"I don't buy into that too much. Let's talk about the reward for Trey Lance. He's got top 5 level upside. If everything comes together, a lot of it is because of his unbelievable rushing ability. He brings to the table a rushing skill set that isn't equivalent roughly to Jalen hurts. Maybe not quite at the Lamar Jackson level of elusiveness, but he probably has more just straight line speed. He is fast. And in that one full game last year, the Trey Lance played, they gave him 11 designed runs, and then he scrambled 5 more times for 90 rushing yards in his one full start. And the fact that Kyle Shanahan, who obviously never runs Jimmy Garoppolo, gave him 11 designed runs, very, very promising for Trey Lance as a runner on a very small sample sample set of just that one game. Terry Lance has a monster arm that can unlock a downfield passing attack that Jimmy Garoppolo has been totally unable to do. Grab those worst features in NFL quarterbacks as a downfield passing. This might be Trey Lance's best feature, downfield passing. He could have some deep connections that could produce massive fantasy events. And then lastly, the other part of the rewards near for Trey Lance is, just get the ball in the hands of guys like deebo Samuel, George kittle and Brandon, ayuk. But hopefully not on handoffs. Hopefully I don't have doubts. That's right. Throw the ball to your mind. Yes, specifically for devil's Samuel. You roll all that together if he can rush for 80 90 yards like you did in this one game. And he can be throwing deep downfield passes, you get a connection or two a game, and next thing you know, you're like 250 yards, a couple of touchdowns through the air in 90 brushing yards and the periodic rushing touchdown and now Trey Lance is in the conversation for a top 5 scoring fantasy quarterback. I'm with you. I like the upside there for sure. Let's go to our high risk high reward running backs. Who is your running back, Brian? One of your about the ten years I've known you one of the biggest man crushes you've had over the last decade, Ezekiel Elliott, who is now going as RB 16, which is way later than previous years. And the risk there is you get the Zeke from the last two seasons who finished 17th and 18th in fantasy points per game. The only missed two games during that span. He's been durable even though he's been banged up, but when your points per game are that low, it almost hurts you more than it helps you. So, but the market is adjusted. Again, going to RB 16. A couple of years ago, he was maybe the RBA one and then he was RB ten last year. So I think it's a great time to buy the dip because of the reward as you get vintage Zeke from 2019 back to his rookie year. We kind of looked like early on last season. He had a bad week one. He finished his RB 45 without he had Tampa Bay, like top defense in the league. Then after that, week two, RB 7, then RB one, RB 6, RB 7, and week 5, then in week 6, he was RB 15, but that's when he got hurt. And not heard enough to miss games, but he was banged up for the duration of the season with ankle, knee issues before he was averaging more than 5 yards per carry. And that's with O line issues that Dallas was having. A bunch of them last year. Whether it was injury or suspension, but hopefully those are cleared up and off season reports for Zika have been very positive saying he's arguably in the best shape he's in the best shape of his career. I haven't seen any topless photos yet, but he should be healthy. They'll be out there. I'm sure. Yeah, they'll be flashing the abs for sure. But I don't know, at RB 16, I think he could return to that top 5 running back form. So I'm leaning more to the reward side that I like for Zika is here more so than the risk. Tony Pollard's always there in college good and we've talked you and I have talked a lot about this. We think we love Pollard. We love Pollard. And Pollard isn't going anywhere. And I think that provides to me that limits the ceiling. Anywhere either without much money they're paying him, and they almost have to justify ridiculous contract. And they've talked about using Pollard more as a slot receiver. So we might see them both on the field. That stuff never pans out. And all the, all the pre season playing out of position talk, 99% of the time does not come to fruition. You know, the cordell Patterson's in the world, that's rare. Super rare. By the way, did you hear this? Yahoo's turned off his dual position. They're just going running back on cordarrelle Patterson. And have they done that for all players? Don't know. Because they've had something. I remember Taysom Hill was quarterback tight end. The most famous was Marcus colston. That's right. Yes, that was. He was a cheat code for sure. Whenever that was. I'm cool with it, especially when you're making that call now. You know, at least got time to adapt. We're playing a running back. He is. He is playing running back mostly. They draft a drink. They brought in Brian Edwards, auden Tate. They got a couple other guys and almost every week, Kyle Pitts is essentially a wide receiver. So yes. CP 84 is a running back. My high risk high reward running back is cam Akers. Let's start with the risk side on cam Akers. No NFL running back has had a successful return from a torn Achilles. And by successful, I mean like you're back to most of what you were before. In almost every case, you don't even get close to what you were before and in many cases you're completely out of the league. Acres will try to become the first ever running back to do it. And I've touched on acres before in different conversations that we've had. But I think I'm really going to drill down on the risk and reward side for acres now. Upon returning last year, his play was completely uninspiring, and it granted it was a quick return on a devastating injury, but just hear me out, his yards per carry in the four games that he had at the end of the year after the Achilles injury was 0.6 yards per carry 3.2, 2.03 .7 and 1.6. I think that was 5 games. That nets out to an average of 2.4 yards per carry and his PFF grade through the playoffs was 44. Not good. 6 months later, we presume that cam Akers is going to be a healthier and better runner, but history suggests that's not a safe assumption whatsoever. The historic best case that I can find on an Achilles and the next year back is Edgar Bennett, who had a two touchdown 600 rushing yard game. Edgar. All right, season in 1998. Three and a half yards per carry, and then he quit football. He knew he was cooked. See you on the cardinals? Nope. Want to try again? Packers packers. A number of other promising runners have had their careers completely halted by the Achilles lendell white, not that long ago. Mikel was sure. You remember that name? Lions, he had a gigantic rookie year, and everybody was like, you're dude's going to be great. And then he had the torn Achilles. Andre Brown, you might remember Brian in particular. New York Giants. New York Giants had a big rookie season. He was another. I almost positive rookie and never played again. Never played again. So your downside with cam Akers is it's dramatic.

