"Was available. Made it easier for brady to define the open guy. Infrequently was antonio brown. This time you might have to throw a guy who's tightly covered. And that would be day evans against ramsey even if it's ramsey covering them but that just hasn't been how the rams of operated so far this year yeah that's that's the encouraging part but when i look at for example what marshon lattimore usually does to mike evans and jalen ramsey did to mike evans last year. I don't think that he's a guy who's gonna beat jalen ramsey if they decide to stick ramsey on him which might be an easier call now. That brown isn't playing or if brown isn't playing sorry brown might play but seems unlikely. So i i don't know makes me a little nervous about evans. He's he's he can get locked down by good corners. God obviously everybody's gonna start right but you know okay. So you say. Start mike evans. So you wouldn't they start markey's brown over mike evans. No which quarterback you like better in this game stafford same okay staff so stafford or dak prescott that so i currently have dak ahead of stafford one of the guys i was going to look at was dak going into the game against philadelphia and i wonder if this is just a game where the cowboys could maybe have a little more successful running like they did last week. If that happens dax numbers could suffer for now woodstock. Do you like any running backs in this. Rams bucks game not really anderson would be a flex if he plays but he'd be the best one for net would be a low end flex npr. Because i think he's i think he's just their best guy no matter what the downer distance at this point..
"marshon lattimore" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"The market tends to over adjust in certain circumstances. And i think they've done matt here. I love the saints last week. Everything just went their way was there. It was not the packers day You know they have some injuries on the defensive side of the ball especially marshon lattimore. They're gonna miss him in the secondary. The panthers this look the headline was under a field goal. Which is where. I make it right around two. And but i said last week jameis winston you wanna back him. As a dog is a high their quarterback anyone to fade him as a favourite. He's seven fourteen one against the spread as a favourite Ceo making a couple key mistakes Against the carolina zone looks and this is just an overreaction to what we saw last week the saints look spectacular if you go back historically teams that covered by four touchdowns are right around forty percent against the spread the next week to twelve and one in week two when that happens so this is just a classic you know sell high on the saints after they looked like you know the leagues best team. Last week. I think it's fair to say if you covered by four touchdowns you might be. You might be decent. You might've firepower the jags who i think. It's fair to say biggest embarrassment week. One denver who you know i mean. They're not the sexiest team but they have a lot of talent. I know judy got hurt. But like that game yet. This is ugly at and a lotta time we to end up with a bunch of dogs on my card so not surprised but i. I like the jags here. Catching six look headline here. Two and a half. Obviously the jiang's get embarrassed. You had you know the rocco's come out and look good but i think that was more of an indictment on the giants. Even the on the giants offense players were saying look. We're gonna start slow. We've had injuries heard that from golladay. So that said more about the giants were the broncos are and i like this broncos defense trevor did not look good binding metric but it was his first first career. Start you look back. Historically number one draft picks who start week one are now one seven in one straight off. They excuse me oh seven one straight up one in seven against the spread. That's a fantastic greg it. That's a good. Nah end now week to their six in one against the spread so the market tends to say they're high on these number one draft picks. They struggle in their first game. Understand we sell and then you know..

"No marshon lattimore for the saints. Kevin crawley though which was interesting. Oh really i just assumed. He was out He most likely not going to play. I guess he was just running around out there but the fact that they said as multiple weeks and he's already out on the practice field is a really good thing. They're beat up in the secondary. Kevin crawley cornerback. He's out pj. Williams defensive back missed practice on wednesday. Didn't see the thursday report. Marcus davenport is also i. I don't know how they had such a good performance against the packers But they're a little beat up so i don't know if that helps your dj robbie anderson outlooks. I was going to start the running backs in this game. We'll come back to tony jones in a second but are there any sign with the fringy guys here. Let's talk about james and start with him. Starters janus I think it depends on your team. Clearly you know so like rothlisberger better. I like borough better. I would start him. James over cousins. I'd start him over jabber lawrence you know so some guys that were probably drafted ahead of him you know. He's he's in that teens. Range high teen and mark was calloway. Margot's calloway starter set. I'm put them in a number three range you know. So if you start through receivers. I go back then like i'm starting him. I started over golladay last night in one league. I'm debating its people. excuse me calloway. Versus jacoby myers. So he's not a slam dunk stark. But the fact that he was on the field as much as he was and James throwing twenty past stems game that they you know this game. I think we'll be more competitive Not that the panthers or better than the packers but You know like you said the defensive will beat up so i think I think calloway has a better performance. To what extent. I don't know but i hope it's going because otherwise gonna drop like i had somebody asks me Today friend of mine Shy drop marcus. Calloway for rhonda more. Because i'm never gonna start calloway on my team you know so. I'm not there yet by any stretch. But you starting to get questions like that okay. Would you start marquis. Calloway or marquis. Gatling calloway still okay. Which saints tied would you prefer. And is he a start and they are by the way calling john johnson quote baby megatonne at his his nickname. Apparently neither of them are starts but both of them are certainly should be on your radar. You know so if you if you have a tight ends a roster spot to play with pickup either child or or johnson. I think johnson might have more upside Especially if his role in the red zone going to be like that. But you know we'll see you know trotman led the team targets on a on a game. Where is like you said. three times. Jared cook caught a touchdown both games against the panthers last week or last year. So i don't know if that matters to anybody but let's keep that streak going here. Darnold start mccaffrey. And break down the panthers wide receivers this week. These more as a starter. Npr borderline guy and non..
"marshon lattimore" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Defense let alone got talent and like you guys though when you can get after the quarterback with just four it is a huge advantage. Just like the super bowl with the box against mahomes. It's one extra guy the background of mess with and disguise and when you have talented guys like that man those windows seeing real tight and then the front getting close to you and your double check in them. I think dr. But i'm not worried. They're still going to be very good. And josh allen still going to be very good they were this close to really having complete control of that football game. He missed a few throws. They trump the few rows and then they had a fourth down conversion that they miss. That really changed the game. Is tom take ballot. Check out of the conversation. Tom on the best coaching football. Oh that is a good one there. Tomlin is without a doubt the best motivator in football. That's what i'll say for sure. I don't know if i'm gonna give me edge over sean. Payton or andy reid quite as right in that class like he's in the next class is debatable. That's all i'd say there's ballot check and then there's about four or five of the coaches below them where you know if you said it was tom or billy said it was ed he read or sean pay that go. Yeah i get it. They're they're all also and you'd want to be your head coach. So sean payton's an interesting one because you hear all these guys. They have the quarterback whisper. It was adam gays. It's matt rule and carolina. But when you consider what sean payton has done what he did with drew brees. He found tony roma what he's done with diesel mail and now he's jameis winston is he the guy i is. He the guy. You won't go junior quarterback. He is the guy i mean. I know he likes zack. Milton this year like me. Like i know some people down there that he was saying like. How do the same thing diamonds. They're like rogers. Mahomes zach was west. Not forget he. He was gonna pick patrick. Mahomes the next pick when the chiefs traded up. I mean that's well documented. They were laying in the weeds and get a draft patch. Bombed that eleven. Jump that because they know it and they ended up. Drafting marshon lattimore. But yes i would say. He is. The best quarterback whisper game planner hand. Josh mcdaniels shanahan and the best game players football and like yours a smart thing. He did early on. He wasn't gonna let jameis. Winston messed the game. He was really conservative. It's almost like he was gonna prove the point like hey we know you need you doing magic tricks that flips and super crat to win a football game here in new orleans. We're good enough to do with the old fashioned way. And i think he got into the game and a nice like fashioned didn't put too much on his shoulders and then he got relaxed and they started to open up the field. James played really good. But yeah sean abe is amazing. One of the best offense of minds we've ever seen a football. You mentioned earlier Watching film with you. How much money i would pay to watch film with you. I mean let's come. I wish we could. I know. I wish it'd be good. That's really would motivates me to watch. Film is the leg you know. Bus narratives things. People are saying where i go. That's not true. I just watch that. And i know football and that's wrong account. That's where i like to do it. And i do think there's time dr love to sit there and watch like guys like you where i could go. Look we're saying this but this is what's realistically happening and you know. Sometimes there's a disconnect between the media and what's actually happening and everything chris. We've talked about mack jones. We've talked about zack. wilson. We've talked about trevor lawrence but we have not talked about the biggest debut that we had in the nfl and that was drew brees and credible head of lettuce. Now you have watched countless hours of tape. You break down all the quarterbacks. Where was that hiding. And what was it like in person really get in trouble man. I don't know what the breezes new there you've been around for a while. Well first off. I enjoyed my weekend with brees altogether because we were tampa over the opener. Then of course you know sunday night with the rams chicago awesome guy. It's awesome to be in a room of the guy that you. I can really talk football and quarterback stuff and listen. I mean i'm like the rest of the world we got done with debris game show on thursday night and like i text family members. Hey how did the show look. And i look at my phone and also it's like all my friends social media that's all anybody talking about the game about drew. Brees hair. what he's there. I don't care. I'm not gonna judge office. He's been really good to me. And i know nothing else really good guy so good for him in screw. Everybody else is what i said. It looked great but a general terms. Doesn't that piss you off since football giving great announces all anyone's talking about on social media it's like not even hearing you just don't yeah exactly right man. I wonder what people thought of like our breakdown of the pre game show and it was just a hair hair hair hair hair hair. Drew is cool customer man and he doesn't seem to like lincoln the pressure or anything and hey he's not the first expl- player to do that so exam we've seen some other guys add some hair on their head last thing your boy shot and has a problem on his hands. Garoppolo look really good. He wants to get land in there. I think but he really really good. Yeah i know this is. This is something. I talked about a lot in the summer with florio because there a super bowl team period right you know i mean what are you gonna do. Bench him when you're ten and one You're gonna bench him if you go to the just rennert your the nfc championship game at the super bowl. Yes it is an issue trae land. I get it. He's got talent He does but you know. Jimmy garoppolo is a good quarterback and he's got a great supporting players around him and of course shanahan's is good as it gets as far as creative game planning. Yeah i think my heart-to-heart i'm like you. I think he really wanted lands to be the guy before the season started for the reasons were talking about the land was so raw in the preseason games i think he knew he just couldn't throw them out there yet. Lance wasn't ready and it would compromise the team and put them in some tough spots and he's gotta go with jimmy g. right now would your dad one of the people who texted you about breezes air and now even always football. I can't even get to ask about his grandkids by. It's.

