"He didn't look good, Deandre swift, you know, carried The Rock, you know, me just couldn't score in overtime. Neither could the Pittsburgh Steelers. I mean, the Detroit Lions missed a field goal. Therapy and to win the game, then at the end, I believe friar moose fumbled the football, which was big. DJ watt, hip injury, that is huge. He could be out a few weeks, as I said, charger schedule gets tough. They need TJ watt if his defense is going to be good when they face their next you authentic of Justin Herbert, Joe burrow who's already beat on Lamar Jackson. We're going to need TJ watt. But the one funny real was naji Harris knowing are not knowing that they could tie in the NFL didn't know you could tie if you watched any NFL season of a previous 5 years. It seems like there's always been some tie. It happened to be your team, but again, Pittsburgh, no Chase claypool, no bin, TJ wah hurt. That's the result you're going to get is a tie. Now the Buffalo Bills, New York Jets, buffalo, back on track after a brutal loss last week to the Jags. Said enough is enough. They win yesterday big, big win. 45 to 17. The buffalo defense was great, force four interceptions, Mike white through Josh Allen was terrific. That's the quarterback I started. Not as terrific as Patrick Mahomes. But still decent enough. Stefan Diggs. That was the stuff on Diggs. I'm used to seeing saw last year. That was his best performance of the season. So far, 8 receptions and 162 yards in a touchdown. The judge to me really at the bottom of the barrel right now. Then Cleveland and New England. And as I said, nervous about Cleveland with no Nick Chubb, no Kareem hunt. Yes, the shout of OBJ has gone, but they go as a running decks. Argon, and thought it could be a game early. Great opening drive by Cleveland. Now is the only great thing. Cleveland did New England another team decided to blow out Cleveland 45 to 7. The Patriots look good. They are really clicking started. One and three, there are 5 and one since that star, they are playing great football. There's defense as I thought would be really good. They are playing that part. Mag Jones to me is progressing with the recent struggles of the Bengals. Mac Jones in a big stage. Jamar chase was a lock early for offensive rookie of the year..

"Last year is Strictly streamer your main guys out. You don't have to worry about out the teddy bridgewater turnover too much Touchdowns will be light for him but you know. They appeal decent status. He won't you won't lose your fantasy by turning the football over in james winston I will pick them up both of these third jamison roster than forty four percent in teddy bridgewater things. Russia's thirty nine percent of the league's but james watson ozzy five touchdowns on twenty passes. You won't see twenty passes out of the saints again remember. This is a guy who threw football for five thousand yards One year in tampa bay especially with michael. Thomas comes back if when he comes back your pricey you know pretty offense and in champions innovative play call enough to you know bring jameis winston in help him get back to where we saw him as being afraid he wasn't overall pick so he hasn't talent to more tastes help quarterback but thank god. We didn't could be gained flow but james a lot too. Yeah yeah they can't. They can't bring tastes week one like he's he showed out in. The packers is not bad. Also tasers there's a weird game all right too tight end. Targets co combat tyler. Higby soak up seven targets. Got five for forty two. I don't think it matters. Who's the quarterback that i think will be solid not focal point but a solid of productive player in that often so in need of a tight end. Coconut should be available. Tyler higby probably not as available five catches sixty yards with six target so I'd like it'd be everett's it's gone. So he'd be demand there. I think he got all the snatch at tight end so just too tight ends that you can pick up a potentially journeyed of help there now. I won't say this often but three players on the patriots that nobody was probably high on Mcdonalds thirty nine times Jacoby myers six catches for forty four yards on nine targets nelson. Galore the big play threat. Five for somebody to a touchdown on seven targets and then james white you finally saw him back on after taking last year off six catches for nine yards and seven minutes so i think the patriots will be throwing a lot not thirty nine. I'll decent amount. You don't see them. That much without tom brady but expected to be thrown a decent amount. And if they do i think all three of those guys to be pretty productive consistent players enough if are yeah i didn't i didn't i didn't write mag jones down for some reason why but He looked impressive. Confident it looks like the patriots. Trust him to Because they haven't thought about thirty nine times Do james Cam newton was low different of a qb. Obviously to make jones. Jones is not gonna take chances his act with the football and he. He knows that he's he's smart enough to know one in jackson when a check down. So you saw james widen on the nfl. The boston down either so getting dictate that he should be game but he's definitely in a game in lubec was oh so you got mcdaniels. Still there you get more of that offense. He ran with tom. Brady more than immortal. Traditional quarterbacks versus cam newton. We have changed hopefully before. So i'll look out for the titans. People are high tie downs. Hunter henry johnny smith you know they both have fad. But so yeah it's so it was. It was week one..

"Gets the captainship. Yeah it is and and and leadership is something that that you can't you can't fake no locker room that you can't sell it to the players that this guy should be the leader either either. He is areas and and when they speak with with a vote and don't make him the leader and and he you need. You desperately need that guy to be leader. It's it's it's an issue era. Great scene you have a great friday. Can't wait for the rest of the schedule. thanks man. We'll see some one more. Heard the heard streams twenty four hours a day seven days a week within the iheartradio app. Search her to listen live or on demand. Whenever you like. There's two quarterbacks in this league tell you what they think. And it's not always to their benefit cam and aaron rodgers their expressive. They just have big opinions. And they don't they say stuff that makes people uncomfortable so errands. One of those guys expressive. Kevin durant skalova. This is zoo i am. He's like. I like yelling at fans on twitter. That's who i am. i like. I like kapiti so errands. Very expressive guy. So cam newton a and there's been a lot of talk about why cam was let go. There was a story out this week. That mack was teaching cam. The playbook and i didn't cover that that doesn't sound right to me. But you cam is. He made comments about why was like no so. I'm gonna play play the first comment. The reason why they released me is because indirectly. I was going to be a distraction without being started and this was how verbally or in aura. Okay just my aura and asks this and i told you this off camera. That's my gift. Emma occurs in love love. Aaron rodgers saying my status cam saying my aura. That's they are so they just it out there. I also think there are certain quarterbacks in this league kirk cousins easy to make fun of goody two shoes nerdy. Father was a pastor easy to make fun of on twitter ryan fitzpatrick crazy beard hawaiian shirt guy and by the way. Both those guys win in a very productive but you can make fun of him. cam cover to make fun of. He's got really oil fans he's got style he's got swag and even though he's never had back to back winning seasons if you criticise camp believe me i've lived through it for ten years at a ton of pushback. I never got pushback. When andy dalton was having back to back to back to back winning years go to the playoffs and i would call them. The beige water pistol. No pushback go to the playoffs. Every year no pushback cam of a bad year. I criticize pushback. So i don't i don't mind that but a lot of don't want to push back with cam. Just i think sometimes the media has coddled him because they just don't want the pushback cam also said this if they would've asked me what i play behind they say. Can we're going to give the team to matt okay. You're going to be the second stream we expect you to be everything and some guy him. Throughout this tenure. Okay i was absolutely the truth of the matter is is he would have been uncomfortable like mag jones than beat me out. But i would have been a distraction knowing that if he if they would've gave him the starting role they knew you know the perception that they would have had. Well i do like