"Now we're talking with Chuck Esposito Racing sports director in Las Vegas station casinos. The the NFC West by my naked eye here appears to be Perceived as the most competitive division in the NFL. You've got four teams that all have fairly short odds to win the division. Rams. What 8 to 599 to five. Seahawks 5 to 2 Cardinals six For one tell me how Vegas sees this division and particularly the 49 ers. Yeah, it is. God, I think it is the toughest division. I think you know, in the off season you first had, um, the Rams make that big move to pick up Matt Stafford. They have a Super Bowl caliber defense, but they definitely had some question marks that quarterback so they do that They shot they signed to Sean Jackson to take the top off the defenses. You know, with some really good, talented wide receivers and cup and would And a young running back and acres. Um and you look at Seattle who? I guess it's, uh, they they didn't lose Russell Wilson, so they're really good. I think the big key for the Niners and they're right there. Kind of you know in that mix as well is that they need to stay healthy. They had so many injuries last year, I mean up and down both sides of the ball, especially On that defensive line. But you look at the young skill position players. They have their if it's aiyuk and Samuel and Kittle and and the running back that they have there with Mostert and the way they drafted Simeon, they just needed a quarterback. And if it's going to be Jimmy Garoppolo, or if it's going to be trey, Lance, I mean, you think about Lance and all the potential and everything he came in with, But when you look at the modern draft, they're up. I don't believe there was a quarterback drafted as high as he was with a few starts as he had, So is there going to be an adjustment period for him to take it to the next step, But they are a really good team in a really good division, and you look at those four quarterbacks right now in Matt Stafford and Murray. Russell Wilson and Trey Lance. It's going to be fun to watch that division for the next few years. I'm glad you brought up Trey Lance because I'm looking at the the props on the offensive Rookie of the year. And you look at the top of the board. And you know Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields. No surprise. Trey. Lance is third on that list. I mean, you've got Trey Lance right now. 5 to 1 to be the US offensive Rookie of the year. We don't know if he's going to play three games or 13 games. That to me is fascinating. That tells me that Vegas expects Trey Lance is going to play a lot of football in his work a year. I think he will. I think everything that we, you know, and we've seen money. Come in on Trey. Lance, we've seen money Come in on on Justin Fields. We've seen money come in on pets, So those three guys have seen money coming across the counter, and I think any time a quarterback is drafted high, you're just not going to see what happened with Aaron Rodgers. It's very rare that a guy is going to sit for a couple of years and have that growth. That he needs. I mean, you draft the kid, you know, 123, or you trade up to get a kid in the first round. The expectation now is when now, Um and that's why I think that and you look at San Francisco who has drawn a lot of future book action. You look at the season they had last year in the injuries. Yet they were still the sixth highest team on our future book are bored and playing in the same division as the Rams and Seahawks. So even though they had the injuries last year, the better is believed in them. They've already bet them to win the Super Bowl. And you add a piece like Trey Lance, if he has given the keys, um and I talked about it. I mean, you've got those young receivers and you know you can Samuel and Kittle. He's got some really talented, good skill position players. That can be game changers and you've got a mobile young quarterback with an arm like that. He he has all the tools to succeed, And I think with that defensive, they healthy that's why you're seeing some money coming on. Trey Lance, you're seeing a lot more in on Justin Fields as well. And we don't know if either land or field will start week one. By the way, I love the fact that you have a Tim Tebow touchdown prop on the board. 2.5 that to me. That was the best thing I read in this whole packet. You know, it's funny that you touch on that Scott because of you know, we always try to kind of target. What's going on in the world of sports? What's kind of the hot story? We have heard the rumblings about Tebow and when he when he got signed that morning, we decided, Let's put a prop up. Um you know, we looked at him in the 14 games that he started. He had 12 rushing touchdowns. What can we put up? Um, if you know he has to. He has to be on the on the Jags Opening day roster in play Week one, but it's not passing touchdowns. It is only receiving Or rushing touchdowns. We put that up. I mean, it was picked up by you know, ESPN dot com Pro football talk Everybody. Local media was all over the Tim Tebow story, but it created exactly what we wanted it to do. And that was water cooler chatter, media chatter and, you know, kind of get people to start betting it. The majority of the bets as far as money has been on the under, but I can tell you that the ticket counts are almost identical. And you've heard rumblings of he might be used just a little bit like a certain guy in New Orleans is used. I think people started to look at it and say, you know, if if he makes this team and they've got smallish backs right now in Robinson, and at the end that maybe he's a guy that could score some rushing touchdowns or be a tight end in the Red Zone. Um, last year, they only had two receiving tight ends both by Zach Eifert. He's not on the team anymore. So we'll see what happens after I predicted Tyler, right, Right, Right right now. It's interesting because the prop is touchdown. Total touchdowns, Not just receiving touchdowns. So, yeah. Receiving or Russian? Not not passing, though. The the Taysom Hill comparison is interesting. All right? I gotta duck in an NBA question here. I know you have not released your 2021 22 futures for the NBA, but I did see one of your competitors has already come out with numbers and they've got the Warriors. As the third biggest favorite to win the NBA title next year. They've got him at 8 to 1, and I just wonder, you know how much does that speak to the the faith? I don't know if it's blind faith, but the faith that Las Vegas has in the Warriors windows still being very much open despite what we saw this year, and admittedly they didn't have Clay Thompson, but it's not like they were knocking at the door without him. No, it's a difficult I think the whole NBA is a little bit difficult, Scott and that's why we've we've held off a little bit. There's so many question marks, and there's so much movement in that in that league and, you know, letter can opt out and become a free agent. Don't know what's going to happen in LA we know there's a lot of rumblings with Sixers. You've heard that the Warriors are going to be active, maybe with trade. Their window is definitely still open there a talented team and if they're healthy, you have to put them in that mix. I think right now there's just a lot of question marks in the NBA. I do think we'll put it up relatively soon, but even the NBA playoffs. I mean, you think about the net to everybody thought would be there and we know how good they were. With all three guys playing what their wins, you know how many games they won with only two and then how it went down with one injuries affected them. Leonard was out. It affected the Clippers. Davis affected the Lakers and now we're seeing hawks bucks with Janet and young with those injuries, So it has been not just the Stars of the teams. But you're talking about arguably some of the top 10 stars and all of basketball that really impacted the outcome of the NBA playoffs this year. Yeah, and this is the stuff that I'm sure keeps you up at night, right? You've got to keep checking with every injury, every team, every sport now and into the future, But that's what makes it fun, Chuck. Great talking to you, as always appreciate you taking some time out of your work schedule on this holiday Saturday and we will connect him. Alright. Sounds great, Scott. Thanks for having me on absolutely any time, my friend anytime. Yeah, This is just and look, you don't have to be a sports gambler, right? I'm not a sports gambler. But this is fascinating stuff. You know, it is fun to look at the lines. I think it's very telling. It gives you context. Right on on what's happening across the landscape of these various sports. NFC West is going to be a dogfight. By the way In case you're curious Raider fans a F C West they have..