"But speaking of the saints so the saints are coming into carolina this week. Coming off a five touchdown performance by jameis winston. I think he only through for like one hundred. Eighty five yards though forty eight yards five touchdowns less than one hundred and fifty completed. Fourteen passes in james that ever. I mean over a third of his completions for touchdowns play. I think i think I think that's what you'd like to see. Yeah you definitely like to see that Let's just start off real quick with the injury report for them so they're dealing with a lot of right now. I don't think you can do their injury report quickly. Yes alexander hasn't practiced all week. Marcus davenport doesn't appear like he's going to be ready to play. Thomas is already out already know that he's also fun fact he's also been placed on the covert report even though he's on pup as well so while all of meal. So he's double out for this game here Marshon lattimore is hurt. Yep he brought her signing his hundred million dollar contract. How convenient yeah heater legitimately hurt his hand the same day. He signed a one hundred million dollars extension. It is funny. That like they announced. Like a marcus. Lattimore in the saints have agreed to this huge contracts. Like we're playing a game like thirty minutes ago. Our politico sheeting on the sideline. I know agent but like in my head like the. Gm is down there. They're talking between series like going over the final numbers. They're also missing. Eric mccoy center so they picked up a guy off of another team. Practice squad. I think it was the bears so that tells me that. They're preparing to not have mccoy. Yeah like it could be. I mean he might be able to play. Might not but they're they're making preparations if as if he's not going to play sex to be then real unfortunate. Well i'm not gonna talk too much trash. Because if i do they'll come in and they'll beat us like thirty one two three like they did. They do tend. They do tend to beat us every time we come on here and talk shit on them so yeah. They're their entire offense of coaching staff. Mina sean payton is on the cove list. One of their players is on it. I mean it's just all the worst possible shit that could happen to a team is happening to them at one time. Unless you're the cowboys yeah That said as real quick. I wanna put in perspective like who's all missing and it's pretty much all defensive players other than eric mccoy but it's their defensive end like their number three defensive end. They're starting weakside linebacker. And they're starting court their best corner and one of the main safeties because a c. j. garner johnson's didn't practice today. Yeah so imagine us. Having to play without brian burns. Germain carter just on burruss dante jackson. Yeah and yeah like it would be bad. And then i guess our third defenseman would be like morgan fox or yeah. Mark paintings bliss. Say markey's hanes. Yeah imagine playing without those guys. And that's what the saints are doing. Hypothetically doing hypothetically yes friday. The friday into report has not come out as of the recording of this podcast. So pretty cool if we had that information though. Yeah maybe sound like john..
"marshon lattimore" Discussed on Establish The Run
"View. They can rebound against the lions this week. Well sean payton like put on like a a masterclass in game planning and manufacturing offense but you know what i mean the problems with the green bay offense like they they were they were long. It seemed like aaron rodgers. the. I've been driving around listening to you like sports radio at times. Embarrassing to admit but still. It's it's funny to listen to what the people have to say in the national narrative is that hey aaron rodgers got the main bun now. You know he's got this new girlfriend she's you know earthy is discovered inner self and you know now. Football is is kind of you know third or fourth on his list of priorities. I don't know if there's any truth that probably not. But i mean it's it's kind of interesting to talk about. The the packers do have some issues on their offense of ryan. David bahktiar is getting Beginning season on reserve pup They are starting some rookies up there and But i don't know. I i don't know what got an aaron rodgers on an. I expected him to have success. Marshon lattimore did a great job. The pass rush did a great job. I my guess is that it was a fluke. They do get the lion's on monday night in week two. There's a narrative out there. Also that aaron rodgers hates the packers so much that he's going to not give his all this year then go you know to the broncos or i don't know the panthers and try to win the super bowl next year just stick it to the packers. I don't think that's true but it's out there. La rams got this one wrong man. I thought that sony michelle would play would have not a big role but a decent role for the rams. It turned out darryl henderson. Forty nine snaps sony michelle three snaps jake funk zero so got i had so much henderson after the acres injury when people were afraid to take then. I got scared when they signed michelle but with this role is gonna ball out tyler. Though was the role we expected. I mean this was maybe the most impressive usage of the week from eighth ninth tenth round. Pick tyler fifty. Two out of fifty two snaps. Twenty six routes on twenty seven matthew stafford dropbox eighteen those snaps slaughter wide six targets for twenty three percent share. I mean absolute pure sex from tyler. He knew he tweeted about that today. A little bit. What you see out of the rams and do you think this split between henderson. Michelle is gonna continue. I mean every down back there. A hundred well. I think it was completely logical to expect the rams to use sony michelle before the fourth quarter after. They traded what amounted to a fourth round. Pick for him late in training camp. i mean that's logical reasoning and the fact that that didn't happen would Was in should have been a surprise to everyone. I don't think it'll it'll stick. I think that maybe sunni michelle is still trying to get comfortable in the offense and that will come over the ensuing couple of weeks and probably sooner rather than later. I don't think that the rams trust daryl henderson to hold up physically so but we can't use sony michelle until that happens. Tangibly tyler higby has a chance to be a top five fantasy tight end in this role and i kind of expect them to be. I mean he is. He's a baller man he he's really really good and when he's featured like he was against the bears He's going to have some really big weeks. Minnesota vikings. Oh one more thing on the rams van. Jefferson actually ran. More routes than to sean jackson in this game just a little note there on that minnesota vikings i one thing. I noticed that they went three wide. Receiver taught in like the fault. Part of the fallout from the smith. Injury was well. What are we going to do now like. We don't really have two viable tight. And if you wanna play a lot of twelve and so they use tyler conklin a ton and they use the other titans a little bit with three hundred. Zero is really their base k j osborne. Eighty one percents of the snaps. Eighteen percent target share for k j. osborne. I don't think that sustainable but feeling got his. Jefferson was pretty close to a big game. Although the but results weren't there in a box scoring caja osborne played. Well also what do you think about minnesota going forward. Would you add caja osborne in some deep performance. Yes in deeper formats I i don't think there's going to be enough targets for him behind ceiling adjusted jefferson in tyler. Conklin in dalvand cook for him to have these kinds of weeks on a regular basis. But a if something happens to dealing or jackson jefferson. Then i think osborne could be illegitimate fantasy option The ages had a big week. One regarding julio jones but they're really took it on the chin with adam ceiling who can still play. It's just when they get down in the red zone. It's like he. So locked onto adam and i mean i've bet on atom feeling season-long bad on until and under touchdowns which is probably just totally dusted already n- orleans saints. I mean what. A performance and people are handing-over marquez. Calloway only ten percent targets here which is concerning. He did run. Twenty routes twenty four genus drawbacks. Gyro alexander rhetoric out there. Whatever whatever. I mean james though five touchdowns then have a lot of yards but five touchdown passes what you see out of the saints. Yeah this was like you know. The ultimate sean. Payton game alvin kamara..
