"Well if you look at how their offense is trending, and you look at other defenses trending, it's actually becoming a defensive team, especially now when you can get the likes of a Lawrence and Gregory back to pair. With the young rookie there from Ohio from Penn State. Kind of scary to think about if the cowboys offense can regain some of the form and swagger we saw early in the year how difficult an out they could be in the NFC. For the likes of, of course, the packers, the bucks, just to name a few. But let's get into the games this weekend. We do have John Sheeran later on in the show. Always great to get his perspective hopefully he's not a little bit unhappy with the way we saw a rash of favorites get to the window over the weekend. So we'll pick his brain on these games. But before we do that, let's kick things off tonight. Thursday at SoFi Stadium where one of The Crown jewels of the weekend sees a battle for AFC west supremacy with the Kansas City Chiefs a modest field goal favorite as they'll head into SoFi to take on the Chargers total in this game 52 and a half at FanDuel sportsbook. When you look at Kansas City last weekend, paying a 49 point outburst, it was the second most prolific offensive performance under a patri mahomes led group. They handed the Raiders a second largest loss of the Super Bowl era. Meanwhile, the Chargers, they got out to a comfortable lead and had to hang on for dear life at the betting window with the Giants best attempts to sneak in the back door. And when you look at the way these two teams played against one another earlier this season, Justin Herbert, 281 yards passing 7 and a half yards in attempt. A one 25 passer rating with four touchdowns. Meanwhile, Patrick Mahomes did throw two picks in the game, not sure he should deserve a lion's share of the responsibility for those throws. And when you look at the chiefs, Patrick Mahomes has been outstanding against divisional opponents going 19 and three. When you bake in a little bit of the revenge, we know the chiefs will be down Chris Jones on the defensive side. Are you more interested to watch Kansas City's offense against his charger's defense pain or the strength of the Chargers their offense against the strength, I guess, so to speak of Kansas City at this point? I got to tell you, this game in general is appointment television for me. I haven't been looking forward to a Thursday night game like this one in a very, very long time. And I think there's interesting elements to both sides of the ball and start with the chiefs offense. Remember back to when the turnover bug started. It was this week three game against the Chargers in Kansas City where you mentioned the Chargers they went out right on the road as a dog. But one thing we think you've talked about, maybe a couple of times and I don't know if it's been on air with some of the guys I speak with. I can't really remember. But if you actually break that game down and look at the first three quarters, the chiefs out gained the Chargers 330 to 200. Better than a 1.1 net yard per play advantage in a plus 16% in net success rate over the first three quarters. But the turnovers happened. Those were some of the worst ones you'll see where guys are wide open and deflections happened. The Chargers didn't actually force them. And we kind of talked, I think, a little bit about mahomes interceptions. I believe only three of them are actually turnover worthy. Now, schematically, the Brandon staley defense is one that plays a shell and puts a dome over your offense, and that's the kind of defense that's given the chiefs offense, some relative problems this season. But why didn't it happen in week three? It's very bizarre because I think if you like the Chargers you're saying, hey, this is the kind of defense that have given the chief's trouble yet in week three, that exact style, the very first time the chiefs ever saw a defense with 25 mph winds to boot. The chiefs didn't really have any problems moving the ball at all. So that'll be interesting to see how that unfolds. I want to see what this charger's defense looks like tonight. I think that's a unit that can really determine the kind of run the Chargers can make this season. Let's see what that looks like as a fully healthy unit. Kenneth Murray kind of slowly working his way back more snaps last week than the previous two games. Bolt Derwin James and asante Samuel junior got in limited practices. Let's monitor that situation for tonight. I know they're going to both go out there, warm up, see if they can play. But there's guys we speak with that do nothing but watch film and they suggest the Chargers defense is trending in the right direction. More familiarity with daily system. Some health of some key cogs returning. Visually some better run defense. For me, the metrics in the film are great. And I think this podcast is probably pushed some handicappers to talk about EPA and efficiency and matchups more and less of the bullshit analysis of ticket counts and bet percentages and narrative. But I think it's important when you are looking at EPA metrics to include some level of context, right? And so yes, the Chargers run defense the last two weeks. 8th best in the league, in EPA. And no doubt you had the Chargers defense kind of fly around early in the Cincinnati game. They responded after being called out a little bit. But the bangles were down two starting offensive linemen in that game. The Chargers got up 24 to nothing. How effective is an opposing run game going to be in that scenario? The Giants were trailing 24 to 7 at the break. You don't just fire up the run game at that point. I do think there is some noise in the improvements defensively for the Chargers run game. And we saw the chiefs have some success running it in that week three matchup. Now when I look at trending metrics since the buy, the Chargers are 19th in EPA per play allowed 22nd and success rate out. The first 7 weeks pre buy, the Chargers were 19th and EPA per play allowed 29th and success rates. So my gut says yes, some incremental improvement has taken shape with the Chargers defense and when Darwin and asante returned, that's massive. But I'm kind of just struggling with the Chargers right now. Let's put a magnifier on what's transpired semi recently. You can't forget the drubbing Baltimore put on the Chargers pre buy. And then the Chargers come out of the bay, they lose to the Patriots. Nothing wrong with that, although the scoreboard. Closer than reality with that late touchdown, which we were all happy about, because I think we went over in that game Todd. And then that game was more of a sweat than it ever should have been. That's for damn sure. Yes, there was some rare stuff transpiring in the red zone early and in the green zone. It took Justin Herbert going 32 for 38 to kick a game winning field goal to beat Philly. You lose to the Vikings, you hold on for dear life against Pittsburgh, but gave up 37 to a steelers team that had a quarterback clear to play. I believe Saturday at midnight, Big Ben had to hop on a private plane at 2 a.m. to fly across the country for a Sunday game. Denver embarrasses you. And then the Chargers beat Cincinnati, a projected 6 and a half win team before the season. And then you beat the Mike glennon led giants. I'm having a real tough time with the Chargers in general. When you look at the Chargers offensively, we know life without rashon slater won't be easy tonight against the Kansas City Chiefs. Although they are given a little bit of a lifeline, no Chris Jones, who leads the chiefs and sacks with 7. He would be unavailable as well..

"I mean, I understand the mindset, but we're not, we're not run defenses, got to stop this. We've got to there is free agency too. Like, we're going to fill these in more than just the draft. So I guess it's what do you want to eat your cap's face with less, 'cause you're going to be paying that rookie guy a lot less. I don't know. I really don't. I think the tackle. I think we're gonna go D tackle in the first round. And find a way to resolve that right. Right tackle is not as big of a salary bust as a left tackle. So then you can find a good solid strong right tackle and free agency to short things up once the log just turns to ashes and never sees the last day ever again apparently. I've never seen the guy. Rudy looks like so we're just we're riding we're riding for log off, like he's never gonna be able to stand it. Can't stay healthy. Whatever the injury was to require what two surgeries during the season like before the season even really started. I mean, in his age, and you take all that into consideration like, yeah, he's not going to get another contract. No, no, no, no, no. Yeah, I think the D is where the biggest issues are, like, again, like Justin Herbert throws amazing when he's under pressure. He's got like almost. It's fine. Pressure's fine. Throw it and make a touchdown. Don't do it. Jeeves, thank you for making us laugh and asking a great question and thank you everybody is always for asking all the questions and ask bolt fam. We truly appreciate it. And before we leave this episode, it's time to make some bolt predictions of the Minnesota Vikings game coming up this Sunday. What are our bolt predictions? Kyle, you go first. Okay? I'll go first. I have us winning the game 31 24. And I have Justin Jefferson with zero catches. Zero catches. Holy. It was just like did you hit your no punt returns last game? Yeah, you did. You said no, we weren't gonna give up any punt return yards because we didn't punt Kyle. I think you're onto something. Oh, Kyle, right? Who's the closest now? Holy shit, you hit that. I just realized that Jefferson zero catches throw up. He's gonna be, yeah. He's gonna be eating a lot. Let's see. I'm gonna say I'm gonna say 27 17 and I'm gonna say I'm gonna say Kenneth Murray gets a sack. Oh, he's back. He's back, baby. Yeah, he's getting sex. I like it. Before anyone asks all of our predictions are always the Chargers winning. Yeah. We don't ever say 31 24 chargers. It just goes without saying. It goes without saying. Yeah. So I'm gonna go 34 20 chargers. And I think those are not saying. I think parham gets two touchdowns. To the tall man. I like it. Yeah. I think it's gonna listen to this episode here with Craig had to say about turning zone. This is gonna get too teddy's. There you go. I like the idea. All right, folks, well, that is it for both predictions, and that is it for this episode. Thank you, folks for sticking with us. We really do appreciate it. And we'll see you again on Friday. So folks, don't forget to bolt up. Because we're ready for any squad, any place. I love you bye. Okay, love you bye. Okay, love you bye. Ah. Ah. And now, a word from our sponsors. Hey, you. Yeah, you. Did you put that shopping cart back? No. Why not? You in a hurry or something? It takes literally ten seconds. What's so important? Do you literally need to go to a class on how to return your shopping cart? Well, now you can introducing Justin Herbert's card returning one O one. The class that teaches you how to be a decent member of society by just putting your cart back you lazy jackass. Justin Herbert's cart returning one O one. Consider this your invitation. I haven't really woken up. Oh, until I've had my McDonald's breakfast deal and I know this is true because before breakfast, I put my phone in the refrigerator and couldn't find the keys that were already in my hand. Nothing gets the morning going like the first sip of an iced coffee. Get any size in any flavor for 99 cents until 11 a.m.. Price and participation may vary. McDonald's, I'm loving it.

