Fresh update on "matt patricia" discussed on The Bill Barnwell Show
"My concern about them in my sort of hesitance in picking them to win the division really was that I. Feel. Like I actually like the players they signed on defense, but I continue to be underwhelmed by what Matt Patricia has done with that defense right in so far as his. He's like. It's like a guy who dates a new girl and he liked buys her the clothes at his ex girlfriend war and I don't WanNa. Wear these clothes. That's a weird analogy. But you know what I mean he's he's tried. Also guys don't do that I don't know if any guys done that ever but that was came up with and I'm sticking with it but however he has got he's brought. So many of his. Old Girl Back. Like I actually think like drawn harmon and shelling like. He's complete desire collins to build this in the Patriots image might finally work now that he now has every former Patriot and I. I don't. I just I'm not convinced by what he's done so far but those are good players. Okay. Let me give you an example because there's no. Jackson cars don't pass rushing. issue. Scientific clammy. I'm going to step away from your metaphor. But I'm going to say this think about the Niner's offense with CAL Shanahan, the first two years he was there it was not good I mean they were good Jimmy Garoppolo and when they did have Jimmy Garoppolo, they were a mess. They were twenty-seventh indeed a in two thousand eighteen for all the brilliant schemes they had for having George Keitel in college checking all these blockers they were thirty second in rushing devi away in two thousand, eighteen third year switch flips garoppolos healthy. They get You know they add more players the. Weapons the offense is great. They make the Super Bowl I'm not saying that Matt Patricia is a cal Shanahan level when it comes to XS and os or game planning. But this is a guy who no I mean. He has with stuff that's worked for other teams have stolen. It had much more success with the guy who worked under bill ballot check for a long time. I have major issues major questions about how he handles the locker room is communication. I, mean I think that sort of what their silly might be but. I do think he is a better coach on defense than maybe the numbers seem to indicate. My hope is that you know with a a what what Chris long called. A complex defense is the guy who played underneath Matt Patricia with new. England I mean maybe you do get that extra it does make a difference I maybe I'm just clutching at straws but. Again, they don't have to be great. They just have to be a little better on defense and they were they were a five hundred team or close to a five hundred team when they had stafford of your even given how kind of mediocre the defense was and I also think benefit playing in a division that's wide open. We'll get to the packers. But I. Don't think it's one of the stronger divisions in the league. So that'll help is well. I'm I'm on the line. You know I'm on the lines train with you. That won't end what? Okay. So the final team you pick to improve Oh, actually got anything. Did. You see the niners Sign Table Austin by the way. It's gotta be I just cannot wait for the quote Austin is x factor to finally. Workout years after the fact now that he is. Like potentially in the perfect scheme for his skills. If he could go back in time get like the the coming out of College Austin theus scheme awesome tremendous twenty, twenty, five on Austin like are they going to sign Percy Harvard to you know what Dude don't don't say it because you know. He's GonNa like cow's laid. The first jet sweep he gets it's going to be so exciting. To two thousand fifteen grams fans. Okay. To fourteen I don't know. What it feels like a longtime, it does feel like a long time ago. I actually don't WANNA spend a ton of time talking about this last time you pay because I've spent so much time saying the exact same thing and that's Dallas. You know unlucky last year all the underlying metric said they were an elite offense with average. Defense. There's no reason to think this offense won't be even better this season on Dak Prescott revenge tour questions about the defense but ultimately, it probably doesn't matter because the offense is so good. We'll let me ask you I'll flip in a different way we'll talk about it this way. If the cowboys do disappoint if let's say they go eight again they go seven to nine and seven. End Up as one of the top teams in the NFC what do you think would have happened? I think that Dak Prescott will have broken his leg that would be my I. Guess Second Guess I could see defense being. Bad. I could see like we don't know what to expect out of Mike Nolan who was not who is not great in a slot but that was a long time ago granted and he's been linebacker coach and some pretty good teams since then reserving judgment. Secondary Ton of question. Marks. Zero. Pass rushed. And you know the counting on these linebackers comeback season in Jalen Smith and L. V.. So I could see definitely a universe in which they're below average at Tibet can I ask you a question that related to your? Upcoming job with the NFL live television program. Do you think if that Prescott breaks his leg that it will be a Tonya harding esque a attack by our colleague Dinner Lousy I that you're gonNA think Andy Dalton and was envisioning Andy wearing a little burglar working together out of the I gotta say Anti Look Great in a cowboys uniform all the photo and he must have been so relieved as a redhead to finally no longer we're at orange put on that blue and look in the mirror and think finally a complimentary color I. Look Great. I will not dignify your other question with an answer but. I will introduce a couple of other teams that thought I was like thinking might be in this column okay. Pittsburgh. Yes I think Pittsburgh will be better this year. I. Think. The tough part is you figure they're getting Ben Bigger back their offense was total trash last year they did force a crazy crazy amount. That you. So to me I think they're going to be better, but it's not like you're going to get the twenty, seventeen, twenty, thousand, eighteen offense and the twenty one, thousand defense. If you do there are super bowl contender because that's going to be a phenomenal football team but I think you get a little bit step back from the defense and you do get an improvement on the. Offense but hey, there's also no guarantee that Ben Rothlisberger doesn't get hurt again I mean this is a guy who even when he did not have a dramatic injury was a guy who you'd expect to pursue game or two each year, and he's now in his thirties that is the team that really should a quarterback death I mentioned Detroit earlier but that is the one that. Needed to sign someone like Colin Kaepernick okay, and then the other team I just wanted to I'm not sure I think this but I kind of want to throw out there because I imagine some listeners might be saying it out loud. Arizona is a very popular team to improve. Now I my case against him is the Hell Scape Division. So what is your? Why would they not make your called? Mission goes a long way for sure I. think that's a big big part of it the numbers say they expect to improve a little bit. There were six in ten last year by expected wins five ten in one by the real number. So you might expect them to improve little bit but I just. You know I there are some things about that team I. Don't Love I. Think the Secondary Beyond Patrick Peterson is still questions Buddha Baker is while I don't WanNa throw ours. But you know Some questions Peterson kind of now, and he came back last year. Thrown that out there too. That's my voice I used when I'm not ready to. Say something but I also think it's true. That might be the Patrick Peterson come to Seattle next year when you're a free agent now that's the. Honorary is Todd Gurley Goodwood. which you remember from two, thousand, seventeen, fifty. And I just you know this is eighteen then. Simmons and on paper, the idea of what is agents can do is awesome. I have not seen a lot of NFL teams make the best use out of players and skill set and then includes in years past the cardinals who granted. Yes. Do Advance. Joseph Joseph is not necessarily the guys who've been the same mistakes in the past, but I just WanNa see Isaiah Simmons, do everything. He is seemingly capable of doing at the NFL level in a coherent scheme before minus. Okay. This is a real difference maker because. The NFL is not that smart. They're not always that great with getting the most guys who have versatile skill sets and I think you know brignoles might be a better defensive coordinator than a lot of people who are running and they'll defense defenses right now..

NFC West: Who will unseat the 49ers?