"marshon lattimore" Discussed on Stacking The Box, an NFL Podcast
"Considering how bad rogers was he threw his first Red zone interception for the first time since week six twenty nineteen so you know the public's can be all over new orleans the i think let's down a little bit. That game was probably close to the most against the jets jameis winston. This is something to consider has not had a lot of success against carolina over the course of his career. You might say well you know it's different teams. But he's played in this division for a long time and the most amount of interceptions he's out over the course career in ten games. Fourteen picks jameis. Winston has come against carolina. Most of those come in charlotte so for whatever reason i it's just not a good fit not good juju coming into that up I like carolina to play better to be a little bit more consistent on the offense inside of the ball against the saints. And they're going to be riding high after that big win against the packers. I think this is a good opportunity to go ahead and take carolina. What makes her boring podcast to agree all the time. But i actually do think like david. I'm yamada's good. Good defensive tackle. He's suspended for the first six games of the year. And then you have marshon lattimore. Who is by far the best corner. Got one hundred million dollar contract on sunday. But he's out with them surgery he's week-to-week that hurts. Carolina can throw the ball if you look at their guys on the outside. Dj robbie anderson. That's a good tan them christian. Mccaffrey i thought was excellent against the jets. Play you're very very well. I get it. It's the jets. Okay there the vanderbilt of the nfl that being said i watched that game. And i thought donald actually played pretty..

"Last through thursday and into next weekend and then week three they've got atlanta and i would bet by then they're going to say okay we gotta let this guy play and they start building them into the offense more. What about the the packers. They lost thirty eight to three. I believe aaron rodgers scored one point. Aaron jones had five carries. Aj dylan at four. I mean just a devante. Atoms five catches for fifty six yards. I'm sure he saw a lot of marshon lattimore but yeah this was. This was alarming. What you guys think look like. Aaron rodgers is old and washed. Don't say that. I got a warning texts from adam today saying. Don't go on the podcast and say that aaron rodgers looks old. And it's gonna stink and i don't think that's what you're saying he don't wanna put words in your mouth. You exactly what i was saying. Oh yeah that's right. He's at how he looked. He looked old. He didn't look like himself. It was the hair. Look like a guy who was in. Total control of the offense like bad. There were a lot of interesting decisions that they made like going forward on fourth in short deepen their own territory later in the game i just i thought it was a little There's something really odd about the whole. The offensive line played so great. Everybody knows into jacksonville. We colts year. It's true he's actually. They will get straightened out in time for week. Two against comment moon completely washed. Yeah so listen so we're doing this. We're doing a livestream. Right now. On youtube youtube dot com slash fantasy football and we put up a question. Do you think what was the question. Do you still believe in rogers. Rogers washed up. Everybody keeps like almost everyone is saying washed. Which first of all is wrong. Because it's washed ought not washed on youtube. It's definitely it's one hundred percent watched. I i mean all right so right now. Would you rather have aaron rodgers or james winston. Now you're gonna take rogers rogers or I mean you're gonna take jalen hurts for sure. Joe borough.
"marshon lattimore" Discussed on The Sean Salisbury Show
"Don't think the texans lost the straight right as one. Nfl source said to me. He's is was the texans number one corner. He's not a number one corner on most teams. He's a number two for the saints with marshon lattimore. He's there number two corner and he's a talented guy. He's pretty sticky and coverage. He's four three nine he can run. He's got a lot of good experience and he makes a fair amount of plays but there were some demerits last year yet big suspension for performance. Enhancing that's major dang. Six games suspended for this game anyway. They kind of saw they can live without him and last year they left him home argument to blow up with the secondary coach anton land they got very heated to the point that their argument over coverage schemes really just took over that practice and they had to leave him home. They don't normally do that with player that they have to have. And they you know. He's that talented but there are a couple of things his contract. They got out of that. And as nicosia cereal i think give him a lot of credit. For is transparency is process oriented not only outcome oriented and that means getting draft capital which they need so to get a third round. Pick you basically by the pick you pay the seven million and you're still getting some cap relief and they don't really need that much of it but they did that and you get a conditional sick so they are starting to build where they have a chance to restock the roster with young players on cheaper contracts and that's part of you know it is what it is. It's a rebuilt. So how do you rebuild you do things like this and i don't think it's the first move i read so i i don't think it's the last one they'll make showing you think about other guys. They have on this roster. There's other people that can be candidates for this. You can look at the cunningham's and learn johnson brandin cooks. You can have some guys but you can't have everybody and to have giant contracts on the team that went forward. Twelve just doesn't make sense so you're starting to see it by bid the overhaul more and more and now they're at thirty two new players on the roster and one day after they trade bradley roby. They've got a corner in town. They're going to work them out. We'll see how he does. Drake kirk patrick. Former bengals rounder former cardinals had three picks last year fares zona. So yeah. they're gonna kick the tires on hammond some other guys in every week. They'll be tryouts and turn on the roster. They picked up a corner. That i think is good this week off the washington football team jimmy moral right. So they're starting they really. You could see what they felt about their corner situation with their actions. Speak really loudly even tampa. We'll have players in every week that they're working out just because just in case we come back. I'm going to ask you what pisses you off the most about the houston texans. And i'm sarah. I wanna know the pitchy another person. I don't care what they're doing off the field. I want to know with this organization players. What pisses you off the most. It's in your.

"Stream get your tv together at direct tv dot com compatible device required. Content varies by package. All right we can make this fast. Just nfc south by in tampa. But i think there's a second playoff team in this division real and saints. Aren't you you. You caught the james. I see that look in your eye bill. That's janus. I i actually fleiss. What's interesting about the nfc south to me. Is i think you can make a case for each team right. Francesa was on this pod last week and made this whole saints case the saints over unders nine. And he's like that's ridiculous. They all must be at the super bowl last year. Their quarterback couldn't throw deep pass. So they're gonna have a quarterback that connections threw a deep pass like you can't tell me there in eight nineteen next year. That's crazy And it's sean payton the infrastructure. They have some blue chipper. So i get it like yeah. Could they go ten and seven. Would it be shocked. Atlanta goo fits that classic sleeper profile of terrible. You know fourth quarter luck last year. They had some injuries. They got a new coach Kyle pits all. Thanks so i could see that. And then carolina who is twelve to one that when that visually have the worst odds. But carolina's over i think is like seven after eight. They have good guys man like like they have a couple like studs and then if you think darnold he's better than bridgewater. They were in games for a while. The matt rule thing. I don't know we out of those three ten and seven. I'm just i'm presenting the cases mean it has like any of them. No i think the saints have the chance of making the playoffs. The parliament of saints is depth. Really i mean. They cannot lose anyone and they've already lost a people for the perception season. No michael thomas. As much as i love marquis calloway who alluded to That's very very thin. Group still Obviously very good offensive line and they'll have some other guide. The saint the rule at the saints. Is it some other dude. They've picked up the street. Who's got ten catches virgin guards and then on the other side about this this defense. I think we've been kind of taking for granted for a while. Is being really good over the last three or four years under dennis allen who still defensive coordinator but Henriksen is gone. They're hoping painting turner. They drafted can step marcus. Davenport looks fantastic. opposite cam jordan but david on your motto is a sneaky loss to suspension first few games of the season and then in the secondary. It's not a hundred percent clear to me who's playing cornerback. Opposite marshon lattimore again. Another loss ginormous jenkins tight jackrabbit. You i think officially changed his name. But in the books to jack rabbit. Jenkin notre cinco. This is what they had like. Yes all those years where we were like. Oh the saints. The cap is unreal. Put it on credit card. Well the bill came due and guys had to leave and you're still good team with a lot of really good players. Many mentioned rayo davis is amazing. But marcus williams is really good but when you start letting that depths walk suddenly you become you be. You're just becomes kind of fragile. So i think they have high upside especially winless anything like he did in the preseason. I just think that upside can get knocked down pretty quickly with injuries. Would you think. Danny so i i like the the most. I think it's the most logical and obvious so bill. You texted me this awhile ago. It's like there's always a weird team that makes playoff is is there. A weird is is our world where the panthers are the weird team that makes so that. That's why i brought it up. Because i think this could be the division that weird team. We're going to ruin three playoff teams west. Then the weird team has to be one of these. Nfc south teams the vikings. I guess it'd be weird. I think it'd be really really weird of to. Nfc teams made the playoffs. I be staggering bizarre to me. It's possible wash. we'd have dallas. And and i just don't think i don't think houses a playoff team. I don't see it but the giants at the eagles their out so we'd have to be dow's washington. I think it's more realistic. That it's one of these. Nfc south gains. But yeah the carolina thing. They were five eleven last year but it didn't didn't totally feel like a five eleven team to me. I felt like they were in games. They had some good showings against good teams They have a couple of really good players on both sides. And i do. I thought they were. Well coached the games. I watch things. Well coach i think like overachievers. Almost there it's most likely they're year away from being a competitor a contender. But i look at like their defense is very young and they've got some guys that could really make jump like brian. Burns was a favorite of mine coming out of the draft. He's looking really good so far he could have this he could. He could have a superstar season this season. When there's the support of the year kind of sleeper buzz with them And then like derrick brown. One of their top picks from last year. He's exciting player. I don't know there's just. They have a lot of young exciting players. Jeremy chan jc horn. Dante jackson if they if they can get it to come together. The defense could be to could take a jump. And i think that there's enough talent in his panthers offense especially that sam darnold can if even if he's just like neutral even if he's just average lee right there yet average that he is to good offense and so i don't believe it. I mean league. Average for sam darnold would be a mammoth fazakerley. He's been it's possible I love the schema. Loved the skill players. Do not love that offensive. Line in that removes consider for me other than like taylor. The entire left side line is an issue on the other side of the front seven. Actually we like Till snow their defensive coordinator. I think a really job but a lot of holes in that secondary. So it's it's they're interesting place because they're like a rebuilding team in many ways and they're very young But i think there is some pressure to compete now and also pressure. This is one of the teams. Where as you're watching the other quarterbacks tear it up in the preseason this the teams where the fan base does not feel great about that. And i think oh i dude yeah i mean imagine if you're authors fan i mean. Jc horn looks. He looked really good in the preseason when he did play play. He's super sticky super aggressive. Press man corner but lake. Justin feels was there. Mac does are there you know. So that's tough. And even how about this 'certain was there. They read to take it. The wrong guy right did took horn ahead of 'certain and everybody is like beck is an absolute all time you know could be a stud rookie right. Lacombe in for pros and all that stuff One thing with the nfc south. I forgot to mention they. Put the afc. The nfc says sure see get the jets and then you have all those nfc's.
