"My absolutely. You think he's upset about that like you think he's talking to the team like what the heck is. Now you have. Twenty extra million dollars your back pocket. When you throw some of that, my way I wouldn't be surprised if they said look get out there. You know. Be Healthy enough to play starting into starting job win the starting job be healthy enough by the way we want we'll make guaranteed we'll. We'll hook you up we're not going to and cams really really rich he doesn't care I also isn't there a rule that you cannot redo a contract until it's gone for a year Old situation with Tom Brady her a couple of years ago. That might be the case preached question. We should look that we should know that and are looking up by the way guys. Bridge especially, who is just dunking all over Dante dimes and the giants on Thursdays CBS sports HQ Danny Canal was asked about Danny dimes. Futures clearly bright and P Briscoe said the kid. Says that the kid has what it takes to be a long term successful in of a quarterback, take that breach. Just say you are replacing two tackles. Your have to new starting tackles to start the season with a quarterback who fumbles the first three defenses you're facing are the steelers the In. The forty niners. Giants I three, you think. Daniel Jones could do anything in those three games media one touchdown passing six interceptions. BRISCOE got dunked on in absentia. Took it? Aaron Donald Donald and week four. So it's not like the giants have very easy opening scheduler that clip tweet out at Pete. PRISCO CBS since watch him just like What else the other takeaways from the opt out stuff? I would say that I thought that it might be. More. Bigger. Names I thought we might get hit with some bigger names no quarterbacks. There was some conversation that might be a quarterback. There was buzz that Nick foles and then there's some. Matthew. Stafford said Kelly Stafford Matthew Coverage, wife post on facebook that she had been harassed to get off. Old playground had been gotten dirty looks. To. Get off the playground because. Stafford was put on the. Covert. List. Being put on the covert list does not mean you have corona virus over that you testifies for Covid nineteen it means that you. have been exposed or their. Saito clarify it. Could be a false positive. You could. You could have been near somebody who you know exposed and say your nanny came over and then her boyfriend tested positive or whatever it is. There's a bunch of reasons to put you on there and Kelly Stafford said when it was announced that Matthew Stafford was on their, she would take your kids to the playground of people are like, what are you doing here? How can you here and then would she got dirty looks at a grocery store and said she got a little bit harass social media I mean that's a hey people first of all be better. Second of all, you know maybe maybe she's right and at the NFL needs to potentially do something about how they handle that because. You're you're attaching a statement of somebody by putting him on the list even though right now I think we should have realized that it's not like it's not a big. Deal. Obviously, it is a big deal but like if somebody has covid nineteen. You. Being. A. In their vicinity like you. You have probably crossed paths with somebody who has covid nineteen and you also have. At the playground with their kids. They don't actually. You know who these people are. Matthew Stafford comes out with a pause or is on the Kobe list and. Like you know who he is the community. So you know who is who is wife as you see him out there and people recognize you and they say go home I think the Matthew Stafford thing actually flew under the radar a little bit because this could totally turn into chaos for the NFL because think if that would happen the Friday before week one, Matthew Stafford can't plan the opener against the bears then Monday they're like, oh? Yeah. This was a false positive you should have been able to play, but you didn't so. That happened in. Baseball. Want Soda Stalling. For the for the nationals, you probably their maybe their best player the best of the best batter. got a false positive and he had missed multiple games in a sixty game season like if Matthew Stafford was knockout for two games because of a false positive, the lions could miss the playoffs older or only win one game have three. So. I. Just realized the steelers didn't have any one opt out which is interesting and the packers had wide receiver opt out and Devin funchess so. Dry. Receiver. Only one as an undrafted free agent those two things that need to go get Antonio. Brown. O. Maybe I am no list of teams and I noticed that the steelers didn't, and then of all the players opt out for the packers Zambia Wide Receiver. I would say, what are the interesting names on the list is the broncos which want James He's starting tackle. That's a big one. That's one of those names that people might not recognize who you're talking about a quarterback is going to his first full years of starter. He's losing his starting tackle. They absolutely thought they would have on the Rosser when they're going through free agency in the draft. Don't really have a great. They don't have really anyone in line to that. You would just put into that position right away. So I think that's a huge loss for the broncos and it's almost an offer you to say, I, think, a lot of people thought, hey, maybe Denver's Darkhorse team to get to the postseason and that's enough for me to maybe take a step back and say. I mean, that's just a huge loss for Denver. Right online with thinking and you can go check this out by the way on the on the podcast earlier this week jared Ubin we he made the case for four teams who could make a leap into the playoffs and then ran through some of the other sleepers we had, and I asked him about the AFC west and he listed charges, broncos raiders in that order. And his point with broncos was, hey, look like people are all in on this broncos offense and things attorney trinity sleeper and it can make. Forward, but we don't know a whole lot about drew lock. They're going to be missing one of their tackles. That's a big deal gear balls the other when he hadn't been very good so far this career and all of their. Skill position guys as talented as you know, Jerry Judy and here's your boyfriend Penn State. devaux. Caja. Handler. Sutton Noah fant the loaded group, but they're all. Young I mean you know Thirty year. Yeah that's right. Fence second year Judy and Ham or rookies. That's you're asking a lot for that offense to come together under a defensive minded head coach by the way in a weird off season with no no right tackle and that's the problem. I two hundred is left is right right airballs..

