"Which he could. I'm going to guess he outscores Stefan takes 9 out of 9 times. Of course, I'm kidding here. I basically agree with Matt. I think Davis is on the up and up, but Diggs is still the queer, wide receiver one, who opposing defenses can't afford to just roll all the coverage onto Stefan Diggs either. So I'm going to go a little less than Matt and say, Davis would outscore digs three of the 9 times. If you played it out 9 times. They correct answer is exactly three times. Gabriel Davis is has the potential to get the touchdown productivity that we haven't seen from Stefon Diggs. Dig still special player, obviously, and we trust him a lot more for receptions and yards, but never been somebody with the high touchdown upside. That's where Gabriel Davis can eat into it. Current 80 P differential is 60 picks. Wow. Between the two. That's 5 rounds exactly. 60 picks. That gives a, I think if I were to ask, would you rather pay ADP 12 or 80 P 75? I think we'd all take Gabriel Davis. And GP 75, right? I think so. That does make sense. All right, Matt, let's go back to let's go back to your off your offensive line analysis from last segment. Last segment, you highlighted your time. You're the best offensive lines. Now let's go for the ones that people should show some caution on. Now let's go for the jugular. The consensus bottom 5 offensive lines. We're going to start with Seattle. My guy, Ken walker, DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, Rashad penny, Noah fan. Geno Smith or drew lock. Let's give two backup quarterbacks a bottom 5 offensive line and see what happens. Yeah. Let's give a running back who gets injured every three games a bottom 5 offensive line and see what happens. How much of DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett's production was tied to Russell Wilson's ability to just keep up play live a lot. I'm very scared of DK Metcalf this year. I'm completely off of Tyler Lockett. He won't be on any of my teams. Well, I'm going to jump in for a second because we talked about this in our off season fantasy football weeklies. For whatever it's worth in the Geno Smith starts last year, he played three full games at about half of another game. DK, it was all DJ multi came out. All DK Metcalf. He was a top ten wide receiver in three of those four weeks. That is, until drew lock becomes the quarterback. At some point. They're going to go back and forth. It's going to be strange. I don't think drew locks good enough to eat. Look, I don't think Gino Smith is great, but I don't think drew lock is good enough to even take it away. It could be. Second team that was on the consensus bottom 5 offensive lines. That's the Chicago Bears. That's David Montgomery, Justin Fields, Darnell Mooney, and Cole committee. The bears are just in full tank mode and it's weird because they spent a ton of draft capital, the draft Justin Fields. And then they're going to serve him to the wolves for like two to three years. It's just bizarre. I'm worried they're going to ruin them. The good news is the four guys that I mentioned likely are their only fantasy producers. So there's very little guesswork in what you have to do. A little nervous that Cole commit might not be able to get out in coverage enough because he's back blocking a little bit. The offensive line that may be scares me the most out of all the teams this year consensus bottom 5 offensive line. The Las Vegas Raiders. Derek Carr Devante Adams, hunter renfrow, Darren Waller, Josh Jacobs, or zamir white. The Raiders have had the Raiders did have a very good offensive line in 2020. They blew it up and they blew it up. They shipped away almost all of it in the last year and a half. They had 2021 first rounder Alex leatherwood playing guard last year. He was the second lowest graded guard by pro football focus. So what do you do? You shift him to right tackle. Let's just have him learn a new position. And tackle might be a little bit more important. Does this possibly hurt Darren Waller, the most out of everybody? They might have to. A, keep him into block or B, maybe he's just not on the field and foster more rose into block. Devonte Adams has never played on a team with an offensive line this bad. Ever. Yeah. I'm really nervous about the Raiders. So, and then the other teams that were receiving votes, there's four more that we're on one list, but not the other. The Pittsburgh Steelers, they haven't fixed that line in years. So we'll either be sad trombone skier rookie Kenny Pickett trying to run for their lives. Atlanta, they're another team in rebuild. Their quarterbacks are a little bit more mobile than some others we've talked about. So they might be oddly equipped for this weakness, but they're gonna be running for their lives. The New York Giants, football guys, had them ranked as their worst offensive line. Pro football focus had them at 20, so kind of in the middle. Andrew Thomas and Evan Neal, at least appear to be their tackles of the future. And if both are fine, I think they're going to be okay. Just moments ago, I heard the taekwon Barkley was going to be the highest scoring running back in. They got two good tackles. Hey, this is somebody else's ranking about the Giants being the worst. I think that they might be in there. I'm not saying that they're the worst or the best or anything like that. I'm just looking at a bunch of those 15 catch games that Barkley had. That's what we need. And then Jacksonville, they gained Brandon scherf, but they lost their best lineman in Brandon linder to retirement. Trevor Lawrence might be skittish again this year. And so a little nervous about the Jaguars still. I like that the Giants added Evan Neal. That could help. It's not like they haven't tried. No, they put draft picks. They put free. They've tried. Just to this point has not worked out very well. All right, when we come back, plenty more to get to over the course of the show, including we love the player, but we hate the average draft position. Players we love but players were not willing to pay for it, find out who they are when we come back

"Do those a little bit later. I do value, I put a premium on players behind a great offensive line and why I believe the Bengals can be one of the safer offenses is because of that, a blend of good players and which should be a very good offensive line. And I value safety. That's always always one of the sure things that we want to try to get to without a doubt. And we'll talk about the bad offensive lines. It affects my rankings as well. You know, we've seen lots of players who struggle when you have to make up your own yards. And a little teaser on the bat offensive lines. A lot of them are ones you'd expect, but there's one offensive line that everybody's drafting lots of players from this team. And I'm a little afraid of them now. Are you? Yeah. Oh, all right. We'll keep our we'll keep our eyes out for that. Three tough questions when we come back. There's a game in which I pepper my co host with three tough questions as the name suggests. And you can try to play along, see if you can go three and oh. We'll talk to you about the players we love and the players that we love, but we can't draft them because of where they're going in the drafts. Love the player hate the ADP.

