Will Carson Wintz Be Ready for Week 1?
"Good news from indianapolis where quarterback carson wentz and guard quentin nelson will return to practice this week on a limited basis to nelson nelson both coming off foot surgery in early august holtz head coach. Frank reich had this to say about his quarterback last week in the perfect world. We have a really good idea after that third preseason game and carson would get to work two weeks going into the first game. That's the perfect world. The nets perfect world is the only gets the work of game week. I don't know if that's going to happen would be week to week. Three is still some mystery here regarding the timeline on carson wentz. What do we make of the recovery. Time line here. It seems to be going pretty well. Kimberly what are you hearing. In terms of carson wentz in the colts yeah it was somewhat surprising just because the initial time was five to twelve weeks and you know when i asked people around the league. Oh carson may be back in practice. Look at this. they're like. Oh is that an indictment on the other guys. I don't think that's the case. But i think india's a very delegates only because we've seen frank reich Gold took in my opinion go above and beyond in solidify this carson's team then and we. I love nick foles. But this is carson's team gotta hear this nicole stock and it just seemed a little extra and when you think about how carson has been described by people in league as far he needs to feel security needs to feel wanted. He needs to know that this is his team. The colts clearly are doing that. So this tie him being back at practice so soon you want you wanna make sure that he's not rushing himself back before he needs to be because this is a team that could go really far

"Imitating the engine. Think that's the end of that team. Talk it out. But when it his rolin thinker row so this is the best version carmelo from the three point. Line where the lakers struggle last year. Best version of carmelo from the free throw line ever like in his career highest percentages. And then you gotta go back for carmelo to two thousand and thirteen two thousand fourteen season. Well carmelo look this good on the offensive end in terms of rating. All i'm saying is he's not asked to be full-size carmelo anthony or super sized small order. We're asking a little carmelo and then we're going to get a lot from carmelo. This is simple formula ad. That will the brock and a winning team or ready. You got something special going. I'm sorry i cut you up. Do we want to look at do. We want to look at defensive rating and we want to look at pays for years. Where lebron james's defensive rating has been the worst that it spent his entire career or komar. Carmelo anthony the last two years worst defensive rating of his entire year. I believe they potentially be better offensively than they were last year. But then what they were. Twenty second twenty four last year so i would hope that they would be better but are they going to be number one defense this year. No no how no way. And mellow and lebron being on the floor at the same time defensively. Oh my god faith fast break heaven from the opposition that is a race between gravy and syrup data. That is slow. Boasted their defense. Because you got me on the roads right now covered up to nick replacing karston wis again. That's a bad move for wins next. Don't speak for yourself. I rock says carson wentz foot surgery showed no further concerts but he is still expected to miss between five and twelve weeks. Number of names have been brought to take over winston. Who and his former teammate. Nick foles remember falls now placed in india winston a two thousand seventeen season and led the eagles to a super bowl win on our chose team portraying be bad for carson wentz. It'd be good for the cold. So i don't care what it would be like for today. It really doesn't matter now. If you trade for anybody to fill in the void of carson wentz nick foles would be the perfect candidates or trade for. I've played with. Nick foles when he was a backup. He was backing up. Michael bit played for nick foles when he was a starter he was starting over. Michael bacon starting over mark sanchez. Same do doesn't change nipples. Just happen to be. There wants everybody when he was star wind. Nine straight we were three and five ended up ten and six his the hall of fame for most passing touchdowns against the team against the raiders. He do like seven passing touchdown. Doing crews dumbest thing. I see my twenty eight touchdowns to intercept. Nick foles when he gets going another conversation. But i'm gonna say this. Nick foles at his best is a top five quarterback when the other when every other quarterback is at their best knit foles at his best so psa peak peak. Four thank you. I never figured out how to simplify bassett peak to peak. Nick foles top five quarterback segment for argued it. I'm talking five history. Were still the who bought that being said. Nick foles isn't trying to take anybody's job. He's trying to help. A team wins. Sure but remember nick. Foles led the eagles to their first super bowl and they still were like april. You're going to be the backup. He's like i but others go to jacksonville over eighty eight million dollars a and he falls wants to chicago. You're going to be the backup to mitch trubisky. I i'll go back up. And he back him up falls and trying to take a job. So i actually think nick foles for india is so good. I don't care how whence feels. But if i were to care how feel it would be good for once as well interesting. You took me some places. I get there after i agree with you and say i don't care is going to be carson wentz like carson wentz understand how this game goes. You have huge expectations. Could you have supreme talent. You've actually exhibited a lot of that talent when healthy the problem is we can't get into a conversation where it's about back of how good is your backup is your backup going displace you. Who is your beco- that's not for us. To have that conversation on a football team based on our strictures. Which is the salary cap. We're going to try employ two best football players at every single position right now. Mentality comes into play. You start talking about nick foles from afar religious guys religious music respect that but he still a competitor so he could come around here with that smile you gentleness but don't let that fool you'll let the smooth taste food. You trying to take your job i hope. So if you're carson wentz everybody who's playing your position is trying to take your job. They're not all capable. This is my issue with today's culture and talk about expectations. They only talk about the burden that comes with expectations. 'cause i've been in positions you've been in positions where people expect a lot of the others burton that comes from that but there's also a comfort and the comfort is the confidence the fact that not only should i win. Not only am. I supposed to wear but dammit are probably am going to win if you're carson wentz. You have to rest in that part of expectations which is this a burden but it calls what reward and embedded in whoever. They put out there in place the me until i get healthy. But i'll say this so because you're right. A of people are trying to take jobs in the nfl really. Everybody is. but there's a difference between someone trying to take your job in someone trying to keep your job. I would assume daughter when she came back before she just went off to grass goes out to her columbia yes. I would assume that when she was back home she needed to take a car every now and then she might take car keys but she won't trying to keep your car keys off. Take one of the keys to the test. I'll bring it back. He's trying to take the keys. But you weren't trying to keep the keys. Knit falls in my mind. Would just be trying to take them. But not keep them but the backup quarterbacks albeit jacob piece and i think the fifth round pick high leveled number one overall player out of high school. He's trying to keep it. Sam etlinger rookie. Six round pick out of texas here. Trying to keep it falls. He'll borrow the keys to the coal starting quarterback job in who just give them right back. He's not trying to keep the keys will take them no gladly old. Ask god to give up the keys. Because he shouldn't be driving to. Here's the thing you should because you've got a good backup case. I can't play with nobody like that. Oh because your backup. Good if you can't handle intro competition you can't deal with the opponents inter competition so carson wentz. He'll love brother and gets a job. Back coming up ben same as it was called out by dwight howard on his way out the door to la we love or hate his comments. That's next on. Speak for yourself and my daughter has her own test. Dwight howard is on his way to the lakers but he did not leave philly wyatt me. Power thanked his fans on instagram. Then appeared to take shot that out and then posting quote and ben ben denise which could be referenced to simmons free struggles in the playoff or maybe marcellus. You love hate right. Howard take me shot at incidents. You know why i always like what does he mean you'll need but then i said you know i love this because he's not punch it down he can't shoot free throws either. So it's like. I joke on you especially if i'm guilty as charged of the same thing. I loved the reason. I hate hisself if a joke needs interpretation. It's a terrible joke. Really and you and i are both needed to interpret. This joke for didn't know netflix. Special for you to white. That's it for us. We'll see you tomorrow..

"Good fit for the latest. So he's a great fit for the lakers My talk about the relationship as you don't want to mix business and pleasure i actually. I want to work with my friends. Because i know i can grab them. I know i can activate them. I know we can go to different lips than i came with. Just some stranger just some other guy. that's why i worked for two. So we freeze before to show what had happened to a lot. He's still not text me away way. I'll know which is what i say. He went my friend before the show. Kinda but you. And now i look at you. Don't bring with lock. Try distract me to all right. Carmelo is friends with lebron. Brown's gonna be able to tell carmelo. Come over me i got about a is open is read. We don't drink this why we're gonna talk about this. Oh and carmelo to say and lebron won't easer carmelo. Last year was a beast in his role ever thirteen and a half points a game. Forty one from the three-point line at eighty nine from the free throw line carmelo. Okay respect that. You got to remember that the lakers bottom three bottom third. I should say in three point. Percentage and free throw percentage so strips fit in. Well with the lakers weaknesses. You look at carmel. Also as a catch and shoot shooter. That's what the lakers need. Everyone's talking about what's russell westbrook's role going to be what bring the carbs energy second. Hopefully the lane will open up. We'll figure out how we're going to play with you and into white and a d. in that situation but you remember westbrook and houston her fishing. He was off ball. Talked about this. which you slick how. He had his high field. Goal percentage and houston. Now we know. A lot of that was play dynamics. And how james harden basically said do what i don't want to do and that was the fisher for russell westbrook but that's kinda role he's going to be in this situation with the lakers. You put carmelo anthony. Who is get buckets. Still in new york with chris brickell every single day looks like just shooting up the gym. We'll see how it plays out in terms of age in terms of him having to fool endurance for the entire season. Because the lakers are gonna go far. But i think it's a great fit. Carmelo with the lakers alpina. Were they need it most. It's a good story marcellus. It's not a good fit. Have two of the banana boat crew members coming together. Two guys who've been rival since high school the first and third picks in the same draft guys who physically have been compared to each other from the beginning of their career. All of that makes for a good story but the fit. That's something else now because if they are playing together on the floor at the same time one of them is either going to have to play center or small forward. That may not be a problem. Offensively defensively ooh. That is another issue altogether because if they're together on the floor and one of them's at center means that you're not going to have any rim protection and if you have one of them at small forward it means that you're going to be dragged into pick and rolls and it's not going to go good for you there either so i love the story but bringing them together at this point about ten years too late in doing that so this is not going to get the lakers where they wanna go. And by the way it's still the thought of lebron and carmelo and this fit is so bad you had to start delving into russell westbrook and dwight howard and how those pieces aren't gonna fit either. So i just the names in the expectations are not nearly going to meet what the actual production is. I- cosign cosign you slick rick. But it's not even so much the fit for me fellas me harp in on a point. I was telling you earlier about business about pleasure. Sell september twenty seven. Th two thousand seventeen. that's wendy wade. Get swayed by the bulls shortly thereafter. He finds the cavs he starts three games. He doesn't light that he only starts three games so they start to become tension tension arises. Now the great dude. You've met him. I met him and so he's like you know what i'll take a backup role backup roles only last so long when you gotta starting mentality about february eighth he gets traded back to the heat and we know he goes on his fair war. Well tour but on flip side. We seen it happen with mellow before. Remember he went to houston might antoni his coach with the knicks. Like a comeback. Less running back. You did great things with me in new york. Let's see what we can. Do you play ten games and houston all of a sudden he got beef with. Gm next thing you know he gets released. If i'm not mistaken and then he just sits the rest of that season. And everybody's like where's my bring. my back. Mellow has had the work relationship. Business relationship fall short on him. Lebron has had it falls short on him. Those are the reasons. I don't think it works. So what happens when mellows only getting call it fifteen minutes a game then he's going to bronze house taco tuesday eating tacos. You know what i'm saying. Lebron chilin doing his own thing with. Brian just dropped four hundred fifteen five game before and mellow he eaten. His goals brought joke. Mela looking at brian like a big dog. All while vogelsang really playing me like you should be. I'll suddenly you're you're not look like you do too much. You do it too much. I don't think it's a good putting too much pressure and strain on a friendship. There's the other part so it's not so much the minutes it's the shots portland did a great job. Even though he was coming off the bench per minute his shots were equal to the number that he was taking an oklahoma city as a starter. They did everything. Possible to feature carmelo anthony and considering outside of damian lillard and some of the injuries that they had jim colombian out for a while etc they were able to make that work and ultimately wasn't a winning formula but they made it work and certainly mellow was was happy with everything that occurred there. But now you've got lebron you've got. Anthony davis got russell westbrook and carmelo. Anthony he's not going to be whatever minutes that he plays. He's not going to be getting fifteen shots a game and i dare say it's going to be few and far between where they're actually featuring situations where he's going to. They're going to look to get him the ball and get him a shot. So i just. I have real questions just the whole demeanor of this team to dwight howard and that happy-go-lucky style playing with russell westbrook carmelo and trevor rees trevor. Rees of being a guy who who's all about gotta play the right way. You gotta do the right things. I mean it's just such a mixed bag and carmella lebron no matter what their friendship may be. I don't see that overcoming all of the other things that will be going on with this team on top of the expectations. Because you yourself marcellus you expect them to be right there at the top. They come into the gate with that expectation and again. I look at the pieces and i look at the personalities and i look at the specific games and expectations. And it's just hard for me to see a positive result now hard for me. I know we're starting from premise. A team before injury last year that was twenty one seven team that was coming off a championship team. That knows that this engine is driving forces in his prime in his. Anthony davis if he stays healthy. I also know that i've seen the best version of carmelo effort from the three point line. I also know.

