"Such confidence. He could take it. Tell me anything, and I just feel like yep. I mean, nobody says it pet strongly unless it's true. Why, like Keyshawn and I'm afraid like J willing Zubin to you Throw the three together. What a wonderful sandwich. It's Game day on ESPN Radio Matt Jones, My remit cabin Joe 40, Bob. I'm very excited. I'm is excited about these two conversation shit games. Is any in a long time, because I think they're both so competitive, and they both kind of could go in any direction. So I actually think that that makes the gambling on them even more intriguing because there's a lot of different ways it could go. So Joe Foreign bodies are gambling expert. He's out there in Vegas. Doing Vegas things and he has come up with his Joe's jackpot. He's going to give us three or four sort of Crop beds or secondary bets that he believes are worth going into. And when he tells you what he's gonna do the Myron I will tell him whether or not he's wrong. So, Joe, what is the very first one? For props and a reminder that one hour from now mad verses, Myron, they'll be picking the games will talk. The spreads will talk to totals and all that good stuff, But for now, we're gonna isolate some props. So let's start prop number one. We're gonna go to the NFC championship game. Leonard for net running back Tampa Bay Buccaneers over 43 a half rushing yards 19 carries for 93 yards against Washington. 17 carries for 63 yards against New Orleans. This is a guy who's running like he's fresh, who's running like he didn't carry the ball 250 times during the regular season because he didn't he is the X factor for this team and Green Bay ranks tied for 21st in opponent yards per carry. Tampa Bay is gonna win this game. They have to establish the run, and if they established the run, they can keep Rogers on the sideline for nets going to be the guy because Ronald Jones is still dinged up Leonard Fournette over 43 a half rushing yards. Byron, you agree. Man. Yeah, I think I would pick the over. Because I'll I expect them to play. But I still.

"leonard. fournette" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Leonard Fournette was the number one high school running back in high school, and then he was a number one running back in college, and then suddenly I'm supposed to believe in the NFL he's just no good despite playing for a franchise that has sub optimal quarterback. Line ownership. Issues across the board, right? Like everything we're talking about them eventually becoming a team in. London. Leonard Fournette now has Tom Brady as teammate, and this is for the record. All Tom Brady wanted can we just be a little aggressive New England? Can you can we not always go after defensive guys? Can we go after offensive guys does everybody have to be a developmental player? Can you get me talent in their prime occasionally and they would not so Leonard Fournette. High School running back the number one college running back goes to Jacksonville and all of a sudden it's like. Well, maybe it's the surroundings we do this we forget it. So yesterday's talking about being Tampa, and he slips in a shot and it's a matter of fact he's not snarky. He's not over the top. He's just talking and stating facts and he got some heat for it. Here we go I don't really about expectations in the football football I am game for twenty, five years and. For the first time, a life I really have quarterback. So that's album for me and not a lot of pressure comes comes. It's GonNa come on me in August. With me and him and a Lotta guys on offense. But as far as like game playing a chain bangs is is great for me. You know I'm happy to be back. There were one of the greatest degrees played this game and I get my problem to. What about that was inaccurate His last. Seven quarterbacks college in the pro. Foles Minzhu borders Cody Kessler Danny Settling Brandon Harris and Anthony. Jennings. S- translation the box is stacked in everybody's staring at Leonard Fournette despite that. He's one of three players in the NFL that had a thousand yards rushing and five hundred yards receiving last year maybe heard of the other to Christian McCaffrey delvin Cook? And now everybody's convinced he can't play. Are we forgetting where he's played at. I mean don't get me wrong. McCaffrey has been more spectacular, but McCaffrey's got better teammates. For Net caught seventy six balls last year. Look at quarterbacks look at the O line head over a thousand yards rushing. This is a tanking operation. In fact, per game the most scrimmage yards per game in the last three years in the NFL. Here's the guys. That are better than him Zeke Saquon McCaffrey girly Levian Bell Delvin Cook. All. With better teammates. We forget this. We've just the media has whole Humvees. Leonard Fournette is really good and for the last six years college and pro has faced stacked boxes. Where people disregard everybody except him? Average to below average offensive line's. A team that is now last year was trading their best players away during the season. This is not a whole hum Fang like the Dude Compla- and I think this is what Brady Oh was wanted. Can we just be occasionally aggressive in New England and go for this is a go for it move and I'm surprised how it's being Ho hummed by the media joy.

"Bel- above the under swift above JK Dobbins I think that you'll it depends on man there's a win newsbreaks this late in drafts. If you still have a draft to go, I, could see some taking the third round I could see someone taking him in the fourth time to me. That's pretty crazy like I said fifth or six I, think I'm more okay with it but I'd. Rather Find Andrea Swift or Jacob Dobbins or cream hind in the sixth or seventh I would prefer that and yeah, you know it's interesting online for not agree with everything you said, I, want to make one thing clear because people are gonNA. Say Evan said that learn for nets not good Adam Adam said learn for net sucks to be clear in twenty nineteen. We were high way higher than market on Leonard Fournette. Any season long draft we were talking we had Leonard For island for. Draft macropod them all cleared around. It was like automatic. It's the more about this situation in. So yet we VOL's about Leonard Fournette not being good at the running back position what correlates. To fantasy points to most is going to be opportunity explosive. Learn is going to have that I still have my skeptics about his actual. Sounds a little bit higher that he'll ice Ronald, Jones but wide wide wide range of. Their on Leonard for net are. With Alvin Kamara situation in this situation was kind of you know this is people I think kind of making a bigger deal have something dentists four year fifty, million dollar deal on the table from Alvin Kamara from the saints to Alba Kamerhe I. Think That's fair for Alvin. Kamara. Given the running back a market of course, abattoirs agents. It's their job to try to get more. You know. So the saints they look, you know you couldn't get a better deal even if we trade you see, we can prove it. So then it turns into a medium mess they were just trying to prove that they couldn't get more. They say all trade outcome for first round pick no one's GONNA trade. For running back a first round big and then pay him fourteen million dollars years just not happening. So Alvin Kamara one was certainly on the scenes come week one he's just so valuable to drew brees in that Kinda short area option route kind of gain. I'm this team Dave frigging tastes Tastes Hill twenty million over two years. They're like they're not gonNA give up on out Chimera when this is drew brees. Swansong. So I'm very confident out on Chimera will be on the field come week. One I think you are to, as you left him as a number four overall pick in happy biard in non qbr, I would still consider Derrick Henry over album Chimera but I'm not worried about AVOCA contract situation. We also have this epidurals news anyways lots of swallow on album. Chimera. You did not move tell the people why? Yeah I mean the the the news the girl is really what sent sent some people into a tailspin. I mean I've never moved someone in my fantasy rankings over having an epidural. There are two types of epidemic I. Mean obviously I put like a research. At this point, there are two types of epidurals. One is like would be a significant turn concern but sounds like the one that Alvin Kamara had was one that's like not a big deal at all. It was just to treat some inflammation also news of that emanated during this twenty four hour period where it sounded like things got real ugly between the saints actually certainly got real ugly between the Saints and Alvin Kamara and there there. A lot of posturing through the media you know all of a sudden there's a report. Oh, the saints are willing to Trade Alvin Kamara, O-. Out Chimera had an epidurals on his back. And all this kind of emanated during this this swift like twenty, four hour period and it just it. It was the side sort of you know like bantering through the media and now you know then Alva- Kamara. Comes back to practice everything. Kind of cools down the saints have a pretty good offer on the table to him. I I think that everything's going to be fine. Maybe I'm being naive here but I think that everything's GonNa be okay. And as you said, just just zooming out and taking a an irrational pragmatic. Vision on what is going on here I. Think you're absolutely right that. I mean, the saints aren't GonNa. Do this in in in drew brees. What is probably drew brees final NFL season. For sure. Okay. This one flew under the radar and I don't think that it should. But the chiefs are talking up their a Williams in a big way and there's been ESPN's Adam Tiger left Yanji Washington off his final roster Taylor who covers the chiefs for the athletic did I keep Adriana washing on the final roster but said there Williams is clearly the back and he's GonNa play a time and so I think people are discounting how much they are Williams GonNa play Especially early, no, I saw some people say man, she got this massive workload in week one like I. Think there are Williams might play thirty, five, forty percent of the running back touches snaps in week one against the Texans there I think they like their Williams.

