Interview with Redskins' Landon Collins
"We welcome you back. We are delighted for one more hour in Tuscaloosa. And what a treat to have Landon Collins on grew up in Louisiana people thought he might go to Lsu you and he is here now. Elaine and thank you very much a redskins single by weekend heavier great great to be. I want to go back. I I know this is a story that that's old news to you but it was not easy for a young man in Louisiana to go through. You went through. Come to the University of Alabama. What do you remember about that time? I remember a lot about it. The biggest thing I'm about as my mom picking that lets you to go to but I I continue to choose Alabama. I just wanted to be here. You know the biggest thing I know I remembered it was something that your commitment was. I think on television and And your mom your mom none-too-happy but it it worked out pretty well. I think so. I think it worked out. Very well. she's happy that I'm I'm not in school at Alabama right now. But she's happy that on. I'm still planning that. I love so I'm interested in in in this game from from your perspective because you played in some epic Alabama Lsu Games and now we're back for probably the biggest game since that season Back in eleven and ultimately in twelve remember first of all just reflections on this game from your own is on the field you played when I was playing man I remember the biggest one I played and it was at Lsu. It's hard to win in Death Valley and Was I think it was down. I can't remove is down by but I think. Td Pitch back. That was the twelve game. Yeah he's put his backup to To Tie the game I think it was we went into overtime right. I wasn't take a listen. I'm trying to remember the old time game was a little earlier than that TJ Yeldan play. That's the biggest barrier was in twelve when Ah Bless you had the lead and I think they were they were. They were attempting a field goal. That would have put the game out of reach miserable. Aj McCarron hit yelled Alden screen and That was one of the Big Little Alabama the national championship direct. Big Big play. Big play big play now One of the biggest dreams I wanted to do was beat. Lsu Home Place and we did that so so now that you're in the NFL and Y- so you have to say you keep up with Alabama football but it's not as easy I would think but your assessment of what what you've seen so far it hasn't really been tested The defense doesn't look like defenses that you played for but you have better value. Evaluation is is an idea. What did you see when you watch Alabama they? Offense is a lot of a lot of a lot of power around the AFC guys they do anything. They test the body all over to the house. So that's that's that's the that's the biggest fans they got a guy that could get them. Get them the ball as much as possible. And I'll get into the different receivers the different that would call them all over the field. Oh and then defensively I would say I mean we strong strong we get the job done and we make sure we hold officers not scoring and not getting that. It's the points that they need to get to keep in and in the game but at the same time this defense is GonNa hold up. I'm interested Landon from the defensive side of the ball because you know you're certainly you've been more than one of the best players in college and you're you're doing quite well in the NFL when when when you look at trying to defend against Alabama runs you help us understand from your standpoint. How do you do it because You got four wide receivers that are going to play. You got to who speaks for itself you you got a running back who's overlooked and Nausea Harris. WHO's still big Tom Player right and I realize you're only one you're only one man? I I think they think the overtime game was in fourteen. Okay so you are correct about. That House attended game. Two that was very Alabama should have lost that game. Sign very very
"landon collins" Discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show
"You want it. You need it. It's what everyone's talking about the Kevin Sheehan show now here's Kevin and Erin the smell test. Now ten straight wins Aaron courtesy of two lane last night with an all time miracle win. I had no business winning that game first of all for those of you that were tweeting me when Houston was up twenty eight seven telling me what a fool I it was for giving out to lane minus five how quickly they forget Aaron like ninety no last week. How many people gave you a nine and a week last week. Just hang in there with me by the way you'll never see nine. INO- again. I'll never do it again. Typically when you get on a heater like this. It's only a matter of time before it comes crashing down but it didn't last night to lane was down twenty eight seven and somebody tweeted me or and at some point rue grit coal on on they're gonNA run the ball over Houston while they ended up with three hundred twenty five yards rushing roared back they tied the game they took the lead then they got lucky at the end with Houston getting stopped and being held to a field goal and then two lane when they got the ball back with twenty seconds left. They ran a trick play. That was brilliant. It was they were lining up to two in the they showed that they were going to kneel down and accept overtime and instead. They handed the ball on a tricky he number two one of the guys that was protecting the quarterback as he was supposed to kneel down he ran for twenty five yards that set up an opportunity to throw for field goal range wjr listen when you're laying five. You don't feel goal you want overtime. They throw the ball over the middle. It's complete and I was like God damn they're gonNA kick a field goal but he broke two tackles and ran it in for a touchdown thirty eight thirty one to lane that was an old timer and it keeps the win streak alive at ten. I have another her thirteen selections coming up in the smell test here shortly it is a Friday football show but without a lot of the redskins game in preview because they play on Monday night against the bears but I'm going to start with some redskins news. this happened yesterday. After the podcast fast actually it happened during the podcast and we just it was at the end of it and we decided not to address it because really the truth of the matter is most of you. Don't even know who this person is. Tony Wiley is the senior. VP of communications our was in with the redskins organization during the show or towards the end of the show yesterday eight Tommy or Aaron. One of the two of you showed me you know breaking news. Tony Wiley is resigning from the redskins organization and he's going to go to the Special Olympics in which Tony the best and that's a hell of an organization and probably a much better run organization than the one that he's been in for ten years but only only with this organization is the resignation of the Pr Guy Breaking News in just like last year when Brian Lav Amina was fired fired. Neither guy ever made a tackle through a pass caught a pass through a block yet. It's breaking news when somebody in the organization. That's not on the football side of the organization resigns or gets fired. That's the organization's fault I mean. Obviously there's been so much drama over the years that there's all this reporting reporting about. You know recently all the employee's that left the office but I'm I'm seriously waiting for someone in a press conference to ask Jay Gruden. Hey Jay manual loss. Tony widely yesterday. How's that can impact your pass pro against the bears on Monday night like seriously there's no other place where this would be a big deal except here most of you have never heard of. Tony Wiley unless you remember the moment in the Dallas game when Colt McCoy's coming off the field and they're trying to interview him and you hear Tony Walk Up to the reporter and say no means no you know typical redskins bullshit shit like these being interviewed on the field by the ESPN poor taste. Guy Antoni comes up and screams no means no. He Yanked Dustin Hopkins away from a reporter reporter after the remiss the field goal in London. You know there we are you know. The American football in London Redskins are playing a game against the bengals in a a foreign reporter wants to interview one of the players in Wylie comes up and makes a scene a look. I will grant you and concede. This point that anybody working in public public relations for the REDSKINS has a near impossible job you know but they haven't helped the situation in recent years. I've knocked their. Pr Our department and part of that's been knocking Tony Wiley over the years. They've never really helped in these situations and again. It's probably an impossible job because you're answering the people that really have no pulse on what the right public relations move is in yet. They're very adamant that they know exactly what should be done so you're in a position as the PR guy you're. Oh you know you're working for somebody. You can give them advice but they don't have to follow it and maybe that's what happened over the years but you know whether it was suing the city paper putting out press releases claiming victory when the US Patent Office decisions came in that impacted the name issue in a positive way like that was a total total act like you've been there lay low. Don't say anything let the actual decision speak for itself but they're they're. They are putting putting out press releases and quotes from Dan basically with his arms raised in a V was stupid. Nothing was worse than the public humiliation attempt of Scott McClellan with the quotes that were leaked to the Washington Post. About what a drunkard McLuhan was you know. Even if that were true that was about as low road is an organization sation can get with someone who wasn't doing very well more likely than not and it was so transparent to anybody that was paying attention that it was a concerted shirted effort to make McLean look bad in the organization looked good in justified in firing him the whole thing backfired somebody you know in a PR department department needs to be able to talk. Dan and Bruce doing something like that but again I I would. I would certainly assume that that job was never easy for Wiley but anyway the fact there's any reaction to a Brian Latham Meena or Tony Wiley getting fired is totally a result of the constant ongoing drama at Redskins Park and the fact that this organization is abnormal in almost every way in a normal organization. Fans don't know the names of the non-football people people. Pr People Sales People chief financial officer the Chief Operating Officer. They don't know those people they know the owner they know the GM they know the coaches the players there's in some cases they know you know some other key football people a key scout or the assistant. GM or whatever I've mentioned this before but did anybody have any the idea who the VP of sales are the head of PR was when Jack Kent Cooke was the owner of the team and they were winning. These are insignificant names to fan bases in most the cases in the case of Lav Amina. We knew his name because the organization made such a big deal out of the Higher Snyder saying that it was fresh thinking and Brian's big ideas we're going to be implemented and he was thrilled. He had one of the most highly regarded. NFL executives in league circles I mean they built them up and they built him up because they wanted the fan base their customer base to think that Bryan Lav Amina was essentially going to become the face of the organization instead of Bruce Allen. who was you know a face and a voice? Nobody wanted to hear from anymore and there Bryan was last summer you know making the rounds bounds in the preseason games on television talking about the fan friendly enhancements at the stadium and how the organization was going to be more transparent and more accessible and and I mentioned this this morning on the radio. Show my God did the other station. soak it up man. They may they thought Lav Amina was the was Jesus Christ that he was the savior and they built him up into be seriously the guy that was going to turn around the organization gobbled that up Hook Line and sinker Tommy me didn't I shouldn't say everybody that stationed. Tommy didn't Tommy on this podcast. After Lav Amina Remember when Lav Amina admitted there was no more season ticket waiting list and and I was like Oh my God that's an admission. That probably doesn't make Dan and Bruce very happy. I can't believe they signed off on. This and Tommy came in on the podcast and said I hope that guys renting because there's no way he lasts a full year and he was right of course but I get it. Everybody