him. Saying i would have been a backup. I think that's valuable. I think people people listen to what you say i know executives that have watched hard knocks. Remember the dez bryant hard knocks or it was the amazon show. Dez bryant blew up at a coach. He never got the same treatment in the nfl. Nobody wanted does. It was like as bad on tv. So i don't like the aura. Talk i do like the i would've played backup but there there is value in a divorce. I remember when i went through one reading about this. The value of being vulnerable is that in this divorce with in new england. Cam comes out and is vulnerable. And says i'm crushed. I love the game. It broke my heart. You wanna help him. I think most people are good people. We want to help victims and if if he would've come out and been really really vulnerable and just because i do think cam likes football and i do think he has. He can play in this league. I wouldn't make him a franchise guy but there's you can play. I mean he used to play with a bad team last year. Seattle buffalo from being having wing record and new england last year. I had no tight end. No i'd receivers so that he's got some football left. I don't love like a awareness talking about aura. It's just two years. And i think pushing back on cam all you get paid but but i think there are moments. It's a good psychology to know being vulnerable. I know guys don't like to do it. We're all alpha being vulnerables. Okay i would have preferred to see cameras. Go hurt kevin. it's terrible. I hate this. I love football. But that's not who he is. I don't think there's a ton of. I don't think there's a big market for cam. We'll see how it plays out by the way three. Quarterbacks will be hurt in the next month. I'll guarantee you know it's interesting. I was thinking about this. When i watched gronk and brady is that brady is so great and the quarterback is so valuable that when brady leaves new england that is always talk about that is all we talk about but it should be noted that the worst tight end group in the nfl. Last year was new england and gronk left. When i'm watching gronk. Who's the best blocking tied in the nfl. Maybe ever here's the best hands of any tight end ever. He may play dummy for the brand. Is anybody better at finding space in zone than gronk. He's always open. He knows the sidelines. Situational football he goofy and funny and a kid but he's built a hell of a brand so we know something but as i'm watching last night i'm thinking you know could really use gronk new england. I mean seriously if you could give mad jones anything. it wouldn't be a star receiver. It would be gronk in that. I don't think we've ever quite understood because of his silliness and because of how great ballot check is and how great the new england defense is. And how great tom brady is. Gronk is just his own sec. He's his own separate category. These are pro athletes. Look how big he is. Among pro athletes look how well he runs. Look how big. He is the only tight end in the nfl were. They will put him out wide to block defensive end no chip blocking just go block the really good guy. That doesn't travis kelsey is good. They don't ask them to do that when you watch. I always said is about mike tyson. When you can make other boxers intimidated here obama's like tyson scared other boxers men who fight for living when you look at the size of gronk with a six three and a half two hundred thirty pound linebacker. He's really his own category. Best hands in ever best blocker best combination with a quarterback ever. And maybe it's the warm weather. Maybe it's the off season. Eric mangini great point earlier that he knew he was gonna play this year last year. He didn't he looked in great shape. But i was watching that last night. And i'm thinking. I've been watching that for fifteen years. Oh how much time. The clock brady gives you that. Look when he falls behind with a minute and a half left he gives you that kind of okay and he goes out and.

"Where the action is in. Alabama is on every single list. So that makes it easier for nick sabin to pick and choose and hopefully get it right and when it comes to the quarterback position. Everyone knows how important that is. He has gotten it right. Yeah jalen hurts. jalen hurts. Could've started almost anywhere. They had to same same thing. Mag jones was not in the same league. He developed him into a great player. Bryce young wasn't that league and dj clemson came with the same credentials. Except you know. He was thrown into a much different situation. So it helped. It helped rice young not to start. The season against georgia were clemson as opposed to miami. And now i think he's going to. Be unstoppable paul. You talk about clemson miami georgia. You're talking about that part of the region but the acc in particular. They took one on the chin. This past weekend with louisville losing miami losing although they played against a team that at alabama you mentioned. But you'd still look at clemson against georgia north carolina. virginia tech. They three of the teams in the top fifteen took an ale or they finished and done with the college football playoff. I think if you're looking for a heartache. Which i know you would never do or i would ever do. You could say that. But but i think the complexities of college. Football does not support that because all it takes a or a couple of upstarts i think any sane college football fan watching clemson. Saturday night would have to agree. They're a high level football team. The problem is they were up against a really nasty defense and they just. They seemed like they digressed a little from a couple of years ago. Now what does that mean. That's digressing from the number. One team in the country with trevor lawrence and travis etienne in the backfield and all americans out on the sides but i think they just need some luck because they will get it in the acc. That's really what this is about the stinks it's got. I mean not only at the top but in the middle bottom. You had duke duke losing to charlotte which is a brand new program at georgia tech losing losing to northern illinois. That really pulls your league down in every game. This year for clemson we'll we'll just really almost unwatchable maybe with the exception of nc state. Florida state did look good and defeat. So there's a few positive things to talk about. But not many and meanwhile alabama georgia play in the big leagues. And so two sodas everyone else. So that's if there are no major upsets for oklahoma ohio state. Then clemson will probably get left out but if they could get some luck. Paul mom joining joins the show brought to you by dr pepper college. Football's is back so the fans crack open an ice cold dr pepper slap on a fresh coat of paint return to glory with an all new season fans ville by dr pepper. The one fans deserve paul. We got about a minute one issue. That's been on my mind the lot in the last several years. And we've talked about it in the past on air has been the knicks sabin era which to me looked like it could be coming to a close with the competition from daboh and clemson and how it was unclear to me after so many years of alabama is the number one program. If that were still the case and paul week one is over and it looks like that still. The case is the alabama clemson. Daboh challenge to nick sabin over. Are we still clearly in the nick. Sabin era we are. And i think after alabama max lost by twenty eight a couple years ago to clemson. It was on the brink. And then what happened. The next year we saw. Lsu with joe borough but you know i thought in many thought maybe lsu was ascending. It looked like a one year. Wonder with joe borough and much much. Like we've seen with other generational quarterbacks cam newton eleven or twelve years ago so right now who who are really the challengers. It's the same. It's the same schools but so far. Nobody has really been able to make a dent. Saving will turn seventy next month. But i don't think it stops right now because he's still recruiting better than any one else. He's got a very good staff. I mean he lost steve starkey into texas. Who did he replace him with bill. O'brien who is an nfl head coach a college head coach and someone who just moved right in and they did not nisa beat so i'm not saying it will go on forever. Some people think he'll win national championships until he's one hundred. But there's always occurred. Max but right now i don't think the end of the dynasty is anywhere near the great paul finebaum ladies and gentlemen. Paul always a pleasure. Don't be a stranger. i have some. I don't know if you've heard that. And i got some stuff in the pipeline. I'm gonna wanna talk to you about you. Too key youtube j. But paul..
