Fresh update on "nfl." discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"Me down to put me in my place coach. Well, no, by the way, I mean, I know Chris, but I didn't mean to insinuate. I've never heard of him. I've been on the show in the past, but today. Today he was talking about relegation and kick some of the wicked members out of the FCC and give somebody else a chance. He went out to Vanderbilt today. Listen, man, we're the SEC. He don't like it. Go to the Big Ten network worker, go to Notre-Dame, which he beloved so much. But here's the deal. Nobody wants to go do those things. Because they know where the action is. You know what, coach, you're a space shooter. You're telling us, thanks for taking my call and I enjoy your show. Andre, thank you very much. You take care of yourself. Bennett is up next in Florida, a hell of a hey, Paul, how are you? Very well. Yes, I was just listening to what you had to say about the Florida Georgia game being moved into honestly. I agree with you. I'm not a Florida fan. I'm not a Georgia fan, so it's possible that there's just a part of the rivalry I don't understand. But I think the reason that there is a sentiment that you and I share about it not being played in Jacksonville is just because the location is not historic. Can I just be bold? I mean, that place is a dump, okay? Oh, it is a dump. I mean, there's nothing attractive about playing in the Jaguars, the worst team in NFL history stadium, there's nothing attractive about that area down there. And I've been to this game, I think 8 straight years, it's not as if I don't have any familiarity. I mean, you could ask me about some games, and I would say, I don't know. I mean, I've only seen it, but there's just nothing, and I'm not saying Jacksonville is I'm not saying Jacksonville is a dump. I'm just saying that the game site is a dump. I agree with you, Paul. Every time Tennessee goes to the gator bowl and I go up there, I just think, oh my God, can't they just clean this up a bit? Every time I'm in Jacksonville, all I can smell and I think it's the Maxwell House or the folger, whatever that coffee plan is in downtown. That's the only thing I can smell when I get there. And it takes me a month to get it out of my system. No, I agree with you. But I think that regardless of how nice the stadium is, I just think this is not a historic venue. I think it'd be the same thing. If Texas, Oklahoma, where to move to Jerry world, I think you'd certainly see a big sort of move to get that to be an on campus game, but that's just my thought about it. Yeah, I think it is Maxwell House. I think my mother used to drink that coffee when I was a kid. Thank you for the call. Appreciate it. Alex is up next in Missouri. What do you got, Alex? Hey, how are you doing, Paul? Very well. Thank you. So I saw your article earlier that you flash up on the screen of Brady cook in the starting job at Missouri at QB. I want to get your thoughts about that. Well, here's what it tells me that there is no debate. And I don't know that much about what has been going on there because I haven't been, but I know drink and he is a very smart, offensive mind. Minded coach. So you tell me, it sounds positive for Missouri. Yeah, he did well in the bowl game against army. Although it resulted in law without Beatty, but he I feel like he's going to be a little bit better of basal ac is now at Indiana. A little bit better version. I always liked him. But again, here's the deal. Coach Frank had better be right. Let me just cut to the chase because everything rides on that. And he needs a big win. He needs a big year.
Chris Christie Talks Deshaun Watson
"Now I want to turn over to a different sports topic, deshaun Watson. I'm asking you this because you were a prosecutor. And you might have been in front of judge Sue Robinson. She was in Delaware. I don't know if you know Sue Robinson or not. Okay. She hands down a decision 6 game suspension. I'm not taking an opinion on this until everything is done. But first of all, she talked about nonviolent sexual assault. You ever heard of such a thing? No. Okay, so Roger Goodell triggers the appeal process, which puts him in the absolute no win situation of either upsetting black athletes who believe that white owners get off or upsetting women for not taking seriously allegations of four cases of nonviolent sexual assault, but there was no prosecutorial process for deshaun Watson. I'm really conflicted about this whole thing. What do you think about it? What I think about it is that Roger Goodell has used, as you said, is put himself by appealing this. Now in an impossible position. Because quite frankly, I think the suspension and fine and penalties you just gave the Miami Dolphins are laughable. When you read that, in fact, the owner of the dolphins did say in front of a number of people that would be better off losing games than we would be winning games that people testify these said that to the coach. Now they're saying, well, he didn't really mean it. I mean, and he suspended some mid October. Now, are you going to affect the integrity of the game in a significant way? And if he's going to give now to Sean Watson, a much starter suspension, which you have to believe that that's what's now going to happen. Then if I were the black athlete, I would say that there are two different standards. One for the people who play the game and work for the people who profit from the game. And I think it's a real concern. I think that I didn't quite understand her, as I said to you, her characterization of nonviolent sexual assault. But in the end, too, there's got to be some sense of equity. And that's why I think the NFL should not have appealed. They're going to put this person in a position to make these judgments. Sometimes you're going to agree sometimes you're going to disagree, but by appealing roger Gonzalez now put his own judgment regarding Steve Ross into the crosshairs as well.
Fresh update on "nfl." discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"Somehow find a way with Ben Roethlisberger just dragging them along last year, not being able to throw the ball up more than ten yards down the football field. Get to the playoffs. Now, they can thank Brandon staley and the Chargers for a couple of mistakes late in the Raiders and finding a way to win that. If they tie, don't forget steelers are out. Instead, they go to the playoffs. They get routed and run over by the chiefs immediately and Ben's last game. But now they're in a bit of an unknown. Where's the quarterback position go? Is it Mitch trubisky? Is it mason Rudolph who they've seen before there? Or is it Kenny Pickett? Their first pick in this year's NFL Draft, right? After seeing where the other quarterbacks went after seeing how picket has progressed so far in camp and is sitting in the third position right now in the initial depth chart, you may think a little bit that they may have reached for Pickett. They probably could have got them in round two. There was no quarterback that went until the third round, right? So that's an interesting take on all this. I think Mitch trubisky gets the nod. He's on a limited contract. It's a show me or move on type of thing. I like it. I like it in Matt Canada's offense. The defense is going to be the difference, right? They are really good. They were good a year ago. They had the defensive player of the year. I feel like they've improved some things. Now, what do they do on offense? Our three, we were going to hour three, we're going to get into a little bit of some of my predictions from a couple drafts ago when I hosted, right? And one of them revolves around najee Harris. Whether or not that was the right pick for him. He was pretty darn good last year. It was. But we'll get into that further. All right. We'll get into that further. Don't get me wrong. I expect the Steelers to be competitive, but I do think that this team, if it's true Biscay can not play at a very high level, this team could be on the verge, like they were a year ago of missing the playoffs. And maybe not continuing that streak for Mike Tomlin. I always think he has a great answer. I think they'll be ready to go. The Steelers of course are my team. I love them as a kid growing up. I want them to see the successful. Excited to see what the quarterback position looks like. All right. When we come back, Buffalo Bills beat right or Tyler Dunn, joining us here on the rich eisen show.

"And a lot of us have used this word precedents over the past couple of days since this story has been a part of I think we got to move on from that. There is no precedence to this. To this case. And in many ways, the presidents of the past wasn't good enough. So we can't just sit here and say, well, it wasn't done this way for X player, XO in the past. Let's just do let's sweep it under the rug and pretend it didn't happen again. You know, and I think that this is the moment where Roger Goodell and the NFL are saying, you know what? We weren't good enough in the past this stuff. And we got to fix it and we got to rectify it and this is the moment where it seems that they're heading in that direction. You either take it seriously or you don't go and they can show how serious they take it. Yeah, obviously, I mean, they have to take it seriously. It's a serious thing. So what they're doing right now is the right thing to do. You can't sweep it under the rug. You can't just say, hey, you're a good football player. Yeah, 6 games are back out there. It's not the case. You either promote it or you allow it or you rectify it. That's what this situation is. Because if the NFL doesn't do anything, we're allowing it, we're promoting it. And again, situations that had similar aspects to this one probably weren't done well enough in the past. For both players and owners and this is the moment where it changes. The reality is the NFL is the most popular sport in our country. It is printing money hand over fence. One of the routes that comes along with that is that they can be agents of change. Absolutely. These are moments in which the NFL can be an agent of change final thought here in the last 30 or so seconds on the situation. No surprise the NFL decided to appeal. Yeah, I think it's the right move by Roger Goodell, and again, it's the same thing I had Monday. I think of the women who said an alleged that these things happen. This is going to be just another long part of the process for them. Yeah, a reminder, the NFL has decided to appeal the 6 game suspension of Desean Watson next steps include Roger Goodell, choosing a designee to a serve as the appeal officer NFL live is back tomorrow.

