"Most of his sacks came up the middle. So that came against a one of them was against Matt Hennessy who again was being rotated in left with James Carpenter. And likewise, I, think one of the SAX was him splitting the difference between the Chris Stroman and Kayla mcgarry but regardless, three sacks from one player Raven Green had a sack. So they had four sacks on the game and honestly I this was not a Green Bay team that's known for their fierce pass rushing yet. Again, the of the Falcons sort of give gave up For, Saxon this game Tie Summers in their Smith both had six tackles in the game Darnall savage with five Adrian Amos with four and I think that you know some of the standout players in this game, you gotta go the Giro Alexander in he was covering Calvin Ridley for the majority of the game as we already mentioned. Ridley. Did nothing he was targeted five times in I would argue in though I'm GonNa. Get some hate about this but we have to talk honestly about this team I would argue there were several passes that were just off target where it wasn't necessarily really spoke in fact, the first pass of the game a of people say, oh, will release the caught that honestly Matt Ryan should have thrown that ball sooner more confidence in the fee does Ridley on that slugger route has an easy touchdown. And instead it's Ridley has to try to make a circus catch in in can't pull it in and I'll feel like that's a fair play to put on Ridley's shoulders and the rest of the game you know Alexander was really stuck to his hip up to your point earlier I do think his ankle injury may have factored into that so I don't want to beat up on really too much but. Alexander's a good corner and I think he showed that in this game. And in you saw that Ridley actually was spending a lot of time on the sidelines which I think played into the whole ankle thing because eliminate is the key is. Even Christian Blake was out there for the majority of. Towards the end of the game, obviously the Games nearing the end you're down, you know thirty, two sixteen. So it's not worth. You know having him read injuring, but he did end up coming back in later on so. JETER. It and it looked like they were trying to. SPLIT, his snaps with other guys is so it wasn't indication that you know he came into the game questionable as well he and Julio. So We'll see how he bounces back from this. I'm not worried about Ridley. Feel like this is one of those games where it was a perfect storm of things that happened Ryan being off the offensive line being off just the whole in the coaching on the offensive side of the ball being mostly terrible. So I don't want to put this too much on the players alone I feel like the conversation around the Falcons has to be about the entire organization. It's not just about players. It's not just about the quarterback or the wide receiver what they did or didn't do we also have to include guys like Dirk Koetter Raheem Morris Dan Quinn into the conversation of what happened in the game like us. Will do in the next half podcast. So on that note. Before we jump into what the Falcons defense did and what the packers offense did. Oh my God with the packers offense..

"I think you want anybody on the road, do you? Maybe that's just me. All right. Let's hear from Dan Quinn spoke earlier today. To the media. Ah, this should be good. Here's day. I'm talking about Raheem Morris taking responsibility for not accounting for the Seahawks passing game. I would say, I think you know he's a little bit looking in hindsight, knowing that been such an effective running team for so long. I think what he's referring to, you know, really coming in with the mob set, they gotta stop running. No matter what. And so when they threw it as well, You want to adjust quickly as you can got a, uh You know, playbook full complement of defense is what you choose to feature in a game. You know that kind of goes all train. Can't this for this this for this? You don't use the whole playbook in every game, So I think probably what he's getting into this. You know some additional books that they have passed. Okay, This goes back, though. Dan Toe. What the lead Now we're talking about No. Football is gonna have adjustments throughout the game that you're gonna have to make. It's by the way, it's not just that The Falcons didn't account for the passing game, okay? They also didn't account for Jamal Adams and never adjusted to that. So you never adjusted to Jamal Adams. You never adjusted to a quarterback completing 88% of his passes. This goes back to everything that I always say about Ban and this team. It's all a bunch of gobbledygook. You know all this goddess. I got us a two touchdown Los at home to start this season off with miss me with their 25 points. They were down 38 to 18 in the fourth quarter. Miss me with all that other stuff that happened. I don't give a damn about 450 passengers. Christ, you're down three touchdowns. You better hook it all over the field, and you got all those guys. You damn sure better be putting up stats. They've gotta put appoints. You better put up stats. But this is what it's all about. Well, you know, we just okay. But you never figured it out and we lost by two touchdowns on her home field open the year. And that's why folks are mad. Like Jeez, Come on, man. Just coach up. Here's the ad talking about being ready for the defence of line of Dallas. I think you haven't into Dallas. They've added some players, You know, obviously, you know, it's already a good group. You know Lawrence from a pass rusher, but adding Griffin and in Alden Smith, who really after a good long layoff, really came out strong and looked like he was really fit and ready to go. So let's say the challenges. You know the unique skill set of of all three of those guys. I was pleased to see the improvement. You know an offensive line, certainly in the protection side, But I think that probably goes along, you know, Take it a step further was, you know the one year development with Chris and with Caleb in all the playing time together all the practice time together. Their communication. Watch this done Look for this thing. So those are things that you just keep hoping to see improved, but those two are taking that year once a year to jump. All right. So two things about the offensive line One is we know that Jake Matthews has dinged up on banged up. I think he's going to play on Sunday, but he may be kind of dinged up. Banged up when it comes to all of that number two is I think you'll see Matt Hennessy in a little bit more at guard. I'm gonna be curious. The watch His snap count was about 16 snaps. I believe Out of 79 offensive plays that they ran. Let's see what his snap count is on Sunday. Uh, quickly here, let's get to damn talking about what he's learned by having Hayvenhurst on this team. Right. I had, uh, good inside or information just from his time in South Carolina, and it spoke to coast must champ about him and I was first impressions. How hard he's going Thought, man. This guy's totally going for it. Max it I thought The urgent player. What I probably didn't know was how fast he is. And so even from the time of Baltimore, there's you know we're doing our evaluation, part of the trade, a long touchdown run where you sell us be, but when you're around it every day, you feel how fast he is. So I would say that's One thing. Maybe I was pleased to see you wouldn't say I was like, surprise, and we could run well, but I think it was better than even I thought. Yeah, There's no doubt that He's got better speed and quickness. If you will, than what Austin that catch where he stretched out, Austin Hooper would never make that play. Would have never have made that play. Gotta use the more I think. I think he's a listen. Another guy this week we talked about Todd Gurley another guy this week without those linebackers. Here's a chance for him to get out in the middle of a field and make some plays for it. All right. Here's the and talking about getting more out of special teams, especially on returns. Yeah, it's a It's a difficult one. But you got good question. The kickoff return. Sometimes you get a chance, but sometimes you don't have him the ability to start at 25 kick that goes deep in the end zone. That's one. That's you know, certainly worth taking out 25 Noah's Faras. A touchback goes one that we think we can gain. Maybe some field position is if you're who has ability to drop the ball down. You know whether it's right at the goal line and cover if you can knock him back down inside the 20. Sorry. The proper term side goes. We do like Brandon's speed and quickness. He'd play slot receivers of those air. Good attributes for a cover. Turner Let me from wrong, Jarvis. You can fair catch a kick and taking it to 25 in today's NFL, right? That part of the rules. Yes, if you Yeah, If you think you if you're inside the 25, you can fair catch it And, you know, go to put 25. So So I mean, what difference does it make? If you so if you kick it, let's say to the two yard line. You can fair catch it at the two yard line again into 25. So where's there? An advantage. What? What? I understand what he is talking about. My thing is this You know, every yard that your return guy can get. Use, one less yard and first down that your offense has got to get And field position in the NFL does get to be a big thing, and, by the way, go look historically at field position and playoff teams. Seems that started the 30 yard line for playoff or sorry for field position tend to always be playoff teams. There is a correlation to your starting position and What the end result ends up being that was college, by the way, college dude that if 20 for you know, not not an NFL adjusting that's in college. That was the rule change. Okay, I knew was in college, but I want to know if I can visit the NFL so.