"Justin Herbert, Austin aguilera and our past catchers have to score more points than Dalvin cook. And, you know, we have to make sure Kirk Cousins is uncomfortable. 'cause they have some good pass catchers on there, sign of the ball with, you know, Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson. We got to limit those guys, hopefully we get Watteau back. I think he's trending in the right direction. But we need to get some players healthy. Hopefully Kenneth Murray can get back out there. So maybe hopefully we can get some reinforcements because we're going to need them. They're a good team. The Vikings are, so any Justin Herbert to will and Bill also, so it's going to be fun. Totally. Another 300 yards would be awesome Justin keep that record building that thing. Keep going. And hopefully, you know, you know, getting those cornerbacks back, hopefully I don't think everyone realized how big of a deal that was. Like, they give up a lot on the outside this game. So hopefully we can lock that down, stop that run. And we don't need to have the best run defense in the league. We just need to be better than 32nd. Yeah, yeah, you know, I don't think 30 seconds quite do the job. No. We do. We definitely got to be better in that department for sure. That's going to be, I mean, it's been a problem. And you know, you think, Brandon staley will eventually figure it out at least a lesson the impact there. But it's going to get tested the most has been tested this Sunday against Alvin cook because he's one of the best running backs on league obviously. Yeah, for sure. And with you, I'm going to the game so hopefully we can bring some good vibes and get loud and put them off as put them off as game this week. Let's go. Hopefully, bring the energy. I know you will, for sure. No, we will for sure brother. So dude it was so awesome meeting you man and thank you so much for your time coming on and chatting with us. Hey, yeah, I appreciate it so much. It's been an absolute honor. Love the podcast. I think it's the best podcast out there. So keep your y'all are doing. I love it. All right, man, well we appreciate you and yeah, man, let's go get the W on Sunday. Let's go. Let's keep it rolling. Okay, love you bye. I love you bye. Jay Rudy. Buddy. That was Rudy. Rudy, ready, ready, ready? That was what a great story. It was so funny. As you're telling the story about going to the book fair, we had another guy on here. I want to say, it might have been Brian, Brian Rick, might have been the guy that went to a book fair and he got the little eraser eraser. Yeah, I found a school or whatever. Yeah, Brian, if it's not you, I apologize, but I'm trying to remember who it was, but somebody came on and was like, yeah, I saw the charger eraser. And that was their link into the fandom. And now to have Jay Rudy, go to another poster and get a charger poster to have that be his link like, wow, that what are the odds? That's impressive. And just how we watch four years. That's incredible. That is dedication. Yeah, you're starting out hardcore, you don't even get to see the colors on TV, the whole deal. My best part of the Chargers are unique. Yeah. I wonder if you just had the poster his LT poster on the wall just kind of looking at the thing looking up, looking at the cast visual poster. Visualize. You put yourself in there. Like holding like a little stick of like healthy moving down a little action figure. I love it. And then he was like, I don't like, I'm not going to quote him exactly. He was like, I'm not a bears fan. Can we watch some chargers? Make me laugh. That was awesome. That was awesome. That was really cool. Jay Rudy, thank you for coming on and chatting with my man, Kev hug and dug in. Appreciate folks. Now it is time to go on to the next segment. You know him you love him. The Craig experience. Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Come on in, man. Kick your feet up. Oh, great. Hello there. Make yourself at home. Got some stuff to talk about, right? Moving on. Thumbs up. Els down. If you can't swim with the boat gang, you might drown CC found. Big salute to the rest of the boat gang was goody. She got crack in Texas coming to you with a winning edition of the Craig experience. And it's been like a month since we had one of these joints. And I'm, you know, really, really happy about it. But of course, it wouldn't be a charges game. If it didn't come down to a final possession, a field goal, you know, it just is what it is and we know what to expect at this point. But we'll take the ws have and we can get them, of course. This one was interesting. And of course we got to look at everything. We don't want to be completely biased to just the good. We have to attack the things that our areas of opportunities I like to call them. Defensively. Let's just get this out of the way. Guys, the roster is what it's gonna be. Don't look for any real significant changes to come in the run defense. There's a reason I believe there were no real moves made of the trade deadline, but I'll get to that in a few. But yeah, yo, I told you Justin Jones, you know, as he is added depth, which is something that's needed, so guys aren't in that snap after snap getting big boy. At least for rotational purposes. But other than that, JJ, doing a whole lot to help that run defense. Weekend and week out just expected. If a team has a solid offensive line running backs, probably gonna get the ball crammed down our throats for at least a buck 50 a week. So, you know, just prepare yourselves for that every week. Don't get annoyed with it during the game. I know it was easy to say, easier said than done. But it's just a fact. At this point, nothing's really going to change that. But again, I'll get to why I think they kind of settled in the hands of the trade deadline in a minute. Yo, quick question. How do y'all like y'all's chicken? Well, you know what? It's November. Thanksgiving's coming up so let's go to Turkey route. I personally like mine smoked if you want yours fried baked. Whatever your thing is, that's what Chris Harris is homies cooked. I'm thankful that and I'm sure the team is as well, you know, staley made mention of this. Grateful that he's able to be versatile enough to play many positions in the.

"All over the internet where they're talking about like throws and catchable balls and all that stuff in herbert's has all of his balls have been extremely catchable. It's been dropped sees I i'm not. I'm not i'm not talking any of this like you know. He's slightly injured. Hand is the reason why he's off target and we talked about it last week. He's been put it on their hands. They're just dropping everything right So i think that's that's more where it's at okay. So there you go but that to bed Dana popper also tweeted out Kenneth murray Was back at practice today and has been designated to return from. I are charges. Have twenty one days to activate him. So what do you do you think. He's going to be playing anytime soon because he did the same thing with justin jones and they activated them like the day before and he was playing like. What are you guys. Do you think we're going to be waiting on this activation. So i think they're i think they're going to be wanting every able bodied out there right now because we are in that like this. Is that part of the schedule. That we've all talked about as being very winnable so we got to ensure we have the guys out there that can win that game. We're also super cautious on. Getting people back are not rushing. Anyone backed justin jones. Missed six weeks. They are letting guys take their time to get back out there. kenneth murray. He rolled his ankle like it. It they'd let him sit on it pretty pretty long to make sure that he's back. I really don't know that this this news to me doesn't indicate anything once he's like full participant going like getting after practice of again is probably gonna play. But i don't think not having practiced and now four weeks and then just activated for return means they wanna see what he looks like. He's doing out there. I don't know i don't know. I'm hopeful that. He does play on sunday but i don't think they're forcing people back before they're ready was sure likely the next week biking's maybe he's fully ready. We don't we just don't we don't know we haven't seen what the status has been in practice. If he's been you know if he's capable to fully practiser limited or any of that business so We will see. But if i'm bet man i'm i'm thinking we're gonna see kenneth on sunday. That's that's my that's my take hope And then over Gavino burkas tweeted out brandon. Staley said kenneth. Moore's role is evolving. Which means that he could get more nabs as a pass rusher when he returns from the i..

"I'm sorry i was very wrong Outside of the penalty which was bullshit. Was not your fault. Kaiser you great the. I thought i had you down for at least two Tackles for loss. Certainly three run stops. I thought kaiser was everywhere. On the field sideline to sideline playing downhill will good in coverage everything asked him to plan the perfect role for him in this defense and he made the most of his opportunity. So i'm sorry i was wrong. I lumped you in with somebody who is not playing well right now when in fact we all playing very well. So it was all murray. It wasn't you. It was all kenneth murray and you're great on on sunday. Yeah i wanna attacked him on that apology with kaiser white On after hours. I said that it was a dump play for kaiser white. I didn't think he got his head around. Quick enough i thought he was looking in the backfield and inadvertently ran into amari cooper on fourth down play. I was wrong. Amari cooper one hundred percents force that contact. That was not our white. Kaiser jamie sorry. I'm sorry that's my bad. That was not on you. That was not your fault. Those definitely a misplayed by the refs amari should got the offensive passer fearance. He initiated the contact. Their charter should've got the ball back. That's all bad because you're white. I'm sorry i apologize. And i talked about a little bit earlier joey. Bosa got to apologize kind of alluded to him being a no show and not getting any any real pressure on knack there was pressure there was no sacks but outside of that he had a really good game stuff that didn't show up and i think we all expect joey bosa to get you know three. Qb hits the sacra to and he didn't on sunday so i just assumed that he didn't have a good game he did have a good game. Joey bosa. I'm sorry you're our boy you know you are well. We're always have that connection with you. Joey bosa around podcasts. So i apologize. Kyw's your white boasts. Those are my apologies this week. A i will echo the apology bosa. He wasn't one of mine. But i think that's a good apology and we both kind of had it wrong saying. He didn't play on sunday. The other apology. That i have and this may surprise. Some people is Joe lombardi. I thought he had a better a better game calling plays and i gave him credit for. I felt like on on after hours. I said that. I thought that the play calling was uneven and it was a little predictable and they just didn't have any flow or any rhythm and it just didn't feel like they were stressing the defense enough going back and watching the game on on film. They were able to do whatever they want to do whenever they wanted to. Do it They you know they had. I think three thirty or pass plays called back. The only complaint. I have is running on six seven first downs to start. Their possessions. didn't care for that. But aside from that he got keenan involved he got mike involved. He had involved. Maybe a little too much in some spots. And i don't know that's lombardi thing or a herbert thing Cook was involved. They got palmer and guyton involved a little bit. They even had a touchdown pass. Call back to parham. They basically got everybody involved in all three levels of the defense in the passing game. They had some big splash. Plays in the running game so lombardi. I'm sorry the calling was much better than i gave credit for on after hours and hopefully it will continue and the red zone. Efficiency will pick up starting like right away. Yeah like right now yesterday. Yeah yeah they did. They had everything going. And that was the vibe. It was not cohesive and it didn't the flow wasn't good in that game but that's because when every other play call is a penalty of course it doesn't feel like there's a rhythm or anything when plays being stopped and flags or getting picked up and plays they're getting wiped off the board of course watching it live. It feels like there's no rhythm but that's because there's so many penalties there's a lot of splash plays..