"I know. Because mine makes more sense. Well, there's that. Brian you're. Second of two peacock offs. Philadelphia's Dallas Goddard will finish as a top four tight end. I can't say top three because he's not going to beat out Kelsey, Andrews of my boy Kyle Pitts. But he's going to finish his number four. Last year he finished his tightened 8, which doesn't sound that far off from top four, but when it comes to points scored, it was a lot. Trust me, between top four and top 8. But a lot of things weren't going Goddard's way last year. Of course, Zach Ertz was on the eagles for about half of the season, soaking up half of the tight end targets, Goddard was also often dinged up, missed two games entirely due to injury. And as a result, he only saw 76 targets, but if he can get bumped up to that 100 plus target range, which I think happens, all the metrics are there for a breakout year for Goddard if he can get that volume. He averaged 2.2 points per target in PPR leagues. That's an excellent numbers per target for Goddard. He also was second in yards per reception among tight ends at 14.9 yards. He was first in yards per route run among tight ends and he led all tight ends and completed air yards per target at 6.4. And now with AJ Brown in Philly at wide receiver along with devonta Smith, they're going to take up a lot of attention from opposing defenses and of course no Zach Ertz anymore Dallas Goddard going around tight end 7 8, maybe 9, but I think he's got that top four potential this year. I agree with that too. I'm with you. It doesn't even sell that bold when you frame it up that way. Mission accomplished. Our final peacock off. I post to you my fantasy football weekly co host is Royce Freeman, a particularly good running back. No. Is dare a goomba walle a particularly good running back? No, is Marlon Mack, particularly good running back. Maybe a one time. Is Rex birkhead, particularly good running back? No. He wasn't week 17. I think I used him as my take on player and it hit for some guy you shifted on Venmo me 50 bucks. That's awesome. I was like, sure. We currently stop behavior listening. That's to be clear. All of that together, that's the competition. We should put our Venmo handle tip tipping his heart really. Twitter. At BTX J 8 one. That won't be opposed to it. Those are the players Damien pierce has for competition for carries in Houston. He's already running with the first team. Often in practice, Damien pierce Houston, Texans. Now, I know everybody's like, oh, it's the Texans. I don't want any part of the Texans. A, that was last year. Overhauled coaching staff improved offensive line, put a first rounder into the offensive line. I'll remind you of that. And Damien pierce is a pretty, it's a pretty uniquely gifted back. He is a big body back who can easily be built for goal line use. He runs inside very well and surprisingly soft hands in college, they threw to him downfield frequently. I've talked about him last week too. I'm going to keep talking about Damien pierce until proven wrong. Great opportunity for a player who at a minimum should get goal line use and to make official, my prediction here in my peacock off, I predict Damien pierce will finish as an RB two this year, which puts him as a top 24 running back. I'm totally with you on this one, jerk. Wow. All right. That one made sense. So it's not all just not all personal. Yeah, all right, good. Matt, we promised to talk about the best and worst offensive lines. Sure. Tell me, let's start with the best. Yeah, let's start with the best. So I took a look at the top and bottom 5 offensive lines from both pro football focus and football guys I mashed them together. I came up with a couple of teams that you might want to bump up and down a few spots on your cheat sheet. There were three teams that were in the top 5 in both lists. Number one overall on both was Philadelphia. That's Jalen hurts, AJ Brown, devonta Smith, Dallas Goddard, miles Sanders, Kenny gainwell. Brian talked a little bit about Dallas Goddard. He might be the guy who is maybe in the best position here. He's a tight end who doesn't have to stay in and block. He's got the best offensive line in the league. He can go out there. Add that to your Dallas Goddard. Absolutely there. And with Zach Ertz fully out of the picture, Goddard could be looking at a huge volume year. The next team, this one was a little bit of a surprise. The Detroit Lions Lions, you said. Deandre swift, TJ hawkinson, Amon Ross saint Brown DJ chark, Jameson Williams and Jared Goff. Hawkinson, the same way, should be free to catch passes for the same reason Goddard is. And Jared Goff might be operating behind the best offensive line he's ever had. In most single quarterback fantasy leagues, he's not even being drafted. But look at the weapons around him and look at the line and if goth can't get it done this year. Well, he's a backup for the remainder of his career. Yeah, that is probably this is it for Jared Goff. He's got to perform this year. That doesn't necessarily mean he will. You're right. It's true. You make a great case that behind that offensive line with the weapons around him. Golf's gonna beef start able from time to time. If you can pick the right spots, that could make a lot of sense. And if you slough quarterback completely or you're just looking for your backup. He's gonna be a take a chance on me quarterback several times this year. You're right, exactly. And if you've been watching hard knocks, there is a vibe in Detroit right now. I've bought in. I think most people who have been watching hard knocks believe that there's going to be a big jump for the Lions this year. I'll finish up with the one more offensive line that is really great. And that's the Cleveland Browns. Nick Chubb, Kareem hunt, Jacoby Brissette slash QB browns, Amari Cooper, and David and. I mean, Chubb's the guy, if hunt is traded before the season begins, I think Brian said, dearness Johnson probably hops into that hunt roll, but if QB browns is cleared to play, it's the best O line that he's ever had. He never had one like that in Houston. And if it's Jacoby Brissette, I mean, well, he spent all those years in indie with a great offensive line. So we know exactly what we're getting. Also, David and is the last tight end in ADP that I think I draft and it gets scary after that, but in, for the same reason, probably won't have to stay in and block too much. I will mention that the other teams that were mentioned as top 5 teams, but didn't make both lists Tampa Bay who just lost their starting center, Ryan Jensen, probably for the year. Green Bay, both of their starting tackles, David bakhtiar and Elton Jenkins are dealing with some injuries from last year, which we've mentioned a few times. Kansas City, the interior line is awesome, but Orlando Brown and Lucas niang are average at best tackles. And then New Orleans, who came in at number four on football guys rankings, but number 21 on pro football focuses rankings. They lost terran Armstead, which is a huge loss. I know, but I'm not sure who to believe here, but these are pro football focuses rankings of this year's offensive line. Like this year's version. So I do know that their new tackle Trevor penning likes to get in fights. He was kicked out of training camp for getting in fights with his own players too much. That's all. But yeah, New Orleans is definitely an interesting one with chimera, Jameis Winston and all those receivers. So we can maybe talk the bottom defensive or offensive lines a little bit later in the show if you want. Yeah, we'll have to

"Not bad. Time flies. That is a lot. So if we combine all of our years together, we're like 56 years on the show. That's a lot of time. Man, I think I got to be creeping up on like haber Meyer and Beau Mitchell. The most years. As a co host, absolutely true. This is a segment we like to call the peacock off. Two bold predictions for this season from each of our hosts that are hopefully grounded in some actual legitimate optimism that these are going to come true. We call it the peacock off. We should have gone back and figured out how we did in our peacock offs last year. But somebody will tweet us, if somebody wants to, that would be great. I remember one of mine. I said Kyle Pitts will score more touchdowns. Calvin Ridley. And they ended up tying with one. Well, Ridley miss half the season, which yes, but I think if Ridley plays, that actually would have come true. He could have helped Kyle Pitts score more touching. You know what? It would have been a better peacock off to say. Kyle Pitts will score more touchdowns in England than he will in the United States. Oh, that would have been bad. We were really got it there. Yeah, that would have been fantastic. All right, Matt, let's start with you. What is your first? Peacock on. Kenneth walker the third finishes the year as a top ten running back. Oh, I like it. Last year, a Seattle running back finished with 15 or more PPR fantasy points in ten of 17 games and the games in which they didn't hit that mark. They had third stringers Alex Collins and DJ Dallas as the feature backs. Chris Carson and Rashad penny were the ones who did that. Most of the time last year. Now Carson has retired penny already sitting out with a groin injury and since 2018 he's had a knee strain, a hamstring strain, a torn ACL, another knee strain, a calf strain, and another hamstring strain. He's not very durable. That's a lot. Walker has been really good when given the opportunity and camp. They say his work in the passing game is much better than they anticipated. And 15 PPR points per game seems very manageable for a running back, running backs number 7 through 14. Last year, all finished with about 15 PPR points per game last year that was Zeke Antonio Gibson, Aaron Jones, Cordero Patterson, David Montgomery. Kenneth walker is going to finish right in there if he gets the full workload there. Top ten running back. All right, aided by the recent groin injury. Sure. To Rashad penny, but you know what? This is par for the course for him. He doesn't get the benefit of the doubt on injuries. You're getting walker in the 7th or 8th round right now too. I like all of that. Brian, what is your peacock off your first of two peacocks? My first peacock off is saquon Barkley will be now I was going to say a top three but I'm going to say the top running back in PPR this season. Saquon. Number one. So I'm basically predicting he returns to his rookie year for him in 2018 when he was the number one overall running back in PPR. And why can't he get there? He's still very young. Of course, his career suffered a major setback in 2020 when he blew out his ACL. It affected him last year running backs generally take two years to return from such an injury and speaking of injuries, some people were calling him injury prone, because he also heard his ankle last year. That was a very flukey injury. He stepped on a teammate's ankle while gaining like 20 yards on a nice explosive run, but he looks great in camp right now. The Giants invested heavily in their offensive line in the off season. They also have new head coach, offensive minded Brian dabel, who's the former OC from the bills. So saquon Barkley, a guy who in March, April, go in mid to late third round and creep to wait second, and now it's creeped to early second. He's going to be a first round pick in a couple weeks, if not there already. I mean, I love saquon Barkley. Were you still a great value late in the early in the second round right now? My first of two peacocks. Trey Lance. We'll finish as a top 5 fantasy quarterback this year. This one I think you're crazy. Just this one? Yeah. Just this one. What's this one? Here's how it's going to happen. He's going to rush a lot. This is a rush first offense and he's going to do plenty of running in his two starts last season. He ran 24 times for 120 yards. I have reason to believe that is a 60 yard per game average, and the average 5 yards per carry. That would put him on pace for a thousand yard rushing season. Out of a quarterback Trey Lance. Now, let's just let's assume he's not going to drop 30 passing touchdowns 'cause now we'd be talking about him being QB one. Instead, let's assume Trey Lance is going to be more like a 22 25 touchdown passer. A modest passer consistent with most quarterbacks first year. Well, the beauty of it is, all he has to do is get the hands, the ball in the hands of his playmakers. He's got so many playmakers who will make up for the differential in talent that he may have as a first year passer. George kittle, Brandon ayu debo Samuel, all players who can do special things after the catch. I don't need him to be Joe Montana. I just need him to be a guy and get the ball in the hands of his players. And Trey Lance will end up with solid passing numbers and possibly fantastic rushing numbers and will finish as a top 5 quarterback. Matt, your second of two, peacock offs. Adam Thielen is a wide receiver one. Thielen is currently going off the board at number 73 first pick in the 7th round, ADP, a wide receiver number 31 off the board. And all he's done for you in the last 28 games that he's played is score 24 touchdowns. Just almost a touchdown per game. And that was in the run first, run second, run early and often Mike Zimmer offense. And now he's got new head coach Kevin O'Connell, a former quarterback former rams offensive coordinator. He's ready to pass the ball, especially near the stripe when he was at the rams last year. Kevin O'Connell's offense through the ball inside the ten yard line the second most in the league. Cooper Cup who lines up similarly to Thielen on the field. Led the league in inside the ten targets. Now the question for Thielen is always health. Can he stand the field for 17 games? If he can, double digit touchdowns are a lock because he did that in each of the last two seasons, seals that way. There was only 7 other wide receivers to hit the ten touchdown mark last year. And from a PPG perspective points per game, Thielen was pretty much even with T Higgins, jaylen waddle, Mike Williams, all of those guys are getting drafted as wide receiver ones. Why not Adam Thielen? I like it. That one. See, I like yours. You don't

