"Starts. Picking up on the linebackers. Channing tindall freaking he's seeking missile. Why did why didn't he start at Georgia? Was it just, you know, the guys in front of him are just a little bit better, but yeah, depth, that program is incredibly deep. And they've had kids come through year after year. So he's played a lot. He's played in a lot of games, but he hasn't had a starter that I read something at one point that the players inside the program say like, hey, he's the guy you want the dark alley. And you see him hit like that. He brings he brings hell yeah. He's going to be, I think he's going to be a really, really good special teams player. But I don't know if I see him as like, he's not an immediate starter. You're not drafting him to be an immediate starter. Darien beavers from Cincinnati, you knocked it out of the park with your Kyle van noy. I thought the same thing. He's Kyle van noy. I mean, I think he's more of an inside backer. With outside versatility, I'm sure other people will see it the other way. Demarco Jackson app state looked like Landon Roberts to me with more upside. Now, I did want to get to guys that I was not as high on that people like to mention nicobi dean is on that list. Like, look, I think he'd be a, to me he's a Tampa two middle linebacker, colt, one of those schemes where, you know, you got four big guys up on the line of scrimmage and you just free. Now look smart as I get all the intangibles and I think he's gonna be a really good player in this league. I just don't think he's an ideal fit for the Patriots, especially the way they're constituted now. If they get Jordan Davis, then hell yeah, I want nicobi dean, playing behind him. But you gotta understand, this might have been the most talented college defense at Georgia. Maybe in college football history. You know, when we look back on it and what these guys do in the pros, and you're talking about these guys on the defensive line, you know, the Kobe dean's 5 11 is two 31. He needs to be kept clean. He was kept clean at Georgia. I just don't know what happens in the pros when he's not. When the Patriots say you need to sneak in there and take on a 330 pound guard. Like let's see how that goes. I did not like asamoa from Oklahoma really small Damon Clark from LSU. He's got the back issue, had the back surgery, didn't really like his film. I thought he was stiff, not overly special. And another guy who a lot of people love that's coming on strong Leo Chanel from Wisconsin really bulked up. He almost looks like a comic book character in terms of how big how strong he is, but and he can blitz like the Dickens, but I don't know if he can really play linebacker in the pros..

"I like that, and if you're Josh McDaniels, you know Joe judge, who has connections with the Mississippi state program, you probably have some decent information coming out of there. And yeah. You know, you don't get much more than a solid specialty player at this point. I don't think, right? If you're a Las Vegas. And so you're probably just banking on a positional matchup guy. And maybe you try to get the guy that takes Travis Kelce out of a game, you know? And that brings us to the last pick in our mock draft series. We were all the way down. This might be the lowest pick ever. We've made here. This is pick one O two for the dolphins. The dolphins just drafted so poorly the last couple of years that they were just kind of like, eh, I'm just gonna skip it now. We're gonna go get ourselves toron arms set in tyreek hill and we'll just take that weekend off. You know who we can't pick here, but again, I mean, this would just be for me. You know, there's a guy named smoke Monday from auburn. I would just want him just because it's smoke Monday, you know? That said, I don't think he's necessarily going to be available. So you'll get on this roster that pretty good in the secondary, I don't know, they're pretty good. It's pretty solid. I mean, it's pretty solid all around. I don't know if there's necessarily weakness. I would maybe take a look at the linebackers here. I like Landon Roberts is sort of rotational piece. I don't know if you want them on the field a ton, you know, other than that. Are you taking another crack at offensive line here? I mean, you're going to need some offensive line help. Do you find a situational outside zone player there maybe? Here's an interesting one. Just because I think I'm going to have something on them this week. I don't know if he lasts this long. But I talked to Rashad white out of Arizona state, the running back. Her med words with a Marcus Allen comp on Rashad white. Wow. So, and Marcus Allen, as you know, knows a little something about knows him some outside zone, a little bit. So I don't know. Pro style offense, you know, probably fits in a little bit better with what they want to do there. Like I think Mike mcdaniel is going to come out of this draft with if he can't custom fit his offensive line, he's going to at least need a custom fit running back. And I would, I would urge you to go check out some Rashad white highlights because they are.