"We were worried about going into the game so nausea low. Here that you high so derwin was down in that outside. Linebacker nicole kind of look Instill great extremely high. So yeah i think it was a. We wanted as more of a true. What will we hope to see him. In kinda roy. Yeah withdrew sarah still in the game but adapted in still had not a great game. He didn't have like a lot of huge big toys. But i still believe that quarterback siham don't wanna throw him. I mean clearly. They don't live from his last game that we saw was that dak prescott did not throw a touchdown. Now i mean we. Vince is clearly doing something right. I know he gets a lot of shades for our run. Only less lesson. Do look what look what you did. Last game like threw for four hundred yards. The ball fifty they. They weren't like our defenses that strong. That's gonna he always coach. Always put the top on the top receivers on coverage right. They put the job on the coverage but unfortunately they were able to run. That's i think we just as a as a fan base. You need to get more used to it. I think the cover three. You have one high save these that means you have another guy in the box so you take away the run. So what teams do they throw the ball a lot live opposite now. We have to is is less likely that they're going to see that and say. Hey we should have numbers those run. So it's just we're still adjusting to getting used. Do we agree. We heard his post-game. He knows that they did not do good. Against iran took some chances on some slant stuff they got taken advantage of. We got exploit in a little bit. We had some guys out. Just john is a big hit so we do need to do better absolutely but i think as a whole we need it used to seeing more rush russia gems as defense compared with the last couple of years one. It's all about the you know it's the crazy thing is that our offense wasn't able to put up the points. They showed of assamese to change that. That is the one thing that is the is. The defense keeps playing the way they're ply took twenty twenty points. That's a winning win. Now you have to win you keep team to twenty points or less. You have to win all right absolutely and like we said the very very beginning of the season when we looked at the schedule you look at who were playing these first six weeks you come out of their five hundred or you're in good shape 'cause our record during the reform through with yar that the so that sucks yes should have won that he had. That's hard we should have won the amount of time. I got up and celebrated and turned around high-fiving people and then i miss cowboy fan. I could be like dirty dancing me up with full. The by la dirty little cowboy fan like defying. You got over there. But i that guy was okay. Because he had it was like he brought a shield. He brought his twelve month old son. Whatever the game currently all whatever we wanted to turn around and be like. I can't hold his baby yet. Dip over the you one step removed. Yeah i mean there was a tweet came up. Recently that michael peterson put out the. Nfl's top ten evans's my yardage with the points per game. Shockingly the raiders are at the top. I can't believe that the raiders are averaged eight yards game weeks about this. Yeah that's that's up but let's see one two three four five six down is the los angeles chargers at four hundred thirty Or excuse me four sixteen but we've only put up eighteen and a half and a half hour game that's our average. Yeah everyone else everyone else. Here's well above. Twenty points out has thirty four. And they're like five spots below us. Yeah so that is the amp as it is not having these weird penalties. It's getting the ball in the end zone. You know herber started off with a foreigner. Three interceptions for interceptions reenters substituted and flag. That's not great man. We're selling these games so shows you. How strong are offenses that he's doing that. We're still in the game. Usually we'd have turnover. The game was over. We right on your down by seven week. You never catch up different thing. Seeing him in person just throw wherever he wanted. I feel he's better passer. When he's on the run like when he's rambling bootleg all day long. Go do whatever you want runaround. Because he gets more accurate when he's on visiting possible. Zoos accurate news in pockets. Decide but it was pretty crazy. Our offense was strong. You could just see. It just could not get that. In averaging over four hundred yard the game in offense phrases problem was like once we get in the red zone. It's either going to get turned over as we've seen these two games just these two games that we've seen it's either gotten turned over or Penalties have negated the scores. And we just haven't been able to put those points. These are things that can be fixed absolutely effects. yeah. I mean like we have. Oh my god. Is the boat shipping new talent. It's not a lack of inadequate scheme. It's nothing like that. It's just cleaning crap up and going and this may go back to the idea that not playing the preseason. There's a little bit. We took the health advantage. Which we have still going gave up some of the sloppiness that you get out of your way in the preseason right that could be the shameless deposited take is we're getting some that sloppiness out of the way here early and were still healthy now through two games so let's go now gotten out of our way. That's your normal preseason snaps. go Better i think that was one of the interesting takes. I mean we. We had the the duggan's dad pick us up after we got home from the bus and one of the things that he said that i did kind of find interesting. Was that in regards to adding the preseason coach. Coaching senior Is that. it's not so much about like you know not getting guys used to getting banged up and football and stuff like that. It's not that timing getting that timing because you can time all you want in practice but is actually getting out of the game and getting that timing down when you have a defender that's trying to get achy is is buying saw. The person yeah. I thought that was kind of interesting. So i mean there's obviously a give and take with not playing the preseason. I thought that was an interesting. Take from Coach senior looking over at some of the players. We did see. Kenneth murray go down and it scared the hell out of us. It was so weird being in person like down down down tiles like popper. We need doctors yard about it. We got poverty before anyone in the city. Yeah yeah it was a notification. Durham our canterbury's out before we even came back from the the commercial break right as we category went down scared us for hossack humane back again and austin took a hit head. Yeah that's scared us as well because his health part just fell out of his mouth about when he got hurt at the end of the last season to remember he got pop. Pretty hard there so i don't want any concussion. What a catch all the that was the one. Hold onto the ball we. We're so lucky to have him incredibly so those those are the two that we saw him person that was just like oh holy cow but apparently joey bosa also got kind of little rolled up onto something apparently from fernando ramirez Chargers ed rusher. Joey bosa says about his leg being wrapped up after the game I rolled my ankle is feeling a bit sore. Nothing serious. we didn't need that turned eight. That was an injured. It's one of those things in football. Everyone gets hurt injured. You're out you're out for a while. But everyone has to play her young faculty dean games. Just wish joy. What got to the quarterback a little bit more but they weren't really throwing the problem the more they weren't in obvious passing situations where you can go back and go. What part of. What makes joey so good against iran is. He doesn't just fly field. He's making that read that first two steps and then goes he didn't have a lot of clear goes and long long yard situations where you'd a. Yeah he kinda got like an on one of those sacks. Yeah that was hillary endure wondering were quite an for. He got his hand on dax. We can get the ball out..

