It's the Golden State media concepts, bible study podcast. Hello and welcome to the GMC bible study podcast brought to you by the GMC podcast network. I am your host, Sarah, and I am happy to have you with me again for the second half of our luxury readings for the sun seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost, which was of course this last Sunday, September sixteenth today is September nineteenth. And while this has nothing to do with today's episode, I, I do just have to point out that September nineteenth for some reason that I forget is toxic pirate day. I promise I won't do the podcast talking like a pirate, but who came up with talk like a pirate day and why don't we talk like pirates mower? I have no idea why we would talk like parrots more, but it is kind of a funny holiday and the world is full of funny holidays today just happens to be one of them. So. On Sundays episode. We talked about the Old Testament attacks assigned for this week and this week, this episode, we'll talk about the New Testament texts. Those come to us today from James and the gospel of Mark. So let's go ahead and get started with the reading from James comes to us from James chapter three versus one through twelve and those verses are as follows. Not many of you should become teachers. My brothers and sisters for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness. For all of us make many mistakes. Anyone who makes no mistakes in speaking is perfect able to keep the whole body in check with a bridle. If we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we guide their whole bodies or look at ships though they are so large that it takes strong winds to drive them yet. They're guided by a very small rudder wherever the will of the pilot directs. So also the tongue is a small member yet it boasts of great exploits how great a forest is set ablaze by small fire and the tongue is a fire. The tongue is placed among our members as a world of iniquity it stains the whole body sets on fire the cycle of nature. And is it self set on fire by hell for every species of beast and bird of reptile and secret. Feature can be tamed and has been tamed by the human species, but no one can tame the tongue, a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With that, we bless the Lord and father and with it, we curse those who are made in the likeness of God. From the same mouth comes blessing and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this ought not to be so does a spring pour forth from the same opening both fresh and brackish water can a fig tree, my brothers and sisters yield olives, or grapevine figs? No more consult water yield fresh again that is James chapter three versus one through twelve, and that is. A lot. Reverse thing that jumps out of me is, is that I, I not many of you should become teachers, my brothers and sisters for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness, and that almost seems to not quite go with the rest of this passage. But what what strikes me as interesting is that so often, you know, other parts of the bible talk about the gifts that people are given the gifts of teacher and it it's always presented as being a good thing. Not the best thing or the only thing because of course, Kreis body is made up of many members all with all who have a certain skills and certain gifts, etc. So teachers are one important part of the body of Christ, but this is not many of you should become teachers for. You know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness, and we could take that in all kinds of directions with today's society and how we've you teach is and and I have nothing but respect for. Teachers who work so incredibly hard to educate our children, but then moves onto for all of us make many mistakes. And so you think, okay, wait, where's going with this? It almost makes it almost would make more sense to me to just start talking about, you know, to start here, all of us make many mistakes. Anyone who makes no mistakes in speaking his perfect and then goes on to talk about this whole. It seems like there's a series of non sequiturs when we start the teachers than the mistakes than keeping the whole body in check with bridal horses than two ships. Then a great forest is set ablaze by a small fire, but then we find out that he's talking about the tongue, a very small part of our body right and yet has so much of the tone is quite powerful when you think about it. Because of course, the tongue is how many of us. Speak and. It's it's ability to well, I really like my favorite part of this. This text is with it. We bless the Lord and father, and with it we curse those who are made in the likeness of God. From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this ought not to be so. And have you ever thought about that that with are saying being and we don't have to necessarily think of it as our tongue. However we speak, you know, some people speak inside language, etc. Other different ways of communicating. Some people speak through writing, but with our same being with our same self, we bless God. And then we often turn around and curse. Those who are made in the likeness of God. We say terrible things about our brothers and sisters in Christ. We say terrible things about our neighbors. And you know, you know that saying d kiss your mother with your mouth with that mouth. Well, kinda makes me think, do you bless God with that mouth because your blessing God, but you are not respecting or carrying for God's children. And that's really what I get out of this text. I do wanna look at some commentary for this to see what else is going on here because for me, that's that's really the heart of it. This commentary. Is from Margaret Aamer the first Presbyterian church Shreveport. The Thomason professor of New Testament Austin Presbyterian theological seminary in Austin, Texas. And she says, metaphors abound in James three one through twelve. Yes, they do Margaret, and these metaphors can often obscure the point that James is trying to make in this passage. Appoint not about speech in general or even about teaching despite the way he begins this chapter. James warning, she says, in the beginning about teaching concerns, one specific aspect of teaching, and that is how teachers speak that is the control teachers have over what they say, which makes more sense, right? Because then moves on in that vein, teachers of James's day gave public discourses to which students and other, here's gathered round. Imagine how easily someone might be, let us stray by misplaced or unintended word within that discourse yet who could imagine a teacher that never wants misspoke, never once chosen unfortunate word or phrase. Can you imagine anyone who never miss speaks? You know, I open my mouth all the time and things pop out that I go, whoa way. What where did that come from? So she says that today's passage invites meditation on these singular importance of teachers in our lives, particularly the impact of teachers word on the life of those who hear her. So he didn't then continues his discussion with two metaphors the horses bit and the ship's rudder. Any makes a similar point with each of those how they aren't very large and yet they control something much larger than they are. And then moves moving onto this, this image of the tongue and how it to is very small but can control something much larger and then he ships be shifts. Metaphors. Again, the tongue is now a flame that lights a forest fire, right? There's a lot going on, but. She says that pure and undefined religion to James remains unstained by the world. Thus argues, James, the tongue has the capability of destroying one's religious practice and that of one's community. That is a huge thing right that that's that's a huge thing for one small tongue to be able to do here. James invites meditation on destructive speech. More broadly defined. One might, for instance, think critically about racist speech vitriol against immigrants or the practice of trolling on social media. Just in a few things that we do, those aren't all, you know, trolling on social media. That's your keyboard, right? That's not your tongue, but still cursing. God's children. So in three, chapter three versus seven through twelve, James reaches the climax of this part of the letter. She asks, why does James consider the tongue arrest Lewis, evil, full of deadly poison? Consider says James, how we the church speak. We bless God and with the same tongue, we curse one another. Then he moves onto more metaphors the gathering of all his from a fig tree or brackish water and freshwater coming from the same spring, it cetera, et cetera. James here invites consideration of how we speak to one another as members of the church. What kinds of output dorm, ELS produce. James invites consideration of speaking to one another as informed by the ways we speak to God for as James reminds us, we are each made in God's image. James also invites us to consider the importance of silence. Silence not only as a means to listen for God, but also as a spiritual practice of bridling our tongues. That. Like the way she just she brings up the metaphors and she puts them in context, but she cuts through them as well because that that as she says, the main message can get lost in these verses. He's here, he's there. He's jumping all around. There's fire, there's tongues, there's horses and ships and fig trees. Everything you can imagine and it it's twelve versus that really do boil down to the way we speak about God and then the way we speak to about each other. And I like that she, she wraps it up with that making this spiritual practice. So we are made in God's image. We, we worship God, we studied God's word cetera. How does that? How does worship how to studying God's word? How does being made in God's image affect the way we then treat each other? Does it affect the way we treat each other. And this can be a spiritual practice. You know, she says bridling tongue, but we've talked about silence before and how that can be difficult, but to sit in silence and listen for God's word to sit in silence and just soak in God's word, but also sometimes to sit in silence. So we're not saying something that we don't need to be saying. We don't always need to criticize right? We don't always need to make the snarky comet. We don't always need to curse our brothers and sisters sitting silence and listen to what God is telling you to say to your brothers and sisters in Christ. We do have to take our first break of the podcast. When we come back, we'll be turning our attention to the gospel from Mark assigned for this week. So stay tuned.