"If he was able to move or generate some momentum first, whether it's coming out of the backfield from a full back alignment or even more like an HVAC alignment where he's coming across the formation. Just something that you're able to just get rolling a little bit before you get into the block. I wonder if that would be a better usage of his skill set and then also be able to run routes out of the backfield and get him some mismatches and get him into some space coming out. The best game John eastman had was actually a half. It was that first half against the jets, the first time they played New York. Our second time, excuse me, they want game at Gillette. He had like 50 yards in the half, right? He had to catch out of the backfield and fullback. They ran a corner route with him from the full back spot. They never ran the play again. Or at least they never hit it again, right? And that's what I wonder is maybe they could see using him. I've always looked at Johnny when dot a little bit Kyle goose check like, right? He's got that kind of skill set to him where he's not really the pure route runner. He's not really a peer inline guy, but he can kind of do a little bit of everything. That would probably in my mind get a little bit more out of him. So I would throw Johnny smith's name in that hybrid fullback or utility fullback position as well. But it does feel like they want to get a little bit more punch out of that spot. And they don't want that guy to be a complete negative or kind of a zero when they do throw the football and do go to the air at a 21 personnel. By the way, did find the list of traffic fullbacks. He had most of them are out of the top 500. The number one fullback actually hang on here, John chanal from Wisconsin. I'm guessing that's his brother. That's got to be Leo Chanel's brother, right? Hey, you draft Leo Chanel. A Landon Roberts a few years ago. That guy could definitely be a fullback, right? I mean, that's not his best role. Xander horvath from Purdue produced Michael Scott. I could be into that. Ben miles, some of these guys are all right, so there's 5 guys here. But yeah, they're all so they're there. We don't need to go over Japan. They're there, but yeah. All right, all right. So anything to add about Brandon Bolden. I know we talked about it a little bit with time Montgomery. Do you feel like this is a big impact loss? Obviously it's not a big impact loss, but Brandon Bolton was he deserves a minute on the show I feel like, right? I mean, a consummate patriot, two stints with New England, both were good, really filled in very well for James White last year wasn't James White, but he did a very, very good job in his stay, core special teams player. He's one of those guys who's talking to us about how he had so many text chains going back his entire time with the Patriots with former pats running backs, Dion Lewis, legarrette Blount, Steven Ridley, or some names he mentioned. I think a lot of people, Damian Harris and reminders Stevenson can properly attest to this as well. Brandon Bolden was a mentor. Was somebody that they all looked up to and learned a lot from even though he wasn't necessarily a Pro Bowl running back in his own right. He really held a lot of those guys that were very good..

"They'll have a plan. Let's move to the next piece here. Winovich, for Mac Wilson. That trade happened. What do you think? How long have we been talking about trading chase? I mean, it's, again, it's another late move by Bill Belichick. I mean, I don't know why this didn't happen a year ago and clear the decks let Josh uche play a little bit more. You Ronnie Perkins, like whatever. You know, it goes along with the lines of guys in the past that I've said like, all right, they need to move on from a Landon Roberts, drawn Harmon, and they end up doing the year after. I say it. But chase one of it, that pick complete waste. It was a complete waste of a third round pick. You know, it's either they misidentified, like what he could do. I mean, you know, they didn't know that he couldn't set the edge or did they not develop them well enough, which outside linebacker, which now uche is there and Ronnie Perkins, that's Steve Belichick's position. You know, what's the deal at edge? Why can't they develop any guys internally? Why do they have to go get Matthew judon? And Kyle van noy and guys, why can't they develop these relatively high draft picks? But look, one of which hasn't done anything here. I think he's a good player. I think he's good at what he does. Sub pass rusher, I would have liked to have seen them at some point. Say, hey, what is he good at? He's going to run around and go into the ball and fly into the ball. Why don't we stand them up and try them at inside linebacker? Maybe it takes there. Clay Matthews did sort of the same thing in Green Bay in that worked. I just did not like the lack of imagination with the chase winovich career. I thought that it was, I think that the Patriots did a poor job developing him or at least using him. I thought they kept him on the roster too long, and but you know, I will say this. Mack Wilson, who they got from Alabama, 5th round pick winner was a third round pick same draft 2019 Mack Wilson out of Alabama. I liked Mack Wilson out of Alabama. I think he has the potential to be a good player. I think he has the potential to be a starter here. Maybe a little bit of an upgrade on juwan Bentley a little bit faster than Bentley, same type of player. You know, but we'll have to see. There have been some, you know, he went, he went later in the draft at Alabama. He went against Nick Saban's advice, which was stay in school for another year. He pissed off some people there about that. There's always been questions about his attitude a little bit, which led to him being benched basically in Cleveland, his last year. I think there's a player there..

"Three down. Let's start with the ups. I thought that I thought that Brandon Bolton had a very strong game. I mean, he had the two touchdowns. He did it running. He did it passing. He contributes on special teams to I just think I just think he had a really a really strong game and the Patriots are going to need more of it. I was actually speaking of that, I was surprised that were Monterey Stevenson watching back the game. I was surprised he came back. I didn't realize how hard he got hit by a Landon Roberts, and he basically went straight down, but I don't get paid the big bucks. So I don't understand. I think folks, I think it's worthy of just mentioning here, is he just a really damn good football player because Greg, I'm sure you heard this from all the time. But what he's done this year offensively is something that we haven't seen in his time as a patriot, even when he was in Miami for a couple of cup of coffee. Like, did you ever envision a kind of year Brandon Bolden has put together offensively? No, but I've always, I've always liked Bolden, certainly early on in the season that looked like he kind of had leaden his legs and he did have the year off, so it took him a while to get going. But since then, he's been shown surprising burst. Right. You know, in these games, so yeah, I think he's done, I think he's done a really nice job. Number two, for me. After the game I had hunter Henry Brennan, but I, you know, and I do think he had a decent game. I did not like his run blocking in this game. I don't know if there's something going on with Johnny Smith, either injury or they just are reducing his role, but they use hunter Henry to block a lot more and that was not great for him. So I went with Jacoby Myers..