"Don't think so. Is that michael davis textile right now saying thanks for the good words. Michael's my boy third podcast talk about. I mean we talked a little bit about. But what do you think about this year. Kenneth murray and jesus i mean just missed tackles after missed tackles and i know that high that play on the last driver kenneth murray got that big stop in the hole on the last drive with three forty five left in the game is probably gonna pop up in people's heads but the missed tackles. They blown coverages today hurt or not. He played awful and to me. It was kind of almost a breath of fresh air when tranquil came on he made a play Play right away on the second play. He was in kansas where it comes back. But i mean i. I know that staley's zanies a big part of his defense but he is hurting them right now. His tackling is awful. Yeah i mean. I don't know they're treating him like a ten year veteran who's been multiple time pro bowler i you know. He's never comes off the field unless he's hurt does murray and i i just don't think he's. He's really earned that yet. I know people want to praise him because he had all those tackles last year I you know he's a guy who's making his play. His tackles not play tackles for five six seven yards downfield most time because he doesn't see second level linemen. He's not able to shed them. He's missing tackles. he's getting pushed back. I just the. I'm i haven't been terribly impressed with him i. I'm not sure using him right. You know. I really would have liked to see him. And maybe we'll see it later in the season if they continue to struggle to get pressure but i really thought he was a guy who would be much better suited to play as an edge in this defense some really can move around and use to get pressure and their blitzing him on occasion. But i just think needs to be an attack mode and he seems like he's stuck in neutral we know kind of on his heels is stuck in the backfield flat-footed really not making plays at all just kind of waiting for guys to come to him. Not coming down attacking and that's what. They drafted him for. That's i would assume that's why they drafted him was because he made so many. Plays attacking the line of scrimmage in college and they just haven't asked him in either scheme that he's played in so far and you know to be fair to him. He is learning scheme. The reads probably a little bit different. The keys are probably a little bit different But he is just not the predator that they built him up to be when they drafted him and hopefully he grows into that role. But he just doesn't seem. I don't know just doesn't have that trigger. He just does. He's not making plays the way they need him to. Absolutely just in here love. You guys is a great decompression good. I'm glad because we're doing this all season. So you better get used to it. We got fifteen more these maybe even more if they get the blow up so get used to it and i want to get this out of the way. No neck you suck. You're the one that apology. A t- man wants Wants to know. Is there any positives from the linebacking core. I thought kyw's your white plated unbelievable game gave one. I loved his role in this defense. I think is suited for him. I think he was okay today. He had his ups and downs. But kenneth murray has been an issue so far jamie jimmy touch on all of the linebacker core has been an issue and again. It's not all on them. A lot of it has to do with the play. The guys in front of them But they just have not been free to make the plays you need to make. And they're they're they've been left to just clean up other people's messes after players are making plays down the field so they need to find a way to get those guys more involved in an attacking manner blitzing manner which is what i thought they were going to do with white because that's what he excelled in college and they really haven't done that yet. No i have a feeling it's coming though. And they had covering wide receivers in the slot today. Yeah i had gus bradley flashbacks ever wanna have gus bradley. Fat flashbacks got derwin james. Just put them in the slot. It seemed like such an easy. Not that hard. No chris harris derwin can take over. He can do it all Do you think you guys overplayed to the first. Home game hype. I don't know if we cared about the first the question. Do you guys think they overplayed good defensive. It wasn't i didn't read the question. Garrett hey listen or three beers and you're going to be a little fuzzy. But no i don't. I don't know if it's any of that. They were definitely undisciplined. And that was an issue. But i you know. I don't know if the crowd or the first home game high pen anything to do with it you know. I don't think so. I just got outplayed. And they got hose on a couple of calls and they hurt themselves badly in certain situations and they couldn't overcome it this week. There's one thing i wanted to talk about and that was staley going for too early in that game. Yes and so That at that point of the game early in the game and he wanted to cut the lead to three. And i saw a tweet that went out from e. Dj sports that said the two point conversion when completed out of the chargers win probability to three point three percent there would have went for one it would have been as zero a zero point one percent so little to no value to their win probability if they would've kicked the extra point it goes up three point three percent by going to at that point in the game so it seemed to me doing the analytics in game. Beautiful thing loved being aggressive early. Yeah i liked it. It just felt like a like one of those Innate feelings that you have you know they're they're moving the ball up and down the field. They have some momentum. If you believe a momentum you wanna keep that going defense is on its heels. Everybody's going into this game thinking the dallas defense terrible. Just put some pressure on them and get those extra two points. Make it a three point game. Four point game. Why not make one score game instead of keeping it a to score game. I know it's a novel concept. it's not something. Anthony landed. Mike mccoy never ever would have done but it was nice to see a brand new daily. Do even if it didn't result in the win yeah nelson moody given an update ultimo. R- baltimore's taken lean over kc chargers maybe not last place in the afc west maybe tied for last place in the afc west. With the broncos and raiders winning today and what. Do you think about chris bernhardt. Do you think Murray's draft position is kind of forcing this coaching staff to continue to try him out. There stately didn't draft him. Staley didn't draft him. I mean if you draft someone in the first round you expect him to be out there more often than not. I don't know if it's forcing them. I've i'm sure they're probably convincing themselves. They're just waiting for him to break out because they saw some hints of him breaking out towards the end of last season. Making some sideline to sideline plays. He just isn't making those plays right now. he's not coming down. He's not making the sideline to sideline plays. And i just feel like they're stuck waiting for him And i think they might also lake. They prefer the physicality there with him. And the maybe they don't feel like tranquil is as physical those two are. Yeah it's weird. They had they they talk tranquil up all preseason which seemed a little.

"All right all right. So i know i know. Things seem to be a little shaky last week. It was a little different. All right. I did well just not as good as plan because i mean it was week one. And y'all know for shore that a lotta those. Y'all couldn't call yourselves all right. So gimme gimme a little break but hey we really got to break this down. Figure this out this week or at least avenue man. I went nine. Seven nine ws seven losses on my predictions from last week. This week is going to be different. I guarantee you. I do better all right. So bear with me man really trying to side. Also of these because of these are Tougher and some of them are a lot more obvious Unless we have a week to surprise which hope that doesn't come about. I don't know of anything to make that adjustment to where that's the case but guess we'll be able to see man. Hey thursday tonight game to call gotta be on new york giants versus the washington football team right and the reason is tough is because boy let me tell you. The nfc least is nfc lease for a reason man Start with what. We talked about their game last week. versus the chargers and to be honest. I didn't see enough from both organizations specifically washington. More okay your top receiver to mclaren only have four sections to yards not td runningback. Not heineke came in. You had injuries. We still trying to figure out where things stand. I believe you know. Fitzpatrick might be out for this game as well. So heineke in. He went eleven fifteen. They entrusted with the football air. Too much that's fair. It only got one down which twenty two yards. so look. if you're not getting any you know play from there then i mean what would we do only relying on divas which i guess you could say they did sally. They kept the los angeles chargers to only twenty points. Which is a salad often. They have really good offense. Their defense is more questionable. But the offense they gotta do actually won the game right so when you look at the box score though you can clearly see that there was a lot of misfires. There was a lot going on regardless of heineke doing eleven fifteen. But when you look at the you know the skill players none of running back none people to have russia's there was zero rushing touchdowns. Okay the row now. I don't know if you wanna give credit to joey bosa and company. I mean kenneth murray had the most tackles okay and they only had three tablets for four tackles for loss. So can't put it on that. There were seven quarterback hits could have been more should have been more. I mean depends. You're asking. I assume. But i'd have to say that when if i had to bet on. Who has the better defense. As far as to get into quarterback. I would i would say it's the washington football team yet. They only had five washington. Football team has to be more aggressive on defense as well as be more successful on offense with that being said bringing me back to new york giants new york giants look even worse. The new york giants scored just three points. Lis- offense but i feel like those almost like gimme points. They were able to finesse those. In my opinion daniel jones twenty to thirty seven so trust him putting the ball and air but he didn't connect connect enough house. Daniel jones the slow quarterback that they have the leading. Rusher six cares for twenty seven yards. Twenty seven yards. They ought to be ashamed. Himselves okay Sterling shepherd had a solid game so whoever have him on their fantasy team. I guess they probably had him on the bench to be completely honest. But better than i guess Yeah dale jones. Qbr of forty nine cents for those that are unfamiliar with are in Is basically like a grape system so yes at one hundred is a really good grade to get. That is an a it. Eighty s b so forth. So on he had a forty laugh. He failed feeling great. Saquon barkley ten carries twenty six yards. How how's danny jones Six carries twenty seven yards. I mean yes probably a breakout yadda yadda but saquon barkley. Tin carries not getting anywhere. Look you don't have any run game. No one's afraid to you for being honest giants so that makes it to be. That's what it's coming down for me. I mean i saying that washington put one up themselves but look at least they got they already noted on necessarily have a number one person to go to whereas the giants are supposed to but to piddle will hopefully. He's feeling better. I wanted to feel better. I want him to do well. But just not the case at the time so as we watch the game tonight at seven twenty pm that is central standard time leading german. Okay all right. I believe at the washington. Football team will defeat the new york giants in another teen. Game so Let's say the new york giants scrape and obviously my my my points who were a lot. Different story than me actually choosing winners. But i believe washington wins this by a touchdown.

"I don't know we were really really really high on all these players you were. You were a little hard on norton. I don't i. Wasn't that hard on norton and caja hill mike williams. We gave them their praise for their play. We i wonder. Would we praised kenneth murray after the game because he led the team in tackles. Is that something you wanna walk back after watching the game. I don't think we praise. Kenneth mary much. I don't think we. I don't remember us mentioning him much at all. Somebody asked about the game. He had pointed out that he led the team in tackles. Okay walk by. Yeah he but he was quiet. That is true. It was a very quiet game and yes he made a lot of tackles and make a ton of plays and obviously. He's got a big role in this team and we'll have to do a little bit better but i mean he was.

