"Running back 341 yards of offense through three games, Another 129 and Thursdays lost to Miami. Undrafted rookie red Birds of Illinois State. He'd been my Jacksonville must have seen something in him when they decided to waive Leonard for net. By the way, Hey and mince you, except for Thursday Thursday got away from him against Miami. They've been very, very competitive Better than I think. Most thought James Robinson's a reason Why so I'm gonna say James Robinson, Undrafted rookie running back out of Illinois State. My third biggest surprise. What? I never sorry. What was that? I never thought myself on the back ever doing Were you on? Were you on it with James? I will say that on ESPN dot com Every Sunday morning I Dain beavers and I go over the most underrated player under A radar player that played really well that Saturday or guy moving up the big board. It's up on ESPN dot com every Tuesday, Right and we had James Robinson highlight last year, one of many under the radar guys end up being drafted or undrafted, are playing in the NFL right now. James Robinson of Illinois State was one of those stories. There's a reason you spend all day Saturday and all night into Sunday, doing this stuff. And sometimes those pay dividends. And James Robinson was really no surprise In the fact the surprise was dark. He wasn't drafted. Yeah, well, well done. Look, you're on it, man. That absolutely well done. Number two Surprise. Assumes you're done patting yourself on the back of time. I'm gonna keep doing it here now. Now, this is this is this is one here that it goes against me. I completely destroyed this prediction. It was the Detroit Lions being a team that I thought to win a division. Beat out Green Bay and win that division in the first game of the Andre Swift, High Draft choice. Early second round pick drops that much Now they would have beaten the Bears felt looked up 14 to 3 against Green Bay last we think a boy, they're gonna have a great game, then get rolled. After that. Now you've gotta play the Cardinals on the road or red hot scene, then New Orleans at Jackson, Atlanta in the I mean, you're looking at a rough start for the Detroit Lions. They get Kenny Golladay back. They haven't him in a great wide receiver. You can't stop the run. You can't stop the passage that two sacks. No interceptions have gotten nothing out of the fourth round their third round pick Julian Okwara from Notre Dame past. Russia supposedly hasn't given any of that yet. So you can't rush the passer. You can't cover your two leading tacklers or your safety story. You're in trouble. They need Golladay back. They did this defense to improve her. Matt Patricia head coach and Bob Quinn GM, obviously on the hot seat for a reason. Lions your second biggest surprise and understandable My number two surprise. I shouldn't be surprised You can pat yourself on the back some more on this. Um, but if the improvement shown Bye, Josh Allen through two games. Your Buffalo Bill's about saying something good about you. I don't want to get too excited spied on anyone, but he's been clean with the football 70% completion percentage. This is a guy that's about a 58% passer last year, six touchdowns no picks on not just Accurate but accurate with the deep ball. He's got this team looking like the best team in the A F. C East of this point about this first player in NFL history, Mel with 700 pass yards and 75 Rush yards in a team's first two games of a season. Josh Allen, I don't I do think he's a good quarterback right now. He looks like a great quarterback. My number to surprise On the hot list is not a bust, like everybody said he was going tonight. We already won that battle. He's not a disaster, like everybody predicted about all those other guys predicted. So yeah, he's he's better than much Most. That's a 95% of everybody out there thought he would be Yes. More padding. Keep packing. Thank.

