"I think it would be reasonable to expect, let's see, they play 17 games. Average average about two or three catches a game and I would expect some deep shots. So I want to see, I would say upwards ceiling a handful of really big plays for this team, certainly as he becomes comfortable as they as they go down the stretch in the season. I think that that's the reason why I wouldn't go nuts. Yeah, the Patriots put a little bit more pressure on the pick by trading up into the second round to get him. But look, they talked about. Devonta Parker, Nelson Aguilar, Kendrick Bourne, Jacoby Myers, time Montgomery. These guys are all proven NFL players. I do think it's a very crowded receiver's room. And I don't think everybody's going to be there in ago or could be the odd man out. Depending on how things flash in training camp, but they don't need taekwon Thornton this year to be great. Nelson Aguilar is not on the team next year, whether he's here or not. He's a free agent. So you're going to need to replace that deep threat. We've talked about the draft three inch and the draft are both a year down the road. Maybe this is a pick for the future, but they need a little bit of bang this year out of that buck. And I think they'll get it. I think they'll get some big plays where patriots fans get to get all revved up and think about him in the off season and how good he's going to be in year two. All that stuff. I think we'll get those fireworks. I've got two more things about the wide receiver situation..

"Contracts, especially in their rooms. Like, you know, all right, so Nelson Aguilar gets a big contract. Who's going to complain on offense? Well, Damien Harris. What did you say? To feel Harry. Yeah, Nikhil, what's Nikhil Harry get a complaint? Oh, yeah, he had his trade request last year. Oh, okay. Sorry, Nikhil. Sorry we hurt your feelings. He wanted to get paid off of your 35 receptions or whatever. Like, you know, and that's sort of the point. I mean, the Patriots, I think Belichick was comfortable doing that last year because he realized, well, there's nobody really tick off in my locker room. It's not like I have like, well, except, you know, JC Jackson, but I think we kind of knew what was going to happen with JC Jackson for a while. The Patriots offer him a contract extension. I'm sure it was at least on par with what Nelson Aguilar got like $12 million a year, probably more, probably more in the $15 million range. So JC Jackson couldn't really complain. And you knew that he was basically getting to his final year betting on himself and said, I'm going to try to go get top of the market. And he got near top of the market. The soft season. So good for him. So the big thing is, is that, you know, it actually helped the Patriots, well, no, I don't want to say that because you want the good young players. And the reason that the Patriots are in this spot with their rosters because they didn't draft well for four years as Robert Kraft said. But the Patriots basically had to import talent to make up for those drafts. They did it. There's no one there to piss off, I'm trying to think if Damien Harris, Damien Harris could get mad if something happens now because he's in a contract here, but up until now, no chance for disharmony, but I do think if you're a guy like Jordan poyer and you look at what the bills are doing, be like, you just hand it von Miller all this money and he's never played here before and here I am..