"Fans are a little livid about it, too. So the Steelers are going to have the ball about the Buffalo 22 yard line, trailing by a score of 10 to 6. The Bills had another fourth and one in Pittsburgh territory at the Pittsburgh 41. They got cute. Josh Allen threw a backwards past and Matt Brita I don't think Brita was going to throw the ball because from what I could see, there weren't any bills receivers in the pattern, so I don't know exactly what they were thinking. Unless they're going to go back to Alan. Possibly I. It was blown up so quickly by Cameron Sutton. That we really didn't get a chance to see what the bills had in mind on that play, but it was a backwards pass that they lost eight yards on so that the Steelers were able to start this drive on the Buffalo on their own 48 yard line. And no Najee Harris finally is getting a chance to find some yardage, which he hasn't been able to do all game. Just a little while ago he had a nine yard run, and he just had another Fairly long run now, so now in 18 yard run, so the Pittsburgh Steelers are now going to have a first and goal on the Buffalo five yard line and you were. We were talking a little bit earlier about. Maybe the Pittsburgh Steelers should go for a touchdown as they had a first and goal or a third goal situation in the fourth and goal situation. They settled. For Boswell 20 yard field goal so that he has two short field goals by Boswell. We see if they can get their first touchdown of this game and take the lead in this game. As they got the first and goal from the Buffalo five yard line, and before I leave, I just want to see if they happen to score on this play, and they do. So the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to take the lead. It was a bobble play by in the end zone, but it's going to be a touchdown by Deontay Johnson, a five yard TD he was well covered by one by Wallace. But, yeah, that's going to be a good catch in the Steelers are going to take the lead, and we'll see if they get the extra point. But either way they are going to have the lead right now. It is 12 10 pending the extra point staler, sending a little bit of an early statement that they're still here and trying to make the playoffs this year. What a catch. That was, though by the anti Johnson. I think he got both feet in bounds so The Steelers up, we'll see if they could finish the game. There was a turnover from the Washington football team where the Chargers able to capitalize Let's go to the Rooster and Chris Russell. Yes, they were Zack and they've taken a 2016 lead with 11 21 left to go Justin Herbert just hooking up on the three yard touchdown throw and catch for Mike Williams in the back quarter of the end zone. Right after that turnover that you were talking about, which was Antonio Gibson. He was upended and fumbled and it was forced by Qaseer White and recovered by Kenneth Murray. Uh, for the Chargers, and that was just moments after Justin Herbert was picked off inside the Washington five yard line by William Jackson, the third who, of course, signed a big contract, leaving Cincinnati and coming over to Washington. It was the second red zone turnover of the half for the Chargers earlier And I don't think we even got a chance to talk about this month has sweat sacked, Herbert forced a fumble. Oddly, it came as he was throwing the ball shot forward. They ruled it a fumble. They reviewed it, and they kept it as such, despite replays, looking like he was actually throwing the ball so that resulted in a touchback and again a turnover for the Chargers because they were so deep in Washington. Territory. So really, the charges have hurt themselves here, and that's why they only have now a four point lead 20 to 16 with 11 21 left to go again. The big other story in this one is Ryan Fitzpatrick, out with a hip, of course, has not returned when ruled out. He left after just six throwing attempts and 13 yards. In his Washington debut. Taylor Hi, Nikki 10 of 13, a Buck 21 a touchdown and 1 30.6 quarterback rating So far for the Washington football team who trail Los Angeles 22 16 Jack back to you Now, with a little over 11 minutes to go in that contest, we are in the fourth quarter. Under 10 minutes to go, and this one Seattle and Indianapolis, Let's go to Tom McCabe. Yeah. Nine minutes and 56 seconds to be exact here, and the score is the same as it was at the half 21 to 10 Seattle with the lead the defense's for both teams, really taking over. In the third quarter and early here in the fourth quarter. Carson Wentz was just sacked, and it was very costly for Indianapolis. His third sack of the afternoon. It came on fourth down is Indianapolis was driving, trying to put some points on the board. They were down to the 15 yard line of of Seattle, but again once us sacked, and so, um Seattle takes over right now. Tried to put some more points on the board Carson Wentz, making his first start for Indianapolis after not playing at all during the preseason and missing most of our most of the practices. So far this afternoon. He is 19 of 34 184 yards again. He has been sacked three times. Russell Wilson, who's just completed a 20 yard pass is now gone over 200 yards for the game. He's completed 15 of 20. He's also been sacked three times and again. This goes back to the third quarter, when both of the defenses are shining. For both teams. As far as the Russian game goes Indianapolis lacking there, which just 70 total yards 122 for Seattle, Chris Carson with 81 of those Tyler Lockett with 96 yards receiving for Seattle. He has to Big touchdown catches this afternoon. So again, we have nine minutes and 20 seconds to go in this game, and Seattle has the ball and a 21 to 10 lead over Indianapolis. Every game right now is in the second half. Most games are in the fourth quarter. How are they going to end you'll find out when we come on back, and if you're interested In a little wager. If you're believing in Buffalo, I know that it's been a sloppy offensive day for the bills. They're down by three. If you still think the bills are going to come back and win on the live line right now, you can get them as a 2.5 point underdog. And plus 1 10 on the money line will tell you how the second half does play out how the fourth quarter all comes to a close when we come on back. This is ion football. Was that guilt? First up? Let's get an update in here is Seth Cantor. CBS for sale. Sports Flag. All right, Zack, this report sponsored by five hour energy, It's the one when you got to get stuff done..

"A whole bunch of mondo had to. They added a whole new protocol in terms of how they handle practice stretching rest before and after how they handle the preseason and some of this obviously goes back to luck. But i appreciate. And i'm sure chargers fans appreciate that. This new coaching staff than just say well. the football. god's got the chargers again last year and they actually made an effort here. And i just think the spoon of good health which could blow up in the second quarter by week one. Of course we know that but they're locked and loaded with arguably the most exciting young roster and football and and their offensive line missions off line. I mean that was that was an issue and they look strong up front right now. That's that's a dangerous football team. Blog has been in and out. That's one of those votes. They didn't play at all in the preseason. You're right on paper. It looks good. That's a that's a week one test and you're not gonna learn. I think one is almost like extended preseason at this point especially for school rams and chargers full. You know it's hard to evaluate too much on paper. Though you're right like joey bosa to me is is such an important part of that team that needs to be healthy throughout but if you kind of look at the rest of their defense. They're little thin next to him but the linebacker group like they're excited about the linebackers that they have. Because you're white. Kenneth murray like drew tranquil. Like that is a sneaky. Good young group the add asante samuel and a lotta people noticed. I mean we're going deep here on on the charges. We haven't talked about them that they they cut tyrant johnson who made a lot of good plays with herbert last year. And wow like people were really surprised that that told me like. They like their receivers if he couldn't make that team. That tells me okay like i feel almost a little better about the chargers receivers if he couldn't make that team that's a prize me but it shows that like they like the depth that they have at receiver which we did not a lot of big names behind the starters but could be guys especially josh palmer the rookie that make a lot of big place. One fly in the ointment. Because i think it's fair to throat with all the all the good vibes. There is a general feeling like wow. They got rid of anthony lynn. And they're gonna solve their game management issues. They were thirty second and expected points added on special teams last year for instance and we know all the clock. Gaffes down the stretch But this is good for mike sando at the athletic they did a ranking of afc teams and they rank the chargers number six and like vote but one voter said that remained remains to be seen if they will improve game management wise their head coach and three coordinators have a combined three seasons of coordinating experience. Wade phillips had more in like nine thousand nine hundred five so the game management stuff is not locked. That's that's fair some just going to sprinkle in a little bit. Beware chargers fans emma's selfish especially because that was not a last year anomaly that goes back decades with the chargers. Yeah plus i think daniel jeremiah. Still there radio guy. So that's that's okay. I mean you want to get money a huge extension f- you want to see what else you need that money in the wife We were talking about whether to listen to podcasts. At one point five speed or not the. Move the sticks podcasts. That's the one you can listen to one and a half to celery to finish. Just bang bang through. I loved because andrew sicilian brought it up on air to weiss in waste just the most classic way she answer was like. I'm not looking to speed things up at this point in my life. I'm looking to slow things down. And i was just like a pre tree where.

There's there though he's he's the guy that was dead. But i don't question. Barry didn't look bad this preseason. I watched i listened to the last game. he didn't. He missed a couple protections and that like he got the one big hit on a daniel came up the middle and offensive. Lineman is the most any starting align he gets real real soft after. I think we can all agree. Kenneth murray i love with marina. Can't you see what he does. Now is but our linebacker core our depth at linebacker is wrong and they can scheme to help people offensive line equally. Put in so many tight ends to help with a chip walked you. Yeah you know what i mean. You know what i mean. You know what i'm saying you know putting I if i if i had to choose also slater. I think he's going to be pretty crucial in. I'm gonna go lindsey. Because he's the quarterback of that offensive line. You sure you don't miss those protection. Have somebody pointing out and get people in the right place their debt. They're both very short alternates. Vip's them all. Yeah we need them all. Please thank you. Thank you for asking the question. Ds three seven eight move on now to keep dougie old. Who asked the question. Certified og g-go once more into the fray into the last good fight. I'll ever know live and die for this day. Live and die for this day. Another season comes our way and with it. A new opportunity for thirty two teams competing of the lombardi trophy. I dunno who will win. But i do know that the road to la all starts this week because nfl. Football is back. But i will say that. I have never been excited like i have been this year. Starting from the hiring of brandon staley. He makes me want to run the ball again one last time. Regardless of what happens this season. I am fully committed to the team because i am a damn masochist. Like every charger fan. So my question to you guys. What are some bold predictions. You have this season for the team and offer some players. And what place. Can we finish what we can collectively say. The season was the success. Even if we didn't win the super bowl now here's to a season where the injury bug doesn't exist. There are no hiccups in the fourth quarter donkeys. Not treating for a qb the raiders. Being worse off this year the team playing efficient football into the vision of this team hosting the lombardi trophy at suffice stadium over the tampa. Bay buccaneers got to be taken all right bold predictions. Okay doggy asking for them right out of the game. We haven't even had a game yet. I'm gonna on the back of and say like what would make successful season shirt for me. Yeah we don't win the super bowl. Everyone wants that when super bowl. Winning a playoff game is a very successful season. We won't win one playoff game. I'm going to be very happy. And i think will be much happier than we were the beginning of this year By bold prediction we make make it to the afc championship game. Nuns my bold prediction. I like it. I like it. I would say for me. My bold prediction is just an herb. Is going to break every sophomore record out there. i don't even know what those are either. But he's going to break them is going to break the growth from number one number one fantasy quarterback justin herbert. Ooh that is bold. I buy back it. A hundred percent supported all right. I like it all right kyle. Bold successfully season pick a choice. How does it become a successful season. I don't know it's like if i look from what we've had in the past. I guess winning a playoff game. But i don't know like if we win a game and lose in the second round like we did a couple of years ago didn't feel i got oils awesome. You know i think i guess. Afc championship like even further back. I wanna win the afc west if we can win the afc west and to that was a very successful seasons pool dot me by if you do that so actually technically win a playoff game. Technically i like it all right. Maybe and and any bold predictions we win the afc. What are down excellent there. You go okay doggy Let's move on now to blended surfer. Who asks the question. I leave it in not on scared gear bag up our my fellow water riders to and. Okay one question for you all of you. It's not about the judges anything related. Who's each of your guys.