was hoping Lav Amina was here to replace Bruce Allen which was never really his job. He's just going to run the business operation and and it was huge news when he got fired because Dan in Brusett built them up so so big and it it appeared bruce had pulled off a power play to get rid of him and that's probably what did happen although I don't think Dan liked him very much at the end either but the takeaway from the Tony Wiley News. Is that ninety five percent Senate. NFL organizations could fired their lead PR guy yesterday and their fans and local media would have barely noticed not in this town you know not in this town I would I recommended when they fired Lafontaine and not to tell us who replaced him and I'd recommend the same thing with Wiley. Don't make a big deal out of the people that have nothing to do with the football operation because you're just setting yourself up for a future you know new story because nobody lasts in that organization why lasting ten years is a record anyway. that's enough of that I also wanted to mention one other thing and I did this on the radio show this morning. Landon Collins was interviewed by a New Jersey. NJ NJ DOT COM NEW JERSEY DOT com two days ago and asked about his thoughts about Peyton manning being benched and Daniel Jones getting his first start as a rookie and Landon Collins couldn't help himself again did the thing that he's been doing which is running his mouth about his team. He said you know essentially she called Gentlemen Aligarh. He said he lied everybody. That's a man I do not trust. I would hope nobody else would too and I tweeted out. I'm like why can't the new guy shut up about the old team that played for their own to. They've got the worst defense in the league pretty much it's enough already. They're playing the bears. They're not playing the giants. Some some of you said well possess. What is he supposed to say. He's supposed to say I'm not commenting on that. We're focused on the bears the bears coming in on Monday night. We haven't won a game yet. That's what he should say. I mean my God since he got here. He has been so distraught over his ex girlfriend. He can't stop talking talking about the giants and gentleman. It's unbelievable to me how hurt he is that they didn't want him and how much she hates gettleman. He said what what was it three or four weeks ago that he's going to run over when he sees him on the field in the meadowlands. He's talked about the the eight games. That'll get to play against his former team to hell with those eight games. I mean you're in to get the bears coming up to me. This is reflective of of a no discipline no accountability organization and with little discipline and even less need to be accountable. The chance to win win is diminished. This bothers me. It bothers a lot of you. Some of you think I overdo it on this. That's fine. You're entitled to your opinion. I've never seen an organization produce so little but talk so much over the years. Never the Redskins are kings of as I've said it of over promising and under delivering it's just been one thing after another over the years and so many times it's the new guy that comes in and and he's talking about things if I were the owner after just in recent weeks right Rob Ryan. We've got a top five talented Defense Josh Norman. We're we're going to be an all time. Great Defense. Landon Collins can't get his ex-girlfriend off of his lips sorry about that. That was pretty you you think of that in any way you want. I'm talking about words spoken about the former girlfriend. I would personally handle this way okay if this were my team. If I were the owner of this team and clearly this is not been done I would gather the team and they're big auditorium out. There in Ashburn got a huge huge auditorium. Were they hold the big press conferences. I put up on a big screen. All of the examples in the past year of interview knows you know Oh. You don't tell people that you're playing that. Your defense is going to be an all time. Great Defense. You don't obsess over your former team and criticized the general general manager at the other team because he didn't want you. You don't say publicly that it's a slap in the face that you're running back. your your hall of fame running back was deactivated. You're GONNA handle that. You're going to go directly to the coach to talk to him about it. You don't like in recent years. you know say as Ryan Clark Arctic this is the Best Secondary I've ever been on in August when you're playing on a secondary that didn't include Troy Pol Malo that was laughable. Trent Williams and dubbed them hogs two point. Oh and said that they would have a top three rushing offense one year rex Grossman predicted in NFC title. The list goes on and on and on. I could do this for for an hour. They've been the kings of over promising and under delivering. If I were the owner I'd get everybody in the auditorium..
Which college produces the best NFL talent?
"A special edition of N._F._l.. Live on deck today at the N._F._l.. Celebrates one hundred season just six weeks away however we are just five weeks away in college. Football Opens It one hundred fiftieth the anniversary so today welcome N._F._l.. You were combining the two worlds to answer age-old question what college produces the best n._F._l.. Talent however I'm Wendy net sand Hutus here you know what's better to be on this panel our expert notice icy expert telling me when Lewis Minute of her panter on the list not on the House for back the quarterback guru he and his brother in a lot of N._F._l.. Games James A lot and Ryan Clark. You see the L. L._S._U.. They are ills college football. L. Is Jonathan Vilma bike. He will join US shortly. He happened to win a National Championship and Oh by the way a super bowl as well coming up on N._F._l.. Live will break down position by position which college produces the best quarterback Oklahoma has the number one overall pick the last two years we have the top ten plays all the N._F._l.. Superstars when they were in college and answering big question which school produces the best all time N._F._l.. Talent we had to ask the players themselves to kick things off. We're the first pick quarterback Oklahoma Viva say Oklahoma Alabama Clemson because proven it is one atop factory the Ohio state highest in Alabama. 'cause I never lost beat out. You really can't understand it into your inside. Sadness programming is all about the you for N._F._l.. Because of Georgia in every aspect but I think L._S._U.. CRESA environment of gray competition and guys is trying to feed off of IT University of Pittsburgh. You Got Dorset. Dan Marina you got Larry. Fitzgerald was not a me show. It's about having everybody involved in working for the Sandal clumps in would cushman he's been doing. He's making people believe everything is possible for House is the best our stop it. Stop stuff well. Let's start shall we with the most players from each college currently in the N._F._l.. Alabama leads the way with V with sixty five players players followed by Ohio state in second place with fifty eight so we're going to debate these schools I in terms of who is best at producing N._F._l.. Challenge here's a tale of the tape on Alabama at Ohio state success since the two thousand draft folks tools I have had thirty one first round picks the most of any school while the Buckeyes have thirteen more total picks in the last twenty drafts but Bama's players have been slightly more successful in the league producing three more pro bowlers than Ohio St Louis Rick. Let's start with with the crimson tide. They're starting eleven if you will offense and defense current N._F._l.. Talent there's any question that these are both very impressive lineups that if Alabama can roll these teams out there right now now. I think they'd win a few games without a doubt. If you look at the offense aside outside of the ball the first thing that jumps out of these starting eleven are the two wide receivers look Julio. Jones is one of the finest athletes in the N._F._l.. For guardless of position he's in the news right now because he's about to get a new contract extension and he's really one of the he's one of the transcendent players at the position that this game the scene Amari Cooper the same way. When Amari came out of college? I remember doing his tape in thinking point honestly as far as catching one pet and run wide receiver. I hadn't seen one as good as him as him. In a long long time on the defensive side look they have fine players throughout the eleven here really that when you get to the secondary and you guys like Eddie Jackson Landon Collins I mean these guys are disband tastic players on the front dont`a hightower our multiple time superbowl winner. These are great great players right here. Make our way to Columbus shower of the to Ohio state you go to the offense side of the football. Look the first thing that jumps out without a doubt as Ezekiel Elliott because if he's not the best running back in the N._F._l.. He would be considered a top three running back in the N._F._l.. Wide Receiver Michael Thomas Really someone who was unheralded coming out of college. He's a tremendous tremendous. Pro will probably be the highest paid wide receiver in the N._F._l.. In short time then move over to the defensive side of the ball this this is where really this football team really kind of jumps off the board starting up Front Joey Bosa Cam Hayward those are two of the best defense alignment in the N._F._l.. Right now and then when you look down there at the Secondary Malcolm Dyson Dinkins Denzel Ward Marshon Lattimore doesn't let's get much better than that. All right Jonathan Vilma made his way again surly qualified to weigh in on this discussion. Look I mean there's a shortage of talent with either of these squads. It's almost ridiculous factory and a lot of ways both of these institutions but let the debate again a Ryan Clark. You can't pick L._S._U.. Just yet but when you look at this group what stands out L._S._U.'s better than both of these things we're gonNA get to that. We're supposed to be talking outlets. Let's be honest. There's amazing players. Neither one of them have a quarterback right before proven yet though little I mean why don't we always have to see something first before we can get you well Ray Richardson running back right you saw God compare that with you why time gentlemen we're GonNa play Nice Got Ninety minutes ago. You're the Glenn Difference from every other position that we're looking at okay fair enough now back to you Louis. It is a production results oriented industry. Is it not so it is fair to say seeing something. Does one believe they'll be success won't sure but I mean we're we'll see this is kind of like a combination of what they have done in college. What some of these guys have done in the pros in some of it's a little bit of projecting about what they're gonNA continue to do in the pros? That's how I'm going to expand it to that all right so at quarterback quarterback Dwayne Haskins I believe right now. There's no comparison as far as I don't care what A._J.. McCarron did it Alabama cows tape. Those Wayne has close exact Haskins is going to be a fine football player. What's going to happen to him? Really is going to be more predicated on what Washington redskins overall due to him then what he does to himself. I firmly believe that as far as these rousers overall look the wide receiver position Julio Jones Amari Cooper. Julio Jones's the standard if you go and look N._F._l.. For an offices and look in their scouting books books every team has a standard at every position that they put for scouts the suit for as far as whenever when their scouting people polio is going to be on that list for for many many teams he's about as good as it gets so skill positions at Alabama are awesome. The defensive players at Ohio State is what stands out for me as far as their front seven is concerned particularly their defensive line and their secondary Denzel Award Marshon Lattimore. You tell me a team that wouldn't take those two young men right now and startled. Let me ask you a specific question since you spend some time as an analyst watching these players at the collegiate level if you had to choose either of this group Alabama Ohio state who's players really got better or who took a bigger step forward than you anticipated when they got to the N._F._l.. Out To you to dance your last part no neither standout. They're pretty equal because watching these guys watching Jonathan Allen he played okay well Dante. I'll tell you knew who is going to be tremendous player defensive player C._J.. Moseley's same thing and then you go to