"The idea of because I've talked about this before like they would run matchy just vertically out of the slot at Alabama and Mac was great with that. Mac was great, 'cause it's covered differently. It's a little more maneuverable as a quarterback. Take Nelson Aguilar, put him in the slot inside devonta Parker, have Parker use his size to come over the mid like this is, you know, kind of a basic example, but Parker slants over the middle, that clears out you shoot Nelson agler up the scene like that, like that's the kind of stuff they're doing at Alabama, goes big receivers come over the middle and use their size and traffic, you take the quick receiver, you run them up the hashes where he's dealing with a slot corner of safety, not a boundary corner, like that's where max success at Alabama cut came from. It's where two are like, that's the Alabama offense. That's when they're at their best. That's what they're doing. They didn't really have that option in the slot. Myers a good slot receiver, but he doesn't have the speed. He doesn't have the speed to play that way. If Nelson Aguilar can start taking some snaps out of the spot out of the slot, that could be big. That could really change the way things move. Yeah, because I think a lot of us make sense. No, yeah, I think a lot of us have been this is where I was going with the next honestly. I wanted to talk about Nikhil Harry too, which we'll get here in a second, but this speed slot role that Nelson Aguilar could potentially play now that they have a true outside guy on the boundary and he doesn't have to do that. It's a big part of this trade in my mind as well because like you said, if you watch Alabama, whether it was waddle, a smithy, whoever it was, Matt Jones had to have had, I don't know the exact number. I mean, 50 plus completions off of over routes, right? Crossing routes going over the middle of the field. And like you said, it's a different route because what you're doing really is you're attacking the safety in the middle of the field. And you're trying to stretch. A lot of teams will play it single high, especially against teams that run the ball well, and you get that over route going against a single high safety, and you can run into a big pocket of space on the other side of the safety. And that's a big part of that offense. When you look at it and you say, okay, well, why does throw that ball well? That route, as much as it's not the timing Julian Edelman Wes Welker option route over the middle, you have to pace it out, right? Because the receiver is moving from left to right. And you have to be able to hit the spot with the ball. You have to be able to throw it to the landmark that coal receiver and quarterback are on. So that timing and accuracy is really important in order to make that route work..

"The fastest and easiest way to wager on all the popular sports and games, bet online, where the game starts. All right, so options for the Patriots will get to in a minute first. Let's look at what they need. This is what I've got written down, Greg. Cornerback, obviously. That's my number one name. I've got cornerback offensive line, linebacker, and wide receiver. Those are my four top needs. Yeah, we're pretty close. I mean, I have number one cornerback and Mitchell is not that, or at least I hope he's not that. You're hoping that who knows Sean wade pops, and he's that guy. But number one cornerback that could happen in the free inch C or draft. Middle linebacker, you know, like miles Jack is out there. There's a street free agent where it doesn't factor in the compensatory picks, I assume he's going to be very popular on the free agent market, but that's sort of like the ideal guy. You put miles Jack with Mack Wilson and camera grown and raekwon McMillan. All of a sudden, you've transformed into an athletic linebacking core. If they get miles Jack, oh, I'll be happy with that. I have X receiver. A boundary receiver. To replace Nelson Aguilar, if they can get somebody like an Allen Robinson and we'll mention a few more names here, then I'm trying to trade Nelson Aguilar back to the Raiders and McDaniels and ziegler, who obviously signed off on him when they signed him last year. He developed he really popped under Edgar Bennett, who McDaniels retained as raiders receivers coach. And then I have nose tackle as next. I want better than Devon. God shall if I got to move God child to end, so be it. And then number 5 would be my slot receiver and then left edge as we talked about with beefing up the password. So that's sort of where I see the needs. If people want to go over to BSG, I have, you can see my whole deck chart, my whole needs list, all that stuff is available over there. And just to throw a name out there, and this is going to continue to happen now over the next few hours. Of course, we're doing this live. So when you finally see this things have already happened most likely, but as I'm looking on Twitter, Eric flowers has been released by the commanders now, flowers was a disaster in New York. They moved him up front though. They moved him. And he played pretty well. They moved him out of tackle. They put him at guard. And he was cut. He was making about 10 million a year or whatever it was. So, you know, that's just the name. And you're going to see more offensive lineman, I think, release. You're going to see a lot of other guys cut because teams got to get under the cap. They've got to get to that number. So we'll see if more names pop up here offensive line in those positions of need. The salary cap situation, Greg, there are about $12 million under they can create more room now. Do you think they'll do that as we get closer to this deadline? Do you think they'll look to create more room by possibly restructuring judean and doing other things?.