"Not all of the third year is either so it reduces what he got yes he hit it at the right time and you point out exactly how. He was able to fool us in what he was able to accomplish. Once again there's only one correct answer to this question and it is dunkin mcbride robinson. Because i dare you to name any one from the state of maine who has made ninety million dollars than maybe stephen king the novelist his his prospects were so bad coming out of college that he was thinking of coming over to this side of the microphone before even attempting the nba division. Three visit. Three college player. That's where he started. Undrafted signed a two way deal with the miami heat which meant that he was going to spend half his time in the geely which he did and then alternate signed a three year. Three million dollar deal. He's going from that to a five year ninety million dollar deal. That is an emmy acho. Come of life there for eighty one players who averaged more points than dunkin mcbride robinson this year one of them being kendrick nunn his teammate. Who just signed a two year. Ten million dollar deal with the lakers two years. Ten million five years ninety million. I think i know who came out on top on that one. And he got guys like kelly oubre junior and dennis schroder who are still looking for work. My goodness nobody. Nobody did it better. Nobody struck at richer than dunkin. Roughly let me ask you this big dog because obviously i am a basketball fan since i retired from the. Nfl fell in love with basketball. Once again. I don't want to sound like a hater. I'm not a hater. God they get their money but explain to me. Because you've been coming game since i've been alive. How does a dunkin robinson get a five year ninety million dollar deal when a guy like you said whether it be a non or a plethora of other player like how does somebody strike that much if they don't appear to be that valuable. There's a couple of things but it's it's right place right time more than anything else. It's it's having a skill that is valued within the structure of a particular team. And duncan robinson obviously has demonstrated to the miami heat that he is going to be focused on continuing to get better. He's going to. He's going to play his role and at six seven being the dead eye shooter that he is. There's look again right place right time. Being shooter a three point shooter who can get his shot off with a team like the miami heat that desperately needs that spacing for guys like jimmy butler and bam bio. It's right place right time. And the fact that he was willing to take a five year deal. I think the way the miami heat look at it as we'll make this up on the back end because his skill is not going to depreciate. It's going to be good for us. And the deeper we go into this contract the more worth. We're going to get out of what it we're paying the jump from a million to fifteen million the first year that's pretty steep but as this contract goes on it only goes up in increments of a couple of million and they're feeling is we'll we'll make it on the back end crazy man. He just benefits from shooters privilege and we all know what that is that as you can shoot that baugh forty-one percent you know carmelo shot disa- tick better to him last year. Then shoot it many times. But he's certainly shot a higher percentage go donkey robson. You know. I applaud when you get your brand but let me hammer. Down the point of the chicago bulls. Cause i left out somebody here. Batman alice caruso the emitted valuable will do all the dirty things. We'll do all the things that you don't want to do. This caruso is up to that task. It looks like a complete team in the eastern conference. Now obviously brooklyn nets are in eastern conference. They stay healthy there two favorites. They're going to win the east however outside of them. And of course the champions gotta respect milwaukee it's wide open you could say atlanta you can say philadelphia you can start naming these teams but come home. Don't act like chicago can't make a league to least get into the bottom of that tier so they're not here want oncho they meet amy tier two but they are coming with all of these new additions to sell i love. I love what the chicago bulls have done. I think they've made themselves a bonafide playoff team. But goodness gracious. You gotta slow that elevator down. You are taking it to the top you know. They haven't reasonably elevator. It looks amazing to it. Got implode book. Are we really a really compare. Alad tribeca ball to kyrie irving duran james hard. Look i love with the bulls has done. And i like it especially because i think the numbers work like they got these guys in their prime with really good numbers. They're not paying outside contracts. So i like all of it. Exactly what he's doing with team usa again another plus these guys compliment him. I love all of it. I just brother we got slow. Roll just a little bit. They are now contenders. Little two months brooklyn near milwaukee atlanta did hear you come chicago. Take tier three coming up trae lance as being called tremendous training camp.

Oh it's not just about the outcome it's about your character and when i talked about dak prescott. It's not just about shoulder. Soreness it's about the character. Say for example russell. wilson was held. Shoulder soreness oh and trip russell wilson eight minutes to start in one hundred forty four games played one hundred forty four consecutive games. I think that's currently the longest streak or at least the second longest street of the court at the quarterback position. But that press got you no longer have that grace of unity because that you've been hurt before cell if you were to share a hotel room or a sweet sweet may role okay. This is my tease better. Okay you're in your dorm room you're in you. Have we made since freshman year you freshman year ourselves columbia and all of a sudden jordan's come up missing his door and said he worked for come up missing but his roommate. Good kidding contributing ourselves. Why is he not sweating. Maybe i left them in the locker room. Maybe the library. I'm no maybe. I'll listen somewhere but now let's say. Your roommate is a klepto maniac. All of a sudden clip. Though you the room may what happened to the shoes the outcome was the you lost his shoe but because of the character of the person who sharing a all of a sudden. You are questioning that outcome. That was the exact same yeah. That's where i'm at that somebody else. Random has a shoulder sprain. Somebody who had been healthy last year healthy the entirety of his career. I'm not tripping at all but because deck now has a recent history of injuries we got a question carson wentz can only reason we questioned carson wentz. You my friend question carson wentz. Because i dunno eighteen months ago he got a concussion and missed the game prior to that he had been hurt. The previous twelve months he wants college was in his character. Nelson has the same exact injury now. He's carson wentz ain't nobody trip and we're all just like oh good nelson this unfortunate carson wentz. He's back injury dak prescott. I'm wondering now. Because now his character physical came under says he might be injury. Okay i'm gonna give you two story. What story you want. It did it for that. The characters funny But points per game is how about the character of character. Eleven more points to gain. Would that prescott. You've got to take care of them. Points one player yards per game goes up one hundred seventy seven birthday cared third percent his yards per tip everything. This is just a better office. Better team with that. Prisco yes yes. Here's the story grandma. Her purse was misplaced. I don't even wanna say stolen losses just misplace people. Don't ever saying this place. They always say. Wait a minute misplaced. Grandma can find a purse now. Everybody looking around with a person per se. Everybody grandma carried a gun to so it was like you're gonna find his my we'll bust and she did before to the other so anyway so i just got out jail so air by looking at him. We look around the house but we look at like this looking for finally shows up and just magically appears and then everybody was like collectively let their breath out like oh why did we go there in the first place to your point is character but he was a good guy up the case driven for. What do you go to prison man. We ain't got no top new. Acm was going to say that. Ron has too much power with the lakers. Next speak for yourself your watch collectors. Roster had a major facelift recently so la of us and it seems like lebron is happy about all the moves. He posted an image of all his new teammates on instagram. And according to the la times he had dinner at his house with. Anthony davis and russell westbrook two weeks before to trade was announced. Let's not forget is good. Friend carmelo anthony t made now as well joined now by fox. Nba analysts switch dot children abroad. Too much power relate. Now he ain't got too much power. But the kicker is great power comes great responsibility and lebron james with all this power means you gotta responsibility to be right and my question is has lebron james. Been right as it pertains to structuring a roster. I love the bron james. John lewis my favorite basketball player in the league. Right there were youngest depends on But i'm confused loosely. Let me look let me let me look at my slick. I'm confused because he just signed a three year thirty two million dollar deal. Obviously that's because of the bron james if y'all do not remember back in december lebron james tweets. I'm telling you right now. This kid is flat out special. Lebron james has been. he's biggest advocate but slick. I'm confused because t. h. T. only played twelve minutes a game in the playoffs. Like i'm confused. Because he didn't even log a minute in game three or game four of the playoff slick. I'm confused because the only played forty eight minutes total. So lebron james the power to give t- thirty two million dollars over three years and not saying it's wrong to say. It's just a confusing decision. All keep going lebron. James had the power to bring us. Homeboy dwayne wade to cleveland in august. I believe or november of two thousand and eighteen. But slick dwayne wade he ends up starting playing the fewest minutes per game ever and before you know it. By february dwayne wade is no longer on the cleveland cavaliers. Roster great power comes great responsibility. I will and like this. You don't mix work in pleasure. Oh never supposed to do that never supposed to do. I'm currently doing it. My assistant asthma. Mahony has been one of my closest friends for the last five years. But i have been cautioned. Acho don't mix work with pleasure because the problem is if you start to work with your friends what happens when you have work. Conflict does a work conflict trump. the friend conflicts the conflict trump. The work conflict the bron james. He doesn't have too much power because he is deserving of the power but he does have too.