"Chubb has gone their 13 and 6 in that time with Chubb active compared three and three when he's not. Their points per game average also drops from 27 to 18. The run game success, not just about the guy carrying the ball. Check this out from an expert excerpt from NFL turning point. Beckham's release opened the door for former 6th round pick. Donovan peoples Jones. He's mister dependable. He shows up and does his job. Doesn't say anything, just does his job. He never complains in the run game he's been a guy that we bring in for physicality. Running behind Donovan peoples Jones. Instead of OBJ, it was D P J, who provided the game's turning point. The latest episode of NFL turning point set to drop on ESPN+ today great stuff do not miss it. Again, Mark, is there dealing with issues in their running back room? We'll see who ends up playing, but how do you expect Bill Belichick and the Patriots to defend this brown's office? I expect them to take the run away. Obviously, now, can you, that's a different question, but his goal will be to go into this game and put it in bacon Mayfield's hands. We've seen Tom Brady struggle against Bill Belichick defense. We saw dak Prescott take time to figure out what he was doing defensively. And then Kevin Stefanski too has a big role to play in this game if that is the situation. And Nick to have done show up. But when you think about Bill Belichick, the first thing I come from his coaching tree, are the trees a part of with Bill Parcells and Nick Saban. The first quote on the wall, when you walk in for game, we can stop the run. And that is where the Patriots are going to focus at. And they're better suited personnel wise as well to stop the Cleveland Browns run or at least stifle it enough. I don't buy the defense that they play how gap sound they are. But what do you mean they're better suited? They're better suited with the type of guys. It's a three, four scheme, and you got big physical lime and in the interior, but it's three of them. As opposed to a four three when you got two guys locked in on the center and the guard, you got more out there playing a Ford technique at times you can slide him, you got Devon gotcha as well. That's a physical run presence. That is where on the O Belichick starts. And then he gets his third down personnel and they rush to pass it. That's the B Joe, Bill Parcells, Bill Belichick Nick Saban tight situation. We used to have two year digits for downs, right? If you could be a one through three player or were you a first and second down, we expect them to run, go stop that and we'll allow our guys to hunt on third down. That's what I expect from them. It's not a potent passing attack to start with. They start with the running game. And if Nick Chubb is out there, the one thing they getting ready to do to the Cleveland Browns and Baker Mayfield, they're gonna heat him up. They're gonna heat him up, they like to play a lot of man in their coverage. They're not afraid of Baker Mayfield running. Typically when you play man to man, the quarterback has the ability to run. They're not afraid of that. One, he's a little nicked up and banged up, so that's that favors the New England Patriots on top of that. They're not afraid of the wide receivers that they have, and I know what is it? Dpj, the new OBJ. Yeah. Donovan Duncan. Young kid out of Michigan, I went to cast deck. That was a 5 star that was great. But this is the National Football League in this Bill Belichick and that defense. Yeah, he's totally different. Thank good though. Yeah, I'm not standing there. I'm not saying that, but if you're quarterback is on his back and running for his life, yeah. 'cause we heat him up. Now, that's why I lose the fans. Because if you think in context of what Belichick did to Sean mcvay the first time they saw you and then mcvay got a chance to get going. I wonder if Stefanski is gonna be the former or the ladder in what she doesn't play. Baker got out the best game of his career. It went a 100%. 100%. Do you all agree? No one NFL live guys. Phil Yates's interest. I was reading the packers of officially activated star left tackle David bakhtari finally. To publish that makes them eligible to play Sunday, so one of their best players for him. Nearing a return and speaking of the packers, let's get back to Odell Beckham junior who officially became a free agent by the 24 hours ago as he cleared waivers. He's now free to sign with any team in the NFL, which leads us to wonder where he will land and I just mentioned the packers. You see the tweet from Diana rossini this morning she's reporting that on this day, when she could make his final decision, the teams he's looking at and talking to look at the chiefs, packers and saints for her league sources. Packers wide out devonta Adams was asked about the possibility of OBJ joining him. Take a listen to this new one NFL live. Where is your hope level with right now? Yeah, I learned I learned my lesson with that, but there are pretty high. I'm not gonna lie. I hope so, they're pretty high. I've been talking to him a little bit, so we'll see what happens. But it's like obviously a previously, I don't expect anything to happen, but if it does, if it does, we got a nice home over here if he's ready for that ready for that. It could work, but, you know, it's a business. So it's a lot. That goes a lot that goes in as easy as we want them and he wants to be here. So, we'll see what happens to see what happens. Adam's out there. Let's get some good grades all quick raids on. Now, Dan, my goodness, goodness. In Green Bay. I think there's a chance for it to refer to work because the creative freedom that the quarterback promotes out of his receiver receiver. Rogers for 15 years has been one of the best if not the best core best quarterbacks of pocket, allowing guys to go create and freelance freelance and special playmaker and Odell had that abilities ability. So if when they're realized, I got to learn the intricacies of this offense in fence instruct and then airing gives them the ability to go be a freelance freelance type when he breaks the pocket. It's got a chance to be really good. Hey, how about how about Citi for Beckham? I like this bit out of all of them. When you think about what the opposite of tyreek hill, Eric B enemy dials up plays a place, individuals. It's not about a system. Just look at the history of Andy Reid Andy Reid and the release head. He's always made sure to put them in the right in the right spot only that big red is what I call him Andy Reid. That thing right here. He knows how to take care of guys that have a little have a little bit of in their careers. I'm looking forward to. OBJ OBJ, Kansas. Letters now. Yes. How about a homecoming New Orleans group? No doubt. It would make sense what makes sense since Leo del Beckham junior is known for a guy that can take the top off deep off defense lead the way in the wide receiver room. And when you think about Jameis Winston and what they wanted to do, they wanted to be more explosive in the absence of Drew Brees. Unfortunately, James has the torn ACL. But when you look at this offense, he may become the number one guy depending on what happens with Michael Thomas. I know stop. Depending on what happens with Sean Penn, you think about what Sean Payton history is, right? You have Michael Thomas a hundred ball catch a year and a year out. Phenomenal football player. Marcus colston, nobody knew about him coming out of hospital. He became an all pro bowler. So this is this is one of those situations in New Orleans where if Sean Payton wants to manufacture an offense based around the guy it's been shown to work really well for those individuals that he decides to promote. Go ahead. It means you're picking Trevor Simeon and Taysom Hill. I'm just giving a reason why I'm coming. I'm just giving the reason why. I'm giving positive stuff. MS LR will be right back.

"And that's that's not a great quarterback rating in this day and agent. And i don't know that it'll be enough to convince howie roseman to keep him as a franchise quarterback because seems pretty obvious to me from the teams pursuit pursuit of shawn watson. This summer that the front office doesn't believe hurts is the guy and that is much as anything else is why. I'm kind of pumping the brakes on a hertz breakout season here in twenty twenty one. I think he's gonna struggle a little bit. And i just don't. I don't have the confidence that he is going to cement himself. As this team's franchise quarterback. I think this team in their mind and in their heart has already decided that they want a different franchise quarterback. He's going to have to do a lot this season to change their minds. My third bold prediction milton williams. We'll have more sacks than derek barnett. Now maybe this is me being overly optimistic and enthusiastic about the versatility of milton williams and how he's looked so far this summer and i am certainly one of the low men on derek barn. I think the oft injured first round pick has talent but has yet to put it all together. And i don't see him doing it here this year either he has never put together the type of dominancy and that we had hoped he would and i think williams has been impressive. I think he's going to see time at both defensive tackle and at edge rusher third round pick last year going to get an opportunity to play a little bit especially i think as the season rolls along and i think barnet's gonna miss time so i feel like milton. Williams is a guy who could put up four five sacks this year maybe more than that but probably four or five saxon. I'm down on burnett. i don't think he. I don't think he gets there. I think he's gonna lose playing time to a lot of different players here during the course of the season. So gimme milton williams with more sacks over derek barnet's at told you these were bold predictions these are these are not necessarily you know making a whole lot of sense. But that's why they're bold zakar. It's will out catch dallas. That is my fourth. Bold prediction was good to see zakar. Speak to the media week. He had offseason ankle surgery. Which certainly sounds a was hampering him. The the ankle was hampering him last year in. That might have been one of the reasons why things were things. Were so tough. He says that He's resolved himself to being philadelphia. That the