the other side and you look at Joey Bosa Nick Bosa Darren like Malcolm Jenkins. I play with Malcolm Jenkins in in New Orleans knew he was going to be a study. He's Philistine but what is surprising how fast or House they defense is. I did not realize how fast defensive you think big ten you didn't big Brawley guys not so fast but these guys can move joey. Bosa also can move nick volks in Darren League. We know the Burner Malcolm J. Denzel War March. I mean that is a very very talented athletic fast fast defense. I thought I was going to jump in your rookie. I think that's a great question Wendy about as far as what teams teams have players that have gotten better pros. You look at Ohio state this look at their offense. In particular Michael. Thomas was a good wide receiver to hire Stayton. He's fantastic now. He's GonNa be highest paid wide receiver in the N._F._l.. Andrew Norwell most people wouldn't even know Andrew Norwell well what from Andrew Doorbell he right now just judge Moore Norwell can't open open some N._F._l.. Spectacular and even on the defensive side of the ball. I didn't think Marshon lattimore. I've liked Marshon Lattimore at Ohio state. I didn't love Marcet. He has taken his game to another level as well in the really own Alabama side you know how I feel about Alabama I feel nick and what he does and how he builds his program but really focus on their offense align that was just look okay and think about that question. Wendy Wendy asked how many players have gotten better how many have continued to improve Andre Smith may have his best days at Alabama. Dame's carpenter has really been good pro Brian Kelly the jury still out he could be a he's a good player. He's GonNa play already in Indianapolis D._J.. fluker was he ever ever really that guy that dominant guy no. He hasn't been Cam Robinson. Have you seen story so it's interesting because they're preventing people have been many people who've hit Alabama and said they get the best out of their players at Alabama. Maybe it's good discussion legal where people go by what teams there drafted so we look at Michael Thomas he falls into a place where he needs an accurate passer and he's one of the most accurate passers all the time also about the place you land in ashore and how they develop you ask Josh Rosen he absolutely he knows that all too well. I ten Hasselbeck. The whole point of this is to pick one of our producers here a little bit we talked. I'm going Alabama mainly change quarterbacks. Yeah I think looks great point about the offensive line at Alabama because so many of them when you look at them just in terms of body type you're like Oh my God look at those guys body type wise but like I don't know that some of those guys have come in and be like Oh and they got a whole lot better. We're obviously splitting hairs here on this ongoing Alabama Lewis Sorry Nick. Oh from a hustle change your mind or did you stick the way said one because I don't care if between Haskins hasn't played. I think he's I think he's in the saints. Stratosphere is A._J.. McCarron so I like that I liked it their offense of line one of the things that talked about how they develop those guys on the defense aside but they're fun four plus their secondary this going with them Ryan Clark you have to pick one while I was brought here for one reason in one reason only when the Knicks because everyone knew it my answers it would be and what Tim Hasselbeck has proven is. You don't need a quarterback. That's really he's GonNa be Ohio state in Alabama that don't have quarterbacks guess what we don't need a quarterback back and by the way you don't want our first off was good enough for Bill Belichick your boy to draft him as Tom Brady's heir-apparent draft. We thought they they went to L._S._U.. Because this guy has what they decided to we throwing the ball all around the field Andrew Whitworth he's played a thousand years. There's a Guy Jerry go look at the Neil hundred may has like negative two percent body fat Michael Broncos out. There aren't key. We gotta wait on them but it's are are you at the back of position. That's all we got mad. I gotTa get here all even have to work conviction when you spoke scissors. I'm sorry I just so tim. I love your twenty. Two question your toughness Whoa West I've seen because as you know what fair enough he's at Alabama alum landon dare you wait into the circus that we've created. But what do you have to say about this. Whole debate ain't Ryan got some good good good stuff going on say? I wouldn't question his toughness at all. I don't know why you questioned Ryan toughness. I saw him not got a lot of Alabama's always number one no matter Corolla tyrod. Let me ask you a serious question. You know obviously nick. Sabin is a hall of Famer one of the best ever coach this game but specifically what does he do that has allowed such historic success at the university. Steve Alabama <hes> as a coach he speaks for as a coach. He represents his players as players coach. I would say he makes all this coach. All the players are on the him as a player as a father <hes> <hes> and as a as many tried to teach us they'd be a man and a great play all at one time you know so he does it all leading. Can you please tell the people why you are now better that you have trusted your career training with the guy from L._S._U.. Hey right you agreed trying to grow been gone on gone for years

"How. Dramatic is the one game wild card to advance to a best of five against the number one seat well even if it is just a wildcard racist of a pennant race. There's what six teams within about three games of the wild card right now so that's going to be. I don't know if I would say jeff is exciting as a pennant race but it'll be very exciting to see that I definitely so. There are a couple of other things that I wanted to get to. Tommy mentioned <hes> some of these N._F._l.. Power rankings that are flying out right. Now you know pre training camps many teams teams. Actually several teams are already in training camp right now most report here at the end of this week <hes> but I did I I saw this story and I'll be honest with you. I must have missed the original story on this Landon Collins Michael Phillips <hes> from our our friend from the Richmond Times dispatch <hes> tweeted out yesterday that he chatted with Landon Collins and that the flight marshalls nickname is no more quote. Oh No. We don't have a nickname yet. You've gotTa let the fans make that up. You can't just give yourself. A nickname closed quote that from Landon Collins I had not heard the flight marshalls nicknamed to begin with. I think the redskins social media media around the time when they signed collins had those press conferences was slightly tried to push that I do remember that being a thing and Kinda rolling my eyes at it okay now what I what I read was that this may have been a nickname came from late last year. I don't remember that at all now late last year. A lot of us were checking out even though we were talking about the team we are watching more of other N._F._l.. Games and other N._F._l.. Teams but I I just I had not heard the flight marshalls thing. I'm just glad he said what he said because this organization has spent far too much time over the years with self anointed nicknames it names without any production or success either previous to <hes> prior to to to naming themselves whatever they've named his name themselves or afterwards I it's been annoying to everybody to hear you know Oh capital punishment or you know hogs two point. Oh or whatever it's been in recent years without any performance any success so I am glad that he said what he said I would have been if I had heard today today for the first time that Landon Collins nicknaming <hes> his secondary or defense the flight marshalls I mean what is the flight marshalls anyway. What does that even mean? I don't know it's like it's like you know some. I can't remember who was there was the no fly allies zone and some team. It's a secondary clearly. Yes all right so they're gonNA Marshall over the air. I guess I whatever it is it would have been I would have killed him for that. I've already been upset with how much discussion of his former former team he's had in the predictions of winning super bowls plural. You know that leads me actually into this O._B.. Jay this Odell Beckham junior stores speaking of Collins Cindy also say that he was never going to refer the giants by their name anymore yeah and that you know these were going to be the most important games like for the next four years or whatever the eight games against them. We're going to be the most important well you know. You got fourteen other games each one of those years that you've got to play well in but it leads me into this Odell Beckham Junior story in g q where the quotes made the rounds yesterday he said quote he felt disrespected by the giants <hes> Mike this is the actual quote quote actually quote..

"No, they work people to go to the game. Like, you know, the toasted league there were there were young people. That, that just figured based on their name. They actually played in LA like they were the third team in LA. Not, not, not helping I'm serious. I, I remember a conversation with one of my kids friends, a few years ago when Golden State got really good. And he was convinced they played in LA I said, no they actually play in on it today. But anyway, so you, we both like Golden State to get through. I think Portland does have a chance to play well at home and win a couple of games and even though I'd love to see Toronto do it. I like I, I had Milwaukee five before, and it may, you know, maybe quicker worked in that because the opportunity that Toronto had may have been in game one similar to, you know, sort of the early se- series opportunity, that maybe Boston have you out and surprising to me is the way that brook Lopez showed up the other night. I mean, I don't think you're going to see that again tonight. But he can shoot. He's always had a good shot. Yeah. But like that shooting with credible. That was gravy for them. And you know all the. Was weird about Toronto's remember few seasons ago? This is such a team. That's all we ever talked about depth deaf. Now, we're like, well, where's the depth coming from like, you know, who's gonna come in and give them some quality minutes off the bench and suddenly, that's a real mystery for, for Nick nurse in the raptors? Yes. All right. What else do I have for you? See the Landon Collins, quote from the other day about winning Super Bowls. Yeah. Yeah. And now and now Josh Norman making jokes about the ghetto men working for the Redskins or helping the Redskins or something like I missed that wouldn't normally do. That's a new one today on pro football talk making jokes about, you know, he hates cattleman obviously, they'll get them in random at Carolina. So he's making some comments about get them and helping them run the giants. Of course they have to put him on salary. Norman said. There you go. There you go. Well, you know what? I mean I I'm sure I'm sure the everything they're talking about will play out once the regular season starts as our good friend, Richard Walker once said, nobody does Monday through Saturday better than the Redskins. It's just Sundays. That seem to be the problem. Yeah. I, I'll tell you what. I you know, look, I'm like everybody else. I'm hopeful and I liked the draft. But I gotta see it in practice. There's just, you know, hey there's just forces, you know, sometimes it does seem to work against it, but we'll, we'll find out. We gotta wait. I'm not I'm not really. I don't know about you. I get worn down every day in the tweets about how great the season's going to be. And they haven't even had a training campus. Unbelievable, what they do this time of year. Here's the quote from Norman you read it, but there's more he said, if we have an alliance with that guy, I think we need to put him on salary. They need to protect Dave Gettleman at all costs up in New York for sure. Protect that man at all costs because he's winning for us closed quote book God. I mean, we're going to own the giants for the next few years. This is gonna be awesome. I mean, remember how, how great that nor that Greg Norman Odell Beckham junior, you know, rivalry turned out for the two best teams in the NFC east. How about those, you know magical match. Matchups between the two when the giants and the Redskins were playing for all those playoff stakes games. God, that was awesome to watch the last few years. It's incredible. All right. I'll talk to you soon. Thanks bye. Take care. Thank quick. Word about three to one. All right. Thanks to Scott Jackson..

