Philadelphia Eagles trade QB Carson Wentz to Indianapolis Colts for two draft picks

"Story of the day. The Eagles have traded quarterback Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts and oh my goodness. It made me very happy. I was so excited. There's a lot to unpack. I want to start though by mentioning a weird thing first. In the 2016 NFL draft the number and overall pick was Jared Goff. The number two overall pick was Carson Wentz. And both have been traded away from the teams. They were drafted by 19 days apart. Just a weird quick doesn't happen very often the guy a number and overall pick a number 2 overall pick gets traded away. Especially not the quarterback position. Let alone almost in just over two weeks apart from each other. That's crazy. Pretty wild now after the trade the Eagles have a 33.8 Million Dead money. Salary cap charge for the 2021 NFL season what that means I will get into that in a minute. First of all, that's actually by the way the most ever to have dead money cap. I guess charge or penalties by an NFL team. It's so much that I actually thought that might keep the Eagles from trading cars and stuff like that might be so much of a penalty. They're not even getting rid of the guy sounds like they did. I thought it's good for everybody Carson Wentz wanted out they I think we're you know, we'll talk about Jalen hurts in a minute, but I thought it was good to get Carson out of there. It is also kind of weird and interesting I talked about Jared Goff previously very briefly the other the the record for the most amount of dead money against the salary cap was Jared Goff. The Rams amount is 22.2 million dollars off. Beat 19 days later by the Carson Wentz trade what is dead money? You may ask it's basically all the guaranteed money the Eagles still owe Carson Wentz after the trade. So even though Carson is no longer on their team. He still creates a thirty three point eight million dollar cap hit for next year. So over thirty-three million dollars off of the salary cap has taken up for Philadelphia. They cannot use that money for other players. It's weird. It's interesting. It's never that's again the most ever pretty interesting. I was surprised that you know, they still trade off a given that but in the trade the Colts got Carson Wentz so the cold they get their quarterback that the replacement Philip Rivers the replacement for Andrew Luck. I'm happy for the Colts man. They've they've Way to make it work. They lost in Turlock. They had to scramble the Mage Jacoby Brissett work for a year. They made Philip Rivers work for a year. Now. They've got what they believe is their franchise guide Carson Wentz good for them. The Eagles got a 2001 third-round pick for the upcoming NFL draft and a conditional 2022 second-round pick and here's what's really cool. The condition. Is that if Carson Wentz plays 75% off Kohls offensive snaps for next year if it stays healthy place the whole year or you know, it's good enough to be the starter all years and get benched. Then that draft pick goes from a second round pick in 2022 to a first-round picks. Oh, wow. I like about that. People are saying the Eagles got a horrible trade. They got fleeced. It's terrible. Oh my goodness. You gotta realize this is probably the best trade they could possibly find the Eagles traded away Carson Wentz a guy who has an injury history has been injured repeatedly over the years. He's coming off of a horrible season where he was so bad the dude got benched for Jalen hurts a rookie quarterback Club. So the fact that Philadelphia made a trade where they have an opportunity to get a first-round pick that's impressive to me. I think people realize that's the best they were going to get so anybody criticizing Philadelphia you did not realize how I think how little value Carson Wentz really had on the market people like nobody really wants him. I think JJ Watts getting a ton of attention Carson Wentz people are very wary. And I think it's really what's really disappointed me. Is that the Bears didn't get him. What did the Bears did the Bears not want him? I don't understand. Maybe they're trying to John Watson feel like the Bears really lost here. They still got home key who Carson Wentz has problems I think is way better than Mitchell trubisky. So debate that all you want. I don't know how you go. Like. Oh the Bears they got a great quarterback still trubisky. I like it. I think another thing people got realize is that I love the trade for Carson Wentz. He's going to a way better team he gets to play for his former offensive coordinator Frank back in 2017 the best year Carson Wentz ever had in the NFL. He was a before he got hurt. He was an MVP candidate playing under Frank Reich. He's reuniting with that guy that's going to be awesome to got a great relationship and EM the Colts have a great offensive line. They've got to get running game. They've got a great defense Carson Wentz is being put into a great situation. If he does not do well then there's no excuse. You can make he's got great great team around him good support good people. He's getting helped.

What they're saying: Philadelphia Eagles, Wentz or other teams — who has the leverage?

"All about away. Bought away by the way. The miami dolphins got their guy. I just meant they got us. That dude is they got a guy young guy so let's put some. what are we talking about. Let's put the question. Then this way. And by the way i would say this right now to are coordinating producer. Pete mcconville and our producer. Allie grenade. i don't understand how we do not yet have a feature called jeff saturday. Who's high this week. I mean every week jeff. Hester name that's got to become a tuesday stable. Is this week. We make a segment out of everything on this show but markets very quickly. If the dolphins get forgetting about guam if the dolphins get to shawn watson are they the biggest threat to kansas city in the afc next year. Yeah they are. And i know i say that because i saw were buffalo did. But i'm taking the sean before. I take josh allen and their defense. I'm taking miami. Defense with the sean. Look the inspire football. You play when you have a guy at that position that you know you can't win wit. It takes it to a different level. I love how floor is coaching. But i do think that sometimes going in and out with fits magic and into mayor. Put this team in kabul unknown territory. About what their identity was offensively and the defense never had a question. About what their identity. Would you bring this on. You answer that question. That's our quarterback. Raise the level of play of everybody around you. Oh and yeah let me tell you why. Because he threw for the most yards went out of number one receive on team this year. That's how good he is. Listen this is a no brainer. I would love to see desha watson and josh allen go toe-to-toe for years to come in that division and see who can make it out and then get the kansas city potentially in the afc championship bottom line in miami. They've been trying to find the next dan marino for twenty years. They thought maybe you're still may have him into a tunga vilo but shawn watson is as much more. A known commodity will see if that plays out. Meanwhile quarterback rumors are everywhere including these that the eagles wanna move carson wentz. We know that. What kind of market are they. Finding darlington has the very latest. It could be very interesting. Plus lebron james having another mvp caliber season. You'll hear why jay williams thinks he should win the academy award as well. That's on the way this is get up on. Espn do you own. Read your home share. You and i bet it can be hard work. You know it's easy bundling policies with geico geico makes it easy to bundle your homeowner's or renter's insurance along with your auto policy. It's a good thing too because you already have so much to do around your home. Go to geico dot com. Get a quote and see how much you could save. Its gyco easy visit. Geico dot com. Today that's geico dot com on. We go get up. And another of the quarterback trade sagas continues this one involving that main carson wentz whom league sources believe is on the way out of philadelphia and the eagles may also explore options with his longtime tight. Ends zach ertz. Perhaps philly could include ertz in a wentz package to maximize trade value. Words has one year and eight point. Two five million dollars left on his contract it look. There's a whole lot of speculation in jeff darlington insider here. I'll start with you as to why no deal has been worked out with wentz yet and one of the ways that i look at it from afar is maybe eagles. Just overestimate what it is. People might be willing to give up for wentz at this point when you consider the contract that he has. It's essentially the same circumstance as jared goff in los angeles and the rams had to pay a team to take him off their hands. So is that how similar or those situations and could that be. What's holding this thing up. Well very possible. Greedy speaking with a source with the eagles who certainly understand everything. That's going on with this deal. And you know the one thing that he said. I said what's the holdup here in his answers february sixteenth. Today lear doesn't even start for another month by a bunch of exclamation points and there is something certainly to that. March nineteenth is the date that they'd have to decide on paying him. That ten million dollar rostov on this. This is the runway that they're working with now. Of course you do want to make sure that you make the most of your leverage multiple teams involved. You don't wanna lose one of those teams and then Maybe cost yourself some compensation from that other team but we can point out here that This this source also told me that there is no no trade clause in carson wentz deal so it doesn't really matter say he wants to go to the colts but they're getting more compensation from the bears. They could just send him to the bears. It wouldn't be a problem

Marty Schottenheimer, NFL coach with 200 wins, dies at 77

"So james some sad news in the nfl coaching world. If you're of a certain vintage you'll remember the name marty schottenheimer. He was a coach starting with the new york giants back in seventy five when he was their linebackers coach and kept coaching right up until two thousand six with the san diego chargers. He was a head coach in kansas city. Washington san diego. But i remember most with cleveland browns head coach in the mid eighties for them when they got. Oh so close to a super bowl. Berth in the afc title game. They're about to beat denver. They're about to go in for the winning touchdown in the final minute of the game and earnest byner get stripped just as he's about to step into the end zone offload jeremiah casteel. Dist reached in grabbed the ball off byner denver recovers and they hold on for thirty eight to thirty three win. And that was. It's called the fumble. If you say that in cleveland people know the fumble ohio and The brown had no shortage in sports of disappointments. So that would be one of them. When you say the fumble people know exactly what you're talking about and really gives until the cavaliers finally when an nba title really lent itself to the lovable loser. Tag that cleveland. Sports fans have had for many years but marty schottenheimer Certainly had lots and lots of success. I think he was like fourth all time as far as coaching winds. Go so sad news to hear his passing today at the age of seventy

