"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

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..

"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..
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.
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.

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.

So, they'll get used to it, you know, as long as you win games nothing else really does matter. I mean, obviously when you look at them from an analyst standpoint, you're wondering when they get into that wage work or if an office desk or twenty one point early or three touchdowns. Can we score 28 to 30 points which they have? I think they get the bulk. Is it put up 30 points or the phone number? To go to Indiana fell but like you said pay you and you watch that defense, they're extremely good and they got one thing that a lot of good teams and teams that have good success with the formula of the defense wins games. They create chaos with a quarterback and they speed up the offense is clogged which creates turnovers. So that defense to me on film look up to dominate not only been six weeks, but that's secondary to find the involved the defense side how good they've been playing is that secondary is playing really well also, so so, you know and thought we'd love to say there's no pictures on the scorecard.

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.

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.

"Anything get rid of this guy. He's a bum. That's a Philadelphia is doing top fifteen about Nick foles. I I would never even shake him with somebody from Philadelphia the rest of my life. It's disgusting. The curse of Nick foles. I cannot wait to see where he signs. I hope he's not my division because I'm scared shitless of him. He may pick somewhere. Now where he knows he's got the eagles on schedule. If. Our him. I demand to being NFC's. I go the giants, right? Take them. I mean, they just announced that you is the start of next year while Nick foles said I wanna come listen who who's your GM? They've got on if he said, hey, Dave Gettleman, you know, that scene a major league. Like, I'm gonna shove this ball up your ass. Every if Nick foles said I've been so disrespected by one year archrivals the the Philadelphia Eagles that it is. Now my mission to make them my bitch for the next decade. And I wanna go in there, and I'm gonna beat the fuck out of them every single time. We plan on automate Carson Wentz. Beg for mercy on gonna show these people, you know, what you have. I gave you a one moment of joy in the tire miserable. Sports history in this is what they I'm a top fifteen quarterback. I wanna come to New York. And I want to shove it up Philadelphia's ass, you wouldn't take him. Oh, I would take him in a heartbeat. I know home men would take him out. They just keep sticking with at your after. I tell you this true. I'll. Tell you this saquon Barkley Nick foles who's that wide receiver who does the weird dancing. Odell Beckham makes me nervous. Those three maybe the top three talents in the league legal one team. Well, top fifteen quarterback top fifteen quarterback an eagle fans. Trying to say they took the high road here. You didn't take shit. You sent this guy out a top fifteen quarterback. Maybe the most insulting.

"But at some point that organization also has a responsibility to do the ultimate thing, which is win football games. It is winning football games. That's what the eagles have to do in. I can't find a single way in letting Nick foles walk that the eagles got themselves closer to that destination. I can't see how the eagles got better. Maybe the Jags will sign him. Maybe the jabs will get better. Maybe John Elway is sitting over in a corner now with the shakes realizing that he traded for a for a quarterback that that frankly, I don't think is anywhere near the value that Nick foles is he trades for Joe flacco sitting there say man, if I had just waited a couple of weeks, maybe the rest of the league has a mini ripple effect and soon somebody's going to sign him at that point. We're going to know what the value is perceived to be on Nick foles. But what we know today is that the eagles got rid of a piece that they may need that their playoffs hope may hinge on and while they did the right thing for one. I'm not sure they did the right thing for the rest of the roster straight ahead. We're gonna head to Indy for the combine. Plus are we one hundred percent sure? Then Antonio Brown is out with the Steelers. That percentage may be dropping. We'll tell you why next Spain fits welcome to Spain. And fits the podcast. The Antonio Brown drama is at a near NBA level at the same time that we've got Nick full suddenly on the open market and the NFL scouting combine.

"nick foles" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"And losing both. And my my answer is not a chance if they were to have lost in the postseason. I think they would have lost to the chiefs. But they didn't what how do you feel about that? Johny thanks for the call in California. And I didn't realize that both are northern California kids with Brady and gov. It is interesting to think that if they lose back to back Super Bowls would that drive Brady even more to try and get back there? But he's going to be forty two a year from now any through for over five hundred yards in that loss a year ago to the eagles. That's why when I break it down, and I look at I usually like the college pro even a great high school game. I'll look at the quarterbacks who has the better quarterback usually wins that game I'm gonna say eight out of ten times, right? So Brady's better quarterback much better. I thought foles for your ago, which by the way, the reincarnation and nine lives. Nick foles. And now the story where I heard John fasten that update talking about the they may franchise tag him. Are you kidding me twenty million? And then try and get something on the open market for him. Or is it a move where they could move Carson Wentz. I mean who knows what you're going to get when he comes back because his mobility was a big man, Nick foles. I know Andrew luck gut comeback player the earn rightfully so with the job. He did an indie 'cause they wrote him off the shoulder against Roe never be the same. And. But again in the got to the play offs, and they tried to be a different team. I'll just talking about what right did within the same thing. With Nike these guys over. Thank it when they get to the playoffs. And they forget what got in there. But to me, the Nick foles story who's gonna trade and pay him twenty million bucks. Sorry. So if the franchise tag is twenty million whatever the number is who's going to give up something big and pay Nick foles twenty million. And hope he has that postseason magic because his. L Sean Jeffrey Messia, they still had the go stick it in. But you know, his. Playoffs swaggers much different than the regular season. But I I don't know if they're going to be a twenty million dollar tanker the only team, I think comfortable and with avenue foles as their QB Philadelphia. And they don't have enough money to keep wins. And I don't know the salary cap hitter damage, it would be to trade winds probably a pretty good number but twenty million for Nick foles. They franchise tag. And they're gonna keep them. And then they're going to move on that that would be my guess, I have no connection at W IPM Philly. None of that. I'm just telling you. One eight five to one two four CBS that's one eight five five two one two four two two seven and Saturday huge on Twitter, Saturday night healed show, Facebook, let's go to Gerald and Houston listening on AM six ten you're on CBS sports radio.

