Tatum scores 51, Celtics beat Hornets for 7th straight win
"Jason Tatum continued his challenge for the MVP award while carrying the Celtics to their second win over the hornets in three days, one 31 18. Boston is an NBA best 33 and 12 following its 7th straight win. Tate and port in 51 points, including 7 three pointers. He was 15 of 23 from the field and 14 of 14 from the line. 51 is big, but, you know, we played as a team. And I think that's what's been really big for us to use 6 or 7 games that we've been winning. The hornets lost for the 8th time in 9 games despite Jalen McDaniels, who hit 5 three pointers while scoring a career high 26 points. I'm Dave ferry.
RedState: RNC Has Been on a Spending Spree Since 2017
"Well let me tell you over here red steak Jennifer van laar I can't read it all But she points out that under this current RNC chair That they have been on a spending spree A spending spree She says despite Biden's economy in three straight cycles of election losses the RNC's big spending days are back with a vengeance They're back with a vengeance Perhaps because these losses both RNC donors and committee members are intensely interested in the committee's finances Late last week red state provided a report dated October 7 of this year that examined RNC's 21 22 spending Calculated more than $500,000 in private jet expenses $64,000 at clothing retailers $321,000 in floral arrangements To determine how that compared to the rest of Ronald McDonald's tenure Red state examined RNC expenditures from 2017 through 2022 In addition to a review of federal election commission data red states spoke with current vendors state party officials familiar with the workings former Stanford several Karen RNC members to verify their numbers and dates Our review found that amounts spent during the 21 22 election cycles seem to have been par for the course and possibly even lower than previous portions of McDaniels tenure Since 2017 the RNC has spent $3.1 million on private jet services

Lee Zeldin Will Not Run for RNC Chair, Still Calls for New Leader
"Lee zeldin, writing on Twitter, I won't be running for RNC chair at this time with McDaniels reelection pre baked by design. But that does not mean she should even be running again. Zelda goes on to say here and this is from Politico. Change is desperately needed, and there are many leaders myself included ready and willing to step up to ensure our party retools and transforms as critical elections fast approach, namely the 2024 presidential and congressional races. Folks, if we keep doing what we're doing now, we're going to be blown out in 2024. Zeldin wrote to RNC leaders last month, laying out the case for his potential bid. He came within 6 points of beating Kathy hochul in blue state, New York. Quote, no matter what, I am committed to doing absolutely everything in my power to help save our country with every ounce of my energy. Zelda urged the party to develop its fundraising apparatus, bolster its ballot collection and election integrity efforts and build its grassroots after Republicans fared worse than expected across the nation on election day. And again, Trump says Trump has been out there from day one saying no to early voting. Zelda says the better path forward would be for chairwoman mcdaniel to listen and respect the wishes of the actual grass roots, voters of our party, and allow the RNC to forge ahead with new leadership. Her greatest service to the Republican Party at this time would be to make room for a new chair.

Is It Time for a New RNC Chair? Kurt Schlichter Weighs In
"First want to get your thoughts on the RNC race. Do you think it's time for a new chair of the RNC? It's absolutely time for a new chair, chair. Ronan mcdaniel has a legacy of failure. She failed in 2018. She failed in 2020. She failed in a 2020 runoff. She failed in 2022. And she could very well fail today in Georgia, though if you are in Georgia, go out there and do your best to make it one in four for rona mcdaniel. I'm ran a Twitter poll yesterday. Unscientific, but of course, science is what brought to you masks and vaccines that don't work. 5992 people voted. I asked, who would you like to see as the RNC chair? Would you like to see rona do it again? Would you like to see Harvey Dylan? Mike lindell, Lee zelton, who's been talked about rona got .6%. Point 6. That is a statistical anomaly that's actually mind-blowing. It's almost impossible to get 99.4% of Americans to agree on anything. Even like how bad nickelback is or Rage Against the Machine, how terrible they are. You can't even get 99.64 on that. But 99.4% of Republican base voters, my core Twitter audience said hell no to more years of rona McDaniels failure.

Jacobs caps huge day with TD in OT, Raiders beat Seahawks
"Josh Jacobs rushed for a franchise record 229 yards and two touchdowns including an 86 yard run for the wind scoring overtime as the Las Vegas Raiders beat the Seattle Seahawks 40 to 34. Jacobs also had 74 receiving yards to give him 303 yards from scrimmage for the game. Coach Josh McDaniels says Jacob's does what it takes to win. I think toughness, he's a football player.

Sen. Tom Cotton Shares His Advice for Silicon Valley and Others
"Senator cotton, two very quick things. And I'll let you go. Get Google ronna McDaniels out this morning saying, Google is muffling RNC messaging. And I don't think we're on a make stuff like that up. And everywhere I go, and I'm going to go out on a barnstorming tour. I hear about the Zuckerberg boxes. I think Mark Zuckerberg meta a whole out of which they're never going to get. What is your advice to Silicon Valley in anticipation of the regulation that is coming in election 2022? I just don't think Zuckerberg or Eric Schmidt or anyone from these companies can repeat the mistakes of the past. My advice to any business leader, I'm giving it to many of them is to remember what Michael Jordan said. Republicans buy sneakers too. And Republicans vote in elections and while the left may control the media and corporate America and Hollywood and big tech and college campuses, the one thing they don't control is the elected parts of our government. And when our voters make it clear, they are tired of having big tech companies suppress their views or for that matter, having big corporate executives use their corporate power to weigh in for left wing causes. They should expect the backlash. So if you stick your nose where it doesn't belong, don't be surprised if it gets punched.