Can Tampa Bay Win A Second Straight Super Bowl

"Well in just his first season with the team brady has already brought a title to tampa buccaneers controlled. Much of last night's thirty one to nine super bowl win and brady is poised to keep winning saying after the game quote. We're coming back. You know that we do know it. And i personally love it shared. And how do you feel about is brady. Started his second dynasty in tampa skip out of his tour to detail. And if you made me say yes to say no. There's a reason why no team had repeated and sixteen years because it's hard to do and you see. Injuries are big part of this. So because we saw what happened to chiefs offensive line. They lose basically three starters and they're not the same team that they took to the super bowl the previous year. They're not even the same super bowl that would that finish the afc championship game. So injuries player key role in And plus a lot of things have to go well the injuries during the course of the season. I don't believe the pandemic. I think we're getting more and more vaccines arm and President biden was talking about last night. Say i expect the pike house for super bowl fifty six. Hopefully that's the case. Where is so fi here. Oh you're be out. I thought i'd be right over luma and plus get if you think about it. They got shack bags. A free agent. Labonte david i believe. They bite price themselves out of contracts tampa although they might be willing to take less money to come back to people. It's with jack man. Considering that he was an undrafted free agent and leave any money on the table of. Aren't they david that might be something dominant. So leonard fournette and tonio brown gronk. I believe a couple of those guys you can get back on the cheap but skipped the only have thirty guys on the contract for next year. The next is a that is forty two in the nfl their fifty three man roster only thirty the contract So who comes. Who goes is so hard to repeat because the turnover is so great now what we know right now for the most part. All the coaches are coming back. Tob old didn't get a job by relent. We didn't get a job and so for what we can see right. Now get the coaching staff. We'll be back in full. There was some speculation. That bruce arians if they won this one would would see the the head coaching to talk balls and maybe either being the background or walk into the sunset. I think this was such a headache experience for him at his age. He'd say i gotta take another shot. Hey could you remember. Meal did that and he later regretted he came. Back out of retirement ended up coaching kansas city. Yeah because he felt he made a decision out of emotion. That was the wrong decision. So maybe a fist back a couple of months but it's hard to repeat. There's a reason why there have only been in an full of teams now in the last thirty years. That's ever done it because it's so hard to cobb was dated. We did it and the patriots did it.

No, AOC Didn't Make Up Her Capitol Riots Experience

"So we go into her office. And i'm like a ten right. Like i m at a full ten fighter flight thought i was going to die like ten minutes ago then thought i was gonna die again because i have to tell you. We're outside in this hallway alone. I'm banging on this door. And i'm thinking and i'm fully expecting one of these insurrectionists to turn the corner with a gun and that it would be over again. Clueless alexandria ocasio cortez described terrifying experience at the capitol on january. The sixth in that instagram live video earlier this week and ever since conservative media has been trying to smear him as a lion claiming she exaggerated danger she was in because she was not at the capitol building which the riots is breached but in a nearby office building on the capitol complex and now her republican colleague. Nancy mace of south carolina has joined the bad faith attacks on air sees credibility tweeting yesterday quote unto doors down from asean. No insurrectionist stormed out hallway along with a fox news article about aoc facing backlash for a of the event. Nancy mace paul. Don't even further in an interview on fox news that afternoon. Not at one moment during the events of january six at any writer or any insurrectionist come down. The hallways were offices are located. I initially took to task the press for making these claims taking these claims of pocket politic levels and and all i did was state the facts i live in in reality i deal with facts and not fiction and i said that there were no writers in the hallways of cannon. I'm doors down from you. And she lost it today. She doesn't deal in reality. She hasn't been doing that today. I think it's really important that we take members to task when they're not being honest with the american people hold on i of. Afc of acclaimed insurrection in our hallways but more importantly in terms of the threat. Nancy mace with that day too. So what did she say about it. The time well in the midst of the riots on january the six cheat tweeted about evacuating her office and canon between nearby threats. He nearby threat. The next morning she described the danger she felt. She was in one point when we were evacuated because of the bomb threat. The pipe bomb threat. I was stuck in a narrow tunnel with other people. Staff and members of congress was a very dangerous situation lives were put at risk and my message to americans day. It was a very sad day in our nation's history. It was a very dangerous situation. Mace gave more details to a south carolina newspaper that day saying she barricaded herself inside her office. During the attack fearing that trump supporters. She'd seen staying at a hotel might target after. She voted to certify. The electoral votes may said she decided to sleep in an office. That in fact she was so fearful in the wake of the attack that she told a local news station she intended to carry a gun on capitol hill saying quote. I will not be put in that situation again. So to be clear nancy. Mace wants to carry a gun and barricaded herself in her office. But aoc is lying about an exaggerating the threat. These people are shameful. we will know. The attackers was spread out across the complex. We've seen the images and the feds are seeing data like this. Those dots are the cell phone locations of insurrectionists inside the capitol building january the six. It's part of a remarkable set of data being used to identify individuals in the mob with the help of big brother but also raising questions. Therefore about al surveillance.

Some bills fans wanted to cheer up the ravens quarterback so they did some research. Jackson played college football and louisville kentucky where he worked with the charity blessings in a backpack that organization works with kids whose families don't have enough food and so they rely on schools but covid nineteen closed the schools so getting meals to kids is not as simple as it used to be so.

"It's the reigning defending super bowl champion. Kansas city chiefs. patrick mahomes. Do you see travis kelsey submitting. His status is the number one tight end in football future hall of fame of start by brother from another mother. Plus you've got tyreek. Hail being arguably the best wide receiver in football andy reid enemy and deepen shows up when it counts. Believe it or not it would tyron. Honey badgers nevertheless. It is what it is. The kansas city chiefs on the class might himself. The steelers are out of my top spot. It's unacceptable what i've been seeing. Got the chiefs that number one the packers at number two bills that number three. Okay the saints at number four and the seattle seahawks at number five my top five teams in the nfl for this week remember. The list is flu well last week. You had your first stevens a plus list of the season last week. You got an a plus hoping in order the week before the week before you had a stevens a-list because you got them in order but you could make an argument for the last one. This is a stevens b-list list one in to the chiefs in the packers to me or easy. How do you have seattle in there right now. Over the rams stephen for the rams in their last what is it. Five games now have one loss by a field goal to a divisional rival. Otherwise they've beaten seattle. They've beaten arizona beat new england they. I mean there's another team in there pretty good. I'm forgetting that the rams also be the rams are four in one in their last five win the widow seattle. Is you put them on the list. Because they beat up the jets worst literally the worst team in football but they couldn't even do a to step through the new york teams without taking an l. against the giants. So the rams gotta be in the top five over seattle. Otherwise list is good going to jail. I listen i agree with back. I'm agreeing with math. Exists is this is a b listen. The chiefs and the packers is like a blind squirrel. Come stephen a dope prop up. Beat on your chest about those two. I mean almost default at this point with that one but with three the bills i can. I can get there with the maximum. I would put. I would put the la rams up in that. three's range. I'm jumping even the saints with. Will you talk about the rams. The number two team on third downs. They get no least explosive. Plays against their defense. And since the twenty fifteen broncos they gave up the fewest yards per average. Play that saints by the way that team won the super bowl in two thousand fifteen with the broncos so how you missing out of them. They ran the ball effectively. You put the seahawks up in their bad defense. Not a bad defense. How we put them where they jumping up again. Saints deserve to go down but you miss completely to. That is a nolan ryan you. That is no hitter. When you don't put the rams up on your top five. Stephen i feel like i feel like i need to let him speak because either got beat up at all so i feel like you need to be your defense off your game this morning. You about a fact but let me do the show with backs. 'cause you build this morning with this eight then the more deaths in the game against cleveland and we talked about mike mccarthy. You are also yoga today. Let me tell you something. First of all i i have no issue with by being number two is just on my list. That would be the buffalo bills and then when you talk about the los angeles rams like max and jeff just mentioned who who did the buffalo bills be the los angeles rams who did the green bay packers beat they beat the saints. And if you're talking about the saints with drew brees. I can get what you leaving them in the top five. If you're talking about him with some he'll they show and the seattle seahawks. Listen we know about the defense. But i i almost envision that with russell wilson the opportunity that they have offensively and getting into the playoffs where you're talking about one game for three hours. That need a win. Who you bet your chip. So i understand that but do you off your game this. You should have called me that you know what it is. We take of this week. We we ate we hide. He's the only other game this morning. Help them and let me let me tell you. Sound right now more space. Let me tell you something right now. Just saturday and especially you bradley.

