"That's what i'm going to open it. Because i don't wanna four with it because we do everything eleven ten and i'm gonna keep my eyes on this one but starts dropping. I definitely will drop it. But in a matter of fact even while i'm thinking about i'm gonna open at seven. What the hell is what i love. You make decisions right here. You gotta make them. Sometimes daria decided right now. But i think seven really is a better number. And that's what i'm open but of all the trends. Keep that one of my. You go from a home dog to road favorite. It's usually an over inflated price. If tyrod taylor stays in that game which rod taylor One of the has this amazing record of not coughing up the football by fumble or interception for guy who has talking about minimum number of snaps. He's right up there in the top. The history of the li. If he stays in that game yesterday they might just upset. The cleveland browns. They're right in. Yeah right in it i like. I said i'm watching this kid. And he gets zero credit. Probably a lot of guys rate them the thirty to the thirty second starting quarterback. He's better than that. He not bad for sure and even going into the season he was better than that. Like people have strange things with certain guys like ryan fitzpatrick listed. Snickers really really. He's like one of your worst quarterbacks. So funny how people sort of pigeonhole guys all right. So seven is that i'm going to open seven vine seven and a half pretty much everywhere in the world but we're gonna open seven and take a back. You think. sean can actually show for this. I don't think so. I think david i can't answer that. I don't know david kelly. What are you doing analytics analytics. What's the next one jeff sunday morning. I one cardinals. Jaguars cardinals jaguars okay. Arizona's one of the two knows as they survive. Greg joseph missed thirty seven yard field a win but they do not cover against minnesota. Yesterday they went at thirty four thirty three to cover. The four point spread their jacksonville arizona. Kyla murray twenty nine to thirty six for four hundred yards three touchdowns picks was that three to five carries for thirty one yards and a touchdown. He's just sensational to watch. He's just so awesome even though even the fact that he made some mistakes though. But rondell more seven catches for one hundred fourteen yards and a touchdown including one great eighteen yard pickup off a pass yesterday towards the end of the first half which allowed matt prater to get in sixty two yard field goal range which he drilled and that ends up being the difference of a win loss in this game. Four hundred seventy five total yards for arizona. They were minus two in turnovers in that game and still managed to jacksonville lawrence trevor lawrence. He may not be it man. Fourteen of thirty three for one hundred eighteen yards one touchdown to pick sacked one hundred eighteen yards jacksonville. Only had one hundred eighty nine total yards. They were minus two turnovers and their loss to denver in which they were out time of possession. If you will thirty eight fifty two to twenty one wait. I said arizona minus ten and a half on the road by high. Your high. i'm going to say. I like your number better but i might do for you. Yeah it's it's pretty much a blanket seven. I see seven half with big juice on the dogs. Evan my power ratings come to nine and a half now urban meyer. There's already rumors about him leaving. I hear a lot of the scuttlebutt but sounds like a lotta guys on..

Yeah she does a great job acting like a real scientists here too. And i think this is a good scene to kind of pace that they indeed picked one of the best actresses for the job. Do they just say actor. Now for females they don't say actresses anymore. I don't honestly. I just hate saying the word actress. It's like you're an actor.