"But we're just were just being a little more conservative. Was we have if his in season. I think it'd be different outlook different focus but this because of where we are having extra week We just wanna make sure. This doesn't turn into something bigger so marcellus burning. So why are you concerned about that prescott. How concerned are you about that. I'm not concerned about dak prescott. Let's take the su- soft but on our equipment again. We know how it goes. it's free season context matters. Let's take you back. First of all it takes suit all got you criminal and you got your different. Have more muscles to get back in the day. Boy won't go begging yesterday. he's still smoke. So here we go to change what we're supposed to be wearing all starting is to preseason context matters correct and now let's take you to the dallas cowboys organization facilities when dak prescott got hurt last year. Take you there and mindset. Because i want you to feel right now in this moment the ptsd to everyone's filling if deck is hurt again. We all know that when something is small. If you don't address it it will snowball and then all of a sudden compensation will occur. Now you're talking about a latte strain and you're like well that doesn't sound too complex. Doesn't sound too much until it turns into this shoulder and then that turns into throwing march and the next thing you know you're snowball and downhill trying to stop. Something that has avalanche that could have been avoided is called the preseason for reason. Let's not make smart decisions. Looked up and a lotta people like to do that because when you say something smart if you say to ahead of everyone else's intelligence they are they try to make you the dummy been near future. Don't be too far ahead of the pack because they be looking at you like come back. That's how it goes anyway. We've been here before. So let's not act like this is a moment of concern. This is a moment that they bent before in extreme and they don't want it to get anywhere close to that place again so i'm not concerned about that. Preska for them. Being cautious man. I can't even be mad at anything. You say for the next five minutes because he was preaching right there. You said you say things. Too far headed a pack. They'll make you to dummy mine that out the last two weeks. I'm concerned i'm concerned. I'm concerned i'm concerned. I'm concerned when you look at people. Get when you look at people get injured. The question is not what did they injure. The question is more. So how did they get injured. Or why didn't they get. My biggest question is always the why right. When carson wentz got injured. I freaked out a little bit but then i saw wait a second quinton nelson got injured and clinton nelson has been to three all pro made three all pro teams as i three years in the league. I got the same injury longer. Questioning carson wentz toughness ability to stay healthy because one of the toughest of the toughest person in football swimming nelson same injury. So now i'm questioning the cleats and i'm questioning the football field. I'm not questioning carson wentz. You gotta wonder. Why did people get injured. So i'm asking myself. Why did he get injured. People like oh it was just a shoulder big dog and got nothing to do with his ankle. Don't even attributing gotten under ankle. But does it see if you just look through the people. It has nothing to do with his ankle. But if you open up the door you start to see. It has a little more to do with his ankle. Why did he strain his shoulder. Probably because his shoulder is not in the same condition it typically is why as a shoulder not in the same condition to typically is probably because he did not go as much this offseason. Why did he not much this offseason. Probably because of his ankle. It always goes back to that. Kevin durant why did he hear his achilles tourist achilles because he tours duh no because because he had a strained calf klay thompson. Why did he towards kill achilles. Hooping open gym to know because he was recovering from torn. Acl kinetic chain. You've talked about it at length dak prescott. It is a concern because the concern is the why if he just has a sore shoulder but he'd been healthy all of last season all through training camp. I'm not concerned at all. Got a sore shoulder. it happens more than anything. Probably just precautionary but so he has a sore shoulder because dak said after the shoulder was immediately her just trying to get back in shape but what will it cost them my second lap. I'm gonna talk about why. I am concerned that they're holding them out. Wow okay didn't expect this is okay. Wait wait a minute you from him so okay. Let's talk about where we are now. Because i love you taking us to this layer of why it occurred. You didn't factor in one other reason. Why could kurt occurred over exertion about this you actually. I don't know your rep count more likely less than normal off seasons because you're focusing in on healing the ankle etcetera. But maybe you're trying too much too fast or you just in total volume doing too much. Because i want to make sure i'm good up here because i know i'm good down here. I've been in this position before it really takes me to my point of while not concerned is because now it's about total call. It's about how we protect you in this process of getting you fully healthy because as you said in a kinetic chain things not linear days not even your ankles we break a bone. They say when it heals hill stronger than the other bone. That wasn't broken. I my so now. I some artificial mesh or whatever it may be in there. They tell me by torn. Achilles is stronger dead. My natural achilles. Wow so the point is dax. Minds is not on his ankle anymore surgically repaired but now it's on my shoulder and maybe i'm doing too much so the change of says that. Wait a minute you are doing too much you last rain. You miss four days of practice that turn into a sore shoulder now. Soreness is your body's way whispering. Hey i know what you're doing to slow down and so they slowdown. If you're listening to your body because you're trainers are listening to your body. Why is this a reason for concern. Everyone's on the same page in terms of that. My story is this. When i broke my foot in san diego week. One had the surgery came back. They said marcellus. You had a surgery your back. We understand that your compromised right now but we want you to play. You wanna play. You can't play but the procedure to protocol can't be for you to practice to saying and still play. You only have so much tread on those tires so we preserve you for when it matters most. That's what they're doing preserving him from what matters most regular in theory. It looks like that. But here's what i think. They're doing a little bit at least the mirror. They robbing peter to pay paul. But the problem. When you rob peter to pay paul. Somebody's still short only braid. Somebody's short money. Paul or peter was rob peter. Paul cool where my bread and paul look out. Look out right right okay. What they're doing is okay. We're going to preserve your shoulder but you notice better than i know this better than they know. This is the only way to get in football. Playing shape play. Football is by playing. You got to play football. The only way to get football players is about playing football. So now what cowboys going gonna do is. We're going to preserve that shoulder. We're not gonna put them in the preseason game we'll keep in mind. I haven't played in roughly ten months to preserve a shoulder not put them in a preseason game but now what if he's not in football playing shape so that defensive end marcellus wiley just beat the offensive tackle on a quick lap. Remove all of a sudden dak would have escaped. But he's not in playing shape now. That doesn't escape now. That takes a hit that he wouldn't have taken had he been playing dustbin in playing shape and now that hit that would have avoided has now caused him to get injured again. All it is is robbing peter to pay paul but eventually somebody will always be short. They bred as i look at it. I'm still concerned because sure..

"Heard at the end of the bubble. I don't think he was helping all year. He then reaggravated it and he was injured and then he came back was injured and then he got hurt in the bubble. I think eddie was hurt all year. So the best guys got her one of them is the young guy on the team which i would think would speak to the fact that guys get hurt. All the and young guys get hurt. Kyra got hurt. Drill murray got hurt. James harden got. Anthony davis got hurt. Kawhi leonard got hurt. Those are all except for harden guys in their twenty s. So young guys can get hurt as well. The lakers did not need a massive overhaul now. The russell westbrook move is as brain and put it a bit of a chemistry experiment and lebron is going to see if he can do for us. What he's done for bausch and love and kyrie and ad which is take guys who've never been part of winning they get in lebron's orbit and all of a sudden they are shining a nice fancy championship ring. We'll see if that will work but the idea that this because they're thirty three instead of the heat. Yes i understand. They had shooters. Who didn't have shooters twenty twenty championship. Los angeles lakers. They didn't have shooters buddy. It was jail. Anthony was lebron shooting. Actually were good from the three point. Line actually were yes. They were good and they played phenomenal. Def- they were. They were a complete team. They were complete team for sure right now. You're probably see your miami somewhere reza to beat her three point result. He's their ninth man..

"So i do. Think wild that the kind of underrated story of this. Everyone talks about what a great job. Chris ballard has done and i think that is correct. I think grigson when he was running things with andrew lock was as did a poor of a general managing job as one can do. I think ballard's done an excellent job roster building but and we can show the graphic when carson wentz is your quarterback. You need to have a backup plan. Because it is not shocking. He got hurt. It would've been shocking if he didn't and i understand this is like an unlucky injury and they're like oh no he's at it for a long time but you right exactly right geno. They're all it's like if that if this you can't pencil yassin in for sixteen games and if you had real super bowl aspirations as i know some people like brain and really liked the roster and a lot of people do you need to invest better in your backup quarterback than your guy jacobson wild so the short version is hey if i'm the bears i'm cutting carson wentz. If i'm the colts i wish i on the bears on cutting nick foles. And if i'm the colt i'm asking myself why are we not prepared for the inevitable. Carson wentz injury. Okay so i have those live to solutions here. I about nick foles. I thought you. I think he made a great point but i don't cut him. I just send him somewhere else. And it's like a covert protocols. You see what's happening with the vikings calling mon and kirk cousins or in the kobe protocol. And they're like literally bringing in guys off the street to run. The practice. And i could see something happening like. We had with the broncos last year. We get a quarterbacks going into a covert protocol so you need to have guy separated. Nick foles good news. You're training camp is actually in a different part of illinois. So there you go. So here's i've got the solution for the colts in. It's a blind reveal in. this is so obvious. once i reveal the blind revealed. You're going to be like. Yeah that makes a lot of sense. Here's the guy who should be the quarterback for the colts. He's not done at all. He had to six wins. He had the eighth best completion percentage. He had the tenth most passing yards. And he was tied for ninth yards per pass. Nicholas know who it is is it. Philip rivers fifty dollars towards your gambling debts coach right now bring back philip rivers. He didn't really want to retire. Brandon. he didn't it was a very feels like yet. Hurry feels like he wanted to go. Go ahead let's hear what you are do. You are all i got you. I got you to put on your news at. let's go. let's well listen. Listen poor. Poor chris ballard. You highlighted him earlier. This dude is phenomenal. Will nick you talk about. This dude is next. Level general manager is next level team building and he also has his guy at the head coaching position and he lets his. Let him do his job. And so when you look at his stint in indy right. Now you come in. You think you have what you need especially at the quarterback position right you got andrew luck there and then andrew luck retires on u k encamp. That's brutal so then you go to a brusett okay. Did i say his name. Right to kobe's there you go co becomes grossing. Yeah yeah he was doing okay and then he he. He didn't pan now. But then you come in and you bring in. Philip rivers. philip rivers. Nick i know we went back and forth on this last year. He did a great job. A you didn't believe him and he took that offense. He took that team to another level and chris wanted him back. The whole organization wanted him back but he was torn. He wanted to go and he wanted to go. Be papa children and also wanted to be a high school coach. So i don't think this is going to happen because this was this ball was in philip rivers hands last year. And so. if. We're gonna talk about ballard in the what if the other. What if this they could have been with the assets they traded for carson wentz. They could've traded for jimmy garoppolo and now people want them to now. Trade for jimmy garoppolo. But the problem is they're already out draft picks 'cause they traded for carson wentz and they have wins his salary to deal with. So it's probably not tenable so the short version is. I think the culture pretty much screwed. Philip rivers is coaching high school. Football carson. wentz is out five to twelve weeks which call it three months and nick foles is putting job when he can't beat out. Andy dalton you. how are they not screwed. Brandon. what's their path. what are they gonna do. Great defense great defense and lean on a run game. Lean on run game. Don't forget about that nick. We can't yes you're right. It's going to be tougher for for for sure right. You need a guy that can come in there and get an can get it done. Excuse me but when you look at that. Defense dot five defense. That defense is smart. They fit their physical. They can turn the ball over and then you have an offense that can run the ball they can dominate the clock so they still have a chance. Please don't get that twist it right. We're gonna leave that. Take a turn offs in baseball time for the weird and the wonderful we got a little cleveland. Toronto separated by two hundred ninety one miles and by one blue jay superstar vlad guerrero junior a laser thirty four of the season. Second behind only who. Who would he be second behind.