"Breaking news here into NFL live, the NFL has decided to appeal the 6 game suspension of brown's quarterback deshaun Watson there he is, not long ago walking off the practice field as the team continues, its training camp, and now we head right out to beryl, Ohio, site of brown's training camp where we have NFL nation browser Porter, Jake charter there. Jake, what's been the immediate reaction to the news that the league would be appealing to 6 game suspension? Yeah, see, it was a surreal scene out here. The news that the NFL was appealing came while the browns were still on the practice building, including deshaun Watson, a team official had to come out here and inform him of what was happening. Players as they were coming off the field had no idea. I spoke to one notable Brown player, he did not know was wondering today what was going to happen and I think like a lot of people around here wonder what is going to happen next. You know, Jake, as the story has continued to evolve, we have seen sort of images from Brown training camp. What is the reaction? What does support level around Cleveland for deshaun Watson these days? It's mixed field, it depends on who you ask and where you are. I can tell you today, Brown fans were shouting messages of support that deshaun Watson as he was coming off the field after the news had broke earlier this week. He was absolutely mobbed by a couple hundred people trying to get his autograph as he was coming off the field, but you know, we've spoken to the Cleveland rape crisis center. Dave, we're really disappointed with Robinson's ruling that it was only 6 games. So just, you know, talking to people around Cleveland that I know where this topic comes up, people I don't know. You know, they are upset with what has happened that the browns made this move, but that's a segment of the brown stand base. Another segment once Deshawn Watson on the field for the season because he's an incredible quarterback talent. Now we got to wait and see what happens. All right, Jay, good stuff as always. We appreciate you making time for us here is, obviously, a busy day in Cleveland, more to come from Jake trotter will be following along with all this coverage.

"And now we'll see if the NFL PA then takes the NFL to court to challenge his decision, which I think would be expected, which means that we're looking at a long drawn out protracted battle with the two sides, the NFL and the NFL PA, sparring again. It's going to be messy. It's going to be ugly. It's going to be really something that goes on all see the long potentially, and that's where this is at right now field. Perhaps an interesting battle ahead. I mean, I know that when we were discussing the 6 game suspension, Sue L Robinson is largely following precedent and the system that is in place, but we were discussing this in the first block of the show. How this is much more than just a precedent and system story. It's a human story. And one thing that I want to ask your perspective on is what or how has the lack of remorse from deshaun Watson in his side and frankly, in some ways, the lack of remorse, I think the brown's ownership failed to share when they released their statement on Monday afternoon, perhaps played into this story. Maybe the league isn't making their judgments based off of those facts, but I do think this is a much bigger story than just the league into Sean Watson. It is about the football following public. Yeah, well, you know, judge Robinson did say Watson's lack of remorse was an aggravating factor. She called this, by the way, while she cited precedent, more egregious than anything they had considered before. So when the browns came out with a statement from the haddam saying that deshaun Watson had expressed remorse, I think a lot of people, myself included, asked, where and to whom. And you asked about the public and the public backlash. And I think that's where this kind of gets a little bit complicated. We know that the NFL presented four cases, ten B 5, the 5th woman, was not interviewed. As the public, we have more knowledge than that, because of all of the reporting on this story, from The New York Times, which came out, you remember what the story is saying that actually Watson had had 66 appointments for more than he himself claimed, by the way. And we know also that more than two dozen women sued him. So we know the immense volume of allegations that player, which isn't to minimize the fact that four allegations is a lot. And I think that is influencing how many people feel hearing 6 games knowing the incredible volume of allegations. I mean, the NFL PA has a fiduciary responsibility to serve in its players best interest. We were talking about the possibility of them countersuing if this suspension is expanded for deshaun Watson, which would be the presumption given that Roger Goodell and the league has decided to appeal it. Is there a message being sent if the NFL PA tries to push this further when there has been so much public support suggesting that 6 games was far too little?
"nfl." Discussed on NFL Live
"Time now for us to bring in NFL lives own meeting times. Meaning what was your reaction when you saw the news at the NFL had appealed the 6 game ban? You know, I wasn't terribly surprised field. I think we can start by saying, I don't think Roger Goodell wanted to be in this position. He created this new process as part of this use CBA because he had gotten dinged so many times for being judge jury and executioner. However, this was collectively bargained, the NFL PA did agree to this new process where ultimately he did retain that right. Now why am I not surprised? Well, frankly, if you read judge Sue Robinson's report and her findings on the deshaun Watson case, she largely agreed with the NFL's conclusions in the report in the section labeled findings. She says that the NFL did meet the civil standard first establishing that sexual assault took place that she believed there was set unwanted touching that Watson went into these sessions with a sexual tent. She said all of this, but ultimately decided on 6 games for two reasons. One, press it. Now, as we talked about yesterday, that precedent was largely under the old system, which many people criticized when it came to cases involving sexual assault, and domestic violence. And then the other reason was her interpretation of what the term nonviolence means basically she felt that this was an example of a case where violence did not occur. I disagree with that. Again, as we discussed yesterday, I don't believe that is a correct interpretation of sexual violence. And again, Roger Goodell is being put in a difficult position where he has to face, I think, two largely competing impulses. One is, do you want to start off this new system by going back to that old that old process where you are the judge, right? Some might say, well, you're undermining her decision, even though it was agreed upon that he could play this role. And I think reckoning with his own history when it comes to these cases in the public black backlash that's taken place. We think back to 2014 when ray rice was suspended for just two games after a domestic violence incident that was later expanded. That's probably one of the, I would say most damaging moments of Roger Goodell's career, now he's in a position again dealing with a very public case involving in this case sexual assault

"Breaking news into NFL live, just minutes ago, Adam chef reported the NFL has filed its appeal in the Desean Watson suspension of 6 games that according to a leaked source. What more can you tell us about this league's decision? Well, this is a huge and significant step for the National Football League field. And Roger Goodell now will determine whether he or one of his designees will hear this appeal. The NFL PA is likely to take this decision to court and sue the NFL over it and so what looked like a story that could be coming to a close when justice Sue L Robinson issued her 6 game suspension and written opinion on Monday now may just be beginning. This could be the start of a very long, legal, drawn out process, but deshaun Watson is not going to play at the start of the season. His 6 game suspension stands, the NFL is looking to add onto it and add onto it by a lot. I would imagine because the league wanted an indefinite suspension with Desean Watson having to apply for reinstatement. The NFL had until 9 a.m. on Thursday to make a decision about whether or not to appeal the justices decision, considering that it would undermine her in her very first decision and that is exactly what the league decided. It decided to take a stand against the judge's decision to stand up for what it believes is right. And the judge wrote that the NFL proved that deshaun Watson was guilty of sexual assault that he posed a threat to the women around him and that he compromised the integrity of the National Football League in 6 games is not enough in the NFL eyes. The NFL PA will have plenty to say about this as well. It has two days to respond to the NFL's appeal of this decision. And again, this now is just beginning. You take a look at the appeal process. There on the board, as we just mentioned, the NFL PA having two days to respond three outside experts make recommendations to commissioner Goodell or his designate, Gödel or his designate makes the final decision on the length of the suspension and I want to reiterate in the NFL's eyes, 6 games was not enough.
NFL appealing Deshaun Watson's 6-game suspension, league says
"The NFL is challenging at orbiters decision to suspend Cleveland quarterback Desean Watson 6 games for violating the league's personal conduct policy Two dozen women had accused Watson of sexual misconduct during massage treatments while he played for Houston in her first case since the NFL and the players union jointly named her disciplinary officer former federal judge Sue Robinson issued the 6th game ban The league was pushing for an indefinite suspension of at least a year and is now appealing which means commissioner Roger Goodell or someone he picks can impose a harsher penalty The union could then challenge the appeal in federal court

That tweet already has 1400 likes in 25, 30 minutes, and then he follows it up by saying, to himself, we should be playing in major cities, places where they have an NFL football team, not Bermuda and Puerto Rico. Us little guys have feelings too. All right? He has caught a ton of shit for these tweets, but he's right. But he is right. Listen to that. Listen to that, that 6 week, that's what 5 weeks Vegas to Japan to South Carolina to Bermuda to Mexico. Vegas to Japan? Yeah, so to South Carolina. So they're going to be the little guys are going to want to play Vegas because it's really in the season because it's a wraparound. So they want to get off to a decent start. If they get into Japan, they're 100% going because they're pretty sure it doesn't have a cut. There's no way they're going to have an event in Japan with no cuts. So 1000% they're going. And then I guess I guess presumably. You take that off, I would guess. Where are they playing? I didn't even see where they're playing. But they're playing somewhere. Like the golf course. It doesn't matter. The only set is ridiculous, though.

This is where the play. Basically what he's saying for the people in the comments yelling at clouds is like the big guys, they're probably getting their own way paid to all that shit. The Japanese event, the big guys are probably getting older stuff paid for. I would guess all of it. Maybe they can pay appearance feed money over there. I don't really know.

That didn't involve white people whatsoever. Your credit score has nothing to do with the color of your skin. Irresponsible teaching irresponsibility and not focusing on generational wealth is your fault. If you get money, you go out and buy a $400,000 chain, and you don't have any investments, you don't do anything. That's your fault. What if they got to do with the white man? Why are NFL players going bankrupt? Most of them are going 80% of NFL players go bankrupt. Why is that? Is that the white man? The white man giving you the money. That's because we don't teach our young boys how to handle money. We don't talk to them about finances. If we teach them to take their education serious, they get bullied in school by other black people and say that they act in white. My father told me he was bullied and I was doing the bullying. When I was in school, 'cause that's what you do. A guy wearing his pants around his waist, oh man, you're trying to be white. Now, nobody can tell me that's not happening. Oh, you trying to be white. You trying to be like the white man. We are doing that to ourselves. Why are some black people more successful than others? We all black is mindset is mindset.
It's Sickening How Fragile Black People Are Over Racism
"Sickening to me is saddening to me that black people have been reduced to being the faberge eggs of society. You can't do nothing. You can own a football team. And you hire a coach based on marriage. Can he win you a championship or not? And that coach happened to not be black. They cried racism racism racism. They paying these black quarterbacks. $200 million contracts, but because they don't have a head coach that's black, they racist. Can somebody can somebody explain this to me? The salary cap goes to 80% black players. They're paying hundreds of millions of dollars to black players on the team. And because they don't hire a black coach who makes less money than the black players, then the whole league is racist. If you ask me, white people are disproportionately underrepresented in the NFL. They ain't out here whining and crying. Show me a defensive back that's white that make more money than black defensive backs.