"Come on now. You know better than another. That's alright. Um, Speaking of Jake Matthews, let's hear from the Falcons left tackle and of what he had to say. Cor, scrimmage final scrimmaging the books yesterday afternoon. Where's Jake? Now? He's talking about playing next to Matt Hennessy I've noticed is he's grown so much now he's he's making calls, and he's more confident. And, um, that's been really impressive to see and he's got a ton of town. That's obvious. So, um just to continue to get more reps of them and, you know, build his confidence in the offense and what he's doing, I think is a really good player, so he's been very impressive Watch, bro and improved. This is a build here format. Hennessy. This is not this truthfully to me. Barring injury and I'm talking about separate of injury. Okay? I'm not saying that that somebody gets injured and then he you know, he goes from there. I'm talkingabout the fact of it. Barring injury. This is a learned year for Hennessey. He's not taking over for Alex back its center. I agreed to let I don't think there's a reason why you start him at left guard. No reason to throw him out there. I know Carpenter didn't have a good year last year, but at the same time You gotta let the veteran start No. No camp. No, You gotta let a guy who's a veteran. You can't run the risk of putting a guy like Hennessy out there that's barely had a chance to do much of anything. In an off season. No preseason games. Limited camp on Lee Kick Ass virtual, OT a CZ. You can't try them out there. I mean, with all due respect, it's not like he was the third pick in there. You know, this is not like he's the third pick of the draft. Okay? Not not like they drafted. You know, the next thumb didn't draft that guy. Okay? No, that dude in Indianapolis. We don't even have to say his name. Just say that food in Indianapolis and everybody knows who we're talking about. The guy that when you drafted in one of her fifth overall, he was already the best guard in the NFL. You had taken a snap. It was over the best guard in the NFL. My favorite thing about that guy is the story about one of the college football writers. Was walking over to a bunch of player personnel guys. For some NFL teams. It was like about six or eight player personnel guys. Jarvis for the NFL teams at the combine in Indianapolis. And won. The college football writers was walking over there. And it was on linemen day and they were laughing and kind of chuckled and stuff like death, and he was just kind of wondering what they were laughing and chuckling about. And they were all talking about. They put that boots tape on, and it was hilarious to watch him. Just motor through everybody. That he was so dominant on tape that they were just kind of laughing about how good this guy is just kind of laughing about how ridiculous his tape looked with how good he is. And here he is the best guard. So then so in a 6000 words, soliloquy. Didn't draft that guy. So you get him ready for next year because he's going to be your center. And if that's weight training, all the different things that go into it, But you get him ready. I don't expect to see him play that much. He doesn't need to play that much. Get him ready for next year. Maybe some blow out situations you put him in. You know, some low leverage things, but that's about it. All right. Here's Jake Nafis talking about what it will take for this offense to be great. We don't shoot ourselves in the foot are haven't necessary. Penalties and stuff were really good offense and hard to be. And I think we've already kind of said the emphasis of this. Like I said this week of staying on track and sticking to the plan, and when we do that, we have a lot of success. Well, listen, it starts with the offensive line first and foremost. If the offensive line isn't better than last year, it doesn't matter how many pieces they have around it. It won't matter. All the rest of those pieces won't be enough to overcome a bad offensive line, and that includes the running game as well. Do I think that Todd Gurley on his own can be more productive in the run game behind a battle offensive line. That Devon Paye Freeman? Yes. But that doesn't mean that they can have a successful running game if they can't block up front. And if they can't take pressure off, man we've talked about, you know, they gave up one of the highest rates of, you know, pressures in the NFL, Almost 40% of Matt snaps. Were under duress. Think about that almost 40% of the time that he drops back, he's under duress. It's tough to live life is a quarterback in that kind of role. So there's no question that talent wise on paper. Hey, on paper, no question. They could be a good offensive line and they have talent and certainly a great offense that good, great offense. But if they're not better on the offensive line because of health because of progression. You know, whatever you want to use whatever the reason is, If they're not better, they're it's gonna be a long year for this offense. Here's Jake Matthews, talking about dealing with no fans in the stands for the season, got to change the way you call everything and how you do things in the line makes it order and, you know, I don't know exactly how it's going to be this year. It's uh, definitely an interesting situation, but we just got to figure it out..

"Together. Tomorrow night at 11 Eastern, a Pacific joined the We need to talk crew as they catch up with Buck's head coach Bruce Arians and Navy head coach Kenny Amount to Lolo to break down the return of football on CBS Sports Network. Way Got one guy on the line right now is supposedly has a very interesting Atlanta falcons. Stat. Um, I reading this correctly depend that is correct. Let's goto bed in Clinton next up on CBS Sports Radio, Ben what you got for me, brother. I heard the most interesting chat today. I saw that the whole Austin of the land of 1000 are former number one draft pick. You got Matt Ryan, Todd Gurley, Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley 18 verse. And the whole office. Lana's will It is only one player that isn't and the only reason I know this and he's expected to start for them is because I'm a temple football. Not that's Matt Hennessy, who is slated to started them in the left guard spot. I believe he was a third round pick, but you are right. Ryan, first round pick girly Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley Hayvenhurst, Jake Matthews, Alex Mack. And then the right guard and right tackle Chris Lindstrom and Caleb McGary at right tackle that still insane and parking. There is well correct now. James Carpenter. Was he a first round pick? I think he was right. Yeah, So So maybe maybe you know what Maybe he ends up starting over Hennessy. The only reason why I think he's going to start because when we did our first and goal preview with Dave Archer for the land to Falcon's, he said he expected Matt Hennessey to be a starter. But you are right. Carpenter was a first round pick. Let me pull up the depth chart here on ESPN, which you know, you know, it doesn't. This is not the official depth chart. I guess on what looked like weak one carpenters currently the third string starting left guard, But with that being said, if he starts or not, that would be crazy if if he ended up doing so everyone was the first round pick, But you still have One guy, and then everyone else be a first round pick. It shows you they have potential. But Ben, as you know, with the Falcon means that you haven't been able to do it yet, and that you still need to do so. So that's an interesting one, though. I didn't even you know, I read something about that last week. I didn't give it much thought. But that is wild when you look at it. That's really crazy. It is. Think about that. Is it like they're gonna be good this year. Yeah, I don't think so. I think it's a big year for Matt Ryan, too. It's an awkward year because I think if they aren't good this year, all of a sudden, the Falcons are in a kind of Ely with the Giants. Phase where it's like, How many more years How many still productive? Yeah, No, he is here. I was two and we started having this conversation at the end, Not at all. But How many more years and you look at that team and you go. Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, You know they're Cotter likes to throw the football lot with Matt Ryan. I I just can't trust them. They're too inconsistent to me and their coach. They should have got rid of Dan Quint. I thought two years ago. It was a good defensive coach. But that's the reason why I don't trust another They can't score is that they have never developed a defence of identity under Quint, even when they went all the way to the Super Bowl. It still wasn't like bad injuries last year, but trustworthy my problem with Dan Quinn and I know people go. He's defensive minded coach. If your head coach of the football team in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl, go off to college, and you tell him You run that sucker chopping back passing multiple times, like stops ofyou. But yes, that that is part of it. Where you get defensive minded coaches, offensive minded coaches. They forget the other side of the ball. I need a coach. That even if you're going to be geared towards one siding, clutch moments, you still need to have control that team and Dan Quinn has never been able to recreate that magic from that Super Bowl season, has not been able to do so when they lost that Super Bowl in the next year. They're in Philadelphia with that offense. Nick Foles playing for the Eagles right down at the goal at the end of the game and got Nada Nada Nada Nada. Let's get to the closing, balancing the shot in style. Another.

