Brian Flores Files Discrimination Lawsuit Against NFL
"Most interesting story of the afternoon was Brian Flores. Late last afternoon on the West Coast. It's early evening on the east coast. I'm starting to do my show prep, and I see Brian Flores, who was head coach of the Miami Dolphins for a couple of years, has just unloaded on the NFL. Alleging discrimination against black coaches. And he shot at the NFL and his complaint, and he hit it, but he really took out Bill Belichick. Because Bill Belichick thought he was texting somebody other than Brian Flores. And he was texting, I think Brian did all telling him. Hey, the fix is in. Don't worry, there's the paraphrase I don't have in front of me. Don't worry, Brian, you've got this job, you're gonna get this job. They told me you've got the job. Good for you. You're gonna do great with a giant Brian Florence was in the about to head off to interview at New York Giants land. He had to go through a charade because of the Rooney rule. The Rooney rule requires that you hire at least one African American. You interview at least one African American for every opening for GM and head coach. I think that's the Rooney rule. Now the browns have actually lived by the Rooney rule. They had Hugh Jackson as their head coach. They got the amazing Andrew Barry, who's maybe the best GM in football, both black men who are great professionals. You didn't do so well. But but you can't pretend. And I think Brian Flores, we've got to payday
Brian Flores says his Giants interview was for show to satisfy 'Rooney Rule'
"Bill Belichick, the coach of the New England Patriots, mistakenly text this guy, Brian Flores, congratulating him on getting the hit coach job for the New York Giants. The problem is, he didn't get the head coach job for the New York giant. There's another guy named Brian. So he takes the wrong guy, and by the way, it was three days before this Brian interviewed for position with the New York Giants. Apparently, complying with the Rooney rule, meaning they'd already decided who they wanted to hire. They already were going to hire another guy named Brian. Brian Belichick didn't Bill Belichick didn't know that. Congratulated this guy for getting the job. Three days before he applied for the job, interviewed for the job, which apparently had already been given to somebody else. Now, in the lawsuit, he says, I'm standing up against systemic racism in the NFL. Says this, the league is rife with systemic racism and it is akin to being run, he says, like a plantation. The Colin Kaepernick draft the skies complaint.

"They connected. They didn't score but then defense back on and kicked him right back out again. And then the next the following drive they went. And score a touchdown with with identing dinosaur and a touchdown pass the sterling shepherd and i mean unfortunately that's all he scored until the end of the game. Where daniel jones rush for a touchdown and that's it. But here's my thing. You know giants fans i get it. It's frustrating to watch. I understand that you have your doubts about daniel jones. He has a lot of turnout. Was forty turnovers. Forty two turnovers in the first star. The last three seasons is not good. I get it. You have to control on the ball. But he played in over a good game last week. Let's be honest here. Listen to have a fumble. yes but you know what. I'm not upset with that. Fumble let me tell you. Why dow fumbled. He was running for a first down the giants. We're not doing anything. Offensively to to for down conversions and he saw an opening where he can run for the first time and he tried it now. He made a rookie mistake and he didn't slide. He thought he can go ahead first and get the touch the first down. He got his shit rock that he got his shit rocked and he found with the ball am i. Was i upset at that moment. Yeah because it killed the drive. I mean he could have scored that they scored that drive than the whole moments in the game changes but like i said i'm not going to be upset and cry over that because i rather do that than him. Fucking get sacked and fumble the ball in the pocket. Nobody wants that. I mean besides that. I mean he threw for two hundred six seven yards for one throwing touch. Now and one rushing touchdown with sixty yards in rushing yards sixty rushing yards. I mean overall. That's a solid game. It's not the best game but it's a lot better than what he's been doing. And it's he's not i mean does he. Is he gonna improve. We'll see i mean saquon and we gotta go to saquon. It will say once first game. Come off a major acl surgery. He came back and less than a year so thinking about that. He tore his acl surgery and came back in less than a year. That's a lot that's hard to do and he did it. pretty good. He had a couple of touches. Yuli rush for fifty yards. He was hit a couple of times. He good he looked healthy. He looked in shape. And we'll see what happens. It's thursday. I mean they play tomorrow against the washington football team is. You're going to hell as we'll see. I mean it's a quick turnaround. You'll have three days for recovery is going to hold up. This is really going to be a test and not to mention going against a washington team with a solid defense for the upfront. They don't have the grades secondary but they're they're leading front men on defense. It's phenomenal you..

"We don't know the whole story behind it. We don't know if educate was talking shit to connor or connor was talking shit to fuck in. Mg k. was kind of drunk dudes. They have the proper twelve. If you're drunk. I don't know i mean he any any. When he asked him about it he was like i. Don't i'm gonna try to do my best. You know irish accent here. Because it's the way he talks. If i botch it my bad they. I don't know drunk. You know you know that's my. That's my irish accent. But we don't know the more details at to come for that and dude. It's just not a good look brow. Just don't do that. Will he be invited to the other shows now because he did that. I don't know we'll see what happens. I really wanna see what happens. Grammy's though the grammy's is where it's going to be at. I mean that's really world the real artists to donna and certify level. Boy make a run for hip hop album of the year. I don't know i listen. I went down. I liked certify loverboy. I didn't do certify loverboy. Like i did. Donde because you know. I released log last weekend. It sounds a little bias. I should have done it. But i'll give you my take about certify loverboy and i'm not gonna go into deep dive as as i did. Donde unbiased listen. I love kanye west more than drake. But i'm going to be unbiased you because i'm not going to do any justice giving it. Do i think certify. Loverboy is a better rap album per se than donde. I'm not going to sit here. And say i love. Her body was produced better than donde. Because it wasn't. Drake does have some fire songs in the album. The lyrics are a little bit better than some of the songs compared to donde. But donna's just a more well produced album when it comes to beats and different things like that now. Will i be upset if somebody says certify. Loverboy is better than no. And i also wouldn't be upset if somebody said santa was better lower. They're pretty much. You know toe to toe with each other. they have hits after. Hits just wants a lot longer than the other and just wants more. You sitting down trying to fight. You're listening to the beats not really listening to a rap compared to drake where it's like all right. Let me get party. Let me get that bump going. You know let me know. Let me get lit type of music. That's what really you're comparing sepetu. So that's my take on that. Are they gonna win the album of the year and the grammys. I i mean not rap album like i said. I don't know the really wasn't any big wrap other. Maybe jack harlow will make a run for rap. Album became he make make i. It's hard. we'll see what happens if i had to make a prediction to be honest with you. Probably i i wouldn't be surprised if drake wanted. Just because of the pop the pop name behind it and the cloud that he gets. I thought they'll give kanye west. I mean just because of the name in all the show. He's done in the past two taylor swift and anything. I thought they'll do alka adult. Give him that. But i had to make a prediction..

"Recording lah here in new york from chebbi studios this is talks. Which bang that sounds familiar. It's because those are the loud applause roars from this past week's award winning. Season the vm. As now you guys may not all watch. Vm as because you know the ama's are not mtv's not what it used to be. Let's be real mtv's kind of trash now. They literally have a fuck in their being pussy.

You know that this award show came out for all you who aren't a pop culture of iffy. She and nado like myself. Who are interested. Because there's a lot of drama that happened. Mgk conor mcgregor come on now. But we're gonna also dive deep into the awards because this is it's like ooh which is birthday. Excuse me it's a dive of what's going to happen in regards to the grammy's and all these other things for music and there's a lot of controversy whose album of the year. Who's going to do this. You know we had. We had a lot of albums. Come out this year with. I mean the little non-sexist album's coming out this friday. Supposed to be a really big thing. I mean i like laws music. you know. some people don't like it. I don't know. I mean who knows he makes music. I mean justin bieber driving album this year. It was phenomenal. Olivia rodrigo. I mean sour was phenomenal. Bts drop and hits a scissor dropping heads doj cat. I mean there was a lot of people drop in good music. This year Donde you know certify loverboy. They all came out. There were good. So what are we what. What can we expect. What can we look at for these awards summer. Break down each word. I'm going to give you my opinion. Who i think should have won this award. I'm only going to give you the top five because it does really. What are the most important ones are going to gauge. What happens at the grammys. Because it's really you know that's what we're worried about. That's what we're looking at. And yeah so best artist of the year that went to the one and only justin bieber now. Am i upset with this. No because the his album was phenomenal. I mean hit after hit. I mean he had hold on peaches. It'd be just out in georgia cow volume. You'll be designed georgia. You know but artist of the year man. I don't know there was a lot of people have had some good hits. I mean if. I'm being all honest because this is all about relevancy allow these abortions and that really about the music and how good it is and i wish it was that way but we're talking about artists of the year and relevancy and stayed relevant throughout the year. I mean how do you not give artists of the year tool nasdaq's i mean let's be real. He's been relevant the entire year. He's been dropping music and it's good news. I mean look at industry baby with giancarlo. That album was that's almost a hit. You had montero which was great. I'm not saying that justin bieber does is. I'm not upset with justin bieber winning it. I'm just saying how that a war was given to that. I don't know. I mean. I also understand why if i had to pick i would have given it to. Libya rodriguez also overloaded as justin bieber. The thing is that they have a separate category for new artists. Which i think is stupid..

