"Only problem is mahomes is now putting up the numbers he put up last year but he's basically the same guy I feel like we've all collectively forgotten the Beatles movie yesterday right. We all woke up and I feel like I'm the only person who remember how good Patrick Mahomes. We're not talking about Lamar Jackson. And I've said this before. I liked more but if you said next ten years who's the quarterback unlike mahomes gonNA run the League. Yeah he's an unbelievable all time transformational talent without a doubt and for all of the things. Lamar dose the hardest thing to defend in the history of the. NFL is a perfectly nobody thrown. Pass Patrick mahomes perfect passes. And that's why I think okay. Justin Reed is a really good player. Back there for the Texans. They're actually pretty good against the deep ball all but I think they just have too many weapons in Kansas City. Then Travis Kelsey mobile to pick them apart I. I don't see this as as anything more than maybe a temple in game. All right finally seahawks packers. There's Seattle I it's it's you know. Listen if you listen to this show I think in my lifetime. Russell Wilson's the most underappreciated college or pro player. I've ever pursing people forget. He went to conservative. Wisconsin completed seventy three percent of his throws thirty three touchdowns four picks but because he was an inch too short. Were not gonNA take him people. I think Lamar was under drafted literally. All Russell. Wilson did in college. At the most conservative offense was create a firework show. I give Seattle kind of a shot cause of Russell. Du In this game. I actually think that the Seltzer when very very close now the packers. I synchro better team than we give them credit for I saw some stats through the worst one of the worst thirteen and three teams in history. They are that. That's a nice problem to have. I'd rather be one of the worst thirteen and three teams history. Then one of the best nine seventeen so listen. The packers done a nice team building jobs area. Smith's one of the best players on defensive get he was at a really good price. Really really good price. Could you imagine if he's still on the Ravens. How good that team would be my guy but he leads the NFL unpressurised right now and I think that they've done a nice job again? Building around it really expensive quarterback and figuring agreeing on what they needed to do in free agency is basically as good as you can do when you're paying quarterback that much however I think Russell Wilson is one of the two three three best quarterbacks football I'd actually say it's right. Now it's Lamar Wilson and Mahal built and told me last week he said it's the best football player in the world. Yep It's not crazy and he can make plays and now decay metcalf breaking the rookie record for for receiving yards last week. I mean do you can make a good example but smart teams do the dump teams. Don't they looked at Deakin. Mecca of what can you do. Not What can't you do okay. Couldn't run incredible routes. Three cone was down. It couldn't change direction. Well what can he do. He can run really fast and catch passes passes score touchdowns and that the didn't over think it now. They've got a connection there. I don't you know. Obviously they're running games now. needs to be marshawn lynch knock wannabes Brockovich. The Guy He replaced were injured. But I think this comes down to the last. You should not have sustainable close games and win. That's not supposed to happen. You're supposed to go to fifty fifty or whatever that's right but the seahawks have made it work. They understand how to play and close games. I think they win this game. They're almost like the BIZARRO chargers. Right everything comes down to the end but instead of the chargers who screw it up the seahawks make it work. I liked him closeness. Kevin Clark the ringer. You just terrific work. You're just still thirty thirty three years old. What kind of futures that crazy it's unfair? He's our Lamar. He's just got ten twelve years of nothing but great articles The Ringer Kevin Clarke go. What's your what's your twitter handle by Kevin Clark all right So again very clever. It's great seeing you on all your success. Happy Marriage Bridge. Good luck going forward.

"At the Eric well, well victory party, and please join us, we'll be there. I David type of the overwork Twitter, joke of the week where we celebrate a gag that was so obvious that all of media Twitter made it at exactly the same time asked listeners to police in their nominees to at the press box pod, or they will be gratefully received David. Here's a tweet from the publication the hill Broadway play about Hillary Clinton is closing early due to low ticket sales. This is the this is the the rather improbable Broadway play. Yeah. It was an overworked Twitter joke to right? They should've advertised in Wisconsin. Thanks to Matthew Zetland for that one that joke will never end. Do we I, I think that's going to take us best twenty twenty? Remember when Donald Trump misspelled prince of Wales? On Twitter, the other day. Wales like the oceanic mammal. Yeah, it was a terrible terrible terrible. But extremely widespread overworked Twitter joked to say, do you think at the real Donald Trump type that on porpoise? I again I do not. I'm not endorsing it, but it was out there, thanks to Augie Hayes rate, and David, we got tons of stuff from the Toronto Raptors victory celebration coup Leonard and pals won the NBA title last week and celebrated this week with a parade through the streets of Toronto Dave Bullhorn. Avid listener notes that it was an word Twitter. Joked to write board, man gets parade. Not not paid Ord, man gets parade. And by the way, that was used by the ringer account, and we believe in intellectual honesty, here at the press box. And we behold, we hold ourselves to account and over. We're Twitter jokes just like anyone else and not babble daddy's not getting away with anything here. Anyway. Thanks today for that one. And finally, this one came from the ringers own Donnie Kwok, one of the subplots, the NBA finals was that guard Jeremy Lin wanna ring with the raptors despite playing in only one game in the NBA finals and not taking a single shot. So played in one game at garbage time did not take a shot, but isn't Germany Lynn, is an NBA champion as Donnie notes. It was an overworked Twitter joke to write for all the years of Asians. Having to do all the work in a group project. No one should be giving Jeremy Lin craft for becoming an invasion. All right. David time for the notebook dumb. This week Donald Trump kicked off his reelection campaign in Orlando Florida, with some rhetoric like this want to make clear to the media. We have the cleanest and sharpest crystal clean. You've heard me say went crystal clean, air and water anywhere on earth. If we have about three or four empty seats, the fake news. We'll say headlines you didn't fill up the arena. Do you notice there when he was talking about the quality of the air, the for he said, we have the sharpest air, he started to say that? Go ahead to back off that adjutant. So we need to decide David, if this move was thirsty or brilliant or possibly both. Because as Donald Trump was reading to kick off his campaign in Orlando. The Orlando Sentinel, a paper near and dear to the heart of the ringers very own Kevin Clarke decided to file its presidential endorsement or non endorsement, the headline was our Orlando Sentinel, endorsement for president twenty twenty not Donald Trump. The paper wrote some raiders are wonder how we could possibly eliminate a candidate so far before an election. And before knowing the identity of his opponent, because there's no point to pretending we would ever recommend that readers vote for Trump after two and a half years, we've seen enough. So the opinions editor of the Orlando Sentinel..