"The Atlanta Falcons will do so with a former Falcons quarterback. Now he is their longtime color analysts on the radio network for Atlanta. And that is David Archer. David Hope all is. Well. Thanks for doing this. When we look at the Falcons, they made a big offseason acquisition getting Todd Gurley We don't know where the health is of Todd Gurley. What do you expect at a Todd Gurley coming over from l. A to Atlanta for this upcoming season? Well, be honest with you. I think we're expecting a lot of early and mainly in the Red zone. If you look at Todd Gurley's numbers, even with with so called quote unquote down near Around 900 yards rushing, still had 12 touchdowns. All 12 of those touchdowns came in the red Zone, and I think that Atlanta if they could find a way to run the football down close Help three up the talented weapons that Ryan has on the perimeter. Now, listen, you have a little bit more of a potent attack a little bit more looking a little bit more like what? You looked like a 16 when Avante Freeman and Tevin Coleman. We're carrying the ball down there close and created that problem in the run game. Atlanta has not had that over the last couple of seasons. I think that's where they expect Todd Gurley to make his main hey is down there in the red Zone. With the way that you probably have to manage his reps as a running back the rest of the running back room. Is there something that jumps out to you? Yeah, I think it's a good group. Really Do I think that when you look at Brian, Ill in the way, Brian Gillis Kamani together that Hawkins drafted a couple of years ago, Brian Handsome solid moments a year ago. Quadri Allyson. Kid at Pittsburgh rookie from a year ago. Uh, kind of woke himself. A little bit of a roll is a short yardage guy. £225 Goal line Guy, four touchdowns. Hopefully, you know, Smith can come back. He was injured in the game a year ago. I believe against the Rams in which he was trying to pick up a Blitzer, which he shouldn't be here should be doing, but he is an outstanding receiver out of the backfield. And a good change of pace back at the back, So they get to three young guys that I think you could lean on. And like you said, Take some of that. Load off. Assad, Girl. Let's get to the next down. And when we do so, we take a look at Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. The two big names in that organization. Do you still believe that this team could be a play off team once again with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones? I do, but it's you know, obviously, it's about you know your supporting cast and you do some things on the other side of the ball, and I'm sure there's a question you've got to worry about the defense's side the football, But there there's a little area in the offensive line. The left guard has been a little bit leaky, right guard's been a little bit leaky because of some injuries and things that they could shore up that into your part of the offensive line. Ryan's Like most classic quarterbacks climb in the pocket. They got to be able to give him that opportunity. Do so if you get into your pressure and accurate from problems, one game will help in that regard, but Yeah. Julio Jones, 16 seconds, 1300 yard seasons. Matt Ryan, nine consecutive 4000 yard seasons. I don't see the one those guys backing off. When you talk about that offensive line to follow up on that I'm a big fan of Matt Hennessy. Being a temple grad, really smart football player puts in a lot of work. Is he going to make an immediate impact in your number one? Yeah, There's always a question that he's certainly in the mix to be the starting guard. There's no question about that. I think that there's ah lot excitement around when he brings the table and and obviously the heir apparent, Alex Mack, probably its center. So Alex back in a little bit longer to still have a good football any But I need to put some guys around him that Khun taken, it could be in there and we had German Brown and James Carpenter guys that could not stay on the field. There was some solid moments from those two big veteran players, but they did not stay on the field and consistency. In the interior specialist that left guard spotted Kennedy ultimately will probably win that job and be the starter that guard let's get to the next down. All right, David Archer. When they flip the switch here and go to the other side of the ball defensively, it was an up and down year for the defense, but it seemed like they did finish in a better spot than what they did earlier on in the season. You could probably say that for the entire team with the Atlanta Falcons this division. Is loaded with offensive talent. You know what the Saints are. Now you have Tom Brady and the division with Tampa Bay, and I'll be curious to see what Teddy Bridgewater does with the Panthers. What's your read on the Falcons defense entering 2020 Well, it's an uncertain situation obviously went on God. Dante Fowler, Dad's pressure off the edge contact. McKinley realized what they thought they had when they drafted him a couple of years and the number one spot picked up Charles Haley, who, ironically, was in the same draft. And raided a route the same attack McKinley are Charles Harris. I'm sorry. Charles. Charles Charles Haley. Right way. I'd like to have the guy that was rushing the pastor there for both the Cowboys in the 40 Niners. That would be great, but Harris. He does have some raw talent there. Can't he realize that I'm the Falcon Tutelage will have to wait and see Grady dear. It's an emerging star in the tackle position and Marlon Davidson, Vienna and an interesting ad, a guy that has the versatility to play inside. Maybe in past situations and also play the perimeter as a 34 defensive didn't run down situations. The answer at all Burn second round draft pick of the fact that they think they've upgraded their defensive line. It'll have to be upgraded because you get extremely young secondary. Probably gonna have a rookie a corner starting your nickels, a second year guy in your other corners of third year, guys, So there's a lot of young players on the perimeter need to get some pass rush speed up the thought process for the quarterback. Let's get to the final down. Alright. I'm surprised that Dan Quinn is Bacca's the head football coach for the Lancer Falcons. What does he have to do this year to keep his job and Is that seats the warm because, like I said, I was surprised that they brought him back for this year. It is warm. I think that it's fortunate they brought him back because of the current situation with the pandemic and the uncertainties, so some continuity certainly has played into Atlanta Falcons off season. I think they've had a solid offseason, much as you can, with the limitations. They're attached to this year, So I think that it was good in retrospect that, uh, Mr Black decided to keep Dan Quint on, but I think he's got there. They've got a bit pushed for a playoff spot. I think they've got to be. They can't come out of the box one in seven. It's got to be a team. It's in the hunt of the entire way. As you said, it's going to be outstanding division with outstanding quarterback play, but they have to be in the hunt to be a part of the postseason play. If they do that. And I think the fans will be a little bit of stab on the wound for the fans. But if you get out to a slow start, it would not surprise me. If if Mr Blank made some kind of decision mid season on coach Boy and I think, coach when is the right guy for the job Now it's put up or shut up. He scored a touchdown will go for two here Oscar. One more question This team was 11 5 We all know the deal they were in the Super Bowl blew the 28 23 lead. The next year, they did go 10 and six, the last two years. It's seven and nine. If you had to identify the biggest reason why this team has regressed, and I know they've had some injuries to but overall if it's not the health of the team, what's the biggest thing that you look at? Why this team wasn't able to recreate that magic from 2016 and 2017? I think their inconsistency ball on both sides of the football in conversion, down situations and in the red zone. I think Atlanta's done a great job of moving the ball from 20 to 20 But when they get in the red zone, they bogged down and settle for too many threes. And I think in turn the defense's side of the football. What about 22 23 scoring defense coming up 25 points a game. They've got to find a way to get more stops in the red zone. That's probably the answer that you could probably get from all teams struggled and not made the playoff teams, but I certainly think That that's identifiable with the Falcons over the last couple years, the inability down deep in the red Zone both on offensive defense, Julio Jones, he's Ah Hall of Fame player. We all know that one of the better wide receivers in the league He's only had one year of double digit touchdowns, going back to 2012 when he had 10 TUC maybe 10 touchdowns in his fortunes this year. Well, I think he's certainly capable of it. But you got an outstanding receiver on the other side of Calvin Ridley, who's realized his abilities down in the red Zone Pretty close. I think Aidan hearse is going to be a seamless transition from Austin Hooper tight end spot So there are a lot of weapons from that Ryan to get the football too. Don't forget Todd Gurley and how good he is at the back catching the football as well. So I I would say no, I think he's going to be 89 touchdowns. I don't think he goes double digits, but I think there's a lot of guys around him. They're going to score touchdowns. Look for guys somewhere between 13 14 guys catch touchdown passes issue. Say that we appreciate it. Thanks so much. You be well, my

"Guys backing off. When you talk about that offensive line to follow up on that I'm a big fan of Matt Hennessy. Being a temple grad, really smart football player puts in a lot of work. Is he going to make an immediate impact in your number one? Yeah, There's always a question that he's certainly in the mix to be the starting guard. There's no question about that. I think that there's ah lot excitement around when he brings the table and and obviously the heir apparent, Alex Mack, probably its center. So Alex back in a little bit longer to still have a good football any But I need to put some guys around him that Khun taken, it could be in there and we had German Brown and James Carpenter guys that could not stay on the field. There was some solid moments from those two big veteran players, but they did not stay on the field and consistency. In the interior specialist that left guard spotted Kennedy ultimately will probably win that job and be the starter that guard let's get to the next down. All right, David Archer. When they flip the switch here and go to the other side of the ball defensively, it was an up and down year for the defense, but it seemed like they did finish in a better spot than what they did earlier on in the season. You could probably say that for the entire team with the Atlanta Falcons this division. Is loaded with offensive talent. You know what the Saints are. Now you have Tom Brady and the division with Tampa Bay, and I'll be curious to see what Teddy Bridgewater does with the Panthers. What's your read on the Falcons defense entering 2020 Well, it's an uncertain situation obviously went on God. Dante Fowler, Dad's pressure off the edge contact. McKinley realized what they thought they had when they drafted him a couple of years and the number one spot picked up Charles Haley, who, ironically, was in the same draft. And raided a route the same attack McKinley are Charles Harris. I'm sorry. Charles. Charles Charles Haley. Right way. I'd like to have the guy that was rushing the pastor there for both the Cowboys in the 40 Niners. That would be great, but Harris. He does have some raw talent there. Can't he realize that I'm the Falcon Tutelage will have to wait and see Grady dear. It's an emerging star in the tackle position and Marlon Davidson, Vienna and an interesting ad, a guy that has the versatility to play inside. Maybe in past situations and also play the perimeter as a 34 defensive didn't run down situations. The answer at all Burn second round draft pick of the fact that they think they've upgraded their defensive line. It'll have to be upgraded because you get extremely young secondary. Probably gonna have a rookie a corner starting your nickels, a second year guy in your other corners of third year, guys, So there's a lot of young players on the perimeter need to get some pass rush speed up the thought process for the quarterback. Let's get to the final down. Alright. I'm surprised that Dan Quinn is Bacca's the head football coach for the Lancer Falcons. What does he have to do this year to keep his job and Is that seats the warm because, like I said, I was surprised that they brought him back for this year. It is warm. I think that it's fortunate they brought him back because of the current situation with the pandemic and the uncertainties, so some continuity certainly has played into Atlanta Falcons off season. I think they've had a solid offseason, much as you can, with the limitations. They're attached to this year, So I think that it was good in retrospect that, uh, Mr Black decided to keep Dan Quint on, but I think he's got there. They've got a bit pushed for a playoff spot. I think they've got to be. They can't come out of the box one in seven. It's got to be a team. It's in the hunt of the entire way. As you said, it's going to be outstanding division with outstanding quarterback play, but they have to be in the hunt to be a part of the postseason play. If they do that. And I think the fans will be a little bit of stab on the wound for the fans. But if you get out to a slow start, it would not surprise me. If if Mr Blank made some kind of decision mid season on coach Boy and I think, coach when is the right guy for the job Now it's put up or shut up. He scored a touchdown will go for two here Oscar. One more question This team was 11 5 We all know the deal they were in the Super Bowl blew the 28 23 lead. The next year, they did go 10 and six, the last two years. It's seven and nine. If you had to identify the biggest reason why this team has regressed, and I know they've had some injuries to but overall if it's not the health of the team, what's the biggest thing that you look at?

Say that we appreciate it. Thanks so much. You be well, my friend. To be with you, man Picker. There's David Archer. As we preview the Atlanta Falcons will go through all 32 teams. You have four downs, and we get a few questions in that process is well with some follow ups. You look at Atlanta and I'll spend the mentor on them giving you my thoughts. You see the NFC East. It's either Philadelphia or Dallas. Then you go to the north. It's either Green Bay or Minnesota. You go to the south. You would think it's either the Saints or Tampa and then in the West. You think it's either the 40 Niners of Seattle win that division So you look at the teams that don't win the division. For example, let's say if San Francisco wins it in the West, you would anticipate that the Seahawks are 100% B a playoff team, especially with them, adding an extra team..