The giants are being smart with him as they have all off season
"new york giants" Discussed on Big Blue View
"Talking about this new york giants defense. I think that there's a funder action that we can take this conversation. Because we're getting another game of some exposure to a rookie quarterback so we got to see the some zach wilson and we know that he's pretty much guaranteed to be the starter for the for the jets and he looked decent in spots. And i think that there's some optimism there for the jets based on how he played against the giants and the rest of the preseason especially the way he played against the packers. But there's some buzz right now at patriots camp on how good mack jones looks it. Sounds like at some point or another mack. Jones could be the starting quarterback whether it's week one or if it's midway through the season when things are potentially not going well for the patriots macro jones their first round selection is in a spot to eventually take over the starting quarterback role. There's also from what we've heard it practice. He was gashing the giants secondary during team. Trill so we get to see mack jones versus the giants defense. And i think the question is here is one out of the giants had do the giants defensively look going up against him and then the the better question is how does mack jones fair. And what are we expecting from them. So logan ryan came out. I think after practice today or maybe it was yesterday and he said and today's thursday by the way he said that blake martinez himself. Had the worst practice. Dave had as new york giants on wednesday and that was the day everybody was raving about mack jones and they followed up that practice on thursday. I play a lot better. Logan ryan had an interception on mack. Jones xavier mckinney was all over the defensive backfield reportedly darnay homes actually ended up getting benched for julian lob after defense of holding finally something that he Definitely struggled with. I would say in his rookie season. So maybe that's something we should pay attention to just because we know this coaching staff really likes julian love and it seemed like a secondary was much better against mack. Jones in thursday's practice. I'm not. I'm not worried about this defense. But too much to be honest as long as they're healthy and they don't have a door jackson out there right now. I mean they had him out there. Most of wednesday's practice. But i think it was just a really really bad practice. Bad jones is going to be a solid player. Who probably will end up starting early. Probably maybe even week one. I mean he could start that early to be honest. I wouldn't be overly shocked if that ends up happening. I think just in general from mack jones. What i'm expecting to see from him is just smart efficient quarterbacking. Yeah i don't think he is going to set the world on fire. He's not going to be making any superman plays. He's not that kind of a quarterback but just as far as distributing the ball being accurate yet finding the open man getting the ball to him and putting his players in position to get yards after the. Catch that's what. I'm pretty much expecting for mac jones. Just zoom out a little bit. Just something i find a little bit ironic is that you know going back a ways. It josh mcdaniels drafted tim. Tebow and the word at the time was that he drafted tivo because he really really wanted to bring the reduction to the nfl and he thought tibo is going to be the guy to do that. And that didn't work out so well. So then wait about a decade. Or so and josh mcdaniels gets cam newton. Basically the best running quarterback the nfl has ever seen. And you think okay. It's his time and new. England has basically their worst year in about twenty years. Now they get mack jones who. I'm not saying he's tom brady a we. We heard those comparisons back during senior bowl. We are yeah. It was senior bowl week but they always kind of err on the side of hyperbole that that week but he is he does have some traits in common with radius being accurate efficient. He doesn't take risks with the ball. So it would just be kind of funny to me just looking at things. Taking that long view if mack jones does wind up being the starter and they wind up with basically going with what they had success with. And just not being able to do the thing. That josh mcdaniels has been wanting to do since got his head. Head coaching champs. It's definitely an interesting outlook on the whole situation. Because there's really two completely different. Quarterbacks play styles between cam and mack jones and we'll probably get to see both of them in this game. I just have to throw in the last little tidbit here on mack jones. I mean i really liked that you you brought up all that stuff there nick about the differences between the days of practice in which when he was lighting. Everybody up in the giants can claim that if it's an excuse or not but if they're collectively having a bad day of communication and then the next day they followed up with a fantastic performance. Probably expect more of the second day rather than the first day. They're going to be ready to go. They're going to be probably fired up so that they don't make themselves look silly silly and also exposed by a rookie quarterback if this game is going to be heavily played by the starters and i think that also begs the question of of what starters are even put out there. Does patrick graham. And joe judge to they say we don't want opposing teams to see how we're going to defend against these guys. We just wanna continue. What we've been doing. Maybe put a couple of the starters out there but mostly rotating these backups. I know it sounds like just based on how things seem with the starters with the offense of starters that they'll probably be somewhere along the similar lines but they're going to be in a situation here where they're going to want to look good against against the patriots offense in you know if they're communicating well and they're playing up to the same level of the way that they did in practice on thursday. It seems like it's a pretty reasonable task for them to To handle. But i think that that next big question is how. How does the front seven look. And who's out there against this. This patriots offense. I really wanna see what the giants front seven does against new england's offensive line because you know new england's line is well coached there well prepared and it's you know it's well built. We have heard from from practices that their offensive line has been tough. They've moved the ball. Well they've opened up holes. they've passed protected. Well so i. I want to see how pardon me. I want to see how the giants defensive front does against a really good test before it really counts we joan. I talked about how the giants defensive front got moved way too easily. By the browns the tackling was a problem. I want to see if the giants have that buttoned up yet. A our guys getting in good position. Are they wrapping up. Driving delivering good form tackles or are they lunging in going for those armed tackles. We saw way way too much of last week yet. Those honestly are the two things. I wanna see most a lot to be keyed on for this second. Preseason game and i think a lot of it is contingent on how much the starters play and it sounds like just from what we're vaguely hearing and we can't really say with much certainty as we found out what the last game against the cleveland browns..
Cam Newton Returns to New England Patriots From COVID Protocol
"Camp. Dude return to practice today. But it will Patriots did he return to a starting job? That's the question we gave nights went from pretty Coleman. I mean, but Simmons on ESPN Radio ESPN have serious examine Channel Etienne. And gave that is the ultimate question because you look at New York Giants reporters when the Patriots were going ones V ones. And Patrick Graham is a heck of a defensive coordinator for the new for the New York Giants. As a matter of fact, he should be getting looks in the next couple of years. As a head coach. He runs very complex defenses and By all accounts, Mac Jones. Let him up. I mean to lift them up two days ago. Today. Cam Newton returned to practice and they split time. We're the ones and getting their reps. But Mac Jones took a massive opportunity and ran with it. Your reaction Yeah, That's what you want to see. And that for you spent a first round pick on a quarterback when he gets that opportunity, and you didn't know when it was going to come. You don't know how it was going to come for him to take that opportunity and run with it. That's what you want to see. That being said. I still think Cam Newton is going to be starting September 12th. I just feel that he's going to start the season as the number one quarterback for Bill Belichick. I'm excited. Honestly, for Cam in Year two with the New England Patriots, I thought he was gonna be a little bit better a year ago. I still think that there is I mean, the M V P might not still be in there, but I think there's some really good football stealing Cam Newton. I think he's going to show that a little bit

"A bit of a mixed bag in terms of who was on the field. We saw like a tiny. Bit of xavier mckinney. We saw a tiny bit of thorny homes and maybe that was just based on who was available and depth. They just needed to line. Those guys up for a little bit. That just wanted to get them to the younger guys on this defense. But if we're talking about some top performers some guys that really shine in some spots where they kind of needed to if they wanted to fight to make it and stay on this roster. I one oceans immunised made a lot of good plays. I don't necessarily you can say that. He earned himself roster spot in this game. But i think zimmerman is starting to prove that. Hey when this guy is healthy he can be disruptive and he can be a one of the better rotational pass rushers on this roster yet the keyword there is pass rusher and he definitely impressed yet. Five pressures in the game had that one sack on the first drive. Speaking of that i drive. Which is amazing by kevin's too fancy. That's how you really call plays off of each other and just absolutely manipulated. The second team giants defense. It seemed like but up on that same drive. Oceans administers was tasked to be the Contained defender on the outside. And he just kinda got washed. On line of scrimmage ended up on the grounds. That's still a concern for me or administers ability to hold up against the ron. Which is a vital part of what patrick graham wants to do so. I think he definitely did. Good things on tape terms of rushing the passer. We saw a couple of different times in this game but he still needs to be better against the run right now. I would almost look at oceans as maybe that nickel pass rusher guide giant. Bring on. when they're in a four to five type alignment just to me. He looked a bit more comfortable as a hand in dirt defensive end. He moved well enough as a standup pass. Rusher but I thought his just leverage quickness off the ball was a little bit better with his hand in the dirt or kind of fake dirt like substance. Whatever they use in cleveland and yet you talk about the contain and just the the way. The browns moved the ball especially on that first series are say the first two series and joan. I talked about it in our quick reaction podcast last night. The giants need to work on their tackling. This is been two games in a row where there have just been way. Too many tackles too. Many arm tackles too many attempts at a lunge where the defender just kinda whiffs and given up way too many yards after contact. I liked joe. Kelley coming out of tennessee. But damn these yeah. He was coming out of tennessee. The giants had seventeen tackles in this game. And that's not anything that we saw from the obviously first team but still the giants second team is going up against the brown team so you think that would somewhat balance out. But they're way too. Many missed tackles. Yeah devante down to sam beal. Who had are horrendous game. Had three missed tackles the also had given mola had to miss tackles accredited from pro football focus. I'd like to see those on tape. Trent harris had a couple so that is not something that i feel like it's consistent with patrick. Graham hasn't still been the first team. Giants defense still managed just 'undisciplined football and you saw on a couple of those long runs by the ernest. Johnson's why guys just falling over does not executing good technique. It was kind of a hard to watch. It really wasn't and i'm glad you brought up discipline because that was the word that kind of jumped out to me especially watching the giants defense. When the browns would execute some kind of misdirection Sending a receiver in motion or having play action yet. The giants defense would bite hard on that and that that would have them just completely out of position to make a play on the ball and what could have been a three or four yard. Gain turns into a ten or twelve yard gain. Those first two drive. It seemed like the only times the browns were getting ten yards. Pop was if they screw something up. It's what it seemed like. I mean ryan anderson like somebody who usually from my tape study from alabama and even a little bit in washington was disciplined run defender and he bit so many times he was added position. Loss contain. That was actually kinda surprised about how he wasn't a lot of those types of reps number forty six out there late. Thirty six total snaps. You know you have to get your are is with. Get our eyes on a lot of these edge defenders because once the giants actually have some quality edged defenders. I would say Might be one or two that get released. And you're gonna be like okay. That i probably get scooped up by another team. Women's said that in a while about the new york giants. I don't think ryan anderson did too. Well himself sam bill definitely to do to from somebody who deep giants secondary when you have guys at various williams. Who have i would say. Add up and down kind of game better than the jets game but Still up somebody who could crack the roster even in a deep group as a rookie. Just because he's been having such a camp sam bill ryan anderson. Both those guys are guys who did not impress me in alaw. Minimum offense is another one group in there so conversely in terms of talking guys didn't press you. I want to say i found it very interesting..

