Final 53-man roster projections for all 32 NFL teams
"We're to get into the fifty three man roster. So today, we're going to make some projections I did a roster projection heading into training camp was on July twenty seven I had Jalen Hurd making the team I had Sean Coleman making the team. I had a few other players that they're just not going to make the team for whatever reason. So we're going to do that again today after trying to cap after all the news after everything we've seen and read and it will let's just compare to see what's changed since. So start with the first things first quarterback, Jimmy, Garoppolo, nick, mullins, CJ, Beathard I think they all make the roster I. Don't think that that's going to be very you know very controversial. It should be. I mean yeah. I I. Agree I all three of them making the roster as well. Especially, this season with Cova did I imagine that most teams will try to carry three quarterbacks if they can especially just given you know you never know. What happens if Garoppolo or mullins or you know they were to test positive or whatever the case is right and they were mistime than having Beth who understands the system? He's not great by any means just having them in the building is going to be advantage. Advantageous this season. I made this comment to someone else earlier Beth. `Red to George Kettle is Kinda of like you know James Jones or Mike Miller was. and. Lebron he's like teams back in the day. He used to have like those guys like travel with him. I think CJ beathard and George kind of like that George must have somewhere in his contract that Caesar method must be on the roster wherever he is. Those our buddy buddy but jokes, apart I I think all three of them will will make the team. So that's funny. You say that because Caitlin Beth one throwing to kill this off season for the most part it wasn't. Garoppolo. So maybe there is this weird clause in the contract right? I mean I feel like I could make a stronger argument where you carry two quarterbacks as opposed to three just playing the odds last year I can understand it as you know Garoppolo is coming off an injury. So you want to just protect your quarterback you WanNa make sure that you know united last minute fishing for a quarterback but you know he's out there he looks comfortable. No knee brace. In just in this situation I just can't understand a situation where. What are the odds that your third quarterback plays a snap in the regular season game just play the is I imagine that's less than ten percent very, very low at imagine. Right if we're going to do that, yet are the likelihood of a quarterback testing positive for having that whole situation happened shared night. There's a possibility that can happen without. It'd be a risk that I'd be willing to take, and I would much rather have you know a position player as opposed to you know a third string quarterback that major. May Not like the is that he throws a pass on likely and he's not going to help you in special teams or anything but that's I mean that's a Shanahan's ways and I don't see that changing I. Wonder if that will change you know this year with mullins and method both moans is a restricted free agent, right? Yeah. MULLENS will be back. He's restricted free agent. CJ BEATHARD is directed So hopefully, this is the last we've seen of method. CONHAM. I. Hope they don't some deal but Yeah it's tough. Especially, you know when you're having. Debates over other positions trying to like squeeze some other guy and you've got who's affected taking roster spot and like you mentioned, what are the odds that he plays right? but just given. Kyle and where they draft method and what they're trying to do I think they're gonNA, they're gonNA keep him on the roster rather than just swallow their pride and cut him. So both said before the pod before we hit record, this is what we think is going to happen not necessarily what we would do if you were in charge fifty, three man roster so.

Saints keep finding ways to grind out wins, stay atop NFC

Of course, we'll start at quarterback for the Niners. His seventh straight start since making his NFL debut in a big win over the. The raiders and Cal Shanahan finally made it clear that he's not gonna play CJ Beathard anymore. This season. The team is going to be fully under the direction of quarterback. Nick Mullins deserves to be an ex players played very good. And he's gotten better as he's gone died. Yesterday was probably next best game. And especially the way finished it in that fourth quarter and not all complete a lot of balls. But just him getting rid of the ball on some really tough protection situations and being able to get that one Dante at the end, which was very tough to get off. The pass to Dante Pettis about thirty yards to keep that winning drive alive. Shanahan with more on Mullins. He's done too. Good of a job and loving a C J more playing time, but Knicks earned it, and I'm not taking them out. And hopefully, Nick Mullins will be the fulltime backup to a healthy Jimmy Garoppolo next season.

"There we go. Day. We were needing that man. This feels good on a victory Monday. Did you feel good about that affiars? Yep. A little bit Honduran a little Molins drop. Thank you. Dave, Mullins domain his poise. His police is crazy to me. It is absolutely crazy. The fact that calcium and is is talking like he and CJ Beathard around level playing field are on the same place right now for competing for that backup spot next season behind Jimmy Garoppolo. I think that's absurd. I think anybody who's watched either of these two guys play football this year Novick, Nick Mullins, we can call it a fluke, but Jimmy G got one hundred million dollar contract off of a five zero record. Nick bowlen's just made his what was that his fifth starters six career start? The guy is playing good football. I can't name one thing that he's done poorly. He makes good throws. He hangs in the pocket. He takes the hits. He commands the huddle. He gives me much more confidence as a fan than CJ Beathard ever has I genuinely feel with Nick Mullins on the field. Like, the forty Niners have an opportunity to both move the football and stay in ballgames. And I'll tell you what he doesn't have a propensity for turning the ball over. And that's not a good throw from CJ bowel. Don't do. That's happened way. Too many times with the weight Nick Mullins just played football this year. Now humor me here. This isn't going to happen. It's not really up for debate right now when you invest one hundred million dollars in a quarterback and he goes down with a knee injury. By the way, I'm thinking about the Philadelphia Eagles. We saw last night come back and get a win with none other than Nick foles. They invested a first round draft choice or an early draft choice in going to get Carson Wentz. They bring in Carson Wentz to be their starting quarterback. They bring Nick foles back to be a backup. Carson Wentz goes down with a knee injury in his second year when he's on his way to being an MVP last season. Now do the Philadelphia Eagles win the Super Bowl last year. Without Nick, foles, probably not probably not remember it got to a point down in the postseason where we got to a situation where we weren't. Just the eagles were just playing. At first it seemed like Doug Peterson was coaching them to go out and try to win and don't let Nick foles beat us. Right. If Nick foles is going to be out there. Just make sure he's not the reason the team loses. If you lose a game. Then it got to a point where they were only winning because of plays. Nick foles was making you've got to put that same sort of a weight on Nick Mullins shoulders here. I'm not saying we've got a QB controversy at all next year. But based on what we've seen Nick Mullins do with a depleted office. Now, he's had a decent offensive line. And he's played pretty well. It took three sacks yesterday with a depleted a receiving core with a depleted running game. He does not have jet. Mckinnon Matt Brita played pretty well yesterday. Jeff Wilson did the best job probably far as yards per carry though. He did put the ball on the ground early in the ball game. And then didn't see a lot of carries. He had a rough game and early on. He puts the ball in the ground that he got called for an unsportsmanlike later where he just sorta flip the football up at it hitter defender in the face that's an easy way to get a fifteen yarder. But humor me here. With the way, Nick Mullins is played football. This second half of the year. Is there any any any inkling of an early season competition next year, and I'm not saying because Jimmy Garoppolo won't be the starter. I'm making a case based on Jimmy Garoppolo. Maybe not being one hundred percent. We saw Nick foles come out this season and start the year for the for the Philadelphia Eagles, and I'm more. So asking this because I want to know what the value of Nick, Nick Mullins is right now, do we view Nick Mullins as a this is totally an anomaly, there's a reason he was an undrafted practice squad quarterback or do. We look at him and say, hey, he's beat out CJ Beathard. Even though CJ Beathard has a third rounder. They project to have a higher ceiling, and and maybe a higher floor, even the Nick Mullins. He has not played up to task. He turns the ball over. He doesn't win games. He doesn't even totally keep in games in crucial situations, he appears flustered. He's never once. Given me. What do you wanna tell me CJ methods tough? I believe you gotta be tough to take the hits that guy said to take for the last two seasons. But when he can't hang in the pocket and turn the ball over time after time, and I've got Nick Mullins out here. Making Chris throws leading a team to victory in overtime against the hated Seattle Seahawks. There's something to be said about that part of me feels like the Shanahan talk on third being on par with Mullins is just I dunno. It's just a it's just coach talk trying to keep your guys locked in stay on the same side as a guy you went out and drafted and really Beth was in a position last year that he shouldn't have had to be in Jimmy G will return the next year. And I got to believe I really do. I question what the forty Niners are going to do about Nick Mullins because I don't believe he's in some sort of elite starter in the NFL. I do believe he's garnered enough value to start or a true backup for a team somewhere else in the National Football League. If he's not going to be here. And if you can get some value for him. I'm not sure why you don't start looking at it. Come draft day, though would Jimmy be ne-. Not one hundred percent healthy that'll remains to be. Seen another forty or quarterback who had a big injury. Alex Smith, by the way, did exit the hospital this weekend. We'll talk about that a little bit later in the show. But we gotta stay on this forty nine win twenty six twenty three in overtime over the Seattle Seahawks. It only took them five years and ten consecutive losses before they finally come out and get a win a big defensive day for deforest Buckner. I thought we played really well deforest Buckner becomes the first forty Niner with double digit sack since Alden Smith did it back in two thousand twelve nineteen and a half sacks. Imagine what the forest Buckner would be doing. If he had an outside pass rush on either side of him flanked him with one guy and think about I mean, imagine what Justin Smith did for for Alden Smith and vice versa. You gotta deal with the guy on the inside and the outside and a and a tough linebacker and Fred water. Forty defense has got a nice young core. And they can get an outside pass rusher. An edge pass rusher. Are they could be dangerous for years to come? We'll continue to talk about this the forty Niners and the Seahawks. The warriors were an action on Friday night got a little little touch and go there near the end. But the warriors pulled it out against the baby. They're back in action tonight all stuff will continue to talk about. We'll hear from Cal Shanahan. We'll hear from Richard Sherman. We'll hear from big Nick Mullins. Dave hit me.

