"But yeah like it's not like mclaren's the one. I'm probably surprised with an. I probably should have moved him down. Rankings a little bit because he was added to injury report on friday with a hamstring injury. It wasn't something that he'd been dealing with. It was a new injury. And that's always a little more concerning though. I don't think his role was a much smaller than normal in that game. Yeah you don't know you never know if it was just a coincidence or what. I tend to ignore injuries with those guys play basically and if the studs play you know and you know unfortunately he got burned with mike williams and mclaren all right. It's time for our five big topics and for jacob gibbs to hop on. Hopefully he'll be on Joining us soon. I know he wants to talk about michael thomas. He's very excited to talk about the saints offense. So we'll save that until he gets on the show and let's go with topic number two i and that was from e-money eight one. Nine one are chubu hubbard and josh jacobs. Trustable juba hubbard and josh jacobs. Both started in seventy two to seventy six percent of leagues hubbard. Only had one catch. But he had sixteen carries sixty five total yards and a touchdown Jacobs only had one catch but he had sixteen carries an told her yards more total yards. Eighty four eighty to twenty nine. Came on that one catch right. He had sixteen fifty three and a touchdown. And yeah. do you think cuba hubbard obviously with mccaffrey. Out and jacobs are trustable going forward. I don't know what the word trust means. Adam in within this context..

Obviously you have a bit of a shelf. Life on shubra hubbard. We hope anyway. But can you trust him in the meantime and what about josh jacobs. We'll talk about the quarterback position on the whole second half breakouts and hopefully if we have time. The chicago bears backfield. Well chris last. Monday night was so incredibly fun that ravens the colts game the overtime thriller the wins and the losses. What fa what fantasy. Football's about so. I hope we get it tonight but just in case we don't. Let's pretend that sunday was great to write overtime. Alex colin yeah deontay johnson. That was a game came happened. What did you think of it. Well let me ask you this decay. Metcalf chase klay. Pool and tyler lockett. How much faith do you have in them. Going forward facing a word. I think you should use in this context. Faith has positive connotations. Look i i think you probably i think you probably start mcafee. Probably start klay pull moving forward but this is you know we talked about it. I think i think it was on sunday. Show before or maybe thursday when we weren't sure if tyreek hill was gonna play and we talked about how many call hartman wouldn't necessarily just step into a bigger role klay polls and a little different situation because he was mostly only playing three wide receiver sets so when the steelers went to two wide receivers. He was typically off the field before. Juju smith schuster's injury. That'll be different moving forward..

New Orleans Saints Have Eight Members of Organization Test Positive for COVID-19

"This saints. Coaching steptoe. What what's the latest. What is it eight members of the saints organization test positive. So what's the protocol. What are they gotta go through through the next few days or weeks. Yes so It is as of right now. Almost exclusively saints coaches not exclusively. Because there's one player. Michael thomas to starve receiver. But he's not an active player. So i'm doesn't necessarily affect them on the field but it is Six assistant coaches a nutritionist. On michael thomas. I believe so. You know it's it's interesting. Because i think last year. If this happened there would be some. I would say panic or certainly some some real worry About what's going to happen to the saints. What does it mean. How's it going to derail their season but every coach on their staff vaccinated most of the players not all the most of the players are vaccinated. So you know they were at a point where it affects them because those coaches aren't going to be allowed to be in the building but the you know return to return to work is so much faster because they're fully vaccinated that it is possible that it might not even affect anything for sunday So you know we're gonna still monitor it but it's an it's an issue but i would say probably not maybe as much of an issue as it might have been lasting

"Their thoughts fill analyst gregg and is back with us. But i'm going to you. I chose should saints. Be frustrated with michael thomas. They will be a question sale. But i know that they will be because nfl in the nfl. You frustrated anytime anybody's hurt it. Don't matter it's yo fault he heard if you'd like training were negligent any hurt. They frustrated which you add that to the fact that you're one hundred million dollar guy and now they even more frustrated which you because now they have to sit there and watch a one hundred million dollars on a bench or worse it in. We have added that to the fact that the team does not have a hall of fame quarterback still at the hill. So you're hurt. You got one hundred million dollars and you hurt. And you are the quarterbacks best friend and you hurt terrible terrible terrible combination so yes they will be frustrated with michael thomas hard to speak on nuances. I actually side with michael. Thomas from what the reports of what i've heard. He got hurt playing meaningless minutes early on in last season. They try to rush him to come back. He does not want to come back and now he probably i would assume just based off deductive reasoning plan in the. Nfl y'all playing in the nfl if he had the surgery late it's probably because he had a second opinion. Y'all check me. If y'all think i'm wrong and i also doubt that the team doctors did it because team doctor would not have done the surgery this late if the team didn't want him to have the surgery this late and they would have known what was going on so in my mind. Michael thomas probably got a second opinion that contradicted the opinion of the team and thus he had the surgery as somebody. West live in my body after playing in a league saints. Don't care about michael thomas. Once he retires to a degree they do but he don't wanna got to walk on 'em knees and welcome ankles and walk on them hips. We saw what was it. Shannon sharpe on just had a hip replacement surgery two weeks ago last week like at the end of the day. The athlete has to live in the athlete's body. The athlete has to take care of himself so in all honesty. Iside with michael. Thomas having not known all of the details be frustrated simply. Because you know what you have in michael thomas. You were expecting to have the value that he provides to your team and specifically your offense in michael thomas and now they're left scrambling trying to fill his shoes because they don't know how long they will be without him so you know he's a tough player and i'm with you. I can understand why michael. Tom has done what he's done. Because we've all been a part of an organization. We know how the in house doctors are seeing. We know what we're taught to do. An in born to do in terms of getting a second opinion. But forgetting all of that. If you're michael. Thomas what you're doing by tweeting by talking back when you're not present is not doing you any justice. It's not benefiting you everybody not only just the new orleans saints know how. How great of a player. You are just let that three let that live and don't damage it by saying all these other things. We know that you've had a rift which are head coach okay. A lot of people have back and forth with management and employers. That's fine that's okay agree to disagree but understand your value to not only disorganization but to the guys that locker room drew brees is gone. You are the guy offensively you have to lead accordingly in that. I'm not telling him how to lead. But this is not how you do it for my. If you're micro thomas yeah people don't know when good is good enough man just sad because i can see both sides actually being right but this situation being wrong of this locker room was voided leadership because drew brees is retirement. We get that and they were looking at you michael. Tom is to be a leader. However of late they're not looking at judas same He missed games last year due ankle injury right then he also got suspended. Don't forget for one game after punching a teammate. there are misdemeanors. Nfl near felonies in terms of team issues. And that's felonious punching team-mate. We got some issues on this team in terms of leadership. Now help them. michael. Thomas help you. You agree to see a specialist esau specialist right after the season incorrect. Yes you did now. You talked about possibly rehabbing the injury and avoid surgery. I've been down this road. I've been misdiagnosed as well. Big dogs so don't think i'm up here acting all different however this is all happening in real time so he says let's give it a month or so and then come back and let's check if you feel better or not and then we'll decide if we need surgery and i always tell people when something wrong with you and you playing sports surgery like this whole rehab and d'oro and coming back man nursing thing this is real. Football is gonna hurt again so the specialist is sitting there waiting. Michael thomas to report and the return visit never happened to things can be true in this situation. He said i going back to specialist because he has a rehab properly. I'm gonna get my own second opinion autos way or what. The team may be thinking as well is the same dude who pushed his teammate. That miss games last year. That went to see a rehab specialist at agreed to go. Back is all sudden spasm out of control. O- now you'll go on social media a real issue would a liter of our. We're paying tremendous amounts of money to say that we ought to hurt your reputation and save hours. Okay okay that's a problem right here so right now we're at this impasse of who to believe but more importantly who's going to go forward in winning this perception. I'm here to tell you this. Michael thomas but it won't be you big dog. You gotta clean this. So let's get let's dive in here. We got minutes reminding extra to okay. The reason i love this from michael thomas in g. I think you've been in this situation sale. I think you've been in the situation. I know first hand a situation where an owner of a team in route to winning super bowl told their star player who was battling a calf injury. A team need this game. You know you need to go out there for your team. You know you just paid you a lot of money. He went out there and on the third play towards achilles onerous new non-forum a shake his hand to give them a pat on the back. He was not a part of that roster within a year later. He doesn't get to tell that story. The fan doesn't know that story the fans that we see. He goes injury-prone again. But the only reason he played in the game was because the general manager of the team told them before beforehand. Need you to tough. This went out. He was not trying to play on that prime time game but that story never gets told. Michael thomas is a. I'm not going to give you all the details. Necessarily at least not yet but what i will say is you all do not know the full truth so so in years past i think you would have been right and you still might actually be right. But i'm encouraged by michael thomas. We're saying you know what i'm gonna let y'all fans no there's more to it than meets the eye. Hopefully something changes here. But i'm just to let no is not everything that you believe last one with this. This is your remember where you'll have to remember him. Currently plays xavier howard. I think he's a cornerback. For the dolphins g correct me. If i'm wrong that led the league last year. He put out a tweet just two weeks ago. It was like kay fans. I just want to know. I want to be a part of this organization. But i would lead the nfl and interceptions last year. And i'm not even the highest paid cornerback on my team and it is by a large margin so i want a new contract and i just want to hear from me that i do want to be a part of this organization but the team has not even willing to negotiate. Well last i checked just a few days ago. They have now renegotiated or at least working on renegotiating. Sometimes that public truth in that public pressure allowing your voice to be heard leads to good things for the athletes. I'm not right. I'm not wrong. I'm trying to assess this. But michael. Thomas doesn't look like he's in the right. Matz went by without communication. Most went by when you agreed to see a specialist that you didn't go back to see again. You can't explain that away then just show one day say my ankles do a messed up months later and be like hey i gotta have surgery and miss some of the season. That is unprofessional. That's irresponsible if those are actual factual beats of this story. Every time. I read it every time. I look at it every time i hear report. That's all. I see her last year during the season week. One garbage time. Yeah they kept clear you you kept saying i could play. I'll play. i can't play they. You miss eight weeks. They you go to a specialist and you say what's up. Let's do this then. You don't return and then disappear come home there. And then he walked in the now. Be like taking yo side. Just don't understand. Today's athlete if they think lack of communication either miscommunication. No communication is going to get their message across. Oh book quoting sutton on social media is supposed to drive it home when your actions speak louder than your words and your posts coming up. Look trae young. Signed mega extensions this off season. We'll tell you who would we rather have for the next five years. that's next. don't speak for yourself young nba stars. Luca danni trae. Young extensions in recent days with the first player eligible super-maximum trait carried fifth-seeded all the way to the eastern conference finals. Moghal is locked in until twenty twenty seven but we all remember to drive day. Swap san luca the dallas to atlanta. So that was the racial train. Would you rather have doctors to throw you over. The next us. Kipah me to answer this question. I'm going to say luca. Because luca is like the kevin durant to me lucassie. Incredible incredible incredible unique talent. So gifted in that you can't choose against him however based on what we've read and based upon reports and based upon actions around him you have to wonder. Is luke too volatile to win with the people around him isn't gonna run. Is he going to force other people to run away right like come into rant. Russell westbrook had to run then. Kevin durant was withdrawn and k. d. had to run but kabc such unique talent if you make me draft. Obviously i'm always going to take. I'm not gonna let my emotions i'm gonna choose emotionally and not let my logic think about okay. What about the collection of team. I think trae young might be more conducive to team success just because it appears that he's easier to play with based upon reports but luca goodsell. Yeah it's one of those draft where you hope you're drafting number two. Because you make the decision i just take one. You know but there is a better one. It's luca danni which. I would just think looking at him as durability in terms of his body type is even though he wears down in the second half postseason games. We saw trae young already. Have some injuries misses some gangs. Vital games this year in the conference finals. That said luca is a monster. Magic bird had a baby. And it's like. Oh my god who is this dude. Who has this low altitude game that looks durable and it looks like you carry a team. The problem is does. This team won't be carried by him fireworks already. We're we're carla right now. Gone fireworks this. Ask porzingus about him fireworks right now. So i love the fact that you brought up young steph. You know he already bought in notion jumping from the free throw line. He got young ankles. Already broke down but luca. Shall i go luca right here. I'll like no young players already. Balding sat up to you track..