You know, trying to think back. How did I get sick and trying to back trace back to how he got the You know where he would have thought He got the infection, etcetera, etcetera. And then turn right. And then it turns into having to kind of go and branch that out. Like, okay, Who do we see Who did? Who else was I in contact with and then eventually come to turn out that? Oh, well. Well, since you you tested negative, you know, essentially right away. Then it must been a false positive. And of course, you know it's I know that sports you know that. You know, media everyone has got their pains on media and whatnots. And what have you, But I mean, this was definitely a This is a big black guy.

"With a purpose. And so far, they've They've been healthy and that's and Derek Valerie said. Hey, look, you know we were doing everything they are focused, but that doesn't mean that That a you know, we might get infected with covert way Don't know like that's the thing about this is so mysterious. So if you if you miss that it's a good conversation. Hit the rewind button on radio dot com. But it got me thinking to us is football's ramping up here. Of the Vikings Every single day they sent out notes. Just got one right now. I don't know. It's like, okay, this guy's got Cove it. He's on the covert list now, so he's quarantined. And, um oh, this guy's been activated off the quarantine list. Like today, it's Arman Watts. Who you're like. I don't know that name Ria What weighs a rookie last year defensive tackle going to be a a bigger, bigger opportunity for him. Now that Michael Pierce opted out because of Govan, he's at high risks of the Vikings biggest Literally offseason signing, opting out, didn't want to play the game this year because he's got asthma. And there are some other underlying conditions in this family is like it's just not safe for me to play Mike Zimmer, of course. And hey, we respect that. We understand that. Arman Watts now taken off the list, but It's going to be messy season. If there's a season, which I still the NFL may be may be able to pull it off. But it's going to look like you know, unlike anything we've ever seen. College football high school football. Obviously not in this fall here in the state of Minnesota, but college football. I still I don't know how they're going to do it. In a lot of money on the line, But how, like all these kids aren't even at school in the classroom, And yet we're goingto make them play for free. Not sure, But as I look at the NFL will be a messy season if there is a season. Look at what happened with Lions quarterback Matt Stafford. Matthew Stafford. Had a false positive test. Now it happened early enough didn't impact any games. But think about this season when you have Oh, you know, he's tested positive for covert. Now you're missing two weeks at least. And that's if everything goes just fine. If you You know you test positive and you don't have any symptoms and any lingering symptoms and you don't die. Then you know you can come back and play in two weeks. Great. What if it's a false positive? Well, then you could miss a game like Matthew Stafford in the middle of the season. He gets that test while he would've missed a game. But even bigger Even bigger. What happened with him personally? So like here's what happened. Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was tested by the NFL tested positive but in the cove in 19 list now he never had any symptoms. He had more tests in the following days. And they realize wait a second. I don't think you ever had it. You've heard of those false positive. So great. He's not going to miss a game. All good except His wife, Kelly. Underwent brain surgery in 2019. They've got four young kids too. His wife, Kelly, detailing in on Instagram how it was somewhat of a nightmare after his false positive. Said. It wasn't just the understandable scare or even the fact that Matthew and everyone else in the family needed to be tested repeatedly. It also included the fact that even after the NFL had determined it was a false positive. That info clearing the Stafford's was made public. So, she wrote. This is Matthew Stafford's wife. Our school told us they were not allowed back. I was approached in a grocery store and told I was endangering others. My kids were harassed and kicked off a playground. I was told I needed to wait my car when trying to pick up food, and the people closest to us had to get tested just so they could get backto work. To think of it this false positive. But then had all these other ramifications personally, the stuff that you normally wouldn't hear. It's just It's gonna be a messy, messy year if the NFL continues on with its plan, no preseason games, but will continue on to play. Good luck. There's just so many players. So many players. You got 53 in the active roster. You have practice squad, guys, You've got trainers. You've got coaches. Got owners. You've got management. You've got officials. Is a lot A lot to try and pull off.

"matthew stafford" Discussed on Blogging the Boys
"We are delivering Saturday episodes. Now you know why not do us out of episode. I mean honestly when you think about it. Saturdays Saturday's Day Ryan today that ends and wise people have to say and Saturdays honestly kind of the most important day in some senses when it comes to an NFL week because it's the day before the game and my thought process long ago. was you got stuff to do. I got stuff to do on Saturdays. I mean you know. Maybe you've got to mow the yard. Maybe you gotTA rearrange the garage. Maybe you got a pinch something. Maybe you gotta go run errands. Maybe gotta go. GotTa you'll get that gift 'cause the birthday parties coming up. You guys got to be there you gotta be there at three. PM Are you gotTa leave the house at two fifteen. Because there's traffic never knows how it is crazy. You got to eat before because you don't like the food that life is crazy anyway. So Friday was a really interesting day across the NFL. We talked about that on Friday's episode with the Myles Garrett Fall out and what happened on Thursday night football suspended indefinitely as it's fate would have it and we'll see what happens. We'll see what comes of that. I think that there are a lot of people who ultimately agree with that however there is a tiny little cowboys spin A.. And that's why you come to the Ocho so I'm not looking past. Nineteen obviously going to win the super bowl this season. We all know that but In twenty twenty which is next Season The Dallas Cowboys play the AFC north that's per the NFL's rotating schedule. If you're aware that works every year the cowboys just like every team team. They play one division from the AFC won division from the NFC. It rotates so twenty twenty year next the cowboys play the AFC north so they last played the AFC north in two thousand sixteen. They traveled to Pittsburgh and Cleveland. They'll host the steelers and Browns in two thousand twenty two teams involved and Thursday night football but the reason