J. D. Vance: Tim Ryan Will Vote to Get Rid of the Filibuster
"And I just want to be clear I think I have been to the people in Ohio to conservatives and Republicans I've gotten to know you much much better and I have a great deal of respect for you and what you're doing and how you're going about doing it You're up against the Democrat party machine All of our guys and gals are pouring tons of money into these races to try and redefine who you are and to try and redefine who Tim reiners who the Democrat is And then they complain about dark money The other thing I'm worried about is they're at war on the constitution If this guy Tim Ryan goes then he's going to vote to get rid of the filibuster rule and they're going to ram through everything possible aren't they That's right And they've also he's voted to add Puerto Rico to the state list He's voted to add an additional state of course Washington D.C. That's four new Democrats That's exactly that's 40 Democrats that's awful for the United States Constitution And look you really Mark you know this better than I do But the constitution is fundamentally it's the set of rules that govern how we do self government in this country right And what I can't stand about this effort to change the filibuster to completely nationalize our elections to add new states so they can add more Democrats senators They're just trying to change the rules They know they can't win in a fair fight So they're trying to change the rules and it's one of the reasons why this election is so important because look of course I don't agree with Joe Manchin about most things I do give him credit for saving us from Washington D.C. as the 51st U.S. state I do give him credit for saving the filibuster but look can we count on them indefinitely I don't think that we can't

Kanye West's Latest Conspiracy
"And the last few weeks he has displayed both those attributes I want to say. But yeah, another day, another crazy Kanye West story. Whether you want to believe it's a conspiracy is up to you, but it turns out some of what he said on the Tucker Carlson show the other night, the people at Fox decided not to air because, well, he just sounded nuttier than it should house rat. In addition to tossing the word Jew around like crazy, which you don't want to do in Hollywood, at one point, Kanye mentioned something really bizarre. He claimed that fake children were planted in his home to a manipulate his kids. North his daughter who's 9, saint his son, who is 6 chicagos, another daughter who's four and psalm is his three year old son. Tucker wasn't quite sure what he meant and Kanye explained. He said, I mean like actors, professional actors placed into my home to sexualize my kids. Once again, I don't know what Kanye means. I did on yesterday's Patreon describe how their four year old daughter Chicago in a clip on Instagram was wearing full on makeup. Including lip liner, lipstick, lip gloss, probably a little foundation. I bet a touch of mascara too. She was going out with her mommy. I believe they were gonna see the LA rams play. And sit up in a private suite, but I was immediately disgusted to see that. I understand little girls want to play makeup with mommy. But playing with makeup and applying it are two different things. This was applied makeup. And I can't stand when people sexualize children, especially nowadays with all the crazy creeps and pedophiles roaming around. So I'm on Kanye's side completely when it comes to this and judging the way the females and that family have changed their faces and body types with tons of procedures and surgeries and Botox and fillers and God knows what else they have their hands on before the rest of the world knows about it. It's very unsettling.

"rams" Discussed on NFL Live
"Then NFC west rivalry, rams and forty-niners. Rams 24 17. The last thing I care about is being wrong. I'm picking a rims. I am more faith in this rams offense. Both sides. The sack. No, no. Stafford. This one is picked, there goes the funga touchdowns. Anyone want to change their pick? I'm not trying to mind. Terrific catching run. Ramsey can't bring him down. Samuel highlight reel touchdown. That is going to do it. The forty-niners are going to win it. I think it's best in the league. The NFL live curse is a lot of the level of starting off today. Well, this is a better way to start this. We all could have picked the forty-niners. We didn't. By the way, welcome to the show. We just hope that we don't pick your team to win. Marcus spears rides our dinner last year for the hour. All right, no one felt good about it. So you don't do it. You weren't the guy. Did you pick? I don't like the segregation. Come over here. Come on, man. Come over there. Good call. You're right. There we go. Later in the show. And if we're diversity matters, touch my hand. ESPN. Later in the show, an offensive trend that Dan is noticing that's taking the NFL back in time. In a crime is going to join for that discussion. But first, let's get back to Monday Night Football. I want to keep this orchestra music going. Rams against the forty-niners. We're going to pick it up late in the first. The forty-niners show in three zero and toss to Jeff Wilson junior, he goes untouched. This one down with my guy, RT on touch street Tuesdays. What a beautiful plate design. Great speed bungalows. In the second quarter, third and three for San Francisco, Jimmy Garoppolo the debo Samuel leaping grab. I mean, one of the biggest weapons if not the biggest weapon in all of the NFL, not great tackling by the rams, but you see what he does better than anybody. Get the ball in his hands, he gonna make something special like we're going to see this on a Twitter video breakdown. Yeah. Could be a jury rice was a fan in doing rams possession. The amador lenore gets a free run at Matt Stafford takes him down. That was the theme, Dan. The front by San Francisco, but also the blitz is by the rise of defensive coordinator red dominant. Forty-niners ahead now 17 and 9 in the fourth quarter, I had regrets about picking the rims. Why do we have to do touch screen Tuesday so plays an interception that get returned for touchdowns on Matthew Stafford? Because that's how it goes. Stop going on the other people we wouldn't. It's a great play. Drive it, throw it right through them. He got quiet right now. He didn't want to break that one down. Two minutes to go, ran deep in forty-niners territory, Stafford strip sacked there. And Stafford was sacked 7 times in this game, the forty-niners win this one 24 to 9. Once again, we all picked the rams. We're owning it. We stink. We let her next week. We didn't love it. The forty-niners outscored the rams tend to nothing in the fourth quarter continuing an alarming trend for LA that you see there. The rams have been outscored 44 to three in the fourth quarter this season. That's the worth fourth quarter point differential in the NFL. Three of Matthew Stafford's league high 6 interceptions have come in the fourth quarter, including that costly pick 6 last night. So Dan, what happened to the rams offense? I mean, four other 6 offensive I'm around. I mean, these aren't excuses, the realities, I did not expect all those bodies to be out. Honestly, in any offense, it's going to struggle in that situation. When you get into that world and this is what it felt like watching for Sean mcvay. What can we do? You know, you're sitting here going, okay, what can we get to now? We can't protect it. What can we do this now? Our guys can't hold up and that's kind of the big takeaway and I know there's a theory of, well, they've got to stop throwing it to Cooper Cup. I have my opinion on that, but I would hope that San Francisco's defensive line would dominate an offensive line that was down four starters and four of their top 6 guys. I don't think it's that simple, though, right? 'cause you get to make a decision if your defensive coordinator D'amico Ryan, you get to say, I feel like we can rush with four because they are a decimated up front. Or you could say, you know what? We're going to put a whole can of whip on them and we're going to blitz, right? We're going to bring extra people. So not only are you decimated not only do you not have the guys to go above the X's and O's, we're also going to make you think. And Marcus mentions this all the time when he's talking about the front. It's like a basketball team, right? All those guys have to be tied in. So now we're going to make you do things. Right. Exactly. So when you look at what he was able to do, it was take advantage of inexperience. Take advantage of reps and I thought that was a great adjustment by the mikko Ryan to say, we're going to come at you at you put pressure on Matthew Stafford and force him into mistakes. And Marcus, you agreed that the O line was an issue, but you had a bigger issue with the scheme in the passage. And of Cuba cup to me was too much. And then because throughout the duration of a game as we give them credit for the blitzing and knowing what's understanding, we know Cooper Cup is a haub high value catcher. That's not the argument. The argument is at what point do you adjust and you find another way? Because last time I take something, making a lot of money to figure out those things. That you said he couldn't figure out. Maybe stack a different wide receiver. Maybe figure out how to get a, get a alignment. That's going to get Allen Robinson open. Your free Adrian acquisition. I saw a possession right after the interception where he threw the blanton. He threw the scrawny. He hit me and he also hit Cooper Cup. Right. I didn't see that throughout the duration of the game. But here's my thought. So honestly, after watching last night and I've been feeling this way, the ramps have no shot at getting back to the Super Bowl without OBJ. No shot. They do not get OBJ. They're done. I understand your point of valent Robinson because we all had higher expectations. Alan Robinson's legs are gone. They're done. Wow. You can not get open. Marcus, his average yard of separation. When he runs his routes, is 1.99 yards. That is ranked 144th out of 145 guys. But let me make sure this question. He kicked it open? No, legit question, though. So what's the job of the coach where you pay to go three year $45 million? If you see a guy that can't create separation, what you got to do with that. Alignment. Try to, but if you're in those games and you're the coach and the quarterback, you're going to try to create separation for a guy that you think legs are done or you're going to try to create separation for the guy that's proven. When you've watched Alan Robinson play as the defensive back, he's never created a ton of separation to me, but he's a guy who's a hell of a 50 50 ball catcher. He's a dude with an extreme catch radius. And if we're going to continue to talk about Matthew Stafford as a guy that could be in the Hall of Fame, you're supposed to be able to put the ball into places that Blake bortles put it that Mitchell trubisky put it that Nick Foles put it that allowed Alan Robinson who I never thought was about separation to be a thousand yard receiver year after year after year. And this is not let me be clear. This is not for me. This is not about Matthew Stafford. This is about the guru son. Yes. You get a screen jump for a pick 6 because everybody knew what a ball was going. It's just as simple as that for me. And I get it. You want to feed your guys that can make plays. But ultimately deal, if you have any shot at getting this corrected, you gonna have to use more. They need to be gay. Yeah. Scheme it up for OBJ, or maybe who you have on the team. But either way, if we're talking about OBJ later in the show, we're going to hear from a former MVP who makes a case for adding OBJ to that roster, different team. Okay, to the latest details in Dallas, where Dax Prescott had an important doctor's appointment today, mainly checking his hand strength. Can he grip the football the way he needs to at this point with that thumb injury and the recovery? Here's jury Jones with more today. It's better. He said, going to go out there every day and make progress toward being able to grip the ball. Considering the location of the injury, I don't know that you could make any more progress. Is he able to grip the football now? No, not well enough to play. We're just starting the week. Let's see how the week goes. By the way, shout out to one O 5 three the fan for that great follow up question. Like, can he actually grip the ball? We check in on our injury report here. You just heard what Jerry Jones said about dak, Marcus, how important is it for the cowboys to get Zach