"Post off seasons and finally happened and so they were saying the lakers need more shooting guy. The last four years is about forty percent on seven three point attempts per game. So that's how they're going to fill out their roster you're hearing good things about patty mills and or carmelo anthony. And the other thing that happened. Yesterday is what didn't happen yesterday. And that's schreuder didn't get signed all stop and tell me what's funny. Tell me what. I'm missing your anything. Tell me oh yeah. I'm sorry. I just love how you're trying to keep it together right now. This is the oldest roster in nba. History it feels like you got seven guys on guaranteed contracts. Six of them were thirty. Two took thirty two years of or older. And then you have four guys. As thirty five years of age. This is not going to get it done. i love how. You're being so optimistic but nick. This is not going to get it. Done so ages concern. You're a nets fan. The nets youth is who. I'm just curious. If you're a young up no tell me you. Only because of age. We don't have. We're not reliant. We're not relying on relying on thirty five and thirty six year olds. That's not. that's not the point. Getting the voters roster. It's not going to get it. Done buddy eater thirties. Katie's thirty three hold on hold on hold on. Let's let's be honest here. Katie's thirty-three hardens. Thirty two blake is an old dirty. Twenty kyrie's twenty nine. So you have. Lebron is the only guy older than that group. Lebron thirty six and then anthony davis i think is still pretty young. I'll check the birth certificate. I think he's twenty eight years old ross's thirty to twenty. So i if if the argument is that you know the bucks are younger and have more depth that's accurate but the argument is the lakers are too old within the nets are too old. You know who's really old wilde's the warriors they're all they're old. Well yeah. I mean we could check it. I would imagine the nets. Have one of the oldest rosters in basketball. So i like i win playoff games i think i think veterans playoff series. So i'm fine with an older team wild personally. Just that's just me budding young. Hey you're speaking my language. Showtime is back in los angeles now. Granted it's the two o'clock matinee that your grandparents go to what the same movies television cheaper. But still i am. Now the lakers guy jenna. I'm the lakers guy. Nick used to be the lebron guy. But hey you're playing basketball with a bunch of middle aged guys drinking wine and talking about the value in that holo speaking all day w language you would mean little guys and look brandon. You might say why because lebron's going to be thirty. Seven december raises thirty. Six dwight's thirty thirty five thirty six doesn't matter. We also have some breaking news. Nick a re-signing to pep if we can show the tweet here after the straight from toby johnson. We got news. Marcus hall announces plans to return to the rather than retire. Boom that's right. Let's keep rolling. Fellas no need to retire and i agree with you when we were talking about defense wins championships because member trevor. Rees eh when trae young tried to nutmeg. Guess what old guys. We're not into that. Tried to turn nutmeg me. Just what you're going to get pushed out of bounds. So i love it as a fellow old person of in here for it. I got tom brady. And i got the lakers. You and me buddy do peas and abbad. Let's go i. I understand that. I understand what you guys are saying. But i don't understand the point you're making so is the art. Our folks is anyone on this panel arguing. The denver nuggets are a championship favourite. Because they're young. Nicole is young. jomo murray's young. Michael was just talking about the lakers. A okay no. We're just because i'm a fan of the nets you can you. Can you can throw them in a conversation because you normal fan of the net. So it's really about the lakers in a nail. I talking about this. Not about the nuggets. Anybody asking no. I'm just asking who is the super young like we're talking about. The lakers were competing for championship. So who is younger not correct. That was going to out youth them. So that's the question. So like if the lakers age is a problem. It is a problem compared to whom. That's that's the question i have like. Who is this young team. Love that that is telling me Depending on this the science experiment how this pans out you guys have the potential to compete To come out the west one hundred percents. No doubt about that we got to see. You know how that big three jell together. What is going to do is going to continue to stay out there. And think he's a two guard. Standing on the perimeter is going to go really embrace the five i know. He said he was gonna do that. Let's see if he really does that. Lebron james lebron james wants to bring the ball up russell. Westbrook wants to bring the ball up. We saw we saw this before and houston in. It didn't work. So here's the problem. Nick is would. You just is competing for a championship. Do you guys have enough to beat the nets. Do you guys have enough to beat the books and the answer right now is no. There's no way healthy nets team. There's no way you beat them and there's no way you be your your team your favorite to win next year and that's the box and the best player will you deem the best player in the world right now yawn this. I just don't see it happening. And so listen i think right now. They'd be underdogs against the box. I i agree with that. And i think that y the way. The answer is the younger team that can win. Title is milwaukee milwaukee. Janas says younger than a d. drew. And chris middleton or in their very very early thirties and even though they have kind of tuned. They've got they've got a lot of youth there. They brought back bobby portis. That's the answer to me on that side of the bracket on the eastern conference because the heat got older by adding kyle lowry. The nets are a bunch of old guys and in the west you would say well. The sons have youth but they all predicated on a thirty six year old. Chris paul who has been shown his signs of age far more often than lebron shown his. But i i think that is the usually. Your concern with an older team is odd. Are they going to get out in transition. Well one that has russell westbrook is the point guard is going to do with. An older team is up. Are they going to be able to switch on defense. Well when you have. Anthony davis anchoring it the answer. That is yes you are like. I understand the on paper concern about age but the best teams in basketball right now. Our old teams. The nets are all the lakers rolled. The warriors rolled the heat. Our old ish. And then there's the sons with thirty six zero point guard and then there's the bucks who have the best of everything right now.

"That defender get him on his hill and kinda dictate the game. That way i think. And i have no doubt in my mind brussel figure it out. Lebron figure it out. I figured out in that coaching staff. A figure it out down in houston. What's that how come they didn't figure it out in houston. Well i don't. I don't think they had a over there. Analyst ryan naarden. That's that's a different story. That's a different story. You're talking about two different player. Played totally two different types of ways. You know where. James harden the guy that has to dominate the i don't think what brought after dominate the ball to be great. I think lebron is so great that at times he can defer. You know we've seen him do that in miami but when the chips are on on the table and all is on the line you best believe. That ain't gonna had a ball in his hand. Yeah i think lebron should look at it like this. He's third scoring option and get those two stars involve he's going to get twenty plus points just by being out there so i look for to feed them but like you said man this is we will see. This is a chemistry experiment. Unlike any i've seen in the nba even more so than what we thought butting going to blow up a we'll wait.