"Certainly we don't know that this specific thing that cell phone breaks NFL team meetings. That study obviously has been on that improvement because something has been proven doesn't mean it won't be affective the Christmas point, this is a little chip Kelly ask where you're gonna show everybody. How innovative you are? And how are you going to change league? And how the ideas that you bring in our so revolutionary that nobody's gonna ever catch up with. I don't think it's as extreme as chip Kelly was, but if you do think, it's a good idea. Why shared with anybody to me the value in ideas are to give you a competitive edge? So the second you start putting it out there. I think then it becomes an issue. And I'd say the other part of this. Once you promise people, something it's hard to go back and till you've been through an NFL schedule. As a head coach, you may not want to build in those twenty minute breaks every single time. There's times where you may have to thirty minutes or forty minutes. And it's just it's just the way it is. I'm not saying it's the peak of efficiency. But when you promise it, it's harder to take is no environment. Like an NFL locker you bring up a how do I get them corral back in because there is a lot of horse play in an NFL locker. I'm every crazy game every invention. Everything. I mean, if you give a guy a break, they will be going man, we can go play three hands cards like we can go like this types of things these guys do. So sometimes I think the people Google working with is not the case. Working with. A young coach. You're you're the one that gets sent. Now he wanted to do was a head coach with young coach. You gotta go into lock guys. Oh, it's it's it's painful at times getting back in the room. We're all in namrd by the next new young bright wide coach in the NFL. And whatever ideas are ideal that come along with him. I think we we loved would Sean McVeigh did last year. And so it almost as if whatever the next new guy has come oh that's going to be the new shiny thing. And it's most likely gonna work, and there's seemingly there's this more open policy to talk about it. When you see Sean McVay talk. We're gonna open the offense. We're gonna do this. Maybe that's laid down the groundwork for. All his experience has been basically in pro football. He's been born and raised in pro football raised on NFL sideline raising NFL locker room and the things that he's doing. They're not new coaches out there doing most of the stuff. He's learned in the league since he's been in the league. Now, he put a different spin on it. But Cal Shanahan another one of those up and coming on guy. He do what is dad a lot of the same stuff. That is dad did. So this is not something that someone is done. So Sean McVeigh younger than him. There are new fresh spins on old things. So that's what Sean McVay and what I've seen with him more in Los Angeles compared to what people think just because he's young every idea that he has is not a new one, and it should be noted. Kevin Clarke wrote in the Wall Street Journal in two thousand fifteen that Jim Thome Soule and his first year with the Niners. I know that didn't go. Well, he did the exact same thing. They had it was cell phone breaks. It just wasn't a big story because. Maybe he's not as wasn't as interesting. It's clip Kingsbury. There wasn't Cuyler Murray's discussion around the cardinals this year, the Jin. My overarching theme of this is innovation can work and new I just because it's the way it's always been done. Doesn't mean. It's the right way. Now having to deal with people that are, but it's the way I've always done it. And it's the way I'm comfortable that is a real thing. And that is a real hurdle to get over, and whether or not there is going to be a perceived arrogance of, hey, I'm the new guy who's got fired from tech..

"The Cleveland Browns, adding Odell Beckham junior to the team seemed like a reasonable response ban are pal. Kevin Clarke from the ringer tweeted that this trade events is a clear difference in philosophy. The Browns have figured out that having good players as good while the giants think having good players as bad. We will see who is right. We hit you. What do you think? Well, I blame I blame Bill Belichick for all of this IBM. It it feels like there was so many years in which the patriots were trading a person you'd heard of for a set of draft picks that didn't seem that high. And I think that kind of like rubbed off on the Dave settlements of the world who like we're just like the kind of popped into believing that like you trade someone for draft picks. You get to win the trade. It's like, no, they always say that Bill Bella check when the trade. So why didn't I get the win the tread? Well, this is running up to different Bella truck, plots fees. Here's there's also the philosophy of signing. For instance. Randy moss, the wide receiver who is going to be in the hall of fame is currently in the hall of fame was going to be in the hall of fame when the patriots got him, but is considered a prima Donna or a head case or annoying and Clark Kevin Clarke wrote this whole piece Stephan about how sort of like what? What Ben was saying that teams for whatever reason now are not appreciating good players enough. And that they think they're smart enough that they can you know, scheme their way to success without having great players. They think great players who too expensive. You know? I don't know what the rationale is. But I think the Oto vaccum trade, and the Tonio Brown trade are both evidence of, you know, whether you want to call it hubris, whatever you wanna call it of teams being like, we're gonna move on from these talented players, and are like brilliant. Organizational philosophy is going to lead us to success. I'm telling Brown trade is is a little bit murkier because he did want to renegotiate a contract. You didn't want a lot more money, but the Beckham on obviously makes no fucking sense on any level as Kevin Clark and others wrote. But we also note that in both cases, the Brown trade and the Beckham trade. What binds them together is that these trades made. Absolutely, no financial sense for these teams the NFL has salary cap..

"Whether that is trading up in the draft for a quarterback or whether that is overpaying someone in free agency. You are so confident that this is the one guy that other teams then take advantage of you. And you generally don't want to be that team. But the third and final thing is that bad spending decisions don't magically correct themselves while yes, the cap is largely an allusion handing out bad contracts can still impact your ability to put together a winning roster. When you look at the Malcolm Smith deal specifically. Yes, he's now restructured it, it's basically a one year deal. But he's still got two years of effectively top end the top and money for a linebacker that we didn't need to pay. If everyone else if the Niners knew what everyone else knew, which it wasn't very good. Right. And when you look at good teams, they get value from their signings. And this is why rookie deals was so valuable, but this is alternately why getting production beyond the players contract is super important. Kevin Clarke had a great story on his podcasts on the ringer. Earlier this week, and he was talking to a personnel man in the NFL, and he said that you effectively have the salary cap and the salary cap is one hundred and eighty five hundred million dollars. Whatever the hell sat right jumps up ten million dollars a year. But you affected we want to sign players that make it seem like your team is playing at a two hundred and fifty million dollar cap. And you do that when players outperform the salaries, you give them, and so if you give out a bunch of twenty thirty forty million dollar deals, the likelihood of a player outperforming that slim to none, right? It's just it's it's tough when you're paying players what they're worth, right? And it sounds crappy. But that's kind of like from a team perspective and looking at through that lens, right? You're trying to build the best possible team that you can build within those restrictions. You need to get access value from players, especially I think when you have your quarterback. I mean there I think you look at Jimmy garoppolo's contract right now going forward for the rest of is probably the best example of the foreigners have currently of going. They're hopefully going to get access value from that deal. Right. He's going to have cap hits that put him at best in the middle of the pack among quarterbacks salaries every year, and he's a player that we expect to perform much higher than that. And that is where you really get that value because then you're getting a player. That's that's giving you more than you're giving him, and you can then devote those resources that excess that you get to other players to be able to sign them in the more often you can do that the better off you're going to be. So those are the Prior's those are the things that we think are important when it comes to roster building. These are the things that good teams do by and large in order to win in football. So now, let's take a look at the contracts and the and the decisions the team has made over the last couple of days and put them through this lens and figure out whether or not they are good deals is what you can understand. Why the hell we've been ranting and raving for the last two days, and I let's get to the first contract that we handed out we'll the wrath of Kwan. I love dude. I love it. I've already I've got to the title of the podcast is going to be pretty dope as well. It's going to be probably quantity million. I mean, the pun game is strong. That's maybe the best part of this signing quantity million is up there. Quantified their love..

