Kanye West's Latest Conspiracy
"And the last few weeks he has displayed both those attributes I want to say. But yeah, another day, another crazy Kanye West story. Whether you want to believe it's a conspiracy is up to you, but it turns out some of what he said on the Tucker Carlson show the other night, the people at Fox decided not to air because, well, he just sounded nuttier than it should house rat. In addition to tossing the word Jew around like crazy, which you don't want to do in Hollywood, at one point, Kanye mentioned something really bizarre. He claimed that fake children were planted in his home to a manipulate his kids. North his daughter who's 9, saint his son, who is 6 chicagos, another daughter who's four and psalm is his three year old son. Tucker wasn't quite sure what he meant and Kanye explained. He said, I mean like actors, professional actors placed into my home to sexualize my kids. Once again, I don't know what Kanye means. I did on yesterday's Patreon describe how their four year old daughter Chicago in a clip on Instagram was wearing full on makeup. Including lip liner, lipstick, lip gloss, probably a little foundation. I bet a touch of mascara too. She was going out with her mommy. I believe they were gonna see the LA rams play. And sit up in a private suite, but I was immediately disgusted to see that. I understand little girls want to play makeup with mommy. But playing with makeup and applying it are two different things. This was applied makeup. And I can't stand when people sexualize children, especially nowadays with all the crazy creeps and pedophiles roaming around. So I'm on Kanye's side completely when it comes to this and judging the way the females and that family have changed their faces and body types with tons of procedures and surgeries and Botox and fillers and God knows what else they have their hands on before the rest of the world knows about it. It's very unsettling.

"la rams" Discussed on Bet The Board
"The only thing missing from his mantle coming into this year was a playoff victory. Now of course he has a chance for that elusive Super Bowl and can shed that tag that's unfairly been attached to him as an underachiever as the headman for the Detroit lines. When you dig into some of what Stafford has been best at, this postseason, it's pretty simple. When the game has mattered most, that's when staffords raised his level of play. He led the rams to 13 points late when they trailed 17 7 to race the ten point deficit, which contributed to the biggest comeback and championship game history. In that span he was 11 of 14 for a 121 yards and one touchdown. And for Matthew Stafford, he had struggled under pressure this season. He's eviscerated the blitz. He'd struggled against zone coverage throughout the regular season, but when you look at his passer rating in the postseason, one 13 and a half versus his own compared to 89 and a half during the regular season. Where do the rams in your opinion have an advantage when it comes to throwing the football against his Bengals defense? Specific to the rams passing against the Bengals secondary and defense in general. I think when you look in its simplest format its core, the thing Cincinnati's defense does is the way you want to defend Matthew Stafford theoretically. And you hit on that there at the top. You don't want to blitz Matthew Stafford in the Bengals, bottom 7 and blitz rate this season in the playoffs. You look at Louisiana room. He only sent blitz on 15% of opponent third downs. So they've kind of got that element of the defense down pat with how you want to defend Stafford on the season though if you look Cincinnati's played an above average rate of zone coverage. And all the rave like the last two weeks, it was about Lou and rumo's rush three and drop 8 and where he effectively had Sam Hubbard, his defensive end drop in to coverage after he reads pass since he played with three safeties on the field and Lou would basically have von bell crashed down into the middle of the field. In the chiefs game bell would crash down in the middle of the field kind of eliminate some of those crossers, those middles, eliminate Kelsey a little bit as that helped defender. He also acted as a spy on mahomes. Now, you can't spy Stafford with this with this kind of I wouldn't think you don't want to spy to Stafford obviously. Well, you can't spy. I'm not sure it'd be in their best interest to eliminate Matthew Stafford's legs is a huge component of what the rams want to do offensively. Right. And so I think when you look at the rush three drop 8, it could work. Lou does a pretty good job in that in terms of morphing from manda zone did use that more man in the second half against the chiefs knowing how they were calling the game that these refs weren't going to impact things. So he's like, hey, we're going to use a little bit more in. But typically, he is going to use a touch more zone. I think after two weeks of film, you would understand that using a little bit more zone against Stafford would be the right approach here. We talked about that in the forty-niners, rams game, two weeks ago. So first, you can't blitz Stafford. Is EPA jumps to a positive .53 EPA per pass to about an even mark when not blitzed. Yards per pass attempt increased 1.2 yards his success rate surges 14% versus the blitz. Bengals don't blitz, checkmark. You talked about Stafford in his zone, raiding dips 42 points on our numbers against zone compared to man. He makes far more mistakes. EPA drops, touchdowns drop interceptions increase versus zone. We know Stafford likes to show off his arm talent for time to time completely understandable, Fitz balls and spaces that probably shouldn't be attempted by most quarterbacks. So when you drop more guys in the coverage, staffords production dips a little bit. So if Anna rumo goes with his rush three drop 8 and it's more of his own concept, that's the best way to potentially hinder Stafford. 3.9 yards an attempt on 49 dropbacks against just three rushers this season for staffords. Small sample size, but certainly enough to incorporate in your game plan. Now, I do think if the bangles are showing heavier boxes on first down, that would be the time to pass. We know the Bengals are super sensitive to play action. Bottom 5 defending it, they're also 32nd defense of pass efficiency on first down. But at the end of the day, you can do all the quirky things you want with your scheme. But a lot of this comes down to the jimmies and Joe's. And if you're looking the rams right now 5 O against past defenses 20th or worst inefficiency this season, bangles are 24th. If an aroma with his rush three drop 8, do slow down Stafford a little bit, I think it does open some things up for the rams running game talk. And when you speak about the rams running game, it's largely been bottled up over each of the last couple of weeks, but clearly a step down in class when you go from playing the Tampa Bay bucks, defensive front, the forty-niners defensive front versus what they're going to encounter in the form of the Cincinnati Bengals. Cam Akers, he's averaged just 2.8 yards per carry this postseason, led the team in rushing each of the last two games. Sony Michelle has kind of been the forgotten man just 11 carries for 20 yards over the last two games, but he is the guy that was the bell cow throughout the regular season. It has a little bit more experience as far as having actually played and won a Super Bowl as a member of the New England Patriots. So if you're the rams and the bangles elect to go with this rush three drop a type approach, do you think we see a much more concerted effort from this rams offense to giving the ball the cam Akers running the ball and trying to pick up four or 5 yards setting up second and third and shorts? One thing we I think have to give mcvay a lot of credit for is mixing up the game plans the last four weeks. So it's really kind of tough to anticipate what he's going to do here. But if you look in two of the games, he's been super run heavy. The other two games he's come out and attack through the air with Stafford. If you look at some of the early down run rates the first three quarters over the last month, you're looking at like a 52 48 early down split of past to run. So he's been very balanced in that sense. I think this is interesting. There are some obvious avenues for Cooper cop and OBJ the way he's coming on now these acclimated into the offense and Stafford has been very good in certain instances, but when you look at opponent and you start to think about McVeigh at times, or you can get a little squirrely when the stakes are high, and then if we see this rush three drop 8, I think we could see a fair amount of running early. And it would make sense to test that when you hit it perfectly. You're dropping down in class against the Bengals run defense. You'll get the last four weeks. The rams have faced the forty-niners run defense twice. The Cardinals with JJ watt returning, and the Buccaneers with Barrett, JPP and Levante Davis, all back on the front 7. For the entire season, those three defenses are second, third, and 7th in EPA per Russia out in early downs the first three quarters, and that's including games where some of those horses were out that I just mentioned were turned into.
