"There is a man who has been chosen to be a head coach in the NFL's name is Mike mcdaniel. And got trashed by a guy named Sean beckwith who writes about sports.

"You call his number you know it's gonna be reliable production you know it's going to be reliable But then the other guy we talked about jimmy ward. Now that he's had a home you know it's been a reliable production from him as well and with. Sean mcveigh. He talked about this on grant cones podcast on. U2 he doesn't understand why sean mcvay keeps challenging him. It's so funny. Because we talk about sean mcvay like recently a lot because of the whole shanahan interview Sean mcvay and now jimmy ward brings him up talking about. I don't know why he continues to challenge me. I beat them every time. It must be a flaw in his offense. like why. do you think that sean mcvay keeps challenging. Jimmy ward per jimmy ward on that. Because he's sleeping on him and he thinks that because he's a safety that usually get the better of those guys especially in the slot but in twenty nineteen. I forget it was at the end of the game that i rams game. Jimmy ward raced to back to back plays third and fourth down With higby was he had to. I had to coverage our everett. Which is a de cover cooper kupp which that's all the more impressive because that's a wide. Receiver and cooper kupp is shifty in shorts places but he never seems to do anything against the forty niners. I don't know. I maybe sean mcvay has this portion of his brain just says he's a safety. It's fine keep going at him but if you keep watching happens. He was playing on the outside. In last year's game. In which nick mullins beat them in la and he was locking up robert woods in. That's know that's something that flexibility something that nobody else has especially from the safety position. So it's a good question. Why does i don't know why does he shouldn't. But he does. A jimmy knows it but But i think it's more sean mcvay probably is going off of that old adage of like safeties can't cover like that and jimmy work continues to prove him wrong but he's still doesn't adjust. I mean that was a a major thing that people said about de beginning about him not being able to adjust and seems like in certain ways. He's still hasn't gotten over that. I think we talked about jimmy. Ward now becoming this household name At least surfacing on the internet. I guarantee you los angeles rams at least from two thousand nineteen know who the hell jimmy ward is he. He had those two beautiful beautiful. Pass deflections that you were talking about In that first matchup week five or excuse me week. Six game five of two thousand nineteen if you want to go ahead and rewatch that and see the amazing game that he played and then week fifteen. Didn't seem like sean mcvay. Really target him at all at all that game and then last year it's two forced. Fumbles after whole forty niners. Internet's i i loved jimmy ward. But he doesn't turn over the nuns. Oh here goes to Same game The guy anything you asked for him. he's a stub. But i think the reason. Why is they jimmy ward lines up anywhere anywhere so when you have a player with that capability it could ruin the dynamic of the offense because you know the last play. Jimmy ward was playing high safety one. If he's in the blocks on your slot receiver or say in the slot on cooper kupp for that matter. You thought jimmy ward was in be at high safety. But yet now cooper cups hot read so you gotta go against jimmy ward. That's why you see guys like tyron. Matthew consistently making place jimmy ward consistently making plays during games is because these guys line up all over compared to richard sherman's first year with the forty niners in two thousand eighteen. The guy never got targeted because he stayed on the same side of the field. The offense knew exactly where he was so they targeted the defense in other areas based on his coverage which emmy award. You can't do that. You don't know where the guys are going to be. And i think that's why he feels like he's getting tested so often. And it's not. Like jared goff is painting manning to audible at olive it or it has the functionality to okay. Let me not go again jimmy ward. Here's this paper matchup. I'm gonna audible this place so that this guy's my hot read and the offense a line knows were going. Everybody is together. Jared goff's abigail says you're not that guy yet you know what you what people forget to is is last rams game. variety instrument so. Now you're jared goff even if you think what you think about richard sherman you look at one side. You know the jason for ball on because he showed you the first game that you played at a massive impact in that game. And then you remember the richard sherman had interception in this game and he still that guy when it comes to the brain when it's richard sherman so You gotta go against either sherm Or jimmy ward with your best slot receiver. I mean it's not. It's not what you want but at a certain point you know you gotta go against somebody serve Blanket whatever it is. You don't get behind him. A robber was doesn't offer that so that's not gonna happen So you don't really like that. Jason varez locking up was on the other side. Now jimmy ward is going against. This is probably your best chance to make a play because it is short area. And it's hard to cover those guys but jimmy wars locking up so it really comes down to pick your poison and i think that's a that's what people never understand about jimmy. Warnock creating turnovers. It's about making people do that. They're uncomfortable with because of what he offers you where he's slotted most of the time they never throw the ball that waits him. They never go up towards him. That's why he never has a chance to make interceptions the only game that i really know that he got the ball on his hands. The saints game. He dropped interception. You're probably tell you ten out of ten times. He's gotta make that play..