Oh jacksonville and before wrong. Right and but jacksonville. I'm saying afterwards. Oh yeah all needs a quarterback. He lost his job two or three weeks into that. If you remember that yeah and then he went to the bears lit up. Had a great comeback come from behind victory remember that and then they couldn't score. He was terrible. Chris i look i would not i agree with you. Nick foles is a lot like ryan fitzpatrick in that when the expectations are low. When i'm coming in to save the day and nobody expects anything. I'm gonna be great. But if you expect something when you put the franchise the starting lineup all my shoulders. And i'm your guy. I don't want that and rob. It told me he didn't want it. Remain and obviously his production in various places. You know you saw saint louis after played well in philadelphia right goes to saint louis dot granted. He had jeff fisher there so a lot of. Qb's haven't worked with jeff. Why these difference right right. Then he goes to philadelphia obviously wins the super bowl and as you said jacksonville fails chicago fails and rob. It told me about him when remember he could have left. Philadelphia was affiliate raji. Correct me if i'm wrong. But he chose to stay in philadelphia and be a backup at least initially right right. He chose the state air because he probably knew. I don't want that. We saw before christmas. Where was he in starter. Why you just said it would say louis right. And and what was the other place we started with the rams right you know. He started he games. Here and there right but raji. When was it that he had a chance to leave. But he chose to stay with philadelphia because he to be balanced over for mike vick with chip kelly ryan he had the twenty eight and two and then he cashed in after that but it might have go any lost. The job i He went to saint louis. Louis louis right okay. That's what i thought. But there was a point where he he chose to stay in the back. But here's the bottom line on this. I if indianapolis don't do it one we talked about. I think you'll let you down. He'll let you down. There's there's no buts about just like ryan. Fitzpatrick is going to let the washington redskins. Down is great but ryan. Fitzpatrick has started more eight games in a season..
"nick foles" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"You literally only have to pull in the parking lot, the on the grounds. Boom. Turn on the app. You are validated. You need your head home and you're good to go doing it on your phone right? And stay there and gamble at the beautiful points about sports. I love that. You know what? You know what we call that in this country. Convenience. Phenomenal. Phenomenal Anyway. Time for shot. No shot here is Tyler. Alright? So, Jeremy five Morning, Tyler. Are anybody good? Good. So Jeremy Fowler put everything good over there. Everything is good. Early start for. I understand. I know. So Jeremy Fowler put out an article about the top 10 trade candidates being players that could be shipped out. This off season, and two of them were bears Nick Foles and Akeem Hicks shot or no shot. Both of those guys are on the roster for week one Akeem Hicks and Nick Foles. Yeah, Like I was saying, I don't understand Why Nick Foles. You've got to make a deal here. He doesn't need to be here. He should be a backup someplace else. You don't. You don't have to starters, maybe three on the same roster anymore. In 2021. Mhm. Man. I'll say shot. That they they both will be on the roster because maybe it'll be something that happens in the season where he's moved. Yeah, he until they can figure something out. It costs you more to move him than it does to get rid of him. There's not a savings there because the way they had to structure the deal to get him to come off all the money he had in Jacksonville. So I fully believe that they would love to move. Nick Foles. They are trying actively to move Nick Foles. But unless they can get like the Jets, who need a backup to bite Not a lot of teams out there that are going to take on that contract. So Akeem Hicks will be here. They're trying to win. Nick Foles. That's a different story. It's a good question, though. Very good, Tyler. All right, Next up, Brian. Hey, Is it kind of hit on it a little bit earlier with Jesse, but Brian Hayes, Mr Base at first. And Bobby Witt Jr also missed home plates all in the same night. So I ask you is missing a base the most embarrassing flub you can have in a baseball game. I will say no shot. I just think that When you're when you have an easy ground ball as an infielder, that's tough, or if you are now fielding the ball hits off your head, Jose Canseco that one's embarrassing Rizzo the other day dropped the pop up that hit him right in the chest. Kicked his leg out. For what some odd reason I don't know what happened on that. Lost it in the sun is what happened on that pop up. I'm going to ask him that Friday night game, right? Uh, it was a night game. They? Yeah. So he lost in the sun. Yeah, exactly. The high sky in San Diego. What happened? I would maintain what happened to will Craig, when heavy bias is running as the most embarrassing thing that can happen to a baseball player. Agree what I want in Pittsburgh. Oh, happy by is he chased him to home plate. You think that's worse than missing a base? Absolutely. 100% home Run. Yes, yes. What, Craig? Well, Craig's thing that you're taught you have to touch all the bases. Yes, but it's happened enough where? Yeah, it's embarrassing. The will Craig thing. He was a freaking gift. And all and all he had to do was touch a base and he wouldn't have even been in that situation. Correct. Keep panicked. We'll give you context. Tyler. One of the biggest home runs hit in the in the sport of baseball. Mark McGwire almost miss first base he did when Dave Mackay went to give him a five. He missed first, He had to go back and touch it. Off of Steve Trachsel. Right? Correct. That was number 62. I believe so Even he almost Mr Bates. I would say these, I would say fielding gaffes. Would be ahead of missing missing a base. Seems like well, of course, we've seen gas more often than missing the base. But I would decide on that. And you think I would go with Mueller? Yeah, definitely. Tyler. Alright, so AK was an instrumental part of the drafting of Nicole Yokich, who won the MVP yesterday. Shot or no shot. You trust a K to have an M v p here in Chicago in the next five years. It's a great question, man. That is a really good one. Um I will say no shot to that. Yeah, I'm going to have to go. No shot to and beads still very young games in his prime. Yokich is in his prime. There's a lot of really, really wonderful pianist to rant. Yeah, are still In their prime. I think it's the five year qualifier that makes me hesitate. 10 years? Yes. Five years, no shot. The M V. The next M v P for the Bulls will be a draft pick. You think so? It's not going to be a disgruntled superstar, because what if Yokich does get disgruntled at some point or what if Dave Lillard ends up here? You think that You wouldn't want to go with the guy who picked him in the first place and trusted him. Has that relationship with him? I like the angle because he does have the internationally influence. Does Art Carney? There's no doubt that he has that right. He does. So, um I'm just going to my gut says my size will Gut says no shot to that. I think that he will bring in international flavor. I think he'll bringing quality players. Remember while AK was with Denver, he was able to build something, but there was a again tough West. Ceiling to the success. It's lucky that the Lakers are out of this thing where Utah or Phoenix has an opportunity to win the West because you don't have the usual in there, right? So I will say no shot to that There's going to be better players..
Wentz out of Philadelphia Eagles
"A very interesting. Nfl deal in at the philadelphia eagles have moved on from carson wentz. He's been traded to the colts massive contract as well. That's part of this deal. Is well taken that on when it goes to the colts for at twenty twenty one. Third rounder and twenty two conditional second round pick as i mentioned whence and jared goff the rams quarterback they were one and two in the draft and everybody thought they were all that the next big thing they had some success whence one super bowl now using kind of injury mode because nick foles won the won the super bowl for the eagles. The actual game but wentz was great. All that season and jared goff also went to a super bowl taken on new england and losing in the final so these guys had some success but man did they fall out of favor in a big old hurry both philly and l. a.

"There is time to get in and 855 to 1 to four. CBS say 55 to 124227. Or tweet me at John Marks. Media. Get some phone calls here coming up in a second. Sean Pendergast, I believe is coming up next. He normally is on after Me on Sundays. He's based in Houston, and Shawn Watson is still a Houston, Texas. So I was reading something this morning. Where, I guess if teams they're calling the Texans they're saying Nah, I'm out. Why not trade them? Right. Like they're not even accepting any trade offers right now. Just be careful. Be careful because teams made now say Okay, I You won't take my call. I gotta figure out my quarterback situation. Now, the drafting somebody Now they're trading for Carson Wentz. Now they're trying to do this now. They're trying to do that. So you may you may want to hold on to him, but I mean, unless unless you really think you can, and he agrees to it. Like you can't just say OK, we hold your right still 2028. They sit out like you don't wanna do that. You don't wanna do that. If you can't you can't repair your relationship with him could get three. Go get three first round draft picks and rebuild your team. Your team's gonna stick anyway, with With with Shawn Watson or not, And I'm not saying that you shouldn't try to repair the relationship. But so I guess they fired their equipment manager, the longtime equipment manager who apparently was very close with Shawn Watson. Which is now like another another. Instead of trying to keep guys around that the show on trusting fire the equipment guy, which is gonna make him even angrier, and it seems like they're trying to fire a lot of the people that were around pre They Jack Eastman guy, this this this guy that that was like, kind of running things down there in Houston, so I'm sure you'll get some more information coming out there. But that's That's the Houston thing. The the Eagles and a possible trade with Carson Wentz expected to happen tomorrow or Tuesday, with the Bears being the main team right now, unless somebody else gets involved into the Panthers were looking around. They were interested in that Stafford under the Colts were interested in Carson Wentz. Until the price got revealed, which I guess they weren't willing to do but the 11 thing and then we'll take some phone calls rumored to be a part of the deal. Coming back to Philadelphia would be Nick Foles. Nick Foles won the Super Bowl three years ago with the Eagles came in for an injured Carson Wentz. He is not going to stay there with Carson Wentz. I don't think Carson would go to the team if Nick Foles was there. I don't think there's any in and like they don't dislike each other, but Carson. Also, he's not gonna want to go from a team where he's trying to get rid of the ghost of Nick Foles, and then go to Chicago, where Nick Foles is actually there, So there's talked. It falls gets traded that eagles that would be a bad idea. And I'm a nick Foles fan. Believe it or not, Connor Green. I have Nick Foles tattooed on my back. Do you? Really? And if you google it If you google John Marks tattoo, you will see a huge Nick Foles on my back with Lombardi Trophy. And I am not a tattoo guy. I opened my mouth and said I would I would do it if they want a Super Bowl and they won the Super Bowl, so I did it. So I have no other tattoos that would have never gotten a tattoo. I have a huge Nick Foles face on my back my shoulder and then the Lombardi Trophy takes up like a quarter of my back. If you get the Super Bowl, though, it's worth it, so you'll live with it. Well, I mean, I guess they tell it to my wife who sold him the most getting it done. So I had a couple of months. Where where I was in the doghouse, for sure for getting the tattoo. She's like you're not getting the tattoo. Like I said, I would get the tattoo on the air. Right. So they win the Super Bowl Halftime Super Bowl 50 to look at my wife and I say, Oh, my God, They're gonna win this. I want to get that tattoo and everybody's like you're not gonna get the tattoo. Well, I got to test so anyway, Nick Foles coming back to Philadelphia's much as I love him. You just got you just had to Carson Wentz. Yeah. Drafted Jalen hurts. She created a quarterback controversy. So now Jalen hurts is your guy You're gonna straight, Carson Wentz. Everything that you do is to try to find out. If this kid can be your future. Could be your starter. Could be your franchise quarterback. So why would you bring in a guy who the minute Jalen hurts plays poorly. You're just creating a circus. You're just bringing in way too much noise because there's going to be people that say low Start Nick Foles. He won the Super Bowl. Like what? Forget Jalen hurts, right And what you want to do is you want to avoid all of that noise and you want to try to build a team around Jalen hurts. So bringing Nick Foles back to Philadelphia, but would be would be ridiculous in my opinion. So we'll see if that actually happens. 855 to 1 to four CBS 855 To 1 to 4 to 27 will go to the phones with Erin in Wisconsin. Aaron, you're on CBS Sports radio. How are you? Hey, what's going on? Thanks for taking my call. You're welcome. Thank you. How are you? I'm doing pretty good. So my favorite memory is being 10 years old and watching the Packers play the Patriots and, um Seeing Doesn't Howard returned the front? I think it was for a touchdown. And because I'm just every packer game when I'm 10 years old, like I'm completely wrecked, like I'm I'm got all my memorable stuff like out on the floor. Like every single week. I'm lining up on Sunday, so and then I'm you know, I'm not talking to anybody if they lose and So, Yeah. So, Yeah, I'm just I'm I'm all nerves. Uh, when that Super bowl starts, and when I see him, uh, return that for a touchdown that I'm starting to feel a little bit better. Yeah, that was that was like that's where that was a Bill Parcells Patriots team. Drew Bledsoe started last last week. And now two weeks ago must have crushed you. And it seemed like a crushed Aaron Rodgers because I Not today, Buddy assumes you're getting to get to the Super Bowl. But that is a really, really tough game..