That's a big get for you guys. Look at you. It is sweet. It took a lot of wrangling. It was, well, no, it's the second most Twitter followers for any guests we've ever had. What Peter? Peter king being the first. There you go. You guys got Peter king on this show too? Look at you guys. And Warren Buffett next week. All right, first question, the category is theater and the arts, which what is happening right now? I have no idea what's happening right now. None. Which the who song is used as the theme song for the David Caruso vehicle, CSI, Miami. Can I answer? Yeah. Won't get fooled again. There you go. Very good. Dude, see you tomorrow, Miami. Come on, that show was a legendary. You didn't think I didn't watch that all the time? We knew you did. The category two marine biology on the classic dolphins logo, what color is the M on the dolphin's helmet? Orange? Yes. Yeah, yeah. Oh man, I'll read you. Yeah, I was gonna say you've already quadrupled Albert's score. I honestly don't know what's happening. It's like I walked into the cash tab. It's like all of a sudden I'm being asked trivia questions. That's the vibe. That's the vibe we've been going for. One time when I was in high school, I was at like a journalism convention in Orlando, and it was like, I was with the student newspaper, but the student CVP were there too. And we did something called cash left, where we just waited in the hotel. Elevator when people walked in, we said they were on a trivia game show. Did anyone play? And then they were almost everyone played almost everyone. And then you were just like, you know what I mean? I had some change in my pockets, like you'd get like a dollar or something. That's really good. Yeah. Question number three, the category is linguistics. As you know, a non count noun is, of course, a noun that exists as a mass or an abstract quantity that can not be counted and therefore does not become plural by simply adding the letter S to it. For instance, the Miami Heat, the Orlando Magic, the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Utah Jazz, all NBA teams, of course. True or false, the NFL currently has zero teams with names that are non count nouns. Oh my God, I'm literally running through every division in my head. Wow. I'm gonna go true. They all have, they're all some animal or some dumb thing. Well, I guess Washington's the commander. Yeah, all right, so I'm going true zero zero non count nouns. Very good. Even got the catch, which is the football team were. Yes. A year ago, but are no longer. Very good. Wow. Very good three for three. Fantastic. Category four, Gary. Okay, I get it. It was supposed to be topography, but Gary made it trough photography. And I have a hard time reading so that was a I'm locking myself through it here with baby steps. Rohan, who is the only Heisman Trophy winner to also play in the NBA? Charlie ward. Nick's ledges. Very good. And if NFL teams weren't so racist, he probably wouldn't have been a fantastic quarterback, but man, this is it. You can max out of here that's a question 5 is the Moneyball, so it's worth two. Category is, we'll call this Rohan ology. Roland, you are a Florida native. Now living in California, this is a question about those two states, which of those states teams had more individual victories this past postseason. I should say that the 2022 calendar year posters. So we're talking about NFL NBA and NHL playoffs. And I'm talking about individual victories, not you know, like if you lose a series four to three, you get three for that. But which team, excuse me, which state Florida or California had more individual postseason victories in 2022. So it's NBA NFL and NHL. Yep. All right, well the rams had what three. California did California have any other NFL teams in the playoffs, the forty-niners won a couple games. This is the entire state of California, correct. The entire state, correct, correct. Okay, because the heat had quite a few, they had 11, but I don't think we had and we had very few NHL ones. So that my Florida's top route around 13. Do you have the numbers in front of you? I do, I do. Can you, can you confirm? No, you know, you'd rather not. You'd rather not. No, you're four for four. You're at the Moneyball. Yes. This is big stuff. I'm going, so I'm trying to think of the kings made the playoffs in the west. I think so. I'm going to take a swing here. I don't know it, but I'm going to guess Florida by a hair. Wow. Oh my God, I thought you were going to go California. You got it. There we go. There we go. I will say you were nowhere close on the numbers, but yes, Florida had Florida had 30 California had 25. The lightning, the lightning. I don't acknowledge the lightning because they knocked out my Florida Panthers. There you go. Pantsers had four Buccaneers had won and then California had 25. That's the warriors of 16 rams before LA kings with three in the forty-niners with two, that was really good. There we go. So joining Richard Johnson as the only other perfect game on the show. He's on the leaderboard right now. So I beat brier, who else have I beaten? Jenny Francis? Okay, that's the one I wanted to know. That's the one I wanted to know. Steps. Immediately. Okay, I'm not going to text stuff I've seen way too much respect. Not that I don't have a lot of respect for Jenny. More willing to make fun of her. About it.