"marshon lattimore" Discussed on Get Up!
"Play on monday night and it seems to have had an impact. We don't know exactly what went into the decision but there's no question that the performance he had in this second game was apart of it. Look this is a guy that has been in their system for more than a year now he knows the offense question of course is always going to be with james ken the iron out the turnovers. We won't know that until we see the real game start but obviously the saint of achieve some level of confidence that he can do that. And it's a real credit to him are see. This is a guy who went from being pushed out and seemingly in tampa bay went played back up in new orleans and now he gets his time. Your prayers have been answered. Artsy what do you think. I'm just emotional right. You know it's been a long hard road. I just remember when we were tampa. We went down there and we ate ws. And and then there was like the fight. Thing with like mike evans and marshon lattimore. And you know a touchdown in the play offs and meeting plan. I think this is a good thing. And the reason the reason it's good is because i think it's the best thing for the new orleans saints thought. What we saw against jacksonville was the best thing for making. Now push the ball down the football down. The football field sean. Payton can now run the offense as he's always running quick timing passing but now you add the big play in the play action game and tastes him. He'll gets to go back to doing the things that he does. So well which is special teams playing h back playing tight in being the wildcat quarterback. This is the best case. Scenario for the new orleans. Saints and i believe without michael thomas for whatever stretch they have to be. This gives them the best chance to win with the defense that we all know is going to be top notch. I'm excited to see what james winston is the starting quarterback for the saints. I'm also excited to see that. Sean payton made the right decision and the best decision for this team all right. You mentioned the best chance to win. But dan you mentioned if they can cut down on the turnovers so nico do you think that sean payton can make jameis winston into this quarterback yes explosive as we've already seen but can cut down on those turnovers to lead this saints really having titled chances. Yeah well he's gonna have to sean. Payton won't put up with throwing thirty touchdowns and thirty picks so I think that he's gonna coach him up and put them in the right situations. Get the ball out of his hand. Quickly look monday night. I was shocked. I was watching that game. I was like wow. Wow was that a heck of a throw. Then do another one. I said whoa like this dude is bombs over here. Just them down the field. And that's something that we haven't seen with the saints. We know that that drew was amazing and controlling. That offense and putting the ball needs the be but he could never really push it down the field. That wasn't something that was in his game. So when i was seeing that from the saints and said okay this is sean payton really wants to do. He wants to be able to air it out a little bit but then also duck and get the ball down the field smart in effectively. So i think sean payton is gonna make sure that those interceptions are not an issue because if they do start to creep up. That's going to be a problem for this team. James is going to have to take care of the football. That's number one as the quarterback. Take care of the ball. A lot of this is about the capability though to do things that they haven't seen our research department earlier this week at a stack. Both of the touchdown passes he threw monday. Night traveled at least forty yards in the air. And the saints have had to such touchdown passes total over the past two regular.

"I don't know how do you go into the season with this receiver group. Like i guess you just bank on thomas coming back and then thomas comes back and stays healthy and then returns to form because we haven't seen that in two years now because he didn't really he was banged up last year. He was good when he played. But i dunno just becomes a little dicey. I think the one thing i will say is that i like adam trout troutman i think because they traded might also like it was a desperation. I to tighten number one. And i watched i watched as targets to and he had one route that ran on. I might have been dion jones. It was a falcons linebacker. But it was as good as i've seen from a big tight end like that so i think he has something to him. I don't know if it's gonna take another year or two before. He finally breaks out. But i think he's a piece. They thought they could build the passing game around if they had time like. If they had a michael thomas delina on this year. But they're not going to have that. And now i'm wondering what this offense looks like because you made the argument that this benefits this might benefit james more. But i wonder if sean payton just looks like we're not going to have a passing game we have to commit. We have to go wholesale found on game. Yeah i i honestly i like. I'm very steadfastly in favor of james winston right. I don't think tastes hills real. Nfl quarterback but honestly if you made that argument i might buy it like the way to run this off my concern about i guess. My suspicion of that is that tears things hill. Fumbles a lot or like we as much grief as we give. James for the turnovers deservedly hill had the third most fumbles in the nfl last year and he played four games in quarterback. So that's optimal and you got to think that number's going to go up and also i don't. I think the defense is gonna obvious is going to be challenged so it's almost like just go yo and go for the explosive plays and see what happens but again. I feel a lot better about that argument if wide receiver group isn't what it was or isn't what it is like you can see. The thing is more thomas injury you could see a universe in which this offense could actually better than they were last year. Right like silla. Very good offenses lines. So one of the best offensive lines in the nfl. Obviously cameras incredible. And you know you could be hoping that either smoother calorie would break out trautmann again. Being in like number. Three action is like a very enticing. But you take michael thomas out the equation said this on our one of our shows the other day. He's not the best wide receiver in the nfl but he is by far the most important like in any offense because without him. It's just metal ole like if you can be that. He is like if they trade. For james watt seventy yards every week. It's james washington the number one relief zico from being the steelers for two the saints number. One i think he would have to be just by default if before you did any research for this pod and someone quizzed you on like named four saints receivers. How many would you be able to name besides thomas. Drake weinstein's out right. Little jordan humphries on their well come on little george. Yeah but yeah. I mean calloway maybe if i was really like on my game But that's it. It's like you just woke up like an hour ago. You're not calloway wanna throw out like a crazy idea. So let's say they don't trade for dame's washington what about like zakar like go all in on the tight ends. I'm just spitballing here. I'm just throwing stuff against the wall. I'm just a girl that chart asking it to something. Because he wants out. I feel like mickey loomis would be down to do it. No matter what the prices the he's just like a wheeler dealer works. Because i do think they're kind of building this offense where they can have a lot of tight ends on the field. I think that was the plan. Just because of didn't have options at receiver. And i think that gives sean payton enough flexibility where he can like mix and match and go hurry up and just catch based defenses on the field and spread things out. I think he's someone that would wanna do that. So i think that would make more sense actually than a. james washington who might redundant with smith early on the roster. Yeah yes. I hurts his voice and learns skill set. Michael thomas the like you know in terms of like just foyer boys even the chains moving. It makes sense another big piece of saints news. Today patrons retired Which normally would not be a massive piece of news for. I mean i mean. That's that's that's a wrong way to put it. What i want to say is it's not the equivalent of losing michael thomas by any means but because of the depth on the defensive side of the ball it is massively impactful the cap israel folks. And if you don't believe it look at the saints twenty twenty roster and then look at the saints 2021 roster just across the board there are some issues holes deaf concerns and working back to front without robinson now opposite marshon lattimore whose performances kind of dipped off. You're looking at either. Prince amukamara always feel like i've sayings name wrong Ken crawley's there. The guy who drafted paulson deyb. Oh who out of oregon right. Who didn't play last year was stanford. Am i confusing. Pac twelve teams. Okay so didn't play last year. Cj garnered the johnson's law. But i mean it's it's so we're talking about them trading for a tight end or a wide receiver. I think they also need a veteran. Cornerback like the death is just wolf or maybe a second year. Cornerback from jacksonville. Go alon jay henderson be available. I think he fits what they've traded for in the past when they've traded for this position a- corner who specializes man coverage. I don't know c. J. anderson seems to be on the outs and jacksonville seems to be available. I don't know if he would make michael. Thomas available metrics. I think he's pretty untradable based on his contract. Yes it's with the saints. Yeah cap situation. But i think you could make a deal. Where if urban meyer seems to be a guy who decides who is his guide. Who's not his guy in. If henderson is already on the outside. I don't know maybe he's available. But i will say this and this was before the robinson retirement. I had written down in my notes. I i wasn't so concerned about the cornerback. That because they do play a ton of safeties like forget about big nickel that three series on the field. They play four safeties at a time. Two hundred one snaps last year with four safeties and only two quarterbacks. And i think they can hold up garnered johnson. I think is one of the best lot defenders in the league. When you watch him against chris godwin he was the guy that guard chris. God i think chris dodd went only had like four catches against malcolm jenkins is a little more tricky because he is getting up there in age. And how long can he run with tight ends. I don't know he still look decent last year. But if malcolm jacobs can play in hold up in the slot. I think cornerback becomes less of an issue especially if they can swing a trade for a player that can start. Yeah henderson yeah. I think that's fair. I'm also curious to see if there's any changes on the defense mentioned last actually The departure of aaron glenn. Who was i mean..