"And I think that they need to go out and get multiple guys to fill those shoes. I don't think that it's as simple as all we're going to promote for any sincerity from assistant running backs coach to running backs coach and we're going to bring in shadow Shay to be the coordinator, right? I don't think that's enough for that side of the football. What are your thoughts on McDaniels with the Raiders? Do you think that this is going to work out? Something tells me I'm not saying he's going to win a Super Bowl there. I'm not saying he's going to start a dynasty with the Vegas in Vegas. But I actually think he's going to fare a lot better this time around than he did last time. You know, I think he can have success there, the real question to me is what do they do with the quarterback? And he was pretty non committal when it came to Derek Carr yesterday like one way or the other. And I didn't expect anything different. I didn't expect him to say, yeah, we're going to sign him to a new ten year dealer. Yeah, we're going to move on, but they can kind of go either way. I feel like the Raiders might push him to get a new quarterback because isn't that why you hire Josh McDaniels afterwards? Not from this class though. That's the thing if I'm Josh McDaniels. I'm not latching my wagon to any of the but that's the thing. Like you have another year of car. So I mean, maybe you take a guy in the third round fourth round this year, right? You see, you take a flyer, but you give car one more year and then you go look at it. I think cars a good quarterback for Josh McDaniels offense, so if they do stick with him, I think there could be something. The other thing is that divisions just so tough with mahomes in Herbert and probably Rogers, right? We think Rogers is going to Denver. So how long have you know how long of a lease do they give them? That's the other thing. Yeah. They might win. They realistically, if they win the let's say, the next three years, what did they win this year, ten games, 11 games? Let's say that let's say they went double as you came to next three years. It's a real chance they missed the playoffs all three of those years, winning double digit games. Like so as Josh McDaniels of failure or what, it's a really interesting spot. I think, you know, does he succeed? It depends how you wanted to find success. I think he's going to win football games. I think he's going to have the Raiders competitive. Look, if he can get a quarterback like him Holmes or Herbert, then that would be a home run. But I think he'll be all right. It's just a matter of how long is his leash? Yeah, well that's kind of why I think that he wants to hang on to Derek Carr because if you draft a quarterback and we've seen this how many times, when you draft a quarterback, you gotta think he drafted last time..

"You should be a head coach, but you're too good to be unemployed. Let's get you back in here. Let's get you back in the league. I think that would be a great gesture from Bill if he didn't bring floors back, assuming flora's canon wants to come back. Yeah. Okay, moving on here. Now I want to talk about Josh McDaniels, the Raiders, the Patriots offensive coordinator position here, moving forward. Mcdaniel's up there at the podium yesterday in black and silver getting introduced as the Raiders head coach. There were some moments there where I thought the look on his face was kind of like, did I make a mistake? You know, maybe those were just some of the freeze frames that we got, right? Some of the confused looks or the bewildered looks of Josh McDaniels, but I've gone back and forth on this so many times because I think that there's definitely two schools of thought here that are both correct. And I think that's what makes this thing a little bit tricky for me. Josh mcdaniel is a good football coach. He is a good football coach. I think that's a fact that it can't be disputed. At the same time, on the other hand, the Patriots might benefit from having some fresh ideas and having some fresh perspective on the offense. So both those things can be mutually exclusive they can both be true. But I have a tough time looking for where they go from here in terms of do they is this a good thing for the Patriots ultimately? That Josh McDaniels is out of the building because you lost some good football coach with tons and tons of experience that's coached at the highest level in the biggest of games, but you also have to recognize that at times the offense has not been what the Patriots needed to be moving forward. Yeah, so I don't know that we can fully answer that question yet because we don't know who's replacing him, right? And I think if they bring it Bill O'Brien, and it seamless with Mac Jones and he can add some of that more modern stuff into the offense. I don't know that it's necessarily McDaniels left, but I don't know that it's a bad thing either, right? You kind of took that next step. That's the NFL. That's what happens. If they bring in somebody who's over their head and suddenly Mac Jones play looks shaky in the offense takes a step back. Yeah. Then, yeah, you're going to wonder wow what McDaniels had stayed when they kept making progress. So I don't want to take a total cop out answer, but again, I don't think he can answer that question without knowing who's next. I think they have a very it creates a big time situation in a very important decision for Bill Belichick here..

"They take him as a package deal, right? Dave ziegler and Josh McDaniels, that one was obviously about connections in relationships and things like that. And I look at some of these other minority candidates, I hope Byron leftwich gets the Jacksonville job, but because he is not wanting to work with trend bulky, which can you blame them? Don't blame them at all, but because of that, he might not get it, right? They might have to go in a different direction because they don't want to fire Trump bulky. So, man, it is a this is this is what happens. You and I have dealt with politics like this in our daily lives too and I'm sure everybody has that that's over the age of working age that's living in the real world. You deal with these politics all the time in the workplace. With interviews and who gets a job and who doesn't get a job, I feel for Brian Flores. I don't know where this goes for him. I don't know what more we can really say about it at this point. It's just an unfortunate situation. And one last thing I want to spin it a little bit. I would just say one other thing on this is the league might have to have Steven Ross sell the team. Yeah. I think that needs to be continued. If he was truly paying Brian for his under the table to lose football games and absolutely. Well, so there's that, which is a massive massive, massive problem. I would say equally as big of a problem. And I don't know if you didn't get to the 7. After the 2019 season immediately, or I think it was during the 2019 season, I have to go back and find the exact quote. Basically, before Brady was officially a free agent, apparently Stephen Ross leaned hard on Flores to recruit Brady, which would have been tampering. Right. To the point where he set up he basically pulled a parent trap. He set up a lunch for Flores at a, I think it was like on a boat or at a restaurant near a boat, some of the boat. He set up a lunch for Flores at an establishment where he knew Brady would be without telling Flores, Brady would be there and when Flores found out he left. In florez alleges after that point, it all went downhill and Ross got very cold towards him. So basically, if he fired Flores because and this is and isn't including the racial component of it, if he fired Flores because one he refused to lose games on purpose too because he wouldn't tamper in illegally recruit Tom Brady, then he needs to go, then he can't run that team..