"nick foles" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"Again, this time I think it's going to be thirty seven to thirty five Brady over Sean pay over Sean McVay because in the end, I just think bell checks defense is Tortuga l-. You're going to have your way you're going to score your points, but Brady will school or more. I think he's been on a season long. Almost a vendetta to get even with what Bella check did to him and last your Super Bowl, which is bench Malcolm Butler for the whole game your best corner. The guys that played the most snaps all year. He played no snaps in the Super Bowl and Brady's back to right the wrong. And I believe he's going to ride it against your Rams. Have you had a guy named Nick foles heard his name before then they play any time Brady last year Bill. Did you make the same argument last year about Nick foles buses time? I'm just saying I mean. Somebody help me out here chant anything he say that play. Let me say that you predicted the Nick foles with throw forty one points up on bell checks defense because I don't think anybody predicted that. Because remember, you know, you know, what I did. I did predict that the eagles win that football. The eagles win this football game. And I didn't need to point. They will win. I said that most ever go back and look into what you have to do with Tom break any quarterback. I think any defensive plan off as a player knows this. If you hit a quarterback and getting this face. No one likes that. And Tom Brady included. I think for sure the Rams will get pressure on time. Brady frustrating. Of course, he's gonna get his throws. He's going to be Tom Brady's no doubt about that. But do I believe that we're the better football team? I think we have a great game plan for Tom Brady. Yes. I you can't take anything with all Bill. Check. Go ahead. Shannon. The champ for a reason. There's a reason why they've been for the five of these things in the last five years, they're well coached the discipline. They don't beat themselves, and somehow they find a way to convince the opposing team they need to be perfect. And sometimes they take unnecessary risk. That puts them in harm's way. I just believe if you and I know sacrilegious to say this Cup. Tom Brady is a goat quarterback. He's a transcendent player, but you've got to put the ball in his hands. Because if you let them have a two pronged attack were they're able to throw it. And Tom Brady's able to pass it. You have no chance of beating them. I agree with that. What if I told you from the start? Yes, there's one man in sports, you do not bad against in. I'm Betty this. You are you bet two cases do lose two more. We've cleared. The Dax when we started over and you're already down to cases just in these playoffs. And now you're gonna zero cases 'cause you won't learn your lesson. This is Michael Jordan in sheep's clothing. This is a cold blooded assassin disguised as the nerdy. Corny dad down the street. That's who he comes across as after the game. He's off shocked. Gee whiz. And he is an assassin psycho, Tom on the football. You're gonna see once more, and you're gonna have to come in here on Monday and say, yeah, should've learned my lesson..
"nick foles" Discussed on The Tony Robbins Podcast
"Any org editorial director for our. I today were sharing a very special conversation between Tony and the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, Nick foles. Now, a quick heads up about this episode. We dug into our two thousand eighteen archives. And this interview is found we was never intended for public release after careful review, though, we decided that even though the audio is an up to the quality that we're used to bringing you. We still want to share this powerful message because this interview happened after Nick helped lead the eagles to their Super Bowl championship in two thousand eighteen where he was also named the game's MVP, and what you'll see is that even in spite of his incredible and complements Knicks sense of past failures and mistakes is never too far from his mind. And that's something. I think a number of us struggle with. Nick, reveals his constant battles with self doubt and fear failure. In fact, it was this fear that almost kept him out of the NFL entirely, but through his faith and his family Nick found a greater sense of purpose and strength, and that's helped him to move forward. He's even adopted in entirely new perspective when it comes to fear. He's a firm believer that if he hadn't experienced failure and pain in his past. He wouldn't be where he is today and along his journey. He seen how immensely important is to be open honest and transparent about your weaknesses because by knowledge ING, and even embracing your deepest fears you actually free yourself, and then you can grow into the person that you were meant to be.