"That's what never made sense to me now, and that's what didn't make sense to me is you're gonna trade basically the future. Of your franchise. Go get a guy. That is not, you know, it fits your scheme. But it's not. You know that that quarterback that true that that this team kind of needs that's what didn't make any sense to me. If you're gonna trade up, you know you're going to get something dynamic, and I think that's what you know that's what they were looking for. And let's face it. I mean, if you got number three, just if you got the number If you got the third pick overall NFL draft, you got some options. And the guy you gets probably gonna be pretty darn good. I think of Mack Jones came here. I mean, he would You know, he would have been a good player. But you You can't expand the playbook like you can with a trail or I mean, you just trade Lance, You just can't expand your play. But I think that's what I think That's what would cow Shanahan kind of fell in love with. Maybe he forgot about our G three. And all of a sudden it was like, Oh, yeah. I mean, that was a pretty powerful offense that he had, you know, with his father with the Redskins when when RG three was drafted, so I think he sees that, he says Now I can have a quarterback. That could make some things happen with his legs outside the pocket on the perimeter, maybe some off schedule stuff. Calor Murray, Russell Wilson. It'd be nice to have someone like that athletic quarterback and I think that's why You know you trade those pigs, and then you move up in the draft because you want that dynamic quarterback like that. I love the workouts. Also in it really illustrated the differences between these prospects. I talked to one scout was funny. The The There was a pass in the tray Lance first workout where he threw it. 30 like 35 to 38 yards, and the ball never went like six ft. Off the ground. I mean, it was just an absolute laser. It was a Josh Allen type throw. And I got a buddy who works in the NFC North as a scout, and I'm sending him attacks because he's like one of my good buddies and like and she told me I'm watching this workout of text back and forth, So I'm like, Did you see that throw? That's Josh. Alan. I hit I hit Send. It was one of those things where I put my phone down. It immediately rang immediately texted back and it's like he sent me the same text. That's so Josh Alan. So then we picked up the phone and actually talked about the workout. And, you know, I'll tell you the The difference between Max Workout and Lance's workout was night and day. Lance had an incredibly fast tempo work out and he was barely breathing. This kid is an incredible shape. Where Mack Jones had a very slow paced, work out and he was huffing and puffing and huffing and puffing to the point where a different buddy of mine sent me a text and this guy works in the NFL right down, he said. You know what? Matt Matt Jones, the hell of a quarterback, but he's not an NFL caliber athlete, and that's a problem and I agree, and and to me, the one What's Jimmy's problem is he's equations breaking down because he doesn't have. He doesn't sense the rush pre snap. Doesn't know what we always know where it's coming from, and then he's not reacting to it. Well, he's not escaping. Thus, he's occurring injuries. Thus, he's missing time. And now you got cow Shannon because he's he's led to Jimmy. With a sub 500 record. And yet he's one of the best coaches and football because the quarterback means that much so they got to get it. They gotta get a healthier quarterback. And I think I think Lance is gonna be that guy. It's gonna take some time. But that kid is To me. He's the perfect, You know, Clay, you know to mold And now if the proper perfect process, I think is the Mahomes process, which is let him sit for a year. Redshirt him essentially. And I think if you get the best clay in the best process with Kyle as your play caller and surrounding talent, I think you almost can't miss. And I think they see it the same way. The only thing that concerns me. We talked, I mean, Great kid. You know he studies and athlete. He's fast. He's in shape. Good looking, he strike No one's ever said he's accurate, though. No one said all this kid is crazy, accurate, and I think that's kind of important to play this position and quarterback. You got to be accurate, so we'll see how that works out. I think that's overblown. You know why? Because I could see was overblown. No, no, no, no. Don't misunderstand what I'm saying. Accuracy is everything his accuracy. Being subpar has been overblown Narrative here. He has a better completion percentage than the homes had a Texas Tech. Okay, He's got a significantly better. We're talking about mid sixties for Trey. Lance. We're talking about mid fifties for Josh Allen. So I agree with you. And I've always believed that you know, accuracy. Really? You either are or are not accurate, But I think Alan has proven that if you work on your mechanics On. You have traits that your accuracy can be greatly improved from, you know, the year 12, Year three. Now the question is, Do we have the patients? You know, do the owners of the patients of the fan base of the patients because let's be totally honest if he follows the truck, the Josh Allen trajectory That means he's probably not gonna emerge for three seasons and you know well, people already hail the pick of failure. If it takes three seasons. Let's clean up the board a little bit. Number of picks have come in. They come a lot quicker here once once we get to the fourth round James Hudson, offensive tackle from Cincinnati goes to the Browns. The Bangles grabbed to lane defensive end Cameron Sample. Here's a guy I'm actually pretty interested to see in. The NFL is an interesting receiver from USC went to the Lions. I'm on Ross ain't Brown. With the seventh pick in the fourth round. The Lions have the very next pick is well get linebacker Derek Barnes from Purdue, and then moments ago with the local ties. Stanford center Drew Dahlman. Goes to the Atlanta Falcons for stolen son. Yes. Yeah, very good player play with? Yeah, yeah, so exciting for him, and the Cowboys are about to send their pick in and we're already like a third of the way through the fourth round. And remember the 40 Niners have three slots in round five. And I'm a little disappointed that the 40 Niners have not drafted a defensive lineman. That is that It's so un 40 Niner. You're going first year ever for defensive tackle Well, and they did God They did so much on that, and I feel like in free agency combined with players coming back from injury. I don't know. I think they I think they feel pretty good about their pass rush right now. But the 40 Niners always draft off a defensive lineman. Always But you can never have enough pass rushers, and I think they will probably grab another pass rusher today, but, um, they're stacked. I thought the addition of Zach Kerr, and then they re signed all those guys. They re signed Ronald Blair and they, you know they re signed D. J. Jones and you know you still have. Ah, you know, street and all these other guys. I mean, it's a It's a It's an incredible group of talent. I mean, interested to find out what happens with the off field issue with Kevin Givens, because I think Givens is a young star defensive tackles really coming into his own. And he's got a knish you off the field that he's got to get cleared up, But that's us. That's a stack front as far as the picks today. I thought it was interesting. The Niners What would trace sermon guys over Michael Carter, the running back from Carolina, who the Jets went with toe leadoff today, just because Carter speedy and sermons more of Ah slash your big back, But that was a great pick about Tennessee..

"So likely. The jets are going after justin fields or trey lance state quarterback trae lance or ohio state quarterback justin fields. They're both very mobile. They're both very raw. Both quarterbacks could use some time sitting on the bench to learn and get the swing of the nfl before they become a starting quarterback. I would not want justin fields or trey lance starting day one in the nfl. The forty niners are keeping quarterback jimmy garoppolo. They're not going to trade him away. That's very helpful. Because it allows whatever rookie quarterback the forty niners. Do bring in to sit on the bench and learn and take time to prepare. There's really no hurry to get that quarterback they draft number three overall onto the field. That can take their time. That's amazing now. The debate has become mobile quarterback or not. And that's not what people are saying. That's what i'm hearing. It's either mack. Jones justin fields or trey lance. They have to meet with trae and justin feels make their own decision. They like better. Who think that's better potential who they want to work with all that kinda stuff. I can't know that i'm not the building. But i believe kyle. Shanahan has got to go after a mobile quarterback rather than mac jones the quarterback from alabama mack jones. It's possible to go from jones. Here's why mack. Jones is like a younger carbon copy of matt ryan. It's it's i. Compare mack. Jones matt ryan all the time. It's kind of disgusting. How similar they look and discussing the wrong word there. But like it's it's shocking. Wow footwork everything. And it's kind of weird. They both were coached by steve sarkissian as well Amac jones looks a lot like matt ryan. So because kyle shanahan. Coached matt ryan when matt ryan when an nfl mvp. Hey maybe they like that prototype. They go for that style. I understand that argument. But the league is trending towards having quarterbacks who are mobile. It started with really michael vick then. It became lamar jackson. Josh allen cuyler. Murray russell wilson. The league is now trending towards quarterbacks who can move doesn't hurts another example. You want guys who can move around in and outside of the pocket kyle. Shanahan knows that. In fact kyle shanahan at one point coached. Rg three when three won the rookie of the year. It looked like the future star of the nfl. So shannon has experienced. Both guys who look like matt ryan and coaching guys who are mobile the way. Rj three was for that brief stint with washington. So i believe that the for tornadoes are going to target a mobile quarterback..