I bring that up is is because in two thousand eight so in twenty twenty. That'll be twelve years ago in two thousand eight. The Dallas Cowboys played the Cleveland Browns in a week. One they were on the road in Cleveland. Actually the last time they were in Cleveland before that two thousand sixteen game and so if the cowboys drew the browns in the I I don't know month of the season even if Myles Garrett suspension which is indefinite bleeds into next season. It's possible that the cowboys could play the Cleveland browns without Myles Garrett out there I I know that's looking really really really far into the future but again I know that's why you come here You also come here obviously for current discussions when it comes to the Dallas Cowboys and and the cowboys tomorrow. WE'LL BE IN DETROIT. The three one three taken on the lions. We've found out on Friday. I was GONNA say on Thursday founded on. We kind of found that on Thursday but depending depending on how seriously you took officially found out on Friday the quarterback Matthew Stafford will not play in this game for the Detroit Lions. This is a huge judge. Detail this is a I mean. This is when it's all said and done. You could look back on this and I don't think this is exaggerating. We could all look back on this and say that's that's a thing not a move but that's a detail that helped the cowboys win the NFC East we talked about this on five. Tiebreakers at the COPS ARE GONNA need if they do lose that game the Philadelphia. It's GonNa come down to comment upon and things like that. The Eagles beat the lines. And excuse me. The lions beat the Eagles and so if the cowboys can compete Detroit and I think a lot a lot of us thought that they could probably beat the lions with Matthew Stafford Especially if he was not one hundred percent but if they can beat Detroit that will be very very valuable down the stretch and Jeff Driscoll. Wow it's interesting how these things always Kinda Come Full Circle Jeff Driscoll Louisiana tech a lot of people liked him in the two thousand sixteen. NFL draft raft. You'll note obviously. It was twenty sixteen when the Dallas Cowboys Drafted Dak Prescott address goal went two rounds later originally drafted by the San Francisco. Forty niners driscoll driscoll has started six games in his NFL career most of them with the Cincinnati Bengals and he has not done too well. But Hey you know that can always change. This could be the week in six starts. Jeff Driscoll has won one of them last season on December sixteenth Interesting how that would work twelve sixteen and we were talking about the AFC north and the cowboys played them in twenty twelve in two thousand sixteen. That's the twenty twenty two two thousand eight and JEFF DISCO WASN'T AFC north on this happened. Those are things that just entertain me. But Jeff Driscoll one against the Oakland raiders while a member of the Cincinnati Bengals is most recent start obviously came last week on the road against the Chicago bears through the ball more times than ever had right in the NFL. Ultimately last week in the Windy City was twenty seven. Forty six for two hundred sixty nine yards. That is the most that has ever thrown for in an NFL. Game one touchdown one interception in his six starts he has thrown an interception in three of them he is thrown at least one touchdown in five of them So drifter your school. I mean you know. I'm not saying that he's anything that you really have to be worried about. But I mean he's a relevant factor and the lions are a defense defense that I think is has some sneaky potential But overall can be scored on Trey Flowers and area slayer obviously names. You GotTa know But the cowboys should should be able to score. I don't WanNa say it will but it should be able to put up the points that they're going to need to put up to win and I think defensively you know this. This game has the potential to be a really big right game game for the cowboys. I mean you know. They didn't slow down Alvin. Cook that in slowdown kirk cousins. Really and so. Now you get an opportunity with Jeff Driscoll to kind of flex some muscle get a win. Get to six and four. We're Kinda give yourself some confidence before the big game next weekend in New England and I think we've seen the cowboys and they didn't totally admit this but We've seen them kind of look. Look past again at there in the middle of I mean we've seen the cowboys look towards a different opponent. Think when the cowboys played the saints we kind of saw because they were looking forward to you know towards the Green Bay packers game obviously when it came to the jazz. A lot of people thought they were looking ahead of the game against the Eagles and so that can can be something that can hurt. NFL team can hurt any team. Really and so I mean. I don't know that they have the ability to do that. I mean losing to the Minnesota Vikings kind of You know ruined the ability to look past anything and it's another couch trying to position where they really do have to take this week by week. And maybe you're saying that's what I want. I want them to focus on one game at a time when we get a time one day gotta be better today than you were yesterday. Got To win one game and we'll take an inch by inch so to speak and I think that's what the cowboys are ultimately going to have to do. You cannot look ahead and ultimately you know. We talked about this last week before the game against the Vikings. If I told you before the cavs play the Vikings that you could only win two of the next three games James Vikings Lines Patriots and let you pick which you would have wanted you would have definitely pick the patriots right like you would have absolutely picked the Patriots game when in reality that one means less it's an AFC team wins against AMC. Opponents are nice. I mean don't get me wrong. It's a win. An all. Windsor are valuable in the NFL. But it's the winds against conference teams as a wins against division teams. Those are the ones that go along our way when it comes to making the playoffs and so I mean look I I hate to say it this way but over these next two weeks. The win against the lines is much more important than a win against the Patriots. I mean that's just the reality of it. That's the way the rules work. And speaking of the Patriots they will visit the Philadelphia vehicles on Sunday so a lot happening this week. That really could shape the way. This division looks in a couple of days. You know we'll be doing a podcast tomorrow evening tomorrow afternoon Ish recapping the game will obviously know the result of the eagles game as well so maybe at this time tomorrow defending I win. You're listening the cowboys will have stretched their lead in the NFC east and at this point every win counts every slight little bit that you can gain on the Philadelphia Eagles a huge. Because I mean it's a division that's going to be really tight I mean it's arguably the Titus Division from the from the perspective that you're either going