"minkah fitzpatrick" Discussed on Beating The Book with Gill Alexander
"Everybody and it's like he's he's down so they got a clear. Everybody out raiders. Get the ball. derek targets. Stymied on the i. i guess. Because they blew the whistle. You know i had under one and a half for short tedi. Oh wow man and then then the two boys later it's the don't then it's the next. And then they do harm. They go an alex. Leatherwood jumps offsides. You're like i can't believe what i'm watching. sure enough. Two plays later off the helmet into the hands of the rapists. And you're like i cannot believe is happening. But then lamar. Jackson puts the ball on the ground again which drew and i talked about earlier this week. It's it's hard to get mad at lamar jackson because he was running for his life the entire game. And then finally the touchdown were marlon humphrey in the middle of the ball in mid air goes. Yeah you're going to score good. That's just bananas bananas. Like you'll see guilty. You like waller over six naff minus one hundred seventy four and a half which is what it is currently at. Yes just over over over all dare cars throat ball game and they should. It seems to me that that's the correct play but Threw saying that minkah fitzpatrick is gonna is gonna get all over him but still it's not gonna matter if they throw to eight hundred times right eight hundred times. It won't matter but yeah. I agree with the veteran of too. But i mean. I'm not going under on waller props. Let's put it that way. Todd bet i you know. I don't like any of these damn games but if i had to pick one i'll take the new england patriots minus the six at the new york jets now. I was a little skeptical of all the mac jones. Everyone was getting complete excited sexually over mack jones. Like oh my god. This is the greatest quarterback in the history of football. And he's unbelievable. And oh my god. And i have to say. I was actually pretty impressed with mack. Jones i'll be honest. I was pretty impressed. It was a tough defense with with the dolphins they were inside the red zone. A whole bunch of times granted. They had to kick. Bill goes many times and of course they screwed gill in a fifty fifty toss up in the fourth quarter there. Okay fifty five forty five gill whatever anyways the point is they were moving the ball. He did throw one gorgeous ball on a wheel route that i was like god. Damn that was a rookie through that ball. This mac john's might be for real. And so i really liked what i saw at amac jones and because of that it's bella check against some guy from byu who also is creating sexual excitement for people but they came back to earth with you. What's happening to you right now. I'm trying to say a nice way to say in a in a family friendly way i was gonna use the b word but i'm not gonna say everybody. Everybody had a little too much excitement. About mr zach wilson and they came back to earth and i think they're going to have to come back there again this week. The jets are not a good football team. Folks they're just that good and you need a rookie quarterback and he's going to get bella. Check and bella checks to draw something up and if matt jones is gonna play decently i don't think minus six is so much to ask even though we're on the road okay. Mic my top pick..

"I love when my running backs angry. You gotta assume. Derrick henry this the fuck off do y- nine rush for eight yards at one point yesterday i i would hope at least that the guy who rushed for over two thousand last year's i you know what this is bullshit. I'm gonna just put it on myself and run through these welcome people. If tone wasn't back in his cova cave Because of a close contact tease piece cowboy hop back in the saddle again by the way had a couple of close contacts around him. Obviously he'll stay away from the office for the rest of the week hopefully will continue to test negative through the weekend. He'll be back on monday but digs would-be very loud screaming into mike van. So i don't pay run back so i don't know he'll he'll leave out christian. Mccaffrey obviously having a massive game. Alvin cooked continuing to be a massive part of their offense and other running backs that have continued to have success after getting paid but that is a big day take. Is that a running back kinky pay because once they get paid things change. You don't necessarily want to take twenty hits to the ribs into the knees once you make a certain amount of money because the running back position gets battered as as it is maybe kennedy turns it up and i think for dare kennedy offense alliance going to have to say for sure. Julio also probably hopefully has little chip after last week. And also i do think derrick henry. This is his last year with guaranteed money. Because didn't they do the extension as fifty million. Yeah right and this is the second year the the d. line though for seattle will not get enough now creditor praise. The offense line for the indianapolis colts is good. One i think everybody agrees with that. Missing left tackle because casandra retired. Allegedly eric fisher is coming back off an achilles this weekend i hope he's all the way back. It's going to be tough that d. line for seattle cause health lot of problems for carson wentz and that offensive line so if the tennessee titans can't figure out the block game i think seattle seahawks titi. You're right how about the rams at four. i guess that's good because their top five but who's going to stop that team who's gonna who's gonna who's gonna be able to beat jalen ramsey and aaron donald away. They're playing right now. Who's going to be able to stop matthew stafford able to make every single. Throw in sean mcvay beans. I'm not a hundred central or anybody like that's why this season so awesome that's why the power rankings are so beautiful because there's always going to be a debate because there's always these all if this was a play this team right now. Who would out. That's what these rankings are. My biggest issue is very bill. So what are we. We don't even have to act like oh. i wonder. I wonder if this was the play. This team right now. This will be happening. But i guess is what we gotta do. Whenever we don't know who's betting who's picking and everything like that and they do all thirty two. And i know the raiders route like twenty three or something and they just they just want me games. That means there's at least like s in front of them lost so it's hard. I assume not to carry end for preconceived notions going into the season and carrying those at least in a week to week three week four but if this is mostly for right now who is in. You have to at least look at what happened week. One and adjust accordingly the raiders. Get a tough win on the shot themselves in for a couple times derek. I've learned from watching peyton. Manning and russell wilson eli manning has a lot of room to potential continue to grow you get better in that offense. I believe that was pretty evident in there and they got incognito out there denzel good. Who's my guy. He's out that team. Maybe tinton needs to get better and continues to win games. But i don't think he's ever going to give the raiders enough respect for what they actually deserve because everybody knows inevitably in the end. It's probably not going to work out. Because they're in the same division. The chiefs the chargers and the broncos right now which are all incredible squads well and even if you do go by that preconceived notions i mean every single one of these had the packers in the top four before the saying that they deserve to be after getting embarrassed like that that is just feeding into like hey these guys fucking stink eight amount of the top. The legitimacy of this is that the packers are not in their true right. So the packers. Not being in there. And it's like okay. This list warrants a little bit of credence a little bit of respect. And then he goes eight and five new orleans. Just beat the hell out of the packers there at nine in san francisco. I mean almost blew the game. Two lines were blue. Twenty point lead at one point. Shouldn't they be flip-flop. Yeah but i think a lot of people would say that niners if you if you don't just watch highlights and you actually watch soccer when their starters were and whenever they are actually playing dog walking. Mc dc now in. I don't say garbage time but mc dc's boys leaning thirty two. just strictly. I think we learn more about detroit. Then maybe we did at the end of the niners or whatever. But i think you're right. I mean the saints. Look like who's gonna fuck defense in the lines by the way there are thirty one they yes jags. I believe it was the jags. It might have been the jets. Can't thank you enough for allowing us. Penetrate your ear holes on a monday through friday basis fucking really cool man really cool if you hate. Listen to all the way to this point shut you. I don't know how you doing shot. But if you liked the show which i appreciate and i have no idea how to be honest with you. I get sick of me a long time ago. I've been with me a long time with me a long time but the fact that the boys crush you listen. It's a beautiful thing. If you enjoy the show please be front telephone if not just act like it never happened. Hashtag into pod squad still giving up birch We're back tomorrow. A beautiful thursday type placement. Minnesota music compelled these people into an incredible wednesday night. We'll see him in yanna..