"Sad trombone ski. No, that's happy. That's the happy trombone right there. Trending towards the starting job. Well, he is happy about that. That's right. Mason Rudolph has looked okay, but it's mason Rudolph. They know that he's not the solution. Kenny Pickett appears Destin to learn from the bench for a while, at least. And learn from the best. Hold on. Let's go to the Atlanta Falcons, Matt. Cordaro Patterson is getting almost all the looks with the top offense. Tyler Alger and Damien Williams are far behind both probably just go line only options. Also, Kyle Pitts has almost exclusively played wide receiver all camp. Slot and wide out side. Wow. You don't say. Cincinnati Bengals, Brian. No timetable for Joe burrows returned from an appendectomy, but not too concerned about that. I'm sure you'll be ready to go come week one. The biggest news from Bengals camp is Lyle Collins, one of the three newly acquired elite offensive linemen has been cleared to return to practice, so yeah, you gotta love what since he has done this off season bolstering that offensive line. But I might be out on Joe burrow based on his cost in drafts right now. We'll talk about that a little later, but that Bengals line is going to be much, much improved. Forty-niners Brandon ayu getting a lot of praise from coaches and teammates, which is the exact opposite of what he was getting at this time last year. Sure. And he had the very slow start to the season. Players and coaches going out of their way to praise the player. Now in his third preseason, looks like he's going to be ready for a fast start to the season, but how much passing will we see from Trey Lance by all accounts Trey Lance's pre season so far and training camp has been inconsistent, especially as a passer, will the forty-niners limit the passing of Trey Lance that is certainly going to be something we'll be watching closely. Matt, let's go to the Arizona Cardinals. Daryl Williams came over from Kansas City and he's been pretty much absent in training camp, not a bright spot at all. Eno Benjamin looks like the clear number two. And he wasn't very good in action last year. I think James Connor could be an absolute bell cow this year. Ravens, oh, now that's hang on. We're not to the ravens yet. That's me, Brian, I wasn't forgetting you, Jaguars, please. I love Dan Arnold. That's about it. Not a ton of news out of Jaguar's camp. James Robinson has been practicing with the team, but only an individual drills, not team drills, so don't like his chances to be ready for week one, Travis Etienne, the clear cut starter, but your guy charged snoop Connor. It's going to be in line for some early season work, a great late round option. And I think you pegged that last week or mentioned that. It was my sleeper of the week last week's snoop Connor. Now let's go to the ravens. In Thursday night's game, Tyler Huntley, very sharp. In my mind, Tyler Huntley is the only backup quarterback worth drafting and even then it's in bigger leagues because he gives you rushing passing upside. We saw him in an extended month so or so of starts last year in which he looked pretty darn good and he was on fire on Thursday. The rare handcuffed quarterback. The rare handcuffed quarterback and if it comes down to taking Baker Mayfield or Tyler Huntley, why draft Baker Mayfield? Here you can get Tyler Holly where if you in theory, you shouldn't need to start baker at any point in time. Tyler Huntley, if anything to happen in Baltimore and he's starting games, you know, you've got a potential top ten quarterback because of the rushing passing combo that he brings. Yeah, the ravens have a buy in week ten. And odds are you're not going to bench Lamar Jackson unless he's hurt. So even if you don't draft Lamar, I'm with the Huntley is drafted even without Lamar, but if you do draft Lamar, the backup I'm drafting is Tyler Huntley and then if I stop baker Mayfield. Then I'll worry about it in week ten if you can reach it back up front. Quarterback. Totally agree. Last thing I want to mention about the ravens. They've got this rookie tight end who's obviously Mark Andrews as a lead and this guy's not probably going to be a factor this year. But for those in dynasty and empire leagues, keep track of tight end, Isaiah likely. He was getting rave reviews and camp. And I was like, yeah, I don't know, whatever, he's behind Mark Andrews. Then on Thursday night, guy made a couple of great place. They gave him a bubble screen to the right, and he made it, he made a defender who was about two yards away from him, completely with his whole body, and then charged forward. And then he made a nice downfield contested catch on the left side of the field. It's Mark Andrews that he stuck behind. He's a tight end. You know, you're not gonna have to remember Isaiah likely for very long. But just, you know, in deep leagues where you can develop guys. Let's keep track of them a little bit. Two teams left. Chicago Bears, Matt. All pro linebacker roquan Smith requested a trade and Khalil, Herbert, AKA the ground bear, has been very impressive in camp. The bears may use him even more this year to spell David Montgomery. Completely missed my, I had totally forgotten. I forget about that. I'm glad. We got to find ways to work snoop Connor into our conversations more often. You figured it out already. Yes, and our final team is going to be the San Diego. Sorry, Los Angeles chargers, Brian. Mitchell palooza, what a great party that was. That's remember that clip is from. Is it? Yeah. Not old school. Yeah, it's old school. Yeah. Anyway, chargers real quick, why do receiver Joshua Palmer making a splash in Cambodia? A lot of people are pegging him for a breakout season. Clearly, the wide receiver three from the charters that have something would have happened to Mike Williams or Keenan Allen. We'll talk more about him later. More Josh. All right. His name is not the last time you're going to hear his name on the show. Thank you for listening fantasy football weekly.