And this league has gone that way to where there's different guys that have different skill sets and play in different packages and different situations. But the majority of these guys, if you're going to run it 25 times, they're getting 18 or 19 of those carries. And javonte was truly a 50 50 guy.

Aaron Rodgers Named NFL's Top QB in ESPN Poll
"So ESPN doing their annual poll of over 50 executives players, coaches, alike, they release their top ten players at every single position in the National Football League. They've been doing this for years. And yesterday, while we were on the air, they put out their top ten quarterbacks. When I say they, again, it's an ESPN production, but it's not really folks from ESPN. It's people within the business. The peers of these players themselves, the players, the coaches, the executives. They come out with the top ten quarterbacks fellas. It's Stokely and Zack filling in from Mike Evans this morning. We're hanging out with our guys stink. Number one in the National Football League, according to these guys, Aaron Rodgers. Aaron Rodgers still the number one quarterback in the National Football League fellas. Well, a desi woman back to back MVPs. Aaron Rodgers has his efficiency is touched on interception ratio completion percentage. His ability to just absolutely attack a defense. So I'm doing I'm doing a Green Bay game. This is two years ago. And I'm talking to the defensive coordinator of the team that they're facing. And he's like, listen, if Aaron Rodgers gets it to second down in 5 minus, like second down 5, 6, 9, four, whatever. He goes, I would rather just give him an automatic first. I wish I had something to say, you can have the first down. Let's start over. It's like a take your base signal. And baseball. Yeah, exactly. Yeah, exactly. He goes, I would just like to start over because if he gets you in a second down in 5, there is nothing you can do. He's just going to bleed you. Until they get a first down and then they'll bleed you some more. He goes, I'd rather just give them the first down and say, let's try to, let's try to see if we can get them in second down and along because that's the only chance you have. He is legitimately is that
Avalanche Re-Sign Valeri Nichushkin to 8-Year, $49 Million Contract
"But we start with the biggest story. Really, of the Denver sports landscape, the Colorado avalanche signed pending unrestricted free agent valerian to an 8 year extension. It's the big boy deal, fellas, the club announced it yesterday, the contract. By the way, and I'll just kind of get this off my chest. It's so funny the way that these sports are covered like in the NBA or in the NFL, this would be a massive get for a inside reporter, Adam Schefter, Asian or janowski, sham sharan, you know, fill in the blank, right? The teams announce it in hockey more oftentimes than it actually gets broken by reporter. I know that's a niche thought, but instead of like Ian rappaport breaking the story, like the abs just like tweet it and just interesting niche thought. But valerian and 8 year extension, the contract is worth $49 million with an annual average value of 6.1 million bucks to choose can just have the best regular season of his career, mark 25 goals, 52 points and 62 games. The abs are telling you this guy's a part of our core. Yeah, and here was a guy when he came into the league as it first rounder was considered a bus. He was a
In 9th Season, CJ Cron Receives 1st All-Star Nod
"CJ Crone is going to the All-Star Game as an alternate. Is it sad? Jake, Jess. I mean, he actually earned it. I disagree with you. It's not like he's got 8 home runs. It's like, okay, we gotta give the rockies an all star. Here you go. It's gonna be CJ Crone. CJ chrome has had a great first half of the season. He deserves to go to the All-Star Game. I agree. I agree. I think the idea is like, hey, because you're guaranteed a representative, Greg. Correct. And without that, you wouldn't have one, which is probably true.
Is Justin Simmons the Best Safety in the NFL?
"Number one, story right now at Denver fan dot com, you're looking at Justin Simmons voted league's best safety while Peterson wrote about that if you want to check that out on the website and fan dot com. It is Justin Simmons the best safety in the NFL or was he just voted the best safety in the NFL? You know, it's a great question. He's always, I think stoke really summed it up well when he said any given Sunday he can be the best safety in the NFL, but there are some guys, you know, there are some really good safeties in the NFL bayard comes to mind with the Tennessee Titans. If it's Patrick, make it Fitzpatrick is a really good place. There's a Berlin James Derwin James is an absolute that guy is a difference making. He's a beast. But again, he plays differently. He's down in the box, 90% of the time, or 80% of the time. So it's just the kind of it just depends. He's a different cat,

"Move the ball in the second half. Cincinnati Bengals, I'm sorry. One source of constant hope for the chiefs is, of course, the fact that they have Patrick Mahomes as their quarterback and Jeff Darlington, I know you caught up with Patrick Mahomes at the F one race in Miami just a couple of weekends ago, I'm sure a lot of the attention was being paid to the race itself, not Paolo Ben Caro, by the way. It was Patrick Mahomes. He spoke with. And I just be curious. Have you got any sense in time around Patrick Mahomes about how he thinks this offense can pick up the pieces with no more tyreek hill who has been the number one whiteout for the entirety of Holmes career to this point. Yeah, field. We didn't talk a lot of football that day, but we did talk a little bit and he did mention that he feels really good about the wide receivers that they have acquired. I know that this was something talking to a lot of people with the chiefs that they really are coveting the idea of having these big bodied wide receivers. And that's not intended to be a knock on tyreek hill. They obviously loved what he did there, but they also love the idea of spreading it around to a lot of these bigger receivers and just going at it with the committee approach. I think that I sense that Patrick is very excited about it. And I think that this is clearly a team that is going to have to sort of redefine its identity a little bit, but I don't necessarily think that they're viewing that as a bad thing. So, you know, the cars were fast that day. And I think Patrick Mahomes still expects his offense to do the same. I was going to say, more importantly, Jeff, I wanted to get mahomes thoughts on drive to survive, who was favorite F one racer is. What he thought of Miami. We're.