"So glad to be joined by Candace Silva of the rams wire as we go around the NFC west try to figure out who's going to unseat the forty Niners if they can be unseeded at the top of the division cam covers the the rams the rams who apparently are the hot bat right now to win the Superbowl at thirty to one what the hell's going on their camp yeah apparently they were the most popular Super Bowl bet of the last I think there's some were the bachelor come in anywhere on the rams won the Superbowl which is surprising because they've done nothing in the past okay two months to really bolster their claim as a Super Bowl contender in it's been a rough offseason for them so they got a bounce back in to see them as a Super Bowl favorite or not people will favor but to see so many people jumping on the bandwagon for them to win the Superbowl surprising I mean obviously they were just in the Super Bowl now might about a decade ago by our current time frame standards but it was two seasons ago and they still have the same quarterback they still have the same head coach where has it gone wrong we know what happened last year it in fact but if if people are buying in why would you say don't hi this is biggest issue right now I was really surprised that they essentially ignored the the office of identity try to remake it or bring in much talent really on the opposite line this offseason they refinance or what works best it brought back Austin blight who could play guard and center I'm so really they're sticking with the same group that they had last year there's a lot of competition really the only position that sat on the opposite wanted at left tackle with what danger what work right but the other four spots where they're gonna be competitions with Bobby Evans and rob Stein at right tackle Austin Blake and Bryan Alexander in the guard position is kind of just a mishmash of players who are relatively unproven at the NFL level so I would say that's the biggest issue switching Todd Gurley out for can makers they hope is going to be an upgrade at least hopefully in the in the explosiveness department because we do the regular Todd Gurley last season and he kind of seems like he's past his prime with the old me injury in right usage so they hope that with the improved often combined with these guys developing the younger guys and then a a better run game they're going to hopefully get back to their roots from the twenty seventeen twenty seventeen to twenty eighteen season that also supplying plan doesn't seem like a very good one considering that they're in a division with the forty Niners who I don't think I'm being a Homer here by saying that they have a pretty darn good defense of line like that that might not be a good match up for them yeah that's one of the best defensive line principality and you're gonna have it you're gonna have such a us a big mismatch every time that these teams square off because the defense of life for forty third San Francisco so good you got Nick Bosa all the guys on the interior Erik Armstead so there's gonna be tough match ups all across the front when these teams square off twice a year and you're not gonna want to right now in blocking these guys or Bobby Evans are often blight it's it's gonna be a tough match up for all these guys what's M. brings us to the cornerback what what went down with Jared Goff I mean I don't know what it was it all just smoke and mirrors in that Super Bowl season was he figured out I mean there there's been plenty of arguments I've seen a lot of smart people say listen as soon as Matt Patricia showed how to basically not bite on the play action it was game over for the rams they still made the Super Bowl but last year was not great is there any realistic expectation around the rams that they can make it jump now with you know maybe acres and there is the full time running back yeah I I wouldn't say your golf was just smoke and mirrors in twenty eighteen I thought he was a legitimate MVP candidates for most that season and then they kind of have that by the crazy Monday Night Football game against the chiefs and ever since then he's just more grass than not been the same player it was it was he was really terrible on play action last season which was a surprise but again that goes back to the office of line you just didn't have time to to get to a second read he didn't have time to to turn his back to the defense on these armies clashing passes so that a big impact but he's a player who I know they gave them a hundred thirty four million dollars but at this point in his career he doesn't seem like someone who's going to really master the issues of the rest of the offense it's not can overcome terrible off in one place so for him in the rams to really bounce back it's going to take an improvement on the offensive line golf getting back to how he was playing in twenty eighteen and then that running game coming alive and that seems like a lot of that on because it's it's everything coming together as a cohesive unit but I mean with the talent that they do have they still look really good receivers with concocting Robert wood acres and Henderson at running back our promising and golf if he if he lives up to his contracting really pleased the way the FHS quarterback showed the ram should bounce back nicely I like Henderson he came out of Memphis right yep yep he he really was under utilized last year yeah they were kind of well I wouldn't say stubborn sticking with elderly but he just didn't get many opportunities but when he did when he did get some chances he showed his show computer production yeah if you could once against the forty Niners last season to worry bounced off a few tackles and I mean he he's a smaller guy he runs hard and he he he also I'm interested to see how they utilize them with Cammy Kerr's

"A recent interview with a radio station in Houston former line glow over Quinn said the former head coach Jim Caldwell had established a culture change in the organization but the players have fully bought into before the team brought in Matt Patricia's head coach in two thousand eighteen ask for whether it's a concern that so many former players like Quentin Darius slay have spoken out recently against Patricia GM Bob Quinn on a conference call with reporters today says he really doesn't believe so in fact he said that a number of players had their agents contact the lions about wanting to play for Patricia this offseason

Why won't NFL teams hire minority coaches?
"Three head. Coaching spots have been filled this week. But none of those. Three coaches were minorities while the Rooney rule has been followed. Some are beginning to believe that minority forty candidates are not being taken seriously for the open jobs and anonymous African American. NFL Assistant Coach said that the League has quote finally shown. It's not the place as for black men to advance. It's ridiculous it's disgusting. We can sell tickets and make plays but we can't lead Shannon. Why isn't the Rooney rule role working? Well I think until skip this diversity thing yeah. Diversity is a great great to talk about but until you get someone the leadership position that says you know what. I don't just want to talk about it. I want to be about it so until you get older ships that actually wants to put some substance to this and this is what that you're GonNa get now if the general manager there's one general manager that's what minority and that's CR- Chris greer in Miami. There's zero owners that are it shouldn't say minorities. I guess because shot con radically a minority. But when you get the gist of what I what. I'm trying to say until leadership gets more diverse. You're I'm not gonNA have a more diverse hiring background skills. This was puzzling to be. Is that Eric. Enemy has the exact Zac job that Matt Nagy had negative and call plays any recall. Please man they can get the job. Doug Peterson sedinko plays true. Recall to play around Rivera's on but Ron Rivera was not the defensive coordinator in Philly. He he became a D. coordinator what's he got to the D. Coordinator in Chicago. You are you in San Diego. Yeah but he got his getting these enter coaching tree. Eric B enemy has the exact same job. That Matt Nagy Doug Peterson has and he's not getting opportunity is spirit but this. I don't really think that they go into it. Unless you incentivize this. Okay if you how minorities kill we maybe you have an extra three to five five dollars and cap space. That's the only thing that resonates with these owners because I get it skipped if I spent three billion. Let's just say I spent three billion dollars for a restaurant run. You Go tell me what the hell I need to cook. Cook whatever I WanNa Cook it there. And that's how they look at it. Jerry Jones spent money for this. This this mind you oh tell me why should get killed but but this notion that Oh and they brought Muhiba Marvin Marvin Lewis. He brought him in to to do that. Situation wasted the same with the giants the giants they had irebi enemy. They what Joe Judge Chris Rashard Rashard. Excuse me Chris Restoring. Yeah so now. Now we're down to one. Vacant Cleveland Reunion. I'm talking about how good already know. Angle get no frills JAYCO network skill. He already interviewed there. So you would now now the take my name off the leader and solid rubber solid. Take my name off the list. Because he's GonNa get Mad Max two and a half years if you're lucky that seems to instead that's all Jimmy can stomach now if you look at it they keep these. You look at Mike Patton. You look at all the guys they've had and these guys have had I think. Hugh Jackson stayed the longest at two and a half years. But everybody's been two years the list huge only two and a half two and a half long but you get you get these other guys you get pretty kitchens and you look at patent and you look at a I forget. Just give all these one year jazz. WE ACHE AAC CLEVELAND. That in Cleveland of the North this skill ruining rules a joke. I get it. You know minorities Cadillac. An affirmative