Fresh update on "patrick mahomes" discussed on NuChannel Sports Podcast
"Mahomes pedal hoses ever said that he eats breeze are sleeps football. But he's the best quarterback in the league right now and you know that he the ambition and a motivation to be one of the best to beat the goat. So i just look at this era of players and some of the comments that they make. It's just different nowadays. They're not they're not gonna be they're not gonna be. There can completely consumed with something like that. This is this is how it is right now. Back into a little bit different. I don't know about that because i don't. I don't know how. Patrick mahomes consumes football. I really don't because you're right. I haven't heard him necessarily talk about it in that way but when i do know is there are some people who see trevor lawrence is common. But i well. That's just a new age players. And i just disagree. It's not the new extra players. That's just how trevor lawrence fills and the thing about him. It's more frustrated. It may be more frustrating to hear because he has goat-like tomlin. We know that so when you hear that you're like okay so he's clearly not going to be the goat and i don't know people that rubs people so wrong is not. It's just it doesn't rub me that way. It's okay that he doesn't see the nfl like that particularly. Because i'm sure. I am pretty sure i could be wrong. That he's had a with angela. Andrews like look man. You're gonna get hit and it ain't worked at like i. I can honestly see him having that conversation your luck so i don't have a problem with what he said because i know he's gonna come out and now he's going to compete and i know he's going to be good so i'm i'm okay with man. I i definitely think there's a new ace thing because i think that a lot of these players are learning from previous players just like you said he might have had a conversation with andrew. Look andrew luck because they man is not working get hit like that and so he's taking a different mindset as to how seriously takes the game. I've heard different. People like area fosters. Say it ain't going back. In time. They would never football. He said on this podcast that he would play being over time. So are these statements that are being played now as opposed what was being said to me. When i was growing up was that oh man he's four. Players are gladiators they're going. They're putting their life on the line. You gotta go there raw. That's the mentality that we had. We had that mentality going in their crushing it and just being absolute best now. What these young folks are hearing quite different. They're hearing that football. Might not be the support for them that they might want to go to other avenues and just different things like that. Might change your mentality on how you wanna play the game. And that's what i mean. When i say these new school players they may not put it. All in like people would have done back in my day. So i just i mean. I'm not saying anything wrong with that. I just i just. You can hang always we always. We can always agree. Chris but that's fine but the reason disagree is is not is doesn't mean he doesn't work very hard and then he's but that's that could be taken out of what you said i mean can be taken out what you said. And he didn't say that at all all he's saying is i mean for what i the way i see this for week. One through seventeen or how many weeks they got down. Nfl he is. I think is eighteen because they added another week but either way he is going to play hard but he's okay with doing other things and i'm one hundred percent fine with that. I don't think he takes away from him doing what he does on the field and the thing i really like about him is it. It makes me think about russell. westbrook right. Everybody wants to play is harder as russell westbrook but you may just not. Everybody has that that motor that thing that that's what he's talking about is like i don't i don't have that so i'm either going to come in lot of you guys. Do i wish he kept to himself. Yes yes but is being honest. That's exactly what i'm saying to you. We'll talk about obesity that how people perceive it. How do you perceive him. Say that on the interview right. You look at russell westbrook. Because that's a pretty good example. We already know that russell westbrook pays the chip on his shoulder night. In and night out he has that relentless a'motor to this play. I'm beach you at any cost. But he said it when he was talking about. Stephen smith man like he's won a championship in life. That's important to him too. But you also know that import from do on the basketball court. But based off what trevor lawrence said. It was a combination of two things. Right you we all know to a certain degree that there's more to life than whatever sport that you're playing as an athlete right. Most some of them do but even the great so tell you know is all about football basketball or baseball right but the problem with me. Trevor lawrence is when he said that he can not manufacture having that chip on his shoulder. I think as a great player you always have to have that ability to take was someone says to you. Use that against us that as fuel but you. You said it chris based on what he said. I can't see him being the goat. And i think that's where our polls down to being the goat. I may have to backtrack amount coming. I'll say this to his defense thing about it in college in. Excuse me in high school heels. Probably call the best quarterback in the country and he wasn't probably was and then in his freshman year in nc double a. He went out and he didn't just beat alabama. He walked alabama and on his brain. He's never i think is more sound like i've really never been tested. He's never been criticized so he doesn't know and i think that chip he's more saying i can't even get up for the games because every time i show up i win so there. There's a chance where in because he's going to go through a bad teams going to the jaguars and their own. Four right and people were writing bad headlines about it about him. He may wake up. And i'm like oh no oh no. Oh this what you had to say about me. I'm coming for you. So there's a part of him that does does even understand criticism because he's been so good. I understand what you're saying. I really do but it goes both ways right. This is kind of like peyton manning and ryan leaf right you just you said it perfectly chris. Maybe hasn't had that adversity to get them to the point where he's like okay. I got a clapback but one or two things could happen. Just like you say. Chris he can start owen four and he can start off in the whole because it's going to happen wanna against the nfl. He's going to see a while. These people are really talented. Everybody is good at their position so he can use data black. You know what. I'm gonna play harder. And i'm gonna make football more part of my life or it could happen. He'd be like oh andrew. Look take this too seriously. So i'm gonna back now. I'm gonna keep on doing what i'm doing and i'm not gonna try to get any better i'm just gonna. I'm sure angela the intended. Msa say he said. I might he might take it that way. He might take it as he doesn't need to do. I don't think you'll take it back where he just if he fails he just he just didn't have it. He's a bust right side. I just i don't think but he would be a bust because he has the talent chris. Let's say they had the talent. He has been many layers born pigro. You have the talent you do talent right but some gop is. Do you have the mental. What you're saying but the guys just are your bust. I mean it just happens sometimes. But they're still reason why they're attributing this quote to him being a bus he'd be a bus because he's had enormous talent. It'd be as first time face guys at really challenged him and he doesn't.

Fresh update on "patrick mahomes" discussed on Speak For Yourself
"Brady's books won the off season. Absolutely when you win the championship and you do not get worse. We have to assume that you have won the offseason now. That's the easy. take delays. Lazy takes potatoes. The interesting thing is the bucks didn't get substantially better now. They were already better than everybody else. They didn't get worse. They didn't get better and get but you don't think how they brought back. Everybody giovani bernard since he got into the league he started in the nfl and catches from the running back position and tom brady desperately desperately desperately needed a running back. Who were cast about feeling. Thoughtless on mccoy was gonna be that. He wasn't about leonard fournette. Could be that. He didn't so the bucks dot minutely better but they didn't get substantially. But i mean not compared to say the rams rams think they upgraded in a major way at the quarterback position and so you got some teams even the browns. You get troy hill at the cornerback position. You bring in a safety You get like substantially better on the bucks. They were already better than everybody else and they didn't get worse. Question is can their lack of getting worse. Still keep them ahead of got better for your a wordsmith for real. I work jobs. I got like twenty two. I don't want to work him then. I heard you speak again i say. Oh he's so eloquent and he just fuller that the alley. Great time they want last season they won this season the super bowl this off season. And you said they ain't get substantially better what they have continuity now. Oh all season. Oh preseason oh still got. The chip hungary auger bernard. Who's going to help. And you know. Tom brady loves him true. Altruism adam is coming after halloween in gronkowski mass vac most importantly last quarterback to repeat. Nfl is now in quarterback substantial yotaro. Because let's bring this entire show full circle if we shall here the cheese. They had continuity after winning the super bowl the year before not get substantially worse saying when i came back travis kelsey came back. Hauls came back chris. Jones came back. Tyreek hill came back. Me call came back in drafted a first round running back after finishing twenty six rushing the year before so they did improve at the running back for this like the bucks improved at the running back position but what happened in the back was a team. That was getting better. Sorta chiefs didn't get worse but the bucks was out here. Getting better and the bucks ended up catching and surpassing the teeth track and field to bring it all to a head go. You might not necessarily not be speeding up. Decelerating hasn't if somebody still accelerating. I'm saying the bucks did not decelerate. But they ain't accelerate. What happens if somebody back there who you trust. More as a captain of this plane. Tom brady or patrick mahomes. Tom brady you know why. Because we hit the turbulence like they did in that super bowl against each other. Ch- tom brady. This is your captain. Speaking. everything's gonna be fine patch holes. Did silence didn't respond to it. Everybody panicking in the. What are we. Go down tom brady. Relax aaron rodgers staff. They got much better. Got every element you need to build momentum and they got the best pilot in the game still flying at high altitude else coming up luca dodge rabbit out of his hat last night. Yes he did. We'll tell you if he's on his way to being the nba's best player. that's next. i'll speak for yourself don. Don must've wanted to challenge last night. Since he's put two defenders and leaned in hit a game winning three pointer to beat the grizzlies even said he was surprised that went in and call the shot. Pro china lucky. Don't marcellus as luca on his way to being the best. Nba player. yes he is but he's not by himself. He's on the freeway. But there are other cars next to jason to now there's a logjam front of obviously katie to be in the fastest and the best on this freeway and in the broad right there staff you know james harden but then you know. Lucas looks area. It's not jason tatum. Zairean zaire damage. A big old car. Right there devon booker. Nice little motorcycling meaning point is. He's trying to get to that. Finish line first logjam in front of them other participants next tool. I feel that take. I think luka is trying to get there. I think he's the one that's gonna cut through after like you said the lebron james and all the other relevant names you mentioned outside of here when you think about the twenty eight seven five club you got luca. Got durant your boy. You got your honest you think about the twenty five seven and seven club. You luca you got lebron you got the joker and you got hard regardless of what club you wanna go to garland of how esteem the club. Is you. go find luca in that club for that reason when you talk about the elites whether you're talking about twenty eight seven and five twenty five seven seven. How many boards. You're gonna get how many points you gonna get. How many assists. You're gonna drop. Luke be in that club waiting on you like. Oh i'll just now showing up it only twenty two years of age sale. You know as. I got a bigger name and same game so might get a little more fame. Raymond up here right now. Because if zionist stays close to luca wherever they are right now in terms of performance with zayas name recognition chew rayton all of the momentum that he brought into the nba because of his career is a mega star.

