A highlight from LGM Podcast: Pennant Races Wind Down

Also, all of the marketing possibilities with your home team. Hello, and welcome to the Lawyers, Guns, and Money podcast. This is Eric Loomis, and I'm here with Rob Farley and Scott Lemieux to discuss the general state of sports right now, particularly baseball, probably a little bit of football. Gentlemen, how are you all doing? Very well. There's also an obscure politically relevant hockey topic I could bring up too. We could always talk hockey around here, which might be more of a monologue for you, but hey, that's... Hockey and racism. That's the game on ice. But it's been a lot since we talked about sports here. Right now, it's August 30th is when we're recording this, and baseball is reaching its pennant races, or playoff races I guess is more appropriate these days. They're very interesting this year. Particularly, I think we should start with the official or unofficial perhaps team of LGM, which is our Seattle Mariners. So, what a run for the Mariners, and I was wondering what thoughts you guys had about what's going on here and maybe talk about the ALS generally. Well, as Eric and I, I don't know how many times I had this conversation earlier this summer, I was just brimming with confidence about the Mariners, particularly that offense. Every time Dylan Moore came up in a big spot, it was just great. No, I was... I was kind of on the fence. I know on our major league preview, Dave was pretty optimistic, and then I think the rest of us were like, consciously optimistic, but perhaps a little more skeptical, and I think I might have been the most skeptical. And then really for the first half of the year, the team was actually worse than even I had anticipated. Good pitching, but just really desultory offense. Particularly with Julio being a little off, and there's not just much else going on. The Mariners having their annual second base disaster, the curse of Sean Figgins, showing up in Colton Wong. What was his final slashline? It was genuinely horrific. Yeah, like I just... And one thing to see, Jesse Winkers also on his way out of the league. You know, so it ended up being kind of a wash no trade, but boy what a disaster it was. I mean, it was not a bad move. I mean, yeah, so he had a 241 on base, 227 slugging. And one year ago, he slugged 430, and the year before that, 447. I don't know what it is that happens when the something about the Mariners and second base are not mixed. And Adam Frazier was awful for us last year, has been a perfectly competent member of the Orioles this year. So I don't know what's going on there. But anyway, and it's weird that the team almost turned around when they released Wong, not saying he was the only problem there. But you know, and what's interesting is that the pitching staff has been excellent all year. And I think that the Mariners rotation has been top three in ERA all season. And I believe they're now first in the majors in the ERA. I may be wrong, but it's close, if not so. Really, really strong rotation led by Castillo. Scott's surveys always has good bowl pens. And one thing is that they were able to use their annual pump and dump, sort of creating a closure out of Paul Siewald and trading that for a couple of useful depth pieces that they really needed, even though they've had a little bit of problem in the back end. So yeah, it's surprising, obviously led by Rodriguez. But obviously, it's been really encouraging how they've played over the last couple of months. And it would be nice if they could win the series against the A's as the rubber match is ongoing as they speak. But yeah, it's been pretty exciting over the last month. And I'm looking forward to going back to the park. I mean, it's interesting. I think that when they traded Siewald, it was sort of like, well, what really is Dominic Canzone and Josh Rojas? I mean, they seem like a couple of marginal players and they actually played pretty well, both of them in Seattle. But I mean, it seemed like what they did ultimately was just give him, give service a lot more platoon options and a lot more mix and match stuff that he's been using at the back end of the lineup so that if it makes sense to go more or Matt Ford or Caballero, then that's fine. But Cade Marlowe has been a pretty good call up. And then Canzone and Rojas, I mean, that's a lot of options, each of which is functional to slightly more than functional in the right circumstance against the right pitchers. And I think that makes a lot of sense. And then, you know, Telenik will get, you know, should be back here for whatever that's going to really be given that he was, after that good start with sort of sliding back into his usual suckiness as the season went on. But they should have a lot of options in September. So I think it'll be, you know, I like the way the team sort of made moves mid -year to change its construction, even though, as you say, is Munoz really a reliable closer? Well, it's been a couple of times where it doesn't seem to such so. But, you know, but you certainly have to like where the team is in a three -way tie for the West with cratering a Rangers team and an Astros team that, of course, is going to remain competitive, but has its own flaws. Yeah, I mean, this is this is such a remarkably interesting division, right? I mean, and, you know, one of these teams is not going to go to the playoffs, right? I mean, we're operating in the assumption we're going to have a division winner. We're going to have, you know, one of the teams is probably going to be the wild card, but one of them is not going to go to the playoffs. Well, no, no, because there's three wild card teams now. Is it three wild card teams now? Yeah, so Toronto, I mean, you know, somebody's going to be out, but it could be, it could be the Blue Jays. Oh, okay. You see, I was this was a rules update that I was unaware of. But, yeah, the season ended today. Seattle, Texas, and Houston would all be in and the Blue Jays are actually three and a half games behind the Astros. So that's they're actually have work to do. Yeah, that's that's actually quite interesting in terms of the National League as well. But I think the more critical point about this particular division is that, you know, you have you have one of the worst rosters in the history of baseball in this division. And I would I would hazard that the Oakland A's are not the biggest train wreck in this division, right? I mean, I think that the the Angels, you know, are having one of these catastrophic seasons that even though they're not going to end up the worst team in this division because of the A's, you know, this is this is a sort of great train wreck of a team in terms of its wasted potential, catastrophic its complete use of two of the biggest stars, two of the most talented players, not just in Major League Baseball, but in baseball around the world.

Julio Rosas Exposes Bad Actors at Trump Arraignment in Miami
"There's a lot of, you know, terrific journalists on the ground, like senior writer for town hall, Julia Rosas, who joined us from Miami to share what the scene was like outside the Miami federal courthouse where president Trump was arraigned. Julio, you've done such a great job in your reporting over the years of sort of infiltrating some of these bad faith actors. In fact, a week or two ago outside Disney world in Orlando, there were a group of people that were carrying Nazi swastikas and, uh, supposedly being as DeSantis supporters. But you know, that's something that you've had your eye on in terms of watching for people who pretend to be representing one side or the other, but ultimately Julio, we find out they're, they're not, they're not, you know, these are, these are bad actors. These are people almost play acting a role to try to smear the side that they oppose. Yeah. I mean, there's history to that, right? We have a whole, uh, Charlottesville, Lincoln project, potentially campaigns during the governor election up in Virginia. Uh, so it's, it's interesting, right? Because there is a reason why they like to hide their faces. And it's either because they truly are Nazis and they want to make sure they don't get found out, uh, in their, in their regular life, or they are people who aren't and are just doing that to make the other side look bad. So, I mean, politics is a very dirty game, especially when it comes to, uh, politicians that are as polarizing as someone like, uh, governor Ron DeSantis and obviously here with, uh, former president Donald Trump. So we'll have to see, we'll have to see what happens if any arrests were made and see if there's any identity identity that goes along with it. So that's why, uh, there is concern. I mean, I, it's, it's not, it's not unheard of for things to get crazy,

NYC Drugging Robberies Arrest-drugs intro w
"New York City police arrest another man they are calling the final suspect in a series of drugging death sand robberies involving men at gay bars in Manhattan. In all 5 men are charged as part of a conspiracy in which drugs were used to commit a series of robberies, three of those men are charged with murder after John and Berger and Julio Ramirez died last spring. Mayor Eric Adams pushes back at critics who say it took too long to investigate. Sometimes the desire to get it right. Collides with the immediate sea that people would like to see injustice. Many other gay bars were also targeted some with fentanyl laced drugs and robbed through cash apps, but survived. Die Alvin Bragg says, despite the LGBTQ connection, this is not a hate crime. There's no evidence of targeting under the law. But that does not undo the sort of trauma. Other similar investigations are underway. Julie Walker, New York.

The End of DACA?