"And, by the way, I'm about ninety five percent done that the right up for chiefs Texans and that's that's a fun game to write up. That's going to be an awesome awesome way to open the season last year, those teams played two games the first place like a fifty four point total and the second one played Eighty two point total So man, I'm ready my body is ready. As long as we'll as pop a hamstring during that game I'll. Then I'll consider it a win Okay. Big News comes out is was late on Wednesday night. I was thinking well, man I learned. Cheese, but the only other place where I was like mainland for that can still be a win out the he'll be a win in the third I'm a maybe can be a win for people later on not and salvage something will be the bucks. Those are really the only two spots where I thought that it could have learned for that signs with the bucks. Let me say this I, Evan. I believe nothing that Bruce Arians says, it's like a relevant and I really do think it's skill soft skill that we have from doing this for so long it's super valuable to. Know which coaches shoot straight in the media about player usage which ones do not Bruce Arians does not. So when he says roggio still our Guy I'm still gonNA Roggio, it's his job to lose and all that. I. I don't believe at all second. Let's talk about rolls. Here's what I'm thinking Ronald starts this season as the one a, but lenny pretty quickly moves ahead of him in cells in kind of a sixty, forty split maybe sixty, five, thirty, five split over Jones on early downs. I'm not sure they'll use a designated goal line back, but we'll see on that. Pass Down I. Think it'll be one of Dr Guanajuato play or the Shawn. McCoy. Whichever one makes the team in Lenny will mix in behind them. Maybe I. Mean I'm not sure exactly Lenny's no great pass protector either. So look I, think this forget situation comes down to do you think he comes in and just Isis Ronald? Jones before September's over completely i. think that's in the range of outcomes but probably not the likeliest outcome. So for me I'd be passing on Leonard Fournette around four and around five for sure and I personally probably pass in round six as well. But. I understand is a wide range outcomes here week push push in article live on the site. 'cause there was disagreement between all of us and you got all of our opinions on their Evan made his opinion known in his top one fifty tell the people what you think about Leonard Fournette to the bucks the fallout heaven on my general stance on this backfield from day one has always been Tom Brady is going to make the term to the determination as to who is in the backfield alongside him. Not The people that win arguments on twitter not the people that win you know. The takes don't matter here. Tom? Brady. Is going to dictate is playing alongside him in the backfield and And you know Ronald Jones has never really seemed like the kind of back that Tom, Brady would just be like Oh. Yeah. I want him in the Backfield with me at all times. With so I'll just bring this up. So Mike Clay is one of the best prognosticators statistically in all of you know the the fantasy universe and he came out with his projections today and these remain projections. He's not really even taking a hard stance on anybody take somewhat of a stance but these are meet this mean median stuff and she had a Leonard Fournette as RB thirty two. So that would be like a a seventh eighth round pick. where I slided him in and we we had him in rb twenty, two, RB, twenty, four ranges kind of bouncing around there pretty much all off season. Some people were up on him in like rb thirteen some people even Adam unlike the top ten but we were rb twenty, two through rb twenty four and we move when he got cut, we moved him to rb thirty two and then I moved him to rb twenty three last night after the buccaneer signed him. As you mentioned, the KINNEAR's are one of the best landing spots I think he's got big time touchdown upside Ronald Jones I mean. Wasn't a fan of coming out of college. He really hasn't given me any reason to change that stance and he struggles in the areas of the game that really matter most for running back, which is receiving and pass protection to be able to play in the passing game Leonard Fournette is although he's not perfect neither of those areas I think he's definitely better than Ronald Jones in those areas and I think that that will eventually bubble to the top. The buccaneers. So one of the reasons that we didn't like Leonard it in. Jacksonville's because they projected for a time of a negative game script and they had added Chris Thompson pull away a lot of the targets and it just it wasn't a good situation for him. Now, he goes to a team that I think is GonNa that might field a top five defense maybe top three defense I mean they were the buccaneers defense with just got better progressively in the first year under Todd Bowles. Last year they've got a young really promising secondary. They've got two of the most athletic linebackers in the League and Devon Smith and David they are loaded up front with size on the Interior in speed. On the outs in the outside pass rushing guys that have proven that they can rack up a ton of Saxe, Pierre, Paul, and A shocker in particular. So I think this defense is going to be one of the best in the league and that is going to lead to more positive and they're not going to be turning the ball over this season. So they're gonNA have a lot of a favourable fueled position situations and that is good for running back and I just I don't view Ronald Jones, as a really big hurdle I do think that he's GonNa we're not be able to use Leonard Fournette in week one signed a great matchup for Ronald Jones either in week one against the saints and then you have to worry about all of them, how many passes are they going to catch because? Drew Rosenhaus sent out a mass text today erupts Leshan McCoy, and he's like you know we have word from the buccaneers that they're not going to be putting the Shawn McCoy that he's going to be playing in the passing game. Dario, gain by do you think we'll make the team at least for his special teams value also Has Experience as a third down slash passing game back. So it's going to come down two touchdowns. I think for Leonard Fournette but he is in a way better situation to score touchdowns this year in earn Tampa Bay than he was in. Jacksonville Yeah to get down to it here, you have learned for net above remastered above cream Heintz above Levian..
"leonard. fournette" Discussed on First Things First
"I'm like. It's like for. In your body and then it's like, Oh, no jenness backward talk about Marnie spending a bloomingdale's okay. Great. All right now to this, this chip. Listen Brandon I don't know where you fall on this. I think Leonard Fournette is a name more they need is of forget elite even very good nfl running back. He was great at Lsu since then he's been replacement level and to misquote my guy from reading rainbow, you don't have to take my word for it. Thirty one teams in the lease had the opportunity to guarantee. Leonard for net would be on their team by claiming off waivers and they're like four million bucks. Not Worth it the paint or the Patriots the bucks get him for two million dollars I know everyone remembers him and Lsu and everyone that first year was with. Jackson. When they make the AFC championship game, you think big things are coming but to me this is. A I don't think he's better than Ronald Jones I don't think he is a big difference maker. So whether or not Brady succeeds or fails this year I believe Brandon is GonNa have very little to do with Lynyrd for net and his place on this team's offense. I mean. With winner without Leonard. The expectation for Tom Brady is high. He could went to the Jacksonville Jaguars went to the Cleveland browns. He could've went to Washington, and the standard is always going to be the standards to win the Super Bowl. This helps them out a lot. He's aging quarterback. So to have a guy that could potentially go for fifteen hundred yards says a lot. It's very meaningful but Leonard Fournette some there's something else to this right like a lot of times when I look at these players and I, look at the struggles they have will organizations make me think about fit and from the beginning, it seemed like that relationship was doomed. You, look at all the issues, the head and the back and forth with Tom. I think this could be the perfect locker room for him because there's discipline, there's respect which is extremely important but not everybody gets along with Tom and when you take a guy like winner I, think that was more of a volatile relationship than it was a coach player. That type of coach to respecting management type relate relationship I. Don't think he respected him and for that reason I think this is a better fit for him because he has bruce he has tom in. Here's guys in that locker room that I think he'll respect a little bit more. Yeah, I mean on the field of bucks need them. The bucks were the worst yards per carry three point seven yards per carry. Now they got Sean McCoy. Now, they got Leonard Fournette. He granted he had three touchdowns last year we still ran for eleven, hundred yards and the other thing nick. You can look at look the guy can catch the ball. Now the previous two years he had fifty eight receptions last. Year went up to seventy, six receptions five, twenty two. So if I'm Tom Brady wake up I, have a twenty ounce of electrolyte water and I'm happy that I got another weapon to throw to in the office electrolytes. So so here's so that's a very interesting thing that another guy to throw to an guy you mentioned they sign Lewis Shawn Mccoy I wonder if he now gets cut, they already have Ronald Jones. Lot of mouths to feed on this offense Brandon and here's one of the to me a potentially big issue. A handful of those the have never actually been fed and by that I mean there still own rookie contracts. So we know Mike Evans has been paid they bring in Gronk. We know obviously he's made a ton of money in this league Chris Godwin coming off the best season of his career on a second. Third. Round Rookie Contract Ronald Jones on a rookie contract tied into OJ Howard on his rookie contract I. Just wonder in the Locker Room even if the team is succeeding more than it did last year those guys who need numbers in order to secure their financial future in this league. I mean, how does it land with Ronald Jones? It's like, Oh, we sign the show McCoy we drafted running back in the third round. We now sign Leonard Fournette and by the way he's putting by Jesus in my Jersey twenty-seven is actually already taken. Joking. Sees.