"Joe was always next for some time. Appreciate it. How can the eagles accomplished keeping both players if they want to? That's going to be next impossible to keep Nick foles. And Carson Wentz for two thousand nineteen. The first problem is Philadelphia has the most capped commitments for two thousand and nineteen top fifty one cap numbers count the off season right now. There's almost two hundred thirteen million of cap commitments then care over a little over six minute cap room cap should be about one ninety. So they're not in close to getting under the cap. So it becomes a high stakes game of chicken with Nick foles contract. Because of the option years that exists that Philadelphia is expected to exercise. So your prediction is that the the eagles will end up picking up his option years, and then he'll pay the two million to get out of there and have his free agency freedom. How do you see him on the open market and how and how could he know that that financially is a better deal for him than the money? That is promised. Them from the eagles. Well thing is the money promised into eagle's. Even if they they pick up the option, and he doesn't exercise his right to extinguish the option by paying back two million. There's still probably not gonna keep him. They're going to try to trade him. And then it would become do you want to cooperate with the team for trade? 'cause if you trade him they're gonna want assurances he's gonna sign a long term deal. The twenty million salary for two thousand nineteen becomes fully guaranteed on March fifteenth. So then the eagles if they if he's not gonna play ball trade wise, they'd probably cut him anyway, 'cause they really couldn't afford to have Nick foles sitting on a cap at twenty point six million. If he doesn't take out the two million by it out. Now his agents are going to do their due diligence probably starting at the senior bowl and at the combine which is before the pre free agency. Period starts at happens. All the time. They're going to have a good idea who will be able who's going to be in the ballpark in. What teams are going to be willing to make him. A starting quarterback presumably for at least case keenum money. Keenum signed a two year deal. Thirty eight million twenty five million fully guaranteed assigning to go to Denver. We're talking NFL contracts and salary cap expert. Joel Corey on the shell Pennzoil performance line. Spain and Fitz sarahspain Jason Fitz, given the week quarterback market going into free agency, or at least what looks like at this point. It will be a week market. Joel what does that do to his values specifically this off season? He should be at the top of the list. You've got teddy Bridgewater who didn't really do him any self any favors in that regular season finale that he started. 'cause honestly he didn't look that good. You got a couple of quarterbacks that could be salary cap casualties or on the trading block. Like Joe flacco John Harbaugh said that their expects a trade market for him. He's got three years left at sixty three million on his contract. Then Ryan tannehill dolphins have to decide what to do with him the less guys on the open market. The better it is for foles. But he in terms of veteran quarterbacks. He's probably going to be the best one available and the only one really in the last couple of years proven that he can win in the playoffs. And when the championship span fixer Spain and Jason Fitz talking to salary cap expert, and NFL contracts expert jolt Corey you can follow him on Twitter at Corey Joel, do we. Have any idea? What Nick foles is looking for. Because it certainly feels like anybody else we would assume right go go to the free agency find as much money as he can get. But he's a unique guy. And there's conversation about you know, he's still may just say I'll just retire. This was this was a good run onto something else..
"nick foles" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"And I think that just presents a a little bit different situation for the eagles defense. You know, there is one thing about Brees. And I love drew Brees. But what does I'm curious on this? You know, they don't throw the ball vertically known. They're not they're not. I mean, we think breeze hall of fame, but they can dinkum dunk it a little. Bit greg. Yeah. And I think one reason they didn't do that much this year is because getting was out not that they're not if he was there they'd they'd be vertical team, but they didn't really take shots very much this year. And that's where I think Ted Ginn is a factor, and he needs to be addressed. Because the last thing that defensive coordinator wants to do is give up a fifty or sixty or touchdown. I think I festival for the eagles. It's interesting because there there were very sort of sustaining based off Vince with Nick foles last week's game against a good defense was very Representative of what they do with Nick foles strong emphasis on the quick game. Getting the ball at a false hands. Minimizing the pass rush. You know, working the middle of the field. If if you play pressman, he'll throw it to Geoffrey on the outside. And I think you'll see that this week. So they're they're pretty defined with what they do offensively. Just watching video here from falls. He's got he's got a decent arm. Right. Not a great arm. But he's he's he's not a power thrower. But he can he can make a throws. Philadelphia's just kind of a mystery wrapped in a riddle. Let's go to the final game. Cowboys rams. Okay. Listen, I saw a stat this week. And I'm not a guy that jumps onto many stats. I do like to see what you get yards per play. I think explosive offenses big play offenses can win game. Sometimes even when they're outplayed. But Dak Prescott leads the NFL and come from behind wins last three years in fourth quarter game winning drives last three years. It rushing touchdowns by a quarterback last three years. I will say this about deck. Forget the arm. I don't love it. I don't think he's an all time. I think he's eighteenth best quarterback in the league. But it does appear. And I don't know what the film says he tends to be pretty good in crisis. I always feel like last drive of the game. I trust him more than I do. I drive of the game. Right. What is tape say? Let's work macro for one quick sec. The Cowboys have defined profile. They're run game in their defense are among the best in the league. I think Zeke Elliott's to the best back in the league. And their defense is very very good. So the way they. Play is they rely on those two things. They don't ask that Prescott to do too much in the passing game. But that profile keeps games close and therefore winnable in the fourth quarter. And that's when Prescott s- running by design his improvisational ability comes into play. And that's when he's good. But it's really interesting watching their tape. You know, how how limited their past game is they don't really ask him to do a lot. But he becomes a factor in close games in the fourth quarter in the runnings apart of that without question. And I and look you could argue that they need to do more of that with him, particularly when you do get to the fourth quarter that is a clear weapon that he possesses. But you also have to remember look it was third and fourteen. They call the draw play for the quarterback. Okay. They didn't want him to throw the ball in that situation. They wanted to kick a field goal. They didn't know he was going to gain sixteen yards. That's a real good point. By the way, I sold my ram stock. You know, most of. About week ten. I thought they were overvalued. When Cooper Cup got hurt..

