself said that he fell Josh Baker Shiben rookie of the year. that. They're gonNA feed him the ball a crazy I know allow people hate coachspeak. They cringe just here in the word coachspeak but I don't like to totally ignore coachspeak There's positive coaching negative coachspeak some of it comes true. Some of it doesn't these guys are drinking the Kool aid of their players they're just talking to in some people's minds as that's fine. But. I do believe Josh Jacobs No. He knows he needs to improve as pass kitchen back the raiders no they need to get him involved more pass kitchen back I understand you guys, I. Understand people want to see a Theo riddick they wanna see a devante booker they wanna see a Jalen restart who's been there already right Jalen restart is cool but he's been there. So we're not there's no reason to expect Jalen Shar to steal the opportunity of more pass catching ability for for Josh because when he's already been there so. He's already been there Indiana Washington's gone, he was running back there last year. So so when you take those away their. Jailer himself isn't a threat to Josh. J. Goes in in a capacity of reception's not to mention Josh doesn't need a ton of more receptions to make this matter dramatically So there there's a very I would project Josh Jacobs to be a top ten running back Here's the thing when you look at rankings, it's easy to put a lot of guys in the top ten or top fifteen. There's a lot of good running backs if things played out well for everybody, how how would you know love for it to work? There's a lot of really good running backs whether they all say healthy whether covert affects seems dramatically you know. All these things matter how bad their offense is ended up being but like the the running backs really good. There's a lot of really good right back. There's a lot of fun and exciting guys especially when you include PR, which is the only way I play I don't understand another life away of life and fantasy football You could really move guys around heavily in in the in the running back rank we discuss on the podcasts generally speaking in with wire receiver this year where you get a guy, you know barely in the thirty range and then you could also pointed out town like there's a scenario that plays out that way So Yeah Josh? Jacobs. For me definitely has the potential a top ten running back tough fifteen is is a lock to give in for me. So this hopefully, this helps you guys understand where I feel about him and hopefully helps you project yourself where if you don't have him yet, you're GonNa you know you're thinking about drafting him or you're thinking about trading for him I would definitely checking what the Josh Jacobs owner to see how he feels about. You know he might not be that high out of he might believe that you know Lynn. Bowden, is really gonNA. EAT INTO Josh Jacobs a pass catching ability. He might really believe Dante Booker Devante booker theoretic already threat They may believe that if they believe that definitely, go get him definitely go get him if you are in a redraft league. He's definitely worth drafted. It just depends on how much someone else's in. Love with him right now you know unless you got a raider fan in your league or someone who's really high on Josh Jacobs you know he's not going to be terribly hard to get an okay value. Again. It just depends on how much you like other people around him other players around him But yeah, I feel Josh Jacobs. No question has topped tenability Ligon. Definitely. End Up in that range. He's a lock for top fifteen. No questions about it. There's guys who you know. You could be projected to be top ten right now. And I mean you. You know everyone's rampant of Clyde Edwards, Hilar-. Right? I mean Josh. Jacobs did it already so we'll see what? He can do in that offense and who's in a you know who's in a mess with him there you've got guys like mile. Sanders are projecting really high..
"josh jacobs" Discussed on Clock Dodgers Podcast - Motivation | Fantasy Football | Comedy | Pop Culture
"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.
"josh jacobs" Discussed on Vegas Nation - Raiders Football
"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
"josh jacobs" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"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

"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..