"Ran for a school record. I'll tell you what's what's cool though ran. Something we haven't experienced in Tampa Bay in a very long time. People are coming here. They're picking up the phone saying I, want to come play there or at least we're assuming that they're picking up the phone or like Tom. Brady. Wanted to come down here and play. Wrong. Wanted to come down here and play with Tom. Brady Leshan Way was not a big sell like they got him in at League, minimum. He's ring chastened. Leonard Fournette it's coming in for one point, two four, which is chicken scratch for her reported. I just WanNa say reportedly orderly. Gosh who else's come in Dhammika sue came back to be here.

I mean, how do you think the Patriots got all those guys like you know? I long got him for a one year deal. Play defensive entering chase. Look along. You know even their offensive line, not the receivers, not the running backs but along like the the linebackers and defensive line, the offensive line people have been signing with the Patriots at a discount to ring chase for for years at least a decade. Let's see here we have a comments. I don't know how accurate the but they're saying over the chatroom Joey over on Youtube is saying fornet signed for a two million dollar base with a Max of three point five with incentives. That's why said allege it always changes a lot it. It does the those when they start reporting numbers, they tend to change until you actually see it on track right? Remember. Quantum Alexander's contract. Atlantic. Two years ago it was like you know coming off a busted ACO something like Oh, my God. He got thirty eight million dollar fifty, two, million dollars whoa and then like four days later it's like twelve million dollars guaranteed. Okay. Right, but it wasn't I mean the full value of the contract was like fifty, six, million dollars right which he not going to see because I don't even know he's on the team anymore. Yeah. So all right we'll read. It for us here for tonight's. Talking about Leonard Fournette, is there anything else you WanNa you WanNa dive in talk about here before we close out Well. I'm happy that the bucks are at least talking to David about an extension. If that's true yeah. Well I think it is true. So I'm going to say I hope it's true. Levante David needs to retire a buccaneer. And Not in the same way that Gerald McCoy plans to retire buccaneer comeback and signed a one day contract and then retire any like. Will Not quit quit tweeting about himself. Hey I, know I'm not playing this year but. Message I did I'm sorry listeners out there I'm sorry I'm not playing this year but. God. Hires a bucket here.

So rendezvous a good one. All. Gruber. Somebody like James Wilder. Right. To Ring of honor we gotta make it happen. He's I'm on that train right on David's like reaching leeward selman type like he's he's vaunted David is starting to. You know make the Rushmore Mount Rushmore buccaneers I don't disagree. See. Leroy. I'll give I don't like him. I want up there, but he deserves to be Brooks. I think Avantis in front of Rhonda and and Lynch, yeah, and who else is GonNa go up there. Yeah. I also has it has A. Fancy Erin argument right I I. Think it's an argument. I don't know that all starts the guy that belongs there but you're Lavar.