"Actually goes into lambeau and does this All of those narratives are there and then it's in all honestly. I think the narrative and we we had it with drew brees You know i was going to list this morning of of the thirty. Two teams hal. Many with certainty like absolute certainty. Can you say you know who their quarterback is going to be next year josh allen. Patrick mahomes justin. Herbert rogers cuyler. Murray russell wilson. There might be tend. The twelve Right that's it and you thought. Last year's quarterback offseason was crazy. Last week's games in this week's games take us into another just like mind numbing. The possibilities quarterback off season. Matthew stafford jimmy garoppolo or matt ryan or those specimens at kent yemi. Who knows what's going to happen and the most fascinating story. The off season is going to be dish on watson. Sure exactly yeah. Exactly which three months ago. We never could have foreseen right by e. Go ahead try if everyone listening count. How many teams you can say with certainty. There is no chance they have a different quarterback. Next you know who. Who do you think's going to be in the super bowl I'm gonna go with green bay and I'm listen i if if it's mahomes. I'm not betting against the chiefs If it isn't that. I'm definitely taken the bills. I think buffalo mexico's regardless buffalo. Has this gleam about them. There's a gleam They're a team on a mission I i don't know if anyone can beat them right now. But i do think i'm just never going against homes at home at ano- everyone wants to well. They've been playing all these close games. So that's a sign that good that they keep winning all this close game. I'm with mahomes in the lineup. And i'm clowning. I'm counting last week. They won twenty four twenty five games. I don't know how you can reasonably say that a team that has won twenty four twenty. Five games of their quarterback is going to lose. The bills are the team to beat them. But if mahomes is there. I'm going to go with the mahomes magic and i'm gonna go rogers mahomes things before we We go did you happen i. It was tough because they put them on sunday night why. Hbo sunday nights during nfl. Playoffs catching the tiger documentary by any chance to partner on hbo. I haven't yet. I was gonna ask just i've been so So stuck with the news on the football. But i was gonna ask is. They did it and it was similar to the last dance. Which i'm sure you watch because everybody watched the last dance. And i was gonna ask you as an nfl expert. Who what nfl figure do you think would be good to get sort of that documentary. Deep deep deep inside treatment that jordan gafa the last dance and tiger got from. Hbo a few if you if you were picking you said this is who. I'd like an nfl documentary on. Like in that vein. Who would you pick. i mean. raise the obvious. The question is who who's got to produce Doing it then. Yeah abs- absolutely. I'm not suggesting that under the whitewash it but you in needs a serious treatment. I would go brady I think our earn. Rogers is a fascinating human being. I don't know that there. Is you know salacious stuff for. I don't know it has that that poll and mystery that tiger has certainly you know what i'm saying That's a rate great and would be interesting because the says that family drama that we don't know anything about. I don't know how many hadn't even thought of that. I don't know if anyone. Yeah it's a question of whether or not people care What else. I think the entire patriots last twenty years so it's not just brady but it's everything that has gone on for good for bad the truth everything in that building jesting that there are dead bodies buried in the backyard. But you think people would love to notice the actual story about twenty episodes for that last one. Do you still hate pro wrestling. Wow mega mega. Like the last dance. Making make it a point television. Yeah these still hate. Pro wrestling is my last question. I i mean hey no you don't watch it. Just don't care the idea that it's on sports channels is like maybe this last administration is a bad example but the news channels didn't cover the west wing as if it was nunes. The news channels didn't cover veep as if it was real right they listen. It's and that's what i don't. Everyone enjoy their wrestling shows. You if that is your nighttime drama. If you want to see people dress up and pretend like. They're wrestling gopher sports channels. Don't need to cover it i. I'm not sports. I bet. I bet i can find instances of wwe superstars somewhere on the nfl network being in the on like their fantasy. Show at fine there. He's an actor. We actors and all the time i love it. I'm being dead serious. They're not road difference. Fan like respect but like it's zero difference it is a it is a theatrical production. I always have to say. I always found it amusing when poor. Joe buck would have to read those smackdown promos during thursday night football. Same thing i same thing look and by the way jacob. Who who's you know. Executive known jake for twenty years loved the guy. Good friend yeah like. He's a huge wrestling fan. Obviously a huge reason that they have it there. I like i know it gets a rating good for them. They say. But it's not the only like that sportscenter used to covered. I mean could lord i only bring it up because i like that you stand by your taken. You don't back down. And that's why i bring it up. It's not hake. It's not a take theatrical production. No no sports no but to say that like sports center a sports illustrated etc shouldn't cover. Wrestling is definitely a take. No they shouldn't like take whatever. Your favorite news channel is what whatever but it. I just don't think it's a take semantics i realize. Cnn fox msnbc bloomberg in whatever whatever. Russia tv whatever news channel. You watch all right and sarcasm aside about the last administration here. You don't cover. What are obviously theatrical presentations as news. Why would sports channel cover a theatrical presentation as notes. I'm sure all of those stations. You just listed covered a guy who says pillows telling the president to inject martial law into society today so it's the same exact thing like no. It isn't that guy was actually in the as i said this. Is it a political conversation. The last administration was the last administration the current administration now as we speak now being sworn in like they're actually people in power. It's it's while you could argue. They treated the entire thing like theater. That's not the point right right. Wrestling is a theatrical presentation with a script now meant to be competition. So it's not. It's not in any way something that should be covered as such. I love that you backup that opinion. So strongly and that's all that matters and week was there is no grey.

"A little bit more a project him. I think he was sixteen and that projections We've seen him pass like the beginners tests for fantasy production. Now we're going to see him more of an intermediate test against the broncos. I don't think the broncos defense is good but they are much closer to average than the falcons are so he's gonna have to rush for fifty yards. But i think he probably will you. You're not gonna get two rushing touchdowns but you might get one and then it's kind of like the same thing with cam.

And if we weren't so take the time I tell you the story about where the name Appleton came from, All right, But I've got a question for you. I'm curious doing talk radio. If you think it will be better, more interesting, more fun to be doing Talk radio with a democratic president than having a Republican in the White House who has a good question. Thanks for that question, Josh, thanks for listening as well. It's an interesting question for a lot of different reasons. One. There is no doubt that having president down J. Trump in the White House as to the contents for radio talk show host That's That's not in dispute. If you ask me in a different way. Well, Joe Biden be as content driven for my and from my perspective as down J Trump, not in a Lifetime. Will he be that interesting in that controversial So that answer that question?

Thanks to Josh from Appleton. This applicant thing is interesting, You know? Yeah, I found it out. I don't know how true it is or not. Josh can correct me if he knows until 18 48 Appleton was known as Grand Shoot. It was changed because of a wealthy gentleman named Samuel Appleton. He made a bunch of donations to the town. I'm I'm reciting this. Reading it at age 60 Sam Appleton retired from his businesses to devote his life to philanthropic activities. He gave his time and money to hospitals, colleges, museums and historical societies. And because of that reason, Apparently, they found him to be a very influential and decided to name the town after him. From what I'm learning this all from the Appleton Library, By the way, Yeah, so the question and there's still a grand chute. Wisconsin, too. There is little annexation of Appleton, who Interesting. Anything else that's floating out there. We can answer. Otherwise, you can just ask me stuff. Great Show today, Steve. Thanks. I appreciate that somebody as about the game tonight.

Horrible defense, Did you? Here's Here's where I love my listeners and fans of the show. I'm tough on Mike Patton. So I get that I get the e mails. Did you know the Packers are the ninth rated defensive NFL now, But boy can numbers lie. It's different these days. It's different. You're top tens. Don't look like they did 15 20 years ago. And when you have guys by the way, like Tyler Murray And Russell Wilson playing sport that the position of quarterback your top 10 is gonna be a little bit different. Look at how you're not holding those guys. 2 to 6 points a game that doesn't happen anymore. Know the ending of that Buffalo Bills Cardinals game last week was absolute insane, actually.

This is from the 414. Do you remember what we were talking about last year at this time before Cove ID and the election results seems like a lifetime ago. I have no idea. What were we talking about?