"Maybe Robbie Anderson's a little bit better, but I find this hard to believe that the Patriots are truly interested in this move because imagine the contract, Robbie Anderson's dude $13 million in cash next season for whoever acquires him in a trade. That means that he will count $13 million against the Patriots salary cap if he is the acquisition that they make. It's a million and a half dollars less than Nelson Aguilar on his current deal. Is that that much of a difference, right? Here a million bucks there. We're not talking about a massive, massive difference in contract. Then you also get into the fact that he is under contract for 2023 as well. There's an out. He doesn't have any guaranteed money in his deal for 2023, but you still have to figure out what you're going to do with him beyond that point if it doesn't end up working out. But I think the bigger story out of all of this is, again, not necessarily the name Robbie Anderson because I'm sure that we could throw out a bunch of different names that the Patriots have called on over the last week or so as a set the table for their off season. I'm sure they've kicked the tires on several of these types of players. The bigger story to me is that the Patriots and we've talked about this on the pod are at least entertaining the idea that Nelson Aguilar needs to be moved. And he is not the guy that they want to hold that 13, $14 million cap hit as their ex receiver. So now what they'll do is they'll stack it up, right? They'll figure out what Calvin Ridley is worth. They'll figure out what Robbie Anderson's worth. They'll complete their evaluations on the draft class and they'll come to a conclusion about who's the best value best signing out of all those types of players. Throw Amari Cooper in there as well. All those guys will get stacked together and they'll figure out what the best course forward is. But Nelson Aguilar in particular, it sounds like they want to move on if they can. And I don't blame them for it..

"And I think I'm missing somebody there, but those are really the three big ones in terms of the speed in the middle of the field on defense. Yeah, tremaine Edmonds is the other made Edmonds is the one I'm missing. I know I was missing one. Thank you. Yeah. But you're going to occupy at least one of those guys. If you can occupy another one of those guys with a back or a tight end, which is why it would have been great, you know, to be able to say John who's somebody who's going to draw coverage. We don't know exactly how much he's going to draw in this game, but they should have opportunities. Now, Mac Jones and the receivers have to capitalize on those opportunities, but they should have opportunities in that intermediate range. And that's where they, if they can start hitting those, the bills are in trouble. If max coming out and boom, 8 yard slant, boom, ten yard in 8 yard, you know, 8 yard cross or and he's, you know, in between the numbers in that range right around the sticks, that's when you know things are clicking and that's when the bills are in trouble. The games where they've been able to make those throws and make those plays, they've had success moving the ball. When that's taken off the table, and teams have entirely taken those plays off the table, especially with Nelson Aguilar not on the field, that's when the offense kind of just is forced to sit on its hands, run the ball and wait for the defense to make a play. Yeah, it's funny because in this game against Miami, Mac Jones only had two attempts at that intermediate level because that was exactly where the dolphins were trying to take away as well. But when they eventually did, and I mentioned that post crosser to hunter Henry, they ran that exact same play on the next drive. Post cross and what they actually got the second time was the check down and Damon Harris. David Harris gave him 13 yards on the check down because the linebackers were screaming downfield to try to get underneath the crossing route because they had just hit it on the drive before. And then all of a sudden that starts to open up the underneath, it starts to open up the intermediate. So it's not necessarily a volume thing, right? It's not like they have to go out there and throw the ball deep 20 times to get the defense to respect it. It's just if you can hit four or 5 of them down in a field or even two or three of them down the field if you're talking about earlier in the game, that eventually is going to pay dividends in the long run where you can start to get into your bread and butters, which are those intermediate throws..