"la rams" Discussed on Bet The Board
"We're not here to play favorites. If you do that in this business, you're soon separated from your bankroll and it doesn't benefit us that are wagering on a weekend week out basis any more than it does a disservice to our listeners that come here looking for that unbiased coverage, trying to take actionable elements that we've isolated that they can use in their betting endeavors, whether it's for this game or a regular season matchup between Jacksonville and Cincinnati that took place way back when on a Thursday night. So I think it's a great point to bring up and oftentimes public perception can lead you to find investments that otherwise wouldn't present themselves. And when you're talking about the bangles, hey look, we can start with Joe burrow who's gone 6 in a straight up and against the number. The last 6 games, 73% completion percentage more than 328 passing yards per game, a touchdown interception ratio of 13 to two. That of course does not include his week 18 game or the Bengals week 18 game, knowing that burrow sat that one out, he's done some great things. Since week 14, the guy has been outstanding. He finished the Kansas City game to your point a well under 7 yards per play, and 14 of 19 with making quick throws. He's not a guy that had a ton of time to sit in the pocket survey the field and spread it around like he did against the Baltimore Ravens. So when you're trying to figure out the offensive game plan, for Joe burrow, to play to his strengths against this rams defense. Is it as simple pain is trying to go empty and letting him get the ball out of his hand inside of two seconds. So Aaron Donald Leonard Floyd and von Miller aren't breathing down the back of his neck. It does make sense, right? And even though Joe burrow wasn't sacked a bunch in the Kansas City game, he was still pressured on 41% of his dropbacks. And that's the one thing we're digging into now metrically is pressure rates great. It impacts the quarterback, but how much of that pressure turns into sacks? And so you have a team like the rams who creates pressure and turns those in sacks, the chiefs, on the other hand, create some pressure, they just don't convert a ton of sacks. We obviously saw Chris Jones botched two of them. But if you're Bengals better here, the hope is Zack Taylor sleeping in his office for two straight weeks. He's up against his mentor. The guy that literally plucked him off the street, my understanding is he wasn't going to be working in the NFL in 2017 until McVeigh made him an assistant, wide receivers coach. So Taylor needs to figure out in my mind how to not be so predictable. That's where this first starts in my mind. How to disguise things. And I think the mission gets tougher in terms of disguising if CJ ozama isn't a 100% or is playing limited snaps with the MCL, which again, by all accounts, wouldn't be playing if this were a regular season game. When burrows under center, it's a run. When burros and shotgun, it's a pass. When you combine pass rates from shotgun and run rates from under center, there isn't a more predictable offense than Cincinnati this season. So something has to change here. This isn't just like we all hate Zack Taylor kind of thing. But this is why the sharpest minds who do this both betting analytically watching film don't think much of Zack Taylor. Because if you want to run from center on first down like you did against the chiefs every damn down. The rams defense, unlike the chiefs, is number one in the NFL in early down run EPA perusal out. Even formational the Bengals are predictable. When two receivers are on the field, 71% run. When three receivers are on the field, 33% run. You're literally tipping your hand all the time. The offensive line isn't great. But there's some things that Zack Taylor could have been doing throughout the course of this season that he hasn't done to help protection. 77% of the time the Bengals are in three wide sets. No other formation is used more than 18% of the time for Zack Taylor. The rams defense, they've let 43% of plays to great successful this season from three wide receiver sets. 16 interceptions to 13 touchdowns allowed sack the quarterback 35 times. It's obvious, but you have to mention it. Rams are number one in passwords. One right? Bengals are 30th and past block win rate. It's been a problem all season. The key here Todd is, I think, figuring out what the pass game looks like for Cincinnati. And how they're going to have to manufacture some things through the air. I know we can kind of dive into that. But I think if you're Bengals fan, you're gonna hate hearing this again, but it's like they face the easiest schedule of defenses this season. Second easiest by some metrics. They haven't faced the top 5 passing defense all season. And if you look at burrow in his last 14 starts, he's played one top ten passing defense. If you look at his last 16 games, Joe burrows played only four defenses that are league average or better in passing efficiency. And in those four games, Burroughs got a two to one interception to touchdown ratio. 47% success rate. He has a negative 0.14 EPA per pass attempt against those defenses. He's also taken 19 sacks in those games. The approach kind of how you was the main question at the top here. The approach has been pretty simple. It's like get the ball out of borough's hands quick. And if you look at those four games against the above average past defenses, boroughs released the ball at a well above average clip. 11th fastest in one game, 9th fastest, tenth fastest, and then second fastest release times of the quarterbacks that played in those four weeks. So if it's not a predictable first down run for Nixon, I would expect burrow to your point to be in shotgun to be an empty formation. Bro does have a ridiculous 72% completion rate from empty sets this season, but it diminishes how effective the receivers can be. Because only 22% of burrows pass attempts from empty, travel more than ten yards. Burrow has a negative EPA from empty this season as well. This is really an imperfect system. Cincinnati is just so far ahead of schedule in this rebuild. It's nuts. You can still see these glaring holes. Ideally, you want to attack the middle of the field if you're sensing. What is a nice story?.