Because it's like yeah you're a millionaire you play one. Play the best sport in the world in my opinion in your regular guy. And i think that's what people really like. Yeah and that was fun. I i like having those conversations with you 'cause you know something to martell taylor tells me. He recently had his camp in in san diego and he had george kittle and wagner participate in his camp. And i'm like. Oh my god do like you. Have these guys participating. That's huge like dot late. Were normal people are. He's like we're regular people so George kittle i a lot of us. See him regular person's spotlight but in a more real conversation that people have been talking about a lot. And i want your opinion on this. Buy or sell to kill harry for a day. Three draft pick. How can you not by that. I mean i understand the concerns. He can't separate up. He gets hurt a lot and things like that but a sixth round pick is nothing six round picks end up being nothing when you usually you know if you hit on a sixth round pick. It's luck. that's not something that you you're not going into your drafts a man. I can't wait to get to that six round pick. That's where the value is. No most of the time you're either taking shot on somebody who's either injured that will you. Can you can turn around or developmental project. Why wouldn't you take a chance on a guy that leads you to brandon when you win you scouted and kill harry N look yet. He's having trouble separating new england. That's fine but i would counter argue. That with caution handles had guys open and and there's been plenty of people who haven't been able to exactly separate You know by themselves. has gonna find a way to get it done so i mean honestly for a six picked too easy. That's to incentive. Send it over and if anything higher than third afford that that's out of the range but a six six ron conditional i believe is what they're looking for that releasing easy to me and especially when you can reap benefits from it if he does come around. So i like the thought of richie james junior you know. He did have the hundred and eighty two yard game against the packers. Virtually he was the only receiver on the team. So that set that up on t. But i look at his route running. I don't know if you feel the same way. It is not really chris. It doesn't really lean to a shanahan a prototype prototype wide receiver He's not very twitchy when he rents his routes. Everything's you know at a curve. Or it's on a screen to set up. Open space for richie james or just doing a dina wheel like he did week. One against tampa bay where jimmy hit him. On the first touchdown of the season. But i think nick you'll harry could be a whole lot better than that and i say that more. So as okay. Well if richie james junior in really the route renner that shanahan's gonna want and they're not very chris. Why can't nick. He'll carry nikiel harry. Wow i'm butchering names here. Why can't harry get open and shanahan offense and create separation. If he's doing that for for these other guys like river cray craft on a on a post corner. Unfortunately the ball rolled out of his hands. But and dine by nick. Mullins i get. Yeah we have to celebrate. Every you know best throw by nick mullins or nfl. Throw by nick mullins because there was a lot that weren't So if he's doing that with these guys why can't he do that with an akil harry and get say were looking at a wide receiver. Three five hundred yards from him. It's not like the forty niners are trading for nicole harry to get me eight hundred nine hundred a thousand yards. We're talking about five hundred yards third down conversions red zone appearance that he says he wants to be per his agent I think that's where the thought of nicole heriot's let's put the bar at a more realistic projection of if the forty niners traded him and he was on this team rather than setting that bar high. Like if the forty niners gave up a day two pick for the guy. So you're expecting seven hundred and fifty yards. No you're giving up a day three. Pick for guy this young on a rookie contract. You're not expecting seven hundred and fifty yards If it happens this team to an era out team or someone got injured. Unfortunately which i probably don't want either of those things to happen As much as i would love an air out offense that doesn't really bode well for time of possession. Defense thing fresh defense being ready So you do need that running game out there We we too much chip. Kelly's offense it. What happens when your defense gets exposed. But deforest buckner have over thousand snaps as a rookie or second year which is completely insane But then i don't know tell me about the benefits of not giving up a six round. Pick on the kill harry and getting someone or you could also talk to me about the downside of getting someone in the draft that late so now you have four years of service time. Compared to just to well. I compared to john jennings. He was a six round pick in. He wasn't even on the team last year and it was a lot of his issue was is. He couldn't separate. that's that's what they said. You know now. All accounts out of camp. This year are the. He's much better. But i think that against be my point about trump being developmental people people. You're taking a shot on any way you know we already know. This is well documented at the forty. Niners were in on in kill harry. They went in. They scouted him and that means that they really enjoyed something about his game. So and you and we also know that when shanahan gets it in his head about a guy he gets tunnel vision. I kind of brought this up in. Its don't wanna really get too many people upset but jalen hurd got drafted which maclaurin on the board. Now we can tell right now on your three. That wasn't the right pick at this point. Sarah maclaurin is better than jalen In place but again at speeds to at times cash in hand gets tunnel vision instead of seeing the bay pitchers. Like i love what i could do with this guy. You miss on terry maclaurin. Who obviously with the quarterback play would have done the same as acting that he did over there in washington. Because dwayne haskins kyle allen out smith those rates quarterback so Usually has tunnel vision when it comes to guy so incre harry somebody that they did identify that they really liked. Doesn't make sense for you not to take a shot right there on him in the six round this is a guy was drafted in the first round is actually played at At this level he's caught. A few touchdown passes from tom brady. So it's not like he's never played before so i if anybody can get anything out of him as kashan a but the separation is the is the biggest concern in my opinion and pretty much everybody's opinion that's probably the only downside is like okay. You get rid of a six pack does not really gonna burn. But if in harry just continues to be what he is than you know then you kind of wasting your time. But i don't see why you wouldn't try to give a shot at it and see. See what you can get from a release for a season because then it's either destroyed. Cut him. I think i think is guaranteed. Money is like a drop in the bucket of like like a million something That's it for this year and next year. So it's not even like it's cost. Effective is not too much money or anything like that or the cost is too great so all of these things when you add them up it actually makes a lot of sense for you to give a shot and the it's on them. I mean if we're kicking tires on to new and and other players i understand hamas news been in this offense and understands it but come on you know Harry you gotta give him a shot as well too especially when you look at some of the wide receiver. Three candidates on seemed like austin watkins. We'd love But he was undrafted he would have if he would have been drafted. it would have been sixth round. Pick in the same way and it seems to me like from the council for. He's probably going to be a developmental pick. So that's that's the thing when when you weigh the cost of the six round To which you can get out of harry. I really don't see too much of a downside but there is a little. Bit of a douse only look at it like that get ready for stats on your baseball stats with the first of its kind. Mlb a are app brought to you by t mobile. Get in the moment.