When it come back with more Richard Sherman brought up an interesting topic at the podium in the post game. And he was talking about he was really talking up Nick Mullins, and he was almost talking about like, hey, you know, now he's worth a lot and trade. What's Nick Mullins worth most to the Niners? Is he your if John Lynch came up to you? And you're a forty Niner fan and said, you know, what I don't know what I wanna do with Nick Mullins. What do you want? John Lynch to do. Nick Mullins is he your number two quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo going forward. And you're going to try to sign him to a number two type quarterback contract and have him be your second guy going forward or has he graduated beyond that as he playing now at a level where he's an NFL starter. And that may be the best route for the Niners is to is to see what they can get for him in a trademark it from one of these teams like ten vor or Washington. Or whomever is looking for a top tier quarterback Sherman made the point there's a lot of guys played today in the NFL that couldn't hold Nick Mullins jock at the quarterback spot. Do you wanna make your number two quarterback? Or do you want to move them for a pick and try to help that have that piece of the puzzle? Help you in your rebuild away.

"Credit Union studios on WWL athlete or not. But just just really bummer. So Reuben foster released by the forty Niners. They're gonna kick off the top of the hour Tampa Bay they're really banged up. I mean, they're just trying to kind of get through the season. Nick Mullins is going to be a quarterback today. But I mean this was this season that was so so high for the Niners. I mean, they won five in a row at the end of last season. They signed Jimmy Garoppolo to that extension. And mean, they were ready to kind of go toe to toe with the Rams at least. That's what the plan was. And obviously it hasn't worked out that way. So that's the big story there the giants and the eagles are coming up. This is a big game in Philly another start for ally manning, and you know, it's funny when you think about it, right? You look at that match up on paper anything. Well. Hey, I mean the eagles. They're the defending Super Bowl champs right there. Just they've had a couple of bad losses. But they're still they're still right there, and technically they are. I mean, they're they're technically because the NFC east as crumbled. They're still alive to win the division. I mean, they're right there. Okay. But it's just interesting because you've got the eagles and their season there at four and six and as bad as the giants have been right? I mean, it's bad as they've been all the negativity and should they bench ally. Manning and and the stuff off the field. I'm sorry. This stuff during games for Odell Beckham junior. When the giants are only three and seven. Right. So I mean, it just goes to show you some times, you know, our perception is not always in line with reality. Because you know, the perception is that the eagles are this this playoff team that just hasn't gotten it together yet while the giants are terrible. But the record like Bill Parcells your records is what it says, it is you are what your record says you are. And the giants are. I mean, the right there are three and seven and Odell Beckham junior was the one that said, hey, we want to we want to run the table. We wanna win eight straight to wrap up the season. And so far they've won two in a row. So that's a big game for both teams of the giants usually struggle in Philly. Manning is struggled throughout his career in Philadelphia. So we'll see how this one goes down today. Kind of. I think maybe the more intriguing match-up of the early games, right? Would be Seattle at Carolina because these are two teams that are really really in the thick of it in the wild card race. The Panthers aren't going to catch. The saints and the Seahawks aren't going to catch the Rams in a likelihood these are two teams that are that are still good. I mean, they're they're very solid. They could easily do some damage in the playoffs as wildcard team. They could they could both be sneaky because they're both supremely talented. But this is a big game for both teams. And I'm curious with with this Panthers team. You just one minute. They look like they're the class. You know, like they're right up there in the NFC. And then they had these losses where they just looked terrible. And then the Seahawks when you just when you think that they're done or that they don't have enough then they surprise you by running and Russell Wilson doing his thing. The defense is better than we thought. So I'm really curious to see how that one plays out today. Seattle at Carolina the raiders are in Baltimore. Lamar Jackson is going to make his second start bowing to pass more in the second start. So we'll see how that happens John Harbaugh and the ravens. Kind of feels like they're on the hot seat and five and five feels like the ravens have to make the playoffs for John Harbaugh to keep his job. So we'll see what kind of day they have today. And you have to wonder will Joe flacco come back at any point this season. Even if his hip gets healthy the Bengals will host the Browns the Hugh Jackson bowl. Hugh Jackson, of course, fired by the Browns. Now, an assistant for Marvin Lewis. This one is in Cincinnati Bengals are five and five. So they're they're technically still alive in the wild card race. But they just have not look good at all. And the bills are home for Jacksonville, usually doesn't go. Well, when the Florida teams had to buffalo in November. Josh Allen is back at quarterback. But the storyline and this one is Jalen Ramsey the Jags outspoken corner member part of his his tirade G Q magazine. He called the bills rookie quarterback. Josh Allen trash. Well, Josh Allen is going to be back today. And he's going to be throwing against Jalen Ramsey and Jalen Ramsey this week was asked about that whole situation and the comments that he made he refused to back down kinda was a jerk to the reporter that was asking about it. But that's what happens when you you dropped six in a row, and you go from making the AFC championship game to sitting now at three and seven with a six game losing streak. So I'm curious to see if Josh Allen has a good game coming back against the Jags defense if the Jags defense will play at all after that heartbreaking loss last week to the Steelers or Willoughby a blowout. So those are the the seven early games. Three late games. Coming up today. The cardinals and the chargers from here in LA. The chargers look like they were rolling. Look like they were right up there in the AFC. And then they lose it home to the Broncos. So that's raised some questions. Josh rosen. Of course, went to UCLA. So he'll have a lot of family and friends at this one for the cardinals the Steelers in the Broncos from Weill high the Steelers very quietly after that rough starting in September when they went one two and one don't look now. But they've won six in a row and are sitting at seven and three and clearly looked like a legit contender in the AFC. They'll take on a Broncos team that is really desperate winning here in LA over the chargers last week gave them some life. Now, can they go back home to mile high and find a way to get out of tough win over a very very good Steelers team? And you know, it's not a not a sexy matchup on paper. But you've got the dolphins and the colts late afternoon start. In indy. Colts very quietly. They've won four in a row. Andrew luck has been better than most people thought he hasn't been sacked in like forever. I mean, everybody thought that even even coming back. Andrew luck was going to get killed with that offensive line. That hasn't been the case the colts have some playmakers. They've pretty good running back depth. They have some guys that can catch the ball in a very thin league in the NFL for tight ends. They have actually a few of them that are pretty good. And then you've got the dolphins who are still kind of hanging around. And today they get Ryan tannehill back. So Brock Osweiler is done. Ryan tannehill is back from his shoulder issue. And we'll see what you know. We'll see how that plays out today. That's really big game though for both teams especially for the dolphins. You know, another loss today, and that will probably do it. But I'm intrigued to see how the colts do at home and curious to see how Ryan tannehill returns for Miami. And then tonight Sunday night football on NBC and eliminate limitation game in the NFC north the Vikings and the Packers Green Bay has yet to win game on the road. We've been waiting for them to kind of take that step forward. And it just hasn't happened yet. And so this is a big one with every every week and every loss the Mike McCarthy rumors intensify, and this is a big game tonight in for the Vikings mean is as tough as tough as it is this one's at home. You feel like this is pretty much a must-win game. Because you lose this one at home. You're you're sitting now at five five and one and that you're putting yourself in a really bad spot behind the bears who did a nice job of getting that thanksgiving win even without Mitchell Trubisky who according to reports is not a lock to return next Sunday against the giants. Apparently that shoulder issue was not just a bruise. So we'll have to we'll see what happens there with the bears but big game tonight Sunday night football on NBC, it's indoors. So we'll see. And of course, this is Aaron Rodgers return to US Bank stadium where his season ended last season with that hit with a broken collarbone. I actually did come back later, but that was pretty much it that was the end of the season. So we've got that the big news 'cause football today who's going to replace Michigan in the top four and also north. Allina has fired head coach Larry fedora. All right. Quick time out. We'll come back. We'll let you know what's going on with some of the actives and inactive and some of the other games today as we get ready for week twelve Sunday in the NFL.