action thanksgiving. Yeah but in -firmative action. I guess it's federal dollars. You'RE NOT GONNA get the money if you don't do this. The NFL is a is a private entity. So what can you do. What Ki- what can you give? Nfl Do not the so. I have been tracking this for a long time because one of my best friends is John. Wooten who is now the retired leader of the Fritz Pollard. Alliance and he was the driving force behind instituting the Rooney rule as I hiring practice in the national shirow all league and John's point from the start was I just need interviews because if a young assistant coach gets interviewed a couple of times times it gets reported in his name gets out there and if another owner sees that name enough over maybe a couple of years hiring cycles else maybe an owner says chee that guy. He's getting a lot of interviews. Maybe I should bring in. Maybe I should be more open minded to him. But if you're GONNA curse because if I get a a lot of interviews and I'm not getting hired was wrong why here the me getting hired cave liability with that. But John's point in the end was I'd rather have interviews than not have interests. Okay okay so let's go back to the stat that I use last week. The Institute of Diversity and Ethics In sports twenty nine thousand nine racial and gender report card for the National Football Bali. The League got actually an a plus for hiring of color. Assistant coaches right a sit a plot. Oh that's progress right. It got a deep loss for hiring head coach of Color White eight-plus assistance d-plus head head coaches. There's a big disconnect there and it shows you. That owners are fine. Oh hire two or three black assistant fine with that but nope nope. I don't want to head coach to be black. Right gives quite to the restaurant you can cook. You'll be in the bank but Michelle not the bridge. I roll up now okay so when I texted back and forth last we can use this last week of John Wooten just beside himself now. He is devastated by this this development his point was that only one. GM Chris Grin Miami. Point out is use. John's word heartbreaking because it could start with the GM right a black GM of or of color could be more open minded to say to the owner. Hey listen this guy is really bring him in. Let me let me introduce him to you right. The conduit to the owner can be stronger. Iran have I don't know six or eight black. GM right right. We've had them around the league four or but all of a sudden there's a dearth to rape Barma with Barma within Cleveland. He'd Gone Rick Smith who I know very well be in Denver. He interviewed for The Washington. Ashington John Daniel Snyder said head coach could be a head coach. Basically general manager after the Washington like who are the head coaching after the draft. The General Mattis. Okay so sometimes there is group think or shink sheep among the owners because in the end they do want to win right. And if they're looking around the League league and that black head coaches really successful they say well I want one of those. I want to go that direction right well. There was one black head coach who started to have success late in the year ear and he happened to be allied with Chris. Clear in Miami and Brian Floors off the Patriots. Well they started out all time badge for about what seven seven games fifty. Nine seven opening renders and then they basically it felt like they turned the whole roster iside down which they needed to do and then all of a sudden the last nine games they go five and four they upset the eagles and then they went to foxborough and just basically ended the season. I thought for the new New England Patriots playoff teams right. Okay so all the sudden Brian floor floor with the help of Chris greer. They're having big success. It looks like it's headed in the right drug us us but it wasn't enough of a splash to create momentum through the hiring process and right because John Wooden again texted me back with so many names he said we have so many in the pipeline. Who already started with Eric? B Enemy and Chris Rock. I think Chris Shaw Bad Year on defense but when I watch him interviewed when I watch his body language. It's a stunt man he's he's got. CEO Written all over him. He looks like a commanding officer to me. There's not enough black head coaches skip. Because because you look you look at Mike McCarthy guest job he hires the guy that gave him his opportunity coordinator fifteen years ago so you see the circle. We'll skip once you become a head coach. What do you do you go to the combine? You go to say elbow you got your drake. He goes to the coaches meeting and Yada Yada Yada and to connect with the boom boom boom right right. So if I'm not in that Lou. How do I get into loops? Because a rid of staff they said eighty percent of the jobs are never posted so in other worth people get hired somebody a friend or family member is not what you know who you know There in live the roof. It does house so to finish John. Bruton's list of pipeline candidates being AMEE. Chris Rashard Robert Sala. He threw Jim Caldwell on his list. Is Jim Colwell was highly successful zestful. Jim called wheel lost his jaw. Going nine and seven in two years Matt Patricia has nine total win and he's still got a job now he goldwell still doesn't have another job he in four years. He went to the playoffs twice in the last year he went nine and seven and they said well you know we need to move in a different direction. uh-huh and the guy that's replaced has yet to win nine total games in two years. Do you still own a still on the clock. Okay Steve wilks got one shot in time. I'm one year in Arizona and he was gone. He's now the defensive coordinator in Cleveland which probably didn't help his cause this year that much but I don't hear his name no in Cleveland right right on the list. And then there's Terrel Austin who's young stripes potential star coach and John Wootton into his list with Marvin Lewis who he thinks deserves a second shy right. Okay so Jerry. Jones did observe in qualified for the Rooney rule by bringing in. I Marvin Lewis. I think Jerry was shrewd operating waiting there. Because he didn't pick a young like like Chris Rashard type interview him because of Jerry had interviewed a young potential upcoming head. Black coach right. There's more pressure on Jerry. What was wrong with right? What's the problem exactly? He went to Marvin Lewis because he thinks Marvin Lewis is kind of old news right right. He got his longtime time shot in Cincinnati. Listen I still think Marvin did a good job job seriously. Yes okay he went. Oh and seven in the playoffs but still it was Andy Dalton Alton you re you with covering the NFL and you remember what Cincinnati before. Marlene got there was John. Carter number one overall. You Got David Cleland with the fourth. The fourth picket. You got big day to day and Wilkerson purse around the second pick in the draft year after year after a year people. Forget what I know. Marvin didn't win a playoff game. But they weren't even getting close to the playoffs for Marvin got there. No so I was disappointed in Jerry because you know my heart Hartz.

Hot Seat Szn: The NFL Coaching Carousel
"Dan You talked about. How if it's only been a year? Sometimes a team will say. Let's give this guy a chance to turn things around. But it's been a couple of years in in Detroit with Matt Patricia. Why do you think that team came out before black Monday? And said we're going to hang onto him despite the fact that he's one In two seasons as many games as Jim Caldwell one in a single season before he was fired in Detroit I think the key is bob coined the GM right he comes from New England. He gets rid of Caldwell he goes and six out Patricia who knows from New England and he has sold ownership on. We can build this thing. Long-term here's what Martha firestone foreign said about her decision to bring back both former patriots quote. We expect to be a playoff contender. We expect to play meaningful games in December as she's referring bring to next season when she brings him back whatever he's told them about here are signs that it can work. They've bought whether they're correct or not. I think you know the former New England crew. That's running the Detroit. Lions has convinced Detroit Lions Ownership. Here's why this can work here. We're sorry it hasn't worked right away but two years isn't long enough. Give us another chance. And we'll see how much does the GM matter when we're looking at these teams in trying to evaluate whether or not they're going to move on from their head coach well matters a lot. It commensurate a couple of different ways one. How tied together are they did the GM hire the coach? And right now when when Quinn goes Detroit cold wells already there. You figure we'll cold well. It's not going to last because Quinn's GonNa WanNa bring in his own Guy Lo and behold that happen happen so if you are the guy that the GM hired that might help you if you are the guy that GM hired but it's going poorly and you're the the first guy the GM hired then. Recent history has shown us that you are the one in trouble and the GM is not there are coaches out. There that will tell you that. GM sits in the owner's box. He talks to the owner all game. He's the voice he hears while the coaches are down there on the field losing and it's pretty easy for the GM that kind of position himself. Like hey this isn't my fault. Let's make a change and try it another either way. I do think there are situations where you see more and more around the league where it goes in the other direction where. The coach kind of picks up in San Francisco. John Lynch came because Kyle Shanahan wanted wanted him in Buffalo Brandon. Beane came because Sean McDermott wanted him so I like that. Formula Teens are using now or they get the coach. I coach brings in mm somebody. He knows he can believe in. They understand the salary cap in the same way and can do all that administrative stuff together. I think that's that's a formula that looks like it's working in a few spots.