"To another episode of the niner. Patient podcast. I have a special guest actually a celebrity with me. You've you've definitely heard of him before. Jason upon how you doing friend a celebrity. Get outta julio. now. I'm not. I'm just a guy just a podcast okay. And that's what i'm doing here and that's why you called me so i i appreciate the invite though i was love hooking up with you guys on here whether that's rob you know. Lebanon any guys. Kp excited to. I learned something about new jersey today. I am personally never been there. I plan to be in the area actually for my birthday weekend next year. So you obviously know. We lincoln up when that happens and When we link up apparently we have to do something before. We open a bottle Anyone in that area knows what i'm talking about. Go ahead explain it for the people not in the area. So it's a stupid superstition with a with people around here so if a group of people let's just say we're at a party and let's just say i combine. I bring a bottle of whatever alcohol. Everybody has to tap the bottle for. good luck. even if you're not drinking do not open the bottle onto everybody touches. It is something that has been done since before. You know before mammo time or even before i was even really allowed to actually purchase alcohol legally But it's something that that continues n. If you go. It's not something that happens all the time because most of the time if that happens people just like bring a bottling play you catch yourself the certain places where somebody will walk through and say you gotta to the bottle pro. It'll take me back to two younger time and it's so funny that you sent me because it's one hundred percent So if i pull up to the crib. Or i shouldn't say f. I should say win win win and i bring a bottle of wine because that's what my j.'s gonna want. I pull up with bottom line. You gotta tap it. Like wine counts as well yeah. I don't really think it does because back in the day when we were doing it. The liquid selections wearing is fine. We were drinking drinking wine. At that time it would be basically what everybody had. Money to scrape together get but You could do it with wine is just. That's something i've never seen done because the people that actually did it never really drank wine and we're talking about tapping a bottle of cognac. Or vox or something like that. Whatever whatever everybody can scrape together because this is the like you said the land before time. Yeah so bottle Which is the stuff. I prefer to stay away from But if i am you know go drinking with somebody in the new jersey area. I would hope that it would be george kittle and that brings me to this question. I wanna ask you is george kittle the biggest forty niners icon. I'm talking about like current state on the forty niners not became an icon after the forty niners. Just say after they retired or moved onto a different team is he the biggest like icon. The forty niners have had on their current roster. Since who i mean. That's a really good question. You know the only other person that i can think such love inefficient base. That is not on the rosters. Frank gore behind the difference. George kittle is more mainstream tight end university all over the place. Bud light seltzer. He's he's known across the country for forty niner fans. We hold frank really close. But i don't think that the mainstream polls freight the way that we do in that esteem when it comes to george kittle. He's crossed over. He's doing more for the tight end position that anybody's ever done Titled university has all these titans coming together. nike You know bud. Light sensor all of these things george kettles crossover and he's an icon right now so i would be hard pressed to find somebody right now or recently that has had the impact As far as as far as mainstream goes like george kittle. He's just a guy that everyone holds to a high standard like a high place. I've never really heard anyone say all that. George kittle guy. I don't like him. I can't stand him he's annoying. I haven't heard that. I really ipad. Seahawks mind that. Say i worked with them or just cross paths with someone. That's the seahawks fan and they all of ten out of ten man. If i could have one player on the seahawks that's a forty niner is storage kill so everybody holds his guy to such a high standard and the person that comes to mind for me is probably jerry rice. Everybody wanted jerry rice on their team. He was beloved by literally all thirty one. Other teams Will what should. I say. Three other teams because the houston texans weren't around yet And there was just no bad word. You could really say about jerry. Rice similar to george kittle I- withrow capper. Nick in that mix but only more so safe once. His playing days were over When he was his last year with the forty niners he was on the rise like he was he was an icon in my personal mind but that more so took over once. His football career ended Which unfortunately ended too early That's only reason why. I would kind of go jerry rice before kaepernick and you talked about it. The one year of dion ooh the talk about icon like that. It'll like that's his name somewhere. Like his name icon. That's the person that i was really thinking about but again it's only one year but dion i'm talking about like flashy everybody knows type thing and that's the first person i thought of which was dion. So that's actually really really good. That's a good answer. Because you know dionne dionne wasn't icon and not on so it's one thing to be an icon because you're a fun guy or a fun player or do things. He was the best. He's the best of all time. And that's that's kinda where i'm at with this. I mean it's only been one year of that but right now Right now it's it's hard for me to put him over. George kittle at this point. Just because kim has been here so much longer and i think i think forty nine fans in the mainstream. They really loved the story of kittle. Right of Guy from iowa who just burst on the scene broke the record And like. I said he's doing more for the tight end position that anybody's ever done ever and and now titans get more love ever because of him because it kelsey those guys so And and george kittle. Just a fun guy. You know we all we all know that the nfl stands for no fun league. That's not the case with. George kittle out there. So i think that's another thing that people gravitates. Yeah i've noticed. They even have the running back room. Talk and i think it was. Uh what's his name. Cj to k- Formerly of the tennessee titans Talking about the running back again. More love bob. Aw because george kittle like really making it known to about the pay rate for the tight ends and i think what you said wi- with diani and kill being the best at what they do is is spot on. Like george kittle reset the tight in market and dion reset the cornerback marquez terms. His what they make on on a team salary cap So yeah they'll those two guys definitely icons jerry. Rice differently icons You obviously you have your joe montana's and you're steve young's but we're talking about someone that's voelkel someone that's active someone. That's just literally every page that you can have on instagram. Joe montana steve young. I don't know if somebody has no but they didn't have instagram back in the day So george kittle faces all over the place you know and like you said the story i previously got lucky enough to have like beers with joe staley for a few hours and i try to buy him beers. He didn't allow me. That's where i wanna be with. George kittle day. George kittle seem like the type of guy to where similar to joe staley. Your like your ribs aren't gonna hurt from just laughing with that conversation the whole entire time. So if there's one current forty niner that i wanna have some beers with. It's absolutely george kittle. you know. he's an icon..

"What's good everybody. Welcome to another niners nation. Podcast i am rob's that's carreira here with you as i said yesterday. Michelle magique is off today. So there's no regular stats and mags podcast. But don't worry wanted to do something a little different to take advantage of the fact that we can switch it up a little bit here. So i was able to get hold of mike. Golic junior of espn. He was kind enough to sit down with me yesterday. So we can talk about the forty niners offensive line look. They've had a lot of problems there last season. We all know mike. Mcglinchey issues are well documented. Well golick obviously played for notre dame. He still has close ties to that program and with mcglinchey and now aaron banks on the right side of that forty niners offensive line to notre dame guys i thought it might be worth checking in with golick and you know picking his brain a little bit. Why did mike mcglinchey. Struggle can the forty niners offensive line. Be better in twenty twenty one. What are we getting with aaron banks. How is alex mack. Going to help things at center. So mike and i sort of ran the gamut here when it comes to the offensive line and also yes we did talk about trae lance a little bit because mike had a great reaction when lance was initially drafted by the forty niners. He was extremely excited. And he thinks lance is a little bit more pro ready than maybe some of the other people in the national media so we got all that with. Mike was about twenty minute interview. Wanted to give you the chance to hear it again before i toss to that just reminder if you haven't done it already please follow the niners nation podcast network leave us a five star rating and review. It really does matter. If there's more guests you wanna hear different guests you want me to ask a guest a certain question. Drop it in your review. I promise you we will read it all right without further ado. Here's mike golic. Junior of espn got an interesting guests. Somebody that i know back from my days at espn radio way. Back in god the early two thousands. Now michael junior you know from chennai golick you know for pretty much everything. Espn what's up. Mike thanks for coming up stat going to say. We were just talking about the entire likened by coaching tree. Wherever once ended up right now so glad we can look back and it's a while yes it definitely has. There's a ton. I wanna get to. But i always said that if i got the chance to interview i would do this because i used to. Produce profootballtalk which was on six. Am so. I'll be driving into work when you were on with robin lundberg on the overnights on espn radio. We first and last. And i gotta tell you when i first heard you were on. The i was like this is bullsh- golic's kid is on the air. He doesn't deserve this. This is unbelievable. And i thought you stunk. And i listen to you every single day and i want to say to you. I was jealous. And i was one hundred percent wrong then. And you've only gotten better now. And i wanted to say on the air because i always felt bad about it. I always said. I would never begrudge anyone for feeling that way about me because listen. We all certainly jobs for different reasons than i knew. A big part of mine was exactly what everyone saw there. So i a grudge anyone you on that way in you probably right then because god love robin lundberg. Who had to really help me along all that one i have. I know everyone tells you to save your first couple of shows and go back and listen. I have not had the courage to go back and listen for a couple of first of last so you were probably right. Then but it's it's it's been a journey for sure. I got lucky that they put me. They're just you know tried to make the most of it since it's just like football. Reps rep threats. You know eventually. The bad still works at this point. So we'll see how much longer we can fool them. So i'm willing to admit when i'm wrong clearly but i don't think i'm wrong when i look at the forty niners offensive line and that's one of the things i wanted to talk to you about today. I don't know where to start. I gotta start. I guess with mike mcglinchey. Like can you explain to me. How dude that was kicked in the top. Ten of the draft is getting put on his ass by defensive backs last season. Show i think mike and for i think last season's going to end up being a bit of an anomaly for bike here. I just i know for him. He was a guy that when.