David Archer previews the Atlanta Falcons

"The Atlanta Falcons will do so with a former Falcons quarterback. Now he is their longtime color analysts on the radio network for Atlanta. And that is David Archer. David Hope all is. Well. Thanks for doing this. When we look at the Falcons, they made a big offseason acquisition getting Todd Gurley We don't know where the health is of Todd Gurley. What do you expect at a Todd Gurley coming over from l. A to Atlanta for this upcoming season? Well, be honest with you. I think we're expecting a lot of early and mainly in the Red zone. If you look at Todd Gurley's numbers, even with with so called quote unquote down near Around 900 yards rushing, still had 12 touchdowns. All 12 of those touchdowns came in the red Zone, and I think that Atlanta if they could find a way to run the football down close Help three up the talented weapons that Ryan has on the perimeter. Now, listen, you have a little bit more of a potent attack a little bit more looking a little bit more like what? You looked like a 16 when Avante Freeman and Tevin Coleman. We're carrying the ball down there close and created that problem in the run game. Atlanta has not had that over the last couple of seasons. I think that's where they expect Todd Gurley to make his main hey is down there in the red Zone. With the way that you probably have to manage his reps as a running back the rest of the running back room. Is there something that jumps out to you? Yeah, I think it's a good group. Really Do I think that when you look at Brian, Ill in the way, Brian Gillis Kamani together that Hawkins drafted a couple of years ago, Brian Handsome solid moments a year ago. Quadri Allyson. Kid at Pittsburgh rookie from a year ago. Uh, kind of woke himself. A little bit of a roll is a short yardage guy. £225 Goal line Guy, four touchdowns. Hopefully, you know, Smith can come back. He was injured in the game a year ago. I believe against the Rams in which he was trying to pick up a Blitzer, which he shouldn't be here should be doing, but he is an outstanding receiver out of the backfield. And a good change of pace back at the back, So they get to three young guys that I think you could lean on. And like you said, Take some of that. Load off. Assad, Girl. Let's get to the next down. And when we do so, we take a look at Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. The two big names in that organization. Do you still believe that this team could be a play off team once again with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones? I do, but it's you know, obviously, it's about you know your supporting cast and you do some things on the other side of the ball, and I'm sure there's a question you've got to worry about the defense's side the football, But there there's a little area in the offensive line. The left guard has been a little bit leaky, right guard's been a little bit leaky because of some injuries and things that they could shore up that into your part of the offensive line. Ryan's Like most classic quarterbacks climb in the pocket. They got to be able to give him that opportunity. Do so if you get into your pressure and accurate from problems, one game will help in that regard, but Yeah. Julio Jones, 16 seconds, 1300 yard seasons. Matt Ryan, nine consecutive 4000 yard seasons. I don't see the one those guys backing off. When you talk about that offensive line to follow up on that I'm a big fan of Matt Hennessy. Being a temple grad, really smart football player puts in a lot of work. Is he going to make an immediate impact in your number one? Yeah, There's always a question that he's certainly in the mix to be the starting guard. There's no question about that.

"You know a fringe first round prospect. They wind up getting him. Early in the third round I think that they the the results that came from the process that they chose a turned out to be pretty good and I think the judge Jones decent chance that he starts right away over Justin Marine Arizona. Yeah interesting what Brandon. Thorn has to say about that once. We get his stuff as we get closer to the season. Let's move to the Atlanta Falcons They took first round offensive Lineman last year than these third round. Pick this year on Mad Hennessy. But but look they passed on? Sealand which we talked about on Friday. They pass on all wide receivers really and I know you think very lowly of Russell Gauge. I don't think Russell teachers any kind of world-beater but Russell gauge did average over eight targets per game down the stretch. Last year I believe was final. Five or six games mentioned him In my fantasy winners article you can check out on the site. And also you know Falcons two zero R. BS so tigers competition is pretty dusty. I'm Brian Hill Quadra. Allison the judge Ito Smith. I was a little bit surprised. That falcons didn't at least try to get in upgraded third wide receiver again upgrade at running. Back what did you think about? What the Falcons did in the draft while they had a pathetic cowardly draft. But that's you know real life take in not necessarily applicable to fantasy and you mentioned Russell gauge all of a sudden. He's like a PR back in late. Round sleeper running routes between Calvin Ridley and Julio Jones. And he's GonNa get more opportunity than people think I mean that's why they should have taken C. D. lands. Then in that scenario. They wouldn't have to do this with Russel Gage but now they're probably GonNa have to and he did have some Some positive moments last season. you're right at the running back nate into anything and they're going to bring back. Brian Hill and Edo Smith and You know a Buncha replacement level Backs BEHIND TODD? Gurley and I started doing my my initial run of running back. Rankings and I mean he's he's coming out pretty nice in that. Rb Fifteen area last year. He did not have setbacks with his knee And they the Rams Raynham pretty hard in the second half of the year I think that this is going to be. I think it's GonNa be a pretty good offense in Atlanta. I think it's not as good as it would have been if they had they taken. Cd Lamb. But I think that their offensive line JAKE MATTHEWS ALEX. Mack The right side has gotten a lot better left guard. James Carpenter was or the. The right side is made up of the first round picks from last year. Caleb Garin Chris Lindstrom and then left Dr James Carpenter not very good a lot of experience but not very good is GonNa get pushed by Matt Hennessy. They draft third round was a guy that had a lot of second round buzz And Come at temple ethic is a guy that.

"Still on the board so Chris like I said. I don't think either of us were really expecting Andrew Thomas. It seems like all this work we did and we put in here. We were talking and saying it's going to be Isaiah Simmons. It's going to be worse. It's going to be wills maybe MCI Beck and I feel like we never dawned on us to talk about Andrew Thomas but apparently all this time Thomas was their number one guy and they liked worse. But Thomas just trumped everything out of all. They looked like they were trying to make a trade and they were they were going down to the final seconds there on the clock but ended up. Going with Andrew Thomson surprised us a little bit. Yeah from what we heard and what the smoke signals seem to be as the giants were trying to work a trade. Their preferred move was to trade back amass a little bit more draft capital. We kind of heard that they were working trying to work something out with the Carolina Panthers as well as the Jacksonville Jaguars. That was a little bit earlier. Rumor there was some truth to that but turns out. The trae didn't happen so the giants went with Andrew. Thomas and I think the reason we We kept drifting off of him is he is the safest of the top four tackles. He has the highest floor. He doesn't quite have the ceiling of the other is. But he's played both sides. He's played well at both sides. His feet are good enough. He's got really long arms yup over thirty six inch arms which is kind of ridiculous and you know we do know. Dave gettleman loves him. Some long armed is yet he has. He has a good ability in the run game. He can pass protect. Well does have some things to clean up particularly against particularly fast or particularly powerful pass rushers but he has a nice high floor. He doesn't have the ceiling of wharfs or becton but he's a much safer pick than those guys which considering where the giants are really shouldn't be that much of surprise they went with the Safe Guy. Interesting to look at Andrew Thomas and who is prospect? You talk about that arm. Lengthy six five three thirteen thirty six in eighth INCH ARMS. Ten and a fourth inch hands really. Just a big bodied guy is in terms of the prototypical traits. You want in an offensive. Tackle is the extreme of that in less. You're talking about MCI. Becton he has one of the the largest dimensions for an offensive tackle at the NFL. Combine is forty. Time was not really that jaw dropping but for a tackle doesn't really mean that much five to two twenty one bench reps pretty good for long arms like that. Thirty and a half inch vertical. A hundred and six inches on the broad jump seven point five eight three cone in the short shuttle. I thought was pretty good for six six. So very technically sound guy. Though you you talked about some of the stuff that he really brings to the table is just very technically sound and he can step in and start right away. I think that we're things Kinda get a little bit mixed up here. Is that if you have nate? Solder as you're likely and confirmed left tackle. Can we assume that Andrew Thomas will just easily make that transition to right? Because that's not always the case we look at least new with wills or worse. We were getting a right tackle with the giants. But but Andrew Thomas can you really make that prediction that he's GonNa just seamlessly slide on over to right tackle? Yeah he has played right tackle before he started as right tackle as a freshman and he did play well then but that was also a couple of years ago and yet the off season. This year is just weird. We don't have. The giants are starting their virtual off season. We don't know when and how the players will get to work with coaches what camp will look like. So do you move him over to right tackle or do you leave him at left? Tackle a position that is at least more immediately familiar. That might have a little bit shorter learning curve for him but then also ask nate solder to transition over to right tackle. So that question in of itself why I was kind of leaning towards wills or wirth's just because you could slot them in at right tackle right away. They don't have to learn or relearn any different techniques or basically. Do the mirror switch from left to right with their hands and feet. That's the giants are going to have to figure out. Fortunately Thomas is a he is experienced. He does have good technique coming out and really he's going to need it. 'cause wallet draft was going on. I went through and looked at the giants schedule coming up. And Thomas GonNa go through a trial by fire. The giants are going to face. A lot of good pass rushers. They're eight separate teams with double digit sack producers nine individual wt sack producers that are going to face and a total of three hundred and fifty four and a half sacks last year. We're GONNA find out right away if Andrew Thomas is the real deal and I think if you consider what we talked about this whole time during the off season the pick makes sense We were not predicting this we. He wasn't even a guy that we really thought was in the conversation. I talked about earlier in the show. But if you consider everything that we talked about early on during or actually not early on recently with the issues with Cova nineteen incur virus and the limitations that the NFL had to put down on themselves and not allowing the ability to host prospects and go to produce it makes sense why they went with Andrew. Thomas you talked about him. Being the safer pick he seems like the safer guy in the cleanest guy on tape. And you don't really have to worry about in potentially not translating as cleanly he doesn't have the highest ceiling out of the group but he can step in and start to easiest out of out of the other tackles that were drafted in the first round. So if you think about it in that sense that we talked about how. This year's draft is going to be a lot more based on film rather than the workouts and he wasn't the workout warrior like Tristan wharfs and MCI BECTON. But he did end up having the best tape. And that was what the evaluation came down to and Dave gettleman even said that. He said that they're relying a lot more on tape than they typically are so it ends up coming down to that. That's why Andrew Thomas ended up becoming the guy so round two is going to be coming around tomorrow for us to see what direction they'll be going in. Is that when they decide to go with defense in pick up? Some playmakers in some weapons. There's a lot of really talented guys still left on the board before we talk about them. We're getting a very short commercial break. Surprisingly there's a ton of players still left on the board for the giants to select at thirty six overall depending on if they trade back or up or if they stay in that spot or not. There's a lot of guys that we talked about his first round players that we were praying that fell to the giants now. Cesar release was one of those guys that we were hoping fell to the giants. He is no longer on the board. However there's a lot of really good options that you you've put out here for US Chris. Yeah you know when we did our consensus big board. We got some five five. I won't say criticisms at least questions about how many I or I slash second round fringe first round grades. We gave out Wind up with thirty five total but now you can see why. We gave out so many first round grades. This is just a remarkably deep draft particularly at the offensive tackle wide receiver positions. Really we are getting into the meat of the draft there. There is going to be so much valuable available in the second and third rounds if we say. The giants have addressed the offensive side of the ball. Now they're now they go to the defense got Gross maddow's out of Penn State Defensive End Zach bond linebacker slash edge out of Wisconsin Grant Dell a safety at Lsu Jeremy Chin safety out of southern Illinois also Doug still on the on. The Board Xavier mckinney still on the board Antoine Winfield still on the board. Atf AN ESA is still on the board. There are a bunch of really good defensive players just sitting there and at least one of them is going to be available when the giants pick assuming they don't move also giants could double dipping. Get another offensive Lineman cushenberry. The third is on the Board Matt. Hennessy is on the board them. Got Again the receivers. Levinsky Chenault is still there out of Colorado Got Denzel mims out of Baylor Michael Pittman out of USC if the giants WanNa add speed K. J. Hamblur out of Penn state and I haven't even gone over my head with the board open yet. That's just off the top of my head. Also t higgins. Is there at Clemson? The the number of really good receivers still available is pretty impressive. Now the question is can the giants afford to wait on those receivers for the third round the end of the third round? Could they move back and possibly get the high third round pick? They are missing that they used to trade for Leonard Williams by looking at our board. You can see even if they moved back a little bit. There are going to be good players available if they stay right where they are. You talked about all of these defensive players and that's really catches my eyes. Gross MOTTOS WOULD FILL. Anita's an edge. Rusher Zach Bond. Is the one that we're really going to be eyeing here for. A potential option for them coming around the bend here in the second second round. If he's still available at thirty six I think the giants would be a static to to select Zach Bonner guy that they probably graded as a first rounder and has positional versatility and could fit. Well with what the giants need. They need a guy that has that past experience but then could use him as an off ball outside linebacker in this new multiple four three scheme that they're going to be coming up with Patrick Graham. So there's plenty of options for them to go with to go defense in the second round and then do they clean themselves up with taking a center like Matt Hennessy. In the third order they go receiver. There're a lot of options for them to go here and honestly taking Andrew Thomas Fills. That need is the first time in a while that they've spent a high draft pick on an offensive. Lineman. And now we're in a position for the giants to still take a really really talented. Yeah this is a very deep draft class at a number of positions and they can still go out there and take someone that is going to come in and step in and likely start in contribute at.