"I think him being on the field makes a huge difference because part of the reason hunter Henry wasn't as involved last week is the bill's basically took the safety. They normally leave over the top. All of a sudden he kill Harry's out there at the ex? They're not worried about putting that safety over the top, right? Yeah. All of a sudden, that guy crashes down into the box and he's helping either just just take away the middle of the zone or he's helping with contra Henry and man. So and they did it on some other on some other receivers too. But I think having Nelson Aguilar out there does make things a lot easier for them beating coverages offensively. I'm not saying that they're fine that everything's okay when they have Nelson Aguilar out there, but it's better. Right, so that was my next one. Was factor fiction and we just found out about 20 minutes ago before we started hitting record here and started taping. That Nelson Aguilar is out again this week with that concussion. So it's going to be mikiel Harry at the ex again for the Patriots a second week in a row. Factor fiction, Nikhil Harry is a significant drop off from Nelson Aguilar because now I feel like we're getting into full on fact with that, right? Yeah. And he is a 110% a much better, more effective player than Nikhil Harry and you just see it like you were saying and I'm saying fact obviously to this, you were saying this spacing, right? The route spacing that you can see where they are threatening more grass. They're just threatening more of the field. When Nelson aguilera is out there versus Nikhil Harry and to your point, buffalo is fine with leaving Nikhil Harry one on one. They said, if Matt Jones is going to throw an armpit in 45 yards down the field and they're gonna beat us like Nikhil Harry did against Indianapolis where he goes above the rim and wins a contested catch down the field and they're gonna consistently do that time in and time out. So be it. So be it if that's how they're going to win, we're going to have those safeties crowd the middle of the field and make sure that those guys aren't the ones that beat us. So Nelson agaro takes that safety with him a little bit more consistently. And I think Nelson aguilera also, if you give him single coverage down the field, is going to create more separation that maybe that worries defensive coordinators a little bit more at those throws down the field become more consistent. By the way, Cincinnati is in the red zone, Alabama had to take a time out because their defensive backstop tackling. Oh, good job. Yeah. The fact that you're fixed and Alex, you sorry, I thought I explained it before. Yeah, no, it's a fact, because you lose that burn or ability the team's need. Corners can catch up to Nikhil Harry. They can't catch up to Nelson snuggler. That's the difference. I think teams are comfortable covering Nikhil Harry without safety.

"Read option plays and the design cube runs on the goal line and padding is rushing stats and things like that. Those are things that I think Beckham took notice and you also just look at some of the other guys and one of the things that I've heard from people that I've talked to on Beckham is that he wants to be coached hard. I think that he looks at Ben mcadoo with the Giants. Kevin Stefanski with Cleveland over the last couple of years and says that those guys really have were not pushing me to be the bet my best self. And one of the things that when I heard that, it stood out to me was remember in Randy Moss's Hall of Fame induction speech. He credited Belichick with kind of pushing him to be that next level, right? To be that next kind of cerebral player. And I think that those are the types of things that Belichick gets out of guys. And lastly here, just from a role perspective, a vote out comes here. I really do think that he's going to play more Z than he's going to play X because this patriots offense has outside of O 7 and O 8 O 9 with moss. And that's probably the one exception has never really ran out of the X right? The X role has never really been the target's role. That's never really been the engine or the straw that stirs the drink of the offense. The receiver role as adapted from Welker or Troy Brown really Dion branch Welker to Edelman to nag Jacoby Myers. That is the most important role in this entire offense. I think they're going to look at it and see that he can upgrade that role and you still leave Nelson Aguilar on the outside to run the wind sprints and try to take the top off the defense and you open all that space up on the crossers and the in breakers and the yards after catch plays in the scheme, a little design type of plays that they use with the Z and that's for Beckham, right? Because I think if you put them on the outside and the X I think that's almost wasting him in a lot of ways. So I would just and I think you're gonna move around if they get it. But I would just push back on that because you say,.