"The broncos are throwing the football sixty point fifty four percent of the time the denver broncos that is welcome back to the whole show powered by energy. We're live from the articles in specialist studios. I was reading through this article this morning because we agree on how to get there. We agree on where we need to go. Mr kisla the denver post And i normally. I don't always agree with a little paths that to get there but he points this out. Now keep in mind. They're throwing sixty point five percent of the time but they're down all the time so you're gonna see sick in the second half if you're down twenty i mean you are increasing that you're throwing it non stop so that's a little misleading. But i think we all can look at it and say phillip lindsay. Who's averaging five point four yards per care. Five point eight yards per attempt. So it's round up six yards per carry that's forth in the nfl and yet head. What eight carries us we. I mean lindsay when you even when the line is struggling even when it's a defense. I still get this feeling. Lindsay is going to find a way to wiggle through and get yardage. melvin gordon. He is more of a. He's more of a dancer. I mean he's going to get the ball he's gonna look for a whole he's gonna bounce back and try to. He's not running that hard and in fact you know even his best when he was with the chargers he doesn't look like that guy anymore. I don't know what it is. I don't know if he's trying too hard to break off a twenty yard run. But i do feel i. Gordon doesn't see what's right in front of him often. I've noticed that this year lindsay is getting yardage. That's what he's focused on and if he can in the good thing is he's focused on two yards. He's he can break it in pop up another five six and get out on that edge. Gordon i mean sometimes it seems like he's tackled easily. He's he's not making the correct. Read back there and yeah. I haven't seen it overall but they're there. I mean. this team is pushing. They're trying to get gordon involved. I mean they're trying really hard to make sure that he is a he and lindsay both are focal points in this offense and i listen. I think i think they should be. I think both of them if we can get that one two combo that we saw for about five seconds against the titans then it could be really dangerous but we just haven't. We haven't got there yet. You know everybody knows you know. Lindsey only had six carries and the chargers game buddy busted one for fifty five yards. I mean again. You only ran the ball sixteen times against the chargers down by a lot early but that first half denver was still right there. The chargers get that crazy late games or late half score and they go up fourteen three and then we know the rest. The broncos five found a way away came back and win that game Not the case against the falcons. I mean it was almost exact same thing and yet again. You look at this team. And they didn't commit to the rushing attack now. I know it's hard to do that. When you're being shut down play after play after play. But i still put my money on the chance that phillip lindsay is gonna break something if you give him fifteen plus carries as opposed to drew. Lock trying to figure out this overcomplicated offense. You know lock Reporters asked pat shurmur about about locks tendency to roll right as soon as he snaps it to roll right shurmur kind of answered it but he he more or less said well no we we like that because we like when he throws when he's on the run i mean that's we like whether it's a buddha naked boot or we like that are there times when he tries to throw off the back of his foot when he gets into that yeah sure so he kind of admitted it overall. But that's what i'm noticing is. Drew is instantly looking to get outside. He's not he's not fast. Like lamar jackson tyler. Murray russell wilson even aaron rodgers. Heck he's about like that. I mean he can drew lock can do some things with his legs but not like that now when you roll out you now teams are knowing what they're gonna do defenses of studying up on him. They know he has a tendency. Just escape that pocket quickly. So they're going to try to make it appealing to him to continue to do that. They'll bait him now. The act like they're going to bring the end who's on drew. Lock right side. Probably have him tilting inward so it looks like ok that right side. It's going to be open for me. But you have a linebacker spy out there. So i mean defenses are going to get to the point now where. They're not necessarily trying to show that they're stopping it but that they're going to set up bait him into it that's again. You have a young quarterback. You have a lot of weapons. None of it makes sense. You gotta run. Lindsay at eight carries for twenty three yards. Gordon had six carries for eighteen yards last week. Not gonna do it. I mean why. Why spend the money. Why did you do this. Drew lock threw a forty eight times and again. He's throwing a chunk of that late. And the broncos were down early. Nothing early in the game. So i am standing by this. You gotta stay committed to this rushing attack. And i'm not quite sure what it's gonna take fangio saying the right things he said today. Hey i it's a mixture of both. We need to commit to the run game more Schematically we have to figure out how to open things up for these guys. Overall strength to this team unfortunately is a is an average defense right now with it with all these injuries. Strength team as an average defense when it should be your off. You're you're rushing attack. That's what this should be. You know you stocked up on tight ends now album out. I get that but you upgraded the oh lying graham glass. Cows been out for two weeks. I get that you're right. Tackle situation has been scary. And you have a rookie center. So i i get all of those things. But i still want to see that commitment overall again. Five point eight yards per rushing attempt. Lindsay is fourth in the nfl on yards per rush. Now how do you get him. How do you get him to carry the ball. Fifteen times you'll lindsey. I don't believe lindsay is going to be a derrick. Henry is not going to be a guy that can carry twenty plus times and almost get stronger with every carry. I think you're gonna have to even that out. But i think fifteen twenty touches you gotta get close to that and get close to it. Early established that rushing attack utilize gordon too. Because he's a little bit different he you know. He gordon's guy that it's going to dance around a little bit. And maybe make some crazy moose. Kill rights gordon brings attributes to the denver huddle that lindsay does not gordon runs bigger in short yardage blocks better in pass protection catches the ball more reliable. He is better blocking yes. He's better receiver. I'm not quite sure. I get the runs bigger in short yardage. I i kinda see gordon bounce. I see him bounce way too much but he blocks better in catch better. I'm not saying reduce gordon's carries. I extend are you give lindsay more and you give gordon moore. You gotta find a way. And i want to be the emphasis this week But again this all goes back to the original thought here at the starting of free agency into the draft elway is buying up all the shiny toys with no real rhyme or reason as to what pat shurmur is going to do with it.

"The home loan process rocket can coming up at the top of the hour, will be joined by former all pro linebacker Chad Brown. He played for the Steelers, the Seahawks and the Patriots. Ah lot to delve into and tackle with Chad Brown from everything that happened on a very busy Sunday in the National Football League and also at 8 P.m. Eastern five, Pacific, go around the NFL as well with a former legendary fullback Lorenzo Neal as he'll join us today on the sack. Gelb show It's a Monday we'll give you a news brief will play a little onside, offside and, of course, and the show out in style. With the closing bell, and you don't want to miss it coming up at 9 P.m. Eastern six, Pacific, My favorite segment each and every Monday and football season we take you around the league big plays controversial finishes. Unbelievable. Postgame audio. We touch on every game from Sunday in the NFL coming up at 9 P.m., Eastern six Pacific with segment that I like to call The no huddle offense Week seven does conclude tonight. I think you have an entertaining game with the Bears and the Rams, where we will find out about both teams as the Rams have been impressive, and then they had the stinker last week to allow the 40 Niners back in it as the 40 Niners were banged up, and they are still banged up, but they pulled out two victories. In a road taking down the Rams last week. And then yesterday, the 40 Niners just crushed and I mean, crushed the New England Patriots, which we'll get to in just a second. S so you have that matchup tonight with the Rams will see how they respond. Coming off the L And then on the other hand, you got this Chicago Bears team where Da bears may be the biggest surprise in the NFL this year. They are five in one. Both of these offenses. I still don't know what to make out of them. Yes, for the Rams. You like Supercup be like Robert Woods. You like what? Sean McVeigh, Khun dial up. Jared Goff, though, is a concern. He's inconsistent. One. We could look like he's completing 70% of his passes. And then the next week he will not be able to locate anyone. Like what did transpire Ah week ago on Sunday night Football. Going up against the San Francisco 40 Niners and for the Bears. You love their defense with Akeem Nicks. Polio, Mac? Yes, you have Khalil Mack going up against Aaron Donald tonight. While Nichols, who joined us is a very underrated player for the Bears to there's so many names toe like Ro Kwan Smith for this bears, defense and defensive, You know, they'll be set. Can they do enough, though on the offensive end and the Bears formula? I really for the entire season, It will be but more so the last two weeks have been offense, not play all that great do enough, though, to survive. You survive in advance and you play off the strength of your defense. And you just got to go get going out there and score like 17 20 points. As you have seen the Bears do the last Two weeks where they got 20 against the bucks where they just survived 20 to 19 and then up against the Panthers. They got 23 points and held the Panthers to 16. So that's the way that the Bears are gonna win this year. 24 2023 17 23 16 those types of games and if the Bears To get into that 24 25 point range with the defense that you have. You got to feel good about Chicago, even though there is some skepticism with them with what we perceive the bears to bay before the season did commence yesterday was crazy. We'll get to the Falcons with another choke. You had those two while back to back finishes in the 1 P.m. hour, Haakenson caught the game winning touchdown for Matthew Stafford is the lines that take down the Falcons. You saw a Cleveland Browns team where it looked like they were goingto lose them. Baker Mayfield capped off a crazy day with this fifth touchdown. Pass The Donovan people Jones, so those two games are awesome. In the one o'clock hour. Also, in the one o'clock hour, we will touch on the Steelers and the Titans going into the game Steelers were five. You know, Tennessee was five nose stealers down six to know Tennessee. Five and one and it looked like that game is going to be a blowout with the way that the Steelers opened up that ball game in the second half, though, Steelers got cold Tennessee got hot. And if Gostkowski makes that kick That game goes to overtime is he missed the 40 something yard field goal. If it does get Tau overtime, and anything could happen with the way Momenta MME was shifting in that game, You probably would have thought Tennessee would have won the game. But it's been the same story for Tennessee. And I know it's a little different wrinkle. Let's not kill him after one loss. That third down. Defense has been abysmal this year, and that was a big problem yesterday. Going up against the Pittsburgh Steelers will get to Saints and Panthers is well. Matt Rhule attempted a 65 yard field goal that was just short, it would have tied up the game a 27 apiece. Saints do survive, though 27 24 over the Panthers states Now for into Panthers go 23 and four We will obviously touch on which may have been the craziest game from yesterday and there was some crazy games. What a finish those Sunday night football last night. Cuyler Murray, Russell Wilson Down late the Cardinals. They get it to overtime back and forth craziness and over time Russell Wilson even though he was remarkable with some of the deep balls that he was thrown in the game..
"murray russell" Discussed on Fantasy Feast: 'Eatin
"In in quote Unquote Expert Leagues. You're just not going to get those guys eat nap. There are ways to win in fantasy football draft quarterback. Early, you'll see a big one of the things going around in best ball from from fantasy twitter and fan the fantasy community is achieved stack almost drafting two or even three chiefs in the first three rounds by going with tyreek, Hill Travis Kelsey and Patrick Mahomes. Maybe you do collide Edwards. Larry tyreek Hill Patrick Mahomes. There are ways to to kind of do a super high up stack like that. It's particularly risky in the time of Kobe to do something like that put all your eggs in one basket but frankly the opportunity cost of drafting a quarterback that early, it really hurts you at the other positions especially running back and wide receiver. That's why I don't like doing it in Rossi had. The the the thing people always going to say to you. Well, you know I had more last year and I had Patrick Mahomes the year before and those guys were the reason I want my fantasy championship. True One, hundred percent true. That's why I have them ranked number one and number two mahomes actually number one but I mean against leading hairs like I talked about a little bit earlier. But when you drafted Patrick Mahomes two years ago where together. Tenth Round Eleventh. Round when you drafted Lamar Jackson last year where'd you get them? Ninth? Round. Ten. Round that that's part of the reason if not, the reason you want your fantasy championship at these guys. Yes they scored a ton of points but you weren't hurting running back and you weren't hurting at wide receiver. They just help put your team over the top into that near unbeatable zone. That's what happened with those guys. So this year they're super expensive I am going to pass. I'm not naive enough to think there's another Lamar or another mahomes on the. Board somewhere. However, I going to take the opportunity to try to find somebody who seventy percent of Lamar or seventy percent of Patrick Mahomes, and I am going to build my roster much stronger running backs and wide receivers. So in most leaks, I am not going to be drafting quarterbacks from Yes. You can win by doing it. Yes. If you have a keep relief for sure but that is not how I would recommend. You do a fantasy football team this year. Tiered you've got four guys, Dak Prescott, Tyler, Murray Russell, Wilson, the Shawn Watson. All those guys give you some kind of a running element. Yes, and I think if people were to say, well, here's the next Lamar Jackson people are going to say it's Kyla Murray. The problem is everybody is looking for that next Lamar Jackson Kyle Murray's ADP qb three q before. So he is very expensive this year and I know you've had Greg Cosell on the podcast and He wrote a piece for US fantasy points dot com where he said do this guy's got a lot of out but he's got a lot to work on and with the off season you wonder. Could he get off to a little bit of a slow start? So you're not getting of Murray at a discount with this tear Ross..