I'm going to scoot right over to the athletic and check out what you wrote about the giants if you wrote bad things. I'm going to send those sorts of nasty notes. You can smash me absolutely okay. All right thanks Mike. Take care all right. Lots of interesting stuff there from Mike. Sando of the athletic. Let's take a quick break here for a word from our espy nation sponsors. When we come back I'll play for you an interview that I did with temple wide receiver Isaiah right giants fans. I'm joined now by. Nfl draft hopeful. Is there right wide receiver from temple as we look forward to the two thousand twenty. Nfl Draft Isaiah. Thank you very much for joining the show. Hey So you. If I'm not mistaken you did not get a combine. Invite correct not were you. Were you hoping for wanted? You expect to get one surprised that you didn't get one You know just just thoughts on that Yeah I was expecting one and I. I was more hopeful. I didn't know what to expect. But you know things are still going well so. I wasn't really discourage our kind of is point right so you you did get a chance to participate in the East West Shrine game and from everything that I read and everything that I that I heard That went pretty well for you. Just described that experience. And you know who you got to talk to their and and you know how you feel like that helped you You know going toward the draft or you know I got to go and compete with some guys that you know were the same caliber talent and it was just a good experience just to you know. Learn from a lot of people like other players like I was down there learning in talking to you. Know other coaches and scouts and you know they were just telling me to be myself doing it and to enjoy it and sometimes what you need because a Lotta Times you know when you have prices you you you kinda over. Thinks he's sometimes you just need to calm down. I guess I've never been in that situation but I would guess that it's it's easy to forget that it's it's a once in a lifetime experience and that That I guess you should take it all in and enjoy it while you're in the middle of it exactly sometimes you when you're in is hard to savor the moment sometimes. I have to come back to that reality so that we can do so. Have you Out of curiosity. My site covers the New York giants. Have you spoken with the giants at all? Yeah we'll continue the conversation You know we're just going to say know. Go ahead go ahead. You're talking about the giants so go ahead now just I- conversations with the giants. You know very hope. I don't know you just you experience in a good opportunity and I was grateful. Good good Can you if I was to ask you your what about six to two twenty. Correct your third. And you've been used you've been used as a as a punt and kick returner as a wide receiver as a running back If I was to ask you to give me a scouting report you know on what you would be bringing to an NFL team What would you say I would say I would be bringing This you know The ability to adapt I'll be bringing the versatile consistent talent and You know somebody that's willing to do whatever they have to do to you know. Learn and look and you know there are some guys in the NFL. Now guy like Like deebo Samuel. Got A lot of attention this past year for for being able to do a lot of different things. Cordeiro Patterson has has made a career out of you know being a wide receiver being a a running back being a kick returner. I think time Montgomery's done some of that. Do you see yourself as that sort of a versatile sort of offensive weapon more than I'm a wide receiver or or on the Kicker Turner or whatever I see myself as someone. Is You know versatile in the sense of where needed I can play that position. You know a lot of times people wanna just play specific position and you know I always had a love game where I just wanted to be on sale. Whether that was being returned kick return ours. You know what I'm saying. I just write loved their feeling of being on a suit and jubilant and the possibility of making a big place so however eat on the field was however starting to get on the field right so so you talk about you know we. We mentioned the fact earlier. That didn't get an invite to the combine so D- feel like in the fact that you're not able to to run a traditional pro day that the with the with the virus going around. Nfl teams are shut. Down and scouts aren't traveling has that. Does that hurt you at all? Or how are you dealing with? You know trying to get your name out there and get your film out there for NFL teams at this point. I think kind of was going on right now and you know the Korean and everything is just kind of suing us. How we should have faith over fear and I've been allowed any of that discourage me you know. I put the work in and I know you know. I know what I can bring to a team and I'm just hoping that you know someone else. Would I feel like I see and like I said I'm from girl? Allow myself to be overwhelmed with things that I can't control. Have you been able to you know since the shutdown have you been able to talk to any any? Nfl teams or or anyone from from you know NFL offices. At all. I know some. There's no go ahead. I'm sorry I talked to a couple of teams not talk to a couple of guys you know and they were just having to not allow these times to discourage me because I found you know and people recognize my talents so again I say I just contained to grind and allow my. I allow myself to have faith in times. They're trying right now call. Hey before I let you go. I have to ask you about one of your teammates. Guy Who I know. Giants fans are interested in Guy Who probably is looked at as maybe a day to prospect. I wanted to ask you about About your thoughts on on Matt Hennessy. And you know what kind of teammate he is and what kind of NFL PLAYER. You'd think he might be. Will you know Matt Hennessy? That's the type of guys that you know is gonNA come in. He's going to work done. No He's not there to play You know when you're trying to accomplish in his mind and Matt I mean so you know I'm excited to see is going to bring you know and is saying but the giants. I think you should be excited to get somebody to that hard working at the tournament and I've seen that'd be retailing. Degree fit all right Isaiah. Thank you very very much for spending a few minutes with me. Appreciate that best of luck to you. Hopefully hopefully you'll hear your name called in the draft later this month and if not hopefully you'll land somewhere with an opportunity to make a roster Valentine line I appreciate you because another five gas.