"The best fit for this franchise if they do part ways with cliff in it tells crazy talking about this the summer before the season even happens but you need somebody to come in and be able to have credibility Like a doug peterson or somebody like that. Who's one before. Who's going to be able to resonate with cuyler. And i think tighter has respect for cliff but i also think that he hears that outside noise. How can you not so i. I think he is a liability. I do think that if things break the right way they could make the playoffs. But again i mean this team should be primed and ready to go. You got your three of rebuild ascending quarterbacks stars all over the roster and you're picked to finish fourth in your division. Was that tell you your head coach. So i have like a like a two part question here and what this is going to entail is the outside looking in. And that's what's the like thing when the forty niners matchup against the cardinals on sundays like what either position group or the aspect of the game. Where you're you think to yourself at. The cardinals are gonna come out with With the win this has to be avoided and then on the on the reverse side of that. It's what part of the forty niners game. Must you feel cardinals. Have to expose the forty niners to where you feel like the forty niners may at a certain detail be vulnerable. That's a great question. I think offensively if the cardinals are able to run the football with either marie. They are almost unstoppable. Because kyle murray from rpo standpoint i think is even more explosive than than Lamar jackson The most explosive runs in the nfl last year. So if they're able to run the football more effectively with hudson. Which i think they will be so chase. Edmonds has a has a really nice fourth season in the nfl been. This team will be incredibly difficult to stop offense of late because you can mix in the play action. You've got deep threats now with both kirk enron. They'll more we'll see what they get from. Aj green. but i just think it opens up everything and think that's their goal. They want to become more physical upfront in. So if they're able to run the focus last year. They were too dependent on hopkins. Chiyoda play backyard football and no play encapsulated that more than a hail mary. The hill murray. And they adidas. That's right. I jason bread plate hopkins really tough in week sixteen jalen ramsey practice shutdown options. So there's couple matchups in your division where you can't just rely on him even though we look phenomenal in the opener last year they need some continuity in some secondary options so they run the football. They're going to be very difficult to be. And then on the flip side watching san francisco. Play the cardinals. Let them get so comfortable working off of that play action boot on the move with. Cj beathard last year in that week. Sixteen game if they can stop the run coincidentally i hate to go cliches. Run the football. Stop the ron. If the cardinals can force whomever's playing quarterback. I'm going to guess it's jimmy garoppolo in the in the situations where it's third long. Don't trailing answers played one game like eighteen months. It's going to be jimmy garoppolo if they can force jimmy to Have to throw a long down. Distance that bodes well for the cardinals in You know the the niners have sneaky good offensive line. I liked the alex mack Acquisition the cardinals were on him before they acquired rodney hudson. Of course trent williams is backed dot com. he got to stay healthy So the cardinals are gonna have to lean on their two young thoroughbreds at inside. Linebacker in enforce jimmy into position or not comfortable. They did a pretty good job of that. We won last year but then on the flip side he was really bad. But then on the flip side. Cj beathard do whatever we wanted. And we've seen so again that that to me is where you know deniers when they are able to run the football. Almost unstoppable because shanahan can get so creative with his with his run concepts. and then. i'm. I'm really high on the the young receiving corps in san francisco. You guys got a feel good about that. It doesn't really matter who your back is. You're running back at so interchangeable for kyle. So i think that if you're able to stop the run enforce them to get the long distances where you know. The gym is going to be throwing that. That's a good place for the cardinals even to because their front seven is so predicated on rushing the quarterback and they have four five guys. That can do it. I mean that's the thing that we've leo said this whole time. If you can force the forty niners throw the ball tie. You beat him and you know so with the cardinals going into this season. You know where you obviously. Where do you think the success is to be. Where do you think that they're going to be successful in this year. Three of the rebuild going into this year that they could surprise people you instead of finishing fourth. They could finish second or third. What would be the thing that would happen for them. To be the surprising they would have to find a complimentary second tier legitimate receiver to hopkins. Somebody would have to emerge a kirk in. Aj green iran deal more for for for this this offense to get where it needs to be. Which is playoff ready. Which playoff worthy. And i think. That's not too much to ask you know kirk contract year. Aj green knows. Everybody thinks he's old and washed up. He he signed a one year deal for for little to no money. We'll see what they do at tight. End dan to find another explosive receiving option. Defensively to me. It is limiting the big place in the breakdowns and game. High production from jj watt. They get production from jj. Watt the emulates. Anything that we've seen from. Jj watt or even like you know mid twenty ten jj. Why they're they're going to be very formidable defensively because that's just an element that they have not bad but on the flip side if keiler is made uncomfortable because nobody's getting open nobody separated right and then on the flip side. Watch her in. They can't stop the run in the secondary stan. That's that's when the wheels can fall off quickly because the seem especially in their back seven depth. I like the players that they have. But they're incredibly thin and then they don't have a bruce arians anymore or like kyle. Shanahan does where you can win on sundays With below average talent. Nobody in cardinal. History was better than matt bruce arians Could go eight name with blaine. Gabbert drew stand which is mentioned practice squad players because he's that elite of a head coach. Of course that's not clip. Kingsbury cliff kingsbury. And that's what's so frustrating. The cardinals were relatively healthy team last year outside a champ jones. The offense that they finished the season with is predominantly. The same offense that they started it with week. One against san francisco mean how many teams can say that so. I think that's an indictment on cliff that it's like what would you say you do hear. Cliff you're not really elevating a lot of these guys. Were just relying on. The stars that we know are stars. It's a lot of is a lot of backyard football. They just need to be better as an in game as it. In game coach as prime one actually the forty niners in two thousand and nineteen to took both games. Last year they split. Where do you see them going this year. I think they'll probably split in. I've got the cardinals winning seven or eight games. I think they'll be under five hundred. The niners are always a team. They played.

"They took two picks wanted cliff. Wanted decay to or. Clint pointed. Isabela too so that makes it all the better. So then then the next offseason a second round. Pick to trade for younger hopkins so this is the third consecutive second round pick. They use our receiver in all by the way they do it again. This year they taking another receiver in the second round so they used four consecutive saying around pets on wide receivers and they have the onder gins a bunch of guys to show for it. I mean that's the thing is the players. There's there's missteps right here and there but the players you have nailed. I mean a star in this league is one of the best quarterbacks in the league and the thing is is you have yonder hopkins who a lot of people believe is the second or third best receiver in the in the league and then the defense is full of stars but every time we talk about the cardinals whether it's on twitter on this show we come back to your head coach and we talk about your head coach and how you know as kyle shanahan stands manlio pretty much like we will stand for that man. I would stand in front of a car for that man. If he was about to hit with a car. I would jump on him. He has single handily turned around. The forty niners from one of the worst rosters ever watched in my entire life to one of the best going to two years ago. So we talk about your head coach and you being a fan of this team. I want to hear your thoughts on cliff. I think we've had some kind of. We've talked a little bit about like this. Is his last year twitter messages and stuff but like this is last year if he doesn't make it to the playoffs he's gone so you know. What is your feeling about cliff. His last year if they don't make the playoffs.