"He shows consistency and i would say some level of just minor improvement on a week to week basis. He's probably got a pretty good chance of making this roster because he's the guy who bust his ass he's probably not going to be good enough to start or even receive enough snaps to have much of an impact in this giants defense. But as long as you can show that if a situation where blake martinez goes down. And they need him to step in or somebody else goes down and they need him to step in and he can be really really good on special teams. He's gonna make this roster this performance a thing is a positive sign in the right direction for a guy like carter coughlan. Yeah yeah after the game. In his post-game thoughts. Ed suggested that carpet fat coughlin could be pushing. Take crowder for the starting job next to blake blake martinez and i honestly could see that. Especially if he keeps improving at the rate we have seen if he is able to build off of this first. Preseason game and continue to take steps going forward. I actually could see him winning a starting job now he might not be an every down player but if he keeps playing smart processing information while he moves well in space and he does have that pass rush of billy from his time as an edge. You know in college. That could be an intriguing piece. For patrick graham especially the way he likes to call defense since call these blitzes and scheming pressures you're ultimately what's going to make you more of an asset to a team and increase. Your chances of being able to make is being able to do multiple things. That background has an edge. Rusher is going to help him. They're not going to ask them to rush the passer in really any instance during the regular season but the fact that he can do it. If in a pinch you're down a guy on a short week and you don't have time to bring somebody up just having someone who can play. Multiple spots is really good. And he's played in this defense outside linebacker now. He's playing inside linebacker so he has familiarity at multiple positions. That is going to be really really key for a guy like carter coffin. I did he is going to be an increased chance. After what we saw from this one performance. We can really take away some positives for coughing and i would be super shocked. If he's not on this team. Come the start of the season. The one other thing to it just want hit on chris. We talked about in the post game stream areas williams continues to exceed my expectations. I think that that's super positive what we saw from him. He has the fumble recovery. He leads the team in tackles. He's not really plus athlete. He's not really a guy that is going to be super dynamic. He's probably not going to be a starter but he's really showing like hey. I was drafted for a reason. You gotta keep me around. I'm going to be a a key. Backup player in a really hard working special. Teamer that make sense to me now. Why they brought them on. I did get a little flack for for questioning that draft pick selection because it just didn't make any sense to me and as i always say i walk is to prove me wrong. I really like it when guys proved me wrong. Leonard williams has done it so far and here we are. Again with another williams dairies williams. Yeah this first game. I think it's a good starting point for him. He's got things he's got to tighten up I saw a few of his tackles. Were you know he was being targeted in coverage any touch to guy down but he was at least in good position. And that's a good starting point for him. That's how he wound up with that. He was in good position. That's how he wound up with that fumble recovery know. He didn't cause the fumble but he was right there when the ball came loose and he was able to return. I believe nineteen yards. So if he's able to maybe tighten up his coverage a little bit. Keep being in good position and keep busting his butt on special teams. I think that's a pretty solid path to the final roster for certainly going to help him maybe establish away onto this roster and to stick around. It's not a guarantee if you're a late round draft pick to make the team so having a hell of a first performance when the amount of snaps you're going to get through. The preseason are just gradually going to diminish. he's going to prove himself as a very talented guy or not talented but hard working guy rather that that deserves to remain with this giants team in twenty twenty one folks. That's gonna be it for us on today's episode. We're going to be coming your way with a preview of the giants next game against the cleveland. Browns second preseason game hopefully see a little bit more from the starters conceal a little bit more from this roster will probably have time.

"Defensively the giants played pretty well considering the output from the jets offense. They had a number of different quarterbacks. They didn't really have a lot of big name players that were really in the rotation understandably because of frankly how weak this roster is and. how young is denzil. Mims had a pretty good game against the defense that one play where he carried like ten guys. So that's a positive sign for the jets but defensively started to see some early flashes from the young guys and you pointed out immediately as social already here in our notes that he looked very very good when flashing some of the things that he's capable of as a defender and i think that that's going to be an indication of potentially he's used during the twenty twenty one season. Yeah i'll say i. I like the fact that the giants used him on both sides of the defense left left engine right edge. I liked rice off from him with his first step. He generally played pretty good leverage and when he was able to get the get his hands on the blocker i he was generally successful like the one that tackle for a loss he had against mci. Becton that's really what he did. Well he got there quickly he engaged and was able to shed the block really before beckton was ready to lock in the block and he also had another good play like that on the rights. I think it was matched up on morgan moses. A i would have to go back and check again again. But then i have to admit there were other plays where you didn't have quite as good leverage on. Maybe he didn't get his hands on the blocker. I when that happened. He did struggle There was one running play where he was he had to set the edge against becton and beckton was basically able to discard him. Push him way out of the play with one hand. That was a bit ugly. There was another one where he kind of got bodied by a pair of tight ends. I one engaged him stood him up. Second one came over with a double team and knocked him to the ground. Knocked him out of the play so i i'd like to see him be a little bit more consistent with his leverage with his technique. But that's something we knew about coming in. Yeah he isn't a terribly experienced at only two years at georgia and the other thing i saw which i liked was a lot of man coverage from the giants secondary yet a coverage in and of itself wasn't particularly great For the most part zach wilson was able to move the ball pretty much at will early on the game. But just you know we wanted to see the general shape of the offensive and defensive schemes. And i liked that. The giants were not afraid to man. Their corners up end really used to try to take receivers out of the game yet the fact that they didn't have bradberry in a adobe jackson on the field that changed the outcome. But i think that does promise. Good things when those guys do get on the field in terms of things that we didn't really like i. I like that you bring up here. The inconsistencies that we saw with tackling. And i mentioned that one play against teams. That was when the backups. Were in the game but there. There were some instances where some chunk yardage was able to be picked up because of some missed tackle so some inconsistencies there we. We didn't really get to see many defensive. Starters was really just young guys at backups. That were playing in this game. But you would like to see a little bit more effort in tackling and they were weak on third down. When zack wilson was in the game they did a really good job of stopping the run on the first two downs. And then zach. Wilson was able to complete are relatively easy pass to pick up a first down on what was like third in medium and third and long on some of those drives. You'd like to see a little bit more consistency and consistency in my eyes. On those third down plays the giants are probably going to do a lot better than what we saw in this game on third down. Because they're going to have their full arsenal of starters but just from the mix of early in the game of the starters in the backups. That was one of the weaker points remains. Just the the tackling to me is just that. That's something they have to tighten up and it was something that happened throughout the game from the from the first drive of the game all the way through the almost seven minute long. Four minute drill at the end of the game where the giants would have guys in position to make tackles and they just kind of gopher armed tackles or just kind of slide off of the ball carrier you brought up the dental mims play where he is a big athletic powerful receiver but he's still receiver. And you don't wanna see a wide receiver trucking your entire defense. That's just that is not going to go over. Well you know when the coaches in team are watching tapes the net the next day. There's gonna be a lotta guys just kinda maybe hiding their faces a little bit on that play. So that's something i'd really like. The giants coaches get tightened up and really taking care of hopefully before the browns game but certainly before the regular season and then just early on i would have liked to seed the defensive front a little bit more stout against the giant. I'm sorry against the jet. Starting off offensive line now yes. We didn't see letter williams. We didn't see dexter lawrence. We didn't see blake martinez but bj hill. Danny sheldon austin johnson. Reggie ragland a crowder. These guys are definitely going to be seen a lot of snaps for the giants this year and i would have liked to have seen them locked down the run and get more penetration early on in the game against the jet starters. Yeah they could have been a little bit better early on against the starters. And i think once we saw a little bit more rotation from both teams and towards the backups. That was when we started to see some more lockdown efforts. They looked pretty good against the run as we talked about on the stream there was some really really good penetration and that highlights the one key thing from the backups that we saw. I think that we've established that. They have not like elite depth but quality depth at linebacker. 'em defensive line and what i'm referencing are the guys like bj. Hill danny sheldon and austin. Johnson were in their early. But some of these other backups. That were in the game later on. I thought they did a pretty good job and the other thing is well that we talked about in commended. One specific guy for carter coughlan who was playing inside linebacker. He is really exceeded expectations. Joe judge spoke very highly of him. He's just a guy that's excited to be out there..

