"Excuse me. Question for the pot who was on your list for the next. Great NFL coaching Eire's. Vance Joseph seemingly outta Denver wondered who are your top candidates would be to replace him. That's a good question. Here's what you have to know about Denver. John Elway is in charge. He answers to nobody. Except John Elway he is going to want another Vance Joseph type coach, I would guess because who are the coaches like would Mike McCarthy take that job. Even though I think Mike McCarthy would be a good coach for John Elway. John Elway needs. Like, it's pretty clear. John Elway's, not great at hiring coaches. He he chose Vance. Joseph over Kyle Shanahan say that out loud. His his coaching higher last year. I mean Vance Joseph he had the sleep on week seventeen to keep him thought about firing him. Like, John the moment you do that. It's clear it's not gonna. Work think about you had to think year one of this guy was the coach. No shady was going to get fired you to you then. So I I don't know. It's not a great crop for coaches. Like would Matt Campbell the guide Iowa State take the job would a college coach that had a good job leave to go work for John. Elway probably not you know, who are the great coordinators. He does have a history. Jim Bob cooter worked Denver. When Payton was there. Now it hasn't gone. Well, in Detroit, I'm just throwing out of name that John could kind of boss around. That's vance. Joseph just puppet does whatever John Elway wants. So I don't know. I'm a guy that usually has answering. I have no clue John Elway would hire. Because he interviewed Vance Joseph and he interviewed Kyle Shanahan, and he chose Vance Joseph say that outlawed. The reason he hired Gary kubiak that was boy, you know, I was an easy higher. He knew him like Vance Joseph was somewhat of a challenging higher. You kind of went with his young sexy. Name a backfired like, do, you know, it turns out John Elway might not know what he's looking for. I got news for most a lot of people. Don't it's Aren coaches are hard just because John Elway was a great player actually think he's a solid gentleman's jer rookie class issues been exceptional. I don't know if he's got a great feel for coach like is he cool with the coach coming in there and just blasting some of his players or does. Because now the entire rosters. His does. He want you to tell him what he wants to hear. So I I don't know. I honestly I have no clue John Elway was going to be higher would hire. But I do think it would it's easily the moment. He fires. Vance joseph. It's going to be one of the more fascinating hires of the off-season, not quite sure on the Christmas schedule yet. Probably do a podcast on Monday. And then another one on Friday may record it Sunday night after the games. And then I'll do another one on later in the week. So we'll keep them coming. And appreciate everyone listening and see next week. I guess we'll talk to you before Christmas. But we enjoy the games. Have Have we? we?.

"He definitely has the talent because it can run inside. He can run outside. He's really fastened. Catch a football. He he does possess. The ability to be a top five running back problem is probably gonna have a new code probably new quarterback. So does that mean a new scheme? It's just not an ideal situation. Hey, John huge ravens fan. Do you think? John Harbaugh needs to make the playoffs to keep his job. Denier to answer this question last week. I if I think I kinda did. But this sandiego game on you know. The Saturday night game against the chargers kind of fighting for John boss career. He wins that game. They make it to the playoffs. And I said last week. I don't think that would one hundred percent guarantee him to come back. But I do think he'd be in pretty good shape. He made the playoffs in a year where the old the owner kind of gave him the ultimate them. The he broke in this new quarterback you'd probably roll it back at least one more year and see what he could do with a four year with Lamar Jackson as a starting quarterback. Because the one thing you would say and I'm not the biggest Lamar Jackson fan. Anyone knows that listen to this? Is you go? Well, if they kind of added some wrinkles this offense their defense is unreal. Why couldn't they win that division next year? You know, Ben's who knows what Ben's going to do. He retired any moment. But if they make the playoffs the more I thought about it. I think you know, Harbaugh John Harbaugh that is what comeback. Why does everybody doubt the bears? They get a big win after. After win three division wins. Then they win the division. Everybody's saying they still have their doubts and how they're not a real team. I understand they had some bad losses. They did the Miami losses, bad, weather, and but losses, but the losses are the week one loss a loss in the hot Miami. And the loss without Khalil Mack intra Bisky, I could see them making an impact in the playoffs. But you see them winning any playoff games. Well, let's assume the saints get the one seat at the saints beat the Steelers, they get the one-seat. Let's give the Rams the benefit of the doubt and say the Rams win these last two games. They do play Arizona in San Francisco. They get the two seat say the bears get the three seat. Then you got Dallas the four seed. Let's give Seattle the five seed, and let's give Minnesota. The sixty Minnesota is a difficult succeed. And I do think they would have the capability of beating the bears, but just say this out loud. Could Kirk cousins go on the road and win a game against Chicago against that defense? I my reaction is no. But that team if they played well, they ran the ball in the Minnesota. Vikings defense played well they could win that game. I think you know, depending on the matchups if Brady's in the first round I would imagine that would be the Saturday night game. But Minnesota Chicago if that is a first round playoff game that is an incredible first round playoff game. I think the bears would be favored if I guess. You know, maybe three and a half points. It's not like going to be six seven points in it might be a little maybe four points max. But you know, they play other last week of the season more likely the bears. You You know? know, we it's hard for me to say right now, they might not have anything on the line that game. But you could sign me up for that game. I would give the bears about a seventy five eighty percent chance of beating Minnesota in week one. Or I mean in division round of the playoffs the wild card round the playoffs..