"michael thomas" Discussed on Speak For Yourself

"Led by a four in superstar a top ten player during the duration of his prime top five players at times and also won an nba mvp and dirk nowitzki. So if i've seen dirt do it. If i've seen dirt sustain while super teams came and super teams went if i've seen dirt last through the likes of the lakers with kobe. Shocker the heat which shocking d- way the lakers with koby empower the spurs with minute. Tim duncan and tony. Parker but dirk was just mr consistent than i am sure. I am certain that luca can do the same. Oh and my take very simply with this there's a reason slick rick. There's a reason marcellus wiley. That i've never win the lotto some say it's because i'm unlucky but i don't think so i'm not really kinda guy i would submit. That is because. I never bought a lot of tickets. And you can't win the lotto if you don't buy it kicking see. Luca buys a lotto ticket for the mavericks every single year and the lotto ticket to win. A chip is simply getting to the playoffs. You can't win a chip if you don't get to the play offs but by having luca on your team. He's given the mavericks a lotto ticket to get to the playoffs and get to the playoffs and get to the playoffs eventually. Especially if you have a superstar you'll crack. The code is what happened with dirt. They got to the playoffs. Loss to the spurs got to the playoffs lost two sons gotten to the playoffs. Lost to the warriors got to play to the playoffs. Got to the playoffs and eventually in two thousand eleven against all odds when the bron james had formed the super team one of the greatest super teams of this generation dirt crack the code. Why because he had a lot of ticket. Luca gives the mavericks a lotto ticket each and every year and as a result eventually the win the lotto or an nba title. That is an interesting take. I don't agree with it but it's interesting though. I am not particularly confident. That luca dot is going to lead the mavericks to a championship. One because when you make the reference to dirk nowitzki. That was ten years ago that he won that title and the league has dramatically changed since then if we look at the last five six years in terms of who is leading championship teams. They're all athletic freaks. There's jaanus there's lebron there's k. d. there's colli and for all that lucas is and he is an offensive maestro and skilled as any player in the game. He's not an athletic freak. And so it leaves me short in what he is able to do. Based on how the game is played now. The second part is how championship rosters are built. And when i look at these dallas mavericks. I don't see that wingmen that he needs. I don't send. I don't believe that you need big three. But you generally need to. And he doesn't have that one yet and how is he going to get it. Well nico harrison is the brand new. Gm doesn't have a championship pedigree doesn't have pedigree at all. I expect that nico will do well but is capable of building a championship roster. I have no idea. The second part is something from a conversation. I had with an agent just in the last twenty four hours about how teams are built. It used to that gm's constructed them and constructed them by talking to agents. Now it's players talking to other players. That's how these teams are being formed. And then the player who wants to go to particular team goes through his agent says get me there and the superstar in resident goes to the gm says. Give me that player. Well who's in. Luca dodges phone. Who is he going to reach out to and say. Hey let's get together. Let's make this happen. I don't know that he has the same wherewithal that some of these other guys have. And if it's a matter of drafting giannis in a. Chris middleton coming to join him then to your point. They're always going to be buying a playoff ticket. So how are they going to get that lotto ticket in terms of getting that wingman. That then takes them to the next step. That's why i have my reservations for as good as dodge's that he's actually going to be capable of taking the dallas mavericks. All the way to the top of the mountain. Great takes by both of you guys. I don't have an ounce of reservation. They will not win a championship as currently constructed or on the trajectory that they're heading ongoing to remind you guys. This team can't even get out the first round losing into the clippers. What do i say lowly clippers. Because that's all. I hear the team that we laugh at the most in terms of championship. Opportunity and aspiration is success. Are the los angeles clippers. They're laughing stock. They finally made it to the western alford's photos and this team can't even get past that team. So if you go eleven clippers about to lose my mind laughing at the dallas mavericks. Who can't even get past that hurdle. Let me also just remind you guys. I want to keep the energy going. That you look at luca and i love the fact that six who's in his own because reputation for sees you and i'm not certain if this is fact base but it's certainly a opinion based out there that maybe luke good a little too much of a firecracker for everybody to say let's go join up with luka case appoint kristaps zinc is supposed to be as boy how they look and right now case in point riccar supposed to be as coach hot looking right now. So there's something going on in terms of luca's reputation and a reception league-wide and slick pointed out the players are the ones driving these moves and these opportunities not upstairs. That's going to be interesting to look at. So maybe he won't be able to add to this team in part because of their reputation that precedes him. We don't believe you. Luca you need more people if you kristaps can't get along okay. So you're not going to be there together or if you are there together down the same page. You're not getting the most out of him certainly not gonna get into a situation where we're gonna look at the opponents because the path to this title that chill talks about is more difficult. Dennis ever been. The lakers are going to return to form a going to be healthy. Dave reloaded they got westbrook. Mellow laugh if you won't this was a team that was second in the nba in terms of record before to injury ad last year and they've reloaded books of the champions brooklyn. That's going to be healthy next year. Warriors going get klay back. Jazz had the best record signs had the second best record into finals. Seventy sixers had the best record and they underachieve they will return. They may get damian lillard. We'll see how that plays out. And my clippers come on man like this dude is amazing all to himself but in terms of team success and total team impact. We haven't seen one signed to give us any confidence fellas. Don't you think y'all are being a little too aggressive too quickly. Why do i say. Moluccas had more collective success than lebron james michael jordan jaanus right the greatest players of all time in john who's currently playing at an incredibly high level. He's had more collective success in them. Over the first reuse they all ended up winning multiple titles and their organization. Obviously jaanus as well michael multiple honest one. His lebron got his so. I just think that it's a little far fetched. It's a little hyperbolic to come out and say that luca can't lead the mavs to title. We're almost almost punishing punishing him for being too good to sue like nobody would have said that yawn is can lead the bucks to title as recently as three months ago as a couple weeks ago. If you will and so slick i'm just thinking jordan. Ten really great for him lena. Balls to a title. After the first two years. I think he lost one three first year. I think he got swept through the next year. Luca yeah. He's losing to the clippers but it didn't look great for bron- his first couple of years didn't make the playoffs then makes the playoffs then is third year. I think he loses in the conference. Semis so to discount luca. In his third season when he's actually played collectively at a higher level than the likes of jordan. Jaanus and lebron to me. I can't make that leap.