Mini-Episode "Answer me this" Guest predictions: Bears QB - burst 2
"First time podcast. Guest longtime listener mark silverman. Espn one thousand co host of waddle and silvy two to six every day on espn. One thousand. I am going to go and i had a list the other day on the show of seventeen quarterbacks who could be hat or who could be on the move and out of all of those if i have to pick one. I'm going to go jimmy garoppolo. I believe san francisco's in a position. Right now where they have a really good thing going and they want to replace jimi g. since he's been injury prone i think you can get jimmy g. for cheaper than he's been whether he's caught you could sign up for cheaper free agent deal. He may want to go back to new england. Maybe bella jack doesn't want him but ryan pace eastern illinois guy also Fellow good-looking guy. Just like with trubisky could veer that way as well. So i'm going jimmy g. And as a close second maybe gruden gets rid of derek carr and the bears would trade for garrett car but those are my two if you force me to pick one. I'm going with jimmy garoppolo.
Mahomes to have surgery to fix turf toe
"Were talking about Patrick Mahomes undergoing surgery turf toe. And we started talking about this about three hours ago, and we were just going around the room going. Do we know exactly what a turf toe is? Because it gets it gets thrown around a lot and remember when dealing Sanders was with us at the Super Bowl when he took off his sock, and he showed us that toe That was turf toe that never healed whether he had surgery on it or nod Jack Lambert, the Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker, I think had turf toe and it stayed with him the rest of his career, so we thought You know what? Let's bring in somebody who knows what they're talking about. A former NFL offensive lineman won a Super Bowl with Washington a Harvard trained orthopedic doctor, mark addicts and good to have you back on here, Doc. So Do you want us to tell you what we think Turf toe is and then you could probably correct us on this. That'd be great. Let's see what you guys got. Let's see how good you are. All right. I'll start with you, Paulie. What do you think your toe is like a ligament sprain in the toe that hampers an athlete from pushing off like sprinting like running for two. You got a definition for church to one's toe was so severely sprained from the pounding on the torture that it does something. What kind of disconnects Tito from the other toes and needs to be surgically fix a snap back into place. All right, Seaton It is an injury that when, uh, say like wide receivers are going to get their second foot in and they drag it along the left their toes on the turf, and then it gets hurt like that. No, I did not. I did not even look at it that way. Yes, my club, So I thought it was a rug burn style injury from any time she goes on the worse when you're playing with your kids of rug burn, but I do believe it's out. Now ligament underneath your toe that connects to the foot. Okay, let's let's bring in. Doc and Doc. What exactly is Turf toe. Well, I think I think example one wins the ligament injury so it could be a ligament injury. Or it could be an injury to the planter plate, which is almost like a Cartlidge thing That's on the bottom of it, So it is the big toe joint. And it rarely. Is it an injury? There were quite a surgery. The bass majority of players don't require surgery in the NFL there have been about there was a study that was done that had about 30 guys with serfdom. Injuries that were pretty severe, and only about 10% ended up requiring some surgery. Deon Sanders did require surgery. Deon Sanders Strip toe injury did end his career. Essentially, he stuck around for a couple more years, but never really was the same. Antonio Gates had it had a pretty bad turf toe had surgery in 2000 and eight and played Many years was very productive after that injury in surgery, So generally speaking guys, too, Okay. I think John was as his foot with a test was an extreme case. Didn't Mahomes play the Super Bowl with a Tauron ligament? Certainly did. I mean, I In other words, when you have a tip toe injury there, three grades break one. Great, too Great three. It's the same for almost anything. Great one, just a few of the fibers or tourney. Great to a bunch more. Tauron. Great three. It's completely disrupted. So for someone to need surgery generally, there's got to be a little bone chip. It's in the joint or the toe has to be somewhat unstable, which would tell you that that ligament tear had to be pretty significant.
Can Tampa Bay Win A Second Straight Super Bowl
"Well in just his first season with the team brady has already brought a title to tampa buccaneers controlled. Much of last night's thirty one to nine super bowl win and brady is poised to keep winning saying after the game quote. We're coming back. You know that we do know it. And i personally love it shared. And how do you feel about is brady. Started his second dynasty in tampa skip out of his tour to detail. And if you made me say yes to say no. There's a reason why no team had repeated and sixteen years because it's hard to do and you see. Injuries are big part of this. So because we saw what happened to chiefs offensive line. They lose basically three starters and they're not the same team that they took to the super bowl the previous year. They're not even the same super bowl that would that finish the afc championship game. So injuries player key role in And plus a lot of things have to go well the injuries during the course of the season. I don't believe the pandemic. I think we're getting more and more vaccines arm and President biden was talking about last night. Say i expect the pike house for super bowl fifty six. Hopefully that's the case. Where is so fi here. Oh you're be out. I thought i'd be right over luma and plus get if you think about it. They got shack bags. A free agent. Labonte david i believe. They bite price themselves out of contracts tampa although they might be willing to take less money to come back to people. It's with jack man. Considering that he was an undrafted free agent and leave any money on the table of. Aren't they david that might be something dominant. So leonard fournette and tonio brown gronk. I believe a couple of those guys you can get back on the cheap but skipped the only have thirty guys on the contract for next year. The next is a that is forty two in the nfl their fifty three man roster only thirty the contract So who comes. Who goes is so hard to repeat because the turnover is so great now what we know right now for the most part. All the coaches are coming back. Tob old didn't get a job by relent. We didn't get a job and so for what we can see right. Now get the coaching staff. We'll be back in full. There was some speculation. That bruce arians if they won this one would would see the the head coaching to talk balls and maybe either being the background or walk into the sunset. I think this was such a headache experience for him at his age. He'd say i gotta take another shot. Hey could you remember. Meal did that and he later regretted he came. Back out of retirement ended up coaching kansas city. Yeah because he felt he made a decision out of emotion. That was the wrong decision. So maybe a fist back a couple of months but it's hard to repeat. There's a reason why there have only been in an full of teams now in the last thirty years. That's ever done it because it's so hard to cobb was dated. We did it and the patriots did it.
Tom Brady and Tampa Bay Buccaneers Beat the Chiefs
"His team to the Super Bowl and winning it last year, Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes Was just 26 for 49, with 270 yards, passing no touchdowns, Two interceptions in the chief's 31 9 lost to Tampa Bay and Super Bowl 55 yesterday said the box had a good game plan to stop The chief's offense, man to get game plan that kind of took away all deep stuff. They took away the sidelines and they did a good job around into the football on making tackles. We? We weren't We weren't shooting early. If you miscues, guys weren't we weren't on the same page. But I mean credit to them and they played. They played a heck of a game defensively and offensively, Indeed, us. As for
Super Bowl LV: How Tom Bradys Bucs Upset The Chiefs
"Bill. It is eleven twenty nine pm eastern and we made it. We have arrived at our final late sunday night session of the nfl season. I think you're showing the appropriate level of enthusiasm. Just watch ill. Barnwell has been our. Nfl oracle through low. These many football weeks you can catch wisdom on the bill. Barnwell show podcast and his monday column on. Espn plus bill. I know i'm washed. I knew that coming in. But tonight i also discovered that i'm like had to close my eyes because the weekend halftime show is making me wash so on top of these horrific super bowl. We ended up getting an. I'm also just the opposite of tom brady. In every sort of genetic sense it turns out. There were so many songs i've heard in uber's or biggest when i was like. Oh that's who does that song. That sucks i. i'm. I'm okay with that songs now. I really learned a lot during the halftime show. Not sure i learned so much during the actual game l. If i mean it just in thinking about what are most notable takeaway or the the moment remember from the super bowl will be years from now it comes down to maybe mccall hardman lining up full yard offsides on a field goal. Try tony romo. Getting very excited about a streaker. In the fourth quarter of lot where he was trying to will the game to be competitive was a a complete and utter dominant victory by the buccaneers and was an upset but the thoroughness of the whole thing and the repetitive nature. What happened from series and series for possession possession. Really just sort of by the end of the game. Everyone knew what the story was because it was really office so it did feel a times bill like we were getting. Tom brady playing his hits. But before we pay our respects at the altar of brady and all of his non washington is. I want to ask how exactly kansas city. Patrick mahomes looked this helpless. Because that's what was shocking to me too twenty seventeen before mahomes was a starter in the league to find a game where the chiefs had been. Shut out of the end zone entirely before tonight. So how did the buccaneers. How defensive coordinator. Todd bowles stopped. One of the most unstoppable offenses. We ever seen it. Was you know sort of a game. Plan out of the nineteen sixties. Winning at the line of scrimmage and dominating upfront and you know. I don't want to exaggerate. Wanted to subscribe to recency bias. But i have to admit i'm not sure i've ever seen an offensive line. Get beaten badly over the course of an entire game as the chiefs were by the buccaneers on sunday. Night me last year in the super bowl we saw nick bosa and the forty niners really dominate the chiefs from most of the first three quarters were on pace to win that game but fourth quarter. Nick bosa got tired. And patrick mahomes turn things around very quickly. The chiefs launched forward scored a bunch of touchdowns and won the super bowl. And this time around. We were sort of waiting for that moment right and it never happens. The buccaneers pressure mahomes on virtually every single meaningful past play. This game often

Man, It is eyes exciting and getting ready for this big game. A man I'll tell you what. When you look at how this one is going to play out, everybody is focusing on the quarterback's rightfully so. But when you start looking at a couple of the individual matchups in this game, there is a lot that ends up coming into play. And one of the things that everybody's been focusing on all week is the fact that the chief's dinged up on the offensive line going with backups there against a really strong past Russian. It Defense for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That seems at least right now to be one that's playing at its peak. Is that the key matchup in your mind? Well, that is one of them. I mean, we look at the Bucks defense and we've seen what they looked like the last couple of weeks and listen. Todd Bowles, Their defensive coordinator, has really got them dialed in. They've gotten after, and Rogers drew Brees and, you know, I think this defense is going to be, you know, formidable when it comes to getting after Patrick Mahomes, but You know, he's such a great quarterback. He's such a guy that can get out of situations that you don't think he could get out off s. Oh, that's gonna be a challenge for this team as well. When you look at it, and from your perspective, especially, I mean a running back a hall of Fame running back and very rarely these days is anybody say, Well, the running game is going to be a really big part of this. It seems like that's becoming an antiquated idea. Can the running game for the chief's help in some way, take away some of the aggressiveness of the Tampa Bay defense? Yeah, I believe so, Scott, because you know all the focus of this game really is gonna be on the chief's weapons, right? You know, you got obviously Tyree Kill Travis Kelsey. Then you have the other guys out there to me, Cole Harmon. And then you have Clyde. That was the lair who last year was an El s. You had a phenomenal national championship game, and I think a game like this is going to bode well for him, because if you're tired of those, you can't double team everybody. Somebody's got to have one on ones. And if you're the bucks, you've got to put more people in coverage. So that's gonna leave a light box for Clyde Edwards. He layer not only running but the short passing game, and I think that Eric the enemy, and Anne Rie will find a way to make this young man have an impact in a game like this. On the other side. Everybody, of course, is focusing on Tom Brady. I mean, he got them here, and he is once again right in the middle of the possibility of winning a super books. 10th visited pressure absurd, absurd. When you look at this team, they've got a whole bunch of weapons as well. Is there one that you focus on the offensive side of the ball for Tampa Bay? That you think might have a bigger impact in this game than another? I do. I think it's actually Leonard for net and not necessarily in the running game. But little has been Really good and their passing game, And I think that kind of matchup between Leonard for Net and the linebacker Damian Will Wilson and Anthony Hitchens from the chief's, because when you start doing that thing where they played in week, 12 Barnett had a decent game, but Ronald Jones caught the ball in the flat and was able to have a long touchdown score from that ball that was thrown into the flat. So no one is talking about that. But I think that again, Hitchens and Wilson is gonna have to have a really good game and not again. It's not with him running with the football. He's been a threat as a receiver, which is something that his game is never had. So I think, you know, Of course. Tom Brady likes to get his backs involved in games like this member James White. He had a phenomenal Super Bowl. So I think later for now is gonna be a guy that's gonna have to have a huge impact. Last thing for this segment does the first meeting have any impact on what we're about to see in a few hours here or is that just research? Yeah, I think you could take some things. Most coaches look at the game and they kind of take The things that sort of worked, you know, everything goes. She kind of just you pick things of a game and say Okay, well, we have success against his team before. You know, we'll try to do it again this time, but maybe we're gonna disguise it a little differently, but run the same kind of plays. So, yeah, I think you there's things that each team can take from that meeting. But, you know, I think it's about who can make those adjustments and going into this game. I think ultimately it's going to be the team that comes out