Before the break, we were talking about the text assign this week from the book of James chapter three. And now we are moving on to the gospel reading and we are working our way through the gospel of Mark as you know this week that reading comes to us from Mark chapter eight versus twenty seven through thirty eight and those versus are as follows. Jesus went on with his disciples to the villages of cesary Phillipines and on the way he asked his disciples who do people say that I am and they answered him John the Baptist and others Elijah and still others one of the prophets, he asked them, but who do you say that I am? Peter answered him, you or the messiah, and Jesus sternly ordered them not to tell anyone about him. Then he began to teach them, the son of man must undergo great suffering and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the scribes and be killed. And after three days rise again, he said, all of this quite openly and Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him, but turning and looking at his disciples. He rebuked Peter and said, get behind me, Satan. For you're sitting, you're setting your mind, not on divine things, but on human things, Jesus called the crowd with his disciples and said to them, if any of you want to become my follow. Hours, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me for those who want to save their life will lose it and those who their life for my sake and for the sake of the gospel will save it for what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life? Indeed, what can they give in return for their life? Those who are shamed of me and of my words in adults and sinful generation of them, the son of man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his father with the holy angels. That is the gospel of Mark chapter eight versus twenty seven through thirty eight and probably a lot of familiar things in there for many of you, you know, those who would be my disciples. If you, you know, you have to take up your cross, it's cetera, et cetera. There's a lot and here. Today's reading is actually in almost every way possible the center of Mark's gospel. In fact, it stands quite literally near the dead center of Mark's work. It marks the major transition in the story from Jesus's ministry of opposing all that oppresses God's people. And he does that by healing feeding casting out demons and all of those things that we've been reading and talking about Jesus doing. To Jesus journey to the cross. So there's this shift. We are at the halfway point and Mark shifting his attention away from Jesus's ministry and his healing and teaching, etc. And now shifting preparing us as the readers, Jesus repairing the disciples, but we are prepared as readers than to know what is coming. We are journeying with Jesus to the cross now at this point, but this section also summarizes the essence of the kingdom of God and why it can be so hard for us to accept that kingdom, the word Christ, the word Christ. Excuse me, the word Christ has not appeared since the gospels opening verse. So here we are chapter later, and this is the second time that the word Christ has appeared. We've had seven plus chapters of Jesus's ministry of questions asked about his true identity. In thirty and the answers to those questions have come from unexpected places. But those who are following Jesus have yet to truly understand who he is and what his ministry is meant to accomplish. A so often happens the disciples or kind of the last ones to know or maybe the last ones to really figure things out. I sometimes think maybe they were too close to it. They were traveling with Jesus. Maybe they started to just take things for granted, whereas people that Jesus encountered. Maybe through healing through teaching cetera had an outside perspective. They were able to see what the disciples couldn't. And at this point, Jesus and his disciples have been all over gallery gala leaks me. If you remember when we start pretty much each section, it's Jesus went here or Jesus traveled here Jesus journeyed from here. Now we are on the outs, outskirts of Caesarea Philippides and Jesus asks the disciples to important questions. He starts with, who do people say that I am. And then he says, who do you say that I am? And they answer both. They answer the first with comparisons to important biblical feature figures. Well, some people say, you're the messiah. Some people say you're John the Baptist. Some people say you're Elijah. Sorry, Elijah, John the Baptist, not the messiah. And then Peter, oh, God bless Peter. I love Peter, but I just feel so bad for him all the time. He gets it right. Finally, he gets it right. Jesus's. Who do you say that? I am? Peter says, you're the messiah. He has this flash of insight that Jesus is more than just their teacher more than just their rabbi. He's more than just some miracle worker who's traveling around healing people. He has this insight suddenly that Jesus is the messiah, the anointed one, the Christ. And then as we have this insight and maybe finally, the labels are starting to realize who exactly they've been traveling with this whole time. Jesus begins to explain what it means to be the messiah, and no one, maybe a specially Peter can believe it because the Jews including Jesus Jewish disciples were looking for a powerful leader, maybe a military leader maybe king like David Wright, and they were definitely disappointed with Jesus's pronouncement of what it meant to be the messiah. That was not the kind of messiah they were looking for. So Jesus claim repeaters claim. Excuse me, that Jesus is the messiah is actually a really astounding. Statement because so far Jesus hasn't done anything that looks particularly Christ. Like messiah-like. Peter can't be saying, you know, the stuff you're doing. Jesus reminds me of those obscure references. We find in some writing about someone who was anointed and divinely authorized to Limerick from oppression, no, by calling Jesus the Christ. At this point in the story, Peter declares that he thinks Jesus is the one who will Pira fi Jewish society who will reestablish Israel supremacy among the nations who will usher in a new era of peace and holiness. Peter is expecting huge things from Jesus. So it's no wonder then that Peter kind of freaks out about what Jesus tells him he is going is going to happen to him as the messiah. I mean, he's looking for this, they're all looking for this certain type of messiah. And now Jesus is talking about. Suffering rejection being killed, and we have to think Peters, probably wondering, weren't you paying attention to when I said you were the Asya when you were the Christ, don't you know what that means that makes me think of the Princess bride. You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think. It means feel like that's what Peter's thinking you keep using the were. I don't think you mean don't think Besigye means what you think it means. On that very silly note. Let's go ahead and take another break. When we come back, we'll be finishing up talking about the gospel of Mark for this week. So stay tuned. You're listening to the GMC bible study podcast, and I will be right back.