"rams" Discussed on NFL Live
"Game. Coming off a year in which led the NFL in receptions, receiving yards, receiving touchdowns and was named Super Bowl MVP, there was little doubt that Cooper Cup had earned himself a massive new deal that deal came to life on Wednesday in the form of a three year. $80 million extension was 75 million guaranteed. Here's cup. With more on his new deal. I thought it was just going to be, okay, it was kind of a cool thing. And certainly he's one of those people that's had a hand and being able to be in this place. And I have the opportunity to extend my career here in Los Angeles, your quarterback plays a huge role in that. So a little bit of a nod to Matthew Stafford in that way. One, I thought it was just going to be, okay, it was kind of a cool thing. And certainly he's one of those people that's had a hand and being able to be in this place. And I have the opportunity to extend my career here in Los Angeles, your quarterback plays a huge role in that. So a little bit of a nod to Matthew Stafford in that way. All right, so Louis, the rams have been really busy. Aaron Donald Matthew Stafford, amongst those players, already got extensions. But how important was this signing specifically for LA? Look, I think it's on par with the importance that resigning Aaron Donald had. Look, I think Cooper Cup is one of the is without a doubt on offense. He's the guy that makes it all go. Well, now obviously quarterbacks are the guys who are the focal point for just about for every franchise, but Cooper Cup makes it go. And if you ask Sean mcvay, they can't do what they do. They can't have the success that they have, philosophically, without Cooper Cup. Why? Because in the run game, he's the guy who makes it all go with his blocking on the edge. When they're in 11 personnel, it's like they can turn it into a turn him into another tight end, and he can secure the edge better than most tight ends in the NFL. And then when they're throwing the football, look, it speaks for itself in terms of the volume that this guy gets every game 14 of 17 games last year. He has double digit targets. In the three games that he didn't have double digit targets, two out of three of those games, he still won over a hundred yards. One game, 7 targets, 7 receptions over a hundred yards. So he produces in the passing game, everyone knows they're going to him and they still don't stop him. And in the run game, he's the guy who's The X Factor as far as secured in the edge on that outside zone, dominated run scheme. So I'll tell you this too. This is the last thing I'll say. There's nobody in my 30 years in the NFL other than Aaron Donald, who's on the same team as him, who is more respected. Coaches, front office, and players as much as Cooper Cup is respected out there. That's the kind of guy that gets 75 million fully guaranteed. Simple as that. Well, the first thing I want to say is this, whoever is managing the cap for the Los Angeles Rams, can you please come do my taxes? I would truly appreciate if you could work the numbers for my taxes. The way that you work the numbers for the salary cap. That is first and foremost. Secondly, I love what the rams are doing. The rams are about producing for us. They're about the right now model. If you're Jalen Ramsey and we get you from J Bill, you ball out, you get paid. If you're Aaron Donald and we drive you and you outplay even where we drafted you are, you act, you get paid. Cooper Cup. You outplay your contract, you get paid. I love what they do, whether you are homegrown or you are acquired. If you do what you need to do positionally for the rams, you get that bag. And when Cooper Cup did last year was absolutely phenomenal. Every week he went out and the doom standing across from him got cooked and he got cooked and you could count on him and now he's being rewarded for that. RC, just by the way, to answer your question about who does the ram salary cap? It's 20 past stores, play football at Dartmouth. He's really, really smart. And really, really good at his job. Can we get his input RC, please? Did you file an extension? If you got an exception, you're in business because I think you haven't told mid July to get those taxes actually done. Kimberly, I think everybody is now wondering what's next for the rams because they always have something up their sleeve. What does this Cooper Cup extension mean for OBJ? Okay, so feel the rams are focused on right now, but Odell, not yet. They understand that he is one of the most dynamic weapons still in the NFL. But he's not healthy. The Ramsey is when he gets healthy, they will have healthy competition to sign him because he's a free agent. But here's what the rams are hoping. They say, hey, Odell. It's LA. You love LA. We had some good times. We did some good things. We won a Super Bowl. Why don't we run this back? Why don't you come back, join Cooper, join Aaron Donald, everybody's living it up in LA where you love the sunshine. So that's what they're hoping when he gets healthy, that they have the inside track to recite them. Okay, we'll see. I mean, at this point, I wouldn't put anything past the rams to get anything done for all I know they could find a way to trade for Tom Brady. That actually do that. I'm just saying, if anybody could find a way, it would be the rams. Yeah. Let's pivot from the rams to the wide receiver market in general, is Cooper Cup $75 million guaranteed. It was the most of any wide receiver in the NFL, and what an off season it's been for past catcher. So last month, AJ Brown gets four years, hundred mill from eagles have to be traded from Tennessee prior to that. It was Stefon Diggs who re upped with the bill signing a four year deal that included 70 million guaranteed back all the way in March tyreek hill got four years in a whopping a $120 million extension from Miami and just prior to that, it was devonte Adams. We got 5 years, a $140 million in that was after he got traded from Green Bay to Las Vegas. I thought Adam Schiff is what would have been hat because I didn't believe it actually happened. RCA all have huge bags right now. Who has the most approved out of these past catchers? You know what? I don't think any of these dudes have anything to prove. It doesn't involve in Miami. Are we blaming it on him? Devonte Adam doesn't bald in Las Vegas. Are we blaming it on him? We will find other excuses for these men because we've seen them perform over time. Here's what they do have to prove they'll field that the money they gotten is worth it, that you can win a championship that you can be a team that consistently competes and play and pay your wide receiver this sort of money. They are fighting for the entire receiver group in the league, not just themselves. They got their bag. They earned it. Now they have to make sure everybody around them can keep getting the same thing. Yeah, Ryan, look, I think wide receiver salaries are here to stay, and they're just gonna go up simply because that's just the way the game is, right? Every offense is trying to really stress defenses make them defend every blade of grass, both horizontally and vertically. At these teams in particular, Miami, the Raiders, and Philadelphia, if those receivers that they sign do not produce, it's going to be the quarterbacks whose rear end is going to be on the line. That's who they will be looking to replace. They will say, hey, look, these guys proved that their former stops that these guys are absolute game breakers, and the game is going that way. If you can't get it to them, we'll get somebody who can get it to them. Because you ain't running down there, you know, producing no plus 20 yard plays. You're not going to run around. You can't throw it to yourself, so we'll find somebody else. Because these guys have proven they're at the top of their game. Devonta Adams, I mean, come on now. You don't need to prove nothing to nobody. But he's with his boy out there in Vegas. If I believe he'll produce. You're on the hot seat. I love you, but you're on the hot seat, bro and that's just the way it's gonna be. And I'll tell you this, Jalen hurts, you're on the hot seat too, because those two teams, Miami and Philly, I promise you. They're set up right now to go ahead and get somebody else if you're not the one. They've got the players down the perimeter. Yeah. Let's see what happens, man. Not for nothing, Louis, but both of those teams fill you in Miami, have two first round picks next year. The clock is ticking. We're not done here on.

"Their belts. Plus the much anticipated rematch between John way Lee and Joanna, yim Jay chuck. The prelims are on ESPN2 ESPN deportes and ESPN+ starting at 8 eastern 5 Pacific followed by the main card on pay per view to order in English and Spanish, go to ESPN+ dot com slash PPV. So the Patriots and Mac Jones go to their final day of work of the off season earlier today as that second year quarterback who was awesome last year looked to build off of that rookie campaign. That season actually began alongside Cam Newton who had been resigned to a one year deal leader cut. He offered his thoughts on Mac on the pivot, the great podcast that RC is one of the hosts. I was with Mac Jones. Mac Jones gonna be a great quarterback. I'll put Mac Jones at that 20 is threshold. He a young gun, right? And obviously with the guys that they're going to build around him from the defensive special teams, offensive side. He's going to, he's not the guy that I'm talking about. Mac was on fire last year. He not only helped the Patriots reach the playoffs. They want Ted games. He also ranked top ten all time amongst rookie quarterbacks in completion percentage, passing yards and touchdown passes. That Prescott remains the only rookie to post a higher completion percentage than Jones in NFL history. RC I'll start with you, of course, you are part of that conversation with cam. Do you think Mac would be good enough this year to get the Patriots back to the playoffs? You know, I think Matt can make a push, but we had to look at the entire AFC and think about some of the quarterbacks, even the young ones that you're facing and trying to get to the playoffs or trying to advance into playoffs. And also their situations. Mac Jones, you go out and you add devonta Parker. Is he enough on the outside to win one on ones where he can push the ball down the field and make explosive plays when you think about his coaching situation? Who is the season offensive mind that's going to be the play caller that's going to do everything they can schematically throughout the season to set him up to win and who is developing him in the off season. When you look at Mac Jones, he showed right away that he was ready to play in the NFL, but his ceiling has always been a question. In order to get to that ceiling or even exceed it, you need the right pieces around you and I just don't know if offensively the New England Patriots have done that. We saw him in week four and he was the same quarterback in week 17 as he was then. That's not the progression that you want. And so if he hasn't upped his game because you haven't done enough for him as in the New England Patriots, that's on you and Mac Jones will not be leading this team to the playoffs. So I'm trying not to hit the panic button with the Patriots. Do I love that Josh McDaniels is now in Vegas and now Mac Jones has Joe judge and Patricia map Patricia let me come on. No, I don't love it. But what I will focus on is the fact that Belichick hopefully knows a little bit more than me. So if he's putting this kid in this position, it's got to be, he understands that he is pro ready that he has the tools that he has the football acumen that he's composing the pocket. But what I do like about Mac Jones, seeing more confidence. It sounds silly, but I was at the Pro Bowl where he hit the Gritty, and he's showing that little swag and he's having more fun. And that to me, it's silly, right? It sounds silly, but here's the thing. He feels more comfortable in his skin in the NFL in this offense. And that's what that's the first step. You at least want to see this kid feel good in where he is in his position. Hopefully this season will be a little bit better. Yeah, I'm bullish here on Mac Jones. Really sharp last year, a lot of confidence there internally. And, you know, who else is bullish on him? His pseudo center as check this out recently is Mac Jones got a little bit of help from Bill Belichick with some shotgun snaps earlier this week during mini camp, Jones offered his assessment on Belichick's new duties as scout team center. You know, he's very hands on and I feel like we've made a lot of growth together. You know, as an offensive unit with him and then obviously personally with him and has a quarterback group. So we're all on the same page and like I said, he's seen the most amount of football of any of our coaches and he's seen defense offense and special teams. So having his input is always going to be very beneficial to me because he knows what puts stress on the defense. All right, no offensive coordinator still, Lewis, how do you read the situation in New England right now? Look, I think it's TBD for me, man. I'm not quite sure. And for the first time, I think since Bill has been there, at least in, let's just say in the past 5 to ten years, I just don't quite know what this really means for this football team going forward, especially when you're talking about the construction of the coaching staff and then how that relates specifically to Matt Jones progress here in his second season. If Josh McDaniels was there, I would be extremely bullish simply because of the fact that there's going to be continuity in terms of the voice that's in his ear. I would really have some confidence in the fact that the Bronte Parker would be utilized to his fullest that taekwon Thornton their second round pick would be utilized to his fullest. That this passing game would start to spread out and be a little bit more vertical and really, you know, challenge people's ability to cover every blade of grass, both horizontally and vertically. I just don't know what that's going to look like conceptually with Joe judge calling the plays. Matt Patricia calling the place. How it's going to affect, you know, Mac Jones confidence from down to down from situation in this situation. And until I see that and get a better feel for it, look, I really have more questions than I have answers to present here as far as what New England's going to look like. So I think we need to really evaluate Mac in that context as the year is going on. Yeah, we have not a whole lot to talk about over the next 6 weeks before training camp. But we'll find a way to keep trying to dig on who the Patriots play Carl will be this off season. She's been this season I should say because a lot of us are very curious. Let's move forward from Mac Jones to some other second year quarterbacks as we dive into quick reads and we start with you, Lewis, and Trevor Lawrence in Jackson. Yeah, look, I expect this young man to flip everything around in a positive way, namely that touchdown interception ratio from his rookie season where he threw 12 touchdowns and 17 picks. I expect that to be flipped under the tutelage of Doug Peterson. I expect his completion percentage to be over 60% and not just barely below 60% like it was. I expected yp to get up over 6 and a half, 7 yards per tip because one, he's got great coaching this year too. He's got better players and three. It's just a better overall culture in Jacksonville. Zach Wilson, he needs to be decisive. He can not turn the ball over. He has to show command of the offense. He's done all the off season work. Putting on weight, cutting out the sweets, unlike me, but this is a kid who has got a team that's bolstered on defense and offense. He just needs to be the leader. Hey listen, if you look at Justin Phil's and what he has coming up for him in Chicago, it's going to be on Matt ebert and Lou gety to get him focused to get him to be able to process in the pocket to know right away where to go with the football and if he doesn't use some of those great skills where he can run, get his legs moving and get outside to the pocket and create first downs. We know that Justin Fields is an elite.