"Look Man I. Succeed I, don't I don't like what you're doing as a quarterback and I might even I hope I'd be able to say like, Hey, I do the silly thing where when you have a bad game I, call you Mitch when you have a good game I, call you Mitchell that'd be able to say that to his face but. You know it's kind of funny too. I tried like this whole thing I was like, well, I'm GONNA, call him the rest of the segment ended up calling him Mitchell like most of the time. Anyway. So kind of botched idea anyway and Yeah Ed if it sounds like I'm being mean spirited I'll probably step away from it s not my intent there. And I never I know that. I just I don't know I I. I'm not that attached to it that I need to keep it going. So maybe I'll retire that idea after just one segment because it just didn't work that well and wasn't that interesting or that exciting. Also isn't that clever either Kick Carl writes in. He says, how long would you keep Patricia if you don't Know Matt Patricia is. Head coach their into. they had a ugly loss week one at the end of the game to Chicago, where they kind of blew giant lead and they got blown out by the packers in week two. They play the cardinals this week that should be ugly game as well. They'll probably start your own three. So there are three coaches right now that I estimate are on the hot seat. You have Dan Quinn. In Atlanta. He's probably we'll see how the year goals Dan Quayle is not a four sir fired, but he's on the hot seat. Dan What am I saying Matt Patricia might be fired in Detroit. and. Then Adam gays should be fired immediately out of gas. I would fire as soon as possible rescue Sam Darnold from Adam gays. the enemy. If you are the New York go get Sam darnold good offensive minded coach Eric be enemy from Kansas City. That's a dude. He should have been a head coach a couple years ago talking Brad Coleman about it. It's pretty obvious to me. I I have less urgency to fire Matt. Patricia. I don't see any reason why you don't let them finish the year. however, I mean first of all, it'd be fair to see. Matt Patricia may be. Makes Progress. It's the jury style. We've seen two games. I don't want to judge it too quickly. but I will say that his job is in jeopardy and if the year keeps going the way it is you probably will fire him at the end of the year. Now, the reason if you find a reason to fire Matt Patricia early. It would be because you want to get him out of the job. So you can make a plant the coach really want if the lions really want Eric the enemy. That's a competitive guy that's gonna be hard to get. So you might have to fire Patricia earlier in the year to make a play Eric, the enemy, the Kansas City chiefs offense coordinator as early as possible. So that is why if the if the Lions Fire Patricia early? It would be so they can make a plant, the guy they really want and try to secure exactly the head coach that they want. But also on the lions have a lot of questions moving forward. ARE THEY GONNA, Keep Matthew Stafford their quarterback are they going to keep their general manager? They Clean House entirely I don't know If by were running the lions, I would probably get rid of GM coach and quarterback I love Matthew Stafford. It's not working there..

"Offers the first two weeks Matt Patricia is in some trouble we thought he should have given tigers manager, Ron Gardenhire call after last week and just tired at something Patricia Might WanNa think about pretty soon here thirty to twenty Arizona over the troubled clients. and. Briefly, what about the seahawks at home against the cowboys? Be a shootout there and Dallas, forced into win that game last week I. Know It was a great comeback big numbers for deck but the defense a lot to be desired I don't know if they can go to Seattle and win the seahawks though usually cut close at home there should be a pretty entertaining game I. Think Game Was Thirty Eight, thirty, one seahawks in this one. and. Let's take a look at the Sunday night game because this is a pretty good one you'll the saints will be looking to get back into the win column and they'll go up against the packers who have looked red hot but I see the packers or slide underdogs. Yeah. The game is in New Orleans here we saw at the saints did a couple of weeks ago the box now I know they didn't look good on Monday night but giving the saints a little bit of the benefit of the doubt here. Green Bay yes. Has looked pretty good the first two weeks but against some flawed especially, if you can't flawed opponents is going to be much tougher on. Sunday night. Down in New Orleans we saw what happened in the packers last year and they had to step it up against the forty. Niners did not go to well on the road for them. Something somewhere might happen here Sunday night I would expect the saints to Bounce back though the packers have a good like you said, but we're going with New Orleans here thirty, four, twenty, three saints drew brees bouncing back. Sunday night. And you couldn't ask for a better match up of young outstanding quarterbacks in the National Football League you've got Jackson for the Baltimore Ravens and of course, you've got the young guy at Kansas. City, of course, and that'll be the Monday night game. So how do you see shaken out? Yeah boy you better teams in this run right now, and Baltimore is really the buzz team going into the playoffs last even above Kansas City, they were the number one seed in the AFC got knocked off by the titans and I first round there. So this is really a big and they also lost an early season game at Kansas City last year. Now, they get them at home not many fans if any fans are going to be them and she bank stadium, but they look like they are in full flight right now the Ravens and I'm. Not sure about the chiefs they were very fortunate against against the chargers last week I. Do know Patrick Mahomes. He has lost a game. He has started by more than seven point and he since he was at Texas Tech and college but the Ravens I think are just loaded for bear here and they're getting contributions from different guys. It was a defensive running game last week the all the way from Houston. They didn't need it monster game from Lamar. Jackson but we know he is eminently capable thirty, six, twenty, seven..