There are most things I think I can explain in life. You can find the answers for almost everything today on Google. I mean, you can ask any question the world they'll have an answer and Google there are some things though, I would say three things in the world. I cannot explain number one is smoking. Why people smoke you die sooner? It's a painful death. It's very expensive increasingly you are forced into tiny isolated places you've gone to an airport. Seeing the smoking section. That's a communal coffin. And it makes you smell get a patch. It makes no sense. I can't explain it. The second thing. I can't explain is a states that allow you to ride a motorcycle without a helmet, you do get. There is no such thing as a Fender bender on a motorcycle you're upright or you're dead. That's the way it goes. You're either flying around or you're dead and some hippie in a Prius checks out downloads, his fish album, doesn't look and knocks you into the next county. And you're a street pizza ski resorts force you to wear a helmet, you're going twenty eight miles an hour New Hampshire. You're going a hundred and eight and we're a headband. We're all good here. I don't get it. Here's the third thing. I do not understand. Nick foles is the best passer in the NFL. When blitzed I do not understand this. He does not have a great arm. He does not have great escape ability. Smoking states that don't demand a helmet and Nick foles being the best passer in the NFL. When blitzed I do not understand this Peter King yesterday offered this. It may be as personality. The fact that they get foles who's cool hand. Nick is he's told me I play with a quiet mind the day of a game. What does he do does? He study film. Does he do this? No, he journals about how to be a better father. I I'm just telling you, this is a different human being than a lot of the quarterbacks that that that we've known he tries to enter a game with classical music playing in his head Colin that is Nick foles. It is remarkable even Las Vegas does not get Nick foles Nick foles and Doug Peterson or now foreign oh in the play offs. And they've beaten good teams. They beat the New England Patriots. And they beat the red hot Minnesota Vikings. And they last week went into Chicago and beat the bears and they're eight point dogs at New Orleans Vegas. Can't figure them out Vegas doesn't like him and Vegas usually has it right Vegas has them. Do you know what? An eight point favorite is in the NFL. That's like when a dog goes to Foxborough like you get over like six points in the NFL. You get the average score in the NFL's twenty-six Twenty-three. That's like three times the average margin. We're down to the final eight teams. Maybe it's his personality. I do believe I've always had a little anxiety. I'm kind of hyper, I think there are certain people that are born, hyper and born calm. I was not born calm. I tend to be a little too intense a little too anxious a little too, hyper. I don't sleep particularly. Well, and then there are people that are just natural DNA.