"I don't think so. Because he is he that much better than Landon Roberts, and they didn't pay a Landon Roberts. I think he's better than a Landon Roberts because he's bigger than a Landon Roberts, right? He fits the mold a little bit more than I would say a Landon Roberts did, 'cause Landon Roberts was a thunder, but he was an undersized thumper, which made him a little bit of an odd fit. I think Bentley had two 55 two 60 is pretty much exactly what they look for. So maybe that's the move, but behind him is it ray Quan McMillan coming back next year. He's coming off a torn ACL. Is it Cameron Macron? Is it I think they Joshua? I don't think high power is playing anywhere else. Yeah, I don't know that he has it in him to learn a new system, learn a new defense, all of that. I think maybe it's one of those things where he waits it. He waits it out a little bit. They kind of see what they're going to do. And he ends up coming back for one year on short money. And then they have him here kind of mentoring and McMillan if that's him. And if they draft somebody right, so I could go either way. I could go either way. I guess I'll say fiction, I think he's back for another year because I think his leadership is important. I will say the bigger question to me is Devin McCourty. And I apologize if he had that one next. No. Because like you said, Hightower has kind of taken a step back this year, and I think losing him is more about losing that leadership in that experience. Devin McCourty has been really good this year. And he's hinted at retirement. And so I just gave a couple possibilities behind Hightower. Maybe you don't feel great about any of them, but they have options. Who's taking Devin McCourty's role if he leaves? Are you taking Kyle dug out of the box is probably the best option? Yeah. Have another free safety. If Adrian Phillips is still here, then they could probably take dug her out because you also have Joshua Bledsoe who they seem to like a little bit. He hasn't been able to stay healthy and stay on the field. But in terms of what he's shown behind the scenes, a lot of guys have had some good praise for Josh. I'm gonna audible and talk about cannabis specifically, Massachusetts premier cannabis dispensaries insa. SA.

What they've done which avon digs There would be next at thirty five percents. My god how good is trayvon digs as the cowboys absolutely destroyed that draft two years ago. Who else around while on digs around to Pretty good so far are this year. Pretty good yeah right into darnold face. What about the falcons. Dsp against the jets falcons seven percent roster.

Great kickers jamie greg. Joseph twenty five percent rostered against detroit randy bullock three percent against jacksonville.

Gimme ten talk about kicker nine minutes. And i'll be ready. Anthony barr is finally going to play this week. That's my guess. I have no idea if he's still good. But once about a time editing bar with someone you wanted to roster in dp league vikings linebacker. So you're well. Because nick vigil gave you some pretty good production in anthony bars stead but bars you know bar in his heyday is a really good player. And i don't know a lot of idp sleeper.

"Yeah. At this point. And yeah, I mean, not just the play style, but you talk about that trajectory. Even heading into his fourth season, there was some questions about, you know, Landon Roberts truly have versatile he was. And if he could be anything more than downhill battering ram and Bentley was kind of in the same spot, especially after last year when he was asked to do a ton without daunt to Hightower, but, you know, for Landon Roberts, that fourth season, right that last year he was here. It just all clicked. I'd like to think was because he started playing fallback and it just made him a more complete player. But he just clicked in that fourth year and now here's to on Bentley and his fourth year and it seems like things are starting to click. Yeah. And I think that that's good news for the Patriots for many reasons, obviously just want every player to be good. But I still haven't seen I still haven't seen 19 Dante Hightower yet, right? I think he's still rusty or whatever the case may be. I'm not a 100% sure. Injury related, whatever. I'm not ready to say he's broken down. Not ready to say he's washed or anything dramatic like that. But we haven't seen the dominant Dante Hightower that we used to see are used to seeing dewan Bentley has made a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage in that with Hightower kind of figuring things out still, right? Stepped up and made a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage to help this defense out in this run defense out. Another player that really popped on tape to me what the Patriots defense it just does every week very quietly is Adrian Phillips just making some great plays. In his interception, just great awareness. I mean, look, it goes through the receiver's hands. It's not the greatest it throws by Zach Wilson. But that's not even his guy, right? And he's still able to get his eyes on the football and make a diving catch along the sideline to pick it off as great awareness. You also have that great play coming over the top of all the trash in the run game and the absolutely popped Michael Carter, I think it was just coming sideline to sideline. Just a really effective player and you can tell that he's one of those guys and it feels like he's been a patriot for 20 years. Actually, Belichick might have been asked this, but I feel like if you ask Belichick, what's the number one trait you want in a safety, he'd say instincts. And that's just what Adrian Phil..