Chiefs hang onto perfect record thanks to last-minute comeback vs. Lions
"Let's start with the chiefs patch genuine this we can then Detroit. We gotTA GOTTA get into this trump to the fourth quarter undo to play. He's down by three four at the name. mahomes scrambles fifteen yards for the crucial first down later in the drive. Dr Daryl Williams punches it in from the won his second score of the day cheese. Take the four point lead one last shot for the Lions who played well yesterday yesterday but Matthew Stafford's hail. Mary is knocked down chiefs. Hold onto win thirty four thirty to remain undefeated undefeated can't even start with you. How were the chiefs able to rally for this win against Detroit. It starts with the back to back gold ago. Situations wasted where the chiefs defense was able to stand up and force turnovers yet crystals fumble recovery and you had to be shot Berlin fumble recovery which ended up being a touchdown. Everybody on the Detroit lines offense was asleep at the wheel. Nobody decided to finish the play. There wasn't a whistle blown ended up putting six on the board so that's where it starts for me but when you look at yesterday's game the Detroit Lyons had an opportunity to win that game they had an opportunity to take control of it because for the first half of that football game the lions defense played pretty well against the Kansas City chiefs offense. I mean you saw some of the things that Matt Patricia was doing some of the bracket coverages on Travis Kelsey. You'll Sammy Watkins a lot of men coverages to eliminate those open window throws. They tried to make it tough on Padma home so when you look at that defense they did their job. The Detroit lions offense didn't do their job and that's where it starts. You've got to be able to capitalize on those back back to back possessions with Golda. Go to stem the tide to put momentum in your favor and dictate the complexion of that second half. They didn't put the chiefs away when they had an opportunity tremendous point is for is Detroit's Defense and Matt Patricia Defensive Coordinator in Kansas City. I'm doing plan against Kansas City last couple years. You can believe he made a phone call in that first. Half Game Plan looked a lot like the first half Game Plan New England has had against Kansas City and the two times that they were able to hold Patty mahomes down amount so that right there that was very very good Detroit. I believe is a better football team that NFC north. I believe now might be the best division. F- F- Detroit is the worst team. Let's see Minnesota is going to do but tremendous tremendous playmaking by the defense I see I don't mind if you have a bad defense. If you're GONNA have a historic offense you gotta be either. Get to the quarterback or you got a bill to make plays force turnovers interceptions in fumbles and in this game those turnovers what were they were to save him with you. Give Patty mahomes just enough just like Aaron Rodgers in this prime if you give him just enough time on that clock they they are going to march down the field in those two minutes situations in score because you can't do enough things defensively if you give them that chance but the chiefs chiefs defense you gotta give them credit. They made just enough plays that the offense was able to add to be able to steal this win because the offense oddly was the part that was holding the chiefs back early in this game you mentioned the lions turnovers and those were critical turnovers in the most critical spots but the chiefs themselves fumbled the the ball four times and lost three of them. The chiefs had three fumbles lost throughout this football game that stymied their own drives and this for me. Detroit deserves a lot of credit for playing as well as they did holding that chiefs offense. I know they scored thirty four points but one hundred yard touchdown return. You'll the chiefs offense to twenty seven. That's about as much as you can. Ask Your defense do held them debt. Winnie for the first fifty nine and a half minutes until the touchdown at the end but on the chiefs side of things good teams lose this football game great teams find a way to win the Kansas. City chiefs didn't play well. They turn the ball over a bunch of times. Pat MOMS missed you. Were right about the coverage. I totally agree for the first time this this season the chiefs you could see. They really miss tyreek. Hill Damarcus Robinson didn't have a huge Game Sammy Watkins Nabet huge game. They could use tyreek Hill and Patrick. MOANS missed some early passes asses were guys were open but in the ball back two and a half minutes left down three even when they get to a fourth and eight. Patrick Mahomes sees the right play way to make goes and runs and makes it is similar last year against Baltimore in a game. The chiefs didn't play well and Patty didn't play great for the nine that when he threw a pass tyrod kill this this when he ran himself the most critical play after that and the drive the one that put them inside the five yard line he finds Byron Pringle for his second career catch which one of eight people to catch passes Kansas City right now. They're playing their opponent every week and they're playing the Patriots record like there's there's two teams the league that are foreign oh Kansas City in New England and if you you give away a game like this if we do think the pats are going to be fourteen into and we know how important in theory homefield event could be then all of a sudden your plan from behind the eight ball so despite not playing a great game despite Patrick Mahomes for only the fourth time in his career not throwing a touchdown pass the chiefs found a way to win against previously undefeated team on the road in Detroit Kenny the same way the Patriots were able to expose their the the rams a little bit last year. Is there something to the fact that the lines did the same with the chiefs yesterday sort of put out there a game plan of how to do it and how to get to the chiefs. I mean they he did keep Patrick Mahomes from scoring a touchdown Jimmy. It's a Copycat League and Pat Mahomes was working on a street of fourteen consecutive games where he had two touchdowns or more thrown. I mean he's one shy of Peyton Manning's all time record at some point. Pat Mahomes is going to clips that record but when you start talking about the Kansas City chiefs offense. It's not a matter of if it's just a matter of win and so when you look at twenty three games sample size that we have as pat mahomes being the starting quarterback in that offense you recognize. You're not going to win a game against them. Twenty one seventeen you're going to have to to be able to score some points and that's why you have a razor thin margin of error when it comes to red zone possessions and that's why I go back to those two possessions that the Lions had in the beginning of the second half Accu- have to be able to capitalize on those plays if you don't eventually Kansas City is going to make the requisite plays to be able to win the game now as far as the game plan that Matt Patricia employed. I think it's good for the Kansas City chiefs offense to struggle like this against that game plan so you're young quarterback develops answers when he sees those looks later in the season and as we get to the

That's what we're going to get my last last question <hes> there was that famous picture sure of last year's practice when you guys were outside in the snow which i enjoyed. You like practicing outside more than you practice inside. Even if playing an inside game is that is there like something more that you can teach outside. Surely is a practice <hes>. Does it sink in more. If you're outdoors as opposed to inside yeah i mean i think i just love being outside most of the time in my world it's seventeen fluorescent so i don't really get out there that much unless we're in practice and think you know we can go out there and practice safely. There's a lot that goes into it about being on the grass as opposed to to the turf and <hes> you know certainly i think that point the year we still had to outdoor games <hes> that definitely could have been pretty severe weather so just took a good opportunity to practice in it before we got in it for for the first time and didn't know how to respond but we moved on from all that i think we're we're good just trying to practice right record.

There are 17 Networks covering the NFL: When is enough enough?