"la rams" Discussed on Bet The Board
"Football game left this season. It is bittersweet. I am happy it's coming to an end, but I certainly missed games. This past Sunday. There's no doubt about that. You didn't say this. You didn't say fully entrenched watching the Pro Bowl from start to finish. Didn't watch a single snap. You're better off that way. Not one. Now I will say this. I didn't love this matchup. And this is a terrible way to start this podcast in terms of marketing and listeners people to this listeners have now turned off the show two and a half minutes in as you set things up quite nicely. But didn't see like a ton of value on the side or the total. I just wasn't completely interested in this game. And then all of a sudden, I had this mental conversation, like a runner with like three miles to go. And it's like, stop being a vagina here. Okay, let's dig into this game. Let's mentally turn the corner here and start just this game's awesome. Let's dig into it. Let's find something. And so there was this shift over the last 48 hours or so. Obviously, we've done a ton of prop work, but just in terms of the game itself, we turn the corner about 48 hours ago. We're fully entrenched. We're here. Super Bowl 56, baby. Do you want to tell the listeners the real reason why you don't care nearly as much about this game as you would have two weeks ago say at halftime at the Kansas City chief Cincinnati Bengals game? I mean, certainly there was some financial stuff there for sure. There's no doubt about it. Great show nonetheless, plenty of things to try and cover as we'll look at both sides of the ball, try and extract any value that still remains in the prop market. We spoke to John Sheeran earlier, of course, that interview will be available later in the show. I think there's a lot of stuff that longtime listeners are going to find value in as well as folks that are just tuning into the bet the board podcast for the first time. So when we set the stage on the game Sunday hold on, before we before we go ahead, the contest. Oh, just talking about this off air and I completely forgot to give it out. Well, I wasn't sure if you wanted to see the contest now or you wanted to wait till the middle of the more people is when you look at the numbers you get the initial trickle in here. Yeah, now when you tell people the match up in intrigue you though, we'll do it twice, but we'll kind of vaguely mention it at the end again. But here we go. We're doing a Super Bowl contest. It's on Twitter. $300 Super Bowl podcast, retweet, giveaway, three people. Well, $100 each. All you have to do is go to Twitter, retweet the pinned podcast post on our Twitter feeds. I'll have the Super Bowl podcast pinned on my feed. Todd will have one. Our bet the board Twitter feed will have one as well. Retweet all three, you get three entries into the $300 contest. Don't want to retweet all three and you only want to retweet once. You'll get one entry, if you're retweeted twice, two entries, so on and so forth. So you're going to earn up to three entries in the contest by retweeting all three pin tweets on each of our pages. As soon as the game ends, we'll put all those people who have retweeted into a little simulator thing. We'll run it once. Top three people will be the winners will announce that on the bet the port pod Twitter feed at some point during the game. And as always, easy. Yeah, and as always, we want to thank all of you our loyal listeners that have been with us from the pre season podcast all the way through the regular season and postseason a little way for us to say thank you for those contributions as we know the podcast continues to grow. It gets in front of more and more people every single football season. And you guys, the bet the board army that's out there are the reason why that's completely made possible. So as we get into the game pain, we know the combatants here, it's the rams and the Cincinnati Bengals, the rams, the de facto home team playing in their own building, despite not wearing their home jerseys. And this will be the second matchup in Super Bowl history to feature former number one picks going head to head. The last time it happened, Peyton Manning against Cam Newton, the one common denominator, of course, von Miller, who happened to be MVP in that game. Meanwhile, Joe burrow becomes the first quarterback drafted number one overall to lead his team to the Super Bowl within his first two seasons and we went from last year where we had the highest combined ages of two head coaches vying for the Lombardi trophy to this year where it's really manifested in a youth movement. And when you're talking about the rams as a four and a half point favorite at FanDuel sportsbook total on this game sits at 48 and a half, there are so many unique storylines, whether it's Zack Taylor and his inability to get out of his own way through the first two years suddenly going from a rags to riches story. Sean mcvay trying to redeem himself for the Super Bowl that got away the first time around against the New England Patriots. I'm going to leave it up to you, whether it's figuring out if we want to talk about the Bengals offense on the field against this rims, star studded defensive unit, or if it's the Matthew Stafford redemption tour up against the Bengals defense that somehow by hooker by crook has figured things out so far in three postseason appearances. Before we get to the breakdowns of this game in the matchups in the intricacies, I think this is probably needs to be discussed. How is your timeline Ben? At least after each of the Bengals wins. Have the mentions been filled with a bunch of happy people? Doctor bangles, fans coming for your throat. The Joe burrow bandwagon is completely filled up and I think it's more expensive if you want to get a ticket on that bandwagon than it is to get it in the SoFi Stadium..

Why he got flagged you know and it's just going to cause a lot of dissension But if you look at the rule.

Yeah yeah That's that's not really that good at all bills. I with four point. Nine th really good They did the average ran eleven yard. So that's goes straight but when you're not allowing yardage by the run and then also art allowing yardage by the pass i mean on some pretty sweet deal yes Were fifth for completion percentage. Which that's not too bad. I now at seventy two point six v. worst. The vikings are i with seventy seven point.

So they're leading the league again. Think catch up yes. We are only one of seven teams. That's not giving us a forty plus yard pass. How about that okay. The longest pass thrown on us has been thirty one yards and only two other teams have shorter. Longest passes well. I hope we keep that up through sunday. Yeah i think we will know what we did.

I don't have the right donald dig. I mean i feel like i'm will. But i do want to go. What's the mind the brain of you know athletes after dude. You don't know man the nfl where the rice it soccer whether it's basketball. I think that there is some research behind. That's another story for another day. Yeah hey that that's good though because there is a lot to that because you don't know what's going to happen in twenty years to your brain seriously. No joke. i listen stick around everybody. Karen kay got a traffic update and then coming up as kirk is going to start calling these college football games and he's going to have pac twelve and big ten. I wanna hear his his thought on this giant alliance now between the pac twelve. The acc and the big ten are kirk. Morrison is in today for george sodano sodano and cap on seven seven. Espn coming up in a matter of moments. We're going to give away. La fc sweet night. Tickets got a pair of tickets to the seven ten sweet when l. Afc takes on sporting kc. We'll tell you more details about that coming up in just a couple of minutes. But kirk i gotta ask you. You know you were talking about this earlier. How you got the ucla hawaii game this saturday. Then you've got northwestern versus michigan state later in the week and then the last game of the week you told me was like east tennessee against vanderbilt. That i get your whole schedule right. Yes you got it right. Followed by a unlv arizona state game the week after the east tennessee vanderbilt. One was the one that i'm like. Did i get that right. I can't believe so. Let me get your opinion about what is happening in college. Football because when oklahoma and texas took off for the sec. I came on the air the next and went. Okay if you're the pac twelve you gotta start really thinking about what you're gonna do in the future because you don't wanna have teams like sc. An oregon picked off which some people were talking about the big ten trying to go after those two schools. If anything if you're the pac twelve you wanna go out and try and expand not let your premier product be picked off lot of alliteration there so so tell me what you think. Though now of of what we're this is the early stage. Reports are pac twelve big ten. Acc will combine forces in some way details to be determined but really in an effort to team up to combat the power of the sec. Kirk morrison you're a college football analyst for espn. Tell me what you think what i think. Is there like you mentioned. They're trying to stop. What the se building. The sec's already built a juggernaut. Now you add to programs oklahoma and texas to. Let's be honest. they were the big twelve. That's why the big twelve crumple because the two teams who are. Actually the big twelve are no longer there. Oklahoma state tans estate baylor. It's all good schools. Trust me good schools. But they weren't they didn't bring in the near the revenue of texas and oklahoma. Texas and oklahoma has one of the best rivalry game that we watch every single year in the red river. Show would call it something else. But i get upset when you call it the old version but that's the one big game a lot of people watching those two schools going to the. Sec is going to be a lot of money. i knew it when. Abc espn took over the sec. In the coming years in terms of that saturday window. That cbs own for so many years. The sec game of the week would now be by premier football. It is it is it. It'd be the equivalent of sunday night. Football be equivalent of monday night football. It's a standalone game and it's not necessarily stand alone because other college games will be going on but that one in particular is going to have major impact. It's all about the dollars. Let's be honest. Scotty it's all about the dollars and now with espn plus moving the way that it's going a lot of things that we see now are subscription based so the sec will be subscription based in some aspects and. I think that's where you see the alliance trying to figure out. How do we do the same thing. How do we get that same lure that same appeal. That the sec hat. So what do we do. Let's try to schedule a usc versus clinton right there. You go or this goal. Michigan versus oregon where these are like household gangs three four times a year within their respective conferences. But i'll be we've been pondering isto we've been pondering this i want to set you scott. What about usc.