"That week one game against the jets where they come out and I think Randy Moss had like a 180 receiving yards on 9 catches a 51 yard touchdown from Brady and immediately, that thing was a wagon, right? You just knew right away week one that, oh my God, Randy Moss can still play. And now he's catching the passes from prime Tom Brady. Who knew that at the time, that prime Tom Brady would last 20 years, but regardless, that season was magical for so many different reasons, but I just remember, I think it was 38, 14 patriots in week one. I just looked this up before we started recording. Randy Moss had 9 catches for a 183 yards in the touchdown. When everybody in the world thought he was washed. And he comes to the Patriots and lights the world on fire from the jump. I also look at some of the games earlier on. I will always remember that AFC title game in Pittsburgh. I thought that was one of the one where he was sick. Yeah, he's sick. It's Brady's flu game. The Pittsburgh Steelers were 15 and won that year. The Patriots were 14 and two and were the number two seed in the conference, which I can't imagine has happened very many times if at all outside of that one instance. The Steelers are 15 and one, they get the number one seed, the Patriots go to Pittsburgh. They destroy the Steelers in Pittsburgh. Brady had to touch down past the Deon branch. I think is probably the most signature throw of that game. Rodney Harrison had a huge game on the defensive side of the ball for the Patriots. I think did you have a pick 6 riding Harrison in that game? Or is it just a pick? I'm trying to remember from my play I always remember from that game as the Deion branch end around or he's waving goodbye to the dealers. Yeah. They absolutely destroy the Steelers and Ben's rookie year. That was one of the great early Brady games as well. That's what I wish we were talking about today. Well, we're talking, don't even don't even put that qualifier on it. We're talking about it. We're controlled the narrative. Let.

"That's an interesting call, you know? Yeah, I mean, I think you can take some solace in the fact that as a retread, he's a guy who's seen the other side of it. He knows what's definitively not going to work. He's not going to make the same mistakes that he made the first time around. And I don't know, just look, when you step back, it's like, okay, well, who do you want running your offense? Greg Olson, or Josh McDaniels, no offense to Gary Olson, but you probably want Josh McDaniels at that point. Even if he did, he wanted to hire Matt eber flu did hire Matt ebert flus in the Annapolis. He did also want to bring Jackie should be with him. So you can take that for what it's worth. At that point. But it just seems like a guy who has he figured out how he screwed it up the first time. And it's just unlikely it's going to screw up in that same way again. And it probably is a rager seen that. Look, they're not going to they're not going to be better than the chiefs, but can they hang around? Can they win ten 11 games every year? And be in the postseason and try and go on a Bengals like run? Sure. Yeah, why not? I think so. I mean, it's set up nice, you know, Derek Carr makes nothing. Yeah. You know, comparatively. And until you have to pay him serious quarterback money, he's the best bargain in football. I would argue in terms of that. I mean, outside of guys that are on their rookie contract and stuff like that. But so I mean, it's set up nice. And Nevada is a nice place to live. I've heard really nice things about Henderson. You know the suburb? Yeah. I had a former colleague there who said I look, I look to my left in my pool and I see mountains and in my right and I see the Vegas strip. And so every night is just a good night. Nice. Yeah. So that's a nice little tourism. Yeah. Yeah. Brian Gable to the Giants. And we like Ryan Abel here. We are Brian David fans based on his overwhelming success in Buffalo, but I was most excited by reports that Brian David is a big Daniel Jones fan, because he gets it. He understands. He understands the quarterback is there. It is time for the coaches to carry their load as far as this team goes. It'll be interesting to see how he fills out the staff. And I think that he's a super engaging guy. I think he'll be able to command a room, no doubt. But he is so devastating in the booth as a play caller, like a matchup recognition play caller. And that's always the one thing that I always wonder because he is so good at noticing those little things, so I put this guy here in this guy there and then this is how this is going to this is how this play is going to work..

"It was just and you know, it almost had a feel of like what was going on with the chiefs midseason during their slump where, okay, the offensive line isn't quite the biggest issue. They just seem uncomfortable what they're doing out there as far as mahomes and his receivers go and that I don't know. That is kind of just how it played out. And Luna Romeo had one unfortunate call and a third and one from midfield where Kelsey reminiscent of last week just sort of got loose up the seam there and they gave a big commercial there that put the chiefs in scoring range. But that was like it, and it was kind of like they moved inside the ten and it was kind of like, all right, well this is gonna be a touchdown and but no, and it really wasn't close to being in touch at any point. Yeah. It's interesting. You wonder Patrick Mahomes put the game on his shoulders after, and he said, you know, you can't be up that much and lose, and that's on me. And again, I mean, I hate to, you know, I ate like half a tub of hummus during this game. So it's like Patrick Mahomes that are leading different lives. You know, I'm not, I'm not in the pocket there and being able to make these decisions. But the whole game he just looked a little off, you know? Even in the good moments, like the me call Hardman touchdown, that's a throw that needs to be on the other side of him. You don't want that to be out in front of him because somebody could jump that and pick that off and the Tyree kill play that we were just talking about if you just, if you turn around and you run the other way like everybody is flooding with that play, there is nobody on the backside of that. And you could have just run it in for a touchdown. Again, it's really easy for me to say that, you know. So I don't know what's going on in his world. Obviously, I would have ran it. And I would have, you know, I would have the chiefs in the Super Bowl right now. But that's the difference between Patrick Mahomes and I I'm a 5 on 5 basketball participants. So obviously I have the athletic shops to get that done. But I can't believe how I slighted you so badly and I'm like unintentionally, but I can feel I can feel the anger on this and I feel so, so bad about it, right?