differences between the team have been mended so it feels like his head's in the right place and if his body and his head are both healthy and in the right place i think he is a better player. Still in dallas guard. I liked dallas goddard's talent but the guy cannot stay healthy for a full season and he's never shown that he can be a true volume tight end in this league so i do think their numbers will be close but even without erz last year was only able to suit up for eleven games. He caught forty six passes for five hundred twenty four yards without soccer. It's in the lineup. Last year before that in two thousand nineteen he had eight catches for six hundred seven yards. In fifteen games. I think a healthy irt speech. Those totals and i think jalen. I think jalen hurts is gonna look for a reliable route runner and pass catcher and i think that's zakar. It's healthy zakar. We'll beat out dallas goddard in terms of receptions and yards here in twenty twenty one bold prediction number five. Listen i'm big on the kenny gain. Well trained guys. And i do believe. He will emerge as the eagles top receiving running back this year. I know he got off to a slow start in camp but he is really come on over the last few weeks which is good news for both jalen hurts passing attack and of course last year mile sanders after a i opening rookie season catching the ball fell off the cliff as a pass catcher. He went from fifty receptions his rookie year to twenty-eight last season and five hundred nine receiving yards to one ninety seven in two thousand twenty and yet he played in four fewer games but look at the catch percentage that also dropped significantly from seventy nine point four percent in his rookie year to fifty three point. Eight percent last year so mile mile sanders. They're going to keep trying to work him in the screen game because he is dynamic when he has the ball in his hands and boston scott. We'll still be around. He's a pretty good player but he only twenty five balls for two hundred twelve yards last year. I think kenny gain well is going to surpass both players in terms of receiving threat out of the backfield and emerge as the team's best pass catcher in two thousand twenty one in terms of running backs bold prediction number six on pumping the brakes on quiz watkins. Kids i'm someone's gotta do it. Someone's gotta pump the brakes. And i just feel like i don't see him surpassing five hundred yards receiving this year. I want to believe i really really do. I don't like being a pessimist but we get caught up in the echo chamber of hopefulness sometimes and we disappoint ourselves. And i think it. I think it puts unfair expectations on the players and the coach and the quarterback. Sometimes when you expect these grand things and they're not able to deliver you have to understand the quiz. Watkins is a former is is a six round pick in his second season. How often do those types of guys emerge as true outstanding number two wide receivers. It doesn't happen very often. And it almost never happens with the philadelphia eagles. Now he has looked really good this year he absolutely has but it is a tall order to expect a second year. Sixth round. Pick to all of this sudden. Be a starter on this team. Now he could he be a rod smith. Could he be keenan mccardell. Could he be donald driver. Marcus colston yeah. He he could be all those guys drafted in the sixth round or later he could be one of those guys but it seems to me. That consensus is that it's going to happen when the odds are actually far better that it doesn't tap now if they get if they get four hundred fifty yards from quiz watkins and the other guys jalen raider and devante smith step up and watkins is your number three then. That'll that'll work. But you'd like to get a little bit more from your number three receiver than less than five hundred yards receiving. I'm just. I'm just saying guys. Pump the brakes a little bit on this because while i like the idea of quiz watkins and he has played well. It's not entirely fair to him to be putting eight hundred yards on him nine hundred yards on him which i feel like nobody. I haven't heard anybody come out and say that. But i feel like that's where the expectations are starting to go. Because there's a lot of excited talk about quiz watkins and everybody just again pump. The brakes a little bit number seven bold prediction number seven. And maybe this isn't that bowl. Prediction devante smith will be offensive. Rookie of the year might be bold based on. How i feel about jalen hurts. I think jalen hurts is going to have enough good games in order to pile up some stats for devante smith but i also feel like people are sleeping on the impact kyle pits is going to have on.

"All week on nfl network. Yeah i don't know things when i think of that. You're the marshon. Lattimore is on the top of his game or we have serious concerns about the saints wide receivers and their inability to get open. Now i will say this. I know you are guys always followed the saints like yup. It's kind of like a party. Shirley like this at. I mean is it. Is that your hometown. It was my childhood team. Yeah my pops worked there for thirty two years and you know. He went home other destination. So i get. I get this wrong so i knew the detroit. I didn't know you were guessing for thirty years. Yes nine hundred sixty nine to two thousand. Oh okay so joy thing oh so. That's that's really your squad like deep down. Yeah that's it. That's the childhood devote. Well you know how family loyalties go though right if if there's an ceremony dirt man you have mixed feelings when you walk in the bill rate. It's not the same time has passed but yeah go ahead. Oh i get that. Because i can say this. I have mixed feelings with five teams that i work. I'm sure that played. And i gotta let go like it was up but i do worry about their receivers and the playmakers maybe lack there of on the perimeter but then the thing that always brings me back. I've seen this saints team for years. Half production with the bunch of death. Henderson robert mitchum before he got that big contract or visit every hit. Marcus colston marcus coast. I mean like they've done it now. The difference was i think the common lands more drew brees whatever. You have a different quarterback situation to ads the key. Bud changes it. And i'm so fascinated by this quarterback battle because in my mind you start james west and tasting. Meal can do what he's always done but attendance else. Arts how does it change his utilization. Yeah that changes the changes it a little bit. We had this conversation actually with dj Who was a part of our show yesterday. Here from london orleans and felt the same way he was like. If you you know if you add jason as the starter you lose janus entirely whereas if you take jamus you can still have taste if you take james as the starter now..

"The whole gamut marcus. I might point out to people pursued an executive mba program at george washington university and he made a series of investments in startup companies operating in the health and the sports sector. And i'm going to believe that. For most athletes. They have been doing one thing for very long period in their life. And they're probably the fear factor comes in. They're going into a field that they don't understand don't know they've had people taking care of them for most of their lives. And that is something that really affects a lot of these athletes. Am i correct observation. Marcus yeah i. It's tough you know you put so much time effort and energy into into a singular goal and it's i mean it's really. It's tough to build skill sets outside of that I think you know. That's that's true in in really any any walk of life. And i think especially true in a you know feeling like professional sports. Because there's there's you gotta you've gotta give it one hundred ten percent just to have a shot to be successful. Yeah i know you co created as the education executive education program at columbia university business going. It's focused on providing current and former professional athletes with the tools needed to harness their competitiveness and ensure financial success. Tell me a little bit about that program. And what you're observing with these former athletes so so really the course I wanted to create it and really from from a lot of my own experiences. So as an athlete you get a ton of you get a ton of access to to Some good some not so good and they come from from people in your network. People from outside of your network and what happens is a lot of times. You're not necessarily equipped to deal with. You know the opportunity in that coming coming here way And we really just wanted to develop a in a program that gave gave these athletes tolls to be able to identify a really bad opportunity. early on and be able to move away from it. Conversely identified good opportunity. And you know continue to you. Know conduct your diligence on it and continue to go down down the pathway where you may or may not partner with that business so Again a lot of that stuff is stuff that i kind of learned on the fly You can't get into the investment game and you know not get punched into a couple of times so The courses really developed from standpoint of you know giving some of my peers the the opportunity and the information to To take less of those punches to the gut and really you know being a position where you can control your destiny. In a lotta ways. We all know about the richest irag stories with athletes. And i suppose that it would be kind of a a very tough situation for them to decide what to do with their money. It's not something that they really had to do for a long period of time when they were playing. Yeah i mean. I i when i talk about it. I quit to Really lottery winner. I mean and if you really look at it at its core You know a lot of these a lot of these guys. You're getting you're getting these dollar contracts that you know anywhere between twenty to twenty five and i challenge anybody you know. Fresh out of college at twenty two to successfully manage a portfolio It's just not a skill set. It's just not something that's in your wheelhouse early on and you gotta go And really equip yourself with the right team. The right knowledge resources to be able to do it efficiently. What's the best piece of advice you ever