"Right. We are continuing on. We are now addressing the offensive and defensive lines with our DEAR PAL. Find Him on twitter at chief in Carolina Mattie Lane. How are you my friend? Do Good it's nice to be here with both of you guys since you guys went gallivanting off on your own to the combine. Invite Your Eyes. So now we're back all together as a group and it just it just feels right gallivanting. Yeah there was lots of gallivanting. Good word yes. I know what that word means totally Let's go ahead. Mattie wha what I WanNa do talk let's talk about the tackles the interior offensive line and defensive line prospects that that helped their situation in how or hurt their situation how it affects the chiefs draft. So we're going to start on the offensive tackle. Ezra Cleveland out of Boise State. Mattie you were mad last week that we did it. Mock enough tackles in to the first round of our mock draft well. Cleveland is announcing his presence. With authority he could be like seven tackle taken in this draft and he might wind up all the way into the first round. Kit was smarter you to get ahead of Tirade about our lack of offensive tackle going in the top ten. But we'll leave that. David's control as clearly had four top eleven as reclaim atop succeed. As Cleveland was one of the most athletic combine performances. You have seen often to tackle just about ever right up there rivaling. What Colt Miller did a couple years ago? And if editor members Colt Miller ended up going in the top half of the first round based purely on this athletic upside. I don't think as Cleveland's GONNA give himself up that high end of the draft class. I don't think the offense of tackled classes a whole week is it was that year. But he's definitely pushed his name Almost top fifty locked in the thing is his fill on. The field is good. He's very steady very technical. He is a good player. The athleticism shows just not elite level athleticism and for the chiefs. This is great news. Get this guy off the board before thirty to push somebody else down. They don't need an offensive tackle. That bad right now if somebody wants to jump up grab the top thirty six anything. Nope that's I don't as real yet. He's so this is going to be completely from like Someone who hasn't watched him and just heard about him but wasn't it like before the combine people were talking about him playing guard right and now he he tested so my question is what on his tape. Lead you to believe that he potentially might be guard. This athleticism that show up on tape. I I don't know if I understood the guard talk either. I don't think he looked like he was the longest offensive tackle. So if your whole reason was the arm length argument to go to guard. I make sense to me. It's functional strength is my biggest question so I think putting him inside were probably made that a little bit worse. I liked him to tackle. I just thought that he was steady and solid. Nothing splashy dynamic. Now I did find out coming from the combine. He played all year with turf toe injury that may have made a little bit of impact. He said that it didn't really get reported because he just had to play through it but he said that he play all season on turf toe injury that could impact them. I thought he looked like a good athlete. It's just I don't know what the whole thing that was holding his tape was. I need to go back and watch two thousand eighteen tape to see if that injury hampered of more than I thought I did and I need to watch him too because the packers actually speaking of before the cheese the packers actually have very similar needs to the chiefs in this draft class. Especially when you look at that inside linebacker position Looking for a team. That might take someone that could be there for the chiefs. That thirty two But a guy like Ezra Cleveland watching what happens with Brian Balogh if he leaves that skyrockets offensive tackle to a huge need for green bay. So a guy like Ezra going thirty overall Green Bay could really really be something that could really helped chiefs out at thirty two especially if that knocks back like a candidate. Murray or Patrick Queen the the hit rate on offensive LINEMAN TO RUN SUB. Four point five. Short shuttles is very high as re Cleveland. I believe is the only person in this class to hit that threshold. I let's move to the interior offense of line now and a guy that we got to see it the senior Bowl Matt Hennessy. At a temple. He really helped himself along this week to Mattie yeah and Matt Hennessy like you said after the Senior Bowl. His stock was already on the way up. I think more people got to see him. They gotta see how fluid of a movie was. He was essentially. I think what everyone thought Nick. Harris was going to be a very athletic zones. Probably Zone scheme only interior offense but he has a good enough anchor good enough base general baseline size that he can play in the NFL. You have questions about that guys like cares Matt. Hennessy came out to the combine. Not only did he move very well. He still ran a five one eight forty time. He had good three Cohn at seven. Four five the shuttle's four point six he had a good performance but where he released it out wasn't the drills. Once they got out to the field work you could tell that he moved at a different way in a different way than some of these other interior offensive. Line Guys Matt His. He's probably going in the top sixty four at this point in time now and if the cheese want him. This is a popular mock draft pick for chiefs fans in the third round going through this whole process. You know you're taking him in the second round if you want Matt Matt. Nfc maybe even earlier. Yeah if you want if you want him it's gotTA BE PICKED. Sixty four It there's just there's no doubt about it in the interesting thing is second best short shuttle on the day For the offense of Lyman was Matt. Hennessy didn't meet that four point five threshold but it certainly was the second best performance of the week. Yeah Do you have anything? Jake not really Just that just basically Dako and kind of piggyback off Matty said It looks like that. Sixty four pick is kind of the sweet spot. I think for a lot of these into your offensive linemen and I think that's headed up by medecine. I think you've gotta grab the reins of kind of that second tier interior of wine tight. So that's probably If they're gonNA net snap them up that's probably what's going to be. Yeah I just wanted to add. I think Cesar Ruiz is still very clear number. One Interior offensive linemen. Especially if you're looking at center. I don't think he did anything to hurt his stock. He moved very well too but mad. Hennessy's probably gotta be centered number two right now and if you're looking at interior offensive lineman as a whole. He's gotTa be there in the second tier with a couple often tackles guys that are kicking into guard so if you want. Interior Offensive Lineman Matt. I'm even sure you can wait till sixty four if you're going after a Senate because after him. Caesar there's a big drop off at center if that's your plan. They're still guys like Keith. Ishmail that you can get to. Maybe a Lloyd cushenberry some of those guys but they might even be pushed down like maybe closer to that third round ranges. Well artless closed this out Mattie with defensive Lineman Neville Gallimore out of Oklahoma so the first to have kind of been guys that may be helped the chiefs by pushing some other guys down with Matt Hennessy. We talked about how they might have to take him a little bit earlier before. Nedal Gal APPs I think he was a guy that a lot of people saw that could slip into the first round based on some freakish athleticism and that showed up at his forty time Iranian blazing fast forty one of the better ones for defensive tackle. I've got a ton of But then he ran the agility drills. Didn't do explosive testing which was strange given his athleticism but after the four seven nine forty he ran almost eight second three. He ran over five second twenty shuttle. Those are bad numbers for a smaller. Athletic Pass Rushing defensive. Tackle a don't think there's going to be a big urgency to take him in the first round you kick out that third defence of tackled. It was fighting to get into the first round position that she's probably aren't looking as heavily. That just puts another player. Hopefully just a trade out for Cleveland. But that just puts another player to A position the chiefs may need going in the top thirty one picks and I love. I love big NABS tape He was graded. How for me? Really well and we ran that forty. You're like oh my goodness here goes like here comes the and then it was like I mean just fell off a cliff which is weird right to count it not to go off on a tangent but like these numbers. Were really interesting this year. The combine and there's been a lot of buzz about guys standing around all day like what's going on With these guys have to run and wait now or do something else So I'm not sure if nev is someone that is going to be able to rebound at his pro day but produce in general this year. I feel like we're going to be a lot more interesting to pay attention to just because I think there's a lot of guys out there that weren't pleased with their combine performances and maybe weren't pleased with the setup of the NFL combine And they're looking to rebound and I never gallimore is one of those guys that could potentially be In that boat. We've we've got one of those guys that's definitely going to have to re to re-test when we talked to Craig but no. I totally agree with everything. You guys have said so. Far the one other thing I just wanted to ever gallimore. I don't think the process insanity season has gone great for the senior bowl. He was good but he was gung nearly a step below Johnson while he was he was in the next group of guys down. He didn't stand out anymore out. Marlon Davidson was better than his one. Day strawbridge was just as going. He did not impress at the senior bowl he had the same issues. He flashed on Cape at the senior bowl. He was kind of a one move guy that struggled the transition moves together if this athletic testing sticks bottom six percent Thailand. Three cone bottom two percentile in twenty yard shuttle. If that's the that's probably why he can't count. He literally placed too out of Control to change direction in the middle of a play right. That might be a warning signs yet. You can kiss that first round hype for him goodbye. In my opinion after the combine unless something changes with Oklahoma pro-death that is chief in Carolina. Mattie lane thanks for joining us but thanks for having me on guests. That's senior beautiful faces again. We move on from one handsome man to talk to another find him on twitter at Barley. Hop Craig. Stoute's thank you for taking a little bit of.