"The game plan a lot, but especially a guy who could do zone read consistently, but also like throw the ball and be active in the pocket too. I think once Lance is caught up the forty-niners are going to really start torching people. But I think we saw that. Like, you know, this is still a good team. It's a really well coach team. You know, I think they were taken to their limits this year, like the forty-niners overachiever, I think, in a lot of in a lot of respects. And so I don't know what you really get upset about. I mean, are you really going to be all frustrated about a jacuzzi tart dropped interception? You know, I mean, that's kind of a break of the game, you know? The one Shanahan decision that is coming under some level of criticism, I guess, was the punt on fourth and two in the fourth quarter, that sort of preceded the tart dropped interception. And I think this does come back to Jimmy Garoppolo. And when I say this, if you isolate the clip, it sounds like criticism of Jimmy Garoppolo, it's not Jimmy Garoppolo is not a quarterback who you can trust in the same way that Brandon staley would trust and Herbert or Zack Taylor would trust a Joe burrow or Andy Reid would trust a patrio Holmes et cetera, et cetera, that is your quarterback. It's a highly schemed offense. The way you are going to convert that first down is by some sort of schematic advantage. And I thought Shanahan threw his best punch on third down. They ran that tendency breaker that Trent Williams motion to the right side of the formation where he just basically destroys the entire right side of the world. And you run him behind it and you get 8 yards or whatever. And they knew everyone knew about that. They figured the rams would overreact to the Williams motion. They didn't. They stayed home. They made the play. And we kind of lose track when we sort of say, okay, well, what is the numbers say? What are the analytics say in this situation? If you don't have the play and you don't have the quarterback who you can just sort of say, okay, well, I'll put the ball in his hands and he'll do it. He'll make the play. You really, it's maybe not a great chance to go for it at that point. I didn't mind the punt at all. No, I didn't either. And you know what I love, though. Trent Williams, if you watch that play in slow motion. So it's not just, it's not just a typical like motion or like jet motion, right? If you watch all the if you watch all the forty-niners players, all their tight ends, especially when it's a running play like that, they arc their motion in order to get a little extra velocity going at the line of scrimmage and it's so cool. They just kill people with that. It's super awesome. And I just love it. And I think that'll be like watch next year every single team in the NFL is going to be teaching that this off season. They're all going to run that. That's sort of arced motion to get them more leveraged at the line of scrim. But yeah, and not that I saw this, but I can anticipate the complaint that why wouldn't you have just stuck Trey Lance out there and run zone read because you could have picked up the first down..

"Remember Matt Patricia came back and it was kind of like, you know, a little bit quiet. Maybe that situation was quieter just because of how Matt Patricia came back after getting canned by the Lions and kind of walked back with his tail between his legs. So maybe that was why they didn't want to publicize that one as big as a new OC hire, but I think that they're going to take their time with this. I'm sure they already have a short list drafted up knowing that McDaniels was interviewing in the first place and was interested in the first place. So I don't think this took them by surprise. But maybe by I don't know, maybe by the combine, we know who they're OC is. I don't think it's going to happen super quick. Do you think it's going to be like instant or I think so I think the longer it takes the higher chance it is as O'Brien. Because I don't think anybody else is calling Bill O'Brien, you know, if it's a guy like shadow shae, if they're gonna go, you know, like a Joe Brady rat, right? I think there's maybe a rush to get that guy because there might be other calls for his services. I think with Bill O'Brien, he's either coming to the Patriots or he's staying in Alabama. So they can take their time with that one. So the longer we go in my mind, the greater the chance it's Bill O'Brien. Agreed. All right.

"And you have to respect the guy and what he did here for the Patriots. And now we can look forward and start to move on here. And look for maybe some new flavor and some new spice. But I think we're both in unison that Bill O'Brien just makes all the sense in the world and it's kind of that doesn't need to be overly complicated with where they go at this higher. Yeah. Yeah, I would agree with that. It's like the Mac Jones draft pick. Is it the most mind-blowing thing? No, it's called occam's razor. Sometimes the most obvious answer is the correct most of the time. The most obvious answers to correct answer. Yeah, the last thing I'll say about this, what I think is interesting is not that no Belichick is not slowing down anytime soon. And I think a big part of the reason why Josh McDaniels is leaving is because it doesn't sound like Belichick's retirement is any sort of intermittent. All right, so this could be 5 years. It could be ten years. I don't think that anybody truly knows when Belichick is going to hang it up. But now that Belichick is alone, essentially, without McDaniels, without Brian Flores, mat Patricia is back in the building, but I don't think anybody actually wants Matt Patricia to be the next head coach of the Patriots. I guess you could have a conversation about jarad Mayo. But that is an interesting angle that the presumptive head coach and waiting if Bill Belichick decided woke up this time next year on a Sunday morning and said, you know what? I'm done. I don't want to do this anymore. Josh McDaniels was more than likely the guy that was going to get that nod. Now he is going to the Raiders. So there is a little bit uncertainty there of a succession plan if Bill Belichick ends up having a shorter lease than we all expect in terms of his life expectancy as the head coach. Yeah. Yeah, sorry, yeah. I don't know if we're trying to get off before the game starts. Oh no, no, no. You can give it to me. Go ahead. Yeah, no, I think it is like you said I think it is an indication that Bill is going to stick around and I think you look at Mayo. You look at all these guys on the staff and who is the next, you know, they're for the first time in a while who is the next guy we don't know. We don't know. And you know maybe that's a draw for somebody like Flores to come back. We've talked about when he come back if he's not officially the D.C..