"The cardinals really haven't had that quintessential defensive front seven leader since class campbell was allowed to walk. Why is gonna help the development of some of these younger guys even don't play his position and he was seen golfing with with saving collins the other day. That's the kind of loose staff that we can't measure on these analytic sites that that maybe they were missing last year. The cardinals michael bidwill. Certainly hope that that's the case so it's too early to tell. I mean statistically you know the the metrics would tell you that one of these guys is not gonna pan out collins or sims right Fingers crossed. That's not the. But i mean you know first round pick. The hit rate is is fifty fifty nine on linebacker. Hit rate has hired how you constitute who successful. Who's not but the cardinals need bowls have been to be not just good but great players given their draft status especially some of the guys they passed on. The simmons situation is interesting because not only did they pass on worse who he was in the discussion for for that pick and they're not terrible right. Tackle but worse is on a different level. There's also strong consideration to reunite tyler moore cd lab. And i know if you go back they probably would have a redo. It would have taken if worst wasn't available. Ceedee lamb lamb star for dallas. You see now the fact that teams aren't shy about pairing waddell with two or you know. joe burrow with jomar chase in. The cardinals didn't opt to tate. Ceedee lamb they just traded for The andre options so they probably didn't think they needed it. But then you watch the team last year. They were so desperate. Need of a second receiving option. There's a. There's a lot riding on on simmons collins to me going going back in walking through this first round. The the board was picked clean by pick. Fourteen match owns with fifteen but look the names that went one through fourteen. It was everybody the dan berlin. The experts telegraph to go. So i think a lot of people just assume yes it's going to be aiding collins or they're gonna try to trade down so i think there's less pressure mad aspect whereas simmons they pass on some starts so they so they need him to stud yet so i want to ask you about a couple of players that with the forty niners that are new to the forty niners better are old to the cardinals one would be trent sherfield wide receiver. Special teamer A lot of people are predicting that he makes the team. He makes a fifty three because the forty niners went out there and got a special team. Gunnar something that ever. Since they took out rey he most full-time. They had a another couple of injuries on special teams last year. So they got exposed As that. that's why a lot of people are predicting sheffield makes his team. The second one is the forty niners which across guitar. He's been inconsistent when it comes to putting a full seventeen games together so with the signing of tony jefferson there. There's a chance that we may see him as a starter. At some point in the season Hopefully not for jacuzzi tarts healthwise obviously But if we do see both these guys make the initial fifty three. What could they expect. I know tony jefferson is a few more years out compared to sheffield just on the cardinals last year. I think it's easy for me to have a root for both of those players because they were undrafted. A trent sherfield particular Grew up two hours from from my hometown. In danville watched him play high school football and then went to northwestern super high football. Iq somebody that you watch all the behind the scenes work that the cardinals did with the nfl films. They highlighted him in a couple of different specials in just gets after it. He's a phenomenal special teams player. I could absolutely see kyle shanahan fallen in love with his claire. Clearly they went out and targeted him gave him. I mean they gave him nice money. I don't know if he'll ever be consistent receiving threat but like it would not shock me in the slightest if they turn him into the next kendrick bourne for the niners and he was that kind of player for them He's only twenty five years old. The cardinals had too. Many higher draft picks that they've invested the india's of the world christian kirks. They couldn't afford to keep transferred on the roster and they've got other individuals that man the same special teams young goner positions coverage positions. That are outside of the receiver so they needed players on the roster that contribute receiver. That's not to say he can't do it but he's gonna help on on special teams and you're going to notice him on sundays and i i just can't say mortgage things about him. I jefferson tony jefferson situation. It is interesting because he has been really the one. True impact undrafted free agent. Bit steve kind is found and they brought him in the developed him. He was a really good player. Probably a borderline pro bowl player during the cardinals height of the aaron's years the two thousand fifteen season he had a couple four. Fumbles pick six couple intersections. You probably should have made a pro bowl that year. You're in in the following year. He got into a contract. Squabble with gm steve and they cardinals basically gave him a lesser tag. Wasn't the complete full out restricted tag. It was one of the lesser ones. That paid him a little bit less money. They nickel and dime. Tam in it was. It was pretty jarring to see because i mean he was a really good player for them and he got lost in the shuffle because they had peterson and tyrod. Matthew rashad johnson gerard powers in a bunch of these other high caliber players. I mean matthews was unbelievable player as he's continued to be in jefferson was overshadow but and so the cardinals let him walk as a free agent. After two thousand sixteen he goes to baltimore in as a borderline all pro season and then the following year a believed gets hurt in baltimore. Just doesn't see the same kind of player in two thousand nineteen. I want to say. He's got a bunch of money owed to they cut it and so one of the biggest question mark for the cardinals..

"To the niners nation. Podcast if he asked me the man covers should be. Tom brady and no montana but for some reason. It's going to be patrick. Mahomes and tom brady. And we're not gonna have that conversation on this podcast but just know. Ea you messed up. You messed up. And i'm mad with me as always as luna of forty nine gold mine dot com. How are you doing man. I'm doing Doing great. Because i have no fish story this week. I thankfully Sebastian the new fish. My house lasted through the week. So i did not have to make another trip to petco like the week prior. And and hey you know what was the. What's the end story with with. Ea did joe. Montana not one not wanna do it or you know i. I guess that'll come out sometime in the future. They haven't actually announced it yet. But i know it's going to be tom brady and patrick mahomes. And i'm just disappointed in them. Because i know it's coming. Witless this week is aghast. We got johnny venerable birds. Podcasts talk about the arizona cardinals. How you doing man. thanks for having me Not a whole lot. We got a. It's the dead period so we're gonna do. We're doing an nfc west preview or going through the division your first but i have bad news for you. The reason you're i think you're going to finish last in the division gary mayes. Meisel talk about the dead birds right. I don't think the difference is and i and we'll talk more about this. The cardinals aren't a bad football team. That's the biggest problem is like. It's just there in this division. Where the rams now have a quarterback for. Sean mcveigh the seahawks. Have russell wilson with a crap roster and then you have kyla murray but your defense you know. We still don't know exactly what it is because we don't know which. Jj why are you so let's start. Let's talk about it. You know what's changed since last time. We talked you. Johnny john last year right after the niners loss to that Loss team first. Game of the season jimmy. Garoppolo looked like trash since then. The niners have now thought about moving onto the next quarterback. But you know. We don't know who the quarterback is for our team. We obviously know the quebec is for your team. So let's talk. What's changed with with the arizona cardinals going into the twenty twenty twenty season. Well it's it's the third year harib bills at two thousand nineteen the two thousand eighteen season. I should say and have gathered the roster turnover. I objectively in most cardinal fans. No kinda told the line between phantom being realistic. Because i'm all you know thirty three. And i've i've seen this team and i'm not like seventeen year old fan of but i think objectively atop twelve ish roster in the nfl annette's kudos.