"You just can't. That's why I brought up Bobby Wagner earlier to yeah. You just can't, you can't make this system work without really good talent in the back end and that back 7. And if you don't have it, there's a lot of open holes and a lot of opportunities for the Patriots in this game. Do you want that touchdown? I found it. Okay. One. Is this it? This is it. So this is the same coverage, right? Right. I forget. Who's this linebacker? It's 30, 32. It's not my boy Pete Warner. It's their other began with a B, I'll find it just keep talking. Yeah, he was also in the draft this year. So here's devonte Smith, number three, right? In the slot right here. Right, yeah, tough. Here's to watch a smith. Yeah, tough borland in a footrace with devonte Smith. It turned out exactly. So as you roll this play, you're going to see that tough borland is going to have to match Devante Smith vertical in this cover three scheme. And there's just no way that he's going to be able to win this foot race. So there you go. He's got a match vertical right there. Yeah. And devonta Smith just runs right by him. And Mac puts it on him for 50, 60 yard touchdown. So that's the matchup. That's the play that the Patriots are going to try to run. I'm sure. And like I said, whether Nelson Aguilar burns del Sean Phillips, just like devonte Smith did there with tough orland or they get that underneath check down to the running back, either way it's gonna be an easy read for Mac Jones and they're gonna be able to pick up some good yardage on it. Yeah, I think, you know, yeah. Yeah. I got nothing to add. You covered it. I'm just glad I could find that play in time that worked out. Yeah, that was good. That was good teamwork right there. All right, what about the Patriots backfield Alex? Because obviously Damien Harris is not going in the doghouse. They don't have a choice. But to play Damien Harris. But I want to talk about reminder Stevenson versus JJ Taylor and do we think that reminder Stevenson is going to get along leash here or are the Patriots going to put him in the doghouse for fumbling and failing to get run over by a Landon Roberts and all that kind of stuff that those little things that we talked about you and I not to take a victory lap, we said, reminders Stevenson might not be ready, right? Right. And here we are. So do we feel like reminders Stevenson gets a second stab at it this week? No, I think he's a healthy scratch. I think they go to JJ Taylor. And this is where. And.

"Whether you think you fumbled or not, you should end every play handing the ball to the ref right. One way or the other. So the ball came out. The ball is live, and it gave the opportunity to call it a fumble. Exactly. Was he down? Yeah, probably. You still gotta get it's not even so much he almost did. He doesn't make an effort to go for the ball. And then the blitz pick up thing for me is huge. That's as big. Because he's got to make that block. If he's gonna get playing time on offense, it's going to be in those in between situations where it's run or pass, because that's where rexburg had played last year. He's not there. Somebody needs to fill that role. In theory, Steven since the guy, if he can't pass block, it's not going to happen. So I think it's going to be a little bit until we see reminders even sitting again. He didn't look ready. He didn't look ready for the NFL in that game. Yeah, he had one carry, and then he had the one catch and he fumbles and he didn't play after that. I don't think. He got people. I think he played and then they got ran over by a Landon Robert. The only put him in because it was the play Damian Harris got his helmet knocked off. Right, right. The sting or whatever was, I think he cut his lip. So let's take him out for a play. It's not that Sony Michelle was some game changing running back that the Patriots are missing, but he was a reliable run. He's got you can trust. Right. The guy you can trust, you can put him on the field. You don't have to worry about it. We saw Brandon Bolden in that role in the game. And I'm not totally opposed to that, but Sony Michelle is a better running back than Brandon Bolden. Yeah, you can't, you know, people want to I see people wanting to rip Damian Harris for the fumble. It's tough because they asked him to do a ton. Yeah. That was my final point. I'm glad you brought that up because Harris ran the football at 23 times, which isn't an exuberant number, right? It's not like it's a huge number, but he played a decent amount in this game, especially by patriot running back standards. First came out. It was pretty hot out too, and it looked like towards the end of that game. He was a little big gas, and then he fumbles and that sort of in that situation at the end of the game there is is Damien Harris fresher and does that lead to him potentially not fumbling if somebody like Sony Michelle is still here. He's able to only carry the football 15 times instead of 23 times. They didn't have anybody to spell them. That's a great sound too. We played 53% of the snaps. Patriots. They've had players here and there do it, but in terms of a whole season, they haven't had a running back with an over 50% usage rate since legarrette blunt. They don't like doing that. And that's a big reason why they like keeping these guys fresh. You gotta be able to, you know, they need somebody who can spell Harris. I would think it's gonna be JJ Taylor here at least for the next couple of weeks. But you know, it would have been Sony Michelle if he was here..