"I'm Doug Gottlieb in for Dan and the danettes on the Dan Patrick show. Kevin Clarke works for the ring recovers the National Football League. He doesn't amazing job. And I think there's a lot of fascinating. Parts of the league to discuss including the Joe flacco trade, which took place two days ago. We'll get to Kevin in second your reaction to the Joe flacco trade was what what was John Elway supposed to do. He got ripped by everybody. What's he supposed to do? He's got a defensive that. Can they can get into the playoffs? If you draft a quarterback. None of those guys are ready for the next three years. What's he supposed to do? I actually completely agree though. I would love to sit here and go like do do the do the made up debate thing. Yeah. People wanna do that where they wanna go like, well, why didn't you like everybody's doing it? Right. It's the Kirk cousins thing in Minnesota last year. Well, did we want to pay him eighty four million dollars? Like, no. But the jets offered ninety. Right. And we topped out with case keenum. He's a backup quarterback who else is eight AJ McCarron was on the market. Like, right. The only the free agent market is limited. Everybody's just killing Elway. What's he supposed to lose again with with with a rookie? And if you look at at at flat goes contract, if you think about it what they're going to likely do is restructure is deal. So he's making, you know, in the fifteen million dollar range, maybe seventy million dollars, whatever which means you can draft a guy in developing, and you can fix the offensive line and some of the other holes within the roster. He got a really talented rookie wide receiver a really talented rookie running back. You still have some good pieces on deepens. This allows you to to build a team. Like, look, you're not there's not a Pat Mahomes out there in the draft to go get and even Pat Mahomes got city year. Right. You're not going to be better than the chargers who have a better roster top to bottom and still have Philip rivers. So you gotta do the best with what you can with the market Miller. You got Nick you you need to take advantage of these guys Marshall you and I are in. Complete agreement. I don't love stunned. I don't love it. But I understand that. You know that media what everybody killed it. All right. Let me ask. Let me ask. Kevin Clark who covers the NFL for the ringer. Does a great job. Kevin. Did you kill the flacco trade? Yeah. We're gonna do the debate thing. But I promise plenty debate thing. Okay. Okay. No, I think that Joe flacco you talk a little bit about case keenum as backup quarterback. I just don't think that adding Joe flacco makes winning better on offense. I think that there's two wait team. You can either go with the cheap quarterback and build a structure around him. And he's gotta be at least pretty good. And where you get the guy who's making eighteen or more million dollars. And then you hope that he can basically with his talent make up for the money. You're losing a cap. I Joe flacco was probably the worst of both worlds and so much these make eighteen this year with your instructors are fifteen and you're still not going to be able to go out and get a twenty, you know. Big free agent with that that yet cat Mike somebody who'd be worth ten fifteen twenty million dollars a year. I think I would have just roll the dice with case keenum. I understand that the cap numbers might end up being restructure, obviously. That's not dead money slackers contract after next year. But I think they're generally I would have just kept a fourth round pick and just tried to build an infrastructure around case keenum 'cause I don't see a huge difference. Those two guys except I think he gives us a Bill Plachy. But what about flack owes postseason on? Oh, he hasn't been in the postseason. But nobody's postseason numbers or tremendous. He's a veteran Kenny if they're able to get there. They can really take advantage of this. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I think the way to go with that. And we don't know what banjo is I think the world of a couple of those guys that you mentioned von Miller, you mentioned I think those are two at one point they had to it's out for pressurizing the NFL last year they were getting after the quarterback. I I don't put a lot of stock into close season numbers. And it's like myself step yesterday. Tom Brady's throwing four yards in his last sixteen games at all. But four quarterbacks in history have in a single season. One hundred fifteen playoff games. He's thrown for fifty two hundred yards. Okay. And so yeah, I put stock in that with flacco. I just I understand them for miracles twenty twelve twenty thirteen run. I understand that. I don't I don't see that. Now. The greatest indictment Bill is that, you know, Lamar Jackson have one of the worst playoff games from whoever seem against the chargers. And and they didn't really think about, you know, going wholesale factor. Flacco. I mean, let's be honest. It's a little bit more than a little bit unfair. Right. Like, they couldn't pull the the couldn't pull out the they felt like they couldn't pull out the rug from Lamar Jackson, and they honestly they should have played Joe flacco they had no chance to win that game with Lamar Jackson, even though he made at a couple miracle plays kind of lay kind of Tim tebow. Tim tebow liar. So let's get to the Lamar Jackson this discussion. Like, look that style has a short shelf life. He's run the football more than anybody who's ever played the position and Cam Newton's built like a Greek God and his body has broken down. What what what level of confidence? Do you have that? Now people have off season to adjust to what the ravens have done that. Lamar Jackson will even be as good as he was in his second season. I was amazed guys when you look at the running numbers civil Lamar Jackson, the only comparable offenses ran the quarterback that much. We're in the seventies. I'm talking like nineteen seventy-two lambs or something. And so it is we haven't seen it. And I think I wonder if the chargers putting all those defensive backs out there. I wonder if that's been shaved away defensive play him next year. And on the other hand, they make great role in the office coordinator, Greg Roman designed, you know, one of the best running offenses in recent memory grow couple of years ago with calico panic. I think it's gonna be a little bit of Columbine column. I think that there will be who were just to Lamar. But I think Lamarque and Greg Roman gesture defense is I think that. You only way that Lamar Jackson take a huge step back is if he doesn't sell passer, and I don't see that happen. I think he only get better as a path is just feeling to be a passer Tom Brady. No. But I think he can get better as a passer. No, we can run. I understand his injury. Eventually Cam Newton thing. But I do think he will be a pretty good quarterback in twenty nine hundred. But but here's the thing. What's lost in? It's not just that. He runs a lot. He's crazy. Inaccurate right. Like, those some some of those short intermediate throws like he's just he's always been inaccurate at Louisville us an accurate playing for a good quarterback coach and with the ravens at times inaccurate. And like look at inaccuracy is something that has been really hard to solve for many in NFL quarterback, regardless of whether they're a runner or a thrower. Perfect parallel would be like a Brady Quinn. Like, look, you can tell me that he's not too muscled up. But whatever was he was inaccurate. And you just can't fix that. Yeah. I mean, there's examples. Matt Ryan got better from college pro-, you know, I talked to I remember talking the rich Gannon but a couple of weeks ago he was complaining about the Josh Allen criticism. And he was saying basically that once you get into being a veteran in the NFL the entire field is open to you. And you're when you're a rookie, basically, maybe not even half if you because you're visiting is just not there. And so it's about being able to hang on enough to become a veteran, and then be able to look at the entire field people like frequented necessarily get there. They didn't get to be thirty one or thirty two. Nothing. Lamar Jackson wait around every thirty one or thirty two. But I am saying that I do think I don't know which percents gets better. But vision can get better. And with that. I think some of the more awkward passes will we'll go away. All right. Kevin you mentioned Colin Kaepernick, Doug. And our having a real debate about the issue. How do you feel? What's your reaction to the reports that he turned down twenty million to play? He wanted twenty. He wanted twenty million to play in the that's right. Yeah. Which is about what nineteen point five nine hours more than everybody else. Ready more. Yes. I understand it from Colin Kaepernick perspective. And here's why. He played for ASU would make them a lot more than twenty million dollars that that is not necessarily true of the NFL with the NFL is not going to renegotiate its television deal based on ratings. They get it's contacting plays in one game. It'd be huge ratings for derating, spike, and all that you're looking at fourteen fifteen billion dollar industry. A after the sensually start out. It would change the entire narrative around them if they had column, Catherine it would it would bring in probably more sponsors. It would it would be such a boon to them that the only way thanks for calling Catholic to be paid federally to ask for the moon because he would be absolute star that we who's the starring out Christian hackenberg. So so now the replaced, but but but there is a there is a point where you ask for an amount of money, which is so much that the phone gets hung up. Right. And and he does look I agree with you. But I also think. That this is part of what NFL people have said, which is like when we've been able to even discuss bringing in Colin Kaepernick he's wanted starting quarterback money, and we don't view him as the starter. Even the people that like, I think there's this idea that the league is completely colluding against him. I think he's hurt himself in the past making bigger asks, then he's actual is actual value is and maybe that's part of what the underlying issue with the story. But that'd be fair. Yeah. So here's my thought on this entire thing. So I keep hearing sort of the same thing you're hearing where we're teams are coming up with excuses. Not to sign him. I don't know why we're only hearing that kind of you know, million miles off the record. And nobody wants to talk about it. I mean, wouldn't it behoove the NFL come out and say, hey, we've called him x amount of times was offered him x amount of jobs because everything I keep hearing keeps being really cow, and you know, has excuses baked into it. And I just think if they wanted this whole thing to go away, they could just say, hey, look blank team offered mccosh for this much money. And he said, no. And I just I haven't seen that report. I haven't seen a team come out and say that I've seen a coach, you know, say a million miles off the record. Oh, yeah. We try but he wanted to this. But I just don't think that I think that the NFL could solve a huge problem. If in fact, these teams were actually aggressively pursuing Colin Kaepernick by just going out and saying, and the fact that I haven't seen that between a believe I do. Not believe the white still collusion. I absolutely do not believe that. I think it's a bunch of scared, you know, managers more risk their jobs. None of them want to risk the quarter extraction, which I always think is overblown. But I do think that they have not done enough PR on their side to make everyone believe there's not collusion. And and part of that is just coming out and offering him job if they're actually doing that. Instead of just kind of quietly saying, oh, yeah, we tried to offer him something you work. Now. One of the criticisms of this whole thing is people are now saying this this shows concrete does not want to play football. Do you believe must be he wants to play football again? I do I don't I don't believe he wants to play football. And I don't believe he wants to be the face upstart league on on, you know, even on network TV last week, and we'll be going forward..