"So if you're someone who is a dreamer right now who does not have daca. You can have daca right. Is that correct. Yeah i think like in the most basic of census right like that is probably the interpretation that most folks are walking away. And if you know you're an outsider. Meaning that you don't have or you're trying to essentially figure something out that might just be the simplest way to look at it but for the people who are in the process of applying for dhaka for the first time right they are seeing a lot of very specific questions that have quite just been answered right. Judge heynen though federal judge in the southern district of texas who has been essentially overseeing a variety of different cases on this subject as made no secret that he's not a fan of the daca program so people need to understand that first and foremost number two his ruling basically states that new applicants as you mentioned julio people who are in the process of applying for dhaka for the first time short of them being fully approved into the program will no longer be eligible for the program. What exactly does that mean. May the young daca applicant. Who says well. I sent in my application. It was received. I gotta biometrics appointment. This is where they go and take your finger branson that take a photo and all this jazz. You know i did dad. I haven't heard back from you. If my application going to be considered is gonna be frozen. It's going to be thrown away and that's kind of where we are at earlier this week. We saw that. Uscis basically said in a statement. You know we acknowledge that this is happening. Where abiding by the court order. There will be more guidelines following up. So i i actually have it up on my phone because i tweeted out and it's interesting because let me just break this down because it says i'm rita and this came out on july nineteenth and i'm glad you brought it up because i was kind of like my next question but let's let's give the people some context. This is the giving people some context portion of the show so basically they say you know based on the order issued by the us district court for the southern district of texas and texas. The united states department of homeland security is enjoined from granting initial daca requests. Basically saying you haven't even started like don't even try

"julio" Discussed on The Nat Coombs Show
"Shirtless with your fiancee and tropical climates. Is that passive aggressive. Urs just sort of like you're giving everybody else the foam all right like i. I don't know that that's towards green bay. You're not tagging them in your tweet but you're making a very aware you're having a great time being away for them. This is leaving the believing your girlfriend after ten years and making sure you've got a picture of yourself at a concert or on a beach somewhere with or new girlfriend or is exactly the sort of walk in terms of social media. Faux pas where remember when floyd mayweather was doing a live facebook or instagram live with troops american troops stationed out in the middle east and he was showing the his house and a part of his shara racket. Mtv cribs style. I think involved either. A suitcase was suddenly a very large pile of money. Do you probably to be too because trading on for that particular david. I wonder whether that same thing with aaron rodgers and the green bay packers fans right. Now do you really wanna be wanna be seeing that possess resolute with this. That he's that he's gonna. So why are you so sure. Why do you think this is the end of the road. i think it just. It's about when it came out on draft day. And i think only aaron can control that narrative. I don't think that's going to aaron rodgers and saying guess. What if you know if you don't give me a little more details. Throw me a few more breadcrumbs. We're going to let this out. I think aaron rodgers well aware of the story line and the narrative that we did the draft together with we'll gavin and twenty twenty and we were really surprised by By the pick of jordan love we just were and we thought about it at the time. And even quarterbacks get drafted since the beginning of time especially late in rounds when you've got an established quarterback already even though that's the case we just knew it would land differently in green bay because there's been this great debate and i think i know i speak of our colleague will gavin. Who's been adamant as a forty niners fan. It's not a big green bay packers span that there's no. There's no wiggle room for complaints for green bay about all pros. They've had all pro receivers for aaron rodgers. Nave had all pro lineman for aaron rodgers. They've had all pro linebackers play. Matthews's patrolling the the a four three defense as a middle linebacker was one of the best in the business for almost a half decade. I don't think aaron rodgers. Unlike maybe a dan marino dan fouts or lots of guys. Pre salary cap archie. Manning could complain about the talent around. I don't think aaron gets to do that. Because how do you keep making the nfc title game. How do you keep doing that. How do you keep winning. Twelve games every year. Run a bad football team so it doesn't ring true. But the fact that he put that out there on draft day and that leaks and it was dominated dominated your coverage mike coverage. Everybody's football this. It was trevor lawrence. Who's that. I have no idea what we're not we're like. We're like a dog getting distracted by car and then we start chasing a cat. That was it that was trevor. Lawrence is supposed to be coronation of trevor lawrence for jacksonville instead. It's like well. What would the broncos pay with. What would what would the chart or the the broncos and the raiders is the raiders off. Derek carr what would be the price involved we go to the afc. Stay in nfc based on the timing of that. Because i think aaron rodgers could have controlled that narrative in that that may have been passive aggressive but to me now. Nothing's been resolved so it's just plain aggressive almost two months later i think he's played his last game as a packer. 'wow well if he has. You mentioned two teams. I think with rogers. There's about said that the two most likely destinations that maybe they are uncertain. Logic would prevail that both of those teams in particular would look at a quarterback change more readily than many others. But then you took about aaron rodgers right. So i think most teams are in play with the exception of jacksonville cincinnati and kansas city. And maybe a handful of pretty much. Any team is theoretically in play right. Oh yeah i yeah trying to think i mean. There's obvious i think there's always those levels of we are so in love with our quarterback or we love him because he's done great things in the past so you're hesitant to move off manning and the giants right would be a great example of that. I think that element was there later. Flacco and the ravens for a long time. Yeah that's exact- that's a great example as well like there's a sense of loyalty even big ben. There's a loyalty in pittsburgh to ben rothlisberger. Who still. Ken have his moments and still can get done at various times. And let's face it. They don't start that playoff. Game against cleveland so disastrously in some of that was the bad snap. Got that what rolled into the end zone. mean can't see. A team started playoff game a home playoff game. No less worse than than pittsburgh did in those ten minutes but yeah they're and then there's just the well we kind of like. But if you have an idea. Jared goff would be that example for me with the rams if you have ideas to how we can upgrade. We're all ears and we're listening like look at all. The chitchat about miami to talk about is the highest draft picks. I since i can't think a win for the miami dolphins they drafted ryan tannehill which you mentioned eighth overall. But you gotta go way back. And it wasn't david woodley and it wasn't dan marino and brady quinn He was a cleveland. Browns draft picks that ended up there. Little so i can't think of who it is but there was chatter all year that well they. They'll upgrade to. Of course they'll try and do that so i think there's a there's several teams that you look at. You say there's not a real love affair going on with the quarterback and the head coach or the quarterback and the team infrastructure right. They're a bunch of them and there are in the nfc east. Obviously i think i think the giants would upgrade at the snap of finger on daniel jones even with an aaron rodgers gave them only three or four more years i think we agree washington would-be in the market chicago would have been before. Justin fields was drafted. So it's tough. I think denver. Denver seems to be that team. You tell me if i'm wrong. Denver just seems to be a team that everybody's isolating and i know we're going to talk about the shawn watson and the potential for denver later in this podcast but the broncos feel like the most obvious team. That's going to have a different quarterback in week one of this year than they did..

