"Top 5 potential trade destinations for Matt Ryan and where Atlanta could send him. Now, I don't know that it entirely makes sense for Atlanta to try to win Matt Ryan. Again, it would make sense with the fact that if they want to rebuild, they might want to get a younger quarterback. They might want to just reset everything and truly do a reset, because it's not working with Matt Ryan. Maybe they want to trade him away, get a king's ransom for him. But I don't know that I would trade away Matt Ryan. I try to keep building around him. However, as a fan, who does believe in Matt Ryan? I want Matt Ryan out of there. Does a trade make sense? I'm not entirely sure, but I want to rescue Matt Ryan from this horrible land of falcons offensive line, this bad situation with a coach. I don't really believe in. It's a bad organization. So the best team, I think you could send Matt Ryan too. It's like a dream situation. I don't know if it works financially. But the Cleveland Browns have a lot of weapons down there in Cleveland. They run the ball well. They have some good receivers. They got a couple of good tight ends. Austin hooper used to play with Matt Ryan in Atlanta. Imagine sending Matt Ryan to Cleveland. What's the problem in Cleveland right now? Injuries is one. Number two, baker's not playing very well. Baker Mayfield, the young quarterback. I mean, the options are open. Atlanta, Cleveland is looking at everything they can do to try to get better quarterback play next year. I solved your problem. Go get Matt Ryan. That'd be incredible. So that's one option. Option number two, and by the way, maybe Cleveland sends baker to Atlanta and they try to build around Baker Mayfield, I don't know. If you get baker in a couple of first round picks, do you send if you're a Cleveland and you can get Matt Ryan for Baker Mayfield and a first round pick or two, I think you make that deal. Now can they afford to make that deal? I don't know, like financially, can they pay him with their salary cap? I don't know. That's a question for someone else to figure out. I wish I knew that answer. I put this together in my account. It sounds like a fun trade. The Denver Broncos is another Matt Ryan could go where it's another quarterback needy team that's got some good weapons. They're ready to win. They just need good quarterback play. Hey, Matt Ryan can solve that problem as well. Now the Pittsburgh Steelers is a team. They got Big Ben about to retire, and they're another reason why. So all these teams, the top 5 teams that they've met Ryan could go to are all AFC teams.

"Mac Jones. We watched the Kansas City Chiefs against Jordan love. Was it last week two weeks ago? I don't remember how recent it was. But they had this really great game plan where they blitzed Jordan love Tony young quarterback. They played man coverage on the outside and said, you have to beat us throwing the ball downfield. We're gonna take away your running game. We are going to blitz you a ton, play cover zero and challenge you to beat our man coverage. Jordan love was incapable of doing that. He couldn't identify blitz very well. He couldn't beat man coverage. I'd love to find out, could Mac Jones beat the man coverage from the Kansas City chief. Does that even possible? That would be really I have to know. That sounds amazing to find out. I really, really want to see that matchup. And I think that would talk about a wild card weekend. Patriots against Kansas City would be an amazing matchup. I want to see that I am now rooting for that. I didn't think I would be. But I very much want to see that. All right. Let me see if there's any other notes before we get into a potential Matt Ryan trade. The offensive line is bad. Oh man, here's something I didn't talk about yet from this game. So Atlanta through not one, not two, not three, even but four interceptions in a row on their final four drives. It's awful. Matt Ryan was 19 for 28 passing a 153 yards. Zero touchdowns, two interceptions. He's had a really bad couple of games. But on the final four drives of the game, Atlanta through four interceptions. The first one was kind of a throw the mat Ryan was forcing downfield. Nothing was really there. He's getting kids he throws. I can't blame that Ryan at this point for an interception. I've got late in the game in the fourth quarter. Your offense has done nothing all day. You're getting more and more desperate. You're trying to make a play. By the fourth quarter, you down a bunch of points, you're trying to make something happen. I don't blame Matt Ryan at all for throwing a bad interception. Just trying to make something happen downfield. On the second intercept throws a ball a little bit high along the left sideline, receiver tips it up, JC Jackson grabs it. Almost a pick 6, by the way that JC Jackson stepped out of bounds, so Matt ran at two interceptions..

This is strong opinion sports episode 400 and 14 welcome in. Today's episode is really fun. We're going to talk about there is a night football, the falcons and the Patriots. We're going to talk about hard knocks, the colts are now doing an in season hard knock series, which has been, I got some stuff to say about that. We'll talk about NFL week 11 do a preview, share some of the top games coming up this weekend. Got a very, very healthy ask Zach segment. We'll talk a lot about Matt Ryan, the falcons quarterback. And I want to start today by letting you know, tomorrow's the day. Tomorrow is the day I'm gonna buzz my hair. Again, I'm gonna get in the shower, my fiance is gonna buzz it off. It's one of those things where and I don't think my hair looks like terrible or anything. But it's funny how much it affects your confidence when you look in the mirror and you're like, I don't like it. And I looked at my hair, I got out of the shell a couple minutes ago. I shout for every episode. And my hair was like straight down and I couldn't fix it. I'm like, I'm just so I just, man, I hate having hair. It's so annoying, it's so frustrating. I feel like I've been talking about it for a couple episodes. Tomorrow I finally have some time. Friday opens up a little bit, and I'm like, it's going to it's time to shave the head again. Let's start by talking about Thursday at football. On Thursday Night Football, the Patriots beat the falcons 25 to zero. And the game could not have gone more opposite for Atlanta in New England. Atlanta, it's bad. It's really bad right now. I think in the last two games they've had probably their worst stretch of football. You know, right now feels like a low point for the Atlanta Falcons. They lost on Sunday, horribly to Dallas. They lost again out there in a football. In the last two games, Atlanta has been outscored 68 to three. Horrible, horrible, embarrassing, bad performances. They lost. Gosh, 68, -25 should be 43, so they lost 43 to three. On Sunday, here now today they lost Thursday night, they Thursday, but they lost 25 nothing New England. It's awful. I don't think that things can get much worse from here. And we got a question on Patreon. You can write into the show on Patreon. Patreon dot com forward slash Zack Schumer..

Panthers' Matt Rhule Is Making a Bid for Best NFL Coach This Season
"I wanna talk about the best young coach football. And it's not necessarily sean mcveigh. It's clear that it's not only an indictment on the new york jets operation. But what you're seeing was sam darnold in the carolina. Panthers is pretty remarkable the knock on darnold out of college there to know with too comfortable wins but the knock on darnold out of college and i watched every snap was his accuracy issues. What does he completing now. Seventy percent of his throws. He doesn't make mistakes total composure. It would be easy to just say. This is an indictment on the jets but instead of just the negative side. Let's look realistically at the positive side. Not only has met rule made darnold more comfortable. This defense has twenty one quarterback hits and ten sacks in two games. What does that tell you. The culture of the carolina. Panthers is headed in the right direction. It also tells you. This is a remarkable stat on matt rule. The coach carolina going back to the beginning of last year. You will not believe this. Carolina leads the nfl with the fewest. Three and outs that with teddy bridgewater and start with. Sam darnold. nothing about that not mahomes. Not lamar jackson. Not tom brady. Not derek carr not matt ryan not russell wilson not aaron rodgers. No the fewest three and outs matt rule. Teddy bridgewater and sam darnold but this is a offensive line. That outside of right tackle graded poorly left. Tackle all the way to right guard. What matt rule is doing with this sub optimal often. It's of line. The scarce number of three out the revamping rebooting of sam darnold is really mind-blowing

"I see in this offense that i've done at different points in my career and i think that helps from a learning standpoint. This season is going to be different for the nfl. Seventeen games for the first time obviously know sixteen games scheduled in place for almost forty years actually over forty years as a player. How do you view seventeen game. Do you view it with disdain. The viewers hey give me a chance to to pass some stats here over. The course of the rest of my career is. is it something where you're kind of indifferent. How do you see the seventeenth game. Now that it's implemented and it's something you're going to have to deal with you know. I think it's the statistics part of it. You know it doesn't really matter I think i probably indifference the right word to say. I don't know if that's the perfect way to describe it but it is. You know it's. It's what our schedule is this year and so not that i necessarily agree with it to start thought. Sixteen was fine. But you know it wasn't my call to make it. So they put a seventeenth on their. It gives us another chance to go out there and In in cut it loose and play. And so you know you have to prepare yourself for the long haul and so i guess i am a little bit indifferent as another game. We have on schedule and another game. That we've gotta find a way to win the division for you guys very different this year. Of course you and drew brees been saying for a long time. He's now retired. james winston. You're going to be the starter. There carolina kind of influx for few years donald. Now in and of course the buccaneers or the buccaneers just won the super bowl. They brought everybody back. But from your perspective. How do you see the division. Because really you guys have had all season of change. Carolina's certainly has well new orleans. Certainly team probably the change of anybody. So how how do you see it as you go toward the regular season. i think it's a tough division. There's no no question about that. You know you look at two of the best defense in the league. Last year in tampa new orleans returning like you mentioned a lot of players a lot of guys on that side of the ball. I think carolina was was a young defense That was talented last year and has some really good players and they continued to draft on the defensive side of the ball And i think they'll be better and improved this year. So we've got our work cut out for us..