"Here we go get Kevin Clarke from the ringer. You guys. I hope you know, each other. I didn't even ask it hits on if you liked each other or not. So this could get really awkward, right? No, we've known each other for years get along quite well. I don't wanna see for Robert. But I think we get along quite well. I'm pretty good faking. It. Good. Okay. Here we go eight questions or maybe more. I don't know might be nine rapid fire feel free to you know, doesn't have to be one word answer here. Little bit of explanation. Okay. So with all the quarterbacks who saw the foles news them picking up the option him opting out that could be one example, give me and we'll start with Kevin here. Give me the best quarterback. That's which is teams the best season coming up in two thousand nineteen. Going forward. I think there's gonna be some move route thinking about what it Cincinnati. Do. They buy any Dalton immediately that kind of thing today draft the guy I'm looking at Ryan tannehill. Because I know that he thinks the most likely guy who's position right now to be a starter who can move teams off. I think the dolphins might move away from him. And if that happens, I think he has I think it's more tools than we think if he can stay healthy. And I think that if he gets the right coach, I mean on the not going to happen. But you know, it Sean McVay ever got Ryan tannehill. I think we're looking at. It's pretty good Ryan panel, maybe four or five lock out. They'll be looking quarterback off season. Okay. I'm gonna go with teddy Bridgewater going to the long. Wow. So visits as Brian on situation and everything around the quarterback Jay Gruden gotten. A lot got a lot out of ties in south force. If they had something to do with that and Jaeger pretty good year house before he went down last year, I visited back stuff themselves position. So I'm gonna give you any Brits on her sewing the rest in my runner off would be if Nick foles lines up Jacksonville based on what around there as the fact that he Philippos there now and knows him and knows how to use those plus out of that might be another one to watch too. Okay. Give me the biggest free agent signing for this year. I'm gonna give you the jet signing Levy on bell Anton out how about that TV. Oh, I think it's yet. He has been loading up to try and get one of the past or if have cleared all this one of these teams set now that are way to find a pass rusher. And I'm not here to list. Ryan a lot of games on there. Deport departure forest being clowney. Frank clark. I think a lot of guys wind feeding fat. And so one guy who I I'm pretty Cyril biggest marketed Fowler. I think those damn and bell what we're price that you wind up with the jet. I think that the jets on bell written all over them. I think that there is a couple of things they look I I was gonna agree with Albert Zeta has like end up. Pag I think we might be some of you know, a couple of minutes of market and not resigned. I think that I think we've all forgotten about in down the consumer entirely possible that he changed teams and e could find a new home and be quite good. You guys are really good on the timing. Russell Wilson one year left on his deal recently reported that there were no discussions. We don't that doesn't necessarily mean. Anything give me Kevin a guess on what his guaranteed money is. And what are we looking to surpass one hundred million with Andrew luck guaranteed and that Ryan well in reset the market and Matt Ryan, if not in Iran, I think.

"I'm Jim barge along with Elliot's short parks. And. I don't know. There's a I feel like every time you open your mouth people. Just don't like what's coming out of it. Let's say that too. Yeah. Yeah. And your dog. Oh, you're still having trouble. Blake with the big time. Trouble with the dog. I I the puppy. I should say three months. Congratulations. Thanks, and it's the baby. And then the right? And then you don't have to necessarily do those in order to teach my dog how to not go into house before I worry about this dog tips. Rarely parks will take those two would love dog tips. I cannot figure out how to get him to stop going in the house, really. Moshe that is. Well, I mean, that's just you gotta tell them. No. And then she'll Englishman me to say. No. And then you've gotta take him outside after that happens. The frustrating thing is he'll never speak English. So I'll never be able to explain to them. What to do? It's just literally yelling at them. Well, we we certainly know what to do when it comes to. Well, I guess we don't with Carson with this team. I I really don't know what we're expecting next year. And you seem to think that the it's trending down for Carson. Specifically, do you think it's trending down for the team as a whole do you think it's going to be? I think I would say it's trending down as a whole because I think it's really tough to kind of reopened this window again. But I don't think it's trending down for car. So I would make argument that the window is closed, but a new window opens next year with Carson is your quarterback. When you look at this team of the last two years thing is a strong argument you made that Nick foles was the quarterback of this team. Yes Carson played. But Nick foles quarterback and won the biggest games as team played in. And when you think about the two thousand seventeen in two thousand eighteen season, you will think about Nick foles what he meant to this team. So in two thousand nineteen with assuming foles is off the roster. And it seems like that is what's gonna happen, right? This is going to be Carson's team for really the first time since. Midway through two thousand seventeen. Right. So I think the window is reopening in a way. But also say this I think you can make it argument with the roster. It's trending down with Doug Peterson as the head coach. I don't think this is a team that will ever bought them out. I think that's a good enough head coach you can almost lock in nine wins. Eight eight or nine wins each year with a playoff run. So I think that's one reason to be optimistic but the players on the roster. I mean, look Jason Peters that you're left tackle that's a huge position of need for the eagles the defensive line. Hello d- nod is probably going to be gone TIMMY, Jernigan maybe Chris long said yesterday with. Keep going which is great news for this eagles team. But they're going to need them to because I don't think Brandon Graham will be back desperately need, they they need Brandon Graham back to but even them I mean, even grams thirty one so it's just really hard to look at this roster in find young players that you can say, okay, that's a stud for the next five years. Right. I mean, Dallas gutter, but he's a backup tight end of antibiotics. Yes. I do think he's going to be a stud. You mentioned still Douglas. I think he has a bright future. But overall, there's just not a lot of players on the roster. When you looked at again, the Pro Bowl compared to the Cowboys that they have on this team. Yeah. But you keep bringing up the Cowboys because they wanted a vision there their end a beat eagles twice season. Stop the same time eagles. Did they want less games during the regular season with way, more injuries with way, more of a ragtag bunch like that's that says a lot, you know? I understand that the second year in a row that they've been back to the playoffs. I understand why you want to diminish the Cowboys like I get it. But at the same time, I think people need to open their eyes to the fact that the Cowboys have a very told they were trending up when they lost the Green Bay. When Dak Prescott went in there. The eagles will know my God the the difference between this is night and day in a took one year. And then what happened the next year? They won the right things change quickly in the NFL. Obviously, we none of us. None of us have any idea. Besides James seltzer. What's going to happen next year? Right. None of us know. Yeah. So what I'm saying is you can only look at what we see in front of us. And there's no denying that. The Cowboys have a brighter future right now than the God. That's. The real tagline. There. Forget Carson Wentz. You actually think the