I'm seeing what they're building. Like Corey Davis. I like Elijah more. I like that left side of the offensive line. And I like what I see out of this kid and I cannot wait Sunday in Carolina. Zach versus Sam. That'll be fun game. Trevor Lawrence has got to see Lawrence has a C rich Trevor Lawrence has a C down there in Florida. It's amazing how he got. He went from earning the job under there, 10 days later, as a captain, they didn't even have a C ready. That's kind of weird. How you know also Potentially he was earning the job this entire time while the team was maybe looking to boost Gardner Minshew resume to try and flip them to a place like Philadelphia. Perhaps that was the gambit the entire time. Just perhaps I'm just spitballing here. Does Mac Jones have a cat? We had his back. Oh, I don't know, like, Come on, let's you know what I think with the Patriots. It's like, just tune in Sunday to find out. Yeah, he's not. I'm not talking about guys. Let's get to be the captain. I don't have a selling, speaking of whom the Patriots were playing on Sunday. Tour does not have a seat. Yes, who doesn't have it when we just rattle off quickly the names of the Dolphins captains and and see if there is a glaring omission. Mack Hollins is a captain from Miami. Jess Davis is a captain and down in Miami. So is the Landon Roberts and Jason McCord E and some guy named Clayton with the last name I definitely can't pronounce. And will Smith No see for two guys. No see for two. Uh, I'd be mad if I were the starting quarterback, and it wasn't No. I would. There's that There is that they just saving that. He'll see for DeShaun Watson when he eventually arrives in a few weeks. Mm. Dude, there is something up with tour tango via lower and I can't put my finger on it. I don't know, man. I don't know. This is where it calls we. We've got to get an actual like player in here. And I know I just like, Hey, exactly. Uh, he's a captain Trevor As a captain, it means a lot. It means a lot. It means that it does say something that he doesn't have that scene on his chest. He's our guy. We're kicking the tires on the Shawn Watson, who's got more baggage. Than in a way store. More baggage than Los Angeles International. And we're going to kick the tires on him 10 days before the season. He's our guy and I'm gonna pound the table for our guy in the locker room, and he's not even a captain. Go figure that Didn't even make him a cat. Hey, Mac Jones, not a captain. Either I get it, but That Johnson Captain. Action is not a captain. Patriots captains David Andrews down to hot Tower. Devin McCord. The maps later, James White. I get that from Bill I get that. Yeah. Could you? Um, who's going to be the member of the New England media who asks Bill about why, Max, not a captain. Can we play that or who's a captain and who is not a captain? Yeah. Brockman. Ask, ask Brown. I've asked. By the way I don't like, you know, Go ahead, Brock when asked her at you. I mean, look at Del Tufo is like he's also directly. Yeah, direct. He's like a chatty Kubrick over there. Chris Brockman Rich Eisen show any reason to the which guys were named captain this year or any specific reason why Mac Jones isn't a captain. No, I don't. Don't really know much about that. No. You had nothing. No involvement in the naming of see Now you're asking yes or no questions. I'm just you know, you got to come and meet properly. Come. Come at me properly. Do you think Mac Jones did enough to earn a captain spot? I really have You know, we're just getting ready for Miami. The question. The question is, the question is Who chose the cat? Yes, That's what I would have said who chooses the captains on the Patriots? Who chose the captain? See? That's where you're patriots just a wide open question. See how he answers it, and then you follow it up. You follow it up..

"Make some plays air so i think those guys are gonna have a big say this. I also believe giovane holland. I mean when you look at what he did in college. That was a huge part of his game. He played a ton of snaps at nickel but the way he wasn't that run game whether was getting off blocks but it was just putting a hit on the running back. Don't on those holes. I mean driven hollandse. An factor news run game. But we can't sit here and overlook what. Brian floors thinks about landon. Robertson osama guava. Because i sat here in. Praise bernard mckenna. I said how much i love. that movie. there's tweets all round saying how he was going to be the key to this. Dolphins run defense. I got egg on my face. It won't be the last time. I'll probably gonna face assumes wrap up this podcast but i think it