"Soon as Trevor Simeon came in, They basically doubled their sack numbers. Uh, And it kept going up from there. They had 50. They give up 52 sacks. Few years ago. 52 sacks, Lead lead. No question. I mean that. I think that was in 2017 sacks are not necessarily I know everybody wants to attribute that to bad offensive line, play sax or what? I don't okay. His sacks are usually not. The function of battle offensive life. You hear the way I started that? I said the quarterback, I know, but I'm trying to clear I'm being specific for the lady and I I get what I'm picking up what you're putting down, but I would be very clear to the listeners how we view Sacs on this show and who have you know guys talk to coaches everything around the league. As far as this kind of stuff goes, sacks are usually a function. The quarterback hanging on the ball to all that talk about Josh Allen is way high up on their because he's a guy that hang runs around, hangs on the ball to Shaan watching the same thing. Wilson, you have Cuyler Murray, Russell Wilson. Jay Leno does have has had a bad line he has and you know, he had four light tackle position is hilariously bad, but he does tend to try to improvise Does and improvise is going to take more sacks. Calamari gets same thing. Cuyler Murray's in there, Kyle Allen, but that's more of a function of holding onto the ball to Shaan Watson. Carolina had a bad line two on top of that, But yes, but I mean, these guys are all examples. Mistress Keys in there. Josh Alan Daniel Jones. Some of these are young quarterbacks, and then some of them were quarterbacks that hold onto the ball. What is drew lots going to be Well, he gets rid of it quick, And I don't know if that was solely a function of the offense last year because Rich was scan gorilla was hyper conservative and one of the ball out quick. And that was part of his thing. No, no, not put them in negative place. I don't know if that was a function of that. I tend to think not. I tend to think that it was the internal clock on lock. Simply because Joe Flacco took so dang mania. In 26 sacks Now was that direct rich scale the offense back for Drew. So there's there's Ah, there's a chicken egg argument here to be had On whether or not that is, but we'll find out that the good news is we're going to find out now hold on. Pat Shurmur offense does have a lot of that. Get the ball out quick, so that's going to help. But You know, In the end, we'll see. We'll see if it's the internal clock of Drew locks. And, hey, I got to get out of this football. Good. Get it out. Let me find the check. Or is it just a function of the offense Because Daniel Jones by himself took 38 sacks. The Broncos is a team last year took 41 Danny Jones, of course, did not play the full season. So is Daniel Jones sack number or the offense with Daniel Jones at quarterback. Is that sack number indicative of patrons offense are indicative of a young quarterback that's holding the ball too long. Several things. First of all it was they had a bad line. They did. Second of all, he did hang onto the ball too long. Third of all, they were, without sake, Juan Barclay for a large portion of it, so people just teed off on Jones. Pleasure missing several receivers throughout the year, right? And there's there's those aspects of it, too. But if you don't have a running back that has the threat of holding some of that that get makes you check that, and that gives you that split second extra advantage. Castle. Just t other wide nine and tee off on you. I was asking Steve about sub 20 sack numbers. In part, that is because the offense withdrew. Lock only gave up five sacks, so extrapolate that over five game five games there go 15. That's Obviously, maybe add a couple more 17 which is exactly the number that Patrick Mahomes had. Last year. I went back over to take a look just to see what Peyton Manning stack numbers. 11 sacks. I'm sorry. 21 sacks 21. Sex 11 interceptions 21 sacks in 2012 in 2013. Peyton Manning and the Broncos office gave 18 sacks Sub 20 2013. That's a record setting year a little bit different, but example you can see the example of not giving a plot of sacks. Don't put yourself in bad situations. I'm down in distance 2014 17 sacks even improved on that, Considering the fact that 2014 especially the back half of the year, when the wheels really came off, and then 2015 the year they won the championship Now, Peyton Manning only play 10 games. He gave up. They had 16 sacks will use in there. It wasn't great. Again as a team. They ended up with 39 which is where you started to see the numbers trend up because from there when the Trevor Simeon then yet another Trevor Siemian, and you have packed Lynch mixed in there, and then the numbers just skyrocketed for the broncosoffense, but it's an example. For me of the difference between having a competent quarterback back there, one that gets rid of the ball efficiently versus quarterbacks that hold onto the ball drift in the pocket too much, and that's why one concern about drew lot coming into this year. Well, I'm sorry one of several concerns, but one of the concerns is the drifting. He does do that from time to time..

"murray russell" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Whenever you like all right Colin Right Colin wrong. I make him a lot of mistakes. Out The course of a week and let me Call myself out a few times here. We go where Colin was right then. People love super teams. This has been my mantra for twenty years. When I first got my job at the other place I remember one of my first days. I said in all these guys. Sad love underdogs one and she'll watch him. The even snarky twitter last night fell in love with Michael Jordan. There's a reason we like the avengers. There's a reason people go to Coachella. We like when you get stars all together and they're fascinating and you get the glamour and the Great and the egos. It's fun now. Hard work is great. I don't WanNa Watch it. I WanNa Watch stardom and Glamour in thirty for thirty hat. All that where Colin was raw. I Love Him. I think he's great. But now Peter King Albert Beer and Peter Schrager all saying he could fall in the draft. Listen We know the injury thing? I still contend. He's a rare talent and I would roll the dice on the injury. If I'm like a Miami and I've got thirteen bags I draft quarterbacks or I'm a chargers where I've got a roster that could withstand a pick that doesn't pan out But you know listen. The Wunderlich score was lower than you love. It's not I mean you know Phil Simms had a bad one. It's not the end of the world. Everything is something but the stories this morning. He's dropping a little where Colin was right. Carolina Sign Christian. Mccaffrey do a monster deal last week. And did you hear what Matt Rule said his quotes? Were very telling we want football guy. I focused guy true leader guy. It didn't have to say when Tom Brady left. New England he said Tampa showed him warmth Who is he taking a shot at Bella? Check the reality is Cam is what I thought was talented. But a lot of drama and distracted and Matt Rule made a point of saying it last week in his way where Colin was raw. Ob Days not going to Minnesota now. My sources told me the same thing but I did get very excited for about two hours because I've been told Oh. Bj is putting on a good face but Cleveland's not worry wants to be. Ideally but I gotta take a wrong here because I went crazy for about fifteen minutes to start my show and I do think Minnesota's good fit for OB J. Four the Vikings in actually benefits Baker in the browns they can get more focused on all the elements. They already have. How many mouths do you want Baker Mayfield to have to feed? But I'll take a wrong on that where Colin was right in. Kelly Hall of fame quarterback said last week in a quote he said. I watch all these young quarterbacks the AFC and it reminds me of the days when it was me and all the legends like Marino and me and all going up against elway and thank you. Jim Kelly again. We romanticize the past there has never been a time in my life. Were fewer teams had bad quarterbacks. And more team had franchise quarterbacks and different Lamarque and run and throw Patrick's got a great arm. Sodas Aaron cuyler Murray Russell. Wilson's a little smaller than you'd like the all shapes and sizes big Ben's old big gets hurt but he's he's great and Brady's old and not mobile but he's accurate. We're getting so many different variations. This is the gold made quarterbacks this now I've been watching it since nineteen seventy two. This is the best quarterback position has ever been in my life right now in Jim. Kelly acknowledged it where Colin was raw. We're all GONNA take a collective wrong on this that we always think that Lebron James is looking at Michael and got Michael and his head. But that's funny the producers of this now acknowledging that Michael Jordan was willing to do this documentary after Lebron James came back to beat the warriors and was holding a trophy in Cleveland. And people started talking about you know. Lebron may be better than Michael Jordan and suddenly. What do you know Mike was like you know those old tapes? I said you could never run. You can run him now. Don't get yourself Michael's like the rest of us. He's human he doesn't want his legacy dip and it's not good for issue. Brand is not good.