Cowboys eagles right now. Peterson is the only reason and kind of Carson. Kind of Carson. Okay. Awesome. Well, this is going to go great. Let's go to Rick in Lancaster, Rick. What's going on, man? How are you? Can you hear me? Yeah. I got you in anyway. Thing is about if we put all Asian a basket with with the we'll winch and he covered back and he's hurt stuff. Like that. We get rid of foes where we could be done for four or five years easy. I don't think it'd be four or five years. I mean, they were drafted in a quarterback at that point or find somebody tell me, what are we going to get, you know? No. I mean, that's a good point. John says draft quarterback. All right. Go ahead. Rick. Listen, these guys, you know, like like what quarterback goes down most games the season's over, you know, I've been watching this now for the past ten years. I mean, I know it stuck to carry two quarterbacks. It's a hard thing to do. But it's almost like. It's not that bad of an idea. Man. You gotta work it out somehow. I mean, the salary caps going up. You know, I. You know, like when Rogers gets hurt their season's over up there. Yeah. That happens to happens to a lot of teams, and I get that. And Kevin Clarke from the ringer wrote an article about that a couple of weeks ago, and I think we get so spoiled by quarterback play in this league as it is right now that people get tricked into you don't need to pay the quarterback as they're easier. It's easier to find out you can get away with a lot more. You're the one that you can just draft one. Of course, I'm saying they would just draft another one at that point. What happens when you put all your? What would you say the same thing about foles at that point? And they're like, oh, man. He's really not the sixteen game guy that we anticipated. Now, we're stuck again. Here's where I agree with Rick. If there's if there is a year to keep both like this is the last year, the eagles could do it because Carson's still only going to be making eight or nine million as a salary cap it. Now, they re signed Carson deal. Then obviously, they're not going to bring full back. And I don't think they will either way. But if the eagles brought foles and Carson back this year, they would still be making right around what you're breeze mix for the saints. So this idea in the saints have a very talented roster. Why because they've drafted row with young players in before the eagles have not really done. But this idea that you can't pay like thirty three million dollars to a quarterback and be competitive is not true. The eagles just be spending it on two different gotten. But I do think and I agree with Rick like you. I would bring back full as if I were the eagles went. That's what I'm saying. Like, there's no point in doing. Well, that's no, it's not it's it's the truth. Like, there's no point in doing that. If if it really is your team. No one runs a to Cuba system. It's the only time that has really worked was here. It's not to QB system though. It's your franchise quarterback with Carson within elite backup and false. I guess, but that's what needs said fills for he's he's cheaper. And look, I think they'd say falls a bright future. He's not an elite backup at this point short. But I'm saying he doesn't cost twenty million dollars either go to regime in north Philly up. She wants to hear from you. Hey, hey, how you guys doing good, man? Got totally disagree. As far as the us roster. We have non draft picks. I always believe a Harry Roseman where he's able to do on free agency as far as maneuver money around. So I could guarantee that he will bring in players that can produce. I don't want Brandon grants because he's already thirty one years old and this draft and in free agency, you have a lot of good defensive and as far as the Cowboys. They're called would have to pay way more players than you have to pay the market Lawrence Elliott Amari Cooper quarterback. So. I'm just agree with you there all in with him. Like, they they are not selecting the first round, Elliot. I don't know how you can be taking up with when you gotta pay a wide receiver. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. One more when did the eagles after oughta injuries? The eagles had DeKalb was fairly healthy offense. And they they really didn't suffer any significant injuries. So pretty equal amount playoff games. They won in for them to beat. Now. The new giants team win of the season. Like like like the Cowboys and eagles are or neck and neck. And and if you ask me, I'm gonna take the eagles roster over the Cobb was just because you have played young player that you think it's better than I have the totally disagree because you know, you can't bring everybody bet that let me say this though, the Cowboys have a ton of cap space. Let's just start with that. They have the room to resign all these. But it's also going to be tight in three players. Yeah. But three here's the deal. Like, yes, it's going to be typing three players, but it's going to be tied up three players that just won you the division. And then one you a playoff. Cowboys. Did you can't tell me what they call? We did it equals there too. Visit. They both won one game. And it was sent home. All right, good, call regime, one of my favorite callers already in my brief time here at WIP. But let me say this everyone like you're bringing up this playoff point the Cowboys won the division. So that is a that is a big accomplishment. A lot of people are overlooking here. Just in terms of they both want to play. So did did it with quarterback. That's not going to be here next year. The Cowboys quarterback that is going to be your next. Sure. So that's so that's the only reason why they're taking up is because. That's proven that. He can win the division. Even though he was doing that in two thousand seventeen because it was a runaway. The reason the Cowboys there was taking up is because they have a very good young roster. They do players that are healthy. And they just accomplished something together as a unit. I think Carson look cars and said it himself. He's never played in a playoff game. He admitted it was a whole on his resume. This isn't me saying this Carson saying it, although I said at first. Look Carson has to get playoff experience before I can really does. But none of that says that the Dallas Cowboys are in a much better position moving forward in the Philadelphia say much better. But if I had a. It's a brighter future for the Dallas Cowboys specifically because they have four or five young pro bowlers, which don't really matter heading into it. No, no. Because they're winning. And here's the thing regime said that I disagree with. Okay. She said, you know, how we always get it done in free agency. And there is truth to that. But you don't win in the NFL with free agency you win with draft. Unless you Rams unless you're the Denver Broncos the Broncos or honestly, the Philadelphia how did the Broncos winning for the Broncos won a free agency? What was that two thousand and six? Okay. Yeah. Yeah. It's a bit of an extreme example. That's not extreme. It's just it's a it's a continuing trend, which I don't think is true anymore. I think you can win in free agency. And they've had to because they've man the draft. The eagles did win and free agency and a lot of ways Super Bowl. So that's exactly my point. Regardless. My point is still this the Cowboys doing better job drafting they have more young talent on the roster that they're winning within the eagles do. So when you project the future, look if you told me the eagles won the division next year. I would not be surprised. I'm not saying I would pick the Cowboys. But I do think their future is brighter right now than the eagles. Let's go to our good friend, Tom in Abington, Tom. What's up, buddy? How are you? Oh nothing much. So like, I'm forgetting something John I feel like you are too. Oh, right. Right. Right. My new favorite tweet. And I get. Guys, one is the whole false talk on a stop. And we have to wait until we lands and Jackson. March fifteenth is that when when did the doors opened again for the NFL whenever that happens. I think that's that's when we can finally stop talking..