"They beat their division rivals and unofficially win the division that night. Like those were just three incredible stretch games for the Dallas Cowboys Jason Garrett kind of got humming again. And I still think they're high end like most people. I mean, Dax got us flaws. But when he just managing the game. When zeke's Haman when their defense and the pass Russia's flying in a Maris making plays team is damn good. Hey, John big fan me to do. You think Joe mixing can develop into a top five running back next season. I haven't on fantasy team for two seasons. And he's been awesome. I do think that top five running back. Zeke's and the peak of his powers Christian McCaffrey a baller Todd Gurley. Still going levian will be back. I'm probably leaving out. Someone Alvin Kamara still bad ass. I guess Kareem hunts out of the league right now. Yeah. I definitely think he has the talent loved amid Oklahoma. He actually this year when they were what the Bengals start like five and one or six two or whenever they whenever they started pretty well that they were he was a stud, and I had a buddy text me probably like week five or week six bro buddy in the league. Like, you got Pika Joe mixing he is a baller, and I just remember type in his name in a Twitter, and they had his highlights from that game. It was like week three. And it was just like oh my God. This guy is legit. The his problems going to be is who's as quarterback. You know, if it's Andy Dalton again are they going to roll back? Is there any threat of passing? I would say this might sound a little crazy. Why don't the Bengals just hit reset trade? AJ green? Could they get a first round pick form? I got I got the answer for you. Yes. They could I hell I might trade. A first round pick form if I was general manager. Defense is they have a new coach, you know..

"But I as I defended and said earlier on the podcast. This was a perfect storm. He drafted a starting left tackle. And he drafted a starting running back and one towards achilles. And the other just got banged up. The Josh Gordon move showed. He was a little desperate and gronk got old overnight. Gronk was good last year in right now he's a shell themself. Feels like it's over. So that happens in football. That's why Bella check would probably tell you. And he did tell us. He tried to trade gronk last year tried to get rid of them. And that's when gronk says all retire. I'm not playing for the lions now with the lions that have been a first round pick. What a Bella check would have three first round picks gronk used his leverage, and rightfully so. But belch wanted to move on. And he kinda got stock and gronk Yunos one of the top five famous players in the league non quarterback has Robert Kraft year. Any is gronk he still a good player. But he's nowhere near what he wants was kind of killing them. They are an offense that kind of went as gronk went, obviously, they go as Brady goes. But when gronk was humming. They were unstoppable. Because that would mean usually gronk was humming. Etel mental salad at not the same with his ACL injury. They don't really have an outside receiver. I mean two years ago when they had Brandin cooks, and he was playing well gronk was healthy. And was I mean, they were good. I guess Ataman got hurt and training camp. Actually. So in theory that offense should have been good. Right. Dion Lewis, James white Eshelman HOGAN gronk Brandin cooks like on paper that wasn't lead offense that was an incredibly setup team. I hope Jimmy Garoppolo was a backup. So it's it's low hanging fruit right now to pick on ballot. Check this. This happens. Just having an off year. I think they'll be fine. I love Sony Michelle coming out of college. I think he's going to be a good player. He just had a rough rookie year. Hey, John big fan of podcast. The Cowboys have to all pros out in the third plane with a knee brace on his elbow Tyron Smith, elbow is massive. You know, what's crazy really quick Tyron Smith? He was he'd your classic like Julio Jones of left tackles five star recruit goes to college for three years top ten pick borderline hall of Famer. Now, he's battled some injuries or he one hundred percent would have been a hall of Famer. But it's just Tyron Smith was like a blue Chipper at like twelve years old. You know, I mean a legit. I think he was a five star recruit elegance sophomore high school. So just absolute monster. Okay. Is there merit to accepting the four seat and sitting everyone the last few games just like swallowing the nine and seven record or whatever it is to have their aligns healthiest possible to good question. The only problem is right now is the eagles are kind of feisty. Now. I think they both play at one o'clock. I think one thousand percent if I think if Washington loses weekend the Dallas Cowboys will Clinton division. I think you play everyone this week try to get nine and six, and then if you have the four seed, and it set you one million percent just rest, everyone you rest everyone and you get ready for the playoff game. 'cause we've seen if the Cowboys arrested if they come into a game focused and ready to roll I've been saying this for weeks, I didn't really overreact that much the colts game like. The Cowboys won a bunch of game straight. They just come off too. Crazy emotional games. Right. Really three emotional games. The Thursday night game on Thursday day game on thanksgiving. When Amari went nuts, and they kinda got a rolling then seven days later, they beat the saints when they were heavy underdogs, then ten days later..