"He'll. Be. Gone. Love Matt Patricia I love. But I've seen tweets from Detroit people they are not happy. Alright and the packers are traveling down to an empty superdome, which is a little bit different as new. Orleans home field advantage is a big big deal. What's up there? Seven hundred, twenty, five people they're gonNA, try to get in there and They will be loud because seven hundred and twenty-five Cajun's diner by you. If they got that whistler, it could be a real problem that is allowed Haas a seven hundred, twenty five people might sound like just spattering of doctors on the sideline the Green Bay packers plus three going down to New Orleans minus three after a week of everybody wondering if drew brees was dead or not this drew brees still be able to throw the football how They respond. Michael. Thomas. Still Out I do believe I don't know if there's been an official ruling but Ian rapoport hard told us that he thinks he'll be out for another couple of weeks at least two to four. This'll be the two of the two to four for him Green Bay packers plus three plane better football than ever played I. Think you take Green Bay packers plus three in money line here down in New Orleans and I think you. Feel very, very good about it. Now, the only issue is, is the green. Bay. Packers defense going to be able to stop drew brees and Alvin Kamara and that offense because packers have not been defenses not been. Let's say tiptop. If we're just judging from the last three games that they've played and championship first week second week, they have not been like, Hey, we're going to stop everything from happening but Aaron Rodgers and offense been able to make up. Forever. And they've been able to stop enough to get a win i. just feel like the packers get this win. This is upset of the week for me plus one thirty, eight Green Bay packers get the money line victory. Yes. It's not like in both those. But like you said, I, am worried that everyone's been shitting on brees all week and saying that he socks and he's done. So you know like the classic game or he would respond but. Daria. Smith did circle the Saints Week Three. So I think he is licking his chops to be able to take breezes head off really looking forward to that. I mean their offense has been great. It'll be interesting because floor did say today that Davante Adams probably isn't gonNA play so we'll see what happens there but I mean. Know, he's a great head space is on fire Raji. He's playing great football. I mean I love all the tabloids took his quotes out of context and automatically assume well, what are you gonNA. Do I mean that's what they do but that's Aaron Rodgers entire career is what happened everything? Gets taken however, they want it and they just run with it instead of saying maybe Aaron Rodgers decided to worry about Aaron Rodgers the first time and kind of take care of everything in the packers hired a psychologist come onto the team maybe maybe just having greenspace all the tabloids with idea though that's on it. What he just said it's like I thanks for the Bush. You know thanks for it. We appreciate the. According to show and everything like that. But can we maybe just ask the guy what do you met instead of just automatically assume The Rogers fact, and that's why I for one appreciate you have in mind and people seeing the real side because I mean it's just like the breeze thing you know if if the packers start one in one in one or two and Rogers looked like breezed it and everyone would of ripped him apart because it's breeze it's let's give drew break. You know he's okay. Is the best ever at Shay would never happen to Roger So I appreciate you having him on and letting people see like Oh this guy isn't just a huge asshole like everyone thinks Jesus how three? Israel, no one's talking about give drew break. You know drew's okay. It's still best ever factor. My God what is that in your heart on this Good Friday as we wrap up our three holding that in all I've wanted to ask Rogers that because it is true if the packers started out like the saints would then people would be reacting much differently towards rogers than they have been towards because he elbowed you. Well Yeah. That's a huge part of it. For those that don't know last super bowl drew brees joined. US was very nice. He brought a smooth me smoothie. Bring everybody else. Body now and? Everyone pizzas on his on his way to say hello to Cubans Zeke Cubans was he crowd-pleaser down there and he was on a different stages us he did take his elbow and he put it in the back of ties head to balance himself to shake his. Hand and then never said a Lotta time just one. No. Yeah. GimMe a Charley Horse in between my shoulder blades. After I was laughing at all his canned jokes. Oh I don't think. That happened in drew came on the show so I like drew. Did have a run. Became feel that army more. Can't thank you enough. For choosing listen to the show, you like the show. Please tell the friend if you did not like the show Zach like this whole week never even happened just. Tuck. It charges to the game and keep it moving from all of us. To all of you to all of our guests to everybody we can't thank you enough have the best. We can view entire life. This feel Good Friday is complete but I think you're gonNA take the and run with it for the rest of the day. I, think you argue potentially make this Friday and the history of Friday's, and there's been a lot of Friday's and I know that's sweet. Smell of freedom is just on. The other side of this thing I know that there's two days of both college football and NFL football on the horizon. But I, think you are going to make the most of today and that's what it's all about. Thank you so much for listening tie Schmidt please play some independent music. We will see you on Monday afternoon with overreaction Monday and a preview for chiefs Ravens I can't wait for it I'll see you then..