"The NFL draft Howard, even covering the NFL for many years. We're talking about the NFL coverage in in how they're seventeen networks now covering the NFL is is possible to have too much coverage. I don't know. Too much. I really don't because the public is who determines it? Sure. And the public and the public is just has an insatiable appetite for this stuff. And you know, a lot of the interviews that I've been doing this week and last and talking about how the draft has come. I was on the first broadcast for ESPN in nineteen eighty and then in what is now it's another world, and, but you know, with the draft of the coverage on the internet and the mock drafts and all that I say the number of there are it's just crazy. It's over the top. But yet the people love them people didn't want them and read them and talk about them. Then no one would do. And so that's what drives it all. And so as long as the public watches, then that's going to be the key. We'll be interesting this year with a third network doing doing something totally different ABC's and the other two to see what kind of traction they get with the competition. But. Like, I said, it just seems that whatever it is football related with the NFL people. Just can't get enough of it. We get to the drafts of interesting news today regarding Josh Gordon and now New England Patriots. How does the Josh Gordon movie end? Yeah. I don't think anybody knows the answer to that one. Probably the person who knows the answers Josh court. And so that's the thing about it. And so the patriots are. You know, what's this all about when he was suspended during last season? Everyone's Josh, Gordon. But you know, who don't censor? The patriots are figuring. Hey, we retain the right? If it gets his act together, then we've got him eat annot now signing that tender that money counts against the cat. Now. Of course, when you have a cabinet as high as it is another two million dollars, isn't that big a deal, and obviously you get paid a dime unless he's on the roster. And so I would think though that the patriots wouldn't have done this in less. They were getting some good reports about where Josh Gordon is with his life since. The suspension came down. Whatever last November. I guess. Early December that here it is. It's been several months, and they must have some I would think inclination or insight that says that he might be available at some point this season. But we'll wait and see. But like I said an answer to your question. I don't think anybody knows that answer. Howard. Please tell me that you don't believe that the Oakland riders are going to take a quarterback at four. I I don't think they should. But you know, like. You can never say never. I mean, that's that's the thing about the draft. And I often said this is that we all whether we talk about the draft to write about it. Whatever it is. We should eliminate the word unexpected or surprise from vocabulary. Because there's there's no such thing as a surprise when it comes to the NFL draft. And that's just the reality guys couple years ago. If I was on the allows on your show two nights before the draft. And I said I'm going to predict that the Kansas City. Chiefs are going to trade up to number ten and Patrick Mahomes. And you probably would have sent someone to my house to have to have my brain tested wondering if I if I totally lost my mind, and yet that would happen. And so that's why you just never know. And of course, the the raiders situations different than the chiefs. They had a quarterback that was getting up there in years. The raiders have still pretty young guy who you should be able to build something really good around. But that doesn't mean that Jon Gruden Mike may I don't have some crazy scenario cockpit where they just might might take one and they signed several others in the off season surprise in another guy. I would be crazy to do that in the first round. Maybe at the end of the first round there's someone sitting there that they can beat developed. But if they take someone early I think that that would be a little crazy. But that doesn't mean that I dismissed it as being a possibility of happening Howard. Is there a team in the top ten that you can see frightening out of their current spot and accumulating additional picks? I think there several teams that would like to trade out the question is. And then the jets have been a team in a lot of people talked about because you know, this is this is a draft. It's pretty strong and defensive players. There's gonna be a bunch of defensive lineman that going to top five ten and so teams trading down know that they're still going to get a really good player if they trade down a few spots, the key is who wants to trade up. And what are they looking for? I would think that the team I like to in some respects. I liked the draft to come to be especially when there's that many good players, especially if you need a defensive lineman now up to get one of those quarterbacks as we're talking about the trade up two years ago with Mahomes, we had to bear trade up at spot San Francisco to get Mitchell Trubisky we have buffalo trading Josh Allen. So. If one of these teams wants a quarterback and has their mind set on a certain one, then we could see a trade like that in the top ten and again, no one really knows what these teams are thinking. But if they're like I said if there's a team that has identified one of these quarterbacks than that. That's that's the position that certainly were trading up for if you wanna get you wanna get a guy sticking with the quarterback team doesn't seem to be really rated as a high quarterback challenged draft. But which team Indo which quarterback is going to screw everybody fix up by grabbing somebody early in. Yeah. That's that's a really good question. And obviously what the cardinals do will set the stage for what happens after that. And they do take Tyler Mary than I think we're going to see three other quarterbacks. Maybe a fourth goal in the first round the question is where will it be? Will it be Denver? Will it be? My aunt. Will it be Washington? I mean, those are all pretty good possibilities for a team taking a quarterback. I think it's still pretty good draft for quarterbacks. And so, you know, yes, there's not a guy that you just automatically say is going to be in a Pro Bowl in a couple of years. But I think I several of these guys with the right situation. The right coaching the coaching staff and the right team around him. I think they have the chance to be very good players talking to Howard Walser NFL draft two nights from now. Progressive insurance guest line here Spey nation radio Howard. It's never been Bill. Bell checks MO to trade up. But with the retirement of rob gronkowski that the tight end out of Iowa Hawkins sent a lot of people are talking about would be a great replacement. He may go. Hi, people saying even top ten pick possibly could you see Bella check making a move with with Matt Patricia in Detroit to try to move up to Hopkinson. I think we could see him try to move up getting metal from thirty two to eight is probably wait too far to go. Okay. The patriots have a lot of ammunition a bunch of extra of other picks the second third round. But to give up that many to give up what you have to give up that far. I think would be very very difficult. But it can who knows who knows when Hawkins middle go. I I'm you know yet. You're right. He could go that early or he, you know, obviously, he might not. And I think they've obviously there's certainly looking at the tight end very closely. And there's you know, they they might feel. We can stay where you are. And then, but if someone is still sitting there when you get into the twenty well that would be the place to make a move because it's not going to be as costly. As like, I said, I can't even imagine what it would take to move up twenty four spots. Because if you're the lions and all you need, then to trade down that is is pretty crazy. You make that move and then moved back up because of the hall you've gotten from the patriots. But still move out of the top ten and get a player that can really come in and help your football team. I would not be the greatest move for the

That's for sure finally the lions one of the five teams that can be forced to appear on hard knocks this season. But they appear to be doing everything they can do the flex the show to another team cigarettes into Matt Patricia what Matt Patricia thinks about it. I think Jon Gruden is an excellent choice for that show. I think you Oakland, Raiders and everything that got going on right now would be fantastic viewing for everybody to watch. He doesn't want anything. He's a former patriot. He knows his stuff garbage responded to petition comments and attacks to ESPN Paul Sierras writing O, I do not like that. They have a team has to do this. I think it's a colossal distraction. It almost always correlates with a bad season. It's just it's the part of your season while you're trying to put everything together and establish your culture, you show these guys getting cut granite. I love the show rate show. Yeah. But the fact that teams are forced to do with. It's the lions the raiders the forty Niners giants and Redskins, and they can't say, no, I love Gordon Ramsay, but I wouldn't want my stepson who's a chef to have to work for Gordon Ramsay. I can be entertained with something on television, not wanted to be part of my life. Like a hard knocks is wildly entertaining. I want don't want my football teams involved with it. I don't like it. They have to do it. And I get with petitions doing. But I also do not think that the raiders would be the ones that do. They don't even know where they're going to be playing on top of everything else. You're gonna you don't even know what you're going to play your games. Now, you've got hard knocks there. I honestly don't think the NFL is going to do that this year for that reason. There's there's too much going on there. But. Good heard line today. Thank you that may have been your best that was just all sorts of stuff, you you were just props away from setting a new standard in the industry. There is very good. Hopefully, my next. A lot of heat on you their joy with the news. Well, that's the news. Thanks for stopping by. Okay. Heard push our get in here. I don't even understand this. I do this is Chris Bruce are the voice of NBA this network that trusted ambassador basketball on this show. Okay. First of all, let's address I like Brian win horse. You know, Brian win. I know Brian. I think Brian is a very good job. He's a fine reporter. And generally if he says something he's not making crap up. Okay. Jason taylor. Okay. So I have always said. The way to rebuild his way. The Celtics are doing they didn't tank. They were competitive they hired a good coach they drafted. Well, they went all the traits. So they're doing it. Right. But I'm gonna say something right now. I think what's happening in the NBA is rebuilding. His crap Boston now, all this rebuilding. Gordon? Hayward doesn't fit Kyrie's hurt. And now Jason Tatum wants to be the face of the franchise is that while the franchises patient players are no longer patient. Well, it's tough to be on two different timetables. So you've got Cairo serving our Horford Gordon Hayward and so on and they are trying to win. Now. They're veterans who want to win a championship. Now. Did you've got young guys like Jayson Tatum? Jalen Brown so on and so forth. And I'm telling you when you're a young guy your number one priority is to.