That titus partner with the nfl to switch to cold water washing You know it's it's a really good opportunity. You know for for people to to make the switch from water to cold water.

"I mean you talk about the talent. That's just been exiled from there. They give away the andre hopkins for a used practice ball and a slice of pizza. You know they trade away they lose will fuller now. Everything going on with the shawn watson. And i love david kelly. I think he's a great guy. Obviously an nfl lifers coach. I think this is a terrible situation for him to be a first time. Nfl head coach all the dysfunction of the offseason. There's no team worse than the texans. No organisation in sports worth the texas so mouthful i. I'm inclined to agree with that over thinking too much They've overtaken the knicks. Twenty years. dysfunction. I i have to agree with you. Know i thought about the lions because the line just had nobody there there the rest of town. But i like dan campbell like that. Coaching staff and goth. Is i get it. He's not an elite quarterback. I'm not trying to sell that. But he's an nfl quarterback. I think they will win. Some games simply based off the fact that i do believe they will be coach while i do believe that god will steward them I don't think there's any chance in hell houston's Five which i don't think three no i don't either you division. They're not beaten indie. Then they're not beating tennessee. And i'm not even a loved indianapolis indianapolis who's going to beat them ten times out of ten jacksonville like urban. Meyer scares the hell out. Any jacksonville's more talented that houston. I mean just a quarterback throw the jaguars into that worst team pile too i. There's still a relevant that. I forgot about their over under six and a half and i was like who causing the overrun. Who thinks winning. Seven games you seen urban meyer. Coaching state. Yeah they have they have no rhythm at all on offense they have no identity. There's not much talent around trevor lawrence. The offensive line is a sieve. See i think you could have to. Afc south teams picking one and two There's my bones would extra is very very possible right. Your neck of the woods new york football giants. How much trouble are they in with daniel jones. And they're left tackle second year left. Tackle andrew thomas because your watch the preseason game against new england and it's a preseason game andrew. Thomas was brutal game jones rose pick.

"But i like the saints. The saints are are good team. And i just trust on peyton. I trust him to get the most out of that team. Do that division outside of the box. You make a sleeper case for any of those teams you really and i think one of them will emerge as a contender. So i'll take my shot in the saints in the afc. I struggled to find sleeper. But i'll throw this one out there. I think denver's interesting denver's really good. The quarterback situation is not. Which is why i really struggled with finding that sleeper. If the quarterback situations indecent addenbrooke. We're gonna make the playoffs. But it's it's not. I reason i told him in there. I think bridgewater's the right pick like lot lock is gonna throw a million interceptions for you. He led the league last year and picks and he played thirteen games a bridgewater. I didn't the broncos basically. We need a caretaker caretaker. We're gonna win games twenty to seventeen. That's out now. Can they do that in today's nfl. In the division with two teams that are score a lot of points. I don't know. But if i had to pick one in the issue that's go it's funny. You bring up the broncos map. Because i mentioned on my podcast on friday i did a three up three down segment the three teams that i'm high on three teams that i'm going on today after watching the preseason training camp and i had the broncos leading off my three down segment because you know i i love the supporting cast around teddy bridgewater. I think k. j. ham were cortlandt sudden. Jerry judy noah font you go to battle with the service of a quarterback every day of the week with the supporting cast and i love the talent. They have one defense. Von miller is a future hall of famer here. I just teddy bridgewater. i think he's a bridge to nowhere. You don't have the young quarterback you're trying to develop and if you win seven or eight nine games. You're not gonna be good enough to make the playoffs. You're not going to be bad enough to be picking at the top of the board so just don't understand that move but if you wanna sleeper team out of the afc. I'm gonna go and i. It's unbelievable that were saying it's unbelievable bill belichick and the patriots to mir the sleeper toke. And you know. I watched a lot of new england this preseason. They played the eagles. So that was the game was on here in the second week of the preseason so i watched that game i saw mac jones moving the ball down the field arm strength for days pinpoint accuracy can operate within the system and then he goes up against the giants and join practices android. Sit up jordan. Run out of espn short of the practice. Adamant something of thirty four of forty moved the ball really well on sunday night. In the preseason game if mack jones can perform at that level when they go out and they get nelson or and john who smith one hundred henry and they bring in mattru don who we talked about earlier to anchor that front seven on defense look i. I don't think anybody's unseating the buffalo bills. Except for maybe vid. But i think that if there's a team that can push for a card on that side of the bracket maybe pull off an upset or to an afc favorite. I like my chances with ballot. Check if he starts mack jones. That's a good call. That's a good call anytime you sleep. Involves bella check your shape which one week one game..

"You're good luck with that didn't happen. Nba kind of prescient that age. Now nobody's doing that. It look if you wanna go trade half your franchise for a guy who's facing almost two dozen civil suits that's on you about tell you it tells me a couple of things number one i wrote about this and you just said it even at the. Don't get shawn watson tells you all about they think tour everybody's been parsing. There's a million ways. They clearly don't believe him you you give three. I in two seconds away for a quarterback if you think too good by the way you ended up being off and they give a i in a second because texans on time. It's like you're bringing in some streak and if you believed in to what you would be bringing anybody. I don't think the charges are going out looking for a quarterback right now. They believe in just herbs so it also tells me by the way the dolphins are getting somewhat desperate. Because this is a franchise. It has not been doing as you title game since nineteen ninety-two they've not won a super bowl since nineteen seventy-three and i get to shawn watson so great player. Destroy the stuff off the field just talking about onfield perform. She's a top five quarterback in the week. Yeah no doubt but we don't live in a world where you just get to strip out everything else and everything else does come with it and right now. He is incredibly embattled. You've noise he's gonna play football game and not get the dolphins fan who says hey. We didn't make destroyed debt. You're just years pontificating. Look maybe maybe. That's that's true that made the trade yet but they're gonna take any. It speaks volumes about where they are as an organization the threshold that they're willing to put up with as an organization and speech about to a and. Hey yeah we took this kid overall asher but we've seen him now for a year and a camp preseason and we're good we're good we we've seen enough. Yeah and the other thing at play here is that are some pretty heinous accusations and in today's climate and in any climate really they deserve to be aired and i. I'm inclined to believe when a woman makes these kind of allegations their legitimate at and that they should be brought to the four. And that's what i think. Should inspire a lot of caution about any team trading shawn watson but this whole situation in the way that the houston texans in the nfl was handled. This roger goodell not putting shawn watson on the commissioner's exempt. The houston texans. Not sending him home. Suspending him for conduct detrimental for the team or keeping him inside and saying listen. We understand why you're here. We can't dock your pay because of this but you're going to go and lift during practice. We're not putting you on the field with the media present. We're not putting you on the field in practice to eliminate distraction but none of those things happened and you're still hearing the dolphins. According to charles robinson and other reports this weekend being involved in active discussions reportedly trying to trade for deshaun watson so it makes me wonder if while the fbi and the police departments and all of the civil attorneys are conducting their investigations. If the nfl doesn't know something that everybody else doesn't. Because i just can't imagine with. Everything happened with josh brown and the giants a couple years ago everything had happened with ray rice and how that situation just exploded and change the way that we view domestic violence in terms of athletes..

"Is going to be year where they talked a little bit. Anyway about jackson be throwing the ball more. We're gonna we're gonna try to balance it out a little bit now. You might really have to throw the ball a little bit. More defense takes a little setback. Now dobbins and i think if you look at their off-season you're telling you they want throw the ball more. They went outside. Sammy walk drafted or shot. Bateman and. I like to me who also got hurt by the way so it's really been a rough camp rave it's a great and bateman is not gonna start the season healthy walk into a guy's always dealing with something and and has a little something this year. Now he he might be their week one but walk into guy who's often injured. This is going to be a lot of pressure on lamar. A lotta of this is not only to win. Hey you to earn this contract. And i get if people say what's not fair he already earned it this. Nfl if he doesn't play this year. I'm not saying he wouldn't get a contract that he would struggle to get alan money mahomes money. He would but if he goes out to he's great then he's got every right to say look. I should be paid way. More josh allen was an mvp so it's a huge year for him. And i think the burdens got a little bit. Heavier adoptions being hurt no. I agree and i spoke to an agent about this a few weeks ago after josh allen. Scientists mega deal with the bills. And lamar jackson is one of the biggest winners of that contract. Because he has the track record. He's been to the twice. He has the mvp under his belt. That's an area where you look at baker mayfield. And i've said this before i've written it. I think the browns are the biggest threat to the kansas city chiefs. Going seventeen and i think the browns of the biggest threat to knock off kansas city and go to a super bowl. And if that's the case maker mayfield gets to cash in on the bet on himself going into this year. But that's kinda where mayfield finds himself in that mega-contract equation that he's betting on himself with four improved supporting cast and a much better situation on both sides of the ball whereas lamar jackson. He's already done it so if he goes out and the ravens win eleven games if they'd go to the playoffs again. Regardless of how it ends he can go into john harbaugh's office he can go into the front office and say listen my first three years. I took you the playoffs three times. I have an mvp under my belt. My i you know lead you to a hypothetical division title a wild card berth without my number one running back without my hotshot rookie receiver x. Amount of games and you can kind of throw his hand on the table and say this is the dollar amount that i'm looking for and if you're the ravens you kind of inclined to have to pay him because what are the better options you're going to be picking in the mid twenties or later if you make the postseason and if you.