"Last night. But if we really want to dissect what we saw last night in terms of that played at forty four yard connection hollywood brown. How can we at least acknowledge that first of all it wasn't like it was some don down the sideline to like manning ham in the super bowl or something like that which aaron rodgers throwing it against dallas. You know right down. The left sideline away to did. We're talking about lamar jackson and the baltimore ravens. Throw running for over two hundred and thirty yards. And then he scrambled to his right and everybody descended on him because they know how great he can run the football so he loves a pass to wide open. Hollywood brown in the middle of the field because he runs the ball effectively taught collapsing on the more jackson. He deserves credit sports. But let's not act like we saw. Patrick mahomes aaron rodgers or that pass from ally manning manning ham that took place on that path. Can we put the brakes on that. Can we do that all right guys. Let's leave it there. I wanna focus on cleveland and talk about this team's evolution because i started this off with the segment. When they played week one remember. It was a complete beatdown in things have certainly changed. Obviously they took it down to the wire much more competitive and really closing the gap. So stephen with that being said have you changed your opinion on the browns. I have no choice but to i to give the browns property is baker. Mayfield if there was ever a day that mrs baker mayfield should be tweeted this morning because that performance last night was spectacular on a part of baker mayfield. Make no mistake about that. He was absolutely sensational. Dope over three hundred forty. This brother was dropping bombs. All over the place. I was incredibly applets. Stefanski on the move. He was scrambling to his right. Throw a bath. I mean he was taking chances. He was making small plays he was going through. Progressive baker. mayfield was incredibly impressive. I give credit where credit is due and with all of those dan progressive commercials that i told y'all gonna last night was the first night that it was completely unapologetic and unapologetic. It was absolutely validated. Baker mayfield showed up and showed what he's capable of. That's the number one overall pick we've been looking for. That's the guy that took oklahoma to the college football playoffs. That's the guy that won the heisman trophy. That's the guy everybody's been looking for. He showed up last night. And if he shows up and plays like that all along with nick chubb and kareem hunt being able to run the football away that they can run the football. I got news for you. Cleveland is going to be a big. Tom bona fide threat. A matter of fact they might end up. We might have ended up sleeping them. They might be the biggest threat to kansas city because of their ability to run the football not defensively because we know they can't stop. Patrick mahomes can run the football which we know they can do and baker mayfield throwing a football like that. I got to stand down and give credit where credit is due. The brother was sensational last night. He deserves all the props in the world. Because of it and cleveland is an entirely different team. When you're looking at it baker mayfield plays like that because we have to assume their defense is not going to speak as much as it stopped last night and allowed over two hundred and thirty yards rushing to baltimore. The browns have about a league average defense. Give or take maybe low average. But they got a good enough defense. And i have to give props to baker also. He was excellent the level of difficulty on some of those plays also. It was it was. It wasn't just getting lucky. It was intentional and with the money on the line. I love the way he was sitting there on the sidelines nodding after saw what lamar jackson did like. Okay you got it now. It's my turn and let them right down the field big time from baker. it just goes to show steven. I always say like in sports when you believe in a guy patients patients patients and just when you run out of patience more patients. I learned that lesson again with baker. Just when i was like okay. i'm done. He's now he's proving he's had four head coaches and just a little over two years no stability. He finally has somebody's clicking with head coach and he's very good now. I don't think the browns are the biggest threat to the chiefs. I don't think that that they are super bowl. Contenders in the sense that i would pick them to win the super bowl or be one of the five or six teams. I'd even pick. And here's the thing before we talk about. And i understand you mean styles matchup if you can run the ball and everything but really run the ball against the chiefs. It's not about the chiefs run defense so much as it is keeping patrick. Mahomes off the field. In fact the steelers time of possession is quite good kind of simulating a wrong with drinking dunking. Let me just say this about the brown. Everything you said about baker is true. You have every reason to be impressed as we all right. The fact of the matter. They lost the game. How many times have the browns the steelers or the ravens the two teams in their own division this year. The answer is not. They've lost to steelers twice to the ravens and wants to the steelers. They have a chance in the last game of the season to beat the steelers. I'll take the steelers right and so if you're the third best team in your own division with the money on the line. I can't consider you a super bowl contender unless you're in the best division of football and i also don't believe that's the case they'll still take the nfc west in spite of certain team struggles in that division recently so baker. The browns showed that they are a good and ascending team. That what i've been saying in fact you said it to get odell and baker away from each other when we were talking about trade odell beckham. It wasn't just peekers. No good odell needs to go to these two. Don't have chemistry and they're probably going to perform better separate than together. And i think baker showing you that he has a connection with jarvis landry spreading the ball around joe almost made maybe even should have made a catch on a nice drove from baker high level of difficulty but it was catchable so but he's spreading the ball around. The running game is working. The defense is good enough with odell away from him. Still is a good enough to beat the chiefs. It wasn't good enough to beat the ravens last night. One good enough to beat the ravens week. One it wasn't good enough to beat the steelers. The chiefs are better than both those teams. Well listen it was good enough to be indy. It was good enough to beat tennessee and we know both of those teams are capable of beating teams in in the afc number one number two. I'm glad you are. You illuminated the fact. I'm talking styles when i'm talking about the chiefs. We know that the browns up particularly at this point ain't on the chiefs level. But i'm just talking about styles of nick chubb and kareem hunt run the football and oh by the way you've got kareem hunt catching passes out of the backfield or what have you. That's something that can't be ignored as well. And how potent their offense could be again if baker mayfield plays that way and they run the football effectively. Those are the kind of things that happened. The other thing that. I wanted to say the both u. n. Molly is this I think it was in november of two thousand and eighteen. It was a monday night game. It was the chiefs and the los angeles. Rams i was at that game. I was in the sweet. You can appreciate this max. I was in the suite for espn la radio. They had a suite on in the end zone on the field. I was at that game with my brother in law and my brother jeff and the whole bit my boy jeff and the whole bit is the greatest game that i've ever been a part of in the nfl. I to be there. It was spectacular. Last night might have been. Maybe the greatest. Monday night football game. We've seen because remember that particular game with the rams and the chiefs. Patrick mahomes threw for six touchdowns but he also threw three interceptions. He threw for over four hundred year. Plus shots jared goff threw for over one hundred plus yards. Patrick mahomes three and exceptions last night. Watch these two teams go back and forth the way that they did. It was something special. It really really was and and i look at cleveland day. A little bit differently because of how they came back in that fourth quarter and how they tried to handle their business the differences the chiefs and the rams back then were considered. That was a super bowl. Everyone wanted to see those were the two best offenses in the world and in the rams case they also had a defense i i would say most people at that moment were thinking rams over chiefs in the super bowl and this is a taste. Here's a preview so the stakes were hired. This was more about getting the browns. The little brother in the division on their on its way up. Hold off a desperate ravens team that has struggled recently right and the answer was no. They played. Well they're heading in the right direction in so far their moral victories in the nfl. That was one for the browns and for baker mayfield but in the end the ravens not only got the moral victory of lamar jackson coming in on fourth down and completing the forty four yard. Play to score the go ahead touchdown but then four completions to get them in field goal range after baker went right back down so the ravens not only got the moral victory they got the actual w which they need to get into the playoffs. This year i think the game you rat was actually higher. Stakes.