You know, hasn't really got anything going all day on offense and snuck out of the pocket, and and so on they're really just got slide and play the next play just trying to make too much happens. We'll Stafford ended with one hundred and ninety nine yards zero touchdowns zero interceptions. Carrie Johnson the leading rusher with just thirty seven yard. On twelve carries Marvin Jones six catches for sixty six yards in the game. After the game head coach. Matt Patricia was asked if losses like this can affect the psyche of his players tough guys. You know, they're mentally tough guys physically. Tough guys they go to work every day. We understand that the games aren't easy. It's very difficult. And doesn't matter. We got a game coming up this week. We gotta get ready for them. We gotta go back to work. So that's our mindset. It's gotta be our mindset. There's really no other options. There's no other choice. Well that game that he mentioned is in Chicago next week. Another big division game on the
Wide receiver Golden Tate heading from Lions to Eagles
"By the way. I like the eagles getting golden Tate. I liked that moved you like that move. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, look they've certainly had a need some skill position difference makers they've taken those hits at the running back position. Obviously, they they went through the early parts of the year without alshon Jeffery and some of the depth issues at the receiver position came to light. And so the idea of adding Golden State, I think certainly makes sense. He's he's tough. He's a competitor. Somebody who's got championship experienced having been on those Seahawks teams. And so I know the lions were wild about the idea of parting with golden tape because in so many different ways he fits what Matt Patricia is looking for. In fact, I talked to somebody there is yesterday. Who said we need more guys like golden Tate here. So certainly, you know, it's gonna cost you something to get Golden State out of the out of the Detroit organization. I think the eagles giving up a three shows how they value him. I certainly like it from the standpoint that you're giving your young quarterback another weapon to work with and the guy who I think from a Roma system and a program standpoint, really fits is a competitor. And a guy who's a fighter and a heady player. All right. Good stuff. Wanna thank Albert Breyer Monday morning quarterback for coming by to trading deadline. Few more hours. Thanks, albert. All right. Thanks. I'll be sure to catch live editions of the heard weekdays at noon eastern, nine AM Pacific on Fox Sports radio affects one and the iheartradio app.
Odell Beckham Jr. doesn't know if Eli Manning is reason for the New York Giants' struggling offense
"Gonna take over just short of their own thirty yard line to start. Also, an interesting game going on in Cincinnati today where the dolphins have the ball. And today might be an interesting sort of introduce yourself right on right on for the Miami Dolphins because they go through and nobody really believes it. But some eyebrows are raised and then they go into New England. And everyone went well that'll be that'll be the end of that. And it very very clearly wise. But I still am not one hundred percent. Sure. Like, I don't think the dolphins were as good as three an hour. I don't think they were as bad as they were doing the last week. And with the way Cincinnati's played at three and one. I think today will be a day that we learned some things about the dolphins. Yeah. Because this is in a turnover tight defense. Cincinnati. I think I think that they are going to pose a decent threat. This game is in Cincinnati today. And so the dolphins have a hill to climb here. Ten they do it. I always look at the first four games of the season. And we're just on the other side of that now and people have all these really rash opinions about what they've seen through the first quarter of this season. Anybody who knows football knows this. Nobody sees in his loss in the first four games. We gotta get through this hump this no October into November tumble where we get to see who is persevering we've seen it many times. Also, you can sneak into the playoffs with a lower record and make a ton of noise in January. So a lot to be learned about all these teams. Okay, James Connell. With the first score the day. He's gonna pop in from five yards out for the Steelers. What I don't know. After review is whether or not it's going to stand it's going to be closed as to whether or not the knee was down before he reached across the goal line. Also, it looked like Detroit just scored a touchdown. However, I think of flag just called it back, and it was Kenny golladay, which means it really ticks me off because I've got Kenny in bulk leagues. And so this just ruined my breakfast right here. Kenny golladay from fifty yards out. Beautiful cats in the end zone. Touchdown. No, just kidding. There's a flag may have been a hold may have been a whole. I'll say, yeah. I liked this spot for the lions today. You don't like this spot for the lines today? Producer lee. I'm sorry. No. I love the Packers. You know? I love me some Green Bay. You know, I love me all the folks up in Wisconsin. I just think this is a rough spot for Green Bay today there to one and one they're very banged up. They're not clicking. Emma lions at one in three and at home are going to be a desperate football team. And hey, Mike McCarthy give the ball to Aaron Jones. Those are my things I want to say about this football game outside of Detroit's first game against the jets where they got utterly dominated on both sides of the ball. I I really do respect with Matt Patricia has done there. Because those guys didn't quit and boy, oh boy. Field but Tariq hill game. Yup. I was that was low end around and hill took it all the way down to the thirty yard line of the Jags. However, there was a flag along the way. So not in the backfield. But something tells me this is going to be a block in the back, and this is going to. Yeah. All we gotta hold. This one's coming back, at least part of the way. And we'll redo I down so golladay and hill right out of the gate. Not really. They call it on Sammy Watkins, look when you have wideouts who are willing blockers, you love this stuff, and you really do. But that's Jalen Ramsey who is a physical corner, and he got tied up where walk ins and and on his way down. There was a lot of jersey being held. So that one goes back, and they'll be I in twenty instead of I down on the twenty. We did learn this though hill does not seem bothered by the wet grass. No, he he looks at Justice. Yeah. He. Yeah. Tyreek hill can run folks. I don't know if you've noticed this over a short time, and then F L, but he is extraordinary with the ball in his hand. So that is good news for Kansas City. But again, you know, the running game right there on that play. Just a quick outside. Play nearside Kareem hunt. Tackled with a two yard game. I think this is going to have to be a game where you really aimed to run the ball inside the tackles. Because if you're going to stretch the field left auroras should say east and west instead of going north and south you're going to have those situations where runner is going to have to get feedback under him before he can actually turn up field. Okay. I believe that touchdown. Indeed in Pittsburgh was overturned. So the review shows James Connors elbow. We're looking at the freeze frame right now. By the way, he's not down the one. He's done with a one inch line. Yeah. The knows that ball is shy of the goal line with the elbow down. So here comes third and goal from inside the one. On the nose of the ball is almost already breaking the plane. In fact, when I played center when we had situations like this just to screw with the defense. I would put my feet right next to the ball and extend it into the end zone. You know, obviously, those don't count as touchdowns in James Connor with a leaping run over the middle of the offensive formation Steelers. First blood in there, you go. Yeah. So that's what this game's going to be all about if you don't score on one play. It's okay. You'll score on the next one. We're going to see in Pittsburgh today. And now it's official. The Steelers are on the board six nothing with any PAT try on the way. And that is the first score of the game. There are many more no doubt to calm. Baker mayfield's about to take the field March will also join us next as the cardinals and forty Niners. Get ready for battle in the bay later today. It's red zone radio with Mark and rich on Fox Sports radio. Yes, sir. Brown.