I'm looking a little bit more at the run line personally, but I think it's just so important when taking a look at this run line is taking a look at the home and road splits. Greg bederson is not normal. Instead of having a life, he spends his nights going through countless stats and systems. This was in spite of which I wound up saying guardians at a minus one 52 on the money by on the baseball betting show. Greg goes through every game on the slate and gives you his betting analysis. I do think that the braves should be right right about a minus one 80 ish favorite. I was sending it more around minus one 65 and 8 or one side be looking at and over. Nobody can cram more baseball betting information into one show than Greg Peterson. This is about how much I do wind up saying my driller maybe .3 with the way that console has been pretty unequivocal and keep in mind this is still a night game out there

"Left off guys on the rams, reason for trepidation about Matthew Stafford's bulky. I love the word bulky. Bulky, I may work it in a few times in this show. I like balki from perfect strangers. Do you? Yeah, he was great. One of my favorites. Yeah, did you know we had a balky elbow? Oh, yeah. Bulky bulky elbow. For Stafford continuing to experience discomfort going back to last season. And that's why I'm worried. As if this is a 2021 injury that he still got pain in now, is it gonna be better or worse in October? Are you ready for Tommy John surgery? Let's hope that is not going to be the case. I'll also know Darryl Henderson getting a lot of first team reps and it looks like the ramps are going to try to be cautious with cam Akers here. It's possible that we're going to see some kind of a timeshare that goes into the season as well between those two. I bet Stafford has consulted good friend Clayton Kershaw. Didn't he at some point? I don't know if he did. Maybe. We don't want to talk about baseball. No. No. Let's go to something we know about. That'd be the Philadelphia Eagles, Matt. Yeah, if you check Twitter, the AJ Brown versus James Bradbury battles have been really cool to watch. But the big news, Jason Kelsey, recently had a minor elbow surgery. He's hopeful that he's ready for week one. They said he might miss a week or two though. Yeah, obviously one of the best linemen in league. Yeah, that would be a loss if he can't, he's not ready for the start of the season. Let's go to Miami, Brian. Yeah, if you're on Twitter and looking at dolphins Twitter, specifically, all signs point to them having the greatest offense ever, but basically the hype is out of control down in Miami, but the player I'll highlight here is Chase Edmonds who now looks like the clear cut RB one for the dolphins and he's going outside the top 24 running backs right now based on most ADPs so I think that's a draft day steel right now. He looks like she's going to be the starter in a very proficient offense. It might be Daniel gonna do in Miami what he ultimately did in San Francisco, which is, you know, I got a lot of running backs, but I'm going to have a workhorse back. Pick one. And if you can find that workhorse back, they're all going at a heavy discount. Sure. Well, Edmunds is the one who's getting paid like a worker who works back. My bets are on him right now. In Minnesota, Kirk Cousins has COVID. He had COVID last year, missed his only start as a Viking due to COVID. So this is a second time around, presumably this is the lightweight version and that he will be a 100% probably in a week and I think week one is in no doubt here and maybe it's all the better that he gets it out of the way now. And that's true. Even more immunity for the regular season, irv Smith had surgery on his thumb last week, tight end, he is targeting a return also around week one. Lots of praise for Kevin O'Connell's offense from nearly all members of the Vikings offense, and right now it seems like a fresh new and exciting offense for the Minnesota Vikings. Let's go to the Dallas Cowboys. Trevon Diggs quit social media. Probably because of all the camp video of him getting roasted by CD lamb and Jalen tolbert. Obviously he had a lot of interceptions last year, but he's not a great cover corner at all. So I love the most yards in the NFL. And he's covered last year. So he's sick of everybody banging on him so he quit. Let's go to the Patriots, Brian. Running back James White retired earlier in the week. So he's obviously not playing this year. Damien Harris, all of a sudden, rumored to be on the trading block, or they might trade him, so as a result, Ramon ray Stevenson has jumped Paris in ADP and just surging up draft boards right now. Yeah, I'm not totally sure where these rumors have come from, but the Vegas odds to lead the NFL in rushing touchdowns. Stevenson was 50 to one a week ago, and now he's sitting at like ten to one. Wow. So there are a lot of people and as we've often mentioned, we talk a lot about what happens inside the 5 yard line on the show, the infrared zone. Something likes to call it. No team has run more, had more running plays inside the 5 over the last 7 years than New England Patriots. And if Harris is to be traded, obviously Stevenson's huge jump in massive, massive jump up. But Pierre, strong junior, the name to keep in mind, rookie running back drafted in the fourth round by the Patriots kind of more of a pass catching specialist. He probably will play that James White role, even though reminder Stevenson is a very able pass catcher too, but yeah, stock on Stevenson just soaring right now. Let me mention a couple of things about James White. Three times Super Bowl champion only player with a Super Bowl walk off touchdown in NFL history and that was the 2017 comeback against the falcons in which he was targeted 16 times and caught 14 passes for 110 yards for James White and get this 8 seasons. He touched the ball 800 times no fumbles. Wow. That's how you get into Bill Belichick's good grace. Isn't it? Right there. It was a hell of a run for James White and congratulations on a great career. Only 30 years old, which is it's old for running back. They still stick. That's young, but yeah, he's walking away. That's for sure. For the saints, Michael Thomas ankle rehab is on track. He's practicing. He's looked great. A lot of positive reports out of training camp. It appears likely that he will be ready to start week one. His ADP also moving up quickly. Alvin Kamara's court date has been moved back to October. So it's possible the NFL will defer judgment on a possible suspension until after that court date maybe, but the NFL is not beholden to that. They don't need to do that, but it's possible that they could. We're going to talk a little bit more about where to buy Alvin Kamara later in this show. Let's go to the New York Giants, Matt. Kenny gallaudet is the talk of camp for all the wrong adjectives, slow, stiff, bad body language, zero separation, some speculated him as a possible cut candidate, but they can't cut him for two years because of the cap liabilities. But if any team came knocking in the trade market, they could have him for nothing. 7th round pick. Gettleman. 70 $1 million for Kenny gallaudet. Yeah. Just two off seasons ago. Well, wait, one off season ago. Let's go to the Tennessee Titans. Brian. Nothing but bad things being said about 18th overall pick, wide receiver treylon Burks, who has been not running with the ones. Meanwhile, rookie wide receiver Kyle Phillips, who was drafted in the 5th round, has been running with the ones, and more bad things to say about Burke's on Thursday night against the Patriots, the Titans rested their normal starters, Robert Woods, and nwi, but Burke's played Burke's also came into the game after Dez Fitzpatrick, racy mcmath in the aforementioned Kyle Phillips in just one target. Wow. I'm 30 snaps for perks on Thursday night. So stock falling right now for perks. At least in redraft right now. He's not looking like an immediate impact player. And if we're gonna talk about Thursday, we gotta talk about Malik Willis. I watched every one of his every one of his snaps. The first few throws were terrible, and it was all the bad things you'd ever seen about him, but when he got comfortable, he made some, he made some eye popping plays with his legs, but also had some really nice passes mixed in there. And you saw a player and look, it's only the first preseason game his entire career, and nobody's carving a bust in canton here. And I walked in the door, having seen the highlights from the game, and I was like, oh, I'm gonna really watch all of this to make sure I'm not just looking at the highlights. He looked pretty poised, pretty comfortable and delivered a lot of nice passes. Yeah, he's been falling too far in dynasty leagues, especially super flex leagues. He's definitely a project still. So I'm not thinking he'll have an immediate, even if something happens to Tannehill, but he should be bumped up dynasty draft boards based off Thursday night. Agreed. For the Steelers, rookie wide receiver George pickens was listed as a starter on the team's first step chart, although again, you don't know, we don't know what that really means. And Mike Tomlin has gone out to discredit the depth chart as well.