"I'm so thankful for our organization and the people that coaching staff up to the front office and then I got to touch on this is an organization that I want to be a part of for a long time. But to have those people, people have a lot of respect for be able to show me that they want me to be here and that this was a priority for them. I'm incredibly grateful for that. And I don't take that lightly. It's good to be Cooper Cup these days in a lot of ways. We have more on his massive deal that was signed just yesterday for a guy who basically sent like a million records last year and had one of the best seasons we've ever seen. Hello, welcome to NFL live right here. Kimberly a Martin great to have you in the house. We also have Ryan Clark and Lewis Rick. You see them up there on that big screen, and I am field Yates and training camp, not quite here yet, Kimberly, but we're getting closer. Let's take a look around the league of some of the top stories around OTAs and mini camps and let's start in Los Angeles on that new Cooper Cup deal. Feel it's good to be Cooper Cup like you said. He agreed to a three year extension with that included $75 million and I checked in with the rams this morning and pretty much this came together similar to the Aaron Donald deal kinder came together very quickly both sides wanted to get this done. He's a guy that they love team first. Why wouldn't you want to reward him a little bit which they did? Now, Aaron Rodgers brace yourselves, guys. This is the last time we're gonna see him here from Aaron Rodgers for a while and he has become part of our daily conversations here on NFL live, but you know, this is a team that has a lot of questions, especially this offense in this wide receiver group, they need some time to gel and it's gonna be so exciting to see how similar this offense looks to last year, come training camp and Brady. Another QB who's got, you know, he's focused on winning another Super Bowl, but he's like us. He's wondering when Gronk will come back. Katie said today, listen, I'm not putting any pressure on him. He's got a figure things out. Obviously Brady took his little retirement stint, 40 days. So he wants to see Gronk back, but he won't put any pressure on his tight end. I think we decided it's called retirement. Retire lent 40 days like lens retired. You mentioned the box, by the way. RC, I got a laugh out of you, all right, I'm feeling good about myself. Hey, the bucks are powering. Yeah, you listen to the jokes are normally coming from that side of the room. We'll get to there in just a minute. The bucks are powering through that mandatory mini camp, the kimberley was just referencing. It was a weird off season. All kinds of changes, including Tom Bernie's retirement, and then un retirement, but two of the main contributors that are part of that change, Brady returning, and then the new head coach Todd Bowles, they both addressed the media earlier on today. I've always loved Todd as a coach, even when he was coaching against me. I always had a lot of respect for him because every game we played against them, you know, we had to go earn it. He's very detailed, really tough, hard nosed coach. I mean, a little bit of a throwback. There's been a lot of competition. You know, throughout OTAs and through training camp, and I think Todd's done a great job with that over the years. Well, I think if you ask him, the best thing he can do is have a better season the last year is when the Super Bowl. I don't think the stats matter as much to him as winning as he'll tell you he needs to work at everything constantly because this game catches up to you if you don't constantly work at things. Well, the bucks better be ready because how's this for the start of their season? Their first four games, a good cowboys. Saints, packers, and chiefs. You see those right there, two of those games on the road to begin the season. They actually have the hardest strength of schedule of any team from weeks one through four based on their opponents winning percentage last year. I get it. Some people don't like to look backwards, but all four of those teams look legit on paper. So Louis, it's the bucks, it's Tom Brady. You don't generally get nervous surrounding them, but as you look at that tough stretch, how important is a hot start for them? Well, I think it's successful start. Let's just put it that way. It's something that's really important to them. Just as it's important to any football team, simply because you only play 17 of them now. Use the play 16. You play 17 of them now, so you don't have any games to give away, especially when there's only one buy at the end of the year, and I'm sure every team, including Tampa Bay would like to have that one singular buy. Now, also I think look, there's a psychological component to it for the Buccaneers this year in particular. Okay, for as great as Tom has been and Tom is playing at his at the height of his powers. At the height of his ability last year in 2021, when they lost to the LA rams, there's no assurance that every year at this point in his career, he's just gonna pick up where he left off. So if he comes out at the beginning of the year and he's faltering, let's just say his footwork that's even slower. His accuracy starts to suffer. That would be something that could have a trickle down effect on this football team because of the fact that one, even though Bruce Arians is not the head coach and they have a lot of continuity, there are naturally be some questions as to the state of the transition from Bruce to Todd. And who knows if people would then start looking around going, hey, wait a minute. There's something missing here is something off here. So I think from a confidence standpoint, from a psychological standpoint, it's important to come out of the gates against those four teams, which all of them are going to be right there at the very end, and at least be 500. At least you don't want to come out of that own four, one in four, because I think that would just lead to questions, although, look, there would be time to catch up. I don't think that's how you want to start the season. Yeah, you know, I think there's a difference between getting off to a great start in a very good start and not doing that and having a trash start. You know, when Lewis says that they come out of that thing 500, I think that is important, but it's also important is how this team is playing. What chemistry, this team, the 2022 edition of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. What are they building towards? We all know that Tom Brady doesn't have to be the best week one week two week three, but we've seen him be the best and week 21 for 7 years. And I think that's all Tom Brady will be focused on. And I'm different than Lou. And maybe it's because I've been burned by Tom Brady too much. Tom Brady is going to have to unequivocally show me that he can't play before I believe it. I'm not betting against him. And so if Tom Brady does have a smart, a tough start. You know what I'm gonna say week one? Hell, he'll be better week two. And maybe week two ain't good. He gonna be better week three, and I might be saying this from 18 weeks, including the buy. But it's gonna take Tom Brady to retire for me to count him out of the championship race, and I think the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have that confidence in him as well. It's gonna be about gelling, becoming Todd boses team and once they do that, I think there will be a scary team to play down the stretch. RC, I agree with everything except for one point. After this off season, it would take more than Tom Brady retired for me to count them up because I don't know if it was actually retired if he said he is retired. I think it's good to be in the business of fearing the Buccaneers. Right. But we talk to people around the league. Do you feel as though other teams still do fear the bucks as currently constituted? Nobody's crowning the bucks, right? And I think that's a good thing. They shouldn't be. Because last time I checked, the rams won the Super Bowl. So they should be the team that everybody's looking at. But why did we get all excited when Tom Brady came back? Because he's Tom Brady. And that completely changes the dynamics of this football team and what this offense can be. But with Brady's retirement hesitation, with Todd Bowles a guy covered in New York with the jets. This is his second stint as a full-time head coach. They're gonna be a lot of questions, a lot of people looking at him as Ryan mentioned if he's has he learned anything from the old job. Did he get any better as a head coach and then Byron leftwich? A lot of questions about who's running this offense? Is it Tom is a Byron? And so there's a lot of questions with this team, but opportunities for them to show people, hey, we actually are a favorites when the Super Bowl. I know the saints are going to be a factor in this NFC south. But one thing that they love going for them the Buccaneers is the NFC is not the AFC. The AFC is loaded. It's like the SEC west, the NFC is not quite the SEC west..