to win or you're not going to be a playoff team because you look at the NFC west. That's a really tight race. Obviously between the seahawks the forty niners right. Whoever doesn't win that GONNA be a wildcard team you look at the? NFC North the packers and the Vikings where it doesn't win that they're still going to be a wildcard team. I think you look at other divisions maybe the I don't think the AFC East is a tight race but obviously the bills if they don't win it w wildcard team given the way the AFC looks maybe you WanNa throw the AFC south out there You you know if you think the titans and cold I mean even the Jaguars honestly are GonNa make things dicey in that division for the Texans and I don't know but that's what I'm saying is in the NFC east. It's not even the whole division for the Cowboys Eagles. It is win or go home and whoever doesn't win this division whoever is not in the playoffs is going to have to have a long hard look. Look in the mirror over the course of the OSCE because the cowboys or if it's a conference excuse me. I mean you know what the narrative will be. What's going to happen Jason Garrett or they're going to retain them they're going to senator extension etcetera etcetera etcetera her if the Eagles don't win the division and therefore miss out on the playoffs again? The conversation will be while. What happened? Peterson you on the Super Bowl. Two years ago. And you've lost the division Asian last two years in a row to the cowboys. You can't get over that Hump what's going on Carson Wentz. What happened Nick? Foles was able to do it two years in a row. He went to the playoffs. Why can't you do it? And so there are a lot of consequences hanging in the balance and this weekend tomorrow specifically is going to move them in one direction or another So I think needless to say we're all pulling for the cowboys and I'll pulling for the Patriots. You better have the best weekend ever I. Just I mean like stop talking about it. Just be about have the absolute best we. Can you never know. This is a bit of a shorter episode. We got one up. I mean it's cowboys. Lonzo that Matthew Stafford you know. There's not a lot of meat on this bone. Shout Joseph Randall. But I mean it's something that we yeah some excited you know anytime you lose away the cowboys loss to the Vikings using comeback. And you can hopefully get a win. It puts a lot of wind in those sales sales. And I think we all believe Gobs Neil Lot of winning their sales these days if feels life you know if you just pay attention to it feels like the cowboys are the worst team in the NFL. There in first place in the division. And I'm not trying to say like hey back off. They're really good team. But things could be a lot worse and hopefully they will be a lot better. Next time we talk as the Dallas Cowboys visit the Detroit Lions Montana and speaking of Mahayana with all that being said we will see you magnon my friends as always go cowboys. NPR's out..

What is your quarterback sort of aging in reverse he's getting botox it's very different so stafford is not having work talks Villanova genuinely it's like his body's like oh it's time for us to get young now is it is it like Sam Bradford where he always looks like a kid dressed up as an NFL player acceptive Sam Bradford were progressively getting lower which is to say what the younger which is to say he were being Benjamin Button so it's not about the baby he's a baby he also like I remember a couple years ago be like wow that looks like a guy that really is aggressive about maintaining the list on the wall at parties about beer pong and then now I'm like that doesn't even look old enough to present beer pong called Beirut's Yay Pay Room thirty I know but he looks he he this year fourteen put fourteen this year Okay Matt Stafford shaves like he's going to go backwards into frosted tips and a Puka Shell talking to know what to do with Abercrombie would yes fourteen year old Katie is going to I'm getting older and they stay the same no they don't they get younger what's happening illegal right how many okay how many other games and then just Aaron Rodgers had no billion touchdowns for to everybody I know the receivers between the running backs and wide receivers have at least two catchers one Velez Ganley had he's a mob didn't have one allison didn't have one it was really weird it was and obviously to Adams injured still what's a why so I didn't watch the gain did anybody did either of you watch it it's okay if you didn't there's lot games on yesterday I just want to know what was the why was it so much different I think he was playing a raiders team that there are secondary is not the they've been pretty good but he was just picking them apart I only got to see the first half so I missed the fired from those that I heard from who did watch this they said it felt more like this was a collaborative effort with leflore and Rogers we're in previous games it had felt like maybe first half looked La Fleurian and love that second half looked Rogers Ian not much journal Roger Rogers L. Jernigan rider person that's a play ride sure the jury's out on I'm not anyway but we do like reinstall stick with that seemed more like they had found this balance of Rogers being able to do the things that he thrives that while also playing within the system that's good thank you for that that's good analysis. Cj That's how you doing that's how it's done be more like Sarah I'm going to try my best had two touchdowns he's the only receiver on that team mark like yeah allegedly hard knocks superstar waller?

There's yeah better probably a field chase edmunds in the number nine car I think that's it for the football you're wrong Jay in a power powerful sitting down famously so here's the thing the Patriots played tonight Monday night football do and the big story everyone's talking about Charlie booth in genesis halftime show on do you think I don't know do we think it's going to be live because last week was live on the field it's like where's the car and now this week I'm on the edge of my seat but I guess if you'll insist we gotta talk about the football the plane the jets and you had told me three weeks ago that I was GonNa say that I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm intrigued by this match up I would have been like by that I say dumps it all the time but yeah so Sam Darnold back the Patriots have less so in recent years but in the past like sometimes division lead the jets will just like play them well which I'm not looking forward to and we're GONNA see how it goes the only thing I think is a other than the fact that the Patriots the best thing going for them is that Sam darnold slipped up this week he done fucked up and he said that the jets offense is unstoppable quickly of the best defense in the League but one of the best defense in the league and you're going to give him bulletin board material I don't know that that's your smartest move Sam Darnold but yeah Hey darnold what if his name was D.