"Number three in los angeles rams at number four if i was to be ranking this district off a week one performances which i think is what they are ranking. I mean seattle. Los angeles the niners separate the fourth quarter. There's a lot of movement in my eyes. Kansas city was downtown but they flip a switch and come back and win whenever they want. Tom brady had that moment where he saw the other team. Take a leading pissed off. He's gonna come back and win. This thing the seahawks rams though in the niners i believe for three quarters game appeared to be the best squads in the nfl. This rankings in the saints at nine is absurd by the way we especially with what they did to the packers. So we have a lot of question marks but i think everybody would agree. Top ten. seems like that's probably the bundle. Everybody's gonna pick for unless the raiders deserve to be in there especially. If you're going to have the ravens in we'll even cowboys i mean. I feel like the ravens aren't the most impressive team that lost on this weekend or at least one. That doesn't warrant. The i thought the cowboys looked just as good as the ravens. If not better the afc west in the nfc west are all wanna know. Okay so everybody in the afc west. An nfc west is one and only couple teams from reaching their. I think that is a fascinating thing as well in the packers aren't even in top ten so that tells us that they're judging strictly on week one performances if the packers aren't in there unless they're predicting that the packers are going to stink. I'm fascinated by this whole thing and it's obviously great fodder but there's some outright bullshit on this list. I'm on necessarily happy for sure. I mean houston texans. Need to be on here. They looked unbelievable week. One granted they played jaguars but they beat the shit out of them. Everyone thought they were gonna go and seventeen this year. I mean eleven okay then there Cardinals should definitely be up there. Yeah they absolutely dog walked team. Who won their division last year and everyone thought they were going to be better this year. They absolutely embarrassed. Titans they in nashville. They should definitely be in the top. And i have a question like how do you rank the kansas city chiefs above the super bowl champ tampa bay buccaneers now. Much different time. They played against each other. Obviously different offense alone for patrick mahomes. But they can't see chiefs double digits tampa bay buccaneers. I guess they had to come back and win that thing in the end but also like how do you you know how i don't know how many of these things work out. And we always must remember. Everybody gets upset about things about lists in rankings. And everything as you should. You always have to remember. Who's doing the voting in. Do we really give a fuck. What said person thinks now. Assume in those eighty-one people that are voting. We do have respect for at least a couple of people. Oh yeah. I would say that but there are some outcomes on this particular just the first. Nfl power rankings. That we have seen in the middle of the season. We will judge every single week by the way it is beautiful thing and we think. Espn for putting together to be completely transparent but there's some new big skill. There's people have no idea what they're talking about. You're talking about football. Makes me feel how. I felt when i was watching Monday night. I didn't know anything about football. Yeah i just realized chuck by the way needs to get hip to the monday night. He will love football people. Love the manning thing. It is literally a fire hose of football information. Coming right down gall it from the manning brothers and whoever their guest is. I absolutely enjoyed it and i would like to see the manning brothers put together power rankings. They probably wouldn't by the way because they have no idea what the teams are going to look like four four weeks from now five weeks from now. And that's kinda how we all feel that has ever been in a locker room like some teams. Mike completely flipped selection. Be great some teams might check out and stink. You have no idea what a team's going to become especially if you don't culture is but some things on there. I mean the steelers being below the bills just because you can't have. They already competed for who'd be higher on ceiling. People were picking the bills to win win or go to the super bowl this year. Still by the way still titan steelers go into their house but if this is just ranking where we currently stand. I mean literally. They had a scoreboard up for the eight in the five team to figure out who should be running tire in the eighteen scored more points than five. And i'm not saying and i love the bow blaming. I love the buffalo bills. And i think they could change and continue to only get better through the season. They have a bunch of stars. I believe in josh allen. I believe in being believe in mcdiarmid. But if you're just looking at this list for what it is it's like. They already competed. Little play games on matters it. Just what you think. And predict i guess. Is that what. We're the eighty-one smarter than the actual game itself because the game itself is what we're talking about. I thought yeah. I mean i. I don't understand it. it's gotta make you feel a little bit better about the colts. The number three seattle seahawks where the team that took them out. I was saying the number one chelsea and team looks unbelievable. And now that. I'm big fan. Russell wilson to after his monday night manning performance. I'm i like seahawks. Upper twelve deserve to. You know what i mean. Oh yeah the twelfth. Deserve their at home. This weekend against titans Yes titans. I'm a better russell wilson until further notice as well. He's one of the people that i'm betting on until further notice arizona cardinals also a team. I'm betting on until further. Notice their minus four and a half at home. With the vikings mike zimmer and kirk cousins allegedly just watch film for the first time ever together. I think the cardinals at home. That seems like a right bet i do. Not know is going to be like the vikings they still get delving. Cook but jonah jones jay boys boys completely forgot. They got a brand new defense chandler jones five sacks out there eating as well collar murray and cliff kingsbury seem to have a different attitude. Different tone this year as they did in the past. Aj green andre hopkins teams either. The oh man okay. So we will bet on seattle seahawks at home against the tennessee. Titans believe that's four and a half as well Five hundred seventy five and a half. that's very small. I mean. I i got i got sick but i want to say that good. Five half seems to be a lot but the back in the building for the first time in eighteen months in the way. Russell wilson looked in. Maybe that off season did bring them more together. Maybe they were forced to have real conversations with each other about how things are going and what needs to happen and how things need to go. I just believed that the seahawks after russell wilson's performance not only dunking on the colts. A couple times which. I believe that have a great defensive. We'll also transform here but also what he did on monday. i manning. that's i want to bet on. Yeah but you got to think that variables got two boys work in this week and fired up and you've talked about before how would say like i..

"Team meetings practices. You're in the building you feel it. What's the vibe in there. What is joey. Borough like as a leader of that team. It seems like he is the picture. Perfect guy that you would want to be leading the cincinnati bengals over there. Yeah i think just a good way to i guess Judge this team. Is you know carton. Kevin says it's a different feeling than they've ever had They feel like this group is as close as they've ever felt and Yeah i mean we're just a lot of worship bunch of guys on that love hanging out at each other competing off the field And yeah i mean we gotta pull on weapons with joe Joe joe medicine t higgins. You go on and on We we've got a lot of talent on this team. And i think You know the city of cincinnati. Ashby really excited For the time in a while. Because i think We have a pretty good chance of making the play austin and hopefully making a run for the for the super bowl. I now continue trying to get you guys. Indoor practice continuing to try to give alfred adding chill. You're not allowed to laugh too young. I you'll get fucking fired for the head. Talk evan playing in the sec. You obviously went to some pretty crazy environments first week year. Nfl career the bengals have a rabid fan base. Like did it feel any different. When you're out there in overtime to kick game winner or when you got and kicked as everything else kind of just fade away like could you feel how big of a moment that was. I tell you what. I feel like I feel more confident in in my kicking than ever i'd say right now I know i saw i guess kind of a a replay of the clip. And they kind of me. I guess smiling before the kick. Yes chilling chill. And so obviously i feel i feel most confident i ever have kicking the football and so just running out in the field I kind of knew. There's no doubt it's going to go in and you know we're gonna start season often enough so that has to feel so good good for you. Dude i'm so incredibly happy for you. Congrats on special teams in the league. In your first ever game. I've no idea what next week's going to look like. But i'm sure it's going to be a little bit of a downfall unless you get another game winner. Just keep doing this thing. Maybe seventeen straight games player of the week. I appreciate your joining us. Good luck over their boss. You know appreciate it. Hey tell kevin in cole. Clark and darren in everybody that we said hello over there.