LeBron James Doesn't Want an All-Star Game
"A lebron. james spoke yesterday. We talked about the all star game. And how dare fox. It said it's stupid to even think about playing it and lebron seconded that motion. Here's what he had to say. I have zero energy and zero excitement about an all star game this year. I don't even understand why we're having all star game But this there agreement at the players association came about we were told that we were not having all star game so we had a nice little break. Five days from fifty two tampa for me to recalibrate for the second half of the season. My teammates will they throw all star game on this and his brakes all the way also pretty kind of slider face man you know. I'll be there from selected But i'll be there physically but mentally.
Defense could be decisive in Super Bowl of dynamic offenses
"Film has been watched the game plan is set and practices have been concluded so now it's up to the Kansas City Chiefs to check off the final box win their second straight Superbowl to do that quarterback Patrick Mahomes knows that he must use his talented receivers to get points at every opportunity Adam those guys that are that are physical but they're also extremely fast it puts defenses and our danger spots I mean that when they want to bring pressure and you see how we do so well against pressures artist does I need the bottom I think quickly in these guys make plays happen on defense the chiefs realize that the first order of business is to put pressure on Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady I'm Tom Aikens
Tips on buying a TV for the Super Bowl
"This is the best time of the year for me. Because it's almost time for the super bowl and my team the kansas city chiefs trying to go back to back and defeat. Tom brady and the tampa bay buccaneers to get their second straight super bowl title as washington. Football team fan. I am in misery right now because we haven't been to a super bowl since i don't know forever but anyway it's also a great time of year to shop for tv. Traditionally the days leading up to the super bowl come just behind black friday and holiday sales of the most tv purchases across the us. That's right it's. It's a good time to upgrade your tv or display and for some more insights. Were lucky enough to have our colleague ryan. Who is the managing editor for electronics. Reviewed. hey ryan thanks for being with us. Thought you might have some advice to share with shoppers. Who might be thinking about getting a new. Tv with the big game coming up this weekend. Hey guys So fun to be here. I am very upset because you're a cheese fan. And i'm a broncos fan and I am now looking down. The spiral of losses for maybe. I don't know the rest of our football lives. Because patrick mahomes is probably gonna pay for twenty years. But that's not what we're here to talk about. I suppose we should talk about it if we might even lose breath you daren't chiefs fans anyway. It is a great time to buy a tv. There are few great times in the year. But why this is such a great time to buy a tv is because there are really good deals as these new. Tv's are coming out. They are trying to get these quote unquote old. Tv's off of shelves or out of their internet stockpiles so they are wheeling and dealing. Somebody's tv's and another good thing about why now is a great time. Particularly after twenty twenty is a lot of the. Tv's in two thousand twenty some of those new features that people look for future-proof tv like two point one hdmi of variable refresh rates for gaming. So you're actually getting a lot of the complete package in a tv. That is you know has an older year date but that really doesn't matter. It's like buying a car at the end of the year. Or you know in january if you can get on the shelves. You're going to get a really good deal on it so one of the biggest questions. It always comes up when you're buying a tv is how big do you go. What advice do you give consumers who are trying to figure out the right size. Tv to buy all the advice. I usually give consumers is if you think it's probably a little too big then you are probably right on the money because i have never talked to somebody who bought you know a fifty five or sixty five inch tv And then we're really upset. About how big. The picture looks and especially now when you can't go to a movie theater. People are loving these bigger screens now. Of course there's an aesthetic. You know thing to balance here whether or not. It's just gonna look too darn big for your living room but other than that again. You're not gonna be upset by having a bigger brighter picture. That's a that's a good answer. That's what i always tell my friends and my wife. Also if you're going to buy a tv don't short out. Can i mean if you can afford. It gets to the point. How much should people spend. I've done a little research on this. And the average person spends under four hundred dollars on the tv. I would like to spend a little bit more when i buy my next one. What would you recommend people. The average person spend ryan. Well you know it really does depend on what you're looking for but again if you're looking for that big punch you don't have to spend a crazy amount of because there are so many new technologies and some really up and coming companies. A lot of people have probably heard about. Tcl's six series tv by now. If you're shopping at all it is sort of the quintessential roku tv that people love to get it. Packs a bunch of performance punch into a very nice price point however if you are looking to get something even bigger and you look into say around that lower price point around four hundred but you know maybe you can go a little bit higher you can get. Tcl's four series which is not quite as good performance wise but it is going to opera four k. It is going to offer hdr which is going to give you that brightness and a wider color gamut and it's going to pop a little bit more and you can get a seventy five inch model of that right now For instance on best buy for six hundred and thirty bucks. Six hundred thirty dollars i mean. Can you imagine we've been around a while. You imagine getting tv that size for like anything less than three grand even five years ago. I'm not. I'm not gonna do the math exactly but it's it's pretty wild. How low it's gotten. It really is incredible And you mentioned best buy. There's an unfortunately in the world. Tv buying we've lost a lot of local tv shops or audio video shops So a lot of people do their buying online. But as we're getting close to the game it seems like you may want to think about going local at this point right. Well you could. I you know i think that is a great point. It'd probably depends on how close you are to a prime shipper if you're going to do it from amazon but one thing to do and i did this recently with a different product purchase. Is you can shop on best buy and then order it to pick up in store. They'll usually do curbside avoids the pandemic issue they can. They will bring it right out to your car and slap it in the back and then you're good to go so i think that's if you're looking to stop right now right before the game. That's probably your best way to go ryan. Thanks again for being with us and for the listeners. Out there working. They find out more info on buying a tv for the super bowl. Yeah we've got Reviews on many of these. Tv's on review dot com. You can also check out our best of tv list and sliver other best of that have Show all the great deals and compare all these. You can kind of you know you. You do your shopping right from home and then hopefully get it right before the
Tom Brady or Patrick Mahomes: Who will win Super Bowl LV?
"Well patrick mahomes is going for his second straight super bowl in already has plenty of game winning. Drive experience on the flip side. Is tom brady. Who's going for his seventh super bowl win ten trips and has the most experienced leading a team to victory in lake game. Super bowl drives so shannon. Who would you rather have on the final drive to win the game mahomes or brady skjei bile understand. Tom brady the understand what he's accomplished. I understand how great he's been for such a long time. But if you tell me right now. I'm going to take patrick mahomes. He's the best player in the game and he's been in these big moments before three double digit comeback last year. One in the super bowl had a nine point comeback fisher in which you won the game and in the postseason this year. Patrick mahomes had the ball fifteen times. He's punted once. He's turned it over none seven touchdowns four field goals midfield goal in to. Neil doubt. that's what he's done. This postseason so i understand brady historic and would like you. Say it's six touchdown. Six bolt with six game winning drives and a lot of those the super bowl but are some afc championship game there. Some some regular. Some playoff games and tom brady has been great but given where mahomes right now and what he's capable of doing. I feel very comfortable entrusting him. This is okay. So you're ready to take the keys. Get on the interstate and dry for yourself. So i'm gonna take patrick mahomes
Chiefs' barber tested positive for COVID-19
"To my sources at this particular time, it appears 20 of the Kansas City Chiefs almost went to get here cuts on Sunday from Barber, who had Cove it now they've taken precautions, and the truth of the matter is that everything is going to be fun. I saw Schefter tweeted that he's like that. It's he's like it's all okay. They were They were they were they? What was I gonna look it up? Because I looked at it, and it was like, Wait, wait, wait. This doesn't sound is safe as you're making it sound and, uh, did you get so you guys saw? That s so what's the tweet? Well, let's say it's easy to find if you didn't have 700 tweets a day. Yeah, there were over 20 Chiefs, players and staffers, including quarterback Patrick Mahomes schedule Sunday to get a haircut with the barber who tested positive for Cove. It Her sources. Of course. The chief's acted Wisely and aggressively and pulled the barber mid cut once his test results came in. Now, I would have to say If if they were that weighs an aggressive, they probably should have waited until his test results came back to even start the haircuts. You
"patrick mahomes" Discussed on The Lead
"patrick mahomes" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Mr Bill Barnwell himself and Bill I wanted to have you on today. Because I thought no one, did a better job breaking down Patrick mahomes making half a billy, at least that was the headline, but when you started diving into this deal with him and the chiefs that was record-breaking. What ultimately does this? Deal. Look like and how's it going to change the league? Yeah I mean you know it's GonNa be a lot of money like that. Let's let's leave that part of. He's going to get rich one way or another. I think he's GonNa make. A million dollars over the next twelve years. Just don't think it's going to be totally under this deal. It's really kind of two separate six year contracts six year, one hundred eighty million dollar deal in that range, and then six years for the rest, which is about three hundred twenty million dollars, or so so I think because of the structure of the deal. Deal because of the way that the money is guaranteed I think it's likely, but after six years the two sides go back to the table and say hey, you know. He might be a bargain at that point, even though he's making fifty million dollars a year, so I think they're going to go back and restructure maybe a year or two. You know just. Just, Kinda make it a different sort of contract so I don't think he's going to be sitting here for twelve years on this contract, but he's GonNa make a ton of money whether it's five hundred, fifty, six, hundred was going to be making more than a half billion dollars over the next twelve years. If he stays healthy and I think I don't know. Know what you guys think boy I write about this contract. I started thinking okay well. Is there anybody else in the NFL? Who could justify this sort of contract? And my answer was? No, I don't think there's anybody else who could sit here and ask the sort of deal who I'd feel good about handing the same sort of contract which speaks to. How little it might change in some ways, but also just how uniquely Special Patrick Mahomes is now. What about Lamar Jackson? If Lamar Jackson has the season like Patrick Mahomes Patrick Mahomes had a great year. They ended up not winning the super. Bowl comes back. He wins it if Lamar. Jackson takes the Ravens. The Super Bowl in wins it. Could we not see Lamar cash in on a deal? I mean if you want to, you know. I think if that happens any wants it i. don't see how the Ravens would say no I couldn't fault them for giving him an contract. He's an incredible player. I think he's so smart with how he uses his body to keep himself healthy. He gets out of balance doesn't take necessary hits, but he's still running quarterback. He's still gonNA take. Its than you know, Patrick mahomes would or to Shawn Watson would or You know I any of the guys who really you know are not running as frequently. Ask Lamar does and I. think that's you know I think he's a great pocket passer I think he can be that guy. You know being effective guy if he's not running much, he does, but I think the offense. He's in calls for him to do that, so you know. Would I be uncomfortable with the Ravens giving Lamar Jackson the same amount of money on a yearly basis, not a lot. I think yes I totally fine, but. Would I want guarantee him money ten years now I'd be a little nervous and I think nothing against Lamar Jackson. It's just the nature of being a running quarterback in the. NFL is different than being back from homes. Who is a guy who occasionally runs? But it's really more of a you know a passer. Mentioned to Shawn Watson. Take this up further. How does mahomes his contract impact Dak Prescott and Watson moving forward? I don't think it does that much. Because those guys both lunch shorter contracts really want a three year extension Maybe a four year deal you know. Maybe we'll get a five year deal. It's hard to say they want. They don't want a ten year contract or a twelve year contract. So you look at the money. Patrick Mahomes is making over the first five years of this deal. It's about a hundred forty million dollars somewhere in the twenty eight million dollar a year range which. Dak Prescott is going to get more than that that. I got was already expecting against somewhere around thirty, four or thirty five million dollars a year so. You know I don't think it's really gonNA end up being comparable because you know, I don't think the cowboys will sit here and say hey, let's pay less money. Because Patrick Mahomes took less money front because he's getting so much guaranteed down the line and from dockside. He doesn't really have that desire to get the same sort of length contracts so You know I think if anything it's sort of help. Those teams because patch roles are taking a three year deal for a massive amount of money that would have been a much more direct comparable than the deal. He actually ended up getting sir. So how does this affect Chris Jones and what? He wants to accomplish in his deal. Yeah this actually a really good thing for the chiefs, because they did not change the cap situation at all by signing this extension for the next two years Patrick. mahomes has pretty much identical cap. That's what he would have had if they had not signed him to an extension and twenty twenty and twenty twenty one so now, if the Chiefs Twenty Gay Chris Jones deal done, they can do it they. They can't afford it on their cap over the next couple years. Depending on how they structure it if they wanNA resigned Travis Kelsey WHO's coming out for free agency. They can do that and get that without having to worry about impacting their cap so because they were willing to guarantee so much money down the line, they were able to get pretty friendly terms over the next three years really..