"Five for one thing. I don't think you should probably know fence like. I'm sure you're a smart guy very. Yeah but still that your age all you can fuck and have a heart attack like doing that. Shed like jumping through fucking like wormholes and shit. But but i do. I like his point of view. I may not agree with it. But i think it's interesting where he's like. We need to stop wasting money on high in the sky abstractions and start spending on practical measurable ways to improve the lives of the people who are after all footing the bill as and that's an interesting way of like should should everything be profitable. Should everything be practical. You know but you always pure research you know there. There's something interesting where he is going to the left and jodie foster's kind of going to the right where it's pure research versus practical. It's this interesting kind of like dance. They do the whole movie. And it kind of feels like mcconaghy's in the middle of that skill as well as well as i get. We need technology. We need signs but at the same time we can kind of you know to spend our lives looking looking at screen to looking for lot. You know it might seem like a waste. You know But i love. Tom scares point of view. In this movie. Though it's really good. Yes especially his his dialogue. It's killer man. Yeah it's very realistic. Actually i think how he's how he's like a you know all about like the business and like looking at it from that point of view what one thing i do really like speaking from like a cinematography. Point of view is house. Did the shot from her running up the stairs when her dad collapses to get the medication. And it's sort of one shot into flo flows into the mirror that may not be like super like these days but like back in the day. I i thought that was really cool our mojo dude. Yeah it's impossible. You know like. I actually watched. There's like a forty second video on youtube of somebody. I don't know who it is explaining it. I think if somebody yup. I don't know if it's a cinematographer or rappers meccas but he's like yeah so basically what we did was. We had a camera man like we had to paint his arm out of the frame and she's not reaching for like anything that there's really nothing there he's like we. We blue screen her in the foreground and as like oh shit so everything behind her is fake and i was like that is fucking cool man as i get set to that seen as such a mind. Fuck when you see a white. What i remember watching that go on the whole ho-ho-hold on it definitely took me a second to like. What the fuck I'm sorry go ahead know. Go for i was gonna say like i think one thing that made this movie so grand for me and like why love it so much is because it was directed by robbers. Meccas it so it just has that feel mean you know back to the future like all my gosh like you know that movie is just like one of the just. It feels so good to watch that at such a good movie. And i think you know you watch a castaway and just the work that he put in with. Tom hanks about that movie. So it's america's has really a devoted to making he has that hollywood timeless feel In my opinion..

"It's what you don't see that really sells it So it may be that in a sense of being timeless making this. Move your story last longer. The fact that The vega nhs kinda see her and the human race maybe not being quite ready To have interaction with A higher being or will high a higher intelligence. Thanks so you know. They're just making it easier on us. We're here you know i. I think there's a statement made you know how we get through this loneliness feeling this empty space through knowing that we're all here together right and one. We're ready the words when the human species is ready. You know we'll take the next step. So i guess it works in that sense but it is it is a lot of it is disappointing and i think a lot of people were kind of disappointed with that ending. 'cause you know everything is set up you know and it just what we're like on a beach and like now like no one believes her and it's kinda it falls to the whole like faith counter. You have to have faith in what she's saying Sort of like. Yeah it kind of goes back to the religious argument there You know that's it. So i don't know i think it could have been done a little better. I'm not sure what. I would suggest doing With the ending. But i i do like how they khanna kept it. A little vague. 'cause you know with like for example back to a rival you know you see the tentacles. It's a little weird like yeah it's it's a little it's a little jarring you know. But when they're in the smoke and shit and you can't quite make out of like fucking. I like that but yeah i just i. I love this movie so much. That i can't even really like. It's hard for me to nitpick it. There's just really kind of goofy stuff. you know. The scientists these goal real quirky. You know we're hawaiian shirts. And you know. Just kinda goofy nineties tropes and stuff like that. But i think that for the most part i can look pass at because the movie as a as a whole is a lot more interesting than that I it's just it's it's hard for me. It's almost perfect to me..