"It's a great product and it was actually life changing a lot of ways. And if you're not manscaping you put it best. Not only are you doing yourself a disservice. But you're probably going to be spending a lotta time alone. If people realize you're not manscaping and using the man's scape product the biggest story coming out of the weekend on the field jay dobbins getting hurt the big story off the field. The reports from charles robinson from mike florio from other sources. Well that shawn watson is still being courted significantly by the dolphins. We'll get to that in a minute. But first lombardo. Let's start off with the ravens. This is a team that uses their rushing attack more than anybody in and dobbins clearly was going to be a number one bag. Yes because edwards. Still there he's a good player but dobbins everybody around the league talking about how good he was going to be this year. How much of an important player. He was going to be in the way that they play that offense and not even running the ball but also throwing it to him and he got hurt actually on a play where he caught a pass screen pass near the red zone. How much of an impact do you think this has on baltimore. You think you think they can replace him with gus edwards and be all right or is it something where going to cripple the amount. I don't think there's going to cripple them at all and on couch that by saying that i think. Jk dobbins has a chance to be a real impact player really proved that last year. He's a guy that is you talked about just as dangerous as a pass catcher as a runner. But let's not overlook gus edwards. Here's a guy. I know in limited touches but he averages five point two yards per carry. He can push for double digit touchdowns. I think the ravens are going to go shopping for running back help especially now that you have cuts being made by four pm on tuesday team's gotta be down to fifty three players. But i think the the ravens are going to be a team that just keeps plugging along. You bump guts edwards up on the depth chart. Maybe you go pick up a corey clement. If the giants released him maybe you go pick up a draft. Pick who might not have made it onto a roster somewhere and you go with a two headed rushing attack but their main source on the ground matt real notes lamar jackson and everything else. Kinda complements 'em so yes. It's a big loss but i'm not overstating and i'm not gonna over exaggerate. How much this is going to cripple or hurt the ravens. Yeah i i tend to agree like i think it's more about enrollment system and the threat of lamar jackson. Then during else. Now i i will say kind of in the same way the way you went. Look losing dobbins. It does matter but he is the best back on that team and he's by far the best receiving back..