just goes to say how much this coaching staff believes. Roberts believes in. Santa guava in and i mean we can talk about that. One play against the chargers right. Jake where was it Where elena roberts went in and just bulldoze through what two three guys in to attack literally guy. Another dude tackled with those a rei. Yeah i'm pretty sure it was. It was malcolm brown. Yep you met. His met his former team. My bad yet face see told you. Wow that is that is incredible. That is the foresight josh. Let me let me get your picks for this weekend so he can win a couple of bucks yet. Josh one hundred percent. Right year. Where i think that the fact that i don't i'm going to stick with this. I don't think miami's run. Defense is going to be good but when you look back to last season how strongest was against Third down situations in general. I think there were six in the league. In terms of third down defense third and short. You're running the ball. I think this team just kind of knows how to operate the knows. They know where to kind of stick with their weaknesses and where they could really be aggressive. Especially passing bounce josh. I can't believe it. It is a breaking news. Jake i got breaking news. I don't you do it ready for this. You're ready because twitter is going to be a hell hole today your captains for the two thousand twenty one season. A landon roberts. Jessie davis clayton fa- genitalium. I butcher dynamic eggo my face again. Mac collins and jason mccourty. Do you hear a name. That's missing office. List jake and is going to cause twitter to go. Ballistic byles gaskin. Heidi not the best professional on this team. On the i was gonna say john was going to say Starting received came grant blue. Yeah no we gotta make our own. Because i i think you are completely missing the point. Here I think jason sanders needs to be a captain. Yeah yeah there. There's some major issues with you. You know what. I'm getting away with your are going to go five and twelve now. It's not it's dolphins are not. It's not gonna look without seeing to that captain. Everyone's going to say here. I don't even this has got its twitter. Is you know how big of a deal this is gonna be when it's not a big deal on it just probably speaks testaments but some of those other guys have done. I mean atlanta roberts. Jason mccourty right there. Those are two brian floors. Guys know through thick and thin so Dolphins twitter man. It's it's going to be a channel so think of it this way. There's no second year buyers and i don't think there are any thirty plays. Is it user all veterans yet. These are all going to be a senior the old head senior. It's the rule. I call them without a doubt without a doubt. You're telling me mccourty isn't damn house. This is going to be his fourth beer. Jason macoris thirty four dude. Oh i'm older than him. I turn thirty. Damn all right i would. I would be a team captain on the dolphins that sake. I bit so yeah. You're gonna go back to the. i think. Just say that everything you need to be a senior or higher. Show us the lie. That's just funny though that i'm older than pretty much. Everyone on the dolphins as said so as josh falls apart over here. I think it'd be nice idea of touch about what we're gonna discussing the preview again. I thought it'd be good to friday specially because let's get into it off. The jackson added shaheen cope list. I think she could play jackson. I think started the air. Just another thing. I think we should really get into his. What bill belichick. And the patriots gonna take away from the miami dolphins cough conquer tight ends and then also josh to think this will be a good idea to get in because a lot of people are talking about this. George godsey studs bill. That's the conversation berry rejects actually. Had a good story on this but did brian for no. This was going to be the plan for the miami dolphins offense coordinator all throughout last year. Because you think of the fact that it's miles gasket That things sound a lot like they did last year. It's just different. So i have to kind of start to think to myself that you know we say so. Often like a new x amount of coordinators or four offense coordinators in four years. Whatever it may be. Is it timely. Kind of re adjust how we look at pessimistic when we can see situation like this where maybe brian or is new chan gailey. You're gone after year. These are my two guys. We're gonna have offense that just works together and it's gonna be built in the same language where it doesn't have that first year offensive coordinators because that's kind of what i'm hearing when i read all these stories..