"Just a little different guys than the first time they've played in week one. What's going on everybody into i take right. Thank you for being with us stephen. A max Molly guys let's get right into one one of the best games of the year so exciting. Lamar leaves Cleveland closing the gap. And then lamar with some late game heroics to get. The job done stephanie. What did he proved to you last night. Lamar jackson absolutely nothing. Improve anything to me. What were we surprised bot He caught a cramp he said came back out through that forty. Four yard touchdown. Pass the marquees brown. Hollywood brown deserves a lot of credit. But let's face reality. Lamar jackson was sensational. Because we saw him do things that no one else can do from the quarterback position when it comes to running the football and he definitely deserves profit that you were four for four and a final drive. We understand what your second the last drive. If i remember correctly the guy was sensational last night. Please don't get me wrong. But what i saw from. Lamar jackson is what i expect to see a guy that is electrifying running the football. And you that leaves you standing there all by saying to yourself. Excuse me if this brother ever gets to a point where he could be sixty percent seventy percent of himself throwing a football as well as he is at running the football then this would be an mvp compensation each and every single year for the foreseeable future because he's that electrify running the football. But in the end. When i see this guy. I do say to myself. Excuse me there was a big chunk of this game with him. Throwing the football wasn't necessarily there. He wasn't that adroit at it. So in the end when i look at it i'd say lamar jackson is dead duties. Electric findings patacula. We all know he's a game changing etc etc. But are you gonna let him run for one hundred and twenty four yards in the postseason. You might not be able to prevent that. But in the event that you force them to throw the football. Is he going to be able to do that effectively for you. That's still left a question mark for me what what happened to you what what happened to you. Along the way. Stephen a smith i remember when you were a a tabloid writer. Top tablet just refers to the size of the print in the paper. Everyone who grows up. Who grew on era red. We talking she works brought she. Okay yeah right. Oh excuse me. fill in philadelphia. I'm referring to the daily news. The point is i remember stephen. A smith one of the great things about reading stephen a smith was. He saw the big picture. Everyone else's quibbling about the little stuff and they see the little and they're missing the big picture stephen as saw the big picture and encapsulated. It spun it forward. Stephen a smith coming out here talking about all the little details to actually don't matter today. What matters today stephen. Of course lamar. Jackson proves something last night. That was a game with nine rushing touchdowns in an era passing passing passing nine rushing touchdowns when lamar comes back into the game misses. The fourth quarter gets the ball on fourth down. The first time he touches the ball its fourth down and completes of forty four. Your your best escapes pressure. Rolls out uses. His legs keeps his eyes down the field and throws a forty four yard strike for a touchdown to give the ravens the lead. And you wanna talk about the fact. That he to willis reed moment. I know stephen that this is not. The playoffs puts a big game. It's a monday night. Football game against the cleveland browns. Who are ascending in the division right. Now they're in the playoffs not the ravens at least heading into the game and then after throwing the forty four yard strike baker mayfield. Leads them right back down the field. Now how does it team respond to that. Damn the other guy just did it. You even saw baker nodding on the sidelines. Like okay i gotta do it. I'm going to get this done. And the maturity and development of baker. He was really on display an after doing. That was the team demoralized. There's like a minute to go. Lamar jackson's gotta get us into field. Goal range got great field goal kicker but still four completions to get them into field goal range so you mean to tell me lamar jackson who can't pass when it matters. Who can't beat the big team under the spotlight. I've said that who uses his legs but can get it done with. His arm comes in on fourth down fourth and five those a forty four yard strike for touchdown you lead and then instead of being demoralized. The team obviously is energized. By him for completions you're in field goal range and you win the game and today stephen. A smith wants to come out and quibble about the fact that they ran the ball. What happened well. I'm not quite a well. First of all you're not hearing my point but there's nothing new there. I know it's hard you to comprehend way. I'm coming from because i don't say whoops when i'm wrong and move forward like i never was wrong. I acknowledge it. But here's the reality situation. When you look at lamar jackson when you look at lamar jackson max. Kellerman that coming into the playoffs. Last year. I took the same position that i'm taking. Now it was you that was raving about what he had been doing against everybody in the regular season and i kept telling you. Excuse me when you play the quarterback position. If you're gonna make things happen you've got to be able to throw the football so everything that i'm going to analyze dissect about you is going to be based off of that premise particularly when it's coupled with expectations that precede the season so coming into the season. We're looking at the baltimore ravens were and they're gonna win the afc north. Obviously they fallen off a little. Bit pittsburg steelers surprised everybody. They go out to eleven straight wins to start the season. We see the baltimore ravens. Have some trouble we know some of it was due to covid nineteen and beyond we get all of that but we also saw lamar jackson who suffered real symptoms from covid nineteen. We understand it. Because i think he slept like ten straight days. According to the report and what happened he was really really feeling the effects of it. And if we're gonna look cam new and say some residual effects from that might have affected his plate. We can definitely so surmise. That the same could be possible. Lamar jackson but in the end we have two postseason losses. In as many appearances to fall back on we have as electrifying running ability but his inability to throw the football effectively to fall back on. So when i look at him last night and taking the roic said late-game assad because we have to acknowledge that that did happen. I'm looking at. The vast majority of this game was predicated on his ability to run the football and baltimore ability to run a football because they ran over two hundred and thirty yards last night against this cleveland browns squad so when i look at it from perspective what i'm doing is imagining defense. That could lock in on you in a fashion that forces you to be a thrower and i'm asking myself could lamar jackson that we see in a regular season delivered at. I'm saying i still haven't seen that yet. And that's what i'm looking at. That's all i'm doing. I'm not taking anything away from the greatness that he obviously hazardous disposal. I'm simply saying if this guy if he can be this guy. Come postseason top. We've got a discussion. I don't know if that's possible yet. Well that's fair stephen. I'll just say this. The question for lamar. Jackson can't prove that he can win in the playoffs during the regular season. It's not a playoff game. What can he do but monday night. Football game when you're in the eighth slot and only seven teams are getting there in a team you're chasing in your own division who you beat the hell out of week one but it's come up in the world is you've fallen coming off of covert as you've in pittsburgh the game on the line coming in with cramps fourth quarter fourth down and doing what he did because he touched like those five completions right like the touchdown pass in the four to get him in field goal range to me that.

"I don't I don't Pat Shurmur and drew lock three styling don't fit together to me I mean I think he did a nice job with the vikings okay. But I still remember Pat Shurmur being hanged by Michael Lombardi for like people calling up. Lombardi. Saying Whenever Watch you know Pat Shurmur offenses I know what's happening? By looking at the formation one second. So is this? Can he do? I. Think what you want with all this talent question, right? It's he's the right guy I don't know I think sales start slow because of what Dan said. Too I. Think they are. They could be particularly hurt by the pandemic but the offensive line especially on the interior does look better. It's always been a weakness. They don't really have a right tackle after John James opted out. But that's always been a pretty big weakness for this team and on paper they look like they could be a lot better than reisner look great as a rookie You know they brought in a quality starter in Glasgow and they have a rookie center cushenberry that that people seem to love. So they could be better up. One concern with Bradley. Chubb just keep an eye on it. He left the scrimmage early when that surgically repaired knee acted up. He said he didn't feel right right They said it's not serious but not good. Oakland excuse me the Las Vegas. Mark Chesler Kind of remind me a little bit of the broncos because I look at the raiders I'm like I can talk myself into seeing them as a wildcard team if things went right I, think route. Is Fine Mike Mayock is kick. Some butt is GM got Henry Rugs Darren Waller Josh Jacobs. So you can kind of see it coming together as a Frisky AFC entry but then I also look at like the Games that they totally blew last season like when I went up. Into Watch them play the Jaguars in a historically important final game in Oakland, and they totally blew it by being way too safe and conservative and not seizing the moment, and now they got good by the officials in that game we all know it. Bounce play when they started, it is the quarterback in the way of his style of play I'm sorry that capped a four game losing streak down the stretch where they were outscored one, hundred, thirty, six to forty nine. So I just don't think they're all there yet I mean they've just as easily feel like an eight nate side piece to me but I think, Greg, thanks are a little frisky does anyone Weeping giant what? These. Signed peace. Of the NFL. Like. Minded keep them hidden. Team, you take out on Saturday night a little you keep them in the shadows right mark that they were like a five and eleven team that won a couple extra games more than they should last year they really weren't a good team, but there are very different team now, I mean whether these transactions worker or not. This is a very young team. They're having their rookies play a lot. They're having their second year players play a lot the free agent pickups that they had trayvon mullins their number one cornerback right now after they cut AMUKAMARA. On Monday their county on these region linebackers is this a totally different team it's a good looking offense of line I kind of want to believe in this tight end crew and the running back they're going to have a lot of heavy sets or just GonNa be zigging while everyone's zagging and I I at least like that for a little diversity on my on my Sunday view we. Do you believe in the quarterback. No I believe he's like an eight and eight side piece I. Guess Are you basically? Eight made by the way with an extra playoff spot. But actually gets you into January seventy, nine, nine I think there are nine when type of team though I because I do think that there's so much room to improve on defense that they should that even if they're like the twentieth best defense man that would be a big improvement for them and do their offense can be pretty good. They're on their offense to be a top ten offense. would be a disappointment what linebacking crew improved more than the Las Vegas one. I mean Cory Littleton era. West is you know man crush that's a good little pairing right there. Kelsey Yeah Is.