"Joe mcknight recipes and cj gable. Now here's the thing i noticed. The known sissy was a little kid. East running track team six years. These this is amazing. He says send me video of him. Playing pop warner when i was in the league and i used to check it out. Say do this do that. Sit back and we talk it up. We chop it up maze relationship. It never worked out for any one of those guys individually in terms of optimizing their talents. They all became names. They all got opportunities next level but they didn't really get it like they could have gotten it because there wasn't the trust factor you talk about leadership and practice time. How about trust coach. How about this. If you make a decision how are we supposed to. And then it's going to be based on this. See watch him move the goalposts look. I'm going to base it on what we're doing. What how they're doing but coach we are all in action sport. It's based on results and those results could be pre season. Those results could be practiced. But you know who's better like. I told my son this morning. There's no such thing as a top. There's no such thing as oh my god. We're exactly the same which one is better for your team. It allows us to simply say we're gonna go out there and dictate terms based on the decision you made for our leader and our leadership when that's not a part is game plan. What is this like. Oh he has a hot hand right now. he has the hot hand. What happens when they both have to code in. Think about what happens when one has the hot hand. And then the other one. I thought there was some equity some balance to this. Utah about dissension. Now we're gonna have a problem because as soon as the one that's supposed to be on top falls down us look at the other one. If he doesn't show up then we're going to be in this situation coats we have to now. We have none and thank you for not making that decision so the other reason i hate this is very much of what you said i hate. What kyle shanahan is trying to do with these two quarterbacks because it's like having a backup plan and whenever you have a backup plan you're not fully committed in my mind auto to do this to the starting safety but go ahead. I'm gonna let you talk to your boy super single. How web vera. I've thought if i get married. I probably wouldn't sign a prenup because boy i don't necessarily it gives me an out gives you a backup plan a bigger sanity. Man you star trip in you start acting up. Something goes down. Oh good but if not. You're more so forced to try. Try to work through your issues. Meanwhile buddies not hard to make. I will just try to find a way to make more having to quarterbacks as kind of like shanahan having a pre got a backup plan. Oh trae lance. He won a couple of picks. Don't worry i mean jimmy going. Oh jimmy a former open him snap. Don't worry a trade. The i'm over here. I'm free later in the third quarter because you got a backup plan of in my mind. It gives you an outlet in my mind you will more readily look towards the door as opposed to looking exactly at who you have to just finding a way to stick it out and working it out for the betterment of your boat i look. That was a leap. It calling that a backup plan. It was amazing. It was pretty also make you stay still though and they'll make you say still either it depends on what's motivating you obviously have. Money is your motivation in. Yeah yeah yeah. They're pre-nup is going to look different to you. Then no prenup. I'm going to get that on his show. Y'all gonna get out of i Sports takes on in case of failure. Here's our structure. That's what pre-nup it's supposed to be able to be all scared to lose your money and all that stuff etc. Here's the thing. I don't like about this. I go to practice. Who's our quarterback we don't know is both of them. I've been to a quarterback controversy before. Let me tell you one thing. It's not so much that we have an hourly rootin- interest because we were rooting for doug flutie versus rob johnson. Doug flutie most guys flew some guys. Rob johnson can discount that however that's not the population or the populations you need to be concerned with. Coach is the one who voice their opinion but like anything in life. You don't say you're live it if you don't say go active. That's what happens. You're going to displace sure aggression so then when you're frustrated and you can't beat the coach because he's indecisive and you can't speak to anybody else because you already divided then you start acting it out so case in point. I play d. line. I what office alignment or capable of. Also known as certain office alignment felt more comfortable with another quarterback. So i have protect like this. When i got jimmy and then i got trae running around in circles. Because he don't know what he's doing just yet protecting like this because this dude angle do without. Why am i gonna give all. He'll know where he and i'm only using their names. As example purposes it could flip. That's a bad way. Go even further there. And then i'm done I didn't even think about that point. We act different actor for me is not even so much. The acting different the playing different. I'll give it to my terms before. I flip you play line. Bet i played linebacker. That means i am backing you. The defensive lineman put it in layman's terms. I know how marcellus wiley likes to run his stunts. I know how quickly marcellus wiley if he is lined up in six technique. But how do you put that in. Layman's terms so you vinyl outside the lined up outside the marcellus wiley has to make a stunt inside of the tight end or he stunt inside of the offense tackle. I know how fast going to do. So azima result. I know my timing in my head blitz. one is not sell now when issa's backup. Oh he takes a little longer to news. Until now i'm running back and the blitz isn't going to hit us hard hit 'cause i'm not familiar with the person i'm playing with saying that because left tackles right guards right. Tackle centres left guards. They kind of know. Okay trae lance. He's got drift in a pocket Jimmy g. he's going to sit in the parking trae lands when this pressure. He's got spin enroll out left Jimmy d when there's pressure he's going to step up right so now. When you play in quarterbacks you just caused all your offense of mine men to have to think another step forward is how they're going to pass pro. How gonna pass it. Okay where we got trae lands out there so he's gonna hold onto the ball a little bit longer. That's a whole 'nother level. I even think of all sit whilst they go sixteen choline. Vp's crazy. I'm here and sign a pre-nup in route. Oh coming up. Speed up a pre-nup luke dots has got the bag.

"That you were highest paid you can do the least amount of work. Thank god you are co host. God's you're an analyst. Thank god you are in media and not ownership. Because i would never want to play for your team because boy if you think that way you gotta pay all of us so we can all be happy being you gotta know what it is first of all. No one cares about those things. You're talking about what you mean. Let what people only care about what you're doing when you're not doing which is supposed to supposed to be doing a preseason dak prescott and got paid date day they weren't even thinking about brady's play the preseason great brady and they need him to in a precede because they need to know to honeymoon hoopoe in life. No no this is not how it works in life. First of all life you keep dissension only broke. People count other people's pockets in comparison to rich people. Rich people don't care because they got it. Wow i got. I got my you are talking about a broke mentality. If the cowboys already broken dongo win nothing so it doesn't matter. I'm not going to cater to the eagles of broken souls. I'm going to talk about how we go live in high society where i don't care what you got 'cause i got my dak prescott. Got his tongue with adrian on deck until he realizes deck and good and last time i checked. He's never been able to say that saw should i. He's going to be able to say that it's not about infighting it's about human capital which is like. Look i'm good dude. A great leader when you need me. I'm there not when you want me is when you need me as i can call nine one one. Don't call me when you want something. Call me when you need something. I'm not showing up all the time. I'm sure that when you need me most and that's been dak prescott. I remember when they had the game against the rams out here in the playoffs. And everybody was saying how zeke was going to lead to charge and dak was just an afterthought dot play. Better than zeke. Zeke has twenty carriage forty seven yards it went under reporter because they lost a game and everybody was like what happened with the cowboys that was one of their best chances of events in the playoffs since decks been. They're point being that ashes the bill when he's called upon. But we're not about to hype up. Sissy got paid. It says other quarterbacks and coaches say you need to play that it's going to be at your risk that we going to insert you in a preseason get. I don't know how many preseason games i've played in. I think it's a necessary evil. If you asked me. I would never want to play. But i understand. I need to get nicked up. I needed to get bruised up. I needed to know what the speed felt like. Even though it's going to accelerate going forward but to look at that prescott who's already at risk because of injury of last year and a slight risk because injury in this year. You're going to throw them out there to the war when you need them right now. That's kind of senseless. So i was trying to be cordial you were. Oh you got a real example trying to be real storytime hurt. So i don't really fly-killing fell wounded. Dax not good enough to miss a preseason. I was sitting here trying to you know have intellectual conversation second. Why is eight player ever is not good enough who is monetary value does not dictate talent. Yes it does to an owner. He does because. That's my investment to the allen may dictate worth dictate calling the shots in dallas. There's a difference between talent and world care about your definition. Is he playing. Because he ain't getting hurt because he costs you're talking i'm talking to t. Hey that's one thing i want to say. He's worth too much to play in a pre season. I would concede that forty nine hundred yards. Thirty touchdowns is not talent saying. He's not enough. Here's my thing. Let me hear if russell wilson complain. The preseason which he does. If patrick mahomes complain the season which he does If tom brady. Complainers are easy. Then lamar jackson if everybody better than dak prescott. Complain a the standard then. Prescott is not good enough the standards. What the standard is this way. I've seen a method to winning super bowls. Maybe it is coincidence. Maybe it is not com. Brady won the super bowl last year. And he played in the preseason. All the quarterbacks before who won super bowls have played in the preseason that might not even be the factor it might not be indicative on. But here's what i do know. Wh if it's good enough for tom brady guess what dak prescott is good enough for you well. What about the standard. Tom brady's missed four of the last five. Ota's was reported again because he always went and super bowl. But if that's the standard. Tom brady missed. Ot h. why cannot wouldn't be pre not only making them boys go out there and week one because he know he had the honeymoon here. They were throwing trophies drunk naked all on the boats he was like look we go. Let's all know. This is a real football season in front of us. We all go play. Who smith didn't even miss every priest game from what i've heard of conversation than what he didn't miss every premium. Nobody misses every. That's what we talking about. Hold on this harsh about injury. Nobody cares first of all. You know the one that we played the least in verbs or two four four. the forth forth played. I see we gotta understand this levels to this. Like i. I remember my first year me. I would have played every free season contract me after that sense because he got something to prove. Otto vince when you try to fight field job you've got gotta regime all say then. I'll only speak to the hall of famers in the hall of fame level players. I played with jason. Peters jason peters will be should be at least a first ballot hall of fame better but he don't get in that much. Jason peters played in the preseason regarding coming off the ice it he has for sure you know the last five years his career the most important to another one of course. He finds his job to a liberal. Find for that money. I'd say it's always a reason. The worst man. I never not even so if play in the preseason yes they can thrash can and should play in the preseason here. What did i just hear today. That the air rogers hall of famer is he played in the first preseason game probably not the point injured he just want to show up or not as show up all season like first of all. Let's just be real. This is uniform based on your team. Correct glove doesn't fit. All you know what i mean absolutely case so we're not going to go out here and say one fits all we look at this situation dallas. Do you have the second highest paid player. Ever he coming off a shoulder to though just wouldn't let them go out there and do it. Here's what doesn't make sense all right so now that we're paying back. The most amount of money now is when we're going to work him or utilize him or practice him the least hurt far in dak prescott football career. Thus far he worked harder on the football not worked hard. He put in more time on the football field. Then he has put in now. I won't say work hard because honestly rehabbing to get back is hard work but does foreign dak prescott football career. He has put in more time in the preseason. He has right now as a terrible terrible terrible standard to set too much money. now swing on play the preseason and we don't even practice that to shop on sundays we pan you all this money but don't even play a second third quarter just show up but we need to open the fourth. Don't even play in the fourth quarter to overtime show up then because you were too much money to have to ever play in life until latin doesn't count last your you are floyd mayweather throw a punch see if he fight back but somebody bigger to him beach. But that's the point like oh dog it ain't money time why you know why your voice is gone. You've been moonlighting no me you attract coach on the side. You know you ladies and gentlemen trayvon hills track coach. You know about the guy who ran the fastest time this year. And then what are you doing olympics. He wasn't ready for the moment because he used it all up when it didn't count. I'm sorry running. I seven seven when it don't cow but when it does count we need. Then you are going to max out someone who got the maximum amount.