"That side and look, maybe McDaniels takes somebody from the defensive side of the ball. I just. It should be Kevin fuck. Absolutely should be Kevin Fox. I know it's maybe not fair to sincerity, but he's the better option. Okay, last thing here, how would you view the end or how would you view the Josh McDaniels ten year in New England? Because we don't really know for you. We've talked about this a lot. We've gone back and forth on it. I'm probably swayed a little bit more back and forth on it than you. I feel like you've always been a Josh McDaniels truther and the fact that maybe he's not all that he's cracked up to be in terms of the hype around Josh McDaniels. I've always been a pro McDaniels guy. I've came back over to the other side, the dark side of it a little bit more this season. But what is your legacy for Josh McDaniels? Will you remember him as well, I think he always been here for pretty much every Super Bowl, but as the officer coordinator, he was the offensive coordinator for three Super Bowl championships, a 5 appearances or four appearances. Well, you remember him as that guy or you remember him as somebody that without Brady was in exactly the sauce, right? It wasn't exactly the cure all here. I don't think people realize how woven into the fabric of the Patriots Josh McDaniels is. Yeah. There's not that many people who have rings from all 6 super bowls. And he's one of them. He's been here since 2001. Obviously, there's that little break in the middle, but he was a big part of it. Like him or not, he was a big part of it. And I think that's ultimately his legacy here is that he was as much, you know, I don't want to say it now. Ernie Adams was bill's right hand man..
"mcdaniels" Discussed on Patriots Beat
"That could get very interesting. Yeah. That's an interesting point. I don't know how much you really set your board yet. I think you do a lot of fall scouting and you have an initial idea of guys that you're going to look at. The senior bowl is next week. That's obviously a big, big thing for the Patriots with the draft process. So I don't think the final board doesn't usually get set until after free agency because you also don't know what free agent moves you're going to make and where you're going to fill holes in that respect either. So ultimately, I'm not too concerned with that because I do think that they are still ways away from finalizing that board. But yeah, they'll definitely be going for similar players in Vegas as the Patriots, right? They're going to try to build a similar scheme. Do you think that Josh McDaniels will take anybody with him from the Patriots current staff? Because I think this is another angle that we should touch on here that potential of draw Mayo. Maybe being the defensive coordinator there or your power just go out? No, the sun is coming in extremely bright and I will get up in a second to close the blind. Draw Mayo defensive coordinator, Nick Caylee is a John Carroll university guy. These two were John Carroll university guys and ziegler and McDaniels. They could pull from that coaching ranks as well to give a nickel some more responsibility in Vegas. What do you think about who they might take with them as I go and shut this blind? Well, we know about the relationship, Belgian statement of talked about this. They talked about it in the HBO documentary that you don't take guys for lateral moves. You know, you don't basically you don't blow up the ship as you're getting off. So I think, you know, I look at Kaley, basically the guy's Kaylee Lombardi, who reviewed his.
"mcdaniels" Discussed on Patriots Beat
"I would say more so than anything. They love to run pre snap motion. The one thing that I love about what Alabama does and this does help when you have jaylen waddle and Jameson Williams and John matthey and you have these fast receivers. But what I like about Alabama does is they throw the ball to guys in motion that are already moving. So you can hit you can get the ball into these players hands when they're already going nearly at full speed. And that is, I think, a really nice wrinkle at the Patriots haven't done a ton of where you get a guy already rolling and then you toss the ball out to him and the flat, you give him some lead blockers and watch him go with it. There's some RPO concepts that obviously I hope that he would bring that Mac Jones farewell and then there was also some things with bunch formation stack alignments that I really like. They gave Georgia in particular, especially in the SEC title game. All sorts of fits with bunch three receiver bunch formations and attacking rules add a bunch sets. I think those are things that the Patriots would like to do as well, moving forward, and we've seen Josh McDaniels in the Patriots do at times here. So I think there are elements of Bill O'Brien's scheme, which really is a hybrid of the Patriots offense and is spread offense, right? And he's combined both of those concepts into one. And I think that was a big reason why he was successful in the beginning with deshaun Watson and why he was able to coordinate last year pretty well at Alabama almost to a national championship. So I like a lot of those things. I do think that O'Brien element of it though that you do have to consider is a little bit what we talked about with Mac last year is it's pretty easy to coordinate an offense with Jameson Williams and Bryce young and John mechie and the stable of just incredible talent that Alabama has, right? I mean, it's pretty hard to mess that up. So when you come to the league, things are a little bit more equal. I don't know how much that is going to be a factor. I like O'Brien. Well, here's the thing. If you want a guy, if you want them to draft, John met you, Jameson Williams. Right. I mean, O'Brien's probably gonna push for that, right? And then you probably have, at least with match, you probably have Mac pushing for it. So if you really want them to go the all out Alabama route and take John mechan in the second round, take Brian Robinson in the fourth round. Then you want O'Brien here then you're kind of stuck on that one. Yeah, I like O'Brien a lot. I think that it makes so much sense because he has adapted the patriot scheme. Now, a lot of the reason why he adapted this scheme because he started adapting it here in New England and from 20 2009 to 2012 before he went to Penn State..
"mcdaniels" Discussed on Patriots Beat
"Yeah, so you're talking overall, not just the draft. You're talking overall to the needs. Yes. Just as a baseline here. 50, 5th biggest need and I think I did this last year breaking it down the way I believe they break it down. There's like 18 positions, right? That they're going to consider. So last year, really, after quarterback, four through 7 four through sorry, two through 7, two through 8, we're all kind of interchangeable in terms of like big premier needs. This year we're in the top 5 and you're starting the top 5 off with, it's not that much of a need. So let's just use that as a way because everybody's talking about how this whole roster needs to be redone. No. Last year needed to be redone. I just want to use kind of how you set that up as an example of how far this team has come in the last ten months. Right. So D line was number 5 for me. I think we're in agreement there that I'm just gonna let you give yours, and then I'll give mine. I want to see you. No comments on each position, individually. Number four, I have linebackers currently. And I know this is probably a lot lower than people want to hear linebackers. B, but I think it's for a couple of different reasons, but mainly the number one reason is I look at the draft landscape, but I look at the free agent landscape and I'm just not loving any of the top options for the Patriots on either spot. So rather than reacher overspend or use a first round pick on a player that I'm not comfortable with in the first round for New England, I would rather use this as a year to maybe address linebacker as a secondary need right on day two or early day three of the draft or pay a free agent that's maybe flying a little bit under the radar like a guy like Devon Andre Campbell or maybe you take a chance on somebody like latent van der ash, right? And you try to maximize a failed first round pick. They've done that so many times in the past. So that's what I would look at. And we do have some breaking news here. So maybe we should go there first. Back to the questions, Alex. I read that wrong. Not as much of a while, but wow. But still a little bit of a wow. We talked about this here a few minutes ago. We were at least a little bit wrong about it. And that is the Raiders have officially requested a head coaching interview with patriots offensive coordinator. Josh McDaniels, according to Adam Schefter, McDaniels is now officially interviewing for the raider's job. So this is now no longer smoke. This is fire, right? He is officially getting interviewed by the Raiders for that GM. That coaching job, ziegler still in play there as the GM. So this might be coming together in Vegas for Josh McDaniels, but nothing official yet, of course, in terms of the hiring process, but McDaniels officially interviewing with the Raiders two things that we could kind of take this first year reaction to that Alex and then second, I guess we can talk about some potential replacements..