"mag jones" Discussed on The Odd Couple with Chris Broussard & Rob Parker
"I'm going to pick the colts. Afc north cleveland. I got the ravens. Nfc west nfc west. I got the la raham. Yes i said it. I got the forty niners. Nfc east dallas big delay double l. A s i got washington and nfc south. Gimme tampa bay buccaneers. Nfc north green bay packers. I got the pack pro. That's great guys but you know there are seven teams in each conference. They make the playoffs. And we only got four. So we're need your wildcard picks for the afc. Starting with you. chris broussard baltimore. Ravens indianapolis colts and in a si- in a shocker to some the new england patriots yes mag jones. why into the playoffs. Rob parker great. Let's see parker. I'm willing to say the browns. The titans and raiders. Wow that's right. Why are your nose. Milwaukee jon gruden. The going there is that they have to win issue. This is big for jon gruden. And they've started well and not have been able to finish the job. I'm going to pick the raiders to make the alabama pick so the only difference. You guys have in the play. Offs is the patriots and the raiders. Other than that you have all the teams just different. It's pretty what rob. Gee i hate to be like cookie cutter ba- looking at these teams in just. It looks pretty obvious to me better teams. I think this year. I think the division only division well of the buffalo. We agreed on on seven right. Everybody but new england as you said in the raiders. I think personally. I think indianapolis even though i picked them. I think derek question mark obviously new england could be a question. Mark and and the raiders. Because like i think denver is going to be better than people think. And i think pittsburgh i really think they have a shot at the. I'd like i think they're going to be better than people expect. Dashes what mike. Tomlin does and But yeah i mean. I went with my seven i feel good about. I really feel good about new england because that defense is going to be really good dante. Hightower's back Calvin is back matt. Judy john is there. The office of line is great. I think the running game is going to be strong and mack. Jones is a good decision. Making he's gonna have ups and downs like any rookie. But i think he's just going to manage the game and he could make some big plays here and there. So i like new england and bill. Look i've always be there rob. You know they've. I've been i've highlighted the fact that he's missed the playoffs seven and eight years he hadn't had time brady but i think this will be a second year that he makes it brady. Yeah i don't know. I just a rookie quarterback. I don't know what to expect a really. Don't and i just think that the raiders have more on the line. I mean there's some mike mayock. Even if they don't get rid of chucky you know it's not going to be people aren't going to be satisfied with four straight years of not making the playoffs and odd last year. I don't know rob g. Were they offensively. They were they score. Your early night is probably why jon gruden. No that's what i'm saying. Like they score points and they just weren't able to finish the job so i just i don't know that that's one of my little wildcat picks. But i'm gonna go with the raiders. Right we move on now to the nfc. This one's a little bit tougher to call. Chris wildcard teams in the nfc. I've got two teams of two wild card teams from the nfc west. Which i think is tough is division in the league. So i got san francisco and seattle joining the rams in the playoffs for ned division and then new orleans i say i think james winstons shock some people and have a very good year and so i got their new orleans is eight and one in the last two years without drew brees so people are sleeping on him. I think they're gonna be woke awoken in violent fashion. I think this is the year that seattle falls off from not picking them to make the playoffs. I'm going to go with the rams based on their defense. I'm going to put them in the playoffs. I'm gonna go with the box hard to repeat but they're good enough to make the playoffs and what on the one more right one more wild card team hip. I'm going to pick the minnesota vikings. Now that's a good pick. I think they're gonna be. They got a shot. I don't know what last year they were. Awful every game like they were supposed to win. You know they just couldn't do it. And and it's all about defense with the vikings and they were just god awful a year ago defensively. i don't know where they ranked again. We only well. We disagree on two teams right washington and minnesota correct right. Yep no love for marin weiss's arizona cardinals man out remember that more than soil themselves. Remember that i'm hoping they'll make another jordan bed. That's easy easy money got any. I'm curious from your. How about. I mean you're outta pick. We still gotta finish off right. We still got the anticipation built along. I wanna ask you wildcard rob wildcard. Okay you're wildcards. Well i would have for instance with us. Yeah why would have had dallas winning their division. I think that having the best quarterback is usually a good signed for any team. If you're in a division where there's no clear and obvious favourite me has the better defense though. See what has a better defense didn't really have. A quarterback was all over the place last year. I don't know if that's the only reason why believe if it's patrick. I just think that he'll work for awhile with that. But that weren't good. yeah week. Four tyler hickey. Taylor will actually have both of those teams in the playoffs. I have one of them change coming from the nfl and yet. Here's the pushback creeks. Chris has three teams in the nfc west. I think that division is going to cannibalize itself. Ever there's going to be no easy victory. Why and any of those games so you could see all three teams like nine and seven heading into week seventeen because they all beat up on each other move. I think one of them's going to have a big record. What y'all to walk in the nfc in the nfc you got. I got washed. Boys wanted to division and then wash- washington seattle new orleans. Yeah everybody likes new orleans. I do too. I think that new orleans can be good. Well new orleans is you know. It's sneakily the last two years and you really thought the puppies. They've been at defensive team. The last two threats last year through four or five games they average given up like a points go back in the middle of the season. They were good and they've got one of the best football players of all time chase them who he start. Best player doesn't even star amazing and on that note it's time for the afc. You didn't give us. Did you want my you want my afc. Just a while. Taking the raiders to make the playoffs homer. How am i homer because you know. Gooden welding okay while you know what they were like two plays away from winning. You know ten games last. You've been saying that for eight years. Yes it's true. I got the raiders. I have the cleveland browns. And the new england patriots. So you got baltimore winning the division and buffalo. Yeah yep right. England you're with me are and on that note my nobody pick miami nobody to expect in you know what to expect down in either. That's a bad part quarterbacks. I super bowl here. We go in the rare rematch. I got tampa bay getting out of the nfc again and i've got kansas city getting out of the afc again. I think the chiefs throwing the mission. They remind me their mindset reminds me of san antonio after they lost that championship to miami in two thousand thirteen in the nba finals and came back with a vengeance. And i believe kansas city wants tampa bay. And they'll get him and this time. The chiefs will prevail. I got kansas city over tampa bay in a rematch. If kansas city doesn't win does that change anything with mahomes if they don't get to the super bowl or don't win as far as what him being Michael jordan no. I mean he's not michael jordan yet but he's still got plenty of time so i'm just sorting didn't win it every year win it. Every did definitely won't win at every. Nfl teams be so hard to get back and repeat. There will be to the same team from a year just very hard to do the nfl too. Many things happen. I'm going to go with the ravens and the packers and the super bowl. That's my pick with aaron rodgers winning a super bowl on his way out of green bay and that'll be the way he puts a bow on that and moves forward and then he's free to go wherever you want. So that's going to be the big story line. And lamar gets out of the afc. Finally so there it is. I'm going off the board the packers and raven way off the board big. Let's not everybody's picking up the everybody's picking the rams every pigging aram summer picking the pack some tampa bay it's mostly tampa bay and the rams the stuff that i've seen who you pick it rob. What's your super bowl. I got the kansas city chieftains and the la rams wide. He's a stafford guy big guy. Wow so when you gotta win. I i have the rams winning. Wow look at you so yesterday you were just smart man. I'm peter king you ask you were just. There are certain things that travel well no matter what time of year no matter what stadium and that's defense and i don't trust the chiefs defense. I don't trust green. Bay's defense is shaky and tampa bay. She's read like rob said. It's very very very unlikely for team to repeat as champions league last take guests who the last quarterback to do it. Was tom brady. Yeah about fifteen years ago. He's out and he wasn't a long. It's been a long time right. He's better now but they got looked at a first team in the salary. Cap era to return all twenty two starters.