"Last week, when we picked this game that U.S. had it at 7, I said lay the points all day. I felt like we were going to finally see the Patriots click on Sunday and put some things together. You know, broken clock is right twice a day. So I got that one right. And I know some people say, well, it's the judge. It's the jet. Listen, I think that's so disingenuous. Yes, it's the jets in the jets aren't very good at football, which would seem like a big deal since that's their job is to play football. But the fact that the Patriots just handled them and put up, you know what, 54 points on them. I do think that, again, relatively speaking, when you dominate an NFL team like that, it does mean something. And so I don't think we just sweep it under the rug. It's not like they won by a field goal here. They showed they are clearly better than the jets. And I think they showed at least some progression for sure offensively. The significance of the jets went for you Greg. Yeah, I think it was the biggest takeaway was the offense. I think that we've continued to see little baby steps with this offense. I mean, scoring 9 out of ten possessions against anybody is a job well done. And I thought that the Patriots, the thing that impressed me, Nick was just the execution level. You know, from the first drive of the game. I mean, that Nelson, the Kendrick born in Nelson Aguilar play. And I broke this down over at BS J this morning. Showed me a lot because that's the type of play where, you know, there's 5 different parts that need to come together for that play to be successful. And so far this season, the Patriots haven't been able to go really 5 plays without something blowing up. And so for Michael wenu to cut the end, who was extended. And so that makes it even tougher block. That's the whole key to the play. If he doesn't cut that end, the guy probably deflects the pass, maybe picks it off, it goes the other way. And we're like, here we go again. But he gets the end on the ground. That lets Mac Jones get the ball over to Kendrick Bourne. Nelson Aguilar at the same time is engaging the cornerback like he's going to block sell the block, toss the guy then go, then born. You know, a guy who doesn't throw the ball that often has to not only throw the ball in the money, but have good timing to where, you know, there's a guy coming right in his face, leaping to get the ball out there. I mean, it was very impressive. So, you know, that really got things off to a good start and I thought we.

"So I wouldn't play straight spot cover for. I'd play probably cover 7 and try to bracket some of those guys. But the main point that I'm getting at is you got to take away the big plays. And if he beats you going death by a thousand paper cuts, then he beats you, right? Whatever. So that's what's going to happen. Then fine. But as long as you do that, you keep yourself in the game. If you're giving up 60 yard bombs left and right because you're trying to blitz and play man coverage on the outside with Jalen mills on Antonio Brown, then you're going to lose a game a lot faster. Yeah, you're right. So I would play into that a little bit. Offensively, they don't have a very good secondary. Their defensive backs are definitely vulnerable. I think you can actually attack them in the secondary, but you got to be able to block it up. Right. And that's going to be the biggest test of all. Maybe that they faced all year. Because Todd Bowles knows how to bring it, right? And he's going to bring it from everywhere. It's going to be disguised pressure that's going to be pressure from different angles. It's going to be pressure from different levels of the defense. It's going to be all over the place. So to me, yes, the secondary is vulnerable. Yes, you can feast on some of those matchups. I actually think if they can protect it, and Nelson Aguilar might ask some opportunities down the field as well because they've got a ton of big plays in the secondary this year for the bucks. But you're going to have to protect Mac. And I just don't know if they're going to be able to do that long enough and often enough to be able to put up points with Tampa Bay. But if they can, again, I like the tight ends this week. I like to tight ends. I like drawing the ball in general because you're not going to run it on Vita van and Dominican Sue, right? You're not going to try to run the ball against his team. So I think you definitely have to throw it. And I think you have to throw it as much as possible, but it's definitely going to be a tough matchup for the Patriots. And the drama's gonna be with the drama is the one the last thing and I was gonna bring this up on Thursday or in the preview show. But Boswell hit on it really quick here. Do you think that Brady has any sort of butterflies or nerves coming into this game at all? Do you think that that could be a factor early? I'm not saying eventually he's going to come out of it and he's going to be Tom Brady, but do you think that it might the emotions could potentially get the best of them a little bit early on in this game? No. If it was last year, maybe, but yeah. He's taught, come on, this.