Naomi Osaka Offends Swahili Speakers
"Naomi Osaka, the kind of player who is just a real big pain in the ass. I like to fire up cross court shot of her face, Naomi Osaka announced last week that she's partnered with LeBron James company Spring Hill to start a new media company. A media company from the girl who doesn't want to talk to the media. And you explain that to me? Naomi Osaka expressed the hope that it would produce TV shows and documentaries and branded content. Again, this is the fraud who doesn't like attention thrust on her. This is the woman who had to step away from competitive tennis for her mental health sake. She said, and then she went on to do a few magazine covers and went to the Met ball in New York City, dressed like a fucking peacock with feathers in her hair. Don't believe anything she says. Now get this, the name of a new venture, she called it Hannah kuma, what she said means flower bear in Japanese. Hold that, hold it because it didn't take long for the Japanese Haitian Osaka to discover, oh, that phrase has another meaning in Swahili in Swahili. I'm not even sure why we care about this Swahili content, but it's why Healy it translates to women with that of a giant. Let's not forget there are 200 million people who speak Swahili, which is the majority of East Africa. So dozens of losers on Twitter in Africa piled on her and they begged her, they urged Osaka to this reconsider that name. They called it offensive. Of course they did. Of course they did. Everybody's offended now by something.
Karine Jean-Pierre's 'Hits' When Talking About Donald Trump
"I saw Montage last night on Tucker Carlson's show. Of Kareem Jean Pierre. She's made a number of cable news appearances all, of course, on MSNBC and CNN and left leaning networks. Listen to the hits, condensed in one 62nd Montage of the brand new White House press secretary. Donald Trump is running a racist campaign. The grand wizard of the birther movement, which birtherism is inherently racist. By the way, he's a racist and a bigot, which we are already new. Walks like a racist, talks like a racist, acts like a racist. It is a racist. And we saw all these awful voter suppression laws, which is really racism, just across the country. And we have a racist president in The White House. Who really pushes his racism like a peacock, because I'll say this, we knew Donald Trump was a racist. I wanted to ask you just change the topic for just a quick second about Donald Trump's racist tweets. The systemic racism and how that has affected our country. Donald Trump is the most outwardly racist president that we have seen in generations. This country needs to start talking about uprooting institutional racism. Fox News was racist before coronavirus. They are racist during the coronavirus, Fox News will be racist after the coronavirus. That's my favorite clip. Fox News was racist before the coronavirus during the coronavirus and post coronavirus. Now, according to her network that she used to work for, coronavirus had been going anywhere, it surging, and we all should be terrified. More on that in just a moment.

As of august only twenty nine percent say the country is headed in the right direction. Wonder was it an illusion to think that in times of crisis americans have always come together or have we as a people really changed that much since nine eleven. I think our system has basically broken down in the last twenty years in a way that no longer do we. Are we in a position to depend on the kind of unity for instance that we saw after pearl harbor with franklin roosevelt in nineteen forty
TV's White Guys Are in Crisis
"So we're going to try this episode to critique the position of white guys on television without sort of repeating the problem that white guys on television currently present which is that. they're not the point and yet they're the point. I want to dive in by talking about this great piece. Catherine wrote for vulture about the crisis. That white guys are going through genetic. Maybe you'd think it's not really an emergency. So bad so white guys are still of course all over television as they are in the world but they are on television in a different way in certainly in some new shows and they have been in the past. And you can see that in shows like peacock sitcom rutherford falls. Amc's genre bending. Kevin can himself and the two big hits of summer. Hbo's hotel drama. The white lotus featuring a bevy of white guys who were going to get into and of course ted lasso. Basically the white guy who used to be. Tv's default protagonists are not but who are they. What does it say about them. And us catherine have i. We're gonna keep talking now. I would just shamelessly coach from your piece. So why don't you tell us. It's central argument. Yeah for what i think the framing of it as a crisis it has been really interesting to see responses from two different sides of sort of people who look at the headline that are immediately put off by it. People who are like. I don't want to hear about a crisis for white guys like i'm done. We talked about them too much. And then of course from the other like terrifying side of white guys being like extremely mad at me and sending me all kinds of emails but it was in response to something.

"The Maison with Kevin Nation. I've always been fascinated a, we get attached to certain television shows people to this day even though the Big Bang has been off for a few years now, still want to know what Penny's last name was. It was never revealed. They're always certain little details of shows that people talk about another show. People talk about a lot is the office. It's probably more popular. Now in syndication now on Netflix or is it peacock? I can't keep track whatever it's going to be on and the one thing they talk about with the office is not Michael Scott, it's about the Scranton Strangler a little side bit that kind of ran through a few seasons. And somebody just recently came out with the fact that the Scranton Strangler could be David Wallace from the home headquarters and the actor who played David Wallace said, it could be nobody ever decided to the Scranton Strangler was going to be. It was just kind of a little side job story. But of course, the obsessed people who follow the show want to know, they won't be satisfied until they do find out. And then of course, they still won't be satisfied. That's the amazing thing about the television shows. We love how we stay, so attached for a long, long time.

I actually didn't get the job. But i asked him for an internship unpaid. They gave it to me. They offered me a position three months later and pay for the summer and that was kind of the first piece in the combining two pieces that ended up getting more into the combination of it and finance which led me until company called tech systems which was trying to take staffing to the next level by taking like things like project management program management outsourcing. Things like that you know. I'm max moves stuff like that and so it just kinda built. I found myself in a good spot when a growing organization and you know one led to another and twenty years later.

Four came <Speech_Male> out on each wheel. Max <Speech_Male> and of course nielsen's <Speech_Male> not monitoring <Speech_Male> each mix <Speech_Male> up at this point <Speech_Male> so the question <Speech_Male> is how exactly <Speech_Male> is it that <Speech_Male> this could be <Speech_Male> true. You can't say <Speech_Male> that this is <Speech_Male> positively true. <Speech_Male> Considering <Speech_Male> you're not monitoring <Speech_Male> the other film <Speech_Male> now as it turns out <Speech_Male> somehow <Speech_Male> warnermedia gate <Speech_Male> gave access to <Speech_Male> nielsen for <Speech_Male> the week <Speech_Male> that week <Speech_Male> on. Hbo max <Speech_Male> and specifically <Speech_Male> he was found <Speech_Male> out that one hundred ninety <Speech_Male> four was <Speech_Male> viewed two <Speech_Male> point two <Speech_Male> billion <Speech_Male> minutes of <Speech_Male> streaming over the course <Speech_Male> of the week that <Speech_Male> means it was thirty <Speech_Male> five percent <Speech_Male> better than the one <Speech_Male> point seven billion <Speech_Male> minutes that <Speech_Male> seoul had <Speech_Male> overrun disney plus <Speech_Male> which is a huge <Speech_Male> jump. <Speech_Male> The other thing to consider <Speech_Male> is that wonder <Speech_Male> woman did have <Speech_Male> forty five minutes <Speech_Male> longer of <Speech_Male> a runtime <Speech_Male> compared to seoul. <Speech_Male> There's that <Speech_Male> but it does show that <Speech_Male> one. The <Speech_Male> film did very <Speech_Male> well and <Speech_Male> this is actually a <Speech_Male> finite wait now. Not <Speech_Male> that i was saying that <Speech_Male> seoul couldn't <Speech_Male> and like i said last week <Speech_Male> soleden <Speech_Male> isn't necessarily <Speech_Male> the film that <Speech_Male> wasn't going to be number <Speech_Male> one viewed because <Speech_Male> as as twenty <Speech_Male> point last week. <Speech_Male> The big thing <Speech_Male> is that it's <Speech_Male> charge. It's a <Speech_Male> film meant for children. <Speech_Male> Which means they're gonna <Speech_Male> watch it over <Speech_Male> again and over <Speech_Male> again and that's going <Speech_Male> to rack up minutes. <Speech_Male> Children's content <Speech_Male> gets <Speech_Male> viewed a lot more <Speech_Male> than adult content. <Speech_Male> So while <Speech_Male> it wasn't sitting here saying <Speech_Male> that it wasn't possible <Speech_Male> for solar. It's actually surprising <Speech_Male> that one <Speech_Male> woman nineteen eighty-four <Speech_Male> one was <Speech_Male> viewed. Just <Speech_Male> that much more a means <Speech_Male> that more people <Speech_Male> turned <Speech_Male> out to watch it <Speech_Male> that maybe <Speech_Male> the number of people <Speech_Male> that actually turned <Speech_Male> out to watch soul <Speech_Male> so i mean great on. Hbo <Speech_Male> max for this. <Speech_Male> I hope that this means <Speech_Male> that very soon here. <Speech_Male> We're going to be getting more <Speech_Male> numbers from nielsen <Speech_Male> when it comes to hbo. <Speech_Male> Max we know <Speech_Male> that nielsen has stated <Speech_Male> that peacock. Hmx <Speech_Male> are going to start <Speech_Male> being monitored <Speech_Male> in twenty twenty one. <Speech_Male> I just hope <Speech_Male> that it's happening <Speech_Male> sooner rather <SpeakerChange> than later <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> with that. That <Speech_Male> is everything for <Speech_Male> this episode. <Speech_Male> Be sure to check <Speech_Male> out the show notes <Speech_Male> for all the articles <Speech_Male> we talked about here <Speech_Male> and a <Speech_Male> bunch of articles that we <Speech_Male> have not talked about. That <Speech_Male> have happened <Speech_Male> over the past week. <Speech_Male> In addition <Speech_Male> to that you can check out the trailers <Speech_Male> that we have <Speech_Male> that have come <Speech_Male> out over the past week <Speech_Male> as well.