"nick foles" Discussed on NFL: Move the Sticks with Daniel Jeremiah & Bucky Brooks
"Because I don't know that there's one answer that solves it all and with Nick foles, if certainly appears to me that the smaller doses in the play offs of Nick foles are different than when you get the full dose of nickels nickels and what I mean by that is he had the one great year with Philadelphia twenty seven touchdown to interception. And you know, the irony is if I'm using the word ironic correctly. I hope I am guess guess we lost two in the playoffs that year who's raising the saints and at home. Chip Kelly's offense. And you remember he had that incredible year. He set the record. He did all the things that he did. But remember the other opportunities Nick foles had to be a starter in the league. Yeah. You didn't walk away saying that's my quarterback for the next five to ten years. Did you you always like, okay? Who else do we have? And even the start of this year the sense. I get I don't know what you what you heard. But what I got out of Philadelphia's that they own they were kinda hoping they could go a little bit longer before they brought Carson Wentz back. Yeah. Yeah. And it got to the point where did where they felt like they kind of had to bring him back. Didn't they? And here we are again the second year in a row over fold has turned it around. And there's Carson Wentz onto smile on the sideline at the be thinking to himself again a second year like this. And and off we go but his experience in the playoffs helped him this year. Breeze of obviously has experiences won the Super Bowl. I thought to your point that yesterday in that yesterday. But on Sunday we saw what your point was about young quarterbacks old quarterback. It'd be better quarterback Philip rivers. Lamar Jackson it kinda show. It showed up that day. Didn't it when the mar- finally got his legs under he played pretty well down the stretch. But throughout Philip rivers did enough could make things go. Well, and never made the big mistake against a very good defense. No interceptions. No turnovers that was huge in. Chargers win. You know, that that is the big thing is nuts. Necessarily that you have to win the game. You can't go lose the game. And you brought up the Nick foles. Carson Wentz debate is one thing that I'm wondering if this continues to play out is it better have the winning quarterback in a Nick foles or the franchise quarterback Carson Wentz because we could be looking at a situation where Nick foles goes to the championship game or even to a Super Bowl. We have seen him win. When we said that the competition and the pressure is at his peak. You have never seen Carson wins. Do that. How do you hitch who do you hit your wagon to even though we know that Carson Wentz is a better player? This other guy has been a winner. And he knows interesting about that Bucky is that if we if you and I are having this conversation last year, I'm not going to speak for you. I'll throw mine out there and you follow if that's okay. I would've said unequivocally give me went. That's my franchise quarterback. He was. Playing at a an all pro level MVP level when he got hurt last year. And I don't care how well full plays in shorts short stint. Even if we win a Super Bowl. And they did I want wins for the long haul. I've invested in him. He's a better player overall. And I've seen foles ride the rollercoaster. Now, we're doing two years in a row. Let's say we do what you said. And and they get they get, you know, the possibility that they get to the Super Bowl heck win it whatever just getting there will be more than enough which way do you go because one of the things I just looked up and I just had it sent to me. And it was very interesting to put it mildly. Okay. You gotta love this one. Nick foles. Right in this season now with Carson with with excuse me with alshon Jeffery because you can see the connection is there. I believe he is like twenty three of twenty seven throwing alshon Jeffery down the stretch in the season. And I don't think that we ever saw went and Jeffrey make that same connection..
"nick foles" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"The man of the hour, Nick foles. Yes. Better quarterback than Carson Wentz. Not an overreaction right now. It's all about them. You know, it would be this is the this. Let's get to it right here. Let's do it. If Nick foles takes his team to the NFC championship game or even further you have to sit here and say is it with the money on the line when he does it over weeks one through sixteen outside of that one year he had with chip Kelly, by the way that season with chip Kelly wound up with foale's losing his first career playoff start against the saints. The only team to have beaten Nick foles in a playoff game, Mick as we all know one all his games last year. And then his first one this year. So you have to sit here and say Kenny do it with the season not all online and a doer Di game and get you to the playoffs. So he can perform his magic in the postseason. That's going to be the conversation that the eagles having a quiet moment. And he's thirty. So you can get a few more years left. You have to consider that. But it's not an overreaction to say that. Yeah. Nick foles free agent in two thousand nineteen Carson Wentz do four million next year club option for twenty twenty given the eagles have until thirty days before the newly gear meaning sometime next month. They've gotta tell Nick foles your twenty million dollar option for next year is picked up, but it's mutual so foles that has five days to say or Nain he'll say no to that. Because he'll get multiple years from somebody at way, more than twenty million bucks. I think if he beats the saints conversation that needs to be had. That's why it's not an overreaction next up the Los Angeles chargers the most complete team in the national football. What does that mean? That's like when here boxer pound for pound. What does that mean? Most complete team complete all three phases. Offense defense special teams throw in the fourth coaching. Excuse me. The the saints. Offense is terrific. The saints defense has been balling out and the special teams the punter hardly ever punts. And we'll let's of pretty good field goal kicker. I mean, everybody's complete right now. I don't understand what the hell that means most complete team. Okay. Reese -ly, right? What it means? It means when you watch them you don't see any weaknesses. So how how can we say the culture not the most complete team their offenses on tilt their defense? Hardly gave up a point this weekend in Houston. And it's Adam venit. Terry the goat special teams. I try to tell you we go that the colts were sleeping giant colts. And it could be the most complete team. The Cowboys are pretty damn complete team right now with everybody going off on offense. So you're saying I'm saying that's an over..