Fantasy football: Why you should consider this lesser-known QB contender
"Weeks to prepare for this game against the buccaneers defense to your point field. That is allowed the most fantasy points per game two opposing quarterbacks. I believe seven different times wanna look at my notes here. Seven different quarterbacks have scored over twenty fantasy points against the buccaneers. So just if you play Tampa Bay you've got a good shot and again cow Shanahan said two weeks to prepare for this game and to sort of game plan and scheme something that takes advantage of Nick Mullen strength against Tampa's defense little daily tip. George kill Nick Mullins. Stand up on you stack for week twelve rights there. It's going to be hot and Tampa Bay this weekend. Seats are still available. Matthew for this game?

The Giants Actually Won A Game
"About the New York football giants. They actually won a game night. Football matchup against two powerhouses the giants and the forty Niners. Look pretty good about it around the pocket. Odell Beckham in the end zone Beckham had two touchdowns saquon Barkley look good look at this past there in the same. Twice in a row. Saw that one Jalen is there a little civil dark cloud. That is the giants season the silver lining is the person that ally shaking his hand. Nobody knows who it is Nick Mullins because the San Francisco forty Niners are not a good football team. They're not feel from my brother Richard Sherman. Having a play with this team this. This basically vying for top pig. The giants are talented group. Ofensive Lii in their perfect example of trying to build your squat through the skill players. Isn't probably the smartest way. Look dare division. If you were going to talk about who has the most talent just sheer touto question that USA giants have more than Philly, Washington and Dallas maybe combine. But why the last couple of seasons have all of those teams been better than them. Because he's not that good. The line is not that good the substance the lines, correct? And so for that. I'm not surprised clearly that Dale TD's saquon Barkley terrific sterling shepherd caught the game winning touchdown. But we know what's going to happen. Right. You know, it's gonna happen. Right. Cannot cannot break. Some news breaks news right now, what's gonna happen here. As a news happened bench. La. For the guy that ran over the cop. Big bench. Eli ran away just in want to do it. Because that guy had just gotten trouble have been playing attention for national media consumption. He's been in trouble with the law. Couple of times for some reason. We just don't talk about it. So I think later in this year sued they dream of Alah struggling he my stomach coming out of the tunnel. They bench. We know what's going to happen. This is last year allies last year in the National Football League. No, he's a man play as long as he wants to play in a different uniform next year. Yes, if he wants to play, well, I know a team that needs a quarterback Buffalo