got. Business wise I would say it. It's really simple. I mean it's really get involved in businesses that you that you understand And i i think it might sound oversimplify but The more that you can really dig in and roll your sleeves up into business and really understand you know You know what the product is. What the service is and and really be able to relate to it. I mean it just gives you a different perspective as opposed to you know a business that you know could be a great opportunity. But you don't understand it. You can't really contribute. Oh you can't really actively participate in in in the business. Are there any similarities. Marcus between the business of football business of sports and the business of business. If you know what i know absolutely and i think one of the things that initially attracted me to the The investment space without me knowing that attracted me you look at a lot of entrepreneurs founders There's some traits you know in the ones that make it that that are direct correlation to you know the athletes that are able to make it to the professional ranks and It's something i. I like to call irrational confident. It's in what i mean by that is As an athlete. You have to have confidence in yourself and your work ethic in you know your preparation that you look at all the numbers And all the probabilities around you you know actually achieving your goal and there's a mindset that i cannot work the numbers and i can i can be that one percent and everyone else's is ninety nine percent and when you look at a lot of entrepreneurs as founders that that mentality if that mentality is present then then the business has has a chance of being successful five seconds left when you look back on both your business career now and also your playing career. What's sense of satisfaction. Do you have knowing the road that you traveled Obviously with with My football career. I just you know being able to live a dream. it's something. That's you know something that can you know my son can enjoy and and something that you know always be able to look back on and and you know. Be proud of what. I was able to accomplish there on the business side. You know. i'm i'm. It's exciting. Because i really just getting started You know to be able to take what i've been doing you know do it for the next fifteen twenty thirty years You know. I always say i'm working and grinding towards an unknown. Go right now. And that's that's part of the exciting. The site the excitement behind it. Marcus thank you very much. I enjoyed watching your career. But i'm really happy that you made the transition that you have and also that you're happy helping other athletes also move away and and carry on with their life. You're welcome back anytime. My friend take care. I really appreciate you having me. A marcus colston with us former wide receiver. He played his entire ten year career with the saints and boy was he a good when he was one of the key players in the saints.

"Welcome back. I'm Jim Romas. I mentioned Big, Big NFL Day. Coming up next segment, a former all pro defensive end to Marcus, where coming up next hour, a former NFL db Jerry's Butler, but as promised, right now, we're joined by wide receiver for the Minnesota Vikings. Coming off another enormous game. He had nine receptions, 121 yards and a TV and that win Sunday over Jacksonville for the season. 61 receptions over 1000 yards, seven touchdowns. In fact, he's fourth in the league and receiving yardage. He is the fifth player in NFL history to reach 1000 yards in his 1st 12 games. He was the 22nd pick overall in this year's draft. Minnesota is at Tampa Bay on Sunday. Just in Jefferson is my guest. Justin. Great. Have you on how are you? Mommy. Good. And how are you? I'm great. I'm great. So good to have you on the show. I mentioned just another huge game for you on Sunday and that one over Jacksonville. I laid the numbers out. I'm telling you, I mean, that'd be like a dream game for almost any other wide receiver. But you made it seem pretty natural and pretty easy. What was your mindset going toe last Sunday's game. Really just just trying to provide my team just doing whatever it takes in order to set my team up to score and to get the dub at the end of the day. You know I mentioned at the top, though you're only the fifth player in NFL history to reach 1000 yards in the 1st 12 games, the other guys who did it or Randy Moss and Kwan Boldin, Marcus Colston and Odell Beckham Jr. So what's it feel like to hear your name mentioned along with theirs? It was amazing, and it's crazy that I've grown up watching those guys, you know, watch different cases, different films. And just trying to learn everything I can from those different types of guys. And it's just honest. Oh, to be in the same conversation with them, just in Jefferson joining us. I mean, those are awesome big names, But then you've got the name Randy Moss, and you're on pace to break his rookie records. Four receptions and receiving yardage. I mean, these are historic marks. What about him? Specifically, what would it mean to move past Randy Moss on those lists? I never do it. It will be a big honor, especially because he's our Hall of Famer and, um, I mean, he's considered one of the best receivers of all the time. So, uh, took break his record and, uh, comic conversation with him. It's unbelievable. It's a blessing to be in this, um, situation and, um, I can't actually anything more keep hitting up about the numbers. But what about the actual transition? The transition from college to the NFL? Is not easy, and especially in a year like this right where the off season is so different, But you're making it look really smooth. What has it been like for you? Has it been easier than you expected? Uh um, I won't be humble about this question, but a little bit. Um, you know, just just plan it'll issue and plan against, uh, those SEC SEC teams pretty much every week. Um, you know, you kind of get used to going up against those top top tier guys and putting on your best performance every week. So I kind of just had that thing. Same mindset coming into the NFL, just turning trying toe. You know, just playing my ball every game just in Jefferson. The Vikings is joining us. You know, it's interesting to me is it's not just that you're being talked about is a potential offensive Rookie of the year. But opposing teams like the Packers are now treating you as the number one receiver. And that's when you've got a two time pro Bowler and Adam feeling also on the field. What's it mean to you to know that you've already earned that kind of respect? And then how do you go about adjusting to defense's, which were already adjusting to you in such a manner and putting so much focus on you? Um, the thing about that that question um you know, I don't really have toe. I don't really have to worry about that too much. I just rely on Coach Kubiak, uh, and play Carlin and, uh, setting us up for the right position. So, um, you know, he's the one upstairs looking at the defense and seeing what they're in, and, uh, you know, calling plays off that so, uh he's been doing a great job just Putting us in the same position to score talking to Justin Jefferson of the Vikings, and you go back to that. Bye week in October. The team at that point was one in five and, you know, nobody really knows unless you're in it, and you're inside of it. But from the outside, it looks like everything was falling apart. But then you guys come back. And you've gone five and one since that by how were you able to turn it around the way you did. I'm just beginning to year. We didn't have the energy and that energy that we have now, um I mean, we just wasn't used to not having any fans and, um, you know, not having pre season and, uh, a couple guys nicked up. So, um, you know, the second, the second part of the season, we brought more energy. We got comfortable with each other. Um, Some guys got healthy and We just started going out there just performing and, uh, just going out, then not making that money ever risen and putting points on the board. Just I'm curious like guys, guys said this and it's kinda like what you just said that when you first got there, and there were no fans, the energy was not the same. She had to create your own energy yet to bring your own choice. How'd you go about doing that? Um, you just have the party. Did Donald, you know nothing. Nothing really would get you to the point where it feels like a game that would have really used to, But you know, you just have to find it in yourself to go out there and just perform, uh, just playing for your brother's. Besides you and I destroyed a trying to go make the world shape. So we tried it. We're trying to have a goal of, um one in the Super Bowl. And in order to do that, You gotta win some games, talking to Justin Jefferson for a few more moments. You know when you have the season that you're having right now, and then when you're coming from l s u off a huge season international championship people who don't know or don't know your story or just going to assume that you are a legend. Coming up through high school. But that's not necessarily the case. In fact, the truth is you were rated as a two star recruit by some services. You were actually unranked by ESPN. So what were you like as a player when you first arrived in high school? Oh, very small. Um, very small. Um, I mean, I knew I knew a lot about football. I was I was a fanatic at you know, knowing Different positions and having the God ability toe do different positions, But, um, I definitely didn't have that size. Um, that you know, top. Up here, guys in high school head, But, um, just trust in the process and just learning that, you know, I'm going to get bigger and stronger than I just have to wait my turn. So Waiting my turn. Just been in the weight room, just getting bigger, stronger learning more about football, and, um, you know, before you know it, I'm planning an issue and playing for a national attention for a young guy like that. Don't have that mindset. That's what it comes down to me to me like you knew like you didn't have the size, but you have the proper mindset. There's this great story that you went to a camp in New Orleans. In the spring before your junior year of high school. You ran a 488 40. Your dad said your knees were bothering you..