"So in an homage to our former colleague Andy Benoit, who works for the rams now and is a couple 60 minutes away from his Super Bowl ring, which is pretty cool to say. Congratulations, Andy. First of all, I remember sitting next to Andy at the rams patriots Super Bowl and I had NFL game pass at the European version of NFL game pass. And so Andy was sitting next to me and he was blown away that I could watch the game in real time, pause it and then put the plays in slow motion. And so it was awesome because Andy knows a lot about football, obviously. And he would walk me through everything, but he needed to see it for himself, too. He needed to see the slo-mo. And so, and he was like, this is the greatest thing. This is the greatest thing ever. I don't know why I remember that, but that was a fun that was a fun memory. From that night now he's going to win a Super Bowl. But Andy and I used to argue a lot. I don't actually believe this, but I used to just tell him that football was rigged. And the commissioner was just creating everything like World Wrestling Federation. And he got really angry at me all the time for saying that. So in an homage to Andy, here's the conspiracy theory stuff, right? The Bengals winning the Super Bowl are going to the Super Bowl is obviously highlighting the NFL's connection to their sports books and their gambling because what they want is they want more of us to believe that this can happen to increase the amount of bets that long shots will get at the beginning of the season. So Bengals will win the Super Bowl. They're going to win it. 20 6 field goal. 26, 24. That's that's sort of going to be. 26, 24. Two miss pizz..

"The game plan a lot, but especially a guy who could do zone read consistently, but also like throw the ball and be active in the pocket too. I think once Lance is caught up the forty-niners are going to really start torching people. But I think we saw that. Like, you know, this is still a good team. It's a really well coach team. You know, I think they were taken to their limits this year, like the forty-niners overachiever, I think, in a lot of in a lot of respects. And so I don't know what you really get upset about. I mean, are you really going to be all frustrated about a jacuzzi tart dropped interception? You know, I mean, that's kind of a break of the game, you know? The one Shanahan decision that is coming under some level of criticism, I guess, was the punt on fourth and two in the fourth quarter, that sort of preceded the tart dropped interception. And I think this does come back to Jimmy Garoppolo. And when I say this, if you isolate the clip, it sounds like criticism of Jimmy Garoppolo, it's not Jimmy Garoppolo is not a quarterback who you can trust in the same way that Brandon staley would trust and Herbert or Zack Taylor would trust a Joe burrow or Andy Reid would trust a patrio Holmes et cetera, et cetera, that is your quarterback. It's a highly schemed offense. The way you are going to convert that first down is by some sort of schematic advantage. And I thought Shanahan threw his best punch on third down. They ran that tendency breaker that Trent Williams motion to the right side of the formation where he just basically destroys the entire right side of the world. And you run him behind it and you get 8 yards or whatever. And they knew everyone knew about that. They figured the rams would overreact to the Williams motion. They didn't. They stayed home. They made the play. And we kind of lose track when we sort of say, okay, well, what is the numbers say? What are the analytics say in this situation? If you don't have the play and you don't have the quarterback who you can just sort of say, okay, well, I'll put the ball in his hands and he'll do it. He'll make the play. You really, it's maybe not a great chance to go for it at that point. I didn't mind the punt at all. No, I didn't either. And you know what I love, though. Trent Williams, if you watch that play in slow motion. So it's not just, it's not just a typical like motion or like jet motion, right? If you watch all the if you watch all the forty-niners players, all their tight ends, especially when it's a running play like that, they arc their motion in order to get a little extra velocity going at the line of scrimmage and it's so cool. They just kill people with that. It's super awesome. And I just love it. And I think that'll be like watch next year every single team in the NFL is going to be teaching that this off season. They're all going to run that. That's sort of arced motion to get them more leveraged at the line of scrim. But yeah, and not that I saw this, but I can anticipate the complaint that why wouldn't you have just stuck Trey Lance out there and run zone read because you could have picked up the first down..

"Is absolutely crucial for them. Rams receiver Robert Woods suffered a torn ACL during Friday's practice and is done for the season. What's the team's second option behind only Cooper Cup? 556 receiving yards four touchdowns this season. So it just was a compounding of issues and it felt for a minute there like their heads were reeling like Sean mcvay's head was reeling. They did not know which end was up and serious change was needed. We've got to do a better job with our 11, putting them in good positions and then our players ultimately have to be able to go out and execute. It's just a cleaner overall operation. Otherwise, it'll be a challenge for us if we can't overcome some of the mistakes and some of the self inflicted wounds. Well, we'll come back to this rams offense in a few minutes, but first, we go to big splash number two for the rams, which was in early November, actually right before their three game losing streak when they dealt for von Miller. What were the expectations for him joining this star studded defense? Yeah, I think schematically one of the biggest things that they want to do is blitz less. And so I think what they really wanted with von Miller was they want a guy up front who attracts attention. Can we rush for consistently enough to where we can continue to keep that roof over the back of our defense? And so I think that with Vaughn, you're already sort of seeing this happen last week against Jacksonville, Vaughn acquired three blockers in order to help free Greg gaines up and they have expectations. They'd like to keep him around long term, especially the presence he brings and just a really positive guy. My first day I got to meet all the players man on me so I like my first day and a new school. You know, you get to meet the cool cheese you can meet Aaron Donald and you don't let it floor you Taylor and I'm in the locker room when you guys do Stafford. Now I'm on the same team. It really steal that if you feel real, but on my first day a really, really vocal leader and someone who was beloved in Denver for those qualities and is quickly becoming beloved in Los Angeles for that as well. Well, on paper, this is arguably the most talented defense in the league. But they have looked a little bit vulnerable at times, especially against some of the NFC's best teams. For example, they gave up 37 points in the week four lost to the Cardinals and 36 in a recent loss to the packers. In your eyes, is this group underachieving? Are they inconsistent? Is it none of the above? How would you rate this defense's performance? Yeah, I definitely think they're inconsistent. This is something that we kind of predicted a little bit. We understood that there was going to be some regression this year after they had the number one defense last year and sort of exploded onto the scene. You knew that teams were going to have counters for this. Green Bay understanding the rams team build and the roster that they had put together as well as San Francisco were sort of attacking the more inconsistent spots of the field picking spots away from jaylen Ramsey, scheming their blocking and different techniques away from guys like Aaron Donald and sort of keying in on inside linebackers, which is especially in recent history not been a place of high investment for the rams. And that's been a huge problem for this defense. They have put on paper where they have shown weaknesses. And I think, especially having things start to click up front with von Miller getting more and more snaps. And then changing their inside linebacker personnel as well to feature Ernest Jones in a lead share of snaps. That's something where now they need to rise to the occasion, because even if you are okay with some regression on defense and you believe your offense will sort of rise to counter or sort of cover up that regression, you can't be inconsistent as they have been down the stretch. No, let's go back to the offense. And to the third of three big moves we wanted to break down. This one happened about a week after they got von Miller. I'm sure early November wasn't hectic for you at all. Kid in the shopping cart makes it. Well, that movie now, as you know, was signing Odell Beckham junior after he was weighed by the browns. Now, as we know, Odell's a pretty polarizing guy. Why do you think the rams decided to add him to the mix? Yeah, it's interesting. I don't think that they think he's polarizing at all. This was a player driven effort. And you know, you've always heard good things from the majority of his teammates. And when Odell, obviously he was released and then he kind of was able to pick, essentially, where he was going to go. And so then a recruiting process sort of started. And the rams were quietly in the mix, understanding that he does have ties in a lot of different ways to Los Angeles. Some of his great friends, professional, athletes, and also personal friends, are in Los Angeles as well. Von Miller is a good personal friend of him, which just so happened to work out for him. And it was an interesting study in player empowerment in my opinion in a GM and a head coach that really do trust their players with this type of culture and with this type of understanding of what is needed versus what they can't have or should not bring in. And so they basically turn the keys over to the players. And does he want to come here, find out? And you guys figure out what the situation is. And so the whole process to me, as I sort of dug into it in talking with a lot of people behind the scenes, was Odell being so available and open and wanting to get the other rams receivers blessing for him to join the roster. You know, you want to be where you feel loved and wanted and welcomed. And I just got that feeling, you know, from Vaughn and Jalen Allen boys, the receivers when I got the call and it just felt it felt right in my heart. Jalen Ramsey bringing his cell phone into one of the team offices, one of the team buildings where all of the receivers were because Odell wanted to get the receiver's blessing for him to join the team before it was official. To me, that was a really, really telling move because obviously there are a lot of mouths to feed. This was obviously also prior to Robert Woods suffering the season ending injury. So at the time, a lot of mouths to feed. And then now moving into the expectation of filling some very, very big shoes, not just from a personal and on field perspective, but also from a cultural perspective and a guy in a leadership role. He's started already to take young guys under his wing, van Jefferson had a couple of drops against San Francisco, a loss, and the rams were in the thick of it. They were losing and they were unhappy. And things felt like crap. And van Jefferson felt he told me he felt lower than he has in a long time. And Odell sort of took him under his wing and comforted him and talked him up and said, told him about all the times he'd been there before and all of the things he'd heard negative people say about him and his game and how he responded and van Jefferson said that really, really meant a lot to him. He came out and had a great game a couple weeks later. Looking at this on the field, what are the early returns on Odell Beckham junior? How has he looked on the field? You can tell he's starting to get more and more comfortable. There were a few miscommunication timing things early on that I think were to be expected. And this last week, you saw him go up on what Sean mcvay called a very patient fade for his touchdown.