Odell Beckham was the leading receiver four receptions, seventy three yards two touchdowns. He also drew a pass interference call on that final drive. That was big as well in the span of five plays. There were four penalties called between. Both the giants and the Niners on the giants. Final possession. So it was a very wacky. Final drive. But all that counts is the fact that the giants gone into the end zone. Everyone was relatively quiet for the entirety of these game until he did all of his damage pretty much on that final drive. He ended up with four catches for forty six yards. So we didn't really see much of the spreading of the wealth mentality from ally. Manning Odell Beckham was targeted eleven times. Everybody else five or less times on the Niners side, Nick Mullins who was coming. Off a career outing in just his first career start in which he put up numbers that very few quarterbacks can say they even toyed with in their NFL debuts he had completed sixteen of his twenty two passes for over two hundred sixty yards. Three touchdowns had a highest passing rating of one hundred thirty one point nine that was the highest passer rating by a player in his NFL debut since one thousand nine hundred well, the giants put them into top positions did get an awful lot of pressure on them throughout the ninety finished twenty seven to thirty nine for two hundred fifty yards touchdown pass to his running back mad Brita, and he was picked off twice by BJ goods and on the ground. Niners came in with the fourth best rushing attack of the NFL and they finished just around their season average, which is one hundred thirty five they got one twenty four on the ground including a rushing touchdown on twenty nine attempts. Mad Brita led the way with seventeen for one hundred one yards and two touchdown in terms of their receiving core. George kendall. No surprise there. Tight end led the way with nine catches for eighty. Eighty three yards marquees Goodwin. Their vertical threat was the leading wide receiver with four receptions for sixty nine yards. Both of these teams had allowed. Thirty one sacks each entering this contest ally. Manning was sacked once that came in the second half. It was a sack that was split between Dakota Watson and deforest Buckner to the top Niners defensive linemen. And no sacks recorded for the giants at all. So neither team was successful in terms of applying pressure. And that was why both quarterbacks are the most most part had an opportunity to throw down the field. Nick Mullins really surveyed the middle of the field. That's where he made most of his plays at Eli manning took some chances down the field. What could have been a big back breaker play was when he missed Odell Beckham in the second half. When Odell Beckham broke through was wide open deep down the left sideline manning under through that ball. But they were fortunate enough that they made the necessary defensive stops got another possession back in Eli manning got. Them into the end zone. The injury report brought to you by Hackensack University Medical Center, the hometown hospital of the New York Giants and the good news. Is Pat Shurmur mentioned in his post game press conference. There is no injuries to report the giants or the healthiest they've been all season long, and they should be when you're coming off a buying. You've had well over a week to recover and recuperate BJ. Goodson got shaken up at one point in this game. But he did return and interestingly had no interceptions in his career entering this game winds up to and this is the third time. The giants did not have a turnover and they've won two of those three games. That's certainly not a surprise that tends to be the trend in the National Football League. But they were almost in a position where they would have won the turnover battle and not be on the right side of this contest until July. Manning got them in the end zone.

"Team. Your giants quarterback. Eli manning talking with our own Jim gray and anticipation of Monday night football hear on Westwood One. We continue here getting ready for a week number ten along side hall of Famer Kurt Warner, Scott Graham, and Kurt those giants. Take on the San Francisco forty Niners. Each of these teams has lost seven games for the giants. Coming off a bye week at one in seven all kinds of questions about ally. Manning, you know, he was asked by Jim what he has to prove this team. I think is going to find out a lot about who they are for two thousand nineteen at the end of two thousand eighteen I think, you're right. It is that you know, obviously, the season from a playoff standpoint is is pretty much over for the giants. But as Eli was saying still a lot to prove whether it's him or this entire team. And we came in thinking all these weapons this team has a chance to get back to what they were a few years ago. And it just hasn't worked out for them. And then you got to San Francisco team that again a team that doesn't look right now. Like we thought they were going to look at the beginning of the year and specifically without the quarterback. Jimmy garoppolo. But Nick Mullins came in and his debut on Thursday night football and had a huge performance and instilled a little bit of life in the San Francisco team. So we're gonna find out a lot about both of these organizations. Washington Redskins lost to Atlanta last week and more importantly, lost pieces of their offensive line. So now five and three still very much in the thick of the NFC east race. They go to Tampa Bay to take on a buccaneers team that well, they showed a little bit of fits magic last week in Carolina. But the defense still continues to struggle Tampa Bay comes into three and five. Well, yeah. The Tampa Bay team would fits at the helm what they've done all year score points. So you have to assume they're going to score points. If nothing else even though their defense is struggling and this Washington team, the problem with them is they struggled to score points is they've won games by dominating defensively and with their offensive line and running the football. And you mentioned a number of banged up players now in the offense of line. They're still ahead in their division. But you start to worry about this team. Because you're not sure if they can win if they don't have their horses in so Alex Smith played some good football. But I think he's going to have to carry this team for a couple of weeks. Buffalo Bills go to the Meadowlands to take on the New York Jets New York after their loss in Miami last week now at three and six they've been offensively challenged and they're going to be more. So without Sam darnold in a quarterback this week the Buffalo Bills at two and seven put up nine points last week, Kurt they have been the poster child of offense challenged. Yeah. This is this is going to be an interesting game. Both teams are reeling a little bit. We know about all the the quarterback issues with buffalo. And unfortunately has a look the same for the jets that they've really struggled as recently a putting anything together. So he got to believe this is going to be a defensive struggle in whichever offense can make a couple of big plays. Probably get out of there with a win..

"This is Xtra sports thirteen hundred. So Nick Mullins will indeed start for the San Francisco forty Niners on Monday night when they host the New York. Giants Mullen played very well in prime time last Thursday against the raiders might God. He's twelve years old. If you're watching on TV. He looks younger than you probably. I'm thirty three. So, but you look really young. That's that's that's the point. Anyway. The George Kitto passed along a story on where where was it was this on the McAfee podcast? What was he on kindle was do what was he doing? Was it press conference? Okay. Kiddo said that that Kyle Shanahan the coach of the team and Nick Mullins communicated during the game against the raiders and Mullins got in the play and Shanahan was talking. And apparently apparently Mullins had Shanahan to shut up. So Mullins could tell the other players what the play was Chris have you experienced anything like that? During your time in football. What have I explained my head coach Jon Gruden first of all, you know, coaches like Jon Gruden and Kyle Shanahan their psychos. And I mean that in a good way like psychos obsessive compulsive wanting to know every little detail. Oh, gosh. I don't know if you said the play, but I Jon Gruden used to drive me absolutely mad when he would be in my ear. I'd be in the huddle trying to tell one of our plays which was about like Nino nine paragraphs long. And he wants me to remind the other players in the huddle. Do this do that do this? I can't even hear myself talk. You can go. Back and look at like game film or game footage on TV of me buying quarterback. And I'm literally in the huddle like waving my hand behind me like shut up. I can't hear myself talk. I can't hear anything. You know, you try to say this you too. Okay. When you get into a huddle, and you go, okay, guys. Here we go. We're going to gonna we're going to run west right slot. Z counter orbits, seventy two z. Bingo. You split cannon. Spider man, spider, two banana, apple doing hammer. Apple three. Mr. brainiac lawyer guy, can you do that? What was that play for say it back to me spider to why banana? Yeah. Now that was that was a play as well. But yes, there are times where these coaches are just so over obsessive compulsive and oh gosh. I I hope you heard it. Let me say it again. Hey, I heard it dummy. Okay. You told me the play nine million times during the week Gruden used to make me get up in front of the quarterback room and repeat plays and say them to make sure I was saying them clearly in the huddle, I refuse to believe that it has to be that complicated. There's only eleven guys. Right. You're not barking out orders for one hundred fifty people. I think some of these coaches dislike it to be complicated because it adds to the mystique that they're great coaches. All right Morpeth library..