"Marshon lattimore at thirteen overall years cardinals. See if you can do this again. Rettig assad already. I think you're cheating at four hundred. Obviously the eagles took derek barnett overall. This is applicable to the cowboys in our current moment. By the way the colts took him a league hooker. Who is not officially a member of the cowboys but it does seem like that is going to happen much sooner rather than later. It's a matter of kobe protocols that he's getting through himself with the team being in california. Obviously things are different. They're so be another cut for that One pick out to that baltimore took marlon humphrey and then jonathan allen went seventeen overall to the washington football team to joke that you wanted to make. Was that at twenty eight. Eleven picks later the dallas coverage took top charlton. I wasn't gonna meet that to thank you for doing it for I think it's kinda weird. We think of washington as a joke and they are in many ways. They are a joke. A franchisor have at least but They made some good picks. Do like when it comes drafts. They're not like a total joke. I mean obviously doing asking his really bad but like jonathan. Al really pick for them like he. A lot of people would have the eels to take him when he was on the board. I remember that he was kinda like falling that year due to like shoulder like concern something about you degenerative shoulder or something but He's played really well part of that. Strong washington defensive line and got rewarded with a four year. Seventy two million dollar contracts. I just thought. I'm interesting Maybe i don't we have on our all. Nfc's team was he the other defensive. Tackle next to fletcher cox No went with leonard. Williams was on choice but it could have been him. Yeah well he got. If he didn't get the all star nod he got the new contracts. I think ultimately jonathan. I'm came out ahead. Anything else on washington before we move on The one other extension. I'm sorry how. Could i feel a little bit. Destroy disregard gear. The logan thomas one. Just nice fine for them. I remember one logan. Thomas was a quarterback and on the arizona cardinals and everyone thought like oh man bruce. Arians was your favorite coach. Rj Might be able to turn over thomas into something in alas he was not nor was anybody and He took some time university tied in and worked out firm. So good for him. If i could argue. I don't think he is. I would go gutter. But i think you could argue. I mean just based on last year last year he had a better year than dallas qatar. And he's arguably the Division and they got them free so good for them so two things here before we move onto the new york giants number one. People love to regard. Bruce arians as some sort of quarterback whisperer actually wanted to give a big shoutout to geneva renta's one of the best nfl reporters in the biz. I saw she had to take on the qb podcast. She talked about that. Term is thrown out like so ridiculously ally. We call people quarterback spurs when. They work with good quarterbacks. You know what i mean like. That's and my people love. Bruce arians fixed. Quarterbacks arians worked with ben roethlisberger first-round pick peyton manning before that number one overall draft pick andrew luck number one overall draft. Pick carson palmer heisman trophy winner number. One overall draft pick jameis winston heisman trophy winner number one overall draft pick. Tom brady obviously the go. But like bruce. Arians drafted logan thomas. Who was so bad at quarterback but he didn't even end up playing the position professionally. Nfl but speaking of players who were quarterbacks to start the charisma nfl member showers former safety for the dallas cowboys but he warned when he wore number twenty eight when he Flipped from quarterback to safety and the reason that's applicable is in the exact moment that we are talking recording me. Hooker has walked out onto the practice field for the dallas cowboys. Oxnard wearing number twenty eight. So while it's not it's still like again at this exact moment issue in the jersey. I mean he's out there. I'm just looking at this tweet from john. Michaud to the letter. He's wearing number. Twenty eight so Just like he's making showers pratt. And i actually used to hate the real showers hogged twenty. It's such a great safety number. And he was never he just hogged it on the practice squad forever So thankfully me hooker can make a great again but anyway the giants Before we get into near discussion everybody had to biglou dot com. Ed valentine the main man over there had a exclusive. Sit down interview with new york. Giants head coach. Joe judge it is. It's also like fantastically put together I will also speak for belgium here like on the back end and we have to put articles together like ed made this pretty. I mean like it looks good and so he did an incredible job here with joe. Judge shot to add Would you sit down with doj for thirty minutes Sure i could this talk about how what. It is that The eagles didn't try to go out to win and help the six win. Giants make the playoffs. I could just spend some time doing that. Our favorite part of that interview with it. I mean i really found. Joe judge to be humble. Which is i mean. But we need edsa humble guy. So like ed's writing the kind of came through and reflect..

"That when the first one who brought this up made me really think about it but you know if you have all these bond on the roster players getting the vaccine which makes sense because they want to do everything they can potentially make the roster so they're not going to not get the vaccine or at least you would think a lot of them would not not get the vaccine Double negative there. And i just wonder how that's how the team percentage is going to fluctuate based on that. Because i love those players are probably going to get caught. And then if you're star players don't have a lot of the starters but a lot of the starting players and keep backups. Don't have it will. Then that's an impact that too. So that's kinda interesting the monitor. I don't know that we're really going to get like updated rates because they're of reported out now like these numbers. I don't know exactly even hauer. You're getting this. I guess it's documented but It'll be interesting to see also interested to see. I don't know how this has worked in cowboys. Kim so far. I'm an i'm we'll see how it goes an eagle scam but also like this thing about players being marked right like seeing like who is vaccinated not so on that note Charles robinson went in town that on the relaunched. Nfl podcast you pod to win the game and by the way I know you listen to that. Podcast charles denigrate job Obviously to get that pop going again and he just such a great job honoring dress paler every episode. It's it's one of the better. Nfl nationally covered podcast. There is So shout out to charles who does a great job. Cover the cowboys along with the entire. Nfl and he talked about friend. Who's unaware gio point. Biaggi how players are potentially going to where responds. i don't know if they're silicone wristbands or something With colors that know whether they're vaccinated unvaccinated and he mentioned like you know you'll be able to like during a game. You know. count if you really want rather than you can you. Can you know look through binoculars. Or whatever and count them all and you can deduce the percentage yourself and then we get a place of like what if team is saying like. We're you know like like big savings this week that alabama's really close to being one. Hundred percent vaccinated whatever select. What if a team said that. And then you count like twenty you know unvaccinated response or whatever you know what. I mean like And so now you've got like misreporting going on like that opens a really big can of worms And washington's at the center of it all unfortunately with this situation going on I did wanna bring up just because it's relevant here in case anybody forgot. What montas sweat about this Almost two months ago he was asked about the vaccine At this time. I'm reading an article from john comedy. Espn at the time ron rivera said that his players were approaching a fifty percent vaccination rates. This was a june night So that number has climbed technically since then but montana sweat said on the vaccine. I'm not a fan of it are probably won't get vaccinated until i get more facts and that stuff. I'm not a fan of it at all. Then he went on and said. I haven't caught cove yet so i don't see me treating kovic until i actually get covert It was one of those tweets in quotes. That people had a lot of fun with on twitter as you recall and so people feel different ways about this in. I mean i think i. It's possible that anything changes. But like i think if washington's this low now it all this time that's gone on since the vaccinations it stands to reason that like people have made up their minds on what they're gonna do and they've already decided they are not going to get the vaccine. It's like i. I don't see a big change happening between now and the start of the season. I don't know if you yeah. I hear that i mean maybe. Unless there's like a bad something in training camp and or players are actually unvaccinated. Players are going through these extra protocols and they're tired of it they have to go through. Obviously extra hoops at the unvaccinated players are actually the players. Don't have to go through so we'll see there the other things. I wanna talk about washington. We're actually the accessions that they gave out recently. Putting one to jonathan allen was kind of made me look back to the two thousand seventeen. Nfl draft there and the players that were taken the just to the defensive players. Even the loan. That were taken at a jonathan allen. You wanna read. Those there are day. I would switch the window myself but i'm afraid the audio cut out because that mike and peter does that you're talking about the two thousand seventeen. Nfl draft correct. Yeah yes the other names there I know why you're doing this. But all of the defensive players taken before jonathan al and At one overall cleveland took scared at three overall.