Who Will Pick Kyle Pitts in Thursday's NFL Draft?
"All right. Let's have fun here with. Kyle pits blank will select kyle pits right. I think it's the falcons. I mean friscos. Been talking about this for some time. He doesn't think that the falcons are gonna take a quarterback he thinks arthur blank is all in on on matt ryan for another year to have a new coach and the new general manager. And here's the thing like if you trade down four. And i suspect it'll be teams interested in trading up to four to get whether it's trae lance macaroni justin fields. If you're the falcons if you move down if you move down you're not getting cockpits. That's just the end the conversation because either the bengals. The dolphins entertainment five or six and presumably. You're not trading with those teams already have quarterbacks. So that's the math you're doing and if you're not getting likely to march as we saw a report on monday for peter king that maybe julio jones could be moved with which seems crazy what they need a cap space Could you turn down for. Cornerback if the falcons you could but again what gives you more value in terms of making that football team better. I think it's how pet. So if i'm the falcons and i'm not taking justin feels matteo's trae lands i'm sampling. Taking cup pits. Janssen the blank blank. We'll take pets. I think it's it's atlanta. But i also be surprised if the team traded up with the falcons maybe even take pits like ryan saying you know the train up to the quarterback but you know teams fall in love your dallas. You know thousand the four but you know if a team really loves him that much and it's hard not to love that much than you could see. Maybe a team being overly aggressive. I think it was on On the nfl network this morning on good morning football there was a segment that they do with the giants traded up. You know. I don't know who is doing the job. Esau just a screen grab of it on twitter but the giants gave their first or second ebony ingram and something else to move up to four to get pits and it was you know something that on paper make some sense but you know. Obviously something is not likely to happen but still i would say it's four is where he goes. But the falcons do make some sense especially they decided we want from me jonesing. Another playmaker
What Should the Atlanta Falcons Do With the 4th Pick?
"Talk about another quarterback order player Who people these days. Certainly no. and that's matt ryan about that for a transition Terrific quarterback for very long time. 2016 was his best year was the mvp of the league with the falcons and took that team all the way to the super bowl and then from that point forward it has been sued of a steady decline for the team despite making the postseason in two thousand seventeen. They've won just eighteen games over the last three years and with that regression the falcons might hit the reset button in this draft with ryan being almost thirty six. They have a new head coach. And arthur smith they have the fourth pick. Overall general manager is teri faulk no and he said quote. We wanna stack good quarterbacks. Its prime time to do it. When you have a player like matt ryan because when you can get in the white quarterback you don't have that pressure play them right away so it opens up so many possibilities and we have to make sure we're evaluating those positions and we feel good about what we where we are there a lot of different ways to take that it certainly what i would say if among other things i wanted someone to come and try and trade for my fourth pick in this draft so teddy. I'm giving it to you directly here if you were the falcons right now. Are you looking to bring in players to help matt ryan try and win a championship again or are you looking to draft his eventual replacement. Said like i said about the smokescreen season. There you go right there you make everyone think that you're okay with draft a quarterback in developing under matt ryan. But you gotta take advantage of the quarterback desperation which is in this draft and everyone one maybe sneak up if they're guy falls to four and go ahead and get him because i think they should build and they need to usually head coaches come in. And they'll want to stack pile not quarterbacks but draft picks in terms of building a foundation model for their team so i would say definitely take advantage of the fourth overall pick trade down. Try to see if you can get some building.
Philadelphia Eagles Sign Super Bowl 47 MVP Joe Flacco
"Big news coming out of philly. Yesterday joe flacco agreeing to a contract with the eagles. It's a one year deal. Three and a half million dollars. Guaranteed the opportunity to win. Four million more in incentives. Now what does this mean. As far as the eagles and their draft plans remember. They only have one quarterback on the roster until this and that's jalen hurts and they have the six pick in the draft and as you see mel kiper junior and his latest mock has been taking the superstar receiver tamar chase from lsu which would be awfully knife or any quarterback that they have there but so does this mean mel again. It is not your expectation mel with us field. Yates as well here today. It does this mean and again. You're you're mock has them taking chase anyway but the signing flacco does that in your view. Close the door on any possibility that they draft a quarterback at number six. I think they would even going in before flacco. You think about. Joe flacco wise ian eagle thinking about the baltimore raven connection with the philadelphia eagles. Joe douglas and joe flacco who drafted where the want super bowl with the baltimore ravens. So there's that always that connection you can always go to. Guys are picked up later in their career. So for joe. Douglas bringing in a joe flacco you think about what he was doing with the jets in terms of the situation there. And then you've got the philadelphia eagles their same type of thing that raven connections. So i think when you look backing up jalen hurts right now. I don't think he's a threat. I think jalen that guy get jomar chase and go four with him and help jalen hurts and then reassess after the year's over that's what they will do that influence with the raven organization in philadelphia as a factor. I think it's a factor throughout the green and there always is joe. Flacco is a good backup came in the league. Same your matt ryan did and that ryan slow playing great football of course super bowl but Joe flacco did. But i think it's a good situation to have joe flacco there behind. The jalen hurts. Jalen hurts gets hurt. Your season's not over joke and still play. But i think this is jalen team right now. I thought it was carson wentz's team that didn't work out. But i think if you get your march help jalen hurts and then you make your decision air to this year whether in the twenty twenty two draft you have to think about drafting. A young quarterback failed. Same question to you. Does this mean in your mind that the eagles are out of the quarterback market at six. It does not greedy in. Here's a simple reason. Why i agree with everything else that i'm going to double back to that in just a moment. I just have long believed that if you are convinced. A player can be a franchise quarterback that if he's available at six. You have to at least consider it. If you're philadelphia. Now that being said all the indications this offseason from the previous reporting from more about the eagles plan to build around jalen hurts this year plus the signing of joe flacco which at least gives them a veteran option at the very least relatively modest priced by the way three point five million dollars. There are so many signs at the plan. This year is to find ways to make jalen hurts better so i still believe that ultimately the eagles are gonna be in prime position to land one of the best pass catchers in this year's draft a quarterback should not be entirely ruled out. And that's just me having seen the league long enough to know that sometimes teams do things the catch us by surprise even if they should not have caught us by surprise
Dallas Cowboys Reach Multi-Year Deal With Star Quarterback Dak Prescott
"Salary cabin number for two thousand and twenty one is going to be twenty two point two million dollars all right now. Head dak prescott. In franchise tag again this will happen in a procedural sense but had to cow tried to go at this with dak prescott on the franchise tag for the two thousand and twenty one season. We've talked about this a number of times. That value would have been thirty. Seven point seven million dollars so the fact that the cow is now have him onto the books. We're talking about the value that is on the books in the books. However you want to look at the books whether they're e books or physical books whatever the case may be that value is now twenty two point two million dollars now. I know that we have all said some things about the dallas cowboys but they are not complete dummies. They surely budgeted for the franchise tag value. Because let's be honest. They came about twenty four hours. We think you know. Close to having the actually placed the franchise tag and maybe carried out with that prescott. So the cowboys have room for the franchise tag at the very least so you look at that quake matt that adam schefter was kind enough to do for you. That is fifteen point. Five million dollars that the dallas cowboys suddenly have because they've got this long term deal with that prescott. This is something that we've been saying for two years now. If you do this you can. You can kick this down the road. You can prorate it you can extended you can whatever term you want to put on it. You can spread the impact of the deal out of the signing bonus of the overall guaranteed money out over the lives of the contract so it doesn't hit you all at once. That's the one killer about the franchise tag is that it is fully and completely guaranteed in franchise tag is a one year deal so the value of it last year and dak prescott was on the tag for thirty one point. Four million dollars. The two thousand twenty dallas cowboys had to absorb that value all at once and they would have had to have done it again. Here in two thousand and twenty one but because they have adjusted that they now have fifteen and a half million dollars that they were seemingly budgeting for dak prescott that now they can apply to different areas. Maybe it is a safety. Maybe it's a defensive end. Maybe it's a defensive tackle. Maybe it's you know an offensive tackle. But they want swing tackled death whatever the case may be. We know that the cowboys obviously hold the tenth overall. Pick in the draft. They could go a number of different directions there. They wanna cornerback kayla farther patrick's retain do wanna take one of the tackles and rashawn slater as all this is. This is setting up and this is an important thing. I want you to hear me here and watch me here. You cannot waste this money. If dallas cowboys the whole point and getting this done with thac prescott besides obviously establishing having the best player on your team for the foreseeable future the point in doing this is to alleviate the salary cap space now. And i don't like the term when now if you watch us often you know that but you look state of the nfc east. It is by sudha. I mean the philadelphia. Eagles are a disaster. The new york giants doping daniel jones is legitimate. The washington football team has a great team but is void of the most important position of the game and a quarterback. Maybe they'd get somebody this cycle as we all expect quarterbacks to change teams at a higher rate than usual but the case in point is at the dallas cowboys are now. We're going to see this all day on tuesday by the way and we'll talk about it of course but they're going to be overwhelming favorites to win the nfc streit and you think about the conference that they plan is really a contender in the nfc. And i mean that with all due respect to the reigning champion tampa bay buccaneers. But you've got the bucks you've got the green bay packers and then who scares you. May maybe the rams you believe in matthew stafford but the point is thinking about the afc. I mean the. Afc has the bills and the ravens and the chiefs and the titans and the steelers and the browns. I mean you could go. A number of different ways. Did the colts have carson. Wentz ends up getting his act together and so the cowboys play in the weakest division in the weaker conference and so now they have this opportunity to really kind of take their future in the here and now they have fifteen and a half million dollars that they weren't necessarily planning on having use it and if they don't use it it is all for not so i mean we are all imploring the dallas cowboys to ultimately use this salary cap space. This is a very very very luxurious gift. That they now have been afforded that they didn't previously have so shattered of course to the dallas cowboys. Let's see here let's move. I'm i wanna talk of course about the bonus the dak prescott because well. It's stupid large. I mean it's amazing. Dak prescott has now the largest signing bonus in the nfl. You look at joe flacco. Once upon a time. Got forty million. Dollars matt ryan forty six and a half. Remember if you're on the fence about this value. We've talked about this before as well. Matt ryan became the first quarterback in nfl history to average over. He had thirty but to average at least thirty million dollars per year with his new contract that he signed with the atlanta falcons in two thousand and eighteen. That was three years ago. Dak prescott signed a four six year. Deal whatever you wanna call it. That was three years ago. They matt ryan signed that he was the first quarterback to hit the thirty million dollars a year. Mark prescott just hit forty but the reality and we've been saying this forever is that there are so many deals coming around the bend. Josh allens gotta get paid. Lamar jackson's gotta get paid. Baker mayfield's got to get paid extra calories. He's going to get paid the year after that. It's going to be time for joe burrow to finally get paid and when all of those players get paid this forty million dollars a year. Mark the dak prescott got this one hundred twenty six million dollar. Total guaranteed is sixty six million dollar signing bonus all these things that are currently the top of the nfl. The most in nfl history. That's the verbiage in determining that you're hearing associated with this and it's all literally true but it's all going to get pushed down because all of these players on this list. Joe flacco matt ryan matthew stafford at fifty million signing bonus. Aaron rodgers fifty. Seven and a half russell wilson not going to be a dallas cowboy now by the way sixty five million dollars. Dak prescott topped that all of these quarterbacks in all likelihood we'll top that that's the reality of the nfl things are always moving in one direction. It is up
"Busted Bears YearEnder 2020" with Dave Wannstedt - EP039 - burst 3
"Do you think that the right direction for the bears would be to. Maybe put all their eggs in one basket and trade for the shawn watson or completely changed their mentality at the quarterback position. Well i kept them all. I would keep mitch. Because i when you look at mitch numbers and that's what i'm trying to figure out. What are you valuate. Mitch on if you look at his numbers this year. From the standpoint of touchdowns the interceptions and completion percentage and you know he. He played winning football. I mean you know it's gonna be aaron rodgers absolutely not but if they're gonna get you the playoffs and now you gotta get into the playoffs. Now you run the football you play defense and you got a chance to go to the super bowl. That's my personal opinion. Okay but now. Here's the issue you're going to you know if you're let's say gonna make the trade for veteran quarterback because and this has to play into it. I mean george mccaskey's smart enough to know that the clock is running on that defense. They have in my opinion another year or two. And then it's going to be. Mac is going to be over the hump. You're going to have quinn. You're going to have to obey then. All of a sudden that they're they're they're an old group and their contracts are up and now you re starting from scratch right there. So you know i i i guess what i'm making the point is that you know if they want to get the most of this defense. They need to do it right now. A s a p and so. I think that's probably should've played into this decision. But now if you are. Let's throw out a veteran quarterback. If you're matt ryan and atlanta or matthew stafford detroit Are you gonna say you gonna pick the bears over the patriots because right now. No i mean and right now. The same thing with assistant coaches. I mean whoever this defensive coordinator coming in if they bring somebody in there not to give them a three year contract because it right. Now it's it's throughout the league the handwriting's on the wall. They have to win this year. Everybody's fired that's that's a tough spot. I very very tough. Spot for ryan. Pay matt nagy to be into it because there's a lot of jobs open. We're guys are starting from scratch. And they're not on the last year of their deal so i think you've gotta look at the coaching end of it. And you gotta look a veteran player. That might have two years