He's got the distance. It is gone. It is good baby that greater center through 59 yards out on the line and celebrating a big field. It was just a few seconds After that, Miller turned alot ms and said, Put your headset back on. We're not done here. Did you spike your headset? Oh, my gosh. I mean, God. Look, I don't know how the act in the booth these days. I mean, you go. You go from emotional highs, too emotional lows and back to emotional highs. So yeah, that was one of my emotional highs. And my hair falls just came off at that time, man. I was I almost drove off the road, man. I was coming down. I 96 from visiting my folks. And I just that there was it was a great moment. You know, we need to point out there that serious of plays over that 16 2nd period after Matt in the offense got the ball went by so quickly. You kind of lost the sensation that They did everything they had to do in a very short span of time against the number one pass defense in the NFL. It was unbelievable. It really was. I mean, it didn't seem possible at that time with 16 seconds that they would be able to drive that far downfield and put Matt pray. They're in position to the kick a field goal to win the game. But they did that. They executed We will help with a couple of calls to on that. But, hey, we'll take it. Believe me, we will take it. Yeah, I mean, it's there was so much there that we still got to talk about, And that is the 21 point lead that was frittered away. Not the first time that's happened this season. You got to put a lot of that on the coaching What is happening on the defensive side of the ball that we're getting this collapsing? Is it because they're in a pre vent mode and not being aggressive enough help? Help diagnose this disease. We have what God, definitely. I think we go into the prevented prevent mold and I'm talking about the players. I don't think it's the defense's scheme. I just think it's the players said at a certain point it seems like and this starts in the second half. You know, our guys just stop doing some of the fundamental things that we do early in the game or some of the things that we need to do in the game to have success and I talk about from the defensive line. Always talk about shared in the blocks guy getting guys off for you so you could be in position to make a tackle. I talk about squeezing down on the back side, though, So you don't give a running back two ways you don't give him the front side. But you also don't give him the backside where he can run to and then the course guy. We're always talking about getting precious some type of pressure. Maybe not the sack but getting some type of pressure hit on the quarterback so he can feel uncomfortable back there. At some point. We stopped doing those things and then allows teams to get back into games. And that's something that we're definitely gonna have to correct. This. This is a guy that we're talking about. An Alex Smith is one of his legs must be bionic by now, after what the poor guy went through, and yet he had so much time and was able to maneuver around back there. And they still couldn't catch him. And that was just they got to fix that before next week before this season, closes out Yeah. I mean, we knew that Alex Smith wasn't It Wasn't his mobile. He as they used to be, like you said got 17 surgeries. Thank about that 17 surgeries. He's sure to get back. Oh, it really is for him. The endure that to get back to that point, but we kept when he when he did decide the scramble. Maneuver. Meh Pilate, the pocket he killed getting outside. I guys so we got to make sure that we keep contained even on quarterbacks that aren't a big threat with their legs. We still have to make sure we contain those quarterbacks and keep them in the pocket because Alex Smith was getting outside he was buying time. And that was putting out defense is secondary in the bind, man, Because you you can't expect those guys the cover why receivers in the NFL for that long? Well, the other bionic leg out there belonged to Matt Prater and thank the Lord for that and kept kept kept us in it a little bit. We'll see if we can make the season even more interesting. And you keep your head set on young man. Yeah, Okay. I'll make sure I do that guy. Oh, gosh. I got so tickled by that, Lomas. You take care and thanks so much. Thanks, guy. All right? It was what What have finished their the heart attack Cats, Uh, and in the last 16 seconds was incredible. But man, what came before pretty ugly. Let's get back to our phones. The speaker Quick call here before I got to get to the break and we got Rod implement standing by there. All right. Let's get him good after hey, brought good afternoon. Thanks for your patients will try to get to its many of us. We can over the next couple of minutes here, so Your thoughts about this, whether this was a reasonable approach, given what we're looking at, in terms of escalation of hospital cases. Well, coming from me might not think this, but this is logical timing of what the governor's doing. Actually, maybe not as it pertains to restaurants, because as sure, he said, You know, we have to be carried into the household, but the people have to do it. It's their own responsibility, but this does look to be the precipice of this epidemic. Hospital staff is near complete hospitals or near capacity. Positive cases. They're going through the roof deaths are increasing double digits there Several vaccines that are ready today and they were ready even though the third stage of the clinical studies Needed to be done there. Ready today. They're pew. Tix already. And this is the right time to make the final push towards of doing this virus, And I'm even concerned about what's gonna happen when, if possibly it mutates into a coat A stars Kobe 2020 virus.