"The Jets here on this last couple of drives, Uh, he had Has thrown for only 186 yards, but he's rushed for yards tied. Johnson is rust for yards. 99 of them is the Raiders defense has not played well here in the second half. They just grabbed the lead A few moments ago, untied Johnson's one yard touchdown run that digest were able to take the ball over and good field position as a result of her torch turn over their car, completed a pass to a rookie ride receive a Henry Rugs. Who fumbled, Marcus May recovered the just to go over on the 44 yard line and then drove to grab the lead. So right now, the Jets of playing defense rich 4 49 remaining in the fourth quarter. The Raiders have the ball 1st and 10 on their own 38 yard line to the jester on top. 28 24 Mike. How For For the most part, How is the jet defense played today? Just so that was a unit that had been getting at least some credit for for anything that they jets might have done. So far this year. Well, before we drink, tell with Marcus may just broke up a long pass attempt, uh, to Henry rugs on about the 10 yard line on a deep pass. So on cue rich, you asking about the defense? Yeah, uh, they have played reasonably well. I thought they were too soft and playing the tight end as a zoo Waller. It was just going crazy, and they finally put the clamps on him a little bit so car is now going to the wide receivers. But you know, it's been an underwhelming game with the two turnovers have really helped. And that's what we talked about before the game is to just defense can turn them over a couple times and help the offense out. And that's exactly what happens. So what, so far credit to the defense? Alright. Thanks, Mike. Let's said to Jeff Cell right now. In Atlanta, where it's a close one. It's now a five point game. Here's Jeff. In a shocking turn of events. The talkers have turned. This came around. They just scored a touchdown. Right now it's ST 21 Falcon 16 17 43 to go in the game. Matt running in a single touchdown pass to Russell gauge Our brilliant Dr led by Ryan, eighth Place 85 Yards. Three minutes and 26 seconds. Now. Before that the Saints were 21 Day nine. They were at the Atlanta five yard line and tasting Hill. Finally, banks of the steak Stumbles on the Steven needs Sack Jones recovers it. Atlanta takes over the 15 and from there, lion tried to the team down 85 yards to make this a one score game with half a quarter to go before that dry the Saints at 22 1st sounds of 10 for Atlanta and the Saints have held the ball for 32, a half minutes. Only 15.5 with a balcony that Ryan now on the day 16 to 32 206 yards, that one touchdown pass Now for New Orleans Taysom Hill. Still a good day, 25 34. 222 yards, two touchdown passes 15 you ordered to take Warren Smith. Had 11 yard Jared Cook album Cabrera 14 carries 86 yards. Michael Thomas, another spectacular day that I'm receptions 105 yards, but right now the Falcons air in this game It is 21 to 16 saints. 7 43 left in the game. All right, Thank you very much. Jeff Celso a good one. So far today in Atlanta, where the Falcons are coming off their most complete game of the season. They route of the Raiders last week in the Raider struggles continuing right now, with 4 20 left, They're down by four of the windless jets. Let's go to Erik Nelson in Minneapolis, where the other part of that draft day scenario, uh, is playing out favorably right now for the JAG. Wars. So here with more on that is Eric. Yeah, rich and you can see why the Jaguars have walked 10 in a row. Costly mistakes at exactly the wrong time. We've got 4 15 to go in the fourth, Minnesota up 21 to 16 facing a second and seven at the Jacksonville 30. Now, moments ago, the Jaguars at the ball they were right around midfield. Mike Glennon hit Chris Conley with a completed pass. Then calmly costs up the football. The fumble is recovered by Cameron Dance Lor, The rookie out of Mississippi State's Oh, by the way, had a huge interception earlier in this game, the first of his career. So instead of Jacksonville, possibly moving down the field to get a go ahead, touchdown or even a field goal. They give the ball back to Minnesota, but it's still a close game. In fact, the Vikings We're able to get two more points. Early in the fourth quarter when Clinton was sacked by ice 80 Odetta Bo for a safety in the end zone. And that's how we got the 21 to 16 we talked earlier. In these reports about Justin Jefferson is certainly a rookie of the year candidate. The White House from Ella's You now the fifth rookie receiver that have 1000 or more yards. In his first year, and he joins a club that includes Odell Beckham Jr. Anquan Boldin. Randy Moss, who did it right here in Minnesota and Marcus Colston. So congrats, Theo. Justin Jefferson. He's putting up monster numbers. In fact, today, Jefferson total of Catches. He has eight for 112 yards and a touchdown. His counterpart, Adam Feeling seven catches for 66 1 touchdown. The Vikings have now brought Dan Bailey in He's going to try a field goal from Right about 48 yards out to try to attack on three more has not been a good day. So far for Bailey.

"Oh, Donald 866496 23 100 cops. I'm out here yesterday, hanging out trying to get Trying to get psyched up for the Sunday viewing schedule First day and I was wondering about you almost texted you. But then I thought, Nah, I'm gonna leave alone. Let me Joyce yesterday's game. Yeah, because I I wanted to ask you, but I just figured I'd do it today on the air. I want to tell us watching that Saints game and I'm like does co pay the Saints or is it just your brief Because I started thinking like You know, And by the way, I was actually rooting for the Falcons destination because I kind of want to see Matt, right. I like that. Ryan, and I'd like to see him do something this late in his career and and always having a tough time with this year's Falcon squad. Would you think about him in a in a gold helmet? I know. No, I know, but, you know, he's not gonna like he a mobile. Everyone's like mobile Mobile mobile. Gotta have a mobile got Matt Ryan ain't going anywhere. No way and that Ryan got destroyed yesterday to kiss up to the taste of hell stuff. I know. And I felt bad for Matt Ryan because he just took such a beating, and he couldn't get away was Brutal but anyway, so I said so yet answered that one. Do you hate the Saints? Or is it exclusive to Ah, Drew Brees. Let's start there. I don't need the same thing. All okay, So it ZTA Breeze thing you know, it's funny is, um Who was that they had used to have the Raiders had that quarterback Aaron was that guy's name? Who? Which team and he used to play for the Saints. Aaron Brooks. Okay, Aaron Brooks, However, the same like Marcus Colston and then meet him like that kid like before. Drew. Bernie's got there. The same kind of a fun team like they weren't bothering anybody, right? Yeah, I don't hate them. I didn't have a problem with him yesterday. The problem is in rooting for them now, like I know breezes coming back, So if they're winning that, it's a great. Um, I'm gonna deal with this guy and in January In February again like that could be a headache. But what I noticed in that game yesterday? It's funny that you mention this about the mobile quarterback. It's clearly not just a trend in the NFL. Well, what do you mean? He used to be like Michael Vick was the mobile quarterback right? Like you have a guy like Culpepper, who could roll out, but he was a big arm guy. Donovan McNabb could use his legs. But not in the same way that Michael Vick would. Now you've got this quarter. I mean, like, Take one look at the Carolina Panthers yesterday with P. J. Walker. He steps in and his mobility was a major factor, and he's getting guys open downfield. You senior with Taysom Hill now where they can just they can just decide. I'm gonna catch the ball. He was the leading rusher and he ran for two touchdowns. He ran for 50 yards, and he passed for 230 something yard. So you look at the mobile quarterbacks that air starting for teams in the NFL. They're tasting home with the same to go. Russell Wilson? Yeah, Murray with the Cardinals. There's probably a few more. Patrick Mahomes, I would say, is a mobile quarterback with Kansas City quarterback.