"matt ryan" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"And what happens at quarterback? I just enough to know them. Are you guys into this old Matt Ryan chatter? I don't know. Matt Ryan's good, but I don't know if he doesn't have time behind the line is gonna be the same as Garoppolo. I don't get it. I want to say that you are listening to the pollen back podcast. Paul McCaffrey. Tony Ryan! Shannon! Caylor. Tony, I'm glad you you said this and Shannon. I want to throw it to you in a minute. Same topic. Same question. I'm a Garoppolo supporter. I think that you're right, Tony. I think the fact that people are burying this guy. It doesn't make sense to me. The on people are so quick to want to escort him out. I'm saying I'm with you. I don't want any aging on them down backside of his career. Matt Ryan, who is a great quarterback. I got no problem with that, Ryan, but I don't want like an old guy who's gonna quarterback his first season. I want like the guy who's gonna kind of grow with Shanahan offense, which is kind of where I feel like Garoppolo is like no, he's not perfect. He's not the best ever. But he's good enough to take it to a Super Bowl, and he's still learning the system. This injury riddled kind of season has been a problem like you said, But no, it's frustrating. I do the show with Murph and everybody All Garoppolo sucks. He sucks. Well, What's the answer that Nick Bolin's? I don't think so, man. Taylor. It's such a bandwagon. Take the Garoppolo sucks. Well, I just saw a tweet yesterday. I kind of wish I remember who did. It was one of the night might have been David and party. I forget you, but saying that the Niner injured list is worth over $100 million in payroll right now. Everybody injured. And it's like that's just insanity and think about the healthy old line. What Garoppolo did last year and a healthy defensive line and healthy defense. What grew up close able to do because the defense um there was a balanced team on both sides of the ball that they're completely out of whack right now. Hopefully, they get moster and Deebo and Sherman back for a week, 12 and if they do, who knows, there might be some light at the end of the tunnel. But I just I refused to bash Garoppolo when literally he was in the Super Bowl last year with a healthy, balanced team. Yeah, I think Garoppolo is really good. And I think if you can upgrade it's like anything, there's always somebody better. But unless unless you have the homes, I guess, but you know, if you have grapple over is really good. You know, you're not just gonna chuck him aside and just go with some draft pick that you don't really know if you can't get a great You know, somebody that you really believe in. Obviously, Shanahan and Lynch believe in Garoppolo, and he has been really good. Especially when they have their running backs. Yes. Um, our woman no call. Do you think Tevin Coleman. Getting him back with Mostert is like having the two of them means that we could have a running game again Or is Coleman kinda just a non factor? Whether he comes back or not? I mean, I think it's better to have the both of them back because that way you can show defense is different. Looks like You know, I I hear what you're saying about seven Coleman overall like I mean, he had that one monster game against the Vikings in the playoffs last year. But outside of that, like he was more of like a plug in guy right? Like he wasn't a lead back. Really? With the exception of that game. What I think having a most of it out there, even if most it's only 75 80%. He's proven to me. He's a really, really capable NFL running back. So look if you give most or 15 carries and mixing I mean, this is an ideal situation, but I don't know. Maybe 567 for Tevin Coleman. I think that's a pretty good balance, at least how I'd like to see it, but no, Shannon. Yeah, man having Rahim back, I think he is a huge art. Why can't they get the passing game going Because they haven't been able to run the football it all weeks now, Tony exactly, man. And when defense is know that they're not going to run the ball, they just zero in on the passing game and it Zoe over and they conflicts Mullins and they could And you know Mullins is not. I mean, he's a He's a decent quarterback. He's again He's not going to get to be the savior. But again, it's your second string quarterback. And maybe we'll see both ARD CJ bettered the great It's a great I'm gonna go ahead and say I like CJ. Both are but I can't even stop saying it now, but far it by the way, C J is a good dude. And I like his Duke's not unlike Peter Frampton. Lucky, like grew his hair out and stuff. I like it. I kind of like the way he's looking during the pandemic. Yes, Shannon beside Under through and by. I mean, at least 10 or 15 yards, though I'm not gonna hold the corn for that one pro because he's got a cannon A quote unquote cannon for an arm. Put Tony though, isn't that kind of tough? Like, Hey, I know you haven't played in five weeks. I need you to go out there and throw in 80 yard strike. Go. It's like you know that stuff. But, yeah, Tufts, for better to come in and say Hey, better come in and throw 1 60 yards for us. And then can you get back on the sideline, please? But I will say my uke looks damn good. I mean, imagine I You look with a healthy Deebo and you get Jalen Hurd back next year and healthy, running game and healthy, old line and both. So comes back. And maybe Armstead has a better season. Because Boz is back and D Ford comes back. I mean, like there So many things that are just not going the Niners way this year that you can't pile on Garoppolo. Let's grapple owes fault, Tony. He's gotta go. Yeah. God, Joe. I enjoyed watching Kinloch kind of make a turn. I think he's gonna come around. I mean, everybody has been saying that he's you know, a few games away. Maybe he's arrived. I gotta go to Taysom Hill on third down and short, third down and four Camaro goes in motion. There's a drop back and he'll gonna throw the ball steps up gets in a flag is down, and he set That kind of 33 yard line. Javon Kid Law got in there. It comes.
"matt ryan" Discussed on Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM
"You live in Baltimore. Are you a Ravens fan? Eagles. Your urine? I don't know. I don't. I don't know. How would I know? What would it? How would I know that at the end of the day you can look at the Eagles. And I would venture to say if you go back and look at their recent history and who they've had at quarterback, you know would be ah, whole lot more solid of a situation if you could say Okay, Well, Matt, right hand over the stretch. Nick Foles may have going on a stretch and won you a Super Bowl. Matt Ryan has been more reliable and all of those guys, Ryan, I appreciate you for calling up from Baltimore. We got another caller from Baltimore Mike you on CBS Sports Radio J R. You do a terrific job has been listening to you for quite a while. I don't think Matt Ryan is underappreciated. I'll tell you why. This happens in sports a lot where just because we think the guy isn't the Hall of Famer. Sometimes people just dismissed the career. Matt Ryan's had a fantastic career. A high water marks very good conference championship games a couple of times took his team to a Super Bowl. I just don't think he wears a gold jacket to go to Canton. The last three or four years, his team has gotten off to just awful start. None of that has to fall on the quarterback. I mean, I'm not going to lie and tell you I watched every Falcon game. And if you look historically I look up a guy like Ken Anderson. It played many years ago. Do you remember the name? I'm very Mike, I I wasn't born yesterday, people he played in the seventies and his biggest problem. The biggest problem in his career was that he had the unfortunate path of Playing in the same division of the Steelers, one of the all time great teams. Ken Anderson was a terrific quarterback had a great career, not a hall of fame, er, but might the conversation that I'm having right now isn't whether or not Matt Ryan is a hole of Famer. That's that's not the conversation. Conversation and the question that I asked, Is Matt Ryan under appreciated. That's us too, that my enter to that very simply, no. I think most Most football fans who studied the game. Will realize he had a terrific career. But where's the under appreciation? Well, might well, you said this and I'll let you know as someone who is here in Atlanta. I can tell you that there are Falcon fans who have said Hey, it's time for this guy to go. It's time for this guy to go. You may not hear it in Baltimore, but I could tell you in the home city. That's what's being, said Mike. I appreciate you for calling up from Baltimore. Let's talkto Anthony Anthony's calling up from Louisiana. Anthony, You want CBS Sports radio? Maybe our thanks for taking my call, and I do. I love this show, man. I do agree. I feel like Matt Ryan's definitely on appreciate. I mean, not appreciate it in the fact that I think sports fans a lot of times, people get caught up in being Creatures of the moment, but also creatures of the worst moment when you become a quarterback. So many people trying to pin the Super Bowl loss on him. And it's like they're making him carry that. Just something to define his career. And what about the lead? What would that what would happen? It was no leads, so he didn't have anything to do with that. I mean, it's been a matter of coaching. That's what the situation is. It's the team. He's the stalwart. That team would have been in the toilet. It would be swimming around in raw sewage. If that man was not at least there. T keep the ship some type of alive Even through all the losses we'd be in brown paper bag territory. If that man was not there. Exactly and just I look at it from the standpoint of If you tell me who else would you put there if it wasn't that, right? I mean, we think having Jacksonville would love to have, you know, I mean, they love tohave. I mean, they're points. 16 20 teams in this league right now that would love to have Quarterback as reliable as he is, so I looked at his whole body of work and say, Hey, who else would I put there before I say This man is washed up, but he needs to go. I mean, I mean, I'm the same thing and drew retire tomorrow. If I could just swap him just getting mad over here. I'd make the jersey must correct And thank you. Anthony for calling up from Louisiana agree with everything, And then he just said That's the fax it's It's not about just Oh, hello, Matt Ryan. He's not the greatest. So it's not bad when you look at the scope If you look at the N F l wanna scale And you look at where Matt Ryan fits in. He's better than the majority of these bum ass quarterback's here. In at the back end. He's not at the front of the line. He's had an amazing career. Yes, but there's ah section of folks who just kind of go well, he's he's whatever He lost the Super Bowl. Come on. Didn't What? Well, what would happen eating get you that he didn't get the lead. He had nothing to do with it. He didn't get you in the playoffs. This conversation wouldn't even be had If the man had a title. 855 to 1 to four CBS That's 855 to 12 for CBS more your calls, and we come back. It's the Jr Sport re show on CBS Sports Radio. Are you over 50?.