"Then we got Leonard for net going. We Got Roja. Go Mike Evans and Tom Brady are. Starting to buy together I think that team is starting to come together. I. Think the Broncos are starting to go the opposite direction due to injuries, which is a shame. Jeff looked a lot better than I thought he was going to look whenever he got in the game I like Tampa Bay minus five and a half year in Denver but Tom Brady has had mixed reviews in Denver right I mean there's there's big wins there's some losses. Out there will the food chain of TB twelve treatment that is something maybe we have to account for like Tampa Bay monitored five and a half even though I love the Broncos Organization, I like their fans I just don't know I, think this is two teams on two different directions right now in this game, the twenty percent of the bets are on the Broncos but ninety seven percent of the money's on the broncos. So there's something potentially going. On now is broke the Rut. For feeling better. No daughter-in-law twenty nine, seven me on the big money people they're trying trying to move line they might pair trying to. They're probably trying to get it to four three and a half. Martin. Something like that. Okay. Middle if you help me with that, maybe we laid off until Sunday to see what the Tampa Bay line is. But I liked Tampa going over to Denver cowboy cowboys ride over to Seattle. So zero sidebar I like Seattle minus five year I'm not hammering it but I like it. The Dallas cowboys could have you know whenever you're shooting and you. Kinda. Cold. And somebody makes it kind of takes the top off Toledo? Yeah. He kind of takes the top off the bucket. Did that happen at the end of the game last week whenever they kicked an onside kick and won a game they weren't supposed to win Mike McCarthy era they win a game that you're not supposed to win is that going to be the difference between this era in the last of cowboys winning games you're supposed to win or not supposed to win as opposed to lose games you're supposed to win. That'll be very, very interesting to me Seattle seahawks are just so fucking good at football and Russell. Wilson's unbelievable in cowboys are injured I think he'd go back with. Russell Wilson Dominates, that I'm surprised it's minus five I don't know what it will move to. I like to see hawks minus by as Foxy wasn't played free safety form I mean it might be a good thing. Now and speaking of Foxy, the lions travel to the desert with the team with no wins and they are taking on the Arizona cardinals who are one of the hottest teams in football. Right now Kinda Murray is one of the most comfortable quarterbacks his position right now not stressing sweating anything making people look silly allow what Lamar Jackson was doing all last year and is continuing to do this. Season we'll talk about chief Ravens on Monday on the other side can't wait for that match up I. Think everybody in their mom here likes the Arizona cardinals five and a half I would assume the money as leaning that way that's leaning on. Albums eighty percent of the vet's ninety percent of the money. So that is just an entire sweep of the smart people and the dump gamble saying this one is pretty obvious. Last year, these two teams tied these two teams have gone very different directions then yeah. We're not surprised to hear guys lines at the Lines Assyria Matt Patricia doesn't win this game it doesn't beat the saints the week after. Week.

"It was the same in the spring. You know when we got into the zoom, everybody was concerned how that was going to work from virtual offseason and it was the same exact thing for training camp house training camp going to work, and once you get into it kind of settle in and you get into that rhythm in that normality Then everyone feels comfortable. I think it's going to be the same way to start the season I think. Everyone's going to have a little bit of uneasiness about them, and then we'll figure out how to be as normal as possible in a normal situation than normal season, and then we'll go from there but concert reminder to the guys just to be safe. And how critically important it is to not only. Yourself but your teammates, really your teammates families you know that affects everybody no doubt. I mean, no doubt I mean the number of vectors. So many people are focused on. Well, young players might do something silly by going out and socializing. It's difficult to not be young in the NFL and try and live the trap trimmings of a lifelike that for the lack of a better phrase. But what about the veterans you've got kids who might be going to school right or who want to go out and have a play date or something like that, and you gotta be careful there because you know obviously the testing is set up to make sure it doesn't come into the building, but you just don't know in this day and age you know.