"matt patricia" Discussed on WEEI
"They're probably one of the most talented units in the league. The way they played in the second half last week. They played really well. So I think it's definitely a big challenge for us. You know, but we accepted that you know, we're putting in the work to get ready for, you know, the thing about this week as you know, obviously, not only do they have him. But they've got to they've got Brock. I mean their entire defense of wine is really good. And so, you know, I think with that depth. You know, might alter some of the things we do in kind of change the way we try to attack them. So yes, we're very aware of Aaron Donald in their front this week. All right about five hours up north in San Francisco, actually in Santa Clara, not San Francisco. The forty Niners are going to host the lions this big game for both teams as well. You've got Jimmy Garoppolo coming off his first career defeat had had some had some plays kind of kept the forty Niners in that game. Tried to get him back. Forty Niners are a little bit banged up. But I'm curious to see how the Niners responded in this one. How Jimmy Garoppolo responds in this one facing the lions who looked just absolutely terrible in that Monday night loss against the jet. So this is a big bounce back performance for Matt Patricia again, I said this earlier the show is is Matt Patricia on the verge of getting fired. No, nothing like that. But if they get blown out again today, and it's ugly. It could get really ugly in Detroit also Jon Gruden of the raiders at Denver with the Broncos looking to start to and same thing with with John Gruden. The raiders is Jon Gruden on the hot seat, of course, ninety got a ten year hundred million dollar deal. He's not going anywhere. But again the way that the raiders kind of fell apart on Monday night. This is big early game on the road. You don't want to start off onto especially in the AFC west with the chiefs and the chargers so curious to see how the raiders play in this one. And of course, the game of the day the AFC championship rematch between the Jags and the patriots Leonard fournette not going to play for Jacksonville. But can't wait to see you know, both teams. Hope there's good trash talking. Hope we get to see rob gronkowski. Jalen Ramsey, go. At it going to be a great game coming up in about ninety minutes from now a little little more than ninety minutes patriots and Jags. And then as I said big game tonight Sunday night football NBC Cowboys and the giants. All right. We are scheduled. We'll be joined from NBC sports, Chicago, John Mullin. He covers the bears. They've got big game tomorrow night Monday night football in Chicago at Soldier Field against the Seahawks will. We'll check in with John Mullin. And again, we've got the great, Kate Delaney. Coming up at the top of the hour. We've got the nine early games. Now all going on in the second half. Some good games today. We to Sunday in the NFL. This is sports Sunday on NBC sports radio..
"matt patricia" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Scholar will decide if he'll buy so. John by Ciller whole Jason, Garrett will be the first head coach fired. A lot of people have Jason Garrett on the hot seat. Jerry Jones has always been a fairly patient coach Chan Gailey three years. And that was after a couple of bad seasons. He gave weight Philip several years. Jerry likes to be the headliner. Jerry has more problems with parcels and Jimmy Johnson. He wakes up in the morning and feels like it's not his franchise anymore. Jason GARRETT'S never stolen a headline. And he's also had only one losing season as the Cowboys head coach. They've never been man overboard except one year when Tony Romo got hurt and Declan there yet John sell sell, sell, Jason will not be the first coach fired, Matt, and let me just tell you this that Matt Patricia thing in Detroit that may not last through October that that thing is like visually awful in Detroit. By cellar hold, Matt Ryan is the fifth best quarterback in the NFC south. That's because Ryan fits magic, had an incredible game and people up Cam and breeze folks. Matt Ryan Bridgewater oh, good. Lord people. He's a four time pro bowler. Matt, Ryan record is a starter is ninety five and sixty four. I think we're all forgetting what Matt Ryan inherited. Michael Vick was beloved in that city. The head coach had just quit. They were a mess in Atlanta. He's already taken them to six playoff appearances. They had eight is a franchise before you arrive. John sell sell, sell, Matt Ryan. The second best quarterback in that division drew Brees and there are Sundays he's the best quarterback in that division by cellar hole, the Rams will host the NFC championship game. Well, first of all, this needs to be said they're easily the best roster in the division..
"matt patricia" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"He was trying to be something that he wasn't. And the thing is, is that these veteran guys coach car will was way over here. They kind of liked it. Matt, Patricia is way over here way. They don't like it. So you got to come to. And if if it's going to help us win, I could never stay. I came in Dan Reeves with my coach. I couldn't understand why if I had my helmet, oh, I had to have my chance trip, but what did I wasn't even in the game? I wasn't practice at the time. How does that help me win? Or I consider my helmet. That was what Dan REEs very well. He's about as old hard soul school but see skip every every coach that I had after that was a piece of cake. You were lucky that you didn't have Dan the whole time. I don't know if you would lasted with could've done dealt with this because I came in and got him when I was young, if thing is that I think my you gotta blessed with the practice, but see these veteran guys, they have Jim call. Yeah, he was a certain type of way. Maybe he's a lot easier on the veteran players. Matt Patricia comes in and coach check system. Everybody gets treated the same. Yeah, rookie first year doesn't matter the way I'm going to treat you. Yeah, but the players need to understand. There's a reason why men Patricia's here now you, we might not. You might not agree with why he's here or how he got there, but you got to at least give him a chance. You got to try to buy into some of these principles. You might not like him, but you gotta give them a chance. Now we heard some of this stuff bubble up in OTA the minicamps and when you lose your home over the forty eight seventeen chaos is gonna break out, but I think they gotta give him the benefit of the doubt. This is not nearly long enough, and I know what is taken a pitch in the locker room posted, no social media, skip. How does that help me where to lose game and see. That's what players need to see. I mean, has it helped you win or lose debate. All right. I'm up. Why are you on us too? I'm not why bother me why you follow me on this Raji. Why do bother me? Yeah, you do hear from other people. Stay on my page. Not on your follow. Nobody. Nobody. Nobody in zero, but I believe guilt for me and I know coach, Matt Patricia is trying to do what he's doing. So I'm going to give him the benefit of now. I hold the players because the players got, they got to understand he's doing what he thinks will give them the best opportunity to win games. And I don't think the players have been fair and open minded enough to give him that opportunity. Okay. So to your your big picture point about, let's not overreact just yet. They were seven point home favorites over the jets and they lost forty eight to seventeen. I cannot imagine a more nightmarish debut. No right now to my pet peeve before I get to my real point, but my pet peeve about NFL hiring is help me out here. What qualifies an assistant coat was never been a head coach who's coached only under a great head coach to suddenly become a great head coach elsewhere. What qualifies him what. Experienced does he have running a football team? How about zero? Unless he's been a head college coach somewhere or maybe he's a failed head coach elsewhere in the league, who's commas an assistant, but what qualified Matt Patricia to be the head coach of the Detroit line. Seriously, I ask you look at his resume and show me what qualified him nothing to believe. Jake all the defense. Thank you. It's Bill bell, checks defense, it's his concept. It's his philosophy. You're simply a product of all that philosophy. You've come up under Bill. You are kind of like a son to assure he meant a lot to coach bell check. He took him under his wing and all that, but still Bill bell checks making all the tough defense of calls all the game changers, all the lineup changes on anything that really mattered coach Belichick did it right, correct. Okay. So did Matt Patricia ever have a couple of weeks year we're Bill would say you run the whole show you do the team meetings..