So we just watched the saints and the packers on Sunday night football and the saints lost without. Their Star Receiver Michael Thomas. But that did not stop us from getting a whole bunch of touchdowns drew brees and Aaron Rodgers. Each threw for three a piece. But in the end, the packers won the saints lost and they've now lost New Orleans says back to back games for the first time since two thousand, seventeen bill I know you are writing a new piece about drew brees coming off of the two year deal that drew brees signed in the offseason and what we've now seen from him through these first three weeks what did you see in Sunday night's games he regressing improving? What do we have with bruise right now? Okay. So public drew brees definitely improving this is a better performance from him. Me brees was downright bad on Monday night in week two against the raiders before we got to garbage time and breeze didn't do deep very frequently until this game was out of hand but I think the concerns i. have read or have heard about arm strength or how deep is passes typically go they don't really get how reason this offense actually worked. Breezes sort of like. A singles hitter in baseball like Tony Gwynn lagging time where a post player with no range in basketball he's not going to suddenly start throwing deeply. He's Patrick Mahomes at forty one years old breeze has succeeded. Over the last three years while throwing the shortest paths in the League because he's posted the three best single season completion. In NFL history. Now. The good news for the Saints Good News For Saints Fans is that brees was much more accurate on Sunday night it was twenty, nine, thirty, six for two, hundred, eighty, eight yards a lot of that West Alvin Kamara who did a lot of the work but still going to end up thirty six is still better than where brees was. The bad news was just about everything else. The Saints Lost Starters Jared Cook and Andres P to injuries while devante. Adams List Aaron Rodgers threw for two hundred, eighty, three yards and those three touchdowns you mentioned. The saints focused on adding veterans with nicknames Emmanuel Sanders and balcony. Jenkins this off season. But. Sanders hasn't been able to stand out with ankle Thomas Injured and Jenkins has been picked apart in pass coverage including Mercedes Lewis touchdown on Sunday night the attorney for more accurate breeze that was a bright spot. But if the saints continue to struggle with injuries and get disappointing play from their stars, the Orleans is going to need this version of free stick around to have a chance to compete in the NFC. So the packers emerged three no, and that's where a lot of focus the rest of our conversation here on the teams that are now undefeated through three weeks of the NFL season. So bill, let's push deeper into the NFC here because the Chicago Bears Be Chicago bears are somehow three you know and they do it by beating the Falcons thirty to twenty six Chicago was trailing by sixteen head coach. Matt Nagy Decides to pull quarterback Mitch Trubisky in favor of the veteran nick foles mister big bleep nick himself who goes on to throw three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter. So I have a two part question for you now. Why are the Falcons physically incapable of holding onto a fourth quarter lead and? Secondly, where does this leave the whole quarterback situation in Chicago? Let me answer the second part of that question I. The bears are going to flail by the seat of their pants for the rest of the season I would assume that nick foles is going to start until he struggles and the bears trailing by two touchdowns in the fourth quarter a couple weeks from now, I would point Mitch Trubisky will come in and lead them to victory and the cycle will start the new. Unfortunately I don't have one simple takeaway for our poor friends and Atlantic. Is Different From what we saw in week to as. Much. As the defense was disappointing in this game, the offense really deserves a fair chunk of the blame for what happened scored a touchdown on the opening drive third quarter, and then basically tried to sit on their lead, Matt Ryan and company REPA- total three first downs on their next six is before the bears took the lead back and the only scored one field goal over that time after bisky intercession back running back Brian L. dropped an easy third down conversion which would have put the Falcons and field goal range. Then on the next drive kicker, young coup miss a forty eight yard field goal attempt. I know. I mean let's be fair. The Falcons defense was very bad. I'm not sure the Falcons are gonNA make any drastic changes on Monday morning, but Arthur blank can feel great about seeing this happen. On his seventy eighth birthday and. I believe I'm not mistaken not the only person celebrating birthday on Sunday. Having Birthday Pamela. Day Pablo. Yeah this is a hard way to discover that you share a birthday with the owner of the Atlanta Falcons Bill, which feels like you just cast a pox upon my house.
NFL WEEK 3: Our official predictions for who wins this weekend
"So. I gave talk about. Obviously a game that still sits our my mind from last week. The Atlanta Falcons go our land Alcan's play. The Chicago bears this week. Chicago was to know the Falcons are all into one o'clock on Fox. Obviously, the Falcons. About that the shambles, the the. Disgusting performance that we saw last week losing a game that they should've never lost Dallas cowboys now going to Chicago bears team defensively is still one of the better teams in the NFL. Immature bisky while not playing. Ultra, great. Still playing well enough for them to win. If, you look at this game, you would think the Falcons will win because one of the Falcons do have going for them as they do have one of the better offenses in felt even to the two weeks you've seen that. And they're going to a bears team that. Can Be, offered to challenge America can be limited. So the Falcons you put up points. The game should be over now the falcons defense does have some questions, but I do think they would put voices should be enough to create distance in the bears it'd be able to pick up the whip. Obviously the bears are companies just gave a lot of confidence. As they should. To An older, start the season I mean. I saw some Falcon fans tweet about it. They don't necessarily want the T. Blues remember they're only to the of this dot over by any stretch. But people really what? Dad Queen Gone. And so. It's Cadillac Party. Wants. To lose. The ship but the Chicago bears going to three eight. Oh probably be one of the young shockers of this early season. I'm going to very hastily picked the Falcons to win this game. I think they they are the better team. Now whether they actually leads to the results on Sunday we'll see but I'm going to go the Falcons to win this game as they are the better team to me. I, Think Matt Ryan will continue his great start to the season. I think are often will continue to click. There are questions of Julio. Jones will play this Sunday I. Think he will. He usually plays to injuries when his Julio not move something now he did. Have a setback in practice but. You know I think. He should be able to go. and honestly, if he didn't would be great for my fantasy team either but I got kindergarten if I need to step up or racial gauge. So yeah. But yeah with the Falcons. Next game forty niners, giants, I've this Games interesting. Remember last week. The point is playing metlife stadium loss Garoppolo MOATS are. Bosa, Thomas they lost a lot of guys last week. And the. Giants team who? Looks like they'll probably be at the bottom of the barrel the NFC east. Especially after losing saquon Barkley. For? The. season. When I players were scared to play at metlife stadium because they felt like the the stadium turf in and everything was the reason for a lot of those injuries that they had last week when they played the jets. Now. I it's. It's interesting to see what it's GONNA be 'cause they're playing a backup quarterback backup running backs they got sued offensive Lineman. I still don't have Richard Sherman. You have a lot of injuries. and. So this may be a winnable game for the giants I mean, you don't really know what to expect from the forty niners this week. So it'd be you say here they of Jimmy, Garoppolo at least played to me I. Think you would be like, okay for eight hours I think we'd still be able to win, but we don't know how good the Ford back for Norwich backup QB may play. I mean, luckily, the void ours have a lot of defensive talent still. So it's not like older pleaded they have nobody but. It. Isn't as comfortable as A. But I would still in my right mind, go with the four years to win the game.
New York Giants Confirm Saquon Barkley Tore ACL, Out For The Season
"There are terrible injuries all over the NFL yesterday alone. Nick. Bosa. From the niners Saquon Barkley from the giants both suffered torn ACL statistics show that through two weeks nfl record twice as many significant injuries as last year. It's actually at least six players suffered a torn acl including just recently Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin Eleven, injuries to starters in the one o'clock games alone John Do you think these injuries have something to do with the fact that there were no preseason games. Well. For example, the Rams don't play any of their starters in preseason games I think is in the spirit of your question i. think it has something to do with no camp no real camp they kind of shotgun training camp and I don't know how you could make the opposite argument that it has nothing to do with it. I wouldn't tied to preseason games what I would do it to the fact that there was very little tackling. Yes in. The game started and the other thing is I know Kyle Shanahan the niners felt like the field wasn't ready like the field I think he played in the meadowlands and he's got play there again next week because he played the jets and now he's GonNa, play the giants. Players on both teams going down. So I don't necessarily think that the facilities were one hundred percent prepared either I think again, I think the spirit of your question is the fact that they fast tracked everything and started the season. Because of Covid is that having any do with the injuries I don't know how you could say it doesn't I think it has to yeah. I mean I I completely agree I mean between training camp and preseason games where guys at least get a sense for what they get a reminder of what getting hit is like. I think they're I think they would be better off. It is an extraordinary number of injuries and none worse than Christian McCaffrey who's gone for four to six weeks and his the stalwart of my fantasy team just loyal to John Ireland how about? Yeah. I cleaned your clock thinking Matt Ryan. But. How about how about Saquon out for the year? Yeah. Entirely out for the year Bosa gone for the with a tornado. And that means that the giants I. It might be a race between the giants and the jets who the worst team football is. The whole new. York City area has to just garbage football teams because the jets are a mess and now the giants have no running game. So it's going to have it's going to have after-effects. All these
"matt ryan" Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"That's not to say they don't discount or you know what what the browns have been able to do but you know they're never going to say this but I think they probably subscribed to theory that look it till you show me you can do it. I'm I'm not gonNA sit here and and and hand you anything whereas Baltimore has shown that you know their offense has changed the way they play the game has exchanged and and certainly with the Lamar Jackson and the weapons that they've given him with Marquees Brown I think there are more dangerous team team offensively they had been so but I don't think there's any question they still look at the the Ravens as the team to beat in the division. Gerry Jerry have fun today plain ice. We appreciate your time. Thank you Dan. Thanks it was Nice Day with Jerry Dulack he covers the steelers. Pittsburgh Post Gazette Adam Schefter to reporting Daniel Jones has been named the starting quarterback for the New York giants home the road where the fans are on your side but the fans won't be there in Tampa and and Tampa's got a good defense mclovin. You look puzzled what happens he line now any chance that they will no. I don't know everybody's got to worry. Nobody lie and how's it going to take this any chance. I mean there's a lot of quarterback vacancies that maybe they deal him. I guess you'd have to learn new offense so that's GonNa be hard. Okay ah how much of an upgrade is Jacksonville coughlan. I got nick foles. fulls probably will be back at the end of the season season like. I don't WanNa Bring Eli into a situation where he might keep the job New Orleans. He won't keep the job no but that's only for six weeks. I I oh this teddy bridgewater New Orleans because he could have left for the Miami job he stayed. I owe this to him because if you thought that much of him then let him play. Yup Yeah in theory I'd like to say that the saints make sense but it would make sense up freeze were out for the year noon if resort definitely done for the season which is not six weeks then you put in there and just give a six round pick for them and let it play out and I thought that the giants would go to Daniel Jones next week or the following week when they have Washington at at home but on the road against Tampa Bay and Pat Shurmur opened the door because he you know he didn't commit to ally yesterday and I said well. They're going to ask you every single week. WHO's your starting quarterback. Don't have to ask that now unless Daniel. Jones doesn't play well this next week then you might ask us. He's still your quarterback the following annoyingly Yarmuk and he's got no receivers so it's possible he's not going to be able to do any better. I that's Jones. I WANNA play but I'd like to play play when we have a little more talent out there because look at these other quarterbacks. Sam Darnold has some talent around him they brought in Leon Bell Baker. Mayfield okay feel certainly as talent around him with Oh. BJ Landry got a good running back. Good tight end you got Shawn. Watson has good wide receivers a great wide receiver Patrick. Mahomes has all of that talent there. You know the guys who struggle or the guys who don't have you know Jameis. Winston does have talent around him but you know James Winston to me. Is the problem not the talent around him. Marcus Mariota doesn't have a lot of talent around him. You gotTa have have talent at that position. If you're going to succeed Jared Goff you didn't have a talented offensive minded coach and Jeff Fisher then you got that you got some weapons. They fell in and you know they. They lucked out with Cooper Cup. You brought in some free agents. You GotTa have weapons if you're going to succeed. I don't expect much out of Daniel Jones against Tampa Bay not not much at all and if I'm a giants fan I wouldn't expect if you get something then great but I wouldn't expect much out of gambling. If you go back to the preseason all these these articles about aligned Daniel Jones always say oh the bye week week eight week nine we then right around there when they're not eligible. Nobody had him starting in September. Nope not not calling for it nor predicting it now. I didn't think that I was hoping they wouldn't go to because he doesn't have any. He's got saquon Barkley. That's a wonderful talent to have around. Did you is the offensive line good and who are your wide receivers. Yes mclovin and by the way your defense tear yes so you're probably not gonNA win a lot of games anyway although that game at Washington in New York next week. That's a good lineup. The redskins defense has been struggling. Maybe the giants trade for Jalen Ramsey Janoris Norris Jenkins who's kind of seem to one out of town but you know what the reason why the giants wouldn't do that because they traded away personnel quote unquote personalities. They're not going to bring in Jalen. Transi not not a chance all right coming up on one thousand nine after the Hour Matt Ryan set to join us. I believe is that right on that is absolutely and did you guys check. The point spreads. Miami is Miami's a little bit. Maybe a point more of an underdog in Dallas than the jets are in New England grand. New England is considered better than Dallas but Miami's tanking the jets tanking who is a named Luke Falk. He's the starting quarterback right my Guy Luke Falk quarterback you Washington State Gardner Minhsiu. I love it. I Matt Ryan will join US coming up next here on the Dan Patrick. Show okay. This is just a thirty second commercial and I'M GONNA. Throw a lot of numbers that.