"We're good guests lined up, but more Appropriate is the company I keep with you guys. You keep me honest. You keep me on my toes, and hopefully I keep you informed and maybe even chuckled some point over the next three plus hours. Hop aboard and share with me 855 to 1 to 4 to 27 couple Quick notes before I get my first call up here, Um, one of the kind of sort of it's heading in that direction. Breaking news story in the I fell It started with a couple of writers in Philadelphia to guys I know in boats are very good writers left less bone and jump McClane from the photocopy inquire. Said, Uh, sources saying that the Eagles air not only in conversation for trading Carson Wentz, but the conversations of proceeding and getting closer. The ESPN guys jumped on the bandwagon a couple hours later and said, Um, getting close, Carson went could be heading out of Philadelphia. Ah, Natalie Agon off who works for the fanatic in Philadelphia, said her sources and telling her that the deal is almost done. With the Chicago Bears. Carson Wentz heading from the Eagles to the Bears in exchange for Nick Foles going back So Philadelphia, a first round draft pick and possibly a third player. Wow. If that trade comes down, it does make some sense because Nick falls when he left, the Eagles went to Jacksonville signed a pretty big contract. So you've got a pretty big salary number that would help. Out, uh, kind of level off the scales of what they're doing taking carts and went and it's happy contract in Chicago Eagles would have to find a way to fit. Nick Falls under their salary cap, because, remember there taking a mega dead cap it money, Uh, dead cat money hit by trading winds. Over $30 million Sunday and they're not cap friendly. To begin with. So taking falls fact is probably some they'd prefer not to do. It's kind of like golf when he went from L. A Theo. Uh, Detroit. That was not necessarily something Detroit was dying to do. But the Ram said we can't. We're gonna take on Stepford and his contract. We can't afford to keep God so you're gonna take up That's could be a quarterback quarterback trade again, so play along those same lines. I didn't think they could get a first for Carson went with the awful God awful season and he had I I thought at best they get a day to pick not a day one pick and they may get another player on top of it. Latest rumors. Carson Wentz, the carousel quarterback is still spinning all over the NFL. So Eagle fans you wanna hop on or bad friends Hit me up 855 to 124227.

You have very much looking forward to it. I just wanted to ask you a quick question. Both teams tomorrow, coaches quarterbacks in the organizations of the whole What do you think has more pressure on them to come up with the wind tomorrow? Ooh, pressure on the coach. If the tent city teeth were not the defending Super Bowl champions, it would be an easy answer. Randy read because he had been around for a long time. He'd gotten close a bunch of times with the Eagles got there once lost that Brady guy. One time he made it to the Super Bowl. It Eagles, but he did get the monkey off his back last year. So just because of that, I would say slightly more pressure on Arians, Um, close between the two teams. I think they both wanted. I think they both are looking to establish something so pressure is is on both teams but slightly more on Tampa near staff. I very much agree. And who knows. If Tom gets this for next year, you know it's ah Once in a lifetime opportunity, but not just for him, but for the team, you know? Yeah. So what? Once in a lifetime, except this is the 10th in the lifetime For Tom Brady. He kind of makes it a habit of showing up on Super Bowl Sunday and driving and playing and more often than not winning s so we'll see if he gets number seven. Tomorrow. Trang could call.

"Heard confirmation from the Bears. But every credible source even ones that have blocked me on Twitter are reporting that Payson Nagy will indeed return in their current roles. So I ask you this this morning. Good morning, Jonathan. Are you excited for football next year and you call in? Recency bias Go. No, I'm done with him. Are you truly done? That's what they're banking, right? That's the big question, right? You look at this Bears team and you say second verse. Same as the first Nothing's going to change all of ass force change because change is actually good for the Bears. But as I told you after the loss, I said, you know. George McCaskey, and I know you're listening. Georgia's you Drive in because you want quality sports talk every morning. That's why listening Captain Jay Hood bottom line is is that I know George thought to himself. Oh, we were in the playoffs, too, are the last three years. That's good enough for me because he takes a look at the bears over the years and say it's very red. The bears to give the playoffs that often. And so he looks at that and believe that that is a positive for the spirits team without looking at the looking at what's really happening with this football team, the quarterback. You don't know what quarterback you'll have. You don't know your number One wide receiver is you don't know where you're gonna have a special teams. You don't know who's gonna rush the passer. All these question marks are out there for the Bears. But yet they feel that status quo is good enough. Well, it sounds like they're just gonna run it back for at least one more year to see what happens. And I would say that you are wasting time by doing so. Do you believe that it's simply because we're in a pandemic, and there's no sponsors, and there's no stick it sails. And Whatever you want to talk about finances. Heard water yesterday. They get $275 million, like every other team in the league at the start of the year for the national TV contracts, which are in the billions and billions of dollars Do you think if we had had 65,000 for eight home games and all the sponsors and all the gear, and there was never a pandemic that they'd make a change? Um, probably not. Probably not. I'm with you. I think it's still this is the bear. This has nothing to do with finances because we know that there are a number of teams across sports that already have contracts in place whenever we get back into sports again, whether the NFL with his major league baseball, whatever those contracts already written, so it's not about the pandemic because we know we're going to get on the other side of this and we'll get back to some kind of normal state. As I don't deal with that. It's just that There's a loyalty issue where you can be so loyal and used You like the room so much that you don't realize what's happening on the field. You know, it's not one of these unfortunate things where the Bears rate in eight are. We just fell short in the playoffs. If you've lost eight of your last 11, you're not going in the right direction. All you want is someone to be able to guide a team offensively to be with the rest of the Joneses in the NFL, you know? Have it during this whole pandemic live empty stadiums. We've never seen more points scored in the National Football League this year. Just this year is the most points scored ever in the NFL. Come the bears that really part of that. You want to be part of that, right? I mean, a major part of that was what I mean, right? Correct. And so we never had more points scored has never been more verticals never been more tailored to the offense than this year. And the Bears in that part of that, and that's a problem. Huge problem and again, Tennessee runs the ball, You condone it creatively in different ways. We brought a guy in. He's a really good man. He is a really nice guy to deal with. He's respectful, But guess what you were brought here to modernize the Chicago Bears offense, and you've stayed mired in the bottom quarter of the league. Period. Thank you for the efforts your great dude. It hasn't worked, and you can put all of it that you want on Mitchell Travis Key. You went out and got Nick Foles. That was your handpicked guy that didn't work, either. You can't tell me there's no weapons on this team. You can't tell me that was the NFL network yesterday and they said, you know, in Chicago, They got to go get a new left tackle. But James Daniels is one of the five best interior blockers. They said that kid has emerged. They love him. He'll be healthy. Okay, Cody White. Here's a good player You brought in bars and must of her took you a long time to realize they should be playing. But you finally did. They're pretty decent players. We'll get a really good left tackle or all of a sudden you go lines. Not too bad, right? So why can't you score freaking points? Because we have to break down. Two words. One of them this system. The other one is scheme. Now to some, It's the same thing right? So system that your scheme now there's two different things, right? You know, as Lou Holtz always would say to one of those guys on the the offense he goes, You know, I don't like this guy because you steamer. You don't have a shift in but you gotta seem very schemer. Make fun of that coach on his staff. Because all you're into his schemes. What about point? You're always so there's a difference between scheming and a system. You know that Maggie told us a few days ago that we all know what the system is. We know what the bears all about Now. Offensively, we know our identity. No, you don't. Nobody knows. And I don't think they know up there. What is your identity? You just now started run the football in December. T o your lies David Montgomery. There's a difference between scheme and system scheme is like, Hey, you know what This is kind of the kind of thing I think we should do system is this is what we are going to do well said. There's a difference between the two great There's three things that you've got to be able to capitalize on. What your coach tell me if I'm wrong or add on to what I'm going to give you It's either the system it's players in leadership. Those are three things. The system is. This is our identity. We walk in the field. This is who we are offensively. Come stop us. No, I was not the biggest lovey fan. I wasn't but you know who that you know what they weren't in yet? What did he say? We're going to get off the bus running. You could say you don't like that. That's fine. They knew who they were right? Did you know? I mean, for better for worse, you know who they were right? So system players. Of course you can't win without good players. You gotta identify who your players are. You're not going to have across the board all pros. If you can get a couple of guys from a wide receiver standpoint, a quarterback offensive line defensive line secondary could pick out certain guys who say those are cornerstones. Can't find him on this football team. Not across the board. No, not across the board. You can't And, of course, leadership. Has either got to come from the top was gonna come within the team with the players. Who's a leader on this team. Who's on who's on this team has a leader Alan Robinson clue. Matt didn't say anything. Who's the leader on this year? So they are bereft of a lot of these things. The system the leadership, you got some players shore, but that does not complete the full circle cap. Don't have three things that you gotta look at. What's your system? Who are you? We all know you says we know you know who our identity is. Now. What is your identity? No, That's the problem. Right? Who are you? Who are you defensively. You get takeaways..
"nick foles" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"A game. Probably not. But they made the playoffs too. Out of the last three years. He's coming back, probably with the rest of the offensive staff. Truck forgot? No, Maybe not. He might be like, Oh, he might be the fall guy for this If something happens if they played poorly against the Saints if the defense place poorly against the state, and they don't win He might be the sacrificial lamb and forgotten might get fired. Given their draft position, which is no better than 19th. They're probably going to miss out there. Definitely missing out on fields. They're definitely missing out on Trevor Laurence. They're probably gonna miss out on Trey Lancer. Probably gonna miss out on Zack Wilson. Unless they trade up a couple picks. They might miss out on Mac drones, depending on how the draft goes. We can go through the teams that that you know, are going to be looking for a quarterback and whatnot. But odds are they're not gonna be taking quarterback so I would lead one to believe that we know Nick Foles is gonna be back on the team given his his contract situation, and probably Travis Key's gonna be back for another year, at least right? We can safely say those things are true. Right. You agree so far, so far so good. No, not really. But continue on. No, I'm just you know, I think I'm gonna let you go first. And then then, Yeah. So clever retort. So at this point Really? Thanks for biscuits coming back. I think I think he will. Yeah. Continue on I don't want into. I'm going, but I think he will for yours. I don't want you to come back to me. And I think he will. I don't want Ryan pays to come back. But I think he will. And at this point now where you have to lose going some games. I'm not rooting against them. So when you ask, what do you want? What do you want from the Bears, and I want them to win like I'm not rooting against them because it doesn't do any good to root against them. At this point. I'm a Bears fan. I want the bears to win a playoff game. I want them to win multiple playoff games at this point because the fates are sealed. The fates. We know what's gonna happen that Maggie's not going anywhere. The coaching staff isn't going anywhere. Maybe Pagano Ryan Pace might get a promotion. If you if you read what Brad Biggs is writing might get a promotion. And then you might be looking for a new GM. So if that's the case, go win some games. Because maybe if you get a new GM in here, then maybe there's a chance that that Travis Key is gone and you say, Look, I'd rather deal with the unknown of drafting a quarterback and having him play right away. Learning from Nick Foles, all that good stuff because we know fools is probably gonna be the backup and not going anywhere And then that's it. So go win some football games. So here's where I will disagree with you. I think the quarterback position I think it's still up in the air on how that will kind of settle throughout this off season. Into next year. You and I. Before this season, we made our predictions here on the show. I thought the Bears would go seven and nine. I thought that they would miss the playoffs. And if that were the case, I thought there could be changed. The one thing I have said this entire season through the ups and the downs the six game losing streak, the five and one start. No matter who the quarterback was Nick Foles or Mitchell Travis Key. I said that if they made the playoffs, I felt as if they would all be safe. I think, Matt now you will be safe. I think Ryan pace will be safe. I think they will be coming back now based on the way this team's performed to get to the 18 8 into sneak into the playoffs with the seventh seed. Which, by the way, does not sit well with me. And if you're a bears fan, you Yeah. You don't want to tell people how to fan but for me today it does not sit well with me to sit here and say Yeah, we're a playoff team, but we just got our brains beat in by the Packer. You're not American. They got a plan. I'm just like you're not American. You filled up. I'm letting you know as a bears fan, this American thing in the world to get beat down by the Packers. Twice. Yeah, here at the end of the year and in the final week of the season, that does not sit well, you lost in you want American disgruntled? Know why OK, why so so when from when we look at this team going forward. In the playoffs. I do agree with the concept that once you're into the playoffs, Yeah, let's go win Some football games like this franchise in Lost 30 years does not play a whole heck of a lot of playoff football games. Why don't we win a few? That would be nice. I agree. Going forward, though. The only thing I disagree with you is on the quarterback position how they're going to enter next season, which will have time to figure that out. And we know that Nick Foles is under contract. What is scary was scary to me would be heading into this offseason or Tre Biscuit going goes on a nice run here in the playoffs. So like two back to back stellar games, not this stinking dunk nonsense that everyone wants to talk about. I'm talking about Travis Key goes out there throws down the field with confidence and puts up 30 plus points on a good saints defense and whoever they face in the following week. And then Ryan Pace signs them to extension. That would be my fear is that You, You base, extending Travis Key off of a two game sample size because it's quote the playoffs. It's what we saw The Ravens due to a higher, higher level with Joe Flacco, which we knew Joe Flacco was never the guy worthy of the contract that you signed, too. But he led the Ravens who Super Bowl so they paid the guy and that's just kind of how win. I don't want the Bears make that mistake. I do think everyone's safe going forward because they made the playoffs. I agree. I think that it depends. Right. I would hope that the front office and that being Ryan pace, whoever they bring in if he gets promoted and Ted Phillips leaves, and he gets the president's job, and then you know you bring in a new GM. I would hope that they would look at the body of work. It's Robiskie and even look at the game against the Packers and look at the last few games. It just say, Look, this is not a sustainable offense. Yeah, you can beat up on the bottom of the barrel defense is but when it comes to you, I mean and look, Let's be honest. Green Bay's defense. Isn't that great? The final de vio a rankings for the year just came out just came up fresh off the presses. Green Bay 17th. And they couldn't they struggled to move the ball 16 points yesterday. Exactly. So now you're facing in New Orleans team who's right second in defensive Devi away. I would say it's probably not going to go that well, and I would hope that they would go with the unknown rather than what we know from Travis. Key Bears fans 3123323776 talk football with US. What do you want from this Bears team? Did you just want them to make the playoffs? You want to beat the Packers each and every year. Do you want both? You want Super Bowl contender? You want change? Do you wish this team missed the playoffs so you would get changed your thoughts next, You're Listeningto Black and Abdullah, ESPN 1000, Chicago's home for sports. Waddle and Sylvie could.
What Is Wrong With Carson Wentz:
"Philly eagles and seahawks and birds and other birds only one type heading south carson wentz again trying to prove a starter status again coming up short another interception adding to his league-leading totally was also six. Times is back backup. Jalen hurts saw just to blaze last night. We'll have much more on him in just a second but first eagles get the win. Here's carson winston after last night's loss to seattle. There's been a lot of talk and speculation. You possibly getting benched or something like that. I mean does that way on you at all. Do you think about that at all. And that occurred during the game. Any of that. Come up. i mean. I said that last week you know this is what you sign up for as a quarterback member. Since you're a kid you know you're prepared for for any of those nothing's ever guaranteed and so for me i. I don't think about that though. I just try and go out and be the best player. I can be in practice. Prepare my tail off. Compete my tail off and You know hopefully we can get this thing turned around but I think about those things. I might give it everything i got every time i step on the field. I think i said the eagles went. Obviously the seahawks won there and carson wentz with the barrage of questions about his plane time plane status plane brandon start with you did carson wentz play well enough to keep his starting job moving forward. Well i mean i hell. Mary was nice. i mean how. How often do we see that at all. He but outside of that. Mary no he. He didn't play well. The coaches the coach. Well defense didn't play well enough. This is one of those years. Nick where everybody needs to be on notice when you play like this and miss division everyone should be on notice and then you can go back to last couple years outside of their super bowl. Run it's always been a struggle for this organization. If i'm the owner. I am looking at everything. I'm looking at the general managers there's other gaps. There's other holes on this team is not just carson wentz. it's also the linebacking core and it's not that the linebacking core isn't playing. Well they're just not very good they don't have any debt so with that mind like you gotta talk about. Who's making those decisions. And you got to hold them accountable. So this entire organization. Mic should be on notice at listen. I think might garafolo is the one who reported this morning that he can no longer report. That doug peterson is totally save. Despite being just three years removed from actually winning a super bowl something carson wentz is not able to say. He did what that means for our rose. One of the front office will see. And you're right brandon. This is a team that has a multitude of issues but their biggest issue is this in twenty twenty the worst starting quarterback in football now. That's not a statement of opinion. That's just if according to the numbers we can show them. The worst fulltime starting quarterback in the nfl is carson wentz and the spat back that up one hundred percent. He's thirty fifth worse in everything. And there's only thirty two teams folks and he is a turnover machine he runs into sacks he doesn't make the big throws anymore. There's been one game all year long that he didn't turn the ball over and in that game. He fumbled twice. They just happened to recover them so it does feel however wildlife carson wentz might be the one with the most job security because of the contract. He's been signed to based on performance. You have a twenty eight a guy that's going to be twenty eight this month. He's in year five and he's playing the worst football of his career. That is more than a sign for his future. But do you think that's all of his fault nick. Because morning i wake up. And i make a little menu and i called my my kitchen. Where do my work hot take cafe and on today's menu. Here's what we had. You can make your choice. Everyone you can have bad coaching with a side of bad. Play design you can have bad decision. Making with a side of bad throws you could have bad wide receivers and bad protection. Those your options at the take cafe for me. I want went bad protection. I went with the six acts. We're not his fault. The league leading forty six x also. Not his fault he also had some throwaways there and i was watching the game last night neck and i was like oh the one when he was chased out of the pocket to avoid an intentional grounding. He threw it to the first down. Even though it came up short i was like. Oh that's a. That's a good play. That's a quarterback you can build around. I'm like what what is happening. I'm calling a throw to save even intentional grounding a good play and he could say like. I don't put it on the offensive line. Louis riddick mentioned it last night when they went to the super bowl best offensive line surprise surprise. Takeout carson wentz put. Nick foles doesn't matter to me. It starts with the offensive line. I know there's a lot of side dishes but it's an offensive line thing for me.