"Hey, that's my man, man. Listen, it's right now. It's live TV. I thought Marcus is going to be going. It was crazy. Listen for Daniel Jones. This one to be about him finding ways to hold onto the football to be secure in the pocket and be able to get the ball out of his hands when he needs to and make better decisions. He has to show them he can be a guy that can not only lead a team in a locker room, believe them on the field to win. It has to be okay for punts and field goals. All right, now we have still our seat. We're going to get Jeff involved in just a moment here. To a tongue by loa, and the dolphins continue their OTAs today. There's no doubt that tua has struggled during his first two seasons compared to pre Jeff expectations, but he hasn't had a ton of help since to enjoy the dolphins. They're offensive line as the worst past fluff went past block win rate in the NFL. They also rank bottom three in yars per rush, an average separation by receivers, dolphins didn't make several moves this off season, which included the additions of tyreek hill and Tehran Armstead. So our sea sort of same premise here, lots of changes, and Jeff Johnson kicks off, excuse me. So JD, we got you back here in the flesh. Just sort of size up how things are looking right now for tua and this new look offense under Mike mcdaniel and all of these new pieces that are being integrated as well. Well, you mentioned some of those additions. And this is, by the way, the field an example of the dolphins not only going all in to support tua, but also just trying to do what they've been planning for the last several years, which was to acquire a bunch of draft picks and then eventually use them to turn this offense into something better. Mike mcdaniel ultimately can oversee these different weapons and this is actually the important time of year from mcdaniel to kind of become that mad genius that he was known to be in San Francisco. Because when training camp hits when the season hits, ultimately he's going to have to be that head coach who oversees everything. But right now, he's in the lab and he's thinking about guys like Jalen waddle and Tyree kill on the same field together. He's thinking about having protection from Armstead. He's thinking about the fact that I'm going to focus on yards after catch and put to it in the best possible spot. So there's actually a lot happening here in Miami that I think could go a very long way into developing this offense into something that they've been envisioning down here for several years now. Yeah, Jeff, I know you commented earlier this off season. There's more buzz surrounding the dolphins and there's been a long time, perhaps dating towards a tail end of the Dan Marino era. RC, let's get back to you here for a second. Do you think the two was a good fit for this Mike with Daniel offense? Listen, I do think that two was a good fit for this offense. Let's think back to what he was and who he was at Alabama. It was about getting the football out of hand quickly being a run and then play action teeth. Isn't that what they do in these Mike McDaniels Kyle Shanahan type of offenses is going to be a run head to team that gets you into get you into position where you can go in yards after the catch and the one thing to talk about lower was great as was when he had people on the outside when there was talent. He got the football. He got the football to the guys that can make plays in the best ways and I think that's what he'll do as well for the Miami Dolphins. Yeah, Jeff mentioned yards after catch. You just brought it up as well RC. You go back and look at the teams that led the NFL in yards after the catch per catch over each of the past few seasons. It's the forty-niners and the forty-niners again and the forty-niners once more. They certainly were 18. It was great. They were playing in space. So a team that has some expectations coming into this year. And all of a sudden a division that, by the way, looks very, very good. But perhaps no division looks more stacked than the AFC west, which is where we turn our attention to now after each team of the division made significant moves this off season. It's no surprise that FBI projects an extremely close race in the AFC west. And how about this? The Chargers are a slight favorite after adding JC Jackson and Khalil Mack to their defense amongst other off season editions. By the way, Russell Wilson, he's now a Bronco right behind the Chargers, and there's the chiefs. They won this division 6 straight times, and here they are as the third, I guess, place team, so to speak in terms of FBI, so there are so many offensive weapons in this division. I'll see, I'll turn to you. I think the defense is going to be what ends up deciding this division. So let's sort of start with which team, maybe you feel as best equipped to have their defense hold up this year with all of the weapons in the passing game specifically on these offenses. Listen, I'm not going to start with the Los Angeles chargers. I had a great conversation with Brandon Stanley at the LSU pro day. And he said, we know that we have to build our Justin Herbert to keep that transcendent type of talent that suits all total Hall of Fame type of talent at the quarterback position. But why can't you do that for your defense as well? And he was speaking about building a defense around Derwin James. He said, Derwin had to do way too much last year and was used in too many ways. Now that you add a JC Jack, can you add a Khalil Mack up front? You have linebackers that can go sideline to sideline. You already had Joey Bosa up front. You can do so many different things with a healthy asante Samuel. We're now doing James can just be himself. He can be that freakish athlete that can move into the dying position that can blitz off the edge that can cover the slot. Play the middle of the field. I believe that this defense is stacked on every single level. And when you have a defense like that that has freakish talent at certain positions, you can win. I believe that this defense along with what they can do offensively does put the Los Angeles charges at the top of the AFC west. Here are some good news. I believe that we have Marcus spears with us now as well. And swagger if you heard RC, feel free to take it away. Otherwise, just general thoughts on how this charger's defense has come together this off season. Swagger, can you hear me okay? All right, we are having we are efforting on swag. We're going to head back now to Kansas City. And again, 6 time as a division champ in a row, so the chiefs had one of the worst run defenses in the NFL last season, ranking last and run stop win rate and allowing the second most yards to rush. So they focus on diva to the draft, using both of their first round picks on defenders, including the selection of defensive end George karloff's late in the first. Now they did lose versatile veteran tyron Matthew and free agency, that happened after they signed Justin Reed to a three year deal. He, of course, being a former Texan. RC, we're gonna head over to you. I was gonna ask Marcus whether the chiefs did enough on defense to be able to stop some of these high powered offensive attacks. I'll ask you that same question instead. I think the chiefs attempted to, you know, I think people are gonna look at the two first round pinch me. You think Trent mcduffie and you also go to colossus and say, okay, they did enough. But Trent mcduffie is going to be a guy that's going to play very well in the back end. I'm thinking about having a pass rusher up front that's going to create pressure. That's going to create sex almost give you turnovers with that type of ball awareness. And I just don't know if Carlos is that. And then if you go to the other side and Frank Clark, who is underachieve that's being at Kansas City, it still kind of seems that there's only Chris Jones up front. Also when you go to the bank and tyron Matthew held so many things in place. But what they wanted to do in the secondary, I do believe losing him will be huge from a leadership and communication standpoint. Just to read is probably an upgrade and athleticism, but when we think about the things that you have seen when you're tyron Matthew in the positions you've been in, I believe that it is invaluable what he meant to that team. So without adding an elite pass rushers without necessarily knowing which to give them some back end, I don't believe that the Kansas City Chiefs are really in any better position than we saw them in last year when they couldn't stop the Buffalo Bills in the divisional playoff round and they allowed the Kansas City Chiefs to run out the clock late when the office couldn't.

"Agency to help him out. Yeah, Robert, much like the Los Angeles Rams, the one thing about the Cincinnati Bengals, they're not going to sneak up on anybody this year. I can tell you that with all the talent that they have, but also, you know, this is a young team, okay? This is a young team. They got a bunch of young stars. How are they going to be able to handle that success? Are they going to be able to put last year behind them and understand that this year has nothing to do with last year? You can't carry over last year's success to this year because this go around, everybody's going to be bringing their a game. So I'm curious to see how this team is going to handle kind of the notoriety that they got from that great season they had last year. Well, listen, this is a team that is loaded with talent. I think this is a team that altered teams in its division to draft a certain way to help shut down Joe burrow Jamar chase, Tyler boy T Higgins, some of the great wide receivers, and this is a team that looks like right now with the young talent in place that it's going to have staying power for a long time, we didn't think of the Cincinnati Bengals as an elite team in the National Football League. And it looks like they may have arrived at that already, but they'll take some staying power. Yeah, it's interesting. Robert wants more debt there when it comes to their pass catching, which makes sense, but hey, try stop in Ja'Marr chase. I mean, anybody, good luck. And then you've got Tyler Boyd and tie Higgins who probably don't get enough credit. We got more coming your way on NFL live. The dolphins have loaded up. They're year three quarterback two it's hunger by loa with weapons, but does he have the arm strength to put Tyree kill to use? Does he even need it? We're gonna answer those questions around maybe one of the better offenses in the NFL. We'll be right back. We're back on NFL live, a developing story relating Jerry Judy Adam. What do we know? Jerry Judy was arrested and taken into custody the staff during in arapaho county outside of Denver and a short time ago, the arapaho county sheriff announced that Jerry Judy is being held at the arapaho county jail on charges of second degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer a misdemeanor. He's on a no bond hold and he's innocent until proven guilty. So obviously there's a situation that will be monitoring. I'm sure the NFL will be looking into it the Broncos are gathering information themselves and we'll see what develops. All right, we'll keep an eye on it. Thanks to Adam, we got more to get to here on NFL live. Let's get to the dolphins. They've made their intentions clear. Give to a tongue by lower, the best possible situation to succeed and see if he holds up his end of that bargain. They traded for tyreek hill, of course, added Cedric Wilson, to run Armstead, Connor Williams on the O line, chase Edmonds, running back. They still have jaylen waddle, they're loaded, and dolphins offensive coordinator Frank Smith said this to SI dot com when asked if there were any limitations in the offense regarding tua. He said, I wouldn't say that we're limiting ourselves in anything. He's actually been doing a great job of everyday presenting different routes, different things we're trying to accomplish with receivers. So I would say that everything we've done so far has been extremely optimistic because there are certain things in our progressions and reads and his ability to move from throughout his progression. So that, of course, stemming from a viral video earlier this week to tyreek hill, but the big question surrounding two of this off season is will he be able to stretch the field with all of Miami's weapons. Last season, he actually ranked second in the league in completion percentage and fourth in off target percentage on passes 20 plus yards downfield. However, there's a caveat to that. As less than 8% of his pass attempts traveled that far downfield, which was the third lowest rate of any qualifying quarterback, when he did throw downfield Damien, he was pretty good at it. But it just is a matter of not doing it that often. I will say some of that could have to do with the fact that when you don't have the weapons that you necessarily feel you want to throw to all the time, it could affect how you play. Also your offensive line, but does to it need to throw the deep ball to have success this season. Well, I mean, you got to threaten all areas of the field, right? Because if you don't do that, then the defense can adjust accordingly. And what's the point in getting this track team that might be dolphins? At the skill position, if you're not going to threaten every inch of blade on the football field, listen, I think two is going to press through. He's going to push the ball down the field with all those weapons that we kill, you know, Jalen waddling company, but also remember this is they're going to be running a West Coast style offense and first and foremost they want to run the football and everything comes after that. So yes, he's going to push the ball down the field, but they want to run the football first and foremost. Yeah, with Mike mcdaniel, there is the head coach Robert does to have the ability to excel at throwing the deep ball. Laura yeah, tua does have the ability to throw the deep ball and people have to understand that it's very hard to drop back in the pocket and throw anything down the field when you have the 32nd rank pass block unit in front of you like he did last season. So of course, he's going to throw those short passes. But now with Mike mcdaniel coming in, adding Tehran Armstead and Connor Williams that offensive line. I feel like two is going to have a chance to breathe in the pocket and push the ball down the field to tyreek hill, Cedric Wilson, and also jaylen waddle. So when I look at you got to understand that when he came out of college, everybody fell in love with him and part of the reason was because of his ability to push the ball down the field between 2018 and 2020, he completed 54.4% of his passes 25 yards down the field. That's more than anybody in college football history in the last ten years. So tour's ability to throw the ball down the field is only connected to the protection that he gets and the guys he has the ball to throw to. Tua is a faith based guy and now God's blessed him with all the weapons he can possibly imagine on offense. All he has to do is go out and complete them, right? Tua is under more pressure, right? Two is under more pressure this season than a lawyer who knows that his client is guilty in the courtroom. Oh. Well, what team in the league has added more talent on the offensive side of the football to RG three's point than the dolphins. There's not a team in football that's added the firepower that the dolphins have. Tyreek hill. Cedric Wilson, chase Edmonds. They've just keep adding more and more offensive firepower. Nobody has added as much offensive talent as the dolphins. And so now, in his second year, tua obviously is going to be asked to do a lot more should be asked to do a lot more. New system, but there is a lot of talent surrounding him. That's not his use anymore. Yeah, it's interesting because Robert referred back to his time in college and covering him throughout that time. He was also very careful about when he threw the depot. They were so hesitant to turn the ball over. He did it well then, and he did it at a historic rate, but I do wonder if some of that's been in the back of his mind as well as he's been trying to figure out how to do it without the protection that he needed. We'll see how that team gels with all those new faces. Let's get to some other guys that may have a little bit to prove this year at the quarterback position. Time for some quick reads, we just talked about tua, but which QB has the most approved in 2022, Damien, you first. Oh yeah, I'm going with the Philadelphia Eagles Jalen hurts. You're talking about helping you young quarterback, right? You go out on the first night of drive, you trade for AJ Brown the tremendous wide receiver from the Tennessee Titans. You got devonte Smith, okay? Got Dallas Gardner, miles Sanders in the backfield. Like, if you can't get it, basically Philadelphia Eagles saying, you can't get it done with these guys. Then sorry, we got to move on with those multiple first round draft picks next year. All for me, the guy that has the most approved is Daniel Jones. No one outside of the building believes in him. The people in the building don't believe in him enough to give him a 5th year option, but he does have an opportunity to turn the narrative on its head and go out there and let that dog hunt. Because he has all the skills, the height, the size, the arm strength, he just has to show people that he can be the guy in New York and one of the toughest markets to play, and he has a great supporting.