"It out as always you can reach us on social media where on Twitter calling shots NBC Facebook calling shots NBC Instagram calling shots NBC by the phone eight five five three two three four NBC eight five five three two three four six two two before we go to Jeff Biggs actually Brett can we just play I want? I want to hear the Nick Mullins sounds Nick ball. Let me just tell you the story really fast. In case you missed it last night. And we're like many other people thought the game would be terrible. It was Niners raiders Nick Mullins, the kid that comes out of southern miss and realistically, I don't know anybody the believed he could do what he did last night. Throws three touchdowns helps the team get a victory and here he was after just kind kinda kind of rehashing what his beliefs were coming in think, I'm here for a reason. And it was my opera. Charity to prove that I can play. Talked about that a couple of times since I've been here and so a little bit. But the biggest thing is just you know, attack your job and worry about what matters and what word or what mattered most tonight was the team and how we played they played. Well, he played well raiders or just a really really bad football team going to bring in Jeff big poll question to do we got a lot of stuff to do bigs. When you watch that game last night. What what the wasn't more about Nick Mullins? Or is it more about the raiders to you? Both. And and I'm not saying that to to avoid the question of waffle. There was a little antidote. The Troy Aikman threw in that. I thought was really cool. He slipped in that apparently like last year after every single game. After after the games were done that Nick Mullins would go onto the field and run the plays himself by himself. So he could familiarize himself with Kyle Shanahan's offense that told me a lot. I mean, that's that's pretty cool. Didn't think about it? So this guy was yeah. So this is clearly prepared. I mean, he was clearly prepared and ready to seize the moment, and I love that. I think that's awesome. I don't wanna take that away from him. You know, what I thought I thought it was cool to in the post game. He's sitting there next or Kurt Warner and Brett farve calls in and talks to him. Southern miss grad both of them and Kurt Warner than asks. Remember exactly what the question was. But it was something to the effect of you know, I was in your situation where I was waiting for my chance. Also, how were you prepared for it? I can't even imagine what that must have been for kid like Nick Mullins to to look next to him and see hall of Famer Kurt Warner who had a similar beginning to him. And then you sit there, and you wonder like, hey, could I reached that sort of? Yeah. Yeah. Wow. That's just a just a great moment. And I hope it continues for him. It's a great story. Yeah. I mean, I don't know if it continues in San Francisco. I don't mean garoppolos the, dude. But some someone had texted me all quarterback controversy, no quarterback controversy at all. But let's say for argument's sake. Not that the Niners start winning games. But what if Nick Mullins looks like a starting quarterback in the NFL, and they can trade them. Right. Yup. Absolutely. Man. I'm totally putting the horse before the card or the cart before the horse or whatever it is. But in giants and Jaguars and dolphins. And there's going to be there's a window there. Sure. They need some quarterback. Aren't I want to whip around the NFL with you? But first we got to come up with a poll question. What do you want to do? All right. Well, let's start there. What was the biggest Thursday night football storyline? Mullins dominating the raiders continued to stink or that. That was the Thursday night game. Unfortunately, it's probably raiders up. And that's and that I don't I don't like it. I want it to be Nick Molin Mullins. I want us to be talked about I want I want I want that to be the story. But it's probably raider stink. I've look I I'm just surprised Keith just I'll shut up with this that in this day and age when all players know that everything they do is on videotape that that we saw that kind of a performance that was honestly, probably the one of the worst NFL professional games I've ever seen. No, let's not shut up on that. Let's continue along. So. Like. They were terrible. And I don't know if it will. I mean, I jokingly said this it looked like Derek Carr. Did something wrong to the offensive line. Like, I don't know he he's dating one of their sisters or their moms or something like that. And they're mad at him. They were eight he was under fire the entire game. Yeah. He was under fire. I mean, the defense I think high school team could have done better at least tried to try to schematically seriously. I mean, it was unbelievable. How how bad the I I've never seen an NFL team at that level play so poorly on defensive and they didn't even try. They didn't want to be there. And it looks like the team as a whole has completely checked out on Gruden and they're waiting to see you know, who's going to be left after the season. And all this stuff with Derek Carr about the. Teammates questioning whether or not he cried and all that garbage. It I'm telling you, it's really ugly. It's uncomfortable. I mean, it it's really bad. Kind of changes. Do you think you're going to happen in the off season? I I mean, I grew we go anywhere. But I think that there could be like wholesale changes in that team. That whole roster is going to be gutted. I think so any of the poll question you wanna go with that one? How about here we go? How about this one which which NFL game? Are you most excited to see this weekend? Or is that too easy? You know, it's not I don't know. If we go with that one. You know, this can lead us. All right. You know, what that'll lead us into a conversation. But did you have another one or that other was also one who's to blame for the Lakers? Slow start Luke Walton magic and Pelinka in the front office the players or no one, relax. I mean, I kind of feel no one, relax. They. So what's three and five? I don't think. I don't know how you build that kind of chemistry right away. And they've lost a few close games. And it's not a perfectly constructed roster. Anyway. So in order, I go, no one, relax. I go. Magic pelinka. I go players. I think Luke Walton is the fourth in that. Yeah. I'm with you know, what let's go with the first one. You know, what I'm intrigued would just kind of feel out people about the raiders and Mullen. So we'll throw that one up on Twitter. Calling shots NBC. We'll do that one. All right. So big you stay with me right now. Let's let's do some NFL talk. Let's to kind of break down some of these games as we do each and every Friday, and I'm going to start. Actually, I'm going to go backwards this time we normally go from one o'clock games forward. I wanna go backwards titans. Cowboys we just had DeMarcus Lawrence on with us about fifteen minutes ago. How much of a must win is this for three and four tightens three and four Cowboys. I think it's a must win for both. Keith. I really do. I mean big picture. This is one of those games that I think both feel like they at least have a shot to win. But clearly more. So for the Cowboys at home, right? I mean, there are three no at home, and they've been a little different on the road Luebbe better at home. But you've got to take. Take care of business. And you know this titans team. They they look pretty good last time they played before the by in London looked better. They they came up short. They lost that game. Because they missed the two point try against the chargers, but they played better in the second half of that game. So like we've been saying all season long can that that titans offense get off the ground. But what about the Cowboys? And what about Amari Cooper? I can't wait to see that Sunday night football Packers and patriots. I don't know. If you like this is one of those games. You can't miss because unless they meet in the Super Bowl, it's probably the last time than Aaron Rodgers Tom Brady will be on the field together playing against each other. I'm gonna guess in theory, they could be in the Pro Bowl together. But unless they played through bowl, this is it you've got Aaron Rodgers who many people considered maybe the most talented quarterback generation and Tom Brady, probably the greatest of this generation. Obviously locked gluten on this one. Who did you? I'll ask you this who do you like better Rogers are Brady? I just slight edge to Brady just a slight edge. Just because he's so he's been so consistent new so long five championships. Tough to tough argue that and getting it done in the big game Stein always had some help. And maybe you could say that Aaron Rodgers hasn't had the same help. But just a slight edge. You know, what's interesting to me. Keith we've seen number one. I can't believe this is just the second time ever. They're going to go head to head. That's just shocking when you think about it. But I think to me the real x factor for Sunday night is going to be the Packers defense because we saw the patriots defense. They did enough to bend. But not break when they when they face the, Patrick, Mahomes and the chiefs, right? So they're Roger seems to be healthier. I think the big x factor is this Packers defense after a deflating loss against the Rams after that special teams, gaffe know, chemic- come out with that same intensity Sunday night and play that play that way against the patriots and gets turnovers. The other top game. I would say is Rams in saints eight no LA six in one New Orleans New Orleans one of the hottest team in the NFL since week number one Rams are the hottest team in the NFL yet to lose only undefeated team. You know, it's interesting Todd Gurley is almost singlehandedly winning people their fantasy football leagues as we stand. Right now yourself included. Yes, sir. I mean, I got lucky I got the first pick. I mean when I can really screw that one up. I will have to order matters. Does it does? I I did get a little lucky with that. But the saints actually have a good run defense. Is there any chance in your mind that Todd Gurley not get stopped but slow down on Sunday? I think it's possible. Sure. I mean a couple of things number one these two teams met last season. So they know each other a little bit. It's not like, it's a total surprise. But I think the other misnomer out there is that you know, the saints or this dominant home team in the Superdome. And that's just not the case. I think it was a decade ago when they won the Super Bowl. But there you can make the case that they play a little better sometimes on the road than they do at home. So I don't think I I think a lot of people think this is a lock for the saints. But I think the Rams have a really good chance. I think this is a great opportunity for them to crank it up on the road and get it done. All right. I'll give you the chance. Give me one game. That we haven't spoken about yet. So we didn't we did those late games? Gimme another game that you're looking forward to and why. You know? I'm actually looking forward to the chargers and the Seahawks in Seattle only because you know, the chargers are kind of this is outside team in the AFC that nobody really gives a chance to outside of you know, you've got the chiefs and the patriots and and pretty much that's a wrap, but they're just intriguing because they're playing better..