"When you talk about pre crisis crisis stays. Visit cetera. It's like it wasn't so long ago that Chelsea was beating city, so dangling. Yes. So it it does seem kind of like, I guess with any big club week to week how we view them. But I think it's kind of worrisome right now, I think at Stamford Bridge because of what sorry is saying and how kind of jaded the players seem. So Chelsea are in fourth place in third are Tottenham and actually, Mike. I don't know if you've noticed on Twitter at all. But there's some ringer FC listeners who think that we're a little too harsh on Spurs. What do you think I mean, sure like, it's? Anyone who's told us that we're too harsh on Spurs rest assured that bringers own number one Spurs fan. Kevin Clarke has promised us. He'll join us on ringer FC in future episode after the Super Bowl because of course, he's doing NFL stuff. He told me that he has a color coded spreadsheet various charts and pie, graphs. I think that he's going to give us a very verbal dressing. Like an extreme dressing down on this podcast wants to Superbowls over. I'm I'm ready for it. I don't know about you. Anyway, Spurs are in third on fifty one points. They're nine points off the leaders Liverpool. It seems like just yesterday. We were talking about them as outside longshot contenders for the league. But now, it's I think fivethirtyeight has them at less than one percent. So in the midst of all of that, of course, they're in a bit of an injury crisis. A hurricane was hurt. He hurt his ankle in the United match. He's out until March over the weekend against Fulham deli suffered a hamstring hamstring strain. Turns out today. The news is he'll be out until March saw no men is at the Asian Cup, South Korea. Almost lost today. Had they lost. He would be returning to England. But of course, they had to beat Bahrain in extra time. So now they're in the quarterfinals will they'll play cutter. Did you watch Spurs in Fulham? Yes. Yes. Yes. I did. See Harry wings, come to two toddlers rescue. Yeah. So they say he saved it from being crisis. So I guess it's just pre-crisis. I will. It's definitely it's definitely firmly in crisis. I think we just talked about being nice disperse. Oh, okay. Yeah. But at the same time, I it's you said yourself, Harry Kane is out until March sano Minhas out for the next licks. I mean like four this month soco's out ALI'S out. They just sold. Kim belly? Despite his fitness issues and the next slate of games is not exactly easy. They have Chelsea this Thursday. Crystal Palace who just gave Liverpool a run for their money. The Sunday, then they play what furred Newcastle lesser city. And then they have both of the legs of the rows of sixteen against Dorman is not going to exactly be easier from here on out for Tottenham. And they're missing. There's just missing a lot of. I mean, like it's going to be tough going. You don't I take it? You don't have any faith in Fernando Llorente. I don't think that Spurs fans have any if in Fernando your day. It needed it to be. So that the the the glancing header he had wide open in the box to put the game away against full of missed it. He might be one of the only attackers in the Premier League to have a bad game against Fulham all year. I I don't have anything in front of me that you know, like can support or refute that, but I'd say that's true. You know, Harry winks you mentioned he scored the winner against Fulham. He's gone. A lot of stick in a lot of flack I've seen from Spurs fans over this season in particular, but he seemed to do pretty well on Sunday. But I mean, like, I know that this is a I've mentioned this several times in this podcast before. But it really was amazing to watch Tottenham beat Madrid three one with. I mean amid 'field cobble together of not first choice options. So you can view this as a considerable hill for toddler to climb. But it can also just be like another one of poverty knows like successes if he manages to stay on the top four with this depleted roster. So yeah, this is where depth will tell and everyone talking about how Tottenham has..

So when you looking at a Sam darnold, you're young guy who you can pour into you don't want a young coach and a young guy. I like Mike McCarthy because he can he can pull from his experiences with Aaron Rodgers in Brett farve, and he can pull from even Young Sam darnold and allow him to become who he wants Kevin Clarke from the ringer came on earlier. He had a great line. He said what you don't want. Is it developing quarterback getting a developing coach you want a state you like Andy Reid to Kansas City, then he can get Patrick Mahomes developed. We know who like that. I like that saving a lot you bring in Matt rule. You gotta developing quarterback in a developing NFL head coach, I'm not interested in that. No, no McCarthy. I love McCarthy. I absolutely love McCarthy. I. I think my only knock on Mike McCarthy was his complacency when it comes to play calling bad at it. Or didn't care. He wasn't bad. He wasn't a bad play caller. I just when he got up on teams. He was very conservative very conservative any. He just didn't have that that could be generational. Chuck Knox Marty you know, it is a little bit. That's the way they're ourselves. You have to pair yourself when you know in self-assessment in this league is very important. If you know that that's who you are.

I have everybody joy. I I've never had a day. So so the only one the only game all the guests. I've had today eleven disagreements one agreement you, and I agree in the colts literally had so you're either going to be very right or wrong. Wow. I'm gonna get shelled Monday. We're calling was wrong. A lot of that on Monday. Okay. Let me ask you this. Because you would know this better than anybody. When Aaron Rodgers talk about the jets job when Aaron rob you were there when he came out of college. He had a weird throwing motion. Good athlete. Not world-class wasn't there when he came out of college. But I was there the year after okay? So you saw the growth. Yes. So he had weird quirky rigid. Throwing motion had to be fixed came in socially, California, kid, little odd. He farve didn't necessarily click a little bit of an ad Liber could be a little reckless and all those years later. Mike McCarthy gets no credit for developing Aaron Rodgers who was not close to a finished product. Sam darnold, California kid good ad liver. Little reckless kind of a weird elongated throwing motion McCarthy and the jets seems like such an obvious choice to me. Am I crazy? No. You're not crazy. I I don't I like this simply because you he commands respect right out the gate. He understand he will have your most important players attention at all times in why is that? Because of where he's where he's come from who he's coached in his accomplishments. What he's been able to do with those guys under him. I'll Brett farve in Aaron Rodgers. So when you're looking at a Sam darnold, you're young guy who you can pour into you don't want a young coach and a young guy.

"And. A bad aggressive. I'm picking just going out there and doing something bet the New England Patriots wouldn't expect you to make a no huddle offense. Where Ellen just throwing the short little. Passes. Get. Just throwing them way off their game. Well, you might see that Gary. But you know, the other thing is pretty radical. Coach's won't do it coaches. I mean, you you if you pay attention to it. He's he probably do when you listen to us talk and talk about that and talked to coaches like to to them to coach Sean McDermott that is would be offensive. I think anything like that. I think I know it I think I know that that kind of thinking offends him. Because again, it it implies necessarily the bills can't win the game and other way, and we sit here and go, well, we've sat here and watched the New England Patriots beat them thirty two out of the last thirty six times. Maybe you can't beat them. Another way you are a fourteen thirteen point underdog. Like, you probably can't beat them another way. But there's no way he's representing that to to his locker room. Right. Imagine that. So that's the problem. Yeah. If you had, you know, different management, not I don't mean necessarily different than Sean McDermott. But Joe McDermott is. Middle manager in a billion dollar company. He doesn't necessarily have to make all the decisions if he worked for somebody who saw who saw the whole board the way you're talking and the way I like, I like to think I see it. Then. They would change. But then you'd have what you'd have McDermott be like, well what what is this your cutting my legs out. I'm not even really the coach here. And you'd have a a team that might not be desirable. Like, you wouldn't you might have a you. You would have big issues that eventually you would work through. But. We're talking about a lot of things there. I think in a traditional structure coaches a middle manager. I think he runs the football department. I think McDermott's in charge of everything. So if he wanted to play that way like it would be he could do it. I don't think there's anyone that's in a position over there to like say like you should do this. I think he's in charge. I do not say exactly Brandon Beane works for him. But I only Brandon bean is doing stuff at all the trauma Kermit doesn't want done. But but Terry is not telling them anything like this. He doesn't want to be telling him anything. Did you read? Kevin Clark the other day for the ringer. Yes. It did this long piece that Kevin Clarke wrote. Maybe we'll talk to him again soon about changes in