"marshon lattimore" Discussed on Big Blue View
"New york giants scheduled for twenty twenty one offseason how they improved how they might have regressed and then also pitching what we think is the best and worst case scenario for these specific teams in twenty twenty one. A better way to help you. Folks understand what to expect when the giants face them during the season today. We're going to get into the giants week. Four opponent the new orleans saints and this team looks a lot different after losing drew brees and some other notable players on their roster before we get to that though folks hit the subscribe button is a five star review and had to big blue dot com for more giants news and analysis. So chris we were just taking some time to look through this roster so we could properly assess this team before we started recording and we couldn't even early find any notable improvements from free agency specifically the only notable name that they signed was tanno capacity. Gno who defensive end out of villanova drafted a few years ago played for the chiefs and was a strong rotational player on that defense contributed highly important games. That was really the only notable name to come in as a step forward. We're going to get to some of the guys that they lost. But it's worth noting here. A big reason why. They weren't able to be aggressive in free agency and why they had to cut ties with a lot of recognizable. Names was because of how hamstrung their caps situation is. There's currently thirty three million dollars in dead cap money that is going towards guys. That aren't even on this team anymore. That includes emmanuel sanders. Your janoris jenkins and then about eleven million dollars that is supposed to be going towards Drew brees in the money that would have effectively been on the salary cap. So that salary cap situation really really hurt their ability to make some improvements through free agency. Yeah the the saints really kicked that economic hand as far down the road as they could trying to win one. More super bowl with drew brees. Let him go out on a high note and this year it finally catches up with them and between all of that's dead money of all those big contracts which you know right now aren't doing anything for them but holding them back and then the salary caps shrinking for twenty twenty one you put a perfectly they. They're just completely hamstrung when it comes to free agency and this is a team where if seemed year after year they would never be able to make any kind of a move and they would always find some way to massage maneuver their way through the salary cap. signed somebody you know. Some big name would wind up in new orleans but this year finally all caught up to them now. Maybe they go wild next year when the salary cap goes up again but for this year They really don't have much in the editions. Column as far as veterans. Go no and as you highlighted here. They were in such a strong effort to make a run with drew brees before his age caught up with him and it finally was starting to over the last few seasons in now. Drew brees is retired. Their quarterback situation is not necessarily solidified. We don't know if it's james winston. We don't know if it's tastes him hill. We don't even know if either guy is really a viable option. And if they're going to have success offensively but as you said because they were so hell bent on trying to get things in with drew brees which is the right strategy. Twenty twenty one is going to be a difficult year for them to establish some success because they have a lot of money going towards big name. Guys justifiably ryan ramczyk. Marcus williams michael. Thomas marshon lattimore. Those guys are getting a lot of money because they were brought in as young players. They now have to be paid. But they didn't have any room to pay anybody else to bring in noon free agency. So now is kind of like a a a transitional spot for the saints. We'll talk a little bit later about how we think that they're gonna turn out best case worst cases we always do but this is really a difficult situation as they didn't even really have that many draft picks to fill many of these needs and you saw them draft pete and turner in the first round. Which was one of the bigger head scratchers on day. One pete warner was a really really strong pick who slotted to start at that will backer spot paulsen deebo somebody. We talked up a lot as maybe a diamond in the rough who didn't play. During the twenty twenty season. So you're getting a good quality rotational corner and then possibly in book. I guess works his way into a competition for the backup spot or the third string spot. I mean that's the only the only other notable name. I can really point to chris from this draft class that maybe fills a need if in books. My starting quarterback or has to even take any snaps during the season. I'm pretty concerned. I be right there with you. If the saints. See ian book on the field. Either something has gone incredibly right with his development where he just plays at a level. We never really saw at notre dame or something has gone horribly wrong. With the other quarterbacks on the roster or their season has gone completely off the rails and they've they're running him out there to see what they got. Yeah exactly tha- that's the way i'm looking at it. Here is if in book is on the field. It's because something did not go. Well i some people like to say. Oh he's he's the same size as drew brees. Why can't he drew brees. The book is not drew brees and a player of in books. Physical stature and physical traits is not necessarily built to be successful in the nfl these days. There's a reason. Why teams are vying. For zack wilson types and patrick mahomes types. They're chasing guys. That fit a certain bill and i think in book really scares a lot of team so that was a bit of an odd pick. But i'm looking at the rest of these draft picks. I don't really know how many i can really say we're improvements because pain. Turner is a defensive end. He's going to be sitting behind cam. Jordan and marcus davenport so he might not even really get a ton of playing time in this upcoming coming. Twenty twenty one season paulsen deebo gonna mostly rotate because of their current decent quality corner situation with marshon land more than the other starting corner. Patrick robinson i do though really like that. That pete warner pick up because they need some help at linebacker and he was such an underrated player in this class. Yeah we talked about this during our draft. A pete warner is a guy. I really liked watching what. I really liked watching him play and he said he was an underrated player. Nobody was really talking about him but he was just all over the field play. With great energy. I think really underrated athleticism. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see him earn a starting job. Almost right away on the saints defense and you know for a team which for we'll say most of the last decade or so pretty much. All of the sean payton drew brees era was known for just being an incredible offense team but a team that had to have a great offense because they never really had much of a defense over the last couple seasons. They really have built a strong defense down there new orleans. Yeah they do have a really strong defensive unit and you almost start to wonder now here. Are we at a point where they're starting to age and are we. Are we curious as if this team is really built to be sustainable and long-term they do have some interesting names..