Chicago Bears: Matt Nagy handing over play-calling duties
"And let's see if the bears moving offensive coordinator duties will be money on the field tonight. Normally it's mad nagy their head coach. He's been offensively inclined. That's why the bears hired him away from kansas city where he was working under andy reid but with the bear struggling. They're handing over play calling duties to bill laser. He's been in the nfl for a while. We'll get into his bio in just a second to see what you can expect on monday night football when the bears. The bears take on the vikings. Here's matt nagy essentially saying. I didn't really want to do this. But i've been around long enough to know i kind of had to do this. I've been around. Obviously one of the greatest head coaches in the history of this game and coach reid and of the best play callers in the history of this game co treat reid and for me in that time where he was able to show the trust in me at that point to give it to me to to run the offense and call the plays there was a little bit of a change and sometimes when you're in this position that we're in right now you wanna make sure that you're looking for solutions and you know you can always talk about execution. You can always talk about teaching. You can always talk about all facets of the game but this year with me going through that and seeing what can come from it. I just think it's it's the right thing to do. And we'll see where it goes. Laser been a longtime. Nfl assistant key the eagles the bengals. The dolphins is actually the oc for the dolphins for a couple years falcons washington football team seattle in more subordinate position. So he's been around the block. Tell me what this means i. It just means dead the pressures on in whenever you see a coach head coach playcaller give up play calling duties this late in the season. That tells you the pressures on in conversations have been had that they've got to figure out another way to generate points because clearly the will matt nagy calling. The plays was not working and if he continued to call the plays and continue to go the way that has been going. There's a large chance of the possibility that he may not be retained after the season. So he's trying to fix it before they get to that point which is smart on his part. I mean look when you go to. This is when you go to this. This is the last stop right. this is right. This is the last stop. We gotta turn it around because if we don't chances are i'm going to have for sale sign point in january in front of my house on the the reality of what they have to make the playoffs in your expectation for matt. Nagy not to lose his job i would. I would think so. But i'm but i'm not the owner of the team but i would say that for the general manager matt nagy to be back with me and twenty twenty one. They've got to get to the playoffs especially we started off with a quarterback that we drafted several years ago. It was the second pick in the first round. We went away from him. We listened to you by going out and getting nick foles and now we missed the playoffs. I can't bring you back.