R. live dot com you can stream all three hours of the show if you don't have the audience that work on direct TV that's channel two thirty nine earlier in the season it seems like a pretty good bet Patrick my homes was headed for a second straight NFL MVP picks up right where he left off last season and then something happened the last couple of weeks Kansas city had issues on the offense of line the homes tweaked his ankle in that defense is one of the worst in the NFL chiefs lost two in a row all of a sudden my homes came back to earth statistically and now the NFL writers who place Russell Wilson at the top of the MVP lest you Sean Watson is second and then Christian McCaffrey not far behind I'm sure my homes is more concerned with winning games than awards right now but he gets the national spotlight tonight against a new and improved Broncos team and certainly a pretty good defense you remember I think last year when he threw that left handed passed to lead a comeback victory in prime time in Denver and the the chiefs opal homes will get healthier the team plays a little better on both sides of the ball if not then we'll probably move full steam ahead with Russell Wilson as you're in the peer to Sean Watson but I'm looking at this chiefs defense ranked twenty seventh in the NFL that's a cause for concern it was a cause for concern last year when they had the Ford and Justin Houston now you got Frank Clark and Alex OQO for they have combined for two sacks they have eleven sacks that's tied for twenty fifth and the pass rush is been pedestrian at best so I don't know if if Patrick my homes is gonna earn the M. B. pay he's gonna have to put up numbers that are very similar to what he did last year just to keep them in the mix because that defense I don't think it's getting better anytime soon yeah I was I think say how many purely offense of teams have won a Superbowl I I'm thinking the rams of Kurt Warner they didn't have much of a defense at all they just out score people and I can't think another purely office of team that won the title it's rare when you can own score people in win a championship although if you look at you know the patriots when they get to the Superbowl you know Brady put up five hundred yards of total offense but they lost of bill they had Randy moss and a loss to the giants they were an off into my do team of the greatest show on turf does stand out I don't know how many other top ten top thought about top five offenses to win a Superbowl yeah I'm a club the patriots from two thousand seven the like two thousand twelve had an amazing offense but they really win a Superbowl okay so that's fits your theory maybe run down the list there well it still comes down to you got to play some defense your at some point somebody's going to have to make a stop in a big game big moment and there's only offenses if it feels like it's the same thing with baseball offenses regular season and then it's pitching and defense in the postseason offense all season long in the NFL and then what happened in the Superbowl yet a defensive struggle in the Superbowl two really good offense of team certainly the rams a really good offense the team last year and they were completely shut down yeah I'm a club I think if it drew Brees a Superbowl say by defensive play and Peyton manning Super Bowl against the bears I don't really remember what happened was that was paid in great in that game that was a great office of team but they Bob Sanders I don't think they had I don't think they were great offense win a Superbowl with the bears I don't think I swear I kind of robin the Polly to help rex Grossman was our quarterback all I'm still dining out a rex Grossman getting us is simple yeah the fact that he got you there that's the mere opinions shocker in about history I saw USA today was looking at old quarterback's new quarterbacks looking at comparisons Patrick my homes he's compared to Aaron Rodgers that's fair comparison Lamar Jackson Michael Vick fair comparison Baker Mayfield Brett Farr if you're a Browns fan and I said you you got it Baker Mayfield is gonna be the next Brett Farr you sign up for that right the great quarterbacks of all time although what I think it's lost sometimes with pharmacy played twenty years he threw over three hundred interceptions thanks that that's to me mind boggling that far would throw three hundred I think it's three thirty six or something like that and many of Aaron Rodgers Rodgers doesn't throw interceptions it all but far far has three hundred interceptions you Sean Watson Andrew luck was a comparison Josh Rosen Eli manning where does not now not yet if if you're the dolphins you would sign up for Josh rose in being the linemen right you take Cooper manning yeah you can't do that that's mean spirited he lied to say Josh Rosen is like the last man again unless you think you I many might be under rated when well what if no we're putting him in the hall of fame how's he under rated I don't know but I feel I feel like he's over rated that we're putting him in the hall of fame can you be both he's going in for two games in his see you can hurt you a certain times it is Chris is wildly yeah it gets as Kyler Murray Russell will soon real stretch there okay Sam Donald Tony Romo okay I mean you know Tony had a wonderful career but he came out of no where to do what he did I think you're expecting more out of Sam Donald then you've got out of Tony Romo with the cowboys right it is high is he was drafted well robo statistically at an unbelievable career just couldn't win I know what you're expecting Sam Donald to be a whole fame if you drive to Matt hi I'm assuming that you have great you know high expectations than just hates gonna put up similar numbers numbers to Tony Romo yes he is this about style of play or about coincidences in life yeah physicality I hope it stays that way yeah with Sam already on his way with the mono in his spleen L.

P. starts out that way we're going to run the football home plate the fence and then he's going to get to the fourth quarter and they're gonna be trailing you know nineteen to twelve and he's gonna say Hey Russell can you help me out here and then Russell Wilson you know they'll end up winning like you know twenty four to twenty three every time yes then I feel like them yeah we love to see a coaching this Tuesday press conference like be honest about a quarterback like Pete Carroll's going at the best I sure hope service he's got his he'll give it up no run too much I'll throw to our defensive backs this is gonna be awesome well member that knuckle head with the eagles the eagles who was sacked brown band where he he said a you know the the weak link on the Vikings is Kirk cousins and then Kirk light some up and then this guy don't even get in front of a camera he's not gonna talk about Kirk cousins I only want to talk about the game and then the eagles cut him yeah remember years ago we have right here sign he said when he was a patriot he loved to play Jay Cutler because he knew Jay Cutler was and give up a bad ball over the middle and runs like I'm get to pick against Jay Cutler be said you know you can't say that the week before but they also said that about Peyton manning Rodney would say we knew it was going to give it up we didn't know when but we knew that he was going to give it up all right of this program.