"Time for stories to start your morning brought to you by ram trucks built to serve visa giddy ugly in new orleans. We already knew. The saints are upset with michael thomas waiting so long off season surgery now. A new report that the wide ignored calls from coaches and trainers four months. Also michael thomas not remaining silent. He's tweeted this morning. They tried to damage your reputation. You save there's by not telling your side of the story. How how does this thing play out. It's going to continue to not play out. Well i mean there's insults being exchanged at this point. And i'm not really sure what michael. Thomas was alluding to other than to an my humble estimation. Think that he's lobbying towards someone. Other than sean payton sean. Payton is upset frustrated. We could tell that inhering it in his conference. But i think it should be noted that i think he's upset because he wants to have michael thomas on this team and on the field not for any other reason so i just feel like. There's a disconnect. There is a whole here and disconnect and that whole and communication and how things were supposed to take place ultimately has turned this situation until volatile turbulence situation. I don't see it playing out. Well the way way. It seems to have kind of unfolded and started to develop. Yeah this is a messy situation and now it's very public so there's gonna start to have some mud thrown on both sides. We saw mike sweet. They're so he obviously feels like the messaging is out. There is not accurate. We just heard from champaign last week. He was very vocal about how he felt about the situation. The truth is obviously somewhere in the middle but the bottom line is. We're not gonna have michael thomas out there for the beginning of the season which is bad news for the saints. They don't have drew brees anymore. They don't even know who their quarterback is and michael. Thomas is one of the best receivers in the league. Who use paid a lot of money when you can't just move on because the dead gap is impossible to manage. So it's a really bad situation all around butts. I think it's gotten too messy to amend this point in theory all things are fixable but once things start to become really public and things are said. That can't be taken back. You know there's a there's a lot going on here. I have a still maintain a really hard time believing that michael thomas would wait to have surgery on purpose to sabotage the saints or the season. I just really. I have to hear him. Say that for me to believe that. Because it's just. I don't believe that as a competitor you would do. That doesn't help his career. I understand he's been paid but if he wants to move on like another team once going to want to deal with that. So i just have a hard time believing that i may be something with the training staff to your point earlier. Lavar how do you go off the grid for this long without communicating with player. How does that even work contractually. I don't know this situation. But in the end i don't think it's going to end amicably for the saints and michael thomas joy. I get where you're coming from. You hate to accused guy something like this. And i don't know so. I'm not accusing him either. But i'm just saying six time. Nba champion scotty. Pippin did the same thing right. He did the same thing to the chicago bulls. We all saw that in the last dance. He waited to strategically have surgery before the season started. So we wouldn't have to start the year. So i don't know if micheal thomas did this lavar i'd like to believe you that okay. He's at odds with the training staff. He might be at odds with the wide receivers coach because the reportedly he couldn't get in touch with him. Either i love it if he had sean payton were on the same page because obviously payton has enough clout in that organization to make things right but reportedly sean payton was trying to reach out to and couldn't get an answer so it just seems like micheal. Thomas is done with the saints. And in normally i would say okay. Move on from him. This is a different team now. Drew brees is gone. We got young. Quarterbacks somewhat jameis winston tastes a mill less we can start all over and trade for him maybe we can get a lot more because he's one of the best receivers in the league. Oh but here's the problem. You mentioned the day cat money joy it would be thirty two point six million dollars so that is a lot of money to swallow for bass situation so i i. It is ugly. Maybe can they sit down out of these at least in your presence. You would think where you can talk things out hash things out and get it right. I like to say yes but it doesn't seem like that's the case but it just seems like it's not headed for the right place lavar and i don't know how you fix it now. Especially after his tweet where it looks like he might start dropping dimes on some people. I mean if he does then really detonated. So the only chances. If sean payton and michael thomas sit down and have a conversation. That's the only way this works out. No i agree sean. Payton does have the power within that organization to smooth things over with everyone else. But i've always felt like this was a retooling season for the saints. You're moving on from your hall of fame leader and face of the organization and drew brees. We don't know who the next leader is because they haven't said if it's going to be jamie's or tastes him and now you don't have michael thomas out there and now it's not just that he's not going to be there. There is drama associated with. Why he's not going to be there. You would want to come into the season with michael. Thomas healthy on the field. Especially when you're in a situation where you're moving on from drew brees to a new quarterback like jameis winston or tastes them hell so i'm i'm discouraged right now a saints fan because there's a lot going on but i would put this now on shine payton. He's the coach. He's the one who has the ability to reach out to them and fix all this so he's got to put all his effort into fixing this situation. Yeah i mean he. He's the guy there. So maybe reach out to michael thomas. This move this thing out You certainly want that for jameis. Winston tastes them. Whoever's your quarterback but is not starting off well for the saints guys. Great job we will be back with you guys kamal right here or i things. I stay tuned for skipping. Shannon they're back..

"Would agree with me right. Availability is key for dare ernie by the way only four running backs of won three straight rushing title. If king henry can join that elite group this season we gotta get back to our top story this morning. Up in green bay aaron rodgers with his tell all yesterday in his press conference is he writes that he deserves special treatment. First things first rolling on thursday morning back time now for stores to start your morning. Sponsored by ram trucks built to serve air andres. Not the only guy who stood behind the podium. Yesterday davante adams did as well. First time we've heard from devante since finding out extension talks with green bay had all but stalled when you lead the league with eighteen receiving touchdowns he ever right to be the league's top paid pass. Catcher devante said as much yesterday so brandon. What is your reaction to devante saying. He deserves to be the highest paid. he does. this is the system that they put in place. You're wide receiver. You outperform your contract or your any any position for that matter You outperform your contract. You should happen seat at the table. And let's discuss it and then how you break it down and this is what's this has been in place for years. Our top five receivers larry fitzgerald. He goes to the table. He gets a four year. Deal a forty million dollar contract average ten million dollars a year. Thirty million guarantee so now what happens is orange. Johnson comes back to the table. And andre johnson says well okay. I'm gonna top five receiver. I need a similar deal. I if not the same that need a little bit more. And so then you have andre johnson. Dc aj green and. That's how we get this market to where the players go from ten million dollars received from ten million dollars twelve to fifteen twenty devante. Atoms is ranked eighteenth in the nfl at an author wide receivers and contract right so think about that. He's one of the greatest wide receivers the game and he's playing at a high level. Statistically speaking you can say he's probably he could be put potentially number one joy and he's not there he's not being compensated that way so devante is doing and what he's saying. It's been in place for the past twenty years. We talk about business around athlete. Brennan do you think that he's tied directly to aaron rodgers. Like you told your story about like of jay cutler jay cutler put his house on the market brandon. Marshall put his house on the market. Do you think those guys are tied at the hip or do you see devante adam signing a long term deal with green bay without knowing what aaron rodgers futures holds the toughest part. Most important thing about this especially in the national football league is is is the injury rate. It's an edible evitable one hundred percent injury rate joy so he has to take that into consideration. But if. I'm devante adams i am tied to to Aaron rogers. i'm tired to aaron rodgers. Because i can. I know if it's not a career ending injury. I can go make my money somewhere else. So if if yes if air. Rogers put his house on the market. I'm putting my house on the market. I'm a. I'm definitely tied to hit him. Well devante is in a situation where like you mentioned. He's the next guy up. So you absolutely deserves to be the highest paid and like what the highest paid really means is. It's your turn to get paid. And so the market has already been set. So you're gonna reset the market and then the next guy's gonna reset the market as you already said so. The principle of it is really just that he's up and he's the top receiver in the nfl. Who's next to be paid now. Getting paid in green bay is interesting. Because you just mentioned. Aaron rodgers and being tied aaron rodgers. If he's going to take a contract in green bay aside from the fact that he's the top receiver it's imperative that he is the highest pay because we don't know if aaron rodgers is going to be there next year and he plays a dependent position so even jordan love comes in and he's competent. Let's say he's good. He's still gonna be aaron rodgers league. Mvp not right now. And how's that going to affect devante numbers over the next couple years on him getting the next contracts which may not be the highest paid. But we'll still be a very big contract. He's still in his prime so he has to consider all those things when he's negotiating which is why he should not take anything less than the highest paid wide receiver in the nfl and look. Why receivers premium right now. All of the new rules are curved for the offense. Having a premier wide receiver is very important. That will not be plenty of suitors to pay devante atoms as he deserves but he's got to be strategic with it if he's gonna to stay in green bay because their future is very uncertain. Yes so much to unpack here here. Here's that list again. He is eighteenth on that list. He's not top five tough ten he is. He's not tough. He's eighteenth and he is a top five wide receiver in one and two in majority of people covering the nfl's books right so there's a lot to this. Even when he talked wild he talked about. Look you know when a player underperforms you know team comes in they say look. We're not going to extend you or they say we need money back and those conversations are quick. He that they'd been having these discussions since january february. Why is it so hard to get a deal done about perform contract. You guys see that. No one can stop me. There's people that can slow me down but no one can stop me. So there's more to highlight their in green bay right now man it's it's messy and queen queen. Petty is going to get a little bit more interesting as the days go by. It's only one day that was day. One joy taylor thank you so much for joining us. We gotta go. We'll see tomorrow one..