Bill Barnwell on NFL Undefeated Teams + Monday Preview
"Bill Barnwell. It is late Sunday night almost midnight, which means it's time for you to make me smarter about the NFL. I'm going to try my best Baba Bill. Barnwell is a senior writer for ESPN host of the Bill Barnwell show and he's procrastinating his deadline to talk to me. So we just watched the saints and the packers on Sunday night football and the saints lost without. Their Star Receiver Michael Thomas. But that did not stop us from getting a whole bunch of touchdowns drew brees and Aaron Rodgers. Each threw for three a piece. But in the end, the packers won the saints lost and they've now lost New Orleans says back to back games for the first time since two thousand, seventeen bill I know you are writing a new piece about drew brees coming off of the two year deal that drew brees signed in the offseason and what we've now seen from him through these first three weeks what did you see in Sunday night's games he regressing improving? What do we have with bruise right now? Okay. So public drew brees definitely improving this is a better performance from him. Me brees was downright bad on Monday night in week two against the raiders before we got to garbage time and breeze didn't do deep very frequently until this game was out of hand but I think the concerns i. have read or have heard about arm strength or how deep is passes typically go they don't really get how reason this offense actually worked. Breezes sort of like. A singles hitter in baseball like Tony Gwynn lagging time where a post player with no range in basketball he's not going to suddenly start throwing deeply. He's Patrick Mahomes at forty one years old breeze has succeeded. Over the last three years while throwing the shortest paths in the League because he's posted the three best single season completion. In NFL history. Now. The good news for the Saints Good News For Saints Fans is that brees was much more accurate on Sunday night it was twenty, nine, thirty, six for two, hundred, eighty, eight yards a lot of that West Alvin Kamara who did a lot of the work but still going to end up thirty six is still better than where brees was. The bad news was just about everything else. The Saints Lost Starters Jared Cook and Andres P to injuries while devante. Adams List Aaron Rodgers threw for two hundred, eighty, three yards and those three touchdowns you mentioned. The saints focused on adding veterans with nicknames Emmanuel Sanders and balcony. Jenkins this off season. But. Sanders hasn't been able to stand out with ankle Thomas Injured and Jenkins has been picked apart in pass coverage including Mercedes Lewis touchdown on Sunday night the attorney for more accurate breeze that was a bright spot. But if the saints continue to struggle with injuries and get disappointing play from their stars, the Orleans is going to need this version of free stick around to have a chance to compete in the NFC. So the packers emerged three no, and that's where a lot of focus the rest of our conversation here on the teams that are now undefeated through three weeks of the NFL season. So bill, let's push deeper into the NFC here because the Chicago Bears Be Chicago bears are somehow three you know and they do it by beating the Falcons thirty to twenty six Chicago was trailing by sixteen head coach. Matt Nagy Decides to pull quarterback Mitch Trubisky in favor of the veteran nick foles mister big bleep nick himself who goes on to throw three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter. So I have a two part question for you now. Why are the Falcons physically incapable of holding onto a fourth quarter lead and? Secondly, where does this leave the whole quarterback situation in Chicago? Let me answer the second part of that question I. The bears are going to flail by the seat of their pants for the rest of the season I would assume that nick foles is going to start until he struggles and the bears trailing by two touchdowns in the fourth quarter a couple weeks from now, I would point Mitch Trubisky will come in and lead them to victory and the cycle will start the new. Unfortunately I don't have one simple takeaway for our poor friends and Atlantic. Is Different From what we saw in week to as. Much. As the defense was disappointing in this game, the offense really deserves a fair chunk of the blame for what happened scored a touchdown on the opening drive third quarter, and then basically tried to sit on their lead, Matt Ryan and company REPA- total three first downs on their next six is before the bears took the lead back and the only scored one field goal over that time after bisky intercession back running back Brian L. dropped an easy third down conversion which would have put the Falcons and field goal range. Then on the next drive kicker, young coup miss a forty eight yard field goal attempt. I know. I mean let's be fair. The Falcons defense was very bad. I'm not sure the Falcons are gonNA make any drastic changes on Monday morning, but Arthur blank can feel great about seeing this happen. On his seventy eighth birthday and. I believe I'm not mistaken not the only person celebrating birthday on Sunday. Having Birthday Pamela. Day Pablo. Yeah this is a hard way to discover that you share a birthday with the owner of the Atlanta Falcons Bill, which feels like you just cast a pox upon my house.

A couple of touchdown passes completes 90% of his passes. He is Mr September. Yes, MMA club. You can't say you caught a pass. He threw it in the defense of lime and bad id her right back to him. Didn't count. It's a catch, like Nick Foles in the Super Bowl writing. No, it's not. But he did catch a
Mitch Trubisky Expected To Start As Chicago Bears Quarterback Over Nick Foles
"Let's start off talking about your pal and my pal super bowl fifty, two hero nick foles and when. The Chicago bears traded for Nick foles over the off season for a fourth round pick we all largely assumed it would be to replace Mitchell trubisky as the team starting quarterback. Otherwise, why do you go out and trade for Nick Foles? Mitch Trubisky is a pretty bad quarterback in the Chicago offense. Last year was pretty dreadful with Mitch Trubisky as signal caller and the two were. They were involved in some kind of quarterback competition this summer in training camp everyone I think myself especially just figured Nick foles would win that job. Well, NFL DOT com reporting that trubisky has beaten out nick foles for the starting quarterback job in Chicago. Remember all that talk about whether the eagles should keep foles or go with Carson wentz. Now, he can't even beat out Mitchell and I love Nick foles this is not me bagging on Nick foles but I'm finding it hard to believe that Nick foles doesn't look better in Camp Than Mitch Trubisky you Mitchell Trubisky is literal. Well, listen to the numbers. Okay. The bears offense averaged seventeen and. A half points per game last year and ranked in the bottom five points per game and in total yards. Okay. Trubisky through for thirty one, hundred, thirty, eight yards, seventeen touchdowns, and ten interceptions. He's a terrible quarterback he looked like he might be improving in two thousand eighteen he played pretty well in the bears playoff loss to the eagles especially at the end of the game when he made some big plays, but he regrets terribly in two thousand nineteen. That's Chicago offense was awful and Trubisky was one of the big reasons why only seventeen touchdowns on the season? There's a reason there's a reason the Chicago bears went out and got nick foles. And Nick foles has a higher ceiling the Mitchell trubisky. You can't tell me what after what we saw Nick Foles do in that playoff run in two thousand seventeen that he doesn't give you a better chance to win. Unless Nick foles arm is falling off for or age has really set in in a big way with Foale's we don't know because we haven't been able to watch any preseason games. So we have no idea what's going on in matinees training camps and what's happening behind the scenes, but it's mind boggling to me that they're going to go with the guy who in Mitchell trubisky you know what he is by this point and you know what Nick foles can do. Both of these guys have a low floor. There's there's no question we've seen nick foles when he's not on play terrible football he's not a good quarterback when he's in one of his slumps but when he's hot. There are few that can match nick foles can do when Mitchell trubisky is hot. It's only slightly better than not. So Great Mitchell trubisky what and we just to think about what Nick Foles did in those two playoff games in the NFC championship game, and then in the Super Bowl to do what he did on that stage and the love that his teammates have for him I just it's a it's a very curious decision by Matt. Nagy and the Chicago bears to go with Mitchell trubisky over nick foles but that's the decision they've made I think. Long Story, Short Nick Foles my prediction will start more games than Mitchell trubisky this year when all is said and done nick foles is probably you're starting quarterback not long after the season begins and my guess is if he stays healthy nick foles starts more games than trubisky this year. Because I know the bears aren't really that smart and I know they they sunk a lot into trubisky drafting him when they did. But at some point, you just got to cut the cord move on I i. We don't know what's been going on in training camp at. Nick foles must've looked really bad in training camp for them to go with trubisky over him.
How Will Cam Newton Make the Patriots Better?
"All right bill. We're here today to talk about the New England Patriots and Cam specifically began her. They used to film. The Cincinnati bengals sideline for which they were find over a million dollars mosque third round. Pick well the good news. Is that they've decided to uproot their entire organization and totally chance planet quarterback to bury the latest piece of evidence that there maybe not playing by the rules as everybody else. Bill Barnwell is the host of the podcast. The bill Barnwell show. You just, but there are people on the Internet positing that these events are connected. Of course. We are here today to talk about. The other came Cam Newton the New England. Patriots who could have predicted this? IS GOING TO RELEASE CAM to they're going to wait, and the Patriots are going to get him for nothing and they're going to be good. It's going to be awful in offense. It was impossible up to this point. The idea that the only team in the league that to starting quarterback might possibly make a move for the best available starting quarterback on the free agent market see Telepho-, obvious when you lay it out like that, but here's the thing it's June and according to our Adam Schefter. No other teams exception to the Browns who had some interest put in a call then New England goes out, and they get cam for basically nothing veteran minimum with incentives. How bill how? I think it's a combination of things I mean. Obviously the coronavirus has impacted team's ability to see workouts to administer physicals and Cam Newton of course as a player coming off of a serious injury, eight frank injury to the middle of his foot, which cost him pretty much. The entire two thousand nineteen season for that coming off the shoulder surgery has not been healthy in a while, and so you'd figure in a typical circumstance. He would be easy for teams to kind of see what cam has left, and then make an offer only, but there haven't really been teams able to make the sort of offers that would justify starting quarterback role. And then I think from camps perspective he rightfully would rather be making less money with the opportunity to start for the new, England Patriots say a playoff team from a year ago, then serve as a perhaps higher paid backup in a spot where he's unlikely to play. Knowing how little New England paid for him and looking back at some of the other quarterbacks who got jobs during free agency? Are there any teams that you think would have been wise to jump ahead of new? England and WHY IS IT CHICAGO? I do think that the decision to trade for Nick. Foles a player who realistically has if not Worse Injury History Than Cam Newton certainly a comparable injury history when it comes to his checkered past i. do think that the bears would have been in much better shape. Do Not trae draft pick and to sign Cam Newton for much less money than they're going to give nick foles over the next three years and I think there's a handful of teams that. That even if it happened as a backup, I think teams like the steelers. Of course you've talked about the titans as possible CAM, Newton location and I think absolutely teams like that have a veteran quarterback with a history of injuries and very little behind them in the backup role would have absolutely been smart to making move for Cam Newton, but obviously I think it's the Patriots benefit that the League has been so conservative when it's come to approach again. Let's talk about what we can expect out of canning. Which I realize, you are not a doctor, but the big question mark is you've outlined his health the last time we saw him play. Football was the beginning of the two thousand nineteen season. He only played a couple of games before his season ended due to a foot injury, he incurred during the preseason. What did you see out of Cam the last time he was healthy? The last extended stretch we saw from Cam Newton as a healthy quarterback, was the first half of twenty eighteen, and he was excellent. Newton throws. Fabio Capello Panthers one of the best teams in football at six to newton was tenth and Passer Rating Twelve Qbr and the panthers had guilty scheme that was designed to actually trying to out more quickly and leave some of the hits that candidate taking, and we saw his numbers include accordingly. SNAP TO NEWTON looking left throws it over the Middle Touchdown Greg Olsen. Cam Newton looking like a poster on feats. Assume. Thirty so frequently earlier in his career, they always posted pretty mediocre. Completion percentages in two thousand eighteen across the first half you had a completion percentage of sixty seven point three percent that was one of the best marks in football. He was averaging nearly four touchdowns for every pick producing really two hundred eighty yards per game from scrimmage. He was illegitimate MVP candidate through the first half of twenty eighteen. And then of course, the injuries struck. Labor rotator cuff just to soreness. He had a shoulder injury that led to surgery after two thousand eighteen. And then the foot injury cam stumbles Abu to the nearside. He's in trouble. Hit droplet like. Damn comes off the field limping a little bit maybe. But you tried to play through and was unable to do so.