"A Seattle Seahawk fan you're going to the game. You don't care about getting wasted. I mean, you don't have to work the next day moral, you might give the next two days off. Well, clearly because you're getting Christmas off. You probably just take Monday off to you're getting lit. That place is going to be bananas at the atmosphere for the charger game is going to suck on Saturday. It's like thirty thousand perks person stadium. They don't have really any fans the atmosphere. Sunday night in Seattle is going to be the complete opposite. Everyone will just be plastered. I was talking to someone in the NFL. They think and I kind of agree that they pipe noise. Amanpour is gonna be so loud United meal think I think it's going to be very very difficult. If Patrick Mahomes wins that game. I don't care if he wins at three to nothing, which we know they won't win it three to nothing. Their defense isn't good enough. I'd give I'd give them the MVP in the locker room. If you go up to Seattle and win that game that would be an incredible achievement. But I can't wait. And I think the NFL should just should be extremely happy right now. Because the league is humming. A lot of the controversy in the stuff the fluffs out. And we just week after week is big time game after big time game with the best players. I can't wait for Saturday night. And then I surely can't wait for Sunday. Let's let's jump to the college the college football recruiting actually, and let me state this. I've been on record from day one. I thought chip Kelly and UCLA was a bad fit. I I I don't think chip Kelly is is any longer elite, obviously at the pro level. But even at the college level, I thought it was crazy that the two heavy hitters for the UCLA program. Casey Wasserman who's kind of their billionaire donor in Troy Aikman, you know, their most famous football alum. I mean did everything moved mountains to try to line him up and get chip Kelly to run their program. I thought God I thought it was crazy in listen is chip a smart guy. I've always argued super smart guys are not stubborn. They're open minded, and the one thing with chip is he's never really changed through the failures of from Philly to the forty Niners to what he did this year with UCLA. But I said here's the thing about UCLA. Unlike an Oregon that already had a program that was running at a high level and was easily recruiting a lot of high level players when he took over it's easier to get into school at Oregon one in two they cheat. Guess what chip got in trouble at UCLA? They gave Willie Lyles a Brown bag full of cash to land them players any through his recruiting guy. Under the bus for it. Cheap has no problem with cheating and don't get me wrong. Neither do I I G to if I was a college coach, I got no issue with it. It's a lot more difficult at UCLA at UCLA. You gotta do a couple of things one is you gotta hustle a little bit as a recruiter, you know, because you're not even the sexiest team in your own town, and it's just difficult to sell people on your program because historically, you're not that great of football program. But I will give Jim more credit on this. And if you know me, I'm not a big, Jim Mora guy. He did really work at recruiting. There was a famous story. Kenny clark. Who's now on the Green Bay Packers? His dad, I don't know if he's still in prison, but when he was coming out of high school his senior year or while he was in high school stat was imprisoned. So they sent Jim Mora. And I think the coordinator went and they didn't have to do this. But they really want him to come school. They went to prison to meet with the dad just to get his blessing. They wanted him to come to the program in say one thing for Jim..

"And they don't they don't even have to win this Kansas City game. They have Aaron awake seventeen they're gonna be a playoff team. So I was texting with someone in their media in the northwest will say Curtis Crabtree will saying that he. Thinks that it's like statistically above ninety five percent chance. They're not losing out. They do not have to win this game. Though. I do think they might win. Like this that game to me is more interesting than ravens chargers though. Obviously in the sequence with that game on Saturday night. It'll be a lot more juice for the chiefs. If San Diego, I call him San Diego, and everyone's like, I can't believe Stephen a cold in the San Diego Chargers. Like, the one thing. I did not give Stephen grief about on Twitter, or even in my mind. They're always going to be the San Diego Chargers to me. They don't deserve to be called the Los Angeles chargers. So I called the San Diego Chargers. I think Baltimore is a weird team. And I know some players on their defense was saying like it's harder to game plan for Lamar than than Patrick Mahomes. I'm calling Bs on that. But the I forget who it was said wells because he can throw it. And I don't think throw it that. Well, but you can't dispute he can really run it. The one thing about the ravens is their defense is excellent. I think right now is the number one scoring defense in the NFL the charges are clearly humming. Melvin Gordon supposed to come back. The latest on Keenan Al and they've proven then get by even if Keenan Allen play if he plays this game. And he's not one hundred percent, which he won't be Mike Williams ball, and they'll be fine. They can make do Inc. Tonio gays just functions. I think the chargers win that game. And then I think it's crazy. I have I'm I'm rooting for the chiefs. I would love to see both these teams going to week seventeen with both juice on the game. But I don't know. I just know having watched Seattle so closely over this run how hard it is to go up there and win and I- Collins been pretty hard on Mahomes this week because I I've watched basically ever snap. He's had this season. I mean, he's had a couple down moments before the most part, I think he's been brilliant. I mean, their defense is a tros absolutely terrible that they might have the worst defensive backs in the NFL. They can't cover anyone. Their defensive coordinator. Bob sudden, I know he was good. I know Andy likes him. But God damn I mean, he feels just out of it a little bit. I would imagine no inside information on this. He retires and he's not really a fire guy. But I'd be shocked if he's back next year feels like they'll go get some new blood or just someone new, but it a hard place to win. I mean, Mahomes, he's experienced some incredibly loud games this year, right at home just place rocks. But they don't scream when you're on the field. He is never ever going to have heard anything quite like what he here Sunday night at place is going to be loud. People the holiday weekend technically because Christmas Eve on Monday and then Christmas is on Tuesday. So if you're.