"Passed but honestly. That's i don't really care about that all that much or no. I want him out there week. One hundred percent close to one hundred percent getting saquon. Barkley daniel joan. Daniel jones will just getting saquon. Barkley back we'll give daniel jones such a comfort zone. I guess you could say safety. Blanket in the passing game defenses will play him a little bit differently and it will just help this overall offense adjacent garrett used in twenty twenty. I think that offensive identity was built around saquon barkley garrett lost him in week two and then he had to just figure out other ways to try to mount an offense and the end result of that is the thirty first ranked offense in the league when the giants up significantly from maj. Jason guarantees a look himself in the mirror with that. getting saquon. barkley back is nice step towards being a better more efficient offense but i think actually the first step is getting him to week one without any re- injuries or setbacks. I wouldn't be surprised if we don't actually see him in any of the preseason games and i also wouldn't be surprised if the giants do kind of hold him back especially this first week back limit his reps to maybe even non contact drills hold him back from practicing in full shell full pads maybe have just one on ones receiving drills things like that and really let him get his legs back underneath him before they start introducing contact end practicing at full speed into the equation because we reno wants a competitive guy and we don't need him going out there trying to go one hundred miles an hour the very first time he gets the ball in his hands and then even just slipping yet. I think everybody will have their stomach up in their throat. If he just goes down without contact or goes down awkwardly this first week back so it right now just getting fully healthy like you said hundred percent for week one and avoiding anything that even looks like re injury. Yeah and one thing. I see from this. I feel as though them working him in now is working along the lines of that conservative gradual working him back into getting wraps. Because if you're doing it now with a few weeks to go this allows you to very gradually go about it with multiple weeks to work your way up to a normal practice load. Which is why we're saying. It's probably decently likely that he gets at least some snaps in week. One chris. you're talking about how it's probably better that we don't even really even see him. Maybe in the preseason or they might not even work them in the preseason but at the same time i almost wouldn't be surprised if come final week of the preseason the last game that they don't just get him out there for the first series let him get hit a little bit so that he can feel confident going into week one because that is always an added aspect saquon is a freakishly built human being as we know by how his biggest freaking legs are and how explosive he is and he's also had a tendency to heal pretty quickly like we saw what the with the ankle injury that he was dealing with a few years back. But you know maybe in this instance he just needs to get himself mentally prepared to get hit to take some contact to get hit by guys. That aren't his teammates. That aren't going to be thinking. Oh i need to go a little easy on. Saquon me because i don't want anything to happen to him. It might not hurt him to actually put them out there for series in that final preseason game and that is the line to walk. You know you want to keep him healthy. You want to keep him progressing in his rehab. But you know on the other hand a lot of times. The last step in the biggest step is getting that confidence back that you are not going to break. I think all three of us have been hurt before we've been injured and getting your mind wrapped around the idea that you can push yourself in. The pain isn't going to come back. Your whatever got hurt isn't going to just fail. That is a pretty significant step. And it's usually the last step for getting all the way back getting all the way back. That's what we want to. I dislike wanna pitcher. Saquon barkley rushing in this jason garrett running skiing because as much as we kinda give garrett a lot of crap for for the offense for the passing game and i think a lot of it is warranted. The running scheme was pretty solid. Last year with wing gaughman. They switched to a much more power. Gap centric type running scheme as opposed to the pat shurmur inside zone even though he still runs a lot of inside zone type of concepts that power gap specifically to counter game the gif counter g. h. counter. If you wanna call it that not counter that would save on barclay hitting that whole that defined whole behind to blockers. Once he gets the second level. I mean it. Put a safety in the alley against saquon barkley and that's can be a really tough job for that. He's gonna be a really really sound tak. We're really really good tackler because barclay. I mean he somebody going back twenty eighteen. Who had over three point three yards after contact which was a top ten in the nfl that season. We all know his tackle-breaking ability. His unique jukes and his unique explosiveness is unique ability to make people miss in space. When you have that defined hold you kind of eliminate the whole Vision part will vision still apartment but the whole mind like your mind goes when you're in the backfield and you're running back. You have the football and then you have to make that split decision in power gap. It's not as prominent of a trait. You know what i'm saying like inside zone you have to really fine. The whole read a bunch of different things. But you know what whole you're going to empower gap and i think that's going to benefit saquon. Barkley a player who ran a lot of power gap at penn state yet in berkeley does have kind of a tendency when you give him almost an all cart running style where you give him to three choices for running lanes. He tends to almost take the run on instant by instant basis. Where particularly if you slow the play down in like in all twenty two tape..

"And i think as far as outcomes. This is probably about the best we could hope for. But you like you said. Nick hamstrings are tricky. They are prone to setbacks prone to re injury and yet they can feel fine but not be fine. You really have to err on the side of caution for hamstrings and i hope the giants do that like you said they are just consistently conservative in their approach to everything so hopefully they will give him the time maybe even hold him back a little bit and either not let him rush back or not pushed him to get back onto the field sooner rather than later because as you said the last thing we need right now or the lesson. The giants need is for him to have a setback. Have re injury and missed. The first two three weeks missed the first month of camp or maybe even more significant injury. Going up the kinetic chain like that hip again or maybe something with his knees because you know maybe the muscle isn't quite strong enough again and there's a little bit of instabilities that you know things like that can happen. And that's what we really don't wanna see. And i think that's something that some people might not realize when you're dealing with a hamstring injury like that the hamstrings connected to a ton of stuff and i know that none of us are are doctors here but somebody who i've referenced this multiple times i've dealt with my fair share of hamstring injuries. I've literally done the same exact thing that can holiday did now. He was moving probably at a much faster speed than i was. But i was doing conditioning. During winter. Workouts and i pulled my hamstring and i wasn't able to run at full speed for about three weeks. And then when you kind of get back. It's very gradual. You can't just jump right back in there's going to be times where it feels great and then suddenly in the middle of a workout. It's going to start to bug you and then you have to come off the field. You can't really push through it. It's not one of those types of things like maybe like an ankle where it's close to being fully healed. You can power through it a little bit because it's just bothering you but it's mostly fully healed so this is something where if it's not approached properly as you mentioned chris can lead to some problems with hip lower lower back. A lot of things can can come from it because of where it's connected to so you do have to be careful with this and i'm sure that they're going to be it. Sucks to see that. A high priority free agent golladay who we have high expectations for is not going to be able to get those physical reps but again as we've we've all mentioned here. The timing is probably for being optimistic is probably the best for it to happen now. Early on in the season in the preseason rather than for it to happen at the end so as much as it sucks the guy go down. Those are the minor positives of not having golladay on the field. Let's just let's just hope. We're not singing the cranberries by week five and being like we're that's the last thing we need just do. Not linger make sure. He's fully ready for week one because we can't have hobbled hobbled kenny golladay out there being the ex receiver who can't win those contested catches. It's such a big investment by the new york giants. We need this guy to be healthy. Yeah the injured versa. Exactly that. I think that's really what they're counting on. Offensively is to have that big x. Receiver guy who can challenge down the field. Who can win in tight spaces and really allow sterling shepherd and canarias. Tony dairy slayton to play their natural roles and you also hope with all the money that they're spending on a guy like this that he's on the field.

"You could do worse than that. He's he kinda reminds me a lot of dave paulison from back in the day where he might be the first guy on the field but if he's out there you don't really worry. I think that assuming zimmer says is healthy that will be good enough to get him a roster spot now ellison smith. Everyone knows i really like him. He jumped off to feel to me at the senior bowl. I loved watching his tape. Just from a developmental standpoint. I think he's actually ahead of aziza jewelry. Just his technique is skill set as a pass rusher but he does have that jump to make from you know small school. Fcs didn't play last year. All the way up to the nfl whereas osirak are coming out of the sec where he had himself a big year last year is used to going up against guys like andrew. Thomas nfl caliber offensive linemen. And doing it down in down out so do think you're right. It's going to take a little bit to work. Ellison smith in but i think he could also wind up pushing for one of those high. Snap count roles once he gets going and i think the conversation with eller smith and what would really benefits him is that his build is very different than the other guys in the group. And you also can consider yourself. Is he going to be more of a down lineman rather than it edge rusher just because of how large he is and i feel as though in situations where they want a heavier front. They're probably going to call on ellison smith as long as he is shown the ability to go out there and compete with nfl guys. I don't see a reason. Why not again. He's physically developed enough to do so and he also spent a ton of time at you. And i going against spencer brown. Who's probably gonna get some playing time with the bills. And then also trevor pending. Who's going to be another. Nfl guy from northern iowa. Who's supposed to be drafted so You know if he's ready to go there probably gonna use him as like a heavy down guy in short yardage yardage situations maybe on some first downs. Where they're expecting a rushing play if they're just trying to get somebody who's more of a space eater who's going to take up some space on the edge. That they know is strong point of attack. Eller smith could provide that for them. I don't know if necessarily he'll get those third and long third and ten years back in go type roles that's probably going to be more anderson and opening bow and also osha lari instead. I think ellison might be a little bit in those situations where they just need a bigger body and one thing we do knows the giants really did not use a whole lot of four man. Front four down linemen like the four to five nickel now. That was pretty much the rest of the. Nfl's base defensive look. The giants didn't use that a whole lot. Part of that. I think was just due to the injuries. They had last year and really wear the strings of their defense. Were now. I think it's possible. We when they do use that front. We could see ellison smith. Lorenzo carter as those down. Defensive ends with Maybe bj hill end. Leonard williams as the interior defensive lineman. That could be a package. We see a fair amount next year. Just based on the body types available now the other thing too now that i think about it you could use ellison smith. This is the reason why. I believe we were all so excited. By this draft selection you could also use ellison smith in those those third down roles where you wanna go with just straight up all edge. Rushers and we. We saw that happen before. We've seen just have somebody lined lineup in the interior. Not even in a three point stance but in a standup stance and rush that way so they might go with a three man front and have ellison smith is the interior rusher or they might have him as just being additional interior guy. There's a lot of things that you can do with eller smith because of his size profile. So that's another possibility of how they could use them. Yeah absolutely his size is the thickness his length. And just how explosive he is. Yeah he had he had that really good ten yards split in that just great vertical leap of his. That is something you don't see all that often that is just a rare combination and there are like you said a bunch of ways. The giants can get him on the field and put that skill set to us. So coming up. We're going to talk about these backups. And then sharing who we believe won't make this roster in a very crowded edge rusher group before we get to though we are going to take a very short commercial break support for this episode comes.
On This Day: Buster Posey Arrives Full Force at New York Giants
"In Giants history, We're going to go back to a really cool moment in Giants history. 2010 1 Buster Posey was arriving full force just called up from the minors and the Giants going to turn that season around in July with a huge help. The rookie Buster Posey. So it's 77 10 were in Milwaukee.