"matt patricia" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"He's under performance contract fans retired, John Harbaugh whose underperforms contract Ozzy news. Now the GM has gone. He was kinda the rock solid guy got Lamar Jackson, who is if nothing else. Interesting. So whenever you have an underperforming quarterback in a really, really interesting new first round, rookie quarterback backing up, you get the situation in Denver fans start shouting, LA mar Lahmar. When your Owen one and your Owen to and you're one in three this, I think I, maybe I got them at four. Maybe I should have them higher number three, Detroit. They've just an annual participant in our dumpster. Hierarchy are dumpster fire. ARCHE is Matt Patricia, gonna work. Does he feel like a head coach? We smart. A lot of guys are smart, Charlie, weis, smart smarts. Not everything. Can you relate to guys to to the to the alpha males in the room by he's a defense gyn, his best players a quarterback. No, I don't know a Matt Patricia to me. That was a story earlier players not necessarily buying into, I don't know. You know, it could have been a blog thing. I got Detroit number three. Number two, Tampa Bay Jameis Winston gonna miss the what? I three, four games. The marketing department doesn't have his name on the billboard. I don't think that's a very good sign. Listen, the kids not mature enough right now. It's called franchise quarterback because it's about the franchise. India really wanna give the keys to Jameis Winston. He's been in trouble in college. Now he's trouble in the NFL just not mature enough for the position. Again, if he was a linebacker, I probably wouldn't care if he was a right guard. I wouldn't care if he was a corner. I wouldn't care if he's a safety. I wouldn't care wide receiver. He's a quarterback grow up and by the way he's easily the fourth best quarterback in that division, and he's not close to breeze, not close to Cam and not close to. Not close to Matt Ryan. The fourth best quarterback in a division usually means you got disarray coming now or very soon number was gotta be the raiders doesn't have to be the raiders. Jon Gruden isn't coats in a decade. If I take two weeks off, I'm rusty who can leave it industry for ten years while he was close to it. Yeah, I can listen to the radio. If I'm gone for ten years, I'm not going to be very good on the radio. I don't know. I just don't see a work. Don't like the defense. They're moving poorest owner, don't trust the ownership stadium issue the group in the GM like each other to see pictures on the internet. They do that doesn't mean anything snapshot doesn't mean anything. What's the working relationship you heard grumbling toward the draft? There is my heard dumpster fire ARCHE. All right. My guy a first thing I got, I gotta ask him about via the coward global satellite Network. My friend, Nick, right? First of all, when you looked at my heard dumpster fire ARCHE, anybody who agree disagree with I vehemently agree with the Oakland Raiders. The only part I disagree with is you setting team with an elite quarterback that could fall off wake me when the raiders getting elite quarterback, like David Carr, Derek Carr? Pardon me? I, that was almost an intentional Freudian slip his career. Are six point five which ranks him one hundred and thirty first in NFL history. You know who's one hundred thirty? Second in NFL history, his brother, David Carr, paulie one better than the brother known as one of the biggest bus ever. He's had great weapons with Cooper and Michael crabtree's had good running games. He has in my opinion, the best offense of line in his entire conference..

"About the matt patricia story of course it was revealed this week the new head coach of the detroit lions was arrested in nineteen ninety six on charge of aggravated assault sexual assault that is in texas his employers did not know about it the charges were dropped it does not on its record and the lions are standing by him and i feel like all of the reaction is missing the one point that matters more than everything else here there's one thing that matters more than everything else here and it's not why didn't they know about it why didn't they find out about it look can you make an argument that they should overhaul their background check system and process and that it's something that should be looked at across the board shore can you argue that when you're hiring a position as important as your head coach you go above and beyond on something like this of course you can argue that but the point is the facts are that they went through the process it's not like the avoided doing background check and it did not come up and this is someone who worked for another organization before he got to the lions and then goes to the lions and they have no reason i would imagine to suspect anything considering he was just employed by the patriots it doesn't come up on the background check and it's found out later and then a lot of reporters are going hey we found this out in just a minute or two well yes because you knew what to look for and they're using nexis lexis nexis essentially a tool for investigating the public record and they know what what keyword search for what to look for now and that's a deeper dive any more specific dive than the initial background check but that's not the important thing the important thing is whether he did it right if matt patricia is guilty of this he should not be employed i don't have a problem with the lion standing by him but they better be right.

"Yeah our legal protections and then will i think this addresses your concern that you've voiced earlier the legal protection the idea of the presumption of innocence we may wonder i think it's fair to kind of connect that idea to the fact that i think there's often publicly of presumption of guilt and we need that legal the legal safeguard for the accused of a presumption of innocence because we understand human nature is to presume guilt on some level if there's a charge there's a sense where there's smoke there's fire matt patricia is claiming there is none it was a false accusation and we simply don't have the facts in the case to argue it one way or another and so i do not think it should affect his employment go ahead molly i was just lastly i was going to say this well when you say like what's the endgame here i think the end games truth for the falsely accused and for the victims which is clearly we know how difficult that that is to agree well i'm totally meant match what will why i wanted to detroit free press for dredging up between two story and the only quainton do i need we don't know the truth one i want to molly yeah yeah of course if you had a question for you when you say truth how do you get to that because the prosecutor has turpentine even if the alleged victim has her interpretation matt patricia is on the record saying he's innocent he is not guilty of this he could not have been more emphatic about his innocence he uttered those words innocent i did not do this so how do we find a true twenty two years later i wish i had the answer to that and unfortunately yes it's a longtime ago three sides to every story the other thing i wanted to add to because when we initially discussed this on the conference call i assumed it was the victim who spoke out on this and it wasn't as you mentioned it was the detroit free press who broke this story.
"matt patricia" Discussed on First Take
"Ding someone's name through the mud in this case matt patricia because the charges were dropped and if they were it was a false accusation that's also completely unacceptable and we need to be careful in our being careful not to victim shame or to blame an accuser we need to be careful also not to just simply accept every accusation and assume well wait a minute there wasn't indictment therefore where there's smoke there's fire no there's a legal process and the charges were dropped against patricia given the time that it took place twenty two years ago given the fact that the charges were dropped in given the fact that we simply don't have the facts in the case we don't have all the information i think it is what's happening to patrician now is unfair and i don't i don't think he should keep his job with the lions and and i don't know what other conclusion one can reach your i will before i jump in on what i think might take from this is i think you know issues like this one and the conversations like we're about to have need to have back and forth so if i may just quickly i'd like to address the things you said molly and if you give me i tried to write a tried to write them down and i think i missed number two but first of all number one number one you said if matt patricia is guilty of sexual assault even going back twenty two years and even when you're twenty one years old he shouldn't hold the job that he has now he shouldn't be leaders of men i agree with you.