"To the show on. Espn good to have you with us. Gang good to be back and delighted to welcome one about all time. Faves one of the all pro lineup on the show. The brilliant greg brady all the way in toronto back to chin wag the latest stories from a big leagues going to dive into some of your questions from the mail bag as well. Thanks very much indeed for those. Let's get straight to it and welcome mr great brady greg brady. It is always a pleasure to see you in person. You and i've been working a fair bit together over the last couple of months. We were just musing as we are about to start recording the show. How utterly secret by face are you on a a scale of one to ten not terribly not terribly and And i wish i was seeing him person. I had tickets for five-year-old matches my uk based friends. Were quite jealous. They got shut out of the ballot. As you call it. We'd call it a lottery. you call about. that's okay. We get some boards wrong over here to trend in all of those tickets. Five for five like a baseball player. Having a great day is at the leadoff spot five five. They all get cancelled. They all get refunded so knowing on croatia no no holland austria amsterdam which was supposed be next thursday's on any of the games no disappointingly although i am going to be watching it religiously with my two boys of course who having had successful season at west ham. I've had told them to drink that in. Because that's gonna you never know what happens again. That's what i'm hoping will shine on england in the maybe we'll have a similar similarly. What you're saying that you know. The world cup was a successful turn. So maybe we can. I think there's i think this is. Nobody wants to picking when to win. But i think there's three teams that can win and this will all You know somebody'll will track down this podcast five weeks from now and go. Wow you really do you. Even watch the sport. It's it's france it's belgium and it's england although i'm selling myself on portugal. I think this portugal team more talented. Bend two thousand sixteen teams that. They're really believe that there was no bruno. Fernandez there's no ruben diaz the rinaldo still rinaldo. I think thinking about how bad they were also in the in the group. Stage three draws. They gave up four goals. This team is a powerhouse. But i think we're we're hesitant to pick them because we're like. Wow they won last time. So who does it twice the that team yet. I definitely everyone's raving on saturday. So about the the francie on paper but how often is the best team on paper get done. Hey not just in football and the nfl. Quite frankly as well. North macedonia is worth going there. The we need to link the euro teams. This time round with nfl teams like stuff. You don't want to say north macedonia jets. You don't wanna do that. Because the jets have allowed infrastructure and plenty of opera. We don't want say the detroit. Lions are scotland. Think that would alienate. We were talking about the other night. Five aside Scotland england one. They'll activist who was already bust. One nil threat third minute goal scrappy set piece goal. England will create very little and could plow out of the tournament because of the scott. You had us. I let that then that would make them not the detroit lions because they'd a win an important game let alone a playoff game since nineteen ninety-one tell you a quick story. I'm covering first summer over there in euro ninety six. I'm covering queens club right. The hill artois barons court tube. Stop that's i know it well. And it's the semi final on the saturday and thomas moose actually the number one seed. He couldn't play well on grass. So i think he loses to stefan edberg. It was a very retro summer. Summer britpop but edberg. Becker played in the final in ninety six and they were both of older guys. They first met in the In the wimbledon final in nineteen eighty eight so there are older and and we hear a roar in the stands at center court at at sell. Artois we hear roar. Roar is is the save of the gary mcallister penalty miss after one. Ill england yes louis here that and you know what comes next about a minute later every year. A bigger roar. It's the gaza goal off. The foot volley off the foot. That makes it too so the tremendous memories of that and again. You can't look yeah you have no idea going on so it becomes whisper. It's a game a broken telephone. Are you sure you just had a penalty. Missed and gaza went right down the field of basically from midfield and scored and it's two new england. Yeah that happened greg. Brady i blink. I it feels like only yesterday. Yeah many ways. That was something that was. What is summer. That was good times and a lot to be getting into for us on this. Get you back on this show. By the way we think radio together. Great to have you back in the espn house. Let's start with what we're going to start with. Julio the big story of the last seven days no doubt about. It wasn't surprised that he was out of atlanta. Because hey drop that bomb on national television. A couple of weeks back with shannon's skip but we were speculating where the destination would be. Those seem to be a few a few logical and viable landing spots the titans. Get the job done. A twenty twenty two second round pick. They've got a fourth round twenty twenty three as well the flipping that for six round and the twenty-three draft and they're absorbing 'cause all of the dollars and cents to the tennessee titans so atlanta off the hook and that was what a lot of this deal was predicated on that they needed to balance the books but nevertheless the losing one of that all time greats greg brady and he's landing at a contenders spot. So the question is is julio strong enough at age thirty two with all of those miles on the clock take the titans to the next level. Yeah i think i know. There's football left there. Obviously and the titans obviously feel that way and if they hadn't stepped up in times like these not you always want to know what the second best offer was. Because i don't think we look and say. The falcons overpaid remember as well. The falcons own twitter account to go social media. It's not everything but it's something. Put out a report that that be priced to get. Julio jones out of atlanta falcons official twitter accounts not a fan blog or anything. The falcons official twitter account puts out a tweet that says reports are the price is a first round draft pick for the atlanta. That's like me saying the price for my Two thousand eighteen hundred santa fe in the driveway right now is one hundred thousand pounds like wanna get it you can. You can hope that somebody will pay it. And i love that car. It's it's you know it's still got a couple of color. What are we going to accept. How's it.

"julio" Discussed on The Trendzone
"It gets enough snaps under his belt with rodgers. Not there that he can. He can get it really going. who knows. It reminds me of a young uncle. Rico well dave you know who was back on the field minicamp my guy dak prescott baby man. Yeah man and mccarthy expects back to be a forego for the training camp coming off that bum ankle issue there and that is exciting news for the cowboys catalyze dude after what we saw last october. And how awful that pit. My stomach feld just not knowing what the hell is going on and seeing how tragic the rest of the season was. That's out good news and there are hopefully going to be out here in oxnard and maybe do some joint practices with the rams. So that's all tvd but it is very exciting for the cowboy fans. I like joints. Okay haitao dave why we're here baby. Julio jones it seemed like he was only a matter of time before this trade went down specifically june first but julio jones officially at tennessee toy yeah man and wow the titans getting jones falcons of course get out of it a twenty twenty two second rounder in a two thousand twenty three fourth rounder and the titans get julio jones in a six rounder back in two thousand three pretty awesome acquisition. Obviously huge talent so they titans take on jones's salary of fifteen point three million and two more years after that but he does has made some sounds noises as if he would like a restructuring. At least probably at the end of this. Next season falcons of course seven point seven five million dollars in dead money this year as a result of moving jones's contract but they were under the gun in terms of their salary cap. They needed to do something. And this was the piece they had to get rid of. Yeah dude they didn't even have money to sign their draft class you move. Julio aging superstar you draft picks a tight end you have calvin ridley emerging as one of the the top receivers in this league. So david this feels like a win. On the falcons but this might be their second win on this. Julio de aza when we go back in time to to the twenty eleven drag. Gotta do me another casey thomas to dmitrov dude and it was a huge trade. Actually he can't contact check bell check said no no too much too much to give up but he went ahead and did it anyways right they. They were selecting twenty seven. They traded that pick with the browns to get up to the sixth pick overall and they gave up their first. Rounder that twenty-seventh pick as well as their second and fourth rounders in two thousand eleven and their first and fourth rounders. And so it seemed like a crapload that they gave up for. Julio here but the browns of course made all those picks and it's a package of dudes that don't amount to. Julio jones career by any stretch of the imagination they got brandon. Weeden was the starter for a little while the quarterback position but we ultimately that we'd man did not win the trade. For the browns the falcons came away pretty good and now after ten years of great service from julio they get a little something back to sort of mitigate originally gave up for him so atlanta well done yeah dude and now you're getting one of the best all times to tennessee offense that you know is not lacking for that big play but you look at what julio's done and you know it's so impressive dude. Oh no question. Yeah i mean obviously over the ten years that he's been there with the falcons he's just been a dominant player..
"julio" Discussed on The Trendzone
"Zone callow to trenton. Casey who were they were the football. Dude dave are you ready. My brother got that right. My friend i all there. Our next stop is the trend zone in today's episode. We'll check in with mandatory minicamp in green bay and see if their main man was there. Also we'll talk about the huge trade. That sent julio jones to the titans at what that means for both the titans ended the falcons. And we're gonna shove all our chips to the middle of the table as remember an nfl. Coaching legend day. Before we get rolling brother. Do you have a tasty. chris. People's i'm going to give a little to the peeps casey. I'll tell you what the seventeenth game. Casey the fact that it's nfc versus afc has resulted in some pretty tasty matchups including fourteen super bowl. Rematches in this twenty twenty one season the biggest season ever including super bowl. One packers at chiefs in week nine. That sounds awesome. Actually the most recent super bowl matchup that will be rekindled will be the patriots falcons. That's week eleven man. That's thursday night or two. Obviously the falcons might have a little vengeance on their minds. They're right yeah that beka still little honoring how that second. Half point ary falcons dave. Speaking of anri bro. Aaron rodgers there was speculation if he would or would not show up for. Mini camp was a no show at packers. Mandatory minicamp on tuesday confirming a lack of grunted. Mvp he also missed ota's for the first time in his career this spring. But dave those were voluntary and what do voluntary mean. hey man it doesn't mean mandatory. That's for sure. And you know by skipping this minicam casey. It's the first time he's ever done. And it's costing a mini campus him. Ninety three thousand which is trump change. He's already given up five hundred thousand dollars for missing. Ota in terms of a workout bonus right but that's nothing compared to what he would be giving up if he were to stay away. And let's say. I guess retire it would be giving up his fourteen point seven million dollar salary for this year and he'd have to have to pay back just about thirty million bucks dude. That's almost forty five million dollars to not play football coming off the mvp season man. Well too bad. They haven't been able to find any pictures of that. Infamous roger sour by running that d role. He's always smile man. Yeah did you know that might be bad. News for packers hand but there is some good news jordan love but is that good news for packer fans if well according to espn's rob demovsky. Casey love has quote struggled with accuracy during practice. That's kind of important especially when you're not really playing against the defense right. Obviously you know not the best sign going. Twelve of twenty three in the l. Team activities there as well as the failed. Two minute drill man but you know they did see the bright side. Which is that arm. That they liked the arm strength. Is there casey. So they've got raw talent there. And maybe he gets over the jitters..