"Of hand, including there was one play where, oh, it was and I'm sure we'll talk about this. Because there's a lot of questions about the coaching. The infamous Bolden run Bolden run Johnny Smith checked down in the red. I did not understand why he checked it down. It was three man rush. He checked it down very quickly to John who he had plenty of time. He should have probably tried for a touchdown. He had stuff maybe coming open in the end zone would have pushed the envelope there. But so overall, Mac, I would say that, you know, I think I gave him like an a minus in the first game. I gave him a C minus in the second game. I would say today it's more turning to a D in this game. And so but this is what pressure does Nick. This is why the first thing they got to do is they got to figure out the protection and how to protect this kid. Because they can not leave him exposed like this. This is like it's not there yet, but if it keeps going this way, it's like David Carr and like Houston. Like if you keep letting this kid get shelled back there without any help with Nelson Aguilar looking around with his palms up all the time and Johnny Smith dropping passes like it's trending in a poor direction. They need to figure it out. They need to hopefully this is a wake-up call for everybody, the coaches, the players, where they need a reckoning and they need to figure out how to get things back on track because it's going in a bad direction. I'm not going to kill Mac Jones. Look, I think a lot of the stuff that has happened with him over the past couple of weeks, especially this past week. It's not on him. Now I don't want to excuse everything and say, oh, he's playing unbelievably well. I'm not saying that. What I'm saying is it's really difficult to judge and evaluate a rookie quarterback when pretty much everything around him sucks in on Sunday. Everything around him sucked in the office line has been a huge, huge disappointment. I don't know what's going on, but I'm getting tired of watching the quarterback get drilled. I'm just getting tired of it. We thought this offensive line was going to be top three in the league. You can explain some of it with the Trent Brown absence. But the rest of these guys, you got four out of 5 of your starting offensive line out there. They need to be better. It's as simple as that. And until that happens until this young man is protected until we have receivers catching the damn football, then I'm not going to sit here and kill the guy. Let's see what happens if you had some freaking help. Stretch up something else. We've talked about team speed for a while, Greg, especially on the defensive.

"I'm Evan Lazar alongside me as always is Alex barth and Alex. We are actually going to talk about the game this weekend. I know that that's a big shock to a lot of people that have been covering the team this week or following the theme, I should say. But the Patriots have a game this Sunday against the New Orleans Saints and on this show, we are going to focus on previewing that matchup and I have a few big picture thoughts here on this matchup and on this patriots offense in general. Let's start with the Patriots offense in general and then we can get into the matchup. The first thing I want to say is we spoke to Johnny Smith hunter Henry and Nelson Aguilar on Thursday, Alex, dad at Gillette. And all three of them had glowing. I mean glowing remarks for offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. Aguilar called him a very, very, very special coach. I think there were three varies in there. And Johnny Smith said, hey, this is not my offense. I'm coming in here and trusting this coaching staff to use me properly and use the pieces at our disposal properly. Hunter Henry said a similar thing. My point that I'm getting to here is something that I've been driving home for a while now and that is the onus is on Josh McDaniels here to make this thing work, right? Because they have four pass catchers that they've brought in and free agency. Those three that I just mentioned and Kendrick born that last season produced in their last stops. They produced in 2020 for different teams. Nelson Aguilar had nearly 900 receiving yards and 9 touchdowns or 8 touchdowns for the Raiders last year..