"Down. There were GONNA wind up again and run at the same spot and just give four yards. Just, watch you. Be defeated. Yeah All right well here actually this is a great. This is a great thing talking about how are you going to pay for everybody whereas all this coming and one person over on Youtube suggests this. Might possibly, what do you think ran as a way to free up some monies free up some cap space? We could be saying by cameron breaks. No No. What's going to happen and Here's where the money's coming from. It's just an Evans's like two point one, million dollars. Okay. Yeah. I mean there i. mean that's it. There it is. You know so like you know like a team like. We put it this way if you're trying to buy a soda. At a store. And you're like a nickel short. You're gonNA find that nickel like you know is it going to be under the floorboard is going to be an ashtray? Is it going to be stuck on the rail of the seat? You're going to borrow from the guy behind the cash register maybe a stranger walking in and out. That's at one point two, five, million dollars is to a football team. It's a nickel like they'll find it. You know like though you know they'll check the Gumbo machine like the. They beg borrow and steal little increments are everywhere and build added up or just take a move like we'll Justin Evans. You know it's like sorry the end the the other way they can do that because of the way, the buccaneers structure these contracts as they don't front-load these contract or they do front-load the contracts and they get rid of guaranteed money really quick. What they do is like, Mike Yeah. On the books big contract right now, Alamar pets on the books for big contract right now, those are two guys that come to mind immediately that they can turn on say, Hey, we'll cut you a check right now turn it into a signing bonus, which then frees up money and those guys aren't going anywhere. We're GONNA keep as on the roster for awhile so they'll spread that out over the next couple of years. Effectively, what they're doing is they're borrowing from future years caps to to come back and pay for this now. That's the other way we have seen them do that before. In the past yes. So So with that ran. I don't know if that might be it I. I don't know Is there anything else to talk about here with Roggio final call anybody wants to call in eight, six, four, seven to nine bucks that's eight, six, four, seven to nine, eight, seven. Well do you WanNa talk about how you feel about not being able to go to football games? We could talk about that How'd you find out? How did I find out about not being able to go the games the first to? My ticket rep called me this morning and so L. Getting Ready to come out and he made it sound like it's coming out in a couple of days. But it came out like two hours later and he was like we're still plan on trying to have people in the in the stands. It's just not happening the first two games and. So then the email came out. So they're not having in two games they're going to reassess and and figure it out the Green Bay game, which would be the first one they'd allow people to go to is the game I like if I could only go to one game this whole season and it was the one I was GonNa do whatever I could to get to get really yeah because I you that's a big green bay fan who's GonNa, come down and and And that's that's why honestly grow you guys know my story you guys have been listening around for a long time. You know my story I grew up in a place that didn't have a home football team we were in Green Bay's market. So I kind of grew up watching them I would not call myself a packers fan, but I did at least peripherally follow them somewhat so not that I want to see them win but. You. Know. It's the packer Aaron Rodgers. I. Got You. I wouldn't I mean packer I was just wondering why it wasn't the chiefs game and it's because you have a really good friend you WANNA. Spend some time with him. Go to the packers game and crush soul while you're looking in the I I get it one hundred percent. Here's a good question Brown's my Brown's ready Joe. So yeah, here's a good question from Nathan Brent. Being from Jacksonville have you ever heard anything negative there you go. coming out from four net and any character concerned should be worried about what have yet like you're in Jacksonville. Hearing Jacksonville Jaguars stuff is like you can't get away from it now that you seek it out but I'm sure you hear about it. So yeah. What is what is the feeling of of you know? Leonard Fournette from jags fans. Yeah. I. Always say this I just WANNA I wanNA caveat this whole thing I'm a bucks fan I follow the buccaneers and I don't really care too much about other teams that being said I live. In Jacksonville and I I keep tabs on what's happening with the bucket with with the team up here. So I'm not in super deep but I do keep tabs and the only thing that I've ever heard I think is pretty much what other people have maybe heard which there's been some locker room issues but the Jaguars ever since Tom Coughlin came in quite honestly I everybody kept arguing about a VP of football operations vp of football operations. Jacksonville does Tom Coughlin might have been the worst thing that's happened. Tom Coughlin set Jacksonville back. At least a decade. By by what they did here and almost every pick the Tom Coughlin made they wound up alienating these guys from the team. You look back at Jacksonville's last.

"But you know any three back will be the perfect running back for any quarterback. Yeah. This question comes into us here just just for the Record Renzo. You say who starts now I think I think Leonard Fournette starting maybe not week one, but I think the plan is to get it to him to start. Do you still say it's row Joe The plan is to start Rojo I. think it's Rojas Job to lose I think if Roggio comes out and performs the way the team has been telling us I, e coaches players. That fornet will never have the starting job right. The End. There you go. There you go. Hey, let's I. Do WanNa talk about what this means at least a little bit for the defense because the bucks are going to have to move stuff around right? They're they're not going to go into the season with thirteen thousand dollars cap space, right? That's not going to happen. So they're gonNA move some stuff around. There are some other stuff on the on the defensive side of the ball more depth signings people talking about extending Levante David And by that which goodyear, which is yeah. And you know what do we do with a cornerback because our cornerback situation? Look we get one injury at cornerback and? Things things start looking real sketchy. Have extensively talked about and we talk about it with John Leonard on the upcoming podcast, which should be coming out hopefully tonight. I don't know this kind of is taking place of all my editing time but. We talk about extensively are outside linebacker depth, the the edge depth. Maybe, not so much with interior defensive line anymore but. I know the bucks can move around and sign really who they want to sign. They just gotta move stuff around but. It kind of. Locks down anybody else that we could potentially sign or at least any big name that we could sign to come in and help out any place we feel like, oh, it's finally over. Nine days or ten days eleven days out. Findings no more. Right. Guys are done. I mean this but you know unless until the half to you know that's just the way and that's just the way it works. Especially, you know these teams that. Are Are by vying for a championship like if you've got a young day, this is a bucks three years ago in one of their starters go down, they're not going to go and spend like. Eleven million dollars on a corner bring them in because he's they're missing piece. This year that you know they could move though I'm not gonNA say they're going to spend eleven million dollars, but they can go and get some like a veteran, a name someone like a fornet someone like a kyle love someone like a shipley that they can bring in to bolster. So the drop off. As far you know it's not a scary like all like this guy. Do. You have zero. Okay who you plan but Japanese four net and Shipley and who's the other guy cow. Is Those two guys are deputies they're not coming in to take. Her. I don't know about that I. I don't know but I'm telling Ya I'm telling you for it's going to get the ball shipley hopefully shipley never sees the field and kyle is probably going to see the field. Some people don't think make the team right I mean look at. Karl love will be in the rotate. You'll see just because he's part of the rotation. Yeah, and what's The Ace in the hole for Kyle, of is he can play all three inside positions. Good Yeah Yeah so that that makes them very important piece even. Even though he's not going to get him before Nacho but it makes him more important overall than Nacho but you know and it's not nachos fault. The team said, Hey, in thirty pounds and we wanted to play guard next year and he did it and that's what he's doing. But you know. So you know but I think Kyle of comes in before Khalil Davis. Okay Yeah. No Yup. Davis. Just for those who might not be familiar is our fifth round draft pick this year take seven. Six now, clay clay was our seventh. So He's our sixth. Well. Worse Chappie then do we have to six rounders? I. was under Johnson. It doesn't matter it's not it doesn't matter. Not, at this point, it's not the seventh and it wasn't the fourth. Right. Here's a good football question for your rent. You're. GonNa run more twenty one or twenty two personnel this year. I think it depends on the team they're playing in the score. Right. I I. Really. Do you know I don't think they're going to run any twenty two. that's too tight ends to backs, right? Right right yeah. So I, I don't think you know goal line at the goal line stuff. Tired. Really know if they're going to really run any twenty two. You know if you're earlier Nathan I talked about how the bucks just come out with three tight ends and into a power I with Roggio, and for net the first series against the saints and you know. If. They bring a linebacker and throw it if they keep their corner on the field, run it and just see how it goes. Yep. I would just end this go for it like this run it and then go for it on fourth down no matter what happens like. Third. Or fourth in two new problem are still going to run it. Are you going to line up with three tight ends in his? Blow it up right tackle. We're.