"julio" Discussed on The Lab
"Is that really saying all that much. I think vegas has him is like an eight one team or seven team. This is now a seventeen game season. So that's not even five hundred. So i don't know i don't know where we're at with atlanta i. I think that's about right though. They they could get lucky. I'm more pessimistic. On matt matt ryan just based on what i saw. I don't watch a lot of falcons games. But i remember that we. I think it was week fourteen against the chargers where he threw a bunch of looked. He did not look like the same quarterback. And i think tom brady is kind of lawless. All under thinking that there is no aging in the quarterback position. But i was thirty five. He's got a guy. I wonder so. I guess my question is i wonder whether if they could do it all again in no that. Julio is gone whether they would have kind of taken a quarterback in that draft position. Whether it's trae lance or whoever i i mean i think it was a huge mistake i mean we don't. I don't even think we need to know if either of those quarterbacks will be good to be able to say that. It was a process mistake not to take a quarterback with the fourth overall pick. I think you know just the value differential between quarterback and everyone else is just so large. That i don't quite understand it and from the very beginning the in atlanta is nowhere fought. I don't know the exact pronunciation i apologized. But he e had been telegraphing from the very beginning of his tenure that he was going to get rid of. Julio so it was just always in the cards it seemed He restructured matt ryan's contract. When you get that year as a gm where you kinda blow things up if you want to and you can do with impunity. Owner doesn't get mad. The fan base in media. Don't get mad. And he took a pass on all that he basically said. I'm now i'm gonna put my stamp of approval on basically what we had before and kind of kind of move this thing forward for another year and try and compete passed on just in fields passed on i guess mcjohnson about that pick was gone because he went to san francisco but it was there. That's right that's right. Yeah yeah it would have been a good pick. I agree and although he's such a projection. He's just like all raw talent. Like josh allen redux but anyway i'm kind of rambling but i think i think to the point you were making about about Atlanta i think the kind of all always in the cards julia was leaving. And i think that's wild. It really is surprising. You know for for for what he has done what he even seasons where he was injured and missed games. What he did while he was in those games as you showed in your piece. Josh was just such high level production and to not want to keep a a a player like that around to keep him. Happy is just confusing to me. I i don't understand it really. And it seems like the falcons are now kind of caught in the middle like they didn't want to commit to rebuilding around a new quarterback like you said they didn't draft someone they took pits which is a move. That sort of is seen as extending matt ryan's window of Being viable starter yet. Also at the same time losing..
"julio" Discussed on The Lab
"Hole of the week on sunday. The falcons announced the deal to send wide receiver. Julio jones to the tennessee titans in exchange for a second round pick in the twenty twenty two nfl draft and a fourth round. Pick and twenty twenty three jones one of just twenty five wide receivers with at least twelve thousand career receiving yards and he now joins star receiver a j brown and running back derrick henry on the titans and also you know ryan tannehill quarterback that was a sticking point for keyshawn johnson who weighed in on the trade on espn's k. j. z. Show tenny heels. Not all of a sudden throwing the ball fifty times a game. You're spending money or receivers as if throwing the ball fifty times a game. Does it make sense for the organization. In my opinion we are delighted to be joined today by our fivethirtyeight colleague and fell analyst. Josh her spire. Hi josh how's it going on. So you wrote a great piece last week in anticipation of trade about julio and where he is at this stage in his career do you agree with keyshawn johnson. That this move doesn't really make sense for the titans. Honestly i'm not entirely sure what ki- shawn's talking about i mean but first of all what team doesn't get better with. Julio catching passes i mean he's probably the best wide receiver in the nfl and like despite an injury marred season last year. He probably i think has quite a bit left in the tank. He's got most of his speeds still and that really helps open up the intermediate routes for him because the has to worry about him going over the top and and in tennessee offense. That's actually a pretty great fit if they continue to go play action heavy because that middle intermediate part of the field is usually pretty open for them with the with the way they run their offense and the threat of derrick henry taking it to the house anytime he touches the touch the ball but but also and here's a part that i also disagree with keyshawn on it is that the titans lost like one hundred fifty targets last year in the form of jonnu smith who signed with new england and corey davis who signed with the jets. So there's definitely some room in that offense for a player like julio in and they needed another downfield threat in tennessee pretty badly and and if you need the downfield threat right you can't do much better than julio and i don't know and i guess finally he's talking about him being overpaid and i just don't see it a second round pick just think that's a perfectly reasonable price for a guy like julio a future hall of famer. I think it feels like kind of cheap price to be honest. I mean i don't know if you would categorize it that way..
"julio" Discussed on NFL: Move the Sticks with Daniel Jeremiah & Bucky Brooks
"And now move the sticks with daniel jeremiah and bucky brooks. What's up everybody. Walking to move the sticks. Tj bucky back with your buck. Let's be honest here. I was going get right into the podcast. But i looked at the screen. You giggling like a school girl. I need to know what's going on in your world right now. I'm just laughing because the stuff that we're gonna talk about later so i'm trying to originate. I saw you just like a buck. You just haven't like he's got a stand up comedian and his head right now. He's doing life. Yeah because i'm trying to figure out anytime we have a hoard a hoard number about who's number one one two five and stuff like that. I'm trying to figure like which fan base do. I really want to deal with the yeah. That's that's what it troll which fan bases bucket control I mean the We'll get into oregon soccer here. We're gonna talk about wide receiver. Said we're talking about julio's sign with the titans. Something we talked about a little bit last week. But what does it mean going forward. And we're gonna go division by division. We're gonna rank who we think is the number one Pass catching duo in each division. So you can throw tight ends in there as well. But i'm gonna go out and say okay. The fan base is that you could get most riled up we will go with a really Buffalo bills might be number one for me. The bills yet fired up about things. Bills mafia They get you know. Raven's flock gets a little. Yeah sensitive bigalow testy to if you say some things that are out of pocket raider nation in like cowboys cowboys cowboys. Sides of it. Yeah like cowboys but man Raider nation will will get upset and the browns the dog pound the dog pound a you some sideways about one of their gas. Yeah i would say still of of every team. I'd say you know what. Jags are. Sneaky to the. Jags have a very very faithful following their. That's very passionate. But i would say if you're talking still love hate right. The most people love him. If you add up the number of people that love team and the number of people that hate a team I i still would say. The dallas cowboys would be number one on that list. I mean you know what yourself. America's team that makes it. That's going back forty years or would i know that makes it still. There's people that love to hate the cowboys. When you think about it. Like i mean having won the super bowl in forever yet. Every year is the year talked about every year. So i don't know it's fun. I mean right right off top. This wide receiver. Julio jones thing. I think the outrage to me is being coming crazy because there is a lot of conversation and consternation about the fact that the falcons were only able to get a second round pick and i can't really understand why people are surprised that that's all he bought in return. I mean he's thirty. I'm glad you said that. Because i want to. I want to get your thoughts on that. So our buddy gregg rosenthal on around the league around the around the nfl. What were they were. They were around the league. At one point time were they. I came something like that. I thought that was back in the day. It remember. i never listen to the show. But i i do i do like the fellas. They're good guys But anyways greg hit said the something on on twitter about how he doesn't understand how the value of draft picks Changes from the draft to the off season in other words like he said the jets traded when you look at it..