"Time for some foreplay with Papa in London. I'm Dirk. Deeper. Four chunks of audio that really get you going. I have a gift, and I am trying to not be selfish about it, but to use it. On KNBR 1045 inches be sports leader. All right, let's start here. Mammy Yoko. We haven't talked about Jimmy Garoppolo in his future in a couple of days, so I'm sure that people really want to know about that. And what has changed. Uh, Matt Miyoko was on yesterday. Right here on KNBR is he is not only a great insider for NBC sports barrier, but he is in our pregame show as well And that joins all the shows, and Matty said yesterday that he wouldn't bet on Jimmy J being a 40 Niner. In the future. Were a betting man. I guess I would have to say that he's not back. If you look at his deep passing staffs, and just how many times he throws it deep. I mean, that's the whole idea of this offense is to establish the running game or at least have the threat of the run. You know, they have Mostert. Ripping off those big runs. To be able to then make big plays in the passing game. And Garoppolo has been kind of this dink and dunk quarterback. And when you so that's fine, I guess. Two degree I don't think it's what Palestinian wants. He wants big plays made in the passing game. But if you're gonna dink and dunk then there shouldn't be. As many turnovers as there are, you know, there shouldn't be the interception, so it's almost like you're not getting You're getting all the negatives. Without the benefit. Okay? That that's interesting way to put it. Yeah, I mean, you know they the average air yards that they talk about, and the lowest in the league is Drew Brees. I think Jimmy's third and Nick Mullins was seventh. This was going into the game last week. So they get a guy Drew Brees and Drew Brees. Is Aziz first, right? You know, he would always throw whether is Debra Henderson, er, Jimmy Graham or Marcus Colston. You know he would throw deeper shots and seam routes, mainly to Graham. To stretch it out. But you know the premises to get the body your hands quickly, and it's a short passing game. But breeze does not throw the ball to the other team. Uh, Jimmy had you know he hasn't played as much this year. Last year. It was a problem, you know, periodically. The interception rate was a little bit too high. I think we'd all agree through 13 last year. This year, he threw five When you know we only champ 240 passes last year was 476 the percentage Is still a bit of an issue and annex. Some of those were. Certainly the Miami ones were when he was playing in a bad ankle. So that's mats opinion. Uh, I think they're opened everything I mean again. Everybody wants this decision made today. November the 17th. But you don't You're not going to make this decision. Until March, 17th whenever the new league here starts Really? You're gonna make it and probably February when you go to the combine and look at okay, We're gonna trap somebody to trade for somebody, You know? How do you do this? I think the verdict is out on Nick Nick throws too many interceptions for me. For a guy who was a limited Armida limited athlete and a guy's studies as much as he studies. You know. How does he not see Malcolm Jenkins? You know, in the age gap loving a blitz them back it out and being a robber right there. You got to get your eyes on him. So you know, it's a hard position. Not everybody can play it. And I was watching Kirk cousins last night or wash it back this morning, John I think e think Stiles some He's similar abilities is Jimmy. I think he executes this offense really well as far as the keep game and the boots and the play action, the ball handling, he does not have a lead elite throwing arm. Processes it fast he makes Ayers met. Ryan is the one guy that probably Kyle's had. They can throw the ball deep down the field that I have to go through. You know, every quarterback he's had But I mean, you know, everybody again watch to have a verdict on Jimmy. Uh, they're doing their due diligence If they can find somebody better, and they will do that, whether you're, you know, sign somebody trade for somebody draft somebody what to do with Jimmy's contract. It's a complicated thing, but Um, Jimmy's got a place somewhere in the league, and I would not be shocked. I mean, say, if I'm a betting man to say, I don't know, I don't know. I'm not going to say it's 100%. He's coming back. Very, very few guys on the roster. I would say that about this probably a handful of them. I would say that about and I would put Jimmy in that category as well. But I'm not going to say It's 90% is not coming back or anything, because Okay, who? Who was going to be the quarterback who's gonna replace him with what's that gonna cost? Sam. Donald never plays anymore. I can't see him play. He's got a bad shoulder. What's wrong with that guy, so a lot of different factors here But, you know, you know, Max entitled to his opinion, and he does this year's little bit different for him. He's not around him as much, but he does. Talked to a lot of people. He doesn't come up with these opinions unfounded Lee so he knows what he's talking about. Right There you go. Number two on the list for your foreplay. This is interesting. The Eagles lose. To the Giants 27 17. We all know about the NFC least. And he was going on a radio show and they were playing a cut coming into it, And he was not happy here is the head coach of the Eagles. Doing his a weekly radio show. Do you blame the most for the Eagles? 10 Point Loss. The Giants 72% coaching head coach of the Eagles, Doug Peterson. Hi, dog. Good morning, ASBO. Thanks for the lead, and I appreciate that.

They've got that leadership ability and that willingness to be accountable and even at a young age Ah, warnings to keep other guys accountable. Is it something that you can teach or bring out or is that something that is purely natural and you have to recruit it? Great question. I think it's both. I think you have these guys that are natural leaders. But I think every day we talk about what leading looks like We do a latest deal with our seniors and in our leadership Council what's a week? And what does that look like? You know what leadership looked like the right leadership. But there are guys like Bronte's it just naturally gifted at it. And, um He's the kind of guy you won't let me sew. Bill. What does leadership look like? What kind of conversations do you have about that? What does it look like? Yeah.

You're not, uh Put the team ahead of yourself so and of course it starts with me. You know, so I've got to do that.