"One has six catches on eight point three targets per game. Sixty eight point nine yards per game and point four touchdown catches per game. Might receive for two has four point four catches per game seven point two targets per game. Sixty eight point. Eight yards per game and point five touchdown catches per game. The third wide receivers robert woods who has five point eight catches on eight point six targets and sixty six point. Eight yards point three touchdown catches per game. The point being he compares favorably in terms of yards and catches. I suppose those those tight ends as well to the to wide receivers. We do not know so if we can potentially throw the blind resume graph up in just a minute. we're going to get. we are getting. Their math is gonna be. Yep he's downloading wiretap right now so i can book beyond his wildest matthew berry right matthew berry. You're downloading the hawaii up. Are you booking your while. this means. Wait dreams no wait. Means you've got a lotta means your. Ym's i am. I'm trying to book a flight to the land of tall people with that. Like it looks. Like i i cannot wait. I wish i cannot tell you what. I'm what i just got a text from. Somebody and i cannot wait to tell you guys as soon as we get off the Because if i on the air it's going to get sure got me in trouble. We are getting there real quick though with the blind wrestling. You take a look at this. And i gave you some other numbers that are similar to this. How about this robert woods. Target share is way up compared to wide receiver one and wide receiver to who are both dallas cowboys wide receivers. We will reveal them. I'm going to go with a marker and mike cd lamb and okay never mind. They're not cowboys wide receivers. I don't know they are so. I have no idea those people are i'm gonna guess rhonda more i'm he didn't play in the nfl. Last i think one of them one of them has to be marvin jones. I think they're i think if i was thinking the other way the kyle puts these together i think he would compare a new matthew stafford wide receiver to an old matthew stafford wide receiver. So obviously you have to start getting into the mind of and that's jones is one of them as the other one. Now you're thinking about like cheese and bowling and let's throw it up golladay. i'm going to guess what. Oh wow okay metcalf nice job. That's that's right since two thousand nineteen of course when decay entered the league all right so it leads right into the rams and we'll actually start. I skipped over matthew stafford before the blind resume. My bad on that. Let's go back to matthew stafford and we'll talk about the new. Rams quarterback who last year was quarterback twenty one in a points per game basis. He finished with over four thousand passing yards. He also got hurt last year. But it's no concern going into this season quarterback twelve on your board and my board quarterback thirteen on daniels board matthew. The question with matthew stafford is that as we talk more. And more about the impact of rushing quarterbacks and fantasy. This is not a bad athlete by any stretch. He's also not. An elite runner should be target for people as a starter. Coming out of their drafts. No i look. I think there is if you wind up in a draft twelve team deeper and matthew. Savage is starting quarterback. I think you're gonna be fine. I think he has a. I think he has a very good fantasy here. I think the problem is. Is that having a good quarterback. This is the new mediocre because like again. He doesn't give you anything with your legs. It's the same issue. We talked about with james. Winston at the top of the show like in stafford is a much better situation than winston. He's not going to have you know he's he's not gonna split time with a taste hill. I think it's it's got better weapons around him. He's got a great offense of mine. In sean. Mcvay with no disrespect sean. Payton also a great coach but so stafford stafford to somebody who i think has a very nice fantasy of the problem is he just doesn't give you anything with his legs but look when he throws he's productive right since the start of twenty nineteen he is ninth top ten. Nfl he has nine and fantasy points per pass attempt. He is eleventh and touchdown rate when he throws he is productive. And i think that this is as good this is. This is the best situation he's ever been there been times when he's had as much talent as he is. He's gonna have in la. I don't know that he's ever had as much talent. And the offensive scheme that he's gonna have in. Sean mcvay jared goff definitely times where jared goff was fantasy viable. That's jared goff with all due respect to him hints. Matthew stafford not at this point in their careers. So look i've matthew stafford's qb Twelve that's his. adp qb twelve. So he's like a borderline. Qb one in a twelve team deeper league. I loved sorry field. You really quickly. I love this last death. That's on the field. Red zone drives per game in two thousand nine hundred and twenty twenty. You look at what the rams did they were fifth. Right in the the lions were twenty six. matthew stafford simply didn't have the ability to be able to get down there with that lions team last year. I think that's going to change a lot so like you're saying i'm with you guys. I just think it's really interesting when you look at how he's just going to have more options and better chances to score more.