"You know, Nick folk wasn't ready and they were prepared to run with Norden as the kicker or was it they kept routine on the Ross? 'cause it was the only way to keep them and they knew they could get folk through. The initial tweet from who first reported this again was a email. So remember, the initial tweet said nordine had won the starting kicking job. It actually didn't even say folk was being released. Yeah. So, you know, I'm inclined to lean that they're gonna give nordeen a start here. And just see, like you said that tryout, but also like you said, do you want this is going to be a close. It's probably going to be close game. And I actually think it's going to be a pretty low scoring game, too. Just for a number of reasons. I think it's going to be a low scoring game. Do you really want nordean in a game that projects like that when, you know, you could have fully meet them? And then let nor dean get his trial next week against the jets 'cause you're gonna beat the bag out of them. They don't have anybody. So I'm gonna say 14. That's my pick. I don't feel I wouldn't put any money on it. Hang on. I have a quarter here somewhere. I'm a flip a coin on it, but you give your take. I'm gonna find a coin. I think it's gonna be full now they have two elevations for vocal for they had to put them on the 53. They also can only elevate I believe they can only elevate two guys, right from the two guys in a player can only be elevated twice during the season, COVID stuff aside. Right, so if they elevate if they decide that they have to elevate Nick Foles, Quinn's not ready. The other spot's gonna be taken up by Brian Hoyer, right? Because they need a better one. Yeah. So Brian Hoyer is automatically won. So the problem that you kind of run into with Norden is being elevated is a guy like miles Bryant or a guy like Christian wilkerson Nelson Aguilar is a no go in this game, right? Those guys are gonna have to stay on the practice squad for this game 'cause you're not gonna have the spot. So you said earlier in the show, you almost have to figure out, okay, is Jalen Miller's gonna be healthy? Does an agal are gonna be healthy? Enough to play on Sunday. That does dictate a lot of things about this kicker. Not that they absolutely have to go in ordean and that situation, but they'll be short handed at wide receiver and cornerback if they have to elevate folk and Hoyer that those two are locked in and then you can't elevate a guy like miles Bryant or a guy like Christian wilkerson. Heads nor details folk..

"It is interesting that the guy like Nelson Aguilar, for example, has nothing more caught a pass in two weeks because I was out there at joint practices against the eagles. He had a great first day in Philadelphia. Second day, not so much, started dropping passes already, didn't catch a ton on that day. And then all he was hurt a little bit this week, right on and off the field a little bit this week. But he's gone really quiet. He's gone really quiet. Johnny Smith has made some plays this week, certainly made some more plays yesterday than today, but he's made plays. I think that he's been fine. Hunter Henry's still in the red non contact Jersey. Kendrick born in Jacoby Myers have been solid. Myers has certainly been very, very good. Born's been more okay, right passable. And his role, I'm not overly concerned about the weapons, but I definitely don't think that they're busting down the door with these weapons either, right? This is what a great receiving core. But it will definitely help if hunter Henry is back out there by week one. That's for sure. That's gonna be a big difference. And I think sometimes just with the lack of contact, even in fully padded practices, you can't fully see what the running backs will do in the passing game. So I'll say that. But yeah, outside Jacoby Myers who, by the way, he's been fantastic in is going to be a real find is UD FA. I think he could be a legitimate slot receiver in the NFL. I think he's there. But with agaro, and we talked about this at the beginning of camp, right? There's going to be drops. That's the player he is. That's why he's not an elite talk to your wide receiver. He is elite speed. He is elite agility he can get down the field, all of that is a good route runner, but if you don't catch the ball, it's tough and with him kind of what you expect is all right, there's going to be a big place there's going to be drops. You just need the big place to outweigh the drops. And that's what was happening at the beginning of camp. It was maybe dropping a ball of practice, but there would be two, three, deep plays that he would make and take off the defense. That skills tipping back the other way now, where it feels like there's more drops than home runs. And if he's going to do that, it's going to be a problem because their whole offense is predicated on it and if he'd just becomes a guy whose speed is there to keep the defense on us, but you're not really using it. All right, well, you could have had to me your bird back for a tenth of the cost it would do the same thing. So I'm not saying agile is a total bust. It's not what this is, but you know, you want guys to be playing their best going into the start of the season and I don't know that he's playing his best football right now. You just hope that the injuries that he has suffered through camp that have limited his practice time aren't going to lead back to Nelson Aguilar just developing really slowly in the system, right?.