"Keeping five. And i think we probably had the same five. Nothing's really changed since we did our early projections. I had them keeping their top. Four are kenneth. Murray kaiser white drew tranquil and nick neiman uneven has been really really good in the preseason had some pre ugliness tackles last night had an issue with some some change of direction and got beat for touchdown. Run at one point but led the team in tackles. I think in the preseason had a sack last night very very effective on special teams. He's a guy who has done everything in his power earn a roster spot and i think he sticks I think there might be some discussion. About keeping christianson over the person i'm keeping. Which is i'm on a nigga job the pronunciation but i think they they wind up keeping almond based on a quote the shared with me from vance daily. I don't know if you have that handy and you to read it but yeah yeah he said let's see you got to hear so so bog amiga was pushing to play yet last night. He got hurt. After three snaps against forty niners was taken out. He was pushing a play last night and staley told him that almond did enough in training camp to get a full evaluation and then he added one. Preseason game isn't going to make a difference in your evaluation. They also told them something along the lines of like we know how we feel about you and right. You're game isn't going to change that right. So i think his special teams value wins out And i think they they may be a little more upside him than they do and co christianson. And you need guys like a nigga to win these last roster spots guys who can contribute on special teams guys who are fighting in begging to get on the field with a spring day see joint guys who just scratch and claw and worked earn everything they get at every level. They play out. You want those guys on the back on the roster has they keep the guys in the middle of the roster looking over their shoulder And they become leaders eventually so i think they wind up keeping on nigga overcoat christianson so my five linebackers are murray white tranquil neiman. Who i was even more impressed with in the preseason. I thought i would be an almond Neaga yeah yeah. No i mean obviously murray tranquil white are rotating starter but to your point man. I mean he was just getting more and more impressive important wraps looking even more impressive as as the training camp was going along and he was just a tackling machine in the preseason and he's gonna be a big part of the special teams unit. This year he played special teams last night. He is a guy that will be a big time contributed on special teams. I mean while he's playing in the second half he all the The majority of the players don't look like they be along nickname in stood out as one of the best players on the field for the chargers. If not the entire field on both sides he was always active. He was a step ahead of everybody. Who was playing downhill. I know he had some missed tackles last night and he got a terrible call on that helmet-to-helmet contact Call but i mean he. He's just been totally impressive and he's going to be a special teams stalwart. I can't wait to see him as a special teams series. Going gonna prove that unit. I got the same guy as the last linebacker. the fifth one og amiga. I mean you read the quote. They basically said that they've always they've already got evaluation of who. He is as a player playing a third. Preseason game is gonna change that so to me that says that staley knows what they got into player and ugh is in. And that's our guy so It's a win win for us and for the chargers and so cold. Christianson has a possibility for a Practice squad spot a guy who played on a special teams last year for the chargers. But yeah i've got the same. Five kenneth murray tranquil kaiser white rookie nickname in an almond. Og bog amiga yet. I think it's worth pointing out that. We've seen kind of a change in rules. The top of that linebacker depth chart to seems like kaiser white has kind of leapfrogged drew tranquil as the primary starter. Opposite kenneth kenneth murray and a tranquil that of course allows tranquil tranquil rotate in will probably play a lot one nickel packages for the chargers and it allows him to jordan on special teams which is something. He's really really good at So i think it makes. It seem better all the way around. And that that ascension of a kaiser white his ability to take that role from tranquil. Who was i think he had the green dot last year for mistakenly got hurt. Who was a leader on. Defense to to take to make that ascension to take that role from end is huge because it speaks a lot to his work ethic and where he is now versus where he was with the previous coaching staff yet. Another point about how bad that previous coaching staff was. They couldn't figure out how to get something out of crazy white. No the reser will maybe resurrections too strong of a word the rebirth of not even the the emergency things. You much reemergence z. Resurrection of kaiser white but just the way that he's been playing and the way that we have all hoped that kaiser could be what we saw him his first year in the nfl and then to come into the system and just basically play his own game not have to think so much they just cut him loose and that's all he needed and now he's Ramped up his role in this Defense and i absolutely love it. It's been probably one of my favorite story. Storylines of this off. Season has been the emergence of your weight. So we've done Second level let's go on the outside. Let's talk about corners. And i've got them keeping five the first three or easy. Michael davis chris junior and then the rookie. Asante samuel junior after that. It's kind of tough and of course there's five corners and there's one caveat. The caveat is ryan smith currently on the cove in nineteen list. So he's not gonna count towards the fifty three so basically. They're the chargers are going to get an extra roster spot so once after after. It's happened on tuesday they can then reactivate ryan smith on the list. And put him on. I r which means he'll come back sometime during the season and can rejoin the team because he's been injured but he's also on the covert list so it it's not sneaky. But it's a way that they earned another extra roster spot with ryan smith so he you won't have to cut him and he won't have to go to or put them on i already. He's not going to count toward fifty three. So he's not part of my list last two unfortunately are just guys that what one of them earned it and the guy that earned it was tavon campbell. I thought that he obviously staley was praising him throughout camp he got the interception against the forty niners. A guy who's playing pretty good earned himself a fifth cornerback spot on this roster to replace ryan smith the other guy unfortunately got to be branded face on because there just isn't anybody else. He had a really really rough game again last night. he just does not look good I think that guys like john. Brennan come on hall made cases just not enough for his coaching staff. So i think they could be on the Practice eligible and they might think about bringing them back but for me. The five are michael davis. Chris harris junior asante samuel junior devan campbell and then reluctantly brennan face on and this is another group like offensive line. We talked about defensive line This is a group that they have got to get better at hopefully during cuts on tuesday. They can find somebody better than face on campbell to replace them at the at the back of this quarter..
"kenneth murray" Discussed on Bolts from the Blue
"Bouli who played some linebacker. Last year is played on the edge He stuck on the roster because of his ability on special teams. But this old staff couldn't decide whether they wanted him to play with his hand in the dirt or wanted him to be astana backer. So this is a whole. He's got experience both but now says a whole new system. It's going to be a whole new change again. He's going to be competing with rump for that edge for spot. Maybe he could stick as a fifth in this group if he can contribute on special teams and maybe they keep a guy like goulet because of the versatility where we'll talk with the linebackers a little bit knowing that goulet can rush the passer but also stand up. That's a guy that has some versatility that could make you know. Make the bottom of this fifty three roster contributed on special teams and then add some versatility and then in terms of Lemonier he joined the team last year. Playing two games and camp but he's way on the outside looking in maybe a practice spot available for him but other than that you got about four or five guys Looking to make the team. Yeah there are some interesting decisions that he made you know you mentioned new osceola guy who certainly has flashed the ability to make some plays As a as an edge rusher over the last couple of years he had a period last year before he got hurt where he was arguably one of the best defenders on the field for the chargers. Then he got hurt and he disappeared and seem like he got buried with the previous coaching staff. So he's a guy who went into camp thinking he had the inside track. But now you're starting to hear reports at a camp. The coaches really liked cuyler fakhro. They liked the fact that he can cover. Which is something that knows who was struggled with. They liked the fact that he can get after the quarterback. And that is something that is documented. He had ten sacks a couple years ago in green bay so they know you can get to the quarterback so he gives them some of that versatility that staley's looking for that is maybe going to give away their intentions on the field on the defense is out there. So it's looking. They've been splitting noah soon vacco. Have they been splitting first team reps so far in camp and they from what i've read. They both had their moments at times. But it seems like crow has shown up a little bit more consistently the knows who has most guys probably pretty much guaranteed to make the team wanna be the The secondary edge. Rusher wanna be number three But they're both probably gonna make the team. I think what starts getting really interesting as chris. Rump and amac boulay If you read about what's been happening in camp at bullies were making a lot of plays with the second team defense. But he's been making plays both as a run defender and as an edge rusher. There was an eleven hundred eleven. And i believe a goal line drill with the second team a couple couple of days ago where he basically single the shutdown. I believe it was a red zone series for the second team defense. He got off the edge stuff to run and then got a couple of sacks and battered to pass on. I think so. He's showing up more and more. And what i think is interesting as you mentioned his special teams abilities. A mecca. wuli is a guy who at least right now is running on first team punt and kick coverage teams so he's the guy who seems to be entrenched on special teams. Which would kind of make you think he's got that inside. Track over romped. Even though rump was a fourth round pick You've you're hearing good. Things he'll boasts has been saying. Nice things about rump. The coaches been talking about him but both has been calling the string bean because he's so skinny and they won't alley and he's a guy who noted when we did our draft study that while he has some upside he's a guy who he gets by on effort a lot and he slippery through the gaps. But he's not a guy who exhibits great technique as an edge rusher even though. His dad teaches defensive. Line there have been reports that rump. Actually have been working out with Khalil mack in the offseason trying to bring his game along. so i'm back kind of work ethic. i'm sure we'll help them out But i would think he would have to show that he can contribute on special teams to make the team this year So it'll be interesting to see what they do kind of what we talked about with the running backs last week you know. Are you going to keep the current year fifth round. Pick are you gonna keep fifth round. Pick from a couple of years ago. How does that draft pick compensation kind of figure figuring in terms of how you're evaluating these guys based on where and when they were picked and a bully boy was a draft. Pick to write but sixth round. Pick something so both. These guys former draft picks rump taken a little earlier. Obviously they think probably they probably a little bit more highly of them coming out of the draft but An opportunity for both guys to really contribute on special teams show. What they can do is edge rushers. Maybe they wind up keeping five. Maybe they go five defensive lineman in five ed rushers figure. They'll probably be somewhere in that nine to ten range with between those two groups so let's go ahead and talk about these linebacker. Yeah it's going to be interesting. A the bottom of that a group too. So let's talk about linebackers which again Another competition the bottom here. Most likely so for the linebackers we've got kenneth murray drew tranquil kaiser white rookie nick neiman cold christianson damon lloyd and amen bog amiga good job i got it nailed it og bog amiga now. I'd like him so. I had to learn his name so i like to watch the news so i remember his name. Yeah i think this is a group where i mean we know the first three guys are gonna make it and murray tranquil and white white somebody who I believe ronald hill tried to recruit to hit. When he was coming out of high school he tried to a safety so there is some history there and yes there have been. I think two or three times this off season were brandon's daily has specifically mentioned how much he likes. A kaiser whites well rounded skill. Set that he can run and he can hit. He can cover. He kind of does everything they look for. And i think they've been having him play a little bit of money and a little bit of star and to some some linebacker so he's getting some experienced playing all over the defense. He's a guy who you might even see play safety on occasion. If they're trying to confuse defenses he gives them a lot of flexibility. And there's been a lot of talking camp this year that murray and tranquil are becoming quote unquote complete linebackers So very high in linebacking group at least especially the top three i watched nick neiman After they drafted him he's the guy who isn't a great athlete but he gets the job done You know he's able to chase guys down to make plays. He seems to be pretty instinctive. I liked him quite a bit when i watched him And you mentioned. I'm not even going to pronounce his last name but ogden bog amiga bog. Amiga there we go He's a guy who they've been asking a lot of camp They seem to really like him. They've been throwing a lot at some of their younger players in camp this year and.