"The dolphins officially announce their fifty three man roster. We were dmz throughout the day. Let's go back curtain a little bit because we saw the cap space scenario. I don't i don't know this tweet was got around other people too but i think it was sport track who tweeted out that the dolphins needed a fine twenty six million dollars the under the cap on the day of roster cuts and it took me a little while to realize that that included players eighty two what fifty four and i was paying like. Are they going to cut someone major. How did we not know about this But just can walk me through. What's going through your head. Because i have to say. In that moment. I was spooked. About what kind of moves. The dolphins had to make being twenty six million the whole. Yeah maybe that's my fault. I mean i was just sitting there. You know we were doing it all weekend long. Just refreshing twitter waiting for something to happen and you know it's negative twenty six hundred dollars in cap space and i just felt like i had to send you because you know like you said on the surface it's just like what the hell but then when you start to peel away the layers like an onion you start to see. That is almost thirty people. Jake and you know some of these moves. Were a surprise. Some work but to me and i just want to jump right into it. Here jake bernard mckinney. I mean we talked about him for podcasts. After podcast we're talking about how poor the run defenses. I mean this one felt like a punch to the gut. What were your thoughts. When you solve an archer bikini was cut by the miami dolphins. The thing that i think we all love is that we have no idea what's happening. We have absolutely no control. And it's those punches those throws they really make this for exciting jazz because this was a situation we had no idea. This was coming in a tree. That involved Benadryl mckinney and shack. Loxton neither of those guys are on the texans or the miami dolphins anymore. I find that to be so crazy. And just after i got passed that initial like what on earth is happening here this year starting middle linebacker. I tried to kind of. You're at the why you're how the dolphins they got to this point and really to me. I think the only thing that popped out me and it wasn't santa guavas for that game. But it was more landed. Roberts actually practicing actually playing Because i remember we were doing podcasts. Like may i remember sharing the quotes of land. Robert saying you know. This is the worst i've ever been injured. I'll be back. But i'd be back. I'm taking it slowly. I mean there was. Nobody thinking landed. Roberts suffering a knee injury late in december would be back for the regular season. And i think mckinney was kind of that roberts prototype in a sense where i even kind of we should have seen this coming with very mellon because mckinney and mcmillan even same tickets thumper guy in the middle. That's clearly clearly what the miami dolphins don't plan on using especially for that cat price when you have landed roberts coming in. He looks out these so at first that shock atlantic is definitely there and saying. I certainly agree with the move. But i understand where brian floors were starting to come from. Especially when you factor in some like landon. Roberts jake and i was a big fan of mckinney. I liked the trae when it went down. But i wanna be off a tweet. From alfredo arteaga three yards precarity. Put shed pretty light on this bikini situation. He said. let me explain. Kennicutt mckinney looks powerful as a thumper rolling in as the mike for nineteen days. Alanna roberts comes back murders every back. We have for practice. They say yep. Same guy mckinney is now one-dimensional player. They don't want to so again. It goes back to what you said. But i mean to me i guess the thing that i take away from that is why did the dolphins make this trade. If they expected to bring a mckinnon have him. You know play pass coverage and do those things that it sounds like you know. They're shocked for some reason that he can't do. I mean again. I think when you trade it for mckinney was in here to change the dynamic that run defense and i. I think i'm upset that he is gone now. But i'm never going to sit here and pretend that. I know more than brian floors and chris greer on never do that. I think it kind of goes back to the fact that the dolphins are going to be playing safeties so often. Three of them i see. What jalen phillips will do. Let their preseason game i think they expect him to be a starter and maybe they're just going to kind of try to third baker in there when they're using two linebackers as that guy who can bursts of the middle. I believe he had nine sacks last season. So i do agree with you. Josh rethought this would help the run defense. But i think this is also a calculated risk by the dolphins in terms of what they see as their strengths and weaknesses. And if they're going to give up an extra you know four carries for five runs of pop in. It looks a little ugly but as a result. I mean you stop team on four straight third downs on third enforce the third and sixth. Because you have those defensive backs it kinda evens out without you knowing that you know. Full story yeah. Let's not pretend that you know ryan floors doesn't love to use his safety's brim him. Down the box. i mean. we haven't even really talked about brennan jones law this off season. I mean that perfect player that can drop down there and do those things. So great point there jake. And again i wish mckinney all the luck in the world he is kind of. He's twenty eight years old. So you know after the restructure after certain things maybe it. Isn't that big of a surprise. Josh another move. The dolphins made is putting left tackle coleman on injured reserve and i think we can both certainly agree that while he did look super prepared to be playing in. Nfl cabourg canes. He really has that body. That mold umass guy. I guess that's kind of why. I know a little bit more about him where i think this was away with adults can really wacky doubted. Make sure he doesn't get onto waivers. Don't worry about keeping on the practice squad. I would've those open coleman just yet. I know the injured reserve a little frustrating but this is a guy at the dolphins. Can you know really work with them for another year to i could see him. Actually being a decent tackle. I mean when you're talking about a seventh on die at at you can get him do klay productive snaps. I mean you gotta take every opportunity. You can get in that situation and i think with this coaching staff and this regime. I think one of the most exciting parts about is just how they can bring in some these raw talents and just get the most out of him. So i love see what they can do. With loren coleman another release you know kind of shocked me a little bit and you know sent shockwaves. Through dolphins twitter was when she came griffin. Got released them. No it sounds like the dolphins wanna bring him back to the practice squad jake but for player. He seems like he was out there. Doing everything look like. His hair was on fire at times. That special teams presents. You know once they got rid of some of these other guys i thought for sure shack griffin was gonna make the roster but that was a little bit surprising. Jake i'm not gonna lie. Yeah and that's another guy too. I think the dolphins are recommended him back on the spot where that depths can really come in handy on he did make a lot of plays in the preseason training camp to really see that hype start to grow. But it's important to keep in mind. I think there are a lot of second. Third stringers evolved their to. Of course you're going to see that and nfl so having someone griffin your back. Pocket is certainly. It'd be nice job. I got preseason game three. I thought karl tucker's dodge me the fullback from alabama he actually popped out on the page. That's kinda why like these preseason games you really don't the squint to see the guys who maybe can have a future nfl. I'm interested to see it. The dolphins keep him along. I as a full back. I mean i know. They're gonna christopher wilkins in that scenario. Maybe even season carter especially seeing the fact five tight ends but in terms of injuries of different scenarios jobs. See carl tucker being a guy. I think they keep on that practice Both new interior rock and do a little bit of blocking old coral took was a mighty man. You wash his face with a fine pandur here. That's the old. Dan tucker song that might way out yearly. But jake another movie. I guess it wasn't that big of a surprise with how you know the report. So michael jeter playing..