"Chief has double digit sacks kind of like Buckner in their third year. They're going to be fine. They're gonna make a bunch now. It could cost them if they're only four time pro bowlers, and we are arguing for the hall of fame for these guys. But that's a bigger picture. It does have repercussions when you screw this up. But you can't allow everyone on the team. You don't have an unlimited amount of roster spots that I would say glass half full side of me would say just look at you know, the NFL's loaded with talent at every position. You know, I say the same thing about the NBA like if you're a point guard right now in the west it's hard to make the all star team deer and FOX for the Sacramento Kings is having an unreal season. Here's the problem. He's not being out Steph curry, he's not beat now. James harden? He's not beaten out a lot of these guys. The west has a lot of good point guards like hall of fame. All-time great point guards just sucks, but just the nature of the beast divorce Buckner one you'll be a Pro Bowl or probably next year. Maybe, but if if you can't beat out Fletcher Cox that is no indictment that you're not a good player. And I thought overall for the most part of the Pro Bowl gotta right? I think it's just been a incredible NFL season. Just from a drama standpoint. I think it's been a a pretty controversy Freeh NFL season. I mean, the Kareem hunt thing had let's call what it is. You know in this day and age felt like about forty eight hours of staying power. That's a long time like twenty four hours is your typical story in this day and age, but it hasn't been so negative. You know, the last couple of years with Trump and capper Nic like this season for the most part has just felt about football has felt about is this coach doing a good job this player doing a good job. What's up with Aaron Rodgers football stuff? And I think I speak for everyone. Thank god. I was tired of the other crap. It becomes you know, it can just beat you down. You know? I don't mind. Don't get me wrong. I like, I've thoroughly enjoyed the Jon Gruden experience. It's been fascinating. Like, I don't mind rumors in different things. What's going on in? Let's call what it is for the most part. Most of the rumors you read as fans are things, you know, most of it's true in coaches teams love to tell you like don't believe what you read like a lot of stuff gets out for a reason, you know, the stuff that gets out we usually know what's going on. And it's a great part about two thousand eighteen is as a fan, and as someone that watch is the same deal with anything. I mean, we've never had more information. I mean, our president tweets like fifty times a day. Like, we know everything that's going on even some the times when it's not true. You gotta figure out what's true. And what's not true and definitely with the NFL and it's been a very enjoyable season. The big the Thursday night the Sunday night, the Monday night games for the. Most part this year have just been fantastic in this weekend with a Saturday night game. Chargers ravens. And then the Sunday night game chiefs at Seattle first time, I think Seattle has been an underdog at home in ever since the Russell Wilson's rookie year. I mean ever since they kind of got that thing rolling. They never an underdog at home. So that's a pretty big deal. And if I was picking inveigle to me, it feels more like a coin flip game. I know it's easy to think that the aren't playing that well because they laid a dud at Levi stadium while a couple of things cow Shanahan approaches these games like the Super Bowl, Nick Mullins for whatever reason plays well against Seattle and Seattle had won four straight games..

"It goes on their Wikipedia page, and when we start nitpicking all these guys when it comes to the hall of fame because a lot of guys that go to a lot of pro bowls talked about, you know, when air a-rod no brainer. So that's he doesn't necessarily make Margaret on this one. But on guys like Darius Leonard that missed it. The star rookie middle linebacker for the colts if his career ends, and he only has four pro bowls, and he got screwed out. A couple more that could be a big difference of being a four time. All pro a six time pro bowler. That's how they discuss it in the hall of fame in the when their voting at the process during the Super Bowl like it is a big deal. And I also think that not every position no one really ever argues over offense of Lyman because there's no stats the new position that sexy to argue about is D tackles because forever defensive ends were kind of easy. You just knew who the best passwords are like everyone knew this year Khalil Mack, right? Elite pass rusher. JJ watt a pass rush clowney. I mean, it was just no brainers, but detached this year had a bunch of sacks. So there were a bunch of guys when the voting went down right week. What comes out with still a couple of weeks? I guess we fifteen when the results come out that you go force Buckner. And I got this a lot in my back. Yard divorce Buckner who's been awesome. This year. Been a really good player. Did not make the Pro Bowl. And it's like if you say, yeah, I think that the guys made it above him should have gone in. He shouldn't have made it and everyone's like GS twelve sacks. Like, here's the all the time with hall of fame voting, especially in football. You saw the arguments with baseball hall of fame that recently came out Harold Baines getting because I say that you're not a hall of Famer doesn't mean you're not a good player because I say, you know, what divorce butter I would've taken Aaron Donald Akeem Hicks and Fletcher Cox over you, Aaron Donald no-brainer Fletcher Cox best player by a wide margin on the eagles who are currently seven seven are the defending champs, and he's probably a hall of fame defensive tackle akiem Hicks, like a three four defensive tackle does not parallel a four three defensive tackle. When you are four three defensive tackle. Especially. In the scheme that divorce Bucknor's in you get to kinda roam free. You get to just run through one gap. And just 'cause having do you know what a came Hicks s to do. He has to take on blocks over and over and over so roquan Smith eats and Khalil Mack eats. But do you know what Akeem Hicks is an absolute stone, cold bad ass. And do you know what I think I've tried to tell Niner fans all week what a Keam Hicks was this season that you can't quantify. The we argued forever around these parts. What Justin Smith was your can't put his value in the sack column because every year you get three or four five sacks. But if you watched Justin Smith play every year he'd be like the cowboy that is one bad ass. He you do not want to play the cowboy in a big game. And it was true. Number ninety four for the forty Niners was a certified bad ass. Every coach in the league every player in the league would tell you what every coach and every player in the league that has come across. Chicago would tell you this. Here. I want no part of ninety six you know, why because he's an elite player his stat sheet cannot quantify what he brings the table. What he brings a table as guy six five six six three hundred twenty pounds of immovable objects, and as people in Chicago, we'll tell you when he's pissed off. He's unblock -able and who's coaching them Vic Fangio who coached Justice myth Vic Fangio, so you can't quantify what he's bringing the table. But overall for the most part I thought this year when you look at both rosters you see a group of players most of the elite players in this league are playing at an elite level. And that's usually when you get an elite Pro Bowl team and beside a couple snubs. There's always going to be Chris Jones for the cancer..