Matt Stafford gets it downfield, Nice little penalty and And bring on Matt Prater for the 59 yard field. Goal. Try and boom up. It goes. Michael Harris. Steve Courtney are here to talk. Lions football, gentlemen. Okay, we gotta win. Yeah, indeed. There, Kev. You better believe it. Good morning again. Everyone yell. Let's go. Early. Third quarter number nine. Matthew Stafford finds DeAndre Swift. That's a touchdown. That's a 24 3 Lions lead. Gonna hold up, isn't it? Well, this has been Kind of a deal. The Achilles heel if you will, for this Detroit Lions team holding the big lead, that's where we begin to break down with Mo better blues. Michael, How are you this morning? Morning, Steve. Morning, guys. Good to be with you. You know, you take a look at what this lions team in particular mode defensively was up to everything seemed to be in control. Uh, you go to that score that I just alluded to its 24 3. Everything is looking good. On then Alex Smith and that Washington football team had different ideas putting up 21 straight and you're thinking, Mike. Here we go again. Well, yeah, there they went again and then you know they tie the game Lions untie it with a field goal. By Matt Prater. They tie it again. Lands winning on a field goal. By Matt Prater. Look, it's a good win understand Washington's record. Now you got what they're two and seven now one of the greatest opponent, but no, you get something they had to do a couple things they had to do. One of those finally went home game after was it seven straight losses to this year five last year. And in playoff contention. Not really. But they're not out of it because yesterday so and we'll live to play another another months and another week week by week by week and adds up to they did. What they had to do was elegant. No, but it worked. Well, technically, like getting their first home win Mike in 385 days. I don't know if the banks are closed today or not because of the holiday, but we'll check. Meanwhile, let's talk about DeAndre Swift. He gets his first NFL start. 16 Terry's 81 yards. Hey, also, as I mentioned early, contributes receiving wise five receptions for 68 yards and that score. I know it's a running back by committee with the Lions Mike because of Swiss performance. Is he the leader in the clubhouse? Well, he's the chairman of because the committee by no question, I mean, look, we would he had 14 14 carries five catches. That's 19 touches. Adrian Peterson was next with three carries and when one reception And Killian Johnson chipped in with one rush. So absolutely, And this isn't the first time, though, that DeAndre Swift has got the majority of the touch is now I think Adrian Peterson. If you look back on a probably said more games so far of the nine games, we get the most most touches, but he's gotten strip this God gives his killers. He's gotten his receptions and I don't think Was any doubt in anybody's mind that last April, the Detroit Lions found the running back of the present and the immediate future and maybe the long term future to this is really a good football player. Matthew Stafford. Interesting TV cameras. Mike 29 seconds left in the first quarter, showing Matthew get some attention to his throwing hand, had some tape put on it as a matter of fact. Didn't seem to bother him. 24 33 276 Yards three touchdowns R rating of 1 27.8 You take a look at that game winning drive lions Get it first intendant there 25 little past a contest. See fists. That sets up first in 10 overthrow, See Fitz Deep roughing the passer on Chase Young. Thank you very much Lions now 1st and 10 at midfield six seconds remaining. Matthew finds Marvin Jones incomes Matt Prater 59 yard attempt the rest. Mike, as they say, is history that was well done. Well, they just want to go back to one thing on the overthrow on sea for step ball was right on the money. But Quinn because for whatever reason, pulled up a little bit of had been right in his hand. So that was an absolute perfect throw. We could run right through the tunnel into the locker room, but he kept going and caught the ball. But You know the one thing about it talked. You know, Marvin Jones was on the zoom interview after the game and just absolutely no panic and what they did it just, you know, he acts on his side. There's no temptation to catch the ball and keep running and then see if he could score a custody did exactly what he was supposed to do. Miranda's route cut to his left caught the ball went down three seconds left Lions win the game. That's Those guys have played together, Jones and if you and Kenny Golladay what he's healthy for so long, it's almost Nobody how they operate and what? No the last couple of minutes of the first half last couple minutes of the game. This absolutely like us have no panic. It's just routine stuff. They love that part of the game. Evaporator says he hit it a little bit fat. Kind of like one of your nine iron Mike, but obviously got enough of it. Now we'll.