"I reminded my age from from kevin huber clark harris all the time. They told me that they could be. My dad. seems pretty funny. Yeah huber in. I got drafted same year. He still doing it obviously. And harasses an absolute. Gee i absolutely love that guy. And i liked that they snap. That thing and kick did after zimmer called a out was that plan did you guys did huber tell you guys like even if a timeout goes. If that doesn't come we're going to get a rapid narrow. Was it like a little bit of a miscommunication there. We one hundred percent. We know going into it if they call time out. We're going to take a little practice. Kick absolutely y'all might have done that. An indie practice never heard anybody. You may get you show. You're gonna stroke stroke the next one you visit you kind of learn from it And come back until the next one. So yeah i think mulligan is always good. I mean it was always great so much. The dash and made it a rule. And that's what zim was so pissed off about so the refs it depends on when they call time out. That might be his fault and get it in earlier than if you get too close to the snap. Time in the ref can't get in there. You can get a practice kick. How'd you feel your stroke in the ball. Seemed like you were so confident so comfortable so relaxed has been an easy transition into the nfl football in the nfl game for you. Yeah i think it's It's been a pretty easy transition. I mean the writers. The same witness is college prides Hashes are moved in. Makes it a little easier for me. Honestly and the operation is just is clean with with kevin. Clark i just make make my job easier than than it really is. What did you do. He played soccer. You have ken. And there's i assume you've gone to a lot of kicking camps and there hasn't been a lot of fields that you've been on where anybody could touch you write it. That is probably been your life. I don't want to say. I probably had a similar situation but when i see a ball explode off your foot on like this guy. Murders the ball. Have you just always had a massive lag was at your gift and soccer and that you know you're going to get into football or did a football coach. cu slamming. Hey hey you want to take three steps and make a bunch of money or do you run a run ten miles or make a bunch of money out of that process come about yeah probably like a lot of kickers started out playing soccer super young age and played in my whole life but it really start kicking in so my older brother He started kicking when he was a ninth grade. I was a fifth grade and this is pretty cool and then he got a scholarship. Offer to Louisiana tech to go play and kind of went. I really saw that. There was more. I guess after high school if i wanted to work hard and and really training get good At kicking in. So that's whenever. I guess you could say put my head down and started working to get as good as i really could. And i'm just super happy that i picked this whole kicking thing up that song. I couldn't imagine a better. I guess spot to be. Honestly it's it's working out thus far. I mean there's going to be a bunch of adversity that you're going to have to get through and they'll become you know mental toughness tests all the time you pass the first one like i'm excited for you to continue to go because you are so incredibly talented the ball if you if you want to know what a big leg looks like from the time. He kicks the ball. How fast acting gets to the fucking net. Okay like there's guys around the league that they'll hit the ball and that thing sitting in that quicker than everybody else goes. That ball seems like it is hitting the net immediately after leaving your foot in that gives you a lot more space by the way because if the ball is going faster you have less time for it to get off trajectory. You're an absolute weapon. I'm so happy for you. I'm so happy for the bengals and congrats on one. Afc special teams player of the week. I wanna ask you about a couple of your coaches. Real quick code anderson c. Ever say anything fucking stupid over there. I love coal He'll mess me every now and then but he He's one of the guys that kind of harsh me up he. He's kind of hype man and every time we talk about. Somebody's like how you think this guy is only. He's pretty good. He's like you better. He's been good to me so for those. That don't know called. Anderson was my pp plenty tear for like four or five years. I think he's the montana this guy. He's the montana. But he's an absolute legend in. Darren still special teams coordinator over. There is still doing it. how do it house. Their hair slicked back perfect. Not moving dance. Been great for me. Just learning from him Shoes probably the by what you say. He's doing the longest out of anybody right now. He's been around a long time. yes so just. Learning from him has been great I mean we'll see how long he's going to be in this coaching thing. But know. He's still here. When when i'm still here hopefully ten years. He my first conversation with him. He told me to never a football again. If you wanna remind him of that obviously since then he and i built up a great relationship because we played the bengals every year in preseason but at the senior bowl. i'm there as a kicker. Has anybody ever been able to do both in the nfl pat. He's at me like how no they haven't. You're at the senior border kicked field goals. If i were you i would never put a football. And i said thank you sir very nice you and then he said i'm trying to get you combine. I think getting combine. He runs the combine thing and then obviously get drafted the pont. We run into each other every single year. Great guy big ass fucking brain. I love that man. I love code anderson as well. And i'm so incredibly happy for you and the boys the team over there evan.

"Us from his home in beautiful idaho with great internet. Ladies and gentlemen coaches up segment with head coach will go on there. Yeah let's go. let's go. Hey look good you look. You're rocking that. Nfl pa collegiate. Collegial to the you got back into coach coaches college. Kids coached him up a little bit. Two thousand eighteen went in there and stop the american team or the national team and now they deal either one. Whichever one you were represented coach. Great to see you. You look amazing. How is the weekend watching games as your first weekend is a retired outright watching games with. Did you get antsy. Did you hear the national anthem. Did you want to get back out there. How was it it was. It was awesome especially with no stress. I could just sit back and pick apart. Every you know everything that everybody was on. Watch my brother team. My little brother coaches at the broncos had a huge win over the new york giants so fired up about that amazing weekend. Football absolutely amazing and so much. Good stuff there But again i you know. I miss the relationship. Part the competition part of it. But it's awful nice not having that stress okay. So sunday morning. I woke up and i was gonna hit the i want. My backyard and the trees were blowing sideways from the wind in the flag was destroyed out like this. I was like man. I am so thankful that. I don't have to wake up on sunday mornings. Open the hotel window in trying to find flag on top of the building and seeing that things straight out and be like well. Today is going to be terrible. I that those stresses those little anxiety moments not being in your life so much better. I don't think anybody understands what sundays like whenever you just like. I'm a fan. All of a sudden you know no clogged arteries you know takes years off your life especially when you know when i get you. You'd open the blinds check for flag to see what the weather was doing. And i'd get a call from pete ward and it'd be like a chuck i know it's raining and sleeting sideways but You know tax payers paid for that roof to be opening. Jimmy can have the roof. And i and i don't think it's a competitive disadvantage. Nobody does so. That's what we're doing. You know the other great thing about that stadium is my first home game there and preseason one o'clock game right sunshine and it's a thousand degrees outside in the suns glaring down on our sideline in our in our opponents opponents are in are in the shade and i have done. I asked johnny scott. I said what's going on here. I can't see. I can't see the fueled. Why are we on this side. And they're in the shade. Oh man as you get an answer telling did you get an answer. I remember you were trying to. He's only one hundred. One hundred six are silent and we check the temperature on our ponant sidelining. It's seventy five degrees. I remind said. Hey voice hi boys hydrate. Oh man i remember. In by the way we had to have the entire. We had our equipment managers holding things over the bench. I mean and the other side is literally just tossed in sunflower seeds. And i remember. I think in this money just made its way into the locker room and it might not have been real but i think chuck it asked like that should be our sideline. It feels like that should be over there and then obviously there was a massive business conversation about the people of money. That's being paid to be behind ours our our bench as opposed to the opponents benchers thing and i think that was immediately when you knew like okay being head coach is there's some shit that you've gotta deal with. I mean the pre-game music the saen the entire situation the roof. I mean it is just completely different ballgame. Let's talk about some head coaches in the nfl and this past weekend anything. You saw that you were impressed with like any coaching decisions from any young coaches that you thought was pretty good or is everything you kinda you kind of expected for instance urban meyer. They got their asses beat thereby coach. Dave and immediately afterwards it's like he's leaving the nfl. He's going to go to college. How do you view that whole situation. And how does urban you get that narrative away from him in would if you were urban meyer and you were asked about the situation. Would you say no. There's no chance to be going well knowing that there may be as a chance or do you think he's actually all in with the jaguars at this point. We'll the key there is when they asked him what his press conference. And anytime you drop your eyes and you answer like this and you don't look straight in there. He's totally committed to building that organization rebuilding that program You know there hasn't been many guys in college. Football successful coaches is as successful as urban meyer. I mean historically. He's got the best record ever of anybody in in college football But history tells us that a lot of those guys don't succeed in the national football league nick. Saving the best of the best goat won't be anybody like win more championships. Steve spurrier you can go on and on and on so. He's going to have this narrative around him. I long as he's down there until he gets thing turned around. Why chuck why is it hard. Why is it so hard to go from college. Nfl strictly because in college you can control everything and the nfl. It's a much different. Ballgame you coaching college at the you. When the you was the with a lot of personalities you've been able to make the transition in the nfl and have success. What is the big thing you think on. Why some of those top guys can't make it in the nfl from your perspective. There's a salary cap number. One you know shows ellery cabinet some of those university. I'm just kidding now. You know. I just think dealing with Everything that you have to deal with at the professional level especially the players you know you can deal with College athletes probably a little bit different and communicate with those athletes. A little bit different than you can. Maybe the professional athletes again. You mentioned it pat. There's a lot of things that are out of your control. I'm sure there's a lot of things that are out of urban control You've got to be tied at the hip with your gm. You guys got to be in lockstep. You know the three pillars. Jim.