"Well, I guess what I'm saying to you is that you're looking at it that way, but I'm looking at it from the standpoint that maybe Doug Peterson simplifies things when Nick foles lineup. Whereas we're Carson Wentz. He's asking costs wins to do entirely too much. So maybe it's about the coach and how he coaches one quarterback compared to the other. When you talk about Nick Carson Wentz, rather when people not you'd say, but when people have talked about Carson Wentz, and they talk about him trying to do too much enroute of completed sixty nine percent of his passes throwing for over three thousand yards throw twenty one touchdowns just seven then exceptions along. Hey where you look at him. What you see is an individual that you might go out there. And you might look at Jeffrey's or you might look at an egg. And you might look at these guys. And you might look at the tight end tight end duo of Goddard and hurts and you look at them and you say, okay, apps and a run a game. We need cost wins to show out. Here's Nick foles things become a bit this. Here's about a one deals. Hey, that would be okay. If Nick foles couldn't play, but Nick foles at Arizona. I was doing radio everyone was talking Andrew luck. And then that Barkley was supposed to be the other guy. Osweiler was really good. I used to think other than luck. Nick foles was the best quarterback in the Pac twelve he's he that guy's really good. He torched USC. Arizona that year. And Nick foles was absolutely excellent. He turns pro season under Kelly twenty seven to his authority. This season underdog to myself on this world. Let's be clear. I've also I didn't give the eagles any chance to win this game. Let's be very very they were gonna win. I didn't think Tony Dungy was only when I think they were gonna win it because I said this defense is going to show up and there's not much he's going to be able to do and to me Chicago's defense. Did what I n -ticipant it. I just expected the eagles defense not to be nearly I thought that you and they went to eagle. Cog offense was quick Trubisky. Played well, I thought in a lot, but we'll get into that a little later in the show presents eyewitness interviews with inanimate objects. This is Brian Bruno live on the scene of a recent windstorm here to describe the event chest of drawers, there's a storm howling outside. So I thought I'd stay in and watch around town five minutes into the flick.

"But when you walk away scoring sixteen points for the game look and that defense what the remember ten injuries four in the secondary coming into the playoffs. They would have been hobbled mode here long. I'm going to give the defense of the credit. That's fine. You can give the defense plenty of the credit when the giants went on their Super Bowl run beat. The patriots defense deserve the ton of credit. Did he lie have some magic? Yeah. Yeah. Of course, Tom Brady early in his career when the patriots defense was getting it done. Tom Brady have some edge yet. And we're asking here is was it about Nick foles. Was it evidence of Nick foles magic food. They haven't stopped winning sticking since Nick foles took over a quarterback. And if you wanna point to the way the rest of the team is playing well, no kidding. It's the play offs. You're on the road against the best defense in the NFL. Of course, it's going to be tough. Of course, the whole team is going to have to contribute that doesn't mean. This is not evidence of Nick foles. Magic thing about the way the offense of line has been playing. It's not just that Khalil Mack wasn't able to get to Nick foles this from she'll Kapadia of the athletic and Philadelphia posted it on Twitter last four games. Right. The four wins. They faced Khalil Mack Aaron Donald and JJ watt. How many quarterback sacks among those three zero three hundred which was that they had lost three hits. No sacks. Like that offense of line. Not just Peter's been playing X lane Johnson and company the whole line has been playing, but you have to like the whole point of Nick foles is not just be can orchestrate a game winning drive, which he did. It's also that there's something about him. No knock on Carson Wentz. But there's something about Nick foles as you would say galvanizes the troops gets these guys playing together gets these guys believing. It's it's it's a parent. They think of the Super Bowl run they went on. Now they've gone another run to make the playoffs with Nick foles and just beat the bears at Soldier Field. You're going to say, it's not evidence thick walls, latch, well. Allow me. Explain this to differences due to differences of magic. If I set up there and told you that it was no big deal that would be entirely different. I'm not trying to. To say that I stand game the drop the game winning drive mex-. Here's where I'm coming from your definition of magic is different from on. Because when you say that you're implying in my mind that he's doing something in the Carson Wentz could not or would not have done. And all I'm saying you is this. We saw a costume wins. Go down with an injury last year. We saw him go. Obviously the nasty nasty knee injury. We saw him go back down this year with you know, with crack vertebrae, we get all of that. I'm saying you could cost them winter scored sixty points. Yes. Could Carson Wentz have done with Nick foles with the protection that the offensive line provided problem? Yes, here's the providence. Like when I say, hey, the Houston Rockets last year missing their second best player and emotional leader miss every three pointer. They take basically still only lose by single digits, and you'll say what to that may have turned out differently. If circumstances different Golden State would have answered right in other words, you're trying to say that only sixteen point Carson Wentz could have done that. You're. Assuming the rest of the team responds the same way the point of the Nick foles, quote, unquote, magic is that not only do they simplify things offensively. Maybe. Right. And they do not ask him too, much falls. But obviously, everyone knows Bowles can't do all the things Carson Wentz. Can do what does that do to the rest of the team? We all got to step up each one of us has to try to do a little bit more individually, collectively. And when you have a player that they like and that they believe in the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. That's what we're saying..
"nick foles" Discussed on First Things First
"The element of having to go to the silent count, the element of having that type of crowd to where you forget the fact that you're playing the best defense in football. But your offensive of line's going to be a tick slower on the get off because of the silent count and dealing with that. And I don't know how that eagles Vikings game which ended up being a blow would have gone if it was in Minnesota, and Minnesota's even slashers good as it was in my eyes. Not as good as this year's bears defense and didn't come into the game plane will people tend to forget in that playoff game before the Minneapolis miracle that they got out of that game. They should have the eagles should have been playing the saints. The saints core twenty four points in the second half against that Vikings and had over two hundred yards. So the Vikings defense that they saw was not on the level. Of this bears defense that will be taken the field. And I think just going back to Carson Wentz. I Nick foles the players in the locker room they like Carson Wentz. And then they see his skill set. Just like Chris was talking about. But they know that Nick foles can win in big game. So there is that element of buying into buying into that this is buying into the difference between another backup because when you come into locker room. And you know, you're starters hurt. And you're backed backup doesn't have any experience. And he's a normal backup that he's inconsistent. He's prone interceptions. And regardless of what the coaches say the whole game plan gets changed because that guy is not as good Nick foles because he was a starter. And now he has had some playoff success. You don't see the drop off in the attitude of the other fifty two because you don't have more confidence in him than you do Carson with you have more competence him. Then you do what about Mussa the guy stood failed fallow or chase? Daniel the backup in Chicago. Ago. I also think and I didn't tell me if I'm wrong here. But I've heard you talk enough about quarterbacks all year quarterbacks were having great years, but have not yet played in the postseason. And you always say I'd like to see them in the postseason. No matter. So no matter how good you think Carson Wentz is for until he's healthy and postseason game. There's tell me if I'm wrong gonna be a yeah. But with him that you need to see that has been removed with Nick foles because of last year. Yeah. I'm a big believer in that. I've seen a lot of guys who go through the regular season and put up ridiculous numbers, and they're playing loose. And then suddenly when you up the ante when you up the temple when everybody's at intensive level that you're not used to the they're not the same guy or they wilt, and until you see them do it in those big moments. You just don't know if they can't we talked about this yesterday which team of the of all the teams that are playing this week and has the least amount of playoff experience. Struggle players, totaling forty four games. He may be a backup quarterback. But at least he's got a little experience. Their coach will see later in the show coming up. What are the Cowboys need from Dak Prescott if they are going to beat the Seattle offsets next this? Big showdown in Dallas as Russell Wilson the Seahawks. Take on Ezekiel Elliott and the Cowboys in the NFC wildcard game. I'll start seven thirty eastern four thirty Pacific tomorrow on FOX and the fuck sports app. We'll get to all the wildcard match-ups in just a second. But I d to basketball Sean, Willett of Queen's University in Charlotte dunking on the entire Virginia union squad. Basically, just the lettuce ISM and the overall talent level of young people playing bass my someplace junior, college basketball, and you see guys that can do stuff like this. It is twelve people in this gym. This guy's jumping Dunkin from mid way up the lane. See? Lot of brothers on that court. Darren FOX second year players having an awesome season gets the in one to fall mid. We were we were having a conversation is the Aaron FOX the fastest in them beyond baseline the baseline with the ball in his hands. I was trying to think if Smith a guy nobody cares about is on that list. Russ..