"julio" Discussed on Fantasy Focus Football
"Mike very bless your head coach if he's got a good understanding of how those veterans one work during the week did not seem to limit. Aj brown last year when he was playing as you know throughout the season with that knee injury that he was managing. I expect the same from julio. I think one of the things that's going to always be a narrative with. Julio is the lack of touchdowns and mike you are the king of regression models in our projections and basically everything. That's used on fantasy football on. Espn i've always believed it. Just been bad luck for. Julio jones do feel that there is any way in project that julio's changing of offense is will mean anything whatsoever about his ability to find the end zone because if he finds the end zone with his yards per game he has read his ten year career as you said like wide receiver. Fifteen might be low on him. Yeah so I think it it. It was a mix of two things. Sometimes he wasn't targeted near the end zone which never made sense to us and other times they be like okay. We're gonna target you near the end zone. It just didn't work so he had like you look at. Twenty seventeen is otd or is Is expected touchdown. Total was the to nine range. You only three touchdowns after that jumped two point five. He scored a touchdown so he was back on track. Twenty nine thousand nine hundred. He had six touchdowns is expected. Total was six point one. He was right on track last season three touchdowns three point nine so. I don't think that it's as severe as people think. It's just a matter of getting in the ball in that area but he certainly had some bad luck at times. A lack of opportunity Again i think that the biggest thing is like i said opportunity. Are you going to get that in an or get more of that in an offense that the nfl touchdowns it said that. For the third time now. I think it's really important over the past few seasons. Yes of course he will. He should get more work down down near the end zone so I think he'll be fine in that department. I believe i have him. If i'm not mistaken with Let's see Project seven touchdowns again. We're not looking at a guy who Who's i'm not projecting jones like prime twenty seven twenty eight year old. Julio jones right in pass heavy offense. I had now second in line rage brand. This is still enough with seventy catches around. Eleven hundred yards seven touchdowns. That's enough to make kim a Just inside the top twenty sort of fantasy wide receiver. So i'm not again. No major concerns there. I guess the only thing you're worried about is the goal line draws near really is derrick henry right. 'cause we know he's he's number is option one two and three when they get to the goal line but after that jones very welcome finished second on this team in touchdowns at the worst. You probably ends up there so we all feel like there's a chance for julio to probably slide somewhere based off. Adp in that wide receiver to be ten to twenty range as a chance may be convinced. The top ten scoring wide to a couple of things break right. He's still a really you really talented guy. Let's get to the field. Oh one more nugget though. I just want to throw in your just to play. Devil's advocate very slightly. Just something to keep in mind if you look back at the past five seasons in the nfl and look at the twenty wide receivers all five seasons of a sample of one hundred only four of those one hundred whereby a player who has h thirty two to open the season they were julian. Edelman twice larry fitzgerald twice. Now that's interesting. That gives me a little pause on him. A little concerned. Just because we've seen that fall off. you know. Maybe that means he settled in as a wide receiver three or maybe it means. He misses some time. Or maybe a means. He's the exception because he is maybe the best wide receiver the nfl over the past decade. So i just wanted to throw that in there. I think it was an interesting. Now get something to keep in mind with leo jones. Well mike you're not the only one that's concerned about that as the nfl was concerned about that right. I mean there. There's a there's a large market are there was excuse me a small market for a guy who will one day have a gold jacket on likely first ballot hall of famer five years after he decides to hang them up. So let's get to the other players that may or may not be impacted by this. Mike i think some people think about aj brown and the fallout aj brown. By the way the second best recruiter in america. Behind only nick satan. Who of course was begging for the titans to acquire. Julio jones bleeding with julio jones to make it happen it worked. Does this make anything. Is this change anything for. Aj browns value to make go up. Go down or is. Aj brown one of those guys. That like i would be the titans number two wide receiver and you'd still feel the same same way about him as you would with. Julio jones's the number two receiver it changes very little. I did take about one percent of a target share weight from him. It made little impact. Maybe a drop them down from wide receiver. Four or five in four to seven or eight. It's it's a small margin Jumping a guy. Like calvin ridley ahead of him. Who will get to later is fine. By my estimation. I did that as well but look i think. The brown brown looks like a superstar without question. I think that the. I think we'd be higher on him. How do you not miss two games early on last year. Because he ended up with a twenty eight percent target share during the weeks he played and was the fourth highest scoring wide receiver. Those weeks of the guy just been terrific is efficiency is off the charts. He's also benefited from this offense. Of course which by the way we should mention you. You mentioned it toward the top. Arthur smith has gone a little nervous about that. You know who is the real reason that offense has been so dominant the past couple years. Is that arthur smith or is it ryan tannehill just being maximized and being in a good situation or is it. The is there henry. Aj brown in these guys that were around ten a hill so There are some more questions within there were a season ago But at the end of the day. I think brandon is just so good can do so much of the volunteers and and again even though julio jones's there's room there's room for a high target share for holy jones because of the players that left so aj brown already had a path to a big target share that should be in the twenty seven to twenty nine percent range. Maybe a pitch higher than that. That's available and that's i really hurt by jones showing up so i still have very high expectations for him Right around thirteen hundred yards and nine touchdowns. Yeah i mean. I feel this again mike. You're speaking the words that i am expecting to speak just a few minutes after you and brown suck unique player too right. I mean i guess the other thing that probably is understood..

Finally in the northeast. So i'm able to get outside a little bit. Get a little. Get a little color on my skin. Went swimming yesterday at the neighbor. So it's been good. Well mike were on zoom so we can see each other so that they are adequately we can interact more normally. I just wanna point outfield. Do you say this. Large life size nascar driver behind sure. Doing i believe that's mark martin. Mike is that correct. You got you got it. It's my guy guys. Since i was a kid i just. I've just noticed he's got you know they're they're known for sponsorships and how they use their sponsorships and in in nascar and all over their jerseys there's much jumps out. I'm not even sure. I talk about it on the podcast. I suppose you can wear a uninsured so might have to explain not on twitter later. Okay so she. I'll explain it. It's it's mark martin. It's a standup card guy. And he's wearing his viagra su he that was the sponsor for a long time mark. Martin had no shame wearing that and it was all about menzel so No there. But i have another one here. Dale earnhardt with his tertiary sponsorship. So that if you prefer chocolate. I move that one ahead. I it's interesting. There's quite a range of sponsors on nascar driver attack attire hunt. You get hershey chocolate. All the way to a men's health so the gover- lot of ground. There is a there literally walking billboards. I'm not really sure how to pivot from that. Julio jones. i'm just gonna go right to it. But i'm sunday morning. Julio jones was traded to the tennessee titans the compensation a second round pick pulse a fourth round pick going from tennessee to atlanta who sends julio jones a six round pick at sick from dickerson. Twenty twenty three in tennessee. There are a lot of tentacles to this but before we get into all the specific element of the fantasy fallout mike. I'll just ask you whether it's fantasy real-life anything between what were your initial thoughts on the julio trade. Well first of all. I'm surprised it's come to this. I mean i know there's been some background reports on it that julio is perhaps one out for a while now But i mean it. Just look if you're if you're the atlanta falcons you'd seems like you made moves this year to to try to win right. It's not necessarily a full on rebuilt. You still have a quarterback nearing the end of his window and matt ryan and you you wanna try to make a super bowl run at his peak like you did a few seasons ago so moving. Julio jones at this point obviously problematic it makes their you know their their Attempt to win that division or get back into the playoffs berry very tough so I don't think it makes a lot of sense from that standpoint but it does make a lot of sense from the titans standpoint. They obviously lost his. We'll get into shortly a lot of a lot of the top targets for ryan tannehill during the offseason so getting a guy like jones in their opposite. Aj brown it takes pressure off both of these guys Which is perfect for jones at his at his age. Obviously h thirty two. So i like it for the titans. I think they did a nice job quietly. Fixing some elements of their defense and the way their offense is played. The past few seasons actually believe it or not number one in offense touchdowns over the past two seasons so bring in a guy like jones obviously helps they're causing Like their chances win that division here to find defining. What are your thoughts on this treated in general before we can finish stuff will he didn't go to my forty nine so that was immediately disappointment because again. We knew he wanted to go to a team. That was gonna win the super bowl so unfortunately for who. He'll i think he made a mistake. 'cause we know going back to the super bowl this year. They plan for it. I did like al shanahan's response though which was basically like you didn't come to us. I mean obviously he knows how talented who is. He was glad that julio went to the afc and in my mind that that meant we're glad he didn't end up at the seahawks if it couldn't be ass speaking of nascar by way kyle shanahan was episode race on sunday. I don't know if you knew. Line country enjoying i highly recommended. I was sitting there thinking to myself because the sound from kyle was on a sunday afternoon. I'm thinking to myself. Nfl coaches get very few free days and head coaches and cal shannon just offering up quote on a sunday and then i realized it was of course because he was a nascar race where there was. Plenty of cameras and microphones random. I'm going to enter the mtv cannon out a little bit here a couple of thoughts and again we will diamond all the fancy stuff in just a moment. But i think people were surprised based off the compensation right thing. Julio jones you think to yourself more than a second round pick i understand. There's a fourth in there as well..