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

"If it had been the lions, I don't know what I would have done as an ardent hawks hard knocks fan. I know what I would have done. I would've not watched hard knocks. I would have watched it just out of curiosity. We had a conversation in the office a couple of weeks ago, and I wrote something kind of connected to about the teams that are just kind of sputtering and spinning their wheels. But the lions are probably the most boring team in the league. There is nothing particularly intriguing about the Detroit Lions. And if I had to watch, what is an incredible piece of documentary filmmaking every single year about that team? It just would have been so so tedious, but now exact opposite of that. What about Matthew Stafford's chugging, which I found to be quite thrilling. I mean, that was fun. And that's a good thing. But I mean magic Stafford is not a particularly interesting person, nor particularly exciting one he's he is, Matthew Stafford is kind of, like you know, there's a certain baseline of NFL quarterbacking where it's like Matthew Stafford Andy Dalton that group of guys and they are what they are. And there's not much to be said about them at this point. What if you had to name, Matthew Stafford facts, it just outside of his play and his crew biography, what besides him being high school and youth ball. Friends with Clayton Kershaw could only thing I know about him. He went to Georgia. Yeah, yeah, he was the number one overall draft. Yeah, that's it. That's what I have about Matthew Stafford. I met a guy one time in Argentina, who is his high score Seaver gave me a whole breakdown. It was so weird is the weirdest thing I've ever been to. I was at a party and the guy was like I was as high school receiver you at a party in Argentina. Yeah. I it was very strange. And the guy was like I played wide receiver for Matthew Stafford. He gave me a full of full scouting report. How'd you end up at a party in Argentina? I don't know. Why was I Mexico City today but that was travel? She's on my life was at this thing. This thing we have a friend in Argentina. And she this thing, you, Freddie Argentina that sense rate, a party in a city or. No, no, no, no. That's a little different.

All 12 playoff coaches are tied to Bill Walsh or Parcells
"The head coaches in the playoffs that season come from the coaching. Trees of other Bill Walsh for Bill Parcells Abella check. Anthony Lynn, Sean Payton. All coached under Parcells Jason Garrett and Bill O'Brien are further down the Parcells coaching tape. But they all come from the Bill Parcells coaching tree. And that means the other seven come from the Bill Walsh coaching tree. Andy Reid coached under Mike Holmgren was Walsh disciple. Four others come directly from Andy. That's John Harbaugh. Matt Nagy Doug Peterson and Frank Reich. So as we prepare to watch these games this weekend and throughout these playoffs. There is still the influence of those two legendary preeminent coaches of the eighties. If you will in Walsh and parcels what what thoughts Trump to your mind? When you see that? Look, I know that Bill walls is someone who is highly highly respected by guys like parcels end by guys like Bill Belichick. He's at the very very top of this whole thing. And they as far as situational football's concern, and as far as really just being able to build an entire football federation. He's set the standard everyone else is trying to follow now. And now is it is pretty cool though to watch kinda how bills people have done how Andy Reed's people were doing. I mean, it's it's really neat. Because really there's only so many things you can do in full. There's only so many formations you can come up with and so many defenses you can run then it just comes down to good play styles. Make fights right and Walsh that the west coast against the smashmouth run the ball in play defense style of ourselves. And if you look at it that still holds true today. Most of the Andy Reid disciples over there. Bill walsh. They're going to get the ball out. Quick. Quick eater intermediate passing game highly rhythmic west coast offense. Then you look at the Bill Parcells disciple disciples, we're going to run the football player action shots down the field and had this big physical defenses that try to beat you up and want to make this game playing the phone booth. You've heard me say this on this show that if the guys that are really good the great coaches right now, and the guys that are going to continue to be one of those eight teams looking for aid coach on finding the guy.

He will be our quarterback here multiple times during the course of said conversation. Chris renwick. I think that that puts that to rest. Yeah. He spoke glowingly of Matthew Stafford. He believes that they can win the Super Bowl. And he he's kind of their guy who does the said the quiet things that nobody hears about. And and does his best to try to make players better. So yeah. It doesn't seem like there's any of that luster lost in Allen park with number nine. I'm not sure that we'll ever like maybe fully find out what what ailed Matthew Stafford this year. Bob Quinn, referred to it as quote, the back thing. But I can tell you this.

"He's got tons of friends in a business now. And he sure is he is coached thirteen college ABA in teams, which may not really be an endorsement he can't coach college without leaving a mess behind. He is famously the only known coach who hates the actual games. He'd rather this because who's a to please someone has got to tell him. It's over weight. I think. Torino just did. It's the end of the year time when they give out awards for the two thousand eighteen this or that. So my two thousand eighteen fall on his sword award goes to the man who this past week said this, quote, I think there's something special about a guy getting a chance to play as entire career in one place. I would love to be one of those guys the person who said that was quarterback Matthew Stafford. And he said it about the Detroit Lions if that doesn't warrant some kind of metal. I don't know what does or a checkup critics in Motown. But calling for a quarterback switch in recent weeks as the lions played like, well, the lions and Stafford's accuracy in numbers have diminished, and it would have been a perfect time for Stafford himself to say, yeah, you know, maybe it's time to try someplace else someplace I might win. Instead he doubled down and said he wants to stay here. His whole career in Detroit. Are you kidding me? That's like saying that this place Alcatraz is fine. I'm good Detroit has never been to a Super Bowl. Has won one playoff game in the last fifty plus years and his botched more draft picks than a bad TV analysts. Nope quarterback since Bobby lane has ever come out of a lion's career happily. The franchise seems cursed yet Stafford who doesn't miss games battles through endless injuries and not once has ever thrown at teammate or coach under the bus, and he continues to want to play here.