Welcome back to the GMC bible study podcast, and we are talking about the gospel for the Sunday assigned to the assigned. Excuse me from the gospel of Mark and would talking about Peter's assertion that Jesus is the Christ. Jesus is the messiah, but that that has a very different meaning than what Jesus then talks about everything Jesus describes in verse thirty. One. In fact. Essentially disqualifies him from being that person that the disciples are imagining that messiah, the disciples or imagining. So Peter gets the title, right? But he gets the meaning wrong. His confession uses technically accurate language, but he cannot yet see what that actually means. He can't. He. He uses the right term, but he's missing the big picture. Jesus identity doesn't just include his eventual death and resurrection. It's actually defined by those things, and that would have been really hard to understand lacking the gift of hindsight that we have. We know Jesus story. We know how it actually turns out right. Lacking this gift of hindsight, how would we have reacted to what Jesus was telling us? If we had this very specific set of qualifications for what we thought the messiah would be, how would we react if Jesus then started talking about betrayal. Arrest, torture, death, it cetera. Yeah, we're hitting they're getting the. They're having to rear readjust their entire way of thinking. This is not the messiah that they thought they were getting and what about us. We may not always get the God we want right? Because. Let's back up Jesus's announcement. Is that often we? Yeah. Backing up here. We look to God for strength right often, and that's exactly what the disciples are, picturing the messiah as being is the strong, maybe military leader who will do certain things and restore Israel to what it was before Roman occupation. And Jesus is saying, in fact, God actually often comes to us and meets us in our weakness, how much more week can you get? Then God sending godson as this newborn tiny baby, very vulnerable, very, very vulnerable. Jesus moves from his moves on from describing what it means to be the messiah to telling his followers, what it actually means to follow. And then these are more familiar words, right? We get the denying of oneself taking up the cross, saving losing one's life, it's cetera. Those are really familiar versus. But again, they are probably not what the disciples were expecting to hear. The phrase losing your life is important to understanding not just Mark story of Jesus, but the whole of Jesus's ministry and mission as well as the kingdom of God itself. These words turn out to be for Jesus as he does in fact lose his life and finds it again in the resurrection. They turn out to be true for Jesus. Could this also be literally true for us. Obviously, eventually we're all going to die and we place our trust in the promises of the resurrection that will give us ever last in life with God even after death. But in what ways have we also experienced losing our life as the key to receiving it back again, for instance, when we give a gift to another. We often recognize, do we often recognize how much we receive in return or have you discovered on occasion that only by loving another? Do you feel yourself to be loved. Or have you have you ever gone without so that someone else could have more and then felt richer as a result of that going without. Or that there's no better way to find a friend than I to be a friend, right? And that unexpected rewards can come through sacrifice. There's there's numerous examples that we could bring up. It's easiest for me to see these examples in my nieces. You know, always bringing up my nieces and I so often see God's work in children, whether that's my nieces or whether that's the children I used to work with or the children that I encounter church cetera there so open, especially especially when they're younger, you know, before they get to kinda that adolescent teenage years and then things shift a little bit. But think of those small children in your life who are so open with their love, and they're so open to giving and receiving that when I was when I'm with them, I often feel like I'm the one who receives a wonderful gift simply because I love these amazing little humans. It almost seems unfair how much I get out of that relationship being just for loving them. And it inspires me to constantly strive and seek to make those relationships better so that they always always know my. Love for them even when they do go through those teenage years. And several of them are there one of them's now in her twenties. So how do I show them my love for them? And that is always there. In these kinds of loving gifts. We're giving glimpses of the inverted logic of the kingdom of God. It's inverted logic because it's so dramatically different than the logic that runs the kingdom of the world that we live in right that logic, the logic of the world suggests that the only way to find security is through possessions or power or wealth, or some combination thereof, and that only by having more can we be happy only by satisfying all of our wants? Can we ever be content that logic, this earth logic operates on a notion of absolute scarcity and therefore it pits us against each other in a kind of a winner-takes-all competition when it comes to love. It's all around us because it's the logic behind almost every advertising campaign, right. Think about every commercial you've ever seen in how it makes you think you need this product and how that product is going to make everything better, but. It's also behind political rhetoric is also behind commercial decisions, cetera, et cetera. And this was the logic that was the driving force behind. So many things that were going on. I mean, that is driving force. Excuse me, this is the logic that is the driving force behind so many things. You know, we gather, we gather, we gather, we must have this. I just, I need this right deserve this, and there's a lot to be said about that kind of thinking. But against all of this, Jesus urges us to give of ourselves to put others first to take up burdens on behalf of others of our brothers and sisters in Christ, and doesn't that sound different and also similar to what we read in James, right? What if we were to speak to our neighbors, the way we speak to God or think of our neighbors the way we think of God loving us. So it's no wonder that the cycles disbelieved what Jesus said, but not just the cycles, it's no wonder that eventually Jesus g. Sus ministry was rejected by so many people and his his ministry ended on the cross. It's no wonder that his words are met with skepticism when he says that an order to enter the kingdom of God, you need to be last not first Jesus here is proclaiming an anti kingdom in it. So utterly opposite of what we imagine a kingdom should be. And this logic that seems so opposite to always have encountered actually invites us to the scupper ourselves in our lives by receiving our identity as beloved children, rather than trying to earn it through compliments through wealth through power, etc. Were receiving our identity where not earning it. It invites us to find our purpose in serving others rather than accomplish in accumulating goods. It invites us to imagine that our lives and the lives of those around us have infinite worth simply because God chooses to love us apart from anything we've ever done or not done anything we've ever said or not said, God's kingdom is about life. Not the pseudo life that we've been persuaded by advertisers is the best we can expect, but real honest to goodness. Life. Can you imagine a place where people felt they could really be themselves and know that they were loved and accepted as themselves? That's the challenge and the invitation that Jesus offers here. All we have to do is here it is so simple to do is trade what we've been led to believe in life that believe is life for what really is life. And that's incredibly hard because so much money and energy has gone into those advertising campaigns into convincing us that the best we can expect is some sort of process where we only get what we deserve, right? We'll thank God. We don't get what we deserve. Thank goodness. We get what God thinks we deserve. So if we can let go even for a few minutes, we can let go of all of that earthly thinking rather than kingdom of God. Thinking will discover that God's still loves to create out of nothing to raise the dead to new life and to give each and every one of us so much more than we either deserve or we can even imagine. That's the logic of God's kingdom, which is almost the exact opposite of the logic that the world would tell us, right? But that is the truth that will lead us to the gift of life. Nothing on earth can give us that same gift of happiness and love that taking up our cross and being followers of Christ can give us. And so hopefully as we go through the rest of this week, we can experience that joy as we follow Jesus. As we strive to love as God loves us as we strive to give love as we receive love from God. And that seems like a really great place to end right? I encourage you to think about that to to go through life and notice the places where you are giving and receiving love and how those reflect your relationship with God. Thank you so much for joining me. Please join me again on Sunday. We'll mill turning our attention to the text, the sign for the eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost. Until then have a great week and please remember that you are a beautiful and beloved child of God. Thank you.