"All right let's get a check on traffic and then let's come back and find out what kirk things about this trade that the rams made stick around everybody yet sadako and cap on seven seventy. Spn kirk morrison. You know him from his days as a raider. You know him as the pre half and post game host with travis rodgers here on seven hundred ten talk and rams and we're coming right to your phone calls but before we do kirk i gotta get your opinion on what the rams did by going out and getting another running back. Everybody knows a camakers was hurt before. Training camp daryl henderson sprained thumb but he was in practice the next day so they went out and they make a move to get sony. Michelle a former first round draft choice from the new england patriots. The guy who rams fans will because he scored a touchdown in the super bowl that kind of put it out of reach. What do you make of this. Move by. The rams to go acquire sony michelle. I'm not the biggest fan of the move. I'm just not When i first heard them they wow. They went and got him. And i'm saying it does serve a knee but i was. I'm not the biggest fan of the move. I think that there were more options. That will come available. I think that not a fan of the move. But i understand. I understand the ram needed to get a running back in there. I knew they will get a running back. That was his way too. Young even d'oro henderson only in his third year in the nfl to me you're still learning the nfl. You're not necessarily a veteran veteran just yet. So he's in year three and he's been a guy who's been off injured daryl henderson then the guys behind him have never even taken a snap in the nfl. We knew the rams go get running back at some point. But i think the injury to darrow henderson with the thumb and i know he's back but that definitely made the the rams say you know what we gotta go figure something out because we are one injury away from having to rely on a couple of guys who have as many carries in the nfl is mean. You combine cap. I only have one. You got one okay. But i understand the move i get i just for me. I think in the coming days and weeks. The rams could have possibly saved that draft capital when i'm still getting conflicting reports on what they gave up. Is it a fourth rounder. In or fifth rounder in twenty twenty. Two and it's another pick in two thousand twenty three all late round picks. Nothing you know before round four which is a good thing. But i just felt that for a guy who was declined his fifth year option. So just remember that song. Michelle was already not going to be coming back to new england. Next year at the rate that he was possibly supposed to get he was going to be a free agent regardless. I just think that he was possibly on the bubble anyway. Rams could await it at least thought to you. Know the final cutdown day and bring him in but if they found the need that they want it they got it. I'm just it's something about these georgia running back right. It didn't work out with the last one. Name talk girly people say what makes chubb with the georgia. Yeah okay. he got a contract extension. But you know. He had a little knee injury in college and sony. Michelle is very similar to todd. Gurley has guy who'd been banged up while he's been in the nfl but the rams are gonna gamble. They're going to go with sony michelle. I just wanna see what else was out there in the coming weeks especially after this last preseason game which gives you time to see who was on the bubble and who teams really saying make their roster and kirk. We'll come back to this coming up. Because i i see just slightly differently. Which is to say that the rams for some reason targeted this player you know and we're willing to give up late round draft choices for him. When there's so many available free agent veteran backs they decided. Hey we'll take this guy in all likelihood you'll only have them for years so i'm also curious about the move but i kind of liked the fact. They went out and got aggressive rather than saying well. This guy sitting at home they actually went and got a guy that's been in training camp and they know his game so we'll come back to it but stick around everybody. Let's get to your calls. The question was this. If you're a grown man do you take a baseball glove to a major league baseball game. We're getting a lot of reaction on twitter. Let's go to the phones. Here's mitch in new jersey mitch. Checking it on seven. Espn what's going on today. Mitch how's it going. Scott how you doing kirk. Greg's mitch moore i i like to sony. Trae by the way I just wanted to the rams have any drift choice of lessons. Thinking i would take my love. I've got a lot of Surgeries i do. I'm not gonna look at a bigger man by getting hit the mouth be more money I hate pain. Get more money to take the gloves. That was a great. That was a great catch by the way But i believe the fans have a give the feel a chance. Allies all out. It's it's like in football right. You do the screen offense liming can't run downfield to a certain I spot how kirkwood new. That's your your specialty. I got you. I got you. Thanks for taking my call. I met you got him right.

And that's a long list. So the what i would do. I would buy my coffee. You know with the app. And i'm like oh you know what already grabbed it like. If you're going to go down there which is mind getting it for me. So i buy my own coffee extra or will you can do is just get a screen shot of what you get. If the person really wants to buy it they can just show it to the barista and then you're good. Well i gotta give you. I gotta tell you it takes a lot of guts because i. Here's what i would've done. I would've gone and bought and that that apple thing which i think sounds disgusting at the beginning and i would have gotten it tasted it not liked it throwing it out and that would have been the end of it but instead to go back down and actually say to them. Hey look this drink. Smells bad and i didn't know that. Oh you didn't know what you did on the radio. The radio didn't do to them. I went and looked. They love me down there. So i just went. I went back because i felt bad. That you know. Greg paid for the drinks and we were going to throw them away. So it's like. I'm gonna just go and grab them what he likes. And i'm gonna grab what i like because i actually won't cough. And what did he get. So what greg were i get. I get a java chip with no whip cream eighty. Yeah but it's not black coffee black coffee but i'll be awake so anyways i just went down the gate. Can i get these two. But i happen to have the other two drinks and they just saw me get them. So he's he didn't like him was like nah. This wasn't boston i got. I didn't like it and he's like okay. Cool so i would literally got my app. And i got. I got someone went with me. They could see that apple is about a pay for and he's like now. We're going i was like. Are you sure he was will like. Don't worry about it but nice. I tip them while went down there and they like me all right. Well listen. I think that the the end all be all to this conversation is what you need to know. Is that based on two people. Thus far starbucks is over two on whatever this apple pie. Coffee sweet apple rank your s makihata apple. Chris makihata there over to and that is what you need to know brought to you by morongo resort and spa good times less than ninety minutes from wherever you are so so so listen i gotta say real quick if you want to jump in on this does a grown man bring a baseball glove to a major league baseball game. Go for eight seven seven seven seven. Espn eight seven seven. Seven three seven seven six and coming up. I want to hear what kirk morrison thinks about this sony.