Volatility in the Greenbay Packers Creates Betting Opportunity

"Let's get right to it. Number one story volatility in the green bay packers so obviously a lot of questions about aaron rodgers was gonna play and what the books did is initially. They went in lowered. Green bay season win number from ten and a half down to nine and that really was a hybrid number that assumed the at about a two thirds chance to go ahead and stay in green bay and they left it up and then finally the books rightfully so were afraid that there'd be resolution on this matter and rogers would be reported in or out and a lot of the books did indeed take it off the board which was a smart move because inevitably the tweet came out that rogers was going to report to camp and things returned back to what the expectation was earlier in the year that green bay would be one of the contenders in the nfc. With rogers their season wind goes back up to ten and a half and with that volatility created some opportunity in terms of betting. You don't see this every day in the nfl. Last thursday night. I bet green bay against the saints. I bet green bay plus three this. Nfl week one lines turn right around. Today it's a wednesday. And what about the saints plus three and frankly with my With the current situation for the packers. I would rate green bay. Don't have to guess. I have my numbers here. Preliminary numbers still tweaking all of them get green bay four points better than average team. I have the saints as an average team. So four point differential give the saints at least three for their home field advantage. That would only make the game one. So given that solid value for the saints catching three in this game. Of course you do have to be concerned about brand new quarterback for the saints and them not having michael. Thomas who frankly wasn't any good last year as well but At this point the line just moved enough. That i think that the saints plus two three would have the

"michael thomas" Discussed on Establish The Run

"So it really depends upon your league structure You know how. You value michael thomas but right now he would not be something that someone that i would be looking to draft pretty much all in a traditional season-long management league. I agree with you. I think the pushback is that in season long managed lease some of these leagues four or sixteen to make the playoffs and then all the money. Is there once you make the playoffs. So if you can squeeze in the plows and then insert someone like michael thomas who we can project for like a twenty five to thirty percent target share. If he's right that would be a big boost to your playoff run obviously needs to get there. But depending on your league format like evans said if you have a deep bench and maybe six teams out. Twelve make the playoffs or something. There's more merit to holding michael. Thomas trying doubled in the whole time. My concern is that when he comes back this ankle's bothering him for a long time. My beard sir. When he goes back as a he won't be in shape. Be ankle may not be right. See it could be some hilla quarterback like there's a lot of issues that you could have with him beyond just kong roster spot and he's also although he is a plus size receiver he really runs a lot of short area routes. He runs. He does a ton of his damage in the slot. You primarily plays outside but he gets. I'm almost as many catches in the slot as he does on the perimeter. So you know. I think with that that the short area movement that he relies upon having an ankle injury a long standing ankle. Injury at this point Can really work against them. And yeah that effectiveness. Is that going to be there. And when he returns and the taste from hill factor that it could it could be ugly in the second half of the season. If even if he's out there playing and this offense could already be cratered. And that's what i want to get to you about where i think we disagree on this trait one smith move that you made from wide receiver fifty nine to wider seaver thirty seven. I don't think train. Quan smith is equipped and i liked him on. I don't think he's equipped to be a number one wide receiver in the nfl. I don't think he's equipped especially of tastes. Them hill is back there to be number one wide receiver in the nfl. So there's no chance that i would be taking trey smith over really good. Nfl receivers like brandon antonio brown deebo samuel devante. Parker viscous a juju sutton judy to meet once a month. There's nowhere near those guys. I'm not even sure that the saints thing trae kwan. Smith is ready for this. We've seen games last year them. Michael thomas miss where it was like. Harris popped up for ten targets. And they got marquette's calloway involved a bunch they little george humphrey and john johnson. I'm not even convinced that trade kwan is going to see five. Six seven targets per gamer. Big target then layering all the tastes and he'll risk as well so i would not have moved trae smith up a ton at all but yeah you feel free to disagree and obviously argue your point. Here trey quit up to wide receiver thirty for thirty seven. I mean he's not even ranked as a top thirty. Six league is as a wide receiver. Three he's a wide receiver three slash. Four and. I think that that's kind of where he belongs. I might back off him a little bit but my initial. I think that he's right now. The favorite for targets in the offense behind alvin kamara. And you know just from target share perspective. I think that he belongs in that wide receiver. Three four range. But yeah i mean we. We could talk about him and and how he you know how he compares to like tyler boyd Who i put him ahead of and tyler board. I think has a chance of like ninety catches. Frequent smith had that news range of outcomes. I'm not sure. I think that's a. That's a fair point. And i might reevaluate that today. Okay we're going to change it to the top one fifty soon as soon as trick wants me gets gets knocked down Tell people about marquez. Calloway and downstairs and join johnson. And jordan humphry. Like i don't know if these guys are really. Nfl wide receivers but they have a big opportunity in front of now. Is there any of those guys that you would consider even drafting. Yeah marcus calloway late. I moved him up into the top one fifty as the wide receiver sixty. He's got pretty good size is about six one. Six two two zero five. Didn't run great coming out. You ran four five five but if you look at his other athletic measurable 's he's a really good athlete. A thirty eight inch vertical. He had a really explosive broad. Jump as well. If you go back and look at his production at tennessee. He was a big play threat at tennessee. He averaged over twenty one per reception his final season in college and he came in last year. He didn't have a big yard reception last year. What he did have some moments where he flash and. I think that he is the favourite right now to be the saints number two receiver until michael. Thomas returns not necessarily a priority guy to draft but he became a. I mean i think a lot more interesting just based on. He's gonna get a lot more playing time in the first half of the season. I sure let's talk about the running back here for second to me and i talked to her. That was the one of the biggest winners. If not the biggest winner of his injury to me was latavius murray. They are going to be way more run heavy. They're gonna need alvin. Kamara split wide a lot more and i think latavius murray actually has a chance to have his role expanded and be effective. I mean you could make a case. Tavis murray's the second most talented offensive player on the saints. Right now behind. Only alvin kamara. So i like latavius. Murray moving him up. You have zero chimera now at our before. Getting passed up by zeke. Which we'll talk about in a second here but any thoughts of moving up and any further thoughts on chimera with more likelihood now that is going to start. Yeah i mean kamera got a little bit of a bump down Just because i moved up zeke and then you know we talked about this on a previous show and you were pretty adamant that you would prefer aaron jones with aaron rodgers back over alvin kamara and i was just looking at the rankings last night and thinking you know how how can i make that You know a part of the top one fifty so this is still a little bit of a work in progress. I don't wanna be too overreaction area to under reactionary on the fallout from what these big changes and and news and notes that are occurring early in training camp. the the fallout from them but I mean i. I'm a little bit. I love the offensive line. you know. i love the saints offensive line. They might have the best offensive line. The league they had their returning all five starters that really works in favor of latavius. Murray but you know again. How good is offense going to be. Are they going to get a lot of short yardage chances at the goal line alvin. Kamara happens to be a pretty damn good goal. Line running back you know in and of himself so we and so as taste of milk yet right and let's us murray's so i don't know is still in progress for sure. I think the risk is that we see the scenes. Offense run like the patriots offense last year. Really good offensive is really good. Coaching rushing quarterback tried to be creative and win games. that way. The problem is that's just a disaster for fantasy. We saw the patriots guys. They were unusable for most of the year where the patriot guys..

"There. I like taking wide receiver in round one in certain spots where we have so many questions about running back. How would you match up now. Tyreek hill verse. Devante verse digs. I believe you have them in. Similar tiers or the same tier. But these guys really davante adams steph digs tyree kale. How would you slot devante and think about if you wanted to go wide receiver in round. One thing about those guys. They're all now first round picks there all i believe within the top eleven overall in the top one fifty and i mean they're they're tough to sort you know i thought about putting davante adams at number one Over tyree kill thought about putting him in number two over stefan digs but you know the big playability. The small narrow target distribution in kansas city betting on patrick mahomes have a better season than aaron rodgers. I think gives tyree kill the edge and then with stefan digs. Just the the ability of stefan digs. Just jump in pretty much cold with very little practice. Time with josh. Allen do what he did. Last year lead the nfl catches and receiving yards. And now they're entering number two with the full off season and the full august to prepare And the use of a little bit on the side of stefan digs. There has me leaning toward stefan digs over davante adams right now but again. All three of these guys are within the top eleven now in the top one fifty. Yeah and i like the idea of big bob. Tanya being up there in the top of his tier for sure last. I want to say is aaron jones. You mentioned it a little bit but man if you're looking for a running back in round one without workload concerns without injury concerns air jones. I mean men and i like aj dylan moved aj dylan rv thirty nine ivan taking aj dylan a ton in round ten eleven of baseball. I think that aaron jones now is around one pick. I don't know who go like that yet. People are going to be anchored a bit to his round two selection. So we'll see what happens. Aaron jones. adp for now will be ahead of air jones adp. And i like that for sure and one thing to note when you are drafting. Aj dylan now is that you know if something were to happen to aaron jones. Aj dill and all of a sudden becomes a potential league winner So that makes aj dylan a lot more attractive. In addition to the fact that now he can be a guy that potentially provides you with some Some standalone value and is like a potential Flex option each week on. It would be very tied to touchdowns and he'd be very volatile score. Even the best case scenario with aaron jones healthy but now he's got a little bit of a floor and very high ceiling if something were to happen aaron jones. Do you wanna give the people a quick scouting report on my rogers. Just in general. Do you think he has to beat out. Mvsa or lazard for number two number three duties or do you think it's just going to be kind of a gadget. He role firm orient player. That they of envisioned when they drafted amari. Roger was randall. Cobb and we've heard rumors from trey wingo who he's not a reporter so you to kinda take what he says with a grain of salt. Nothing against trey wingo by you know. He's like a a a sports personality that he that aaron rodgers is pulling the packers to trade for randall. Cobb and if that were to happen that would not that would that would not help amari. Rogers so yeah. I'm trying to temper expectations for amari rogers. But i think that would fit well. As a slot player allen lazard has also been a high percentage slot player for the packers over the past couple of years. So a randall. Cobb edition would hurt him. And if amari rogers comes along quickly that also would hurt. Allen lazard mean. This is so absurd like i. He got upset when j kuncoro. They've they let jake coomer go. And now he's demanding the trade randall. Cobb who i think has looked really kind of slow down and also has an awful contract right now. He wants him to trade for randall. Cobb i mean it's ridiculous. Okay let's move on to the michael thomas stuff. We talked about this. I talked about this last one. Get hers. But i wanna get your take on it. Because you're much lower michael thomas then what we discussed last week. You drop michael. Thomas from the wide receiver ten to wide sixty two following news that he had ankle surgery in june on his troublesome ankle. We're currently projecting the back around week. Seven or week eight where. We don't know what. I was arguing with about some was. We don't know how healthy he'll be if he does return in that week. Seven or eight spot so this is a massive moved down to wives. Sixty two essentially. What you're saying is a borderline on draftable. So talk to you about wire. So so low on michael thomas to it very much depends upon league format. If you're in. Best ball i think that michael thomas is still very draftable if you are in a league if you're gonna manage league season-long league we have an. I are spot then. Michael thomas is a lot more draftable. But if you're in a traditional season-long league which most people are by far the highest percentage League format in fantasy football still. I think he's really really tough to draft. He's not going to get him. He's going to begin the season on reserve. Up it appears and those first waiver runs a really important typically in the manage leagues and having a guy occupying roster spot for the entire first six weeks with..