So like, that's SOL, aka Ben, how're you doing brother. Mike every day is a good day to be alive is episode. Thirty three Mike initially said thirty four she's going to be so excited. That's that's the pump free number the got to get a new one because Dextra McDougall who was picked up a week ago has the number the reason I bring up pumps free. Again, though is because Derek Barnett now is this legit because Derek Barnett is out for the season with a shoulder injury the surgery I need a New Jersey bad for the season. My jersey bat was on Derek bananas inside spin move. And now that can't happen. And so I needed New Jersey. And so at the behest of b l g may he? I have selected Donell pump free touchdown to be my New Jersey bet if the album pump free scores an NFL touchdown rushing receiving returning whatever it is for the Philadelphia Eagles in this season. Which of course, it would be conditional on him being active actually touching the football during with it. I checked you can buy Donell puffy jerseys. They do exist. Philadelphia eagles. I might like depending on what happens I might want to get like, a San Diego State ones, that'd be much cooler, and he's like a big college football holder savvy more interesting when you said that he had jerseys available to buy assuming it was from San Diego State. Now, they're eagles ones available by. So that is the New Jersey bet dear listeners, though, I asked you guys after the therefore net injury to police think of new potential jersey, bats still think of those because pumping probably he'll be active roster, very long. So we might need new ones on a few weeks. But that's the official New Jersey bet Benjamin Sollac being relation guesses. All I show the last we will ever hear of it. Again. I have a feeling when if my to jerseys from jersey bets are the two guys who are actually my way on the team, Jake Elliott. It's a fun fact and L pumper was not the smallest player at the senior bowl in two thousand seventeen because Jake Elliott was there. These are the D to smallest players in that class. Right. Never all pumpers. The smallest player. He won. He wasn't because of Jay galleon. So if I didn't both those jerseys now building up a set, they'll do incredible theme. You got going on with those? That's amazing. All right moving on from the no pump free. Again, we have some news with the New York Giants Damon snacks Harrison, the big stud defensive tackle the giants. Trade him to the Detroit lines for a fifth rounder. Ben all off season. We were told that the giants were in it to win it with ally. And that was the justification for drafting saquon Barkley at number two overall we asked if they would win a game in the first eight like honestly asked because we were not sure because we did not believe in this team at all. And here we are approaching week eight they have one win and the rebuild is on. It is on. Ben, would you think about this trait? Obviously it says about what they're trying to do now. Right. They're taking offers for everybody, certainly, and we even when they selected delve and Tomlinson defensive tackle out of Alabama and the two thousand seventeen class we kind of had the question of disisto many snacks. Yeah. You already kind of have like a big space. Cobbler don't really know if you need to of them, especially because both of them have very limited pass, rush upsides. So they did have they did have a a plethora of talent kind of in that role in that mold on their defensive lie fifth is poor return. Even for a player who you know is more of a two down run stop or not a pass first guy. Even then like, I forget who it was who said it, but Detroit traded a guard lake in Tomlinson to the Niners. I'm pretty sure fifth and Thomas is not a good player for fifth. And then you come back, and you get Harrison who's top five run defending defensive tackle in the league easily like atop fifteen defensive tackle. I think you can even say, maybe maybe. A little bit lower than I want to bring up real quick not every trade is the Michael Bennett trade that does not happen on a regular basis. That is adamant Michael Bennett was very much so about locker room, and whether I've been at wanted to be there and so on and so forth. Listen, so so a fifth for Tomlin Senator has a great deal for the lions. And then for the giants certainly looking at a point where the young guys are going to be the guys to get playing time. If you have a second contract, that's got bigger money on it. You're probably gonna you know, potentially beyond the trae block. And this is why my good friend, Michael. I have a scorching hot take for you. Boy scorching. You don't have any sirens going like you normally do with the fire trucks in the background. Should we wait for that? Or are you good? Yeah. Honestly, we weigh probably about twenty minutes than yeah. We're venture. We're gonna get frigging sirens out my window. But if the giants are legitimately in rebuild mode. If they are we've heard north Jenkins's potential to be moved in snacks already been. Moved whatever I call that Odell. Oh, I think the Philadelphia Eagles should call Adele. And let me tell you. Why? Hoo. Let me tell you why. So obviously it'll Dell just signed a pretty new contract six six year deal. It's got a cap of twenty one million in two thousand nineteen nineteen million at twenty twenty another nineteen million to twenty twenty one another nineteen million to twenty twenty two. It is a big healthy contract. There is an hour after three years. So after the twenty twenty season, you could cut him in you'd be saving more money than you'd be killing debt. So let's acknowledge that okay? Obviously you're talking about a guy who's right now. Twenty five one of the top four wide receivers in the league. And so certainly, you know, you anticipate him won't being one of the premier offense at talent in a league in the future. The eagles picked up Nelson agw wars fifth year option this offseason. Right. But when you pick up a fifth year option, you don't really pick up a fifth year option. What you do is. You say listen, we're going to put this option on the books, but it's completely non-guaranteed money. It's only guaranteed for injury. So you can step out of that contract. At basically, any time before it becomes guaranteed for the season in terms of game checks. Right. And so the really. On the books for galore whatsoever. And then after that fifth year option for for you, then have to choose whether or not you are resigning him. Right right is how much money are you willing to put down for algebra had one and a half to bad seasons than you had a good season last season in this season. He's struggling with depth of target. So if you don't know how much you want to give your number one. Do you want to give them a nine point five million dollar fifth year option next year and number two? How much are you going to extend him for Ethan when you get beyond that fifth year option? Whereas if owed is on the table the contract is in place, obviously, it's huge I'm not disputing that. But you have a huge contract to place. Incredible pass catcher eagles needed deep threat. It's Odell Beckham junior's on the best defense in the league. He's opposite alshon Jeffery. You don't have to worry about wide receiver for the next four years. And then you just move on from Adwa Ray because Adler is just going to be an I know Peterson talked about in the press conferences getting him more downfield targets, but if yours primary role in this. Offense gonna be underneath and touch stuff. Right. Where it's like well backfield nonsense. I don't need to be spending half million dollars in that next year. Right. I'll a much rather be put in twenty one million dollars hotel back junior fog, it the nine million in Nelson at that's all aglow is going to be Ray till a lot of it depends on what you envision for your after the twenty nine thousand nine season. If you think you can extend him for three years eighteen million then kind of keep around that. Okay. Like, I'm I'm much more into that plan. If you don't know if you're sticking with Agwu after the season, then your long-term wide receiver outlook right now in up to next year is maybe aglow at a nine point five million dollar cap hit maybe and then you have Al Sean MAC hawn's over wicked deal. Shawn Gibson are rookie deal. Right, Holland's and Gibson are not known quantities. Those are deaf players. You're basically just alshon you need the eagles need to acquire a deep threat at some point this year, the best deep threat in the league might be available for trade you have to call. All give to a least call I understand that you have to at least call Ben. Is there an option that you think other than Odell where I can bring you from nuclear heat to like medium hot have you have you considered that at wide receiver is there is another guy out there that fits that same kind of mentality that you're talking about but something that would cost less not only via trade in also vehic via cap. So you have a Brandin cooks who just signed. I've see huge deal with Los Angeles. And he's there for five years jumping to be moving on from them. While you need Stefan digs out from underneath Minnesota when they have him and had him feeling controlled. No, you're not. I've heard Sean Jackson is somebody who doesn't necessarily want to be in Tampa that much anymore. But I don't think they want to trade him there. I think it's just Jackson not being happy where he is. Obviously comes back to Philadelphia that somebody that would definitely be in the cards who else is interesting downfield guy. What like a saw marquees Goodwin. Mentioned today. Goodwin is slightly young. Mike Wallace probably three or four years younger than Mike Wallace. All right. My producers pulling it up right now. He's twenty