"Like haiti linkoping jamaican republican from region. Down to lose so other caribbean island. Yes mookie atta crazy catch. Wow watching him play. Second base is so cool. Yeah i think. I know that sounds crazy but i think he should stay there seriously. Play any position. He's just he's so amazing. And you just hear the combinations of who's throwing to who and you're like wow. Mookie started that double player. Like listen to that. That's all right. That's really interesting. So greg since you are the big dodger fan here on this day so How how frustrated where you yesterday by the over thirteen with any runners on over ten with runners scoring position and eight runners stranded. I what i really liked liked to actually that walker. Bueller pitched really really well throughout the game. He said he did not pitch. Yeah right so if you can do better than that great. It was frustrating. I didn't know what day was really doing when he had cody bellinger in that six spot instead of instead of aj pollock there. I mean he was trying to do the right. He looked to use the always comes back to poor dave. Well i mean. He's the one that made that decision and out. When he came up there was too long. We talked about this. A manager never understand. I seriously never so difficult is when you look at his lineup. Like what is it that you pick apart that you go. You know because of my experience. Managing it literally. That's because that's what i do. Listen i manage literally. I can figure any of this stuff those seriously. Like what are you looking at you go. That's all wrong. That's all wrong. He should be no. I don't actually think most of the time he does many things wrong. Just that this was a situation where you see. Cody bellinger there and you're like i would probably be things wrong. He doesn't say the other ways. Joe he doesn't do any words talked about the floor. I don't use them very well. Words blouse but it's cody in. That spot. seems like he would be better lower down lineup today batting eighth right because of because of the exact same reason now. It's funny because like if you talk to like the big analytics types in baseball they will tell you and they've actually done the math on this like somebody actually did a whole report. I think it was fan graphs or one of those sites where you can they look. They took every single lineup. In major league baseball one season and they just reversed the order of the lineup. Right as opposed to the number one guy. Yeah it'd being is that he was the ninth or whatever you know what i'm saying and the difference was negligible basically and then they started plugging people. In all the different slots and the difference was negligible now in a one night scenario. Get your your potential beef but ultimately over one hundred sixty two games. Is it really make a big difference. No it doesn't. That's why i'm not upset about the loss. As much as maybe other people want it to be upset about mercy that noise you know i mean seriously i mean you got fifty three thousand people the largest crowd in any major league baseball game this year. You've got the hated astros that nobody wants to forgive. You got people throwing inflatable garbage cans onto the field oscar. The grouch was all over the stadium. Awesome so it was. It was great to show up and boo and be loud and everything else but in the final analysis you know what you really gotta do in a situation like that especially at home. You gotta win. Yeah is it possible that because of what you're talking about cap that dynamic where every single battery was if they gotta win that instead of being relaxed and just playing baseball and just being the better team they were trying to get revenge for what occurred years ago and everyone's expected to get revenge. What happened two years ago and they were pressing well to your point. L z walker bueller. I watched the post game yesterday. And he was asked about the atmosphere and he said. I haven't felt anything like this outside of a playoff game here in this building. Was that kind of amped up. And he's like you know he. He kind of alluded that maybe we wanted to win it for the fans. He's like for us. It's just another game you know at this stage but for them because it's the first time they're back there was that so maybe there was. An custodies has gotten more patient. He's not the most patient battery we know that but he has gotten more pace got noted and i felt this up last night. He was impatient. I thought he was impatient. Because he knew this was a moment that the fans wanted as opposed to let me wait for good pitch to hit and see if i can move the guys you know from from one base the other or if there is a mistake made i can take advantage of it. I as if he was like all right. Let me do this for the people and it was like. Yeah yeah and i wonder if the other side of that is true which is houston locking in like. Hey like get. Imagine though the whole pre-game you know. Hey against like sixty thousand people out here. We're not just playing against those guys dodger. Uniform we gotta play against so everybody just lock in pitchers hitters everything well to your point when you ask athletes regardless of the sport right like you know you ask them what are you. What would you prefer scoring the winning play in a game and having the crowd roar or silencing the opposing crowd and a lotta guys will tell you silencing posing crowd yeah so to your point there could be. They look pretty happy at the end of that. When i saw carlos correa grab jose altuve as you know what. I mean like that you could tell. They were laughing. Your shirt was he too shy for that. He was too shy. He doesn't like the show through the doesn't exist really small because he is so how about tonight though. You're max scherzer. You've competed against the dodgers beating. The dodgers now you find yourself where in la hat at a press conference. It says dodgers behind you and tonight you get to step in to this moment. I mean it's really cool to see sherzer and kershaw sitting on the bench together and talking. But now you're actually going in your starting tonight. I start for your team and you come into the middle of this. Let's talk about that a little bit on the other side. We gotta take a quick break.

"One of the button and you does it. Otherwise i just throw it away. I i can't do much. Thank goodness for football. No i just want to jump in and talk about the secondary now. Because i see you in the offense versus defense period out here. Yup and you're on the sideline and your coaching up the secondary and that's got to be a group where there's a lot of competition because there were a couple of guys that were starters that left episode. What's going on with the secondary. And what kind of coaching i think of you as an offensive coach. Honestly kinda coach and you do just congratulate nor making sure whatever that call is defensively. We're kind of in alignment with our our techniques are fundamentals and our calls and communication. But i couldn't be more pleased with the leadership that i've seen from jalen ramsey. I'm really looking forward to watching. Various williams continue to build on a great campaign last year jordan fuller and his second year. You know expect him to potentially wear the green dot which is a real credit to the confidence and the communicator. That he is and so. I think rehim coach avro coach cooley. They've done a great job. But it starts with those players and jalen and outstanding job along with fuller of really leading. The way sean. You've been here a number of years. Now as i head coach. Where have you grown the most. I think it's i really know i've said this before. But i think it's continuing to rely on the people around. You know having trust in them being able to delegate when you're surrounded by great people you can really trust those guys. Hey great people right now this. La thing it's just great isn't it. i love it. But it's it's i think it's continuing to the you know preach the importance of being surrounded by great people. We talked about religion. But i could go on and on about our coaching staff. And then when you got the right key players in place you know you can lean on them and sleep better at night. We've talked to you about this a number of times over the years. You've always said that in the off season you gotta try to find more time to just do you. And i'm sure veronica feels that way as well crust besides the crust. What what did you do this off season. That allowed you just to be. You know what we went to mykonos for a week incongruous this year it was outstanding fun lot of good food a lot of but it must be answer and thereafter to step in getting down. You know what the liquid courage is real. It was fun. We had a blast. And then i think it's you know when you're and unplug lay. Let's let's be present. That's the big thing you know. Just be totally present. And whatever you're doing and that can just lead to living the life you wanna live. I mean it is pretty amazing when you take a step back and say this is what you do for a job i. I'm sure you guys feel the same way when you're enjoying it when you're using the platform the right way to pour into people positively good things can happen then you can just kind of be at the mercy of. Hey we want to do a lot of special things but hey let's shoot are shot. Let's not be afraid of whatever You know be afraid to fail and continue to grind and do our thing and enjoy it. While we're looking forward to talking to during the season they going to be on with us every week. So is that news to you as long as it's a limited time man i'm in fort limited. We can't even we we always. It's always fun. So i i much better senior you guys in person. It is last week though it is last week. Yeah where are you going man.