"A little bit. I think people are still, you know, they're very cautious about Josh and I'm sure they will get things in writing very early on the colts never got things in writing. You know, and look, a lot of it was not and he'll have he knows he has to have explanations for all this stuff because that in Denver to the top things that he's going to be asked about. And he needs to have good answers to those questions. And, you know, the first with the, with the colts, you know, what ended up happening as far as I know is that, you know, and this is something that I'm going to write for BSA at some point. And a lot of this is bill's fault. You know, he and God love Bill and I understand and it's good for the Patriots. But like, you know, it's not all about the Patriots when you have people working for you. You know, he can be singularly focused, but you know, you could take a couple hours to have a conversation with Josh McDaniels before the end of the season. And it should happen very soon. Like he could have had it during the bi week. Let Josh know exactly where you stand and how long does it look like you're going to coach. The problem the first time around is Bill so singularly focused that Josh did not talk to Belichick. Can't be bothered about his future until the season was until he already agreed with the colts. Suddenly the season end, he's getting ready to go on a plane, suddenly bills like Josh, I'd like to talk to you. And then he comes in and he hears all this great stuff from Bill about Josh, you know, you're such a valuable piece here. You know, I couldn't do a lot of this without you to look. I don't know what was said. I'm just making things up. But you know, there's a lot of things I couldn't do here without you. You're basically the head coach in the offense. I want to give you this raise. I want you here. And suddenly, Josh is like, what? I've never heard any of this stuff. Your wife has her. Yeah, your wife has her bags packed and she's at the door and you tell her you love her and you know, for the first time, you know, it's like, exactly, you can't wait that long. But again, you don't know also, are there assurances in place? That's the last thing, is there is there a, okay, I don't know if it's two years, but it's a three to 5 year window. And as soon as that's done, we don't even interview another guy. It's yours, buddy. And if that's in place, that would be a different story as well. But you don't know if that, if anything like that was ever agreed upon or discussed, as far as I know, it has not been, I do think part of the equation is I don't know if McDaniels or a lot of people want to be the guy that replaces the bill. Follow bill because you're basically.

I mean, the best coverage that you can possibly get on this team with Greg, you talk about video analysis, coaches film, direct access to him and weekly chats. Greg, what is the question for today? So speaking of weekly chats, I went straight into, so I posted every Friday or Saturday it depends on what's going on. I do a Q&A. People go into the comments, leave questions. I just put it up earlier. This is coming straight out. The members get this. Every single week throughout the year. So ML eagle 5 8 8 asks, do you find that McDaniels is a bit conservative in the red zone historically? I feel like even with Brady, there would be many instances where he'd run on first and second down, perhaps some off. It seems like he's often trying to avoid turnovers when they get down there. I don't really notice it all that much. I mean, I think people might have cam on the brain a little bit from last year and what went on early in the season with, you know, they got down to Seattle down on the goal line, the QB powers, things like that. I think we just before we get into all that, I think we just need to give them time. I mean, you gotta remember. I mean, it had a rookie quarterback, you know, who's not exactly mister improv on the fly, you know, outrun anybody. So I'm sure for the first game he was a little bit conservative, but a lot of times what people have to keep in mind is that this scheme, you know, when they go to the line and you will see the quarterback alert point to his helmet, there are often two plays two or three plays within a one play call with the Patriots. And if you see them go alert and then they run, that means that it was a.

Is Mac Jones a Good Fit For the Patriots?
"But at some point in time whenever Mac Jones is ready, he is going to be able to operate the full facilities of the Patriots offense, which Cam Newton was never able to do last year, I don't care what was around him. Mac Jones is one of the most advanced. I didn't get a chance to ask Bill. This question in the press conference. I wanted to But Mac Jones is probably the most advanced college quarterback in terms of pre-snap checks reads, all this stuff. All the mental song that goes on at the line of scrimmage I have not seen or heard of a quarterback as advanced at Mac Jones in terms of what his level of experience is. And I think that it's just citing to me. It's probably exciting to Josh McDaniels. It's probably exciting to the Patriots that eventually at some point in time. Mac Jones is going to be able to do a lot of the stuff at the line Shack on. Brady could do. I'm not saying everything. I'm not saying that he is Tom Brady, but just to be able to say, all right, we see this defense, we're going to check out of this, this guy is Advanced Beyond almost all college quarterbacks you. You talk to people around the Alabama program, and they talk about how smart he is. They talk about how he's been teaching the Alabama offense, to Bill, O'Brien wage, Down there, so right? Just in terms of all that, that's a great basis and it's something that the Patriots lacked, whether it was Cam Newton or Jerry students. Did them coming from the Baylor offense home and the Auburn offense, Mac Jones can do everything that the Patriots need to have done at the line of scrimmage and that is a huge key component in this offense and they got a guy who can do that.
Jimmy Garoppolo Is Reportedly ‘Plan A’ For Patriots At Quarterback
"So much has been made about the potential of a reunion between jimmy g. and bill be in new england. The forty nine. A quarterback is under contract for two more seasons but new england needs a quarterback and they may look to trade for garappolo that is according to a very interesting piece. That are mike. Reese put together over the weekend who covers the patriots for so well and he gets up with us earlier today. Mike for those who did not read. It gives us a sense of your thinking on the possibilities. Here of jimmy g. Coming back to foxborough so good morning green. I would say as a reporter covering the team there so much secrecy around the patriots quarterback plans so i was asking myself the question. What do i know for fact and for fact. What i know is that the patriots bill. Belichick he holds jimmy garoppolo in such high regard. And it's one thing for me to say it. But i could actually show it to you. I mean there was a picture after the forty niners handed the patriots their worst home loss in two decades under bill belichick. We're bill belichick. Steve on the field to talk with jimmy garoppolo and josh mcdaniels. The offensive coordinator was standing nearby for his. Turn to talk to jimmy garoppolo. So the point. Is this screening. If the patriots believe jimmy garoppolo is their plan a and the big gap to plan b. Now is the time for them to at least test. The forty niners commitment to jimmy g. and so then. That begets the obvious next question which is if they do decide to your point that that's what they wanna do. How do they get it done. Well got to give credit to michael lombardi. The longtime nfl front office man who was here with the patriots when the patriots drafted garoppolo in two thousand and fourteen on his podcast. The gm shuffle. He said how about sam darnold going from the jets to the forty niners who in turn with then trade jimmy garoppolo in a situation controlled by garoppolo. 'cause he has a no trade clause and you saw the respect. There was mutual between the patriots and garoppolo. Well you'd think jimmy might like the idea of a homecoming in that scenario greenie. That could work for everyone. The forty niners would pick up a lot of cap space in that exchange. The patriots would get their quarterback through they respect so much in the jets. Your jets would probably take a quarterback at number two which might be their preference anyway.