"On Twitter page at Detroit to enter to vote. So you don't have to hear this music. All the time. Please vote somebody out. I'm not hating on country music is just like it's a girl off with that. We grew up with DJ cash that was a horrible impersonation. But you get the point. NFL draft combine over the course of this weekend. Kinda Murray the big time Kayla. Marie. He might have saved. He might he's locked himself into the number one pick and how nuts is that that he's measured at five. Ten. Russell Wilson was what five nine at the NFL draft combine color Murray's hands for about a Lynch bigger than Russell Wilson. He's locked himself as number one pick. We talked about a couple of weeks ago. How crazy is that the number one pick? Yeah. I mean, we didn't even know if he's gonna be playing football just a couple of months ago, just recently. And all of a sudden, you see is the favourite to go number one. I mean that's terrible for you know, Josh Rosen out there in are Zona. But I think that could be a great pick for the cardinals. I just want to see if he's able to adapt to the NFL because you know, he's a little bit under size, and he's not you know, that pro style quarterback that everybody thinks about he likes to get out of the pocket and run. So I'm really excited to see how how this next his rookie year pans out. Yeah. Interesting. I mean people have been saying, he's not ready. I was one of them. He's not ready to an NFL starter. And yeah, it's nuts. How the cardinals are going to go from Josh Rosen. Who was highly rated more highly greater than drew Brees more highly graded than Cuyler Murray. Russell Wilson all these guys coming into the draft. He he doesn't have value. I mean, he sucked his rookie year. But look at it seems like Washington look at Miami. These teams are gonna they're gonna come up, and they're going to say, I don't want to give up. My you know that I pick that first round pick. If a second round pick for Josh Rosen, your Washington who still owes Alex Wilson a Brinks truck, why not pull the trigger on that. Alex wilson. Alex smith. Gotcha. Very very Sanders. What you need to do. Yeah. I mean to me, I mean, listen, we're talking about it's tough. I can't practice not talking. So I mean names are tough enough fair enough. I also do you think that if he if he goes to Arizona? Do you think that there's going to be a little QB competition with Cuyler and Josh Rosen or do you won't be there if they draft however Murray he's going to trade traded? Okay. That's fair enough. Okay. But yeah, I mean, it's just going to be it's going to be a really interesting. I want to see what happens to Josh Rosen after this. Whether he gets a starting job somewhere else where there's a quarterback really need or if you just washes out, and he becomes as big bust. It's gonna be really interesting to see that. I don't think he's I don't think he's going to be a bus. I think that this kid has a tremendous amount of talent. Sure, you didn't show is rookie year. I mean, the cardinals are absolutely hogwash the worst of the NFL. But if Josh Rosen can get it to Washington via trade have all these dairies guys is coming back from the ACL tear the big time running back. I think that Washington gives Josh Rosen some time to develop he could he could be special. He's got the arm. He's got the wheels. And he's got the IQ. He's got the football IQ, which is the biggest thing. Yeah. And also you go back to he had a bad rookie year. We'll soda Jared Goff where they what one in fifteen or two and fourteen his rookie year. And then he plays in the Super Bowl. I mean. Yeah, it's really hard to tell is not really a good measuring measuring stick just one rookie year. So it's going to be interesting to see if if this turns out to be a boss Terry turns out to be like a Jared Goff type guy. I think he has. You know, the potential to do it because he's got the arm like I'd mentioned. But here's what I you know, it's making me mad. Steve. The GM of the Arizona Cardinals mentioned at the NFL draft. Combine Josh Rosen is our quarterback for now. The keyword for. Now, I feel like this movie school of rock when Jack black held up the index finger the finger in between the ring finger so he had three fingers. He said rebates. That's exactly what Steve Josh Rosen. I feel you. Oh, this kid Cuyler Murray's not changing your franchise. He's not changing your franchise. He's five ten. He's gonna get out of the pocket. He's smoked. Bye. Bye. So you think he's is not going to pan out in the NFL. You think no he's not? I if you if you disagree, Colin I wanna hear I want people to disagree with me because I feel like that's an unpopular opinion. I don't think calamari will pan out in the NFL, obviously, he's not gonna be a star rookie year. He's going to have to take some time to is football IQ is not all the way there. So it's going to have a couple of years for NBA get things together. Josh Rosen is ahead of him in that category. The football IQ is Josh Rosen separate himself from Cairo. Mary categories of a tremendous athlete. Don't get me wrong. He's not gonna pay out in the NFL. I seek Heather Marie. And I think he has the potential I don't know. If he has, you know, the game controlling ability, but he's very similar to Russell Wilson. What he was in college. I think that. Colin Murray got a lot more. Attention college news, probably a better player in college. Which is another thing that interests me quite a bit. But they're really they're very similar play styles. They can make something out of nothing. Looks like there's a broken play. You just take the sack or throw it away. They can turn that into positive yardage. And we've seen Murray he's a winner. He. I mean, he took Oklahoma to the college football playoff. So it's gonna be really interesting. I just don't I'm not sure whether he's going to pan out or not. But I think ruling them out right now. Lucas not not the best decision. I think it is. I mean, he's obviously he's a great player. Obviously don't get me wrong. Is he number one pick were the guy that you can rely on running your franchise for the next ten years Sam and another thing about Calamar if he doesn't pan out as a quarterback they can play another position. And you want to get him hit even more that he would be at quarterback. He gets smoked at a slot receiver or running back. He absolutely smoked. Maybe he's like a wildcat guy. He's got he's got a good arm. It's like Denard Robinson Marie. Don't ever question. Denard robinson. You don't propel themselves in college football hall of fame. I'm kidding shoelaces in the af by the way, Robertson, Atlanta legends. You think he's going to make a comeback to the NFL? Now. Comebacks Jason Witten housing. And is a difference maker. He's a hall of Famer and he's playing how old is look up his age. How old is Jason Whitney's three. Yeah. I think he's thirty four. I'm not for sure on that. Let me see. He is big body. Deck prosecutes thirty six thirty six. Wow. Hang them up. Hanging up, buddy. Yeah. I mean when when he call it quits was really sad and. You know, you wanted to have him back, but he was definitely ready to go at that point. I mean, thirty six years old and to play tight end in the NFL too. I mean. That's got to be one of the toughest things to do in professional sports play, you know, into your late thirties at a position where you're getting hit every single player either blocking or you know, you're going off for a pasture. There's so much work you had to put in. I mean, he's shop locked. Yeah. I think he's going to be a first ballot hall of Famer. I think you just I could turn out to be a mistake coming back. I don't think it's going to hurt his legacy or anything. But maybe like a bad injury or something like that could make him regret his decision. Yeah. He needs to hang them up thirty six years old playing with a young Cowboys team. I mean, I guess Jerry Jones. My brought him back to you know, what contain deck Prescott contains Zeke off-the-field antics. We've seen Zeke how many times has been suspended two or three two or three times. But elite for two years. So I mean that might be the sole reason why he's back to you know, bring a locker room presence. We don't even know what he's gonna play. But hang Jason. It's time and time also we started this conversation off talking. About the NFL combine how about DJ cat or decay Metcalf? He's. Yeah. Have you seen that picture of him in the Jeb? Yeah. That's it's ridiculous. Any runs a four three three? I mean, it's just ridiculous athlete. You would know if you even saw the picture, but I mean watching him in the combine was unbelievable. I I honestly I didn't even know who that guy wasn't until they. You don't know who he was because he was the third receiver on ole miss. Yeah. It's it's ridiculous. And and he was injured most of last season wasn't he? Yeah. I mean, he's not like a big time spectacular wide receiver here. Like what twelve twelve hundred receiving yards over the course of his career at old miss? He's not a guy. That's good shape organization, folks. I know he's gonna be a first on-track pick. He ran a four three three thousand forty point six percent body fat. Yes. Yeah. He is just a specimen. But I mean, maybe he's a guy that will just fly, and he flies under the radar all through college. He's not really. A highly touted guy coming into the NFL shows up at the combine puts on a show. And maybe that could get some teams intrigued maybe given good opportunity. I think he has a potential to be a great NFL player. I mean with that athleticism and his size to what's the six three to forty or something like that. Receiver you have to have hands. It doesn't mean. It doesn't matter that you have a one point five percent body fat. You gotta make the place, and he didn't make the place at the White House. He's supposed to make the plays in the NFL. That's a great question. I guess to see. But I mean, this guy is he has all the physical tools to be be a great NFL player in my opinion. You tell me. How's he supposed to do it?.
"murray russell" Discussed on First Take
"In Oakland A's. First round pick Cuyler Murray has made his toys at it is the NFL the sooner star quarterback going on social media yesterday to announce that he is fully committed to football for more on Kyla Murli. Let's welcome in our friend NFL draft expert Mel kiper junior. Now what's going on? Well, always something right? Always there's a lot today. I will tell you that. I'm so glad we have you because we started off the show with a nice little debate between these two fine, gentlemen. And what I just wanted to. I'm so glad we have you any day. Not. I don't need a special reason is. Thank you max. One knows. I'm. Okay. Well, his going Cuyler Murray in terms of who should go number one overall and max had Dwayne Haskins. Where are you on this subject? I'm kind of reading I haven't figured it out yet a lot of happening as we speak with all these news and teams are catching up on Kyle merge is the Dame expected him to be an NFL prospect when the season began or an NFL potential player, which he is now. So I think there's a lot to be said we're going to beat the combine and hands size. You think about his height? The interview process the football IQ, which she should be phenomenal Bunder Lincoln Riley for two years. I think everything's going to fall into place for collar Murdy, go top. And is he ahead of Haskins? That right now is the beta why can't answer that definitively right now, just lying and guessing I can't give you an answer. I can't get any consensus right now. Because teams aren't even sure they don't want to go on record as the Haskins Murray debate. So right now, it's too close to call. Both those kids will be projected in the top ten of my mock draft comes out on Monday and let me. Be clear max actually said Nick both should go. First overall. These were first quarterback taken off the board. That's where he was going to join Haskins. But we'll get an here mill if you know cops are always sloppy. They're always inexact. But if you look at collar, and you say who does he remind you of people wanna mention Russell Wilson, right? They wanna go short. They wanna talk about drew Brees. They wanna talk about Russell Wilson. They want to focus solely and exclusively on his height. I gotta be honest mill and there's nothing on the surface that makes these two guys similar, but he kinda reminds me of well, at least in effect, Vince young. I remember rooting four Vince young and against Collor Murray. And I was just like it doesn't matter if it comes with his legs or arms, he's going to get that first down somehow it was just so defeating now understand heightened differences accuracy, differences personality differences who does collar Murray remind you of them. He's Cuyler Murray will I I don't know who you can pick and choose and pull a little bit. But the body type Russell Wilson isn't Kyle Murray. Russell Wilson was thicker to ten to fifteen at five ten and a half and. And three quarters. You know, he runs he I mean, he is a Kirk streets it yesterday. He's Reggie Bush running and he's a big time passer. And he's a pocket die goes through its progressions. These patient in the pocket. Yeah. He'll run when you could screw say nitpick say way left a little early the pocket because he's such a phenomenal runner. If he sees a lot of daylight. He knows Ingo fifty yards in a blink. So I think when you look at Kyle or unique talent once every X amount of years, you're not.