"Even thinking about Nick foles now Nick foles deserves our respect obviously the Super Bowl champion one on that little run last year giving credit where Credit's due. Nobody's taking anything away from him. When he was a quarterback in St Louis. We saw what happened now obviously, contaminated by Jeff Fisher, we get all that. Okay. But the reality is that nobody thought anything more of Nick foles. A backup quarterback until afford a five game run last year this year. He's please he showing again, then he could do it with Doug Peterson in this system. We get all of that. So Nick foles go someplace else, he'll be a starter. Because you can't keep a man paying fifteen to twenty million as a backup. But he won't even challenge Carson Wentz. But this job the eagles made a decision two years ago. Carson Wentz is our franchise player and as long as healthy two years ago in a whiff. Super bowl. So you give them zero chance you Nick foles zero chance star quarterback this starting on long as cost and went to healthy absolutely zero collapse is as you laid out played very well this season statistically in the box score. He's going to be able to line up with anybody in the league. But there's one other category that you are ignoring when Carson Wentz went down. The eagles were six and seven with Nick foles. They come into play offs nine and seven there is something Nick foles can do to win this job. It is not likely. It is a slim percentages, max points out. But the thing he can do the same thing. He's done for the last two years when he's in the game for these. And that is win if they win the Super Bowl and they're not gonna win the Super Bowl. But if they win the Super Bowl, not only will the fans chanting for Nick foles, but ownership and the coaching staff will have to look at this product, then in resulting tune in a row crops wrote us out in the question type formed being a bit inquisitive, Nick foles. Goes on an unreal run. Yes wins the Super Bowl win Super Bowl MVP to interrupt. Right. He went Super Bowl MVP and throughout the season. All anybody was talking about when when causing what's coming back, though. Wisconsin Wisconsin, I'm trying to tell. But because it only happened once flew on a real question here, and this isn't a topic. So I don't wanna take long at if you're the New York football giants and your options are ally. Manning or Nick foles? RPO's with Nick foles saquon Barkley. Yeah. You're gonna take Nick foles, Stephen. Here's the problem with what you said on the one hand you're talking about Carson Wentz is spectacular. I agree. We all agree. I think the issue is he can't stay healthy. Right. But then in the next breath you're talking about if Carson Wentz healthy, he's definitely the quarterback. But now so in other words, he's gotta stay healthy. He hasn't shown the ability to have a availability the best ability. But he. Ninety to keep the minute. We've a relative we've already made it very clear, we know that Nick foles is viable if costing went health is a question. What I'm saying is from a skill perspective. Simply put if cost of Wentz healthy, there would be no compensation. That's about as it. There would be no what I'm saying is. If Carson Wentz gets first of all if Nick foles wins another Super Bowl Ryan Carson Wentz gets healthy baby Nick foles job. Anyway, if he wins Super Bowls in a row, you think they're just going to wave goodbye time. I promise you are you ready for this? Nick foles can win the Super Bowl this year back to back Super Bowl. Yes. And of caught and the only reason Philadelphia with keep Nick foles is because they will be worried about cost to get her. Right. Let's Jack what I'm saying. Because there's more wild card games. I want to get to like this one real interesting. Baltimore has been on a roll since Lamar Jackson obviously took over that team as a starter with an NFL best Dixon one record including a win over the chargers that was week sixteen in that. Game. Rivers with intercepted on its first pass the game outplayed by Jackson in that loss. Steven what are the chances that Lamar Jackson goes out there and outplays Philip rivers again. Janssen one hundred percent. I think it's very very Lamar Jackson. Go do it. Because I'm not thinking about is numbers. Terms of passing the football..