"mag jones" Discussed on Get Up!
"Line. He understands about fall protection. But the new england patriots as an organization does does the best job in the nfl of developing their players. They understand week one to week. Eighteen there better be steady improvement for the young players. And they do as good a job as anybody i've played. Vince wilford his first game of his career. Just been drafted high draft. Pick by. bob law usually defensive lineman. Don't play well. Their first year. Sometimes two by the end of the season he was a completely different player. The dues calling out our formations. He knows about our tendencies helping tedy bruschi behind him on were they should fit all those kinds of conversations that just speaks to the development of players that patriots do. I'm just letting you know they're going to do a good job with mack jones putting him in situations to be successful to agree with all of that but let. Let's just again the all these quarterbacks to one who is going to have the most success for the next few years. This is a class that includes trevor lawrence. Who people talk about like. He's the best prospect since whomever includes justin fields. It was set. The world on fire includes trae lance. Everyone thought what a great fit that is with him. And kyle shanahan in san francisco so with that as the stage. Do you agree that mack jones will have the most success over the next few years was there but the more and more i thought about this and i know they might be mad at me for i. Think that wilson. And i'm not saying it because you're here a serious thing about this y'all think about this. Just take a second and think. I talked about how incompetent the new york jets were. Yes and we heard woody johnson. Come out and say. His coach was an offensive genius right. What was right to take the test to detect. That was a lot and then you look at the way. This organization is building. and i. i've i've had this discussion with myself. I talked to myself. About what keys. Are you picking up to show that a franchise is fully committed to their quarterback. You took macabre becton. Who's been on jeff. Saturdays pancake house. Yes you took vera. Tucker you went out and got cory day. This is a competent head coach. Mike leflore has a guy that looks a lot like air. Rogers from a mechanic standpoint from the way he plays with poise. So i know when everybody thinks about the jets right now thinking about the jets of sam darnold and all of that. This is not the same. And i do wanna give joe douglas. Some credit the general manager has been hitting on drafting. he's been really successful so mag jones this year and maybe next year because team building the process and the new england patriots went out and deal what they did in the off season. But when you look at how the jets are trending and the talent level zach. Listen is more talented than mac. Jones and as far as quarterback the situation for mcdonalds is better. But don't be surprised if zach wilson is. Is that guy that we compare with josh allen. As opposed to mcdonald okay. I really can't everything i read. You're planning on doing yes. Go ahead and give him a hug. 'cause you hurt his feelings early now he came that yajah's hug it out man. It's time for the mini. He said i knew this whole thing was going and hug it out. Jeff i out you saw in you'll feel is right now. Go ahead kid got what just happened. Get your words out. What just happened constitutes the best thing that has happened to the jets in the last ten. I mean you realize you're making that projection is literally better than anything that has happened to them in the last ten years. I'm at a loss. I've never been this surprise. I can i just saturday short question fellows seriously though. I don't think that's four fitch. Is it really pay attention to what they've been doing from a roster construction standpoint. Is it farfetched. No or definitely not can listen. I think i will. I will say this we could he be. Do i think fields and lance if both those guys did on the field and the systems and can pick them up. They their their trajectory will be much faster on the upswing. Then wilson because the offense shanahan runs if lance can figure that out man that's going to be off the charts and fields for me. You just don't know who is coach is going to be so. It's hard for me to talk about that yet. Okay fair enough. I like all of it and and listen in my ear telling me to go to that. I'm not going anything. I'm just enjoying the heck out of this board. The i don't even understand what you're telling me. Super teams.
"mag jones" Discussed on Wendell's World & Sports
"Is sports. I'm your host wonder wallace so glad as you could be with us speaking about what's happening now in the nfl. This past tuesday cut down day as we know this upcoming thursday the tampa bay buccaneers dallas. Cowboys are going to be getting it on the start. The nfl season but tuesday was cut down day. Teams finally getting to their fifty three man roster. I guess you could say as all of the releases that were made. The most surprising was made by the new england patriots when they let go of cam newton who was released on tuesday. Newton returned to the patriots for a second year this off season on a one year contract five point one million three point five of it guaranteed. Newton played sunday. Played two series with all the starters. This past sunday played two series. All with the starters. Dan with me lead by mag jones who played deep into the third quarter. All with the backups. But look pretty good. The preseason fourteen. Twenty hundred and sixty two yards touchdown and interception so according to the globe the boston globe newton's one year contract with the patriots had a maximum value of thirteen point. Five million again only three point five of it being guaranteed pay code bill bell. Check the decision to go with jones over. Newton was very competitive situation. He said both played looked pretty. Took pretty close to the equal number of repetitions and total between practices games. Going all the way back to the spring and josh mcdaniels the offense coordinator who's gonna gonna be working with. Newton getting and ready give me working with max jones's bully beginning him ready. What he said about newton he said i have a tremendous amount of respect for him at the player. A tremendous amount of respect for him as a human being. I think he did everything he could that we asked him to do and to try to help us win and help prepare this year to improve and for that. I am very grateful and appreciative of all the things he did all the work he put in so there we go man. Jones is tell the starting quarterback for the new england patriots for this the preseason twelve thirty six to fifty to three hundred eighty nine yards one touchdown. No wonder sections playing one hundred seven snaps. And there you go. So the patriots. Not only cut newton or released newton. They didn't then cut brian hoyer. Which at the time left. Mack jones at the only quarterback on the roster. Now the deal is that. They're just cutting brian hoyer so they can resign him again for a contract for a little money and such but for a little while. They're look man. It was mac jones. Nobody else Brian stood him or jerry stem. He's going to start the season on the unable to perform. Listen he's gonna be out for the first six weeks of the season but There developments amac jones the starting quarterback for the doing patriots. So i guess you could say. Age and experience study quarterbacks in the afc easter having. They're having a reticence. Because josh allen is fourth year he's only twenty five years old with the buffalo bills for miami to a ton of loa. This is going to be his first year as a full time star. He's only twenty three years old of course with the new york jets. Zach wilson starting rookie quarterback age twenty two and now mac joan from alabama from jack via jacksonville. Florida starting quarterback at the age of twenty two years old. So i guess with him. Starting i guess you know we say this now on he. Cam newton was kim. Newton wasn't the guy truly to replace tom brady..