"So it looks like he's he's potentially going to be one of the probably the closer competitors for that final spot if not maybe he ends up on the practice squad again in the giants have to pray that nobody snatches him up which it might be better for them to try and get him on the roster rather than let somebody else snatch up a guy that they've been developing since last year. Absolutely not want then also you would also hope that his former teammate would be able to spell his last name correctly in the google diamonds. I have misspelled his name for so long any christie. He probably doesn't know what spell my name. it's okay yeah. I totally agree. It's going to be a risk if he goes into training camp. He shows that he is capable of being somewhat of an nfl starter and the giants trying to sneak him onto the practice squad again. Because there are a lot of opportunistic general managers out there waiting for teams to do that with young players like this especially in positions that are hard to develop the offense of lines. The giants have a tough decision. There if murphy plays well in preseason and especially if he plays while preseason weather's tape that other teams can access. And i think that does bring up one other point to make in that. Is the giants backup offensive lineman. You're one of those spots. Might not be on the roster right. now there's going to be thirty. One other teams cutting a lot of offensive lineman out there and there are teams that have no team has great depth on the offensive line but they are teams out there that have better depth than the giants and there are guys who might find themselves on the street. Thanks to a numbers game and hopefully the giants themselves are keeping a close eye on that waiver. Wire because if they can get an upgrade over jonathan harrison or zach fulton managed to keep murphy and you know have nate's older he still sitting there off to the side. I haven't forgotten about him. The depth on the offensive line. I think is something that is really important having guys like murphy who can do a lot that lets you get away with. Maybe only having seven offensive lineman active on game day. And you know nobody wants to see an injury on the offensive line. Because like i said not too. Many teams have really great depth where they can lose two guys on an offensive line. Usually if that happens you're suck. It's kind of amazing. The chiefs got to the super bowl with the injuries. They had on their offensive line. But i think is just something to keep track of is the giants should be keeping an eye on that waiver wire to boost their depth. Any which way they can. Because you know how many of these starters do we actually want to not see on the field and the you know the last little piece here with murphy. I just wanna throw out there. If you guys are calling the middle of the season. They actually did promote him to the active roster. And i remember. I was talking with ed. And he was telling me that some other teams had been sniffing around the practice squad to maybe potentially bring him on. So that's a pretty clear indication that they'll do what they can to keep a guy like murph around because they know that he might have needed some more time to develop than these other players but he has that potential to be a really really strong backup for maybe a few years and then a spot starter if you really need them to be so guys if we were to pitch who we think might be the practice squad guys. Let's say let's go to three if we really want to be generous here. But a bit unlikely. Who do you guys see as practice squad. Players is it gonna be like kenny wiggins and then a brett hegi some of those guys i think hagi will be. I mean i've heard good things about hegi from just people who follow florida football now. He wasn't that great guard in two thousand nineteen but when he switched to centre twenty twenty really really mentally processed position from a high of standpoint. Which is something that you really need. I mean that's why. I'm mike so like just flabbergasted. Nick was able to transition from tackle to center. One season was truncated all season. Kinda do it really solid job that the giants 'cause that's not an easy thing to do for mental standpoint. But he was able to do it. And i've heard good things about hegi from that standpoint. So i'm thinking he would. I know burton with somebody who played tackle at ucla. Then he played guard at baylor so he has the ability to do both. But i think he might be a little bit too small from the arm standpoint not athletic enough to play tackle in the nfl. But it's something to consider. And then jackson barton's somebody who is absolutely gigantic. Who they brought him from the chiefs practice squad last year. So maybe he somebody at the giants really have high hopes for now. I haven't seen much film on. Jackson barton so i can't wait in from that standpoint but i just following what the giants are doing a stolen the roster he could potentially be somebody that they try to sneak on the practice squad. If you can't crack the the roster just in general because when you have that kind of length and if he can move and they may view him as somebody who can fill in if not were to go down if they just want. One of those tackles just be incredibly long arm. Similar dandruff thomas's well. I think those are both two pretty good picks. I noticed the name we haven't said is chad slade. But you know he's kind of been around a bit and he's his chances in like like nick said he kinda get on the field get us at it dominated and then we wouldn't see him again so i kind of wonder if maybe the clock has run out for him unless he has himself one. Hell that camp. That's it for our discussion here on the giants offensive line. We're going to get onto defense next. I believe we'll start talking about the defensive line will probably be that first group and training.

"So i wonder if they if the giants would go here. Go to that spot philosophically where they bring out a lot of twelve personnel just to throw the ball more efficiently. Just get those favorable passing matchups. Go to eleven personnel to run the ball and if they want to run the ball. Maybe we'll see that more of that eleven personnel but in the modern. Nfl man like we like in theory that makes sense but there are so many hybrid defenders. And if you look at the giants defense. I mean the giants have a bunch of them. Like jabrill peppers xavier mckinney. Where they don't even if you come out in eleven twelve personnel. They won't even switch their personnel. To switch the alignment a little bit. And that's that's something that offenses have to deal with. Because you know defense. They're getting a little bit smaller and they're not end up to I guess you could say keep up with the speed of teams like the chiefs in just the speed of the nfl. In general so in theory. I mean that makes sense but some some teams. Don't even switch out the personnel as much as we would think. But i wanted to ask you. Do you have like the nfl numbers in front of you of of the personnel. 'cause i want to see the giants were one of the least eleven personnel teams even though it was like fifty five percent but i don't i don't know how i do have them right in front of me. Mama says the numbers. I almost have to you. Know doing this podcast by cast with the damn suto for so long. I'd have him just to keep track with. Keep up with him so eleven personnel giants. Were one two three four five six seven eight nine. Ten giants were tied with the green bay packers for ten the tenth least amount of time in a liver smell a fifty five percent five hundred twenty eight offensive snaps doom and gloom. But now we think of it from the sense of eleven personnel last year like we said earlier in this episode was golden state. It's not going to be golden tate now so hopefully that upgrade at the receiver position significantly helped us eleven personnel packages in theory. Yeah i feel like an all the stuff that we've laid out today. I think is pretty clear indication but promising one that they're not going to be as heavy tight end. I think we're gonna see a lot more eleven personnel which we spent all this time talking about that number that you just talked about kris. That's going to be way different this year. There i would be shocked with all of these guys that they have if your top five goes kenny golladay sterling. Shepard darius slayton various. Tony and john ross. I would be disappointed if they're not trying to get all five of those guys on the field as much as possible especially considering ingram's not necessarily the receiving threat that we want him to be kyle. Rudolph is obviously going to be equality veteran tight end. It's not going to to have him in evin ingram on the field at the same time but all these receivers man they they need to make an effort this season with all of the money and the capital that they spent to bring in these guys. They probably should be going a lot. More eleven personnel. That agree completely. And i also do agree with nick. I think we're gonna see a much more. Vertical offense out of the giants. Just you know. We've brought it up a couple of times before. I really do think there moves taken as a whole suggests that they want to throw the ball downfield now whether or not the offensive line can hold up and give them the give those routes in those concepts and everything time to yet. That's another matter. But i think their personnel moves especially with mike glennon with his big arm and then all of this investment into the wide receivers and fast wide receivers in guys like that who can go up and get the ball i. I think they're really does signal. The that jason garrett wants to throw the ball downfield all right well. I think that's a great note to wrap up today's show on folks.

"Up on the giants practice squad but the one interesting player from this group that jumps out to me is david sills because there was a lot of hype around this guy ed in previous years in last year ended up hurting his foot in twenty twenty so he was out for the entire season put on the injured reserve. And all that kind of stuff. But he's a pretty damn good Garner guys and he could push cj board for a possible roster spot in training camp if he can prove that he can be more efficient better governor than him so. That's one name that i would say from this fringe group that has a chance to crack that final roster it would obviously be in the place of someone like a cj board. But that's that's an interesting little camp battle that i'm gonna be looking at when training camp rolled around. Yeah i'm with you. I think austin. Mac is probably the most likely to stick around just because you know he was on the giant squad for eleven games last year. He's a guy he knows the offense he knows the coaches the coaches know him and he was only targeted. Eleven times made seven catches but five of those catches were first downs. So that is a pretty darn good rate and if you can show your reliable in your important situations like that kind of thing coaches remember and if they've got that good feeling about you that could be a point in your favor yet. David sills. He's got that special teams ability. He also has size on his side. The giants have kenny golladay. But other than david sills. They don't really have big receiver on their roster but still does have kind of the same similar size as galata. I think he's a six four. Probably to fifteen may be two twentyish. So he's got that ability to just have that instant separation thanks to his size and catch radius and that could also if he's able stay healthy again that could show up in training camp and the preseason and maybe that does let him push. cj board off the end of the roster if he can offer similar special teams ability while also offering the ability to effectively backup that x wide receiver position spot ryan. There's always that potential that you end up with a guy maybe it sills. Maybe it's austin mac that bust their ass during the offseason enough that they make a huge progression and maybe one of these four players beats out. Cj board john rosser dante pettis for that final receiver spot. But right now there is a lot of competition justice stick around with this giants organization. Let alone just to be on the practice squad. There is going to be competition. So these guys i. I'm actually going to be paying attention to them. I know that they're not really a part of this. A huge impact of this giants roster. But that is a good competition group to see if they can fight to end up on the team. Coming up we are going to discuss how we think that this giants passing attack is going to look differently with all the new names coming up on the other side..