Pleased to have here on this program one week from the NFL season beginning on Thursday night football. This Sunday will be one week removed from the Detroit. Lions starting against the Chicago bears and back here on the show is the head coach of the Detroit Lions Matt Patricia, How are you coach? Doing Great. Are you doing I'm doing very well, you're on Tom Coughlin time. Today I thought you're calling in right now but you called in five minutes early is that was I? Was Unaware. that. You're five minutes before. Yeah. No. I we'd totally three per loop there. That's not on my end. I was just so you know what? I mean. I hear you I hear you I. Can I can I can audible at the line I did I did the math wrong in the whole west coast thing so apparently there's a five in there that I miss no problem. It's okay like I said I can handle it comes at me I'll just got I have no time management problems here at all I can handle whatever I can handle. It's all good I. Appreciate you calling in let's let's start with last week but just jump right into the the the world that we live in coach. It was a week ago this past Tuesday, we all know what the NBA decided to do and stop playing games because of the shooting in Kenosha Wisconsin of Jacob Blake but the lines the day before the the NBA decided to stop playing your team did not practice and then stood outside the facility with a sign that said, we won't be silent. Walk me through how the cancelling of practice developed a couple of days ago if you don't mind. Really I think with with our team that we have right now we've had. Some great conversations going back to the spring I think when guys really opened up and really shared and everyone I would say even though we're virtual in zoom world really just listened you know and they just paid attention to guys that were telling stories and life experiences and You know describing what it's like for everyone from different backgrounds and and I think. It was a really It was a big moment for us in the spring to really grow as a team. You know we just spent hours listening to each other and I thought that was important and We finally got together for training camp You could feel that bond you could feel the you know the camaraderie between the is and how much they cared for each other. And really you know that Tuesday. When I got into work you know, I'm usually a little bit last to no one on things that are going on outside of my little bubble. But you know I had heard about everything that was going on Wisconsin was trying to get caught up on it and It was just a situation where you know walked into team meeting that morning and and just. Just want to make sure the players were okay. Just wanted to check in just wanted to See our what he was doing. You know I didn't really feel like talking about football and we just You know we spend the next two hours two and a half hours having conversation and I think one of the things that you know we talked about was just guys saw it and Kinda. Just moved on and how you know really that we didn't think that was right. You know we thought it was more important to make sure that we continue the conversation in guys really shared a lot. So it was really very impactful morning. In obviously the first time that we had an opportunity to do that. As a group in person in really when you when you are a team and you have you know brotherhood and and guys that you care about you see and feel all the different emotions that they feel and and you know from ranging from pain to fear to you know anger sadness you know it affects you and affects everybody so. Kind of came to a head. The players had some great conversations after we got done at the team and you know I talked to everybody and just new going to be one of those days where didn't really feel going practices that the world life and everything else that was going on was more important and I'm. Really, proud of our guys for having. You know the comfort to have that space to talk to each other and to listen and to grow and You know that was just really important for us I. Know I'm just looking at the the that we just put on the screen of the greaseboard saying the world can't go on, which is a phrase. You used a just a couple of seconds ago and I'm just thinking on it and you see you know the masks that everyone's wearing and you know. There's no preseason games and we're wearing masks from the middle of a pandemic and and you read the room and said, you know what we're. We don't WanNa talk football today, and we're going to go out and we're GonNa talk about social justice issues within the team and we're GONNA make it known everybody. I how does it coach prepare for something like this world to read a room like that, and then also understand that there's football to be played in just a couple of weeks and what are you drawing upon right now? Matt Patricia. I appreciate that question you know obviously there's no, there's no playbook for this anything that we're going through right now. So I look through the leadership of the team I really do I got a great group of guys leadership and the team is outstanding These these guys are are just they're amazing. You know and they're super smart. They've got great things to say and I learned so much from them every day that you know I really just try to lean on them to lead where we're GONNA go I'd say the other point for me really probably a good Probably a good check for me to as a coach you know I think that when I got into coaching One of things that I said, a reason to kind of leave engineering and get into coaching. Was You know WanNa make a difference in in young men's lives and and be there as a mentor and a teacher and? Obviously help in the game that I love I love football and passionate about it's what I you know what I do but You know when you get to the highest level in the competitiveness and everybody wants to be there at the end. That is certainly the focus but. Underlying all of that is is trying to make a difference in people's lives and. There's probably a good check for me to just to make sure that I'm doing my job as a coach is far as that's concerned and being there to listen and to help into guide in whatever way I can Matt Patricia Detroit Lions. Head. Coach, here on the rich Eisen show. Let's Let's start talking about week one..