"So plane. Oh i'm not going to say it piper said. I'm going to sing really gets you know really gets you loved. Brady is the only club i care to be. Part of pretty makes me happy and important to one doesn't have to be that brady just brady are. Then you feel as he's finished. Singing piper fanned out his fantastic feathers and shown in the sun. He looked with a smug smile at jane as if he was expecting her to applaud. That's enough. Jane said whatever. I'm playing but i can do lots of other stuff. I can do things that take way more talent and our way cooler than just having some shiny feathers oh sure slurred the peacock. Whatever you have to tell yourself plain. Jane the gangly crane once again. Human footsteps crunched in the woods nearby. Now if you'll excuse me. I have another member of the adoring public to greet. Will this one give the pretty birds snack or will they just want me to model for them. The future remains to be seen but it looks bright for a beautiful boy like me. Gruff old man entered their little grassy spot. He was dressed in drab greens with an orange vest and hat. Oh look at that pretty bird. He said to the peacock he held his hands behind his back and walked towards piper Oh and a little plane friend to. He added looking at jane. He called me plain. Jane thought miserably but at least he saw me here. Pretty boy the old man said. I have something for you. Piper turned and smirked at jane and then straight up to the old man. That's ride. He could just a little closer piper fan his feathers and got up close. Oh perfect the old man said and he pulled his hunting rifle from behind his back. Now hold still piper look out. Jane squawked as the rifle blasted thunder the peacock tired at the sound of her voice and the bullet him by an inch so close. It ruffled his feathers. Jane hollered and both birds barreled into the brush behind them. They heard the hunter curse and stop after them. Come out come out pretty bird. He called. I wanna have you for dinner huddled in a bush. The birds realized there was nowhere to go. The hunter stopped closer. He would be on them any second. What will we do. Wobbled panicked peacock. We shouted jane. there is no we like. I told you before. There's plenty of great things that i can do. That don't involve being pretty like watt. Well for starters. I can fly. Jane said and now it was her turn to smirk. And now i'm gonna fly myself right on out of here but don't worry i'm sure you're pretty behind will look right on that hunters dinner table your going to leave me your pretty and perfect and you said that's all you need. You don't want any help from plain. Jane the gangly crane Freddie matters more than anything you told me. That's what you've been singing and i to you closely. It looks like you were on. The hypothesis fell through. One of us can fly away and sadly it's not you. Jane looked at piper for a long time. I'm sorry jane. He said i was such a bully for such a long time. I know i don't deserve your help. I'll run out and distract the hunter and you fly away. Okay no what do you mean. No let me do this for you. Now we're going to gather together how the hunters footsteps closer his rifle leveled near the ground at peacock. Kite come out pretty birdy come out come out wherever you. The birds exploded from the bush in a flurry of feathers. The hunter tumbled backwards onto his rear end and his rifle flew into the grass. What in the world he shouted and he watched gangly flap her way into the sky with the round. Little peacock clutched tightly in her talons jet. Black hair never. Jane shouted laughing as she fought her way into the sky and flapping into the distance. Oh i'm flying said piper. As he watched the ground drop away beneath him. I can't believe you can just do this. Wow i'm flying. This is so much better than being pretty. They both have their benefits. Gene said and together. They flew safely over the horizon and after that piper told all of the other peacocks with jane had done and none of them were ever mean to her again but of course they did ask for the occasional ride.

She was resting her wings in the sun and plucking berries from a nearby bush. She was a long and gangly thing awkward to look at she had thin spindly legs and a thin spindly neck and a long pointed beak the other. Birds were mean to her a lot because of how she looked so she mostly kept to herself. It could be a little lonely. But jane thought it was better than being teased all day with a sigh. She flexed her wings and settled into the grass. She had spent the morning flying hard to reach her favourite berry patch and she needed a rest before she turned and flew back home. Unfortunately she was rudely interrupted a peacock started into her grassy resting. Spot head held high. He looked at jane with a little twitch of his beak as though just seeing her were an affront to his senses jane recognized him as piper. A particularly pernicious pain per nisus is a fancy word. Meaning that something could hurt you. In a sneaky way and jane thought it fit piper like a glove hello piper she said wishing her wings were arrested and she could just take off into the air. Oh if it isn't blame jane piper. The peacock clocked plain jane. The gangly crane. what are you doing here. These are the beautiful berries for the beautiful birds. Jane looked up inside. The peacock was beautiful. All round and robust his iridescent feathers winking electric blue and green and the high noon sun his neck was a graceful arch all blue and glittery and on his head was a tuft of feathers. I'm not bothering you. Jane said quietly and these berries are for everyone that may be so the peacock said but truly the view would be a lot prettier. If you weren't around it's not all about. Who is prettiest. Jane said that's what ugly people say just then. A whistling human hiker happened upon the birds. Oh look she said bird. Wild peacock haven't seen one of you before. Would you like a little snack. Pretty bird piper gave jane cocky wink. And then strutted towards the human. She rifled through her fanny pack and pulled out a bit of a granola bar. She held it out and cooed with delight when the peacock plucked it from her hand. What a pretty bird. She said again laughing. Well i'm offer my hike. Take care pretty bird whistling again. She headed away down. The trail piper shouted. She didn't even notice. You still think there's anything better than being pretty penny. Gets you praised pretty gets you. I can't think of anything i'd rather be instead. Peretti makes me special office. I know is true. The world is just my oyster. 'cause i'm radio then you your insufferable. Jane said fluffing her feathers once again she wished she could just fly away but her wings needed a little more rest. I don't understand why you have to be mean to me. Why can't you just leave me alone. Well because nothing makes me feel prettier than standing next to someone as plain as you. He said plain jane. The gangly crane. I maybe plane. But there's a lot i can do that. You can't like what be practically invisible. James started to reply but they were interrupted by a pair of humans hiking their way up the trail. Paul lock said the older one a big hairy human with a big hairy beard. It's a peacock. Wow dad it looked so cool said the little human boy with a sandy mop of hair. It's like a crazy blue. What a beautiful bird. The dad said digging in his backpack. He pulled out a camera and handed it to his son. Go ahead and get a picture. We won't get this gloss again. The boy snapped a few shots and jane could see piper fanning his feathers to look even more splendid than usual. All right time to go. The dad said call k the boy waived.