"marshon lattimore" Discussed on GSMC Fantasy Football Podcast
"All right and we're back you're on the gsm mc fantasy football podcast for the second segment of today's show. We are going to do a schedule. Outlook of the green bay packers and obviously the packers do have a lot of stuff going on to say the least with their quarterback. Aaron rodgers are an of course. He'll be doing his gulf event. The match on tuesday against tom brady. So that'll be interesting to watch but let's talk about football though now. I'm going to go through the schedule with the assumption that aaron rodgers is going to be the quarterback for the packers. So i will go through the schedule. As of aaron rodgers is the starter because i feel like that makes it more interesting. I don't know so. Let's start off the packer schedule and honestly it is a. It is a tough schedule. It this is a very tough schedule. They obviously were the number one seed last year. Thirteen and three. And of course tom brady rolls up to lambofield. And he beat aaron rodgers in his home ballpark his own stadium show Yeah was not very happy about that. But let's go through their schedule and talk about the favorable and unfavorable matchups on the schedule. So the packers start off the season in new orleans week. One four twenty five game on fox there will be no drew brees for this match up of course because he has is now retired. So some interesting to see who. The starting quarterback for the saints will be week one. I feel like it's going to be james. Went symbol have to wait and see so when i look at now. i'm going to start including defenses. more. I know i did say that I really haven't done a good job with that. But when you look at the saints Their offense depending on who the quarterback is i. I think you really. I probably sit the packers defense. Just because of alvin kamara and what he did to that defense last year especially on that big play. I mean the packers just absolutely cannot tackle. That was that was embarrassing But when you look at the offense. I think that you know the saints. Their defense that tends to struggle in the beginning of the year. So i would say that you know. Rogers does well here. Devante atoms does well here and actually davante adams did not play in the week. Three matchup now. That i just. I just remembered playing the week. Three matchup when these two teams met last year. So now you get devante adams most likely would be going up against marshon lattimore. I don't think it's really gonna matter. I think devante will have a good game here. I think aaron jones. He'll do okay here. i think we'll do. Okay look for guys lake allen lazard vow the scheduling to get involved as well allen. Lazard had a big game last year against the saints. He did really well here. You know and then of course. Let's see what obviously robert tanya and he's a guy you're gonna wanna start And you know. It's gonna be interesting to see the other guys mary rogers. Aj dylan see what they can do. But when you look at like the big four. I guess rogers you start here. Aaron jones. of course. You know Robert tanya will do. Well i think davante adams of course. I think this affair will match up for the packers offense. I think they do well. Here should be a good game Of course rogers does play an obviously you got the crowd in it Which is you know something. You gotta also factor because the saints did not have their crowd last year so now full capacity. You know it's gonna it's gonna be a little bit. It's going to be tough. It's gonna be tough. But i think that you know like i said the saints. Their defense tends to struggle early on in the season. So i would say you probably. You're probably fine if you have. You know the big four one of the big four then moving onto week chew. The packers have their first home game to monday night. Football game against the detroit lions. I think it's a very favorable matchup for the packers. I think could start really basically whoever you want This week obviously you know other than the big well in terms of the big four. But then you looking at other guys like lazard and and dylan and rogers and even funchess You know e- kinda out to see how those guys do early on if you wanna pick. I'm pretty sure a lot of those guys. They're going to be on the waiver. Wire so gonna have to kinda you know. See how they do early on in the year before you decide to pick them up but yeah i think aaron jones does well here he had. I believe you had like forty five points in the week. Two matchup last year devante atoms. You know he's going to have a great game here. Rogers you know they're all gonna do well here. So as a very fair will match for the packers have you guys on the packers. You know the big four. You're going to do well here. And then moving onto week number three the packers go to santa clara to take on the forty niners. And you know i i. This is gonna be a tough game zooming very tough game. It's on sunday night. Football the forty niners are going to be at full strength again. Obviously the packers went in there last year and they destroyed the forty niners. But you gotta understand. The forty niners did not have their players. They didn't you know the a lot of their players. Garoppolo wasn't there no kiddle. No deebo samuel producer no i u No moster their defense was missing so many people. Now you got the forty hundreds of full strength going up against the packers. And i think this is an unfavorable matchup particularly in the running game. I i think the forty niners are gonna minimized running game. I feel like i mean. Of course you're going to start. Rogers you're gonna start devante. But i don't think they're going to have good games necessarily on the so. I would say this is an unfavorable matchup for the packers here. The forty niners have the packers number when there are full strength so i yeah on farewell match up indefinitely. Do not start the packers defense. This week the lions defense. You could probably do that but against the forty niners. Do not start the packers defense. Because i think this is going to be a really tough game for the packers. I mean i could be wrong. But i don't really like their chances in this game and i really don't like the the i i really don't fancy purposes either so moving..
"marshon lattimore" Discussed on GSMC Football Podcast
"He says he's had tennis career. Just off. turnovers alone marcus. Williams is winning that in that department. you could argue that marcus. Williams is more of the true playmaker. But i think a lot of more plays a tougher position. He was the defensive rookie year in two thousand seventeen. He's made the pro bowl in each of his three years after that. And i mean he's as good as has come at the corner position a true. I'm gonna go guard your number one wide receiver in a division where there's plenty of number. There's there's just been plenty of number one wide receiver talent to go up against. He's really stood his ground and stood his own in new orleans But he is dealing with some off the field issues. That is another kind of separate thing that the saints have to kind of parse through here. It doesn't seem like there's any lingering effects to his play but we really again. We don't know we don't know he's going to. We'll see him at training camp. It's it seems like a like a non issue. Maybe one mistake type deal. But he was arrested. Back in march in cleveland on suspicion of possessing a stolen gun The cleveland police confirmed. Nfl dot com and he was subsequently charged with a four fourth degree felony of of receiving stolen firearm on friday according to court records. So there's a bit of red flag there because you you just. I mean who knows. Maybe the saints can keep all three of armstead williams light of more and they can just keep doing the same salary cap gymnastics that they've been doing but again that's just going to be very tough in the past happy Vision of the nfc south you you. You're going to need a lockdown corner but you also want to have your left tackle squirrel away. You don't you don't want to have that as your weakness heading into a season you really just don't with a new quarterback jameis winston and with how much they really want to run the ball with alvin kamara and take that pressure off of jameis winston. But you also don't want to give up on marcus williams who's been just as reliable as they come know off. The field issues has created more turnovers lattimore. And it's just again one of the best safety in the nfl. He's proven so that's where this kind of dilemma comes in for new orleans. So they'll they'll have a little more clarity now that they signed ram check to that big deal. So they're going to look at the books they'll they're probably gonna sign at least one more of those guys this summer and then i think another the rest of those decisions will be made early in the season as to The new contract extensions extensions for the other guys. Because again you're in this past happy division in the nfc south you do not want to go out there with without a number one corner and i think you really need i think mark marshon lattimore takes the priority here to be honest and you can kind of hope for some of those younger offensive line prospect that they have in their system waiting in the wings to step up and hope they can can play the nfl but again. It's a big risk. But i think corner is one of the more more important positions in the league and when you already signed up one of your tackles you could move ramczyk to left tackle where he's probably a little less comfortable and then hope for those other guys stepping in at right tackle but i think if you if you had to choose one of those three guys gotta go with marshon lattimore just because of the importance of the position and we've seen how good he can play when he's at his best but at the same time the off the field issues are not worth ignoring just because you want to invest all this money into someone that could have some issues that plague your team off field and you really have to do due diligence in that aspect of everything so we will see how this goes Got some other news to get to the ncaa. They have finally made a long overdue decision to allow student. Athletes to profit off their name. Their image and their likeness. I mean this is some very ground breaking news in the collegiate sports world and really i just think it shines light on how long. Ncaa has been robbing these student athletes for decades and decades and breaking in billions and billions of dollars. I mean the the the march madness tournament the tv deals. They are just literally printing money coach football season just all the fans that go to those games. The pageantry. How many people watch those on. Tv to ginormous tv deals that they have that sport. I mean seriously just raking in money. And you've got you still have sports like the college world series in baseball and softball. That have pretty big audiences and all the other collegiate sports athletes. That should have been able to do this for a long time. Now and i think is just some huge news. I really liked the direction that the college sports world is going because again this is long overdue. So i'm gonna get to all of that and what that means for the future of college football in the next segment before that we've got a quick commercial break once again. You're listening to the gmc football podcast presented by.

Which college produces the best NFL talent?