"I christopher thank you. We are here at uc irvine at rams camp. Now there are three places we can begin. Okay let me here. We can begin. Scott kaplan you. And i talked about why. L. z is late to the show today. Is he really common. Camacho he is. I spoke to a real. He's running behind. He's an adventure. But this like various brand so it has this. What if we could start with the hammy production. That christians made there or we could start with mason going to a dodger game with zero chance. He stays till the end of the game. Okay well i'm gonna start with l. z. Being late being late okay. Let's start with the show. I mean this is fairly easy. Anyone who's been around now z. And i've been around for almost six years now knows that anytime we have a remote anywhere. There is almost little to any chance he is going to arrive on time. There is almost a zero percent. Chance is one hundred percent certainty. Almost i would say like ninety nine percent that he is going to be laid. And this just fits in the brand especially considering. It's his swansong this week. I mean you might as well go out the way you always go. Morales told me as we walked in together today said this is exactly what l z does he goes. We had forty different remotes during the morning. Show he made about two of them. I'm like that's the greatest thing i've ever heard in my life like that's what i should be doing like. I should've absolutely today. I was this close man this close to get into a car accident today. I was like oh no. What if your car accident. I would have made it. I had to call in. Like i could've so easily found a way to not come to see but i love to camp my issue right. See out kick the kicker right now. No there's no chance no chance at all but you see the smell george of grass. Yes it just gets me. You know puts me back twenty five thirty years ago in my life right. Where can you kick right now. Like right now cold. No warm up. How far could you kick a field goal as a guy who was a college kicker and kicked kicked in in training camps and preseason games say right now if i had proper footware yes you had cleats on cleats. Yeah had a nice soft ball one. That's been kicked around throwing around one. That's really dark brown and kind of a little round. I say i'm good from forty right now. Wow that's impressive. the i'd like to see it. Honestly i'd like to see too by the way. Perhaps perhaps that's something we can finagle before we get out of here today. Maybe by the time practice over we can just set something like that up. Let me ask you a question. Much mcvay about what's more likely me getting hurt and pulling a hamstring trying to kick a forty yard field goal or you pulling a hamstring. When you i get into a boxing ring and you have to break out that katete blackbelt definitely you on the field goal. You think so. Because i'm telling you cold like if i'm going into a boxing match with you or kick boxing match with you. I'm going in with a lather. You know what i'm saying so that you've already warmed. Yes there's no there's very little now not saying there's no chance but there's a far lesser chance that that is the case so now let's slide over to chris hammy production For this which by the way is what it should be because when you get to football it should be. Football sounds there should be crashing helmets pads cracking and there should be coaches saying things cliche questions. Coaching beings like. Hey we're down here stretching man come out up the music down here structured. Let's go or or you heard stucco route. We're running a stucco route little things like that. That only the the diehards. No we're talking about but mcvay sound so great when he says it that. Gets you fired up to run a stucco. Little baby gruden x five. Four three two. I don't know what this play me. Let's go don't call him that when he gets here doesn't like that. Yeah probably not is my guess. I don't know why me sound just like them. Yeah i mean you've got the same act yet. Yeah yeah ish kinda equal. Except he he he he was. He's been pretty successful. Yes yes whereas gruden has come back and say what man. yeah it's been pretty bad gone so great airbag. There's been going so great. Someone else will be the scapegoat when they go. Eight eight again but Eight nine this year. Oh that's right. Eight nine point sixteen seventeen in. Oh yeah so anyhow. So there there is. The hammy production is necessary. I'd like the hammy production throughout the show If chris's available i'd like the hammy is happiness all all day here somewhere. Oh he is here. The laura make sure we add the hammy pads crack in helmets pop in production the entire time laura. Can you do that for me back there. I will definitely try to do it. Okay thank you do the best i can. Effort is all. I care practice down here so now as we're here at rams camp let's address the mason issue. Oh it's an issue all right greg. Bourbon you worked with steve mason for at least five years. If i recall correctly is that about yeah four five years so you work but steve mason for a number of years. Steve mason has been. Why did you just grab him on the shoulder. Massages is i mean alan toy this kid right here giordano this kid greg bergman you say you worked with steve mason for five years and i just feel like this energy. Leave his body. I just wanted to give them a little bit of love. I just wanted to like give them a little little tents right.

He's getting a vacation next week. It's true and all this kid needs george sodano. All he needs is to make it to friday at seven. Pm otherwise listen. You're absolutely right. Don't mess with me. I started talking to wherever the whole conversation by the way he's nervous can be shaken like liner. Let me explain why because you come pulling in here with a minute to go before we get on the air. And i'm saying the kid i'm gonna listen george gonna come walking in here with a whole of bravado like let's go turn on the mice. Let's do it baby. And i'm going to be like yeah let's roll. It's super simple. You know. And he's like no i don't i don't know so i i started saying. Hey listen let's talk about a few things you know like you're going on vacation things when you come back. I started throwing things out. I'm he's freaking out at music. Do i can't right now. Come on just gotta get the friday man. Come on you know.

"From wherever you are. I we're here rams camps. Donald l z and cap and we are joined now here by long beach polly's zone wide receiver. Sean jackson is how are you sir. Doing good very good. How are you is the question. I mean off in a good man back home. It can't get no better than this. So what's that been like. I mean honestly man has been good Been able to ten. Backup with sean mcvay You know like. I talked about in the past. It's been a great thing to have You know the past three years. Not the past three years but i spent three years in washington so just to kind of see his success and His past the last few years has definitely been great and Just kind of back a hookup and go back home and play with him and he'll be man. So i'm excited about it howard's sean. Mcvay the assistant. Different than sean mcvay. The head coach man. I mean he's he's elevated to a whole different level man when i was with been washed. J. groome as the head coach and you know he played a huge aerobic office coordinator but now you know having his own show and being able to rent it the way he wants to run it. You could tell you know how much he's You know just elevated his game and his mental as far as offense and just playing days in to kind of keep the defense off guard. So i'm excited. You know they had a lot of success pass for years so i'm just happy to be addition beer. Do when you were on with us when you first signed. The one thing we all talked about was the last couple of years in your career and the number of games that you hadn't been able to play or how's your body like. What did you do this off. Season to make sure you get through the full year and actually i mean really what you do. I mean i think honesty You know to pass for years man. I suffered a couple of injuries. That just you know happen. Through football and You know. I wanna freak injury. You know fracturing my ankle but a you know what i will say is previous places where i've been. I've had definitely had a bigger workload. You know being a veteran player and you know being twelve years or whatever. The case may be to pass years in my career but coming here being on my fourteen year. They're doing a great job of care of me. Keep me fresh. I'm just talking. You guys here like men the widow taking care of me. And can't you know. I definitely could get another three or four three to five years. I think well if you're ever three or five more years i would imagine You know as you mentioned is good to be back home so being back home you said shawn's different and i know you're back here in the off season or whatnot but what's different about you being home as far as like your circle your circle of friends your family. How is that with them off. The soon as i came back i mean i had to set them straight from the get go like you know. I'm here for business. You know i've been here. My whole life You know family friends and just activities of things you know you do when you're at your hometown so you know for me in a pass. I'll i'll always been able to leave and go play wherever else always plan so now being here full time you know i had to set people straight like you know. I'm here for business. I'm here to work. You know You know to win games. Man get super bowl you know in. This team is definitely special. Offer like we definitely have a great shot but You know just trying to make my mark and hopefully get into the hall of fame winning. I gotta get a super bowl massa. That's my job.