"The PGA championship Scott told us van pelt told us yesterday. Brooks, KEPCO and kept co was in the midst of good first round when he said that, but he had picked him in, in a golf pulled that I'm actually in that same pool with Scott and KEPCO went out and shot, sixty three yesterday seven under par today. So far this morning disaster all over the course. Rory mcilroy. Who, by the way, was one of my two picks for the majors you get two picks in the pools in the pool that I'm in. I have Garcia in McElroy. Don't ask me, why I you can't use the same golfer twice during the course of the PGA season, and I've used a lot of good guys. I had tiger in the masters as one of my two picks, but McElroy started the round five over par through his first four holes. Not good. And he, he was as of now he seven over so no chance for McElroy. And Scott did tell us yet yesterday. Okay. He said, this is going to be a big boy leaderboard. It's not going to include McElroy. But so far kept cut Dustin Johnsons, making the big move here early in the second round. So I, I agree with him. I think by the time we get to Sunday, it's going to be some big boys on that leaderboard. And I think, you know, I am waiting to see if tiger can go out and shoot. A good number today to a make the cut because his plus two is probably going to be right near the cutline probably inside of it. But if he were to go couple of couple over par today he could be on the wrong side of the cut. But can he go out and shoot? Sixty eight sixty seven and get himself back into this thing. We'll find out later today. So Landon Collins the Redskins safety acquisition. Big free agent acquisition from the New York Giants. He's been doing a ton of interviews over the last week in last night. I got caught up on several of them, and I wanted to go. Through them with you, some of the quotes that he's had over the last few days that I think are interesting. He was interviewed by Ian Rapoport, Ian Rapoport asked him, you know about the quarterback, you know, Haskins and, and, and what he thought of Haskins and, and Collins said, quote, honestly, I thought he was going to the giants. That's who I thought they were going to get meaning Haskins to the giants. That's who I thought they needed. But they, they decided to go elsewhere. When I saw we picked him up, I was like, we just stole the best quarterback closed quote that was landing Collins talking about joint Haskins. He also had. He also had this to say about twain Haskins. He said, quote, he's a humble kid very, very, very down to earth loves to smile loves to play around. But when it comes to playing football when it comes to putting in the work. That's what he's going to do. Great armed, great accuracy. I'm excited to have him. I know the organization is and other teams are going to be afraid of him. So said Landon Collins he was also asked in another interview about, you know, the contract that he signed here and the giants letting him go after four seasons. And he said, quote, I was kind of heartbroken. It was very, very I opening. And then he said, you know, he had told ESPN on draft night, a more motivated than ever before. An and he then said about Haskins being picked up. And remember when Haskins was drafted by the Redskins on draft night? Haskins made the quote the league done messed up closed quote and that quote, by the way, is going to be attached to Haskins for his career. Because if the league done messed up, you know, he. He had he was right if he goes out there and kills it and Daniel Jones doesn't the league actually done messed up. But if he doesn't go out and kill it and Daniel Jones ends up being the quarterback. He's gonna look foolish for having said it, but that is a quote. Let's be fair here. You know, doesn't matter..

"The biggest disconnect between what the common perception of the Beckham returned was. And how the giants have at least publicly defendant is how how Gebriel peppers is value dettlement is going to continue to say that you know, he was a former first round pick. And you know, so that equals a first round pick. But that's bogus. That's not how this works. That's not how trade value works. If that's the case they traded you like apple a first round pick four fourth and seventh during the season so quickly they apparently got very ripped off there. So when you look at peppers peppers almost like has to be good. And he just hasn't been that player to this point. When the trait happened, I wrote a peppers, and he's basically just a poor man's version of Collins. And if you wanna talk about the cap, you're only paying peppers one point four million this year, it only goes up a little bit next year. But then if you pick up his fifth year option, that's like the average of the top ten contracts. So he's going to get a significant price raise in in two years. If he's still even on the team at that point. And if you're not picking up the fifth year option that probably means he wasn't good. And that you completely whiffed on that pick. But that's. That's a different story, but peppers is. He is the bucks eighty has some deep of -bility, but he has struggled in coverage of five touchdowns last year. Sports postal at him with five touchdowns out a lot of it was just getting bullied by bigger tight ends especially in the red zone. I he just gets pushed around so that's that's not promising. So to consistently hype him up as a first round value in what you've got back is just absolutely one hundred percent, just a flawed a piece of value there. Here's what they've got him and said he said he also has punt return ability and at the bottom line. He's a quality three down player in the old days when I started you could have what we call a box safety a guy who is to down box safety you can't anymore. The game has evolved in your safeties have to be legitimate three down players. And that's what you're Brill. Is that? Yes. He is a three player if you play him for three downs. But normally you are not taking your box safety off of the field in nickel downs. They never took. Landon Collins off the field. They you have to you might have to be smart about how you play them. Try not to put them in situations where they're going to exploited. If they're not almost cornerback ability in coverage. But to say that a box safety is only two down player. I I think, you know, Landon Collins Kam chancellor guys like that are can be huge on third down, especially in lids. Happy defense. Yeah. Ju Bill Evers does fill the land and Cullens role just significantly worse at everything lead in Collins did and maybe with better he plays a widow better than he did with Greg Williams. And maybe that's not a str-. Stretch because we you kinda joke. If you see some of this screen shots of the Greg Williams safety, that's like twenty five yards down the point about parking what you up to peppers played a lot of that in twenty seventeen. He played less of that in in twenty eighteen but then he still struggled in coverage. So maybe he improves, but the giants are really banking heavily on that happening. And that's that's still a huge bet when you trade for veteran players, and I've been a big proponent of trading for veteran players not a proponent of.

"Twenty two yard touchdown. Four years. Eighty eight million fifty million guaranteed, and let me say this about falls. I'm happy for the guy. I'm glad he got this money. But one thing with this amount of money. They're giving foles about twenty two million dollars a year eight million. I mean, who would they bidding against the only thing I'll say, you know, who else was gonna sign Nick foles. I understand that. He's people like him. He's a good quarterback. But the only spot logically were Nick foles could start was Jacksonville. So I don't know if Jacksonville may be needed to give them all that money, but they did. And now Nick foles has a new home. Speaking of tea is speaking players with a new home. Landon Collins was not franchise tag by the giants. But he's going to be still playing the giants twice a year. Landon Collins signed a six year eighty four billion dollar deal with the Redskins forty five million that is fully guaranteed. And you know, Landon Collins would love nothing more. But to do this. To ally. Manning next year. Landon collins. One. Kevin Harlan on CBS with the call. Listen, the giants to me still look like fools for how this unfolded because they got nothing for a guy that a team in your own division thought was worthy of eighty four million hours. I get you didn't want to give Landon Collins forty five million guaranteed. That's understandable. Landon Collins is getting more than what it costs a cost. The giants to franchise him the giants slapped the franchise tag on Landon Collins, it would have only cost eleven point three million. Landon Collins with his average annual salary right now at eighty four million divided by six is making fourteen million dollars per year. So his agents got him an extra three million dollars per year. Now, what the franchise tag would have been. So Landon Collins said, okay, don't franchise me. I'm gonna go get more money on the open market. And you know, what he did? So I understand the giants not wanting to bring it back because if you think he's limited, and you don't think he fits that's your prerogative. But to not get anything for the guy. Landon Collins in your own division. He might be able to hurt you next year. Those games are going to be fascinating Cowan's making tackles on Odell or lining up against Barkley. In fact, giants it's probably love that. Because apparently accounts can't cover so get saquon online to Collins, and we'll see what happens, but. How about that? Landon Collins wasn't good enough for the giants. But he stays in the division and scientists six year deal. Unbelievable. Other news they hit on here. And we have a lot coming up. In case you missed it. Busy sports weekend. Trey flowers has a new home. New England didn't franchise them flowers signs with the lions a deal worth reportedly about fourteen fifteen million dollars per year and the lions continue to try to be the patriots. They also signed former patriot. And most recently former dolphin wide receiver Dany Avin Dollah to a one year deal worth about four and a half million dollars. Here's the thing with the lions. We're trying to be the patriots. But they don't have Bill ballot. Check Tom Brady. So they're like the minor league patriots. But they're going to do their thing. They're GM is a former patriot front office guy. Bob Quinn, head coach, Matt Patricia. I tried to trade for gronk last year that didn't work the New England Patriots are now turning into the Detroit Lions or at least part of the bar. Our their news kion our sorry. Alec Zander four year fifty four million dollar deal with the Niners. Really good linebacker. Maliki? Jackson signed a deal with the eagles three years thirty million and big trade. Today. Eagles traded a late round pick to get this. Sean Jackson back in Philly about that Jackson was gonna either be released by the bucks traded eagles swoop in maker trade and to Sean Jackson gets traded back to the Philadelphia Eagles. How about a move for my team? No, it's not bell just yet. But the jets signed Jamison Crowder to three year. Contract. And it's a really good move to help Sam darnold. Crowder, someone that could be an impact player in the slot. Crowder, someone that could go out there and help Sam darnold in this. Adam gates offense get him another playmaker. So the jets who needed to add talent period. Add some talent today by inking. Jamison Crowder too many three year deal sticking with the lions tight end. Jesse James signed a deal with the lions. And this story to me is fascinating. The bills decided to sign Frank gore to a one year two million dollar contract. Frank gore is thirty five years old. He will be thirty six by the time the season starts next year. And you know, what I got nothing but love for Frank gore. This dude was in Miami last year. He's choosing to go to buffalo. On his own. He loves football so much. Frank gore is going to be thirty six. He's been in the NFL since two thousand five he plays a running back.