"The rest of that with any other position. Disappointing I mean if Marla Mac doesn't do well Jonathan Taylor there. Michael, Pittman isn't there Zach Paskal. who had a pretty good year? Is there I mean they've got options if if guys don't Pan. Out. Entirely, hinging on Philip rivers too. I mean I think if he's just not a turnover. A lot of different things right. A lot of things hinges on for this is the Max out here real quickly, I think that this is another team were Frank Reich Chris Ballard the pairing of them is is just very they're in unison it's very hopeful and you you can't really look past the human side of football and how they overcame what happened with Andrew Luckier ago I mean it's like this. This is a tough it's a tough organization I like this I like the kind of style of football I think they're gonNA they're gonNA run on offense and with a seventh playoff spot if they're not a playoff team, Indianapolis got hit by an asteroid. I have we sent in those picks I had the winning the Super Bowl just because I wanted to pick something that would be fun to root for and I think they're they're one of those teams outside the top five most likely that have a shot. A lot of things have to go right as as Dan mentioned but rivers is camp had positive reviews that it's like he looks like a guy who's been in that offense before it's mostly. It's not a surprise he has been in that office that's what I mean and t y Hilton. He's he to me is the jungle I mean 'cause when he's right, he's a top five type of receiver and right now they're connection. You can see that working like him and Keegan and Alan Rivers Keenan Allen back in the day but Helton's gotta stay right and I I think I think the upside is there the downside is eight in an I get that but I think they could be a three seed that has the magical run they go through. Kansas City on the road of the play offs because there's no crowd anger, there are three and five. The backup gets back in a while now. Anyway now. It's back in really. Supposedly, he hasn't looked good and ugly week-to-week League. Aright, close it out in the division accessory. Tennessee titans. I didn't speaking of you know going into Baltimore and going into Kansas City Tennessee's playoff magic from a year ago fell a little short but was one of the more enjoyable developments that I can recall in a long time and I think the question for me I feel like with as much as any team in the AFC we almost have to look at the titans and say, here's how they get back. They get back by the masterful Arthur Smith. Needing his two dudes Derrick Henry and Ryan Tannehill and we spent weeks wondering which which one will keep the kept both and they it's almost muir. I think last year success I don't feel like this offense is built in a way to suddenly hey, let's shift gears and be like an air raid offense or roll out like the run-and-shoot with miles, Davis, like they are who they are, and we're asking Henry and Tannahill to kind duplicate, and that's me feels very difficult for both of those guys. It's just a lot to ask and their defense always to me they were feisty but they feel a little anonymous on that side of the ball still. Titans to me right in the mix but I last year restored sort magical. It can magic duplicated self. I think that's a fair question. I don't think you can count on everything going. So perfectly on offense for instance, there's no way they're play action attack is going to be as effective as it was last year it was just. It was abnormally effective to me. They improvement has to come on the other side of the ball and the two, thousand, seventeen, eighteen and nineteen first round picks. You need a door a Jackson to be a pro bowl cornerback you need rashawn Evans. At inside Linebacker to be a tackling machine and he had one of the most impressive goal line stands I've ever seen last year in the playoffs and you need Jeffrey Simmons. To Make Durell Casey and afterthought and Jeffrey Simmons is talented enough to do it to me. Those guys I have to be absolutely stars not just solid starters. It's a fair point because when you look at the names, there is a chance as defense gets better they lost their defensive coordinator. So little unclear how they're gonNA call plays whether it'd be able or what they're gonNA do but Malcolm Butler actually played better for them last year like he's not a bad starting corner you have Kenny Vaccaro Assad, you have Kevin fired. In the secondary, like you need a little more pass rush from hair landry or VIC Beasley. But add up all those names he said with the young guys like there is a top ten defense upside. We haven't seen it since variables been there and the I agree that's what they need. -cause. Tannehill is GONNA slide back. It's just like how much is he sliding back to like a solid above average starter I think he can do that he's not gonna be a top five starter against this too crazy to expect Derek Henry's less. Let's call it twenty two, twenty three games that have been as good as any running backs we've seen in some time is that sustainable I mean the abuse he takes the what they ask him. Maybe he's still young is maybe he still has another two, three, four years and tank, but that's another question mark will he be able to sustain that? Court, Love My..

"Are you doing your self a disservice to the point where you ruin your franchise by standing by the guy, you miss your super bowl window because he stood by the Guy All right. Let's now get into. The around the AFC format once again. West. Let's hit the Jaguars now suddenly without. Any of their well-known guys from the past. I don't think it's an apples to apples comparison because the Jaguars have tried to strengthen the roster they've gone out and sign some veterans to fill some holes. But this is the closest thing this year obviously to the two, thousand, nineteen dolphins where. We're unloading veterans who we don't see could have a future with us. They won't be a part of our next winning team. So my question is what constitutes a success for the two thousand and twenty Jaguars. I would say this real quick it's west. It's funny I wrote the words Organic Jag tank because I feel the same way that that they are they're running that that go down that road right now I think you need to because you're probably going to be the number one or two pick right you have to find out what you had and Gardner Men's shoe an to a to the point of sticking with the wrong quarterback if Gardner minhsiu is just a really serviceable fun. Backup. You need to know that by the end of the year and not make the mistake of not getting the best quarterback out there and staying in the same. Dark. Territory that they've been for. So long I think you have to evaluate the most important position on your roster and aggressively go fix it next off season. I think you hit on picks in in your young players played better I. Don't think they could be a little feisty on offense mentioned his moments I, think the receivers are are pretty good. The offensive line is stable and. That hasn't been case. I mean, they have their starters back. I think it's having those young players viscous Chenault? Josh Allen you know the first round pick this year. Was it Chason CJ Henderson them and they had a couple of first round picks this year those guys playing miles Jack was a guy they thought they were going to build around coming off a pretty rough year. So it's like some of these young guys stepping up in the offense being feisty I don't necessarily think they're the number one pick it wouldn't. It wouldn't surprise me if they have dolphin like season where Their fifth or sixth in the draft in Derek certainly rosters out there. I think that are just as bad or worse. I just say on paper like they get concerned about if you WANNA talk about like a corona risk team, one of these teams where the coach is not part of the future he's using the players they start one and eight. Your Derarta people are out partying saying, forget this whole thing I mean that is when you get in you step into a stickier scenario. Feels like Gardiner. Menchu's in an impossible spot because even if he is. I mean, I don't I have a different view on his ceiling than other people on the show but even if he's pretty good if you're running this organization, you're probably GonNa want to do the bengals thing here or what teams have been doing forever is like we need to reboot we need a new face of the franchise and as cute as Gardner is with this floppy hair and his social media stuff like you probably WanNa, get the number one hotshot out there and say, this is our guy we're starting over and he's the face of it feel like that's where this is all headed. Table and up. Four, maybe it'll be the quarterback next year mark you know workout. As it keeps that floppy hair. All right. All right. Let's continue now to roll through the AFC South Greg Houston Texans. The Texans, gave Zach Cunningham inside linebacker big contract. Over the weekend. And it got me thinking about this roster and I like Cunningham he's one of the best run stoppers and legal though they have to highly paid inside linebacker, which is weird. Two, thousand one to probably get rid of Bernard Kenny I think it's a fine signing, but it reminds me this is not a young team partly because they haven't had dramatic partly because they haven't hit on their graphics like their hope this year. And this is a dangerous spot to be is just like the veterans they have after be available and better. It's like because because those veterans are pretty good Jj Watt is number one among them I mean there are a totally different team when he's either but Whitney Mercilus is another guy bill O'Brien the GM gave a huge contract too late last season after one of his worst seasons he was not a good pass. rusher. Last year, they gave Laremy Tunsil, a huge contract smart people say he's one of the best in the league. I guess he is he also the most penalties of any left tackle in leagues. You want him to be even better to be to be dominant. You want will fuller to be healthy to be dominant. You want the Shawn Watson if it's possible to go up another tier because it is possible I mean. He's he's only entering what year four or five a couple now away from ACL, Justin Reed played through an injury i. think he's a really impressive player at safety. So it's a bunch of guys who are veterans who just saying you're already really good if these guys are all better like those guys are pro bowlers and this team has a lot to deal with it in a division where there's really no big favourite. They they have been, and they continue to be a particularly shallow team right that wins a week division because they have stars at the top. And it reminds me of like the cowboys ten years ago. When they had the star power names but if they have an injury or two, then you're in trouble. And on top of it to your point that the veterans need to show up and be great now. Next year is another year where they don't have a first or second round pick. You don't pick till the third. It's like there isn't you're not really there's not a real easy way to add an injection of young talent and build the way good teams do which is through the draft I mean it it's an interesting team because of cause of Bob's unpredictability around the trade deadline. I, still think that they will do some freaky stuff this year but there no proof that this plan works. Yeah, and O'Brien got killed obviously off-season even as a longtime Bob defender I couldn't. But I also think it's premature. Especially, we're talking about a division feels wide open to think that this team will be right back. There will fuller to me is the Django copies of the DAMASEC Jhangvi because he's so talented. So good if his body just held up, he can end up putting up numbers that eclipse what the Andre Hopkins. Did last year I has that level ceiling. Every wide receiver on their team is like if his body just own brandin cooks, Randall Cobb cooks, he could take. Along, those same lines, let's talk about the colts because I understand why being contingent of cults colts hyper optimists out there exist Philip rivers is the old star. qb With to prove you have a smart proven offensive minded head coach, the dominant offensive line and intriguing intriguing rookie running back a veteran number. One wideout still has juice in untested but promising second round pick at. Number Three whiteout spots and Michael Pittman Paris. Campbell. The ceiling here for the colts is as high as any team outside the chiefs on offense for me But how often do teams with that many factors that needs to go right does it actually all click? That's where I'm skeptical that everything clicks for the colts. If it does look out, they're gonNA go twelve and four this year, but a lot has to go right Well here's what they have gone for them. Even, if things don't go right, they have depth because they've drafted and signed really well, the organization associate the structure is sound. To me outside of Philip rivers disappointing, you can get by with the rest of that with any other position. Disappointing I mean if Marla Mac doesn't do well Jonathan Taylor there. Michael, Pittman isn't there Zach Paskal. who had a pretty good year? Is there I mean they've got options if if guys don't Pan. Out. Entirely, hinging on Philip rivers too. I mean I think if he's just not a turnover..