The other team coming up in like talking to him almost i. Yeah there. there was a situation there with kicking happening. Where mcpherson just showed up and out. Eat a fifty seven yarder in fourth quarter. He hit a game winner. There i can't wait to chat with them but every time we point something like this out whether it's like the bengals on having a facility. It's not for me to be funny. This is me saying. Hey the fans in the nfl deserve better than what is happening. Here there is people out there that if they were to run the they would dream to run their dreams to run these teams if they were to have them. Let's assume that they'd be taking care of their fans better their team better and ultimately the fucking league better you know it's like the league doesn't want to deal with calvin johnson one of the greatest players of all time coming out and saying like yet this team i think in my eyes rob me on the you think roger goodell wants to hear you think. Roger goodell wants to know that there is a team in his league. That's worth billions and billions of dollars. That doesn't have the exact shit as most high schools potentially indifferent to. It's just like that is not something they want. So every time. I bring it up because evans coming on a bunch of bengals fans dufuses tweeted like an indoor practice joke. It's like it's not joke dude like this is. This is actually me trying to help you up motherfucker. Hey i think you're owners should be doing more for your team and for you as a fan because of how much you have dedicated them blind loyalty to these people which i appreciate. I respect that thing. You need those types of fans. But also whenever i say something like this i'm saying it because like hey the league deserves better and not just leak. The fans are better. Anything like that just like bazo. Getting into the league hired. Some people say we're billionaire boot-lickers for fucking talking about as being good for the nfl. It's like hey richest dude on earth giving into my favorite league good news. Yeah okay. I i'm not gonna become a fan of that team. But a guy who has two percent of his net worth would be what it takes to buy an nfl team. Let's assume he's going to be giving a lot back to the league into the game and everything that we love. That's the that's the type of shit. That i think that we talk about that kinda gets kinda misconstrued just like the pittsburgh pirates fans that are coming out me for telling them to sell the team team fucking stinks in other people if you tweeted me talking about all. You don't even know anything about the. I don't know why don't cause team has stunk for so fucking long decide not to be interested in it and also got by ticket. There's only one hundred people at the god damn game. You're hurting the team. More by not buying tickets and the mlb looks terrible. Pittsburgh looks like a terrible sports thing. I feel like a lot of people that end up fighting against us. It's like urinating because we're actually on your side in this entire thing but you're just blind law the zona we know more than you. We know about the prospects. We know where they went to college. We know how they hit the monitors we know more than you pat. I know i know you do you pittsburgh doofus and i appreciate the fan of the pirates but the thing that i know is the players that i do know none of them playing for the parts you know. Why because maybe their mind leaks but if they're good in the majors if they're good for the pirates they're fucking running away from pittsburgh or they're selling them out of pitch and just like all these things that we talk about on a regular basis the town johnson thing the indoor facility this shit. It's like i don't think.
"minkah fitzpatrick" Discussed on GSMC Fantasy Football Podcast
"So it's going to be. It's going to be an interesting game. I think it's going to be kind of one of those again. Middle the road matchups for the steelers. I think it is going to be a little bit tough though when it comes to running the football but i do think that steelers will be able to throw it a little bit. Because i think there's some question marks in the bear secondary so i think the receivers do well here. Maybe even the tight ends to I think it might be a little bit of a struggle for nausea but will just have to wait and see again offensive. Line is good for the steelers. They're going to be a good team. I really think that's what it depends. That really is what the season's going to hinder on the offensive line. Because what i saw from. Ben in the preseason. I think really showed you something. I think he's motivated. I think he's going to go out there and he's going to have a pretty good season. It's just the offensive line is going to be the problem. If the steelers don't have a good season that's because the defense is going to do good that events going to keep them them games always as long as they don't give a big plays you know that the secondary in the offensive line. Those are the two major problems. I think with the steelers so yeah i think that if they can hold up against his bears pass rush. Benzine have good game here. It's moving onto week. Ten they take on the lions. And i think that is a very favorable matchup. I think they'll do more of the same of what they did. In the week. To preseason game i think that they will do very well offensively. I think nausea has a good game. The receivers have good games. I think ben has a really good game all around. Good game for the offense and definitely start the steelers defense against the lions because the lions offense is not going to be that good. Jared goff struggled against the steelers defense when he was a member of the rams and i expect him to do that again. As a member of the lions now they are a inferior team to the rams so very positive match-up across the board for the steelers so moving onto week number eleven. They go to la to take on the chargers on sunday night. This is gonna be a tough match up here. I think for the defense. I do think that herbert's gonna portable outta points in this game. I know that herbert's offensive. Line is obviously going to be improved. I think that they will be able to somewhat minimize the steelers. Pass rush also think. Herbert can take advantage of the secondary. Obviously minkah fitzpatrick back there. So you have to be careful in. Joe hayden is still a respectable player. But i do think that the charges will put up points against the steelers defense. Maybe the steelers isn't the best play that week. Not on the other side. I think again all depends on the offense of line and all depends on how the chargers defenses. They were not a good run team last year so if they don't improve their i think nausea has a good game here and you know we'll have to see what the secondary is like. I think that you know the the team is going to be better. This is going to be a playoff team. Derwin james is coming back. They drafted asante samuel junior. They got chris harris back there. So you know secondary is going to be respectable and you know i. I think it's going to be a little bit. Tough for the steelers offense but i think they could definitely put up some points here I don't expect to have a future performance here. I think he does. Okay i think the receivers do okay. But i don't expect anybody to go off in this game for the steelers other than maybe nausea. So that's my thoughts on that game moving onto week twelve. They go to cincinnati to take on the bengals now the last time that they played in cincinnati that was future performance. It was on monday