"kenneth murray" Discussed on Nickel Package
"I think they drafted nausea italy and a couple years ago. I want to say. and yes. So he is not he was not fantastic in gus. Bradley's defense playing the center fielder. I think in the brand new daily defense where he gets more support from darwin james. Playing more of those split safety coverages. I think that's gonna help him I also think like okay. you know. Michael davis very underrated. Chris harris complain the slot. We'll see what they get autumn. Asante samuel junior. I feel like good. It's not a deep group. But i think it makes sense like when i think back to like when i think to what we saw staley do. And just generally the fangio defenses. It makes sense for me. The concern is like when you start looking up front outside bosa. I get a little bit worried. Yep job joey bosa who. Somehow some way just turned twenty six like that. He's one of those guys that like just blows my mind i know. But that's such a great Great point about just kind like they're back and is that with the split safety stuff. The one good thing is guys aren't out an island as much as you may be in a seattle defense. I guess bradley runs. Which is something. We will talk about later. Spoilers but it's because it just by design you know just physics of having more is on soften guys can split over reads on everything and kind like help each other out more by help. Defense them putting guys on ireland's a that cover three kind defense does so. I'm actually just curious to see like what does what like worcester. Magellan's look during james look like in that defense like is he can be coming up on stuff like is he. I just curious like how they're going to unlock him. Because i do think staley's very good coach so i i'm curious how they uses that swiss army knife. 'cause you can kind of see. When coaches give versatile players you can see kind of who are the real coaches. Are i guess. Go to put it. Yancey spags spags retire. Matthew as opposed suspect. Somebody else your tar. Matthew was somebody else when houston you know like you can kind of see the differences of like how a coach really uses a guy like that so i wanna see how uses him as blitzer ranch. You some kind of fun little blitzes situation away like you know I wanna see. Just do one off once. They're of really annoying. Richest like it's a second and five also may just bring a linebacker and it's just like random and i think that randomness kind of off. Oh sorry ruin messes with is i. Yeah i think what you just described. I think like again. Like i just kind of moving to the kenneth murray i think is someone who will also benefit from this change. In coach you can get downhill more yet as a to you as much and coverage. I don't think as much time as the rams again. I'm looking at the debt chart right now and i'm like who can field. You know like their deficits. Like who like mike man. I'm trying to rack my brain like there's gonna be a tweet about that guy. No they need a guy can't murray to kind of like a step up a little bit. They're hoping that he can kind of be like a run. Find ball get ball. Guy like at devon white devon white type where it's just be an athlete as opposed to reading stuff out so you know we'll see maybe does it. Yeah i think that's a great point may begin since he can become unlocked when there's less on him having to be two ways as much but i mean they need help upfront. It's kinda as bosa and the boasts. Ats i mean you hope jerry tillery hope celery. Kinda does a little more like the lot. Qb hits last three sack so But you're hoping that like a guy like that steps up they're going to need to. I do trust the coaching staff. We just is question marks. You have to be Glass half full. If you do think it's gonna be something i mean. This is a defense finished. Twenty six and dvr against john last year. Which again missing guys right. But now you're asking. Jerry tillery lindvall joseph and justin jones to get you know it's like oh gavin athlete. We we talked a lot had coach vasan and talked a little bit about how those defenses play the run which is a very fun thing to think about. But then all of a sudden when you're when you're looking at some of these these personnel in your you do have to also execute that right so like we'll see i. I just think this to me christian covington. That's kind of a good piece upper end.
"kenneth murray" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"When we get to training camp which. La team is more interesting. That's a great question. I i'm on the matthew stafford bandwagon. Dan like i. I think i think the general public has a much like much lower opinion of him than people in football. Have i think if you talked to scouts. If you talked to coaches they think this guy is outstanding. Like and the idea of putting him in. Sean mcveigh's offense and we can argue about like the way the rams are set up and how they don't have any first round picks until five years from now and all that different stuff. But the idea of sean mcveigh with matthew stafford. Right now today. Throwing the robert woods and cooper cup and having camakers behind him and you know on the other side defense with aaron donald jalen ramsey. I think it's fascinating. And so like i wouldn't be surprised if matthew staffers the mvp leak. And so i give the slight edge the rams but like what brandon staley's walking into with the chargers is awfully interesting too so i think you know the first year of that stadium actually able to fans in it and all the rest of it and the super bowl being there now. I think both those teams have a chance to be really really good. The rams a super bowl contender. I don't think the charge quite there yet. But there's talent on that roster. Dan i mean you know. It's not just justin herbert. If you know mike williams and and joey bosa and derwin. James and and young guys like kenneth murray like that's a. It's a really good team. And so i'd say rams legitimate super bowl aspirations chargers i think i think the chargers maybe more of a pain in the ass for the chiefs than anyone else in their division. Put it that way open invitation. Join us on a meet. Friday their number two. I'm gonna try to make it down there. i think it's about to our drought. Maybe when i'm on my way to new york in the fall. How are you guys from the train station. Pretty close pretty close. We can pick you up in fact you can. Even you can even make a request to what you want on the menu.

I don't know if it says more about my life or your show but this is one of my favorite parts of the day for sure My question was about While heard you. Bring up shawn watson. And i'm i'm a big in bronco fan. My question was Have you heard anything. So i saw something about He was talking to I forgot who it was kareem jackson or ended the interview with him and said he wanted to denver if he ended up in denver. Dc denver's a super bowl contender. It depends on what you have to give up. Thank you to dakota. And i don't know how long he's going to have to sit out. I know that adam schefter floated this out here. He wasn't reporting this. He just said keep an eye on this and he brought up the philadelphia. Eagles will the eagles do have some draft picks that they can traded the texans. They could trade. Jalen hurts to the texans that to me could make a lot of sense. The question is when do you get him. What are you give up. And if you're the texans it's not like you can play him and his value goes up you just his value goes up when you know he's available and right now you don't know when he's going to be available if he's going to be available piece on the commissioner's exempt list. If this case is never resolved here in the next six months mike. I haven't heard any updates on any of this with any kind of settlement here. But he's still going to be punished by the nfl. And if you're trading for him what would you want to do. I'm sure into shawn watson is on record saying he'd be intrigued by denver. I he'd be intrigued to go anywhere right now. He's got to get away from the texans and vice versa. mclovin. I have a completely nonsensical against the grain. Reason why i think the broncos are sleeping giant okay then we should take a break because we have to collect our breaths here. We we got let america plan their day. I mean colorado springs right.