Should A.J. Green be a hall of famer?
"Jones is going to go down as the receiver of our generation than Antonio Brown. Right behind him. What those are one. A and one b but I think green is probably win that Odell Beckham Paul L passing area. You're going to be a lot of wide receivers and quarterbacks and he's being tough on him. I let's hit some games here. LA Rams thirty Detroit Lions sixteen. Not a big surprise. Even though is that the lions go into the playoffs. They're cooking is a lot of Todd Gurley today. Jared Goff wasn't asked to do too much. This is more about the lions just every year. They seem to be getting a little further away from four years ago. They were threatening team. They felt like a threatening team them and the Bengals. And now they feel like the worst team in their own division. So last week, I'm DP show. Peter King NBC sports said that he thinks the lion should trade Stafford Matthew Stafford to Jacksonville or something like that. And I thought that was crazy like why would you give up early quarterback? But I do understand it doesn't feel like going anywhere with Stafford. And I don't know who's going to trade for him because he's awfully expensive. And he I don't know how you sell that to the fans that's the way for me. I think they're twenty teams in the NFL who would take that contract bathroom Stafford's amazing. Well, but how do you sell it to the fans? Here's a guy who's never won anything. He's like what I guess there are teams that need him. But you know, Jacksonville, you're gonna give up. Jalen Ramsey, and oh, you give up. Jalen ramsey. You cannot get them out the door fast enough. I think I'm going to give up for next to nothing. Because of the attitude. Saturday has got the arm of a Greek God, then it'd be Detroit should not let him go. Right. No. I don't think I it's very rare. Have you is there ever been a case where a prime quarterback quarterback in his prime is like it'd be very odd. If I'd say when when Jay Cutler was with the Broncos, and they could have kept him, and they let him go in his prime. He made them pretty relevant. And then he went right to the bears, but Stafford's a hall of Famer he's different than he's he's hot and more time and colored more playoff wins at the time. Stafford's just done done done it for longer any sort of face that team. And he's a great guy from whatever it says. All right, speaking done teams. Here you go. Green bay. Packers lose a twenty two seventeen to Arizona Cardinals a lowly cardinals. Aaron Rodgers threw fifty passes the they

"Bears were facing Matthew Stafford in Detroit glitzy, Stafford bring them home and Downey goes they had no intention of sitting back there, and it's DeAnne Bush who comes in and Saks Matthew Stafford under the first half crowd here. And like it plenty of bears fans do. And that I believe will be the fifteenth different this year Bush closes the first half Jeff Johnny on WB beyond the bare sack Stafford twice and they also picked him off twice in in the lions twenty three sixteen. Eddie Jackson taking one of those interceptions in for a touchdown. The others by Kyle fuller. And that came with just about a minute remaining in the game. And also came in the end zone. Meanwhile, the various putting up enough offense in the absence of Mitchell Trubisky is chase. Daniel neither us for two touchdowns despite the bears ground game never really producing much always say, you know, this this Detroit defense, they're really strong against the run. They've they've been doing it all year long. And so for us we just felt like we had some advantages in the past game. And then we pick and choose when we'd run the ball. And and so they're they're not always pretty I mean. And so, but but the only thing that matters in the end is getting that letter. And that w and that's all we care about Torri Cohen and take one miso. Touchdown catches the bears now eight and three they don't play for a while not until December second when they visit New York and take on the giants. The lions fall the foreign seven the Vikings and Packers meet this weekend and Sunday football in the bears. Could ultimately be two and a half games up and the rest of the division. Should the Packers beat the Vikings other games today? There were two of them Dallas beating Washington thirty one twenty three and the saints beat the falcons thirty one seventeen drew Brees with four..

"Got hurt. Scott Mitchell got hurt may ended up playing Steve Berg who ended up. We won the game on the last field goal. Play the game. So don't count anybody out the lien. Let game at told that story spinning that yarn many times, but it is a common threat that maybe we've through the bears today here at Ford field against the Detroit Lions you do have to concern yourself though, with Matthew Stafford Matthew Stafford where a number nine in his jersey has still put up some really impressive games now to forty two three hundred Moriarty passing day. So if they make them one dimensional which actually spec the bears will that ball. Today. Jeff when I was watching the pregame warmups of Matthew Stafford he was going to your guy. Kenny golladay, and he was going routes at length down the sideline. And now that concerns me again about the prince amukamara Kenny golladay matchup because if they max protect and they have that one route that's run in. He can get the ball to them. There's good and bad that can happen there. If they make the cats that's a good for them. You always got to be aware of interference penalties in everything else that can have that one on one battle. If you wanna bring it away for you know, outside the backfield and get the ball out of the buffalo game four flags in that game prince, right and some were picked up four flags. So the last few games they are staying away from Kyle fuller and going at. Two in Chicago, the crowd support was so well received that Matthew Stafford had this as silent count here. He will be in control line of scrimmage because they'll here is cadence forty percent of the lions offense gone today with Jones junior and Johnson that's thirteen hundred sixty two yards from scrimmage coming up next. Mark grody as the sideline reporter. It's the bears and lions happy thanksgiving everybody. Thanks for listening on this wonderful holiday in America. Nothing like having football and Turkey and all the fictions on this day back with more on the PNC Bank, bears radio.