"Back with the Tom shillue show. I didn't promise you anything in case you didn't show up. But then he did show up Matthew Hennessy's here. Matt hennessy. I can call you Matt right? You sure can Matt Hennessy writes for the Wall Street Journal. So you're in the building I work in the same building as you. I didn't even know that I got your book people have been telling me about your book. And I said I got to get this guy on the show. And then I emailed you. And you you you are available. So we made it happen. I always make a point to Email people within thirty to forty five seconds left. They think I'm nothing. Are you good at that? I'm bad at returning the emails. Well, it's a bit of foreshadowing because I'm about to body slam people who are that are who are that on top of their personal. I know it's funny, isn't it? So the book is zero hour for gen-x. I love talking about genetics. The generation I mean, it's really is. It is is Janine Garoppolo the poster child for our generation, she originally, she was the almost the definition of gen-x wasn't. She I don't know if I want to grant her that. But definitely a gen xer was that movie. She did with Ben Stiller. It was the definition of gen-x guys know that don't you didn't Ben Stiller. Josh reality by reality bites. Lease not the star of that. No. I guess you're right. No, no. She's not if it's Ethan Hawke and Winona Ryder, your rights, Winona Ryder. Keyed right in on. She was the real stock. Anyway, look it's zero for generics. And you have an interesting thesis for this book. And you know, what's interesting. I read the introduction. I kept reading it over and over again your opening why because it it has the all the important thesis thesis of the book laid out. Okay. And it reminded me of Jonah Goldberg who his the introductory chapter was enough. We spent the entire interview talking about the first three pages of his book, and this is a similar book. And then he went ahead and wrote how much he loved your book on the back of yearbook that was very nice. And did you tell him that you were only gonna talk about the first few pages or did he figure it out or I told him, and he said excellent he was he was like. Yeah. So I'll do that. If you want to okay. The first highlight in the book. Okay. Because the subtitle of the book is how the last adult generation can save America from millennials. Why us why this generation? I mean, you're one of them your genetics. Are you jenex? I am gen-x. It'd be a very strange book for me to write if I wasn't. Well, we're on the edge the other opposite ends of I'm gen-x. Okay. I was born in sixty six don't say, I'm not genetic. I didn't say you weren't login. You got gen-x all over you k so why this generation why are we the ones to save things? Well, because we remember what the world was like before the internet came along. And that's significant because we were I call us the last adult generation, which is kind of a heavy mantle. But what I mean by it is that we were the last. Group generation of Americans to get cut from a baseball team. Or to be told that we weren't very good at something. We were the last generation to to ride the ride our bikes in the neighborhood without our helmets on. We were not the participation trophy generation the ills that have sprung from that way of parenting children are pretty well documented you were talking about this line for your here. Okay. Unlike the millennials we remember what life was like before the internet invaded. And conquered nearly everything that's intense. Is it it don't you think? It's true though. You know, what as I'm reading this book? I'm like, I'm embarrassed. I wanna throw my phone away. But then I think I can't I, you know, my producer, Matt. And I plan the day's events on the phone in the morning. I Email him. He'll Email me stories. They come and they have all the links in them. And then I Email them back on the train on the way here and sometimes thinking, oh boy technologies fantastic. Because. Allows me to work while I'm on the train. This is so great. But then reading your book, I'm thinking, it's horrible technology has ruined our lives. Okay. Well, let me explain why I wrote the book because I do have technology. Of course, you can't live without it. I don't live without it. I'm not on sensitive to the criticism here, which is just a giant hypocrite. But I wrote the book because I sensed a change in me. I notice that I was they call it digital distraction. I was getting addicted to my phone. I was having a hard time concentrating in situations where I really wanted to be able to concentrate and the story that I tell them the book is about making pancakes with my kids on Saturday mornings. I work I work late. I get home late. I often don't get a chance to see my kids in the evening. So Saturday morning, I really look forward to it. And I found that on Saturday mornings while I was making these wonderful, delicious home-made pancakes, I was like looking at my phone every thirty seconds or or or less like I couldn't put it down. And I realized that this was not me like this is not this is this was a new thing. I have picked this behavior in the last five or seven years. Maybe I mean, how long of these things been around ten years. Do your kids ever tell you to put it put that phone. Of course, I have a two year old and he comes around, and he bangs on my on my hand if I'm if I'm looking at it. So I'm horrified by myself. That's why I decided to write this book because I think there has to be there has to be a way back. I'm not talking about throwing these things out. But maybe we don't need to put Amazon Alexa in the bathroom in every room of the house. Doesn't have to be wired up to the internet. Yeah. Maybe your toaster doesn't need to be on a direct hotline to Cupertino or a back. We were the promise a couple of years ago was that it was all going to be connected. And I do, you know, but the thing is I don't want people to think because I want everyone to read this book. But I don't want them to think it's just a bunch of advice to put your cellphone down. You told a story about going to buy a record? I think it was Duran Duran. Oh, yes. It's true. I record. It was your first purchase. Right. That was the first record. I ever bought. Yeah. Duran duran. Duran Duran album seven and the ragged tiger. Oh, seven and the Red Sea. I had it because I'm on the other end of Jags had had Durant Durant originally, the planet earth film. No before that before the planet earth planet. Who knew there was anything before that? I know so. But the the act of going to the mall picking up the record bringing home holding in your hand, your friends came over and saw that you had that album. Those experiences are gone because people have their music collection in the cloud. So what does that mean? What what other things have we, you know, why was it better to go and buy Duran Duran album by hand, then having your music in the cloud. Well, I use it as a as a self deprecating illustration a metaphor for what the problem is. Which is that we don't have the ability to wait for anything anymore. And you know, I listen to you previous discussion about millennials. And why they're so obsessed with socialism, and my theory is that they are so used to having every single problem solved almost instantaneously. They don't know what it's like to wait for the new Durant Iran album to come out have you noticed this recent trend? Among rap artists move you haven't. Of of secretly releasing outlook beyond say or Jay. We'll just people won't know. It's coming. Yeah. And then suddenly it's like, oh my gosh. There's a new beyond say album today that I think is they do it that way because they're trying to. Mimic that feeling that used to have of being excited and building up to something. And and being looking forward to it because you can't have that experience anymore because every single you can download a movie to your telephone in an instant chemo. Imagine how how crazy that is. If you really think about it. There's nothing that you can't have in an era anymore. When you do have to wait. Then you get mad. Right. You remember that famous Louis CK bit that I that I mentioned in the book about how their people are flying through the air at thirty thousand feet at the speed of light. And they're all upset because they can't get WI fi on their on their phones. There's a that's a big problem. I don't hear that many people. Expressing to kind of anxiety about it that I have. So I wanted to write the book to sort of in in promoting the book and then walking around and talking to people about it. I'm definitely hearing back that. Yeah. Yeah. Actually, this stuff kind of freaks me out to. I don't think it's so good that we don't wait for the things that we want anymore. We don't in a lot of cases even pay for the things that we want anymore. Yeah. The the communications that have happened on social media people have conversations on Twitter on Facebook. And I don't even get involved in them because they're so ridiculous. Their arguments over foolish things about who should be cast in a movie different groups things like that. And I think I'm not even the I want to argue this issue, but I can't get involved in it. And I think it's there's as I'm reading your book, I'm thinking, should we be talking to each other all the time in the old days? Like, you're talking about the days of this reminds, you know, the the memories in my book mean dad's for a better America. I talk a lot about jumping off the roofs and getting into trouble and being riding bikes on your own and being away from parents in that world away from parents. Okay. But we had our neighborhoods. And then there was the the other neighborhood the bad neighborhood. We didn't really have bad neighborhoods in my town. But the idea is oh don't cross that street. That's where the bad kids, are whatever there were figuring things out the woods. How far into the woods? You could go. With things like that. And we learned and we we we got to develop judgment. Do you think that the current crop of young people haven't developed it? They haven't developed judgment. Of course. Not. Yeah. No, that's not even debatable. I mean, of course, you're going to find the odd one who has an, you know, and it's going to explode the whole theory. But the mere fact of being out of touch from your parents fostered in all of us, a kind of a self reliance and a kind of grits that parents they pay money to get a coach to I'm sorry. You know, the the higher coast to try to get their kids to be grittier is totally absurd. You could just kick them out of the house. Another element of this is I don't know what your personal life through your background is like, but a lot of people came home to empty houses from after school. In the seventies in the eighties. Like that was the thing. Yeah. Women were going into the workforce in large numbers the divorce rate peaked. So there was a lot of single parent families out there this business of the latchkey kid, nobody talks about that anymore..