If I'm the enemy I, stay right there so i. want to be the person to put this on wax. Not only do. They have their head coach. They have their next head coach along with the quarterback. All of those weapons you just put up on the screen, and by the way the guaranteed money Jacobin Patrick Mahomes. NBA. If. He's if he eight. Average per year. All of a sudden the quarterback position this becomes a game changer because above, average, forty, five, the biggest number, five hundred and the lengthy number ten years. Dole's are the things that make it game changing as we move forward to see, high affects other quarterbacks employers moving forward. And he deserves this. He absolutely deserves this. He is the most exciting young quarterback arguably Lamar Jackson, but one of the things about this is you get this kind of ten year deal when you just won the Super Bowl, because if you remember this was a close Super Bowl Patrick. Mahomes got ball, told his teammates. Here and then did exactly that this is a fourth and fifteenth. If this is not a completion. This win the Super Bowl. He doesn't get this kind of money. So after you perform like that in the super bowl on that stage, a kiss, Lombardi trophy. That's when you go to the negotiating table and say ten years over four hundred million dollars, and they're say fine, you go. Here's the deal. What an amazing amazing job that they have! An individual player. Also. While forty plus million people have filed for unemployment. We're dealing in a pandemic with the corona.

We're trying to figure it out. And then all of a session. Patrick mahomes comes in China. Say Him you find a way to figure it out just. Built everybody out. Half a billion. Here's another question. This doesn't just benefit the mahomes family. WHO's going to be set for quite some time? This also benefits some others waiting to get their contracts. People like Dak Prescott. You'd like to Shawn Watson in a couple of years Lamar Jackson. What do you think they're on the phone telling their? Right now. They like good looking. That day on the phone with their agents, they patch mahomes. That's what they're doing because in theory. He set the bar at three different ways Jacoby. That's what I mean. You could be one of those guys and be Dacca's and say, or you can be Lamar. For the years you know morning to three or four years or they? Could be like I wanna go for average. You know you could be a guy like the Shawn Watson. His situation is like y'all got to give me the years. Average. Or mouth because I normal franchise quarterback, so it's GonNa. Be Interesting to see how it progresses moving forward, but you will be seeing players as this deal age actually at some point, make more than he's making. That's just how this works. We will see. There has been about four or five other contracts in the history of the NFL that have been this length of all of those most have been quarterbacks. If not all none of those finish their career on that team, we will see if Patrick. Mahomes is different. Well one player that's not going to finish his season on his team's a gentleman by the name of Bradley Beal has announced that he will not be going to Orlando to play the bubble. He said at a shoulder injury. Jalen, one thing I've noticed. Is that players on teams that don't have legitimate chances going? Much more likely to have little injuries that keep them out of the bubble. What do you think? When you in essential worker, you need to pay all your bills. You take more chances going to work. If you have a nest egg into money in the bank and you still get unemployment. You consider whether you want to go to work enough. In Bradley beal averaged almost thirty this year dealing with a shoulder issue, they won't have John Wall is just not in his long term. Best interest of being Orlando Plan basketball in the. Well another player that would not be joining. The bubble will join a lot of his teammates. Not Coming to the bubble netted Spencer, Dinwiddie who was on the fence earlier. He is now announced that he is not going to Orlando. The Nets have committed as a franchise to field a team in Orlando. Is it at this point as I? Said earlier the maybe they shouldn't.

That was the right decision vision and it was a long drought process started off as a third round grade. I was getting by the at the Advisory Board and ended up getting drafted tiptoe girl you know. I will always think also as fortunate as you were to get drafted in Kansas City. And have Andy Reid there. I can't imagine go into a better situation. Shen than playing with Alex Smith for year and Andy told me after the championship game that that Alex Smith had texted him after the game. He said the kid played phenomenal. You know it's amazing.

"Entire conversation about twenty eight twenty nine minutes worth with Patrick. Mahomes the Super Bowl. Mvp I wrote about him in my column this week a week after the super bowl and I recorded our conversation to play on this podcast odd cast and you'll hear that coming up a couple of observations on Mahomes I think is you will hear in his you seen with him so far. He's twenty four years old. He's very careful and his he's not going to be a real colorful interview interview or anything like that. He's going to answer the questions as best he can without being Very controversial but I you'll learn a lot about his approach to this game and about how he was able to come back in the second half after a basically in the fourth quarter after really having a Lotta shaky moments in his first fifty minutes. So you'll learn Matt and I'll I'll also also just say that in advance of you listening to this. I think you will enjoy -joy how to me. Patrick mahomes raised because I think he had a dad who was very very a AH in tune with making sure that everything about his upbringing. If he was ever GonNa play sports he was going to understand. Understand what it took and what kind of person and competitor you need to be to really succeed in professional sports. So you'll hear about that. Helier some stories about the Sioux Falls canaries and and about Alex Rodriguez and things like that. So I hope you enjoy that conversation and we'll get to that in a minute but first I wanted to talk just for a few minutes about the XFL bill and what happened in the first weekend of the XFL. A little bit of history. I I was at the first game ever in XFL XFL history nineteen years ago. Obviously this is the second iteration of the XFL the first one which opened a much pomp and circumstance. At Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas in two thousand one. I was there covering the game for sports illustrated along with Leigh. Montville the legendary writer from Boston. And what I what I remember about that game and I'm going to tell. Oh you just a little bit about that just so that you understand and have a little bit of perspective about what we saw this past weekend. First of all that game at a college stadium in Las Vegas. There's thirty thousand people who came the late-arriving in crowd. A lot of people just got excited the last few minutes or the last few days leading up to the game and the the the Line Ryan of cars leading to Sam Boyd Stadium just before kick-off reminded me of the line of cars in field of dreams. Remember that you know where if you build it. They will come. And the line of cars leading to that field in Dyer's Ville Iowa Toward the end of that movie. That's what it was like that night in Vegas. Yo Vince. McMahon the wrestling IMPRESARIO and. NBC's Dick Ebersol were there Because this was going to be a Combo platter between the XFL and NBC. And that's really what this was to this. This was a this is a made for made for TV football league and that first weekend was really pretty amazing the XFL NFL had a crowd of thirty thousand in Vegas. They have thirty five thousand in Birmingham Alabama. They had thirty. Eight Thousand Rosen at then PAC bell park in San Francisco to see San Francisco and Los Angeles. Play a sell out in San Francisco Oh nfl city. And I I said wow this is this really has got a chance. The ratings were phenomenal. They did a ten point three rating seventeen seventeen share in the United States on the first night of the XFL. What's so amazing about that? I think is is that think about it that basically is the rating of a good regional Game in the NFL today so they they had got a lot of is on that first game and so let's fast forward to today and you know they had four games in this new iteration of the XFL. They all drew in the seventeen thousand range. None of them drew as many as twenty thousand Some of the stadiums. You know it's I think it's ridiculous for the New York franchise to be playing at metlife stadium in New Jersey. Just look like they didn't sell any tickets in the upper deck in the lower bowl it almost looked like just confetti being thrown it. Just it just didn't didn't look good. They'd be much better off playing their games at the Red Bulls Stadium in Harrison New Jersey. or or at a you know or at a say at rutgers or something like that because it just looks awful when you play a game at a giant stadium no pun intended attended here with this is obviously where the New York giants play so The crowds were modest but I thought the crowd at the Washington game. They played at Audi already stadium where the Washington. MLS team plays the soccer team and it looked great. It looked enthusiastic. It was eighty five percent. Full was a big excited crowd and look like a a cool atmosphere for a game But I just think that one of the things that really kind of hurts the TV product is when you're playing in a giant huge stadium radium and it looks like there's nobody there. That was my first observation. I think the second observation is that you have to ballistic. I actually think it's good that this integration of the of the XFL didn't have the TV crowds that they had nineteen years ago of the ESPN Rating of this game basically was that the crowd watching the the first game this weekend. Basically peaked at four million and averaged about three point. Three million. That's a nice ice crowd very nice. TV crowd to To have and I also think that certainty enthusiasm. The League on social. Media is good social media really didn't exist in two thousand one obviously so there was no twitter no instagram to share all this stuff enough And also they have a benefit of being able to talk about and promote gambling right now where they used to not be able to do do that but severi big but I tell you this little history lesson for very simple reason in two thousand thousand one the XFL lasted one year and although they were convinced at the start of it they were going to give it a real shot a three year trial and they had a major network. NBC and Vince McMahon man with very deep pockets. And you hear everything right now about the XFL saying we're in this for three years. We're going to give this a real legitimate zhitnik shot and I don't doubt that that's what they believe right now and for all of those people who love football for all those his players who want to give a football another chance in their lives great. I think it's fantastic. The only thing I would say he is. They're going to have to battle against what everybody battles when they try to start a spring football league and the only one that it had a remote amount of success was the USFL which died thirty five years ago. So I think before everybody. Everybody gets way too excited about this. Just realize that the only way that this league will work the only only way is evinced McMahon Oliver Luck in those who are at the head of this project if they mentally say to themselves we are in this and will be willing to lose two or three hundred million dollars because the only way that you're going to have a chance is with staying power is with telling people. Hey listen we're going to show up here next week. It if we ever crowd of six thousand one week we don't care we will be back next weekend. You're not going to get rid of us. That's the only way because these leagues fail when you start to get into the dog days of the first year it's why the AF failed you get into the dog days and and the money is it's a money pit. You're throwing money money away the only way the XFL will work is if they are willing in essence to be a loss leader her for a good solid two to three years and not even think of getting rid of the product until you've played two to three years and understand that staying power is what makes a good league. So let's go. You want to our conversation with Patrick Mahomes. I recorded it while he was on his way home from the gym. Last Friday which was five days after the Super Bowl? And you'll hear Patrick mahomes right here here. We Patrick Mahomes Patrick. It's we're as we record this on Friday morning four or five days after the Super Bowl. Has Your Life changed. What's your life been and like this week?.