"Mercedes dominate at this is Dan Patrick. Wow we're knee deep in a heated conversation about just how good the Sitcom fringes or not good Sitcom is i. I just saw where. HBO is spending a Billion Dollars for the Big Bang theory. Is that right Matthew report seeing the Hollywood reporter Big Bang Theory said staggering multibillion dollar. HBO Streaming Deal. I Love Jim Parsons. I do well. He's one of the nicest people I've ever met. I've never sat through an episode of Big Bang Theory Dude. You can't say that allowed I can. I can't and yes he. You're not alone okay I. I Love Jim. Parsons not not totally not enough to watch twenty two minutes. It's of his work not enough to support him. Apparently I know and I feel bad about that. Every time he'd come on in the back of my mind I'm saying I don't watch Big Bang theory. He's I watched our show before. He got to know us not have an obligation. Yes yes see when we first started having him on and I I love Jim too. I think he's one of the nicest guys ever but everybody kept saying like you would get like tweets and all this stuff about Zinger and I was like I don't know I knew what that meant and he was so nice when they did their one hundred episode. He sent me the script with everybody's autographs on it. Yeah Paulie. I think our relationship Parsons officially over well. No I think he he understands that. I liked him like full Pestano. I loved you. Oh I still do and he's very talented but at at the time we wouldn't have booked Jim Parsons from the Big Bang theory right we just wouldn't he was on Leno. He went on Jay Leno and said that he wanted to be a de. Dan for a day and of course the audience had no idea what he was talking about and neither did Jay but we heard about it and I said fritzy reach out to Jim Parsons and he does cousin all of a sudden Jim joins. US came in studio a couple of times. We went out to dinner. I mean Yeah I. I'm not only did he. It mentioned that he wants to be identified. The days then he went on to mention each one of us knew by name on the tonight show with Jay Leno which is insane every time that he would get ready to film Big Bang Theory reheat watch the show in the morning and he said I just I wanted to be part of a group like that. Yes mclovin so chuck. Lori is a creator of Big Bang theory. He did two and a half men Darmon Greg. How much that is the business we also have gone into. He's gotTa be worth five hundred billion. I mean millions and millions and millions of dollars not as worth. It's not worth as much as David Kelly Dick Wolf. He's allowed orders on yes and you know what I've never watched an episode of law and order and there's a different law and order Memphis. There's all the offshoots I I haven't watched CSI. You've never watched law and order. No it's pretty good especially early early ones Svu Zelin. It is yeah yeah. I know I never watch any of those shows. I like her now. Who is her mom then. You have a famous mom right. Do you Yahoo is a legendary actress sometime like two police. Hey Mansfield Woo Mayo dear. Oh yeah that's serious member wasn't she in the famous photograph where is it. Sophia Loren is looking at her cleavage is Humphrey Bogart well. No He's not looking at it. It's another woman looking being at her. XFL Iran and Jayne Mansfield and she's eyeballing her oh yeah because there's another one of Humphrey Bogart and he's sitting between two women and Marilyn Monroe think he's looking down Marilyn Monroe's dress and he's got like a cigarette in his hand and he's like oh my gosh and then the girl next to him is looking at him. Like what what are you doing. Loops got me. How did we get here. Oh that's right. Friends is friends over rated know how Oh overrated as friends when I watched the off their certain shows you know. Seinfeld was just sold for five hundred million dollars. I think the net flicks I can tell you. Episodes and people will quote Seinfeld. I don't know if people talk about you. GotTa see that fringe episode like what like when Ross and Rachel Rachel broke up and got back together okay if you say the office I can give you fifteen episodes right away. Friends isn't funny. It's Fun if Light Fund with its like hanging out with a bunch of people that are Kinda good looking and kind of witty without actually leaving the house. That's what friends it's not. It's not funny. It's they're having fun though yeah so like I think Big Bang theory got that billion dollars because of this resurgence and friends right friends is having this unbelievable comeback where there's a whole generation of people that are for some reason choosing to spend their free time binge watching that show which baffles me but that clearly really has had an effect on syndication a couple of my daughters they watch friends and then I go what do you what do you see in. It and I don't know I guess they Jennifer Aniston Courtney Cox and everybody looks great but I don't I don't get it. There's not one episode where I go all my guy that one that one that add kills me like I don't but I think at the time and I talked to somebody who was part of the negotiations with friends when they were going their into their last year on TV and I think they got forty nine million dollars each but that's nothing Jim. Parsons got one hundred million. I think for the last last year of Big Bang when they were up for their first renewal contractors the story David Schwimmer one of the actors played Ross Course. I know he he got all together and I said we all stick together. We all ask for the exact same amount. Even though some are more popular than others some are more necessary than others they could always right so some one person off script and they stuck with that forever. Yes yeah that's the story I was. GonNa say that same thing and Ross as the most benefit from that that shot that he's the he's like Hey Jan.. How about this idea on you. He was a serious actor. He's Chicago Steppenwolf Theatre. He worked with various Jason than that. Of course he should be. Let's rank the friends I think as actors you tubby Ross's ahead of Joey and in net value Joey if you had to lose one like after season one. Let's say one of the six we're going to leave after season one and you're the producer of the show. I could have lost Ross Ross and Rachel. Oh yeah that defined a generation never bought that Lynch end of season one two and three. I don't think yeah I don't think so. I think we all Auger. You could have cut phoebe out of this to beat no smelly cat. She's the best actress in the group. She's had a good career. Is Aniston's Edison's a star. She's a Rockstar Lisa Krueger. Do you ever see her show. Yeah she's really good. He's also a neighbor. She was crushed it. Eh Having Aniston was part of a project that I was in your bias though yes I am I saw person right. You're beautiful and you're funny funny. You should have gotten into sitcoms instead of movies Dan. That's where you're acting career off property at my acting career. I'll write a couple of headlines here. The brand brown show those jets what they're made of. They roughed him up. There and Odell Beckham got a touchdown a war two million dollar watching warm ups. I don't know why Baker Mayfield was in there with two minutes to go. myles Garrett to beast the jets are really really really bad. Can you remember the last time you had two teams and now you've got one team. Tanking Miami's tanking and they play Dallas. I think they're twenty one and a half point underdogs the jets who aren't tanking or twenty and a half point underdogs against the Patriots. How sad is that for the jets. Now we know Miami's doing their best to tank. They have traded Minka Fitch Patrick to the steelers. I think says a whole lot about Mason Rudolph because I don't think you make that deal now. Maybe they were are in discussions with the dolphins about making fitzpatrick and then bend decided to have season ending surgery but I think this says a lot about Mason Rudolph in what they think think of his value going forward. Jalen Ramsey wants out ally. The door is open for second guessing. Should he be in there. Is he going to be in in there this weekend against Tampa and from here on out if I'm covering the giants I'm asking every single Monday with Pat Shurmur. Who's your quarterback for this next week because because he opened the door all right speaking of the steelers. Jerry Dulack covers the steelers for the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. He joins US now Jerry. Let let me start with the MINKA fitzpatrick trade. Was this in the works with Ben. Still being in the lineup. Well Dan good morning. I will say this. Yes the steelers had been in search of a number three sixty because they didn't feel they had any depth at the position but then when he became available. I think what you're looking at here. Is there regular starters Sean. Davis is a free agent at the end of the year. They weren't going to to resign him. He also has a shoulder injury but I think looking at the big picture they felt they could get a player of Minka Fitzpatrick's caliber that they wouldn't get a shot at you know in the draft and what's surprised me though Dan about the deal was that is that just goes against against everything. Dan Rooney always believed in which is you never traded away a future number one that was the most surprising aspect then deal to me but why they made it beyond that the warming well. I don't know if you agree with me but I thought that they must think a lot more of Mason Jason Rudolph than most people do and maybe they feel like they got a first round talented quarterback. They're not going to take a step back. They're gonNa you know bring in Fitzpatrick metric and they're still going to compete for this division. We do agree with that and you see that that because you have to you have to feel like Rudolph can play or why. Are you making that a trade right now. Well I think the flip side. I I will agree with you in this regard. I do believe they feel that Mason. Rudolph is going to surprise. Some people both you know I'm not GonNa sit here and predict eleven and five but I think they feel they could be or should be okay with Mason Rudolph it off the flip side of that could be that because of Ben's injury they feel they need to upgrade their defense because they're going to need their defense and a running game ain't carry them through this period and and neither of which have been very solid you know here in the first couple of games so it could the case too but I will say they like Mason Rudolph and he's really progressed a lot from year to year. What is Ben's future with this team. Well you know he'll be thirty when he comes back from the injury. we shall see you know. I was told yesterday that that the you know the organization does not believe that the injuries career-threatening knowing Ben with a challenge anytime he has challenged on everything he responds spawning takes it personally and I and I believe you know I I you know history has shown me not to doubt him and so so I think that you know I think he'll come back. He's really worth the last three or four years with his nutritionist. Diet with working out. He's in the best shape be has been for the last couple. Three four years of his of his professional career is arm is as strong as ever now. After the surgery we shall see but the other guys have had this surgery and come back from it and well. We'll see how it plays out but I I believe you'll come back. He said he wants to play out his contract which takes them through twenty twenty one and and I believe talking to Jerry Dolan he covers the steelers for the Pittsburgh Post. Gazette just got word. The giants have named Daniel Annual Jones as their starting quarterback giants will be on the road in Tampa. Who Do you think the steelers look at as the team to beat in their division with the Ravens and the browns well. I really think they look at it. As you know it's proven winners and that would be the Baltimore Ravens and certainly what we've seen. In the first I two weeks you know would indicate that need strengthened their opinion so I think they always look at it that way..