night last year and they played really bad now. I don't again. This is late in the season. So i talked about the wear and tear cannon happen or will it happen. It is definitely possible but it's just kind of a wait and see approach but you know. I just think that the steelers will be able to. They'll be more prepared for this game. I feel like they'll do well. They're going to put up points of bengals or not that very good of a defensive team on the other side. It's going to be interesting to see how the bengals handle the steelers. Pass rush this season. You know with the supposed better offensive line. Now you add some more weapons to the offense and hopefully joe. Borough is back healthy. But i expect the steelers defense to do. While the bengals swelled. Joe struggle against the steelers defense. The one time he did play them last year. So i kind of expected to be more of the same if the bengals offensive line hasn't improved. So you know more of the same from the first matchup so Yeah that's my thoughts on that game moving onto the next match up. You got the baltimore. Ravens come into heinz field to take on the steelers. This'll be a four twenty five game on. Cbs both games. I would say we're entertained. At least the first one was very entertaining. The second one was interesting to say the least. It was the wednesday night football game. Yeah i hope that never happens again. But i i'd say the steelers defense is smart. Play i feel like their defense. Plays well very well against lamar. And i feel like it's going to be more the same there. So i think their defenses smart play and again you know the steelers offense going up against the ravens defense. I don't expect anyone to go off in this game. On the steelers side I mean benz. Had you know a lot of success over the course of his career against the ravens. I don't really know if he's going to have his best game here. I think he does all right. I think najji. I think he's going to be the guy that shows are going to try to pound the rock within this game. Because when i look at the ravens i think more about their secondary and their linebackers. You know i don't really. I mean they got delays campbell. There who is respectable you know I just think that they you know their defenses built more. So on their secondary as opposed to their front four. But you know we'll see what happens with that so it's kind of middle of the road match up here for the steelers you know in. Some areas is unfavorable in some areas. Favorable i think the defense is probably the most positive play that week going up against the more and that often so moving onto week fourteen looking at the schedule though they.
"minkah fitzpatrick" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"Are over. The cap seemed to do these employees way down the track. I think it took about three weeks with juju smith. Schuster's one and melvin ingram. Both of them. So i wanted to win. They going to actually be able to update then numbers. So if you checking the captain you going you know what we're reporting on behind the curtain is wrong. It's not it's just in terms of you ought to go through and have a look at what actual you know deal has been done there. So the steelers. I guess to to summit out the steelers saved three point nine five million against against the cap. The she like. That's the way that over the cap saying whereas if you actually look what it is. It's six point three four million so as a couple of technicalities michigan. Even as i'm saying it sort of gets a little bit confusing in terms of what these numbers are and and they do seem to move around a lot. Now the next thing. I wanted to cover off because it does affect the steelers is the jamal adams deal so have a not for me. Jamal adams after five months of negotiations guarantees Basically signed a four year extension with the seattle seahawks to a maximum value of seventy two million. And as part of that he gets the million in guaranteed. So you're looking at an average day. You know all of its nine point. Two five million of tilt my head right now as saying numbers so there's a twenty million dollar signing bonus and then there's the avi guarantees salary of eighty million there. Now what you're saying there is. He's obviously getting more than half. He's contract just started. But i think you're working out you know within the fifty to fifty five percent range guaranteed which is not bad for a safe you know. He's twenty five is clearly proven player. He's a pulse rusher as well. While that is different to the position of minkah fitzpatrick this starts to sit a bit of a market for minka. If jamal can get seventy two. And he's going to be in the mix on interested to say what the steel is going to be able to do to. Ray sign me fitzpatrick and i think we're going to be looking at a number. That's latin these where. I think it needs to be beneficial. Obviously that structure the deal intense guarantees in your barnes's and roster bonuses and workout bonuses and incentives. More you but it is interesting to think about what these actually nine year end the study. Millions positive thirty five million. Dollar guaranteed to simmons justin simmons of the of the broncos who is bit more that free safety play. It will be interesting to see what jessie bates. The bengals gets as well You know entire matthew at the chase you know. Hey potentially talkative. Eighteen million dollars going forward according to over the cap so ease. It is a little bit interesting as i site thinking about what this might mean because the safe divisions really hot. You've gotta you know. They all seem to get lumped together in terms of they contract values all but the they all those different positions. And that's the thing that's a bit bit hotter to think about now when i think of minka fitzpatrick and you look at some of the deals that the that are being done. landon collins united. He signed deforming. W he's more of a strong sites euro kevin by. He's more of a phrase saiki. You can have to think that minka is probably going to want. I think the millennia five. I think what needs to make it work for the steelers into spread that that cap number out and he's probably seek she deal and i think prominent guarantee him. Let's say you're about if you're gonna do that in you. Look at the numbers from jamal adams. Let's say you guarantee minka nine nine and a half the seeks so you're talking in the realms of fifty seven million dollars potentially Yeah and maybe a ninety million dollar contract or something like that actually probably would be above. That ninety. nine million. Crazies might sound cer- this thing. It's that we start to get in the ballpark of what mean fitzpatrick's gonna cost but the great news it salary cap is going up salary. Cap growing up As the years go by obviously it's going up next year this ceiling ceiling there these towards six or two point. Oh two right million and then we'll continue from there like my prediction is by twenty twenty three essays away looking at over two hundred twenty million dollars. Suddenly you know and that's that's that's almost thirty five. What's actually above thirty. Five million more than than it is right now depending on what exactly rounded to. That's a significant amount of money. Like that's kinda getting tj for free plus a couple of other guys. News room then That wraps up hot. One of of the spikes steals warren dress appadoo. We're gonna talk quickly. That the tj walked contract as well and then we're going to talk about what options there off the pittsburgh steelers now but biz of.