"mag jones" Discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"The patriots game in foxboro correctly there was earlier in the was in the first half of the season. Outraged that richard sherman. I'm writing. I want wanna travel back in time until two thousand twelve million meena that we get to talk about this on. Bill simmons podcast. That game is very upset. Yeah that was a week. We assists tony. Four twenty three c right so weak. Seventy scored six points. You had basically you weren't scoring until week eight. Then all of a sudden it took off fear in the twenty s. And so that's up to the point is pump your brakes if these guys have some bad games early on in season. Because that's gonna happen. I've almost sure. But like everything we see and i think it is very very positive for these guys. Long-term how many cases 'cause roxburgh burger. Pittsburgh is an obvious. One wilson that i seattle year were almost made the made the nfc championship gatland really. Could've that was a brutal. Should horrible come. And then mack. Jones says as a chance. I think to be a quarterback on a good plath team but for the most part this doesn't happen right. 'cause i can't even really remember any other examples from this century of like rookies coming in shepherding attendance. Six eleven and five team that was actually built to be. I think the are gonna be really good. I keep saying it. I am more than willing to admit when they're when my team's not good. I think this team as a lot of talent. I think they can do a lot of things on both sides of the ball and even like stuff like our our kick kick returners and stuff that they just didn't that fell through the cracks cracks. Last year's. can i ask you bill for some fancy advice. Related to the patriots. Yom so i'm in a. I'm in a league with danny kelly dynasty league. It's in all danny's high school friends buddy. Nato isn't it to. I want the first year. I was a major ancient ancient again. He's never want. It's not a big deal. Not like he has a fancy you in the playoffs last year. Meena i ever one. He's he's so somatic now i took. I took you down in the playoffs last year. And then era. And then frigging alvin kamara six touchdown game. I have to be myers in this league. And i feel proud like that was a very very deeply. It's huge rosters. We have like it's a dynasty league like major no. I felt like he was like a real deep pool for me. And i feel like i nurtured him like a little baby bird. He's about to the rescue dog offers for him. And i feel. I'm so in the officer. Enticing a smile sanders. My involves a pick but i love colby and i feel like him mag jones could be special. What do you think. Danny asman this on the fantasy pod. I i worry with the pats. They're going to have like six guys or between thirty. Eight fifty five catches. That'd be my fear. I watching last year. I felt like he was open all year easily. And who is the. Who's the other receiver we had is not on the team anymore. I'm blanking the guy wanted not door set the oh bird bird. She was open to a lot. But cam was you know. The ball was flying all over the place but we did. Have those guys were open. It wasn't like they were like blanket. It wasn't like some other years but I think he's going to be third down guy but i do think john smith kinda steps stem a little bit. I think they're going to have to tight ends field like more than any team in the nfl. Easily hunter henry. If you gave me eleven games for him right now. I'd probably take it right. Is that yes i would trade for mouth centers. I actually i think you should trade jacoby buyers for about sanders in a pick. I'd vote for that. The person in our league and listening. We're not putting it up. It's too late nine ten. Our app an mvp fan. Mahomes is five to one rodgers. Ten one brady twelve to one josh allen. Thirteen to one prescott seventeen one out. See that lamar seventeen. One stafford seventeen one year guy. Rusts is twenty two one. Herbert twenty-one kylie's twenty three to one then it gets silly there's really no other great options And you wanna go running back who never went but there can raise fifty to one it. Just my back is seventy five. I made all these you which one jumped out. Which one did you like. I liked josh allen. Obvious is josh allen. So i look back at the last like ten years of. Mvp wards. And it's nine quarterbacks and adrian peterson and every quarterback has won at least twelve games race me at least so matt word. Thirteen and three matt ryan went. Eleven in two thousand sixteen. And and i am saying the quarterbacks one but you know what i mean yeah. These teams need to be elite. I think in a quarterback has to be elite leading them. I think that the bills could finish with like thirteen wins. It's just the most obvious one to me That really stood out. I think jack has a good chance like dc. The cowboys winning thirteen games Stafford maybe in the rams that they really going to run and if they can stay healthy is a good one. But i'd say josh allen is by far the most obvious when there..
"mag jones" Discussed on The MMQB NFL Podcast
"But i i really am entry because this is the year when the post brady era really begins in new england. Last year was kind of this weird gap here. We saw it with all the patriots. Opt outs talked about this before. But when there was discussions of if the would train stefan gilmore before the season last year that that was a signal from ballot check. That last year was kind of a wasted year. They didn't have that. Seamless brady to the next guy transition okay. They had a gap year. But now will really see. How is the post. Brady chapter looking. How is the plan developing. What will the patriots do with the highest quarterback. Bill belichick has ever drafted so. I am very intrigued. I don't know when mack jones will start. I don't know if it'll be him in cam. Newton some crazy offense together game plan specific week to week. There's a lot of options here but in my view i am probably the most excited to see what will happen with this rookie. Just because of all of the implications that come with being the first quarterback drafted in the first round by ballot. Check a year after brady leaves a love to that. I think it was. Mike giardi at nfl network. Who had in this. This is what amounts to spicy anonymous quote in new england right now but it's There's an anonymous patriots veteran. That said max sees the offense. The way josh does and it was like plastered. Or you're like whoa whereas like anyone would say that about any quarterback in any other place but in new england it's like whoa like wow look at that But i i love. I mean i love the idea of splitting time between these two. I mean we've talked about this forever. But if mack jones is able to take the wheel. I mean. I think this is just to be fascinating. Like you know. We've never i think this says as much about josh mcdaniels and they'll bella check and i don't know it's just very exciting and i think that there's a lot of people that thought. That really did think he was going number three like he was valuable enough to number three. So i don't know. There's a lot of exciting components here. We've had kind of a nice pallet cleanser with mac jones since draft season. Because i know kyle shanahan was sort of talking on this aisle know we kind of had everyone fooled and everyone thought we were taking mack jones but trains guides et cetera the real victim and all that was mag jones because all these forty niners fans like i will burn the city to the ground of take mack jones guys. He's it's fine like they'll be fine if they take mack jones they didn't and amac jones was not sort of caught up in that whole thing and just went fifteenth. I don't think there would have been this. Just really weird wave of negativity towards him and look. Maybe he ends up. Not being a great. Nfl quarterback and then we can all sort of I don't know we we can. We can threaten to burn cities down then but Yeah it got like super ugly. Some of the discussion surrounding jones as a potential number three overall pick. And i guess it also just shows how silly he went fifteen. It was twelve picks later in like he win in round six also..