seven he's turning twenty eight he's turning twenty eight Mike Walsh, thirty two. So he's four years. Yeah. Right. That's young. I hear you. But also Goodwin's had one good year in Shannon, offense, muc, you wanna deep threat. And when you pull up would you Google Mark is Goodwin age. It's literally a picture of him in a track outfit. I mean, I I don't dispute that now like I'm good with that guy was good ones. The guy who's available. Sure, let's rocket. I'm they're my point is when we talk about Philadelphian needing to acquire a deep threat. Mayan initial reaction when we when this first started be something that I heard buzz about I've heard from multiple guys in the NFL draft community and and scouts, and whatever that the eagles are very interested in the downfield threats of the the two thousand nineteen NFL draft class wide receiver. It's a very deep class, and they're actually more. So looking at the bigger body contested catch guys are these speedsters like Markey's Goodwin. But whatever when I think about the eagles getting a throat dethrone. I was thinking to myself. Okay. So like, a devante Parker Lee round pick may be fits into that mold or whatever it doesn't enough. Why really sat down and thought about it? It's very very easy to move on from Nelson galore at anytime. I liked the way that you're framing this. And I think that the way that you're framing it is going to get lost on gentle listener bees. MD because the other automatically going to dismiss it because of Odell I think what you're saying makes perfect sense. As far as the way, you're framing the day, the galore right of all my Maitha. Yes. If there's a heavy hitter who's potentially available the wide receiver position you have to ask yourself as a front office. What do we know about Nellie that we feel comfortable either a sticking with a nine and a half million dollar fifth year option, which I've said that number six times, let me make sure actually nine and a half million while you do that. I will bring up that. Because of the struggles or the of nine point four, boom. So there's that I am gonna look into a season kind of break it down. Like, I would for a typical scouting academy evil go through five games in kind of figure out. What exactly is going on with him? Because I think right now, we're just kinda speculating yards per catch. Definitely do not tell the entire story with the life of a game. So that's something I want to look into. But I am understanding exactly what you're saying. If he is struggling in. We we are. Sure if we can trust it moving forward. Right. So you could very easily like, you know, it's it's Al Sean in Phoenix four years as your wife receiver wanted to. And then obviously, you're very tight end oriented offense with herbs and with God her Ryan so like bringing in like a wide receiver one target like Beckham a lot of food go around. But he's gotta eat by. If there's a guy who would who would clearly surpass galore as a wide receiver either one or two Adler is this team is in no way, shape or form, Mary Tagore in any capacity. And so if the if the veil ability is there and eagles want to improve their deep preposition, which they clearly do. And if the giants are selling I'm calling I'm calling I'm testing the waters gotta be done. I definitely understand at least calling one person that I think the eagles made a call on. And there was a report on every whatever the case may be in this kind of why we're talking more wide receivers in that Cornerbacks right now after the long discussion about Patrick Peterson. Yesterday. Was he made a statement today in what it sounds like is at the? Cardinals have basically fielded a bunch of offers feel that a bunch of really good offers a lot of teams interested and the cardinals shut them all down. And the understanding is now is that Peterson is staying in Arizona. A Ben did you pretty much the same thing out of that that I got. Yeah. So that Patrick Peterson social blast for Peterson kinda released a statement. And then I think it was shefty who ended up reporting that previous that statement Pat Peterson said down with the president for those on a cardinal's got assurances a future winds, which like I don't know what that is like no man, we're going in the future. They all. I didn't realize you were going to win games the future yell. Stay. Okay. But regardless commitment to excellence just a little like a few minutes before that was happening. I was told that multiple teams had sent multiple pig packages to Arizona. I don't know whether or not the eagles were included in that. I mean, I would imagine. Yeah. All we settled thirty one team should have been interested in Arizona, wasn't even lodging. There wasn't even a tap on the line in the water. Right. Is nothing nothing going. So, you know, I it's it's interesting because you know, you hear that all like, you know, like the team wants to keep him overnight interesting interested in trading Peterson. And then kind of a next domino to fall as for Peterson to get like very vocal with the media. You know, oh the cardinals lose to the Niners this Sunday. And then all of a sudden Peterson has locker is like this unacceptable. You know, he that gives him sound soundbites. And then you put a lot of stress on the GM to potentially think about moving him before the Tuesday deadline right props Tarazona for never really letting it get there. Right. Like got Peterson kind of you know, they Cirque. Pulled the wagons as it were. And you know, the plan RIC Peterson are probably still get asked about stuff after Sunday's game. But no matter how it goes. They probably have enough of a handle on Peterson's frustration that they'll be able to clear the Tuesday deadline without him, you know, getting re frustrated or anything like that so Peterson we should put it to bed. But how many times have you heard all we haven't talked Khalil Mack and Jon Gruden haven't talked player in the end the team haven't talked than they get dealt. So. Yeah, I agree. Good on the cardinals for for like Joe. Shoutout. Jon Gruden who today after Oakland practice told reporters, he didn't even know if the Amari Cooper trade was official while Amari Cooper trail was practicing. There's a video of the Dallas Cowboys social site like avenue, nineteen jersey off in the blue and white and gurneys like, yeah. I don't even know if the traits finally yet. And of course, in of course, he knows this Gruden does. And this is what people are going to learn about gruden's that ego will man, I don't care about Myrtle. You know, what emerged doing? I don't even know if you still in the states, bro. Like, that's his attitude because it's all about Gruden gruden's world anyway and up at the trades for today. I'm sure we'll be talking about it throughout the week in as we approached this trade deadline, of course, we are on emergency pod. High alert just in case something big does happen. Hopefully, it doesn't happen while I'm editing this or whatever. But today what we need to talk about is. I there's two things to deal with the injury report for the eagles in Jaguars game in London. And then we are going to be previewing. What we saw from the Jaguars offense. I did talk with do wanna bring up I deduct with Zach Goodall from locked on Jaguars. We put out stand yesterday. Good friend of mine. So he covers the Jaguars and gave us some insight there, which was very helpful going. Into that. If you haven't to the injury report, Ben longlist here and Dow we're gonna play a little game. Oh, no. Is a funny joke. I'm not gonna do that to a man. As a actual person. Mike, Mike hit me up today news. Lamenting how a lot of people were trying to like really emphasize him. How how good Wendell small it has been and have viable small at is to this team. And actually, I saw be I think it was who said like all small it's been the best back this season in like kind of that sort of stuff. And so Mike said Wendell Smallwood is is kinda such an insignificant part of this team that when we go through the injury report Renna play a game of matters. A lot matters a little or when Dell small. Looks nice. It's not nice does. Just doesn't matter. Running back. Four doesn't. Yeah. They're gonna play. Listen running back four matters when it's an album phrase on saying we shouldn't categorically say running back for it. Doesn't matter. If Corey Clement was still dealing with this quad. The best eagles running back could be like stocking shows right now. That's how much of a difference. There is anyway did not participate today. Derek Barnett, obviously the shoulder. Why is he listed occas? They haven't moved him to IRA and they're still trying to figure out what to do without roster spot. That's why he's still out for the year. Obviously Russell Douglas had a day off non injury related probably to go swagger flex on somebody linebackers Nathan Jerry Nathan Gary might saying wrong. Now, did I forget how to pronounce his name Nate Gary Nate, Gary that makes so much sense. When you just said, it there when I said it out of my brain to my mouth did not make any sense say among still. Sia Malo say Amado say a Malo same. Oh, okay. Be on that later mate. Gary dealing with an ankle in need did not participate safety Corey Graham, still dealing with that hamstring being slow in being old cornerback Sidney Jones dealing with a hamstring. He is not going to be back until after the bye think he came out and said that today running back window small would not injury related personal. Maybe he needs to go Paret running back Darren sproles with a hamstring still trying to fight back from that. As just the hamstring from hell with him, limited participation DJ, Alexandra. Of course, he's on the injury report dealing with a quadricep offensive tackle lane Johnson. Still fighting a high ankle