NFL Quarterback Analysis - Which teams have it made?
"You know, we were talking about Tom Brady, and I just don't buy into the, you know, the system quarterback thing. Although I do think if you put drew Brees where Tom is. I think he'd have a lot of success when when I got into a discussion the other day about Tom I asked an Hugh Jackson about this off the air. I said you face Tom Brady many times. What does he do athletically that special any o- one of the things he said is first of all he's bigger than you think when you when you walk up the Tom Brady, he's all a six four and a half six five. And he said the second thing is he throws a really good football. When you watch him on tape. If you didn't know it was Tom Brady what jumps out to you. I'm not talking about leader. Ship, but what jumps out to you physically? Well, I would definitely call an echo. Would you Jackson said at the second thing? He throws a really good ball, and it sort of became gospel early in his career that he doesn't have a big arm and a big arm is a relative thing, you know, who's arm is not in Matthew Stafford's arm. Let's say, but he throws a really good ball. And you know, that to just by common sense by where he plays and the fact that in November and December January his ball cuts through it does. So he throws a really good ball with a bigger arm and a better on people probably think. Yeah. That would also say that would make him really good apart from the mental which is very critical. But let's leave that aside for the moment was I think his ability to work within the pocket and navigate the pocket is outstanding. You know, we're not talking about being able to run a fast forty or run. Run outside the pocket and throw on the run. I'm talking about the ability to work really effectively with believe it or not relatively light feet in an area. Let's say this is over a little smaller than a boxing ring. Yeah. No, that's well, he slides very well. Yep. He's got an intuitive sense of pressure, which the great ones generally done. Have. You know, I was watching the Packers this last week and just an eye test. They don't do a lot of motion. They don't look clever as the Rams they don't look as sharp as the bears. We we've talked about Aaron Rodgers ad-libbing. Sometimes too much holding the ball too much. When I watched the Packers is some of this on McCarthy that they just state my the I test is Aaron has to provide the special and the creative. I don't see a lot of creative out of their offense. That's what my eyes tell me. Well, let me ask you this. You know, obviously, they want a Super Bowl. I can't remember everything they did six or seven years ago as I'm sure you can. Either. But my guess is that Mike McCarthy because he has a definite philosophy had a playoff a football hasn't changed dramatically fair. So if that's the case, then you know, what is ultimately changed? I, you know, I'm not sure exactly at answer that I think the Packers over the last number of years have not been very committed to running the football. I think they were more so back a number of years ago when you think about those two or three years consecutively that Ryan grant had where I don't have the numbers in front of me. But I bet he had two hundred thirty two hundred forty carries. And he was used essentially as feature back. You know, I don't think they've been running that style of offense in recent years. Speaking of the bears, John FOX was there with Trubisky. And now, it's Matt Nagy are they are they doing things because right now, I think the bears are better than the Packers. And I know him in the minority are they doing things offense eternally, which you believe are absolutely elevating Trubisky. They're averaging thirteen more points a game. What is he doing to a quarterback icy with a very low ceiling? Well, I think what what the matinees do and good offensive coach ado is they present defined reads and based on their route concepts versus anticipated coverages.
Matthew Stafford endures 10 sacks, 17 hits; Lions' OL 'embarrassed'
"The lions boy, it was an historic day. Really? You could call that Chris Villar in regards to what happened to Matthew Stafford by the Vikings. If that's what you want to call it. That's fine. With me. Ten sacks isn't going to lead to any nice things being said about them. They also only ended up with three field goals against the Vikings defense at a twenty four to nine loss. The dagger coming in the fourth quarter when Matthew Stafford made an ill advised lateral during a run to the right side that resulted in a defensive touchdown for the Vikings. He was asked what happened there? Yeah. Just trying to do too much. You know, hasn't really got anything going all day on offense and snuck out of the pocket, and and so on they're really just got slide and play the next play just trying to make too much happens. We'll Stafford ended with one hundred and ninety nine yards zero touchdowns zero interceptions. Carrie Johnson the leading rusher with just thirty seven yard. On twelve carries Marvin Jones six catches for sixty six yards in the game. After the game head coach. Matt Patricia was asked if losses like this can affect the psyche of his players tough guys. You know, they're mentally tough guys physically. Tough guys they go to work every day. We understand that the games aren't easy. It's very difficult. And doesn't matter. We got a game coming up this week. We gotta get ready for them. We gotta go back to work. So that's our mindset. It's gotta be our mindset. There's really no other options. There's no other choice. Well that game that he mentioned is in Chicago next week. Another big division game on the
"matthew stafford" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"All right, National Football League news, Matthew Stafford's about to join us. Now it game. It is a big game tonight, sir. Based off of what you just mentioned. The Odell Lil Wayne condo on ESPN that in the same way about ESPN twice gone around the teams to set up. Del sits down with a little Wayne and puts everything on, doesn't put him on blast, but just goes ahead and just throw. There is a very large number thirteen boss that ran over a number ten and ran over coach and ran over an organization that just made him the is paid receiver in the game. And now here comes the giants on a short week after that loss that just ripped their hearts out and showed it to pump in sixty three yard field goal after they come back from thirteen points down to take lead my gosh here come the eagles who come off two straight losses of their own app, Tennessee titans home against the Minnesota Vikings. Both teams needing it, giants win. Both teams are two and four. Eagles win. Giants are one in five and Philly at three and three is perfectly positioned to win this division. Because I said yesterday, I believe it's going to be nine wins. Nine wins is gonna take the NFC right now. What can that? It does. And if there's any team that has the ability to rip off several in a row, it's a team with a young dynamic quarterback that's still convalescing from a knee injury that has an offensive line that can protect him. They're running core definitely is depleted right now. That's why you're hearing Levy on bell and or Leshan McCoy coming up in the next couple of weeks of the trade deadline, a couple of weeks away that is a real possibility you hearing that. You've got alshon Jeffery is good as anybody outside the numbers. I to say that Cowboys would consider him number one receiver right defensively they can haunt they can get after people. They've got leaders all over the lot. They've got a coach and they've got a Super Bowl ring. Well, what's the problem? Then? It is a situation where they haven't had any continuity. Where it's now start number three in a row for once it start number two in a row for I'll Sean Jeffrey. They don't have the running back consistency that they had last year and he success at that front. And these things happen when your Super Bowl champ. Yeah, I think that that's essentially that they're just not clicking is tonight that night. I'm going to do this. I'm going to regret it short week on the road. I'm going to regret it, but do it. It's time for rich is ins unluckiest. And it's brought to you by my pillow because I might be crying in it. After I give you lock of the.