"Company carlton. I cannot be used his legs to dance. That's right is doing man good so that we heard that we just asked to sean about because i had heard my sources had told me if you're writing by to and from each and every day i just ride a to practice short turnaround and said tougher ride on the way back. Okay so okay now. Now what's that all about. I mean you look good thank you. Is that what it is you told us. You put the covert vocal maintenance trying to get it off right now so I can still look good. All right very fortunate. 'cause you're still gonna be on television right. It's right hopefully the last televised game of the season. You got the qb that you wanted. Yeah you got your players that you want. How was your mentality different. This season than any other season says she'd been head coach here. I wouldn't say it's different in terms of just taking it one day at a time. But i think what you understand. What the little bit of experiences we you know that you've got to earn it every day but in terms of the pieces in place to be able to give yourself an opportunity to really feel like hey we can do some special. I definitely feel that way. Feel great leadership from the coaches most importantly great leadership from our players guys at the right key spots. And i love the way that we've been compete in these first handful of days and it's been fun to be out here with this group. I don't want you to put golf under the bus at all. Yeah but can you just tell us one thing that matt stafford brings to the field. That golf did not for you. Yeah you know i. I don't know that it's necessarily that. It's okay what a staffer do so well and i've said this before. I just think one of the things that matthew does. And this really isn't about comparing he and jared. It's more about art when i'm watching. Matthew stafford play quarterback to me the most difficult spots to play quarterback earned those known passing situations. Defenses spending their ears back. They're rushing the quarterback they can present a variety of different looks with the way that they distribute their eleven defenders. And that's when i see him play his best. He's got great pocket feel toughness to keep his eyes down the field. He understands how to move and manipulate defenders arm slot. It's exciting stuff to see when he's going to work and he had another good day today. I'm from detroit so you tell me so. You know yeah coach. Let me ask you not about quarterback or running back. Because i know that's been the headline so far which you talk to us about how the offensive line is doing. Because there's some new bodies coming in some guys who were a little bit older guys who've been around just that to me is the cornerstone of of any good offense offensive line. Did you know i. I've been really impressed. I think we've got a handful of guys you know. You're looking at seven or eight guys. That are legitimate stars in our mind. You know you've got whitworth and haven steinman in the tackle position joe. Noteboom did an excellent job when he came in and filled in for whitworth at the left. Tackle spot inside. You know you've got bobby evans. You've got david edwards austin. Corbin shown he can play at a really high level at the guard position. and then with the centers. I've been really encouraged with what corbett's done. But also brian allen he looks healthy you know another year removed from the injury that he sustained a couple years ago in pittsburgh i think he's done an excellent job and so that group in particular have been really pleased with them and our offensive line coach. This was his first practice out here since he got at he's been stored up in his hotel room. Zoom meetings. He was choose to be out here with us today. They've been great. They've been really good. Sean mcvay with this year. Now let ask you this because and you know it's a family show up. But i would imagine that when matthew hit his hand on that helmet. Yeah there there was a lot of experts. Like was there a count on. How many expletives happened in that moment and then i blacked out george. I all i know is this. I was watching the defensive sharks. We're doing a two minute. I heard what sounded like a gunshot. I look back. He's holding his hands. There was a lot of expletives. My mom would ripped my you know what i was saying. All the defensive guys coachman i've never seen you that pissed and everybody was just get the hell away from me. At that point. I was angry and now that's why you see us. Look like a bunch of duds with those cats on the top of everybody's helmet now so we don't have that instance anymore. Let me ask you about the running back position and even though it has been hot button topic. We're just kind of get the latest on down. How daryl's looking how that group is looking. Yeah i've been really pleased with daryl. I think he's an excellent job to start off camp and really daryl's always done a great job when he's been available but the key thing is how do we keep him healthy. How does he take care of his body. How does he pushed through some of those things that inevitably occur for the backs. And then thomas brown you talk about rising star. Our assistant head coach leading the running back room what he's done with xavier jones watching jake funk guy like raymond clay. It's a good competitive group. These guys have a good in there. I i don't feel like it's too big form but there will. Henderson is definitely asserted himself as the leader. That room. the top dog can do. There's no limitations in my mind. And then i've been really pleased with those other guys with what they've done with their opportunities early on now coach. You know you. And i've known she'll go minute now. Have you know even before you kosher first. Game who were hanging out of super bowl. Ca part iii blah came in studio with today. Yeah i'm a little worried that received my wedding of a tation. We know what's going to be engaged for about ten years cove and we're putting it off next. June invitations have not been sent out yet. Talking nice about me. you'll get coach. Let me ask you this team building. Yeah most coaches have some tricks in their bag about how to create team chair. Okay anything you have done or will do in training camp. That's kind of a fun. Coaching trick that creates team bondage. You know what i'm saying. Yeah you know what i think. Sometimes those the best things with that instance really come up organically. Here's what i would say. We've got core values that we want to operate with and when are is really demonstrated the leaders of the team demonstrate what it looks like to be great communicators to have that football character with the accountability the coach ability when i can show aaron donald on the on the film and say hey look at what this guy's doing. I always say to our players. I see better than i hear. Watching the way that they positively push each other. But that's kind of part of our on boarding process we try to create situations where guys are naturally interacting. But as far as any sort of team. Bonding i think. Those guys do a good job of kind of handle in that and then we'll do team functions and things like that but these guys really enjoy each other and i think we've done a good job of kind of assembly group that are made of the right stuff team. Bonding is the phrase. I was looking for team. Bondage is the phrase. I came out with the different big different legal trouble nowadays. You can't say that no doubt.