"Here is obviously headed by saquon barkley. Who's coming off of an acl injury that took him out of a majority of last season. Getting hurt against the chicago bears very very early. On second game of the season. here he is returning. We've seen a lot of guys lately. This is no longer a death sentence that it used to be twenty thirty years ago. Where you torn. Acl on your career was basically done instead. We see plenty of guys who come off. These injuries. have a very highly productive careers and also big bounceback years immediately following like a good example. Adrian peterson was one of those guys who did that. At the running back position so saquon at the top of the list we. We don't need a debate. Who are be one is just like. We didn't need need to debate who. Qb one is but saquon is in a position now where he's going to have a lot of pressure on his shoulders coming off that injury. Yeah i think he definitely well exactly share. Fresher is the right word for it. But i think there are definitely our expectations for saquon barkley going into this season. The giants are going to have to make decision on that fifth year contract They're really going to have to make a decision on a long term extension for him. And i think that is where the real pressure is going to come from if he gets off to a bit of a slow start. I don't think anybody will start. Start killing him for right. I mean he tore his acl and head to wait. Most of a month for the swollen. go down for to get repaired. Doctors are getting pretty good at stitching knees back together but it's still a significant injury. Yes definitely still a significant injury. But i i don't know how exactly to look at this because from everything we hear right. Now he's saying we're taking it a day at a time. I was literally watching. Gm fb a few days ago. And they had james bradberry on a peter schrager s a question and james bradbury about saquon barkley and james bradberry was like all. He's gonna come out and he's going to be a dog and then like right away. He realized that he said something he shouldn't have and he kind of walked it back and he was like let me and he literally said like. Excuse me. let me rephrase. We're taking a day a time but you know and like he like totally like joe judge the entire thing and realize he probably shouldn't be saying that and i think we all hope is gonna come back and i do ultimately think he's going to be there week one but it's definitely more of a slow process and i'm not sure what the snack counts are really going to end up. Being four saquon barkley and devante booker in week one other. We're going to see a little bit more booker than we may want to. But that's mainly just because i think they're going to ingratiate back into the lineup back into that former role and that since they have you know running back depth here made in see a third running back out there and honestly the you say that making originally my my thoughts here on saquon were he probably is going to get a light load going into the season for like maybe the first four or even longer than that games but that combine james bradberry almost makes me think that everybody within the building was told to say that so that they don't expect teams facing the giants early on don't expect saquon to get a lot of touches maybe he's further along than he actually is and we're not actually going to get the full glimpse into that until you know. Maybe the soon as the first game kicks off. I think if the denver broncos come into the come into week one any assuming anything other than getting a full dose of a one hundred percent saquon barkley. They are making a significant mistake. And i think they are at least their defense. Probably better coach than that. So the second player down on the depth chart. And we're gonna get to talking about saquon for the second half of the show. We're going to really dive into him. Because of the importance he has to this giants offense but after him seemingly is devante booker. Do you guys think that this is confirmed that we should just assume that he's going to be the second running back just based on how much they paid him in. Free agency the guys that are sitting behind him because it just a foregone conclusion at this point that devante booker is probably gonna take a good chunk of the carries as that second running back. I mean if if you're a betting man. That's where i would go but i definitely wouldn't say it's a foregone conclusion but two years five and a half million dollars on the first day of free agency that says something they definitely wanted to make it a priority to get a running back. Who can run between the tackles can run outside is a solid zone runner. A candu gap fast you can catch passes can also pass block. Booger can do all those things. I would say adequately to solid. They wanted to ensure that they had 'cause last year they had dion lewis yet. Dion lewis capacity can catch passes. But he's not good. Really running in between the tackles so he struggled with that. I feel like giant really wanted to ensure that they got somebody that if something were to happen the saquon barkley. This guy can step in. Nba three down back for them. Although we saw last year with jason garrett he'd like to use two backs a lot of the times. We saw a lot of alfred morris along with wayne gaughman so we may see some of that in the season just as early on the season. Like we said what's guam barkley coming back from that injury. But i think if i bet man everything points to booker and i think he can execute that role pretty solidly into. I wanted to get your take on this chris. Do you think booker's going to be an upgrade over wing. On what you're asking the internet's number one wing. Goldman fan right here. I know i know i. I'm not going to say he's an upgrade. I think we'll probably talk about this. In the second half. I think booker might fit what they want to do. A little bit better than winged could because you know for the just for the price wing. Goeman basically went to a blue san francisco on justa bov veteran minimum. And he was he was. I don't want to call him a revelation for the offense but the offense performed significantly better when he was on the field. And you know he was in the red zone. He was good in short area soon and he could do pretty much everything. He wasn't really great running outside. He didn't really have that. The zone scheme chops but at least as a competent capable Number two running back..

"But what he can do is reach every part of the field and i think that combined with going out and getting kenny golladay getting john. Ross getting canarias tony. Who's got all that speed. I think a really does signal that this team wants to start looking down the field yet. They i think want to go back to a more but coughlin ask offense where they attack deep and try to run the ball. You know play smashmouth running game and then forced the defense to start cheating defensive backs up and then attack deep I don't think that is really the type of football. That cole mccoy comply so they went out and got a backup. Who can do that. I would love to see that as well. Because jason garrett it seemed like entire philosophy last year was we're gonna call replays to get ten yards. We need to see more shots down. The field and colt mccoy wasn't really capable of doing that. We know daniel jones ended up getting hurt and cincinnati and when he came back and he played he just was not the same guy. Caught mccoy ended up a film back in against cleveland. And you know they were able to move the ball. And i think a lot of it was because of freddie kitchens but cole mccoy he's he's more of a processor re somebody who's going to be able to put your offense into optimal positions against the defense that he sees but he's not somebody who's going to be able to push outside the numbers from the far hash or push them all more than mike thirty five yards down the field in a in a more accurate manner. Mike glennon overly accurate. But like you said then he can really bomb the ball That could benefit darius slayton. If he ever ends up getting into the game a benefit of an ingram by he makes them boneheaded mistakes man mike and he does he makes me like. How did you not see that safety right there. Like what are you know. So there's definitely a give and take with that. But i i would rather be a little bit more aggressive than a little bit more and i really think jason garrett would like to be as well his whole career as an offensive coordinator or a head coach. He has really based his offenses around that old air. Coryell attacking vertical philosophy and we saw that the first couple weeks last year but the giants just didn't really have the pieces in place and i think the lack of a real x receiver was one of the biggest missing pieces y they had to transition to a lot more of that pat shurmur of west coast style offense where they were just doing. Half field reads One maybe three steps rhop's keeping the ball maybe five to seven yards downfield and playing that same style of offense. I think they really would want to. And i think it's a big want jason garrett to concentrate on attacking vertically lake when he had terrell owens and then dez bryant Amari cooper and all those guys now he got that extra for again and i think the one takeaway here from the mike glennon signing is a complete swing in the opposite direction of what you can have with a backup quarterback you guys talked about. How colt mccoy less of an arm. He's a little bit more analytical. He's going to be able to to be a lot more smarter in his decision making and we saw that when he was able to step in but not necessarily the elite thrower of the football that is going to be able to stretch the field. And now here. We are with my glennon. Who necessarily isn't going to make these pinpoint tight throws and make really really smart decisions with the football like you said nick instead. We're just getting a big arm. Who hopefully he doesn't have to step in. Hopefully this is just a spot player. If something happens were daniel. Jones has to come out for the end of a series. But i think we're all hoping that daniel jones ends up starting every single game this year. It doesn't really miss any time. Because i would honestly prefer not to have to put mike glennon out there on the field at any point but the third guy we have is clayton thorson. Who is it pretty safe and easy to say that. I don't think clayton thorson is going to make this roster a guy that came out of northwestern a few years ago. I just don't really see anything about him. That really makes a lot of sense for keeping around a third quarterback especially because of all the defensive backs or the receivers on this roster. I really don't see a situation. Where clayton thorson is it. More than just a camp arm speaking of players. We really don't want to see on the field when it matters yarmuth with clayton thorson. I would expect that. He is a camp arm and if the giants are actually looking for competition at the backup quarterback spot. That guy isn't on their roster right now in. That could be position. We look at around the time team. Start cutting players where you know maybe some guy on the back end of fritzy stacked roster gets let go just in the numbers game and we could see the giants put in a waiver wire claim or maybe sign him and then go for your try to stash guy in the practice squad something like that. Yes that's exactly. What clayton doors. He's gonna be practice squad type guy and they'll probably look upgrade on him if somebody they like is is released from another football team. But i'm guessing. They like his character his work ethic and what he provides from that standpoint mental standpoint because on the field you know back when he was at northwestern it wasn't an eye popping type of situation when he went down to the senior bowl. It wasn't like that either. He ended up getting draft in the fifth round by the philadelphia eagles. But i don't envision him the field as the new york giants starting quarterback if something were to happen to mike glennon daniel jones. I think we'll bring somebody else in in not really a terrible option to have as a third quarterback put just sit with this. This roster doesn't really make a whole lot of sense for them to carry a third quarterback on this team so the expectation probably not going to be making it not really much of a surprise. They're just considering how much she's bounced around and and how. He is not really stuck anywhere throughout his career in the nfl. Over the past few seasons coming up. We're gonna talk about headlines that we're going to be watching specifically those surrounding starting quarterback daniel jones before we get to that though folks. We're just going to take a short commercial break support for this episode comes from forward. Most people go to the doctor for the one offs like rashes and colds. And your annual flu shot but doctors can do more. That's why you need forward..