"Yeah I mean God forbid man you hope that we get another decade of this and we we get to see this kind of football for the next ten fifteen years. I mean my home said in during one of the post game interviews that I thought I was going to be a baseball player. His father was a major league pitcher right so for him him. Football wasn't even a given when he was in high school. They said he played basketball too. that he was like a really good point guard. So yeah man I mean it is all the stuff that we talk Cabana terms of life just trying different sports not winnowing. Your windows very early. I really loved these dudes who did not just because a quote identity politics but because of their roots to the game and how they were resilient and Kinda stuck to their own little particular paths. It just shows that there's so many different kinds of ways to play football. They don't all have to look Matt Barkley guys. While moms has a little bit of ways to go a few wants to catch Jimmy. Garoppolo in terms of Super Bowl rings dropping scoreboard Dan but Mahanta on his way so everybody talks about. We're going to see them again. I mean Payton. Manning has to one of them when he was like a deeply compromise. Do Air Rogers. One one. John John Elway went to Dan Marino. Never won any like we can't take these things for granted it may never happen again and so we really should appreciate it because like if you just cannot take for granted especially in football that had mahomes is going to be here again on top of the NFL. So Kudos to him. Andy Reid that they got it done this year. Because you just never know Joel. had to run but Stefan we must press on and what better way to press on than on the tennis court. On Sunday and Melbourne Novak Djokovic fell behind two sides to Wanda Dominic team and the final of the Australian Open. He looked mentally out of it. He looked physically compromised and then suddenly finally he was neither of those things. Jovic won the last two sets six three and six four to win his eighth Ozzy Oban in eight finals. Seventeenth Grand Slam lamb overall. That's two behind Nidal and three behind Federer. Jovic beat veteran. The Semis for the all time Grand Slam title lead joining us. Now is Louisa Thomas of the New Yorker Louisa. Hey and your piece. After the men's fine all you wrote referring to Jovic. Is there any modern athlete. who better reflects and in in some strange way seems to understand the connection between the mind and the body As I noted that connection was a little bit on the Fritz in the middle of the match against team then he got it back again. It's sort of amazing. He had what was pretty clearly a mental lapse after he was called for two-time violations in one game and in which he hit a double fault and sort of went off the rails a bit and suddenly it was like this little mental blip was in his feet he was in his arm and then it was. Maybe he wasn't feeling well and then maybe he was dehydrated and he was sort of frantically on the sidelines eating different things in recalibrating sodium levels. Or who knows what you know. He does to sort of get the machine back in order but it was pretty clear that whatever had momentarily momentarily affected him mentally with suddenly kind of having a physical effect and I think that that's something that he throughout his kind of searching for some sort of way wave like being in the world who does a lot of yoga he's like very intimate very kind of peace love but at the same time. He's someone who's very kind of driven to perfectly recalibrate everything he eats. Everything breeze drinks. How many times he chooses? Who all of this kind of obsessive gain an edge and? I think that he does see this kind of really profound connection between how. He's feeling mentally how he's moving and and in sort of weirdly works for him did his mental breakdown over the time violations allegations. Did they feel justified to now. It was weird. It was really weird especially because this is not something that is. There is some indiscretion about win. The umpires starts the clock but there is now a like o'clock this posted so he could have very easily looked over and seen how much time he had to serve. This is not something that he has to guess. That is something that like. He was getting mad at the umpire for doing his job in the most basic way he's getting mad at time exactly he was mad at times. In fact unpire showed tremendous restraint in not giving him some sort of penalty for actually touching him which is not allowed Jovic went over to him very oddly tapped his shoe later. He said he didn't know about the role that you're not allowed to touch appears that seems pretty seasick to me and he also said he thought it was a very friendly tap but it was a very very odd gesture and the umpire. I think did exercise a lot of restraint and certainly discretion in letting battle by I have not and I think it would have been very easy for that. I'm part to do something I mean. Not only did he defend sorry Damien demand has the name. I I mean not only would he have been completely justified just on the foot tap alone but then Jovovich sits down and he gets all sarcastic with them. which if my recollection is not incorrect back? Other players have been penalized for this. This is the way that empires should actually act. He did a good job in not overreacting. So just because other empires have have have overreacted. And the past. That doesn't mean the Damian should have in this case Lewis. I found that it's often. I'm really hard to understand or know where see when players are physically compromised like in the Federal Sandra match and the quarterfinals federal kind of started to lose it in the second set before he went off the court for the medical time out and then he comes back and he's clearly moving slowly but there was a period of time in that match when Federer just started losing and it's like really hard to tell why she's like a quarter step slow slow and maybe just as the point belts. He's not able to get as much power on his shots. And it just starts to kind of accumulate as a a rally goes on on and it's interesting that even within the same match with the same player in the same opponent. It can be hard to tell exactly what's going on whether it's Meno whether it's physical whether it's Greiner a back or a leg and it's kind of humbling as an observer tonight even to not be able to understand that as a little uncertain athletes will go out of their our way to not let you know what's going on you know they'll keep the poker face they will not want to portray any weakness. They don't WanNa give up any blood in the water but I the joke of it is not like that. I think joke someone who does express himself a little bit more freely. Some people you know do bridal at that are. That's unprofessional some people. I think that that's very cute. You know this is how he's feeling. And why does everyone need to be like middle. Who doesn't want to betray any hint of human failing so I think that that's part of it? I also think that you know that also speaks to how find these margins are I mean if you do have some sort of element that makes you slow down half stop. That's the difference between a rally shot in the winner so I think sometimes there are certain tells Something that a lot of people talk about is like serve speed will drop in and you can see how much they're able to push their legs. Certain things will hinder them in certain specific ways and you can sort of look at those movements in those actions and see how they're affected affected but this is actually a case in which even Jovic was pretty open about God. He didn't really know what was going on. It was just this weird short-circuiting this system that that he was sort of was able to sort of like recover from in this in this kind of superhuman way but was very oddly affecting him and you said recovered in an effective way. I mean it was sort sort of like tried everything I mean. It was an energy GEL. Pack were dates. There was a banana there were how many different drinks like three. This is one of my favorite parts of the sort of like frantic. And he wasn't just like drinking them he was frantically guzzling a medical timeout. So the trainer came out. The doctor came out so he was clearly aware that the system is not functioning properly and the instant recovery was kind of remarkable. I mean I don't know whether that's is that the energy gels or was it the extra few minutes to try to recalibrate what was going on in his mind but the match turned completely. I mean team was good. We'll team wasn't bad. Even when Jovic level was kind of moving up and down more than teams was right. Let's talk about team. Australian twenty six years old has now lost in three major finals. All of which are kind of facing insane playing Rafael Nidal in the French Open. Final twice something Jovovich and the Australian Open final. None of those guys have ever lost in any of those contacts wrath has never lost a French final joke which is never lost just nausea and final Louisa after this match was over the like. ESPN ticker announcement of what had happened. Made me laugh. It said Golden Age of men's tennis continues and then the type under was no man born in the ninety S. That's I don't know if that's what golden age it's I think the point they're trying to make there is that and united and no new Grand Slam winners among the men since the two thousand fourteen. US Open the big three of Jovovich veteran. It all just keeps winning. All of these titles team is very very close to being on on their level. And I don't know if you would. You agree that like in terms of just pure physical skills and talent. You'd probably want teams shots and game right now over any of those guys absolutely. I mean there are couple of young players who have really exciting interesting games. I would put team at the top of the list but you know someone like to know method eh in the. US Open showed how kind of very unusual end uncomfortable game could be really effective and interesting to watch but yet teams game. I think is incredible. He's such heavy ball. He is so fast. And that's not something I'd really appreciate. It actually Intel watching him in this tournament in particular but he has his hands. Handsome actually was very effective at. I mean he is very good court coverage you know you could use a little bit of improvement on serve. But now I'm really being picky. The things that blacks are just the ability to win those handful of points in those certain moments the other guys seem to really have a stranglehold on. I mean it will go back to one thing this. This is really the first time that Jovic his appeared to be totally out of the match and come back in one he actually did this in the twenty fifteen Australian Open final against any Murray in any moves really Bothered by it. He talked about how distracting to him in the third set to watch joke. It's really kind of seem to stumble and almost come you punch drunk and then suddenly come back in and play Nintendo tennis basically and I think that you can fault for you know playing pasta or you can say that..

"The fewer points that you need to score to win later and by the the Garoppolo risk aversion because on that very same drive Dr. They did wind up throwing the ball long and taking a chance and George kiddle got called for offensive pass interference otherwise they have the ball down inside the fifteen yard hardline yet but that was a huge. I mean that was a surprise when it happened. It was like Oh God they actually took a shot with Garoppolo. Downfield almost paid off. I don't I just. I tend to think think that Shanahan was hamstrung by quarterback and maybe I'm being the reductive in the way that I don't want others to be but I do think that the chiefs make you scared and you like I. I don't WanNa do anything that's going to give them an opportunity. I'm not I don't WanNa give them more opportunity to talk about. I just want to hold the ball and try to ride it out. The other piece of this though is that they had every reason to believe that well you know what off pass rushes dominating the offensive line. Maybe we'll be able to keep that up in staffing. You mentioned earlier that we're going go back and figure out what happened with the chiefs offense in the first three quarters of the game. I guess I'm GonNa put this out here. Is it possible to pet. Mahomes was concussed or something was wrong with him that his that he had cobwebs because he got hit really hard a couple of times in that game and he didn't look right. You're right and we. Sometimes we just caught up. Forget like these guys is out there. Having to play with injuries playthrough injuries I remember after one of those hits near the goal line with the ball went out of bounds. I think Jimmy Ward that hit him in the ball flew out of bounds and I was like man it could have been worse but it was still hard. Hit any looked weird after it so I don't know man. It could have been something like that to that. They got him under control. We've got shook we. You don't have to do anything outside of what we normally do to win this game and I would doubt have been dumb if they thought there was a moment and the I think it was in the first half when Garoppolo got hit and threw an interception and the replay seem to indicate that he had his eyes closed so maybe that was an issue that he was just closing his vice and instead of having them them open. That's something to consider. I did look up quarterbacks throwing with their eyes closed and I found a story by Lee Jenkins and and the New York Times in two thousand five that explain the drew brees did drills with his eyes closed. A GAROPPOLO is taking it to the next level. I've actually bring to live of action intriguing. Approach Andy Reid the outpouring for him throughout the playoffs and then after the Super Bowl seems totally appropriate. And this is a guy who this is two hundred and twenty second when an as an NFL head coach she had a reputation earlier in his career. That was well earned for have his teams lose playoff games and frustrating fashion. A Lot of times after puzzling coaching decisions. Yeah but in this game Stephan. And whether it's because Andy Rita's changed his philosophy or whether because whether it's that personnel you know it's not like you know you had Michael Michael Vick and Donovan mcnabb before they're not bad or whether it's because the NFL in general is more aggressive on fourth down. The chiefs went for it on fourth down a couple a couple of times in the first half and it wasn't even considered like unusual or particularly aggressive. I mean that's where we are in the league now now and One of those plays that the chiefs ran was inspired by the nineteen forty eight rose bowl. The guys pure wedding and the backfield the direct snap to running back both aggressive and find and the chiefs. I feel like you know. Leaned in more to who they are and what they do and the forty niners went away from it. I mean that's kind of narrative talk but it's true. Yeah no I think it's totally true. There was a little bit of well actually about the nineteen forty eight rose Baldo. The Eric did say that they they were looking at these tapes and then on twitter there was a lot of well actually Notre Dame brand the similar fence in the nineteen twenties knute rockne eh but still like think I mean that's what I loved about. It was less like what the actual genesis of that formation was and more that there are coaches in the NFL that are looking at video from nineteen forty eight to come up with innovative. Klay ideas in twenty twenty. It's crazy and it's fun an and yes exactly Josh. The chiefs seemed to have more fun when they are playing even the period and need to do the pirouetting right they could have just slid over. which is what the nineteen eighteen? Forty eight clip play pure. Wet Little Distraction distraction so I knew admire that in with Andy Reid. I mean part of the outpouring of affection. Gene is what Andy Reid is always had this big Wilford Brindley dude right. And he's he's really sweet and players love him and he's not an asshole screaming being quizzing players about the history of the franchise kind of guy and setting crazy dumb rules. He is a much more genial thoughtful intellectual participatory coach and players like that. And when you deliver that approach the players they respond in a particular way that empowers them and they feel empowered. Whether are there actually empowered or not. or they're just executing plays is irrelevant. They feel like hey this is more fun and we have more freedom and it's more creative. I am curious. UJJAL would rather play for though. Because because for the chiefs the running game. Little more vestigial they'd Damian Williams had a a great game so it's like the the running game was her laughter thought the the forty niners maybe not as as genial and fun head coach but that guy can make anybody a thousand yard running back. The running game is king young coach. Oh how Shanahan. A young coach could relate to the goals of the world players of his generation. I wouldn't want to be is expendable as a running back appears to be the forty forty nine Matt Brita was the guy early start the next day or a Brita right. Yeah you could be just forgotten. Yeah I'd much rather there'd be in that Andy Reid offense where you are the guy and you get the U. K.. And you're also a part of the passing offense. It's a pretty all encompassing effort. If you're running back in Andy Andy Reid off once you get to do a little bit of everything. Didn't he have Masan McCoy at some point as well am I gonNA make it right. Yeah right sobbing. He's got experience has been like a guy I wouldn't WANNA be in writing Rahim. Most we might not hear him in like two years he may be gone to be honest. Same with Matt Brita Kevin Coleman who miraculously recovered from shoulder shoulder. I mean I thought he was done when he got hurt when he left in the NFC championship game. I thought season was over and he started in the Super Bowl. But I think the thing with Andy Reid for me is that him. Winning is like a triumph over a bad narrative. It's like stupidly enough his resume contribution to the game. Now it's unassailable like he's easily into the hall of fame and I don't know do it probably would have happened without this. There would have been the thing right but with now. You can't take that away from him. I imagine this is what it would have been like Tony. Romo had won on a super bowl. I'd be like Oh yeah. I'm glad that dump people don't get to be right about this guy anymore. I do think the Donna that mcnabb super bowl like final drive thing is is a little bit overblown. Obviously it was bizarre at the time that they were there was like the world's slowest possible mcnabb was hurt. Art like it was the end of a long and and taxing game. There are extenuating circumstances there. But when I was looking back and writing this thing on Sunday night this game in two thousand eleven where they're losing to the packers by eleven points at the beginning of the fourth quarter they have fourth in one on the packers sixteen yard line and they kick a field goal. They even they like missed a field goal. But it's like thirty four phil go but it would have gotten them with with an eight points in the fourth quarter. And you're giving the ball back to Aaron Rodgers. It's like that is really stupid like no matter. What we say about Andy Reid? If he's taken too much crap for this or it's been overstated and the long record shouldn't be overshadowed by a couple of bad playoff games but that is just like so bizarre to me that a coach would make that decision and again whether you're it's he's changed whether it's NFL. I think it's probably the NFL. Well he's helped change the NFL to yeah. If you look at the numbers just going for it. On fourth and short short is the thing that has dramatically shirt and the last few years like on the broadcast. You heard Troy Aikman when the chiefs We're downtown saying oh they can just feel goal here. It's fine there within two possessions. They need to feel go anyway. Just like that is like monstrously idiotic. Thinking like the broadcast booth is now like well behind coaches on the field. Which I guess? It's better than the alternative. But I think we can talk about what at Fox and other broadcasters think that the quote unquote casual fan wants during the super bowl like they want the images of players looking like superheroes or whatever whatever the hell that was but like all of the broadcasters have clearly made a decision that like if fans want like a Rafeh analyst or whatever they're still like nobody in the booth explaining like all right mathematically mathematically. This is what I make sense to do. Like this is a percentage you know you know when probability like it doesn't even it doesn't even need to be like that fancy or make it. It's just like yeah no troy. That's like really stupid. You just like want to score a touchdown that score another touchdown you win the game. You don't need to go to overtime by kicking a field. I mean it's just like I don't understand that is not evolved. Can I make one final point about this season in conclusion Joel. ESPN's the undefeated talked about the year. The black quarterback ran a ton of stories about the black quarterback. We end the year with Lamar Jackson as the most valuable player. mahomes winning the Super Bowl and name name the Super Bowl Most Valuable player Patrick mahomes and Lamar Jackson for the next decade health permitting and personnel permitting this could be a really terrific run for the NFL on an affirmation of who should be playing these positions when they're given the opportunity to play them. Yeah I mean I really interesting about those two guys non-traditional national paths right like. It's not like they were going to quarterback coaches and learning dropbacks from the time they were eight years old. dudes that Plato. The sports and kind kind of came into the position in learn how to play it in quote nontraditional way right. Maybe there's some sort of a lesson in that and also just sort of the idea that quarterbacks don't necessarily surly come into package you expect as Patrick Mahomes playing college because I'm a big twelve guy played against Tcu. And I say this all the time now thought Patrick Mahomes was terrible in college. It's like when they said he was going to be a first round. Pick not leave this but obviously you know the thing is that. There's something there that Andy Reid in all these other guys got a chance to Zien just kind of hope that that sort of open mindedness about what a quarterback looks like will hold through..