"Now, he may very well do so because I don't think AJ Brown had a difficult route tree in Tennessee because of what you just said with what they do with Derek Harry out of the backfield. But here's what gives me pause RC. Pause for the cause. Derek here he is phenomenal. And we know the Tennessee Titans want to run the football. But they ain't went in the Super Bowl running the foot. And I want to know that they really feel like trailer birch was a where they staring in the mirror. Did they feel at the same time? Or was the money you pay antenna hill because remember Derek has already paid? All of that. All of that plays into it. I don't necessarily think that the pick for trailer was like, okay, we can go get Burke's. We can let AJ go 'cause we can give birth. Right. I think that was what you moved to secondarily. Right. You have to go get somebody. I don't think when you look at it though, I do believe they can be successful in that division. You got to look at the division in Houston and Jacksonville. We don't really know Indies going to compete. There's no question about it with Matt Ryan. But when you look at the receiver position as a whole and you said are they looking in the mirror, right then? Yes, they are. They see the same trailing is. It's the same guy. You know how coaches think. Okay, they look at it. They say, well, why would we give him $25 million? We are the ones who put him in position to be successful. We can get a guy that does the same sort of things and pay him 50 cents on the dollar. Why would we ever do that? And that is what they're thinking and you're right, RC, they got to get an explosive guy. There's no question about it. They have to go get a couple other playmakers, but it goes through Derek Henry and running game. It's not going to change. If you remember, last year, both of you knucklehead tried to tell me when they got Julio Jones that the offense was going to change. What did they do? They didn't change the offense one lick. They ran the ball because that is what they're going to do. I fought with this dude about them being a running football team. The point is what I just said. You ain't winning no Super Bowl with Derrick Henry doing what he's doing. Because it has it. No. You know what I'm saying? So for me, when you let AJ go, you just let your best offensive piece in how you win. But are you going? Are you going, okay, so let's say they keep AJ and everything is still in place. You go in with tiny here at the quarterback position. Last year. You just played that against Cincinnati. That was a fake number one C, but AJ Brown is one of three receivers in the last 25 years to be a second round pick and get a thousand yards of rookie year. So trail emerged, you got heavy, heavy shoes to fill. I think this is a little bit guys like, I blame the Kansas City Chiefs. One, because everybody wants Patrick Mahomes, and then two, you know, and I said this one to trade happen. This was going to change how the NFL operated because we got an expensive quarterback. Ryan Tannehill is, can we keep the receiver that we really want to keep, but we can't pay them as much. And the reason why they trade in the Philadelphia is Philadelphia is cheap Jalen hurts. Tennessee has expensive Ryan Tannehill. I don't hate the comparison. I don't. But to expect trailer, this is a number one seed that in the first round of the NFL Draft got worse. That's the truth. Tennessee got worse last night. Now trailer Burks, I think is gonna be a nice player if they use them the right way, but because of their quarterback is so expensive to your point. Big fell out to your point. They had no other choice. Kiko, but then I got where did that general magic come from? New England. Where did it hit coach? What philosophy New England? I'm with you. They just don't have Tom Brady. Okay, that's true, but that's their thought process. I'm with you. Dan, the other piece of this is they've still got number 35 pick in the second round. They've got 69 in the third round, a 163 in the 5th round. Do you think Tennessee tries to get one of these quarterbacks? No, I still think that if you're Tennessee, you wait to see if Baker Mayfield becomes available as that fourth or 5th round pick because he's not going to cost you that much money and it's a one year trial. I don't believe that this football team has the number one seed needs to invest a second round pick unless they are committed to removing on for months. I think the second round should be. Let me say this because I think we've gotten a little bit too fast. To think that these day I'm receivers walking out the door ain't gonna matter. Right. Nobody is gonna tell me. What's the matter or AJ Brown leaving? Over playoff games, last year. As the only guy for the Tennessee site, these dudes walk devonte, green bail be fine. How do you figure? It's so disrespectful. I just wanted to make that point, man. And that's a team that really wasn't that good anyway in a lot of ways, especially on one side of the ball. All right, that wasn't the only wide receiver dealt last night when you think about AJ Brown. The ravens sent Marquise Brown to the cardinal's key. You like him in Arizona? I love him in Arizona. I think he fits exactly what they want to do in the air, right? They lose Kristen Kirk, right? Kristen Kirk goes to Jacksonville. But he gives them the same thing. Only he, this past year is more productive than Kristen Kirk. You got AJ green on the outside. You got Deandre Hopkins. So now you got a little speedy dude to lift the coverage for those guys. Kyle and Murray him best Friends. They know each other. It will just be seamless. I'm excited to see it though. I mean, the big thing for me though is if you have the Baltimore Ravens, okay, now what do we do offensively? Yeah. What is going to be our identity? You lost the police and marquise Hollywood Brown that was starting to give you some of the things you expected from him when you drafted him. So now what are you going back to? How are we going to let Lamar Jackson progress? Is it going to be Rashad Bateman on the outside? Are we going to still use our tight ends led by Mark Andrews inside the numbers? I think this is going to be extremely exciting for me to see where the Baltimore Ravens make or take the next step in the Lamar Jackson offensive evolution. I agree. The fascinating part for me, Arizona is how are you going to pay? Hollywood Brown, Deandre Hopkins, and your quarterback. Ah, and but I will say this, okay, on the ravens end, seems like maybe they're not making their quarterback happy on the Cardinals end. He was disgruntled. Now they're.