"mag jones" Discussed on WFAN Sports Radio_FM
"Tau learn the game and not have to have it all on him, right. It was perfect position for him. He was taking them. Let's take another pretty situation. Baker Mayfield Baker Bay Field was Don't know. He was great as a a rookie Those 12 games that he played, and then he kind of struggled a little bit. But then he started the easiest way back. And now he's like a baller that pick up his fifth year option. Baker Mayfield feels Like the perfect quarterback for Cleveland, because he's got that little up and down and get greedy. Gotta have an attitude that you feels like the perfect quarterback for cleaning. So even if he's not elite, even if he's not a top five guy, which is, of course not, and probably probably probably not even a top 10 guy he feels right for Cleveland. Correct. All right, So now let's get to Julian Edelman's comments on Mack Jones in the New England Patriots. And, to an extent, he's right, obviously you you're replacing or trying to replace the legend. 19 years six championships got the nine Super Bowls. I mean, he was the man Tom Brady was in New England and Bill Belichick as they were talking about if you caught that part of it, our audience they were talking about Bill Belichick never drafting quarterbacks in the first round, so Mack Jones as a first round quarterback. Has some pressure on him. And so I step back, and I'm like, All right is Matt Joe Does it fit him right? First of all, is it the perfect situation situation really like Offense of line, possibly skill position, guys. Probably not probably not a competition with Cam two different types of schemes that they're going to. Probably not good division good, like all of those things, all of the on field things I look at them like a guy that doesn't really suit Mag Jones real well, if he ends up playing right away, so let's go to the second criteria. The baker Mayfield criteria Does Mack Jones fit Boston? He's either kind of quarterback. That's gonna be okay. When the opposing team comes in. I heard this analogy today. Beatty was gonna call the buddy of mine from Boston, he said this when I went to New York following the Red Sox and people in the in the Yankees fans were boo and they were like Boo Red Sox Boo. Yeah, if that's all they were, But when when the Yankees would come the Boston right, the Yankees now go to Boston. They would say Derek Jeter has a STD. Whatever they would be more specific, but you know what I mean. Like it was. It was like brutal It was it was specific. It was it was gritty and grimy and main and all those other things, and so I say to myself. This Mac Jones fit that Is he that type of quarterback? And is this personality gonna mesh with this? Like this? This this massive Fan base that is intense and mean and ugly. Is it fit? And I want to say no, I so I want to agree with Julian Edelman. But then I look at what Mack Jones did in Alabama, where he was a baller, by the way, had one of the great college football seasons in the history of college football for quarterback and won a national championship. For a gritty, tough. Um, I don't know. The elite team down in Alabama were quite honestly Did it feel like he belonged? No, it didn't nonsense till he played not until he played and so and so I have to draw on his history as as that and say. Julian Edelman might have a point, but I put my money on Mack Jones being the guy that can fit into Boston despite not having the ideal situation around him. Okay, There's a lot there. Here's what I take away from that. You know, the whole the whole Yankee Red Sox thing. It did Flip it. One point the vet, um and it was far more venomous, far nastier before yeah, from Boston Tea Yankees. What? Until the until the Red Sox won the World Series like that was that was anger. That was despair. Decade. That was jealousy. That was everything and it got ugly, right? First of all, I think that I look at Mack Jones and, you know, forget about well, actually, you can encompass every quarterback to wrap that around one. Is Trevor Law and again, That looks mean nothing to me. But Trevor Laurence, I'm talking about feel. No, I got you just Trevor Laurence Feel like a Boston quarterback. To me. The answer is no. The long hair and he's like a southern Quarter or West Coast or absolute or West Coast kid. Does does my God Zach Wilson feel that way with the headband? That said You're the band down anyone anywhere anytime? No, Not really. Not really corny, right? Mack Jones to may. Like the movie Good will hunting member the bar that they used to go to? Yes, like their bar that when they were up at Harvard, like their bar in Boston, where they were running numbers in the back and the Irish Mafia, and Lord knows what drugs they were selling back. I mean that bad bar great movie, by the way, one of the best of all time and To May. I'm not saying that you know, Max old slinging heroin. But like Matt Jones is the blue collar field that if he was sitting at that bar after, you know, punching the clock for 10 hours at the factory, he would have fit right in. Yeah, he's gone, but he's throwing one back to be like, all right. What do we got Nice point and at the core. That's what Boston's about blue collar commitment. And that's what Mac Jones will fit in. Yeah, I think I think you're right because we get this I don't know There's a perception may be that he's this clean cut, you know, white kid from from the South, and he's going to go to Boston, and they're gonna eat him alive. No, I don't see that. I don't see that played Alabama. That's right. And by the way, we're in the world and grind through Alabama booty. I mean, we all know his story and it got glossed over a lot, but No, we were counted just briefly. Was there is a freshman had D'you. Why you know was, you know, derailing his career Knicks saving almost kicked him off the team. He dedicated himself. Instead of going out with his friends he studied, he started studying. Still sitting in behind two quarterbacks. Jalen hurts and to atone by a loa and just kept grinding and grinding and started being a pain in the ass and practice to the starters is he's the scout team guy. He's kicking their the axes of the starters. He's bristling with saving, who's getting mad because he Doing all these things, and then ultimately he gets his chance. And what does he do? He wins the national championship Man To me, That is, that's great. Yeah, When something we talk about books, announced bitten, being written about grit. That's Matt Jones. To me. It's why I why I was so high on him going into this draft, then it was interesting, too, because he was asked about his fall like where he fell down, too, because everybody thought he was going in three. You and I believed he belongs right where he is anywhere near right. A debate on that. No. So I mean, maybe we took the like the Vegas mob. Okay, But then by the way, just this isn't aside. The money flipped big time the day before the draft that hugely the other way forge trade land. So you kind of knew it was all smoke and mirrors up, but to me Keith and he said this he fell to the right place in my mind, and I think Julian Edelman has a point about is going to be tough on him. But if all the quarterbacks and you just ran through them Beaty Mag Jones is probably the best suited to sit going to Boston and try to succeed and try to replace a legend and Tom Brady. I mean, listen, his work ethic. His approach to me will immediately ingratiate himself to his teammates to his coaching staff. By extension the city and is adamant and listen. It's pretty pointing cut because everyone's been there a long time on underdog in some ways, like Mack Jones, you know he's not that Trevor Laurence. He doesn't look like that is not the best body didn't have the best combine in terms of you know that the mean the means were out. There's got a lot to prove..
"mag jones" Discussed on Niner Faithful Radio
"But no i think that it's mac mac. Joe's at twelve would have been fine but when we had Wayne from nitty gritty. Niners on i said what i like about trae lanston just fields team. Justin fields by the way Although i would not complain about trae lance and i do believe he has a highest ceiling. mag joneses is at three. I wanna quarterback that can. How many times have we seen it. How many times have we seen russell. Wilson i remember. I believe it was a game winning touchdown. Nfc championship album. Smith had him sacked. He was going. He was going to be sat and he spent away through that i out and i mean how many times have we seen that. And we have an opportunity to get a player. That could simply. There's just no defense. I mean. I'm pretty sure you know. Non-faithful said it all the time in the eighties and nineties. Steve young when it was just simply. Hey we had. We had them stopped and steve could just do things that that pretty much. No quarterback at that time could do and i feel that with trailers justin fields. Because yeah we all believe shanahan open and all that but what happens. You know what happens. I was thinking about this this morning. Was when you have a quarterback. That's not a mobile quarterback. Even though i do believe that that matt jones can move in the pocket. it's you know where they're drops gonna be and what you get. Is you get chris. Jones battened down passes in the fourth quarter. Yeah you know and to me. It's we look back at super bowl. Fifty four everybody wants to point to emmanuel sanders. Throw in everything in myself included. I believe if he hints that threat. We win the super bowl. But you you're looking at the kid play. You're looking at the down. Ballot passed by. Chris jones and to get mad jones is it almost seems like we didn't we didn't see any is we're getting the same thing and and it's f addition of sanity is trying the same thing over and expecting different results The the super with you go back to the super bowl. Atlanta matt matt ryan can get move out of the pocket and not get strip sacked. That game probably goes a little difference and so with me is justin field. Although i would not like. I said i'm not disappointed in in trae lance. I think when you talk about intense. And i think quarterback is one of those sports are quarterback is one of those positions where intangibles matter the most leadership. I mean you're talking about a man that went to the top ten in the whack or this ain't you know some you know in north dakota stairs. This is the pac ten. This is a major major. Football conference in justin fields was the base saying. Hey no we want to play football and coming from a quarterback which we all know jimmy fan but coming from a quarterback you know his his love for football been questioned and to me either. You can't pass that up with. The man is the face of saying no during a pandemic where millions of people died. I wanna play football. I want that quarterback behind center for my team when you talk about the number one issue for jimmy. Garoppolo is is staying on the field. I think we.