New England Patriots Press Pass
McDaniels' RPO Gameplan Starts To Bear Fruit
"I think what we're seeing and I wrote about this just now is just we need to embrace this offense in what it is is that it's a run Centric offense and I think what we were seeing at a Josh McDaniels in particular he deserves a lot of credit for scheming it up in the running game. We've talked a lot about the last couple of weeks defense is playing eight guys in the box with low safeties and kind of King on that run game. So what did McDaniels do this week? You realize that they needed to come up with ways to even the numbers back up. And so he used option runs to use the Wildcat formation a couple of times. He was able to get situations where the page we're seeing an eight-man box. But because of cams legs they were able to even up the numbers with him it being a focal point of the running game. So they also what I thought was really smart as they watched the tape of that Buffalo game and off Joey Bosa just absolutely dominate the game three sacks, right quarterback pressures and get three tackles-for-loss in the Run game on top of all that forced a fumble. So they made him the read defender on all those awful plays. So he's just sitting there trying to read out Cam Newton and instead of getting up the field and blowing them off the ball. He was kind of left in no man's land trying to defend the option place. So really smart kind of wrinkles nearby McDaniels to put both in Conflict throughout the entire game. And then the last one that I kind of went over in that post was the RPO package with the two running backs, which was just really awesome job. Sony Michelle and Damien Harris on the field at the same time and the Patriots are running rpos RPO bubble screens mostly where they have a trap run on the inside and then a bubble screen on the outside and I was just reading that overhang Defender to the weak side of the formation and he's able to kind of decipher. Should I hand it off or throw it out there? They haven't thrown it out there that the screen yet. I'm waiting for them to get that looked to be able to do that. But I just think it's really cool to see how McDaniels is saying. Okay. This is what we are right. We're not going to be this prolific downfield passing attack, especially with the way the cams throwing the ball right now. So I need to scheme it up. I need to figure out ways to make sure that this running game can still go and that's exactly what they were able to do.
Should the Patriots replace Cam Newton with Jarrett Stidham?
"Think this is where we need to start because it's where everybody is starting when we talk about the Patriots and where we're at with Cam Newton right now in terms of the Patriots quarterback of the here-and-now home and also maybe even looking Beyond here and now to the 2021 season even and here in New England you turn on Boston sports radio, and I'm not trying to pick on those guys, but there are definitely talking a lot about Jarrett Stidham and the possibility of benching Cam Newton for Jarrett Stidham. I think they're crazy. But that that's a topic for another day. Mostly I want to focus on what are your opinions right knee about how cam is playing and how he can obviously improve from objectively. What was a very bad game on Sunday against the Cardinals whether you're a chemist and or a cam hater. Yeah, and it wasn't dead. A game against Arizona and Arizona. First of all, I think you have to remember that Arizona's defense is a lot different than Houston's defense. It's a lot different than Seattle's defense back in week to that Houston game. That's you know game those were two games with Jim actually got the passing game going and you felt hey maybe they could put together a passing game that could actually be effective Arizona see on their athletic. They fly all over the place Isaiah Simmons budda Baker. Like they have guys that can play they have some different things and they certainly they were putting an egg nine guys in the box of times. I'm sure having you saw that as well. I know you have from some of the work you've done they were basically dare in New England like go ahead. S game by throwing the football and it looked like they couldn't, you know, they got a couple breaks at the end with a missed field-goal and Isaiah Simmons penalty then put them in position to win, but they didn't win that game because of the passing game, but you know, that often said, I think we all have to sort of take a step back and realize a couple of things one. You mentioned I studied quarterbacks. Each week at USA Today. I have to do what we call a QB camp where I put up five of my quarterback videos of the most notable quarterback performances. There are some weeks friends. It's hard to find five good quarterback package, which is league-wide It's just tough. This is one of those weeks like you might get Baker Mayfield than that because there's just not great quarterback players Patriots fans were spoiled from two decades of Tom Brady where we took the best at the quarterback position weekend and week out but then when you take a step back and you don't have that and you see guys like, you know, Derek Carr and his high variance play or Baker Mayfield in his high variance player. Look at Carson waves, I mean talk about somebody that's regressed. He's regressed all the way back to his senior year at North Dakota State quarterback plays tough. And right now we have a quarterback. That's high variance. Well, that's one thing. I think we need to remember the other is this he came in late in a strange year in the midst of a pandemic with no training camp more minimal training camp. No minicamps. No OTAs, no prestige. James be tough complicated offense to run that has so many different moving parts. You've read The Playbook, you know, Evan every road has like six different variations. I'm trying to do is hard. There are some play books that are easy. It's like oh, yes, this makes sense Bruce Arians Playbook. It's kind of easy. Nothing really changes Josh McDaniels doing the Patriots Playbook. It's like quantum physics for me. Like I I can't figure it out. And so to try to do that in the midst of all this is difficult. So with that context, I think you know, if you want to get into the home Jared versus cam debate. I don't really think there is one because as you pointed out this week on Twitter Bill Belichick has seen Jarrett Stidham now for almost two years. He's seen him every day in practice if Jake was going to be the answer to what fixed to what else is Patriots passing game. Yes, he would play him but he's not so that tells you what you need to know about Jackson them. I was on Jarrett Stidham home. Right before they signed Camp. I remember I wrote the peace and said look Jack said it was a planet quarterback everybody and I'm so glad I snuck in at the ad. Well, look if they could get can do it for cheap short not be great. But Jarod said it was a planet like two weeks later. I signed Cam Newton Cam right now gives them the best chance to win games. Is it through the passing game most weeks? Probably not, you know this week might be a get right opportunity. But if I you know, if for the 2021 season, I still think canvas done enough to earn the chance to win this job with a full complement of training camp preseason, all that stuff of the engine needs to get better at Short of the mechanics break. Absolutely not do they matter. Sometimes they actually do but right now he's the best shot they've got week in and week out to win games.