"So. John what would be what would be a break? John John John. You said to make it or break year what how many wins? What's the least amount of wins the bucks can get or get the most amount of wins the bucks can get for you to sink that it's to break it year like. Yeah I think not like it. Super Bowl of buffering thing I mean like. We make an Jason Maker always proven Heathrow better world heat under his ass like. You know drawing upon all of power that make the playoffs again i. Like. Jay writes fall you'll get hit and everything. But I mean like you know you hear proven to fall you're willing to sign players help us win you know. Go prove it. So that's how I feel like a make or break thinks like he's going oil. Sitting in cars powered. By Our playoff. and. It so making a little bit hesitant just a little bit like I. Mean We all have a lot to be excited for especially all those is Tampa Bay fans all the way around. So. Try and our hope. Is. Always GonNa be bugged and that's how it's always been. I think it. something. Different. It's nice to see the names want to come here, and it's nice to see that there's a front office that you know has the. Creativity guts will keep it PG and then the guts to go out and make things happen because let's face it G- rock is a luxury player. Like Leonard Fournette as a luxury player like it it is not needed. You know a Brennan has had a really good conversation with John Legend from Peter reports going to be united pods coming out very soon and John's in the same. Of. Thinking that I am that you know it's like that outside linebacker spot is thin, and then if you look at the cornerback spot know it the the big three call the big three go down like you know they're potentially be a problem like you might be playing a safety as you're starting corner nickel. you know if one of those guys go down so but you know I, what I really want this a question I want somebody to ask I wanted to nasty as as this wasn't for Kobe would they sign Leonard Fournette. Why why Aren? Why? Because I want? To know because I want to know if the mentality round, the organization has really changed as in hey this guy's upgrade at our third running back spot maybe our second running back spot maybe our first that's you know whoever but desolate it's it's a it's a it's an upgrade from Dr a or Von Period End Story. They had the money they went out and got him the guy wanted to come like are they upgrading because that's what you do. You're always upgrading that bottom party, Rosser an awesome upgrade or is it like hey, if Roggio get sick, we really need somebody. So why don't we keep you know Leonard on the team here and just kind of give him a couple two, three touches game, five touches a game, but the real reason each year it's if McCoy Rojo get get sick or injured or have to miss some time so. I help guy I understand that question I think that that is a question that if I were to be asked that he would laugh in the face of whoever asked yeah. Yeah. It has to be worry you gotta you gotta be worded really well because they're signing Leonard Fournette and they'll pay Leonard Fournette whatever they pay him it's probably not the four million, but we're probably looking at a couple here. are going to pay him to play. Now he'll go in and and like any of anybody else he's going to have to beat out. Rojo. Will it take him much to meet out Roge- oh I don't know. Now. I was just as you were talking, I just saw a tweet come across from pro football focus where they asked the question is Leshan McCoy out because I noticed right now with Shawn McCoy is trending on twitter not Leonard Fournette. But let's on McCoy scary thing on twitter, which is crazy and what their words are is that McCoy has been informed by the team that they still want him on the roster that he will not be cut off the roster. So I think down, we look at this running back spot I, think roggio safe. Let's assume that that's right in McCoy safe they're not signing for him so he's safe we go four people. Call as down really between Vaughan, and Dara, and if you had to go into the season right now, ask I want to ask John Lewis I and I'm GONNA ask you rent You go into the season right now who are you taking with you as your running back Doray special teams captain from last year and been around for a while or keyshawn a third round draft pick who has been sick and not been very impressive in. A third round draft pick. I'm with Grin on this one from podcast today hurts me you don't cutler grounds graphic. I get.

"leonard. fournette" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Year. They had to fight. Scratch claw to get into the play offs based upon the heroics of Damian Lillard. And then beaten four games to one the first round granted by very good Lakers team. I think he got exposed I don't think he can play at a high level as the starter anymore you know yes his last two games he shot the ball well. But. It's not necessarily how many you can be a zero sum or a negative some player. Right like I don't know if you saw this article that was out earlier today. But when he was on the floor for the series, they were like a minus seventy four when he was off the floor, they were a minus fourteen. That's a big difference. He didn't shoot the ball. Well, at all the first three games of the series I think he's shooting thirty, five percent from the field thirty, three percent from three point range. So He's a high volume guy low efficiency guy but more than anything can't really guard anybody. Do I think fits in Portland Yeah but remember you gotTa. Play it. Like A. One point two five percent of your salaries is what they can pay him. And that would be. You know basically the league minimum if he's willing to take that role or maybe a lesser role. You can still play can still shoot he just he has to play more against backups than against starters because that's the way you can score, and that's the way you can stop people and finally charges Safety Derwin James Likely to missed significant time with a meniscus injury. He suffered in practice is awaiting a second opinion on injury. He missed eleven games last season after being all pro and his rookie year in two thousand eighteen. chargers have a crazy talented defense, but they seem to always have problems with injuries. Doug you are the loan shark national media member who is identified as a chargers fan. How concerned are you identifies the mail. Identifies a charger fan. having you he's a great player. He's their best player. He's argued with the best defensive player in the League. He's a game changer hurt half of last year more than half of last year and it was a preseason injury. Yes. It's Groundhog Day for the chargers you know Bosa than him him. very concerned because the whole plan was like, Hey, tyrod Taylor can run around athletic got a bunch of weapon won't lose a game won't lose. You won't turn it over last year. It killed them was Philip rivers throwing it to the other team. And then played to the strength of the defense, and now the best defensive player you have is out for significant amount of time. That's a devastating interest is why other people aren't charger fans? This is true that Jangly with the news. Well that's the news. Thanks for stopping by. Heard Lie John Hollinger is our guest. He's a former NBA executive with the Grizzlies of course, you can read his work in the athletic. I know that we love the idea that the whole league on Melo the holy missed. But I felt like he got exposed in the playoffs from what he is a guy who can still score but mostly inefficiently, and he can't score enough to make up for the fact that before he didn't want guard anybody now, I don't know how much she wants to, but he just can't guard anybody I I. I think John. He's a guy who you know mainstream fans look at and they look at the final box score and they don't realize the things he gives up at the other end where are you on mellow and where he stands down his career? So I think. I think I kinda go from both polls like he was pretty bad and Houston and Oklahoma. City he was definitely better in Portland He got in better shape put in more of an effort on defense, but he was never an amazing defensive player even in his prime and now he's no longer in his prime clearly Now what he has done is he shot three more willingly and effectively and I I think that's giving them a little more of a role offensively especially when he plays the four but I mean the biggest thing is just him going to Portland was their their power forwards were killing them was that Collins being out and some? Other guys they signed in the off season ineffective. So that was the best option available to them and help them get into the playoffs. But at the end of the day, like what is his role as a on a good team? Certainly, not as a starter I mean is he like another guy? You can be useful the bench guy yeah I think he's still probably that but that that's all he is at this point I I I tend to agree with you and then the playoffs do expose you right like it's it's a higher level of basketball and you might be able to hide one guy defensively, but it has to be your best player you gotta hide. Well I mean and Portland I mean they had to hide the whole team. Was the problem they had I mean they were just even even in the in the teething games I mean they were getting cooked defensively. It was just Lillard was so awesome offensively that they were able to overcome it. Did. You see the Jamal Murray out bus a burst coming like is he? Has he been close to this good previously his NBA career. He's had nights where he's done this but never consistently over a period of games like this, I mean this has been. The him and Mitchell both I mean the back and forth between those two has been spectacular and as funny because coming in you thought, here's the matchup of, but arguably the two best centers in the league and that would be the focus and and Yokich versus go bare is completely been the side show and instead it's Mitchell versus Murray just putting on the incredible fireworks. is the first time. In any postseason, any postseason series in any postseason at all were there have been two players with multiple fifty point games and and it's been in these six games in this series that has happened. Owned by each Mitchell Murray and I don't think the defense has been bad like like the the shock ex exactly. It hasn't been great both these teams are better at offense defense but it hasn't been terrible. The shot make I've never seen listen John you and I have watched. You've evaluated. I've I've watched in played evaluates I'm basketball for a long time I cannot believe the level of skill that we've seen from from those two specifically I mean like did look the entire league. Th There's Lillard range and obviously what what staff does when he's healthy but the shotmaking. Jim. Murray last night. I mean he steps back at good six feet for a step back three there at the end then shocks and the ball deflected he jubal left pull up three I mean it is really remarkable to see how well these guys shoot the basketball, the shots they may yeah. They're both shooting over fifty five percent from three for the series and virtually all the shots has been. Off The dribbles a lot of them with a contest. I mean these are not lick your fingers Kenny threes from the corner. These are difficult shots and they're making all of them. John Hollander join us for Miami Executive. He writes for the athletic joins us. You're in the Dugout Gottlieb filling in for Colin. All right. Let's let's get to the Lakers before the series I thought. As as you pointed out Portland and stop anybody and they really don't have anybody to stop Lebron or Anthony. Davis but five games. It takes them five games unlimited trailblazers what your takeaway watching the Lakers play. I. I don't think they were seriously test I mean they lost game lawn because they missed every single outside shot and that felt a little fluky to me. But the shooting is, is the biggest concern without a question is, can they get enough space on the floor for Lebron Davis to operate? So it's going to be on as series get harder. They're probably GONNA, play Houston next around, and then if they get by them the clippers, they need guys like Danny Green, continuous caldwell-pope outs Caruso to make enough three point shots that the floor stays open for Lebron, Davis to do their thing. Same question for the clippers I thought that. Obviously Luca had some superhuman effort, but they're not very defensive team. Of course, you don't.