"The shell Pennzoil performance line. Landon Collins really surprising that the giants didn't franchise tag and hang onto him. He's a three time pro bowler only twenty five when teams are looking at him. Are they just assuming that Gettleman and the giants don't know what they're doing or have some secret plan or do they assume that there's something wrong with this guy that we don't know about? And that's why they let him walk. Well, I think no I think they look into it investigated and watch the tape. You know, I think that's that's the key evaluation. I don't think that there's any any hidden thing with Landon Collins, where he's, you know, somebody you don't want your team, they're making valuation with how much money it's gonna cost apparently in saying it's not worth putting on a tag. Well, I think there's other teams see a guy who's you know, in his mid twenties. And yes, he's not a multidimensional safety. Who's going to run side is inside thank coverage, but for a specific role. I think teams are going to like him. I think you could. Easily. See, you know, that's the type that. He's he would he say ideal type of guy you want to start him because he's young. So I'd be watching for him to have a good market. Wouldn't be surprised if a if a, you know on the come rising team is trying to improve on defense like the coal. You know, we're we're involved with him. But we'll just have to wait and see Mike. Is there anybody that stands out to you that you think is going to be particularly active next week when everything gets rolling? Yeah. To me. I think I mentioned the jets. I think there's an impetus there to stands. So they're an obvious one. San Francisco, I mentioned, I think has the motivation this year to do it. And like you said the Rams are intriguing to me because they're always up to something. I think they're going to try to work system. They ended up coming out of last year's frenzy with two complex this year. Which is usually what you get for not being active yet. They were as active anybody, so always looked to see them. And I kind of a wildcard team that doesn't have it hasn't had the great cap space, but has always sort of found a way to do something. I think Philly's interesting not huge spending screed, but they could be they could do something that, you know, catches your attention quickly before we let you go Santa. We're talking to Mike Sando. He can follow him at Santo ESPN on Twitter it Spain in fits does. The fact that there are fewer free agents big free agents out there is that is that any way possible going to change draft day in terms of teams needing to make more deals too. Get things done than they can just go out on the free agency market and get them. You mean making deals around the draft like trading draft picks, get guys. Yeah. I think so. And the thing that's happened is essentially doesn't seventeen those compensatory picks. They ended up thirty two every year, you can trade them. So I think that is also feeding the increase in activity, and you know, there's a few younger jeans. I think we were just more open to doing that sort of thing. So yeah, I think I think the NFL opened for business, and we have focused so much on free agency free agency for injury. But there's other ways to get players. It's it's not discrepancy and dragons moving those picks to get better and guys it's happened more widely. I think you're right. You're gonna see that again. Awesome steph. Appreciate the time. Mike. Thanks, mike. Thank you. Mike Sando brought to you by Pennzoil synthetics taking synthetic motor oil performance to a whole new level. Make the switch to Pennzoil synthetics.

"You gotta go back. Most though. Was signed by Gettleman. Right, but get them, but Beckham also on the trade bloc. I know I think the message is maybe like what did we do here? Well in a in a league where everyone's trying to hire young trying to hire people who have once gray touched, Sean McVeigh. They went and hired like the super old school guy, and the super old school guy is doing old school things. Right. Getting rid of guys that aren't his guys. Yeah. Drafting running back number two. Although he is amazing. I mean, you have to I think my biggest irritation with this whole thing is a that. Yeah. I would like them to keep landing Collins. Yes. Let be it's all these mother fuckers on the internet having this ridiculous. Hot take that. We're the same guys saying you're an idiot positional value roster equity like that's why you don't sign a safety to a big deal unless Ed ride LSU guy who can roam the middle. You cannot pay four linebacker big money. You pay the safeties that can go sideline to sideline the big money fine. He's not that guy. Yeah. But I think there's a middle ground where you don't give them a bunch of guaranteed money. But if you do want to compete this year, I think keeping Landon Collins at eleven million dollars make sense. But I don't maybe they don't want to compete using the franchise tag make sense. Always. It's there for ownership it air for the team. Why would you not use it? That's well, you know, you would have dealt with a holdout situation potentially from from retracting understanding the rules of the CBA. You should always use the franchise like why wouldn't use the franchise tag on a player like that? I I'm loss for word. I was that's why I opened up the podcast for some insight from giants Ryan Kramer. And the the most interesting thing is what we had a lot of stories last off season about how the safety market wasn't there anymore. Right. Like the dude who knew Nell to didn't get who didn't play for for months. Eric reed. Eric read it was all about the the safety market. Now, it's the complete opposite. So in a way, you maybe maybe you end up signing him cheaper. I don't think that works with Landon Collins because he's going to get the big money. But maybe you fill that position with a guy who's pretty decent for half the money. You would because we know how the market goes. After the big guy signed it. It's a black hole because not everyone needs a safety. But to the giants care about the salary cap. What in what regard well in the? Regard of ally Manning's salary if you want see now, you're being the hot take, Sean I'm saying manning has a twenty three million dollar cap it I would have got I would have moved on from manning two years ago. What Sean, you know, it's always great to talk about the past and tell history lessons, but that that doesn't affect where we are today. They total maybe they should have moved on from him. But they didn't. And they're here today. And there's nothing they can do with that money as I understand it. I think if you cut him you could still free up some caps. I think you know, the whole it very much seems only point two million dead cap. So Landon Collins Earl Thomas lamarcus Joyner Tirona Matthew Adrian, ammos, ha ha Clinton Dix global Quin.

"And Ray Hanley was replacing Bill parsoes. I really started like watching. Barry Sanders became infatuated with him. So for that reason. I watched a letter I feel like I watched a number of Rodney peak games. Yeah. And how could you not be a fan of Barry Sanders? I I was a huge fan writing Pete when he was on the eagles yellow had awesome move where a Cowboys fan came up to him after. The show and asked for a photo. No while wearing a cowboy hat, and he said you have to take that hat off before. Which is as an eagles fan. Just a just a dream. Come true. Right. You speak giants. And we're gonna be hitting on some NFL free agency will be getting some early looks at the conference tournaments. But we gotta talk. What's going on with Lehman counts? Right. I have a tweet here. Okay. From Dan Grazziano. All right. Of ESPN Landon Collins, he's twenty five years old has made three pearls and been a first team. All pro the lack of room loves him. The fan base loves him for the team that drafted him to let him walk when they can hold them in place for eleven point one five millions is just a brutally bad decision. Let's talk about this Sean because through two guys Manning's been name the star. He has been named starter. Hold on hold on. You can ask your question. The second. I need to set the stage because the guy I'm glad you quoted, Dan Grazziano. He is a notorious giants hater as Evan Silva. I'm sure you we've definitely re tweeted some seven Silva stuff talking should I get them in. These are both guys who would went to the grave on the positional value positional value don't draft a running back number two right now while I think the giants should've kept landing Collins. I like Landon Collins, I do think he has limitations on the field. But Sean, you can't play the position the positional value card nine months ago during the draft when to shit on them when they took saquon Barkley who looks amazing and then say, they're idiots for not paying safety eleven million dollars. But he's an all pro I love seeing. I like Landon Collins. He's a good player. He is very limited. He's not a roam the field kind of safety. I wish they would have kept him there. I completely agree with the is these guys are saying like this is stupid. You should keep this guy. He's a locker room guy. I get all of that. But it's just annoying because from a positional value perspective. And I maybe that's the most frustrating thing. They're making the right move. There's tons of safeties hitting the market tons of really good safeties. And do you really want to invest that much money in a guy who land, let's be Frank? Landon Collins is going to be out of the league with CT in three years. Maybe four I like the guy you're Suming CT strangely. Strangely. This is this is a better. This move is better if he hadn't done the complete opposite earlier like he's playing a positional value card right now that just doesn't it doesn't go in line with taking a running back number two. And for the flipside these fucking media members who just like the hot take like I enjoy reading LV Evan Silva stuff. But his it's almost like whiny bitches the way he comes after the giants. And it's like, dude. Like wh where where you're like are you a Cowboys fan? Are you are you just you just you just wanna be heard Jordan Ren'ai? Now, he is a ESPN NFL nation during the New York Giants, another another relative, relative douchebag. But sometimes takes the back of of ownership. Yeah. He's he's is a local guy covering the giants. And his take was Dave Gettleman better, be careful. This Senate dangerous message to the locker lane. Unkowns was a quality player. Captain did everything they ask. And the giants showed little desire to keep them. Get them and draft them, right? Yeah. He didn't. And that's the scary message. Right. Yeah. You're not a Gettleman guy..