"minkah fitzpatrick" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"Where is the weakness on this defense. There is one in europe. There has to be one. No defense is perfect. So where's the weak spot. Well you would think going into the season that the weak spots going to be the corner opposite of joe haden because it's the least known it really is so i would list that i'm not saying that it's bad but if you have to pick a week this you've gotta pick what mak- fitzpatrick nocco say that. And then the way yet. He was used torrero edmonds to his drinks. The only other thing i would say. Is you if you have some question marks now at inside linebacker. I expect evan. Bush like i said i think he meant more to that defense than what people realize when he was gone. I've gone on and on about the sax even though it wasn't him getting this axe but he is coming off the injury. And now you have. Roberts playing next to who i've confidence in but that's what you have so i'm not saying either. Either of those spots are bad. But if i had to pick a weakness it would be one of those two and when we're talking about a weakness here people it's to me it's starting it's starters it's nine we can talk about death. Every team has depth issues at some positions. So the hind minka and edmunds yet. not good. we'll put it that way not good but at the same time. We're not talking about an assuming. An injury is going to happen. So where's the weakness in. I agree with david's cornerback. I do feel like joe. Haden still has some juice left in the tank but who's going to be opposite him. That's a huge question. Mark and then you come down that it then it could boil down to if the secondary can't hold up and speaking of the scenarios. I did this narrative that joe hayden would have more interceptions in minkah fitzpatrick in twenty twenty one. That was one of my series for the thirty scenarios. Thirty days in the more. I type is. I was thinking about this. The more i started talking myself out of either one of these guys having lot because they're going to any other quarterback it's definitely a concern. I do think this defense. If melvin ingram my gosh if he can be a part of just half the player rotational guy he and highsmith and then why all and then then front the front of kidding me with kale back. They're all back chris warmly. I meant i meant theory. Very bragging. warmly can actually stay healthy and actually contribute this season. And that's something that he was banged up a lot last year. No one really knew what they had. So i mean someone might not have understood what i said with the whole thing. We haven't seen sampling really played next to devon bush because he came in four david bush last year and played. Well we haven't seen the two of them together. That's kind of what i was saying. Not that. I think it'll be bad. But i've said this many times and i said this is something like brian. Anthony davis would say and and therefore he started saying when you're talking about weaknesses in the steelers defense. It's like talking about the ugliest supermodel on the runway. The steelers defin- yeah. They're going to be legitimately really really good. And you just hope that. They're good enough to the point where they can start to get creative on defense inc moving minkah fitzpatrick around bathing quarterbacks. And i i just. I see stats in the offseason. It was insane in terms of quarterbacks avoiding minka fitzpatrick like leg. I mean it's unbelievable on. He's he's missed out on so many of these top defenders in because they they set a number of targeted x number of times and he so rarely targeted like twenty five targets for the season. It's insane what did you happen to check out that podcast. I put it in the slack. Channel that it was the videos like four minutes in length. Mike tomlin join. Sean mcveigh and having the hearing him. Talk about just fitzpatrick while we're on the topic of defensive action defense. He said i'd sees it. I spent so much time with mega his badgering in a lot of times. You doing. He said i'm asking questions. I want to know what he seeing on certain plays because he knows how smart it hell intelligent minkah fitzpatrick is as a football player. I mean just it's tremendous stuff. It's absolute tremendous yet. Check out all right. Let's go to the last one here. The twenty twenty one. Nfl draft class won't have an immediate impact a lot of people. Not saying i'm one of them have said that they think that this draft class from najji harris all the way to traynor would nine drafted players. They're going to be good and they're going to be a draft class. It will have a lot of impact players eventually. The maybe not so much right away. I yes nausea. Harris is the the outlier here. Because i think everyone's expecting him to step in right away and be an impact player. Then get the friar music in a lot of people are wondering are they gonna run lot. Two tight end sets are they gonna have. That's where he's out there and iran's not we don't know it can kendrick green when the job out of the gate we. Everyone's assuming that buddy. Johnson dan moore junior dan more. Everyone's like oh he's a developmental tackle. he's supposed to start We we're bad..
"minkah fitzpatrick" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"They have so much draft capital. If they're concerned about the chargers getting Justin Herbert a west coast kid in a west coast team. I just feel like the Miami Dolphins are GonNa move up and get that number three pick. It just feels like to me. They're not going to risk their future. Am I nuts? To get her right because I. I'm not convinced I'm not convinced. They're slam dunk in love with her, but I think it's one of those deals are like all right. We don't think anyone moving up. The doll if the charges are going to move up ahead of. Do you WANNA. Sacrifice other picks to make sure it's Herbert where we just sit pretty, it's OK well. We couldn't get Herbert Five. Let's take a left tackle that we love, and then let's come back at this at eight gene, or let's take to like. There's this feeling that there's a feeding frenzy for people to trade up to three or four, and it's really what it's coming down to forty eight hours ahead of time looks like it's a chess match between the Dolphin and the chargers. They gave a chicken like. Are you GONNA do it? Are we GONNA do? Are we going to say? Are you going to stay? I'd be fascinating to see the did, but you know the the the bears. A couple of years ago ended up one kick because they might have been a little nervous. That trubisky wouldn't have been there at three, so the go to I don't necessarily been need unless you think this guy is your quarterback for the next fifteen years like if the dolphins are sold unjust in Herbert, and it's no matter what we have to get him then yeah trip to three. But if they're like all right, if Herbert's off the board, we'll go a different direction than I. Don't think you mortgage any of those six. That's why you trade tunsil. That's why you trade minkah Fitzpatrick so. You have the luxury of building up those other physician. Peter Schrager just fantastic stuff? He'll be on the Fox sports radio. Jay Glazer Joel Klatt a draft. It's fantastic between glazer.
"minkah fitzpatrick" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"They liked him by the way there's some. Big Ben there. He is really big with a very big arm. He is is heavy. He can handle the north winter's veil like him. That's the first thing they're telling you the second thing they're telling you is the season's not over. Our offensive. Line is still excellent. Our defense young and talented just added minkah Fitzpatrick our schedules incredibly workable and our receivers are really really young and we're kind of trying to make it work but they're talented. This is a very important thing to think about teams. Look Schedules. Look at the Pittsburgh steelers schedule. This is really remarkable and I think this goes a long way in the decision to make the trade because you get big band. Big Ben's going to come back next year so it's about this year. Do we think we can win this year weeks. Four through ten for the steelers this year they've won road game at road game is at the chargers stadium. That will be a home game. They don't have a true road game from September thirtieth to November eleventh and take away as we can win and by the way at after you tell me they can't beat Cleveland Cincinnati Arizona the jets in Buffalo. They can't beat Johnson Rudolph. Listen Pittsburgh knows their personnel better than I do. Mason Rudolph big strong and was wildly productive in college and they seem at practice practice every day and I said something on the air yesterday that I want to retract because they've earned my respect and this move is telling me we watched this kid every day at practice practice. He's our future. This is why we drafted him. We're going to have to play them sooner than we thought big band coming back next year but we're looking at our schedule. We're looking at our offensive line. We're looking at our division by the way which is you know. Cincinnati's not real good. You're watching the browns last night you think they're unbeatable and Baltimore's to and all but they beat Miami Arizona. Do we really know everything about Baltimore so I'm going to retract this from yesterday. New Greenland pretty good so Seattle Seattle's eight of nine. I wasn't going to bail on the steelers but now big BEN's out season over I would. I'd like to retract that statement. I think the Pittsburgh steelers weeks four through ten no true road game winnable games after that still best offensive line in their division a coach will make the hall of Fame Excellent General Manager. They've added numerous. There's parts now. MINKAH fitzpatrick to the defense in a division with Cleveland Looked Awful Cincinnati probably is in Baltimore's good but they've played them twenty two times and Split Eleven and eleven..