"A problem with this. And I don't want to be a hypocrite Because I actually was in Lynn for net shoes. At one time we had drew brees on our roster just drafted and he was struggling in his younger years. We had doug flutie and I went out publicly after getting a lot of ammunition from teammates and others Heyman. We don't flu. You need to be started. Why do you say someone say wash your say something like they ain't GonNa mess with you? They ain't GonNa cut you like you. Whatever I got gassed up and you Leonard Fournette and let me tell you. It didn't go over well with drew. Brees obviously But more than that it put me in a bad place in a place where I actually regretted doing it because what I step outside of the boundaries of what I was there to do which is a football player. Not a general manager. Even though if I felt something and I felt it wholeheartedly. I stepped out of the House and I did regret it and I think that the older Leonard Fournette the more mature going down the lie for net. Even if this works out is going to regret putting themselves putting himself in that position. So it's a it's a slippery slope. It's really tricky to try and take on a little too much so sorry Leonard. You should have done it. I don't really have a problem with it. he's the franchise in the face of that that franchise right now if you look at the video is working out. Oh Leonard Fournette is for certain you want you want to Leonard for the Jacksonville. Jaguars.

"Fair. The second is challenges the status quo and I hate that organization such as the NC double a. continue to do things just for that sake because they've been that way for so long so it will be interesting to see how they respond because I feel as though the NCW needs to power five conferences more than the conferences need the NCWA yes but it also makes me think that I kind of want Lebron James Champion all my causes good luck with that you gotTa. Have Lebron your corner because Lebron is hell bent bent on bringing down the NCAA. Maybe that's a new show Lebron. When you WANNA raise from your boss and you went nine percent instead of three you bring Lebron into Negoti Brian in California Hi Brian Hey good morning. Daniel Real Quick Point I played ball Georgia like in the eighties right shows my age but the beginning of this the whole thing started out with players on each team's not having any kind of money that I mean even eat you know but in certain states like in the southern within states. I never paid for a meal. They found out your team. You Got Breakfast lunch and dinner anywhere you went into town royalty if you're on the football team and that's what I we started this whole thing of college players getting even food. I think the colleges each college across the board should it let a minimum pay. Either players take care of their players. You know they shouldn't be not even wanting to eat but I mean I think you know the problem though with that Brian and thanks for the phone call they eat well. You gotta you gotTA training table there okay. I've seen it firsthand in fact I would tell guys on the football team. Can you bring me some stuff back because I didn't have any money whatsoever. They bring me back boxes of like wheaties or cornflakes or something but and where do. I draw the line with this with paying players. Where do I draw the line. What if you're like. The University of Buffalo came out of nowhere great great story and then do they now get paid because they're winning a conference are going to a bowl like I don't know where you draw the line because it feels like the rich will get richer and and you know the teams that are on the periphery are are going to not benefit. USC But those teams that are on the periphery like you said like the one that comes out of nowhere aware and has a great story now now they have the ability to cash in on that whereas if you draw that line they wouldn't have the ability to do that but the person who might be there leading buffalo to a bowl game in a bowl win is going to graduate therefore he doesn't benefit at all from this. It's I I just don't know if you can pay people and go oh you go to USC. All I'm sorry you go to Texas Tech. You're not GONNA get this. Like how much do I give you. It's the reverse of sanctioning a school. You're punishing the players that weren't out there and weren't cheating. I just signed here and then the running back before me paid a whole bunch of money will now. I can't be in a bowl game for two years. I didn't do that but the team is still getting penalized gamble.

We're GONNA GIVE YOU SCHOLARSHIP and we're getting one hundred thousand dollars for your name likeness. What what would stop school Oh from doing that. I feel like that happens especially in college without the cash that's Oklahoma. Yeah I mean their quarterback's pipeline. You get is when you it is. I was telling the story and no names here but this The Star Athlete football player went to a school and uh he got a car jeep Cherokee and then he transferred he actually didn't transfer he signed with somebody else so we got to the other university and and he had to somebody painted had a local car dealer paint his car school colors because the other school gave him the car that it had their school colors.