"Com for more fantastic giants coverage. So today is going to be quarterbacks. And this is probably going to be the least eventful show in terms of talking cots and who's going to be starting where just for the simple reason that we already know who the starting quarterback is but but as we're going to do with every single one of these shows we're going to go down the depth chart and we're going to talk about these guys and then the second half of the shows and be very very heavy on daniel jones guys. We already off off the rip that daniel jones is the starting quarterback. There's not really much of a situation here where they brought in somebody to maybe compete with him his third year. They've thought that type of quarterback situation. But i think the expectation right now for daniel jones guys is him needing to step up in this third year because all of this money has been spent in pooled on the offensive side of the ball. They brought in a ton of weapons. They spent draft picks a first round draft pick on a wide receiver. The expectation right now seems like for daniel jones that he needs to get them over the hump. He needs to stop making the errors that he did in his first. Two years in the nfl. Because this team right now is primed and ready to be competitive would say that that might be. The biggest question regarding the giants is will daniel jones. Take that step forward. And they really need him too. They made him six overall pick. They have like you said invested a ton of resources draft capital free agent. Money south Salary cap dollars into surrounding him with talent. And they've got a ton of coaches around him. They've got jason garrett they elevated forty kitchens to a a new position that seems to be much higher in the coaching. Staff pecking order. They are really trying to set the stage for him to take the next step. Or maybe ideally take a leap into proving that he is their franchise quarterback chris. You're right in that next step. For freddie kitchens is just to kind of alleviate the the fact that he had a position group last year now. I think he's gonna be coming in as more of a schemer to help assist jason garrett with that because he was a tight ends coach last year. Now derek dooley who can handle those responsibilities and hopefully kitchens can kinda like we saw. When colt mccoy started. In that cleveland game. We saw some a little different types of wrinkles when jason did not coach that game because he had kobe salsa in different types of wrinkles. Hopefully we can see a little bit more that within jason garrett offense when it comes to freddie kitchens and hopefully that will help daniel jones us all these weapons and kind of get the most out of the x receiver that jason garrett loves the most out of the white tight end that jason hurt laws in kyle rudolph if kyle rudolph is healthy and then the x factor with all of this would end up being to me. Could area's tony. Because i'm not one hundred percent. Certain how they're going to utilize his skill set. Which is to me. I mean you could do so many different things with him. I seen on twitter. People throw all yeah. He's raw out there and get it. He he didn't. He doesn't have a lot of snaps as a wide receiver but he has nuance man as a route runner. And i know we've talked about that and this isn't a wide receiver. Show will save that. But i do believe that can help daniel jones locks daniel jones is going to need a male jones a turn the football over more than anybody in the national football league in the last two seasons combined so that needs to get cleaned up and let's face the fact right here. There's some pressure on daniel jones. Because you have to make a decision next year in next. May if you're gonna pick up his fifth year option and that really is going to be a huge decision for the giants. I mean we know the salary cap is going to be going up. They have to make a decision about saquon. Barkley i think we can. We can talk about that when we get to the running backs show but right now daniel jones has played to a level where i think it really is a decision they have to make. It's not a no brainer. That they pick up that fifth year option right now and we know and we have seen. Just what kind of an advantage. Having a starting quarterback on a rookie contract is for teams. And i think that really has compressed the development timeline for a lot of teams like no we saw arizona. Move on from. Josh rosen in a heartbeat. Like they didn't waste any time. Going from josh rosen. To cuyler murray because not only. Do you need a quarterback who you can have have starting for you on that rookie contract. You need a quarterback who can not only you can win with but be the reason why you wins. And i think that's an important distinction to make. And honestly i think right now for this this upcoming third season for daniel jones and we're going to spend some time in the second half talking about the impacts of all the editions that they made. You mentioned some of the coaching adjustments. That might help him out. And as much of this is a situation where daniel jones should take a step forward and improve in some direction in two thousand and twenty one based on everything that they put around him. The other the other angle here. Is that the pressure is even higher for daniel jones. Now that they've done all these things because if you can't succeed after making all those moves then at what point are you going to be successful in the nfl. That and we're gonna take some time. I think i'm saved towards the end before we can actually really expand upon that point because there's potential for him to maybe be on the hot seat depending on how things turn out in twenty twenty one but moving our way down the depth chart a little bit more. Mike glennon is the expected. Backup for this giants roster. I like last season where we were debating who the backup was. If if maybe cole mccoy had some competition for right now it just seems like it's going to be mike. Glennon somebody that they brought in as a free agent cole. Mccoy does not return. What are your guys. Thoughts on. Mike glennon christie mentioned before the show that they may be brought him in so they can stretch the field a little bit more. In the event that daniel jones can't play. Yeah i think the biggest difference between cole mccoy mike. Glennon is the fact that mike glennon has a massive arm that has his defining characteristic as a quarterback. He has the range of a jobs machine. And all of the mobility of jugs machine. He he is not going to be playing outside the pocket. He's not going to be breaking out on bootlegs or scrambling and scampering or doing all of the various west coast.

"So today as i said folks we're gonna talk about two guys on offense three guys on defense that we think are in a really good spot to potentially have a big year in twenty twenty one now. Not all five of these guys are going to explode and have all pro seasons but the projection here is some players that we think have that capability of stepping up having productive seasons. Especially maybe talking defensively where guys might not really have an elite year. But they're just going to step up because there's a lot of different players at rotate in and out of that lineup. But of course it's one of the offense. I and i think that when we talk breakout players it's not easy or we're almost inclined to point to skill position players but in this circumstance. I have to talk heavily offensive line because we've pretty much determined who these skill players are and what they're going to do the one name that i'm going to be so focused on his andrew thomas for this upcoming season because all we saw some flashes of what he was capable of towards the end of last year. He was starting to progress in improving. Get better as the year went on and finished really really strong enough to a point where i think it is pretty safe to say that enter. Thomas has the looks of being a really really good starting left tackle. Yeah you said it we. Whenever somebody talks about potential breakout candidates you'll always gravitate towards the skill position players. Because they're the guys who make the highlight reel plays they get on. Tv they get the the spots on espn nfl network. They're the guy scoring touchdowns or racking up twenty yard receptions or big runs but the giants best candidates might just be those too often of linemen and with andrew. Thomas part of it is just. He had a particular. The first part of his rookie season was rough. And there's no two ways about it. He struggled with speed rushers. Especially in that first. Half of the year He strove very hard with protecting that inside shoulder over setting to the outside He wasn't really run blocking as well as i think. Pretty much anyone expected and really the giants offensive line as a whole was really kind of a disappointment last year. But then like you said the second part of the season after that by week. It seemed like he started to figure some things out. He started to get more comfortable with his technique. The giants had a change at offensive line. Coach may be a different style of teaching helped and we did start to see some flashes. Some some of the reasons why. The giants took andrew thomas as the first offensive tackle in that really great oftens of line draft class last year so i think part of the flashes. We saw that really hit at the ceiling. He has but also where he is coming from. He he set the bar low for himself at the beginning of last year. I think both of those really is set him up to be a really good breakout candidate. Yeah and what i honestly point to. I think the most is what you talked about. After that by week we started to see andrew. Thomas be more and more comfortable and a lot that comes into that is something that we talked about a ton before the season and during the season when he was struggling in any of the rookies were having problems. Is that the messed up. In abbreviated preseason slash off season really hindered early impacts from a lot of rookies throughout the league. It also led to a lot of injuries. You argue saquon. Injury was a direct result of not having enough contact from preseason games having not enough contact from practices. all of that stuff led to issues similar to what we saw with andrew thomas and it's not an easy transition to be thrown in at left tackle in your first season. Nate solar ops out. And you are expected to cover and protect the blind side of daniel jones. Who is the franchise quarterback being in that situation doing it right away even with a full. Preseason is a daunting task and there's not a lot of guys that are even capable of just plugging in at left tackle right away. We saw a lot of guys this year in the same class like tristan works and like g drake wills that we're playing right tackle to start the season because that was where it was easier to slot them and now the obviously they had that right tackle background in college but they were put in a lot better situations because of that. They weren't asked to play left. Tackle against the best pass rushers every single game and we saw struggling from thomas early on when facing some of these really really lee elite rushers but as the season continued he started to look more comfortable started to look a lot better and i think that just from that progression after the bye week when he's able to settle down and figuring himself out is the best indication of y he can be successful and continue to improve especially just simply because chrissy. He has a normal preseason. This year. I think now that he has a full normal. Preseason is why he's going to do a lot better and twenty twenty one and he has also really seen the the speed of the game in the. Sec is about as close as you're going to get to nfl football but it's still college pretty much. Every guy on an nfl team was the best player on his college team. The this would be like facing the top one percent of power five programs. We can week out. There isn't a single conference at the collegiate level. That can really prepare you for that and where you can get that experience so i think really. All of that is working in thomas favor at the very least he. We should expect him to take a step forward now. A breakout candidate. That i think really depends on how you how you define a breakout especially for an offensive lineman you know. Do we think he's going to be a pro bowler all pro player. Yeah i i don't know and honestly that's so much of that. His name recognition. He might have to wait a couple years before he can unseat. Some of the more established tackles That's all the reason why i think breakout cannons tend to gravitate towards the skill positions. Just because they've got concrete stats. You can point to and say yes. This guy had a twelve hundred yard eleven touchdown season that he obviously broke out. But if we see the giants pass rush or pass block win rate jump way up and we see thomas Maybe get into that ten top fifteen of you know pass block winds and see the giants running average. Start to go up to the left side. I think that would constitute you to a pretty solid breakout. Yeah the that for me is if we actually just see progress on the field and consistency. But chris i agree with your take there that him making a pro bowl or making one of those all pro lists more so. The pro bowl is based on name recognition. But the one thing that giants players have always benefited from when they're having a good season. It's just the fact that there are so many giants fans not only across the country but just the sheer size of the new york. Market is sometimes enough to benefit a guy like andrew thomas who might be having improved year but not necessarily an elite year could be enough for him to make it onto a pro bowl roster but regardless i think for me for it to be considered a progression and a big season for him is just is just consistency is for him just to have more games where he is limited in the amount of pressures that he gives up and i know we can points of those analytics that you talked about the pass rush win rate but overall if we we just see better wraps we see strong performances against good pass rushers not just the weaker end of the schedule that for me is.