"That's not his game and I don't know that this scenario or the way the seasons played out is in the best. Interest of his success amounts I wonder what the dimmers! I just WanNa I. Just went into up Charlie Perspective Buddha think actually has more pressure on them. l., ASC or the Galaxy the Galaxy. and has been constantly you don't you don't think that if L. AFC don't win this, they're going to keep your in it from no, I don't think. I! I think the galaxy just because you have pavone Cheeto, you have though Santa's. You have these guys, and it's really comes down to atone, and she thereto, because below can create frigerio key career for himself. He's the most dynamic offensive player in the galaxy have. But you're not gonNA see chemistry between Pavonis and thereto until they get games. In a tournament style you don't have the time to adjust its results now now now so if they get going and game three and they lose gave wanted to. It doesn't matter. So for me, it's the galaxy that have all the pressure going into this because they're supposed to be one of the big dogs yet. They haven't been performing there. There's no chemistry between those their top players in the team I mean I would argue the timbers may have a similar problem yet have Hilarion Blanco, but with Chara with these are more or a bogus. You got as much time as maybe he's wanted. They might have that issue as well. The thing I'd say what you said Davis I trust their back line. I trust their midfield, not sure. That from the galaxy at this point. WHO's the player to watch for you guys? Who is the one in this group that that you got your eye on But you really WANNA. See I mean for me. I'M GONNA. Go obvious. I'm going to say Carlos Vela, because his level of dominance last year in large part like made the season. You know what I mean he was the story La were the story and the Big Question Mark About Twenty twenty was. Would Carlos Vela be that same flair? Would he be able to take over games? Would he be just out of this world? Production Wise Would L. AFC does run people over another. Another in this different alternative world that said no way the same where they've had to sit around for three months and think about it have to sacrifice a little bit as layers in his staff and go to Orlando and be away from their families. How much will that affect them? I think that's part of the things that we're not talking about. Charlie you, said Yeah you have thirty five days to focus on one thing, but there will be distractions, and that distraction is that you're not with your family and friends. You're not in the place that you're most comfortable and I. Wonder How that will affect the player like Carlos. Vela! WHO's always? SEND ME TO ORLANDO FOR MY? Banking by telling you right now. If I'm playing right now I got twins. I got a wife. I have family that I love so dearly. But if you're telling me with everything going on I, get to go to Orlando and just play focused on playing nothing I. Don't have to worry about anything else. All in it. I'm lost. Because I could I could take all those distractions out wants to win some playing. Don't even base. So don't even try your ignored. He's based I'm trying to play. I'm trying to win games here. Yes, stop it. Stop it no focus. There's no distractions. I would say this group though..

"Need after that you know this. The offensive tackle classes interesting. Not Great. It's one of those groups where I think there's such a drop off after the first four or five guys that I think they'll get as we say overdrafted generic wills to me from Alabama's is the best offensive tackle in this class. That based off of the tape that I've studied so far. And then you go to you know Tristan Tristan wharfs from Iowa. Josh Jones Pipers offers guy from Houston. MCI Becton From Louisville Andrew Thomas from Georgia in no particular order. But those are some the names that you you could hear. When the dolphins pick with their second pick I think in the first round and then you know what's available edge? What's available linebacker? We'll we'll have to wait and see but I I think zag bond is one of those players. It's a possibility Patrick Queen from Lsu. I thought was absolutely dominant during the the SEC championship game and the playoffs would would be a possibility later in the first round as well yeah last the NFL and Sachs died for last S. in the NFL in sacks allowed last in rushing yards twenty-seventh in rushing yards allow. So we'll talk about all the positions involved in getting those horrific stats You can pretty much go anywhere you want. So Miami is a team. That's got a lot of work to do and it's going to be interesting. Those first round picks Mika deal that make fitzpatrick deal. Didn't want the bad thing for the Pittsburgh steelers. Eighteenth pick which I'd rather have the eighteenth pick our MINKA from Pittsburgh everybody thought that was a horrible trade turned out to be pretty good this year though for the dolphins right. I mean if you're going to rebuild an organization and you've got three potential top ten quarterbacks you can debate it all you want and there are different opinions. But if you need a quarterback and you've needed one for this long and you bring in Josh Rosen and you whether you like them or not Miami clearly hit. It's not his guy. It's not their guy. So you've got picks five eighteen in twenty-six twenty six. You've been Kinda building and pushing it off to this point if you don't nail this draft I don't I don't see the dolphins having success success in the near future and this is this is the time I mean. This is the time to strike the bills. Maybe have their quarterback moving forward. We can debate that later. The Patriots are finally in a transition if you're dolphins fan or any other fan in the AFC East you finally have a shot to like maybe potentially actually overtake the the Bell Check Rain and so this is the year you've got strike with five eighteen and twenty six so it's it's hard hard to. It's hard to overlook how important this draft is for the dolphins for any of these organizations but especially the dolphins who have been planning thing for this year specifically and you know the thing that stands out to me. Is We look at the. We look at the dolphins and we say three first round picks all right. You're going to get something Anthony Mel. Let's let's do a little throwback to a handful of years ago Cleveland Browns. Two straight years have two first round picks. You're going to load up upright Justin Gilbert Johnny Manziel one year. And you get Danny Shelton in camera nerve in the next year. I mean if you don't mail these you just you are where the browns are. And it's amazing because you know. I think that the Oakland Raiders. Now the LAS vegas writers last year had a really productive first round. But if you don't hit these if you don't hit we'll have a couple shots cow setback. It is because it's todd said this was the plan and this was your year. You had it all lined up. Yeah Yeah Yeah Jimmy Johnson that said if you watch any pieces with Jimmy Johnson. NFL Network and when they do those shows it's the he says it again. He said when we had our draft meetings that you can have all the pictures you want you better make those picks. Count the Oakland Raiders. And still be the Las Vegas raiders now still to be determined with Farrell Pharrell as early as he went Josh Allen had more sacks he's coming off the edge Abrahams got to stay healthy. You know we don't know hurt so that's two of your three first round picks rex. Hi Josh Jacobs a really good running back at the end of the first round. We'll see on the other guys but I don't WanNa act like that was an a plus draft quite yet because we still have still questions to be answered there but so certainly for for where Miami is the chance is there. It seems like they have the right head coach. The team seems like they've bought in and and they played hard and they didn't quit when I think now to say okay we've defined. We still have the right coach. He's pliers obviously the last to get a lot better. We'll we'll sit down. We'll be assessing this draft three four years down the road but this is the draft is GonNa make or break whether Miami can keep up because there's other teams two of those teams. Have Great Young quarterback ask Josh Allen. Sam Darnold a great young quarterbacks and people can take shots at darnold all they want shots and all they want but internally you can rest assured that the buffalo bills in New York jets feel they have they. I wonder if they feel they have their new. England does not and Miami Right now does not and this is that I mean. That's why the dolphins it so important for them. This year you Brian floors is a really good football coach and and we all know that and and we saw that as it is the continued to develop later in the year. Last year. Chris Career I believe is a very good evaluator as the general manager. But what is it. They've got to come together and they've got to find the right guy and they've got to make a decision to like all these draft picks that we have including as we mentioned three in the first round round. Are we gonNA package some of them to move up or as history tells us should we stay put and and try to just play the numbers game the odds game and take three players in the in the first round and and take advantage of all these picks that we have because listen five. Sounds good good and it's great to have to a but to comes with injury history and I would rather have three picks than to package a couple of them to move up three spots to make sure that we go get to it to be quite honest and just put a bow on the dolphins before we jump to a team up the coast here. Miami's going to enter free agency with ninety four million dollars dollars in cap space pretty loaded up so you know as you mentioned Chris Greer. He's going to have a lot of work to do before they ever get to. These three first round picks but a team team that they're fortunes could change dramatically next year. We won't know what to really truly make the two thousand nine hundred and New York jets season because apparently mono is alive and well in the NFL. And Sam Darnold came down with it. But Mel one thing I do know is that Sam. Donald didn't have much chance when he was healthy. Because this offensive line was really bad. And there's a really easy way to say well no. This wasn't just some young quarterback who was holding onto the ball too long asked Leon Bell about that offensive line because lady on couldn't do anything Sam couldn't do anything Sam's actually probably more mobile noble than people realize tested pretty well. He's a good athlete. I mean it all starts up. Front Cantata both mocked offense of lime in various forms to the jets. Is there any way kind kind of a re to hide from that with. I guess free agency being one option but as we know there isn't just like a stack of great left tackles hanging around on and free agency every year. Now it's a two year building process for the jet so you can't get it all done this one season I think they're probably targeting two thousand twenty two two thousand twenty season where you try to do some things up front to get that group better you got to for darnold health and his ability to get confidence and the team to feel good about him Wide Receiver Edge. rusher corner. I mean they have some work to do on both sides of the ball. But I gotta believe Todd it begins Upfront. That's where the rebuilding and the building of this football team has to start and you try to fill in those pieces and fill those holes the rest of this draft free agency and certainly next year but I think the offensive tackle spot if there is one like wills like Tristan worse. Iowa Thomas from Georgia's still there Becton Louisville was still there I would think offensive tackle there and then to try to figure out the rest as we move forward down the draft. What's going to be interesting? Is They pick it eleven. And it's the only first round pick that they have Joe Douglas. The general manager grew up under newsom and Ozzy was one of the best in the in the business for for so many years. Managing the draft. Either being patient and waiting for it to come to them or or moving back and taking advantage of teams that are you know now that are just panicking on draft day to move up. And maybe that's you know maybe that's for for Herbert's at the quarterback position. Maybe it's different position but I'll be interested to see if joe and the staff decide to stick it eleven and take a guy like Jack Wills if he's still there and I think as I said before for wills to me coming out Alabama's the best offensive tackle. I've seen so far on tape after that. I think there's a little bit of a drop off but there are three or four other guys is and I think you mentioned all their names that are gonna wind up going in the first round. So do you move back or do you take a wills of you sitting there at eleven. Maybe it's an edge edge rusher maybe Kahlon Chason who some teams like a lot more than others the Lsu Edge rusher is it Cj Henderson the cornerback. who had had some injury issues and didn't have the best season last year but is has a chance to be outside of in my opinion Jeffer- Kura outside of Ohio L. State I think could be the probably the second best corner in this class so my point is what is Joe? Do in terms of sitting at eleven or moving back. Don't expect them to move up and what's available at eleven will be really interesting to see but those are the positions it's offensive line edge. Rusher cornerback and then I think on the second day you go back to the offensive line probably in the interior guys like Cesar Ruiz I duNno senator from Michigan Matt Hennessy. The Offensive Offensive Lineman from temple guys like that that are gonNA come in and be able to contribute right away. Maybe don't have the greatest. Upside is Interior Offensive Lineman but this organization wants tough guys and they want leaders and they need that upfront to try to protect this. This quarterback who in my opinion Sam. I'm Donald could be one of the elite quarterbacks in the NFL if he gets protection and then you obviously have a great running back in bell. So you've gotta find a way to to bolster this offensive line in order to make this team special and to make that next step. I think back when they were able to get the two offense lineman early and you think about it Where they are right? Now you mentioned Cesar Ruiz I think release the most wanted more underrated linemen in this draft. Right there with Tyler Biaggi the more I watched them. Todd guy moves well for for a big guy. He's played guard early on then he was a senator. The last two years pass protection. Great kid hard worker. I think he's a a guy that you could make a strong argument center in this draft and be outages. Really good player. Should see how they'll test out when we get the apples on a couple of weeks but I think reason round two. If you got becton say and I go back. You mentioned Joe. Douglas and the Raven Connection Phil Savage also working with the jets now. Jonathan Ogden was the cornerstone. He was what six nine and and now you've got a guy like Beckton. Was that the dancing bear with his size. I think if you could get MCI Becton at eleven and come back with Ruis I think Dick. You're coming on your basically your solidifying potentially an offensive line at the key spots the anchor and the left tackle spot for the next ten years and this is the first draft. Don't forget for for Joe Douglas and savage in this entire group you know. They came in after last year's draft. Quinn Williams with defensive tackles the first pick. They didn't pick again. I think until the third round with Jakob polite which they missed on And then later in the third round so really. Last year's class was is not what you needed to have. If you're trying to rebuild this organization and the first two picks were on the on the defensive side of the ball so you you've gotTa Outta my guess is that you've got to really focus on that offensive front whether it's you know two of the first three or to the first four picks you gotta how to really bolster at the and also it could be free agency as well and you know todd you you said something about Sam darnold being able to be one of the one of the great quarterbacks in this league potentially you know I can hear some people Well you know we've seen a couple of years. I just want to point something out. Sam Darnold is twenty two. He won't be twenty only three until this summer. After this draft in Sam Donald has played behind a bad offensive line. And it's GONNA come down with mono and maybe the best wide receiver he's been able to throw to his Robbie Anderson who's a free agent so the idea that Sam darnold a guy who's two years younger than Andy Dalton was when he was drafted has somehow leveled off at somebody. I think is absolutely crazy. I think there's a huge upside here if they can protect at all if they can run the.