Let's get right to the latest injuries around the league. You need be aware of before. Sunday. what do we need to know. Starting with las vegas running back. josh jacobs. Yeah that's right laura. Josh jacobs has been ruled out for sunday's matchup with the pittsburgh steelers coming off a monday night football game where he left late to toan ankle. Issue for josh. Shake not practice all this week and while the team does have kenyan drake as the next man up in the backfield. Jon gruden their head. Coach was a few in his praise for peyton barbara today. So perhaps barber in kenyan drake busy on sunday. He while bad news for green based various by fourth their best pass really defensive player in their front seven is going to be out for at least three weeks as head. Coach matt laforest. Though set in to i are to shut him down for a while. It's gotten better recently. Knows area smith or at least pre-game who i'm told. The hollywood brown returned to practice today for the baltimore. Ravens trending in the direction of being available for baltimore on sunday night. He's got an ankle. Issue played great among the night with six catches plus touchdown. Unfortunately laura's we'll find out right now. The ravens are dealing with all sorts of injuries. derek wolfe. He's already been ruled out one of their starting defensive line at new l. Left apple ronnie. Staley didn't practice at all this week. Gideo- still questionable. If he is out on sunday night could be all eight hundred villanueva putting from the right side to the left side. He struggled on monday. Night perhaps feels more natural in that left tackle spot. Meanwhile the chiefs have clean bill of health for their roster the ravens all sorts of injury concerns. Yeah i mean not just what you just showed us there. But all the injuries that happened even encamped before the season even started unfortunate for the ravens. But let's stick with this matchup as we begin our discussion on the chiefs and the ravens patrick mahomes and lamar jackson facing off sunday. Night and the two quarterbacks have been the league's best since the star twenty nineteen mahomes holding the highest total. Qbr in the nfl. While jackson ranks second over that span neck and neck and qbr both teams love to bring the blitz but only mahomes has excelled against it as jackson struggled heavily win. Kansas city is brought extra rush or something to watch. That's been a key difference in this. One sided match as mahomes has won all three meetings between the two quarterbacks while posting significantly higher qbr and throwing three times as many touchdowns both teams talked about the rivalry this week to good football teams playing each other. There's always a lot of hype and a lot of buildup to the game. And so we're the battle every year. It seems like or in the play offs. Or whatever it is. It's not about me and mahomes not palatable newest arabia to san lamar success that he's had with that team. Obviously my come down to make place. Happy much every three times pass. I'm not doing a new movie. Come sunday night. The world is watching too fast the youngest. Mvp's early on the other side now. It's time for him to take that next hump and and try to get a win man. Lamar here sammy. Watkins a little honesty. There about lamar jackson. Are you no. It ain't on this lower. He is wrong. Lamar doesn't have to win this game. This is not basketball whereas just five dudes and you're playing against the duty. Your legacy is up for grabs. Because you gotta play offense and defense you could rebound and passionate. Get to do all of those things the baltimore. Ravens have lost to the kansas city chiefs now. Does lamar jackson needs to play well. Absolutely but this is truly a compliment. Because we don't look at any other young quarterback matter of fact. We don't look at any other quarterback in the league and say you know what you gotta beat. Patrick mahomes or your whole life is a fricken failure. That only works for lamar jackson because it is so right because he has done so many great things because he is a league. Mvp because he does have a great regular season record and so now you're nitpicking nitpick nitpick to see what is actually holding him down from you putting him in the pantheon or the tier with patrick mahomes. But there's only one dude that gets to walk around and gets the say to. He's got the better of patrick mahomes and that is tom brady. That is the world's greatest living american. That's the only one everybody else josh allen or all of them losing. So what lamar has. The full is being lamar in the hard part about that. He doesn't have the supporting cast right now. So he's going to have to go absolutely crazy absolutely bunkers straight up superman for the baltimore ravens to have a chance and even that probably won't be sammy. Watkins who did step up week one and some spots needs to step up big with the other guys dealing with injuries. Let's take it to the field because meena if lamar jackson is going to win this game. He's gonna have to have his defense at least limit. Patrick mahomes at times. How do they do that. This is the tricky question. Laura because the ravens even a really strong identity. They play a lot of men coverage and they would slot and last week. It didn't work in large part because of some of the injuries. Marcus peters being lost for the season of you saw mark. Martin humphries questionable would be devastating. Frankly if that happens. And the lost. Chris west three as well in the second half when they blitz derek carr. Qbr one hundred. Okay if you got carved up blitzing by derek carr heads of mahomes is gonna take benny honner. You do not have a player against out weren't going into this. I have to really strongly consider as you've got it back on some of the things you do because you just might not have the personnel to stick to your guns and play the way the ravens have been playing giving one of those volcanoes in the head head. that's got lot on jokes markets. Go ahead listen for me for me is win win decides to blitz because there is no way that he could sit back and watch factor. Mahomes just go down the field. And i think he needs to do an early down jaw. We get so enamored with down and trying to get the ball off the field but we need to try to get patrick mahomes behind the states and look a lot of things you do. It don't matter when it comes to pets mahomes because he don't figure out a way to get around to get over it and figure out a way to make plays. But if if i was going into this game and i put myself in wink. Martindale sues. I'm a play it on third down and i'm gonna try to confuse patrick. Mahomes a few presses early in the game either. That's run blit. Where you can get a i in wales or i intend you cannot let kansas city live in third and two three and give up deep shots by by bringing a blitz on predictable downs. Hey anybody on the ravens. Just take that as a no all right. Well i'm just saying there is a curse associated with this show so for all the cheese cello throwing one more thing before we go guys. Happy birthday to patrick mahomes. Today turns twenty six. His mom waited on twitter. This incredible picture we birthday patrick. Kevin amazing day and year always knew you're going to be a baller. She says a footballer. Surprised love you hashtag west mama. Happy birthday mahomes. Do you imagine your what you bang on your address the light i mean i'm just trying to be great out here..

"That. I think a lot of us agree. The camp would be the best backup in the league. The best backup quarterback if he does get another opportunity he does want to start. But i thought it was really telling that he said he would back somewhat up anyway. And what are you watching for. When mac faces this dolphin's defense i want to he responds to a real challenge. I mean this kids obviously met every challenge that's been placed in front of him so far. The dolphins are unique. They're very good and they're good in a way that i think my kids in trouble a couple things Particular in the preseason week. Three's automatic jones struggle a teeny bit when The giant secondary disguised their intention to throw hold onto the football debt is something. Miami is very good at disguising coverage also basically cracking havoc and creating a lot of confusion with their pressure as well and they're also very good at playing man fourth. Qbr last year and they play a lot of man and if i was defense generally against jones. That's what i'd want to do. Because he's not a threat to take off and the patriots skill players while they are improved. I don't think they're going to separate the way. Some groups are in the nfl. So it's a very difficult matchup for him now. Think given how strong their offense of line is in particular how strong the patriots run game is. I wouldn't be surprised if they lean heavily on that. And do it well against miami. But as far as passing goes for mac jones. This difficult one ryan. How would you look at this from these former alabama quarterback who has the tougher matchup is it mac versus miami or is it to a versus new england. I believe it's versus new england. And i know people are gonna probably say on the back in the miami. Dolphins are better. Think about bill bill taking the pieces. They've added to this defense now and then to the expectations that we're talking about lower has to be better coming in to a second year to talk about. Lower has to push the football down the field all of these different things. We're saying that. He needs to progress in in order for him to be successful as the starting quarterback of the miami dolphins and i think when you start trying to make someone be something outside of what they want to be right now or what. They're comfortable being what they can grasp at this time. You put them in harm's way in the one team in the one coach and no one defense. You don't wanna put your quarterback in harm's way is against the new england patriots and we'll see that week one know that mean when superman dues be looking at each other point that he they look like that spider man spider man. That's what that's that's what the hell and meg jones gonna be looking at. They're going to be like do. I'll look all-too-familiar. One thing we got to remember. Is that black. Brand floor is is a new england patriots guy. They have a great understanding about what each other wants to do and get accomplished again from a defensive perspective into like y'all last year i think it was like twenty four twenty six or something like that but it was only a hundred and forty five yards against the new england patriots. And what did we talk about in the offseason. We wanna see to let it go pull up a little bit more explosive and that opportunity might present itself in this game. Look bill belichick. Put veteran quarterbacks in the spin cycle right. But i think there's there's advantages to having that brand is and that staff who has a great understanding about philosophically. What bill belichick likes to do from a defense standpoint like we we. We know a more in depth and intricate but from a surface level. Everybody out there knows. Bill take wants to take away with you do this. That's the first pro when he steps into a game from a defensive standpoint so that means waddell get saiki grin devante. Parker all of these guys on outside of going to have to make plays 'cause. I tell you this before we ended. You are not going to lie down and run the ball down bill to check defense is thrown that is not going to happen and allowed it for the majority of his career. You have to be able to push the ball downfield a little bit. yeah reminder. This game is in new england as well and as of relates to big time rookie quarterbacks in fact number one overall pick success in this league and week one since two thousand three quarterbacks selected first overall in the nfl draft or owen twelve and one and their nfl debut the good news for trevor lawrence. Though is he gets his first. Start against the texans. Espn football power index actually jacksonville as the slight favorite in this one given them a fifty two percent chance to win. Time for some quick reads on quarterbacks making their first start with their respective team related to lawrence. We were just talking about what he watching for that match up laura with the savage good news he gets to play the texans. Burn right i. I was worried about him in the preseason watching him behind that offensive line and i'm still worried about them but i'm not really worried in this game because i think it with the houston front seven won't have much trouble and he'll be able to get the ball to his skill. Players weren't very talented mark expectations for sam darnold facing his former team. And zach wilson ex-pm donor to play. Well but i wanna keep everybody keep in mind that robinson allies now in control that had defensive for the new york jets and we expect them to be good but some donal has the requisite weapons with christian. Mccaffrey being back robbie anderson. Oh now side. He has an opportunity here to show the franchise that booted him that. He's a far better player. Joe brady and met rule is gonna wanna see to. It are more quarterbacks with new teams. Matthew stafford facing andy dalton on sunday night. Well first off. I don't really care about antidotes. And i hope he does no. I doubt that he does well. With era donald space. But i can ford senior. Staffer can do right. Matthew stafford has to be like. Give us free. He has to be so excited. He's detroit. He's getting to play a team that he's used to playing in this icago. Bears and sean mcveigh has been so excited to add matthew stafford to this offense feeling like he can do all of the things that he's always wanted to do from the quarterback position. We will get to see a week one against a very good defense in the chicago bears. What's the difference between men and jerry.