football analytics fourth down all the different ways that football is changing foot. It's going to happen. It has started. It will continue the battle is won the nerds one, and it will continue. So all this. You know, you kick and scream some fans have always wanted to kick and scream about this stuff. Go ahead. I mean, it's not gonna matter. And we'll see which end of it all the bills come out in the bills. Have I think always looked like they were no model franchise to say, the very least in this area that to say they do nothing. I know they do I know they consider themselves. Analytics minded, and and that they do pay it some he'd they had a guy here that they brought in to who knows where to run that. There was never any real evidence. Except for like what what do we know about GPS stuff at practices? They track track guys work rates and things like that. And there's probably a lot of that that I've never even heard of before. But on game days. You know, this coach doesn't coach that way. He doesn't he doesn't care about win probability. Couldn't probably couldn't define it for you. He he talked after the Miami game. They lost the Miami game was the final score. Like they lost by four. I think whatever it was close game came out of. Wanted on that touchdown pass that Alan tried to throw the Miami game. The whole game was like one play either way is going to decide that game. And it did and. Decisions he made at the end of the first half. We're all defensive minded decisions. It was too. You're playing to not fall behind by more. You're not playing to score more you're playing to give up less timeouts. He was on our show on Monday. And he described how sometimes so he challenged the member of the game the Miami game tannehill got sacked and he got the ball out across the goal line to the one yard line. The referee called it down at the one no safety McDermott challenged it for a safety. That that made him one in ten in challenges. So why did he do that? And media asked him that. And we asked him that one thing he said was that sometimes you challenge plays to give your team a spark? Now, I'm sorry if that's your if that's your model for challenging plays. The I don't know what to do. I don't know what to say to that you tried to get your team of spark. They just made a sack at the one yard line. How about let's run the next play. They need a spark right now. Did you think he was tackled in the end zone? Did somebody tell you that the person should be out? Whoever told him that was a safety shouldn't work there anymore. Simple. And if he takes it upon himself like let's just make sure it could be two points here. Come on. This kind of stuff is how Kevin Clark can write three thousand words on analytics and the words buffalo and bills never appear. Because there's no reason I think to think that this franchise is like at the front of it now that can change on a dime. You change that by changing people you change that changing attitudes. And you know, you can do that the bills have always tended to be. We don't need to do that. Okay. Well, good luck. Yeah. They did go for it on a fourth and two at the Detroit fourteen on Sunday. And they didn't get it. But the he gave up a an easy field goal there. Because he he explained to me that he was interested. He thought they could get it. They were close to the scoring wanted to get the seven and wanted to see Alan sort of in the spot. Was his explanation for why he chose to do that. And not kick the field goal. And then he made what is probably now thought of as a pretty easy decision. But for him. It was still to me positive that. He didn't kick it away on fourth and inches at the midfield. At the end of the game agree that was up to me that was positive that. He did that some people called me on Monday and were critical with him giving up the field goal on the earlier one. And I was like I'm never going to be mad at him for doing that. Fourth in two thousand thirteen yard line. Like Knoxville and go get a first down or try to store. I don't care, and I was in here. But whatever point he made about Allen. You know, observing him. They're like, what do you feel like that's a pressure situation or something like that? Okay. He has been other pressure situations. But okay. Like, that's not something that's going to be in the in the wind probability math. No. So if that's the thing about spark and all that other stuff too. Like, I don't know that he I think he might shun it. I don't know. Maybe maybe not. But you're right. I mean, the thing about the two in every conversation we've had about it. What happened they got stopped? Did they lose? No. The game. Anyway, you know, there's field position there. I don't know. I'm trying to cram. A lot of points into this one overall point. I've never been confident. I've never had the first clue. The bills franchise was like into that by bringing up these situations from last Sunday, I'm not disputing that. I'm just giving examples here that he did do that on Sunday. But I don't know that he did it. In fact, I'm giving you an example of maybe doing it not for the right reasons. Even right on fourth of do I wanna see Ellen in this spot rather than you know, the the math says this or whatever. See I mean, I'm not I'm not telling you there on the right track in that area. At all, which they might be. I can never tell you for fact that they're that they're not. But everything I hear and see tells me to be to be dubious searches like, it's just I've never seen any real evidence that the bill's going back my whole career that they were, you know, leaders in this area bust analytics department was that New Year's. What what year was that? Well, it's hiring Marrone so thirteen right? Right. Right. And you hired that guy. Just you could've, you know, shaped him your way if that's what you wanted to be about. But it was just lip service. Anyway, thank you. Gary, Mike Chopin the bulldog with picks next..
"kevin clarke" Discussed on The NBA Show
"On Thursday, November fifteenth and you're hearing on Friday will start off with the biggest news of the week. And that's Jimmy Butler, who is of course, trades Philadelphia. Seventy Sixers Danny you wrote an article on the ringer breaking down Butler's debut, a loss to the Orlando. Magic game our own Kevin Clarke, actually attended. Oh, yeah. What was your big takeaway from that game? And what do you want to see moving forward? This is something that we've kind of touched on even before the first game. It was mainly what is Jimmy Butler going to look like alongside Ben Simmons to guys who are very much of the same vein power guard who love to have the ball in their hands and are probably most effective with the ball in their hands. And what we saw in the process. Definitely. Yeah. Well, we saw the game was. Bit of a mixed bag there. It was certainly clunky. With those guys. I it looked at the NBA dot com slash stats a data with touches time of possession and dribbles per touch all of that was close to identical for Ben Simmons. Joel Embiid foot. But as drastically different for Jimmy Butler, his front court touches were similar, but as time of possession was drastically different in Minnesota Butler possessed the ball for four point three minutes per game in his debut at the Sixers. It was only one point seven minutes. And that number's obviously you're going to rise for him as he gets integrated the offense and runs all the play. The only ran really one type of set for him the entire game. Would that said those touches and those minutes possess the ball are gonna have to come from somewhere? Jonathan how does their offense need to evolve. As those touches are given to Jimmy Butler, and they're probably gonna be milked from someone like, Ben Simmons. You know? It was weird to me was that it seemed like Simmons and Butler always played together. And it's Manson their debut together. And Embiid was always the one playing by himself. And I think. That's like the first big question that breadbasket figure out like how do I split up these three guys? Do you always have two of three in who gets that? And who gets that time by himself dominate the ball. I think that's the first question. Can you look at it in Minnesota Tibbs? There's been up his guys at all. Just crazy. I think Browns can lead to put up somewhat, but and these plans so I can smell Bob himself. So in other words, you're you don't agree with what he did on on in their debut with Embiid playing alone and with Butler and Simmons playing thirty one minutes. It's weird. Because like I get it because I'm beat been so good. But I missed I just wonder for Simmons. Especially felt he could be the man out if you're gonna play him with baller the whole time. Yeah. But what is similar do off the ball? Really? When I was watching the game. I was just like man the spacing is so cramped when you have basically Brett Brown running these really weird jumbo lineups where he had like that's kind of stopped for sure Simmons Butler on the court who could honestly play four or five if they wanted to and they did that a little bit. But there were also on the court with Mike Scala with Amir Johnson. There are a lot of guys who can't shoot in these lineups. And suddenly, you're looking at like negative space on the steam there are times where somebody would drive to the basket, and you left Simmons or Markelle full sitting in the dunker spot, not moving the entire possession in the lanes clogs. Right. I think that's something where it's just going to be a problem that they have to deal with with with both those guys..