"mag jones" Discussed on NFL: Move the Sticks with Daniel Jeremiah & Bucky Brooks
"And so what made me think of is when you give a top five grade in your mind. You should be able to envision this player not only being maybe the best player this position in the league in a relative short time but this guy should be able to be projected to be like an all timer right and all the time great and so. If i use that born at used as standard to do these quarterbacks. I would have a hard time saying that. I can envision mag jones being all time great and so. I'm going to stay to the standard which is same standard. We will use in the draft room. Because i think we pull it out this grading sheets from the baltimore ravens in the carolina panthers in seattle seahawks respectively. Those grades when you talk about issuing out that eight. Oh grade to reggie bush. John hall of fame potential perennial all pro hall of fame type. One of the best. We've ever seen at the thing would. That's the standard for top five great. If this person doesn't exhibit those qualities from a trade standpoint or production or performance standpoint hard to do it so my thing is staying true to degrade insistent that i know man. It'd be hard for me to eight. Meg jones in off regards how much i needed a quarterback or not a couple thoughts on that and again. I was wanna preface by saying we both think mack jones is a good player and provided. Look if he goes to san francisco. He fits what they do. He'll he'll be good player. There are thing is are you maximizing the value of your pick to get the best option. Not not just a good option. I come back to that. Little phrase used. Iron man thing. And i i've been really can hone in on acceptable versus exception like acceptable player. Yes start win games shoot. You might win. The super bowl of the rest of your team is so good. But i don't see exceptional now look is trey lance there right now or just feel to. We've both advocated for both of those players We would both take. We both have them stack. You have fields have land but we both have those both of those guys over mac and so buck i just i put like this and you can probably do the same exact exercise with justin. I feel like everything. Mac can do. And then i look at trae. Lance i said okay. The only thing. That trade doesn't have the mac has right now is probably the accuracy to that degree. Which which i think he processes just as fast. I think he sees the field. He makes good good or better decisions than him. He's bigger and then you get. He's bigger he stronger. He adds whole element with his running ability. They're both off. The charts in terms of character and leadership and work at like the only area is accuracy often going okay. Well i've seen it with josh allen. We just saw. I've seen him make gains. So i think trade trailers is going to do everything mack jones can do and then plus more. There's no way like mac jones. I like tree chances at getting more accurate than mac. Jones's chances of being able to get bigger and move around like trae lance those. That's not happening. So that's why i'm just left with like i can. I've got a guy who can do everything the other guy can do plus xyz. That's why that's why advocating for trae lance there and i would advocate persistent fields in the same breath so take justin feels off the table. And we're just keep the conversation on trae last. Because when i look trae lance. Here's what i think is important..
"mag jones" Discussed on Fantasy Football Today Podcast
"Is not a knock against mag jones But when you look at alabama situation they get the best of the best so they're rosser is stockpiled with five star talents so you're practicing against five star players every day so you go out there in in a game situation and you're infinitely better than your opponent so you really haven't seen matt jones deal with conflict and you don't want the first time you deal with conflict to be at the pro level. We just saw this play out last year with to talk about lower. Great success at alabama goes to miami deals with conflict. Can't really replicate that success at at the myself. When i wanna say this if i were to ask you about these quarterbacks would you take them in the first row or take them in the top three. Would you take jimmy. Garoppolo matt hasselbeck in the top recur customs knowing how their career played. Would you take those guys in the top three. Probably not and i think that's where mag jones allies. He's my four three two quarterback But i don't have a first round agreed on him. He's someone that. If he is someone that i think would be an ideal fit in a place like washington or chicago some place. That has a lot of good players already established on both sides of the ball so he can kind of beat the bus driver but you draft someone to top five. You want someone that can be a difference maker now. Think that's his game. Bus driver is perfect. And that's what he was at alabama he just did it really really. Well dave isn't that san francisco. I know it's a top three. Pick out but i mean so. Listen i think. That's what i i can't say for. Sure with the forty niners want remember shanahan fawning over kirk cousins once upon a time and so he might look it mack and say. He's a lot like her cousins. I don't think he's got quite the same arm. Strength as kirk cousins. But i think he's smart. I think he can make your decisions with the football. He seems to be unfazed by the blitz. And he he just seems to be the type of quarterback that can kinda be be a good west coast offense quarterback. I don't think he's necessarily the type of guy a who can like. Elevate the whole team and lead them to the super bowl. I know he just won the national championship. But i i just feel like there's something different. We're sometimes quarterbacks make their players around them better. i think that's what happens in green bay with aaron rodgers because if you add kirk cousins throwing the davante adams i don't about to adams would be as good but i also see mack. Jones is someone who's not going to be great for fantasy especially if he goes to san francisco because that's a team that likes to run the football out and be if he's not gonna generate anything on the ground he's not gonna give you rushing yards that already puts a cap on his fantasy production and if he's not in a situation where he throwing for over three hundred yards and three touchdowns every week. That's another cat..
"mag jones" Discussed on NFL: Move the Sticks with Daniel Jeremiah & Bucky Brooks
"There's not enough time in the day to talk about the guy that i actually would put third and that's trae lance now. I wouldn't put them there to play it right away. There is definitely a rep experience issued that the gap needs to be filled if you draft this young. Many's by the majority of your preseason snaps this year and probably next year you need a year. One plan probably not to put him on the field. Because he has limited rats high school he was not a high volume thrower. He ran kind of a version of the wing. Tea is north dakota state. A dozen get a ton of starts over his career So you got to build that rep powder but if you wanna talk about shoes personality toughness. It's a cert. I've had him in my office. In here in nashville. I spent the summer with them at leader as a counselor. Here's a kid halloween for the game. Those of you. That don't know anything about north dakota state. Offense of football is as complex as the nfl. They multiple personnel groupings multiple shifts emotions tons a run checks on checks within run checks. Reads are peos. Endless amounts of of information that he had to digest every week. He was a kid that went all their coaches meetings so he acted as a coach even as a young player in college. He's a sponge. he's a break for the game. Football junkie so you add that with all the physical traits and if you went back fifteen years old school evaluation he could be the first pick of the draft cause you drafted off stature traits and how smart they were. It was pretty. That is pretty much that simple you. You would just chalk him up. Because he's as physically gifted as any of them his stature as big as the strongest arm of the group that could add the context of. He's as good. A learner is good as teammate. Go as anybody in the draft. You know go final. Think jones because we were around mag jones a little bit doing the process. You know about meg jones and the success. Are you surprised. By the success. That he's been able to have his final season alabama. I'm really not one because you know i. I've always says quarterbacks is that as dependent of position as anybody as any position sport. Yes it's important. Yes it's impactful but it's also very dependent so he's has a lot of good players around him to help him. Look good and i thought sark didn't incredible job of evolving. The offense around his skill set allowed him to do more where he could throw the ball on time he can play within the structure. The offense niki use his brain to get advantageous match. And one of the great things. Ballot obama's offense. This year is how how matt jones ran the show. He processed location and small amounts of time was able to find their match ups that created the biggest disadvantages for him. He was highly precise is a thrower. He's got very good. Throwing talent he wear he lacks is the ability to play second reaction football. So if you're drafting him you need to draft him to a situation where you're going to be more of an operator. You're going to operate the offense. You're going to have a lot of keys. The line of scrimmage to get into the best plays. He's as good as athlete peyton manning. he's as good as athlete. Is tom brady He needs to play that style of offense if he is if. That's your plan for him. Then he's a first round pick 'cause he has first round mental traits and throwing traits. But if you're gonna ask him to do something that he can't do well then you're making a mistake. So this is one of those drafts. Where the gm head coach coordinator all have to be some product on. You're going to ask him to do if you put him..