"Let's go out to Chuck Hayes. The Chargers and Panthers are final. Here's Chuck to wrap it all up. Thanks Ridge In the final. The Carolina Panthers breakthrough for their first win of the season. 21 16 over Los Angeles Chargers, but it was not easy as, uh, Rookie Justin Herbert 35 or 49. For 330 yards, one touchdown, one interception right down to the end and a hook and ladder play with six seconds left in the game. Hit Keenan Allen at the 15 Yard line. Tried the lateral it back to Austin, eh, Klar, But the plate was broken up by the Panthers. And that was all she wrote. 10 you, Bridgewater. Very solid game today. 22 28 to 35 1 touchdown Mike Davis, replacing, uh, McCaffrey because of an injury. 13 carries for 46 yards. The Star of the day for the charges is Keenan Allen 13 Receptions 132 Yards, one touchdown, but the story of four turnovers they're going to bite the Chargers today. The final the Panthers 21, the Chargers 16. All right, let's go out to Adam Green in the desert right now, 12 seconds left and a tie game. Here's Adam. Yeah, sure. Most people don't expect the game to be like this. The Cardinal's came in this one to you know the lines Owen, too, but a lot of mistakes and the Cardinals and has left them in this position where they're possibly 12 seconds away from losing this game. The Lions have the ball deep in Cardinals territory, setting up What would potentially be unlikely be the game field goal. There's 12 seconds left to go in this game 23 23 tie game, but the Lions setting up for a game winning field goal attempt by Matt Prater on Jody and mentioned how good Matthew Stafford was, You know, leaving his team downfield lead. He's 44 on this drive 62 yards and just a second ago. I don't know who missed the tackle on Marvin Jones. But whoever that Arizona quarterback was, you have to make that tackle. It allowed him to get an extra 10 yards. I mean that that could be the difference in the game. Right now. You got to make it as tough as you can on the kicker. Right and Crater is one of the best kickers in the league, and he's got one of the biggest legs in the league. So if you subtract those 10 yards, he'd be looking at a 50 plus yard field goal rather than 40 plight yard field goal. It's just the closer you get, the easier it is. Doesn't matter. Matt Prater has got the biggest leg in the league. He'll take him from the 30 yard mark every single time and take his chances. He's money in the bank is why, as I'm concerned, I'd be shocked if he missed his field goes to the Lions are going to get their first win of the season and they didn't blow it for a change, But still, he's got to make the kick with four seconds left. I don't know the exact distance of it. So let's just hang here for a second before we get looks like about 39 to me. Yeah, Yeah, yeah. You're right on the money, and certainly a makeable attempt here for Matt Prater. So we'll see if he does this to give the lines their first win of the year and he knocks it right down the middle. So 26 23 No time left on the clock very well done by Matthew Stafford and company and the lines are in the win column. Let's go to the only game that's still going right now. The Seahawks and the Cowboys. Here's Kevin. Shocking. Yeah, there's a lot of time left in this one just under five minutes in the fourth quarter, and a lot could still happen. We have seen an offensive explosion here, Dak Prescott really coming on strong 415 yards in the air, three touchdowns. He has three receivers with 82 or more yards, Michael Gallop with 138 yards and a touchdown, Cedrick Wilson with 90 yards and a touchdown. Omar Cooper with eight cats for 82 yards, Russell Wilson and strong on the other side, too. 239 yards, four touchdowns. No pics by the locket with three of those touchdowns, but what we've seen here recently after the Seahawks took a 15 point lead in the third quarter, three plain 94 yard drives. Finished off by a 42 yard touchdown pass from Doc Prescott, Cedrick Wilson and then on the next drive for the Cowboys of 43 Yard touchdown pass from Dak Prescott to Michael Gallop, capping off a nine play 89 yard drive. Big time drives for the Cowboys. Right now, they're only trailing by two here with four minutes and 23 seconds left in the fourth quarter. All right, the Broncos and the Bucks or final Here's Bruce, born with the final recap. Yes, which we have gone final and the Buccaneers have defeated the Broncos. 28 to 10. Tom ready, threw three touchdowns on this day to to Mike Evans and want to Chris God when his resume 25 passes Completed out of 38 attempts for 297 yards, and Denver has been a bit of a house of horrors. For Brady. He raises his lifetime record in the mile High city to five. And seven. Meanwhile, a bit of a footnote today was Brett Rippen, nephew of Mark Rippen. Brett came on in relief of Jeff Driscoll, who last week came on in relief of injured starting Q B, Drew lock Rip and made his NFL debut by completing his first eight passes before he was picked off in the end zone by Mike Edwards and Incredible one handed grab returned to the Tampa Bay 29..

Do Footballs Fly Farther in Denver?