Not argue with great topic Mon man take advantage of this the raiders resting their starters for twenty twenty next to some of the games this weekend. Louis Steelers ravens is the key in this rivalry game this weekend. It's going to be about Joe flacco playing the first matchup when it's also going to be about the Steelers played better in the secondary. Not giving up too many big play. Then when the other side of the ball going to be about can Ben Rothlisberger handle ravens, deepest that that's gonna come and bring the house against it. And they are masters at turning the ball over. It's going to be on Connor continue the miraculous absolutely spectacular two thousand eighteen that he's having and it'll beyond the ball.

The big plays all came from the enormous game a very competitive division in that AFC north the next game lions Vikings Jonathan Vilma in big one in the. NFC north the Kate. Yeah. The keys the run game for the lion. They have been very very good running the ball when they're doing. Well, they don't have Kate anymore. But Matt Patricia struggle keeping that run game going against the Seahawks last week the the run game down and law. So they figure out how to run the ball. Vikings defense if they can have a chance to win if they don't it could be Vikings member the lines traded away. Go take this week, which was interesting move for a team coming up one bad loss. But certainly still in the playoff picture to some degree. Let's go to the next game here. Louis Riddick Chaves will face the Browns in Cleveland. Let me point out ninety six percent of the public money is on Kansas City. That's an indication. You look the other way. What do you think of this one here for Baker Mayfield? It's gonna be what kind of does he show now that they have wholesale changes in Cleveland? Now, you know, I guess they have all the problems that they have had so far in Baker better. We're gonna see we just wanna see make some. Incremental improvement not turning the ball over getting the ball out of his hands quickly. Like he so early on when he started playing and playing with more competence. And then for the chiefs is going to be about batch homes in the rest of the Kansas City Chiefs not having a letdown in a game. Whereas you already alluded to everyone expects them a win. When everyone expected to win. Don't correct. This would be stunner. But if you look at maybe not Jonathan chargers Seahawks. What do you have? Well, I have the Seahawks fans gotten a lot better over the past four. We finally playing defense. We remember the legion the boom they're playing. This is Hugh.