"You know but to me with garoppolo and where you know. I got him at the twenty first ranked quarterback in the nfl. And i know you probably wanna yell at me and do all those things too. But garoppolo's biggest issue is more of like it's his feet as well but in a different way his he. He needs to have more populous. Be get his feet underneath the more. There's so many times where he's drawing the football and he doesn't hitch right quarterback to take a step drop they take that hitch step up in the pocket and they throw it that allows you to capitalize on all your power and when done right. It's going to help you with your accuracy to have you've got. i challenge. people go back and watch. He throws almost every throw without a hitch step or his speed being black nor his back leg which is his right leg outside the framework of his body and you can create power that way. That's one of the reasons. Aaron rodgers hitch steps into those types of throws that we were just talking about in mahomes so they can get that back leg underneath their back shoulder and now have real power to use their arms and their legs at the same time throw rifles. And that's jimmy g. issue for sure twice. Bad deep balls to stats. Well let's go through kind of a tale of the tape then on these two guys. Yeah accuracy who you give the advantage to lance or garoppolo garoppolo for sure right now. Yes okay. Deep ball i assume trae lance well it or are not great either. They're not ever be one of the things that i didn't like about the draft process. Either he's got a really strong arm. It's nothing about that. He is a little bit. What i would call a one club thrower right. Every throw is kind of the same. Kenneth throws is deep balls hard is out routes hard to slant route hard all of that. He doesn't have a pitching wedge or nine iron and some of those the throw though so if he can learn how to do it a little bit. Better throw the ball higher in the air things like that. He has the potential to be the better down. the field thrower garoppolo lacks that real power. That way so yeah. I go i'm gonna go with trae lance just a little bit there. It's not great. Like i said but i think jimmy's is really one of the lesser at all football when he talked about throws like three and forty yards down the field. So you just mentioned the arm. Strength with lance. And i feel like. That's one of the exciting things that i'm looking forward to. When you start. Which by the way should be right away. I want to see the difference in the passing offense with lance with some of the out. Routes some of the sideline comebacks. Because they're not running that stuff with jimmy like you've talked about a million times you load up the middle of the field. Because that's the only place jimmy for throws it. Yes you're exactly right and trae lance and his you know it we correct these sayings and starts to be the player and he could be. He certainly gonna put more pressure on the defense. And i think what you're talking about. You know to basically sum that up is when he's at quarterback he has a greater chance of making the the defense defend the whole field. Yes and that's probably where i think. The beauty is a shanahan. Wow i can trip people with trae lance runs line. Normal running games aweso. Oh yes safeties. Come down here in the box. Come on stop. The run moster sturt stopped. Trae less zoom seventy yard bomb over the top you know. Oh i'm rolling out who forty yard laser on the run to deebo samuel crossing the field. There's no doubt that he can open up the field for a lot of different things and really in my heart hearts. I think that's why shanahan draft because one you know. I think he liked the schematics advantage. You'll get from the run game two. He hasn't credible high end. And i think three shanahan's is good office. Coordinator is there in football. I think he's finally realize that. Like man. I gotta have more than maybe the matt ryan jimmy garoppolo's of the world times for breathing me with this great office to win games. Go back still to that. Forty niners at forty niners bills game this past season where some of the quotes added the forty niners locker. Room the coaches. They just jumped out to me. And that's where i also feel like shanahan was like man. I gotta get me one of these guys. We play perp defense. And josh allen still stored points of threw the ball over the field on us like we weren't playing good defense and i think that was a big moment for shanahan at least a with the light bulb. Go off a little bit. One hundred percent jimmy. Garoppolo cannot make a play outside of the structure of the offense at all. And you could. Nick mullins and neither could cj beth. It was amazing to me that their whole quarterback room could not do that. That's why i wanna see lance in there right away. Chris what is the point of acquiring this guy. If you're not going to throw him in there you don't learn how to drive a car by watching somebody else do it. You learn by greed in the wheel and yeah sometimes you ding one of your side mirrors a little bit. That happens but let's go. What are we waiting for right. Well listen. I don't think you're crazy. Let alone he's already done it with. Rg three of that. Forty nine or team was not a sound with. I mean that redskins team washington football team. Sorry they were that team then. So i hope i'm not wrong by that. But this forty nine or teams more talented. The offense is more talented than that football team. I think i still think there's a chance for that to happen. Trae lance continues to grow. Do some of the things we talked about mentally and then translating on the fields physically doing those things and to your point to listen. This is one of the other things that i think was tough about the trae lance evaluation..

I recently did something. I went on a show called. Why were fans a guy named genera and guiding dran and basically got to talk about my phantom and everything kinda lead up to me being a niner fan. I think a lot of people don't really know who i am. I just came out of nowhere one day and so i think that was cool thing. It's true also people have necessarily like. Where did you come from. And and a half minute. Organic organically yeah. I've always been a fan. It's just never you know to this degree where you It was kinda cool while with those guys so check that. Show out there On twitter at why we're fans pod. So he totally check that thing out by an hour and a half long some beer and just enjoy me talking about. Why fan of organizers but One thing before we go today look forward to the next three weeks. We've got a cardinals guy. A seahawks sky and iran's guy coming on noggin doctor who they are. But we're going to break down the arizona cardinals seattle seahawks and the rams and that. Don't worry that order is how i think they're gonna finish in the nfc west with us being on top. But who you know. I i think people need familiar with these teams. Because i think that it's pretty obvious now. The might be the best division in football. And i think that there's so much talent there minus the seahawks roster except for became kavanagh's wasn't the cardinals are very much a threat. They found a way to beat us last year. I think that maybe we'll get some revenge on them this year. But the rams with the new matthew stafford thing. I think that's gonna be really interesting to talk about with them and you know the loss of their offense coordinator so look forward to that the next three weeks. Nfc west preview than we're coming back after that ns preview gonna get ready for training camp gonna start talking about the conversation that's on everyone hung and that is the quarterback position but this has been the niners nation podcast. We will see you next week. Go niners we'll see what happens between now and next week. Maybe we'll get the more free agents. Take.