"I i think you just want pieces of great offense. So that kind of speaks to your michael gallup questions earlier of if this is going to be a really great offense. Won't michael gallup have some games. I think he he'll probably have a lot of them. And it's hard to complain like dot coming back from injury with zeke in those three wideouts and in two talented wide receivers with darwin and schultz that contributed. Well jar win will and schultz did last year. Like there aren't holes on this offense. You even have a great depth running back tony pollard. Who can Take a little bit of pressure off zeke or give you an explosive play like dacca's himself like it's impossible that this is not a top half offense in it's most likely going to be a top five offense in football. Yep i do not disagree. And they're by far my pick to win the division as much as i'm rooting for washington. Dallas is my pick. They have the highest vegas total. Where do you think that's a. I unfortunately just saw it so i will stain I mean are they really at nine and a half. There are nine okay. Yeah they were at nine and a half earlier. This offseason believe it or not but Without wide receiver room. Just because it's a great one doesn't mean it's easy to project for fantasy purposes because you might not know who to start winding stardom cooper lamb are going basically back to back in fantasy drafts. I mean you have. Both of them is fourth round picks and then gallops way down in the tenth round. So how do you see this playing out in terms of upside insecurity. I think security. If amari cooper is active by the time the draft come around and he's back at camp which is the expectation prior to the season. Then i still have this. I'm gonna be hanging with mr cooper. Because i think the security is there. The upside is there. When he's been with dak he's been absolutely phenomenal. He's also he moves around. They use them on the outside. They move into the slot. They move them everywhere because he is their primary. I re target even if he's not the most talented. If cd lamb. This season has leapfrogged him in talent. I do worry a little bit about the utilization. Will they do that now. That he's not a rookie. He absolutely could explore more but landing around two cds of the cd. I i am to a little bit. Because and i'm not happy about it this just true. Yeah well especially in right on hoover especially with the amari cooper injury. It makes it a lot easier.

"They know it to me is more about cd. Liam because see lambs being drafted very similar to saint spot amari cooper. And i just don't know how the amari cooper may be missing a game or two had you're saying you raise your if id lamb hopes. Because i would star michael gallup one hundred percent of weeks is not there. I i would agree. I guess my point is. Is i think by that time. We will know whether or not he is missing games. And i don't expect him to miss games if he doesn't miss games that i'm not that interested muscle saquon on the pup to start training camp. Cady area's tony on the reserve cove. Nineteen list I think we're all hopeful that there will be far less cova reserve news than we had last year where it was a mean. That was a wild ride for fantasy players. But this is. This is not great for canaries. Tony like miss some time which to be to be fair to the news. We don't know though we don't know if he was just exposed correct. We don't know if he is positive or not but if he's if he ends up. Missing training camp goes beyond ross time. I hear what you're saying. Don't hear what i'm not saying. Don't hear that took the tony. Mrs training camp that is devastating for his first half outlook. Very unlikely. I mean he was a player that we're not expecting big things out of rookie year anyway. So you're right. I mean he's not really in consideration rem andrei stevenson starting on the injury. non football injury list in early june. They had said he's fighting through some things. But if you are looking for clarity in that backfield. I'm going to be honest with you. Patriots running back patriots running back around stevenson. thank you fourth round. Pick i before even knowing this news. I made some trades. Tr- angling for damian harris ou in the recent weeks now. I didn't get him but i went after him with intention. Because i am starting to rise on i saw the consistency that will see from damian harris and you know his real threat would have been stevenson being there on day. One genre working himself into a timeshare but the odds of that were already low and then now with the injury i mean. This is aiming harris's backfield and honestly i mean if if you don't know who ray stevenson is. is a rookie prospect. Coming in who Has dealt with weight issues and in whether he's in shape or out of state makes a gigantic difference to you. Know what you see on the field the fact that he's on the nf. I list spire me to believe that he's gonna come into the season once he gets back in perfect top peak performed shape. So that's that's yeah. Speaks to what you're saying and then Just circling back to the kovic policies. For the nfl they did announce on thursday therefore game cannot be rescheduled due to a covert outbreak among unvaccinated players. The game will result in a forfeit for the team with the outbreak Yeah i mean. We always some rescheduling last year. So there is not going to be if that happens. You won't get a game back for that team and rice players. The this is. This is the nfl flexing on the players. Sending a message saying get it done the nfl. Pa came out after this. It's at just so you know these were the same rules last year Which i did not know that at at first but basically the then we know. The last year this this one is Specifically talking about unvaccinated players the but last year the rules of a game in scheduling and those in the money. Yeah yep otherwise that's all. I've got for news. That was today's news brought to you by sleeper as always sleeper. They've been adding some great soft lately. I ipad support something. They've been working on I i heard an idea. That's worth mentioning somebody. Somebody talked about you. Know they complain about people taking too much time in a draft and someone had the idea of doing chess style. Rules on drafting where you have a full. You have a set allotment of time. Oh how funny. And so while you're on the clock you're you're using up some time and then when you make your is that what that clock does you didn't know that i either in chaz never thought it was just like that's how you really flex on somebody like your and look at the amount of donald takes me to do my move. You get a set amount of time and time do you the whole game the whole game so if you were to go over your time in a game you would then lose. You didn't know that now did because i'm not a nerd. That just hurts neither. Have you guys watched the Oh did i watched queen's gambit. I did you comprehend that reality during the entire eight and never once said. I've always seen them hit the little timer. Yeah i just thought it was like this. Keeping track of how much time it takes a bus now to searching for bobby fischer reference. But what do you think about that idea for like you know everybody certain amount of time so if you wanna take it up i love that sleepers always willing to explore new things. I think that's a terrible idea because that just gives people much more time in the beginning like woj more time in those first few rounds to okay slowdown in five. Oh game. I don't know what that means. Google mike is back in a five. Oh game the white and black clock. Each gets five minutes meaning that the game could take up to ten minutes total. What do that's not. That's not a I have when i finish a chest. That's certainly not fast. That's not regular chess. Lord chess a slower game was five fifteen to thirty minutes. Yeah in a whole new world. Also mike needlessly dunks on all nerds from everything except for his own nerd. Dome also is. I have i. I'm a little out of it. I'm a. I'm trying to push through wild night of dungeons and dragons lifestyle. Not not a joke. But he's not a nerd like those also. Now you know why.

This isn't the worst like this is not the camakers news. no great. But it's not that it's not camakers and there's a lot to talk about where the michael thomas expected. To miss the start of the season he underwent a surgery in june to repair ligaments in his ankle in june. Thanks saints beat writers. They kept that On the down. Low and the estimated time of recovery for this surgeries four months. And so he could be on the sideline for several weeks into the year of seeing everything up to a half a year. And i believe the three of us when we went into the ultimate draft in rankings. We made adjustments based on the present. Right now assumption. That he'll miss at least six weeks. Yeah he he feels like a perfect candidate for the pop list which means he automatically has to mitch. Miss those six games Not mitch them. No which is what the bears quarterback last year. Yeah well nobody beats mitch Trae quant smith marquez. Calloway dante harris. Welcome to your wide receiver room No more emmanuel sanders. No more jared cook who you know whatever you wanna say about how. His skills are progressing. He had experience at the nfl level. So right now. Don't know the quarterback you don't really know i mean trey quit. Smith has the most experienced by far of that group but has been inconsistent. We're looking at emmanuel sanders. Contributions last year with michael thomas missing time. He was over seven hundred yards receiving. So how do you look at this offense now in you know adam. Trautmann's their alvin kamera's there. Yeah i mean those two guys get clear bump adam trautmann. Mike is super excited because he was he was one of the first to the party on the atom. Trautmann train and this this ends up obviously giving him an opportunity for more targets. You know we've seen a lot of times win. A tied in becomes fantasy. Relevant is because they are just necessary. It's it's not like they're super talented. Now you're mixing the hopeful talent. We have not seen. It relies on the nfl field but he was drafted with talent in mind to be a good pass catching tight end at the nfl. Llamas drafted tight end. He wasn't a a day three pick. That is like well. Let's see if this guy makes the team right and you mix that with the necessary opportunity so that that that gets a little exciting for those. Are you know in that camp. The wide receiving core is as it stands. Now without michael. Thomas might be the worst in the league It's it's one where you expect new orleans to there. There are no free agent. Wide receiver veterans out. There just waiting to be scooped up of any note They're all larry jerrell. Right.