"I don't remember where you know, elandon Roberts kind of looked lost at times through his first three years in a similar way that Bentley looked lost through three years and then in that fourth year for Robert should all just kind of clicked and had a great year and Bentley has been compared to Rob. Since he was drafted, you know here we go. Now he said women Roberts right. What's up bigger Landon Robert. Garland in Robert Smith. You know, popular comparison. So okay and Landon Roberts and click fourth-year Bentley's had a very similar career path to this point. Now he's entering that fourth year so we're going to look at historical context. What does history tell us things? There's a good chance. Thanks click for John, Bentley this year, like a quick not to say he's been bad. But he's had his moments where, you know, he's been out of position or misplaced or whatever. That happened with Roberts in the fourth year, they were significantly fewer. So it looks like maybe Bentleys on that package here. Yeah, I think with a lot with Roberts and I spoke to him a lot about that when he was on the Patriots and he said that he sat down in the film room with Devin McCourty at the time with birth of course Brian Flores. I can't believe I forgot Brian putting on for a second but a minute it's been a minute with Brian Flores and he really harped on Thursday I've done it was mental, right?.

"He's not at that level anymore. He's getting beat up by someone like the both xavien howard out. Coleman's been that guy at cornerback while edens gone hype Coleman's played pretty well. Net sought role. Which is a nice little added bonus especially when you think about the fact that he's had to cover guys like jalen waddell albert wilson and still was able to make a play here there even though the receiving or two has been the story of this saha training camp so far it really seems. Yeah jacob one thing you really loved the see is i think she came griffin. You know the feel good story. He's out there. We heard he was pumping up the crowd. You know he's a fan favourite and he's out there making place setting the edge being an asset in the past game getting to the quarterback. I mean it seems like maybe this is going to be a little bit more than just a can't buy like you and i honestly originally thought maybe yeah definitely gotta take on that one. It seems every day you know It might even be to the point where the dolphin beat writers have has his name saved because he is making place often where it's hard to ignore it. This point josh. I mean when we get new preseason games. He's doing this bill even on the second team. I mean. that's gonna be good enough to make this dresser and that doesn't really mean anything negative about the depth in santa bobbins. Another guy of those linebackers has also been making a few played. But i mean. That's just the depth i mean. We saw what happened to the adult linebacker group. When they lost landon roberts just for the buffalo game and the last year. I'm not saying they wouldn't have completely blown up a dolphins either way but having that death is a nice reassuring thing and that's kind of the biggest takeaway on his training camp ears. Uncovering those guys who can fill those roles that you don't see at the top roster sounds good jake. Let's take a break and let's get into the top performing receivers.

"Anyway, the Panthers use that term. It's it's a defensive player. Usually a defensive, lineman doesn't have to be who is on the line of scrimmage standing up. Is between two down linemen so either between the two ends or attack when an end. So they couldn't use Joshua J like that. Actually, I may not receive any news like Hightower like in those stunts games where they put him over there over the center. Winovich, certainly Russia. I call it like an inline rusher, but I guess you could call it the Joker to I guess. That's. That's what it at least. What it was for the Panthers. I think this was a coach. I like it though. But I mean, you get that moving forward for whatever that's worth. So let's talk about those back up. I guess back up Mike's really, or back up inside. Linebackers Duan, Bentley, I think Joanne, Bentley, get a lot of flak from Patriots fans because he is slow-footed, right? He is a guy that's not great in space, he's not great in coverage. But when he's used in a very very particular way it's it's a similar conversation while we had all those years were the Landon Roberts to write like when they're used as missiles attacking the line of scrimmage on first down against the run and just playing in the trenches and play a game. In the in the mud that they can be effective in that role. The second that you expand that role is where they start to look like they're in over their heads a little bit. And I think that's exactly. I don't think last year was Juwan Bentley's fault right last year was a construction issue. The question just really is is, is there cuz every year there's a spot for this player for Bill Belichick, so I find that hard to believe that this year is going to be any different, but a spot for a player that's at most going to play probably 25% of the snaps on defense as a first down player. And I think with Bentley T just add, you know, a lot of people at the same critiques of the land and Roberts and they're similar players and then elayna Roberts came out. And he had a great year in his contract here and then played fans were sad to see him go when he went to Miami. So I think Bentley can turn it around. That being said, now that they're switching to a 3-4 and you just have more natural coverage at the second level. I certainly think if they want Bentley, there's a spot form, but at the same time, He's in a contract here. He's a guy who might have some trade value and, you know, a guy like terrorists. All right. I thought terrorists all had a great year last year. I think he's a guy who maybe deserves a little more run. Ray cock McMillan to a guy they said hey get to those guys. All right, you know, focus on. You asked what you asked me if he has a spot it's all it's all part of the answer, not fair. I know, you know what question what should I bring up Raekwon McMillan Paul and if they have a chance that we can kind of mess them off..

"I mean, look, I don't know where he is at this point in his career. I have not watched them that closely this year, you know, it is interesting that you've both the 49ers and the same only took one year mainly Sanders and and that was it. Yeah. I mean look, this is a guy that they signed to an offer sheet off. That was another miscue on Belichick's part that he didn't offer more and actually I want to talk about offer sheets and restricted free agents if we get to it later on in the Pod. But yeah, I think he does I mean hopefully has a little bit he's he's one veteran that I would let's just say this he would be an upgrade over some of the Deadwood veterans that they brought in here the last few years. I mean if you're talking if you're instead of bringing in Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas in these guys and you're bringing in Manny Sanders, that's an upgrade in at least, you know, there's better competition so long for Manny standards coming back on a cheap deal with the not coming back but coming to the Patriots they could they could use him he could play inside outside. He does not fit their profile page that that they're hopeful of to have to go more youth with the money that they use this offseason, but that's not going to hold true to everybody. Yeah. I mean, I think you could do a lot worse. Then Emmanuel Sanders. I've Loved this guy for a while. I thought it was going to be a bigger piece in New Orleans. He still did a decent job when you look at the numbers. He's well into his thirties, but I think he's somebody that you're going to sign short-term and he's going to give you something, you know, and I feel like he's Dependable. He might not be the number one that everybody is seeking he certainly is not that but he is somebody that brings you that veteran presence. He is somebody that can catch the freaking football and make some plays so I don't mind the idea of Emmanuel Sanders, especially if you strike out elsewhere, which reminds me in just a couple of minutes Greg and I were going to get to our free-agent wish list some guys. We think that reasonably the Patriots can sign. We're not going to sit there and just build this, you know, super team and throw crap against the wall some reasonable option for the Pats and what we like wage, but before we get to the fridge of wish lists Greg for you and I one last Quick hit news item that I wanted to take a look at the Patriots. They get to comp picks a lot of people pretty much all of us thoughts. Going to get three seems like it's a weird thing with the system that you know, they did not get credit, you know for certain things. They got hit on the injury for Landon Roberts..