"But they are now going up against one of the best. They're going get Chicago. It's going to be we're going to see episode Alex play on both sides of I'm not I'm gonna take Chicago. Here. Attitude because the bears legit. I'm also backing up Nick foles. Like he does he deserves. He deserves. Chris. Now, one of the best at Bates in the NFL will be the choice for offensive rookie of the year. Baker Mayfield led the Browns seven wins. And on Sunday. He set the record for the most TD passes by a rookie quarterback with twenty-seven while in New York saquon Barkley had fifteen total touchdowns as season and on Sunday. He became the third rookie in the NFL in NFL history with at least two thousand total yards, and we are joined once again by Jason McIntyre who still with us. So Jason who deserves to be rookie of the year. I think this one's a layup without question. I think it's got to be my guy Baker Mayfield. I know we've had our issues he had blocked me on social media earlier this year now on blocked because I've said nice things. But I'm saying nice run you want guys Baker Mayfield has been incredible. Now, I don't know how you judge rookie of the year. Is it just the stats? I don't know then it's a toss up. But when you factor in the culture change in Cleveland, they go from how many wins last year? Two seven this year. Just remind me how many wins did the Browns have last year. I've forgotten rub. Just just give me the number ought to have one win Cleveland have one who's that that culture change? Did you sure? When it was under Hugh two years ago. And it was the culture was the same right? No, no, no one wanted to cold grill. When he got rid of you, given Greg Williams all the credit for the bribe is down three hundred Baker Mayfield, Alex. I believe he set the rookie passing touchdown record. It clips Russell Wilson eclipse Peyton Manning. But I don't want to just go big picture. I'll look at a small game like week seventeen. Okay. Baker mayfield's facing the number two defense in the league. Baltimore ravens. Okay. They've given up to three hundred yard passes this year. That's it. Pat, Mahomes who everybody has is the NFL MVP and guess who else. Baker Mayfield not once but twice threw for over three hundred yards against the best second best defense in the league. I know Robby at an interception at the end now on the way winning game was on the line. He's a witty. No, you know, down the road, and it just go. But what I should. I just means he's gonna go saquon Barkley, but listen, I will be Sean. Here. Baker Mayfield hands down should win the NFL rookie of the year would not even a debate. It's say Kwame Barco. You're right. It's not even a debate. You had to qualify. Your stuff with rookie wrote the season record for rookies as far as touchdowns. He's lost. When he's a rookie. I don't have to use that qualifier with saquon Barkley because guess what he is already. One of the best not rookie running backs in the league running backs in the league Todd Gurley Ezekiel Elliott and saquon Barkley he led the NFL in yards from scrimmage, total yards from scrimmage all right over two thousand. He was second in ineffectual in rushing. He averaged five yards per carry. He led the NFL in most Russia's for twenty yards or more. This do Baker Mayfield. We aren't even thinking about in terms of one of the best quarterbacks. We compare him to say qua- artists Sam darnold and the Lamar Jackson and so on and so we're we're not. We're not daring to bring him up with air Rogers and Tom Brady and all and even Patrick Mahomes. We not putting him in that category. Saquon Barkley appro bowler about away is already in that category. And by the way Baker Mayfield. Even even second is Lamar Jackson how about he didn't. He's the rookie quarterback that beat your rookie quarterback there. Six in one..