"I want Landon Collins in golden Tate from the two one four signing tank would be a bust, man. People are pretty split down the middle on this. I'm a little surprised there's a there's a point in this that that I can't get over to y'all side just yet replacing that defensive end. Well, you gotta look at if you're looking at this year, and you're looking at this year as we. We need this to be the best team. It can be. Yup. You not sure if you're going to have that opposite defensive end that was starting to look better at chasing down the quarterback. And now, you're not going to have your your tank your war daddy. But I also have a defensive coordinator defensive line coach that's the best that loves using guys that have no name. He actually feels like more confident that he can make those guys better by if they are nobody's end that he could turn them into something. I understand that. I I really do. But there is something to be said that the reason why they got better is because they had more talent on the line. Then when he just had a bunch of nobody. Okay. I I do agree with that. You're right. And I do worry very much about the potential regression from the defensive line as a whole and then the pass rushing aspect of it. But at least in this instance, I can go do something as a plan b like. You know, I'm a crazy planner. And the thing is like I just wanted to know if somebody's like, oh, I don't know. Maybe I hate that answer. Like if you can't do it, then that's fine. Just tell me you can't do it. And I feel like right now, we're stuck in the land of maybe with tank and what I'm really worried is. They're going to be like, well, I guess we'll decide our own guys will bring him back. And then maybe we'll come up with some money in July. When you can't do anything with it. Cool. What have you done to make this team better? And you're right. If I lose tank, my teen, theoretically gets worse, if I bring in Collins and Tate does that bring it back in a different way to where it was. And then I can still keep making moves because I'm not stuck in this weird holding pattern. That's the thing for me. I don't disagree with you at all that you could slide with this. But I need to do something. Because if you just work on this off season and just resign all of your same people. What the hell makes people think that this team is going to get to the Super Bowl. Then. I, you know. I mean, what what the hell tells me that they're gonna make it to the Super Bowl with no pass rush. Because it's at least different like at least, I can try a different option. You look at the last four teams in the NFC. You got. I mean, you lost to the Rams, you know, it wasn't like emphatic. But it wasn't like you were particularly close for the vast majority of the game. You would have lost the saints. You're not in the same class classes those same two teams right now. I don't think so then I would say attack it from a different direction because the direction that you have if it stays the same. It's still not good enough. So you're right. Could it totally fail? Absolutely. But I'm not going to do the exact same thing that I know doesn't work. All right. So all right. The exact same thing. You know, that doesn't work the very unknown thing without a pass rush. Right. Is there a way Kevin that I can make that can bring both of you together the come together on this work something out here. All right. Here's my suggestion. Earl Thomas is the one right? Yeah. All right. Earl Thomas is too expensive. Right. Yeah. That's why I didn't use. Okay. So but Earl Thomas is too expensive. How much is he going to cost you fifteen? That's what he says. He wants. All right. So fifteen million dollars is too expensive. But that's the playmaker. You want to go next to Xavier woods, those two guys kinda roam around and do their thing and be the talented playmakers in a lot of people. If you listen to Jeff talk man, Jeff is just like, look, I get it Collins is young. He's got all this talent he could hit, but he's a box safety. He's a guy that is he struggled the last couple of years in pass defense. That's been his big problem. He's almost one hundred tackles every year. But do you need him to do that? If you're good with your pass, rush and you're good defensively. Upfront. So is there a way Kevin because fifteen million dollars is too much? Yep. What if I found a guy for you that's around seven to eight million dollars, but might want a little bit of a longer contract. Maybe seven eight million dollars a year for a three year period. That's totally fine because I was willing to extend a longer contract to Landon Collins, Landon Collins is going to be thirteen twelve. I say twelve he'll want like five years if you can save six million dollars and have three years or somewhere in there that world would that make it? Okay for you. And you get to sign tank. Okay. Who we getting iron Matthew all the Honey badger? No, man. He's still got a little work to do with the Texans. Because technically, I think they still like they're running out of time with them. I think March thirteenth is that kind of window or they really have to have to decide on what's going on there. But you see a lot of roster bonus. But the Texans are sitting in a situation to where they're looking at. Hey, look, we got the Shawn Watson who is a franchise quarterback. Here. We got a couple of other guys that are going to need some money too. So they're working on that tired Matthew while he's one of those guys that he's not kind of like the ideal fit for Rodman LA because they like to add bigger guys. He's five foot nine one hundred and eighty five pounds. But. He's exactly what makes a free safety a special football player. He's the kind of guy that makes plays. He's he does all the things on the field. He can cover. He can tackle. He can do all the things. So what if that's the guy right there that becomes the eight million dollars over a three year period? Or maybe even he maybe he wants five. Maybe he's like, yeah. I want give me five years, and you can do something like that with that guy. And now you're able to keep tank Lawrence and maybe make another move. They could set the team up. Maybe you can even add another cheap wide receiver in the slot. Or you can do something else there. Let's see. So we'll go off the idea of eight for the Honey badger, and I guess my guess right now is going to have to be twenty two for tank. So you're spending thirty billion you already got about fifty five right now, though, you can find a way to make that go up, and that leaves you with twenty-five whether you want to take care of your own people or if you want. To say, hey, maybe we can convince cold veasley to come back for five or six. Yeah. Instead of nine or ten like, he's an inferior receiver to golden Tate. He wants twenty million is kind of the warranty a world that he's looking for. But I think Ben's, right. If you realize you're gonna come back to Texas at some point to live the rest of your life anyway and being a cowboy and having that star on the side of your helmet. Every thing you do set you up for the future of your life. I think that's one of the things that Kobe's like you come to realize is the money that I can make after my career is over being in the area and just being a cowboy is more important at some point. So that's that's where I'm thinking they're still chances. But Kev as Kevin's pointed out on a number of occasions. Here's the problem. They can't really go. Hey, that's the right deal for us without signing tire. Matthew, I and they're probably not gonna do that. Because the money that they have to commit to tank Lawrence right now in the negotiation. In process, and the way they're pushing and pushing and pushing that back, so I don't know if something like that could get done because of the way that the Cowboys do business if they aggressively got out there and said, boom, boom, boom deals are all signed tank. What do you want to do? Let's go play some football. When a Super Bowl, I think they can make this happen though. And if that's the case, and we change our general negotiating stance. Then let's go do that. I'm totally fine with that. I'm not the person who wants to send tank outta here. But all I know is in eight days when free agency opens if you don't have this figured out than I don't know what we're doing. I really really don't where the KFC masterpiece right here on one five three the fan coming up next. We'll do my buddies in idiot.

"landon collins" Discussed on Around the NFL
"No grind in six days in a row with podcast anyone here know about that. What I wanted you on. Josh does an awesome job with with the really kind of cavalcade of stars that you have run through that show. Josh smart. He's kind of the main one, and then the rest just rotate, so everyone knows who's the most employees. He's. Sun, and they're the plan. Right. And so different guys come on different days. And all that. And it is really good rota world football podcast. They started it. Too late, but they've made up for ground. I know you were pushing for it for years before they let you start it. That's the only reason why I'm saying there's no money in podcasting. Right. Except for us. We're just drowning in it. Yeah. Drowning in all right? Thanks, josh. Thank you. All right. So that was Josh. And before we go, we do have one last item of breaking news. We got three items of bringing that's what west. Ahead on six. Well, first of all this better be real the falcons in nounce that they are franchise tagging, Grady, Grady, defensive tackle. Yep. Adam Schefter has been told that CJ Moseley will not be franchise tag by the Baltimore Ravens. And rap sheet is reporting that Landon Collins is not expected to draw the franchise tag from the giants. Wow. I. It we we forecast that before anyone. The Landon Collins news chain west got another one grab sheets. The wording is the giants are viewed as unlikely. Okay. Well, we got twenty four hours. So at this point, he's he's probably not getting the tag. He's going to get very close to the top of our rankings Grady Jarrett. That's no surprise. He was ranked number three player overall. So that is no surprise the top one hundred list in it's a wonderful thing. But then it's like immediately burned to a crisp like the only name value products on the entire thing or held by their own teams. No, I mean. Yeah. You know, most of them are gonna go, but we're going to be on your, right? The top is now going to be lady on bell. Earl Thomas tree flowers. Foles? Landon Collins Collins, I mean, we've had much worse years at the top put it that way a year where it was like Maliki Jackson, and then like collect assembly or something one that our timing of the release and updates is suspect. That maybe we should wait until after the franchise tags and before we do this. Now people wanna know they wanna start thinking it's all about the page. They're getting more. I mean, right. You're saying In for for the. the absent the page views. Yeah. Like the top ten guys on your list every year or generally the top two guys. Right. Well, it's a good discussion and CJ I had reboot the entire project and give it to to other people. Mark Moseley Moseley interesting. He's the one that I think they really wanna keep them. And it's a rare case, I think they if I had to guess, I bet they still will find a way to keep them. Even though they're not going to tag them. They just don't want to start the discussions at fifteen million a year. Right. I don't blame him for it inside linebacker. Maybe the Browns of steel I don't know why just feels thought and they just kills a guy who's just going to come in and improve the culture and make your opponent in the end to their season with an interception. So. Help them out. It all comes back around on Wednesday. We will be back. We have a Twitter show early this week. I believe it's Aaron early unless unless we're pre-tape in it is airing at ten thirty Pacific one thirty eastern time. And then we are taping the podcast after that. We will also be back with the podcast Friday morning. Dan will be back on Wednesday. For cecil. The quiet storm Chris Wesseling. Mailman? That's it can't Brown. Josh north. Evan Silva, everyone. We'll see a Wednesday..
Giants are unlikely to franchise tag Landon Collins
"I will also say that I was in have been very much surprised over the past few days by what seems to be the giants willingness to allow Landon Collins to enter free agency Tuesday is the day when the giants have to decide whether or not to use the franchise tag on Collins to keep him from entering free agent. A week ago. I would have said that I thought it was pretty certain that the giants would do that. After listening to Dave Gettleman on Wednesday in Indianapolis. I'm not so sure I think that Gettleman talked a lot about distractions. He talked a lot about how upset players get when you use the tag on them. He talked an awful lot about eliminating distraction. He talked a lot about the financial ramifications of using the tag on Collins, and what that would do to the giants ability to improve their team and use their their Capri sources, you know, in free agency in other things. So to me, you know, I've been a little bit surprised over the past few months to be honest with you that there seems to be somewhat. Of disconnect between Collins in the giants. At least I have the impression that there is that they don't quite see things the same way, whether that's Collins value, whether that's the position in how he should be used you know on the field by defensive coordinator, James Becher. But I just don't think that the relationship between Collins and giants management is as healthy or as good as one would hope that it would be. A veteran scout told me that he thinks the consensus around the league at this point. Is that the giants will not tag Collins that they will allow him to test the free agent market. And at this point, I have to agree with that. It's you know, much to my surprises. I said I would not have felt that way a week ago. But I think that I think that Collins is going to be allowed to test the market, and we'll see what that does to the giants defense will see how that we'll see how all of that plays out soon enough.