"And this is by far just the eye test. Statistically, actually, they're not terrible. But you can watch them like they're not the same mainly because gronk is a shell of himself. Brady's bend somewhat. I wouldn't say human because I still think he's been pretty good. But I I really do think that it speaks to like when you get to Bella checks level. You have to be. I mean, just a late every year like losing. The AFC championship as they did wasn't now almost three seasons ago to the Denver Broncos is beyond devastating a lot of teams the majority of the NFL these all these teams are worth several billion dollars. I mean, they wouldn't say it. Maybe they they would celebrate making to the championship game. We've all seen the gifts a million times because we watch it live bell check refuses to even touch the AFC championship trophy. It means nothing to him. I mean, it's like a routine so everyone selling them down the river. They'll be fine. Yeah. They might lose in the first round of the playoffs. Big whoop. I mean, they've only kicked the living crap out of the NFL for the last six seven years. They're having a down year people also act like Belgium brought this upon himself. Akitas had some things that didn't go his way. He had two first round picks this year. He drafted. A starting left tackle who ruptures his achilles in training camp. So think how good their offense of line would bet if he was their starting left tackle and Trump Brown's would've stayed at right tackle. And then he drafted which is not typical Bella check a running back in the first round. So you'd go down Belgium's driving a running back in the first round. This guy's got to be pretty good. And I agreed with them. I mean anyone that watched Georgia last year win got that number one Sony Michaud bowler. He hasn't been very good. He struggled to stay healthy. He has been nowhere near what you'd expect out of a first round pick his teammate. I mean, they would die to have Nick job. And again, I think Sony big picture will be okay. But it's working here is not been good. Just that simple. When you draft a guy in the first round, you expect to be dynamic if Sony Michelle let's just hypothetical had been the equivalent of like what Alvin Kamara or Kareem hunt was last year patriots probably be a two win team or a two loss team right now, we might. Oh god. They got eleven hundred yard rusher. They look awesome. The pressures not on Brady. So a couple things just you know, eventually sometimes you just draft a couple of get you have to first round picks. One guy gets hurt. One guy turns out to not to be that good. Sometimes she just goes against you. And that's what happened this year to the patriots. He had a down year. Michael Jackson made a bad album. It happens. Okay. Before we get into some of my thoughts on the Pro Bowl. Are you one of those people that thinks it's okay to drive stoned was the worst thing that can happen. You can end up driving below the speed limit. It's no big deal. Right wrong. The truth is your reaction time slows way down when you're high. You not only put yourself in danger. But everyone around you talk about a buzzkill stop kidding yourself. It's not okay to drive high. If you've been using marijuana or vapes or whatever in any form do not get behind the wheel. If you feel different you drive different drive high. Get a DUI brought to you by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Okay. Let's let's talk about the Pro Bowl. I'm not gonna spend much time because the stories guess a little now when it come out like Tuesday or Wednesday. My my main thought is this listen to the initial voting on the Pro Bowl like the initial roster to me, man. Matters. It still has in carries weight. I also think it has repercussions when you screw it up. I think it's thirty percent fans thirty percent players and thirty percent, by coaches GM's. I might have screwed that up. But it's something that's the breakdown actually that wouldn't even up to one hundred..