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
"matt patricia" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"It's set up between Thursday night and Friday night and really Friday into Saturday. It's very interesting. There's a lot of strategy a lot of You know analysis tickles involved with okay. What are we going to happen here? you know at the top of the round and who's going to be locked as we go through into the third round and I think for us With him still being on the board and Swift Vailable It was really kind of a situation. Like hey you know can't still there And if he's still there we're gonNA take them and die. It's going to be a really good day so from that aspect of it It was great for us You know I know. A quarterback was happy to get another Bulldog in the building. I'm sure you know from from that standpoint You know curves equate coach and I know him really well down there And just you know. Couldn't speak the world enough announced him so Everything check the boxes for us. The guy that we think was dynamic enough in the run game explosives big play maker but also can catch the ball get out of the backfield opened up the formation and just put a lot of pressure You know on a defense as possible and just make those plays that we need to be made. Should we be so fortunate to get a training camp coach? Will there be a competition at that spot for the starter at running back you know. I think there's competition that every spot. That's kind of odd like the term when we get the training camp You know probably pretty sure. I'm good with the quarterback spot but beyond that You know we're GONNA go out and we're going to compete but I think in the running backs in general You know I've talked about this all the time Neil for me WE'RE GONNA try to play whoever's going to help us In that particular play that particular game whatever it might be and you know if you're out there for the very first play You know or you get out there on the second play I don't really understand what the differences between the starter in that case. You know we got. We got kerryon Johnson Johnson. We picked up those scoreboard who helped us last year hills we added last year. Huntly I mean you know. We'll get those guys out there and we'll see what happens but certainly we're excited about You know being able to acquire swift and get him on our team and and seeing what he can. Do you know. Sometimes you put your three running backs out there. Let's see what happens. We've got the of the Detroit. Lions Matt Patricia. For a few more minutes here on the rich. Eisen show. You've made reference to your quarterback Matthew Stafford or a couple of times in the interview so far The real estate market is Is in the news In the State of Michigan Because of the sale of Of the Stafford Manse And people are reading into all that. What's is there? Do you read into the Real Estate. Market coach definitely do not read into the real estate market and message My house okay. Other than that I'm good I know there's a lot of things that were out there in. You know quite frankly They were I think the word I used was laughable that everybody was asking me about but you know from my standpoint Matthew Stafford and I You know I just couldn't be more happy more blessed situation where he's a quarterback since they wanna walk in the building just so impressed with him You know as a player as a person His intelligence of the game the way he studies And just you know his knowledge overall. I just enjoy those conversations so much so You know all of that is really great and You know he are just like you said hoping that football going here sooner than later and we can all just get out on the field and be normal and Do what we do but until the end were were just trying to make the best of I know. It's it's It's a dangerous isn't the word but I guess dicey for to ask a coach in the NFL question about the media. But why do you think this is constantly a conversation about Stafford and the Lions? And maybe he's been offered or people are knocking on your door for him. Why do you think that's a constant drumbeat last couple of years? That's a really good question now would say I have no idea I mean honestly it's A lot of times I think people just try to speculate or they you know throw darts at the board. See what sticks and then people run with it so That's why from from that standpoint for us You know we just Kinda pay. No I don't WANNA say pay no mind but you just don't really think that's but you know it's just all about doing what we do and staying focused moving forward so Turning from that avenue. I'm not I really don't know I mean you could. You could have given me an honest. Cincinnati answer and I appreciate you. Didn't I appreciate that? You actually expounded on that. I really appreciate that you know speaking of that. Were you surprised at Brady left? The year old spot re surprised that he's going to be wearing Tampa Bay pewter a great question you haven't been there in a couple of years so I don't know if I can really speak on any of that other than the fact that You know I know. Tom Is super competitive. And he's a great person he's a great guy and I know Tampa