"Maggie teased it go ahead. Boy, this is this is interesting. They have both. Whoa, jr. And shops have this. So MBA insiders all over it. Looks like there are fourteen count them up four teams that Anthony Davis would be willing to sign a long term contract extension with. Those teams the following the Lakers, the clippers the Milwaukee Bucks and your New York Knicks. Ooh. Lakers, clippers bucks. Knicks feel like the probably the biggest. Competition you're going to have to LA teams. I mean, I I know Janas big side to a long extension. So, you know, he's not going anywhere. But the idea of him going walkie just doesn't sound right. And also the fact that you know, they they operate some same real estate, right? It's not like the guy that can shoot. Now. No Davis has opened up his shooter. He starting to shoot more threes. But they're both kind of fifteen eighteen foot type of players that get the ball their hair with with the back to the wall. I don't see how they complimented each other. Now. The clippers is interesting because they have a lot of pieces. You'll you think about all the pieces they got from the peasants with the Blake Blake Griffin. Trade Tobias hairs is coming up. But they have a lot of like little good pieces. And maybe they can attract somebody else won these big stars like in the off season Durant. I mean, that's the other thing Durant. We all think it's a it's a done deal. He's coming to New York. And I hope he does all stuff aside with the Knicks. I do hope that Kevin Durant comes here. But I think the clippers are going to make an attractive offer, and, you know, the clippers with their owner now, I mean, you can't have more polar opposite guys in terms of the Nixon and the clippers you bomber who's this. Tech mogul energy. And I just think that that might be I know he's a little wacky. But I think that might be attractive place. So if you're the Knicks, and we're talking about trading for a day. Yeah. So you need those two goes another year you'd have to wait them out. If you're if you're not gonna trade for him. Now, you got to give up next year in essence to if that's who you get your heart. What if what if what if the pelicans we want your this year's twenty nineteen we your this this twenty nineteen draft pick the one that's going to be the? Sign a deal. He's the Nixon. Signed an extension with. But I'm not doing that. If I'm the Knicks because is that what they said, or as you just said that those are the fun of fourteen consider. No se he's willing to sign a long term deal. Okay. I think it's willing to. I mean if Davis wants to come to the Knicks. I think you put that twenty nineteen first round draft picking it. No, no questions asked. I don't be. What have what have the pelicans one? With a lot better talented what the Knicks surround around him. But you're going to get to superstars and he's still going to be short with the rest of your roster. He remembers, but why are you freeing up all this cap space? If not to get superstars you need to write so Davis, and Kevin Durant, and you need to cheap draft pick to make you complete by Dennis Smith junior counts. Because this is only a second year in the league. And so yes, you'd give up you guys love Dennis Smith junior you'd give up the love them, you give up the question, Mark even assured you're gonna get the sure thing of Anthony Davis. But I'm okay with it. But it's so that means so that means no kyri in his equation because if you keep and Dennis Smith junior, he's your point exactly. Oh, yes. I don't like that. I I still like Kevin Durant Zaire Williams, and maybe kyri Korean Davis are very close. I Kyrie would like to play with Davis. I'm sorry. The tennis Smith is not keeping me from bringing Korea. It's between Durant and Kyrie two parallel Durant. So you so you gotta say Dennis Smith junior down to the pelicans as well. That's what you're saying. Since Dennis move. I gotta keep him. Don't I knew point guard. Well, if you're trying to go still get kyri, nobody you're just telling me, I'm not going to be able to get them. If I have Anthony Davis and Kevin Durant. Those are my have. They don't have room for give up the pick. So I would I can't I wouldn't think twice to superstars and enough to get it done. Now, you need you need controllable guy that got potential against Saint John's this weekend, holy crap Williams diet. So I mean, it's ridiculous. And the more you're going to get them. Hereby by understand. But you look at if they made the deal the off season, and they waited until after they know what the lottery is all I can tell you is the more you read about the kid the more he would embrace being here in a braces embrace being a superstar under the microscope. I'll tell you what this this list of final four teams actually helps out del Deb's. Probably right. It's out there. So now he knows he's got four teams who can bid and pit against each other all four of those teams. So I wonder if this actually does get up before Thursday's deadline. Boston's not a place. We know that Danny aines is a tremendous executive. They have a lot of pieces. So if he really wanted to play with Connery while he just say trade, he's hurt. Anthony Davis senior senior came out this weekend and said that Boston they don't they're the camps trying to steer away from Boston. Because of what the Celtics did to Isaiah Thomas. But no loyalty, but he's not loyal to the pelicans like that. I don't get it. Like, you can't you kids. I'm not one thing you're doing exact same thing to somebody at the same time. We're to talk about loyalty from the person who's demanding a trade a year and a half before they hit free agency. But such as the NBA guys how about the fact that the Seahawks and Russell Wilson don't appear as if they're even engaging on a long term contract right now. And Wilson seems like he was a little bit annoyed about it last year. And they haven't doesn't seem like they're even talking about it. He's gonna play his last year on the contract. I mean, they can always franchise him. But still I mean surprised by that they're going to make him available. They're going to let them go a little bit. I'm a little surprised by that. I don't know. Maybe they're trying to catch lightning in a bottle twice and saying that okay? Once we pay Russell Wilson we lost a lot of our good players on our team. We have a same young defensive team right now with a strong running game came we go out and maybe find the next Russell Wilson, which is hard to do. Because. You'll every Russell Wilson. It's a cow bowlers choice. Smith is a is hard to find especially in the third row. But if they can find one, oh, what did they give up the far McCollum Murray? Russell wilson. What? We have to move up pretty far they were looking at Josh Allen last year. You were saying yes, I was reading this. This is breer had this dot com. He said Seattle kick the tires on quarterbacks. Like Josh Allen last spring. It's not a big secret. That's what got Wilson's attention and then Schefter reported Sunday. There's no talks about a new deal. Is there reason for concern? Maybe not yet. But if this drags on. We'll Seattle spend chunks of March and April evaluating quarterbacks. Thirty years old. Russell Russell Wilson is thirty years old right now. The giants you give up the six pick for Russell Wilson. And without get done. Now, I would imagine a read option sitting around with saquon and his ability to buy time definitively cutting you like. Russell wilson. I think the fan base would understand. Actually, I'm not sure this fan base berry attached Eli manning. So I don't know. Matting not in that NFL one hundred commercial last night every single person Peyton Manning was in it. Yeah. Was in it. Odell was in it. I did not. Was in it. I don't think he was. I don't think he was. Maybe the schedules or maybe you shouldn't be in it. That come. Oh, man. I don't feel like somebody else and outside of the radio six. Champion can't get in the commercial very special birthday wishes this weekend. Yeah. You know? Sometimes social media is a is a terrible rod sewer, and sometimes media is a very hilarious rotten sewer and the New York Mets. I think thought they were doing something. Good by wishing Jason Vargas,.