"I think they've been to eight straight AFC championships. Feels like they've been to Eric SU bull the last five years. But this is not a great year for the patriots. You know, it's nine and five to their standards got a living in the bay area of their standards. It feels like they have two wins. But is it really that crazy like Warren Buffett has a bad year? Like Michael Jackson made a bad album. You know, like they can't be perfect every year. Isn't that nuts for them just to finish eleven and five one? In year in losing the first round of the playoffs. Like, isn't that crazy honestly like ever every product Apple's ever produced feels like lately, they're sweet, but they had some debts. You know? I just I think the overreaction of like, it's the demise of ballot check. Now. I doubt it because I have a couple of facts on hand. He's a smartest guy in the league. He is consistently one the most and the one thing he consistently will be able to lean on even moving forward is division stinks. So he can have he's going to be in the playoffs. Every year up. Updating the last guy in a million years. I'd wanna play on a Sunday of a playoff week or playoffs. Also play on Saturday. It'd be Bill bell, Jack. And even a forty one year old Tom Brady, it's not like. Oh, yeah. You gotta down patriots team. Yeah. That is still not the team. I want to play. I'll take my chances with Mike Tomlin. I'll take. Chance of Bill O'Brien. I'll take my chances with Anthony. Linen, Philip rivers. I don't care if I get a home game. I'm not sleeping well against the hoodie and Tom Brady, I don't give shit. If if they're throwing me and you now again, Josh, Gordon, I think it speaks more to the desperation of this team. They gave a fifth round pick for guy that who knows if he was gonna make it through like I said two weeks, let alone he made it as far as he did. And he shows some flash is like damn this could be pretty special. But we knew it was it was a finite deal. I'm actually shocked at lasted as long as it did. But you know, Belgian knew what he was doing. And again, not Greg Maddux wasn't throwing nine inning shutout every game every not as often with him. But maybe once every two months he got shield you don't Belgian had a bad year. I don't know. He's just had six straight. Great years. You know? Affiliate for Bella check. It feels like the last five years was losing in the Super Bowl. Like last year devastating year. He lost in the Super Bowl where I'm pretty sure he had the lead like five minutes to go. You know? So again, I think there's overreaction. It's it's kind of crazy and it speaks really more to greatness, the true greatness of the patriots of Bella check. And of this dynasty's. We're like, oh my God. They are done. They're gonna finish eleven and five they finished with the bills that jet. There are fourteen point favorite this week. I always I always thought would Jim Harbaugh when people like Jim Harbaugh his final year in San Francisco failure. And it's always, you know, in my mind spoke into the high standards in which follows Jim Harbaugh like Jim Harbaugh's not allowed to have down. Down here. People act like his last year in San Francisco was you know, Hugh Jackson level one winning. He was eight in eight and they were seven and four like they stumbled down the stretch they were eight and eight but again like with Jim Harbaugh who standards, and what follows him aren't any worse close to Bella check, people are just floored when shit doesn't go perfectly. And you don't win it to highlight with bell. Check. It's like if you don't win the Super Bowl red flag. I mean, I again in my backyard. I have the four win forty Niners and the three win raiders. Do you know what? Either one of those owners Mark Davis. Daddy was paying a hundred million dollars to get groomed to get him to nine and five to get him to a playoff berth. Jen York would sell his soul to make the playoffs not with Jim Harbaugh. And so many I mean half the league would die for the patriots worst year..

Number two. Yeah. Who else would you put in the top take member? Number three. Have you seen the listers? I only saw like the part where a friend of mine who's on the list is there in like the forties late forties. And then there's John skipper is. And they're also he's the former head of ESPN, right? He's got that new operations colleague boxing days in. I think the phone is it does own. Yeah. It's like to be an acronym for the design, which is we are does does on D as the N. Yeah.

He's Natsios an executive producer for Fox Sports. Yeah. So obviously powerful number five is rob Manfred number six is David Levy or Levy, he's the president of Turner and Turner sports going on Jimmy Petar, not up. There should be a top five case you wash them in number seven. Yeah. His his power, by the way growing. He played a huge role in the Olympics coming to Los Angeles twenty twenty eight I tell you that so Casey's right up. There got chip Kelly UCLA too. Yeah. Yeah. He did get your. It is the reason.

Where is Jimmy Petar in the thirties? And I read the part where you number twenty two is twenty two. Yeah, he's too. And it said something like always only low because he just got this job. And he's still flexing his muscles. I'm like, he's the head of ESPN. He should be like in the top five. Yeah. He absolutely sorry. Sorry. You're listening flood and some of the other names who else here a lot of agents are on this list. I actually think agents are way more power crunchy number thirty should be much higher. Yes. Should be much higher. Jerry Jones should be top ten. I think Jerry Jones said getting he deserves the lion share credit for getting the two NFL teams to LA and the raiders Vegas. That's those those Jerry Jones operations. Okay. We got a piece of breaking lines. This is the sound or place. Who Rams have waived Phero Cooper? Whoa. Who was an all pro last year as a kick returner? They have wave Ferro Cooper. Now. Let me tell you drop a ball. I complained about Farrow Cooper yesterday. They put him in bad field position multiple times Sunday night because instead of taking the touchback he tried to run the ball out of the end zone. Winds up at the five or the ten or the fifteen when you could have been on the twenty five so Phero Cooper waved by the Rams. That's a pretty stunning move. By the way, you go back. And you think of you know, I still I don't want to. Pile on the guy. But he also was the big reason why the Rams didn't win their playoff game last year. Those two big who's who fumbled? This passenger Joan nets. And so it's not fair. Yeah. I know but pharaoh Cooper again, put them in bad position. Because he was not able to take just take out. Look trying to make the hero play. That's what Joe Joe naturalist trying to do trying to make the hero plan. That's what Todd Gurley and Gerald Everett. We're trying to do on that last drive. Can't let me get a few extra yards. Let me get to the goal line when they should have just gotten out of bounds. That's what Jared Goff. That's mistake. He made when John Sullivan stepped on his foot instead of just going down. Which is what quarterbacks are taught to do something. Like that happens. Just go ahead and hit the dirt. He tried to wiggle out of it and make a throw and that resulted in that weird interception, which basically which did set up an eagles. Touchdown. So everybody was. Trying to make the hero play. But I'm I am..