That sounds for cautious right now and their careers us. This look at the side of the back of the jersey. Asai on just gonna performance specialties. Moseley as you know you didn't have any toys injuries coming also so there's a lot of things there were out refer. Just keep them with a squad now and moving on a russian. Yeah i mean. I just i i like the guy. He's just a what we talked about. Trae lance a little bit. It's what's between his ears. he's so smart. And i think that having a guy that smart is great for ambery and for demont lenoir and so you know having this guy in the building i understand. He's gonna wanna start. I just don't want him in seattle because of how smart is because he's going to help those guys and if it's worth it for seattle just pay a guy you know other situations bad enough with kelo and i think the other guys named trey flowers. Who's just awful To the point where they do. I just my biggest thing with a lot of these dudes. You know tony jefferson. You know we talk about danielle hunter. We talk about all these guys that are free agents that could potentially come to the forty niners. I just don't want them to go to the rams of the seahawks. I don't want him to go to the cardinals. If i would be willing to give the money to make sure they don't go there. Just because i don't wanna get burned. You know the carlos dunlap thing is kinda still fresh in my head. I was like i would take carlos. Dunlap sure you know like he's not terrible but then they play the niners granted. The quarterback was cj beathard. Who is awful. But he sat them. You know and the thing is like you kind of feel like you're burn when you know one of these players who is a proven proven. Good player or proven. Decent player goes to another team. You know makes you feel stupid for not wanting him on the forty niners so you know when you talk about any nfl player. Who can make the team better. I'm not gonna say no as long as the money's not too crazy the wanna overpay sure. But if we're not if nobody's overpaying j. b. I mean the sky's the limit. I just want the best team possible. Because i just want to win the super bowl for sure i mean yeah. I don't. I really don't know who like who who's out there available ringer. Tony jefferson. richard sherman. I think a lot of people want danielle hunter. There's not it's not a ton of big names out there but the thing is is like just any extra guys you can bring in because of how bad the injury situation for the forty niners was last year. I just think that you know looking at those guys. It's just whatever you can do to bolster a roster that really dealt with them insane injuries last year and i agree like like i'm all about adding debt of a and hopefully you know adding deb receiver in d. v. to me are just a position where you know of concern. I know you said we talked about. Julio already but undecided On the top of my christmas so you know you want some for christmas. That's that's really what i want. I really don't care about anything else. I just wanna julio regular. i'm right there with you. Trust me a couple of names. I'll just throw at you guys and you could tell me if you want them.

"This season that that can't be acceptable we need to get a punt returner And i think that yeah. That's about it. The all we have written down l. quarterback. Oh line definitely get better on a at least right garden center. Quarterbacks have been hit sixty eight times. everybody's talking about how jimmy can say healthy. Will you know when you're getting hit sixty eight times. No quarterback can stay healthy at that point I mean this game was crazy. Niners outgained the cry girls on first downs. Fifth twenty eight to fifteen cry. Girls had two hundred ninety one total yards niners have four hundred and fifty eight and i mean the and it was over ten minutes difference in time of possession over the last two games. Twenty four point two forty one points of a turnovers forty twenty four points forty one points off of turnovers last two games. Twenty four points off turnovers this game that that's not winning football. I don't know what to say. Fuck decry girls will still say that no matter what the lost Reason for hope. Giovane law and brennan euch and fred warner. I mean that. That's that's my reasons for hope turning point in the game which was fricking threat. Taylor not catching the ball bounces and gets down in between the one in the two and that was the game i i made the mistake of thinking that was when we were gonna win the game. I thought we were going to go on a stain drive. Believe the clock and scored outshone when the game. Unfortunately i think that's where we lost the game and so here we go again. I tell we'll see y'all friday for niners cardinals preview. Make sure to check out. Nine or faithful radios. Good morning empire today and tomorrow we'll be off for the holidays and again not again.

"Yana who listen to the show. Very frequently first of all. Thank you second of all. Y'all know me. I don't really like to. I tend to focus on what we did wrong. Or what we did well. And i want to say don't give credit to other teams but i think i tend to go through the side of. Oh it's more of the niners niners lack of rush. But even i have to admit look there is i. It's hard to be a quarterback when he's playing like that that was amazing to get a little bit of the playoff picture for us who faithful. Who still have a sliver of hope that we do. I think our best. Bet's you're gonna wind minnesota whose foreign four in the conference. They got the bucks chicago. Norrland's in detroit left to rest of the season detroit. Who's ahead of us has green bay tennessee bucks. Minnesota chicago as houston minnesota. Jags in green bay. We have watched in the cry girls. Arizona and the she cox and arizona has new york giants phillies niners. And yams i think is gonna come down to us minnesota and arizona. And i'm not necessarily worried so much about where arezzo does we obviously need to win out as long as we can wayne within one game of arizona we will we will be able to pass arizona because winning out would make us have before to division record We would give them their third loss which means they're guaranteed to least go five hundred division. Which would give us a better division record and hence give us a tiebreaker. Minnesota's the one that you're you're minnesota's gonna have to go to. I'm assuming they're to lose to the bucks in new orleans and then you think they beat chicago and detroit will give them a six thousand. Six conference record. Niners went out. We would have a seven five conference record and there you go. I think that's your playoff scenario. I i believe chicago and detroit. We'll take themselves out of it with especially detroit. I mean they play green bay and tennessee. They might be without within the next couple of weeks. Same with chicago. Miami houston minnesota. Yeah i think that that that both of those teams y themselves out of the playoff race here pretty quick but before we.

"When you look at the broader spectrum of things, I think he's a perfect example of player that fans and fans of every team have these players like players that they get attached to the bears have been strip isky that some of those mistakes are more than others for sure. But it just kind of a case in it's fine. Like like like those players. I ain't here to tell you how to live your life. But it's just kind of in reality. Like, he's not as good of a player as I think a lot of the fan base kind of things that he is. And does he have like little flashes here? And there does he look like it pretty athletic dude and make some plays every once in a while. Sure. But there are loads of those type of players that come out every single year on the draft. You can go get and he hasn't shown anything that proves that he's necessarily markedly better than that. So I think yeah, it's just kind of a case of they haven't had a lot of great players at the position recently players that they have had that are good have been injured a lot. He's had to get some plain time. He's been a k-. I guess sure. And that's kind of enough to to latch on when you have kind of a bad roster. I think it's important not to again get caught up in like the best of a bunch of crap. Right. Like, you don't that's not what you're looking for you. Would still be going out there looking for improvements. And I think that's an area that they can definitely find better players elsewhere. So we will have the entire list of tier four zero five players on Niners nation. So that you can see the fullest of where the roster is at. We will also be posting the model the definitions and the quadrant up on Niners nation as well. So you can become familiar with it and the next week will come at you with some of the I think to to enter three so we'll be able to get into talking about some of the players that are a bit more fun and some of the successes on the forty Niners roster. But I think where we landed key takeaways from tier three four and five is there the defensive back situation is dire. But the linebacker situation might be just as and then when you get upside positions, it's definitely along the defensive line, and maybe even at wide receiver, and then men that twenty seventeen draft class, I still that's it's tough, man. I think you you looked at guy. Guys, like, you know, Witherspoon Thomas and foster there, and you expected that kind of they were going to be the key components of the next gray forty Niners defense whenever they were good again. You would have expected those players to play a significant role in now, obviously fosters gone Thomas Witherspoon are kind of looking after two years. You're not really sure which way they're going to go yet. So it's just goes to show how much can change in a year. How much your perception on these players can change? And and you just want to do the best you can to keep gathering as much information as you can. And you make judgments as you go. But yeah, I think that's an interesting place to be after last year where we thought a lot of those guys we're going to be those key pieces. Another reminder that draft evaluation really shouldn't happen enters until about your three. And then we'll see what happens at that point. Yes. Sometimes you get lucky, and you know, you know, like sometimes early on. But you know, a lot of these guys it it takes time. It takes time for exactly so that about does it for this edition of the better rivals podcast. Tune in again next week where we will continue with the roster model talk, and we'll talk a bit about those transitional players those second tier core players a bit more fun.