"About this Roku deal then the next day Oh that they're done and Texas you and you're like Oh. Yeah. This'll happen within twenty four hours. So it's a pretty crazy situation given in contrast like Hbo Max in in in their disagreement with Roku Amazon fire basically last Thursday late in the day, there was an us. There was a rumor floating around that NBC Universal was going to be was going to be pulling all of their APPs there. TV anywhere APPs from Roku, unless Roku let peacock onto the service for those of you. Who are wondering? What what, what does NBC universal have will have a lot I mean they have not only their news channels, sports channels, they also have NBC proper. They have Bravo, they have e they have a lot of individual APPs because they own a lot of different channels have USA. They have Sifi all these channels that are on cable and broadcast have individual APPs that you have access to of your cable provider that you can access. If you have Roku, it makes up a pretty good chunk of of channels I mean there's A, good collection of them that being said, it was it was kind of like hot. Well, that's one way to get. Roku. To kind of like move towards getting peacock on. That was the first headline then I think it was Friday morning. There was word that came out that said that there was a deal in place for peacock two-lane on the service, but it completely fell through and now all the any anywhere APPs from NBC universal coming off the service within the next two weeks, which was a surprise because you would think that. There'd be deals in place where they can't just take them off but you know because everybody always talks about like, oh, well, prime video signed a new deal with CBS all access to keep the service on for multiple years. You know it doesn't just come up incidentally that all of them are up at the same exact time because CBS Alexis is its own thing while paramount Viacom said, yes, it is has a lot of different. Also, they have their own CBS anywhere app they have other channels like the paramount network they have MTV. Nickelodeon they have other channels that exist within you know broadcast and cable that have their own anywhere to you don't hear about them being linked at the same time. So then by Friday Friday ad evening, it was announced stats that there was a deal in place but nobody had officially said anything I believe it was like Saturday morning I woke up and I saw on twitter there was a there was a comment from peacock stating that they were so happy that's Roku was joining the fly playing off of their their bird analogies they've used so many times. During the marketing of peacock but they said that and then broke who official comment that said that within the coming within the next couple weeks Roku we're going to be adding peacock to the service, and then what was even crazier was by Monday peacock was already on Roku was already available has we're talking now peacock is available on Roku devices all over the place. So within a matter of days this all took place and seemingly it seems as if the defining was NBC universal, potentially pulling their other serve their other streaming APPs from Roku and that being A. Also, there's word on the street that's their specific NBC universal content that will be licensed so that Roku can use on their individual roku channel, which is not a surprise because that's also what we've heard about Disney plus with Amazon and how I am dbt got certain shows that were part of ABC studios within the corporate umbrella of Disney that ended up at ATV that are licensed by Amazon, that could have potentially grease the wheels for. The deal that potentially needed to happen Disney plus Amazon because. Amazon Disney plus warrant there at the very from the very beginning either with deal, and then suddenly that was something that happened. So let's talk about that first, and then we'll talk about the ramifications for the future of what this means for Hbo Max. This whole situation was pretty crazy I it's so hard to compare different contract negotiations because each side has different, you know in goals. Each each deal is different but there is a lot of correlation there between you know an ad sport business and whatnot between each comebacks in the embassy peacock parts of the platform think having an an apple ready on the platform and probably had a decent amount of of of traffic on through it probably grease the wheels bit because there's something Roku doesn't want the bad press of like Oh. Yeah. Hey, this you know this. Streaming, partner is now non or platform anymore and do the country negotiation like that in a PR setting will look like inches crocus falter ready for them not coming together sooner versus like h Max. issue, Max was never on platform to begin with and you know there's there's that distinction of life or not me to for them to be on here until the deal is ready versus like you know renegotiation where Roku mind just seemed there being. Money hungry or some other type of energy described him for not re re upping the deal I think being on there before definitely helped advantage in think that you know peacock has come out and I think that they want their ads to be of at most five minutes I think coming out with some specifications of how they're doing ads before he really pushed into a corner of like, okay. We'll give him the set of constraints like there's no roof negotiation like they already promise customers and the customers are paying or will be paying or we'll be watching and really kind of stuck in a boat like, Hey, this is the best to do. There's no better negotiations..

". So going into last week, , what was the status quo of the standoff between Hbo Max Peacock on the Streamer side and then Roku and fire TV on the devices I'd. . So it was a rollback to May, , which was when if you're Max launched was surprise honestly all of us that HP the Roku Fire TV, , we're not going to have the HBO AD and. . That's still the case today <hes>. . You know it's been said launch. . Max's not been on either of those two devices against super popular like you said, , Roku TV, , they're really the least expensive streamers out there and you could you know so many people have them on TV's on on the street devices themselves. . So and then peacock which debuted nationwide in July also didn't have HBO Max <hes> and didn't have. . Sorry. . Didn't have a Roku or fire TV. . So again both those major services both <hes> you know had a lot of hype leading up to them in both kind of like. . You know they're not on these super popular devices. . So last Friday <hes> that changed and Roku peacocks deal. So . finally, , Roku owners can watch peacock <hes> just like everybody else right. . So what are the I'm sure that you it's been similar for you like me I've even people that work at c net with us have message to me occasionally and been like w why can't I watch the streaming service? ? On my Roku or on fire, , you have you been getting a lot of reader reaction to the fact that. . We had readers were really like I think a lot of years that are in the know are Kinda like <unk> at this point like they're they're they're they. . They know that it's an issue in the they do complain about especially when they hear about new stuff on on either service potentially but we had a discussion internally about the editor's choice award, , which is something that we give to products. . We really like currently our editor's choice product is a roku streaming stare. . and. We're . like is worth polling this this this award, , you know give them a little bit of time still especially going into the fall season, , but you know it's a big issue offer us evaluating these products so yet again it was it was a surprise. . People are still kind of mystify that these massive services from the media companies they can't agree to deal to just get the basic APP on their devices. . So also, , can you talk a little bit about? ? What are people missing out on Hbo Max Peacock in addition to being new services especially with Max been a little confusing for people to understand any way. . It doesn't help if you can't watch these services on like the most popular things that people watch the but give people sense. You . know what are they missing out on if they are Roku or fire TV users, , what are they missing by not having a up until last week not having access to both HBO Maxine PGA While I. . Think Big Picture. . You're missing more <hes> on peacock the Max at least in the beginning because. . If. You're . a Roku or a fire TV user. . You can get the regular HBO APP still. . So you can watch <hes> you know all the shows that are on HBO succession, , which just one. . In the EMMYS did really well, , all those hbo things there on both Max and regular HBO. . The things that you're missing on MACs are primarily friends <hes>, , which obviously is is the big marquee feature there and those Hbo, , Max. . Originals. . So that's on there. . If you're if you're Roku or five TV subscriber, , you can't watch those my kids really like the elmo show on for example. . Like he gets up at elmo goes and does a late night show. . It's called the not. . So late show with ELMO and <hes>. . You know we watch that on our apple TV you know the one time we don't use Roku our house right off because you can't you can't watch it on the Roku. . With peacock I think their catalog is a is a little bit less compelling overall <hes>. . You know it's a less expensive service. . It's free. . But. . Again, , you're missing a lot of their back catalogue ABC has or NBC. Sorry . <unk> NBC shows. . <hes> law and order Svu as well as a parks and recreation thirty rock big names like that. . You can stream on peacock and you can't get those on other services however <hes>, , for example, , those are both of those <hes> comedies thirty rock in. . Parts of the wreck are on Hulu. . Hulu Subscriber, , obviously, , you got Hulu APP on your fire TV or Roku. . So you're not missing quite as much I think <hes> if you're a again a Roku Amazon Rtd user with peacock. . So you know it's it's it's it's very complicated, , and then these services have different tiers right so at the end of the day, , it's it's hard to Parse it all and you can get a Lotta these shows on different services. If . you look around