"Met him. And that was really frustrating. Never really talked to him other than one time. Our play obviously that the agent did a great job getting exactly what he wanted financially, obviously. And that's what's been a mystery is under contract, and he was under contract. He never showed up. Never showed up for training camp. That was obviously the season. Don't forget that we have to get ready to play. I want players that want to be here. Help us put this thing back in high gear and we're gonna start this season. With a group of fifty three men that are willing to pay that price and the raiders wound up dealing to Chicago. Instead of the Rams the Rams thinking, according to our Adam Schefter was to go all in this season because of financial constraints trade Khalil Mack after the season in recoup what they had dealt four. Sportscenter allnight ESPN radio and now with the Rams victory over the raiders in the second half, the Monday night doubleheader week one we can close the books on dad. How about what we saw from week? One Monday night football analyst booger McFarland. Wow. Biggest. Probably be the buccaneers because nobody gave them any shot whatsoever. The ground in the wall. Based on what happened kind of losing the Minnesota. Flu pay up a fluke play. So now, everyone says, okay. How soon do we forget that defense in New Orleans wasn't very good two years ago? And that Saint defense showed up again yesterday in. Why you put up forty seven point. I think that was the biggest shocker in. I know everyone is saying when James gets back. Hey, you got a quarterback this storm for four hundred yards couldn't afford down. How do you take him out of the lineup? So to me that's a situation. Watch not only the buccaneers winning going on the road to win. Oh. Favorites. But also take a look at the quarterback position. And see where it goes. A couple of years. Were you especially don't take them out to put in a knucklehead because James I'm trying to listen to the bottom line is I'm rooting for Jameis Winston, but more Portland roof him to get his life together not making stupid mistakes that he's made. No question about that. But let me ask you this. Who's your biggest disappointment of the weekend? The same game New Orleans because I consider drew Brees. There's no doubt. He's a he's a first ballot hall of fame. There's no doubt that have every welcome. Known to man, all pensively, Sean Payton is one of the best play callers elite. So with all the hype around your team home opener everyone. If they you know last year, you should have been in the NFC title game loss. The scoop. Loop and you come out week one at home. It was a shot at route reason the sideline or he looked at. He didn't know what happened. We practice all off season for the last nine months. And this is what we do to me. That was a shock. Not only could fans, but I gotta think that was a shocker Sean Payton drew Brees losing backup quarterback at home. Do things with my biggest disappoint. Saints. The biggest disappointment there the bears blowing the lead in the Sunday night game. And then the jets just rolling over the lions in the first half of the Monday night doubleheader Rams pulling away for the win over the raiders game. Number two of the Monday night slate rounding out week number one. Sportscenter allnight, ESPN radio and the ESPN app. College football. We saw Alabama. Go on to beat Georgia by a field goal this weekend. Coach Nick Sabin knows. It's gotta get better the real seasons really starting. Now. I think that SEC play coming up. We've had some gifts given to us in the first couple of games. And I don't think that's going to happen. And I think the players have to know the importance of stepping up a notch in terms of love will preparation, and what we need to do to continue to improve and to be able to play well against a very good team on the road like they did against Georgia in the national championship. And now the quarterback situation continues to be up in the air for Alabama. And will it be an absolute red shirt season for someone like Jalen hurts? I fully expect to to get a lion share the load especially early on in the game. Because if you look at how all miss gave up points and yards and touchdowns against southern Illinois. It could be a throw it on Matt and tool was on. Money and the most impressed. I've been with him is the way he finds his receivers underneath hits them in stride and allows them to keep their forward momentum. If all this doesn't improve in the secondary from tackling standpoint, they could be in for a long day. Now Jalen might have a role, but I would fully expect to see to at the beginning. And at the end of the game, especially if it's close and what's scary about two in Alabama. They seem to score so quickly when to is out there sometimes two three passes gone touchdown six different coaching hires in the SEC this off season better the Pac twelve three big-name hires than south Edwards at Arizona state there L after the upset against Michigan state. Meanwhile, chip Kelly UCLA, Kevin sunlit, Arizona. They're often. Those orienteer- starts not good beginning to the seeds. But ended McElroy is it no one likes Arizona states higher. Herm edwards. You were on the call this week, and how much of a threat is that sun devil team in the pack twelve south. They have talent. When you put on the tape, and you see their attention to detail this year as compared to where they were at times over the last few. It's night and day and Herm Edwards. I went to the I questioned it. You hear that name? You hear that? You think how did they come up with that? And then the other two guys you discuss someone and Kelly universally praised. But if you see how hard he's coaching and how invigorated he is. And how invested he is to to the program, and the culture, then you shouldn't be surprised that they are to no end with the talent. They have to kill Harry is the best wide receiver in college football. A couple of freshmen and the deep inside that replaying above their head. They have a veteran quarterback in many Wilkins. This team has the makings of being a bit of a dark horse in the Pac twelve south. When everyone seems to have huge question marks the fact that Arizona state, and Colorado or two, and and you see Arizona who was a trendy pick and USC at Owen two and one and one respectively. It's anybody's division that might as well be on a states. Arizona state opening the season to go and has the marquee went on a resume after the victory over Michigan state on Saturday.