"Fifty-seven man. It's gonna be a great weekend of football in college. In pros, some Titanic match-ups coming up this weekend. The saints in the Rams going to battle for NFC supremacy on the other side, you've got the patriots going toe to toe with Aaron Rodgers who just took that Rams team down to the wire we've been able to rehash July football debate about the two great quarterbacks that are going to be in that game. And then a college football. You've got a one vs. Three matchup down in Louisiana as Alabama's gonna travel. The death valley at night got a top ten matchup in the SEC. It's already going to determine one of those divisions this weekend. And yet last night, we got force-fed some of the worst football on planet earth. Now, our misfortune ends up being the game. And what could be a career maker for one guy because last night. San Francisco forty Niners dispatch the Oakland Raiders thirty four to three on Thursday night football. And while it was not a game that was inherently interesting future a lot of defensive prowess or really anything of note. It was a game that took place between Derek Carr in Nick Mullins, which ends up being the story of this one. And if you're wondering, I'm a pretty big football fan. I don't think I've ever heard of Nick Mullins before you would be correct in your assessment. Most of us had not heard of Nick Mullins before the coming days. Nick Mullins e twenty seventeen undrafted free agent out of southern miss. Started his day off. So he gets the news that he's going to start. Very late in the game. Thursday night. Should say Friday morning. He started off his day by receiving a good luck tax from fellow southern miss golden eagle Brett farve. Now, you have to imagine that was the first of many text messages for him. But the one that was going to be the most guys getting ready to make his first NFL start on a prime time game against the Oakland Raiders. And I don't care who you are as an underrated free agent myself. This is a hell of a position it's a career maker break time moment and Nick Mullins the San Francisco forty Niners starting quarterback. Yes. You get to say that today. Nick Mullins soak it in talked about the feeling of knowing he was going to get the start last night. I mean, the feeling obviously knowing that you're gonna start put some more emphasis on it. I guess you could say preparation stayed pretty consistent. Just studied the plan. Always going to be ready when my name was called, and it was called. And so just tried to do the best that I could. And the team did the best that we could you know, he played great sound football three phases of the game. I last Michael junior here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Man already has the stock quarterback answers down, Pat. He's been reading from the handbook he's been sitting there. Jimmy Garoppolo CJ Beathard. You've got all these guys in front of you CJ Beathard was out last night with a I believe a wrist injury that actually gave him trouble gripping the football. Which is the reason Nick Mullins is getting the start to begin with. And he's been sitting there soaking up all of this stock very vanilla quarterback answer. Just in case. He finally got to this moment had to get up in the post game press conference. But do did it last night. Three touchdown passes in his NFL debut reading the forty Niners to a season high thirty four points. In that route the first player in forty Niners history to throw three touchdown passes and his team debut this according to you Elias sports bureau, and he's just a fourth quarterback ever to throw for three touchdown passes in his first NFL game over the last twenty five seasons. Joining listen to these names the for the quarterbacks to throw for three touchdown passes in their first NFL game in the last twenty five years the last twenty five years we've seen some damn good quarterbacks. Come and go in this league. The four quarterbacks three touchdown passes in their first career games in the last twenty five seasons. Mark Bolger in two thousand two Ryan Fitzpatrick in two thousand five my God in heaven, Marcus mariota in two thousand fifteen to actually through four and Nick Mullins in two thousand eighteen. And this is the kind of game. I for this game ends up being a lot more about our perception to the raiders the forty Niners. Best days are ahead of them. They're young quarterback of the future is injured playing this year. So, unfortunately, we're not really going to pay much attention last night ends up being more about jockeying for draft position as you go towards this spring. But for Nick Boland's, you can make a career off that what happened last night for Nick Mullins can be enough to keep him bouncing around the league for a few few more years than undrafted free agent would have otherwise. And that's the reality. That kid me a lot of money last night, and you got to be happy and signing bonus as an undrafted free agent zero dollars and zero sense. And I mean that is not undrafted free agents. You know, I got a few. I got a few thousand dollars signing bonus. Your some guys you'll see get ten twenty thousand dollars that are priority free agents. Nick Mullins got zero dollars zero cents. He was not supposed to make it. Last night was not supposed to happen. Last night. Was exactly what we're supposed to happen for the raiders though. This is what they have been trending towards this. Is what they have been trying to do. This is what happens when you are selling off parts at rapid pace, Jon Gruden aka the value. God. Has been trying to strip this thing down and build it back up yesterday. Took an interesting turn some sitting around. And we all we have this interview the Jon Gruden did. With FOX on Wednesday. And listen just listen to what Jon Gruden says. And we'll digest it together. If you haven't heard this before this is Jon Gruden doing an interview with FOX from Wednesday talking about players wanting to be Oakland, Raiders, I got a cell phone just like you and everybody else I get a lot of phone calls from people that are dying to Colin player. I'm just telling you they're dying to play for the raiders to have salary cap space and have a chance to talk to the people that you really want to wear the silver and black the guys you really want to wear the silver black represent the state. That's exciting. Versus last here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app may Jon Gruden seems like he's going out of his way to make sure the guys that are on this current raiders roster know that he doesn't like them. Like, we hear all the time about coaches using the media to send a message to guys you better. Hope the Jon Gruden is the exact opposite that there is some sort of other worldly show of support going on behind closed doors, but this grown man football's the NFL, you don't have to go out to coddle anybody. But at the same time, these guys are smart, they see and know their coach came from the media understands the media for the most part and to go out there and say this and know that it's going to get back to that locker room in this way. I can't I can't wrap my head around this Jon Gruden. We know he's a media guy for the last number of years, but as a football player and a football football coach, I should say for a long time. This is baffling that is baffling because we're gonna we heard a lot last night about this raiders team quitting on Jon Gruden and the things that come in that territory when you're losing. And when you're trending this. Sway? And when the tanking word keeps getting thrown around over and over again, all of that becomes natural in a certain way for this group. But hearing this is Jon Gruden it seems like he's inviting it because what does this tell every player on this team? But you're probably not in our future plans either. We've sold off the best guys on our team to remind you in a very almost patriot esque way that you don't matter in our grand plans at this point. Now quitting is a whole other thing. Darren Woodson are ESPN NFL analyst on sportscenter yesterday and said that's not what's happening with this raiders group there and say watch film and say Gaza quitting on because he's a professional. These guys are out there again, they're not just playing for John grooten. They're playing for everyone else. That's going to be watching them throughout the process. It's it's about the lack of personnel at they have they're going through injuries. And they don't have any dynamic player. Zubin that are out there making big plays football team. And today they went out there. And like they played all all these last couple of years dysfunctional with a lack of personnel. And this is what happened. And I tell you what Darren is right in this sense. You're always cognizant, especially the guys that make up the meat of the bell curve of this roster that you're going to likely be playing or season somewhere else in any given year to begin with. And you're always cognizant that thirty one other teams are going to see this. But what he said there is true at this point. I can't speak to every player on that teams relationship with Jon Gruden again. Maybe it looks better behind closed doors. But if I'm a player hearing, these things in the media, I can tell you I'm probably not playing for Jon Gruden that much can be sure I will go out there. And like we have happened with all losing teams. You put it on the line for your family, your reputation what you're trying to do furthering your place in this league. But playing for a coaches something for a lot of guys goes out the window at this level to begin with. But when you hear that vote of confidence, and I say that with the utmost. Sarcasm built into that font for you guys that makes it pretty easy to say. Well, I'm definitely not playing for that guy..