Vikings locked up at twenty eight a piece in front of a frenetic crowd in New Orleans but before we do a quick refresher on the rules at that time still true sudden death back in those days so first score wins the game we pick it up with the coin toss and referee Pete Morelli this is ed this is sales you make the call again the one in the opening coin toss they go for heads again and lose so the states are going to get the ball to start overtime in the NFC championship game this place is buzzing save fans feel like and for good reason in his state going here long while has its seat out there becoming writes a lab here in overtime twenty eight twenty eight Jones right footed the ball wind drive it's going to be here Thomas at the goal line five ten left side fifteen apps are there for about thirty thirty they broke through the as seen in the autumn down thank you back at the twenty at the fifty yard line just pick this took it home and often through it and it is in order that's a big loss center Griffin can't go which document the starting right cornerback he is really hot he took his elbow sleeve off and throw it at this moment and threw it towards the sideline about a good fifteen yard website and it appears to be a lower extremity hi Bob Pierre Thomas stepping up for Courtney Roby who was injured returning the kick earlier that since he had one for nineteen yards during the regular season and what a huge return right there short of the forty yard line same thing good starting position at their own thirty nine going left or right or something Blosser said Griffin it really is because they have used him to match up outside with Marcus Colston all day long and now they don't have a guy that they can put out there on one field has been clean inside he's going to have to move to the outside cornerback and Benny Sapp is in there now first in ten states the practice on the side formation handoff run straight up the middle to back the forty plus the forty about the forty one year non binary guard Williams making the stop Kevin Williams that is that the fans in the stands are kind of at that play call they're going but when I talked about starting over time is like start a two minute drive on a positive way to start off even though it's only a three yard gain now you have a second seventh got your whole playbook to mingle with the saints touchdown on the opening drive first pants in the second half trying to get one here in OC second down in seventh of forty to raise hand operated was right side not much they're good play by ray Edwards running right was Reggie bush brand which with the five five well you can hear the impatience of the same fans it be patient because even if the saints punt the ball away here they should in the Minnesota Vikings the third down and six coming up what do you look for here hi just saw Jeremy sake come into the game and he always comes in with a lot of enthusiasm but they've got amid tight give them a little extra protection Thomas the D. backs breeze under seven third down and six it is owned forty three going left to right here in overtime tied at twenty eight degrees back to throw pretty good protection gap time standing looking toward the middle it's bought only flying on a plate full synthetic pushing off average by Alan Asher Allen making the stop Allen's really ticked off and really think and as you say James he thinks he has an office the best Morelli said I don't think however hold against Minnesota how to put the ball in Vikings territory sports added twenty eight were in overtime the NFC championship the ball for the states now is that the forty nine yard line wide side of the field to the left you know there's a lot of being an outlet that play that's like driving to the basket late in the fourth quarter you need a non call right there Reggie bush the lone setback breeze under center first and ten zone forty eight play fake respected throw rocks and got rid of this to the right one pressured by ray Edwards who knocked him down he threw up the right flank incomplete through his tight end Dave Thomas talk about guys being able to crank it up you know you can look up instantly and you can look at the stats that people haven't seen who the playmakers are ray Edwards last week three sacks against the Dallas Cowboys a knee injury early in the fourth quarter and his status is questionable no knee brace on this guy's playing lights out for guys who was very questionable coming into this August thirteenth twenty want to go in overtime second down and ten seats at their own forty eight the motion Thomas to the right recently sent a defect push play fake no run down the middle is got a minute leaping what we do we're gonna wait hold been running down the left hand it and dropped it and the Vikings four man pass rush it affords you the ability to then let your linebackers drop deep and been lever was pulled he thought it was run but when he found out it was passed he turned and sprinted directly towards Marcus Colston making brief stole the ball high and being able to get in there get a hand on it to knock the ball up in the states out of the huddle third down into the throne forty eight work for the gun here Thomas the breezes right can hinder soon wide to the right to receivers wide left let's come in respect to throw what the back foot down the middle is get a man there tenders and he set up a forty one yard line right close the first down yardage and Henderson was not touched down but when he didn't get up he kind of gave himself up if he rolls Ford here shortly gets a first down this is gonna be real close too close for comfort can you tell your receivers coach it's only going to get a little bit more than what you need yeah but he's working back to the a guy to just stop be on the market will grab stretch out the chains wow you sure about a bowling yep we're in overtime in New Orleans at the Superdome Anderson on the big me they bring in Zach Strief six seven three twenty fourth year out of northwestern when I got to move some bodies they bring him in and the Vikings counter by bring in Williams back in he may not be six seven but he weighs at least three for every bit living in a review the previous play I think they may be reviewing the spot this review continues here at the Superdome there's been a run of emotions in this building today west there has this is what a championship game is about two great teams both played to their strengths and coming down to the last play of the game I can speak freely from out under the hood thank you for on the field we'll see police said the boy three thirty four seconds that leaves New Orleans with the poor thing about one half way through ball in Pierre Thomas is this kind of your go to guy right here real physical doesn't hesitate to give him a free hand I don't know which Williams to run away from you I run away from Kevin Williams who's a little quicker and penetrate would I run away from Pat Williams who's bigger and blocked out the sun I got all of the for the world in there right now Brees fourth in a short one Williams's flakiness the center three six is now the time is did he get it he went airborne off a left guard he normally you don't go airborne out in the field Chad green way is there but the first visit to if you were born on the goal line to stick the ball over and then you move the ball down he have to come all the way back down to the ground with possessing the ball just like a wide receiver with green way and Madou Williams there right there to put a big look on in a great job hold on to the ball when you're in that area this is get my college degree now let's review every player twelve oh six to go what a ball game we've had big days today offensively Adrian Peterson with three touchdown runs drew Brees has thrown for three Minnesota Vikings cannot win this game they will look at the two red zone turnovers which takes at least six points off the scoreboard for potentially fourteen points unable to not get in the hands of some numbers really talk about the opportunities that have been lost by Minnesota second half first downs Minnesota eighteen of four yards total yards two eighty six the seventy four Minnesota the big number the four turnovers and and his feet Morelli after reviewing the play really the only thing the first instance the forty one of Minnesota it's so hard to determine by the eyes looking at a television screen where that ball is in in in length it's dramatically like a knees down early or something like that you can't reverse that call St still to go to the Super Bowl for the first time thank he's in trouble back to throw throws left side infield wait time is longer when we plug sidelined for side about the twenty seventh Thomas the intended receiver breeze with pressure Hey the backup and reload before you throw it well Jeremy Shockey for ride right into the lap of drew Brees because that ball behind maybe the server the sidelines to both but he's not gonna win that argument yeah your inside of your heart these dreams the young man's career long forty seven yard he's a little nervous right now John Carney who is the kicker early in the year is now the kicking consultant and I talked to Carney before the game instead of partly has to go out there what would you tell he he approaches the ball really fast he takes a fast approach you can just slow down and take a deep breath and not had a field goal attempt today Reggie bush in the backfield possibly coming right side bottled up beautifully defense by Minnesota loss on the play Alan Lieber Brinkley and greenway running that's what you want at this point you go wide like that the defense is attacking the line of scrimmage they're going to be able to bottle that playoff and now you have a loss really he's trying not to look at what's going on on the field they but he could sense from the crowd that that was a good first down play lots of five sets up a second in fifteen to thirty four currently in its second year out of Oklahoma took over in the final five games of the season was suspended earlier this season for drug violation eleven minutes ago second fifteen at the thirty four recently gun three receivers left restasis he's got time inside the twenty four and they can't Robert Meachem first just shy of a first down about three yards and that was against arguably the Vikings best cornerback Antoine Winfield now Winfield during the course of the year had a broken foot six three games right in the middle of the season when he came back at the starter Leslie Frazier defensive coordinator said you know if you're not up to where you need to be we're going to make you the nickel back and if I know that that's the guy that I go after this call is down to twenty two yard line in a time out called by Minnesota let's check in on the sidelines upmarket today near the Vikings sideline there did appear on your despondent they really thought that the ball game was one at the end of regulation on the press five interception just took all the air out of this ball club they also thought they had a fourth down stop and forced the saints went for it and right now but you guys both went gold pretty much just looking.