"Smith are in wind now mode win. I think the these moves may be incongruent with that. A talking point for this team falcons want to win now. Terry knowing arthur smith want to win now okay but i also in survived now vote so they they want to win matt now but i would say there are survived now of katie's wired to win but they're not going to go out. This isn't like what happened. With the falcons. The last two or three years you when you rrestructuring guys. You're signing dante fowler. You're you're bringing back. Todd guler early you doing. All the staff which i rode people are upset. Identity was going to work. that's fine. Nobody has to send me an apology. It's okay. I know you still love me in your heart. It's it's cool this narrative that they were in win now mode as you are defining win now was wrong to begin with at said they were wrong. They never wanted to restructure matt. You have to start with that. They were not. They did not want to do it. And i look. I am of the belief that will never going to know the answer to this for truth. But i'm of the belief that when terry fought knowin- arthur smith came to the falcons knew it was a bad kept situation. I'm not sure they knew how bad it really was. Okay into you really started looking at the situation into two. You really started seeing. wow we. there's not too many options here. we can do. Yeah a absolutely one hundred percent guarantee you that font no did not come to atlanta expecting or wanting to restructure maira up. Hey doesn't mean he doesn't want to win now doesn't mean. He doesn't exist capable quarterback but he wants to get out of this cap held at this franchise in an he did it because in in two arthur In concert because they had to survive k. And in the rest happens whatever the rest happens But they were not going all out to win a super bowl this year. I'm sorry this. This spoils the the julio jones kyle pits calvin ridley hayden hers russell gauge you know offense were matt was gonna throw for six hundred yards and seven touchdowns. Every game was a famous chiseled in stone even more so than kyle pits going to the to the to the allah fame. Before he's played. I get it. I totally get it this but this bunk that they were hearing not just and i'm not blaming fans fans fans. I don't mean that as a criticism but you you see things your car okay. Yeah at this bunk. That has been spun by so many national media members can't believe they would do this when they were in when they were never forget in win now mode go all out. The super bowl was not. Do they wanna win. Yes but they're not going to go all out and bury the future even more than saudi beardie to do it. And i don't answer your question. I think that's the right perspective because it is. It has been some of the national media confusing to me. That has been any names. Because they're very nice people in a lot of really no football they. Some people are friends of mine. And i'm dislike. What are you people writing. What are you saying. And i yeah i don't yeah just going to let it go before this guy. Calm down me. I apologize of. I do think though that the it was made to be more simple than the situation really is. And and i think that's and that's almost always the case with these things. You know the whole thing with trading. Julio i think was made to be far more simple than it really was a lot of things at play Including the fact that he wanted out. And i think that probably the best thing to do when you see a situation and it looks black and white is to take a step back and say there's probably some something else going on here. Some additional details. We don't know and i get for fans it's maddening because you wanna know why you wanna know sure. Why is my favorite player. Being shopped around on on the the trade block But again it's these situations are rarely ever just black and white a win now versus for the future. You know if i'm a gm. I want both but that's just mickey. Yeah yeah and and look if we're living in a world like baseball or whatever something raising he can play economic situations in this data caps situation. Then you know. Maybe if julio jones wanted to stay you do it right and money's not an issue lahser owners willing to spend money and you spend money but just not it's just not the reality of life in the nfl. It's not an and they were not going to. I mean i hate to break any anybody's vulgar. They were not gonna win the super bowl this next season with. Julio jones is just any you know that defense looks like how much they have to prove with a running game and you have an offense. Even if you think matt ryan can still play at a high level on. Cd's he can't but you if you think he can. There's a transition with a new office scheme in any new coaching style. You don't know. And while i think this team has been poorly coached couple of years And while i think some guys are going to perform better overall product is going to be better would. There's a lot of players we don't know they're going to respond. We don't know how they're gonna play in the scheme. We don't know how it on both sides of the ball. We don't have responded. These coaches Maybe they peaked already. Maybe the falcons gave money to some guys. I'm not gonna mention names that they should not have. And these guys are all going to be judged on a whole new level with new sets of eyes with no loyalties to the past whatsoever and and there's a lot of the year right now and it is fear and this is not critically jared. Because i think he's phenomenal and needs to be a part of the future and i don't think anyone franchise thinks otherwise but things go horribly this year you know. Are you thinking. I'm just throwing this out there. Are you thinking. Can we commit x number of dollars to one player defensive tackle when we have so many more holes to fill than we thought right this. I mean seriously so it's another reason. Why maybe the falcons didn't wanna go down that road right now. Outside of the fact. That just wasn't really feasible I just think there's a lotta decisions are gonna spin off. What happens this season. Who's kept who goes gets paid. Who doesn't get paid who we have can on from. I just think it's like starting with a clean chalkboard all over again. And i think this was never a situation where it was going to get fixed or completely rebuilt in one season regardless this was never going to be twenty twenty one. And we're done. This is probably a multi year project to your point where they're going to keep reevaluating some of these guys in figuring out there their long-term fit on the team. And you know even with guys like diaw jones and grady jarrett. If they're looking two years out those guys are gonna be approaching thirty. And and that's the point where you start wondering if that's the guy you're going gonna commit to for long run and this is what we signed up for. I mean fans wanted. Thomas dmitrov in dan quinn gone and they got their wish and i think it was the right decision. I think everyone believes it was right decision but along with that that means the new regime comes in and they re evaluate everything including your star future hall of fame wide receiver. Which is where. Jeff thank you again I mentioned this on twitter. And i'm going to reemphasize you're on the podcast for all the reporting i've been watching. Yours has been the most consistent on these. themes with the falcons. I think it's held up the most consistently over the past three or four months So kudos to that. Because it's been a roller coaster. We've seen some wild reports over the last three months. But i think your experience with this team has has shown over the past three months and is accredited work. You've been doing so on thinking. Yeah on that note tiller listeners where they can find you what you have going on Well since my week won't be interrupted by another flew straight trade. I could spend an hour on that one Yeah you can find everything. I write which i will be falcons minicamp I think tomorrow the next couple of days but yeah just the athletic dot com.

"At the time but you know keep people keep bringing up matt ryan. But he was the one move that they could make it that moment to get under the cap for the league. Your started and i feel like this. The cowboys fan may not understand this. But there's no there's no grace period you have to be under the cap when the nfl year starts. They don't yes. Let you carry over it like in. There have been teams if i think the last one was dallas. Cowboys got penalized. I think the first round draft pick because they went over the cap in a in a non In one of the middle years where the league was under a cpa. They take it seriously. So matt was the easiest and quickest way to get under the cap at at that at that juncture Interestingly you mentioned the negotiations with grady. It almost seems like the worst possible time to try to negotiate an extension is when his agent knows that you're desperate cap space absolutely like that's ever was saying that should be the easy stenciling like if i'm the agent. I'm dragging my feet a making no sweat. Because i know. I've got him right. Where one and now. The julio trade if anything up the possibility for a better negotiating ground with gregg jarrett next year if they want to extend him in help out the twenty twenty two which is not looking great without conceiver. No because you guy in we can circle back to matt ryan on this so right now you. You already had a bad cop situation. Twenty twenty to take what whatever it is fifteen million of a dead money of julio now in twenty twenty two bat ryan's because of the recent restructure cap number twenty twenty two jumps from about twenty five million this year to about forty eight million next year. He's not going to play for. Forty eight million next is not going to happen. So there's only two options one is they restructuring him yet again or to you and i are here one year from today. Talking about was getting a second round draft. Pick for matt ryan enough in the tree. And i'm not really exaggerating because if you look at his post june trade number next year it's not numbers are not equal to julio but it says it's a very similar situation right pay the guy forty eight million we. We can't do that. We can restructure him but we need to get out of this future hall or we can trade him. And i think a lot of these decision a lot of these decisions based on what happens in twenty twenty one This is why i was such a strong proponent of drafting quarterback matt still not sure they made the right decision outfits. Pets Regardless of how good cockpits is. I understand that. Their evaluation of justin fields was not nearly as high as it was trevor lawrence. Or zack wilson. Or or trey lance. Who i i know for a fact they really liked. Trae lands It was clear they did not want to take a guy who they presumed to be by the quarterback but guy Pick in the draft and really like how pits to there's person everybody likes cockpits never seen a guy be declared like an all pro before. He's even plays. I mean it's like people are like when this guy get i feel sorry for him. He will bring this jan or hollering and insert great. But i mean come on let me let me get play right pressure. No pressure so again. I buddy engineer. This comeback. Arthur smith again. It's to come back to their record. This year headed of they. And does arthur smith believe okay. We can trade matt ryan. Let's say eight okay. I think we can trade matt ryan and signed this ryan tannehill level quarterback. Okay as as we proceed ryan tannehill a couple of years ago and and i can get at least eight eight making better if there's nobody. They want draft next year or they can do both so i really think does again. This is it. Cleans up the issue next this year. Doesn't think that the issue admixture Twenty one but not twenty twenty two. I'll get the words out right and But they had to do it they had. They're pushing recent. They had to start doing some of the stuff. Now and i know people are upset. I know people who have blue. Jones jersey are upset. Or he's guy all blob. This is as i said these are. These are businesses wrapped around sports. It's not other way on an and it's just the reality tonight is i wrote at night. I car the forty niners Thought they traded joe montana zapped. I moved to land. But they did as i was hearing. The hawks traded. Dominique wilkins was on the plane. When the braves traded the gohmert the with the murphy flying philadelphia. Oh my god. They traded bill murphy. I grew up in atlanta. But i knew what he met here. And so It's it's just happened to know or interesting. When you mentioned some of those trades because even with montana they had someone waiting in the wings. They had steve young waiting in the wings. And i think what sort of bosom of talk about who and he's going to go down as the one of the greatest players on the falcons maybe at the wide receiver position ever but they drafted calvin ridley in many people consider him a wide receiver. One and i see that sort of as a parallel with that montana. Young situation where you don't necessarily want to let go of this guy. In the ideal scenario he retires with the franchise. But you have someone waiting to take over that spot when when he's gone and it solves multiple problems with the cap and with Being able to elevate calverley immediately to that wide receiver position And then even with del murphy. I remember that That trade massive braves fan. That was devastating to me at the time. And he's a former Mvp award two times with the brakes And this guy you would think. Oh he's going to be a brave for life to steal the phrase from arthur blank and these businesses are they're brutal they don't the debt loyalty only go so far in as much as that. The team is still winning and they have the money to pay these guys so one last thing. I want to run by. Because we've heard this a lot in a i think you've dispelled it multiple times in. Its a narrative that keeps going. Around with the falcons in your one of the few people that i think has has reported on this Differently than many people. There has been this idea. That when the falcons restructured matt that they are now in win now mode they want to win now and that that restructure is a signal that they plan to try to compete immediately for a super bowl and then when they drafted cow pits that win long that narrative their win now mode and of course what came along with that is. Why would you be win now. Mode and then trade away. Julio jones when you can have the best offense in the league What do you say to this. I did the falcons knows..