"A special edition of N._F._l.. Live on deck today at the N._F._l.. Celebrates one hundred season just six weeks away however we are just five weeks away in college. Football Opens It one hundred fiftieth the anniversary so today welcome N._F._l.. You were combining the two worlds to answer age-old question what college produces the best n._F._l.. Talent however I'm Wendy net sand Hutus here you know what's better to be on this panel our expert notice icy expert telling me when Lewis Minute of her panter on the list not on the House for back the quarterback guru he and his brother in a lot of N._F._l.. Games James A lot and Ryan Clark. You see the L. L._S._U.. They are ills college football. L. Is Jonathan Vilma bike. He will join US shortly. He happened to win a National Championship and Oh by the way a super bowl as well coming up on N._F._l.. Live will break down position by position which college produces the best quarterback Oklahoma has the number one overall pick the last two years we have the top ten plays all the N._F._l.. Superstars when they were in college and answering big question which school produces the best all time N._F._l.. Talent we had to ask the players themselves to kick things off. We're the first pick quarterback Oklahoma Viva say Oklahoma Alabama Clemson because proven it is one atop factory the Ohio state highest in Alabama. 'cause I never lost beat out. You really can't understand it into your inside. Sadness programming is all about the you for N._F._l.. Because of Georgia in every aspect but I think L._S._U.. CRESA environment of gray competition and guys is trying to feed off of IT University of Pittsburgh. You Got Dorset. Dan Marina you got Larry. Fitzgerald was not a me show. It's about having everybody involved in working for the Sandal clumps in would cushman he's been doing. He's making people believe everything is possible for House is the best our stop it. Stop stuff well. Let's start shall we with the most players from each college currently in the N._F._l.. Alabama leads the way with V with sixty five players players followed by Ohio state in second place with fifty eight so we're going to debate these schools I in terms of who is best at producing N._F._l.. Challenge here's a tale of the tape on Alabama at Ohio state success since the two thousand draft folks tools I have had thirty one first round picks the most of any school while the Buckeyes have thirteen more total picks in the last twenty drafts but Bama's players have been slightly more successful in the league producing three more pro bowlers than Ohio St Louis Rick. Let's start with with the crimson tide. They're starting eleven if you will offense and defense current N._F._l.. Talent there's any question that these are both very impressive lineups that if Alabama can roll these teams out there right now now. I think they'd win a few games without a doubt. If you look at the offense aside outside of the ball the first thing that jumps out of these starting eleven are the two wide receivers look Julio. Jones is one of the finest athletes in the N._F._l.. For guardless of position he's in the news right now because he's about to get a new contract extension and he's really one of the he's one of the transcendent players at the position that this game the scene Amari Cooper the same way. When Amari came out of college? I remember doing his tape in thinking point honestly as far as catching one pet and run wide receiver. I hadn't seen one as good as him as him. In a long long time on the defensive side look they have fine players throughout the eleven here really that when you get to the secondary and you guys like Eddie Jackson Landon Collins I mean these guys are disband tastic players on the front dont`a hightower our multiple time superbowl winner. These are great great players right here. Make our way to Columbus shower of the to Ohio state you go to the offense side of the football. Look the first thing that jumps out without a doubt as Ezekiel Elliott because if he's not the best running back in the N._F._l.. He would be considered a top three running back in the N._F._l.. Wide Receiver Michael Thomas Really someone who was unheralded coming out of college. He's a tremendous tremendous. Pro will probably be the highest paid wide receiver in the N._F._l.. In short time then move over to the defensive side of the ball this this is where really this football team really kind of jumps off the board starting up Front Joey Bosa Cam Hayward those are two of the best defense alignment in the N._F._l.. Right now and then when you look down there at the Secondary Malcolm Dyson Dinkins Denzel Ward Marshon Lattimore doesn't let's get much better than that. All right Jonathan Vilma made his way again surly qualified to weigh in on this discussion. Look I mean there's a shortage of talent with either of these squads. It's almost ridiculous factory and a lot of ways both of these institutions but let the debate again a Ryan Clark. You can't pick L._S._U.. Just yet but when you look at this group what stands out L._S._U.'s better than both of these things we're gonNA get to that. We're supposed to be talking outlets. Let's be honest. There's amazing players. Neither one of them have a quarterback right before proven yet though little I mean why don't we always have to see something first before we can get you well Ray Richardson running back right you saw God compare that with you why time gentlemen we're GonNa play Nice Got Ninety minutes ago. You're the Glenn Difference from every other position that we're looking at okay fair enough now back to you Louis. It is a production results oriented industry. Is it not so it is fair to say seeing something. Does one believe they'll be success won't sure but I mean we're we'll see this is kind of like a combination of what they have done in college. What some of these guys have done in the pros in some of it's a little bit of projecting about what they're gonNA continue to do in the pros? That's how I'm going to expand it to that all right so at quarterback quarterback Dwayne Haskins I believe right now. There's no comparison as far as I don't care what A._J.. McCarron did it Alabama cows tape. Those Wayne has close exact Haskins is going to be a fine football player. What's going to happen to him? Really is going to be more predicated on what Washington redskins overall due to him then what he does to himself. I firmly believe that as far as these rousers overall look the wide receiver position Julio Jones Amari Cooper. Julio Jones's the standard if you go and look N._F._l.. For an offices and look in their scouting books books every team has a standard at every position that they put for scouts the suit for as far as whenever when their scouting people polio is going to be on that list for for many many teams he's about as good as it gets so skill positions at Alabama are awesome. The defensive players at Ohio State is what stands out for me as far as their front seven is concerned particularly their defensive line and their secondary Denzel Award Marshon Lattimore. You tell me a team that wouldn't take those two young men right now and startled. Let me ask you a specific question since you spend some time as an analyst watching these players at the collegiate level if you had to choose either of this group Alabama Ohio state who's players really got better or who took a bigger step forward than you anticipated when they got to the N._F._l.. Out To you to dance your last part no neither standout. They're pretty equal because watching these guys watching Jonathan Allen he played okay well Dante. I'll tell you knew who is going to be tremendous player defensive player C._J.. Moseley's same thing and then you go to the other side and you look at Joey Bosa Nick Bosa Darren like Malcolm Jenkins. I play with Malcolm Jenkins in in New Orleans knew he was going to be a study. He's Philistine but what is surprising how fast or House they defense is. I did not realize how fast defensive you think big ten you didn't big Brawley guys not so fast but these guys can move joey. Bosa also can move nick volks in Darren League. We know the Burner Malcolm J. Denzel War March. I mean that is a very very talented athletic fast fast defense. I thought I was going to jump in your rookie. I think that's a great question Wendy about as far as what teams teams have players that have gotten better pros. You look at Ohio state this look at their offense. In particular Michael. Thomas was a good wide receiver to hire Stayton. He's fantastic now. He's GonNa be highest paid wide receiver in the N._F._l.. Andrew Norwell most people wouldn't even know Andrew Norwell well what from Andrew Doorbell he right now just judge Moore Norwell can't open open some N._F._l.. Spectacular and even on the defensive side of the ball. I didn't think Marshon lattimore. I've liked Marshon Lattimore at Ohio state. I didn't love Marcet. He has taken his game to another level as well in the really own Alabama side you know how I feel about Alabama I feel nick and what he does and how he builds his program but really focus on their offense align that was just look okay and think about that question. Wendy Wendy asked how many players have gotten better how many have continued to improve Andre Smith may have his best days at Alabama. Dame's carpenter has really been good pro Brian Kelly the jury still out he could be a he's a good player. He's GonNa play already in Indianapolis D._J.. fluker was he ever ever really that guy that dominant guy no. He hasn't been Cam Robinson. Have you seen story so it's interesting because they're preventing people have been many people who've hit Alabama and said they get the best out of their players at Alabama. Maybe it's good discussion legal where people go by what teams there drafted so we look at Michael Thomas he falls into a place where he needs an accurate passer and he's one of the most accurate passers all the time also about the place you land in ashore and how they develop you ask Josh Rosen he absolutely he knows that all too well. I ten Hasselbeck. The whole point of this is to pick one of our producers here a little bit we talked. I'm going Alabama mainly change quarterbacks. Yeah I think looks great point about the offensive line at Alabama because so many of them when you look at them just in terms of body type you're like Oh my God look at those guys body type wise but like I don't know that some of those guys have come in and be like Oh and they got a whole lot better. We're obviously splitting hairs here on this ongoing Alabama Lewis Sorry Nick. Oh from a hustle change your mind or did you stick the way said one because I don't care if between Haskins hasn't played. I think he's I think he's in the saints. Stratosphere is A._J.. McCarron so I like that I liked it their offense of line one of the things that talked about how they develop those guys on the defense aside but they're fun four plus their secondary this going with them Ryan Clark you have to pick one while I was brought here for one reason in one reason only when the Knicks because everyone knew it my answers it would be and what Tim Hasselbeck has proven is. You don't need a quarterback. That's really he's GonNa be Ohio state in Alabama that don't have quarterbacks guess what we don't need a quarterback back and by the way you don't want our first off was good enough for Bill Belichick your boy to draft him as Tom Brady's heir-apparent draft. We thought they they went to L._S._U.. Because this guy has what they decided to we throwing the ball all around the field Andrew Whitworth he's played a thousand years. There's a Guy Jerry go look at the Neil hundred may has like negative two percent body fat Michael Broncos out. There aren't key. We gotta wait on them but it's are are you at the back of position. That's all we got mad. I gotTa get here all even have to work conviction when you spoke scissors. I'm sorry I just so tim. I love your twenty. Two question your toughness Whoa West I've seen because as you know what fair enough he's at Alabama alum landon dare you wait into the circus that we've created. But what do you have to say about this. Whole debate ain't Ryan got some good good good stuff going on say? I wouldn't question his toughness at all. I don't know why you questioned Ryan toughness. I saw him not got a lot of Alabama's always number one no matter Corolla tyrod. Let me ask you a serious question. You know obviously nick. Sabin is a hall of Famer one of the best ever coach this game but specifically what does he do that has allowed such historic success at the university. Steve Alabama <hes> as a coach he speaks for as a coach. He represents his players as players coach. I would say he makes all this coach. All the players are on the him as a player as a father <hes> <hes> and as a as many tried to teach us they'd be a man and a great play all at one time you know so he does it all leading. Can you please tell the people why you are now better that you have trusted your career training with the guy from L._S._U.. Hey right you agreed trying to grow been gone on gone for years