"What a super bowl? Let's recap trump talked to Hannity. Johnny Cash Song was exploited. OJ made an appearance during a top one hundred players montage. The Rock screamed time to unleash. Hell chiefs fans did their racist chant military color guard to USA songs. World War Two veterans as as David Roth wrote on unnamed temporary sports blog dot com after two decades of leveraging and re leveraging the actual thing that has value here a game that that people really do want to watch together. This is the celebration. We're left with at least in the end. We could celebrate the actual game which turned out to be pretty the exciting mahomes. Mahomes the chiefs offense to three touchdowns in the final six minutes and seventeen seconds while forty niners coach and offensive play caller Kyle Vile Shanahan decided to stop doing what had worked so far in the Game Final Score Kansas City Missouri Chiefs Thirty One San Francisco California Forty niners honors twenty chiefs coach. Andy Reid finally wins the Big One and the Shanahan Families Super Bowl head coaching record drops to end one. This was actually kind of slog slog in which you were lulled into believing that the forty niners defense had figured out how to stop Mahomes they were up by ten and then with seven minutes left mahomes throws throws fifty-seven yards in the air to tyreek Hill for a forty four yard game and then suddenly I was like. Oh Shit this is not over. Joel were you lulled old up until that point I think so because I think I even tweeted something in like in the end of the third quarter I was like oh it. Looks like the forty niners gaining strength. I can't remember a time. Oh Cat mahomes. In the chiefs. Offense has looked like that it was like an effort. You can see everything that they did required so much of themselves to just you know stay above water and I just like you normally played so much more fluid looking offense they're hitting big plays downfield and none of that happened. And you'd like to think well I mean they're going to figure this out or not. And that's Kinda the thing with the chiefs chiefs that no matter how bad they look no matter what point in the game they looked overwhelmed. The underperforming did never really out of it. And that's the thing about the chiefs. Offense is so good that gives them a huge margin for error that they kinda piddle around all game long and then they can eventually figure it out by hitting a couple of big plays overhead. Then you come down. The chiefs are down ten. The seven thirteen left in the game. They're facing a third and fifteen a lot of teams. That seems like that's kind at the end of the road. You don't think they have a chance. But with the chiefs that is a regular play for them like they're never out of it and of course they hit Tyreek Hill. Forty four yards down the field and that kind of sparked that comeback. You can never rest with cheese if you're the opposing defense. You can never assume the game is enhanced because all it takes is a couple of plays turn things around Mahomes look like Eli Manning getting there late on a super bowl throwing a deep soaping him. Okay up until that point. He looked at all points in the game. That was a third and fifteen play. Mahomes had asked for that play on that drive moment. I was called to three jet chippewas HIP WASP to three jet chip wasp and the key to that throw was his being able to have time to drop as far back as he did and unleash early. Along threat of tyreek Hill. Because hill was thirteen yards scrimmage and hell was certainly wide open but mahomes had to get him the ball and the reason. I think that the chiefs offense had had trouble earlier in the game was the forty niners pass. Rush mahomes had some uncharacteristic bad throws through behind hill. A couple times actually for interceptions but Nick Bosa whatever you want to say about his tweets and his political beliefs as a very good football player and was getting a lot of pressure on mahomes. uh-huh knocked the ball away from him once. The rest of the forty niners defensive line is excellent but on this play when they needed a pocket for homes when he needed several seconds to L. to drop back and throw the ball he did actually have the time and space to launch the ball deep. And that's how the chiefs able to come back. I will be curious to see if there is Some more to learn about what was going wrong for the chiefs up until that point the statistics where I mean during the game. I'm like reading the stats on twitter. And you're sort of like dumbfounded. Football perspectives that. It was the thirty seventh game of Mahomes this career only once had he picked up a first down on less than twenty six percent of his passing in plays and up to that point he was at like two through three quarters yards per. Play the forty niners at eight the chiefs at four and a half off the chiefs only had possessions sections seven times up until like nine minutes to go in the fourth quarter. I mean that's Kinda why the game folic slogged me just boring ring game where not much was going on. You know. The teams didn't really have the ball much and that is the kind of game that the forty niners can win Joel and they had those eight yards per play. You know a bet with Jimmy Garoppolo through there but a lot of it was on the ground and you know with Deebo Samuel running on end around plays and the kind of. I don't know if it's innovative. That might have innovative. And like nineteen fifty and innovative again and two thousand twenty but like Kyle Shanahan's running game has offense was allowing allowing the forty niners not only to get big chunks of yardage on offense but keep the chiefs offense off the field. Yeah I think that's kind of the thing right. The running game had been I an effective pretty much all night long. They were averaging something like six dollars. Play going into the fourth quarter. People want to blame this on. Kyle Shanahan if you're a falcons fan if you're forty niners fan you WANNA point to cow Shanahan getting conservative. Kyle Shanahan the offensive coordinator. When the Falcons Blue Twenty eight to three lead in the Super Bowl you might recall yes all right so you either want to blame him for being conservative or you want to blame him for not trusting his quarterback? Whatever it is? There's a narrative around cal Shanahan. Did he doesn't know how to manage late late. Game situations taking the crown from Andy Reid after last night but the thing about it is that I come back to. We talked about third downplay. The mahomes hit in in the fourth quarter. Well let's go a drive later. Jimmy Garoppolo misses a pallet. I mean it was it was laughable. How much he overthrew Emmanuel Sanders says like like a step behind the defense? You hit that play. That's touchdown that's game but Jimmy Garoppolo couldn't do and grapple had been the best quarterback on deep throws all year. I mean it's not like Garoppolo is a total amateur back there but Shanahan also events a huge amount of trust in him at various points throughout the game and throughout the playoffs. off-spinner right Joel on that. Throw that D pass to sanders. He overthrew him by a couple of steps the to me. That wasn't even the decisive play of the game. The decisive play of the game for me was would what a benefit had been a touchdown. Well no no. No I just mean in terms of a play call with was like six zero six left in the game. They run the ball on first down. I'm with Rahima Sturt. And then they pass on second down incomplete two kids and they pass on third down. He misses deebo Samuel on screen as the Real Sports Guy Stephen White former. NFL defensive. Ed pointed out after watching the all twenty two all night. Apparently deebo Samuel is wide open on that third flex. But it's why are you passing on second down when you were trying to a burn the clock and be your running backs are dominant. This made no sense in the Super Bowl. You have a quarterback. You think that you can trust your quarterback to complete something second and five. You know what I mean like. I know that the alternative is to say we'll call. Shanahan wasn't being aggressive when he was playing like he had a lead that he really didn't have against the chiefs right. Because if you're only up by like a couple of scores that's like being tied with the chiefs and so you could say well. He was trying to be aggressive. Put the game in the hands of his quarterback quarterback simply wasn't up to the challenge. You know what I mean. It's tough to blame. Kyle Shanahan for the failures of Jimmy. Regret blow. And I'm not saying Jimmy Garoppolo. I don't WanNA reduce it all to this. Jimmy Garoppolo patent homes as the hero. But if you look at like would they ask their quarterbacks to do the achieves asked Pat Mahomes. Hey Man we need you to make a play right now carry US home. He could do it. Jimmy Garoppolo that's just not something he can do. Yeah I don't know man. They didn't need Jimmy Garoppolo to make a playwright. They're they're winning. Their running game is dominant. They need to get five yards on two plays. They've been averaging five yards a carry. I don't know all of this is contextual right so in last year super bowl when the rams scored three points if Jimmy Garoppolo was the quarterback of his old New England patriots the Badri probably would have won by more uh-huh in this year's super bowl mahomes throws two interceptions if the forty niners had taken advantage of more opportunities earlier in the game. Then you know even these amazing Comeback Kansas City chiefs. There might not have been enough time on the clock for them to be able to execute him as you pointed out in your piece that posted on slate overnight. Josh Josh One of the crucial times when that happened was at the end of the first half when Kyle Shanahan decided not to use a time out they had three timeouts with over a minute and in La Baule. That was a mistake. That was obvious to everybody in retail watching the game and real time and yet sort of towards the end of the game. The forty niners are holding onto this. Lead you kind of tend to forget that the reason that they have a lead by this precise amount of points is is that there are opportunities earlier on that were forsaken and Shanahan said after the game I liked where we're at well. How do you like where you're at when you're tied right at ten against a team that has always scoring like but loads of points and you're essentially saying I don't want to score more right now now I'm good? Doesn't that sound like a guy who's afraid of his quarterback though you'd have me like Jimmy sound like what you know what he hasn't screwed up he hasn't thrown an interception we've controlled fill position Russian. It could be worse. That's the thing about the chiefs. I guess is that they make you think they could always be worse. But the forty niners had so many time outs at that point that they could just run the ball down on the field and at least get into to feel range. It was yes I think there was Aversion to have Garoppolo try to do something they're running down the field and such big big chunks that it was I think less about Garoppolo there and more about. We're getting the ball to start the second hand. Yeah it was like what less miles used to do as no less you coach. He didn't understand that the score as it was right then with like not actually be the score for the entire rest of the game and then the more points that you scored in the beginning at an early stage of the game..