"Him. Do work see. I'm looking forward to seeing justin. Herbert play against his vaunted washington football teams defense. We both went crazy about both of these. Were just the herbert in particular this season based on what he did his rookie year and watch the football team. Defense based on a lot of people's opinions supposed to carry them to the nfc championship and getting into the playoffs and being able to make noise. Herman got his work. Cut out for him. This has the work cut out for them. Can't wait to see it. Rookie zack wilson against the carolina. Defense zach look fantastic. The preseason starts now he gets to go up again. Brian burns one of the rising young pass. Rushers in the league arising defense overall. That's getting better every year under defensive coordinator phil snow on zach. Wilson is up to the challenge and if he looks good if he did preseason watch out. Let's get to the browns chiefs guys. They have been blown out their last two season openers. The browns by combined sixty two points. That's not exactly what. Cleveland fans wanna hear. Is their team heads to arrowhead. Especially as they get set to play. Patrick mahomes in the chiefs. Mahomes has been otherworldly in the month of september in his career ranking first among all quarterbacks qbr touchdown interception ratio and yards per attempt. Oh and by the way the chiefs ten and those games all right so you're telling me there's a chance maybe anyway time for light decisions provided by. Ibm watson and marcus. Mahomes may be great week one but last night we saw him. He was running for his life in the super bowl. It's why they ended up building that offensive line in this off season around him to protect him. What are you watching for in this one. That's the exact tobel boogie bringing in orlando brown and joe tony and obviously draft and trey smith out of tennessee. Who a lot of people are how on at the garden spot creed. Obviously you see guys here. But you got miles. Gary today cloudy in this cleveland. Browns defense coming in week one continuity it takes a while we all think these guys can play for the can't say cheese offensive land but when you're facing arguably the top pass rusher in the league and myles garrett and also today cloudy a fresher machine and these detachments who can get some push in the center of this defensive line as well. That's the matchup that i'm focused on. Because they're soon as this line. This line for the kansas city teams bill bill rapport and have continuity and all of the communication throughout the course of a game and these guys see real time action when mahomes is protected. He's almost impossible to be. And we think that's what the narrative is going to be this year with the group that they've assembled. I'm just interested to see if we won. They have some issues with communication and being on the same page. If not we talking about tampa going seventeen in old echo. Quite it could literally be the kansas city chiefs in that compensation royal excited to watch the browns defense. I mean we spent the whole off-season talking about the changes investments. They made on that side of the ball especially in the secondary signing john. Johnson safety from the rams teammate troy hill The cornerback. Marcus you and brian. You can't see me right now. You remember him. From the infamous giants practice is back. Rookie greg losing the second. He starting okay so the goes talent. Now we plan offense like the cheese. It's as much about how you deploy that talent as the as the personnel itself like when kansas city comes out in their three by one formation with travis kelsey split out wide. Who's got kelsey who's got tyreek hill. When even on those deep crossers that are so difficult to defend. Those are the decisions that joe woods. Who is the defensive. Coordinator of cleveland is going to have to make and finally now. He has the players to make those decisions. So i'm really excited to see what he does the way. This is troy hill. So i'm actually really excited. That meena bought up that. We'll call it little skirmish because this week. I've been watching swag. I've been watching dan orlovsky. Dan said that you have to go. Hey maker for haymaker with the kansas city chiefs and that's why you can't run football. I don't agree with that. I mean as you guys know. I have 'em in may show now. And i've seen many dropped by getting punched in deliver drop by getting punched indicate. And that's what you get them on the ground bingo and so now if you have kareem hunt and now you have. Trump signed a new deal. Those plays can turn into huge place. Dole's place can turn into points and what happens when you can't stop the run as meena calms mentioned on the production called willy gays. Not there right tyron. Matthew might not be playing so now you can't stop the ruin that's kevin's the fancy gets into play accident which we saw baker mayfield excel at down in the second half of the season last year. So i can't wait to see this run game with the kansas city chiefs who we've never being very physical a dominant against the cleveland. Who are they are physical. They are greedy. They are dominant in. And if you can't stop that then you won't have patrick mahomes on the field to make all of those plays it'd be protected. This game is so interesting from a style and fight matchup. I cannot wait to see what you say. I guess they believe you because you said it. I guess they believe you say it. You go blow for blow your throw the ball all over the yard. So sorta hill put the ball against the bad run defense. That's like ryan said styles make fights matchups. Well we all know. They're going to believe me know when she said it right the rest of us. I'm not so sure she's smarter. Nfl jones making his rookie debut against his former alabama. Teammate sunday.

"So this is a team that has been banged up and really today had a horrible practice. Losing two players to what is thought to be season ending torn heels. Adam to your point these injuries especially to the running back room have happened in such a short span all happening. The three injuries all happening in the span of twelve days it out tyson williams practice player from a year ago doesn't have an nfl. Kerry becomes the ravens lead back. Is we bring it. Back out to dan and marcus. Here anthony everett by the way a fourth round pick in two thousand eighteen out of alabama would be a candidate to replace marcus peters starting opposite of marlon humphrey that is a huge loss to as much as we talk about the offense on the defense side for the ravens. That's tough for me. I think it's bigger than losing gusts edwards candidate. Because this is a defense you notice big fella that they wanna pressure and they wanna play man coverage in today's nfl. You better have three guys in your secondary corner wise. That can play. That can straight up cover because you're gonna play offenses that are built upon weapons. Right look at their schedule. They open up raiders. Well waller and rugs and renfro. Brian edwards then week two kids city. I don't need to boost up their weapons denver in caja handler jerry. Indie pitman and their tailbacks tight ends. We're talking the chargers. I mean this is a team that is going to in many ways to reshape their identity. Defensively because marcus peters was a corner that you could go. We're gonna pressure on complete lockdown. Man he's going to be good. They can't do that anymore without him. All right what about on the running back side of things. What do they go out and do can they make a trade. If there's someone out there that would make sense. I mean conventionally you think murray after him not taking a pay cut from the new orleans saints. You think that's a guy that's ready to play. Maybe not the greatest fit but right now you panic mode like you you in depth. You need dip until your point with marcus. Peters about the defense is not only about losing a really good player. It's a shot right at the heart of your ski the way you do things from an offensive standpoint with the baltimore ravens is predicated on a lotta guys being in. The backfield is predicated on keeping carries off of those guys like to earth. Yeah especially a and then. You think about wit lamar. It's effective for a lot of guys because of how he plays the quarterbacks the devastating for these guys individually from an injury standpoint missing season. But more with the team you do.

"Or so until kickoff of the nfl. Season louis riddick markets here that drum rolls for the nfl. We can't wait louis. Let's talk about the cowboys offense when they're on the field. Where's your attention going to be really from guard to guard. Laura what what not they can. Capture the line scrimmage and keep the pocket from collapsing inside out on dak prescott both in the run game on those inside zones inside counters and powers and whether or not they can keep the pocket from collapsing on 'em when inevitably they getting some kind of third and medium the third and longs situation. Because look if they're at full strength that's really from a defensive perspective. What you wanna salt. I between the am begats puts it right up the middle and make the quarterback move off the spot and move lateral which is exactly from dallas. I don't want to do too much. So that's where the focus has to be for dallas making sure that those running back when they're stepping up in pass protection insert firmly in those am beak. Because i can tell you this they get them the third and long third and six thirty and seven plus j. Pp's coming inside. I want to get some of this offense a guard. Who's zack martin. Joe try and saying let me get let me get. Some moncus fears is saying. Hey wait for the cowboys. Let me get some some lou. I mean listen. I it is hard to look at this madge. I've been not thinking about that. Bugsy line but let's talk about the cowboys defense. Because i think even though we know this is a tough match-up for them against this offense. It is a chance for us to see what this scheme looks. Like against dan. Quayle or with dan. Quinn is their defensive coordinator. What do you expect out of the cowboys who listen. I got three kids. And i'm gonna have to eat this first one out because for so long we've screen stop the run right lou. But now it's about limiting run because you wanna force teams to be in loan situations. That's football one on one. So i got three things that the dallas cowboys defense needs to do to give this team and opportunity to win this football game and it can happen like the defense is the part that usually as further alone we start a season now than the offense getting all of their things going so first thing. Limit run okay. The second thing the dallas cowboys needs to do is something. Louis alluded to talking about tampa. They need to figure out how to create pressure in the center of the pocket whether it s with their with their four man rush. Whether that's donald enough. Mike parsons j. Smith using their speed to create problems and get tom brady off the spot. Look here's the reality. And i know. Nobody likes to say anything. Bad about tom brady. The reality is when tom brady has the move. He's bad he's bad quarterback. That's the real. That's what that's what the numbers the stats and when we watch. That's what it tells us. The second thing is in lou. Lou knows this plan on the back of turn football over your outmatched football team. The one thing that you have to hold onto his you need to create turnovers. Give your office a short field. While we know that he's coming back after not playing for a long time and you have to give these guys and opportunity at least at minimum in the possession where the king although they need to turn it into a touchdown. I feel like we talked about that so much. We talked about the things that the dallas cowboys are. Offensively are missing zack. Martin we talked about all of these things defense can help the cowboys win this game. Give those guys handle those three keys. That i just talked to one thing. Though lou is getting pressure on. Brady's easier said than done. He doesn't like getting pressured but it's hard to do it to him. It hadn't happened a whole lot. Yeah you're right. Laura and i'll tell you what they need to get it in a very specific way. Marcus alluded to it. They need to get it from guard. The guard in the nba gap locations. And i'll tell you this really those keys that he put up there on. That screen are perfect and behind each one of them. He should put the number eleven mica limit. Iran's mike parsons makes them tackles assault the pocket and get presser. Mike parsons you're not going backwards and forwards tonight and you're coming up. Amp captain we're gonna scheme up some stuff. Where every time. Tom brady looks up. He's going who in the hell is number leg over and over and over and over again you know telling my innermost on lists right there over and over and over his face and then lastly he's got turn the ball over meaning. Don't just get there get there and take the ball away from him. So i'm telling you i it was. It was always my thought that. Mike parsons really held. The key to this team's season is for a successor failure tonight. he's on the biggest stage. They need him to be big real big in this opening game. Lou you're talking about jersey numbers. They're a little bit with mike. Parsons wearing number eleven. And that may be more key than you realize. Because the league's owners approved a rule in april that allows running back receivers and tight ends to wear any number between one and forty-nine any number between eighty and eighty nine linebackers defensive backs can now. We're numbers between one and forty nine and tom brady. Didn't like it strongly about that. I sell the detail. Those extra guys. Extra work ryan so smart me for him thirty minutes prior. Isn't that much. But anyway i don't want to get into it. I've already talked and nausea about it. I think it's a stupid rule just to be to put it out there one more time. Oh yeah. Tom brady not mincing his words there. Dan is this really that big of a deal absolutely. And i love that lou in marcus. We're talking about. We haven't planned to segment about with mike. Parsons an internal pressure. So everybody knows protection is often the conversation of where's waldo and when you had old rules you were waldo was going to be and you can send those guys now with the different jerseys. There's going to be a lot of different wall does now. If you look protects you the these are four defensive lineman we all know that right and so now we move forward to the jersey conversation because standing over the ball number eleven. Mike parsons now. In the old days you told your offensive line. Hey protection wise. You guys got all the nineties. And maybe number fifties right. Those are your guys offense on. Wanna back block in a big blitzing linebacker. Number eleven was often a safety. or cornerback. right now levin is a linebacker. Do you want your tailback tonight blocking mike. Parsons so you got to pay attention to eleven. The next step is forty-two when he's linebacker silva's who's going to be responsible for forty two and then the next guy's number six safety but then jalen smith words number nine. Imagine being there going. Hey is that sixty nine. Is it the running back. Shares the offensive lineman soap. Where's waldo and who's going to be protection or responsible for those guys protection now. Houston's gonna go where we want our offense ivine to be prepared for mike. Parsons they're responsible. Parties is going to go all right. I'm gonna fake blitz and that defensive end is going to drop these guys actually a good job in protection and kicking butt. Here comes number six. That safety donovan stewart. Remember i told you. Jalen smith is nine. You might tell your offensive line. Don't block six. He's a safety. But you guys got to be responsible for number nine. That's gonna take communication. The texans struggled a pass off and went tyrod. Taylor wants to make that throw. Six comes essentially on blocked. So that's something to pay touch tonight. Now this is the same front right. There's those same defensive lineman mike. Parsons walked up into the football again. Here's kiana neil. That's kiana o.'neil and now there's another sixty but if number thirty two again coach what numbers are guys is it. Eleven is at six nine at thirty two. There's going to be so much more trying to figure out who's who zoo this time. What they're gonna do and this is louis. Marcus we're talking about there. Goes like a parsons. Parsons is going to go. Take that center and try to split him to turn him from being square to making him perpendicular to the line and here comes out wrapping defensive end so mike parsons this time which says instead of dropping there's an internal prussia. I is the quarterback to move. This is a real thing no longer than easy to tell your offense. Have you got ninety. S and fifty s. You're gonna have to say ninety s number eleven number nine but not number six. We got forty two but not number thirty two. This is an issue. It's could be something that the help we can use tonight as a strength and their defense led by number eleven. When you played as long as tom brady is played. Change has got to be hard to adjust to. Let's.