Final 2021 NFL Draft Quarterback Rankings: Trevor Lawrence and Then What?
"So guys let's start off with the quarterbacks as this is probably the least eventful group especially because we just let mark handle this position group. Because that is his forte his speciality. We don't even really need to go through the ordering or anything specific with this one as we're going to do it the other position groups but the thing that's worth noting is it. Mark was highly reluctant to really go past mack jones and then after thinking it over he threw in kellyn mind. Davis mills kyle. Trask jamie newman. And that was pretty much it so i think we can all agree here that the quarterback class in in this year's nfl draft isn't exactly very good on the back end. There's a lot of really good talent at the top but as we start to push towards the second and third round like we don't even have a third rounder in this group. There's not really a lot of good options now. It doesn't really tier that way. Joe obviously you have the tran said quote unquote time trevor. Lawrence. and then. There's a lot of debate on who that actual second quarterback would be adjusted sales from ohio. State zack wilson from byu. Mac from alabama. It seems like the jets. Presume that zack wilson from byu. And i mean. There's a lot of rumors that three the san francisco forty niners are really all in on mac jones but we'll find that out next thursday. It's gonna be interesting. I mean outside of the top five quarterbacks in legit all five of them could go for the giants would be ideal for the new york giants. That would be absolutely but outside of those five. It's it's kind of a crap shoot between callum on. I'll trask davis mills. Yeah i actually wasn't surprised to of see the look of pain almost on mark's face when he had to we almost twisted his arm into throwing out his like second and fourth round quarterbacks. This is a very top heavy quarterback draft class and part of that could just be the position. Where if you've got a quarterback who is able to be accommodated starter. He's probably going to be a first rounder and probably a high first
Dallas Cowboys Reach Multi-Year Deal With Star Quarterback Dak Prescott
"Salary cabin number for two thousand and twenty one is going to be twenty two point two million dollars all right now. Head dak prescott. In franchise tag again this will happen in a procedural sense but had to cow tried to go at this with dak prescott on the franchise tag for the two thousand and twenty one season. We've talked about this a number of times. That value would have been thirty. Seven point seven million dollars so the fact that the cow is now have him onto the books. We're talking about the value that is on the books in the books. However you want to look at the books whether they're e books or physical books whatever the case may be that value is now twenty two point two million dollars now. I know that we have all said some things about the dallas cowboys but they are not complete dummies. They surely budgeted for the franchise tag value. Because let's be honest. They came about twenty four hours. We think you know. Close to having the actually placed the franchise tag and maybe carried out with that prescott. So the cowboys have room for the franchise tag at the very least so you look at that quake matt that adam schefter was kind enough to do for you. That is fifteen point. Five million dollars that the dallas cowboys suddenly have because they've got this long term deal with that prescott. This is something that we've been saying for two years now. If you do this you can. You can kick this down the road. You can prorate it you can extended you can whatever term you want to put on it. You can spread the impact of the deal out of the signing bonus of the overall guaranteed money out over the lives of the contract so it doesn't hit you all at once. That's the one killer about the franchise tag is that it is fully and completely guaranteed in franchise tag is a one year deal so the value of it last year and dak prescott was on the tag for thirty one point. Four million dollars. The two thousand twenty dallas cowboys had to absorb that value all at once and they would have had to have done it again. Here in two thousand and twenty one but because they have adjusted that they now have fifteen and a half million dollars that they were seemingly budgeting for dak prescott that now they can apply to different areas. Maybe it is a safety. Maybe it's a defensive end. Maybe it's a defensive tackle. Maybe it's you know an offensive tackle. But they want swing tackled death whatever the case may be. We know that the cowboys obviously hold the tenth overall. Pick in the draft. They could go a number of different directions there. They wanna cornerback kayla farther patrick's retain do wanna take one of the tackles and rashawn slater as all this is. This is setting up and this is an important thing. I want you to hear me here and watch me here. You cannot waste this money. If dallas cowboys the whole point and getting this done with thac prescott besides obviously establishing having the best player on your team for the foreseeable future the point in doing this is to alleviate the salary cap space now. And i don't like the term when now if you watch us often you know that but you look state of the nfc east. It is by sudha. I mean the philadelphia. Eagles are a disaster. The new york giants doping daniel jones is legitimate. The washington football team has a great team but is void of the most important position of the game and a quarterback. Maybe they'd get somebody this cycle as we all expect quarterbacks to change teams at a higher rate than usual but the case in point is at the dallas cowboys are now. We're going to see this all day on tuesday by the way and we'll talk about it of course but they're going to be overwhelming favorites to win the nfc streit and you think about the conference that they plan is really a contender in the nfc. And i mean that with all due respect to the reigning champion tampa bay buccaneers. But you've got the bucks you've got the green bay packers and then who scares you. May maybe the rams you believe in matthew stafford but the point is thinking about the afc. I mean the. Afc has the bills and the ravens and the chiefs and the titans and the steelers and the browns. I mean you could go. A number of different ways. Did the colts have carson. Wentz ends up getting his act together and so the cowboys play in the weakest division in the weaker conference and so now they have this opportunity to really kind of take their future in the here and now they have fifteen and a half million dollars that they weren't necessarily planning on having use it and if they don't use it it is all for not so i mean we are all imploring the dallas cowboys to ultimately use this salary cap space. This is a very very very luxurious gift. That they now have been afforded that they didn't previously have so shattered of course to the dallas cowboys. Let's see here let's move. I'm i wanna talk of course about the bonus the dak prescott because well. It's stupid large. I mean it's amazing. Dak prescott has now the largest signing bonus in the nfl. You look at joe flacco. Once upon a time. Got forty million. Dollars matt ryan forty six and a half. Remember if you're on the fence about this value. We've talked about this before as well. Matt ryan became the first quarterback in nfl history to average over. He had thirty but to average at least thirty million dollars per year with his new contract that he signed with the atlanta falcons in two thousand and eighteen. That was three years ago. Dak prescott signed a four six year. Deal whatever you wanna call it. That was three years ago. They matt ryan signed that he was the first quarterback to hit the thirty million dollars a year. Mark prescott just hit forty but the reality and we've been saying this forever is that there are so many deals coming around the bend. Josh allens gotta get paid. Lamar jackson's gotta get paid. Baker mayfield's got to get paid extra calories. He's going to get paid the year after that. It's going to be time for joe burrow to finally get paid and when all of those players get paid this forty million dollars a year. Mark the dak prescott got this one hundred twenty six million dollar. Total guaranteed is sixty six million dollar signing bonus all these things that are currently the top of the nfl. The most in nfl history. That's the verbiage in determining that you're hearing associated with this and it's all literally true but it's all going to get pushed down because all of these players on this list. Joe flacco matt ryan matthew stafford at fifty million signing bonus. Aaron rodgers fifty. Seven and a half russell wilson not going to be a dallas cowboy now by the way sixty five million dollars. Dak prescott topped that all of these quarterbacks in all likelihood we'll top that that's the reality of the nfl things are always moving in one direction. It is up
Marty Schottenheimer, NFL coach with 200 wins, dies at 77
"So james some sad news in the nfl coaching world. If you're of a certain vintage you'll remember the name marty schottenheimer. He was a coach starting with the new york giants back in seventy five when he was their linebackers coach and kept coaching right up until two thousand six with the san diego chargers. He was a head coach in kansas city. Washington san diego. But i remember most with cleveland browns head coach in the mid eighties for them when they got. Oh so close to a super bowl. Berth in the afc title game. They're about to beat denver. They're about to go in for the winning touchdown in the final minute of the game and earnest byner get stripped just as he's about to step into the end zone offload jeremiah casteel. Dist reached in grabbed the ball off byner denver recovers and they hold on for thirty eight to thirty three win. And that was. It's called the fumble. If you say that in cleveland people know the fumble ohio and The brown had no shortage in sports of disappointments. So that would be one of them. When you say the fumble people know exactly what you're talking about and really gives until the cavaliers finally when an nba title really lent itself to the lovable loser. Tag that cleveland. Sports fans have had for many years but marty schottenheimer Certainly had lots and lots of success. I think he was like fourth all time as far as coaching winds. Go so sad news to hear his passing today at the age of seventy