Detroit Lions' spirits lifted and renewed after dominating Patriots
"With a Sunday night. Shocker at Ford field, the lions defeat the New England Patriots last night with more. Here's w w j. Tony ortiz. Tony Roberta the lions were led to that. Stunning. Twenty six to ten win over the heavily favored patriots by running back kerryon Johnson who would run for one hundred one yards and by quarterback Matthew Stafford who threw for two hundred sixty two yards and a pair of touchdowns after the game. Stafford told reporters that victory over New England was the definition of a total team win. I mean when you describe it team win. I mean, that's it. Right special teams as great tonight Prater made everything you looked at which is great Sam did a great job kicking a ball defense was in, you know, incredible. Stopping the Ron pass really just frustrating. Their offense doing a nice job and our guys up front man dominated house. The fun thing for me to walk by the way Johnson's one hundred one yard game makes him the first lions running back to gain one hundred or more yards on the ground since Reggie Bush did back on November twenty eight two thousand thirteen that was the span of seventy games for the lions without a one hundred yard rusher. The longest in the NFL since the merger back in nineteen seventy.

"I like my job, so I'm gonna keep it that way. No, he's he is a very smart intelligent person. He's a fiery guy. You know, he's a guy that's gonna push us both physically mentally, emotionally, all push us to to be as good as we can be. And I think that's what he's all about. You know, as far as the other stuff goes all, we'll keep that kind of behind closed doors, but he's a, you know, I think he's gonna be a heck of eight coach. Have you liked him so far? I have, you know, he's he's a competitor everyday. We step out on that practice field. I feel like I'm competing against him. You know, he's a defensive mind guy, and I'm trying to go out there and and shred them up, and you know, throw a bunch of touchdowns and do all that. So it's a fun dialogue that we have out on the field and then obviously have a ton of respect for him and and his, you know, coaching pedigree where he came from what he's done, and I think he has some respect for, you know how I played the game for the last ten years too. So it's been good. So Matt, you, you've been in the league. Now this your tenth year and you've. Yet to experience playoff success. And I wonder. You know, we sit on the sidelines and it's easy for us to say, man, that must torment him or man. He doesn't. He's making so much money, blah, blah blah. But how is it to play nine years in this league to get so close and never to win a playoff game? Well, to this point, it's a few. No. I mean, that's what you play for you play for the the opportunity in the postseason. There's nothing like, you know, playoff football in the NFL gotten the taste that three times, and it's been a whole bunch of phone wish we would come out on top all three times, but you know, when the case, but that's what you play for. That's what we do all this for out here. This is the grind and in August, and you know, early September for this, these chances to go play in the postseason. So it's a long process to get there to grind every year, and I love every minute of it, but I just can't wait to make a back and and hopefully make a long-run, Matthew Stafford, really appreciate you joining me. I have a lot of admiration for you as a player, but. I think I have more admiration for you as a person reading about a lot of the things you've done off the field to try to make Detroit a better place. Quite honestly appreciate it. Yeah, it's, you know, it's a place that's come a long way in the nine years that I've been here and I'd like to be a little bit of a part of that, and it was, you know, Kelly, my wife and I've had the opportunity to help out some really incredible families and some people in need and obviously done some stuff with Mitch Albom. Who's an incredible, you know, philanthropic force in this city with some of our rec centers and things of that nature. So it's a place that needs help, and there's great people that are trying to lead the city back. And you know, I'm just trying to do my part. I remember at an maybe ten years ago when Bill Ford junior was running the team and we stood on the field before a game. I forget what year was, but he said, do you realize there is not a major grocery store in the city. Limits of Detroit. Yeah. I said that is insane. That's insane. I think there is now, but it because things have changed a lot. But this city has really when I go, I I love commerical go see Tigers once every other year. But when I go down there now it is. It's monumentally different than it was fifteen twenty years ago. No question. When I got here nine years ago, it wasn't a place you went. You know, you just didn't go downtown unless you're going to aligns gamer a Tigers game. And now you know, they brought the wings and and the pistons and put them in that beautiful new arena to there's so many new restaurants, Quicken Loans, bluecross blueshield of Michigan.