"H. From the Fox News studios for a show with a unique look at politics, pop, culture, religion and more. It's Tom shillue. Welcome welcome. It is Tom shillue. And this is the Tom shillue show. You know, we do everything on this show. We talk about the headlines, you talk about culture talk about life, family, everything. And so I'm kind of now I feel like I'm running through all of my Catholic friends. I go after these Catholic retreats, and I meet these guys I had a guy named Matt Hennessy on he wrote a book zero hour for genetics. And now I invited this guy to the show Dr Gregory taro we met at a Catholic retreat. Right. Yep. I just want to warn. I listen, we're not gonna talk all Catholics up. Here. You have a book it's called the mindful Catholic, but it is about mindfulness. And it's something I have not discussed on the show, but I'm into the idea. Okay. So I was like let's get this guy in. We'll talk about the whole situation. And we'll we'll see if we can learn I'm already several chapters in the book, I'm totally into it. I'm doing your exercises. So let's kind of take them through your stuff. Now, you're the real thing. You're a doc. Your psychologist, right? Yep. Practicing in Connecticut, New York, and you do you do online online therapy fantastic. You are the director of the Catholic psych institute, that's Catholic psych dot com. And so the book is the word mindfulness. I was hearing a lot about it. You know? I do I I'm a Catholic. I I'm a very like a normal, dude. But I do things like yoga and some some of my other Catholic prints like yoga what's up with that? So eastern man, it's so new eight, but I love new age stuff, and I love incorporating into my life. And that's what your book does. So absolutely. I mean, the word is pretty common. Most people probably heard of mindfulness at this point, and they have. But I bet you think most people have heard of it. Well, I think it's at least in my field is out there. It's been out there for a while. Yeah. So in terms of normal, psychological. Treatment mindfulness is really big. Yeah. It's coming more popular. Why what is mindfulness? Let's define it. I so basic basic definition mindfulness. It's paying attention to the present moment, non judgmental. It's just being aware of what's really happening right now. And that's opposed to being. Lost in our thoughts sort of swept away and ruminations where we're sort of dazed dozing off, whatever in our mind is kind of doing its own thing. Or we snap out of it. We, you know, we we shake ourselves out of it and we plug back into. Okay. What's happening right now. So people experiences all time. You forget somebody's name. You know that you should remember because I'm thinking of what when I meet somebody. Right. You put your hand out. You say, hey, I'm Greg. And I say, hey, I'm Tom, but I wasn't even listening to great because I was thinking, okay. I got to put my hand. And I'm gonna say my name, and I'm going to be cool, and you know, whatever. And then I might be making. It'd be like, oh who is this guy who's he friends with? I don't even listen to Greg. Minutes later. I'm like, I don't know. The guy's name. I was I was thinking my name. And that's all mindfulness is learning. How to every moment. No matter what threats are coming at you. And these are emotional threats. These are interpersonal threat so your status what somebody's gonna think of you what you might have messed up from before. All of those things are creating these threat situations in our minds, which trigger our brains to to go into fight or flight mode. And the thing about fight or flight mode is we don't need to have awareness of the present moment, we just need to have an awareness of safety and the quickest route to safety now people probably saying, wait a minute. I don't go into fight or flight when somebody wants to shake my hand, we do bio chemically is happening in the brain. It doesn't feel the same way. But you can actually measure the the chemicals that are being triggered, and and sort of, you know, transported around the brain. And it's the same kind of thing. That's happening. We have two basic modes where our brain can either trigger that or not. And it doesn't have to be a fire in your house or footsteps behind you as your walk. Walking home late at night, those things trigger the same response. But in our ruminations, we create realities for ourselves that are basically doing the same thing and that close down our awareness and our focus. So we have very narrow focus based only on finding safety and said of the openness to really taking in everything that's happening in this present moment. That's that's what mindfulness says it's a it's a series of training exercises, which helps us learn that we're actually safe and then be able to implement the way of thinking to correspond with that safety. Yeah. So I think it's very the word mindfulness. There's a lot of business books that are written about this right in the business world. I think a lot of people high tech companies they put their employees through mindfulness because they think it's gonna help productivity. Right. And so from the I want to go to the personal though because if you're a boss, obviously, you you have an interest in having your employees be very mindful. So they can be productive in great make you money and everything like that. But for people they wanna be they want to be happy. They're stressed out. Right. Are we stressed out? Because why are we? He stressed out. Well, we're stressed out because we create let's break it down to the most fundamental core. And this is why it's the mindful Catholic, and that's why this is I give a Catholic justification for mindfulness. Because at the end of the day, we have to know that we're safe and mindfulness. No matter who is teaching it is based on that premise now some guys out here macho guys like dad, be safe. I don't wanna do this. It's no good. I don't do that new age, you know, that that guy can walk down Fifth Avenue and get a piano dropped in his head. Just like the next guy. Nobody can stop every bad thing from happening. No matter how much we convince ourselves that we're in control. We all have a sneaky suspicion in the back of our minds that there's something bigger that could happen. And so we need to have reassurance at the deepest core level that everything is going to actually be okay. That's our justification for being in the present moment. Why shouldn't we be raining? All the time. Maybe there are fires to put out everywhere. Why aren't there? I bet. A lot of people are listening and thinking I'm in the moment, they say, you know, my wife, she's not in the moment. She's always thinking know, I think. Lot of guys think this because women do have a men and women are very different the way they approach things. But sometimes you'll go into a situation, you'll meet someone and say, hey, great to meet you, maybe we should get dinner sometime, and then you leave and then you talk about it with your wife. Right. And you say and she says while that was weird. There was there was some hostility there. They didn't really want to invite us in. How'd you get all that think too much? And so I think a lot of guys are thinking they are in the moment. But e- when I started reading your book, I thought, you know, what all of those things I think about other people I do them. I'm constantly out outside of my head looking at self judging. Yeah. Judgment is is part of that rumination. But and men women have very different reasons for being mindless. So whereas a woman typically, and these are studies that are done in these are just statements, but typically, you know, that that kind of distraction that thinking too much will occur when it relates to relationships. Whereas for me, I know that if I'm laying in bed at night, and I hear a sound for the next twenty minutes. I'm lost in thought about all this as an invader might come into my home and all the ways that I would do I would take to to defend my home. And I kind of you know, my. Karate kid. You know, the last Posey does we crane cage. Big chicken order you start remembering which movies you've seen the teach you how to protect your family and your home. And so that's where that's where a man's mind might typically go. So we've got all the contingency plans laid out, and we know where the knives are which draw the weapons might be found in. So we we have different reasons for doing it. But we're all doing the same thing because we're again, it's not founded on that principle that we're really safe at the end of the day as Catholics we believe that we have a father in heaven who created us who makes everything safe. And so even death is nothing to be worried about Buddhist practice, mindfulness and teach mindfulness for a different reason. That's why this is mentioned in the book, your appendix says mindfulness Buddhist or Catholic question, Mark. So you explain that I didn't get to that chapter yet. But I think there's a lot of people who associate this kind of like the word mindfulness. They say all that sad Buddhist stuff. I don't wanna do that. You know, what I mean, do you encounter that? Yeah. Definitely. And it's a great question. And it's an important distinction to make. So we we distinguish the mindfulness itself. And it's. Essence from the reason why we practice the mindfulness. So the mindfulness is paying attention to the president nonjudgmental why because we're safe. How do we know? We're safe. Well, that's different if you're Catholic or Buddha. Yeah, catholics. No. We have a father creative Buddhist don't believe in in safety ordained. It's all an illusion, and they are progressing to this enlightenment. Where it all disappears. That's not why Catholics practice it. But we're practicing the same thing which is to allow peace into our lives by being in the present moment in learning how we're not actually being in the present moment. So you said before while most of us think we are in the present moment. This happens all day long. Just yesterday. I come into the house, and my son is disobedient about something. And it triggers me to start thinking in my mind. You know, all all hell's breaking loose and I've lost control of the ship. And this is mutiny and stuff, and I don't realize it. But I'm building a story that this is my wife's fault, and she is not controlling the kids. And then I snap at her a little bit. You know, she says what do you want for lunch? And I said, well, what's what's on? What's planned, like a little tinge of something that shouldn't have been there? And now, I'm really letting my distraction from the present moment it take away from my relationships. Take away from my emotional stability, my marriage to -bility the family stability at the end of the day. I'm actually causing the disruption that I was actually triggered by in the first place. Yeah. So these are minutia that we are constantly immersed in every day when we become aware of it. We wake up to it. We gain new control and a new level of freedom and choice of how we're going to relate to our day. So now, I Michael back to the situation, and I recognize inside of me the discomfort because my son is disobedient. And now, I can think about it because I'm aware of what's happening internally, and I can say to myself this is not my wife's fault. Or if there's something that it needs to be talked about with my wife, it should be handled directly non passive aggressively. And in a snotty way the way that I brought it up. And so we're in more control, we make better choices we live healthier lives. I'm thinking, I never took an anger management class. I guess everybody could use one, but I've never been no one to meet one ever. So I never took one. But I'm assuming that the stuff that's in this book that I'm reading so far is used in an anger management, capacity. Like, you said a lot of this stuff in men and women are I love talking about the difference between men and women, by the way. So we don't have to shy away from that stuff..

"Back with the Tom shillue show. This was the quote, I was looking for I opened up the Washington. The Wall Street Journal opinion page in the story by Matt Hennessy's talking to. Bishop Barron at Catholic Bishop, and he said if you wanted to get something out to a wire wider audience back when he was younger he was teaching at Chicago's in Chicago seminary if you wanted to get something out to a wider audience. There was a limited range of options. He recalls publications like common wheel America and the national Catholic reporter. He's just citing three of the biggest publishers of Catholic material were about the some of it all were very left-leaning. He said they still are which meant that. If you you had to write in a way that please the editors of those journals now on my YouTube page got more subscribers than those three combined people who had a conservative viewpoint and by that. I don't mean a radical viewpoint. I mean a center or centre right viewpoint disease. Very main stream guy here, a mainstream Catholic guy, and he said, he he he couldn't get published before you couldn't publish his actual opinions. So the promise of new media was that you could now go directly to the people will does the promise is not being kept because they sold themselves as a. Way to go direct to consumer with free speech. You your own YouTube page, you're on Twitter feed your own Facebook page and all of them are going back on their promise, and they are censoring people and kicking them off. So what's next Derek in west Bridgewater mass? I think we need a law. That says you cannot censor anybody mean you've got that blocked by you can block anybody you want. But no Facebook Twitter that's kind of like the town square. Now when they censor people. That's I believe that's against first amendment. I get centered on Facebook all the time. I mean, I got Facebook. You know, if I put a joke up one time about how the black guy virgin gutter black is, you know. But I I like the. What is it that the holy grail? You know comedy. I do. I just try to be funny. Just funny on Saturday Night Live you've been through this because they didn't like you were identified the left. Do they can control their content. But so you're making an argument Derek that it's the public square, and it's like a public accommodation is that what you're saying. Exactly. And you can block people don't wanna read it. Right. You don't have to have Facebook telling you what you can read what you can't read. Derek thanks for the call eight hundred three eight five two four eight six six. Wake up and text. Text and eat. Tax didn't catch the bus, text and miss your stop. Taxed and be late to work. Sorry. Text in work. Text and pretend to work. Text. The next surprised when someone calls you out for not working. Who me text and meet up with a friend. You haven't seen in forever. Text texting complain that they're on their phone the whole time. Text and listen to then complained that you're on your phone the whole time. Text in whatever. But when you get behind the wheel give your phone to.