sprain that he suffered a few weeks ago defensive tackle loading Nado at the calf again and then offensive tackle Jason Peters with the biceps. That's going to be literally every week. Now, it's not gonna untarred self quarterback. Carson still dealing with some back. Issues, but is going to be back. Your biz fully expected to be in full participation tomorrow. Jacksonville Jaguars injury report who just run through this real quick did not participate winner for nets. Not gonna play a quarterback. DJ? Hayden cornerback Taylor. Pat Mun in linebacker Donald Payne those three guys don't mean. Really anything limited participation starter. AJ boy, either the cornerback dealing with a calf defensive end Kleist Campbell ankle and hip off its lineman. Brandon Linder the only good player on that offense as dealing with a knee. Oh, other than normal, of course, dealing with a foot injury and titan James. Oh, Shaughnessy, sir. Offense offensive lemon, Jeremy pardon Nell with the show that's a really beat up offense of line. And Ben you look at this roster. We looked at it as depth chart. Now. It was like this is so gross. What they're putting out on the field. And you realize that got cameramen smell offensive tackle out of Alabama. He's on the Andre goolsbee. The tight end is on. I r you've also got we'll Richardson which was going to be there. Reserved tackle tight end Niles Paul Austin Severi Jenkins. Three titans. Yeah. Josh wells, the tackle Corey grant the running back marquees Lea he's white. That's a different Mark. Usually is it is listened to you bet receiver. Yeah. Yeah. Wide receiver remark. Easily one of the homeless DB here on pro football reference anyway to mess with you that is a lot of players and this offense of roster is kind of gross before we before we get to this gross depth chart for the Jaguars offense. Is there? Anything on the eagles injury report that you wanted to touch on before we get into this Jaguars overs. Eagles c-conversation just generally it's very interesting to see how they handle some of these limited guys like not as the first one that comes to mind lane is another one comes to mind because you're getting close to the by. So you're going to have that extra week of rest, and like it'd be really helpful for like these guys done with Hammy is like you said Sidney Jones or Corey Graham Darren sproles, you get two straight weeks of rest, you know, like, you know, like. Corey Graham ready to go against Jacksonville. Do you play them or do you? Let him get two more weeks of rest, knowing you've got safety problems in worrying, you reactivate it when you know, you could have gone him that extra week right risk management. Yeah. When you're coming into the by and you have this many injuries. I mean, kind of make sense you you haven't had your by weekend. You're about to get it. And it's going to help you get more healthy. And it's gonna be great. But you can't afford to lose this game. So you know, you might be asking guys like lane and NADA en even Corey Graham to potentially slug out another one, you know, to to to to grind out one last game before you give them that extra week of rest. Obviously you've had a big huge deal on the schedule coming out of the by. We have the Rams the saints in divisional games massive. So you need to be as healthy as possible odd. But you also can't afford to lose the Jacksonville go three to five. So it'll be interesting to see how they handle injuries. This week is going into it. Yes. The life of suck when you're three and four s type of stuff that you have to deal with and make decisions based on on a media. See is what he's to happen in needs to get turned around and used to get turned around quick. So Ben before we. Dive into the Jaguars offense. I wanna I wanna talk about the eagles defense real quick. 'cause we talk a lot about the offense and missed opportunities and whatnot. I wanna make sure that we're giving equal time in. I don't know. Maybe you'll call it equal blame. I don't know. But this eagles defence if you just look at them like on the surface just from the stats. I you see sixth in points per game at nineteen point seven v. Best in money down conversion rate at twenty three percent fourth in red zone conversions third and frequency in which they force punts per drive. Those are really good situational efficiency numbers. So. Yeah. I mean, you can be disappointed that you blew two leads against the titans and the Panthers totally get that. I am right there with you and for as much as we complain in. Critique Jim Schwartz and get frustrated with some of these things that you think and we got a lot of this. When we did three words, Ben if people think that Jim Schwartz needs to be fired for giving up an average of. Twenty four point five points in just the losses, which by the way, compared to the rest of the league would still rank in the middle of the pack for points allowed per game. Not even counting the games of twelve sixteen thirteen points allowed when they won. If you think that Jim Schwartz should be fired for that. I think you're barking up the wrong tree and just just wanna get that out of the way because Schwartz does absolutely desert criticism, which he has received on this show on multiple occasions, including the last show, but let's not ignore the fact that he is being forced to patch things together on the back end with injuries that they've had and having to start a cornerback that couldn't win a job when he was here with us before in when he was within the woods with the Jaguars earlier in the year could not beat out one of the three UDF as that. They're currently rostering at cornerback. Maybe that has something to do with it. That's on saying his defense also stamped out too late drives in the red zone to win games when the offensively put up eighteen and twenty points. We make all these concessions for the offense, and there is merit to some of it. But it's a mess this defensive backfield right now with McLeod and now Sydney out, and yeah, you gotta be able to withstand those losses and keep rolling like last year. But maybe we should cool it on that train until you know, he can be accepted expected to recite the names of the players see starting from from memory from week to week because right now, it's just a revolving door that said focusing on what needs to get better. The eagles defense ranks fifth worst infrequency for drives that end in turnovers, and this needs to be the week that that change is because the Jaguars are turning it over once every five drives that's third worst than in the league, that's bad. Blake Bortles has been a turnover machine took go. Get fed go eaten London create some turnovers and some favorable field position for your offense. Because that will certainly help some of that confidence. Would that defense get that back that swagger that you had back last year in also help your offense and put them in advantage situations because right? Now, they're average start is on their own twenty six yard line. That's third worst. In the league. It takes eighteen efforts. Not the offense. Not the defense. It's both of them. It takes the team effort to win the game scratch until his back. Go make some dog on place and look credit to the defense in the situations. This year where they were turnovers name stood on their heads and they stopped guys in the red zone. That's not lost on me. And we tend to forget it ever happened and lasting than a promise. I'm gonna end this ran it would be nice for once because habit hasn't happened in four games. It would be nice to win a game where we allowed over twenty points and under thirty points and one that fricken game. Even when the defense just plays average. We don't have to investigate every single part of the defensive game plan with a fine tooth comb and magnifying glass to find large sweeping faults that we wouldn't have to do if there was a win. And if both sides would hold up there under the bargain score points. Not turn the ball. Over turn the ball over Ben. I'm hoping that this Jaguars offense alleviates some of the turnover issues that this defense has had and it opens the floodgates for us because some of some turnovers is luck some turnovers is being really good. I don't think the eagles have been that close to to creating turnovers. This has to be the week. They have to put their offense and positions with shorter fields. And the offense also has to get them in positions that give them shorter or longer fields. So it's got to work both ways Ben going off the rails there at the end. But I think you know, what I'm saying we're not firing Jim Schwartz. A even if he continues on the same path season where not firing gyms works over this that's nonsense. Now, I have been the main complaint when it comes to Schwartz things on. I think the first time that we really railed into Schwartz was after the Carolina loss because whenever your team is gives up twenty one points in a fourth-quarter. You did something wrong, and you can say. Oh, the offense only scored seventeen points. Yeah. Seventeen point lead coming into the fourth quarter. Like usually expect your defense to be able to maintain that Carson Wentz. It's tough. I don't know whether or not to count the Los Angeles Rams game because I've seen Carson got us the lead on his final play in that game. And then foles just kinda picked up another field goal and kept it to a inside rain outfits win whether or not you let's say if you don't count the Rams game. Carson Wentz has never won a game where the opposing teams scored more on twenty four points. So there have been two games in his career where the opposing team he beat team scored twenty four points. They were backed back games in the twenty seventeen season early in that year when the eagles were kind of be in some teams like