"I think though now lean more on the tvs. And i know you hate it like. Oh what's bring that that running back and put him outline. We'll play both same time. This might be one of the times. We actually have to see them play in the field in time. I don't think more likely as you. Just bring him in and off and they're just so heavily involved as a combinatorial unit. I do want to note here in our projections. we have built in an unnamed wide receiver. It's almost certain that the saints are going to add someone. Golden tate is available. Alshon jeffery is available. Danny matola is available. So we have built that into projections. They're going to add someone with that in mind trick wine or any of these other dust balls do anything for you. Now trae kwan house to. I've moved him up to that. Buffalo bills range. I think i have in right. After the alike emmanuel sanders at one thirty eight. adp but with perriman pyramids sterling. Shepherd was like we have a little higher. But they're still the one. I dunno often do a couple of drafts and see like mit campbell. Or am i taking trae on You kind of get that reverse game theory aspect with the trae kwan's well it's not as big a deal for me like what sixteen th round bursts thirteen. So i'm not really been that much But we have seen trade one house in big games while michael. Thomas wasn't playing. I step in my mind that two touchdown dame he had So it's nice there. Otherwise marquess calloway down to harris like i'm not changing. I think the running game. it's more attractive. Okay last guy got asked about before we get out. Here's adam trautmann. In some circles people have been excited about amtrak even before this michael thomas injury. I'm not sure this helps him though. I mean any more attention that teams complaints other players. Not that they're going to be paying a ton of attention data traveling but doesn't seem to help him. I don't think what do you think about. Adam troutman now. Were you on him before when you think about him though. Yeah wasn't in those circles just too much of a question mark like he's like that. Typical guy works tight end. Who were like tight ends are so deep this year because we got troutman but like he hasn't shown us anything excitement and like yeah now he's got even more opportunity because there's just no one else fighting for those targets But like. I don't know who's getting him. The ball the taste it just a situation where overall like what we want. We want our tight ends to have touchdown opportunities. Is he really going to have much on opportunities this year. I don't yeah. I think with the news that big darwin is practicing and they were. I think around the definitely preferred blake darwin. There for me over. Adam trautmann okay. Sadly to emergency podcast. This week alone are in the book. Scope you guys enjoy be sure you're fouling justin on twitter at justin hersey.

Michael Thomas Expected to Miss Start of NFL Season With Ankle Injury

"Thomas of the Saints is going to Miss a lot of time, at least the start of the season. Now, this from Ian Rapoport, it is recommended that he gets four months of rest. So if you do the math on that, and I'm not a math guy, really, that would put a Michael Thomas potential return toward the end of November. That is a long time for the New Orleans Saints to be without their star wide receiver again. He had surgery today on his ankle.

"You really just got to get there so in that situation. I'm more content. San like i got michael thomas. Where does that go from me. From a ranking standpoint. Maybe moves bob. Like around that t- higgins but like there's some solid wide receivers. That are still in that before beckham tier area. I've definitely put him before. The pittsburgh is just because even though there's talent with the clay pool and the deontay like there's just so many mouths to feed and so many other issues that offense so i'm saying now maybe moving him up about like five seven spots Just because hey. I trust myself to be able to survive those weeks without him. Still pull out. A couple of ws overall on doing is making the playoffs. And then i've got michael thomas in the playoffs boom. Let's at the root ron okay. Let's move to a more macro conversation. About how the saints. They're going to play now. I mean my god. they're wide receiver. Depths are just trade on smith marquess. Calloway deontay harris. Little jordan humphry. john. Johnson i mean there. They were already one of the weaker. Why rooms in the league. Now they are just an absolute stone. Disaster tight end. Like i'm okay with adam trautmann. But they let jared cook go. I mean you know so there's gonna be a lot to talk about when it comes to the saints are gonna play this conversation about who will start. Tastes them in james. You think this makes them lean more towards tastes them without michael thomas. I kind of agree. But how do you think the saints played from a macro perspective. Without michael thomas released the first month. We gotta put ourselves in the position of that coaching staff and think about okay. Now that i know this injury like who does my who gives my team the best chance at and before i personally believe jen's i mean i think maybe tastes him gives you keeps you in close or games or something like if you wanna win the super bowl you wanna make like you gotta have a legitimate quarterback. I think that's ridiculous place but now maj as their. Who's he throwing this to like. You can't depend on james. James loves to gut throw guys into coverage. He wants as wide receivers to kind of fight for him and windows. Jump balls and michael. Thomas is a physical wide receiver. He's not just. That slammed boy like he would have done that. I'm not trusting lawn and martinez and trautman so like as a coaching staff. I would say. I think was a great opportunity to use tatum. We're going to be competent before this. They were the third highest. Run team behind baltimore. Tennessee team even become first or second now. Because we know they've bet one about run first offense since since we've lost breeze We know that they have latavius. They have alvin now view. You tasted in the running game as well. That's where i really see this offense turning into and yeah so i mean like i think i'm leaning more now that they're gonna use more likely to use as i'm just because i think that makes more sense for the offense and if they use james hoof. How long does he stay until they decide to pull in tatum. Are you adding tastes them to three quarterback rosters in best ball. Because i have mostly to quarterback rosters. I tried to get an elite one. Ideally and ended up with two but there are three quarterback. You may case for three quarterback. Construction does tastes them. Enter the mix there late for you. Well it doesn't general because for me for three quarterback teams. I'm not looking for three quarterbacks to be able to throw together a twenty point week and just survive. I'm looking for three quarterbacks that have upside so daniel jones late maybe even like sam darnold. New offense like who knows tastes fits that built. The problem for me has been. Who do i stack in west. Because if you're drafting kamara you don't want tastes them like they're directly inverse correlated with each other before henin. Michael thomas would have been a great good. Have been great starters but now you don't have that so i'm saying..

"Our second emergency podcast of the week. This one in the wake of michael thomas's foot surgery news broke this morning. Michael thomas did have surgery in june on his troublesome ankle and is expected to miss roughly four months. Shout out to me. I have zero mt so far just in not so lucky. Based on his portfolio reveal on the site looks like he has around twelve percent justin. Has it gone money going. Okay yeah not the best of circumstances for us to come together but I think what it's july twenty third now. we know. don't dog. this is still a little earlier. We're expected these kind of kind of season breaking news items. Come out but we gotta be ready because especially come. August is they're gonna and maybe not to the degree of a torn achilles sea and stuff but like the camakers. Michael thomas like you know. Hey we gotta be ready on. So let's talk and let's see how we can kind of adapt. This episode is going to be short and focused. Strictly on the fallout from michael thomas's injury before we get to his teammates in the effect there. Let's start with michael thomas himself right now. We are projecting him to return around week. Seven following the saints bhatt. Thomas was previously around three pick. Now he's gonna miss. I dunno somewhere at least four weeks of the regular season. We don't know how healthy he'll be when he returns. His quarterback could be tastes hill when he returns. Just in harry thinking about where to draft. Michael thomas now. Let's start with best ball and they'll move to manage. Because i think it's a little bit different conversation. Let's start with best ball. Harry thinking about where to draft michael thomas now. Yeah so for starters. I was number two concern for michael thomas whether it was going to be tasted hill or jameson. Saw even when he was hell like he was still getting ridiculous. Target share and so yeah. Maybe efficiency isn't as great. Maybe like the end zone because you're going to get a little more. That kind of tastes wonky. Nece like goes down but overall like i was content. Drafting michael thomas. No that quarterback is now. It's less about You know the efficiency stands and it's more just like what's going to happen to that often. So when i'm thinking of michael thomas right now. I'm almost thinking about more the game theory aspect of. Yeah so we get him back in week seven. How is he going to be at one. Hundred percent probably not with these kind of lingering injuries especially the leg injuries But hey if the market's going to be valuing cam. I wanna think about any draft. I take him right now. I'm getting leverage over. Everyone else that has already taken in that late. Second early third round so from a purely strategic aspect of best ball. I think what we need to start thinking about is okay yeah. We're not really sure what's going to happen. How much is gonna come back one hundred percent but there's going to be fewer that'll make it to the championship or that make it to the final round who had drafted him early on because they've extended that capital and so may actually make you more unique. So i'm actually more attracted to the idea of drafted michael thomas. We just gotta figure out where he's going to settle from an adp wise me. Personally i have him and some on looking right now. I think i've got him right after that kind of brandon. Tear to your like right before the beckham But it's really. I mean it's really difficult to kind of project someone they're gonna miss five six weeks. We don't really know what they're going to come back for so for me. i'm saying. Hey let's let the shuttleworth settles from their all. Bend aside from game theory aspect. How much thomas..

Michael thomas going to miss some weeks to start the season after having ankle surgery in june adam as our jamie eisenberg here reacting quickly to this news We don't have a definitive timetable yet. But you're about to hear where jamie's putting michael thomas in his rankings. Were expecting an extended absence as of right now as a friday july twenty. Third jamie is michael. Thomas still the first saints wide receiver. You're drafting the great question. Yes he still will be the first state wide receiver. I'm drafting first off. When you tweet out the link for this dome sound excited because you've got some slack too happy apparently about camakers being injured which was totally grabbed I think Look good socks. Obviously it sucks. That sounds like you know he's going to be out So the surgery was in june and There's a four-month timetable. According to nfl network. So if you look at it thereby is week six. They play the seahawks in week. Seven than they have a two game. Turnaround against the bucks in the falcons in weeks. Eight and nine so two huge divisional games. That seems to be the window where he's probably going to return which puts us near the end of october beginning of november If we don't have any definitive answers until then you know. This is a guy that you're going to have to draft with significant risk because we have the quarterback situation and the concerns. They're not knowing exactly how we'll do a full season without drew brees. We clearly have some small sample sizes twenty nine hundred teddy bridgewater twenty tastes hill. But there's obviously risks involved. Now now you have the potential of what if there's a re injury. What if there's you know a setback in his recovery and he's out until the end of november. And you're not getting a player that you have to carry on your roster until the end of the season so you have to sort of take this with the okay. Am i getting a player. That's going to be a difference maker or getting player. It's going to be an albatross on my fantasy team Is this a matter of i. Think how you sort of have your roster building and what your bench spaces are and how long you can carry somebody. Irs bodies well. I'm glad you brought that up because you know last year i think a lot of teams added spots and sometimes they just use them for players. Who went on the cova list. But i had never played with i spouse before and some are leagues. I was allowed to put just injured players players who were on. I are not players who were short term. Irr in my ira spot. And i thought it was great. I really liked it. So i recommended. And if you have an i are spot then you could put michael thomas on it then then i think you know he goes off a few rounds probably a possibly depending on how many bench spots you have but are where are you going to end up with michael thomas in your rankings. And by the way we're going to talk about the rest of the saints and how it's going to impact them alvin. Kamara played eight games without michael thomas. Last year any average seven catches per game. He was on pace for one hundred and twelve catches. He had now. It was broken down a little bit. differently it was the first six games. Thomas missed early in the season. He had eight or more catches in five of.