"About that it's been done to. La Did it last year. But it's not easy breath if you've got to go with San Francisco did deepens and their running game both both components which is real. It's a problem New Orleans. Losing this game puts them in line not to have home turf and as a result. I think that's where it's can I ask you one thing they've been the only shore bet we felt like this whole season obviously we talked about parody and NFL. But really. I'm not trying to be cliche. Are they even a sure. Bet Now at this point as a locked to the Super Bowl Oh oh no because the NFC we came into this season saying this is going to be the best NFL season in a long time because of the parody so no they're not a lot. There's still one of the three or four best teams in the NFL. Stephen took my points because two things could be true. This is a brutal loss for them. The Falcons when it comes to home field advantage on a night when Green Bay and Minnesota one it is a brutal loss that being said it is not a loss that exposes them or kind of shows their flaws or whatever you know how many times drew brees in Sean Payton the home of scored less than ten points. One happened yesterday like something happened yesterday. That has never happened in their relationship more or time together. So that's why like they were just bad. They couldn't get off the field on third down lattimore out I. T's eleven penalties. They couldn't stay on the field on third down offensively so yes the Moody. You Chuck it up Jamie Fox movie any given day Jamie Fox I prefer to say Al Pacino I would have to say I. I always tease about that. Data fell Al Pacino. Brother Bill Bellamy the way. And let's not forget these. You're talking about any given Sunday. This is what you look at when I say it's just one of these freaky things and Sean Payton's a great coach vote vote. We're GONNA be in the hall of fame like all these kinds of things and and like all the penalties right like every single facet of the game. They were favored by thirteen and a half. They lost by seventeen gene. That is a swing of almost four touchdowns and a field goal. That's four to like the swing between what we thought was going to happen. And what happened that even freaky kind of NFL season usually. It's not a four touchdown plus difference what we thought three things. This is Stephen. As point is important when it comes to home field because this this is one of those games where you go into week seventeen of the NFL season in. Everyone's going to be talking about going. You remember that game. They lost at home that they have to win this week to secure cure homefield advantage or maybe won't even matter accent. They have to hold on both. y'All I'm GonNa go to your point to point even more repeatedly you have lamented the fact that this two different sales teams one. That's at home and I wanted to on the road because the saints team has shows up on a row particularly pivotal games. Is it the same as the one we customarily see in that dome in New Orleans so now we amp that up. What are we talking about if you go to green bay talking about? But I'm not thinking about Minnesota 'cause that's a dome and even though it's a road game it's still a doll dreadful you tale. What I'm saying is what you're talking about Green Bay you're talking about inclement weather or freezing temperatures and having to go up against Amerada with improved efficient talking about going against San Francisco? We all know that when you look at New Orleans even though we did suspect that they were susceptible to the seventy one to two run in the first half yesterday but we look at them and we say okay you gotta go up against the run game and you got to go up against an elite defense on. The road does a to address that. Let me address that you know. Run the ball all. Stop the run. Can you do those things if you can run the ball and you can stop the run you can play on the road and especially obviously indicates that your defense is playing with passion upfront.