three or four and everybody thought that they weren't necessarily too legit. The Carson has never won a game like a high scoring football game. Now over twenty four points by the opposing team's never happened. I would I would implore you to say the eagles with Carson at quarterback 'cause QB wins. And no, it's true. The reason I say that is because. It's easiest for me to find the game logs on pro football reference by going to one player and going through. Also, I mean so fall so foles the open game the Dallas game all of those were definitely under twenty four points by the opponent falcons in the playoffs for under twenty four points hundred twenty four points for the Vikings thirty eight seven and then the patriots game. Clearly, they scored more than twenty points. And it was a really big deal are more than twenty four points, excuse me. And it was a really big deal that they did because everyone was like this is the most yardage at a Super Bowl losers ever had you know, like I was like exceptional. So yeah, there's something to be said for the fact that really this eagles offense does not find a lot of success in kind of boat races. You know, those games that are just high off tamed blow for blow. It's just it doesn't seem to be a formula. It's worked for them. Let's say under Peterson right? It just in general three years under Peter Schwartz. So absolutely you could make a very strong case that when this team wins. Is is because their defense is playing. Well, like, that's what really makes the difference is if their defense doesn't play. Well, this offense has struggle struggles to stay in those races. Like, I said in those big scoring games. I we're nowhere near close to firing JIMBO what it comes down to when we complain about JIMBO and what these losses hopefully, do for JIMBO is forced him to a point where he has to get better at the adjustments that he uses in the fourth quarter in or whenever he's getting beat up whenever he's given up. A couple of big scoring drives in a row wherever his corners are jumping at these sort of routes. You know, what I mean like he speaks on that? And he says, you know, there's no such thing as halftime adjustments in that's fun to write about talk about all that. But you just happen. Play by play. They been drive by Dr not kind of thing. So I definitely see your point. Absolutely, right. When we talk about halftime adjustments, the anecdote there is that will there's more time. During the locker room. But the reality is Jim isn't coaching craft the game. He's Sam with his guys looking at stop the offense on the field. Right. And that's where like time of possession ends up mattering a little bit. Because of how much time you're coach has to go through stuff with you on the sideline, you know? People talk about it being tired. But really, you know, you're only out there for three plays only like three chronological minutes like not gay minutes. But three chronological minutes. It's very little times like make adjustments on the on the bench there and talk about what the opposing offense is doing. So like I said never close to two firing Schwartz. What you want to see is is his ability to adjust to his personnel improve a little bit, and it was ten to win of the athletic. Why this really good point that I thought where simply when you play your corners as far back as you're doing in cover three. And then they keep on getting beat by slant after slant after slant slant, of course, they're going to be aggressive on a slug out because they don't want to be anymore. You know, like Hyun corners, humans don't want to lose over and over and over again. Right. And just putting we talked about Darby getting getting slant in front of. Him all day in that's kind of. Why they yeah. Right. But it's that mental aspect of it on your point your player on a losing spot. And that's why he might play with technique. You didn't teach him. It's because he's getting desperate to stop having completions on him, you know on. So that sort of stuff like the hope is that Schwartz gross through that. And even if he doesn't, and it's a really strong personnel defense that's been playing in a scheme for a while. And it's good defense. The hope is that the, you know, it seems like good offenses can figure them out and jimbo's gotta develop a counterpunch that basically what it comes down to. I don't think they're as good as sixth in points per game at nineteen point seven. I don't think they're as bad as blowing to fourth quarter leads. But fortunately, both of those are real things and the truth is somewhere in the middle for, sir. It has to be this week that we really have high expectations for this defense though. Like, I'm not going to be cool with twenty points from the Jacksonville Jaguars. I'm just not a number number one. Blake Bortles is. A bad quarterback that was benched last week number two. You look across this depth chart. Where's the advantage for the Jaguars? Is there a like is there a single player on the Jaguars that you would take over the current starter in Philadelphia right now other than maybe running back CJ Yeldham is better than window small would I don't think there is? Brian lenders are best players are center. Juliane kelsey. Norwell over Sam. Although okay, so Andrew neuro that's one thousand mile only one and then like, the Yeldan and whoever also gone that frigging deaths char- over one of our guys like probably just with the injuries that have been encouraged shore like be nice to grab on. Hey, they they brought in Jamaal Charles on. They cut him to Jamaal Charles back on the street. I saw that. Yeah. So Ben looking at this matchup, and we look at like pro football, focus what they expect for the line. As always that. You was ranked highly in their advantage in pass blocking or the Jaguars trying to pass block them at negative twenty eight percents of third worst pass blocking it vantage of the week. Go ahead. I know what you're going to say listen, Jacksonville, offense, tackles are so bad. They are so bad might. Yeah. I just blew my ears after screaming all this like, here's here's another. I have another spicy take after my delta. If we this is this is twenty eighteen Bortles in Bortles will slow. It in the twenty four teen NFL draft third overall. Who cares? Yeah. If this was like twenty sixteen Bortles, right? And he was young enough that we could still talk about him being a young quarterback there'd be a huge narrative of lesson. He can't you know, you can't get on offense of lying cage is with this receiving corps. He deals a lot of drops. He does he deals with the amount of drought. Keeling coal cannot catch the ball. Right. And he gets a lot of pressure. And if there's one thing that's been bad about borough says the UCF days in bad about Bortles since the first step in his pocket presence is garbage. It's don't I think about him because we can't Agassi's pre snap processing honestly better than I thought it was gonna be his velocities. There was there was one. I forget what it was. But I was watching a couple of weeks ago going through some games, and he drops back in the pocket, and he looked so cool and calm, and he just throws one out there. I'm like, oh, he saw something dude. He threw triple coverage on like, what is this? Was this? He looked he looked so confident in that he seems like the most unaware quarterback in the NFL. It's it's crazy to be right now. He honestly, so you'll this is an experience I have with him right here. Just thinking. You know, I could have been a construction worker, but I'm out here. Listen, I'll watch him and just other Olic thousand good like pre snap recognition like mad coverage on the outside take shots. Good plan. Like, I'll chiefs given him a lot of cover threes. He's trying to attack the skinny post off play actually like that's like that's like, let's get this money. Here we go, and man he'll have light assu for why open crosser across the intermediate level the field. I love like all looking off the safety and make sure the stays open. And then he throws it till like the wrong, we were so close. It's so bad. Yeah. Right. Tackle Jeremy Parnell is as a lumber rise baked powerful, dude. But he does not deal. Well with speeding explosiveness around the edge. And he's gonna see Brandon Graham. But also, Chris long is the guy who relies but left end for the us a lot and defor who's an explosive bendy player, but has struggled beat the pants off are now multiple times in the chiefs game and Chris long should be able to win the corner on him regularly. I would imagine on the opposite side. I look at our lads for death charts. I ended up messaging Mike because list as the starting left tackle for the Jacksonville Jaguars on our lads is Eric flowers. And I was like there's no way the eagles get to play Eric flowers again. Right. It's not Christmas. My birthday come early. And they don't Josh Walker. A who's listed their backup guard is playing left tap over Eric flowers, who's a left tackle from college. Which you tell you how good are flowers and Walker does not have functional power or functional speed. He's a backup guard plan left tackle, for God's sakes. He is. Not ready to handle anybody like big, Josh sweat breakout. Game common big big Joshua debut. And obviously you're going to have Michael Bennett, and even Brandon Graham from that side as well. So I expect the end St. in a big way Brandon lender. The center is is one of the NFL's best centers. He's playing quite well, he's not as agile as a Kelsey. And he's not as good of a recognition player, but he's got a ton of power. He's a ton of bricks and then Andrew oil wells, one of the one of the premier guards. I think it's plays dropped a little bit. You know, he's not necessarily was that last year, we will Carolina. But he's he's dancing