"Like, quietly just goes about his business and just gets open every single day. 6 a.m. to the hand practice during team drills. I mean, he is the best route runner on the team. Still, I think he's not the most explosive or the, most dynamic route-runner, I guess. Kendrick. Born kind of gives him a run for his money now Entourage. The pier route running ability, but I still think I'd give it to Jacobi. I still think he's going to have a big year. I think having Nelson Aguilar on the outside to give them some speed. Element is really going to open up the middle of the field for him. I had a great day out there today and import Jalen Mills had some tough times, it covering him inside. Well what's interesting about Jacoby is Jacoby was. So so Aguilar had the fourth day. Born had any of the second or the third day. Yeah, we're had the others but Jacoby was probably the second best receiver all of those days, right? Have a bad day. We were just waiting for the Jacoby date the brake and then he had that today and that's going to be fascinating because again that's all Personnel, you're really only going to use two receivers most of the time, all three guys will play. But you're only going to use to most of the time and I'm going to have to be an odd man out and they're going to make it that group a trio of Aguilar born and Meyers and I know you're hesitant to make a girl or the odd man out. I think it might be a little more realistic. And we realize yeah not the way he's performed which is the overall picture. They are making it really tough to figure out who the odd-man-out is in that group because all three have been outstanding to start. Yeah. And that's a good thing. That's a good problem. Yeah. Oh great. Well now not a bad thing at all. I just I really hope that Josh McDaniels gets real creative and runs that fight that group of five out there of a garage or born Myers Johnny with Hunter Henry, right? And you can use jaanu, sort of a tailback HVAC type, to have some sort of backfield threat and maybe even handed him the ball off. Hand the ball off, excuse me, to John it a little bit, just to give that as a threat..

"He doesn't know who's supposed to get the ball. When they tell them pass protection. They tell them the past protection. And they tell him the snap count the rest of it. He not listening to if I go, let's go double rice, scat, right? Five eighty five. X dig. All he cares about is the number to tell them the protection, and that's the five eighty five to tell him the quarterbacks going to be going five steps back. So who's supposed to get the ball in everything? He don't know flex your cops is a defense attack. He has no clue what the offense is doing. Now they've been using lies utilizing running backs by committee. So, you know, it's not one two running backs because none of them have a big enough role to Bill say something like this to me. I do believe that there are why receivers on the team that have said comments that this reporter has also added his own personal opinion on it that he could be able to write stories or things could be released like this. But if you think throughout my career there weren't otherwise receivers jealous. Are you there won't otherwise receivers that said man, if I could be targeted fourteen times like Chris, I would be different my career would be different. I would be a lot better. So for me in something like this. I've been following it long enough to. Thing. One of the why receivers did give him some comments and it's hard for people. It's hard to impossible when someone shows up on the job, and your performance goes up for them not to think that that that between the correlation between performance and that person not being better. That's all they can interpret, and there's no NFL offenses that are the same. When you put the backup in compared. Because no one sees football the same. I don't ju Brees was the backup for New England. And they went the same game. When the ball would not come out to the same people because it's impossible for two people to see football the same way every coach at the end of the week. You know what he asked the starting quarterback? How comfortable are you with this? What else did you like what do you feel because guys like they feel more comfortable throwing the certain parts of the field? Yes. There's guys that feel more comfortable. On receivers. Yeah. Just to protect a quarterback's a little bit than the Philly thing. And then I'm gonna stop during the whole bunch of separation. So when you talk about throwing the ball Zach ertz, he's best wide receiver. He gets the most separation. He wins more than other receivers out. John is no separation. He's a fifty fifty guy Nelson Aguilar's inconsistent his first several years in the league. Who else do you have there? So when the receivers are complaining, I would just like be careful because there's not a whole bunch of separation. I see the wide receivers getting isn't a legitimate knock on a quarterback to not go through his progressions for for him to feel certain level of comfort with one specifically legitimate knock if the offense is not reaching its full potential. It's a legitimate knock if you could be being more effective, and that's deceased point. Which is when they got in real time. We usually don't get this sports, though, real experiment. Which is let's change one variable. The variable being quarterback all of a sudden. And look the offense is wide open. The offense opens up the other. I wouldn't say as far as one offense is wide open. Carson wentz. Not in there..