"minkah fitzpatrick" Discussed on First Things First
"Welcome welcome back. We'll get to Ben Rothlisberger injury update in a second but first Monday night football Brown's jets Levian Bell catching short passes one guy miss hurdles over another for a seventeen eighteen yard gain agenda. I know you left that game saying okay. We talked about last year but he's nice with it. He's a cook football man. He was the only weapon I've been the only one and he's still found a way to give you one hundred twenty yards from scrimmage in a game where no one could do anything for the jets all right well. This guy did something for the browns. LBJ pulling a sensational one handed catch with jets defenders all over him. He's got amazing hands. He practiced it. All the time spends a lot of a time added he works on his overall hand strength. He's just does that Jerry Rice drill with the bricks and everything we had on the show the video tremendous wide receiver receiver ready to have a really good seasons body's feeling good and was Baker Mayfield away. You can throw a ball nick. They should continue to be special hang on they'll wasn't done Qatar turns back yard pass into an eighty nine yard. Touchdown reached speeds up to twenty one point seven miles an hour on on this play. Oh yeah he's a little injured. The free safety was the only one on the field but Odell took away the angle. That's the reason why he cut back on. He wasn't going to get into a foot race because watch the safety the angle on him and then l. let me eat that and safety can't change directions quickly enough flip side Williams likes having those safeties lineup eighteen to twenty yards behind the line of scrimmage and this is what it's trying to prevent but when you're an athlete like Odell you're drawn dead with that much open space in front of them all right moving on so the worst case scenario has officially unfolded for the Pittsburgh steelers. Ben Rothlisberger will have surgery on his right elbow and will miss the remainder of the season. Ben Released a statement saying this assist shocking and heartbreaking for me to miss this much of a season and feel like I'm letting down so many people I can only trust God's plan but I'm completely determined to battle title through this challenging comeback stronger than ever next season. The steelers committed three years to me this off season and I fully intend to honor my contracts and reward them with championship level play. I feel my heart. I have a lot left to give all right nick. What does the future hold for Big Ben? Have we seen the last of him in Pittsburgh I. I don't think we've seen the last minute in Pittsburgh I take him at his word that he's going to try to come back and honor his contract and the steelers then we'll honor the thirtyish million per year. They owe him going forward over the next two who seasons after this year on that contract. I do think that win big bins done playing we will say the last playoff game. Ben Rothlisberger overplayed in was that shocking home defeat to the Jacksonville Jaguars after the steelers thirteen and three season in twenty seventeen. I I think that while Ben is planning on coming back the team he comes back to is going to be one of the least talented teams. He's ever played for just like the team he's on right. Now is one of the least talented teams ever played for big. Ben will be aged thirty eight. He turns thirty eight in March. Only seventeen quarterbacks in league history of even even started a season at that that age or older and I think you were seeing already admittedly very early parts of the season a deterioration ration- in his play that you would not expect to all of a sudden jump in the other direction after an injury and lastly Big Ben is not Tom Brady and he is not drew brees. When it comes to health nutrition working out you can throw Eli and probably Philip rivers in there too who both take care absolutely and and now big Ben has had a playing weight that has fit his playing style? He's a rugged quarterback. He takes hits. He shakes off hits. He's a warrior warrior in the pocket all those things but a guy like that that's going to now be away from football longer than he's been at any point in his life. The Guy who two years ago two years ago was contemplating retirement the idea that he's going to attack this rehabilitation with the victory would at twenty five. I don't see it and so I it's devastating for the steelers. He's saying all the right things but I think the best days of big banner behind him and I think the steelers a super bowl contender with big ben is their a quarterback those the book the chapter got closed on that of the book closed on that Midwest rejoin the. I don't think he's going to retire. I believe in that. He's GonNa play again again. I just don't think the team is going to be good enough or he's going to be good enough. Yeah I disagree with you and it's it's impossible to get to where bin is is in his football career and everything that he's been through members in that bad motorcycle accident. Yeah and I've seen been play her so much so to me. You know what you're saying about the other quarterbacks and everything is true. Tom Brady drew brees Philip rivers ally these guys are in tremendous tremendous shape but none of those guys are athlete. Ben Rothlisberger is none of them have the talent Ben Rothlisberger does if you ask all them and and they were telling the truth Tom Brady eight men. Would you rather take Ben Rothlisberger tools and Tom won a lot in everything even like yes. His physical skills is big as he is as Nimble as he is in the pocket he can throw a ball any type of way. You want to talk about Patty mahomes varying the speed. Tell me what Ben Rothlisberger can't do throw it to the flat. Throw it across the Middle Intermediate put some loft on it bomb someone deep down the middle he could make every type of throw. He's been every type of game in the guy's got got heart you don't get to where he is and play the way he's played and unless you have a big heart and this will be one of the biggest challenges of his career and this down about being in shape you don't have to go out and take over this whole new regiment all too sudden become a Vegan and everything hey cam. Newton went out camping gray say Kelly camp came. Throw the ball so the nutrition part don't have throwing the ball and that's all we want to do unless you come back during the read option or something but I believe that Ben Roethlisberger will respond to this yes he did talk about retirement a couple years ago but obviously he made a recommitment to football and the Pittsburgh Organization. It's hard for me to believe over the next three years. They won't be in the playoffs. If they get their defense fixed. They'll be back in the playoffs there wide receiver coach Grace Sherman. He'll get those guys fixed if they give him one year in free agency. There's a bunch of veteran players that no ray sermon no his reputation bell come there in play in Pittsburgh for less money. It's not Tommy John Surgery. I believe been bounces back because all that fitness and everything it doesn't matter when you have the type of skill set and it speaks to what type of talent that been the you'd have to go down a whole bunch of quarterbacks the ones that are older and talk you too Aaron Rodgers and say who has more talented Ben Rothlisberger. None of those other guys do the only ones got more arm talent is Aaron Rogers. What about the state of the team? What do you think the team is will affect whether he comes back or how quickly he comes back? I think we can I. I'm almost ready to just put aside the idea that he won't come. I'm back. I don't think you release that statement and have the contracts that he just signed why because if they have an atrocious season is and I think it will be attributed even if it's unfair to simply to him not being there right now I I you know I was skeptical on them even with him but now if if they go five and eleven people will say a lot of people say well yeah of course I mean you lost your starting quarterback. What do you expect you lost a quarterback? WHO's been there? They've never had a losing losing record the entire time he's been the quarterback the Pittsburgh steelers the only losing record the steelers have had this century was the year before he got there which allowed them to draft him in the middle of the first round fourteenth. Whatever was eleven pick out of Miami Ohio so no? I don't think he's coming back. I believe him on that. Now is the are are they going to the same GM or are they going to have the same coach. What type of team or are they going to have? We know they're not going to have a first round. Pick this year. Because the MINKA fitzpatrick trade instead they're going to have him replacing replacing the first round pick which will go to your point about upgrading the defense second-year player out Alabama but no. I believe he's coming back. I just don't think this team has a talent to offset a coming off. Injury deteriorated Ben Rothlisberger Chris Obviously disagrees what team could recover from losing three superstars in less than two years L. Bell Free Agency Gone Abie shot himself out yelled himself out of the bill and Ben Rothlisberger her when they start looking to the short future. Ben Rothlisberger is going to be a part of that all right. They will get their defense fix if they get their defense fix that is the key because then and coming back you don't have to put all that pressure on been the throw for five thousand when being comes back though I can guarantee you over four thousand yards next year they will get Otherwi- wide receivers Dante Moncrieff is I told people I'm glad twitter found out but I've been tone since the preseason he is not the answer. He is not a number to receive. Don't make him a bad person but he is not the answer opposite of James Washington and Juju Smith Schuster so I do believe Ben and we'll come back and I don't believe that the that the nutrition in all of those things have anything to do with the heart and the guy the size it he wants to be able to do something he doesn't have to change much of his regiment. Always gotTa do is listened to his physical therapist right. Ben Rothlisberger is one quarterback back in the off season when he last game when he takes his cleats off a lot of times he used to tell the quarterback first time he put them back on is when they go to training camp is because he is that gifted people might say oh he's lazy. We have had people in sports like that. We kept the Golfer. He don't practice a whole bunch right now. Oh He's dominating the PGA tour the guys gift. You might not like it. You might not be Your Cup of tea of course the Eaten Regiment and all that would he be better yes he he would but he doesn't have to speak so how talented he is all right the big news this morning. Ben Rothlisberger has done for the season steelers are Oh in two so we shall see what lies ahead for the organization.