"License. Let me get your opinion on something. Right have nothing to do with football. But you've seen what the lakers have done in the last couple of days. Yeah what do you think. I mean mean i i kinda sorta like it and Extent it's like you know they're kind of old but at the end of day you know. Sometimes you know you got there guys and bring them together. They might know how to get to it sooner than you know. Having these young guys and having to take him through steps and learn it so not like it. You know rest overseas thirty two. He's not as but he's a vet. And then you got you know. Trevor rees is back on the legacy one. A ring with the lakers actually grew up with him. Good friend of mine but You know man last year was tough man. I i'm allegra. Fan dr fan so You know i gotta get back to that ring man. I gotta win that trophy ono man. We'll see what they got to create chemistry right. There's a lot of new new bodies for sure. Same thing out here. How's that how's that part of what you're doing going. Yeah steps man. Anything know professional sports minute steps to jalen together. I think you know the off season being able to come back off a year like the year before last. we're kobe. issue is able to get an ability to work together with guy. so i mean you can't forget about them steps and stages to you know camaraderie with your teammates and building just hanging out and doing them type of thing. So i mean as long as teams are able to do that and you know really figure out. What is this guy. And he's on a on a corridor. He's on the field. What's the back of his mind. What does he think so. Having them characteristics having guys played a lot you know like a stafford you know. Cool myself rob you know. It's like that speeds it up a faster. So it's definitely a good thing to have is around. You've worked with a lot. Of guys to sean sean jackson here long beach poly zone with this on seven ten. Espn what has it been like. Know kind of working with matt here as he's gotten here and just kind of from what you've seen from him. How impressive has he been now. He's been awesome. And i i definitely been able to watch them from afar. Not really you know. i mean. I've met him times times here and there but to really get a chance to really know understand his mental near gaza. Very smart guy and I think a lot of. I really don't really want to say it. But i gotta say but that man like he'll throw a pass and not even be looking national. I know patrick mahomes has been famous for stuff but like it's my bothering the way he's doing these passes and he's not he's having defenders go one way and throwing the ball obvious away like it's been three or four times. I've seen it like effortlessly. So i'm definitely anxious to see how he's gonna make defenders. This year spent man. When you and i don't want you to bring up matt so take out of it and you've been a league for many play with a lot of great. Qb's who's your favorite. and why. now. I'm gonna have to go back to my early days in philly mayor michael vick man. I think you know growing up you know always love. Michael vickers a quarterback and you know just watching this story and what he's been through. I quarterback you know. I pick math for me. I was like a dream. Come true man and play with michael vegan. Be able to be on a game like so many people that i don't know how many games wind which all mad at one money like michael vick ren back around and just doing the deep. Aprc so man is my favorite quarterback. Mike but i'll play with some chords to man. That was the michael. Vega is probably my favorite one of my favorite players. Watching a man could do anything on the field for sure i loved. I loved it. Let me ask you you. You had a really nice piece of jewelry on. Okay see because there was so much life. I assume he was excited to be here. He glow went. I mean that to me when you think of somebody says yo. That's nice ice that's it. That's that's a picture right there.

Backup with sean mcvay You know like. I talked about in the past. It's been a great thing to have You know the past three years. Not the past three years but i spent three years in washington so just to kind of see his success and His past the last few years has definitely been great and Just kind of back a hookup and go back home and play with him and he'll be man. So i'm excited about it howard's sean. Mcvay the assistant. Different than sean mcvay. The head coach man. I mean he's he's elevated to a whole different level man when i was with been washed. J. groome as the head coach and you know he played a huge aerobic office coordinator but now you know having his own show and being able to rent it the way he wants to run it. You could tell you know how much he's You know just elevated his game and his mental as far as offense and just playing days in to kind of keep the defense off guard. So i'm excited. You know they had a lot of success pass for years so i'm just happy to be addition beer. Do when you were on with us when you first signed.

You guys here like men the widow taking care of me. And can't you know. I definitely could get another three or four three to five years.

Green Bay predictions: NFC divisional playoff vs. Los Angeles
"It we've been talking about. The announcement. Made sean mcvay announcing jared goff will be the starting quarterback this weekend for the green bay packers or four. The la rams against the green bay packers in green bay. Where right now. The packers on pregame.com. Six and a half point favorites. It's important to remember and it's obvious green. Bay's the number one see green bay. Is the one team the gutter by so the question is how to buy teams do in the playoffs. So if we look back and say okay. Let's look at the modern era. As i call two thousand twelve and beyond and that's because it's the first year four year after the new agreement that changed a practicing and all that things is. This really did change after that. And from twelve on teams off a by or with the by the playoffs who are not favored by a touchdown or more nine and five against the spread so a wonderful. Ats record for reasonably priced by team. The number one or in the past and the number two seed now the next game. We're going to cover and we're going to finish up. The rams is going to be kansas city. Who's the other by team. They're in a different category spread wise and it's different results in that game now. Why do i like green bay. And it is against the sharks. We talked about the sharps. Like the ramps and remember they like the rams plus seven and a half they like the rams a-plus avid now element mind is six and a half. So it's obviously. I don't have to go head to head with the sharps as much as i'm getting a slightly better number and i still disagreeing with them. Though in another reason is i think the rams are little bit overrated on. Defense doesn't mean i don't think they have a good defense. I think they have a top five defense. But i think this price is telling us because we know the offense is and all that good and we know. Jerry gov is playing all that well all the doubts about golf and mcveigh's questioned that's all given how they still the sharp side. It's a defensive matter or it's an anti packers. That's the only reason you could the rams you love their defense or you don't like the pack which it can't be about the rams offense it just can't be so even though you could make the case. Oh the rams can run. The ball aggressively in green bay struggled against that last year. Okay maybe but boy if you're one dimensional. That's tough and the reason. Though i think the rams d might be a little overrated is because if you look at their strength of opposition and we're talking about the opposing offenses now. There's been numerous times throughout the year that they didn't play the best quarterback that that team had throughout the year. So let's use the perfect example. Arizona cardinals were the seventeenth. Best offense in football show right about average so the rams playing that offense their defense against that offense. It looks like okay. The rams dominated an average offense. That's a good thing except the quarterback. Wasn't the normal starting quarterback for the car knows. It wasn't collor murray. It was a backup
Let's get real about the fake crowd noise at NFL games
"Revisit the Rams and Seattle Seahawks game. I hated watching the Seahawks game because it was there are so many moments where the crowd fake crowd noise was really really loud above the broadcasters like Tom and all these trying to talk on the sidelines and you couldn't hear him cuz a stupid fake crowd noise, which is even weirder cuz you know that the people on the sidelines Jared Goff Russell Wilson, he came backed up. They don't hear fake crowd noise only people watching the game on T. Hear the fake crowd noise. I hate it so much. I'd rather honestly hear the noise of people on the sidelines. Or people at the line of scrimmage yelling. I was going crazy at one point on the sidelines. We couldn't hear the guy at all cuz of the fake crowd noise and I A friend of mine from high school plays for the LA Rams and I'm going to wait till he retires to ask him this question, but I want to have them on the Shelf someday to be like hey, what do you like to play a playoff game with an empty Stadium? I know the NFL doesn't really seem to answer that question just yet. There's a reason why you haven't heard anybody complaining about it, but I'm so desperate to know like what's it like to play in NFL game? I'll be damned meaningful playoff game a meaningful NFL game with nobody in the crowd and you can hear everything. It sounds like an empty gymnasium or an empty gym. Like I I want to hear what that sounds like and what what it's like to play in that circumstance and I just hated the fake crowd noise in the Seattle Seahawks Rams game
The Problem With Newton's Throwing Game in Rams Loss