"kenneth murray" Discussed on WGR 550 Sports Radio
"I think that that is You just kind of like, you know, a bunch of media scuttlebutt, You know, it gets the clicks on Denver and Carolina in Detroit. That is sort of the sweet spot for Justin Fields. And Denver in particular, although they did just trade for Teddy Bridgewater. I think that we know by now that Teddy Bridgewater is not any kind of a long term solution. Um, that he can. He's you know, purely no pun intended a bridge quarterback, and they he's only under contract for one year and they know that Drew lock is not. The guy drew locked is not factor into this decision at all. And then, But I think I think that the most interesting possibility would be here. Denver trading from number nine to number seven With Detroit. Detroit needs draft picks like they full scale rebuilt. They they've got nothing on their team, and they've got some decent offensive lineman like that's about it. On then the rookie Jeff Oh, Kuda, the corner who really didn't have very good rookie season, so they moved back from 7 to 9 Broncos jump over the Panthers, who are, you know somewhat of a threat to take a quarterback? Broncos. Take Justin Fields at seven. At number nine. The Broncos pick up an extra pick or two. Or the lines pick up an extra picture, too, for their rebuild they maybe take Trey Lance. Number nine T jump start their rebuild, but they get those extra picks and the Broncos get their quarterback of the future. Where does the draft starved Browning? I've thought it starts me. I certainly the 49 is going to take a quarterback and whether it's Justin Fields. Trey Lance Mack Jones. You know, Two of those three guys are still gonna be on the board when Atlanta comes up at number four. And for us, I think number four Atlanta's were the draft starts entirely. What does Atlanta do? At number four. I think that the draft there starts at number three. Especially since I know you guys been doing the show. I don't know how close you guys have been, like paying attention to Twitter and stuff and the betting markets or are, you know and there? I don't want to say that they're reliable, okay? Um, but but it does create intrigue and all of a sudden, Trey Lance is the betting favorite and the prop draft market too. Are the product that market to be to be the third overall pick right now, as we speak, Trey Lance jumped Mack Jones to be the favorite at the third overall pick. Now, by the time that the draft actually starts tonight, it'll probably Mack Jones back is that as the favor that's how these things kind of go, you know, but but I would say the draft starts at number three. As we sit here speaking and and then so whoever I mean. Hey, if the 40 Niners, throw us a curveball and take Trey Lance Then I mean, then things start to get real real interesting. But let's let's say that they just take Mack Jones like we were probably all still expect. Despite this movement in the betting markets, I think I'll pits goes number four to Atlanta. And then I think the draft starts to get real interesting because for a while there, Jamaar Chase was the heavy favorite to be the number five overall pick to Cincinnati. But lately your genial Jeremiah had Penny shul in him at Number five in his mark. Peter Schrager had Penny School number five in his mark Mike Lombardi. Predicted that the Bangles would take Penny school and then Jamaar chase false. The Dolphins at number six. And then and then we're into that little, you know, three team window off guys that could take Justin fields. I mean, we've got a lot of room for intrigue here. Still, I don't think that anything is really set in stone after one and two. How many trades do you anticipate? Both in the top 10 and then maybe in the bottom 10 of the first round man, It's just so hard to say, I I like the idea of the Broncos Lions trade right? And then after that, Um, I just I don't know. I really don't know. I think maybe the Chargers If Penny School gets past the Bangles, then maybe the Chargers might move up toe to try to get petty soul you know, paying school protected Justin Herbert Herbert's blindsided Oregon and I'm and the charges are desperate for left tackle help. But I don't know how many trades. They're working their way Fewer trades, and I thought there would be last year. What do we go like 12 or 13, or 14 picks without their even being a single trade last year? If I recall correctly think there was only four total trades in round one, But here's an interesting thing, at least for bills fans in the last three drafts heaven. There have been an average of four trades between picks 20 and 32. It's either guys climbing up a little bit or people trying to trade back in from round two. So could be some action down there at the bottom half of the round. Maybe even more so than the top depending on how that quarterback tear falls at the top of the draft, Evan, thanks very much for the time. Enjoy the draft tonight, and we appreciate the insight. All right. Thanks. So much for having me guys all right, that is the founder and writer from establish the run dot com You can get his info there. He's got his final mock draft up right now at Establish the run dot com So yeah, it's going to be interesting, and there's some news floating around. There's talk that the Chargers may be looking to move up from there spotted 13 to try to get one of the top two tackles. In the draft. They were initially thought to be in a good position of 13 to get somebody like Rashaun Slater, assuming that Panay Sewell is off the board. Now there is talk that they prefer Sewell over Slater and realize they have to move up to go get him. So there's talk of the Chargers, perhaps moving up the board. Their GM Tom Telesco moved up the board last year. As a matter of fact, he moved up from The second round up to the bottom of the first round to take the linebacker Kenneth Murray made a trade up the board back into round one to nab They're middle linebacker of the future on he's expected to start this coming season. There's this from Adam Schefter. He said that an NFL officials said Caleb Farley tested positive for Cove it twice and therefore will not be allowed to watch the draft with friends and family for the safety of all we wish him the best of luck. Um There was a report earlier in the day that he re tested today and was negative for covert. But the NFL is not taking any chances. His agent Drew Rosenhaus, All that very encouraging. He was claiming he could watch the draft with friends and family. NFL official is arguing otherwise. So that's going to be very interesting. I don't know if they have cameras in his home tonight. He's not going to be at the draft. We know that. Um and I don't know if you saw the set up, Steve For the draft include prospects attending the draft. I have not seen it so typically, in the past, we would see them in the green room. They'd be sitting at around banquet table with family members there, Agent stuff like that. It's kind of like a banquet setting big round tables in a broom. Just Yeah, it's different now. Nothing I'm doing. They've got like a V I P room. Couch for the player and their family members. And whoever else is in the entourage for each of the players because there's only 13 of them that are gonna be on site tonight. They went all out so And they tweeted it out. Brian McCarthy ahead of NFL PR tweeted it out earlier today, and I mean, you want to talk plush Steve We're like talking velvet couches, and that is not by mistake. This is not by mistake. Steven are MST viewers or getting a look at it. Now. This is not by mistake. This is being put out on social media by the NFL to let draft prospects of the future. No, Hey, It's gonna mean you want to come to the draft, right? We'll set you up. You're gonna look good. Have a bottle of champagne on ice for all we know, but I mean, that's for a temporary set up. That's pretty posh..
What Is the Patriots' Plan at Tight End?
"Second question i had foil is regarded. These tight ends that they drafted in the third round as a fan of them. Going after two tight ends. Because i just. I was hoping that it was going to go back to the kind of offense like nam doesn't gronk were your and it. Obviously that isn't happening but it's almost it's almost like a redshirt of the two of them. This year. I think they have one. Catch combines the between the two of them was going into the season with them. So limited on getting offensive snaps. Was that planned or was it more based on their health or was it more based on that this belgian just wasn't seeing what he thought he was gonna see leading up to the draft. Stop yeah i well i think number one you earn and sort of what you see on the practice field. You know ossie was okay to start camp I would see either of them. Blue anybody away. And i know there have been some injury issues but i don't really think that's been much of a factor i mean you know you look at back in two thousand and ten when they had gronkowski and hernandez people kind of forget that hernandez was the one who hit i him he was he was a decent part of the offense from the gecko that year. We're gronk was really more a blocking tight. End do a little bit. By the end of the season he was catching touchdown passes and becoming more of a force and so guys have their own path. And it's all brian what they show how they get the offense how they execute stuff like that from people that i've talked to around the team. It just with devon. Aw siasi good for about two weeks and then tom for every nfl rookie. There comes a point in time when they realized the. Nfl is hard that these guys are good. That the coaches are tough that being a pro and having to wake up every day and do a day after day and sore body and all this stuff like it sets in like it's a profession and some guys look at it like You know. I'm not having a whole lot of fun anymore. This was like when you know when. I went to rutgers and i was playing on the baseball team. You know my second. I could come back from his hand surgery. I had but i really wasn't having that much fun anymore in kind of wanted to be more of a college kid so alice sort of left the game but these guys they realize it's it's a profession in some of them rise. Some of them love it some of them rise in say okay. I like this i can. I can meet the challenge and push through and some guy sort of shrink in from people i've talked to. That's been siasi. Here has not been a lot of mental toughness behind the scenes. I think you can see some of it in his play on the field in terms of just as body language when he's on the field donkey i think he has more of a chance. I think the consensus. And i know. Albert brewers working on something about ballot. Check in his drafting. And i think he's gonna talk about these titans because we've been chit chat and back and forth The past couple of days but about how like everybody says like dalton kimes overdrafted Qian's been almost like a big puppy where he's kind of all over the place and you think he wants to be there. I think he loves football. So i don't really worry about him. It's when he's going to get it. And i think once he gets it and he gets his role and they create more of like a crash jensen type of role for him. I think he's gonna flourish. And i think he's going to be a weapon for this team. Aussie i don't know what kind of future i don't know if he has any future here to tell you the truth and i think the patriots Fell into a trap. And i don't know if this was by design or just bella check being bell check. But what tom we're not idiots they certainly are idiots. We all knew the deal at receiver in tight end and so for belgium to come out of this draft trade out of the first round. Give up like a kenneth murray or whatever you wanted to do there and then take three defensive guys would your first three picks like when there were tight ends. Probably that you had rated higher there that you just passed on and all of a sudden you're scrambling it looked like to get off siasi and dalton keen like. That's problematic and to me. It illustrates sort of the personnel problems that they've had last four five