Bay is GONNA be real excited to have him and he's gotTa go down there and do everything you can to to try to win Certainly spent a lot of a lot of great years with Tom. Brady and someone that I just You know I love so much and consider a really close friend and and just know that you know he's GonNa Compete and he loves to play this game and you know wish them. All the best You know except when we play Mommy. Obviously do you plan this year? I'm trying to say I don't think you do though. Do you reschedule we? We've got a notice. There's a Michigan Guy. You know what I'm kind of embarrassed I'm looking right now. You do play him did are you are you. Are you aware that when you do see him on week? Sixteen it. It was in your house that Tom got his first ever Rep. Is a professional quarterback on Thanksgiving. Are you aware of that fact? What I'm I'M NOT GONNA lie to you. I was not aware go at all. So that's my history lesson for the day of Education for me it's only fitting revered up the road from you as you know revered up the road have. I have only gone to that stadium with my kids taking some pictures and maybe sent them to different when I went in the locker room because Jim harbaugh reached out to me to be an honorary captain one day and I crushed at you know I mean although I I forgot what he instructed me and the players to call You know to to ask for should we? Michigan is just we for the day win. The toss forgot what we were supposed to do if we lost the toss and the players at the time that were out there jake but was On the team that time they looked at me. And I'm like I'm honorary like I don't remember this thing and I remember playing this game. No so this is funny. This is funny. So we go back to the sideline and Harbaugh's already got his hands on his knees. He's focused right balls about to be kicked off and this is after I got introduced and fans cheered and doffed my cap like I was Lou. Gehrig you know like I didn't know what the hell do so I go back? Go back he stares at me and I think to myself did I screw up the toss and he looks at me and he just suddenly breaks into smile goes hey nice. Ovation am I think I got it right but the reason why I tell that story is. I go in the locker room that day. There's one picture of bow on the wall and two of Tom Brady. So that's all you need to know the. Yeah I could see that You know I think we gotta get you out here. You Know Okay. We can get that right. Maybe you've been out to lions game and You know look at. It is one of the most stressful things. The head coach. You're trying to explain to the players and you're just like okay my screwing this up. Are you going to screw? Herbage is a little bit messed up here. I do a lot of hand signals and make sure we point right trying to be clear. You Glenn Marks in the stadium so You know there's nothing worse especially you know. What's so funny? Is that indoor? Obviously it's completely different than when you're playing outdoor stadiums especially late the year. And you know I mean does it really matter one way or another. I don't know you can have like a parcells knowledge of your of Your Stadium. No that if a garage doors open. There's a draft something like that. You know you may. There's been a few fans that happened to come on once in a while. I'm not saying that doesn't happen every now. And then if you got you gotTa Southside Stadium where you can open up a door and create a little bit of a win. There's there's that sometimes those buttons get pushed interesting. I'll just just make a note of make a mental note that hey before I let you go We we mentioned here on our show yesterday. that For some reason don't worry about how they came up but it I've never seen the movie roadhouse from beginning to end in so many of the movie point break at all my colleagues here very upset with me for that. Is there a film that you've never seen that you'd be embarrassed? Admit that you've never seen. I know you're football coach. And you're in the tank. Many Times watching Game Film Not Actually Cinema but zero movie. You've never seen that would be somewhat embarrassing for you Matt Patricia. To admit that you've never seen the ending question to Sir I'll say this I have purposely not Caught up yet on the star wars movies because I just know that I watch him. I cannot be interrupted. Just sit down and I want to grind through all of them. I have as a huge star wars fan as a kid growing up That is embarrassing to me that I have yet to see those but Got The new one. I haven't done it yet but the old Mark Hamill Harrison Ford you are. You're locked in on that but the new ones have been sentenced sitting in the cinema furrow giant screen like eating popcorn. Gobbly too much. Yeah that was may whole okay. All Right Matt thanks for the call brother great chatting with you as always really appreciate the time always always always great to talk to you everything that you do all the time and you hope everyone just stay safe and stay healthy and I always appreciate your support of my run for Saint Jude. You do every year. You're a generous man coach. Appreciate that thank you so much. Thank back at you. That's Detroit. Lions head coach. Matt Patricia..