"Appreciate it. And then i guess i guess producer. Steve here is like which steelers defensive lineman See like the cam heyward of this. Podcast he is the is the cam heyward. I don't know. I don't know all right. Let's not let's not do the steelers and bringer runner employees matchless. They're one of the things i like about you danny and there are many of them That you have more notes normally than you have thin questions that are asked to you. What is the number one thing in your notes right now that you wanna talk about that. I haven't asked about. There's two things. Where is julio jones in the greatest receivers of all time. Because i have been thinking about no seriously. He has the most receiving yards through ten years of every receivers jerry. Rice josh good piece of fivethirtyeight this week that basically said when julio's healthy he's still top five receiver. I'm not saying it's the radio wall street or anything like that. I'm not trying to say. Julio as a person seems a very little in common moss. I i'm not saying it's gonna break receiving record but it does feel important to say that. Just because julio jones has been a falcon and somewhat irrelevant from a team standpoint for a long time this is like an all time. Great being traded at the very tail end of his prime. I don't wanna just jump over that. I agree with that. I also think that when he talked about how irrelevant. they are from a football standpoint. I agree with that but every time something like this happens i just think about the how much of a what if the falcons super bowl was true right. Believable there've been. It's lens lid that you know. There have been people who've speculated that the patriots maybe move on from or try to start a succession plan for brady earlier if that doesn't happen I mean there's the butterfly effect of what happens if the patriots don't blow Twenty five point lead It's just really. It's really kind of incredible. And i feel bad for falcons fans 'cause this is like that scabby ripped off again. It's like you think discards issues been healed kyle pits and then you rip it off again because this is. This is the best player in team history and like that's fricking brutal. When you trade the best player in team history for a second rounder. And i know that the falcons should not be held to the coles. Because it's the same. Compensation mohamed sanu. Obviously they got a good deal from hamas. But that's always how we're going to remember it is who was traded for the same hall. They got from mohamed. Sanu because of money quite frankly that's never an excuse in football fans will never care. Well you know. We need cap space. We traded the best player in franchise history. And you know. Maybe he'll twelve hundred dollars for the titans this year. That's a calamity. Do you think this trade is overshadow much under ninety our job at bethpage black. It was to eighty nine. I will give you that. It was a downhill but it was to eighty nine. I just i feel like that wasn't dominate. The news cycle at the end And now fish trade really just kinda muddies the waters there will take away from the drive. Was that it was two seventy five. The last time we played. And then i said can you do it and then you did. I'm gaining bulk. As the summer goes along is lifting. Is it boxes i. I don't i don't talk about about my competitive advantage. So in one year's time we're doing the one year anniversary of his podcast. What is the take on straight. Julio and aj brown were really fun together and it was an absolute gift. We got to watch that happen. And the falcons probably wished that kyle pits had watched you know maybe maybe the falcons could have been like. Hey cal pits want to just watch him. Julio jones works for your the greatest professional of any receiver like you know we watch his work habits and chill for year. Maybe they should've let that happen. But instead hey we are the winners we got to watch. Aj brown allegiance play together and have a ton of fun. Here's here's here's my take on this. I think that julio poise eleven games he has two games are just awesome when we pull this up here. Sorry steve first of all the first preseason game. i'm sure who they will not play in it. As against the atlanta falcons which. I kind of like he plays at seattle. The falcon the titans. Play at seattle on september nineteenth. Another team. that wanted to. Yeah and i think that that is the game..

"Agent signings the past few years. I know saints fans love bragging. About how loomis you know. The salary cap goes apply to him but they lost a couple of starters. This offseason as well ran. They're gonna they're gonna feel the brunt of it this coming season. I don't think terry wanted to put the pelicans in that situation. And you know. I think the most important thing was rebuilding the salary cap in the coming years because like i said giving julio jones that that kind of extension of sixty six million dollars over three years was a mistake i think ability was a mistake when it happened and now in hindsight. It's an even bigger mistake so you know to get out of that. That's that's the biggest possible win now. Of course you know. I wouldn't have been happy if it was a fourth round or just a fifth rounder that he got but you know in early day to pick a second round without should turn into starter in other falcons also another thing. We haven't talked about after they signed their drug class. They will have her on eight million dollars in salary cap to work with with the rest of the age of market right So you know they could possibly look into getting another pass rusher. They could bolstered the defense just a little bit. So it's not it's not all loss you know it's not just a a one for one in vacuum. Will you're jones for psycho rounder. it's it also has a lot to do with the complexities of the salary cap. Yeah and that's oh you brought up excellent points on especially the you know the contract extension. I know at the time there are a lot of people who said you know wiser player. Who's only you know. You're tuned to his other contract giving an extension on so it wasn't necessarily universally liked at the time. And i think some of us are looking back and saying could they have done something different. And and honestly some of the reporting has suggested that the contentiousness over the negotiations. That contract extension is where some of the animosity has come from with. Julio towards the falcons franchise just in general not even specifically to this regime who obviously had nothing to do with that. But towards the franchise maybe a arthur blank in the in the rest so You know take that for what you will. But i think you bring up some interesting points there evan. To close us out your thoughts on the trade compensation do you feel like they could have gotten more or do you feel like again. This was something where the bigger deal for them was offloading the entire sour. Yeah honestly the only way they would probably going to be able to get a better deal where somebody takes on that contract and gives us like a first round pick Is if this dragged on until like training camp started and a wide receiver one on a different team. Got her which you never wanna see anybody get hurt. But that's probably the most realistic example of like what we could've guide more in Because i mean this scenario we have now. I mean that's probably the best we're going to get And you know you take it with like on on said we've got a bunch of cap that's gonna be freed up and we'll add some players hopefully on defense They really need to add to the receiver core. I think they're pretty solid even without julio jones now But yeah i. I don't see anything you know. The other thing too is. There was that rumored first round pick it could have easily been that the falcons get a first round pick but they have to give like julio in the second or julio leona third team just didn't want to give up and and then also not talking about tap stuff maybe they were taking like half the contract.