bear out there. He's very agile is very smooth and his powerful player on AJ can their records kinda rough. He's not too good. So ben. Yeah. I think you did a great job there. Breaking down the offensive line for the Jacksonville Jaguars. There's not much else to say about it. It's not a good unit. Not fun to watch. I actually resent the Jaguars for what I had to go through today watching their film looking at the passing game matchup. So we talked about drops. And let's talk about Ronald Darby against Keelan Cole who has off. Awful hands. Every time. I see this guy into this paying off of them. Here's he's got. He's got noth-. He's so unreliable in like, yeah. You have to pass blame around like you were saying like Bortles doesn't deserve all the blame. That's a little bit more blame old bloke Bortles. Bloke bar bottles are fertile models. Does I guess more bland than he deserves because it's just so much fun to make fun of them? Good old bake Bortles. But yeah, the offensive line deserve some Ian sodas the receiving core as well. Right. So if there is one hundred percent blame to be passed around it. The Jaguars one hundred percent is more like two hundred percent for a normal offense. That's all condensed that one hundred percent is for them. I know that's not real math. Yeah. I'm out per cent means per one hundred I'm God. Well, here's what I'm saying. If Carson Wentz deserves fifty percent of the blame for the offense. Blake Bortles deserves four hundred fifty percent of the blame for the Jaguars offense. And they're still some percent. So. Nine one ratio. Don't worry about it. Times as much blame as they've is offense in Carson does. And then Keelan coal deserves. Two hundred fifty percent Jalen mills against Dante Moncrieff, keep Moncrieff can't separate. He's garbage. Diddy Westbrook against Dexter McDougal. That one scares me. I think DD can do some dirty things to diapers especially verse. Dexter McDougal scares me. The bad may maybe two or three plays. And I'll just speak gassed out. Michael will swell up. All that. Ben who the hell is David Greenwich NYC playing in the NFL. He has three catches three. Career catches got them in the last couple of weeks for twenty four yards. He's a tight end partly. And then also James was Shannon sannoussi who showed up at the injury report. We talked about him later he has nine career thirty one career catches in four years. Both those guys against Malcolm Jenkins or my dog aren't getting open. Ben any matchups that other than the Dexter McDougal. Mon- scare you at all mills. First Moncrieff Darby verse coal the existent made up Madden generated titans, David Greenwich for formation came out at twenty sixty nine held draft. It'd tied on state a six five two hundred forty eight pound tight end who vertical jobs twenty nine point five inches. All right, Raj jump nine feet three. Inches. But don't worry. Don't worry. Don't worry three cone seven point five. Six seconds. Is he a dump truck foyer forty yard dash four point seven nine seconds. And here's the real kicker he benched to twenty five seven times. So you're going to be that slow and that on explosive and that big six five to fifty and throw up seven reps through twenty five. It's very sad. I'm just staring blankly at I mean, it's not good radio. But I am out David Greenwich or onto an NFL roster despite good for him to fat. Yes. Amazing. He gets to tell that story for years, dude, passing attends. Okay. Here's what I want to know because I was watching this guy, and I've got one of those clips up on the Twitter timeline. It was a tight end. And he was having serious issues impasse, bro. But they're tight ends or so bad. I didn't even look at the number. I believe it was eighty six David grin which is terrible blocker, and they want awful guys. And because they want to use that heavy play action game. No, good luck. Yeah. You can't because Shaughnessy Cam block in Greenwich camp block. And then I don't know who else they even have left on the roster. But when it comes to this Jacksonville passing attack. The bad news is this. They saw a lot of cover three from Kansas City. They saw cover three from Dallas. And they know how to attack it. They bud. Nate Hackett schemed up some good cover three beaters and lake Boorda has essentially Blake Bortles through the correct pass. That's the end of the bad news. Here's the good news. The past didn't arrive where on regular Kansas City. They they had Kansas City with levels. They had Kansas City with little bang, eight posts all up in the cover three scenes ever flooding zones gray offense game plan and boroughs. Couldn't hit Jack. He couldn't hit interceptions squat a right? The Kansas City defense is so bad. It was playing sore poor site early at that time he threw four NASA. And I'm very very interested to see they said Bortles has short leash. Okay. And I'm so curious just from like, an NFL perspective to see what that means because I can take you to a point each game where I watched and say, this is the point where they ran out of confidence in Bortles. So he started only throwing routes five yards or shorter. Right. You get find in every day, usually it's like early in the second quarter of but against candidates know, the running mesh all. And it's it's we're going to run play action and rod deep routes solely. So Rican halt linebackers get pulled in and then there is the play action, and they bail deep and there were adopted the halfback that's literally so much of their offense. And it is kind of works because they're picking up five yards every play they're moving the sticks. But it's there's but those plays are designed to be like shots. Those are supposed to be like we want forty yards on this. But they're like dialing up to get five. There's nothing about this offense downfield of that scares me at all which the eagles defense their biggest problem is giving up downfield passes. So this is great. This might be a game where you can just sit in cover three and probably be fine, which I'm afraid of saying that because I feel like Bortles can Affleck on the London switch and have an incredible game. And I'm going to sound so stupid. I'm going to be furious. But this should not be there's there is not enough pass protection and quarterbacking ability on the Jaguars to threaten the eagles defense despite how. Poorly. They played I firmly believe that I'm excited to be proven wrong. But I firmly believe that is so bad. I think we covered it it this often scores on us for recruit. Anyway, that's that's that's how I feel about it. This should be so simple for the eagles to shutdown. We'll see what the body clock in jet lag and all that nonsense. How that affects the eagles. 'cause there's concerns about. I I liked the way the Jacksonville draws up there inside zone. I like the way they kind of play with linebackers mine's a little bit. We can talk about that more quite long on the podcast, but they can't execute the can execute again. The general idea is that if we talked about the desperate to infre- eagles going into Thursday night game against the giants. And if this team is as good as we think, they are they'll show up, and they'll be fine, and they'll dominate and they did did the same thing for three quarters because Carolina, and then just completely dropped the ball excusably. Now, you're three and four looking at the by half a game and a half back on the Redskins. And you've got Jacksonville London. Really str-. Ogling Jacksonville team. If this is a team that's as good as we think they are. They should be able to come out and handle this game, quite quite handily. Right. I I remember saying they should dominate the Panthers and three quarters into that game. I was so happy that I felt that out. Right. I was like this. I keyed in on the eagles and completely dropped its now got gotta get right back into that mindset of we need to come out in dominates. We need a dominant performance in Finnish. If they do. So they're clearly more talented than this roster than that's enough. This Jaguars offense are presented say goodbye to the listeners. Let them know what we have on tap for tomorrow Genta listeners. We asked you delivered because you're handsome, and we like you or your pretty of whatever it is gonna be here by yourself. We've clear five hundred ratings we have five hundred to. Yes, we do four hundred ninety seven of them are five star ratings out of the five hundred two might you. Do the percentages on that because you're really good at those. Apparently, we're still at one hundred ninety six reviews. So if you do want swing by leave us a review and you haven't yet. Whilst we hit two hundred. I will read out some and they are really quite funny. And so I like to read out something because it makes me laugh, so please go ahead of four more reviews. We need to hit two hundred now be very exciting. As always this has been the kissed and Solex show. We do preach. You're listening IVA Benjamin Sollac on Twitter at vegetation.

And and and well manned team. That's just you know, dying out there. Trying to survive with that offense very excited to see what that unit looks like up against Philadelphia. It should be a premier accident owes mash up Todd wash defensive coordinator as a lot of complex stuff with that defense, some which in my opinion is too complex. But we'll get to that. Obviously Doug Peterson draws up a really nice offense. We'll talk a lot more about depth targets. Carolina. What we spec c against Jacksonville that. And of course, you got all final predictions, including the Vegas line spread that Saturday is B L G. Making rain and Johnstone us with the official leading relation radio preview shell and what have you all a strategy to go nine thirty AM on Sunday London game against the Jaguars waking up early to some football.