"Are incredibly high for matthew stafford so here. He is on a first impression of matthew stafford. Let's be great. Yeah i mean being around staff and just kinda chance to be about your family and realize what a family guy and he just would do us It's been cool to see. I always a lotta respect for him across the league just from watching him play and then we have some mutual friends before we ever really got a chance to spend a lot of time together. One of his college teammates is very very close friend of mine and play with me in cincinnati for a long time. So i've known a lot about him but just get to see him in person to be around him and his family is really special and You know just You can tell. He's one of the guys that does it the right way and is a great representation in this league and here is on how stafford will affect him and the rest of the team. You know i look at it like you just like when john sullivan was here. Roger sophos and other veterans in the league. There's always this Hard to explain. Just an understanding and appreciation. You have for other veterans in the league. In the time they've put in and So i think with matthew is really quick pick out he both seeing a lot of things you can counter discuss things that maybe you know. Other young players understand the game but they haven't experienced so they haven't been through so i think for him and i it's pretty easy to to pick up on different things in different situations that we've gone through and experienced so over under numbers for matthew staffer. Now tell you last year. The lions were five eleven. He threw for four thousand. Eighty four yards and twenty six touchdowns. Okay so here. Is the here the over under numbers for matthew stafford for this year. He is in vegas. You can make this bet in vegas. You can make this bet right now. Matthew stafford total passing yards this year. Forty five hundred and fifty yards now to put that into perspective. Last year he threw for four thousand eighty four and back in two thousand eleven ten years ago. He threw for five thousand. Johnny like over or under forty five hundred and fifty yards passing for matthew stafford over because camakers got hurt. They're not going to have the thought that they were going to have. I think sean mcveigh combined with matthew. Stafford is gonna throw a lot. The only question really with him. Kenny stay healthy but if he stays healthy anthony. North of forty five hundred. What do you think. I think he goes. North of forty five hundred. I think you put matthew stafford together with a coach who's gone to the super bowl. As a coach that is an offensive genius. A wonder pinned centered. Wonder kid. he's actually. I think they are going to throw the ball a lot. I agree with you. Know camakers daryl henderson. We'll see if they bring anybody in like they are going to have to henderson. What's that. I think they might throw it. To daryl hinders. Yeah they might think they're gonna pass alive okay. Matthew stafford total. Td passes this coming season. Twenty six point five. And i'll put it in perspective last year through for twenty six almost right at that number ten years ago. He threw for forty one touchdowns over under twenty six. And a half touchdown passes for matt stafford especially with seventeen games. I think that's an easy over. Actually i hadn't thought of that but you're right. We're going to have to get rid of the get ready for that right. Because ten and six becomes ten and seven eleven six and i mean the the seventeen game thing is going to be really fascinating. But you're right zooming that the game at the end of the year is gonna mean something if not has already shown. Oh we'll have won the division. By then john will as seattle and san francisco. Good now we'll have won the division. I'm talking. I think the rams i i think the rams are super bowl bound. I think we are going to the super bowl this year. And i think matthew stafford is going to have the year of his career. The one that people were the one that races all of the losing in detroit. I think matthew stafford finds a way to get this team to the super bowl. I'm absolutely confident. In shaw mcvay. By the way. I i have more confidence in the in the over twenty six than i do over the forty five hundred. Twenty six is easy through for twenty six last year. And now there's an extra game and give me miss four games. How many games they playing last year. I thought he played all of them. All right. i'll look at our two years ago. I think he played eight. But i'm working off the top of my head there. As i often try to do but i'm pretty sure last year was a full season for him to have it all sixteen games there. You go. and he's got a better team now. I think twenty six is easy and listen to his game tools by the way starting in two thousand eleven sixteen sixteen sixteen sixteen sixteen sixteen sixteen sixteen eight sixteen well. The eight was a back injury though. So you worry about that a little right. That was the twenty nine teen season where it's only started. Well part of the as you know you talk about. The part of the question is the offensive line. Can they protect him from getting killed. So hopefully the offensive line is solidified. And then you know that way. You can protect them. Yeah so Here's something interesting. I think so a couple of years ago. The clippers hired the excellent sports illustrated writer. Who listened to us for years and years. Yeah legras lead. Jenkins grew up in san diego listening to mason in ireland as we were his great inspiration. I'm told i think that's probably a reach. But he would probably roll with it. You probably remember him as the guy who wrote the big lebron james story for sl when he announced he was going to miami. Fantastic guy. now. I got no idea. What the hell does that the clippers does anybody know he's a he's a writer. What the hell does he do with the clippers. I'm not sure but that that that is a good ramp up to this ram story. Yes because the rams have hired their own version of lee jenkins. This guy is named david. Ben wa i think his name is andy andy. Benoy benoy andy benoy. Okay was going with the french pronunciation. So they've and he is going to be in this role. But i've got no idea what this is. It's a good question will have to ask. Mcveigh my first reaction. When i read this story that the rams had hired someone from the media to work in their front office and by the way he's worked for sports illustrated the new york times and cbs sports. He's hired an assistant to rams head. Coach sean mcveigh special projects. Right the minute. I saw this story. The very first thing that popped into my head is man is mason going to be so pissed off. Yeah that whatever can't slip 'em off gave this job to sounds like sean mcveigh did it. And then probably had to clear it through kevin and less need but what exactly is a writer for sports illustrated new york time. Cbs sports gonna do football wise. I mean is he shaping. The message as a writing stories would. Is he writing stories for the program. What is he doing. It's a great question. And i think they'd let him come on the radio. Probably not we could probably ask mcvay about him. I wonder vandy would come on. Especially since you just call him by the wrong name. And i know if it's benoi or or benoy in his and you called him. David is all over his name. It's a it's a great question. I just figured that if anybody from the media was going to work for the rams you would think it should be you. Oh god damn off would be the first thing you would do if you're in that role that role as but if you had if you had the ear of sean mcvay unless meat. What's the first thing you would tell them..

Oh i wanted to one more story so this on the list. Okay so i want. I've developed a little rapport repartee with the the barista at starbucks. And she. Her name is wendy. And i see her every morning. Because i go by a reduced fat turkey. Bacon cheddar sandwich with a tooth with a tooth sometimes occasionally. The tooth is option. So i ordered from her today. A vinci caramel crunch frumpy property for happy and it includes and i. I wrote it all out and made her. Do it a banana. Extra caramel drizzle extra whip seven pumps of caramel sauce extra caramel crunch. One pump of honey blend and frappuccino chips into a venti caramel crunch frapp. Now this is an actual drink. That has been out there and has gone viral. Funny if i do this too windy and make her jump through hoops. So i did this morning and you know what it is a frigging delicious drink. But let's face it. Coffee is desert the way they make it at starbucks now with all the the syrups and all that stuff. It's basically eating dessert. I used to. I used to work with jim. Lampley on On fox and we used to do the sunday show. I would always show up with one of those gigantic carmel. Whatever then starbucks drinks and he would he would say you know mace. You're you're just drinking a milkshake and for all for all intensive purposes it is. It's basically a milkshake. But the i strongly recommend the vintage caramel crunch freaky. It is fantastic so Let's get to the rams ranch open training camp today and by the way a little bit later on cap and eight are going to be on after his live from training camp and they will do the show from there. so you'll you'll hear from.

"rams" Discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin
"You know what i'm saying like that's a real discussion in this matter. Do you go to the bay stanford like what are we talking about here. You know. I i just i don't know man i'm not gonna lie. I'm kinda not happy about this whole texas. Oh you situation. I love the idea of this. I'm not even a hardcore traditionalist. It's just a step too far. It's it's exceedingly greedy. As i've said many times on this air. And i think the college football has a lot more to lose than it realizes when it comes to regional followings and sort of why people who are otherwise not necessarily fans of individual schools tune in and if it gets too unwieldy and it gets to corporately and it's already way way corporate like there's there's a tipping point. I think we're getting closer to them. The people realized bergman. You're a huge. Ucla fan. We all got it. What do you think man you think that the pac twelve has teams picked off. You think that they go picking teams off or do you think like what clinton saying that. This may turn into a whole different sort of a deal. I think it's really could go any way. But i think that if off the top of my head. I think that it's going to be where the pac twelve is going to go. Pick off teams and i know you said that. Ucla would may not be that team. I could see oregon being a team like that because it because what they do on in football and basketball and what they do with nike but ucla has a very large advantage. That i don't think people are really understanding here including going up against usc here that you are in los angeles. You were on the coast. You have a beautiful campus all of these things so if you can come out here and do your nfl stuff and make a lot of money just on the side while being at ucla on a nice campus and everything like that and still being the los angeles area to do all everything. It's got a lot more appeal than maybe it used to. It had when you had to think more about like. Oh if i go to u. Usc i'm going to. We're going to be great football team. You could still be that with the right players at ucla. Because of everything that they offer. I would also jumping here. Quick guy took that to me lends itself to the. Ucla does not go to whatever super conference there. Is you know what. I'm saying like if schools realized that the situation is hey great time crepe place love it you know what i mean screw championships. You know what i mean. Like i i think. Ucla falls into the category of that which leaves them out of whatever. The super league is not in a way that sort of shames face. You know what. I'm saying it's like hey you're building a different experience for the proverbial pros here in that the professional time of your life not just your sporting career but you could still win championships here at at that school i would look at ucla basketball. This last they were in the final four and there bring everybody back. It's the same type of situation. They can still really think. Ucla's gonna compete for football title. Women no absolutely not trip chip kelly so no. I'm not crazy by any means you can be done. It can be if you get the right coach if you get that can recruit the right players in the right way by by pushing off that on the nfl stuff. Yeah you can make a run just like any other school can. It's an sec. You can bring those guys to los angeles and play at ucla. Because you can't bring everybody usc so eventually you have to be able to get some of the guys i would always say. They're so what what will make. Ucla attractive to any conference. Should the pac twelve ever get picked off is the television market. I mean it's why. A school like boise state. Just as an example. They're not attractive. Because the boise idaho. Tv market is not attractive. Same goes for san diego state people for years of said. Gosh i wish. San diego state could join the pac twelve well. The twelve has no interest. They've got they've got usc and ucla. They've got the southern california tv market nailed down. They don't need san diego state just as an example. So i just think. Ucla will always be attractive to any conference because of the television market that they're in and to me that brings a lot of money. So i got it though clinton. Ucla's days as a football power are long behind them. And i don't see them getting to become a football power anytime soon. But still i. I still think. Ucla is an attractive commodity. I do i agree. And you know sunny helmets five. Why baby that's alright. Stick around coming up. Laura will have what you need to know next. But also i'm going to need to take time out on today's show and i'm gonna need to ask you guys for a piece of advice because something is happening in my home. That is embarrassing. It is Unsanitary it's making me crazy. And i just need a piece of help and probably needs some calls to see if anybody has a solution. Stick around what you need to know is coming up next. This is s. l. k. On seventeen espn..