"Version Cam Newton did we see here what he was asked to pass. Well, I thought that he saw the field decently well and I think he's making solid decisions with the football. The timing could be a little bit better and there's certain instances where I think the timing is more of a factor than others for instance the defaulted to Mere bird on the double move. The pressure really was a factor on that play and he had to slide up in the pocket to avoid the pressure. But if he doesn't have to slide up and he's able to throw them all on time and that's probably a touchdown or at least a more competitive play right instead of two guys being all over damiere Byrd at the catch point. He's behind the defense. He probably has an opportunity to catch that ball the other kind of issue that I I kind of see what the timing is on the short throws, you know, James White's production and and ability to affect the passing game has really hurt a lot because the cam and I don't need to put it all on cam. But when you see James White Run routes out of the backfield, he's the type of guy that you need to get him the ball sooner rather than later. You can't hold the ball and then throw the ball to James White the flat because of the players deserve. And to get James White one on one with somebody in the in space on the outside on the boundary, then the ball needs to get into his hands sooner than so he can read and react and make a play and make somebody Miss. So he saw that third down on the opening drive where they ended up having to go for it on fourth down cam just Waits an extra tick. It's just an extra tickets literally half a beat and because of that half a bead by the time James White catches the ball game turns upfield the DB is right on right and if he's able to get the ball out just a little bit quicker than James White has some time 15-20 yard game, right. He has some time to shake somebody and and eluded tackle or Thursday through the angle or whatever the case may be. So those are the little things that you see with cans timing and the timing of the entire operation that when you only throw the ball nineteen times and you start to count, you know, okay, you have the Mist default and your bird and there was a Crossing route to Jacobi Myers. That was a really tough throw that came just missed by like an inch or two and you have to make that pass because then you have to make the double dog. Work with bird and you have to get James White the ball sooner in the flat and these little things these nitpicks truly. They are nitpicks folks. We you go watch other quarterback play and it's not it's not all sunshine and rainbows for the other 31 teams either and I think we get too caught up in the minutiae of where is his Fleet and you know, his shoulders are flying open as hips are doing that and he's not pointing towards his Target and this that and the other thing I think it's too much conversations about those little things and not enough conversations about the big picture things, which is really just timing and kind of understanding what you know, your answers are that kind of stuff that I think is more important probably than all the little manush has like the throwing mechanics and things like that. Yeah, and we talked about this last week just under rated quarterback skill off of of being a dink-and-dunk quarterback. It's it's it's it's there's such negative connotations behind it. But the the Precision that it takes and the timing chain, And the placement all of those things is the difference between 4 yard losses and fifteen yard gains sometimes and those are big plays potentially if you hit them right and and being able to do that within the rhythm of this office is difficult seeing obviously James White be neutralized because there's not a lot of Playmakers on this team and he is one so finding a way to get him going. I think that really goes hand-in-hand with Cam being able to do this off
Las Vegas Raiders face 'daunting task' with COVID-19 issues ahead of game vs. Kansas City Chiefs
"Kid city chiefs at eight point favorite leg. I said we'll get to that in a second on the road against the vegas raiders on this game. Fifty six and a half. We will have. John cheering on later. I'm sure he'll be able to explain whether slightly above the market pain. i have to believe. That's all covid related to be quite honest. The raiders defense in the contact tracing protocol. We're not quite sure. If i'm going to have to get called up to play safety and let me tell you my foot speed not enough to slow down tyreek hill and open spaces really wouldn't say i mean i might try and slew coming off the line. That'd be my only shot. so listen. I the raiders offensive game plan back in week five was good. Obviously but the halftime adjustments that. Paul guenther in the raiders. Defensively really is what i think won them the game. It's really what gave the chiefs offense trouble. You really hadn't seen that from the chiefs offense before during this. Patty mahomes like run especially against the defense of that caliber. You go back to week. Five in the second half. Kansas city was successful. Only twenty one percent of their snaps. One point to carry twenty eight percent success rate through their moms is pressured. A ton the raiders. Were able to do something in that game. They hadn't been able to do most of the season which is get pressure vegas. Twenty six on the season pass rush win rate and then obviously after a few good games. Recently where the raiders have been able to apply some pressure to quarterbacks. They've surged to an average defense in pressuring the week. Five game if you look at some of these numbers. Mahomes was pressured on forty. Seven percent of total dropbacks specifically from eleven personnel. Were kansas city. Essentially lives seventy three percent of the time moms pressured on fifty seven percent of those three wide sets. I would envision off the bye with the little extra motivation of not. Just losing to the raiders but but kansas city not being really happy about gruden and the gang taken victory laps around the the stadium there drivers using using the loudspeaker thereafter the week. Five win that Andy reid is probably gonna come with a pretty good game plan here and you know past the success that andy. Reid is hat off the bye. You mentioned this. The raiders are are probably going to be without a few key defenders but You know another handful of defensive players are going to miss practice all week due to this contact tracing. It's probably isn't the offense that you wanna face short handed in in pissed off and not having practiced to four. I would think. I also believe we'll probably see a little more play action for mandatory. You know patty mahomes in the chiefs past game will probably fair little bit. Better here with play action. Especially if if the pressure starts to barrel down. I would also think that it's worth mentioning that three chiefs offensive lineman or on the cova the list it's believed to be contact tracing but we'll have to see this certainly make this game a little bit different. If if all three of those offensive lineman are out. You also expect sammy. Watkins to return in this game us a full practice participant on wednesday so he should be a full ghost that they're gonna have their their complement of weapons out there. The number in this thing is is really interesting. But i think that this tougher makes a lot of sense. I i just don't see. Kansas city's offense not bouncing back here in a major way talk. i mean. They're playing with a chip on their shoulder. Which is always dangerous to begin with. We've seen their passing offense. That was more a work in progress. Probably the nicest way to put it early on in the season and no doubt that was by design. Get on track with mahomes during for more than eight hundred yards the last two games when you look at the way. Mahomes performed against the raiders. Fifteen total touchdowns just two interceptions one of them of course coming earlier this year the chiefs loss as a double digit home favor and i think it's pretty staggering to know what costs kansas city. That game is the fact that hey look. They finished a net negative minus sixty four in terms of rushing yards. The raiders held the ball for nearly eleven minutes longer and kansas city knows that they can hit the home runs. That are widely available. If they keep mahomes operate i think. The raiders passing defenses. You mention it may trending in the right direction. There's no doubt a lot of optimism out here around the raiders especially on the defensive side of the ball. This is a different beast that they're going to try and counter and with sammy watkins back amongst others. I just don't know where the raiders consistently find a way to get off the field. I agree with that. And i get it. You have to young corners in trayvon mullin in our net and people are thinking to themselves like. Hey we're trending in the right direction. We're starting to get some pressure. Would you look you play at the browns. The total is suppressed because of weather and wind. You're at the chargers. It's likely a a lost game. If two guys can hold onto football on the back corner fate and then the broncos last week and drew lock was clearly injured after taking a hit in the second quarter but you could have been trailing at halftime in that game so listen. I think the raiders are better than we all expected. You look at who they've lost to. It's it's the bills box and patriots. All pretty good teams obviously bucks in bills being very good patriots. You know with bill tough spot. There is well off the monday night game traveling across the country. So i get the by of the raiders. I just need to see more defensively to believe it's real and so that that's kind of where i'm out on that unit. I fully expect kansas city to do some good things here. Offensively