He did not throw a pass. Td Dan to hear still with us. Max I want to start with saints losing this game big deal or no big deal no big deal freaky stuff happens in the NFL a couple times a year at least usually around this time of year when you really feel like all right. We're past the midway point. We know what we're looking at. Here's a great team was undefeated with bridgewater. Then breeze comes back Atkins like Whoa. Now it's next level. They have a run defense. Usually the dynamic offenses don't right they have everything you need the depth. Not just like the colts had death but the depth where the high end performs are elite. Chimeras come into everything come on and then they lose to one of the worst teams in football. I know the code and I know Quinn's on the hot seat but like that's one of the worst teams in football they don't have some stellar defense there at home breezed get sacked half a dozen times. Kamera gets nothing got. How often do you think that's going to happen now? I know what to divisional gain. Hey divisional rivalries. If anything this was as it turns out it was a trap game. They got they got outplayed. Latest Sean Payton said afterwards in every facet of the game including outcoached. This is probably what they needed. I'm not worried about the saints. They'll be fine. You should be worried. And here's the reason. Why a couple of reasons number one that left God I mean I think it's Austin Pedo? I think it has his name. They will clouds. They give it three sacks between them. They didn't protect drew. BREES got sex. Six Times that's some vulnerability that's number one number two. He used the deal. You can say they just took it for granted. Atlantic comes into the game one and seven. But these are the Atlanta Falcons. This is it. This is the number one rivalry for New Orleans. You Get up for this game the fact that you did it in this particular situation. I'll give a damn what they you recognize that there's very little things that they love. More than beating. Up The falcons of that right now. It matters to those folks. I was at the Super Bowl last year for crying out. ALLOW BETWEEN NEW ENGLAND AND LA IN ATLANTA. Let me tell you a whole bunch of people rolling in Atlanta Women Saints Jerseys and you got a whole bunch. Look to folks in the land. The have major major major problems. That stuff is real down. That's number two number three. What are we said about the New Orleans Saints and I noticed Kamara game backing Lee had about four cares for about twenty four yards? Something like that. He'll get it going. Drew brees was dipping and Dunkin. Only do one pass for about twenty two yards outside. That wasn't really effective was missing throws its tunnel was off etc.. We get all of that. But what is it that we say about New Orleans that we have to pay attention to we believe in them because we believe that the road to the Super Bowl was going through New Orleans that Mercedes. He's been stone if it got to go to Lambofield. If he's got to go through San Francisco where the hell they get quick. 'cause the Santa Clara right because I I drove it out of traffic control Google. Whatever they know right? 'cause I got stuck the Dan traffic but I'm telling you right now you gotta go there you have to go to Lambofield. You have a problem and that's why this is a big deal. It's not a matter of it being a regular season loss earlier on. It's a matter of right now when you know which teams are expected to be competing for for a berth to the Super Bowl. Who has that home turf matters in most situations? If you lamble feel why does it matter because you expect in a blizzard. Okay you gotta deal with that Mirages and Blissett. If you've got New Orleans you gotta go to that dome. You're wondering.

"If you wanna cut me out of the shot also for the betterment of this new development, but I'm doing fun. I welcome your return. So we do not need a west. Okay. All right. So hang in there. West almost to the finish line vol been there. You look good though, you're feeling good. Look good feel good feel good. All right. Big show. Coming up today. AFC's an interesting place right now, really interesting. You'll know about rob gronkowski retiring. But. The defending ABC champion defending Super Bowl champion patriots. While they better not looking at rear view mirror or the side mayor because objects Greg are closer than they appear. We're gonna talk about that when they make those MIR's at this point. So they don't have that doesn't have to be true because of Steven Spielberg he needed that for the movie dress park, and he paid off big mirror paid paid them off that. And also, we're going to do some news ESO. We're gonna talk about what's going on in the AFC, which is getting more and more competitive by the day and a lot of news to get including Mark on that. Well, it's you know, you can never say it's not a Indian barrel ground because it will always be built upon an Indian barrel ground, but the Browns facility in Berea, correct. Might pronouncing correctly high called Berea, but that's could be you know, Jen that could just be from where you're from. Right. These are happier for coal town. So yes, these are happy days in Berea and a big press conference today. So we're gonna start right there. Let's do some news Ricky. I started screaming. This yelling like you thought. I was on the field on game day thing. The thing we kept saying this can't be real. Just a bunch of boys having the time of their lives. That was Baker Mayfield reacting when asked. Where he was what happened when he found out Baker Odell Beckham junior was coming to the Cleveland Browns big presser in Cleveland. They had I, Freddie kitchens. The head coach spoke on his own wearing the Cleveland Cleveland Indians hat and for all the off shocks. Freddie kitchens. Freddie knows what he's doing. He's putting that cap on. It's another reminder. Hey, I'm here to coach ball ball. And be one of you like he gets it. He started the presser wishing them. Good luck on their home opener which is like a veteran coach move. So Freddie, does his thing. And then they tried out the four big stars of the Browns Myles Garrett who did not have a lot to do or say in this press conference. Jarvis Landry who is the BFF, of course of Odell Beckham. And then Baker Mayfield and the had about twenty to thirty minute presser the introduction, your initial takeaways Mark from the press conference, well, I appreciated the bake. For Mayfield and the rest of talked about it being a bit of a surreal moment because that's what I've been saying the whole time. And even now it just seemed weird because the Browns I think have probably led the league in hopeful press conferences that have led to literally nothing but utter disaster and this occurred on April Fools day number one, which I found a little anti. But I do think Finally I think they were sitting up there looking at each other like how is this come together? How's this happen? And Baker mayfield's, quote, totally encapsulates that it's still it's still one. There was one moment though. Because Baker Mayfield some edge to them with the reporters to is like more. There was no one here last year. Now, you're all here. It's like, okay. Well, you're tattoo. What's going on there? But he basically one point when they're starting to peg Odell Beckham with who are you the person? Should we be concerned about Bill Beckham the experience and Baker Mayfield said he's here today? He didn't have to be it's voluntary. He's part of this team cares. Very much. So I think they're all glued together because owed L and Baker were hanging out long before this happened and he's legit best friends with Landry and people..

"They're not good enough to get out of the east. They're not good enough to get to where Cairo can make that difference. And they're not good enough in large part because of kyri the regular kyri in my opinion. He so ball dominant dribble dribble dribble and the rest of these guys all get discouraged by them because they're all on the climb. And that's the other thing about Kyrie as much of a veteran as he is he still on the climb. He's still achieving his greatness. He's still looking for his own glory, and there's a compete. There's a competition going on there with the younger players. That's just different. If you were with a guy feels like he's arrive. I'll I'll point out something that. That I've seen I've noticed and I've talked to some of the Celtics guys. Like does anybody realize that when Kyrie's missed we've not we've not played in for the most part against the non playoff teams, the seventy Sixers who they beat without him in the playoffs is kind of the one exception. But take a look at this list. These are the teams that they've there was like. Wow. Look at how much better they are without Kyrie's like, yeah. Well, the pelicans are trying to lose the Mavericks are bad. The Cavs are bad the beat them twice. The nets are surprisingly good. But the nets are not expected. They're not really seeing they're not they the Celtics are trying to position themselves and figure themselves out against the top three other teams in the east the rest doesn't matter. Does that change? Do you think that'll change people's view of how good they actually are without Kyrie Irving? If you contextualized with. Yeah, he's not playing and they're winning more games. But they're doing it against inferior competition for the most. None of us will matter soon because we're into real games and real performance, and are they going to advance and we're gonna no real quickly. I still. Think they're the most talented team in the east if they get their act together. What about the raptors I feel like the raptors may because they're Toronto. But they were so close and yet they kept running into LeBron now lebrons not there, and they add by who he's better than demar Droese. Right. Like for sure. For better at at. Both ends feels like we're not. And and they went out and got Mark assault. Big ad. Yeah. Yeah. They got better at two starting positions demonstrably better and to dynamic to defensive player of the year guys like they're legit there. Look, why do you think Boston's better I think Boston's just more talented? I think they have more dynamic wing shot makers that are gonna make the difference. I worry about Kyle Lowry, and where he just disappears at certain moments in he'll he just won't even be there a game five in a series. It's tied to two then they'll come back and have another great game. So I like guards that are pressure packed that are going to perform when they really need. All right. This sunday. You also look the co owner of L AFC L AFC. Okay. So if you've ever been if you've been to Los Angeles recently, and you're driving on the one ten km and drive on the one ten on left hand side. You're used to seeing the Coliseum and on.

Baseball needs something. Maybe they need something. I'll tell you the gains more entertaining. All games are more entertaining coming up. Next, I'm figuring out if Pinto's in town. See if he's in town. We will try that plus, let's see. What do you want to go to? Let's circle back to the dodgers since that's one of the big stories of the day. And the the thing that I said about UCLA Puig has met with nothing but criticism on social media. I've said, Yossi, oh, Puig is done with the dodgers. I will explain why.

This monster is burger that they're offering in Arizona, and he said, yeah, it's called the gridiron burger, and it is a you asked if there is any person? Yeah, that's cave capable of eating this burger and I can eat fast. Like I, if we're having something fast contests, but I could not match me on donuts ninety one to try and here's why I can't eat a lot. Okay, so, but so Francisco Pinto can eat a lot a lot and fast. He is a, he is a world champion eater. He could be a competitive eater. Now we had them and we lost him and I'm now Greg's trying to get them back. But. And Francisco Pinto is part of the Spanish language broadcast team for the for the Lakers. And so. He'd be the one person. I just great thumbs up down and we get an MBA. Okay, got it. All right.