"So so so. Let's let's do this rex. You are one of the great defensive coaches of all time and no one understands and cares about defense more than you. You coached against some of the all time. Greatest offenses dances during your time as defensive coach. How Do you if you're coaching this weekend? For San Francisco attack this Kansas City. I made first first off. There's no way I'm going to put Richard locking down the Cheetah that ain't GonNa Happen Man. He'll lose foot race one hundred percent of the time so anytime time that Richard Sherman is is if he's going to be in man coverage on he's going to have help on top promise you that but the one thing I would. Do you have to hit. These guys is at the line of scrimmage if you give free access you've got no chance so that's what I expect them to do. The the forty niners. So it's interesting. They're not a team name. That is game plan specific. They haven't been the entire season. They play more straight zone coverage than anybody in the national football league. So are they. We're GONNA change now that you've had two weeks of preparation either. I don't think they're going to and here's the thing I think if they try to do something they're not they're not accustomed. Listen to give up fifty points they may give up fifty running their deep pits. Buddy doing what you say in defense or to put somebody over top go man. You'RE GONNA have to go man at some point put somebody over top whoever's covering he'll understand that that'll be fine. That's a good way to play defense. If it wasn't affected they got me Cole. Apartment Intrepid Kelsey. Somebody if you play man defense someone will be in Man Coverage Amoco harmonised just as fast as sorry Kayleigh is so. That is a problem for anybody. The Travis County.

"patrick mahomes" Discussed on The MMQB Podcast with Peter King
"From Miami Beach this Tuesday evening Super Bowl Week Recording this late in the evening I've got three guests for you this this week get breadth each Kansas City chiefs general manager. He's the man who did the most other than Andy Reid. Obviously who made the draft draft pick. But he's the man who did the most to bring Patrick Mahomes to the Kansas City chiefs. And I'll explain why he'll explain. Why in this podcast? We'll also have Matt Maiocco. Covers the San Francisco. Forty niners for NBC. Sports Bay area and I added this after listening. The Kyle Shanahan speak on Monday night media. Night I. It's about what the New England Patriots and San Francisco. Forty niners did did when the transaction of Jimmy Garoppolo of the quarterback from New England going to San Francisco for a second round draft choice. We're GONNA delve into that a little bit with Mayo an curren because I just found it a very very interesting story when Kyle Shanahan started talking about at this on Monday night at Marlins Park where they're holding media night but before we get into it I'm GonNa make my super bowl pick. I'm picking the chiefs to win thirty eighty to twenty eight when Mike Florio told me this week that the line was one and a half. I said okay. Kansas City twenty nine and a half San Francisco Twenty eight I think it's going to be a fairly high scoring game. I think that this is easily one of the toughest super bowls That there has been to pick in recent years and maybe ever because I think either team could win this game by fourteen points or more. I just think that especially if Jimmy Garoppolo which none of us know if Jimmy Garoppolo can rebound and be a big factor in this game. I think that San inference iskoe easily could score in the high twenties or thirties against Kansas City. Just a few reasons for For My pick now I do expect the Jimmy Garoppolo whose only thrown fourteen passes in the last six quarters. While basically they've run the forty niners have run seventy seven percent of the time in the last six quarters and that I'm not saying I I don't think that Kyle Shanahan is GonNa lean on Garoppolo here. It's just that I don't know what to expect Jimmy Garoppolo in this game. I don't know that anyone one could know what to expect that Jimmy Garoppolo because he's been invisible for the last game and a half essentially. I don't blame the San Francisco Forty niners over the last six quarters. They rushed for six point two yards per carry and like I said my columnist week in football morning in America. If you you can rush for six point two yards per carry. Wouldn't you keep running it and I think where I land on this for. Everybody says Amana petrified about Garoppolo. I would be concerned about it but I will also remember this or I'll remind you this the team that had the toughest three game stretch in the NFL. This year was the San Francisco Forty niners when they had green bay at home and then at Baltimore and at New Orleans and I just thought that far and away this was going to be the toughest three-game stretch anybody had so Garoppolo quarterback the niners in those three games. He won two of them mm-hmm. He completed seventy two percent of his throws in those three games. Seven touchdowns one interception ten point one yards per tempt that is an excellent stat in an excellent Thing for Kyle Shanahan to come back to if if anybody he any point You know in his in his fan base or even in his locker room would question. Now Jimmy Garoppolo I think Kyle Shanahan has all the evidence he needs to say. This guy is going to throw the ball early and often on Sunday and we think he'll be fine so at the end end of the day. You probably say okay. Well then why didn't you pick the forty niners and I didn't pick the forty niners because I believe that Patrick Mahomes is the best quarterback in football all at throwing the ball when pressured and obviously he's GonNa face the defensive front with the best ability to pressure the quarterback of any team even football however since Patrick mahomes entered the National Football League incense is let's let's take it since the beginning of the two two thousand eighteen season Patrick Mahomes when he has to throw the ball in two point. Five seconds or less he has the best most passer rating in football. He's the most efficient quarterback in football. Why do I say two point? Five seconds or less that essentially is the line line of demarcation. It's not an official stat. But basically if you get to the quarterback in two point five seconds you're doing a great great job in the San Francisco Forty niners in these playoffs. Incredibly EV- averaged getting to the quarterback getting to pardon me kirk cousins and Aaron Rogers. They they've gotten to to to those quarterbacks very very efficiently and often and the average time to throw in the first two playoff games those guys two point five seconds so they've done a very good job and they'll do a good job against Patrick Mahomes. The question is will mahomes is be able to make the plays off his regular Throwing schedule off platform so to speak. Will he be able to make enough of those plays. I believe that he will. So I like the chiefs narrowly but please I beg. You do not take that to the bank. I am. Perhaps the worst predictor in all of the news media when it comes to trying to pick big games. So Oh let's get to our conversations this week we're going to start with Brett. Vh the Kansas City chiefs. General Manager who I think has has done an excellent job in short short time you know either atop personnel or being the GM. He replaced John. Dorsey after Dorsey was dismissed. A couple a couple of years ago so I think that Brett V. has very good institutional knowledge of where exactly Patrick Mahomes came from with.

"Hear directly from your Kansas City chiefs and I'll provide a little bit of color along the way my name Ms Pete Sweeney. I'm the editor in chief over at Arrowhead Pride. Dot Com and the three and chiefs have turned their attention to the Detroit lions are set to play noon Arrowhead time at Ford Field in Detroit great and this'll be a quick episode of from the podium because only Andy Reid and Patrick mahomes spoke from the podium on Wednesday so we'll start with the chiefs head coach. Here's Andy Reid read from the podium. The guys won't practice today or fish and tyreek. Damian Williams also be the practice before the challenge of playing Detroit. We know their football team. They're undefeated right now doing in a two and a half of my Matt Patricia these joint changed and their personnel players coaches playing hard aggressive football. Sorry guys are starting to get back in and make sure we study him and go go through a phase. We need to go through before we collect money that line for football. What about what what they're doing is really incredible. They play they've got a good scheme and then they play hard and tackle well. They've been living off turnovers on defense and now says of festively. They're scoring points so you gotTa make sure you stay on top of that. You've got you've got quarterback that has been around awhile and goes the game. They've got some guys that can also put the special teams who do took a job. Two turnovers are turnovers count but there's maybe a little difference between did go get it and then someone making a mistake making a living my actually take it away and things they're doing forcing them to tackle the ball and the ball ball comes out and and so yeah fumbles have been one thing about a couple of interceptions then there so that's all so far mentioned engined malnutrition obsolete kick from those though check and talking about big. That's your guy. How how long does it take for you to find who you are. You're always going to be influenced by came up with but what did you like reading reading to. Not You know Oh baby. I'm a smart elegant and so yeah I mean you. Develop your own thing. You put your name on it and you go you do it. As a player you doing as a coach in any profession where so normally starts aren't right way. You can't help but if you're copying somebody then the players re through that particular when player comes it was somewhere or else and then you've got problems so you've got to be yourself but he's done that. He's not nice job. He had a big responsibility with New England being coordinator for a number of years and he was so and I think he's kind of put his own mark movies. Those three released between Steve's Today. We sort of rotating was eight guys in these. I just how you feel it. The ideal yeah yeah you try to keep fresh throw fastballs in there. I think it's good to get some as young experience in there. Too pays off free down the down the road but I think are playing fast and aggressive. They seem to have a good grasp of the concepts mm skinny and we're trying to do so when the shop became available. You noted that he still showed a bear stocktake added for a few weeks different now than last yeah. He's got gray hair but he still has the vision in the shifty. He's never the fastest guy in the Orley fast enough but not that's not his game is gave him a great vision and an ability to move they still has he's got a burst. I catch pretty. We're not asking him to go. Every downed probably did that more in Philadelphia than what we're doing now so I I can't answer that part because he's he's in a rotation so But the vision and the feeder a the rookie receiver you've had with more through three games and go hardin Sean Jackson. UC makeup wise you know whether it's physical or mental that's kind of comparable to those took is our all legs little short torso long legs which is interesting unique and they don't. They don't now way at time. You put them on a scale. They're not going to be like one of our legs so it's but they could run and run fast and they both have a good feel for the game. Both of them are smart guys. Johnsboro smart kid wants typical Williams taking his opportunity yeah now so he played for us last year kind of the same type role and he's just kind of Mr consistent instant tough again. He's a smart kid so he knows everything protection wise. It's gone on patient runner. He goes he's GonNa. He's GonNa hit you. Bring a lot of hardaway behind him so he can shoulder down and get you a couple of extra hours there any the You seem to be pretty impressed today with coys ability to self right he played last week. He'd do anything above and beyond. was there something about what compared himself last week. I think it's just a willingness to spend time here. You know just stained and worked as well those injuries in the morning work at the better given it takes a lot of time and effort you got to kind of push through some things there that and he did he worked it and as a result he is able to play but I think it's a good example a certain injuries. You can't do that with this one that you can't and you're not going to hurt your career career. Your or your future to be able to walk is not just the time over the years is just one of those guys can push through some stuff. That's a tough position place. You'RE GONNA take a few hits now. He's quick enough and vision comes in handy so he knows is when you get down and then when to drop his shoulder and try and get extra yards but he's been pretty good with that you know from even when radio's young limit some of the unnecessary hit suggest to take on defense. Some of your stats are already better the last year but I'm from coach said the other day. He thanked the turnoff to come from coaches. Be What do you see. It tells you that this tanking get down. We're so oh close. I mean you see or were right there. We'll get our hands on the ball or were hesitant in some some areas to go. Get the ball and I mean there's small things and so I look at that and I go. Hey you give that a little time. You Trust those exchange and you've been league. I've seen it before so you know that's gotTa Company. That's earth Kerr things like warp speed out there so it's happening right now in real time and one of those things where you have to do it you gotta keep. I'm doing it and then it just becomes second nature so the improvement. The expectancy is mostly other things well no but that was so yeah. Turn turn so I'm saying that turnover is you'll see improvement in that area. If we have opportunities like the ones we've had or created opportunities like the ones we have so by putting yourself in the right position and but I think overall you're gonNA more. They planted planet. You better get who you mentioned making more coming from his days with the Patriots where some of the challenges I'm just for you as a play caller and also the game clinger knowing that you working when it gets guy who does like the scheme he's very good at it and and so you can say well they played man coverage here but they might come on Blake over to the next game so you don't know and so you make sure that you cover all the bases with you guys and he's got like I said the scheme that they've got is their base game is tremendous and then they can go different directions but I can tell by disciplined as guys are and I know that defense well enough what they're asking them to do you and and they're doing those things sound looks like the players trust and believe in color coded from a company standpoint. How big of a big frank ticket that I I mean it was good. It was good sack. I mean as much as he's doubled in keeps fighting through it. I think that's where I look at it. I mean I'm not into all the staff stuff at how many actually gets but being around the quarterback and then having him finally an opportunity to tackle. That's a good thing just a couple of good running backs up. This is another workload back. Have you worked lives. How critical tone early lower yours to carry. That's what you do. I mean the players want to do that. Way And the coaches want to do it that way so they work on it. I I just always give credit also to the team for a reason if they're good and tell you they're good the number one offense the number two defense is not like they're. GonNa win a lot of games and so good football team news emotional times fired up times baby chat and Chambas leaves teammates thing or something that he needs to get more more confident offer. Maybe a little bit more animated. He's he's been that way. I mean he's he's competitive and he's a leader Combat Punch and he's the one that's on the field and so he wants certain things out of the play as a player you got to get those those things done and so and that's were my trust in him and the other coaches trusted him comes in the these you make sure you demand the right things. Obviously you're in the game and he's very good with that. I mean that's one of his strengths so he's got that natural leadership ability and and he doesn't get job with. I think it weighs it. Well you do every every play. Just GonNa turn you but I think he's got a good show. For of course you can throw the ball tied into the first happened. must the second half run the ball. Pounds is their philosophical thing on every plane with the lead. Is there a certain waiting start trying to maybe get a little more conservative play calling situation. I probably tell you situation difference with that. In mind off feel so that's chiefs head coach. Andy Ndi read from the podium and you could tell he he's in a good mood. He's really excited that the chiefs for three and enrolling here but he's also focused on the Detroit Lions Matt Apper Tricia Really defensive-minded head coach from that Bill Belichick tree they really liked to run the football and he made some good comments about the defensive line rotation and how well that's been working out for the chiefs as far as defense. The defense is coming along. I found the compliments on the running backs interesting really highly complimentary of Shawn McCoy and Daryl Williams and what I found particularly interesting about it. This week is that read is going going above and beyond to commend Leshan McCoy for pushing through that ankle injury and that could just be a compliment for him but I wonder if there's more to it because Damian Williams has now been out for two weeks running. I'm talking to you right now. On Wednesday night he missed practice today. That's the fourth straight practice missed and read really said he was proud of McCoy. The thirty one on your old who sounded like did extra treatment to get back on the field. You wonder if there's an extra message that he's sending to perhaps another player on on the team the player at the same position it does make you wonder all right after the break. We're GONNA keep from the podium rolling with cheese quarterback. Patrick mahomes will be right back. Check out the American Ninja Warrior podcast for a behind the scenes.