Yeah first of all the internal pressure and second of all the physical. Play at the line of scrimmage by murphy bunting getting physical with the receiver michael thomas undercutting that outraged by drew brees. That throw was a huge tone. And that. I love the to mike evans big body in the red zone. Stay in between the quarterback and defensive back touchdown tampa bay for cash in ten six tampa ensuing drive seats trying to respond. This is james winstons. First career playoff past and dan take a look at the triggering. Yeah love the beautiful design and then trey smith leaking down the middle field.

Take great play designed by matt. Nagy that sean payton carries over to yesterday saints thirteen. Ten is the advantage there. Bucks get a field goal. So we're tied up at halftime first.

The right they get that slant because it's man coverage but just watch that right hand come in on that back side punch to finish that playoff for tampa bay's defense. That ball bounces right to their defender to huge turnover for them saints turnovers and the bucks cashing in. That was the story of the game. Here's brady that's leonard. Four bucks tied up at twenty cook knows. That mistake was critical. Comes another one dan. Although this one clearly seems to be miscommunication yeah really. It's really just trying to get a vertically route to evan chimera out of the backfield but what happens is never liked. Does a remarkable job of playing with vision onto drew brees patient and then no wasted movement snaps drives on that football before kamera ever turns around and drew knows that was a terrible decision.

Patriots at Dolphins: Times are changing and this stat proves it

"I thought it was crazy that the past thirteen dolphin matchups dolphin Pat's match up before this one the Patriots were the favorites. That streak is ending this week that the Dolphins are two point favorites. In fact, it's 33 the past 34 think about how crazy that is. And the only time that that wasn't a dolphin's wage favorites before before this week with in 2013. If you remember the Dolphins went 2420 with safety Michael Thomas five days after being signed off the 49ers practice squad intercept Tom Brady in the end zone to seal the win. So that's one of the things I wrote about 2 in the channels are facing a Bill Belichick defense or again. Everything and anything about the Dolphins this week and about this matchup will be on on the website all dolphins on the SI Network. I absolutely believe that and that's why I had Al-Anon because I knew he would deliver the goods and I really appreciate it now and then in terms of the Patriots not being favored in this game. It's a disappointing as a fan but it's obviously, you know justifiable as somebody in an objective Observer and did this game and it's interesting times here in New England to say the least. This is I think even maybe even worth and then some people expected it's even better than other people expected with you know, the year after Tom Brady, so it's kind of following exactly where I think it should fall, you know, when you lose a quarterback of that caliber and you kind of get the reset button on your

NFL Playoff Futures: Who will make the 2020 post-season?

"Wanted to talk about playoff odds and not not. Just who's gonna make the playoffs but also the nfc the nfc's a really weird place. The saints are plus three fifty to win this to in the nfc. None of us like the saints even are as good as they looked last week against tampa. There's still this unease with because breezes arm strength. It just makes me nervous. I'm starting to talk myself into the saints. Okay yeah okay so a couple of things number one. Smart people in july and august said wait until brady gets half a season under his belt and they're going to get better you know. No one cares. More about the details. And tom brady doesn't have a training. Camp does not as doesn't put pads on till till august fifteenth. He's gonna get better and better and better and so week one when when the bucks and the saints played. I threw that out. I said this this doesn't matter bracing to get better and better better. This was the closing the gap game for me. And then i didn't see that and obviously they were there whipped everywhere you know. Ali maher pet being out was a big thing with with with with people who started the game. But i think that this was bigger than than alley marquette quite frankly okay The the saints were able to get a four man rush the entire game. Are they able to pressure brady on half of his dropbacks when they had a four man rush. That's really good Since marcus davenport's come back in week five had the most pressures in football pressuring and football There's just something there. The problem at the beginning of the year was that lattimore and marcus williams were bad and those are two pretty good players and i think that you know a good pass rush. Ken console that those guys can get better and so with with brees. Listen there are. There are problems with the fact. You can't throw down the field. The offensive line is not as good as it has been in years hospice and matter with brees because he gets rid of the ball and a second. It's like peyton manning he doesn't need you know the the the best offensive line in the world and then lattimore who we were kind of dunking on because at one point he was giving almost a perfect passer rating. He owns mike evans. He own them. He is not given up a reception. Mike evans the last three games. They've played and so when if those guys play in the playoffs again. There's that match up. So i i don't. I'm feeling better about the saints. Now that i was two three weeks ago. Good coaching staff. I gary coaching staff. Yeah so the fear in this isn't just the saints but the fear is all right. What happens at their downtown in a playoff game. It's basically the lamar jackson corollary. How am i feeling down. Thirteen to three in the second quarter and they've just done a three and out. What were my emotions in that moment. That's my the saints because a breeze. I think that because they don't you don't think they're capable of a big play. Is that your fear if teams though like all right. They've got to air this out. They've got to quicken the pace and also it's amazing to me a cameras probably been the. Mvp think it's either him cook mahomes berry some order Okay i'm amazed at teams aren't just like all right. We're taking him out like bell. Check in his prime your. He got added as kids to the coaching staff and decided to throw a fight street. Drafts fail check All he would do me like chimeras not beating me. You can have everyone else on the saints. I'm not getting beat by that guy. I'm falling everywhere he goes. We're hitting him constantly. He's not beating me. Why don't teams do that with them. I don't get it okay. So first of all they have a of weapons. Thanks so she when michael. Thomas is healthy There's a lot they can do their you know. I think peter king early breakdown. His column this week about there was a play where the bucks dropped eight men into coverage and it was a weird play. They had their fullbacks put out wide and brees hit a random tight end. Adam traveling for a touchdown even throwing into eight men like that. There's just something their breezes still really really good so. I think it's a bit simplistic to say. Just take away kamara because they can do other stuff And they can. They can change their game plan so

"Bill Barnwell. It is late Sunday night almost midnight, which means it's time for you to make me smarter about the NFL. I'm going to try my best Baba Bill. Barnwell is a senior writer for ESPN host of the Bill Barnwell show and he's procrastinating his deadline to talk to me. So we just watched the saints and the packers on Sunday night football and the saints lost without. Their Star Receiver Michael Thomas. But that did not stop us from getting a whole bunch of touchdowns drew brees and Aaron Rodgers. Each threw for three a piece. But in the end, the packers won the saints lost and they've now lost New Orleans says back to back games for the first time since two thousand, seventeen bill I know you are writing a new piece about drew brees coming off of the two year deal that drew brees signed in the offseason and what we've now seen from him through these first three weeks what did you see in Sunday night's games he regressing improving? What do we have with bruise right now? Okay. So public drew brees definitely improving this is a better performance from him. Me brees was downright bad on Monday night in week two against the raiders before we got to garbage time and breeze didn't do deep very frequently until this game was out of hand but I think the concerns i. have read or have heard about arm strength or how deep is passes typically go they don't really get how reason this offense actually worked. Breezes sort of like. A singles hitter in baseball like Tony Gwynn lagging time where a post player with no range in basketball he's not going to suddenly start throwing deeply. He's Patrick Mahomes at forty one years old breeze has succeeded. Over the last three years while throwing the shortest paths in the League because he's posted the three best single season completion. In NFL history. Now. The good news for the Saints Good News For Saints Fans is that brees was much more accurate on Sunday night it was twenty, nine, thirty, six for two, hundred, eighty, eight yards a lot of that West Alvin Kamara who did a lot of the work but still going to end up thirty six is still better than where brees was. The bad news was just about everything else. The Saints Lost Starters Jared Cook and Andres P to injuries while devante. Adams List Aaron Rodgers threw for two hundred, eighty, three yards and those three touchdowns you mentioned. The saints focused on adding veterans with nicknames Emmanuel Sanders and balcony. Jenkins this off season. But. Sanders hasn't been able to stand out with ankle Thomas Injured and Jenkins has been picked apart in pass coverage including Mercedes Lewis touchdown on Sunday night the attorney for more accurate breeze that was a bright spot. But if the saints continue to struggle with injuries and get disappointing play from their stars, the Orleans is going to need this version of free stick around to have a chance to compete in the NFC. So the packers emerged three no, and that's where a lot of focus the rest of our conversation here on the teams that are now undefeated through three weeks of the NFL season. So bill, let's push deeper into the NFC here because the Chicago Bears Be Chicago bears are somehow three you know and they do it by beating the Falcons thirty to twenty six Chicago was trailing by sixteen head coach. Matt Nagy Decides to pull quarterback Mitch Trubisky in favor of the veteran nick foles mister big bleep nick himself who goes on to throw three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter. So I have a two part question for you now. Why are the Falcons physically incapable of holding onto a fourth quarter lead and? Secondly, where does this leave the whole quarterback situation in Chicago? Let me answer the second part of that question I. The bears are going to flail by the seat of their pants for the rest of the season I would assume that nick foles is going to start until he struggles and the bears trailing by two touchdowns in the fourth quarter a couple weeks from now, I would point Mitch Trubisky will come in and lead them to victory and the cycle will start the new. Unfortunately I don't have one simple takeaway for our poor friends and Atlantic. Is Different From what we saw in week to as. Much. As the defense was disappointing in this game, the offense really deserves a fair chunk of the blame for what happened scored a touchdown on the opening drive third quarter, and then basically tried to sit on their lead, Matt Ryan and company REPA- total three first downs on their next six is before the bears took the lead back and the only scored one field goal over that time after bisky intercession back running back Brian L. dropped an easy third down conversion which would have put the Falcons and field goal range. Then on the next drive kicker, young coup miss a forty eight yard field goal attempt. I know. I mean let's be fair. The Falcons defense was very bad. I'm not sure the Falcons are gonNA make any drastic changes on Monday morning, but Arthur blank can feel great about seeing this happen. On his seventy eighth birthday and. I believe I'm not mistaken not the only person celebrating birthday on Sunday. Having Birthday Pamela. Day Pablo. Yeah this is a hard way to discover that you share a birthday with the owner of the Atlanta Falcons Bill, which feels like you just cast a pox upon my house.