"The fallout continues to just wash over us over which was the stunning pic I think I we can all agree over the weekend of the draft the Packers trading back into the first round to get quarterback Jordan love with the twenty sixth overall pick fifteen years to the day to the day since the move the Packers made when they drafted Aaron Rodgers twenty fourth overall when they had hall of fame quarterback Brett farb still playing at a very high level so a lot of this is generated a ton of interest and an article in the athletic Bob McGinn basically lays out one of the reasons he believes that this move was made was that first year head coach Matt low floor feels like he's already sort of had enough of Aaron Rodgers which I thought was a very very interesting flax are among the things that are in this article public niceties aside my senses metal floor fresh from a terrific thirteen and three baptismal season tremendous terabyte which is always had enough of Aaron Rodgers act and wanted to change the narrative with first round talent on the roster the Packers would gain leverage with their imperial quarterback and is passive aggressive style if the Packers do indeed want to become a running team next season they surely wouldn't want Rodgers rocking the boat and becoming even more difficult to coach there's a lot in that right there and we should say begin covered the Packers for thirty eight years but boy he is just laying out right there if you read that article in that paragraph but after one year Madla floor is ready to flex all over Aaron Rodgers it is it got it this is gonna be sound weird to say from the former offensive lineman but is it weird that the most offensive thing in that quote I thought saw was that if the Packers want to become a running team next year yeah that's also allied with the hall of fame passing quarterback what do you do I mean I don't care I mean we only got a pick up AJ Dillon RB Aaron Jones aged yellow Jamal Williams probably be the odd man out there if you if you know once we get to go viral articles but maybe maybe the I've been output do they go to that running game I one thing I have heard band is point Packer fan after Packer fan saying kind of justifying it all saying there has it what what were you saying earlier has been a lot of top wide receiver picks on Super Bowl teams anyway yeah at like everyone's going to spend that because the conversation the other day was the number of first round round pick wide receivers that respective hall of fame quarterbacks have thrown a touchdown passers of thrown to an error Rogers just how woefully low on the list with one on their last year's Mercedes Lewis in that was a first round pick for the Jaguars and a tight end who listen and people have pointed out that Aaron Rodgers had plenty of great receivers on a team that have come in the second round effects every pretty much every great receiver Aaron Rodgers had since you got to Green Bay came in the second round of the NFL draft and I guess that's the point is we can sit and quibble and kind of move the target from one place to another like the Packers have a future hall of Famer playing quarterback for them they just signed to a pretty good deal you want to draft his replacement all right I guess at some point we can all kind of understand the thought process behind that but to act like alright then in punting on bringing in a skill position player and no disrespect AJ Dillon but you're not what we're talking about in Iraq to brought bringing a wide receiver or just a pass catching option for Aaron Rodgers in a talent rich top portion of this draft seems like malpractice I agree all of this is time for straight talk brought to you by straight talk wireless in that first round thing is sort of which that just means that some teams drafted the right receiver in the first right because it can be a fifty fifty shot right in need with the Peyton manning threw two hundred ninety three that's because the drive to Dallas Clark and they also drafted Marvin Harrison and that was the right call I mean Ben Roethlisberger ton of his touchdown passes went to a six round guy you may have heard of amid Tonio brown's drew Brees second round guy Mike Thomas catches a long touchdown passes Marcus Colston pick two fifty two in the Reggie bush strap a Reggie was the second overall pick Marcus Colton out of Hofstra I believe was the was the two hundred fifty second a seventh round pick any caught a ton of drew Brees passes so the idea that just taking a receiver in the first round is gonna make it work is irrelevant the idea of passing on taking any wide receiver to your point you're you're is the bigger so I have a dream that yeah and so then you get to the point of this article which is the idea that all right at the center of this and this is very you know it just feels very Seth wicker sham ask of the beginning of all the seeds of discord that we saw in New England which has Tom Brady at temple right now but which you know got us all the thinking and these were the things that south when it inside here you'll have to reported on it and got the feeling it this we should point out again is one person's feel of the situation right now it is for some what is covered the Packers for a long time we expect this is an informed decision but it's eight eight it is an interesting opinion if there is any sort of a lady salt let me just play devil's advocate by the way I'm just doing it because I because I'm on your guys I'll head Satan I think they they screw this thing up but let me present New Orleans Saints hall of fame quarterback offense that is relying on a wide receiver wasn't a first rounder not first round talent there wide receiver he said the quarterback's been to one Super Bowl and Roger's been to one Super Bowl mean Anna so lot of people say well look and but the saints have been knocking on the door and right there and save for a few kind of weird played three years in a row could have been there again but but that's what some Packers are doing stable you know you sit there and complain that you know that because our account well look at New Orleans we have a hall of fame quarterback they've been digested they've been the same on the Superbowl there Rogers and drew Brees because that's we're talking about here I know they made the the NFC title game I sure I know they were thirteen and three but the goal is to win a Super Bowl right if you're a Packer fan go go look at the museum there and then there were actually championship before Super Bowl that Green Bay one that that's the goal there and I we I think we all believe wide receivers hi your wide receivers are more wide receivers could have helped them help them a little more get over the top a little more help for Roger yeah I think we get lost in just kind of putting a big stamp on all these things right like you don't need a first round wide receivers here or you don't need this bear it's what is your team appeared in need now correct and we all could see what the Packers appeared to need now can you name the second best receiving in terms of catches last year for the project because of yesterday's out was all right but that's not it but my point is lot of people have to think what was it okay and then the other receivers Devin Funchess yeah you know guy who's now on his third team had a one year deal with the colts asked yeah well and and so the other part of this is this is another team that we could have done that with was the New Orleans Saints and Michael Thomas and wide gap between your want your one right Seaver yeah and I catch is there and this is the difference in all this is when we look at New Orleans or even look because I think you can make a lot of the same moves after Kyle Shanahan will kind of look the other way because you've got the burden of proof and right now if you're going to pick Aaron Rodgers versus napa floor in the way that this article wants to the thing that meant before and this is not of any fault of his own right now metal floors beginning his tenure and all this but what we see over and over again last year none of these other rookie head coaches got to start with a hall of Famer so your deck is stacked a little bit different in there needs to be some recognition of that this is not metal floors fault but he does not have the burden of proof for the receipts to come out and I'm not even saying he's doing this but I'm saying if your going to try you in any way shape or form frame this is Aaron Rodgers versus metal floor mat floors enough to lift you up in these situations with lesser talent no one is going to believe you right now right that's the point it Lou quickly the states they did draft a wide receiver in the first round twenty fourteen Brandin cooks and that you know he has some good years anymore but they do they swim in those waters the Packers just haven't and again it doesn't have to be a first round has to be a drafting a wide receiver but I'm with you junior the biggest part of this is that Matt will floor feels that if an article that emboldened to feel like he can I might do I mean you had a good season don't get me wrong but you had a good season because that guy was there I guess that's one of the differences when when I make the comparison in New Orleans I mean Sean Payton and drew Brees have been on the same page and they've been close and they've been working together it seems like in year two if you're believing some of these reports that there's friction already with the young head coach and a guy who's walking into the hall of fame it's interesting what is interesting not everybody thinks that Green Bay had a bad draft yeah there is one of our own I think that that error Rogers got help maybe not at the skill positions we got help and that was our own markets spears on NFL live saying the Packers we think generating this draft this is not a.