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. I'd love to see Jerry Jones higher black head coach and I think I probably won't live long enough or Jerry will live long enough to know.

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.
Washington Nationals reintroduce Stephen Strasburg after signing him to 7-year/$245M contract
"Year for the lines but Matt Patricia and Bob Quinn will be around for another with ownership announcing the two will be back in twenty twenty Detroit is lost seven in a row and ten of eleven quarterback Matthew Stafford season is over due to a broken bone in his back one reason for their large
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

The lions in the raiders are two of the five teams that the NFL can force to do the show the others in case, you're curious the San Francisco forty Niners, the Washington Redskins and the New York Giants would you want the lines to be featured? No, I think that's too big a distraction fourteen like the lions, I think feature Oakland if the raiders don't wanna do it. Maybe feature the New York Giants.

Matthew Stafford endures 10 sacks, 17 hits; Lions' OL 'embarrassed'
"The lions boy, it was an historic day. Really? You could call that Chris Villar in regards to what happened to Matthew Stafford by the Vikings. If that's what you want to call it. That's fine. With me. Ten sacks isn't going to lead to any nice things being said about them. They also only ended up with three field goals against the Vikings defense at a twenty four to nine loss. The dagger coming in the fourth quarter when Matthew Stafford made an ill advised lateral during a run to the right side that resulted in a defensive touchdown for the Vikings. He was asked what happened there? Yeah. Just trying to do too much. 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.

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 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.

"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 Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM
"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.
"matt patricia" Discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin
"Yeah let's let's bring jerry bill into this of course he covers the nfl for usa today jared thanks for coming on what's up fellas how're thing are good testing do you think this is over the map patricia the lions have said that they support him they say that he's their coach is this going to go away this is he going to go into camp here in a bit and become the head coach of this team or is this have legs i don't think it has that many legs if the lions are saying that they support him in terms of you know making any kind of move or reexamining what what they did and decided to hire him but it it is it does raise some interesting points one being what's the statute of limitations nowadays in the nfl and you've met them vance joseph and how that came up as part of the conversation when he was hired which was interesting at the time too because he had been in colorado and allegations stem when he was in on the college level in colorado and whatnot so it it gives you pause but i think matt patricia was trying to defend himself and say hey these allegations were not true in just trying to i can say trying to defend himself on that but the fact that there were no charges and obviously no conviction or anything i don't know if it's enough enough right now to say okay take his job away but if there are some other details that emerged more information comes out that we don't know about then i guess that's fair game but it happened so long ago that you would have thought that if it was something that was more serious that that was really serious and i'm not not even to the minutes what i don't know about it but you would have thought that something would have surfaced in the years where he had a pretty high profile position with the patriots.

"matt patricia" Discussed on First Take
"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.

"Nfl once again forced to navigate some dangerous waters will tell you about it next on spain and fitz on espn radio and the espn app spain and fitz nicole briscoe in for sarah chased him fits it's time for straight talk brought to you by straight talk wireless best phones best networks no contracts and the straight talk year is that yet again the nfl is wishing there were games to distract us from what's happening off the field and i said this loudly in the past especially during these iki elliott stuff that the with the nfl really needed were games take everybody mind everybody's minds off the things and then we got games going and not only that but once you added protests on top of it there was never relief right the nfl needs relief at some point they need to to find a way to get the news positive and to get us everybody just enjoying football again that becomes very difficult when things happen like has happened today as you may have heard in the news the new lion's head coach matt patricia a report has come out to in detroit that he was accused of aggravated sexual assaults in texas twenty two earner looks like nineteen ninetysix so back in nineteen ninety six he was accused of sexual assault it went through injury they did not end up going to trial so the charges eventually were dropped they did not they did not press charges so i is some point in this process it never came up in the hiring it's not something the lines were aware about when they hired him but it is now come to come to the front of everybody's attention and it forces a reaction from everybody and i it's it's important to know and we'll get to some some what to coach patricia had to say about it and some of our thoughts it's important to know that this happened in one thousand nine hundred six again it's important to know that as of this point he has not been convicted of anything but he is definitely he was definitely used a grand jury definitely decided there was enough there to move forward and then they weren't able to prosecute so nicole when you see this what your initial reaction i mean i'm stunned.