"Right who shouldn't It, started from the jump but he had bad coach who didn't want to start it from the jump because it seems as if clay helton's about to do the same. Thing? With GT We don't have to do that right Looking at this Shawn Watson who put up nineteen touchdowns in seven games. Last year. Before he tore his ACL all right? And, I'm looking at Mitchell Trubisky. Who yes I. Get all the. Caveats I get it I understand them you. Don't have to tweet them. To, me you don't. Have to defense. Yeah I get it I get it Yeah but but, Trubisky still hasn't shown me anything okay so Colin, cowherd today on the heard. Talking with I think Kevin Clarke from the ringer and this, is the conversation they were having today and here comes the conversation about Mitch Trubisky. It's interesting. Take a lesson I remember when there? Were, in two thousand seventeen there. Were eight or. Nine quarterbacks available. And I came on the air and I. Said I don't buy Mitch. Trubisky, he couldn't start. As a junior I don't. Know how great to Sean. Is going to be I don't know if he's. Cams talent and I don't know if, like when I saw Andrew luck I was like, that's going to work the. Shawn Watson was available to Chicago And these guys available and, I remember Kevin Clark throwing her joining us I remember saying, at the time, listen Nick Sabin had. Six weeks twice and couldn't stop him Johnny Mandel got. Drafted because he had one good game and, Tuscaloosa in fact that was one good half the Shawn, Watson eight edema alive was six weeks to prepare dabble called him Michael? Jordan Sabin said since Cam best player I've seen. In college football if, to Shawn, Watson, pops is it going to. Be one of the all-time MRs by NFL teams so let's stay on that, analogy for a second if to Shawn Watson Michael Jordan Trubisky. He's got a good chance he doesn't have. To be Sam Bowie here because I just think that there's I think that, the, team, which is. The bears in general there's a lot of hype building. Around them and I think that that's because people see. The eagles model which is young quarterback offensive head coach let's surround the quarterback. With talent and see what happens but the lesson of the eagles is not those things it's to build the deepest. Roster in football and the bears don't have that. And Mitch Trubisky is not going, to, be surrounded with the guys zip Carson Wentz or Nick Foles was surrounded, by it's, not, the same so I feel. Like there could be a bit of a flop there and then after Sean, breaks out which last six games last season unbelievable if he. Breaks out then we really start talking about. That that backdraft is a massive mistake so that was the heard earlier today, Kevin, Clarke, from the. Ringer in Collin cowherd now here's the deal right like. You and I have been we've been told we are. Haters well what do you say when now national media people on the left. Coast are now with this perception of Mitch Trubisky it's not way give them some time aids You know it's it's questioning what's going on with The perception of. What Trubisky can be because they haven't seen either I don't like I feel like there's a bit of fool's gold with people thinking the bears are just. Going to automatically be able to turn it around and I think that the, other, caveat that people use. With Shawn Watson is well he's got a tornado we don't know what he's going to be like. That coming off of a tornado CEO Allen. Robinson the best bears best. Wide receiver supposedly go I haven't seen anything yet it's, also coming off? A tornado if. I'm. Not mistaken am I? Mistaken. I'm. Not mistaken right. You're. Talking to me yes okay and the haters, yeah, the, other thing that I always, hear is oh well they. Have, like we say we have top ten defense well the three guys that. Are, supposed to, get to. The quarterback are hurt yeah Akeem Hicks Leonard Floyd and now roquan Smith who left practice today with a hamstring strain and is now. Probably going to be doubtful for the season. Opener he's preparing as if he's going to play. He's preparing, as if he's going to play this Saturday which he won't. But he comes in and his exact quote is In fact before, practice Smith was. Asked about his greatest hurdle to be ready before Be, ready for re for, week one this. Is rich Campbell readiness and, roquan Smith, said just being in football shape you workout you do. All the running you, can but it's. Nothing like. Football shape and I get it he wanted his money you wanted guarantees that's fine but that's just another thing that the bears, are going to. Have to deal with when they they have no depth on defense new death whatsoever and that's what we've been saying since the season ended last year is the the difference between this team and a. Team that pops like? The Rams last year or the eagles is the teamed up you heard Kevin Clark say it like this is the one thing that I think is so funny about the NFL is people are so, obsessed with fancy football, that? They just look at the the outside in the quarterback wide receivers and. Quarterback right and if you have fancy, wide receivers and the quarterback every, teams good but if you study the advancing analytics the DV away from football outsiders the really good teams in the NFL are Tough up the middle on both the offensive side of the. Ball on the defensive? Side of the ball that's why Jacksonville top five defense became a team that could get to the AFC championship game that's why we saw the Rams from early on last year they advanced analytics showed, that the Rams were, one? Of the best teams of football the eagles one of the best teams. In football early on the Vikings one, of the best teams in football, what do all those teams have in common Deep defensive line play and they. Are good at running the ball and they can get to the quarterback defenses are deep and I don't see that what the bears no. I. Don't see it at. All because I see guys go down and then I don't. Know who's coming up after them they're like they're not they're not guys do you know. What I mean, they're just I think they are they. Are men yes they are they're just, place fillers you'll have. Death you don't have guys that you can rotate, in and out you don't have, guys that, are, going to be able to help this team. Win on defense because this, rebuild is going to take awhile absolutely I think it will I don't think it will just snap and turn this season that's. Why the listen, the number six and a half in Vegas on the win total for a. Reason this team were a better football team it would be seven and a half eight and a half they will be a higher number but. Many people even though the money looks interesting you say oh they'll go, over the six and a half they. Got new head coach you sure about that Are you sure are they deep enough as. A team to, withstand injuries injuries and still win seven. Ballgames I'm not sure if your answer, is absolutely yes then. You're telling me we've found the, quarterback of the, future because Trubisky is going to, be good, enough, to win games and I'm not sure about. That either I haven't seen, him win one yet I. Live in a high leverage situational game You couldn't do it in college couldn't win his own job and I haven't. Seen him do it for the, bears yet so in the eight o'clock hour. We will talk bears football of Corey Wootton we will. Hear from Zac Robinson from pro football focus we have a lot of football coming. Up, in the eight o'clock hour coming up next we will go to.

"kevin clarke" Discussed on The MMQB Podcast with Peter King
"Probably not in twenty four hours, but the next Sunday you can just, you can send that play to every player on the team to their ipads within ten minutes. And I don't think you can really overstate how much technology is changing the game in that regard. I mean, you can. I hear stories coordinators all the time. They'll see a play in high school game. They'll send it through a quarterback who's on vacation because he's got his ipad and it's downloaded, hey, take this concept, you hear all the time. And so I, you know, the RPO stuff is opened up an entirely new window. I think that there's going to be, you know, there's obviously certain differences. The blocking schemes can't be the same as college. But I think at the pro level, we're going to see a lot more innovation because coaches are a little more. I would use the word. Shameless about saying what? Hey, good idea. In high school. There's a good idea Appalachian state. We're just gonna take it and that didn't exist. One of the legacies I think of the wildcat from two thousand eight. I'm working on a story about that. Is. It was one of the first times teams looked to college and said, you know what it works. We're just gonna take it. And I think too many people just above ten fifteen years ago where they weren't using those types of place. That's a great great point. I'm gonna finish by asking you this very open ended. Bizarre question. I'm really, really, really concerned about the future of journalism. Okay. Not just because the things like the daily news, new York, Daily News, cutting sports staff from thirty four to nine or anything. But time after time year after year, journalism is not making money in enough places to grow into flourish. So what's your level of concern about real reporting even in our own little toy department world? What's your level of concern long-term about the reporting in all aspects of life? Not just sports but news. I totally agree. I mean, I'm very concerned about it, especially at the local level because it seems like all the money is funneling into a couple of different national outlets, and that's all well and good, and and it's it's good to have those sort of top investigative reporters being funded to cover national politics. But you worry about city council meetings. Any worry about state legislatures, which are the first cuts to go when you're looking at metro departments, and that's what that's what worries me is what is going to happen when there are no local reporters to police certain cities in certain municipalities, that's that's where I think the biggest concern is I think you're always going to have enough White House reporters. I think you're always gonna have enough people covering the Senate and from the big national thing because you know the New York Times, Washington Post doing fine. And some of the other outlets are doing fine as Well. I, I worry about at the local level paper. I'm from Orlando, the Orlando Sentinel. Are they going to be as are they going to be the BULLDOGS? They were ten fifteen years ago with some of the some of the shadiness. It always happens in Florida that that's the biggest concern for me. Kevin Clarke has been really fun talking to you so far. I've seen you now in buffalo. I've seen Cleveland probably in three or four other places will see me an indie. Good. I hope so I hope so. We'll will stare at Andrew lucked together, like like, like, we can't get enough of that. The line is Josh Allen watching Josh Allen right now. So if he's better worse than Josh Allen, we'll be able to figure out the twenty actually. Actually watching Nathan Peterman boy. What was interesting in we'll just finish on this but interesting talking to Brandon Beane that we came from Cleveland yesterday and you know they're gonna play. Tyrod Taylor at least early. Okay. Now, Brandon Beane basically said, may the best man win. You know, I mean, we're going to make a judgment. We're trying to win for two thousand two thousand eighteen. We're not necessarily looking at two thousand nineteen. Everybody just looks at it a different way. I don't know if you ran into Tim couches today, but he was really, really interesting in talking about how God patience, patience, don't rush these guys into it..