They handled themselves well. I put duke johnson. We'll we'll talk about this more with in the rankings changing rankings changes podcast but really elevated do duke johnson after he was treated from cleveland to a houston yeah we'll save that for the <hes> for the rankings changer podcasts as evan said <hes> 'cause. I think that'll be one of the big topics of discussion. Let's go to india. I didn't really have any notes here because andrew lock obviously with a calf issue. You didn't play marlin hilton. Jack doyle braun appears campbell is nursing nursing a hamstring injury. <hes> devin funchess did play but i did not really think we could take much away from indeed. Did you have anything <hes> on their side. Now i mean it was nice to see cd on kane out there. You know after missing his rookie season with an a._c._l. But it's not like you really did a whole lot in the game. The biggest issue right now is just is andrew. Luck going to be ready for a week. One one near the team says yes andrew luck says yes but that's just a situation. We're going to have to monitor throughout the preseason. I have not moved andrew luck down my fantasy issue rankings yet but during this clean sweep i might just move them below like baker mayfield and aaron rodgers within the tier. I don't think i'm going to drop them out of his to your though yep <hes> in the jacksonville <hes> side they didn't play many starters either. I really want to get a look at leonard for net because man you know i read cheriton article on twitter by way best way to find this information follows both on twitter at evans silva or one word at levittown all one word i shared on twitter article about doc leonard fournette in the past game 'cause when i was charging him last year in the preseason they were using him a ton on third downs on two minute drill in the screen game and and i think he can be capable. They're people just think of him as a two down pound there. I think he's capable of a lot more. I think jacksonville does also. I wanna see it again in the preseason we we didn't get a chance to see him but that's the mob looking for going forward with lenny for net the range of outcomes on him is just so so so why this year i mean he could be a total diet and lose his mind than get suspended did a piss off the team or he just go completely ham <hes> so so i wanna get a look at him but <hes> we didn't get a chance in week one. Did you see anything on jacksonville in week. One not really it was i i played this was the night that i lost and the primary reason that i lost in preseason. D._f._a._s. was because i played keelan coal and trae mcbride and the jaguars quarterbacks as a unit through for sixty five yards and two interceptions. I mean garner men's shoe and q. and coal hat returned a kickoff off honored to yards for a touchdown and had called back <hes> so you know if you invest in the jaguars receivers that you're not winning <hes> and the gardner garner men's shoe was just throwing the ball at his receivers fee to it was a total disaster.

Jaguars' Tom Coughlin may have violated NFL offseason rules with one simple statement
"Tom Coughlin. The Jaguars executive vice president said Thursday that players absent from the beginning of phase one of offseason workouts, quote were close to one hundred percent attendance. And quite frankly, all of our players should be here. I mean, he's still doing this stuff. The old military, man. Tom coughing west, you know, with the with the collective bargaining agreement coming up. Are we gonna do away with farce of voluntary? If you have guys going on record saying, I'd I expect you hear suck only involuntary I agree with that in principle in theory. But the one exception I would make is Jalen Ramsey and Leonard fournette for the Jacksonville Jaguars. They had so many issues last year with commitment with the clubhouse with teamwork with chemistry and Jalen Ramsey. I don't know what he's doing with his career. But I don't know what's going on with great football for the most part not last year played. Well, I mean, he was an all pro defensive player of the year type candidate the year before last year. He was average. Well, there's no question that Leonard fournette deserves to be in that spotlight. I just find that. There's no other team. I can really think of around the NFL where there is a non coach non GM consistently issuing these demand. Here is I mean like he is. He is what Mike Tannenbaum was in Miami. Or the more more with like a microphone, but he's in charge. Everyone knows. I would say then I would say eliminate the ruse and remove this GM in waiting or be the coach the same in what way remove him from the organization false achie- and like either like, Jim he's he want. He's in a role. You're the one to be all these other. Come on Coughlin. Getting your lean. He's definitely isn't buying into sort of the Bella check or parcels idea that there's one voice in the organization because coffin wants to be one of the void is don't. For your coach. Then obviously the coach out to answer for two. It's like are you on the same page? Doug Marrone, say that is Coughlan Merlin's, boss yell. Yeah. Sure. But he can say whatever it just it feels messy to me. But maybe it's just like conditioning at this point just lifting weights. Aken I feel like it's not that big of a deal because they can work out with their own personal trainers. And then if they show up out of shape than yeah. That's a problem which which with for not has been right, but yeah. Coughlin's gonna gonna not gonna coffee they're gonna