"The model to the forty Niners. We did this last year and it really helped zero in on the positions of true need for the forty Niners. It influence how we broke down the draft and how we broke down free agency, and where we should spend resources in terms of free agents and draft. And I think that there are you can say while I know that the positions need, but it's like, but let's actually take a look at the roster holistically and figure out if there any kind of positions or areas that we think may be fine. But maybe waiting to explode in terms of a ticking time bomb because they haven't been addressed with just the players aren't very good. So what we'll do over the next couple of weeks is we'll talk about tier five players tier four players today. And then we'll talk about the rest of the tears in the coming weeks leading into our free agency previews, which then lead into the draft. So we'll kind of move along in the offseason just as the forty Niners. Do so that will be able to to keep up with what it is. They do provide some recommendations do some scouting put brains to work and have some fun this offseason. David. Let's talk about tier five the replaceable players fund the most fun. We're going to start it from the bottom. And now, we're buck. Let's talk about this. Because this is what we talked about the twenty seventeen falcons forty percent of their Auster was to your one or two. And now we look at tier five for the forty Niners. How what percentage of players are in tier five for the Niners. Looks to be chicken. Math your forty percent. Yep. So it would be inverted 2017. Yeah. And this is still the exact same number funny enough. So the number of players basically the way that we are the player pool that we are using here for this is if actively anybody that is under contract for next season, plus your pending free agent. So if if they're listed on the forty Niners dot com roster right now, they're included in our group of players that were valuating here..

"So I do hope we see more of that. Well, it always surprise me that we didn't see a lot of it. The first two years under saw always kind of thought that the Seattle defense went hand in hand with that sort of aggressive in your face press coverage, you know, read it's scrimmage in the forty Niners haven't done that as much as I was expecting when when shawl was coming in. Yeah. It's. There's there's a lot. I think gets a bad rap in a lotta ways for for his scheme. It's it's a very -able scheme. There's lots of there's lots of there's a lot that goes into it. And we've talked at length on the show about it. So our listeners probably don't wanna hear me, why philosophical about the issues with solid, but hopefully, I think Joe woods brings a bit more that man coverage because I think in today's NFL if you can play man coverage, or at least you can mix it up and not stay predictable and not end up like the chargers where you play, you know, man, coverage just ten percent of the time. And so when you're zone coverage isn't working you have no change up. And you have nothing to go to. I think overall you're you're better off defense. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. No, I agree. And that'll be something to kind of add to the the repertoire, I think in in year three of the skied now Ritz Tangaroa he interviewed for the Broncos offense coordinator job. He is the odds on favorite for getting it. I don't know if they've actually formally announced him getting that job. But it seems like that's a lot. He's now in day to day three of the interview process. But I'm curious why he was initially blocked, but then was allowed to interview because the team has seemed to have blocked just about everyone except for skiing Carello. So what was it about the job of the role or anything that initiated the change of heart for the forty Niners? Well, I don't even know if there was a change your heart. I mean, it I haven't figured out. What happened initially that they they rejected the interview request Cowger Shanahan was on vacation for a little while. I wonder if the disconnected as simple as as that that you know, somebody else sort of speaking for him. And then when he got back, you know, incommunicado he he sorted. It out, you know, one of the reasons is because you know, the other the other two guys Mike McDaniel and Michael Fleur. They were requested for OC positions as well. They're already coordinators entitle one is the pass game coordinator the other is the run game coordinator they help Shanahan with the the the game planning each week. I mean, he's those his to top lieutenants, and they were being asked to interview with teams where they wouldn't have play calling duties, so it would the their their duties in rezone and in Green Bay wouldn't have been all that different than what they are here in Santa Clara show. I think that was part of it. He leans heavily on those guys. He wants them around. I mean, that's probably. In in even bigger part. And then as far as getting Rillo, it is a true promotion for him. I mean, he he's going from quarterbacks coach to offense coordinator so under Vic Fangio because they're fans you he's definitely going to call plays under under Vic Fangio. So it's it's a true step up the ladder for skiing role that would have been pretty hard for for Shanahan to block because you are keeping this guy from a golden opportunity show. I would like to know to the back room haggling that went on there. I mean, these two franchises are obviously close to one another given who's in in the power positions of the mall show. I guarantee you there was some wrangling. I don't know what that is at this point. But all find out soon enough. Yeah. I wonder if this is anything to Nick Mullins next year because I do think they will. Have a legitimate competition for that number two role and and Shanahan might may end up keeping all three quarterbacks on the active roster. But I think you've mentioned it and mayo 'cause mention that as well that Mullins was a scanner elegant..

"But it's not like you suddenly have you know, to starting to the thirty two starting quarterbacks, you know, sitting behind Jimmy Garoppolo there waiting to be flip for all of these resources right there. Still very much backups. I think you can feel pretty good. I mean, I think we we know how important it is to have a back of Philadelphia knows how important it is to have, you know, a decent backup that you can you can be able to at least plug in. And if you have the parts around them, right, which is kind of I think the part that needs to be worked on, but they can still keep the the the the engine going there a little bit. But yeah, I don't know that you really are too. Concerned about it you go into the offseason with both those guys and just kind of see how plays out from there. Now, the forty Niners did fire their strength and conditioning. Coach Ray, right. And I really hope I think my one takeaway for the new coach whoever that may be is to add masturbation to the training regimen to really improve the forearm strength because clearly strengthened conditioning coach array right had lots to do with those broken forums in the secondary. And so he got canned most broken tackles lot of a lot of those on the forty Niners defense Assyria. Yeah. They're of the same ilk. I guess, but I do think that right? Got a little bit of a raw deal in that. He got fired think there had to be some kind of action taken. But I think the Niners will regress to the mean when it comes to offense. And I think that the new strength coach is going to benefit. And that's that. I don't know that it's going to really matter one way or the other.