Minkah Fitzpatrick Wants Out Of Miami
"Patriots are so scary with Antonio Brown around that Dolphin cornerbacks are asking to be traded before they have to play on Sunday. minkah Fitzpatrick is has requested and received permission to find a trade somewhere the dolphins would like a first round pick and I'm curious to God's which one do you think is more likely to happen this week at the dolphins lose like that again right or Lamar Jackson and looks like that again because a lot of people are diluting the Lamar Jackson performance because it happened against the Miami Dolphins and a lot out of quarterbacks in that league could play very well if you don't apply any pressure in the dolphins did not apply any pressure throughout that game because they've got a defensive line with a total of before this game of five and a half career sacks for the entire defensive line but which do you think is more likely because the dolphins opens have never given up that many points regular season game and the Ravens had never scored that many in a regular season game and if you believe that the dolphins looking like that again as a possibility fifty nine to ten you're looking at the worst team we've ever seen if they could lose two consecutive home

"I don't think he's gonna be it would be disappointing in terms of considering what everyone tells you about what Josh Rosen ceiling is. But say it's Fitzpatrick, you at least know you have a quarterback that can get the ball in the playmakers hands. Now he can also put the ball in the opposing team's hands quite often, but he can at least you have a lot of speed on this team. Assuming everyone gets back to full health. You have fast. Albert you have to grant you have some real speedsters. You just need to put the ball in their hands. Big question Mark for me right now is edged rushers. We literally I've gotten rid of every edge rusher that we had last year. But Quinn was a Quin was a display. They were all disappointments. But I, I can't wait, who was. He's gone. He's now in Tennessee Quin believe was traded to the Cowboys who are your rushers, reading, BJ's, article berry Jackson and no one is called the BJ. And he he literally said that all six of the as we had last year gone. Yeah. Who are your starting to answer it now? But why are you giving everybody nicknames today? I like good. But BJ's also. Forever. No one's ever called them BJ's. I think people call them BJ bar on a Friday night. BJ no brew. I don't think he would like it either. So I don't think so. I think anyone likes the good nickname. Real name is barreled. Probably, you know that there's a there's an Andy Cohen, the rights for the dolphins website. And I just imagined it as Andy Cohen from Bravo. Yeah. It'd be great to me if Andy Cohen from Bravo, was the one writing. But like he's on the dolphins beat. I read an interesting report that Brian floor is wants to play minkah Fitzpatrick at linebacker which is cool. I mean, sure. Tackler row, you got your hand up as if you want to weigh in on this minkah Fitzpatrick thing. No, no, no. But you know what? He actually goes much Tajik here. Like a who's who of celebrities and Roy's, like super coy about it. And it doesn't tell us like, oh yeah, Justin Bieber was at my church this weekend because that's happened. Yeah. Justin bieber's been his, his pastor married. Kim Kardashian Connie. I know. And there's a lot of music at your church. Right. Right. Roy allow music. Oh, they have a worship time. Just. Like what's mingka's demeanor at church? I don't know if you want to give it away. Spoke. Yes, the gave a little bit of a word. It's brute church runaway name to church. Yeah. You gave a little bit of a word at the church in use us. Cool. Where are you in the realm of celebrities, you like why? No, you you're the guy right down on the sound guy..

"Things are break in right? Are they got a quarterback the one that we talked about being exciting? This is going to be fun. You have a quarterback. That is true. Yeah. It did happen. They have to fits Magic's. They lead the league in fits Magic's. You didn't loud. That's going to be awkward now. He's going to be a beef. You think they're going to be able to copyright beef. It was the first thing that I thought about like, whoa. The locker room dynamic here. Ryan Fitzpatrick and minkah Fitzpatrick Minka owns the copyright to fits magic. Even though. No one calls them fits magic. I thought he got rejected on did. He I think. Okay. Well, either way mingka's under the impression that's his nickname and run Fitzpatrick has been running with fits magic for feels like twenty Dame years, quite honestly. So Ryan Fitzpatrick signs two years eleven million. But he hasn't sentence that can get them up to seventeen twenty in that range. Yeah. Do you think the incentives are to throw interceptions? Possibly give them the hardest. Technically allowed to do that. Can you give incentives for anything? I mean any fumble loss? Not just a fumble. If we keep it that doesn't count. I think the competition committee might have some sort of issue with it. It might be. It might be brought up in one of those meetings you reach twenty interceptions on the season. You hit that twenty million. This is exciting. We got one of the more exciting quarterbacks in league down here. Now in Miami. He's played for every team in the division. Is this for the good one? Why did it become fun? Just because he dressed up cool for one press conference. He's always been fun. He's a quarterback and went to Harvard. He's got a big beard. He's played for everybody. I think this is eighth team..

"Just like they've been in the last ten dolphins are in the spot the perfect spot in the draft where you. Kick your feet up. And you just see who falls to you like they did last year with minkah Fitzpatrick, they might end up. Yeah. That's right. Roy you kick your feet up. And you see who falls team you sit back put your hands behind your head. You're gonna take you take the best player available. It might be a quarterback might be a linebacker might be defense alignment put kick your feet up. See who falls to picking your? Can you get up why a war room, which kick you? I mean, it's just there's there's like that ten to fifteen range that kick your feet up and just wait and see who falls to you perfect range picture Bill. The only coaching Lee hu literally kicks his feet up. I think all the other thirty one coaches so scared that their feeder fairly on the ground. I I like the I like the idea of going after Bridgewater seeing what you have there. And if if this seem gets a seven nine record, obviously that's not good enough to get somebody like to. But it might be good enough for you to realize that you have that franchise quarterback considering what surrounding what would be surrounding teddy Bridgewater and seven and nine you still have assets. Go and trade up next year is much better quarterback class. You mentioned Jake from Justin Herbert would have probably been the number one overall pick this even ahead of Cuyler Murray had decided to come out and set of going back to Oregon. So there are three top line quarterbacks. Like, you can make the argument would be the number one overall pick this year next year is much deeper class. I think this is a. Smart move. It's inspired. I didn't know it was valuable because reports were that he was going back to New Orleans, and he's still may decide that. But I would be excited about the connection that devante Parker has with him. Because you can finally see what you have in that asset a quarterback that won't be afraid to try to get him the ball. Whether devante Parker is actually healthy enough to to be out there. Trying to get these passes from teddy Bridgewater remains to be question years left. Does brief heavy has think seventeen you think he's in. He's in the Brady Brady at least two or three. Yeah. I thought he was thought he was falling off. It may only go back to left if you think you Lance to and your teddy Bridgewater. Don't you stay? Well. It's a good decision for Bridgewater among the dolphins the saints. And I think the giants are making the play as well. I think Bridgewater would wanna start now anywhere little own in his hometown. I I think very anti. It'll be a big defeat for the dolphins. If they don't sign Bridgewater. Don't think there's any part of quarterbacks that are like man this backup gig. Sweet. I think there are chased annual is living the luggage paid a million dollars less just to chill..