We've got faces in new places to Kelly at UCLA JIMBO Fisher and talk station in some old reliable at the top of the rankings. Third year in a row, Alabama, Clemson, go one, two in the coaches poll. I am kagins sitting in again for Oni reality. Is it okay, we have Goliath and Goliath going one to ten. Am I the only one who's sick of this Alabama Clemson for four straight year. It's unbelievable is not good for college football and it. It's almost like look at their schedules. Those troops will be back in the they could play in the playoffs for the fourth straight year, there's four playoff spots. They're going to get two of them and tell you right now. That's what's going to happen the way the schedule way the teams are, and that's not good for the football. We need what Wisconsin we need to TCU. We need to FAU when he linked Gifford back and there were needed somebody anybody in there to change the narrative. I just don't think in a sport where parody and every week is supposed to be like a playoff week. Every week seems like the same old story when Sal, bam, and Clemson, I'm tired of it. Same old Woody. Well, first of all, we don't want laid kiffin anywhere near the national championship. Yes, we do. Yes, we do. And yes, Bill. You're absolutely right. You don't. I got so tired of seeing UCLA USC be relevant in college football. So I wanted to get over that. What's wrong with it. If these are the best teams in the country, that's what we want to see. I mean, do you really want to see west to KOTA state in the final four? No, I want to see the Alabama's Oklahoma's the pin states the Washington's. I think these teams that if established their their programs that are tough door, high quality, they ever deserved gripe to be at the top. So I'm all all about it that as you pointed out every week, we get to see all play Washington. We get to see Notre Dame playing at home against the top kid type team. I love those games. Same enthusiasm over to lives here. I'm not worried about this Goliath thing. Just like Bill wasn't worried about Lakers Celtics, all of us. Okay code is, but I feel you, I feel you would he look? There are a lot of teams that are coming in this year's a lot of diversity below those. Those top two teams, Miami, what are they going to do this year? Michigan state a team that does bring him back nineteen starters from the season ago. So there's always going to be somebody in the mix and some star player or some star quarterback would really self during the season and, oh, yeah, go you in you, which is going to the night with them Perdue. So I, I like this somebody to try and knock the top dog off the throne, your Goliath. Now, Pablo there, you're going to defend them. I am a Goliath that made his bones as David. I believe I hold the worst like lowest point scored records on this show is because I love Cinderella so much. So yes, I do want a cigarette at some point in that playoff field, but let's not forget that we had Alabama and Georgia, both in the same conference, Clemson in the national title game last year and everybody theoretically could have made complaints. Men. This seems like a terrible outcome. The game was one of the best games we've ever seen if Clemson and Alabama as they did the year before that the liver deliver the product. We all watch all of this will seem so so quaint, when we look back they'll what team are you focusing on to deliver that product? I'll do Baird. Nana's will surprise you the Pac twelve conference focusing on it. To stay Kelly UCLA JT Daniels new quarterback at USC. Washington is going to be in the mix packed wells, and it'd be exciting, innovative, energetic. What I think Colorado is a team. You have to. And also I just want to say this. I think you focus on the coaches who played or coached under Nick Sabin and see which one of them this year's going to be in the national championship game. Tin staff and every year.

Making their moves and, the dodgers gave up five prospects for Manny Machado and it has been since I moved here three years ago there's been like. Chip Kelly UCLA never spends money on coaches they're like okay let's get chip Kelly. And by the. Way of clay Hilton doesn't win against, Texas? Or. Stanford they're going to be looking for the next star. Coach it does feel like Elliott star town I get that I totally, get it but. It does feel. Like like the Rams moving in and LeBron moving in those kind. Of a common arms race isn't there I think what you're what you've come to grips. With is this is Los Angeles.

Decade, ago the dodgers always do this last year, is Darvish, before as Manny Ramirez you pick it that's the Lakers this is par for the. Course, Kevin love resigns with Cleveland today but the worst worst. Kept secret in the world. Was Kevin love a long time ago Minnesota wanted to be a Laker so this is kind of this is a cycle that we've seen i don't think the rams have anything to do with it i actually think what's interesting about the rams is all these one year deals and yes they're trying to play to the idea of big market l. a. that was their whole plan when they got here i think the chargers plan is smarter i think the chargers plan has a longer lifespan and is more likely to work then the tinderbox it is the rams locker room so i love ya i know you love los angeles and and the rooms that you're in at night people are like man there's a lot of big name people come to l._a. but this is kind of what l._a. is manny machado was rumored to be a dodger for the entire season and cory seager having having tommy john surgery made it a lot easier to see manny machado being the shortstop of the future and segr- moving up to second so look there is an arms race but there's a constant arms race that's why there's so many thirty thousand dollar millionaires in l._a. that's why everybody has rims and nice cars because everyone's trying to outdo the joneses when you look Look at what the Lakers have done Rondo.