Giants: Return of Landon Collins and Odell Beckham unclear
"To other giants had bits Gilman show shot down. Not that. We didn't suspect us that. It was all kind of just February BS, but Gillam said we didn't give Odell Beckham junior a huge contract extension to turn around and trade them. So just let's why don't we put that on the no touch on this podcast any Anki? Odell trade speculation. That's good. And also Landon Collins I'll throw to when you guys heard somebody thought it was a little saucy. So Greg was you Alantic Collins again, there's been a lot of speculation about what they're gonna do with the former first round pick. There was speaking of shenanigans talk about them empty on his locker last week. What is his future with the giants? It's murky. Well, there were there were some spares that maybe they didn't value as much as as let's say, Chris, and I did when we ranked the free agents we talked about that on the last show. And then he had this common Gettleman today that when? They were talking about the tag. He said, let's talk about eliminating distractions. You tag a guy and he's mad, and that's all you guys are gonna write about for six month. That's what it's going to be. So I have to say to myself is that worth it? And that that was telling to me that he was when they asked about bringing Collins back. He was very ambivalent about it. And it made me think maybe he's just going to be a free agent made me think of Josh Norman, he's already been through this right to me. That's not that Landon Collins is in good. It's that I don't wanna go through the same thing. I went with went through Georgia combination to me. 'cause if you think he's the best safety in the league, you just would do. I would think you're right. Norman catis flat-footed Gettleman surprised everyone by tagging them that year and letting them go, and I guess maybe it's gonna be a little concern. If you're voiding the franchise tag, which gives you another year to negotiate and work on keeping this player around because of the annoyance factor of writers writing about it between now and September,
Projected Over-Under for NY Giants: 7 Wins
"East the projected over under for the New York Giants is seven wins in two thousand nineteen. You know, what I'm going to say they're going to hit the under the natural. My national decision was go over, but every single year we feel like the giants are going to be a better team because they've got out the Beckham junior and they've got now saquon Barkley, and they have all these pieces in place and year after year. We watched them go out and struggle because their quarterback is still one ally manning and their defense stinks. They're saving grace used to be oh, we've got an events. Like, we've got a good defensive line. That's carried us two Super Bowls. Now, you've got Landon Collins. You knows what's going to happen with him. Probably the best player in that secondary. Janoris jenkins? I don't know if the table would indicate it, but from from watching him without the all twenty two film. It seems like his play regressed last year asked did the rest of the giants. They picked up steam towards the end of the season. But another quarterback question here if they stick with ally. Manning that I'm going to agree. The over under around seven wins is a push. I think there'll be about seven or eight when football teams and

"Landon Caroline's actively fix every single one of those problems, and he doesn't a position that we've been super at because we just simply don't know of Eric berry is going to be able to play if spirits going to be up for it or heels going to be okay with it. So you get Landon Collins you allow to do anything he wants to his defense. You can play any coverage you can rotate guys in and out that was a huge part of why they were so multiple with the giants. They could have Collins go deep man coverage come up in the box. We're gonna let Craig report my argument. Now, I did the same hints. I'll be quiet. Let him do this thing now. But I think this is the answer planning Collins. Okay. Ready for my rebuttal? This'll be good love. Landon Collins, and we need to sign him. Right. We also need this. I an Anthony Barr guys need to be joining the chiefs defense. Landon Collins needs to be on this team spags as defense is predicated on having a good box safety. Eric berry isn't healthy. They need a good box safety. Landon Collins just makes all the sense in the world. I need him on this team Anthony bars a luxury pick, but I also need him on this team too. Right. For me cover the defense. It'd be happy guys. Don't want to be happy not bad. Chris kind of fun. I paid one hundred dollars on the for the pay per view of this. This was so disappointing. Like, this was just come on guys. No late in Collins, Z sor-. What do you have against this? This was a fantastic fight. This one exactly how it was supposed to go. Wins. Yeah. Coming from the winner who. Who? Fish bite from the get-go though. Because Craig kinda got the position that's less defined. He got a player that hasn't been with Bagnall before. And quite simply we're all tired of listening to the safety saga and Kansas City right now. Nobody's going to vote against bringing Landon Collins who was literally elite with the same exact coach before it makes so much sense. Now, I won't make an actual video of me pouring out as soon as the giants put the tag on them because that's just the way being chiefs fan works. But until then I'm going to be begging my chest for Landon Collins chiefs. If it's the market. He's the best player to hit the free agent market this year position anything he's the best player to hit the market this year while that's. That's that's a quite tick their plant him in the light spot. I agree is long as you not ask me play deep. You're right. You're not wrong. All right. Let's up at the mill Beck. Here. We got a lot of questions to cover, and we will cover them right now with ask goose this asking curious why Mike Smith would jump so quickly with this defensive coordinator change. Do you think we'll see any other changes to the defensive staff what we already so under day? So what my is true? Yeah. Mark daily on is gone as an inside linebackers coach. I don't think that he's the last one either I do think that we're going to see a little more shakeup. I'm not sure that emit Thomas is going to be with this team. Whether that be just him retiring or just being done. I don't know. I assume that l Harris will be with this team as well read could probably do with a move of some sort for my sake. So we will see kind of. How this defensive coaching staff shapes up, but Mike Smith is the one guy that we all kind of wanted to be here. And you know, we we've found at the table a little bit for him to be the defensive coordinator so him not getting that defensive coordinator job and then promptly getting fired. Just kind of says that they want their own staff. They want all new which is why I think that Britt Reid. Mike get moved because it does seem that maybe that defensive coaching staff is going to be gutted a little bit. Otherwise, why would you move on from the guy who transformed your, you know, your players you're pass rush? He coached defensive line before this isn't a big deal. It's not like he was just three four outside linebacker, right? The only thing he's ever done. He was defensive line. He coach this defensive line..

"They were in rural Thomas that. I I believe to raise they were gonna make a move. If Earl Thomas had ended up on injuries or if he was on into reserve. Landon Collins went on Michael case show yesterday and said the chiefs were heavily involved with the price got too high. So they backed off at the end, I'm happy, at least to know that the chiefs were either going to really do something at the trade deadline or they weren't going to make a move for the sake of making move to get marginally better. They re they're going to swing for the fences or not swimming. At all I liked that approach. I would not feel better today if they spent a fifth round draft pick on a guy that marginally makes them better because that's a resource to me you can use in the off season to get a significant piece. I mean, a to leave from the Broncos he got traded four fifth round pick. You can. Make significant moves with draft picks that is normally don't happen at the deadline. It's cool that Brett visas GM who is at the craps table. But you don't have to worry. Like you're saying about him going on tilt which gambling means. I just lost a have to do something to do something to make my money back. Like, you're right. I think he was really smart with the pixie wasn't going to overpay. Because again, the chiefs are seven and one, but you like that he's involved and he's at the table. And he's looking at every angle to improve this team. I mean being aggressive, which I think he is an interesting see is doesn't mean you gotta go make dumb moves. So you're right. I mean, the guy has the guy has a he's got somewhat of a restrictor plate on him when he knows it's not the right move. And that's the kind of GM that I want Kansas City, and it felt kind of good that that they were all linked to like safeties and deep half of the field players, it just just kind of confirms like, okay, I'm not crazy. Like, that's exactly what I think the problem is too. And that's the only position I have seen them adding not not really any other position on offense or defense. I think really made sense. Do you guys wish they had picked up haha Clinton Dix? Not for third round pick. But for a fourth or fifth something like that. Yeah. I was I was definitely interested in him. It's just that. Like, I think the first three rounds like the chiefs have shown like they got a pretty good hit rate on those draft picks. So I just want a little more out of that. And I don't think ha ha Clinton Dix or, you know, not even Landon Collins was going to be like like the missing piece. I think they definitely would have improved him. But you're still hoping berries coming back. There are two big pieces of information. That were missing when it comes to Clinton Dix the health status of berry if he's completely healthy and the chiefs really feel that they're getting the full Eric berry back then you don't need to make a move Clinton Dix. And then there's another thing is if berry isn't healthy. And then this is the other piece is future, which no one can really tell. But if you get to a playoff game, and you look back in the AFC title game, and you're one play or to play short or something where it's four in the forties and the chiefs end up losing by three like, they didn't New England you're going to look back to and say, maybe if we had Clinton Dix things would have been a little different. And I think that's the fear for chiefs fans right now you have a historic off. That's right now. And what if what if you get beat forty five forty two in a playoff game and you wasted the offense. And I think that's why that'd be my guess anyway. Well, you guys got so much traction on the trade deadline right on Air Products. Because man, we've got something. We've got the hard part figured out here with a quarterback the thing that we haven't had over the last night since Lenny was here. And if and if they don't crazy, isn't that crazy? I mean, if they didn't make a move and defense is what cost them a chance to go to the Super Bowl or get to the AFC title game fans are gonna go nuts because of that..