Leonard Fournette, Jaguars And Colts discussed on One Bills Live
"A year ago. Leonard fournette Jaguars running back as lost his appeal of his one game suspension. He will miss Sunday's game against the colts suspended after his election for fighting against the bills shack Lawson last Sunday here at
Buffalo, Buffalo Bills And Jacksonville discussed on First and Last
"All of it boiled over into a moment where Leonard fournette and. I aim Lawson the Diene for the Buffalo Bills spilled over into a fight on the sideline the end. It was some punches on the field that got both players Jekyll, and that was one of those ugly moments where you thought man are we gonna full mouse in the palace this thing because everybody was involved in that it was Leonard fournette and shack Lawson and both of them were checked. And then the funny thing happened where letter for net going towards the locker room almost had like entourage around him. He had a couple of big dudes walk in with him over kind of escorting them there because they knew shack loss and company would be getting there at the same time. And shack was not done having that argument and all we thought. Spilling into that tunnels. We saw them John. And God bless those cameramen doing the Lord's work getting knee-deep into the tunnel. As we saw that fight spill over there. If we thought how ugly this might get and didn't, but it is every indication of how ugly this Jacksonville season has gotten right now buffalo. Yeah. Buffalo's a playoff was a playoff team last year inexplicably. They found a way we had that last minute play from Andy Dalton and the Bengals that helped lift buffalo into the playoff. All the buffalo wings got sent to him the donations all that great stuff. But that was much more of a fringe playoff team. And they were one that was going to be in transition with worke quarterback. And so this year you've seen the come up from that team. A team that's been able to rally around defense that is over performed for Jacksonville. This season has been a disaster. And so you see that moment for them. And you look at buffalo, and I say fight, I say all these things about buffalo that you can spin it as a positive and endearing sort of thing. And obviously this moment isn't all that endearing to anyone. But on the other side for Jacksonville. This just seems to be the death rattle that this team is in right now as they continue to lose games as now the defense is falling victim to what happens when you've got a team that so imbalance that can't count on its offense to bail it out ever that even a defense that we know has good parts that we've seen perform well that its top level got you to an AFC championship. Now seems to be falling apart and seems to be pulling apart at the seams. When you see that situation, I know Leonard for nets offense a player, but it's the death rattle of this entire machine. And you wonder now for Doug Marrone? What this looks like for him. Because when you fall this hard, nobody walks out of this thing blameless and for Tom Coughlin and this organization. What do you do address the quarterback position going forward? Because in the meantime, your players just be punched in the face.
Fantasy football - NFL Week 8 inactive players - injury updates
"Reports. Obviously do not take this as gospel. You wanna make sure that you are watching the injury report. Right up to kick off at eight thirty AM. You will get the official injury report. So you're gonna wanna make sure to watch your fantasy football teams at that time right now, we'll tell you what we already know. Josh Allen is out for the Buffalo Bills Sony. Michelle is out over there in New England really there's only two healthy running backs left in New England. And if you're having James white, you probably are in trouble up there Delvin cook is out again for Minnesota. And that means that Lamont Murray is going to do very well hope to Lee for this against the saints. Leonard fournette is probably realistically out until thereby weeks up and we'll come back. Tens of you're sitting on Leonard fournette and hope he's gonna play each week, better luck next time. Theoretic is out again, kerryon Johnson over there in Detroit is definitely worth playing. If you've got him. He is a great match up, and he's kind of matchup proof at this point. Roy Freeman like we talked about earlier is out in Denver and that makes Lindsey available. In Lindsay is a great matchup against Kansas City, unless they
"leonard. fournette" Discussed on Fantasy Football Today
"Well, if this is their definition of going for it and they're certainly not of the belief that Leonard for net is a huge part of their offense. So you are going forward that Leonard fournette not not necessarily that he won't be a big a feature back, but that we cannot assume he will be feature back. By definition of feature back, you mean eighteen or more touches a game goal line work, you know, undisputed guy. I don't think he's going to be that guy unless he gets a hot hand during a game, which is possible because we've seen Leonard fournette get pretty hot, ends hot feet. Okay. And Carlos. I'd rarely gets hot anything hot goal line work. Okay. But so to me, this is a, this is a runaway locomotive crashing into a Jacksonville Jaguars running back building, setting ablaze, and making fantasy football owners cry across the world who would rather have recipes in Nick chopper Leonard fournette. Nick job? Yeah. I mean, you get three week head start. That doesn't. That doesn't hurt at least that I know this report says that they expect him back after the bye who who knows, who knows if he's really going to be healthy. There's there's just there. There are so many variables uncertainties that I would almost rather not be involved with any Jacksonville Jaguars running back, and I might not want to be involved in the Jacksonville Jaguars player, but the makeup of talent they have could help them have a good offense, but predicting it at this point, it's hard to say for nets the most talented. Yeah. And now OSHA Canisius out with a hip injury, so we don't even get him. Nope. And I'm starting to wonder already second guessing myself too low on letter on Nick job. Carlos side isn't expected to play this week. That's according to the same reporter that said four nettle be back after week, nine. So again, if you're trading fifth round pick and you're not even gonna use them in week, seven and then you have a game in week eight. And then you're supposedly getting Leonard fournette back after week. Nine. You really distracted a fifth round pick for some insurance for four net if for I don't think so weird. I don't think so. All right, Dave. Let's talk about some other stuff. Well, Zona fired. Mike McCoy. No surprise Byron left, which is the offense. Coordinator Royce will be fun Royce Freeman as a high ankle sprain. No, it won't be terrible, offensive team with personnel Royce Freeman has a high ankle sprain and they're at Kansas City next week, and that high angle brain is usually a multi week injury..
Nick Bosa Urban Meyer Ohio State new age player power
"Drop out of school. And prepare for the NFL draft. He's not going to make an effort to come back this season. He's not going to try to get back in time for the bowl game or anything like that. He's going to he's not only quitting the team. He's dropping out of school altogether. And he's just going to prepare for the draft. And his coaches fine with it. Urban Meyer who also let him sit out a bowl game last year to protect himself because he didn't want to injure himself for the NFL draft was cool with that too. So are we reaching a new level here in college football in particular, where not only are they playing college football to get to the NFL? But now in some cases, they're not playing college football in order to get to the NFL new Loman creeping to that point. I remember miss year ago two years ago, Leonard fournette and McCaffrey to running back from Sanford didn't play in their bowl game to protect their draft. As remember these guys were big. Didn't last right. But these guys like they just made your bullets if they were the first ones to do it. Then both did it last year. So that was a creep in a little bit. Now. Now, you got creep, and I can see a guy leaving if the team is to in eight or whatever, and you know, why come back. I'll just get ready stations continue for national championship there. Right in the mix. This team could be ready to go. Download school. He's people to game the scholarship. He's lend down. He's letting everybody down and the coaches lesson go away. I don't think. That's right. Well, this right, depending on who you believe this comes from his father. So I don't know. He's saying that his recovery would take so long that he wouldn't be back in time for the bowl game. Anyhow, I don't know if that's true or not his father is a former player in the NFL who had his career ended after three years because knee injuries. So he's obviously very sensitive to this. And he wants to get his kids into the NFL and get paid before an injury might happen. And here an injury has already happened to Nick Bosa to me the other part of this. You didn't even mention Kenny is that he just dropped out of school. So I mean how obviously he could care less about going to college. There's nothing nothing in his core injury. That would keep them from getting to class, right, buddy. Say well, what's the point of being in school? If I'm not gonna play football. It is October. Okay. The draft isn't until April. But I just think that this is more and more just becoming glaringly obvious point that college topnotch college players are only there. There to get an NFL career. And now, they don't even have to play pretty soon. Kenny, it's going to get to the point. They're already missed the bowl games. If injured I'm not gonna go. What happens if you're you're really great all American player. But for whatever reason your team is foreign foreign. You say, you know, what we're not going anywhere. We're gonna get in some crap bowl game that I don't care if I go to or not I'm not playing the last two games of the season. I'm just gonna sit it out. Right. I don't need to give back from some urban Meyer, probably fine with that. Because what is urban Meyer ultimately interested in next year's he's already paying. And if he if he looks like the kind of guy who will get you to the NFL, no matter what he's gonna get that five star recruit. So that's why he's cool
Jaguars vs Chiefs Predictions
"Hill, I guess. This is one thing. I we don't know. What's the deal with Sammy Watkins yet? Right, right. Does that limited in practice yesterday? Limited in. Practice yesterday with a hamstring and drought will be huge. They need that other weapon. I mean, this is a team that plays through their offense. Obviously, I think I'm going to give the Jaguars de the edge in this matchup. But I want to say this. I think their offense is going to play a big role in that. Because I do think their offense is going to be able to display smashmouth in-your-face football against the Kansas City Chiefs defense, which is the worst in football, and they're going to be able to keep the ball out of the hand of Mahomes too. So I think that kind of plays hand in hand. Well, I think that's really the match up that's going to determine the Jaguars offense against the chiefs defense and the chiefs defense at times on Monday night looked horrible on one of the touchdown runs Royce frame and going down the right side guys were just grabbing at him. There was no effort to try to to try to tackle him. So there are deficiencies on that defense and there won't be Leonard fournette for the Jaguars offense. He's already been ruled out with an aggravation of his hamstring injury. Can Blake Bortles do over the passing game? And I like the idea of grinding it out and shortening the game and frustrating, Patrick Mahomes and putting them in a position where he is when he is on the field. He feels like he's got to make the most of his opportunity because who knows how long it's going to be until he gets another opportunity. I still think though what we saw from Mahomes and hostile conditions on Monday night in Denver. I feel like that they helped me find even against that Jaguars defense. I feel like he'll be fine. The Jaguars have never seen a quarterback. Like this guy. Who's allusive a guy who can run and throw with velocity with touch on the run can make good decisions go left handed if he needs to they have that array of weapons, I think it's more than the Jaguars defense can handle and playing in Kansas City. Definitely an edge for the for the chiefs. But but can they slow down the Jaguars offense? Not jaguars. Offense is great. But we saw what it did a couple of weeks ago against the patriots. I really think that's what's going to decide this. When you know when you have one of these games where you've got a really great offense. And you really great defense on the field half the game the other half the game. It's the suspect offense against the suspect defense, and that's what's going to determine this one. Yeah. You're exactly right. I I look at it the same way the chiefs are horrible on first and second down if they can get the third down. I think I said this yesterday, and I believe I got to look it up. But I'm pretty sure that the number one third down defense and football. That's where they can be confusing for a quarterback was defensive coordinator, Bob Sutton. He will do some, you know out of the ordinary stuff on third down to confuse a quarterback to where you know, you drop back, and you just go damn I don't know what coverages they drop these people here this this guy there, and that's where they get creative. But I do worry about them on first and