"Win Scenario for every player involved, and we're gonNA talk about The net flicks quarter to results in a minute, but right before the quarter to results were actually revealed, and they had their investor call. They actually announce that Ted Sarandon. Who has been the content chief for Netflix's? For quite some time? He was actually promoted to Cosio with along with re- hastings and they're going to be managing the company together, which makes perfect sense content goes hand in hand with the company of the contents, not successful at athletes than dean. Fails it's not like other companies. All Disney has other things that can prop them up if Disney pluses and doing so well, they have theme parks and merchandise that can help them. You know whether the storm of having some bad projects you have. Hbo Max and obviously these are newer players to the streaming world, but you have HBO Max which is obviously owned by Warner media, which is part of et at and T. can weather the storm of some bad projects that each mags or within Warner media because they have a larger groups anything with peacock with comcast. There's an end same thing with Apple Apple TV plus is obviously spending insane amount of money. Apple can obviously float that money despite the fact that they don't have anywhere near that number of subscribers, and would actually warrant some of these purchases that they've been doing Netflix's however is very reliant on the fact that they have to have good content in order to be successful to have. An to be successful, the content has to continue to bring in subscribers so content and the business side of of networks goes hand in hand, no questions so it makes perfect sense that be Biko CEO's even if it is, it's an uncommon thing that we're seeing in the business world right now I'm happy for Ted Sorrento's I think this is a a long time coming This is from from people that I've heard enough lakes. How NETFLIX's operated. It really was Sorrento's in hastings. As co CEOS effectively co CEOS, even although surrender was the CEO for a long time, he had that same leadership position people at the company. Company felt that he had a an equal say in the direction of the company and makes sense given where the company was. I mean hastings is the most trusted with with net flicks. He started the company I mean. I could pretty much take. Let's say nephews when be Netflix is today without Sorrento in has pushed for original content, now really pushed the boundaries, and really I it solidified that streaming could be could be an is a thing as you can deliver great TV, great content via the Internet doesn't have to be through cable so everything his push Virgil continent ethics be where where it is the market leader. Household Synonym what we think of Netflix us. Today is the big player so with him I think things would be totally different. This is a much well the promotion with all the players in the market right now and all the competition that Netflix has that they have steadily ship as the before it so happy for Netflix, and this is fantastic all right so jumping over prime video Amazon surprise. Surprise surprise launched a live television Tier Germany. Now you might be thinking to yourself. Wait. Isn't this something that just got brought up recently? Yes, it's only been something that we've been talking about for multiple months, but more specifically, we've mentioned it in the last couple of weeks as well specifically, the the business positions that they were currently hiring for specifically looking for some within live linear television and And it makes sense that this is happening to give you just an idea, because obviously this is, it seems like a pilot program currently, in Germany, but there is a live tear. That is available four through prime four prime customers in Germany that allows them to watch thirty eight different channels from public broadcasters, and out of those twenty eight are in hd channels. That is grades because that also. Also means that. If you put that into perspective, E is entirely possible. The NETFLIX's season fact working on something very soon here that could want in other markets. This is something that could have been maybe a little bit easier in a good way to test it, but this is something that I'm telling. Everybody is going to happen sooner rather than later Amazon. We'll be getting into the live TV. Industry when it comes to the US and they're going to put all these other players that have been raising their prices on notice. We've been talking about it for for a little bit, and I'm a little bit happy that we guessed correctly. Are we deduced correctly I? Guess, but I'm happy. Is still a shock that they are doing their full blown going into live television. We we've been seeing like the business positions like we talked about. They've been delving more into life sports and last two to three years, surely dubbing onto that and so We knew the fringe that some length. This was going to happen, but to get three channels just broadcast in Germany I think this is a great test market a mcgrory to figure out how it works with the prime platform to see if you know because once again. The way. How Amazon desert streaming in prime video in general. is a little different from other streaming partners is that the players is is that streaming is not the core business or a central tenant of the business? You know for Disney It's not part of the fly will per se but I mean it's not the main business for he's the players, but for for for Amazon prime video is to push via subscriptions and to get more people to use Amazon. Amazon in general, so I'm curious. How will the the data which we probably won't see any of the data? We'll see the choices in response of the data that gets of in-flight Tele. Having live television as a prime video option boosts as prime subscription. Since the case then we could definitely see them reaching out to more and more different markets, but if we see that okay, it's a pilot in Germany. Germany doesn't really move anywhere. Obviously, the can probably be good indicator that life television, although I think it's GonNa. Be Good Luck. Television is a nice feature to have as part of your prime subscription. It's not driving prescription sales fest. The case is probably not going to watch this any further test markets at least for the next few years until they get more data and more and more and more of a handle health market that. What this is proof concept that it can dr price descriptions previous. On premise descriptions and get more people to use Amazon salvage..
"peacock" Discussed on KCRW's Hollywood Breakdown

If you're a comcast subscriber you are going to be able. We'll get peacock premium for free with ads. Or if you pay five bucks you're going to be able to get it ad free for those of us who don't subscribe to comcast's ask cable. There is peacock premium for ten dollars and peacock with ads for five dollars right. So if you don't have comcast or Cox doc I guess you can pay the ten dollars per month for access to fifteen thousand hours of live and on demand content or if you don't WanNa pay the ten bucks per month you can pay five per month and watch the stuff with ads. And there's a lot of stuff I mean if you look at the things they've announced you know. In addition to shows like the office and Dan you know movies that are going to be hoarded from the NBC library. They're doing a lot of originals. That are going to debut here. There's everything from things like Punky GI brewster sequel show two projects with Dick Wolf. And Amy Poehler Norman. Lear a lot of interesting stuff is going to be here on peacock. Yeah it's it's not quite the you know all the sort of meat and potatoes down there middle stuff. I think certain people were expecting for example. The Norman Lear project has is called clean slate at stars. Laverne Cox. She is the daughter of a old school car. Wash owner who is so happy that his estranged child is coming back to Alabama after many years but then it turns out that the estranged son is now an estranged daughter Played by the fantastic Laverne Laverne Cox so. That sounds very like Norman Lear and that is going to be one of the offerings. There's also something about called expecting about a young woman who is Sir no longer. Quite as young as she used to be and decides she wants to have a baby with her gay best friend so and and then there's something about the advent of twitter. I mean there's there's quite a mix if if you're a law and order fan you're you're going to end up wanting to get this and you can get a free version called peacock free but you won't get access you'll only get about half of the programming coming off offered on the premium version An you know a delay on the on the current NBC shows. So you won't get everything but you can get a version of this us for for free with ads. So that's their strategy. I know there's been some skepticism about it. I I I gotta think though that a lot of people who are sort of overwhelmed by all the a bigger numbers they're paying we'll look that's cheaper than Disney You know it's it's an inexpensive introductory price. At least yeah and this is part of the whole comcast a strategy. You mean they are hoping to get to thirty thirty five million subscribers in five years less than the ninety or so the Disney is looking for but but keep in mind that comcast is still very much in the cable business and they've approached this very much as a cable provider who is launching a supplementary service service for the people that are cord cutters and don't subscribe to comcast's but also for the people that do and there's going to be an advertising component that it is very big on this service unlike dizzy and unlike apple and unlike netflix. So they're going to have dual revenue streams here and they believe that each subscriber to this service will give them about ten will give them about seven dollars in revenue and that's a decent return. Yeah we'll see how it does I you know they're. They're also buying from all different suppliers instead of supplying everything themselves. So they're they're going their own way and we'll see how it works out. Thank you matt thank you. That's Matt Bellamy editorial director of the Hollywood reporter. He joins me this Monday at one.