"Oh, goodness. Not battle the bay area. One of the worst matchups we will ever see for prime time game in the NFL. This is what FOX paid four hundred million dollars for you pay four hundred million dollars for the rights to broadcast the one in six raiders at the one in seven San Francisco forty Niners with their quarterback. Some dude named Nick Mullins. Nick Mullins from southern miss. Yes. The Homer Brett farve and undrafted rookie free agent last year. And you're telling me Matt Barkley get signed by buffalo. Nick Mullins is out there. What's going on here? Your tongue who needs Colin Kaepernick when you have Nick Mullins fourteen of nine thousand nine hundred forty three yards three touchdowns against an incredible raiders defense with Khalil Mack. Oh, that's right. They got rid of them. You're not watching Jon Gruden. I gotta do this. I have to I never thought. Jon Gruden was a good coach. Yes. As me moving the Mike, and it's really weird noise. So Jon Gruden I never thought was a great coach anyway. Jon Gruden took a. Tampa Bay Buccaneers team. That was already made right is ready made for success. By the end. They'll have what four hall of fame defensive players on that team. Right. What what sap? Derrick Brooks is a hall of Famer that's to John Lynch will get in at some point and Rondi Barbara might sneak in at some point as well. So I have at least four hall of famers on that defense Nuff said and from that point on of winning a Super Bowl his first year in Tampa Bay. They just got progressively worse. And at the end when he got fired they stunk. He never developed a quarterback, but somehow Jon Gruden some sort of a ways and on ESPN he would do that quarterback class. And he would have that. College players sitting there, you see what would you do in this situation when the defense does now like, John what the hell do, you know about quarterback's name a quarterback you developed in the NFL? I'm waiting looking at my clock. Who what where what quarterback did you develop Sean, gang? Really? Who am I missing here? But yet he some experts sitting there breaking down film telling the Carson Wentz is the world what to do. Meanwhile, you wonder is there buyer's remorse when it comes to Jon Gruden if you're the raiders Mark Davis will never admit it. But this is why you don't tenure contracts. You don't give it in baseball. You don't give it in any sport. And you certainly don't give it to a coach don't you get that feeling that John gruden's a little too comfortable like you can make these moves doesn't really matter. He knows they stink this year honesty's probably tanking games. Anyway, because reality is he'd rather have high draft picks. And you know, what I think he takes a quarterback anyway and tries to get rid of Derek Carr. He wants all his own guys there. Jon Gruden to be such an ego maniac. He just wants all his own guys. When you give a guy ten years, guess what? That's two rebuilds usually get five years. Right. Okay. Well, the first five don't go. So well, then what? Well, you saw five years of fifty million dollars on that contract. You're not get rid of Jon Gruden paying Gruner just go away. Right. Here's fifty mil. John go away. Go back to the broadcast booth. Not happening. And then he comes out today with something that's so ridiculously dumb. I don't even know where he gets this. Right. I really don't know where he gets his material. Like, he's he told me he's like the bad stand up comic who gets up there and thinks they're funny, and they laughed at their own jokes. And no one else is laughing Sean you would relate. I mean, you wanna do stand up. Right. And you try some humor on me. And I'm never really that. I mean, it's not really that funny. And I always keep telling you, wait, buddy. You just wait. You got a lot of improvement to do. Do you have tenure deal to get better? Took an eight year deal. Yeah. He took an Halloween candy again chocolate. Yes. Scott was kind enough to leave the Hershey bars. Here you took all the good stuff like the cat. And the reese's peanut butter cups. You know, what though I think her? She's just great. I do think. Hurry, left him for a reason them. Yeah. But they're the most underrated candy out there. That's just pure chocolate. You don't get better than just pure chocolate. Right. Consisted. Great. You know, what you get you do? But for free, you'll take and he could have left the the mounds, and I'll enjoys right you'd be really complaining. You're smiling all happy with chocolate all of your lips wannabe that you'd be thrown out or give it to somebody else in the building. So Gruden comes out, Sean. This is hilarious. He claims, right? He claims that he's getting phone calls from players that are quote dying to go play for the raiders. Really? They're dying to go play for the raiders. So what he's saying is, quote, I got a cell phone just like you and everybody else I get a lot of phone calls from people that are dying come play here. I'm just telling you they're dying to play for the raiders and deaf salary cap space and have a chance to talk to the people that you really want to wear the silver and black the guys you really want to wear the silver and black and represent this team. That's exciting. John. People are dying to go anywhere. If the money's right in the NFL careers are so short they're dying to go to Siberia, if they get offered more money for some Russian team than the raiders. When's the last time the raiders were paying people up the wazoo not named Derek Carr? Think about that people are dying to go to the raiders after the raiders got rid of their best player. And by the way, Khalil Mack is ten times better than Derek Carr. All right. It's not like, you know, Derek Carr in Khalil Mack are the two best. No clawbacks. The best player was the best player on the raiders by a mile. Maybe Derek Carr was second. But there's a big gap between Khalil Mack, and Derek Carr Madera cars, but awful. He had a couple of good years and everybody including myself thought man, this guy is going to be an elite quarterback. What a second round steel, you know, what he's awful. He was average last year, and he's below average this year, and you know, Gruden doesn't like them. Okay. No one is banging down the door to go play for the raiders. There's an automatic team. Well, I guess people want to go play Vegas, right? Y I mean, no state income tax. It's vegas. Getting a lot of trouble after games. Pick your club pick your vice right after a Sunday game in Vegas. Hey, you wanna go gamble gamble? You wanted to go to the nudie Bargo the nudie bar, you want to go to a high end restaurant and overpay by all means pick from like, Wolfgang, Puck's and emeralds and all the other overpriced chefs places, right? I guess maybe people want to go play in Vegas. Why not I wouldn't? I be like began. But you think it matters. To me. It's all about the money. Right. That's what players care about. It's all about the money. And in the end, Mark Davis hasn't shown one iota that he wants to spend a lot of money. So the comes down to bidding wars between teams that have money. You think the raiders are going to go out there and outbid people? They've got rid of players because they don't wanna pay these contracts. You're telling me now, Jon Gruden that people are banging down your door in your cell phone to go play for the raiders at some point because you have salary cap room that you're gonna they're going to go out and spend it, hey, when they're paying you ten mil your Chucky, guess what they're not going to go out there and pay authors that much money. Boy. Did he take the wrong job? If he thinks he's got some blank check to go throughout their people. Right. How do you value? It properly though this year. They're obviously rebuilding three first round picks in next year's draft. To gesture. Yup. Gruden did a great job a job getting a first round pick from Dallas. You would agree with least slipper. Yes. Khalil mack. It is what it is. I think for the bears was worth the trade. Absolutely. But they did get draft picks. They have three first round picks coming up this season. This this draft. There's no one on this team. They shouldn't be better than one six. There's no one on the team. So how can you properly evaluate Jon Gruden his second stint in the NFL? No. I think you can't. So he's basing it on his first did not what you're doing on it or no you can't base in evaluation on John Gruener wins losses. You're right. There's not a lot of talent. I think what you can base and evaluation in Jon Gruden on is his response to players. His player personnel. Moves has been good. I don't think the Khalil Mack deal. Was that good me in the end? They they couldn't pay him. They couldn't pay. Well, they could. That's the problem. They don't wanna pay because they don't have the cash apparently to pay right, which is a whole problem. Do you think about it? What NFL owner doesn't have cash mean? The NFL teams are worth a fortune. You know, you just the Browns are worth a fortune. The bills are worth every NFL team for the fortune. Right. If you can't afford to pay Khalil Mack. Maybe shouldn't be owning a team moving to Vegas, right? Yeah. They get the new stadium. They hope to get more revenue all that. But here's the problem though. I think the arrogance Jon Gruden I think the whole Chucky routine from the first time around I think there's an issue there. What I mean by that is I think Jon Gruden hasn't understood that he's got to kind of lighten himself up here from his first in the NFL because from nine years to now, it's a different story right players today. Don't take the same punishment players back. Then took these millennials today aren't going to take the abuse. They don't wanna be yelled at by Jon Gruden. They don't want Jon Gruden getting all red in the face at them. They don't care. They don't care about John gruden's one Super Bowl win means nothing to me the way that I evaluate Jon Gruden is. How is he? Players. How's he handling adversity of eighteen that's one in six, and I don't think when you have a whole team seemingly disgruntled with the guy saying that, hey, you know, what why are we finding out about, you know, one of our best players being traded from the media. Not you. I don't think he's done a good job. Welcome to two thousand eighteen. But that's the thing. You have to understand how to get over it. They players complain about every. But that's the problem. If they're not winning. They're gonna complain. But they'll check out what you you set it on the show before those players that are complaining they're not going to be there. Anyway. So what does he care, but they check out? That's the problem you out. Why wouldn't you check out there? He building they're building. It's painful, I get it. You can't valuate Jon Gruden based on this season. Okay. So how many years before you evaluate John groom to evaluate next year? Yeah. The draft picks Vegas. Absolutely. There's there's the issue. I have a Gruden. I'm not convinced. He's going to be able to pick the right guys. Right. He has no confidence. Well, not only that. I just don't don't have confidence that you could develop the players that that he draft. So that's my concern. But as far as this season seven games in seven and a half games in. How could you have properly evaluate them based on this team can see by the way, people don't like their car supposedly in the locker room? Yeah..

Said part of the sports update the backup to the backup quarterback in San Francisco. Nick mullins. He's already gotten verified on Twitter in the space of what two plus quarters. The only thing outside of that. That's pretty funny. The only thing the raiders have had an advantage tonight. So far is that unlike the forty Niners in which their kicker to start the game put the ball in the wrong yard line. That's how this game got started. At least the Oakland Raiders kicker. Put the ball on the right yard line. They kick off the second half. So there's that I know baby steps some kind of progress. But at least you can say at least feel goal kicker was better than your field goal kicker when it came to starting a half of an NFL football game. It's the little things, Freddie, like a little beatdown that keeps getting bigger and bigger and bigger, but that press conference, it'd be interesting, but Jon Gruden has to say about that. But good on the forty Niners. Also good on Nick Mullins being verified on Twitter in the space of two quarters fifteen to twenty two hundred sixty yards and three touchdowns. Forty-nine sleep the raiders thirty one two three three. Oh, eight to play in the third quarter UCF in temple UCF leaning forty two to thirty four.