"landon collins" Discussed on WFAN Sports Radio_FM
"Trade because giants have made it known that they are tearing this thing down and going full rebuilt. Well, you know, that's just another team that's going to end up going into the rebel process. And we have to at MSG with the Nixon the Rangers. Actually, you know, it's going to be a long painful process because in the case of the Rangers. You know, they still have veteran players that will be likely to be traded at the trading deadline that will be attractive for other teams that are in the playoffs. You know, the the range have bunch young players, but they also have older players that are playing significant minutes both on offense and defense the jets while they're revolt started when the moment Mike maccagnan traded up to number three pick. And luckily, luckily for them the giants selected a running back and Sam darnold fell to them. So maybe there rebuild is a little bit on a quicker or faster pace simply because of the quarterback situation. But the giants are doing what I would do if I were in their situation right now. I have no problem with it. And believe you me when these general managers are calling around and they're talking about different players. They are trying to find teams that they think would want a particular type of player, and then they are using other teams to go back and forth to try to extract as much in return as they possibly can. So don't think for a minute that the lions were the only team that Dave Gettleman was talking to he's talking to other teams tried to gauge the interest in his players and to see what he can extract from them in return for compensation. So I'm actually happy to see this because it was last week. I said all right. We know what the changes were at the end of last year. You got a new general manager? He got a new head coach, I o del got his contract you lie man and came back saquon Barkley bronze the what we're going to be the changes now after another horrific season, and we're starting to see it. I mean, they're gonna they're tearing it down there blowing it up there. Purging all of the guys that Jerry Reese had here. That's usually. So the guys that were selected or signed by Dave Gettleman. Those guys will remain here. You know? Nate solder the draft. Of course this past season. So all those guys want them stay in here, and they'll try to rebuild this franchise. And I'm going to have to do it on the fast track. And look giant fans. It's it all comes back to one particular position. What is the situation moving forward? Long-term at the quarterback position. That's really what it comes down to. And if they continue to do this. They won't come out and say it, and the coaches and the players are going to go out and play and everything else. But this could be a, you know, suck for the duck kind of thing. Let's let's tank it. But let's not say we're tanking it. But it is obvious to everyone. What's going on here? The defense was too good on Monday night against the falcons to continue to play like that. So they traded away two guys from it to get worse can continue to lose game, Stephen Merrick. What's happening? How you doing? So. I started to call. I kind of heard GIO say Cleveland Browns, and I kind of agree with that free life. But. I'm gonna ask a question. Everybody was saying the ground to the Yankees and everybody also said. You never gonna tolerate staring across town. If this guy has a lot of success same thing with Andrew Harr. So here's the football question. Would they ever trade them in conference because the guy that is going to take all his chips and push it to the middle of the table for Odell Beckham Bomo who the guy I know you're thinking it's probably Jerry Jones, but they already just gave up a first round pick for Mario Cooper. And I think you know, that's about as far as they're gonna go. I know I do think however GIO is on something onto something I should say onto something that if there were a team that you'd trail del Beckham junior to would be the Browns because they have the money they have the young quarterback. They would now have a 'nother explosive receiver who would be United with the old buddy of his Jarvis Landry. They gave him a twenty million dollars signing bonus. So I don't see that happening. And I would think things change though, man. This is what I said yesterday in two weeks. Well, yeah, I mean think we'll think about this. I gave him that contract when they thought that they could still win the division. That's when they gave him the contract. They did they gave him the money before the season started when they thought they had shot. And now everything's changed everything there one in six they know they stink. And they're blowing it up, and here's the Beckham junior went on ESPN and crushable, right? And how is how is owed L and Landon Collins how are these guys going to react to these people being traded? That's the other thing that you have to take into account. How does the locker room of this? You know on the raiders traded Khalil Mack. How did the locker room? React. Oh, they didn't like it at all when the raiders traded DeMarco Cobra how did the locker room. Here's the problem. The problem is is that there are players that are chirping and Oakland saying, hey, if you say one thing Jon Gruden and then you do another. We're going to have a problem. He said that they were going to build their entire offense around Amari Cooper before the season started. He was traded before week eight. So Al tweeted, a Landon Collins tweet about from our show account about this trade, and it was what hashtag bro from Landon Collins and yesterday was hashtag man or something like that with the apple trade. So if you answered now, you know that the players in the locker room are all aware that they're losing teammates and probably buddies. There's that they probably think are good players. Maybe they're not good players who knows. But they think they're good players as these teammates are going walking out the door to these other teams and these guys get left behind the morale of the team is going to be in the toilet right now. And there was a lions player. I forget who tweeted, let's go snacks. And then Landon Collins wrote back to bra go to sleep. So he's not happy with this. Why would he be? He also just tweeted was looking forward to hot Cheetos with my dog, hashtag snacks. Oh. Not eat those hot Cheetos with somebody else. Somebody else. You know, he he is a so Landon Collins is a good player. He's having a good year. He's playing well. But he also is you know. Voelkel? You know, I just you wonder how that goes over inside the building to meaning that he could be another guy that gets traded people. He's all over the place, man. No, he can't treat. Landon Collins, a young guy, I know is. I'm looking towards Vernon and Jenkins, and the money is the guys that are here that they're not happy with to me if you're going to rebuild. The Landon Collins is a nice piece to build around that defense around. I would not trade him. Let's go to Johnny in New Jersey, Johnny. What's happening? Hey, good morning guys. So I was like. I don't think that a lot of what's going on is totally on him for these few years. But last year, I was in support of benching they put in Davis Webb to see what he really giving you now this year. I think it's time that you got to see what this kid other has no talk about in whatsoever. It's it's what can we dreadful next year? You got a kid sitting here that you put his at the third round pick fourth either aid. They don't believe in them already. Or like he can't make the same mistake. You may last year. Start him granting. He's got no one in front of them. And see what happens. You know, we don't we know? We know what Alex Haniyeh's, right? We know that he's not a long-term solution. They should resign. Davis Webb offer. The jets practice squad. That's what I would do Long Beach. Well, what's happening? It will good morning guys. How are you going on? Well, completely agree with everything you're saying I am islanders giants fan. So I've seen many rebuild from out of the two teams like what's going on. But the reason why I called because I'm not on the Twitter. I typed in stock for the duck into Google, and it was stolen from two thousand fourteen article out of the Tennessee titans fans wanted to stop for Marcus mariota. For the duck there. Okay. So resit marash. Yeah. Yeah. What's going I? Well, thanks. Yeah. That's too bad. You should get into stay Slater outside. He made claim parallel writing. Yeah. That's true. Yeah. I should get. I would love to see guys in the street going toe to toe, right? Actually, you marash bigs getting all up in each other's face and grill out there that could be interesting. Yeah, I'm the only one by the way, that's actually trying to change my unhealthy ways. That's a good job. Those guys have not stopped. Like there was a time at Carlin had kept his my fitness pal up there on the computer in the back tracking his calories and trying to eat better. He wasn't doing a good job with a couple of cookies in their chips. He was typing in there while you're looking kinda fly for a white guy. Cory mccutchen gory. What's happening? Hey, good morning guys. Just going to see what you guys think about getting shut down park, Florida, shutdown Barclay. Now like me don't let them play anymore. Interesting and ended the season. Well, we we got more than half the season still the go I understand Bloomberg. But still we resent injury that we lose it for next year. So. Look, I I get what you're saying. I know you don't wanna lose them and everything else. And it doesn't seem like there's reason for him to play. But. He's there to play. You can't shut them down. If anything like the logical take out of this. If the giants start getting getting blown out at the end of games like he can come out and Wayne Goeman men can go by that. That would be what I would say. But you're not shutting down your second overall pick and his rookie season Garrett in poughkeepsie, garett what's happening. Hey jail. Ben while how're you doing Gary on, well, listen, I know you pretty much established the giants stop. But when I want to know is what about the entire New York sports franchise. It's really produced anything in quite a while. And we really have some mediocre performances teams like the niche the match the Rangers. You know seem to need to get going. What do you think about the whole? I mean, it's awful dies in New York. It's horrible. And you compare the two closest cities the tourist the two closest cities tourist the two closest cities to us that are similar in Boston and Philadelphia what their sports franchise and how much we care and you got noth-. Those teams went through a rebuilt in Philadelphia not up in Boston seems like they just reloaded have been reloading, but you know. Great choices Bill ballot. Check has made great choices to brass keys made great choices. But the point is they're winning in these places. Good team to that's the thing. So they are winning. And we're not there's no question about it. And I think that you know, for for the way that I like what the Knicks and Rangers are doing going back to them because it's obvious what they're doing. And the Knicks do not have an all star. They're all stars got a bad knee. Right. So he's not playing so they're playing with a bunch of young guys cast off guys playing hard for coach Dale, I see it, but they are still white years away..
New Orleans Saints acquire CB Eli Apple in trade with New York Giants
"One on how good of a player. He is where do you fall? Well, you know, and I talked to Matt Bowen who I think is kind of the best marriage of the two that we have at ESPN because he was a safety in the NFL for about ten years. And now he's really become an analyst who breaks down a lot of film and stuff. And you know, I mean, he admits he goes, I I can't analyze this guy because I can tell you how much I liked him coming in at the draft. I can tell you how much I liked him his rookie year. And he was you know, you really fell off fell off last year and obviously has the outfield. Up and down to say definitively anything about it. But I mean, if you're comparing to a guy you would draft in the fourth round the obviously has a higher than your typical fourth round pick. So. She found this year. So you can't beat the price. You can wonder could this be a potential locker room disturbance problem? But usually when you get a guy who has been humbled, and and you know from all indications after after last year's issues, he's been on a better path. And he's got some of his old college teammates in the locker room. Sure. They did their homework on them. And you know, he's probably going to get a humble version of that. But there's no questioning what the upside is. I think they'll give him every chance to beat out Ken Crawley. And if he's more than that, it could be a huge upgrade. Yeah. I was just going to ask you about the off the field stuff. It's such a weird topic for me. I try to stay as far away from those as we can't especially, you know, this in the modern social media era where everybody just wants to blow up every little thing. And I gotta tell you Mike when I saw Landon Collins call out apple last year. You're not talking about a grizzled vet their you're talking about a young guy himself. Thinking man, I don't know if that's a good look even for Landon Collins there, do you think then apple there's a concern there in the locker room with the saints. Or you think it's overblown there in the Big Apple? Wow. That's that's pretty disturbing. I mean, that's not over on the guy goes on record saying that. Team leader. So they have since you know, Landon Collins is has made up, and obviously the giants did not get rid of him, and they gave him a clean slate this year, and he started every game for them this Houston played pretty well. So indications they felt like there there was room to kiss and make up and get him back on the right track. And he's been on that right track. So that's all a good time. But there's another side they traded away for four hundred. So this is a team that's federal. Players, and they deem Tim extendable. So you know, they didn't just win the lottery today. But like I said the talent that he was the number ten picking the draft. He's he's not so much of a cancer that they had to get rid of him. He was starting for them this year. So they got something for them and they decided to move on. But, but obviously the saints are in a position where they get the upside of it's there, and if it's not there they can walk away and Eli apple the fifty fifth rated cornerback. According to pro football, focus, which tells you right there look at one of the thirty two should be a starting corner for thirty two teams in the National Football League talking about it with Mike triplet here who covers the saints for ESPN dot com and ESPN's NFL nation. So this saints team,
Bring it on! Dak Prescott not daunted by Giants S Landon Collins' gauntlet
"I know they refuse to do a face off with one another. The other day the promoters are hoping they will at least do a face off tonight, but they anticipate that both will refuse. Apparently, Camilla was very, very upset that his character has been brought into question by triple and his camp. Triple g and his camp is unapologetic about it. Abel Sanchez, triple train, has been doing everything under the sun. It could antagonize. Can Nilo in the belief is is there's hope that Camilla will be so disgusted so furious that he'll come right at triple g trying to take them out. And the attitude is that plays right in the triple, jeez hands, and then triple g would take him out so we don't know what what will happen.