"All of those guys, they're coming back next year. So to me that this wasn't about Brady being better than Belichick. I'm so Hired of that conversation, But it is Brady one belt like nothing right now. Well, I mean our foot the rosters. You know, I think it's I get it, but we're not flipping the rosters right now. Brady one village like nothing to me. That's apples and oranges. When all the success in New England Freddy to me, it's It's 50 50. Absolutely. There's no doubt Brady gets half the credit fella tickets at the credit, too. Common denominators for 20 years go down now. Let's see it. Let's see what Bella check. Doesn't he gets all his guys back on the defensive side of the ball, But he's got to go find the most important position in sports. And that's that quarterback. Here's the deal. Is he willing if he believes that somebody in the draft Is his guy in the first round. The only certified quarterback in my opinion in the first round is trouble. Lawrence. Is he willing to trade up because that's something he doesn't like to do. He'll trade back in the first round because they're always a drafting real late. In the first round. He's all about getting those 3rd 4th 5th rounds will the body of his role right? But if you think you gonna find a third round quarterback and turn him into Tom Brady two point Oh, come on now. Yeah, not another. Not at that point, You got a better chance of having lightning strike you twice before having lightning strike you that way. Is he willing to go in the draft or move around in the job to move up in the draft to get the guy that he believes Can be that next guy after Tom Brady and not get back to where you used to be, but least get a lot closer to it. Great question. And that's why I keep going back to Mag Jones. There's only so many Russell Wilson's in the third round or Dak Prescott fourth round that they don't come around very often. So I'm curious to see what happens, but but I know this Those guys down in Tampa. They have a lot of work to do. And there's a ton on and I do mean a ton of free agents on that roster. That something being talked about last night talked with us about it on last week when he joined us here on after the Super Bowl. Yeah, they got a lot of work and re signing guys like shag Barrett on down in order to try and make another move on this sucker coming up next season, but they'll be in the hunt as long as 12. There was going to say the same thing, just like Bill Belichick for 20 years whose areas has Tom Brady Number 12 plenty. Dudes may want to stay and take less money to have that guy put him in a position when another championship when it's all said and done. I always appreciate you joining us on Freddy and Fitzsimmons. Easy if it's 17 him on Twitter efforts, ESPN Freddie Coleman hit me on Twitter Koman, ESPN if Carson Wentz is acquired by the Chicago Bears. What kind of move is that for? Both parties will get to that. Next on ESPN radio stations.

Goodness gracious that'd be fun to watch and then the other one i think is fascinating. It's just mack. Jones go onto washington. I'm curious to see where he ultimately ends up. I have kind of more than that second round buck but man accurate efficient great decision maker. You love the work ethic. All the intangibles are off the charts. The question is is there.

Titans aziz azure ari edge. Rusher from georgia at twenty. Three new york jets take travis. Ntn running back from clemson. Twenty four the pittsburgh steelers nick bolton linebacker from missouri and twenty five jacksonville jaguars christian bar more defensive tackle from alabama. Like what you did hear.

Stephen .M. Smith and the Iron Bowl
"Stephen smith welcome back from touchdown. Alabama stephen amit always good to see you and great to have you on the program. So it's the week of the iron bowl you've been high on the tide. Since the first time we talked during the summer. let's start with mag jones because you told us. He was different than that was before the public. In the heisman voters fell in love with him. Absolutely i mean. The young man has been battle tested poise and career. I remember him in the us. Freshmen in two thousand seventeen with the scout team out there throwing bombs and of course coach saban told him stop throwing the ball deep all the time. King looks at cope sabres coach. Tell your defense a check me there so you got a guy with that type about and that type of confidence even check his own coach. Nick sabin that you got yourself a quarterback that can really do some special things. So i knew from mack. Jones the freshman that he was poised to this moment but also seeing the growth that he's made targeted stephen m. smith who stephen m. seems like every every aspect of alabama has gotten better the one that has surprised when people is the is the defense. Because after the ole miss game i i wasn't sure that p golden should be buying green bananas. But what's happened on that side of the ball. The main thing is coke. Sabin and pete goading have done a great job. Simplifying things on times player stink too much. You think about my job and is my teammate. Doing his job. It's the guy in front of me. The guy behind me the guy next to me doing their job. And when you're thinking about so many things of your job is and training your is to be district where confusion comes in so nick. Saban has always been one to say. Do your job and the rest will take care of itself. So she and goading been a great june above of simplifying. The game plan players have done their job. You're seeing more pressure on defense guys stopping the run better. More turnovers created a the big thing here. Paul is essentially omits game. You've looked eleven. Shutout quarters football alabama including a complete game shutout of mississippi state and the team is getting off the theater on third down so a better job of simplifying the game plan and players. You know being concerned about doing their job correctly. It's interesting. we haven't really heard much in the aftermath of jason water when he went down some of the pundits. I remember somebody. Espn said alabama was done. They had no chance of winning the national championship. How has that been dealt with on the team. Because it doesn't seem like and i realized alabama has played a top five team Yet they will seem like they've done quite well without him. I remember a conversation. I had with john. Michie paul about you know. How do you feel. Avoid behind by waddell. He's a one type player. Barry explosive guy would. He got hurt against the volunteers. You heard coach. Sabe say you know. I hurt for college football. Not the fact that saving hearts for alabama. I'm sure he pretty much does but he hurts for college. Football due to people enjoy seeing james waddell on the field. He's fast he's a bottle he's gone. He's energetic he's explosive. He's highly entertaining. Obama has found ways to work. Around this. you've seen slade. Boden return be on kickoffs. Of course he got a twisted ankle against kentucky alabama monitoring jam all week and practice. He should be able to go this week. But we'll see what happens We have seen devante. Smith retiring ponts against kentucky patrick satanic. A second has also field in that role a little bit so save has put he and different guys and that special teams role to try to you know. Fill that void but it's worked out for the most part. It is difficult trying to find that guy that can do know what j. waddell does