Third overall pick of the two thousand eight draft joining us from the Atlanta Falcons, courtesy of our friends at Gatorade beat the heat program. He is Matt Ryan. How are you, Matt? I'm doing great rich. How're you doing? I am great. How's life has life is very good. I cannot complain. What is what is the mid would has? Mid june. When you're not doing stuff with Gatorade, look look like for you. Matt ryan. You know, it's, it's a little bit of family time, some working out and training. And then, you know, sprinkle a little golf little golfing there to get the get the fixed in before before training camp starts Jimmy your game. What, what's your handicap? Would you handicap playoff a one currently? But it's it's not it wasn't pretty you know it's not pretty right now. You are not willing, any money at us as a as a one. Matt Ryan it is you're not allowed as a human being to say I play off a one but it's not pretty right now. That is that is. I just can't allow it. I won't allow it. I wouldn't want me as a partner, it's not necessarily on. But maybe, you know, I, I would bring it least eighteen pieces of candy to that partnership. Then you might be my partner, you know, I could I could do that. A what's the best round you've ever you've ever, had what your lowest score, which I've never been in the sixties to be honest with you. I the best I've ever shot, seventy. And I've done that a handful of times, but I, I gotta get over that hump and go low one time. So what who's the best player you've ever played with from the NFL, who's the guy that you would want to partner up with because he's got a great staff. Tony Romo is back when I was young playing plate a little bit of the, the event out linked Tahoe and to watch him play. He's got some serious game. He he can play. And that would be the one guy that that I would take his game that I have I've been around and have played with is there any comparison to the concentration level to play golf with, with the NFL with pre snap reads pre snap this, and then figure out in real time, obviously, you're not going to get physically hit playing golf. But I'm just wondering if there's any comparison in terms of the concentration. Level required to play. I think there is, you know, I think the emotional hits our price for. It really it can damage your ego, for sure. You think you're playing well, and then all of a sudden WAM, but I think you know making decisions and then, you know trusting the decisions that's make and trying to let it rip. I think that's probably the biggest carry over between the two you've got to trust. You know what you see? And I feel like in football. I'm playing my best when, when I'm trusting my, my instincts and probably the same can be said in golf when you kind of just see what you wanna do. And you let it go. That's usually when I play the best. Let's talk a little football right here. Let's talk a little ball, the competition committee, just an hour ago of the unanimously passed the rules to make it all the fact it's happening instant replay is going to be able to be used for offensive and defensive pass interference.

Give us a little flavor of what things are like in your backyard there in Atlanta. Wh what's everything been like so far this week leading up to Sunday's game? It's been good. You know, it's been a good start to the week. I think as the weekend picks up. I think it's going to get busy here in Atlanta. But it's an amazing host city. They do this all the time. They're prepared for it. And it's been a lot of fun. So far, Manny is even after year number Levin. And I sat down with you. Because I did one of your games you working on several things to try to improve a lot of people out there in the football world don't realize that this was one of the best seasons that you've ever had. If after looking at all that film and studying yourself gimme a couple of things that you're looking for this off season to try to put into your game. As you get ready for two thousand nineteen football. I think probably one of the biggest things for us. And for myself personally is trying to find ways to use our tight end more effectively. I think this year Austin Hooper started to have a little bit of a breakout year. And then, you know, I think he's such a good fit for for us with the ride receivers that we have he's a matchup problem for people. And so, you know, I'm really gonna work hard this off season to to get a good report with him. And to find creative ways to use him. You've got a target those guys differently. You've got to throw to tight ends differently than you would wide receiver. So that's going to be a big point of emphasis for me. Pardon me. Matt this year is C mentioned you had you put up nearly identical numbers to your in BP season. Obviously didn't maybe get the recognition because the team wasn't as outstanding as it was a few years ago when you didn't win the MVP. But I'm curious when you see drew Brees nearing year. Forty Tom Brady in his early forties. Still playing at this high of. Level. Have you started to reevaluate how long you intend to play? And how long you think you can maintain your play at this elite level? I think those guys certainly give you motivation as a as a younger guy to you know, to to believe that there's a lot more football in front of you and they're playing at high level into their forties. You know, I think if I can stay injury free. You know, I certainly intend to play as long as I can. And as long as I'm playing at a high level..