"What adjective us. Because this is a big one. We're going to talk about the fact that it has happened. What has been rumored really since march and improbably. The the wheels started turning much sooner than that Julio jones has been traded from the falcons We will get into the details of that trade but before we get into that. Wanna talk about. Who is joining me on this. Podcast first and foremost is my co host. The one and only forever matt online gena kelly gene. How you doing. I could be better to be quite honest. I did not expect to half the try to process all of my emotions about julio jones leaving today i just wanted a nice relaxing stomach and here we are. There's no relaxing falcon span. Not or somebody who works in. Nfl media you can never really count on relaxing weekend at anytime. And so i guess that the strive set home the certainly does Also joining us is one of the writers at the alchoholic non on how you doing. I'm doing pretty well. You know. I've been waiting for this trade for a while. I think we all have. I think it would have been a lot worse if this just came out of nowhere. You know we've had all the reports we've talked. We've talked nauseam about this. And i think i was to the point of art. Let's just get it over with already. Yeah exactly i in some ways. It's like pulling the Pulling the band aid off so all right. Let's get into it. Let me I cover what the actual deal is. Julio will be going to the titans So he will be paired up with. Aj brown. I think you could argue that. That will be one of the best wide receiver one wide. Receiver duos in the entire. Nfl after this trade goes through the falcons will get a twenty twenty two second rounder and a twenty twenty three fourth rounder from the titans The titans will get julio jones of course and a six rounder. Back from falcons in twenty twenty three. The most important thing here is the titans will take on all. Julio jones Salary this year the fifteen point three million. So this will. Net the falcons an additional fifteen million in cap space for this year. I this will allow them to sign their rookie class as well as having some additional cap space you know. The estimates are between seven and eight million to sign the falcons Rookie draft class. So they will carry over seven to eight million This year in if they can carry over all that that will obviously be important because twenty twenty. Two cap wise is not much. Better for the falcons So those are the specifics. We know now he is going to an afc team. We do not play them this year. During the regular season however titans are the first game of the preseason for the falcons so if there's any solace in this it's that julio was almost never in preseason games so we probably will not see him against the falcons. Yeah but almost never on the field on third down south getting getting. Oh yeah here we go with hot. Takes so gino through i. Now we know the details of this trade and honestly it seems like you know the day started with. Hey the is going to happen and within like a minute. We started getting the details. What are your thoughts on this trade. The value of it and you know from the standpoint of a fan who watches his team but maybe even from the standpoint of someone who looks at this you know more analytically. Yeah so i think that..

"Julio Jones. So it's started a pick up last week the conversations around the league and let us spoken to many teams in both e A. F. C and the NFC who have shown interest In the 32 year old receiver. So where we at now? Well, there have been conversations with a team about trading for a potential future first round draft pick for Julio Jones now The sense of getting ash is that this could happen in early June and kind, of course possibly take more time. But the sense of urgency is really starting to pick up over the last 24 hours, so we could see some action. Perhaps a movement of Julio Jones come next week. Sources told Diana that on Thursday, the Falcons have an offer on the table. They future first round draft pick in Atlanta in exchange is asking teams for a future first round draft pick Well, Dan also reported that Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been in touch with Julio Jones having phone calls about this possibility of playing together at some point in 2021. Well, here's the interesting thing. If they're so adamant about a first round pick. Ah, future first rounder. Seattle doesn't really make a whole ton of sense because they don't have a first round pick in 2022. They sent that to the Jets in exchange for safety Jamal Adam's last year in the summertime. So I wonder. Is it a different team she's talking about, or is the offer? Just gonna have to change if if that's really where they want to send him. Well, look, I I know that Russell Wilson isn't happy so that Courtney, I think is some of where their starts because they're trying to make moves to make their franchise quarterback happy. But if I'm not mistaken, what Russell Wilson said earlier in the off season I agree with this is that they just haven't blocked well enough in front of them. I already have. DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, and that's a really good receivers on that team already do. I think Julio will help? Sure, but I don't think they're Julio Jones away from winning the Super Bowl in Seattle. And like you said, I think now what's happening? Courtney is a couple days before June 1st. And there some teams trying to get some information out there the Falcons to try to drive up the price for Julio Jones. They're trying to set up some kind of bidding war. So do I think the Seahawks are the leaders in the proverbial clubhouse for Julio, I'm not so sure about that. Just think Atlanta is trying to do everything they can to get as much as they can, because they know Julio is a couple good years left, and he's definitely not gonna be in Atlanta. He's 32 years old. He is coming off an injury riddled season. He's still one of the top receivers in the game, which I Think with the ask of a future first rounder is a little much, especially at this point of his career. But clearly he's viewed as one of the top pass catchers in the NFL. Which is why you can command something like that now. Well, they should get it. We'll see. But Maura Importantly, here with the post June one designation for the Falcons is the fact that that dead money for those wondering why is June one so important? What you can split up that dead money between this season and next, So wouldn't be this massive charge Uhm against the cap in 2021 when he has cap it's for 23.5 million this year and the next year's 19 point. 263 in 2022 2023. You'll get some financial relief there, but also You have to factor in that base salary. He has $15.3 million in 2021. It's all fully guaranteed. So any team that you're asking for a first round pick from you're all saying? Well, you have to incur this massive salary, so to me, you might get Future first rounder in exchange for that, But you're gonna be taking on so much more that salary in exchange for the it's. It's kind of like which your way in the cost benefit analysis here of a future first rounder, which would you rather be spending the money on and I get if you're Terry Font know the new GM of the Atlanta Falcons. You're trying to build something there that weighing that future draft capital in terms of the currency of it. Might be worth taking on more of Julio Jones salary, but that still is a very hefty price to pay When your team that decided it didn't want to take a quarterback it for it. Want to roll the dice again with Matt Ryan, and it went ended up taking Kyle pits the first Skill position player to be taken in the draft. So you're saying at that point after you had said that you'd feel calls for Julio Jones that you think that you could have a top five offense, theoretically, with Jones, Calvin Ridley Kyle pits hated Hearst. I mean, you'd be throwing Ah lot. At the wall and hoping it sticks And now with Julio Jones very much out of there. You cannot convince me he will be going back to Atlanta after those comments came out for sure. Don't it kind of feels like you take a step back there and is your building towards the future? Still kind of feels like you're back at the drawing board figuring out well, which direction are we actually going? I agree. I don't know what the Falcons air you know. Are they a win now team do they think they can win the Super Bowl this year or or not? Uh, I'm just kind of the belief Courtney that I don't know if any team is really a receiver away from winning the Super Bowl, you know, like I thought about Baltimore for Julio Jones, a team Like that seems to make a lot of sense to me their reports out that the Ravens aren't all that interested again. That could just be posturing. That's a team to me that like they've got all the pieces in place. Except for maybe that big play guy to stretch the field to really make a push and try to win it this year. I just think the Seahawks if you watch that playoff game against the Rams that they lost They are so broken in so many different areas and yes, they have a great franchise quarterback and that immediately makes them a Super Bowl contender. I don't think they're good enough in the trenches. I don't think they're good enough on the two lines of scrimmage to be able to win the most difficult division in football and to be able to advance in the playoffs. Last time I checked Julio Jones that block anybody, and last time I checked, Julio Jones doesn't really tackle anybody. And I think those are the two areas right now. Where if you're the Seahawks? You really have to get better. You were talking about this June 1st thing. I just want to mention here to also Courtney that it's not just Julio Jones. One of the reasons the Aaron Rodgers situation has not gone anywhere yet is because they were never going to trade him before the first of June for the salary cap reasons that you explained So the first domino here that's probably gonna fall after June 1st his Julio Jones, but I think you also now starting this week have to keep your eye on what's gonna happen with the Packers and Aaron Rodgers, right? Yeah, And it's something we will definitely be keeping our eye on here on game that will get back into that subject later in the show. Quick Score update for you in the Eastern Conference round, one serious Brooklyn leading the Boston Celtics won 21 1. Oh to that game was close. In the beginning. Boston jumped out to an early lead, but Brooklyn, as has happened in every other game, this Syriza running away with this eight minutes left in the fourth quarter, But as it pertains to Julio Jones in the future, I think that they're a lot of teams out there..