Boston - Cam Newton Says Fit With Patriots Is ‘A Match Made In Heaven’
"Quick Art quarterback Cam Newton called his fit with the New England patriots a match made in heaven saying that on the Greg Hill show on w. e. in Boston this morning you tend to agree, I. Do I think being able to rebrand self with a ill football savant like bill belichick like Josh mcdaniels will put him. Situations where their team won't beat themselves and allow them to do what he does well, and not put them in situations when he doesn't really well, you know anytime, you can do that with your Kobe perset and be able to show the flexibility. I believe that the Patriots been waiting for an opportunity to ask new wrinkles to that offense of system that has the added ability to grow under. Tom Brady for like twenty seventeen years. I. Don't Know How long you've been at least twenty years seemed like it's been forever man but it's between love and hate he love you today while you cheat. So you ask for that money let's see how they love you
Cam Gets Signed
"Well there was big news coming last night. Courtesy of our Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen former MVP cam. Newton is a free agent. No more instead Newton is heading to new. England to join forces with bill, Belichick and follow in the footsteps of another MVP Tom Brady. And Cam Newton's cryptic fashion. He had this to say the instagram. I'm excited because I know what right now all praise to God dropping contact tomorrow. I hope you're ready Hashtag. Let's go pat. And so now we know, and we'll start with Adam Schefter, and our health hall of Famer. Steve Young One one. Just tell us how we got here. How did this deal get done? Listen I think it took Cam Newton a little bit of time to recognize that there was not a thirty plus million dollar a year job on the market when you released two weeks into the free agent signing period not only that there's not an obvious starting job that's out there, and so the longer this went on, and the less he heard from teams, and there really was nobody that he heard from the more he recognized that he had to find the right spot. And if you're going to find the right spot, there's nothing wrong with taking new. England Riga tour with Bill Belichick and Josh mcdaniels, and the new quarterbacks coach Jed fish in an offense. That obviously is going. Going to be trying to replace Tom Brady where you're competing with the guy like Jarret, Stidham hasn't proven that he can play yet in the NFL and so cam. Newton goes to New England on a one year deal where he gets to reestablishes value show that he's healthy, and over the shoulder and foot injuries that he has been dealing with the last two years, and this is the the place that he now tries to relaunch his NFL career at the age of thirty one, which should be most quarterbacks, the prime of their career, no question and Adam. How likely is it that this is in effect? A one year auditioned for Cam to be with the Patriots beyond this season. Wendy what I would say is this if Cam Newton plays well, the Patriots obviously would be interested in resigning him, and if not, they have the ability to move on from him. It depends on how the year goes. It's difficult to forecast that right now. All we know is that the Patriots signed a former. Most Valuable Player who won that award in two thousand fifteen, who has tremendous ability who goes into this offense, and now we'll have to learn it, which is not going to be an easy task in a shortened off season for put as the ability to be dominant quarterback. If he can pick up that system if he plays that way, you would think that no one would not let him out. Out, the door, but again there's a whole year. They WANNA see Newton. They WANNA see them. They want to see a year goes to. It's truly to say that just yet well. Yeah, I mean a lot can happen in a year. We've all we've all seen that in Steve. How do you like the fit between cam? Newton and what he brings on the field and the New England patriots. When healthy. Rusted Cam Newton mean it's like. Manna from heaven right I mean in many ways I, think Josh, mcdaniel and Bill Belichick sitting around a lot of times. Saying. Could you imagine what we could do with this guy or that? Guys? They play these players. Run the League, and they see them in places where I'm sure they say because they're supreme of conference. Not Hubris just supreme confidence that if we could get a hold of him what we could do with him, and we can really expend on what you're seeing around the league. What we can do is special, and so I'm sure they're saying this about. If Cam comes in his foot is okay. Because we know the arm is all right, we should. We saw that early last year before. So. We know that he's healthy. If his what is good and he can move, you've got. Hungry. Sophisticated and the type caliber Blair in New England, where you have bill and Josh saying you can't imagine what we're GonNa, do with this kid and so I think that's I. think that's the conversation. That's happening right now. New England, Steve. Look it's anybody's guess at this point, but you. You have an opinion very qualified one. What do you believe the likelihood? Is that Cam Newton? Is the Patriots Starting Quarterback Week One? Again if healthy, if he can move around, I can't imagine them with his talent level, and what they think they can do them again. It becomes a you know it's a proof point for what they're out to show their out to show that we can do special things with special players, and so it's it becomes A. A right of passage to be in New England, and that we can take somebody, and we can show you amazing things that can be done and they've done that with flair after play after player so Cam Newton and healthy can move around. I. It's GonNa be, too. It's like a gravitational force when it's to special to be able to show what they can do with a great Cam Newton. Yeah,