"Was getting a little bit of work in there and learn that part so that kind of player in this offense becomes you know ends up being a valuable if he can do both it's a valuable position couple more coach n._f._l. Films uh-huh carrying a film on sundays from including behind him and you know the family pretty. Well your thoughts on the project. Yeah well i. I got a taste of it at the owner media so so i'm believable i mean everybody was in tears. It was it was crazy stories. I mean you you gotta see it. It's just one of those. You've gotta see deals. It's it was phenomenal capture. I'm sure the whole audience and <hes> you know it was <hes> jagged did <hes> she did the <hes> <hes> narration or the the questions and answers airmont. We call that monitor monitor. She was the monitor so she did a great job with it and <hes> and then the ladies they just they were able to express express himself in the history. The history is phenomenal. Some of the stories are just unbelievable was the worst but <hes> we'll see on that yeah. We haven't even got there yet. Yeah i'm not that far along <hes> in this over kind of getting through through all this and then we'll see. How do you feel that your team just just in general terms where you are right now where you need to be yeah i i love the attitude and the work that they're putting in. I appreciate that <hes> we we shelve away this ago. We gotta keep working <hes> but there there were doing some good things and but we gotta keep built. You know you gotta keep. It's it's early yet and <hes> and you gotta keep your foot on. The foot on the gas. Got blank like everything out. I put everything aside here and go play and so that's what this this groups have been doing that. So far and i appreciate that part is that she's head coach. Andy reid from his press availability on tuesday. He welcomes jeff allen and the anthony thomas back to the team and you could hear it in his voice. He really doesn't think there's going to be too much of a transition for these these guys who know the offense to dive right back in and get up to speed in the twenty nineteen version including patrick mahomes mccoll hartman and some of the other different things that now exists exist. I found two points interesting in this press conference. Cam irving had been working as a starting left guard on tuesday. I thought it was interesting. That read said eh. He's just trying to mix him. With andrew. Wylie andrew wylie had been the starting left guard all training camp so this was a little bit odd but reid said he just wants to get the two players experience at both positions so the way. I look at it as this. If one of the tackles eric fisher or mitch schwartz goes down does it make more sense for the chiefs used to put andrew wylie at tackle and slide cam irving in than it does to just put cam irving and tackle is he better as a guard than a tackle. I tend tend to think that wiley is still a starter but the chiefs are just trying some things out and that makes sense to do at this time of the season. I also thought it was interesting and you heard my question to read about trauma smith that she's reworking shimon smith as a wide receiver now a member. He came as a cornerback transition to a running back. He was working as a wide receiver on on tuesday and it's just a chief trying to see what they have. In smith. I think with thomas now added to the roster smith making the team becomes more difficult because he served the chiefs chiefs as a backup returner where we've seen anthony thomas run as a backup returner before he was actually a starting returner on this team over the past few years so that certainly hurts the chances of tremont smith are we're gonna keep it moving here with the quarterback of your chiefs. Here's patrick mahomes from the podium. Media got a new face out there kind of during back danny..
"patrick mahomes" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Again. Everybody's new favorite team in the league, Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, joy Taylor is joining me. How are you joy? I'm Greg morning. This'll be fun tonight. It is we both love the NFL. And this is one of those games over the last month. We've been waiting for. Let's now review Patrick Mahomes two. Biggest games this year New England, man, he was nasty flying all over the place and making throws all over the place and had. To really bad picks in lost. All right. All right. Let's go to his next big game against the Rams news thrown ball all over the place and make him plays. What he had three picks two fumbles and lost. Two games two. Biggest games seven turnovers lost. And I hear nothing but hype affection and love. I know he throws no look passes. Call me nutty highlight my quarterbacks to look where they throw. In both those games, by the way against Tom Brady and Gough he had more yards. He had more highlights. He had more touchdown passes. Yet. Nobody seemed to mention it was a big part of why they lost its seven turnovers. It's interesting that Andrew luck who had a GM so bad. He was fired and a coat so bad. He was fired and had to pro bowlers and went eleven and five eleven five eleven and five and got to the AFC championship game where he was overwhelmed in Foxborough. Of course, he was New England had the better team. And all I heard was hey throws to many interceptions. It's the worst team that's ever gotten to a conference championship that eleven and five colts team, Patrick Mahomes, who I'm not sure is going to get to the AFC championship has Andy Reid who. Yes is gonna get probably one Super Bowl voted to the hall of fame an absolutely ridiculously gifted offensive roster. Eric berry, by the way, one of the top five athlete. From the lead. The gronk stopper will be coming back from Kansas City tonight. Why is that? Why is Andrew luck with no support a badge? EM a terrible coach get heat despite amazing win loss records and accomplishment in Patrick Mahomes. It's crickets why. Because one guy is a head band and another guy is a neck beard. One guy is fun and flashy on guys got a flip phone. One guy's got a little nightclub. One guy has a book club. One guy's cool. One guy's not one guys know look Andrew Lux, always look that's what we keep doing fallen for the flashy. I'm not saying Patrick Mahomes isn't really good. He's not Andrew log. He's not Andrew lock about the way. Andrew luck entered the league replacing somebody we all loved Peyton Manning. We didn't want like him to begin with. And he went to Stanford Stanford Stanford where rich kids Stanford. Yeah. Replacing Peyton Manning y'all Peyton Manning each Oreos, and sub sub sandwiches and drives a Buick and Patrick Mahomes, replace the likable but incredibly boring Alex Smith who could never throw for two touchdown passes in a single game. This is what we do in the big games versus good teams this year. New England the Rams and Baltimore last week. Patrick Mahomes is at eight turnovers. Not a word. Andrew luck took a team with two pro bowlers one of them a kicker. Bad GM bad coach running for his life. Really no help in the running game or defense to the AFC championship. And we just kept crushing him. Because he threw interceptions. Let me just ask you if Mahomes tonight loses and he shouldn't Eric berry is back in. Oh. By the way. The chargers don't have their top two running backs available. So they're going to be completely one dimensional Kansas City should win there at home. Biggest game in Kansas City in twenty years. What are we going to say tomorrow on the show? Well, I mean, he is amazing. And he didn't look multiple times any let's just try to hold everybody to the same level. Andrew luck with far less to this point had done far more. Far more. I do like Kansas City in this game. Because Kansas City comes in at home. Eric berry biggest game in a long time a ton to play for and the chargers don't have a home are seemingly playing every game on the road. And don't have one of the great running backs in the NFL available or his backup. Let me move to this story. This is interesting everybody today's talking about that team baby..

"And so often their timing isn't quite as good or you know, they are used to being able to do things based on raw ability that. Quarterbacks who think or react quicker? Are able to do with a lesser arm. I mean, I think Patrick is a pretty quick thinker. You know, he hasn't even started sixteen games. He hasn't been exposed to expose to too much yet. And you know, he reads defenses phenomenally well for where he is in his career. But he still hasn't even played a year yet. How do you think though, as we what we see in? What we experience how do you think though in even with the lead eleven, you know, going back to high school, how can an arm like that sort of be kept under wraps like in this in this world where you know, when basketball and in football like there are publications out there Seth that. Like here are the top seventh graders. I mean, this is crazy like it seems that having someone be a hidden gem. Like that is with what we're talking about. Like that sort of skill set. It seems almost impossible it does. But you know, football just cannot it cannot get out of its own way with. Comes to evaluate in quarterbacks. I mean, it just can't and the NFL was still a developmental league. I mean Aaron Rodgers Tom Brady drew Brees. Those guys are not the same player that they were when they entered the league. And so, you know, it's the biggest mystery is like why did the bears? Think Trubisky was the superior prospect into Patrick Mahomes. Why John Elway who's sitting there watching Patrick Mahomes? Throw kind of like a younger version of Elway himself. Not realize what was there in pick him? An and try to make a move to get himself. It's one of those things that I just don't think will ever be explained. But I think like. You know at the end of the day. It's like we do what we can to try to break down quarterbacks. Like a technician would break down and engine. When in fact, the sort of human spirit is much bigger deal than we ever make it out to be your one admit, and we can't predict for it right to the point that it seems that if you are willing to run the circuit and put your brand out there in in today's day and age where everything's a brand every person's brand, it seems that the people who are willing to brand themselves. The most like, oh, I'll go on your show and your show, and I'll talk this, and I'll be real personable about it. It seems that actually in that period of time. Everyone's making decisions means more than what someone can actually physically do totally. And I mean again, but with Patrick it's weird because he could physically do so many things, and I think that maybe Pat people just saw him as nothing more than having this. Great arm and didn't want trust, Texas. Techs often production, but he landed in a perfect situation because you look at some of these players who, you know, Alex Smith comes to mind, but he had I think five coordinators in his first five years. You know, you need stability. You just you look at Baker Mayfield. He's already going to be year behind because next year hub whole new offense coordinator, he'll be learning. Whole new things a whole new language and Patrick went to a safe destination. Yet, you know, he got to sit a year, and he's working with one of the most innovative coaches the past twenty years who's not going anywhere that we're aware of. And you mention Matt Ryan how Matt Ryan's career seems to have been flow with the consistency of his coordinators. Yeah. Without a doubt. I mean, you look at what Kyle Shanahan is doing in San Francisco, and you look at what Kyle Shanahan didn't Matt Ryan with Matt Ryan what they were able to do together. It's just obvious that coaching matters. Yes. Well, like you say we'll see if this. He already has a Patrick Mahomes has some of his uniforms and his young career in canton. And we'll see if he can keep going and end up with a jacket of his own up there. All right, man. Seth thank you again. Thank you.