"Imagine a fine afternoon in Denver the mile high city behind quarterback Peyton Manning's explosive offensive. The Denver Broncos have amassed attended to record today. They're hosting the Tennessee titans squad. That's lost three of its past four games. The titans. Have put up a good fight over the first half hour of game. Play three seconds before. Halftime. The score is Tennessee Twenty-one Denver seventeen. And her Broncos kicker. Matt Prater trotting out to the Denver forty six yard line. He readies himself for the play of his life. A mighty kick. Sends the ball soaring end over end across the field as a nervous crowd holds its breath. And then the place erupts with ease the ball sails through the yellow crossbar in Tennessee's endzone. It's a longest completed field goal in NFL history. A perfectly made sixty four yard drill. A for metric friends. That's about fifty eight meters perhaps emboldened by prayers heroics. The Broncos go on to crush the titans of the second half, thus clinching a playoff berth. The game. I just described took place on December eighth twenty thirteen today. Prater sixty four yards still holds the all-time distance record. Although his accomplishment has never been bested. Jaw-dropping football kicks are nothing. New in the rocky mountains. Three of the five longest field goals that the NFL has ever seen were made in Denver's mile high stadium. Broncos great Jason Elam nailed a sixty three yarder there in one thousand nine hundred eight a feat that was matched by Sebastian Janikowski when his Oakland Raiders came to town thirteen years later, but to hear some sports fans tell it those three kicks should have Asterix attached the official elevation of Colorado's capital is exactly one mile. That's one thousand six hundred nine meters above sea level. No other NFL cities. It's anywhere close to that. Altitude of the runner up is Glendale Arizona, which is just one thousand feet or three hundred meters. Above sea level Denver's elevation does affect the sporting events up there when football's kicked Broncos home game. It's apt to cover more distance than it would in lower elev-. Nations. And this doesn't just affect three point field goals. Kickoffs tend to go farther as well. There's a book called football physics. The science of the game by one university of Nebraska, professor Timothy gay for it. He ran the numbers on eight different teams from cities that sit more or less at sea level like the Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots that played at least one road game in Denver during the two thousand one or two thousand two seasons. He found that in those two years the visiting kickers from low elevation towns. Enjoyed some great numbers when they went to Denver up in Colorado. There kickoffs traveled seventy point one yards. That's sixty four meters on average back in their respective home fields. The average kickoff distance dropped by seven point three yards. That's six point six meters to understand those numbers will need to talk about air density pretend as I'm sure you want to that you have a jet pack, if you were to take off at sea level and travel through earth's atmosphere in a straight line up the density of the air around you would get lower as your altitude. Creased? This is due to a universal law as the distance between two objects grows the gravitational pull they exert on each other lessons and air molecules are not exempt the pole of earth's gravity is more strongly felt by molecules that are closer to the planet's center at or below sea level, gravitational attraction pacts the molecules tightly together and the weight of the molecules sitting higher up in the atmosphere really bears down on the ones occupying low elevations in consequence the air, it self grows, denser, the closer you get to the surface way up in the mile high city, the Air's only about eighty two percent as dense as it is at sea level a ball kicked skyward in Denver will therefore encounter fewer air molecules than it would in Miami. That's important to note because air molecules create drag drag is a force that pushes against solid bodies as they travel through fluids or gases, a punted or kicked football will run headlong into a steady barrage of air molecules their combined drag will slow it down sometimes dramatic. Early. But remember in ludens, the air molecules are fewer and farther between therefore football's can and often do encounter less drag in Denver Denver's altitude impacts baseball as well. A physicist and Red Sox fan. Alan Nathan reports that fly balls at chorus field. Go proximity five percent farther than they do at Fenway park in Boston yet kicking on the Broncos home turf won't guarantee success for kickers or punters altitude reduces air density, and by extension drag but cold weather increases it and boy can Colorado get chilly. A twenty eleven survey of NFL statistical records found that in outdoor games. Played at temperatures of thirty nine degrees Fahrenheit, that's four degrees celsius or lower field goal. Accuracy drops by one point seven percent while the average partly is about one yard shorter than normal. These findings hold true throughout the league. So it's to Matt Prater credit that his record-breaking field goals split the uprights from sixty four yards out. Even though Denver. It's temperature had fallen. Just fourteen degrees Fahrenheit that's negative ten celsius at the time. Whatever the weather kicking specialists need to be on guard against complacency Denver's reputation as the mecca of ultra-long field goals is well established across the league. According to players that mile high mystique can trick visiting kickers into overestimating their abilities. We could say that when in doubt always air on the side of