"What do you remember about that? I'll tell you what my history, he goes way back. He went to town university, which is about twenty five thirty miles from my hometown. I remember going to see him in college when I was a young kid and then watching him play with my brother in buffalo, when I was in college, and then suited up against them when I got to the pros and with the raiders going man. So I've known him a long time. Look, he was just he was one of those guys was like a machine tremendous. Tremendous condition. Very, very strong after the catch hard to bring down played with great speed and toughness can work inside and outside great report, Jim Kelly. I mean he was just one of those guys methodically you just knew was going to be there for an entire football game and for wide receiver. Like I said he was like tackling running back. He was what does this one of the great competitors? And these I mean he's so deserving being hall of Famer and considering where he came from, and he's one of the great success stories in the NFL without a doubt. Friendly, reminder that Sunday is Father's Day. And because of that we thought we'd take a look at some of the NFL, best father son combinations force. We will start with the Manning's dad Archie and sons Peyton and Eli have accounted for three hundred thirty seven wins and four Super Bowl titles among the three of them. John Bosa spent three years in the league all with the Miami Dolphins and now has two sons in the NFL. Joey already has twenty eight and a half sacks and three seasons with the chargers and his brother, Nick will make debut this year for the forty Niners play Matthews junior, and his son, play the third of accounts more than two thousand tackles and twenty two interceptions. And of course, you can't forget about the grandfather clay, Matthew senior who spent four years in the league. And I Don Hasselbeck..

"Happy to have you with us as things continued to heat up in the off season coach, and let's just start with this. You know, we talk about your experience as a quarterback and then you've worked closely with quarterbacks. What's the biggest challenge or adjustment? If you will as sort of being the CEO of an entire system rather than just working with one very important position group. Well, there's a lot more that goes onto your day. But that's not any surprise thing for any of us that are head coaches now. So it's been really exciting. It's been a good challenge. And I think we've got a great staff in place here in the players have really bought in. So it's been good. First couple months here. Lot more jump into before. I do. Let's just get some housekeeping out of the way and that is your quarterback. Andy Dalton he's had some injuries. Where is he coach in his progression? He's healthy. He's been out there. The last couple of phases. And he's ready to go on a great job taking in the playbook being a good leader for us. And again, he's one of the guys that's really bought in. And being a good leader forest right now, Zac, we've seen this as we just saw before we came in here guys who have played quarterback somewhat recently in college. You even spent a year in two thousand sixteen at the university of Cincinnati is their offense coordinator Kingsbury, we mentioned Matlock floor. We mentioned Andy Reid the chiefs coats. So the NFL is five years behind college football. What do you think he means by that? Yeah. They've certainly been very innovative at that level. There's a lot of things you see coming up in the NFL schematically right now that NFL teams are reaching down to the college level. And at times, we think we're inventing it up here. When in reality, they college teams have been doing it for many many years. And so I understand what he means by that point. And he's not wrong by any stretch. There's a lot of great stuff that that we do is every single year when we study those college teams that we use at this level kind of Kenny ask you this. I wonder is there a difference? We talked about the fact that you worked with Ryan tannehill and then Jared Goff. They're young quarterback. So we're at the time, you know, early stages their careers. Andy Dalton a veteran QB eight years, and he knows the ins and outs of the NFL. What's the difference with working with quarterbacks in those different stages? Well, he's seen all the situation. So when you install something new start talking about it from the ground level. He knows exactly what you what we're talking about. He can -ticipant what you're about to say. But at the same time he's eager to learn. Like a young quarterback. So he doesn't try to act like he has all the answers. Even though he likely does you know, he wants to learn he's eager to take notes. He wants to see a new way of doing it. And so that's been really refreshing to see a veteran that isn't stubborn or sitting in his ways, you know, he wants to see a new way of doing things, and we appreciate that as a coaching staff. As Zach, you know, what you're going through the pre-draft process evaluating players, and coaches, look at other other coaches tapes and systems that would have you is there any coach at the college level that you would like to see take a crack at the NFL. Why think a guy I've always enjoyed watching Chris Peterson from the days when he was back at Boise and Kellen Moi Kellen. Moore was the quarterback. And now it's time in Washington. He's always been a coach that I've enjoyed studying the offense of scheme that they employ. I've always thought he's very creative innovative does he really good job game planning and sacking defenses. And so I know I speak for myself. But I would imagine that there's a lot of coaches in the league that feel the same way about Chris Peterson got a takeover situation where Marvin Lewis was was there for sixteen season..

"Michael Thomas, he makes combat catches. He turns it into a misfit at the line. He is more physical than his defender, and that can carry you throughout seizes into career other than the Andre Hopkins to me, I've watched him make more combat catches than I've seen any other receiver make over the last two or three years or so Michael Thomas's appear number one. He's a guy that's going to earn his money. He's a guy that deserves to get the big payday and in terms of what he brings the locker room. I remember talking to players on the saints right before the NFC championship game getting specifics from the offensive line from other receivers. What what is it about Michael Thomas? We can see it on tape. But what's he like behind the scenes and one of the receiver said every single practice when we're supposed to be going through. Let's say walk through jogging the guys running and sprinting, I kinda hate him because of it. But. But at the same time, he sets the standard in New Orleans of how these guys should work. And that's why I know Sean Payton a Mickey Loomis they wanna pay this guy. Quickly be paid the highest of any receiver in the NFL Haya works, you rotate around your turn guy. He's the next guy in top five conversation. He's going to get that type of money and the most epic celebration with the cellphone come on. It was three hundred twenty one career receptions, which is by far the most of any player through their first three seasons in NFL history. So this guy the performances you've been putting on it is historic. Welcome back with breaking news on NFL live. You know, by now patriots, Robert Kraft is facing two counts of soliciting. Another to commit prostitution police said there's video craft inside. A Palm Beach county massage parlor spokesperson for said categorically deny the measure crap engage in any legal activity. So for more on the story. Let's listen in now to Palm Beach county state attorney is Dave ehrenberg just moments ago on Friday, February twenty-second Jupiter. Police department gave us case filing packets stemming from their prostitution sting after review by our intake. Prosecutors we are charging twenty five individuals with soliciting another to commit prostitution. Any of these other twenty five twenty four men, and I can assure you that our office treats, everyone the same. Whether you have a lot of money, or you are indigent we treat all defendants say the same and no one gets any special Justice in Palm Beach county. More arrested, Tom from other similar businesses within county will hard to say because the investigators are the Jupiter police, and then you have the Martin county sheriff's department, you have Vero beach this multi county effort, and so it's hard to say if there more arrests based on their investigations, but I was asked earlier today about rumors about bigger fish. And I I said that that would be news to me. And I also added that you know, it's hard for me to talk about rumors, especially false ones. Police with two counts and miss arrest is the rest affidavit probable, David. Are you charging him with two or is it consolidated.
